Sears plans to close up to 120 Kmart and Sears stores.Whether any in the Keys are on the list isnt yet known.Story, 7A 2011:A look back In 2011,Keys prep athletics saw lot of successes but also some disappointments.Stories, 1B Plane in crash is complete lossAll three people aboard a sightseeing biplane that crashed Monday in waters off Marathon survived but the aircraft and its business may not.Paul Goodwin, operator of the Conch Air Corp., said the future of the decade-old aerial tour firm at Florida Keys Marathon Airport is uncertain in the wake of the accident. When something like this happens, youve got to weigh whether you want to take the risk, Goodwin said Tuesday.The open-cockpit, singleengine Waco YMF airplane piloted by Alvin Reinauer, 37, of Key Largo made an emergency crash landing in shallow water about half a mile off Tingler Island in Marathon around 2:30 p.m. Monday, according to an initial accident report filed by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers.Maurizio Vidulich, 61, of Melbourne and Nicholas Garcia, 35, of Marathon were riding in the front passengersseat. Garcia and Vidulich were taken to Fishermens Community Hospital for examination but soon released. Goodwin said the worst injuries were a couple of scratches. All three people were picked up and taken to shore by witnesses aboard a flats skiff. The rescuers names were not immediately available. There was quite a commotion out there, said Liz Montgomery, who watched the rescue from a Man-OWar Drive home. The airplane, built in 1989 by the Waco Classic Aircraft Corp. of Michigan, is a modernized replica of a classic model from the 1930s. The Waco is not a rebuild or a kit plane but a brand new FAA-certified production aircraft, the companys website says. FWC officers said the plane experienced mechanical problems and started sputtering before the crash, related Officer Bobby Dube, an agency spokesman.

The owner says hes considering whether to continue his tour business,considering the aircraft sells for $395,000.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comLooking back at 2011As is the case every year,the people of Monroe County saw it all the past 12 months.There were continued local government battles with the state and the feds,the nine-year head of the Keyswater utility suddenly quit (seemingly forced out),fiscal problems continued at the School District,Marathon got a new hospital operator and Key West dealt with its own issues.Its always instructive to look at the major stories of the past year as a new year dawns,and thats what the Keynoter is doing today,this coming Saturday and on our website,www.KeysNet.com. In todays edition,youll find stories about distinguished residents who died,what happened on the county front and where the village of Islamorada stands. On the web,youll see what happened the past 12 months at the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District. Coming are looks back at the past year in Key West, Marathon,the Mosquito Control District,the School District,Florida Keys Community College,the U.S.Navy, the environment and fishing. Yearsees passing of notablesWith each year comes the passing of well-known and beloved community members, and 2011 was no different in the Florida Keys.Dick Rudell of Marathon, a 12-year member of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board, died in February at age 72 just three months after getting elected to a fourth fouryear term. In his 33 years in the Keys, the Massachusetts native had owned the Dockside Lounge and, later, Keywood Cabinet Distributors. He was an avid pilot who loved flying his Cessna 172. On the bug board, Rudell was known for butting heads with some commissioners over spending issues, and he was the harshest critic of Ed Fussell, the 13-year director who retired shortly after the 2010 election saw a changed board without a majority bloc supporting him.Former Miami Dolphin Jim Mandich, a member of the NFLs only undefeated team and the owner of a popular Islamorada restaurant, died in April at age 62.Mandich was the principal director of Mad Dogs Restaurants Inc., the parent corporation of Ziggie and Mad Dogs at mile marker 83 bayside in Islamorada. The restaurant, formerly known as Ziggies Crab Shack, specializes in steaks, seafood and chops. He founded the Mad Dog Mandich Fishing Classic, a two-tournament fishing event in Islamorada and Miami. The Islamorada one raises money for Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. Following his retirement from football, he went on to become a Dolphins broadcaster.Frank Romano, 88, of Key West died in May. He founded the company Key West Aloe, originally the Key West Fragrance and Cosmetics Factory, but is best known for being among the forefathers of Florida Keys tourism. After moving to the Keys from New York in the 1970s, he ended up leading the Monroe County Advertising Commission and transitioning to its successor, the county Tourist Development Council. He also was a co-founder of Fantasy Fest; the first one was held in 1979. And heRudell,Romano, sax man Clemons are among themBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.com2011:A LOOK BACKNew years here, old issues remainOnerous mandates by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the idea for a casino at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, an animalcontrol scandal and the never-ending battle over electricity on No Name Key continued making countywide news in 2011. But those werent the only issues.FEMA and KeysJust when one controversial issue involving FEMA the inspection for possible illegal downstairs enclosures at homes covered by FEMAs National Flood Insurance Program apparently was resolved in October, another more-serious one arose this month: FEMAconsidering put the Keys on probation in the insurance program, and possibly even suspending the island chain from it, because of endangered species habitat.Thats big because the National Flood Insurance Program insures thousands of Keys properties whose owners cant get such insurance elsewhere. And having such insurance usually is a bank requirement to get a mortgage. First, the resolution. For years, FEMAhas mandated the county inspect homes it covers for illegallyFEMA,No Name, Hickory House still problemsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com2011:A LOOK BACKDespite objections, sidewalks going inAlthough construction of new sidewalks on Virginia Street in Key West is well under way, some residents there continue their objections to the work with comments made in public meetings now giving way to graffiti.Meanwhile, to make way for the 5-foot-wide sidewalks, which will comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, city crews have removed several trees and a number of other encroachments including fences, walls and formerly private parking spaces.

