Councilman Ted Blackburn agreed. Islamorada will be sending its wastewater to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District's facility at mile marker 100.5 instead of building its own treatment plants. Blackburn said creating the district will give Islamorada more of a seat at the table with Key Largo going forward. An independent district in Islamorada would also free up the Village Council to discuss other matters that need attention, Blackburn said. "There's no way we can discuss wastewater and whatever else is going on in the village," he said. Mayor Michael Reckwerdt said he was against the idea because he feels the council should remain in the decision process regarding wastewater. But Councilmen Don Achenberg, Dave Purdo and Vice Mayor Ken Philipson said they are willing to consider the proposal. "I am in the middle, but I would like to discuss it further," Achenberg said. "I am not against [an independent wastewater district] if it is presented to us in the right way," Purdo said. Makepeace said he would make a report on the benefits of creating a wastewater district at the May 10 Village Council meeting. Legal settlementThe Village Council last Thursday also agreed on a settlement with Jacksonvillebased WPC Industrial Con-Governor approves $50M for Keys wastewater projects.

Wiatt was recognized last year as a finalist for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship Program. She earned a $5,000 scholarship over four years that she'll put to use at the University of Florida, starting this fall. And this past Friday Wiatt received word she'll be recognized for her athletic achievements as a member of the Dolphins'crosscountry, soccer and tennis teams.

Impasse over Studios'rentBoard members of The Studios of Key West are hoping for the best but planning for the worst as the future of their lease of the historic armory at 600 White Street is uncertain. The building is owned by the state of Florida and managed by the Historic Florida Keys Foundation, which was established in 1972 and manages the armory, Old City Hall on Greene Street, the Harry S. Truman Little White House and the Oldest House on Duval Street. Although under a 10-year lease valid until 2018, The Studios of Key West may have to move their operation elsewhere as soon as July 1, if they can't negotiate a reduction on their annual rent, which is increasing to $143,204.Studios officials say they can only afford $116,244 per year. And Executive Director Jay Scott said there aren't any planned meetings between the two sides at this point."We've put a proposal to the Historic Florida Keys Foundation and they put a proposal to us," he said. "They rejected our proposal and we rejected their proposal. We have two and a half months to resolve the issue. There are no scheduled negotiations at this time, but our organization would always be willing to listen." The new rental rate is based on a $20.30 per square-foot rate that corresponds to rent being paid by the Key West Chamber of Commerce, which occupies the first floor of Old City Hall. Foundation board Chair Melissa Kendrick said her group is a big supporter of The Studios, particularly considering the base rent agreed to in the original lease is for $27 per square foot, meaning over the 10 year life of the lease and factoring in the new rate, the foundation would reduce The Studios outlay by more than $461,000."At some point we have to be able to say The Studios is in a position where they have to be able to carry on. We're hoping they can right the ship. We can't indefinitely go on like this and say we need more time, need more time. The folks at The Studios have to rise to the occasion and do what has to be done to save their organization." The Studios board of directors met on Monday and "is working to explore our options," Scott said, adding that no particular alternate location had been identified.Official says negotiations have stalledBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,April 18,2012 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.8675 THURS.8675 FRI.8675 SAT.8675 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers.

