This is wonderful news, a great cause for celebration, said underwater pioneer Sylvia Earle, who has completed three saturationdiving missions aboard Aquarius. Its like a space station underwater there in the Florida Keys. FIU, a state university in Miami, received a NOAA grant to maintain the 43-footlong metal structure, anchored to the ocean bottom 63 feet down. It appeared that the age of Aquarius reached its end when most funding for its research operations was dropped from the 2013 federal budget. The University of North Carolina-Wilmington, which operated the Aquarius with federal grants for nearly two decades, closed its land base on the Port Largo canal in Key Largo on Jan. 1. Now, FIU staff will seek additional money to undertake new multi-day missions.For our students and our marine sciences program, Aquarius offers fantastic new possibilities and is a natural fit for the work we are doing in the Keys and throughout the world, said Mike Heithaus, executive director of FIUs School of Environment, Arts and Society.FIU biology professor Jim Fourqurean, an aquanaut who took part in an Aquarius mission, will oversee the facilitys operations. Several core members of the Aquarius Research Base staff will join the FIU staff, including Otto Rutten, Roger Garcia and Thomas Potts, Heithaus said.

Segelson said she did not have specific information about the sizes or locations of the animals harvested, nor the names of hunters.More than 800 people from more than 30 states have registered to compete in the month-long challenge, which will award prize money for the most and largest pythons harvested.Were very excited there have been 11 Burmese pythons turned in so far, since we didnt have any expectations, Segelson said Monday afternoon.

Martinez would handle further proceedings.Zecca, co-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard and former commanding officer of Coast Guard Station Islamorada, was indicted Jan. 10 by a grand jury and charged with murder for hire, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon.The FBI and prosecutors allege Zecca attempted to pay a Marathon Marina and Boatyard employee an informant who is a convicted felon to kill prominent Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt but they have not said what the motive was.The arrangement apparently was made outside of a 10kilo cocaine deal Zecca reportedly was trying to set up with the informant. The feds say Schmitt had no role in that.The hit was supposed to take place while Schmitt left a Christmas party.Zecca, 51, was arrested Dec. 21 after the informant showed Zecca a doctored photo of Schmitt lying in a pool of blood and as Zecca was going to get $5,000 of the $20,000 payment for the hit.Asearch of Zeccas Indigo Reef condo in Marathon turned up a safe containing four handguns, four rifles, two shotguns, lots of ammunition and $42,600 in cash, the feds said.Schmitt, meanwhile, had been out of the country but returned briefly to tend to his real estate affairs.Not-guilty pleas are entered in murder for hireBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTTourist crashes, jumps from bridgeIf youre driving drunk, crash the car youre driving on the Seven Mile Bridge, flee the cops, crash the car again on the bridge, then jump from the bridge 60 feet down into the water, youre likely going to face charges.

The Sheriffs Office says that about 11:05 p.m. Monday, the agency put out an alert to watch for a reckless driver in a white Impala. Deputy Vince Weiner heard the call and saw the car about five minutes later traveling north on U.S. 1 at 23rd Street in Marathon.

