And it has the search committee chair a bit upset. Shirley Freeman, former Monroe County Mayor and community activist, said she was disappointed that commissioners worked around the process to add more candidates.The fallout was quick. Andrew Mair, administrator of Merer County, N.J., dropped out of the running when he learned Key West commissioners overruled their own search process qualification, which mandated a minimum of five years of equivalent management experience.The committees shortlist of eight prospects, grew by four more after the commissioner weighed in on the process.Two of the four added candidates are well-known Keys residents, Margaret Romero and Ken Davis. Romero ran unsuccessfully for mayor last year, losing to incumbent Craig Cates. Davis ran unsuccessfully for Monroe County Sheriff four years ago, losing to Bob Peryam. The other two candidates added by commissioners are Paul Shew and Thaddeus Cohen.Cohen is former secretary for the Florida Department of Community Affairs and was an assistant city manager in Pensacola, Fl. Shew has extensive experience managing city and county governments in New York state, Massachusetts and Connecticut.With Mair dropping outSearch committee chair expresses disappointmentover commission moveBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST KEY WESTKeynoter Photo by BURT BUDDEJoseph Varela and his dad,Freddy,enjoy a quiet moment in the dugout at Marlins stadium in downtown Miami.Life throws many more pitches and punchesYou are Freddy Varela, assistant coach for the Key West High baseball team, and youre at Rex Weech Field this week, beneath the mid-April sun. AConch born to wear a uniform, youll be 45 soon, and after all the seasons as a fixture on orangedirt diamonds, you never imagined there could be one like this, one that struck such fear in your heart.It was early March when the trepidation began, and you think back to how your son, Joseph, the senior second baseman, complained that his left side was hurting. I think I broke my ribs. And then at dinner on a Monday night, Joe showed you the lump, and you both tried to remember if he had been hit by a ground ball. (He hadnt.) You remember March 7 in Homestead. The kids pain was worse, but he played that afternoon against Mater Academy. Afterward, you went to the Homestead hospital, where X-rays and a CT-scan revealed a mass near his rib cage. At midnight, your son I wasnt thinking cancer, I thought maybe it was extra bone, he had said was admitted. The next day, grim news followed more tests. Apossible osteosarcoma, a doctor had said, and you remember her painting a picture about the aggressiveness of such a tumor. Another doctor was consulted, and you remember your relief when he told you and Sheri, your wife of 21 years, that rib-cage tumors were usually benign. After scans of Joes brain, chest, abdomen and pelvis were ordered and a biopsy was scheduled, you had said to him, Look, Joe, bubba, were in for a tough fight. Abiopsy was scheduled for the following Monday at Baptist Hospital in Kendall, and you, Joe and Sheri came home for the weekend, praying for the best, hoping the tumor would be low-grade.Answered prayers the mass was diagnosed as a chondrosarcoma, cancer but low grade, and you remember being relieved that it wasnt worse. Surgery was scheduled for the next week, and you returned to Key West.Acouple of days later, on March 14, another Wednesday, you were throwing batting practice when your chest began to hurt. You stopped, making the excuse that it was a bad tooth. The next day, at your job as controller at Historic Tours of America, the pain persisted. Though you hadnt been to a doctor in 20 years, you suspected that you had high blood pressure, but youd always felt well.You went home and told Sheri, With all thats been going on, I dont want to alarm you, but . . You went to Lower Keys Medical Center, where you were found to have angina, and that Friday you were airlifted to Baptist. Like, why is this happening to us? Joe had said. On March 19, you underwent a stent procedure to clear a blockage in a coronary artery. Adoctor had said, Its your left anterior descending, its called the widow maker, and you remember laughing at that. Physically, you felt a lot better three days later when you were at yet another hospital, South Miami, in Joes room, waiting for him to be taken to surgery. You looked down at your anxious 18year-old, strong-boned with a faint mustache. I just want it out, he had said. The operation lasted an hour and a half. You remember when Joe awoke. He was in pain and was missing sections of two ribs, part of his diaphragm and part of his chest wall, but he heard theConch father and son share lessons about whats importantBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor MCT/St.Louis Post-DispatchScott Deffenbaugh rides Missouris first zipline at Eagle Falls Ranch in Eminence,Mo.Monroe County commissioners give green light for Crane Point to pursue state grants for Marathon zipline.See story,pg. 5A .UP IN THE AIRCity vows to address towingPersistent concerns at the former Quay restaurant property are forcing the Marathon City Council to reconsider enacting a law overseeing local tow-truck operators. The council backed off approving a law in November that would require tow companies to accept travelers checks, credit cards and debit cards-in addition to cash-after two operators argued against the measure. But just as in November, council members said they continue to receive complaints about Florida Keys Towing, owned by Bill Pruitt. Pruitts company began removing trucks and boat trailers from the private Quay property adjacent to the cityowned public boat ramp near mile marker 54. The propertys owner, the estate of Gus Boulis, gave him permission to do so. Boulis was murdered in Fort Lauderdale in 2001.Councilwoman Ginger Snead said she received a call from a resident saying Florida Keys Towing attempted to tow her from the Quay property as she ate lunch inside her car. She was in her car eating her lunch, with the car running, when a tow truck backed up to her to tow her away and a situation ensued. Thats not acceptable. I want to put it on the agenda next time so we can put an end to it once and for all, she said. City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the Keynoter that his staff is working on an ordinance that would require tow-truck companies to pay a nominal registration fee for the privilege to tow private properties in the city. Were not trying to do comprehensive towing legislation, he said.

