Story, 2A WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,JANUARY 9,2013 VOLUME 60,NO.3 25 CENTS Judge:No to pill-mill defenseAfederal magistrate has shot down two doctorsclaims that vindictive federal prosecutors accused them of killing patients in order to punish the doctors because they wouldnt accept plea deals.In a 15-page ruling, Magistrate William Matthewman has rejected long-standing assertions by Cynthia Cadet of Parkland and Joseph Castronuovo, from Ocean Reef in North Key Largo, that prosecutors trumped up charges that could send them to prison for life simply because they chose to exercise their constitutional right to prove their innocence at trial.Noting that the federal court system would collapse if prosecutors couldnt entice defendants to accept plea deals, Matthewman said he found no evidence that prosecutors retaliated against the two doctors. Both were swept up as part of an investigation into a massive pill-mill operation that sent 11 doctors and 19 others to prison.It is commonplace that a defendant can expect to get a more favorable sentence for a plea bargain than from proceeding to trial and losing; were it otherwise, few defendants would forgo their right to a trial, Matthewman wrote, quoting past court decisions.However, the doctors attorneys, who are urging U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra to reject Matthewmans recommendation, said this was no ordinary deal.The indictment charges that in exchange for thousands of dollars each week, physicians working with suspect clinics approved prescriptions for large amounts of painkillers regardless of the patientsmedical conditions.The indictment says Castronuovo contracted with Executive Pain, a West Palm Beach clinic, from December 2009 through February 2010.It accuses Castronuovo of causing the deaths of painkiller customers Tommy Wayne Harris and Michael Grant by prescribing a quantity of oxycodone ... outside the scope of professional practice and not for a legitimate medical purpose. Another South Florida doctor, Cynthia Cadet of Parkland, was charged in the same indictment with causing the deaths of seven people.From the start, Cadet, who was honorably discharged as a medical officer from the Air Force in 2002, made it clear she wouldnt plead guilty to any crime connected to her work at pain clinics operated by Wellington twins Jeff and Christopher George. Initially charged with four crimes that each carried a maximum sentence of 20 years, Cadet in July was charged with writing pre-Key Largos Castronuovo one of 2 doctors accused of causing deathsBy JANE MUSGRAVEPalm Beach PostIN THE COURTS Murphy taps Millerfor planning panelAs an ardent advocate for the Florida Keys environment, Ron Miller of Key Largo made frequent use of the public-comment microphone at Monroe County Planning Commission meetings.Now he gets his own microphone Jan. 30 when he takes a seat on the land-use panel.It wont be much of a change except that Ill be voting, Miller said. I was already coming to all the Planning Commission meetings anyway.County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy, representing the Upper KeysDistrict 5, tapped Miller to serve as her representative on the fivemember Planning Commission for the next four years.I wanted Ron for my appointment because hes probably one of the most knowledgeable people in the Upper Keys on land-use regulations and the countys comprehensive plan, Murphy said. Frankly, hes much more knowledgeable than this commissioner.Miller replaces Key Largo contractor Randy Wall, originally appointed by County Commissioner Murray Nelson and retained in the seat by Murphy.Its just time for a change, Murphy said. Ive known Randy for a long time and hes done a fabulous job.The other members of the Planning Commission are Denise Werling (District 1), Jeb Hale (2), Elizabeth Lustberg (3) and William Wyatt (4).Miller, 66, is a past president of the Island of Key Largo Federation of HomeownerShe cites his knowledge of land-use lawPLANNING COMMISSION ENVIRONMENT NEW TOP COP Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYTuesday was a big day for Rick Ramsay (right),who was sworn in as Monroe County sheriff.He had a lot of fans with him,including (from left) former sheriffs J.Allison DeFoor II,Rick Roth and his immediate predecessor,Bob Peryam.Several other local officials were also sworn in Tuesday.Story, 2A MILLER Photo by WAYNE GRAMMESGreg Caterino of Tavernier hoists the humpback grouper a Pacific Ocean species he speared off North Key Largo in late December.The discovery could warn of another exotic-species problem,fish experts say.New invasive found in AtlanticDeep-diving spearfishermen surfaced with a mystery Dec. 23 south of Pacific Reef Light off North Key Largo.I was shocked when I saw it, Wayne Grammes said. Its an ugly-looking fish with a face on it that looks like a tripletail and a tail like a jewfish.The 15-pound, 27-inch fish speared by Greg Caterino of Tavernier turned out to be a humpback grouper a species native not to Pacific Reef but to the tropical Pacific Ocean off Asia.This is the equivalent of a hunter in North America finding a zebra, said Grammes, who was fishing with Caterino.Weve seen the successful marine invasion of lionfish, Reef Environmental Education Foundation Project Director Lad Akins said Monday. We certainly do not want to see it happen again with another Pacific species.Akins, a renowned expert in fish identification, confirmed the speared fish was a humpback grouper. With an array of black spots, its also known as a panther grouper. This is not the first time these have been sighted in Florida, Akins said. There have been five or six reported as far back as the 1980s, but all from different parts of the state. The juveniles are really popular in the aquarium trade, Akins said.

According to U.S. Attorneys Office spokeswoman Alicia Valle, U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow couldnt be in Key West for Zeccas scheduled Friday arraignment. Judge Snows schedule changed and she will not be back in Key West until Jan. 14. Accordingly, both parties agreed to the change in date, Valle said. The arraignment is rescheduled for 2 p.m. Monday in the Sidney M. Aronovitz federal courthouse at 301 Simonton St. in Key West. Zecca faces a federal murder-for-hire charge after, the FBI and prosecutors say, he attempted to pay one of his Marathon Marina and Boatyard employees an FBI informant $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine to kill Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. Federal authorities have been mum about any motive but have said the alleged plot grew out of a 10-kilo cocaine deal Zecca reportedly was trying to set up. The feds say Schmitt had no role in that. According to the arrest affidavit, the informant was supposed to kill SchmittSet for Friday, its now Monday in Key WestBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTSee Zecca,3ASee Invasive,2ASee Pills,2A
scriptions for narcotics that caused the overdose deaths of seven patients.If you plea well give you a break, but if you dont well hammer you, her attorney, Michael Weinstein, said of the attitude of prosecutors.Castronuovo, who earned his medical degree from Georgetown University and was an assistant professor at New York University School of Medicine, got the same treatment after he backed out of a plea deal, said his attorney, Thomas Sclafani. Once facing a maximum five years in prison for mail fraud, the 73-year-old in July was charged with killing two patients. Unlike with Cadet, prosecutors initially showed little interest in Castronuovo, Sclafani said.During a hearing last January, prosecutors told Marra they intended to charge Castronuovo with a more serious crime than mail fraud. But, they said, he wouldnt be charged with causing any patient deaths. Those charges would be reserved for Cadet, they said. Those promises proved false when the new indictment was handed up in July, Sclafani said.If prosecutors are seeking justice for those who died, the new charges dont make sense, Sclafani said. Prosecutors said more than 50 people died of overdoses as a result of the George brothersoperation that drew people from as far as Tennessee and Kentucky. While a doctor was charged in state court with causing a patient death, none of the doctors who pleaded guilty to federal charges was accused of killing patients.Why then was the 72year-old Dr. Castronuovo singled out for such special treatment? According to the record in this case, and not the mere conjecture of the defense, the government sought to retaliate against him for standing his ground, Sclafani wrote in his rebuttal to Matthewmans recommendation.Without addressing some of the specific allegations Weinstein and Sclafani raised, Matthewman said judges shouldnt secondguess prosecutors.Whatever the governments motive in bringing the initial charge, it is not relevant to the matters at issue, he wrote. In our adversarial system of justice, the prosecutor has nearly limitless discretion in deciding whom to prosecute and what charges to bring.Sclafani said he expects Marra to decide whether to accept Matthewmans recommendation by early February. Cadet and Castronuovo are scheduled to be tried in June.Judge rejects argumentFrom Pills,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,January 9,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.8272 THURS.8173 FRI.8272 SAT.8172 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with isolated showers.

