Grouper catchThe pace is picking up for dolphin and grouper, captains report. Story, 1B 4-3 vote splits CommissionBob Vitas, most recently a village administrator in Illinois, will take over for Jim Scholl as Key West city manager on July 1, pending a successful contract negotiation. In a tight 4-3 vote, the Key West City Commission on Monday picked Vitas, who most recently served as village administrator of Lake Zurich, Ill. from 2007-11, over Thaddeus Cohen, formerly a secretary of the Florida Department of Community Affairs. Commissioners Clayton Lopez, Billy Wardlow and Tony Yaniz had Cohen as their top pick. When faced with the four-vote majority favoring Vitas, the trio ultimately switched to make the vote unanimous. Thronged after the meeting by residents and city staff eager to make their introductions, Vitas said he would work with Scholl, commissioners and Mayor Craig Cates to understand issues facing the city before coming on board as the top administrator. "When people change chairs," Vitas told the Keynoter, "just like with the presidency, there has to be an exchange of information." In addition to Cohen, Vitas beat out Gary La Venia, township manager of Maple Shade, N.J. and Craig Lonon, retired after 30 years leading various municipalities, mostly in Texas. During Monday's public meeting, Lopez questioned Lonon about a 2009 incident in which a Harlingen, Texasarea judge sued Lonon, then city manager of Harlingen, allegedly asking for specially set bond hearings for a prominent resident in violation of ethics policies. Lonon, who attended Monday's special-call meeting, did not respond to those specific allegations. But Lopez did hear quick reprimands from some of his commission colleagues. "Those were really damning statement [Lopez] just made without any documentation," Commissioner Teri Johnston said. Mayor Craig Cates said he was "disappointed that things were brought up against a candidate unsubstantiated at this time and making him defend itBob Vitas gets nod over Cohen after close vote on managerSEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSee VITAS,3A Is fitness a factorin recent dive deaths?Agrim week in Florida Keys waters saw two scuba divers and one snorkeler die within a four-day span. Circumstances in each of the separate and unrelated incidents vary but one common factor stands out the three victims, all visitors to the Keys, were between the ages of 62 and 66. Since the deaths occurred from Thursday to Sunday, no definite cause was available from the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office by press time. Older divers do need to be constantly aware of added strain that diving puts on their hearts, said Neal Pollock, a physiologist and research director at Divers Alert Network, an international diving health and safety organization. Pollock declined comment on this week's three deaths since only limited information has been released. "In general terms, we know the diving population is aging and people remain active in diving for longer periods," Pollock said. That can be "a concern," particularly for those who gain weight and let their physical fitness lapse, said Pollock, author of several research papers on diving and fitness. "People don't need to hang up their flippers if they do the things necessary to avoid being forced to hang up their flippers," Pollock said. This week's deaths: Anne Morey, 64, of Monterey, Tenn., perished during a dive in a rock quarry just yards off U.S. 1 in Tavernier. Robert Morey, 65, said they got into the water together but he wasn't carrying enough weight to submerge, according to a Monroe County Sheriff's Office report. While Robert went to get more dive weights, his wife told him that she would meet him on the bottom and started her dive. After about 20 minutes, Robert entered the water and found his wife at a depth of about 40 feet. She was not breathing, he told Deputy Matt Koval. He inflated her buoyancy compensator and brought her to the surface, but could not remove her from the water. He called for help. An ambulance took Anne Morey to Mariners Hospital where she was pronounced dead. John Dowicki, 66, from Venice, Fla., was on a Saturday morning snorkel trip, on a commercial boat out of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Dowicki joined his wife and a group snorkeling at Grecian Rocks, at the reef about five miles off Key Largo. Members of the vessel's crew saw him drifting away, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. "They yelled to him and threw him a line, but he was not responsive." The boat's first mate swam to reach Dowicki, but found he was not breathing. Resuscitation attempts on the boat's emergency return to shore were not successful. Dowicki was pronounced dead by paramedics at the dock. The body of Raymond Lent, 62, of Oswego, Ill., was recovered around 12:30 p.m. Friday, about 26 hours after he disappeared on a scuba trip to Davis Ledge off Plantation Key. When Lent had trouble submerging, he reportedly swam back toward theAging dive population now a focusDIVINGKeys students perform better on math testsMonroe County students scored better than their peers statewide on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in reading, mathematics and science. Results released Tuesday by the state Department of Education, showed 62 percent of Keys students tested in grades three through 10 scored 3 or better. Statewide, that percentage scoring 3 or better was 57 percent, up one percent from scores reported last year when the tests were rated easier. The state tests are scored on a scale of 1-5, with a grade of 3 indicating proficiency. Students in grades threeeight took the math assessment with 63 percent of Keys students tested scoring a 3 or better. That compares to 57 percent of students statewide. Students in grades five and eight took the science test. Statewide, 51 percent of fifth graders scored a 3 or better and 46 percent of eighth graders scored the same; those numbers are unchanged from the previous year. In Monroe County, 59 percent of fifth graders scored a 3 or better and 56 percent of eighth graders scored a 3 or better. This was the first time Florida students took the new, more rigorous FCAT2.0. In December 2011, the State Board of Education reviewed data showing the impact of new achievement levels on students and schools. Based on the data and feedback from educators, parents, and community members, the State Board raised the expectations for Florida's students and set new achievement levels for FCAT 2.0.

