WWW.KEYSNET.COM SATURDAY,APRIL 13,2013 VOLUME 60,NO.30 25 CENTS Off to GladesThirty-seven Keys athletes are heading to the states regional track-and-field meet.Story, 1B In LAttitudesIf its April,it means its time for the Conch Republic to celebrate its independence.Story, 6B Staff with the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier,including wildlife rehabilitators Amanda Margraves and Erin Ulrey,oversee the Easter release of two great horned owl fledglings not far from where they hatched on a Florida Keys Electric Cooperative tower in Islamorada.Estimated to be just over two months old,the birds are the first great horned owls known to be hatched in the Keys.Their mother,underfed when taken into care by the center,also was released after recovering.Photos courtesy JILL HAYES/ WILD BIRD CENTERKeys dodge Citizens bulletThe Florida Keys dodged yet another Citizens Property Insurance Corp. bullet Thursday when amendments creating a carve-out exception for Monroe County were added to a controversial Senate Bill that could authorize substantial rate hikes by the state insurer of last resort.State Rep. Holly Raschein, together with nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe and Monroe County lobbyist Floridian Partners, brokered the changes to the law, Senate Bill 1770. Monroe property owners were facing premium increases of up to 137 percent but now wont. But new policies in the rest of the state would face higher rates. The average Keys property owner pays $2,900 in annual Citizens premiums. If the 137 percent hike $3,973 went through, that $2,900 policy would have cost $6,873.The Florida Senate recognized that Monroe County residents face unique challenges in the property insurance marketplace and I am committed to continuing to raise awareness of the special needs of our district, Raschein said.Raschein referred to Keys residents having no other option for windstorm insurance coverage, and banks require anyone with a mortgage to have a policy. Citizens spokesman Michael Peltier said that as of Feb. 28, Citizens carried 24,994 residential and commercial policies in the Keys. The vast majority, around 21,000, are coastal residential wind policies.In addition to the premium relief, an amendment was added to the bill exempting the Keys from a prohibition against insuring homes over a certain value. It was supposed to drop as low as $300,000, but a $1 million limit will remain in place in Monroe.Lastly, language was added from Rascheins House Bill 819, which would add an additional member to the Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology.Lawmakers exempt Monroe County from 137 percent increase in premiumsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWINDSTORM INSURANCE MOVING OUT Dredging plan draws lots of oppositionAnearshore channel last dredged half a century ago may stir up muddy waters Thursday in Marathon.A700-foot channel into Walkers Island, near Duck Key, needs to be deepened and widened to allow boaters access and to protect adjacent shallows, say supporters of a proposed change to Monroe Countys comprehensive plan.Conservationists say the proposal, if established as a precedent, poses a threat to Florida Keys marine environments already under stress.The debate winds up before the County Commission at a special 10 a.m. Thursday session at the Marathon Government Center.The Keys basically have not had dredging since 1972, and were still paying the price for the destruction that took place back then, said Dottie Moses, environmental-committee member with the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowners Associations. This would reopen that door. Sandy Walters, a planning consultant for Little Conch Key Development Corp., describes the plan as a positive step toward solving a problem that already exists. The developers own the submerged shallow bottom leading to Walkers Island, where they have building rights for eight units. The channel was created sometime in the 1950s but has not been maintained since. Over the decades, it has filled in, creating a shallow trench only a half-foot deep in some spots. Seagrass and other bottom growth have taken hold in areas. Walters said without a marked channel to guide boaters, a nearby seagrasscovered flat has been gashed by numerous propeller scars.The main fear is damage to seagrass bedsENVIRONMENTEarly forecast: Nine hurricanesThe first forecast for the six-month 2013 hurricane season came out Wednesday, and it doesnt look much different than what happened in the 2012 season.Professor William Gray and research scientist Philip Kloztbach from Colorado State Universitys Department of Atmospheric Science say the Atlantic basin can expect 18 named storms, 95 named storm days, nine hurricanes, 40 hurricane days, four major hurricanes (sustained winds of 111 mph or higher) and nine major hurricane days.Last year for the season that runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, there were 19 named storms, nine of which attained hurricane strength at some point. But it was the seventh consecutive year a hurricane didnt make landfall in Florida, which National Hurricane Center spokesman Dennis Feltgen said is a record dating back to 1851. The main reason for this years forecast, the Colorado State team said, is largely due to an expected lack of an El Nino.

Woode, a development firm with offices in Charleston, S.C., and Chicago, Ill., wants to renovate the Days Inn, Waffle House, Lexington Hotel, Comfort Inn, Quality Inn and Conch Tour Train station at U.S. 1 and North Roosevelt Boulevard, colloquially known as the Triangle.Were hoping to restore these hotels so its as close to new product as we can, John Gonzalez, Woode director of reporting, told the Keynoter The development plan goes to the citys Planning Board on April 18, then on to the Key West City Commission on May 21. Both meetings start at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street. Its a chance to really improve that area, Gonzalez said. Weve kind of pushed this well beyond past due. Assuming we can get through the Planning Board and the final City Commission hearing, well start really as quickly as possible.From there, Gonzalez said the goal is to get the 534 rooms, out of a total in Key West of about 5,500, back in operation early in 2014. The four hotels employee around 155 people. The basic plan is to keep the hotel structures while gutting the rooms, changing the exteriors and upgrading lobby and other common guest areas.Gonzalez said the person-Reconstruction at the Triangle goes to boardsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSee Hotels,2ASee Storms,3ASee Dredge,2ASee Insurance,2A

It would cover clothes, wallets and bags, handbags and backpacks, shoes and some other items up to $75, and school supplies up to $15, as well as some personal computers. The House will work out differences with a Senate version of the bill in a conference committee. News Service of Florida WKYZ Florida KeysPirateRadioKeyWest.com 96.7 FM 101.7 FM Keys News on the half-hour Daily (M-F) News Director Don Riggs M or nings 7:30 8:30 9:30 A f t er no ons 4:30 5:30 Raschein says the move benefits Keys interests.The new member would be a licensed professional structural engineer with expertise in wind mitigation techniques and a full -time member of the Florida State University System. This addition will provide the [insurance] commission greater insight and expertise, she said. FIRM was formed in 2006 when a group of Key West homeowners noticed a significant Citizens premium increase from the year before. The group has been fighting increases seemingly nonstop since and helped save homeowners millions of dollars.I dont think anythings a big win until we have a longterm solution, but its another battle won, FIRM President Heather Carruthers said.FIRM is in the process of choosing vendors for a $485,000 study, funded by Citizens, aimed at keeping Keys windstorm policy prices in check permanently.The study would employ three vendors to perform risk engineering, building survey and natural catastrophe risk analyses. Vendors were expected to be chosen April 2, with contract negotiations to follow. SB 1770 could come up for a vote Tuesday, when the Senate next meets. If approved, Peltier said the new rates would kick in on Jan. 1, 2014.Keys removedFrom Insurance,1A Protecting that flat would ensure net positive environmental benefits and long-term protective