Bill Nelson on Wednesday applauded the inclusion of Everglades restoration projects into the federal budget. Specifically, lawmakers approved funding for 5.5 miles of additional bridges along the Tamiami Trail, which will elevate portions of the trans-glades route to allow more natural water flow into Everglades National Park. The federal spending bill totaled $142 million, including $96.9 million for cleanup projects in the region and another $45.6 million for the Kissimmee River restoration.This has been a pretty rough year for bipartisanship in Washington on many levels, said Kirk Fordham, CEO of the Everglades Foundation. The Everglades is really a shining star in terms of a policy area where we continue to see bipartisan support.

FKEC TAVERNIER HEADQUARTERS, BOARD ROOMPublished: 12/28/11 The Keynoter, Marathon, FL 33050 All That Glitters...872-4491Winn Dixie Shopping Center on Big Pine Key.Open 7 DaysSoft Knit Tops New XCVI Fabulous Jewelry Gifts for Everyone built apartments below the flood plain when the homeowner seeks a building permit for anything having to do with that house. But in 2011, Gov. Rick Scott signed House Bill 407, which bans inspections for anything that doesnt specifically relate to a specific permit specifically, no looking for an illegal enclosure when, for example, inspecting for electrical. The new law meant the county had to come up with a new program to satisfy FEMA, and it did: Now, property owners can request an inspection. If one is done, a record is created in an owners chain of title stating what is and isnt allowed at that house. So now, even if someone doesnt request an inspection, if theres something illegal on the property, itll be found when ownership changes hands. Now, FEMAs holding the hammer down yet again: The agency has ordered the county to determine, when people apply for permits to build, whether the parcel is in endangered species habitat. The county says its the fedsproblem, not local governments. And thats important because if the county determines someone cant build because of habitat, the landowner could sue for the market value of the land, claiming a taking. The overall potential bill could be $65 million or more, the county contends. The mandate arose out of the settlement of a 1990 lawsuit in which FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were sued by three environmental groups claiming that allowing flood insurance in endangered species habitat violates the Endangered Species Act. The problem, the county says: Monroe was never a party to the lawsuit so the mandate is illegal. Now, the county plans to sue FEMAto get the settlement overturned when it gets the notice of probation in the flood insurance program. That notice is expected to arrive in midJanuary and call for probation beginning May 10.Marathon casino?Monroe County Commissioner George Neugent raised more than a few eyebrows in June when he floated plans for casino gambling at the county-owned airport in Marathon. He hoped it could generate funding for statemandated sewer projects.The Marathon City Council was cool to the idea. And many note that the state Constitution would have to be amended to allow it. Pari-mutuel gambling is the only type that could be allowed in the Keys, and New Rochelle, N.Y., resident John Van Lindt holds the only such permit in the Keys. Its from the former Key West Kennel Club on Stock Island that closed in 1991. So far, the gambling idea has gone nowhere.Animal issuesIn September, the county got an unwanted legal result to its long-running dispute with former Middle Keys animal-control provider Linda Gottwald and her nonprofit Stand Up For Animals. The Third District Court of Appeal in Miami overturned Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlins August 2010 ruling that froze more than $250,000 of Gottwalds assets that the county claims is taxpayer money.It was the latest twist in a dispute that started in 2010 when, after Gottwald requested more county money to run the shelter, County Administrator Roman Gastesi ordered audits of all three Keys animalcontrol providers, who all work under county contract.The Stand Up audit was by far the most troubling. It showed Gottwald used taxpayer money on everything from a personal sport utility vehicle to personal entertainment.Ultimately, Stand Up was replaced by the new group Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys. It runs the Marathon animal shelter and is responsible for animal control from mile marker 16 to mile marker 70 under a $232,556 annual contract that runs until June 30, 2015.No Name powerTheres still no end in sight to the decades-long legal battle over commercial electricity on No Name Key, a Lower Keys island adjacent to Big Pine Key.Owners of the islands 43 homes have long been at odds over whether Lower Keys utility Keys Energy Services should run power lines to the off-the-grid island, whose homes are now run by either solar power or generators.The utility was nearing a deal with the No Name Key Homeowners Association in March to run the lines, but the county sued, seeking a legal ruling on whether its obligated to issue permits to run lines over conservation land or for homeowners to connect to power poles.Complicating the issue further was No Name property owner Bob ReynoldsAugust motion to dismiss the countys suit against Keys Energy and No Names homeowners and put the decision on commercial power in the hands of the state Public Service Commission.Circuit Court Judge David Audlin is scheduled to rule on Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. in Key West whether he or the PSC has jurisdiction over the matter.Hickory House Often referred to by commissioners as an albatross, the ill-advised 2006 purchase of the former Hickory House bar and restaurant property on Stock Island continues to haunt Monroe County. In September, the commission rejected the only offer it received after issuing a request for proposals to