June November 2012This was the Keys just days after Hurricane Wilma in 2005.A slow 2012 season is forecast,but all it takes is one to cause devastation.Inside,youll find all you need to know to prepare. Latest hit:Vacation rentalsPossible damage to the vacation-rental and construction industries was front and center Monday during a meeting of Middle Keys real estate agents in Marathon.Roughly 50 real estate professionals and government officials turned out for a meeting with local nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe and representatives from the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. to try to reverse Citizenslatest actions: Disallowing builderswindstorm risk insurance and not allowing homes that are licensed to ren for seven days or less to get Citizens windstorm coverage.Citizens is under instruction from the administration of Gov. Rick Scott to eliminate some 678,000 policies from its books to reduce the states risk. The insurer of last resort holds about 1.5 million policies statewide, including 25,807 on 27,951 Keys properties, according to FIRM. Elements of Citizensplan are already directly affecting the Keys, and thats not even including onerous rises in premiums for homeowners.Citizens Director of Legislative and External Affairs Christine Ashburn admitted there is no seven days or less provision in the companys underwriting manuals.FIRM Executive Director Annalise Mannix told the Keynoter the requirement came from the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, from which Citizens buys reinsurance to protect itself in the event of a large storm.The Legislature said that the Cat Fund is only for residential policies [and] the Cat Fund governing board said transient use of a residence means its really commercial.Mannix said Cat Fund Executive Director JackCitizens Property Insurance says no to windstorm coverage for manyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWINDSTORM INSURANCE Species on road to recoveryKey deer and other animals found in the Florida Keys shine as examples of endangered species recovering under federal protection, says a report from a national environmental organization. Some of Floridas signature species, from Florida manatees to American crocodiles, are on their way to recovery thanks to the Endangered Species Act, said Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity, based in Tucson, Ariz. The Center for Biological Diversity released a new report, On Time, On Target, Friday to mark Endangered Species Day. Of six species cited to highlight Floridas success stories in endangeredspecies recovery, five are native to the Keys: Key deer, manatees, American crocodiles, Atlantic green sea turtles and the wood stork.Suckling said the report was spurred by congressional critics of the Endangered Species Act, who contend its failing badly because more species have not recovered.Using animal population reports from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and independent scientific studies, the report looked at 110 endangered or threatened species that have achieved progress in recovery. Of 10 species with a projected recovery expected to occur by 2011, nine were considered to have recovered to the point where they can be downlisted to a lessprotected status. Many others with a set date for expected population recovery are on track to meet recovery goals set by federal scientists, concludes the Center for Biological Diversity report.

The Monroe County Commission on Tuesday solved long-running landuse issues with the U.S. Navy and approved a document that will help shape the future of the Keys through 2030. The county deleted older code adopting 1977 U.S. Navy Air Installations Compatible Use Zones, or AICUZ, for Naval Air Station Key West and replaced it with a military installation area of influence. The AICUZ is basically a map of jet-noise footprints and potential accidental zones around Naval Air Station Key West. County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley told the Keynoter the new boundary allows property owners inside it to maintain development rights. But any owner seeking increases in density or intensity could not be approved without military comment and proof via a noise study that they are a compatible use. Commission chambers at the Harvey Government Center broke out in applause when the item, which Mayor David Rice acknowledged was at times contentious in recent years, was approved. This is not a perfect solution for the Navy or the county and the residents who live in that area. I think, however, its the closest thing to a beneficial product we could ever hope to see, Rice said. Earlier in the day, the commission adopted an evaluation and appraisal report, or EAR, prepared by Fort Lauderdale-area engineering and planning firm Keith & Schnars. The county hired Keith & Schnars to update its comprehensive land-use plan and the report will help shape the future of the Keys through 2030. Project Manager Debbie Love gave a lengthy presentation reviewing numerous land-use elements and included data on future land use, conservation and coastal management, traffic flow, mass transit, ports and aviation, housing, solid waste, sewers and capital improvements, among other topics. The commission approved the EAR after making minor suggestions during Loves presentation. Were going to finish tweaking the language. Well add these little changes you asked us to do today. It would be subject to these changes, she said. In addition, the commission discussed numerous input variables for the upcoming memorandum of understanding between the state departments of Economic Opportunity and Environmental Protection and Keys governments regarding the new state hurricane evacuation model. Concerns with the new DEPmodel include: Its only modeled for a Category 5 storm, permanent mobile-home residents are bulked with transient rentals in phased evacuations, less-than-reliable participation rate estimates and future building allocation concerns.

