The clearance rate the number of crimes solved out of the number of reported cases is 27.2 percent, up from 21.9 percent in 2010, the city is reporting to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which usually releases statewide crime statistics in the spring after receiving them from all police agencies. Police Chief Donie Lee chalks up the improving trends to community policing and targeting repeat offenders.Especially on an island, police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said, your repeat offenders are your bad guys.

If approved as now written, boundaries for Monroe Countys seats in Congress, the Florida Senate and Florida House all change. The redistricting bill expected to be heard on the Senate floor Thursday afternoon will be on a compromise plan reached with the House. Since Senate Republicans hold a 28-12 edge over Democrats in the chamber, the bill is expected to pass. The most notable change comes in Florida Keysrepresentation in Congress. U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, whose District 18 has included Monroe County for the past decade, would not be on the 2012 ballot in Monroe County. Her newly redrawn district now centers on the Miami area and excludes the Keys. Monroe County would be aligned in a new congressional District 26, which includes the Keys, western MiamiDade County and parts of eastern Collier County. U.S. Rep. David Rivera, the incumbent for the redrawn region, is a first-term Republican who has not officially filed for re-election.Key Largo resident Jose F.3 affecting Florida Keys would changePOLITICSAmong trashiest for Spring Break?Key West is second only to Las Vegas in trashiness apparently the good kind for Spring Break, according to the online publication Coed Magazine. It just listed its Americas Top 10 Trashiest Spring Break Destinations, using as criteria the presence of one or more Hooters restaurants (there is no Hooters in Key West); how many strip clubs, tattoo parlors and liquor stores there are; whether the city hosts an annual motorcycle week; and whether film crews from Girls Gone Wild produce footage there. Spring Break in Key West starts toward the end of February or beginning of March and runs about two weeks. City Commissioner Mark Rossi owns a Duval Street complex containing numerous bars, a pizza restaurant and a strip club. He laughed when told of the ranking. I dont think so, Rossi said. That has never been my experience. Coed Magazine Editor Neal Lynch, in comments made to www.ABCNews.com,clarified the intent of the trashy descriptor. Typically, people associate trashy with things of poor quality, however, we associated the word with enjoying guilty pleasures. Like reality television but in real life, where you can have the most amount of fun with the least amount of money. Florida was well represented in the top 10. In descending order after Vegas and Key West are South Padre Island, Texas; Daytona Beach; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Miami Beach; Panama City Beach; Fort Myers; Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; and San Diego, Calif.KEY WESTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comCounty eyes $500,000 land buyThe Monroe County Commission is being asked to purchase a nine-acre lot adjacent to the east end of Key West International Airport runway for $500,000. Ninety-five percent of the cost would be borne by the Federal Aviation Administration; the county would pay the remaining $25,000, county Airports Director Peter Horton said, adding the county has already asked the FAAfor its portion. We should probably hear about it at the time of the [commission] meeting, Horton said. We think it would be approved by the commission because it costs the airport little money. The County Commission meets Feb. 15 at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102 bayside starting at 11 a.m. Horton said the county hopes to use the lot as part of the airports runway protection zone. That zone is a trapezoidal area at the end of the runway that reaches out to South Roosevelt Boulevard. Eight of the nine acres are protected mangroves, but one acre is developable upland. The lot is at 3883 S. Roosevelt Blvd. At one point in time, the then-owners were going to put a 40-unit RVpark right at the end of the runway, Horton said. Horton said the lot has been appraised for as much as $1.5 million, but its beyond foreclosure and owned by First Citizens Bank in Raleigh, N.C. I have an appraisal of roughly $675,000 and they agreed to sell it to us for $500,000, he said.

Peixoto, 50, has filed to run for Congress as an independent. Three other Miami-Dade residents have filed to run against Ros-Lehtinen or Rivera.In the Legislature, Monroe County would become part of a new Senate District 40. Incumbent State Sen. Larcenia Bullard (D-Miami) is not running for re-election due to term limits. Her son, state Rep. Dwight Bullard, has filed for her seat. James Bush III, a former Democratic state representative, also is running. Larcenia Bullards current District 39 includes parts of Broward County and Palm Beach County, which are dropped from the revised Senate district. The new District 40 has a population of 474,566 people, including all residents in Monroe and Hendry counties, and some in eastern Collier County. Miami-Dade would still account for two-thirds of the District 40 population.Florida House District 120, held by three-term incumbent Ron Saunders (D-Key West), would be drawn to include 154,924 residents, including 122,292 of voting age.Miami-Dade County would account for 52.8 percent of the district population, but Monroe County has 50.8 percent of the voting-age residents.Saunders said the new district is more geographically compact and drops parts of Kendall. It actually makes a little more sense, he said. Saunders said he does not object to the new District 120 boundaries but voted against the overall redistricting plan because of concerns about other districts. Redistricting is required after each national census, which occurs every 10 years. Any redistricting plan coming out of the Florida Legislature likely will be tested in court. And the plans will be reviewed by the governors office as well as the Florida Supreme Court.All districts changingFrom Districts,1A tainly 40 RVs at the end of the runway would be a noncompatible use. So this goes back a few years and its the right time and price. In addition to the protection zone, Horton said the county is interested in purchasing the property to use it for mitigation for future development projects. We take that one acre and restore it to mangrove habitat, he said. Horton said theres no project in mind at the moment, but that the airport has considered building an additional 10 hangars. There are 20 now, he said.Theres a tremendous need for more hangars, he said.

