In totals tallied Tuesday, Griffiths received 20,587 votes, or 61.40 percent, to Mira-Talbotts 12,940 votes, or 38.60 percent. And in an extremely tight District 3 race to replace outgoing two-term incumbent Duncan Mathewson, it wasnt clear late Tuesday whether dive captain Ed Davidson or former schools administrator John Welsh will be the next board member. Not including Marathon precinct 23 and 250 absentee ballots, Davidson was up just 34 votes, with 16,100 votes, or 49.87 percent, to Welshs 16,066, or 49.77 percent. Write-in candidate Sloan Bashinsky proved to be an important factor, garnering 115 votes, 0.36 percent. Griffiths, a retired charter fishing fleet owner, was all smiles Tuesday night as returns came into the Harvey Government Center. I think I worked harder this time than Ive ever worked in the past. We probably visited 1,000 voters on foot and that goes a long way, he said. Griffiths, of Key Haven, focused his message on his experience guiding the district through financial crises and scandal. Mira-Talbott, also of Key Haven, campaigned on offering a fresh perspective, pointing to her volunteer work as her three daughters attended Key West High School, and her business experience operating an appraisal company with her husband.

Ive worked my entire career for this. Ramsay, a 46-year-old Republican who joined the Sheriffs Office after graduating from Marathon High School, defeated Democratic candidate Tom Peteck, a retired deputy, 20,802 votes, or 56.8 percent, to 15,824, or 43.2 percent.

The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says Joaquin Zambrano, 41, was charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12 and lewd and lascivious molestation of a child between age 12 and 16. Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said the girl told detectives the abuse took place between 2005 and 2009, from when she was 11 until age 16. It allegedly included fondling and other abuse.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Chris. An extraordinary man with a true sense of community, he was always eager to help those around him in any way possible. He passed at Hospice By The Sea in Boca Raton with his daughter, Sherri Bethel, cousin, Hubert Bethel, and devoted friend Chuck Andrews at his side, as well as being in the thoughts and prayers of many other family and friends. He will be sorely missed. Chris was the middle son of Warren A. and Corrine Bethel of Key West, FL. He was predeceased by his brothers Donovan and Joseph Bethel. A fter growing up in Key West, he moved to Marathon where he eventually began his 30+ year career with FL Keys Electric Co-op. Not being able to truly retire, he began a second career with DeanLopez Funeral Home in Key West where he worked until he became too ill. Sherri wishes to express her profound gratitude to the staff at Cleveland Clinic and Hospice By The Sea, as well as the scores of other people who blessed Chris rich and meaningful life. A memorial service will be held at DeanLopez Funeral Home in Key West on Nov. 11th at 4:00 p.m. His wishes were to be cremated, and we ask for no flowers.

Henry Hank Kokenzie, 44, of Key West was one of five Monroe County employees undergoing disciplinary review for buying electronics from former Technical Services Director Lisa Druckemiller, who was charged criminally in the case shortly after her resignation in February. Attempts to speak with Kokenzie about why he suddenly resigned were not successful. He was hired on Dec. 5, 2000, and earned $59,959 annually. His resignation date was Nov. 2. In other punishments stemming from the scandal and meted out by former Judge David Kirwan contracted by the county to hear the cases: Deputy County Administrator Debbie Frederick received a one-day suspension and a reprimand. Frederick directly supervised Drucke-miller and did not report an earlier incident when Druckemiller reportedly misused Fredericks personal credit card. Sewer-project administrator Elizabeth Wood and Guardian Ad Litem staffer Lacy Carabello received written reprimands for using their public position for private gain, County Attorney Bob Shillinger said Monday. Finance Director Tina Boan was cleared of inappropriate activity, Shillinger said. Tina Boan was paying for her own phone service and purchased her first iPhone from the county so she could use it for personal calls as well as conduct county business, Shillinger said. When Boan needed to replace her damaged iPhone, she contacted Druckemiller, who was in charge of county electronics purchasing. The bottom line is that Ms. Boan thought she was replacing the countys phone, Shillinger said. There was no perceived personal benefit. Acounty employee who received an iPad from Druckemiller as a Christmas gift previously was exonerated because he was unaware of how it was obtained, the attorney said. According to prosecutors and a Monroe County grand jury, Druckemiller dipped into the county budget to purchase expensive iPad computer tablets and iPhones a reported 52 electronic items in all that were improperly sold for cash or given away. Six Monroe County employees, including County Administrator Roman Gastesi, were identified as buyers. All told investigators that Drucke-miller said the items were available at low cost because the manufacturer offered bulk-purchase discounts to the county. Gastesi received a formal letter of reprimand from the Monroe County Comm-ission, and agreed to pay the cost of hiring retired Sheriff Rick Roth and Kirwan to handle additional employee discipline in the case. Gastesi bought three iPhones and one iPad from Druckemiller, paying $899 for items worth $2,325. Abill for the services of Kirwan and Roth came to $8,761, not including pending travel expenses, Shillinger said. Most of the electronics have been turned in by the purchasers. At this point, no further action is anticipated against county staff, Shillinger said. Kokenzie reportedly paid Druckemiller $1,750 for three iPads and two iPhones worth a total of $3,290. He was singled out for particular condemnation by the grand jury because of his professional expertise in electronics. Of all the people who bought cheap iPhones and iPads, [Kokenzie] is the one who should have been most skeptical of Ms. Druckemillers explanations, the jury report says. For someone with his knowledge and experience, this is the zenith of willful blindness. An investigation by the State Attorneys Office reported that Druckemillers unapproved purchases cost the county $23,311. She is accused of accepting $4,778, mostly in cash, for items she sold. Shes charged with scheme to defraud and grand theft, both felonies.Frederick gets 1-day suspension, Boan is clearedIPAD/IPHONE SCANDALBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comKonrath a Wendys Heisman finalistTaylor Konrath has racked up numerous accolades and awards in a decorated Marathon High School career. But Mondays announcement that the senior was chosen as Floridas female Wendys High School Heis-man award winner trumps them all. This is the coolest one Ive ever gotten. I was shocked when I got it, she said. I still dont think its sunk in. Its just crazy, and Monroe County has never had a [student] be a state finalist, let alone a winner. Konrath is now one of 102 finalists a male and female from each state and Washington, D.C. for the national award, given out as part of the Heisman Trophy presentation to the nations top collegiate football player in New York City. More than 45,000 high school seniors applied nationwide. Six male and six female finalists will be selected to receive an allexpenses-paid trip to New York for the Dec. 7 ceremony, at which the overall winner will be announced. It will be nationally televised on ESPN2. It started when Teresa Konrath, Taylors mother and the athletic director at Marathon High, gave her a little coupon, literally from Wendys saying where to fill out an application online. Teresa said she lets all her senior athletes know about the program. While she was at the school working, I turned it in. She didnt get involved with the application at all because of the position she holds, Taylor said They asked what my [class] rank was and my GPA. She also included various academic and athletic achievements and afterschool activities. Theres plenty to choose from: Konrath was this years homecoming queen, is a three-time class president, sports a 4.771 weighted GPA, scored a 32 on her ACT(out of 36) with a perfect math section, and lettered in four sports over six years. Konrath is also a member of the schools student Academic Advisory Council, National Honor Society, Nike Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and fishing club, among other activities. Her biggest commitment, though? Club soccer in M iami. That is probably the toughest because I have to go to Miami three days a week for practices and two games on Sunday every weekend. Its season runs almost identical with volleyball season, she said. It hasnt been unusual in recent years for Konrath to arrive home from the mainland late on a Sunday evening, only to sit down and tackle leftover homework before school Monday morning. But shes been driven to stand out from a young age. I knew I had to be different. And I knew that getting involved in everything and showing I can handle it would be a good thing, she said, noting that sports have always been an emotional release of sorts. For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com/sports.MARATHON KONRATHAlleged pot smugglers surrenderTwo men with Keys ties wanted in connection with the smuggling of more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana into Florida from Mexico turned themselves in Monday. Michael Cristello, 44, and George Tommy Capps, 36, surrendered to authorities in Bradenton through their attorneys, said Mia Ro, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Capps and Cristello live in Charlotte County, but Cristellos family has a home in Marathon, and both men are known to frequent the Keys to fish. They were wanted by the DEA, U.S. Marshals Service and the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. Nine other people were also indicted by a federal grand jury on Oct. 3 in connection with the sale and smuggling of the drugs, as well as the purchase of cars, boats and homes with the proceeds. Linda Cristello, 44, who was among the indicted, was arrested in Lee County on Oct. 11; it isnt clear what her relationship with Michael Cristello is. It is also not clear whether any of the other indicted suspects have been caught. Ro said a pound of pot sells for about $1,200 in the Fort Myers area. So the haul may have netted Cristello, Capps and their crew about $2.4 million. The drugs were smuggled through Mexico into Arizona and to Florida, Ro said. Capps and Cristello were expected to have their first appearance in U.S. District Court in Fort Myers Tuesday, according to Ro. If convicted, they each face up to 20 years in prison.CRIME FRONTDAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