DEO staffers Patrick Howard and Roger Wilburn will meet with city officials for the day before taking public input on the zip-line at an informal public meeting at the Marathon Public Library near mile marker 48.5. City Community Services Director Susie Thomas said the meeting was arranged at the request of DEO. "They requested the meeting and that I set up a place for it. It's not going to be a real detailed meeting. They're here for a site visit and it's something they wanted to do," she said. The City Council agreed to support Crane Point's plan by applying for a $735,000 Community Development Block Grant on behalf of the nonprofit. The DEO grant would help build the estimated $1.1 million course.Deb Curlee, a board member of local environmental group Last Stand, has been a vocal opponent of the attraction. She's also a member of Keep Crane Point Natural, another local group that formed in opposition to the zip-line. "Keep Crane Point Natural asked the DEO for a meeting because we wanted to express our feelings about putting a zipline. Of course, we're against it," Curlee said. "We have some documentation to give to him, which we've sent to him already, of the reasons why we oppose it." The two groups claim a zip-line would interfere with wildlife habitat, and they have also raised doubts about Crane Point's projections that the new attraction would create 21 jobs. The block grant requires the 21 jobs remain for at least one year, or the city would have to pay back $35,000 to the state for each job not created. Crane Point has said it would cover the cost of up to four jobs (equivalent to $140,000) if necessary. According to DEO spokesman James Miller, the majority of the visit Thursday will be spent "monitoring" the zip-line project and another CDBG grant intended to pay for lateral sewer connections for low-income residents."In an effort to reduce state costs, DEO is combining a monitoring visit of the city's...[sewer hookup] project with the Crane Point site visit. The monitoring will take up a substantial amount of the day on Thursday," he said. Miller said Howard and Wilburn would briefly visit Crane Point to examine the site. "DEO staff will be visiting [Crane Point] to ensure that the CDBG funded activities have not yet commenced construction. It will be a very brief visit. Typically, staff meets with the job creator at the city's office," he said. The meeting with DEO officials is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The library is located at 3251 Overseas Highway, Marathon. Public meeting planned ThursdayRYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONThe Studios reports it's going to stay at ArmoryThe Studios of Key West, based on a lease agreement reached last week, will stay in its location at the historic armory building on White Street. Rosi Ware, chairwoman of The Studios board of directors, says the specifics of the lease are not available until state officials approve the document. The building is owned by the state of Florida and managed by the Historic Florida Keys Foundation.In April, Ware made it known her organization could no longer afford the annual rent of $143,204, instead offering to pay $116,244 ."I am unable to divulge any details," Ware says, "suffice it to say that the agreed rent is within our means and we can now plan for the upcoming season with confidence, knowing that we will remain in the armory." The Historic Florida Keys Foundation, established in 1972, manages the armory, Old City Hall on Greene Street, the Harry S. Truman Little White House and the Oldest House on Duval Street. In the run up to the agreement, reached on June 1, supporters of The Studios launched a letter writing campaign, directed toward newspaper editorial pages and Foundation directors, pressing for a compromise. "We are very thankful for all the support we have received from our patrons, members and the community during this time," Ware says. "The Studios will be able to continue to make a positive difference to the community in Key West and beyond for many years to come." The Studios of Key West was founded in 2008 and moved into the Armory, then lost their major funding source, the Rodel Foundation. The arts/cultural organization provides studio space for artists; hosts concerts, lectures and a variety of workshops; and offers a number of residencies for visiting artists. The armory, located at 600 White St., was built in 1903. Foundation chairwoman Melissa Kendrick could not be reached Tuesday for comment.

