And the committee heard the district faces another $1 million budget hole linked to the growth in charter school enrollment. Per state law, when the ratio of reserves to revenues falls below 3 percent, the district has to send official notification to the Florida Department of Education. If that cushion drops below 2 percent, the state could empanel an oversight committee to direct district finances. The outlook, Jara warned, threatens the quality of education offered in the Keys. Audit Committee Chairman Stuart Kessler asked Jara: Can you continue to deliver an educational program similar to what weve been experiencing with these financial constraints? No, Jara said, We cant. We cant continue to offer the same level of education that, in this district, has been historically for the last 10 years with another $7 million or even $4 million. Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer cautioned, I have no crystal ball, adding the figures presented were, very, very preliminary, and calculated based on conditions for the current budget year ending June 30, without the benefit of knowing countywide property valuations or the disposition of state funding.Under their current budget, the county School Board planned to spend $80,052,314 but has already approved $706,000 in further expenses, primarily based on costs related to hiring teachers to comply with state class-size mandates.Kinneer said at the Dec. 13 board meeting, he will present another budget amendment for $1 million needed to pay for charter schools students who enrolled late, primarily at Sigsbee Charter servicing military families in Key West. This comes after state funds were already allocated based on early enrollment estimates. With that will be a companion amendment restoring $350,000 through operational reductions Jara is still trying to identify.That leaves the district facing a potential year-end fund balance at $1.8 million, which is 2.43 percent of revenues.Kinneer said in the fiscal year starting July 1, hes projecting $80,549,162 in revenues compared to an estimated $83,358,955 in planned expenses. That means, to get above the 3 percent threshold that triggers possible state intervention, the district faces cuttingWithout action, state oversight looms as district reserves shrinkBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSSee Schools,3A HOBIE WAVE NATIONALS Feds warn county of suspensionMonroe County officials warn taxpayers could be on the hook for an estimated $65 million in takings claims over the next 20 or 30 years if the county is forced to carry out a new Federal Emergency Management Agency mandate. In December 2010, a twodecades long lawsuit between FEMAand The National Wildlife Federation, Florida Wildlife Federation and Defenders of Wildlife was settled. The conservation groups claimed FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were threatening the habitat of several endangered Keys species. But the settlement agreement stipulates that the county which was twice denied the right to intervene in litigation will be responsible for determining whether thousands of parcels are in endangered species habitat and eligible for the National Flood Insurance Program. County officials are essentially claiming that FEMAis dumping on Monroe taxpayers federal responsibility and the massive liability that comes along with it the settlement terms. FEMAMitigation Division Director Brad Loar did not respond to a county letter raising concerns with the mandate for nearly six months. In a letter dated Dec. 2 he states the county will be placed on probation from the federal flood insurance program on May 10, 2012 and suspended six months later. It is disappointing FEMA has chosen to take this position after over a year of negotiations, Mayor David Rice said. We have been telling them for over a year that theyre putting us in an untenable situation. Either FEMA doesnt care or isnt listening.County Administrator Roman Gastesi said the program could cost as much as $400,000 to operate annually, but that the real exposure comes in takings cases, where owners claim their development rights have been taken, and seek compensation in the courts.The other big concern, he added, is FEMAs threat to suspend the county from the flood insurance program. Thousands of Keys mortgage holders depend on the flood insurance for coverage that is otherwise unavailable without the federal program in place.Frankly we are shocked FEMAis threatening to place on suspension from the NFIP. FEMAis ignoring the fact that the countys appeal is pending at the court of appeals in Atlanta, Gastesi said during a Tuesday conference call. Rice agreed, reiterating the county was not involved in more than 20 years worth of litigation. We think we should have been at the table and that the interests of the people should have been represented. We dont want to accept responsibility for them failing to comply with the Endangered Species Act, he said. According to Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger, the county was denied intervention in 2005 by Judge Michael Moore at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Moore denied another intervention attempt in August 2010, prior to the settlement agreement being finalized. The court approved thePrice tag mounts to $65 million By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFLOOD INSURANCE See FEMA,3AFKAA: More concerns raisedMonroe County Commissioner George Neugent expressing concerns says he thinks voters should weigh in on elected versus appointed directors for the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority.Neugent said hes received numerous calls following the FKAAboards Nov. 22 meeting in which longtime Executive Director Jim Reynolds abruptly resigned.At the same meeting, the board replaced Reynolds with utility attorney Kirk Zuelch, who served for many years as State Attorney in the Keys. The vote was 4-1 and neither action appeared on the agenda as action items in advance. Neugent said he feels that elected officials are held more accountable to constituents and he wants residents to weigh in on the idea. To that end, Hes placed a discussion item on the Dec. 14 commission agenda.Away of determining that would be a straw poll as a referendum. Its pretty simple stuff that could be attached to the next election that comes up, he said. Going to the governor with that documentation carries a lot more weight than just the county commission requesting we have an elected board.Neugent said hes received numerous calls on the topic and that he was surprised the Aqueduct did not contact the county before it changed leadership. The two are partners in hundreds of millions of dollars worth of wastewater projects. I would think at least out of courtesy they would have called the mayor. Im not real happy with what happened, he said. Mayor David Rice agreed with Neugent and said he was surprised by the Aqueduct boards actions Nov. 22. I have nothing against any of these people. But when you accomplish that much in one meeting, it makes people wonder how you did it, he said, adding theres little harm in a nonbinding referendum. You can end up with a board youd rather not have by either procedure. There is, however, a mechanism for the voter to come back on course if they feel the board is not being responsive to their wishes, he said.

The proposed conversion of the old Florida Keys Electric Cooperative Building in Tavernier into a U.S. Homeland Security building is on hold for now.The Monroe County Historic Preservation Commission unanimously voted Monday to delay deciding whether the project meets the architectural standards of the Tavernier Historical District until the county gets more details from the federal government about exactly what it plans to build. Commissioner Bert Bender said his board will take up the issue again once county planning staff determines whether the proposed project meets the buildings current approved use, which is to house offices. If not, commissioners with the Planning Commission and the County Commission would need to approve a conditional use agreement. More than 80 people packed into a small room inside the Tavernier fire station to voice opposition to the project during the fivemember commissions meeting Monday afternoon. Two commissioners were absent. The plan calls for the 8,300 square foot building at mile marker 91.6, oceanside, to be converted to a federal office building that will house agents with the Department of Homeland Securitys Investigative division and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Marine Unit. Government officials and representatives of the buildings owner, Tampa-based Hoover Properties, insist the building will not be a prisoner holding facility. But most of the people who spoke at Mondays meeting and most of the letters read into the record by commissioners cited the possibility of the building being used as a jail as the chief reason why they opposed the project. The building would have holding cells and processing offices, but no prisoner would be kept overnight at the facility, Special Agent Leo Morales, the head of Homeland Securitys South Florida investigative office, said in a previous interview. But Tavernier resident Richard Agler said he feared the one or two original holding cells may multiply over time, and go unnoticed after attention over the building wanes. Mission creep is easy to visualize, Agler said Residents spoke out against the proposed 6-foot high wrought iron fence that would surround the 30-plus space parking lot. Another sore spot: plans calling to close the buildings entrance on U.S. 1. In exchange, there would be an entrance on Sunrise Drive and an exit on North Sunrise Drive. Residents were also angry that no representative from the federal government or Hoover Properties attended the meeting. Hoover Properties instead sent its contracted civil engineer Carlos Solis to explain the project and field questions. Solis said building plans have not been submitted to the county because Hoover wanted to get the go-ahead from the historic commission first. The original intention of Mondays meeting was for the Historic Preservation Commission to decide whether the proposed buildings architecture fit within the historic district. But Nick Mulick, a Tavernier attorney representing about 100 residents against the project, said the commissioners were also within their purview to approve or reject the project on the basis of whether the building itself belonged in the district. Mulick said some of the proposed buildings designs make clear that the function of the facility is to secure whats going to be inside, including prisoners. Without this configuration, this project will not function, Mulick said. The building is designed to secure people who dont want to be there. Therefore, Mulick said the commission should decide that the building does not belong in Tavernier. If a [prisoner holding facility] is not planned, Mulick asked the three commissioners present at the meeting, then why isnt someone here from the company saying this is not planned.

