WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,FEBRUARY 29,2012 VOLUME 59,NO.17 25 CENTS Picnic time The Truman Waterfront in Key West,mostly dormant since the U.S.Navy gave it to the city, is finally getting some amenities.Story, 3A Additional charge A Grassy Key teenager is charged with a second residential break-in on the island where he lives. Story, 6ARedistricting chaos sets inAsearch on the states election website this week shows six candidates have filed to run for a congressional seat to represent Monroe County.But the actual number, as of press time Tuesday, appears to be two. Four of the declared candidates identified in the state Division of Elections roster for the Monroe County congressional seat intend to run for new districts based in Miami which have not been affirmed by the courts.This illustrates that for the next several weeks or months, congressional candidates are caught in a state of flux as the once-a-decade redistricting process takes shape.It is kind of confusing since the new districts are not confirmed yet, said Chris Cate, a Division of Elections spokesman. Congressional candidates legally can declare for any district in their home state, but most choose the district where they live. As the redistricting process moves forward, some have declared for the district as currently defined and named. Others declared for districts that have been passed by the Florida Legislature but not yet received legal confirmation.Based on census numbers, the state gains two new seats increasing Floridas House delegation to 27 this year. The state Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott have signed off on a congressional map with new district boundaries and new district identification numbers. The map is being challenged in court and is not yet official. With the litigation ongoing, its not definite those district boundaries will be the final ones, Cate said. As for the Monroe County seat, Dorals U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-District 21) filed papers Feb. 22 with the state to campaign in District 25. The existing District 25 seat is held by U.S. Rep.U.S. House candidates start to file, but districts are a guessing gamePOLITICSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Wrecked plane pulled from waterThe Cessna 172S Skyhawk that crashed Thursday off Key West, killing two Poland residents, was recovered Saturday two miles west of the Sunset Marina.Pilot Wojciech Korjat, 31, and passenger Sebastian Majewski, 32, had rented the 2003 airplane from Dean and Blaylock Inc. at Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport a few weeks before. The Florida Highway Patrol says the plane, tail No. N53589, took off from Key West International Airport sometime after 9 p.m. Thursday after the pair bought 12 gallons of fuel. Boaters found the wreckage and one of the bodies about 12:30 p.m. Friday. The second body was found about two hours later about 1.3 miles from the crash site. The National Transportation Safety Administration is the lead investigator on the case, and it could be months before the agency determines why the plane, totaled with a value of $170,000, went down.TowBoatUS Big Pine Key owner Kevin Freestone told the Keynoter recovery of the aircraft started at 6 a.m. and ended with his crew offloading remnants of the plane around 6:30 p.m. on Key Haven. Freestone said Anchor Towing took possession of the plane and is storing it on its Big Coppitt property.This was the fifth plane crash in the Keys since September. In December, a red and yellow biplane from Conch Air Corp., a sightseeing operation out of Florida Keys Marathon Airport, crashed in waters off Marathon. No one was injured. In November, a twinengine Cessna Citation 550 carrying five people from Fort Lauderdale skidded off the runway at Key West International Airport and crashed in the runways crash zone. No one was hurt. Also in November, a Gulfstream 150 carrying Rick Hendrick, owner of NASCARs Hendrick Motorsports, crashed in the Key West crash zone when its brakes failed. Hendrick broke four ribs and a shoulder. In September, the pilot of a small Rockwell Commander crashed on takeoff from Key West and skidded into the crash zone. Two Poland residents die in the crashBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comLOWER KEYSSee Redistrict,2ASearch for schools chief is underwayMeeting in a workshop Monday in Key West, the Monroe County School Board set some parameters for how it will proceed with a superintendent search and signaled that a consultant would be hired to help with the process. Superintendent Jesus Jaras gubernatorial appointment as Keys schools chief expires in January 2013. In December, he asked board members to consider giving him a multi-year extension. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Jara, who earns $135,000 annually, to replace Joseph Burke, himself appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009 (Burke left last summer to head Lee County schools in Southwest Florida). Burke replaced the ousted Randy Acevedo when Acevedo was charged with felony misconduct. Acevedo was the Keys last elected superintendent; voters have since decided to let the School Board hire the islandstop public schools official. With that fundamental change, approved in 2010 via countywide referendum, board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths said came the understanding that a national search would follow. When the voters changed the system in 2010, he said, I think there was an expectation we were going to do it in the best possible way. I think there was an expectation, I believe, for us to do a national search.

Finalization of the deal is awaiting contract language; Academica charges $450 per student, although Collegiate School Board Chairman Todd German said collection is more than a year away. Theyre going to have to donate their services through the end of this year and a good part of next year, he said. The school has no excess money to pay them. Academica is doing this as theyve done with a number of schools in the past they help schools that are struggling and make them into something special. Founded in 1999, Academica is run by brothers Fernando and Ignacio Zulueta. The company operates more than 60 schools in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, as well as schools in California, Texas, Nevada, Utah and Georgia. Included in Academicas holdings are four prominent South Florida school chains: The Mater Academies, the Somerset Academies, the Doral Academies and Pinecrest Academies.Collegiate has struggled in its first yearBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee School,3ASee Superintendent,3A The Cessna 172S Skyhawk is pulled from the water Saturday.Its now at Anchor Towing on Big Coppitt Key while federal investigators try to determine why the aircraft went down off Key West.Photo courtesy TOWBOATUS/BIG PINE KEY Wins and lossesOn the baseball field, Marathon splits two,Coral Shores gets a victory and the Conchs of Key West fall short.Stories, 1BHurricanes sweepBoth the boys and girls of Coral Shores High are victorious on the lacrosse field.Story, 2B

