The number of concealedweapon permits has risen dramatically in recent years as new laws making it easier to obtain them have been placed on the books by lawmakers, spurred on by the National Rifle Association, one of the most effective lobbying forces in the capital city. Among Floridians over age 18, about 6.5 percent have applied for and received permits to carry a concealed weapon. Add the 104,210 permits brought into the state by out-of-state visitors and the total rises to 906,924 as of Feb. 29, according to Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which administers the licensing program Among Florida's 67 counties, Dixie (Gainesville area) leads the state in concealedweapon permits issued per capita, with nearly one in 10 residents of the rural county licensed to carry. It's followed by Monroe County (the Florida Keys), where 7.3 percent of the population is licensed. Seven Florida Counties Gilchrist, St. Johns, Sumter, Lafayette, Glades, Liberty and Calhoun have the lowest per capita concealed weapons rates in the state, all under 3 percent. Statewide, the per-capita average is 4.2 percent. Take out children under 18, who make up about 21 percent of Florida's population, and the rate rises to 6.1 percent. "In Florida, being armed in public is such a casual formality that law enforcement does not issue the license to carry a loaded, concealed gun; that is done by the Department of Agriculture the same agency charged with issuing permits to pick tomatoes or transport livestock," Dan Gross, representing the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, said during recent congressional testimony. Florida lawmakers in recent years have approved several bills to relax gun regulations and bolster protec-More than 7 percent in Monroe have state OK for concealed gunsBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of FloridaFIREARMSFederally protected bird shotAcormorant shot with a pellet gun near Snake Creek survived but will never take wing again. Even if the double-crested cormorant recovers, he must spend the rest of his life as a permanent resident at the Laura Quinn Sanctuary in Tavernier, Florida Keys Wild Bird Center staffers said. The cormorant was rescued March 23 at the Venetian Shores subdivision on south Plantation Key. "He had been shot with some type of pellet gun," said Amanda Barber, wildlife rehabilitator at the center's hospital. "The pellet lodged into his wing, which suffered a major fracture due to the incident." "He will never fly again," Barber said. Cormorants, protected under federal migratory-bird law, cannot be hunted legally. State wildlife officers and the Monroe County Sheriff's Office were notified of the shooting "but they can't do much without more information," Barber said. Supporters of the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center launched a reward fund for tips that lead to an arrest and conviction in the case. "It's already over $600 and growing," center Executive Director Joan Scholz said. An X-ray donated by Island Hammock Pet Hospital of Key Largo confirmed the pellet is still embedded in the bird's wing. Several months ago, an osprey from the same general area required treatment for a pellet-gun injury, Barber noted.

Rick Scott could have a nasty reception awaiting him next month if he fails to approve a $50 million bond for Keys sewer projects by April 21. Friday, lawmakers delivered their proposed $70 billion 2012-13 budget to Scott. He has 15 days to sign it, and will likely spend the next two weeks making use of his veto pen. But no one, it appears, expects Scott to veto the Keys line item, passed by the state House and Senate, of $4.8 million to fund the first year's debt for the bond. Scott and the rest of the state Cabinet Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Office Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam will meet May 8 at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon. It's the first time in anyone one's memory a Florida Cabinet has held a meeting in the Keys. Many people speculated the governor would use that meeting to sign off on the Keys money, but it'll be long approved or denied at that point. Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi said county officials pitched the idea for a Cabinet meeting in the Keys during the annual Florida Keys Day event in Tallahassee in February. He's confident the sewer money will be in hand by then. "I doubt he's going to come down and explain why he's vetoing it. I think this is going to be a celebration. Obviously, it's a good sign he's coming down," he said. Gastesi said any proof necessary the county is confident in the bond can be found on the April County Commission agenda.

Right now the district's reserve compared to overall revenue is around 2.5 percent, or about $1.88 million, according to Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer. Back in January, when the board approved a $900,000 budget amendment related to unforeseen charter-school enrollment, that sent the reserve below 3 percent of revenue, requiring Superintendent Jesus Jara to notify the state Department of Education about reserve drop.If the figure falls below 2 percent, Commissioner of Education Gerard Robinson is empowered to establish a financial oversight committee to straighten out the district's balance sheet; Gov. Rick Scott can go so far as removing board members The latest twist, an obligation to repay $484,000 to the Florida Division of Emergency Management for excess recovery funds distributed after Hurricane Georges in 1998, will bring the district below the 2 percent threshold if Jara can't figure out a way to offset the cost. "I am trying to stay away from the fund balance for the full payment," Jara said. As far as identifying cuts from the initial $82.3 million budget for the fiscal year that ends June 30: "At this point of the year, we have very little wiggle room in our budget."

