WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,NOVEMBER 16,2011 VOLUME 58,NO.92 25 CENTS Crossing Key Largo Mainland runners win all of the divisions in the third annual Key Largo Bridge Run.Story, 1B Tragic week The deadliest week ever in the 31 years of the Key West powerboat races comes to an end. Story, 4A In slayings,justice moves slowHomicides in the Florida Keys are a rarity, with just a handful and sometimes none happening each year. But once one does happen and an arrest is made, it can take years for the case to be resolved. That goes for intentional slayings and those charged with killing someone while driving drunk. For example, Jonathon LeBaron, 35, was arrested on Feb. 22, 2009, charged with capital murder in the beating death of 57year-old Richard Gardner of Cape Coral aboard Gardners boat 12 days earlier. The vessel was in storage at the Kings Pointe Marina on Stock Island. LeBarons girlfriend, Kristen Whitmore, 42, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in October 2009 and agreed to testify against LeBaron in return for an 18year sentence. Yet LeBarons case isnt close to seeing trial, says Chief Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Manny Madruga. Among the reasons: Depositions needed from people in three states Florida; Tennessee, where police stopped LeBaron and Whitmore in Gardners car, only to be let go; and in Utah, where the two are from and where they were arrested. Other cases with long delays:The second-degree murder case of Nicholas Ferro, 26, of Hollywood.Hes accused of stabbing to death Key Wester Marquese Butler, 23, on Oct. 31, 2009, in Key West and is seeking to have the case thrown out based on the Stand Your Ground Law, which allows for self defense.Athree-judge Third District Court of Appeal panel rejected his petition on Oct.Several suspects await trial years after allegedly committing crimesBy SEAN KINNEY and RYAN McCARTHYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTWHALE OF AN EFFORT Photo courtesy SEAWORLD ORLANDOSeaWorld Orlando animal experts and veterinarians worked with Orlando-based Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic to develop a custom-fitted brace for a pilot whale with scoliosis,or curvature of the spine,that stranded itself in the Lower Keys in May.Experts say this is the first time a custom-fitted orthopedic device of this kind has been used on a large whale. Story, 3A Ward supporterlashes outIn happier times, campaign volunteer Janet Wood clutched Dennis Ward to celebrate November 2008 election returns showing Ward would soon be Monroe Countys state attorney. But Wood, an Islamorada real-estate agent, this week leveled an irate Facebook blast at Ward, calling him a liar and not transparent. She ran his campaign and I am so sorry to Mark Kohl [whom Ward defeated] and all the qualified candidates, Wood posted. We may fix it Now! DWDW DONE WITH DENNIS WARD!!! Tuesday morning, Wood deleted the post from her page on the social networking website. Reached by telephone, she declined to discuss reasons for the post. I have no comment about that, Wood said. Maybe at a later date. Ward filed paperwork Sept. 30 to seek a second term. Asked about Woods apparent dissatisfaction with him, Ward said, I have no idea.

The commission was slated to consider a four-year extension for Gastesi at todays commission meeting in Key Largo, but a resident sent a record of his South Florida traffic violations, from 1997 through 2009, to board members Tuesday.It lists offenses from speeding and blowing stop signs to having an expired registration and twice driving with a suspended license in 2009. Gastesi said the suspended-license violations were related to unpaid SunPass balances.When you have a SunPass and you dont pay the bill, they suspend your license. I moved here [in 2008] and they were sending the bill to my old house in Miami, he said.In his proposal for a new contract, Gastesi wants a county car to use. He now uses his own car and gets a travel allowance as part of his salary.County Attorney Suzanne Hutton said in an e-mail to Commissioner Kim Wigington that Gastesis poor drivingHis concern: Personal use of county carBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCOUNTY ADMINSTRATOR CONTRACTPSC named in suit over No Name powerAstate agency could oversee the decades-long battle over commercial electricity on No Name Key after Dec. 2.Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin is slated to rule that day on whether he or the state Public Service Commission has jurisdiction over the legality of electricity on the Lower Keys island.No Name property owner and commercial power proponent Bob Reynolds filed a motion in August to dismiss a county suit against Keys Energy Services and No Names 43 homeowners that seeks to clarify whether the county is obligated to issue permits to run lines over county-owned conservation land or for homeowners to connect to power poles. The motion seeks to have the PSC oversee the No Name decision.PSC spokeswoman Kirsten Olsen said Tuesday the agencys legal staff is studying where jurisdiction may or may not be involved.... The [commission] is aware of the issue and the motion to dismiss and is looking into it. No determinations have been made yet.Keys Energy planned to finalize a deal with the No Name Key Homeowners Association in March to run commercial lines to and through the island. Owners were set to foot the estimated $650,000 bill before county officials raised concerns. I think the theory is that [the PSC has] more expertise in this area and since its a utility regulatory board, they might be more inclined to see things their way, Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger said. Reynoldsmotion says Keys Energy has a territorial agreement with the PSC and states: The PSC holds the police powers of the state of Florida for the protection of the public welfare to enforce, regulate and resolve disputes regarding municipal utilities within a defined PSC ... agreement.Resident says oversight falls to state agencyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEYSee Contract,3ASee Homicides,2A LeBARON Lady Conchs victoriousThe Lady Conchs of Key West squeak by Pinecrest in a 1-0 soccer match.

