District responds to critical state auditAs Monroe County School District administrators weigh their response to a Florida Auditor Generals Office preliminary financial and operational audit, it appears at least one critical finding may be reversed.State auditors, in a draft released Feb. 20, cited the district for defaulting on a $36 million construction loan to rebuild Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West.The audit finding reads: The districts required annual debt payment of $2,117,647, due on Dec. 1, 2011, was made on Aug. 24, 2012, or 267 days late.But, in what Superintendent Mark Porter described as great news, Fort Lauderdale-based U.S. Banks Corporate Trust Services Vice President Peter Fowler notified the district on March 4 that the problem was with bond documents and payment schedules.Because the funds were on hand at the School District and remitted upon receipt of invoicing for the funding dates, Fowler wrote to Director of Finance Ken Gentile, the School Board is in compliance with the payment terms of the tax certificate and no technical event of default occurred.The most recent audit, covering the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2012, continues a four-year trend of numerous repeat findings, with the most recent listing one significant deficiency, 12 additional matters and five federal awards findings.The district escaped the state audits most serious finding, referred to as material weakness. The significant deficiency reported by state auditors was found in financial reporting procedures (that) could be improved to ensure that transactions and note disclosures are properly reported. Thats viewed as a wholesale criticism of the districts bookkeeping.

Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet to talk about a 17-unit condo complex in Marathon. It appears state officials were listening: Carruthers also president of nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe has scheduled conference calls with Citizens Property Insurance Corp. and Scotts office to discuss the astronomical windstorm insurance premium hike now facing residents at the Lady Alexander and other properties. The state-run insurer of last resort has proposed hiking the condos windstorm premium from $7,351 in 2012, to $92,138 in 2013. Thats a roughly 1,300 percent increase in one year. The rate hike is thanks to Scotts depopulation plan aimed at drastically slashing Citizens1.3-million policy load. The plan includes a wide-ranging re-inspection program searching for safety deficiencies. Following is a timeline according to documents provided by the condos treasurer Marilyn Tempest: Citizens billed the Lady Alexander $7,351 in February 2012 for April 2012 through April 2013. Citizens performed its re-inspection of the 40-yearold condo building, built in 1973, on July 30. Tempest received a bill on Sept. 5 indicating a premium hike for the remainder of the term to $18,270. Residents paid the $10,919 balance. The condo receives a Citizens invoice on Feb. 8 indicating a policy increase to $20,735 for April 2013 to April 2014. Just 10 days later, Citizens sent another bill increasing the premium to $92,138. Tempest told the Keynoter that the re-inspection took away all the condos mitigation credits, including for shutters, concrete structure and the size of the nails used to construct its roof. The Lady Alexander has made zero insurance claims of any kind since being built 40 years ago. We might as well have no shutters. Theyre older than they have standards for, so they havent been subjected to standards of testing, Tempest said of the hurricane shutters on each unit. If not reversed, the premium hike would increase ownersmonthly condo fee from $475 to roughly $900. Thats too much for many to bear, she said. Part-time resident Sonney Forrest has lived in Marathon for 10 years and owned a unit at the Lady Alexander for two. He said his wife plans to retire soon and they intended to live in the Keys full-time.

Fat Albert gets a lifelineInitially scheduled for a March 15 shutdown, the Cudjoe Key-based surveillance blimp Fat Albert will stay operational until Sept. 30 as federal lawmakers broker a transfer of the Tethered Aerostat Radar Systems program from U.S. Air Force control to the Department of Homeland Security. TARS comprises the bayside Cudjoe site and eight others situated along the Gulf of Mexico, Mexican border and Puerto Rico. The surveillance program is capable of detecting lowaltitude aircraft at the radars maximum range by mitigating curvature of the Earth and terrain-masking limitations, according to Air Force literature from the Langley, Va.-based Air Combat Command. The Cudjoe Key aerostats primary mission is to support counter-drug operations. U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Joint Interagency Task ForceSouth, the latter located in Key West, employ data collected by instruments about the airship.U.S. Rep Ron Barber (DAriz.) has spearheaded the effort to save the program, joining 15 colleagues in January asking Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to work on a solution.There are two TARS sites in Arizona, one at Fort Huachuca and the other at Yuma. From a prepared statement released by Barber last week: These systems help to secure our border by detecting ultralights and other low-flying aircraft illegally entering our country carrying drugs.

A2-year-old Key Largo boy was killed early Tuesday morning after being struck by a vehicle at mile marker 99 on U.S. 1. The parents of Austen Mark Alward, Christina and Mark Alward, called the Monroe Sheriffs Office just after midnight to report they had been searching for their son and could not find him. The family lives downstairs on Sunset Boulevard in Key Largo. The boys grandparents live upstairs. The grandparents were home later Tuesday morning but declined to speak with the press. Neighbor Rolphe Griffin was surprised at the tragedy because the front gate is always locked. I always see kids running around, but the gates are closed, he said. Sheriffs deputies and officers from the Florida Highway Patrol and Customs and Border Protection in the area searched the home and surrounding area for about 20 minutes before the child was found. He had been struck by a car on the southbound side of the highway and was lying in the median, according to police. Alward was taken to Mariners Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police put out a notice to be on the lookout for any vehicle headed south with front end damage. Just before 1 a.m. Deputy John Gabay stopped a 2013 Hyundai Sonata at mile marker 23. The driver of the vehicle, Edward Krajewski, 63, told the deputy he thought he may have hit something around mile marker 99. FHPspokesman Trooper Joe Sanchez said Krajewski, from Pennsylvania, is not in custody, but FHPinvestigators are discussing possible charges with State Attorney Catherine Vogels office. Sanchez said investigators are not concerned Krajewski will leave the area. The FHPis investigating the accident. Sheriffs detectives will review circumstances of the case involving the boys disappearance.

