WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,OCTOBER 12,2011 VOLUME 58,NO.82 25 CENTS Back in prison A judge hands down a two-year sentence to an admitted killer acquitted of a Florida Keys pot charge.Story, 3A Coffee to go A Marathon father and daughter say their new drive-through coffee shop is everything theyd hoped.Story, 5A Boat tragedy could have ended worseDuck Key charter captain David Jensens customers were gung ho to go fishing over the weekend. Good thing because if not, the fate of a South Florida family of eight, whose 22-foot Wellcraft vessel overturned in choppy seas Saturday afternoon, would have likely turned out far more tragic. As it is, one person, a grandmother, died.Jensen told the Keynoter he almost always leaves his Hawks Cay Marina dock at 7 a.m., but weather pushed the group of friends from Virginia, New York, Missouri and elsewhere back an hour on Sunday. So the Snapshot left the dock late.We headed out late to go fishing because [the weather was bad] in the morning. We headed to a bait spot and I saw something off in the distance, he said. When I got closer, I saw someone waving their arms. I got closer and there were three people on board. We threw life jackets to the people. Jensen had spotted the three men with no life jackets clinging to their capsized boat near the Tennessee Reef Lighthouse off Long Key. Theyd been in the water since noon roughly 20 hours the day before. Gone was 79-year-old Zaida San Jurjo Gonzalez of Hialeah, who went missing during the night. Her body has not been found. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Robert Dube said Gonzalez either owns or rents a home in Layton and that the family launched from there. The family was fishing at the Tennessee Reef Lighthouse around three miles offshore in rough seas when the boat took on water.By most accounts, they shouldnt have been out on the water in the severe weather that hit the Keys on Saturday, especially with eight people on a 22-foot boat.They took a wave over the stern. Three women and the 4-year-old girl had life jackets on, but the three males and 79-year-old victim did not. It happened so fast, Dube said. Dube said the women and 4-year-old child were swept away from the boat almost immediately after it capsized. But the men were able to hold onto it.

The prices will be up more than in previous years and the supply will definitely be up.Last season, stone crab went for as high as $9 per pound (prices vary depending on the size of the claw), up some $3 from the previous year. About 900 fishermen harvest stone crab in the Keys, and around 65 percent of all stone crab harvested statewide the annual average is 3.2 million pounds comes from Monroe County waters. Just one claw is harvested from each crab, then the crab is thrown back so it can regenerate the claw, which takes about a year. Kelly says thats why its a very sustainable fishery, because the animals arent killed. You turn the crab so the crab actually releases the claw; you dont actually pull them off. Its a downward action; the pressure actually results in the crab releasing it; it rejects the claw. However, trap robbing is always a big problem, just as it is for lobstermen, the majority of whom also harvest stone crab For lobster the season started Aug. 6 and runs through March Kelly said, Weve had ongoing problems with trap theft and weve been working with [the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission] on hot spots. We have some areas where the theft rate is 30 percent. Traditionally, were talking 8 to 10 percent. Thats about half a million lobster, and with todaysKeys account for majority of the harvestFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSKeynoter StaffSee Stone crab,3ASee Capsize,2A Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYSworn into office on Tuesday at Old City Hall are (from left) Key West Mayor Craig Cates and commissioners Teri Johnston and Tony Yaniz.Cates and Yaniz defeated challengers in the Oct.4 election,while Johnston and Mark Rossi were re-elected unopposed.Rossi didnt attend Tuesdays ceremony.SWORN IN Zip-line course gets oppositionAgroup of Keys residents has formed a coalition, Keep Crane Point Natural, bent on stopping Crane Point Hammock in Marathon from building a zip-line course.We are basically advocates to keep Crane Point natural. In other words, not with a zip line intruding with the wildlife, butterflies and birds. Were going to lobby [the state] against putting it in, Cudjoe Key resident Deborah Curlee said.Zip lines are basically cables strung from platform to platform. Riders attached to them move to each platform through a pulley system. Courses are popular in the Caribbean, Hawaii and other tourist destinations around the globe. Curlee is one of a handful of people to speak against the idea at recent City Council meetings. The council has applied for $735,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding through the state Department of Community Affairs now part of the Department of Economic Opportunity to help build the $1.1 million course.Keep Crane Point Naturals main point of contention is the harm it says a zip line would do to the threatened whitecrowned pigeon. Kenneth Meyer, executive director of the Avian Research and Conservation Institute in Gainesville, wrote a Sept. 26 letter to the City Council to that effect.The proposed zip-line ...New group says threatened bird would be harmedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPrincipal out at new high schoolAfter a hastily called weekend meeting of the Key West Collegiate School board, Principal Debra Remsen is out as the charter school chief just eight weeks after the small high school opened its doors. Details were few on Tuesday and messages left at the school at Florida Keys Community College were not returned, but Monroe County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara confirmed the vote was for resignation or suspension of the principal. They have advertised for a new principal position at the school. Charter schools, although independent of the district in terms of daily operations, receive their funding through the district and are required to meet state reporting standards for curriculum, testing, certification and the like. The Collegiate School has 42 students in grades nine through 12. Jara said he spoke to the schools board last week about the qualifications usually associated with principals in the district. We need certain certifications for our traditional schools; at charter schools, its recommended but not a requirement. I think [board members] are questioning that.He added that members of his staff, including Executive Director of Operations Theresa Axford, visited the StockCharter board relieves Remsen of top jobBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Principal,2ASee Zip line,2ANo parking reliefDespite pleas to stop, the U.S.Postal Service will continue towing cars from its Key West lot.Story, 2ALobster chargesA Miami man faces several charges after being found with nearly 300 illegal lobster in Layton.Story, 3A
Despite prodding from the Key West and Monroe County mayors, and input from U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, it appears that towing from the main post office on Whitehead Street in Key West will continue.In the past two weeks, Key West Mayor Craig Cates and Heather Carruthers, the mayor of Monroe County, have asked Ros-Lehtinen to intervene, but that looks like its to no avail.Cars are often towed from the lot after the office is closed often creating troublesome and expensive situations that, when involving tourists, can leave a bad impression of the Southernmost City.U.S. Postal Service spokesman Earl Artis said after-hours parking has spawned numerous complaints from customers, as the lobby is open 24 hours, giving access to boxes and an automated postage machine.There are a dozen signs in English, Spanish and Creole notifying the public that parking is for postal customers conducting business at the post office, and the minimum towing fee is $235, Artis wrote in an e-mail.There are ample signs in the lot; however, some of them list the minimum towing fee as $135. Arnolds Towing patrols the lot. Cates called it a big problem. Therere a lot of upset people out there. Artis gave this suggestion: One other key point: The Postal Service has no input as to what the towing service charges, and we receive no revenue from towing fees. If Mayor Cates wants lower towing fees, perhaps the mayor and the city commissioners could consider voting to limit the fees allowed.Last year, Cates sponsored a city law designed to set maximum fees and limit add-on charges such as for storage; it went nowhere. Cates said the ordinance would be back up for consideration by the Key West City Commission in coming weeks.That just shows how important it is that I pass my towing ordinance to regulate the unfair prices the tow companies charge, Cates said of Artisstatement.Ros-Lehtinen weighed in with an Oct. 4 letter to Juan Nadal, manager of consumer issues for the Postal Services South Florida district.I hope that you can work out a satisfactory arrangement with the county and the city on this subject, consistent with all applicable rules and regulations, she wrote.

