In a 3-2 decision Monday night, elected members of the Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District voted to terminate its contract with the Key Largo Fire-Rescue Department Inc., consisting mostly of volunteers the past five decades. No reasons were publicly offered in the crowded special meeting that lasted less than 30 minutes.The without-cause resolution just says the district didnt want to fight about the reasons, district attorney Dirk Smits said. Just that its over.Three board members voting to end the contract indicated they want to replace the agreement with a new pact during a 60-day mediation period before the formal relationship with the volunteer group terminates.If mediation doesnt work, the board would ask the Tavernier and Islamorada fire departments for fire protection, at least on an interim basis.Acting to force mediation seriously needs to be done, said Marilyn Beyer, an elected district board member since the special taxing district was created in 2005. Hopefully this will trigger changes, said Beyer, who voted to end the contract. No one wants to get rid of the fire department.Russ Yagel, an attorney representing the volunteer organization, said the awful truth of the decisions intent is to get rid of Chief Sergio Garcia.Garcia, a 30-year fire department volunteer and chief since 1999, attended the district meeting but did not speak.Im obviously disappointed with the way the vote went, Garcia said later.

Michael W. Graham, 41, turned himself into the Seminole County Sheriffs Office on a warrant that charges him with 32 counts related to illegal online gambling. Graham, a South Carolina resident, was released the next day after posting a $200,000 bond and surrendering his passport. Graham is among three people accused of running three Keys Internet casinos and among 57 overall now criminally charged as part of the wideranging Operation Reveal the Deal investigation into online gambling that involved federal, state and local agencies. Joseph Harrington, 58, and Elaine Harrington, 63, of Longs, S.C., were arrested March 13 in South Carolina.

In the first, a shotgun-toting gunman dressed in a dark trench coat and ski mask met deputies who were responding to the sound of gunfire at the school.Later in the afternoon, deputies, dodging screaming and injured teachers and students, stormed the schools science building to take out three gunmen while clearing the building and treating a variety of mocked-up flesh wounds.Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said the detailed exercise was meant to be realistic and stressful.

The season was not that great, Piton said. Its been a struggle but we made a year of it. State fishery researchers will compile lobster trip reports and the seasons final numbers over the coming months. It looks like this will be a below-average season, based on the average for the last 10 years, said John Hunt, director of the state Fish and Wildlife Research Institute office in Marathon. The previous two seasons were relatively strong, with nearly 6 million pounds harvested each season. Atypical legal-size lobster weighs about 1 pound. Monroe County, with 650 licensed trappers, annually accounts for nearly 90 percent of Floridas commercial spiny-lobster haul. Lobster ranks as the most important fishery to the Keys commercial fleet. Dockside prices paid to fishermen have been great, especially since the winter started, Piton said. That helped people out.

The rest lined the pockets of store operators and the gaming software creators, said Seminole Sheriff Donald Eslinger. Authorities say 49 affiliates operated illegal gambling centers in 23 Florida counties.The same trio linked to Gulf Internet Services in the Keys also were listed as managers of other Allied Veterans affiliates in Gainesville, Live Oak and Lake City.Joseph Harrington was released on a $250,000 bond and Elaine Harrington on a $100,000 bond. They also surrendered their passports. All three had to show that money posted for their bonds was not generated by criminal activity. Arraignment on all three defendants will be May 7 in Seminole County.The three Keys operations of Gulf Internet Services in Tavernier, Marathon and Stock Island remain closed.Charges against the defendants include racketeering, money laundering, keeping a gambling house, and possessing illegal slot machines.

The storm had little effect on shore locally but damaged a significant number of wooden lobster traps in the water for less than a month. The storm also pushed the lobster into deeper water, Piton said. Hunt said since harvests often fluctuate, finding a cause is difficult. There is no smoking gun for this years lower take, he said.