There were 120 reported aggravated assaults in 2011 compared to 101 the previous year.She said there were 11 rapes reported in Key West in 2011, down from 19 the year before; 54 robberies, down from 60; and 443 burglaries, down from 639. However, the number of homicides doubled from one to two.Peter Erik Hedvall, 26, is charged with first-degree murder in the Oct. 28 killing of Venezuelan native Jonathon Alvarado, found dead under a truck on Grinnell Street. Police say his head was smashed with a rock.In the other 2011 homicide, Carl Eric Johanson, 66, was found dead Sept. 2 in his apartment at the Henry Haskins Senior Citizen Plaza on Kennedy Drive, bound with his throat slashed.Tod Geofrey Helfrich, 46, is the prime suspect although he has not been charged, as prosecutors await a forensic analysis by the FDLE. Helfrich is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on charges of probation violation and grand theft related to him being caught in Orlando with Johansons car, cell phone and credit card.City: Numbers fallingFrom Key West,1Asee what they send back.Final numbers for Florida and Monroe County are available for the first six months of 2011, which show major crimes on the decline from the same period in 2010.Crimes factored into the assessment include murder, forcible sex crimes, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and thefts. Monroe County overall saw a 6.5 percent drop in the first six months of 2011. The number of significant crimes reported was 1,865, down from 1,995 in early 2010. The number of aggravated assaults went up by 18.7 percent 112 to 133 but the number of burglaries plunged by nearly a third from 455 to 319 in the same six-month period. Total thefts increased by less than 2 percent to 1,295. Reported vehicle thefts dropped by a third, from 99 to 69. There were 16 reported forcible rapes in Monroe County in early 2010, compared to 12 in early 2011. Monroe County had only one reported murder in the first six months of 2011, down from three in the same period in 2010. About a quarter of significant crimes were classified as cleared, up 3 percent. The FDLE also reports that all the so-called indexed crimes dropped 3 percent in the first six months of 2011 compared to 2010. The FDLEs full 2011 report is expected to be released later this spring.County stats coming soonFrom County,1ASafety zone would expandFrom Airport,1ABack to square one on assisted livingWith the sudden departure of the intended developer of an assisted-living center in Key West on Friday, the Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition is trying to find someone else to build the facility, but the clock is ticking. Rick Dover, general manager of Family Pride Corp., pulled out of negotiations with city staff for a lease at the Truman Waterfront. He cited current and future upcoming commitments elsewhere.Leading up to that, Dover signaled he might walk away if he was unable to come to terms with the city over the duration of the lease and the ground rent paid into city coffers.The Assisted Care Coalition advertised the project and in September 2010 brought the Tennesseebased Family Pride to the table with the city. Coalition Co-chairman Bookie Henriquez said his group would now re-advertise the project in hopes of attracting another developer.The coalitions lease with the city Dovers company would have potentially sub-leased the property in a separate deal started on Dec. 31 and they have 180 days to make some things happen, City Attorney Shawn Smith said.The coalition has a lease agreement that requires them to submit development-plan approval within 180 days of that commencement date or the lease is void.Held to a six-month timeframe, Henriquez said the advertisement would go out this month, hopefully no later than the first of next month ... then the process will take about four or five months before we get responses back. Smith said hed expect theyll go out and try to get the commission to extend the commencement date.Family Prides plan called for 60 assisted-living units comprising 10 lowincome units for $1,100 per month, eight moderateincome units for $1,700 per month and 42 market-rate units going for $3,800 each month; the total development was expected to cost $10.2 million.Based on a lease summary prepared by Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan, the first 10 years of the ground lease would have cost $1 per year; in years 11 through 49, that would have jumped to $50,400 per year; beyond that, the city wanted an appraisal conducted at that time to determine the price with no cap on possible increases. The City Commission was set to weigh in on the lease talks last month but the move was tabled when it was realized Dover had not incorporated his business in Florida. Smith said Dover never would provide us with the names of officers for the company he intended to incorporate, so he started doing a background check on Dover. That led to the discovery that Dover has an unpaid $19 million federal judgment against him originating in Texas related to the savings-and-loan crisis of the 1980s. Henriquez said the project is still needed and the city would have to make a political, rather than financial, decision. Its a political decision along the lines of is this project a necessity for the city. And if it is, then how much is the city willing to be a partner in that process.Family Pride out,clock now tickingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST State health overhaul comingAstate House panel Monday approved a proposal to overhaul Floridas publichealth system, shifting responsibilities and potentially thousands of jobs from the Florida Department of Health to counties. The proposal (PCS for HB 1263) drew concerns and, in some cases, outright opposition, from pediatricians, a statewide public health group and county officials. They raised questions about issues such as funding for county health departments and the future of the Childrens Medical Services program, which serves children with serious and chronic health conditions. We feel like its really not ready for prime time, Leon County Commissioner Bryan Desloge told the House Health & Human Services Quality Subcommittee. But sponsor Matt Hudson (R-Naples) said the bill is part of a three-year effort to revamp and more narrowly focus the Department of Health. He said county commissioners are in a better position than the state to know local health needs.We stand here today with the opportunity to do something bold, innovative and right for Florida, said Hudson, a key player on health issues because he is chairman of the House Health Care Appropriations Subcommittee.The subcommittee voted 7-4 to approve the bill, which emerged as lawmakers get ready to hit the halfway point of the legislative session today. It remains unclear whether the Senate would support such a bill, as its committees have not considered similar proposals. The bill calls for the Department of Health to put together a plan by Oct. 1 to decentralize public-health services, including transferring responsibilities and employees to county health departments. The decentralization would take effect in January 2014, with the state sending block grants to counties to pay for services.Akey question centers on the block grants and whether rural counties such as Monroe would receive enough money to meet their health needs. Chris Doolin, a lobbyist for a coalition of small counties, said public health departments are critical in regions that have few doctors and a lack of nearby hospitals.The bill calls for distributing block grants on a per-capita basis, but that might provide relatively little money to rural counties with small populations; Monroes population is about 73,000 people. Hudson said he is working on a formula that would better distribute the money. The 152-page proposal includes numerous other changes such as merging two divisions that are part of the Childrens Medical Services program. Also, it would allow the department to establish a provider-service network, a form of managed care, to serve children in the program. Lucy Gee, acting deputy secretary at the Department of Health, said the changes could lead to eliminating 12,000 state jobs, though subcommittee Chairman John Wood (RWinter Haven) said a lot of those jobs would simply be transferred to counties. Gee said department officials are still studying the ramifications of the bill, which was released late last week.