But DiazBalart does not intend to challenge Rivera. Under the redistricting plan, Rivera would represent Monroe County as part of a new District 26 that covers the Keys and western Miami-Dade. Congressman DiazBalart has announced he is running for Floridas new 25th congressional District, which does not include Monroe County, said Ruth Guerra, a Diaz-Balart spokeswoman. The new District 25 covers northwest Miami-Dade, southwest Broward County and large tracts of Collier and Hendry counties. U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, Monroe Countys congresswoman for the past decade in District 18, lives in the new District 27 in Miami. District 27 does not include Monroe County. At this point, [redistricting] is pretty much where its always been this far into it, said Joyce Griffin, Monroe Countys deputy supervisor of elections. Its always worked itself out in the past. There are mechanisms in place and its still early. The Division of Elections still shows RosLehtinens current District 18 under Monroe Countys list of state races. Of four candidates who have filed District 18 papers, only Jose F. Peixoto, a Key Largo independent, appears to live within the new District 26. Peixoto said Monday he will run for the seat that covers Monroe County. Two other District 18 candidates independent Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins of Homestead and Republican Marcus Rivchin Jr. of Miami said Friday they will challenge Ros-Lehtinen. Justin L. Sternad, a hotel executive living in Cutler Bay, has filed as a Democrat in District 25. Sternad said Friday he expects to run in the new District 26, which includes the Keys. Rivera had not filed for re-election at press time Tuesday. Candidates have until June 8 to file and qualify for election in Floridas congressional races. The first party primary is slated for Aug. 14.Confusion reignsFrom Redistrict,1ACops: Man solicited girl on FacebookA19-year-old Key Largo man was arrested Monday for allegedly soliciting sex with a 14-year-old girl on Facebook, and subsequently having sex with her. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office charged Jorge Bravo-Machuca with lewd and lascivious acts on a minor and using a computer to solicit a minor, both felonies. Detective Daniel Mehler began investigating in June when the girls father discovered Bravo was sending his daughter lewd communications on her Facebook account, says Deputy Becky Herrin. The father printed out the conversations and gave them to Mehler, who questioned the girl. Herrin said she admitted dating Bravo and that the two planned to have sex.In November 2011, the father reported his daughter snuck out of their house after attending a homecoming dance; at that point, she admitted to having sex with Bravo multiple times, both after the dance and at other times, Herrin said. She said Bravo told her he was 17 years old.Bravo-Machucas bond was set at $25,000.Hes charged with pair of felony countsCRIME FRONT BRAVO-MACHUCA Poll-and-troll up for reviewAyear after the expansive and experimental poleand-troll fishing area at Snake Bight took effect, Everglades National Park managers want to hear from anglers and boaters on how you think its working. Park staff holds two sessions Monday in Homestead and March 8 in Key Largo to provide updates and take suggestions on the 9,400-acre, nomotor zone in Florida Bay, east of the parks Flamingo Visitor Center. If people want better access to Snake Bight, its critical that they show up, Islamorada fisherman Jim Trice said. Trice heads the Alternative E Working Group, which advocated for a poleand-troll zone as a test area for what could be management concepts for Florida Bay waters within Everglades National Park. Its flawed as it exists, Trice said this week. They closed a huge body of water by not allowing the ingress that we recommended. In the Snake Bight zone, boaters can use combustion engines to travel on plane in Tin Can Channel and Snake Bight Channel, and move at slow speed through Jimmies Lake. Elsewhere, boats must travel by electric trolling motors or flats push poles to reduce prop scarring on the shallow flats and seagrasses.You can fish the edges but you cant get in and out of Snake Bight anymore, Trice said. They didnt take our advice on ingress and egress from Porpoise Point on the east side of the water body. Richard Grathwohl of the Marathon Guides Association said the pole-and-troll zone has reduced conflicts between speeding boaters and flats anglers, and helped the shallow ecosystem.Nobodys getting blasted there like it used to be, Grathwohl said. It helps the environment, which is our economic engine. Trice and Grathwohl both lauded the parks commitment to adaptive management altering rules to deal with problems or unexpected consequences. Its time to fine-tune the plan so we can build on what weve learned and make the area fishable again, Trice said. Everything needs to be fine-tuned, Grathwohl said. Its good that we dont have to wait five years to make a change to something that we can live with.At the upcoming sessions, people can comment on the areas boundaries, signs, needed changes and how its working, Kimball said.