Hes seeking a seventh consecutive twoyear term on the board this March.I had nothing to do with anything and everyone knows that. But Im not concerned about myself; Im concerned about my wife, Jeff Vorick said. According to the report, Lula Vorick stole approximately $8,180 from the Glunz Ocean Beach Club Resort located in Key Colony Beach. The report details an Oct. 9 e-mail to resort ownership in which she admits her theft and implies her husband was involved. The e-mail is in reference to a September trip she took to North Carolina. The e-mail states, according to the report: I am so ashamed. I used the company debit card on my trip with [my son] this past summer. I have no excuses except that I wanted [him] to have a fun trip. I also had Jeff sign a check for advance pay and I asked him to use the same debit card for the rental car.Jeff Vorick said he has no work connection to the Glunz Ocean Beach Club Report.Later in the report, Lula Vorick recants what she reportedly wrote in the email. She alludes to health issues that led to her being admitted to the Guidance Care Center in Marathon.My recollection of events during the summer and after Oct. 8 is not clear. I saw the email of Oct. 9 and do not recall writing it. My husband Jeff never signed any checks. He had nothing to do with a rental car except for setting it up and picking it up for me, Lula Vorick said.Jeff Vorick reiterated that he was not involved with his wifes work at the resort. She worked for them and we talked about general stuff but thats about it. Shes been accused of something that may or may not be true, he said. Contacted by the Keynoter Tuesday, a woman at the Ocean Beach Club said Lula Vorick was a longtime consultant that did bookkeeping for the current owners and former timeshare association. She declined to identify herself before ending the call.The Glunz family bought out the time-share in October 2011, and as of that July 6 the time-share ceased to exist, according to the woman.Vorick charged with theft from condoBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACH VORICK More charges for convictSandra Perez, a Stock Island woman on federally supervised release from jail, was jailed Monday on felony charges of stealing from her employer for the second time.She was last arrested in October after Steve Henson, owner of Key Iron Works, where Perez worked as a bookkeeper, discovered seven forged checks and fraudulent credit card charges on his bank statements. In the latest round, Perez is charged with 13 felonies, including grand theft and using another persons credit card. She remained in the Monroe County Detention Center on Tuesday in lieu of $80,000 bond. The theft totals around $300 to purchase fuel and groceries for her family, according to Monroe County Sheriffs Office Deputy David Chavka. Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson said Perez, 29, is essentially being charged with more counts because Henson had further reviewed his financial records and uncovered more transactions he didnt authorize. Its more of the same, Wilson said She didnt tell us about everything when she was being investigated prior to her first arrest. In 2010, Perez pleaded guilty to a federal tax-fraud charge and was sentenced to six months in jail followed by three years of supervised release, the terms of which would be violated by her latest arrests. The tax charge stemmed from a scam run out of the Monroe County Detention Center masterminded by Perezs father, Danilo Suarez. In it, jail inmates and their relatives filed with the Internal Revenue Service 1040 EZ forms along with a one-page 4852 form, which is a substitute for a W-2 when an employer doesnt provide one, on behalf of themselves. They would then cash the refund checks. Danilo Suarez got five years in prison.Perez accused of stealing from her bossBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONT PEREZCops: Student kills self with gunTheres no evidence to suggest bullying or hazing had a factor in the suicide of 14-year-old Key West High School student Matthew Logan Gilleran, says schools Superintendent Mark Porter.Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said Gilleran shot himself in the head with an older-model .22-caliber revolver on Friday. The call came in at 4:39 p.m. from 1309 Villa Mill Lane.Gilleran died Sunday morning at a Miami hospital.Details such as where Gilleran got the gun and who owns it are still being looked at. Porter acknowledged reports, spread largely over social media, indicating Gilleran was the subject of abuse by classmates.As to any hazing or bullying, Porter said, I am aware of speculation in this regard, but I am not aware of any supporting evidence. We continue to work with the family, with due respect to their privacy, in responding to this tragedy.Matthew Gilleran was the son of Jim Gilleran, owner of the 801 Bourbon Bar on Duval Street and a member of the Key West Planning Board. Porter said that counselors were on hand at Key West High School Monday to support grieving students and staff members.It is my understanding that the presence of additional counselors was appropriate and that they did spend a considerable amount of time working with students and staff throughout the day, he said.Agreat deal of credit goes to [Principal] Amber Bosco, her staff and fellow principals, who put together the resources they anticipated would be needed under such challenging circumstances. Gilleran was a member of the schools wrestling team and ROTC, and was planning to go out for track, Bosco said. He was described as very upbeat, she said of Gilleran. On the bullying speculation, Archer said: I have spoken to the family and out of respect to them, were trying to get away from discussing what might have been the motivation. The topic of bullying was raised although nothing specific. Theres a candlelight vigil planned for tonight on the Key West High School grounds beginning at 7 p.m. Theres also a memorial service planned for Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Key West Sailing Club off Palm Avenue.Matthew Gilleran is survived by his father and two brothers, James and Daniel. His mother Catherine died in 2009.The Monroe County School District was rocked by another suicide when Adri Stewart, the 30-yearold principal of the Key West Collegiate Academy and mother of three, shot herself in the head at a Broward County gun range the day after Christmas.Counselors called out to Key West HighBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTBPmoney deadline is TuesdayATuesday deadline looms for commercial fishing professionals to file claims for financial losses from the BP Deepwater Horizon spill. Aspecial Seafood Compensation Program created under the BPsettlement was approved by a federal administrator, with a Jan. 22 deadline for filing claims. The $2.3 billion set-aside for the fund covers seafoodrelated claims by commercial fishing vessel owners, captains and crew.If people feel like they have a valid claim, we encourage them to sit down with a professional to do it, said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association.While no oil from the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 apparently reached Keys waters, many fishermen retrieved gear from the water when experts said the spill was predicted to hit the Keys at any moment, Kelly said. Guys were out there feverishly getting traps out of the water. They lost harvest and days of work.Commercial bait fishermen also proved their sales plummeted because visiting anglers stayed away from Florida during the threat, he said.Claims can be filed through professionals or privately. Christina Vaeth, a Key Largo lawyer who works with commercial fishermen, said those seeking claims should be aware that separate claims can be made in different fisheries. Acaptain who owns his own boat may be able to file on behalf of himself and the boat, Vaeth said.For information on the commercial fishing program, go to www.deepwater horizoneconomicsettle ment.com .Charter fishermen are covered under a separate program.It is for commercial fishermenDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comFired firefighter gets job backAMonroe County Fire Department officer got his job back this week, more than a year after being fired for what his superiors considered a history of insubordinate behavior.Lt. John Hamburger, also the departments union president, was terminated on Dec. 7, 2011, after accusing a battalion chief in an e-mail of covering up the unauthorized removal of medical supplies from the countys air ambulance hangar in August 2010.Records released since the incident show that a flight medic took the supplies from the TraumaStar helicopter hangar while off duty to treat a local volunteer firefighter for a non-life-threatening illness. The department cited the email as the last straw in what Chief James Callahan and his battalion chiefs said was a pattern of insubordination.Amagistrate, John R. Lee, with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, ruled this week that Hamburger must be reinstated.Hamburger, 30, called Lees ruling bittersweet, because Lee also determined that Hamburger should have been punished with a oneyear suspension. Therefore, Hamburger is not entitled to back pay for the time he was out of work. Its a bittersweet victory, but a victory nonetheless, Hamburger said. Im happy to be back and excited to be reinstated. Im also looking forward to providing excellent service to the citizens of Monroe County. Hamburger was making almost $55,000 a year when he was fired. Asked if he would sue the county, Hamburger replied, I havent ruled anything out. I am keeping all my options open.The county has four open grievances filed against it by firefighters who lost their jobs, including another one from Hamburger filed as a class action regarding the hiring of an outside candidate for an open battalion chief position, Assistant County Attorney Cynthia Hall said. Also, two fired firefighters have pending cases against the county with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, according to Hall. Callahan said Lees decision is binding, and I will abide by the ruling.The state Department of Health acknowledged in October that it assigned an investigator to look into the 2010 TraumaStar incident. But the agent did not return several calls and e-mails from The Reporter asking about the investigation. Hall said she also tried several times without success to reach the investigator about the case.Gary Boswell, the departments deputy chief of operations, sent a statement to The Reporter in June acknowledging that flight medic Lt. Andrea Sutherland took the supplies from the helicopter ambulances hangar in Marathon, but he denied she violated the law or policy.Several firefighters familiar with the situation said when interviewed for a June story that the supplies were intravenous saline bags. Hamburger said that administering IVbags is considered advanced life support, and administering advanced life support for a non-emergency while off duty is considered practicing medicine without a license.ADepartment of Health spokeswoman, Andrea Keller, said in June that state law permits paramedics and emergency medical technicians to perform their services only while under the authority of a county medical director, meaning the emergency workers must be on duty.According to a duty log from that day Aug. 10, 2010 Sutherland left the hangar with the supplies at noon. Abattalion chief, Mark Thompson, returned the supplies the next day at 7 a.m. It is not clear if any of the supplies were used.Hamburger claimed cover-upBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comMONROE COUNTY Subscriptions 743-5551

