If no agreement is in place by March 1, the ofttalked-about sequestration kicks in $1.2 trillion in across-the-board government spending cuts over the next 10 years. One of the ways to achieve these reductions is unpaid furlough days for federal employees. This means that the 600 non-military workers connected with Naval Air Station Key West would have to take 22 days off without pay between the beginning of April and October. Since the military is the largest employer in Monroe County, the pay cuts would almost certainly have a ripple effect on the surrounding community.The base is very important to us, especially this time of year, Key West Mayor Craig Cates said. Obviously, this would affect us.Military personnel are not subject to the furloughs, so the air stations 1,600 activeduty service members would not be directly impacted by sequestration. But there would be noticeably fewer Navy personnel traveling to the Southernmost City for training, NAS Key West spokeswoman Trice Denny said. NAS Key Wests forte is airto-air combat training, and the Navy is looking to cut inflight training by about 44 percent, according to a Navy document made available to the Keynoter This also would mean less money flowing into the local economy, Denny said. The two main points of how sequestration will impact the area are the anticipation of civilian employees being affected by furloughs and less training being done in Key West, she said. MSNBC reported that Adm. Mark Ferguson, vice chief of naval operations, supplied some specifics for the Senate Armed Services Committee: We [will] shut down four air wings on March 1. After 90 days, those pilots lose their certification, and now it takes six to nine months to retrain them at a much higher cost. He also said the Navy would need to cancel deployments, defer maintenance on ships and aircraft, and suspend most non-deployed operations, such as training.Whether any of those four air wings train in the Keys couldnt be determined Friday.But Denny said that currently, NAS Key West is hosting six fighter squadrons for training, plus a civilian one to play the bad guy. The six military squadrons comprise around 700 people pilots and crew members, she said.The Keys and South Florida economies wouldUnpaid federal furloughs likely to trickle down to the economyBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keyreporter.com County deals blow to zip lineAvocal group of zip-line opponents won a victory Wednesday when the Monroe County Commission denied an extension of an $85,000 grant meant to help fund Crane Point Hammocks proposed tourist attraction.The commission did so after a stream of speakers took to the podium at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo, arguing that a zip-line course isnt appropriate for a rare hardwood hammock that is crucial habitat for whitecrowned pigeons and that it would negatively impact other wildlife and habitat there.Crane Point says the zip line would cost $1.1 million. Of that, $735,000 would come from a Community Development Block Grant if the attraction creates 21 full-time jobs for a year. Otherwise, the city of Marathon, which secured the grant, would have to pay back to the state $35,000 per job not created. The rest of the money would come through other financing.Wednesday, several speakers criticized what they said is lack of transparency on behalf of the nonprofit Crane Point board of directors about the project. Deb Curlee cited the boards unwillingness to give her copies of the organizations bylaws.Based on the lack of transparency displayed, I request [the commission] deny their request for extension, she said.Jeff Smith, chairman of Crane Points nonprofit board, told the Keynoter Curlee was not a Crane Point member when she requested bylaws.She did join the organization and we complied and gave her the bylaws, he said.Marathon resident Ed Davidson, a former president of Florida Audubon, reiterated concerns with expected visitor numbers Crane Point says 16,000 zipline riders the first year being accurate.These are well-intentioned people who dont know what theyre talking about, he said, adding that no credible wildlife expert would endorse people shrieking and gliding through the canopy.The only person to speak on behalf of Crane Point was board member Norval Smith, who spoke only briefly and offered to answer questions.Nobody asked us any questions, Smith said. Then the opponents rose with their comments and we were not asked nor given any opportunity to rebut. Smith indicated the denial came as a surprise since the Tourist Development Council and its Middle Keys District Advisory Committee supported the original grant.

Even though the $91 million pipeline is part of the village of Islamoradas centralized wastewater treatment system, Tavernier Creek is in unincorporated Monroe County. The county has had a controversial land-use policy in place since 2001 not to issue permits for new utility projects in the Coastal Barrier Resource System, which was created to protect sensitive environment. Fallout from the policy interpretation has resulted in residents along parts of County Road 905 unable to get permits to connect to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment Districts system and treatment plant at mile marker 100.5. It is also partly why residents of No Name Key rely on generators and solar power and cant connect to Keys Energy Servicesmain power grid.Coastal Barrier Resource System rears its headISLAMORADASee Lockdown,2ASee Village,2ABy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keyreporter.com

