The so-called prescribed burn on Thursday was designed to reduce underbrush to stem the threat of large wildfires; and to replenish the unique pine rocklands habitat needed by Key deer and other native wildlife. Weather forecasts for Thursday indicated conditions favorable for a prescribed burn, refuge Manager Anne Morkill said. Around 11 a.m., there was a pretty significant drop in humidity that was not forecast, she said. It was a weather anomaly that caused pretty dry conditions in areas that were already dry. The fire designed to be on 21 acres but spreading to at least 100 forced dozens of residents to evacuate their homes for several hours. The fire was raging, said Big Pine resident Paula Cannon. It came rocketing down the road. You could hear the high trees exploding from the heat. Don Pollock, a PineSome 100 acres on Big Pine Key engulfed in flames Keys drink, smoke moreFlorida Keys residents enjoy their vices, a new state study says. Monroe County residents drink more and smoke more than the average Floridian, findings from state Department of Health surveys suggest.About a fourth of Keys residents who took part in 2010 surveys said they had at least one binge-drinking episode within a year, or drink alcohol on a daily basis.That 25.1 overall percentage of binge or heavy drinking is 10 points higher than the Florida average of 15 percent. And in Monroe County, that was an increase in alcohol use from the same survey done in 2007, which was 22 percent. The state Department of Health on Sept. 9 released county-by-county survey results in its 2010 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. The Health Department surveyed 506 Keys residents by phone (the countys 2010 population was 73,009 but the Health Department went with the 2000 census number of 78,003).This is a good start to understanding how we might be more effective at promoting and protecting public health in Monroe County, said Monroe County Health Department administrator Bob Eadie.In the survey, 25.6 percent of men and 24.6 percent of women said they binge drank (five drinks for men, four for women in one sitting) in the year, or drank daily (one drink for women and two for men).In the 2007 Monroe CountyState study confirms risky behaviorOUR COMMUNITYS HEALTHCandidates firm up stancesWith less than a month left for campaigning, candidates for the two available Key West City Commission, District 4 commissioner and mayor, are pitching their platforms to garner voters support. The general election is set for Oct. 4, with a runoff, if needed, set for Nov. 8. The mayor is elected to a twoyear term, commissioners for four years. Commissioners earn $8,500 each year and the mayor gets $10,000, although those salaries will incrementally increase over the next four years, moving up to $20,000 and $22,500 respectively. Commissioners Mark Rossi and Teri Johnston, representing Districts 2 and 5 respectively, were automatically re-elected unopposed when candidate qualifying ended on Aug. 19.Mayoral raceTwo people look to oust incumbent Mayor Craig Cates, elected to his first public post in 2009: Political newcomer Margaret Romero and Carie Noda, who has previously run for the top spot. Cates has focused his campaign on three issues: Converting Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street into a new city hall; new policies and programs to deal with Key Wests homeless; and undertaking city-led park development on the 33-acre Truman Waterfront.

District 6 community meetings are held the second Thursday of each month and are designed for residents and business owners to explore issues affecting the community. Truman board punts on Family Pride leaseKey Wests Truman Waterfront Advisory Board on Friday declined to approve a lease for an assisted-living facility at the waterfront, and suggested the City Commission do the same when it meets on Monday.At stake is a long-term lease for more than four acres of land assigned to the Tennessee-based Family Pride Corp.Friday, city Senior Project Manager Doug Bradshaw made clear from the get-go that the draft lease is incomplete and that some of the bigger terms are still being negotiated. He speculated the City Commission on Monday would likely send the draft back to city staff for more work.Family Pride, working locally with the nonprofit Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition, wants to develop 60 assisted-living units, ranging from low-income to market rate. Whats still up in the air is how much Family Pride will pay the city for use of the publicly owned property; the draft lease contemplates a little more than $37,000 per year after 10 years of operation. Lets not be naive about it, Mayor Craig Cates said. Family Pride wants to be there because they can get top dollar for the waterfront assisted-living rooms. Lets not move too fast and give away the farm.He said he wants more public input and discussion on Monday night, in lock step with the advisory boards recommendation, when the commission meets as the Local Redevelopment Agency. That session starts at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.Truman board member Bob Kelly took exception to the fact that no one from the city managers or city attorneys office, who are negotiating the lease on behalf of the city, attended Fridays hastily called meeting. In my view, he said, that leaves us in a null position. I dont think we ought to proceed; I dont think we can proceed. Board member Robert Domanski agreed: Other city staff couldnt juggle their calendars as many of us have done to make it to this meeting, which was scheduled Wednesday. No one from Family Pride was on hand, either, attending were members of the Assisted Care Coalition. They launched the idea about seven years ago and hold a primary lease over the Truman Waterfront property, which the city is now considering sub-leasing to Family Pride. Coalition Chairman Bookie Henriquez says the 60 proposed units would comprise 10 workforce for $825 each month; 10 lowincome semi-private units at $1,100 per resident; and eight moderateincome units at $1,700 per resident. The rest, 42, would be market rate at $3,800 per resident. Board member Ed Gartenmayer suggested moving the entire proposal to Stock Island: Thats going to be real close to the hospital and that property is not so valuable. Youre going to be able to build a lot more units, the rates are going to be able to stay down real low ... and youre right next to the hospital.Bradshaw says details need lots more workBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCuba rig nearly in placeAgiant semi-submersible oil rig en route from Singapore will probably be drilling in the Florida Straits between Key West and Cuba in mid-December.The rig could arrive earlier, but Repsol, the Spanish oil company, wants to wait until after hurricane season ends on Nov. 30 before it begins drilling.This latest report on the progress of the Italian-made Scarabeo 9 oil rig comes from Lee Hunt, chief executive of the International Association of Drilling Contractors, who returned from a trip to Cuba last week as part of a joint delegation with the environmental group the Environmental Defense Fund. Hunt also said Repsol plans to have one well drilled by the end of the year.Along with Hunt, the fact-finding delegation included William Reilly, a former Environmental Protection Agency administrator and co-chairman of the White House task force investigating the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; Richard Sears, former