WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,NOVEMBER 30,2011 VOLUME 58,NO.96 25 CENTS Earnings rise The parent company of Centennial Bank reports good profits for the third quarter of the year.Story, 4A Basketball opens The Key West High School hoops team starts its season today with plenty of expectations.Story, 1B The failed Marlin Bay sells for$15MThe unfinished Marlin Bay Yacht Club one of the housing booms biggest Florida Keys busts and certainly the biggest in Marathon has been sold for $15 million. Thats a far cry from the $220 million luxury bayside development planned on Louisa Street on the site of the former Gulfstream Trailer Park. Developer L.M. Sandler and Sons evicted the 80 RVand mobile-home residents in 2004 to make way for the walled-in community. Its certainly a big deal. I would think its the biggest real estate deal in the Keys this year, said Brian Schmitt, broker at Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate who was not involved in the sale. Records with the Monroe County Clerks Office show the sale closed on Nov. 16, when a warranty deed with the consideration amount of $15 million was agreed to between Marlin Bay Yacht Club LLC of Stuart as the grantee and Continental Real Estate Co. as the grantor. Continental brokered the deal as a bank foreclosure. According to county Property Appraiser Karl Borglum, the value of Marlin Bays developed land is $7,895,667 and the value of its vacant land is $5,569,585 for a total of $13,469,152, which is 90 percent of the sale price. Were going to continue to develop it, said William Anderson, managing member of Marlin Bay Yacht Club LLC. My clients are already in the process of cleaning the existing units.New owner plans to finish building luxury complexBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comMARATHONPython captured in KCBIts hard to move your car when a 7-foot Burmese python is blocking the driveway.Thats what a group of German visitors discovered when they approached the garage at the Monte Christo Condos in Key Colony Beach on Nov. 12. They went down to get their car out of the garage and it was sunning itself across the whole width of the garage, condo manager John Fairbank said. Fairbank said the Linn family called police, which led Officer Charles Griffith to the scene. He pulled the snake out of the bushes with his hands.He was not a friendly snake; he was trying to bite the whole time, Griffith said.He and some members of the Linn family coerced the snake into a large trash can with the help of a shuffleboard stick. Once he was out in the open, the trash can looked attractive to hide in, Griffith said. Griffith turned the snake over to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers, who in turn got it to U.S. Geological Survey wildlife biologist Ron Rozar in Key Largo. Rozar heads the states python trapping initiative and told the Keynoter the male snake was euthanized. Anecropsy is planned at Everglades National Park. With Burmese pythons, the state requires a permit to own one. Its not an animal you could potentially adopt out, he said. Were interested in what type of impact theyre having. Well look at stomach contents and reproductive status. Rozar said its impossible to tell for sure, but that given the location, the snake most likely escaped captivity or was released on the island. Because of the distance from Key Colony Beach to the nearest known population, its almost certainly not a disperser, he said. Exotic snakes are a huge problem in the Everglades. Burmese pythons can reach 26 feet long prey on native species. They number in the thousands in the Everglades and have spread south to the Key Largo area.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACH Photo courtesy JOHN FRANKKey Colony Beach Police Officer Charles Griffith coaxes a 7-foot Burmese python into a trash can Nov.12 at the Monte Christo Condos on West Ocean Drive.Helping is Christian Linn,an annual guest from Cuxhaven,Germany, who found the snake sunning beside his car.Dick:Give city Glynn ArcherKey West Mayor Craig Catesplan to transform Glynn Archer Elementary School into a new Key West city hall has new life: Monroe County School Board Chairman John Dick wants to just give the building to the city. There would be only one string attached: The city letting the School District park buses at city-owned land on Stock Island. I want to make that deal, Dick said. I dont want any money from them. I cant see winding up with another abandoned building for the School District like the Harris School, which was sold to a developer. I wont be party to that. The district now parks its Lower Keys buses at Trumbo Point in Old Town Key West. But an 800-day reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard is scheduled to start in April, and that would cause major transportation issues for the district. Cates pitched Glynn Archer, on White Street, as a new city hall shared with School District offices more than two years, when he was running for his first term in office. The plan was derailed by the two sidesinability to come up with a deal, including a purchase price and how joint use would work. Dicks proposal to give the city Glynn Archer in exchange for parking privileges has culminated in a memorandum of understanding, drafted by City Attorney Shawn Smith, that Dick said he would present to the School Board at a Dec. 13 meeting beginning at 3 p.m. at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier.Dick said that down the road, if the district wants to move its offices from Trumbo Road to Glynn Archer, there would be space available, as city offices would occupy only the two buildings closest to White Street.The auditorium would be converted into a public meeting space available to the School Board and Key West City Commission; the gym and art buildings would stay as is until the district wanted to make a move.In return for elementary school, city would allow bus parkingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST MYSTERY MONSTERS Whew! Season ends with little impactFor the sixth straight year, Monroe County and the whole of Florida were spared major impact from tropical weather systems during hurricane season, which began June 1 and ends today. In fact, despite a sixmonth season comprising 19 tropical storms and seven hurricanes, at no point were the Keys covered by tropical watches or warnings, according to meteorologists at the National Weather Services Key West office.The United States experienced three landfalls this year: Tropical Storm Don in late July, Hurricane Irene in late August and Tropical Storm Lee in early September.Irene, the most damaging storm to hit the U.S. this year, first hit the Outer Banks of North Carolina, then continued up the East Coast, leaving behind more than 50 deaths and damage estimated between $5 billion and $10 billion.Although some researchers have tried to explain why so many storms seemed to track toward the North Atlantic, local National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Rothwell said the supporting science just isnt there.Basically, we lucked out, he said Theres many oscillations you can blame it on but, as of now, the science isnt good enough to tell you most of the tracks are going to go out to sea, head east or come in to the gulf. Despite having little impact on the Keys, the 2011 season tied with last year, 1995 and 1887 as the third busiest on record. The last major hurricane, measuring Category 3 or higher on the SaffirSimpson wind scale with sustained winds between 111 mph and 130 mph, to hit the U.S. was HurricaneKeys escape severe storms for 6th yearBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comHURRICANE SEASONSee Marlin,3ASee Hurricanes,3ASee Archer,3A Vets on the moveThe Marathon Veterinary Hospital is expanding and moving down the highway.