There are six charter schools in the Keys: The Big Pine Academy, Treasure Village Montessori, Montessori Elementary, Ocean Studies, Sigsbee and Key West Collegiate. The overall bill passed 5-1 along party lines, following an identical vote to shoot down an amendment aimed at stripping the construction provision from the bill. Supporters of that provision said it would create more parity between charter schools and other public schools. In all, the millage used to support capital costs in 40 school districts raises about $1.9 billion a year. The real point is: Is my child worth what every other child is worth in this state? asked Scotti Haney, a mother of charter-school students in Bay County. Opponents slammed the measure as a form of corporate welfare that would provide tax dollars to the private operators of charter schools despite the fact that supporters of charter legislation said years ago they would not ask for capital outlay dollars.This legislation is a plan to give public tax dollars away to for-profit corporations to buy assets that the public will never own, said Kathleen Oropeza of the advocacy group Fund Education Now.School districts also argued that much of the money had already been dedicated to fund borrowing for existing projects and some of the funds paid for maintenance.There will be another stop, Sen. Bill Montford (DTallahassee). Well have plenty of time to continue the discussion.Construction funding may be shiftedNews Service of FloridaEDUCATION

Robert C. Davis, 63, and Cynthia G. Davis, 56, listed owners of Luxury Limousines of the Florida Keys, each posted a $35,000 bond after booking at the Plantation Key jail Center and were released. Mr. Davis collected tax from customers at his business, said a Department of Revenue spokeswoman. However, during various periods beginning in 2006 and lasting through periods in 2010, he failed to send into the state all of the sales taxes that he had collected, or file tax returns as required by law. Under state law, sales tax is the property of the state at the moment of collection, she noted. Robert Davis was arrested by Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies on Friday. Cynthia Davis was booked Monday. Both are charged with one felony count of failing to send sales taxes to the state plus six misdemeanor counts of not filing required sales-tax information. If convicted, a sentence could include five years in prison and a $5,000 fine, plus restitution of the missing money, according to the revenue agency.Limo owners failed to send them to stateCRIME FRONT DAVIS DAVIS KEY WESTCounty set to OK Higgs Beach moneyHiggs Beach in Key West, long the target of redevelopment, could continue to see improvements if the Monroe County Commission approves $223,600 in funding on Feb. 15 for Phase 1 construction of a new playground.The Atlantic-side parcel, owned by the county, is bisected by Atlantic Boulevard, separating the park side, which contains the Astro City playground, from the beach side, which has vendors, bathrooms and a restaurant.Amajor aspect of the Higgs Beach master plan is rerouting the road to create more space on the beach side while putting the playground adjacent to the bathrooms and other amenities. Thats scheduled for funding by the Florida Department of Transportation in 2015.Architect Bill Horn said that if approved, Phase 1 would comprise about half the total playground project envisioned in the master plan.Were keeping the playground thats there until eventually the road moves, Horn said of Astro City. But were able to maybe get close to half of the playground thatll ultimately be there. Thats the only land we have available because the road is still there. That still gets some new equipment for the kids.Horn said the new equipment will consist of two large installations, one geared toward younger kids, the other toward older youths, plus swings, a new fence, fresh sand and a water fountain.The County Commission is set to consider the matter when it meets Feb. 15 beginning at 9 a.m. in the Murray E.

Itll be the second of three meetings up and down the Keys where the County Commission looks to gauge interest in a nonbinding referendum on the November ballot asking if the current system of the governor appointing FKAAmembers should be replaced. Ultimately, the decision lies with the Legislature. Neugent brought the idea forward after receiving numerous calls in the wake of the utilitys Nov. 22 meeting. 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, raising the suspicions of many that there was some kind of back-room deal agreed to in advance. At the January County Commission meeting in Key West, FKAAretirees Kathryn Ovide and Margaret Gil spoke against a referendum, while Big Pine resident Joyce Newman favored Neugents plan and questioned the transparency of the Nov. 22 meeting. County Attorney Suzanne Hutton said shes received a copy via e-mail of a petition compiled by former FKAA board member Rose Dell (2003-2011) in support of the referendum, with 33 signatures on it. 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 commission meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102 bayside. Other agenda items include:Approval of a resolution requesting the state Legislature approve bonding of $50 million for Keys sewer projects proposed in the House budget. The 2012-13 budget includes $4.8 million to finance the first year of debt for the 20-year bond. The so-called Mayfield legislation in 2009 authorized $200 million over four years but its never been allocated. The financing must survive votes by the full House and Senate, and approval by Gov. Rick Scott, who is opposed to the state taking on more debt. If approved, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said the funding would help the county break ground on its estimated $156 million Cudjoe Regional system covering 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe through Big Pine Key. Some of it could also go to Islamorada. The state mandates central sewers be running in the Keys by December 2015.An amended contract with Monroe County Transit allowing the service to transport Keys Medicaid patients to medical appointments.

Oscar Braynon (D-Miami Gardens).The committee also heard a combined version of two bills (SB 590, SB 568) dealing with red lights including a tweak to the law dealing with red-light cameras. The legislation would require twice-a-year testing of the controversial cameras and spells out that the burden of proving the guilt of someone caught by a redlight camera remains on the government and making clear that alleged red-light runners have the right to challenge their tickets in court.