Formerly of Marathon, in the Florida Keys, he had been a Naples resident since 2003. Tony was born on November 8, 1942 in Welch, W Va, the son of Anthony and Ann Melfa. He spent his early years working in his parents beer garden in Cucumber, W VA and attended Greenbriar military academy. His family moved to Miami, FL and that was where he met his beloved wife, Maureen Melfa. They were married in 1964 and were blessed with two daughters, Cindy Emmerson and Sandy Forsyth. While in Miami, Tony worked as the Produce and Meat Department manager for Winn Dixie and then attended air-conditioning contractor school, with the goal to one day own his own business. In 1972, Tony moved his family down to Marathon to start his own air-conditioning business and pursue his passion for fishing. He retired from his successful business 30 years later and enjoyed living a Keys life with his wife and family. While in Marathon, Tony was an active member and officer in the B.P.O.E. "The Elks" fraternal organization, serving at the local, regional and state levels many times. In 2003, Tony and Maureen moved to Naples to be closer to their daughters, their families and enjoy more fishing and time on the golf course. During this time, his focus on family was expanded by the birth of two grandchildren and two more by marriage; he now considered being "Papa" his new career and simply loved his wife, daughters and grandchildren beyond measure. Tony left this earth surrounded by his family, and traveled peacefully to his new home. His life has not ended, it has just changed. He is survived by his wife, Maureen Melfa; daughters Cindy Emmerson and Sandy Forsyth; son-in-law, Craig "Skip" Forsyth; and grandchildren, Ashlynn and Anthony Forsyth, and Dennis and Dylan Emmerson; brother and sister-in-law, John and Shirley OBrien; aunts and uncles, Phyllis Spencer, Hilda Clfaldi, Paul and Dru Cifaldi; stepbrother, Garry Melfa; nieces and nephews, Monica Wurtz, John OBrien, and Michael Fernandez; and many cousins. The family would like to express their gratitude to his caregivers from Helping Hands and Vitas Hospice. Donations in his memory can be made to Vitas Hospice of Collier County. grow most privately owned saltwater tanks and cast a hungry eye on other tank fish. Just like lionfish, they are carnivores, Akins said.At 27 inches, the humpback grouper was nearly as large as they grow, Akins said. Caterino and Grammes, a Miami-Dade resident and frequent Keys diver, were searching a deep ledge about 95 feet down when they saw what appeared to be a black grouper. After it was taken, it was apparent that it was not something local, Grammes said. The humpback grouper bears a passing similarity to the marbled grouper, a native species that is considered rare. This could be only the tip of the iceberg, Grammes said. Who knows how many are down there? This was in an area where not many people go. Lionfish gained a foothold in the U.S. and Caribbean largely due to their prolific breeding and venomous spines that fend off predators. Humpback grouper could lack defenses needed to become established, Akins said, but we really dont know. Due to the possibility of mistaking a humpback for a protected native species, Akins said, people seeing one should report its location to REEF rather than harvest it. Is this the tip of iceberg?From Invasive,1AMan caught with speared lobsterATavernier man faces nearly three dozen conservation violations after he reportedly speared lobster just off Founders Park in Islamorada. Brandon Shelby, 24, was arrested after Deputy Nelson Sanchez, on marine patrol for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, seized 15 speared lobster, 14 of which were below the legal size limit. Sanchez said he asked two people sitting on a rock jetty near the park beach if he could see inside their ice chest. They agreed and Sanchez found speared lobster. The couple said a third person, Brandon Shelby, was in the water and had been catching the lobster, said information officer Becky Herrin.As Sanchez motored to the diver, Shelby reportedly dropped a pole spear and catch bag. Sanchez saw the items on the bottom and told Shelby to bring them up.Shelby was charged with counts including spearfishing in Upper Keys waters, possession of undersized sheepshead and undersized hogfish. The harvested lobster and fish were donated to the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center.ISLAMORADAKeynoter StaffN ew leade rs take officeTuesday was a big day of change in Monroe County, with a new sheriff, elections supervisor, state attorney and county clerk all sworn in to four-year terms. With lots of pageantry, Rick Ramsay became the top cop at the Monroe County Sheriffs Office after 25 years with the agency. He succeeds Bob Peryam, himself a lifelong Sheriffs Office staffer who decided not to seek re-election after one four-year term. Also in law enforcement, Catherine Vogel was sworn in as state attorney, replacing Dennis Ward, who served one term. This is a return for Vogel, who previously worked in the office under then-State Attorney Mark Kohl whom shes hired to manage day-to-day affairs.Longtime Public Defender Rosemary Enright also took the oath yet again.New in her job but hardly new to her agency is Joyce Griffin, who takes the reins of the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office from Harry Sawyer, who retired after leading Keys elections for 24 years. Griffin has worked Monroe County elections even longer, for 28 years. Amy Heavilin had been acting Monroe County clerk since November, when thenclerk Danny Kolhage with three decades of experience left office after being elected unopposed to the County Commission. But Tuesday, she was made official and happily lost the ad-interim at the end of her title. Also new is Scott Russell, who was sworn in as the countys property appraiser to replace Karl Borglum, who had replaced longtime Appraiser Ervin Higgs when Higgs retired mid-term in June 2011. And Dee Dee Henriquez took the oath to remain the countys tax collector for another four years after more than a decade in the post. Under state law, Tuesday was reserved for so-called constitutional officers. New or returning members of the County Commission and School Board were sworn in on Nov. 19, the second Tuesday after the election as prescribed by law. The Marathon City Council and Islamorada Village Council had their own swearing-in dates. The last person from the 2012 election season to take office will be Jill CranneyGage, who will be sworn into the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board on Jan. 23.Constitutional officers take their positionsMONROE COUNTYKeynoter StaffFor road race, problems persistChanges made for the 2013 staging of last weekends Ragnar Florida Keys Relay road race decreased highway traffic congestion but didnt erase it, say local law-enforcement officers.More than 500 teams of runners finished the third annual 199-mile run from Key Biscayne to Key West. No serious incidents were reported.Alot of adjustments were made since last year, said Capt. Gene Thompson, Lower Keys commander for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Give credit to the Ragnar organizers, they did everything we asked.However the sheer volume of runners and ,000-plus support vehicles did cause congestion again between Big Pine Key and Cudjoe Key, Thompson said.Areas of particular concern were on the Seven Mile Bridge, at a runner-exchange spot on Little Torch Key, and at another station at Sugarloaf School. Athletes in the Ragnar Relay take turns running legs of several miles each. Only one runner per team is on the road at a time.The feedback we received from officials on site is that things were much improved but not perfect, Ragnar Series co-founder Tanner Bell said Tuesday. There were some new challenges and we definitely will endeavor to make it better. We want to work with the community so we can come back.The race brought nearly 6,000 people to the Keys with a Saturday finish in Key West. The winners completed the course in just over 22 hours; the tail-end teams needed about 36 hours. It was a very busy weekend down here so [the relay] was not that disruptive, Key West spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. No teams were disqualified for violating rules intended to keep U.S. 1 traffic flowing. Thompson said although race support-vehicle drivers were told to keep moving, some slowed to encourage runners or provide water. That did occur, he said.The Sheriffs Office is talking to residents in the Lower Keys where most of the problems occurred to see how the race affected them.We realize this brings visitors to the Keys but our first concern is for our communitys safety and quality of life, Thompson said Monday. Were still getting responses but right now, the number of negative [comments] is higher than the positive.Runners and their supporters love running through a magical place like the Keys, Bell said. NBCs Today Show is expected to air a segment on a Ragnar Keys team later this week, he said. The Bone Island Triathlon, attracting about 1,000 athletes, will be staged Saturday in Key West and the Lower Keys. Only the bicycle competition should affect Lower Keys traffic, Thompson said.But officials say not as many as in the pastRAGNAR RELAYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
ARamrod Key woman was jailed Monday on seven felony fraud charges after a Monroe County Sheriffs Office investigation concluded she stole and used a former tenants food-stamp cards.Lilowtie Rampersaud, 57, originally from Guyana, admitted in December to getting the cards in the mail after the person who formerly lived at her home, William Denny, had moved to Fort Myers, according to arrest documents.Denny called Keys law enforcement from Fort Meyers after noticing his statement had charges on it that werent his. Rampersaud told deputies she found the cards corresponding personal identification number in Dennys old room and rang up about $250 in purchases at the Big Pine Key Winn-Dixie. Shes charged with six felony counts of fraud by using another persons identification without consent and one felony count of illegitimate use of a credit card. She said she did it because she was having financial difficulty, according to a report prepared by Dep. David Chavka.Associations, one of the most influential citizensgroups in the Upper Keys.State and local laws have protected the Keys, Miller said, but that has made it more attractive to people.Miller visibly demonstrated his concern in 2004 when he chained himself to the Jewfish Creek Bridge during the July 4 holiday to protest the planned widening of U.S. 1. He contended the design for the 18-Mile Stretch caused excessive damage to wetlands while failing to improve hurricane-evacuation times.After about 20 minutes, Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department members cut the chain. Miller was cited by the Florida Highway Patrol for obstructing traffic. Its not true that I was arrested. I received a notice to appear in court, Miller said Monday. I paid court costs and served communityservice time at the library. Nine years later, Miller said he would choose a different method of raising public awareness. Although he is well known as an activist, Millers appointment to the Planning Commission did not generate controversy. Not a soul voiced an objection, Murphy said. Miller grew up in North Carolina and became a history teacher after graduating from Augusta (Ga.) College. When his number came up in the Vietnam-era draft, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. Most of his four years in the service was spent at Homestead Air Force Base. Miller then joined the Miami-Dade Fire Department for a 28-year career, and owned a plant nursery in the Redlands for 17 years before Hurricane Andrew destroyed it. He bought his Key Largo canalfront home in 1997 and moved in permanently a year later. Our natural resources still been to be protected, Miller said. We cant count on Tallahassee or any other people to do it. No one else has the same concerns as people who live here.From speaker to deciderFrom Miller,1A Wednesday,January 9,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Clean ups Tree Trimming Weekly MonthlyISLANDSCAPING.NET305.587.8384SP 4144 SP 4145 SP 4146 LAWNMAINTENANCE D 13.99Lauders Scotch1.75 L12.99Kentucky Gentleman1.75 L10.99Skol VodkaOr Gin, 1.75 L19.99New Amsterdam VodkaOr Gin, 1.75 L28.99Johnnie Walker Red Label1.75 L29.99Appleton Estate VX Rum1.75 L18.99Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey750 ml24.99Russian Standard Vodka1.75 L33.99Ketel One VodkaSelected Varieties, 1.75 L15.99Cruzan RumSelected Varieties, 1.75 L17.99Clan MacGregor Scotch1.75 L31.99Wild Turkey 1011.75 L15.99The Kraken Black Spiced Rum750 ml13.99Windsor Canadian Whisky1.75 L35.99Crown Royal Special Reserve750 ml49.99Don Julio Aejo Tequila750 ml12.99Gilbeys Gin1.75 L 5.99Evan Williams Egg Nog750 ml (While Quantities Available.)D-Mia/Jax/Lakeland 4C-ThursdayPrices effective Thursday, January 10 through Wednesday, January 16, 2013.Liquor items are only available at Publix Liquors.