vice president of deepwater drilling for Royal Dutch Shell; and Dan Whittle, a senior attorney for the Environmental Defense Fund. Their goal was to learn how committed the Cuban government is to operating offshore oil and natural-gas rigs safely and responsibly, and to find out the best way for American companies with oil-spill expertise to work with Cuba, despite a 50-year economic embargo by the United States.Were shooting ourselves in the foot by not working together, Whittle said. There was a lot of speculation in the past about if Cuba will in fact begin drilling. Well, now we know Cuba is moving forward as quickly as it can.Because of the embargo, Repsol would have to rely on companies from the United Kingdom, Norway and Brazil for help if the Scarabeo 9 causes a spill, Whittle said.Whittle and the rest of the group met with senior officials in Cubas Ministry of Basic Industry, which regulates the countrys energy, geology and mining and basic chemistry sectors. They also met with officials from the Ministry of Environment, as well as senior members of CUPET, Cubas state-run petroleum company.Whittle and Hunt said they were encouraged by what they heard from their hosts during the trip. Whittle said he was especially pleased to see how interested these officials were to hear Reilly talk about his task forces recently released report on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Theyre taking the lessons of the BPspill very seriously. They were dog eared whenever the report came up, Whittle said. Spain plans drilling in the StraitsBy DAIVD GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comOIL DRILLINGMosquito board makes more cutsMeeting Tuesday night in Key West, the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board agreed to cut another $190,000 from the budget for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, bringing total reductions up to $624,912. The new cuts come from an adjustment in expected worker compensation payouts; the earlier cuts comprise several measures including gasoline, capital improvements and aircraft maintenance. Not included in the spending plan for the coming budget year is a potential $150,000 to $250,000 in additional savings that will be realized when up to four employees retire in 2012.In the 2011-12 fiscal year, the agency has planned expenses totaling $12,384,687, supported by revenues projected at $9.7 million, with $9 million of that coming from property taxes.In addition to giving tentative approval to the budget, the five-member panel gave the first OK to a proposed tax rate of $4.836 per $1,000 of assessed property value. For the owner of a home valued at $300,000, that would equate to a $1,450 bill. Michael Doyle, the Mosquito Control District executive director, laid out a three-year plan designed to correct a perennial problem that has seen, on average, budgeted expenses exceeding actual expenses by about 25 percent. He laid out the big picture, for board members: One is to bring the projected expenses in line with our actual expenses within a reasonable few percent. Secondly, to reduce the spending to match our income, and then third, to stabilize the reserves. Doyle said he hopes to gradually accomplish that by the 2015 budgeting cycle.My basic goal, he said, is to give each dollar a name, so to speak, and eliminate amorphous amounts of money without a specific purpose ... so we can protect the citizens when we need to but not float these unnamed dollars above our actual expenses from year to year.I applaud you for what youre doing, Commissioner Phil Goodman told Doyle, adding: We cant let it get back the other way. The taxpayers could do more with [more money] in their pockets.Public input was limited to just one speaker, Virginia Panico, executive vice president of the Key West Chamber of Commerce. She lauded the spending cuts and recommended in the future starting with a zero budget and adding line items based on need, rather than doing what most government agencies do: Starting with a proposed budget figure and then cutting down.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL BOARDWoman out $3,000 in apparent scamAKey West woman may be out $3,000 for trying to help a mysterious scooter buyer. Melissa Ann Rebora told Key West police on Monday that a woman who called herself Michell Declan in emails and a phone conversation agreed to buy her Tao Tao 50 scooter, advertised on craigslist for $3,000 in late August.Declan sent Rebora a check for that amount, which Rebora deposited in her bank. Declan called Rebora several days later, saying a family member had fallen ill so she asked for her money back.Since the scooter had not been picked up, Rebora wrote a check to Declan and mailed it to her. By the time Rebora discovered that Declans check had bounced, her own check had been cashed. Attempts to contact Declan through e-mail were not successful, Rebora told police.Rebora is concerned Declan has stolen her money, notes a police report.In a second incident of an apparent financial con game reported Monday, managers of a Key West pawnshop told police that they cashed a postal money order for $825 on Sept. 1. The shop, Florida Keys Jewelry and Pawn on North Roosevelt Boulevard, normally limits check cashing to $200 but waived the rule since postal money orders are rarely counterfeit. However, this money order turned out to be bogus. Before that was discovered, the same woman attempted to cash a second money order but was refused because of the amount. Key West police are searching for the woman, who gave a Key West address but presented a Michigan ID.CRIME FRONT10-bay gas station gets final approvalThe representative for Marathon Petroleum LLC says the company will waste no time breaking ground on a gas station and Dunkin Donuts at the old Miami Subs property between 73rd and 74th streets on U.S. 1 in Marathon. We should start building within two weeks. Were waiting to close within 10 days of today, Mikel Isaac said Friday. The company already has on the property fill it will use during construction. Isaac said he expects to be done and open in 180 days. Thats the way we build, he said.The City Council gave final approval to the project Tuesday, despite Councilman Mike Cinques objection to the state Department of Transportation limiting U.S. 1 access on the final site plan.Original plans showed three points of access, but the final renderings have just one. Theres also no access from 74th Street.I think losing two points of ingress and egress on U.S. 1 is going to set a bad precedent. DOTis very oriented on restricting the ingress and egress on U.S. 1. I dont believe itll fit the neighborhood well with the ingress and egress on it, Cinque said.I personally believe the applicant has made as many concessions as he can, Mayor Ginger Snead said. The site plan originally included six fuel bays totaling 12 pumps and a drivethrough convenience store. There will now be five fuel bays. The 2,100-square-foot Miami Subs building is slated for demolition.Final budget OKdAs expected, the City Council unanimously approved a fiscal year 201112 budget. The 1.9999 tax rate is 3.41 percent under the rollback rate necessary to generate the same amount of property taxes as the current fiscal year. At the 1.9999 rate, the owner of a $300,000 home in Marathon would pay $599 in property taxes in the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. The 2011-12 operating budget will be $8.8 million.