Community opposed to Homeland SecurityCounty to decide whether project approved useBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comTAVERNIER Florida Keys Electric Co-op headquarters building slated for new Homeland Security offices.Offer to sell baby brings criminal chargesAformer Monroe County resident charged with trying to sell her 8-month-old son for $7,000 was facing renewed legal problems from a 2010 Keys arrest. Kenia Quiala Bosque, 30, of Opa-Locka was arrested early Sunday in Miami-Dade County after an investigation initiated by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Bosque, a mother of three, was jailed on a felony count of attempting to arrange an illegal adoption in exchange for money. The investigation began when Bosque called an acquaintance in the Lower Keys, where she used to live. The man alerted the Sheriffs Office that Bosque negotiated to sell her 8-month-old child for $7,000 [in] U.S. currency, according an arrest affidavit. Bosque reportedly set a time and place to take the money but did not show up at the Hialeah location. Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents and Monroe deputies then arrested Bosque at her Opa-Locka apartment. Authorities said the fact that Bosque had negotiated the sale on several recorded phone calls left them fearing for the childs well-being. We are just so glad we were able to obtain this information in time to intervene before anything could happen to endanger this child, Sheriff Bob Peryam said in a statement. Her three children, including the infant boy, were turned over to relatives. Bosque, listed as standing 6-foot-1, was living in the Lower Keys when she was arrested on Nov. 25, 2010, on a charge of burglarizing a Summerland Key property to steal copper wire. Sheriffs Office deputies reported finding Bosque and two men in the act of pulling copper wire from inside a building at a closed shrimp farm. In February, Bosque signed an agreement to enter a pretrial intervention program as part of the burglary case.However, court records show local probation staff filed a report three weeks ago saying Bosque failed the program. On Nov. 21, Bosques burglary case was returned to the Monroe County Circuit Court docket for January 2012. The felony count of illegal adoption will be prosecuted in Miami-Dade County. It doesnt matter how difficult the circumstances are, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle told the Herald.

Theres no requirement that they put it on the agenda, he said of the firing and hiring of a director.State Rep. Ron Saunders, the House Minority Leader of Key West, told the Keynoter any change in the makeup of the board is a long way off. He said its too late to file a bill for the 2012 session scheduled to begin on Jan. 10. Youre not looking at a very quick change and thats just as well b/c it would look like a reaction to recent events. Theres good arguments on both sides and I havent made a commitment which I prefer, Saunders said. The next legislative session is in March 2013, meaning any change could be effective for the 2014 election cycle. Thats assuming everything went like Neugent would like to see it happen, Saunders said. Its a major issue with a lot of impact. Its not one Id like to see rushed through the process. According to Zuelch, the Aqueduct Authority was created by the state in 1938. Only during a four-year period since then from 1976 to 1980 have board members been elected. The Dec. 14 commission meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Marathon Government Center.Long way offFrom FKAA,1A settlement in January 2011 and the county has an appeal of Moores latest decision pending at the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 11th District. Shillinger explained during the conference call that if the county doesnt comply with FEMAs mandate, it would be placed on probation from the program on May 10, 2012. Six months after that date the NFIP would be suspended, he said. In addition, Moores 2005 ruling in favor of the environmental groups created an injunction list of some 50,000 parcels where flood insurance could not be issued because of endangered species. Many appealed and were taken off that list, but a revised list of parcels could find some property owners who were removed back on the list. On Tuesdays conference call, Gastesi said that the commission would discuss the countys next step at the December monthly meeting. Its scheduled Dec. 14, starting at 9 a.m. at the Marathon Government Center near mile marker 48.5, gulfside.Probation threatenedFrom FEMA,1A more than $5 million in expenses for next year. The announcement comes during a current fiscal year that brought upward of $9 million in expense reductions, resulting in pay cuts for administrators, seven furlough days for all teachers and staff and the delay of several planned performance-boosting initiatives. Theres also a worst case scenario that would project a budget shortfall of more than $14 million if Keys voters dont approve a Jan. 31 referendum allowing the transfer of $9.8 million in tax dollars from capital accounts to the general operating budget. Everything is on the table next year (in terms of cuts), Jara said. We have some tough decisions that weve got to start planning for in January, earlier in the process. Im meeting with department directors and principals right now.School Board member Ron Martin, a former Coral Shores principal, said, When you tell someone they dont have seven days pay coming, thats a tough decision.Every time you set down and talk about a budget cut or a reduction, you need to say in your mind, Hows this going to affect that kid in the classroom and that teacher?These teachers right now, Martin said, are working their butts off to educate our children and keep a quality program going.Tough decisionsFrom Schools,1A Attorney seeks venue changeThe attorney for Marathon resident Michael Mearns says his client will stand trial if a negligent manslaughter charge stemming from the February auto-crash death of 17-yearold Amber Kogelis is not dropped by the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. Kogelis, of Lower Matecumbe Key, lost control of a 1998 Ford Explorer just after midnight Feb. 25 on a curved portion of Aviation Boulevard in Marathon. The 24-year-old Mearns was the lone passenger. The Florida Highway Patrol says Kogelis whose blood alcohol content was .125 percent struck a parked 2006 Ford pickup before running over shrubs and a curb, hitting a dock and landing in Dodge Lake. Mearns, 24, is accused of acting with reckless indifference in the hours leading up to the crash. But attorney Hal Schuhmacher, who represents Mearns, said he plans to fight the charge tooth and nail. I cant fathom a scenario where Michael Mearns would agree to plea even no contest to any crime. From what I see so far I dont see a criminal act at all. Im shocked there was ever any criminal charges brought against him, he said. Schuhmacher told the Keynoter he expects the case to be resolved in the early part of next year. Key West-based Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones was assigned the case after Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker recused herself in July. Assistant State Attorney Paunece Ramage filed the motion to have Becker removed, claiming she is too close with potential witnesses. Becker reduced Mearns bond from $250,000 to $50,000 in July and he was released from jail. Marathon residents packed the courtroom in support of Mearns. Schuhmacher said he asked Jones at an October pretrial hearing to hold the trial in Marathon. He will file a formal motion when a trial date is settled on. What I basically asked was for the judge to hear the case up here and he hasnt ruled out that possibility, Schuhmacher said. Ramage could not be reached for comment by press time. Apretrial hearing is scheduled before Jones at 10 a.m. on Jan. 5 in Key West; a tentative trial date is set for Jan. 23 at 8:45 a.m. Mearns, the son of former Marathon Mayor Randy Mearns and grandson of former Councilwoman Marjie Mearns, escaped the SUV after it plunged into the water, but Kogelis was still trapped when deputies and paramedics arrived. She was dead at the scene. Mearns is accused of knowingly letting Kogelis drive while drunk, and also knowing she had only a learners permit that didnt allow her to drive after dark.In manslaughter case against Michael Mearns By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONGastesi seeks $3,600 pay hikeMonroe County Administrator Roman Gastesis proposed four-year contract extension is back on the County Commission agenda. The new deal would run through May 2016 and increase Gastesis salary from $181,440 per year to $185,040 per year. Gastesi requested the use of a hybrid county car as part of his extension, but concerns arose after his spotty South Florida driving record between 1997 and 2009 was made public.It lists offenses from speeding and blowing stop signs to having an expired registration and twice driving with a suspended license in 2009. While it was determined the traffic violations wouldnt affect county insurance premiums, it raised questions about whether personal use of a county car outside of county business could. No county employee uses county vehicles for personal use, which led Gastesi to pull the extension off the November agenda to investigate insurance issues. Its something that hasnt been done before and its too much of a hassle to do. An amendment to the insurance is not worth it and Ill just keep driving my own car, Gastesi said. Gastesi said he spoke with commissioners, who are apparently amenable to a $300 per month increase to his existing $650 per month car allowance. Its a justifiable number because when we looked at the mileage Im doing about 25,000 miles per year. Our reimbursement rate is .44 cents per mile, which comes out to $11,000, he said. At $650 per month, Gastesi is receiving $7,800 each year. Commissioners have told the Keynoter that traffic tickets wouldnt affect their decision on Gastesis contract.

