Acevedo's wife, Monique,
was charged -last week with
grand theft and fraud for alleged-
ly stealing more than $180,000
in adult cosmetology tuition and
other class fees when she served
as the School District's adult
education coordinator. She
turned herself in to authorities
Thursday and was released on
her own recognizance. Her
arraignment is set for May 26.
Monroe Cotmty State Attorney
Dennis Ward said his investiga-
tion is now moving to Monique
Acevedo's alleged misuse of her
district-issued credit card.
Finance records show thou-
sands of dollars of purchases of
personal items like DVDs, cloth-
ing and furniture that were
recorded as "textbooks" and
"supplies" for her adult education
programs. *
Randy Acevedo has not been
accused of financial malfea-

Aceyedo can't effectively lead
the district in light of the finance

turned herself in on the arrest

ed the resolution. He had also
heard that Key West High School

cial integrity. .
"I have a concern that even

Pribramsky told the board. "But

ed me and asked me to delay this

ings" are released, which is

it was tabling the resolution

said. "Let's remove the cloud
around the superintendent and let
him do his job."

Halpern, said Acevedo shouldn't
be indicted for the "crimes of a
wife" and that Keys students
could learn the dangers of "mob
mentality" from the board's
amons.
Former Superintendent A.J.
"B'ookie" Henriquez also
defended Acevedo, who he said
has the support of many adminis~
traitors and teachers in the dis-
trict.
"All of the information points
to a single employee in the
school system," Henriquez said.
"Stop the harassment."
Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said he did not want the
board "divided" and generating
"sensational headlines" m local
newspapers.

member Duncan Mathewson

Hearing set

skinney@keynoter.com

It looks like it may be back to
Tallahassee on May 21 for all
involved in the contested election
between 1Vionroe County Circuit
Court Judge Tegan Slaton and
Mary Vanden Brook.
At that point, Leon County
Circuit Court Judge Kevin Davey
could opt to opell 63 rejected
absentee ballots that could, in
turn, change the outcome of the
election..
In a conference call Tuesday
morning, Davey ordered attor-
neys for Vanden Brook, Slaton
and Monroe Couilty to head'to
the state capitol for what could be
a final hearing. A backup date is
set for June 9.
Following November's elec-
tion, Vanden Brook, a former
court administrator, sued, con-
testing the results.
Slaton beat her out for the
Circuit Court judgeship by four
votes following a machine
recount, a manual recount and
ballot review by the county
Elections Canvassing Board.
Earlier this year, Davey
ordered both sides to collect the
depositions of 69 absentee voters
whose ballots \vere rejected in
November because the signatures
on their ballots did not match

The Turtle Hospital in

t1e that was found floating and
unable to dive about a mile south
of Bud 'n Mary's Marina. The

"Water levels in the primary
regional storage systems the
water conservation areas and Lake
Okeechobee continue to drop.
A majority of water levels in wells
monitored by the district also
declined," said a district report:
"The one thing that we do
have sothe control over is water
use," Collins said. "If people
want to be able to take showers
and wash their laundry, we have
to get other people to cut back on
watering their lawns."
Water district staff driving
through the Keys on Friday
reported to Collins that they
passed "four big resorts going
full-on with irrigation. This was
on a Friday when all watering
is illegal."
"Nobody is interested in mak-
ing money through fines. We're
after compliance with the rules,"
Ritz said.
Gastesi said, "Last year the
problem was Lake Oketchobee's
level was so low. Now it's the
aquifer. Tropical Storm Fay came
through and gave us all a sense of
false security. We thoixght we
were off the hook for water prob-
fems, but we're not."
The FKAA pumps about 17
millions of gallons per day in the


dry season. The water utility like-
ly will begm blending treated
brackish water with the high-
quality water from the Biscayne
Aquifer, and lower pumping pres-
sure to reduce water lost to
pipeline leaks. The FKAA's
reverse-osmosis plant will be acti-
vated, Ritz said, ''but that's very
expensive water to produce."
A.1arge reverse-osmosis.plant
at the Florida City well field is
nearing collipletion but will not


be operational until later, this
year, Ritz said.
Local code enforcement offi-
cers will be asked to keep an eye
out for water-use violations.