EDITORIALMore insurance woes for Keys?LETTERS TO THE EDITORReign in charter schoolsFlorida has been going through a time of educational trauma, but this is not the time to make widespread changes that hurt public education. When so many laws are passed at one time that favor charter schools over public schools, a situation will be created affecting both that will spin out of control. Our children will be hurt. Bills that are speeding through the Legislature include Florida SB 1852, charter schools, and HB 903, which authorizes charter schools to increase student enrollment, expand grade levels, submit quarterly financial statements and consolidate charters and their terms. It also authorizes district school boards to share revenue raised for education on a student pro-rata basis with charter schools. If they dont, money given to districts will be re-evaluated. Federal money will be authorized to go directly to charter schools. While public charter schools already receive district funds, this bill will take away any local accountability. It also will force funding for private, forprofit charter schools. Unfortunately, SB 242 is requiring the Office of Public Policy Analysis and Government Accountability to determine the minimum per-student funding to meet constitutional requirements. Many districts are already struggling. This will make it worse. Also, under SB 1522, Accountability in Public Schools, high school charter schools that have a common end-of-course exam are not required to take statewide comprehensive assessments. The heavy financial burden of the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test, costing in the millions and which falls upon all public schools, will not be born by charters. Educational fads have also achieved popularity for a short time, and then found, after research, not to be nearly as effective as what they replaced. Before public education is hurt, please look at the research on charter schools, the failure rates and who is actually receiving benefits from these schools. If charter schools hurt part of the school population, eventually all people are hurt. William M. Smith Jr. Summerland KeyDeath not her faultI read the article on Colleen OMalley being charged with manslaughter for her brothers death in Key West due to a drug overdose. Raymond Moffitan was my husband from 1967 to 1975. I had continued to have contact with him and his family from time to time over the years and I know there has to be more to this story than meets the eye. Ray loved his sister very much and she loved him back. He was always her big brother and she would never do anything to hurt him. Raymond was having some problems with chest and back pain right before his death, and he was very overweight. More than likely, he had a heart attack but I sincerely doubt that it was caused by the drug alone. His lifestyle and obesity caused his death. I am sure that his wife Dana is grieving, but the rest of his family is also. If Raymond were here to tell the story, I am sure he would blame himself and he would be horrified to know what agony his sister is going through at this time. I pray that this nightmare ends and that Raymond may rest in peace. Sharon Moyse Delhi, N.Y.Depopulation of Citizens Insurance just means higher rates would go to private firms, not the stateThe Florida House last week passed legislation that would make it easier for surplus lines insurers to take on homeowner policies now held by Citizens Property Insurance Corp. The goal: Shrink the size of state-backed Citizens and let private, for-profit insurers take over a big chunk of Citizensrisk. Should this latest effort to depopulate Citizens worry property owners in the Keys? No, according to Annalise Mannix, executive director of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe (FIRM). The grassroots citizens lobbying group has been fighting the good fight over windstorm insurance and related issues for more than six years. Here in the Keys, more than 24,000 properties are insured with Citizens. Those policyholders who want to stay with Citizens could under language in both the House and Senate versions. More importantly, a Citizens policyholder who does agree to move to a private insurer can go back to Citizens if he or she becomes uncomfortable with the way his or her coverage is being handled. During debate on the House floor Friday, lawmakers supporting depopulation conceded Florida property owners may pay more to a private company for insurance, but then argued those same property owners face future assessments in the event of a catastrophic storm in which losses exceed Citizens reserves. State Rep. William Proctor (R-St. Augustine) said policyholders should be given the choice: Pay now or pay later. They can continue to be with Citizens and enjoy suppressed rates,but will pay a big assessment if theres a big storm later. In the Keys, FIRM makes a strong case that Citizensrates are too high, not suppressed, especially given the history of claims paid in Monroe County. On average, a Monroe County policyholder has paid at least 68 percent more premium than policyholders in any other county, and has been responsible for at least 75 percent less loss, according to an analysis of rates and losses from January 2003 through March 2011. Not surprisingly, even some Republican lawmakers were not swayed by the pay now or pay later arguments. Friday, the final vote was 66-48. Among those who bucked the party line: Eight Miami-Dade Republicans who represent Miami, Miami Lakes and Hialeah. Our own state Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West) voted against the Citizens depopulation bill. When it comes to insurance legislation, you can expect the Republican-controlled Legislature to continue to do the industrys bidding, which means further dismantling of Citizens Property Insurance and higher rates.Challenge Days a hitI was privileged to participate in a most impressive and value-searching program at Coral Shores High School called Challenge Day. Thanks to Dave Murphy (Coral Shores principal) and Michele Sutter (Be the Change program manager), 95 Upper Keys students (236 students countywide along with 76 adults) were given the opportunity to experience a mind-opening and, in many ways, soul-searching activity encouraging anti-bigotry, anti-bullying and pro-ethical attitudes and behavior. Due to programs like Challenge Day, which are integrated within the traditional school curriculum, it is little wonder our Keys youth are among the highest scoring and preeminently soaring students in Florida. Ted Cudnick TavernierSoccer season a hitI am sure that during the course of this past fall and winter, many people saw our local youth practicing and playing soccer at Founders Park in Islamorada. We recently concluded a very successful season in which more than 400 boys and girls ages 4 to 16 were able to experience the thrill of playing and learning soccer through our Region 864 of the American Youth Soccer Association. None of this would be possible without the dedicated work of our volunteers and the generous support of our sponsors. It takes 125 coaches, referees, team moms, field liners, concession workers, schedulers, coordinators and administrators to accomplish this. Through their hard work, we hosted 220 games during the season; more than 500 practices; the Hurricane Cup, which hosted more than 300 players from Miami-Dade and Monroe County; and a successful tournament season that concluded with a very respectable showing at the AYSO state games, with three of our seven local teams finishing in the top three or better. Additionally, we will be sending three teams to the AYSO National Games in Knoxville, Tenn., this July. Thank you to the volunteers for making this possible. Through the generous support of our 45 sponsors, we are able supply uniforms and equipment to our teams and keep our registration fees low and provide player scholarships to disadvantaged players. We are very proud to have never turned away a player over money because of the generous backing of these sponsors, and for that I am eternally thankful. Additionally I am very thankful for the hard work of my board of directors, which includes Laura Weinstock, Randy Hendricks, John Dixon, Suzie Pauchey, Jacques Pauchey, Charlie Mather, Tammy Gautier and Linda Del Pino. Aspecial thank you to the staff at Founders Park for allowing us the use of their fields. Their maintenance staff does an incredible job making our fields the best in the county and trash free. Lastly I would be remiss if I did not specifically point out and thank the number of youth volunteers that referee games, coach teams and clean up the fields. These kids demonstrate to us week in and week out just what is so great about our Keys kids today, with many of them stepping in when adults will not. Thank you to the parents and players who made the 2011-12 season so successful and please look for us this May when we will be registering players for the fall season.