Published Keynoter 6/6/12 Savings fall short on outsourcing bus fleetBased on bids received, potential savings projected for outsourcing the school district's transportation operation fell short of $600,000. The Monroe County School District evaluation committee got three bids. On Monday, Corey Wybensinger, district purchasing accountant, recommended the proposal submitted by Student Transportation of America, based in Jacksonville, Fl. That company says it can run the transportation operation for $2,676,200, compared to the district's current costs of about $3.1 million. That would project a savings of $423,800. When Superintendent Jesus Jara presented a list of preliminary budget cuts totaling $6.3 million earlier this year, he pegged potential savings from transportation outsourcing at $600,000. The other two companies that entered bids are Durham School Services and First Student. Wybensinger said the School Board would consider the recommendation at a June 28 meeting, set to begin at 5 p.m. at Coral Shores High School. He said the proposal from Student Transportation of America suggests retaining transportation staffers, including bus drivers, "as long as they're in good standing with the district and meet the company standards." The district's request for proposals outlined a scope of services that includes: "student transportation, maintenance of vehicles, routing, extra curricular transportation and any other normal transportation function." Last summer, in a similar budget crunch, the district outsourced their custodial department to private firm GCAServices Group of Tennessee. That move saved more than $800,000, according to figures provided by the district. The five-person evaluation committee working on the bids included district staffers Wanda Mendez, Jeff Barrow, Cheryl Allen, David Murphy and Transportation Supervisor Kayleen Watts. They selected Student Transportation of America as the preferred proposal.Committee recommends Jacksonville firmSEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSCHOOLSFlorida Keys Dive Center boat. Lent's dive buddy told deputies that he watched Lent reach the surface and near the boat. When the buddy later surfaced, he discovered Lent was missing. The body was found Friday several miles farther out to sea. So far in 2012, six people have died while on diving or snorkeling trips in the Keys four since May 10. Pollock noted that simple immersion in water adds pressure to the body, which adds to pressure on the heart. "Then factor in heavy dive gear, more weight and breathing resistance," he said. "It all has an effect on the cardiovascular system." In a DAN survey of deaths during Florida's lobster-diving season, heart attacks were the most common cause. "If people maintain reasonable physical fitness, they can dive a lot of years," Pollock said. "But they do have to stay fit enough to dive."

Wednesday,June 6,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com in front of everybody..." "I feel like I'm forced to respond to that," Lopez replied, "only because this was not intended to be a last minute ambush. I just wanted Mr. Lonon to have an opportunity to explain it; I was not trying to throw a curve ball at him." In the first tally of support, Commissioner Mark Rossi picked Lonon, leaving three in favor of Vitas and three for Cohen; during a second vote count, Rossi broke the tie by switching his pick to Vitas. City Attorney Shawn Smith said he would ask the commission for specific direction related to contract negotiations with Vitas. That meeting Tuesday night played out after press time. The city's advertised salary for the city manager post was set at $180,000 per year. Scholl, formerly the commanding officer of Naval Air Station Key West, announced in January that he would not seek a contract extension after five years with the city. Other than his most recent post, Vitas has been city manager in Lewiston, Maine, and Menasha, Wisc. Vitas has also undertaken a number of short-term government advising contract jobs, working in BosniaHerzegovina, the Republic of Zambia, the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Uganda. Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Vitas worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and city of New Orleans on a "long term community recovery program."Rossi broke the tieFrom City Manager,1A Keynoter Photo by SEAN KINNEYBob Vitas and Key West City Manager Jim Scholl Medicaid billing dispute goes into extra inningsState Agency for Health Care Administration officials were in the Keys Monday to meet with Monroe County officials about a controversial new Medicaid billing law signed by the governor. The law (House Bill 5301) strips counties of the right to dispute Medicare claims as they have in years past and demands repayment of retroactive bills from November 2001 through April this year. At that meeting, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said state officials gave the county a preliminary estimate of $3.6 million due, but that a more concrete number would be ready by July. "We're obviously hoping it's less," he said. "Then there's a payment plan. We'll discuss with our commissioners to see how we're going to pay for it or if we're going to question it." AHCAadministers the Medicaid program, which provides health care for lowincome residents, and bills counties for their portion of patient costs. According to AHCA, it will certify retroactive billings with the Department of Revenue by Sept. 15. Counties have the option to accept the amount and receive a 15 percent discount, or dispute it and pay 100 percent with the option to pursue administrative hearings for later reimbursements. AHCAChief of Staff Karen Zeiler told the Keynoter on Monday that statewide the count on retroactive claims totals 1.3 million. Figures provided by AHCAshow that Monroe County had 8,676 Medicaid recipients in fiscal year 201011, accounting for $37.13 million in expenditures. Over 3.5 million residents used the program statewide, at a cost of $16.22 billion. Monroe County's main issue is paying claims on patients who give false addresses. But Zeiler told the Keynoter a Florida rule allows homeless people to claim whatever address they'd like as their official residence.

