Southwest acquired AirTran last May.The 673,106 passengers going through the airport in 2011 far exceed the previous high of 618,174 in 2005. Counts had been steadily declining since; the number was 563,947 in 2006, 538,066 in 2007 and 453,006 in 2008.Horton said the addition of AirTran flights in December 2009 played a large role in the increased passenger counts. Thats 124,000 passengers we didnt have prior to December 2009, but they are an economic generator in that their reduced prices forces the other airlines to compete and the result is the other airlines end up carrying more passengers, he said. Horton admitted there was concern that Key West International would be among the six airports Southwest said it will stop serving effective Aug. 12. If the market wasnt as strong here, they would have dropped it. I think they recognized that and thats why they picked us as one of the 22, he said. Southwest said in a statement that out of the 69 cities AirTran flew from at the time of the acquisition, 53 are expected to convert to full Southwest Airline services. AirTran will cease operations at airports in Allentown, Pa., Lexington, Ky., Harrisburg, Pa., Sarasota, Huntsville, Ala. and White Plains, N.Y.

Jake Brady, a 23-year Monroe County Sheriffs Office veteran now working as a sergeant in the Marathon office, filed papers to run Friday. Hes a Republican. The people who work for the Sheriffs Office are my extended family, Brady, 47, said Tuesday. When family members are in trouble and call for help, youve got to do what you can for them. Three other candidates two current Sheriffs Office law officers and a former deputy are seeking to follow Sheriff Bob Peryam, who plans to retire when his four-year term ends in January 2013. Brady said he is disheartened to see Sheriff Peryam go but contends that changes are needed in the upper ranks of the agency.The current administration represents just more of the same good olboy network that rewards their friends with a fat paycheck and a nice office space, Brady says in a campaign announcement. The rank-and-file have been looking for a candidate that they can support and have the hope for real change. I am that candidate.Agency veteran Brady:Turnover high,morale lowELECTION 2012 BRADYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comState: College needs to tighten controlsFlorida Keys Community College has to tighten its purchase-card controls and its policy for who has access to what in the colleges computer systems, the state Auditor Generals Office says.In its audit of operations for fiscal year 2010-11, released Monday, the state points out 16 areas that need improvement, up from 14 in 2010.College President Larry Tyree told the Keynoter that while all findings are taken seriously, those of the most concern are the repeat findings such as the purchase card and information technology issues. I have had a pet peeve for many years, Tyree said, and it has to do with repeat findings. Theyre indefensible. Thats our greatest concern. We have 100 excuses but no real good reasons. The college needed to enhance controls over its purchasing card program to ensure that purchases are adequately documented, the auditors wrote. Tyrees response: The [purchasing] cards for the college were recovered from employees in February 2011. Since that time, Pcards have either been issued for specific purposes or have been used exclusively by certain individuals authorized by the college.According to the audit, in fiscal year 2010-11, 25 college staffers made purchases totaling $313,000 using purchase cards. The state points out that there are some problems related to fuel purchased for boats owned by or on loan to the college, and accounting of travel expenses.Purchase cards, computer access are big issuesKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEHammond files for bug boardFour-term incumbent Steve Smith has another challenger for the District 3 Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board this year.Key West resident Stephen Hammond, a Republican, filed to run on Friday, joining Democrats Smith and Key West Planning Commissioner Timothy Root.From a distance for the last six or eight years, Ive watched from the outside as the board handled business for the citizens. What I saw disturbed me and I want to be part of the change, Hammond said. Hammond, 54, stressed fiscal responsibility and said hed been unhappy with the former gang of three on the board, referring to Smith, Commissioner Joan Lord-Papy and former Commissioner Charles Langstaff.Former Director Ed Fussells $184,600 annual salary and what many critics said was a bloated budget were the big issues during the 2010 election cycle. Fussell retired in January 2011 after Langstaff his staunch supporter withdrew from the District 5 race eventually won by Upper Keys attorney Jack Bridges.

Apush to give a popular Upper Keys dive spot called Snapper Ledge more protection could gain support from a federal fishery agency.Snapper Ledge, a shallow reef off Tavernier, could be declared a protected marine zone by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council.Many Upper Keys divers, spearheaded by underwater photographer Stephen Frink, describe Snapper Ledge as a vibrant reef with diverse fish life, yet it is not designated as Sanctuary Preservation Area under the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. As of this week, 3,036 people had signed an online petition to change the Snapper Ledge status to a notake zone. Efforts have been going on since 2008.Amending Keys sanctuary rules to add a new Sanctuary Preservation Area involves reports and hearings that could take until 2015 at the earliest, sanctuary officials say.Weve had requests from constituents to get it done more quickly, so in August we asked the South Atlantic Council to look into it, said David Makepeace, an Upper Keys marine educator who serves on the Sanctuary Advisory Council. Much to my surprise, they said they would look into it, Makepeace said. Frankly, I did not expect this much action this soon. At a 4 p.m. Monday meeting at the Hilton Key Largo Resort at mile marker 97, the South Atlantic Council will take general comments on several issues, including whether the agency should begin working on a marineprotected zone for Snapper Ledge. Afinal decision would be months away.Personally, I support it, Makepeace said. I dont want to create a precedent for using spot-zoning based on individual needs, but the Snapper Ledge situation and concerns are somewhat unique.Also Monday, the council also will review a proposal to establish 56 areas in Keys waters around protected elkhorn and staghorn corals where lobster-trap fishing would be banned. The zones as proposed came out of talks between the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, the Keys Sanctuary and local marine-conservation groups. Were on board for almost of the zones, except for three, FKCFAExecutive Director Bill Kelly said. Were asking them to them to shrink those or break them into two or more zones to cover a smaller area. Those three include a large area off Newfound Harbor in the Lower Keys, one off Davis Reef near Long Key, and one inside Carysfort Reef off Key Largo.Fishermen are all in favor of protecting the coral but these three zones include a lot of ground where there is no [branching coral], he said. The South Atlantic Council also is considering creating new rules that could limit the use of powerhead fishing using a spear that uses a shotgun shell to take large fish, or create a special permit for powerhead fishing.For information on the proposed rules, go to www.safmc.net .No action will be taken at Mondays meeting, but officials will explain various proposals and take comments.