Restoration costing upwards of $25MEvidenced by the fleet of dump trucks hauling fill down U.S. 1 to Naval Air Station Key Wests Boca Chica Field, work is well underway on a $50 million, two-year airfield clear zone restoration and environmental mitigation project.Announced in March 2012, the first phase mitigation has been completed at a cost of about $25 million, according to NAS Key West spokeswoman Trice Denny. Now work is focused on improvements to the end of runways on Boca Chica, home to rotating crews of aviators brought to the Keys for training, particularly aircraft carrier landing practice.Half of the $50 million went toward mitigation, Denny said, which we accomplished on Navy properties outside Boca Chica restoring wetlands and waterways.The mitigation encompasses 900 acres of wetlands and surface waters on Navyowned property on Boca Chica, Geiger Key, Rockland Key and Big Coppit Key.The current work being led by NAS Key Wests Public Works Department is to remove the mangroves at the end of the runways and replace them with low-lying marsh grass, which will keep the bunnies happy and make the airfield a safer one for the pilots, Denny said. The state and federally endangered Key Largo marsh rabbit lives in and around Boca Chica among other Monroe County habitats; the Navy is planting high salt marsh vegetation...to provide habitat.The construction, permitted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is set for a 2014 completion.The Lower Keys marsh rabbit and eight other protected species were the subject of a 1990 lawsuit alleging that allowing flood insurance on endangered-species habitat violates the Endangered Species Act and essentially placed some 55,000 countywide properties on a list prohibiting Federal Emergency Management Agency insurance.That was settled in 2010 and Keys home and property owners are slowly being removed from the list making them once again eligible for federally subsidized flood insurance. The other animals named in the lawsuit are the eastern Indigo snake, Key deer, Key Largo cotton mouse, Key Largo woodrat, Key tree cactus, Schaus swallowtail butterfly, silver rice rat and Stock Island tree snail.Navy making improvements to runwaysBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBOCA CHICA FIELDRed tide bloom could threaten the KeysAred-tide bloom that has already killed a record number of manatees lingers along the Southwest Florida coast, with some patches being found this week along the mainland Monroe County coast. Marine scientists in the Florida Keys are sampling local waters for signs of the Karenia brevis algae, a naturally occurring organism that becomes a red tide when its concentrations soar. Down here right now, there are very minimal traces to no traces of the Karenia brevis algae, said Cory Walter, project coordinator for Mote Marine Laboratorys Florida Keys Red Tide Monitoring Program. Its more or less a background or minimal level, Walter said. For this time of year, thats somewhat common. The main bloom has been pretty stationary off the mainland, she noted. If a tide does start to slowly move down, it would be this time of year. Mote Marine staff and volunteers regularly take water samples near the Keys to check for signs of the harmful algae. The water samples collected by Mote Marine Lab and FWC provide naturalresource managers with important information on the distribution and severity of algal blooms, as well as potential risk to the Keys, said Karrie Carnes, information officer for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Such early detection and monitoring programs are critical, and help the science community better understand the nature and causes of events including harmful algal blooms, red tides and fish kills. Red tide at a level that could cause breathing problems for people susceptible to its respiratory impacts could be possible from Sarasota County south to Lee County, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Monday. No respiratory impacts are expected elsewhere alongshore southwest Florida, including the Florida Keys, through Thursday, the NOAA report said. Over the last several days, reports of respiratory irritation were received from Charlotte County, it continued. Reports of dead fish and discolored water were received from Lee County. While not a direct threat to the Keys unless it starts moving, the current red tide appears to be the bloom with the most potential to affect the Keys since 2007. The bloom so far has been blamed for the deaths of 174 manatees off the states southwest coast, the largest number of manatee mortalities ever attributed to red tide. The current bloom has lasted since September. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists have asked the public to be on the lookout for manatees affected by red tide. Signs that a manatee is affected by red tide include a lack of coordination and stability in the water, muscle twitches or seizures and difficulty lifting its head to breathe, the FWC said. Kevin Baxter of the FWC told the Miami Herald that agency scientists believe the manatees are killed by eating sea grass laden with the red-tide algae. In 2008, Florida Bay was affected by a long-lasting bloom of blue-green algae. While not toxic itself, the blue-green algae clouded waters, killed sponges and caused some fish kills by sucking oxygen from water.Concentrations already killed 174 manateesENVIRONMENTTwo-year-old struck and killed on U.S. 1Wandered away from home late at nightKEY LARGO Photo by DAVID GOODHUEAusten Mark Alward,2 years old,wandered away from his 203 Sunset Blvd.house early Tuesday morning.Police found his body,which was struck by a car,at mile marker 99.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgA savings account has been set up by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office Victims Advocate for the family of Austen Alward,the two-year-old boy struck and killed by a car Tuesday morning.