Wiatt told the Keynoter she filled out an application for the award long ago, but only now received word she made the team. Applicants must have at least a 3.5 grade point average and earn varsity letter in at least two different sports in their junior and senior years.Wiatt is racking up honors, having received a fulltuition scholarship to UF on a John V. Lombardi Scholarship, honoring the former university president. She plans a career in bio-medical engineering. Wiatt will also be studying ecology and Spanish abroad this summer in Merida, Mexico, the capital city in Mexico's Yucatan region. That program is paid for through her scholarship.Wiatt's coaches gushed over her positive attitude, dedication and leadership skills in every sport. Soccer coach Lynn Landry has had Wiatt on his teams for the past five seasons at Marathon High. "She's been a joy," he said. "She mostly played outside [midfielder] and being that she was a cross-country runner she always had the legs to play there. You have to be in good shape to do that the way we play."Tennis coach Chris Bull is a friend of the family and has known Wiatt for nearly 10 years. "It's been fun to watch her grow up. We've seen her develop through the years and the one thing that really helped us this year was the leadership quality. When we needed to do something as a team, I'd say, Marina, I need the team to do this,'and I knew it would get done."Bull said Wiatt is "kind and welcoming, but she also has some wicked humor." "She didn't choose to concentrate on one sport so when she's in that season she gives it 100 percent. She has success written all over her and has a lot of great traits that are going to serve her well in the future," he said. Cross-country coach Mike Lettau called Wiatt a "motivated" and "positive" person. "She never missed practice and she was dedicated. I think it rubs off on people; the kids respect Marina Kay," he said. Scholar wins top accoladesFrom Wiatt,1Aclerk post. All Republicans, they are: Matt Gardi, information systems director for the State Attorney's Office; Amy Heavilin, finance director for the Sheriff's Office; Stuart Kessler, chairman of the school system's Audit and Finance Committee; and Kevin Madok, a former Layton City Council member and Kolhage's assistant finance director.Five former and current Sheriff's Office employees are vying to take over for retiring Sheriff Bob Peryam after his one term in office. The candidates are: Jake Brady, a 23-year agency veteran; Ed Grove, a State Attorney's Office investigator and five-year deputy; Matthew Koval, a Tavernier-based deputy since 1981; Thomas Peteck, a 24-year deputy; and Rick Ramsay, Peryam's number two and the under sheriff for the past eight years. In the running to replace Harry Sawyer, the retiring supervisor of elections, are Deputy Supervisor of Elections Joyce Griffin, a 28-year agency employee, and Barry Gibson, a former one-term Key West city commissioner. Five-term incumbent Andy Griffiths last week drew two challengers for his District 2 School Board seat; they are Yvette MiraTalbott, a Key West native who has a daughter in the schools system, and Howard Hubbard, a retired attorney and an unsuccessful candidate for Florida Keys Mosquito Control District Board seat.The most crowded race to date got another candidate Monday with the surprise announcement that Sloan Bashinsky would run for the District 3 School Board seat being vacated by Duncan Mathewson after two terms.Bashinsky, of Little Torch Key, tells supporters he takes his cues from angels and has run for public office numerous times, never winning. Also running in the District 3 non-partisan race: Michael Cunningham, executive director of the Florida Keys Area Health Education Center in Marathon; Ed Davidson, a longtime schools fiscal watchdog and dive shop/hotel owner; Larry Murray, a former member of the School District's Audit and Finance Committee; retired Chicago-area attorney Mark Peterson; and John Welsh, former principal of Key West High School. Three are vying to replace District 1 Florida Keys Mosquito Control Commissioner Joan Lord Papy, a 20year incumbent. They are: Jillian Cranney-Gage, an accountant for the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority; Maggie Gutierrez, an attorney for the Public Defender's Office; and Oliver Kofoid, who works at Key West's wasterwater treatment facility.Incumbent District 3 Mosquito Control District Commissioner Steve Smith has two challengers in Timothy Root, a Key West Planning Board member, and Stephen Hammond, a real estate agent.Incumbent Bill Shawn has not drawn a challenger for the District 4 bug board seat.Election season starts earlyFrom Candidates,1A Photo courtesy Cindy Durkin BullMarathon High School senior Marina Kay Wiatt is one of 12 female student-athletes named to the 2012 Florida High School Athletic Association Ronald N.Davis Academic All-State Team. Familiarnames surface formanagersearchWith receipt of a final batch of applications on Friday, there are now 79 candidates vying to become the next Key West city manager, included among them Julio Avael III, whose namesake father held the post for more than a decade. The elder Avael, who unsuccessfully ran for the District 3 Key West City Commission seat won by Commissioner Tony Yaniz, held the post for 11 years ending in 2007, when current City Manager Jim Scholl came on board. Avael III is the president of Miami-based NonViolence Project USAInc., a case management and mental health organization. In Key West, he worked as a sales associate and trainer for Historic Tours of America from 1998 to 2000. Also among the latest round of applicants is Margaret Romero, a native Conch who unsuccessfully challenged Mayor Craig Cates in the Oct. 2011 citywide election and is a regular during public comment portions of commission and Monroe County School Board meetings. Romero, now retired, worked professionally as an executive consultant for IBM.Scholl, who earns $180,000 per year, announced in January he would not seek to renew his contract, which expires on July 1.Two other familiar faces in the Florida Keys have applied to replace Scholl: Bernard Lapira, the village manager in Islamorada from 2003 to 2006, who now lives now in Old Fort, N.C.; and Ken Davis, an Islamoradabased Department of Defense contractor, who spent time on the ground in Iraq and ran unsuccessfully for Monroe County sheriff in 2008.Aseven-member search committee appointed by the Key West City Commission will winnow the list to four or five finalists by May 17. On June 1, there's a planned public reception for the candidates, followed by interviews with the City Commission on June 2 and selection at a special commission meeting on June 4.Final tally of resumes stands at 79By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST KEY WESTLease rates variedThe Studios of Key West,occupying the historic armory at 600 White St.,has a 10-year lease for the building,which is owned by the state of Florida and managed by the non-profit Historic Florida Keys Foundation.When the lease was signed in 2008,annual rent was $190,000 (paid by the Rodell Foundation).In 2009 and 2010,with Rodell no longer in the picture,the Foundation reduced the rent to $84,528 per year. On July 1,2011,the rent increased,via lease amendment,by $52,830 to $137,358. In an effort to agree on a fair monthly rental price reflective of the current real estate market both sides engaged two appraisers to analyze annual rent ratess;those figures,based on a yearlong lease,are $94,500 and $138,000. Studios'officials suggested to the Foundation they split the difference a rental rate of $116,244 per year;the Foundation wants $143,500. State clarifies airport management limitsMarathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay says he's a lot more comfortable with the possibility of private management at Florida Keys Marathon Airport since the state Department of Transportation clarified a few points. In a March 28 e-mail to Monroe County Airports Director Peter Horton, DOT Programs Administrator Dionne Richardson made it clear the Middle Keys airfield owned by the county "cannot be managed by a fixed base operator or have any affiliation with a fixed base operator." Fixed base operators, or FBOs, are businesses located at airports that provide services for general aviation aircraft including hangar space, fuel, flight training and maintenance. The county's Marathon airport manager Reggie Paros is retiring in June and County Administrator Roman Gastesi floated private management as a cost savings. The County Commission last month gave Gastesi the go-ahead to explore the idea. Arequest for proposals is in the works, which Gastesi said Marathon officials would have an opportunity to review. Marathon Jet Center and Marathon General Aviation are the two FBOs in Marathon. Bill Ehrhorn owns the Jet Center and is general manager at General Aviation. "I think it potentially creates all kinds of questions that the manager is doing things that could benefit their FBO," Ramsay said. "My interpretation of what came down from DOTis they're interested in making sure there's no potential conflict of interest." Richardson made three other points clear in the email to Horton: The county must maintain full control of the airport. Private management can run day-to-day operations, but oversight lies with Monroe. Adecision to privatize must be coordinated with the Federal Aviation Administration. The state DOT's Aviation Office must be notified of any changes in management at the airport. County manager says proposals in draft stageBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

The village sued the companies in 2008 over problems, including system failures, with the first phase of the Plantation Key sewer system. The village agreed to the defendants'$1.075 million offer. In return, representatives of the village government can only respond "no comment" when asked about the defendants. The village also agreed to pay WPC $545,000 for work the company completed on the second phase of the sewer project. Islamorada had been holding the money because WPC did not finish the project by a 2009 deadline. Commercial spaceThe Village Council also voted last Thursday to increase the amount of commercial building space it may allocate by 16,486 square feet for 2012. This brings the total amount of available commercial building space for this year to 29,846 square feet. The additional space is needed if developer Net5 FDAgoes through with a proposed Winn Dixie supermarket at mile marker 81. The Village Council approved a site plan for the project last year, but gave the available commercial building space to a museum and conference room project at the Islander Resort named after Keys historian Ervin Eyster.It is unclear if Net5 FDA still intends on building the supermarket. The village is still waiting on paperwork to be filed by the developer. In the meantime, Publix confirmed earlier this month that it wants to build a supermarket at mile marker 82. Council expands commercial spaceFrom Sewers,1A Crew walks away from plane crashTwo Tavernier men crawled over mangrove roots to reach safety Friday after a vintage private airplane crashed near Tavernier Creek.Brett Ekblom, piloting the yellow 1946 Piper Cub, and passenger Mike Strutton both survived "unharmed," according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The aircraft "lost lift" soon after taking off from the private Tavernaero airstrip on the north end of Plantation Key, Ekblom told officers. "They immediately turned back toward the airstrip," said Officer Bobby Dube, an FWC spokesman. "As they attempted to turn around, the plane continued to descend and made a crash landing into the mangroves." The aircraft went down about 4:30 p.m. in a wooded area on Plantation Key, west of Sunshine Boulevard and about 50 yards from Tavernier Creek.The plane ended up dangling nose down among the dense stand of mangrove trees.Ekblom, president of Native Construction Contracting and a lifetime resident of the Keys, and Strutton were picked up and taken back to the airstrip.Attempts to salvage the aircraft wreckage are planned, Dube said.Reports of the plane going down brought response from several rescue agencies, including the FWC, the U.S. Coast Guard, Monroe County Sheriff's Office and Tavernier Fire-Rescue.AVIATIONU.S.Coast Guard photoA small Piper Cub aircraft,built 66 years ago,hangs nose-down among mangroves off Tavernier Creek after a Friday crash.Pilot Brett Ekblom and passenger Mike Strutton,both Tavernier residents,escaped without injuries,according to reports.