Brady said the Sheriffs Office is troubled by low morale and high turnover.He joined the Sheriffs Office in 1989 after serving six years in the U.S. Marine Corps, and has been a primary field-training officer and supervisor for new deputies in the Middle Keys. Brady has been a member of the SWATTeam and Dive Team, and a volunteer fireman for 13 years in Marathon. Born in Toledo, Ohio, Brady spent much of his youth in the Middle Keys and attended Marathon High School before graduating in Ohio. He worked toward his bachelors degree at the University of Toledo and expects to soon complete his degree work. Two of his four adult children work in law enforcement, including a six-year deputy with the Sheriffs Office. Also running:Rick Ramsay, 46, undersheriff to Peryam. Ramsay, a Sheriffs Office colonel since 2004, joined the agency in 1987. The Republican who grew up in Marathon has worked as a road-patrol deputy, detective and regional captain.Edwin Bill Grove III, 42, of Tavernier, an investigator with the State Attorneys Office. Grove, a Republican, worked for the local Sheriffs Office from 2005 until 2010.Thomas Peteck, 52, a 24-year veteran of the Sheriffs Office. Now living on Little Torch Key, the Democrat is a civil-affairs deputy who previously worked road patrol. Race crowdedFrom Brady,1A June to homestead-exemption fraud and owed $60,000 to Levy County and Monroe County for back taxes. In the past 13 months, theres been two new [board] members and theyve changed the course of the board and are moving it in the right direction. Its now being run like its a business, Hammond said, referring to Bridges and Phil Goodman, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott last year to replace Dick Rudell, who died in office. AKey Wester for 11 years, Hammond is originally from Atlanta and holds bachelors and masters business degrees from Samford University. He said hes worked in management positions for BellSouth (now part of AT&T) and Blue Cross Blue Shield in Alabama and Mississippi. Hammond said he later opened a real estate business in Mississippi and has worked for Key West Real Estate for six years. I feel like I can bring something to the board with the financial and business background I have, he said. Chairman Bill Shaw, a Republican, filed to seek a fifth four-year term in District 4, while Republican Pat Bowman has filed to run for the District 1 seat held by fiveterm incumbent Joan Lord-Papy, a Democrat.Hammond filesFrom Hammond,1A Shafferfiles to run for Marathon City CouncilLongtime Middle Keys resident Larry Shaffer filed Thursday for a third run at the Marathon City Council.The onetime member of the citys advisory Planning Commission sought election in 2004 and 2010, losing both.Seats up in November on the five-member council are held by Mayor Pete Worthington, Ginger Snead and Dick Ramsay. He says he has the support of many residents and theyre the reason Im running, although he didnt lay out any campaign issues.Shaffer, a U.S. Navy veteran, finished last in the District 5 race in 2004 behind Chris Bull (1,440 votes) and John Repetto (657 votes). Shaffer tallied 235 votes, or 10.08 percent of the vote.By 2010, the city had switched to at-large voting, meaning the highest vote getters win election to the available seats. Shaffer placed fourth of five candidates in that election, garnering 898 votes, or 12.8 percent of the vote.Snead (1,873 votes), Ramsay (1,824 votes) and Worthington (1,807 votes) easily won that year. They received 26.69 percent, 25.99 percent and 25.75 percent of the vote, respectively. Shaffer had a very public run-in with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on Feb. 15, 2011, which he explained in detail at a subsequent Marathon City Council meeting during public comments and wrote about on his Marathon Florida Keys Journal website.Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin told the Keynoter deputies were investigating reports Shaffer had armed himself and made threats against people. He was not arrested, but was admitted to the Guidance Care Center under the Baker Act.The Baker Act allows for involuntary detainment by police, judges or mental-health professionals if someone displays signs of mental illness or is deemed to be a harm to him or herself or others.Im working with lawyers to see about the long process of suing [the Sheriffs Office,] Shaffer said. Im not going to paint the Sheriffs Office as all bad, thats not true. I have a lot of depositions and the SO is probably going to lose.Marathon will have at least one new council member come November because Worthington must be off the board at least one year after serving three consecutive twoyear terms. Ramsay and Snead both told the Keynoter theyre undecided on running.Its 3rd time hes running for the boardBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comELECTION 2012 SHAFFERBridges takes helm of boardHis fellow commissioners tapped Jack Bridges Monday to be chairman of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board for 2012. The first-term commissioner won the Upper Keys District 5 seat in 2010 after longtime Commissioner Charles Langstaff dropped out of the race. I was honored they allowed me to serve as chairman this year. I want to continue getting Mosquito Control turned in the right direction, so the taxpayers dont think were spending too much money, he said. The vote was held at the boards monthly meeting on Stock Island. Bridges said he plans to give the ceremonial position mostly, the chairman just leads meetings even less power, provided the board supports a resolution he plans to introduce at the February meeting. It would remove the chairmans right to vote last on any action item. Bridges said issues oftentimes are decided prior to the last, or second to last, vote. He wants votes to be held randomly, or alphabetically, but dropping the first person to the end of the list each time. The people have the right to have all of their representativesvotes count, he said. Commissioner Joan LordPapy initially nominated Commissioner Phil Goodman for chairman, but Goodman declined the position. Commissioner Steve Smith then nominated Bridges and it was accepted unanimously. Lord-Papy nominated outgoing Chairman Bill Shaw for vice chairman, which was passed unanimously. Goodman was unanimously selected secretarytreasurer.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLSnapper Ledge closer to protectedMARINE FISHERIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Subscriptions 743-5551