Earlier this year, lawmakers sent a bill to Gov. Rick Scott that would allow military personnel and law enforcement to obtain concealed weapons permits before they turn 21, the age requirement for other applicants. The reasoning is those people carried guns around the military, so it seems odd to deny them the right once they get out. State officials overseeing the licensing of concealed weapons experienced a deluge of requests in recent years. Officials said there was a fear that when President Obama was elected, gun laws would get tougher. Though they didn't, it seems to have created a rush to get guns. The spike has also been attributed to the decline in the economy and fears of more lawlessness. Some of the state's laws have come under scrutiny since the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, who was killed in February by a neighborhood watch member in Sanford in Central Florida. The shooter, George Zimmerman, 28, a convicted felon who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, contends he was defending himself under Florida's Stand Your Ground statute passed in 2005. He has not been charged. Gun control advocates say lax gun laws in Florida are at least partially to blame for Martin's death. They also say Florida is being used as a test case for guncontrol legislation in other states. Despite the attention brought by the Martin case, Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart) said lawmakers should refrain from "overreacting" and changing Florida's slate of gun laws. "I don't think we should use the Trayvon Martin tragedy, and it is a tragedy, to make changes to either Stand Your Ground or Florida statutes as they relate to concealed weapons," Negron said.State relaxes gun lawsFrom Guns,1A would come to the board at an April 24 session set for 5 p.m. at district offices on Trumbo Point in Key West. He addressed a scenario in which the payment would be cut in half, with half being paid from the reserve this fiscal year, the second half after July 1. Jara and Kinneer are navigating the district through a $7 million projected budget shortfall for next fiscal year, and this week rolled out a plan to cut some $6.3 million in year-over-year expenses. Proposed cuts include eliminating 40 teacher positions to save $2.8 million; overhauling the employee health benefits system to reduce $1.6 million; $1.2 million by continuing seven mandatory furlough days for all employees; and outsourcing the Transportation Department to save another $600,000. Public comments at a Tuesday town-hall session at Key West High School ran the gamut of general criticism from school administrators to near-desperate pleading from parents, with the common theme of profound frustration. Key West High Assistant Principal Chris Valdez said he owns several rental properties, and last year his tax bill went from $9,000 to $4,000. "We have to raise taxes," he said to robust applause. "We are letting our children down by not paying enough taxes in this community to afford to run the education system the right way, and it's as simple as that." There are four more town-hall sessions, all from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., scheduled for Monday at Sugarloaf School; Tuesday at Marathon High School; Wednesday at Coral Shores High School; and Thursday at Key Largo School.Reserves at risk From School,1AStolen $137,000 boat IS foundEven in a tough economy, a $137,000 boat being offered for an 85 percent discount raises red flags. The low asking price resulted in the recovery of the 30-foot Concept Boats vessel stolen last August from the Calusa Campground in Key Largo. Miami resident Yadiel Valera, 22, was arrested on grand-theft charges Thursday. Awould-be buyer called Concept Boats, an Opa-Locka firm, March 21 to ask about a trailered custom boat, complete with twin 35-horsepower outboards. "The potential buyer said he was suspicious because the person selling it was only asking $20,000," said Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin. "He suspected the boat was stolen." Based on information provided, the company owner confirmed the boat was listed as stolen. Asurveillance camera at Calusa Campground recorded the trailered boat being towed from the property by a white Cadillac sports-utility vehicle on Aug. 28. The boat owner reported the theft when he returned to the campground several days later, according to the Sheriff's Office. It had been missing since. The owner, alerted by Concept Boats after the March 21 call, contacted the Sheriff's Office. Detective Robert Dosh joined MiamiDade investigators to visit the home where the would-be buyer inspected the boat. The resident confirmed the boat had been parked there as a favor his nephew, but been moved. The nephew, Valera, drives a white Cadillac SUV, the uncle told the officers. After being located by investigators, Valera "told them someone had given him the boat," Herrin related. "He said he didn't know the person's name and couldn't tell detectives where the boat was located." Then he stopped talking. The boat, motors and trailer were found abandoned in Miami-Dade County on March 30. The exact location was not available at press time. Valera was taken into custody and booked into MiamiDade County jail. Abond amount was not available.Man arrested in the theft from Key LargoCRIME FRONTBug board gets new candidate, one drops outIt's been a busy week in the race for the District 1 Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board seat. Just two days after Key Wester Oliver Kofoid filed to seek 20-year incumbent Joan LordPapy's seat, Pat Bowman on Wednesday dropped out of the race because Monroe County redistricting maps put her outside District 1. Bowman, a Republican who ran for the same seat in 2008, is a Big Coppitt resident and new district maps enacted on Oct. 4 cut the District 1 border off just north of Key Haven. Kofoid, a Green Party candidate, joins 29-year-old Key Haven resident Jillian Cranney-Gage, a Republican, as the only filed candidates for the seat. Kofoid has never run for political office, but said he's been the Green Party of Florida treasurer for 16 years. It's unclear whether Lord-Papy, a five-term incumbent Democrat, will seek a sixth four-year term. She did not return a Thursday call for comment. Kofoid, 48, has lived in Key West for 20 years and works at the city of Key West's wastewater treatment plant. He holds a bachelor's degree in environmental science from Ferrum College and has served 19 years with U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary 13-1. Kofoid said his interest in the district was piqued in years past when thenDirector Ed Fussell repeatedly made headlines for clashing with Commissioner Bill Shaw and then-Commissioner Dick Rudell, who died in February 2011. Fussell's $184,600 annual salary and what many critics said was a bloated budget were the big issues during the 2010 election cycle. "There were several board members dedicated to Fussell. His credentials are impeccable, but the job of the board is to make the director accountable and the other is to do the budget. You have to say enough is enough and calm it down with the spending," Kofoid said. Kofoid said he's also interested in how the district is dealing with dengue fever, in particular, a proposed plan to release genetically modified male mosquitoes in Key West. The theory is the sterile male mosquitoes would breed with wild females, which carry the dengue virus that's been a past problem in Key West. That would diminish the population of the denguecarrying mosquitoes. The district hasn't found a state or federal agency that would issue a permit for the program. "As a scientist, we look at a lot of data over time and there's hardly any data. Another thing, we love independent peer review. If you tried to get a medication approved, you have to go through the [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] and do independent tests," Kofoid said. Four-term Mosquito Control Board incumbent Steve Smith of Key West, a Democrat, has a pair of challengers for the District 3 seat in Democrat Timothy Root and Republican Stephen Hammond. Bill Shaw, a four-term incumbent Republican from Marathon, filed for re-election to his District 4 seat. No one has filed to oppose him. Primary elections will be held on Aug. 14 and the general election is on Nov. 6.Kofoid wants to unseat Papy, Bowman is outBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comELECTION 2012 KOFOIDBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