The five-candidate ballot for Key Colony Beach City Commission in March was made official at noon Tuesday when a weeklong candidate qualifying period ended. All five three incumbents and two newcomers had announced their candidacies by December and the field hasnt changed since.But the timing of the election appears poor for longtime Commissioner Jeff Vorick, whos seeking his seventh consecutive two-year term.Voricks wife, Lula, was arrested Monday on a felony grand theft charge alleging she stole approximately $8,180 from the Glunz Ocean Beach Club Resort on Key Colony. She was an employee there, according to a Monroe County Sheriffs report.Jeff Vorick, 65, said he was not involved in the incident. The 13-year Key Colony resident has said he plans to work on grants to refurbish the citys wastewater system if re-elected. Mayor/Administrator Ron Sutton, 64, is seeking a fifth consecutive term. Hes been mayor and administrator the past five years. He also plans to work toward sewer system upgrades if elected. Jerry Ellis, 70, was appointed to the commission by its remaining four members when Commissioner Mary Schmidt resigned last March 22 for personal reasons. He was involved with various city advisory boards before being appointed. If retained in office, Ellis plans to upgrade city-owned lateral sewer connections in conjunction with residents sewer upgrades. Political first-timer Patrick Farritor, 63, has said he plans to bring a mature and intelligent point of view to the board if elected. Hes been a Middle Keys resident on and off since 1993. Graphic designer Ryan Schraffenberger, meanwhile, is more than 40 years younger than the average age of his opponents. The 25year-old has been a Key Colony resident for three years. Schraffenberger has been attending commission meetings for months and doesnt believe a typically older Key Colony population should consider his age a negative. He plans to focus on wastewater issues if elected. The election is March 12. The top three vote getters will be elected. the car, driven by Darosa, over at U.S. 1 and 22nd Street. Then Darosa took off southbound again and hit the Seven Mile Bridge doing 90 mph, where the speed limit at the entrance to the bridge is 35 mph. As I proceeded behind the vehicle, Weiner wrote, suddenly a large black cloud of smoke and debris appeared in the roadway.Driving through that, he saw Darosa, driving slower, approach the bridges hump, where he pulled over and got out of the Impala. Weiner pulled over, too, and wrote that he yelled show me your hands but Darosa just kept walking around the car until he purposely went head first over the concrete barrier into the water.Darosa started treading water, then started drifting into the bay, past the old Seven Mile Bridge.The U.S. Coast Guard and state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were called in for the search but Darosa was later found by Sheriffs Office marine officer Wilfredo Guerra. He was taken out the water and flown to Jackson for treatment.What Weiner and others didnt know at the time is that Darosa had already crashed on the bridge earlier, according to a witness from Big Pine Key.That person told Weiner he was driving behind Darosa southbound on the bridge when Darosas car, a rental, made contract with the barrier wall numerous times.Then around mile marker 46, the vehicle stopped while still on the bridge and conducted a three-point Uturn. [The witness] stopped his vehicle and watched as the driver partially exited the vehicle and [appeared] to look at the damage. Subsequently, the suspect vehicle driver proceeded back north, where he encountered Weiner. Darosas son told Weiner his father had been drinking all day while fishing. When hes returned to the Keys, the elder Darosa faces charges of reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, and resisting arrest. The Marathon City Council and city residents have a lot of projects to pick through and prioritize at a Thursday special meeting to discuss the citys five-year capital improvement plan. Thats 156, to be exact, according to a list compiled by City Manager Roger Hernstadt and city staff. Hernstadt said he doesnt expect the council or public to go through each item with a fine-toothed comb. I dont expect the public to come and opine on every project. Theyll speak for or against a project they see a need for, or feel is not a priority, and I guess theyll speak to timing, he said. Hernstadt pointed out the list is available on the city website and that most items are fairly self-evident as to what they are. If the public or council has questions, well answer those. But most people can understand the scope of the work and what would be accomplished if the project goes forward, he said. The list includes items from fiscal year 2012-13, which are included in this years budget, through fiscal year 2016-17. It also includes a column titled future, which lists projects such as a new City Hall that each council member has supported. Its listed at $5.5 million on the fiveyear plan. Its expected that a new City Hall and Public Works Department building (listed at $350,000) will be the main focus of the meeting. Other such future items include a possible Old Town fire station listed at $2.5 million, and a new rd Street Community Building at $5 million. There are also $2.5 million worth of proposed land acquisitions, as well as $1 million to remove whats left of the old Boot Key Bridge. Some future items are routine, including $400,000 to replace a fire truck and pumper, and $500,000 to install fire hydrants over the next five years. There are nearly 30 City of Marathon Marina upgrades proposed, though the majority are small-ticket items. The most expensive, listed under future, is a $700,000 addition of 20 slips. Thursdays meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.Ballot set in KCB for March electionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACHcially with the weather being warm. This contest has gotten so much attention. Were pleased we have been able to raise so much awareness about non-native species and their detrimental effects on the ecosystem.Three of the registered hunters are U.S. Coast Guard members station in Marathon: William Shane Smith, Jamie Hopkins and Kevin Jackman.They havent yet hit the swamps looking for snakes but plan to do so this weekend.Hunters are restricted to four state wildlife management areas; Everglades National Park is off-limits. They may use some firearms, as well as captive bolts and machetes to kill pythons. Native species may not be taken. In addition to Floridians, the Python Challenge drew residents from 31 other states. Theres a $1,500 prize for most pythons caught and a $1,000 prize for the largest. To date, the largest Burmese python taken in Florida measured just under 18 feet. Most tend to range from 8 to 12 feet.The hunt goes through Feb. 10.

For an airport the size of Marathons, FAAregulations require 240 feet between the centerlines of the runways and parallel taxiway. The distance now at Marathon is 200 feet.County Airports Director Peter Horton said the airport has had a longstanding waiver to continue operating, but that the FAAhas a push on to bring all airports up to the current standard. We dont believe that either the runway or taxiway needs to be moved. However, the current field configuration does not meet the current standards established in 1989, he said.In recent years, it appeared the FAAwould insist upon moving the runway at the Middle Keys airfield 40 feet to the north. Doing so would mean cutting out 40 feet of rare hardwood hammock along Aviation Boulevard.That road runs parallel to the airport and the hammock serves as a noise buffer for a large residential area.Horton described the alternative in a Dec. 10 e-mail to state Department of Transportation Aviation Coordinator Dionne Richardson. It involves decreasing the 50foot-wide taxiway adjacent to the runway to 35 feet and moving the centerline 40 feet toward U.S. 1.We will lose a few hangars and some commercial and [general aviation] ramp space, but it will be far less costly and [more] practical to do that. And most importantly, we can do that in phases and keep the runway open, he wrote. Horton said an environmental assessment related to the FAAs proposed changes has been going on at the airport for the last 10 years and is nearly complete. According to Horton, the FAAwould pay 90 percent of the cost of the project, with the state DOTand other entities picking up the rest.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONmission could be scheduled before the end of the year, Heithaus said. The last full mission took place last July. There was so much interest from the public and from around the world in keeping Aquarius going, Heithaus said. Its hard to beat a facility that provides a gateway to the ocean and provides training for astronauts. Earle said, We can do a lot [of undersea research] with robots and monitoring devices but we need people down there, too. There is no substitute for a human presence, she said. As staff begins work to make sure the Aquarius is in good shape, FIU will seek out other prospective sponsors and donors for a new business model to keep the research facility running. Aquarius is expensive to run, Heithaus said, but its a unique asset for the entire world. The Aquarius can house six aquanauts for oneto two-week missions, with up to six hours daily spent out working on the deep reef.

