Neugent, 66, won the countys Republican vote in the District 2 election over second-time party challenger Danny Coll of Cudjoe Key.Democratic challenger Eleanor McAdams will face Neugent in the Nov. 4 general election for the four-year term.I think the last four years have been my most productive time as a county commissioner, Neugent said Tuesday.Ive spent a lot of time in Tallahassee dealing with [BP Deepwater Horizon funding] issues. I think that creates relationships and trust with a lot of the decision makers, he said. I hope it pays dividends for Monroe County. Aspects of the $162 million Cudjoe Key Regional Wastewater System were among issues that separated Neugent and Coll. Neugent largely supports the system as now designed. Coll believes the county should do more to reduce the number of grinder pumps in the system serving 9,000 homes and businesses.I have no regrets, Coll said. We all worked hard, calling people and holding signs to get out the vote. You can only do so much. I respect whatever decision the residents of the Florida Keys make.Neugent raised about $45,100 in contributions and in-kind donations. He has more than a dozen people or businesses making $1,000 contributions. Very little of that was solicited, Neugent said. Coll raised $18,825 in donations and another $6,653 of in-kind contributions. Former owner and an autoparts store and private ambulance company, Coll donated more than $17,000 himself. Coll, president-elect of the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce, has been active with volunteer fire-andambulance services.

That despite the issue being addressed at many levels for years, with housing panels appointed and given missions, only to see whatever reports they produce largely just end up sitting on shelves to gather dust.Elected officials from Monroe County, Marathon, Key West and others again are trying to tackle the problem of how to house Florida Keys workers, and started the effort Monday at the Marathon Government Center an at informal summit called by state Rep.

Keys get $913K in BP moneyA Deepwater Horizon settlement allocates a $913,728 slice for Monroe County.The settlement comes from $1 billion in civil fines levied against Transocean Deepwater Inc., which owned the BP oil rig that exploded and collapsed in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 men and leading to the largest oil spill in U.S. history. Obviously the biggest player in this is BP, said Lisa Tennyson, Monroe Countys legislative affairs director. BP is the one that will represent the lions share of the ultimate settlement or judgment.Transocean agreed in January 2013 to settle federal legal action against the firm for $1 billion in civil fines under the Clean Water Act, and $400 million more in criminal penalties. Transocean leased the Deepwater Horizon rig to BP and accepted the direction of BP well-site leaders to proceed in the face of clear danger signs, at a tragic cost, said a federal prosecutor in 2013. An estimated 200 million gallons of crude oil stained the gulf. Allocation of the Deepwater Horizon fines paid into the Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund falls under a complex formula created by the RESTORE Act. From the Transocean fines, Florida and four other states will each receive $44 million in direct component funding, also known as the local pot. Eight Florida Panhandle counties, the areas most directly harmed by the threemonth spill, will get a combined $33 million, or 75 percent of the states share. Monroe County stands among 15 least-affected Florida counties sharing the remaining $11 million. Although Deepwater Horizon oil apparently never reached Florida Keys waters, the threat of the massive spill caused significant harm to the local summer tourism economy as visitors canceled resort and fishing trips.Monroe Countys $913,728 award from the Transocean settlement is the third-highest amount among the less-affected counties, behind Hills boroughs $1.47 million and Pinellas $1.21 million.County officials had calculated about $1 million would come to the Keys, Tennyson said. The 11 members of the Monroe County RESTORE Act Advisory Committee, which includes appointments from the county and Keys municipalities, will meet Sept. 26 at the Marathon Government Center to begin the process of setting local priorities to spend the money. The committee has been kind of dormant for a while, Tennyson said. We didnt need to expend any resources or anyones time since there was nothing happening.Now that we have the rules and understand the application process, the committee can make more informed decisions about which projects they want to recommend.The Sept. 26 session likely will include a review of the Restore Act process and standards.Its just one portion of the overall paymentDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgSee Settlement, 2ASee Housing, 3A
More than two dozen governments, organizations and companies submitted requests for a combined $67.5 million from Monroe Countys share of the overall BP Deepwater Horizon oil-spill settlement. Estimates of Monroe Countys share, once the settlement from BP is banked, range from $5 million to $23 million. Local applications seek from $23 million to begin countywide canal waterquality improvements to environmental-education efforts costing about $35,000 to $50,000. The local RESTORE Act committee created the local application process last year but has not reviewed any applications that were submitted. We got up and running fast because everybody thought the Transocean settlement was a good sign that BP would soon settle, Tennyson said. That did not happen. The RESTORE Act is short for the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act passed by Congress in 2012 to funnel money to the region. Other proceeds will go toward environmental restoration and marine science. RESTORE Act proceeds are separate from economic claims filed by individuals and businesses.BP money starts flowingFrom Settlement, 1ACarroll rips Scott in new bookIn a new book, former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll describes the misery of working in a boys club led by Gov. Rick Scott, who showed no interest in her ideas to reach out to black and Hispanic voters. Carrolls story, When You Get There, hits bookstores today her birthday. By coincidence, her grievances about Scott are spilling into public view on the very day hes launching his general election campaign for a second term. Carroll, a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant commander, was the first black woman to serve as lieutenant governor of Florida and held the largely ceremonial job for more than two years. Scotts two top aides forced her to resign on March 12, 2013, after state law enforcement interrogated her about past public relations work for Allied Veterans of the World, a group linked to Internet cafes that were shut down after investigators uncovered widespread fraud.Carroll describes Scott as overly controlled by his own staff and lacking in a personal touch, saying he showed no concern after she fainted and struck her head on the floor at a hot Greek church. Clearly, something was missing there, some ability to make personal connections that he just didnt have, Carroll said.Working with black political consultant Clarence McKee in the 2010 campaign, Carroll said she built a plan to reach out to black voters with local newspapers, radio and phone calls and that despite the campaigns objections, she attended a forum in Miami hosted by Bishop Victor Curry, a radio host and prominent voice in Miamis black community. The campaign didnt want it, but I did it anyway, she writes. As a result, Carroll writes, Scott got 6 percent of the AfricanAmerican vote, according to 2010 exit polls, and if she had not directed a minority stealth campaign, Scott would have lost the election.By STEVE BOUSQUETHerald/Times Tallahassee KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday, August 27, 2014 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW WED.9284 THURS.9384 FRI.9284 SAT.9284 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers.For the extended forecast visitKeysInfoNet.com/weather.The Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