After extensive discussion, input from Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson and a tight vote, the Monroe County School Districts Audit and Finance Committee has agreed to follow state open-government laws. The issue considered by the five-member advisory panel in a Friday meeting at Marathon High School was to what extent members should follow the Sunshine Law, specifically, how internal communications should flow. In the past, committee members have hurled accusations, one of which Wilson affirmed, of Sunshine Law violations at district administrators relative to their ongoing bargaining with the United Teachers of Monroe union.Now holding up the metaphorical Sunshine mirror to themselves, the committee voted 2-1, with one abstention and member Melissa Grady absent, to hold itself to the highest standard, district Chief Internal Auditor Ken Gentile said.The next step, he said, is approval of a resolution formalizing new policy that committee members should not communicate in any form ... for items that will be potentially coming up on the agenda or coming up for a decision. Wilson explained: Unilateral communication [for example, a one-way email] to each other is not explicitly illegal, but its discouraged because it encourages responses and a response is a violation.My hope in attending, he continued, was to put this issue to rest once and for all. I have other things do than be the Sunshine Law referee at the School District.Gentile said now he would serve as a repository, for communication, meaning committee members could send him e-mails, which he would then distribute; responses would come directly back to Gentile.Committee members Roger McVeigh and Bill Anderson voted in favor of going forward with a resolution while Chairman Stuart Kessler voted against, and Larry Murray didnt cast a vote, stating simply, present. He also told committee members they could kiss his butt, Gentile said.This has been an issue the committee has addressed for over a year, Gentile said. We had a really good discussion about it and Mark Wilson was a very good sounding board.I would like to have seen a unanimous vote but the consensus of the committee and a majority vote is still something thats supported by the committee.

The men, identities not released, spent at least three days adrift after their larger boat named Lady Rosalee sank, according to the Palm Beach Post The newspaper said preliminary reports are that the boat sunk sometime after departing from Islamorada on Friday, leaving the two men to fend for their lives in the smaller boat. Despite spending nearly four days out at sea ... the men were a little dehydrated and fatigued, but were listed as stable. The Post said the Boca Raton Police Department is working with the U.S. Coast Guard and Customs and Border Protection to obtain information on the two men and the circumstances surrounding the sinking of their boat.