management of shallow seagrass beds. The Thursday meeting will consider four proposed comprehensive-plan changes, with three affecting uses of specific property on Key Largo and Stock Island. The channel-dredging proposal, which specifically applies only to submerged lands in private ownership, likely will draw the most interest. There may be 200 channels on privately owned bottom in the Florida Keys but only a fraction of those could meet standards laid out in the Walkers Island proposal, said Mayte Santamaria, assistant director of county Planning and Environmental Resources. The Monroe County Planning Commission in November recommended approval of the plan. The Marathon and Lower Keys Association of Realtors sent out a notice asking members to support the proposal for safe boating access appropriately balanced with environmental protection. Groups including the Miami chapter of the Sierra Club, the Lower Keys Guides Association and Save-A-Turtle have strongly urged rejection. Its just not a good idea, Save-A-Turtle President Rick Sall said. Seagrass in that are has grown over many decades. Turtles feed on that grass, and the flat is habitat for all the other things like conch and lobster that turtles need as groceries. The Lower Keys Guides opinion says the channel 30 feet wide and up to 4.5 feet deep would cut the seagrass meadow in half. Fragmented seagrass beds do not provide the same ecological values as continuous meadows, it says. Boat traffic that would then be generated would continue to erode away the remaining seagrass bed from the motion of boat wakes and by suspending bottom sediment. Lee Lucas, who runs First Love Charters tarpon and offshore charters from Duck Key, said a properly supervised project does not concern him. There are so many houses now that you cant get to unless its high tide, Lucas said. If we cant maintain the channels, we lose the access weve got. Even if approved at the county level, the project would still require permits from state and federal regulatory agencies.Hearing ThursdayFrom Dredge,1Anel transition is something were working through currently. With such a short construction time frame, youre going to be working on the pre-opening pretty quickly.Jessica Bennett, director of market research for the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, said the biggest impact would be on lodging properties with similar price ranges, in the $100 to $200 nightly range. What will likely happen is other budget [hotels] will be able to increase their price through less competition in their tier, she said. There are six tiers of lodging in Key West: Luxury, upscale, mid-price, economy, budget and small properties. Data compiled for the TDC by Smith Travel Research indicates an average daily rate in 2012 of $152.34 per night at budget properties like the four owned by Woode, and an average occupancy rate of 72.5 percent. Woode, which has holdings valued at more than $1 billion, purchased the four hotels from the local Spottswood Cos. in 2005 and 2006. The two companies co-own the Beachside Marriot directly across the street from the proposed construction site.Rooms to closeFrom Hotels,1AKimball: Park will be flexibleAfinal plan for managing Florida Bay waters will change from the National Park Services preferred alternative now being publicly reviewed, Everglades National Parks superintendent said Wednesday. We will take the good ideas and incorporate them into the plan, Superintendent Dan Kimball told a large crowd at a Key Largo comment session. We are listening and learning. Nearly 20 speakers voiced many of the same concerns raised at previous sessions on Florida Bay rules, namely that recommended Florida Bay rule changes would seriously hinder Keys recreational anglers and professional fishing guides. As proposed, an updated management plan would declare about a third of the parks Florida Bay water more than 131,000 shallow acres as pole-and-troll zones where combustion motors could not be used. Navigation would be limited to push poles or electric trolling motors. Many shallow areas less than 2 feet deep at low tide already show the signs of propeller scars that damage seagrass, park staff said. Steve Friedman of the Florida Keys Fishing Guides Association said Wednesday that the group has repeatedly expressed strong concerns about certain aspects of the plan. Those include large some pole-and-troll zones that would require more than half a mile of no-motor navigation, the closing of several channels and traditional routes well-known to experienced bay anglers, and a nomotor designation for Long Sound, a favorite area for many Key Largo guides. Some areas that can be traveled in 25 minutes by a flats skiff at idle speed would need three hours to cross by push paddle, Key Largo guide Richard Brown said. Youve got to bend some and youre not bending, guide Gary Mitchell told park staff. The people doing the damage are not us.... We dont hurt the park but your plan hurts us more than anybody else. Kimball said assertions that the plan would be adopted as presented were not true. We are prepared to meet with guides and individuals, and get with them on the water, he said. Proposals to replace some pole-or-troll zones with idlespeed zones may have merit, Kimball said. He said staff would then look at the plan and circle back to meet with boaters and guides local residents informally. Budget constraints will mean that any rules recommended in the plan could take a long time ... maybe years to implement, Kimball said. I dont know how long its going to be. Additional workshops on the park plan are scheduled:6 p.m. Tuesday at the Monroe County Government Center.6 p.m. Wednesday at the National Marine Sanctuary Eco-Discovery Center in Key West.ClarificationKey Largo guide Dave Perkins said a March 23 Keynoter story truncated his remarks in a way that could be misleading. Perkinsstatement was: The guides are not the ones screwing stuff up. We love the park. Even if you could find one who didnt care about it, he wouldnt want to gunk up his engine.Poll-and-troll opposition still strongEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARKBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Snowbird gets three yearsAKeys snowbird on Thursday was sent to federal prison for three years with no possibility of parole for trying to rip off dozens of people through small claims court.Bernard Seidling, 62, who lives in Eau Claire, Wis., and has a home on Duck Key, also was fined $10,000 by U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb in Madison, Wis. He had faced a maximum 1,000year sentence. He has to report to prison by May 21. Seidling earned this sentence with years of lies and fraud, said Assistant U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil, who prosecuted the case. He intended to cause a loss to the victims of over $370,000 the total amount of the false judgments he obtained. Seidling remains a con man with no insight into his behavior. Seidling was convicted of 50 counts of mail fraud on Dec. 26.Heres how Vaudreuil previously described Seidlings crimes, which took place from 2003 to 2009:Seidling filed suits in Wisconsin small-claims courts against individuals and corporations in which he lied about their addresses and attempts to serve them. He submitted false documents to convince the small-claims courts that he had process servers attempt to serve the defendants when, in fact, those attempts either had not been made or, as Seidling knew, would be unsuccessful because he knew the defendants did not live at the addresses he had provided. In each of these lawsuits, Seidling usually claimed the maximum allowed of $5,000.... He hid filings of the lawsuits from the victims of his scheme (the defendants in the lawsuits) and then obtained default judgments. Once he obtained these fraudulent default judgments, he filed them in the county where the victims actually lived or owned property and also used them to attempt to file wage garnishments against the victims and the victimsproperty.In sentencing Seidling, Crabb said Seidling had created lots of trouble for lots of people. Vaudreuil recounted that the judge said Seidling acted with an enormous amount of vindictiveness. She believed that the judgments he obtained were ticking time bombs set to go off when an unwitting victim sold a house, changed jobs, etc. Judge Crabb also stated that the offenses were not an aberration, but in her