The suit, filed Friday on behalf of Priscilla Gratton by attorney Michael Allweiss, accuses John Carbonell, president of Super Boat International Productions Inc., and race medical directors Donald DiPetrillo and Brian Haff of gross negligence in the Nov. 11 drowning of veteran racer Joey Gratton, 59, of University Park. The suit demands damages of more than $15,000 and a jury trial.Gratton was at the throttles of the Page Motorsports boat with owner/driver Stephen Page of Fort Myers when the 38-foot catamaran overturned on the first turn in the final lap of the second race in the three-race championship. Page climbed out through an escape hatch in the floor of the cockpit, but Gratton was trapped in his seat.According to the lawsuit, Gratton was alive and uninjured right after the crash, and fought for several minutes to free himself from the harness system that kept him in his seat while breathing from an emergency air tank.With certified rescue dive paramedics dubbed angels hovering over the scene in helicopters, Carbonell held back from deploying them, and instead designated two untrained, inexperienced and ill-equipped volunteers on a nearby boat as first responders as a cost-saving measure, according to the suit.As other race boats roared by, the volunteer divers took several minutes to swim from their boat to the wreckage, which began to sink shutting the escape hatch and trapping Gratton inside, the suit alleges. By the time rescuers got the hatch open, Grattons air supply had run out and he drowned. It should have been a routine, successful rescue had defendants merely followed standard industry practices, procedures and protocols and SBIs own rules, Allweiss, a former director of the American Power Boat Association, wrote in his complaint.

Signup for the 1,500 available spots opened at 6 a.m. and was over by 6:12 a.m.I hear it was closer to 10 minutes, said Ginger Sayer, co-director of the 31st annual run, a benefit staged by the Marathon Runners Club. There are a lot of happy people and some unhappy people, just like always, Sayer said.

I am totally disappointed and upset.Comments on the new registration process posted on the 7 Mile Bridge Run page on Facebook ranged from exultation to frustration at mid-day Tuesday.

CarlyNot everyone thrilled with new processMARATHON Hotel units: Who gets them?Now that the city of Marathon has at least 100 new hotel units available, it has to figure out what to do with them. That process begins Thursday with a 4 p.m. public workshop at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. It really is intended simply to broach the subject with the general public, said Planning Director George Garrett. Weve talked to a number of people to get them to come and we want to get the spectrum of input on the fact that these things are out there and how they should be used and how we should allocate them. In January, the state Cabinet, based on a state Department of Economic Opportunity recommendation, awarded the 100 units in recognition of Marathons nearly completed citywide sewer system. The city could also borrow forward another 100 units. The award created quite a stir, especially with Monroe County, because of a countywide moratorium on new hotel units.

Acoral-transplanting project off Broward County that made news nationally last week borrowed lessons from the Florida Keys. More than two dozen basketball-sized staghorn coral heads grown at Nova Southeastern Universitys National Coral Reef Institute were secured to an inner reef in about 15 feet of water Friday off Browards Atlantic coast.It marked the first time corals grown in an on-land nursery have been transplanted in Broward County, according to a Nova summary.Ken Nedimyer, a Key Largo marine-life collector who created a staghorncoral nursery in 2001 as an experiment, consulted with researchers who worked on the Broward County effort. All these people have been here to my house. It all started here in the Upper Keys, Nedimyer said Monday. Theyre doing it with an open-water system, which is different from what were doing here, but it works, he said, Its all part of the effort to save the corals and the reef. We knew it would work. Now we see what happens when we take it back to the reef. This research aims to develop one of the tools in the managers toolbox to help address critical issues, said Richard Dodge, dean of Novas Oceanographic Center. Our scientists have contributed to transplanting over 1,000 corals offshore and this new initiative is critical to add a new dimension to the effort. Nova plans to triple the size of its shore-based coral nursery later this year. Nedimyer, through his nonprofit Coral Restoration Foundation, grows small corals into medium-size corals at his oceanic nursery before transplanting the corals to damaged reef sites off the Keys. The Nova Southeastern system established a landbased nursery that regularly pumped sea water into a network of 400-gallon tanks. The water was filtered for contaminants and temperature-regulated before being pumped into the coral tanks. Other facilities, including the Florida Aquarium and Georgia Aquarium, are experimenting with growing staghorn coral in a closedwater system, with only limited quantities of new saltwater introduced. The goal is to open a lot of options, Nedimyer said. Well find out which corals grew the fastest and have the best survival rates. Weve always thought all of these were viable options but until we do it and prove it works, somebodys going to say it cant be done. Nedimyer believes his expanded oceanic nursery provides the best system, but knows that a hurricane could play havoc with the immature corals. One storm could wipe us out, he said. Now were creating satellite nurseries and different genetic strains. We know we needed a backup plan but we had a lot of questions to answer. Its vital to have both on-land and in-water nurseries to help better understand how to restore coral reefs, said David Gilliam, an Oceanographic Center assistant professor. Nedimyer said staghorn corals grown in the Keys and moved to transplant sites, like the Wellwood grounding site at Molasses Reef, are showing a 90 percent survival rate. In 2009, the first transplanted corals known to spawn were observed at Molasses. Its very exciting, he said. Other coral nurseries in Keys waters have been established by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in Key West and by Mote Marine Lab in the Lower Keys.