Monroe County schools, facing a $484,000 past-due notice from the state may have found the money to repay state emergency loans dating back to Hurricane Georges. Ken Gentile, poised to become the Monroe County School Districts first ever chief of staff, cut his teeth on the job by reviewing various district funds. In that process, he said, hes pinpointed $1.5 million that can be used to repay the hurricane recovery debt. Currently serving as the districts internal auditor, Gentile said in analyzing a reimbursement account used to store money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency in relation to Hurricane Wilma in 2005, he realized the dollars could be used to repay a $484,000 FEMAdebt resulting from an overpayment in the aftermath of Hurricane Georges in 1999. When I first looked at it I said its like paying somebody back with their own money sort of doesnt feel right, Gentile said, adding he had shopped the idea with the Florida Auditor Generals Office and was met with approval. Before this recent twist, the plan was to pull half the money from a capital account filled in 2009 when the School Board sold the Harris School in Old Town. The balance would have come from district operating reserves, which contains around $1,875,000 which is equivalent to 2.5 percent of total revenues. That calculation is important because when Florida school districts drop below 3 percent in reserves, the district superintendent must notify the state Department of Education. Department of Education spokeswoman Cheryl Etters said the Keys schools system joins Broward and Hernando school districts in reporting fund balances below that 3 percent trigger. Etters said no districts have reported below 2 percent. If that happens, state law allows Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson to empanel an oversight committee and enable the governor to take action, up to and including removing school board members. The $484,272 is owed to the state Division of Emergency Management, which acts as a funding conduit for FEMA. And the state has notified the district the debt is due now. Board Chairman John Dick said hed support the repayment as long as it didnt send the fund reserve below the all-important 2 percent. If it keeps us from going under 2 percent, I think we should do it. I will not approve a budget amendment that takes us below that threshold. The district is facing financial pressures, including an austerity plan rolled out this month by Superintendent Jesus Jara. His plan would cut $6.2 million in year-over-year expenses for the fiscal year that begins July 1.Tax hike?At a series of five town hall meetings in recent weeks, many parents and schools staff urged Jara to explore a countywide referendum asking voters to raise the districts tax rate for schools to offset planned cuts. Gentile prepared a timeline indicating that if the district works quickly, they could logistically get a referendum on the Aug. 14 ballot then begin collecting the tax two months later. Afew things have to happen, he said. Its not a slam dunk. Wed have to approve a tax rate in July assuming that it passes. Then youd have to go in with two budgetsone assuming it passes, one assuming it doesnt. Board member Ron Martin has called for a board discussion of the concept at the Aug. 24 meeting. At every town hall meeting I went to, the subject was brought up, Martin said. People asked why we dont at least explore it. Thats what were going to it. If we cant do it, well move on. Jaras proposed cuts for 2012-13: firing 40 teachers to save nearly $3 million; saving $1.7 million by adjusting the employee health care benefits plan; another $1.2 million by continuing a seven-day furlough program; and $600,000 by outsourcing the transportation department. The current budget is $82.3 million. Jara projects a 2012-13 budget with $78 million in revenue and $83 million in estimated expenses. The board meets April 24, beginning at 5 p.m., in the administrative offices on Trumbo Point, Key West.

Semi-finalists line up for postand the four commission picks added, there are now 11 candidates to replace departing City Manager Jim Scholl.Freeman, who chairs the citys search committee, described her disappointment.The members of the committee said that commissioners had spoken to them and wanted people on the shortlist that didnt meet the criteria, she said. Commissioners plan an up or down vote including the added candidates when they meet May 1. The [City] Attorney is going to take those (four added resumes) to the commission and let them decide if theyll be included, Freeman said. The screening committee on May 17 will agree on a list of four of five finalists, leading to selection by commissioners at a June 4 meeting, the time not yet set. South Florida recruitment consultant Colin Baezinger is helping the committee evaluate candidates and perform background and reference checks.In an email to City Clerk Cheri Smith, Baezinger described why Mair dropped out: He cited the process that had been followed in selecting semi-finalists. He had thought that once criteria were set, they would be followed.When they werent, it made him wonder what would happen in the future if he got the job. Would he be in a situation where the city did not follow the policies it had established? At a Monday night meeting, Commissioner Mark Rossi said, I think the dais should have the right to go ahead and add someone to the screening committees list of recommendations if this dais so chooses. Scholl, who earns $180,000 annually, is leaving after five years; his contract expires July 1. The cut-off for applications was April 13.Would city not follow policies?From Manager,1A

Visit our website: www.RealEstateFloridaKeys.com Mo r e steps p r oposed i n iPadsMonroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi announced major chan g es Wednesday to orderin g procedures for Apple iPhones and iPads in the wake of alleg ations that former Technical Services Administrator Lisa Druckemiller stole and resold thousands of dollars worth of the devices. Druckemiller, a 31-year county employee, is under investi g ation by the State Attorneys Office for alle g edly stealin g 36 missin g county iPhones and 12 missin g iPads conservatively valued at $15,000. In the past, Druckemiller had been solely responsible for orderin g and receivin g the equipment. But a new administrative instruction proposed by Gastesi and Deputy Administrator Debbie Frederick adds other employees and steps in the orderin g receivin g and activatin g of Apple products. Gastesi has admitted to payin g cash to Druckemiller for two iPhones and two iPads believin g he was takin g advanta g e of an employee-purchasin g discount. I read these and Im impressed by them. The system worked perfectly well unless the person with the majority of the responsibility was the problem and thats exactly what happened. This has it workin g so that there are checks and balances, County Mayor David Rice said. Accordin g to the new rules, Frederick will purchase all cellular devices and equipment after employees si g n request forms reviewed by department heads and division directors. In addition, two Technical Services employees will si g n off on all deliveries and a senior systems analyst is char g ed with activatin g the devices. Employees then si g n for the devices and a screen shot of their information is taken and attached to the ori g inal request form. Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson, whos leadin g the criminal investi g ation into Druckemiller, had not received subpoenaed data from AT&Tby the Friday cut-off, but said that wasnt uncommon when dealin g with corporations of that size. They comply but sometimes they need more time. Were still g oin g to have to sort throu g h it, he said. Wilsons request to AT&T is for billin g and technical information he can use to match specific devices with the people who have them. The end g oal is to make a presentation to a 21-person g rand jury that was seated last week for a six-month period. Durin g g rand jury proceedin g s, 15 jurors represent a quorum and it takes 12 votes to issue an indictment. We welcome that the g rand jury is g oin g to be lookin g at this. In the meantime, weve taken a proactive approach, Gastesi said. The key is we put a redundancy system in place. One person was doin g most of the operation and its now three or four people. Were tryin g to restore the confidence that this will not happen a g ain.Gastesi also said the county will stron g ly consider g ettin g out of the business of orderin g cell phones and other equipment in favor of a stipend system. It would make life easier, he said, because the phone could also be used for personal business.That way its up to the employee. Were seriously considerin g g oin g in that direction and thatll solve not only the current issue, but other issues of personal use, Gastesi said.

