Story, 3APhoto by ANDY NEWMANFIRM unveiling study plansIts not often you hear the head of an organization say its main goal is to no longer exist.But thats what Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe President Heather Carruthers says shes hopes a planned $485,000 windstorm insurance rate study will result in.I think all of us are looking to this analysis as the first step in us not having to be here anymore, she said. Thats why were so eager to get the results of the study.The grassroots nonprofit convinced Citizens Property Insurance Corp. to fund the three-pronged study that they hope will keep Keys windstorm rates manageable for the long haul.Carruthers said its likely that separate companies would perform different aspects of the study. Citizens is footing the bill while FIRM is overseeing the work.FIRM is holding three annual membership meetings this month to give the public specifics of what the study will entail and the mechanics of getting it done and inviting the public to help.The first is scheduled for today at the Marathon Government Center near mile marker 48.5 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. The others are Feb. 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center, mile marker 102 bayside; and Feb. 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue in Key West.The meetings will also be aired on Monroe County Comcast Channel 76.The three main components of the study would be the vulnerability of Keys buildings to wind damage, historical and projected stormsurge damage, and natural catastrophe analysis using data from the first two studies.Grassroots watchdog group hosts three public meetings starting todayBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWINDSTORM INSURANCE LAST OF THE WRECKS? Zecca gets extension fortrialMarathon resident Dennis Zecca will wait at least another 90 days before standing trial on four federal charges that could land him in prison for life.William Aaron, Zeccas Miami-based attorney, requested the continuance on Jan. 30. Zeccas two-week trial period was scheduled to begin on Feb. 25 in Key West.Zecca, co-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard and a former U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada commander, was arrested Dec. 21 for what federal authorities say was an unsuccessful attempt to pay $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine for the murder of Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. Zecca faces federal charges of murder for hire, conspiracy to possess and attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon. In his unopposed motion for first continuance, Aaron cites the seriousness of the case, difficulty communicating with Zecca and a heavy outside caseload as reasons for the extension.Attorney cites his caseload, communicationBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTStill no answer on hotline issueRecent scrutiny of the Monroe County School Districts waste, fraud and abuse hotline and Ken Gentile, the staff member who put it together, has revealed a system that, at best, functions poorly and is set up to ensure complaints against Gentile are not seen by his bosses. Gentile, formerly the chief internal auditor and now the director of finance, rolled out the anonymous hotline system in September 2011. Complaints, more than 70, were logged but rarely investigated. When he unveiled the system, run by vendor EthicsPoint for $5,000 per year, Gentile assured the School Board, its Audit and Finance Committee and the media that complaints naming him would be channeled to the superintendent or board chairman. Instead, they went to Amy Reno, a part-time assistant interning with the district through Florida Keys Community College. She wasnt even working anymore when the hotline went active. Gentile hasnt offered any reason for why Reno was involved even though on April 21, 2011, he set her up as an EthicsPoint user, according to district e-mails obtained through a public records request. Initially, Gentile said, The reports should have been channeled to the board chairman. This was an instruction given to the vendor. I am investigating with the vendor why this was not accomplished. Asked how his investigation was progressing, last week Gentile said: The contact at EthicsPoint went on vacation. He was going to look into why this happened.

The health of our economy is tied to the health of our oceans. They are not mutually exclusive.Holly Bamford, assistant NOAAadministrator for the National Ocean Service, said, The findings in this report are good news for NOAAmanagement efforts to enhance fisheries and other natural resources in the Florida Keys. Information from the report can be applied elsewhere, Bamford said.

The motion also states Assistant U.S. attorneys Benjamin Coats and Robert Luck advised they have no objection to the granting of this motion for continuance.The cocaine counts Zecca faces stem from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation out of which the alleged plot to kill Schmitt was hatched. Federal authorities say Schmitt was not involved in the drug case, but havent disclosed what motive Zecca would have to kill him.The person Zecca allegedly recruited for the hit an employee of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard turned out to be a federal informant.On Jan. 10, a federal grand jury handed down the fourcount indictment against Zecca. The gun count stems from Zecca giving the informant a convicted felon a 9mm Beretta to carry out Schmitts killing.Zecca pleaded not guilty on Jan. 14 and is being held without bond at the Monroe County Detention Center.Zecca wants a continuanceFrom Zecca,1AReserves were established in the relatively pristine waters of the Dry Tortugas to protect complete marine ecosystems rather than specifically trying to safeguard corals or fish.