It covers roughly 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe Key through Big Pine Key. "The big issue is we're all systems go with Cudjoe Regional and the reason is because of the additional $50 million we're getting from the state. We have to get these things in progress as far as the infrastructure sales tax and getting the assessment roll in place," Gastesi said. The one-penny infrastructure sales tax is being counted on to fund one-third of the cost of Cudjoe Regional. It has a sunset date of December 2018 and the county plans to put a referendum to extend the tax on the November ballot. "This will finalize all the major projects in the Keys and we'll be just about fully sewered after these two projects," he added, referring to the village of Islamorada's proposed $110 million sewer system, with which it likely will partner with Key Largo. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is Monroe County's partner in the Cudjoe Regional and other unincorporated systems. Gastesi said the Aqueduct Authority would be responsible for choosing a contractor to build the Cudjoe system, which will take in the area from Cudjoe Key through Big Pine. He said the county has pledged to have that contract in place by March 1 2013. As for the Cabinet's meeting at Switlik, Principal Leslie Salinero said the kids are excited.

City staff on Tuesday recommended the City Commission approve an adjustment to dockage fees to market rate based on comparisons with other Key West liveaboard marinas. Although consideration was postponed until May 15, if passed, only new tenants or those who want to change slips would be subject to the new rates. The current rate at Garrison Bight is $11.58 per foot monthly for liveaboard boaters; if adjusted, the new fee would be $15.64 per foot. For a 35-foot boat, monthly rent would change from $405 to $547. Marilyn Wilbarger, the city's property manager, said the increase for the Palm Avenue marina is needed to address upcoming infrastructure needs at the marina and otherwise maintain what's there already. Tarpon Pier resident Robert Lane said an increase would "eliminate houseboat row and the liveaboards over time. The marina will become a non-affordable housing marina and a number of liveaboards will be reduced, if not eliminated, in 10 years. I do not think the City Commission wants to eliminate that option." Lane's wife Mary Lou described the marina as "diverse," consisting of retirees, service-industry workers, government employees and some part-time residents. She said there's "one common thread: Affordable living in Key West. If the new rates are implemented ... affordable living as we know it will be gone." "What we have there is a community," Marlin Pier resident Bill Blue said. "What I'm getting at [is] there's a lot of retired people there on fixed incomes and a lot of them are terrified ... they're gonna be run out of it. I know we all have family like that; they don't have the option to run out and get another job." Resident Stuart Kessler said the marina is supposed to sustain itself off the rent. "The budget relationship was always to make that a self-supporting community. Instead of making this a relationship based on the cost of operations ... it changes fundamentally from an operating budget to a market-rate budget and it disconnects the historic relationship. That change in relation to market rate, I ultimately believe, will result in the loss of this wonderful asset." Commissioner Mark Rossi, whose District 2 includes Garrison Bight, said the proposed increase is too high. "That's a rough marina over there. Go over there and take a walk. It needs work. Let's keep it affordable for them. I can't see $15.64 a foot; it's an unreasonable rate for what's over there. If that was a top-notch marina over there ... and everything was up to par and perfect, I could appreciate it but I can't support this."Liveaboards turn to say none neededBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KEY WEST Murder suspect nabbed Key West police, assisting the Maine State Police, on Thursday arrested a fugitive wanted for murder in Augusta, Maine. Michael Young, 40, was found hiding in a shower at the Poinciana Trailer Park in New Town Key West at 6 p.m., just hours after authorities in Maine alerted Keys cops that Young "might be in the area," police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. Sgt. Jason Richards of the Maine State Police's Major Crimes Unit said "historical information," directed detectives to South Florida. "We knew he had ties down there." However, he didn't say what led them to the Poinciana Trailer Park and who owns the trailer he was in, or how long he might have been in Key West. However, Monroe County Sheriff's Office records show Young lived at Poinciana in 2007. Young is accused of stabbing to death 46-year-old David Cox in June 2011; the two shared in apartment on Green Street in Augusta. Last month, a grand jury in Kennebec County, Maine, indicted Young on the murder charge. In 2007, Young was charged in Key West with an open-container violation. Young's at the Stock Island jail, awaiting extradition to Maine.He's accused in June 2011 stabbing deathKeynoter Staff KEY WEST YOUNG
Saturday,April 7,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Cap on new hotel-unit awards is possibleIf a Marathon hotel owner wants some of the 100 new room allocations awarded the city, should he or she be limited to a certain number? That was among the main issues raised Tuesday when the city's Planning Commission hosted a workshop to gather a second round of feedback on doling out the 100 allocations awarded by the state in January. City Planning Director George Garrett recapped the myriad suggestions offered up at a Feb. 23 meeting before opening the session to comments from the public and Planning Commission members. The state Cabinet, based on a state Department of Economic Opportunity recommendation, awarded the 100 units in recognition of Marathon's nearly completed citywide sewer system. The city could also borrow forward another 100 units. In addition to a possible cap on numbers, there was talk of requiring the purchase of the rights to two existing private transient units for every one doled out from the city's pool. The city has a moratorium in place on new hotel units. The only way to secure existing rights is to purchase them from private owners, many of whom believe the city's pool will devalue their holdings. "I do like the idea of capping how many units can be done. Marathon was built on mom-and-pop places and it preserves the character of our town as a family destination," business owner Fred Roth said. Planning Commission Chairwoman Marien AranSpinrad suggested the city consider the "broader picture" and decide whether it wants to encourage smaller mom-andpop motels versus large-scale resorts like Tranquility Bay. Spinrad agreed with Mayor Pete Worthington's suggestion for an analysis of the market. Worthington said if smaller motels run at lower occupancy rates than larger resorts, it indicates demand. "That ought to figure in on where we get the biggest bang for the buck," Worthington said.