Monroe County Sheriffs Office Capt. Chad Scibilia cleared the air with Trailerama owners Wednesday after the Keynoter reported that morning that Sheriff Rick Ramsay wants a fence installed to separate a portion of the Marathon mobile-home park from 15th Street.Our purpose is not to clean up Trailerama; its a privately owned piece of property, Scibilia said. Our focus is that were receiving complaints from citizens not even willing to drive down 15th at night because they think its unsafe. Perception is reality. If residents dont feel safe because of the cosmetic appearance, thats something we want to address.But he did say there is no crime problem at the park.Still, City Councilwoman Ginger Snead said at the Feb. 12 council meeting that shes uncomfortable driving down 15th Street at night. Burdines and Castaway restaurants are on 15th Street.John Wolfe, owner of Trailerama along with his wife Karen, told the Keynoter he has no problem with installing a fence, especially since Scibilia allayed concerns about being able to move trailers in or out of Trailerama.They said, Well cut the fence if we have to, Wolfe said. Were very supportive of the Sheriffs Office and we think theyve been generally supportive of us. Thats why we were a little taken aback when Ramsay suggested a fence, he said. We dont like problems in our park and we know the Sheriffs Office number when there is one. Trailerama is licensed for 125 trailers and Wolfe said there are about 100 there now with around three people per trailer. The Ocean Breeze Trailer Park is off 15th Street and property manager Ed Kiefer, like John Wolfe, met with Scibilia and a pair of Sheriffs Office sergeants to discuss the 15th Street issue.I am in total agreement with what the city wants to do, Keifer said. We offered to be of any assistance, even though were not directly in their path. We all want 15th Street to enhance and well be a player whatever they need.Ocean Breeze has 52 trailer sites with about 125 people. As far as cosmetics for 15th Street, Scibilia said the Sheriffs Office has been at that for some time. It worked with the city to install noparking signs along the east side of 15th and hopes to do the same on the west side.The Sheriffs Office also has a 15th Street cleanup planned with deputies and city Public Works employees at 10 a.m. March 1. Scibilia said theyll cut brush and clear trash from vacant lots.As for Trailerama specifically, John Wolfe said hes been working the past 18 months to address code issues there, along with any other illegal activity. Wolfe also pointed out that there are no outstanding code complaints with the city after cleanup efforts. Wolfe said concerns with limited access to the park in case of fire or medical emergencies have been cleared up. He said illegal trailers, fences and additions were taken down.Both Trailerama and Ocean Breeze agreed to pay a $14.60 monthly bill for three additional streetlights, two at Trailerama and one at Ocean Breeze, on 15th Street.Ramsay brought up 15th Street on Feb. 12 when telling the City Council his plan to clean up problem areas up and down the Keys.No decision on N-ROGO permitsUnused commercial building-permit allocations built up over recent years should be shared among applicants, Monroe County commissioners said Wednesday.Its not really fair to let one potential project suck up all the development potential in a 100-mile chain of islands, Commissioner Heather Carruthers said during at the commissions Key Largo discussion of whats called N-ROGO the Nonresidential Rate of Growth Ordinance. The complex nature of receiving commercial building-permit allocations in the Florida Keys, coupled with the real-estate crash, resulted in the county building up about 389,000 square feet in unused commercial space the past several years.We recognized were saving this but weve never dealt with how to award it, Growth Management Director Christine Hurley said.Development Review Manager Joe Haberman has been working on a plan to let applicants tap into the bank of unused space. Were kind of inventing the wheel on this bank, Haberman told commissioners. Not a lot of other communities have something like this.Aproposed Rockland Key shopping center would need from 400,000 to 500,000 square feet of buildable space, its developers say.Although Hurley noted the N-ROGO bank is not really all about Rockland Key, many of the comments referenced Rockland Key directly or indirectly.Unless space is allocated by region, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said, One development could gobble up entire accumulated square footage the one [development] were talking about.... It doesnt seem fair to me.Members of the county Planning Commission earlier indicated they prefer seeing the available space split 50-50 between new businesses and existing businesses that want to expand. Barton Smith, an attorney representing Rockland Key property owners not in the planned center, said his clients are concerned. The one development would bankrupt the entire bank, and then some, he said.Mayor George Neugent said while N-ROGO helped stem rampant development, it may be time to replace it with design guidelines or other lessrestrictive limits on building.Carruthers said N-ROGO may have prevented the Keys from turning into one huge strip mall from Cow Key to the Stretch, and she was not ready to throw it away without alternative rules in place. No vote was taken, and the issue returned to planning staff.In other issues Wednesday, the County Commission:Heard that a contractaward lawsuit against the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority for the countys Lower Keys sewer projects was rejected by Circuit Court Judge David Audlin. The Aqueduct Authority plans to break ground on the construction at 2 p.m. Monday at the Ramrod Key pump station, mile marker 27.5 oceanside. Overall, the so-called Cudjoe Regional system will take in around 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key. Overall worth of the construction contracts is $137 million.Commission leans against Rockland getting them allChristine Hurley, director of the countys Growth Management Division, said in an e-mail Thursday that she received an e-mail from County Commissioner David Rices office on Tuesday regarding the possible Coastal Barrier Resource System roadblocks with the Islamorada sewer project. Hurley said her office is still evaluating the issue. Islamorada Village Manager Ed Koconis was out of state this week and did not return a message seeking his interpretation of the matter.Richard Crow, with Reynolds Water Islamorada, the engineering company overseeing the pipeline project, said his team would need a few days to go over the new information.County Mayor George Neugent called for a special Tuesday meeting of the County Commission to discuss all projects impacted by the countys Coastal Barrier Resource System policy.Were more than likely to discuss [the Islamorada pipeline project] at Tuesdays meeting for sure, Neugent said Friday. The meeting is at the Marathon Government Center, mile marker 48.5 bayside and is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.Neugent said the county is denying residents access to needed services by continuing its policy regarding the Coastal Barrier Resources System.The county has jumped out of its jurisdiction to exclude utilities on and through the CBRS, he said. I hope the commonsense side will prevail in our discussions.