view reflect a way of life Seidling has chosen.Seidling filed for bankruptcy in U.S. District Court in Miami on April 18, 2011, and listed his address as 132 N. Indies Drive, Duck Key. That property, which is owned by a Wisconsin partnership, is assessed at $449,218.Another Duck Key property just down the road at 152 N. Indies lists Christine Seidling Bernards current or former wife as the owner. Its assessed at $1.03 million and has a homestead exemption tied to it, according to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office.Seidling shows vindictiveness in his crimesIN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffNew fees coming for taxi firmsSome taxi operators in Marathon have long requested increased regulation of the industry but not the kind approved Tuesday by the Marathon City Council. Island Taxi owner Sheila Wogan said the councils plan to charge taxi companies a $500 registration fee, plus $50 for additional driver and vehicle, is not the way to help local cab companies. They dont need to charge us more money; they need to do something about the illegal companies, she said. I wouldnt mind giving it to them if they wanted to do something for us. Let them run around and find these illegal taxis. The council also agreed to verify driverslicenses as part of its new regulations. Tuesdays vote was preliminary; the council must hold public hearings before enacting the fees. Wogan said she feels the fees there would also be a $250 annual renewal fee would drive taxi businesses out of Marathon.Keyhopper Transportation owner Patti Haws echoed Wogans sentiment. It could potentially put these companies out of business. The drivers could change weekly and they cant even police that, she said.Haws added that all 13 of her drivers already have their license verified by her commercial insurance carrier prior to being added to the policy. All we need is every three months, youve got all the plates and someone checks your insurance and makes sure the cars are roadworthy. Its really simple, she said.The Middle Keys have at least five taxi companies: Island Taxi, On Time Taxi, Bob Gnarley, Keyhopper and Taxi in the Tropics. But Wogan says there are illegal taxis that offer $3 fares and operate without a sign or business name on their cars. Cab companies, like any business, register for occupational licenses through the Monroe County Tax Collectors Office. Its a county license and the city has little oversight now. Councilwoman Ginger Snead floated the idea for cab company regulation last month and called Tuesdays decision a nice baseline start. Ive had two taxi people come to me this week and say we need regulation. Just because its a requirement to get an occupational license to drive a taxi doesnt mean everyone has gotten one, she said.Councilman Dick Ramsay was the lone dissenter Tuesday, saying he feels the proposal is over-regulation.We are charging a company and a driver $500. What do they get for $500? I dont know, he said. I havent gotten one complaint in my time on the council regarding a taxi company.$500 initially, then renewal, driver costsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Councilwoman Ginger Snead says a recent proliferation of taxi companies in Marathon needs to be addressed through regulation and fees.

Saturday,April 13,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com temperatures in the Pacific tend to push damp weather east. Astrong El Nino tends to minimize hurricanes during the storm season. The Colorado State researchers say there is a 72 percent chance that a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) could make landfall along the entire U.S. coastline. That goes down to 48 percent for the U.S. East Coast including peninsula Florida. On the Gulf of Mexico side, they forecast a 47 percent chance of landfall from Floridas Panhandle to Brownsville, Texas. Last year, the primary storm to affect the Keys was Hurricane Isaac, which blew through as a tropical storm Aug. 26 and 27. Sustained winds in the Keys were 45 mph to 50 mph. Damage was minor but a lot of rain fell.Hurricane Sandy, which caused billions of dollars in damage and killed more than 100 people in the Northeast in late October, only mildly affected the Keys, as just strong winds from Sandys outer bands were felt.Gray and Klotzbach will update their seasonal forecast on June 3 and Aug. 2. The National Hurricane Center issues its first hurricane season forecast toward the end of May.Forecasters: Be preparedFrom Storms,1ASandy retired as storm nameSandy is being retired from the list of tropical storm names because of the catastrophic damage its massive size and strength caused along the East Coast last year. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials say the name Sara will take its place. Sandy was retired Thursday from the official list of Atlantic Basin tropical storm names by the World Meteorological Organizations hurricane committee.Storm names are recycled every six years unless theyre retired because of extreme damage or a considerable number of casualties.Sandy is the 77th storm name taken off the list since 1954. The National Hurricane Center has attributed 72 deaths from Maryland to New Hampshire directly to Sandy, though some estimates were higher. It wiped out entire neighborhoods and was one of the countrys costliest natural disasters.Its the 77th taken off list in 58 yearsAssociated PressHURRICANE SEASON Snafu in bid to design city hallAlocal-preference law mix-up Tuesday is forcing the city of Marathon to reconsider a vote awarding Key West architect William Horn the right to design its new City Hall.The City Council narrowly (3-2) approved allowing staff to negotiate with Horn ahead of second-place bidder Solaria Design & Consulting Co., a Marathon-based company.The decision reportedly did not sit well with Solaria President Steve Grasely because the council didnt take into account the local preference for local contractors. That allows Marathon businesses to get a 10 percent higher ranking on projects than outside firms. Grasely is out of town and was unavailable for comment Thursday and Friday. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said he is working to resolve the issue.I believe that by early next week everyone is going to be happy. Im working on a resolution that I believe will satisfy all concerned, and it wont delay the project, he said, declining to elaborate further.Horn, Solaria and six other firms were ranked by a city committee comprising Community Services Director Debbie London, Public Works Manager Carlos Solis and Community Image Advisory Board Chairman Peter Chapman. Horns 94.6 ranking on a 100-point scale edged Solarias 91.6. Chapman ranked Horn higher (100-90), while London ranked Solaria higher (94-93) and Solis gave each the same grade (91). Councilman Dick Ramsay inquired, and was told during the meeting, that staff had not adjusted the rankings to include the local preference. Including it would put Solaria well ahead of Horn. According to the law, a local business is headquartered in Marathon and the preference applies to competitive sealed bids, as well as requests for proposals or qualifications.Ramsay and Councilman Chris Bull voted against moving forward with Horn, but it was mainly because neither felt comfortable without meeting either party or seeing examples of their work. I personally would like to meet with the top firms on a one-to-one basis. I would feel much more comfortable. I dont think Ive been enough a part of the process to make a decision, Ramsay said.Councilwoman Ginger Snead said she was prepared to move forward because the council often acts on selection committee recommendations without meeting potential vendors.For every project we send out for [proposals] we ask staff to send us back a recommendation. I personally dont feel like I want to start micromanaging these decisions at this point. I think its time to listen to our staff, she said.Solaria isnt give local preferenceBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPrison forman who abscondedAMichigan man who authorities say took his two young children to Key West last year without their mothers permission has been sentenced to prison. The Ludington Daily News reports that Mark McCallum was sentenced Tuesday to 28 months to 15 years in prison. McCallum gets 14 months of credit for time served. AMason County Circuit Court jury earlier convicted him of two