from two to three flights per day from Key West to Tampa and Orlando. He said hes hopeful Southwest would increase that number, and possibly include other destinations. We hope they will expand their schedule, which is what they generally do. They dont do two or three turns; six is the normal minimum. I would like to see a Key West to Fort Lauderdale [flight] because thats a big hub for them, he said. AirTran was just the third highest producer at Key West International in 2011, serving 124,226 passengers. Delta handled 206,890, followed closely by American Eagle at 204,952. U.S. Airlines-Republic Air was fourth at 63,371, Silver Airways fifth at 51,975 and Cape Air sixth at 21,692.More than 673,000 use the airportFrom Airport,1AWith college-owned boats, auditors found no receipts documenting which boats actually consumed $1,354 of gas. Auditors also found no documentation for $2,312 in gas, equipment and supplies purchased for a boat on loan from the state Department of Environmental Protection. The ITfindings relate to which employees can access which college systems. Auditors identified one administrator who could access finance, human resources and financial aid systems unnecessary for the employees job duties and contrary to an appropriate separation of duties.In a mandatory response to the states findings, Tyree concurred with the analysis and outlined corrective actions the school will take. Just think back a year ago, Tyree said, summarizing comments made to college staff on Monday, and the distance this institution has traveled. All the leadership of our business office has changed and Im really encouraged that a year from now, those repeat findings will have evaporated.Tyree: Well fix negative thingsFrom Audit,1A Wednesday,January 25,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Tell those you LOVE just how you feel with our V V A L E N T I N E L O V E L I N E S To be published Saturday,Feb.11 Order deadline is Tuesday,Feb.7 Cost is $17.50 per square To reserve your space: Call us at 743-5551 Or email to lpr est on@k e ynot er .c om J.C.

I applaud the dedication and hard work of our students and staff, and I would like to recognize our students, parents, teachers and administrators for their commitment to improve academic performance as we look forward to building on our successful results. In a prepared statement, state Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson lauded Floridas success, calling the state a national leader not only in school rankings but also in systematically determining those rankings. Ranking districts and schools based on data-driven results demonstrates Floridas focus on ensuring students receive a high quality education and provides another helpful tool for parents, educators and taxpayers, he said.Specific to the Keys, Robinson said, Monroe County deserves congratulations for this accomplishment. Ranking in the top 10 takes commitment, hard work and collaboration not only for those within the educational setting. It takes the support of the entire community.Expanding on the district rankings, the state plans to compile and publish comprehensive list of individual school rankings. Gov. Rick Scott, whose proposed budget includes $1 billion more for education than in the current year, said: We all wish to ensure students have the opportunity to get a good education that will prepare them for a good job. Ranking school districts by performance allows taxpayers to see their investment in education at work.

After a last-minute meeting between city staff and the would-be developer of an assisted-living facility at the Truman Water in Key West, a pending lease agreement was tabled just three hours before the Key West City Commission was poised to make a decision on it on Tuesday.The reason, according to Family Pride Corp. General Manager Rick Dover: He failed to file paperwork incorporating his company with Floridas Division of Corporations. I kind of had the cart in front of the horse, so that was my bad, Dover said. They cant vote to approve a lease for a legal entity thats not in existence. Well get all the documentation done. I dont know how I forgot about it. Family Pride, based in Tennessee, is owned by a family trust of which Dover is not a beneficiary, he said, calling himself an employee of the company. Aside from the paperwork issue, Dover and city staff on Tuesday had not come to terms on several portions of the proposed lease. Im not an ultimatum kind of guy, he said, but admitted that if the lease disputes cant be resolved, he may have to walk away from the project. The differences are almost to the point of being semantic, Dover said, pointing to his preference for a 99year lease, whereas the city has suggested a 49-year lease with five 10-year renewal options. Dover said it boils down to his ability to secure financing for the $10.2 million project which, he added, may not be a sure thing even if a lease is finalized.My problem is, in 2012, to walk into a construction financing source ... they dont like leases to begin with. They want security for their speculative construction/real estate projects. Theyre not going to accept anything other than a 99-year lease.Based on a lease summary prepared by Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan, the first 10 years of the proposed ground lease would cost $1 per year; in years 11 through 49, that would jump to $50,400 per year; beyond that, the city wants an appraisal conducted at that time to determine the price with no cap on possible increases.Late last year, the project took a dramatic turn when the planned facility was moved from adjacent to the Southard Street entrance of the Truman Annex to a parcel contiguous with the Bahama Village neighborhood along Fort Street.Family Prides plan calls for 60 assisted-living units, paid through a straight rent model, comprising 10 lowincome units for $1,100 per month, eight moderate-income units for $1,700 per month and 42 market-rate units going for $3,800 each month.

Detectives canvassed parts of Key West in an effort to identify the body but werent successful until family in Chicago contacted the Key West Police Department after receiving a package from the Keys containing Hansons wallet, identification and other personal items. From there, relatives were put in touch with the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office and identified the body. Hanson was last seen at 8 a.m. on Jan. 9 as he was leaving his home for work. An autopsy showed signs of drowning, although toxicology reports are pending, according to law enforcement; reports indicate no signs of foul play on the body when it was discovered.His family in Chicago helped caseKEY WESTKeynoter Staff HANSONAccused killer back in the KeysPeter Erik Hedvall, accused of first-degree murder in the Oct. 28 killing of a Key West man, was extradited to Monroe County on Sunday to face trial. Hedvall, 26, was arrested Dec. 21 the day before his birthday in Waukesha, Wis., for allegedly killing Jonathon Alvarado, 28, by slamming his head with a rock. Alvarado was found dead under a truck on Grinnell Street. Police says Hedvall, from Brighton, Mass., is linked to the crime through DNA. He was among the people questioned the night of the slaying. Thats when detectives took a sample of his clothing and found blood on it that was later matched to Alvarado.