It was supposed to take place while Schmitt left a Christmas party. Zecca was arrested on Dec. 21 when the informant showed him a photo that purported to be a dead Schmitt lying in gravel in a pool of blood but was in fact a doctored photo. Agents moved in when Zecca told the informant he was going to get $5,000 of the $20,000 he was owed.Snow denied Zecca bond at a Dec. 28 hearing a hearing at which Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin Coats said the informant was offered a bribed and threatened by Zecca associates following Zeccas arrest. He also suggested that more people are involved, citing associates and co-conspirators in this offense.Coats said a search of his Zeccas house in the Indigo Reef development turned up a safe containing four handguns, four rifles, two shotguns, a large quantity of ammunition and $42,600 in cash, Snows detention order says. Zeccas wife, Mary, testified at the hearing that a second safe found empty was never used and that she planned to give it to a friend as a Christmas gift. She also claimed that Dennis used all the guns found for recreational hunting.Arraignment now MondayFrom Zecca,1A Hotline reports not forthcomingDennis Ward, whose last day as Monroe County state attorney came on Tuesday, immediately continued to go after public entities, this time as a private attorney.Ward, whose four years as the Keystop prosecutor was marked by his aggressive pursuit of public corruption, is helping Larry Murray, a former member of the districts Audit and Finance Committee, in his quest to get public records from the Monroe County School District that he says havent been forthcoming since October.Im going to go over there and see if I can talk to them before the meeting to see if we can resolve that without Larry having to file any litigation, Ward said before Tuesdays School Board meeting at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier. I know all those guys and I think theyre doing a good job. Ill see if I can pick it up a little bit. Murray wants the districts director of finance, Ken Gentile, to turn over records that grew out of a waste, fraud and abuse hotline the district launched in September 2011. Murray said he wanted Ward to come away Tuesday with a date certain when his requests would be filled. If he is unsuccessful, Murray said, it is my intention to retain him to file suit to compel them to produce the documents. After the launch of the phoneand Internet-based tip line, operated by Oregonbased EthicsPoint and which costs $5,000 annually to run, Gentile issued detailed tracking reports but those tapered off, then stopped. The system essentially assigns the tipster a password and user name allowing him or her to answer questions detailing the complaint. That information is then compiled and transmitted to Gentile.After its initial launch, one complaint prompted a criminal investigation into Key Largo School teacher Jose Zepeda, who was ultimately charged with battery on a 12year-old female student.Another confirmed complaint came from Gentiles wife Donna, who applied for a district staff position but said her application was intentionally not processed by the Human Resources Department. Last week, Gentile told the Keynoter : It has been difficult in keeping up with all of the reporting requirements in finance and other responsibilities. What was available was delivered. A detailed report will be run and delivered to the audit committee and Mr. Murray.Former state attorney joins Murrays effortBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSWork under way on new firehouseWith construction of Marathons Grassy Key fire station well under way, City Manager Roger Hernstadt says talk of another on the west end of Marathon is just that.We have a meeting a week from Thursday for the capital improvement plan and there are roughly 100 items on there. Thats just one of 100 items, he said. From the staffs point of view, they all have the same priority: Zero. After that meeting, theyll tell us what to prioritize. Community Services Director Debbie London said the Grassy Key building is progressing well. Its being built on a parcel the city purchased from the Jolly Roger Travel Park at mile marker 59 and will be the citys second firehouse; the other one is at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. The foundation is complete and slab construction will proceed over the next month, she said. Final completion is scheduled for July 20. That would be almost one year to the day the city approved a $1.6 million contract with Boynton Beachbased JMWConstruction Corp. to build the 5,000square-foot station. According to London, the building will include energy-efficient lighting, conservation of water and other environmentally friendly site features such as irrigation with gray water from the adjacent wastewater treatment plant. London said the shell of the building will be concrete, but utilize energy-efficient foam-block insulation. It will have a metal roof.City officials planned the Grassy Key station for years to improve coverage for residents on the eastern end of the city. It will likely improve the citys fire insurance rating and lower residentspremiums.Starting around 2009, the city and Monroe County held several meetings to discuss the possibility of a joint station serving Conch Key, Duck Key and Grassy Key.But perceived turf wars and accusations from several county officials that Marathon was looking to annex Duck Key eventually ended those talks.The City Council moved quickly after that, approving in August 2011 a hip, or sloped, roof design and directing architect William Horn to design a station capable of withstanding up to 150 mph winds.Environmental features are being built inBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCops: Woman stole food-stamp cardsShes facing 7 felonies in the caseRAMROD KEY Community Services Director Debbie London says the firehouse will rise from this ground by the end of July.Keynoter Staff CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551