Where he picked the seven days from, we have no idea. These are just people trying to get help in paying for their homes. Theyre here six months of the year. But the Cat Fund didnt budge, she said. Of all the things, this has got to be one of the worst. This is going to really affect us. Daniel Samess, Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce chief executive officer, outlined the number of rentals in each of the five county Tourist Development Council districts. He said vacation rentals in 2011 in the Middle Keys alone were worth $97.7 million to the local economy, and more than $160 million for the entire Keys. The Middle Keys are by far the largest vacation rental district in the Keys, with more than 1,100 units. Samess pointed out a domino effect if that many vacation rentals came off line, leading to fewer tourists, less tax income and local revenue, fewer local jobs and ultimately declining property values. Marathon allows rentals of seven days or more; other areas of the Keys do not, going for 28 days or more.Florida Keys Contractors Association President Chris Gratton spoke on buildersrisk policies on new construction. He and numerous audience members said eliminating such policies would be detrimental to new construction.We feel we have to take control of this, Gratton said. We already build to the highest wind load in the state of Florida; we have the strictest building code. Wind damage is almost non-existent down here when it comes to storms. Ashburn said Citizens stopped writing buildersrisk policies because it wasnt required by law to do so. But Citizens Executive Director Tom Grady offered possible relief in a May 15 letter to FIRM board member and Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers. If it is simply not available at any cost through any voluntary, admitted surplus or other market, then that is an issue that would be appropriate to revisit, he said. Mannix and FIRM board members are scheduled to travel to Jacksonville on June 6 to meet with Citizens staff and board of governors.Another battle on insuranceFrom Insurance,1A Diversity:American crocodiles rebounded from near-extinction in 1975 when only about 200 of the reptiles were known to exist. Of fewer than two dozen breeding females then, virtually all were in North Key Largo or northeast Florida Bay. By 2005, the population had grown to nearly 2,100, and the crocodile was downlisted from endangered to threatened five years ago. Manatees were declared endangered in 1967. Acensus of the marine mammals in 1991 showed only 1,478 left in Florida. The most recent count in 2011 shows a population of 4,834, possibly enough to be considered for threatened status this year.Green sea turtles are expected to be downlisted from endangered to threatened as soon as 2015. Green turtles were protected as endangered in 1978.Nests in Florida, the most critical nesting area in the United States, steadily increased. In 1990 there were 2,100 nests in Florida, according to the analysis. There were 8,500 [Florida] nests in 2010.Key deer, found only in the Lower Keys, were nearly wiped out by hunters in the 1930s. Some estimates suggest only about 30 of the diminutive deer were alive when protective enforcement was launched.When declared endangered in 1967, the population stood at around 400 but was cut in half by increased traffic and development in the early 1970s. More recent efforts allowed the herd to rebound to around 800 in 2011.Wood storks, a wading bird once found in marshes and swamps of several southern states, were severely affected by loss of habitat and water-control control projects that drained formerly wet areas. With protection and habitat restoration efforts, nesting pairs of wood storks now have increased from 6,245 in 1984 to about 12,000. A delisting to threatened is being considered.Species reboundingFrom Recovery,1A Pellet shot kills catAsweet-natured cat living as part of Theater of the Seas resident colony died Saturday, two days after being shot with a pellet from a high-powered air gun. Spirit was a gray and white female about 6 years old. She had lived in the colony overseen by staff on the Windley Key marine attractions property for more than three years. This kind of act is unconscionable, said Theater of the Sea spokeswoman Maureen LaMarra. It could have just as easily been one of our dolphins. Spirit was treated for an ear infection a week before she was shot but otherwise was perfectly healthy, said Islamorada veterinarian Robert Foley. The pellet tore through several vital organs, resulting in a slow death. The slug is about the same size as a .22-calber bullet, and has about the same velocity at short distance, Foley said. The cat probably was shot through an 8-foothigh wooden fence surrounding the feline compound, a good distance from the nearest road. Foley believes the shooting was intentional. It was an accurate, low-level shot, he said, which makes it even the more worse.These cats are kept in a good environment with meticulous care, Foley said.The fatal pellet and Xrays have been turned over to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office for the agencys investigation into animal cruelty. Theater of the Sea owner Kenny McKenny has posted a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the shooter. All of the employees at Theater of the Sea are both saddened and angry that someone would intentionally injure and murder one of our greatly loved family members, LaMarra said.Spirit killed at attractionISLAMORADABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Photo courtesy THEATER OF THE SEASpirit,a 6-year-old resident cat at Islamoradas Theater of the Sea,died Saturday after being shot with a high-powered pellet gun.Navy and county agreeBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY

Maintaining the same stance it has for the past two years, Monroe County School District administrators on Monday stressed the urgency of its poor financial footing while representatives of the Keys teacher union requested detailed budget information. The two sides met at Marathon High School to work on a plan that would institute across-the-board pay cuts for teachers in order to avoid austerity measures proposed by Superintendent Jesus Jara intended to cut around $6.2 million in yearover-year spending.The plan is for the district to deliver a preliminary budget summary to the United Teachers of Monroe by Friday in advance of the next bargaining session, scheduled for June 30 the final day of the districts fiscal year beginning at 9:30 a.m. at Marathon Middle/High School.UTM Business Agent Leon Fowler said that in order to equitably apply pay cuts across the board, he needs a firm target number of needed savings; he isnt satisfied with the administrations $6.2 million calculation and said the figure is fluctuating. Among the $6.2 million in cuts is ending supplemental pay for things like coaching teams or sponsoring clubs, and mandatory seven-day unpaid furlough days. Labor attorney Robert Norton, the districts chief negotiator, told Fowler and union President Holly Hummell-Gorman: These are very concrete, quantifiable things. Youve responded to it with a stack of documents and candidly, a lot of it is gobbledygook to me. You keep coming back and tell us our numbers are wrong, things we cant deal with, so you force us ... to go make decisions and were going to do that. The UTM plan would essentially take a starting teachers salary and then reduce that number by a certain percentage so that when applied to all other teachers, the total instructional savings would be a wash. The bottom line, Fowler said, is how much more do we have to take off? We havent really seen a budget summary presentation that would actually show all those numbers. Norton replied: Were going to assume on this side of the table and take action based on the assumption that were $6 million short. If it turns out were wrong, I hope you put up a banner that stretches from one end of the Keys to the other. Ever since Ive been doing the bargaining for the School Board ... you guys have repeatedly come to the table and said you need more financial information. Of course [the numbers are] going to change. We cant stop that but we know were in the hole, so weve got to start crawling out of the hole. Agood first start will be to take action on the insurance. Right now the district extends health insurance benefits to employees for life; Jara has proposed curtailing that at age 65, which would save $1.65 million in the fiscal year beginning July 1. That cut went to the board for final approval at a meeting after press time on Tuesday; Jara said he would endorse the move. UTM brought a counter that would give employees a greatly reduced payment based on years of experience to allow retirees older than 65 to purchase their own insurance plan. Based on the expected board action, that seems a non-starter. Despite the contentious tone of the bargaining, Norton said the district is willing to consider UTMs proposal for across-the-board cuts in lieu of other measures including the reduction of 40 teacher positions. not say the reason.Hoar said the ambulances were called to be on the safe side. Their vitals were all good, Hoar said. The studentsnames were not released because they are minors. Sheila Konczewski, spokeswoman for Mariners Hospital, said without the names of the patients, she could not comment on their conditions. According to the Department of Justices Office of Diversion Control website, CCC is a common street name for Dextromethorphan, an ingredient found in cough medicine. Users take the drug to generate euphoria and visual and auditory hallucinations, the ODC says. The slang for abusing the drug is robo-tripping or skittling. The terms refer to the most-commonly abused brands Robitussin and Coricidin, according to the ODC.

