Murray, who said he wasnt surprised to learn that he wouldnt be reappointed, is known for his pointed criticisms of the district, and particular members of the administration. I doubt very, very much that Im going to go gently into the good night, Murray said, channeling Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. He also said that his departure from the board was foreshadowed by an ice-out from committee staff contact Ken Gentile, the boards chief internal auditor. Murray said he planned to deliver a statement to school board members Tuesday night: In recent months, the Internal Auditor has simply ignored me, thus rendering me all but useless. I expect that Mr. Gentile knew that my time was short and that he would outlive me. Not true, Gentile said. I havent been ignoring him (Murray) at all. He has accused me of that when I dont get information for him in his timeframe. Gentile said that he doesnt agree with the message and tone, of Murrays written and verbal communications with district staff.The board, since a year ago, has been trying to deal with communications principally coming from Larry. My view is to look at the process and look at solutions as opposed to looking for motive and personalizing the issue.Early on, Murray said, I was labeled by the districtMurray told he wont be reappointed to district audit and finance committeeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS French selling Villages only trash haulerThe French company that collects garbage in the Village of Islamorada is selling its solid waste division in North America. And, on Thursday, the Village Council will take up a recommendation to hire a subsidiary company for Islamoradas next wastewater system.Veolia Environmental Services made the announcement on Dec. 6. Its still not clear how the decision will affect garbage collection in the village. Richard Burke, president and chief executive officer for the companys North American operations, said in a prepared statement that we will continue with business as usual until a buyer is found. The move is aimed at paying down debt and raising cash. The Wall Street Journal reported that the company wants to trim about $14 billion with the proposed deal and increase cash flow by almost $7 billion. Burke said Veolia is confident it will find a buyer.Our solid waste business is self-sustaining, profitable and highly marketable, and its sale will make a significant contribution to the financial wellbeing of Veolia globally, Burkes statement read. Bruce Williams, the head of Veolias Islamorada operations, referred questions to the companys public relations department in Chicago. Denisse Ike, director of marketing and communications, could not be reached for comment by press time Tuesday afternoon. Ed Koconis, Islamoradas village manager did not return an emailed message asking how the future sale would impact garbage collection in the village. The decision comes as an evaluation committee appointed to recommend an engineering company to design, build and finance Islamoradas sewer system has chosen another Veolia division, Veolia Water, to do the job. The committee will make its recommendation official at Islamoradas Village Council meeting Thursday night at Founders Park, where the five-member board is expected to approve or deny the proposal.

Cunningham said that the School District has been preoccupied with crisis management instead of focusing on the needs of pupils. What I have seen is for the past four years this board and the district has really been in a crisis management mode, he said. I think we really need to get away from this crisis management mode and get back in to the business of providing these students with a world class education. Its time for somebody to step up that has that vision, that passion and that vested interest in the district.

Detectives say they found other stolen property when they search his vehicle. And further investigation turned up Seeger as the suspect in a number of car burglaries on the streets of Key Largo. Seeger has been charged in eight cases with more possible. Police say much of the stolen property has been returned to owners, but there is still more to be identified. During the course of the investigation, detectives say they found property in Seegers possession that did not come from any burglaries reported to the Sheriffs Office. In addition, Seeger told detectives hed committed an estimated 30 burglaries during his crime spree. We believe there are quite a few victims out there whose vehicles were burglarized who have not reported it, said Captain Don Fanelli.