He filed for a rehearing last Thursday.Theres no trial date in the offing for William Dieguez, 23, and Sean Roberts, 18, both of Marathon and charged with firstdegree murder in the May 22, 2010, shooting death of 18year-old Big Pine Key resident Frank Randleman. Dieguez and Roberts are accused of shooting Randleman in his grandmothers home in the Seahorse RVPark during an apparent robbery, possibly related to a drug deal. Madruga said the case is pending and in the process of discovery.Pablo Jimenez, 29, is charged with second-degree murder in the May 31, 2010, death of Tracy Heshmaty, 37, and could stand trial in the spring, according to Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson.Heshmatys body was found in a pool of blood in the back parking lot of First State Bank on Simonton Street in Key West. Authorities have not revealed the connection, if any, between the two.The state is also still building its case, Madruga said, against William Millstead, 48, charged with second-degree murder in the hammer-beating death of Clay Ratcliff, 49, during an argument over a woman.The slaying took place on Christmas 2010 at a homeless encampment near Enchanted Isle by Key Haven.On Sept. 2, Carl Eric Johanson, 66, was found in his apartment at the Henry Haskins Senior Citizen Plaza on Kennedy Drive, bound with his throat slashed.Tod Geofrey Helfrich, 46, is the prime suspect although he has not been charged, as prosecutors await a forensic analysis by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Helfrich is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on charges of probation violation and grand theft related to him being caught in Orlando with Johansons car, cell phone and credit card. As with the homicide cases, drunk-driving cases involving death also move through the courts slowly.Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery says he anticipates a January trial for 30-yearold Pierson Villalobos, charged with killing Deborah Mangrum, 42, and Christopher Jennings, 34, in a Nov. 28, 2009, drunk-driving crash on U.S. 1 on Marathon.Villalobos is charged with two counts each of DUImanslaughter and vehicular homicide, and three counts of DUI-personal injury and property damage with a prior conviction. Public Defender Anthony Barrows represents Villalobos and has said he was working on a possible plea deal. However, Demmery said, As of now, there hasnt been any plea that were close on.Bill Heffernan, the attorney for a Michigan man charged with causing the death of 61year-old Bernie Snyder while driving drunk in Marathon, says his clients trial is months away. Richard Lee Hall, a 66year-old seasonal resident, is charged with DUImanslaughter. He was at the wheel of a 2001 Corvette on Feb. 2, 2010, when he plowed into a metal pole and fence along U.S. 1. Snyder was tossed from the car. Hall is back up in Michigan and weve been doing some depositions; some witnesses came and some didnt, Heffernan said.Attorneys are also working through depositions and discovery in the DUImanslaughter case against 23year-old Alison Bryan of Ocala. Hal Schuhmacher, her attorney, said theres lots of work to be done before his client stands trial. She was driving a Chrysler on Aug. 10, 2010, on MacDonald Avenue on Stock Island when she slammed into a concrete utility pole, killing passenger Scott Ackles, 29. Schuhmacher estimated the trial would fall in early to mid-2012.Justice slowFrom Homicides,1A FERRO DIEGUEZ Fourhomicides remain unsolvedWhile several homicide cases are winding their way through Monroe County Circuit Court, at least four Florida Keys slayings two of which go back several years remain unsolved.Henry Allwardt, a 70year-old security guard, was shot repeatedly in the bedroom of his downstairs apartment at an Upper Matecumbe Key residence in September 2010. The slaying of Allwardt, a native of Germany who worked security at The Moorings resort, is the only Florida Keys homicide in 2010 in which no one has been charged. Detectives with the Sheriffs Office believe Allwardt was targeted specifically, most likely by someone known to him, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. This was not an arbitrary or anonymous attack.The body of Edward Bozarth, 62, was found stuffed in a plastic bag on his liveaboard boat at Gilberts Marina in Key Largo in July 2007. Neighbors alerted lawmen to a stench emanating from the boat.Bozarth died of blows to his head inflicted by a blunt object. Denise Bozarth, the victims 38-year-old wife, left the Keys with the couples two children a few days before the body was discovered. The case is still open. Some leads look promising; others look like dead ends, State Attorney Dennis Ward said. In May 2008, Marathon resident Bernie Perona found the body of 48-yearold Beth Neumeier buried in a mulch pile behind his 24th Street house.Three and a half years later, Herrin says police are still actively investigating her death and have interviewed persons of interest. Autopsy results at the time confirmed Neumeier was killed but detectives withheld and continue to do so details of how she was killed.Information such as this, which has not been made available to the public, is necessary in any such investigation to allow detectives to determine if information they are getting in tips and interviews is legitimate, Herrin said. Neumeier was known to work as a prostitute.Police in Key West have several people of interest but have not singled out a suspect in the Oct. 28, homicide of 32-year-old Jonathan Alvarado, formerly a server at La Trattoria Beachside and originally from Venezuela.His body was found underneath a truck on Grinnell Street; he apparently died of severe head trauma inflicted by a large rock found next to his body. Staff writers Kevin Wadlow, Ryan McCarthy and Sean Kinney contributed to this report.Three men, one woman are victimsCRIME FRONTKeynoter StaffAudit panel embraces SunshineBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSShes got a good heart. Ward, a former Miami Beach police officer, assistant state attorney and assistant public defender, defeated two-term incumbent Mark Kohl in the 2008 general election. More than eight months before the Aug. 14, 2012, primary, Ward has drawn one challenger, Catherine Vogel. Both Ward and Vogel are Democrats. Filing for the seat remains open until April 16. Vogel was one of two chief assistants to Kohl, and left the State Attorneys Office shortly after the 2008 vote. Ward campaigned on replacing Kohls top staffers, Vogel and J. Jefferson Overby.Alongtime Florida Keys resident, Wood also campaigned for the re-election of former County Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro, a Republican who lost a 2010 race. During that campaign, Wood was criticized for giving out campaign literature and items to children at a Tavernier Wounded Warrior Project event for injured veterans.Back in 2009, Wood expressed interest in being named to the Islamorada Village Council to replace Cathi Hill, who had resigned.Supporter quitsFrom Ward,1ASmell of pot leads to cocaine arrestThe smell of marijuana emanating from a car at a Marathon convenience store led to three drug arrests including one for 18 grams of cocaine Monday.Deputies Nicholis Whiteman and Christian Galls from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office were walking into Dions On The Run at U.S 1 and 15th Street at 7:30 p.m. when they smelled the pot coming from a silver sport utility vehicle, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Two people were in the back seat; two others were in the store.The deputies approached the SUVand asked about the smell. Two pair in the auto admitted to smoking pot as they were driving but said they discarded the remains of the marijuana cigarette before stopping at the store, Herrin said. The two people in the store then came outside.All four denied any drugs were in the vehicle although a plastic bag with marijuana in it was found at the feet of one of the men from inside the store, Herrin said.Deputy Danielle Malone and her dog drug Tracer were called and the dog alerted to drugs in the car, Herrin said. In it, she said, the deputies found 18 grams of cocaine, which the front seat passenger said belonged to him. He also had $4,644 on him.Three of the four were arrested. Reza Adili, 28, of Southwest Ranches was charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. He also had the money seized. Christopher Bogdan, 29, of Hollywood was charged with possession of marijuana and James Lixie, 29, of Cooper City was charged with possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence.MIDDLE KEYS ROBERTS JIMENEZ MILLSTEAD HELFRICH VILLALOBOS HALL BRYAN KEYSNET.COM
record would not affect the countys insurance premiums if the commission OKs a county car for him. But Gastesi said the personal use might, so he wants to hold off the extension until December.What we realized is there is a liability for me having a county car and using it for personal use at times. Its a puzzle thats hard to solve, he said. It would have been a first-time arrangement. Its almost too linear of a county for it to work and I hadnt thought of it before this [driving] record thing came up.As for the poor driving record, Gastesi said its not something Im proud of. The actual driving record issue doesnt have an affect directly [on the contract], but its obviously something to be considered. For me, its somewhat embarrassing, he said. Polled Tuesday, commissioners said the traffic tickets wouldnt affect their decision on his contract. But some voiced concern with his request for the county car while continuing to receive a $650 monthly car allowance. Gastesis received the car allowance when hired in April 2008, but it was rolled into his salary for retirement purposes in 2010. I dont want to go through another county administrator search. We can address those issues with Roman and hes just going to have to be a little more attentive to his driving. Whether he winds up with a county car or a car allowance will be determined, Commissioner George Neugent said. Ive had speeding tickets before, too, Mayor Heather Carruthers said. I think well have to make it contingent on if he gets any more violations he wont be able to use a company car.Commissioner David Rice said Gastesis driving record being aired in public is likely somewhat embarrassing, but that he feels hes done a good job for the county.Wigington, who said Gastesis driving record is not a concern, prefers extending Gastesis contract one year, through May 2013, because the majority of the commission Wigington, Carruthers and Murphy is up for re-election in 2012 and whoever constitutes a new commission should make the hiring decision. Fellow commissioners dont appear on board with that plan. He wants to stay the administrator, but a one-year extension, I think hed see that as a slap in the face, Neugent said.Ticket issue raisedFrom Contract,1A *Wednesday,November 16,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com 3 BIG DAYSOF SAVINGS ALL JESS AND JANE!25% OFF!COME IN AND TAKE 25% OFF OUR ENTIRE STOCK OF NOVELTY TEES FROM JESS AND JANE.