He remained in the Monroe County Detention Center Tuesday in lieu of $11,000 bond. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin says Sgt. Jason Madnick was dispatched to Ebelings house at 9:30 p.m. to check out a report of a possibly suicidal person. When he knocked on the door, Ebeling reportedly shouted, Come in! When Madnick opened the door, he reportedly saw Ebeling cutting up a pot plant, with several more plants by his side. Ebeling looked up, saw it was the police and reportedly uttered a curse. When Madnick asked for his identification, Ebeling reportedly said, I cant go to jail for this. I was arrested by you guys 10 years ago for the same thing. Ebelings Monroe County arrest record shows he was arrested in 2004 for possession of a controlled substance, and court records show he was found guilty. Friday, Ebeling sought leniency, asking Madnick to just forget he saw anything. The sergeant said no. Ebelings Keys rap sheet includes charges of aggravated battery, fraud for writing checks with insufficient funds, driving with a suspended license and petty theft.

At this point,the proposal brought by the United Teachers of Monroe is based largely on hypothetical numbers;once fine-tuned,the goal is for the cuts to total the teachersportion of a $6.2 million budget shortfall that would affect teachers. At a Tuesday bargaining session at Marathon Middle/High School,UTM representatives gave a preview of how their cuts would work. For a first-year teacher with a bachelors degree entering the Keys system in the 2012-13 year,starting pay would be $44,262 based on a contract approved in 2010 (since then,the School District has foregone the contract based on plummeting revenues). UTM Business Agent Leon Fowler proposed that the aforementioned starting salary be rolled back to the 2010-11 level of $43,177,a reduction of $1,085,or 2.51 percent.Under the UTM proposal,which the administration is considering,that 2.51 percent cut would be applied across the entire salary schedule. For instance,a fifth-year teacher with a bachelors degree has a negotiated 2012-13 salary of $51,148;with the reduction,that drops to $49,994,a difference of $1,154.

They were licensed to carry 24 passen g ers despite the vessels capacity to carry 49. That was based on a decision by city licensin g officials, who tied the boat capacity to available off-street parkin g They allowed three riders for each of ei g ht spots, which comes out to 24.Reef Snorkelin g Adventure folded in June 2006 and Fury Catamarans, owned by a g roup of prominent local businessmen, took over its space at 0 Duval St. Soon thereafter, Fury was, licensed to carry 126 passen g ers.In 2010, the Krutkos sued the city in U.S. District Court in Miami, alle g in g discriminatory and selective enforcement of the parkin g provisions. The Krutkos had sou g ht $11.5 million in dama g es.