rent or buy it; it was the third time since 2009 the county put out an RFPfor it and rejected all responses.West Palm Beach-based Florida Yacht Charters & Sales had proposed a four-year lease for $2,000 per month and an option to buy after that time for $1.01 million.The county paid $3.13 million for the Hickory House in November 2006 and its lain dormant since as the county continues trying to unload it.Old Seven MileThe county-owned Pigeon Key off Marathon might consider the state Department of Transportation its own personal albatross.The historic islands nonprofit foundation faces numerous issues as it struggles to keep the island open to the public. Not the least of those worries is the state Department of Transportations threat to shut down the landmark 2.2mile old Seven Mile Bridge leading to the island.The state has already closed the bridge to auto traffic and fishing, but closing it to pedestrians, skaters and bicyclists is a real possibility if the dilapidated bridge is not refurbished. The states estimated cost: $16 million. The states commitment: Zero.New year, many same issuesFrom County,1AKey West City Commission didnt halt the work, some objectors took to expressing their sentiments on a large white wall at Virginia and Watson streets.The central tag read: The Lorax would cry, in apparent reference to a Dr. Seuss character that speaks for the trees in the 1971 environmental fable. Because the tagged wall was on city property, it became the citys responsibility to cover up the vandalism following the self-issuance of a citation from the citys Code Compliance Department earlier this month. On Dec. 21, a five-man city crew whitewashed the fence at a cost of about $550, according to a police report prepared by Officer Julio Gomez. By Christmas, the graffiti was back, Lorax and all. On a site visit Tuesday, Assistant City Manager David Fernandez inspected the wall as construction workers demolished sidewalks while pouring concrete for new ones. We gave them a clean slate, he said, adding that the demolition of the formerly whitewashed wall is awaiting a permit from the citys Historical Architectural Review Commission.Upon review of an Internet video of the painting, police were able to trace some of the graffiti to area resident Sherrie Waltz who, along with husband Gary Ek, was been very critical of the project. Waltz was given a notice to appear before Monroe County Judge Peary Fowler on Jan. 5 to face a charge of criminal mischief.Ek contends the neighborhood supported making Virginia a one-way street, thereby allowing for the sidewalks while preserving some parking spaces, but city staff wasnt responsive.Protests ongoingFrom Virginia,1A FLORIDA KEYS KEYNOTER (ISSN 8756-6427,USPS# 0201-620) is published semi-weekly by Florida Keys Keynoter,P.O.Box 500158, Marathon,Florida 33050-0158.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday,December 28,2011 additional investigation into the crash. This can take up to a year, said an FAA spokeswoman.I didnt see it so I really cant tell you what happened, Goodwin said. Reinauer did a nice job of saving it.... He did a good job bringing it down and everybody walked away. Thats what counts.The airplane painted yellow and red with Rides emblazoned underneath the lower wing was lifted from the water by a salvor boat but likely is a total loss from saltwater damage, Goodwin said.Theyre all good for one water landing, Goodwin said. It happens. The recreations of the Waco YMFs are built with wooden wings and a steel fuselage, covered by modern fabric. The airplane is 24 feet long with an upper wing span of 30 feet. A2010 article in Flying Magazine said the Waco YMF models sell for $395,000. Conch Air offered eightminute rides from $55 per person, with a 30-minute tour to Sombrero Reef and Bahia Honda costing $137.50 per person.Just one wter landingFrom Crash,1A was a big supporter of the Keys American Red Cross, winning its Florence Spottswood Humanitarian of the Year Award.Sax player extraordinaire Clarence Clemons lived on Singer Island, but over the past two decades he came to love the Keys and ended up buying a part-time home on Stirrup Key in Marathon. He died from a stroke in June at age 69. Clemons, nearly 40 years Bruce Springsteens No. 2 man in the E Street Band, loved to play Keys venues, including the Schooner Wharf in Key West; the Brass Monkey Lounge, Castaway, Dockside Lounge and the Hurricane Grille in Marathon; and Woodys, the Lorelei and Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. He also served many years as grand marshal of the Key West Christmas boat parade.Brooks White, 63, of Key West died in September. He was best known as a political strategist, guiding numerous campaigns in Monroe County over the decades. But he also was a driving force behind the Friends of the Key West AIDS Memorial, a group that worked to establish the White Street Pier memorial in 1997. It honors the memories of Keys residents who have died of AIDS and now has more than 1,000 engraved on it.Sylvia Montgomery, a longtime volunteer in the Middle Keys, died in November at age 88. APhiladelphia native, Montgomery moved to the Middle Keys in 1960. Shes noted for helping the nonprofit Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter open its first shelter in the Middle Keys in July 1984. Montgomery was also known for her prominent role with the Fishermens Community Hospital Ladies Auxiliary better known as the Pink Ladies. She spent some 25 years volunteering at the hospital.Also in November, the Super Boat World Championships saw their deadliest year ever when three racers were killed in crashes: Page Motorsports throttleman Joey Gratton, 59, of University Park, Fla.; and Big Thunder Marine owner/throttleman Bob Morgan and driver Jeffrey Tillman, both of Missouri.Keys lose several friendsFrom Passing,1A MOYERBrigidMoyer passedaway atherhomeonFriday, December16,2011 surroundedbyherfamilyaftera longtermbattlewithcancer.