charges of parental kidnapping, one for each of his two children, then ages 2 and 4, who he took to Key West in February 2012 after going through a divorce. The divorce agreement gave custody to his ex. When his ex-wife Sharon McCallum called authorities, she told investigators with the Mason County (Mich.) Sheriffs Department her ex-husband, 53, had stayed at the Blue Marlin Motel, 1390 Simonton St., and might return there. Thats where he was found with the kids.The Ludington Daily News says McCallum still faces charges of stealing a Chevy Tahoe, home invasion and embezzlement from a handful of clients he did winter caretaking for.He took kids in violation of agreementAssociated PressIN THE COURTSShark defendants set for court dateABroward County couple facing federal charges of illegally selling baby nurse sharks and oversized angelfish face an April 18 court date in Key West. Walter Bloecker and Lila Bloecker run Aquatic Trading Co., a Pompano Beach company that caters to saltwater aquarists. Both were arrested in February following an investigation by state and federal fishery agents into the illegal selling of live ocean fish without required permits. Ten nurse shark pups were illegally harvested by divers in the Florida Keys, says the indictment. Also alleged to have been sold to the same buyer in Michigan were seven angelfish larger than the maximum allowed size for the species. Special permits are required to harvest sharks. The Bloeckers allegedly tried to conceal the lack of permits by saying they were imported from Central America, or listing them as other species. In all, Aquarium Trading paid the fish collector $1,085 for the 17 fish that were sold to the Michigan buyer for $3,700, says the indictment signed by Assistant U.S. State Attorney Thomas WattsFitzgerald. The deals reportedly were arranged by telephone between June and early October 2012. Suppliers of the sharks and angelfish were not identified in the indictment. The Bloeckers were released after posting $50,000 bond each and surrendering their passports. The April 18 court date will determine whether the Bloeckers and their company want to go to trial four days later, April 22, as scheduled. If convicted, they could each face five years in prison. The company could be fined $500,000. In a similar but apparently unrelated case made in February, two officials of the Idaho Aquarium in Boise were arrested on federal charges of buying two lemon sharks and four spotted eagle rays for display. Eagle rays and lemon sharks are protected from harvest. The live fish sent to Idaho reportedly were illegally taken from Keys waters. The same federal prosecutor, Watts-Fitzgerald, is handling both cases at the Key West federal courthouse. No trial date has been set for Idaho defendants Ammon Covino, 39, and Christopher Conk, 40.Theyre accused of selling them against the lawIN THE COURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Please hold the line on the Little Conch Key Development Corp.s request. Our Florida Keys are finally making major strides to clean up our water by installing the sewer systems and taking new measures to educate boaters and divers about protecting our backcountry areas and reefs. Why would the county intentionally give permission for someone or some corporation to destroy our environment? We all know the devastating results of dredging seagrass; thats why we have fought to stop it before. Ten to 30 years of waiting for establishment of new grass plantings, with maybe a 40 percent chance of failure? No thank you. There has to be a better balance between a healthy economy and the stewardship responsibility to the world that God has given us. Havent we allowed enough damage to our beautiful paradise for the sake of money? We have enough cruise ships in Key West, enough cars on our roads and enough broken promises from our elected officials. Enough is enough. Please dont let us down on this one. Barbara Brooke Key Largo For years, we had a health insurance market that was broken for small businesses.Because they had less bargaining power, small businesses paid an average of 18 percent more for the same health insurance plan offered to the bigger business down the street and their premiums could skyrocket if a single employee got sick. That made it hard for many small business owners to keep offering coverage and grow their businesses.But because of the Affordable Care Act, Floridas small businesses and their employees are getting better choices, starting with new protections that limit the outrageous rate hikes many smallbusiness owners faced in the past.Take Steve Millers dilemma: The president of EPReward in Boynton Beach values his 10 employees who run his medical-waste recycling business. Though his lowest paid employee makes 2.5 times more than minimum wage and receives profit sharing, the one benefit EPReward cant afford to offer its employees is health insurance. The cost for a company policy is greater than what employees can purchase individually. Instead, Miller offers a stipend in employeespay to offset their cost to insure themselves. Miller, for one, is looking forward to taking advantage of the benefits and affordable health insurance plans provided to businesses under the Affordable Care Act, saying the new health-care law will go a long way in helping him attract and retain good employees, which he considers an important investment.Beginning in 2014, Floridas smallbusiness owners will have access to a new Health Insurance Marketplace, which opens for enrollment on Oct. 1, that will allow them to make side-byside comparisons to find a plan that fits their budget and thats right for their businesses and employees. Each Marketplace will operate a Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, focused just on small businesses, where employers will be able to choose from a range of affordable plans to offer their employees.Small businesses are also seeing savings thanks to new tax credits available to help them cover their employees. Many small businesses with 25 or fewer employees have already received a tax credit of up to 35 percent of their health insurance costs. Beginning in 2014, this tax credit will go up to 50 percent.Thats just one of the ways the law is bringing down costs for small-business owners. Insurance companies must also now publicly justify every rate increase of 10 percent or more, which has led to a sharp decline in double-digit rate hikes. Starting in 2014, insurers will have to justify every proposed rate increase, even if its a 1 percent bump.Additional rules require insurers to spend at least 80 percent of small employer premium dollars on employeesactual health benefits, instead of the insurers own administrative costs. These limits have already resulted in more than $1 billion being returned to small-business owners and other consumers.The law has also begun to slow rising costs across the system by reducing waste and fraud and promoting higherquality care that emphasizes coordination and prevention. These changes in care delivery have contributed to the slowest sustained national health spending growth in 50 years. Small businesses are the backbone of our communities. And in an economy where small businesses create twothirds of jobs, owners and employees deserve a health insurance market with fairer prices, better choices and greater certainty. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, that market is on its way. And while many small-business owners have questions about the employer responsibility provision, it is important to note that businesses with fewer than 50 employees thats 96 percent of small businesses are not required to purchase insurance. Of the remaining 4 percent of small businesses with more than 50 employees, most already provide insurance. So the number of businesses that will have to begin offering employee health insurance or pay a penalty is very small. No business owner wants to drop coverage for its employees. For many, their employees are like a family. For others, offering health insurance is critical to attracting the kind of workers they need to succeed. By making the health insurance market work better for Florida small businesses, the law is letting them focus on what they do best: Delivering great products and services, creating jobs, and growing our economy.To receive information and sign up for updates, Florida small-business owners can www.visithealthcare.gov.