The defendant, Louis C. Steinmetz, 46, of Orlando was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center on May 15. He remains jailed under a $500,000 bond on a count of theft involvin g more than $100,000.The Lower Keys victim is not named in the arrest warrant.Steinmetz, a former Lon g wood resident, is wellknown in Seminole County courtrooms after a years-lon g series of default jud g ments totalin g more than $1 million, and arrests for passin g worthless checks and violatin g his probation. When initially served with the Monroe County warrant in May 2011, Steinmetz was in Seminole County custody.Accordin g to a Monroe County Sheriffs Office arrest warrant si g ned by County Jud g e Wayne Miller, the Lower Keys resident was contacted in December 2009 by Steinmetz after prior dealin g s.Steinmetz, who ran a Lon g wood-based company called All American Concepts, claimed to have three purchase orders for lar g e numbers of custom shirts purchased by major corporations.Steinmetz asked the Lower Keys resident to pay the wholesaler to manufacture the clothin g In exchan g e, the corporate buyers would pay the victim directly, supposedly nettin g the backer a profit of 25 percent after payin g a commission to All American Concepts.The Bi g Torch Key resident sent three checks two to the shirt manufacturer and one directly to Steinmetz totalin g $141,787. After four months, the victim told investi g ators, he had no money from the alle g ed buyers and communications with Steinmetz became strained. The victim contacted the three purchasin g firms, only to learn the firms never placed an order. Each one of those companies confirmed the purchase orders that the victim had were not le g itimate and provided notarized statements sayin g such, the arrest warrant says. The wholesaler paid by the Lower Keys resident for two of the deals said Steinmetz abruptly cancelled the order and received a cashiers check as a refund. In the third deal, a company owner who knew Steinmetz casually said he was duped by the defendant into writin g a purchase order and cashin g the Keys victims check for Steinmetz.Steinmetz has long history in the courtsCRIME SCENEBusy couple of weeks for the FWCState marine officers seized speared lobster and tiny snails while investi g atin g separate conservation cases the past two weeks month.Alate-ni g ht snorkelin g trip Saturday at the Tavernier Creek Brid g e drew the interest of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Shelton Bartlett, who arrested two Miami men on a series of lobster-poachin g char g es. Roberto Carion Batista, 37, and Lazario Enrique Arse, 23, are char g ed with seven misdemeanors after Bartlett counted 23 speared lobster 17 of them undersized in a catch ba g .Bartlett was checkin g shore fishermen at Tavernier Creek, near mile marker 91, around 10:30 p.m. when he spotted the unusual divin g activity.When the officer identified himself, a g ency spokesman Officer Bobby Dube said, One diver threw his spear deep into the mang roves ... while the other diver attempted to hide his spear catch bah in the water, under some rocks. Both men were cited for possessin g undersized, speared, wrun g lobster taken out of season. They also were char g ed with interferin g with an officer and failure to carry a measurin g device.Turbo snailsBi g Pine Key commercial marine-life collector Vernon E. Sie g el, 29, was char g ed May 9 with brin g in g in a haul of 14 g allons of tiny star snails from one trip. Thats 13 g allons over the le g al daily limit for the species (lithopoma tectum), known to aquarists as turbo snails for the creaturesability to devour al g ae that forms inside saltwater tanks.Officer Jimmy Johnson said he spotted Sie g els 15-foot boat with two divers aboard anchored north of the Spanish Harbor Brid g e, and watched it for more than four hours.Johnson said in his report that when he spoke with Sie g el at his dock, the collector produced only one bucket of snails. Based on my experience as an FWC officer, it normally takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour per person to catch a g allon of turbo snails, Johnson wrote. I observed the two divers in the water for over four and a half hours. You g ot me, Sie g el reportedly replied. Adive ba g containin g the lar g e haul of snails was found on the boat deck. Sie g el also was cited for not havin g a live well aboard his boat, a requirement for commercial marine-life collectors to hold their catch. The snails were turned over to the Mote Marine Laboratory for research.License chargeTwo co-owners of the Eaton Street Seafood Market in Key West were arrested Monday on misdemeanor counts char g in g them with failure to have proper saltwater-products licenses for the business.Damon M. Santelli, 38, and Sean B. Seaman, 41, were booked after FWC Officer Joshua Peters checked into complaints about permittin g issues and the sale of a recreationally cau g ht fish at the business.Peters said in a probablecause affidavit that the corporation ownin g the market does not possess a wholesale dealers license or a retail dealers license required by law. The previous corporation, co-owned by Seaman but not Santelli, held licenses but le g ally dissolved in 2008, Peters reported. Seafood licenses are not transferable, accordin g to the affidavit. Santelli additionally was char g ed with filin g false paperwork for claimin g to be an officer of the prior corporation when he was not.Santelli owns a boat with federal snapperg rouper commercial licenses, but the officer contends that boat apparently was not used on recent commercial trips.Lobster,snails, lack of licenses lead to arrestsON THE WATER Photo courtesy FWCOfficer Jimmy Johnson of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission checks a 14-gallon cache of star snails also known as turbo snails seized from a marine-life collectors boat.The legal daily limit per licensed collector is one gallon.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comFire destroys catamaran in MarathonA33-foot catamaran was destroyed by fire early Monday mornin g in Marathons Boot Key Harbor, apparently the victim of an electrical problem. No one was aboard and it appears the boat had been docked near Rocos Dockside Bar and Grill on Sombrero Boulevard since March 10, Marathon Fire Chief John Johnson said. The 1991 vessels re g istered owner is Mor g an Crampton of Sprin g Texas, said Bobby Dube, spokesman for the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Johnson said the call came in about 8:05 a.m. When firefi g hters arrived about five minutes later, What we saw when we first arrived on scene is smoke comin g out of every hole that was available.There were no actual flames because the boat had lar g ely been sealed, apparently for lon g -term stora g e, so little air could g et in to feed flames. Thats g ood because there were several g asoline tanks and propane tanks, some of them full, on the boat. So we removed all of the hazards, Johnson said.It could have been smolderin g for 12 hours. The boat was locked up really ti g ht, he said. In an effort to g et to the source of the smoke, which Johnson said was the hull, firefi g hters opened the boat. Thats when flames started shootin g all around. Firefi g hters knocked down the blaze fairly quickly, the chief said. He said the boats electric system was attached to electric on the dock but that the only dama g e on the land was one pilin g g ot a little sin g e.Fire chief says electrical is likely causeMARATHONKeynoter Staff Photo by SGT.DENNIS COLEMAN/SHERIFFS OFFICEThe Texas-registered vessel burns early Monday morning at a dock in Boot Key Harbor.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

EDITORIALEnd stalemate on insuranceLETTERS TO THE EDITORCrocs a danger to kidsReading the article about the increasing crocodile population in the Upper Keys, I shudder to think that human beings our children are less protected playing and walking in areas of Islamorada and Key Largo as crocs lurk in your area. Ive seen them on my visits to Islamorada (Venetian Shores) last fall and during the Christmas season when I visited a few weeks. Children are playing on the edge of the canal and, worse, the crocodiles are lying on the road, and my relatives are saying they are protected, dont drive over them, and children are playing on that road.Please dont tell me humans invaded the crocsancient home space; they should not be there. In this large neighborhood, if and when a child is attacked or worse, it will be at that point that all are out in force relocating these creatures, or whatever you all have in mind to protect our children.We never found our dog Lacy, a border collie. She disappeared and everybody in the neighborhood searched for her. She was never seen again. You take a guess where she may have ended up. I live on a small island. We also protect indigenous species. I live within natures beauty and do my best to respect all. I understand that protection of the worlds species is to be upheld worldwide. But are you waiting for a disaster to happen before you take action? Are you saying lets just wait and see?I hope you shall get urgent help to take care of this most dangerous situation.Tania Drebenstedt Cayman Brac Cayman IslandsU.S. Senate puts people, economy at risk by blocking extension of National Flood Insurance ProgramThe stare-down thats been crippling Congress in the buildup to 2012s presidential contest has yet another potential victim that hits mighty close to home. The Federal Emergency Management Agencys National Flood Insurance Program is set to expire May 31. Should that happen, it would mean a virtual halt to all real estate sales and purchases involving a mortgage, since no lender will take the risk if the federal flood insurance is not available in floodprone areas. That includes all of the Florida Keys. However, the stalemate in Washington doesnt lie at the feet of the House of Representatives this time. The House actually passed a five-year authorization bill last year. That legislation seeks reforms in the way the program is administered and who can qualify, and would exclude some investment properties from the subsidized program. Last week, House members seeing no movement by their Senate colleagues passed a 30-day extension on a vote of 402-18, so you cant blame the Republicans and Democrats for playing politics with this one in the House. But you sure can in the Senate, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (DNev.) tried to get a similar 30-day extension in the Senate. But Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) put a stop in the way, arguing for reforms. Coburn wants to see owners of million-dollar coastal properties and vacation homes excluded from the program, along with other reforms that were part of the House package passed last year. Miami Realtor Moe Veissi, president of the National Association of Realtors, issued a statement warning of the consequences of further delays or inaction: The short-term extensions and shutdowns have exacerbated uncertainty in real estate markets and are inhibiting long-term investments that are vital to the U.S. economic recovery, he said. If youd like to register your feelings about the U.S. Senates inaction, heres the contact information youll need:www.billnelson.senate.gov/contact.www.rubio.senate.gov/contact.