They were packed into the same white plastic buckets in which they were brought to the U.S. by Tampa-based Odyssey Marine Exploration in May 2007.Odyssey made an international splash when it discovered the wreck, believed to be the Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes off Portugals Atlantic coast near the Straits of Gibraltar. At the time, the coins were estimated to be worth as much as $500 million to collectors, which would have made it the richest shipwreck haul in history. Odyssey had argued that as the finder, it was entitled to all or most of the treasure. The Spanish government filed a claim in U.S. District Court soon after the coins were flown back to Tampa, contending it never relinquished ownership of the ship or its contents.Odyssey lost every round in federal courts trying to hold on to the treasure.Tampa firm lost claim of ownershipAssociated PressTREASURE HUNTINGGentile to get more financial controlAsked to respond to state audit findings that prompted School Board Chairman John Dick to call for heads to roll, Superintendent Jesus Jara demurred on firings but said he would ask the board to give the chief internal auditor a more central role in handling School District finances. Jara said hed make that request of the Monroe County School Board at a meeting that began after press time Tuesday at Marathon High School. District finances are now the territory of Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer. Jara said he would ask board members to direct Ken Gentile, who works as the districts internal auditor at the boards discretion, to start working in a compliance role as part of the administration. I think its premature to say theres going to be some personnel changes, Jara said. Friday, the state Auditor Generals Office released its findings of the districts financial health for the school year that ended June 30, 2011. State staff identified 15 problems, including one material weakness related to the districts annual financial report. Thats down from 16 findings in the previous year, including the same material weakness. One area of a repeat finding is in food service. In that department, the district did not use the sales reported by the point-ofsales [computer] system to record food service revenue, meaning if there was a loss in collections, itd be difficult to assign responsibility, according to the audit. This is the third year with the food service, Jara said. Im disappointed. It seems like it should be an easy fix ... but if Im not satisfied with what we have, then we need to look at it. Were going to respond to the audit, Jara said. We have, in some cases, already put some procedures in place. What Im going to commit to the board is that all of these will be fixed by the end of the fiscal year, which is June 30. Jara has until late March to respond to the state. From there, his responses will be integrated into a final audit report that will be released by the state.Recommendation comes following damning auditBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSInsurance rewrite no sure thingAplan aimed at reducing costs in no-fault automobile insurance passed a state House panel Friday after it was substantially amended to accommodate some private physician concerns while holding the line on a cap of attorney fees. Following more than an hour of testimony and debate, the House Economic Affairs Committee passed HB 119, a significant rewrite of which was released late Thursday. The measure, backers say, is an attempt to rein in costs of personal injury protection, or PIP, insurance, a fraud-riddled system that costs policyholders $1 billion a year in higher premiums.Like the original House proposal, the new bill would continue to require that true emergencies be treated at emergency rooms or hospitalrun clinics within 72 hours of an accident, the House sponsor told the panel Friday.But unlike previous versions, the bill does not prohibit patients from seeking medical attention from private physicians, an earlier restriction opposed by the Florida Medical Association. Under the new version, patients could go to the physician of their choice for up to $1,500 in treatment as long as they began treatment within 72 hours. Patients needing more intensive treatment would still be required to go to an emergency room to collect benefits up to the $10,000 PIPcap.But with two weeks left in the 2012 session, the House and Senate remain far apart and even though it is a priority for Gov. Rick Scott, there may not be enough time to pass the bill.I dont know whether theyll be able to bring the House and Senate positions together before the end of session, said House Speaker Dean Cannon. But Im not contemplating any special session on that issue at this time.Business groups applauded the House version, which goes further than the Senate plan to restrict physician access and attorney fees. The Senate plan, SB 1860, has neither attorney caps nor access restrictions. The bill has also garnered the support of the Office of Insurance Regulation.It would OK no restriction on private docsBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of FloridaSTATE LEGISLATUREModel changes evacuationThe new state Department of Emergency Management hurricane evacuation model for the Keys underwent a second round of vetting Monday in Key West.State Department of Economic Opportunity officials hosted the meeting with local and state officials. A large amount of time was spent answering technical concerns raised by the city of Key West, Upper Keys resident John Hammerstrom from the Tavernier Community Association and others. As an Area of Critical State Concern, the state oversees development in the Keys. Its guided by, among other things, the ability to evacuate tourists and residents when a serious hurricane threatens the island chain. One concern addressed on several occasions is that new Emergency Management model as opposed to the previous so-called Miller model bulks hotel and motel guests in with permanent mobile-home residents in phased evacuation scenarios.I have a problem with people in mobile homes being considered anything but permanent residents, Monroe County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said. Were asking our workforce to leave first and thats going to leave a lot of site-built homeowners, quite frankly, up the creek.Rebecca Jetton, Area of Critical State Concern administrator for DEO, defended the model. She said the state is dancing on a ledge between ensuring public safety and allowing for future land development. It is the best software we have access to. The information we have is the best available data. It isnt a perfect world, Jetton said. County Emergency Management Director Irene Toner urged the state to consider mainland areas being in the forecast cone. You cannot put our residents in a position where they couldnt get past the middle of the [18-Mile] Stretch because [MiamiDade and Broward residents] jammed up the turnpike. Any decision we make is based on the regional effect also, she said. Steve McBride, Naval Air Station Key West emergency manager, started the meeting off detailing U.S. Navy policy for hurricane evacuation. He explained the base has a five-phase plan in place starting 96 hours from a storms expected landfall. The way we operate is we have a condition of readiness for the onset of any destructive force winds, he said. The numbers that we have are 4,000 personnel and 2,025 vehicles. Thats what we anticipate hitting the road when we leave out. Brian Wolshon, an engineering professor at Louisiana State University, spoke about U.S. 1 capacity and said residents typically wait until early morning to evacuate. Traffic data shows that people dont evacuate at 11 [p.m.]. They wait until predawn hours. That is when the traffic volumes start dramatically increasing. Those volumes will sustain during the day. If theres enough time, theyll pick up the next morning, he said.