The group will cross the Monroe-Miami-Dade line on U.S. 1 about 11 a.m., then will be escorted by Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies to the Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina at Holiday Isle at mile marker 84 oceanside. As the motorcycles pass intersections on the highway, the intersections will be closed until the entire group passes. I ask that people be patient during this event. Closures will be short term and should not impact traffic too much. This event raises money for a terrific cause and should not cause too much trouble for the traveling public, Sheriffs Office Capt. Don Fanelli said. The ride raises money for the children of police officers killed in the line of duty in South Florida.

The public charter high schools board of directors hired Principal Ashley Roberts in late October to replace Debra Remsen, who helped launch the first-year institution and was ostensibly ousted by the board due to a lack of experience in education administration. Board Chairman Winnie Dement said of the threedozen candidates, Roberts, being paid $50,000 annually, stood out over a series of interviews based on her previous experience working in so-called schools of choice. She is working to fix all of our issues and move the school forward, Dement said. We feel like its really working out perfectly. The school is a different place already. The only thing I could wish for is that she was with us from the beginning. The Key West Collegiate is a public charter, meaning it receives state funding but operates outside traditional public education requirements like standardized testing and curriculum benchmarks; enrollment is open but bus service isnt available and parental involvement is required. Roberts, a Connecticut native, formerly headed the St. Augustine School in West Hartford; she taught for more than a decade, focusing on special education and gifted students, then served as a middle school vice principal and principal of the DiLoreto Magnet School.Working in Key West is a dream come true for any New Englander, Roberts said.Ive always been drawn to very active parent participation, the ability to develop programs and create dynamic programs. What drew me to the Collegiate School is that its the first collegiate high school [in the Keys] and I like to be on the ground floor when things are being formed.She has introduced a new Friday homeroom activity designed to create a sense of community by allowing student government representatives, herself and other speakers the opportunity for one-on-one interaction Were such a small school, we wanted to work on the invisible part of our curriculum, which is the school community. Roberts holds a bachelors degree in fine arts and a masters in special education from the University of Hartford.Roberts takes over leadership at CollegiateBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSPanel releases redistricting mapsThe state Senates Reapportionment Committee has released a rough draft of new political maps for the states Senate and congressional districts, giving politicians and interest groups their first look at an official effort to redraw Floridas political boundaries. Months ahead of past redistricting schedules and after the most open, transparent and interactive process in Florida history, the Senate committee has produced a product which is fair, sensible and faithful to the law, Reapportionment Chairman Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, said in a prepared statement. But the maps, produced by the staff of Gaetzs committee as part of the once-adecade redistricting process, were already running into resistance from Democrats and groups that expected to benefit more from the linedrawing exercise. Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith laid into the maps, saying they ignore the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments approved by voters last year. Today, Florida Republicans have taken a state which experts have long considered one of the most malapportioned states in the country and worsened it, Smith said. In doing so, they have chosen to thwart the will of 63 percent of Florida voters by proposing maps that are aimed at incumbent protection and partisan advantage the very things which Floridas Constitution now prohibits. Smith pointed out that, among other things, the map radically recasts the district held by Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich, D-Weston, a member of the Reapportionment Committee who is leaving office next year because of term limits. Richs district would move from central Miami-Dade and southern Broward counties to encompass western Palm Beach and Broward counties. The district, which went for Democrat Alex Sink by 17 points in the 2010 gubernatorial election, still appears to be reliably Democratic. But the committees map would appear to be more favorable to GOPincumbents. By BRANDON LARRABEENews Service of FloridaOVERLINE ROBERTS K E Y SNET.CO M