EDITORIALTime for Scott to invest wiselyLETTERS TO THE EDITORDRC supports soldiersOn Jan. 11, more than 75 soldiers and support staff from the Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride visited the Dolphin Research Center as part of the Charles Evans Day for the Wounded Warrior Project. While here, the soldiers enjoyed a delicious lunch and a fun-filled, exciting Dolphin Encounter swim with the dolphins. This has become a true community event. The Dolphin Research Center would like to salute the following businesses and individuals who made this such a heartwarming, welcoming day for Americas military heroes. We are grateful to the Charles Evans Foundation for its generous support that provides the dolphin swim experience. Many thanks to La Trattoria, Key West, for the lunch; Flowers by J&J, Marathon, for centerpieces to grace the tables; Captain Hooks Dive Shop, Marathon, for loaning wetsuits and life vests to the soldiers and helping them prepare; and the Calm Waters Spa at Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key, for providing towels. Also, Signs by Renee, Marathon, for the welcome banner; Dolphin Research Center board of directors Chair Celie Florence and Vice Chairman Stan Wattles; Custom Tails Jewelry, Key Largo, for the silver dolphin fluke pendants each participant received as a gift; and DRCs volunteers for the home-baked cookies, brownies and other treats. The men and women give so much of themselves in service to this country. We are deeply appreciative to everyone who worked with us to give something back to these soldiers on their recent visit to the Florida Keys. Rita Irwin President, CEO Dolphin Research Center Grassy KeyOn education, health care and Everglades restoration, governor must show leadershipWith South Floridas economy moving forward after five tough years, 2013 will prove crucial for our political and civic leaders to invest in our communitys future.At the state level, Gov. Rick Scott, who campaigned on jobs, jobs, jobs, enters his third year in office with an opportunity to show voters he can push the Legislature to make the wise investments Florida needs to prosper. That will mean investing in education, health and the natural environment protecting the Everglades and our lakes, rivers and sensitive lands.The governor has had a mixed record on education. He first proposed radical cuts to K-12 funding, then restored about two-thirds of the money last year and called that an investment. Sorry, the math doesnt add up to success. This year he has the opportunity not only to fully restore funding but home in on early childhood learning as a crucial part of his jobs program into the future.The first five years of a childs life are critical to that childs future and to societys safety. Without enough food and proper brain stimulation, children cant catch up to their healthy peers once they enter first grade. These are the children most at risk of ending up on the streets as teen criminals. All the evidence points to quality pre-K programs delivering results well into a childs future and saving taxpayersmoney in the long run. Scotts conservative roots place him in an ideal position to make the case that helping parents raise healthy children in those first crucial years is a win-win for families and taxpayers. As it is, almost a third of Floridas children start school unprepared, forcing more spending on remedial programs. The Affordable Care Act is the law, but Scott still resists having Florida take advantage of its key initiatives, whether its creating insurance exchanges for residents to shop for the best affordable care to broadening the number of working people and their children who would qualify for Medicaid at minimal cost to Florida. On this issue, Floridas business community must lead the governor to the right conclusion: that these early investments will pay off in a healthier workforce and stronger economy. Some progress has been made on funding for Everglades restoration, key to maintaining South Floridas water supply. But as South Florida counties and cities work to build or upgrading their sewer systems, they must also take into account the inevitability of our geography as a low-lying area. Sea level rise is real. Lets plan accordingly. Miami HeraldJosh Wetzel (left) and Steve Grill (right) get close with the dolphins with Dolphin Research Center staffer Catherine Dunn. Participants in the Soldier Ride greet a grateful public in Tavernier. Bye bye,Crane PointWeve just read your story, Zipline work under way. Visiting Crane Point Nature Center each year on our way to the Lower Keys has always been a great pleasure and the experience provided us with a real sense of grounding. It reminded us of the old days in the lives of folks who lived in the Keys. It was an experience that never got old to us. Azip line at Crane Point is anathema to that very idea. If wed wanted to go on a zip line, there are many to be had in various commercial settings; it is absolutely inappropriate at Crane Point. It is with great sadness that we have made our last visit to Crane Point. Jeanne DeMasi John Byra Mahwah, N.J.Park legallyRe: The letter to the editor from Julie Kokrda from Lincoln, Neb.: Julie is all upset because her husband got a $100 ticket for parking in a fire lane because they are tourists. On another shopping spree at Publix, she noted that the same deputy was on site and allowed us locals to park there without issue. Julies husband broke the law and got a ticket. To accuse the Sheriffs Office of only writing tickets to tourists is inaccurate and silly. Being local has never saved me from a ticket. Next visit, her husband should park in a designated parking spot and she wont have to write negative letters about our outstanding deputies.

Gov.Rick Scott first proposed radical cuts to K-12 funding,then restored about two-thirds of the money last year and called that an investment. District threatenedThe clock is ticking on a civil lawsuit facing the Monroe County School District if it doesnt comply with a public records request.Big Pine Key resident Larry Murray, a former member of the districts watchdog Audit and Finance Committee, wants the documents produced by district vendor EthicsPoint relating to the school systems waste, fraud and abuse hotline, set up in 2011.Last week on behalf of Murray, Dennis Ward, a former Monroe County state attorney now in private practice, spoke with district officials about the issue. That prompted Director of Finance Ken Gentile to send out a few disjointed pages tracking hotline complaints.Murray wasnt satisfied and said hes giving the district one more chance to come up with the original, vendorproduced documents or hell retain Ward to sue to compel the district to produce the records.Murray said the documents produced by Gentile, not EthicsPoint, are of amateurish quality. He specified exactly what hes looking for: What I would like to see are the individual reports prepared by EthicsPoint on EthicsPoint letterhead for each numbered complaint. They should exist, probably in electronic form. The phoneand Internetbased tip line 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. Oregon-based EthicsPoint charges $5,000 to host the system.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.Murrays request for complete records has lingered since October and he redoubled his efforts in December. Superintendent Mark Porter, who wasnt aware of the hotlines existence until told of Murrays requests, said generally public records compliance is a black and white process. I dont clearly understand why we havent been able to comport on this. Ward said for now, hes continuing to work with the districts attorney, Dirk Smits. I just think we need to push a little more and give these guys more opportunity to respond.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSCanals, pumps moving waterThe western portion of the C-111 Spreader Canal Project to move more fresh water toward Florida Bay officially went into service Friday. The $26 million series of canals and pumps will help restore freshwater flows to Florida Bay, preserve clean water in Everglades National Park and maintain flood control for nearby homes and farms, South Florida Water Management District staff said in a prepared statement. The eastern portion of the C-111 project which would be visible from the 18-Mile Stretch of U.S. 1 between Key Largo and Florida City remains to be built.We need to move forward with planning for Phase 2 of the C-111 Spreader Canal Project, said Kahlil Kettering, an analyst with the National Parks Conservation Association. Phase 2 will provide most of the envisioned benefits for restoring natural salinity patterns through Everglades wetlands and habitat for wildlife, ultimately revitalizing Florida Bay and Biscayne National Park, Kettering said.Finishing the C-111 western section is a great example of a project that meets the broader ecosystem restoration goals of getting the water right, and restoring natural habitats and species, Everglades National Park Superintendent Dan Kimball said.The new western system prevents fresh water from draining out of the national park. The western C-111 project includes two pump stations, 10 plugs or water-control structures, and barriers that can hold up to 1,200 acre-feet an acre-foot is a foot of water covering an acre of fresh water from rain. That retained water should flow south through Taylor Slough, helping to Florida Bay return to a more natural salinity level.