The Monroe and Nassau county school districts are the only two of 67 statewide that are not members of the association. Annual dues are $15,000.Board members expressed a desire to have Blanton conduct their search, meaning the dues would have to be paid, plus up to $8,000 for the search and related fees, and other costs related to printing, advertising and applicant travel.You will never make a more important decision then what youre getting ready to, stressed Blanton, who has conducted more than 75 superintendent searches since the 1970s. He said a national search would take between four and six months, culminating in a list of about five candidates who would undergo at least two-hour public interviews. Board members uniformly agreed that while theyd like a national search, a candidate with experience working in the Florida education system would be preferred. Board members also discussed empanelling an advisory committee comprising between 15 and 25 members of various Keys civic groups and constituencies to help whittle down the initial slate of candidates. June 30 was discussed as a potential hire date, although the start date was not determined. Jara said he would absolutely apply for the post.June 30 is goalFrom Superintendent,1AKey West Collegiate opened on Aug. 22, with 45 students and has since seen a drop in enrollment down to about 40, plus the tumultuous departure of principals Ashley Roberts and Debra Remsen, who complained of micromanagement from over-eager parents and a lack of resources. Charter schools receive funding from the state on a per-student basis, with the local school district acting as a funding conduit, retaining a 5 percent administration fee in the process. In its first year, Key West Collegiate received around $300,000. ADecember investigation into Academica by the Miami Herald called into question the Zulueta brothersinterest in real estate companies whose holdings, in some cases, are leased back to Academicamanaged schools. Also questioned was the practice of placing a principal from one charter school on the board of another, which goes on to approve the land leases. If you really look into that, German said of the investigation, it seemed more like an advertisement for them than a hard-hitting article. We talked about it during a board meeting and I really didnt see much room for criticism. Academicas management duties include financial services, recruiting, staffing, payroll coordination, strategic planning and state reporting. German said things would get started next week with a visit from three Academica teachers and a guidance counselor who would evaluate the staff. Jennifer Cleaver, who has a child in the school, is the interim principal.Help is comingFrom School,1A Waterfront getting amenitiesWith the expected approval of $62,500 for sod, picnic tables, irrigation and other expenses, the long-held plan of turning the Truman Waterfront in Key West into a park is beginning to take shape.Crews with the citys Community Services Department this week began work to clear and grade a 23,000square-foot portion, about half an acre, of the 33-acre property. The Truman Waterfront Advisory Board was expected to vote on spending the money for the work after press time on Tuesday, followed by a vote of the City Commission on March 6. The price breaks down as follows: $12,600 for sod; $22,000 for an irrigation system; $2,500 for an electrical system, $5,000 for picnic tables; $3,000 for mulch; $1,500 for borders; $4,500 for a water pump and tank; $8,000 for concrete; and $3,000 for a porous ground cover called Flexi-Pave. The money is coming from a surtax infrastructure fund that has generated more than $4.55 million earmarked for future development of the total park.In September, the commission chose Bermello Ajamil and Partners to serve as designer and project manager on the development, expected to cost around $8.5 million in total, including a new road system, interactive water feature, waterfront promenade and other amenities. In his executive summary, Community Services Director Greg Veliz said the planned sod installation is being done with future plans in mind. This project provides the city an opportunity to give the public over 23,000 square feet of recreational green space in the short term and incorporate that space into the master design. We are confident this project will be incorporated into the final design.Picnic tables, sod covering likely comingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comNext manager must live in cityAt the recommendation of an advisory search committee, the Key West City Commission next month will vote whether to spend $21,500 to hire a mainland headhunting firm to help find City Manager Jim Scholls replacement. Scholl, hired in 2007, isnt seeking an extension of his $180,000 annual contract, which expires July 1. On Feb. 22, the commission made an adjustment to the committee-established manager job description before approving the document. Specifically, commissioners amended a provision that allowed whoever is hired to live within 35 miles of the city to require residency in Key West proper. Scholl, who lives on Cudjoe Key, endorsed that decision. Theres only one road in and out of town and if something happens, he said, you need to be here and its blocked, its tough.Commissioner Mark Rossi championed the amendment: I would like to make sure that the new city manager designee live within the city limits of the city of Key West; that way he or she understands the needs of the residents ... the sounds of the ambulances, the crowds, the roosters.