Avail.Panel: More protected marine areasNew ecological reserves should be considered as part of an updated marine zoning plan for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, local advisors say. The Sanctuary Advisory Council voted Aug. 19 to forward its review of protected marine areas along the Keys reef tract to federal and state officials, along with a request to consider large notake reserves covering contiguous, diverse and interconnected habitats. No specific locations for potential marine reserves, perhaps covering 25 square miles, were cited in the councils final motion, which passed unanimously. Marine ecological reserves have been shown throughout the world to be effective at protecting biodiversity and enhancing the fishery as well, council member Martin Moe, a marine biologist and reserve advocate, said Tuesday. In order to be effective, they have to be of a larger size, Moe said. Its wellproven science. The sanctuary is working on its first major rewrite of its management plan since 1997.The councils Ecosystem Protection Working Group, tasked with assessing the existing Sanctuary Protec tion Areas and larger Ecological Reserves, did not recommend any new large reserves after holding more than 20 meetings over the last year. The sanctuarys only existing ecological reserves are in the Dry Tortugas, and around Western Sambo in the Lower Keys. At the full Sanctuary Advisory Councils Aug. 19 meeting in Key Largo, some volunteer members said a new reserve should at least be considered for a slate of management-plan alternatives expected to be released for comment in mid-2015.Its mandatory that [a draft environmental impact statement] contains a nochange alternative, Moe said. It seems understandable and wise to have an alternative on the other end with larger areas of marine reserves.During consideration of the Ecosystem Protection Working Group recommendation, some council members worried it didnt go far enough to safeguard the sanctuarys ecosystem and marine resources. Council members who served on the Ecosystem Protection Working Group pointed to strong opposition from commercial and recreational fishing interests to new no-take areas especially large reserves.People who represented some interest groups were very passionate about their responsibility to protect their stakeholders, Joe Weatherby, a representative of recreational dive businesses, said Friday. At times we had opinions that were polar opposites.Council members also told sanctuary managers to consider creating a new protected area at Snapper Ledge off Tavernier. Divers have sought a Snapper Ledge zone for years. However, the Ecosystem Protection Working Group did not support the new zone, saying Upper Keys waters already have many protected reefs. In making its recommendation on possible changes to the management of the 2,900-square-mile Keys sanctuary, the advisory council also included suggestions for managers and staff to:Determine if current and suggested new marine protected areas is enough, not enough, or too much area proposed to be zoned.Evaluate the use of user fees as a tool to support resource management.Ask for a review of working-group suggestions that some areas be closed to all uses, and whether that would hinder research and invasive-species removal.Consider the effects of a proposed new protected area at Turtle Rocks in the Upper Keys, and suggested elimination of trolling at the Alligator Reef SPA off Islamorada.Explore declaring some protected areas as no-anchor zones that require boats to use the areas permanent mooring balls or boat tieoffs. If approved, time limits for using a mooring ball should be considered.See if allowing pole spearfishing in existing nospear areas, particularly the Upper Keys, could help reduce lionfish numbers.Evaluate a voluntary boater-education program, with the Everglades EcoMariner program cited as a model.After comments from other state and federal agencies are received, the sanctuary expects to release its draft alternatives in mid-2015. That starts a new public-hearing and comment process, leading to new rules might not take effect until 2017.There will be many more opportunities for members of the public to comment, said sanctuary spokeswoman Rachel Pawlitz.At an Oct. 21 meeting on Duck Key, the Sanctuary Advisory Council will take up other issues that review as part of the management-plan update. Those will include artificial reefs and habitats, conflicts between shallowwater boating and fishing, water quality, and a possible South Florida fishery management area.Next session for plan rewrite set for Duck KeyNATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY Chase ends with suspect not foundA thief yet to be caught traveled 86 miles on a stolen sport motorcycle Monday before abandoning it while being chased by Keys deputies.The thief ran away after dropping the Suzuki GSXR1000 motorcycle, stolen from Key West, on the ground behind Sands of the Keys, an office-equipment business at mile marker 86 in Islamorada. No arrests had been made at press time Tuesday.However, lawmen with the Key West Police Department and the Monroe County Sheriffs Office have plenty of visual evidence of the crime.The 4 a.m. theft from Applerouth Lane, not far from the Freeman Justice Center, was recorded by high-definition surveillance cameras set up by Kristopher Ball, the motorcycle owner and an information-technology professional. Ball told Key West officers that he woke up around 4:20 a.m. to take out the trash and discovered his 2012 motorcycle missing from a driveway. He went back inside to check what police describe as several highdefinition security cameras covering the building. The video showed two men looking at the motorcycle around 4:10 a.m. They picked up the bike and moved it to the street, where one started it and rode away. The other man apparently left by car. The thieves broke a steering lock on the Suzuki. Around 90 minutes later, a Sheriffs Office deputy driving south spotted the motorcycle headed north near mile marker 62 at Duck Key but was unable to pursue it.Deputy Rosary Ponce waited at mile marker 73 and soon saw the Suzuki. Ponce followed at normal speeds while joined by deputies Caridad Bellon and Ralph Williams.At mile marker 84 at Whale Harbor, Ponce turned on the patrol cars lights and siren to make a stop. The motorcycle operator slowed and pulled into the bike lane, then sped off. The lightweight, high-powered GSXR1000 is capable of speeds in excess of 150 mph.The deputies reported hitting 100 mph during a threemile chase before the motorcycle darted behind the Sands building. Deputies arrived moments later, finding the $10,000 motorcycle and a helmet, but no sign of the thief. An extensive search of the area by lawmen failed to find the suspect, described as wearing a camouflage hoodie sweatshirt.CRIME FRONTOutside help possible for beachThe seaweed buildup and loss of sand at Coco Plum Beach in Marathon continues to be a problem, city officials say, and they might look at trying to find outside funding to fix it.At its meeting Tuesday night, the City Council was expected to consider hiring an outside firm to suggest possible maintenance solutions for the beach, once pristine but now not so much.Its not just an issue of people going down to kick sand maintaining the beach is an environmental issue, too, Mayor Dick Ramsay said, noting the numerous sea turtle nests on the shoreline. The city acquired the beach in 1999 [when the city incorporated] and its one the nicest, longest beaches in the Florida Keys. I think everybody recognizes how important the beach is to the citys future.City Manager Mike Puto said the city is investigating whether a beach engineer someone who specializes in beach restoration can be hired through a matching grant. He didnt say where that grant would come from but the Monroe County Tourist Development Council does provide money to municipalities for capital improvements. Whether hiring a consultant falls under allowable funding wasnt clear at press time.But Puto said the city needs an outsiders perspective on how to move forward.We need someone to tell us how to preserve it. We cant just keep putting sand there and have it dissipate, Puto said. We need something to cover up the sand.Its a view Coco Plum Drive residents share. I consider the long-term stability of this beach to be the issue, said Lynda Berrigan, president of Coco Plum Beach Property Owners Association Inc. You cant even step on the seagrass thats there. The beach is in critical condition and I hope the city will make emergency appropriations.Berrigan suggests the city install a groin a structure built into the water on a beach to prevent erosion. Coco Plum Beach has a groin of limestone at the northeast end of the beach.The city maintains Coco Plum and Sombrero beaches through an $87,326 annual contract with Beach Raker, a Pompano Beach based company. The company rakes both beaches Monday and Friday mornings and takes the seaweed away.Public Works Director Carlos Solis said maintaining the beaches is tougher due to the state regulations pushing for more natural vegetation on shorelines to attract shorebirds.Coco Plum ills include loss of sandBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON POLITICS By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgKeynoter StaffCritics want Supremes to hear gill-net caseCritics of Floridas voterapproved ban on the use of gill fishing nets have asked the Florida Supreme Court to take up a challenge to the way the commercial-fishing measure has been carried out.The 1st District Court of Appeal last month overturned a decision by Leon County Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford that sided with the Wakulla Fishermens Association, a bait-shop owner and two mullet fishermen.Those critics argued that the 1994 constitutional amendment that placed strict limits on commercial fishing nets was being improperly applied by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. In overturning Fulford, the appeals court found that the issues in the case had been resolved in prior litigation.But in a brief filed last week with the Supreme Court, attorneys for the critics argued, in part, that new facts have arisen since the earlier litigation. New facts demonstrate that the challenged [FWC] rules were not promulgated to further a fishery management objective, the brief says. It is unclear when the Supreme Court will decide whether to hear the case. Current law allows fishermen to have two 500-squarefoot nets with 2-inch squares. Fishermen want the squares to be 3 inches. They believe nets with larger mesh sizes (gill nets) can catch target species primarily mullet while allowing juveniles to escape.The Florida Keys Com mercial Fishermens Associa tion joined other state commercial groups to seek status as an intervener.Nets can be a responsible method of harvest with reasonable limitations in place, Bill Kelly, the groups executive director, has said. What the industry is seeking is to have the FWC [board of directors] sit down with fishermen to discuss how to better manage fisheries. The industry hopes to come to the table with the FWC and interested environmental groups to see if there is common ground to better manage underutilized fisheries like Spanish mackerel, he has said.