The 65-year-old died at her home, surrounded by loved ones, after a two-year battle with cancer.She was a real keeper, that one, longtime partner and Exit co-owner Morgan Hill said. She lived a great life.Nardone was in the real estate business for 46 years, earning a license at age 19 in her native Massachusetts. She also earned a business degree from Northeastern University and worked for a time at General Motors and a lodge in South Yarmouth, Mass.Hill said she and Nardone were acquainted when Nardone spent her winters in Marathon visiting her father. Convincing her to stay fulltime was apparently not a lengthy discussion.She said, I hate this time of year it was May. She said, Thats when I always go back to Massachusetts.I said, Well, then dont go,and she never left, Hill recalled.Nardone moved full-time to the Keys in 1988, and she and Hill formed a formidable real estate tandem working for Century 21. They often attained the Centurion award, Century 21s highest performance honor.In 2000, Hill and Nardone branched out on their own, opening their Exit Realty office in Marathon. They have locations on Big Pine Key and Cudjoe Key, as well, and employ roughly 20 agents.Century 21 was trying to give us a franchise. We bought Exit instead because we were impressed with their formula. They take better care of their agents, Hill said.Hill said the pair worked well, as Nardone was fond of the administrative aspect and Hill of selling properties. Nardone was working fulltime until recently. She worked five days a week until two weeks ago, Hill said. When she made up her mind to go, she went. Nardone was active in the Middle Keys raising money for different charities. She served as president of Marathon in Action, which began as a grassroots effort to raise money for a local family years ago.Marathon Mayor Mike Cinque was a longtime friend of Nardone. He said she never hesitated to give time or money to charitable efforts.Shes one of the nicest, sweetest, most honest people I knew. She was dedicated to her friends and family and community. You cant ask for much more than that, he said.Acelebration of life is planned for Sunday at the Key Colony Inn in Key Colony Beach at 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Visiting Nurse Association/Hospice of the Florida Keys at 1319 William St. in Key West.The longtime Realtor dies from cancerBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON NARDONESchmitt: I did nothing wrongNamed in a federal civil lawsuit seeking $53 million from the failure of Orion Bank, Brian Schmitt of Marathon says he expects to be absolved in this very unfortunate situation.Schmitt, a longtime Keys real-estate professional, was named along with retired Marathon contractor James Aultman Jr. in a civil suit lodged in U.S. District Court on Jan. 29 by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.By personally approving loans after only grossly and obviously inadequate review, and despite obvious underwriting deficiencies ... the defendants exhibited a lack of care ... reaching gross negligence, says the FDIC lawsuit.Schmitt and Aultman were directors of Orion Bank and served on its board loan committee. Two other directors and loancommittee members, Alan Pratt of Vero Beach and Earl Holland of Fort Myers, also are named as defendants. There is no factual basis to their claim and I can prove that, Schmitt said Tuesday. Anybody who knows me knows not to put any stock in these claims.Im not hiding from this very unfortunate situation, he said. I am willing and able to stand up and be counted for what I did. Aultman, retired to North Florida, could not be reached for comment.The former directors were victims of a fraud perpetrated by the president of Orion and certain of its employees, Miami attorney Lawrence Kellogg, defending the four former board members, said in an e-mail to the Naples Daily News .Orion Bank, which started as First National Bank of the Florida Keys in 1976, had moved to Naples and grown to 23 branches by the time federal regulators closed it in late 2009. The bank collapsed under the weight of the unsustainable growth strategy that the defendants permitted Chief Executive Officer Jerry Williams to pursue, the lawsuit says. Williams forwarded and the board approved excessive loans for real estate and construction even after the real-estate market began to decline, the suit says. In essence, the defendants bet the banks survival on the proposition that real estate values would never fall. The FDIC said the failure of Orion Bank cost the agency about $880 million.Williams, 53, is serving a six-year sentence at a federal prison camp in Alabama after admitting to fraud in his efforts to hide bad loans and falsely make the bank appear healthy.The board and its loan committee barely discussed details of large loans even after regulators warned that Orion was overextended, the 26-page suit contends. Kellogg said the FDIC acknowledged in Williams sentencing hearing that the former chief executive was the one person who could have prevented the massive losses. Schmitt said the FDIC interviewed him only once, and filed the civil suit on the last day before it would have been prevented by statute of limitations.This is something Ive been dealing with for three years, he said. Its worrisome, aggravating and embarrassing. But I am very confident I will be able to respond to any and all claims, and will be vindicated.My family and I lost a lot in the Orion failure, Schmitt said. The ones I feel most sorry for are the employees. The shareholders and everybody else involved knew there was risk.FDIC claims Keys Realtor OKd bad loansBANKINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgMore early voting likelyFlorida Secretary of State Ken Detzner all but guaranteed that a set of recommendations he submitted Monday would help Florida overcome the long lines on Election Day that left voters grumbling and once again made the state the butt of late-night comediansjokes.In a 12-page report, Detzner called for an optional extension of early voting days, an expansion of the number of early voting sites available for county supervisors of elections, and new limits on the length of ballot summaries for constitutional amendments offered by the Legislature. The recommendations are largely in line with what is emerging as a bipartisan consensus about how to handle the snafus that plagued the November presidential election, when Florida was the last state in which a winner was projected.The bottom line is: Voter confidence must be restored, Detzner told the House Ethics and Elections Subcommittee in a hearing Monday afternoon. Voters are relying on us to ensure their elections are accessible, efficient and fair. Detzner left little wiggle room when pressed on how certain he was that the recommendations in his report would prevent a recurrence of the issues that sprang up in November. I am 100 percent confident that my report and our recommendations will solve the problem, he said.Detzners recommendations would allow supervisors to offer up to 14 days of early voting, though they could stick with the current eight days or pick some number in between. And in addition to a limit on the word length on legislative amendments, Detzner said a provision in state law allowing the full text of an amendment to be placed on the ballot should be repealed.Senate Ethics and Elections Chairman Jack Latvala, (R-St. Petersburg) filed legislation Monday (SB 600) that would get rid of that language and make other changes relating to absentee ballot certificates and the buffer zone for voters at polling places. Lawmakers say they are close to what Detzner and the supervisors of elections are proposing.I think between the three groups ... theres a lot of consistency in some of the issues that we can address, said Rep. Jim Boyd, a Bradenton Republican who chairs the subcommittee.But there are still some details to work through. Boyd created a chart that lists a provision that would only limit the first summary in a legislatively proposed amendment if lawmakers added more than one summary as a backstop against court challenges to the ballot language. And if the attorney general were forced to write a new summary after a court challenge, that would not be subject to the limit. Democrats raised minor objections to that and are also pushing to broaden the scope of early voting measures. Rep. Alan Williams (D-Tallahassee) said the state should consider mandating eight hours of early voting; under Boyds proposal, a supervisor could offer anywhere from six hours to 12. Were not going outside of what many of the supervisors of elections hours of operation already are with at least eight hours, Williams said. Other groups are also pushing for more change. Ron Bilbao of the ACLU of Florida told the committee that the state should also consider allowing same-day voter registration.Secretary says restore confidenceBy BRANDON LARRABEENews Service of FloridaVOTING RIGHTS
Monroe Countys Development Review Committee holds three days of open meetings this week on changes to the countys land-use plan.The sessions, all beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the Marathon Government Centers Media Room, will be held Feb. 13, 14 and 15.County consultants with Keith and Schnars describe the sessions as beginning the third phase of a four-part update of the Monroe County comprehensive plan, which governs land-use in unincorporated areas of the Florida Keys and takes in everything from transportation to park space.An evaluation of the decades-old plan yielded 127 recommendations to update the plan relating to issues such as countywide visioning and planning, economic sustainability, redevelopment... alternative modes of transportation, natural resource protection and more, a summary says. Elements under discussion items include:Feb. 13: Energy conservation and climate; mass transit; traffic circulation; and future land use.Feb. 14: Conservation and coastal management; recreation and open space; intergovernmental coordination; and ports and aviation facilities.Feb. 15: Housing; potable water; sanitary sewers; solid waste; drainage; and aquifer recharge. The updated comprehensive plan will provide the roadway for how the county will address growth issues for the next 20 years, says a summary. The last major changes took place in 1995.Changes made by the DRC, consisting primarily of county and state planning staff, will be forwarded to the county Planning Commission at meetings later this year.For specifics, go to http: //KeysCompPlan.com employee and [it] would not have been the appropriate recipient for these types of reports at all.The Gentile-specific complaints allege, among other things, that he asked other employees to get on their knees and pray something he vehemently denies. The issue arose in October when Big Pine Key resident Larry Murray, a former member of the Audit and Finance Committee and unsuccessful School Board candidate, asked to see the reports generated through the hotline.After three months of asking for and not getting them, some of them were finally released last month. Reno, who has since moved out of the Keys, was dismayed by the situation after learning of it through friends and media reports. This is making me look bad, she said. I had no responsibilities or action on this. I had no idea what as going on. I did what was asked of me. Superintendent Mark Porter is working with district legal counsel on his next move. I dont have any conclusions. Its more than just reading e-mails. I continue to work with [attorney] Dirk Smits on our assessment and evaluation. Asked if hes considered suspending or reassigning Gentile, Porter said, I think it would be premature to take that step.In the meantime, Gentiles three-year contract, worth $122,000 per year, expires in April. Porter hasnt taken any steps to advertise the job or otherwise solicit a replacement.