Heather Chandler-Cabrera Operations manager Salvation Army Monroe County Students at Coral Shores High School participate in that schools recent Challenge Day.Audit panel changes ruleIts no longer freewheeling discussion at the Monroe County School Districts Audit and Finance Committee meetings.Monday, the advisory panel changed the way it accepts public comment. Rather than allowing casual conversation through an informal workshop setting as had been the case, speakers are now restricted to three minutes per agenda item.Committee Chairman Stuart Kessler said the change is based on almost unanimous comments ... that a couple of individuals were abusing their privilege and it made the meeting unproductive and we need to have a change in policy.The committee meets at 9:30 a.m. the first Monday of each month at Marathon High School, and attendance is usually limited to committee members appointed by the School Board, district support staff, schools watchers Margaret Romero and Sloan Bashinsky, and School Board candidates Ed Davidson and Larry Murray, himself a former committee member.We, the public, were the last to know about the format change, Murray wrote in an e-mail to Bashinsky, and would not have known until Monday had not the agenda been given wide distribution.Apparently, there was considerable chortling within the administration with you and I as the butt of the humor.The timing of this change in citizen input ... is interesting, Bashinsky wrote back. The referendum is behind us, public relations perhaps less critical. It looks to me the AFC is a public relations front the School Board came up with to create an impression the School District was getting serious about getting its finances in order. On Jan. 31, Keys voters approved extending for four years a half-cent tax for operating funds for the district. The first year, its projected to raise $9.8 million. If you have a comment, youll be recognized and have three minutes to speak on that issue, Kessler said. The previous method was just an informal workshop where people just participated in conversation. Unfortunately, because a few people abused that, it had to ruin it for everybody. The system of allowing comment on each agenda item is in line with practices of the County Commission and Key West City Commission.Kessler:Some people abused old practiceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Evacuation model gets a redoState and Monroe County officials have begun hurricaneevacuation workshops that will affect land development in the Keys for years to come. As county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley pointed out at the first meeting, on Feb. 7, development is guided by, among other things, the need to quickly evacuate tourists and residents when a serious hurricane threatens.State law requires that hotel-room guests, mobilehome residents and sitebuilt homeowners evacuate the Keys within 24 hours of when an evacuation is called. The evacuation process is phased, starting with tourists.Hurley noted that by July 1, the county and municipalities are expected to finalize a memorandum of understanding with the state departments of Economic Opportunity and Emergency Management regarding a new hurricane evacuation model for the Keys. The memo will be based on data and agreed-upon variables and assumptions. Hurley said after that, the state would run the model and develop a maximum buildout capacity for the Area of Critical State Concern.Its related to the total number of housing units the Keys can receive, Hurley said. Hurley was one of several presenters who talked about a variety of subjects influencing the new Emergency Management model. They included:Jeff Alexander of the Northeast Florida Regional Planning Council, who spoke about the technology used to create the model. He said it utilizes a 100 percent participation rate, whereas the former Miller evacuation model used a lower rate.Rebecca Jetton, Area of Critical State Concern administrator for DEO, pointed to the number of vacant buildable lots in the Keys: 8,758 in unincorporated Monroe, 1,281 in Marathon, 1,109 in Islamorada, Key Colony Beach 92, Key West 84, Layton 13.Barbara Powell of the DEO discussed humanbehavior assumptions. She said surveys of Keys residents showed several findings, including that 15 to 20 percent of all types of housing residents leave before an evacuation order, people prefer not to evacuate at night, and that the most significant factor affecting response is the urgency of the evacuation order. The group discussed concerns and suggestions after the presenters, and Jetton said many of those would be addressed prior to a Feb. 27 workshop in Key West.

Fleetwide, booking volumes declined by percentages in the mid-teens compared to a year earlier between the time of the accident and Jan. 25, the Miamibased company said. Activity bottomed out on Jan. 16. Those figures do not include bookings for the cruise behemoths Italybased Costa brand, which executives said are difficult to interpret, though activity is believed to be down significantly. The company Key West is a port of call for numerous Carnival ships also said it cut back significantly on marketing during what is typically the busiest season for future cruise bookings. But Carnival said and many analysts agreed that the company expects the impact to be short-lived. Despite these recent trends, we believe the incident will not have a significant long-term impact on our business, the company said in the annual report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Between loss of use of the 950-foot ship, insurance deductibles and other costs related to the incident that has killed at least 17 people, Carnival said full-year profits are expected to be reduced by $155 million to $175 million. The cost of fuel is also expected to take a bigger chunk out of profits than originally thought. The company will release revised guidance for the fiscal year ending Nov. 30 in March. Wells Fargo Securities analyst Tim Conder says the financial fallout is likely to last into 2013.Company ships routinely stop in Key WestBy HANNAH SIMPSONhsimpson@MiamiHerald.comCRUISE LINES Photo by ANDY NEWMANThe Carnival cruise ship Fascinationis one three Carnival ships that has Key West on its itinerary.Thieves preying on tax returns, IRS saysIf you havent filed your tax return yet, someone may have filed it for you. The federal government has stepped up efforts to get between identity thieves and their latest targets: Fat tax refunds. Last week, the Internal Revenue Service announced that 105 people in 23 states had been targeted as part of a national identity theft crackdown involving the potential theft of thousands of identities and taxpayer refunds. At one IRS office in Florida, at least a dozen tax filers said they spent hours in line to report someone had already filed their returns with the tax season just weeks old. The IRS has been grappling with a nearly fivefold increase in taxpayer identity theft between 2008 and 2010, a Government Accountability Office official told a House hearing last summer. Incidents spiraled from about 52,000 in 2008 to nearly 250,000 in 2010. But federal officials from prosecutors to IRS officials have promised tough action. The IRS is aggressively pursuing those who steal othersidentities in order to file false returns, Steven Miller, the agencys IRS Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement, said in a written statement. Adozen taxpayers complained of missing work last week while they waited at the IRS office in Plantation in Broward County to file identity theft affidavits. Wilda Williams of Miramar said she first tried to file a police report when she found someone had already filed a tax return in her name. But the police wouldnt take it, she said. Officers told Williams to go to the IRS office, where she ended up waiting for hours in a line outside the IRSoffice. Shatina Burke of Coral Springs said she had been counting on getting a $6,000 income tax refund check, only to be told by her paid tax preparer that someone else had already filed hers some identity thief. Burke said she was turned away the first time she tried to file an identity theft affidavit at the Plantation IRS office. I was standing in line for three hours, and they told me I had to come back, she said. So Burke said she took off work to again stand in line until she finally could see an IRS agent to file the required affidavit. IRS spokesman Mike Dobzinski apologized for the long waits, but said the Plantation office has six vacancies, and the IRS cant hire replacements because of a federal hiring freeze. The IRS already has announced that some early taxpayers who filed on or before Jan. 25 may have to wait a week longer than expected because of new anti-fraud safeguards being installed on computer systems that required fine-tuning. Tammy Reib, a Coconut Creek single mom of three, said she finally was able to turn in her ID theft affidavit with an IRS worker in Plantation after waiting seven hours last week. Then, the accounting assistant said, she was told it may be another four to six months before she gets a refund of nearly $5,000. I was so excited just to be catching up on my bills, Reib said. She dreamed of getting a new couch. Her boss, Linda Webb, said she worries that the IRS may become overwhelmed with fraud cases. This is just the start of tax season, she said.Its happening despite the safeguardsMcClatchy-TribuneYOUR TAXES BUSINESS BRIEFSMarinersFowler wins Osprey AwardAmy Fowler, house supervisor at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier, has received the medical centers Osprey Award for outstanding leadership.