No money would change hands, he said. Im sure we would have the support if theres no purchase price.Previous joint-use scenarios had the city shelling out around $20 million to redo Glynn Archer for city and district offices. Its not clear what the new cost would be.The other option is to rebuild City Hall at 525 Angela St., its current location. Architect Michael Ingram has drawn up plans that would build the administrative complex, a new fire station and three-story parking garage for around $21.5 million. Commissioner Teri Johnston, perhaps the most outspoken critic of the Glynn Archer concept, said no purchase price would change the game, but wants to see specifics before commenting further. She did point out that the original construction estimate for Angela Street was in the $18 million range, but the price had gone up with years of indecision.On the cost of rehabbing 82-year-old Glynn Archer: What we do know is its going to be more than the original number anyone came up with no matter if you agree with that number or not.Long-term district plans call for the approximately 300 Glynn Archer students to move into a new school on the Horace OBryant Middle School campus.Cates hopefulFrom Archer,1A Wilma in 2005, which caused widespread flooding from storm surge throughout the Keys. This was Rothwells first experience with hurricane season in the Keys, although he previously worked on Floridas Treasure Coast and went through the devastating Hurricane Andrew in 1992. My wife and I were both worried about an evacuation, he said, but fortunately we were able to stay home.Rothwell said the next step for staff at the National Weather Service, a division of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, is to compile all data available from the past season and produce a comprehensive post-season analysis.Another storm season passesFrom Hurricanes,1A Were working to transfer all of our permits. In probably February or March, we might have a grand opening. When the Marathon City Council approved the project in July 2005, L.M. Sandler and Sons planned 84 homes ranging from $1.6 million to $4 million, with the largest being 6,432 square feet, plus eight affordable units, a 99-slip marina, a pool and a 7,600-square-foot clubhouse with business and fitness centers. Building stopped in May 2008, when construction workers, vendors and others walked off the job, saying they werent being paid. Just 13 homes, 65 slips, the clubhouse and pool were completed. Of the 13 homes, just two were in contract, and those were voided. Sandler officials had blamed it on a banks failure to complete a large loan. One called it a bump in the road and expected the project to get restarted fairly quickly. That never happened. The sale clearly indicates there are buyers out there who see a bright future for these kinds of developments or else they wouldnt be plunking down $15 million in cash or whatever the number is, Schmitt said. As far as Marathon is concerned, it gets a property thats been languishing to one that now has someone who can shepherd it along and complete it. Its gone from whats a failed development to what could be a successful development. Well be spending the next 30 to 60 days trying to determine what the market is, Anderson said. Surprisingly, some of the people who were interested previously remain interested. Since the city of Marathon has an approved development agreement for the property, the buyer has to work within its parameters, city Planning Director George Garrett has said. When the housing bubble burst in the mid-2000s, at least 18 Keys projects worth more than $1 billion combined came to a screeching halt, according to the Miami Herald .New owner measuring marketFrom Marlin,1A Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThe Marlin Bay Yacht Club was touted as being one of the most luxurious developments in the Keys.However,no one ever lived there.The new owners plan to restart construction.

Forty-one percent of consumers report they will spend less this holiday than a year ago, with a mere 8 percent expected to open their wallets more, according to an annual survey by the Consumer Federation of America and the Credit Union National Association. Some of these frugal consumers have good reason to cut back. Of the 1,011 adults surveyed by the groups this month, 37 percent say they are financially worse off now than they were a year ago. Of course, retailers arent ready to concede defeat. Theyre pulling out lots of gimmicks and sales to entice shoppers into the stores. As usual, many of us will wind up spending more than we want, despite our intentions.We all tend to give ourselves a pass when it comes to the holiday season, said John Ulzheimer, president of consumer education for SmartCredit.com. Some people will spend more between Black Friday and the first of the year than they spent the entire previous year.To avoid damaging your finances this holiday, here are some tips:Plan ahead: Draw up a budget of how much you can afford to shell out during the holiday and how much you can spend on each person. Make a list of what you need to buy before going shopping. Go without a list, and youre more likely to meander through stores, picking up items you dont need.Also, research prices before hitting the stores so you know whether the retailer is offering you a deal or not.Keep track: While shopping, periodically tally your purchases to make sure you remain on budget.Always know where you are with your spending, said Gail Cunningham, spokeswoman for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. If you overspend on Uncle Harry, you will have to cut back on Aunt Hazel.If paying by credit card, put all purchases on one card. Spreading purchases across multiple cards can make you feel that you havent done as much damage, Cunningham said. And choose your shopping companions carefully.We are often influenced by the other people shopping with us, said Robin McKinney, director of the Maryland CASH Campaign. If youre not as disciplined as you would like to be, shop with someone who is, McKinney said.No new store credit: Retailers will be aggressively pitching plastic this holiday by offering 15 percent to 20 percent off on purchases if you sign up for a new store card, Ulzheimer warned. And for someone spending $1,000, he said, the idea of saving $200 up front is compelling. Thats where the benefit to the consumer ends, he said. From that point forward, the terms are tilted in the issuers favor. Store cards come with high interest rates 20 percent to 29 percent no matter what your credit score, Ulzheimer said. And if you carry a balance for a month or two, you will wipe out any discount you received for opening the card. Even if you dont carry a balance, he added, opening new lines of credit can damage your credit score for a number of reasons. For instance, your score will drop if you have multiple retailers checking your credit report, and these inquiries will affect your score for the next 12 months, Ulzheimer said. If youre planning to refinance or buy a new car in that time, he said, you could end up paying a slightly higher interest rate that will add up to big bucks on major transactions.Prepare for next year: When all the bills come in after the holidays, add up how much you spent. Divide that number by 10, Cunningham said. Then, she said, set aside that amount in a savings account for the next 10 months so that when the holiday season comes around again, youll have money in the bank to pay for it.Make a budget, make sure you stick to itMcClatchy-TribunePERSONAL FINANCE BUSINESS BRIEFSCPA group chief gives Keys updateStam Stahis, president of the Florida Institute of CPAs, will be in Key West on Dec. 5 to update Keys certified public accountants and anyone else interested on whats happening in the national, state and local economies as it impacts CPAs and their clients.

EDITORIALTroubled waters in leadershipLETTERS TO THE EDITORFulfill FKAA contractI heard that Jim Reynolds has resigned as executive director of the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority. He was replaced by Kirk Zuelch at the same meeting. The report also said that his resignation was immediate and that he would be paid his full salary with benefits until his contract ends in March. I can only assume that Mr. Zuelch will have a similar salary and benefits.I am sure that the citizens of Monroe County expect the Aqueduct Authority to operate as a fiscally responsible organization and do not understand why the citizens should absorb the extra expense of two persons at about $ 177,000 per year for the next three months when only one should be paid. This is a loss of about $44,000, not including benefits, over the threemonth period. I think Mr. Reynolds should continue in his duties until his contract has expired before we employ Mr. Zuelch, or he should waive his salary and benefits. I am sure that Mr. Zuelch can assume the duties as director when the contract of Mr. Reynolds expires without any transition training due to his experience with the Aqueduct Authority (the reason he was appointed without a search). This is public money being spent and our officials should respect the hard-earned tax dollars, especially for highly paid executives. Charles D. Eidschun Summerland KeyResponse is quickWe would like to thank the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and Barnes Alarm Systems for their quick response to our business alarm. Afew weeks back, we were notified at 4:45 a.m. that our alarm was going off and that someone had tried to kick in the back door. The Sheriffs Office arrived on the scene within a matter of minutes and secured the building until we could arrive. Nothing was stolen thanks to them. Thanks to them again for their hard work and dedication.