Additionally, the impact to local economies boosted by events like air shows and fleet weeks is expected to be significant. The Navy document states sequestration would force the cancellation of shows by the Navys famed Blue Angels acrobatic flying team in Pensacola, Tampa and Jacksonville. Denny said the scheduled March 23 and 24 Blue Angels show in Key West is still on. But sequestration would sink the annual Fleet Week scheduled for April and May in Fort Lauderdale and Tampa Bay later in the year, according to the document. Since the Navy is expected to save about $28 million by canceling the events, the economic losses to the two cities is significant.Chaz Adams, spokesman for the city of Fort Lauderdale, did not return several phone calls seeking comment about the potential budget impacts to the area.The furloughs and connected economic fallout in the Keys wouldnt be relegated just to the Navy. Just about all federal agencies, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Customs and Border Protection, which are both active in the Keys, would be affected.Impacts approachFrom Sequester,1A Harold Wheeler told the Keynoter only the Middle Keys DAC approved the extension it was not heard by the full TDC. Commissioner Heather Carruthers opposed extending the grant after public testimony. She said she was surprised the TDC accepted the extension request with no explanation of what the problem was. Its insulting there is no information. We need more adequate backup and thats not what were seeing, she said. Commissioner Danny Kolhage said he was prepared to support the extension but took issue with the amount of time the project has taken. That in itself questions the viability of the project. No one has come forward with progress; there is no data, he said.The commission approved the original grant in May 2011 and the first extension in April last year. The second extension would have run through March 31, 2014.Despite the stern wording, Crane Point was encouraged to reapply for a TDC grant during the current funding cycle. Smith said the group has a board meeting today. What we can say is we dont believe there is any project in Marathon that has been more transparent and fully vetted, he said. We respect [the opponents] position, but in the meantime we feel this is a responsible solution to our longtime viability. The commission vote to deny the TDC extension was unanimous.Staff writer Kevin Wadlow contributed to this report.There is no dataFrom Zip line,1Adoors, Henriquez said. Any students in the halls are brought into the nearest classroom.Key West police got a call at 8:53 a.m. after a student witnessed other students displaying the replica gun, department spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. The witness called her parent, who in turn called police, Crean said. Airsoft guns look like genuine bullet-shooting guns but fire plastic pellets through either a spring-lock device or compressed air. Theyre meant to look real but be non-lethal. The one found at HOB Thursday was a replica .45caliber automatic handgun.While we may have preferred a different chain of communication, the important thing is that the student did speak up, Superintendent Mark Porter said.He added that the student who had [the gun] said he was simply bringing it to school to return it to his friend, another student. HOB is undergoing a $38 million rebuild, including the addition of an elementary school wing. The middle school portion of the school is open to students.Alert is e-mailedFrom Lockdown,1A This is the airsoft gun confiscated from Horace OBryant Middle School Thursday morning. 15th Street getting more attentionCleanups are part of overall planBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON COUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com KEYSNET.COM

With compromise among neighbors unreached and suggested solutions uncertain, Monroe County commissioners eventually agreed with Upper Keys board member Sylvia Murphy on Wednesday to call off a proposed weekend-and-holiday closing for the lot off mile marker 95. Let things go back to the way they were, said Murphy, who took her young daughter swimming at the park more than five decades ago. I know this little beach has been used for more than 60 years.The 60-foot-wide parcel off Bay Drive, set amid subdivision homes, is actually a platted road easement that has been fenced and improved by Monroe County as an informal, unnamed park open from 7:30 a.m. to sunset. Parking is extremely limited and there are no bathrooms.Two neighbors of the park said Wednesday that weekend visitors create noise and pollution, park illegally and sometimes trespass. Ive seen people going to the bathroom along my fence, said Raul Medina. Whos going to help me keep people out of my pool?Ive been dealing with problems on this property for years, said David Asdourian. In the last 10 years its gotten quite bad.... As a homeowner, I should not be required to police the property.But other residents of the area said the land provides their only swimming access to the bay and objected to closing it when most people are off work. The larger Sunset Point Park nearby has parking and a boat ramp, but no beach. The Bay Drive park is our only public access to the water, resident Tamara Green said, and we dont want any further closure of public access.Ive used it for years, said Lucy Given. There are some problems but nothing that enforcement on uses of the property could not handle.This is really about some homeowners who feel they are being invaded by noncounty residents, said Sue Heim, who travels about a half-mile to visit the park. They dont want to share the view or the air there. Some neighborhood residents have access to a private homeowners bayfront park, adjacent to the county lot. Green said there are 23 drylot homes in the community that do not qualify to use the private park. Commissioner Heather Carruthers wondered if there was another way around this, to call it a residents park that discourages out-ofcounty visitor use. County Attorney Bob Shillinger demurred, Im not prepared to say you can do that. In response to a question, the attorney said trying to lease the site to a neighborhood group could be challenged and may conflict with existing policy. Decades ago, Monroe County passed an ordinance saying it would not abandon ownership of any road that ends at the waters edge in order to ensure public access.KEY LARGOBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com2 more charged with illegal fish collectingFor the second time in weeks, federal prosecutors ordered the arrest of people for illegally taking live sharks out of the Florida Keys.Two officials of Idaho Aquarium Inc. in Boise were indicted on federal charges of conspiracy and illegally purchasing four spotted eagle rays and two lemon sharks, all protected species and all from Keys waters. Ammon Covino, 39, president of Idaho Aquarium, and corporate secretary Christopher Conk, 40, were arraigned Thursday in Idaho and ordered to appear in U.S. District Court in Key West on March 15.The Idaho Aquarium is a display facility covering 10,000 square feet operating in a converted Boise warehouse.Listed as a nonprofit educational center, the aquarium opened in late 2011. It claims to offer over 250 different species of animals and marine life for the $9 adult admission fee. The indictment from November was unsealed Thursday. On Feb. 7, the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami unsealed a separate indictment against two Broward County aquarium suppliers. They were charged with conspiracy to acquire and resell juvenile nurse sharks without a required permit, and angelfish larger than the maximum size allowed. Those fish from the Keys allegedly were sold to a Michigan buyer.While both cases relate to the marine living resources of the Florida Keys and involve violations of the Lacey Act, predicated in part on [Florida law], there is no public record material to suggest there is any other relationship between the cases, said Alicia Valle, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorneys Office.In the indictment against Idaho Aquarium and its officials, prosecutor Thomas Watts-Fitzgerald wrote that the defendants knowingly conspired with fish collectors in the Keys to have the rays and sharks captured without permits and shipped north.After being offered $1,250 for each live eagle ray, an unnamed fish collector eventually told Covino that permits needed to take the rays could not be obtained. Covino reportedly answered, Just start doing it.... Who gives a expletive.The collector reportedly shipped three eagle rays in May 2012 and another in June 2012. All were sent to Covino at the Idaho Aquarium. Asecond unnamed collector reportedly was solicited by Conk in June for two lemon sharks. The collector said no capture permits for lemon sharks are being issued so the transaction would have to be conducted on the down low, the indictment says. The lemon sharks were purchased for $650 each and sent to Idaho in October. for more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .CRIME FRONTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comAudlin: No City Electric trespassThe idea of a commercial electricity-free No Name Key appears to be slowly but surely slipping by the wayside.Opponents of commercial power were dealt what could be a final blow Thursday when Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin dismissed a county claim that power lines run by Keys Energy Services trespass on county aerial easements on No Name.Audlin cited a Feb. 6 Third District Court of Appeal ruling in his order, which upheld a decision Audlin made saying that the state Public Service Commission has jurisdiction over electrifying the 1,000-acre island.The court finds that the issues in this case are sufficiently related to the regulation and planning of electrical generation and transmission lines, [and] that the issues should first be addressed and determined by the PSC, Audlin wrote. No Name homeowners have been embroiled in a decades-long battle over commercial electricity on the island. Currently, the 43 homeowners are powered by solar and/or generators.Audlins Thursday decision came just days prior to a scheduled special County Commission meeting to discuss No Name Key and issues relating to the federal Coastal Barrier Resources Act.Congress enacted the Coastal Barrier Resources Act in 1982 to protect coastal habitats, and part of No Name not the entire island is included. The county in 2001 created a coastal barrier overlay district prohibiting utilities in such areas. After the Feb. 6 Third DCAruling, a majority of commission members said they would not support an appeal over jurisdiction to the state Supreme Court. Assistant County Attorney Derek Howard said for that reason, he wont recommend appealing Thursdays ruling to the Third DCA.Were not recommending the decision be appealed to the Third District. If the board wants to continue litigating these issues, our recommendation would be to take this to the PSC. Thats really our only option, he said.If thats the case, its widely believed the PSC would rule in favor of commercial power on No Name. Keys Energy has long held that the PSC requires it to provide power to any customers seeking it within its service territory. Thats why it finally installed the poles last year at the request of the property owners association. The owners paid $650,000 to the utility for the work.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEY

Do they think the residents of Marathon are stupid? Just look at who gets through the Marathon bureaucracy without any difficulty, and then look at the normal person to where they have obstacles thrown into the mix and any hindrance one can imagine to overcome.One recent change in staff is as deceitful and devious as can be. The former building official defended the city and laws against the coercive pressure of those in authority to approve and acquiesce to matters that were illegal or not within the rules or regulations. The building official was then forced out by the city manager, who was yielding to demands of those over the managers decision.Then the building official was replaced by a person without one credential to be a building official. The newly hired building official was a contractor for the former county mayors home in Key Colony Beach and also the contractor for the newest restaurant, beside Marathon Liquors and Deli.What a charade and a mockery has been made for the residents of Marathon to transact business that should be transparent.Other administrative staff such as planning, code, public works, utilities, personnel and the clerks office are so fearful of the threats and coercive posturing of those in authority that they cannot say no to what is not right and legal but be yes people and find ways to do as they are told to come up with ways to circumvent and get around the rules. The tip of the iceberg, as they say, is now being exposed and the residents of Marathon need to find the fortitude and moral fiber to address this situation, or the treachery and disloyalty to the residents will continue to the point where outside authority must intervene to safeguard the city to be successful and transparently operational into the future.Greg Hill MarathonClean out City HallWhat in the world is going on? The FBI questions Marathon City Council members and the council members bring in their own attorneys during the questioning? This is nuts. Where there is smoke, there is fire. Indictments to follow? Where else is this happening? Not even in Miami, where you would expect it. Just go to prove that uninformed Marathon residents can be manipulated. Time for a complete housecleaning, that is, unless the feds dont do it first. Kevin Thurman MarathonNew library,same siteWhile I applaud some county officialsdesire to build a new library in Marathon, I question the wisdom of making it part of Marathon City Hall. The homeless are a part of the Marathon library family. They inhabit the library when it is open, sleep there and use their computers outside when the library is closed. The library staff is incredibly good to them, as it is to the other patrons. I learned of the Marathon Community Parks zero-tolerance policy toward the homeless when Billy, who is the library guard dog, was kicked out of the park on his birthday for rude behavior. I believe Billy was arrested for being drunk and disorderly and has been told he will be arrested if he so much as steps onto the park grounds again. Jimmy Schmidt, the parks director, is not happy about this policy. I believe it is unconstitutional and have discussed it with the city attorney, John Herin. How well do you think the homeless and the city government will mix in a combined city halllibrary? Alawsuit seems inevitable. Most people think it would be a mistake to move the library away from the children and teachers at Stanley Switlik Elementary School, as well as away from the boating community and the Sheriffs Office substation. Please build us a new library close to Stanley Switlik, the boating community and the Sheriffs Office substation. Thank you for your interest and support for this wonderful community asset. Jane Marter MarathonProposed accounting standards could end up costing taxpayers to shore up government plansIt used to be wise advice to hold onto your wallet whenever the Legislature is in session. In Florida, since lawmakers meet only for two months a year (this year starting March 5), that might seem to provide some protection from runaway money grabs. Not so. On Wednesday, the House Government Operations Subcommittee passed out a bill that would impose tough new standards on cities and pension plans for municipal workers. Lawmakers want more conservative accounting used, which critics warn could cost city taxpayers more money to fund pension funds beyond the current standards. The issue over employee pension plans and whether theyre underfunded has been a hot topic in the Keys. The Key West City Commission wrestled last fall with the question during budget meetings. At the time, Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan said the citys pension structure is not sustainable. Contributions to police and fire department pension funds represent $2.7 million or 28 percent of the payroll for those Key West departments. Pension contributions for the general employee fund (those not represented by unions) cost Key West taxpayers another $1 million. In the city of Marathon, general employees contribute to their own defined-contribution plan, according to City Manager Roger Hernstadt. Thats a payas-you-go system so its never going to be underfunded. Fears over that very thing finding municipal pension plans underfunded may be driving the debate in Tallahassee, where the committee vote was 8-3 on strictly party lines. State Rep. Irv Slosberg (D-Boca Raton) was critical of committee Republicans, saying they overstated the extent of the problem in Florida, which is generally considered to have well-funded plans. This is going to be the weapon that is used to prove that things are not financially sound ... so that you can therefore take away the defined benefit plans of my members, said Lisa Henning with the Fraternal Order of Police. Ironically, unions found themselves with an unusual ally in the House debate. Florida League of Cities lobbyist Kraig Conn told the News Service of Florida that the bill passed in committee amounts to an unfunded mandate. Others note that Republican lawmakers are pushing for separate legislation that would put new state workers into 401(k)-style defined contribution plans, similar to those found in private industry, eliminating pensions. Regardless of which side wins the debate, Florida taxpayers are ultimately on the hook if government employee pension funds run out of money. At this stage, its hard to know whose pocket is about to be picked. Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThe library is popular for not only books and periodicals but those who dont have home computers.The city of Marathon and Monroe County have had initial talks about building a new library combined with a city hall at 98th Street and U.S.1.The currently library is between 30th and 35th streets.District gets poorauditIn keeping with a fouryear trend, the Monroe County School District on Wednesday received yet another poor financial and operational audit from the Florida Auditor Generals Office in Tallahassee. That despite clear and stern direction this time last year from the School Board charging district Finance Director Ken Gentile with resolving the audit findings by the end of fiscal year 2011-12 on June 30.The latest audit, which the district has a month to respond to prior to becoming final, lists one significant deficiency, 12 additional matters and five federal awards findings.The significant deficiency is financial reporting procedures could be improved to ensure that transactions and note disclosures are properly reported. Thats essentially a criticism of the districts bookkeeping.Im not happy with what I saw, board member John Dick said Friday. We cant continue like this. Enough is enough. If this was private industry, things wouldve been changed a long time ago.Other highlights include:District procedures did not always ensure that minutes for meetings were appropriately maintained and timely approved, contrary to Sunshine Law, which governs governmental transparency and public records.Payroll processing procedures could be enhanced to ensure that employee work time is appropriately documented and approved, accurately recorded and not in conflict with other employment.Controls over the review and approval of construction contract change orders could be improved. That last one has been a sore spot as of late, particularly with School Board member Ed Davidson. Hes slammed district administrators, contractors and construction managers working on a $38 million rebuild of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West. Specifically, Davidson alleged that administrators violated board policy by not bringing change orders in excess of $25,000 to the board for approval. That resulted in the board retroactively approving several lineitem expenditures. On the payroll finding, the Auditor Generals Office reports that time records for nine employees didnt include arrival or departure times, time records for 13 employees were not signed by the employee, and time records for 20 employees did not include the signature of employees supervisor or other evidence of review or approval.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSCops: Man tries to scam $22,000ATavernier man accused of trying to deposit $22,000 in counterfeit checks into his bank account also might have illegally accessed part of the Monroe Countys Sheriffs Offices secure computer network. Cole Peacock, 21, spontaneously uttered to a detective investigating the alleged bank fraud Tuesday that he had accessed the Sheriffs Office dispatch program and a system called the Driver and Vehicle Identification Device, or DAVID.While speaking to Peacock, it appeared that he was very well versed in computers. He claimed to have lots of knowledge, and appeared to be a hacker, Detective Francisco Gaete wrote in his arrest affidavit. After speaking to Peacock, I was able to determine that his knowledge of computers was beyond my comprehension.Peacock faces felony grand theft, fraud, computer hacking and counterfeit charges. At press time Thursday he was being held in the Plantation Key jail on a $26,000 bond. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said investigators have no evidence Peacock was telling the truth about the alleged hacking. When detectives asked him to show them how he got into the system, Herrin said Peacock couldnt do it. Detectives contacted the U.S. Secret Service to help in the investigation of the counterfeit checks, according Gaetes report. Gaete said Peacock deposited three fraudulent checks in his personal account at the Community Bank branch at mile marker 91.3 on Feb. 8 for the amounts of $8,400, $7,200 and $6,400, respectively. All the checks were from a company called Data Point Systems. The companys address is the same as Peacocks home on Azalea Street in Tavernier, Herrin said. Peacock told Gaete that he worked for Data Point Systems and he is authorized to write himself checks. After Gaete told him the account numbers on the checks were bogus, Peacock said that is how they arrived in the mail and that he usually doesnt check the account number on the checks.21-year-old says he hacked copscomputersBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keyreporter.comCRIME FRONT PEACOCK