Whale fitted with spinal braceVeterinarians and animal experts from SeaWorld Orlando are trying to help a whale from the Florida Keys with severe scoliosis by using a custom-fitted spinal brace.The female pilot whale, dubbed 300, is one of 23 pilot whales that beached themselves off Cudjoe Key in May. Most died at the scene, but two adult males were healthy enough to be returned to deep water.Five remaining whales were transported to the Marine Mammal Conservancy in Key Largo for treatment, but three were either euthanized or died, leaving 300 and another one, called 301. That one, like 300, was taken to live at SeaWorld after veterinarians determined it could not survive in the wild.After 300 was rescued, the 1,000-pound whale developed scoliosis (also known as curvature of the spine), which keeps her from swimming normally. SeaWorld called in Dr. Philip Meinhardt, an orthopedic spine surgeon with Orlando-based Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic, about four weeks ago. He worked with Scott Saunders, president of Orlandos ABC Prosthetics & Orthotics, to create the brace. SeaWorld provided them aerial photography of the whale, plus her measurements and X-rays. The way this brace works, you have to apply tension in certain areas to try to correct this deformity, Meinhardt said Monday. After the first fitting, adjustments were made to the straps because their silicone coating irritated the whales skin, Meinhardt said. Adding foam made the contraption more buoyant and gave the whale more maneuverability.Shes extremely docile, said Scott Gearhart, senior staff veterinarian at SeaWorld. She has a fantastic attitude.Her final fitting was last week. In a release, SeaWorld said this is the first time this type of custom-fitted orthopedic device has been used on a large whale. Were doing physical therapy three times a day with this animal at this point, said Jon Peterson, a senior member of the animalrescue team. The braces design allows it to be adjusted. The goal is to straighten the whales spine and restore use of her tail. Gearhart said he would like to see progress within the next two or three months. If the brace doesnt work, surgery could be an option, but Gearhart hopes to avoid it. That is an absolute last resort, he said.Animal stranded in Lower Keys, now at SeaWorldMcClatchy-TribuneCUDJOE KEY WHALE STRANDING Photo courtesy SEAWORLD ORLANDOSeaWorld Orlando staff puts a custom orthopedic brace on No.300 to try to cure the whale of scoliosis.

EDITORIALAnother battle for insuranceLETTERS TO THE EDITORCampground for Crane Point?We have recently seen strong objections to the proposal of the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust to install zip lines at Crane Point Hammock in Marathon. The purpose of the trusts proposal is to raise much-needed capital to fund operations and pay down debt of Crane Point. The objectors correctly point out that zip lines would damage the area as a bird sanctuary and cause other unforeseen damage to this pristine ecological environment. I agree with their criticism and believe the adverse impact on the wildlife would greatly exceed what they are predicting. However, criticizing the Land and Sea Trust proposal is easy, and providing an idea for more alternatives, a more eco-friendly source of revenue for Crane Point, is more difficult. Please allow me to suggest an alternative to the zip-line development. In the late 1970s, New York developer Stanley Selengut leased a hillside on the shore of Maho Bay, a pristine, remote location in the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park (St. John). Selengut proceeded to build two dozen tent cabins connected by a boardwalk, with centrally located bathrooms, showers and an eating area. The tent cabins were advertised as eco-friendly luxury camping sites and afforded wood floors, a small outside deck, real beds and an area for cooking with propane stoves. Selenguts Maho Bay campground was a huge success, and the weekly rental money generated was nearly the same as modest condos in the nearby town of Cruz Bay. An eco-friendly luxury campground at Crane Point could be equally successful. It could become a destination place for ecology-minded groups from all over the country. If properly constructed, these tent cabins could have no adverse impact on the environment, raise much-needed revenue and prevent the ecological disaster of the proposed zip lines. Mark Peterson Big Pine KeyZip line unrealisticI oppose Crane Point Hammocks proposed zip-line attraction because its business plan is not realistic. The optimistic financial projections assume an almost continuous flow of zip-line customers, not allowing for the Keys realities of rain, strong wind or seasonal variations in tourism. I have examined the grant application, the Tourist Development Council application and other related documents (all are available on the website www.keepcranepointnatural.com ). My conclusion is this zip-line project would not be under consideration without the prospect of a large, taxpayerfunded grant. For more than two decades, the Keys community has rallied to help Crane Point when a need has been publicized, so it speaks volumes that the organization did not first bring the zip-line proposal to its members and other supporters, both to solicit comments and to gather seed money before seeking a grant. As a supporter of Crane Point since 1988 and a former board member, I am deeply concerned that pursuing the zipline project would further jeopardize the financial health of Crane Point, increasing the likelihood that some of the now-protected property will have to be sold for development. I urge community members to see for themselves what is being promised under the banner of job creation and who is on the hook when those overly optimistic numbers do not materialize. I sincerely want Crane Point to succeed and thrive, but gambling with its continued existence is a risk I cannot support. Joyce Newman Big Pine KeyWhats with the lights?We returned from our summer trip three weeks ago to find the pretty lights on Sombrero Beach Road in Marathon have not been maintained. We counted 17 lights out from Publix to Anglers Drive. Wow, what is wrong, buying the wrong bulbs? Nobody to change them? What? I called City Hall and told them of the problem and they said they were aware and were working on it. The next week, we saw a city truck with two workers driving the bike path with the lights on. They appeared to be counting the lights out. We were pleased with the response and expected results. On Nov. 7, we went out of town for five days. We returned home to find not 17 lights out but now 28 out in the same area. What is wrong and what do we have to do to get some lights back on Sombrero Beach Road? Jack Burley MarathonProud to be a MarineThe U.S. Marine Corps236th birthday celebration in Key Largo was an electrifying charge and exhilarating lift that refuses to dissipate. The solemn and grave traditions that were upheld during this beautiful ceremony were followed by nothing less than pure bliss as we sang, danced, laughed and sought comfort in one anothers company. The unconditional love and camaraderie shared among Marines hasnt any limits. Through the annals of our history, we have literally laid our lives down for one another. How can you not love deeply a person who would selflessly sacrifice himor herself so that you might not be mortally wounded or seriously injured? The civilians who supported and attended this Marine Corpsbirthday observance were absolutely magnificent. Without their help, we would have not been able to have this event. Mr. Paul Bean, the Publix manager in Key Largo, generously made certain that we all had enough to eat. American Legion Post 333 graciously opened the doors of its magnificent facility and magnanimously hosted this celebration. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10211 provided us with a beautifully decorative and delicious cake. John Donnelly and Norm Higgins created an awe-inspiring venue for the nearly 200 people in attendance. Their impressive management of the event was spectacular. The musical excellence and precision marching by Becca Swango and Jessica Smits of the Coral Shores High School Fife and Drum Team was spellbinding. State Attorney Dennis Ward was honored with a Semper Fidelis Award for prosecutorial excellence. Sgt. Davis Yates, Sgt. Ray Gutierrez and Cpl. Robert Axberg presented this beautiful keepsake to the state attorney. The integrity and dignity that Mr. Wards presence brought to our gathering was evident in the faces of all those who came up to greet him. Im grateful to live in America. Im blessed to have had the honor and privilege to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps. Jessie Davis Key LargoBanquets wonderfulSave-A-Turtle would like to thank everyone who attended our annual banquet.