So far, from what Ive seen, theres lots to do, said Beaver, 33, of Holden Beach, N.C. The Carnival Breeze hadnt even left PortMiami yet on a recent Saturday, and already it buzzed with vacationers exploring all there was to do: Nosh on a Pig Patty from the new Guys Burger Bar, make friends with bartenders at the new RedFrog Pub or check out a novel and a glass of the grape at the new Library Bar. Aboard one of the largest ships in the biggest brand of the No. 1 cruise ship company in the world, there was little hint that the last year was one of the toughest in the 41year history of parent company Carnival Corp. & plc.Last year got off to a catastrophic start when Costa Concordia owned by Carnival unit Costa Cruises, struck rocks in Italian waters as the captain steered the ship on an unauthorized route. The massive liner listed to one side, and 32 people died in the chaos that followed.When you lose lives, its heartbreaking, said Carnival Corp. Vice Chairman and COO Howard Frank, who devoted much of his time last winter handling the aftermath with Costa leaders. And so I think in terms of our emotional reaction to it, its been the toughest year weve had. Carnival Corp. Chairman and CEO Micky Arison took criticism for not going to Italy following the wreck, but said he believes the company did the right thing and doesnt second-guess his actions. Financially, the company took a hit, starting with discounts that were necessary to drum up business after the accident. Costas future bookings plunged, but picked up after the operator slashed prices. As of mid-December, prices at Costa remained lower than they were a year earlier. As the company and broader industry focused anew on safety, the summer months presented a fresh set of problems when the European economy weakened just as cruise lines were stationing more ships in the Mediterranean. While North America was immune to those concerns, the run-up to the presidential election and the fiscal cliff debates prompted Carnival to worry about a slowdown in business at home. Last month, Carnival forecast 2013 earnings that were lower than expectations and said advance bookings for the year were behind what they were a year earlier at lower prices. Many analysts believe the projections were conservative, though, and executives said they were hopeful that January would bring more robust business.If we have some relative calm for some period of time, I see us fully recovering our yields in a matter of a few years, Arison said. Despite the downs in 2012, the company remained profitable, bringing in net income of $1.3 billion the lowest annual profit since 2003 on $15.4 billion in revenues. That followed the itinerary upheaval associated with the Arab Spring in 2011 and, of course, the recession in the United States that sent profits and revenues tumbling in 2009. Whats been strange in the cruise space is its been a longer recovery time from the recession than most of us would have thought originally to try to recapture those 2008 yields, said Sharon Zackfia, an analyst with William Blair & Co., a Chicago-based investment firm. There have been several years of difficult events that the cruise lines have had to digest: swine flu, more significant was the Arab Spring, last year Concordia Its just been almost two steps forward, one step back.But cruise giant still profitableBy HANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.comTOURISM

Islamorada is in the process of establishing a noise ordinance to deal with a growing number of complaints about loud outdoor music.But Village Council members are trying to be careful about what kind of legislation gets written. Abalance must be made, the five members say, between letting residents enjoy a quiet quality of life and long-established businesses being able to maintain their livelihoods.Village staff will write a draft ordinance and the Village Council will go through it, keeping some aspects of it and discarding others.Councilman Mike Forster lamented that the ordinance is necessary only because of a small number of businesses unduly annoying residential neighbors.Please conform or youre going to make us come up with something that is just going to affect everyone and everyones livelihood, Forster said at last Thursdays council meeting.Councilman David Purdo credited one business, the Hog Heaven Sports Bar & Grill at mile marker 85, with going out of its way to be a better neighbor. The bar is a popular place to hear live music, but nearby residents often complained about the noise. In response, the business owners installed Plexiglas plates and soundproof curtains around the establishment. Purdo said since then, the complaints have stopped. But Vice Mayor Ted Blackburn said such options may be harder for other bars and restaurants. He said so many Islamorada establishments feature live outdoor entertainment that he doesnt believe an ordinance will satisfy everyone. So I understand the reason why it should be, and I understand how it can be abusive also, he said. Drafting the ordinance is going to be difficult because defining acceptable noise levels can be subjective.Village Manager Ed Koconis described two options noise that is plainly audible from a certain distance from the venue, or using a decibel meter either from the musics point of origin or from a certain distance.Forster suggested that Koconis and his staff look at noise ordinances in other areas of the Keys. Alyson Crean, spokeswoman for the city of Key West, said the towns ordinance is complaint-driven. Police and code enforcement officers measure a business noise level by standing outside the premises with a decibel reader.

The owners side had electricity. The rentersside did not, he said. Geaneas said the building is a duplex but that its owners separated one side into two apartments. The fire began around 8 p.m. Saturday in the apartment of one of the renters. The owners were home and the tenant in the front half was home. The back half was at work. The back half was where it started, he said. Marathon Fire Chief John Johnson said firefighters put water on [the fire] in about four minutes.Upon arrival, one half of the duplex was fully involved. The fire was knocked down in 10 minutes. There were no injuries. No one was in the building, he said.According to Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin, deputies found the structure engulfed in flames. They first checked to make sure everyone had escaped the building unharmed. Three residents were home and had vacated the premises when it caught fire, she said.

The Hurricanes wouldnt get there against the Conchs 40-18 would be the final score although not for lack of effort.It didnt begin well for the green-and-gold-clad visitors. This way! This way! Jackie Boyles teammates alarmingly called out as she took the opening tip and headed toward the wrong basket. She quickly got the message.The Hurricanes missed all of their eight first-quarter shots and were down, 15-0, after the period. Brooklyn Erwin finally broke the drought when she swished two shots to begin the second period. But the Conchs scored the next 10 (four by Sahara Graft) to lead, 24-4, at the half. Wood in a black shirt, jeans and black pinkswooshed Nikes leaned forward in her folding chair and coached with a vigorous style.Stay with her, Brooklyn, stay with her! she shouted at one point, though mostly her advice was to get back! because the swift Conch guards Tanisha Multy and Mikayla Stansbury were beating the Hurricanes down the court for layups. Key West had lengthened its lead to 32-6 in the third quarter before the Hurricanes reeled off eight consecutive points five by the floppyhaired Jones, who banked one in from beyond the arc and then drove the right side for another basket. She also blocked a Stansbury shot (she had blocked a Multy attempt earlier), though Stansbury would return the favor in the fourth quarter. The fourth quarter was unforgettable, though both teams probably preferred to forget it. Coral Shores committed 12 turnovers, including one on a three-onnobody fast break. But the real lowlight was Key Wests shooting the Conchs made three of 27 shots, almost all of them from under or near the basket.For the game, Key West shot 26 percent from the field and the Hurricanes shot 21 percent. The teams combined to make two of 16 free throws.Multy led the Conchs (45) with 11 points and Graft and Stansbury each had eight. Ryann Appleby, Brooke Marsden and Kaneya Sargent each had three, and Inmyah Greer and Nicole Konhaeuser each added two.