Ollie M. Smithwick III, 39, an anesthesiologist at the Cookeville (Tenn.) Regional Medical Center, was found on the deck of the Vandenberg shipwreck off Key West. Earlier this week, the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office was awaiting laboratory results to rule on the cause of death. Around 8 a.m. May 10, Smithwick made a solo dive from his rented boat to go spearfishing at the 520-footlong Vandenberg, descending the mooring line at Buoy 4. Two companions, Cookeville residents Sean Bein and Daniel Lilligren, followed several minutes later. They separated once reaching the shipwreck. Bein, a relatively inexperienced diver, spotted a speared fish thrashing in the water near the stern. Bein swam to alert Lilligren and continued his dive. At the stern, Lilligren found the fish, a dead amberjack. He followed a line from the speared fish to Smithwick's body, lying face-up on the deck at about 65 feet. Smithwick's mask was off and his breathing regulator was out of his mouth, he told investigators. Lilligren tried to bring Smithwick to the surface, but Smithwick's buoyancy compensator was damaged., With his own tank running low on air, an "exhausted" Lilligren surfaced to call for help, police said. Aboat from Dive Key West responded. Divers Brad Pait and Jeremy Hansberger found Smithwick and recovered the body. A line from the spear that hit the fish also was attached to Smithwick's buoyancy compensator with a hitch pin. It had become wrapped around the shipwreck's deck rails. The line had to be cut to bring Smithwick to the surface. "This indicates [Smithwick] had the spear gun attached to his gear when he shot the fish and it entangled itself in the railing of the ship," investigator Manuel Cuervo wrote. Smithwick attended Marathon High School and Island Christian School while living in the Keys.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday,June 6,2012No-trap areas in Keys on agenda in OrlandoRed snapper, golden crabs and colorful trap line will be among issues going before a federal fishery council this week. Committees of the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council on Monday begin four days of meetings in Orlando, leading to a full council session June 15. Those sessions at the Renaissance Orlando Airport Hotel launch an unusually hectic June for state and federal fishery managers. The federal Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council meets from June 1821 in Tampa. Florida's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission then convenes for a June 2728 session in West Palm Beach. The South Atlantic Council is expected to review a coral-protection plan that would ban lobster traps and stone-crab traps in five dozen areas along Florida Keys reef. After working with local conservation groups and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to modify a draft plan for the -no-trap areas, the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen's Association endorses the proposal on the table. "Our traps have a minimal impact on the coral," association executive director Bill Kelly said. "But we're been able to come up with a plan that protects areas that have coral and lets us fish valuable areas that don't have coral." Commercial fishermen also will seek approval to work with state researchers to come up with a plan to find a low-cost way to mark trap lines with color. Federal researchers want to be able to identify the fishery when lost buoy rope is recovered. Aproposal by South Atlantic Council staff to create a catch-share program for the fledgling golden-crab fishery is expected to create debate. The deepwater crabs that live in waters more than 1,800 feet down now is fished by only seven operations, including one in the Lower Keys. Kelly said setting a share program in a fishery that has the potential to grow would harm fishermen who seek to diversify in the wake of increasing regulation. For information, see the website: SAFMC.net. Red snapper and king mackerel issues are expected to be handled at the Gulf of Mexico Council meeting at the Hilton Westshore in Tampa. Monroe County commercial fishermen will seek an increase in the daily poundage limit for the hookand-line mackerel fishery, Kelly said. Keys fishermen now are limited to 1,250 pounds per day, substantially less than mainland fishermen, but have a longer run to reach fishing grounds. Aperceived rebound in Gulf of Mexico red snapper stocks also will be on the agenda. At the FWC meeting in West Palm Beach, the sevenmember board will learn whether three current members will be reappointed. An update of the snook stocks, which were severely harmed by the January 2010 cold snap, will also be presented. South Atlantic Council takes up multiple issuesFISHERIESImproved water standards get renewed state focusAn $880-million proposal to settle a decades-old legal squabble over the Florida Everglades could reach the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today. Staff with the South Florida Water Management District, the state's lead agency on Everglades restoration, planned to submit permit applications for the plan today to meet a deadline imposed by the EPA. "This is all about setting new standards for the quality of water that enters the natural system of the Everglades," said Eric Draper, executive director of Audubon Florida. Audubon Florida is one of the environmental groups taking part in a federal lawsuit against the state for not doing enough to protect the Everglades system that includes Florida Bay. "This cleanup is long overdue," Draper said. "This appears to reflect an agreement between Gov. [Rick] Scott