Keynoter StaffVenture Out, a 659-unit mobile home and RVpark on Cudjoe Key, filed suit March 1 against Monroe County county and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority over individual $4,500 wastewater fees that add up to more than $3 million. The countys assessment roll charges each owner the $4,500 system development charge, based on one equivalent dwelling unit, or EDU, of 167 gallons of water use per day. Florida statute is specific as to how theyre supposed to be assessed. It says each parcel should be treated as one individual parcel, county Senior Director of Engineering Kevin Wilson said. Venture Out attorney David Paul Horan, who represented Key RVin a similar case in the city of Marathon, is arguing the park should pay a single $500,000 hookup fee. He said the county is asking the park to decommission a $3 million pipeline in the park thats already up to advanced wastewater treatment standards. In the case of Venture Out, they dont have to run [any sewer lines]. We already put it in and we maintain it and everything. We cant afford to turn around and give them a $3 million, in-the-ground system, and $3 million in a hookup fee and then weve go to destroy a fully functional AWTplant for another $1 million, he said.Cudjoe Key RVpark sues over sewer feesHookup fee fight adds up to $3 million By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWASTEWATER
the fees to maintain the condo, Id be forced out of the state, he said. People whove gotten loans on their property, theyre bound by law to insure their property. Now youve got more of these foreclosures. The ramifications are terrible. Dale Denning has been president of the Lady Alexander condo association for six years. He rents his two-bedroom unit to a nurse at Fishermens Hospital. If we pay the $92,000 we still have a deductible of $126,000. If we lost the whole roof it wouldnt approach that. Its looking like theyre trying to get us to drop, he said. Another long-time resident told the Keynoter another rate hike would force her family to get rid of the condo. Her son, who has mortgages on two other homes and two children in college, owns it. I love my neighbors here; theyre like family to me. I wouldnt want to have to move some place else. This idea that our monthly assessment might double is just unbelievable, she said. Denning said real estate agents have told Lady Alexander owners that its not worth showing units with that high of an assessment. No one is going to look at a $900 [per month] condo fee unit. Probably the people with mortgages, when they have to put $900 in addition to the payment, theyre going to be in trouble. We have a lot of older people on fixed incomes and they just cant, he said. FIRM has been fighting ever-increasing Citizens windstorm insurance rates since 2006. Citizens has agreed to fund a $485,000 windstorm insurance rate study that could limit Monroes future involvement with the company. The three-pronged study is aimed at keeping Keys windstorm rates manageable for years to come, and could end with the Keys forming its own insurance pool.

Negotiating is onoing, Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi said in an email. We expect to bring an item to the County Commissions April 17 meeting in Key West, Gastesi said. The prospective tenant, Key West businessman and artist Richard Buckheim, said he is less optimistic. There are still a lot of things to be worked out, Buckheim said this week. Id like to get it done but I dont think it will happen by April. Buckheim was traveling in the Caribbean and declined further comment until his return. County commissioners have grown weary of being faulted for spending $3.1 million on the one-acre waterfront property that includes the former Hickory House restaurant, once a popular dining spot. When the controversial purchase was approved by commissioners in 2006, developers were actively buying or optioning waterfront property throughout the Florida Keys during a rush to build high-end condo-hotel residences. Then-commissioner Dixie Spehar championed the purchase of the lot near Oceanside Marina as a way to secure working waterfront areas while creating a public park and boat ramp. The project passed on a 3-2 vote in November 2006. Within months, commissioners were trying to unload the property for what they paid for it. In 2008, developers of the Kings Pointe Marina agreed. After months of doing backround work and continuing to see a souring economy, the offer was withdrawn. Since then, offers for the site have been rejected as financially unacceptable to the county or impossible to approve under current building and environmental rules sometimes both. The most recent attempt to find a buyer or long-term tenant for the shuttered building and land was the fifth try in the last six years. The two bidders were Buckheim, who wants to create a dock for commercial hook-and-line fishermen, and Florida Yacht Group, which rents sailboats from the Oceanside Marina. We have a good plan that should help the community, especially a bunch of young kids building careers as commercial fishermen, Buckheim said in October. Commissioners in October noted that Buckheims offer of $2,000 monthly with an option to buy at the end of three years was acceptable, and would have to be negotiated. Florida Yacht Group, in their offer, sought to build 14 housing units and seven commercial units on the one-acre parcel.Lease with option on table for Aprils meetingMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgTheyre trying to get us to dropFrom Citizens,1A