He said she had died in the middle of the night and he had to let her go, he said. The other two men refused to let go of their boat because they couldnt swim, Jensen said. One of his customers jumped in the water and helped the two men aboard Jensens 35foot SeaVee. Theyd put a rope off the back for the men to grab. Jensen said one of the men told him about the missing women and child and that he immediately called the U.S. Coast Guard and set out looking for them on his own. The Coast Guard located the remaining four and Jensen met the Coast Guard crew to transfer the three men. The seven survivors were taken to Fishermens Community Hospital for injuries including exhaustion, jellyfish stings and hypothermia. They are:Jorge Alejo Gonzalez, 62, of Royal Palm Beach.Tomasa Torres Gonzalez, 57, of Royal Palm Beach.Jose Miguel De Armas, 40, of Royal Palm Beach.Yunisleidy Lima Tejada, 25, of Royal Palm Beach.Fabiana De Armas Lima, 4, of Royal Palm Beach.Elena G.

I know there are some things that are in question, Jara said, adding the school was not in line to fill some requirements.Were kind of getting involved with our staff to make sure theyre up following statutes because we obviously dont want to jeopardize the situation with the students earning credit.I think theyre just new to this. Its just a personnel matter. Its a very sensitive situation, if you will. Their expertise may be limited so the district is involved in supporting them. We have limited resources, as well, and were pulling staff to go there. This year saw the opening of two new charter schools in the Florida Keys and the expansion of two others. That means of the more than 8,000 students served by the School District, around 12 percent of them, more than 900 students, attend one of the six charters. The shift in enrollment from traditional schools and propagation of charter schools is not unique to the Keys; school districts statewide have received nearly 40 percent more charter applications this year than the previous year, topping more than 340 requests.Principal oustedFrom Principal,1A would compromise the ecological integrity of one of the largest remaining stands of hardwood hammock, he wrote. In particular, Crane Point Hammock is a vitally important feeding area for white-crowned pigeons. Crane Point Operations Manager John Henderson said he agrees with much of Meyers letter, but said the potential layout of the course was changed several times to reduce environmental impacts. They said the wires might be obstructions, but theres power lines running the length of this property and those havent proven to be an impediment, he said. The pigeons feed here and were putting the platforms as far away from their feeding ground as possible. But a prepared statement from the group, comprising about a dozen people, says the hammock at mile marker 50 bayside is important to other migratory birds, dwindling populations of butterflies, other invertebrates and native plants. We dont understand how the board of Crane Point can so easily dismiss the effect of noise and intrusion made by zip-liners on resident wildlife, as well as the impact of the construction of everything associated with the zip line, said Marathon resident Beverly Welber. We understand that Crane Point faces serious financial challenges but would urge them to look for other ways to raise the needed capital.In addition, Curlee said the group is concerned with the councils commitment to secure $735,000 in state funding for the course. The residents are having concern because the city of Marathon [could] have to pay back the money, she said.The state can award $35,000 for each job created that lasts at least a year. Henderson says Crane Point plans to hire 21 fulltime employees for the zip line and that it would secure a line of credit to repay the state for up to four jobs ($140,000).For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com.Plan bashedFrom Zip line,1A Scott seeks delay on Glades cleanupAn important deadline in Everglades restoration efforts already pushed back four years would be postponed another six years under a proposal made Thursday by Gov. Rick Scott.In a meeting in Washington with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Scott laid out a plan to put off a deadline to reduce the amount of phosphorous flowing in the Everglades to 10 parts per billion. The deadline was originally set for next year but was put off until 2016. Under the governors proposal, the state would have until 2022. That change would require the approval of U.S. District Court Judge Alan Gold, who has already expressed dissatisfaction with Floridas restoration efforts.In an April ruling, he said the state has not been true stewards of protecting the Everglades in recent years. Reducing phosphorous levels requires building 22,000 acres of stormwater treatment areas to filter water flowing southward.The proposed delay was not met with applause by environmentalists. David Guest of Earthjustice, one of the environmental groups that has sued the state over the Everglades, was blunt in his assessment: This is terrible.But Scott insisted Florida remains steadfast in its commitment to restoring Americas Everglades. In a statement, the Republican governor also said his plan is a strategy that puts the ecosystem first and prevents costly, ongoing litigation from derailing our mutual progress toward restoration.Associated PressEVERGLADESCounty to allocate TDC fundingThe Monroe County Commission is slated to hand out roughly $1.9 million next week in Tourist Development Council money for event funding and infrastructure projects.

