WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,FEBRUARY 13,2013 VOLUME 60,NO.13 25 CENTS SUV flipsA two-auto crash on Grassy Key sends three to hospitals,including an 8-year-old boy.Story, 3A Roney tosses a jewelThe Marathon High softball team gets off to a great start with a 15-0 rout of Carrollton.Story, 1B Reports:Club scrubs debit cardsKey West has a long-held reputation as an anythinggoes party town that tolerates and in many cases facilitates an array of bawdy pastimes. Astroll down Duval Street yields strip clubs, clothing-optional bars and establishments catering to alternative lifestyles. But the Adult Entertainment Club, formerly and colloquially known as the Scrub Club, at 1221 Duval, is different. In the 765-day period between Jan. 1, 2011, and this past Feb. 4, Key West police logged 301 calls related to the Adult Entertainment Club thats a call every 2.5 days, a staggering number for an 800-squarefoot place in a neighborhood otherwise populated by cafes, wine shops, boutiques and art galleries. The main complaint: Unauthorized use of customersdebit or credit cards, often to the tune of thousands of dollars.The clubs website, signs and brochures offer scantily clad women available for bachelor parties, fantasy and fetish shows, nude snorkeling, nude parasailing [and] divorce parties. It offers free shuttle and 24/7 escort service.But the voluminous police reports, along with a long trail of Internet posts, messageboard threads and complaints with the Better Business Bureau of Southeast Florida and the Caribbean, paint a far different picture of what goes on inside.But barring specific complaints, the Key West Police Department has no plan to take a closer look. The pattern is usually the same: Its late at night and an intoxicated man steps inside, where he pays an entrance fee, usually more than $100. That begins a conversation with one of the female employees, described on the business website as classy and sophisticated, leading to a private room. From there, its not clear what goes on other than the price goes up, the man supplies his debit card and personal identification number to the woman hes generally nude at this point and she leaves the room. Later on, the man notices unauthorized charges on his card and contacts police.Usual examplesCase in point: On Feb. 4 around 2 a.m., a Russian tourist who told police he had been drinking went into the club and agreed to pay $100, according to a report prepared by Officer David Fraga.While in the club [the tourist] said he gave his ATM card to one of the employees along with his PIN. Four hours later, He saw there was a total amount of about $2,500 charged on his card.Fraga told the man to go to the business and fill out a complaint form for the issue.Afew days earlier, on Jan. 31, a man from St. Johns, Fla., called police to report that on Jan. 26, when he was in town visiting, he went into the Adult Entertainment Club and agreed to pay $200 with one of the females working on this date for sex, according to a report prepared by Officer Tricia Milliken. He also said he agreed to tip the female $100 prior to the services being rendered and gave her his Visa debit card and PIN. He stated he expected sex from the300+ complaints called to police, little is doneBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYMore than 300 police complaints from customers at the Adult Entertainment Club have been logged since Jan.1,2011. Python hunt is deemed PR success storyThe capture of about 50 Burmese pythons from South Florida wild lands during the states first Python Challenge will be celebrated at the events closing ceremony Saturday.However, debate over whether removing the unwanted reptiles from swamps and woodlands proved to be worth the effort will go on much longer. In terms of raising awareness about the problem, the Python Challenge was a raging success, said Bob Reed, a biologist and exotic-species specialist with the U.S. Geological Survey. It got nationwide press coverage, and a lot of people showed up for the training sessions, he said. Event organizers never said it would result in a severe suppression of pythons. Others were more skeptical about the removal of the invasive snakes, which have decimated wildlife in the Everglades.

The plan being presented for discussion Feb. 20 would be the first step toward creating that mechanism.Commission to create permit planLOWER KEYS By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgCensus: Key West women earn moreKey West is one of just four cities in the United States where the median income for women exceeds that of men, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.The American Community Survey, which goes beyond population figures and analyzes comparative social, economic and educational data, found that nationwide, men older than 16 working fulltime and year-round earn an average of $47,233.The same group of women on average earns around 78 percent of that, $37,199.But its different in Key West; Sebring, Fla.,; Madera, Calif.; and Fort Payne, Ala., according to survey data from 2011, the most recent figures released. In the Southernmost City, women on average earn $33,956 while men earn $31,716.Tiffany Horton, director of sales at the Ocean Key Resort and Spa and formerly the revenue manager for the Marriot Beachside, pointed to Key Wests hospitality-driven economy as an explanation.I think its a great area of success for women because of their compassion and their motherly instinct, she said. In hospitality, sales and the hotel industry, you have to relate to so many different people and understand different personalities and work with them.In Sebring, total earnings for both groups are slightly less but women still out-earn men, taking in an average of $28,677 compared to $27,094.Jodi Weinhofer, executive director of the Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and Key West, noted there are many high-level female executives and man-Just 4 cities show men trailing in salaryBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTHE WORKPLACESee Income,3ASee Club,2See Pythons,2ASee N-ROGO,2AKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe crew at Mama Flowers on Caroline Street in Key West is busy preparing for Valentines Day,which is Thursday.On Tuesday,the staff had gone through thousands of roses, putting together arrangements for that special someone.

The number is 295-3190. Office staff said things that can be reported are violations of federal, state or local laws, rules, or regulations; misappropriation of government money; gross government mismanagement; and a waste of public money. If an investigation substantiates allegations with credible evidence, the offices audit staff could refer it to management or law enforcement.