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Heights resident, estimated flames came within 150 yards of his home on Orlando Road.When I left to go to work at about 1 p.m., I saw a lot of fire trucks and ambulances heading down Key Deer [Boulevard]. There were more ambulances racing to the area than I would have figured for a controlled burn, Pollock said. Thats what concerned me the most.When his wife Denise got home from her job around 3:15 p.m., firefighters told her to evacuate. Pollock said they were allowed back home at about 8 p.m. By Friday, the fire appeared to be contained with no private-property damage, Morkill said.About 10 Monroe County fire units from Layton to Stock Island responded, along with federal firefighters on scene to control the fire. Florida Division of Forestry units worked to control the blaze, and Everglades National Park dispatched a helicopter to dump water scooped from along the shoreline. It was a very serious fire, said county Fire Chief Jim Callahan. Those 45 homes [in Pine Heights] were endangered. There was brush all the way up to some the houses, so the potential was there.The Blue Hole wildlife observation area off Key Deer Boulevard apparently did not suffer significant damage but will remain closed this weekend. Woods around the Watson Nature Trail were severely scorched so the trail has been closed indefinitely, Morkill said. No evidence of animal deaths has been located, Morkill said. Weve still go crews out, mopping up and securing lines, Morkill said Friday. When everything is secured, well get a more accurate assessment of the acreage involved. Federal firefighters in charge of the controlled burn had a backup plan in place in case the fire spread, Callahan said. They knew where they were going to go to stop it, and thats what happened. Theyre professionals. He added, All in all, I think it went pretty well. No property was damaged and no one was hurt. The actions that were taken were appropriate and timely. homeless issue with my committee, Id really like implement some of the policies weve come up with. Those include a mobile outreach program to which the city has agreed to give $40,000, and revamped ordinances with stricter penalties for things like panhandling and camping in public. Romero, a civic watchdog who regularly speaks from the podium at public meetings, disagrees with Catesapproach to his three campaign goals. We see time-wasting delays on starting a new city hall, she said. What looks any different at the Truman Waterfront? I dont believe that the city should be involved in providing social services to homeless or vagrants. Romero said she would bring to the office a focus on pertinent facts and understanding the budget. Noda, in recent public appearances, has essentially boiled down her campaign to two issues: Safeguarding the environment so as to not jeopardize tourism as an economic engine, and appropriate preparation and handling of disasters, natural or otherwise. She operates a disaster consultation service and told the Keynoter her father died in the aftermath of Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. The people running the city for the past six years have said absolutely nothing about real fatalities. Of her father, He fell in the street and died of injuries sustained.District 4 raceIncumbent Commissioner Barry Gibson isnt seeking a second term representing his New Town district, instead opting to run for Monroe County supervisor of elections; that seat is up in 2012. One of the candidates seeking Gibsons open seat is Julio Avael, no stranger to local politics he served as Key West city manager for more than a decade. I care for this community and want nothing but the best for our beautiful island. He described the recent tone of local government as stagnant and indecisive. For example, he said, We acquired the Truman Waterfront, worth millions of dollars at no cost to the city residents, nearly 10 years ago. The land is still vacant. The 18 acres of park area ... that would benefit all of our residents has not even begun to be developed. Also seeking Gibsons soon-to-open seat is Cuba native Tony Fat Yaniz, who has branded his campaign with the slogan A Fresh Approach. His campaign statements have focused on safeguarding tourism while ensuring that locals that make up the workforce for that industry see the results of their labor. Tourism is our life blood, our goose that lays the golden egg. But lets also be mindful of the caretakers of that goose as we share in its bounty. That bounty must include a clean and safe city with space and facilities so that we can continue to raise our children in a community environment. The next candidate event, sponsored by the Hometown! Political Action Committee, is set for Wednesday beginning at 5 p.m. in the Conch Flyer restaurant at Key West International Airport on South Roosevelt Boulevard.

DISTRICT 4 45 homes were in pathFrom Fire,1Asurvey, the overall response on the alcohol-consumption question was 22 percent overall (25 percent for the men and 18.6 percent for women).The 2010 average state response was 19.8 percent for men and 10.5 percent for women.In Miami-Dade County, those alcohol-consumption numbers were 11 percent overall 16 percent for men and 5.7 percent of the women.Broward County reported an overall 16 percent on the drinking queries, but the mens responses jumped 8 points higher, up to 22 percent.One of the notable drops in Monroe County alcohol consumption was among younger people, ages 18 to 44.In the 2010 survey, 19.5 percent of those in the younger group admitted binge or daily drinking, down from the 26 percent reported in 2007. That suggests local Too Good for Drugs programs aimed at high-school sophomores in the Keys may be working, said Maureen Kempa, director of children and family services for the Guidance-Care Centers in Monroe County. Acoalition of local groups sponsors the educational programs, which includes alcohol-swab tests mailed to parents of 10thgraders in all three Keys public high schools.However, the percentage of middle-age (45-64) residents in Monroe County who described themselves as drinking significantly jumped to 32.4, up from 24 percent three years ago.People in Monroe County who admitted driving after an unsafe level of drinking was 4 percent double the state average.The percentage of Keys smokers 21.1 percent overall dropped from 2007 but still ranks above state averages for both men and women. Tobacco use is the No. 1 preventable cause of death in the world, and were 4 percentage points higher than the state average, said Christopher Tittel, wellness coordinator for the local Health Department. Not only do we have more smokers, but we have fewer smokers actively trying to quit, Tittel said. Information like this suggests maybe we could be working on our efforts to help people quit tobacco. Mens smoking in Monroe County (19.2 percent answering yes to tobacco use) declined from 2007, but the percentage of women increased 3 percent to a current 23.2 percent. On another front, Monroe County residents tended to come in below state averages for regular medical testing for cancer and other dangerous diseases.Keys show risky behaviorFrom Study,1ACity election 3 weeks away Subscriptions 743-5551