The position has to be answerable to some other body, Thomas said. Now [Garcia] is answerable only to the firefighters that he controls.... Its about the position, not about Sergio.District board member George Mirabella, a volunteer fireman who voted to end the contract as a motion to start healing, said the departments corporate board had a long time to care for [problems] on their own but nothing was done.Frank Conklin, corporate president of the volunteer group, asked the district to save what we have, not scrap it and start all over.Voting against the motion were board Chairwoman Jennifer Miller and newly elected Tony Allen, also a volunteer firefighter.Theres no reason for us to do this, Allen said. Not a single person [from the public] came in here and asked us to get rid of the fire department. That speaks volumes. Miller said she was not comfortable making a hasty decision based on nothing.... I think a lot of the history [between the district and volunteers] is emotionbased. We need to run it like a business. Thomas said firefighters will continue to receive reimbursements and shifts during the next 60 days.Yagel said the department members do not plan to stage strikes or walkouts, but he feared some district board members have a fantasy of a new department.The district board called a special meeting for 6 p.m. April 1 at the Key Largo fire station to discuss issues to be raised during mediation.The Key Largo FireRescue Department has about three dozen volunteer firefighters and seven paid firefighters.Since the department has more volunteer firefighters than other Florida Keys areas, local fire-rescue taxes are notably lower in Key Largo.Emotionpart of the problemFrom Fire board,1ABoat found but boater missingDespite strong winds that could hamper efforts, the U.S. Coast Guard on Tuesday continued searching for a 49-year-old man whose sailboat was found in mangroves in Key Largo.Were still trying to determine what happened, said Petty Officer Mark Barney.The Guard said that on Friday, it received a report of an overdue vessel operated by Mark Polaschek, 49, who had gone out sailing on the 26-foot boat Mrs. Big.After he didnt return at sunset to the Manatee Bay Resort at mile marker 112, his wife reported his absence to Coast Guard Sector Key West. Multiple Coast Guard aircraft and boats were launched to search for the boat in partnership with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Monroe County Sheriffs Office and National Park Service.Later, a crew aboard a Coast Guard Air Station Miami helicopter located Polascheks vessel adrift in mangroves. Arescue swimmer aboard the helicopter was hoisted down to the boat and found the vessel abandoned with only a few personal items onboard. Since Friday night, we have searched aggressively and continue to search, said Capt. Aylwyn S. Young, Coast Guard Sector Key West commander.

Friday, Officer Jimmy Johnson and Lt. Roy Payne with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission discovered the gruesome catch while conducting a plainclothes operation in the area of the Stock Island Lobster Co. Charged with felony possession of a marine sea turtle are Alejandro Alvarez, 63, of Miami, and Israel Bonochea Ruiz, 29, of Key West. Thats one case Ive never made in my 24 years, a turtle case, said Bobby Dube, Keys spokesman for the FWC. Heres what happened, according to Dube: Payne, scoping out the scene from a tree, saw two men, later identified as Alvarez and Ruiz, driving their small wooden skiff to a mangrove shoreline and they tied up only four feet from where he was hiding. He called Johnson on his cell phone for assistance, and then watched as the two men carried a large mesh bag containing what appeared to be saltwater products to the bed of a Ford pickup, which was parked a few feet away. When Johnson arrived, Payne revealed his position and the officers then identified themselves as FWC officers to the two fishermen. Payne looked in the back of the pickup truck and observed the bag to clearly possess a federally protected butchered loggerhead sea turtle. Alvarez and Ruiz were arrested. Johnson then saw another skiff return to the same location and inspected a bucket the two men aboard had put on the seawall. In it were 47 lane and yellowtail and mutton snapper, 44 of which were fillets and undersize. Roberto Torna, 43, of Key West, and Michael Navarpo, 21, of Key West didnt have commercial fishing licenses and were each charged with possession of 44 snapper not landed in whole condition and 27 over the daily recreational bag limit of snapper.FWC officers staked out shorelineCRIME FRONT FWC Lt.Roy Payne (left) and Officer Jimmy Johnson display parts of the butchered loggerhead turtle.Keynoter StaffRamblingwoman busted at storePro tip: If you reportedly have illegal drugs on you and youre apparently under the influence, its not a good idea to head to the convenience store with your 8-year-old.Thats what Michelle Burdick, 45, of Key Largo did Saturday night, alleges