But by the Oct. 28 deadline, only Veolia and Reynolds Water Islamorada turned in responses to Islamoradas request for proposals. Veolia submitted three proposals to the evaluation committee, which chose its $98.7-million plan to treat the villages wastewater locally, instead of piping it to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment Districts plant at mile marker 100.5. The plan calls for a 975,000-gallon-per-daycapacity plant to be built at mile marker 86.6. Aforce main would carry sewage flow from Lower Matecumbe Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Windley Key and South Plantation Key to the 3-acre facility.The facility would have 90-foot shallow disposal wells and treatment tanks. The Village Council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Founders Park, mile marker 87, bayside. From Islamorada,1AFishermens CEO hiring imminentFishermens Community Hospital officials told the Keynoter Monday that the Middle Keys medical center expects to announce a new chief executive officer as soon as today. The hospitals nonprofit board of trustees contracted with Tennessee-based Quorum Health Resources in August 2010 to manage dayto-day operations after its 25-year lease with Health Management Associates ended July 1. Quorum Chief Transition Officer Scott Landrum has filled in as CEO on an interim basis since July, but the board has been searching for his replacement. Quorum received a total of 67 applications and interviewed the top seven choices. Board Chairman Michael Cunningham said the top candidate has been chosen and that an offer has been extended to that individual. The announcement is pending the candidate who hospital officials declined to name being able to meet with his or her own board of directors. Longtime board member David Kirwan noted that the board and certain Fishermens employees were involved in the interview process. We all ended up with the same conclusion, he said. Kirwan also confirmed that recently hired Chief Financial Officer Michael Schimming and Lynn Mauck, chief operations and nursing officer, were candidates for the job but did not interview. Cunningham praised both Schimming, hired in October, and Mauck as valuable employees and said their not being picked for the CEO post speaks to the quality of applicants for the top job. The candidate pool was so strong, so we ended up with some fantastic candidates, he said. Landrum, Cunningham and Kirwan met with the Keynoter Monday and discussed a wide range of hospital-related issues. Among other topics: Kirwan said a special taxing district floated in 2009 by then hospital board member David Rice is not likely. Rice is now Monroe County mayor after winning a four-year term in the 2010 election. Kirwan said he was nave in considering the taxing district in the past. I would never say never, but thats not the best way to raise money for the hospital. Its not something thats on the radar, he said. The group said Fishermens has no major plans for new construction at the hospital in the near future. Instead, QHR has concentrated on painting the entire building and a facelift is planned at the front entrance to the hospital. Landrum said Fishermens employs a total of 193 employees, up five to 10 from HMA. That includes new nurses and an orthopedic surgeon, he said. Landrum also noted that patient numbers have increased since the changeover. The hospital is seeing between 15 and 18 patients per day, he said. Kirwan said Quorum is in the process of formulating a long-term strategic plan for the hospital. Kirwan said the hospital would consider a rehabilitation unit as part of that longrange plan. Apetition has been making the rounds in Marathon requesting one. Landrum said the plan likely wouldnt include the return of a maternity ward to Fishermens.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONHunt on for rig that disappearedSomebody took grand theft to a new level in Marathon last weekend.Alengthy tractor-trailer rig, loaded with a backhoe excavator weighing 70,000 pounds by itself, was reported stolen from a work yard on 122nd Street Ocean late Sunday.Somebody apparently got in it and just drove off, said Deputy Becky Herrin, spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. The complete rig, used to carry the Komatsu PC300-LC model backhoe, is 75 feet long and 12 feet wide so big that moving it legally requires an oversize load escort.Weve taken reports on a few big boats that were stolen, Herrin said, but I cant remember any vehicle this big.The Komatsu backhoe was set up to use a giant auger drill bit, 6 feet in diameter. The auger was loaded onto the Lowboy flatbed trailer but was not fully secured. The equipment was being used in construction of the Marathon municipal sewer system. Owned by the H.L. Chapman Pipeline company of Texas, the gear was listed as being worth more than $100,000. An exact cost estimate was not available at press time. Timothy Letcher, a Lehigh resident working with H.L. Chapman, told Sheriffs Office Sgt. Joel Slough that the gear was last seen Friday afternoon. Letcher discovered the rig gone when he returned to work Sunday night. No witnesses have been found who saw the rig over 14 feet tall being taken. Only one residence faces the work yard, and the people living there told Slough they did not observe anything suspicious. Awork flag that was in the cab of the Mack truck was found on the ground, along with bits of broken glass. That suggests the thief may have smashed a side window to gain access to the truck, deputies noted. Letcher said told Slough he saw the state weigh station on Plantation Key was closed Friday evening. Alaw-enforcement alert for the missing truck and equipment was issued but as of Tuesday afternoon, it remained missing. Deputies confirmed with the owners that no one had permission to take the truck and backhoe.CRIME A Komatsu backhoe exvacator used in sewer construction was aboard a tractor-trailer rig stolen from a Marathon storage yard late Sunday.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comSmith, Shaw seek re-election to boardApair of longtime Florida Keys Mosquito Control District commissioners will seek their fifth consecutive four-year term on the board in November. Key West resident Steve Smith filed last Tuesday, while Chairman Bill Shaw told the Keynoter he would make it official in the near future. Smith represents District 3 while Chairman Bill Shaw holds the District 4 seat. Im pleased with the direction weve taken over the years, Smith said. I think its going to be a good run with our new director; hes got some great ideas. Shaw told The Keynoter he plans to run for another four-year term. The third commissioner facing reelection, Joan Lord-Papy, did not return phone calls Tuesday. Smith and fellow commissioners hired the new director, Michael Doyle, in late July after Ed Fussell retired, having served 13 years with the district.Fussell was credited with turning the district into one of the most respected in the state, but openly clashed with Shaw and then-Commissioner Dick Rudell over budget issues and managerial style in recent years. Rudell died last year and Gov. Rick Scott appointed Phil Goodman to finish Rudells term. During the 2010 election cycle, Fussells $185,000 annual salary and what many critics said was a bloated budget were the topic of much debate. Fussell announced his retirement shortly after Upper Keys attorney Jack Bridges won the District 5 seat that had been long held by Fussells staunch supporter, Charles Langstaff. Langstaff pled guilty in June to homestead exemption fraud and faces $60,000 owed to Levy County and Monroe County for back taxes. Smith told the Keynoter he takes being an educated commissioner seriously, adding hes amassed 650 hours of mosquito controlrelated training over his 15 years on the board. Last November, elected commissioners throughout the state chose Smith to be their representative on the Florida Mosquito Control Association board of directors. Im not an entomologist, but I know what it takes to operate the basics of our district, Smith said. Shaw was on the board when Fussell was hired and the district was in serious financial trouble. Shaw says he wants to help reorganize a second time. We have a new director and two new commissioners and in years to come well be making significant changes to the operation and budget to make us more efficient. Id like to be around to help that process take place, Shaw said, adding that his next term would be his last. Pat Bowman filed Dec. 2 to run for Joan Lord-Papys District 1 seat.Qualifying runs June 4 at noon until June 8 at noon, and candidates must submit 513 petitions before noon May 7.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com MOSQUITO CONTROL SMITH$98.7 million price tag eyed

Back in June, board members, without the input of Chairman John Dick, voted to suspend the committee for 60 days and require ethics training after Gentile took evidence of an apparent Sunshine Law violation to the Monroe County State Attorneys Office.Just days later, board Vicechairman Andy Griffiths issued a public apology, paving the way for the suspension to be reversed.Murray used his departure to reference that previous dustup and Griffiths personally.Perhaps my greatest sin was to violate the Griffiths Rule: Praise in public, but criticize in private. Last week, Murray joined in criticism of the boards contingency plan to raise taxes if a Jan. 31 voter referendum fails to extend a halfcent switch in capital funds to operating expenses. Voters approved that shift four years ago and to continue that allocation formula school boards have to go back every four years for another vote. 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 said.Apolitical actFrom Committee,1A important for there to be topdown accountability running from the board, through the administration, on down to the schools; he also stressed that as a community, we need to demand better and expect results.We do have a highly skilled staff and they need to be held accountable, he said.

He has spent his professional career in the health and social services fields, with stints at the state Department of Children and Families and the Rural Health Network. He currently serves as president of the Fishermens Community Hospital board of directors. Aside from Cunningham and Peterson, Big Pine Key resident Dan Dombroski, director of the Boys and Girls Club of Key West, has expressed his interest in running for Mathewsons seat.Even though school board candidates compete for district seats, they run countywide in the non-partisan election scheduled for next August.