EDITORIALFloridas uninsured remain at riskLETTERS TO THE EDITORNo threat to waterArecent article posted on www.KeysNet.com (Turkey Point nuclear plan could affect Keys water) contained inaccurate statements and left out some important details about Florida Power & Light Co.s plan to potentially bring two new nuclear units to the existing Turkey Point power plant site in Florida City. Here are some important facts that residents of South Florida and the Florida Keys should know about this project, called the Turkey Point Units 6 & 7 Project:This project would provide safe, clean, reliable electricity for an estimated 750,000 homes in South Florida while continuing our commitment to protecting and preserving the environment. The new Turkey Point Units 6 & 7 nuclear units would enable FPLto avoid about 250 million tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions and reduce annual fossil-fuel use by the equivalent of 25 million barrels of oil.The two state-of-the-art generating units would use reclaimed wastewater as their primary source of cooling water. The wastewater, which is currently disposed of in the ocean, would be provided by Miami-Dade County, treated further by FPLand would enable the county to achieve half of its goal for recycling treated wastewater with a single cost-effective project. Not only is this a huge environmental win, the project will save local taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.The backup source of cooling water, should the reclaimed water supply somehow become temporarily unavailable, is saltwater from underneath Biscayne Bay. The backup system uses radial collector wells that are specifically designed, and confirmed by extensive modeling, to have no adverse environmental impact. At the recommendation of South Florida Water Management District, use of the radial collector wells is expected to be restricted to less than 60 days in a 12month period, assuming theyre needed at all. FPLsupports the restriction and is confident the county will be able to provide all required wastewater on a daily basis. FPLis proud of its long-standing commitment and track record of protecting the environment, including our efforts to protect and grow the population of the once-endangered American crocodile at our Turkey Point facility. The Turkey Point Units 6 & 7 Project would continue that commitment and help bring additional safe, clean and reliable energy to South Florida while helping to solve the very costly problem of disposing of the countys wastewater. Steven D. Scroggs Senior director Project development FPL, MiamiGovernors trip to Washington D.C. pushes managed care agenda for Medicaid recipients in FloridaGov. Rick Scott met Monday with U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. He wanted to talk about delays in getting federal approval for Floridas plan to move most Medicaid beneficiaries into managed-care plans. Sebelius, no doubt, wanted to talk about Floridas plans to comply with the federal Affordable Care Act.Were sure the discussion was, as they say, vigorous.As backdrop for this, consider a few facts to set the stage:Florida has the third highest rate of uninsured residents in the country (only Texas and Arizona do worse by their people).Scott helped lead the Republican charge in Tallahassee opposing the Affordable Care Act before it passed.The governor strongly endorsed presidential candidate Mitt Romneys stand to repeal the sweeping health-care law if Romney won the White House. Well, Romney didnt. The Florida GOPlost to President Obama in the 2012 presidential election. And even the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the 2010 Affordable Care Act. All of which leaves Scott with a lot less clout in Washington, especially when it comes to issues like health care. What the governor wants is for all Florida Medicaid recipients to sign up with health maintenance organizations and other types of managed-care plans. Floridas system divides the state into 11 regions, with as few as two managed-care plans in rural areas and as many as 10 in populous South Florida. Medicaid recipients would be allowed to choose a plan, or would be assigned one by the state. These plans, generally administered by insurance companies, would collect a per-client stipend from the state and provide all care through a network of doctors, hospitals and other care providers. These for-profit plans would make even more profit if they treat clients for less cost. And that triggers concerns. The St. Petersburg Times reported in July 2011 that critics worry that managed-care companies will make money off the backs of the poor by simply skimping on services. Florida has also refused to create new insurance exchanges where the uninsured can shop for affordable coverage. Without some move in this upcoming legislative session, it appears the feds will create an exchange for Florida residents, which would go into effect in January 2014. With Florida continuing to drag its feet on affordable health care, it will be interesting to see how Scott manages his re-election message with Floridas elderly and those dependent on Medicare and Medicaid. The 2014 gubernatorial race is not that far away. And we know that seniors vote.FPL wants to add a pair of units to its Turkey Point nuclear power plant in Homestead.