and the Obama Administration. It's welcome news." At a special meeting Monday, the South Florida Water Management District board learned details of the complex plan that would build five new stormwatertreatment areas and change watermanagement operations to reduce nutrients that result in unwanted types of plant growth. The Water Management District did not take a formal vote, but eight of nine board members indicated support for the permit application. The proposal still must be approved by the EPAand a federal judge who ruled that Florida has not met legal standards. The Florida Legislature also must agree to the spending plan. "Florida Bay is the ultimate victim of bad water management," Draper said. "If fresh water coming through the system is not managed well, Florida Bay winds up getting too little or too much." Currently, massive quantities of fresh water needed for the Everglades and Florida Bay cannot be released because the water holds contaminants from farming areas, Draper said. Paul Tudor Jones II, chairman of the Everglades Foundation, endorsed the proposal as "beginning a promising new era for restoring America's Everglades...They have crafted a sound plan, with achievable project goals, that will make a meaningful difference in restoring this unique national treasure." Friends of the Everglades, which filed the original federal lawsuit, still harbors doubts about the plan, according to news reports.Audubon,water managers draft new approachCONSERVATIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Marathon principal draws suspensionHammond Gracy, the Marathon Middle/High School principal accused of sexual harassment, will be suspended for three days without pay, according to Superintendent Jesus Jara. Jara on Tuesday reviewed an investigative report prepared by Chief Operations Officer Michael Kinneer and Theresa Axford, executive director of operations. From the report: "Mr. Gracy's actions did not rise to the level required to constitute a hostile work environment or sexual harassment. However, we do believe that he needs to address management decisions." Specifically, the report says Gracy needs to work on "distributive leadership...appropriate collaboration skills...recognize and reward thoughtful dissent...[and] sustaining the highest degree of ethical conduct." Gracy was removed from his position when the allegations surfaced in early May; he was reassigned to Monroe County School District headquarters on Trumbo Point in Key West. Gracy will take part in graduation ceremonies on June 7, beginning at 8 p.m. on the football field, as an anticipated 64 Middle Keys seniors receive their diplomas; his suspension will be served after teachers leave for the summer.Will be able to attend graduation SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSCHOOLS GRACY By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com National Park ServiceGreat blue heron phtographed in Everglades National Park.Statewide test results rated a surpriseFlorida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson said Tuesday that students exceeded expectations on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT2.0). Results for FCAT2.0 Reading and Mathematics indicate students did better than expected overall when measured on the more demanding standards. The 2011-12 school year is the first time that new achievement levels are in place for FCAT2.0 Reading and Mathematics, he said. "Florida is leading the nation by preparing our children for more challenging Common Core Standards and assessments. I applaud our students and teachers for their inspired efforts," Robinson added. "Our state has spent more than a decade reforming public education and we know that sound transition takes time and patience. Florida's children will compete for the jobs of tomorrow and we must do everything possible to ensure that they are ready. We cannot be fearful of change and the ambitious goals set before us. We will meet them together and I am confident that our students are on the path to success." In both reading and mathematics, students performed better based on applying new, higher standards to 2011 performance data. Results for 2012 FCAT2.0 Reading tests show that 59 percent of students in grades four through eight are performing at Achievement Level 3 and above (compared to 57 percent in 2011*). In FCAT2.0 Mathematics, 2012 results show that 57 percent of students in grades four through eight are performing at Achievement Level 3 and above (compared to 56 percent in 2011*). Results for 2012 FCAT 2.0 Science for grades five and eight were also released Tuesday. Those results show that 51 percent of students in grade five performing at or above Achievement Level 3, and 46 percent in grade eight. Results for 2012 FCAT2.0 Science are reported as FCAT Equivalent Scores. This means that student scores were measured using the existing FCATAchievement Level scoring table. Scores on the new, tougher FCAT2.0 Science achievement scale will be available beginning in 2013. While the state does not base grade promotion or student progression decisions on the FCAT2.0 results released today, individual districts may have progression policies tied to the scores. As a valuable indicator of student achievement, FCAT 2.0 scores give parents and educators the ability to make informed educational decisions, Robinson said.Students did better than expected'Keynoter StaffSCHOOLS