It happened on the same day he was to receive a plaque from the Pi g eon Key Foundation Board reco g nizin g Galla g hers contributions to preservin g and catalo g in g the history of the museum collection. He was the lon g -servin g chairman of the Marathon Historical Society and author of many books, includin g Pi g eon Key and the Seven-Mile Brid g e, Marathon: Heart of the Key West Extension, Marathon 1906-1960 and Marathon Matures. Thank g od that he was here and did what he did when he did it, or it would have been forever lost, said Marathon businessman Brian Schmitt said. Schmitt, head of Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate Co., is a Marathon native and shared family photos and other historic photos and other memorabilia with Galla g her. Its a bi g loss for the history of Marathon because he had a real interest and personal knowled g e in doin g the work all the way from the railroad days to the present, Schmitt told the Keynoter. Marilyn Tempest, a former Marathon council member, knew Galla g her throu g h her work with the Marathon Community Theatre. He (Dan) built every set I ever had and he and I used to g o back and forth about how realistic [what I asked him to build] was. He was quite an en g ineer. Galla g her came to the Keys in 1988 after spendin g 17 years as a colle g e professor. In the Keys, he became a boat captain, environmental g uide, editor and author. Reitt Steinmetz, a member of the Pi g eon Key Foundation board, described Galla g her as my mentor. When he was ill, I drove him up and down [from Key West] and we became very g ood friends. Galla g her was born April 24, 1945. He would have turned 67 Tuesday.He is survived by his widow, Rita Irwin, son Jay Galla g her, dau g hter Jill Olsen and four g randchildren. Information about funeral services was not available by press time. Acelebration for local friends is planned but not yet announced.

Nor is it necessarily unusual for human remains to be found underwater. Through foul play, accident or by nature, sometimes bodies just end up in the drink off an island chain like the Keys. But what a sponge fisherman found about three feet underwater off Key West Monday was more than a little macabre, and it turns out thankfully, not real. The fisherman called the Monroe County Sheriffs Office at around 1 p.m. to report the skeletal remains of a body sitting upright in the captains chair of a sunken boat. Sheriffs Office Detective Manny Cuervo hopped a ride on a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission vessel to investigate. The sunken boat was about 200 yards offshore of Archer Key, several miles west of Key West, said Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin. The FWC officer went in the water to retrieve the chair with the body attached to it. Brought it to the surface, the skeleton although very real in appearance turned out to be a plastic fake. Police believe it was likely set up all along as a hoax. It looks pretty real, Cuervo said. But if it was real, the skeleton would have fallen apart long before it had time to accumulate the algae that was on it. Nevertheless, Cuervo and his FWC colleague removed the fake body and the captains chair so they dont get any more calls.Underwater find turns out to be elaborate hoaxReporter staff KEY WEST Photo courtesy Monroe County Sheriffs OfficeSkeletal remains stuck to the captains chair of a sunken boat turned out to be fake.Police say the scene was likely a hoax.Deadline extended for ziplineThe Monroe County Commission on Wednesday begrudgingly supported extending the deadline for an $85,000 Tourist Development Council grant to Marathons Crane Point Museum and Nature Center.The grant is intended to help fund a proposed zip-line attraction at the Middle Keys nonprofit. Avote to change the termination date of the grant to Dec. 21 passed, 3-2, with Commissioners Kim Wigington and Sylvia Murphy dissenting. Several residents and the Keys environmental group Last Stand have vocally opposed the project, but the TDC and its Middle Keys district advisory committee, as well as the Crane Point board of directors unanimously approved the TDC funding. The Marathon City Council also applied for $735,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding through the state Department of Community Affairs now part of the Department of Economic Opportunity to help build the $1.1 million course. Crane Point is projecting the attraction will create 21 jobs that, according to the grant requirements, must be around for at least one year. Zip line opponents have voiced doubt about those projections and the city taking on financial liability. The city would have to pay back $35,000 to the state for each job not created, but Crane Point Operations Manager John Henderson has said the nonprofit would cover the cost of up to four jobs if necessary. Henderson bluntly defended constructing the zip-line course Wednesday. In a perfect world a project such as this wouldnt be necessary. Crane Point would be an attraction of its own. The demographic drawn to Crane Point is older and literally dying. I dont know any other way to put that, he said. Henderson said Crane Point is banking on the zipline breathing new life into the 60-plus acre attraction. You need a hook. You have to change what you offer to suit your demographic. Its something to bring people in and theyre going to learn something, he said. Im a tree guy; I always have been. By the same token I recognize the mode of operation at Crane Point has not worked. If not for windfalls and good luck, it would have gone into foreclosure a long time ago. Commissioners George Neugent and David Rice both represent the Middle Keys and voiced concern. I dont know that it improves the park, Neugent said. I will support it because its gone through a process we normally rubber stamp. Rice said he hopes well never see a zip line at Crane Point. Ill do everything I can to explore other opportunities to preserve Crane Point, but without a source of revenue were going to lose Crane Point anyhow, he said.Concerns raised during 3-2 vote over fundingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com MARATHON want to basically [monitor] the tows from private property in terms of knowing theyre being done in a way that the visitors and other folks are being treated reasonably. Hernstadt said doing so would mean the city could revoke private property privileges if they behaved in a way contrary to city code. We can put some regulations in place for how those occur, he said. The council was unanimously on board with a law policing private property tows at its April 10 regular meeting. We need to address it. Most of the tow companies are doing a good job and theyre not abusing this, but it takes one bad apple. We have to make some corrections, Councilman Mike Cinque said. Hernstadt said the ordinance would likely be up for first public hearing at Tuesdays council meeting. Its scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,April 21,2012 Hired consultant may be oustedMonroe County School