EDITORIALLong past time to address payLETTERS TO THE EDITORSupport your Red CrossMarch is Red Cross Month as designated by the president, and the American Red Cross in the Keys and around the country is taking time to recognize people who help their community by giving of themselves the volunteers, class participants and financial supporters who help us to assist those in need. March is also a great time to become part of the Red Cross by doing such things as developing a fire safety or hurricane preparedness plan for your household, becoming a volunteer, or signing up for swimming classes or training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use of an automated external defibrillator. In fact, recently a Key West woman saved a restaurant customers life after taking a training class. She knew the immediate steps to take, including how to administer chest compressions. The Red Cross trains hundreds of people each year in our community. Are you one of those people? This year, we dont need to be reminded that the Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters a year across the country, most of which are not in the news and affect only a few families. Many of us were moved to help the Red Cross after Superstorm Sandy and a recent tornado in Mississippi. The Red Cross also provides 24hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families; collects and distributes about half the nations blood supply; and trains more than 7 million people in first aid, water safety and other life-saving skills every year. Here in the Keys, we have outstanding support from our neighbors to help the Red Cross continue to help others. New businesses are joining us each year, including the Hard Rock Cafe, which is selling a collectible pin for Red Cross Month. Part of the proceeds enable us to continue our work. We are appreciative of all of them, and all of you, who help us to always be ready, across the street and around the world. Matthew Helmerich Board of directors American Red Cross South Florida Region Key WestWhat a fundraiserAn 18-year relationship between the Marathon Wild Bird Center and long-time Marathon resident Richie Moretti led to a phenomenal fundraiser March 5, raising $16,000 for the wild birds of the Middle Keys. Richie offered a pledge to match up to $10,000 raised in a 24-hour period to help offset the decline in general donations to the facility due to the shaky economy and to help cover the cost of some extra help while the number of pelicans admitted due to entanglement with fishing tackle is on the rise. The all-day fundraiser, kicking off on US1 Radios Morning Magazine and concluding at Cabana Breezes restaurant in Key Colony Beach that evening, was a huge success. I would like to whole-heartedly thank Richie for his phenomenal match, Rick and Lori Sall for their planning and management of the day, Bill Becker of US1 Radio for his help with the kickoff and April Tracy and her staff at Cabana Breezes for the fun conclusion party. Marathon Wild Bird Center volunteers rose to the occasion with their help and donations, as did every single person that either called in or went to our website to make a contribution. Though we fell a smidgen short of our ultimate goal, we are extremely grateful to Richie for the opportunity to substantially build our reserves so we can continue to tend to sick, injured and orphaned wild birds. Additional donations are always welcome, of course. Kelly Grinter Marathon Wild Bird CenterTalent evidentOn behalf of the board of directors, management and staff at Crane Point Museum and Nature Center, I would like to thank all the participants who helped us create a new and exciting fundraiser show billed as Marathons Got Talent. Fundraisers require a lot of effort and commitment from a lot of people to be successful and everyone helped us achieve success for this years event. To all the talented participants, the crew, the volunteers and all the local businesses that so generously gave gift certificates and items for the raffle, they are most appreciated. And thank you to those who attended the event and contributed to a very successful evening of fun entertainment for a great cause. We live in a wonderful community, and I am proud to be a part of it. Loretta Geotis Operations director Crane Point Museum and Nature Center MarathonMost students invest 16 to 20 years acquiring knowledge at an enormous cost to them, their families and our society. Far too often, the process doesnt yield efficient outcomes.Time and again, there is misalignment between scholarly pursuits and the job marketplace, and many kids end up with unbearably high student loans. We can tweak this education-to-employment process and achieve some valuable results a modern model to prepare young people for the workplace and accelerate Floridas economic growth.Learning should be both curiositydriven and workplace-relevant starting at early ages. Agood example is keyboarding with proper hand placement and words-per-minute awareness, avoiding hunt-and-peck keyboarding. Especially at the earliest ages, this skill can be acquired in a fun, game-like atmosphere.Not many students today have fast and accurate keyboarding skills, especially while looking away from the keyboard. Imagine the productivity gains throughout an entire lifetime if someone is an excellent keyboarder.How about a workplace-relevant course? According to the Huffington Post, Learning (basic software coding) is the new literacy. It accelerates child development, it stimulates creativity and builds confidence, and it unlocks the best careers in America. To start, most good jobs require knowledge of the Microsoft Office Suite: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. With these skills, one can manipulate data, write essays, prepare and understand presentations. We are fortunate here in Florida. Starting in middle school, our students can earn industry certificate MICRO069Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS). Some 4,074 Floridians did just that two years ago, and the number is rapidly rising. Teenagers, still in school, can get higher-paying jobs with this certificate in hand. According to the College Board, only 2 percent of students learn to code, but computer science majors have no trouble landing jobs. In fact, there are more computer programming jobs than all other math and science jobs, and almost 70 percent are outside the tech sector, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics. How about some other industry certificates? Florida offers certificates in 90 different professions, and Floridas secondary students earned 33,523 such certifications in 2010-11. They are trained to do something, in addition to the standard high school diploma, and they earn much more than minimum wage. Certificates range from Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) to Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) to Certified Food Manager (CFM).Earning one or two industry certificates in middle and high school will put Floridas students into one or more workplace-relevant courses at an early age. Imagine if we added an industry certificate qualification to gain entry to our universities and to get Bright Futures scholarships. And allowing students to follow their curiosity by choosing industry certificates in areas of their own interest is bound to reduce high school dropout rates. Even eventual dropouts will be more employable at higher wages if they have a certificate.We must abandon the question of college or career. We should ask each student about his or her interests and place them on a certificate pathway to career and college. Attaining some skill in something (anything) and being employable comes first. Then, formal and continuous education follows. Education to employment starts with keyboarding and enhanced computer skills, enriched with another industry certificate all while studying common core subjects. Ready with some employable skills, our high school graduates can proceed to any of Floridas 44 technical centers, 28 colleges, or 12 universities a bit more rounded and a lot more focused.