the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Burdick is charged with cruelty to a child and numerous drug counts. Spokeswoman Becky Herrin says a clerk at the Circle K at mile marker 106 called the agency around 10 p.m. because Burdick after reportedly throwing things around the store tried to drive off when she was in no state to do so. Another person who had been at the store had tried to keep her from leaving, as well. When Deputy Timothy Hunsberger arrived and confronted Burdick, asking what she was doing, she said she was taking the 8-yearold girl to a Key Largo park to ride bikes, Herrin said. The girl was in the passenger seat of Burdicks car and Burdick was noticeably impaired, rambling in her speech and did not make sense when she tried to explain herself, Herrin said. Further questioning revealed Burdick possessed cocaine both powdered and crack along with Xanax, Oxycodone and drug paraphernalia. All the drugs were within easy reach of the child as she sat in the car, Herrin said. More cocaine was found hidden on her body when she was brought to jail for booking. Along with the child-cruelty count, Burdick was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, two counts possession of cocaine, five counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence and smuggling contraband into jail. The child was turned over to the state Department of Children and Families.Drugs found, child cruelty also chargedKEY LARGO BURDICKBad fill holds up redevelopmentKey Largo Ocean Resort shareholders, eager to start building their homes after the county ordered the property razed in 2010, will have to wait until at least early 2014 to begin work on the houses, county officials said.The mile marker 94.8 former RVpark will be one of the countys largest redevelopment projects once under way. But shareholder infighting, lawsuits and the county permitting process have combined to render the 22-acre oceanfront property uninhabited the past three years. Much of the infighting between the roughly 300 shareholders has been put on the backburner for now, but the project is far from being shovel-ready.The latest holdup is fill made from ground-up concrete on the property that the county says cannot be approved. Christine Hurley, Monroe Countys Growth Management Division, said much of the KLOR site is in a Federal Emergency Management Agency flood zone, where fill is not allowed.The plans do not indicate where the fill is to be distributed, Hurley said by e-mail. But Gay Marie Smith, a permitting agent working for the KLOR board of directors, said the parks architect, Orestes LopezRecio, plans to place the fill in a non-flood zone on the property. The county has requested a hydrologist report regarding the proposed fill site. Smith said she is waiting for the report and will submit it to the county when she gets it. Another holdup in the project is due to individual shareholders who have not had their properties inspected after receiving a demolition permit for their lots. Between those issues and that infrastructure for sewer and electric still needs to be built, Hurley said, the earliest expected date an individual homeowner could expect to work on their homes is early 2014.KLORs been a burden on county officials since 1994, when code enforcement officers began cracking down on the propertys multitude of violations. The park was never supposed to have anything but temporary mobile homes and campers, but over the years, permanent trailers and prohibited add-ons like wooden decks and Florida rooms became the norm.Code violations became unavoidably evident during a 2007 fire that destroyed several homes. Fire trucks had trouble traversing the narrow streets, which were made even more impassible because of illegally built structures, including housing for prohibited propane gas tanks. In 2003, the county determined the only way the park could come into compliance was to change its zoning, raze the existing structures and replace them with permanent houses. The Planning Commission in 2007 approved a site plan commissioned by the thenboard of directors. Thats when the rift between shareholders came to a head.Legal battleOn one side were those who opposed the site plan because most wanted the community to stay the way it was, despite the county maintaining the status quo was unacceptable. On the other side were those allied with the board of directors, many of whom saw either an opportunity to build nicer homes on the property or to sell their lots, which would be worth much more money under the new zoning especially during the housing boom.Shareholders against the site plan waged a series of unsuccessful legal battles, which delayed construction for years. But in 2009, shareholders ousted the board of directors who backed the site plan. This further intensified the dispute among shareholders and residents. Lopez-Recio, an architect and member of the newer board, quickly turned in a new site plan to the county. That plan angered many shareholders because oncewaterfront lots were turned into common areas.