Angee Quinones Key LargoReynoldsdeparture from FKAA raises questions, infighting at the sewer board looms largeIt was hardly a typical Thanksgiving week in the Keys. On Nov. 22, nine-year Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Executive Director Jim Reynolds resigned his $177,000-a-year post. The water utility boards longtime attorney, Kirk Zuelch, who was state attorney in these parts a long, long time ago, replaced him. Meanwhile, theres a brewing contretemps between the head of the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District and its chief financial officer. E-mail exchanges between district chief Margaret Blank and CFO Sal Zappulla display a sharp edge that cuts both ways. Zappulla, hired last year after losing his job in 2007 as Monroe Countys top budget manager, actually told his boss that if the two were ever going to work together in harmony, you are going to have to put yourself in my shoes.... Blanks response doesnt leave much to the imagination: I have put myself in your shoes. In fact, Ive carried quite a bit of your load. Im moving forward and youre stuck in the past. Whew. Although not as openly testy, apparently theres been some kind of friction between Reynolds and the Aqueduct Authoritys internal auditor, who managed to get a deputy position created by the board. Did we mention the newly hired deputy, for $49,816 annually, happens to be the sister of board member Brian Barroso? She beat out 174 other applicants, of which 15 were interviewed. Must have been a pretty impressive interview. There are larger questions about this, of course, not the least of which is how the Aqueduct Authoritys top post was vacated and filled at the same meeting. Was there any prior discussion among board members? Hopefully not, since that would be in violation of FloridaSunshine Law governing opening government. Board member David Ritz, the lone dissenter when the change in management was rubberstamped, raised objections, noting the importance of filling the top administrative position through a professional and thorough search process. The board chairman, Robert Dean, said Zuelch has been in training all the time but we didnt know what for. What? And it was clear that Ritz wasnt going to get an answer to his question about why the auditor was presenting agenda items to the board for action a role normally reserved for the executive director. Theres far more than meets the eye about the doings at the Aqueduct Authority and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District. Stay tuned, as they say. Turkey for everyoneOn Nov. 19, Keys Area Interdenominational Resources held its happy-holidays program at the Jaycees building in Marathon. Two hundred and fifty local families that are struggling to make ends meet received a turkey, a pie and all the fruits and vegetables and fixings to make a their own holiday meal.

Myths and misinformation continue to swirl around Floridas water management districts and their ability to do their job with lower revenues and smaller organizations. In South Florida, unfounded concerns have been expressed about the future of Everglades restoration, the capacity of our district scientists and the erosion of our regulatory authority. The facts can alleviate these unwarranted fears.The establishment of Floridas five water management districts is firmly rooted in statute. In Florida, water is a public resource. The districts were specifically created by the Water Resources Act in 1972 to manage and protect the states waters on behalf of our citizens. For four decades we have fulfilled our responsibilities of managing water supply, water quality, flood protection and natural systems in the public interest through a solid regulatory framework, governing boards appointed by the governor and state oversight through the Department of Environmental Protection. This framework has not changed.The South Florida Water Management District, which includes the Keys, is indeed building a leaner, more efficient agency by eliminating unnecessary expenses and getting back to its core mission. In doing so, we are saving South Floridians $128 million through a 30 percent tax reduction, the majority of which was realized by cutting overhead and administrative costs. This is welcomed news for taxpayers who expect costeffective services, government transparency and accountability in spending.The district continues to be a dynamic agency, providing more than 1,600 jobs across the region. Close to half of these jobs are dedicated to operating South Floridas massive flood control system. To support water resource protection and environmental restoration, more than 25 percent of our workforce holds Ph.D. or masters degrees, and we have more than 150 certified professional engineers and geologists on staff. This highly qualified, capable and competent workforce is focused on efficiently achieving the agencys water management responsibilities. The districts $576.1 million budget is being used to deliver tangible, meaningful results. For fiscal year 2012, more than 70 percent of the budget will go toward flood control and restoring the South Florida ecosystem. With a combined investment of more than $850 million in 2011 and 2012, we will be completing construction on a half dozen restoration projects.And over the next five years, the district will use financial reserves to invest another $350 million toward developing and protecting the water resources of this state and to improving the Everglades, Lake Okeechobee and the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee watersheds.Our appointed governing board is highly engaged and actively guiding the agencys work. Representing diverse South Florida interests, these volunteers have oversight of District activities and provide policy direction on all issues, including regulatory functions. The district continues to scrutinize permit applications to ensure water resource protection, and we share with DEPthe objective of improved statewide consistency while recognizing our regional diversity. There is no effort to weaken our standards. These facts do not represent the actions of a disabled water management district. Just the opposite. They are the actions of a government agency true to its founding principles, clearly focused on its mission, streamlined in its internal operations and delivering efficient and cost-effective water resource management. Joe Collins is chairman of the South Florida Water Management Districts governing board, holding an at-large position representing Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry, Highlands, Glades, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola and Polk counties. Hes a vice president for Lykes Bros. Inc.Water Management District is streamlined, efficient COLLINSCounty questions hotel unitsMarathon officials shouldnt expect to have Monroe County in their corner when they go before the state Cabinet in January to give a required annual update on how the city is progressing with sewer construction.As part of being designated an Area of Critical State Concern, the state requires Marathon, Islamorada and Monroe County to appear before the Cabinet each year to specify progress made on state-mandated work plans centered on installing central sewers, along with other environmental issues.The next updates are scheduled for Jan. 11, with Cabinet aides, and Jan. 18 with the Cabinet itself, in Tallahassee.The county objects to the state Department of Economic Opportunity recommending given Marathon 100 hotelroom permit allocations. The state says Marathon can also borrow forward from future allocations for another 100.According to DEO Executive Director Doug Darling, its for the citys unprecedented progress in constructing central sewers. But concern voiced by the County Commission at its Nov. 16 meeting led County Administrator Roman Gastesi to send a letter to Darling questioning the states logic in awarding the new units to Marathon.According to county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley, the confusion revolves around an incomplete update to the states hurricane evacuation model developed by the Department of Emergency Management.The state published the results of that model a year ago and [the then-Department of Community Affairs] had them do a specific model for Monroe County so they could see what it does for our evacuation times, Hurley said. Hurley said the new model shows the Keys could handle more transient units, mainly because the old model accounts for an overlap in the number of hotel guests evacuating. That means the model assumes every transient unit will be vacated 48 hours before a storm arrives.The state is supposed to, by July 2012, come down to the county and get a memo of understanding with each local government on what the assumptions we all agree on are. Then they would [say] how many units can be built Keyswide and make it out of the Keys prior to the 24-hour time limit, Hurley said. That hasnt happened yet, which led the county to question the states decision. The various municipalities have their own work program. Well be commenting on our work program, but the letter basically asks how did this decision come to bear? Gastesi said. Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt defended the states decision, saying the citys sewer system is nearly complete. I agree were not over the finish line, but we can see it and they cant yet, he said. Monroe County has yet to break ground on a $156 million Lower Keys sewer system that would cover roughly 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key. The countys letter to DEO points out its sewered the majority of other unincorporated areas such as Stock Island, Bay Point and Big Coppitt.State to give Marathon 100 for sewer workBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BACK TO THE WILDThis great white heron flies to freedom at mile marker 75 on Nov.21 after being released by the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier.The bird was found on Nov. 16 wrapped in fishing line at Coral Bay Resorts.Center volunteers responded to the call and found the bird had a treble hook embedded in his chest and the line had become wrapped around his neck and feet,making him immobile.After a brief stay at the center,where the bird received antibiotics to prevent infection,it was let go.