Wednesday,November 7,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com HELP A MARINE!80 yr. old, 1951 Era U.S. Marine, Respectable, Recently Homeless, Non-drinker, with two Certied Service Dogs says celebrate Nov. 10th, the 237th year birthday of your Corps by helping me nd a clean, well-maintained, sta. wgn., van, or sedan. Free or Cheap (I do have some money!) Age of auto not important. Charitable Contribution Credits! (305) 304-4887. Ive been preparing for every meeting since June just like I would if I was on council. Im up to speed and Ill definitely be getting more insight whats going on behind the scenes. With my experience before, itll allow me to hit the ground running and be an effective council member, Bull said.With the city nearing completion of its roughly $85 million central sewer system, most of the candidates were hoping to plan for the citys future over the next couple years on the council. Sneads main issues were building a possible City Hall at the events field between 98th and 99th streets, as well as continued beautification efforts. The current City Hall is housed in multiple trailers on the 10-acre events field lot.Bull is also a proponent of a new City Hall and says hes ready to get to work on a plan for Marathons future.Its an important time for Marathon because we just finished wastewater, stormwater and repaving, and we dont have a plan for what we want to be for 10 to 20 years. Thats one of the things Ill be getting to work on soon, he said. Ramsay has said his main goal is to see the U.S. Customs and Border Protection official port of entry built at Florida Keys Marathon Airport through. The county, which owns the airport, agreed to support the $1.1 million project in September. Ramsay, Snead and Bull will be sworn in at the Nov. 13 council meeting. Bull will replace Mayor Pete Worthington, whos termed out after three straight stints on the council.Familiar facesFrom Marathon,1A long race. For that Im grateful, that its over. I dont think people realize whats involved in running a campaign. It has been an amazing experience. I thought people were ready for a change. I obviously I was mistaken. Im not sure this is the last for me. I went up against a 20year incumbent and that was huge. Davidson and Welsh are both U.S. Navy veterans. Davidson owns a Marathon dive shop and hotel and Welsh is the retired principal of Key West High School. Davidson was run on a campaign of school-based management, empowering local communities to work with their schools to improve public relations and performance. Welsh has stressed the need to restore public trust in the district, which has been rocked by a sour relationship with unionized teachers, as well as a financial scandal. The four-year job pays around $29,000 per year plus benefits and the term begins on Nov. 20.Race tightFrom School Board,1A His healthy campaign budget $148,023 in cash contributions and $19,131 of in-kind services allowed him to outspend Peteck more than 5:1. People dont give you money unless they think youre the best, Ramsay said. I never asked one person in the Sheriffs Office for a dollar, but they come and give it. Ramsay pointed to backing from many in the agencys leadership, and from unions representing more than half the sworn officers.Second in command of the Sheriffs Office for eight years, Ramsay has served in leadership roles in all departments of the agency. He also served as a longtime volunteer and officer of the Marathon Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.My commitment to the Keys is strong, said the 36year resident of Marathon. Peteck, a Big Pine Key resident of 40 years, retired in June after a 24-year career as a deputy to mount a door-knocking campaign from Key West to Key Largo that earned him the Democratic nomination. Peteck, 53, then received the support of three defeated primary candidates for sheriff, Republicans Jake Brady and Bill Grove, and Democrat Matt Koval. Something is broken and we need to do something about it, Peteck said of the countys primary law-enforcement agency during his run. Its time for a fresh approach. Peteck and the other challengers pointed to high turnover of deputies, which they contend was driven in part by poor morale and lack of support from agency leaders. Ramsay said his goals for his first term include managing the agencys $41 million budget (which includes local jails) and maintaining deputy training at a state of the art level. Election differences within the agency now need to be put aside, Ramsay said. Its over; lets get back to normalcy, he said. The sheriff takes office Jan. 8.Ransay rollsFrom Sheriff,1A lenges in the next two years, particularly with the number of large construction projects on tap. Islamorada just broke ground on a $91 million wastewater project a pipeline that will take the villages sewage to Key Largo for treatment. There is also a major affordable housing project expected and potentially two supermarkets coming to town. The whole village will be a construction site to some degree between the wastewater project and the potential affordable housing project at the WetNet site and the potential WynnDixie and Publix. How will we deal with those massive projects will be a challenge, Blackburn said.He also said he plans to push for a review of the village charter to see if changes are warranted. Blackburn also said village staffing needs revisiting.Weve been in existence now for 15 years, and weve had enough experience to see what works and what doesnt, he said. We need to sit down and decide what is strategically the best way to move forward. The winners are sworn in Thursday.Council stableFrom Islamorada,1A Raschein looks like House victorRepublican Holly Raschein Merrill apparently will take over the state House District 120 seat from her boss Ron Saunders, a Democrat term-limited out.Tuesday election results from Monroe County showed Raschein besting Democrat Ian Whitney in the Keys, 20,738, or 57 percent, to Whitneys 15,230, or 43 percent.However, results from MiamiDade County were late coming in. The district has 133,000 voters.As results were still coming in, Raschein attributed her apparent victory to hard work, being on the ground, knowing whats important to our community.The past 10 years, Raschein has worked as legislative aide in District 120, first to Ken Sorensen, a Republican from Tavernier, and then to Saunders. Whitney, a member of the state Democratic Committee, is president of the Key West Innkeepers Association. As results continued coming in Tuesday night, he was looking north to Miami-Dade for a better result than he was getting in Monroe.Dades probably got 43, 45 percent of the vote, he said.The District 120 race was called by many one to watch, and the money raised and spent during the campaign proves that. Raschein raised $262,161, with $96,164 in in-kind donations, and spent $214,910. Whitney raised $75,535, with $62,870 in inkind services.STATE LEGISLATUREKeynoter StaffGriffin to succeed retiring SawyerDemocrat Joyce Griffin, long-time deputy Monroe County supervisor of elections, easily was voted in to succeed her boss Harry Sawyer, whos retiring after 24 years. When the votes were counted Tuesday, Griffin got 19,561 votes, or 55.08 percent, to Republican Barry Gibsons 15,955 votes, or 44.92 percent; thats excluding votes from two precincts, one in Key West and one in Marathon, which likely wouldnt affect the results.Griffin couldnt be reached for comment, as she was working to reprocess results from the two outstanding precincts and oversee the transport of 250 absentee ballots from Key Largo. Sawyer is retiring from the post he has held since 1998.Gibson, formerly the owner of two Old Town sunglasses shops and a former Key West city commission, said he had a lot of fun. It gets you up and down the Keys ... You meet a lot of people and its really a good experience. Gibson said he will keep it open when asked if hed seek political office again. I dont have a plan B; Im unemployed.The supervisor job starts on Jan. 8 and pays about $90,000 per year, plus benefits.In parting comments, Sawyer said, How proud I have been over the past 24 years to represent this county. I want to thank everybody for their support over the years.ELECTION SUPERVISORVogel is new top Keys prosecutorCatherine Vogel returns to the Monroe County State Attorneys Office on Jan. 88 this time as boss.When the votes were counted Tuesday, Vogel, a Democrat, defeated Republican Mark Kohl, her former boss, by 20,412 votes, 56.3 percent, to 15,851, or 43.7 percent. The community has been fabulous, Vogel said Tuesday. Whether it was win, lose or draw, its been a wonderful experience. Im very happy with the support Ive received.The voters of Monroe County have voiced a lot of faith in me, and I appreciate it, she said as election results were announced.Vogel, 58, advanced to the Nov. 7 election after ending State Attorney Dennis Wards term in office with a 53-percent victory in the Democratic primary in August, after a caustic campaign.The general election campaign took a more genteel tone, with former colleagues Kohl and Vogel agreeing on many issues and limiting the barbs.Vogel worked as chief assistant prosecutor under Kohl, who served as state attorney from 2000 to 2008. Ward defeated Kohl in 2008, and Vogel left the State Attorneys Office.She returned to Monroe County to take on Ward, and resume a career as a prosecutor.How can I say anything bad about Catherine Vogel? Im the one who brought her down, hired her and kept her as chief assistant for eight years, Kohl, 56, said during the campaign. Vogel frequently pointed to her 27 years as a courtroom prosecutor, with a record that includes highprofile murder convictions. I have tried more than 100 felony cases in court, Vogel said. That makes me the most experienced prosecutor in Monroe County.STATE ATTORNEYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com VOGELCranney-Gage wins, other race tightRepublican Jill CranneyGage won a landslide victory to the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board Tuesday, while 16-year incumbent Steve Smith was in a dead heat not decided late Tuesday.It appeared Smith, a Democrat, defeated Republican Steven Hammond in the District 3 race, but 250 absentee ballots had yet to be counted, and Precinct 23, a Moose Lodge in Marathon, was not reporting as of 9:30 p.m.Smith had garnered 17,523 votes, or 50.77 percent, while Hammond tallied 16,994, or 49.23 percent. It would be Smiths fifth consecutive term on the board if elected.CranneyGage defeated Green Party candidate Oliver Kofoid for the District 1 seat, 23,446 votes to 10,299. Thats 68.48 percent to 30.52 percent.Gone from the Mosquito Control Board is 20-year Commissioner Joan LordPapy, who declined to seek reelection in District 1 after five consecutive terms on the board. I did not expect it to be this tight, Smith said Tuesday during an election TVshow hosted by US1 Radio and Monroe County Channel 76. Its interesting because you have one candidate who was campaigning on the fact that he has an MBAand worked for a Fortune 500 company, and another campaigning ... with 16 years experience who was endorsed by every newspaper. I think there was a lot of party-line voting, he said.Cranney-Gage, a senior accountant with the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, was unavailable for comment.As has been the case in recent years, the districts annual budget has been the main issue during the 2012 campaign.Many criticized the district for padding reserves in years past and then rapidly spending them down they were set to run out next year over the past two to three years.Cranney-Gage also noted during the campaign that the number of high-paid employees concerned her, and that the district needs to reexamine the amount of the budget used to fund salaries. Newly elected Mosquito Control Board commissioners are sworn in at the districts January organization meeting. Adate for that meeting has not been set.MOSQUITO CONTROL CRANNEY-GAGEBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comGibbs, Majeska win sewer boardFormer newspaper reporter Steve Gibbs won a seat on the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board and pet store owner Robert Majeska retained his seat Tuesday.They defeated challengers Mike Black and Commissioner Charles Brooks.Gibbs, 68, had about 40 percent of the at-large vote; Majeska, 59, won 31 percent; Brooks, 80, had about 18 percent; and Black, 52, had 11 percent. Wastewater commissioners serve four-year terms.Ive worked extra hard for this and for these people, Gibbs said. I believe now the really hard work begins. To everyone who believed in me, I will do everything I can to make sure every vote counts.The candidates differed in their opinions on how to treat wastewater from the village of Islamorada, which the sewer district will do at its Key Largo plant. Gibbs and Majeska favor the deal because the $11 million the village will pay Key Largo will go toward paying down the special taxing districts debt, which is about $80 million. Majeska said approving the agreement is his proudest achievement during his first term as a commissioner. Black, a hydraulic technician, and incumbent Brooks remain opposed to the agreement. Brooks has been against it since it was proposed about three years ago. Black said piping Islamoradas sewage puts the Keysreef in great peril. Fire boardIncumbent Tom Tharp lost his seat on the Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District board to challenger George Mirabella. Mirabella, 52, won almost 54 percent of the vote to Tharps 46 percent.Funeral-home owner and former U.S. Marine Anthony Allen also won a seat on the board. He defeated retired airline captain Kent Van Winkle, 70, by almost 60 percent of the vote. Commissioners serve four-year terms. The candidates running for commissioners overseeing the Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Department and Ambulance Corps disagree on the role the taxing district. Tharp, 70, sees the boards roll as having more of a say in specifically how the two departments spend their money and operate. Mirabella says the commissioners already micromanage Key Largos first responders too much. During the campaign, Mirabella criticized the commission for hiring a liaison between the board and the departments, but who answered to the board.The person hired for that job, retired firefighter Bruce Stoll, quit in September 2011, five months after he was hired. The creation of the position was never popular among firefighters, and Dire Chief Sergio Garcia particularly objected. Tharp was instrumental in creating the job.Allen, 32, owns AllenBeyer Funeral Home.KEY LARGOBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comNo contest: Heavilin steamrolls AllenAs expected, Republican Amy Heavilin easily defeated Democrat Joe Allen on Tuesday night to become the next Monroe County clerk of the court. Heavilin got 22,649 votes, or 64.36 percent, to Allens 12,540 votes, 35.64 percent. Thats excluding two precincts, one each from Marathon and Key West, that were having problems reporting their results.Heavilin is director of finance for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and says those skills will help her in the new job, which shell assume on Jan. 8.I dont think it has sunk in yet, Heavilin said Tuesday night. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves. Ive got some big shoes to fill and Ill work hard for this community every day. Allen, a retired teacher, was nearly invisible throughout the campaign process. Since County Clerk Danny Kolhage retired but was then elected without opposition to a four-year term on the Monroe County Commission, replacing District 1 Commissioner Kim Wigington, hell have to step down to take that post by Nov. 20. That means Heavilin, assuming she is appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to fill out Kolhages clerk term, will start ahead of the official Jan. 8 term commencement. The four-year clerk job pays $105,828 annually.COUNTY CLERKBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com RASCHEINKeynoter Staff HEAVILIN