KEYSNET.COM Key West gets most money from bed tax
Wednesday,October 12,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com prices, thats about $3.5 million, $4 million in direct losses to our fishermen.Kelly said stone-crab [losses] can run high, too, on average of about 10 or 12 percent, 385,000 pounds stolen. With an average price of $8.75 a pound, thats another $3 million right there.Traditionally, the season heats up as the temperatures cool down. We actually see price increases as we get into cold weather, Kelly said. The reason is the warmer water in the Keys produces a crab that lets the meat more easily separate from the shell as opposed to crabs harvested from mainland waters. Claws must be at least 2.75 inches long to be harvested; claws cannot be taken from egg-bearing females. The season lasts until May 16.Thefts hurtFrom Stone crab,1AMiamian charged with illegal lobsterAMiami man was jailed early Tuesday morning, accused of possessing 274 undersized lobster and other resource-related crimes.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says that about 2:30 a.m., Deputy Anthony ODea from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office spotted a boat with no lights on heading into the Sea Bird Marina at mile marker 69.5 bayside. At the helm was Jorge Vargas, 56. ODea approached the boat as it entered the marina and saw two large mesh bags full of lobster in a cooler on the vessel, FWC Officer Bobby Dube says. The Sheriffs Office called the FWC and Lt. Liz Riesz responded. She found the lobster and charged Vargas with possessing the 274 undersized lobster, as well as possessing 332 wrung tails on the water (lobster have to be whole when still on the water) and possessing nine stone crab claws out of season (the seven-month season starts Saturday). All the charges are misdemeanors.LAYTONKeynoter Staff VARGAS Audit chief questions contractAs contract negotiations continue with unionized Monroe County School District members, the chairman of the districts Audit and Finance Committee wants to know if administrators entered into a contract they knowingly couldnt afford. The United Teachers of Monroe represents 408 teachers and 69 school-related personnel such as bus drivers.Athree-year contract deal that integrated performancebased pay for teachers was reached in December. Since then, the district realized the need, and budgeted for, a $9.3 million reduction in expenditures. Alarge portion of those cuts came on the backs of teacher pay. The performance system was put on hold and seven unpaid furlough days not included in the original agreement instituted. In an Oct. 6 e-mail, Audit and Finance Committee Chairman Stuart Kessler questioned Chief Internal Auditor Ken Gentile about the affirmative responsibility for School District employees (senior managers in particular) to advise the School Board ... that the superintendent is providing false or misleading information to the School Board regarding the funding of the proposed collective bargaining agreement. He went on to ask if failure to fulfill that responsibility could prompt disciplinary action and does the information developed to date provide probable cause to engage in a more complete investigation? Gentile described the inquiry as complicated, adding that he would need approval from the Audit Committee, and possibly input from the five-member School Board, to pursue an investigation.The December accord was reached between thenSuperintendent Joseph Burke and then-United Teachers of Monroe President Leon Fowler; in July, Burke took the top spot for the Lee County School District and was replaced in the Keys by Jesus Jara, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott. Fowler is now UTMs business agent and Holly Hummell-Gorman is president.Gentile, echoing repeated statements from School Board Chairman John Dick, said that when questioned, Burke said the money to fund the threeyear deal would come.When these concerns were brought to the superintendent, he said, Well find the money. I think that was a consistent message from Dr. Burke.But with the superintendent gone, theres one level of accountability thats missing, but that doesnt mean its not reviewable. Im not really sure where it goes. Gentile, in response to Kesslers questions, said the districts anti-fraud policy asserts an affirmative responsibility to report such behavior. Regarding an investigation, I am sure there are many sides to this discussion and I would [like] to get input from the other committee members.Acost-out done last year for the three-year switch to the performance model projected $1.2 million the first year, $812,000 the next year and $1 million in the third year. The only guaranteed funding was around $680,000 through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.Kessler:Did officials know its unaffordable?By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSUnion, district rebuilding relationshipAfter six months of onagain, off-again negotiations, representatives of the Monroe County School District and the United Teachers of Monroe described a meeting last week as positive and a move in the right direction. Superintendent Jesus Jara, labor attorney Robert Norton and a team of core administrators met Oct. 5 with union President Holly HummellGorman and business agent Leon Fowler, and staff from the Florida Education Association, a state union umbrella organization. The closed-door session was supposed to precede a round of public bargaining that was ultimately cancelled when the two sides agreed that it would serve no purpose to hold negotiation sessions until the threshold issue is resolved, according to a memo from HummellGorman to the union membership. The basis of two claims of unfair labor practices filed with the state Public Employees Relations Commission and a total of 10 grievances filed directly with Jara, the threshold issue was defined as whether district officials and the fivemember School Board can unilaterally reduce the budget without coming back to the bargaining table.Over the summer, Jara led the district in cutting more than $9 million from the 2011-12 spending plan; included in those cuts, and the source of significant friction with UTM, was a mandate that all schools staff, teachers, administrators and schoolrelated personnel take up to seven unpaid furlough days.They understand that Im being very careful with the money, Jara told the Keynoter Its just a matter of it not being there. The revenues didnt come in as projected and we made the cuts we had to make.Were moving toward a positive resolution. Were trying to build a relationship with the teachersunion. I think the conversation we had ... was a very positive one.Hummell-Gorman echoed that: The outcome of [the Oct. 5] meeting was a positive move towards open and fair negotiations between UTM and the district. It is also our hope that it will facilitate a more transparent process concerning the budgetary issues facing the School District. Monroe County taxpayers and parents deserve to know how their hard earned tax dollars are being spent. There are no future meetings scheduled between the two sides.Recent confab called positive by both sidesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSDascott gets 2 years in state penAformer Lower Keys man has been sentenced to two years in state prison even though he was acquitted of a marijuana charge back in the spring. Thats because Jason Dascott, 32, is an admitted triple killer and had been on probation when he was found with a misdemeanor amount under 20 grams of marijuana at his Big Coppitt Key residence on Feb. 25. At trial on May 24, a jury acquitted him. But Terri Skiles, a Palm Beach County prosecutor, charged him with violating probation he was serving stemming from his involvement in a West Palm Beach triple slaying