Its all but certain that come the early part of 2013, the city of Key West will take possession of whats now Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street for use as city offices. The Monroe County School Board on Tuesday was set to vote to hand off the school to the city when Archers student population about 300 moves to a new building on the Horace OBryant Middle School campus. By all accounts, the full board has signed off on the deal. Under terms of the deal, no cash would change hands. In exchange for the building, the city would give the district use of land on Stock Island next to Gerald Adams Elementary for bus parking; retain access to two buildings on the Archer campus for potential future use as offices; and maintain an office for the superintendent and a board member in the citys street-fronting portion of the school.Its not clear how much it would cost or to what extent the city would renovate the school, but I dont hear anything negative, said Chairman John Dick, who has worked with Mayor Craig Cates to achieve the swap.Dick and others on the board say that even if the district were to sell Glynn Archer, any money realized couldnt be used to shore up shortfalls in the strained operational budget; rather, it would go into a capital account, earmarked for construction and equipment. People misunderstand and think we [would be able to] use that money to solve our problems, Dick said. We cant. Board member Ron Martin reiterated that: Why give it away when you can sell it? [Because] the money, if we sold it, would go in capital so we couldnt use it for general operating expenses, anyway. Robin Smith-Martin, in whose District 1 Glynn Archer lies, lauded the public partnership. Board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths, referring to a November 2010 referendum in which city residents were asked whether to acquire Glynn Archer for city hall, said: percent of the people wanted this negotiation. I think public assets should remain with the public if possible. Board member Duncan Mathewson could not be reached for comment but in previous discussion has supported the giveaway. Cates, since being elected in 2009, has pushed to abandon plans to rebuild city hall at 525 Angela St. its falling apart and moldy, and city staff now works out of rented space in favor of rehabbing Glynn Archer. Cates said if the measure passes the School Board, the Key West City Commission will take it up at a Feb. 7 meeting. If both pass, the Angela Street site would be rebuilt as a firehouse and parking garage. For the School Boards decision and detailed coverage, visit www.keysnet.com.

SAT. 9:30 5:30 SUNDAYS NOON 5:30 Some split on elected FKAAboardThe Monroe County Commission met in regular session at the Harvey Government Center in Key West Jan. 19 and took the following actions:Heard limited public input on Commissioner George Neugents desire to make the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority an elected board. The commission agreed to allow for input at its January, February and March meetings so residents up and down the Keys could weigh in on Neugents idea for a nonbinding referendum on the November ballot. He said hes supporting the referendum after he received numerous calls in the wake of the utilitys Nov. 22 meeting. Thats when nine-year Executive Director Jim Reynolds abruptly resigned and was replaced moments later by the board with utility attorney Kirk Zuelch. The vote was 4-1 and neither action appeared on the agenda in advance. Changing the board to elected from governorappointed would take an act of the state Legislature. Aqueduct Authority retirees Kathryn Ovide and Margaret Gil spoke against the referendum, with Ovide saying the upheaval at the utility is internal. Historically, appointed boards have served responsibly and acted in the best interest of our community, she said. Big Pine resident Joyce Newman favored Neugents plan and questioned the transparency of the Nov. 22 meeting. With no public notice, under an add-on agenda item and in just a few minutes, the board accepted the surprise resignation of its executive director, hired a new one and appointed a new attorney. It defies logic all these important steps could happen so quickly, she said. County Attorney Suzanne Hutton said shes received a copy via e-mail of a petition in support of the referendum, with 33 signatures. Former Aqueduct board member Rose Dell (2003-2011) compiled it. Dell put a similar petition together for the Nov. 22 Aqueduct meeting, but Chairman Robert Dean refused to allow it into the record because it was anonymous and many signatures were illegible. The Aqueduct Authority supplies potable water to the Keys and is partners with Monroe County on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of central sewer projects. The state Legislature created the FKAAin 1938. The only time board members were elected was from 1976 to 1980, when the Legislature changed its enabling legislation, then changed it back.Unanimously approved a one-year extension to the contract with state and federal lobbying firm Cardenas Partners LLC. The agreement increases the firms pay from $5,000 per month to $6,000 per month, not to exceed $72,000 for the year. County Administrator Roman Gastesi said $6,000 per month is a common figure. These folks have been very responsive, he said. Its what the market bears. Neugent requested a quantifiable document in the future that details the return on investment in Cardenas. Over the years weve paid out a lot of money, he said.Heard a report from Monroe County Fire Rescue Chief Jim Callahan that the Insurance Services Office (ISO) has increased the protection rating for Layton and Tavernier from a Class 5/9 to a Class 4. The rating indicates a significant improvement in the level of firefighting service in those areas and means potential insurance savings for residents and business owners. The ISO is an independent company that serves insurance companies, communities, fire departments, insurance regulators and others by providing information about fire risk.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTYElementary school handoff nearly completeNext up:Vote by commissioners to accept itBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe students at Glynn Archer Elementary School,shown here,are slated to move to the Horace OBryant Middle School campus in 2013.