Dick, as well as board members Andy Griffiths, Robin Smith-Martin and Ron Martin, and Superintendent Jesus Jara, were all on hand for the discussion. Next month Keys voters will be asked to continue for four years a Legislatureapproved mechanism that allows the district to transfer a half mill (50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value) tax levy from a capital fund to a general operating account. Capital funds pay for future school construction and other hard costs. Operating funds pay for things like salaries, supplies, utilities and the like. Keeping that half mill shift in operating accounts raises an estimated $9.8 million. Dick said he wants board members to agree at a Dec. 13 meeting to raise the capital tax from a half mill to a full $1 per $1,000 of assessed home value. Making that commitment at the Dec. 13 meeting puts in place a possible contingency plan just in case the vote fails. We need to put to rest that people think they can get a tax decrease, he said. Id request youd stop that nonsense. The message can get out, Dick continued, but Ill tell you, its not going to happen. I will poll the board and ask them how would they vote come next September [when the 201213 budget is finalized] if this millage fails. Audit Committee Chairman Stuart Kessler said the capital millage tax rate, should be based on the capital needs of the district. Not because were transferring money around to make a political statement. Larry Murray, the audit committee member who requested the discussion item be placed on the agenda, expressed concern about how Dicks board poll would be perceived by the voting public. It sounds like to me, and one interpretation that could be offered, is this: Mr. Voters, if you vote down the half mill operating tax, were going to raise the half mill capital tax.The board, in effect, is going to say to the voters, Screw us, well screw you.And thats well how it could be interpreted. I think its a very volatile political act, Murray concluded. Sloan Bashinsky, an activist and frequent candidate for various office, stressed that scrutiny of what happens if the referendum fails could damage the outcome at the polls. Everybody knows there aint gonna be no change in taxes. Why you would keep floating this and trying to put it out in front of the public, about something so critical, is beyond my comprehension. I view it as reckless, irresponsible and just plain stupid.

The Coast Guards Sector Key West spearheads the Florida Keys Area Contingency Plan, which draws on expertise from 20 federal, state and local agencies, along with some nonprofit groups. The plan ensures readiness to respond to any possible oil or hazardous substance that could impact the Florida Keys coastline, says a Coast Guard district summary. The Monday session in Marathon was a quarterly update on drilling and spillresponse status. Among issues reviewed were a discussion of international offshore drilling response planning efforts. The conversation [Monday] included potential operations throughout the north Caribbean, including the Bahamas and Cuba, said Lt. Kara Lavin, a Key West Coast Guard information officer. Available information suggests exploration drilling in the Cuban Exclusive Economic Zone could begin in early 2012, Lavin said. The Florida Keys Contingency Plan includes scenarios for potential impact and worst case discharge potential, and is designed to ensure a coordinated response to mitigate any potential environmental impacts, Lavin said. Before the Deepwater Horizon spill that leaked an estimated 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, most local oilresponse plans focused on responding to a spill from a ship. In preparing for the possible arrival of Deepwater Horizon oil in the Keys none apparently reached South Florida officials realized that assessments of available resources often were incomplete or outdated. The Florida Keys Area Contingency Plan now includes regularly updated information from numerous emergency-management and environmental agencies, along with wildlife groups like the Dolphin Research Center and The Turtle Hostital. Lessons learned from the Deep Water Horizon incident are being incorporated into our local Florida Keys Area Contingency Plan and also the [International Offshore Drilling Response Plan], Lavin said. The International Offshore Drilling Response Plan primarily addresses the conduct of offshore operations in response to a worst-case discharge originating from an offshore source. Spanish oil company Repsol will be the first of several foreign companies to explore for oil in the Florida Straits aboard a giant Italianowned semi-submersible rig constructed in China and Taiwan. The $750 million rig, named the Scarabeo 9, is en route to the Cuban coast and is expected to arrive in late December or January. Florida U.S. Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio are among congressmen pushing legislation that would hold foreign oil companies directly accountable for oil spills that pollute U.S. territory.Task force eyes impact of Cuba oil drillingOIL DRILLINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comNavys Blue Angels comingThe storied Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron will thunder back into Key West on March 23 and 24, 2013, for the Southernmost Air Spectacular. The team of elite U.S. Navy pilots will take to the skies around Naval Air Station Key Wests Boca Chica Field for the free show, announced yesterday in Las Vegas as part of a 34city North American circuit. Hosting the Blue Angels is a great, fun opportunity for the folks in the Keys and for those who make the air show a destination trip and travel from all over Florida, NAS spokeswoman Trice Denny told the Keynoter. The last time the iconic jets, F/A18 Hornets, flew in the Keys was for a 2010 air show; before that it was in 2004, but the teams history in Monroe County dates back much further: During the 1960s the Blue Angels spent the winter months at NAS Key West. The Blue Angelshistory dates back to the end of World War II, when Adm. Chester W. Nimitz ordered the formation of a flight demonstration team to showcase naval aviation. The Blue Angels performed their first demonstration in June 1946. The formation flying team is stationed at Naval Air Station Pensacola during its show season. However, the squadron spends January through March training pilots and new team members at Naval Air Facility El Centro, Calif. The Blues choose their demonstration sites to help assist in recruiting and retention goals, and the performances demonstrate the professional skills and capabilities of the Navy to the public, Denny said.