EDITORIALOnline tracking bad for burglarsLETTERS TO THE EDITORCulture thrivingAdiamond in the rough was uncovered at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center. The theater existing at this Key Largo location has been rendered a soul. The Friends of the Key Largo Cultural Center have been breathing life into their beautiful creation for quite some time. Through their love, integrity, courage, commitment and creative genius, all of our citizens have had the opportunity to enjoy a diverse cross-section of brilliantly orchestrated events. These Friends under the direction of Monroe County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy and President Kay Thacker are going to break ground on a renovation to the theater so that dressing rooms, restrooms and storage space are available for the artists and instructors presiding at events. Initially, there had been some disappointment with the excessive cost and fees associated with utilizing this taxpayer-built project. Apparently, the County Commission has stepped up and worked through all of the obstacles that stood in the way of this facility being used as intended. It appears that the commission has worked toward developing a relationship with some generous benefactors that have partnered with the county in defraying some of the expenses involved with the operation of this facility. By accident, I walked into a board meeting being held by the previously mentioned group. My intent was to graciously leave and go about my business. However, the energy that was projected by the members in attendance was extraordinarily powerful and magnificent. The positive and intelligent manner in which they addressed one another while discussing the issues at hand was a refreshing example of how effectively individuals can relate to one another when they really want to. The Friends of the Key Largo Cultural Center is a beautiful group of individuals. Even if you can't make the next event at the cultural center, perhaps you can stop by during their next meeting. You will be revitalized and recharged at no cost of admission. John Donnelly Key LargoHelp cat groupOn May 29, the Purr-Fect Thrift Shop in Marathon, which benefits Keys Forgotten Felines, was burglarized. Luckily none of the cats residing at the store while waiting for homes escaped or were injured in the process. In addition to money being stolen from the cash register, the thieves broke a nearly new air conditioning unit with a replacement cost of $350. Forgotten Felines is reaching out to our wonderful Keys community to ask for help to recover from the loss. Whether a cash donation, household items to sell in the store or an air conditioner, any donation will be greatly appreciated. Forgotten Felines is a nonprofit organization run by Middle Keys citizens to help homeless and abandoned cats. Our primary goal is to trap, spay/neuter, treat and release these felines, and to find homes for the adoptable ones. Lisa Watson MarathonMonroe County Sheriff's Office invests in high-tech equipment to locate stolen merchandiseThe Monroe County Sheriff's Office should hang out a sign at the entrance to the Florida Keys saying: "Burglars beware." Break-ins at Keys businesses and residences are a recurring problem, especially given the seasonal nature of residency and the transient population living here. Starting this month, the Sheriff's Office will deploy a new software tracking system that should make it easier to track stolen items that wind up being pawned. Business Watch International, a Canadian firm that opened its U.S. subsidiary in 2002, sells an online database system that helps track transactions by secondhand dealers like pawnshops and is shared by law enforcement agencies across jurisdictions. In metropolitan Washington, D.C., this approach gave 19 law enforcement agencies in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia ready access to information that's proven very helpful in cracking down on fraudulent activities. Within the first six months, law enforcement agencies in the D.C. area using the live database system recorded 1,320 arrests and recovered more than $4 million worth of stolen goods. Here in Monroe County, the BMI software will cost $8,000 per year but will save a lot more than that in time lost tracking down pawnshop reports the old fashioned way on foot. Florida law currently requires anyone holding a secondhand dealer's license to record serial numbers of pawned items, who pawned it and a fingerprint. Before acquiring the BMI system, the Sheriff's Office had to send a deputy to each business to retrieve the logs, then pay clerical staff to enter the information into a database before the information was available to detectives working burglary and stolen-property cases. With the new system, businesses enter the information directly into an online database, giving local law enforcement and other participating agencies instant access to search for stolen items. This will help speed up investigations and result in more cases being solved, police said. For an $8,000 annual investment, that may prove to be one of the best bargains around. By ANDY NEWMANFlorida Keys News ServiceAs Queen Elizabeth II wraps up her Diamond Jubilee celebration, I am reminded of her 1991 visit to Fort Jefferson, a 19th century fort in the Florida Keys that is part of the Dry Tortguas National Park about 70 miles west of Key West. Our office was involved in some of the trip's logistics including securing the opportunity for Wilhelmina Harvey, the late mayor of the Florida Keys and "Queen" of the Conch Republic, to welcome Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip and her entourage. I managed to wrangle a spot in the press pool to provide images to the Associated Press, United Press International and other media outlets. After the queen and her party stepped ashore, Mayor