Both Region 4s include Florida.Property owners face higher costs if the fire board miscalculatedIn the standoff between the board overseeing Key Largos fire and emergency services district and the fire department that protects the district, there are no winners.There are, however, big losers the residents and business owners covered by the district who could very well see part of their fire protection gone, and possibly higher costs for fire protection.On March 25, the elected Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District board voted 3-2 to sever, without cause, its contract with the Key Largo Fire-Rescue Department Inc., a nonprofit corporation. The sides are in the middle of a 60-day mediation period that could result in the fire department disbanding.The district board, created in 2005 by the state Legislature, has no direct control over the Fire-Rescue Department. Rather, its main charge is setting the districts tax rate and collecting taxes to support operations.Commissioners who voted to cut ties Bob Thomas, Marilyn Beyer and George Mirabella didnt give specific reasons, but clearly are unhappy with Chief Sergio Garcia, who doesnt report to them but rather to firefighters who have continually re-elected him chief since 1999.Thomas, Beyer and Mirabella want the chief, whoever it is, to be hired by the Fire-Rescue Department board, which would be appointed by the district commissioners. Currently the Fire-Rescue Department board is elected by department membership.While the shouting back and forth continues, the people at risk are the customers who pay the fire tax in exchange for having their homes protected. The department is manned mostly by volunteers (three dozen volunteers and seven paid firefighters), resulting in Key Largo property owners paying far less for fire protection than other Keys residents. If mediation doesnt work, that could change. If the department disbands, Islamorada and Tavernier firefighters are ready to step in with fire protection, but you better believe it wouldnt be without additional costs. Then theres insurance: The Insurance Services Office gives the Key Largo department high marks, and thats reflected in lower fire insurance rates. Disband the department and the next rating could go way down, meaning premiums go way up. While we dont believe that firefighters choosing their boss is the best way to hire leadership, we also believe the arrangement between the department and the district board has worked well the past seven years. The contract between the Fire-Rescue Department and the district fire board expires in 2014. The two sides should let the contract play itself out and then as the deal gets close to renewal, negotiate what each side wants. Thats how this process should work.GUEST COLUMNSmall business wins with health-care reform BUTTS ROSHELLIf the department disbands,it will mean additional costs. Staff ideas go to boardThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Districts three-year strategic plan is getting an update Monday. Director Michael Doyle said he plans to present roughly 24 ideas, gathered at a staff-driven sustainability summit last month, to the district board. Doyle said he tasked eight different groups of staff members, ranging from four to 10 members, to work on various initiatives. There were hundreds of ideas and theyve been whittled down to around 24 projects. Each [group] was asked to do three projects, he said.The projects include green building, energy conservation and innovative product ideas. That includes possibly using electric vehicles in Key West and tinting windows at the districts Marathon office to save electricity, among other possibilities. Im going to put them in the three-year plan. There are some things I had in there that have not been acted on yet, so Ill replace them with some of these projects that have similar goals like energy conservation, or saving money in the field, Doyle said.Doyle took over for former Director Ed Fussell in July 2011, and putting together the strategic plan was one of his first charges. It covers a wide variety of topics, from public outreach to transportation costs, but its main focus is cutting costs to reduce district spending. Asummit workshop is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday at the district office on College Road in Key West. Aregular board meeting is set to follow. Agenda items include:Discussing the possibility of allowing Islamorada Fire Rescue to use a Mosquito Control land parcel for parking and training. Its at mile marker 81.6. The lot is actually owned by the Monroe County School District, which allows Mosquito Control to use it, so ultimate approval would have to come from the School District. Doyle said the lot, largely unused today, was used in the past to store large chemical tanks for spray trucks.You would treat sometimes gallons per minute, so you had big tanks on the trucks and theyd run out quickly. We had refill stations up and down the Keys, he said.Commissioner Steve Smith plans to gauge the boards interest in starting monthly meetings earlier than 5:30 p.m. He would like meetings to begin around 3 p.m.Conservation among the top initiativesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLHarbor language gellingBoth opponents and proponents of widening the main Key West Harbor channel to make room for larger cruise ships have agreed on proposed language for a binding referendum asking if the city should request a federal study on such widening. That comes after a series of meetings between environmental advocacy group Last Stand the Key West Chamber of Commerce, the most vocally divided groups involved in the dredging debate. The language was brokered by City Commissioner Tony Yaniz.The question that will be put to voters in the Oct. 1 city election: Shall the city of Key West request that the Army Corp of Engineers conduct a comprehensive feasibility study, at no monetary cost to the city, to determine the environmental, economic and social impacts of widening the Key West Main Ship Channel for use by modern and longer cruise ships while also addressing navigational safety?City Attorney Shawn Smith reported to commissioners in an April 8 e-mail that an agreement was reached on key points. That agreement was subsequently refined through discussions that [Yaniz] had with both parties. The result is a ballot question that both sides support.Friday, Yaniz stressed the importance of finding common ground in the runup to what could be a divisive referendum.I wanted to minimize the divisiveness, he said. We are willing to recognize in the long run its all about unity.He suggested a series of town hall-style meetings allowing both sides to present information to voters, noting, One of the big things is getting out good information. Yaniz has advocated for a change in marketing tactics designed to attract smaller, boutique-style cruise ships with passengers who would likely spend more money shoreside than passengers on larger ships.The pitch is to widen a 1mile stretch of the Southernmost Citys shipping channel, Cut B, from 300 feet to 450 feet to accommodate larger cruise ships. The work is projected to displace some 150,000 cubic yards of protected sea floor.Actual dredging is expected to cost more than $30 million. The study is expected to cost around $2 million.Chamber research indicates the citys approximately 800,000 annual cruise ship visitors generate $87 million in local revenue.Referendum scheduled for fall electionBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST

When the company was bought out and the plant was closed in 2009, he decided to switch careers. Fedorchak became a registered nurse.I always wanted to go into the medical field, he said. The plant closing was a blessing in disguise. He qualified for education assistance under the federal Trade Adjustment Assistance that helps trade-affected workers who have lost their jobs as a result of increased imports or shifts in production out of the United States. He was one of eight men in his nursing class. Fedorchak, 40, is now employed by Conemaugh Memorial Hospital in Johnstown and specializes in respiratory patient nursing care. They could have put me anywhere and Id have been fine with it, he said. Male nurses are becoming increasingly more commonplace.According to a study by the U.S. Census Bureau, in 1970 only 2.7 percent of nurses were male, compared to 9.6 percent today. The male proportion of licensed practical nurses has also increased from 3.9 percent to 8.1 percent in the same time period.The majority of registered nurses, 64 percent, work in hospitals. An equal number of licensed practical nurses work in nursing care facilities or hospitals at 30 percent each. Zeke Fyock, 20, is a senior at Conemaughs nursing school. He is one of about 20 men in a class of 50. He worked several years as a nurses aide before starting nursing school and continues to work as an aide. The demand for nurses is extraordinary right now, he said. Alot in my family are in health care, including my uncle and my mother, who are nurses. He was always interested in nursing and shadowed his uncle while in high school. That led to some static from some of his friends, but he has learned that many of those who made fun of him are not doing anything now. I think that was jealousy because I always had a focus and a career goal, Fyock said. When you can give care and compassion to people, you brighten their day. This is a great career. Cathy Lilly, site administrator for Somerset County (Pa.) CareerLink, said while employers cant specify male or female prospective employees when they contact CareerLink, she thinks male nurses are in demand.Some employers look for nontraditional type employees because a person who goes into a nontraditional career is showing dedication, she said.There is quite a demand for employees in the health care field, and not just nurses, Lilly said. Certified nurse assistants and people trained in medical technology are also needed. She knows of several people who had been furloughed from other jobs who have decided to go into the medical field. These are careers with a future, she said. The majority of people, men and women, who go into nursing are truly dedicated. Nursing is a calling. Male nurses have an advantage over female nurses from the standpoint of having more upper body strength, but lifting patients is more of skill in knowing how to do it than of having upper body strength, Fedorchak said. Older women theres maybe one or two who didnt want me around them because of modesty, he said. I always tell them if they have a problem because Im male let me know and Ill get a female nurse. If they dont feel comfortable I dont take it personally. He would recommend that other men consider nursing as a profession. If you have an outgoing personality, if you are compassionate and want to help others, this career is for you, he said. I really enjoy it. I have the opportunity to be around people and to help them. I love it. No matter what you do in life, do it because you love it, not because of money.Some change career track in mid-lifeBy VICKI ROCKDaily AmericanTHE WORKPLACE The number of male nurses, working in hospitals, nursing centers and elsewhere, has jumped since 1970.

