New Rochelle, N.Y., resident John Van Lindt told the Keynoter Tuesday that hed like to meet with Key West officials about the possibility of an off-track betting operation there. Van Lindt was clear any talks would be preliminary and that hes not thoroughly explored the idea of a Key West operation. Im at a real disadvantage because Im so far away, he said. He wanted to come and speak with me, but I told him until after the election I wont have time, Key West Mayor Craig Cates said. I never have been [in favor of casino gambling]. I always said we cant be everything to everybody.Monroe County Commissioner George Neugent floated preliminary plans for casino gambling at Florida Keys Marathon Airport at a late June Marathon City Council meeting. His hope was that it would generate funding for county infrastructure projects, in particular wastewater and stormwater efforts. Hes more interested in Key West, because of the population, than Marathon. But unless something happens legislatively, the casino situation just cant happen, Neugent said.

So far that includes painting the exterior of Sigsee Charter School, which caters to children of active-duty Navy personnel, and working with the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition to build a playground. FKOC manages transitional housing for homeless men and women in the Poinciana Plaza neighborhood off Duck Avenue; teams of Spruance crew were there on Tuesday and Wednesday working on the playground, refurbishing basketball courts and erecting a flag pole in honor of veterans who died homeless. The 510-foot, 9,200-ton destroyer, berthed at the Outer Mole Pier, arrived at Naval Air Station Key West on Friday afternoon, a week ahead of its formal commissioning ceremony on Oct. 1. Cmdr.

Those customers who use the least amount of power each month are the ones who will feel the billing change the most.People who use a relatively small amount of electricity over the course of a year weekenders or winter residents were not actually paying a fair share of the operating costs, said Frank Hawkins, FKEC board member and chair of the finance committee.Abill for someone who turns off every electric item in his or her home will see their base rate increase from $10 to the $24.80, he saidCoupled with a slight decrease in the amount charged for power costs, an average customers bill should not change significantly under the rate restructuring plan, FKEC officials said.If youre using about 1250 kilowatt hours, there will be a slight increase in the total bill, FKEC chief executive Scott Newberry said.

Rick Scott. The four-year terms of Chairman Spencer Slate and Trustee Ed Scales ended in May and March 2010, respectively; Trustee Kim Bassetts four-year tenure lapsed back in May. Both Slate and Scales have applied to Scotts office for reappointment, while Bassett has said she wont be seeking another term. Vying for the spot Bassett is vacating are prominent Realtor Brian Schmitt and former Monroe County and Marathon mayor Mike Puto. Schmitt, who preceded Bassett on the FKCC board serving two terms, was meeting with Scott in Miami on Tuesday afternoon for an interview to be conducted after press time. He told the Keynoter that whoever is appointed will help choose the next college president; current President Larry Tyrees contract is valid through June 30, 2012. If selected, this would not be Schmitts first experience helping to choose a president as he was on the board that picked Tyrees predecessor Jill Landesberg-Boyle. She was eventually forced to leave her contract early after criticism of her management style from college staff came to a very nasty, very public head.Schmitt considered whether Landesberg-Boyle proved a good choice: Ive certainly thought about that quite a bit, he said.

Emergency services board cutsThe board that oversees the budgets of Key Largos fire and ambulance services cut about $200,000 from its proposed operating expenses and voted on a final taxing rate that will bring in about 7 percent less revenue than this fiscal year.The five commissioners on the Key Largo FireRescue and Emergency Medical Services District board unanimously approved a tax rate of about 79 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value Monday night.Thats the same rate that Key Largo home and business owners paid this year, but their actual tax bill should be less next fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1, since assessed property rates went down about 8 percent in Key Largo, said Peter Rosasco, the taxing districts contracted accountant. At this rate, the owner of a $300,000 house will pay about $237 for fire protection and ambulance services.Assuming a 96 percent collection rate, the taxing district will earn more than $1.71 million in property tax revenue. The district brought in $1.73 million this year.The emergency services taxing districts operating budget for the 2011-12 fiscal year is $2,087,983. Some of the most significant cuts to the budget came from not adding $150,000 to the fire departments vehicle replacement fund and by cutting the travel budget by $4,000. The commissioners also decided not to renew a $40,000-a-year administrator position after Bruce Stoll abruptly left that post earlier this month. Stoll was hired to act as a liaison between the commissioners and the leadership of the fire department and ambulance service. The position was created earlier this year because some commissioners wanted more oversight into how the fire and ambulance services were spending money. Fire Chief Sergio Garcia was one of the biggest critics of creating the job. Garcia said Monday that his department will continue working on several items Stoll got started before he stepped down. Among these are ordinances for penalizing homes and businesses for repeated false alarms and one for fining property owners for burning debris in their yards.$150,000 less for vehicle replacementsBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,September 28,2011 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.9278 THURS.9277 FRI.9177 SAT.9077 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

The girl was visiting from California with her family, according to police. They were staying at Tranquility Bay Resort in late July when she met Justin Ahearn, who was working for Turtle Bay Water Sports. On two occasions, according to the arrest report, the girl snuck out of the residence where she was staying and met Ahearn. They went to his house and engaged in sexual activity. After returning to California, her mother found out about the incident after finding a pregnancy test in her daughters room. The mother called the Sheriffs Office to report what happened. Major Crimes Detective Deborah Ryan worked with police in Brea, California to investigate the case. During the investigation, detectives say they confirmed Ahearn knew the girl was 17 years old at the time he had sexual relations with her. Awarrant was obtained for his arrest. He was taken into custody and has been charged with five counts of sexual activity with a minor. an amendment to the state Constitution that Neugent called a long shot. Based on what we know now, things have to happen in Tallahassee before we get what wed like to see. Let that happen in the next session and go from there, Neugent said. I still think its something to be looked at, but theres nothing we can do to make it happen any faster than just a natural evolution. State Rep. Ron Saunders, the House Democratic leader from Key West, agreed with Neugent. He was contacted in recent months by the owners of Hamilton Jai Alai in Jasper, Fl., north of Gainesville, who considered a similar operation in the Keys. It would require a countywide referendum and a big expenditure to buy the property and build the building. Its a pretty big investment, Saunders said. They just never moved forward.In Florida, pari-mutuel betting parlors can have horse racing, greyhound racing, jai alai and poker games.

