WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,JANUARY 11,2012 VOLUME 59,NO.3 25 CENTS Runners in the Ragnar Relay Florida Keys make their way down to Key West from Key Biscayne.This was on Saturday,the second day of the 199-mile trek.The relay,which drew teams comprising more than 3,600 runners along with their support crews,clogged U.S.1,with motorists from Key Largo to Key West complaining about massive traffic delays caused by the event.Not complaining were Key West hotels and restaurants,which got a weekend boon from the event.Photos courtesy RAGNAR RELAYKEYSWIDE RELAYFEMA probation cost:$896,900Nearly 18,000 Monroe County policy holders in the National Flood Insurance Program could be on the hook for nearly $900,000 combined in penalties if a Federal Emergency Management Agency threat becomes reality Thursday. Friday, the agency plans to formally tell the county its on probation in the program come May 10. For the 17,938 policy holders in unincorporated Monroe policy holders in the municipalities arent affected the most immediate affect will be having to pay an extra $50 when their policies come up for renewal. That totals $896,900. FEMAspokeswoman Mary Olsen said the $50 would be added to the premium of every new or renewed flood insurance policy sold within the county for a period of no less than one year from the effective date of probation. Where does that $50 go? The probation surcharge helps highlight to the community and flood insurance policy holders that the communitys floodplain management program is non-compliant with NFIPcriteria, Olsen said. The probation surcharge funds go into the National Flood Insurance Fund. The funds help offset the extra administrative costs of FEMAhaving to initiate and administer the probationary action. I think its FEMAs way of trying to encourage property owners to put pressure on their county commission, Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger said.

The unwanted snakes South Floridas poster reptile for the dangers of exotic pets apparently have the ability to swim across Florida Bay from the Everglades. The study conducted by researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey shows pythons can tolerate saltwater for limited periods, likely long enough to swim to new territory.It was hoped that saltwater would naturally hinder pythonsability to expand their range beyond the Everglades, said lead researcher Kristen Hart, a USGS ecologist. Unfortunately, our results suggest saltwater alone cannot act as a reliable barrier to the Everglades python population.That means the big snakes may invade nearby islands such the Florida Keys, she said. Pythons can grow to more than 12 feet long; specimens up to 10 feet have been found in the Keys. One of the first pythons discovered in the protected hammocks of North Key Largo was found in 2007 when it swallowed an endangered Key Largo woodrat that was tagged with a radio tracker. The radio tracker was inside the snake.

Money could clearly be the limiting factor here. But when I look at the need and the asbestos problem ... my thoughts are lets talk about razing the whole area, including the sheriffs station, and build a complex, he said. Monroe County put a halt to the $907,000 courthouse renovation on Dec. 27 after asbestos was discovered on the main courthouses ceiling. The county has budgeted $529,600 for the project, while the 16th Judicial Circuit budgeted 400,000.

In a 4-2 vote on Monday, the state Senate Education Committee passed Senate Bill 344. It would allow school districts to sell advertising space on the sides of their buses, putting 50 percent of revenue back into their transportation budgets, with the other 50 percent split evenly between discretionary budgets and investment accounts. Prohibited by the bill, sponsored by Sen. Bill Montford (D-Tallahassee), would be ads for alcohol and tobacco, sexual material, anything that distracts from safety equipment, political ads and messages that could be discriminatory. Monroe County School Board member Robin SmithMartin, who has two schoolage children, said he has mixed feelings about the proposal. I feel like were so inundated with commerciality that kids need to focus more on school, he said.

Ron Saunders of Key West on Tuesday delivered the Democrats response to GOPGov. Rick Scotts opening remarks for the 2012 legislative session, and didnt hold back the criticism. In last years legislative session, Saunders said our Republican colleagues who control the Florida House spent more time advancing their political agenda than fixing problems in our states economy. House Democrats believe that the Legislature should spend less time protecting a partisan political advantage and spend more time protecting and expanding Floridas middle class. He was referring to the redistricting process, which the Republicans control. Scotts remarks focused on job creation. Saunders spoke a lot about social issues. While we support better funding for our public schools, Saunders said, we dont support the Republican strategy of pitting the needs of Floridas students and school teachers against the needs of pregnant women and sick kids.

Published: 01/11/2012 The Keynoter, Marathon, FL33050 tourists walking to their car at a Key Colony Beach residence. We dont keep track of numbers but weve been called out numerous times for pythons, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Bobby Dube, an agency spokesman in Monroe County. That pythons occasionally turn up in the Keys cannot be disputed. However, how the big snakes get here remains an open question. Were they all released or escaped pets or did some reach the Keys on their own? Reptiles, in general, have poor salinity tolerance, Hart said. To see if pythons could make their way in saltwater, the USGS team conducted an experiment using python hatchlings taken from the Everglades, where the species has taken hold amid the freshwater and brackish wetlands. Young snakes exposed to nothing but saltwater survived for a month. Those with access to brackish water survived up to five months. Researchers said it appears larger snakes, which have access to rainwater to drink, could persist even longer in saltwater environments. This study demonstrates the distinct possibility that pythons could spread to new suitable habitats one estuary at a time, Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt said. The fact that this study has ruled out one of the most hoped-for forms of physical barriers, saltwater, as preventing the spread of invasive pythons in Florida puts even more onus on human action to prevent the spread of these damaging reptiles. An agency spokeswoman said there is no evidence that pythons have established a breeding population in the Keys.Florida lawmakers in 2007 tightened regulations for people who want to own pythons. Previously, young pythons could be bought cheaply at pet stores.From 2000 to 2010, Everglades National Park staff reports nearly 1,700 pythons were removed from the protected wetlands.Saltwater no problemFrom Pythons,1A threatenedor endangeredspecies habitat. Its part of a 2010 settlement of a 1990 lawsuit three environmental groups filed against FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The suit claimed that allowing flood insurance in endangered-species habitat violates the Endangered Species Act. The county claims, in part, that it shouldnt have to be responsible for determining if land holds habitat since the county wasnt party to the lawsuit. Shillinger said while development is still possible if lots are found to contain habitat, the county could be on the hook for the lands market value if the owners sued claiming the county denied use of their land through regulation. County officials say the overall price tag could be $65 million or more. Shillinger said May 2010 FEMAcharts show there are roughly 33,500 NFIPpolicies Keyswide. Only the 17,938 in unincorporated Monroe are at risk because unlike the county government, the municipalities have agreed to terms of the settlement. Theyve got a lot fewer parcels at issue. They have fewer species they have to contend with, and by definition cities are more dense or developed and have less habitat than the unincorporated part of the county does, Shillinger said, noting eight species are at issue. Shillinger has said the county will sue FEMA and Fish and Wildlife after notice of probation arrives. The suit would allege FEMAs settlement violates a number of federal laws including the Endangered Species Act and Administrative Procedures Act. Meanwhile, the County Commission is expected to discuss adopting a law by which to implement FEMAs program and avoid probation at its meeting Jan. 19 in Key West. Shillinger said FEMA drafted a law it wanted the county to use, but that county staff prepared the one the commission will consider. Were going to adopt our own ordinance in a way thats going to protect Monroe County taxpayers so were not on the hook for their responsibilities, he said.Renewals to cost moreFrom FEMA,1A A AELDERJosephineJoJenkinsElder JowasborninCusseta,GA onMay1,1932anddiedon December29,2011inSouth Miami,FL.Sheresidedat 29059MagnoliaLane,BigPine KeywithhusbandB.Leon Elder.Shehadtwodaughters andoneson,PamelaPotter Feaster(Allan),GingerPotter Terry(Cliff)andMatthew Wilson(deceased).Grand childrenChristinaTerryand ShawnTerry(deceased).