NEWS BRIEFSOne fatality in twocar crash on CudjoeApassenger riding in a vehicle involved in a head-on crash Saturday on Cudjoe Key has died from injuries.Police identified the victim as Shaun Russell Lumachi, 33, of Long Beach, CA.He is survived by his wife, Deziree. Lumachi was riding in a Lincoln driven by Erick Serato, 35, and George Rice, 68, also of Long Beach.They were reportedly hit by a Ford pickup driven by Keith Weitzman, 25, of Big Pine Key.Weitzman was northbound on U.S. 1 Saturday morning and reportedly fell asleep, drifting into the southbound traffic and striking the Lincoln. The Ford rolled and came to rest in a ditch. Police responding to the scene found an infant, still in a child safety seat, who was unharmed. Weitzman was taken to Fishermens Hospital and then flow to Jackson Ryder Trauma Center, where he was listed in serious condition. All three men in the Lincoln were transported to Lower Keys Medical Center.The police report shows no indication of alcohol on any of the drivers or passengers.Due to the investigation of a fatality, all traffic on Cudjoe Key was stopped. The backup was reported as almost two miles in each direction.Animal rights activist enters pleaAMiami animal-rights activist entered a not-guilty plea Nov. 28 to a felony count of disrupting an animal enterprise in Key Largo.Arnold Chris Lagergren, 41, originally was arrested in September near the Marine Mammal Conservancy site on Key Largo, where two pilot whales were being held for rehabilitation from a Lower Keys stranding four months earlier.Some animal-rights groups have taken up Lagergrens cause and have launched online campaigns to financially assist his legal defense.Lagergren initially was charged in September with two counts of trespass and two counts of criminal mischief for entering the MMC site at mile marker 102.2. He was taken into custody at gunpoint by an off-duty Miami police officer volunteering with the whale rescue effort, and formally charged by a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy. Lagergren trespassed into the MMC site and tampered with a fence, Miami officer Javier Ortiz told local authorities. The whales were in a different holding area of the site at the time. Federal wildlife officials declared the female whales, an adult and a calf, to be nonreleasable due to health and age problems. The whales were later transported to SeaWorld in Orlando, where they remain. In early November, prosecutors with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office filed an upgraded felony charge on Lagergren of disrupting an animal enterprise essentially defined as an attraction, farm, laboratory or other operation that houses animals. This is really a rarely used statute, said defense attorney Richard Wunsch of Key West. We have not been able to find a whole lot of case law on this particular statute. The case has been assigned to Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia at the Plantation Key Government Center. Apretrial hearing has been placed on the January court docket but the defense attorney said the case likely will take a while to work its way to trial. Well be taking despositions from all the states witnesses and studying the facts of the case, Wunsch said. Police reports describe Lagergren as affiliated with the Animal Liberation Front organization, which advocates direct action against animal captivity. He is free on $30,000 bond.IN THE COURTS KEYS CONSERVATIONMonroe County will be getting a new officer assigned to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Shelton Bartlett is one of 11 recruits who recently graduated from the Florida Public Safety Institute near Tallahassee. Everyone in this class was already law enforcement certified before joining us, said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We are very pleased with the dedication and enthusiasm they already display for the job. The FWC academy teaches basic law enforcement. The final eight weeks concentrated on skills needed to be an FWC officer, Brown said. He said out of hundreds of applicants, only 13 were selected to begin the class, and 11 made it through the intensive training and physical demands to graduate. The training included firearms proficiency, wildlife identification, defensive tactics, vessel and all-terrain vehicle operation, as well as a focus on state and federal wildlife and fisheries laws. We are excited about what these individuals bring to the FWC, Brown said. The group represents a wide variety of abilities and experiences. Four of the officers are military veterans, one having served in both Iraq and Kuwait. Other FWC assignments are going to: Broward, Palm Beach, Glades, Lee, Clay, St. Lucie, Pinellas, and MiamiDade counties. Browards FWC office is getting three of the 11 officers. All the other counties are getting one FWC officer from the latest recruit class. As FWC officers, they will patrol more than 34 million acres of public lands in Florida, as well as over 12,000 square miles of water. These officers, Brown said, will be protecting the Fishing Capital of the World and one of the largest public hunting systems in the country. In addition to enforcing all state laws, FWC officers are authorized to enforce federal fisheries and wildlife laws. Wednesday,December 7,2011 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com 12-14 lb.

Boat ramp with 72 hour boat dockage!! Senate committee eyes school insurance poolASenate committee on Monday approved a proposal that would create a health insurance consortium aimed at Florida school district employees. State Sen. Don Gaetz (RNiceville) said the plan would save schools a substantial amount of money. Gaetz, former schools superintendent in Okaloosa County, said small and medium-sized districts often face difficulty getting good prices for health insurance. Insurance pools that spread the risk across larger numbers of policy holders are generally less costly than single-employer pools with fewer participants. Gaetz said buying in a consortium would lead to savings that could be better used to fund classroom needs. The Senate Governmental Oversight and Accountability Committee voted 9-0 to approve the bill, which has one more committee to clear before it moves onto the full Senate for debate.AHouse version of the legislation, HB 453, is scheduled to be heard Thursday, Dec. 8, in the House State Affairs Committee. Okaloosa Countys school district is frequently cited for its low cost per student and high achievement scores.Monroe County School Board Chair John Dick studied the Okaloosa system over several budget cycles and frequently cites them when comparing expenditures in Monroe County vs. the Panhandle county. Gaetz was elected to the Okaloosa County School Board in 1994 and served six years in that post before being elected district superintendent in 2000. He served as the Okaloosa County School Superintendent from 2000 to 2006, when he ran for the state senate and won. He was reelected to the senate seat in 2010. Prior to his public service role, Gaetz was vice chair (retired) and co-founder of VITAS Healthcare Corp.

BPaccused Halliburton of having intentionally destroyed evidence about possible problems with its cement slurry poured into the deep-sea Macondo well about 100 miles off the Louisiana coast. An oil well must be cemented properly to avoid blowouts. Also in the documents filed in a New Orleans federal court, BPaccused Halliburton of failing to produce incriminating computer modeling evidence. BP accused Halliburton of claiming the modeling is gone. BPasked U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier to penalize Halliburton and order a court-sponsored computer forensic team to recover the missing modeling results. Halliburton did not return a call seeking comment but told other media outlets that the accusations were untrue. The allegations in the 310-page motion ratcheted up the showdown among BP PLC and contractors, Halliburton and Transocean Ltd. The three companies have been sparring over blame for the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon blast, which killed 11 workers and led to the release of 206 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. So far, BP, the majority owner of the Macondo well, has footed the bill for the emergency response and cleanup. Also involved are Anadarko Petroleum Co. and Cameron International Corp. The first trial over the Deepwater Horizon disaster is scheduled to start Feb. 27 in New Orleans. The first leg is expected to take about three months and determine the liability of each company involved in drilling the Macondo well. There will be other phases over cleanup costs, punitive damages and other claims. Federal and independent investigations of the disaster have found fault in Halliburtons cement job because it failed to properly plug the well. Halliburton used a foamy cement slurry. In Mondays court filing, BPaccused Halliburton employees doing an internal investigation of the Macondo disaster of discarding and destroying early test results they performed on the same batch of cement slurry used in the Macondo well. BPsaid Halliburtons chief cement mixer for Gulf projects testified in depositions that the cement slurry seemed thin to him but that he chose not to write about his findings to his bosses out of fear he would be misinterpreted. I didnt want to put anything on an email that could be twisted, and turned, Rickey Morgan, the Halliburton cement expert, said in depositions. He worked at a laboratory in Duncan, Okla. Upon reviewing these latest testing results, Halliburton employees destroyed records of the testing as well as the physical cement samples used in the testing, BPalleged.Cites reports previously undisclosed By CAIN BURDEAUAssociated Press GULF OIL SPILLIn this April 21,2010 file photo taken in the Gulf of Mexico more than 50 miles southeast of Venice on Louisianas tip,the Deepwater Horizon oil rig is seen burning.A BP scientist identified a previously unreported deposit of flammable gas that could have played a role in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill,but the oil giant failed to divulge the finding to government investigators for as long as a year,according to interviews and documents obtained by The Associated Press.(AP Photo/Gerald Herbert,File) FWC graduates 11 new officersKeynoter Staff

