Story, 1B Gaming ban as of today?AFlorida Keys crackdown on Internet cafes with online gaming appears imminent. Astate bill that prohibits Internet gambling devices, such as computers with slot-machine programs, likely will be signed today by Gov. Rick Scott, according to the Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times Bureau in Tallahassee. Once it becomes effective, we will follow the law, Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Tuesday. Well take a look at what the law says and what [operations] are up and running out there.House Bill 155, on the prohibition of electronic gambling devices, passed the Florida Senate, 36-4, Thursday, after passing the state House of Representatives, 108-7, March 22.The law clarifies existing gaming laws to more clearly define what constitutes slot machines, charitable drawings and amusement games, says a House summary. The family that owns Dennys Liquors in Key Largo used a vacant building to open The Place, a new Internet cafe with gaming, last month. So far as we know, it was completely legal, manager Nardy Diaz said Monday. We have no idea whats going to happen. Right now, it doesnt look so good. If advised by law enforcement that the Key Largo cafe violates the new law, it will close, Diaz said. We dont want to do anything illegal, he said. I worry that it will put so many people out of work.

And here some of them were Saturday evening, at Rex Weech Field, silverhaired in their late 70s, members of Key West Highs first state championship baseball team, happily reminiscing 60 years later and inspecting photographs that invoked memories forever fresh. Robert Lastres. Richard Salgado. Jerry Pita. George Haskins. Vincent Catala. Eloy Rodriguez. Of the five others, Gibby Gates is dead, Don Cruz and George Lastres couldnt attend, and Harold Solomon and Julio Henriquez couldnt be located. The team, which played in long-gone Wickers Stadium, had been one that made due with just three bats and a paucity of other equipment. On the way to the state finals, it defeated Lake Worth and future Cleveland Indians pitcher Herb Score. Then, on a Thursday in Fort Pierce, the Conchs defeated Tate for the Class Atitle, and on the next day edged West Palm Beach (whose roster included Burt Reynolds) for the AAchampionship. One of the black-andwhite photos showed the team in convertibles in the welcome-back motorcade, going down one-way Duval Street, passing cheering crowds and the Strand Theater, whose marquee advertised Barbara Stanwyck in Titanic. The mayor, C.B. Harvey, gave us the key to the city that day, Pita recalled The town raised money so the Conchs could go on to represent Florida in a tournament in Selma, Ala., where they lost in the title game but finished second out of eight states, I have a baseball from that game in Alabama, Sagaldo said from beneath a bushy white mustache, but its all rusty now. Another photo showed the players rawboned, smiling and wearing the basketball teams jerseys because thats all they had posed in Fort Pierce with their state trophy. Thats me, right there, No. 00, said Catala, pointing to a slender lad. I was about 170 then. Over 200 now. Along-sleeved Conch shirt covered the former shortstops slight paunch. Lastres, who had been the first baseman, joined the group, telling a reporter, I was No. 30, captain of this motley crew. He wore a Yankees jacket over a Vneck sweater and had on pinstriped dress slacks. Doesnt seem like 60 years, he said. Rodriguez, the right fielder, agreed: Cant remember what I had for lunch yesterday, but I can remember everything about that season.