Combined, they will have around 535 rooms that need housekeepers, landscapers, front-desk staff, restaurant and bar staff, and more.And on Rockland Key, a developer plans to build a 335,000-square-foot shopping center that some people estimate will need 600 workers.In the Middle Keys, a 125-room Hyatt and 95room Courtyard by Marriott are under construction in Old Town, and another 89-room hotel is planned for the other end of town. In the Upper Keys, there are smaller but still more projects. County Commissioner Heather Carruthers said while workers can commute from Miami-Dade County, as they do now via a MiamiDade Transit bus, the Keys will need workers who live and spend their money here. Projected future demographics are another concern as the population of people 65 and older and 18 and younger is projected to grow while the 19-to-64 demographic is projected to shrink, Carruthers said, citing studies and think tanks.When we look out in 50 years, were seeing a real squeeze. The people in the wage-earning years, the machinery for this economy, is diminishing, Carruthers said. For us to continue to expect workers from MiamiDade when theyre facing the same things is shortsighted. We have to take a huge and comprehensive look at this.The Florida Conflict Resolution Consortium at Florida State University presented the following information to a packed audience of residents, business owners and government officials:According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau, Monroe Countys population is 73,090. The population is projected to decline to 70,901 by 2020 and 66,700 by 2040.Monroe County is the most expensive of all 67 Florida counties and among the costliest in the U.S.More than half of homeowners and renters pay at least 30 percent of their income for housing. Thirty percent is considered the cutoff for what one should be paying.The consortium wants to ask Monroe County residents questions such as: Should the county convene a stakeholder committee to develop recommendations on workforce housing in Monroe County? and What information is needed in terms of workforce housing programs in Monroe County? In addition to a growing wage and housing gap, environmental issues related to housing are also a concern. Donald Craig, Key Wests planning director, said rising sea levels and height restrictions on homes will push for increased insurance premiums and higher rent prices. County Mayor Sylvia Murphy said she had opposed increasing allowable building heights in the past but is changing her view due to climate change and rising seas.This is the fourth goaround of hopefully forming an affordable housing committee to work with people who knows whats going, cares whats going on and has input to offer, Murphy said.The last time a similar effort was made that Murphy can remember was in 2007, right before the economy took a dive. Tuesday, the Marathon City Council was expected to appoint members to a city housing committee.To see the Conflict Resolution Consortium wants to ask, send an e-mail to Director Robert Jones at email@example.com. Monroe County Growth Management Division Director Christine Hurley and Executive Assistant Myra Tezanos are also taking perspectives.

Theyre also handing out warnings to area residents. Two people were bitten by a crocodile while they were swimming in a Coral Gables canal around 2 a.m. Sunday, said Jorge Pino, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Both were taken to South Miami Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and were released Monday, Pino said. The victims were identified as Alejandro Jimenez, 26, and Lisset Rendon, 23. Jimenez and Rendon were swimming in a canal in the 1300 block on Lugo Avenue during a party when a croc, described as eight to nine feet, bit the man in the arm, shoulder and back, Pino said. It is unclear what injuries Rendon suffered. The bite happened right behind the residence. We dont know why these two individuals would be in a canal thats known to have crocodiles at such hour, Pino said. On Monday, Coral Gables police were going door to door, handing out guides on living with crocodiles. Crocodile warning signs are posted throughout the area.In May in Key Largo, a pit bulldog named Tyson escaped from an unusual crocodile attack in a canal. The American crocodile an aggressive juvenile male measuring about 5 feet, 6 inches was captured by state wildlife agents for relocation.Dog owner Emilie Stewart said then that wildlife agents told her: If it was a smaller dog or a bigger crocodile, Tyson would not have survived. As it turned out, the muscular 65-pound Tyson escaped with puncture bite wounds on his left shoulder and ankle. He was treated by Dr. Martha Edwards at the Island Hammock Pet Hospital and released. The crocodile, weighing about 40 pounds, came up from beneath Tyson as the dog went for one of his regular midday swims in the Center Lane Canal, a waterway in the Stillwright Point subdivision off mile marker 105.3 bayside. Tyson was bitten and pulled under, but turned to snap at the toothy reptile and broke free.As the dog swam back to a backyard boat ramp, the crocodile chased him. Stewart distracted the crocodile by snapping a towel at it while Tyson climbed out of the water.A 10-foot crocodile killed a Key Largo familys 65pound dog near mile marker 103 in March 2012. Key Largo has the highest density of American crocodiles outside of Everglades National Park, though they have been seen as far south as Marathon. They seem to prefer bayside mangroves and creeks more than the open Atlantic Ocean waters, but they do roam. Nearly extinct a few decades ago, American crocodiles have rebounded to an estimated population of about 2,000 animals larger than hatchlings. They are a protected species, and FWC agents try not to remove a nuisance crocodile unless it measures 9 feet or longer. Some Florida Keys residents would prefer to see all American crocodiles removed. But despite the occasional attack, they are not considered to be a danger.