SAVE20GallonwithCARWASH($75.00max)Tom Thumb in Marathon US1 & Sombrero Beach Rd. at the light Fishing groups object to banAplan to create a large nofishing zone within Biscayne National Park near north Key Largo could remain under review by federal officials until next summer.The proposal to halt fishing in 10,522 acres of water, about six miles from Angelfish Creek on North Key Largo, has drawn fire from both commercial fishing and recreational fishing groups.Conservationists say the parks preferred alternative plan with a new marine reserve is long overdue and may not go far enough to safeguard coral and fish.The National Park Services own science clearly shows that fish numbers are down significantly, possibly to the point where they would be considered impaired, said John Adornato, South Florida regional director for the National Parks Conservation Association.The park has to take significant steps to protect the coral and fish, Adornato said Tuesday. Maybe the marine reserve should be even bigger. Commercial fishermen speaking to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at the state agencys November meeting in Key Largo offered sharply different views. Theyre pushing us into a smaller and smaller area where we can fish, said Key Largo lobster fisherman Ernie Piton, who works in the area. It would be almost unacceptable...They want to phase commercial fishing out of the park. Key Largo lobster fisherman Walter Rentz told the FWC he fears other trappers driven out of Biscayne National Park waters will move south to already crowded Upper Keys waters.Dont let the park do that to them, Rentz said. Weve got enough park as it is. Its getting ridiculous, were already pushed so tight. Since Biscayne National Parks 164,000 acres of marine area includes state waters, the FWC is charged with assisting the Park Service in drawing fishing regulations for the area.However, the Park Service also is required to follow its own fishery management plan to ensure that fish numbers remain sustainable.The marine-reserve proposal is part of Biscayne National Parks management plan, being updated for the first time in nearly three decades. Public comment closed Oct. 31 for federal staff to assess and respond to concerns. Ive heard there was a lot of support for the marine resource, Adornato said, but Im sure other groups were not as supportive. Acoalition of sportfishing groups including the Coastal Conservation Association and the International Game Fish Association objected to the marine reserve and possible fishing-access permits in its written remarks to the park. Conventional, equally effective and less restrictive fisheries management strategies should be evaluated and enforced before considering the implementation of marine reserves or other overly restrictive options, the group said. Adornato said, If half the trees in Sequoia National Park died, people would be freaking out and demanding dramatic action. The problem at Biscayne park is that most people dont see the corals that are dead or dying. The park has do do something.No-fishing zone could expand in park watersNORTH KEY LARGODraft plan gets major reworkingAnew Everglades National Park management plan that could add boating rules to Florida Bay likely will spend most of the coming year being reworked, a park planner says. We likely at least a year or so away from the draft park plan being released, chief Everglades planner Fred Herling said Friday. Controversy over Florida Bay had nothing to do with delaying the plan, which was expected to be released in 2010, Herling said. Concern over the federal budget and national economy do. As part of its new management plan the first major update in more than three decades Everglades National Park said it would consider rules that may restrict boating in Florida Bay shallows to protect seagrass beds. Various alternative plans ranged from not imposing any new bay rules to banning use of engines in waters less than 2 feet deep at low tide. No preferred alternative has been released, but discussion at local workshops suggested it would likely include some shallow areas where access could be restricted. Few speakers at 2009 hearings disagreed that seagrass on shallow-water flats in the national park has suffered from boat groundings and propeller damage, but measures the park should take to safeguard flats prompted spirited debate. As as compromise, the park in 2010 established a test pole-or-troll zone in Snake Bight, east of the mainland Flamingo visitor Center, to assess improvements and problems. The Florida Bay plan will not proceed until the park gets ready to move on its overall plan, Herling said. Large elements of that plan a suggested $78-million rebuilding of Flamingo facilities heavily damaged by hurricanes, and a new Gulf Coast visitor center are being rewritten because of cost concerns. Plans to building a new Flamingo Lodge already have been scrapped. Expenses needed to implement any Florida Bay rule changes are not major, and will not delay the plan, Herling said.Everglades looks at boating access and alternativesFLORIDA BAYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com 19-year-old ejected from vehicleArollover crash Monday afternoon on Long Key Bridge killed the car driver, a 19-year-old Marathon man. John Ramon Torres, 19, was thrown from the Toyota he was driving south over the bridge, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Torres lived in the Coco Plum area, an FHPreport said. FHPCpl. Pedro Reinoso and Trooper Rene Martinez reported that Torres apparently lost control of his 2004 Toyota, which swerved into the northbound lane, back to the southbound lane and then across the roadway again before crashing into the bridge wall on the northbound side. The vehicle rolled and ejected the driver, the report states. No other vehicles were struck in the accident, which occurred near mile marker 65 at 3:43 p.m. Monday. Torres was taken to Fishermens Hospital in Marathon, but was pronounced dead less than an hour after the crash. Torresfamily was notified. No information on funeral services was available at press time. Torres apparently is the 14th person killed on Florida Keys roadways south of Florida City so far in 2011. The fatal crash completely halted traffic for about one hour on Long Key Bridge, a two-mile span that connects Long Key and Conch Key. Traffic from both directions then alternated on one open lane for more than three hours. Backups were reported to be about one mile in each direction.ROAD FATALITYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comCoral restoration work shows some successNearly 10 years after a boat grounding destroyed hundreds of coral off Boca Chica Key, scientists now report restoration has brought recovery. But, they caution, the reefs are still in a state of decline. The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary report follows the decadelong work done to restore some 376 square feet of coral damaged Aug. 8, 2002 when the 36-foot cabin cruiser Lagniappe II ran aground on the Atlantic side of Boca Chica Key. Nearly 600 coral fragments were broken off as the hull plowed through 155 square feet of primarily boulder star coral.In a negotiated settlement, the boat owner paid $56,671 for the damage caused.In early October 2002, teams from NOAAdescended on the site, cleaning the substrate of algae before using masonry nails and a specialized type of cement to transplant 473 stabilized coral fragments. Based on monitoring reports, by 2009 the transplanted fragments were indistinguishable from an adjacent intact reference site; by 2010 there was more coral cover at the restoration site than at the reference site. The monitoring allowed us to document changes to the restored coral and measure the success of this restoration, Hatsue Bailey, a Sanctuary restoration biologist, said. With continued use of these methods, as well as additional monitoring, we learn more about habitat changes at this location and improve upon existing restoration strategies. Although damage from the grounding was repaired, over the study period total coral cover at the restoration site decreased 20 percent, while the reference site had a 50 percent decrease. Even though the restoration work largely returned the damaged area to baseline conditions, the circular patch reef has not been immune to larger, long term trends, the researchers said, noting the decline seen in corals throughout the Florida Keys and Caribbean. From Bailey and fellow restoration biologist Scott Donahues recently released report: The long-term decline in coral cover throughout the Caribbean and the Florida Keys has been well documented.But researchers find reefsoverall decline continuesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Photo taken in 2002 during initial site restoration,shows Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary biologists (above) reattaching more than 400 coral fragments to help restore the damaged area.After nearly a decade of monitoring, a 2010 assessment of transplanted corals off Boca Chica Key (left) indicates the colonies are thriving.Keynoter Staff