Rick Scott on March 29. The group and its 67 member counties, including Monroe, have been up in arms over the bill that could cost local governments $325 million in backlogged denied claims from the past 10 fiscal years. Monroe's portion could be as high as $3.3 million, as well as an extra $800,000 per year moving forward. FAC spokeswoman Cragin Mosteller said it's unclear who would be sued the state itself or its Agency for Health Care Administration being likely candidates but that FAC would file it. "The board will decide whether the association will file a suit and each county will make a determination on whether we want to join the lawsuit," she said. Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers is the Keys representative on the FAC board. She'll be in on the Thursday conference call. "It's absolutely ridiculous. No one would expect people to pay [bills] without challenging them. It feels like blackmail," Carruthers said. "It's just another thing where people in Tallahassee can say, We're reducing the deficit,'but all they're really doing is pawning it off on local governments." The bill (HB 5301) essentially strips counties of the right to dispute claims that it was allowed to deny or dispute in years past. The Agency for Health Care Administration administers the Medicaid program, which provides health care for low-income residents. It bills counties for their portion of a patient's costs. Each county is responsible for its own residents, but past bills have often contained questionable addresses. Monroe County provided the Keynoter with bills where "residents" claimed Miami addresses; others used post office box numbers or no street address at all. The bill includes a fiveyear plan for the state to recoup money from denied claims. The county must choose between repaying 100 percent of past bills and having the ability to challenge, or accepting a 15 percent credit and foregoing that right.Keys'portion to be repaid around $3.3MBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com MEDICAID

CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALThis sunshine isn't welcomeLETTERS TO THE EDITORThe Trayvon Martin shooting illustrates how the NRA holds a grip on FloridaThe iconic image of the Texas Ranger with a holstered .45-calibre handgun riding low on the hip paints a picture of Texas that might be scripted by the National Rifle Association. Only it turns out that Florida tops the Lone Star State when it comes to the number of residents packing heat legally.Among the many surprises found in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, about 50 miles northeast of Orlando, is an unwelcome focus on how Florida has become the NRA's most-favored state.Areport in The Miami Herald tracks the number of pro-gun laws that got their start in the Sunshine State. That includes the controversial Stand Your Ground law that has become the cause clbre in the Trayvon Martin shooting. It turns out the neighborhood watch member who shot Martin has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. He's one among nearly 900,000 Floridians who have concealed-weapon permits. That's nearly twice as many as Texas. Wow, cowboy. That's a shocker. Maybe not to former state lawmaker Dan Gelber, a Miami Beach attorney who fought against many of the NRA-sponsored gun laws introduced in Tallahassee while serving in the state Senate. Interviewed last week by the Herald about the Stand Your Ground law, Gelber said the NRA"won every big issue.... Lots of elected officials are afraid to cross them." Last year, if you recall, the NRAlobbied hard for a law that makes it illegal for physicians to ask patients if they own guns. That law is temporarily invalidated by a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court's 11th Circuit. Daniel Vice, an attorney for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, said the law is so clearly unconstitutional that Florida will likely be on the hook for all attorney fees, which could run into the millions of dollars. Another law passed by the NRA-lobbied Legislature punishes local elected officials who enact gun ordinances that are stricter than state gun laws. As a result, Miami Beach commissioners in January repealed that tourist-dependent city's gun ordinances, which restricted the sale, discharge and possession of firearms. That's because the law passed last year levies fines and even grants the governor the power to remove elected officials who try to get tougher on guns. Any Florida municipality that keep records of gun owners can be fined up to $5 million again thanks to successfully lobbying by the NRA. Given all the negative publicity Florida has gotten of late thanks to the Stand Your Ground controversy maybe Visit Florida, the state's public-private tourism agency, needs to rethink the state's tourism message "Your Florida side is calling." Perhaps something like: "Come Packin' Cuz We Are."