Wagner joins the fire fightIslamoradas fire chief is asking commissioners serving on the board of Key Largos taxing district that oversees fire and ambulance services to reconsider their March 25 decision to break contractual ties with the Key Largo FireRescue Department. Chief William Wagner, leader of Islamoradas department the past 15 years, said during Monday nights board meeting of the Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District that the Islamorada, Tavernier and Key Largo departments work well together. He said disbanding Key Largos department would disrupt the harmony that exists among firerescue organizations in the Upper Keys. Wagner said all three departments provide good mutual aid. We have a very well balanced system. Disbanding Key Largos department will affect operations in the region, he said. Another veteran firefighter, Tommy Thompson, a retired assistant fire chief in Miami Beach, said breaking the contract with the Fire Department could have a slew of unintended consequences ranging from firefighters not being insured to the county taking over fire services and taxes going up.You are jumping the gun on this big time, Thompson said.One of the Key Largo commissioners, Tony Allen, is angry that the boards attorney told him before Mondays meeting to not discuss theVillage chief: Dont disband the departmentBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOTornado hits Big Pine KeyArare waterspout-turnedtornado came ashore on the south side of Big Pine Key around 2:10 a.m. Friday, causing damage along Long Beach Drive near Coupon Bight.Jon Rizzo, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Services Key West office, was on scene conducting a survey by 4:30 that morning. He estimated the tornado produced gusts between 75 mph and 80 mph and noted that a home anemometer recorded a gust of 93 mph. It left damage in its two-mile path and at its widest was 80 feet, according to the Weather Service. Rizzo said the majority of tornadoes that hit the Florida Keys an unusual occurrence are associated with tropical weather bands. In this case, he said the tornado was produced when a super-cell thunderstorm moving through the Lower Keys split into two sections.Among the damage, the Weather Service said Tuesday:Widespread damage to large limbs of native hardwood trees occurred and one royal palm snapped at a level above 15 feet.Aground deck with four kayaks became airborne,Wind gusts reach 93 mphLOWER KEYSSee Fire,2ASee Tornado,2ASee Baseball,3ASee Gambling,2AKeynoter Staff By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
If the 1,500 eager contestants take one step in front of the start line Saturday morning, the 32nd annual Seven Mile Bridge Run will automatically be a more successful than the 31st.The popular run was cancelled last year for the first time since its inception in 1982 due to torrential downpours and lightning strikes near the bridge. It looks like its going to be warm, but a lot can be change. That cant happen to us two years in a row. Im going to be optimistic about it, co-organizer Ginger Sayer said. The forecast is for scattered showers and around 80 degrees. The bridge will be closed to traffic at 6:45 a.m. sharp and reopens at 9 a.m., so of you have travel plans, plan ahead. And the Marathon-to-Key West shuttle will start service later than usual. Heading north, it will run starting at 9:28 a.m. Heading south, the time is 10:16. New this year was setting aside roughly 600 spots for Keys residents only on Feb. 7. The main registration was held Feb. 12. Sayer said Active.com, a company that does races across the country, handled the locals registration. There were a few glitches but the spots filled quickly. They were supposed to open at 6 a.m. I dont know what happened, but I started getting phone calls at 6 a.m. that it wasnt open. It was resolved between 7 a.m. and 7:15 a.m., she said. As always, the field includes runners from across the U.S. and Canada. Sayer said there are large contingents from New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia, as well as from Ontario, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri and North Carolina. Despite not actually happening last year, the race raised $65,000 for local youth through sponsorships. Of that, $49,000 was given to Keys high school athletic departments. In its history, the Bridge Run has been responsible for raising more than $1 million for athletics and other local charities. We couldnt do it without all of our volunteers. We have over 400 volunteers and so many of them do the same thing year after year, Sayer said. It takes a lot of people to dole out 14 cases of bananas, 18 cases (100 count) of oranges, 133 cases (798 gallons) of water and numerous cases of individual bottled water. Awards will be given outside the Pigeon Key gift shop in front of the Knights Key campground following the race. Beer and other beverages will be available.

The case started at her Narragansett Lane home at 5:45 p.m. Saturday, she told Sheriffs Office officials, when Burns reportedly got violent while drunk. She reportedly tried to call the Sheriffs Office, but he took her phone and keys. At one point, she said he grabbed her around the throat and began choking her, then hit her in the face, authorities said. Then he left in her 2010 Mercedes SUV.Monday, a neighbor told her Burns had returned, with her car, and was inside the victims house. She called the Sheriffs Office and Deputy Michael Claudy responded and found Burns hiding in a closet.

Usually in this type of situation, education is the first step, Herrin said. After Florida passed a law banning the synthetic marijuana widely known as spice, Herrin said, deputies told the stores selling it to stop. Most of them did. Then we proceeded to enforce the law against those that did not. On March 13, federal, state and local law officers raided and closed three Keys affiliates of the Allied Veterans of the World organization, a purported charity that Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and others said was a cover for illegal gambling that enriched the operators of more than 50 forprofit affiliated Internet cafes. Three South Carolina residents linked to the Gulf Internet Services storefronts in Tavernier, Marathon and Stock Island were arrested on numerous money laundering and racketeering counts. No arrests were made in Monroe County. Both members of the Keys state legislative delegation, Rep. Holly Raschein and Sen. Dwight Bullard, voted for the new Internet gaming law. Hundreds of Internet cafes with gaming opened throughout Florida in recent years, taking advantages of sweepstakes loopholes in an earlier law. Those became a blight on Florida for many years, House Speaker Will Weatherford said. The Florida Arcade Association claims more than 200 senior and childrens amusement centers could be impacted by the ban, according to the News Service of Florida.Gaming ban on cruise controlFrom Gambling,1Awith the dock dropped within mangroves beyond 30 yards from the original location.Alarge unmounted above-ground cistern containing nearly 200 gallons of water slid just over 15 yards, knocking a large camping trailer off its front mount.Bolts securing a large grill to ground decking were snapped while numerous tables and lounge chairs were carried to the leeward side of the property.