Lines killer for birdsRe: Your May 9 front-page photo, Cleaning the lines. Not only was this an eyesore as stated, but both Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay and Mike Puto were recently informed that this mess had become a se bird trap and killer (there was no way for anyone to cut birds free from the baited hooks and fishing line to rescue them). Thanks to them for listening and for getting these lines cleared. Marathon residents, please report all illegal fishing from our Vaca Cut Bridge. Alain Morris MarathonBad investmentAsplash park in Marathon for $500,000? Is everyone crazy or wasteful? Go splash in the ocean, the gulf or in your shower. Town-hall meetings? It was not discussed. Now a request for proposals to build one is out? Who decided? Who gets to vote yea or nay? The city cannot honor a sewer discount for disabled veterans or lowincome, fixed-income seniors because of a lack of funds. Both have given to their country through serving in the military and/or paying taxes. I pay taxes for schools; I have no children. What is my fair share? The taxpayers in Little Venice went to town-hall meetings when they were mandated to have sewers. We were supposed to get grant money to assist us paying for the mandatory sewers; it was not passed to the homeowners. I paid $4,700 for the hookup and we were never paved for eights years. So, city of Marathon, where is the $500,000 coming from, Little Venice grant money or the savings from the disallowed discount on sewer usage? Town-hall meetings are a joke; no one listens, decisions are made beforehand and they are not held at appropriate times for working individuals. Bonnie Williams MarathonEditorial off baseI am not sure what idiotic pinhead wrote the editorial in the May issue of the Keynoter, but the derisive dismissal of my and otherswords to the Monroe County School Board as a well-rehearsed speech was insulting and inaccurate. It was actually factual information that I threw together in less than an hour because it was clear from information released by the School District administration that they were sadly misinformed about some things. I suppose the best way to put false information in a newspaper is to print it in an editorial so nobody mistakes it for news. I guess that proves what they say. Those who can, teach. Those who cannot become newspaper editors. Robert Sax TavernierThanks for coverageThank you and your sports writers for the continued coverage of youth and school sports. Coaches and us parents make personal sacrifices to support our programs and athletes. We enjoy reading about our children, our friendschildren and other students from up and down the Keys.

Panel considers charter changesKey Wests City Charter and District Boundary Review Committee on Thursday is set to vet a series of municipal code updates and election-district changes for eventual adoption by the City Commission.The meeting is set for 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street; the review process is conducted once a decade following the national census, most recently completed in 2010. Among the charter updates is deletion of a provision that requires voter approval for any annexation of property into the city; instead, annexation would be decided by a minimum of five members of the City Commission. The commission has seven members.The annexation referendum language was added to the charter in 2007, a result of resident opposition to a developers plans to annex Wisteria Island into Key West, then develop the 21-acre island into a resort similar to the adjacent Sunset Key.As for City Commission district changes, the city is divided into six districts. Each commissioner is elected from within that specific district; the mayor is elected citywide.The biggest proposed changes, driven by population shifts, are for Commissioner Jimmy Weekleys District 1 and Commissioner Clayton Lopezs District 6.If the commission approves the map changes, District 1 would have 4,120 residents, up from 3,351. District 6 would contain 4,070 Key Westers, up from 3,794.KEY WESTHoopergetting $60,000 payoutInstead of getting his job back per a court order, former Monroe County School District administrator Mark Hooper will take a payout of $60,000 from his former employer instead of returning to a district job. In May 2010, thenSuperintendent Joseph Burke chose not to renew Hoopers contract, citing budget concerns. Hooper sued, saying Burke violated his public service contract. In April, Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones ruled Hooper is entitled to be immediately reinstated as a teacher and receive $24,768 for what Hooper paid in insurance premiums after losing his job. In his three-page order, Jones wrote that Hooper was never employed under a public service contract, but due to a mistake by the district, was entitled to the same benefits as someone working under a public service contract. The $60,000 includes the insurance premium payments and around $8,000 based on Hoopers accrued vacation and sick days. Administrators wont discuss the specifics of the payout, but the settlement says that in return for the $60,000, Hooper will forever discharge the School Board of and from all manners of action he shall or may have against the School Board. Clearwater-based counsel Mark Herdman represents Hooper In September 2009, Hooper was demoted from his administrative post as director of career education and reassigned as a guidance counselor at Marathon High School. Although never implicated in illegal activity, his name came up repeatedly during a district probe into credit-card fraud and theft by former Adult Education head Monique Acevedo, whose husband Randy was then superintendent. He was criticized in a report by a forensic accounting firm hired by the School Board. That firm said Hooper bought expensive equipment without approval and failed to turn in timely finance records, on average about 300 days too late. Hooper was hired in 1998 and earned about $55,000 per year when his contract wasnt renewed.Hammond GracySuperintendent Jesus Jara says he expects his staff to complete an investigation by Friday into allegations of sexual harassment lodged by a guidance counselor against Marathon High/Middle School Principal Hammond Gracy. Were still doing the investigation, Jara said. Staff has some more interviews [today]. Im hoping they give me a report by Friday on the findings. Jara said Gracy has been using paid leave since the allegations surfaced on May 9; he was immediately pulled from the school and reassigned to the district office in Key West. Gracy has more than 30 years of experience working in public education; hes been principal at Marathon since June 2010. Before that, he spent 33 years in the Jacksonville educational system.