But being able to go ahead and control the midfield was a change for us. Its one of the things we worked on. Bosque said A.J. Paterson has been a difference maker all year at the center midfielder position, allowing the Canes to move another player to the front line.We did that effectively when we got the last three goals, he said. Were scoring a lot more goals than in the past because we have that extra attacker.Pauchey scored two early goals Monday to give Coral Shores a 2-0 lead.

Here we are in mid-January without a decent cold front to stir up the fishing, although that may change later in the week with some cooler temperatures showing on the forecast.It also looks like the winds will shift away from the easterly, high-knot pattern that has reduced fishing options for all but those with the strongest stomachs. The past several days, fishing the shallower waters in Hawk Channel and around the bridges has been the most comfortable. These venues are very productive as long as you know where to go.Hawk Channel is holding all variety of snapper, the occasional hogfish, some really nice cero and Spanish mackerel and a few kingfish. As if they know its safe to take a hooked bait, lots of keeper-size grouper are being caught, only to be released as the season is closed until May 1.The main reef line is giving up its share of yellowtails along with some muttons. With the warm water temps producing April-like fishing conditions, the 40to 60-foot depths will put you in the strike zone.One very exciting fishery that has lit up recently is wahoo.The reef edge out to 300 feet is most productive, with live bait such as blue runners, speedos and even small cero mackerel the baits of choice. Rig as though fishing for kingfish and make sure you have a reel with a lot of line capacity, since some of these hoos push 70-plus pounds, although most are in the 30to 40-pound range.Back in the Gulf and Florida Bay, the mangrove snapper bite remains good with a few cobia, plenty of Spanish mackerel and some really big kings out there, too.The weeks bestNeal Loth from Venice, Fla., and his friends Gordon Hokkala and Dennis Blumke had a great day offshore aboard the Papa Pips with Capt. Bob Kidwell and mate Neil Apley out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. They brought in two 46-inch wahoo and a bunch of dolphin.The SeaSquared crew opted to fish in the bay and gulf for maximum angler comfort. The Horowitz and Davis families fished in Florida Bay and caught mangrove and yellowtail snapper, Spanish mackerel, hogfish and a sheepshead. The Smith/Corbett group had an awesome day in the Gulf. They caught mangroves and yellowtails, Spanish mackerel, a 20-pound cobia and a monster 60-pound king mackerel. They also released a bunch of three-foot blacktip sharks.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters at Turtle Kraals in Key West, spent most of the week in the yard painting his new boat, the Lucky Charm His crew managed to get offshore on Sunday and found a couple of dolphin in 260 feet of rough fiveto seven-foot seas. Mixed in were bonito, cero and king mackerel.Casting contestCapt. Spiders Casting for Charity returns Thursday to the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47 bayside in Marathon. The contest runs from 6 to 8 p.m. and will benefit the Marathon High School Marine Scholarship.Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/ bay, reef/wreck, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway Marathon. You can reach him at 743-5305, SeaSquared@ bellsouth.net and www.Sea SquaredCharters.com. Was this our best game? No, but we got the job done, Durkin said, adding the biggest thing was shutting the Falcons out for a second straight match. I dont want them to think they have any momentum heading into Tuesdays game.Outside of Spalten, the Dolphins are mostly healthy for the first time all season. Both De La Cruz and Konrath, who scored three of the Dolphinsfour goals Friday, are back for the playoff run.Just having a healthy team is going to be big for us heading into district, Durkin said.Konrath opened the scoring at the 4:42 mark on a header off a Regan Durkin free kick. She scored again at the 11:18 mark off a Savannah Rodamer crossing ball.Rodamer scored the third goal at the 39:55 mark off an assist from Savannah Schuhmacher, and Konrath notched a hat trick after converting a penalty kick at the 53:30 mark.Soccer Dolphins healthy againFrom Dolphins,1Banswered back with a Riley Durkin goal off a long through ball by Ariel Rodriguez.But the Canes put the game out of reach with three unanswered goals in the second half. Sean Anderson scored off a header to make it 3-1, and Pauchey followed with his third goal. Paterson scored on a long left-footed shot outside the 18-yard box to make it 5-1 with time winding down. Coral Shores (9-5-1) is scheduled to play its final regular game Friday at Keys Gate Charter at 4 p.m. The Canes then travel to host Ransom Everglades Tuesday to open District 16-3Atournament play.

We started the game with about five good chances and [Durkin] finally put one away at the 8:00 mark when he stole the ball from one of Palmers defenders at the 18yard line and placed a nice shot in the lower near corner, coach Jim Murphy said. After that goal, Palmer settled down in the back and didnt allow us as many opportunities. Marathon surrendered goals in the 16th, 25th, 36th, and 40th minutes to end the first half down 4-1. In the second half, we switched goalies and allowed them to take some great shots, but Seth Landry was able to make some great diving saves to give us any hope of staying in the game, Murphy said. Ricky Ceja scored off a throw-in from Connor Boyd at the 74th minute, but Palmer answered with its final goal a minute later. We missed some huge opportunities in the beginning of the game and had mental errors on many of their multiple goals. Palmer is one of the top teams we play every year and this year is no exception, Murphy said. The Dolphins honored their five seniors before the game Friday: Ceja, Rodriguez, Durkin, Boyd and Yoniel Esquirol.