EDITORIALLets play whos your candidateLETTERS TO THE EDITOREvacuation vs.realityNew hurricane evacuation models will assume that visitors, mobilehome occupants and marina liveaboards will have evacuated prior to the start of the residential evacuation. In the face of an approaching storm, prudent visitors to the Keys will evacuate early. However, if the notice to evacuate is given at 11 a.m., a fair number of hotel guests may leave the next morning (after breakfast). Many of these visitors will not be off the road when residents start to evacuate. After hoteliers finally evacuate their guests, the work to prepare the property for the storm begins. All employers will need their staff to shut down the business during that first 24 hours after a 48-hour evacuation notice is issued. Grocery stores and gas stations are especially busy right up until residents actually start leaving. Someone has to do this work. Many mobile-home residents are hourly employees. Their resources are limited and many need that extra days income. They can least afford to tell the boss, No I cant help shut down the business. There is also the cost of that extra evacuation days meals and lodging. Boats in marinas are cross-tied only after the marina closes, usually 24 hours before landfall. These boat owners evacuate after their boats are secured. In discussion and on paper, it appears reasonable to say, We issued the 48-hour evacuation order; everyone left, yet we all know this is not reality. When a low-intensity storm rapidly gains strength, triggering lastminute evacuation decisions, optimistic assumptions will fall apart. Evacuation models should use reality to plan for evacuation traffic. Bill Hunter Sugarloaf KeyBeware the governmentAs most of the informed population (independents and Republicans) are now aware, the U.S. Department of Agriculture confiscated a 4-year-old kindergartenerslunch in North Carolina, proclaiming to her that her mother was not giving her healthy meals, and substituted chicken nuggets for her mothers packed turkey sandwich lunch. If you think this is unreal, you aint seen nothing yet. Michele and Barack Hussein Obama will do everything in their power to distance your children from you, attempt to take over your life and threaten the very existence of what is now the greatest country in history. This sad story has not been reported by the so-called major news networks. Were it not for Bill OReilly and Rush Limbaugh, this story would have been buried like so many others in the past, to protect this guy and his administration. By the way, on a recent day for lunch, I had a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, potato chips and a bottle of apple juice, the same meal this 4-years mother sent her to school with. Pity the thug that tells my wife she is not feeding me nutritiously. Hope he or she has Major Medical insurance coverage. D.L. Lovelace Sugarloaf KeyEditors note:According to the Associated Press, North Carolina has specific guidelines for school lunches; the federal government had nothing to do with it, and officials at the school district where it happened admitted it was a mistake. The A.P. reports that Hoke County (N.C.) Schools Assistant Superintendent Bob Barnes said girls teacher should have handed the child a carton of milk to round out the turkey-and-cheese sandwich and banana she brought from home. Instead, the teacher erred by telling the tyke to get a cafeteria lunch. The A.P. further quoted Barnes as saying we do not go over and stare down every childs lunch. If you looked at the lunch the child had, Id love to have that lunch today. However, there are occasions that kids bring lunches that arent that complete, and thats why we try to supplement them with the things that they need to make it a complete lunch.Congressional redistricting process is so messed up that no one knows whos running to represent whomConfusion appears to be the watchword for Floridas once-a-decade redistricting process. In todays Keynoter reporter Kevin Wadlow walks through the twists and turns of new voting maps that leave Monroe County in the dark when it comes to who will represent us in Congress. It looks like longtime U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinens District 18 will no longer include the Keys, but its less clear exactly which district and which candidates for Congress will be on Keys ballots come November. There are at least two different scenarios in play, both of which move the Keys into a new congressional district that stretches from Key West to Immolokee (near Naples on Floridas southwest coast).Part of that geography now lies in District 25, currently represented by U.S. Rep. David Rivera, a first-term Republican who has not said if hell run for re-election.However, under the new map boundaries passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature, District 25 has been shifted to include a larger chunk of Republican precincts in Miami-Dade and fewer Democratic precincts in Broward County. Last week, U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Doral) filed papers to run in that newly mapped District 25 (he currently represents District 21). That leaves Rivera a newly created District 26, which is one of two new congressional districts being added in Florida fueled by population growth since the 2000 census. Confused yet? Two weeks ago, Ros-Lehtinens campaign sent letters to Republican voters in District 18, outlining her achievements and including a request for contributions. Only, Keys voters wont be able to vote for RosLehtinen come November, since both possible district realignments move Monroe into a Collier, Miami-Dade, Monroe mishmash.Just to further cloud things, a coalition that includes the League of Women Voters, Common Cause and the National Council of La Raza has sued in Leon County (Tallahassee) challenging the Legislatures redistricting maneuvers.They contend that state lawmakers engaged in heavyhanded, partisan politics to protect incumbents and are in violation of Florida constitutional amendments 5 and 6, passed overwhelmingly by voters in 2010.Those amendments aimed to end gerrymandering the process of drawing legislative and congressional voting districts to create a political advantage for one political party over the other. The Legislatures congressional plan is filled with unconstitutional political gerrymanders, the suit alleges, intended to favor one political party and certain incumbents, while disfavoring the other political party and other incumbents. One thing is clear: Keys voters will be left in the dark until the courts can unscramble this redistricting mess. Stay tuned.Schools flourishThe teachers of Monroe County public schools are the architects of the School Districts success. At a time when morale among teachers and staff is understandably at an all-time low, I wish to applaud the efforts of the faculty and staff throughout our schools. Despite obstacles occasioned by budget cuts and added pressure by our colleagues in Tallahassee, we have made significant progress toward our goal of moving Monroe County to the forefront of school districts in Florida. Indeed, we are fortunate to draw collaborations with our business partners and community leaders. We have successfully implemented new structures and strategies aimed at enhancing student achievement. We are blessed to have the support of the above-mentioned stakeholders for our hard-working parents, students.However, the true authors of progress in Monroe County schools are the dedicated teachers, staff and administrators who tirelessly advocate on behalf of students who are at the center of all the phenomenal work they do.I wish to thank the Monroe County family for its unyielding support and courage in these difficult times. I am honored to work alongside such consummate professionals and am confident we will continue to foster a community of learners. Jesus Jara Superintendent Monroe County School DistrictGo hug a treeIn response to Howard Gelbmans letter, Keys need a grand entrance for the visitors:My suggestion to Howie and the rest of the tree huggers here is to sculpt a huge tree in the median at the entrance to Key Largo with some of the pillars of this community holding hands around it. Im sure they would be thrilled to model for such a sculpture.After battling the demons within me, I begrudgingly altered my first thoughts for Howies Florida Keys grand entrance structure. That thought was of a sculpture of a masked robber holding up someone with a vacant lot deed in his hand. This of course, as we all know, is the preferred method of taking folksland here. Salvador Gutierrez New Port RicheyLive a full lifeI want to thank Bill Becker and anyone else for trying to revive my family after the motorcycle crash at mile marker 19. They were living their dream.Life is short, so love your family and friends as if they were your right hand. Thank you so very much. Nancy Sebring Vandalia, OhioSupport birth controlAll women who have, are or expect to, practice birth control need to be informed. Be sure the person you vote for reflects your own thoughts on contraception before casting your vote. It was in 1965 (seriously) that the U.S. Supreme Court (Griswold vs. Connecticut) said it was a basic privacy right to have birth control methods available. Up until then, birth control was illegal in some states. Do we really want to go back to that? E.T. Shafer IslamoradaPhased evacuation risksWhen I first visited the ancient city of Pompeii, Italy, I was 11 years old. The majority of the city at that time was still covered in a layer of lava that flowed from Mount Vesuvius on that fateful day in AD 79. Today, most of Pompeii is visible after years of clearing away the lava that buried the city and entombed thousands of people. Pompeii is a true time capsule that could have important lessons for our modern civilization.Archeologists have pieced together a fairly clear picture of the tragedy that befell Pompeii. Not too surprising is the discovery that this was not a tragedy that can be completely laid at Mother Natures feet. Some of the tragedy can be attributed to human nature. In the past few years, some of the documents, written in clay, bear witness to at least one decision made by the governing community that contributed to the enormous loss of life at Pompeii.Apparently around AD 65, the city was undergoing growing pains. Many travelers were attracted to Pompeii not only for its excellent fish paste, but also because it was sort of the Las Vegas of its day. However expansion posed a problem: The sea was on one side and the rumbling Mount Vesuvius was on the other. It was not prudent, according to the accepted wisdom of the day, to build further up the slopes of Vesuvius (ancient people didnt have a lot of scientific knowledge but they were not stupid). However a forum was held and, according to the tablets, a city elder and merchant proposed a system that would safely allow building further up the slopes of Vesuvius. This increased development would not pose a problem beyond the everyday normal congestion and sewage prevalent in ancient cities. The merchants were delighted. The problem of safely living close to the mountain had been solved. The solution was clearly etched in one of the recovered clay tablets: Phased evacuation.The rest, of course, is history. Recently there was an article in an archeology journal that stated the visitors to the city on that fateful day and the poor and the rich residents shared the same fate. Very few probably escaped.Please dont think I am making fun of the dead. Like some of our government officials, they are beyond caring. Ron Miller Key Largo Auxiliary recruiting for new hubThe Fishermens Community Hospital Auxiliary is set to unveil its new hub program Monday and is looking for new members to help staff it.Joanne Schwartz, president of the long-running volunteer group, says the hub will be a simple desk in the main hospital lobby. But it represents much more than that, she said.Its the center from which well be going to anywhere in the hospital that needs us for anything for a four-hour shift, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. from Monday through Friday, she said. Anything we can do to help facilitate the patients getting to where they need to go. Schwartz says auxiliary membership is roughly 90, but not all those members are active. The group plans to staff the hub with two volunteers per shift. For this hub desk we need 10 [volunteers] per week at a bare minimum. We have 17 ready to go, but well need more, she said. We have some exciting things happening and were looking to tell the community what were doing and generate some interest.New Fishermens Chief Executive Officer Hal Leftwich took over in January after the hospitals nonprofit board of trustees took control of the hospital from for-profit Health Management Associates. He said hes met with the group and is impressed with its work.I knew they had people that wanted to do more. The nice thing is we can find out what theyre interests are and use them there, he said.The hub program will be run in addition to the numerous other duties auxiliary members perform, including operating the hospital boutique from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. weekdays. Past Auxiliary President Carol Weldy now manages the shop.Its our biggest moneymaker, Schwartz said. Youll find everything from stuffed animals to purses, jewelry, scarves ... its quite eclectic. We also have a large craft group that makes things and we sell those items in the gift shop. The auxiliary makes numerous donations to the hospital, including furniture, an operating room table, recliners for waiting rooms, televisions and DVD players. It also provides $10,000 each year in scholarships for area nursing students, or children of employees seeking health-related educations.For more information on the auxiliary, call 289-6408 at the hospital or reach Schwartz at 743-7102.Hospital aides are expanding their effortsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCity approves panhandling zonesThe Key West City Commission has passed into law an ordinance that confines passive panhandling into two designated areas, one adjacent to Mallory Square, the other at Simonton Street Beach. Theres a citywide ban on aggressive panhandling. Passive panhandling, a protected form of speech, is not allowed in the core commercial tourist area between Simonton and Whitehead streets, the Key West Bight, and Higgs and Smathers beaches. Those in violation would be subject to a $500 fine and/or 60 days in jail. The concept is modeled on a 2000 Orlando ordinance that essentially bans panhandling except within 35 so-called blue boxes near Church Street Station and International Drive. Also at the Feb. 22 commission meeting:City Manager Jim Scholl recognized one of his two second-incommands, Assistant City Manager David Fernandez, who oversees operations, for 25 years of service. He worked briefly for the city in 1981, then continuously since 1987, starting out the second time as finance director. Scholl credited Fernandez with overseeing the integration of advanced sewage treatment into the citys utility arm. Thanks for putting up with me, Fernandez said.