But Aprils drop was also affected by the fact that nearly 28,000 job seekers dropped out of the hunt. The number of jobless in April was 0.3 percentage points lower than March and 1.9 points below April 2011. The national unemployment rate for April was 8.1 percent. As it does nearly every month, Monroe County (the Keys) had the lowest unemployment rate in the state at 4.8 percent, largely due to the high number of government jobs. It was followed by Walton County (5.2 percent), Okaloosa County (5.7 percent), Franklin County (6.1 percent) and Alachua County (6.2 percent).Flagler County had the states highest jobless rate in April at 11.6 percent. It was followed by Hernando County (10.8 percent), Hendry and St. Lucie counties (10.7 percent each), Dixie County (10.2 percent) and Putnam County (9.9 percent).Gov. Rick Scott said the overall continued downward trend is testament to the states economic recovery and bodes well for Floridas continued climb back toward full employment. The April figures also shows job gains in comparison to the nation as a whole.University of Central Florida economist Sean Snaith, however, say the good news is tempered by the fact that Floridas civilian labor force shrunk between March and April by 28,000 a shrinking job pool that pushes unemployment lower without putting more people back to work. Taking into account discouraged workers and those working part time, Floridas jobless rate was 17.3 percent for the quarter ending March 31. Having the unemployment rate fall because people have given up looking for a job is not an improvement, Snaith said. Payroll growth has also remained relatively flat, another indication that fewer job seekers are being added to the rolls of employed workers. There is not a lot to encourage people to get back in the hunt, Snaith said. But the number of available jobs does continue to grow. Overall, the number of jobs in Florida was 7,325,300 in April, up 52,600 jobs compared to a year ago. It was the 21st consecutive month of year-to-year job growth. Leading sectors of the economy included employment services, which grew by nearly 11 percent, or 16,800 jobs. Education and health-related employment grew by 2.3 percent, adding 25,100 jobs over the 12month period. Construction employment continued its contraction in April.

Building construction jobs fell by nearly 11 percent.Its 4.8 percent, far below the state as a wholeBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of FloridaUNEMPLOYMENTState: More visitors coming downAccording to preliminary estimates released May 16 by Visit Florida, the states official tourism marketing corporation, 23.4 million visitors came to Florida in the first quarter of 2012 (January-March), an increase of 2.4 percent over the same period in 2011. An estimated 19.7 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the first quarter of 2012, representing a 1.2 percent increase from the same period in 2011. Florida experienced a 2.7 percent increase in Canadian visitors at 1.4 million and a 13 percent increase in overseas visitors with 2.4 million in Q1 2012 compared to Q1 2011. Said Tony Lapi, chairman of the Visit Florida board and president of the Tween Waters Inn Island Resort on Captiva: We know that every 85 visitors support one Florida job, so the continued increase in travelers to our great state equals a strengthened Florida economy and much-needed employment. Primary data collected at Floridas 14 major airports in the first quarter of 2012 reflect a 2.5 percent increase in enplanements from the same period in 2011. Tourism and recreation taxable sales for Florida increased year-over-year in January and February 2012 (last reported month), representing an 8.7 percent increase over the same period in 2011.

The rebuild was originally slated to cost $38.6 million, funded largely through a low-interest federal stimulus loan. The unsuitable soil was discovered earlier this year beneath the footprint of a planned elementary school wing that will accommodate students being transferred from Glynn Archer Elementary School.The soil, which contains toxins like arsenic and nickel, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection, is being stored on Rockland Key; with the extra money, crews from Coastal Construction will truck the material to a mainland landfill.Superintendent Jesus Jara said that because the contaminated soil was found on the school site, he will meet with state officials on Thursday to discuss the need to conduct further testing around the campus to rule out the possibility of additional contaminants. Started under Jaras predecessor Joseph Burke in 2010, the HOB project has been marked by cost overruns and delays in the work schedule despite a number of consultants brought in to manage the process.To that end, Jara is also asking the board to discontinue a contract with Zumbrunnen Consulting, based in Atlanta.Jara said with Zumbrunnen consultant Bill Pippinne off the project, local project consultant Bill Sprague would take over sole responsibility. When we looked at the budget, we decided were very comfortable with Bill Sprague, Jara said. Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer said the $300,000 would come in part from a capital account, with the remainder derived from the proceeds of the Harris School sale to a private developer in 2009 for $4.25 million.Contaminated dirt found at HOB siteBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSeminar this week looks at wreck sitesTwo shipwreck sites off Duck Key serve as a wet classroom for a seminar this week in preserving Floridas underwater heritage. Florida Public Archaeology Network staff will point out stark differences between the two sites: One mostly intact and blended into the marine environment, the other severely disturbed by souvenir scavengers. Every time we go out to the Brick Wreck, there is a little bit less of the shipwreck left, said Della ScottIreton, a regional director for the archaeology network based at the University of West Florida in Pensacola. Its a shallow wreck, in about 12 feet, so people snorkel it and take pieces from it, Scott-Ireton said Monday. This is what happens when people take more than photos. Were trying to get the point across that shipwreck sites are part of our underwater cultural heritage, and part of the marine environment. Every time somebody takes a piece home, it not only damages an historic site but destroys somebodys home, she said. Marine creatures live on all these sites in a very symbiotic relationship. The two-day Heritage Awareness Diving Seminar on Thursday and Friday attracts scuba instructors from much of the country, certifying them to teach a diving specialty course in heritage awareness. Three of the top dive-certification agencies PADI, NAUI and SSI recognize the course. The Florida Public Archaeology Network works in partnership with the state Division of Historic Resources to promote awareness and protection of the states many historic sites, beneath the sea and on land. Diving seminars are held twice annually, with the Dive Duck Key dive shop, 61 Hawks Cay Blvd., hosting the Keys spring session for four years. The water is warm and clear, and the dive sites are close, Scott-Ireton said. Alot of our folks manage to squeeze in an extra dive or two while theyre here. The Brick Wreck is named after the cargo of a 19th Century vessel that went down, probably while carrying building material to Fort Jefferson or the Martello Towers in Key West, Scott-Ireton said. Remains of the Mystery Wreck, a documented Spanish fleet vessel that may date to 1600s, lies on a patch reef along Hawk Channel, inshore of the main reef line. Its a neat little site in about 8 to 20 feet of water, an area where not a lot of people dive, Scott-Ireton said. Treasure divers picked at it in the 1970s but they lost interest pretty quickly when they realized it wasnt the type of ship that carried treasure. The seminar includes briefings on historic ship construction, what can be learned from shipwreck remains, laws protecting cultural resources, and ways to teach the specialty class to recreational divers.