Wood storks coming backWood storks seem to be making a successful comeback in South Florida and elsewhere. Considered one of the key indicator species for the health of the Florida Everglades, wood storks have been listed as endangered since 1984. The Everglades once supported a nesting population of anywhere from 5,000 to 15,000 pairs, according to Everglades National Park. By 1995, fewer than 500 pairs of wood storks were nesting in the park and Big Cypress National Preserve. Federal researchers proposed changing the wood storksendangered designation to threatened five years ago, and have been working on updated recovery plans. Last week, the Center for Biological Diversity agreed it was time to change the listing. From the brink of extinction, the wood stork multiplied to 12,000 nesting pairs in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, said Marty Bergoffen, endangered species organizer for the group. Resembling a large ibis but with a bald head, wood storks occasionally can be spotted in the Keys, and along the 18 Mile Stretch of U.S. 1 south of Florida City. They are the only stork species that breeds in the United States. The beautiful wood stork is just one of hundreds of species the Endangered Species Act has successfully put on the road to recovery, Bergoffen said. If declared a threatened species, wood storks would retain most of the protections they receive as endangered, he noted.SOUTH FLORIDA ENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWAn endangered wood stork perches in mangroves along the Key Largo shoreline in December.The unique bird, considered a key indicator for the health of the Florida Everglades,seems to be making a comeback from near extinction.Federal listing may be downgraded to threatened a t t h e OLD WOODEN BRIDGE FISHING CAMP Big Pine Key,Florida N O N A M E R A C E 5K WALK/RUNSATURDAY,JAN.14,2012 8AM A nnual 12th Sponsored by The Domestic Abuse Shelter For a registration form go to:www .domesticabuseshelter .com www .southernmostrunners.com C o o r d i n a t e d b y : Key West Southermost Runners Subscriptions 743-5551

Jara a short-timer?With Superintendent Jesus Jara seeking another job that would see his departure June 1 if hired, the Monroe County School Board is expediting its search to find a successor. Although still in the preliminary stage, there already seems to be disparate opinions on the board about how to conduct that search using a third party to scour the nation for applicants or, on a shoestring, targeting regional candidates. Last week, Jara applied for the open superintendents position at the Palm Beach County School District, headquartered in West Palm Beach. Hes one of 25 applicants for the $225,000-peryear job, which features a three-year contract. Jaras gubernatorial appointment as Keys schools chief expires in January 2013. In December, he asked board members to consider giving him a multi-year extension. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Jara to replace Joseph Burke, himself appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009 (Burke left last summer to head Lee County Schools in Southwest Florida). Burke replaced the ousted Randy Acevedo when Acevedo was charged with felony misconduct. Acevedo was the Keys last elected superintendent; voters have since decided to let the School Board hire the islandstop schools official. Of the Palm Beach County job, Jara said, If I wouldve gotten a three-year contract here, I probably wouldnt have applied. I think the board wants to, come January or February, have a discussion on what theyre going to do here. If they want to do a search, Ill apply. I think Ill be the first applicant. As for a one-year deal brought up by board members: I would not be interested. Jara earns $135,000 a year in Monroe County. His wife and three children live in Miami while he rents a place in Key West and commutes on the weekends. Given that opportunity for him, board member Robin Smith-Martin said, I think we should probably move the search up. Ideally, Id say we could do a national search but I think were going to have a meeting of the minds on that.That may well be the case, according to board Chairman John Dick: I dont know if we need to do nationwide, he said. Im not going to spend a lot of money on this thing.Dick also said Jaras candidacy for the Palm Beach post puts a lock on the need for the School Board to organize a process to hire a superintendent, something its dragged its feet on.Jara, 42, said finalists for the Palm Beach job would be identified by Jan. 18, followed by interviews between Jan. 30 and Feb. 14, with a hire in early March for a June 1 start date.My wife and I had a discussion and really felt it was just an opportunity I couldnt pass up, Jara said. Im excited but we still have a lot of work here in Monroe County we need to do. Smith-Martin said finding a qualified superintendent would be difficult given the realities of life in the Florida Keys. We dont pay a lot and this place has a high cost of living, he said. More specifically of the School District, Its always a budget crunch, low morale, low public support. Who on a national level is going to want to do that? Taking another route, board member Andy Griffiths has set up a Feb. 27 workshop with Wayne Blanton, executive director of the Florida School Boards Association and frequent search consultant, to inform the board about how the process might work. He said hed work to get as many potential community leaders who will in fact be involved in the process to attend the workshop.But until Jan. 31, job one is trying to convince voters to pass a referendum allowing the transfer of more than $9 million from the capital budget to the operating fund.Superintendent is hoping for Palm Beach jobBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Wednesday,January 11,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com D DISAPPEARING SCREENSFor Doors and Windows Single & Double Entry Patios & French DoorsServing Key West to Key Largo 305-394-3984or email:bpk591@att.net One of the most listened to, talked about & imitated Big Band of all time.