Several tents were overturned before the tornado likely passed into Spanish Harbor Channel.Tornado rips up Big PineFrom Story,1 issue in public.Allen said attorney Scott Black, who represents the board, told commissioners the meeting was not the time or place to talk about it. Black said he could not discuss what he told his clients, citing attorney/client confidentiality.Allen said Black told commissioners the issue should only be discussed during mediation sessions, which are not open to the public. The first session is scheduled for April 22. I said this should be discussed openly, but I was told to be quiet, Allen said. Blacks reported instructions are not sitting well with County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy, who represents Key Largo. I am very uncomfortable with an attorney telling an elected official to keep his mouth shut unless there is a legal reason for it, Murphy said Tuesday. Murphy said she thought something was going on when Allen and board Chairwoman Jennifer Miller remained quiet after comments made by Wagner and Thompson. The two are outspoken in their opposition to discontinue the Fire Departments contract. Commissioner Bob Thomas introduced the motion to sever the contract. Commissioners Marilyn Beyer and George Mirabella also voted for it. Their main criticism is Chief Sergio Garcia ignored recommendations on two independent audits, and they say he runs his department through fear and intimidation. Garcia, who could not be reached for comment, has repeatedly denied mistreating his firefighters, and most members who talked with The Reporter/Keynoter supported their chief. Beyer, Mirabella and Thomas want a department with a chief who is elected by the Fire Department board, which would be made up of members chosen by the commissioners. The chief is now chosen by all the Fire Departments membership. Thomas also said the chief should be answerable to the commissioners and not in charge of training or scheduling. Thomas said he was not swayed by Wagners comments. Chief Wagner is well aware of the problems with leadership in Key Largo, Thomas said.Wagner: System is working wellFrom Fire,1AChild-porn suspect remains jailedAKey Largo man registered with the state as a sexual offender remained jailed Tuesday on $301,000 bond following his arrest on Friday for allegedly possessing child pornography.Michael OShea Williams, 64, is charged by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office with 30 counts possession of child pornography and as well as possession of marijuana.Spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Detective Dan Mehler received a tip that Williams might have downloaded child porn from the Internet, and investigation revealed an IPaddress traced back to Williams. Asearch warrant was obtained for his home at 34 Avenue Ain Key Largo, and initial review of Williamscomputer showed the 30 child-porn images, Herrin said. Williams was convicted of possession of child porn in September 2004, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement records, but where wasnt immediately available. He was later placed on the states sexoffender list. The FDLE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Secret Service participated in Fridays raid.Williams on state sexual offender listCRIME FRONT WILLIAMS Crocodile might be nesting motherSightings of American crocodiles used to be rare in the Florida Keys, but as their state population rebounds, the animals are encroaching more and more into residential areas. The latest is a roughly 6to 7-foot croc thats taken up residence in a canal behind Tingler Lane in Marathon. Longtime resident Georgina Hosek had a close encounter Saturday evening as she attempted to launch her kayak from a small ramp on the canal. I almost stepped on it. She was out there resting, kind of halfway underwater. I didnt see her, Hosek said, adding it was the first croc sighting shes had in almost 40 years in the Keys. Generally, American crocodiles arent aggressive.Hosek said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission crocodile response officer Bill Billings went to her house, photographed the young female near the kayak launch and took pictures of an adjacent lot where she may have been preparing a nest. The lot is vacant and has piles of damp mulch the croc appears to have been digging through. Lindsey Hord, crocodile response coordinator for FWC, said he would be in Marathon on April 16 to inspect the lot and check whether the female laid eggs. Late March through early May is the typical time eggs are laid, he said.Its a little small for a reproductive female, but its not unheard of, he said. Weve gone from 200 to 300 animals [in Florida] two or three decades ago to around 2,000 in Florida now. Theyre still quite rare, but the Keys are in the core of where crocs are recovering.Hosek said shes not overly concerned about the crocodile, while Hord said the vacant lots owner isnt, either.They have adapted to people. They dont have a problem living around us, but we have a problem living around them, Hord said. Hord said the best course of action is to leave the animal alone and not to feed it. If a crocodile takes up residence near your property, its best to use fencing to keep pets and family away from the animal.Hord said crocs arent usually removed from where theyre nesting but that dealing with them is not a black and white thing.We hope through education we can get people to co-exist with them. If the animal is 9 feet or over in a residential area or high-use recreational area, and people are uncomfortable with its presence, well attempt to remove it, he said. But crocs are well known to return to wherever theyre removed from. For instance, a croc dubbed Crocodolly in the Upper Keys has made headlines for returning to a bayside neighborhood on Plantation Key three times in two years. The 8-foot female had been captured and taken to a remote area in the Florida Bay, then continually returned.Animal found near launch for kayaksBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCross fingers for Bridge RunCancellation isnt likely this SaturdayBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe croc is believed to be living around this kayak launch.An FWC crocodile expert plans to swing by to see if there are any eggs there.