This will be a good barometer of where we are as a program, said Coral Shores High School head coach Ed Holly. It springboards us into the fall. If we can do well in a competitive situation, it sets the tone for what the guys do over the summer and into the start of fall football, Holly said. Marathon High School and Keys Gate Charter will be at Coral ShoresGeorge M. Barley Jr. Stadium in Tavernier for the jamboree, a series of round-robin scrimmages beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday. Coral Shores tuned up for it with the spring Green and Gold Game, an intra-squad, full-contact scrimmage Friday. Some things we did exceptionally well. There are other things we need to work on, Holly said. But everything we did incorrectly can still be coached up. Each day is a building block in the process. Three weeks of spring drills help introduce new players to game fundamentals and the teams system, and help coaches spot players who may be able to step in for graduating seniors, Holly said. Certain individuals did exactly what we thought wed see, and there were some nice surprises, too, he said after Fridays scrimmage. The Hurricanes expect to field a deep and experienced backfield, with starting quarterback Addison DumaKenny and fullback Kodi Roberts returning for their senior seasons. Veterans Jimmy Rhyne and Eddie Dunn can run at halfback, with newcomer Juan Casanova demonstrating ability at fullback. George Jacobsen and Henry Jacobsen were seasoned as JVstarters. The Hurricane offensive line boasts returning starters Benny Cosme at center, Tyler Smith at guard and Tom Johnson at tackle. Freshman guard Chris Perez and sophomore tackle Austin Wilkens are expected to start on the right side. Will Ismer, a 6-foot-9 defensive lineman, will add tight-end duties during his senior year. Returning defensive end Terrill Taylor also plays tight end. Alberto Anderson could develop into a deep receiving threat. Dunn, Johnson and Casanova will see time at linebacker in the jamboree, with secondary coverage provided by players including Erick Enriquez, Rhyne and Anderson. This is an important week for us, Holly said Monday. Any time you go against a well-coached team like Marathon, youve got to be ready to play.Canes, Fins, Keys Gate all clash ThursdayPREP FOOTBALL Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores defenders Terrill Taylor and Ryan Vasquez bottle up halfback Jimmy Rhyne during the Hurricanesannual Green and Gold Game,an intra-squad scrimmage Friday.Spring drills end Thursday with Marathon and Keys Gate Charter arriving in Tavernier for the jamboree beginning at 6 p.m.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comConchs host South Dade Anew coach and a new system will be on display Friday night when the Key West High School football team plays South Dade in the annual spring game at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30. This should be a good test, said coach Johnny Hughes, who was named in March to succeed his uncle, Jerry Hughes. Well find out real quick what we have. So what should Conch fans expect? Agood running game and players who play hard for 48 minutes, said Hughes, who, in 19 days of spring practice, has installed a triple-option offense. That offense will be led by run-minded quarterback Donald Roberts, who will be a senior in the fall and who easily has been the most impressive player this spring, Hughes said. Dont expect Roberts to pass a lot. If everything goes well, we wont have to throw at all, Hughes said. Juniors-to-be Deonte Stemage and Norman Lopez are expected to be the speed guys in the backfield, but both could be out Friday night because of grades. Were working on getting kids eligible, Hughes said. Theres an academic responsibility along with everything else. Without Stemage and Lopez, the rushing duties will fall to Elliott Valdez and current freshman Jeffrey Annilus and Dorian Cannon. Cannon has been especially impressive. Hes a big strong kid who makes people miss, Hughes said. As for the offensive line, Hughes said, Young and not the beefiest in the world, but theyve picked up the system pretty well. The defensive line will be anchored by Valdez, who will play nose guard. Standouts in the secondary will be Roberts at safety and Laurence Marius, a returning starter at cornerback. Both the place-kicking and punting will be done by returner Ricardo Gomez. Last season, the Conchs were 5-4 and missed advancing to the state playoffs, where they havent been in eight years. South Dade was 5-5. The Conchs won four spring games in a row under Jerry Hughes. Their last spring loss was to South Dade, 20-0, in 2007, when Robert James was the coach.Its 1st test for new offenseBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALLIron-distance event raising concernsSafety and traffic concerns could halt plans for the first ever iron-distance triathlon in the Keys in January. Monroe County Sheriffs Office Capt. Gene Thompson told the County Commission on May 16 that issues with the 112-mile bike route and timing of the event could cause problems along U.S. 1 in the Lower Keys. Iron-distance triathlons consist of individual competitors swimming 2.4 miles, bicycling 112 miles and running a 26.2-mile marathon in a single day. Theres also an option to race half that distance. The inaugural Bone Island Triathlon event is scheduled for Jan. 12, 2013. Its slated to begin at 7 a.m. and conclude at midnight on Duval Street in Key West. Our concern is at some point, were going to have to stop traffic and its going to hinder traffic flow. Were going to get complaints, and impatient and upset motorists, Thompson said. Our suggestion is to change the date. We do understand the economic impact it brings, but our concern is the date and if they can change their routes. Questor Multisport owner and race Director Richard Langdon said he was unaware Thompson discussed the event with the commission. He said hes been working with Thompson to plan the event for months. We agreed to a route in January with them, but we changed it because we had citizens who didnt want the route to go through their neighborhood, Langdon said, referring to Sugarloaf Key homeowners that complained about the bike route going through their neighborhood. Langdon was clear theres no intention to change the date of the event. This is a new market for the Lower Keys and its a huge event. Wed like to do it in January because theres nowhere else in North America where you can goJan.12 event might see route changeBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comTRIATHLONSee Ironman,2BNo current? Move alongThe reef and wrecks are offering up a bounty of fun fishing with tasty rewards these days. As the mutton snapper are spawning, the bite on the wrecks is outstanding, with lots of fish in the 10to 15-pound class. There are also medium-size amberjack and jack crevalle to pull on between mutton bites. On the reef, there are all the yellowtails, mangroves and smaller fiveto 10-pound muttons you can handle. The yellowtails are taking shrimp and cut bait, such as silversides and filleted ballyhoo. The deepest areas of the reef produce the best fishing for flag yellowtails as long as you have good current. If theres a lack of current, move shallower for slightly smaller fish in the 15to 16-inch range. Theyre more apt to bite than their bigger brethren. The mangroves and muttons are eating small live baits, especially pinfish. Upgrade your yellowtail gear to heavier, 15to 20-pound tackle for the best success. The grouper bite is also good but, again, if you have current. No current, no bite. Dolphin fishing has been rather sporadic. While there are plenty of fish in the 10to 20pound category, you have to travel 30-plus miles offshore for fish approaching 40 pounds or more. While youre on the dolphin hunt, keep an eye out for wahoo and tripletail, as theyre out there in fair numbers. Tarpon season continues at the bridges and in Key West Harbor.