Apolice incident report released by the Key West Police Department indicates two students walked in late to teacher Leslie Holmes class. She reported smelling marijuana and then contacted Assistant Principal Chris Valdez, who also told police he smelled marijuana. When Valdez searched the students bag, according to a police report, he repoted finding a bandage container holding 18.5 bars of narcotic antidepressant Xanax, a marijuana pipe with residue, a type of synthetic marijuana called Spice, a bottle of Clear Eyes, a vanilla-flavored cigarillo, two lighters and $130 in cash. School resource offer Robert Bulnes, in the incident report, quotes the suspect, Tony Estenoz, telling Valdez Im trying to get rid of them by selling them. Bulnes, also quotes the teen as admitting the items found in the bag were his. Estenoz was taken into police custody and transported to the Monroe County Detention Center on Friday, where he was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice; hes charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor, and felony possession of drugs with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a church or school. Key West High School Principal Amber Bosco said this was a single incident, and there were no other students involved. Theres an immediate suspension, she said, then the legal case takes over, then we look in to it from an educational standpoint for possible further consequences at the school level. That hasnt been determined, she said.When students are arrested on this type of charge or suspended in general, privileges are lost like not being able to participate in sports or extracurriculars.The boys father and namesake, reached Tuesday afternoon at the Shell station he owns on North Roosevelt Boulevard and First Street, didnt comment. In a message he left with the Keynoter Estenoz said: kids make stupid mistakes when theyre young, and that he regrets his son, a high school baseball player, may have to live with the consequences of his actions.Incident report Leads to arrest and suspensionBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTListening proved hard lessonWhile two candidates are battling it out for the District 4 Key West City Commission seat hes vacating, Barry Gibson is reflecting on his four years in elected office, and looking to the future.Gibson, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., came to the Keys in 1983 and began working with Marine Bank in Marathon. After a short stint in Key Largo, he moved to Key West and worked for Southeast Bank, then was county president of First Union Bank. In 1994, he bought Shades of Key West, a sunglass shop at 335 Duval St., which in a recent interview with the Keynoter, Gibson described as kind of like my own little city hall. When he decided to run for office, and was subsequently elected, in 2007, Gibson said he first felt a strong sense of competition wanting to win the seat, then humility that his friends and neighbors saw fit to elect him, followed by being overwhelmed with the steep learning curve. Theres no city commissioner manual, he joked. I had to learn to listen. I knew many of the players in the city, but I had to learn how the city runs.Gibsons District 4 comprises many residential areas on and around Flagler Avenue, home to many of the multi-generational Key West families that make up the bulk of the professional workforce.He described his constituents as the coffee shop crowd. Theyre not always going to sit at a meeting for four or five hours, but they sure dont hesitate to call me or talk to me at the grocery store or out at an event. [Commissioners] are like ambassadors for the city.Gibson is married to Patricia Docherty, the Chief Assistant Monroe County Public Defender; they have a four-year-old daughter, Taylor.Gibson said that bringing a common sense, business, approach to the city has served him well; although he acknowledged that his propensity for extensive questioning of city staff does not go unnoticed by his colleagues on the dais.They accuse of me sometimes of asking too many questions and give me a little grief, he said, but Im just doing my job. I would go to meetings thinking I would vote one way, but then voted another. I dont call it flipflopping; I call it becoming educated. Youve got to be open-minded up there.Reflecting on his four years in office, Gibson singled out voting to settle the Duck Tours Seafari Inc. lawsuit as chief among his commission accomplishments. After more than a decade of litigation, the city paid more than $8 million to the sightseeing company, which a judge and jury agreed was driven out of business by monopolistic franchise agreements held by the city with Ducks competitor Historic Tours of America. As far as accomplishments specific to his district, Gibson pointed out a complete overhaul of Flagler Avenue between White Street and First Street and a similar rehab underway on Atlantic Boulevard.City Commissioner reflects on his learning curveKEY WESTCommission urges workablerulesAregulated anchoring program for some nearshore Florida Keys waters moved forward this week, with Key West Harbor added to the list of potential sites. Other areas being reviewed for possible inclusion in the state pilot program are Boca Chica Basin in the Lower Keys, and Sunset Cove off Key Largos bayside.Three Monroe County Commissioners cautioned the countys Marine Resources administrator not to draft new heavy-handed rules for liveaboard or cruising boaters.Get something workable, Commissioner Kim Wigington told Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones. The solution lies in moderation. Im concerned about onerous rules or being heavy-handed. Under a state pilot program approved in 2009, Monroe County is one of five Florida coastal areas being allowed to draft new anchoring rules on a test basis to cover stationary vessels outside existing mooring zones. At a Sept. 21 meeting, Jones asked for county commission approval to draft an ordinance for the affected areas that would: require proof of septic pumpouts;require a Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel inspection; andban vessels deemed at risk by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. An at-risk vessel essentially is considered to be in poor repair, and a strong candidate to become a derelict vessel after sinking.The staff recommendation initially listed just Boca Chica Basin and Sunset Cove as test areas, but county commissioners added Key West Harbor to the list. Commissioner David Rice called areas of Key West Harbor an eyesore and a mess...There are imminently derelict vessels all over out there. Board members noted that the county could not ethically require pumpout of boat holding tanks if there are no pumpout boats or facilities nearby. Commissioner George Neugent, a former liveaboard, said problems from unregulated moooring fields continue to grow, particularly with abandoned boats that are costly to remove. Lets not spend another 20 years on this, Neugent said. We need to continue protecting what we value, and thats the resources. Speakers from the public expressed concern and support for the project. Charmaine Smith Ladd, a Marathon representative of the Boaters Anchoring Rights and Responsibilities group, said many liveaboards are very nervous about overreach with unnecessary regulations. Boaters see rules requiring inspections and pumpouts as another tool for law enforcement to harass them, she said.

Marine,Port Committee meetsMonroe Countys Marine & Port Advisory Committee meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the Harvey Government Center, 1200 Truman Ave., Key West. The topics under discussion will include anchoring issues and the development of draft regulations in association with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Pilot Program. This gathering in the lower Keys is being held to address anchoring and derelict vessel issues in the area of Boca Chica basin. The FWC Pilot Program was created by the Florida Legislature in 2009. The FWC has chosen Monroe County, in partnership with Key West and Marathon, as one of five local governments to participate in the Pilot Program. Pilot Program objectives include:Promote the establishment and use of public mooring fieldsPromote public access to the waters of this stateEnhance navigational safetyProtect maritime infrastructureProtect the marine environmentDeter improperly stored, abandoned, or derelict vesselsFinish line finally here?The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a dedication ceremony commemorating the completion of four related roadway projects on the Overseas Highway.

We noticed that over time, a lot of our fixed costs were being recovered through [billing for] variable energy costs, Newberry said. We are legally required to design rates that are fair, equitable and accurately reflect the actual cost of running the system, Newberry said. That wasnt quite happening so we are getting back to where we should be. The base charge raises money needed to build and maintain the FKEC system that supplies power to about 31,000 member-owners in the Middle and Upper Keys. The largest portion of virtually all FKEC bills goes to pay FPLfor the power it sells to the Keys cooperative. Thats supposed to be basically a pass-through, Hawkins said. As it was, we had come to depend on a cut of that revenue from the electric flow as part of our revenue stream, Hawkins said. Now weve taken a major step to separate the actual cost of running the Cooperative from the FPL costs.That should make it easier for FKEC members to track how much they pay directly for power demand, he said.This is in response to an ongoing discussion with greenadvocates asking us to do a better job of separating the two [costs], Hawkins said.The access charge of 80 cents per day goes toward maintaining and strengthening the physical power distribution, and maintaining emergency backup plants. Now everyone is paying more of a fair share of maintaining the Co-op, he said. The rate restructuring was passed unanimously by the board at its May 16 meeting. No public objections were raised.