When he returned to St. Johns, he said he realized his card was charged $1,000, not $100. Milliken provided him with a case number.Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the department has heard the Adult Entertainment Club is about more than just entertainment, but that the department focuses its attention on higher-priority initiatives like dealing with aggressive vagrants drinking and panhandling on city streets, and quelling drug dealing.Other prioritiesWe do not get complaints of prostitution, she said via e-mail. Certainly there are intimations and innuendoes that this activity may be occurring. That being said, without any complaints, there are other, higher priorities set by the community and by the department. Look at the issue of vagrancy and panhandling. Atask force made up of business owners, residents and even the mayor has told the department that the community will not tolerate certain behaviors, and we have four quality-of-life officers dedicated to seeing that priority is addressed. Getting drug dealers off the streets is another issue that the community has made very clear is a top priority for our city. Same thing with reducing incidents of burglary. So in those terms, I would answer that there is no specific enforcement strategy for this business. The citys Code Compliance Department has been more proactive, fining the business $500 last year after investigating offsite promotional and solicitation activity. Basically, club employees would park their advertisement-emblazoned vehicle in other parts of Old Town and hand out brochures for the business in violation of code.Cops: We have other prioritiesFrom Club,1A The purpose of the ordinance is to make the N-ROGO permit allocation system less cumbersome and more efficient, says a staff report. The countys Planning Commission, meeting Jan. 30, asked staff to reserve half of the unused commercial space for existing businesses seeking to expand, with the other half for new construction.The issue returns to the Planning Commission on Feb. 27, but the County Commission will make the final decision on the system.Some Rockland Key landowners have protested that allowing one private development to use all the available commercial space would deprive them of any right to build in the foreseeable future. No other concerns have been voiced publicly. Creating a way to divide the N-ROGO bank would not grant automatic approval for the Rockland Key project, which seeks to create a retail center of 400,000 to 500,000 square feet. Anchor stores mentioned are Target or Walmart but nothing has been finalized. The county still is considering an overlay-district ordinance for the 33-acre site, and actual building plans still require major conditional-use approvals and other permits. The overlay district is expected to return to the County Commission in March. In other items at the Feb. 20 County Commission meeting at the Murray E.

Whos in charge? According to numerous public documents, its Jerry W. Andrews and his wife Yuliya, who apparently live full-time in Raleigh, N.C.The two are listed on incorporation papers as being the principals of the 1221 Duval St. club, while Andrews is also listed as a principal in a business called Executive Services of Ukraine Inc.Andrews, 46, lived in Florida in the mid-1990s. He has 12 convictions in Monroe County for credit card fraud and one in Seminole County for earning a living off prostitution.He served a little more than a year in state prison in Osceola County before his release on Dec. 28, 2000. Andrews next showed up in the Denver, Colo., area in 2005 immediately earning the scorn of his Highland Ranch neighbors when Michael Carroll, a registered sexual predator Andrews met while in Florida prison, moved into his house. That began a spat with the community that was documented in the Rocky Mountain News. Reporter Gabrielle Johnston wrote that in 2005, an effort was made by homeowners in the neighborhood to buy the house from Andrews just to get him out the neighborhood. Johnston also reported that before Carroll moved to Colorado, Andrews hired him to run his club in Key West. Florida law enforcement records indicate that Carroll is now homeless and living in the Orlando area. Andrews did not respond to messages sent to him through the club and his personal Facebook account.Andrews served state prison sentenceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST ANDREWSjoke, said Jerry Richardson, a Tampa outdoorsman who registered for the Challenge but did not make it to South Florida during the contest period. Do the math.... It amounts to less than snake and a half per day, and they had more than 1,000 people out there looking.Just under 1,600 people paid $25 to enter Python Challenge, said Carli Segelson, a spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, but how many made a concerted effort is uncertain.Three U.S. Coast Guardsman from the Marathon station entered the contest but did not get into the bush. We never made it up there, said Jamie Hopkins. We had too much work to do here. David Shealy, a former Key Largo resident, owns the Trail Lakes Campground in Ochopee near the Big Cypress area open to Python Challenge hunters. I met a lot of novice snake hunters but they werent too successful, Shealy said. One team that came in here caught five pythons off Loop Road in mainland Monroe County. They worked their butts off, Shealy said. They had an airboat and the means to get around. They devoted a lot of time and money to it. Segelson said 50 caught pythons since Jan. 12 were confirmed captured by Friday. More were expected to be turned in before the contest officially closed late Sunday. Only certain areas were open to the public to hunt pythons and a lot of people hit those areas repeatedly, Reed said. Some people think that because they didnt find a snake, theyre not present. Actually, detecting a python is pretty difficult. Winners and final python numbers will be announced Saturday outside Zoo Miami.Winners announced SundayFrom Pythons,1AZecca friend confronts SchmittThe murder-for-hire case involving Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt, the target, and suspect Dennis Zecca just keeps getting odder.AJan. 19 shouting match between Schmitt and longtime Zecca friend Pete Policastro escalated to the point that the Monroe County Sheriffs Office was called out.It happened at American Caribbean Real Estate at 9141 Overseas Highway, owned by Schmitt girlfriend Ginger Henderson. She said Policastro showed up at her business unannounced around 4:40 p.m. while Schmitt was there and within seconds tops began discussing his friendship with Zecca.Zecca, a part-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard and a former U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada commander, was arrested by the FBI on Dec. 21 for what federal authorities say was an unsuccessful attempt to pay $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine for Schmitts murder. Hes being held without bond. He just showed up, Henderson said. He didnt give a reason he was there. We were just standing there talking and somehow Dennis Zeccas name came up. He said he went and saw him in jail, and gave him money to make phone calls. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said county jail records indicate Policastro has been to see Zecca only once on Jan. 22, three days after the incident with Schmitt. When Schmitt felt threatened by Policastro, he called the Sheriffs Office. Policastro, who didnt return a call for comment, reportedly manages about 15 vacation rentals at the Indigo Reef Resort in Marathon. Henderson said she and Policastro at one time discussed the possibility of American Caribbean managing the units.We had talked six months ago about him turning rentals over to us but that never happened, she said. That whole issue was dead as far as I know. I dont know why he was there, but it never got to business. I dont know that Pete has anything to do with this, but were all on edge.Policastro is involved with a business called Keys Caribbean Rentals. According to the state Division of Corporations website, he and Zecca were managers of a now-defunct company called KVLProperty Management.Schmitts brother David was at the scene on Jan. 19 and said Policastro was badgering Bruce and trying to bait him into making physical contact with him, a claim Bruce makes in the police report.According to the report, Policastro told police he recently resigned from a position with Banana Bay Resort and was looking for a simple life here in Marathon.Peter reportedly indicated that he was looking to get hired by Publix, at which time Bruce indicated that Publix was going to get a liquor store, the report says.It says it was at that point Schmitt recognized Policastro as a friend of Zecca and Marathon Liquor & Deli owner Ralph Lucignano. Schmitt has been outspoken in his belief that Lucignano was the main benefactor of a 2007 city law prohibiting liquor sales within 1,500 feet of schools or other package stores.The law prevented Publix, and more recently the Walgreens adjacent to it, from obtaining the right to sell liquor. The Schmitt family owns both properties. Zecca pleaded not guilty on Jan. 14 to 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. The cocaine counts 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.Cops called when encounter grows heatedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMURDER-FOR-HIRE PLOTCounty might lessen park hoursOne of the Upper Keys smallest public waterfront parks could divide neighbors at the Feb. 20 session of the Monroe County Commission.The fenced, nameless park actually platted as unused Bay Drive off mile marker 95 consists of a grassy lot about 60 feet wide with a small beach. Aresolution reaching the County Commission would close the park on weekends and holidays due to the area being used as a party location, says a staff report. Some nearby residents who use the park plan to protest the closing. I dont work weekends and holidays, said Tamara Green. Thats when I would want to use the park. The park now is open 7:30 a.m. to sunset. Parking is nearly nonexistent.The community is separated into two subdivisions, Bay Harbor and Sunset Point. Bay Harbor owners have their own private bayfront park with no public access.The small Bay Drive county park is different from the countys nearby Sunset Point Park, which is not proposed for weekend and holiday closing. Sunset Point Park has parking and a boat ramp but no beach. Neither park has bathrooms. Neighbors have voiced concern about mainland residents overwhelming both Sunset Point Park and the smaller park on occasions. Lucy Given said she also plans to appeal to the commission to keep the smaller park open on weekends. Theres no reason to keep everybody out just to make a few people happy, she said. We should protect the park, not close it, Green said. The problem is people not respecting the rules they have now. Lets try enforcement before closing.