Rick Scott on Monday was expected to roll out a series of education proposals that touches on everything from high-stakes testing to the cost of college and represents a break from some of the signature moves put in place by former Gov. Jeb Bush.Scott wants to create an independent committee to review the states contentious school standards even though a year ago he called for public hearings that resulted in tweaks to the standards based primarily on Common Core. That new committee could come up with additional changes to the standards now in place in Floridas classrooms.The Republican incumbent governor also says he will direct Education Commissioner Pam Stewart to do a thorough and comprehensive investigation of the use of standardized tests that were the centerpiece of the overhaul initiated when Bush was governor. Bush tied the states A-to-F grading of schools, which includes sanctions and rewards, to how students performed on standardized tests. Scott also proposes a higher education platform that maintains that if he wins re-election he would continue to keep tuition rates down and will find a way to drive down college textbooks costs. He also wants to force state universities to disclose more information about the cost of courses and fees. Everyone in Florida deserves to live the American dream and that starts with a great education, Scott said. Education, along with jobs and the economy, is quickly becoming a flashpoint in this years governors race where Scott remains essentially tied with chief Democratic rival Charlie Crist, who was favored in Tuesdays Democratic primary.After getting hammered by Crist over school budget cuts he endorsed during his first year in office, Scott last week promised a $700 million increase to public schools for 2015. If legislators agree, it would be a $50 increase in per-student funding over what it was during Crists first year in office without adjusting for inflation.It comes as election goes to general voteBy GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressEDUCATION Keys InfoNet.com
A Florida judge on Friday gave a victory to the states Republican-controlled Legislature, rendering a decision that effectively forces voters to choose candidates in November based on a congressional map that he ruled was invalid because it favored the GOP.In Leon County, Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis approved a new congressional map that been swiftly adopted earlier this month during a special session. But he agreed with attorneys for the Legislature that there was no time to implement the new map before voters head to the polls this year. Floridas primary is next Tuesday.David King, an attorney for the groups that sued the Legislature over the district boundaries, said they were disappointed with the decision and planned to appeal the ruling. The groups had been heartened by the judges July ruling invalidating the 2012 map, but said the redrawn map offered little more than cosmetic changes and was still unconstitutional. They had hoped the judge would either adopt a map proposed by them or draw up one on his own. Voters in 2010 passed the Fair Districts amendment that says legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party, a practice known as gerrymandering. The League of Women Voters of Florida and other groups that sued contended GOP consultants used a shadow process in 2012 to draw districts that benefited Republicans and violated the new standards.Lewis agreed there was enough evidence to show that consultants helped manipulate the process and ruled that two districts were invalid. The two districts flagged by Lewis were a sprawling district held by Democratic U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown and a Central Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, a Republican. Legislators this month adopted a new map that alters seven of the states existing 27 districts and shifts nearly 400,000 voters in Central and North Florida. But the new map keeps intact to a large degree Browns district, which stretches from Jacksonville to Orlando and at one point is no wider than a highway bridge.Lewis conceded that the changes may not be perfect, but he said that lawmakers did enough to cure problems he had found with the existing district. The Legislature is not required, however, to produce a map that the plaintiffs, or I, or anyone else might prefer, Lewis wrote in his four-page ruling. The Legislature is only required to produce a map that meets the requirements of the Constitution. My duty is not to select the best plan, but rather to decide whether the one adopted by the Legislature is valid.

SURPRISINGLY LOW PRICE108180_Miami Seafood Fest ROP_10x10 Signed up yet? www.conchscramble.comSaturday, September 27 For some, ACA not neededWhen she was 8 weeks old, Ashlyn Whitney suffered a severe respiratorytract infection that put her in an intensive care unit for 12 days. Because she was so young, she couldnt handle it, Ashlyns mother Nicole Whitney recalled. They had to give her oxygen. The baby, now a year old, recovered from her illness, known as respiratory syncytial virus. The bill for her treatment at the West Boca Medical Center in Palm Beach County came to about $100,000 a sum that included almost $4,000 in fees for her birth and preand post-natal care but every dime of the tab was picked up by a medical bill-sharing organization set up for its Christian membership. Such religious groups are exempt from the Affordable Care Acts mandate that most Americans obtain health insurance or pay a penalty. Although as many as 30 million Americans will remain without health insurance by 2016, despite the best efforts of the ACAs proponents, all but about 7 million of them will be spared having to join the new system because of exemptions created by the act itself, according to an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation. The exempted religious organizations generally pool their members money to pay the medical expenses of anyone in the group who gets sick, injured or becomes pregnant. Also exempted from the law are members of federally recognized religious sects who have religious objections to insurance or to such systems as Social Security or Medicare. Most of the other 20 exemptions address circumstantial situations such as homelessness, eviction, foreclosure, bankruptcy, the death of a close family member or an experience with domestic violence. Members of Native American tribes are also free to not sign up for health insurance, as are those whose income is too low or who are serving a prison sentence. The organization that Nicole Whitney and her husband, Jonathan, joined two years ago was MediShare, a program set up in 1993 by the Melbournebased, not-for-profit Christian Care Ministry, which says on its website that its members make the rules and their dollars dont support unbiblical choices such as abortion, or drug or alcohol abuse. The ministrys medical director, Dr. Andrea Miller, who also holds the title of vice president of sharing, said its members are believers who just wanted to share each others burdens and didnt want to deal with health insurance. If a member of the group gets sick, she said, they could all help out.PhilosophyOf Medi-Shares 100,000 members nationwide a number that reflects an increase of about 30,000 since the ACAs open enrollment began last fall 7,700 are in Florida, according to the groups public-relations representative. She said an additional 200,000 people are members of two other national organizations with similar programs. Joining such plans, Miller said, is often as much a philosophical decision as it is a financial one. People are looking to take care of themselves and each other, said Miller, who was the medical director of a hospice before she was hired by the Christian Care Ministry two years ago. They want to be connected, and they dont want to pay for things that are immoral. By immoral she meant abortion, Miller said, but not necessarily contraception, which she said some of Medi-Shares members probably support. The other piece of this is living a biblical lifestyle and a healthy lifestyle, Miller noted, referring to the fact that the ministry provides health coaches who contact members suffering from health problems such as obesity and attendant issues with high blood pressure and excessive cholesterol levels and advise them on how to get healthier. In practical terms, MediShare members contribute to each others care by depositing an agreed-upon amount the Whitneys pay $1,250 a year, although some families pay more than twice that into an account at Americas Christian Credit Union. The deposits act as deductions, meaning that once a family has used that money for its healthcare bills, any new family medical expenses are covered by Medi-Shares fellow members. Medi-Share negotiates with providers to obtain an average of 30 percent in discounts on medical bills incurred by its members. In the past 21 years, Miller said, the organization has shared about $750 million, including the discounts. The system is not open to just anyone. You have to be a Christian, Nicole Whitney said. You have to show regular church attendance, that you lead a religious life. Before giving birth to her son, Sebastian, in 2011, Whitney had worked for six years as a fifth-grade teacher at a Christian school in Deerfield Beach, and had been covered by that institutions insurance plan. When she left the school and bought a plan for herself and her newborn, she was suddenly paying a premium of about $900 a month. I couldnt afford it, Whitney said. But a friend told her good things about the Medi-Share program, and she was able to join. Whitney said she didnt really consider signing up for a plan under the ACAs insurance marketplace.The alternativeI felt like I didnt know enough about Obamacare, said Whitney, who is 33 and lives in Boca Raton. Im glad I had an alternative. A fellow Medi-Share member, Paul White, who signed up in 2005, said he will never drop the religious groups plan in favor of one established by the ACA. I didnt want all the hassles, said White, 63, a father of three who lives with his wife, Carol, in Miami. He had been covered by a corporate insurance plan for 28 years as an employee of a commercial real estate company before retiring in 2001. A few years ago, after joining Medi-Share, White broke his left leg in what he called a silly household accident. He wore a cast for three months, but his medical expenses were covered. When he was first asked to pay $1,250 as an annual deductible for his family, White recalled being taken aback. At that point, it sounded like a lot, he said. But now it seems cheap. I have no worries.