HappyHolidays! Vet hospital moving, expandingLongtime Middle Keys veterinarian Doug Mader is one step closer to the dream hospital he always imagined. The Marathon Planning Commission on Nov. 21 approved Maders plan to move his Marathon Veterinary Hospital from 11187 Overseas Highway, across from Burger King, into the former Boaters World building on U.S. 1 near mile marker 50. Boaters World closed in 2009. Barring any unforeseen setback at a tentatively scheduled Dec. 13 hearing before the City Council, Mader will move his five doctors and 23 employees from a 2,200-square-foot building into a refurbished state-of-the-art 6,000square-foot facility. Were hoping to be in there by October of next year, he said. It takes about four months to get the actual plans approved.... Once we get that approved, itll be another four or five months to get the building built. Mader and his wife, Dr. Gerry Diethelm, took the practice over in 1999 from Dr. Jim Greene and its since grown into a thriving practice. Weve been talking about this for five years and our plans all along had been to buy the property next to us [and] expand our current building, but it would have been a major disruption and parking would have been a problem. The new building has the footprint and the approved number of parking spaces, he said. Mader hired New Mexico-based architect Wayne Usiak, whom Mader said has built more than 770 veterinary hospitals. Hes the premier veterinary architect in the country. We decided to go with the top guy because we wanted it done right. Thats our goal, to bring the most state-ofthe-art hospital we can to the Keys, Mader said. He said the new building will have at least six exam rooms up from three as well as modern surgical and dental suites, and even an acupuncture/holistic room. There are also at least 23 parking spots, as opposed to five now. There are also plans for a secure outdoor yard for the animals. Mader was clear the area would not be for outdoor boarding. We have never had any plans to do that. Itll be soundproof walls with landscaping to make it look really nice. The idea is if we have to take a dog outside for exercise or to go potty, we can, he said. Theyre never outside unattended. Mader said the popular mural done by artist OFarrill on the buildings east side would remain intact. The storefront would be landscaped and a new facade installed. The Dec. 13 council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.

Cops: No beer leads to hatchet attackAMarathon man remained in jail on $175,000 bond on Tuesday after reportedly attacking a man with a hatchet because no one would give him any more beer, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Deputy Becky Herrin says Maykel Borges, 32, had been going to a friends place in the Trailerama mobile-home park on 15th Street all day Friday asking for beer. Witnesses said they gave him several beers all day but when they told him the last time to go away and leave them alone, he left, then returned with a hatchet.He began arguing with people at the trailer, Herrin said, then swung the hatchet at one man, cutting him on the side. Borges then dropped the weapon and left.When deputies arrived just after 6 p.m., they recovered the hatchet and found Borges at his own trailer, not far away. He was arrested, charged with felony aggravated assault and aggravated battery, and booked into jail. The victim was treated for a small cut. It wasnt immediately known what kind of beer Borges wanted.In May, a Trailerama resident, Fidel Gutierrez, was charged with attempted murder for allegedly attacking his trailermate with a machete. The reason, authorities say: He didnt take kindly to being asked to move out. That case is pending.