Mulkeen, one of the Canesmore experienced wrestlers, was edged out in the highly competitive 152 bracket. J.D. missed two weeks of practice with an injury and came back for the district, Nunn said. That was tough enough, then he ran into a stacked weight class. The top four weightclass finishers from the Friday and Saturday meet at Cardinal Gibbons qualify for the Florida Finals championship meet.4 matmen off to regional on FridayCORAL SHORES WRESTLING Coral Shores wrestlers bring home medals from the District 16-A Meet.They are (from left) John Perrotti,Sterling Hill,Rion Hunter and Tom Johnson.Hill won the districts 189-pound title.All compete in this weeks regional tournament.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comCanes, Conchs square off in districtCoral Shores Highs basketball Hurricanes know what theyre getting in todays semifinals of the District 16-4ATournament. As the No. 4 seed in the four-team district, the Canes (5-16) draw No. 1 seed Key West (13-0) in the 6 p.m. game at host St. Brendan. The stunningly quick Conchs handled the Canes in both regular-season meetings this winter. Were excited for the challenge, Hurricane head coach Jay Sanderson said. Any time you get to play a Keys rival in a setting like the district tournament, you go out and have fun. The Canes finished the regular season Friday with an 87-61 loss at Archbishop Carroll. Center Will Ismer topped the Cane scoring with 18 points. Carroll hit 15 three-point shots, which was more than our made free throws, Sanderson said. The Canes went 13-of-36 from the free-throw line, a season-long source of anguish during Sandersons first year as head coach. When you give away points, that makes it tough to win, he sighed. Cane forwards Aldon Todd and Austin Wilkins missed the Carroll game with injuries, and are questionable for todays district opener.Coral Shores coming off a defeatKeynoter StaffPREP BASKETBALL14 wrestlers head to regionalWith seven athletes going undefeated, the Key West High School wrestling team won its third consecutive District 16-1Atournament Saturday at Westminster Christian in Miami. The Conchs won the seven-team event with 225 points Coral Shores was fifth and advanced all 14 wrestlers to the Region 4-1Ameet that will be held Friday and Saturday at Cardinal Gibbons High in Fort Lauderdale. We have wrestled againstmuch better competition all season, and I thought we would have 14 get through, said coach Chaz Jimenez. Key Wests top wrestlers 145-pound Max Llama and 182-pound St. Pierre Anilus both went 2-0 to improve to 372 and 38-4, respectively. The other Conchs to go 2-0 and win district titles were Andre Guieb (152 pounds), Glenn Evans (132), Andrew Calderwood (138), D.J. Laguna (120) and John Pirrano (170). Ivan Demier (126) was awarded first place because he had no competitors. Four Conchs finished second Angelo Guieb (106), Trey Brisley (113), Jerry Regis (220) and Uri Diaz (116), and Jack Walker (heavyweight) and John Posey (195) each finished third. Jimenez said he expects to have three to six wrestlers advance to the state meet.Conchs win tourney at WestminsterBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST WRESTLINGSailfish bite remains slow off parts of KeysFor some reason, the sailfish dont seem to want to make their way to the Middle and Lower Keys. While fishing for sails is pretty good in the areas from Key Largo to Tennessee Light, there are only scattered catches from Marathon to Key West, with no consistency. However, throughout the Keys, there is plenty of action on king mackerel, blackfin tuna and dolphin in 120 to 200 feet. Thanks to the warm winter were having, the yellowtail snapper bite remains excellent on the reef. And there are plenty of muttons and mangroves mixed in to keep things interesting. The reef is holding large kingfish in the 40-pound class and, on the reef edge, lots of twoto four-pound cero mackerel. On the wrecks, amberjack fishing remains very good, mingled with some nice muttons. The patches and channel humps are offering up loads of snapper of all kinds, with muttons taking live pilchards on the outside patches. Hang on the humps and youll be rewarded with hogfish, porgy and a bounty of Spanish mackerel. On a windy day, head to the bridges and bay, where the mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel bite remains consistent. Further out, more and more cobia are showing on the wrecks along with some big kings.The weeks bestJoe Smith, Alex Vigil and Mike Pachelli from Manteo N.C. turned a windy day into a limitedout day with Capt. Howard Kelley of Fin Chaser Charters out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. They got a great haul of large mangrove snapper. Also docked at Captain Pips, Capt. Jeff Shelar of Catch-Em-All Charters reports good deep-dropping for amberjack, muttons and catch-and-release on nice-size groupers, along with lots of the usual reef and Hawk Channel action for mangrove and lane snapper and big kingfish. Shelars catch of the week goes to Larry Boone from Nashville, who caught (and released) a 52-pound gag grouper on the reef. Despite a patch of windy days, the crew of the SeaSquared got our groups out for some excellent mangrove snapper fishing with lots of yellowtail, hogfish, porgy and mackerel mixed in. Jerry Joyce, Karen Barker, Anna Barker and Norm Reardon, from Reddick, Ill., brought in a nice catch of yellowtail snapper on a rainy day outing with Capt. Kevin Wilson, of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina in the Lower Keys. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters at the dock at Turtle Kraals in Key West, caught yellowtail and mangrove snapper, cero mackerel and plenty of keeper-size grouper (released) on the patch reefs using chum and cut shrimp trash. On the flats, the shark fishing was fantastic with American sharp nose, blacktips and even a few hammerheads. The northwest channel had quite a few tarpon, and on two occasions Mottices anglers were able to bring a couple to the boat for a photo op.Fishing seminarThe Marathon Boat Yard Marine Center, 2059 Overseas Highway oceanside, continues its 2012 seminar series on Thursday with speaker Capt.