KeysIslandProperties.com 305-296-1234 With tax OK'd,prioritizing startsNow that Florida Keys voters have extended a 1-cent sales tax dedicated to infrastructure upgrades for another two decades, Monroe County commissioners will chart plans to spend it on projects both necessary and desirable. "Let's stop dragging these projects along and move forward in a way that benefits our residents in a matter of a few years, not 10 years or more," Commission Major George Neugent said at Tuesday's commission meeting in Key Largo. The extension of the tax to 2033 passed 23,165 to 10,850 in the Nov. 6 election could generate more than $350 million at current revenue rates. Board members know sewer construction projects, like the Cudjoe Regional system in the Lower Keys, will consume a large percentage of the revenue, all dedicated to capital improvements. Costly repairs to countyowned roads, bridges and buildings will take millions more. But favorable interest rates and a construction industry looking for work could mean other delayed or new projects could be within reach, County Administrator Roman Gastesi told commissioners. "All projects are going to be less expensive today than tomorrow," Gastesi said. "If it costs $3 million today, it could cost $5 million in a few years." Gastesi suggested commissioners think about local projects that should be on the work plan. Neugent said while sewers, stormwater upgrades and canal restoration are obvious priorities, "there are some projects that I think may be beyond need and into the want'side." "We have some things that are falling apart," said Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said, pointing to needed repairs at the Marathon and Plantation Key courthouses. As for new projects, she noted that a county-owned lot adjacent to the Key Largo Community Park could be used for something besides occasional overflow parking during major events. Murphy mentioned that a walking and jogging path at the park, originally installed with a rubberized springy surface, has been replaced with hard asphalt. "That's hard on the knees," she said. "So many people have asked to have that [rubber surface] back."

Manuel Argomaniz, 18, remained in custody at press time Friday under bonds totaling more than $80,000. According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, a man living in Key Largo Trailer Village awoke at 5:20 a.m. Thursday to discover a burglar in his home on 2nd Court. The burglar ran off, headed down Kay Drive. As Deputy Vaughn O'Keefe answered the resident's 911 call, the officer spotted a Chevrolet Monte Carlo "driving slowly and erratically speeding up, slowing down and weaving back and forth," said agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin. Argomaniz, who matched the description given by the victim, was driving. Argomaniz reportedly does not have a driver's license. The car turned out to have been stolen from Gordon Circle on Key Largo. The car was unlocked with the keys inside, the owner told Detective Francisco Gaete.