EDITORIALCourts need stable fundingLETTERS TO THE EDITORHistory lovers neededThanks to our members and volunteers, Friends of Old Seven has made tremendous progress in our mission to save, restore and enhance the old Seven Mile Bridge since we incorporated in July as a nonprofit. We have done so with very limited human and financial resources.This year marks the centennial of the Key West Extension of the Florida East Coast Railway, of which the old Seven Mile Bridge, once called the eighth wonder of the world, is probably the most significant feature.We have a truly ambitious agenda for the next 12 months, and we need help.As part of the railroad centennial celebrations, Friends of Old Seven will organize and/or participate in numerous events throughout the year. We intend to continue and expand our ongoing dialogue with top-level representatives of state, county and municipal governments toward achieving our objectives of establishing a joint public/private partnership to facilitate our mission.We will substantially increase our efforts to obtain funds from public and private sources to enable us to carry out broad-based community outreach, education and communication programs. For all of the above, we need an expanded network of members, volunteers and financial contributors committed to what we are doing and willing to assist us in achieving our organizations objectives. We have our 2012 kickoff general membership meeting from 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 31 at the Marathon Community Theatre 5101 Overseas Highway. Since meeting space is limited, your RSVPis appreciated at info@old7.org. Bernard Spinrad MarathonEco-friendly adviceI commend the Marathon City Council and the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce for promoting Marathon as an ecotourism destination. With this designation comes a challenge to create a more eco-friendly habitat for wildlife. We have a responsibility to enhance what is naturally here. Following are steps people can take with minimum expense or effort: Plant native plants, learn how to avoid using pesticides and herbicides, follow environmental regulations while fishing and boating, contribute to or volunteer at our area parks and nature centers, minimize use of cars, and attend local environmental education programs. Being an ecotourism destination can be achieved only by collaborative decision making based on proven research. It will take the commitment of citizens, politicians and businesses to make it happen. Neil Schoenfeld MarathonTrying to finance them with fees from foreclosures shows how short-sighted Legislature can beIn Florida, one of the three co-equal branches of government is a lot less equal when it comes to funding. The court system is at the mercy of an unpredictable source of revenue. Ultimately, Floridians pay the price civil lawsuits linger unresolved; marriage dissolutions take longer; and guilty or innocent, forget about the right to a speedy trial. In other words, justice is delayed. According to Scott Hawkins, president of The Florida Bar, the courthouse in Palm Beach County came within a hairs breadth of shutting down its civil side because there was not enough money to continue operation. Both the state court system and the clerks of the court had to take a loan from the executive branch to fill out their 2010-11 budgets. Thats absurd. Since 2009, most of the money has come from court filing fees, a source of funding with all the stability of a hurtling roller coaster. About 75 percent of those funds come from foreclosure filings. This was the Legislatures short-sighted and cynical solution when the courts were deluged with filings from thousands of residents losing their homes. But the number of foreclosure filings is dropping, and with them court revenue. Apanel of judges and court clerks, the Revenue Stabilization Workgroup, recommends that the courts and court-related functions court reporters and interpreters, in addition to judges be funded consistently from general revenue and the establishment of a reserve fund for courts and clerks. Hawkins says that Gov. Rick Scott agrees that courts warrant stable funding. Lawmakers should, too. Miami HeraldDont forget: Vote for tax shiftIf youre one of the 50,951 registered voters in Monroe County and you havent yet done so, dont forget to vote for the flexible-funding referendum on the Jan. 31 ballot. If approved, it would allow the School Board to shift the proceeds from a half-mill tax to the operating budget from the capital fund. The shift would be good for four years. Its crucial because the School District needs the money. The first year, nearly $10 million would be moved. If not approved, programs such as athletics could very well see the axe. And such programs, not just classroom instruction, are essential to student growth. As of Tuesday, just 2,139 people had voted. All registered voters can vote on the referendum, whether Democrat or Republican, even though the Jan. 31 ballot contains the Republican presidential primary. Early voting at several locations continues through Saturday. To find out the polling site closest to you, call 292-3416. We endorse the flexible funding. Vote yes. Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThe old Seven Mile Bridge is closed to fishing and autos due to its disrepair.Contain your dogsI dont get holidays or weekends off, or sick days. But you know what? Thats fine by me because I am an animal lover and I love my job. Euthanasia is the most devastating part of this job. Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys loves all animals. They may be ugly to some, hairless, overweight, mangy, missing limbs, nippy, feral or may be declared a nuisance. They may be thought of as unadoptable by some. We do not euthanize based on any of these issues but welcome each animal into our family. We are a no-kill animal shelter in Marathon and are proud to be so. Most nuisance dogs are not euthanized. In fact, we have never euthanized a dog declared a nuisance. Acouple of years ago, a pit bull named Luna was picked up several times running the streets, being a nuisance. The final time the owners said forget it, keep her. This family promptly replaced her with another dog. We still have our Luna girl. We love her and she cannot be replaced. The new dog followed in her footsteps and is running the neighborhood streets. We were hired by Monroe County to provide animal control to our community. We do not believe that a person should have to carry mace on his or her morning walk to fend off a neighborhood dog that may be loose. When you bring an animal into your home, you are responsible for its safety, health and containment. If each animal you take in continues to have the issue of escaping, it is obviously the fault of you, the owner, and a solution must be found through a court of law. Katie Bentley Director, SHARK MarathonYes to flexible fundingI encourage the passage of the flexible-funding referendum for the Monroe County School District on the ballot Jan. 31. As a former schools superintendent and ardent supporter of responsible school funding, this referendum is a common-sense approach to using money that is already collected by the Keys board for education. It would allow the board of education to use money that is not needed for capital improvements for the day-to-day operations of the district. In a time of money shortage for nearly all people, this referendum will delay the need to look for additional money from the community by using money currently collected. I am quite sure it is not the final answer to funding schools, but I am also quite sure that not increasing taxes at this time is a good thing. Passing the referendum, allowing the use of capital improvement money for operations, means no increase in the money people are paying. This is a good thing. Please support the referendum. It doesnt cost any additional money to the homeowner, it supports the staff working with our kids, and it keeps our kids in an environment that places an importance on learning. Educating the next generation is our greatest responsibility; take it seriously. Vote yes on flexible funding. Vote for our teachers and students. Bruce Hulme Wadsworth, OhioMore cat carrier tipsI read your brief article, How to win the battle of the cat carrier, in the Jan. 14 edition and couldnt help but laugh. As a cat owner, I would like to share my experience. As cats are very intelligent creatures with incredible will, for most, especially indoor/outdoor cats, the tips in the story will work only once before the cat will be on to whats really going on. There is a very simple solution to this problem, however, and it works every time: As any cat owner knows, cats are motivated by one thing food. I keep my cat carrier in my kitchen and it is the only place I feed my cat. Start with a cage you can easily get the cat into. Most cats know a word for food, be it eat, hungry, food, etc., so pair that with the cage, carrier, house or whatever you want to call it, and feed your cat only when he is completely inside. After no more than two weeks of putting kitty in, make it his choice. Get the food, go to the cage and give the command. If kitty doesnt go, walk back to the food bag, put the food back in it and walk away. Try again in a few minutes and repeat the process until he goes in on his own. Always close the door behind him but dont latch it; being able to come and go easily is key to the cats comfort in this process. Once kitty knows his routine, reduce the size of the cage to his front-loading carrier. Vet visits are now no problem if you are consistent with this. It is also beneficial if, like me, you have pesky dogs in the house that try to eat cat food because it gives kitty a safe, hassle-free zone in which to eat. Remember, be firm and consistent. As with any training, it is the only way to be effective. Our pets are smarter than we give them credit for (sedatives are never the answer). We must teach them how to live with us so everyone is comfortable and happy. Trust me, I do this with my cat and it works great. Katrina Spelker MarathonFunding will helpAs we embark upon the new year, the Crane Point board of directors, management and staff would like to send out our heartfelt message of thanks to our community for their support of Marathons nonprofit organizations. It is their tax dollars that enable our City Council to award grants to the local nonprofits that apply for the funds. It is with our greatest respect and deepest appreciation that we publicly acknowledge Marathons City Council for its considerate and unbiased distribution of the available funds. We greatly appreciate the funding recently awarded to Crane Point for use in the educational program Plantastic (Participatory Learning along Nature Trails and Sowing Trees in Containers), a program offered to students visiting Crane Point while on school field trips. All of us at Crane Point are extremely grateful to our community and to the City Council for their support. Thank you one and all. Best wishes to everyone for a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year.