Wednesday,December 14,2011 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com D Teacher suspension goes to boardThe Monroe County School Board was set to decide after press time Tuesday whether to place on indefinite unpaid suspension a Stanley Switlik Elementary School teacher accused of berating his students and showing up for work intoxicated. Tim Coval, who was hired on Aug. 12, 1999, currently teaches second graders at the Marathon elementary school. In February he signed a last chance agreement, as part of another disciplinary matter and then, according to School District records, tested positive for alcohol on Nov. 9. At that point Superintendent Jesus Jara placed Coval on unpaid suspension pending board action. Jara recommended board members approve suspending Coval without pay until the conclusion of a pending hearing with the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings. We cant tolerate that behavior in the classroom with any kids, certainly not second graders, Jara told the Keynoter Back in February, Jara said the district was having issues, with Coval, described in the last chance probationary agreement as, verbally berating his class for an extended period of time, as well as overly aggressive conduct. He was yelling at the kids when they were taking tests, when they were getting their scores back, Jara said. Coval, a Louisa Street resident, earns $51,357.87 per year, according to district Human Resources Director Cheryl Allen; he has taught grades 2-4, all at Switlik. Per an administrative complaint completed on Nov. 28, by Jara, the formal reasons for the suspension are: berating and yelling at students; violating School Board policies [related to alcohol]; and engaging in conduct unbecoming for an educator.District cites coming to work intoxicated OUR SCHOOLSCounty looks to OK Stock Island stationStock Island residents need only make a trip to Big Pine Key for a preview of what that communitys long-awaited new fire station could look like. The Monroe County Commission is scheduled to consider a $185,364 redesign contract today with Key West-based architect William Horn. Horn designed the Big Pine fire station that opened in 2009.County Project Management Director Jerry Barnett told the Keynoter the Stock Island station would largely resemble Horns Big Pine design. Were going to reorient the vehicle bays and with this station we have to conform to the Florida Green Building Coalition standards. So there will be some changes for that, he said. That includes lighting, air conditioning, insulation and other considerations. The Big Pine station totals 8,000 square feet, including three 60-foot vehicle bays. There are eight living quarters, a kitchen area, dining/community room and a downstairs office. County staff had long been searching for a site to replace the existing Stock Island station, which is in disrepair. Barnett said the county could use most of the roughly $4.1 million budgeted for the project. The commission approved purchasing four Stock Island lots in February for $650,000. The properties are located just off the west end of MacDonald Avenue between 2nd and 3rd streets and cover 25,000 square feet. The lots are located across the street from the existing station. Barnett said if approved, the county will execute the contract and get started with the design within 30 days. Next up would be a request for proposals for a contractor. Barnett said construction could start at the earliest in six months. The commission is scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. today at the Marathon Government Center near mile marker 48.5.

EDITORIALBudget plan shuffles cardsLETTERS TO THE EDITORSupport referendumIt is critical that all concerned voters are aware that the Monroe County School Board will ask for public permission to transfer a half-mill tax (50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value) from its capital fund into the districts general fund. This will come in the form of a voter referendum on Jan. 31. All registered voters will be able to participate regardless of their party affiliation. It is essential to remember that this transfer of funds is a continuation of a previously approved referendum four years ago. The voters must approve the transfer of funds from one budget category to another every four years. This is not a tax increase but rather a shift of funds between budget categories.It is important to note that capital funds can be spent only on maintenance, construction projects, renovations, new schools and technology equipment. On the opposite side of the equation, dollars in the general fund can cover the cost of textbooks, classroom materials, and teacher salaries and benefits. It is the general fund that will benefit the students and help maintain educational stability for the School District.The School District is in relatively good shape in the areas covered by the capital funds. It is the general fund that appears inadequate to sustain a quality educational program for the students. Without the passage of this referendum, it is inevitable that school programs will be cut or scaled back. If history is an indicator, the first programs to be cut or curtailed will be what educators refer to as extras. Art, music, chorus, vocational courses, physical education and other electives will be scrutinized, scaled back or possibly eliminated in a cost-saving effort. Although extremely important to a well-rounded education, these electives are not mandated by the state as graduation requirements. As a result of Floridas below-average level of education funding and plummeting property values, most school districts in Florida are struggling to raise revenue to operate a quality educational program. The Monroe County School Districts plan is a viable alternative to increasing taxes. John Welsh Key WestScott touts increased funding for education and courts, but cuts offset any riseThe state giveth and the state taketh away. You dont need a Biblical lexicon to interpret the latest pronouncements out of Tallahassee, but it sure helps. Consider Gov. Rick Scotts budget announcement last week that he wants lawmakers to add $1 billion for state education spending. That sounds pretty good, especially since the governor made a point of linking Florida education with jobs, both now and in the future. Upon closer inspection, however, it turns out the $1 billion if it ever does get approved by the Legislature wont even cover the losses from $1.4 billion in education cuts imposed by the state last year. Another sample of that double-talk surfaced in the governors budget proposal earmarking $280 million in general revenue funds to help run Floridas court system. Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Canady hailed the move and praised the governor for coming up with a thoughtful means of addressing revenue problems that have made the funding for Floridas state courts chaotic for well over a year now. Since 2009, the courts have been funded heavily from filing fees based on the idea that users pay the freight rather than taxpayers. When foreclosure filings reached a peak in 2010, that made the books look good. But when the volume of those filings fell, guess what happened? The governor had to approve an emergency transfer of more than $45 million in September to keep Florida courts running. That was on top of a loan floated to the courts from general revenue coffers back in the spring. Canady said that if the governors proposal for $280 million in general revenue funds gets approved, it largely eliminates our current overdependence on volatile mortgage foreclosure filing fees. While that sounded good, on Monday the taketh-away part of the deal surfaced. Monroe County Clerk of the Courts Danny Kolhage learned the governors same budget proposal recommends cutting court clerksbudgets statewide by four percent across the board. That will be devastating, Kolhage told the Keynoter Last year, he returned $30,000 to the state by keeping down costs and not filling positions. A4 percent budget cut from the state means a $130,000 cut for the Monroe County Clerks Office. Theres no logic to it, Kolhage said. Not unless you accept the three-card Monte game being played in Tallahassee, where the hand that giveth is also the hand that taketh away all the time hoping the mark doesnt figure out the fast-shuffle scam.One group helps otherThe women and men of the Marathon Moose Lodge would like to give the Marathon Shrine Club a very big thank you for its donation of $500 to the Shop with a Moose Christmas project. Our fourth annual event was Dec. 11; Moose members raise funds to take children in need on a shopping spree. The day starts with breakfast at the Moose Lodge, a visit from Santa and then off to Kmart. Thanks to the Shriners, we were able to take 10 children shopping. The Marathon Moose Lodge is also active with the Heron-Peacock Assisted Living, Marathon High and Middle School fundraisers and scholarships, Educational Coalition of Monroe County, the Domestic Abuse Shelter, Grace Jones Daycare, Special Olympics, Kids in Special Situations and the International Coastal Cleanup, to name a few. Debbie Morelli Marathon The happy shoppers and helpers give a wave at Kmart. Dont believe commentsIt appears that former Monroe County State Attorney Mark Kohl and current State Attorney candidate Catherine Vogel may be attempting to politically benefit from a public attack that was launched by Janet Wood targeting State Attorney Dennis Ward. In the past, Ms. Woods reckless conduct defiled and denigrated the sacrifices of combat-wounded veterans who visited us during the Wounded Warrior Soldier Ride. The egregious nature of her behavior was reprehensible and will not soon be forgotten.It was discomforting to view her statements maligning Dennis Ward. It was based solely on the word of a compromised individual who created harm and discontent during an event that was designed to remedy the suffering endured by our young veterans. The healing these men and women were experiencing from the physical and psychology trauma of war was aberrantly altered by the abrasive intrusion of Janet Wood and her politics.I have not had any personal dealings with Mr. Ward. However, I have knowledge of his ethical and honest handling of some difficult legal matters that most other state attorneys would run from. He stood firm in the corner of a poor and disenfranchised innocent man, simply because it was his job and justice demanded it of him. Apparently, Mr. Ward is made of the right stuff. I hope this will lend some balance to the published statements. Im not on any political bandwagon. However, from where Im perched, I see Mr. Ward as having brought some integrity and decency back into the State Attorneys Office. Jessie Davis Key Largo Editors note: During a past political campaign for a County Commission candidate, Ms. Wood handed out campaign materials during the Soldier Ride in Tavernier. The candidate for whom she was stumping later apologized.Proud parade winnersThe winners of the Key Colony Beach Lighted Boat Parade presented by the Key Colony Beach Community Association on Dec. 11 were as follows:Best overall: Polar Express, Debbie Cronin.Vessels more than 30 feet: Best in class, Jolly Roger Doug Morgan; best theme: Lin-Z-Gail Lenny Meadows; most spirited: Vitamin Sea Bill Ferrel.Vessels less than 30 feet: Best in class: Dream Catcher Carl Zahn; best theme: Trivial Pursuit Ralph Gerkins; most spirited: Tucks Toy Tucker De Graw.