Harvey gave her a Honorary Conch Certificate and a conch shell, the symbol of the Florida Keys. During the presentation, I was a bit irritated because Queen Elizabeth had her back to the camera. I so much wanted to get her to turn around, but the British consulate press person had briefed us earlier and said that under no circumstances should we shout or instruct the queen what to do. So I just kept quiet, but have always been disappointed we didn't have at least one really nice photo for Wilhelmina that showed her with Queen Elizabeth. However, the saga of the Queen's visit to the Florida Keys didn't end quite at Fort Jefferson. Legend has it that if a conch shell is taken inside a home, bad luck will follow. Prior to her death in 2005, at age 93, Wilhelmina often enjoyed telling the rest of the story about the conch shell given to the queen, even though there was no valid proof of the shell legends impact. As Wilhelmina told the tale, when the royal couple returned to England the shell was taken inside Windsor Castle, along with other gifts the Queen received on her trip to America. Wilhelmina often jokingly said that fellow Conchs blamed her for what happened in England after the Queen returned. Her Windsor Castle home was damaged by fire in November 1992 and her two sons Charles and Edward divorced. All from the "curse" of a conch shell taken inside a home. We'll never know if that's true, but it makes a darn good story.CELEBRATING OUR PASTPoor hiring choiceI would like to comment on the Monroe County Sheriff's Office hiring the former Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent who quit that agency following his no-contest plea topetty theft. I was reading the Sheriff's Office code of ethics. Is this the reputation we want for our Sheriff's Office, having this man on the force? Will hiring this man have any influence on our judgments, opinions or thoughts concerning the officers of the Sheriff's Office? From the code of ethics: "The image the members of the office present, both on and off duty, serves as a tool for the public to measure the level of professionalism of the office. I will act in the execution of my duties with integrity, dignity and honor to merit the trust of the community and the profession, and apply honesty, skill, judgment and initiative to contribute positively to the well-being of society. "I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all, honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life. Will be exemplary in observing the laws of the land and the regulations of my agency; I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. "With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held as long as I am true to the ethics of law enforcement service.

TODAROBattered BlackBerry makerweighs optionsBlackBerry maker Research in Motion has hired a team of bankers to help it weigh its options as its business erodes in the face of an exodus to the iPhone and Android smartphones. RIM issued a dire warning about its business last week, saying it is losing money for the second-consecutive quarter and will lay off a "significant" number of employees. The company based in Waterloo, Ontario, said it has hired J.P. Morgan and RBC Capital Markets to help it evaluate its options. Those including partnering with other companies, licensing software and overhauling its business, it said. RIM made no mention of selling of the company. But new Chief Executive Thorsten Heins did not rule that out after RIM's last earnings report in late March. Colin Gillis, an analyst with BGC Financial, said the company is in a downward slide that's not slowing. He said he doesn't see any buyers for RIM coming forward soon. "Unfortunately, it falls into the too little, too late category," Gillis said. "It doesn't mean somebody won't try it. It doesn't mean it's going to be a savior for the company either." The statement from RIM did not detail the coming layoffs, other than to say the company expects "significant spending reductions and headcount reductions in some areas throughout the remainder of the year." Jefferies analyst Peter Misek said he expects RIM to announce as many as 5,000 layoffs soon. The company has about 16,500 employees now after cutting 2,000 jobs in July. RIM said the company looks to save $1 billion even as it transitions to its muchdelayed BlackBerry 10 software platform expected out later this year. RIM's stock fell 7 percent, or 80 cents, to $10.43 in extended trading following the release of the company's statement. Before Tuesday's announcement, the stock had lost almost 75 percent in the last year. The company that pioneered the smartphone market with its BlackBerry phones is facing the most difficult period in its history. RIM's U.S. share of smartphones dropped from 44 percent in 2009 to 10 percent in 2011, according to market researcher NPD Group. It still has 78 million active subscribers across the globe, but Apple Inc.'s iPhone and smartphones from companies including Samsung and HTC that use Google Inc.'s Android software are gobbling up market share. "The on-going competitive environment is impacting our business in the form of lower volumes and highly competitive pricing dynamics in the marketplace," Heins said in Tuesday's statement. He said the company will likely post an operating loss when it reports its fiscal first quarter results on June 28. Heins, formerly a little known chief operating officer at RIM, took over in January after RIM founder Mike Lazaridis and longtime executive Jim Balsillie stepped down as co-CEOs after the company lost tens of billions in market value. RIM has tried to make phones with touchscreens that resemble the iPhone, but those offerings have largely flopped.Former giant falls behind the latest techBy ROB GILLIESAssociated Press TECHNOLOGY KEYSNET.COM