While I was there, his wife informed me they recently received news of the loss of several of his Marine Corps buddies in Afghanistan. We should not forget that as we are enjoying all the joys of the holiday season, many of our sons and daughters are still in harms way. As we enjoy the lights, the fellowship, the gifts the meals, let us not forget them. We dont have to agree with the war to support our troops, Marines, airmen and sailors. Care packages are one of the most important things in the deployeds lives. Let us not forget them through this holiday season. Due to personal situations, Im not running my care package campaign this year but am asking everyone in the community to do his and her part. Ask everyone you know if they have a family member or friend overseas. If you dont know someone, there are several places you can help. There are two websites where members of the deployed post their needs and wants. They are www.anymarine.com and www.anysoldier.com. The Key Largo Moose Lodge has been collecting items and donating them to our local chapter of Forgotten Soldiers who ship overseas regularly. As we enjoy the grace and joy of the season, let none of us forget those who are in harms way. A little remembrance goes a very long way when you are so far from home. Claudia Moriarty Marine mom, Key LargoKidsprogram funOur 7-year-old son Myan was recently involved in a skate camp for youths at the Marathon Community Parks skate park. We just wanted to say thanks to the city of Marathon for offering this camp. Our son had a terrific time and learned so much. It was really amazing. The lady that put this together, Tina Belotti, was very nice and continually kept us informed of the status of the camp the week before it started. She was there every day helping to make sure the camp ran smoothly. The coach, Matt, was also very nice. He was very patient and helpful to the kids in the class. Our son really liked him. He worked a lot of one-on-one with the boys there. They also had a handful of other young men helping. They all were very nice and polite young men. We live just a couple of miles from the park and our son will be there quite often, working on his new skills and hoping to run into his coach or some of the other boys there. Thanks again. We hope to see more activities like this for the young kids. Tom and Portia Whale MarathonSchool Board giveawayWhat is the Monroe County School Board thinking? First it tries to cut sports out of the schools to save money. Then it cut out an entire period from the high schools (except Coral Shores, whose students had to share textbooks in order to afford their seventh period). The International Baccalaureate program is dead, and then to top it all off, our district leaders now want to give away millions of dollars worth of property in order to get thousands of dollars worth of parking spaces. Heres a thought on the Glynn Archer Elementary School deal sale: Give me the property for free, Ill sell it and then with the proceeds of the sale hire a crew to move the buses around during the Key West road construction project. I guarantee that Ill still be a millionaire after the roads are done. Does this current school administration hate government, students and public schools in general, or just common sense? Chris Smith MarathonGUEST COLUMNAs a successful and respected public servant with more than 49 years of service in public utilities in Monroe County, I have gained valuable insight into what elements are conducive to having a utility board effectively serve the community. The primary element is strong leadership. Successful leadership in a public agency is achieved when there is confidence and balance between the board and executive team. Each side must bring knowledge, positive energy and professionalism to the table because any breach in integrity or trust will negatively impact the success of the agency. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority provides an essential and life-sustaining product by the delivery of potable water to the Florida Keys and it is a little known fact that the FKAAis the only water utility in the state that falls under state oversight. When the FKAAwas created in the 1930s, the legislators determined that because Monroe County did not have its own source of water, the utility needed to be treated as an agency of the state to assure that access to drinking water from the mainland could not be blocked by special interests or governments in other counties. Along with this, it was established that the FKAA board would be appointed by the governor rather than elected. Then in the 1960s, a local movement was successful in having the FKAAlegislation changed to become an elected board. Within six years of operating under an elected board, the FKAAfell victim to gross mismanagement due to political maneuvering and was on the brink of bankruptcy. Residents of Monroe County were placed under water hours, which meant they had functioning water pressure only three times a day for two hours each. Even during the water hours, there was not enough pressure to get water to the second floor of a building without a person buying a special pump. The state had to step in, oust the elected board, bring in emergency funding and temporarily place daily operations under the management of the South Florida Water Management District. With the return of an appointed board, water rates were reduced from about $12 a thousand gallons to the current $5.47 a thousand gallons. Also, many improvements have been made to the system to ensure that an adequate supply of high-quality water is delivered to the Keys each day. The process for being a successful applicant for appointment to the FKAA board requires completing a detailed and lengthy application. The applicants present recommendations from elected officials. The qualified candidates undergo extensive background checks, reference checks, interviews and intense review by the governor. The outcome of this process results in the FKAAhaving one of the most qualified and professional boards in the county. One has to wonder why the Monroe County Commission would even discuss whether the FKAAboard should be appointed or elected when it has no authority in this matter. For a county commissioner to propose this matter be voted on in a referendum is irresponsible since it would be a nonbinding vote and since the FKAAlegislation, which defines the board makeup, can be changed only by the Legislature. So who would pay for the cost of holding a referendum, who would pay the legal fees associated with researching and preparing the referendum question, and who would pay for the public outreach to advertise and promote the referendum question? The answer is simple the taxpayers. Its another waste of taxpayer money. The County Commission has a full plate without getting entrenched in matters over which it has no authority. So now, because the executive director resigned, there is a movement building to once again seek an elected board for the FKAA. Dont get me wrong, I love elections and have been successful in my four bids for Key West City Commission, but I do not believe it is in the best interest of the water users to have the FKAAboard be elected. Our drinking water should not become a political prize. We have to trust the appointed board (as well as we trust our elected boards) to make decisions regarding its executive team. In recent years, residents of Monroe County have witnessed a number of different boards and commissions have to make tough decisions regarding their management teams and those decisions have proven to be in the best interest of the community. Aboard or commission must have confidence in its management team and it is essential they be able to work together in a cohesive approach to assure the agency best serves the community. If you have a problem or just have questions about what is really happening at the FKAA, all of the board meetings are open to the public or you can call any one of the members. I know you will find each of the members to be very approachable, receptive to your inquiries and sincere in their responses. Harry Bethel served 16 years on the Key West City Commission and spent 49 years working at the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and Keys Energy Services. He has served on several boards, among them the Key West Bight Management District Board and the citys General Employee Pension Board of Trustees.Invoke federal power to ban commerce in dangerous snakesKiller pythons in the Everglades are not a joke, a punch line or a great screenplay for a cheesy horror movie. These large constrictor snakes are real and a danger to the ecological and economic vitality of the River of Grass. These invasive snakes are not natural predators helping to maintain an ecological balance in this environment. Rather, these snakes are gobbling deer and alligators whole and putting people in danger. The fight to eradicate them has become a drain of scarce public funds. And at a time when restoring the deteriorating River of Grass is environmental imperative No. 1 in Florida, the killer snakes are a huge, creepy menace. So why wont the Obama administration sign a rule that would ban the trade in these creatures? Such imported snakes have been sold on the Internet, at swap shops or at flea markets to people wholly unqualified to handle them. In South Florida, when these snakes outgrew ownersability to safely keep them at home, they did the easiest and most irresponsible thing possible: Released them into the Everglades. Others sometimes escaped during hurricanes. Agroup of Floridas congressional leaders is calling on the president to enact a rule barring commerce in dangerous snakes. In this highly polarized political climate that has stopped law-making in its tracks, the fact that this is a bipartisan group of officials alone should get Mr. Obamas attention. Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, on the Democratic side, and Republican Reps. Allen West and David Rivera are among those who are supporting the rule. Heres want the rule would do: It would put nine species of deadly snakes, including boa constrictors, anacondas and pythons, on a list of banned injurious species under the Lacey Act. The proposal to add the snakes to the list has been under scrutiny for a long five years, predating the current administration in Washington. In 2006, the South Florida Water Management District petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, asking that Burmese pythons be classified injurious. Eighteen months later, in 2008, Fish and Wildlife sought public comment on the proposal. Ayear and a half after that, the U.S. Geological Survey determined that constrictor snakes were a threat to the stability of natural ecosystems. In 2010, Fish and Wildlife issued a proposed rule to label the nine species of snakes as injurious; and in March of this year, the White House Office of Management and Budget/Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs received the final ruling.This rule has been thoroughly vetted, scientifically and otherwise. Its time to stop the trafficking in these snakes. Many states, including Florida, are out in front of the federal law, where they have made it illegal to breed, sell or possess these animals. The federal rule would stop movement into the United States and across state lines. For instance, in 2003 Congress banned interstate sale of tigers, lions and other big cats. Adding the nine species of constrictor snakes to the injurious list would go a long way in bolstering Floridas no-possession law, working hand-in-glove to crack down on this deadly scourge. In the fight to save the Everglades, the federal government should not throw good money after bad. Its time for the administration to prohibit trade in snakes that have become a real-life horror story. The Miami HeraldThe FKAAdoesnt need an elected board BETHEL Citizens board chair presses forrate hikesCitizens Property Insurance Corp. can make some changes to reduce the giant insurers exposure but it is going to take legislative action to make meaningful reductions to the state-backed insurer. Citizens now handles 1.5 million policies making it the largest windstorm insurer in Florida. Carlos Lacasa, chairman of Citizens governing board, told Cabinet members Tuesday that legislative action is required to raise the cap that Citizens now faces before they can raise rates every year. He also blamed the legislature for impediments on other changes that would make Citizens less attractive to consumers and reduce its exposure to pay claims in future events like hurricanes or other natural disasters. In a line of questioning that likely raised the eyebrows of builders, Gov. Rick Scott questioned why Citizens is even insuring new homes. Scott said that insuring new construction at belowmarket rates is a disincentive to depopulate the property insurer. Lacasa said the states construction industry is a huge jobs generator and relies on Citizens for coverage in coast areas where much of the states newest development occurs. In Monroe County, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. is the largest property insurer, covering 24,000 Keys property owners. Customers face a 12.5 percent rate hike for windstorm coverage as their policies renew. Thats because an existing cap on increases, imposed by the Legislature two years ago, is still holding back the dam. Last year, Citizens filed a rate increase that would have triggered hikes of as much as 235 percent for commercial coverage and 120 percent for residential policies.Tells Cabinet insurer needs more flexibilityFLORIDA NEWS SERVICEINSURANCE Retired attorney files for schoolRetired attorney and substitute teacher Mark Peterson of Big Pine Key on Tuesday filed paperwork to run for a Monroe County School Board seat currently held by two-term incumbent Duncan Mathewson. Mathewson, who couldnt be reached by press time, has not committed to seeking a third four-year term representing the Big Pine Key-Lower Keys area. Mathewson first won in 2004 and was reelected in 2008. His term expires in 2012. Also in the mix is Dan Dombroski, a former candidate for the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board and long time executive director of the Boys of and Girls Club of Key West. Dombroski, who also lives on Big Pine, hasnt made anything official, but, in an interview with the Keynoter, said he was interested in the seat and considering a run. Peterson retired to the Keys after spending 28 years practicing real estate, business and municipal law in the Chicago, Ill. area. Over the years there has been a number of legal and financial issues that have gone on with the School Board that I think they probably could have done a better job on, he said. Thats kind of my area so I wanted to run. Peterson received a bachelors degree in real estate from San Diego State University and his law degree from Western State University; hes licensed to practice law in Illinois, Wisconsin, California and U.S. District Court. He said a recently unveiled initiative by School Board Chairman John Dick and Key West Mayor Craig Cates to have the district give the city Glynn Archer School for use as a city hall contributed to his decision to jump into politics. Peterson called that proposal a financial blunder that the students, parents and taxpayers of Monroe County cant afford. After retiring, Peterson earned his teaching certificate from Florida Keys Community College and has on and off, substitute taught for the district at the Academic Connections for Excellence alternative school and the recently opened charter Key West Collegiate School.Peterson run targets Dist 3 incumbents seatOUR SCHOOLSKeynoter Staff