But not too long ago, I was in a group demonstration, joshing around, when out of the blue, the vendor made an insulting personal comment about me. I was shocked and felt humiliated in front of my peers. I pretended it didnt bother me, but it did. Honestly, I cant remember what preceded the exchange. Maybe I started it. But the more I think about it, the angrier I feel. What should I do? Complain to the boss? Find another vendor? I like the vendors product and dont want to change. Pretend it didnt happen? Answer: Unless youre never, ever going to see this person again, you need to clear the air. And the sooner you do it, the better you will feel. You need to lay out your feelings, always a scary thought, but in the end youll be relieved to get it off your chest and feel great about your ability to stick up for yourself. You can do this. It comes down to technique and practice.Write down what you feel. Youve already identified humiliation, shock and anger. Is there anything else swirling around in there?Write a speech to this person, focusing on how you felt.Go over it and cut out all the accusations, old arguments, and slurs about the offenders heritage, IQ, sexual habits, appearance and so on. This is about you.Set the stage: Ive really liked working with you over the past few years. Your product is good and our customers like it. However, you said some things that really bothered me at the demonstration last week.Own up to your own feelings: When you said X, I felt humiliated/embarrassed/etc., in front of my colleagues. Now Im angry, too. I like you and your product, but Im not sure I can work with you any longer.Identify what you want: I need to know that you will never to speak to me that way again. Or I want to be treated professionally and courteously in the future.Practice your speech out loud, with a trained coach who can help you spot pseudo feelings, such as, I feel youre an idiot or you wouldnt have said such a stupid thing.Keep going over it until you can deliver your message calmly, without fumbling, breaking down or getting distracted.Prime your coach with possible reactions. Do you think the other person will cry? Accuse you of unspeakable acts? Cuss you out? Throw objects?Practice those worstcase scenarios with your coach, who knows assertiveness techniques that can help you calmly meet any situation and still stay on target.When youre prepared for any eventuality, set up a time to talk. You can do it in person or over the phone. Please, no e-mails.Deliver your speech.Then be quiet and let the other person respond. Based on your calm focus on your own feelings, I am 95 percent confident that your worst fears will not come true. In fact, youll probably get an apology. If you get blow-back, it will be much less than you expect. Youve still done the right thing and will be better prepared if it happens again.Jackie Harder owns Key Dynamics, a coaching, training and consulting company in Key Largo.