Suzy Curry Charlotte Quinn Sue Lovley MarathonWeb provider offers helpWith thousands of students in South Florida back in class this week, theyll fill their backpacks with things theyll need to get the new school year off to a great start like notebooks, folders and pencils. Although it doesnt fit inside a backpack, broadband Internet access is also a necessity for families with children heading back to school. In todays increasingly digital world, the Internet serves as an important educational tool to connect students to resources and information.Internet Essentials from Comcast, the nations largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program and the main cable provider in the Keys, aims to help bridge the digital divide by providing low-cost Internet access to qualified families. To date, Comcast has connected nearly 50,000 Florida families, or about 200,000 low-income Floridians, through Internet Essentials. Through Sept. 20, qualified South Florida families who apply and are approved for Internet Essentials will be eligible for six months of free service.In addition, Comcast has created an amnesty program for certain lowincome families who could qualify for Internet Essentials but have a past due balance. Customers who have an outstanding bill that is more than one year old are now eligible for the program. Comcast will offer amnesty for that debt for the purpose of connecting to Internet Essentials so long as the customer meets all the other eligibility criteria. Parents should look for Internet Essentials information from your childs school, or visit www.Internet Essentials.com or call (855) 846-8376 (for Spanish, visit www.Internet Basico.com or call (855) 765-6995). Jeanie Hernandez, director Comcast South Florida Government Affairs MiamiState leaders silent on Ferguson, raceGUEST COLUMNThe silence scares me. The silence Im referring to is from our so-called state leaders in Tallahassee. Its not that theyre shy; mention anything or anyone connected to President Obama and the muzzles are torn off, the attacks are unleashed. But force them to look at their own backyards and they fumble, they stutter, they glare, they shrug: Its not our problem, its not our state, its not our town. Yet Ferguson is our town. Missouri is our state. So long as there are black men, black boys, black women and black girls, Ferguson, Missouri is every town in every state, including Florida. And its problem is ours. People of color have, for too long, felt the separate and unequal treatment by police. Being pulled over while black has been a reality Ive faced through most of my adolescence and adulthood: as a high school student in Miami, a college student in Tallahassee and as a professional in both cities. And Im not alone. Incredibly, during these years, rarely has there been a governor or cabinet member that has spoken up to address or condemn the issue of disparate treatment, stubbornly preserving the dont ask, dont tell attitude that dominates the Tallahassee ivory tower. But the blinders dont make the problem go away; they only stoke the fires of resentment until something gives, something explodes and the streets erupt with hands lifted and the defiant cries of Dont shoot! Unfortunately, the avoidance coupled with the lack of leadership has only allowed things to get worse. The tragic deaths of Trayvon Martin in Sanford and Jordan Davis in Jacksonville should have sent a clear message that something has to change. Yet the governor and cabinet sat silent and offered no solace to those families and no leadership to the people. When countless Floridians marched and begged for a change to Stand Your Ground not for political reasons, but out of fear for their childrens lives the governor instead endorsed making the law tougher. So here we are as a country, taken aback by the blood on the streets of Ferguson, the death of a young man who had his hands up, asking the question, Can I live? and we hear nothing from the leadership in Florida. Just as we didnt see an eyebrow raised when the Sanford Police Department was ready to write off Trayvon Martins killing as justified without an investigation. Or that this year, the Fruitland Police Department had no fewer than three members of its force moonlighting as members of the Ku Klux Klan. Or that a black woman should be retried as an aggressor for firing a warning shot in self-defense. My message to leadership is a simple one. Be a leader for all Floridians, not just the ones who write checks to your campaigns. And remember that the lessons from Ferguson have already been written in the history books of Florida. Read them, and the silence will be unbearable. Sen. Dwight Bullard represents District 39, which consists of Monroe, Hendry and parts of Miami-Dade and Collier counties.

This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.Local governments now crafting spending plans for fiscal year 2014-15Summer in the Keys means more than beating the heat and lobstering. It means the residents need to pay careful attention to what their elected officials are doing even though it might seem to be a slow time. Thats because this is when the governments and agencies that levy property taxes are crafting their spending plans for the 2014-15 fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Lots can slip through if the taxpayers arent paying attention. In usual economic cycles, property values rise and they fall. This has been especially true in recent years due to the real estate boom that went around 2008, 2009, 2010. In the lean times, those who set the taxes often set higher property tax rates because they know low rates would generate little in the way of taxpayer money. The opposite is true, too: When values rise, they can set tax rates low and say they are lowering property taxes even though often, its not the actual amount of money you pay thats going down, its just the rate itself. So with all of our taxing entities spending their summer creating their future spending plans, now is the time to pay attention to what theyre prioritizing and to what theyre not. All of these agencies, in addition to conducting budget workshops and meetings, must hold two public hearings when they formally adopt proposed tax rates. Those are your final say into spending though by then, most of the heavy lifting has already been done. Still, it pays to go and to know. Following are their public hearings:City of Key West: 6 p.m. Sept. 4 and 17 at Old City Hall, 510 Greene St.City of Key Colony Beach: 5:30 p.m. Sept. 4 and 10 at City Hall, 600 W.