Chairman Aaron Bean on Friday acknowledged frustrations with the pace of Florida Health Choices, which supporters have long touted as a new type of marketplace for buying health coverage. But he also said officials want to make sure it is developed correctly. Were building this from absolute scratch,said Bean, a former Republican House member from Fernandina Beach. Were building a new marketplace. The Florida Health Choices board met Dec. 2 and continued trying to resolve issues needed to move forward. The latest: a dispute with a key contractor about loading information into an online portal that will serve as the programs backbone. Florida Health Choices said earlier this year that it hoped to start offering coverage in 2011. But under the latest timeline, employees of small businesses would be able to start enrolling in insurance plans in May and June, with coverage taking effect in July. Nevertheless, Bean pointed to what he indicated are encouraging signs. As an example, 11 health plans including major insurers such as Aetna, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida and UnitedHealthcare have indicated interest in taking part. We have big companies, we have small companies, we have companies all over the state,Bean said. Lawmakers approved creating Florida Health Choices in 2008 when Rubio, now a U.S. senator and national political figure, served as state House speaker. The basic concept is to create an online market that will allow people to shop for coverage with more flexibility than in the traditional insurance system. But some critics have long questioned the program because they fear it will lead to people buying inadequate health coverage. Initially, Florida Health Choices would be available to businesses with four to 50 employees and would offer coverage in the small-group insurance market. After businesses sign up, their employees would be able to choose among different coverage plans. In the future, Florida Health Choices would also be available to businesses with fewer than four employees. Also, it would offer types of health coverage that are not traditional insurance, such as allowing people to buy certain amounts of visits to doctors or clinics. Parts of the insurance industry have closely followed the development of Florida Health Choices, with Florida Association of Health Plans President Michael Garner serving as chairman of a vendor steering committee. Also, insurance agents have worked to make sure they dont get left out when people start buying coverage through Florida Health Choices. Were very anxious to see what the portal looks like and how it works,Tim Meenan, a lobbyist for the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors-Florida, said during the board meeting Friday. Even if Florida Health Choices begins operating in July, however, it could face questions because of the 2010 federal health overhaul. That law which Florida and other states are challenging in the U.S. Supreme Court requires each state to have a health insurance exchange,which is a similar concept to Florida Health Choices. Florida Republican leaders, who adamantly oppose the federal health law championed by President Obama, have refused to create an exchange. But it is unclear how Florida will comply with the exchange requirement if the Supreme Court upholds the 2010 law Florida Health Choices officials are trying to distance themselves from the federal requirement. Were not an Obamacare exchange,said Bean, who plans to run for a Northeast Florida Senate seat in 2012.Program aims to fill void on coverageBy JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAWe have big [insurance] companies, we have small companies,we have companies all over the state.