Raschein firm on tax exemptionHaving thrown her support behind a bill that would erase an $11.5 million tax lien on U.S. Navy housing, state Rep. Holly Raschein, Republican from Key Largo, appears poised to take on the city of Key West, Monroe County Property Appraisers Office and, to some extent, her own constituency. In 2007, the Navy transferred ownership of 890 housing units to Southeast Housing LLC, a division of Balfour Beatty Communities.Last year, based on the switch from federal to private ownership, then-Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum reversed an earlier decision to grant a tax exemption to those properties and filed the lien seeking back taxes, penalties and interest.Tuesday, the state House Veteran and Military Affairs committee, on which Raschein sits, passed a bill, 13-0, exempting such military-related housing statewide from property taxes retroactive to 2007. The next stops are the Finance and Tax Subcommittee, then the Economic Affairs Committee before the March 5 opening of the two-month legislative session. The whole reason for the exemption is supporting military families, Raschein said Thursday. The bottom line is, weve got to provide quality housing for military families. Therere some real concerns in Key West over this ... and I feel like I need to vote no but a vote no is a vote against military housing. Rep. Jimmy Patronis (RPanama City) sponsored the House Bill and Sen. John Thrasher (R-St. Augustine) its Senate companion. At the Wednesday Key West City Commission meeting, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley directed City Attorney Shawn Smith to draft a resolution opposing the exemption bills, which Weekley called ridiculous. And our representative is sitting there and supporting it, he said. I support military families also but remember: The people that are living there arent military. Hes referring to the Peary Court neighborhood in his District 1, which is open to non-military renters and in the process of being sold to a private developer for a rumored $30 million-plus.There are a combined 890 military houses in Key West at Peary Court, Sigsbee Park, Truman Annex, Trumbo Point and the Branch Medical Clinic on South Roosevelt Boulevard.Raschein said shes considering proposing an amendment that would limit the exemption to houses actually occupied by military families.Property Appraiser Scott Russell said hes content to let the legal process play out and discuss the issue with other property appraisers in affected areas.We believe that statutorily, Southeast owns the buildings and improvements and they are not tax exempt, he said.She wants lien on military housing liftedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMILITARY KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,February 23,2013 2059 Overseas Highway Marathon305.743.6341www.MarathonBoatYard.com Test Rides for Qualified Buyers Factory Reps and Repower Specialists On Site IN WATER DEMO DAYSATURDAY, MARCH 2NDFROM 9 AM TO 4 PM2013 INVENTORY ON THE DOCK Hotdogs, Hamburgers & Soda ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CAREER?Regan Insurance has a position available for Experienced, Licensed 220 Commercial Account Manager for Service and Marketing Bond Knowledge helpful.