State enhances program for disabled kidsFlorida health officials said Monday they will assign care coordinators to about 1,600 children with disabilities amid allegations from federal health officials that the state was cutting in-home services and essentially forcing kids into adult nursing homes.An individual care coordinator will work with no more than 40 disabled children at a time who are receiving inhome nursing services and ensure they have continued access to those services. The Agency for Health Care Administration said it will begin the transition within 90 days. Many of the children require ventilators, feeding tubes and other machinery that is too complicated for parents to monitor. The changes come several months after federal health officials threatened to sue the state and accused it of violating federal law by allowing more than 200 children with disabilities and even babies to be kept in nursing homes, often for years. Federal regulators say children languish in facilities, sharing common areas with elderly patients and having few interactions with others, rarely leaving the nursing homes or going outside. After visiting children in six nursing homes, investigators noted the children are not exposed to social, educational and recreational activities that are critical to child development. Educational opportunities are limited to as little as 45 minutes a day, according to a detailed letter from U.S. Department of Justice officials last year. Alawsuit filed in South Florida federal court on behalf of more than a dozen children last year echoes similar complaints, alleging more than 3,300 children with disabilities are at risk of being pushed into adult nursing homes because the state is slashing nursing and other services that would otherwise keep them at home with their families. State officials said they have traveled the state meeting with children in the homes and have repeatedly stressed that all the medically necessary services are being provided but parents and doctors often disagree with the agency over what services are considered medically necessary. Critics said the state has already been using the care coordination model and that its primarily designed to control costs. The state still hasnt decided how much they will defer to childrens doctors when deciding what services to pay for, said Matthew Dietz, an attorney for the plaintiffs.Its response to charge of service cutsBy KELLI KENNEDYAssociated PressHEALTH CAREAn 8-year-old Miami boy was airlifted to Miami Childrens Hospital late Friday night when the sport utility vehicle he was in flipped and rolled on Grassy Key.The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash happened at mile marker 57.5 around 11:25 p.m. Overall, six people were in the SUV, a 2012 Toyota driven by Dayana Barbara Jordana, 31, of Hialeah.Troopers said Jordana was traveling north at the same time as Justin Shroyer, 45, of Tavernier, who was driving a 2008 Hyundai behind Jordana.They said Shroyer was driving faster than Jordana and struck the back of her SUV. That forced the Toyota over the center turn lane and into the southbound turn lane for Kyle Avenue, where it flipped. One of the passengers was partially ejected. In addition to the 8-yearold, two others in Jordanas auto were injured. They were treated at Fishermens Community Hospital. Troopers said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

In hospitality, it doesnt matter who you are. Across the board, its all about performance. Catherine Hill, director of research for the American Association of University Women, said of the comparative pay levels, The big issue is what type of industries you have in that city. Every industry has its own drivers in terms of where you see higher wages, lower wages, more equality, and food service or hospitality is one of those, she said.

Were hoping to create a critical mass where they have two projects to review at one time, Wilson said. According to the schedule, 100 percent construction document completion could be done by Aug. 28. Thats all the prints and drawings for the walls and electrical and all that, Wilson said. Afour-week process for construction bidding could begin by Sept. 13 and a contractor chosen by Nov. 8. The commissions September approval was unanimous for an $80,000 amendment to a contract with mbik2m to prepare a request for proposals to construct the Customs facility at the county-owned Middle Keys airfield. Its estimated to cost $1.15 million. Wilson said he would be a bit more conservative with a completion date. Every time we do a renovation project, it seems to take a bit longer because of unforeseen things we find inside the walls. Hopefully itll be done before Fantasy Fest in 2014, he said.County Airports Director Peter Horton has said half the construction funding would be covered by state DOTgrants. The rest could be funded by aviation fuel taxes collected at Key West International and in Marathon, available money when bonds for the new Key West terminal are paid off next year or existing Marathon airport reserves.Meanwhile, Horton said the county plans fairly soon to begin interviewing candidates for the vacant Marathon airport manager position. Its been open since former Manager Reggie Paros retired last year.Were still accepting applications. In fact, we get them in every day.