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Wednesday,February 8,2012 Conchs are favorites against CanesOptimistic Conchs hit the fieldWith a strong pitching staff and confidence gained from last springs regional semifinal appearance, the Key West High School baseball is set to confidently embark on the new season. I feel good about this group, said coach Miguel Menendez, whose six-year record is 99-68. We have a nice mix of veteran guys and newcomers, and I think last year really whet our appetite for more. The Conchs, who have 11 state titles and are looking for their first one since 2005, will play two pre-season games this weekend at Rex Weech Field against West Boca at 8 p.m. Friday and Coral Reef at 6 p.m. Saturday. On the mound, the Conchs should have a Big Three in junior Chris Garcia, sophomore Darren Miller and senior Garrett Pita, all of whom were effective last season when the team went 17-10. Miller, who will also play third base, was a freshman sensation as a hitter and pitcher last year and recently committed to Florida State. I expect a whole lot from Miller, Menendez said. He has a year [of experience] and has only gotten better. What we saw of him in the district tournament and playoffs last year is what we expect through a whole season this year. Senior Michael Abreu will come in from shortstop to close games, and the other relievers will be senior Reny Garcia, senior Tommy Ruffennach all with varsity experience and freshman Andrew Freeman. Menendez said freshman Zack Hughes will be the teams new catcher, replacing Michael Henriquez, who was the heart of last years team. That is not the easiest position to come into and start as a freshman, the coach said, but we are confident in him and expect him to do well. Anchoring the outfield will be center fielder Steven Wells, who was outstanding defensively last season. He will be flanked by Ruffennach in left and Matt Chelekis in right. Senior Joseph Varela returns at second base and sophomore Hugo Valdez will replace the graduated Johnny Monsalvatge at first. The Conchs have new opponents in their four-team district Gulliver Prep, St. Brendan and Coral Shores. Gulliver is loaded and will always be tough, Menendez said. St. Brendan has really improved under a new coaching staff and Coral Shores gets better every year under Pat and Jeff Meyers. There will be no easy games in this district.Diamond squad plays preseason gamesBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West sophomore Darren Miller,who has committed to Florida State,pitches during the Conchsintrasquad game last Friday.Lady Conchs in the playoffsIts on to the state playoffs for the Key West High girls basketball team, even though it lost to Gulliver Prep, 67-54, in the District 16-4Atitle game Saturday night at St. Brendan High in Miami. The Conchs will play a regional quarterfinal game at 7 Thursday night at Ransom Everglades, the 15-4Achampion. Key West, which lost twice in the regular season to Gulliver by an average of 22 points, was tied with the Raiders, 19-19, early in the game and down by only 37-30 in the third quarter. The girls came out and ran hard up and down the coach, said Anton Lopez, the Conchsboys coach who was filling in for Tez Waters, who has been ill. But you cant make mental mistakes against a team like Gulliver, and thats what ended up happening. They executed on every attempt. Senior Shaniya Watson led the Conchs with 23 points. Key West (7-5) did not play Ransom (18-8) during the season. Both teams defeated St. Brendan twice by comfortable margins, but Ransom lost to Gulliver by only 45-42 on Jan. 21.Regional is on Thursday at RansomBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALLDiamond Dolphins host tournamentThe Marathon High School baseball team opens play Friday and Saturday hosting a four-team preseason tournament. The Dolphins will face Fort Pierce Westwood High School Friday at 8 p.m., and Somerset Academy Saturday at 3 p.m. Palmer Trinity School is the other participant. Palmer will face Somerset at 3 p.m. Friday and there will be a homerun derby starting at roughly 6 before the Dolphins game at 8. For Saturdays games 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. starting times the Outback Steakhouse will set up shop from 11a.m. until 4 p.m. Theyll sell steak and chicken lunches with an assortment of side dishes for $12. The Dolphins are coming off a solid 14-10 season, which ended disappointingly with a 10-9 loss to Mater Lakes Academy in the District 16-2Atournament semifinals. The biggest hole to fill will be that of No.1 pitcher Matt McKeon, who graduated. Taking his place as the No. 1 starter is senior Joey Gonzalez, who finished with a 6-4 record in 2011. Hes been working hard and going to developmental camps and showcases, coach Luis Leal said. Hes not a hard thrower; hes right around 80 mph with his fastball, but it has a lot of movement and he changes speed well. Offensively, the team will rely heavily on junior shortstop Yoniel Esquirol and freshman second baseman Carlos OFarrill to produce runs. Gonzalez and Esquirol both recently took part in the Under Armour national showcase tryout. Gonzalez was placed with a Cape Cod team with which hell spend time over the summer, while Esquirol earned a spot on the prestigious Team One Florida roster. Its one of six regional Under Armour Team One teams showcasing 120 top players in various parts of the country. The showcase is scheduled for June 13. This year will be Marathons first in the sixmember South Florida Baseball Conference, which offers a chance to compete against similar-size schools, such as Keys rival Coral Shores High School. The Dolphins open the regular season Feb. 14 with a visit to Ransom Everglades School at 7 p.m.Games start this Friday; 4 teams inMARATHON BASEBALLConchsstirring victory. I was a little excited to have them take me this far, said Lopez, who wasnt named coach until late last summer. The Conchs won with a startling 15-0 run to begin the second quarter that extended a 17-16 lead to 32-16. That adrenalinefueled surge was highlighted by 3-point shots by Ryan Wagner, Tony Guieb and JeQuan Lopez. The Conchs, who made 10 shots from behind the arc, led 45-27 at halftime, and later led by 25 points. The starters scored all but one of the 73 points, with Guieb leading the way with a career-high 22. Lopez had 15, Thomas Butler 14, Wagner 13 and Anthony Rice eight. Ransoms leading scorer, 6-4 guard Sam Singer, who did not play in the Conchs63-55 victory