Tighter rules on sinking retired military ships as artificial reefs would prevent reef organizations from acquiring ships like the Vandenberg, Spiegel Grove, Duane or Bibb .In mid-2012, the U.S. Maritime Administration, which oversees decommissioned military vessels, moved to prevent any of its more than 150 ships built before 1985 from being used as reefs due to concerns of placing PCBs or other harmful materials into ocean waters.The regulatory landscape has changed, said Joe Weatherby of Reefmakers, which spearheaded sinking of the Vandenberg a 523-foot former Air Force ship, about seven miles off Key West.Now the older ships, including vessels that saw World War II service, mostly will be assigned to be salvaged as scrap. It broke my heart to see old destroyers and other [pre1985] ships going to the scrap yard, Weatherby said. Theyre cool ships but very expensive to clean. Reefmakers handled last Julys sinking of the 165-foot Mohawk in the Gulf of Mexico, about 28 miles from Sanibel Island, as an artificial reef in 90 feet of water. The Mohawk a World War II-era Coast Guard ship, was in good shape for sinking, having been cleaned and used as a floating museum in Key West before upkeep costs proved too expensive. Artificial-reef advocates in the Keys were active from the early 1980s through the 2009 sinking of the Vandenberg but no ship-sinking projects currently are being pursued. Managers of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary said that after the Vandenberg project was complete, it would enforce a moratorium on new shipwreck reefs until more is known about their effects on the marine ecosystem. The Vandenberg took a lot of years and was expensive, Weatherby said, but shes done right.... In the Keys, we try to make vacationers happy. I think our artificial-reef system is part of that. The Artificial Reefs of the Keys organization, which organized the Vandenberg sinking, has closed up shop. We had a mission and we accomplished our mission, said Sheri Lohr, a former group officer. We dissolved after a great success.... [The Vandenberg ] is teeming with life and has attracted divers from all over the world. It did everything we said it was going to do. Concern over use of toxic materials on older ships increased after a report by the Basel Action Network environmental group indicated higher levels of PCBs around the shipwreck reef Oriskany a retired Navy aircraft carrier sunk in 2006 off the Florida Panhandle. Inactive Navy ships technically remain available for reef projects but the Navy has not received any requests from states or other eligible organizations for transfer of ships for reefing, Navy spokesman Kenneth Hess said in an e-mail. The Navy has no current plans to transfer an inactive ship for artificial reefing. The Diving Equipment Marketing Association continues to support creating shipwreck reefs that meet the appropriate [environmental] standards, group Executive Director Tom Ingram said in an e-mail. Not only does shipwreck diving contribute to the divetravel industry, it contributes to the economy of the entire region, Ingram said.The concern: PCBs,other bad materialsARTIFICIAL REEFSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comLand-plan changes up for talksCounty panel sets aside three daysMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org The Navy has no current plans to transfer an inactive ship for artificial reefing.