The pier has 44 slips with around 30 liveaboard vessels, primarily houseboats, in mooring. It was originally built in 1972 and 1973, with an extension added in 1990. The winning bid comes from Ebsary Foundation Co. of Miami and includes replacement of the pier, situated between North Roosevelt Boulevard and Palm Avenue, along with replacing electric, water, sewer, phone, cable and fire-suppression infrastructure. Once construction starts (a date hasn't been negotiated yet), the vessels at the Tarpon Pier will have to temporarily move to the nearby Wahoo or Marlin piers. That work will be done by Sea Tow U.S.A. and is expected to cost around $20,000. Commissioner Mark Rossi, whose District 2 includes the Garrison Bight, vigorously questioned city staff's decision to use epoxycoated steel pilings instead of slightly less-expensive concrete pilings. Staff engineer Birchard Ohlinger said the steel would last longer than concrete if regular maintenance were performed by way of reapplying epoxy as needed. "If we use the steel pilings, we get an indefinite lifespan. They can be repaired, they're serviceable and they're durable," he said. "Concrete is a one-shot deal." "No disrespect to anybody in the city," Rossi came back, "but our track record of preventative maintenance on equipment is probably one of the worst I've ever seen. That's just the way we work." In terms of comparative price, he said, "You're basically in the same ballpark for steel vs. concrete after 20 years. Concrete is a much longer and lasting fix for this." Assistant City Manager David Fernandez made his case for the metal. "Steel is a more durable and stronger product; you can use less of it making the installation cheaper," he said. "If we were to change to concrete, we would have to rebid and then go out and hope you get a competitive rebid." "Staff is concerned the lost time on this project will put us well into hurricane season and compromise Tarpon Pier and the boats tied up to it," he added. "This project will give them a superior mooring for hurricanes well into the future." "As to maintenance, we have to change the way we do preventative maintenance and it's easily done. This is a good project for the city."Staff's firm that concrete isn't the bestKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe Tarpon Pier,more than 30 years old,will be replaced in the coming months with steel rather than concrete pilings.The Key West City Commission approved a $1.2 million construction contract Tuesday night.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comNo trial delay yet for ToppinoThe aftermath of surgery might be enough to put off a felony trial but a planned trip to Cuba isnt, a Keys judge has ruled. Thats what two defendants heard from Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones on Wednesday as they tried to push back their trial, apparently until after State Attorney Dennis Ward leaves office and his predecessor, Catherine Vogel, is sworn in on Jan. 8. Key West police say that on July 19, 2011, Paul Toppino, 69, along with codefendants Michael Dennis, 67, and Graciela Lozano, 48, went to an apartment at 1719 Thompson St., which, Lozano manages, to evict tenant Angel Roman. Toppino had in his pocket a .38-caliber Ruger handgun with six bullets one in the chamber and a backup magazine in his pocket; Dennis wielded a baseball bat. When Roman answered the door, the group allegedly rushed in and starting beating him. Lozano is charged with burglary with assault, Dennis with burglary with assault while armed with a dangerous weapon and Toppino with burglary with assault while carrying a firearm. Toppino and Dennis had sought continuances as the Dec. 10 trial looms. Wednesday, Jones denied Dennisrequest, which was based on Dennisplanned travel to Cuba on a humanitarian trip during the trial week. I find no merit to that, Jones said. Im sorry, but that does not take priority over this trial. As for Toppino, his attorney, Jerome Ballarotto, told Jones his client is having rotator cuff surgery this coming Monday and is slated to be taking 10 milligrams of the narcotic painkiller Percocet every four hours over the trial dates. Toppino volunteered that he injured his shoulder when he fell down in a parking lot mid-day. Ballarotto said side effects of Percocet include nausea and drowsiness, and said Jones should postpone the trial to err on the side of caution. All kinds of things can happen. I dont think it would be prudent for the court to take a chance, he said. Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson said of the side effects: Its possible. Is it probable? I dont think so. Generally speaking, people manage just fine. Jones called for additional testimony and is scheduled to decide on Wednesday whether Toppino is to be tried with his co-defendants. The real goal, Wilson said, is for the defendants to be able to renegotiate with a different prosecutor. I think thats whats going on here.IN THE COURTSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.commine [Rojas] actually was in the midst of selling some of these counterfeit tags and ended up selling 100 at $50 a pop," said FWC Officer Jorge Pino, an agency spokesman. "We knew some of these tags were being used already." The case could lead to additional state and federal counts. Investigation started June 29 when U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents intercepted a suspicious package shipped to Florida from Colombia. Inside the package were 1,512 yellow plastic tags bearing serial numbers and state identification. The package was passed along to federal wildlife officers, who forwarded it to the FWC. "To an untrained eye, they might have looked like real tags but our inspector immediately identified the tags as counterfeit," Pino said. "Not to mention, they were coming into Florida from Colombia." The package was resealed for delivery, with FWC officers keeping watch. Other details on the investigation are still considered confidential. "We've seen counterfeit trap tags before so that wasn't a surprise," Pino said. "We were a little surprised at the lengths he went to, going to another country to get this many." "This goes contrary to everything the FWC is trying to achieve as a conservation agency in terms of protecting the resource," Pino said. "Putting what could have been a large number of illegal traps in the water has the potential to do a lot of damage." Trap tags have been required by the state since 1992 as part of an effort to control and reduce the number of traps used by Florida commercial fishermen. Currently about 490,000 tags are issued annually, down from a peak of 750,000. Lobstermen receive an allocation of tags based on their history of commercial trap harvests. People who want to enter the fishery or increase their trap numbers must buy trap certificates, which include the right to buy trap tags, from other fishermen. Atag itself costs only $1 each from the state but certificates can sell for more than $100 each.Not a surpriseFrom Traps,1A to finish a strategic plan thats been in the draft stage for a long time. Weve had 100-some community meetings for at least the last four years but we still dont have anything to look at yet, she said. Budget Director Tina Boan and Gastesi said the county is advertising for a senior director of strategic planning and fiscal management. The person who takes that post, with an advertised salary range of $66,000 to $102,000, will oversee completion of the CommuniKeys plan and its implementation, Gastesi said. In other matters at the November session: Commissioners agreed to County Attorney Bob Shillingers request for a closed executive session to hear details of a legal settlement forwarded by litigants in a lawsuit over providing commercial electric power to No Name Key. Commissioners emphasized that holding the session does not mean they are ready to back away from the countys general opposition to commercial power on the remote island because of environmental rules. Keys Energy has already erected poles and strung lines so the 43 homes on No Name can convert to commercial power from solar and generators, but fighting over it among neighbors has resulted in protracted litigation thats ongoing. Arule change that allows Monroe County libraries to host author book-signings with book sales was approved without comment. It also would allow some craft workshops at libraries to charge for materials.Planner coming From Commission,1A 29967 Overseas Hwy.

Bell'Sunken remains of a steamship lying on the Key Largo reef for more than a century now have an official name the Hannah M. Bell. Archaeologists with the federal Office of National Marine Sanctuaries confirmed this week that everything known about the shipwreck matches up with recorded descriptions of the Hannah M. Bell which sunk on April 4, 1911. "Similar to the way detectives use forensic information to solve a crime, we compared the dimensions and construction characteristics of the shipwreck ... with historic shipping records in order to solve this mystery," said Matthew Lawrence, Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary maritime archaeologist and the project's principal investigator. "Measurements of the shipwreck and the records for Hannah M. Bell were virtually identical, as were the reported sinking location and the actual location of the wreck," he said. Four scientifically trained divers from the National Association of Black Scuba Divers volunteered three days of underwater charting in September to help in the last phase of identifying the remains. The shipwreck, at mooring buoy E-7 inside the Elbow Sanctuary Preservation Area six miles offshore, is known locally as Mike's Wreck in honor of a popular scuba instructor who died while diving. The 315-foot, steelhulled cargo steamship was built in England in 1893, and named for the woman who christened it. Both the steam engines and other valuable pieces were recovered by salvagers. The steamship was headed to Mexico with a load of coal when it went down after hitting a reef, now know as The Elbow.