With all their excellent care, I was healed and doing fine in the time allotted. They are all my heroes and lifesavers. Sharon Hamilton MarathonPast increases were successfully fought but theres a new pitch that would harm property ownersProperty owners in the Keys should roll up their sleeves and brace for another fight over windstorm rates. The Citizens Property Insurance Corp. board met Monday in Orlando and decided to push lawmakers for rate hikes, setting limits on luxury homes that can be insured with Citizens and even prohibiting commercial coverage. Thats the same package of pro-industry rules introduced in the Legislature this past spring by Sen. Alan Hays (R-Umatilla). Fortunately, lawmakers didnt enact the sweeping changes sought by insurance lobbyists and Citizensown policy makers, whove been ordered by Gov. Rick Scott to downsize Citizens and shed tens of thousands of policies. So expect the push for rate hikes and restrictions to be back on the Legislatures upcoming calendar. Only this time, the committees that oversee insurance and banking regulations are meeting earlier than ever. Annalise Mannix, executive director of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, says the insurance lobby is coming back with a lot of the same stuff as last year. She worries about Scotts influence on the proposals, since hes openly talked about selling off Citizens, which is the public insurer of last resort for many Florida property owners. Here in the Keys, Citizens provides a near monopoly on windstorm coverage, insuring more than 24,000 residential and commercial properties. Hays earlier proposed a prohibition on Citizens covering commercial buildings, which would be devastating in the Keys, where there are few alternative windstorm policies. And Hayslegislative package would force Citizens to ratchet down residential coverage to cap at $500,000 by 2016. Committee hearings have already begun. Mannix urged Keys property owners to call or write lawmakers and point out that Citizens is the only game in town. There are no viable alternatives for commercial windstorm coverage in the Keys outside of Citizens. And Keys windstorm rates are already the highest in the state.

No real time forreactionwhen boat crashesIn memory of three fallen racers, competitors in the Super Boat International World Championship in Key West on Sunday removed three laps from the various races, while some teams opted to pull out completely. Super Boat spokesman Rodrick Cox said five teams of 60 entered pulled out of the Sunday finale two racers died Nov. 9 and one died Saturday mostly for mechanical concerns. However, Acouple of teams chose not to race. The only thing that was done out of respect and out of consideration was they did reduce the total number of laps. Robert Morgan and Jeffrey Tillman, of Big Thunder Marine out of Missouri, died Nov. 9 when their 46-foot Skater, with four 1,200-horsepower engines, went airborne, landing violently on its canopy. Joey Gratton died early Saturday at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami after his 38foot boat, with twin 850horsepower engines, rolled over twice on Friday.Both boats involved in the fatal wrecks were closed canopy catamarans as opposed to having open cockpits.The increased safety and the increased design work for canopies has definitely continued to progress, Cox said. He added, I dont think too many people would want to be in an open cockpit boat and [roll] because you could be ejected. Enclosed in the canopy, racers are restrained with a five-point harness similar to those used in auto racing, Cox said, and that accidents happen so quickly theres not any emergency safety protocol that could realistically be implemented. Its highly unlikely because theres typically a lot going on during a race or, for that matter, an accident. It happens so quickly. If theres a rollover, its instantaneous; theres no real time for reaction. In addition to an internal inquiry by Super Boat personnel, staff at U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigates. FWC Lt. David Dipre said their work is limited to criminal liability, like the involvement of drugs or alcohol, or intentionally reckless operation. Weve eliminated the idea of any of that, Dipre said. We dont have any evidence of careless operations above and beyond whats normally involved in high speeds. We also dont have any indication anyone was using drugs or alcohol. Coast Guard spokesman Jay Hagwood said their marine investigators would try to reconstruct the accidents through extensive interviews and examination of physical evidence like maintenance logs. The fatalities were the first ones for Key West race week since 1995, when one racer died and three others were seriously injured. The Key West races have been run for 31 years.Deadliest week in 31 years of the racesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comPOWERBOAT RACES Photo by ANDY NEWMAN/FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAUThe CMS driven by Bob Bulls of Macks Creek,Mo.,and throttled by Randy Scism of Wentzville,Mo.,speeds pass spectators during the final of three races on Sunday.CMS won a world championship in the Superboat Unlimited class,according to race officials.