Work on that model is ongoing. Marathon incorporated in 1999 and inherited the countys moratorium on transient units. The only ones available since then are existing units, known as transferable building rights, that can be purchased and moved to another site. Were going to change the code to allow us to issue transient units. Thats just one thing that needs to happen in order for us to allocate the units, Garrett said. Garrett said city staff would not present possible mechanisms to dole out the units on Thursday. He said its too early in the process. I dont think anyone is going to tolerate us just letting them sit there after we asked for them. We have to get them out on the street and built. This is about how we do that in a fair and equitable way, Garrett said.One project that could benefit from the 100 allocations is the recently closed Crystal Bay Resort. Owner Marvin Rappaport shuttered the 26-unit property on the bayside of U.S. 1 near mile marker 50 in September in hopes of turning it into a 100room Marriot Residence Inn.Another is a potential Hampton Inn in Old Town on bayside property owned by Roger Masters. The agreement is for 80 rooms, a restaurant, retail space and marina. Masters owns just 46 of the necessary 80 transient allocations to build the hotel. Masters said he plans to attend the Thursdays workshop and would like to be considered for 34 of the units. That is the only thing preventing us from moving forward, he said. Meanwhile, Garrett said its unclear whether the city would charge for the units, much like private owners do for transferable building rights.School Board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths unveiled plans last week to do just that with its Marathon Manor property adjacent to Marathon High School on Sombrero Beach Road.The former nursing home has 50 affordablehousing allocations tied to it that Griffiths said hes working with the city and DEO to have transferred to 75 hotel unit allocations. He said he believes they could sell for as much as $50,000 each, or $3.75 million.How to divvy up?From Allocations,1A Cops: Man squatted on boatAman who moved onto a sailboat off Key West apparently didnt tell the boats owner, according to marine officers. Eric M. Foor, 22, was arrested Monday on grandtheft charges after being found aboard a 25-foot Clipper sailboat that disappeared from an anchorage off Cow Key Channel. The owner reported the aging boat missing Feb. 17. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Josh Peters recognized the boats name and description. Peters spotted the 1973 vessel moored near Safe Harbor Channel, on the oceanside off Stock Island. Foor, who lists a Grassy Key address, was aboard around 1:15 p.m. Monday. He was arrested on the felony count without incident. Hes being held on $10,000 bond. The boat was not a derelict vessel but had been identified as an at-risk vessel, said Officer Bobby Dube, an FWC spokesman. Under the at-risk program, an FWC officer who believes a boat could be in danger of sinking and becoming a derelict vessel can place a tag on the boat that asks the owner to remedy maintenance issues. There are no penalties unless the boat becomes derelict. At-risk vessels are not considered abandoned. Even abandoned vessels in state waters cannot be claimed as salvage without first acquiring legal title, according to the agency.Hes charged with theft, bonds $100KKEY WEST GLAZEBROOKSandraGlazebrook ,69of Owensboropassedaway Thursday,Feb.2,2012,at OwensboroMedicalHealth System.ShewasbornSept. 18,1942,inBaltimoretothe lateBobBishopandRuth LangloisKenson.Shewasa retiredspecialeducation teacherwiththeSanDiegoCity Schools.Mrs.Glazebrookwas aboardmemberoftheAlma RandolphFoundation,past president/boardmemberofthe OwensboroHerbSociety,alife memberoftheInternational BluegrassMuseumand enjoyedscrapbookingand gardening.Asidefromher parents,shewasprecededin deathbyherhusband,Samuel R.Glazebrookin2005.