Forall your real estate needs, give me a call today! 11050 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL33050 Proud supporter of the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation N ile c r oc s till o n the loo s eState wildlife officials are on the lookout for at least one Nile crocodile that likely escaped from a MiamiDade County home several months ago. Three of the Nile crocs, native to Africa and much more aggressive than their American cousins found in South Florida, were somehow released from a MiamiDade residence, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino. The FWC says only one is unaccounted for. It was last spotted in the C-103 canal in Homestead over the summer, said Frank Mazzotti, professor of wildlife ecology at the University of Florida. While not time to panic, Mazzotti said the Nile crocodile is well suited for the South Florida climate, and a breeding population could get established here. He said wildlife officials must be proactive in not letting that happen, or risk having a situation on their hands similar to that of the Burmese python, which thrives in the Everglades and is now found in the Keys. Nile crocodiles are well adapted for the Everglades habitat, Mazzotti said. Thats why we need to respond while we only have one or two animals out there. About 2,000 American saltwater crocodiles live in South Florida, mostly from south Miami-Dade County to the Florida Keys, but there has never been a documented attack by one on a human. The biggest scare the area experienced was when a 10-foot croc leapt out of a Key Largo canal and killed a 65-pound dog in March. The Nile crocodile, on the other hand, is known to be very dangerous to people. Theyre naturally found in sub-Saharan Africa. According to National Geographic, about 200 people are killed every year by the jaws of the reptiles. The average Nile croc is 16 feet long and weighs about 500 pounds. But they can also grow much larger more than 2,000 pounds, according to the San Diego Zoo Library. They live on average about 45 years. Adult American crocodiles can grow between 7 and 14 feet long and weigh between 150 and 450 pounds, according to the environmental group Defenders of Wildlife. Carli Segelson, another FWC spokeswoman, said the croc they are looking for is much younger and much smaller about 3 to 4 feet long. Pino said crocodiles and alligators grow about a foot per year until they reach full maturity. The last time the Nile crocodile was seen was before Hurricane Isaac passed by South Florida in late August, Segelson said. It may or may not even still be alive, Segelson said. Mazzotti said he and his team have been tracking the croc since March. But obtaining the proper permitting to go after the animal took months. Then Hurricane Isaac came, and poof, it disappeared, Mazzotti said. American crocodiles prefer to live in salt and brackish water. The Nile croc lives in fresh water, but Segelson said they are also found in brackish water. The Nile crocodiles were not released, but somehow managed to get out of their enclosure, Pino said. He did not identify the owner. Its safe to say that whenever you have captive wildlife escape, someone has to be held responsible for them, Pino said. The person was not maintaining proper caging requirements. Owning wild exotic animals like Nile crocodiles is not illegal if the owner has the proper permits, Pino said. So far, wildlife officials are not concerned the crocodile they are looking for will breed with a native croc. It is highly unlikely that an American crocodile would be able to breed with the Nile crocodile, Segelson said. Anyone with information about the escaped croc should call (888) 404-3922.Tracker says its possible it settles inKEY LARGODAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com Plant VendorsBamboo, Bananas, Bromeliads, Crotons, Orchids, Flowering Trees, Fruit Trees, Native PlantsLocal ArtistsPoery, Sea Glass Artists, Jewelry, Local Honey, Old Growth Cypress WoodGarage Sale, Good Food Free Admission & ParkingSATURDAY, DECEMBER 1 11a.m. 4 p.m.Key West Garden Club Fall Plant & Art ShowWest Martello Tower at Higgs BeachMemberships available at the clubSUNDAY, DECEMBER 2 10a.m. 3 p.m. More information call 305-294-3210, keywestgardenclub.com Kinneer keeps job, narrowlyIn a 3-2 vote, the Monroe County School Board on Tuesday approved a sixmonth contract extension for Chief Operating Officer Michael Kinneer. Kinneer had already agreed to stay in the post until June 30 with a 5 percent pay cut, from $126,639 down to $120,307. He was originally hired to serve as the chief financial officer on Dec. 16, 2009, under a three-year contract. When he was running (successfully) this year for a sixth four-year term, now-board Chairman Andy Griffiths questioned the need for Kinneer's and Chief of Staff Ken Gentile's somewhat overlapping positions. He and Ed Davidson, elected to replace District 3 member Duncan Mathewson, were the two votes against extending Kinneer's contract as recommended by Superintendent Mark Porter. "If you look at where we're at," Griffiths told the Keynoter "it just seems to me, in an organization of our size, if we're going to have these high salaries, we should have the expertise on the educational side." He recalled previous finance directors doing the same work but earning salaries in the $60,000 range. Griffiths' criticism comes as Porter is working to realign his top administrators while implementing new job descriptions. The new titles are director of finance and performance, director of operations and planning, director of human resources, director of accountability and assessment, and director of teaching and learning. The closest existing positions, respectively are Gentile, Kinneer, Director of Human Resources Cheryl Allen, Director of Accountability and Assessment Christina McPherson and Chief Academic Officer Theresa Axford. Griffiths said that moving forward, he would approach upper-level personnel decisions with a three-pronged test. "How many directors do we actually need? What's the level of expertise? And how much does that cost?" Gentile's three-year contract expires in April and Porter has signaled he will seek to renew that until June 30, as well. In October, Porter handed down a five-day unpaid suspension to Gentile as punishment for Gentile putting on his resume that he is a certified public accountant in Florida, which is not true. Gentile has an active CPAlicense in New York but has never held that designation in Florida. Originally hired to serve as chief internal auditor, Gentile earns $122,000 per year under his three-year deal. The week's suspension would cost him $2,300.Board votes 3-2 to retain through JuneMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Over the past 21 months, Diane has been the #1 forSales in the LowerKeys and on average SOLD 2 of herSellers Properties Every Monthto add YOUR property to herlist Call Diane today! 29967 Overseas Hwy.