Insect threatens iconic Florida citrus cropsThe tourists stream to Florida in their cars, intent on a week at Disney or a sugarsand seashore or a nonstop party on South Beach. Road weary and thirsty, they pull over at one of the states five official welcome centers. They walk inside, and then they look up.The best start under the sun, reads a big sign. FLORIDA ORANGE JUICE.Behind a counter, a woman sits with a stack of paper cups. Welcome to Florida, she says with a big smile. Orange or grapefruit?The juice is cold and sweet. It tastes like the Sunshine State. Once, emerald green trees bursting with citrus carpeted more than half of the state, from the northern reaches of Jacksonville and the parks of Orlando to the Miami coastline. Oranges, especially, have long been synonymous with the magic of Florida.But now the $9 billion industry is facing its biggest threat yet beyond development and other factors, putting at risk the states economy and very identity. Blame a mottled brown bug no bigger than a pencil eraser and a disease called the yellow dragon.Have you seen those commercials that begin with a farmers leather-gloved hands opening to reveal a blossom that ripens into an orange? The ads are for Floridas Natural juice, and Ellis Hunt Jr. is the man behind the brand.Tall and thin, wearing jeans and a plain white buttondown with a Florida-honed tan on his 61-year-old face, Hunt could star in one of those spots. His family owns 5,000plus acres of groves and is part of the co-op that contributes to Floridas Natural the third-largest juice brand in the country, behind Pepsis Tropicana and Coca-Colas Minute Maid.This summer, Hunts has been driving his truck through his groves in Polk County, the states top citrusproducing region, and what he sees is uncertainty. Hunt stops his truck, climbs out and points to a trees limb. Some leaves have turned yellow, and the hue is spreading in waves. He guesses that 75 percent of his groves are infected. In China, where it was first found, the disease is called huanglongbing. Translation: The yellow dragon. In Florida, its known simply as greening.It arrived here via a tiny invasive bug called the Asian Citrus Psyllid, which carries bacteria that are left behind when the psyllid feeds on a citrus trees leaves. The tree continues to produce useable fruit, but eventually disease clogs the vascular system. Fruit falls, and the tree slowly dies.The psyllid isnt native to Florida but is believed to have arrived from someone who perhaps unknowingly brought a slip of a tree from Asia. The bug was first spotted in the state in 1998. All of that has Floridas growers in a frenzy to find a way to stop the disease. It feels like youre in a war, Hunt said.Increased costHunt estimates hes spending some $2,000 an acre on production costs, a 100 percent increase from 10 years ago. Much of that goes toward nutrients and spraying to try to control the psyllids. The trees that dont survive are pulled out of the earth and tossed onto a giant bonfire.Nearly all of the states citrus groves are affected in varying degrees by greening, and researchers, growers and experts agree that the crisis has already started to compromise Floridas prominence as a citrus-growing region. Florida is second in the world, behind Brazil, in growing juice oranges, producing about 80 percent of juice in the U.S. This past growing season, the state produced 104 million boxes of oranges, which comprise the bulk of Floridas overall citrus crop. In 2003, two years before greening was discovered and prior to several devastating hurricanes, 243 million boxes were picked. This affects the whole state. The economic impact. The landscape. The iconic image of Florida and how it has drawn people here to smell the orange blossoms in the spring and look forward to that Christmas gift of fresh Florida citrus, said state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, whose family has grown oranges in Polk County since the early 1900s. It will have a ripple effect throughout the economy if we cant get our arms around this disease. Experts say that if a solution isnt found, Floridas entire citrus industry could collapse. Officials worry that some packinghouses and processing plants will have to close because of a lack of fruit. That could send the industry, with its 75,000 jobs, tumbling.Yellow dragon infection rate is staggeringBy TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressHORTICULTURE BULLARD Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSProtesters stand on a street in Ferguson, Mo., to protest the killing of a teen by a police officer.

E-book readers are great for reading books, but they cant be used get directions or watch videos of people dumping ice over their heads. Tablets can.In partnership with Sam sung, Barnes & Noble released a reading-centric tablet last week, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. Amazon, meanwhile, has the Kindle Fire tablets.Of course, you can simply install Nook and Kindle reading apps on an iPad or a nonNook Galaxy. The iPad even comes with iBooks installed. Are reading-centric tablets really a better way to experience the printed word? Lets take a closer look.Galaxy 4 NookIt costs $179. Turn it on, and youre greeted with a banner that takes up roughly the top third of your screen. This is your library, where youll find novels, comic books, magazines and newspapers that youve recently read or purchased, along with non-reading content that Barnes & Noble sells namely, movies, TV shows and games. This library banner isnt available on other devices, though Amazon tablets have a similar feature called Carousel. If theres a book or newspaper you read regularly, you can pin it to the home screen. Usually, you can do that only with apps.A book icon on the lower left corner of the home screen takes you to where you left off in the Nook reading app. If you stop reading to send an e-mail, you can click the book icon to relaunch the Nook app and resume reading. This feature is also found only on the Nook tablet. Unfortunately, you have to go back to the home page first.The tablets reading app works much like the one on other devices. You see what page youre on and the number of pages left, but not the estimated time left to finish. The app on the Nook tablet and other Android devices also lets you hide the devices status bar, so youre not distracted by notifications at the top. That way, youre not tempted to set aside your book to check Facebook. Unfortunately, the iPhone and iPad version doesnt offer that option. At roughly the size of a paperback, the Samsung Nook tablet feels nice in my hands. The Nook GlowLight e-reader, which Barnes & Noble designed on its own, has a larger frame surrounding the display. That makes it bulky, even though its screen is just 6 inches diagonally, compared with 7 inches on the Nook tablet. Beyond that, the new Nook tablet works just like any other Android device. It doesnt outshine rivals, but it works well at the basics. You can buy e-books, movies and other content through Barnes & Noble. Or you can use Googles online Play store though youll need Googles apps to read or watch what you buy there. One disappointment: Although you can create separate profiles for members of the family, including limited-use ones for kids, you need to use the same Barnes & Noble account across the various profiles.Kindle Fire HDXThis starts at $229. Although the Kindle Fire uses Android, Amazon has modified it so much that it has little resemblance to other Android tablets. And theres no Google Play store to be found. Everything gets bought through Amazon. While you can install a Kindle app on the Nook tablet, you cant get Nook on the Kindle because Amazons store doesnt have it. The Kindle reading app is good and comparable to whats found on the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader and the Kindle apps for other devices. You get not just the page number, but also the estimated time left based on your reading speed. And Amazon has packed its devices with reading extras, such as quick access to character summaries, details about places mentioned and other information culled from other sources. The Kindle Fire is less reading-centric than the Nook. A tab up top offers quick access to shopping, for instance. The Kindle is also too big to grip comfortably with one hand. The 7-inch version of the Kindle Fire has the same screen dimensions as the Nook, but the Kindle has a larger frame. The width is more like that of a CD case than a paperback. That said, the Kindles screen resolution is better than the Nooks, so text looks sharper. Theres also a Quiet Time button to block notifications. Its easily accessible by swiping from the top, whereas the feature to hide the status bar on the Nook is buried in the settings. You can turn Quiet Time on and off manually, enable it during certain hours every day or have it turn on automatically when youre doing a specific task, such as reading a book or watching a movie. The Kindle also comes in several flavors. Theres a larger one, with an 8.9 inch screen. There are also versions with cellular capabilities. The only choice you get with the Nook tablet is the color of the frame. Only the 8.9-inch Kindles have rear cameras, though at 8 megapixels. Although you cant set up separate profiles for others in your family, you can enable a kids mode with restrictions on use.And the restI still believe dedicated ereaders are better for reading. Hiding the status bar and turning on Quiet Time can help block distractions, but with ereaders, you dont have distractions to begin with. The Kindle Paperwhite is the best of the e-readers Ive tried.A tablet is good if you want to do more than reading and dont want to carry multiple devices. I dont think youll want to buy either the Nook or the Kindle Fire simply because its a reading-centric tablet. Youd want them because they are good tablets.But they are not the only good tablets out there.