Seizure off KCB nets suspectJust four months removed from a three-year prison term, admitted alligator killer Timothy Goll is in trouble with the law again. The 23-year-old Marathon resident was arrested Friday on three counts of out-of-season stone crab possession and one count of interfering with a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer. According to FWC spokesman Bobby Dube, Goll was mating aboard a commercial fishing boat operated by Kevin Yeider off the oceanside of Key Colony Beach Friday. An undercover officer approached the boat and Goll was seen tossing stone crabs back into the water. He was the one throwing the product overboard, so thats why we arrested him. The operator was cited for the same things, except he [also] didnt have his saltwater products license on him, Dube said. Dube said the boat was brought back to shore and inspected further, where officers found 44 whole stone crabs, four female egg-bearing stone crabs and two stone crab claws already separated from the body. Thats why its great to have undercover boats. If its marked, unless you have binoculars theyve already dumped all the product by the time we get a half-mile away, he said. Dube said each misdemeanor count carries a maximum penalty of up to one year in jail and a $500 fine. Assistant State Attorney Val Winter, who prosecuted Golls alligator poaching charge, told the Keynoter he was not on probation after being released from prison in May. It was numerous violations of probation for the 2006 incident including testing positive for cocaine and marijuana in a February 2009 drug test that landed him the three-year prison sentence with credit for time served. He was sentenced in May 2009. The brutal gator attack made headlines for months. Goll and Big Pine resident Jordan Milo lured a six-footlong alligator out of the freshwater reserve using dead birds, shot its eyes with a pellet gun and clubbed it with a baseball bat.

How horrifying to learn that these higher-usage customers were actually subsidizing the rest of us. Its, well its simply un-American. Its wonderful that the co-op figured this out. Maybe the oil companies can learn from the co-op and charge Hummer drivers a few pennies less for gas while hybrid drivers would pay more. Or how about if rich people pay a lower federal tax rate than middleclass people? Oh wait, thats already happening. I forgot. So lets salute the Electric Co-op for upholding the American way of life. Michael Welber MarathonGroups embrace kids centerGrace Jones Daycare would like to thank the Women of the Moose for their generous donation of $903.59 for six new trikes and a Weekly Reader, which we will receive for one year for 50 children. The money was collected from several fundraisers and raffles held at the Moose. Also, some of the money was donated by members themselves to purchase two of the trikes and the balance needed of $311.73 was donated by the local chapter itself. The Ladies of the Moose are very familiar to us and to other charitable organizations, as they have continued to give generously to those in need. We appreciate to the fullest their tireless efforts and help given to us throughout the years that I have been at Grace Jones. The children are very happy with their new toys! Thank you for everything you do. Also, Grace Jones Daycare would like to thank Bobbie Bayles, Ginger Sayer and the Marathon Runners Club for their charitable donation of $500 to our center. We know that the 30th annual Seven Mile Bridge Run could not have been a success without all the volunteers that donated their time from our community.

Kristie Killam Key Deer Refuge Big Pine Key Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. For more than 235 years, the U.S. Postal Service has adhered to this unofficial creed. But now, the agency that is responsible for delivering mail to every resident of the nation at affordable rates is facing a financial crisis. Absent congressional action this year, the Postal Service will experience a cash shortfall and be forced to default on a payment to the federal government. The increased use of the Internet, combined with an ongoing recession, has had a dramatic and unprecedented impact on our countrys mail volume and on the Postal Services bottom line. We have responded by pursuing every available option under our control to aggressively cut costs and raise revenues, including slashing annual operating expenses by more than $12 billion and reducing our size by 110,000 career positions during the past four years. We also continue to consolidate our processing facilities to reduce personnel and transportation costs, and rightsize our expansive retail network by conducting studies of approximately 3,700 retail offices for possible closure. At the same time, the Postal Service is continuing to work with local retailers to offer products and services at more convenient locations places were people already shop, such as pharmacies, grocery stores and other appropriate retailers. This includes the introduction of the Village Post Office, an alternate access option that offers popular postal products and services such as stamps and flat-rate packaging. These aggressive efforts, however, are insufficient to close projected budget deficits and ensure the survival of the Postal Service beyond our current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. The Postal Service needs Congress to enact legislation that would eliminate the current mandate requiring retiree health benefit prepayments, which costs the Postal Service $5.5 billion annually. Legislation also is needed to return a $6.9 billion overpayment into the Federal Employees Retirement System to the Postal Service. If it were not for the unique health benefit pre-funding requirement, the Postal Service would have recorded a cumulative profit of $1 billion from 2007 to 2010. We also are exploring legislative proposals that would enable us to establish our own health benefits program, administer our own retirement system, and adjust the size of our workforce to match operational needs and the changing marketplace. In addition, legislation is needed that will give us the authority to determine the frequency of mail delivery, which can save the Postal Service roughly $3 billion each year. The Postal Service is not seeking tax subsidies. We receive no tax dollars for operating expenses, and rely on the sale of postage, products and services to fund our operations. Moreover, the Postal Service is not seeking additional borrowing authority. Indeed, the absolute last thing the Postal Service wants or needs is to incur additional debt. What the Postal Service needs is access to the money we already have overpaid into our retirement fund. The Postal Service delivers to more than 150 million addresses daily and the 167 billion pieces of mail delivered annually account for more than 40 percent of the worlds mail. We deliver to Americas homes and businesses more efficiently and at a lower cost than any comparable post all without the financial support of the American taxpayer. Even in an increasingly digital world, the Postal Service remains critical to the economy, supporting a mailing industry that represents more than 8 million jobs and more than $1 trillion in commercial activity annually. Regardless of how many people use the Internet to pay their bills and send documents, the core function of the Postal Service and core need of its customers the physical delivery of mail and packages to Americas homes and businesses will always exist. And despite doom-and-gloom headlines, the Postal Service can have a bright future and be put on the road to profitability if given the flexibility from Congress to operate more like a business does. Its time for Congress to swiftly complete its rounds, and pass substantive legislation to transform the Postal Service business model which will put it on a sound financial footing for generations to come. Editors note: The Postal Service is looking at relaxing its service standards for first-class mail and magazines. If that happens, it would be in early 2012. Other than Express Mail, there would be no overnight mail anymore; first-class mail and magazines to and from the Florida Keys would take two to three days instead of one to three days.Avael our choice for District 4; Bradford, Symroski bring experience most valued on utility boardKey West voters have a golden opportunity to prove the skeptics and cynics wrong come Oct. 4.With only one contested commission seat and a citywide mayoral contest, some predict a low-turnout election.That ignores the hot contest for two utility board seats with two incumbents facing challenges from candidates with no previous experience running for elected office.Those who make it their business to predict turnout and trends fear that as few as 15 percent of eligible voters will bother to vote. That would be a shame. The citywide mayoral race presents challenges with political critic Margaret Romero mounting a spirited campaign that features lots of radio ads and sloganeering. Carie Noda, who has run unsuccessfully for mayor before, faces an uphill battle this time. Thats because incumbent Craig Cates has done a good job at fulfilling campaign promises and not cowing to entrenched downtown interests that often dominate political discourse in Key West.While we appreciate Romeros critical eye on the inner workings of government, we dont find her proposed solutions to be focused and credible. Joining the hue and cry over the Horace OBryant permitting snafus was extreme, aligned with those who argued tear it down and start over. Excuse us, but that was a $10 million penalty maybe more and would have cost every taxpayer in the Keys, not just those few who live within sight of the new middle-school campus.Cates refused to join those who were taking cheap shots. As mayor, he helped push for a new ambulance service contract that will save taxpayers more than $600,000 a year in previous subsidies. And he wrested control over the Truman Waterfront park property from private developers and found a source of capital funds to finally begin fulfilling promises for more green space and park play areas.Hes not afraid to tangle with powerful interest groups to represent the average Joe living and working in the Southernmost City. We endorse Craig Cates for another two-year term as mayor. In the District 4 commission race, voters face the choice between a newbie and a veteran politician. While Julio Avael may not feel comfortable being dubbed a politician, he holds the distinction of being the longest-serving city manager in Key West history.You cant stay in that hot seat without being a politician.Hes being challenged by political newcomer Tony (Fat) Yaniz, who relies on his Conch street cred to overcome limited experience in running anything as complicated as a $40 million city budget. Being in charge of an over-39 mens softball league is not the same thing as running a city.We endorse Avael with this caveat if elected, hes one of seven votes, not the guy counting noses each week to manage the city. The Utility Board of Key West has a vigorous campaign underway with newcomers Barry Barroso and Tony Estenoz challenging incumbents Ty Symroski and Charles Bradford. Both Bradford and Symroski have done solid work on behalf of ratepayers, reducing expenses and looking for ways to innovate for even more efficiencies. We dont agree with Estenoz and Barroso that utility rates should subsidize overly generous salaries in a de facto homeboy jobs network. Voters should re-elect Bradford and Symroski.GUEST COLUMNCongress must act now to save Postal Service Jeffrey Becker is South Florida district manager for the U.S. Postal Service, overseeing 187 post offices and five processing plants from Key West to Fort Pierce.