Every February, students across the country receive lessons on people like Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and Frederick Douglass in observation of Black History Month.That attention to broader history goes on in Key West, too, but the Southernmost City is also home to one-ofa-kind African American culture site: The African Cemetery at Higgs Beach. In 1860, three Americanowned slave ships, the Wildfire William and Bogota were met by U.S. Navy steamers based out of Key West and their cargo, 1,432 West African slaves bound for Cuban sugar plantations, was intercepted. Once in Key West, the military provided food, clothing, shelter and medical attention. But 295 of the would-be slaves died and were laid to rest near the West Martello Tower on the Atlantic side beach.Corey Malcolm, director of archeology for the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, called the cemetery an absolutely unique historical site.Its the only one in the U.S. The slave trade was illegal but what was happening was a lot of Americans were continuing to participate, Malcolm said. They would go to Africa from New York or New Orleans and then go to Cuba and sell the people to the sugar plantations. That was where the big money was at the time. But national policy directives changed in 1859. Our government basically said enough is enough and decided to do what they could to end the American participation in the slave trade, Malcolm said. They encircled Cuba with Navy steamers and by the spring of 1860, the policy started bearing fruit.The U.S. Navy ships Mohawk Wyandott and Crusader intercepted the three slave ships and the slaves were set up in a compound in Key West, where they waited for three months before the surviving ones were returned to Liberia in West Africa.Liberia became a nation founded by free Africans, many former slaves, in 1847. It became a destination for former slaves in America like those brought to Key West. Hundreds more of the freed slaves expired on the return trip.Malcolm said theres a remembrance ceremony planned at the Higgs Beach site on March 24, from 4 to 5 p.m., that coincides with International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.There are plenty of other opportunities available in Key West to explore African American culture and history:Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, 223 Truman Ave., established in 1878.Bill Butler Park near the Key West Cemetery, the former site of the Monroe County Colored Folks Home.Cornish Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, 702 Whitehead St.Nelson English Park, at Thomas and Amelia streets, named for the first and only black postmaster in Key West, from 1882 to 1886.

Counties, online travel firms go to appealAstate appeals court Tuesday plunged into a longrunning battle between counties and online travel companies about whether the industry owes disputed amounts of hotel bed taxes.Roberto Martinez, an attorney for a group of Florida counties fighting companies such as Expedia and Orbitz, asked the 1st District Court of Appeal to overturn a lowercourt ruling last year that sided with the industry.Online travel companies, which serve as a sort of middleman between travelers and hotels, charge customers for room rentals and fees related to providing the service.The lawsuit and others like it in Florida and elsewhere in the country centers on whether county touristdevelopment taxes should apply to the total price paid by consumers or only to the portions that go for room rentals.Martinez told a threejudge panel that online travel companies are in the business of renting hotel rooms and, as a result, should be subject to taxes on the full amounts that consumers pay. He rejected the idea that state law is ambiguous about the issue, which was a basis for the lower-court ruling. But Darrel Hieber, an attorney for online travel companies, said the industry plays the role of an intermediary, helping consumers make bookings. He said the companies dont rent rooms. Leon County Circuit Judge James Shelfer last April ruled in favor of the online travel industry in the case, which dates to 2009 and has included 17 counties. Shelfer said state lawmakers had not made clear that the companies are required to pay the disputed taxes.Appellate Judge Philip Padovano appeared skeptical Tuesday of the industrys arguments and the idea that state law is ambiguous. Fellow Judge Brad Thomas, meanwhile, pointed out that lawmakers have considered bills in recent years aimed at making clear whether the disputed amounts should be paid.It does seem that the Legislatures grappling with trying to clarify this statute one way or the other, Thomas said. It remains unclear when the appeals court will issue an opinion in the case. The counties that have been involved are Alachua, Charlotte, Escambia, Flagler, Hillsborough, Lee, Leon, Manatee, Nassau, Okaloosa, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, St. Johns, Seminole, Wakulla and Walton. Monroe County led the way in trying to get bed taxes from the online travel industry, suing Expedia, Orbitz, Priceline and Travelocity in January 2009. The county claimed skirted paying Tourist Development Council bed taxes (taxes charged on per-night lodging) when they bought rooms at wholesale rates, resold them for higher prices, then pocketed the difference in bed-tax dollars. Other counties joined the lawsuit and a judge declared the case a class action. The following summer, Monroe settled with the four companies for a combined $2 million; other counties split another $4.5 million. The settlements, however, did not include any admission by the travel companies that they owed the bed taxes.

According to the News Service of Florida, Citizens plans to turn ,000 windonly homeownerspolicies, 3,000 condominium-complex policies and 5,000 commercial non-residential policies over to Weston. Christine Ashburn, director of legislative and external affairs for Citizens, said in an e-mail its too early to say how many of the policies Weston takes over the next few months would be from the Keys. The state-run company holds 1.3 million policies overall. Weston has been reviewing Citizensdata (as other carriers do) since 2011 with the intent of forming a company to remove wind-only policies, she said. The geographic breakdown of policies is not known at this time as policyholders still have the opportunity to opt out of the takeout and remain with Citizens. Grassroots nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe has been fighting against Citizens rate increases since 2006, saving Keys property owners a combined millions of dollars. FIRM President Heather Carruthers said the group plans to investigate Weston and how the move could affect Keys homeowners. She said FIRMs board has several insurance industry professionals that could provide advice. I dont know how many of the policies they take will be in the Keys. We have to do some investigating and see if this is a policy theyd recommend and a company theyd recommend, she said. Carruthers noted a similar move by Florida Peninsula Insurance Co. in 2006, which took on Citizens policies and shortly after attempted to double and triple rates. It looked great but then everybody got slammed, she said. FIRM is concentrating most of its efforts now on a planned $485,000 windstorm insurance rate study that Citizens agreed to fund. The three-pronged study is aimed at keeping Keys windstorm rates manageable for years to come, and could end with the Keys forming their own insurance pool. Citizens is footing the bill while FIRM is overseeing the work.Weston to take coverage from CitizensBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWINDSTORM INSURANCE IN THE COURTS

EDITORIALAbove the Keys, its pure heavenLETTERS TO THE EDITORWhat a great rideIn our recent journey to the Florida High School Athletic Associations state 1Asemifinals, the Marathon High School varsity girls soccer team received an outpouring of support and encouragement from our community. On behalf of the team, I would like to thank all the people that attended our games, put up a sign for us, showered us with love on Facebook, followed us in the newspaper, provided food for the team, assisted on the field, and were generally excited for the girls. This experience went beyond the soccer field. This community came together in an unprecedented way and the girls truly felt a sense of pride and accomplishment from this experience. I have never been more thankful or proud to wear the royal blue and white of Marathon, especially with this amazing team of girls that showed that anything can happen when you believe and work hard toward it. Thank you for the epic ride to becoming 2013 FHSAADistrict 161Achampions, Region 4 champions and state semifinalists.