The sparsely attended session at the Marathon firehouse was held to discuss 16 different design points related to the new building.There was little disagreement on the various items, as the council agreed to an elevated two-story structure with a significant landscape buffer and increased office space for city staff. It would be roughly 15,000 square feet and replace trailers at 98th Street and U.S. 1 now housing government offices.John Bartus, chairman of the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce board, spoke for a new city hall but against a conference center.Its past time for the city to conduct its business in a beautiful, permanent building, he said. But Bartus raised several concerns with the cost of building, maintaining and operating a large-scale room for events.Amajority of public convention centers dont operate in the black. Is the city ready to take on the expense? he said.But several council members immediately spoke in favor of a larger room, which will double as council chambers. I dont think its a bad use of city money to have an area to be used as more than a meeting space, Councilwoman Ginger Snead said. Mayor Mike Cinque said hes uncomfortable with the term convention center.I envision a community hall, something that can be used for events, he said, adding the enterprise value to the community could be high.I really think we should look at this thing long term. We have a pretty good bite at the apple. I dont think its ever going to be any cheaper to do this, Councilman Rich Keating said. Councilman Dick Ramsay voted in favor of the 200-person layout, but cautioned the council to be financially responsible. He said he wants the citys architect to do a flexible design that could be scaled down if necessary. Ask him to design it in such a way that when we see the end number, we can decide whether we can afford it, he said. Ramsay was also the only council member to argue against an elevated building and balconies because of the potential added cost. The council several times mentioned $6 million as the high end of what it might spend on a city hall. Finance Director Peter Rosasco told the Keynoter thats because $6 million could be added to an outstanding $5 million loan without impacting the citys annual debt. The city borrowed a $10 million note in 2004 at 4.2 percent and some of that was used for the property where theyre going to build city hall now. Its been paid down to $5 million, he said. Since the capital infrastructure tax got extended, we can take out a 15-year loan of $11 million and have exactly the same annual debt service. One item not discussed is the possibility of adding a new Monroe County-run library to the city-hall design to replace the current Marathon library, which is old and needs work. County Engineering Division Director Kevin Wilson was on hand but did not speak. Wilson told the Keynoter that theres more time to think about it, but that a two-story building on stilts could kill any talk of combining the two projects. If they decided to go with a two-story building on stilts, were probably done, he said. Wilson said the existing library near mile marker 48.5 is 7,200 square feet, and that county Libraries Director Norma Kula told him 10,000 to 12,000 square feet would be optimal for a new one. The elevated building provides for expansion capabilities and that could include a collaboration with the county, City Manager Roger Hernstadt said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCity: No to Mallory Square eateryThe Key West City Commission on Wednesday voted down a proposal to build a two-story restaurant on iconic Mallory Square. The design, proposed by restaurateur Joe Walsh, calls for a building 33 feet tall, eight feet more than the citys 25-foot limit in the historic Old Town district. The commission voted 52 against, with commissioners Mark Rossi and Tony Yaniz in favor. Walsh, who owns several restaurants in Key West including Fogartys and Mangoes on Duval Street, said his goal is to revitalize the western section of Mallory Square. The parcel in question contains a defunct outdoor pizza restaurant, welcome center and historic cable hut that formerly held telephone lines connecting Key West to Cuba. Walsh called the area an open-air homeless shelter. Our whole goal for years here is to have an open area, a walkway down the waterfront, Mayor Craig Cates said. Then we have this building here. It really blocks it up. Yaniz made City Attorney Shawn Smith uncomfortable by suggesting not allowing Walsh to build and open a restaurant has the effect of not allowing a business to compete. Youre talking monopoly. I think your job is to focus on the land development regulations, Smith countered. I would avoid any discussion with respect to favoring one particular business over another. Walsh won a city-initiated bid process back in 2010. Since then, the Westin Resort and Marina, adjacent to the proposed restaurant, had sued over the city Planning Board allowing the design. The city won the case.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST

Im gonna beat him, said Coral Shores High senior Will Ismer, referring to the ConchsJack Gruba. Gruba well-muscled with a movie-star visage had begun his junior season strong and was less than six feet from the school shot-put record and 14 feet shy of the discus mark. Anatural, Key West coach Rick Ridenour called him. He expects to be successful in everything he does. Ismer 6 feet 10, bearded and with a likeable air of nonchalance towered over Gruba and the other competitors, including Coral ShoresChris Perez, a bulky wrestler who admitted, This is my second time doing this. The shot put was first, and for that, Gruba put on special Nike lime-soled shoes. They let you glide around, he said. Ismer eschewed special shoes and wore cargo shorts instead of a green uniform.Conchs dominate Key West meetBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP TRACK AND FIELD Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West Highs Jack Gruba goes into his windup before throwing the discus Thursday.