allowed to water lawns and land-

Dollar tax
added to pack
Of cigarettes
Miami Herald

Florida lawmakers began
their 2009 session with bold
ambitions to examine
Florida's tax code, repair tax
inequities and find new rev-
enue. They ended up with a
single new tax and a smidgen
ofreformn
They approved a tax
ii1crease that offered the path
of least resistance a $1 per
pack increase on cigarettes -
plus one tax reform and two
constitutional amendments
that will offer some people tax
relief but further complicate
the tax system.
"Everything I said we
would put on the table to play
out, we did," said Sen. Jeff
Atwater, R-North Palm Beach,
who told his chamber at the
start of the session that they
would review "every line item
of every budget" and "our tax
structure."
The tobacco tax, which
includes a $1 per ounce tax on
smokeless tobacco, will raise
an estimated $900 million
next year if signed into law by
the governor. It was opposed
by the tobacco lobby, but not
aggressively, and was pushed
heavily by hospitals and
Florida's lung, cancer and


heart associations. It regis-
tered 60 to 70 percent
approval ratings in recent pub-
licThpP nr 1 enate consi
ered more than the cigarette
tax.*
After weeks of hearings, it.
proposed closing corporate tax
loopholes, imposing sales
taxes on Internet sales, closing
tax loopholes for.out-of-state
travel companies, eliminating
inequities in sales-tax exemp-
tions and even raising .new
taxes on bottled water.
All of those ideas except
one were rejected.
The House proposal- was
more modest: Imposing the
sales tax on a handful of cur-
rently untaxed items, includ-
ing newspaper and magazine
subscriptions and large charter
boats, in exchange for a plan
to suspend the state sales tax
for three days to allow people
to buy hurricane supplies and
back-to-school items.
The one reform that sur-
vived: A narrowly written plan
to stop corporations from cre-
ating shell companies to avoid
paying documentary stamp
taxes on real-estate transac-
tions. The move will raise an
estimated $43 million next
year.
To get the cigarette tax into
the budget, the House had to
bypass its own Finance and
Tax chairwoman, Rep. Ellyn

Senate agenda, he said,
because "there is only so much
you could ask of your mem-
bers."
In the final week, legisla-
tors approved one bill that
could open the door to local
tax increases: a measure to
allow all counties to ask vot-
ers whether to impose a sales
surtax of up to one percent for
fire-rescue services. .
And, amid a last-day prish
by Gov. Charlie Crist and
Florida Realtors, lawmakers
agreed to pass two bills that
put constitutional amendments
on the ballot in November
2010 to carve new loopholes
in the state's property-tax
code.
One would give first-time
home buyers those who
have not owned a home in
Florida for eight years -- a tax
break equal to 25 percent of a
property's market value up to
$100,000. The other would
place a 5 percent capon the
annual increase in commercial
and non-residential property-
tax.assessments.

The average monthly sewer
bill is now down 25 percelit; the
average May residential bill is
$35.46. Residents will now pay
a sewer bill based on the water
they use, which encourages
water conservation. Commercial
businesses and reclaimed water
users, who have been receiving a
bill based on water use, will con-
tinue .to be billed in the same
manner, but with the new rates,
they can expect to pay a larger
share of the costs to treat the
water.