Christmas not all cheery for someIt wasnt Santa and the elves a Key Largo man saw when he looked out onto his boat early Christmas Day. Two Miami men Victor Matias, 26, and Terrance McCray, 21 were arrested on felony burglary charges after the boat owner called Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies at 2:45 a.m. Sunday. Four officers responded to the call on Island Drive, off mile marker 104 on Largo Sound. They spotted the door to the boat cabin open, and ordered the suspects to come out and lie down on the deck. Investigation revealed [Matias and McCray] had two backpacks with them and were using screwdrivers to remove the electronics from the console of the boat, said Deputy Becky Herrin, information officer. Inside a car parked nearby, deputies found two women, Nadiege Andre, 25, and Jackqlin McCray, 18. In the car, detectives found two GPS systems, a flat-screen television and other electronics, Herrin said. Both women were charged with being an accessory to a felony. Detectives are investigating to see if the suspects, all still in Monroe County custody at press time Tuesday, could have been involved in other recent boat burglaries in the Upper Keys, Herrin said. In other crime reports from Christmas weekend:John Ferraro, 29, of Key Largo was charged with resisting arrest Saturday after frightening firefighters and threatening a deputy, according to the Sheriffs Office. Firefighters said when they found an illegal outdoor fire smoldering on Coral Way near mile marker 105, Ferraro came out of a nearby house and made threats against whoever reported it. The firefighters, who had moved behind their truck, said they heard three loud sounds they believed to be gunshots. Deputy Tony Conde arrived and approached the house while carrying a rifle. The defendant challenged him to put down the weapon and fight like a man, Herrin said. Conde fired his Taser three times to subdue Ferraro, according to reports. The loud sounds apparently were made when Ferraro used a pipe to strike several objects.Liveaboard boater Scott Brady, 49, was arrested on aggravated battery charges Monday after he reportedly slashed at the throat of a West Palm Beach man.

Hartman serves as budget director for the Big Pine Academy charter school. Board policy dictates that School District employees cant serve on the committee, but Gentile said she isnt an employee of the district.However, the committees charter also says members should have no direct or indirect business interests in the schools system. Because the charter school is funded through the district, You could say theres at least an indirect interest, Gentile said.Hartman came in o the mix when Mathewson declined to reappoint Big Pine Key resident Larry Murray to another two-year term on the committee.She hasnt officially said, absolutely not,but shes not diving in, Gentile said. Shes got a full-time job with what shes doing so shes weighing it real carefully.The audit committee meets monthly during the day in Marathon. Gentile estimated members devote anywhere from three to nine hours at a minimum, each month.Committee Chairman Stuart Kessler acknowledged that unlike some advisory bodies, the panel he oversees puts in considerable hours scrutinizing district practices. This has turned out to be quite an undertaking. Its just the nature of the beast that we spend a lot of time, he said.Times an issue, doubtfulshell remain on itBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMORNOE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comHAPPY NEWYEAR!