They will play Royal Palm Beach at 7:30 tonight at Rex Weech Field.Miller used a fastball and a curve to stymie the Sabres, who dropped to 0-4. His approach to the game was outstanding, said coach Miguel Menendez, adding that he could see the intensity in Miller for days before the game.Millers size 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds belies his power at the plate. He may not look the part, but he is extremely strong and knows how to use his lower body to really drive the ball, Menendez said. And he has tremendous bat speed.

Chris OBerry threw four shutout innings with six strikeouts in the 11-1 win over ICS rival Princeton Christian. Alot of our guys played a good game, head coach Bruce Davis said. We got on base, did a lot of pushing. Were going to be very aggressive on the bases. Senior catcher Dylan Ayres and OBerry each had two hits against Princeton. Sophomore infielder Tucker Wood, who closed out the game on the mound, also had two hits. Freshmen infielder Steve Dostaler ripped a triple and came home to score on a Panther error on the play.

The girls defeated Somerset Academy, 17-0, on Tuesday; lost to perennial state power Westminster Christian School, 10-0 on Wednesday; and beat Keys Gate Charter, 15-0 on Thursday. The 2-1 trip upped Marathons record to 4-3. The Dolphins dominated Tuesday and Thursday, earning mercy-rule victories in three innings in both games. Wednesday was a different story, though. Were just trying to get better. If we can limit errors I think well be better because we can definitely hit the ball, coach Bob Roney said. On Tuesday, the Dolphins scored four runs in the first inning, five in the second and eight in the third to easily defeat Somerset. Jordan Roney pitched the first inning, striking out all three batters on three pitches each. Abi Connell threw the last two innings. Roney was 3-for-4 at the plate, while Taylor Konrath and Sacha Olivera each hit home runs. On Wednesday, the Dolphins played well early and committed just two errors against the Warriors.

His first heave of the 12pound gold ball went 38 feet, 9 inches and landed with a plunk in the close-cropped grass. But Gruba, whose first effort was 38-4, came back with a 39.9 and a 39.2 to win, although he was short of his 41-foot personal best. The discus was where Gruba would shine. His first toss sailed 132 feet, 9 inches, farther than he had ever thrown, even in practice. Ismer popped one up that landed 106 feet away. Grubas second toss went 127-11, and Ismer scratched on his next attempt. He would not beat Gruba. Terrible, he said of his day, but with a smile.Gruba got set for his final try. He crouched in the ring away from the landing field, went into an elaborate windup, spun 360 degrees, spun another 180 and released the 2.2-pound Orange Flyer discus of indeterminable age with a guttural cry.Out it flew, high and to the right, like a Frisbee, until it landed 142 feet, 5 inches away two inches short of the school record set by Doug Meeker in 2000. Ridenour, the coach, was thrilled, as was Grubas mother, who had watched from a chair in the shade. I was just going all out, Gruba said. I was getting myself angry and pumping myself up. Abit later, he and Ismer, runners too, were together again, walking down the track toward another event.Overall, the Key West boys defeated the Hurricanes, 104-34, and the Conch girls won, 103-26.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,February 23,2013 The Marathon Garden Clubs annual House & Garden Tour is scheduled Mar. 1-3. And this year, it has an added attraction with five well-known artists contributing to a special gallery show and reception with food and music. Three waterfront homes will be on the tour, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 2. Tickets cost $25 per person and bus transportation from the Garden Club is included to one of the estates. This years portfolio of gardens and lush homes include a Tuscan-inspired home, a Bali-style tropical rainforest garden and a 4.5acre oceanfront estate known as Bait Shack. Its no shack, as previous tours have discovered. Aprivate drive guides entry through a canopy of native hammock, past waterfalls, streams and ponds into an open vista of a palm-lined drive leading to the main house. Inside, DAsign Source has installed rich, dark mahogany woodwork and South Seas dcor. The master suite harbors a massive coral stone wall in the bath that surrounds a double showerhead accessible from the outdoors. Areplica staircase from the movie Casablanca leads upstairs to a home theatre. The Tuscan-inspired architecture of the second home on this years tour is rather unique for the Keys, featuring a one-story floor plan and lots of openings that overlook an outdoor living area with pool. Plush interiors are decorated in a traditional style, featuring dark woods in furniture and cabinetry. Outside, the gardens feature coral rock-lined pathways and planters that add lots of color to the landscape. The Bali-inspired home, owned by a Marathon artist, has three levels with lots of doors and windows that open onto garden vistas. The home is very open to the outdoors, according to Rosemary Thomas, president of the Marathon Garden Club.The owner and a landscape designer spent more than three years designing and implementing this rainforest garden, she added. The garden looks like its been there for years, yet it has only been there three years.Visitors will also enjoy significant statuary in the gardens and beautiful wrought iron gates. The weekend kicks off with a free reception and live music on Friday, Mar. 1, from 5-8 p.m. at the Garden Club, 5270 Overseas Hwy., Marathon. Light hors doeuvres and wine will be available.

Starting this weekend, you can see the plein art work of artist-in-residence Michele Bryne, who will exhibit works from her Paris collection at The Studios of Key West. Joining her will be Key West local Paul Findlay, best known perhaps as the tennis pro who has helped train generations of enthusiasts. Hes also a skilled photographer who will share his work from France. Combine the two, and you have what TSKWis calling The French Connection. Byrnes work from the City of Light includes scenes captured on the avenues and around the cafes, in soft light and gentle rains.