Fishermens gets new look,nameTheres a new look, a new name and soon a new sign and website coming for Fishermens Hospital. Trustees will unveil the new sign today at noon in front of the hospital, which admitted its first patient in September, 1962. The new name will be Fishermens Community Hospital. Its just a one-word addition to the hospital name, but it carries tremendous significance for the future of health care in this area, Scott Landrum, chief transition officer, said.Landrum works for Quorum Intensive Resources, a consulting firm hired by the trustees to handle the transition from for-profit management to nonprofit status.The hospital board ended its longstanding contract with Naples-based Health Management Associates (HMA) in July. The entire staff at the hospital is to be commended for their help and assistance in making this move from for profit to communitybased nonprofit, said Michael Cunningham, chair for the hospital board. This was a major undertaking, and everyone involved volunteers, maintenance staff, nurses, doctors, medical technicians and administrative staff did their part to make this a smooth and effective transition. Cunningham is the chief executive officer of Keys AHEC, a countywide community health and education organization. Other officers serving on the board include Daniel Samess, vice president; Ginger Snead, secretary, and Peter Chapman, treasurer. Anew website for the hospital makes it debut Friday, Sept. 30. Cunningham said the staff has been engaged from the start of this process, from helping pick the new logo, identifying needed equipment and technologies, to suggesting new ways to make the hospital work more efficiently and deliver better care to our patients. Recently, Fishermens has expanded its offerings on Big Pine, which has long been part of the hospitals service area, which extends from Big Pine to Long Key. In July, Fishermens Physical Therapy Center moved to a larger location at 33 Ships Way Rd., Big Pine Key and added new rehabilitation equipment. The physical therapy center offers physical and occupational therapy services to those living between Marathon and Key West. The center two physical therapists, Cindy Mooneyham and Randy Hochberg, and an occupational therapist, Christy Minor, who also serves as center manager. Physical therapist Jeff Coe and physical therapy assistant Karen Angle help out when the center is busy. Cunningham said the staff has helped identify needed equipment and services during the transition from HMAto Quorum. In addition, they have been suggesting new ways to make the hospital work more efficiently and deliver better care to our patients. Dr. Harlan Pettit, chief of medical staff, said hes optimistic about the change in the hospital to a community-based health care organization. Rather than take direction from a management company located in another part of the state, we now have a great opportunity to protect, improve and invest in high quality health care that meets the particular needs of this community. As part of its management contract, Quorem provides the chief executive officer for the hospital along with chief financial officer (CFO) until the trustees recruit and hire a full-time replacement for Landrum. Quorem recently brought in a new CFO, Mike Schimming.Logo boasts fish motif, team themeMARATHON Business Fishermens Hospital gets high scoreFishermens Hospital in Marathon was recently named one of the nations top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. The Joint Commission analyzed data reported about evidence-based clinical processes shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and childrens asthma. Fishermens is one of only 405 U.S. hospitals and critical access hospitals earning the distinction of top performer on key quality measures. To be recognized as a top performer in this field, an organization must have met two 95 percent performance thresholds during the past calendar year. Fishermens Hospital achieved those thresholds for pneumonia. In addition to being included in the Joint Commissions Improving Americas Hospitals annual report, Fishermens Hospital will be recognized on the Joint Commissions Quality Check website ( www.qualitycheck.org ).HEALTH CARE Fishermens Hospital sign being replaced today.New logo will grace the sign out front of Fishermens Hospital starting Sept.28.Keynoter Staff PETTIT CUNNINGHAMLeadership selects 19 for Class XXLeadership Monroe County, the educational non-profit community leadership organization, announces its twentieth year of programs with the selection of Class XX.The program is aimed at residents who are active in leadership roles within the private sector, government, or community organizations. Through a series of one and two-day sessions, participants examine fundamental public and private segments throughout the county and gather information to help them make quality leadership decisions which they can incorporate into their respective companies and organizations, and also provide the environment for mutual awareness on issues which class members confront. The Key West Chamber of Commerce developed Leadership Monroe County in 1992, to address the rapidly changing needs and concerns of the county, develop a group of well-educated leaders, and help guide the community in a positive direction. The organization came under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys, in 2006 with Class XV, and during this past year has established itself as an independent group, governed by a countywide member Board of Directors. Present Officers are elected LMC alumni: President Manny Madruga, VicePresident Jason Koler, Secretary Holly MerrillRaschein, and Treasurer Ray Rhash, with Program Coordinator Michael Shields. Sessions begin October 7 and 8 in Key West, with subsequent classes each month, in the Lower, Middle and Upper Keys, culminating in graduation, April, 2012. Led by experts in the respective fields surveyed, classes this year focus on the tourism industry, the economy, environmental issues, education, government, judiciary and law system, military in the Keys, health care and human services, emergency management, arts and culture, the media, along with ongoing, intensive leadership development.