Wednesday,November 7,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Keys linemen getting theirfootingAfter a two-day trip up the East Coast, a group of seven Keys Energy Services workers arrived on Long Island, N.Y., Sunday to help restore power to hundreds of thousands of residents affected by damage from Hurricane Sandy. The Keys Energy crew was assigned to work in Hicksville, a town of 41,500 people in Nassau County. Overall on Long Island, the Long Island Power Authority reported 270,000 customers were without power in the aftermath of the massive storm. Keys Energy spokesman Julio Barroso said the crew was assigned to work on a residential easement Monday, repairing broken utility pole cross-arms and downed power lines. He said the crew worked from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday. "The crew is being dispatched to another residential section of Hicksville ... [Tuesday] to continue restoration work. The Long Island Power Authority has set a goal of restoring power for 90 percent of all of its customers by [today]. Keys Energy crew members are in good spirits and happy to be putting their expertise to use to help restore affected customers," Barroso said. The Keys Energy crew isn't exactly living in the lap of luxury on Long Island. The Power Authority "secured the use of a U.S. Navy barracks near Hicksville for sleeping accommodations," and the crew spent the evening on small cots packed close together. Temperatures in the area are below 40 degrees, but the crew is getting along fine. "It's cold," said lineman Michael Euliss. "We are coping with it pretty good considering we're from South Florida." The seven-man crew comprises Euliss Stefan Washington, Manny Estevez, Bryan Veliz, Pedro Arencibia, Michael Commander and Jerry Pita. They could be on Long Island for as long as two weeks, depending on how restoration efforts go. Linesmen from throughout the country, as well as Canada, have descended on the Northeast as part of the restoration. Additionally, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers are providing law enforcement in parts of New Jersey.7 stationed in New York in Nassau CountyHURRICANE SANDY Photo courtesy KEYS ENERGY SERVICESKeys Energy Services lineman Michael Euliss on Monday reattaches a line damaged by a tree during Hurricane Sandy on Long Island,N.Y.Euliss is one of seven Keys Energy linemen who drove from Key West to lend a hand restoring power.By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Court OKs delay in Ferro murder trialThe second murder trial of Nicholas Ferro, scheduled to start this past Monday, was delayed last week when judges with the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami granted prosecutors a postponement. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia has issued a gag order for all involved in the case, so its not immediately clear why the stay was requested. But court records indicate the emergency motion to stay was filed Nov. 1 and granted by judges Kevin Emas and Judge Vance Salter. Ferro, 26, of Hollywood in Broward County, is accused of stabbing to death Key Wester Marquese Butler on Nov. 1, 2009, during a large brawl near Caroline and Simonton streets in Old Town. Ferro, 26, stood trial for second-degree murder in Key West in March but jurors were unable to reach a verdict after three days of deliberations; Chief Monroe Count Circuit Court Judge David Audlin declared a mistrial. Then in April, he recused himself from further proceedings, handing off the case to Garcia. In July, Garcia released Ferro on a $750,000 bond. Ferro is required to wear an ankle monitor tracking his whereabouts. Ferro, represented by Miami-based attorney Ed ODonnell IV, contends that he stabbed Butler in self-defense. Assistant Miami-Dade County State Attorneys Breezye Telfair and Miesha Darrough are prosecuting because staff at the Monroe County State Attorneys Office has ties to the Butler family.The reason unclear due to gag orderIN THE COURTSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comAnother dengue case confirmedThe Osceola County Health Department in Central Florida has confirmed a woman there is recovering from dengue fever and is investigating to determine, among other things, if the mosquitoborn illness was acquired there. The 41-year-old woman was determined to have dengue on Nov. 3 and officials are investigating a second suspected case in a 73-year-old Osceola County man. The two incidents come little more than a week after a Seminole County man was confirmed to have the disease, also known as break bone fever. It was largely eradicated in Florida by the 1960s. But in 2009 and 2010, there were a combined 93 confirmed cases of dengue fever, all originating in Key West. In a few cases, tourists contracted it but didnt notice until returning home. Thats why when dengue is discovered, part of the screening process includes questioning the patient on recent out-ofarea travel. There have also been cases reported in MiamiDade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Dengue symptoms include high fever, aching bones, headaches, pain behind the eyes and a raise. More than 100 million people worldwide have contracted the disease. Those who got it in Key West fully recovered. The disease carriers, Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, are present throughout the state and dengue is endemic in many subtropical areas like Puerto Rico, Colombia and parts of the Bahamas. The best way to avoid dengue is to reduce the mosquito population. For residents that means getting rid of standing water in garden hoses, flower pots, drip pans beneath grills, garbage cans, pet dishes, boat covers, wading pools, bird baths and the like.Thats two in Central Florida this monthKeynoter StaffHEALTH www.keysnet.com