Originally it was approximately a sixto eight-month project and this is going to cause a delay, county Project Management Director Jerry Barnett said. He added that the county was in the process of soliciting proposals to remove the asbestos when the mold was discovered. Thatll increase renovations because we have to tear down the drywall and make sure we get all the mold out, he said. Meantime, the county has put a trailer in the parking lot to serve as a temporary courtroom.Trial Court Administrator Holly Elomina said acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker has been operating solely out of that trailer. Circuit Court Judge Tegan Slaton also holds family court there, while Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin holds juvenile and drug court there.The county has moved the once-monthly traffic court into the Marathon Government Center.We knew it was going to be a disruption regardless of the asbestos, Elomina said. Were trying to fit everything in with one courtroom. We worked out a scheduled for the next six months.Elomina said no jury trials can be held in Marathon until the rehab project is complete. Becker presided over three jury trials in Marathon in 2011. We have no way of selecting a jury because the courtroom is too small. [Becker has been] doing everything else there that she can except hold a jury trial, she said.Renovations for the main building include Americans with Disabilities Actcompliant bathrooms, new flooring and seating, repainted walls and new drop ceilings, among other things.Aproponent of economies of scale, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said he plans to discuss Neugents consolidation idea with Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt.Im going to ... see what the citys needs are and if it makes sense to collaborate on a government complex.

Montford, the chief executive of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, will now take his bill to other Senate committees for further analysis and changes; House Bill 19, a piece of companion legislation, is awaiting committee review.If passed and signed by Gov.

Hollywood police have been unable to find any of Tylers relatives.Broward woman is located in Middle KeysCRIME FRONT MEEGANBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBooker takes case to EEOCMonroe County School District administrator Sunny Booker, the target of a second internal district investigation, is seeking federal help in dealing with her employers.In mid-December Booker, the former principal of the Academic Connections for Excellence alternative school and now a traveling assistant principal, filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission a request for mediation with district officials.She said Tuesday that process is moving forward and the next step would be a formal notice to the district asking for its participation.Asked what specifically prompted her to file a complaint with the EEOC, which helps enforce federal law banning discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability, Booker demurred, saying she had to sign a confidentiality clause. Im just looking for some assistance, she said. I dont feel Im being treated the same as I have always been treated. I think every person has the right to work in a place where theyre allowed to work without harassment.In November, Superintendent Jesus Jara formally reprimanded Booker following an investigation over how she raised money and paid for a graduation luncheon. Following that, Jara launched a separate investigation into credits awarded to students at the alternative school.Essentially, Jara explained that ACE students were earning more credit hours through Web-based instruction than seemed reasonable or realistic. Booker said she is preparing a report detailing schedules and credits earned that will vindicate her of wrongdoing. Part of the problem is that everything has been so public, she said of the district investigations. Im learning about it in the paper. She also considered the potential long-term career damage even if she is found to have done nothing wrong. Even when youre clear, are you ever really clear? It really hurts your profession, she said. Thats pretty major. Id like to see that solved so that I can get back to the business of caring for kids and education. Aside from mediation, the EEOC also generates socalled right to sue letters, which are required before a discrimination complaint can amount to a civil lawsuit. Robert Cintron, Bookers attorney, explained, You have to have a right-to-sue letter. That says the EEOC has investigated your complaint and were either going to take some action on it or were going to take no action on it, but if you want to file a lawsuit, you can now do that. He said the appropriate venue for such a filing would be U.S. District Court in Miami. Booker is an 11-year district employee and earns about $80,000 annually.Administrator says district targeting herBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Zahn, DeNeale sent back to officeFor the second time in as many years, there will be no election on Key Colony Beach.City Commission incumbents Geraldine Zahn and John DeNeale were automatically re-elected Tuesday when no challengers filed to run against them by the noon qualifying deadline. Zahn was elected in 2008 and won a third consecutive two-year term. DeNeale was first elected in 2010 and won his second term on the board. Mayor Ron Sutton and Commissioners Jeff Vorick and Mary Schmidt ran unopposed in 2011. Both Zahn and DeNeale told they Keynoter they appreciate what Zahn referred to as a compliment from Key Colony Beach residents in running unopposed. I think the whole commission is appreciative of the vote of confidence the people have given us. Its a small citizenry thats pretty involved and its great, DeNeale said. I think thats what this says, that the residents feel confident with the way were handling the city business right now and that we can keep doing it, Zahn said. Zahn said the commission prides itself on keeping taxes manageable in the small Middle Keys city, and thats what she aims to do in her next term. Were going to hold the line to the best of our ability while maintaining the quality of the city, she said. DeNeale said hes already working on some long-term planning for the city. He said the city needs to save money for future projects like road repaving, stormwater drainage and canal dredging. I want to see more planning. Im working on a fiveyear plan for the whole budget. I think thats going to be well accepted, he said. Candidate qualifying on Key Colony Beach ran from noon Jan. 3 until noon Tuesday. The deadline to submit just eight signed petitions to get on the ballot was Dec. 6.Commissioners are re-elected automaticallyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACHShelter could move to new siteFacing a lawsuit from a condo association, Mayor Craig Cates is pushing to move Key Wests homeless shelter and expand its services.The Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, on county-owned property on Stock Island next to the Monroe County Detention Center on College Road, houses around 140 homeless men and women each night in armytype canvas tents adjacent to a shower trailer. In August attorney Bart Smith, on behalf of the homeowners association for the next-door Sunset Marina Condominiums, sued the city in Circuit Court alleging the shelter is a nuisance and was built in 2004 in violation of local and state land-use laws. Last week, City Attorney Shawn Smith filed a response, denying more than half of the 123 specific allegations made by the condo association, and adding that the statute of limitations for claims has passed. Shawn is comfortable we can win the lawsuit and keep it there, Cates said of KOTSpresent location. But he said he wants to move the facility, anyway, to the former Easter Seals building, owned by the city, at 5220 College Road. Its next to the Florida Keys Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Florida Keys Mosquito Control District building. Cates said that instead of fighting the lawsuit and potentially having to reconstruct KOTS on the county property, We move it to property the city owns so we can have more control of it. Theres no housing close to it and its separated by the houses from the golf course.KOTS is open from sun up to sun down and the neighbors complain of people congregating along College Road either waiting for the shelter to open or hanging out after it has closed.To quell that, Cates envisions the new facility staying open during the day and providing access to social services, a place to keep belongings and meals that otherwise are served at St. Marys soup kitchen on Flagler Avenue. If we move them to the other location, they wouldnt have to leave, he said. They wouldnt have to be wandering through the streets all day. It would be much safer for everybody. Itd be better all around to keep them in one location all day.Cates said he would bring the idea to the City Commission at its Feb. 7 meeting. Cates also said the citys Planning Board would consider the zoning land-use designations applied to the Easter Seals building to ensure that KOTS would be an appropriate use for the space.Easter Seals building eyed for homelessBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTBoater severely injuredACanadian man suffered serious leg injuries Sunday after a boating accident near Angelfish Creek, off North Key Largo. Thomas N. Davidson, 52, of Ottawa was piloting a 16foot Dolphin flats boat in a side creek off Angelfish Creek when he fell overboard while the vessel was moving, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The boat circled back around and struck Davidson, causing severe cuts to one leg, likely caused by the prop. People riding personal watercraft in the area saw the flats boat circling, then discovered the injured Davidson clinging to mangroves. The PWC riders took Davidson to the Ocean Reef Club for initial treatment at the private communitys medical center before he was flown by helicopter ambulance to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. This very easily could have been a fatality if the [PWC operators] didnt happen to be there, said Officer Bobby Dube, an FWC spokesman. It could have been a lot worse. The Dolphin boat eventually crashed into mangroves. The boat is owned by Tom Davidson, 71, of Key Largo, a businessman and board member of several local organizations including the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, and the Sanctuary Friends of the Keys. The younger Davidson remains hospitalized; his condition was not immediately available. This type of accident is a very good reason why boat operators should consider installing a kill-switch on their vessels, Dube said.Hes overboard, then struck by flats vessel NORTH KEY LARGO By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comMayor Craig Cates envisions the new facility staying open during the day and providing access to social services, a place to keep belongings and meals.