David Foley Grassy KeyStudents need supportAfter reading Mr. Crockers letter to the editor on www.KeysNet.com and in the Keynoter challenging the accuracy of a submission about Monroe County schools by John Donnelly, I decided to go online and do my own analysis. The StateImpact is a research project funded by National Public Radio. In its newsletter of July 12, John OConnor wrote an article titled Schools a Big Reason Florida Falls in National Business Ranking. In this report it was affirmed that Florida ranked 42nd in education, according to the CNBC analysis. Thats down from No. 35 in 2011. This is precisely the ranking cited by Mr. Donnelly in his letter. President Obama and Sen. John McCain responded to a question asked by moderator Bob Schieffer on the night of their final 2008 presidential debate concerning the deteriorated state of public education. They both agreed that the schools were of such low quality when compared to their world counterparts that they pose a threat to national security. As stated in Mr. Crockers letter, his children are outstanding, accomplished students. Its apparent that Mr. Crockers children came from a home where their education was prioritized. However, there are many children who are not so lucky. They come from homes that lack the basic ingredients necessary for any type of academic success. Their parents are not interested in them, nor do they place an emphasis on education. Children from this category also attend school in Monroe County. I ask Mr. Crocker: Shall a child be made to suffer and denied an opportunity to learn because his or her parents are not interested in them? Principals are paid to be at their schools. Whether they like it or not, they are responsible for the success or failure of every student. Encouraging children with a positive comment as they begin their day, along with bidding them a fond farewell, is not some type of TVfarce as Crocker suggests. Mr. Donnelly is spot on with his data and ideas. Carolyn Thomas Key LargoMentor a childEvery day, mentors help young children face the challenges of growing into adulthood. Mentors can set a positive example with a child by sharing their time, knowledge and experience, and playing an essential role in preparing our youth for a bright future. President Obama has designated January 2013 as National Mentoring Month Mentors, backed by quality mentoring programs, play a powerful role in preventing substance abuse and youth violence, as well as boosting academic achievement and workforce readiness. Mentors help build young peoples character and confidence, expand their universe and help them navigate pathways to successful adulthood. Despite this proven impact, the gap between the number of mentors and the number of young people who need a mentor is still too large. There are numerous programs in Monroe County in which children can benefit from having a mentor. Please consider the gift of a great future to a child by becoming a mentor today. It will be an experience you will never forget. Daniel Dombroski Executive director Boys and Girls Clubs of the KeysThanks for donationsThe Personal Growth Center would like to thank all the participating businesses that donated to our silent auction this year. The silent auction was a great success and we were able to raise more than $750. The Personal Growth Center is a nonprofit clubhouse that provides rehabilitative services for people with mental illness in a consumer-run environment. Our countywide program provides classes, training and activities to its members to restore skills for independent living and effective life management and to assist the members in eliminating barriers created by their disability. On behalf of the members and staff of the Personal Growth Center, I would like to offer our most sincere gratitude for the generous donations to our silent auction. The funds raised will be spent on supplies, social and educational outings, and equipment to further advance the goals of the members of center.

The money comes from a special property tax raised in Bahama Village and reinvested in community and capital projects.There were seven applications for funding totaling $1,155,300, with about $850,000 available. The projects OKd Jan. 3 that will be sent to the commission for final consideration:$290,000 for a Petronia Street connectivity project, proposed by city staff with a focus on streetscape and signage meant to couple Bahama Village with adjacent Duval Street and the Truman Waterfront.$205,000 for Phase 2 restoration of the Cornish Memorial AME Zion Church, 702 Whitehead St. In the 2009 TIF cycle, Cornish received $417,000, largely for a new roof.$160,000 to begin design on an eventual rebuild of the Frederick Douglass Community Center, 111 Olivia St. The commission has already set aside $1 million to that end from money generated from an Old Town property sale to a hotel company.$72,000 to Habitat for Humanity of the Lower Keys and Key West for residential rehabilitation projects.$55,000 for interior improvements, plumbing and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance at the Coral City Elks Lodge, 1107 Whitehead St.$20,000 for a Bahama Village community garden on Fort Street, also brought by city staff. For the connectivity project, in 2010 the city undertook a full-scale redesign of Bahama Villages road system funded by state grants and resulting in a master plan. The TIF money for Petronia Street is just a small part of a grand design involving seven Bahama Village through streets. Karen Olson, special projects designer for the city, said, This project includes complete reconstruction ... top to bottom, providing a new roadway, brand new sidewalks, street furniture, lighting and signage. Also in the plans is an elevated intersection at Duval and Petronia to act as sort of a gateway to the Petronia Street business district. Olsen said the total construction cost is projected at $1.1 million. Other funding is being sought from additional grant sources, and Olsen said there will be further requests for TIF money.

Afaster foreclosures proposal that sparked consumer outcry and protest last year has resurfaced in a more moderate form, with a new bill filed in the state House last week by state Rep. Kathleen Passidomo (RNaples). The bill, HB 87, offers a slew of changes to the civil procedures governing foreclosures in Florida, where home repossessions are on the rise again. Most of the provisions are aimed at speeding up and cleaning up the foreclosure process, which currently takes more 600 days to run its course in Florida.We need to make the sure the process is as efficient as possible while at the same time giving the borrower their due process rights, Passidomo said. Unfortunately, if you dont have an income or you cant afford to pay anything, the property cant just sit in limbo forever.The bill which proposes strict paperwork requirements for lenders, fast-track foreclosure procedures and a shield against some thorny legal scenarios comes at a time when banks are beginning to rev up their foreclosure machines again after a two-year lull. Foreclosure filings in Florida jumped 20 percent in the last year, and the Sunshine State now has the nations highest foreclosure rate. And even though the housing market is improving, there are plenty of foreclosures still set to take place in the coming years. One in five mortgages in the state are delinquent, and more than half of those have not yet entered the foreclosure process, according to Lender Processing Services. Lenders spent two years cooling down their home repossession machines after news surfaced in 2010 that bank employees had been rapidly filling out foreclosure paperwork without properly reviewing it. The robo-signing scandal led to a landmark $25 billion national settlement between states and five major banks last year, clearing the way for a more streamlined foreclosure process. But nearly a year after the settlement was announced, foreclosures continue to slog slowly through the court system in Florida. Passidomos bill aims to speed things up. It requires mortgage lenders to certify that they have the correct paperwork proving they have the right to foreclose. The measure also gives condominium associations the ability to speed up the foreclosure process when a bank is moving too slowly. Condo associations have been forced to shoulder significant maintenance costs while banks carry out foreclosures. Banks have been accused of purposefully slowing down the process in order to limit their costs. For their part, banks get a bit of a gift in the bill as well. Currently, if a lender forecloses on a home and later is sued for doing so wrongfully, the lender can be forced to pay monetary damages only. That means the homeowner cant get his or her house back a proposition that could be especially difficult if the bank has sold the home to an unsuspecting third party. Passidomos bill would eliminate that awkward scenario, and free the bank from having to recoup a house it sold to another party after a faulty foreclosure. Some consumer advocates are already speaking out against the bill. Its the third attempt by lawmakers in the last three years to push for foreclosure reform and each has led to consumer outcry, including a march on the state Capitol last year. Might be a good time to start contacting your Florida state representatives in the state House and Senate on this issue, Lisa Epstein, a West Palm Beach foreclosure activist, wrote in an e-mail to her followers. The more Floridians who oppose this bill and the earlier they oppose it, the better. The bill sheds some of the controversial provisions of the 2012 proposal, which passed the Florida House but died in the Senate last year. Aprovision that would have allowed for faster foreclosures on homes that appear to be abandoned has been scrapped from the new bill. The apparently-abandoned property measure faced backlash from consumer advocates who said people would be thrown out of their homes without proper notice.The measure includes a provision that consumer activists supported last year to limit banksability to go after homeowners for additional debt after a foreclosure.Banks currently have five years to pursue a so-called deficiency judgment against a homeowner. The bill reduces that time-period to one year. The bill has far more borrower protections than what is current, said Passidomo.