All types of critters get caught in the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and U.S. Department of Agriculture traps, set periodically on the Middle Keys island since 2007.That includes raccoons, which, over the past year, have been a blessing in disguise for the FWC and the state Department of Health. The agencies are in the midst of a statewide study investigating the spread of a roundworm called baylisascaris procyonis found in raccoon feces.FWC veterinarian Dan Wolf said he's in charge of performing necropsies on 20 to 30 raccoons from each of Florida's 67 counties. He said 28 raccoons from Monroe have been tested. They were caught in the rat traps. "It's in the early stages of a study. Mainly we're getting them from road kill or rehabilitators that have raccoons that don't make it," he said. "Normally we get them secondhand. In this study here, they just happened to be catching them and got some and brought them up to us."Mark Cunningham, another FWC veterinarian, said no roundworm was found in Monroe County. The study, part of a nationwide effort, is being done because baylisascaris procyonis has been found in Florida."There is the nationwide study we are participating in, and then there is our Florida study, which is more detailed," Cunningham said. "Historically, raccoon roundworm has been rare in the southeast and had not been detected in Florida until recently. The findings in Florida were case reports and there has never been a comprehensive statewide survey here thus the rationale for the study that is currently under way."Danielle Stanek, a medical epidemiologist with the state Department of Health, said there have been no cases "anywhere in Florida since the parasite was identified here."Stanek explained that roundworm eggs in raccoon feces are not immediately infectious to people."It takes at least 11 days in the environment for the eggs to become infectious to people. People can be infected if they accidentally ingest feces or soil or other material contaminated with raccoon feces," she said.Stanek said "good hand washing and thoroughly washing and rinsing any toys or other objects that may have been in contact with infected feces or contaminated soil [or] other material will prevent accidental ingestion."Stanek emphasized that infections in humans are rare, but are "often very serious and can be fatal." She said signs and symptoms might include nausea, tiredness, liver enlargement, loss of coordination, lack of attention to people and surroundings, loss of muscle control, blindness and coma.Roundworm is found in Sunshine StateBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comGRASSY KEYKeynoter Staff

Might the newest quarterback with the New York Jets take a Jet Ski through Key West Harbor? All manner of Florida Keys scenarios became possible Friday when a couple identified as having Keys ties put in a winning charity bid of $100,000 for a day with the Heisman-winning Tebow. The bid and the donors are real, executives of the Tim Tebow Foundation told the Jacksonville Times-Union Tebow's hometown newspaper. "She felt that bringing Timmy to her town down there would maybe change the town," foundation executive director Erik Dellenback told the Times-Union "They live in a part of town that has a lot of people in need and a lot of people with a lot of wealth," Delleback said. "She cleared it with Timmy and it sounds like she's going to have a little event where she brings some of the kids who are in need and some of the kids who are deserving." "We'd prefer not to say who they are but they have a place in the Keys, which is where he's going to go," Dellenback told Times-Union .Any further information is being closely held. Whether the donors hail from Key West or Key Largo or somewhere in between remains unrevealed. "We've heard some rumors, but there is nothing concrete. Right now, they're still anonymous," said Javier Garrido, former president of the Key West Gator Club and current South Florida regional vice president for the University of Florida Athletic Association. "It would be quite an honor to work in a charitable endeavor with Tim Tebow," said Key West Gator Club President Greg Oropeza. Paul Turick, co-founder of the Florida Keys Gator Club, agreed, "That would be wonderful if Tim Tebow came down this way and we had an opportunity to meet him. He has a way of touching everyone he meets." Arguably the most celebrated athlete to hail from the University of Florida, Tebow helped the Gators win two NCAAfootball championships and received the 2007 Heisman Trophy as college football's top player. He was a first-round NFLdraft pick of the Denver Broncos, and traded to the Jets this winter. FLORIDA KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