But the negotiations will be colored by Gov. Rick Scotts proposed $18.5 billion public education budget for the coming year. Included in his education spending plan, subject to approval by the Legislature, is a $2,500 salary increase for all teachers statewide. United Teachers of Monroe President Holly Hummell-Gorman stressed that the proposed pay hike has to pass not only the Legislature but also be subject to local collective bargaining. Many political watchers interpret the Republican Scotts proposal to increase teacher pay as means to garner support from teacher unions as he seeks re-election in 2014. Hummell-Gorman is focused on the level of perstudent funding. Under Scotts proposal, school districts would receive $6,799 a $412.25 year-over-year increase for each student. This budget restores about $400 per student, Hummell-Gorman said, but would still be more than $300 per student less than in the 2007-08 school year. While were happy in any renewed financial support for Monroe County public schools, we need to put it in its proper context. Another looming challenge is a Legislative mandate to tie teacherssalaries to student success primarily using standardized test scores as a measure of teacher success. On that front, HummellGorman and other union representatives meet weekly with district staff and discuss how to integrate the required performance measures. Hummell-Gorman said formal contract negotiations could begin as early as March in advance of an August school start following summer vacation. Overall, Scotts budget proposal increases education funding by $1.2 billion from the current year and includes $480 million for the teacher raises, $100 million for digital learning initiatives and $74.9 million for safeschools projects. Superintendent Mark Porter, hired in August, has yet to negotiate a full contract with UTM but has had some success at the bargaining table. In September, he ended an 18-month stalemate overseen by his predecessor, Jesus Jara, when UTM agreed to cut $400,000 from the $1.1 million extra-duty supplement budget. Under Jaras watch, UTM unsuccessfully lodged a number of labor relations complaints and subsequent appeals with the state Public Employee Relations Commission. In December 2010, the School Board approved a three-year teacher contract that considered across-theboard raises and the introduction of performance pay. The next year, under then-Superintendent Joseph Burke, the funding did not materialize so the board had to reverse on the raise and performance pay, and go so far as to implement seven mandatory unpaid furlough days for all employees to cut costs.Negotiations on contract approachingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Bids due for college buildingFoundation construction on a $5 million marine propulsion building has begun on Florida Keys Community Colleges Stock Island campus and Thursday, bids are due from subcontractors that want to get in on the project. The lead contractor thats already started working is Ajax Building Corp., with offices in Tallahassee and Jacksonville, among other places. College spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said the plan is for college staff to review the subcontractor bid packages and make a selection by mid-February. Design firm Hayes Cummings Architects of St. Petersburg delivered drawings in January. Thats the same firm that designed the colleges 100-bed, $8.2 million Lagoon Landing dormitory, which opened in August 2011. As for the marine propulsion building, We are currently in the process of value engineering those plans to make sure we are within the proposed budget, ErnstLeonard said. Value engineering is a review that compares function to cost.As planned, the threestory building would be open on the ground floor, allowing boats to be trailered in an out. The second floor would house engine mechanics shops and the third would house classrooms, lecture halls and offices.In the works since 2007, the 30,000-square-foot building was originally slated for a fall 2009 opening and projected to cost around $4 million. The availability of state Public Education Capital Outlay dollars and several redesigns have pushed the project off. So far, the college has spent around $971,000 on preconstruction work. Additionally, $6.1 million has been set aside to cover the projected cost plus any overruns or other expenses. The colleges marine program offers classes in seamanship, gasoline and diesel engine repair and maintenance, welding and fiberglass work.$5M project will house marine workBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE ONE BIG BABY Still a youngster,a strapping juvenile pelican is being treated by staff at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier.A boater found the pelican,out of its nest and apparently abandoned, off Islamorada in mid-January.About four weeks old,the bird was too young to survive on its own and the nest could not be found.An exam by bird center staff showed the seabird was underweight and needed treatment for parasites.The youngster is expected to recover.Courtesy WILD BIRD CENTERAnother looming challenge is a Legislative mandate to tie teacherssalaries to student success primarily using standardized test scores as a measure of teacher success.
With $75 million earmarked for the Florida Forever land buying program and another $60 million for the Everglades, Gov. Rick Scotts proposed spending blueprint for the coming year met was with applause from environmentalists encouraged by a seeming recommitment to their causes. Scott announced the environmental funding priorities as part of a $74.2 billion spending plan the governor proposed Thursday. To pay for Florida Forever purchases, the first in several years, Scott has proposed earmarking $50 million from state land sales, which typically revert to the general revenue fund. Well see how much land there is and what we have that is extra, Scott said. Ive set aside $25 million for additional land purchases for sure, and then depend on how much land is sold up to $50 million. Thousands of acres of land in the Keys is owned by the state for preservation, bought through Florida Forever and its predecessor agency, Preservation 2000. Environmentalists say they will watch to see where the new money comes from but at first blush are encouraged at funding levels of Florida Forever and Everglades restoration, which have been hit hard by recent tough fiscal times. This is really good news on both fronts, said Eric Draper, executive director of Audubon Florida. Its the first time in several years that we will see over $130 million in potential funding for both these programs.A1998 constitutional amendment prevents state officials from selling conservation lands unless they no longer serve that purpose. Draper said that early concerns were tempered after meetings with the Department of Environmental Protection officials, who pledged to abide by the spirit and intent of the constitutional requirement.With the economy recovering, it is important to allocate funds to preserve our states natural areas and protect the places that make Florida special, the Florida Forever Coalition said in a statement. We look forward to working alongside the governor this legislative session to advocate for the appropriation of funds for Florida Forever. We appreciate the governors commitment to Everglades restoration and we believe the Florida Legislature will more than match his recommendation, said Eric Eikenberg, CEO of the Everglades Foundation. We look forward to working with Gov. Scott and the Legislature during the upcoming session to ensure that this funding proposal moves forward.C-111 CanalWith two new pump stations in operation, the South Florida Water Management district and its federal and state partners announced the completion of the C-111 Spreader Canal Western Project to help restore freshwater flows to Florida Bay, preserve clean water in Everglades National Park and maintain flood control for eastern communities. District engineers reported all components of the project are operating as designed, and the system performed well during 2012 wet-season testing. With automated operation, the project stands ready to receive water and deliver benefits to the Everglades ecosystem. In addition, scientists will begin compiling data to evaluate project performance and environmental response. In the C-111 western project, a series of pump stations and canals raise groundwater levels directly outside the eastern boundary of Everglades National Park. The higher water table creates a hydraulic barrier between the park and the urban areas of Miami-Dade County to retain fresh water in the park. This also helps achieve healthy salinity levels in Florida Bay by restoring the quantity, timing and distribution of freshwater flows via Taylor Slough to the bay ecosystem. Spanning 850 square miles, Florida Bay is an integral component of the Everglades ecosystem and is a valuable economic resource for the region. The bays waters serve as a nursery for an array of aquatic life and are home to dozens of commercially and recreationally important species such as spiny lobster, snapper and pink shrimp. ANational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration study found that Florida Bay contributed approximately $1.7 billion in the form of destination spending in one year alone.Moneys set aside for land, EvergladesBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of Florida Wednesday,February 6,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Bruce and Barbara Swango of Tavernier, FL are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Carrie Swango, to K.C.