City nears pier pitch to NavyKey Wests city attorney says hes close to telling the U.S. Navy why the city should continue to be able to lease its busiest cruise-ship berth from the Navy without having to go through a competitive bid process. On Nov. 1, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast in Jacksonville solicited pitches from possible lease-holders in advance of going out for a bid, prompting City Attorney Shawn Smith to tell the City Commission, I think we should have a very high sense of outrage. The current lease or the Outer Mole, agreed to in 2007 and expiring in June, gives the Navy 40 percent of cruise-ship disembarkation fees levied by the city. In 2011-12, the city grossed $2,393,299, meaning the Navys cut was more than $957,000. Im in the process of drafting a detailed letter to the Navy, Smith said Monday. Im research[ing] some issues to include in the correspondence. I hope to have something by the end of the week. He says the letter will include a history of the relationship between the city and Navy, and say why the city holding the lease benefits both. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the Outer Mole was included in an economic conveyance from the Navy to the city that includes what is now the citys Truman Waterfront. But following Sept. 11, 2001, the Navy pulled the Outer Mole off the table, citing national security, leaving 33 acres that comprise the Truman Waterfront, slated for development as a destination park. For the Outer Mole, any new lease term would be for no more than 20 years and granted in exchange for at least fair market value to be paid to the Navy in cash or in-kind services, according to the Navys solicitation. Public affairs officers with Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast said there have been three respondents so far. Under the existing lease, the Navys cut of the ship money goes into a city account that is used to maintain and improve infrastructure at the Outer Mole. For instance, last year the city approved an approximately $4 million contract to replace steel sheet piles and backfill voids, among other things, at the 800-foot pier.Outer Mole lease ending in summerBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,January 9,2013 What do you get when you mix the freshest seafoodKeyLargo has to offer,live local entertainment, fireworks,cooking demonstrations,pirate demonstrations, a costumecontest and more?COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS SHRIMP EATING CONTEST KEY LIME PIE EATING CONTEST ARTS & CRAFT VENDORS LITTLE MERMAID CONTEST KIDS PLAY AREA FACE PAINTERS BOAT DEALERS NASHVILLE MUSIC ARTISTS KIDS BAND STEEL DRUM BAND LOCAL LIVE MUSIC PIRATE DEMONSTRATIONS MAGIC SHOWS SHOPPING FIREWORKS ON SAT.

Holly Raschein said she wont be concerned if Gov. Rick Scott leaves a second $50 million state bond for Keys sewer construction out of his proposed fiscal year 2013-14 budget. Its obviously one of my No. 1 priorities. Its nice to have it in the governors budget, but its not the end of the world if its not in there, she said. Scott and fellow Cabinet members approved the first $50 million last fiscal year at a May 8 meeting at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon. But many people have heard that Scott will leave the second installment of the $200 million so-called Mayfield grant out of his preliminary spending plan. It was approved in 2009 following the death of one of its main sponsors, then-state Rep. Stan Mayfield.Scott Press Secretary Jackie Schutz declined comment on specifics of the budget.The governor is working on the budget and [it] will be released at the end [of this month or] start of next month, she said.Following her swearing-in in November, Raschein sought, and was granted, appointment to the Agriculture and Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee mainly to address Keys wastewater issues.I think [Scott] understands the necessity of the funding and why the Keys need it. I dont know what his staff is telling him but the Legislature crafts the final appropriation act, she said.Monroe County received $30 million of the first allocation for its Cudjoe Regional system, while the rest went to finance Islamoradas planned system. Local officials have agreed that Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District would each receive $20 million from the next $50 million to be awarded. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would receive $5 million, Key West $4 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million. Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt said hes unaware if Scott intends to leave the money out of his budget. He and city Finance Director Peter Rosasco traveled to Tallahassee on Nov. 1, along with Key Largo sewer district General Manager Margaret Blank, to meet with Scotts staff on the issue. We went up there and educated the governors staff as best we could. Last year, he was supportive, and so well wait and see how the process plays out, he said.Its a little puzzling. I think this has a very good chance of getting through the Legislature. His staff seemed very supportive. It seemed like they thought this was the right thing to do, but it doesnt look like it will be in the governors budget, Blank said.Should Scott leave it out of his proposed budget, the next $50 million would have to be approved by the state House and Senate and avoid Scotts veto pen. The first allocation was approved that way.Governor crafting his budgetBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCENTRAL SEWERSGarcia officially takes officeAt yet another swearingin event on Monday, U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia promised to reach across the aisle to solve problems and to protect public investments like his alma mater, Miami-Dade College. Among the newest members of Congress, Garcia was officially sworn in last week in Washington, but a similar ceremony was held Sunday at the San Carlos Institute in Key West and another one on Monday at Miami Dade Colleges Kendall campus for roughly 300 friends, family members and constituents in South Florida.Garcia, the first Democratic congressman of Hispanic descent in Florida, will represent the states newly drawn 26th Congressional District, which includes southwest Miami-Dade County and the Florida Keys. Garcia took the seat held by Republican David Rivera, whose tenure as a first-term congressman was marked by a series of scandals, including two federal investigations. With 54 percent of the vote, Garcia defeated Rivera, along with two other minor candidates, in November.Garcia will sit on the House Judiciary Committee, where he expects to be at the center of the debate over immigration. He also will sit on the Natural Resources Committee, which bodes well for the environmentally sensitive Keys. Bob Graham, a former Florida governor and senator, and former Florida Senate majority leader Alex Villalobos praised Garcia for his bipartisanship and his commitment to his community.Villalobos, a Republican, praised Garcias campaign tactics in particular. Rather than bashing the Republican Party, he said, Garcia focused on listening to his constituents. We agree on much more than we disagree, Villalobos said. Garcia said Washington needs leaders who come together to solve problems, and he looks forward to working with U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart, both of whom are Republicans.