The complete Florida Keys news and information source. Photo by DAVID GOODHUERescuers measure Pilgrim after finally getting the manatee to shore.The calf is at the Miami Seaqarium rehabilitating. make it difficult for him to stay down long, said Mary Stella of the Dolphin Research Center, located on Grassy Key. The cold weather means more manatees are coming into canals to stay warm. Pilgrim was surrounded by at least six adult manatees, but none appeared to be his mother. This means he wasn't nursing and probably wasn't getting enough to eat, said Kit Curtin, a contract biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey Manatees usually wean from their mothers about a year after birth, but manatees in the Keys appear to take longer, maybe up to two years, Curtin said. The scientists and researchers agreed Pilgrim needed to be removed from the canal and taken to the Seaquarium for rehabilitation. Easier said than done. In the morning, Curtin, Stella, FWC law enforcement officers Aja Vickers and Shelton Bartlett and other members of the Dolphin Research Center kept an eye on Pilgrim as he floated and made the occasional dive in the deep canal. The rescuers tried to lure Pilgrim to a dock behind a Pirates Cove home with fresh water from a hose a no-no for civilians because the mammals are federally protected. But while the hose attracted the other manatees, Pilgrim stayed away at first. When John Cassady and his crew with the FWC's manatee research section arrived from Tequesta around noon, they were able to get Pilgrim close enough to the dock to try to nab him with a large net attached to a pole. But the normally slow Pilgrim showed had enough strength and speed to avoid capture. He came out of the net as quickly as he entered it, leaving with a giant splash. "Come on Pilgrim," Stella said. "If only he knew we are here to help." Cassady then launched the research section boat a converted mullet boat with the outboard motor located in the center of the vessel, right in front of the center consul so as to avoid hitting manatees with the prop during rescues. Aided by two Dolphin Research Center members on kayaks, Cassady and DRC's Armando Rodriguez slowly tracked Pilgrim around the canal. But the team was playing a game of Whac-a Mole. Pilgrim would pop up at one end of the canal and disappear by the time the boat got close to him, only to turn up a minute later yards away from the rescue vessel. After a couple of hours of pursuit, Pilgrim started to get tired and stayed where the canal dead-ended against the neighborhood. The team finally had him cornered. But DRC members had to get into the water, between a dragnet they had unfurled and the seawall, to persuade Pilgrim to move toward a boat ramp where Rodriguez, Cassady and other DRC members were waiting with the pole net. Pilgrim finally gave up and was scooped up with the net and placed on a foam mat on the boat ramp. The weather in South Florida is colder earlier than usual this year, meaning more manatees will be moving closer to shore and into the warmer canal waters. Curtin said this means boaters have to be extra cautious. "Accidents happen, but people have to remember that they're not the only ones on the water," she said. "So slow it down."Stubborn Pilgrim gives upFrom Manatee,1A

On Nov. 19, we walked to Mallory Square for the sunset celebration. We had four children with us. Over the years, sunset and the street artists at Mallory were must-dos on our list. They're world famous. We tell all our foreign friends to go to Key West and see sunset at Mallory. It's one of the greatest nature spectacles we have found anywhere. What a great thing for the general public enjoy. We love seeing the big wooden sailboats and catamarans as they go by the dock with the sun slowly setting in the background. When we arrived at Mallory about 4:15 p.m., we saw two huge cruise ships almost totally blocking our view of Key West Harbor and sunset. I thought many years ago the city of Key West sorted this out. I recall the cruise ships had to be out of port before sunset. Our kids had a great time watching the street performers, but we were limited to about 15 degrees of viewing the sunset along with about 150 other people or so crammed behind the conchfritter stand and the pier bollards as we all peered between the two ships. The only vessel I saw was a Jet Ski doing doughnuts between the cold steel hulls. I asked one of the local vendors why the ships were there, and she stated that 12 days in season, cruise ships are allowed by the city to dock after sunset. When did this change happen? Did the citizens of Key West vote for this? Will the city increase the number of dockings next year? I went to the city website and there is a schedule of cruise-ship dockings and departures. One of the cruise ships blocking our view departed at 6 p.m., right after sunset. I guess I need to do research before coming to town. I think the general public (people that drive to Key West and spend money) should know when they can see a sunset instead of being surprised by a steel hull of a ship or two. I assume the city of Key West makes big money on the dockage. I'll bet the port side of the cruise ships had a great view. What a shame. We did not stay in Old Town for dinner. Mark Clarke StuartEnvironment benefitsNow that the elections are finally over, our federal senators and representatives should act to pass important legislation that has languished not due to a lack bipartisan support, but because they have been caught up in Washington's political maelstrom. Two bills in particular need immediate attention, both related to land and water. Senate Bill 339 and House Resolution 1964 would make permanent federal tax incentives for private landowners who voluntary place permanent development restrictions on their lands. Landowners do so by placing perpetual conservation easements on their property, benefiting us all with water protection and wildlife habitat, and without any government ownership. This bill enjoys overwhelming support from Democrats and Republicans, and needs to be passed by the end of this year, either standing alone or as part of an overall compromise tax bill. The other bill has, until this past year, been a no-brainer as to passage: The farm bill. Without a farm bill, the agricultural sector of our nation has no surety as to production. Moreover, no action means extremely worthwhile conservation programs will flounder. Passage of the farm bill during the so-called lame-duck session is critical. No matter who won or lost on Nov. 6, our elected leaders need to go back to work and do the jobs our citizens expect them to do. Expedited passage of these important bills would be a very good start. Preston Robertson VP, Florida Wildlife Federation TallahasseeWhile there are numerous problems that need fixing, there are many reasons we should feel optimisticWe observed Thanksgiving 2012 at a time when our nation has much to celebrate. The economy continues to inch forward and hundreds of thousands of American men and women in uniform have come home to their loved ones. Once again the nation has held a peaceful election that produced a clear winner and hopeful signs that national leaders are ready to reconcile their differences and agree to work together for the public good. Voters in Monroe County showed their faith in the future by overwhelmingly extending a 1-cent sales tax though 2033 to fund infrastructure improvements. That will go a long way toward finishing Keys sewer projects, and fixing bridges and roads. All of this gives a "turning the corner" feel to events in South Florida. There is much to be thankful for in 2012. As we approach the end of another hurricane season, we have once again been fortunate to escape the ravages of a major storm, aware that many of our fellow citizens in the northeast faced a bleak Thanksgiving because their homes were destroyed and lives upended by an invader called Sandy. At the same time, amid these blessings, there are reasons to be apprehensive. The economic recovery remains fragile and could be endangered if public officials fail to reach agreement on crucial issues. The bitter tone of the campaign has abated, but not disappeared. Recent events remind us that the Middle East remains explosive, a crucible of danger and a recurring menace to global stability. The state has failed to solve the issue of windstorm insurance that brings many homeowners to the edge of despair. Complaints of voters suppression and incompetence by election officials must be addressed. On balance, though, what is most striking this Thanksgiving season is American resilience, the practical spirit of determination to overcome hardship. We have seen that in the last few years as we emerge from an era of war and economic gloom. It is what Abraham Lincoln had in mind when he told the nation 149 years ago to set aside its troubles -far greater than ours today, with the dead at Gettysburg still fresh in the memory of the living -and to give thanks on Thanksgiving Day. He believed that those things that give Americans a common legacy and forge bonds of unity are stronger and more durable than whatever divides us. If he could hold fast to that faith in America in 1863, surely those who share the bounties and liberties of this country today can do the same.