Arecord number of consumers will shop from their mobile devices this coming season, according to a forecast from IBM Coremetrics, which studies online data from 500 leading U.S. retailers. And retailers seeking to tap into that trend will be forced to adapt. Its going to play a big part of how consumers are buying this holiday, said John Squire, chief strategy officer of IBM Coremetrics. Mobile users have less patience. They are surgical shoppers. Retailers are going to have to do a really good job in targeting their messages and promotions for mobile users. Amobile-device shopper spends an average of about four minutes on a site, compared to a little over seven minutes for a site visit from a regular computer. Mobile shoppers also tend to do less browsing and look at fewer products when they shop, making it more imperative for retailers to personalize messages and content to cater to such visitors. Among the retailers that have earned plaudits for targeting mobile users are department stores including Macys Inc. and J.C. Penney Co. All have launched apps based on streamlined pages specifically for mobile use, and fast downloads, designed as an alternative to conventional Web browsing, Squire said. Upscale department store Saks Inc. said it would unveil its first mobile app this holiday season. As an illustration that their online and mobile strategy has paid some dividends, the department store group has posted above-average 20 percent online sales growth in each month of the year so far. Adds Squire: Retailers that saw these trends early have made some good bets and investments. For the first time, the percentage of shoppers buying from their mobile phones is expected to rise above the double-digit threshold to 15 percent in November, compared to 4.5 percent in last years holiday season, and less than 1 percent in 2009, Squire said. In October, 9.6 percent of online shoppers made purchases through their mobile devices, up from 3.4 percent a year earlier. Its not just department stores that are catching on. Retailers across the board, from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Home Depot Inc. to Gap Inc. and Victorias Secret parent Limited Brands Inc. have been ramping up efforts to expand their online and mobile sales. Sears Holdings Corp. said earlier this week that its namesake department stores and Kmart discount chain are unveiling mobile shopping walls located in high-traffic areas, including movie theater lobbies, airports and bus stations. The spaces will display so-called QR (quickresponse) computer-generated bar-matrix codes for each featured toy so shoppers can buy directly from their smartphones. For Sears, the trend toward online sales hits home. Sears has posted declining sales in the first and second quarters as its U.S. comparable sales dropped. In comparison, its online business unit has grown 22 percent and 30 percent in those periods respectively. Increased mobile uses and purchases also have put extra pressure on retailers including electronics giant Best Buy Co. as consumers comparison shop from their mobile devices while in stores. To win over consumers doing comparison shopping and encourage early buying, Wal-Mart this holiday season will match its competitors print advertised prices between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25, a much bigger time window. The company also will match prices offered on Walmart.com if the prices are different form their store prices. Retailers also have been more proactive arming their employees with iPads or other tablet devices to better service shoppers. Sears, for instance, began rolling out iPads and iPod Touch devices in about 450 of its Sears and Kmart stores to help customers check inventory, access product information and order products online. Within the mobile arena, retailers may want to pay even more attention to iPad users. About 6.8 percent of October site visits through the iPad concluded with a purchase, compared to a 3.6 percent rate on other mobile devices, Squire said. Online sales in November are expected to rise 12 percent to 15 percent this year, IBM estimated. By comparison the National Retail Federation has forecast total holiday sales to rise just 2.8 percent. Social networks, led by Facebook, also have been an emerging factor in retail. According to the IBM data, 9.2 percent of consumers in October that came to a retailers web site from a social media site made a purchase, compared to 5.5 percent who visited the store site directly.Some retailers are creating specific appsMcClatchy-TribuneCONSUMERS BUSINESS BRIEFSStraube hosts investment programAndy Straube, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Key West, is hosting a seminar titled Social Security and Finance, at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center on the Truman Waterfront.

Drowning caused two dive deathsTwo scuba divers who died together on Crocker Reef in August were victims of accidental saltwater drowning, the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office concluded. Kevin Moss, 43, of Boca Raton and Judy Boone, 53, of Wellington died when Moss had difficulty and could not surface, according to witness accounts taken by Sheriffs Office investigators. Boone apparently died while trying to render assistance. It was the first multiple scuba-diving death in Florida Keys waters since three New Jersey divers died after getting lost deep inside the Spiegel Grove shipwreck in March 2007. Drowning is by far the most common cause of death for scuba divers. Astudy by the Divers Alert Network of 841 dive deaths over a 10year period found 61 percent were classified as drownings.However, experts at a 2010 seminar hosted by the divesafety group emphasized that dive deaths attributed to drowning often have a trigger, which U.S. Navy Capt. Jim Caruso described in a presentation as a a critical event that directly resulted in the death.The most common trigger is running out air at depth, experts said.In the August incident at Crocker Reef off Islamorada, Moss and Boone were acquaintances visiting the Keys for a dive trip to celebrate the birthday of a mutual friend.Moss suffered from Parkinsons disease and exhibited some symptoms but reportedly kept in shape and was a certified diver with hundreds of logged dives.The two were among five people diving from a private boat operated by a local captain. On a second dive to about 50 feet, Moss signaled he was very low on air and could not drop his weights to surface.Mariann Radwan tried to help Moss by using her second-stage regulator mouthpiece but could not bring him to the surface. Boone, described as a relatively inexperienced diver, then went to assist Moss by sharing her one regulator mouthpiece.Boone and Moss were not seen again until their bodies were found by Sheriffs Office divers the following day.