On May 8, 1942, under cover of darkness, the British submarine HMS Olympus (N35) was attempting to leave the British naval base in the Grand Harbor of Malta, a small island nation blockaded by the Germans and Italians. But the Olympus didnt get far before striking a mine and sinking. For nearly 70 years, nobody knew exactly where the 283-foot subs final resting spot was in the Mediterranean Sea. Only nine of the 98 men aboard survived, swimming about seven miles in cold water and without lights to guide them due to the wartime blackout. Ayear ago, the marine archaeology survey team from the Aurora Trust discovered the sub using side scan sonar. But at the time, they werent sure exactly what the image showed. The team, which operates from Malta, returned a few months later with deep-sea robotic vehicles to videotape the wreck twice as deep as recreational divers can go. Sure enough, there was a submarine, sitting on the bottom, with the propeller intact and the hatch open, said Ian Koblick, who co-founded the trust with fellow ocean explorer Craig Mullen in 2003. We were pretty sure it was the Olympus because of the configuration of the [eight bow] torpedo tubes, the location and the fact that it was armed. The video shows cannons onboard, antennas for the radio, machine guns and a blowout at the bottom of the sub, where the mine struck, Koblick said. The video also showed the distinctive feature of an Odin class sub: a 4-inch deck gun. It was found slightly elevated, looking ready for action. Still, it took a few more months of further research before Maltas Superintendent of Cultural Heritage was satisfied the submarine was indeed the Olympus. In 2008, a team of technical divers from the United Kingdom and Malta claimed they had discovered the Olympus after identifying features that appeared consistent with the submarines layout. But their dive was brief with low visibility. The technical divers said in a release three years ago they would return to positively identify the wreck, but they never did. Monday, Malta authorities gave the Aurora Trust permission to announce the discovery. It took time because they are very protective of their cultural resources, Koblick said. Trust members are planning to meet with British Embassy officials in Washington to brief them about the discovery. The submarine likely is the resting place for at least a few of the military men who didnt survive.Its quite a sad story, Koblick said. These folks were on their way home via Gibraltar. Some had survived two other submarine sinkings.During the height of the Italian and German blockade of Malta, the British Navy battled to keep the island, which is south of Italy, supplied with fuel, food and war supplies. Submarines played a key role. The Olympus was launched in 1927 and served the Royal Australian Navy in China before being deployed to the Mediterranean to support allied efforts. The trusts operation has discovered 24 ancient shipwreck sites, many not seen for 2,000 years or more. It also has uncovered other World War II shipwrecks, more than a dozen World War II airplanes and unexploded military mines.Malta native Timmy Gambin, the trusts archaeologist, said three months ago that the team was mapping the underwater landscape of war.The Olympus is the bestpreserved World War II relic the trust has found. It was like somebody took your toy submarine and put it on the bottom, Koblick said. There is hardly any growth. The trust hopes to make a documentary about the discovery.The Olympus went down in MediterraneanBy CAMMY CLARKcclark@MiamiHerald.comHISTORYThis is the Olympus,on which 89 men died when it struck a mine and sunk.