Every year since, the economic picture was portrayed as dire and no raises were approved by the Legislature. This year, however, things might be different if Senate President Don Goetz gets his way. Goetz has a long history in public service, including stints as an elected school board member in Okaloosa County. Later, he became Superintendent of Schools there, before running for the Legislature. He understands that state employees are not the bad guys despite what you might hear from the Tea Party ideologues and their followers. Gov. Rick Scott has proposed $2,500 bonuses for school teachers and one-time bonuses of $1,200 for non-supervisory state workers. Gaetz sees bipartisan support for giving state workers raises and cites State Sen. Bill Montford (D., Tallahassee) as one of the chief backers among Democrats. Just to show how far state employees have fallen behind when it comes to earning power, their last raise in 2006 was 3 percent, approved by a prior Legislature and prior governor. Then, in 2011, the state began requiring its workers to contribute 3 percent into the state retirement system. So that 2006 raise was negated by the pension contribution, which was fought in court and ultimately the state won. With Floridas improving economy, we hope legislators have run out of excuses and will approve some form of raise for state workers this year.Aplea for common senseAfter first giving the okay, then saying no to a sewer line inside the Niles Channel Bridge, the Florida Department of Transportation and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority are negotiating some compromise. FDOTengineers cite the condition of the bridge as a factor for changing their mind and deciding against allowing the pipe to be run inside the bridge structure. Instead, two alternatives are being explored: One would bury the pipe under Niles Channel, which could run afoul of the federal Coastal Barrier Resources Act. The other idea: attach the pipe to the outside of the bridge with cables. Here are two arguments to pursue the cable alternative: its cheaper (the line buried beneath Niles Channel adds $3.5 million to project costs, according to Aqueduct officials) and its safer. Whenever there is a leak or other problem with a sewer line, its far easier to spot and repair when the pipe is above ground and visible, not buried in the channel bottom of a heavily-trafficked waterway. We hope common sense wins this argument on behalf of the environment and the ratepayers who ultimately will be footing the bill.College or career? We can have bothGUEST COLUMN PADGET Florida voters send out mixed-message on politicsLove it or hate it, social media provide an outlet for political opinions some incendiary, some provocative and some sensible, sound and rational. The beauty of soliciting comments on Facebook is that the replies are quick, heartfelt and varied. Some folks who might not feel comfortable offering political opinions in a social gathering seem at ease discussing politics openly in a Facebook chat.My current 5,130 Facebook political page likes range from the most conservative or libertarian to the most liberal. The range of views on most posts offers a great diversity of thought. Most of the time the conversation is civil, but at times I have chastised those who cross the line.Many of them, but not all, dont really want an impartial or unbiased discussion but would rather defend their party and attack the other, much like sports fans cheering for their team and trashtalking the rival team. Interestingly, there is great variation within the parties, particularly in the Republican Party. Loyalty is expected among party members without agreement on issues, philosophy, preferred candidates or party direction. So this past Sunday I posted the following question, hoping to glean how each political party is perceived by voters of differing affiliations:I would like some good, productive, honest feedback. Please refrain from insults and snark. Please indicate your party affiliation followed by what you think the Republican Party stands for, what you think the Democratic Party stands for and, if you like, what you think Libertarian, Independent, or any other minor party or movement stands for. This might go in a future column (without names). Thanks.Within hours, there were more than 100 responses and they were illuminating. Loyalty to party was not evident in these responses. While certainly not scientific, some interesting trends emerged.First, some believe there isnt a lot of difference between the parties, as evidenced by one of my favorite responses.GOP= Party of growing the government, big spending, and liberty killing. Ok to subvert the Constitution if it is for a GOPidea. DEM=Party of growing the government, and big spending. Ok to subvert the Constitution if it is for a DEM idea.Rs and Ds are one [and] the same?.?.?.?Ill hang out with Independents, at least we can speak our minds and owe no allegiance.Second, there was some consensus that the problem is not ideology but that both parties are more interested in self-preservation or helping the influential. The battle in America is not right versus left, it is the people vs special interest groups.Third, those who identified themselves as Republicans (more than 40 percent of respondents) were the least happy with their party for a variety of reasons, including the emphasis on social issues, increased intolerance and lack of cooperation. On the other end, a few believed the GOPwasnt conservative enough. Registered Republican, extremely disappointed with continued focus on social issues?.?.?.?cannot continue to legislate morality. As a Republican, this past election was first time I voted democrat for president. GOPtoday is not the party of Reagan. It has become a close-minded party of elitists and heartless individuals.Fourth, respondents believed the Libertarian party primarily has good ideas but loses support because they are not realistic in their application. Libertarians 90 percent of what they stand for is good but that last 10 percent is so offensive, we will continue to reject the party as a whole.Fifth, there seemed to be a general belief that the GOPis the party of the rich and is becoming a small tent while the Democratic Party is for the working class, is more tolerant, appeals to women and minorities but spends too much.D stands for big government and handouts. R stands for smaller government and earning it for yourself. Rs stand for individual (Ive got mine, dont care if you get yours) and Ds stand for group (all should be given a fair shot). You can learn a lot about what people think if you just ask them. Oh, and it helps if you listen.