And the overpriced can of soda may be the least of your issues with the hotel minibar.Vacationers are finding it harder to anticipate the true cost of their stay, especially because many of these charges vary from hotel to hotel, even within the same chain.Coming out of the recession, the travel industry grew fee-happy. Car rental companies charged extra for services such as electronic toll collection devices and navigation systems. And airlines gained notoriety for adding fees for checking luggage, picking seats in advance, skipping lines at security and boarding early. Hotel surcharges predate the recession, but recently properties have been catching up to the rest of the industry.The airlines have done a really nice job of making hotel fees and surcharges seem reasonable, says Bjorn Hanson, a professor at New York Universitys hospitality school.This year, hotels will take in a record $2.25 billion in revenue from such add-ons, 6 percent more than in 2013 and nearly double that of a decade ago, according to a new study released Monday by Hanson. Hanson says guests need to be extra-attentive to the fine print. Fewer and fewer services come for free.Need to check out by noon but dont have a flight until after dinner? Hotels once stored luggage as a courtesy. Now, a growing number charge $1 or $2 per bag.Shipping something to the hotel in advance of your trip? There could be a fee.Saying noSome guests are revolting.Royce Breckon travels frequently for his job marketing outdoor sporting equipment but refuses to spend the night at any hotel charging for Internet. Charges typically range from $10 to $25 a night.You can walk into just about any coffee shop and have it for free, Breckon says.Hotels first started adding surcharges in 1997, mostly at resorts with expansive pools, tennis courts and fancy gyms. The so-called resort fees paid for staff to set up beach umbrellas and lounge chairs. Three years later, hotels added energy surcharges to cover rising utility bills. Hotels then refrained from adding any major surcharge for several years. But as airlines and car rental agencies made fees commonplace, hotels started to think up new ones, collecting record amounts in each of the past four years, according to Hansons research. Even the in-room minibar a decades-old splurge isnt safe from the add-ons. At the Liberty Hotel in Boston a cold can of Coke from the minibar costs $5. Thats just the base price. The fine print on the menu reveals an 18-percent administrative fee to restock the bar. Elsewhere, the in-room offerings more conspicuous. Jimmy R. Howell was shocked by the W San Diegos efforts to sell him snacks and drinks. Usually these extras are kept under lock and key, Howell says. At the W, they were strewn about the room, above the bar, on the desk, nightstands and in the bathroom. It seems like an effort to tempt you.Even moving an item in the minibar can generate a fee.The Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, like many other hotels, bills items to guests rooms if sensors in the minibar note they have been removed for more than 60 seconds enough time, hotels say, to read the nutritional information and make a decision. The Aria goes one step further. It also charges a $25 a day personal use fee if a guest puts their own soda or bottled water in the minibar. Theyre now taking tack airlines useBy SCOTT MAYEROWITZAssociated PressTOURISMDo reading tablets compare?Lots of extras but they can be distractionBy ANICK JESDANUNAssociated PressTECH REVIEW Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook that will replace Barnes & Nobles Nook. The Holiday Inn Express in Marathon charges $75 to have a pet with you during the length of your stay. However, that charge is clearly noted on the hotels web page, not a hidden fee as is charged for lots of things at lots of hotels. www.Keys InfoNet.com

Story, 2B Friday nights Key West High preseason football game was illuminated by first-half sunshine, the home teams bright new red and white uniforms and, later, under the lights, three dazzling touchdown runs. The Conchs ran past La Salle, 33-13, before a large crowd at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium and more cheerleaders than could be counted. The game unfolded slowly with a scoreless first quarter in which the Conchs squandered an opportunity deep in La Salle territory. There was a dropped pass in the end zone and then a botched field-goal try. In the second quarter, Key West senior quarterback Andrew Freeman completed a 27-yard touchdown pass to Josh Shaddock, who caught he ball on the run in the end zone. That 7-0 lead increased to 14-0 before the half when Laurence Marius stepped smartly in front of a receiver to intercept a pass and run 35 yards for a TD. After the Royal Lions had cut the lead to 14-7 in the third, Jeffery Anilus returned the ensuing kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown, a stirring run that was unseen by the politicians gathered next to a concessions stand. Later in the quarter, Anilus scored on a 58-yard run that increased the lead to 27-7. Dorian Cannon scored the final Conch touchdown on a 68-yard run. Writing in the game program, coach Johnny Hughes called Cannon and Anilus Thunder and Lightning.Hughes was happy with a defense that showed a lot of speed and swarmed to the ball, a running game that gained 293 yards and an offensive line that played well with three new starters.He wasnt happy with two turnovers that werent forced by jarring hits, a special-teams unit that missed two field goals and an extra point, and a passing game that needs to be sharpened.Running back Mehki Sargent, 30 pounds heavier than he was last season when he was the Conchs leading ground gainer, injured his knee in the first half. He has water on the knee, Hughes said.Sargent is expected to play Friday night when the Conchs open the regular season at 7 oclock against visiting Keys Gate.