EDITORIALVoter turnout still a letdownLETTERS TO THE EDITORLong Island says thanksLiving here on Long Island where we certainly are not as used to or experienced with hurricanes as you are in Florida, I have to thank all the help coming our way from the Keys. I literally have tears in my eyes as I am reading the story of the Keys Energy Services linesmen coming here to do their part to help. My personal story is nowhere near as tragic as many others I am hearing and seeing, so I do not even think it warrants telling. Even down the block from me, it seems like a whole different world. How the storm devastates one area of the block and not the other is beyond me. Neighbors banding together is so dear to my heart. I just needed to write this, and I never write letters to the editor. Again, all our thanks and forever gratefulness. I am sure I speak for all of the people here in the Northeast. Debi Davis Brentwood, N.Y.Even with changes in balloting, theres no reason electorate shouldnt be showing up at pollsLets play a little numbers game: 6,000. 300. 4.5 million. The first figure represents the number of polling places open in Florida for Tuesdays election. The second figure represents the number of early voting sites set up around the state. And 4.5 million represents the number of Florida voters who found early voting and absentee voting to be a preferred way to cast their ballots. That means starting out at 7 a.m. Tuesday, more than half of our states eligible voters had already voted. Thats good news. It could be even better if early voting hadnt been reduced by act of the Florida Legislature from 12days in previous elections to eight days in this years critical presidential race. Florida Secretary of State Ken Dentzner, whose last job was working as a lobbyist for the Florida Beer Wholesalers Association, says expanded hours early voting sites were open 12 hours each day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. expanded opportunities for people to vote. Unfortunately for him, the results show early voting numbers in Monroe County were down more than 30 percent. Elections Supervisor Harry Sawyer says its because the number of days were reduced by 33 percent (from 12 to eight). Thats disenfranchising Florida voters. And efforts by the Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott to further restrict voting rights ought to be widely condemned. Case in point: Long lines in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties on Saturday the last day of early voting prompted calls to the governor to extend the window, adding back Sunday for early voting. Scott refused. His two most recent predecessors, Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush, both issued executive orders keeping Florida polling stations open when similar delays and logjams occurred. One message that shouldnt be ignored in this election or any other is the dismal standing of the American electorate when it comes to participating in the voting process. The United States ranks 64th in the world with a turnout rate that averages 49.3 percent. Early voting has helped improve that number in the past few years. But its not enough. And reducing these early voting opportunities is heading us in the wrong direction. American voter participation already pales in comparison with other countries, including Uruguay, South Korea and even Angola where turnout is in the mid-90s. As we think about the outcome of the many hotly contested races this morning, its natural to speculate how a more engaged American electorate would impact the outcomes in local, state and national races. Surely, we can and should do better. The Keys Energy Services crew that headed to New York on Friday to help the Long Island Power Authority restore electricity comprises (from left) Stefan Washington,Manny Estevez,Michael Euliss,Bryan Veliz,Pedro Arencibia, Michael Commander and Jerry Pita. Bad pole placementAnew traffic signal has been installed at U.S. 1 and Duck Key Drive, at the entrance to Hawks Cay Resort at mile marker 61. This will be interesting, especially at night, because the highway has a 55 mph speed limit for several miles approaching the light from either direction. Aconcrete pole was installed directly in front of the Hawks Cay entrance sign. The problem is, it isnt plumb that pole leans at least at a 5-degree angle, maybe more. Every pole Ive ever seen installed is straight up and down but not this one. Is that beyond the capabilities of the contractor? And why is the pole installed right at the edge of the turning-lane pavement? Just recently, the state Department of Transportation forced Weiler Engineering to rip out and rebuild all the sewer pump stations along U.S. 1 on Grassy Key because they were considered to be traffic hazards even though they were 10 to 20 feet away from the pavement. This concrete pole is at the pavements edge. Im taking bets how long it will be before the first vehicle runs into it. Who supervises these projects, anyway?