I was told he is not still the coach, and that Tez Waters will take over the basketball program, athletic director Ralph Henriquez said Tuesday morning. Principal Amber Bosco said Fabal decided to step down on his own. Waters, who was the JV coach and Fabals assistant, has been a basketball director with the Key West Police Athletic League. Fabal, 62, a math teacher who played basketball at Key West High in the 1960s, volunteered to be the coach in late summer after few people expressed interest in the job, which was vacated when last seasons coach, Pam Smith, decided not to return. The girls basketball program has long been marred by temperamental players and angry incidents of parental interference, including one that occurred in the Conchsseason opener on Nov. 19 against West Boca Raton at the Bobby Menendez Gym. In that game, a 48-46 loss, senior Shaniya Watson, the teams best player, slammed her hand against the gym wall while screaming in pain after she left the floor late in the third quarter because of leg cramps. Waters and Fabal both left the bench and went to a corner of the gym where they tried to calm Watson. A man related to the player charged across the court toward Fabal and yelled, Keep your [expletive] hands off her. Fabal then told an assistant principal to eject the man from the gym. I put my hands on her shoulders and tried to talk to her, Fabal said after the game. Bosco said that the incident had nothing to do with Fabals decision. Efforts to reach Fabal on Tuesday were unsuccessful.Resignation comes after defeat to West Boca RatonBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALL FISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSTed Duma,Jim Roff and Ted Sander show their catch of dolphin and mutton snapper caught with SeaSquared Charters on the day before Thanksgiving.Target the sails, dolphinNow that youve had your fill of turkey, its time to get back to the fishing, and it seems the wind has decided to give us a bit of a break. The latest cold front brought winds out of the northerly direction, which should spur on the sailfish bite. There were quite a few dolphin around before and during last weeks blow. Hopefully the abundance of ballyhoo will hold them and theyll get up in the shallows alongside the sailfish. The wrecks are still holding quite a few mutton snapper as well as amberjack and some mid-size kingfish. Live ballyhoo are the baits of choice for the sailfish and dolphin, as well as the wreck fishing. The snapper bite continues to be very good on the reef and outside patches. There are plenty of yellowtails providing action on the deeper side of the reef, while muttons and mangroves as well as some keeper-size yellowtails are thick on the patches. Add king, cero and Spanish mackerel to the catches in these areas, and you have a bounty of goodeating fish. The channel humps are providing their usual mixed bag of grouper, snapper and mackerel. Right now, there are also very good amounts of hogfish. I had a group out on Thanksgiving that caught 12 hogfish, including six keepers, in a half day of fishing all taken on shrimp presented on the bottom. Remember, the minimum size for hogfish is 12 inches to the fork not the tip of the tail. In the bay, the mackerel bite remains excellent for Spanish macks with some very large cero mixed in. Fresh shrimp is the ticket here. Dont forget to add a small trace of wire to prevent bite-offs. Further out in the gulf, the mangrove bite is good with plenty of grouper and some cobia added to the mix.The weeks bestPhil Lei and his family from Miami Lakes had a great day of fishing with Islamoradas Capt. Greg Poland. They caught bluefish, snappers and lots of Spanish mackerel. Poland says the bite is on out toward Sprigger Bank, and you can have tons of fun on an outgoing tide with a chum bag and live well full of shrimp.Snapper also a good bite right about nowSee Fishing,2BChris Johnson CaptainsColumn Conch hoops opens tonightThe talk around town is that this seasons Key West High School boys basketball team could be the best in a decade and new coach Anton Lopez believes it. This team is being compared to the 2002 state-finalist team, said Lopez, who will make his debut at 7 tonight when the Conchs play Barrington Christian at the Bobby Menendez Gym. I feel we have a great amount of talent.The 36-year-old Lopez, who played for the Conchs in the s, was named this summer to succeed Paul Davis, who stepped down after six seasons and a 58-80 record.The Conchs in a new district with Gulliver Prep, Coral Shores and St. Brendan will be a running, trapping team. Our strength is our speed and defense, Lopez said. We work more on defense because defense wins game. We have the legs and numbers for it. Never known for their size, the Conchs will be relatively big (and mobile) along the front line with 6-foot-5 senior forward JeQuan Lopez, the coachs son and the top rebounder on last seasons 14-7 team; 6-4 forward Thomas Butler, a senior who didnt play last season but averaged 17 points for Lopezs summer travel team; and 6-4 center Anthony Rice, a rugged rebounder. The backcourt will feature two quick guards fresh from the cross-country team Tony Guieb, who will play the point, and Ryan Wagner, a returning starter who will be expected to average in double figures and make 3point shots. Coming off the bench will be Clive Georges, a speedy experienced senior forward, along with veterans Gerald Hernandez and Donald Roberts, and Elliot Valdez, who played on the JVteam a year ago.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALLBusy Conchs move to 4-3-1You guys played like heroes six games in nine days, Key West High boys soccer coach Rob Eggers, in his own brand of ebullient optimism, said to his team after last Saturday afternoons 1-1 tie with Port Charlotte at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Six games in nine days had taken a physical toll. On the bench in street clothes Saturday were injured starters Jonathon Wright and Orion Jones, and even those that could play, like Kaemon Tomita, were grateful to sprawl on the grass to ease sore muscles. Tomita had scored the only goal in Friday nights 10 victory over the same team, and it appeared, as Saturdays game wound down, that the Conchs would win again by that score. But with less than eight minutes to play and Key West in full defensive mode (We dont need forwards, weve got nobody who can run, Eggers had called out from the bench), Port Charlottes Seth Patterson, bending it like Beckham, drove a hard spinning shot past keeper Roderick Gil toBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCERPhoto by BERT BUDDEFighting for possession of the ball,Key Wests Aaron Ansell fends off Port Charlottes Kelly Garrett during Saturdays 1-1 tie.