EDITORIALKeys must stay in District 18LETTERS TO THE EDITORNo mobile food vendorsIn response to the letter to the editor from Steve Ferrise about mobile food vendors, he is correct; Marathon is a progressive community. The citys website says it will work hard to help all attain their goals. That is exactly what the city, Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce and Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate did for us. We are moving to Marathon from Illinois in February and received redcarpet treatment from every professional in Marathon. Because we love the community, we have chosen to operate our brick-and-mortar business and start our new lives in Marathon. What I believe the city must consider is what is the cost to the brickandmortar establishments or how will mobile food vendors affect the existing businesses. Such vendors do not have the expenses required or incurred in operating a permanent business. It costs a great deal of money to run a business and I cannot foresee the local restaurants welcoming a mobile food vendor parked a short distance away charging much less than what is customary. They dont belong in the Marathon business districts. I am a retiring 29-year code enforcement officer and I ask: Do you want code enforcement officers to check the time limits, locations, permits and licenses of mobile food vendors on a routine basis when their time can be better spent dealing with matters of life and safety? Do the county Health Department or state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services have the manpower to check on locations, times, etc., of such vendors? Will they check on the sanitary conditions of these transient units at each stop to make sure they have sanitized correctly, check pest control, and check temperatures of hot and cold food? I know as a permanent establishment, we will be and fellow restaurant owners are inspected routinely. How can small businesses thrive with an already-grueling economy, overhead, licenses, permits, taxes, rent, utilities, salaries, etc., when a mobile food vendor does not suffer the same costs? Will the number and use of mobile food vendors be limited? Can they move from location to location for two hours at a time? They should be heavily regulated, as heavily regulated as brick-and-mortar businesses. Theresa Matusek Highland Park, Ill.Booker beyond reproachMonroe County School District administrator Sunny Booker, reprimanded for how she handled a graduation party and being investigated for studentsonline credit hours, was the vice principal at Marathon High School when I attended there 11 years ago. She has nothing but a students best interest in mind. I have seen her bend over backwards for her students and she would give them a shirt off her back or a home to live in if needed. She is a tough principal and educator. I know firsthand that she doesnt let people slide by and that she pushes each student to reach his or her maximum potential. It is a shame to have a quality educator in our system treated like that; we all know they are hard to come by. If the students at Academic Connections for Excellence are doing well and earning the credits needed to graduate, it is because Sunny Booker is standing on their doorstep knocking each morning making sure they are where they need to be. Kristen Grimes Big Pine KeyMonroe County has little in common, geographically or economically, with Riveras congressional slotThe first of many hurdles to redraw legislative districts throughout the state began Monday in Tallahassee. On straight party-line voting, three House committees passed proposed maps that have drawn fire from Democrats and even from some Republicans. Keys voters need to pay close attention to this oncea-decade process because there could be ramifications in who represents us in the state Legislature as well as in Congress.Already, concerns have been raised about the possibility of losing U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen with a redrawn District 25 proposed for the southern tip of the state.Ros-Lehtinens District 18 starts in Hialeah and skirts the coast along Miami-Dade County and includes all of Monroe County. At least three versions approved by the House would move the Keys into a district with Collier County represented by freshman Rep. David Rivera. Acomparison of the two districts as they now stand shows some big differences not reassuring about how the Florida House is approaching this task. Rivera represents District 25, which stretches from west Miami-Dade across the Everglades and picks up parts of Collier and Lee counties. Its rural for much of the western two-thirds and is decidedly younger than Ros-Lehtinens District 18, which skews to older, better educated and higher income than the District 25 demographics.Sixty-two percent of Riveras district is age 25 and older compared to nearly 73 percent in Ros-Lehtinens district.While there are some shared interests in fisheries and Everglades conservation between Collier and Monroe, the distances that separate the Southernmost City from Naples make that a tough district to see stitched together.And theres concern about losing Ros-Lehtinens influence in Washington, where she chairs key committees and has built up years of seniority in the GOP. Rivera, by contrast, has had a rocky start in his first term as a Miami GOPback-bencher. He faces multiple investigations into his role with a Miami company that managed a pro-slots political campaign on behalf of the Flagler Dog Track while he served in the Florida House. The dog track paid Millennium Marketing $510,000. Riveras mother and godmother are listed as owners of the company.The Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement have joined forces on the investigation. Rivera has denied wrongdoing.All that makes for an unsettled picture facing Keys voters and future representation in Washington. We only hope the Florida Senates approach in drawing legislative and congressional maps will prevail. At least with their proposal, Ros-Lehtinens 18th continues to include the Keys and the coastal areas of Miami-Dade. That would be a far better outcome for Keys residents.Heads up, Monroe County residents. We are in for a bumpy ride with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in 2012. In the coming months, you will hear about threats of losing our eligibility for flood insurance under FEMAs National Flood Insurance Program. I want to provide some background and assure you that your County Commission is taking appropriate steps to protect your flood insurance and your bottom line. This dispute with FEMAhas nothing to do with downstairs enclosures and everything to do with protecting endangered species and the habitat that supports them here. Monroe County has been a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program since the 1970s, enabling residents to purchase federally subsidized flood insurance at rates far more affordable than insurance available in the private market. There are about 33,500 NFIPpolicies in effect in Monroe County; about half are for properties in unincorporated Monroe. In 1990, environmentalists working to protect these species sued the federal government claiming that FEMAs issuance of flood insurance encourages new development in habitat on which these species depend for survival. In 2005, a federal judge agreed and ordered FEMAto stop issuing flood insurance for new development in certain areas (more than 50,000 parcels) of the county, which makes obtaining a federally guaranteed mortgage almost impossible. This is commonly known as the FEMAinjunction. In response to that 2005 court order, FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued a biological opinion to help settle the lawsuit with the environmentalists. Under that opinion, FEMAexpects the county to assume the federal governments role in enforcing the Endangered Species Act for more than 30,000 parcels by forcing the county to adopt an ordinance drafted by FEMA. FEMAs proposed ordinance would require county staff to make permitting decisions that should really be made by Fish and Wildlife; include federally imposed permit conditions in countyissued permits; and then enforce the permitting conditions. If mistakes are made or violations arent remedied, all flood policy holders are at risk, not just the violators. Moreover, once certain amounts of habitat have been developed, FEMAwants the county to prohibit further development there. Under the Constitution, a property owner is entitled to compensation when the government prohibits all development. In short, the federal government has decided to limit the amount of development in certain portions of the county and wants county residents to pay for the consequences of that decision, which is conservatively estimated to be $65 million. Remember, these are federally listed species that deserve protection by taxpayers across the nation, not just us in Monroe County. In settling its lawsuit, FEMA promised the judge that it would get the county and its five municipalities to agree to this arrangement by Jan. 12, 2012, or it would start the process to take away flood insurance from policy holders in Monroe County. Incredibly, FEMAdid not deliver the last of the technical documents it wants the county to use in evaluating development requests until Dec. 23, a mere 20 days prior to FEMAs Jan. 12 deadline. From the beginning, FEMAwas told the county would need these documents before the commission could consider adopting ordinances. Doing otherwise would abdicate our duties as legislators. Despite its late delivery, FEMAadvised last week that the Jan. 12 deadline will not be extended. FEMAwill soon send notices to residents in unincorporated Monroe that the county faces probation effective May 10. Policies purchased or renewed after that date will cost an extra $50. After six to 12 months of probation, there may also be threats of suspension from the NFIP, which could affect your mortgage and ability to sell your home. This problem affects all of us. If the county is forced to buy the affected properties, everyones property taxes will undoubtedly go up and county services such as social services, animal control and libraries, to name just a few, will have to be cut, if not eliminated. The County Commission will not be bullied by FEMAinto accepting a bad $65 million deal, especially since we were not even allowed to participate in the negotiations. The commission has authorized the county attorney to file suit to enjoin FEMAfrom placing the county on probation while we challenge this ill-conceived and unfair settlement agreement. We will also be considering an alternative ordinance that protects the endangered species and, more importantly, the species most endangered by the federal governments settlement agreement, Monroe County taxpayers. We are working closely with our federal legislators, Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen and Sen. Bill Nelson in particular, to stop this abuse of power. Rest assured that your County Commission will take every step possible to protect your flood insurance as well as your bottom line.