Sarasota-based lawyer John Dent, representing Property Appraiser Scott Russell, wants Chief Monroe County Circuit Judge David Audlin to grant a summary judgment making Southeast Housing LLC pay up. Ahearing on the matter is set for April 1 at 1:30 p.m. at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. In 2007, the Navy transferred ownership of 890 Key West housing units to Southeast Housing LLC, a division of British conglomerate Balfour Beatty Communities. Last year, based on the earlier switch from federal to private ownership, thenMonroe 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. Dents argument, filed on March 18, is simple: When the ownership went from the federal government to a private firm, the tax-exempt status became void. The Property Appraisers Office, upon discovering the true nature of the transaction, filed liens, he wrote. After the conveyance to the plaintiff neither the prior property owner ... [nor] anyone acting in its behalf filed an application for any exemption. The plaintiff is not an exempt entity. The use of the property, leasing of the housing to active military and non-active military and civilian tenants, is not a recognized exempt use. Southeast attorneys, who sued in August to get the liens lifted, claim the liens are invalid and unenforceable because Borglum granted the initial exemption. State Rep. Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama City) is sponsoring a House bill and Sen. John Thrasher (R-St. Augustine) its Senate companion that would erase the tax lien in Monroe County and for military housing in other areas across Florida while granting future exemptions for Southeast. Those measures have earned the voting support of Keys Rep. Holly Raschein. The Senate bill passed 15-0 by the Appropriations Committee on March 21. Patronis is state chairman of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a corporate lobbying firm that the nonprofit Center for Media and Democracy concluded backs legislation that reach[es] into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit[s] huge corporations. 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. Mayor Craig Cates was the lone dissenting vote when the Key West City Commission approved a resolution opposing the state legislation. Supporters were acting like theyre taking advantage of us and I dont think thats the case, he said. Even though a private company owns them, they still benefit the military.Appraiser wants judge to order the paymentBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST THE EVERGLADESMiami Herald photo by CHUCK FADLEYThe Tamiami Trail bridge in the Everglades,which will allow water from the River of Grass to flow from north of the Tamiami Trail to the south,was dedicated March 19 with a ceremony attended by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar.The one-mile bridge is a few miles west of Krome Avenue and is the first of several planned bridges to allow water flow.Tamiami bridge finally completeIt was touted as a triumph of modern engineering when it opened in 1928, a road across the once-impassable Everglades that took 2.6 million sticks of dynamite and 13 years to construct.On March 19, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar led a celebration of a long-awaited, different sign of progress on Tamiami Trial: The completion of a one-mile bridge designed to begin healing the ecological wounds inflicted by a road that has blocked the flow of the Everglades for nearly 90 years.It truly is a crown jewel of an achievement, said Salazar, who snipped a red ribbon, then took a ceremonial first drive across the span in a hybrid SUV. The $81 million bridge, scheduled to open to daily traffic in a few weeks, ranks among the most significant Everglades projects to date.It sets the stage for the first breach later this year of a historic road that has been far more than just a lime rock-andasphalt barrier to reviving the shrunken, struggling River of Grass. The effort to get more water under the bumpy twolane black top, originally launched by Congress in 1989, has encapsulated all the numbing delays, doubts and disputes that have dogged the broader plans to restore the Everglades.The bridge took four years to build but it was a twodecade battle to simply get it started. Its a day that a lot of folks thought they maybe would never see, said Julie Hill-Gabriel, Everglades policy coordinator for Audubon of Florida. In all, about 200 environmentalists, federal officials, park managers and rangers came out to mark the milestone and take in a new postcard vista. For the first time, motorists can view vast, birddotted marshes past the L-29 levee to the north and a tangled jungle lining the Trail to the south. By itself, the bridge wont initially make much of a difference to the health of the Everglades at least until crews later this year remove the old road bed it replaces just a few miles west of Krome Avenue, which will boost current water flows by as much as 15 percent. When the project is completed by raising and reinforcing about 10 miles of the adjacent Trail to handle higher water levels, peak rainy season water flows could nearly double compared to the volume that passes through 19 culverts built under the old road. That should provide some relief to one of the driest swaths of the Everglades fed by the Shark River Slough, once a major artery of lifegiving water. The Trail, along with levees and drainage canals built in the 1960s, choked water flow to a fifth of its historic volume and profoundly altered the landscape, killing off marsh plants and driving away wildlife, with wading birds dropping as much as 90 percent in the park. The ripple effects extended down to a too-salty Florida Bay plagued by sea-grass die-offs and algae blooms. The big story is that water levels in the wetlands can go up and thats a very good thing,said Tom Van Lent, senior scientist for the Everglades Foundation. Reestablishing the broad sheet flow of the River of Grass rather than gushing water through narrow culverts also will start to help recreate natural conditions that shaped wildlife patterns and the ridge and slough geography that defines the Everglades marsh, he said. Besides just getting water across the road, there is a lot of stuff in that water: Fish, turtles, nutrients, sediments, Van Lent said. Anything that is