Friday nights District 16-4Avictory over Gulliver was witnessed by the biggest crowd in several seasons at the Bobby Menendez Gym. Gulliver, a privateschool power from Miami, arrived looking confident and with an array of coaches that looked funereal in black suits and ties. (Key West coach Anton Lopez and his assistants were in their usual athletic attire.) On the court, the Conchs were decidedly more athletic. Anthony Rice, Thomas Butler and JeQuan Lopez dominated the offensive boards, and cat-like guards Ryan Wagner and Tony Guieb harassed the Raiders They were magnificent at attacking the ball, said Anton Lopez as well as scoring and dishing off for impressive assists. The game was supposed to be the first big test for the Conchs, but after taking a 12-10 lead late in the first quarter, they never trailed. The 3-point-shot-minded Raiders fought back from a 12-point deficit to trail, 3125, at the half. But Key West opened the third quarter with a putback by Lopez and a spinning layup by Wagner, and before the period was over, the Conchs, with Rice (who had 16 points) and Butler (who had 14) bullying in for easy baskets, were ahead, 49-33. Guieb opened the final period with six consecutive points, and the Conchs breezed from there. Other scorers included Lopez with 12, Wagner with 10 and Guieb with 9. On Saturday night, Charlotte came calling, even bringing its cheerleaders. The crowd was smaller, but the Conchs, with a penchant for stealing the ball, kept playing fast and big, led by Butler, who scored all of his 16 points in the second half. Rice scored 15, Lopez had 13 and Guieb and Wagner combined for five high-arcing 3-pointers.Back-to-back victories in hoop matchupsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Hurricanes play Marathon at 6 p.m. Wed.Coral Shores boys soccer Hurricanes try to even their record and go one-up on a local rival today at Marathon High School. Its always a good game when we play Marathon, Cane head coach Jorge Bosque said Monday. Alot of times we dont know much about each other except for what we see in the paper, but the records really dont matter much when the game starts, said Bosque, the longest-serving prep soccer coach in the Keys. Its a local rivalry game. The Hurricanes (3-4) and the Dolphins (5-2) square off at 6 p.m. at the Middle Keys field.The Hurricanes had to postpone a planned Monday road trip to Terra Academy because of transportation issues.On Dec. 2, the Canes struggled in the second half in a 4-0 loss to Ransom Everglades. We had five starters out with injuries or other things, Bosque said. When you play a good team like Ransom, you cant have that situation.Defenders Hunter OConnor, Steven Chadwick, Jimmy Rhyne and T.J. Fernandez did an effective job of limiting the Ransom offense to a 1-0 lead at intermission, Bosque said. With so many starters out, we were shifting players into different spots where they werent used to playing, he said. Ransom was able to take advantage. Relief goalie Robert Lietaert played a solid half in the net, Bosque said. Coral Shores boys and girls teams play a home doubleheader Friday against Archbishop Carroll.

Afight in the stands, fueled by foul language, spilled onto the mat, and Guieb backtracked to get out of the way.Moments later, Key West athletic director Ralph Henriquez tried to restrain one of the combatants, a huge Pace wrestler. He threw me around like a rag doll, and I weigh 210 pounds, Henriquez said later to three police officers. I was afraid that if he had hit me he would have killed me. This is way too much for me.Henriquez, in his mid50s, was unhurt. The wrestler calmed down and no arrests were made but it was the latest ugly incident at a Conch athletic event. The most recent had occurred at a girls basketball game in November. The skirmish sullied more than five hours of spirited entangling of arms and legs at the eight-team Key West Duals, which was won by Pace and included the following snapshots:There was the Conchs 120-pound Jay Feathers, a freshman from Oklahoma, pinning his opponent in an early match as his burly coaches and his teammates, who rose from their folding chairs, roared with delight.

The good news is that fishing for sailfish is very good when the wind blows north to northeast. They are biting well on live ballyhoo as well as on kites with blue runners and goggle eyes. And, there are plenty of kingfish mixed in. When the wind blows east and southeast, its time to target dolphin. Even this late in the season, there are plenty of dolphin to be found while trolling weed lines at the reef edge. The reef has gotten pretty churned up with the steady winds of late. When conditions settle down, the snapper and grouper bite should be excellent. The same holds true for the patches and channel humps. Give these venues some time to recover, and the fishing will improve. Areal go-to right now is mackerel fishing in the bay. It has been awesome. If youre looking to load your smoker with Spanish mackerel, your opportunity is right now. And, if youd like our recipe for smoked fish dip, drop us an email at SeaSquared@ bellsouth.net. In Marathon, the mackerel action is red-hot 8 to 10 miles out in the grasses in 8 to 10 feet of water. Shrimp or cut baits, such as blue runners or pinfish, will do the trick.

The Canes (2-3) easily topped Princeton Christian, 73-17, in the Nov. 30 home opener as three Coral Shores players hit double figures. Defensively, the Canes shut out the 2APanthers in the second quarter and limited Princeton to just five points in the second half. It was nice to open up at home with a win, head coach Jay Sanderson said. The positive atmosphere in the gym was very exciting for both players and spectators. Alberto Anderson scored 18 points, Terrell Taylor netted 17 and Alex Gomex scored 13. Returning starter Aldon Todd scored nine points, and Hever Viguera hit for seven. The situation changed rapidly Dec. 1 when the Canes could not keep pace with St. Brendan, defending district runners-up, in a 6845 loss. Junior center Will Ismer scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting for the Canes while Todd was 5-of-6, including two 3-pointers, for 13 points. It was track meet out there and [the Sabres] were in better shape than us, Sanderson said. St. Brendans quick defenders pressured the Cane offense into turnovers that resulted in fast-break layups. We have to take this personal and get back to work, Sanderson said. We got knocked down tonight but I assure you, we are getting back up and ready to move on. Gulliver (1-2) fell to Key West High School on Dec. 2. Our guys were tired after three games in four days last week, Sanderson said. By Thursday, we should be ready to go up there and do our best.