Griffiths has been chairman several times before, notably as the School District was going through a six-figure financial scandal that resulted in the ouster of the then-superintendent in 2009 and the superintendent's wife, a district administrator convicted of stealing more than $400,000 in public money. Ron Martin, former principal of Coral Shores High School, got the nod to serve as vice chairman, his first time in one of the leadership roles. New board member Ed Davidson, replacing District 3's Duncan Mathewson, nominated both Martin and Griffiths, setting the stage for two unanimous votes. Prior to the organizational part of the meeting, Circuit Court Judge Richard Payne swore in Davidson and Griffiths, marking the official start of their terms following the Nov. 6 election. School Board members earn $29,000 per year plus benefits. John Dick, the outgoing board chairman, and Martin will serve respectively as the board representative and alternate on the Monroe County Value Adjustment Board, which hears appeals of county property value assessments. Robin Smith-Martin will continue in his capacity as board representative to the Greater Florida Consortium of School Boards. Davidson defeated John Welsh, a former Key West High School principal, as a reform candidate pushing a return to school-based managed, which recognizes that the Keys geography lends itself to community decisions when it comes to some school issues rather than a centralized, bureaucratic approach. "There's no doubt there's broad support for reform," Davidson said. "I think we're going to see some great results because we're on the same team." Alluding to Superintendent Mark Porter's position as the Keys'first-ever board-hired not elected schools chief, Davidson said, "This is the first moment the School Board actually becomes in charge."Griffiths back as chairman, Davidson inMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYEd Davidson,the newest member of the School Board,is known for wearing a hat sporting his name,with Capt.'in front of it.Following his swearing-in Tuesday,his four board colleagues along with Superintendent Mark Porter broke out matching lids bearing their names prefaced by Captain'while giving Davidson one that says Ensign.' www.keysnet.com

After the crowds have shopped at large stores and sprawling malls on Black Friday, many smaller businesses hope today will be their day. Thousands of small stores, restaurants, spas and even dry cleaners across the U.S. will offer their own discounts and promotions to draw holiday shoppers on what's known as Small Business Saturday.American Express created the day three years ago, it says, to help small businesses struggling during the recession.The credit and charge card company encourages card holders, who have registered in advance online to make purchases with their cards in exchange for a $25 rebate paid for by American Express, if they buy something at a participating business. American Express won't say how much the promotion costs, but Susan Sobbott, president of American Express OPEN, the company's smallbusiness division, says it is a considerable amount.But even small merchants who aren't officially part of the event hope to get a bump in revenue during a weekend when they used to be all but forgotten in an avalanche of deep discounts offered by big stores and online retailers. Perhaps more importantly, the day has become an opportunity for small businesses to build a corps of customers.In Dixon, Ill., 51 small businesses have banded together to recruit local artists and performers to create a party-like atmosphere today, and they're planning other events for the holiday season.Ayear ago, the combination of the American Express rebate and the events helped give the participating businesses a collective revenue increase of more than 50 percent on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, says Lisa Higby, owner of Distinctive Gardens, a nursery and garden center there. But the benefit goes beyond a one-day jolt."It gives us a yearlong impact, much greater exposure for our business," Higby says.American Express may have intended to give small merchants and card usage a boost in a tough economy, but Small Business Saturday is also helping small merchants get a bigger share of the spotlight and spending between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a shopping holiday dreamed up to get people excited about shopping online on the Monday after Thanksgiving.

Put it on paperAre you still searching for perfect job? Here's an exercise for you to complete over the next week to help you come up with a development commitment plan. This plan works whether you are looking for a new job, want to strike off on your own or want to make any type of changes in your life. Let's use employment as the example. Get out a sheet of paper or pull up an Excel document, and create three columns on it.At the top of Column 1, write: "Things I have in my job now, or in past jobs, that I don't want in my next job." On Column 2, put down: "Things I have in my job now, or in past jobs, that I want in my next job." Column 3 says: "Things I haven't had in any job that I want as part of my next job." Fill in all the blanks as appropriate.Keep in mind that these things can be anything, including job duties, work environment, type of people in your office, type of customers you work with, number of hours you work, wages, dress code, benefits, respect from your boss or coworkers whatever comes to mind. As the week progresses, add or delete items in any of the columns. Highlight those items that speak loudest to you. Which are the most important to have, or not have, in your next job? Don't worry about setting goals at this point; this is merely a tool to help you more clearly identify what you do and do not want.At the end of the week, go to the third column and put a minus sign in front of those items that require development. They could be anything from moving to a new location to getting more education to leaving a relationship that does not allow you to grow or express yourself fully.Identify five items in the last column that are absolutely non-negotiable in any job you have. Mark them with a plus sign. How do you determine what's non-negotiable? Go with your gut. Just don't let the expectations and desires of others rule your thinking. Be sure to watch out for words like "can't," "won't," "impossible," "stupid," "illogical," "selfish," "unrealistic" and the rest of those judgmental terms as you work through this process. Many times, these words were internalized when we were children, as they were spoken by mostly well-meaning adults who wanted to keep us safe. What's changed, of course, is that you are an adult yourself now. It's up to you to decide if these terms hold any relevance for you today, or if they need to be thrown onto the trash heap.You have the right to want what you want. And you have the right to be supported in whatever decisions you make. Let those decisions take you where you want to be. Now you're ready to come up with a list of actionable goals on which to building your action plan. Need help? Consult a coach.