in that water needs to get to the other side of the road. More to comeStill, while the bridge is a milestone, park managers and scientists acknowledge its also only a stepping stone, one piece of a complex multibillion-dollar overhaul of Everglades plumbing that will take decades to complete.Just for starters, to move the massive amount of water scientists say is needed to restore the Glades, a lot more bridging will be needed. The Interior Department, which oversees national parks, drew up blueprints in 2010 calling for an additional 5.5 miles of bridging. The $310 million plan, which would erect four more bridges of varying length along the Trail, has been authorized by Congress and is currently being designed. Salazar, who is stepping down as Interior secretary after championing restoration in 11 visits to the Everglades, said the Obama administration intends to shake the trees looking for money for the work, with one possible source the hundreds of millions of dollars coming to the state from the settlement of the BPoil spill in the Gulf. But it remains uncertain if a divided Congress dealing with sequester budget cuts will sign off on the proposal.For now, theres also not nearly enough water to send south through the Everglades and much of what there is isnt clean enough for the sensitive Everglades, tainted by too much phosphorus, a nutrient in farm, pasture and yard runoff that is damaging to sensitive Everglades plants.Now, much of it gets diverted down the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers, where it has triggered fish kills and algae blooms. Floridas plans to build more storage areas and artificial marshes to absorb the pollution, already delayed by a decade, have been pushed back another decade under the states latest $880 million clean-up expansion plan.Another ongoing $1 billion plan to add reservoirs and speed up work on the Central Everglades is on the fast track but wont work without additional bridging on the Trail. Beyond that, there are still unresolved technical questions. Still, for every other project to work, raising more of the Tamiami Trail is critical. There is no middle ground. Without a fix to this issue, Everglades restoration cant go anywhere, said Van Lent. The one-mile bridge got us as far as you can go. Now, you have to do the rest of the road.Itll help water flow, restorationBy CURTIS MORGANcmorgan@MiamiHerald.comSoutheast attorneys,who sued in August to get the liens lifted,claim the liens are invalid and unenforceable because Borglum granted the initial exemption.

I drive these roads every day and am astounded that there arent more fatalities than there are. I see drivers running at an estimated 70 mph and more on the Seven Mile Bridge, the Long Key Bridge and the Bahia Honda Bridge. Those passing zones in the 18-Mile Stretch are raceways. I constantly witness drivers passing on double yellow lines and in the center rightturn-only lanes. The lawlessness of the drivers in the Keys only adds to the death count. If you want to add some nice pictures to your article, drive from the 18-Mile Stretch to the triangle in Key West and shoot all of the signs along the road dedicated to those killed. There has to be dozens of those markers and Im sure they only represent a small percentage of those actually killed on US 1. If as many people died from drinking Florida orange juice as have died on U.S. 1 in the past five years, there would be a national outcry to do something about it. Has anybody really looked into the cause of the more than 40,000 highway fatalities each year? More than the number of soldiers killed in the Middle East wars since we invaded Iraq 10 years ago. Sounds like it might make a good story. Ron Wheeler MarathonLawmakers need to end practice of raiding housing trust, keep program for vulnerable stableFor the first time in years, economic forecasters believe Florida might have a surplus instead of a deficit as it prepares its annual budget, so the time is ripe for lawmakers to end the dishonest practice of diverting funds from specific accounts for use in general revenue. Specifically, leave the states Sadowski Trust Fund for affordable housing programs alone. In the past, lawmakers have chosen to sack the housing fund in order to avoid raising new revenue or killing some of their own pet programs, relying on the excuse of a budget deficit with holes that need to be plugged. The need to make up for insufficient revenue was never a good reason for diverting funds from special accounts, however, because it is not an honest way to balance the budget. The Sadowski fund was established for a good reason back in 1992: To improve housing for the people of Florida. It was never meant to be a piggy bank for legislators to raid every time they cant balance the budget, but thats what its been used for the last four years, depriving Floridas deteriorating housing market of hundreds of millions of dollars. By law, 70 percent of the funding is provided to local governments in all 67 Florida counties to improve housing. This money can be used for rehabilitation of existing empty housing, or to provide down payments and closing costs assistance to families in need. The other 30 percent is designated for improving existing apartments in dire need of repair. These are apartments that house Floridas most vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and persons with disabilities. The estimated appropriation for fiscal year 201314 amounts to $204 million, which includes $140 for local housing programs. This year, legislators dont have the excuse of a looming budget deficit, but theres another threat to the Sadowski money. This trick is a kind of legislative bait and switch that lets lawmakers sweep Sadowski funds into general revenue under the guise of using a windfall to cover their actions. The windfall comes from a settlement obtained by Attorney General Pam Bondi and her counterparts across the nation with mortgage banks involving abuses and unfair practices in lending. The discretionary amount for Florida comes to $334 million or so. Bondi did a good job of getting the Legislature to agree that it would use the funds for housing. Lets be clear: The money should be used to supplement existing housing programs, not as an excuse to once again raid the Sadowski fund and use the settlement funds for other things.