Since I have not seen any law enforcement shooting or trapping these animals, I decided to call the nuisance alligator number (there isn't one for crocs), and got the good ole'government shuffle "We don't do crocodiles, but there is a man in the unit who does." I was then put on hold and transferred to his line, which, lo and behold, had a message that said he would be out of the office for several weeks. We dug these canals it is not their natural habitat. The government took hundreds of acres for a crocodile sanctuary (the Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge in North Key Largo) and assigned officers to keep me out of their sanctuary. Well, my home, like the rest of us, is my sanctuary so keep the crocs out of my damn front yard. I would like to extend an invitation to Gov. Rick Scott to come on down with his family and enjoy a day on the dock. We are pet friendly. Bill McKay Key LargoKids win with gong show On March 3, Elks Lodge 2139 of Marathon had a gong show. This was a benefit, with money originating from ticket sales going to help Marathon-area children. The food was homemade and paid by the committee. The gong show was a sellout due to the very enthusiastic committee and its volunteer workers. It was this passionate belief to help the local children. The whole of Marathon responded by signing up to participate in acts (what good sports), by selling tickets and with retailers donating generous prizes. All of the cooperation was overwhelming. The gong show sparked more laughs, standing ovations and handclapping than has been seen in this area for a long time. This was reported by all who attended. Joy is not in things, it is in us, and gratitude will be in the memories and hearts of these children. Elaine and Scott Smith Joe Pereria Helen Catchpole MarathonGenerosity evidentWhen Dr. Thomas Operchal and his wife Mary Ellen closed their ophthalmology practice in Marathon recently, they had a dilemma. The office housed the practice's medical equipment, furniture and office supplies. The couple certainly didn't want to throw everything out or store it all somewhere. Instead, they turned to the website for wwwKeysReuse.com which lists the needs of 30 nonprofits in the island chain. As a result, the Operchals made an incredible donation of many needed items to local charitable organizations. The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center received two vanloads of furniture, office and medical supplies and It's Just for Kids Key West came to Marathon to pick up many items on its wish list. According to Wild Bird Center Executive Director Joan Scholz, the group also got a much needed-donation of a surgical light and a great deal more. It's Just for Kids Key West received artwork, posters and other-much needed supplies. KeysReuse.com's motto is "Don't Throw It Away, Give It Away" and the Operchals did just that. The website lists more than 400 different items that nonprofits in the Keys are looking for. It makes it very easy to find who needs what and most of the nonprofits will come and pick up needed items. People with items to donate should log on to www.KeysReuse.com to see what groups need. Michael Welber MarathonKilling debases usKilling other human beings is an unnatural act. It's incongruent with the self-actualizing potential that is harbored within each person. The adrenalin surge accompanying an individual's initial battlefield success is a delusional thrill that heightens a baser animal instinct, which subtly draws the victor into the abysmal depths of darkness. The government's training and indoctrination, highlighting the necessity of taking another's life, soon wears off, exposing the grotesque reality that is concealed behind such rhetoric. I'm not familiar with anyone who has successfully transitioned himself or herself from being a formidable killer back into civilian life without any hitches. Recently, I witnessed a strong, handsome and intelligent member of the armed forces, 25 years of age, melt down on his newly acquired civilian job. Having served five successive tours of combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, much of his humanity and soul had been sucked out of him. The emotions he had repressed were raw. The deep pain and suffering that haunted this man were clearly evident. Consoling him, I learned that he had been abruptly discharged from the service because of a psychological disorder. Having been wounded in combat, he experienced a breakdown while undergoing physical therapy. His goal was to be hired on by a civilian contractor who was providing mercenary type of services in a forward combat area. He assured me that the previous success he had killing the enemy of the day would guarantee him a significant salary increase. Aculture and nation that revels in war defiles its civilization. Its evolving violent nature will inevitably erupt and turn upon itself. Slaughtering children and innocent civilians, who are always exponentially murdered in our extended warring escapades, is a special type of genocide. Adumbed-down electorate, debased and corrupted by its own piggishness and self-interest, has gotten, for the most part, the type of government that it deserves. Adecadent corner has been turned in America. We shall either move toward the light or continue to grasp the miserable strands of a life riddled with fear, contempt and selfabsorption. John Donnelly Key LargoPublic gets chance to grill finalistsThe chairman of the Florida Keys Community College board aid upcoming interviews of college presidential candidates would provide the community an opportunity to interact with the three finalists. An 11-person committee charged by the board with helping choose a successor for President Larry Tyree, who's retiring in June, identified three finalists on Wednesday to bring to Key West for interviews. Meeting at the college's Stock Island campus, the panel selected: George Bishop, vice president for academic affairs and learning support at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City. JonathonGueverra, chief executive of the Community College of the District of Columbia in Washington D.C. Allen Witt, president of Hillsborough Community College's SouthShore Campus in Ruskin, south of Tampa. The next step is a 9 a.m. April 27 reception/town-hall meeting in the lobby of the Tennessee Williams Theatre. Board Chairman Ed Scales said the session would consist of a moderator posing questions to the three finalists, then the discussion would open up to faculty, students and interested others. "We want to make sure that all the constituencies feel like they're part of the process," Scales said. "It's a good opportunity to see how people are on their feet, how they can handle questions that they may not be prepared for." Then on April 28, the board will conduct formal 90minute interviews with each candidate, followed by a vote and direction to staff to begin contract negotiations with the one chosen, Scales said. The start date is July 1. Those interviews are scheduled 9 and 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the board room on Stock Island. The college is advertising the presidential position with a salary not to exceed $180,000 annually, including housing, auto and cellphone stipends. Before he voluntarily gave up half his salary in the summer of 2011 to help mitigate a budget shortfall, Tyree earned $216,000 including the perks. Bishop, Gueverra and Witt were culled from a list of nine semifinalists. Those nine were chosen from an initial pool of 43 applicants. On March 30, the nine interviewed with the search committee via Web teleconference. Issues raised among the candidates include growing the college's marine biology and technology programs into a four-year degree program. Three chosen to interview for presidentKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE BISHOP GUEVERRA WITTTwo get jail for trap robbingAcommercial lobster diver lost his state fishing licenses and his boat after pleading guilty to felony lobster-trap molesting March 26. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia also sentenced Frank M. Guerra, 41, of Tavernier to nine months in jail and two years probation. During his probation, Guerra will not be allowed on Monroe County waters. Garcia ordered the defendant to surrender a 21-foot Gulfstream boat, its 150horsepower outboard and dive gear, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission account. Aco-defendant, Homestead resident Alberto Rodriguez, 48, was sentenced to six months in jail and the same on-the-water ban during his two years of probation. FWC officers arrested Guerra and Rodriguez n November 2010 off the Upper Keys oceanside. The men were charged with three counts of felony lobster-trap molesting, since the case involved traps owned by three different people. Guerra's commercial fishing license to dive for lobster one of only about 125 issued in Monroe County was placed on "permanent suspension," the FWC says. Rodriguez and Guerra were arrested one day after an FWC crackdown on trap-robbing snared two other suspects in a similar but separate case.Keynoter StaffIN THE COURTS By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com
If you're thinking about using your credit card to pay your income taxes when they're due on April 17, think again. It could cost you dearly in the long term. For one thing, the socalled convenience fee that you'll pay is way high. Credit card payments to the Internal Revenue Service are processed by third-party providers. These companies charge a processing fee, which is as low as 1.89 percent and as high as 3.93 percent. That may not sound like much, but when added to your credit-card balance, it can be significant. "If your tax bill is $8,000, a processing fee of 2.35 percent will cost $188, which is rolled into your credit-card's balance," said Bill Hardekopf, chief executive of LowCards.com, a credit card information website. "If you don't pay off your card's balance in its entirety at the end of the month, you will begin to incur interest rate charges on the $8,188 balance, which, depending on the account's annual percentage rate, can be an extremely costly way to pay your taxes." Even if you do pay off the balance at the end of the month, Hardekopf said the card must pay cash-back rewards or miles that are greater than the processing fee for this payment method to make sense. One credit counselor takes a harder line. "The convenience fee outweighs any benefit provided by cash-back or miles on a loyalty program," said Todd Mark, vice president of education at Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Greater Dallas. "You're always going to be paying more via the credit card because of the fees." One alternative to charging your taxes on a credit card is to make monthly payments to the IRS. "Before charging your taxes on a credit card, check into installment options from the IRS, especially if your credit card has a high APR," Hardekopf said. "The IRS will charge interest, but it may be less than what you would pay with your credit card." You should know, however, that the government will subtract any taxes you owe from future refunds until you're paid in full. Also, you should make your monthly payments as large as possible to limit interest and penalty charges. Those charges will continue until your tax bill is paid off. For more information on installment payments, go to the IRS'website. Of all the creditors in your life, Uncle Sam is the one you want to pay off the soonest. You don't want the federal government on your back for money you owe. One way to avoid that is to anticipate whether you will owe taxes. "If you know that you're going to be owing taxes, this is like another periodic obligation, a bill that you should be preparing for during the course of the year," Mark said. "Figure what your bill is going to be and start putting one-twelfth of that into an account each month so you've got the resources to pay in full. Nobody should be surprised on April 15." Another option is to increase the amount withheld from your paycheck so you don't end up owing taxes. Using your credit card to pay taxes may be convenient, but it could bring you trouble down the road if you pile that debt on top of debt you already have. "If you're paying 20 or 30 percent on a credit card, that's financially detrimental to your long-term health," Mark said. "There's no sense in adding on top of the [tax] bill by financing it." Seriously, do you really want to spend the rest of this year paying off last year's taxes?