Bill Daniels MarathonGood people aboundThere are still good, honest Samaritans right here in the Florida Keys. It was a couple of days before Christmas and I was busy running errands and had just emptied my cart with gifts into my car in the Kmart parking lot. I received a phone call while unloading the cart and had already taken my car keys out and proceeded to my next location, Walgreens, which is just moments away. I arrived at Walgreens and reached over to take my purse off the seat next to me and realized I had left it in the cart. I quickly returned to the Kmart lot only to find an empty cart where I had previously parked. My heart sank. I ran to the service desk and lo and behold, my purse had just been turned in untouched. One of the sales girls, whom I know, told me that the good man was in the store. She pointed in his direction and gave me a description of him. I found him and asked if he was the kind person who had turned in my purse. When he responded yes, I ran and hugged him. I pulled out my wallet to reward him. He raised his hand up and said, Oh, no, Merry Christmas, just pay it forward. My biggest regret is that I didnt ask him his name. He told me he lives on Big Pine Key and works at a hospital. There are so many horror stories today of greed, violence and anger. I wanted to tell this story of someone probably just like those of you reading this who are good, honest Samaritans. You, like him, who know the true meaning and spirit of the holidays. I was very lucky to be a recipient of his good deed. If he is reading this, I want to say thank you again, whoever you are. Arlene Keeney Marathon The former ABC Nursery School on 65th Street oceanside in Marathon is being renovated and is on the real estate market.Vote GOP this time aroundAre you afraid? I am. Im afraid of a government captured by progressives, those who devalue free enterprise; government lacking the discipline to commit to a budget, something most of us do every day; growing and unsustainable debt obligated to future generations; a Federal Reserve whose policies of credit easing and massive money printing lead to devaluation of the dollar; broken and ignored entitlement programs; and threats to American sovereignty by a citizen of the world philosophy. Also, disregard for our founding documents and the rule of law; use of executive orders to skirt Congress; disdain for 2nd Amendment rights; high taxes; intrusive rules and regulations down to mandated product purchases; elimination of God from the public square with the state becoming a theocracy; a non-policy foreign policy; ever expanding bureaucracy that makes its own laws; massive trade deficits; and energy policies that inhibit job growth and cater to every environmentalists whim. The progressives have rewritten the Marxist slogan: From each according to his ability to steal from others, to each according to his wants. If you are able to vote in the Florida Republican presidential primary on Jan. 31, do so. You may just nominate our next president. The grand experiment of change has failed. Quell the progressives in 2012; vote GOP. Jim Pettorini Key Colony BeachLETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The Keys Fitness Center and Marathon Liquor & Deli owner held a soft opening Monday for around 40 guests at his new Plaza Grill. The fine-dining eatery is adjacent to his existing businesses near mile marker 50 oceanside, next to the Marathon Community Theatre. We got the place full with 30 or 40 people and well see how the kitchen works out. I just want to see how it goes and in a week or two when everything is running smooth, Ill go from there, Lucignano said. Lucignano owned a bar and restaurant years ago where the theater is located prior to selling that property. Hes modest about his latest endeavor. Im doing my own little thing and hopefully it works, he said. Its going to be good; well have a good time. Lucignano spared no expense with the Plaza Grill. The kitchen is state of the art and he oversaw every detail of the interior design, right down to granite bathroom countertops. The tables and chairs are cherry wood from Canada, and the booths are separated by etched glass. Heading up an experienced kitchen staff will be chef Bill Hunter, who Lucignano said spent 12 years at Louies Backyard, an upscale Key West restaurant. The appetizer menu features salad and seafood starters ranging from $9 to $15. The main menu features meat and seafood entrees ranging from $26 grilled yellowfin tuna or veal chop to $47 for a 22ounce porterhouse steak. The Plaza Grill also features an extensive wine list and full bar. The menu is very reasonable and the wines are very reasonable, he said. Lucignano said he opted for a fine-dining establishment because Marathon already has numerous tikistyle and bar-food restaurants. I wanted the food to be what I think is good food. We went back and forth, he said. Lucignano said he plans to hold a grand opening within the next two weeks, but the Plaza Grill is officially open for business. It will open at 4 p.m. daily and serve dinner from 5:30 until 9 p.m. For more information, call 743-7874.Lucignano unveils upscale eateryBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Business Keynoter photos by RYAN McCARTHYRalph Lucignano is back in the restaurant business with his new Plaza Grill.