First of all, let me say to him thank you, Mr. Page, for his service to our country. He is what many Americans, including me, would call a good guy. All I can say is if you or a loved one is alone or in a public group and are ever confronted by a bad guy, a criminal or a thug armed with a gun or other lethal weapon and wanting to do bodily harm to you or them, I, for one, would wish Mr. Page were still carrying a firearm. Recently, one of the directors of the National Rifle Association who, when testifying before Congress following the terrible Sandy Hook tragedy, said, and I quote, The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. From Mr. Pages past experiences, it sounds to me like the kind of good guy he was talking about. Fred Zydeck Little Torch KeyDont trample rightsLetter writers Kenneth and Audrey Smith lament the fact that Congress has not passed any new gun laws despite Newtown and Columbine. Would the so-called assault weapons ban or background checks have prevented either of those tragedies? The answer is no, and trampling on the constitutional rights of all Americans because of the actions of a few deviants is not the answer. Knee-jerk reactions like Diane Feinsteins bill wont solve anything, as was proven the last time we had a ban like she proposes. John Arguelles MarathonCatastrophe loomsThe headline Keys get 3,550 building rights would seem to be great news to residential home builders and developers as well as those who wish to live, work or retire here. Unfortunately, the cost of owning any residence in the Keys, whether old or newly built, will be prohibitive because Citizens Property Insurance Corp. continues to charge exorbitant rates in Monroe County. If homeowners cannot afford windstorm/hurricane coverage, no bank will provide a mortgage and Realtors can watch the sales of homes, new or old, disappear. Our last hope in obtaining proper insurance rates from Citizens is Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, the volunteer activists who are even now in the Tallahassee attempting to open the eyes of our elected officials of the looming catastrophe Keys homeowners face if insurance rates are allowed to be applied improperly.

During a workshop last week, city commissioners received a staff report on the various permit programs regulating parking in the cramped historic district. During a wide-ranging discussion, they admitted their own leniency toward land development regulations is partly to blame.Such regulations dictate the number of required parking spots associated with wouldbe businesses as a function of zoning, square footage and other considerations.Victor and Cynthia Mills are converting a White Street storefront into a Honda showroom and moped rental business while expanding an adjacent coffee counter. City rules require 25 parking spots for the proposed redevelopment but there are only three available.On March 28, the citys Development Review Committee will consider a request for a variance to the land development regulation in a meeting beginning at 10 a.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street. Mills attorney Wayne Smith acknowledges in an application to the city that the Mills understand there is a finite amount of off-street parking spaces that everyone in the neighborhood must share, and said mitigation would be provided via bicycle racks and an emphasis on delivery rather than pick-up of rented vehicles.Linda Wheeler, also an attorney, has organized a dozen other area residents and business owners to object to the plan, which goes from the Development Review Committee onto the citys Planning Commission.She said the neighborhood welcomes Mills and applauds his efforts to rehabilitate the dilapidated structure.However, the incompatibility of the proposed moped rental business to this mixeduse neighborhood, and the density and traffic which would be created ... are simply too ambitious and intense for the size and available parking on his property. Commissioner Teri Johnston, whose District 5 includes the proposed business, said variances like the one proposed, along with those for single-family homes subdivided into apartments, need to stop. We as a city have to stop doing these things that are accentuating the problem, she said.Johnston:It shows city adds to the problemBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCollege head lays out visionThe head of Florida Keys Community College came away from a March 18 Board of Trustees retreat in Marathon with a list of longterm goals for the institution. President Jonathan Gueverra said the tone of the discussion was encouraging, helpful and very, very strategic. Central to the plan is expanding the colleges revenue base while increasing efficiency, in part by cutting employees. Gueverra said FKCC has adopted seven goals, the first four taken directly from a vision laid out by the 28-school Florida College System:Prepare students for careers.Increase college readiness and student success as determined by graduation and retention rates, among other metrics.Enhance distance learning, online instruction and hybrid courses.Expand and maintain access.Drawing from the above, Gueverra said an FKCC-specific goal is to attract underserved groups like veterans, minorities and high school students interested in dual enrollment coursework.Environmental sustainability both from an operations standpoint and through programs.Expand revenue while maintaining small classes. As the smallest institution in the 28-college system, we depend a lot on the state for funding but we also have a small population upon which to draw, Gueverra said. I think we have a real gem here, so how do we keep the institution at a size thats manageable