After all the talk about the fiscal cliff and healthcare reform credits, you may be dreading filing your taxes even more than usual this year. Take heart: Most of the changes wont hit until the 2013 tax year. If you have a simple return and you only take the standard deduction (two-thirds of all taxpayers do), your 2012 taxes should be treated a lot like last years. Subhed: Delays are here Where you might feel a difference is in how long it takes to receive your refund. When the IRS delayed the start of filing season by eight days to Jan. 30, the agency was busy updating forms and software and adjusting tax calculations for the 137 million individual tax returns it processes annually. Earlybird tax payers who look forward to that quick refund will have to wait. And even though tax-filing season officially has opened, the IRS isnt ready yet for all categories of taxpayers. While you can download forms now, tax payers with many special situations such as those who have adopted a child, employ certain green energy solutions or lease property will begin filing according to a staggered schedule throughout February and March. Programs including Intuit Inc.s TurboTax will let you fill out the forms now and save for later, when they can be submitted. TurboTax Vice President Bob Meigan also warns taxpayers that because there were so many changes this year to the tax code, tax payers should be sure they are using the most recent version of any tax software program. Subhed: Alternative minimum taxOne change that may affect you this year was adjustments in the Alternative Minimum Tax, a charge created in 1969 to make sure that the wealthy couldnt avoid paying tax altogether. Over the years, as both salaries and expenses have increased, the AMThas crunch many middle-class tax payers; Congress has now made adjustments and pegged future taxes to inflation.For the 2012 tax year, the first $50,600 is exempt for individuals, and joint filers can make $78,750 before the AMTapplies. The good news: Various credits and deductions were extended, including some education-related deductions. The American Opportunity Tax Credit, extended through 2017, can be worth up to $2,500 for college tuition. And teachers will still be able to deduct up to $250 of their out-of-pocket expenses for the classroom. This year, taxpayers have the choice of deducting state and local sales taxes instead of state and local income tax a change that could benefit Floridians, who dont pay a state income tax. Given the complexity, most experts argue that you need to get help this season, whether it be a software program or professional tax preparer who works in an office. If youre using an online software, be sure it has been updated this year; TurboTax said its software reflects all the latest changes. The value of working with a live account comes throughout the year. Stu Sutta, a P.A. whos worked in South Florida for over 20 years, says you should be hiring an accountant for their expertise with money management and the law, not simply to fill out forms on April 15th. My clients should be talking to me all year, says Sutta. Subhed: Looking ahead If youre self employed, its more important than ever to stay on top of your records. Anecdotally, tax pros say that the IRS is auditing more self-employed individuals who make under $200,000. Be detailed with your records on mileage, meals, cellphones. The IRS knows Schedule C is where self-employed individuals tend to make inflated claims, so you want to hang onto physical receipts, not just the cancelled checks. Write the name of the person you had the business lunch with on the receipt, along and what you discussed. Keep a mileage log year round; its more valuable proof than one created just for the auditor.Other changes coming for the 2013 tax year will involve changes in long-term capital gains tax rates for highincome earners and a 3.8 percent levy on investment income for earners above $200,000 per individual and $250,000 per couple to support Medicare. Those affected will want to work with their investment advisors to minimize tax consequences. Subhed: Boost savings You still have time to contribute to an IRAfor 2012 but if you or your spouse also has a 401K, you may not be able to deduct the entire contribution. For those age 50 and older, you can contribute as much as $6,000. If youre younger, the maximum contribution is $5,000. Remember contributions to a traditional IRAare fully tax deductible if you dont have a retirement plan at work.Well aware of the fiscal cliff, many accountants advised their clients to take gains on equities and income properties before the end of 2012. Not that clients always listened. That brings us to our next potential scenario: a windfall in 2013. What if you sell an income property in 2013 and made a sizeable profit? That income could push you into the higher tax bracket.John G. Ebenger, a director at accounting and advisory firm, Berkowitz, Pollack, & Brant says there may be a way to create an installment payment plan so that the money made from that sale could be received by you over multiple years. Ebenger also says the rules for passive income have changed. If you own a rental property and have a management company taking care of it, you could be hit with an extra 3.8 percent tax. To declare it as active income, you may have to manage it yourself find another tax offset like putting more money into your retirement account.But if you do take over the rental management, youll need to keep track of how often you visit, repairs and upgrades. Document all of it: mileage, frequency of trips, what you did and with whom.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection expects to have a list of desired restoration and conservation projects in place this summer for its share of the money from the BPoil spill disaster. When the federal pipeline for the money to reach the state and local governments will be turned on remains unknown. The state must wait for the U.S. Treasury to establish a list of regulations on how the Restore Act and other money from BPand Transocean settlements are distributed, said Mimi Drew, special advisor to DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard. Were reading the law, but we dont have the rules, Drew said. The money is separate from the more than $1.7 billion that the BP-backed claims paying agency has paid out since last summer, of which about $332 million has gone to individuals and businesses in Florida. The state continues to see tar balls wash ashore on Panhandle beaches and recorded a drop in Gulf fishing. There also was a decline in beach tourism, with a drop in reservations from the April 2010 disaster. State officials have been holding listening sessions along the Gulf Coast to get local input for conservation and restoration projects. Public meetings on the plan will be scheduled later this spring. Right now were just talking about the kind of projects well be funding, but we hope to have a draft plan in about a month or two, Drew said after appearing Monday before the Senate Agriculture Committee. Through the Restore Act, the state expects Florida counties will receive $56 million, with the governor getting to direct a share of $240 million heading to the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council. As part of a $1 billion agreement signed by the five state National Resource Damage Assessment Project Trustees and BPin April 2011, $100 million was designated to Florida. So far, the state has been able to use $11.4 million for four boat ramps and a dune restoration project in Escambia County and a pair of coastal conservation projects nesting bird and sea turtle habitat along the Panhandle. We are concentrating on trying to restore what we call the loss of human use, Drew said. They have to have a direct connection to the spill. You have to prove that the project offsets the damage from the spill. KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,March 13,2013 get out of hand.Velvety. Tart. Sweet. Gone!