on Thanksgiving in 1998. Dascotts mere arrest violated the probation, and on Sept. 30, a Palm Beach County judge sentenced him to the two years followed by 10 years of supervised released. He faced life behind bars but Skiles said the two years was a negotiated deal. In the Palm Beach case, Bryan Harrison, 21, Daniel Ketchum, 27, and Charlotte Kenyan, 26, were killed in a drug deal that turned into a robbery. Charged with murder were Dascott, Thomas Thibault, then 23, and John Chamberlain, then 20. Dascott, who pleaded guilty to three counts of seconddegree murder, got 10 years for his testimony against Thibault and Chamberlain, who are serving life with no chance of release. Dascott was released in March 2008 and was on probation until March 13, 2013. His Big Coppitt arrest came when he received 13 pounds of marijuana at his Avenue C home. When an undercover cop delivered the pot after getting a tip from FedEx, he found the other small amount of marijuana in the house.Admitted killer was acquitted in pot caseIN THE COURTS NEWS BRIEFSDOT holds hearing tonight in MarathonThe state Department of Transportation holds its annual Monroe County hearing on its five-year construction plan at 6 tonight at the Marathon Government Center, mile marker 48.5 bayside, in the second-floor meeting chamber. DOTofficials from Miami will be on hand to give a PowerPoint presentation, then answer questions. The five-year plan is not solid, meaning it usually changes based on things such as the availability of money. One thing likely to come up tonight is DOTs commitment or lack thereof to fix the old Seven Mile Bridge, which is in disrepair and closed to motor traffic and fishing. Only pedestrians, bicyclists and skaters are allowed to use the span, built as part of the Florida East Coast Railway more than 100 years ago.Keynoter Staff

EDITORIALReject Scotts grab for moneyLETTERS TO THE EDITORTragedy was avoidableIs this past weekends boating tragedy off Long Key, which resulted in an 80-year-old woman dying, an example of ignorance or criminal neglect? Most residents of the Keys are sure they would not even think of boating on a day like Saturday. Not only were there strong thunderstorms and 40-knot winds, but also many lightning strikes and high waves forecast. All you had to do was look out the window, listen to the constant thunder and see lightning all around you (not to mention the torrential rain). These kinds of incidents make the national news and ruin our reputation and invite knee-jerk boating legislation. Its impossible to regulate when or if an individual can be on the water in his or her own boat no matter what the conditions are. This is the information age, so how could anyone say he or she didnt know about the weather? If a licensed passenger captain took his passengers into harm without any apparent reason, he could be charged with a crime and face jail time. Im sure the U.S. Coast Guard and state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spent many hours and many dollars (our tax dollars) rescuing these people and risking their own lives, as well. I hope someone prosecutes the operator of the vessel that endangered the lives of his family and the lives of his rescuers Sam Nelson MarathonAnimal services lessenedAlmost a year after Monroe County ran Stand Up for Animals out of town in order to award an animal-control contract to Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, lets take a look at the real, measurable results achieved:Thousands of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on failed, indefensible, county maneuvers to freeze funds of a private 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.Alackluster animal shelter open only a fraction of the hours of the Stand Up shelters, providing less service and fewer resources for citizens and animals.Support of one less shelter; there is no longer a spay/neuter clinic or even a shelter on Big Pine Key.No more recognition for volunteers in the Lower Keys who provide selfless hours of service to lost or abandoned animals.Alienation of a broad donor base supporting animal causes.No more continuing education for staff, volunteers, citizens and other agencies in the Keys.No more organized Saturday morning bridge walks by volunteers for the well being and socialization of shelter dogs.No more no-kill shelter for Key West and the Lower/Middle Keys. Way to go, county commissioners, sacrifice the taxpayers and animals because of some bizarre vendetta against Stand Up for Animals. Those who value the lives of animals will certainly have an opportunity to express their outrage in the next election. Sherri Reneau Cudjoe KeyInfo hard to come byI thought the three schools-related articles in your Oct. 5 edition were all well researched and well written. Kevin Wadlows piece on expenses related to traveling sports teams was particularly interesting. Obviously, his sources are better than mine. In response to an inquiry by a citizen, I had asked for information from the Monroe County School District about the costs to bring teams to Monroe County. As a member of the districts Audit and Finance Committee, I am required to present my questions through a formal policy. That is, I direct any of my questions to the internal auditor who, in turn, is expected to obtain answers from the appropriate district source. My request for data about expenditures for sports travel has gone unanswered and I am unable to reply to the citizen who requested my assistance. I wish that I could say that this was an exception. However, ignoring or avoiding my questions has become the norm. At the September meeting of the Audit and Finance Committee, I was castigated by another committee member for raising too many issues and asking too many questions, that I was overburdening the internal auditor. The other members of the committee and the internal auditor expressed their assent with that critique by saying nothing. Apparently, they agreed that I was too often poking my nose where it did not belong, that I was, in my words, whipping the internal auditor like a rented mule. The School Board planned a workshop to discuss a revised charter for the Audit and Finance Committee. As Sean Kinney reported, perhaps the most important aspect of the charter rewrite concerns communications and what committee members can say and to whom they can say it. All communications are to be in the best interests of the School District. As it is becoming more and more difficult, if not impossible, for me to ask questions or raise issues, I am gratified that your reporters are not inhibited by any policy or procedures. I urge them to continue their quality reporting on all of the issues facing the School District and to not stop until they have answers to all of their questions. Larry Murray Big Pine Key Editors note: The workshop on Audit and Finance Committee communications was scheduled for Tuesday, the results of which were too late for todays paper.Spider comes throughThanks once more to Capt. Spider Branch for hosting the Casting for Charity event at the 7 Mile Marina on Sept. 22 that benefited the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter Inc. The event raised $96 that will prove helpful in meeting special needs for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and their children.The Domestic Abuse Shelter being placed in the regular rotation of organizations that benefit from the Capt. Spiders generosity is much appreciated.Venita Garvin Valdez, CEO Monroe County Domestic Abuse ShelterClean and go greenThe more women clean, the higher their chance for breast cancer, according to two studies recently conducted by the Silent Spring Institute. The Journal of Environmental Health also found that women who use ordinary cleaning products are two times more likely to develop breast cancer