Carbonell prevented rescue personnel from conducting pre-race safety inspections to familiarize themselves with the features on individual race boats. To make matters worse, the complaint says, Grattons death came two days after the drowning of Missouri racers Bob Morgan and Jeffrey Tillman, whose Big Thunder boat flipped upside down in Key West Harbor during the events opener. According to the suit, Carbonell, DiPetrillo and Haff did nothing to correct the obvious defects and deficiencies in their policies after the first tragedy. If you had two people drown and you did nothing to shore up your response, then people need to go to jail, Allweiss said in a telephone interview. No criminal charges have been filed in connection with the race. Grattons death was ruled accidental by the Miami-Dade Medical Examiners office. The deaths of Morgan and Tillman were ruled accidental by the Monroe County Medical Examiner.Negligence allegedFrom Lawsuit,1A Perez stabbed once in the chest and once in his arm with a large knife, according to police spokeswoman Alyson Crean. Perez was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he died. Police reports indicate officers recovered a filet knife and butcher knife from the scene. Crean said the fight started on the house boat. Neither police nor prosecutors on Tuesday could explain in detail how the slaying, apparently the result of a drunken argument that quickly escalated, was the result of aforethought on Marquezs part. Crean said the lead detective, who was not responsive to her inquiry for an explanation of the charge, put a lot of thought into the warrant for Marquezs arrest. Chief Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Manny Madruga wasnt apprised of the details when reached on Tuesday, adding that the case hasnt been assigned for prosecution. Madruga said hes still reviewing trial calendars with Assistant State Attorney Val Winter, Then well make a determination, he said. This is the third homicide in Key West since Sept. 2, when Carl Eric Johanson, 66, was found dead in his apartment at the Henry Haskins Senior Citizen Plaza on Kennedy Drive, bound and with his throat slashed. Tod Geofrey Helfrich, 46, is the prime suspect although he has not been charged as prosecutors await forensic analysis by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement 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.Capital murder chargedFrom Marquez,1A Risko Rowland commented from Texas. This was not fair, agreed Loretta Gregory.Since the inaugural Bridge Run that was staged in 1982 before the span officially opened to traffic, Runners Club volunteers annually have been forced to turn away many hopeful applicants. Until this year, all applications were handled by a cumbersome mail process. Race organizers considered moving to online registration for years, Sayer said. In 2011, a flood of applications sent by costly overnight mail convinced the club to make the change. Last year we got an amazing number of applications by express mail, Sayer said. People were spending about $36 on mailing and still getting turned down. Thats no way to build goodwill at all. This does streamline the process, she said. At least people arent out any money and they know right away. Logistics of closing the Seven Mile Bridge for more than two hours on race day to stage the run, then transporting all runners back by bus, requires the field to be capped at 1,500. Unless we accept all the runners, somebodys going to be disappointed, Sayer said. This is a tough spot for our volunteers. If we tried to take more and anything went wrong, we run the risk of losing the Bridge Run completely, she said. We cant give the [state Department of Transportation] a reason to turn us down.The Marathon Runners Club did insist on a process that allocated several hundred spots to Monroe County runners but those filled quickly, too, Sayer said.Run fills quicklyFrom Bridge Run,1A MARQUEZNEWS BRIEFSVisitFlorida:2011 tourism spikedPreliminary state estimates show about 86 million people visited Florida last year, a new record for the number of tourists and possibly a sign the worst of the states economic woes are over. VisitFlorida, the states official tourism marketing corporation, said the number of visitors in 2011 was up 4.4 percent over 2010, and above the 84.5 million visitors the state had in 2007. VisitFlorida also said travel-related employment rose to a near record high of 1.013 million, adding 38,000 jobs.The growth in tourism was driven by overseas visits, which increased 16.1 percent, the state said. A5.7 percent growth in Canadian visits put Canadian tourism at an all-time high. Also, it was a banner year for Florida residents vacationing in their own state, VisitFlorida said. Preliminary data from airports showed a nearly 12 percent increase in commercial air travel, as well. News Service of FloridaBill would tighten TANFAmeasure to require drug felons to undergo treatment before receiving temporary cash assistance passed a state House hurdle Tuesday on a party-line vote.Sponsored by Rep. Jimmie Smith (R-Inverness), the measure (HB 813) would allow felons who have not undergone treatment to designate someone else to collect funds from Temporary Aid to Needy Families, a federal program administered by the state. Following public testimony and debate, the bill passed 12-6.Sometimes all people need to do the right thing is a bit of encouragement, said Rep. Dennis Baxley (ROcala), who supported the measure, one of several recent efforts to keep federal tax dollars out of the hands of drug users. The bill would require applicants who have been convicted of felony drug possession or trafficking to certify they successfully completed an approved drug treatment program to be eligible for TANF benefits. Participation in Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, treatment programs widely accessed in prisons, would not qualify. The bill would allow an applicant to designate someone else to collect the temporary cash relief, a safeguard supporters say ensures that needy family members, including children, will still receive benefits.Critics countered that convicted drug felons do not always have a drug problem. They also noted that statesponsored drug treatment programs, the types that would satisfy the requirement, have long waiting lists and could not be accessed immediately regardless of the applicants need for assistance.In the end, they say the bill is supported not by data but by stereotypes. Smith has spent the past two years sponsoring measures to require applicants for federal assistance to show some proof that the money is not going to pay for drugs.