The Southern Cross Astronomical Society knows the value of the light show visible here. Every year, it brings hundreds of stargazers to Scout Key for the Southern Cross Winter Star Party, which ended Sunday. They come to the Lower Keys for unparalleled views of the night sky unspoiled by the light pollution that hides the heavens in most urban areas, especially in Miami (where the society was founded in 1922). They exited the Keys just days ahead of a stellar visitor that will be flying by Earth on Friday. An asteroid labeled 2012 DA14 will pass within 17,200 miles of Earth thats closer to Earths surface than our orbiting satellites. Scientists note the size of the asteroid roughly half the length of a football field may not seem very big. But an asteroid of roughly the same size exploded near the Tunguska River in Siberia on June 30, 1908, leveling trees across 820 square miles. An asteroid that hit near present-day Winslow, Ariz., 50,000 years ago created the Meteor Crater there, which measures 2.4 miles in circumference and is 550 feet deep. And some scientific studies have pegged a major asteroid strike off the Yucatan Peninsula for causing a dramatic dust plume that could have altered the earths climate in prehistoric times. Consider this unsettling fact: If 2012 DA14s journey was changed by just 15 minutes, it wouldnt just come close to Earth, it would hit our planet just like the big one in 1908. All this reminds us that we remain largely ignorant of the mysteries and wonders of the universe yet to be discovered. Even 20 years ago, we wouldnt have known about 2012 DA14 because it was too small to be picked up by Earth-bound observatories. But thanks to the 2009 launch of an orbiting telescope known as the Kepler Mission, scientists can now spot hundreds of asteroids we never knew existed before, and even plot out trajectories and predict proximity to the earth 100 years into the future. The next time youre out at night, get away from streetlights and headlights. Stop and look up at the heavens. And marvel at what wonders lie just above our heads in the vast universe that surrounds us. And, on Friday, when 2012 DA14 does its Earth flyby, so very close, remember the line we can thank our lucky stars this one was a miss.

The ribbon is cut on the new park.Abolish death penaltyAreview of capital punishment in Florida, as recommended by The Florida Bar, is all well and good, but we know right now that the best approach to the death penalty is to abolish it. No system of justice can avoid mistakes as Floridas 24 capital exonerations show. Speeding up appeals, as recommended by state Rep. Matt Gaetz, would only exacerbate this.Decades of studies have shown that the death penalty is more costly and not a greater deterrent to murder than Floridas only other possible sentence for first-degree murder life in prison without parole. It has also been shown to carry the taint of racial bias.Every decent person feels the tragedy of murder. But instead of the government having the life-or-death power over Floridians, let it spend our tax dollars in ways that will actually reduce homicide, and protect human rights.

Help name Plutos moonsWant to name Plutos two tiniest moons? Then youll need to dig deep into mythology. Astronomers announced a contest Monday to name the two itty-bitty moons of Pluto discovered over the past two years. Pluto is the Roman equivalent of the Greeks Hades, lord of the underworld, and its three bigger moons have related mythological names: Charon, the ferryman of Hades; Nix for the night goddess; and the multi-headed monster Hydra. The two unnamed moons no more than 15 to 20 miles across need similarly shady references. Right now, they go by the bland titles of P4 and P5. Online voting will last two weeks, ending Feb. 25. Twelve choices are available at the website www.pluto rocks.com .Among the choices: Hercules, the hero who slew Hydra; Obol, the coin put in the mouths of the dead as payment to Charon; Cerebrus, the threeheaded dog guarding the gates of the underworld; Orpheus, the musician and poet who used his talents to get his wife, Eurydice, out of the underworld only to lose her by looking back: Eurydice; and Styx, the river to the underworld.As of Monday afternoon, Styx and Cerebrus were leading. The vote tally is updated hourly. The Greeks were great storytellers, and they have given us a colorful cast of characters to work with, said Mark Showalter, senior research scientist at SETI Institutes Carl Sagan Center in Mountain View, Calif. He and other astronomers who discovered the two mini-moons using the Hubble Space Telescope will make the winning selections. Write-in name suggestions are welcomed, but they need to come from Greek or Roman mythology and deal with the underworld.The name for the planetoid, or dwarf planet near the outer fringes of the solar system, came from a little English girl. Plutos discoverer, Clyde Tombaugh, liked that the first two letters were the same as the initials of late American astronomer Percival Lowell. Tombaugh discovered Pluto in 1930 using the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz.NASAs New Horizons spacecraft is en route to Pluto, arriving in 2015 on the first robotic flyby ever. The winning moon names will need final approval by the International Astronomical Union.Styx,Cerebrus are leading vote so farBy MARCIA DUNNAssociated PressASTRONOMYWenski: Dont expect big changeLike millions of other Roman Catholics, when Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski woke up Monday morning and heard the news that Pope Benedict XVI had announced his resignation, he thought it was just rumor.When he realized it wasnt, Wenski called Mary Ross Agosta, the Archdioceses communications director, and told her: Get ready for a busy day.And so it was, as he gave interview after interview on how the popes resignation the first in nearly six centuries might affect the Church and its believers. Wenski doesnt anticipate radical shiftsin the church with a new leader at the helm. Whoever comes on as pope will be Catholic, so ... hell present the Catholic teachings and theres not going to be any changes in those teachings, because the pope is not an absolute ruler who can make it up as he goes along, Wenski said. Still, he said, most people live their faith on a local level, so a papal transition isnt likely to shake things up in South Florida parishes. Wenski, 62, said he understands how demanding the pontifical duties are. When the pope says he doesnt have the strength anymore, considering my own schedule in this little archdiocese, I get it. Its a grueling job.... He embraced the suffering that comes with the job but he doesnt have the physical health and energy to continue it. His doctors have been telling him to restrict his travel, and the ability to travel has become a requisite for a modern-day pope.Barry University theology professor Edward Sunshine acknowledged the popes resignation comes at a time when the church sex-abuse scandals have weakened the moral authority and credibility of church leaders, and when 10 percent of U.S. adults identify as former Catholics.By bowing out, Sunshine added, the pope is setting a modern precedent that is necessary for the church to function well in the world today. With people living longer Pope Benedict XVI is 85, his predecessor Pope John Paul II was 84 when he died after 27 years as head of the church there is an increased chance of someone suffering from a debilitating condition, such as infirmity or senility, Sunshine said.An orderly transition of church leadership if necessary is much better than a long, agonizing wait for an infirm pontiff to die in office, Sunshine said.