Utilities, a private sewer utility
serving a small portion of the
Lower Keys, has begun sending
out its first monthly sewer bills
with new rates to .around 1,500
residents- and businesses on
Stock Island. .
In January, the Florida Public
Service Commission ordered
rates lowered following the
release of a report from the state
Office of Public Counsel.
It noted numerous question-
able expenditures in the utility's

EDITOR: ,
Florida Keys commercial fishermen are very
concerned with the decline in spiny lobster land-
ings. Just look at the last few years.,
The decrease in production has already result-
ed in great economic and social hardships to one
of the most valuable commercial fisheries in the
State of Florida.
We believe that Florida spiny lobster stock
assessment research needs to consider a wider
view qf the problem not just trap reduction.'
Research should include the general dynamics
of Caribbean ocean circulation to understand the
recruitment dynamics of the stock we presently
fish in the Florida Keys most importantly,
research needs to consider the impact of the
severe depletion of spawning stocks throughout
Central and South America, and changes in habi-
tat and water quality.
All these elements will greatly improve our


understanding on the dynamics of spiny lobster
production in Florida and, perhaps, help us make
informed decisions regarding our fisheries and
future.
The Spiny Lobster Import Assessment was
passed this year prohibiting imports smaller than
the existing U.S. minimum size limits (3-inch
carapace, 5.5-inch tail). This is a great start.
Pending regulations on annual catch limits,
tailing permits and trap damage to coral are all
being looked at.
I hope before any further spiny lobster regula-
tions are passed, our industry works cooperative-
ly with the National Marine Fisheries Service, the
federal fisheries councils, the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary, and the non-govern-
ment-office community to do it right.

.
for his deflonce
On Tuesday, School District Superintendent Randy Acevedo
told the School Board he has no intention of stepping down
while multiple investigations continue mto district finances
That's his legal right.
His attorney later drove home the point, saying a founding
principle ofAtherican democracy holds that anyone.accused of
a crime is considered mnocent until proven guilty.
OK, we accept that
However, who's at that table to speak out on behalf of the stu-
dents and teachers and the taxpayers who are all.going to pay
the price for misspent funds and lack of fiscal management?
At Tuesday's emotional School Board meeting in Key West,
Gerald Adams Elementary School Principal Frannie Herrin
spoke out about the uncertainty, where "every annual teacher is
on notice and they're worried."
That's because the district faces the unfortunate prospects of
cutting millions from the 2009-10 budget.
. Instead of focusing on streamlining costs or reducing dupli-
cate purchases for pet programs, and holding administrators
accountable, the board.and the superintendent are locked in a
tug of war that benefits no one.
Criminal chargesbrought by the state attorney against the
superintendent's wife accuse her. of allegedly stealing more
than $180,000 collected from cosmetology classes she super-
vised. Add tens of thousands more in district credit card pur-
chases for personal items.
Then, explain to the. Sigsbee Elementary School mother -
fighting back tears Tuesday who talked about her school lit-
erally running out of paper and a teacher vacancy going
tinfilled. *
That's what makes people angry when they hear about lax
oversight over program funds, abuse of district credit cards, or
dozens of school administrators and district employees all tray-
eling at taxpayer-expense to an Orlando conference.
The legitimate questions are: Who's in charge-and who's tak-
ing responsibility for this mess?
When School Board member Steve Pribramsky withdrew his
motion asking the superintendent to step down, an outburst of
applause erupted from the superintendent's supporters, who
filled the back of the room Tuesday.
But they don't speak for those not there, who rightly want to
see money properly spent and accounted for where it does the
most good in the classroom.
And that's where we ultimately stand. The superintendent :.
for the good of the schools should voluntarily take a leave of
absence and await the outcome of the numerous investigations.
No-one says he's guilty. But we want to believe in his heart
he knows what's best for the schools. Randy, only you can
make the right decision.

Monroe County, and Em sure it is even more
of an embarrassment to the decent and hard-
working employees of the district who have
been playing by the rules, arid have done noth-
ing wrong.
If it is ever proven that some employees are
guilty of abusing their positions for financial
gain, or any other reason, then part of their
punishment should be that they must apologize
in front of the entire student body, and their
parents, for having betrayed their trust in them.
These students and their parents have
entrusted the School District to help nurture
and mold the minds of this next generation of
adults, and to have something like this happen
taints the good work that so many in the edu-
cation field have accomplished. I believe an
apology would help bnng some closure to all
those affected by this.
My only hope is that none of our students
elsewhere uses our present School District as
an example of "whatever it takes" to be-a suc-
cess.