Gov. Rick Scott captained a brief conference call Friday to tout Floridas 9.9 percent seasonally adjusted unemployment as evidence that his strategy for putting the state back to work is successful. The figures represented Floridas best unemployment rate since April 2009, when 9.7 percent of the workforce was idled. Monroe County, which has 73,000 residents, reported the strongest employment with 6.2 percent of its workforce sidelined. Monroe has a proportion of government employees. Flagler County, a short drive north of the Space Center, suffers from the states highest unemployment with 13.9 percent unemployment with Hendry County in the southwestern part of the state not far behind at 13.5 percent unemployment. Scott campaigned on creating some 700,000 new jobs over a seven-year period assuming hed win reelection in 2014. He said his strategy has led to the creation of 140,000 new jobs since he took office in January 2011. These changes include streamlining government, removing barriers to job creation and eliminating burdensome regulations, Scott said. Floridas unemployment rate is still significantly above the 8.5 percent national unemployment figure and represents 913,000 eligible workers who are still hunting for jobs across the state. Florida has lagged behind the national figures for nearly four years. Rod Smith, chairman of the Democrat Party in Florida, was quick to chastise Scott for killing more jobs than hes created. Scott has favored an extreme agenda that has rejected jobs and slowed growth, Smith said in a statement from the partys Tallahassee headquarters that credited President Obamas leadership with the improved job numbers in Florida. Smith said the governors policies have led to thousands of teachers, firefighters, police and corrections officers being laid off and that he rejected federal dollars for high-speed rail that could have led to up to 26,000 new jobs.6.2 percent still looking for workAssociated PressUNEMPLOYMENTHow do your savings rate? How much in savings and investments should you have by age 35 or 45 or, for that matter, at 65 when youre likely to be near retirement? If you dont know, you have plenty of company. So many figures are bounced about that its often difficult to know whats the right amount. Many workers end up saving what they can and hope for the best. Thats why some financial advisers now use a simple yardstick to help clients quickly see how they measure up. It suggests the amount of savings and investments you should have in relation to income at different ages. For example, at 35 your assets should at least equal your annual income. The formula is by no means gospel, but its a useful tool to check if youre largely on target, need to save more or should revise your retirement plans. The idea comes from Charlie Farrell, a Denver investment adviser and author of the book Your Money Ratios: 8 Simple Tools for Financial Security. Farrell says financial ratios are used to simplify complicated data for investment professionals analyzing companies. He figured workers could use a similar shortcut for personal finance. The math is easy. Add up all your bank accounts, 401(k)s, individual retirement accounts and other investments. Dont include the equity in your house. Thats because, Boca Raton financial planner Mari Adam says, most people still need some place to live and dont take steps to downsize and sell the house. Younger workers in their mid-20s arent likely to have a lot of assets built up. Whats key for this age group is to get started with saving and investing. Contribute at least enough in a 401(k) to get the employermatch if you cant afford to do more now, Adam says. But dont forget to increase the contributions 1 to 2 percentage points annually to catch up. For all other age groups, Adam uses the ratios listed below. Other advisers, she notes, use even more stringent savings targets. Still, if youre not a good saver now, these benchmarks will appear steep:Assets at age 35 should equal one to two times yearly gross income.Assets at 45 should total three to four times income. Assets at 55 should be six to eight times income. And at 65, assets should equal 10 to 12 times income. These are aspiration levels, Adam says. And if you cant meet them, she says, it doesnt mean you cant retire. You might be able to get along with having fewer assets if there are other financial factors in your favor. For example, Adam says, you could get by on less if your mortgage is paid off or if you will receive a fat pension or ample Social Security check in retirement. Or, she adds, if you are truly frugal. But if youre short on savings, you still have time to make changes to improve your finances. You can squirrel away more, work longer or take a part-time job in retirement. Or delay Social Security benefits until as late as age 70, so youll get a bigger check. And you can always free up home equity by selling a pricey house and moving to a more modest place. But you do need to think seriously about putting away as much as possible. Its sort of like the doctor advising you to exercise 30 minutes a day, says Stuart Ritter says, a financial planner with T. Rowe Price, but you work out only six minutes. If six minutes at the gym sounds ludicrous, you should have the same reaction to saving only 3 percent for retirement, he says. Relying on winning the Florida lottery is about the worst way to plan for your later years.Age benchmarks are essential to future plansMcClatchy-TribunePERSONAL FINANCE Tropical Springs Realty 103100 Overseas Hwy #51, Key Largo, FL 33037 5 5 CountyReal EstateTeamThe Donna Steele 305.395.0856 Sherry Fell 305.453.1770 Full time in the Keys!The 5 County Real Estate Team has a brand new Key Largo Ofce.

Frigid weather was largely to blame for making 2011 the second-deadliest year on record for Floridas endangered manatees. Of the 453 dead manatees recovered in state waters, state wildlife biologists determined that just over a quarter of them were killed by cold stress. It was the third year in a row that bad weather helped drive up the annual death total. In 2010, a record high 766 manatees were found dead, with at least 282 killed by cold water. In 2009, 429 carcasses were found, with 56 deaths blamed on cold weather. Thats a troubling jump from a five-year average of 30 cold-related deaths, said Gil McRae, director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are concerned about the number of manatee deaths the past three years, including those resulting from exposure to cold weather, McRae said. Over the next few years, we will use data from monitoring programs to better understand any long-term implications for the population. The number killed by boats, 88, was slightly up from last 2010 but close to recent averages and lower than the all-time high of 97 set in 2009. Manatee deaths have risen sharply over the past decade, but so has the population. Last year, state biologists conducting an annual aerial survey tallied more than 5,000 of them, a record high ironically caused by a cold front that had corralled much of the population around power plant outfalls and springs that offer warm water refuges for the temperature-sensitive sea cows. Pat Rose, executive director of the Save the Manatee Club, credited protection measures mandated by state and federal wildlife agencies for keeping the death toll from being even worse during a near-record cold snap early in the year. When Florida Power & Light decided to upgrade an aging power plant in Brevard County, for instance, the utility was required to install some $5 million in heating equipment to help maintain a warmwater refuge in the Indian River Lagoon near Titusville that draws hundreds of manatees every year. The temporary system, paid for by utility customers, will be in place until the new plant comes online in three years. Lee County in Southwest Florida accounted for the highest number of boat deaths, with 14. Brevard and Pinellas counties tied for second with seven each. Miami-Dade and Broward both recorded two boatstrike deaths. Monroe County had five.