Not many people remember the name Juan Terry Trippe.But Keys aviation history begins with Trippe, who got the first government contract to fly mail between the U.S. and Cuba. That Pan Am airmail service began Oct. 18, 1927, when a rented plane dubbed La Nina flew the 90 miles from Key West to Havana carrying mail between the two countries.Passenger service on Pan Am began Jan. 16, 1928, when Trippes fledgling airline began the first scheduled U.S. flagged commercial passenger service between the Southernmost City and Havana.Thats just one milestone in Keys aviation history, and preserving that legacy is part of the mission at the EAAAir Museum at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.Funded by the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1241 and donations from visitors, the museum operates out of rented space with one hangar and some adjoining space where a 1942era military DC-3 is open for tours. The bright green logo on the DC-3 declares its last commercial mission was ferrying passengers for Ozark Air, a regional carrier that operated in the Midwest.But the plane has an even more colorful history. Shortly after it came off the assembly line in 1942, the plane was assigned to the U.S. Navy and spent some time in Jacksonville. It was also assigned to duty with the Army Air Corps (later to become the U.S. Air Force). Some of the DC-3s built during World War II are still flying, mostly in South America, says Ed Waldorf, who heads the EAAchapters Young Eagles program in Marathon and helps volunteer at the museum. The DC-3 is on loan from the Prairie Aviation Museum of Bloomington, Ill. Its owned by a retired businessman who lives part of the year in the Keys. The plane has a colorful history in private service, including time spent carrying passengers for a wealthy Texas oilman, H.H. Coffield. Visitors to the museum can climb aboard the DC-3 and see the seat where Grace Kelly before she became Princess Grace of Monaco sat on a flight to Houston.Inside the hangar, visitors can climb aboard a Beechcraft Model 18, which was a twinengine workhorse deployed by the military to carry officers during World War II. The same model Beechcraft also was the first passenger plane flown by Philippines Airlines, Asias first and oldest airline.Avery Loucks, director of operations at the Marathon museum, said that model was favored because it could land and take off in some rugged conditions, and it could carry cargo as well as passengers. During World War II, it was known as the C-45.

He helped spark the idea of a museum at the airport a dozen years ago, Waldorf says. In the early days, it was mostly tucked away in a corner of the Marathon terminal, then space constraints reduced it to a few showcases.Then the EAApersuaded county airport managers to help find a more permanent home. The artifacts, memorabilia, books and two stillserviceable World War II-era planes have found their home at the north end of the field, next to Marathon General Aviations office and hangar (across U.S. 1 from Marathon city hall).The landing field at Florida Keys Marathon Airport also has a World War II connection.Belcher Oil built the strip for the Coast Guard in 1942 and 43. It was designed to be a reliever airport for planes in trouble flying from Miami-Fort Lauderdale to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Waldorf says. At that point in the war, military planes ferried cargo and troops from the U.S. to Brazil and then a transatlantic hop to Africa, he said. Theres a lot more history on display at the small museum, which operates from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily during season. Admission is free but donations are welcome.While youre there, be sure to have the kids try the flight simulator while adults can read about the history of Pan American World Airways, Trippe and the role the Florida Keys played in this countrys early aviation history.Theres also a rare photo of Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I flying ace who helped found Eastern Airlines in the 1930s. That had a Keys connection, too, merging Eastern Air Transport and Florida Airways.For more information about the air museum, call (305) 432-1145 or visit www .1241.eaachapter.org .Rickenbacker is highlightedFrom Aviation,3B Wednesday,January 16,2013 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com AIR CONDITIONING MARATHON A/C & APPLIANCESSales & Service Fast Reliable Service Lic # CAC017490 (305) 743-5051 ARTIC-TEMPResidential Commercial Marine Sales Repair Refrigeration Ice Machines Lic # CAC 053827. 743-5288 Danas Air ConditioningCommercial & Residential Ice Machines Pool Heaters Service Agreements Lic # CAC 056642 (305) 289-9498 www.danasairconditioning.com Windswept A/C & Appl.Shut Your Windows,Shut Your Doors You Ain't Gonna Be Hot No More!

And there will be plenty of beverages available for sale, including cold beer, wine, water and soda. Anyone with a sweet tooth will also find something to satisfy, with desserts featuring such things as Estellas famous flan, key lime tarts, and soft ice cream. Capt.

They involve themselves in cooperative research, operate in advisory capacities to state and federal fisheries agencies, and work with numerous nonprofit organizations to enhance our communities and quality of life in the Florida Keys.FKCFAworked with federal fisheries managers to avert a yellowtail snapper seasonal closure for the 2012 season and obtain an increase in quota for 2013 that will nearly double it and prevent future closures. In 2011-12 FKCFAwas instrumental in the development of 60 sites throughout the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary dedicated to the protection and preservation of Acropora (Elkhorn & Staghorn) and five other types of corals indigenous to the Florida Keys and listed by the federal government as threatened. Our members donated fresh Florida seafood for major fundraisers benefiting Habitat for Humanity of the Upper Keys and The Good Health Clinic enabling them to raise tens of thousands of dollars for their respective organizations. FKCFArepresented the majority in the industry opposing implementation of a controversial federal fisheries management plan called Catch Shares, thus preserving jobs in Monroe County and the Southeastern United States. We continue to assist The Marathon Turtle Hospital releasing rehabilitated turtles back into the wild, including an estimated 80-year-old loggerhead turtle named Betsy that lost a flipper to a rope entanglement. In cooperative testing with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, we have developed new and innovative designs on lobster traps that reduce trap movement by tides and storms up to 80 percent providing additional protection to corals and fragile sea grass beds. Working with Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) of Key Largo, we have assisted in data collection, geographical distribution studies and population dynamics on lionfish, one of the most troublesome of all invasive species ever to enter our fragile ecosystem.