The other day I drove past Marathon High

In light of the recent goings-on in the district, I
would suggest that they amend the sign to read
"Student success whatever it takes as
long as it is legal and above board."
I realize that at the present time no one has
been convicted of any wrongdoing, and a per-

Still no cases
Of SWine fU

By KEVIN WADLOW
senior staff writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

No swine flu cases have yet
been reported in the Florida
Keys but many local resi-
dents v ere taking no chances.
IMIid sanitizers, surgical
masks and antiseptic wipes
were sold out or severely
depleted at several retail phar-
maciesr from Key largo to Key
West, spot checks showed
Monday and Tuesday.
A CVS employee told a cusi-
tomer Tuesday, "We. sold the
last one [hand sanitized] earlier
today. We'll get in more
Wednesday."
Shelf space for pocket-size
sanitized and wipes was barren.
On Tuesday afternoon, both
the Winn Dixie supermarket
and CVS pharmacy .off North
Roosevelt Boulevard in Key
West were out of the sanitizers
and masks.
Store managers of
Walgreens and CVS said they
couldn't comment and referred
reporters to officials at national
corporate headquarters. Calls
and <6 mails were not been
answered. .
Swine flu now being
called the H1N1 virus has
reached as far south as Miami-
Dade County.
Hallandale High School in
Brolvard County was closed
until today after a student there
wa confair ed t ahave time

considered a "probable" flu suf-
ferer caused the Doral Academy

Land Trust's Truman lease is tabled again

Over findings

Key West City Contmission
approval of the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust's pro-
posed lease of six acres at the
Truman Waterfront Avas pulled
from the Tuesday City
commission n agenda the sec-
ond time in as many.months.
The Land Trust requested the
delay insight of revelations City
Attorney Shawn Smith made
public last week that the Land
Trust billed the city twice for ren-
ovations it made to two properties
in Bahama Village.
"We feel that the well has been
poisoned by the accusations ...

before the lease comes back
before the commission," Land
Trust board member Bob Kelly
told the Keynoter,
The Land Trust buys houses in
the Bahama Village neighbor-
hood, fixes them up and deed
restricts the homes as affordable
housing, which in turn is rented
out. Much of the group's funding
comes from the city Tax
IncrementFundaspecialproper-
ty tax dedicated to rehab projects
in District VI.
The first $102,306 payment in
question went to the Land Trust in
2001 and was reportedly used to
fix up properties on Truman
Avenue and Virginia Street. Then
.in early June 2008, the Land Trust
- claimed it was owed that amount
again for the same project..
So on Tune 17, the City
Commission approved spending
$455,274 in TIF money -

$102,306 of which was for the
reimbursement already given in
2001. -
- City Attorney Shaven Smith
discovered the discrepancy last
week and alerted commissioners.
He says he's continuing to probe
whether there is anything crimi-
nal to the so-called double dip-
ping and, if he. determines there
is, would refer the matter to the
State Attorney's Office. -
In an e-mail to the Keynoter,
KellyreferredtoSmith'stillega-
tions as. "specious" and "scur-
rilous."
Land Trust Executive Director
Norma Jean Sawyer maintains
the error was either on the part of
the Land Trust's accountants or
.city staff but says the second pay-
nient will be paid back -
although the group has no money
to do so right now.
Kelly said, "We don't have it in
our checking account at the
moment," but he said the Land


Trust has a plan to raise the money
by selling a piece of property.
The city's investigation has
prompted the Land Trust board to

At the Truman

call a public meeting where the
board and President Cecil Bain
will respond to the city's allega-
tions that the Land Trust know-
ingly double-dipped.