The co-op, which provides electricity from the Seven Mile Bridge north to the Miami-Dade County line, buys its electricity from FPL. Atypical 1,000 kilowatthour bill for residential customer is about $2 less per month, the utility said in December, when regulators approved the change. But that lower costs is offset by other increases approved by regulators in 2011. Because of expected reductions in fuel charges and adjustments to other components of the bill, the 1,000-kilowatt-hour customer will be paying $1.92 a month less. The bill will drop from $96.54 in December to $94.62 in January, FPLspokeswoman Jackie Anderson said. BUSINESS BRIEFS MILLER

From the opening tap at the Bobby Menendez Gym, the Conchs seemed to take the presence of gazelle-like Alonzo Trey Mourning a 6-foot-7 sophomore whos father was a star for the Miami Heat as a challenge. Mourning struggled to get an open shot; wherever he turned, there was amuscular Conch front-liner either Anthony Rice or JeQuan Lopez or Thomas Butler to confront him. Key West was already ahead, 14-2, before Mourning finally scored the first two of his nine points on a 16-foot jumper. He was talking about how he was going to work us over but he got nothing, Rice said after the Conchs celebrated their seventh consecutive victory. What Mourning (Trey! Trey! Trey! his coach, Claude Grubair, kept yelling) got was nine points, and as the game progressed, his shooting became more errant. Most of the shooting in this game, however, was far from errant. Each team made nine shots from beyond the arc five by Ransoms Julian Marx (who had a game-high 22 points) and three by the ConchsTony Guieb. The 6-5 Lopez, who has been focusing on outside shooting, closed the first quarter with two 3-pointers, including a bank shot at the buzzer that extended the lead to 17-5. Another buzzer-beater, this time a tip-in by Michael Vereen, closed the second quarter and made the halftime margin, 29-15. Firing up 3s, Ransom opened the second half with a 9-2 run, but then Guieb (who finished with 13 points) swished three long shots in a row to make it 44-29. Two free throws by Lopez (who had 14 points) and two technical free throws by Ryan Wagner upped the lead to 48-31 as the third quarter ended. The technical was called because a Ransom assistant coach raged at what he deemed was unfairness by the referees. Retorted a Key West fan: Just like in Miami. The final period was highlighted by a spinning layup by Guieb that was just beyond Mournings long reach, and a 3-pointer by the left-handed Gerald Hernandez that made it 6138 with three minutes left. Coach Anton Lopez then pulled his starters, and the Raiders closed the game with a 17-2 run to make the final score respectable. Ransom, which dropped to 7-8, played without injured 6-4 point guard Sam Singer, who sat on the bench in sweats. Had Singer played he had been averaging 31 points a game would the outcome have been different? The way we played tonight, I still think we would have come away with a victory, Anton Lopez said.The 7-0 squad stops Ransom, stops Mourning By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALLPhoto by BERT BUDDERansom EvergladesAlonzo Mourning III (left) tries to rebound a missed shot by the ConchsThomas Butler during Key Wests victory Saturday night.Dolphins boys, girls fall to Palmer TrinityMarathons second goal was one of the teams best this year, coach Landry said. The Dolphins moved the ball up the field with a series of touch passes before Regan Durkin put a through ball to Taylor Konrath for the goal. Palmer tied the game up later in the first half and the score remained 2-2 at halftime. The Falcons took advantage of Marathons fatigue in the second half and scored on five counterattack breakaway goals. We had some opportunities, but our defense just got tired. Every time wed get the ball in the middle third [of the field], wed make a bad play. Were working on it and getting better at it, the coach said. The loss dropped the Dolphins to 11-7. The girls were scheduled to host Coral Shores High School Tuesday, but results were not available at press time.Boys also fallAn onslaught of secondhalf goals put a close game out of reach Friday for the Marathon High School boys soccer team. The Dolphins trailed District 16 No. 1 seed Palmer Trinity just 1-0 at halftime, but the Falcons netted six second-half goals in a 7-0 win. Coach Chris Bull said the Falconssecond goal, a 40-yard blast from the right side to the upper far post, dampened the Dolphins spirit. We had been playing them tough and even the whole game and when that happened, there was a letdown. Palmer took advantage of that and scored two minutes later, he said.

Gulliver (9-0-2 in late December) and Ransom Everglades are expected to the top two seeds when the 16-2ATournament opens Jan. 24 at Coral Shores. We need to play our very best defensive game and hope to catch some breaks, Hurricane coach Jorge Bosque said Tuesday. The shorthanded Hurricanes (7-4-1) played to a scoreless tie Friday at Florida Christian. Several players missed the road game played over holiday break, Bosque said. We went up there with 13 players, leaving only two backups on the sideline, Bosque said. We talked about who would be in town to play before we scheduled the game but it didnt work out quite like we wanted. He praised the Cane defense, with goalies Alejandro Bolivar and Robert Lietaert each playing a shutout half. Results from a scheduled Tuesday game at St. Brendan were pending at press time.

With it came the sailfish. The sails are cruising the waters in anywhere from 150 to 250 feet, depending on the exact location of the Gulf Stream. Live baits of all kinds work fine pilchards, ballyhoo, goggle eyes. Mixed in is a fair number of dolphin to keep you busy while youre waiting for the sailfish. Its the time of year to give your smoker a workout, and there are plenty of kingfish in all locations to fill the racks. Theyre weighing in anywhere from 10 pounds to true smokers at 40-plus pounds. The wrecks are holding loads of mutton snapper along with amberjack both fun-fighting and goodeating fish. Serve up the mutton on your dinner plate and put the AJ on the smoker. Pinfish, pilchards and the usual assortment of live baits do the trick. The yellowtail bite is pretty good in the 40to 60foot range on the reef. Theyre averaging 16 to 18 inches. Adecent number of good-size muttons are showing in the slicks, as well. There is ample familyfriendly action on the patch reefs and channel humps for all the snapper mangrove, lane, yellowtail and mutton.