Bollig left and when the victim checked the bag, he found his mail inside, along with all the stuff stolen from his home, the Sheriffs Office said. The second burglary took place in the same area, also in January. The victim said it appeared someone had been staying in the home; there was extensive damage inside the house and the suspect had taken a flat-screen television, a spear gun and liquor from the house, says Deputy Becky Herrin. Fingerprints found at the houses belong to Bollig. Despite that, Sheriffs Office Capt. Chad Scibilia has said Bollig denies involvement in the crimes.The Sheriffs Office says four other Grassy Key burglaries in January, one on U.S. 1 and three on Morton Street, were committed by Robert Skinner, 41, of Tallahassee.Flat-screen TV, spear gun,booze are missingGRASSY KEY BOLLIG NEWS BRIEFS House Hunters comes to the KeysThe HGTVTVshow House Hunters highlights the Keys on its 10 p.m. March 9 broadcast.

The Dolphins (5-1) crushed the Eagles, 18-2, in four innings before suffering their first loss of the season against the Warriors, 15-0. Marathon had what coach Luis Leal called its best hitting performance of the young season Friday. Weve had some big scoring games, but top to bottom, the way everyone hit, it was a good offensive game for us, he said. Senior Drew Thornbrugh led the way, going 3-for-3 with five RBI, while Joey Gonzalez, Yoniel Esquirol and Sean Roussin each had two RBI. Ian Almodovar was 1for-3 with an RBI, two stolen bases and four runs scored, and Kevin McKeon was 1-for-1 with two walks and three runs scored. Thornbrugh started Fridays game on the mound and pitched two innings, striking out all six batters he faced. Patrick Ryan pitched two innings and gave up two runs on one hit and had two strikeouts. Jessie Deluca pitched the final frame and struck out two. But as well as the Dolphins played Friday, the momentum failed to carry over Saturday afternoon. Mental lapses and errors cost Marathon numerous runs against an already strong Westminster squad. We just picked a bad game to play our worst game of the season. When you play poorly against a good team things got out of hand quickly, Leal said. Led by University of Miami baseball and football commit David Thompson a projected first-round Major League Baseball draft prospect the Warriors led 7-0 after two innings. The score was 8-0 after four innings. As Leal noted, most of those runs were avoidable. The Warriors had just five hits in that span, but Marathon allowed six walks, two hit batsmen, four errors, two passed balls and a wild pitch. Westminster added another seven runs in the top of the fifth inning, including a two-run double by Thompson and a threerun homer that made the score 15-0.

Yes, coach Miguel Menendez said just before the district game with St. Brendan, as smoke rose from the grill of the 11Time Cafe. Absolutely, said longtime Conch fan Big John Fallon, waiting in line at the renowned concession stand, where picadillo was the special. I hope so, said Lee Roy LeCoumpte, the teams most devoted supporter, who was in his customary seat near the dugout. The game began with the Conchsace, Chris Garcia, on the mound, staring down at St. Brendans pint-sized leadoff hitter, Jose Guerra. Guerra singled, stole second and later scored on a passed ball for a 1-0 lead, pleasing the green-shirted Sabres who chanted in Spanish in their dugout. Pitching for the Sabres was Conley Diaz-Gomez, a lean left-hander who had a penchant for changing speeds and painting the corners of the plate. Hes goofy, but a very bright kid, said his mother, Anna Maria Gomez, her camera pointed through the backstop fence. The Conchs, their fresh faces hidden in large white ear-flapped batting helmets, took a 2-1 lead in the third inning when Michael Abreu and Tommy Ruffennach roared across the plate after the Sabres third baseman made a wild throw to first on a bouncer by Darren Miller. The lead was short-lived. Jerry Downs homered to right to lead off the St. Brendan fourth, and the team celebrated as if it had won the state championship. Another run soon followed when, with a man on third and a visiting fan yelling, Traelo alplato, Eric Alvarez hit a sacrifice fly. Key West, which had only one hit against DiazGomez, trailed, 4-2, as the Sabres came to bat in the sixth.