Four years later, something has changed. Somehow, the approved referendum turned into a lease agreement to the nonprofit Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition for four acres of Key West waterfront for 99 years at $1 a year. When that failed, it turned into the nonprofit claiming the right to assign the lease. Now, the same nonprofit is calling itself a consultant and the proposed 99-year, $1 lease agreement is up for approval on Monday. It would be turned over to the for-profit Tennesseebased Family Pride Corp. Compared to the language of the referendum, such a deal made me somewhat uneasy. It was as if the good faith of the voters was being used for someone elses gain (the nonprofit moving the deal forward has been led by Sandy Higgs, Ed Swift and Bookie Enriquez). The coalition has a deadline to get the lease approved by December. That deadline has already been extended in the past, so this is it, which no doubt explains how the lease contract arrived with little public notice to go for approval before the Naval Properties Local Redevelopment Authority at a special meeting Monday at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street. Somehow this was happening without approval of the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board, as if it were being pushed through. However, this was noticed and called into question. The proposed lease is 39 pages. It says only 16.67 percent of the units would be affordable housing. Most of the rest are common market. The developer can charge whatever it wants for the rest of the waterfront units. Or, as they should be properly described, condos. Another thing I noticed is that the developer doesnt have to go through the rate-of-growth ordinance; its exempted. If this deal is to be fair, then 16.67 percent affordable is not enough. For it to be fair to all of Key West, at least 50 percent of the housing must be affordable for Key West residents. Otherwise, seeing how this deal has changed so much and is not at all in the spirit of what Key West voters had in mind, let us bring it back to referendum. Mike Mongo Key WestThree help exonerate manOn the night of July 27, Peter McKinley, an inmate at Florida State Prison, was ushered to the wardens office to speak his last words over the phone to the dying woman who had raised him. This inmate, under the previous Department of Corrections regime, had been wrongfully accused and punished for crimes he did not commit while in prison. Each fraudulent charge carried a life sentence. The DOC and Inspector Generals Office launched an investigation that determined several horrific crimes had taken place. Unfortunately, they went and charged an innocent inmate with the commission of these felonies. This man was transported to a solitary cell on the isolation wing of Florida State Prison. After being confined in this manner for 30 months, his release was obtained. The state attorney from the 8th Judicial Circuit became convinced of the mans innocence and dropped all charges. There would have been no phone call and an innocent man would have died in prison if it were not for the valiant and fearless action of three people. As principled men of conscience, they never hesitated to stand with the underdog. Allison DeFoor, state Rep. Ron Saunders and Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward gave life after it had already been determined that it would be taken away. As a byproduct of their brilliant intervention, impressive prison reforms are being instituted that will save taxpayers money while ridding the system of many corrupt officials and policies. Inmates will finally be prepared with the appropriate skills that will allow them to successfully assimilate back into their communities.John Donnelly Key Largo Editors note: McKinley, a Key Largo resident who had been in prison on felony robbery charges, had been accused of sexually assaulting a guard. He was exonerated. The Shark-Free Marinas Initiative is reaching out to marinas in Florida to ask for their support in conserving the worlds shark populations. Organized as a cooperative by the Pegasus Foundation, the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and the Humane Society of the United States, the Initiative aims to reduce shark mortality worldwide by discouraging the landing of sharks and encouraging catchand-release of sharks in sport fishing, while rewarding forward-thinking marinas that participate in this program. Supporting organizations include Mote Marine Laboratory of Sarasota and Summerland Key, the Pew Environment Group, Fishpond USA and the Fisheries Conservation Foundation. Sharks are being killed at an unsustainable rate, according to a scientific study published by Imperial College, London, which estimated that the fins of between 26 million to 73 million sharks per year were being traded through the worlds fin markets as of the year 2000, mostly for shark-fin soup. In addition, the U.S. government estimates that recreational fishing killed an average of more than 200,000 sharks along the U.S. Gulf and Atlantic coast each year between 2004 and 2008. Many shark species have declined because of overfishing, which recreational fishing has contributed to in the U.S., notes Dr. Robert Hueter, senior scientist and director of Mote Marine Laboratorys Center for Shark Research. Sustaining these species is in the interest of recreational anglers as well as marine conservationists. Marinas in Florida can help reduce the number of sharks being killed by joining the Shark-Free Marina Initiative and preventing dead sharks from being brought back to their docks. There is no state more important to the success of this initiative in the United States than Florida, the sportfishing capital of the world, says Luke Tipple, managing director of the initiative. Because of the number of shark species off Florida and the sheer number of nursery grounds and migratory routes located there, protecting Floridas sharks is critical to maintaining the health of Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters. According to Dr. John Grandy, senior vice president of the Humane Society of the United States, Many tournaments offer anglers thousands of dollars for landing sharks, but anglers are beginning to realize that there are greater rewards for preserving shark fisheries. Only with more help from recreational anglers can we erase the misinformed notion that the only good shark is a dead shark. In 2009, close to 2,000 shortfin mako sharks were killed in recreational and commercial fisheries in the U.S., leading the National Marine Fisheries Service to declare that shortfin mako sharks are overfished. Despite asking fishermen to voluntarily release these sharks unharmed, tournaments targeting makos have continued. But forward-thinking anglers have already created new fishing tournaments that help conserve sharks and support marine research. For example, in 2011, the Guy Harvey Ultimate Shark Challenge, an annual catch-andrelease tournament in Southwest Florida awarded $10,000 in prizes for research-related tagging, while the Ocean City (Md.) Shark Tournament awarded $30,000 in prizes in its catchand-release division. There are two levels of commitment for an interested marina. It can either become a Shark-Free Marina that completely prohibits the landing of all sharks on its docks or a Shark-Friendly Marina, a facility that discourages the killing and landing of sharks and does not promote any activity that could harm sharks. The SFMI works in tandem with businesses and fishermen to increase the awareness of the need to protect our sharks and oceans, says Barbara Birdsey, founder of the Pegasus Foundation. This is a voluntary program that will prevent the needless killing of these ecologically and economically vital animals.Who speaks