Turkey with Breads, Caesar Salad, Trimmings, Holiday Pie Abuse plea possibleAssistant Monroe County State Attorney Tanner Demmery says hes close to reaching a plea agreement with a Marathon man accused in May of abusing his disabled adult daughter. But the deal may not get done before a scheduled pretrial hearing Thursday for 63-year-old John Black. Hes charged with felony abuse of a disabled person and misdemeanor battery. There could be a plea on that case, Demmery said. I have not heard back from [Public Defender] Tony Barrows as to what his client is going to do. Black allegedly let his 31-year-old daughter live in her own waste and didnt feed her properly. Abartender at the American Legion in Marathon turned him in. An arrest report says the bartender told police that most days, Black shows up with his ... daughter at 9 a.m. and they stay until 11 p.m. He reportedly never changed her disposable diapers and left her in another room all day while he drank at the bar. The report says his daughter had abrasions on her chin and both knees, appeared to be very underweight and hadnt bathed in some time. The daughter was treated at Fishermens Community Hospital and taken into custody by the state Department of Children and Families. Demmery said she is staying with family on the Florida mainland.Black accused of abusing his disabled daughterBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS BLACKMentalissues arisePotential mental issues have cropped up in an attempted-murder case against a Marathon woman accused of trying to kill her infant, says the Middle Keys top prosecutor. Elizabeth Garcia, 20, was charged Aug. 26 with attempted second-degree murder of her 2-month-old daughter and carrying a concealed weapon stemming from two separate Aug. 18 incidents at the Trailerama mobile-home park at 1571 Overseas Highway. The case is scheduled for a docket sounding on Nov. 28 at 1:30 p.m. in Marathon before Judge Ruth Becker. Shes being represented by Public Defender Anthony Barrows. From our last discussion, theres some mental issues being followed up on, said Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Tanner Demmery.According to the Sheriffs Office, Garcia threatened to hit her daughter with a piece of concrete stone during an argument with several neighbors. The report says a cell-phone video shows witnesses Orlando and Alexis Mendoza ultimately restrained Garcia and pried the baby from her arms as she brought her left hand down forcefully in the direction of the childs face. Demmery said hes seen the video.It certainly captures the behavior to that effect. Its kind of a blurry cell-phone video. I think you can surmise whats going on and the tone of the argumentation, he said.It wasnt until later the same day that deputies reported to the scene, when Garcia attempted to take the baby from an unknown trailer. Police reportedly attempted to restrain Garcia, who attempted to pull a knife from her waistband. Garcia, whose actions the state Department of Children and Families reported to the Sheriffs Office after receiving a tip, is being held with no bond at the Monroe County Detention Center.Woman charged with trying to kill her babyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS GARCIAUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

They, along with increasing numbers of sailfish, are spraying ballyhoo. The sailfish action will escalate with each passing cold front. Anglers dropping on the wrecks report significant bite-offs due to the presence of kingfish in the 10to 20pound class.

The yellowtail snapper and grouper bite remains consistent, with lots of cero and Spanish mackerel mixed in the chum slicks. On the patch reefs, mangrove snapper is the main target, with some nice muttons showing here, as well. Freshly caught live ballyhoo are the trick to catching the largest mangroves and muttons. The channel humps are coming to life with loads of mackerel, snapper of all variety, some good keeper grouper and, most recently, lots of jack crevalle.

Chris Johnson CaptainsColumn See Fishing,2BLady Dolphins move to .500Abit of formation tinkering helped the Marathon High School girls soccer team rebound Friday from a sub-par performance the day before. The Dolphins (2-2) fell behind early, but scored three unanswered goals to beat a solid Pine Crest School team, 3-2. We made some adjustments on Friday and the girls played much, much better. We played more of a defensive style and counter attacked, coach Lynn Landry. Landry said he moved junior Taylor Konrath back to an attacking midfielder position, essentially playing with one forward. Fellow junior Katie Landry played a holding midfielder, allowing her to solidify the Dolphinsdefense. Eighth-grader Sacha Olivera started in goal for the Dolphins and made a number of solid saves. She played keeper for us and had a very good game; she made some nice stops for us, coach Landry said. Like in Thursdays loss to Doral, Marathon put itself in an early hole Friday after surrendering a pair of goals in the opening minutes. The Dolphins trailed 2-0 before the 20:00 water break. But the girls responded with a pair of goals late in the first half to tie the game at 2-2. In the 36th minute, Regan Durkin sent a through ball to Savannah Rodamer, who scored to make it 2-1. The Dolphins scored on another through ball from Katie Landry to Konrath just before the half. We didnt give up. Thursday, we had a bit of a letdown after they scored their goals and on Friday they didnt. Were still working on our timing, but I was very happy with the way we played on Friday, coach Landry said. He said the pace of play was back and forth until late in the second half, when Rodamer was fouled inside the 18-yard box. Marathon was awarded a penalty kick that Katie Landry converted to give the girls a 3-2 lead. The Dolphins were scheduled to play Somerset Academy Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. The team is slated to host Westwood Christian School Friday at 6 p.m. at the high school.