The proposed law apparently would not create hardships for cruising sailors or liveaboards, said Charmaine Smith Ladd, a Marathon resident who serves as executive director of the Boaters'Anchoring Rights and Responsibilities group. County commissioners and county staff "have been just great," Ladd said. "It's been an excellent process."The ordinance was crafted by Rich Jones, the county's senior administrator of Marine Resources, under authorization of a state pilot program to manage areas outside existing mooring fields.County Commissioners and Jones "are trying to do things in a way that could work, without alienating liveaboards or cruisers," Ladd said. "Alot of the people that landlubbers complain about are the same people that we [boaters] complain about," Ladd said. "Most boaters want to do the right thing, but not everybody who stays on a boat is a boater."Under a state pilot program passed by the Florida Legislature in 2009, Monroe County is one of five Florida coastal areas allowed to draft new anchoring rules on a test basis to cover stationary vessels outside existing mooring zones.When the issue first surfaced, many Keys boaters were wary, Ladd said."There was some confusion for a while because there was a lot going on with raising [marina and mooring] rates and different things," Ladd said. She credited Jones and county commissioners for listening and responding to boaters'issues. As proposed, the county draft ordinance:Designates "managed anchoring zones" at Sunset Cove off Key Largo, in the Lower Keys at Boca Chica Basin, Cow Key Channel and Key West Harbor; and in Boot Key Harbor and Sister Creek.Requires proof of a vessel sewage pumpout, with the county working toward providing free or low-cost pumpout facilities;Requires a free vesselsafety check from the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary; andBans "floating structures" with some exceptions for active commercial enterprises.The ordinance is to be called around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday by the commission, meeting at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.Pilot program comes back to BOCC for voteMONROE COUNTY1,500 runners compete in runMarathon's 31st annual Seven Mile Bridge Run kicks off Saturday when runners from across the country line up to compete in the popular event. This if the first year organizers accepted runner applications through the race website only. They were processed by mail the oldfashioned way for the first three decades. Co-organizer Ginger Sayer told the Keynoter that while a number of prospective runners voiced concern with the application process, it was a much more efficient way to handle the process. "We always upset somebody. If we could we'd take 5,000 people, but we can't. When you have something that has a small field ,you're going to disappoint people. It's disheartening," she said. Sayer said runners in the past would overnight a selfaddressed stamped envelope at the earliest opportunity. Race organizers would express mail an application back to the runner, who would then fill it out and pay to overnight it again in order to make the cut. The best part about the switch to web-only applications "it was certainly a lot greener," Sayer said. "There were stacks of express envelopes we had to turn back because we took the top ones and once you hit that magic 1,500 number you have to return to the sender. People would have almost $40 [invested] in being turned down." Runners can pick up prerace packets between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday at the Holiday Inn Express, 13201 Overseas Hwy., Marathon. The Marathon High Culinary Arts program will host a pasta dinner at Catch 53 Ocean Bar and Grill at the hotel. On race day, Sayer said runners will go through 14 cases of bananas, 18 cases of 100-count oranges and at least 1,600 bottles of water. Runners and volunteers will also receive one of roughly 2,600 T-shirts ordered for the event. Sayer said $49,000 was raised in last year's race alone; $34,000 of that went to the athletic department and various sports teams at Marathon High. In it's first 30 years, the bridge run has raised-conservatively-over $500,000, she added. "And all of it stays right here in the Keys," Sayer said. The race is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. The bridge will be closed to traffic from 6:45 a.m. until 9 a.m. Anyone with early flights out of Miami should leave the Lower Keys and Key West extra early. Also, on Saturday, the Upper Keys will have bicyclists traveling along the Overseas Highway as part of a two-day race.Race kicks off Saturday at 7:30 a.m.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSEVEN MILE BRIDGECongressional race draws big fieldPolitical watchers gathered in Key West on Monday had the opportunity to hear from three candidates who want to represent the Florida Keys in the U.S. House of Representatives. Two of them have homes in the Keys, which has been represented by Miami's U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (RMiami) for the past decade. Redrawn congressional district maps (a process done once every 10 years following the census count), move Monroe County into a new congressional district 26 that will include parts of Collier and Miami-Dade counties.The two vying from the Keys: Republican Douglas Walker of Shark Key, former owner of Oceanside Marina (now King's Pointe Marina) on Stock Island; and Independent Jose Peixote of Key Largo. Broward County Democrat Gloria Romero Roses, a native of Colombia and political newcomer, cast herself as an "outsider," in brief comments."That's fundamentally why I'm doing this because I'm an outsider. Washington needs to be made up of people like us."Three others planning to compete for the congressional seat did not attend.Walker touted his business experience and emphasized the need to reform campaign finance and lobbying laws."I have created jobs for the last 45 years," Walker said. "We can do it if we can get control of our regulators. We need a real plan and common sense and we're just not getting that from Washington."Walker, a Republican, owns Penn-Mar Castings in Hanover, Pa. Also running for the new district 26 seat is Miami Republican David Rivera, the target of state and federal inquiries into his personal and campaign finances. He did not attend Monday's candidate forum, which was hosted by Hometown! Political Action Committee. Peixto said immigration and immigrants were "big problems" in the Keys: "We have to stop letting them get all the government money. They want everything for free. We've got to stop that." As he was taking the stage Monday night, he drew surprised looks when he pitched an empty plastic cup into the bushes outside of Salute restaurant, which hosted the forum on Higgs Beach. The crowd was so large, most attending had to stand outside the enclosed area and listen to the speakers on stage inside. Other candidates for Congress are Justin Sternad, a Democrat from Cutler Bay, and Erik Borgstrom, a Largo Republican.Democrat Ron Saunders, the long-time Keys representative in the Florida House, was on hand Monday to discuss his candidacy for Florida Senate District 39, currently held by the outgoing Sen. Larcenia Bullard (D-Miami).Also vying for that seat are Bullard's son Dwight and James Bush III, the Miamibased Democrat currently representing District 109 in the state House."We have not had a senator from Monroe County in over 40 years," Saunders said. "[Bullard] has not shown a lot of attention to the Keys."Some familiar faces are in the running for Saunder's soon-to-be-available District 120 House seat.Former two-term Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson, who lost to Saunders in 2010, is taking a second shot."We need to challenge our future," he said. "We need to reboot, rebuilt and rebalance." He spoke specifically about the need to create a public insurance program to replace Citizens Property Insurance Corp. Saunder's legislative aid Holly Merrill Raschein, a Republican, described herself as "socially moderate, fiscally conservative.""I know how to solve issues, I know how to help people and I've been doing it behind-thescenes for 10 years. I am committed to this community."The other District 120 candidate is Democrat Henry Rosenthal, former Islamorada Chamber of Commerce president and former unsuccessful candidate for the Monroe County Commission.He said he had the experience to address problems, for which he gave the Keys-specific examples of wastewater, insurance rates and nearshore water quality.Two Keys men among hopefuls to announceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comELECTION 2012 By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comMonroe County is one of five Florida coastal areas allowed to draft new anchoring rules.