Hawks Cay Resort will likely have to start from scratch when it replaces the newly remodeled Mexicanstyle restaurant on Duck Key Drive, according to Callahan.There was extensive damage throughout the restaurant, he said. As far as Im concerned, I think it was a total loss. Im guessing [more than $500,000] damage.Hawks Cay spokeswoman Dana Pucci said a cook that was in the building escaped the flames and called in the fire at 8:17 a.m. from the adjacent Duck Key Marina store. The restaurant is just in front of the marina. Callahan said Conch Key firefighters were the first to respond and were on the scene within four minutes. He said trucks also responded from Layton, Marathon and Big Pine Key. The fire was heavily involved and Callahan said the first truck kept the flames subdued while others secured a water source nearby.They kept it from extending out onto the dock or outside the restaurant, he said.Callahan said the cook was treated and released for smoke inhalation at Fishermens Community Hospital, as was a firefighter who sustained a minor eye injury.Firefighters were on hand most of the day Saturday putting out spot fires and doing salvage work. Pucci said Tios, which was remodeled and opened in mid-December, would remain closed indefinitely. All we know now is that the [cook] who had to go to Fishermens is in great spirits. There is still no determination as to what caused the fire, she said. As for the restaurant employees, Pucci said Hawks Cay is in the process of identifying other opportunities at the resort, so they can remain a part of the Hawks Cay team. She did not say how many people worked at Tios. There are several restaurants on the resort property, including Ocean, Alma, Sand Bar and Indies Grill.No timeline for reopening resort eateryBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDUCK KEY Suspended deputy awaits court dateAsuspended Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy is awaiting the scheduling of his arraignment following his Saturday night arrest for allegedly buying drugs on duty, in uniform and in his police cruiser from an informant as part of another investigation.Jaime Miranda, hired in 2008, faces three felony charges conspiracy to purchase narcotics, possession of synthetic narcotics and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and one misdemeanor charge for possessing drug equipment.Miranda, 30, was on duty when he bought 10 fake Oxycodone pills from the informant in the Winn-Dixie parking lot on Big Pine Key around 6:30 p.m., said Deputy Becky Herrin, an agency spokeswoman. Detective Sgt. Al Ramirez stopped Miranda shortly after the transaction. Ramirez found nine of the fake pills and one quarter pill in the glove compartment of Mirandas patrol car. Ramirez also found 12 hydromorphone pills in the car, and Miranda had a pipe in his pants pocket that contained marijuana residue, Herrin said. Miranda was booked into jail, suspended and released on $12,000 bond Sunday morning. Miranda is suspended without pay while detectives continue their investigation.

The good provisions in the bill include a clearinghouse within Citizens Property Insurance Corp. designed to keep policies out that belong in the private market and a new state agency designed to help private insurers find cheaper reinsurance. Other good provisions would establish an inspector general within Citizens and require that the state insurer follow the same procurement rules as other state agencies. All reasoned common sense measures.The bad provisions include making the Citizens president and chief executive officer a direct political appointee of the governor and state chief financial officer. The bill would weaken the Citizens board and remove the authority of the Office of Insurance Regulation to review and approve rates.In other words, a political appointee would set rates with little oversight. The bill would also codify the ability of Citizens to make loans to private carriers out of surplus, a move that generated considerable controversy when it was attempted last year. And as a gift to the powerful reinsurance lobby, it would increase the annual 10 percent rate cap by 30 percent to pay for expensive private reinsurance. All new Citizens policies after this July would no longer be subject to the 10 percent annual rate increase cap. In fact, in most rating territories, they would be set at no less than the highest average rate among the top 20 insurers writing in the state. According to a Citizens analysis of the rate impact this would have, personal lines residential policies would immediately increase by an average of 18.87 percent. Wind-only policies would skyrocket by an average of 54.49 percent. Not just new, but all policies on commercial residential, non-homestead and rental properties with less than a 12-month lease agreement would increase immediately.All standard multi-peril policies for homes with an insured value of $300,000 or more would also be subject to the higher rates. The impact on the real estate market could be devastating. This bill is advancing despite evidence from many that the current 10 percent glide path is working and will result in actuarially sound rates in most areas of the state within a few years. Nearly 300,000 Citizens policies moved into the private market in the latter part of last year without surplus loans and without huge rate increases. Dont wait until you open your next renewal notice to do something. Go to www.flsenate.gov contact your state senator and tell him to get rid of the bad and the ugly parts of this bill. Jay Neal Executive director Florida Association for Insurance Reform Lake Worth Celebrate serviceThis years theme for National Volunteer Week (April 21-27) is Celebrate Service. I cant think of a better theme to capture the spirit of the 162 members of the Mariners Hospital Auxiliary. This group of vibrant women and men willingly give their time, comfort and smiles while meeting the needs of Marinerspatients, patientsfamilies and hospital staff. Each Mariners Hospital Auxiliary member who range in age from 16 to more than 90 years old gives back to the hospital in a unique way, a way suited to their individual personality and talents. Caring volunteers answer questions and greet guests at the information desk in the Tassell Medical Arts Building. They operate the gift shop, donating the proceeds to the hospital for specific healthcare initiatives. In the early morning hours, they take patients to outpatient services where they are prepared for surgery. They lend a hand in Imaging Services and support the nurses on the hospital floors and in the Emergency Department. On behalf of Mariners Hospital, I extend a very special thank you to our many volunteers. They are an extraordinary group of people, providing exceptional service to our community. Rick Freeburg, CEO Mariners Hospital TavernierEnvironmental progress over past four decades is palpable, measurableIf dining on lionfish, paired with the proper wine, is your idea of environmental activism, then welcome to Earth Day in the Florida Keys. Breaking from tradition and, frankly, a bit too doctrinaire observances in the past, this years list of Earth Day events includes fun things like the lionfish dinner with wine, scheduled for April 16 at the Fish House Encore in Key Largo. The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary rolls out an Earth Day Movie Festival on April 20 at the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center in Key West. And for the 18th year, Bahia Honda State Park hosts its annual Earth Day Celebration April 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. That family-fun day covers the gamut, from a sand sculpture contest to fish printing and face painting, along with environmental exhibits all designed to engage the kids. The first Earth Day was celebrated April 22, 1970. For those who think this environmental awareness movement had little impact, here are some quick reminders:20 million people participated in rallies across the U.S. at the first Earth Day.By the end of 1970, lawmakers in Congress had created the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.Within five years, the EPAhad banned the insecticide DDTand Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act and established the first safety and emission standards for automobiles.By 1990, Earth Day was being celebrated across the globe, with 200 million participants that year. The folks at the Mother Nature Network suggest parents spend time with their kids talking about Earth Day and demonstrating a commitment beyond just talk.Engage your kids in recycling and awareness about what we throw away and what can be repurposed for other uses. Juice pouches, for instance, can be recycled into other uses. Visit www.TerraCycle.comfor other ideas.Take a walk. Sounds simple, doesnt it? But its good for your health and helps refocus on the natural beauty that surrounds us, especially living here in the Florida Keys.The Dolphin Research Center, mile marker 59 bayside on Grassy Key, is sponsoring a bridge cleanup as part of Earth Day activities.