Publix Bakery Key Lime PieThings could Village gets green light forpipelineMonroe officials have determined that a portion of Islamoradas sewage pipeline to Key Largo that will lie underground beneath Tavernier Creek will not be impacted by the countys controversial interpretation of a federal coastal protection system. The determination, made this week by county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley, clears the way for the village of Islamorada to thread a pipeline 40 feet below ground under the Tavernier Creek Bridge. The project is part of the villages $91 million pipeline system taking Islamoradas wastewater to be treated at a Key Largo treatment plant at mile marker 101.5. County Commissioner David Rices office sent Hurley an e-mail in February asking if the Tavernier Creek portion of the project would violate the countys interpretation of the federal Coastal Resource Barrier System. Congress created the CRBS in 1982 and updated in 1990. The countys land-use policy since 2001 has been not to issue permits for new utilities in the CRBS, which was established to protect sensitive coastal environments. But policy has had consequences that many county officials did not foresee. For instance, residents along County Road 905 are now unable to get permits to connect to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment Districts system and treatment plant. The policy is also partly the reason why residents on No Name Key rely on generators and solar power for their electricity and cant connect to the Keys Energy Services main power grid. But after discussing the issue with her staff, Hurley wrote Rices office Monday to say the CRBS would not impact the Islamorada project, despite Tavernier Creek being in the protected zone, because the pipeline would go directly under U.S. 1. The highway is not bound by the CRBS. Also, even though the properties alongside the bridge are in the CRBS, the houses that would connect to the system are in the village of Islamorada, and the county doesnt issue permits for utility improvements within rights of way, Hurley said. So the system improvements would be done by the utility, Hurley wrote. And in this case, Islamorada would be the government agency that would govern the connections because the properties that will seek permits are within Islamoradas jurisdiction.County removes hurdle on Tavernier Creek Bridge routeWASTEWATERLocal wage ordinances under fire in TallahasseeAHouse committee moved last week to overrule local governments on all forms of compensation, something supporters say would create consistency for businesses but opponents say is a power grab on the part of the state. The State Affairs Committee approved a measure (HB 655) preempting those local rules on a 12-5 party-line vote. The measure would extend an existing ban on cities and counties setting their own minimum wages, preventing local governments and voters from setting policies on forms of compensation like earned sick leave. The bill would also bar preferences for local government contracts based on wages or compensation. Asimilar measure (SB 726) was scheduled to be voted on by the Senate Community Affairs Committee, but the hearing on that bill was postponed. In the House, the clash came between those representing employers and unions and advocates for increased benefits. Carol Dover, president of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, said the bill was needed to make sure that businesses know what the rules are at all times. It is critical that in this state as diverse as we are ... that our industries are regulated uniformly from one part of the state to the next, she said. The immediate spark for the legislation appears to have been a proposed ordinance on earned sick time in Orange County that voters could soon approve. Opponents of the measure say that the state should leave local governments alone, especially if the Legislature isnt willing to strengthen protections for workers on its own. We think it is wrong for Tallahassee to intervene in a situation where the community came together, found a local solution, and wants the chance to vote on something, said Stephanie K. Porta of Organize Now for Floridas Future. Rep. Jim Waldman, DCoconut Creek, said the Legislature was poorly positioned to handle the issue, which he said should be left to cities and counties. We come to the issue really of, who knows the local communities best? And the reality is its not us in Tallahassee, he said. But House Majority Leader Steve Precourt, the Orlando Republican who sponsored the bill, stressed the need for consistency and brushed away the idea that votersvoices wouldnt be heard.

Sometimes things can look so good and then in an instant it changes thats what happened the other night, Menendez said. The Conchs, who had won, 4-2, Friday night, entered Saturday nights seventh inning with a 2-0 lead. What seemed like a lifetime later, they were nursing an 82 defeat that dropped their record to 8-2. The game was a duel between South Dades hardthrowing Erik Manoah and Key West lefty Brandon Presley, an off-speed specialist. It wasnt until the bottom of the fifth that the Conchs could break through to take a 2-0 lead. Those runs came on an opposite-field single by Darren Miller. It was the fourth consecutive time in recent games that Miller came through with the bases loaded. Previously, he had a triple, a sacrifice fly and a grand slam. But the Conchs blew a chance to get more. After issuing a walk to reload the bases, Manoah reared back and retired three batters in a row. I thought that was our chance to put them away, Menendez said. I felt like we let them hang around, and we knew the game wasnt over.

Wind: air moving at a speed fast enough to be noticed. Aforce bringing change or destruction ... and angst to anglers. Offshore trips have been limited lately due to the persistent winds. However, on the days when getting to the humps was possible, there were very good catches of blackfin tuna along with the occasional wahoo. The wrecks and artificial reefs offer up good smoker king mackerel along with amberjack. Large live baits, such as goggle eyes and blue runners, work best. The yellowtail and mangrove snapper bite remains good on the reef, with the best fishing in the 60to 70foot depths. And, there are plenty of mutton snapper mixed in, many in the midteen weight category. Last weeks cool down spurred on the Spanish mackerel bite in the bay. This is about the last opportunity to load your smoker, as they will be mostly gone in the coming weeks. Shrimp, pilchards and small, live pinfish work best.Also, the bite for large mangrove snapper is back on in the bay, gulf and bridge areas. This is always great family fun fishing with plenty of filets for the dinner plate.Further out in the gulf, there are still good numbers of nice size kingfish.