Jersey Shore fishing buddies Neil Dougherty and John Holloway enjoyed three days of dolphin fishing with Capt. Howard Kelley and mate Neil Apley aboard the Papa Pips. More dolphin came back to the Captain Pips dock with Bob and Susan Hazen, from Delaware, and Arnold Forman, who fished aboard the Papa Pips with Capt. Bob Kidwell and mate Mike Rathbun. Their largest fish weighed in at 40 pounds. Also fishing with Kidwell and Rathbun, the Olson family from Middleburg, Fla., caught mutton and yellowtail snapper. Thane Forthman and his son Jake, from South Carolina, returned to fish three trips on the SeaSquared with orders for tarpon and dolphin mounts going to Gray Taxidermy along with lots of tasty grouper and snapper shipped back home. Mike Tackett and Pat Maxwell, from Georgia, had a great time tarpon fishing as did Mark and Patty Beaudin, from Wisconsin, who added a reef trip that netted mutton and yellowtail snapper. The SeaSquared finished off the week with a combo shark/snapper trip for the Cameron family from Alberta Canada and another very productive reef trip for Ron and Andrea Walters from Georgia Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, put his anglers on tarpon ranging from 40 to 115 pounds on the incoming tide in front of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. The snapper bite on the outer bar and east of the main ship channel produces lots of yellowtail and mangrove lunches. Keeping his anglers busy on the flats are big barracuda and American sharp nose sharks, while red and Goliath grouper are fun to catch on the wrecks while waiting for the permit to take the crab baits.Casting ContestCapt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at Saltys Waterfront Grill, located at the 7 Mile Marina, mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon.

We think theres a good opportunity here and its a huge economic impact for the Keys, he said. Langdon said hes confident the event will go on as planned and that hes nearly secured event permits from the city of Key West, Monroe County and state departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection. Its going to happen. We have all the permits pretty much wrapped up, he said. Thompson said the Sheriffs Office, Monroe County and DOTall sign off on the same permit and that Langdon is still at the drawing board in reference to their routes. You cant make it completely different because theres only one road. You only have so much space to put it in, he said. At one point in time, do we get to a saturation point? Can we work with these groups to come down here during transition time rather than peak times? Commissioner George Neugent said, referring to tourist season. Commissioner Heather Carruthers said Jan. 12 could be a good date because there is traditionally a tourism lull after the Christmas season. She owns a guesthouse in Key West. Ive been doing market research for years and theres always been a lull in spending after Christmas. In terms of the winter months, this is probably one of the less busy weeks, she said. Should it happen, Langdon said the race is capped at 1,000 participants.

Bullyopens at the TropicThey punch me in the jaw, they strangle me, they knock things out of my hand, they take things from me, sit on me. They push me so far that I want to become the bully, says 12-year-old Alex of Sioux City, Iowa.For him, the bullying begins before he boards the school and only gets worse when he gets to school. Alex is the subject of one of five stories of violence and heartbreak during the course of a school year in the new film Bully.Directed by Sundance and Emmy winning director Lee Hirsch, Bully opens Friday at Key Wests nonprofit Tropic Cinema. Monroe County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara will introduce the 6:15 p.m. screening of the documentary this Friday.Florida Board of Education member and former Keys Superintendent John Padget has made a grant to the Tropic, on Eaton Street, so educators and students can see any screening of Bully for only $3. He said: This is a film for students, parents, teachers, administrators and citizens of all ages. This films timely arrival contributes to Americas conversation about bullying. Bullying has become epidemic among American teens.In 2009, 20 percent of high school students reported being bullied at school in the previous 12 months. The National Association of School Psychologists estimates that more than 160,000 students miss school every day because they fear being bullied.Bullying has always been with us, Jara said. But in Monroe County, we are very aware of the issue and try to educate teachers, students and families about the signs and dangers of bullying.Bully follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been jailed after bringing a gun on her school bus.With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principalsoffices, the film offers insight into the often-cruel world of the lives of bullied children.The $3 cost is for school administrators, teachers with educator ID and students only; regular Tropic member and non-member prices apply to all other moviegoers.