Because with seemingly each month sprouting a new problem and new costs no one has been called upon to answer for the mistakes. Not the architect, Rick Smith of Tampa; not the contractor, Coastal Construction; not the principal whos part of the construction team, Mike Henriquez; not anyone in the districts Facilities and Construction Department; and not Superintendent Mark Porter, whos the one who should be asking the hard questions but isnt. From the beginning in 2010, the rebuild of the school on Leon Street has been on a fast track because then-Superintendent Joe Burke secured a federal loan for it but it has a deadline attached. And if the $38 million school isnt complete by June, the Monroe County School District faces the prospect of even more costs fines starting at $2 million. First there was the discovery by a Keynoter reporter who happened to actually look at the building that the first phase of construction had the new school at 56 feet tall, more than double Key Wests 25-foot height limit for buildings in that neighborhood. Did no one check this most basic requirement? That led to emergency redesign for the rest of the school, and mitigation talks with the city that didnt mean anything. Then there was the discovery in early 2012 that soil at the construction site was contaminated and couldnt hold the weight of the building, leading to a $400,000 bill to remove it by the truckloads. Did no one do an environmental assessment, which is required for pretty much everything in the Keys? And then the kicker if there isnt another one just waiting around the corner: No one seemed to know that in any construction, theres a 1990 law to be followed called the Americans with Disabilities Act, which requires accessibility for the handicapped. Aparking lot at Horace OBryant was designed not taking the ADAinto account so another $350,000 needs to be spent to come into compliance. Meanwhile, Henriquez apparently is approving change orders at the school on his own whim, never mind that his background is not in construction. Repeatedly asked about this, he has refused to talk. Its time for the School Board to demand answers. Call in the architect Smith. Call in Coastal Construction officials. Call in everyone past and present from the Facilities and Construction Department who had a hand in this. Call in former superintendents Burke and Jesus Jara. Call in Henriquez. Call them all in at a widely publicized public meeting not a regular School Board meeting and demand answers. Because so far, the public hasnt gotten any.Its been said (and I paraphrase Judge Gideon Tucker, the citable original source) that no ones property is safe while the Legislature is in session. From Fair Insurance Rates for Monroes perspective, that has certainly been true.Legislative actions in Tallahassee every year impact our ability to retain and afford windstorm insurance for our property, a requirement for those of us with mortgages. This year is no different.There are already efforts afoot to raise the cap on annual increases in our rates from 10 percent to 13 percent. With an almost entirely volunteer team, FIRM helped secure that 10 percent cap, among other successes over the past eight years. Without it, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. may have raised your rate by 233 percent last year to reach what they believe is our indicated rate. Can you imagine what your premium might be today without the work of FIRM? This season, FIRM has been working with our legislative delegation to share our concerns over three key issues: Affordability coverage, availability of coverage and accuracy of the models used to set rates. State Rep. Holly Raschein has agreed to oppose any increase in rates. Her office will work to identify legislative exceptions for Monroe County (and similar territories) to rules that prohibit Citizens from covering homes under construction, many second-home owners, and homes with high replacement cost values. In addition, she will sponsor legislation to improve the accuracy of models by adding expertise to the Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodologies, returning the commission to an annual meeting schedule and studying the distinction between hurricane damage from water versus wind. Sen. Dwight Bullard also understands the importance of these issues to Keys voters. In the meantime, FIRM is about to embark on a major windstorm risk remodeling and analysis initiative to gain an accurate assessment of the wind risk in the Keys. Funded by Citizens at FIRMs request, the study has three major components. The first is a vulnerability study, an analysis of our building characteristics with on-the-ground verification through an independent inspection of a statistically valid sample of homes (if FIRM and our consultants select your home as part of the random sample, please allow the independent inspector to inspect it. The results will not be shared with Citizens by address and cannot be used to increase your premium; the goal is the opposite to help lower your premium).The second is a storm-surge study, an analysis of historic and projected damage from hurricanes that is caused by storm surge. Anyone who lived through Hurricane Wilma understands the impact storm surge has on our low-lying islands. The final component is a natural catastrophe analysis that will examine data from the first two steps, review current insurance structures and coverages, assess current and projected risk, identify financial requirements to cover that risk and, finally, evaluate potential insurance structures. That could mean continuing to work with Citizens with new data for the Keys, courting private insurers, or creating a mutual or reciprocal company for Monroe County either alone or in conjunction with other coastal areas. On top of all this, weve been doing some serious housekeeping to accommodate this new level of work.FIRM has several new board members, a new administrative aide (Katy Taylor), a new office (422 Fleming St., Key West), a new phone number (2943476) a new website (www.firmkeys .org) and a new logo reflecting our sturdy metal-roof construction.FIRM needs your help. From cooperating with FIRM should your home be randomly selected for an inspection to volunteering for one of our committees to making a financial contribution, your support is what we need to address our windstorm insurance crisis. Please attend one of our upcoming annual membership Meetings to learn what you can do to help secure your financial future. And thank you for your past support.