The unanimous vote invokes what's called zoning in progress, which essentially freezes specific types of development to allow planning staff to draft regulatory law specific to the requested land use. Over the next 180 days, planners will define "painmanagement clinic;" limit their presence to certain zoning districts; require a conditional use for the facilities; regulate distance between clinics and existing pharmacies; limit onsite dispensing; and outlaw them within 1,000 feet of schools. There currently aren't any pain-management clinics also known as pill mills in Key West and no known plans to open any. South Florida is considered the pill-mill capitol of the country. Drug abusers nationwide especially from Kentucky and Missouri come down here specifically to go to pain clinics to illegally obtain prescription drugs. There's even a name for the route: The Oxy Express, named after Oxy-codone. The U.S. Attorney's Office and state regulators have cracked down on them and had success in shutting many down while arresting their operators and co-conspirators, but they still operate, mostly on mainland South Florida. Key West's Planning Board OK'd the local law in October. Before it's official, commissioner will have to approve the zoning in progress in a second public hearing. Commissioners also approved a plan from local history buff Bruce Neff's Historic Markers Inc. project to place about 100 banners on streetlights on Truman Avenue, Duval Street, Front Street, Greene Street and Mallory Square. Intended to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon's discovery of Florida, each banner will feature the tagline "500 Years of Paradise." The banners will be up from January to December and each will feature a "historical nugget" of information.Law to make it difficult for openingsKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comwith Deputy Pedro Garcia and O'Keefe.

CORAL SHORES LACROSSEHamer chooses the GatorsCoral Shores High School girls lacrosse standout Katharine Hamer has two seasons remaining in her Lady Cane career but already knows where she plans play after her 2014 graduation. Hamer, a junior expected to lead the Canes defense this spring, has declared her intent to attend the University of Florida to play in one of the nation's top NCAADivision 1 lacrosse programs. "I wanted to stay in the state and the University of Florida is the best lacrosse program in the state, so why not?" Hamer said Friday. "The academics are awesome, the facilities are brand new and the way they treat athletes is amazing." Lady Gators coaches "have been trying to get Katharine since she was in the ninth grade" when they spotted Hamer in a lacrosse camp for high-schoolers, Coral Shores head coach Mark Hall said. Although she cannot formally sign an NCAAletter until November 2013, Hamer said she is intent on wearing the blue-and-orange uniform of Florida. Florida reached the NCAAFinal Four of women's lacrosse last season with a 19-3 record before falling in the national semifinals to top-ranked Syracuse. Hamer last visited Gainesville on Oct. 20, receiving a field pass to the South Carolina game. "I got to meet [Olympic swimming gold medalist] Ryan Lochte so that was very cool," Hamer said. ACoral Shores defensive starter for the last two seasons both of which included district championships Hamer was second on the team in forced turnovers with 11 and tied for second in interceptions with six. She also delivered two assists and scored twice. "Katharine has set the bar very high for the rest of our team," Hall said. "Her scholarship to Florida will be a major inspiration for our other players so that they know that hard work and determination can pay off for them as well." Stetson University has Coral Shores graduates Cami Lopez and Raisa Santiesteban on its lacrosse roster, and expects to add Lady Cane leading scorer Julia Lozano next year. Stetson also was intently recruiting Hamer. She's notified Lady Hatter coaches of her intent play at Florida. Coral Shores Athletic Director Rich Russell noted that the handful of lacrosse scholarships available to NCAAteams typically are reserved for returning starters. "This is a great tribute to Katharine's talent and work ethic," Russell said. "It's also a tribute to Coach Hall and his lacrosse program."Defensive star would join top program Keynoter StaffCoral Shores High junior Katharine Hamer,seen in action last winter,has declared her intent to accept a lacrosse scholarship from the University of Florida,a national power in the women's sport. Gulliverbeats Lady ConchsKey West High girls basketball coach Tony McDowell had no trouble explaining Tuesday night's 60-32 loss to Gulliver Prep in Miami. "We missed shots, we missed layups on fouls that weren't called and we missed a lot of free throws," he said. It was the District 16-4A opener for the Conchs, who dropped to 1-1 overall. In a cold gym before a handful of spectators, Gulliver, shooting from long range, got off to a strong start and never let up. "They came out hitting threes," McDowell said.It was 25-6 after the first quarter and 48-18 at the half.The Conchs were led by Jamica Mack, who scored 11 points. Guard Tanisha Multy had 10 and scored the Conchs'first six points. McDowell was impressed with the play of guard Mikayla Stansbury, who returned after missing the first game against Marathon because of a throat ailment. "She ran the point and played very well," McDowell said. Stansbury scored five points, Brooke Marsden added four and Sahara Graft had two.The Conchs were at a disadvantage in the third quarter when Stansbury and Multy went out with injuries.Key West is off until next Saturday when it plays St. Brendan at 4:30 p.m. in a district game in Miami. The Conchs won't play at home again until Dec. 14 when they have a rematch with Gulliver. McDowell said he is determined to improve his team's free-throw shooting. "We have been shooting 10 free throws before practice and 20 after," he said. "Now we're going to shoot 20 before practice and if they miss one, they're going to run."Missed shots all around lead to lossBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST HOOPS Dolphins back on fields, courtsThe Marathon High School winter sports teams return to play Monday after a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Saturday,November 24,2012 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com How to make a betterlatkeWe know you're probably still barely able to move from that Thanksgiving dinner where you overdid it, but there's already another holiday around the corner that demands our foodie respect: Hanukkah. The eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights starts Dec. 8, and a central part of it is great latkes, or potato pancakes. Few foods are as satisfying as a golden potato pancake that is soft and tender inside, but crispy outside. But this simple dish so often is bungled. It can be undercooked, overcooked and/or soaked in grease. The key to great potato pancakes is using just a little bit of oil at the right temperature and finishing the cooking process in the oven. And that last step is key. By placing the fried pancakes (also called latkes) on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet, the hot air in the oven is able to circulate around them, keeping them dry and crisp (instead of steaming the bottom). I prefer hand grating my potatoes rather than using the food processor. I find the texture is better, more tender, and the shreds hold together more easily. When it comes to selecting the potatoes, I use a combination of either starchy russets or Yukon golds and sweet potatoes. The bright orange sweet potatoes add welcome color and a touch of sweetness to the pancakes. To keep the potatoes from changing color (oxidizing) and to maximize crispness, I soak them in ice water as I grate them. One of the best parts about this recipe is that you can prep them almost all the way (right through the frying stage) in advance, then just reheat them in the oven just before serving. And when you serve them, be sure to accompany them with applesauce and sour cream. What you need: Two pounds baking potatoes (such as russet or Yukon gold), peeled. One medium sweet potato (about half a pound), peeled. One small yellow onion or one large shallot. Two large eggs. Two tablespoons allpurpose flour. Kosher or sea salt. Peanut oil, for frying. Sour cream or creme fraiche, to serve. Applesauce, to serve. Fill a medium bowl with iced water. Using the medium holes on a box grater, grate the baking potatoes and sweet potato. Add the grated potatoes to the ice water and set aside. Use the fine holes on the grater to grate the onion or shallot. Drain the potatoes very well, squeezing out as much water as possible. In large bowl, combine the potatoes with the onion. Squeeze again to remove as much moisture as possible. To do this, grab the mixture a handful at a time and squeeze over the sink, then transfer to a dry bowl. When all of the mixture has been squeezed, add the eggs, flour and a bit of salt (start with half a teaspoon), then mix well. Set aside. In a large, deep saute pan over medium-high, heat about quarter inch of peanut oil to 360 degrees. To test the oil, drop a pinch of flour into the mixture. If the oil is ready, the flour should sizzle and brown almost immediately. While the oil heats, set a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Heat the oven to 350. Working in batches and using about two to three tablespoons of the potato mixture per pancake, drop the batter into the oil. Do not crowd the pan. Flatten each with a spatula and fry for four minutes per side, or until golden and crisp. As you fry the batches, you may need to add oil to the pan. Be sure to let it return to temperature between batches and additions of oil. As the pancakes finish, transfer them to the wire rack. Once all of the pancakes are fried, place them (rack and baking sheet) in the oven and heat for five to 10 minutes, or until warmed through. The pancakes also can be prepped in advance up to the oven stage, then reheated just before serving. To serve, sprinkle lightly with salt and accompany with sour cream and applesauce. Start to finish: 30 minutes. Makes 18 small pancakes.