Principal Hammond Gracy and everyone we requested assistance from was extremely helpful and gracious in their efforts to make our day a wonderful experience. Lynn Goodwin, Holly Raschein Leadership Monroe CountyGovernors budget pushes Medicaid savingsGov. Rick Scotts proposal to pay less to hospitals to control spiraling Medicaid costs drew skepticism from some lawmakers and hostility from hospitals last week. Scotts plan is central to his $66 billion budget proposal, and ensures that his own history as CEO of a forprofit hospital chain that paid a record $1.7 billion in fines for Medicare fraud would attract new attention. Explaining Scotts plan to legislators Thursday, senior aides touted the governors background as having built Columbia/HCAinto the nations biggest and most profitable hospital network. The governor operated 343 hospitals, Scott budget director Jerry McDaniel told the Senate Budget Committee. He was very successful at it. He said his best paying clients were Medicaid and Medicare. He loved serving those populations. He was able to make a lot of money doing that. But unfortunately, the payer on this end is the taxpayer. Scott wants to boost public school spending by $1 billion next year and the only way to do that in a sputtering economy without raising taxes is to cut other programs. One of the biggest is Medicaid, a state-federal health care program for low-income adults and children that covers 2 million Floridians. Scott says he can cut Medicaid costs by nearly $2 billion by paying many hospitals less to treat Medicaid patients than they get now. He says rates vary widely and illogically around the state for the same services. The change would require approval by the Legislature and federal government, and close scrutiny of Scotts plan began Thursday in the Senate. The biggest losers would be hospitals in urban areas or that specialize in treating children, such as Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg, according to an analysis by a hospital lobbying group. Jackson, the hospital with the largest Medicaid population in Florida, would lose $133.5 million, according to the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida, a lobbying group for 15 of the states largest hospitals. All Childrens would lose $39 million and Tampa General would lose $32.5 million. Miami Childrens Hospital would lose $34 million. After Jackson, the biggest overall loser would be Shands Gainesville at $52 million. The teaching hospital, affiliated with the University of Florida, has long had strong political support from Tallahassee lawmakers. Republican Sens. Don Gaetz of Niceville and David Simmons of Maitland praised Scott for proposing such a bold cost-saving measure. Its a good start. Its an important discussion to have, said Sen. JD Alexander, R-Lake Wales, the Senate budget panel chairman. Others were less enthusiastic. Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, whose constituents rely on Shands Jacksonville, urged Scott aides to be careful that we dont compromise quality health care ... for these folks who need it the most. Jacksons getting hit. Miami Childrens is getting hit, said Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah. If were going to spread the hit we should do it around the state. Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich of Weston called Scotts proposal a disaster and added: I think its going to destroy the health care continuum in our state. Hospital lobbyists emphasized that the federal government pays a big chunk of Medicaid expenses through a matching formula. They said Scotts plan would save $385 million in state tax revenue but Florida would lose more than $1 billion in federal money. Hospitals say they are currently being paid from 48 percent to 72 percent of the true costs of care. Paul Belcher of the Florida Hospital Association said hospitals have absorbed $966 million in cuts since 2005, including a 12.5 percent cut this year. Contrary to perceptions, dozens of Florida hospitals are losing money, especially in rural areas, Belcher testified. We do not support either the magnitude of the cuts or the policy behind the reductions, Belcher told senators.Hospitals see $2 billion hit loomingBy STEVE BOUSQUETHerald/Times Tallahassee BureauMEDICAIDBe careful that we dont compromise quality health care ...for these folks who need it the most.State Sen.John Thrasher

PEREZ COFFMANGive finances a year-end checkupAs we head toward the end of the year, nows a good time to see if your finances are on track. Youre starting to get a clear picture of how this years turned out, said Sean Duncan, president of SMD Consulting & Accounting LLC in Frisco, Texas. Between now and Dec. 31, you want to have the opportunity of making changes to what youre doing and not doing it in a panic mode. Here are the areas to evaluate:Goals,prioritiesThere are numerous scenarios that could cause your financial goals to shift. For example, you may be looking to retire earlier or later than you had originally planned. Or the upcoming birth of a child may prompt you to think about diverting money to purchase a house. You should be able to look at your portfolio and have a reason for owning every investment. If you can no longer justify the investment, it may be time to think about getting out of it.In a similar vein, you should also reassess your risk tolerance. Are you still comfortable with what you own? Are you carrying too much or too little risk in your portfolio? Tax planningNow is the perfect time to review your tax status because many changes that youll want to make should be done before Dec. 31. If you are unsure of your tax situation due to a job change or changing income, run a tax estimate to see where you are, said Wade Chessman, president of Chessman Wealth Strategies in Dallas. Make sure you have proper withholding or that sufficient quarterly payments have been made. Personal and financial changes should signal a check of your withholding. Those include marriage, divorce, the birth or adoption of a child, the purchase or sale of a home, and retirement. Stock lossesIf you have a dog of a stock and that thing is never coming back, look if you can create a capital loss to offset something else, Duncan said.Thats whats known as tax-loss harvesting or taxloss selling. Its selling investments at a loss to offset a capital gains tax bill. Its typically used to limit the recognition of short-term capital gains, which are usually taxed at higher rates than long-term capital gains. If youre considering taxloss selling, make sure you dont let tax concerns be the sole driving force for how you invest. The wild card here is how Congress tackles the deficit issue and if significant tax reform is part of that.