than women who used a natural cleaning approach. For the many housekeepers who clean lodging accommodations in the Keys, the use and inhalation of household chemicals is a daily part of life. The extent of their exposure compared to the average person is multiplied by the number of hours they spend elbow-deep in toxic cleaners daily. All-purpose cleaners often contain ammonia, a strong irritant that has been linked to liver and kidney damage. Bleach, a powerful oxidizer, has fumes that can burn the skin, eyes and lungs, and is used in many cleaning products. Air fresheners create volatile organic chemicals indoors and are linked to health problems in infants and depression in women. The housekeeping staff at the Westwinds Inn in Key West is among a handful of local businesses breaking the chemical cleaner habit. During a recent Green Living and Energy Education green-business workshop, the staff was introduced to safe, homemade, natural products that are easy to use and effective. Costing less than half the price of commercial products, the new cleaners include vinegar, baking soda, Castile liquid soap, tea tree oil, hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice. With these basic ingredients, windows, tubs, floors, ovens, carpeting and other surfaces can be cleaned safely, leaving no dangerous fumes or residue. Chemical companies spend billions of dollars each year convincing us we need their products, and it works. Commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month by switching to green cleaning products. It is one of many ways we can save money while creating a healthier environment for everyone. Bridget McDonald Key West911 saves livesAt age 69, I just had my first possible heart attack recently and had to call 911. The responding dispatcher was excellent. She asked all the right questions in a calm, controlled manner and when I asked about the ambulance, she matter-of-factly replied that its already on its way, which was very reassuring to me. As a retired air traffic controller and postal counter clerk, I think Ive got some idea of dealing with stressful situations and the difficulties involved in remaining calm and reassuring under pressure. These dispatchers and the EMT ambulance crews to me are the unsung heroes of the emergency response system, who may be underpaid and under-appreciated considering the demands and responsibilities of their jobs, which concern peoples lives and well being. While none of us are perfect, these people are always striving to react and perform correctly, which is to be applauded. I am grateful for their excellent responses to my situation. Victor LaTorre MarathonZip line will hurt birdsI have been anxiously following the zip-line development at Crane Point Hammock and see that Marathon is on a fast track to make this happen. Doesnt anyone else find it strange that all the public presentations have been done when most of Marathons winter residents have been out of town? It should be noted that many members of Crane Point Hammock are snowbirds who have been unaware of this development. And while the questioning of this extreme plan has up to now been done only by a handful of concerned, mindful residents, surely there will be an outcry when everyone finally sees the potential transformation of what has been one of the Florida Keyslast well-preserved native hammocks, into a thrill-seeking, entertainment nature park. And it will be at the expense of sustaining wildlife, an environmental esthetic and the solitude and peace we enjoy when visiting the hammock. Under the guise of green, educational, economic development, the environmental consequences of the zip-line have not been fully studied or discussed. We live in one of the most ecologically sensitive areas of the nation and it seems that Marathon is choosing to err on the side of exploitation to the detriment of this very special native habitat. Jonathan Wilson MarathonHe pitched workers contributing to their retirements but now says savings should go to TallahasseeOK, we give up. Whose money is it, anyway? Exasperation follows the news story in Saturdays Keynoter letting us know that Gov. Rick Scott now wants Tallahassee to recapture any tax savings from local government employers linked to the states pension fund. Starting July 1, state and municipal workers began contributing 3 percent of their salaries into the state pension plan, reducing their employersshare by 3 percent. Those savings allowed most local taxing authorities to reduce their budgets or avoid even more drastic cuts. And taxpayers, as the ultimate employers, got a break. Now the governor says those savings belong to the state and he wants the Florida Legislature to pass a law recapturing that money. That could hit taxpayers here in the Keys, where the School District could face a $1.5 million hit after cutting some $9 million from its budget. Monroe County governments share is $1.3 million and the Sheriffs Office is another $1.8 million thats money state employees are paying into their own pension plans that local taxpayers paid before. Scotts recapture move strikes at the heart of the larger reduce-my-taxes debate. He seems to think taxes we pay to support local government now needs to go to the state. Since when? If you want to rail against tax policy in Washington, D.C., thats a big fat target and easy because its so far removed. But how would you like the governor and Legislature to dip into Monroe County and take a little more off the top just because they have that power? Ironically, the state already does that with taxes raised to support Monroe County schools. Under the states education funding formula, counties with high property values subsidize poor rural counties where school taxes raise far less than they do in property-rich counties like Monroe. And it happens every time the Legislature passes a law that winds up costing local authorities to implement with no state funds provided, of course. Youve heard of that its called another unfunded mandate. We see the tea party and other groups organizing protest marches on Washington over this issue, but no one has yet taken up the cause in Tallahassee. Maybe its time tax protesters focus on where the money ought to be spent and who decides whats best for local needs. Having state and municipal workers contribute a portion of their salaries toward their pension plans just like in the private sector is fiscally prudent. But then to have the state come along and consider sweeping those savings into a big pot that Tallahassee politicians get to spend well, thats not acceptable. Local voters should decide how they want their local tax dollars spent, not Scott and certainly not state lawmakers. A zip line similar to this is planned for the 63-acre Crane Point Hammock. Hammock officials say the $1.1 million line will result 23 full-time jobs created.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR New rate is unfairIt is impossible to believe the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative is instituting a policy, and expecting the co-op members to buy it, that if you use less electricity, you pay more. And if you use more, you pay less. The explanation sounds to me like when I was a kid and my mother would sugarcoat the medicine to get you to take it. The bottom line is that low-end users like myself who are on fixed incomes are now to be penalized for conservation while big businesses such as shopping centers and hotels are to be subsidized for using more and, as a result, will increase their profits. In plain English, they are robbing the poor to pay for the rich. Maybe they should take their plan to Washington, D.C., politicians. It would be a great counter to the Obama plans. I think I will look into applying for the co-ops Operation Round-up program to subsidize my bill.