KEYSNET.COM THANKSGIVING HISTORY The Key West Police Athletic League's holiday camp is in full swing this week,and the kids are learning lots of cool things from program coordinator Tez Waters.On Wednesday,they learned several phrases in sign language,like happy Thanksgiving,'as well as some Cherokee words.After decorating headbands and having their faces painted, the group played some traditional Native American games. Booze calories nearly equal to sodaAmericans get too many calories from soda. But what about alcohol? It turns out adults get almost as many empty calories from booze as from soft drinks, a government study found. Soda and other sweetened drinks the focus of obesity-fighting public health campaigns are the source of about 6 percent of the calories adults consume, on average. Alcoholic beverages account for about 5 percent, the new study found. "We've been focusing on sugar-sweetened beverages. This is something new," said Cynthia Ogden, one of the study's authors. She's an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which released its findings last Thursday. The government researchers say the findings deserve attention because, like soda, alcohol contains few nutrients but plenty of calories. But a liquor trade association said the findings indicate there's no big problem. "This research shows that the overwhelming majority of adults drink moderately," Lisa Hawkins, a spokeswoman for the Distilled Spirits Council, said in a statement. The CDC study is based on interviews with more than 11,000 U.S. adults from 2007 through 2010. Participants were asked extensive questions about what they ate and drank over the previous 24 hours. The study found: On any given day, about one-third of men and onefifth of women consumed calories from beer, wine or liquor. Averaged out to all adults, the average guy drinks 150 calories from alcohol each day, or the equivalent of a can of Budweiser. The average woman drinks about 50 calories, or roughly half a glass of wine. Men drink mostly beer. For women, there was no clear favorite among alcoholic beverages. There was no racial or ethnic difference in average calories consumed from alcoholic beverages. But there was an age difference, with younger adults putting more of it away. For reference, a 12-ounce can of regular Coca-Cola has 140 calories, slightly less than a same-sized can of regular Bud. A5-ounce glass of wine is around 100 calories. In September, New York City approved an unprecedented measure cracking down on giant sodas, those bigger than 16 ounces, or half a liter. It will take effect in March and bans sales of drinks that large at restaurants, cafeterias and concession stands. Should New York officials now start cracking down on tall-boy beers and monster margaritas? There are no plans for that, city health department officials said, adding in a statement that while studies show that sugary drinks are "a key driver of the obesity epidemic," alcohol is not. Health officials should think about enacting policies to limit alcoholic intake, but New York's focus on sodas is appropriate, said Margo Wootan, director of nutrition policy for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a public health advocacy group. "In New York City, it was smart to start with sugary drinks. Let's see how it goes and then think about next steps," she said. However, she lamented that the Obama administration is planning to exempt alcoholic beverages from proposed federal regulations requiring calorie labeling on restaurant menus. It could set up a confusing scenario in which, say, a raspberry iced tea may have a calorie count listed, while an alcohol-laden Long Island Iced Tea with more than four times as many calories doesn't. "It could give people the wrong idea," she said.But it's not contributing to obesityBy MIKE STOBBEAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTH

Filmmakers, directors and producers associated with many of the films will be on hand to discuss their creations and answer audience questions. Many of the films have won acclaim at international film festivals and they represent a wide range of styles from documentaries to dramas, thrillers to comedies. Tiger Eyes,Ž written and produced by best-selling author and Key West resident Judy Blume, will be shown on opening night, Nov. 30, with a 5:30 p.m. screening at the Tropic.