Scott was out with a dislocated shoulder suffered while playing in a pickup game, something he shouldnt have been doing, said coach Anton Lopez. Valdez was ruled ineligible by the Florida High School Athletic Association because he is older than 19 years, 9 months (the school is appealing).And so the Conchs had to depend almost entirely on hard-driving guard Daniel Thompson, who scored half of the teams 86 weekend points.Against 10-5 McCarthy, the Conchs, sparked by two three-point shots by Donald Roberts, led 16-9 after the first quarter, then promptly got outscored, 19-6, in the second as the Mavericks walked off with a 28-22 halftime lead. Aleft-handed windmill dunk by Luis Acosta (which, naturally, got the biggest roar of the night) was Key Wests third-quarter highlight. The Mavericks had lengthened their lead to 46-35 by the end of the period. Athree-point shot by Roberts (later, his shots failed to climb over the rim) opened the fourth and cut the lead to eight points, but shortly after that, Acosta fouled out, and McCarthy switched to a slow-down offense.

He lost, 7-6, in the thirdplace final to Fort Myers Highs Abdia Corgelas, who had a takedown and an escape in the third period. Andrew Calderwood (145) came within a match from placing. Key West will wrestle at 10 this morning at the Westminster Christian Quad in Miami. It will be the Conchseighth of 10 regular-season tournaments, none of which, Jimenez said, mean anything in the big scheme of things. February, with its district, regional and state meets, is all that matters, he added.He goes 5-0 at Buzz Hill, is now 24-1By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST WRESTLINGPerez, Hill lead CanesTwo Coral Shores High School wrestlers scored topfive finishes at last weekends New Years Invitational Tournament in Miami. Chris Perez, a first-year wrestler, went 4-2 at Archbishop McCarthys tournament to take fourth overall in the 220-pound bracket.Chris was a surprise, said co-coach Joe Biondoletti, working with Hurricane head coach Tom Milkovich.Perez lost his opening match in the 18-man class but battled back with four straight match wins including two pins and a 2317 points duel before falling in the final round. Chris is really looking great for a first-year wrestler, Biondoletti said. I think we can get him to the state tournament.Sterling Hill, working to return to the state tournament, got a fifth-place finish at 195 at the McCarthy tournament.Hill, seeded third in the 16-man bracket, scored two pins before falling on points, 13-9, in the semifinals of the winnersbracket. That bumped him to the lower bracket, where he lost a 9-2 match before claiming an 8-1 decision in the match to decide fifth place.Jon Perotti (132), Rion Hunter (138) and Jon Mulkeen (160) also wrestled for Coral Shores, which placed 23rd out of 25 teams, at the tournament (won by Columbus). The Canes sent only five wrestlers to McCarthy since the contest started during the holiday break. We look forward to getting the whole team back together after the break and heading to Belen Jesuit on Saturday, Biondoletti said. The Canes do not have any home matches this season.

Pilchards or goggle eyes will increase your chances with the sails, but are a weak substitute for ballyhoo.Marathon and Lower Keys captains are finding enough sailfish to keep things interesting, coming back with one or two flags flying. The relatively low numbers are due to the lack of bait.However, Islamoradabased captains, as well as those with the fuel budgets to travel to the far-east waters, are typically getting four to eight sails per trip. Theres simply more bait there.The reef bite for yellowtail snapper remains excellent, with plenty of fish in all depths from the 30-foot shallows out to 70 and 80 feet. They average in the 15to 17-inch class, with the deeper areas producing the largest fish. There are still plenty of mutton snapper in the yellowtail slicks, so be ready, as theyre often eight pounds or better. King and cero mackerel are plentiful along the reef edge. It pays to have a live bait out with a trace of wire just in case one of these toothy critters passes through your slick. On the patch reefs and channel humps, the usual assortment of snappers and mackerel are providing great action. And the groupers are practically jumping in the boat, knowing they must be released until May 1 when the season reopens. Around the bridges and in the bay, the mangrove snapper bite is quite reliable. And theres enough Spanish mackerel in the 10to 12foot depths to make your arms cry uncle. If youre not familiar with the food value of the mackerel, they are delicious eaten fresh (never frozen) and are also excellent fare for the smoker. Mixed in with the Spanish are some kingfish. Its well worth the effort to put out a large live bait in hopes of catching one as they are often on the heavier end of the scale.The weeks bestCapt.

Frustrated by an inability to run offense against taller opponents this season, coach Kevin Freeman said hes turning to the run-and-gun style made famous by Loyola Marymount University. The Dolphins employed the new strategy for the first time Friday, a 63-41 loss to Class6AArchbishop McCarthy High School out of Fort Lauderdale.I think we were getting too stagnant and not playing with a good tempo, Freeman said. The object is to get up as many shots as you can, as quickly as possible, and instead of playing half-court man [defense], were upping the tempo and playing a trap as well. Despite the unsuccessful debut, Freeman said the players have taken to the new style of play. He said everyone is receiving playing time because of the constant uptempo nature of the game. We just missed shots. The first shot thats there, were taking. I thought we did a good job. There were a couple times where we could have pushed and didnt but thats things you work on. I think the kids like it, he said. Freeman said when players learn their role in the system, it will benefit the team in the long run. Theyve struggled to a 0-10 start. Its going to take a while, but were starting to get better cardio and get in shape to be able to run this. Its something I think were going to be doing for a long time, Freeman said.Patrick Ryan led the Dolphins with 11 points and five rebounds against Archbishop McCarthy.

The Key West High girls soccer team on Friday defeated Trinity Christian and tied the South Florida Heat to come out of the Westminster Academy tournament with a 1-1-1 record. The Conchs, who had lost to Pine Crest, 4-0, in the tourney opener last Thursday, came out strong against Trinity Christian (which had defeated Pine Crest late Thursday) and walked off with a 5-1 victory. We were fired up and ready to play, said coach Scott Paul. We needed to get mad and to play together. It was extremely physical. Libby Isherwood scored 17 minutes into the game and, later, Lauren Schoneck and Maudia Azard each scored two goals, Azards second coming off a corner kick by Adriana Garcia. It was like night and day from Thursday, said Paul, who praised the play of junior keeper Angela Martin. The Conchs then faced the South Florida Heat, taking a 1-0 lead on a tip shot by Isherwood. The Heat took advantage of a Key West defensive breakdown to tie the game with 15 minutes left. Key West played the second game without sweeper Selyne Casas, but Raquel Schoneck stepped in to that position and made two plays that saved goals. In Selyne and Raquel, we have two of the better sweepers in the state, Paul said. The Conchs who have never had a losing season under Paul improved to 11-9-1, and will conclude the regular season on the road this weekend, meeting Hollywood ChaminadeMadonna at 4 p.m. Friday and Ransom Everglades at 1 Saturday. into mistakes. It didnt happen, the Mavericks driving at every opportunity for layups. Weve got smart kids, said coach Mark Saxton. Key West got to within 50-44 on two Tony German free throws with four minutes left, but McCarthy answered with a pull-up jumper by Brady McBride. The Mavericksmatchup 32 zone then produced a steal and a transition layup by Marco Collie that put the game out of reach.They were well-disciplined and well-coached, Lopez said. I expected that.Thompson led the Conchs with 21 points and Roberts had 11. The Conchs missed their first nine free throws and were five for 16 for the game.Friday night, the Conchs never led against 12-3 Central, and were outscored, 14-7, in the fourth quarter.Key West will play a district game at Coral Shores at 7 p.m. Thursday, attempting to defeat the Hurricanes for the second time this season.Thompson gets 21From Conchs,1B dinner.