Marco Rubio was speaker of the state House, the Florida Health Choices program expects to start offering health-insurance plans to small businesses in July.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: Adispute 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.Bean said 11 health plans including major insurers such as Aetna, Blue Cross 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. 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.Program aims to fill void on coverageBy JIM SAUNDERSNews Service of Florida SMALL BUSINESS

Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Arteaga:First a goat,then a heroAsecond is left in the fourth quarter. Key West Highs girls basketball team, desperate for its first victory, is tied, 37-37, with Charlotte. The Conchs energetic guard, Justine Arteaga, is on the freethrow line. The gym throbs. The senior focuses and shoots. The ball hits the backboard. It circles the rim. It hits the backboard again. It goes through the net. Its 38-37. Certain victory. Arteaga misses the second of the one-and-one. Charlotte rebounds and Arteaga, stunningly, fouls the TarponsSierra Rincones. There is no time left, but Rincones, on the line for a one-and-one, can tie the game or win it. The crowd screams. She shoots and misses. The Conchs pile on one another. Smiles flicker. It feels good. Arteaga will soon say. The victory Saturday evening at the Bobby Menendez Gym was especially meaningful because the Conchs had to play almost half the game without Shaniya Watson, their leading scorer. After scoring nine of Key Wests first 15 points, she left the game with four fouls with 6:02 left in the second quarter and the Conchs ahead, 15-11. She sat out the rest of that period and all of the third quarter. During that time, coach Tez Waters said, We came together as a team. There was Shelisa Page, displaying a feathery touch in the lane, swishing 10 points. And there was tiny guard Mikalya Stansbury stealing balls and driving for layups. Charlotte eventually took the lead, but it was only 27-25 when the fourth quarter began and Watson returned. Agoal by Watson, two free throws by Stansbury and a drive by Alexsa Rahming (who also missed time because of foul trouble) propelled the Conchs to a 31-27 lead. The Tarpons came back to tie it at 35-35, but another drive by Rahming put the Conchs ahead, 3735 with 1:24 left. By that time, Watson had fouled out. It was 37-37 when the last hectic 30 seconds unfolded with the Conchs having only four players on the court. Page missed a free throw. An inbounds violation gave Charlotte the ball with 4.3 seconds left. Their best player, Mallory Burton, tried a bank shot and missed and with the clock at 1.0, a streaking Arteaga was fouled to set up the final dramatics and her only point of the night. Amid the celebration, Page said, We had to step up we were tired of losing. (The Conchs had dropped to 0-3 the night before with a 45-42 loss at St. Brendan.) And what did Watson think of the way her teammates came through? I thought it was wonderful.Free throw wins game in final second, 38-37By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST HOOPSPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Justine Arteaga gets set to launch her game-winning free throw Saturday against Charlotte. Sailfish bite heavy on reef edgeStock up on your sailfish flags because youll be flying plenty of them this week. The sailfish are here, and its pretty much all you can catch. The key is finding the ballyhoo. Should you struggle to find live ballyhoo, you can still troll dead ballyhoo to catch the sails. Just troll a little bit slower than you would for dolphin. The area to hit is anywhere from the reef edge out to 200 feet. On the main reef, the yellowtail snapper bite remains very good. Theres plenty of grouper action there as well, with mostly blacks and gags at the end of the lines.Up on the shallow patch reefs and in Hawk Channel, theres great fishing for all sorts of delicious pan fish, such as grouper, snapper, hogfish, mackerel and more. Fresh shrimp is the ticket as well as live pilchards and small live pinfish.In the bay, the Spanish mackerel fishing remains excellent along with a pretty good mangrove snapper bite.

The Hurricane defense did not allow a score from the field, with the Carroll Bulldogs getting both goals off penalty kicks. Defensively we played a very good game, said head coach Jorge Bosque. The Canes moved steady veteran Tony Papp back to sweeper to anchor the defense while midfielder A.J. Paterson cut off several Carroll attacks. Robert Lietaert played the whole game in goal. Giorgio Deina, Jack Hatfield and Tyler Webb scored solo Hurricane goals as the team improved to 5-4. When we shifted Tony Papp back to sweeper, we moved Jimmy Rhyne up to forward so we could take advantage of his speed on attacks, Bosque said. The win came at a price. Steven Chadwick, a capable midfielder, went airborne after a collision and came down hard, breaking his collarbone. He will sidelined for the remainder of the season. Steven is a really good player who will be missed greatly, Bosque said. The Hurricane boys host Key West High School in a 6 p.m. rematch today.

Hes been trying to sleep mostly and going to the bathroom on his own. Krumholcs, a 17-year-old junior and native of Latvia, underwent surgery at 1 a.m. Sunday to repair two fractured vertebrae. He is not paralyzed.Astandout on this seasons team at 170 pounds, he was leading, 7-3, with 20 seconds left in his match when his Nova High opponent lifted him straight up and, from about four feet above the mat, dropped him on his head as Conch coach Chaz Jimenez screamed at the referee to blow the whistle.There is no wrestling move in the book even close to that it was an illegal move, Jimenez said.As medical personnel worked to stabilize Krumholcs, he looked dazed and said his neck was hurting ... but he could move his limbs, said Jimenez, who then rode with the wrestler in an ambulance that took them to the emergency room.CT-scans revealed the damaged vertebrae (C3 and C4) and a neurosurgeon was consulted. Later at the hospital, his teammates visited, and Jimenez said Krumholcs was upbeat. He was joking and making everyone laugh, the coach said. He is one of the strongest persons Ive ever been around. Most people would be wailing in pain. He wasnt. But he was upset about the possibility of not wrestling again. When Diana Krumholcs heard the news Friday night, she had her husband city lifeguard Roberto Llagostera drive her from Key West to the Stock Island hospital.

Hurricane head coach Tom Milkovich looked on with pride as freshman 138pounder Rion Hunter scored a 15-4 point win against his Doral opponent. I love the fact that our guys are taking them down, letting them loose, then taking em down again, Milkovich said of the 4-to-1 points advantage. Were getting stronger on takedowns and getting the points, Milkovich said. Overall, theyre doing a better job hitting the moves. Garcia had one of his best best tournament outings of the season in the home meet, Milkovich said. Garcia did a really great job. Alexander Lane, a senior at 170, scored a second-period pin against Doral. Sterling Hill, a junior at 195, continued to steadily improve with a 2-0 record in two matches Saturday.

But the Knights (6-0) nailed 12 of 14 free throws in the final quarter to fend off Coral Shores, 67-63. Just a week earlier, the Knights steamrolled Coral Shores (25) by more than 30 points in Miami. This was a significant improvement from the last time we saw them, said first-year Hurricanes head coach Jay Sanderson. It was the second straight game where we had a good team on the ropes but couldnt pull it out. Forward Terrell Taylor scored 26 points for Coral Shores and center Will Ismer scored 21.Standout Wesley Alcegaire scored 36 for the Knights, including 10 of his teams 13 points in the second.Curley pulled out to an 1812 lead over the Canes in the opening quarter before Coral Shores answered with 21 points in the second. Taylor hit a 3-pointer in his nine-point stanza while Ismer worked the boards for six points.Coral Shores tied the game at 20-20 and a Taylor bucket gave the Canes a 2726 lead before the Knights edged out to a slim 33-32 lead at intermission.The Knights used defense and speed to regain control at 49-42 headed into the final quarter, during which the Hurricane defense did not allow Curley any field goals.The Knights then tried to slow the pace, forcing the Canes to either try to prevent Alcegaire from beating them off the ball, or force fouls. The Canes went the foul route.It almost worked as Coral Shores chipped back within three points in the final minute. The Knights forced a turnover and used their prowess at the line to seal the win.Aldon Todd had a strong game on the boards for the Canes, while Alberto Anderson and Alex Gomez had their moments. Our guys have worked terribly hard, Sanderson said. Our fundamentals are getting stronger every game.If we can get the ball inside [Ismer and Taylor], we can score, the coach said. We need to get better at that.Coral Shores was scheduled to host Barrington Academy of Florida City on Tuesday (results pending at press time).