Ceremonies for each student are being held at schools on Sugarloaf Key and in Marathon, Key West, Coral Shores High and Key Largo. Thanks to our donors, we are accomplishing our mission: Breaking the cycle of poverty through education, one child at a time. For 13 years, Take Stock in Children has been available to eligible Monroe County students. In that time, approximately 600 students have been given the opportunity for a college education; about 401 already matriculated or graduated from college or a university, and another 186 are in our middle and high schools. Our unique mentoring and scholarship program starts at seventh grade and continues through graduation from college. All qualifying Monroe County middle and high school students from low-income families having the desire, motivation and ability to go to college are admitted to the program. The cost of the Florida Prepaid College Plan contracts that we purchase has doubled in the past three years. Every $16,541.42 that we raise from our loyal donors this year enables one more Monroe County student to attend college, with tuition and fees fully paid. Donor contributions are used exclusively for the purchase of scholarship contracts for Take Stock in Children. It is double-matched, first by our leadership donors in Monroe County and then by the Florida Prepaid College Foundation. Anew aspect of the Take Stock program is to sponsor a named scholar with a $25,000 annual contribution. Our 2012 named-scholar donors are the Community Blood Centers of South Florida, Edward B. Knight Foundation, Florida Keys Electric Cooperative, Keys Childrens Foundation, Ocean Reef Foundation, John R. Padget, James Parrish Estate, Jean and Clark Shannon, John N. Taylor Jr., Monroe County Sheriffs Office and Upper Keys Rotary. Were asking donors to contribute. The campaign begins now and continues through annual donors forum events on Jan. 22 at Key West, Jan. 23 in the Middle Keys and Jan. 24 in the Upper Keys. Our 60 new Take Stock students thank our donors for changing their lives. John R. Padget Key WestWrong locationIn response to John Buschmans letter about possible land annexation by the city of Key West: The northern portion of Stock Island is already part of the city. The annexation proposal regards the southern portion, the former dog-track side. Too funny. Elliot Baron Chapel Hill, N.C.Resort stay fantasticRecently we were given the privilege to stay in the penthouse at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. We cant tell you what a joy it was for us to go there and relax after the fire at our stores. We were treated like royalty. Staying there was so great and its so beautiful. Who needs to go out of the Keys to have fun, relax and have a great time? Not us. We enjoyed the great meals, the dolphins, the pools, the beauty, and everyone there treated us so kind. It was Bobs birthday that weekend and we just want to say thank you to the Hawks Cay staff for a great break from all our worries for a while. Bob, Linda Lee Byars Marathon Big policy move this week to private sectorAs millions of Floridians headed to the polls on Tuesday, about 175,000 homeowners faced another stark choice: Stay with Citizens Property Insurance Corp. or allow a smaller private company to take over their policy. Homeowners across the state received takeout offers from private insurers last month, giving them 30 days to either opt out or be automatically shifted out of state-run insurance. On Tuesday, those who agreed to leave Citizens or simply dont respond joined one of the largest mass exoduses from the states largest insurer. Meanwhile, 53,000 more letters are hitting mailboxes this week offering another round of takeouts for December. It gives me great pleasure to announce that the latest takeout figures have the potential to make 2012 the largest take-out year for Citizens since 2008, insurance commissioner Kevin McCarty said as he announced the program in September. Homeowners who faced Tuesdays deadline have had a month to weigh the pros and cons of leaving Citizens. On the pro side, policyholders will be able to leave an unpopular company that is trying to make itself less popular and shed away its customers. Citizens has embarked on a series of controversial initiatives home reinspections, coverage cutbacks and tougher eligibility requirements while continuing to raise its rates. The company also warns of potential hurricane taxes after a storm, something private insurers dont require. But the grass may not be greener for some who agreed to leave Citizens. The five companies participating in the takeout are all much smaller than Citizens and undercapitalized insurers have failed in the past after taking over policies. Also, there is no guarantee that premiums wont jump after the policy renews. Chances are that the premiums are going to go up, said John Page, an agent with Rick Gibbs PA Insurance Agency. But Page added that rates are also going up at Citizens, which recently approved a 10.8 percent rate hike for next year. Those who ignored the letters that came in the mail were automatically shifted out of Citizens on Tuesday and added into one of five companies: Florida Peninsula, American Integrity, Homeowners Choice, Southern Oak, and Southern Fidelity Property & Casualty. While Tuesday was the official deadline to opt out, homeowners will still be able to decline the offer for another 30 days after they are taken over by the new company. The large takeout is part of an aggressive plan championed by Gov. Rick Scott to reduce risk and the possibility of financial liability for taxpayers if the state-run insurer runs out of money during a catastrophic storm. More takeouts are on the way. On Dec. 4, another 53,000 policies will be shifted out of Citizens, which currently insures about 1.4 million properties. Proposal letters were recently mailed to homeowners from private insurers, setting off another 30day opt-out period. Some homeowners who opted out of the first round could be targeted in the current takeout program, a Citizens spokesperson said. Citizens and Scott are so eager to get risk out of the state-run insurer that they are considering rewarding private insurers that take over policies with $350 million in low-interest, forgivable loans. If that moves forward, Citizens may shrink from 1.4 million policies to less than 900,000 policies next year.Thousands shifted out of CitizensTOLUSE OLORUNNIPAMiami HeraldINSURANCE www.keysnet.com www.keysnet.com

Wednesday,November 7,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com Study:Worker burnout risingWhile the economy is flashing signs of a rebound, its a markedly different story for a growing number of workers, according to a survey released Monday. More workers than ever report feeling burned out by their jobs, according to a ComPsych Corp. survey of nearly 2,000 employees conducted during September that sought to measure stress levels and their effects in the workplace. Were seeing a growing trend of employee burnout, said Richard Chaifetz, chief executive of Chicago-based ComPsych, a global provider of employee assistance programs. Its a product of the sputtering economy companies continue to be slow to hire, and prolonged employee stress inevitably turns into decreased performance, unfortunately. During the recession, companies shed millions of jobs as they strove to cut costs and shore up the bottom line. But that work didnt go away with the elimination of the position, it just got shifted, pushing workers to do more with less, workplace experts said. According to the report: Nearly one out of four employees say their top work priority is just being present at work. About two in three workers report high levels of stress with extreme fatigue and a feeling of being out of control. More than half of those surveyed said they miss one to two days of work per year because of stress. Sherrie Bourg Carter, a clinical psychologist in Fort Lauderdale who focuses on employee burnout, said she hears complaints from burnedout clients firsthand. Those who say showing up for a job is their highest priority are at high risk, she said. Each employee has increasingly demanding workloads, Bourg Carter said. The work still has to be done, but employers want to do it with fewer employees. One person is often doing the work of two people and probably without any support staff. Herbert Freudenberger was the first to alert the world to the dangers of burnout in 1974 when he coined the term in his book, Burnout: The High Cost of High Achievement. He described burnout as a complete lack of motivation or reaction to incentives. Since then, the term has become a catchphrase for maniacally stressful days. But burnout is a chronic problem, said Bourg Carter, author of High Octane Women: How Superachie-vers Can Avoid Burnout. It starts with mild stresses that most people experience, but if nothing is done to manage the stress, it can become unbearable. The actual state of burnout is not just a bad day or a bad week, Bourg Carter said. Its when a person is so consumed with symptoms that they cant function. Burnout usually sneaks up on people, she said. All of a sudden youre exhausted, youre feeling cynical and unattached, Bourg Carter said, and you think, What happened to me? In addition to extra work, a lack of job satisfaction can exacerbate feelings of burnout, said Jennifer Schramm of the Society for Human Resource Management. Because middle-age workers have delayed retirement, Schramm said, younger employees feel like they cant advance. Less than 50 percent of workers said they were satisfied with their career development in the societys most recent job satisfaction survey. It could have a domino effect down the ladder, where everyone feels a little bit stuck, said Schramm, the societys manager of workplace trends and forecasting. Alot of the millennials really are having a hard time. Those most likely to burn out are those who work excessively without breaks or outlets for stress, said Thomas Donohoe, who researches work-life balance at East Tennessee State University. But theres hope, even for voluntary and involuntary workaholics. Donohoe said talking about stressors with trusted friends or family is a good place to start. Other options include taking five minutes to eat or do simple exercises at the office, going for a brief walk or taking a catnap on the subway with a phone alarm set. Most people expect their brain to constantly be on, Bourg Carter noted, but if your brain is constantly on, it will eventually shut itself off.Expert: That leads to less effectivenessBy ELLEN HURSTChicago TribuneTHE WORKPLACE BusinessPROMOTING THE KEYS Photo by PAUL DEMUTHPromoting Florida Keys tourism on Monday in London are (from left) Lauren Sycamore,United Kingdom sales representative for the Monroe County Tourist Development Council;Yves Vrielynck,the TDCs destination sales manager;Colin Chapman of Thomas Cook Tours;Stacey Mitchell,the TDCs sales director;and Miguel de Lijster of Travelution Magazine.They were at the World Travel Market exp,where more than 5,000 exhibitors and 50,000 participants promoted their destinations. Burned out?About one in four employees show signs of burnout.Here are some signs, according to Fort Lauderdale psychologist Sherrie Bourg Carter: Physical signs:Chest pain,chronic fatigue,sleep problems,lots of headaches, indigestion. Behavioral signs:Eating more or eating less,increasing drug or alcohol use, feeling more sensitive or emotional,isolating oneself from friends or colleagues. Psychological signs:Feeling depressed or anxious,feeling helpless or hopeless.BEST AT FISHERMENS Fishermens Community Hospital in Marathon has honored three staffers as its exemplary employees of the third quarter of the year.Along with hospital CEO Hal Leftwich (left),they are Norma Smith,a member of the Health Information Management Department for five years;Jerilyn Town from the Emergency Department,manager of the quarter;and nurse Greg Cauble,11-year veteran of the hospital and formerly director of nursing at Palatka Family Medical in North Florida.