Hurricanes host Springs CharterA Coral Shores High football team with its goals set high launches the season against one of the strongest squads on the Hurricane schedule. Coral Springs Charter, with 20 returning seniors from a 2013 squad that went 8-2, arrives at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium for the Canes 7:30 p.m. Friday home opener. We just need to play a game, Coral Shores head coach Ed Holly said Tuesday. Weve been practicing hard for three weeks now, and we need to see where we stand. The Canes also went 8-2 last season before falling to eventual South Florida Football Conference champ John Carroll in the league semifinals. Coral Shores returns its starting backfields, both offensive and defensive, but must rebuild its offensive line for the new season. A solid corps of senior running backs with Henry Jacobsen, Eddie Dunn and George Jacobsen is back, along with second-year starting quarterback Nick Frisone. The Canes gained about 3,000 yards on the ground last fall. Darren Govan and Juan Mayo are experienced wideouts. On the line, juniors Andy Williams and David Bautista are second-year starters, and junior guard Chris OBerry saw plenty of action. Sam Kraus moves from JV starter to varsity at center. Were still working on our quick-tackle spot, and we need to find a tight end to replace [conference player of the year] Anthony Rice, Holly said. Coral Shores expects to have a stellar defensive backfield with veterans Paul Pauchey, Govan and Mayo but it be tested against a Coral Springs offense that throws about 50 times a game, Holly said. Eddie Dunn, Ariel Correa, Brian Cash and Brian Gonzalez fill the linebacker spots.Jose Bravo, Logan Rowe, Bobby Griffin, Williams, OBerry and Baustista will share work along the defensive line. Dante Jiovenetta, a junior defensive lineman, emerged as a tremendous preseason surprise, Holly said.The Canes have suffered from preseason injuries but more from on-the-water activity than football, said the coach. Kiteboarding, lobster boats and spearfishing, Holly said, but were getting healthier every day. Were ready to go.In other Coral Shores early-season events this week:Coral Shores swimmers race Marathon High, Keys Gate Charter and Riviera School at 4 p.m. today at the Founders Park Aquatic Center, mile marker 87.The Lady Hurricane volleyball team hosts Florida Christian at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Last year, Boca Raton was 6-3, Davis said. A couple of teams they beat last year beat us, so itll be interesting to see how it turns out.Roster-wise, Marathon (28 last season) has a slight edge with 28 players against Boca Ratons 22. Davis said the Blazers are returning their quarterback, running back and linemen, upping the difficulty for the Dolphins. But Davis sees no reason why his team cant compete Friday. With winning, its never against the opponent its always against us, Davis said. If we come out and do the things were supposed to do, well win the ball game.Part of the strategy will include junior quarterback Max Elliot making the right throws and junior running back Sean Roberts gauging the right reads in defensive holes.On defense, Davis is looking for his linemen, such as seniors Mark Keller and Tommy Lancaster, to come out and block, to stopmotion down the field and create a few turnovers.Another challenge the Dolphins face is Boca Ratons wing-T offense, for which Davis said his team has not practiced. Marathon has been running a 3-4 and 4-4 defense, which are more general defensive patterns. Fridays game will prove if its enough to stop Boca Raton.If we can take care of business on special teams and create a few turnovers defensively, theres no reason we shouldnt win this ball game, Davis said. Swimming startsThis week also starts the Marathon swim teams season as the Dolphins face Key West at the Florida Keys Community College pool on Stock Island today at 5 p.m. Marathon coach Sarah Maschal said her team is traveling to Founders Park in Islamorada for practice since being ejected from Sombrero Resort and Marina earlier this month. The team has yet to find a local pool in which to practice.Boca Christian brings veterans for 7:30 startBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALLOffshore gets a bit busierThe past week, theres been a slight uptick in the offshore fisheries for dolphin and tuna. Decent-size dolphin are being taken mostly on weed lines. Some are in the 20-pound class, but most are keeper-size schoolies.The humps are producing catches of blackfin and skipjack tuna on a fairly regular basis. As typical, the larger tuna are taken on butterfly jigs and live baits fished deep. But be aware the sharks are taking their toll.The Atlantic reef and wreck action has been consistent of late. There are plenty of mangroves and yellowtails in the 35to 60-foot depths, with nice muttons and the usual assortment of jacks on the deeper wrecks.We saw increased numbers of cero mackerel taking a whack at the ballyhoo this past week. Some of these are approaching 10 pounds. Not only are these ceros fun to catch, but they make excellent ceviche.The mangroves are beginning to show again in the bay and around the bridges. Its quite the mix in size, ranging from sublegal to as big as four pounds. The largest fish are taking small pilchards and small live ballyhoo. So check out your favorite spot and see what its got. Dont be afraid to move around until you find some life.Recreational lobstering varies by area. Snorkeling in just six to nine feet of relatively clear water has a high success rate and is very doable for even novices. If youre new to snorkeling, I suggest practicing in a pool or the nearshore shallows before you venture into deeper waters for your lobster hunt.And dont forget you need a lobster endorsement on your saltwater fishing license.The weeks bestCapt. Ariel Medero of Big Game Sportfishing at the Hammocks in Marathon reports the offshore action was quite good over the weekend, and his anglers caught nice blackfins and a few dolphin. The SeaSquared boats took clients to the reef for some excellent snapper fishing, with good catches of mangroves, yellowtails and muttons. Larry and Jennifer, from Georgia, caught 17 lobsters on their snorkeling trip to Florida Bay. The Bednarski family, from New Jersey, landed and released 10 large lemon sharks. And the Nelson family, from Jacksonville, had so much fun catching 48 snappers on their reef trip that they booked a lobster trip and brought in a bakers dozen. Capt.

Im not going to tell you how to dress your burger. Im not going to tell you what sort of bun to put your burger on. Im not really even going to tell you very much about how to cook your burger. But I am going to tell you how to make the best burger. Ever. And you start by avoiding the ground beef at the grocer at all costs. So lets start there. Ground beef tends to be overworked during processing. And overworked beef is tough beef. Instead, you want to grab yourself sirloin steak tips, which are tender, meaty and full of flavor. But youre not going to grind them. Youre going to chop them in the food processor. Not only does this prevent the beef from being overworked, it also gives the finished burgers a big beefy, tender steak-like texture. The trick to chopping the beef is to cut it into 1-inch chunks, then freeze it for about 15 minutes until it is just firm. These partially frozen chunks chop perfectly in the processor without becoming overworked. For seasoning, you want a blend of finely ground Parmesan cheese and Asian fish sauce. Dont worry; the finished burgers will taste neither cheesy nor fishy. Both ingredients disappear into the steaky goodness of the beef without leaving behind noticeable flavors of their own. Yet they still impart tremendously savory flavors that produce an incredibly rich burger.Once your burgers are formed, how to cook them is your call. I like to grill them briefly over high heat, then finish them over cooler flames until just medium-rare.What you need for supersavory chop-your-own burgers:Four ounces Parmesan cheese.One and a third pounds sirloin steak tips.One tablespoon fish sauce.Two teaspoons soy sauce.In a food processor, pulse the Parmesan until very finely ground; it should resemble breadcrumbs. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside. Cut the steak tips into 1inch chunks, then arrange them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the pieces of beef are firm, but not frozen solid.Once the beef is firm, place half of the pieces in the processor (there is no need to wash it out after the Parmesan), then pulse until well chopped, but not ground. This should take about 1 minute of on-off pulsing. Transfer the chopped beef to the bowl with the cheese, then repeat the procedure with the remaining beef.Drizzle the fish sauce and soy sauce over the chopped beef, then use your hands to mix everything together. Make sure the cheese is evenly distributed, but try not to knead or overwork the meat.Divide the meat into four portions, then form each into a burger patty. As you form the patties, use your thumb to press an indentation into the center of each burger. This prevents the burgers from bulging in the center during cooking. The burgers can be grilled immediately or refrigerated for up to two days. Grill the burgers over high heat for one to two minutes per side or until well seared, then either move the burgers to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the flame and cook to desired doneness. Start to finish: 30 minutes (15 minutes active). Servings: Four.