One in five consumers had an error in a credit report issued by a major agency, according to a government study released Monday. The Federal Trade Commission reported also said that 5 percent of the consumers identified errors in their reports that could lead to them paying more for mortgages, auto loans or other financial products.The study looked at reports for 1,001 consumers issued by the three major agencies Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. The FTC hired researchers to help consumers identify potential errors.The study closely matches the results of a yearlong investigation by the Columbus Dispatch. The Ohio newspapers report last year said that thousands of consumers were denied loans because of errors on their credit reports. The FTC says the findings underline the importance of consumers checking their credit reports. Consumers are entitled to a free copy of their credit report each year from each of the three reporting agencies.The FTC study also found that 20 percent of consumers had an error that was corrected by a reporting agency after the consumer disputed it. About 10 percent of consumers had their credit score changed after a reporting agency corrected errors in their reports.In September, the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau gained the authority to write and enforce rules for the credit reporting industry and to monitor the compliance of the three agencies. Prior to that, the reporting agencies werent subject to ongoing monitoring by federal examiners.The bureau hasnt yet taken any public action against the agencies. However, it is accepting complaints from consumers who discover incorrect information on their reports or have trouble getting mistakes corrected. The agencies have 15 days to respond to the complaints with a plan for fixing the problem; consumers can dispute that response.By contrast, the FTC can only take action if there is an earlier indication of wrongdoing. It cannot demand information from or investigate companies that appear to be following the law. APbusiness writer Daniel Wagner contributed to this report.

They had a few cut-offs, so Poland put a blue runner in the chum slick with a trace of wire and a 3/0 circle hook, and Lewis landed a huge kingfish on a 10-pound spin rod. What an outstanding catch. Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon, reports great fishing on both sides of the islands with nice-size mangroves and Spanish mackerel bayside and yellowtails, muttons, yellowjacks and almacos oceanside. Yzenascatch of the week goes to Herman and Tina from New York, who caught their limit of yellowtail and, wanting something bigger, Herman landed his first sailfish, all in a half-day trip.Always one of the first of the season to target tarpon in the Marathon area, Capt. Jeff Knapp of Beckoning Charters put his client, Josh Wigent from Columbia City, Ill., on the bite at the Seven Mile Bridge. Wigent went four for four on fish ranging from 25 to 70 pounds, all on lures. It was his first time tarpon fishing and only his second saltwater outing.The SeaSquared crew split its time in various venues last week. Mike Hanafee, Jim Sollecito and Walt Jones fished one trip in Hawk Channel and caught yellowtail, hogfish and an 18-pound kingfish. On a second outing out front, the trio caught more yellowtail, sheepshead and tons of Spanish.The Tammi family, from Ontario, had a fantastic day in the Gulf with a limit of mangrove snapper, a 20-pound kingfish and a boatload of Spanish mackerel. The Gunz/Burgert group fished in the bay and caught mangrove snapper and sea trout.To top off the week, we took the Hackett family, from New Jersey, far offshore where we dropped for gray tilefish and queen snapper, with the largest queenie coming in at 25 pounds.Fred Fisher, Pat Horne, Rob Brotemarkel and Mark Robbins fished with Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina. They caught flag yellowtail and two large kingfish weighing 22 and 39 pounds.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters out of the dock at Turtle Kraals, spent much of the week catching tarpon in Key West Harbor. Mixed in were big mangroves and throwback groupers. On the flats, all species of shark are biting well. And while Mottice is still waiting for the sailfish to show up, there are cero and Spanish mackerel along the reef and a few wahoo down to the west.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 Maritime Scholarship.Capt.