That public meeting will be
held at 2 p.m. Thursday at the
Land Trust's headquarters at 307
Julia St. in Bahama Village.
On a related note, the Florida
Housing Fmance Corp. last
month "de-obligated" $1.14 mil-
lion in funding that was slated to
go to the Land Trust for, in part,
first-time homebuyers' assistance.
liowever, in light of a lack of
qualified buyers, as well as what
the Housing Finance Corp.
deemed "a conflict of interest
under federal law" stemming from
Sawyer transferring title of a prop-
erty that could quality for some of
the money to. her sohq Adrian
Poitier, that offer was rescmded.
At the Truman Waterfront, the
Land Trust wants to develop 86
one- and two-bedroom apart-
ments, retail space, a library,
bocce ball courts and a Bahamian
cultural museum. The lease with
the city would be for 99 years at a
dollar per year.

IIome BancShares Inc., the
Arkansas-based parent company
of Centennial Bank Florida,
has announced first quarter net
income of $6.2 millioil, or 28

nion share for the quarter that
ended on March 31.
For the same period in 2008,

cents (stock dividend adjusted)
diluted earnings per common
share.
In a release sent to the media,
Brian Davis, head of financial
reporting for Home BancShares
Inc., pointed out that in March of
2008, the company sold its 20
percent interest in White River
Bancshares Inc. for a $6.1 mil-
lion gain. "Excluding the $3.8
million- after-tax or 19 cents
diluted earnings per common
share impactisfWhite River dur-
ing the first quarter of 2008, net
income and diluted earnings per
common share for the first quar-
ter of 2009 increased 78 percent
and 64.7 percent, respectively,
when compared to the same peri-
od in 2008," he wrote.
Cash diluted earnings per
share were 30 cents and 37 cents

on the common shares until the

has other Centennial Bank
branches in central, north central,
and southern Arkansas. The com-
pany's common stock is traded

Select Market under the symbol
"HOMB."


ond quarter of 2009 cash divi-
dend declaration of 6 cents per
common share is the maximum
cash dividend allowed pursuant
to Home BancShares' agreement
with the U.S. Department of the
Treasury,
When Home BancShares
issued $50 million of fixed-rate
cumulative perpetual preferred
stock to the Treasury in January
as part of the Troubled Asset
Relief Program, the company
agreed to limit future cash divi-
dends to not more than the last
quarterly cash dividend declared
prior to Oct. 14, 2008.
The consent of the Treasury
will be required for any increases


first quarter of 2009 and 2008,
respectively,
"We are very pleased with our
first quarter of 2009 perform-
ance," said John Anson, chair-
man and chief executive officer
of Home BancShares. "Many
initiatives begun several months
ago-are causing our metric to
improve nicely.As a result of our
healthy reserves and capital ley-
els, we continue to be a strong
financial institution positioned
to take advantage of opportuni-
ties in these stormy economic
conditions."
Allison is a part-time resident
of the Florida Keys and serves
on the local board of directors of
Centennial Bank Florida, for-
merly Marine Bank.
In January, Home
BancShares reported the first
single-quarter loss in its history
- a loss of $9.4 million in the
fourth quarter of 2008. At the
time, a spokesman for the bank
pointed to bad loans in the
Florida Keys as contributing
most to this loss.
The news of the loss sent the
bank's stock price tumblitig. It
bottomed out in March at just
over $14 a share. It has since
rebounded, along with bank
stocks nationally, and closed last
Friday at $22.05 a share.

Tower of power?


A ramshackle cylinder of
weathered wood may be a rare
surviving link to Key Largo's
days of railroads and lime groves.
"This was a major water tower
connected to a very large cis-
tern," said Key Largo resident
Tom DeLong. "It seems to be the
only remaining water tower from
that area that anyone knows
about."
The Reef Environmental
Education Foundation, best
known by its REEF acronym,
works from its headquarters in
one of Key Largo's most historic
houses, built in 1913.
The property in the highway
median at mile marker 98.3 holds
remnants of a cistern and water
tower that may be the best-pre-
served example of a Flagler-era
water system still existing in the
Keys.
"We still have not absolutely
confirmed that this was a stop for
Flagler's, railroad," the Florida
East Coast Railway, DeLong
said, "but it would have held
much more water than a small
house like that ever could have
used."