EDITORIALFEMA carries a big stickGUEST COLUMN LETTERS TO THE EDITOROn behalf of The Studios of Key West, I want to clarify two statements made in (recent newspaper articles) regarding TSKW's lease with the Historic Florida Keys Foundation (HFKF).Statement 1:Melissa Kendrick, board chair of HFKF, claims that TSKWis diverting revenue to a separate nonprofit. TSKWestablished the "Artist Residencies at Key West" as the holding company for the Ashe Street Residency Cottages (property that was gifted to TSKWby the Rodel Foundation). As part of TSKW's cultural program, these cottages are used to host artists from all over the world for onemonth residencies. The Artist Residency Program is an essential ingredient to the future of TSKW. This program will increase the diversity and quality of our workshops, exhibitions, and performances for mayyears to come. TSKWasks residency artists to present a workshop or some type of program for the community, in exchange for this residency. Because it is an exchange, the artist does not receive payment. Instead, a portion of income generated from the program is allocated for the maintenance, insurance and utilities of the Ashe Street Cottages. It is in this way that the residency program is able to sustain itself financially. Some artists also have an exhibition at TSKWwhile they are in residence. Normally, the commission for artwork sold is 60 percent to the artist and 40 percent to TSKW. The commission for exhibiting residency artists is still 40 percent to TSKW, 40 percent to the artist, and 20 percent to the Artist Residency Program.Statement 2:Melissa Kendrick also stated, "I think we have supported The Studios, but I don't think the foundation is the only one who should be supporting it." HFKF is one of our key supporters, a group that also includes 125 business sponsors, 550 members and patrons, and thousands of people who participate in our programs. TSKWis a fiscally sound and responsible organization. Our books are open and we will answer any questions regarding our finances. If our organization is charged rent at a fair market rate, we have proven that we can balance our revenue and expenses. We are simply asking the HFKF to agree to a fair market rent that will allow TSKWto stay at the Armory and continue to provide quality programs for our community. Rosi Ware TSKWBoard Chair Key WestLaw that expedites development permits puts flood insurance at riskTalk about unintended consequences. Legislation pushed through the Florida House and Senate designed to make it easier for developers to get building permits now threatens to undercut federal flood insurance in the state. The Federal Emergency Management Agency Region IV, headquartered in Atlanta, notified Florida Gov. Rick Scott the law awaiting his signature conflicts with FEMAregulations.The bill in question (HB 503) prohibits "a local government from conditioning the approval for a development permit, after July 1, 2012, on an applicant obtaining a permit or approval from any other state or federal agency."As reported in Saturday's Keynoter, FEMAofficials warn that implementing the law could result in Florida being suspended from federal flood insurance participation.And, friends, that's a big club to wield. There are 459 communities in Florida enrolled in the national flood insurance program, which holds $471 billion worth of coverage on homes and businesses. Governor, the ball's back in your court. This is one where your famous veto pen can save all of us a lot of sleepless nights. Keys owes Popham a big round of thanksTo define the value of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council, look no further than Marathon Boat Yard owner Bruce Popham. Popham, chairman of the 20-seat panel for the last seven years, was expected to step down as chairman at the council's Tuesday meeting."I hope I brought some value to the community, to the sanctuary staff and to the resource," Popham said earlier.There can be no doubt of that. Popham serves as an exemplar of why the Sanctuary Advisory Council was established in the first place as a bridge between people who rely on Florida Keys waters for their recreation and livelihood, and those charged with ensuring the marine ecosystem's survival.As a member of the commercial Middle Keys Marine Association, Popham advises sanctuary staff on ramifications of its management decisions on waterfront enterprises that employ hundreds and serve thousands.In turn, he helps business owners understand the background behind sanctuary decisions. As Popham describes it: "Bringing a business perspective to operation of the sanctuary, and relating things [to business owners] on the value of resource in hard dollars. Both are critical."The good news is that the new council chairman widely expected to be coral-restoration expert Ken Nedimyer, himself a businessman will carry on the estimable work of former chairs, starting with the first, the late environmental icon George M. Barley Jr., through Monroe County Commissioner George Neugent.Equally reassuring is that Popham will retain a marine-industry seat on the advisory council. Studios residency funding is an open book' Studios has invested muchIn our opinion, not accepting The Studios Key West offer to pay $9,800 monthly as opposed to $11,400 does not make economic sense. As the owners of Harrison Gallery on White Street since 1986, we have a fairly good idea of the commercial realities in this part of town. There are very few actually, we can think of no prospective tenants that would be interested in renting a space of that unique size without completely altering the historical structure. Prior to TSKW, (the Armory) was occupied by a youth gymnastic program that paid considerably less (rent). If the building becomes vacant for even three months, it would take more than a year-and-a-half to recoup the difference. And, quite frankly, three months is, in our minds, being overly optimistic. What other tenant could possibly benefit the community as much as TSKW, who have not only made material improvements to the building, they have also invested their time and hearts into making this town a better place for locals and tourists alike? They are an invaluable asset. Please reconsider. Ben and Helen Harrison Harrison Gallery Key WestStudios raises cultural barPlease accept The Studios of Key West's proposal to pay a fair market rent (as established by the two fair market rent appraisals recently conducted) for the Historic Armory building for the duration of their lease. As a resident of Key West for 14 years, the Studios of Key West has some of the best to offer in Key West culture and improves the quality of life for both tourists here and residents. June Babineau Key WestThanks for serving cityLast night while having some liquid refreshments at one of my favorite establishments of higher learning here in Marathon, some of my fellow Mensa members and I were discussing politics. The subject finally got around to our locally elected officials. The point was brought up about how much our city council members get paid for the little time they devote to our city only two meetings a month, two or three hours each, for $18,000 a year per member. I must admit that I thought the same thing until over four years ago when I became a board member of a 200-unit condo. Of course, my situation is on a much less significant scale, but it gave me insight to what it takes to be in a position of responsibility. So, I quickly pointed out to my fellow imbibers that it's not just the two meetings a month. It's the hours and hours of research on various topics to prepare for those meetings. It's the hours and hours of phone calls and emails each and every month. It's having to attend other city functions when they'd much rather be spending time at home with family or friends. It's losing friends over decisions they make on what they feel is in the best interests of the majority. And, finally, it's getting criticized and seldom praised for the work they do and the time it takes to do it. Do we agree with every decision they make? Absolutely not, and we probably never will. But, whether we like them or dislike them personally, we should at least respect them for their dedication to our great city and the efforts they all make on our behalf, especially on the many complex issues facing us today. So, kudos to all past and present city council members, and consider this the praise you get too little of, but is well deserved. Thank you for your service to our community. Dave Scott MarathonUgly won't draw visitorsAs a former resident of the beautiful Florida Keys I am still puzzled when I travel through Marathon as to why they have not taken it upon themselves to present their city in a nicer way than what we now see as we drive along U.S. 1?Eyesore after eyesore and an airport that desperately needs landscaping and a serious sprucing up. There are some lovely aspects, certainly, like Key Colony and the beautiful park with the tennis courts, but these are not visible to the thousands who drive through Marathon and have no interest in stopping because there is just no appeal to most of it. Alot of landscaping, palms, uplifting of the medians and some upgraded appeal of all the retail would make a huge difference and certainly would encourage many on the roads to stop and visit and spend. Frank Simmons Delray Beach, FlThanks for longtime supportThe Florida Keys Wild Bird Center (FKWBC) would like to recognize and extend special thanks to Gilbert's Resort of Key Largo for hosting a Friday night fundraiser for us March 30. Gilbert's has been a longtime supporter of our feathered friends. FKWBC is a charitable non-profit organization, which relies on the generous donations of monetary support, and volunteer efforts and communityservice hours. Thanks for your continued support in "Keeping them flying." Joan Scholz Exec. Dir.Florida Keys Wild Bird Center Tavernier Governorapproves $50M bond forKeys sewersGov. Rick Scott approved Florida's $70 billion budget Tuesday, including the first down payment on $50 million in sewer funding for Keys wastewater projects.The news was greeted with hurrahs at county hall and at the Aqueduct Authority, which functions as the county's wastewater operator. "We did get the good news; the governor signed the bill," confirmed Monroe County Mayor David Rice. This means we'll be receiving the $50 million, which means the Governor's visit on May 8th will be a real celebration."Even though the Governor threatened to veto some $170 million in spending tagged as "turkeys" by TaxWatch, the $4.8 million to fund the first year's debt on $50 million in Keys sewer bonds made it through unscathed. 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's memory a Florida Cabinet has held a meeting in the Keys. "This has been a good run with everybody pulling together," Rice said, adding that a full court press by various Keys officials and even citizens during Florida Keys day in Tallahassee may have turned the tide. "It was quite a group effort by tons of people who took the time and money to go to Tallahassee and make the case," Rice said. Wednesday's meeting of the board of county commissioners will jump-start wastewater projects with seven resolutions dealing with advancing the estimated $156 million Cudjoe Regional sewer system. That's unincorporated Monroe's largest and last remaining unfinished sewer project. It covers roughly 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe Key through Big Pine Key. Rice said the first year's bond money $50 million will be divided up with $30 million earmarked for the county and $20 million earmarked for Islamorada. The Village's proposed $100 million sewer system is now viewed as partnering with the Key Largo Wastewater Taxing District's plant for treatment. Building the collection system and pipeline and lift stations to move wastewater to Key Largo represents the bulk of Islamorada's costs. Rice said the Aqueduct has been working on design anticipating the state would finally pony up the money promised. "We want to get a jump on this and get it moving," he said. Earlier, County Manager Roman Gastesi said "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." 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 on the November ballot to extend the tax beyond 2018. "This will finalize all the major projects in the Keys and we'll be just about fully sewered after these two projects," Gastesi said, referring to the village of Islamorada's proposed system. 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. In subsequent years, further wastewater funding under the state's pledge of $200 million will be divided differently, Rice said, adding "my hope is at the end, the money will be redistributed with Monroe County so that everyone will pay about the very same for sewers." "We survived the test," said state Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West). "The money was put in the budget by the Florida Legislature but we weren't sure what the governor would do," Saunders said. "We never got a clear message." The $50 million $30 million for Lower Keys systems and $20 million for Islamorada will go toward completing wastewater systems. "It's an important first step, but now we'd like to get some money for Marathon, Key Largo and Key West who already installed their systems," Saunders said. "There are still other needs, and would be good to give people a break on the higher rates they're paying."Budget signing triggers signs of celebrationBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY

The consumer price index climbed 0.3 percent as the cost of most goods and services rose, the Labor Department said in a report released April 13. The increase outstripped the rise in wages. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch expected a 0.2 percent increase in the cost of living. Prices rose for a wide variety of goods. Energy costs, for example, climbed 0.9 percent in March, though that was far smaller than February's 3.2 percent increase as gas prices eased. Aretreat in the price of oil from recent highs should offer a bit of additional relief to consumers, at least temporarily. Natural-gas prices rose for the first time in five months, but electricity costs dropped. The cost of food rose 0.2 percent last month after being unchanged in February. Meat, poultry, fish and eggs posted the biggest increases. Yet fruit and vegetable prices fell, as did the cost of dairy and baked goods. In the past year, consumer prices have risen an unadjusted 2.7 percent, but that's down from 2.9 percent in February. Excluding food and energy, the so-called core consumer price index climbed 0.2 percent in March and matched Wall Street's expectations. Prices for shelter rental units or homes and used autos spurred the increase. Prices for used vehicles jumped 1.3 percent after falling in each of the past six months. The cost of new cars and trucks, medical care, clothing and airfare also rose in March. Among the few things to fall in price were tobacco and liquor.Labor Dept. forecasts gas prices easingBy JEFFRY BARTASHMarketWatchECONOMY FREE Lunch FREE Gifts FREE Raffle FREE Entertainment FREE Exhibits FREE Demonstrations Annual Meeting & PicnicCORAL SHORES HIGH SCHOOLMM 89.9 Oceanside Saturday11 AM Registration Opens Live Musical Entertainment 1 PM Meeting Called to OrderRaffle to immediately follow 305.852.2431 800.858-8845 www.FKEC.com Keynote Speaker : Ileana Ros-LehtinenFKEC MEETING FREE & OPEN TO ALL CO-OP MEMBERS THE CITYOFKEYWESTCode Compliance HearingW ednesday April 18, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. for414 Louisa & 534 Grinnell All othercases will be heardW ednesday April 25, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. Old City Hall, 510 Greene StreetIt is the policy of the City of Key West to comply with all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Abreu single delivers win Michael Abreu singled to center field to drive in pinchrunner Andy Perez from second base with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and give the Key West High baseball team a come-frombehind 5-4 victory over Doral Academy last Saturday afternoon at Rex Weech Field. "I saw the outfielders playing deep and I was just trying to get a hit," Abreu said. The victory, which came less than 24 hours after a 7-0 no-hit victory over Coral Shores, improved the Conchs' record to 9-13 with two games left in the regular season. Key West has won five of its last six games. "Like I told the other players, it seems like we're coming back," said Abreu, who was on base four times. He also had an RBI single in the third and was hit twice by Doral pitcher Mark Hernandez. The Conchs scored single runs in five of the seven innings. In the first, starting pitcher Darren Miller tripled and scored on a ground-out by Chris Varela. In the second, Zack Hughes hit a popfly double that scored Matt Chelekis, who had singled and stolen second. Abreu's third-inning hit gave the Conchs a 3-1 lead, but Doral scored three against Milsler in the fourth, aided by two errors. Key West tied the game at 4-4 in the sixth when Steven Wells knocked in Abreu, who was hit by a pitch to open the inning. In the winning seventh, Miller hit a one-out single and was then forced out at second on a grounder to the shortstop by Varela. The shortstop fielded the ball right at the secondbase bag and then threw to first for what appeared to be an easy double play. The throw, though, was wild, and Varela was safe. Perez went in to run for Varela and got to second on an infield hit by Chris Garcia that set up Abreu as the star of the game. Garcia, in relief of Miller, held the Firebirds scoreless in the sixth and seventh to pick up the victory. The Conchs will close the regular season with a morning-night (10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.) doubleheader Saturday against Forest Hill. They will play Gulliver Prep on April 24 in the District 164Atournament at Founders Park in Tavernier, needing a victory to advance to the state playoffs.Conchs beat Doral 5-4 in photo finishBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL Keynoter Photo by BERT BUDDEThe ball is loose as Key West's Andy Perez dives for home plate past Doral Academy catcher Christian Hernandez to score the win ning run Saturday for the Conchs.Conch freshman pitches no-hitterAfreshman pitcher who tossed a no-hitter and a stingy Key West defense combined to shut down Coral Shores, 70, Friday in a District 16-4A clash in Islamorada. Brandon Presley, a lanky lefty, baffled the Hurricane lineup throughout the night game under the Founders Park lights. Coral Shores did not have a baserunner until the fifth inning the same inning Presley logged his the first of his five strikeouts. Presley retired the first 13 Cane batters, the streak ending on an infield error. Presley "has been outstanding for the JV, and he's been throwing extremely well," Conch head coach Miguel Menendez said. Menendez decided to start the youngster for varsity experience but was ready send in a reliever at the first sign of trouble. "He made that a moot point," Menendez said. The Conchs (9-13) got on the board with two runs in the one-hit third. Coral Shores sophomore starter Juan Casanova surrendered consecutive walks before Conch first baseman Hugo Valdes cracked an RBI double to bring in Chris Garcia. Michael Abreu scored off a Matt Chelekis fielder's choice. Key West then rang up five scores in the top of the sixth, helped along by three Hurricane errors, three walks and a passed ball. Garcia had the only hit of the stanza before Cane reliever Josh Sands got a strikeout to end the rally. Sands and Casanova reached on errors in the Hurricane fifth, with Sands advancing to third.