Troopers said Lakeland resident Joshua Patchell, 29, was driving a 2005 GMC north on 905 with Brittany McLeod, 25, from Brandon riding as a passenger. It was around 12:20 a.m. For unknown reasons, after traveling through a curve in the road, [he] proceeded to travel right and onto the shoulder, Trooper David Riso wrote in a report. He then overcorrected back into the northbound lane, then found himself back towards the same shoulder. The GMC hit a tree line while still heading north and became airborne, then struck a tree. The auto continued forward, overturning and ended up on the northbound shoulder upside down. Troopers didnt say who found the crash site and are investigating more.

More and more, the airlines are steering greater rewards to the traveler who spend more. Delta announced last week that in 2014, frequent fliers will need to spend at least $2,500 to qualify for the lowest level of elite status. Previously, they could qualify on miles alone. The highest level of elite status will require spending $12,500. Travelers prize that status because it moves them to the front of airport lines and lets them qualify for upgrades to first class. Delta said the shift was to make sure our most valued customers receive the best program benefits and a more exclusive experience. Delta appears to be planning more changes in that direction. President Ed Bastian said Delta wants to shift its SkyMiles rewards program to drive the type of customer behavior that we would like to encourage. I think before we didnt discern between a customer that was a high-yielding customer versus a low-yielding customer, he said on the companys quarterly earnings conference call. I think that as we continue to evolve those programs well be continuing to favor the higheryielding customers over the lower-yielding customers. Delta declined to say more about future changes to SkyMiles. JetBlue Airways Corp.s True Blue frequent-flier program already awards points based on dollars spent, not on miles.Two years ago Southwest Airlines Co. changed its frequent-flier program to reward more-expensive tickets. The change jarred some Southwest customers used to its egalitarian image, with no business class or assigned seats.That is not likely to be a problem for Delta. They never tried to be Southwest. So its not going to impair their image in the way that these changes have affected Southwest, said Tim Winship, who runs frequentflier.com. Business travelers are going to be the winners because they are already spending enough to reach these thresholds, Winship said. The losers are going to be the folks out there who are more price-sensitive.Business travelers likely to benefitBy JOSHUA FREEDAssociated PressCONSUMERS MIDDLE KEYS BURNS Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

Keys LifeFlorida Keys Keynoter WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,FEBRUARY 6,2013 CLASSIFIEDS INSIDE 6B Griese Spoon Miami Dolphins great Bob Griese calls upon some friends for his new recipe book.Story, 4B Civil War Days Get out to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park in Key West and step into the 1860s.Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Conchs,Hurricanes advance in tourneyAs expected, all 14 Key West High School wrestlers and most of Coral Shores Highs team advanced to the regionals at Fridays seven-team District 16-1A tournament at the Bobby Menendez Gym. This will be like a dress rehearsal for the regionals, Coral Shores coach Tom Milkovich said before the three-hour event got under way. Milkovich, a national champion wrestler at Michigan State in 1972 and four-year head coach at Auburn University, spent the late afternoon urging on his Hurricanes while crouched, like a wrestler, at the edge of one of the two mats. Despite the near-certainty of finishing in the top four and advancing only the Conchs had an entrant in every weight class everyone in the tourney, it seemed, approached each match with a seriousness that often bordered on frenzy.There was Coral Shores 5-foot-tall Dylan McGilura, all 87 pounds of him, eagerly going up against Key Wests Angelo Guieb, who is second-ranked in the state in the 106-pound class. Guieb won with a pin in 31 seconds.Man, hes fast, McGilura, a freshman, said as he returned to the sideline to put on a hooded sweatshirt. Ive only won one match this season, he went on, inspecting a cut lip while bounding on his toes like a boxer.There was the Conchs Roberto Val getting surprised in an opening 225-pound match by Westminster Christians Jeff Mata. Moments afterward, Mata, who had gold close-to-the scalp hair (courtesy of a girlfriend), reeled off what had happened: I took him down. He reversed. I reacted to his mistakes. I rode him when he got tired. I put on a chicken wing [move] and got the pin.In defeat, a somber-looking Val slowly circled the gym. I tried to do a cradle, but I was too far away and he flipped me, he said. Each wrestler was announced in the acoustically challenged gym by Key West athletic director Neda Preston, who was obliged to make announcements promoting the Florida High School Athletic Association, as in, The FHSAAis now on Facebook and Twitter. There was the Conchs Chase Kelley, who pinned Doral Academys Julian Hinojosa in 49 seconds in the 182-pound title match. Kelley was back at 182 after dropping for a time to the 170 class, in which he wasnt comfortable. I had dropped the weight by eating mostly chicken breasts, fruit and salad, and drinking water, he said. I started eating normally and gained 10 pounds in about a week.Regionals start Friday in LauderdaleBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP WRESTLINGPhoto by BERT BUDDEJohn Piraino of Key West gets set to slam Westminster Christians Oliver Black in the 152-pound finals of Fridays district wrestling tournament.Coach: We will be backAplayoff run that captivated an entire city came to a tearful conclusion Friday as the Marathon High School girls soccer team fell just one game shy of its dream to play for the state Class-1A title. The Dolphins took the lead just 45 seconds into the game, but Evangelical Christian School (Fort Myers) answered right back with two goals of its own and held on for a 3-1 win before a rowdy Middle Keys crowd. The Dolphins by luck of the draw in the Florida High School Athletic Association bracket hosted every state playoff game it played this postseason. Each time, the crowds grew larger, with more 800 fans showing up for Fridays Final Four match. The girls (14-8-3) came out to the center of the field following the loss and received one last standing ovation from the appreciative crowd. Many of the players were in tears as they met with friends and family. No one wants it to end like this, but we were the team that nobody bet on. Im so happy to have been a part of this team; every single one of them is amazing, senior Taylor Konrath said.