Marathon won that game, 8-3, thanks in large part to junior Riley Durkins six-goal effort. Durkin also scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Somerset Academy on Nov. 15.Westwood Christian School and Archimedean Academy forfeited games against Marathon on Nov. 18 and 21.The Dolphins were slated to visit Palmer Trinity School Tuesday, but results were not available at press time.

The team was slated to return to action Tuesday against Palmer, but results werent available.The girls (5-2) are also scheduled to host Archimedean Friday at 6 p.m. The boys basketball team (0-1) will look to bounce back from an overtime season-opening loss to district rival Westminster Christian School on Nov. 22, 77-71. Marathon led 48-45 at the end of three quarters against the Warriors, but trailed 6764 with 16 seconds left after a back-and-forth final frame. Senior Trevelle Beckford nailed a three-pointer to send it to overtime, but the Dolphins fell behind quick and couldnt recover. The boys were scheduled to visit Center of Life Academy Tuesday, but results werent available at press time. Theyre slated to visit Palmer Trinity Thursday at 7 p.m. and host Miami Country Day Friday at 6 p.m. The girls basketball team looks to notch its first victory after a 0-4 start.

Around the country, millions of people are decorating for the holidays but unfortunately, many will unknowingly create numerous electrical hazards in and around their home because each year thousands of fires start as the result of overloaded outlets, faulty or worn electrical wires, and decorations used improperly. As part of an effort to reduce holiday accidents and to keep the holidays merry, Keys Energy Services, the Lower Keys electric utility, has compiled the following simple tips for holiday electrical safety:Never use nails or staples to secure light strings or electrical cords.Do not overload extension cords and electrical outlets or connect more than three light strings together.Inspect decorations before plugging them in, checking for frayed or loose wires and loose connections.Turn off holiday lights while you are away from home or before going to bed at night. Consider adding a programmable timer to ensure lights are not accidentally left on.Unplug strings of lights before replacing bulbs, and replace burned-out bulbs promptly with ones of the same wattage.When placing lights or decorations outdoors, use only decorations and extension cords certified for outdoor use.Plug all outdoor electric decorations into circuits with ground fault circuit interrupters to avoid potential shocks.Do not string lights on trees that are near or touching power lines. On outside lights, point sockets down to avoid moisture build-up, wrap a plastic bag around connections and tie ends with electrical tape.Never use electric lights on a metallic tree. Faulty bulbs could make the tree become charged with electricity.

The program is to include Ralph Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, Felix Mendelssohns Symphony No. 4 Italian and Franz Joseph Haydns Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major featuring Bailey. Soloist Bailey is a classical recording artist as well as an accomplished chamber music performer and recitalist. He has appeared with leading symphonies around the world, including the Moscow Chamber Orchestra on its 50th anniversary tour of Russia. For each concert in the South Florida Symphonys season, conductor Sebrina Maria Alfonso brings together a core group of musicians from around the country. The group is supplemented with other leading musicians and soloists chosen to enhance each concert program. The symphonys 2011-12 season also includes a concert titled Fire and Ice, scheduled Jan. 25 with violinist Chee-Yun. In addition, Masters of Their Universe is set for March 8 with pianist Jeffrey Chappell. All performances take place at the Tennessee Williams Theatre, with tickets ranging from $25 to $75 per person, depending on seat location. The ticket price includes a post-concert reception where concertgoers can meet the conductor, orchestra members and featured soloists. Tickets can be purchased online at www.keystix.com .KEY WEST Capt. T.J. Yzenas of Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon had action on mutton, mangrove, yellowtail and lane snapper on the reef, along with jack crevalle and dolphin anywhere from 80 to 400 feet. The trip of the week goes to 6-foot-7 Randy from North Carolina, who wanted to catch something as long as his leg. His wish was fulfilled with a 25-pound dolphin caught after a slew of schoolies were in the fish box. Jason Matthews, Joe Adamski, and Victoria and Vernon Hamrick from Decatur, Ga., had a great day offshore aboard the Papa Pips with Capt. Howard Kelley and Capt. Tom Beck out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. The group had a great catch of dolphin, with Victoria getting the largest, a 48-inch cow.The SeaSquared had a real mixed bag of fishing last week with trips to the bay, offshore and the channel humps.The Kemp and Jiang groups caught snapper and mackerel in the bay, the Boring family reunion group caught snapper at the bridge on a very windy day, and the DeBartolo family continued its Thanksgiving tradition by fishing with us. This year they brought back a bounty of hogfish. We rounded out the week with a great trip offshore for the Sander group with dolphin and mutton snapper to show for their efforts, plus a shark trip for Bob Levi and his sons with 15 lemon shark notches on their belt.Fishing on the Got-Ta-Go out of Key West, Capt. Rob Harris put his anglers on dolphin, wahoo and sailfish offshore, including a 50-pound mahi for Freddie McGuire of Hermitage, Tenn. In the gulf, they caught kingfish, snapper, grouper and mackerel, while on the reef, yellowtail and grouper were the catch of the day.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, fished for yellowtails, cero mackerel, grunts and porgy on the bar south of Sand Key. When the breeze kicked up, he switched strategy and fished patch reefs and in Hawk Channel for mangrove, yellowtail and mutton snappers. He says chumming on the flats for blacktip, spinner, American sharp nose and hammerhead sharks is providing fun action for his guests.Casting ContestCapt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon. The fun contest runs from 6 to 8 p.m. and this week benefits the Marathon High School Maritime Scholarship Fund. Mark your calendars for next week, Dec. 8, when the contest will benefit Toyz for Keyz Kidz.Capt. Chris Johnson specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, bottom, wreck and reef fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of the 7 Mile Marina in Marathon.