Kerri Worthington Switlik School MarathonDont parade parentsHaving lost two daughters, I really resent the politicians and the media using the grief of the parents and families of the Newtown massacre to attempt to further their agendas on gun control no matter what side of the issue they are on. Losing a child is a loss that never goes away. Unless you have been there, you cannot have an understanding of such a loss. The president of the United States, as the leader of this country, continues to prolong this parade of parents to press forward with trying to convince the American public of his viewpoint, which then causes the opposing forces to do the same. I dont personally know any of these parents. However, I am sure, as in any group, there is support for all sides of this issue.So I suggest to all those who are using these tactics. Stop gun control or not, you are prolonging the pain of these parents and families in accepting the emotional question we all ask: Why? Which has no answer. It is impossible for them to pick up and go on with their lives given no other choice.Howard Gelbman Key LargoSnowbirds,help us outHope you snowbirds enjoyed our beautiful Keys.

AURELIEN DIEGUEZ ORNELASOn April 22,1970, 20 million people participated in rallies across the U.S.at the first Earth Day. By 1990,it was being celebrated across the globe, with 200 million participants. Porter: Drake will do fineDespite some criticism of his choice, Keys schools Superintendent Mark Porter says he made the correct decision in hiring Jim Drake as interim finance director for the Monroe County School District. Friday, Porter announced Drake will replace Ken Gentile on April 18 when Gentiles three-year contract expires.Those who keep tabs on the district immediately picked up on Drakes February 2012 departure from the Manatee County School District in Bradenton, where he was assistant superintendent for business services.In a report released in January, forensic accounting firm Navigant blamed Drake for creating a $3.4 million budget deficit for Manatee schools. The investigation concluded that former Assistant Superintendent Jim Drake failed to provide adequate supervision and oversight of the budget process, which resulted in budget shortfalls that ultimately resulted in the deficit not being detected until after the end of the fiscal year, the report says. School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths defended Porters selection of Drake as well informed, while board member Ed Davidson called Drake highly controversial. Board member John Dick said Drakes performance would weigh on Porters annual evaluation.Porter said he is well aware of the Navigant report ... and I have read the entire report in detail. I have also spent several hours with Mr. Drake discussing some of the details of the Manatee situation and I find his ownership of what happened and his explanation to be credible and he does so with great integrity.According to his resume, Drake spent 22 years as an audit coordinator with the Florida Auditor Generals Office overseeing the Orange, Lake and Osceola school district audits. He also served as finance director for Lake County and Manatee County schools. Drakes proposed contract, which the School Board was scheduled to take up Tuesday, is worth $47,040 (about $480 per day) and runs April 15 to Aug. 31.Davidson said the board would have to vote not necessarily on the person but on the contract, as it exceeds Porters $20,000 spending cap. Personnel matters are statutorily the purview and authority of the superintendent, Davidson said. It is generally accepted practice that the School Board receives the superintendents recommendations and approves unless the recommendation is rejected for good cause.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSAnother BPproject IDdAproposal to map and restore Florida Keys shallowwater habitats needed by tarpon and bonefish will be submitted to the Monroe County Commission on April 17.County Mayor George Neugent will seek the commissions support in listing the large-scale restoration of channel and bank habitats as a local project submitted for funding consideration under the Restore Act, part of the BPDeepwater Horizon settlement. Initial estimated costs for the plan, proposed by the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust and already endorsed by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, run from $3 million to $4 million. Recreational fishing in the Florida Everglades region has an annual economic impact [of more than] $1 billion and supports an estimated equivalent of 12,000 full-time jobs, says the project proposal from the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, working with CSAOcean Sciences Inc. of Stuart. Keys Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton wrote in a supporting letter that the project could contribute toward the sanctuarys 2007 action plan to assess and repair critical habitats by restoring grounding-impacted seagrass meadows, monitoring restoration and reintroducing living corals and seagrass. The project should be considered a high priority for the sanctuary and the Florida Keys community, Morton said.As proposed, the project would update the state of scarred flats and identify the most important areas with advice from Keys fishermen.Five pilot areas would be restored, marked to prevent future grounding, then monitored to gauge the success of the effort. Benefits of the program would be preserving water quality, improving fisheries, creating jobs, and sustaining our natural resource heritage, a report says.Neugent is a member and past chairman of the Sanctuary Advisory Council.Mark Fonseca, senior scientist with CSA, would supervise the project.The Restore Act allocates a portion of fines paid by Deepwater Horizon defendants toward various economic and environmental projects to offset damage from the actual spill and its threat.The County Commission meets April 17 at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.Restoration of seagrass is floatedCOUNTY COMMISSION By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