State-mandated cuts impact water monitoringThe agencies in charge of restoring the Everglades are set to gut a science program critical to determining whether work theyre doing is helping or hurting plants and animals that live there from algae that anchors the bottom of the food chain to alligators that feast at its top. The budget for the longrunning monitoring program, which assesses key indicator species that serve as the vital signs of complex, interconnected Everglades ecosystems, is being slashed by almost 60 percent overall, with nearly a dozen research projects eliminated completely. The cuts, all but finalized, drew sharp criticism from some members of an interagency Everglades restoration group that reviewed them last week. They warned that the resulting data gap could compromise the ambitious multibillion-dollar restoration effort. Its devastating. Its completely killing the science, the foundation on which everything was built,said Ronnie Best, coordinator of the greater Everglades science program for the U.S. Geological Survey. We cant move forward in the future with any confidence that what were doing is making a difference because we wont be out there monitoring.The cuts come from the two partners splitting the cost of the ambitious $14 billion Everglades restoration effort, the South Florida Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The districts governing board, under orders from Gov. Rick Scott and state lawmakers to reduce yearly spending by 30 percent, last week approved an austere $600 million budget that lopped off some $130 million through layoffs and benefits reductions as well as delays of maintenance work and Everglades projects. The science monitoring program took an outsized hit, with the district cutting its share of funding some 71 percent, from $2.3 million to $645,000. The Corps, also one of the programs primary supporters, is proposing a cut of about 40 percent, from $5.8 million to about $3.5 million. Susan Gray, the districts chief environmental scientist, said the district had worked with the Corps as well as other agencies and academic researchers handling monitoring to prioritize projects in light of the very tough financial situation. The district is legally obligated to continue certain monitoring, she said but the cuts were fashioned to preserve critical measures across the Everglades. She also said the program, specifically designed under the 2000 Everglades restoration plan to track and analyze large-scale changes in the system, can be supplemented with data from individual restoration projects or by other agencies. It was also decided that some monitoring could be left on standby and potentially resumed down the road as projects are built. Still, she acknowledged the cuts were significant, especially to monitoring programs that have been optimized,meaning trimmed, several times in the last few years. The result is that the expected budget for 2012 of about $3.9 million is down by more than half from this year and more than twothirds from 2008. There was not any fluff, Gray said. Were losing some of the cause-and-effect science that is so critical to understanding how the system operates. Among the monitoring that will be halted: submerged vegetation in Biscayne Bay, the Indian River Lagoon and Loxahatchee watershed; water quality, circulation and salinity in southern coastal areas; assessments of crocodiles and alligators, fishes in marshes and mangroves, and juvenile pink shrimp. Monitoring damaging algae blooms in Florida Bay the blooms have been a persistent problem also will be ended. Money for more than a dozen other projects will be cut from 10 to 83 percent. Scientists like Frank Mazzotti, a University of Florida wildlife ecology professor based in Davie, said the most frustrating thing is that $4 million savings amounts to a drop in the bucket of an Everglades restoration plan with an estimated official price tag of $14 billion. In the grand scheme of things, its not like they are saving a lot of money by doing this,said Mazzotti, who for decades has monitored South Floridas populations of crocodiles and alligators, creatures whose movements, productivity, growth rates and numbers have proven to be good gauges of changes in water levels and quality. The program cut all $300,000 for his surveys, meaning a half-dozen technician and grad students will be out of work. Hell continue more limited work himself with funding from other agencies. In the Everglades, where life waxes and wanes with seasonal rainfall and changes in water levels, he believes there is a risk of missing potentially serious changes if monitoring is dropped for a year or more. He likened it to skipping annual dentist visits: If you only go every five years, instead of a little cavity, you might need a root canal. Joel Trexler, a professor of biology at Florida International University, echoed Mazzotti. Aprogram he runs with FIU colleague Evelyn Gaiser was lopped by more $200,000 to $315,000. Gaiser monitors periphyton, ubiquitous algae that are the base of the Everglades food chain, while Trexler focuses on crayfish and small fish, which eat algae and in turn are eaten by wading birds. Theyve already had to trim a six-person technical staff in half. Worse, the cut, combined with a decision by the district to no longer allow researchers to charter its helicopters, will put some spots in the Everglades effectively out of reach, he said. Trexler fears the cuts will undermine what was supposed to be one of the hallmarks of Everglades restoration, a concept called adaptive managementmeaning that changes observed on the ground are supposed to guide decisions on projects designs and operation. The idea was to avoid mistakes of the past, with engineering projects in one spot producing unintended and unfortunate ripple effects elsewhere. Cutting the C-111 canal to drain farms in South Miami-Dade, for instance, shunted water flow away from Florida Bay, resulting in higher salinity, periodic seagrass die-offs and algae blooms. Often in a system like the Everglades,Trexler said, the impacts and the consequences are far distance and there are often surprises. Mazzotti, Best and other scientists acknowledged its hard to make the case for robust monitoring with the public and policymakers, particularly when results can sometimes show little, if any, changes. But not doing it can carry high costs as well, Mazzotti said. The reason we are restoring the Everglades is that when we tried to manage it in previous years, there was no monitoring,he said.