The Sutton family fished both the reef and the bay and got snappers, cobia, pompano, hogfish and Spanish mackerel. Don Rodgers caught five big muttons while dropping on some Atlantic wrecks.The Harvey group fished in the bay and brought back two cobia, mangroves and Spanish mackerel. They also released blacktip sharks and an African pompano. The Vollrath/Werner group took their limit of mangroves plus pompano and tons of Spanish mackerel from the bay. And the Markovich crew got their limit of yellowtail along with ceros and a huge yellowjack on the reef.Capt. Bob Brown of Sundance Sportfishing out of the 7 Mile Marina found sailfish for his clients. Vic Kulz, from Virginia, released a nice sail and kept several muttons up to 15 pounds. Vera and Jim, from Michigan, caught two sailfish, some dolphin for dinner and a 34-pound king on a half-day trip. Tim Wagner and his sons, from Ohio, caught a nice wahoo over 30 pounds, some blackfin tuna up to 17 pounds and fought a huge 70-pound amberjack for 30 minutes before releasing it after a quick photo. Drew Sparlin, a commercial salmon fisherman in Alaska, landed a sailfish plus dolphin and snapper while fishing with Capt. Mike Taute out of the Holiday Inn in Marathon. Sparlin was the guest of Marathon resident Larry Ferguson.Capt.

Twenty-seven? Thats all we had? Ill have to check the book, McDowell said, although the 62-27 nondistrict home loss to Archbishop McCarthy was certainly a reality. And McDowell, the firstyear-coach, was certainly displeased. Disgusted, not happy at all, he said. They played terrible.Coming off a three-week break may have had something to do with it we had two or three practices because everyone was away with their parents, McDowell said but the shooting, never a Key West strong point, was as bad as its been all season.The Conchs shot 20 percent from the field, with many of their attempts thrown up wildly. From the free throw line, it was even worse four of 22, with many of the shots not close to dropping in. Key West which also committed 20 turnovers never led. The Mavericks cruised to an 18-6 first-quarter lead, and, getting seven points from 6-foot-4 Hayley Duren, advanced to a 27-14 halftime advantage. Athree-point shot by Tanisha Multy at the outset of the third quarter cut the lead to 10, but the Conchs faded quickly after that. They were down, 44-25, after three, and scored two points in the fourth quarter. Jamica Mack led the Conchs with nine points; Ryann Appleby had eight, and Multy scored seven.She had a bad game, she has to deal with it, McDowell said of Multy, who, in her previous start, had tied a school record with 32 points against St. Brendan.The loss dropped the Conchs to 3-5 overall. They will take a 1-3 District 16-4A record and, said McDowell, hopefully more motivation into Fridays 5 p.m. game against Coral Shores at the Bobby Menendez Gym.Shooting accuracy is dismalBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GIRLS HOOPSPhoto by BERT BUDDEThe ConchsRyann Appleby dribbles toward the basket past Archbishop McCarthys Amber Amortegui during Saturday nights game.

Well, the folks at the Key West library want to give you even more insight into the man.The library is offering a free three-part program about Einstein and his contributions to science on Tuesday mornings in January. All programs are free and all are welcome. The doors open at 9:30 a.m. for coffee and social time and the programs run from 10 to 11 a.m. Leading them is Lawrence Halstead, a recently retired aerospace engineer.The first, on Jan. 15, will focus on predecessors and Einsteins early years. One cannot full understand what Einstein said without understanding what his predecessors established. Halstead will provide a brief history of physical science, starting with the ancients and leading up to Einsteins 1905 miracle year. On Jan. 22, the topic will be relativity. Although Einstein published most of his work long ago, the general public still largely misunderstands it. This session will provide that understanding in a straightforward manner. Mathematics will be infrequent and limited to simple arithmetic.On Jan. 29, Halstead will discuss quantum mechanics and Einsteins later years. Einstein almost single-handedly initiated the idea of quantum mechanics, but it quickly took a turn that he found to be fundamentally unacceptable. He worked the rest of his life attempting to reconcile the conflicting worlds of quantum mechanics and relativity.Pre-registration is not required. You can attend one or all three session. The library is at 700 Fleming St. For more information, call 292-2595.KEY WEST

Pursuant to that certain Declaration of Condominium of Windward Pointe, a Leasehold Condominium, recorded in Official Records Book 1803, Page 844, Public Records of Monroe County, Florida, and all amendments thereto (the "Declaration"), Obligor is liable for the payments of certain assessments, maintenance fees, and ad valorem property taxes (collectively, "Assessments, Fees and Taxes") and Windward Pointe Condominium Association of Key West, Inc., a not-for-profit Florida corporation (the "Association") has a lien for such Assessments, Fees and Taxes pursuant to the terms of the Declaration and applicable Florida law. The Obligor has failed to pay when due the Assessments, Fees, and Taxes as assessed or advanced and is thereby in default of the obligation to pay such amounts as and when due. Accordingly, the Association did cause a Claim of Lien to be recorded in the Public Records of Monroe, Florida, thereby perfecting the lien of Assessments, Fees, and Taxes pursuant to the Declaration and sections 721.16 and 192.37, Florida Statutes. See Exhibit "A" attached hereto for the recording information for each Claim of Lien, the amount secured by each Claim of Lien, and the per diem amount to account for the further accrual of the amounts secured by each Claim of Lien. IMPORTANT: If you fail to cure the default as set forth in this notice or take other appropriate action with regard to this foreclosure matter, you risk losing ownership of your timeshare interest through the trustee foreclosure procedure established in section 721.855, Florida Statutes. You may choose to sign and send to the trustee the enclosed objection form, exercising your right to object to the use of the trustee foreclosure procedure. Upon the trustees receipt of your signed objection form, the foreclosure of the lien with respect to the default specified in this notice shall be subject to the judicial foreclosure procedure only. You have the right to cure your default in the manner set forth in this notice at any time before the trustees sale of your timeshare interest. If you do not object to the use of the trustee foreclosure procedure, you will not be subject to a deficiency judgment even if the proceeds from the sale of your timeshare interest are insufficient to offset the amounts secured by the lien. You have a right to cure the default set forth herein by paying in full, on or before the 30th day after the date of this Notice, the following amounts: (1) all past due sums, (2) costs of collection (3) interest, as accrued to the date of payment, (4) per diem, as accrued to the date of payment, and (5) the foreclosure processing fee in the amount of $250, which amount will increase as the foreclosure proceeding progresses.