As we saw last year during a historically active tornado and severe weather season, this type of structure worked exceedingly well and produced a high level of service. The truth is that each National Weather Service office is staffed with on-site support technicians that are responsible for maintaining and restoring the agencys radars. The consolidation Mr. Miller is talking about is that there is a help line available to the support technicians. This help line has been in place since the deployment of the radar, which occurred more than 20 years ago. The people who manage the hotline have available to them a database of all of the problems encountered with the radar system, along with the most efficient manner to bring the problem to resolution. During the historic tornado event on April 27 that impacted Birmingham, Ala., it was the local onsite field technicians that returned the radar back to service, not the hotline service that Mr. Miller discusses. With regards to the information technology officer position being cut by NOAA, at numerous times during severe weather outbreaks, it has been the information technology officer that has stepped in to resolve and restore systems to service in a timely manner that has resulted in lives being saved. According to NOAAs National Weather Services own service assessments covering the historic 2011 tornado event, having an information technology officer on site during a severe weather outbreak is considered a best practice for weather forecast offices. Please correct me if I am mistaken, but there are codes of ethics for accuracy and standards for factual reporting which include fact checking and the issuance of corrections when errors are discovered. I hope that in the interest of accuracy, you will contact Mr. Miller for further clarification on this story. In addition, perhaps you would inquire as to whether NOAAwill be replacing the local technicians, who are actually responsible for the maintenance and oversight of the radar the National Weather Service utilizes to issue life saving warnings, with a help line. Mark Wilson Pearl, Miss.House Republicans back down over immunity dealEven gullible political optimists will have a hard time with the latest bill approved by the Florida House Judiciary Committee.The committee voted 13 to 5 Thursday to offer sweeping immunity absolute privilege they call it to legislators, former legislators and their staffs. Lawmakers hope to duck having to produce a document or testify in any civil case that has anything to do with lawmaking.Its no coincidence that the anonymously authored legislation materialized out of nowhere after a lawsuit was filed challenging new district maps. This bill smacks of an effort by some state lawmakers to avoid answering how they came up with strong Republican congressional districts in areas where the number of GOPvoters has declined. Democrats, the League of Women Voters, Common Cause and National Council of La Raza are fighting back against Republican districts that were strengthened despite declining numbers. Florida voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment that says districts cant be deliberately carved out to protect an incumbent, and the organizations want to question lawmakers to find out what went on behind the scenes. They deserve answers, but this law would keep them and Florida voters in the dark. Immunity itself is not unprecedented. Florida legislators have long enjoyed federal protections from civil suits. Legislators need to be able to do their jobs without being encumbered by frivolous grievances aimed at impeding government. Suddenly, some Republicans fear that the federal protection that suited just fine for decades is just not enough. Under this bill, judges would no longer be able to use their discretion to determine when legislators should be ordered to divulge information. The Florida League of Women Voters says the proposed law takes the smoke-filled rooms of state government and puts a clear billboard across the door: Citizens May Not Enter. The league asserts that the bill would create a blanket privilege that would preclude all inquiries, including proper ones. Thats because this dangerous legislation is too sweeping. Although it offers language saying public records remain public, it also says legislators wont be obligated to produce any. Worse still, a subpoenaed staff member or former staff would have to ask a legislator permission to testify. Where does that leave potential whistleblowers who witness wrongdoing? Gagged. It also leaves both the publics right to know and the First Amendment in peril.Redistricting lawsuits are expected. But that doesnt mean voters do not deserve to know how, for example, the new map managed to give Rep. Mario Diaz Balart 24,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats, even though in the last decade, his partys majority in that district shrank dramatically. Legislators should be willing to explain that in public and in court. This law simply went too far. Under pressure from Senate GOPleaders, the House Judiciary Committee now appears to be backing off support for the legislation as it should.Businesses come throughCoral Shores High School would like to say thank you to Old Tavernier Restaurant owner Ilias Kofinas and Robert B. Morgan II of the Morgan Insurance Group, who joined forces and hosted an exciting fundraising event featuring race-car simulators at the Old Tavernier Restaurant to benefit Coral Shores programs. The event included a car show, great food and music. Many local merchants donated items for a silent auction. Proceeds from this event totaled $5,000, with the money being distributed as $2,000 to the culinary program, $1,000 for the cheerleaders, $1,000 for the band and $1,000 for the wrestling team. Additional funds were donated and the Friends of Coral Shores account was also opened. This account will be used for special funding needs schoolwide. We appreciate these generous donations from two great Upper Keys businesses.