We know we have a play a perfect game on defense, Cane head coach Jorge Bosque said, and not waste any scoring opportunities. The Canes (10-5-1) were locked in a 1-1 tie with St. Brendan at the end of regulation in Mondays 16-2A opening round, being played at Coral ShoresGeorge M. Barley Jr. Stadium. The game finally was settled when senior veteran Tony Papp launched a textbook shot on a free kick at the Sabre net. Cane forward Jack Hatfield, at the back post, went skyward to connect with a header that scored the deciding goal. Jack kept going up like something from Angels in the Outfield, offered teammate Jim Rhyne. We played most of the game and about three-quarters of overtime in front of [St. Brendans] net, Bosque said. We had about seven really good scoring opportunities but found every way possible to miss. Afirst-half goal by Sean Anderson off an assist from A.J.

The Conchs went 7-0 and, on Saturday in Pool A, upset previously undefeated Palmetto Ridge, 3630. It was the first time weve won that tournament, said Key West coach Chaz Jimenez, who had doubted that the team could finish ahead of Palmetto Ridge. I didnt expect to lose, Palmetto Ridge coach Lazaro Rua, whose team is now 28-1, told the Naples Daily News. Jimenez said it has probably been eight years since the Conchs won a tournament with such a large field. Key West, which improved to 17-3, also defeated Immokalee, 72-9; Golden Gate, 60-9; Lely, 52-15; Gold Coast, 43-25; Estero, 51-21; and American Heritage, 44-30. Five Conchs went 7-0 Max Llama (145 pounds), Glenn Evans (132), Andre Guieb (152), D.J. Laguna (120) and St. Pierre Anilus (182). Anilus, who is 14-0 over the last two tournaments and is ranked third in the state in Class 1A, had two notable victories 5-0 over second-ranked William Norelia of Golden Gate, and 5-3 over Palmetto Ridges Esteban Rua, who is ranked sixth in 2A. Jimenez pointed out that it was the performance of the lesser-known Conchs that earned points that were vital for the victory. The guys that had losses never gave up, he said. Angelo Guieb (106) was 6-1; Andrew Calderwood (138) was 52; John Posey (195) and Cody Tullen (132) were 41, and Ivan Demier (126) was 3-3. Everybody was really proud and excited, Jimenez said. When our seniors were freshmen, we won the C pool at that tournament. It was pretty cool for them to see how far theyve come in four years.

But the Dolphins were absent senior standout Dwayne Ellis Monday due to illness and couldnt carry momentum into a matchup with Miami Country Day. Marathon kept that game close early, but the Spartans pulled away in the second half and won, 69-45. I was really proud of the guys. We hadnt won in over a month and it felt good to get it off our back, coach Kevin Freeman said of the Palmer game. In that contest, Marathon trailed 19-8 at the end of the first quarter and by as much as 30-12 during the second. But a 16-7 Dolphins run to close out the second trimmed Palmers halftime lead to 37-28. Ellis and senior Trevelle Beckford carried Marathon in the second quarter, scoring 10 points apiece. The Dolphins shook off third-quarter woes plaguing the team all year and outscored Palmer 22-11 to take a two-point lead into the fourth. Beckford had seven points in the quarter and Nelson Rojas had six. Jessie Deluca came in and hit a big three to give us our first lead at 50-48. That momentum propelled us into the fourth quarter. We ran a lot of time off the last four minutes and made good passes and decisions, Freeman said. Beckford finished with 26 points with seven rebounds, while Ellis had 16 points, nine rebounds and three blocks. Rojas had 14 points and two rebounds. On Monday, Freeman said the team struggled offensively and missed the inside presence of Ellis against Country Day. The Dolphins kept the game close early, trailing just 23-18 at the half. Beckford had nine points at the half. The Spartans outscored Marathon by seven in the third quarter and the lead ballooned in the fourth. Beckford finished with 15 points and three rebounds, while Peter Culver had nine points and Shemar Fantroy had five steals. Marathon (3-12) finished its district season at 2-5, tied with Palmer for the No. 3 seed. Freeman said Palmer won a coin toss, meaning MarathonBut Country Day proves too much three days laterBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASKETBALLYellowtail bite among the strongest out thereWere certainly enjoying a nice, warm winter. The cold fronts have been few and pretty mild compared to the past couple of years. Like us, the fish benefit from the comfortable conditions, and even the yellowtail snapper are hanging around to enjoy them. On the reef, the yellowtail bite remains very good for January, with some really nice fish in the 20-inch range showing up. There are large mangrove and plenty of goodsize mutton snapper mixed in. Shrimp and ballyhoo work best. Attesting to the relatively warm reef waters, we caught quite a few hogfish last week in 40 to 50 feet of water. As always, shrimp presented on the bottom does the trick. Sailfish are active in the 130to 180-foot depths. Theyll often pop up while youre snapper fishing, so be prepared with a live bait ready to toss in their direction. The patch reefs and channel humps offer up their usual assortment of fun-catching and good-eating snapper, hogfish, porgy, mackerel and more. In a true sign of the season, king mackerel are abundant in all venues reef, patch reefs, channel humps and the bay. Where you find the kings, youll also have loads of cero and Spanish mackerel. The bay waters have warmed to around 70 degrees or more, and the cobia and mangrove snapper have responded positively to the temperature change. The action is anywhere from just a couple miles out to 20-plus miles. The king mackerel in the bay are huge upwards of 50 and 60 pounds. They take all variety of live bait, such as blue runners, pilchards and pinfish. There are also lots of gag grouper, but be sure to release them as the grouper season is closed until May 1.The weeks bestDocked at Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon, Capt. Jeff Shelar of Catch-Em-All Charters reports a few dolphin and sailfish offshore last week, but relatively show action. Inshore, his anglers caught lots of nice snapper, hogfish and mackerel. Amberjack are plentiful on the reef, and Michelle Santangelo from Atlanta caught a monster at 72 pounds. Mike and Brian from Maryland selected Marathon Capt. Dallas Tisdale for a windy day trip to Florida Bay in search of Spanish mackerel. They did not venture too far out due to the conditions, but the bite was steady and the fish respectable at three to four pounds. Brian broke out his fly rod and put an additional half dozen Spanish mackerel in the fish box. The guys had their mackerel turned into smoked fish dip at Porkys Bayside BBQ in Marathon.