Were concentrating more on our conference than district this year, head coach Patrick Meyers said Monday. That starts at Country Day. Results from the Tuesday home opener against the Conchs were pending at press time. Coral Shores returns just two starters from last seasons 14-11 squad, so keeping up with traditional District 16-4Apowers like Gulliver Prep, St. Brendan and Key West could be a steep challenge. But a talented group of underclassmen and experienced varsity reserves moving into starting roles should make the Canes contenders in the six-team South Florida Baseball Conference. At a Boca Raton preseason tournament last weekend, the Canes lost a tight defensive battle to Class 8A host Spanish River, 4-0, and came within a bad defensive inning of catching 7A Olympic Heights, 12-7. Our younger kids learned they can play against even the really big schools at the varsity level, said assistant coach Jeff Meyers. The Canes used the two tournament games as scrimmages, running through a half-dozen pitchers and assorted lineups. Three players expected to start against Key West did not make the tournament trip. Seniors Kalen Carter and Jonathan Mitjans lead the lineup as returning starters. Carter, one of the squads top two pitchers, tripled against Olympic Heights. If Kalens not pitching, hell be in the field someplace, Jeff Meyers said. He can play third, first or left field. Mitjans, a solid infielder, moves behind the plate this spring to anchor the defense at catcher. Senior infielder David Munoz had a perfect onbase percentage in the Olympic Heights game with two hits and a pair of walks. Will Goodwin, a sophomore, and Carter likely will draw most of the pitching starts. Seniors Matt Cavanagh and Graham Miller also will be part of the rotation. Younger players expected to make a mark include hitter Daryl Chou, outfielder Dalton Falcucci, and infielders Cody Richards and Ian Thomson. Coral Shores hosts Ransom Everglades, a conference opponent, at 6 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Caneshome field at Founders Park.ICS EaglesIsland Christian Schools varsity baseball team opens the season with two home games, playing Miami Christian on Friday and Princeton Christian on Tuesday. Both games at the ICS Islamorada field start at 3:30 p.m.Conference success is the priorityCORAL SHORES BASEBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comDolphins sweep own tournamentThe Marathon High School baseball team posted a pair of wins Friday and Saturday during a six-team weekend preseason tournament hosted by the Dolphins.Marathon defeated Fort Pierce Westwood High School, 11-2, in a Friday contest that didnt get under way until almost 11 p.m. Marathon defeated Keys Gate Charter School on Saturday, 11-7. Friday, the Dolphins struggled early with a Fort Pierce starter throwing upwards of 90 mph. But Marathons bats came alive in the fourth inning, as they broke a scoreless tie with a seven-run rally. It was a combination of they only got to hit off of live pitching once in the past few weeks. On top of that, it was first-game excitement. We came through the second time, coach Luis Leal said. Ian Almodovar reached on an error and stole second and third base. He later scored on a Carlos OFarrill single to make it 1-0. A Raymond Crespo single scored Ariel Rodriguez and OFarrill to make it 3-0. Kyle Pierce singled to score Crespo, and Kevin McKeon singled home two more runs before the rally was over. Fort Pierce scored a run in each of the fifth and sixth innings to close the gap slightly, but Marathon responded with four runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the game out of reach.On the mound, Pierce had a solid opening outing, pitching six innings and striking out nine batters. He allowed three hits and one walk. Freshman Kyle Couty pitched the seventh, allowing no hits and striking out one.Pierce also led the Dolphins with three hits Friday, including a double and two RBI. McKeon was 2-for-3 with two RBI. On Saturday, the Dolphins struggled to get going against Keys Gate in the opening innings. Theyre a good team [but] we made a lot of mistakes. We were out there until 1 a.m., so we came out flat but Im glad they were able to pick it up, Leal said. Keys Gate took an early 2-0 lead, but Marathon answered back with three runs in the bottom of the second. McKeon had a tworun single and Sean Roussin had a RBI double. Keys Gate led 6-4 after the top of the fifth inning, but the Dolphins scored five in the bottom half to grab the lead for good. Jesse Deluca hit a tworun single and scored on the play when the hard hit ball was misplayed by the centerfielder. Almodovar added a two-run single of his own to make it a 9-6 game.Keys Gate made it 9-7 with a sixth inning run, but the Dolphins added two in the bottom half to make it 11-7.Deluca pitched the opening two innings, allowing three hits and two runs with a strikeout and two walks. Freshman Frank Gonzalez pitched 1.2 innings and allowed three hits and two runs.Couty pitched the final 3.1 innings; he allowed no hits, but walked eight batters and gave up three runs. He also struck out three. Deluca was 2-for-3 with a stolen base, two runs scored and two RBI on Saturday. Almodovar was 2for-4 with three stolen bases, and Roussin was 2for-2 with a double, run scored, stolen base and RBI. Marathon was scheduled to host Ransom Everglades School Tuesday.Team looking solid going into seasonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALL
Afirst-inning uprising gave the Key West High School baseball team a 5-0 lead Friday night against Westwood Christian.The Conchs went on to lose, 16-5, in their second preseason game at the La Ley Sports Complex in Homestead.Key West gave up 15 of the runs in the last three innings nine in the fifth. The game was called after the sixth because of the states 10-run mercy rule. The Conchs, who had lost to Miami Brito, also last week in Homestead, were outscored in their two preseason games, 23-7. They opened the regular season Tuesday night against Coral Shores High in a game completed too late for todays paper. Their home opener will be at 7 p.m. Friday against Champagnat Catholic at Rex Weech Field. In the first inning against Westwood a 2Astate finalist last season the Conchs got singles from Marcus Brisson and Andrew Freeman, and a double from Darren Miller. They were also helped by two walks and a hit batter.Starting pitcher Brandon Presley had a 5-1 lead going into the top of the fourth. But that lead vanished when the Warriors scored four runs. Presley was relieved by Joey Figueroa, who got the final out.Figueroa took the mound in the top of the fifth, and when he had walked off it, the Warriors had scored nine times for a 14-5 lead. Abad throw by first baseman Chris Garcia one of four Key West errors prolonged that outburst, which was capped by a grand slam by Jose Suarez. With no other pitchers available, Brisson came in from left field to get the last two outs in the sixth, but his error and a sacrifice fly resulted in Westwoods last two runs. In addition to his firstinning single, Miller had a double, walked twice and stole a base. Steven Wells and Gus Galo both doubled.