During the spring and summer of 2011, its members encouraged elected officials in Key West, Marathon and Islamorada to approve resolutions and proclamations urging local retailers to suspend the sales of candy-flavored tobacco products. Their success set an example for SWATchapters across Florida. Fellow youth activists in no fewer than 25 other counties have also succeeded in recent weeks in getting similar resolutions passed in their communities. Tobacco companies have been infusing cigarettes, cigars and smokeless tobacco with fruit and mint flavors for years. Although tobacco industry reps frequently deny theyre flavoring their products to attract a new generation of tobacco users, industry memos going back more than 40 years indicate otherwise. Its interesting to note, too, that the brightly colored packaging of these products is hard to distinguish from the packaging of popular brands of hard candies, chews and bubble gums. Whats not for a kid to like? According to the 2010 Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, 19.8 percent of high school students and 5.3 percent of middle school students across the Florida Keys reported having smoked a cigarette within the preceding 30 days of the survey. Thats 6.7 percent and .4 percent higher, respectively, than statewide rates. Clearly, we need to do more to discourage Keys youth from picking up that first cigarette, cigar or package of chew.Youth activists and elected officials in Monroe County are stepping up to the plate in asking the business community to take on this cause. I hope that businesses will do whatever they can to show their support: Reorganize stores so that tobacco products are displayed away from candy and out of reach of children, limit candy-flavored tobacco advertising on doors and counters, and ensure that all clerks are checking ID and refusing tobacco sales to anyone under age. What can each of us do to help protect our kids from an addiction as dangerous to their health as tobacco use? Chris Tittel Tobacco-Free Florida Keys Key WestFeder,ICE come throughI would like to share with the community a sincere thank you that needs to go out toward Dave Feder and Island Community Entertainment of the Upper Keys. Recently the food pantry of Burton Memorial United Methodist Church received a generous supply of dry and canned food goods. This was made possible through the Bayjama festival that was held in Founders Park on Nov. 26. As part of the admission to the Bayjama, concert goers were asked to bring canned food for entry into the park. This resulted in three truckloads of dry and canned food being delivered to Burton Memorial. What a wonderful way to provide entertainment and support to the needy. Kerry Foote TavernierSaunderstime is upHow long can nice hair and a pretty face keep state Rep. Ron Saunders of Key West at the public trough? He has 16 years as a state representative and is now considering going for more as a state senator. This means we have a professional politician. I dont think thats what our founders had in mind. Bob Horan Endicott, N.Y. Re: The Keynoter s Dec. 17 editorial about Monroe County protesting the states plan to give Marathon 100 hotelroom permit allocations as a reward for progress building its sewer system.If your perception of the letter from Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Doug Darlings is correct, and I would hope not, then your comments in reference to his letter are nearsighted, if not blind to the big picture.Unincorporated Monroe County as well as every other municipality and affected party in the region has a right, if not a responsibility, to ask for an explanation for DEOs action in granting the 100 transient units to Marathon. The Monroe County Commission did not say it was challenging or opposed to additional units. It asked, What gives? The county of Monroe is still designated an Area of Critical State Concern, a legal designation and definition which the governor promised to respect. Extrapolate and unfold the scenario. If the state exercises this type of action without defined parameters, criteria or rules, how do we know how to govern responsibly? This action will be precedent-setting, circumventing a longstanding process of public input. And remember, Marathons request was for 1,000 units. Will the Keys be what the residents want in the future? Unincorporated Monroe, with its partner the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, has instituted and participated in the installation of more sewer installations than anyone. This would include the Little Venice project and the first advanced wastewater treatment plant in Marathon; the county also received recognition of substantial progress in its work program from the state. Reward for unprecedented progress in wastewater what about Key Largo, Ocean Reef, Key Colony Beach, Key West, Layton and unincorporated Monroe County? To insinuate the county has lit a fuse to a petard that has blown up in our face is so off the mark. The 100 units at hand for Marathon is not the issue. Im sure you are aware that several lodging owners in Marathon have serious questions on this issue that go unanswered. Am I opposed to 100 transient units in Marathon? Absolutely not. Smart growth promotes development in developed areas with appropriate infrastructure. However, I am opposed to the big-picture issue of circumventing the process of public input without an appropriate explanation from DEO.The county initiated the U.S. Army Corps of Engineersformula to distribute the promised $100 million for sewers to Marathon, Islamorada and Key Largo, along with the Stan Mayfield/Department of Environmental Protection legislation calling for $200 million, which still languishes in Tallahassee, authorized but unappropriated.Thats called a hot check in the America where I live. This billion-dollar unfunded mandate would have been finished if the feds and state government had done what they teased us with 15 years ago. There were two occasions where the county and municipalities asked the state to allow us to institute a revenue source to complete sewers and stormwater systems affordably and equitably for all of our constituents, only to be denied. The State Revolving Loan Fund is tapped out, and the state and the feds have reneged on earlier promises of financial support although the county continues to search for funds to make wastewater treatment truly affordable for Monroe County residents. Monroe County has a capital funding plan for the Cudjoe Regional sewer system. The county will live up to its commitment to provide affordable advanced treatment for wastewater in the Cudjoe Regional service area. However, since