The sophomore provided the spark the Dolphins needed with its two best players and starting goalkeeper unavailable for the game. It was a nice showcase for Savannah because it showed her versatility as a striker, coach Chris Bull said. Archimedean is new to the district this year and forfeited a Nov. 21 matchup to the Dolphins. They also showed up at 45 minutes late for Fridays scheduled 4 p.m. start. They were stronger than everyone had anticipated, but thats why you go into these things saying you have to be ready to play. They might have a reputation, but they might come out and be strong, Bull said. The Dolphins struggled early to contain Archimedeans top player, Feven BedardKhalid. She had some good foot skills and can hit the long ball so we had a tough time figuring it out. All the balls were going through her, Bull said. But Marathon adjusted its defense and largely controlled the pace of play, Bull said. Our team did well to figure out how the other team was trying to attack and we shut it down and controlled large portions of the game. We showed a lot of heart in getting the result, he said. Rodamers first goal came in the 29th minute after she crossed a ball into the 18-yard box to Brandi Spalten. Spaltens shot hit the crossbar and Rodamer scored the rebound to make it 1-0. Twelve minutes into the second half, the Dolphins were defending and Rodamer dropped back in between Archimedeans defense and midfielders. She stole a ball and fired a shot from 40 yards out that went high and just under the crossbar for a goal.

Ceja assisted on three of fellow junior Riley Durkins four goals in the game.Down to the wire on 4-4 draw gameMarathon High School junior Riley Durkin continued his torrid goal-scoring pace Friday, scoring all four Dolphins goals en route to a 4-4 draw with district rival Archimedean Academy. Just eight games into the season, Durkin has netted 16 goals for the 5-2-1 Dolphins. Marathon played poorly in the first half against an Archimedean team it knew nothing about heading into Fridays matchup. The school is new to the district and forfeited a scheduled Nov. 21 matchup. Archimedean played a physical style and scored a pair of early goals on goalie Ramarlo Robertson. Last years starter Raymond Crespo, who did well to keep the Dolphins in the game, replaced him. I lose one of my top defenders when I put him in goal, but he had a great game with some good saves, coach Jim Murphy said. The Dolphins trailed 2-0 at the break, but responded with two goals less than five minutes into the second half. Ricky Ceja assisted Durkin on both goals. Archimedean responded minutes later with a shot from 12 yards out to beat Crespo and take a 3-2 lead. The Dolphins tied the game when Ceja again assisted Durkin on a through ball to make it 3-3. Archimedean scored on a crossing ball just after the second half water break, but Marathon erased its third deficit of the game with just five minutes remaining. Seventh-grader Oscar Delgado took a fast throw-in and found Durkin inside the 18-yard box. Durkin beat his defender, and hit a sliding shot in from 10 yards out to tie the game at 4-4.

Animated, a white towel slung over her red shirt, she spent the game encouraging (and consoling) her players.Key West, led by senior Shaniya Watson, who scored 13 of the teams first 15 points, stayed in the game early, trailing 18-15 after the first quarter and 30-21 at the half.The Conchs, though, often looked confused on defense and allowed Gulliver to score 11 layups, five in the second quarter. In the final quarter, the Raiders turned to the 3-point shot, with Camilla Wirshind, Jequar Westbrook and Breanna Pulito all hitting from beyond the arc. Watson, who finished with 17 points, scored only two in the second half as her teammates, for the second consecutive game, failed to get her the ball.Justine Arteaga and Aaliyah Lucky each had 6 points, Shelisa Page had 4, Mikayla Stansbury scored 3 and Alexsa Rahming added 2.Afterward, Waters was proud of her players. Gullivers a great team, but we did great as a team, she said. We kept our frustrations under control. This program has been under a microscope an unpleasant incident involving a fan and Fabal had marred the season opener and were here to show what Lady Conch basketball is all about.New coach offers praise despite scoreBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorBASKETBALLMissed shots doom Dolphin boys teamMarathon High Schools youth and lack of size were exposed Friday in a 67-31 boys basketball loss to a strong Miami Country Day team. Making things worse was the suspension of senior big man Dwayne Ellis for violating team rules. We didnt have a big man presence. I was not upset with our effort, but we missed a lot of shots and couldnt get back to stop the fast break, coach Kevin Freeman said. They got a lot of offensive rebounds and points from put backs. The Dolphins trailed 196 after one quarter and 3217 at the half. The Spartans pulled away for good in the third quarter. We just came out flat in the third quarter and they dialed it up a notch on defense and caused some turnovers, Freeman said. Once everything starts clicking well be a pretty good team, but its going to take a while. Senior guard Trevelle Beckford led the team with 15 points and three rebounds, while freshman Nelson Rojas had seven points, four rebounds and a blocked shot. Peter Culver had five points and five rebounds. The Dolphins were scheduled to visit Archbishop Curley Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. The team is slated to host district rival Florida Christian School Friday at 7:30 p.m. Face rival Curley team on FridayBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBASKETBALLSoccer squads drop weekend games to rivalsIt was a lost weekend for the Key West High girls and boys soccer teams, neither of which could score a goal. The girls team, in an important District 16-3A game, lost on Friday at Archbishop McCarthy, 2-0, then lost on Saturday afternoon at Centennial, 1-0. McCarthy scored on two long kicks, one from 35 yards, and the Conchs got only three shots on goal. We were coming off games against teams we dominated, teams that dont have the speed and structure McCarthy does, said coach Scott Paul. Even more disappointing was the loss to Centennial. We werent ready to play, Paul said. The Conchs dropped to 5-5 overall and 3-3 in district. It was disheartening, to say the least, Paul said. But thats the reality of youth sports. The boys team (4-4-1, 14) lost to McCarthy, 2-0, Saturday afternoon at the Back Yard. The Conchs, depleted by injuries and also missing some players who were on a trip with the choir, had their chances but couldnt get the ball into the net. Both teams will play Friday night at Pembroke Pines Charter.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorSOCCERGreen wins the triple crownThere has only been one triple winner of the Hobie Wave Nationals since its existence until last weekend. Patrick Green of Put-in-Bay, Ohio, won by 32 points over the second place boat. The Upper Keys Sailing Club of Key Largo hosted the Wave National Championships over the three-day weekend Dec. 1-3 the sixteenth year for this Keys race weekend. Winds were reported at 15-20 mph on Friday for the event, then jumped up to 22 mph on Saturday. Sunday winds eased off a bit, but were gusting to around 20 mph. Sailors reported the conditions were ideal for speed, with heavy air and fairly flat seas in Buttonwood Sound. Put-in-Bay Yacht Club from western Lake Erie won five of the top six positions. Key Largo sailors competing included Dave White and Leah White. Leah is a two-time past National Champion in the class, and husband Dave has finished second place several times. This years winds proved too much and Leah White managed a seventh place overall. Dave White finished in fourth place overall. Barb Short of Key Largo, owner of Founders Park Watersports, finished second in the Womens Division, and 17th overall. Keys sailor Inger Hansen won third place for the Women. The Wave Nationals are sponsored by Catamaran Sailor Magazine.

Organizers note the butterfly garden at the refuge has grown into a serene setting for a small collection of artwork by Mielke and other South Florida artists. More than 40 people attended Steves retirement dinner at Caf Largo in Key Largo. Volunteers said they will miss Kletts presence and encouragement since he made volunteers a dynamic part of the refuge management program. During his 10 years with the refuge, Klett supervised the building of nests for Key Largo woodrats; a garden planted for the endangered Schaus Butterfly; the restoration of acres of wildlife habitat, monitoring and reintroduction of endangered species, and construction of peat mounds for egg laying nests used by American crocodiles.Klett also facilitated numerous education and outreach programs at the refuge during his time as manager.