She is trained in the Mackenzie method of such therapy. To find out more, call 367-6756.Where are the hot jobs? In nursingTheres a lot of talk about how students and job hunters should train for the hot jobs. So, what are they? Too bad theres no easy answer. Hot can change quickly, even while pursuing a hot degree. Hot also can be in a beholders eye. Utility companies, for example, need more workers to climb utility poles. If youre not able to do that, it doesnt matter if the field is wide open. Heres a hot field, though, that has possibilities for just about anyone: Health care. Were not talking medical school to become a physician, although more doctors are needed. Were talking an array of hands-on jobs, ranging from entering patient information into computers to drawing blood to checking in patients in doctorsoffices to mopping floors at the end of the day. Two of the hottest jobs in health are in nursing. One involves direct patient care of older people. More nurses at all levels of training are needed in geriatrics, partly because the baby-boom generation is creating more old people and partly because theyre living longer but arent necessarily healthier. The other booming area of nursing is in health informatics. Thats where health-care knowledge marries information technology to develop and use health information systems. The particularly good news for health informatics is that training opportunities are plentiful at community colleges and for-profit schools. Its also a good career step for nurses who are burned out on direct patient care but can still apply their health care knowledge.

Augsten M.D.,F.A.C.C. (305) 453-6316 No horsing around with thisThe Key West City Commission tonight will consider a donation-funded plan to construct a composting shed to use the manure generated by the Police Departments four patrol horses. The horses, stabled at the Police Athletic League on the Truman Waterfront, produce about 200 pounds of manure every day. Its placed in a dumpster and periodically hauled to a waste-to-energy plant in Broward County. The hauling fee costs about $4,500 each year. With a composting shed, that cost would go away. The citys sustainability coordinator, Alison Higgins, says the manure will break down into high-nutrient, high-quality compost that could be used by, among others, the citys urban forester, the Key West Garden Club, the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Garden, Green Living and Energy Education community gardens and backyard gardeners. The manure is mixed with sawdust and hay. With the composting shed, it would get about a month to essentially cook via an air-catalyzed biochemical reaction creating a final product. Higgins says for home use, the compost fertilizer should be mixed 50/50 with soil. The construction materials for the shed would be donated by Home Depot on North Roosevelt Boulevard and members of the Sunrise Rotary club. Construction plans indicate an approximate cost of $3,140. Higgins described the project as a win-win solution. Quality soil is a major deficiency for landscaping and gardening in the Keys. It is neither efficient nor cost effective to buy soil in bags from the mainland while we pay to ship off our soil amendments to an incinerator. The vote tonight would extend a license for Sunrise Rotary volunteers to work on city-owned property.The commission meets beginning at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street. Meetings are usually held on Tuesdays but this session was pushed back to accommodate the election.Equine cops manure to be compostedKEY WEST Photo courtesy KEY WEST POLICEThe mounted unit is visible at numerous community events.It also does basic patrols in the citys busy tourist corridor.Yaniz: Make Duval pedestrians onlyThe Key West City Commission will take up again tonight the longflickering concept of closing Duval Street to vehicles and making the tourist corridor pedestrian-only. The latest pitch to close the entire stretch of Duval is brought by Commissioner Tony Yaniz. If approved, commissioners would essentially direct city staff to analyze the conversion. City Manager Bob Vitas would have 180 days to research the concept, then present the commission with a preliminary report. Last year, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley led the charge to close off two blocks of Duval on Saturdays to allow restaurants in the 500 and 600 blocks to set up temporary sidewalk cafes. After being postponed a number of times amid extensive and divided debate, the idea was shelved. Yaniz says closing Duval to vehicles would enhance the tourist experience and help boost business activity. He likened it to Lincoln Road in Miami Beach or Beale Street in Memphis, Tenn. In its current configuration, complete with tour vehicles, delivery trucks, pedicabs, mopeds, bikes and walkers, Duval attained the American Planning Associations designation as one of the nations 10 Great Streets for 2012. The thoroughfare was cited for its wood-framed Victorian structures, mixed use and the unique geography of the one-mile stretch, which connects the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. Also up for approval tonight is acceptance of a $1,165,040 bid to rebuild the Tarpon Pier at the city-owned Garrison Bight Marina, situated between North Roosevelt Bou-levard and Palm Avenue. The pier has 44 slips with 33 liveaboard vessels in mooring. It was constructed in 1972 and 1973, with an extension added in 1990. The selected bid comes from Ebsary Foundation Co. of Miami and includes replacement of the pier along with electric, water, sewer, phone, cable and fire-suppression infrastructure. Once construction starts (a date hasnt been negotiated at this point), the vessels at the Tarpon Pier will have to temporarily move to the nearby Wahoo or Marlin piers. The commission meets at Old City Hall on Greene Street beginning at 6 p.m.The concept to ban autos is not newKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KidCare changes floatedWith a new crop of lawmakers soon to arrive in Tallahassee, childrens advocates have released a plan to expand health-care coverage to the hundreds of thousands of Florida kids who dont have it. The KidCare Toolbox includes a history of the program and an explanation of gaps in coverage that advocates have long sought to plug along with policy tools for fixing them. None of this effort is really new, said Karen Woodall of the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy. This is just putting it together all in one place and including families who are impacted, along with advocates and policymakers. Last year, just three states had a higher percentage of uninsured children than Florida. In 2011, about 579,000 children statewide were uninsured, including 358,000 low-income children who were qualified for coverage. So childrens advocates are offering policy proposals that they say would help solve problems that make it harder for families to enroll or stay enrolled. KidCare has four main components Medicaid for children, Florida Healthy Kids, MediKids and Childrens Medical Services administered by multiple state agencies. That makes it easy for children to fall through the cracks if their ages or family incomes change. On Tuesday, the advocates outlined proposed policy changes such as making eligibility continuous for 12 months, which would allow children to stay enrolled that long. Also, the changes would make eligibility presumptive, granting coverage to children who qualify but dont have their paperwork in hand yet. Were using the theme of tools that, if used, would chip away at the number of uninsured kids in the state, said Woodall, a longtime member of KidCares advisory council. Its a renewed commitment to pulling in that quality health care and filling in the gaps.By MARGIE MENZELNews Service of FloridaHEALTH CARE TUMOR REMOVAL Home-schooled students in Marathon on Friday peer through the window into the surgery suite as Dr.Gerry Diethelm from the Marathon Veterinary Hospital removes fibropapilloma tumors from an endangered green sea turtle.Turtles with fibropapillomatosis have external tumors that might grow so large that they hang and hamper swimming,vision,feeding,and potential escapes from predators.Such tumors have been reported in all sea turtle species except leatherbacks.Yellowtail harvest remains openAnewly increased limit for commercial harvest of yellowtail snapper could keep the Florida Keys season open through the remaining weeks of 2012. Hopefully, these extra fish will be enough to keep everybody working, Roy Crabtree, regional administrator for the National Marine Fisheries Services Southeast Region, said Tuesday. The Fisheries Service filed an emergency rule Tuesday, taking effect today, that raises the commercial annual catch limit for yellowtail in federal South Atlantic waters by 453,921 pounds from 1.14 million pounds to 1.59 million pounds. It appeared the South Atlantic season for yellowtail snapper would close on Sept. 11, when reports indicated the 1.14-million-pound catch limit would be reached. That threatened at least 100 commercial boats based in the Keys that rely on yellowtail catches, according to the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. But a new yellowtail snapper stock assessment from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-mission indicates the stock is more productive than previously thought, Crabtree said. That enabled us to extend the range of the catch limit. Harvests counted toward the annual catch limit reset on Jan. 1. The emergency rule of 1.59 million pounds is temporary but will remain in place long enough for the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council to consider raising the commercial limit permanently, Crabtree said. Apermanent increase in the catch limit also could increase recreational bag limits for yellowtail, a popular food fish, in federal jurisdiction. There are still several things that need to be addressed in the fishery so well try to do that this year, Crabtree said. Possible changes could include a combined yellowtail catch limit for South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters, and scheduling a closed season for summer months rather than the more lucrative winter months. The Keys reportedly bring in about 90 percent of Floridas annual yellowtail catch, and the winter months are the most lucrative for fishermen because of visitor demand for snapper. The closure would not have affected the recreational catch of yellowtail snapper.Feds earlier said closure was likelyCOMMERCIAL FISHING By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com D