BARROSO The complete Florida Keys news and information source.Firms acquire Hawks Cays mortgageAjoint venture between The Related Group and a Miami Beach private equity firm has purchased a $76.8 million mortgage on Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. The acquisition of the debt by Related and Mast Capital, in conjunction with Deutsche Banks Special Situations Group, is part of a broader real estate investment strategy being employed by Related and others. The debt, which was previously held by Barclays Bank, is set to come due in February 2014. But unlike other debt purchases, this one is not in foreclosure or facing distress. Terms of the purchase price were not revealed. We received a good piece of property as collateral, said Matt Allen, chief operating officer for The Related Group. As long as were buying at a goodenough discount, those returns can be great. The resort recently went through a $35 million renovation. It sits on 59 acres and includes a 177-room hotel and 297 privately owned villas. The property has a fullservice marina, retail shops and office space, restaurants and a spa.Barclays Bank previously held resorts debtBy ELAINE WALKERThe Miami HeraldMIDDLE KEYSOn-the-go coffee comes to the Middle KeysLongtime general contractor Curly Smythe has given up building coffee shops in Oregon to run one of his own here in the Florida Keys. The Bend, Ore., native says he made his living building hotels but also constructed several drivethrough coffee shops for an investor. Now the avid coffee lover has traveled about as far as one can inside the continental U.S. to open Curlys Coffee Co. Marathon. The drivethrough shop at 11601 Overseas Highway oceanside (across from DAsign Source) has been open for three months. Theres even a 125-foot seawall for boaters to dock and grab a morning brew before a day on the water. Its going real good. The local community has been super supportive, Smythe said. I did this on purpose to start this time of year to connect with the local people and its worked out perfect. Smythe, 49, runs the shop with daughter Fahalie, 19. He has family that owns property in the Keys and says hes been visiting for 20 years. I love Marathon and I told myself that if no one does this, that as soon as the kids are off to college Im coming down here to open a coffee shop, he said. Smythe noted how prevalent the drive-through coffee business model is on the West Coast. These are very commonplace out West. Sometimes youll come to a four-way intersection and there will be three [corners] with them, he said. Im actually pleasantly surprised; theres a lot of coffee drinkers in this town, too. Its an on-the-go, fast thing. If you want to park you can, but most people just grab a cup and go. The shop, which cant be more than 200 square feet in size, serves a variety of hot and cold drinks including espresso, cappuccino, lattes, hot chocolate, coffee and tea. There are also fruit smoothies in 12-ounce, 16-ounce and 20-ounce sizes. I can almost build anything you want in this little shop, he said. Curlys is open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,October 12,2011 The complete Florida Keys news and information source. The Marathon Women of the Moose joined volunteers all over the world on Sept.17 to clean shorelines during the Ocean Conservancys annual Coastal Cleanup.The women have had their adopted shoreline at Bahia Honda State Park in the Lower Keys since 1994.CLEANING BAHIA HONDA Weekend storm made dent in droughtThe storm system that swept across South and Central Florida over the weekend didnt quite measure up to Tropical Storm Fay, which single-handedly busted a two-year-long drought in 2008. But it came close.Big and wet but not quite windy enough to earn a name, the low-pressure system flooded streets and filled rain gauges from the Keys to Fort Pierce.Although parts of Key Largo and pockets of south Miami-Dade got upwards of 10 inches of rain, even heavier stuff fell north of Lake Okeechobee, the water barrel for a system that supplies more than 5 million people. Thats right where it was most needed, as South Florida enters what forecasters expected to be another unusually dry winter.The Kissimmee River basin, which drains into Lake Okeechobee, got an average of 12.6 inches at its north end and 10.8 inches at it south end with some spots topping 16 inches, said Susan Sylvester, director of operations control for the South Florida Water Management District.Runoff flowing south could raise water levels in Lake O by a foot, perhaps even two, in coming weeks, she said. On Monday, the lake stood at 11.16 feet above sea level about 2.75 feet below where water managers and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which co-manages the lake, want it to be entering the dry season.Sylvester said the rains werent broad enough to totally erase a deficit lingering from a record-setting drought last year. The water conservation areas west of urban Miami-Dade-Broward and Palm Beach, for instance, got only a few inches for the most part. Still, such a deluge in mid-October, when the dry season typically kicks in, was an unexpected surprise.I think we made up some of the gap, Sylvester said. Because of a lack of storage in South Floridas antiquated drainage system, much of the rainfall in urban areas will be lost out through canals to Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, but storms did top off critical storage areas, including the chain of lakes north of Lake Okeechobee.The big lake itself also will rise over the next month or so if not quite like it did after Fay dumped 20 inches in 2008.Over the next week, the lake rose 2.5 feet, the fastest climb in 77 years of recordkeeping. Sylvester doesnt expect that kind of impact now, in part because Fay also dumped some eight inches right over the lake. Unlike with Fay, which meandered for days across the state, this deluge came in an intense, relatively short span from Saturday into early Sunday an amount that will overwhelm drainage systems built to handle about six inches in a day.Downpours help to replenish Lake OkeechobeeBy CURTIS MORGANcmorgan@MiamiHerald.comWATER MANAGEMENT