Its tough to say just how big it was, but were guessing over 50 pounds. Another day we had a 35to 40-pound wahoo stealing our yellowtails right at the boat. This was a wahoo with discerning tastes, as it passed up blue runners in favor of the tails. On the wrecks, amberjack is the king but the mutton bite is also consistent. Those putting in the time are catching five to 10 muttons per trip, with quite a few in the 15to 18pound range. In Hawk Channel, cobia are following the rays and, if you have plenty of time on your hands, this fishery can be quite exciting. Its a lot like dolphin fishing, where hours of tedium are broken by moments of pandemonium. On recent days, there have been more than a few cobia over 70 pounds coming back to the docks, with lots in the 30to 50-pound class. The channel humps are still holding plenty of goodsize king mackerel in the 10to 20-pound category as well as Spanish and cero mackerel. On the bottom at the same humps, there are enough snapper and hogfish to take home for dinner. The sluggish sailfish season will make for a challenging Leon Shell Memorial Tournament in Key Colony Beach this weekend. It will take the best of the best to prevail. Good luck to all. To sign up, go to www.leonshelltour nament.com The bay and gulf areas are offering up plenty of jack crevalle, bluefish, Spanish and king mackerel, the occasional cobia and lots of gag and Goliath grouper to keep everyone entertained.

But 15 minutes later, after two intentional walks and two hits, five more runs had scored and it was 9-2. Diaz-Gomez didnt come out for the last of the sixth. And his successor was wild. Four walks helped the Conchs cut the lead to 9-5 before a third pitcher, Rudy Del Rio, got the third out.Its gonna happen, Big John Fallon said grimly before the Conchs came up in the bottom of the seventh, and the dugout raised some hopeful chatter. But Matt Chelekis popped out on the first pitch, and Del Rio, just before 10 oclock, got Garcia to bounce back to him with two runners on to end the game at 9-5. After the teams shook hands, the Conchs (3-3) trudged toward left field to try to figure things out (the next game is at 3:30 today at Gulliver Prep). Across the way, the Sabres (4-0) knelt in prayer, their bus, emblazoned with MIAMI in gold lights, waiting nearby.Gulliver prep todayFrom Conchs,1BHurricanes sweep Coral ReefCoral Shores Highs Lady Hurricanes got in the win column Friday as both Cane lacrosse teams took a home-opening doubleheader from visiting Coral Reef High School. The Lady Canes (1-1) literally scored a goal a minute for the first eight minutes before backing off in a 15-1 win over a Coral Reef team playing its first varsity match ever. Our girls displayed a lot of sportsmanship, said Lady Cane coach Mark Hall. We pulled most of the starting offense very early but the girls understood why. Coral Shores was up, 11-0, at halftime. After opening against veteran state contender Pine Crest, Hall said, It was like we went from the frying pan to the spa. The Lady Cane defense didnt let anybody get close to starting goalie Elizabeth Roa, who did not allow a score. Coleen Welsh made four saves. Coral Reef scored on a late penalty shot. Jenn Doyle scored four goals for the Canes, with Julia Lozano getting three. Emily Albury scored twice. Raisa Santiesteban, Heather Doyle, Clair Brutger, Camilla Roa, Amber Hanson and Kaitlyn OLeary each scored once.Boys undefeatedCoral Shoresboys stayed unbeaten at 2-0 with a 16-7 win over Coral Reef. The Canes took an early lead but Coral Reef rallied to tie it 4-4 before Coral Shores let fly with a flurry of scoring shots. Gianni Gonzalez scored a team-high seven goals. Jon Lindback scored four and Bryce Lankford scored three. Addison Duma Kenny scored one goal. After making 14 saves in the net, goalkeeper Cody Momo Schlaudecker went to the field and got a score. Were happy with the win and the development of the team, head coach Barney Rich said. These young men are really coming along and learning how to play together.A.J. Hamer and Gabe Roberts each scooped four ground balls, while Kodi Roberts won 11 of 15 faceoffs. Justin Erickson, an offensive lineman in football, bowled over a Coral Reef defender.

Whether it's improving relationships or vowing to lose that holiday bulge, something about the changing of the calendar kicks our tails into high gear. And just because we're two months into 2012 doesn't mean you can't still make resolutions for the rest of the year. And believe or not, you may have an unexpected ally in the continuous battle to keep your resolutions resolute: Your pet. With their help, your resolutions may be more feasible than you think. So if you need a boost to get back on track with your 2012 goals, here are some suggestions that both your tails can benefit from.Resolution: Lose weight. Pet solution: Exercise with your dog.

Those days of adding a quarter to the swear jar aren't over -you just can't reap the benefits.

A new toy, a better bed, a donation to a local animal shelter -whatever it may be, you're no longer allowed to pocket the change.Resolution: Stress less. Pet solution: Connect with your pet during the day. You know how those viral videos of adorable animals instantly put a smile on your face?

Either way, view them when you need a pick-me-up.Resolution: Give back and volunteer. Pet solution: Get your pet to help. There are countless ways to give back and countless opportunities for your pet to join you. Pet therapy programs are a great way to incorporate both.