Old mackies back in townAcouple of much-needed cold fronts have cooled down the water temps enough to spur on some of our winter fish visitors, most noticeably the mackerel. Kings and Spanish, along with our resident ceros, are finally biting with regularity. If youre looking to load your smoker, nows your opportunity. Youre likely to find them anywhere off the deep edge of the reef, around the wrecks, on the patches, in Hawk Channel and the Gulf of Mexico. Live baits, such as pilchards, are working for all the mackerel species. For the largest kings, opt for live blue runners fished under kites. The reef action itself is producing good-size yellowtail snapper as well as the occasional jumbo mangrove snapper from the 30to 60foot depths. When it comes to sailfish, the most consistent action remains in Islamorada waters. But if you can find baits such as ballyhoo, you will up your odds greatly in the Marathon area. And there has been quite a few blackfin tuna taken by those anglers seeking sailfish. Out in the bay, the mangrove snapper bite has been fairly good, with most fish taken around the banks in four to five feet of water. In the Middle Keys up through the Upper Keys, fishing for sea trout has been excellent, as well. There is a scattering of Spanish mackerel in these waters, too. Hopefully this bite will improve with the cooler water temperatures. The same goes in the Gulf, where there are cobia and very large king mackerel.The weeks bestCapt.

It was the last regular-season game for the Conchs, who play Coral Shores at 6 tonight in the District 16-4A tournament at Gulliver Prep in Miami. Key West needs a victory and another on Friday against the winner of the Gulliver-St. Brendan game to host a state playoff game. I think were coming back home, said senior Elliott Valdez. During the regular season, the Conchs split two games with Coral Shores and lost to Gulliver. They played all of those games without 6-foot-5 junior Anthony Rice, who, after returning from suspension, has sparked the team to its winning streak. Rice led the Conchs against Barrington with 18 points, followed by Valdez, who had 11, and Daniel Thompson, who scored 10. Coach Anton Lopez started five seniors against the Falcons Valdez, a regular starter, and Tony German, Miguel Rivera, Jordan Ashe and Douby Ernest. That combination made only two of 17 shots in the first quarter as Barrington went out to a 15-5 lead. Lopez inserted regular starters Rice and LanreScott to begin the second quarter, and the Conchs quickly took a 17-15 lead before Barrington fought back to18-point run powers team in 66-49 winBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BOYS BASKETBALLSee Dolphins,2BSee Conchs,2BSee Wrestling,2BSee Hurricanes,2BSee Fishing,2B

We usually have problems starting a little slow, so we knew we were OK, Pigott said. We kept our heads up and we knew we could get back in it easily. Weve done it multiple times being down a goal or two and coming back. The Sentinels almost immediately began playing a more defensive formation to hold the lead. Marathon dominated possession of the ball and applied constant pressure the majority of the game, but couldnt find the back of the net. I had a feeling tonight was going to be a good night, but they came back and answered back with two quick goals themselves. Then we kept trying to knock on that door and this time no one answered. We had our opportunities; we had our shots, coach Cindy Durkin said.Durkin noted that the rolls dont always go your way in soccer, a game where teams often play defensively once in the lead.Its soccer. Sometimes no matter how much you set up the opportunities and how hard you try, you dont always get it, she said. Our journey ends here tonight, but of the 18 girls on the team, 16 will be back next year. This wont be the only time. We had our run and these girls have the experience of this now. The Sentinels put the game out of reach at the 74:02 mark, as Rullo tapped home a Morgan Ewert crossing ball to make it 3-1.

Time and again, as the crowd screamed, both evaded pins with clever escapes. Piraino, one of seven Conch district champions, won, 10-5, and left the mat elated and with a cut on his nose courtesy of Blacks head. In the end, Key West celebrated its fourth consecutive district title, winning with 185 points. Coral Shores was second with 106.