In addition, Elizabeth Roa was expected to return at goaltender but remains sidelined with a leg injury. All in all, it will require returning players to step up and fill the shoes of the girls who graduated, Mark Hall said.All 122 girls lacrosse teams in Florida High School Athletic Association ranks compete in a single division, regardless of school size.The Lady Canes finished in the top quarter at No. 28 last spring and aim to finish higher this year, Hall said.Lots expected of returneesFrom Hurricanes,1Band Frankie Carreras had 15, all in the first quarter.Ransom Everglades will be led Thursday night by 6foot-9 junior Trey Mourning, the son of former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning; and 6-4 senior guard Sam Singer, who leads MiamiDade County with a scoring average of 27.3. Singer also averages 10.4 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 4.5 steals. Key West, during its 16-1 season a year ago, defeated Ransom twice, 63-55 at home and 73-58 on the road, but in neither game were Mourning and Singer both on the court. Singer scored 37 points in the game he played against the Conchs. Singer is a great ballplayer, Lopez said. Well look to contain him and keep Mourning out of the paint. Mourning was not a factor inside against the Conchs last season in Key West. Were pretty confident, but were a different team, of course, said Lopez. Of last years starters who faced Ransom Thomas Butler, Tony Guieb, Ryan Wagner, Anthony Rice and JeQuan Lopez all are gone. The first three graduated, and Rice, a junior, and Lopez, a senior, are suspended because of their involvement in a preseason theft at the high school.Conchs to face scoring leaderFrom Conchs,1B several others on account of soccer. The team couldnt even hold tryouts until after its season was supposed to under way. Its been five days of practice, one of them having to be tryouts. I felt a little unprepared, but sometimes its just good to get in there and see where youre at, Murphy said.Savannah Rodamer, Roney and Taylor Konrath all walked to start the bottom of the first. Key West High School transfer Ashlyn Katz singled home Rodamer and Roney to make it a 2-0 game.The addition of Ashlyn Katz is huge. She has a lot of experience catching. Her and Jordan are working together and shes able to call pitches for her, Murphy said. Carrollton walked in another two runs and three others scored on errors, putting the Dolphins up big after one inning. Marathon added one run in the second, four in the third and two in the fifth to end the game. Roney took care of the rest, hardly allowing Carrollton batters to make contact with the ball. She allowed just one hit and one walk, and struck out eight. The Dolphins (1-0) are scheduled to visit Doral today at 6 p.m. in Miami.Fins benefit from free passesFrom Dolphins,1B weekend with Orlando Lake Highland Preps Jake Brindley. Brindley (44-5) is ranked first in the state in 1A and Guieb is ranked second. Kelley, who transferred to Key West from Detroit, had two pins and two technical falls. He has a shot to make it to the [state] finals, Jimenez said. The quarterfinal match will be his toughest test. Several wrestlers came close to advancing, including the ConchsTyler Jones (132) and John Piraino (152), who were a match away. Andrew Calderwood (145), who went to the state meet last year, also failed to qualify. He had a tough bracket, Jimenez said. Coral Shores220-pound Chris Perez also put on a strong performance, though he lost in the semifinals. Perez lost a heartbreaker, Biondoletti said. Perez is the most talented first-year wrestler Ive coached. I expect to see him place in the state tournament next year.The Hurricaneseighthplace finish at the regional is the highest finish for a Coral Shores team in as long as I can remember, Biondoletti said.Jon Perrotti, a senior at 132, finished with two wins that helped the Canes score team points. Rion Hunter, a sophomore 138-pounder, also delivered some points. Both just missed qualifying for the state, Biondoletti said.Key West has had two state weight-class champions Max Llama last season and Ralph Major in 2008. Coral Shores has yet to have a champion, though Biondoletti finished third for the Hurricanes in 1985.The next year, Biondoletti, who had transferred to Western High in Fort Lauderdale, became a 119pound state champ.The state finals begin at 10 a.m. Friday, with the championship matches at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.Staff writer Kevin Wadlow contributed to this report.Keys send 8 to the stateFrom Wrestling,1BPoorpreseason forConchsHome opener Friday with ChampagnatBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL Web extrasCheck out even more sports at www.KeysNet.com, including:The tennis Conchs of Key West High split with St. Brendan.An only-in-the-Keys sports challenge,the Conch-Fit, is Saturday in Islamorada.

In collaboration with Congregation Bnai Zion, the theater at 416 Eaton St. presents Re-emerging: The Jews of Nigeria. Its the story of black African Igbo people living in southeast Nigeria. Filmmaker Jeff Lierberman will introduce the film and answer questions following the screening.When the Internet was introduced into rural areas of southeast Nigeria, it opened the eyes of a few young Igbo about their heritage and began answering some difficult questions of identity.For one young man, Shmuel (who was then called Samuel), the nagging question he wanted answered was whether there was any truth to the long-told lore that the Igbo people were once Jews. He began by comparing Hebrew traditions to Igbo traditions, and what he found astounded him. The similarities were so convincing that it sent him off on a journey in the quest to find other Igbo who might be practicing Judaism.Tickets are $8 for Tropic members and $11 for general admission. For more information and the exact screening time (still being set at press time), visit www.tropiccinema.com .The film tells the story of Nigerian JewsFILMThe Internet opened the curiosity of an Igbo boy who wanted to know more about his Jewish roots.

My goal was simple a weeknight-friendly pork dish that was all about stickysweet-savory deliciousness. Neither take-out nor heavy lifting would be allowed, and versatility was a must.The solution called for something that could marinate all day or even all night and all day. That way I could prep it the night before, pop it in the refrigerator to get yummy, and ignore it until dinner the following night.This required a bit of a balancing act. The marinade would need to be tangy and slightly acidic, but not so acidic that it toughened the pork during what could amount to a 24-hour bath. It also needed to be easy. I was willing to do nothing more than dump all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl, stir, then dump in the meat. Relying on mostly Asian-inspired ingredients made that easy. Most pack big flavor and can be combined with ease. I also wanted a sauce for serving with the finished pork, but I didnt want to break out more ingredients to make that happen. That turned out to be an easy fix. All I needed to do was boil down the marinade on the stovetop while the pork cooked. Instant and easy sticky sauce. Finally, the versatility. My favorite recipes are those that arent fussy about which cut of meat I use. Because sometimes I have pork chops, sometimes I have tenderloin. Sometimes I even just have chicken. Any of the above will work nicely in this recipe. If you use chicken, opt for boneless, skinless chicken thighs; they hold up to basic roasting better without drying out. What you need:Half a cup red wine.Half a cup low-sodium soy sauce.Quarter cup mirin.Quarter cup packed brown sugar.Two tablespoons rice vinegar.Tablespoon vegetable or canola oil.Teaspoon hot sauce.Half a teaspoon liquid smoke.Teaspoon dry ground ginger.Teaspoon garlic powder.Six boneless pork chopsCooked rice, to serve (optional).In a large bowl, whisk together the wine, soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, vinegar, oil, hot sauce, liquid smoke, ginger and garlic powder. Add the pork chops, turning them with a fork to ensure all of the meat is coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least several hours, or up to 24 hours.When ready to cook, heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then set a wire rack over it. Coat the rack with cooking spray. Arrange the pork chops on the rack. Reserve the marinade. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until starting to brown and the chops reach 145 degrees at the center. Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high. Cook for 15 minutes, or until slightly reduced and thickened. Set aside. Once the pork has cooked, transfer it to a serving plate. Drizzle the hot marinade over it. Serve immediately, over rice if desired.