This is a great rivalry that is always contentious and physical, said Conchs coach Scott Paul, whose team has lost six consecutive times to the Hurricanes. On Sunday, Paul was still trying to ascertain where his team is after it lost an important district game at Pembroke Pines Charter, 4-1, on Friday night. We came in with a positive attitude and they had no dominating speed or player, he said. Giving up four goals, that floors me. Ahandball in the box led to a Pinespenalty kick and a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute. It was 2-0 at the half and 4-0 before Devin Mitchell finally scored for the Conchs late in the game. Two of Pinesgoals came on high shots over goalie Angela Martin that got in just under the crossbar. Like most female keepers, Angela is short, Paul said. The mood afterward was somber. We were confused as to what is going on, Paul said. No one is to blame, and were trying to sort it out. We all know what its like to play together, and we all know how to score. In a noon game Saturday at Stranahan in Fort Lauderdale, the Conchs bounced back with an 8-0 mercy-rule victory. Robyn DeRoche and Lauren Schoneck each scored three goals, and Kendall Galvan and Mitchell each had one. The Conchs are 6-6 overall and 4-4 in district. It is likely that they will finish fourth in the district, meaning they would have to play powerhouse American Heritage in the semifinals of the district tournament in January. Aloss in that game would keep Key West out of the state playoffs.Lapse in D unusual for soccer squadBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCERDurkin scores Dolphinssolo goalAdebatable penalty kick call was the difference Friday in a 2-1 Marathon High School boys soccer loss to Westminster Christian School. The Dolphins played the traditionally strong Warriors well throughout and appeared headed for a 1-1 tie when the foul occurred inside the 18yard box late in the second half. Westminster converted the penalty kick attempt to go up 2-1 and held on for the win. It was very unfortunate in the second half they had a guy in the box and he got sandwiched and they called a penalty kick. That took a lot of wind out of the sails, coach Lynn Landry said. He filled in for head coach Jim Murphy. Landry also coached last Wednesdays 5-0 loss to Keys rival Coral Shores High School and said the team was much improved. It was a very nice game for the boys. They played better in the Westminster game. They kept their composure and moved the ball a lot better, he said. The Warriors scored off an early corner kick to take a 1-0 lead, but junior Riley Durkin tied the game at 1-1 before halftime. He took a pass from Anthony Garcia and shot a ball left to right from 25 yards out for the goal. Landry said Durkin and fellow junior Ricky Ceja played well, as well as Connor Boyd at the holding midfielder position. He plays a very physical style, which is nice for that position, Landry said.

Alack of size and experience caught up with the Marathon High School boys basketball team in a Friday loss to District 16 rival Florida Christian School. The Dolphins trailed the Patriots who feature 6-foot8-inch and 6-foot-6-inch post players by just one point at the half, 16-15. But a 12-0 run to open the third quarter put Florida Christian up 28-15 and the Dolphins trailed 41-22 heading into the fourth. The final was 56-31. Theyre one of the top teams in our district, if not the top team. Defensively, we did great but couldnt carry it over to the other side. At the half we were 6-for-25 from the field. We had great shots but couldnt knock them down, coach Kevin Freeman said. Senior guard Trevelle Beckford had 15 points and six rebounds, while Peter Culver had five points and four rebounds. The Dolphins were scheduled to host Somerset Academy Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. The boys are slated to host Archbishop Curley Friday at 8 p.m. Lady Fins lose FridayThe girls basketball team also dropped a Friday contest to Florida Christian, 48-12.

Marathon is slated to host Colonial Christian Friday at 5 p.m. The Key West High boys soccer team, which split two weekend district games, will try to stay unbeaten in non-district games when it plays today at Coral Shores in Tavernier.The Conchs, who defeated the Hurricanes 3-2 in November, are 2-5 in District 16-3Abut are 3-0-1 out of the district. Our goal is to finish undefeated in our non-district games, said coach Rob Eggers, whose team, for that to happen, needs to defeat the Hurricanes today and Marathon on the road Friday.The Conchs are coming off a 5-0 victory Saturday over Stranahan in Fort Lauderdale, a game in which Justin Hamilton and Andres Jaime-Gonzalez each scored two goals.The other goal was scored by Aaron Ansell after a length-of-the field dribble drive. He was juking around people that was impressive, Eggers said. Eggers brought keeper Roderick Gil out of the net to play midfield, and Gil appeared to get a goal on a header but it was nullified by a penalty. It was a pleasant game, and their athletic director and fans were very nice to us, Eggers said. On Friday night, before an aggressive crowd at Pembroke Pines Charter, the Conchs, who were missing five starters, lost 3-1. We played great against a superior team that sent in wave after wave of fast, proficient soccer players, Eggers said. Austin Malby scored for the Conchs, who were tied, 1-1, at halftime. Pines scored twice in the final 20 minutes.

Junior Katie Landrys four-goal effort helped the Dolphins avenge a one-goal loss to the Warriors in last seasons district tournament. Marathon dictated pace of play for most of the game. Ive never beaten them and I dont think the schools ever beaten them, coach Lynn Landry, whos been at the helm for five seasons, said. Last year was a heartbreaker at the district tournament. Were improving and some of the younger kids are realizing we can play with Westminster and Palmer Trinity School. Marathon suffered a letdown the following day against one of the states top soccer programs in Gulliver Prep, losing 8-0, before defeating Keys rival Island Christian School, 6-3, on Monday. Landry scored the games first two goals early in the first half. The first came off a corner kick by Regan Durkin and the second came on a free kick from just outside the 18-yard box. Landry chipped the ball over the goalie and the ball deflected in off the top post. Junior Taylor Konrath scored off a through ball from freshman Savannah Rodamer. AWarriors defender stopped the ball, but Konrath controlled it and scored from about six yards outMarathon led 3-1 at the break, but gave up an early second-half goal after a miscommunication between goalkeeper Julietta Pezzella and defender Gaby Ceja. But coach Landry said the team kept its composure and put the game out of reach after two more Katie Landry goals. One came off a corner kick from 25 yards out and the other was a free kick from 35 yards out. Coach Landry said Saturdays performance was the combination of an emotional letdown from the night before and Gulliver being a talented team. We were hoping wed be able to celebrate the victory but the Gulliver game fell on the schedule. They are a great team. You dont come across a lot of teams like that in Florida, he said. Marathon led 5-0 over Keys rival Island Christian School at the half and gave younger players playing time later in the game. Taylor Konrath scored three goals, while Sydney Konrath, Marina Kay Wiatt and Brandi Spalten each had one. For Island Christian (4-41), Jazmine Rivera had scored two goals on four shots and Alexandra Montagne had a goal on three shots. The Eagles are off until after the Christmas break.