Apenalty call for aiding the runner during the scrum of a short-yardage dive by quarterback Addison DumaKenny wiped out a fourthquarter touchdown Friday against host Highland Christian. That turned out to be the deciding factor in a 14-7 victory by Highlands Knights. Ive been coaching high school and college for 20 years and Ive never seen that call made, Coral Shores head coach Ed Holly said. I was like, really? It was the final odd twist in a game that was interrupted by an early lightning delay and a halftime intermission spent in the open during a drenching downpour. You couldnt even see the other side of the field, Holly said. There was nowhere to go. It was a crazy experience but our guys persevered and fought through it. They did what they were supposed to do. The two teams, playing each other for the first time, each scored on their first drives. Highland (2-3) took the opening kickoff and moved steadily for the games first touchdown. The Canes came back with a 61-yard march. At Highlands30-yard line, the storm delay sent both teams off the field for more than half an hour. It didnt faze the Canes. Our guys came back and picked up right where they left off, Holly said. Junior runner Kodi Roberts followed blockers and burst up the middle for an 11-yard score with 2:34 left in the quarter. The game ended the first quarter at 7-7 and stayed that way through the next two quarters and most of the fourth. Our defense buckled down, Holly said, with David Bogue at defensive end and outside linebacker Alex Gomez leading the charge. The Hurricanes appeared to take the lead with DumaKennys touchdown before it was waved off, and the Canes could not reach the end zone again. Apass interference call against Coral Shores put Highlands in scoring position, and the Knights hit a touchdown throw with 18 seconds left. Both teams played hard, Holly said. Our guys showed a lot of character. Its not what happens but how you respond. The Hurricanes (3-3) welcome this weekends open date before the Oct. 21 homecoming game. It could not come at a better time, Holly said. Were banged up at nearly every position. Some of our guys, like [halfback] Andrew Garcia, have been playing through an injury. The Canes expect to have a handful of players who have been sidelined back in the lineup.TD nullified in the fourth in PompanoHIGHLAND 14,CORAL SHORES 7By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Henry Hidy (center) took first place in Saturdays MaraTri half-triathlon at Sombrero Beach in Marathon with a time of 36 minutes,8 seconds.Martin Sykut (left) and Raphael Gomez took second and third at the rainy-day competition with times of 36:33.4 and 38:12.2,respectively.Forty-seven racers turned out,including some relay teams.Renee and Brad Makimaa (seventh overall) were the first to complete the race as a team;second-place team was a trio of sixth-graders Audrey Matthis,Logan Sipe and Takara McKnight.TRIATHLON WINNERS Fishing columnCapt.Chris Johnson,who makes a living taking people fishing while theyre on vacation,took some vacation himself the past week.His Fishing the Florida Keys column will return next week. Conchs, Fins solid in OrlandoIn preparation for todays county championships against Coral Shores and Marathon (4 p.m. at Founders Park in Islamorada), the Key West High swim team raced against some of the states top swimmers at the Florida Swimming Pool Association Invitational last weekend at the Orlando YMCAAquatic Center. We turned in some good times and saw what we had to do to get ready for the rest of the season, said coach Lori Bosco, who led a contingent of 15 Conch swimmers. The stands were full and it was very exciting. None of the Key West swimmers reached the finals in the 44-team event which was dominated by powerhouses Jacksonville Bolles and Tallahassee Chiles but three Conchs won heats and a good number of personal-best times were posted. Senior A.J. Hally won a heat in the 100-yard breaststroke in a personal-best time of 1:12.78. Sophomore Derrick Allen won a heat in the 100 freestyle, lowering his best time to 54.45. Freshman Chris Bujak was first in a 100 butterfly heat in a personal-best 1:06.17, and senior Hanna Valek won a 100-free heat in 1:08.70. Bujak also lowered his time in the 200 individual medley (2:31), as did senior Claudio Montone-Rodriguez (2:38). Others lowering times were Dora DeMaria (28.87) in the 50 free; junior Alice Tallmadge (1:10.17 in the 100 free) and senior Vincent Wassylenko (1:12.18 in the 100 back). After today, the Conchs will have two remaining regular-season meets at the Florida Keys Community College pool next Wednesday against Marathon (5 p.m.) and Oct. 22 against Westminster Christian (10 a.m.)Marathon resultsNo Marathon High School swimmers reached a final, either, but several posted school records at the Orlando event. Markie Sandusky broke her own record by 3 seconds with a 1:17 in the 100-yard backstroke. She also swam the 200-yard individual medley in 2:46. Malorie Woodbury beat her own 100-yard freestyle record with 1:02. The 400-yard freestyle relay team of Woodbury, Sandusky, Abi Connell and Kyra Simcic-Swanson broke their own record in 4:29. It was good to get to a bigger meet. They got to see some pretty fast swims and it was a good practice again for districts and regionals, coach Sarah Maschal said.

Dolphins fall to 2-5 following lossApair of early miscues helped build a deficit the Marathon High School football team couldnt overcome Friday in Miami. The Dolphins (2-5) lost to yet another strong District 16-3Aopponent in Westminster Christian School, 47-15. Westminster quickly scored on three plays to take a 7-0 lead, and went up 140 when Marathon fumbled after a 50-yard drive into Warriors territory. The second touchdown came on a 25-yard pass from Westminsters senior quarterback, David Thompson. Hes committed to a full athletic scholarship for both football and baseball at the University of Miami. Dolphins senior Trevelle Beckford scored on an 89yard interception return to keep the score close late in the first quarter. But the Warriors rattled off a 13-play drive, topped off with a 1-yard touchdown run, to go up 21-7 in the second quarter. Westminster then blocked a Marathon punt and scored on a 9-yard touchdown run to take a 277 lead into the half. Westminster started the second half with an eightplay drive that ended with an 11-yard touchdown pass from Thompson. The score was 33-7 after a missed extra point. A57-yard punt return for a touchdown and a fouryard scoring run put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter. Marathon scored a late touchdown on Yoniel Esquirols 5-yard touchdown run. He converted the 2-point conversion to make it 47-15. Beckford led the Dolphins in rushing with 57 yards on 17 carries. Esquirol ran 11 times for 54 yards. Esquirol had three tackles and four assists on defense, while Beckford had three tackles and three assists. Ramarlo Robertson had three tackles, one for a loss and a forced fumble. The Dolphins are scheduled to host Chaminade Prep School in their homecoming game Friday at 7:30 p.m. The homecoming parade from the former Boot Key Bridge north on U.S. 1 to the school is scheduled for mid-afternoon, so be prepared for traffic delays.UM-bound quarterback leads WarriorsWESTMINSTER 47,MARATHON 15By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDolphins continue dropping their scoresThe Marathon High School golf team shot its lowest score in three years en route to a home victory Friday over LaSalle High School. The Dolphins179 was the first time this season the team broke 180 and bested LaSalle (189) by 10 strokes. The top four golfersninehole totals are tallied to make the score. It was our last home match [this season] and we beat them before. We knew if we played well we could do it again, coach Kevin Freeman said. The course was wet and windy, but we practiced in it all week so I guess it didnt affect us. Kodi Daniels and Kyle Pierce each shot 44 on the Sombrero Country Club back nine. They were followed closely by Sean Roussin (45), Kevin McKeon (46) and Ariel Rodriguez (49). Im happy with the 179. Theyre [realizing] that one bad shot doesnt ruin the hole.