Dispute over tile work up in the airIts a bird, its a plane its a disgruntled customer.Throughout the Upper Keys and up into Homestead, people were talking last week about yellow banner planes the type typically seen advertising bar specials at the beach towing a sign criticizing a local tile installer for alleged shoddy work, poor customer service and not refunding money.The planes flew their messages for several days. Among those who took notice were Sharon and David Berman the owners of the targeted business, Oceanside Tile & Granite, mile marker 103.1.Theyve since hired Tavernier attorney Nicholas Mulick, who said he is filing a libel lawsuit against Bob Benyo, owner of Aerial Banners Inc., seeking compensatory and punitive damages.Their business is all but out of existence all because of the malicious act of one man, Mulick said Thursday.The first reports of the planes started coming into this newspaper on Sept. 8. One banner read Oceanside Tile & Granite = Shoddy Work & Dishonored Contract. The other read, Oceanside Tile & Granite Walked Off My Job & Kept My $$.Benyo said he hired Oceanside Tile & Granite to install tile on his 700-squarefoot workshop at his Venetian Shores house, which he bought three months ago. He said over the course of six weeks, Oceanside crews continued to do the job wrong, including pouring a concrete floor that Benyo didnt want, installing crooked tiles and showing up to work as late as 6 p.m.Benyo also said that weeks would go by without any work being done.He said he finally got fed up and demanded the company tear out the work it had completed and start over, or refund him the money he paid so far, which he said is about $7,000. When he hadnt heard back from the Bermans, Benyo said, he decided to launch his planes.The sky is one of the last places where you can speak your mind. Its the last place you truly have freedom of speech, Benyo said.Each flight cost about $1,000, said Benyo, who has owned Aerial Banners for 18 years. He said if the money he paid Oceanside Tile & Granite is refunded, he will fly a retraction banner.If he pays me, Ill fly a sign that says hes got a happy customer, Benyo said.Mulick said the entire job was about $7,000, but Benyo paid only about $4,300. He maintains Oceanside did a proper job, but Benyo couldnt be satisfied.This is a dispute about how the work was done. It had nothing to do with shoddy work. Mr. Benyo decided it was going to be his way or no way at all, Mulick said. You dont do everything you can to destroy the reputation of a local, small business over a $4,300 dispute, Mulick said. Hes spent more money so far destroying my clientslife and business than the entire job was worth. And the stupidest thing hes done so far was to accuse my client of a crime.Attorney sues over aerial protest bannerBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOCommission tables license lawCity Attorney Tom Wright said Thursday that reversing a rule against real estate agents operating out of private homes would turn Key Colony Beach into Key Colony Business Mall. But denying Realtor Maria Flood the right to operate her business from home is forcing the City Commission to re-examine the validity of a number of commercial licenses. City Building Official Ed Borysiewicz last week denied Floods application because of a longstanding city rule against real estate businesses in residential areas. But her husband, Steven, complained to the commission Thursday that the city provides numerous businesses with that right. He pointed to two general contracting businesses-Ed Sims Development and Island Design Build and Remodeling-that he claimed regularly park heavy-duty trucks and trailers full of equipment on their property. My intention is not to make a complaint, Flood said. Im just trying to use it as an example. If you can license a business like this, wheres the problem licensing a desk for a real estate broker. There are numerous commercial licenses on Key Colony Beach, but only 10 exist in residential areas. That includes four contractors, an accountant, a mobile computer repair business and a land surveying business, among others. City Attorney Tom Wright told the commission that the rule against real estate businesses in residential areas goes back or 16 years. We had a hearing before the code board. The city has taken this position for many years that residential zoning is not for real estate offices, he said. If we open the gates and say, Fine put up your sign, Im more concerned with where do we draw the line.Wright warned the commission that it was on its own if it goes against his legal advice. Every other Realtor is going to want their office there, too, he said. But Commissioner Mary Schmidt argued that the rain falls on everyone, and that the same rules should apply to all home occupation licenses. Why do we have these home occupation licenses to begin with? We probably shouldnt if its a residential area, she said. The commission unanimously approved a motion to table the matter until at least the second meeting in October so board members can prepare for the discussion. The meeting is scheduled for Oct. 27 at 9:30 a.m. Itll give us time to think about it rather than making a hasty decision, Mayor Ron Sutton told the Keynoter .Attorney says ban in place past 15-16 yearsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACH EVERGLADES Keynoter photo by KEVINWADLOWFresh water filters through the Everglades before entering Florida Bay.By CURTIS MORGANCMorgan@MiamiHerald.com

Story 3B Turtle tale Save-A-Turtle hosts biologist Jim Gamlin, author of A Home for Nickel, Story 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Power running game proves not enough in the endTwice in the fourth quarter of Isand Christians sixman football home opener, the Eagles pushed deep into Oasis Christian territory. Both drives came up empty, leaving the Eagles with a 40-30 loss in a game they led by four points at the start of the final period. The game film wasnt pretty, Eagle head coach Bruce Gendron said Monday. There were a lot of missed tackles. Now [ICS defenders] know arm tackles dont get it done. Oasis Christian (3-1) overcame an early ICS lead to grab a three-point edge at halftime, then returned the second-half opening kickoff 70 yards to go up 27-18. Powered by the running of Ranger Gilliland and Shaka Smith who each ran for 216 yards on the 80-yard-long, six-man field the Eagles answered with a pair of scores in the third. Smith, a swift seventhgrader, escaped for a 32-yard gain on a 65-yard drive that ended with his 9-yard touchdown run. Oasis was moving quickly downfield on the following possession when lineman Dylan Ayres stripped the ball from an Oasis runner, with Eagle Phil Resillez making the recovery. ASmith 27-yard run set up a 13-yard touchdown pass, from quarterback Matt Cavanagh to Smith, that gave the Eagles a 30-28 lead. As the third quarter ended, linebacker Gilliland stopped a Shark runner for no gain on fourth down, ending an Oasis push. But a lean roster and the humid afternoon began to wear on the Eagles. Island Christian wound up punting from its own 6-yard line. The Sharks returned the ball to the 12 and scored on a 7-yard run to regain the lead at 34-30 with 8:30 left. Bruising runs of 20 and 23 yards by Gilliland moved the Eagles to a first-and-goal at the Oasis 6, but ICS fumbled the ball away in the end zone. The Sharks ripped off plays of 20, 13, 10 and 19 yards to score again for a 4030 edge with 2:35 left. In the wide-open six-man game, quick comebacks are highly possible. Gilliland started the last push by recovering an Oasis fumble at midfield. He ran for 10 yards on first down. Cavanagh then hit tall receiver Kadian Carter for an apparent 33-yard touchdown pass, but an illegal downfield block erased the play, effectively ending the game. Oasis had enough kids to swap out on offense and defense, Gendron said, but weve got to play with more intensity. We were lackluster at times Saturday. The Eagles opened the game with two first-quarter scores, on 16and 8-yard runs by Smith, who scored four of the five Eagle touchdowns. Oasis came back with two second-quarter touchdowns to lead, 21-12.

Try weed lines in waterdeeper than 300 feet to catch dolphinThe dolphin and wahoo bite offshore remains excellent, and I sure hope youre getting out there to enjoy it. Most of the dolphin are schoolie size, but there are plenty of gaffers mixed in, with the largest fish at 20 to 25 pounds. While youre cruising the weed lines for dolphin, keep an eye out for tripletail, which have been abundant. The wahoo seem to be everywhere from the reef line out to the weed lines. Most are in the 5to 15-pound class excellent table fare. These fish have all been taking a wide variety of baits and lures, either trolled, pitched or chunked. I realize thats just about every technique used in dolphin fishing, but all three are working equally well. My recommendation is to begin trolling the first weed line you find in water deeper than 300 feet. Troll it for about a mile. If nothing hits your baits, head further offshore to the next weed line and repeat the process. Sooner or later, youll find life on one of the weed lines either baitfish or your target species. If youd like some sushi with your dolphin or wahoo dinner, the humps are still producing plenty of blackfin tuna.

Playing with Key West is helping us out because we get to see good golf, said Freeman, whose team played tri-meets with the Conchs and Trinity Prep last Friday and Saturday, just after the Dolphins and Conchs had been in another tri-meet with Ransom Everglades last Wednesday. In Saturdays match at the Key West Golf Club, the Conchs shot 160 to win. Marathon was third with 199 11 strokes behind Palmer Trinity. Evan DeRoche led the Conchs with a par-35 and was followed by Nick Patrocky and A.J. Davila, who each shot 41, and Joseph Arazi, who shot 43. Kyle Pierce led Marathon with a 44, ahead of Sean Roussin (a season-low 47), Kevin McKeon (51) and Jake Logan (57). The Conchs also won Friday at the Sombrero Country Club with 154.