for those paying the bills now?So heres the thing about the big debate over Obamacare. Republican candidates running for president all vow to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act the minute they get in the White House. Their arguments differ slightly, but coalesce over the notion that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. Some add the notion that health care insurance should be left up to lawmakers in each state to decide. That smacks of the old states-rights arguments that have been used over and over to oppose such things as the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, even the Social Security Act. That old saw is dull from lack of sharpening and any new wood to cut. Last week, the federal Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., ruled against the state of Virginia, which sued over the issue of requiring Americans to purchase health insurance that socalled individual mandate. Virginia has a law that specifically forbids such a requirement. But the three-judge panel ruled that Virginia lacks the authority to challenge the federal law, which may give pause to other legislatures around the country moving to pass similar restrictions on implementing federal health care laws. Imagine, just for a moment, if federal courts had allowed Mississippi or Alabama to continue enforcing Jim Crow laws to restrict voting rights for minorities. Or picture the chaos if federal courts allowed any individual state to opt out of the Social Security system. Those Republicans who attack Obamacare ignore a cold, hard truth about the health-care delivery system in this country: Its the most expensive per capita in the world and yet the burden of paying for that falls unevenly on the backs of the insured. Whether self-employed or covered partially by an employer-subsidized health care plan, those with insurance are subsidizing those without insurance. Evidence introduced in the Fourth Circuit Court case indicates that 45 million Americans had no health insurance last year. When they get sick, they go to emergency rooms for care. Guess who pays for that health care? All of the insured through higher premiums, bigger deductibles and ever-escalating costs for delivery of services all to cover unreimbursed costs by those without insurance. In 2008, the year with the latest figures available, that extra burden cost everyone with insurance $43 billion to treat millions who had no health-care coverage. If thats the idea the Republicans propose for health care cloaked in the states-rights argument then thats a non-starter for lots of people who can spot a red herring when they see one. Wed like Republican challengers to argue on our behalf for once instead of trying to defend the morally indefensible ground of those who refuse to pay, expecting the rest of us to pick up the tab.Marinas can spread the word about shark protection Photo courtesy FLORIDA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORYShortfin mako sharks are among shark species that have been overfished,the National Marine Fisheries Service says.

The jobless rate last month in Florida also remained higher than the national average of 9.1 percent as the state continued to deal with a near dormant construction sector and a drop in government employment, the Agency for Workforce Innovation reported Friday. Monroe Countys unemployment rate was 6.7 percent for August, a tick up from a month earlier, the agency reported. The local jobless figure was 7.7 percent in August 2010. The island chain again had the lowest unemployment number in the state. Walton County was the next best off at 7 percent. Overall, however, the ranks of employed workers continue to grow. Over the year, 46,100 jobs were added, led by a rebounding hospitality industry that gained 46,400 jobs, a 5.1 percent rebound from the oil-tinged summer of 2010. Health services remained relatively strong in August, adding 22,000 jobs year-to-year. Floridas already anemic construction sector lost another 17,600 jobs in August compared to last year, a 5.1 percent drop. Government employment, though still relatively stable, lost 20,400 jobs. The only plus side from last month to this month is that the private sector started hiring again, said Sean Snaith, the director of the University of Central Floridas Institute for Economic Competitiveness. But government payroll cuts continue to weigh down overall job growth in the state. Fridays news was welcomed by the Florida Chamber of Commerce. While the unemployment rate remains unchanged at 10.7 percent, Florida continues to grow private sector jobs, said Edie Ousley, spokeswoman for the Florida Chamber. Florida added nearly 10,000 new jobs last month and is on pace to add over 100,000 by the end of the year.Keys better off on job front than rest of the stateBy MICHAEL PELTIERThe News Service of FloridaUNEMPLOYMENT IN BRIEFFirst State having bake sale for RelayFirst State Bank of the Florida KeysBig Pine office is having bake sales to benefit the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser.

AKey Largo School math teacher has been freed on $1,000 bond after turning himself in Thursday on a charge of simple battery on one of his students. Jose Zepeda, 38, is free on $1,000 bail. The 12-year-old student accused him of touching her thigh on several occasions. The alleged victim reported the incidents to her family in May, according to an arrest affidavit. Why an arrest came four months later wasnt immediately known. Zepeda has denied wrongdoing. Monroe County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara said Zepeda, a Miami resident, could face disciplinary action up to firing. In the meantime, he suspended Zepeda without pay. He had been reassigned on Sept. 9 to a different work location without contact with students pending investigation, according to a School District statement. Zepeda, according to Human Resources Director Cheryl Allen, was hired in September 2005 and earns $49,403 annually.Detective Jason Madnick of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, working with staff from the state Department of Children and Families, began an investigation on May 11, finding that the girl isnt fluent in English and was having trouble in Zepedas fifth-grade math class. Zepeda had allowed her to sit by his desk during class to get assistance, Madnick wrote in an arrest report. During this time ... Zepeda would put his hand on her thigh.On May 9, Madnick wrote, the touching progressed as Zepeda allegedly worked his hand upward on her thigh close to the vaginal area, prompting the girl to physically stop him.The following day, Madnick reports that Zepeda had turned toward her and looked down at his groin area, then looked at her and again looked down at his groin area; the student looked at his groin and advised she had noticed a bulge in his pants, all the while allegedly touching the victims thigh.This isnt the first incident of alleged abuse the girl, from Cuban, reported to investigators.According to Madnicks report, she recalled being a 3year-old at a day-care center in Cuba when an 80-year-old man allegedly groped her genitals.Another incident she reported allegedly involved an older man exposing himself to her. Her father found the person and beat him up and the person was arrested, Madnick wrote. Zepeda told deputies he touched the student numerous times, but denied the contact was inappropriate or sexual. Three of 16 students interviewed told police they saw Zepeda touch the students leg.