Under a proposal announced by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (RMich.), a popular tax deduction for equipment purchases would become permanent and be set at $250,000, aside from annual adjustments for inflation. Known as the Section 179 deduction, its scheduled to drop to $25,000 next year after having been at $500,000 from 2010 through 2013.If the proposal becomes law, it could give owners some predictability something theyve been clamoring for given the large list of other uncertainties theyve been sacked with such as health care, minimum wage and the economy. The deduction has fluctuated in recent years and has made it difficult for small businesses to plan.Not knowing what the deduction will be forces business owners to play a sort of roulette do they buy a drill press or an SUVbefore the end of the year and take advantage of the current deduction, or wait to see what the new year brings? There are ramifications for the broader economy that go beyond the boost from spending on equipment. If small-business owners have a better idea of how much money they might save on their taxes, they might feel more secure and then expand and hire. Small businesses account for more than 99 percent of U.S. companies, and they employ about half the countrys work force, or about 60 million people. One of the greatest sources of uncertainty about the deduction is the fact that Congress has been erratic in setting the amount of the deduction and sometimes has made changes retroactively. In January, Congress gave final approval to a bill that boosted the 2013 deduction to $500,000 from a planned $25,000 but many owners had already made purchases in 2012 expecting a smaller deduction in the coming year. People were making decisions they normally wouldnt be making at the end of last year, says Brian Burt, an attorney with the law firm Snell & Wilmer in Phoenix. His clients include small businesses in the manufacturing, financial services and software industries. That uncertainty makes for bad decision making, Burt says. One of his clients, a consumer products manufacturer, bought new machines at the end of the year to increase its capacity. Another manufacturing client invested in new software.The deduction, named after a section of the federal tax law, allows small businesses to deduct up front the costs of equipment such as vehicles, manufacturing machines, furniture and computers.The deduction is important and popular because it allows small businesses to get a tax savings on the entire cost of equipment in the year it was purchased. Without it, they would have to depreciate the costs over a period of years, which varies according to the type of equipment. Companies that get a refund get a boost in their cash flow from their tax savings. The Section 179 proposal is pretty big because it affects everybody, says John Arensmeyer, the CEO of Small Business Majority, a group that lobbies on behalf of small businesses. The deduction was created as part of the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 a law passed to help the country emerge from the 1980 recession. In 1982, the year it took effect, the deduction was $5,000. Congress increased it through the years until it reached $125,000 in 2007. It doubled to $250,000 in 2008-09 because of the recession and subsequently rose to $500,000.Deduction would become permanentJOYCE ROSENBERGAssociated PressTAXESSmall businesses account for more than 99 percent of U.S.companies, and they employ about half the countrys work force.
Adecidedly Key Weststyle romance played out Saturday on Caroline Street at the historic seaport with a little help from local police. Lisa Buchanan, a 44year-old homeless woman, walked up to Officer. Thomas Clark in the 400 block of Caroline and started a conversation about 10:45 p.m. According to Clarks report, Buchanan asked: If I give you marijuana, will you take me to jail? I said, Yes, Clark replied. At which point Buchanan reached into her pants pocket, produced a burned, small rolled cigarette containing less than 1 gram of marijuana and handed it to Clark. Buchanan told me she wanted to go to jail because her girlfriend had been previously arrested and she missed her, he wrote in his report. Clark reported that Buchanan had slurred speech, glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol. She is charged with misdemeanor possession of drugs and is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island in lieu of $500 bond. The Monroe County School Board will likely join the local opposition to companion bills in the Florida House and Senate that would codify a property-tax exemption for privately owned military housing.Board member Robin Smith-Martin presented to his colleagues a resolution spelling out the School Districts objection in a meeting after press time on Tuesday at Marathon High School.We provide this valuable public service to military families, Smith-Martin said, and we would never expect the military to pay [property] taxes ... but certainly their for-profit corporate partners should.John Thrasher (R-St. Augustine) successfully offered an amendment to his Senate Bill 354 limiting the exemption to units actually occupied by military personnel, not those units rented to the general public. That passed with a 40-0 floor vote on April 4. Keys Rep. Holly Raschein offered an analogous bill to the House Economic Affairs Committee on April 1 but that was voted down 16-1.In 2007, the U.S. Navy transferred ownership of 890 military family houses to United Kingdom-based Balfour Beatty Communities subsidiary Southeast Housing LLC. The Navy retains ownership of the land but the forprofit British company now owns the housing. Last year, then-Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum decided private ownership means the houses are subject to local property taxes and filed an $11.5 million lien, including penalties and interest. Balfour Beatty is fighting that.The Key West City Commission has passed a resolution similar to the one considered by the School Board. U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia has come out against the exemption.