Keys LifeFlorida Keys Keynoter WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,JUNE 6,2012 CLASSIFIEDS INSIDE 6B Physically fit The Enhance Fitness Program for Keys seniors is widely available throughout Monroe County. Story, 5B Summer camp Florida Keys summer-camp offerings keep expanding,with everything from art programs to wildlife education.Story, 2B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Dolphin catch picking up paceStick your toe out the door and you'll notice the temps are rising steadily.If you're fishing the reef, it's best to get out early in the morning or later in the afternoon and evening, as there's not much action in the middle of the day. When we get into the real heat of the summer, this same thinking applies to dolphin fishing. On the reef, there are plenty of yellowtail for the taking. Grouper are also on the reef as well as the wrecks. They're showing a preference for large live baits, such as blue runners and grunts, although live pinfish will also work. Mutton snapper are mixed in with the tails and grouper. The fish on the reef average six to ten pounds and are biting live ballyhoo or large chunks of ballyhoo drifter back in the slick.The muttons on the wrecks are also eating ballyhoo as well as smaller pinfish, and they're mostly in the eightto twenty-pound class. Dolphin fishing has picked up pace from where it was a week ago, with more and larger fish showing in daily catches. There have even been some really nice slammers fish over 20 pounds.With the full moon having just passed, there are also good numbers of larger wahoo fish 30 pounds and up. They've been taken on floaters and around the rips offshore.There are still tarpon at the bridges and in Key West Harbor, with some bridges producing better than others on a day-by-day basis.The week's best Tim Wert and David Callen, from Indiana, had a spectacular day with Capt. Don Reichert aboard the Fishin'Mission, which is docked at Worldwide Sportsman in Islamorada.

But despite the popularity and ease of growing palms, most homeowners know only scant truths about the palms in their backyards. Palm myths have run rampant and are becoming more widely accepted than the facts. For an ornamental that is so dear to our hearts and vital to our landscape, it is a shame they are misunderstood. The time to debunk these myths is long overdue. Myth: Palms are trees. The name does lend many to believe that palms are trees. In fact, the differences between palms and trees far outweigh their similarities. Atree is a type of perennial woody plant that exhibits secondary branching from a single main trunk and has multiple growing points. Palms have an entirely different form, more closely related to grasses. Palms have only one point of new growth, the bud or palm heart, and grow from that one point. With the palm producing one new leaf at a time from the bud, the newest leaf, or spear, is easily identifiable. As a new spear is formed, the current spear will fold open and join the canopy. As the leaves age they move throughout the canopy, turn brown, die and eventually drop off. Palm trunks are not woody and cannot heal, grow, shrink or change in any way once formed. Myth: Palms are wind pollinated. While it is possible for palms to be wind pollinated, new studies prove that most palms are not. Palms are angiosperms, meaning they produce flowers with pollen and nectar. Nectar is a food source for many insect pollinators. Although the nectar reward is minimal, many insects visit palm flowers and aid in pollination. Major palm pollinators include bees, beetles, flies and wasps. Most of our native palms, such as sabal minor, or bush palmetto, attract a variety of insects to their delicate flowers, and pollination is not insect speciesspecific. In one rare case, a Fiji palm, is pollinated by native hummingbirds. The myth of wind pollination began when researchers first started studying palms in Europe. The one palm that grew in Europe near these researchers, the European fan palm, is wind pollinated. Researchers assumed that the European fan palm was the rule, not the exception. For decades, people have given credit to wind and disregarded insect pollinators. Myth Palms love the beach. When asked to think about happy palms, our minds quickly conjure images of palms lining white sand beaches. Our idealized palms revel in the beach vacation. South Florida native palm trees, along with a few other palm species, including the archetypal coconut palm, can withstand these conditions but these are in the minority. South Florida is known for its sandy, limestone soils, distinct wet and dry seasons and blazing sun. About 50 palms are suited for these conditions. The remainder of the 2,500 palm species prefer rich, acidic soils protected by the shade in regions that are warm and wet year-round. These areas are extremely dissimilar to the beaches of South Florida and the Caribbean. Much like the early researchers in Europe, we have fabricated a rule out of our own personal palm experience. Palms are much-loved landscape ornamentals used in most South Florida yards. Yet these stunning plants are shrouded in myths that detract from their true beauty. By learning the truths about our favorite landscape pieces, we increase our understanding of palms and begin to take better care of them. Next time you hear any of these palm myths, start spreading the truth and help increase awareness of the benefits of these magnificent plants.