The young Hurricanes growing pains were especially painful they made one out of 27 field-goal attempts and committed 30 turnovers. They did not score in the second half. But the most startling statistic was 0 the number of time-outs called by Key West coach Tez Waters and Coral Shores coach Pat Meyers. The score would have been even more lopsided had the Conchs shot better they were 19 of 53 from the field for 36 percent. It took until 4:17 was left in the fourth quarter before Key West had a lead big enough (35 points) to necessitate a running clock. The game, which began a half-hour late because Coral Shores was delayed by traffic after a crash on U.S. 1, took only an hour and 10 minutes to play. It was senior night, and all six seniors scored for the Conchs. Shelisa Page had eight points, Alexsa Rahming and Shaniya Watson eachhad six, Aaliyah Lucky had four, Dejannae Lang had three, and Britnae Mingo had two.

But that was the final result, as the Falcons scored just over a minute in and never looked back in a shutout win on the Dolphinshome field. Palmer is definitely a good team, but there was a lot of things we could have done to not get beat 6-0. We didnt come out and play well in the first half, Landry said. Landry said the Dolphins were able to create space all over the field but failed to come away with quality scoring chances. We just have to take advantage of it. Were young and Palmer is a very experienced team, he said. If we could have just put one or two goals on the board in the first half, it would have changed the complexion of the game. The Falcons made it 2-0 at the 33:46 mark and tacked on a third goal at 25:47. Palmer failed to score on a breakaway chance at 21:30, missing a shot wide right, and senior goalie Julietta Pezzella made a huge save on a pointblank header off a corner kick at 16:09. But Palmer put the game out of reach early, scoring a fourth goal at the 10:45 mark and leading 4-0 at the half. Marathon limited scoring chances for most of the second half, but the Falcons still managed to tack on two late goals. The Dolphins (13-10) still earned a birth in the state regional playoffs for making the District 16 final.

LivingDive museum opens libraryThe History of Diving Museum in Islamorada dedicates its Bauer Diving History Research Library on Feb. 29 at the museum, mile marker 83 bayside. The ribbon-cutting celebration is from 6 to 8 p.m. RSVPis required, call 6649737 or send an e-mail to info@divingmuseum.org. Named after the museums founders, Joe and Sally Bauer, the new facility serves as the repository of the Bauer Library Collection, which consists of about 2,500 volumes. It is one of the most comprehensive collections of rare books relative to the story of undersea exploration and was amassed by the Bauers over four decades. The collection is focused on titles published prior to the mid-1900s and includes some publications dating back to the 1700s. Included are books, prints, woodcuts, catalogues, and photographs illustrating diving history, treasure hunting, submarine warfare, natural history and other aspects of underwater exploration. The project was made possible with a grant from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. The grant allowed the museum to purchase custom archival-quality bookshelves, document storage drawers, a waterless firesuppression system, light fixtures and an art hanging system. There is also wireless Internet and audio-visual equipment to make it a functional space for business meetings and events, available for rent. The staff, board, and volunteers have all worked extremely hard on this project and its completion signifies a very important step forward for our young museum, said Erin Wolfe, manager of collections and administration. Tickets for the opening event are $25 ($15 for museum members). Drink tickets and hors doeuvres are included. The deadline to RSVPis Feb. 22. The museum is open to the general public daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The research library and meeting room will be accessible during those hours.Rare collection of books, more open to publicISLAMORADA The new meeting space is available for rent.Dogs experience anxiety, tooMany people have experienced anxiety at some point in their lives and can recognize it in others. What most dont realize is that their four-legged friends get anxious, too. Most dog owners can spot the well-known signs of fear in their dogs, such as pacing or tucking the tail between the legs. There are more subtle behaviors, however, that dogs display long before the obvious signs. To help keep your dog happy and comfortable, the American Kennel Club reveals the early signs of anxiety. Among them:Panting: Acommon misperception is that dogs pant only because theyre hot.Actually, many dogs will pant when theyre stressed or anxious. This happens because your dogs adrenaline is released in response to a scary situation, and his pulse quickens and his breathing speeds up.Yawning: Dogs may yawn as a sign that they are conflicted or uncertain about the situation theyre in. For example, your dog might want to jump off the groomers table because hes anxious or afraid, but hes been trained not to do that. Yawning signifies the conflict of continuing in the uncomfortable situation.Lip tension: Dogs often pull their lips back slightly when theyre anxious. It can appear as if hes smiling or just some creases as the corners of his mouth.Displacement behaviors: Your dog may display inappropriate behavior because he or she is anxious or excited about something else. Such behaviors include your dog humping your leg when a visitor comes to the house; he is displacing his feelings about the guest arriving.Watch early signs such as lip tensionMiami HeraldOUR PETS Photo courtesy MIAMI HERALDThis dog looks a little anxious.Perhaps its anxiety.LIVING BRIEFSBenefit planned for stroke victimAbenefit for David Stammdrjohn, who had a stroke in December, is planned for noon Saturday at the Dockside Bar and Grill, 35 Sombrero Road, Marathon.