He also was charged with interference with an officer after attempting to discard his speargun and catch bag. Acrewman aboard the Sea Dweller III dive boat alerted the FWC around 1:30 p.m. after he saw the diver in the crowded canal not using a required diver-down flag.Officer Bobby Dube, an FWC spokesman, noted that the dive-boat witness already had been accepted to attend the agencys law-enforcement academy that begins in May.Officers reported intercepting Wilmoth as he worked the sea wall in the canal, used by commercial and recreational boats.

In the seaport behind 951 Caroline St., access to Conch Harbor takes boaters past U.S. Navy and Coast Guard waterfront. The proposed addition of about 200 linear feet of dockage for a total of 611 feet has Navy staff concerned that boaters staging for the fuel pump will line up inside the restricted military area. The Key West Bight Management District Board is scheduled to discuss the matter at 5 p.m. today at Old City Hall on Greene Street. Navy officials and marina staff sat down Feb. 28 to discuss the issue with Conch Harbor Marina owner Craig Hunt, with Bight Board member Dan Probert acted as board liaison.From a report hell submit today: It was agreed that the neighborly thing to do was for the area marinas to embark on a program to provide the restricted area information to boaters traversing the area.To this end, it was suggested that a handout be prepared that could be given to marina users and prospective users that would present this information. That handout has been prepared and it highlights the militarys 100-yard restricted area around whats called Pier D-1, and also identifies the appropriate area for vessels waiting for the fuel pump to stage.Other steps to warn boaters off the restricted area included additional signs mounted on buoys and Conch Harbor staff agreeing to, if necessary, contact infringing boaters using either marineband radio or a bullhorn.The Bight Management Board make recommendations to the Key West City Commission, which has final say in any approvals.Naval Air Station Key West spokeswoman Trice Denny said her command filed an objection last year when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was considering permits for the expansion, which were ultimately approved.From that letter, sent by Commanding Officer Capt. Pat LaFere: The proposed expansion creates security and safety concerns.

Its not a good recipe for winning, coach Luis Leal said. Marathon mustered just four hits against Miami Country Days eighth-grade starter. Carlos OFarrill, Raymond Crespo, Kyle Pierce and Jason Cadwell had one each. The Spartans scored a pair of runs in the first inning to take the lead, and added to it as the Dolphinsmental mistakes piled up. Marathon trailed 7-1 headed into the bottom of the seventh. OFarrill and Pierce both tripled in the inning, but it was the way Pierce was forced out at home that summed up the Dolphins day.

When you hear charter captains say the sails are tailing, this is to what they refer. The fish are actually sailing along the surface in pursuit of bait fish. Tailing conditions are not for the faint of heart, as they often entail wave action beyond the normal comfort level. But when the wind, the waves, the current and the color change all combine perfectly, an average day of sailfishing can turn into one of legendary status, with 20plus flags flying upon return to the dock. If you dont think this sort of rough-weather fishing is for you, no problem. Another elite game fish of the Florida Keys is available now at the bridges and in Key West Harbor: Tarpon, the silver king. The tarpon fishing venues typically offer very calm conditions, along with some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. Tarpon fishing is just getting started and will only improve as we progress through April and into May.