Board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths, who just months ago led the charge to bring in a consultant to aid in the search for the next superintendent, this week responded to criticism by setting the stage to get rid of Wayne Blanton, executive director of the Florida School Boards Association. Last week Blanton hosted a meeting in Key West of the 22-person superintendent search committee, charged with bringing a shortlist of applicants to the board for a final selection. Astounded by the way Blanton conducted the meeting, Steve Pribramsky, a committee member and former District 1 School Board member, shot off an email to the board, enumerating his concerns, particularly the notion that Blanton may present his own list of finalists, separate from the committee. Griffiths placed a discussion item on the boards Aug. 24 agenda to terminate the agreement with Blanton. Im just throwing it out there for the board, Griffiths said. Board Chairman John Dick said he had no problem turning the whole search over to the committee and emphasized, The board is going to make the final decision. I went to that meeting, he said of the initial committee session. I even heard grumbling there when it was over. This guy gave the same spiel to the School Board. What do we need him for? Dick also referenced Blantons work with the Lee County School District, which resulted in hiring Joseph Burke, the former Keys superintendent: This is the guy that sold Joe Burke to Lee County, Dick said. The board meets on Tuesday, beginning at 5 p.m., at the district offices on Trumbo Point, Key West.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS List of candidates keeps growingOn Friday there were 24 candidates vying to be the next Monroe County School District superintendent:Wayne Alexander,principal of Gasso Technical High School in Groton,Conn.George Bickert,principal of Crownpoint High School in Crownpoint,N.M.Ronald Bolandi,most recently interim superintendent of Edison Township Public Schools in Edison,N.J.Benjamin Bragg,principal of Thomas Cairo Middle School in Charleston,S.C.Joanne Calabro,professor of education at Argosy University in Pittsburgh,Pa.Alexander Carter,principal of the Telluride (Colo.)

KEYSNET.COM Caroline Street gets reduced speed limitsBased on feedback from neighborhood residents and business owners, city crews this week lowered the speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph on Caroline Street in Old Town Key West. Last week District 1 City Commissioner Jimmy Weekley hosted a public meeting to discuss pending infrastructure improvements along the commercial and tourist corridor.The speed limit change was a quick, low-cost fix identified through the discussion.Other slated improvements include new sidewalks and curbs, optimized stormwater drainage, and new, consistent streetlights and signage. Caroline Street is within the citys Tax Increment District, which through a special property tax mechanism reinvests tax money into local public works projects. Commissioners in February allocated $670,000 from the TIF toward the roadwork.New sidewalks and other work next on list KEY WEST Dispute over Medicaid billsFlorida counties are lining up to sue over a controversial Medicaid bill signed on March 29 by Gov. Rick Scott. The Monroe County Commission agreed unanimously Wednesday and without discussion to become one of 25 local governments already signed up to fight a law that strips counties of the right to dispute Medicaid claims they were allowed to deny or dispute in years past. The state 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 patients costs.But counties have argued the billing system is flawed, often charging them for residents with 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 could cost local governments $325 million in backlogged denied claims from the past 10 fiscal years. Monroes portion could be as high as $3.3 million, as well as an extra $800,000 per year moving forward.The Florida Association of Counties will file the suit by the end of this month, according to FAC spokeswoman Cragin Mosteller. She said its undecided who the lawsuit would target, but the state and AHCAare likely targets. County Commissioner Heather Carruthers said the main legal argument would be that the bill violates state constitutional requirements for financial mandates because it passed both houses with less than a two-thirds majority.An amended version of House Bill 5301 was approved by the House, 7336, and by the Senate, 23-17 on March 9.Monroe joins 24 counties suing the stateBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com MONROE COUNTY

The rent controversy between the HFKF and TSKWtruly represents the habitat for insanity as well as a major misuse of resources. The non-profit HFKF, supposedly stewarding the best interests of historic properties for the State of Florida, is attempting to extract the highest rent possible from TSKW even -though it forces them to probable operating deficits and adds great uncertainty to their operations. The rent is 100 percent profit to HFKF and has helped them add substantial cash reserves. What is truly absurd is that with all TSKWdoes for the community is this how we reward them? Where is the accountability for the HFKF excessive self-interest and the complicity of their board of directors in this process? It should also be noted that HFKF has already instituted a rent hike of over 60 percent on July 1, 2011 that will cause a deficit to TSKWoperations in the current year; and the current rent is above market (rate). Also, before TSKW, HFKF was renting the space to a gymnasium at almost nothing compared to current rates. The generosity of the Rodel Foundation unfortunately created unreasonable expectations for HFKF. In summary, TSKWis the highest and best use of the property and the State of Florida should lease it directly to them and bypass HFKF to best preserve this cultural icon and support continued success of TSKW. Thomas Swain Key WestFloridas highest court tackles lawmaker maps vs. publics mandate for non-partisan reformWhen 63 percent of Floridas voters gave a nod to the Fair Districts constitutional amendment in 2010 to ensure new congressional and legislative districts for the next decade would be compact and not gerrymandered to favor incumbents or the political party in power in Tallahassee, they expected the Legislature to break decades of incumbent protection while still protecting minority voting rights. In truth, compact districts are not incompatible with districts that favor minority representation, particularly because housing patterns continue to produce strong ethnic and racial enclaves throughout Florida. But bad habits are tough to break, and, sure enough, the Legislatures plans are now before the courts again as voting rights groups and the Democratic Party argue that the Republican-led Legislature failed in its task. On Wednesday, a trial judge in Leon County charged with reviewing the congressional districts promised to rule in time for candidates to qualify to run by the June