The inaugural Stone Crab Eating Contest, a challenge for amateur eaters, is set for Oct. 22 beginning at 1 p.m. at Keys Fisheries Market & Marina, off U.S. 1 at 35th Street bayside, Marathon. Entrants must register and be present by noon the day of the event, and are tasked with cracking and eating 25 stone crab claws, picking them completely clean, in the fastest time. In the event of a tie, those competitors must face off in a 10-claw competition to determine the winner. Prizes are to be awarded to the top three finishers. The first-place winner is to receive a two-night lodging package at Key Wests Doubletree Grand Key Resort featuring champagne, dinner for two and a sunset cruise on a tall ship or catamaran. The second-place crab consumer earns a Swim with the Dolphins package at the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key, while the thirdplace finisher wins a $50 Keys Fisheries gift certificate. The entry fee is $25 per contestant, and you must be at least 18. The contest is limited to 50 participants. Among the rules:No professional eaters amateurs only.Contestants will be allowed to drink water during the competition.If a contestant throws up, he or she is automatically disqualified. Grounds for disqualification include:Not disclosing risks that could jeopardize the contestants health or well-being.Being under the influence of any substance.Your appearance and/or clothing is deemed inappropriate (dress is Keys attire).Starting prior to the start signal. Any food in a competitors mouth at the final whistle counts toward the final tally if the competitor chews and swallows that portion of the competitive food. But competitors may not stuff food into their mouth in the final seconds of the contest to increase their total. Judges have the discretion to impose penalties on those who do. Stone crabs are considered by many to be the finest Florida seafood for their succulent claw meat. In addition, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, they are the states only renewable seafood resource. Legal-size claws are harvested between Oct. 15 and May 15 each year, and the crabs body is returned to the water to generate new claws.

The shaping of Key West in decades gone byKey West has a raging case of Good Old Days syndrome. Whenever you moved here, someone who was here before you is sure to tell you how much better it was five, 10 or 50 years earlier. But there are a few specific times in the islands history when, depending on your personal inclinations, being here would have been truly memorable. One of those was the late 1960s and early 1970s, when Key Wests nonjudgmental ethos allowed free spirits to express themselves and marijuana smuggling to get completely out of control. The result was lots of people did lots of drugs; some people made lots of money; some people eventually went to jail and a few young men found their artistic voices in the middle of the chaos, establishing themselves as voices of their generation. Thats the convergence William McKeen chronicles in his new book. Jimmy Buffett was one of those smart and lucky enough to arrive in Key West at that time, and hes made a fabulous living ever since concocting a mythological version of subtropical hedonism and selling it to the middle-class masses. The darker side of the story was expressed by Thomas McGuane in his novels in the Shade and Panama, stories of lives spiraling out of control, small-town grudges that get violent, of having nowhere to go once youve reached the end of the road. As the subtitle would indicate, McKeen places Key Wests literary allure squarely on the shoulders of Ernest Hemingway: Tom McGuane, Jim Harrison, Phil Caputo ... eventually every young male writer of that generation came south, needing to deal with Hemingways ghost. They came to Key West, many of them, to take part in the literary ck-measuring contest with Papa. Perhaps its inevitable in a book chronicling a maledominated hippie paradise, but the tone of the language is jarring in a work that wants to be taken seriously as narrative nonfiction. Frequently dropping the f-word, referring to an early 19th Century Navy captain as the bad ass of the ocean sea and describing him as pissed comes off as sniggeringly adolescent. Sadly, there are more than a few howlers about Key West, from the origin of the term Conch for island natives (that didnt start here; it came over with settlers from the Bahamas) to the assertion that in the 1960s there was constant tension between the Cuban population and the ruling Caucasian class. Actually, by the 1960s, Cubans had been enmeshed in island culture for almost a century, and just about every Conch family, ruling or not, was partly of Cuban descent. Quite a few hardworking locals would take issue with McKeens sweeping statement that Today, residents of Key West fall into one of two groups, millionaires or homeless, with hardly anyone in between. Mile Marker Zero does a good job chronicling the origin story for Margaritaville the concept, the song, the restaurant chain, an idea that continues to have a powerful hold over the popular imagination and on which Key West continues to cash in. The stories of many of the other protagonists McGuane, Harrison, painter Russell Chatham come off as somewhat disjointed, possibly because their time here was disjointed. They got here at different times for winter fishing breaks, partying their brains out or splitting up with significant others. All of them moved on, deciding their time in party paradise was over and they would settle down and raise their children in more conventional climes. You have to laugh when McKeens guide to the time and place, the writer Tom Corcoran, revisits the island in the present day and finds that the quaintness and weirdness that Corcoran found when he stepped off the plane in 1968 has largely been institutionalized. The lead institutionalizer would have to be Corcorans friend and photography subject, the iconic free spirit himself, Jimmy Buffett.