Regulars Dave and Melanie Harman, from Jensen Beach, spent a day that produced a bountiful catch of blackfin tuna with Capt. Howard Kelley and mate, Neil Apley, out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. The McMillan bachelor party crew, from Bristol TN, fished two days and caught tuna, wahoo, amberjack and yellowtail. They also jumped a sailfish.The SeaSquared crew fished groups hailing all along the seaboard from Florida to Canada and inland from Ohio to Minnesota. Capt. Wayne Burre fished multiple groups in the bay with great catches of mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel and pompano. Other groups fished with Jason and me on the reef, patches, bay and at the bridge for all the snappers plus a 26inch gag grouper that we had to release. We also fished for sharks on a couple of outings.Jennifer Mutschler, from Kiester MN, and Mary Louise Liberto, from Saugerties NY, toughed out the wind and cold to land tarpon in the 30-pound class with Capt. Jeff Knapp on the Beckoning out of Marathon. Their men hooked bigger fish but couldnt get them to stick.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters out of the dock at Turtle Kraals, put his anglers on dolphin and king mackerel while trolling in 250 feet of water south of Sand Key. On the reef, yellowtails, muttons and big mangroves were caught, while in Hawk Channel they found blacktip, sharp nose and hammerhead sharks. When the breeze was up, tarpon, cero mackerel and snappers kept his anglers busy in Key West Harbor.Casting contestCapt.

The Canes (2-5) saw their two-game win streak ended March 6 in a 13-1 loss to state district power Gulliver Prep. Gulliver tapped a series of Cane pitchers for a dozen hits.The Canes collected three hits, a run-scoring single from freshman Luke Lofton and hits by David Munoz and Dalton Falcucci. At Palmer Trinity in Saturdays South Florida Conference game, Coral Shores rallied for two runs in the top of the fifth to narrow the Falconslead to 5-4. But Palmer answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning to stake a lead that set the final 8-4 score. Cane senior catcher Jonathan Mitjans went 3-for4 and drove in two runs. Freshman Kyle Gates was 2-for-3 and scored a run. Munoz, a senior infielder, doubled and scored twice. Kalen Carter, Cody Richards and Lofton each singled once. Results from Tuesdays scheduled conference game at Ransom Everglades were pending at press time. Immokalee, which defeated Marathon High School a month ago, brings a 5-5 record to the Upper Keys. Coral Shores plays a 7 p.m. Friday home doubleheader Miami Country Day, beginning at 3:30 p.m. An early season game against the Spartans (1-5) was postponed.CORAL SHORES BASEBALLKeynoter Staff at least in the opinion of umpire Vince Sucameli, whose balls-and-strikes calls began to exasperate Menendez, who watched the first two Buccaneer batters walk. Gabriel Cruz then doubled to right to cut the lead to 2-1. Adam Roush was next, driving in the tying run with a groundout as Cruz went to third. Jadan Garcia then bunted a ball that third baseman Andrew Freeman with Cruz bearing down on the plate fielded and threw wildly past catcher Chris Varela. That made it 3-3.An intentional walk was next, followed by four linedrive hits as Buccaneer fans and players went slightly delirious. The scoreboard, had it been working, would have shown South Dade ahead, 8-2. When it was 62, Presley finally was relieved. He should have been taken out [earlier], Presleys father, Ronnie, said behind the screen. That was like batting practice. Joey Figueroa finally got the last out, and the Conchs went down in order against Manoah. (Later, in the parking lot, the elder Presley and some other parents argued with Conch coaches.)Menendez had considered lifting Presley after the two walks. I still felt he gave us the best chance to win, he said. He hadnt thrown a lot of pitches and he had cruised up to that point, so I felt he would find a way to work out of the jam. Unfortunately, it didnt happened. He pitched his heart out.The Conchs will try to rebound at 4:30 p.m. today in a district game at Gulliver Prep. Will the nightmare carry over? I dont think so, Menendez said. The kids were over it right after it happened, and were focused and looking ahead.Players focused and looking aheadFrom Conchs,1B KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Wednesday,March 13,2013 Notice of Manual Audit The Monroe County Supervisor of Elections, R.

The Dolphins won, 9-5, on Friday and overcame shaky defense and pitching to win in thrilling fashion Saturday afternoon, 14-13. Frankie Gonzalez reached on an error to start the seventhinning comeback Saturday. Kevin McKeon singled and Sean Roussin was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Ian Almodovars fourth walk of the game scored the Dolphins first run, and Cooper Chaplin followed with a two-RBI single to scoring McKeon and Roussin. Kyle Pierce singled later in the inning to score Chaplin and reached second on a Raymond Crespo sacrifice bunt. Todd Picariello then pinch ran for Pierce. Jesse Deluca hit a grounder between first and second, and coach Luis Leal waived Picariello home the instant the pitcher broke toward first base. I knew theyd go for the out and first base and not think about the runner. By the time they turned to get him at home it was too late, Leal said. Almodovar reached base five times Saturday and wreaked havoc on the base paths. He stole five bases and scored four runs. Chaplin was 3-for-3 with a triple, two runs scored and a RBI, while McKeon went 3-for-4 with a RBI. Crespo was 2-for-4 with a RBI and Pierce had two RBI. Fridays game was back and forth most of the way, with the Knights leading 5-3 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning. The Dolphins scored five runs to take the lead for good. Roussin and Almodovar both reached base, and each stole a bag to set up runners on second and third for Carlos O Farrill. OFarrill grounded to third, but the ball was thrown away and Roussin and Almodovar scored easily. OFarrill scored as well when the Knights made a second throwing error on the same play attempting to throw him out at third base. Pierce then doubled and scored on a McKeon single. McKeon stole second, took third on a passed ball and scored on a wild pitch to make it 8-5. Marathon added another run in the sixth. Almodovar was 1-for-2 with three runs scored, two walks and three stolen bases. OFarrill was 1-for-3 with two RBI and McKeon was 1for-3 with a RBI. Picariello started Friday and pitched 6.1 innings. He allowed four hits, six walks and struck out five. The Dolphins (6-5) were scheduled to visit Palmer Trinity School Tuesday, after press time.