the feds and the state abandoned us, itll be on our terms. George Neugent is the Monroe County commissioner from District 2.Charter schools provide choice but they shouldnt receive special treatment as they doBefore there was a federal Race to the Top for education reform, governors throughout the nation looked to infuse competition into a stale public school system that was leaving behind millions of children, mostly in poor neighborhoods. Thus, charter schools were born, becoming a public-private hybrid of a new system that has, indeed, brought higher standards, demanded results and produced achievement. In Florida including the Florida Keys there are many successful charter schools, but there are troubling signs that a free market of educational ideas can hurt the very children charter schools were created to help.The problem is the state law that has allowed financially troubled charter schools to open quickly only to predictably shut down and leave students and their families in the lurch. Another problem: Some charter schools cherry-pick the best students by sending out mailers and encouraging them to apply, leaving traditional public schools with the most difficult students to teach.Thats not quite a level playing field, though the law requires that charter schools give all students equal opportunity to enroll. Alottery system is supposed to make sure of that. But who checks the results of that lottery? Not the state and school districts arent allowed to do so. African-American and poor students, meanwhile, are less represented in charter schools than Hispanics or non-Hispanic white and suburban students. As reported in recent a Miami Herald three-part series, about 12 percent of charter schools that have opened in the past two decades have closed. In the Sunshine State, that failure rate is double. Why the disparity? Florida law has few regulations to check on finances and academics at charter schools. In fact, during the first few years of charters, Florida didnt even require the schools to make public their studentsFCATscores. The point of charters was to free schools from some of the requirements that public schools must abide by, like class size limits. But at what point does this produce a drastically unlevel playing field? Florida seems to be perilously close to that breaking point. The Legislature can fix this mess while still reaching for educational excellence and competition. The goal should be a high-quality education for all students no exceptions. Miami HeraldCounty right to question more room permits NEUGENT In village, little sewermovementEven though Islamorada chose to begin negotiations with an engineering firm to design, build, operate and finance its wastewater system, village officials have not confirmed they are committed to building a centralized sewer system in compliance with a state mandate. Several members of the five-member Village Council maintain the system may be too costly and if the state doesnt pony up most, if not all, the money to build it, its not going to happen. The Village Council ended the year by voting to begin negotiations with French multinational engineering firm Veolia Water North America to design, build, finance and operate Islamoradas system. The decision concluded months of work by engineers with Veolia and competing firm Reynolds Inc. from Indiana trying to win the job of handling the multimilliondollar project. In the end, an evaluation committee appointed by the village scored one of Veolias proposals the highest both technically and economically.Veolia and Reynolds each submitted several plans, but the one the committee ranked best calls for a 975,000-gallonper-day treatment facility to be built at the old Key Lime property at mile marker 86.6. A force main would carry sewage flow from Lower Matecumbe Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Windley Key and South Plantation Key to the 3-acre site.The treatment facility would have 90-foot shallow wells and treatment tanks that would be built behind the plant. Veolias plan also calls for the existing 350-gallon-per-day plant on North Plantation Key to be upgraded to be able to handle 46,000 gallons a day. Veolia said it would cost $98.7 million to design and build the system. But operating it and financing it over 30 years would cost $224.2 million, according to documents completed by the evaluation committee. But by choosing to negotiate with Veolia, the Village Council made it clear that no decision has been made to green-light the project. The council could still go with another firm, or it could stick with Veolia but insist that the firm draw up plans to pipe wastewater to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment Districts plant at mile marker 101.5. But that option depends on Key Largos willingness to discuss the proposal. Talks between the two entities became strained over the summer after the Village Council gave a counteroffer to use Key Largos treatment plant that district commissioners found insultingly low. Key Largo sewer officials estimated that a fair price to charge Islamorada to treat its wastewater for 10 years would be $11.5 million. But the Village Council countered with $3 million. This prompted the five Key Largo sewer district commissioners to vote to end negotiations. Most of the Village Council members, with the exception of Mayor Michael Reckwerdt, said later in the summer the counteroffer was a mistake, and acknowledged it may have killed what could be the best way to treat Islamoradas wastewater. They wrote a letter to Key Largos commissioners agreeing to the $11.5 million. But Councilman Don Achenberg said at the Village Councils last meeting that Key Largo commissioners have not contacted him, and the potential deal may be a non-starter. Wastewater news dominated the headlines in Islamorada coverage, but the other big news was a massive raid by dozens of federal agents on Reckwerdts business, Robbies Marina on Lower Matecumbe Key, in early November. Its still not clear what the agents from the Internal Revenue Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the FBI were looking for that day. The search warrant affidavit remains under seal. Reckwerdt, who is going through a divorce from his wife, said he has done nothing wrong. He attributed the raid to his shoddy record keeping, which he said he inherited from his parents, who operated the business before their deaths.And the feds target mayors finance recordsBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com2011:A LOOK BACK Photo by DAVID GOODHUEFederal agents serve a search warrant on Robbies Marina, owner by Islamorada Mayor Michael Reckwerdt.