The Dolphins were looking forward to a week off after playing late Tuesday against Terra and Gables high schools at the Miccosukee Country Club in Miami.Fix our gameFrom Golf,1BBeckford rushes for 190 yardsMother Nature must have noticed the Marathon High School football team getting off to a slow start Saturday afternoon. District rival Archbishop Curley scored from 65 yards out on its first offensive play and was about to do so again, when players were called off the field because of lightning strikes in the area. One hour and 45 minutes later, a different Dolphins squad took the field. It gave us a chance to regroup and wake up, coach Lance Martin said. They run a lot of motion and we emphasized you cant follow the motion. Once we got that straightened out and stayed home we were able to shut them down. Curley finished that second drive off with a fiveyard touchdown run, but it would be their last points until late in the fourth quarter. In between, the Dolphins rattled off 30 unanswered points and earned a 30-18 win over the Knights. The Dolphins answered Curleys touchdown with a 14-play drive of its own. Yoniel Esquirol capped it off with a two-yard run to make it 12-7. Marathon forced a punt on Curleys ensuing drive, but the Knights made a bad snap and Ramarlo Robertson tackled the punter in the end zone for a safety to make it 12-9. The Dolphins continued to play well defensively, forcing two Curley fumbles before senior Trevelle Beckford scored on 15-yard run to give Marathon its first lead of the game, 16-12. Ian Nuzzo finished with three tackles, one for a loss and had a fumble recovery. Robertson also had three tackles, with one for a loss, a forced fumble, fumble recovery and safety. Senior Tommy Dodamead intercepted a pass just before halftime and the Dolphins took the lead into half time. He finished with four tackles, including one for a loss. The Dolphins forced a punt after the half and another bad snap by Curley gave them good starting field position. Beckford capped off a 32-yard drive with a 14-yard touchdown giving Marathon a 23-12 lead. Beckford would finish the game with 190 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries, while Esquirol had 57 yards and a score on 11 runs. Dodamead threw an 11yard touchdown to Robertson in the fourth quarter that put the game out of reach at 30-12. Dodamead was 6-for-8 passing for 49 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Curley notched another 65-yard touchdown run against Marathons reserves, but the starters returned to close out the game. Marathon is scheduled to host Ransom Everglades School Friday at 7:30 p.m. in another district contest.Dolphins beat tough Curley squad 30-18FOOTBALLweek. However, a great number of small sharks are there as well and are attacking the baits meant for the muttons. So, be sure to take plenty of live and dead baits and hooks with you. On the deeper wrecks, the kingfish and amberjack populations are increasing as we get into fall. If you can find an area on the reef lacking sharks, youre certain to put together a good catch of yellowtail snapper in the 16to 20-inch range. Were beginning to see better size yellowtails in the mid-depth ranges from 60 to 75 feet. As the waters continue to cool, these larger fish will move to more shallow areas. There are also black grouper mixing it up on the reef. The mangrove snapper bite is waning on the patch reefs as these fish relocate to the bay and gulf waters. Ive noticed a definite increase in the numbers and size of the mangroves around the banks and bayside wrecks. All variety of baits work, with the largest fish taken on small live pinfish or pilchards.The weeks bestRandy and Linda, from South Carolina, had such a successful trip with Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island Lure Charters, that they had to purchase a second cooler to take all their fish home! It was Lindas first offshore trip, and the pair caught dolphin, wahoo and blackfin tuna. Yzenas fishes out of Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon. The crew at Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon was busy last week aboard the Papa Pips Bob Skeen and Cindee Bowen, from Hurricane WV, limited out on snapper in a half-day trip to the reef. And, a group of anglers from Bellrose NY caught 50 dolphin, three wahoo and a tripletail all before noon. The SeaSquared spent the week fishing for sharks. The Pittham family came all the way from England, and the Orton family traveled from Utah to match wits with these crafty fish. Also, David Wilcher and Richard Scudder spent a day snapper fishing followed by shark fishing...what we call Dinner and a Show. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Reel Lucky Charters at Turtle Kraals in Key West, put his anglers on yellowtail snapper and sharks on the reef edge. And remember, Capt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Friday, Sep. 29, at the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon.

On Sunday, the under-15 Tarpons faced third place Jupiter Sting. The first half was tight but the first score came in the 28th minute with Rodamer scoring on a breakaway from a Durkin pass. One minute later, Bruland passed to Rodamer, who placed to Brandi Spalten who scored. That made it 2-0. After halftime, nine minutes into play, the Tarpons put the game away with another combination of Jackie Clairmont to Bruland, crossing to Rodamer for the score. Also on Sunday, the under-17 girls played a Homestead club team made up of Key West players. Key West led at halftime 2-1, but they were without their usual goalkeeper and the Tarpons took advantage to score three second-half goals, finishing with a 4-3 victory. Tarpons put game awayFrom Soccer,1BBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Canes halfback Garcia sprints for75-yard touchdown thrillHome field never looked so good for the Coral Shores Hurricanes. We are ecstatic to be off the road, head football coach Ed Holly said Monday, after consecutive weeks of traveling crossstate to play Naples teams. Neither 320-mile road trip resulted in a win, with Coral Shores dropping a 246 decision to Community School of Naples on Friday. It was a good-quality football experience going up there for a playoff-type atmosphere both times, Holly said. I know well learn from it and continue to improve in our final six games. Coral Shores (2-2) will play Berean Christian (0-4) of West Palm Beach at 7:30 p.m. Friday at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium. Where First Baptist Academy of Naples used a powerhouse run game to grind out a 35-14 win over the Canes Sept. 16, Community (2-2) went over the top with an effective aerial game. The Hurricane defense improved tremendously against the run, Holly said, but it was the first time our guys saw that kind of explosive passing attack. Now we have to put a full game together, the coach said. Coral Shores stopped Communitys first drive but the Seahawks nailed a 26yard field goal. AHurricane fumble on the next possession put Community in gear at the Cane 15-yard line, leading to 12-yard scoring pass. The Seahawks struck again just before halftime, capping a quick 55-yard drive with a 24-yard touchdown throw. The Canesoffense struggled to stay consistent before senior halfback Andrew Garcia escaped for a 75-yard touchdown sprint in the fourth quarter. For the most part, we self-destructed on our drives, Holly said. It was more shooting ourselves in the foot than anything [Community] did to us. We could move the ball but wed get a penalty or a fumbled snap, he said. Youve got to come back from that. Anybody can make a mistake but being a high-character guy means you dont make the same mistake twice. Coral Shores rushed for more than 150 yards, most of it from Dakota Roberts and Garcia. Coral Shoresdefense limited the Seahawks to 80 rushing yards, but allowed 168 passing yards on a 12of-24 night by quarterback Andrew Tomaini. They like to pitch and catch, Holly said, and executed it very well. Inside linebacker Henry Rroshi helped anchor the improved Cane defense against Seahawk runners. It was a night-and-day difference from the First Baptist game, Holly said. Now we need to do the same against the pass, he said. It takes small steps to get back where Coral Shores needs to be in terms of our tradition and what the community expects of us. Berean Christian is coming off a 55-12 loss to Masters Academy. It was the first game this fall where the Bulldogs scored more than one touchdown. Berean revived its dormant football program in 2008 thanks to a generous contribution from school graduate and former football player Daniel Whitney better known as popular comedian Larry the Cable Guy.But Shores loses 24-6 to Naples passing attackFOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Celebrating Women in Business National Women in Business Week October17th 21st KEYS WIDE COVERAGEPublications: Florida Keys Keynoter Key West Keynoter Wednesday, October19th The Reporter Friday, October21st also on ourWebsite atCall oremail Laura Preston Lpreston@keynoter.com305-743-5551 Deadline: Monday, October10th at 5PM Put yourBusiness in the Spotlight!