I tried to find a way to write stories to these beats,Ž Kearney says. The lead-off single, Hey Mama,Ž turned out to be a fresh take on an old story. Hey MamaŽ describes the first meeting between Kearney and his new wife at the Anthropologie store in Tennessee where she worked. After courting her for a few months, he steals her heart, and now its all over in the song. Oregon-born, Kearney made his name in 2004 with Bullett,Ž which was followed by other albums and touring with John Mayer and Sheryl Crow, among others. His music began showing up on 30 Rock,Ž Greys Anatomy,Ž The Hills,Ž Friday Night Lights,Ž Scrubs,Ž NCISŽ and other television shows. In addition, his songs were used in films such as Soul SurferŽ and Catch and Release.Ž During this period, he had four songs hit the Top 20 on the Adult Top 40 charts. Then Kearney moved to Nashville and worked with longtime collaborator Robert Marvin, whos worked on all of Kearneys albums. In 2011, Kearney signed with Universal Republic Records for the release of Young Love.Ž Theres a sense of joy, honesty, vulnerability, and wisdom in this record,Ž Kearney says. Ive experienced pain, but I still want to feel like that highschooler with butterflies in his stomach who loves life and has hope.Ž Of the process, the songwriter says he opened up like never before on this album.

Leaky faucet? Call! Tub tile cracked? Call! Here are nine repairs that every home owner should know how to do for a fraction of the cost of calling a pro. "Some projects might seem a little dirty, but a bar of soap is a lot less expensive than an hour of a handyman's time," says Daniel Vannoni, founder of the website ProperSee, which connects consumers with home repair information. Change a showerhead. Why: "Showerheads can clog with mineral deposits and sediments over time, and newer models have low-flow designs saving on your water consumption without sacrificing the strength of spray," Vannoni says. Tools: Crescent wrench or slip-joint pliers and Teflon tape. Time: Five to 15 minutes. More help: Home repair expert Barbara K of AOL's home improvement channel provides guidance in this video titled "How-To Change a Showerhead," on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch ?vfHBaTCKcYPU Tip: "Be gentle so you don't break the shower pipe," Vannoni says. Fix a running toilet. Why: It wastes water and has an annoying sound. This usually indicates that the flapper and sealing flange need a cleaning or replacement. Tools: Aflapper replacement kit from the hardware store. Time: Five to 15 minutes. More help: Check out Howcast's video "How to Fix a Running Toilet" on identifying and fixing your porcelain throne's issues: www.howcast.com/videos /112977-How-to-Fix-a -Running-Toilet Tip: Wash your hands afterward. Change a light fixture. Why: That wicker ceiling fan got you down? Want more wattage? Swapping out a light fixture can turn around a room. Tools: Wire tester, screwdriver, pliers, electrical tape and ladder. Time: 30 minutes, depending. More help: Buildipedia's YouTube video "How to Replace a Light Fixture" gives some safety and DIYtips: www.you tube.com/watch?vjRFKsn yidjA Tip: "Just make sure the circuit is off," Vannoni says. Stem a washing machine water supply hose leak. Why: The hose and washers need replacing. Tools: Adjustable locking pliers. Time: 20 to 30 minutes. More help: Let home repair guru Ron Hazelton shows you "How to Replace Washing Machine Hoses": www.ronhazelton.com/ti ps/how-to-remove-and -replace-washing -machine-water-supply -hoses Tips: Rick Johnson, owner of the Groton, Massachusetts, remodeling company Sky's the Limit, offers three tips: Replace old lines with a set of stainless steel braided lines, which are much more durable. Replace both hot and cold lines at the same time. And always disconnect the machine from the power supply before working. Fix cracked ceramic tiles. Tools: Safety glasses, hammer, chisel, grout saw, adhesive, new tile and grout. Time: One hour. More help: Home repair hunk Eric Stromer gives step-by-step instructions to "Replace a Broken Tile" on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch ?vWGWmuDCAkS8 Tip: "Remove the broken tile by gently working from the crack outward," Johnson says. "Do not use good tile edges as leverage to pry the broken one out." Keep the dishwasher door gasket/seal from leaking. Why: The rubber seal is worn down. Tools: Anew gasket (take the old one to your hardware store along with the dishwasher model number). Time: 10 to 15 minutes. More help: RepairClinic.com gives a quick "Door Gasket Replacement" demo: www.youtube.com ch?vQe-zNyP02Z8 Tip: Before replacing, first wipe down the gasket to make sure that food and mineral gook are not preventing a proper seal. Note that the seal may be located on the door or inside the machine. Soak new seal in warm water before replacing. Fix a leaky faucet. Why: Dripping plumbing wastes water, leads to stains and causes an annoying sound. Tools: Faucet repair kit, which should include any needed hardware, plus a wrench set and Philips screwdriver. Time: 20 minutes. More help: Lowe's shows you "How to Fix a Leaky Faucet With a Single-Handle Design": www.youtube.com/watch ?vA7e2bIfP8Us and "How to Fix a Leaky Faucet With a Two Handle Design.": http://www.youtube.com/ watch?voRls -2q4AHA&featurerelmfu Tip: Close the drain and drape a towel at the bottom of the sink or tub to prevent hardware from going down the drain. Regrout your tub. Why: It's important to remove old grout that's cracked or moldy to prevent deep-water damage in the wall and floor. Tools: Screwdriver for scraping as well as grout and a sponge.