On Monday, Galvan signed with Lipscomb University, a private Christian college in Nashville, Tenn., becoming the first Key West High School girls soccer player to sign with a Division 1 college. Last week, she was on the verge of signing with Francis Marion University, of Florence, S.C., a school that also competes in Division 1 soccer. But the night before the scheduled signing, the Lipscomb coach called and said the school would fly her to Nashville. "As soon as I walked in there, I said, Yes,'said Galvan, who will get a $20,000 partial athletic scholarship. "The campus was beautiful. I met the team, they were so cool, and I met the coach, he's awesome." And so on Monday afternoon, at a ceremony before more than 50 teammates, family members and friends in a balloon-festooned classroom at Key West High, Galvan wearing white shorts, a black Lipscomb T-shirt and a big smile signed with the Bisons. "Today is a wonderful day for Key West High School and for Kendall," said athletic Ralph Henriquez, who served as master of ceremonies. Scott Paul, the Conch girls soccer coach, added, "You don't have to be at Gulliver or American Heritage to have your dream come true."Soccer midfielder signs with Div.1 LipscombBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCER Keynoter photo by BERT BUDDEKendall Galvan with her parents,George and Jean,after signing Monday to play soccer at Lipscomb University.

Brandon Joyce, who drew a leadoff walk in the bottom of the seventh, was Coral Shores'only other runner. Coral Shores "hit the ball," Menendez said, "but our guys made the plays." The Hurricanes, 13-9-1 heading into the South Florida Baseball Conference Tournament earlier this week, dropped an 11-3 decision to district power Gulliver Prep on April 11.

Coral Shores (10-3) takes on Palmetto (1-0) in the state District 25 Tournament, being played at George M. Barley Jr. Field in Tavernier. The winner advances to the title game at 7 p.m. Friday on the Coral Shores field. "Our girls have worked hard to make it a great season," head coach Mark Hall said. "Now we're excited to have the chance to play at home for what could be our third straight district championship," he said. "We'd love to have a lot of people in the stands." The Lady Canes won their last two district titles in a state club league; this will be the first try at a Florida High School Athletic Association trophy. Coral Shores needed a third overtime period Thursday to nail down their 10th win of the season, beating Cardinal Gibbons in a 14-13 road game. Junior attacker Julia Lozano scored seven goals for the Canes, and made the assist on the game-winner. The game was tied 1010 when regulation expired, and 13-13 after two required 3-minute overtimes. The first score in the third lacrosse OTends the match. With attacker Raisa Santiesteban forced off the field with a sore knee, Morgan Champagne took her spot on the offense. "Morgan turned out to be in the right place at the right time," Hall said. "Julia made a perfect feed and Morgan made a perfect shot over goalkeeper's shoulder." Jenn Doyle scored three goals and Kaitlyn O'Leary added two more. Katherine Hamer added a solo score in a game where every one counted big.

The last couple of days, multiple boats have come back to the dock with 15 to 20 sailfish flags flying. I said it a couple of weeks ago. The sailfish must migrate through the Keys to the Gulf waters to spawn so when they finally show up, it will be in full force. Due to the windy conditions of late, many charter Captains have been fishing in Florida Bay and the Everglades areas, where they're having great success with mangrove snapper and sea trout. When the winds subside by Wednesday evening, the reef bite will be excellent again for yellowtail, mutton and mangrove snapper. As we get closer to May, more and more muttons show up on the wrecks and rough bottom areas throughout the Keys, and they will bite aggressively. The dolphin bite will respond well to calming conditions as well, with plenty of schoolie size fish and increasing numbers of slammers in the catches. There are still plenty of permit providing great rodbending action on the wrecks and artificial reefs. These fish average 25 to 30 pounds. The windy conditions have turned the bridge waters a bit muddy. When they clear up, tarpon fishing will be back on track with the population growing day by day. Another excellent windy day alternative and just plain fun on any day is catch-andrelease fishing for sharks in Florida Bay. These shallow water areas hold massive numbers of lemon, blacktip, nurse, bonnet head and other species of shark. Battling a sixor sevenfoot toothy critter on light spin tackle is an adrenaline rush for even the most seasoned angler.The week's best Dave and Melanie Harmon enjoyed two days of fishing aboard the Pip's 36 with Capt. Howard Kelley and mate Neil Apley our of Captain Pip's Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. They brought back lots of nice early-season dolphin. During a guide trip with Apley on one of the Captain Pip's rental boats, Bob Ragotzkie and his daughter, Kim, released a gorgeous black grouper. Just a couple more weeks until that fella will be grouper dinner. In conjunction with CatchEm-All Charters, the SeaSquared hosted a school group from northwest North Carolina for two awesome days of fishing. The gang caught a mess of dolphin, yellowtail snapper and jack crevalle and also had some fun with sharks. We also fished Cindy and Mark Jarrell, from Charleston WV, for two days in Florida Bay where they caught limits of mangrove snapper and sea trout, including a pair of 23-inchers. We rounded out the week with some family fun fishing on the reef and a shark fishing adventure for the Bernhard clan, who released 18 large lemon sharks in a four-hour trip. Regulars Shirley and Bourke Lodewyk treated their granddaughter, Rachel, and her pal, Chad Walkowiat, from Kalamazoo MI, to a reef trip with Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of Geiger Key Marina. They had a nice catch of yellowtail snapper, and Chad released two black grouper. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moe's Custom Charters in Key West, spent the week battling tarpon large ones, small ones and every size in between. Mixed in were big yellowtails, mangroves, cero and Spanish mackerel, plenty of throw-back grouper, jacks and blue runners to keep his anglers busy. On the flats, Mottice's groups had a blast with barracudas, mackerel and sharks mostly blacktips and a few hammerheads that love to pull on the rods.Tarpon TournamentsSave the dates: May 3, 4 and 5 for the 46th Annual Marathon International Tarpon Tournament and May 12 and 13 for the 36th Annual Ladies Tarpon Tournament.