In split board vote, Drake is inWhile Superintendent Mark Porters controversial selections for interim administrators were approved Tuesday, the majority of the Monroe County School Board has made clear its dissatisfaction in the school chiefs decision-making.Porter last week tapped James Drake, former Manatee County School District assistant superintendent of business services blamed for creating a $3.4 million budget deficit, to replace Ken Gentile as finance director.Drakes contract approval passed 3-2 with board members Ed Davidson and Andy Griffiths dissenting; Griffiths unexpected vote created audible shock.Good God! an exasperated board member Ron Martin exclaimed while a laughing John Dick asked rhetorically, Is that a political vote or what?Wednesday, Griffiths said he went to the meeting thinking he would vote for Drake but was swayed by Davidsons criticism of the choice.As the discussion played out, board member Robin Smith-Martin expressed a willingness to find an alternative to Drake, including retaining Gentile, whos controversial in his own right. Davidson speculated: Drake was definitely up for grabs and if Andy had telegraphed he was going to vote that way, Robin wouldve gone with him.Smith-Martin wouldnt respond to specific questions about whether he wouldve voted differently but acknowledged, There was an opportunity to call an audible. Captain Ed and I recognized the opportunity but didnt have another vote.I think the vote was enough, and I did not feel the need to advocate for my position, Griffiths said when asked why he didnt share his position with his colleagues. In response to Dicks suggestion that he was politically motivated, Griffiths said, Like hes never done it. I would call it being influenced by Davidson. Griffiths said his vote against Drake absolutely represents waning confidence in Porter, who he said should be on notice. Davidson called the hire a miscarriage. I am grossly disappointed in Porter.Dick stuck to his commitment to respect Porters ability to make personnel decisions given his position as the districts first-ever hired, rather than elected, superintendent, but not without stern words.We gave you the authority to make these selections, Dick told Porter. I wont do it again, Ill tell you that much. Politically, I probably should vote no ... but Im not going to. I dont think you did the right thing with this. Asked how he came to hiring Drake, Porter said, I received both personal and professional recommendations as to his qualifications and abilities. And Wednesday, he responded to the board vote in an e-mail to The Reporter. I am of course concerned about the process and outcome of [the Tuesday] School Board meeting. The burden is on myself and Mr. Drake to prove that his selection is in the best interests of the School District and I have confidence in his and my abilities to do so. Trust is a commodity to be earned, it is not an entitlement, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue to earn the trust of the School Board and the communities they represent. Drakes contract runs from April 15 to Aug. 31 and is worth $47,040, or $480 per day.In a 4-1 vote with Davidson dissenting, the board approved Porters selection of former Key West High School Principal John Welsh to serve as interim director of human resources. Welsh started last Friday and will serve until July 31. He will be paid $30,400, or $400 per day.Davidson called Welsh unqualified at best, while Dick noted that his salary as an interim HR director exceeds the hourly rate paid to former Director Cheryl Allen. Her hourly salary, not including benefits, comes out at $363 per day, Dick said.In a surprise, Griffiths votes against pickBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,April 13,2013* ~Gourmet Sa Br: Freshly made dressings, artisan breads, imported cheeses and specialties like hearts of palm, portabella mushrooms, sushi and soups.Ba Lena Dbnint Extravaganza: 16 cuts of perfectly seasoned cuts of meat carved at your table, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Lamb & Shrimp plus the gourmet salad bar.