deadline. On Friday, the Florida Supreme Court will take up the Fair Districts Coalitions lawsuit of the redistricting plan for the state Senate seats, which the justices returned to the Senate to redo. This is the second try to get truly fair districts. As it is, the Senates second attempt to do right by voters still managed to protect virtually all incumbents (of both parties), creating 16 safe Republican seats, 14 safe Democratic seats and 10 toss-up battles that surprise, surprise lean to the GOPeven though there are more registered Democratic voters than Republicans in the Sunshine State. The justices already rejected the statewide voter registration numbers as an argument that the previous plan was skewed to the GOP, but they also made clear that the effect of those new lines can be an objective indicator of intent. The intent, its no secret, is to keep the status quo, and in this sense the Democratic Party has its own political battle with some black incumbent Democrats who believe fair districts would hurt their chances of re-election. The Fair Districts Coalition, which includes the nonpartisan League of Women Voters, Common Cause and La Raza, are offering a clear plan that upholds compact districts. The coalition took the justicesMarch 9 recommendations to the Senate and drew maps that do not favor a particular party or incumbents. It will be up to the courts to decide whos right, of course, but the big change from past court reviews is that there are specific voter-approved parameters on which to base the decision nonexistent during the last court redistricting battles of 2002. For the first time the Florida courts can act as a true check and balance on the Legislatures attempts to draw lines that result in representation thats not an Incumbent Protection Act. The Miami HeraldThanks for the memoriesThe Keynoter article (April 4) on Marathons new street signs was exceptional. It brought back good memories. In the article, I was trying to remember who came up with the idea to have the original names of the different streets put on the bottom of the numbered signs. What a historic idea. Then, it hit me. It was Dan Gallagher who came up with the idea. Dan and I have been friends with a shared interest in history for many, many years. What a neat guy to work with. Dan did an outstanding job on this one. It was a great idea. And, thanks to the city for following through with his idea. Dan, youre the man. Mike Puto Marathon Cover of historian and author Dan Gallaghers last book:Marathon Matures. Rent hike unreasonableI am writing to express my deep concern about the rent disagreement between the Studios of Key West and Historic Florida Keys Foundation. I am a new Key West resident. Many things drew me to Key West but the two most important were the breadth and depth of cultural opportunities and the friendly cooperative community. I strongly encourage HFKF come to a fair and equitable rent level that reflects a fair market rent and the tremendous value that the Studios have brought in their first five years. I was amazed when I first learned The Studios was only five year old. Lets not burden or stunt The Studios future by burdening it with an unfair and equitable rent. Edward L.

The county has received largely lackluster bids for the waterfront Maloney Avenue site, purchased for $3.13 million at the behest of thenCommissioner Dixie Spehar in 2006. But unlike previous bid processes, the selection review committee will be able to hear presentations from interested parties. They were previously not allowed, but the Legislature made changes to public-records law and the Sunshine Law governing open government.Assistant County Attorney Nat Cassell told the Keynoter the latest request for proposals should go out in June or July.Im going to re-write it so that everyone understands this new procedure, she said. Cassell told the commission on Wednesday that several state statutes exist allowing governments to negotiate with bidders, but none apply to the Hickory House. Selection committees have made past decisions based on written proposals and couldnt call bidders to ask questions. The 2011 change in state law makes that possible. Its an exemption. If you choose to do that it would no longer be a public meeting. Staff would have to record the meeting and it would be presented at a later date, Cassell said. The good thing about that is not so much the presentation as it is the ability to ask a question. The con is losing the public meeting concept. People in our county like the ability to come and here what your selection committees are doing, she continued. Spehar led the effort to purchase and use the Hickory House site as public waterfront, but its lain dormant since 2006. The $3.13 million sale price was well above the appraised value at the time of $659,446. The property is valued at $996,995 today. In September, West Palm Beach-based Florida Yacht Charters & Sales made the only bid the commission heard as reasonable. Attorney says law changes bid processBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTYSingh wants to add 16 unitsDeveloper Pritam Singh wants in on the city of Marathons newfound wealth of hotel room allocations. Singhs Marathon Resort Properties, LLC, is requesting conditional use permits to add 16 one-bed hotel rooms to his 87-unit Tranquility Bay Resort near mile marker 48. City Planning Director George Garrett said Singh already owns five hotel room rights, or transient units, and is interested in procuring another 11. But Garrett was clear none have been promised to Singh. Heres the critical thing. They are not asking for any of the 100 transient units; theyre asking for approval for the project, he said. If we approve it he can go out and buy units or he can potentially come to us. In no way is he getting approval on any of those 100 units. The state Cabinet, based on a state Department of Economic Opportunity recommendation, awarded the 100 units in January in recognition of Marathons nearly completed citywide sewer system. The city could also borrow forward another 100 units.The city has held two public workshops to gather resident input on how the units should be doled out. 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 citys pool will devalue their holdings.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 allocated from the citys pool.Even though hes yet to officially request any of the 100 units, Garrett said Singh has spent a significant amount of money on professional building plans for the project. Hes the first whos actually walked in the door where I know what his goal is to get some of these units, he said. According to the plans, the 16 units would be built in four existing buildings at Tranquility Bay. Three of four buildings would add a second floor, while the remaining two-story commercial building would be remodeled to accommodate transient use.Plans call for transient use in 4 buildingsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMARATHON The 16 units would be built in four existing buildings at Tranquility Bay.