It happened again Saturday when the Conchs lost on the road to Jensen Beach, 4-0, in a non-district game. The defeat in the noon contest, which came on the heels of a 1-0 victory Friday night at Martin County, dropped the Conchs to 7-8-1 with two games left on the regularseason schedule. It was too quick a turnaround, were not ready for that much work, said Scott Paul, whos now wearing three hats coach, history teacher and bag handler at the Key West airport. It was the fifth shutout defeat for Key West, which has managed only four goals in its eight losses. The Conchs defeated Martin County thanks to the hard work of forward Devin Mitchell and a header goal by Kendall Galvan off an Adriana Garcia corner kick in the games 16th minute. Key West, which had lost the first game of the three-game trip, 1-0 to Palmer Trinity on Thursday night, had little chance against Jensen Beach, which scored all of its four goals in the first half. Mitchell worked so hard against Palmer Trinity and Martin County that she was beaten up by the time of the Jensen game, Paul said. The Conchs will play their final home game at 4 p.m. Friday against Ransom Everglades at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium before concluding the regular season at undefeated Gulliver Prep at 2 Saturday afternoon. Key West will then play Pompano Beach on Tuesday in the first round of the District 16-3Atournament at American Heritage.

The Conchs had 99.5 points, well behind winner South Dade, which had 271. It was a tough, tough tournament, said Key West coach Chaz Jimenez, probably tougher than the state meet will be. Thats because the Conchs, a 1Ateam, had to go up against top 2Aand 3Ateams. Max Llama (145 pounds), St. Pierre Anilus (182) and Anthony Guieb (152) made it to the finals. Llama lost, 2-1, to Chase Krutzky of Lake Gibson. Anilus lost, 10-5, to North Ports Carlos Martinez, a silver medalist at last years state meet. And Guieb was pinned by Matthew Dillard of Durant High. The three Conchs, Jimenez said, didnt wrestle their best and it cost them. Max almost put the kid on his back in the third round, but the whistle blew. St. Pierre should have dominated but he came out flat and made mistakes against a kid with an unorthodox style who is ranked first in 3Aand Andre was way better than [Dillard] but made mistakes that cost him. Other Conch wrestlers who did well but failed to make the finals were Glenn Evans, who was 4-2 at 132 pounds, the meets toughest bracket; D.J. Laguna, 3-2 at 120 pounds; Andrew Calderwood, 3-2 at 138, and Angelo Guieb, 2-2 at 106. The Conchs will head to the Tallahassee area this weekend for a two-day tournament at Suwannee High in Live Oak.Llama,Guieb and Anilus make finalsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST WRESTLINGInjuries and a bit of postholiday fatigue caught up with the Marathon High School girls soccer team Friday against Palmer Trinity School. The Dolphins played the perennial District 16 Falcons to a 2-2 tie at the break but surrendered five second-half goals en route to a 7-2 loss. Missingfrom Marathons lineup were Savannah Rodamer, Marina Kay Wiatt and Abi Connell. We put one of our better first halves together, but got out of sorts and had some bad rotations on defense and they made us pay. Speed has been our nemesis all year, coach Lynn Landry said. Junior Katie Landry started the scoring off, netting a ball off her left foot from 30 yards out to put the Dolphins up 1-0. Palmer tied the game up shortly after.Dolphins fallFrom Dolphins,1B limit turnovers, stay disciplined, make open shots and free throws. The Canes (4-9) fell in a Jan. 5 game at Miami Country Day, 62-30. Like the soccer Canes, Sandersons hoop squad was far from full strength with only six available players because of the holiday. We were missing two starters and our sixth man, Sanderson said. We had a hard time getting the ball up the floor without a point guard.

When should you repair and when should you replace an appliance? With the economic downturn keeping people in their homes longer and money ever tighter, it is a choice being considered by more homeowners these days. After surveying thousands of its readers on the matter, Consumer Reports maintains that if your appliance is 8 years old, usually it makes sense to buy a new one. If you have a favorite high-end older appliance, you may want to repair it. Consider replacing a newer model if it has been repairprone. But skip any repair that costs more than half the price of a new product, the magazine staff recommends. The magazine found that its readers sometimes began the repair process but stopped midstream in frustration. That, too, can be a costly process, because a repair shop will still charge you even if you change your mind and decide to buy a new whatever. AARPhas millions of older members on fixed incomes. It recommends considering the 50 percent rule, which financial experts have long advocated as a gauge when determining the cost-effectiveness of replacement versus repair. Those experts say that if a repair was estimated to cost 50 percent or less than the amount you paid for the item, it was usually better to have it repaired. AARP, however, suggests that the 50 percent rule should be based on replacement value, not original purchase price, since many consumer items have dropped in price over the years. Always check each and every product you own for a warranty. Conventional wisdom maintains that a product usually starts causing problems the day after the warranty expires, but just in case something is covered, you should know it in advance. Consumer Reports also recommends that unless youve bought a pricey highend model, it might not pay to professionally repair outof-warranty products that are more than 3 years old. Regular maintenance extends the life of just about anything. When dust and dirt clog air-conditioning or other filters, the air flow is constricted and the unit must work harder. An air-conditioning unit that does not work efficiently will cost you more in energy, and its parts are more likely to wear out quickly. One of the factors governing the decision to repair or replace is life expectancy of the product. Most refrigerators last 15 to 19 years. Unless the fridge has been a lemon since the day it came into the house, the newer it is, the more consideration should be given to repairing it. Freezers, which last 20 years or so, should be given the same consideration. An important consideration is energy-efficiency, however. Energy Star-rated refrigerators produced after 2001 use 40 percent less energy than those manufactured before that date, and that might have a bearing on your decision. Saving $100 a year might not be enough to justify spending the kind of money that you would spend for a refrigerator that would meet your familys needs. In addition, sometimes a new appliance will change the way the rest of the room looks, or alters the layout so much that youll need to change everything, increasing the expense beyond what you can afford. It all comes down to what you can afford and what meets your needs, meaning both tests need to be satisfied, not one or the other. The experts seem to agree that it is probably wiser to replace electronics than to repair them. Technology changes rapidly, and the DVD player you bought when they first came out may cost many times more than ones selling today, and parts and even repair people may no longer be readily be available. When you do replace these electronic gizmos, just dont throw them away. Recycle them.