Rick Scott faces the same issue that caused a round of headlines in his first turn as the final vote on funding: Member projects sprinkled throughout the spending plan. Friday, lawmakers sent Scott their $70 billion budget for the coming fiscal year and he has until April 21 to sign it. The governor will make his decision on which items live or die after a year in which he whacked a record $615 million from the plan with his veto pen (critics at the time pointed out that the number was significantly inflated by slicing more than $300 million in authorized spending for Florida Forever, much of which was never expected to materialize). That move appears to have gotten the attention of lawmakers who are more active in trying to make sure he hears the case for their projects this year, Scott said. "I know more people, which is a positive," he said. "I'm getting a lot more phone calls this year, too." But Scott has said his criteria remain largely the same as what he outlined last year a focus on what will benefit those who will foot the bill. "My responsibility is to the taxpayers of the state," he said. "If it's a good return on the taxpayers'money, I'm interested in it. If it's not, I'm not." Among his choices: Whether to OK $50 million for Monroe County sewer construction. Keys officials pitched it to Scott saying the construction would create jobs. Some of the projects he will face are the same as last year. Once again, a rowing center in Sarasota County would receive millions if Scott left it untouched. The project sat at $1 million for much of the budget process this year, then moved to $5 million in the final version. Lawmakers also tucked into the plan $445,000 for the Mound House in Lee County. The website for the Fort Myers Beach attraction bills it as "Estero Island's oldest standing structure" and notes that it "sits on an ancient Calusa Indian mound." House budget-writers found room for $1 million for the Central Florida Sports Commission to help with the Major League Soccer Combine and spring training. Another $500,000 flowed to the Florida Aquarium in Hillsborough County. LaBelle, in Hendry County, received $350,000 for a wharf projectGovernor has until April 21 to approve itBy BRANDON LARRABEENews Service of FloridaSTATE GOVERNMENTKeys updating oil-spill responseAweek before the second anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon explosion, Florida Keys emergency planners gather to confront a second oil spill.Fortunately, the April 12 spill this coming Thursday is theoretical. The response will be confined to a tabletop preparation exercise in Key West that tests an updated contingency plan. "Our team of local planners and stakeholders have worked very hard this past year to update our area contingency plan to include local and regional lessons learned after the Deepwater Horizon disaster," said Capt. Pat DeQuattro, commander of U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West. "I'm eager for this exercise to test our new plans and to include additional feedback from our local partner agencies," said DeQuattro, designated as the federal government's onscene coordinator for a major spill near the Keys. During the planning exercise, responders will outline plans to deal with an imagined oil leak from a deepwater drilling platform in the Florida Straits. Repsol, a Spanish oil company, now is using the Scarabeo 9 drilling platform to search for oil reserves in offshore of Cuba in waters about 70 miles from Key West. Given the Keys' near-miss in the BPDeepwater Horizon spill in the spring of 2010, the prospect of drilling for oil in waters that pull the Gulf Stream current past South Florida creates uncertainty among oceanic advocates. The BPDeepwater Horizon spill spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil more than 200 million gallons into the northern Gulf of Mexico after the oil rig exploded, burned and sank on April 20, 2010. Eleven men on it died. Oil flowed from the sea floor about a mile down for nearly three months until the spill was capped July 15. Although some government forecasts predicted the massive spill was likely to reach the Keys, favorable oceanic currents apparently kept any Deepwater Horizon oil from reaching Florida Keys waters. However, concern about oceanic pollution devastated the Keys tourism in the 2010 summer months. During the 2010 spill, officials discovered that Keys response plans and equipment were outdated or inadequate to handle a largescale spill. Thursday drill comes 2 years after disasterENVIRONMENTCity OKs Glynn Archer transferAfter more than two years of debate, the Key West City Commission on Tuesday voted unanimously to approve an acquisition contract for Glynn Archer Elementary School, beginning a 180-day due-diligence period that could result in conversion of the building into a new city hall. In exchange for the school, the owner, the Monroe County School District, would receive space on a city-owned Stock Island parcel adjacent to Gerald Adams Elementary School for bus parking. Mayor Craig Cates, who has pushed for Glynn Archer as a new city hall instead of a rebuild of the crumbling City Hall at 525 Angela St., called the vote a "first step." "To move forward with this at this time is just signing a contract," Cates said, "while we do our due diligence and work out all the details and concerns the commission has." "At the end of the 180 days is when we'll make the decision whether to move forward with it. I can't see holding this up and trying to work out every detail before we approve this conveyance." City Attorney Shawn Smith said a final vote would be taken before the city takes possession of Glynn Archer. During the due-diligence period, he told commissioners, "You will determine whether it's suitable on your sole and absolute discretion. It will in fact come back before you for a yes or a no vote." The approximately 300 Glynn Archer students are set to move into a new school on the Horace O'Bryant Middle School campus on Leon Street, set for completion in summer 2013. That's also the earliest the city would have access to Glynn Archer for renovations. Also Tuesday, outgoing City Manager Jim Scholl, whose five-year tenure ends on July 1, said that during the transition to a new manger, staff "have got to continue moving forward." "This is not the time to get sloppy or be unsafe in anything we do. We need to continue to do things with the right level of effort and move along at a deliberate pace to accomplish everything eventually." He said it's important to keep a close eye on major projects under way, including development of the 33acre Truman Waterfront into a public park and an 880day rebuild of North Roosevelt Boulevard that's set to start April 16.Now work starts on city seeing the specificsBySEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