Roderick is playing absolutely fantastic, assistant coach Frank Dunne said.After a scoreless first half, in which Key West had missed capitalizing on several scoring opportunities, the Conchs scored early in the second half when a 5foot-7-inch senior dynamo named Aaron Ansell beat the Port Charlotte goalie after a throw-in. Ive been playing soccer since I was 4, Ansell said later. I like the intensity of the game. It wasnt a good day for the normally dependable Roberto Remercy and Jean Azard, who missed easy shots and commiserated with each other in Creole. Just after Patterson had scored, Remercy was pulled down as he broke for the goal, but a foul wasnt called. That enraged Dunne, who yelled toward an official, Youve got to give a penalty [kick] on that. Key West had one final chance, but Remercy missed wide and time ran out. The Conchs (4-3-1) will play Archbishop McCarthy at 2 Saturday afternoon at the Back Yard.McCarthy comes visitingFrom Soccer,1B
Admit it: Youve torn a tag off a gift, stuffed it in your pocket when nobody was looking and scribbled a friends name on a fresh label. Youve committed the dirty deed of Christmas regifting. Youve probably also wrapped up samples you got for free and secretly exchanged presents from your grandmother. Perhaps you even stiffed your cleaning lady. So with the holidays coming up, its time for an update from the experts on the dos and donts. Is giving an old present a new life really that bad?In the world in which we live, its two degrees of separation, not six: You are playing Russian roulette, said Palm Beach corporate etiquette consultant Celeste Jones, founder of the Elementary Etiquette Society. Its social disaster if you get caught. Its social suicide.Manners experts agree that its OK to let an unwanted item sit in your closet for a bit before it winds up in your Goodwill pile. You should only be even remotely tempted to give away something you did not like if theres not a chance youll get caught. If the present came with a gift receipt, youre in the clear to exchange it without explanation. Modern manners are so liberal, but you still need to have your manners, said Claudia Ahrens-Hernandez, founder of the Etiquette Academy of South Florida in Doral. If they give you a sweater, and you dont like it, say its too big but when you exchange it, make sure you tell them how great the new one looks on you. It will flatter them.If the much-hated item is something the person really will expect to see at your house, you may just have to bite your lip and be seen using it at least once. One expert said she took a picture of herself in a horrible shirt she was given and framed it so it looked like shed worn it. The experts agreed that you can only be honest and admit returning a present if its from a close friend or relative you know wont be hurt.If youre having them over at Thanksgiving and theyre going to want to know where the platter they got you from Tiffanys is, you are going to want to tell them beforehand that you returned it, Jones said. You can say, I appreciate your thoughtfulness. It was such a nice, expensive gift that I didnt want it not to be used.Theyll appreciate the fact that you know that it was expensive.Who to buy forWith household budgets shrinking, more and more folks are trying to find ways to whittle that Christmas list down. Do you really have to buy a present for the letter carrier and doorman? It depends on whether you get a lot of packages.For people like the letter carrier, doorman or person who parks your car every day, experts say its perfectly acceptable to offer small token gifts, such as cookies even though theyd probably prefer cash. If you run a business and the UPS carrier is hauling packages to your door every day, you should consider upping the budget and giving the person $10 or $20.Maids and babysitters should get cash equal to one visit. The kidsteacher? Something homemade from your child.Hairdresser: Reschedule for January, said Coral Gables-based manners instructor Robin Wells, who runs Etiquette Manor. What about the boss? It looks like youre sucking up, Wells said. Its inappropriate.International social behavior expert Elena Brouwer agreed. The boss may think, Hmm... I am paying you much,? said Brouwer, who runs the International Etiquette Centre in Hollywood. If youre doing an office gift exchange and must buy for someone at work, make sure its nothing too personal, particularly if its someone of the opposite sex. No perfume or cologne, Jones said. No shaving kits. And no jewelry.Experts were split on whether a bottle of wine is the right way to go. Some say its a great gesture, but Wells warns: the person could be a recovering alcoholic or religious. So probably better to avoid it.Brouwer says men giving a present to a woman in a business situation should say something like, This is from my wife.Gifting tipsThe experts we consulted agreed on these general rules:Spend only what you can afford. Dont break the bank just to impress.Its OK to let people know in advance that times are tight and you wont be buying presents this year. Homemade presents are a thoughtful way to cut costs.Acknowledge the gift enthusiastically when you open it, even if you cant tell what it is.Overspending is a mistake.Political gifts are a nono, and think through whether that Che Guevara beret is the best idea for a Cuban exile.Athank-you card requires a pen. Not a text message on the phone, not a thank you message on Facebook, AhrensHernandez said. People dont know the power of a thank-you note. It should be sent in within a week, although Wells believes you dont need to send one if you exchanged presents in person. Its a must if the gift arrived in the mail or you were not there to accept it in person. Thank you by e-mail, our experts agreed, is lame. What our experts disagree on:Gift cards. Some say its modern and appropriate; purists winced at the thought. Use your judgment and at least wrap it up nicely. But consider that having the value declared up front could make you spend more than you would otherwise.What to do if someone gives you a gift you were not expecting and you dont have one to give back? Jones suggests a little white lie, such as I ordered it, and its not ready. Wells disagrees and believes youll embarrass the person if you rush to get him or her a reciprocal gift.The biggest thing to remember, Ahrens-Hernandez said: Its not about you, its about the person youre buying the gift for.