But its hard for coach Kevin Freeman to tell how itll come together, since most of the team was wrapping up the 2011 football season as hoops practice was under way. So Ill have them for four or five practices before our first game, he said. The team, 7-16 last year, will rely heavily on its only seniors, Dwayne Ellis and Trevelle Beckford. Dwayne wants to play in college, so this is his final hurrah. He likes playing the wing but hes going to have to play down low. Hes a pretty good post player and were counting on his toughness, Freeman said. Trevelle has the biggest heart on the team. This is their senior year and theyll give it all theyve got. Sophomores Jesse DeLuca and Dominic Cavitt are the only returning players with experience at the varsity level. Promoted from the junior varsity ranks are sophomore guards Damian Chavez and Shemar Fantroy, as well as freshman guard Nelson Rojas. Even with several players being promoted, Freeman said the middle school and junior varsity squads have numerous talented players. Weve got 19 kids out between middle school and JV, and thats what weve been working with a lot. The kids are working hard and theres a lot of eighthand ninth-graders that will be with the program for the next several years, he said.

Pine Crest, green-clad and visiting from Fort Lauderdale, didnt threaten to score at all. The Conchs had their chances, but were kept at bay by the booming goal kicks of keeper Amber Clark. Late in the half, Conch sophomore Devin Mitchell drilled a close-in shot right into Clarks hands that prompted her father, crouched on the sideline to suggest, Devin, just control it in. It was 0-0 at intermission, and the fans, who were not in great number despite it being a beautiful day, meandered to the tiny concession stand for chips and Cokes. About seven minutes into the second half, Key Wests Lauren Schoneck made a corner throw-in that bounced off a Pine Crest player to sophomore Libby Isherwood, who was standing near the goal. Isherwood kicked the ball past Clark for a 1-0 Conch lead. It was only her second career goal (I had one last year, she said later with a smile that exhibited dazzling braces.) Key West coach Scott Paul had abandoned his usual position near the Conch bench and was now on the opposite sideline with the spectators, leaving the coaching to his assistant, Megan McCart. Im not in a good mood, he said, adding, And I can get a better perspective over here. Asoccer ball was tucked under his right arm and a water bottle was in his left hand. I painted the field, so I might as well be a ball person, he said, looking professorial even in T-shirt and shorts. The Conchs began to hustle and put more pressure on Clark.. Isherwood had a chance to score again but popped a shot over the goal. Kendall Galvan launched a hard shot You dont have to kill the ball to score, you have to aim it, Paul would advise the team after the game but it was straight at Clark, who was as sure-handed as she was strong-footed. Time began to run out, the vultures returned briefly, and Key Wests 1-0 lead was still precarious. With about a minute left, a hand ball was called on the Conchs deep in their end. Are you kidding me? screamed McCart, a former Conch player. How can you call that from that side of the field? The referee, a yellow card in his hand, marched over to McCart and said, This is your second yellow. Leave. As McCart walked away, Pine Crests Amanda Miller was awarded a free kick from about 20 yards. It sailed high over Conch keeper Angela Martin, and a second later, the final whistle blew, giving Key West a 1-0 victory. Pine Crest, which had lost to Marathon on Friday night, fell to 0-5, and the Conchs improved to 2-2. They will play Pompano Beach at 8 p.m. Friday and Mourning at 2 Saturday afternoon. Both games will be at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.Little offense for 2-2 squadKEY WEST SOCCER By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Raquel Schoneck tries unsuccessfully to head-in a goal Saturday against Pine Crest.

(305) 743-5551 LivingHGTV puts Keys homes in spotlightWhen HGTVCanada wanted to show a fantasy lifestyle, they headed for the Florida Keys. Aproduction crew working on an upcoming series called Live Here, Buy This! shot video at two Upper Keys homes Friday and Saturday to show potential newcomers the local real estate market and lifestyle. Just the fact that HGTV came to film our home was a real honor, Key Largo homeowner Gretta Ramirez said. Were big fans of the channel and we had a very good time with the crew. Live Here, Buy This! is scheduled to air in the fall 2012 season on HGTV Canada, said Andrea Griffith, production executive for Shaw Media Television. But HGTVs United States channel has picked up series from Canada before and could add Live Here, Buy This! to its lineup, she said. Its a fantasy show that asks: If people had a chance to live in their dream location, could they do it? Griffith said. The premise asks people about a place where they have fantasized about living, then shows them homes there that they could afford if they sell their existing residence. David and Gretta Ramirez of Kendall bought their canalfront Ellen Drive property in February and recently put it on the market for around $600,000 after extensive landscaping and some remodeling, Gretta said. Son David, 7, was enlisted as a volunteer member of the HBTVcrew, pulling video cables while the crew taped a tour of the bayside property not far from John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo. Upper Keys real estate broker Natalia Boblitt of Shoreline Properties pointed out features of the two-story home, including a tiled Jacuzzi and upstairs patio, to series co-host Vivianne Collins, a veteran of Nickelodeon game shows and other television work. ALake Road residence on Plantation Key with the same approximate value also was toured by the series video crew from JVProductions. We took the crew on a boating tour to give them a really good sense of how the Keys are all about the water and outdoors, Boblitt said. We want to let the world know were here because a lot of people think Florida is just Mickey Mouse and South Beach, she said. Our main objective is to get people down here to help our industry and economy. The series crew also has filmed dream homes in France and Portugal, and plans another Florida Keys visit. Its going to be a very exciting show along the lines of House Hunters International, Griffith said. Were showing people that its possible to enjoy their ideal location and lifestyle, she said. It could turn possible dream into probable.Live Here episode to air in fall 2012UPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Keynoter photos by KEVIN WADLOWAn HGTV cameraman videos Upper Keys real estate broker Natalia Boblitt (left) and Vivianne Collins,co-host of an upcoming HGTV Canada series called Live Here,Buy That!This home to be featured on the show is in Key Largo.LIVING BRIEFSBook club talks Woman at LightThe Marathon Library Book Discussion Group meets on Dec. 2 at the Marathon library at 10 a.m. to discuss Woman at the Light by Key West author Joanna Schmida.