"It was a hard-fought game with both starting pitchers doing a heck of a job," Cane head coach Pat Meyers said. "Marathon is always a big game, and it's always nice to get an incounty win." Cane pitcher Brandon Joyce tossed a three-hitter and fanned a dozen Dolphins under the lights at Founders Park. Dolphin starter Drew Thornbrugh allowed five scattered hits through the first five innings but kept the Canes off the scoreboard. Then Coral Shores (12-71) erased the prospect of extra innings, starting when outfielder Kalen Carter doubled to open the bottom of the sixth. "Kalen's double really sparked the team," Meyers said. "There was a guy in second with no outs. Everything came together." After two walks loaded the bases, Cane third baseman Jonathan Mitjans tagged a two-run single. Catcher David Bogue, who was solid behind the plate, added a single. Achange of Marathon pitchers resulted in two straight hit batters and a run scored off a wild pitch. Coral Shores brought seven runs across the plate. Marathon's Yoniel Esquirol (2-for-3) put the Dolphins (14-9) up in the first, slapping a triple and scoring on a wild pitch.Marathon's 1-0 edge lasted until the fourth when Carter cracked a one-out single and later scored on a single by Mitjans (2-for-3, 3 RBI). Carter was 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Juan Casanova and Bogue each had two hits. Josh Sands singled in the first as part of Coral Shores'nine-hit offense.It was the second close game for Coral Shores in two days. On Monday, the Canes rallied for two runs in the first extra inning to salvage a 3-2 victory over visiting Immokalee. The Canes held a 2-0 lead heading into the top of the seventh when the Indians scored twice to make it a 2-2 game.

Quad pitched a no-hitter against Keys rival Marathon High and was just one walk to Samantha Bonilla shy of a perfect game, as her Conchs beat the Dolphins 10-0 in six innings."One batter away from a perfect game. I told her last night I had goose bumps," coach Steve Wells said. "It was a great way for her to finish up. She's a great kid and done very well this year."Key West scored two runs with two outs in the second inning to break a scoreless tie. Britney Price singled, stole second base and scored on a double by Lindsey Free. Raquel Schoneck singled to score Free and make it 2-0. The Conchs added another three runs in the fourth. Adriana Garcia walked and Price doubled to put runners at second and third base.

The Conchs put the game out of reach with four more runs in the fifth inning. Devin Osterhoudt and Leci Archer singled and Brooke Marsden walked to load the bases. Adriana Garcia singled to score two runs, Raquel Schoneck doubled in a run, and another scored on a wild pitch to make it 9-0.

The close loss could give the Conchs confidence in a possible rematch with Gulliver for the district-tournament title.