What a great success it was; $2,150 was raised. All proceeds from the dinner were donated plus all gratuities, along with the many donations that were contributed. I want to thank the many people who came out and enjoyed the food. But this could not have happened without all the help I got from my many friends who gave their time and donations to make this event as good as it gets. Thank you to the waitress girls Di, Lisa, Scoop and Debbie; the margarita girls Lani and Phyllis; and the rest of us: Kim, Denise, Lily, Sharon, Regina, Debbie Struyf (great cakes) and the great dishwashers who cleaned up the big mess, Bill and Chris. May one day the word cancer be obsolete. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Suzy Curry MarathonChoose the right guyThis guy and that guy these guys have ambitions to become the right guy and challenge for the presidency, believed to be our guy. Today, our guy is the known guy: A left -leaning, liberal progressive whose policies support his beliefs in central planning, Keynesian economics, government as the solution to all problem, and a government that cannot be too big, too expensive or too invasive. Nonetheless, the known guy is reigning and holder of the incumbents belt. For better the devil that you know, the incumbent is considered by many as safe. Advantage: Known guy. The right guy will come from the ranks of the contenders through a painful vetting and elimination process that does nothing but discourage anyone from running for so much as dog catcher. Right guy is a right-leaning conservative, fiscally responsible type who believes the size, scope and cost of government is the problem, not the solution. The right guy believes in lower taxes, adherence to the Constitution, less government, free-market capitalism and debt reduction. Still, he will be the challenger and must soundly beat the incumbent to lay claim as our guy. Known guy vs. right guy. Does it really matter their names or political parties? Does it really matter which guy is taller, darker, more handsome, older, younger and articulate, likes a teleprompter when speaking, gets emotional, is religious, is not religious, has been married before, has been married to only one woman and is liked by his kids? The quantifiable track record of actions and policies speak louder than pandering and rhetoric. One guy will be sworn in as our guy in January 2013. Let us make sure he is the right guy. Jim Pettorini Key Colony BeachEntire group suesRe: The article in the Feb. 18 Keynoter about the county joining the No Name Key commercial-electricity appeal: It is misleading to only say that there are five No Name residents bringing the lawsuit. The five are the officers of the Solar Community Organization and represent all the members. Deb Curlee Cudjoe Key Health shift off?It appears Floridas 67 counties might not be taking on thousands of state Department of Health workers after all.The House Appropriations Committee was expected to hear an amendment Tuesday to House bill 1263, which is aimed at reorganizing DOH.The amendment would revoke a controversial shift of thousands of state jobs to the counties. For Monroe, that would mean 90 full-time employees and another five part-time workers.State Rep. Ron Saunders, the House Democratic minority leader from Key West, sits on the Appropriations Committee. He told the Keynoter hes unclear whether the amendment would be heard.I know the bill is on there. I dont know if the amendment is because it hasnt been pre-filed, he said. The bill was sponsored by state Rep. Matt Hudson of Naples, and he filed the amendment late Monday, according to the News Service of Florida.County Health Department Administrator Bob Eadie told the Keynoter its unclear what the shift in jobs if it happens could mean to the county.The finances hadnt been worked out, so you really dont know. You have 90 employees that all of a sudden youve got to take from one employment system and put them in another, he said. Does the county have the ability to absorb that number of employees? Anything could be done; the issue is if you can do it the right way. Eadie has asked for sizable increases from Monroe County in each of the last two budget cycles due to funding cuts at the state level. This year, the county is covering $939,000 of the departments $7.25 million budget. The county doled out $817,247 in fiscal year 201011, $623,720 in 2009-10 and $510,720 in 2008-09. We have a good working relationship with the county, so weve been really fortunate with the commissioners understanding and supporting public health in a big way, Eadie said. Eadie said the department received $2 million from the state, and that the rest of the budget is generated through fees, Medicare and Medicaid billing and grants. County Administrator Roman Gastesi briefed the County Commission last Wednesday on the status of the bill. He acknowledged shifting jobs might be practical, but raised concern with the timing. The bill says decentralization would take effect in January 2014. According to the News Service of Florida, the companion Senate Bill (1824) does not include shifting jobs from the state.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTATE LEGISLATURECity pitches projectsThe Key West City Commission this evening will consider how to divvy up $720,000 in special tax revenue, considering five different applications, two of which are city-led construction projects meant to beautify the Key West Bight area. The Caroline Street Corridor Tax Increment Fund, the source of the available funding, raises money every year for allocation into infrastructure projects for the Old Town neighborhood, including the neighboring bight. Beginning in 1996, city officials created the Community Redevelopment Agency to oversee the Key West Bight, Caroline Street Corridor, Trumbo Road and on the other side of town parts of Bahama Village that had all were declared blighted. With that designation, 1996 became the baseline. Any tax revenue generated based on the increase in property values above that baseline is collected and then reinvested in the area through the TIF. The first city request is for $720,000 to do a major overhaul of the road, sidewalks and stormwater drainage system on Caroline and Trumbo roads.The next asks for $68,000 to construct a roundabout at the end of William Street; thats just one piece of a larger $1 million plan called the Key West Bight Common Area Enhancement Plan, based on a scheme by architect Michael Ingram that has the area retain its seafaring heritage while creating focal points to attract visitors by way of four plazas at the termini of Greene, William, Margaret and Grinnell streets.The third city request, in a departure from the brickand-mortar theme, contemplates spending $79,000 to have a full-time bicycle or foot patrol police officer assigned to the bight, a popular area for homeless and panhandlers. The other two requests come from the nonprofit Habitat for Humanity of Key West and the Lower Keys and the Conch Harbor Retail Center, an association of private businesses. The former wants $50,000 to repair elder housing thats in the affected area; the latter wants $146,000 to improve its privately owned stretch of harbor walk, which adjoins parts owned by the city, in the manner spelled out in the enhancement plan. Commissioners meet at 6 tonight at Old City Hall on Greene Street.Theres $700K available in TIF moneyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST

Monroe Service Co. State Certified ContractorPaul 797-1123 Phil 7973333Kohler.or.paul@gmail.com Monroe282@gmail.com Scott OKs redistrictingWith a Florida redistricting plan for congressional districts signed Thursday by Gov. Rick Scott, the debate moves to the courts. U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen (R-District 18), who has represented the Florida Keys as part of her district for the past decade, would no longer be on the Monroe County ballot if the plan stands as written. U.S. Rep. David Rivera, a first-term Republican congressman, now holds the seat for the area that would comprise the new District 26, which includes Monroe County. Rivera had not filed for re-election at press time Tuesday. Ros-Lehtinen has said she would like to retain the Keys in her district since Monroe County shares many coastal-community issues with eastern MiamiDade County. The new map places her in a new District 27, based in Miami. The clock has started ticking. Now the lawyers are doing their thing, said attorney Dan Gelber, a former state senator working with the Fair Districts Florida organization.Soon after the Legislature approved the new plan for 27 congressional seats (two more seats than currently exist) on Feb. 9, a coalition including the League of Women Voters, Common Cause Florida and the National Council of La Raza sued in Leon County Circuit Court.The suit contends state lawmakers failed to follow dictates in two Florida Constitution amendments on fair voting passed by voters in 2010. The Legislatures congressional plan is filled with unconstitutional political gerrymanders intended to favor one political party and certain incumbents, while disfavoring the other political party and other incumbents, the suit alleges.The Legislatures failed attempt to challenge the amendments in court shows desperate attempts by elected officials to retain power to which they have grown accustomed, and reflect politicianspreference for protecting their own political futures over the expressed wishes of their constituents, the suit says.On the congressional map, there likely will be some legal discovery that occurs, said Gelber. Its probably a couple of months away from being resolved.Districts that receive final approval will be used this year and until after the 2020 Census. The new District 26 would cover 696,345 people living in western Miami-Dade County and Monroe County.The lawsuit filed by the voterscoalition does not pinpoint any specific problems in South Florida, but any boundary changes mandated upstate could affect the proposed South Florida districts.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .Coalition says gerrymandering still an issuePOLITICS RIVERA ROS-LEHTINENBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Fields now 5 for School BoardWith the addition last week of former Key West High School Principal John Welsh of Big Coppitt Key, there are now five candidates vying for the District 3 Monroe County School Board seat. Conspicuously absent from the packed field is twoterm incumbent Duncan Mathewson, who hasnt publicly stated his plans or returned phone calls seeking comment. Welsh, who worked for the School District for 35 years until his retirement in 2010, said if elected, hed focus on continued student achievement despite bleak fiscal forecasts. I want to fill the role of School Board member by being a thoughtful, unbiased and independent decision maker, Welsh said.The School District is facing challenging financial times, he continued. All decisions and policies have to be made in the best interest of students while keeping a keen eye on fiscal responsibility.Welsh, 64, has a masters degree in school administration and supervision from Nova Southeast University in Broward County and a bachelors in education from the College of New Jersey. He served as Key West High principal from 2002-10 and before that as an assistant principal at both Key West High and Sugarloaf School.Born in Philadelphia, Welsh moved to the Keys in 1975 after a stint in the U.S. Army, serving in Vietnam until his honorable discharge in 1973.I look at the academics first because thats my background, he said. I look at the fiscal responsibility, then I look at general commitments I want to make. The primary election is set for Aug. 14, with a Nov. 6 runoff if needed. Welsh joins already filed candidates Michael Cunningham of Ramrod Key.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comELECTION 2012Wardlow: Move on firehouseSince his election in 2009, Key West City Commissioner Billy Wardlow has pushed with unwavering focus for construction of a new Old Town fire station at 525 Angela St. despite constantly evolving plans for developing a new city hall on the site. Plans to rebuild city hall on Angela have been shelved pending a final agreement with the Monroe County School Board transferring Glynn Archer Elementary School to the city for rehabilitation as administrative office space. Tonight, the commission is set to select one of three firehouse design schemes proposed by architect Michael Ingram and finally move forward on the fire station, while staff continues to negotiate for Glynn Archer. However, as with almost any development or construction in the Southernmost City, there are some that want to hold off on the project. Richard Tallmadge, an outspoken city watchdog and member of the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board, wants to delay a decision on the fire station until the Glynn Archer deal is sealed. Thats still an opportunity that needs to happen, he said of the property transfer. What were trying to do is say, Hey, listen. Lets not make any decisions in haste here. There are other opportunities to look at this parcel that would include the fire station as a very, very central piece of the puzzle. But if we make a decision in haste, were committing to something that we could do a better job on. We could make a more thoughtful choice if we table this for another 60 days. Im ready to go ahead, said Wardlow, a former fire chief Hopefully Ill get the support and we can start something. The City Commission meets tonight at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST WELCH