given where we are and what were trying to do?He said he plans to present the five-member board with a plan for reorganization that would save around 3 percent of the colleges budget, which breaks down as around $300,000 given FKCCs $10 million annual budget.Thats a significant amount, Gueverra said. There will be some eliminations. Two or three years out, the college needs to go through some serious revenue-generating programmatic things as well as looking at increasing efficiency. On expanding access, Gueverra said hed particularly like to emphasize growth opportunities in the Middle and Upper Keys, which he said could be bolstered through partnerships with four-year institutions on the mainland.Cutting jobs, expanding access among prioritiesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Weve livened up the dessert staple.Recipe, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Tough weekend for Lady ConchsIn a drench of early-spring noon sun Saturday, Key West High softball coach Steve Wells sat on a bucket of balls near the left-field fence at the Back Yard. He was watching a morning game in the weekend tournament wind up and contemplating his own teams seven-game losing streak, which had been extended the night before by Santa Fe in an 11-1 game. Were struggling, he said, about a half hour before a game with Manatee in the four-team tourney that was hyperbolically dubbed the Clash in the Keys. Something needed to change in the Conchs seven games since defeating Marathon, 13-3, on Feb. 27, they had been outscored, 7217. Now, a clash with a strong team from Bradenton awaited. Designated the road team, the Conchs began on a high note, scoring a run in the top of the first inning against lefthander Kelli Gault when a one-out single by Devin Osterhoudt drove in Lauren Schoneck, who had singled, stolen second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Desirae Laguna laid down a sacrifice bunt, sending Osterhoudt to second, but she was tagged out after rounding the bag. No one knew than that the Conchs would get only one more hit the rest of the game. The Hurricanes came right back against Laguna, scoring twice in the first. With two outs, they tied the score at 11 when shortstop Selyne Casas threw wildly to first on a ground ball. Then Kiley King doubled off the centerfield fence to make it 2-1. In the third, Lauren Schoneck took a third strike, causing Wells, coaching at third, to yell down to the plate umpire, Cmon, Blue, you cant take the bat out of her hands like that thats terrible. Manatee scored two more runs in its third on a double by Hailey Hopkins that delighted the Manatee fans, who, content in the shade, were making a weekend of it. After the fourth inning, red-clad public-address announcer Wayne Goldstein announced, The steak [at the concessions stand] has run out but weve still got barbecued ribs. Hopkins, a right-hander, went to the rubber in the fifth and was immediately effective with her quick-moving pitches. She began by striking out Casas and Tamiya Major. While Major batted, Raquel Schoneck waited on deck. Cmon, Raquel, I havent seen you smile all day, Goldstein said through the fence to the center fielder, who was only a foot away. Im not happy, Schoneck said, and that state continued when she too struck out to end the inning. Down 4-1, the Conchs came to bat in the sixth. Weve got to score, ladies, Wells told them, but Lauren Schoneck, Osterhoudt and Laguna went down in order. Manatee then added a run in its sixth when Marriah Wise walked, stole second and third and scored on a single by Reese Byrne. Osterhoudt, at second base, turned a liner into a double play to end the inning. ASouthwest jet roared overhead just before the Conchs went down meekly in the seventh, Casas striking out to end the game. Afterward, Osterhoudt anticipated the end of a losing streak that had reached eight. We just havent been on our game, she said. It will come, it will come. Later in the afternoon, it did come as the Conchs edged Matanzas, 4-3. Key West finished 1-2 in the tourney, which was won by Santa Fe, which went 3-0. The 5-9 Conchs will conclude their home schedulewith a doubleheader Saturday against Flanagan at 10 a.m. and noon.But 8-game losing streak is now overBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOFTBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West High softball players leave the field after breaking their eight-game losing streak Saturday afternoon.Canes take field in Fort LauderdaleFour Spring Break games at the Sunshine Classic Tournament in Fort Lauderdale should prepare the Coral Shores High baseball team for its upcoming conference and state district playoffs, said head coach Pat Meyers. Our goal is to play good baseball while playing good teams, Meyers said while preparing for a first-round game against C.D. Hylton, a strong program from Woodbridge, Va. Hyltons Bulldogs took the Monday game, 12-1. Highlights were not available at press time. The Hurricanes (7-8) will play at least four games at the Sunshine Classic, which attracted a dozen teams. Coral Shores comes back from Spring Break with South Florida Baseball Conference games at Marathon High School at 6 p.m. Tuesday and home against Palmer Trinity at 7 p.m. April 4. The Canes stayed within a run of visiting Spanish River High School in a Friday home game before the visiting Sharks pulled away, 7-2, in the final two innings. Spanish River competes in the states largest division, Class 8A. Coral Shores is classified as a 4Ateam. Hurricane pitcher Graham Miller had one of his best outings, holding Spanish River to three runs over four innings, Meyers said. Freshman Kyle Gates was solid in the catchers spot, the coach said.