Crystal Bay Resort owner Marvin Rappaport closed the 26-unit property on the bayside of U.S. 1 near mile marker 50 on Monday in the hopes of turning it into a 100room Marriot Residence Inn. Rappaport offered few details Friday. He declined to discuss possible amenities, why the hotel closed now or any timetable for reconstruction. We signed a franchise agreement for a Marriot Residence Inn, is all he said. Rappaport purchased the property in December 2006. He said Crystal Bay is owned through his Miami-based Housing Trust Group and is the companys lone Keys property.City Planning Director George Garrett said hes met with Crystal Bay representatives at least once to discuss site plans, but that one has not been provided.Garrett said Crystal Bays largest problem will be acquiring available transientunit rights to build 100 rooms.The propertys development agreement allows for it to redevelop 27 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath condominiums, plus commercial space and 27 dock slips. There are a number of undeveloped transient units in the city, but I dont see anybody giving those up, Garrett said.Garrett said there are about 450 transient-unit rights available citywide. Many are spoken for, including 199 for a proposed Knights Key development, 105 at Spottswoods Faro Blanco project, 80 at the former Ramada Inn owned by Peebles Corp. and 46 at the Old Town site where city Finance Director Peter Rosasco proposed a Hampton Inn. Hes since sold the property.Garrett said Crystal Bay definitely wont be getting any transient units from the city.There are none. We cannot issue them and so if you dont have them or theyre not available for sale, youre out of luck, Garrett said.Owner wants to rebuild as MarriottBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe sign says its both open and closed,but the Crystal Bay Resort near mile marker 50 is in fact closed.Business pitched for beachThe idea of commercializing Marathons Sombrero Beach didnt sit well with some City Council members Tuesday evening. At the councils meeting, resident Josh Mothner pitched the idea of having rental umbrellas and chairs at the beach. He said he was doing so on behalf of businessman Asad Kahn. Mothner said it would encourage more tourists and locals to use the beach, and said it would be different than a food operation like a hot dog stand. One may believe vending on a beach isnt attractive. I disagree. I believe this will keep people in Marathon longer, he said. One hook: When the Switlik family deeded Sombrero Beach to Monroe County when the county owned the beach, it specifically banned commercial enterprises there. Mothner said he and attorney Frank Greenman contacted the Switlik family in New Jersey and answered questions about the idea. They were fine with the idea, Mothner said. Multiple attempts to contact the Switliks were unsuccessful as of press time Friday. The council unanimously agreed to let city staff investigate the possibility of a rental business at the beach. But not all like the idea. Councilman Pete Worthington, who lives close to the beach, said its not a good idea to draw more people there. He said he drives by it several times daily and that the parking lot is three-quarters full most of the year. To me, enhancing the beach is a good thing. Enticing more people to the beach I dont think is a good thing, he said. Mothner said he discussed the idea with each council member prior to Tuesday and that hes been working with Kahn on the proposal since February. It turned out to be a much harder thing to accomplish than I thought it would in a small town. I heard some statements that shocked me, he said of Worthingtons comments. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay raised concerns about the Switlik ban on commercial activities at the beach. As much as Id like to say lets get it done, I want to make sure we are legally capable of doing it and that its what the public wants, he said.But Switlik deed restriction is an issueBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONTeacher suspended, out on bondHes accused of touching young studentBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY LARGO Check likely not in the mailThe nonprofit group running Monroe Countys Middle Keys animal shelter isnt expecting a check even though an appeals court has freed up more than $250,000 in frozen assets claimed by the former shelter operator. Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys now runs the shelter and animalcontrol services from mile marker 16 to mile marker 70. The county gave the group the contract after Linda Gottwalds Stand Up for Animals group severed ties with the county in August 2010.Acounty audit of Gottwalds operation showed that, among other things, she used taxpayer money to buy herself a sport utility vehicle and spent money on personal entertainment and utility bills. She also reportedly used Monroe County-based money to pay for legal expenses, fencing and other items for a planned animal shelter in Traverse City, Mich.Katie Bentley, a former Gottwald employee, is now the shelter director for Safe Harbor. She said Gottwald has ill feelings toward her.Im not really holding my breath. If one of the other organizations got the contract, I think they would have seen some of the funds come to the shelter, Bentley said.In August 2010, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin froze Stand Ups two bank accounts at the request of the county. Gottwald appealed and, on Wednesday, the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami ruled the money be unfrozen.The courts ruling did not address, much less vindicate, [Stand Ups] position that it was not obligated to remit any of the fees it collected to the county or use any of the donations it received to benefit the animals at the Middle Keys animal shelter. That issue remains to be resolved in the pending court action, Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger said in a prepared statement. Shillinger said the countys lawsuit against Stand Up, which seeks a return of the money, would resume. The court would be called upon to determine the parties rights under the contract and the county code, he said. That basically means who is entitled to the $250,000, and how much.Gottwalds always claimed to be a private contractor doing the job for a set price, while the county feels differently.Stand Up was hired to exercise the countys animal-control police powers and collect fees on the countys behalf and donations for the benefit of the animals at the Middle Keys shelter, Shillingers statement says.Appeals court frees up money for Stand UpBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comANIMAL CONTROLBoard gives OK to budget, raisesThe Monroe County Commission gave narrow final approval to a fiscal year 2011-12 budget Thursday that will dole out 5 percent cost-of-living raises to almost 500 county employees.County Administrator Roman Gastesi had lobbied for the raises since July, saying the county has reined in spending, cut staff positions and built up reserves over the past four years.As expected, the vote passed by the same 3-2 margin it did Monday, when the second of second of three public hearings was held. Commissioners George Neugent and Kim Wigington dissented.The final aggregate tax rate of 4.1802 is 4.75 percent under the rollback rate necessary to generate the same tax revenue as the current year. Thats equal to $4.1802 per $1,000 of assessed property value.At that rate, the owner of a $300,000 home in the unincorporated area would pay $1,254 in taxes. The aggregate rate does not apply to all homeowners; some live in special taxing districts.Almost every employee will receive a 3 percent reimbursement that Gastesi wanted because workers are now required to contribute 3 percent of their salaries to the Florida Retirement System. The other 2 percent is for any employee whos not received a raise in the past three years. Staff added the provision that any pay increase cannot put an employee over the salary cap for his or her position.But the commission approved minor exceptions. The 18 employees in the states deferred retirement option program and those capped out at their current pay grade will not receive raises.Under DROP, government employees can retire after 30 years of employment, then get rehired. If that happens, their monthly Florida Retirement System benefits accumulate and earn tax-deferred interest.Commissioner David Rice was seen as the swing vote to approve raises for the fiscal year that starts on Oct. 1.He noted, One figure Id like to share with you, and that is even with these raises and most of the county employees will get 5 percent the total amount of money well spend for Monroe County salaries next year is less than it was this year, he said, pointing to attrition and streamlining.The total budget which includes state and federal revenue sharing, grants and the like is $319 million, down from $343 million three years ago. The total day-to-day operating budget is $78.1 million.Most getting salary hikes starting Oct.1By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCOUNTY GOVERNMENT

Hulme thought the Conchs would have a relatively easy time on Wednesday with what she knows is a Dolphins program in rebuilding mode. It turned out to be just the opposite, as Key West just squeaked out a victory in five games over a very game Marathon squad. I was very surprised. When we played Marathon in the preseason, theyre rebuilding so it wasnt much of a game. I thought [Wednesday] night would be a good opportunity to get some of my younger girls into the game, Hulme said. That wasnt the case, though, as Marathon shocked the Conchsstarting lineup and took the first game 25-20. Hulme sat her Alineup in favor of bench players for the second game, which Marathon also won, 25-22. ATaylor Konrath kill gave the Dolphins a sixpoint 13-7 lead, their largest of the game.