Behind the teams bench, which bordered the mangroves, the smell of jet fuel competed with salt pond stench. Across the way, a smattering of fans crowded the sideline. Shortly after the district game with Archbishop McCarthy began, the Conchs Caila DeAbreu streaked down the right sideline and fired a shot that was caught by the McCarthy keeper. Caila, just change the angle of attack, Paul shouted.Defense ruled in the early going. At the 20-minute water break, with the Conchs trailing, 1-0, Paul reminded his chattering players, Its a long game.With 15 minutes left in the first half, DeAbreu was taken down in the penalty box, and a yellow-shirted official awarded her a penalty kick. McCarthy coach Mike Sica disagreed. Welcome to Key West, he said.DeAbreus kick beat the keeper, the ball buried inside the left post, and the score was tied, 1-1. Shortly afterward, the ever-aggressive Lauren Schoneck passed to Maudia Azard, who scored from in front of the net to put the Conchs ahead, 2-1. Breathe, Key West, now breathe, Paul ordered. The Mavericks threatened late in the half, but a wall of three Conchs stymied a free kick. The ball rocketed off Lindsay Free. Way to take one for the team, a teammate shouted as the half ended. Paul led the applause as the spirited players came to the bench. Free lifted her shirt to reveal the red imprint of the ball on her stomach.The Conchs, their shadows elongated in the slanting sun, struck first early in the second half. Libby Isherwood bent a free shot from the left side that hit the crossbar. The ball ricocheted to DeAbreu, who kicked the ball right to the keeper. The ball rebounded back to her, and she scored to make it 3-1.Paul was now coaching with a hamburger in his hand. He watched as a Maverick penalty kick cut the lead to 3-2.

Coral Shores suffered its only shutout loss of the season in an 18-0 decision at LaSalle on Oct. 12. Were excited to have the opportunity to go play them again, said Cane head coach Ed Holly.

Marathon is in District 16-1A.We knew going in they were going to be tough teams. We knew it would be a good step up and the biggest goal was to stay healthy and play good competitive soccer, coach Cindy Durkin said. We hung in there and definitely were able to score some goals and give them a little run for their money. More specifically, senior Taylor Konrath was able to score some goals. The team relies heavily on Konrath for offense and she delivered with all four Dolphin goals over the weekend. The first came just two minutes into Fridays matchup with Venice, off a crossing ball from Savannah Rodamer. Durkin said the team had been working on that type of pass in practice. To see it happen as you planned out was nice, she said.

Sailfish are making an appearance on the reef in appreciable numbers, as indicated by the palpable quantity of flags flying back at the docks. Anglers are taking them as they shower bait and by live-baiting off the deeper reef edge. Ballyhoo, pilchards and goggle eyes are the baits of choice, although small blue runners will work in a pinch. Mixed with the sails are gaffer-size dolphin, plus the occasional king mackerel and some rather larger ceros.Mutton snapper are gorging on a large influx of sardines on the wrecks and artificial reefs. There are also plenty of amberjack, almaco jack and large yellowjacks, all of which are a nice bonus when dropping.

er flags are biting anywhere from 70 to 90 feet, while medium-size fish in the 14to 18-inch range can be found in the 35to 60-foot depths. Use cut baits, such as small pieces of ballyhoo or shrimp.Youll also find increasing numbers of keeper grouper, mostly blacks and reds. Large live baits, such as grunts, blue runners and pinfish, work well.Mangrove snapper are still biting on the patches, although theyre not as thick as they were a couple of weeks ago. In their place are keeper-size yellowtail, red and gag grouper. Again, use cut baits for the yellowtails, while the mangroves and grouper will respond to live pilchards and small live ballyhoo.There is a trickle of Spanish mackerel in the bay areas of the Middle Keys. This fishery will continue to improve with each passing cool front. Shrimp and live pilchards are the baits of choice. As the mackerel become more prevalent on the grass beds, cut baits will also work.The weeks bestCapt. Larry Bell and his mate Alex Bell of Blue Magic Charters in Marathon hosted a reef trip for a trio of anglers from Long Island, N.Y. They caught nearly a limit of yellowtail along with a bunch of mackerel.The SeaSquared crew made up for lost time due to Hurricane Sandy with a whole mess of trips last week. Don and Marcia Atwell, from Kannapolis, N.C., fished two days and caught snapper, grouper and cero mackerel along with going two for three on sailfish.The Stinger/Myers group, from Lancaster, Pa., fished the reef and caught so many snapper, grouper and cero mackerel that we packed and shipped it home for them. The Lilleberg/Eriksson family, visiting all the way from Sweden, also caught a bunch of snapper, which they dined on while staying in Marathon.Agroup of six pipe-fitter buddies from the Turkey Point nuclear plant in Homestead had a blast catching and releasing 22 lemon sharks up to about eight feet long. And a group of friends from Bayonne, N.J., escaped the flooding and darkness to begin four days of fishing with us by catching snapper, grouper and ceros. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, spent much of the week fishing offshore in 90 to 200 feet and catching sailfish, tuna and all variety of mackerel. Inshore, mangrove snapper, bluefish, grouper and more mackerel kept his anglers busy. He also spent some time on the flats, having fun with lots of barracuda and mangroves.Casting contestCapt.