How about 19 walksBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores leadoff hitter David Munoz makes contact in Fridays 7-2 loss to visiting Spanish River High School, a large Boca Raton school.Can anyone throw the ball over the plate? Apparently, not. The Key West High School baseball team, with its pitchers issuing 10 walks, lost to Rockledge, 15-3, in the Central Florida Spring Break Slam Tuesday morning at West Orange High in Orlando. The Conchs drew nine walks themselves in a game that, mercifully, was called after the top of the fifth inning by the 10-run mercy rule. Its disheartening, said coach Miguel Menendez. We have to throw strikes to give ourselves a chance. Im perplexed why we havent been playing better. It was the second loss in a row in the 16-team tournament for the 11-5 Conchs, who were defeated on Monday by Wellington, 10-5. And like in that game, they blew a 3-0 lead and were victimized by big innings Key West took advantage of Rockledge starter Andrew Parrishs wildness to score a run in the first and two in the second. But Rockledge (14-1) came back with six runs in the third against Brandon Presley, who walked three, allowed four hits and made an error in a 47-pitch inning. After Key West left the bases loaded in the top of the third, the Raiders came back with two runs in their half of the inning to make it 8-3. Presley was taken out after three innings and replaced with Marcus Brisson, whos normally an outfielder. Brisson walked five batters in Rockledges seven-run fourth, two with the bases loaded, before Menendez brought in Andy Perez, whos also normally an outfielder. Perez, walked only one but gave up a double and wasnt helped when shortstop Darren Miller made an error that prolonged the inning. The breakdown in Mondays game came in the fifth inning when the Conchs, who led, 4-1, let Wellington score nine runs. The Wolverines had six hits in the inning, including a successful suicide-squeeze bunt, and were aided by a Conch error, two mental lapses on foul pop-ups that prolonged the inning, two wild pitches and two hit batters. Pitcher Hunter Sellers, who had worked an effective three innings after relieving starter Andrew Freeman in the second, took the loss in his second varsity appearance. He was relieved in the fifth by Austin Kimbler, who hit two batters in his varsity debut. Key West led early, scoring three runs in the first, one on a double by Chris Garcia and two when the Wellington second baseman botched a grounder by Chris Varela. Freeman made his first pitching appearance of the season he had been limited to playing in the infield because of off-season shoulder surgery and was taken out after an 18-pitch scoreless first inning. The Conchs extended their lead to 4-1 in the fourth when Joey Figueroa singles, stole second and scored on a single by freshman Gregory Veliz. Their final run came in the seventh on an RBI ground-out by Darren Miller. Key West will play again at 1 this afternoon and conclude its trip with another game Thursday.Conchs fall to Rockledge in OrlandoBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEYWESTBASEBALLWeb extrasTheres a lot more Keys sports and outdoors news at www.KeysNet.com ,including: The Lady Canes of Coral Shores High close out the regular tennis season undefeated.

Easy: Pan-sear slices of it with butter and sugar. If you know how to make grilled cheese, you can make this dessert, which is a perfect ending to an Easter or any springtime dinner. Pan-seared pound cake is decadent and rich, so weve paired it with a fresh, minty fruit salad for balance. Looking for even more indulgence? Top the whole thing with whipped cream spiked with powdered sugar and orange liqueur. Looking for a little less indulgence? Opt for banana bread instead of pound cake and top the fruit salad with a dollop of nonfat Greek yogurt. What you need:Two tablespoons sugar, divided.Three navel oranges, peeled and segmented.One cup blueberries.One cup raspberries.One cup quartered strawberries.One tablespoon lemon juice.One tablespoon chopped fresh mint.Eight thick slices purchased or homemade pound cake.Two tablespoons unsalted butter, softened. In a medium bowl, combine one tablespoon of the sugar with the orange segments, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, lemon juice and mint. Stir gently, then set aside.Spread both sides of each slice of the pound cake with a bit of the butter, lightly coating the surface. Use the remaining tablespoon of sugar to sprinkle over both sides of each slice.Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium.