FWC closes Keys waters for grouper harvestStarting Jan. 1, several species of grouper were closed to recreational and commercial harvest in Florida state waters of the Atlantic, including Monroe County. This seasonal closure includes gag, black, red, yellowmouth, yellowfin and tiger grouper; scamp; red hind; rock hind; coney; and graysby. State waters in the Atlantic are from shore to three nautical miles offshore. The harvest of these species of grouper in Atlantic state waters will remain closed through April 30, reopening May 1. The harvest closure was established to ensure the long-term sustainability of Atlantic grouper species, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC). Asimilar closure will also take effect in federal waters of the Atlantic. Grouper information, including Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic grouper regulations, is available online. Visit: MyFWC.com/Fishing and select Saltwater then Recreational Regulations and Grouper.Seasonal closure ends May 1 in state waters Trap theft loss estimates top $7 millionATavernier man faces nearly three dozen conservation violations after he reportedly speared lobster just off Founders Park in Islamorada. Brandon Shelby, 24, was arrested Jan. 8 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. Shelby was charged with multiple counts including spearfishing in Upper Keys waters, possession of undersized sheepshead and undersized hogfish. News of such arrests have been increasing in the past year as law enforcement, working closely with Keys commercial fishing interests, have taken steps to crack down on illegal fishing and trap robbers. Capt. Bill Kelley, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishing Association, said his members have been solidly behind an industry-sponsored crime watch program. That identifies problems areas and provides state and local law enforcement agencies with information they need to be most effective. In addition to tips, the association has also purchased specialized equipment to aid in the surveillance and recording of illegal harvest activity. Night-vision binoculars and infra-red camera equipment were purchased for use by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officers as well as by Monroe County Sheriffs department personnel. Kelly said the equipment has proven valuable in making cases where law enforcement can catch the thieves red handed, so to speak. You can actually see images of hands going into traps, he said. And judges in Monroe County have been especially tough on trap thieves and others who steal from commercial fishermen. In addition to jail time, trap thieves face confiscation of their boats, all their equipment, including vehicles. That should act as a deterrent, but there needs to be constant vigilance, Kelly said. Based on recent data, he estimated annual losses from trap robbers in the Keys at $7.2 million. Kelly has met with newly installed State Attorney Catherine Vogel to discuss penalties and enforcement efforts that have helped deter theft. Arecent federal arrest involving counterfeit lobster tags discovered during a routine inspection at Miami International Airport shows the problem is larger than just the Keys, Kelly said. Acompany in Colombia, South America was making the tags, Kelly said, adding that federal law enforcement expects other arrests to follow. FWC Officer Jorge Pino, an agency spokesman, told The Keynoter that to an untrained eye, they might have looked like real tags, but our inspector immediately identified the tags as counterfeit. Not to mention, they were coming into Florida from Colombia. Putting what could have been a large number of illegal traps in the water has the potential to do a lot of damage, Pino said. 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.Industry has active crime watch programNight-vision binoculars enable law enforcement to better monitor boats and crews on the water.Keynoter StaffIndustry crime watchAnyone with any information regarding the illegal harvest of spiny lobster by any means is encouraged to call Bill Kelly at anytime at 305-619-0039,or e-mail him at FKCFA1@hotmail.com to report observations.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers answers to these frequently asked questions: 1) What is the difference between commercial food fish and tropical marine life? Commercial food fish are fish that you eat, like grouper, snapper, and flounder. In addition to providing food, commercial food fish and invertebrates are used for bait and other purposes. For example, horseshoe crab blood can be used for medical purposes and sponges can be used for cleaning. Marine life or tropical ornamentals are species that are used in the aquarium or souvenir trade, like seahorses, anemones, and angelfish. 2) What are the requirements to sell my catch? To sell your catch in Florida, you must have a valid Saltwater Products License (SPL). You may also need endorsements to the SPLfor certain species and use of certain gear types. Federal commercial fishing permits may be necessary as well. Additional state and federal requirements must be met if you harvest certain species. Information about federal permits can be found at the National Marine Fisheries Service Web site: http://sero .nmfs.noaa.gov .Visit Licenses & Permits to download appropriate state forms or fill out an online submission form for a Saltwater Products License.3) Where can I sell my catch?In Florida, you can sell your catch to wholesale dealers licensed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Wholesale dealers may need corresponding federal dealer permits to purchase certain species in certain areas. Only sales to wholesale dealers count toward the Restricted Species Endorsement.All transactions must be reported to the FWC on marine fisheries trip tickets. For more information on licensing, please visit the FWCs Licenses and Permits section. 4) What is a trip ticket? Amarine fisheries trip ticket, designed to capture catch and market information from a dealer dock or weigh-out receipt, is used to record the required catch and effort information for each commercial fishing trip. 5) How many commercial fishers are there in Florida?In the 2006-2007 license year, 11,225 commercial saltwater licenses were issued. Of those, the 5270 commercial fishers who held 6513 commercial Saltwater Products Licenses were responsible for all landings of commercial fishery products.6) How can I correct trip ticket data that has already been reported to the FWC? Report the correction in writing, and attach the appropriate documentation. Required documentation may include copies of dealer weigh-out sheets, the fishers copy of the trip ticket, and the dealers notification of the correction. In special circumstances, an audit may be required. For more information, please contact the trip ticket office at (727) 896-8626. 7) Where would I find rules and regulations?Visit the Saltwater Fishing Regulations section (at www .MyFWC.com ) for information regarding rules and regulations regarding Floridas commercial and recreationalTo sell fish commercially in Florida Conservation focus on reefs, fish stocksThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) invests time, labor and other resources in support of conservation.Heres a brief summary of the states saltwater conservation programs:Catch and ReleaseManagers of Floridas fisheries use a combination of traditional measures to control harvests and protect fish stocks. These measures include bag limits; minimum and maximum sizes; closed seasons and areas; and in some cases, no harvest is allowed unless a special permit is purchased. Bag limits reduce the number of fish that are harvested and allocate the catch over time so that the years total harvest is not taken in one season.Coral ReefsCoral reefs can be described as the rain forests of the sea. One census found 3,467 species of algae, plants, and animals associated with coral reefs. Protection and wise use of Floridas coral reef habitat is our primary concern. The long-term Coral Monitoring Project (CRMP) is the most comprehensive coral assessment program ever established in the Florida Keys.Fish HandlingFloridas anglers should be proud of their conservation efforts. They have helped to restore or sustain valuable fisheries, including snook, red drum and spotted seatrout. As the number of anglers continues to grow and our coastal habitats come under increasing stress, it becomes more important than ever to release those fish that cannot be harvested in as good a condition as possible. The next angler will thank you for it.MonofilamentEvery day, improperly discarded monofilament fishing line causes devastating problems for marine life and the environment. Marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and birds become injured from entanglements, or might ingest the line, often dying as a result. Human divers and swimmers are also at risk from entanglements and the line can also damage boat propellers.GrouperGoliath grouper are a prohibited species; therefore the species receives greater protection to ensure its continued health, which makes proper catch and release techniques all the more important.Artificial ReefsAn artificial reef may be described as one or more objects of natural or human origin deployed purposefully on the seafloor to influence physical, biological, or socioeconomic processes related to living marine organisms. The more than 2,400 carefully planned artificial reefs constructed in state and adjacent federal waters off both Florida coasts have been built to provide recreational fishing and diving enhancement, a socio-economic benefit to adjacent coastal communities, and to increase structural habitat for reef associated or reef dependent fishes and invertebrates.SeagrassesConservation and restoration of seagrass is the primary focus of program staff in aquatic vegetation. Seagrass research helps supply resource managers with the data necessary to make effective decisions about the preservation, management, and restoration of these communities.RestorationDo you: Buy fishing gear? Fuel up your boat? Purchase a fishing license? Every time you do these things, you are helping to improve your fishing experience. You are among the many anglers and boaters who support the Sport Fish Restoration Program. This national program, managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), collects money from excise taxes on fishing equipment, import duties on fishing equipment and boats, taxes on motorboat and small-engine fuels. The revenue collected is used to create future fishing and boating opportunities.