in early January, scored 37 points. But the Raiders other star, 6-7 sophomore Trey Mourning, son of Miami Heat great Alonzo Mourning, did not play Saturday. I was told that he had an eye injury, Lopez said. The teams could meet again in the state playoffs; if that happens, the Conchs almost certainly would see Singer and Mourning (who scored nine points in the January game) on the floor at the same time. We didnt show them much either, Lopez said. We didnt run a lot of plays and we didnt press them much at all. As for Coral Shores, the Conchs beat the Hurricanes twice this season by wide margins. From Conchs,1BLady Dolphins split two gamesAnew-look Marathon High School softball team split a pair of preseason tournament games last week in Miami. The Dolphins beat Miami Killian High School, 11-9, on Feb. 8 before losing to a strong Palmetto Bay Academy team, 17-0, the next day. The tournament was hosted by Westminster Christian School. The Dolphins graduated eight seniors last year from a team that finished 12-7 and made a trip to the state regional playoffs. They return just four veteran players. One of them is eighthgrade standout pitcher Jordan Roney, who handled the majority of pitching duties against varsity competition last season as a seventh-grader. Coach Andrea Murphy said shes only gotten better. Shes definitely picked up speed and strength this year. She puts in the work in the off-season, working out and playing travel ball all year round against the best competition, she said. Roney went the distance against Killian, striking out five, walking three and giving up three earned runs. Roney also went 2-for-4 at the plate with two doubles and five RBI. Taylor Konrath was 2for-4 with two RBI, Savannah Rodamer was 2for-4 with one RBI, Ashley Adamo was 2-for-2 and Sacha Olivera was 2-for-4. The Dolphins will rely heavily on Roney, Rodamer and Konrath to provide offense this year. Rodamer will lead off, with Konrath and Roney in the three and four holes. All were pretty big bats for us and we expect the same this year, Murphy said. Roney is one of five eighth-graders on the varsity squad. Theyre all excited to play and theyre hard workers and they want to learn the game, Murphy said. The Dolphins open regular-season play Feb. 14 with a visit to Carrollton School at 4 p.m. Their home opener is scheduled for Feb. 16 at 4:30 p.m. against American Heritage School.Preseason tourney at WestminsterBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOFTBALL By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

In this class, no one gets behind the wheel to learn how to make a three-point turn. Instead, the instructor gives students exercises to loosen their neck muscles and strengthen their ankles. He tells them about special rearview mirrors. And he gives them a reality check. Our bodies after 50 are not the bodies of a 40-yearold or a 30-year-old, says Ramiro C. Acosta. We are never going to be what we once were. Acosta, a 75-year-old retired accountant, is the Spanish program coordinator for AARPs Driver Safety Program. He teaches the six-hour class at the Kendall Regional Medical Center, hosted by Health-2You/Los Saludables, a senior citizen group associated with the hospital. The AARPclass covers topics from accident prevention to car-safety features. AARPmembers pay $12; others pay $14. Most of his students are retirees hoping to get a discount on their car insurance. But Acosta wants them to take home more than savings. I want them to be able to drive in Miami as safely and with as little stress as possible, he says. More seniors are on the road than ever before, and organizations from AARP to AAAand the Florida Department of Transportation are taking note. If current trends continue, older drivers will also be staying behind the wheel longer. This is particularly true for Florida. Statewide, more than 17 percent of the population is 65 and older, and those older folks make up 18 percent of drivers. As the baby boomer generation ages, demographers predict that by 2030, Floridas 65-andover set will make up 27 percent of the population and one in four drivers. Were going to see a tremendous jump, says Gail Holley, the Safe Mobility for Life manager for the Florida DOT. Weve already started to see it. Today, about 94 percent of 65to 69-year-olds and 78 percent of those 70 and older have licenses up from 79 percent and 55 percent, respectively, in 1983. In that same period, the number of drivers under age 40 dropped by 10 percentage points. Researcher Michael Sivak says these changes will have potentially major implications for not only road travel but also car manufacturers. Though many transportation experts are pushing for alternatives to car travel, Acostas students in the AARPclass say they want to drive for as long as they can. Its a matter of independence, Acosta says. No one wants to turn in the keys. Older drivers usually are aware of the effects of aging, and most adapt their driving accordingly. They self-regulate, says Dennis P. McCarthy, director of the South Florida Community Mobility Research Lab at Florida International University. For the most part, seniors are very safe drivers. They avoid situations that make them uncomfortable. So they dont drive at night or on the expressway. They avoid rush hour. They drive fewer miles and have a higher rate of seatbelt use. They tend not to drink and drive. Most experts say they are safer than younger drivers, and often by a lot. A 2010 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study showed that crash rates among older drivers declined at a faster rate than for other age groups. The decrease extended to both fatal and nonfatal injury crashes as well as propertydamage-only crashes. The declining crash rates hold true in Florida as well. Currently, renewal applicants 80 years and older must pass a vision test in Florida and renew their licenses every six years instead of every eight. While there has been much debate about whether these requirements should be tightened, experts say coming up with a fair test is difficult because people age at different rates.Statistics show more seniors on the roadMcClatchy-TribuneSENIOR LIVING Photo courtesy McCLATCHY-TRIBUNEMisjudging gaps in traffic,especially at intersections and on entrance and exit ramps,is a sign you may need a refresher course.