Key West turned up the defensive pressure in the third quarter, forcing 15 turnovers and scoring 18 consecutive points for an insurmountable 40-25 lead. Barrington, a school in Florida City that had lost 6341 to the Conchs in the season opener, was led by Raymond Bonett, who scored 15 points. Ernest Bush, the Falconscoach, was incredulous that his leading scorer, Kendrick Coleman, wasnt a factor. He averages 24 points and he has no baskets, he said late in the game. The games waning moments were enlivened by three-point shots by Ashe and Fred Carter, and a layup by Rivera that came shortly after he had missed a breakaway dunk attempt. Rivera had three points, as did Carter and Ashe; Luis Acosta scored eight, Scott had five, German added two and Andre Patterson, Lenes St. Pierre and Anthony Cromwell each had one.Conchs hope to host playoffFrom Conchs,1B Key West senior Miguel Rivera passes the ball during the Conchs victory Saturday over Barrington Christian Academy.Photo by BERT BUDDEWeb extrasTheres plenty of more scholastic sports going on with Keys teams,including:The Key West High baseball team looks to rebound from a disappointing 9-14 season.The Marathon tennis team is serving up a new season starting this week.The Key West Lady Conchs softball squad split a pair of preseason games over the weekend and preps for the regular-season opener.

Diamond Dolphins open playMarathon High School is scheduled to host a six-team preseason tournament this weekend to open the 2013 varsity baseball season. Dolphins coach Luis Leal said each team would play two games, one each on Friday and Saturday, as well as take part in a Saturday morning home run derby. The Dolphins are coming off a solid 2012 campaign, which included a trip to the championship game in their inaugural season of South Florida Baseball Conference play. The Dolphins finished 15-12. The conference is made up of six similarly sized South Florida high schools, including Keys rival Coral Shores. The Dolphins defeated the regular-season champion Hurricanes in the semifinals before losing to Miami Country Day.Not even the baseball team a boys team was exempt from the Lady Dolphinsstate Class-1Asoccer playoff run. The girls hosted four games over the past two weeks before Fridays Final Four loss to Evangelical Christian School.Weve been delayed a little bit because our playing field is the one thats used for soccer, but weve been able practice around it, Leal said. But the biggest problem, common for Marathon, is that most players were or are involved in winter sports. The boys soccer season ended last week, while boys basketball was ongoing pending the result of a Tuesday District 16 tournament game. Our biggest distraction was that we had five or six guys playing soccer and we still have a bunch playing basketball. Well make due; its a preseason game, so it gives us a good point to see where we stand, Leal said. The Dolphins graduated a pair of solid pitchers in Joey Gonzalez and Drew Thornbrugh, meaning sophomore Kyle Pierce will step in as the No. 1 starter. He had a solid rookie campaign, earning third-team honors in conference play.Weve been having him throw bullpens and hes picked up some velocity. Hes definitely going to be our No. 1 and well need him to eat up some innings, Leal said.First-team conference performer Carlos OFarrill will be relied on to lead the Dolphinsoffense and play shortstop. Senior Yoniel Esquirol one of the teams top players for years decided against playing this year for personal reasons. Raymond Crespo is slated to play third base, while Ariel Rodriguez will play second and Kevin McKeon is the everyday catcher.

STEINACKER LEONARDGrieses gather sports recipesDid you watch the years biggest game with some of footballs biggest stars? Fat chance, unless youve got deep pockets or knew the right people. More likely, you tuned into the Super Bowl like everyone else on the couch. But if you cant party with gridiron heroes like Dan Marino, Drew Brees and Mike Ditka, at least you can eat like them. Dolphins great Bob Griese and his wife Shay have put together a cookbook packed with recipes from some of their best friends who also happen to be some of the top names in sports.The 168-page anthology, published last year, is aptly named the Griese Spoon Cookbook, a labor of love whose proceeds benefit cancer research and grief counseling.We talked about how it would be fun to get together with some of our good friends like Coach [Don] Shula, [Larry] Csonka, [Dan] Marino, [John] Madden and find out what they like to make, Bob Griese said.Turns out, Shula serves up a mean steak soup (made from 40 pounds of Angus beef stew meat). Csonka, the ultimate outdoorsman, probably hunts the moose called for in his Alaskan chili recipe.And Marino, a proud Italian-American, offered up his Bolognese sauce recipe. It has to be simple, has to be easy, and has to be sports-related to keep [peoples] interest, Shay Griese said. Its done really well. And it supports a cause thats of great importance for Bob Griese, Hall of Fame quarterback and TVanalyst.His first wife Judi died of breast cancer in 1988. Their son Brian Griese, a former NFLquarterback in his own right, created the Denverbased Judis House in her memory. The foundation helps children and family members who are grieving the death of a loved one find hope and healing within themselves, its website states.Shay Griese, meanwhile, serves on the board of Tampas Moffitt Cancer Center, a research facility committed to the prevention and cure of cancer. All proceeds from the Griesesbook go to these organizations. Beyond football stars, other recipe contributors include country star Kenny Chesney (Key lime pie), newscaster Sam Donaldson (enchiladas), hockey great Bobby Hull (chicken dip), baseball manager Don Mattingly (bird nest) and golfer Jack Nicklaus (red velvet cake). In all, the book includes more than 100 appetizers, meals and desserts. I take a lot of pride in this book, Bob Griese said. Everything goes through me. Its amazing I didnt gain 50 pounds while writing it.They call on friends,others for fundraiserBY ADAM H.BEASLEYabeasley@miamiherald.comTHE DINING TABLE The Griese Spoon Cookbook, $29.99.