Home sales up double digitsContinued low interest rates and more confident consumers drove existing home sales up in November by 11 percent over last year, according to figures released Dec. 21 by the trade group Florida Realtors. Meanwhile, the median price for an existing home remained relatively flat, a continuation of a trend that Realtors say is a good sign that better days are ahead for an industry that could use a little good news. In recent weeks, weve seen encouraging reports of jobs growth and improvements in Floridas economy, said 2011 Florida Realtors President Patricia Fitzgerald. Mortgage rates have remained at record lows and home prices appear to be stabilizing in many local markets across the state all positive signs for the housing recovery. Another positive sign was that median prices fell only slightly last month, dipping $500 to $131,100 in November from the year before. In the condominium market, sales in November were up 2 percent from a year earlier. Median price grew by 4 percent year to year to $87,700 in November. Along with price stabilization, potential buyers are finding lenders more open to making loans. Meanwhile, interest rates for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.99 percent in November, down from the 4.30 percent average during the same month a year earlier, according to figures compiled by Freddie Mac. The more important factor is that sales are increasing and, in large part, thats due to lenders becoming more educated on how to deal with distressed properties more effectively and in a more timely manner, said Florida Realtors chief economist John Tuccillo. Floridas experience mirrored that of the nation, which saw a 12.2 percent boost in November from the year before, according to the National Association of Realtors, which also released national numbers on Dec. 21. In all, 17 of 19 Florida metro areas experienced year to year grow in sales. Only Fort Myers/Cape Coral (-13 percent) and Panama City (-12 percent) experienced lower sales than in November 2010. Particularly strong markets included West Palm Beach/Boca Raton, up 36 percent; Tallahassee, up 25 percent; and Fort Lauderdale, up 22 percent.November sees 11 percent rise over last yearBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of FloridaREAL ESTATE Sears,Kmart stores closingBetween 100 and 120 Sears and Kmart stores will close, the retailer said Tuesday, after terrible holiday sales during what is the most crucial time of the year for retailers. Sears has yet to determine which stores will be closed, but there has been a clear shift in where the retailer will devote its resources. The company is moving away from its practice of propping up marginally performing stores in hopes of improving their performance. Sears said it would now concentrate on cashgenerating stores. Theres a Sears in Key West, and Kmarts in Key West, Marathon and Key Largo. Given our performance and the difficult economic environment, especially for big-ticket items, we intend to implement a series of actions to reduce ongoing expenses, adjust our asset base, and accelerate the transformation of our business model, CEO Louis DAmbrosio said. These actions will better enable us to focus our investments on serving our customers. Sears would not discuss how many, if any, jobs would be cut. Sears Holdings Corp., based in Hoffman Estates, Ill., said that the store closings would generate $140 to $170 million in cash from inventory sales. The retailer anticipates additional proceeds from the sale or sublease of real estate holdings. The company, which operates Kmart stores, Sears, Roebuck and Co. and Lands End, has seen rival department stores like Macys Inc. and discounters like Target Corp. (theres one in Key West) steal customers away. But the economy is put a sustained financial squeeze on its most loyal customers, those in the middle-income bracket. The retailer had announced numerous closings this year, but this is the largest group of closings to date by far. Hoped for holiday sales to not materialize. Same-store revenue fell 5.2 percent to date for the quarter at both Sears and Kmart, the company said Tuesday. That includes the critical holiday shopping period, a time that most retailers depend on for a sales surge that will put them in the black. Kmarts 6 percent decline in revenue at stores open at least a year was blamed on diminished layaways and a drop in clothing and consumer electronics sales. Searscited lackluster consumer electronics and home appliance sales for its 4.4 percent drop off. Sears clothing sales were flat, while sales of LandsEnd products at Sears stores rose mid-single digits. Sears Holdings said that the declining sales, ongoing margin pressure and rising expenses pulled its adjusted earnings lower. The company predicts fourth-quarter consolidated adjusted earnings will be less than half the prior-year periods $933 million. It also anticipates a non-cash charge of $1.6 billion to $1.8 billion in the quarter for a valuation allowance on some deferred tax assets. This figure is a key gauge of a retailers health because it excludes results from stores recently opened or closed. Sears Holdings said it also plans to lower its fixed costs by $100 million to $200 million and trim its 2012 peak domestic inventory by $300 million from 2011s $10.2 billion at the third quarters end. Sears Holdings has more than 4,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.No word on if Keys stores are affectedAssociated PressRETAIL This is the Marathon Kmart,one of three Kmarts in the Keys.The company hasnt said which stores its going to close.BUSINESS BRIEFSAfter 30 years, call it a careerKeys Energy Services Milton Dean Roberts Jr. retires on Friday after working at the Lower Keys electric utility for three decades. Roberts was hired in 1981 when then-City Electric System still graced the utilitys letterhead. During his tenure, he held numerous positions, including meter reader, service technician, senior service technician and meter reader leader. He retires as a service technician leader. Reflecting on the biggest changes that took place during his tenure, Roberts said it would have to be going from actually reading meters manually to using remote read technology. Asked about his most memorable experience, Roberts said it was one he would rather forget barely escaping a pit bull when he worked in the field. In retirement Roberts hopes to dedicate more time to playing golf and co-ed softball, and working on his beloved Mustang. ROBERTS CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551

The magic ran out in the home regional semifinal game when Archbishop McCarthy prevailed, 12-1. The Conchs, under coach Miguel Menendez, finished 17-10.Football: It was an upand-down season, coach Jerry Hughes said after the Conchs finished 5-4, with losses to Miami powers Norland and Jackson keeping them out of the playoffs for the seventh consecutive year. The team got strong performances from receiver Clive Georges, running back NaQuan McNeill and linebacker St. Pierre Anilus.Basketball: Coach Paul Davis resigned after the 211011 boys team went 11-11 and was succeeded by Anton Lopez.