The Canesvictory moved their District 16-4A record to 2-1 (3-3 overall) with the 25-14, 25-16, 2523 sweep of the Lady Sabres. Coral Shores delivered a season-high 16 serving aces in the win. Head coach Andy Thiery said the convincing win was welcome in the wake of Tuesdays three-game loss to district leader Gulliver Prep, 25-21, 25-16, 25-16. After a tough [Gulliver] defeat, its always nice to rebound with a strong performance on your home floor against a district opponent, Thiery said. Were getting close to that time of the season when a team will either really pull it together or not, he said. So far, this team has responded. Senior hitters Kelsie Thiele and Lakelia Cooper each scored nine kills. Noting the solid sets from Shanna Morehouse and Ellie Leopold and reliable team passing, Thiery said, At times, the game aesthetically just looked incredible.

Jessie Ledwith served a 15-point string in the first game, and Lauren Montagne reeled off 10 straight service points in the second. Abbey Lindholm served 14 points in the third game.

The Dolphins196stroke total in a Sept. 7 match was the first time the team broke 200 in three years. The top four ninehole scores make the team total in high school golf. Two days later, the team shot 192 in a loss to Miami Country Day. But on Tuesday, the Dolphins took a step they hadnt taken in four years winning a match. Marathon shot a 186 at the Biltmore Golf Course in Miami that was good enough for a six-stroke win over LaSalle High School (192). Palmer Trinity Schools 173 was good enough to beat the Dolphins and LaSalles Lions. We broke 190 and weve gone down three matches [in a row], so Im definitely happy, coach Kevin Freeman said. Kodi Daniels44 led the Dolphins. He was followed by Kyle Pierce (45), Jake Logan (48) and Kevin McKeon (49). Jake probably had the most outstanding round because he had a nine on the [par-five] first hole, but on the last eight holes shot a 38, Freeman said. The Dolphins have collectively struggled this year with their short game. Freeman said the team reversed that trend Tuesday. These greens have given us trouble in the past; theyre a lot quicker than in Marathon. But we only had one three-putt all day, he said. The Dolphins were scheduled to visit Key West Friday for a match against the Conchs and Gulliver Prep. Results were not available at press time. The three teams are also scheduled to play 18 holes today starting at 11 a.m. at the Key West Golf Club.The team bests LaSalles Lions with a 186MARATHON GOLFBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comHome still tough forLady ConchsOn Tuesday afternoon, a day before the Key West High volleyball team won its first match at Marathon, the Conchs were swept at home by district opponent St. Brendan, 25-21, 25-20, 25-21. It was the third time this season that the Conchs lost a match in three consecutive games at the Bobby Menendez Gym. In the first game, the Conchs got to within 23-21 after erasing a big lead, but kills by Juli Calienes and Michelle Bulnes finished the game for the Sabres. In the second game, Key West trailed, 22-20, before St. Brendans Sabres won on two tap shots by Bulnes and a service ace by Alessandra Plana. In the third game, the Conchs had a 20-14 lead before the Sabres reeled off 11 of the next 12 points. We need to turn the corner, Key West coach Jessy Hulme said. We need to get out in front in games and stay in front. Britney Price and Lindsay Cowpland each had seven points for the Conchs, Shaniya Watson had six, Matti Reid had five and Courtnie Coleman had four. Bulnes led St. Brendan with 14 points.

But whatever message Hulme was trying to send to her starting lineup, it went through loud and clear. The starting lineup returned and dominated the Dolphins in the third and fourth games, 25-7 and 25-9. Senior Olha Morekhodovas powerful jump serve was too much for the Dolphins to handle in those games. Six-foottwo-inch senior Lindsey Cowpland also asserted herself at the net in both games. She had multiple kills and blocks. It appeared Key West would run away with the fifth and final game after building an 8-1 lead. But Marathon won four straight points, capped by an Ashley Stullenburger ace, to make it 8-5. Key West led by just one, 10-9, before rattling off four straight points to go up 14-9. ASydney Konrath ace made the score 14-11, but a foot fault on her next serve ended the comeback bid. Marathon (2-6) and Key West (1-4) are both scheduled to take part in the Key West Invitational tournament over the weekend. Each will play five games. Hulme said Vero Beach, Royal Palm Beach, Hardee Senior and American High are the other participants.Conchs catch fireFrom Vollyball,1B Relay team sets school recordAnew school record was the highlight of Marathon High Schools Tuesday swim meet against LaSalle High and Ransom Everglades schools at host Ransom. Markie Sandusky, Kyra Simcic-Swanson, Malorie Woodbury and Abi Connell shaved two seconds off their 400-yard freestyle relay record of 4:43, finishing in 4:41. The Dolphins faced stiff competition in the Lions and Raiders, finishing behind both in the boys and girls meets. Ransom is a traditionally powerful program. Ransom and LaSalle were both strong teams and it was good to get out there against strong year-long swimmers. There were some good races, coach Sarah Maschal said. Maschal said sophomore Sydney Schuhmacher swam well, shaving 15 seconds off her previous-best 200-yard freestyle time. She finished at 3:15. The boys team has added five middle-school swimmers the past week, doubling the team in size. The younger kids will have a chance to swim against fellow middleschoolers when the Dolphins visit Gulliver Prep today for an invitational.But Dolphins fall to Lions and RaidersMARATHON SWIMMINGBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comHurricane boys win PennekampAfirst-place finish by Steven Chadwick and a third by Pablo Gonzalez gave Coral Shores High Schools boys cross-country team a victory in the first home meet Tuesday.