BUTCHERCops train for marine patrolsAs a group of three Florida police officers patrolled Biscayne Bay in a 20-foot center console boat last Wednesday, they received a call that a nearby bank had been robbed, the suspects fled the scene, shot and killed a gas station attendant and took off in a stolen boat.Moments later, the officers saw a boat that matched the description of the stolen vessel, which was crewed by three men who fit the descriptions of the suspected bank robbers.Tensions were high as the three officers drifted alongside the other boat, pistols drawn. They tied up side by side with the other boat, ordered the suspects to the starboard side of the possibly stolen vessel and ordered them to keep their hands on top of their heads and not to turn around.One by one, the suspects were searched, cuffed, given a life jacket and placed on the police boat. Officers then searched the stolen boat for more weapons. They found several pistols and a knife, but the potentially violent situation ended peacefully thanks to the careful tactics employed by the officers.The arrests were actually a drill, and the robbery suspects were really Miami Police Department SWATmembers Sgt. Gilberto Gomez and Officer Maurice Sodre, and Cpl. Clark Reese of the Pasco County Sheriffs Office.The pursuing officers were deputies Kevin Oglesby and Billy McCoy of the Orange County Sheriffs Office and Deputy Mike Joseph of the Martin County Sheriffs Office.The men were among dozens of officers who came to Miami to receive training in waterborne law enforcement from Tactical Advantage Consultants, a training company formed in 1985 by two members of the then-Florida Marine Patrol, which was merged with other agencies in 1999 and is now the law enforcement arm of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Retired FMPofficers Capt. Bob Knight and Maj. Mike Tucker began the company when their agency stopped providing marine law enforcement training for other agencies because of lack of time and manpower. Our colonel said we didnt have the luxury to spend time training other departmentsstaff, Tucker said. Then Bob and I said, lets just start doing our own classes. Since then, the TAC staff has trained officers in 48 states in marine patrol tactics, said Tucker, a Key West native who was state incident commander during the Mariel Boatlift in 1980. TAC staff focuses on teaching high-risk boarding, proper pursuit techniques and on-the-water firearms training. In one scenario, for example, a group of officers in one boat chased another group in another vessel. The officers in the boat being chased were portraying suspects who would not cooperate and pull over. The pursuing officers had to successfully lob a mock canister of tear gas into the fleeing boat while both vessels were traveling at high speeds. Instructors on that exercise included former Miami police Lt. Art Serig and Capt. Denis Grealish, current FWC commander for Lee and Charlotte counties. Serig and Grealish said police agencies send their officers and deputies to train with TAC because enforcing the law on the water presents a whole set of challenges unique from what many officers are accustomed to handling on the streets. This training is critical because its one thing to do forced take-downs on land, but on the water there are all types of conditions and moving vessels, Serig said. Sodre and Gomez, for example, are highly decorated tactical officers who often face combat situations on the streets of downtown Miami. But both veteran cops said they needed this training to prepare for potential assignments patrolling the citys waterways.Knight said more police agencies are assigning their men and women to patrol rivers, lakes, bays and oceans, but staffing the marine divisions often consists of little more than seeing who on the force has driven boats before. The training academies most of the time do not prepare officers for marine patrol situations. They know we do, and they call us, Knight said.The company has also gained an international reputation and recently trained Chinese security personnel in waterborne law enforcement.At last weeks training sessions, held at the Miami Marriot Biscayne Bay, officers came from locations as varied as Seattle, Wash., Grand Cayman and Wilson County, Tenn. This is the best training Ive received in my 14-year career, said Reese, the Pasco County deputy.Keys natives company leads the exercisesBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comLAW ENFORCEMENT Deputy Mike Joseph (above) of the Martin County Sheriffs Office covers fellow officers portraying robbery suspectsduring the training.Miami police officers (left) Sgt.

In its 21st consecutive year, the popular weekly lecture series will consist of 13 presentations Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. Since the talks begin after normal operating hours, the park gates will reopen at 7 and remain open until the seating capacity of Pennekamps visitor center is reached. This years topics range from hurricanes and coral bleaching to native orchids and birds of the Keys, from ocean pollution to missiles in the Everglades, said park Manager Pat Wells. We are grateful to our speakers who make it possible for us to provide high quality interpretive programs for the residents and visitors of Key Largo and the Florida Keys. Seating is limited. Temperatures in the auditorium vary and a sweater or light jacket may be desired. Bring a cushion to sit on. The complete schedule of speakers and topics will be released shortly. For more information, call Elena Muratori, Pennekmap services specialist, at 451-1202.13 sessions are planned at PennekampKEY LARGO

You cant go wrong by thinking boating safety. The gift ideas are almost endless and many are relatively inexpensive. For Dad, how about a rearming kit for his inflatable life jacket, or one of the new variety of 12-gauge flare guns with attached assortment of flares? Of course, if you can afford a more expensive gift, a marine-band VHF radio or a portable handheld EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) can be extremely useful while fishing or pleasure boating (be sure to register the EPIRB after purchase or rescuers may be delayed in responding). Mom will be safe and stylish while sunbathing on the deck in a wraparound-the-waist belt pack lite life jacket that wont interfere with her suntan maintenance. A CO2-charged fanny-pack model also is available. Its unobtrusive yet readily accessible if the need arises. Stocking stuffer ideas might include:AU.S. Coast Guardapproved fire extinguisher.Afirst-aid kit in a watertight container.Nautical charts for areas the family likes to visit.Asignaling kit, including mirror, whistle and air horn. If its been a while since your family coxswain has had a boating refresher course, local Coast Guard auxiliaries offer inexpensive courses on such topics as boating safety, understanding weather, nautical rules of the road and more. Watch these pages in future months for details. Some of the most valuable gifts dont cost anything but a few minutes of your time. For example, you can schedule a free vessel safety check with your local Coast Guard auxiliary flotilla. To find a local flotilla, go to www.cgaux.org No matter what level of enthusiasm or how many years your family mariner has been boating, any of these items can help make boating a safer, more enjoyable experience. Consider giving the boating enthusiast in your family a lifesaving gift this holiday season. This was prepared by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.Inexpensive gifts focus on safetyON THE WATER