Provide a written statement to the committee explaining why full corrective action has not been taken or, if the governing body intends to take full corrective action, [describe] the corrective action to be taken and when it will occur, wrote committee Chairman Sen. Joseph Abruzzo (D-Wellington) and Vice Chairman Rep. Lake Ray (R-Jacksonville).In a worst-case scenario, School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths could be compelled to appear before the joint committee to testify. With half the districts in the state receiving this letter, Griffiths said, I dont expect to be summoned to Tallahassee to testify. If I end up taking an unscheduled trip to Tallahassee, my displeasure could not be expressed. Board member John Dick agreed that the seemingly widespread problem serves to dilute the impact but said, Its still a big deal.Tuesday, the board voted 32 to hire Jim Drake, former assistant superintendent of business services in Manatee County, to replace Ken Gentile as finance director beginning this coming Thursday.Drake will be charged with preparing the boards response to the joint committee. Dick pointed out the new administrator has 22 years of experience working with the Florida Auditor Generals Office on school district audits.The Auditor Generals Office highlighted nine negative findings in the financial and operational audits of the Monroe School District in fiscal years 2010, 2011 and 2012. Included in the set of repeat findings:Improvements were needed in controls over food service collections as the district struggled with recording cash payments for school meals.Controls over Adult Education Department cash collections need to be improved. Former district administrator Monique Acevedo is serving an eightyear prison sentence for stealing more than $400,000 from Adult Ed and the district and program is just now being righted.Improvements could be made in control procedures over gasoline and diesel fuel inventories refers to a longheld problem of employees not properly logging mileage and fuel consumption.Panel orders explanation for auditsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBoard OKs change ordersAs a closed-door committee continues to analyze change orders associated with the $39 million reconstruction of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West, the Monroe County School Board is slowing ratifying amendments to the original contract with Coastal Construction.Board member Ed Davidson has doggedly questioned changes to the contract, originally estimated at $36 million, prompting board Chairman Andy Griffiths to convene a committee to hash out the issues.That ad-hoc group includes Davidson, district Audit and Finance Committee member Stuart Kessler, district attorney Dirk Smits, construction manager Bill Sprague, architect Rick Smith and representatives from the builder.There are 81 change orders and this week the board approved eight. Davidsons main driver is a contractual agreement that splits any savings on the project, with 60 percent going to the district and 40 percent going to Coastal; he wants to ensure that savings are based on a decrease in cost rather than scope. The project went through a major redesign to lower the roof pitch to comply with the citys 25-foot height ordinance. That was after the schools gym building was put up at 56 feet. All agreed that despite a first productive session, theres a lot more review to be done in the run-up to the expected June completion of the project. Kessler, in a Tuesday update for board members meeting at Marathon High School, said the goal is to continue to go back and recreate many change orders to ensure theres no double billing. We only looked at a small percentage of things. We found many discrepancies in a small sampling size. Davidson said he didnt want to convey an overly rosy description. If they underestimate the cost and it costs more, we get billed for 100 percent of it, he said But if they overestimate and save money, we only get 60 percent. Thats why we have to look at those savings credits and ensure theyre legitimate.However,HOB project still problematicBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS POST OFFICE LOCKED DOWN Photo courtesy ALYSON CREANThe Key West post office on Whitehead Street was locked down around 1:30 p.m.Friday when someone found a threatening letterthere with a white substance inside the envelope.The citys hazardous materials team responded and those inside 15 to 25 people were put through a decontamination process.What the substance was wasnt known as of press time.Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own photos at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

The Dolphins allowed 20 runs, scored only two, collected just nine hits and made a combined 17 errors in the two games. Coral Springs beat Marathon, 15-1, on Tuesday, while South Dade won 5-1 a day later. Coach Bob Roney said a long layoff after the teams Spring Break trip to Orlando left the Dolphins rusty. We didnt play for two and a half weeks and that hurt us, he said. Roney called Coral Springs one of the better teams in Broward County, full of young slap hitters that gave the Dolphins trouble. They hit the ball; theyre a good hitting team. They would punch the ball right over the third basemans head, he said. Marathon held the lead for a brief time after scoring its lone run of the game in the top of the first inning. Taylor Konrath singled, advanced to second on a Sacha Olivera walk and scored on a base hit by Ashlyn Katz.But Coral Springs scored three runs in the bottom of the first, two in the second and five each in the third and fourth innings to pull away.

Paone scored the winning run.The Conchs had tied the game at 4-4 in the sixth on a single by pinch-hitter Anthony Henriquez. We fell a little short which seems to be the theme lately, said coach Miguel Menendez. Key West fell to 11-9, Benjamin improved to 16-5.The Conchs, who were coming off a 10-inning loss to St. Brendan, had gone six games without an extra-base hit until Freeman hit a long drive in the first that scored Andy Perez and Darren Miller, both of whom had walked.It wasnt a good day for sophomore left-hander Brandon Presley, who lasted only one and a third innings. He walked four, made two wild pitches and gave up two runs.From there, the Key West pitching got better. Hunter Sellers came on in the second and pitched through the fifth. He retired seven batters in a row before giving up four consecutive hits in the fifth when Benjamin took a 4-3 lead.Jay Feathers was brought in to pitch in the sixth but was yanked after giving up two quick singles. Freeman moved from third base to the mound and retired the next three batters to keep the game at 4-4. He then pitched a scoreless seventh. Chris Garcia led off the top of the eighth for the Conchs with a single and stole second base. But when he tried to advance to third on a fly-out by Chris Varela, he was thrown out by the center fielder for a double play that ended the inning. Menendez gave Feathers another chance on the mound in the bottom of the eighth. He retired the first batter but then issued a walk before giving up the gamewinning hit that sent the Conchs to their bus for a 240-mile trip home.Key West will play Trinity Christian at 8 tonight at Rex Weech Field and end the regular season at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Keys Gate.Benjamin hands team another lossBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL Cane netters done at tournamentAfter the best girls tennis regular season ever at Coral Shores High, Lady Hurricanes reached the semifinals in five of seven brackets at the District 16-2ATournament.Thats where the season ended, as the squad ran into tough competition in the April 2 tournament in Miami.We had a tough draw, head coach Blake Fry said. It was uphill from the start. We played every match close and were a bit flat, perhaps, from coming off spring break.We did not do as well as we had hoped, he said, but we learned from our errors, which sets the bar for next season. This is a young and aggressive group of girls. They were not satisfied with the end result. Coral Shores, unbeaten in regular-season team play before the tournament, wanted to make the regional tournament as a squad but the districts top two spots went to Gulliver Prep and Doral Academy. Coral Shoresgirls took third. All of the Lady Cane netters are eligible to return next season. No. 1 Erica Williams scored a win against a Terra Institute foe but was stopped by Doral Academy in the semifinals.Juliana Pena at No. 3 topped Key West in her opener, then suffered her first defeat of the season against Doral in the bracket semifinal.Maria Lozada at No. 5 won to move into the semifinals, where she ended against a Terra foe. Ellie Leopold at No. 2 lost in a long first-round match, and No. 4 Rachel Walters suffered her first loss this spring in falling to Lasalle in an early round.Both doubles teams, No. 1 Williams and Pena and No. 2 Leopold and Walters, reached the semifinals before falling.This group knows their potential, and theyre hungry and capable, Fry said. Next season cant get here fast enough. Coral Shoresboys gained experience through the season but wrapped their season in the early rounds of the district tournament. They played extremely well with tough draws. Each played his best tennis of the season against solid tournament-tough opponents, Fry said. I was very proud of their efforts all season.