Later in the inning, Chris Garcia took a third strike with the bases loaded.St. Brendan went ahead 42 in the sixth, helped by an error by shortstop by Gregory Veliz that let in one of the runs.Left-hander David Piotkin took over for Diaz in the bottom of the sixth and the Conchs took advantage of his wildness four walks and a wild pitch to tie the score at 4-4. Key West had a chance to score more runs but Miller, as Garcia had in the fifth, was called out on strikes with the bases loaded.The next three innings were scoreless, but the Sabres broke through in the 10th against reliever Brandon Presley with four runs on three doubles and a sacrifice fly.The Conchs, who went scoreless the last four innings against Yaniel Cabrera, who had relieved Piotkin, would give anything for a double. It was their sixth consecutive game without an extra-base hit. They had 10 singles and were walked 10 times. Its a big concern, coach Miguel Menendez said Monday of the teams sluggish bats. Our hitting is the biggest difference between early in the year and now. We pitched well early, made some defensive miscues, but when we got guys on base, we came through with big hits. Now we seem to be pitching well, were still making defensive mistakes, but we havent gotten a big hit in a while. We have four games to figure it out. Miller worked eight innings and probably deserved a better fate. He should have given up one run at the most but unfortunately we didnt make the plays we needed to make that happen, Menendez said. The Conchs will play at 4 today at Benjamin High in North Palm Beach. They will host Trinity Christian at 8 Friday and Saturday night. The last regular-season game will be at 4 p.m. next Wednesday at Rex Weech Field.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALLWeb extrasCatch all of your local sports at www.KeysNet.com /sports ,including:The Key West High soccer team will get a new coach,as Rob Eggers is being replaced after two years.The tennis Conchsseason is over but coaches say the outlook for next season is pretty bright.
Nothing is more frustrating than finding the perfect cucumber or head of lettuce, paying top-dollar for it, and then ... tossing it out a week later when it has gone moldy or slimy in the refrigerator. No doubt one reason so many of us eat too many convenience foods and too few fruits and vegetables is that it can be hard to get our busy schedules in sync with the produce we bring home with the best of intentions. Food scientists, however, have discovered a remarkably effective way to extend the life of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables by days or even a week. It doesnt involve the chlorine solutions, irradiation or peroxide baths sometimes used by produce packagers. And its easily done in any home by anyone. This method, called heatshocking, is 100 percent organic and uses just one ingredient that every cook has handy hot water.You may already be familiar with a related technique called blanching, a cooking method in which food is briefly dunked in boiling or very hot water. Blanching can extend the shelf life of broccoli and other plant foods, and it effectively reduces contamination by germs on the surface of the food.But blanching usually ruptures the cell walls of plants, causing color and nutrients to leach out. It also robs delicate produce of its raw taste. Heat-shocking works differently.When the water is warm but not scalding (temperatures ranging from 105 to 140 degrees work well for most fruits and vegetables), a brief plunge wont rupture the cells. Rather, the right amount of heat alters the biochemistry of the tissue in ways that, for many kinds of produce, firm the flesh, delay browning and fading, slow wilting, and increase mold resistance.Along list of scientific studies published during the past 15 years report success using heat-shocking to firm potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, and strawberries; to preserve the color of asparagus, broccoli, green beans, kiwi fruits, celery, and lettuce; to fend off overripe flavors in cantaloupe and other melons; and to generally add to the longevity of grapes, plums, bean sprouts and peaches, among others. The optimum time and temperature combination for the quick dip seems to depend on many factors, but the procedure is quite simple. Just let the water run from your tap until it gets hot, then fill a large pot of water about two-thirds full, and use a thermometer to measure the temperature. It will probably be between 105 and 140 if not, a few minutes on the stove should do the trick. Submerge the produce and hold it there for several minutes (the hotter the water, the less time is needed), then drain, dry and refrigerate as you normally would. Researchers still are working out the details of how heat-shocking works, but it appears to change the food in several ways at once.Many of the fruits and vegetables you bring home from the store are still alive and respiring; the quick heat treatment tends to slow the rate at which they respire and produce ethylene, a gas that plays a crucial role in the ripening of many kinds of produce.In leafy greens, the shock of the hot water also seems to turn down production of enzymes that cause browning around wounded leaves, and to turn up the production of heat-shock proteins, which can have preservative effects. The optimal time and temperature for heat-shocking fruits and vegetables varies in response to many factors in particular, whether they were already treated before purchase. Use these as general guidelines.Asparagus: Two to three minutes at 131 degrees.Broccoli: Seven to eight minutes at 117.Cantaloupe (whole): 60 minutes at 122.Celery: 90 seconds at 122.Grapes: Eight minutes at 113.Kiwi fruit: 15 to 20 minutes at 104.Lettuce: One to two minutes at 122.Oranges (whole): 40 to 45 minutes at 113.

In my side yard, three massive piles have merged to become my own personal Mulch Everest the result of three truckloads of tree-trimmer goodness that were deposited just a few days ago. It is up to me to spread my Everest, and I relish the task. Not only will the mulch beautify my plantings and slowly decompose to add organic nutrients to my soil, I will also get a very nice bit of exercise. Why should I spend hours on the elliptical machine or pounding the free weights when an excellent full-body strength and cardio workout is piled high a stones throw away? I will spread my mulch, which will enrich my gardens poor soil and help to suppress weeds, and as I do, my home gym will come to life.There are countless ways to exercise in your garden pulling weeds, tilling soil, pruning trees and digging holes are all outstanding ways to stay fit. Add in South Floridas warm temperatures and you have the makings of a weight-loss and bodystrengthening routine that you can be proud of. Working in your garden also has the added benefits of fighting depression and synthesizing vitamin D. Simply Google Ways to Beat Depression and you will find page after page advising you to expose yourself to sunlight each day and exercise, among other worthy tips. And while you are spending time in the sun improving your state of mind, your body is able to make vitamin D, which is responsible for intestinal absorption of crucial calcium and phosphate. Finally, working in your garden is also good for your mind. I have a degree in horticulture and have read countless books on the subject, but I have had no greater teacher than my garden. Working in the garden allows me to see exactly what will work and why. By paying close attention to what I see, I have access to a world of knowledge.