George thought about the many years of going to soccer and softball games, all the traveling, all his daughter's hard work, including rehabilitating a knee she seriously injured her junior year. "This is a huge thrill for me," he said. At Lipscomb, Galvan will play in the Atlantic Sun Conference, which includes Northern Florida, Stetson, Jacksonville and Florida Gulf Coast. Coach Kevin O'Brien, who took over the Bisons in February the team was 413-1 last fall talked about Galvan later Monday over the phone. "She's sweetnatured but you can tell she's a soccer junkie," he said. O'Brien, who viewed film on the Conch midfielder, added, "I like her work ethic and how she plays in transition. She's quick and tough and fits the mold of the kind of player I like." Galvan likely will fit in with Nashville's music scene.

Rick Scott allowed the controversial measure to become law without his signature. Scott's decision late last week could anger tea party members and some conservative groups that placed heavy pressure on him to veto the bill (HB 7117). But it effectively gives a victory to Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and lawmakers who say the state needs to take steps toward developing renewable fuels.In a letter explaining his move, Scott said he would allow the bill to become law in "deference" to Putnam's support for proposed tax credits. But Scott said he will analyze the results of the tax incentives and warned that he could push for a future repeal. "In considering this analysis, it is my goal to ensure that any investment on behalf of Florida taxpayers in renewable energy would afford them the kind of return they would expect of their tax dollars,''Scott wrote. "Absent clear documentation that the proposed tax credits have produced a sufficient return or provided significant cost savings for the state's taxpayers, I will request their repeal."Putnam issued a statement thanking Scott for his consideration of the bill, which the commissioner described as a step toward a "smart, longterm energy policy." "Rooted in common sense, this bill was developed to expand energy production in Florida and create muchneeded jobs for Floridians,'' Putnam said.But tea party members and conservative groups such as The Heartland Institute and Americans for Prosperity inundated Scott with calls to veto the bill, describing it as the "crony energy bill" that will raise costs for consumers."This energy bill is bad business, bad politics and bad for Florida's consumers,'' Slade O'Brien, state director of Americans for Prosperity, said earlier this week. "HB 7117 is the legislature's way of boosting up less competitive energy sources, at the increased cost to consumers and businesses." The bill passed overwhelmingly in the closing days of the legislative session, with only two senators and two House members opposing the final version. Putnam and House sponsor Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, described it as a modest proposal, with Plakon publicly calling it a "baby step." The 50-page bill deals with a number of energyrelated issues, including the repeal of a 2008 law that could have led to what is known as a "renewable portfolio standard." Such a standard, which was never put in place, could have forced electric utilities to increase reliance on renewable energy sources.But the series of tax incentives in the bill drew most of the attention. As an example, the state would provide up to $10 million a year in tax credits for costs associated with the production, distribution and storage of renewable fuels.The measure could help industries such as agriculture, with homegrown crops potentially used in producing fuels.Governor warns he may push for future repealFLORIDA NEWS SERVICEENVIRONMENT KEYSNET.COM LIVING BRIEFSVolunteers sought for bridge cleanupThe Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key is leading a cleanup of the bridge at Toms Harbor Channel, mile marker 60.6, and is looking for volunteers.

It can actually scare away qualified buyers and cause your home to linger on the market and eventually expose you to lowballing bargain hunters. The best strategy is to price your home competitively from the start.First check comparable sales in your area.Not only will buyers know the true market value of your home,but appraisers will too,and they play a big role in how much money the buyers lender will approve. Most home buyers do their initial house hunting online and price is the first thing they check. Make sure your home is priced competitively and looks good in your photos. When in doubt,go low.A lower priced home invites multiple offers and gives you room to negotiate for more money.Ask your REALTOR to help you find your homes truemarket value.

Pet custody growing in numberWhen couples break up, fighting over flat screens and wine collections is part of the process. But who gets the dog? Pet-custody issues figure into divorce more often now than even one generation ago. In a 2006 survey of the 1,600-member American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, nearly 25 percent of them reported noticing an increase in cases involving pets. It's a natural outgrowth of how societal attitudes toward animal companions have evolved: Our dogs and cats have moved from being considered extensions of the family to being part of the inner circle. "Forty years ago, people were attached to their pets, but they weren't considered members of the family in the way they are now," said Chris Johnson, a family-law attorney with the Minneapolis firm Best & Flanagan. Yet in the eyes of the law, your little Precious Paws is no different than that flat screen he's a piece of property that will be awarded to one side or the other, unless a shared-custody arrangement is made. "The law sees them as chattel, a piece of household goods, but people care so much about their pets that they're often willing to pay a huge amount to get them," said attorney Cathy Gorlin, also of Best & Flanagan. "People will cede $20,000 to a spouse, plus attorney fees, for a pet that could have been replaced for $500." But monetary value of a beloved animal is rarely the issue. Gorlin recalls a couple of cases that illustrate the wide variety of paths pet custody cases can take. In one, all the other separation of property was simple, but who got the Yorkie was a giant T-bone of contention. "There were issues about whether the dog was purchased by one party before or after the marriage, and whether it was a gift, because if a gift is given after marriage, it's marital property. Mom ended up paying Dad $15,000 to keep the dog, and it wasn't a young dog." People involved in a breakup can also use pets as tools of revenge. "In one case where the dog was used for breeding, mom was so mad at dad that while the dog was staying with her, she had it spayed," Gorlin said. Sometimes, breakups can actually benefit pets. Take Jake the Jack Russell terrier, who divides his time between Michael Abata of Minneapolis, who does consumer research for Target, and his ex, John Peterson, an engineer. The two got Jake from a rescue organization in 2006, then decided to go their separate ways a year later. Jake has been shuttling between the two for the past four years, according to the schedule on his very own Google calendar. "Jack Russells really need a lot of stimulation, so it keeps things more interesting for him," said Abata. "Plus it's good for us, because we can travel and go out more when the other one has him. Some people are actually jealous of it." Of course, that kind of arrangement depends on amicability between exes, which is not always possible. Marshall Tanick, Gorlin's husband, is a Minneapolis attorney who specializes in animal law. He has written about pet custody for dog magazines. "About 40 percent of households have pets, and 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, so it's fair to say that pet custody is potentially an issue in about 20 percent of households," he said. Ninety percent of cases involve dogs, 5 percent cats and 5 percent "other" a category that can get bizarre, such as a couple that had 30 ornate birds.They're often an acrimonious part of divorceMcClatchy-TribuneFAMILY LAW One minneapolis couple negotiated joint custody for a rescued Jack Russell terrier.