This is a limited engagement over four nights, Feb. 27 Mar. 2. Bromka, who has performed in prime-time shows, including Will and Grace and Law and Order, brings the show to Key West after touring the country on stage. The Record-Review in Westchester County, NY said of her performance: a fascinating evening, laced with insight, emotion and humor . brilliant acting. Written by Eric H. Weinberger with Bromka, the play re-imagines the three women who suddenly find themselves as celebrities. Its a behind-the-scenes look at Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. Among the insights offered up, Pat Nixons take that being first lady is the hardest unpaid job in the world. Bromka brings 30 years of experience in film, television, Broadway and offBroadway to the role. Shes appeared as the mom in Uncle Buck with John Candy, as Stella in Days of Our Lives, and on E.R., The Sopranos, and Law and Order. The inspiration for Tea for Three came after Bromka starred opposite Rich Little in The Presidents. In that stage production, which she performed across the country and on PBS, Bromka impersonated eight of the most recent first ladies. Spending months poring over videotapes of the women, Bromka said she studied nuances of body language and speech patterns to explore why they moved and spoke as they did.

She adds their personalities drew her further into the research for the role. And I wanted to explode myths. Pat was called Plastic Patin the press, for example, because she was always smiling. Look more closely at her eyes, though. Theres nothing plastic about her. You see the eyes of a private, watchful survivor. Her collaborator, Weinberger, is the author of several off-Broadway plays, including Wandas World, and Class Mothers Hes been nominated for Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,February 23,2013 Frangipani Gallery opens an exhibit of work by two artists, Paul Carmichael and Susann DAntonio. Areception is planned 69 p.m. Friday, Mar. 1 at the gallery, 1102ADuval St., Key West. DAntonio is showcasing her newest collection, called Five, which features two series of encaustic paintings that focus on woven elements integrated into the wax paintings.The Key West artist has also added a collection of small flower sculptures and a series of rustic gourd masks.Show organizers describe it as an eclectic mix with recurring themes and a cross discipline integration of mixed media.Wings of Paradise, by Florida wildlife photographer Paul Carmichael, focuses on the beautiful birds found in the Florida Keys and in Everglades National Park.For more information, call 296-0440 or visit: www .frangipanigallery.com Gallery on Greene mounts a solo show, Head in the Clouds, starting Saturday, Feb. 23, featuring artist Peter Vey. Veys oil paintings celebrate the everyday landscapes he encounters, from Key Wests narrow lanes, historic cemetery and fiery foliage to the thrilling cacophony of New York Citys skylines, according to Nance Frank, gallery director. Some of the scenes of New York, like the snow scene in Central Park, and the skyline from the South Street Seaport are different subjects for him in this show, Frank says. Veys strong color palette has captured such Key West scenes as pastel shetters on white, wooden houses. Sunlight and shadows play on water in Veys rendering of a boatyard scene. And his palm trees, draw the eye ever upward into squintworthy skies, Frank adds. Head in the Clouds will feature more than 40 of the painters new works that will dominate the main, first-floor gallery from Feb. 23 to Mar. 14. I have to like what I see in order to paint it, Vey said, adding that he fell in love with Key West, its light and colors in the 1980s. As a painter, I take a ton of photos, and then you want to capture what turns you on most about the scene. An artists reception will be held at the gallery from 5:30-8-30 p.m. Saturday. The gallery is located at 600 Greene St., Key West.

The French Connection opened Feb. 21, as part of Walk on White, and will remain on view through March 10. The exhibition is sponsored by Doug Mayberry Real Estate.

The Girl Scouts of the USA tried hard to squeeze some actual healthy stuff into their new cookie. And now theyre trying just as hard to defend themselves against criticism that the Mango Creme is nothing but a sugary sham.The Scouts raised eyebrows last month (the annual sale ended earlier this month) when they began selling the cookie, touting the partnership with a company called NutriFusion. The South Carolina-based company makes GrandFusion, a product made by grinding freezedried fruits and veggies into a powder and adding it to various foods. NutriFusion says its product supercharges the nutritional value of food without altering its taste.GrandFusion is a blend of fruits and/or vegetables that can significantly increase the nutritional profile, and therefore the marketability, of food, beverage and snack products, the company says on its website. ABC Bakers, one of two national suppliers of Girl Scout cookies, went a step further by stating that the new cookie contains all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes and strawberries!ABC adds: Try some today and enjoy a delicious new way to get your vitamins!That claim, including the exclamation points, must have been a bridge too far for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the publichealth advocate group out of Washington. The groups CEO, Anna Maria Chavez, sent a letter to the Girl Scouts, urging them to stop promoting the cookie as a healthy product. Unfortunately that cookie does not have the nutrient benefits of eating fruit, but does have 4 grams of heartdisease-promoting saturated fat and 11 grams of toothdecaying sugars per threecookie serving, the letter says. We are concerned that by marketing these cookies as a delicious new way to get your vitamins,the Girl Scouts is misleading its members and supporters and undermining their health. The center points out that 98 percent of the crisp, coconut-flavored Mango Creme consists of enriched flour, dextrose (a form of sugar) and palm oil. Among the ingredients in the other 2 percent are soy lecithin, citric acid, malic acid and annatto (a natural dye that comes from the achiote tree in Latin and South America). It has nutrients from natural whole food concentrate, including cranberry, pomegranate, orange, grape, strawberry and even shiitake mushrooms, added for their vitamin D content.Are the cookies horrible for you? Not if you dont eat a whole box at a time, probably.According to the label, each three-cookie serving (36 grams) has 15 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin B1, and 6 percent each of A, C, D, E and B6. A serving also has 180 calories and 8 grams of fat. By comparison, a two-cookie serving of the popular Caramel deLites has 130 calories, 6 grams of fat (5g saturated) and 12 grams of sugar. The Girl Scouts of the USAresponded to the letter with a statement defending the besieged cookie.This variety was inspired by consumer research that points to a preference for sandwich creme cookies, and a resurgent interest in adding vitamins and nutrients to snack foods in North America. The Mango Creme is not the first Girl Scout Cookie produced that includes a benefit associated with an added ingredient, or a benefit associated with a reduced or removed ingredient.All Girl Scout cookies should be considered an occasional treat and eaten in moderation.