Sterling had a very good tournament, especially for his first time going to state after only two years of wrestling, Coral Shores assistant coach Joe Biondoletti said. It turned out to be a very tough weight class. Hill, a junior, was pinned in the first round of his 16-man finals bracket by Will Collier of Bolles, but advanced in the consolation bracket by pinning Thomas Pearman of Ridgewood. A10-5 loss to Alex Probosco of McKeel Academy ended Hills stay at the two-day tournament in Lakeland. Biondoletti endorsed Key West coach Chaz Jimenenz for state coach of the year honors. To go up there from a public school and get a first and second against all these private-school programs says a lot, said Biondoletti, a 1986 state champion.Bolles wrestler ends season of HurricaneCORAL SHORES WRESTLINGLlama crowned state champSenior Max Llama won the 145-pound class at last weekends 1Astate wrestling meet at the Lakeland Center becoming only the second Conch to win a state title, joining Ralph Major, who won in 2008. In Saturdays championship final, Llama defeated Dryden Dennis of Northside Christian School of St. Petersburg by a 3-0 decision to complete a 4-0 tournament and end the season 45-2. Two other Conchs won medals St. Pierre Anilus, who finished second in the 182-pound class, and 152pound Andrew Guieb, who was sixth. Key West finished eighth out of 77 teams. Llama, who was third at last years state meet, went into the match with Dennis knowing it would be the last of his high-school career. The biggest challenge was overcoming the pressure, he said, but having been there before, I knew what I had to do. What he had to do was get a takedown, which is what he did late in the first period. I felt I had the match after that, Llama said. I was more relaxed. When it was over, he jumped on his coach, Chaz Jimenez, in celebration. It was an overwhelming feeling, he said. On Monday, Jimenez recalled how Llama, as a 93pound freshman, loved basketball more than wrestling. But the coach immediately recognized the youngsters talent on the mat. I told his dad, Make sure your son stays with me because he can be special, Jimenez said. Once he started wrestling and winning, it was all over. Its addictive. Llama had to persevere this season in the aftermath of the major shoulder surgery he had last summer. I had my doubts for a while, but Im glad it all worked out, he said. Its a relief to finally accomplish what Ive worked for. Just missing a state title was Anilus, who lost, 9-7, to Jupiter Christians Jesse Stephanos in the championship final. It was the third loss to Stephanos this season for Anilus, who was 3-1 last weekend and finished 44-6. Hes been wrestling on the varsity since the sixth grade, Jimenez said of Stephanos. St. Pierre has been wrestling two and a half years. Guieb (43-9) had a chance to finish higher but lost his last two matches in the wrestle-backs. Two other Conchs, 120pound Daniel Laguna, and 138-pound Andrew Calderwood, lost their opening two matches on Friday and didnt advance.He takes down Dennis of NorthsideBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST WRESTLINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comDestination: The reefLife moves pretty fast. If you dont stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. If Ferris Bueller took a day off in the Florida Keys this week, hed head to the reef for some outstanding fishing. The yellowtail snapper bite just keeps on keeping on with lots of fish in the 15to 18-inch range, plus a smattering of big flags. There are some muttons mixed in along with plenty of kingfish on the reef edge. The patch reefs are also offering up an abundance of yellowtails and muttons with the addition of large mangroves. And the Spanish and cero mackerel join the kings here. Amberjack reign supreme on the wrecks, and there are 12to 15-pound muttons to bring home for dinner. Sailfishing has been slow all winter with only a few caught here and there. However, there are still some dolphin and wahoo around and a few scattered reports of blackfin tuna, mostly toward Key West. The channel humps are producing a wide variety of snapper and hogfish plus grouper to tease you. Remember, all grouper must be released as the season is closed until May 1. Theres also a very good showing of 15to 20-pound king and good size Spanish mackerel on the humps. As for the bay fishing, the mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel are still biting well.The weeks bestCapt. Bob Crockett and mate Capt. Blaine Lemm, of Finnz-Up Charters at the Blackfin Resort and Marina in Marathon, had Benny and Elizabeth Johonsen, from Sweden, on board for catch and release fishing for grouper, dolphin, blackfin tuna, barracuda and yellowtail and mangrove snapper. Capt. Larry Bell with mate Alex Bell, of Blue Magic Charters, fished two different groups from New York City. The first caught a 25-pound cobia plus mangrove snapper, jack crevalle, blue fish and released grouper in the bay. The second group fished Oceanside for amberjack, kingfish and dolphin. The boats at the Seven Mile Marina have been busy too. Capt. Jeff Knapp, of Beckoning Charters, reports large tarpon action on the outgoing tide at the Seven Mile Bridge. Floating lures fished slow in the dark are working. Capt. Bob Brown, of Sundance Sportfishing, fished groups from Bonita Springs and Ohio. They caught nice yellowtail and big mangrove snapper along with king and cero mackerel, throw-back grouper, jack crevalle, blue fish and blue runners. The SeaSquared saw several anglers from the Northeast last week plus groups from Minnesota and New Mexico. Depending on the wind, we fished in Hawk Channel, on the patches and the reef itself. Lots of fun-catching and good-eating fish came back to the dock, includinghogfish, sheepshead, yellowtail and mangrove snapper, king and Spanish mackerel and porgy. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters at the dock at Turtle Kraals in Key West, put his anglers on tarpon in the inner harbor with sharks, snapper and mackerel mixed in. On the reef, they caught yellowtails, big mangroves and bonitos, while in Hawk Channel the kingfish were biting well. Mottice found cobia and big mangroves on the Gulf wrecks.Fishing seminarThe Marathon Boat Yard Marine Center continues its 2012 bi-weekly seminar series on Thursday. I will be the featured speaker and will share my expertise on fishing the Hawk Channel humps. The program runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and they serve free popcorn and soda.