With the help of participating anglers, researchers have confirmed that some tarpon move long distances and others stay close to home. Biologists have also found evidence of a connection between tarpon habitats in Southwest Florida and the Florida Keys. Anglers took DNAfrom two tarpon in Charlotte Harbor in August 2010. Both fish were caught the following spring in the Keys more than 150 miles away. The tarpon were initially sampled inshore at the end of a spawning season, in close proximity to offshore areas in the Gulf where spawning is presumed to occur. Sampling of another tarpon showed the fish can travel a similar distance in a shorter time. That tarpon was caught near Islamorada in July 2011, about a month after an angler reeled it in during peak spawning season near Sarasota. Researchers can track these tarpon thanks to volunteer anglers who submit the DNAsamples to the FWC. When an angler catches and samples a tarpon that was previously sampled, its called a recapture. Through recaptures, biologists can compare catch times and locations to determine movement. In the study, the farthest distance recorded between an initial catch and a recapture is about 280 miles. That tarpon was reeled in near Apalachicola in July 2007 before it was recaptured near Captiva in May 2009. Anglers have submitted more than 13,000 tarpon DNAsamples to the FWC, including more than 4,000 in 2011. Among the samples, researchers have documented about 100 recaptured tarpon. Anglers who want to help with the study can obtain a free, easy-to-use tarpon DNAsampling kit by send an e-mail to TarponGenetics@MyFWC.c om or by calling (800) 3674461.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,April 7,2012 Conch Republic Days Apr.20-29 celebrate 30th anniversaryThe Conch Republic Military Forces gather for the annual big showdown with the bully feds in what has become a much-celebrated, much-imitated 10day birthday party dedicated to non-conformity. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Conch Republics secession from the union in a territorial dispute now much celebrated. This honors the history of the Conch Republic, which grew out of a 1982 incident when the U.S. Border Patrol set up druginterdiction roadblocks in Florida City, stopping all traffic exiting the Keys. That enraged Keys officials, especially tourism industry boosters who took unkindly to the heavy hands of the feds. Dennis Wardlow, who was Key West mayor at the time, led a contingent of civic and business leaders to the steps of the federal courthouse in downtown Miami. The protesters seceded from the U.S., declared war, then sued for war reparations and passport recognition. All in jest, of course. And every year since then, the Keys has found an excuse to celebrate Conch independence, despite the fact that war reparations never came. And the mayhem is always mixed with mirth, witness the official motto of the Conch Republics Military Forces: AFarce To Be Reckoned With. Indeed. Peter Anderson, who imbues the event with his own, over-size personality, describes the revelry as The Conch Republics own 4th of July, Bastille Day & Cinco de Mayo all rolled into one. We couldnt have put it any better. Activities scheduled during the April 20-April 29 fest range from a mock sea battle (where the only casualties are to egos and bragging rights), drag races and a Wreckers race out to the reef. The always popular bed races, fiddlincontests and drinking bouts are also on tap, along with the Worlds Longest Parade, Thursday, April 26, hosted by U.S. 1 Radio and their sister station Conch Country. Among highlights of this years 10-day event: the Great Conch Republic Drag Race, 1-5 p.m. Saturday, April 21, where female impersonators, decked out in high heels and big hair, run down Duval Street to the cheers of spectators. The event is sponsored by the Bourbon St. Complex. the Conch Republic Naval Parade and Great Battle, a free-for-all that pits sea dogs, wenches and Conch Republic military might against the evil federal forces. Sponsored by the republics flagship Schooner Wolf, the maritime mayhem begins at 7 p.m. Friday, April 27, in the waters of the Key West Bight. Spectators can watch from the Ocean Key Resort & Spa, Zero Duval St., or from any of the restaurants outdoor bars overlooking the Key West Historic Seaport. Avictory party will be held at the Schooner Wharf Bar following the battle. the Bourbon Street Complex Conch Republic Red Ribbon Bed Race 2-5 p.m. Saturday, April 28.

Thats when the Keys Chorale performs their spring special, which theyve dubbed Five Centuries of Music of the 50s. Only, this collection will include songs from the 1550s, 1650s, 1750s, 1850s and the 1950s. Fats Domino was big man on the pop charts for much of the 1950s. But, so were Elvis Presley and even Hank Williams. We doubt the Chorale will attempt much from the Hank Williams songbook, but we suspect some of the other greats from that era may be represented. And who knows what Renaissance delights await from the 1550s or opera pieces from the 1650s? Maybe some Vivaldi? By 1750, music historians mark the end of the Baroque era and Johann Sebatian Bachs Chorale Preludes are nearly completed (Bach died in July, 1750, so some of his work was published posthumously). To learn more, attend the concert, which begins at 8 p.m. April 13. Tickets cost $20 for general admission; $30 for reserved orchestra seats. To order, vist: www.keystix.com. Dean Walters, director of the Keys Chorale, said the selections for this years concert will include doo-wop tunes and other oldies. Heres a fun look at the top ten songs that made the charts in 1950 (not necessarily on the Chorales program, but interesting and diverse nonetheless): 1950 1. The Fat Man Fats Domino 2. Please Send Me Someone To Love Percy Mayfield 3. Teardrops From My Eyes Ruth Brown 4. Mona Lisa Nat King Cole 5. Tennessee Waltz Patti Page 6. Long Gone Lonesome Blues Hank Williams 7. Mardi Gras In New Orleans Professor Longhair 8. Im MovinOn Hank Snow 9. RollinStone Muddy Waters 10. Double Crossing Blues Johnny Otis (Little Esther & the Robins) By 1957, when Im Walkin was a chart topper, musical tastes had evolved. And to cite the song made famous by rocker Jerry Lee Lewis, there was a Whole Lot of Shakin Going On. The April 13 concert at the Tennessee Williams Fine Arts Theatre replaces the Chorales popular Concert Under the Stars engagements, which ran for 15 years and features various eras from the American songbook. However, due to the enormous increases in costs associated with producing an outdoor concert, Walters said, the Chorale has now combined its March and April concerts into one, and brought it inside to the Tennessee Williams Theatre. This years spring 2012 presentation will be Five Centuries of Music from the 50s (1550, 1650, 1750, 1850, and 1950). History and fun, all rolled into one terrific evening.