Mimi Young City ClerkPublished Keynoter 9/17/11 Salt of the sea becomes salt of the earthFrom the outside, Midge Jollys newest salt house looks like an igloo that went long instead of domed. Inside, though, a block of ice wouldnt stand a chance. Actually some friends have asked us if well lend it out as a sauna, Jolly says. It can get to 149 degrees in there in the middle of the day. Perfect for producing buckets of sweat and, in about a months time, 40 quarts of sea salt. Jolly and her husband, Tom Weyant, are the founders of Florida Keys Sea Salt. Its selling in several markets in the Keys and has been purchased wholesale (though not yet offered retail) by The Meadow (www.atthemeadow.com), an online gourmet store that sells nearly 100 salts from around the world. Jolly and Weyant have four salt houses on their property on Sugarloaf Key, the newest 32 feet long, 12 feet wide and 6 feet tall. White plastic sheeting arches over the top, and each end is covered in small-gauge mesh to keep out the bugs (biologicals Jolly calls them) and facilitate evaporation. Two long, shallow troughs, called pans, run the length of the structure, each of which holds 240 gallons of seawater about three bathtubsworth from nearby Bow Channel. After 26 days of evaporation, there was the first hint of salt fine grayish crystals. In another 10 days or so, when the water has almost completely evaporated, Jolly will scrape up snow-white crystals with her favorite low-tech tool. I will bring out a squeegee, she says, I spent lots of time figuring that out. I used to use spatulas. She and her husband still are figuring out a lot of things, Jolly says. Weve been at it now in prototype and testing for a long time. But all of a sudden, the things in production, which we werent before, so it seems to outsiders were knowledgeable An early lesson: You cant make sea salt in a lobster pot. That virgin batch was ugly, and it really didnt taste good. I had seen an interview with a Scottish chef. Being of Scottish descent myself, I was especially interested. I thought, If he can do that, I can do that. We went and got three gallons of water and put it on the stove and cooked and cooked and cooked and oh my gosh we cooked forever. It got down to this gray sludgy stuff that was just muddy and yucky. I think I took a bath in it, she says with a laugh. I assure you, we did not eat it. But they read volumes, they consulted a University of Florida expert, they got help building the salt houses and, suddenly, theyre salt farmers. Jolly sees their endeavor as a link between the Keyspast and future. In the early 1800s, salt making was a major, and lucrative, industry in the Lower Keys. Natural salt pans lined the eastern edge of Key West, and Bahamian laborers, who had the expertise, made industrialists wealthy. Everything old is new again, and a blizzard of artisan salts brick red from Hawaii, dove gray from Brittany, babygirl pink from Australia attests to the booming popularity of the ancient craft.Life changesWhen Jolly and Weyant started out, however, survival was uppermost in their minds. She had been a midwife, but the number of home births in their community declined. I became a master gardener and connected with native plants. Thats really my heart, she says. Landscaping followed. When Hurricane Wilma came and brought, we think, 13 feet of water under our house, she also brought lots of salt with her and turned our landscaping business upside down, Jolly says. (Fortunately, the house rests on 14-foot stilts.) Right after that, my husband had life-altering spinal surgery, and I could see that our life was not going to be keeping in the same direction, she says. I had given some thought to doing some plantings on the land and doing farmers markets, but there was too much salt in the soil. In 2006, they founded their new business, and salt became their salvation. The look and the feel of each batch that Jolly harvests varies depending upon the time of year, the temperature, the position of the sun and whether any rainwater resoaked the salt. I dont really know how to identify our spring salt other than it has the giant crystals that form really fast, or the trace mineral salt, which is wet and a little grayish a classic sea salt gray or the sulphur salt which comes from our well, and that has a reddishgold tint to it. And the taste? Ana Machado is an assistant professor at Johnson & Wales University in North Miami. One of the first things to which she introduces her incoming students is salt not the salt they think they know, but a diversity of salts from around the world. They say, Salt is salty, and thats that,? Machado says. But theres a lot more than that. Theres the minerals, and distinctive crunchiness because of the size of the crystals. She tasted a couple of types of Florida Keys Sea Salt, sampling Winter Solstice first. It has a relatively small crystal because the water evaporated slowly: It goes intense in the beginning, then it dissipates really fast wow! It would be great on steaks and fish. Bam! Theres impact on the flavor. And of Spring Harvest salt: The water evaporated so fast that it builds these incredible hollow pyramids. Very big, about an eighth of an inch square, Machado says. Its not intense as the other one, lighter; you feel the flavor of the saltiness and then its mellow all the way. This would be good on anything poached where theres a liquid where you would dissolve the salt. Though salt is the most tangible result of Jollys efforts, she says she is harvesting something more precious. I dont see any of the things that have happened to us as accidents. ... Wilmas watery rush through here brought Florida Keys Sea Salt to us, and I see it as a way that we will be able to stay in our home and stay in the Keys where our children were born.Homegrown business a successBy NANCY ANCRUMnancrum@MiamiHerald.comKEYS HORTICULTURE Meeting Notice Monroe County Land AuthorityThe Monroe County Land Authority Advisory Committee will conduct a public meeting in the Monroe Regional Service Center located at 2796 Overseas Highway, Suite 104,Marathon, Florida on September 28, 2011 beginning at 9:30 AM.