Theyre so bitchy, Free said. Paul watched this scene and said, Keep your brains in the game.The Conch keeper, Angela Martin, was having a good game. She surveyed the action with hands on hips. Behind her, a bird perched on the crossbar. When the blackclad Mavericks went on the attack, bearing down on her, she crouched, ready to spring.When the Conch defenders thwarted an attack, the ball would sometimes be loose in front, prompting Martin to scream, Get it out! or, Away! Away! Away!Martin watched as, in the distance, Azard scored again, but the Mavericks soon answered with a shot that sailed over Martins head and into the net. It was 4-3 Conchs and time was running out. Come on, ladies, youre going to have to take the last 10 minutes, Paul said. The teams continued to battle. In the last minute, an onrushing Maverick slammed into Martin, and she crumpled to the grass. Im fine, Im fine, she told a referee, who informed her that there were 20 seconds left. (She kicked me in the eye, she said later, her mascara minimally smeared.) McCarthy had one more chance, a throw-in from the corner. Schoneck headed the ball away. Martin ran to join her celebrating teammates in the gathering dusk. At midfield, Pauls voice rang out: Yeah, babe, that was Key West ball.Lady Conchs hold onFrom Conchs,1Ba kickoff return for a touchdown and three almost lengthof-the-field scoring drives was too much to overcome.The game began promisingly for the Conchs. Soon after the kickoff, Roberto Val stripped the ball from quarterback Kendrick Edwards, setting up a first down on the Norland 28 yard line. But after a 20-yard run by Deonte Stemage who was later injured and didnt play in the second half Elliott Valdez lost a fumble on the 10. The Vikings then drove 90 yards for a 7-0 lead.Later in the first quarter, a 78-yard run by Valdez gave the Conchs a first-andgoal on the 2 On film, it looked like he was in, Hughes said but they couldnt score. Key West got the ball back when Norland failed on a fourthand-seven in its own territory, and, soon after, Norman Lopez ran 17 yards for a tying TD with a minute left in the half. Travies Smith then returned the ensuing kickoff 94 yards for a TD and a 147 lead at intermission. (It was the fourth time this season the Conchs gave up a scoring kickoff return.) Norlands fourth lost fumble led to another scoring run (nine yards) by Lopez with five minutes left in the third quarter. Ricardo Gomezs extra-point kick was wide and the Vikings led, 14-13.Behind a mammoth line the Vikings went on a 90-yard drive to close out the third quarter with a 20-13 lead.In the fourth, after the Conchs were stopped deep in Norland territory, the Vikings drove 89 yards for a 27-13 lead with five minutes left.The Conchs didnt give up. Quarterback Donald Roberts scored from a yard out to cut the lead to 27-20. Asuccessful onside kick followed. Do you believe in miracles? broadcaster Judd Wise shouted over WKWF Radio as the Conchs took over on the Norland 49.On first down, Lopez broke free behind the secondary, but Roberts, harassed by fierce rush, didnt see him in time.

Distinctive and Tasteful Floridas Most Beautiful Women Private Table Dances Available Full Liquor and Food Served til Close Open til 4am Couples Welcome Homegrownbrings us back to Floridas pastChildhood memories can last a lifetime, shaping us into the adults we become. Homegrown in Florida is a paean to those memories as well as a valentine to growing up in the Sunshine State. William McKeen, a former University of Florida professor who now chairs the Department of Journalism at Boston University, has assembled an impressive and diverse array of authors and journalists to present lifealtering memories. Each part of the state is represented, from the Panhandle to the Keys, in 37 entries that include essays, poems, song lyrics, book excerpts and an interview. Not every memory is pleasant but each is poignant in its own way. Scattered throughout the mixture of original work and previously published tales are childhood photos. Bestselling crime fiction author Michael Connelly, who grew up in Fort Lauderdale, has written before about how, as a teenager, he stumbled upon a gun that had just been stashed by a man who had shot another. But Night Shift isnt a reprint; Connelly took the time to rewrite his tale. Aselection from Tim Dorseys comic mystery Florida Roadkill illustrates the maturation of his character Serge A. Storm, a Florida aficionado and serial killer, on a statewide trek that includes beloved childrens shows, jai alai and Burdines. An excerpt from Carl Hiaasens young adult novel Flush looks at a boys adoration of his father. Isis, from Zora Neale Hurstons short-story collection Spunk, is an affectionate look at childhood mischief from this respected author who lived in rural Eatonville near Orlando. Journalist/author Bill Maxwells Crescent City offers a sobering account of segregation, racial discrimination and verbal and physical assaults by white men that he endured during the 1950s. He also fondly remembers growing up in the close-knit black community of Crescent City, between Deland and Palatka. In 1972, western Broward was a long way from the traffic-challenged suburbs of today. Thats where journalist James Conner Baltzelle sets Eight Court Punks, his amusing slice of life about a summer day in Plantation.Growing up in a family of Cuban exiles who settled in Miramar in the early 1980s, journalist and nonfiction author Carlos Frias, who now lives in Pembroke Pines, shows how he learned to move comfortably between cultures in Twelve.Homegrown shows a raw, slower-paced Florida. We remembered the sunbleached old Florida, when the closest thing to a tourist attraction was that mom-andpop place on U.S. 27 where you could watch Gramps wrestle an alligator, McKeen writes in the introduction. Where exactly was that place? I cant tell you now. Did it exist or was that manufactured by memory? That place still exists in Homegrown. Oline H.

Well do what we do, but we need to find a way to slow down LaSalles speed, Holly said. I think were pretty evenly matched in most areas, but they are very fast. Well run right at them, play hard and have fun.State swimmersSenior swimmer Luis Santiesteban heads a group of four Hurricane boys heading to Orlando for Saturdays Florida Class A Swimming Championships.Santiesteban scored Coral Shoreshighest finish at last weekends Region 4Aqualifying meet with a third-place spot in the 100yard freestyle.His time of 47.76 seconds actually resulted in a tie for third in the final heat his second straight tie in the event. Santiesteban shares the District 12 100freestyle title after a rare tie in a fast swim decided by hundredths of a second. The regional winner scored a 45.87-second time. Joining Santiesteban at the state meet will be his 200-freestyle relay teammates Evin Zekthi, Luke Miller and Garrett Munshower, who took fifth at the regional with a 1:30.68 finish. The same quartet took seventh (3:20.23) in the regionals 400-free relay.In the boys individual 200-free, Santiesteban (1:44.92) and Zekthi (1:45.41) took fifth and sixth, respectively, at the regional. Zekthi is the districts event champ. Timebased seeding for the state title meet was not available.Swimmers in stateFrom Hurricanes,1B and 16th minutes to lead 31 at the half. They were taking shots from outside the [18-yard box] and we havent played a team able to do that before. It caught us off guard and so we focused on that in the second half, Durkin said.Still, Venice netted goals in the 41st, 48th and 58th minutes to go up 6-1. Konrath scored a sneaky goal in the 64th minute to make it 6-2, stealing a pass back to the goalie from a Venice defender and scoring.Durkin had high praise for the defensive efforts of Jesenia De La Cruz against a skilled and speedy McCarthy team.Jesenia played a heck of a game on Friday. We had her in the back until the last 20 minutes. That team was fast and her speed kept it from being a mercy rule, she said. Archbishop McCarthy proved an equally difficult opponent Saturday afternoon, spreading eight goals out over the 80 minutes in a comfortable win. Konraths first goal in that game came in the 13th minute, on a breakaway off a Rodamer pass. She scored later on a play that showed the Dolphins (1-2) have no quit in them. Captain Brandi Spalten fought hard to keep possession of the ball near midfield and got the ball to Gaby Ceja, who put a through ball down the left side for Konrath. She outran the defense and scored.The Dolphins were scheduled to host Island Christian School Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. The girls are slated to host Carrollton School today at 4 p.m. at the Marathon Community Park.Carrollton visitsFrom Dolphins,1B