The presidential oil spill commission disbanded after it finished its main report last year, but its seven members recently got together again to look back on whether their recommendations had been carried out. Many steps to prevent or sop up another oil blowout havent been taken. The risks will only increase as drilling moves into deeper waters with harsher, less familiar environmental conditions, the report says. Delays in taking the necessary precautions threaten new disasters, and their occurrence could, in turn, seriously threaten the nations energy security. The Gulf oil spill began with an explosion of a deepwater well on April 20, 2010, killing 11 men. Failure of its blowout preventer, a device meant to seal off the well in an emergency, resulted in the release of more than 4 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The Interior Department addressed the problems of blowout preventers in an interim rule in 2010, and its working on a new regulation that will upgrade the requirements significantly, the report said. But the department hasnt issued rules to correct the design flaw of the blowout preventer that made it fail to operate properly. It also hasnt followed a recommendation to require that blowout preventers and other equipment have sensors that show how well theyre functioning. In a section on the Arctic Ocean, the commission calls for more money to increase the scientific understanding of the regions environment and wildlife in areas where drilling is expected. The Obama administration is near final approval for Shell Oil to drill this summer in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas. The commissioners point out that the Coast Guard has said it isnt capable of responding to an oil spill in the Arctic. They called for industry to demonstrate that it can contain and clean up an oil spill in Arctic conditions. Shell and government agencies conducted Arctic oil-spill exercises last month. The industry also has experimented with burning spilled oil and recovering it with machinery in icy conditions in Norway and in a lab, but these techniques have not been successfully tested in the extreme weather conditions that are often present in Arctic waters, nor (have) they been evaluated in any significant way by government entities, the commissioners reported. The environmental advocacy group Oceanas senior scientist Jackie Savitz said the oil spill commissions overall recommendations were too weak in the first place and werent being followed: So what were left with is a situation where not much has changed, and we could have the same spill any day. Oceana released its own report Tuesday on how well the commissions recommendations were carried out. It gave the government and industry Fs and Ds. Oil spill-response plans filed before the BPdisaster in some cases listed the walrus as a local species in the Gulf, evidence of careless clip jobs from Alaska plans. That no longer happens, and the quality of the reviews has improved, Oceana said. Still, it said that the government underestimates the risks of spills and potential damage from spills, and uses these low estimates to justify more drilling. Oceana also argued that the government hadnt made sure that the industry is prepared to deal with spills. As one example, it said that Interior had approved applications with claims that companies could skim up far more oil than theyd ever done before.Oceana and the presidential commission made some identical criticisms. Both, for example, said that the industrys Center for Offshore Safety, which was created in response to the BPspill, should be independent and not under the control of the industrys lobby group, the American Petroleum Institute.The oil industry also set up two consortiums to provide well-containment equipment. Two years ago, the equipment didnt exist and it took three months to create it while the oil gushed. Now it could take several weeks to deploy these systems, the commissioners said. Some also question whether these systems have been adequately proven to be effective under the difficult conditions of deep water drilling. The commissioners gave the industry a C plus. Erik Milito, the American Petroleum Institutes group director of upstream and industry operations, told reporters last week that the industry conducted a comprehensive reappraisal of safety for offshore operations. Two years later, he said, that evaluation has led to significant safety enhancements in the offshore business and an enhanced framework of rules, standards and oversight to ensure the highest level of safety for the development of our ample offshore resources. The commissioners graded Congress with a D for, among other things, failing to pass legislation that would improve oil drilling management. The commissioners report also said that the House of Representatives had passed several bills that contained provisions that ran contrary to the recommendations, including requirements for leases in the Gulf without adequate reviews. Congress also hasnt passed the commissions recommendation that 80 percent of all penalties from the spill go to longterm restoration of the Gulf.Presidential commission issues reportBy RENEE SCHOOFMcClatchy NewspapersOIL BUSINESSGreenberg back at theatreMarathon Community Theatre has hired Bonnie Greenberg as general manager.She previously worked for the non-profit as its first GM nearly a decade ago.As she gears up for the troupes next production, Forever Plaid, which opens May 24, Greenberg said her return felt like coming home.