The Dolphins (3-0) beat Sheridan Hills a state playoff team a year ago on Friday, 7-3, before dominating American Prep on Saturday, 13-0. Freshman Kyle Pierce impressed on the mound for the Dolphins, relieving starter Patrick Ryan and shutting down the Sharks over the final 5.2 innings. Ryan struggled a bit, surrendering two runs on one hit, two walks, a hit batsman, and two strikeouts. Coach Luis Leal said he didnt want to take any chances and allow Sheridan a big inning. At the point I took him out, the score was 3-2 and he had bases loaded and we didnt want to fall behind against a good team, he said. Pierce struck out one batter and got another to pop up to end the threat. He gave up one unearned run and struck out eight batters, while walking one and allowing only three hits. The most impressive part was the first [four-plus innings] he didnt have his best stuff. We were relying on him hitting with the fastball, moving it up and down. Finally in the seventh inning he adjusted and got his curve ball working and had two strikeouts, Leal said. The Dolphins struck first with three runs in the top of the first inning Friday. Carlos OFarrill singled and stole second base. Yoniel Esquirol followed with a single and Drew Thornbrugh walked to load the bases. Joey Gonzalez singled and knocked in OFarrill and Esquirol, and P.J. Palmer singled to score Thornbrugh to make it 3-0. The Sharks answered back with two in the bottom of the first, and the Dolphins led just 4-3 after five innings. In the sixth inning, Ariel Rodriguez and Sean Roussin led off with walks and were sacrificed along by Ian Almodovar. Esquirol later singled to knock in Rodriguez and OFarrill scored on a wild pitch to make it a 6-3 game. OFarrill was 2-for-4 at the plate Friday with two runs scored and two stolen bases. Esquirol was 2-for-4 with one RBI, a run scored and three stolen bases, Thornbrugh was 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored, and GonzalezBaseball team tops Sheridan, American PrepBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLSee Dolphins,2B

Jumping out to an early lead, we werent playing as nervous as we have in the past, coach Andrea Murphy said. We did a much better job of communicating. One of our big things is talking between every pitch to keepeveryone in the game and that was a nice improvement.The Dolphins started the game off with three straight outs in the first inning, but exploded for 15 runs over the next two innings. Everyone was pretty anxious to hit and they got out in front of the pitcher, but in the second and third innings we made the adjustments, she said.

George F. Will When it comes to political bonafides on the conservative front, it doesnt get much better than George Wills endorsement on your book. Just ask Islamorada resident Elizabeth Price Foley, whose newest book, The Tea Party, Three Principles, has just been published. Foley, a law professor at Florida International University, teaches constitutional and health-care law, and bioethics. Shes also executive director of the Institute for Justice Florida Chapter, which she describes as a nonprofit public-interest law firm. Her previous books have included The Law of Life & Death (Harvard University Press 2011) and Liberty for All: Reclaiming Individual Privacy in a New Era of Public Morality (Yale University Press 2006). Cambridge University Press is the publisher for her newest book, scheduled for release right before Super Tuesday, March 6. The Tea Party, Three Principlesoffers a detailed analysis of the movements deeply-felt constitutional concerns, according to Cambridge University Press, adding challenging distortions and stereotypes, this fair, intelligent assessment illuminates the principles that drive the movement and reveals how they might shape the future of the country. Texas congressman Ron Paul, who is running for president, has praised the book as n important work on the constitutional basis for the agenda of the Tea Party movement. Randy Barnett, a professor of constitutional law at Georgetown Law Center, added this testimonial on the book jacket: Elizabeth Price Foley clearly identifies and defends the three basic principles that unite the Tea Party movement, all stemming from its commitment to our written Constitution.

Mysteriously, however, the nesting population of the threatened white-crowned pigeon has not. Instead the numbers of these unusual pigeons remains low, even after six years.

I cant begin to tell you how happy and proud Mariners is to be able to provide chemotherapy right here in our community, said Rick Freeburg, Mariners CEO. We have prepared the entire oncology services suite with our patients in mind, providing a comfortable environment where they can receive effective, compassionate care close to home rather that traveling to Miami several times a week for care. This is a time when rest and comfort are needed rather than making the draining drive to Miami. Jean Santaguida, an advanced practice nurse, will head the oncology services nursing team. Team members are registered nurses who participated in an intensive national oncology chemotherapy and biotherapy course on the most up-to-date chemotherapy and biotherapy administration procedures, types of chemotherapy as well as symptom and pain management. Advance Medical Specialties assisted Mariners Hospital in developing the medical oncology services and will continue to be affiliated with the program.