This comes on the heels of a special public service advisory issued by the Bahamian government, warning of heightened dengue activity on New Providence Island. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Bahamian Healthy Ministry has reported more than 100 cases of the mosquito-borne illness every day since July. As a result, the U.S. Embassy in Nassau has also issued an advisory for U.S. citizens in the Bahamas. And, the all clear so far report from Monroe County Health comes just days after Miami-Dade County Health officials reported the first locally-acquired case of dengue fever there in more than 50 years. Dr. Fermin Leguen, chief epidemiologist for the Miami-Dade Health Department, said the Miami patient had not traveled outside Miami-Dade County for more than two weeks before he was hospitalized. Health officials said they dont know where the man acquired the disease, but noted it was a different strain from the one that caused 57 cases in Key West and one in Broward County. The fact that the new case was contracted locally means it apparently was the result of a bite of a mosquito that had bitten another Dade resident who was infected, health officials said. The disease does not pass from mosquito to mosquito The Miami-Dade patient was briefly hospitalized, but has fully recovered, according to Lillian Rivera, administrator of the Miami-Dade Health Dept. Monroe County health officials report 93 confirmed cases of dengue since the disease was first reported in the summer of 2009. Awidespread public information campaign, launched last year, combines efforts of the health department and Florida Mosquito Control District with business and civic partners spreading the word about prevention. Keys residents are reminded about making sure screens on windows and doors are free of holes where mosquitoes can gain entry. Eliminating breeding places around homes and businesses also reduces the chances of dengue spreading. This means removing anything that holds water after rains, prime places for mosquitoes to breed. Plant pots, pet dishes, birdbaths and trash containers should be checked and emptied. Mosquitoes are most active in the early evening. Remember to wear long sleeves and pants and use mosquito repellant containing 20-30 percent DEETas the active ingredient on exposed skin or clothing. The Key West Dengue Fever Index tracks the number of inspections made in the city along with positive identifications of aedes Aegypti mosquitoes, which are known carriers of dengue. For the week of Sept. 1521, the district reported 650 inspections with 73 positive identifications of aedes Aegypti. Thats down from 117 positive IDs the previous week.

The program is designed to help children attain and maintain a healthy weight and body size and become more active and fit. Many children and adolescents who are overweight are not physically ill, said James Cordell, Wellness Center manager. However, being overweight puts them at risk for more serious longterm health issues, such as diabetes and heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea, as well as psychosocial difficulties such as peer teasing and depression. We believe this program, which includes group exercises for children and nutritional consultation for children and parents, will help improve childrens overall health.

Clinic staff says that since it opened, more than 7,300 patients have been seen by the clinics associated doctors and health-care providers providing more than $20 million in medical services. And just in the first quarter of 2011 alone, the staff says, Baptist Health South Florida and Mariners Hospital provided $1,232,576 in free services and the clinic has provided $38,700 in free medications.It provides free care in the Upper KeysKeynoter StaffHEALTH CARE Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWThe Good Health Clinic is at mile marker 91.5 oceanside in Tavernier.LIVING BRIEFSDonors sought for read-a-thonStudents at Stanley Switlik Elementary School are participating in a schoolwide read-a-thon on Oct. 7 to raise money for their classrooms, and donors are sought for sponsorships.

Her face and lips swollen from Portuguese man owar stings, the marathon swimmer tried to remain positive about all she had accomplished in two years of training for record-setting attempts at a Cuba-Florida swim. The disappointment at giving up on her dream, though, was as raw as the welts left by the jellyfish-like creatures long, stinging tentacles Its going to hurt my pride so bad when someone swims across that thing, and it wasnt me, the Los Angeles athlete told friends who greeted her boat, Sunluver at a Key West marina Sunday night. Nyad quit after 40 hours swimming past sharks, barracudas and men owar in the waters between Cuba and the Florida Keys. She could have fought through bad weather or medical problems, she said, but her medics said more man owar stings might have killed her. Its such a bitter pill. I am so capable of that swim. Thats the end, though Nyad said. Wearing a white bathrobe, the 62-year-old pushed up the sleeves to show a long, red, cross-shaped welt on her right forearm. Those damned jellyfish, she said. Nyad said she had been in even better shape than when she attempted the same swim last month. She received oxygen and a steroid shot from her doctors while treading water as she recovered from the stings. She tried to fend off more stings by wearing long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and a full facial mask, with just her hands, feet and lips exposed. Her lips were stung, and Nyad joked that her swollen mouth rivaled actress Angelina Jolies famous pout. The man owar tentacles swept across her like something out of a sci-fi movie, she said. She kept swimming even as she felt paralysis stiffening her back, she said, because visions of Florida kept her going. Im only human and Im allowed to say Im mad that it turned out this way, Im very disappointed, she said. When you want something, you picture it, and I pictured seeing that Florida coast. The lights, the palm trees, I pictured it for so long. Go back to 1978, I pictured it a long time, Nyad continued. Its hard to let go of, but I can, and I will. Im not going to call you guys and say Im doing it again. Mainly because of the way it ended. Nyad ended her swim after swimming 130,098 strokes over 40 hours and 67 miles, according to her website. Throughout the swim, her team posted her progress on her blog, Facebook and Twitter. Dozens of well-wishers posted responses, calling Nyad an inspiration even after she quit swimming. Nyad said her team told her, These stings are cumulative. What makes you think youll get through dusk again? Theyre everywhere. Late Sunday morning, she heeded the warnings of experts who told her not to continue. She told The Associated Press earlier Sunday that she was in the best shape of her life but was blinded by the stings. You go into convulsions, your spine feels paralyzed. Ive had kidney stones. Nothing compares to the pain, Nyad said, wearing loose bandages and rehydrating with water and juice on her boat. It just took the life force out of me. I trained this hard for this big dream I had for so many years, and to think these stupid little Portuguese man o war take it down, Nyad said. Associated Press writer Kelli Kennedy in Miami contributed to this report.Tells reporters: Its such a bitter pillBy JENNIFER KAYAssociated PressKEY WEST Islamorada Office Now OpenDarel D.