B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Lady Canes dispatch Palmetto squad 13-4Coral Shoreslacrosse Lady Hurricanes earned the right to play for the District 25 championship by dispatching Palmetto, 13-4, in Wednesdays tournament semifinal in Tavernier. The Lady Canes (11-3) were scheduled to meet Palmer Trinity on Friday night at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium. Results were pending at press time. As expected, top seed Coral Shores (7-0 in district) advanced easily with the solid win over fourth seed Palmetto (1-7). But the Lady Canes held just a narrow 3-1 lead more than midway through the first half before a late scoring spree including two net shots in the last 35 seconds turned it into a lopsided 8-1 contest at halftime. Were pleased with the win but I wasnt happy with how we got there, Cane head coach Mark Hall said. We started out sloppy...We cant play like that against second seed Palmer Trinity. Junior attacker Julia Lozano scored five goals, giving her a remarkable 82 goals through 14 games. She also dished out three assists. The senior trio of Jenn Doyle (3 goals), Raisa Santiesteban (2) and Cami Lopez (2) accounted for the rest of the Lady Cane scoring. Lopez also intercepted three Palmetto passes, and made four of the six forced turnovers by the Coral Shores defense. Goalie Elizabeth Roa turned in another doubledigit game with 12 saves. Winner of the championship gets a first-round bye in the state regional tournament, and will open in the second round on April 26. Regional game sites, decided by seeding of district winners, will be announced this weekend. Loser of Fridays District 25 title game puts away the sticks until next spring. Were in single-elimination now, Hall said. The other District 25 semifinal game saw Palmer Trinity (5-6 overall, 5-2 in district) and Killian (6-8) locked in a 10-10 tie at the end of regulation before Palmer pulled out a 13-10 decision in overtime.Face tough seed in district championshipLACROSSE Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores leading scorer Julia Lozano (12) outraces Palmetto defenders on the way to one of Lozano's five goals in the 13-4 district semifinal victory.The Lady Hurricanes (11-3) played for the district championship Friday (results pending at press time).Two Conch track stars qualify forstateKey West High Schools Clive Georges continued his track dominance at Wednesdays Region 4-2A regional meet and qualified for next Saturdays state meet in four events. Asenior who will play football at the University of Arizona, Georges won the 100-meter dash and the triple jump, was second in the 200 and third in the 400. The only other Conch who will go on to the state meet is senior Lindsay Cowpland in the shot put and the discus throw. Georges won the 100meter dash in a personal-best 10.66 seconds and set a school record in the 200 with a time of 21.48, passing Marcus Bolden (21.93 in 2007) and Ran Carthon (21.60 in 1998). His 48.42 in the 400 was also a personal best. His triple jump of 44 feet 7 inches was 19 inches short of his best mark. He has a chance at three state-championship medals, said Key West coach Dave Perkins, who said Georges might not compete in the 100 because the best state mark in that race is 10.2 seconds, which could be out of his reach. Upper Keys distance runner Joanna McCoy, competing for Miamis Gulliver Prep, won the 3,200 meters by more than 11 seconds with an 11:29.49 time. McCoy took fourth in the 1,600. Cowpland was third in the shot put with a heave of 33 feet 6 inches (5-10 behind the winner) and fourth in the discus with a throw of 112-4 87 behind the winner but four inches farther than her previous best. Perkins said Cowpland has a good chance to get a medal at the state meet. To do that, she will have to finish in the top eight. Twenty-three other Conchs and six Coral Shores athletes competed in the regional meet, which was at the Ansin Sports Complex in Miramar, but none could finish in the top four, which was needed to advance. The state meet will be at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Clive Georges and Lindsay Cowpland aim for medalsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorTRACKFirst inning proves decisive to DolphinsMarathon High School fell just short Tuesday of earning a championship in its inaugural season as a member of the South Florida Baseball Conference. Starter Kyle Pierce had a shaky first inning and his offense couldnt produce any runs to close the gap as tournament host Miami Country Day handed the Dolphins a 4-0 loss on its home field. It was a pitchers duel. We had one bad inning; he walked a few guys, coach Luis Leal said of Pierce. I think he only gave up three hits all game. But even with that if you dont score a run you cant win and good pitching beats good hitting. Both teams played well; neither team made an error and thats what a championship game should be. The better team won today, he said. Pierce struggled mightily with his control in the bottom of the first inning, walking the bases loaded with one out. Country Day took a 2-0 lead on a two-run single. Asacrifice fly made it 30 as Leal had junior pitcher Patrick Ryan warming up outside the Dolphins dugout. I think he might have been a little nervous but I knew he could throw strikes. You fall behind by three runs and you should be able to win, Leal said. Pierce got out of the inning on a fly ball to left field and settled in nicely the rest of the way. Hed face no more than four batters in any inning the rest of the game. Pierce pitched a complete game, striking out four batters and allowing just three hits. He walked five batters, including four in the decisive first inning. The Dolphins offense also sent no more than four batters to the plate in any of its at-bats. Their best scoring chances came in the thirdHitting falls short against Country DayBy:RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgLady Dolphins end season with 7-1 lossThe Marathon High School girls softball season came to a close Tuesday with a first-round District 16-2A tournament loss to Florida Christian School, 7-1. Starter Jordan Roney pitched a solid game and the Dolphins played solid defense against a strong Patriots team, but the team scattered just five hits and couldnt get much going offensively. Roney was 2-for-3 with a single and a double, while Taylor Konrath, Amanda Bruland and Abi Connell each had one hit. Konrath drove in the lone run for Marathon in the fifth inning. Its always disappointing to lose, but if you compared the way we played them earlier in the year its encouraging to see that kind of improvement, coach Andrea Murphy said. Avery young Dolphins roster took on a number of tough opponents this season, including the Patriots new to District 16 this season on March 8. They lost that game 13-4. The Dolphins started out well, with leadoff hitter Connell doubling to open the game. Roney sacrificed her to third base, but Savannah Rodamer and Konrath struck out to end the inning. It started out great but we couldnt produce anything, Murphy said. A team like that is going to score on you. We held them the first inning, but they started to chip away a run or two every inning.Coach sees young squad improvingBy:RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOFTBALLSee Baseball,2BSee Softball,2B
KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,April 21,2012The Dolphins have struggled at time on defense during the year, or with allowing opponents a big inning. They did neither Tuesday, Murphy said. We might have made two errors the entire game. Jordan really pitched a good game, theyre just a good hitting team, she said. Marathon finished the season with an 11-11 record and returns almost the entire roster. Cassie Smith is the lone graduating senior. We have almost our full squad returning and a lot of the girls are showing interest in playing over the summer and wanting to improve and get better. The desire is there so Ill think well be good next year, Murphy said.Marathon finishes at 11-11From Softball,1B and sixth innings, but they failed to capitalize. Ian Almodovar walked and stole second base to open the third inning. He was thrown out running to third base after leaving second early on a Carlos O Farrill grounder. OFarrill was later thrown out on a very close play trying to take third on a two-out base hit by Yoniel Esquirol. Esquirol tripled with one out in the top of the sixth, but Drew Thornbrugh and Joey Gonzalez both struck out to leave him stranded in scoring position. We had some guys on base, but we hit it at people and they made some good plays. They just beat us today, Leal said. Country Day notched its only other run in the fourth inning when a runner scored on a wild pitch after hitting a triple to open the inning. Pierce struck out the side after allowing the hit. The Dolphins (15-11) are slated to face Florida Christian School in the first round of District 16-2Atournament play. The game is tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday at host Westminster Christian School in Miami. Dolphins and Hurricanes honored Marathon and Coral Shores high schools were well represented Tuesday, as the South Florida Baseball Conference announced its first, second and third allconference teams. Coral Shores had the most first-team players of any of the six conference schools with four: Brandon Joyce, Erick Enriquez, Josh Sands, and Kalen Carter. Marathons Joey Gonzalez and Carlos OFarrill made the squad. Coral ShoresDavid Boque, Danny Wollangk and Jonathan Mitjans were named to the second team, along with Marathons Ian Almodovar and Yoniel Esquirol.

On Monday, April 21, gourmands can descend on the Key Largo Conch House, mile marker 100.2, ocean, and compete for bragging rights in the Conch Fritter Eating Contest.This Key Largo landmark restaurant was featured last year on the Food Channels Man v. Food program. And, yes, conch fritters were the challenge on TV.Conch shell veterans will get the opportunity to blow their hearts out at two events for this years celebration. On Friday, April 27, at Sundowners Restaurant, mile marker 104, gulf, the hardy and fame seekers will attempt to set a world record. Last year, the contest drew 200 and much noise was made. And theres a second chance for conch shell enthusiasts and their fans on Sunday, April 29, when Snappers, mile marker 94.5, ocean, hosts closing ceremonies, which include more conch shell blowing.Key Largo hosts fun and games April 22-29By LAttitudes StaffKEY LARGOShort Attention Span opens at Red BarnComedy Central and comedians like Jon Stewart, Mark Allen, Sue Murphy and others created the Short Attention Span Theater. The comic sketches ran on the cable network from 1989 to 1994. Jon Stewart was the original host and acerbic wit, and clips from entertainment news, provided fodder for the comedy. Fast-forward 20 years and youve got the stage version of Short Attention Span Theater, which opens Tuesday, April 24, at the Red Barn Theatre. Directed by Juliet Gray and Mike Marrero, the Key West troupe delivering the comic sketches and commentary will include: Kyle Caskey, Carolyn Cooper, Denis Hyland, Erin McKenna, Annie Miners, Chad Newman, David Sloan and Elizabeth Weinstock. This is a revival of the stage show with updated material and the discipline needed to compress stories into a series of tiny plays. What do you get when you take a company of actors, directors and producers and mix in fresh, new 10-minute plays? Well, producers provide the ready answer: You get the Short Attention Span Theatre. Tickets cost $30-$65. Short Attention Span Theatre runs through Saturday, May 12. For more information, visit: www.redbarnthe atre.com or call the box office, 296-9911. For aficionados of the genre, Short Attention Span Theater later morphed into guest sketches when Comedy Central became The Comedy Channel, which later became The Comedy Network. By 2002, the idea changed yet again and was dubbed Comic Remix, which fit the club scene music mix rage of the day, only with comedy as the driver instead of the pulsing bass line.Comic sketches and short plays steal the showBy LAttitudes StaffTHEATER Howard Kolbenheyer,the Big Kahuna,reads official proclamation of secession at last years Conch Republic ceremonies.

As the worlds first fifth world nation, a sovereign state of mind seeking only to bring more humor, warmth, and respect to a world in sore need of all three, the Conch Republic remains the country who seceded where others failed.

Organizers also stage ceremonies to install a Conch Republic Cabinet, witness the signing of secession papers, and even the demolition of a mock bridge.The latter was dreamed up by Howard Kolbenheyer, owner of Snappers Restaurant, who began an annual symbolic Jewfish Bridge demolition in 1991.This, of course, was to honor the history of the Conch Republic, which grew out of a 1982 incident when the U.S. Border Patrol set up 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.Multiple venues host eventsFrom Republic,5B Everglades National Parks Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center has an exhibit of wildlife photography by Kevan and Linda Sunderland.Dubbed Floridas Wonderful Wildlife, the collection includes work from their 30-plus years of photography.