Florida Keys, a program sponsored by Green Living and Energy Education (GLEE). We are a small group with lots of support judging from the number of businesses and individuals that have given money, bags, in-kind services, time and personal pledges to reduce their use of plastic bags in the Florida Keys and help prevent marine debris and litter.The program initially focuses on Big Pine Key and last fall, local businesses were asked to reduce plastic bags in their stores. Each business that signed the pledge to do its best to reduce plastic bags has a mention on the GLEE website. That list of businesses has grown to more than 60 and can be seen at www.keysglee.com/gyb Businesses that sponsored our campaign have links to their websites. In November, we launched the residents campaign at the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce Arts Festival. It was a big success for a little program and that day, we gathered almost 300 pledges from individuals to reduce their plastic-bag use. For that pledge, they received a complimentary reusable bag to get them started or keep them going on that path.Founding sponsors SaveA-Turtle, Last Stand, Waste Management, AKey Real Estate, TheRecycleBag.com and Monroe County Solid Waste and Recycling donated bags, time and money. Subsequent campaign sponsors First State Bank, The Nature Conservancy, Centennial Bank, the News Barometer, Deer Run B&B and Friends and Volunteers of Refuges offered additional bags, in-kind help and cash donations to keep the program going as we continued our outreach at four more events throughout the high visitor season on Big Pine Key.The first storefront presence opened in February at the First State Bank Big Pine Key branch. They generously offered space for a pledge station, where residents and visitors can go to sign their pledge and receive a complimentary reusable bag. This location allows the outreach to continue whenever the group is not setting up a booth at an outdoor event.Anyone driving north of the Big Pine Key stoplight cannot miss the 8-square-foot Got Your Bags? sign installed by National Key Deer Refuge volunteers at mile marker 30.5. Its a stunning visual reminder to those coming into and leaving Big Pine Key.We have been encouraged to see supporters follow us on our Facebook page. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and we were very flattered to have interest from groups in Cincinnati, Orlando, Key West and Islamorada that want to implement similar campaigns. To help others, we have a tool kit that can be downloaded from our website. No need to reinvent the wheel. The groups final outreach booth of the season is on April 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Earth Day festival at Bahia Honda State Park, mile marker 36.8. Come by, say hello, pledge your support to reduce your plastic-bag use, marine debris and litter and receive a complimentary reusable shopping bag. Earth Day is April 22 and serves as a good reminder of what we can do to be good stewards of our surroundings and environment every day.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,April 13,2013 Conch Republic Days 31st anniversaryThe Conch Republic Military Forces gather for the annual big showdown with the bully feds in what has become a much-celebrated, much-imitated 10day birthday party dedicated to non-conformity. This year marks the 31st anniversary of the Conch Republics secession from the union in a territorial dispute now much celebrated. This honors the history of the Conch Republic, which grew out of a 1982 incident when the U.S. Border Patrol set up druginterdiction roadblocks in Florida City, stopping all traffic exiting the Keys. That enraged Keys officials, especially tourism industry boosters who took unkindly to the heavy hands of the feds. Dennis Wardlow, who was Key West mayor at the time, led a contingent of civic and business leaders to the steps of the federal courthouse in downtown Miami. The protesters seceded from the U.S., declared war, then sued for war reparations and passport recognition. All in jest, of course. And every year since then, the Keys has found an excuse to celebrate Conch independence, despite the fact that war reparations never came. And the mayhem is always mixed with mirth, witness the official motto of the Conch Republics Military Forces: AFarce To Be Reckoned With. Indeed. Peter Anderson, who imbues the event with his own, over-size personality, describes the revelry, as The Conch Republics own 4th of July, Bastille Day & Cinco de Mayo all rolled into one. We couldnt have put it any better. Activities scheduled during the April 19-April 28 fest range from a mock sea battle (where the only casualties are to egos and bragging rights), drag races and a Wreckers race out to the reef. The always popular bed races, fiddlincontests and drinking bouts are also on tap, along with the Worlds Longest Parade, Thursday, April 25, hosted by U.S. 1 Radio and their sister station Conch Country. Among highlights of this years 10-day event: Naval battle, parade, bed races on tap Big hair,high heels and hijinks are part of the fun during the Conch Republic Drag Race,which will be held Saturday,April 20.LAttitudes Staff Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNE Y In previous years,the Conch Republic Naval Battle engaged the U.S.Coast Guard in a water cannon standoff.This year,because of the sequester cuts,the Coast Guard vessel wont be participating.See Celebration,7B Conchs, Cajuns and music take Key West stageAWhos Who of Key West musical talent takes the stage at the Red Barn Theatre for Conchs, Cowboys & Tales of Old Key West April 16-20.

Cotton, who played with the rock band Poco, performs his tribute to New Orleans The Heart of the Night as well as Pocos cover of J.J. Cales Cajun Moon. Cotton linked up with Wells and Murtha in a chance encounter at the Baltimore Civic Center in 1975-76. The John Wells Delegation, in which Wells performed with Murtha as the singer/bassist, opened for Poco back then. They didnt play together at the Baltimore venue, but they are together again on the Red Barn Stage for the reprise of last years popular Conchs, Cowboys and Tales of Old Key West.

As the worlds first fifth world nation, a sovereign state of mind seeking only to bring more humor, warmth, and respect to a world in sore need of all three, the Conch Republic remains the country who seceded where others failed.

Jay Miller, who runs the Outer Limits was frustrated with the recent trolling bite off Key West. This time of year, there is no consistency when trolling out in the blue water. Nothing is the same from day to day. I trolled almost 30 miles without a knockdown 30 miles! Whens the bite going to get better offshore? he asked. But he already knew the answer. The bite will get better when the fish are there. But what do you do if the fish just arent there to catch while trolling out in the deep blue water? Drop deep. The best way to maximize your day south of the reef is to learn how to catch bottom fish in very deep water. There are countless underwater structures dotting the bottom from Key Largo all the way past Key West out to the Dry Tortugas, from the edge of the reef out past the wall. What about equipment? Do you need to invest in deep-drop equipment? You may look at that option after the 400-foot depth range but anything shallower is possible to hand crank on a conventional or spinning reel. Some of the structures we fished have saved the offshore day by producing bites and bent rods. First you must concentrate on finding the structures. You can easily find the numbers (locations) for artificial wrecks and reefs that were deployed for public use in Monroe County, wrecks such as the Wilkes Barre, Duane, Bibb and Saufley. Making a grid search around the given waypoint will reveal the piece fairly quickly. Then mark the actual structure on your bottom recorder to hone in on the waypoint. Now you can figure out the drift. The first drop should start from right on top of the structure to see which way the drift is taking your vessel. Let it ride for a while to make a good track that you can follow each time back for another drift. Now is when youll look like a hero. Rig a simple double dropper rig (chicken rig) with two 5/0 circle hooks and an 8ounce sinker at the bottom baited with squid, bonito, kingfish, Spanish mackerel, etc. It really doesnt matter what cut bait you use. These deep-water fish arent the brightest and they always seem hungry. Now that you are baited and you know your drift, move back up your track line past the wreck and start your drift. Drop your rig to the bottom. Agood trick is to hold your reel high over your head and point the rod at the water. The speed with which the rig makes it to the bottom is greatly increased, because of less friction on the line caused by the spool and the rod.Eventually you will reach the bottom and may feel some very faint taps or, more noticeably, the doubling of the rod, which will signal one of the larger creatures has eaten your bait. Snowy grouper, blueline tilefish, yellowedge grouper, yelloweye snapper, vermillion snapper, American red snapper, almacos and amberjacks are all species you will find on these pieces of structure. You can also use live baits for the bigger fish, but for the snappers, stay with the chicken rig. As you spend time perfecting the deep drop and then saving the day with this deepwater option, youll find the blue days in the blue water will become much more successful days on the water.