They did, and Scott also landed his first wahoo, a 30-pounder. Throughout the holidays, the SeaSquared crew has hosted families from near and far. Weve fished the Seven Mile Bridge, reef, Hawk Channel and bay waters. Dozens of snappers have become cook-yourcatch at local restaurants along with grouper, cobia, hogfish and porgy. Afew sharks sparked the action. And my smokers are busy with kingfish, amberjack, Spanish and cero mackerel. Jack Middleton, Tom Andrews and Steve Carter had a great catch with Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina at mile marker 10. They landed three amberjack 62, 55 and 48 pounds along with their limit of yellowtail snapper. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters out of the dock at Turtle Kraals in Key West, spent a lot of time fishing the patch reefs in Hawk Channel, where his anglers caught mangrove and yellowtail snapper, margate, plenty of grouper and lots of sharks. Mottice had a chance to fish one of his favorite spots in the Northwest Channel, where they had success with snapper and grouper and even jumped a nice tarpon.Offshore, Mottice says the dolphin, wahoo and sailfish were hanging around 250 feet and ate trolled ballyhoo.

Just over two miles west of Marathon, Pigeon Keys five acres housed more than 400 workers who built Henry Flaglers railroad in the early 1900s. The island was a base camp with a commissary and one-room school during the bridges construction from 1908 to 1912. Following its completion, maintenance crews continued living on Pigeon Key.Acelebration marking the centennial of the first trains journey from the Florida mainland through the island chain to Key West culminates with events from Jan. 14 through 23. On Jan. 14, the public is invited to travel back in time to the 1900s and explore Pigeon Key, largely unchanged compared with other islands in the Keys. Aday of family fun is planned from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with attractions including snorkeling, period games for children such as sack races and bobbing for apples, treasure hunts, woodworking, kettle cooking, a sing-along or two, and square dancing. Live music, entertainment and featured foods of the early 20th Century round out the Flagler-era celebration. Historical tours are to be offered of the islands museum that chronicles the construction of the final installment of the Key West Extension. Many of Pigeon Keys original railroad buildings and houses dating to 1909 still stand.Entrance to the event is free, but a $5 to $10 donation to the nonprofit Pigeon Key Foundation is appreciated.Pigeon Key is accessible by ferry from a visitor center at Knights Key, located at mile marker 47, on the west end of Marathon, and boats are to run continuously during the event. In addition, limited dock space is available for personal boats. To find out specifics, go to www.pigeonkey.net or call 743-5999.

The only known document to contain the signatures of three of the four Key West founding fathers is getting a bath undergoing preservation at one of the nations leading document preservation facilities.The Florida Keys History Department of the Monroe County Public Library has sent an 1829 First of Exchange to the Northeast Document Conservation Center in Andover, Mass., for repair, treatment and preservation. Known locally as the Fleeming Check, the document was an early form of financial exchange similar to current bank checks. Its front and back bear the signatures of three of Key Wests four founding fathers: John William Charles Fleeming (a.k.a. Fleming), John Simonton and John Whitehead. The other one is Pardon Greene. Simonton originally bought the island of Key West from Juan Salas in Havana; he took in Whitehead and Fleeming as partners.The check, for $250 and possibly associated with Fleemings purchase of land, is the only known document bearing all three signatures; its not clear who its made out to. It was exposed to humidity, creasing and atmospheric pollution for nearly 150 years before Etta Patterson donated it in the mid-1960s to the library for safe keeping.The Document Conservation Center which has treated copies of the Declaration of Independence, among other things will de-acidify, clean, mend and encapsulate the check. Preservation of the check is being funded through an anonymous donation to the Friends of the Library.KEYS HISTORY1829 check is found, will be preservedMonroe County historian Tom Hambright and library Administrator Anne Layton Rice check out the historic document.
