Prosecutors from the Monroe County State Attorneys Office are working with doctors to mentally evaluate LeBaron before the penalty phase starts. A6-6 vote of the jury discounts the death penalty from Circuit Court Judge Mark Jonesconsideration of a sentence, while a vote of seven or more in favor would represent a recommendation that LeBaron be sentenced to lethal injection. Both sides are due back in Courtroom B at the Freeman Justice Center beginning at 2 p.m. Tuesday. LeBarons former girlfriend, Kristen Whitmore, the states star eyewitness, told police she met Gardner through her work as a prostitute and schemed with LeBaron to rob Gardner. The day of the murder, jurors decided, LeBaron lay in wait in the cabin of Gardners boat at the Oceanside Marina as Whitmore led the unsuspecting 57-year-old to his death. LeBaron took the stand on Tuesday and blamed the slaying on Whitmore, telling the jury he was in Homestead when Whitmore killed the 6-foot, 1-inch, 270-pound Gardner.In exchange for her cooperation, Whitmore pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is serving 18 years at the Lowell Correctional Institute.Lead prosecutor Chief Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Manny Madruga painted a disturbing picture of LeBaron andConvicted of first-degree murder, LeBaron now looking at Death RowBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS FKAAbill dies due to inactionDespite unanimous approval by the state House, a local bill aimed at establishing an elected Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board of directors was never taken up by the Senate.House Bill 1321, sponsored by Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo), was approved 114-0 on April 26 and referred to the Senate Rules Committee that same day, but it never made it onto an agenda and will not become law since the 2013 legislative session was scheduled to end Friday.I did what I could on my end, Raschein said. It had two committees and passed with flying colors last week. Appointments are made by the governor, meaning Gov. Rick Scott would have had to approve the bill knowing it would diminish his authority in that regard. Raschein pledged to file the bill after Keys voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum in November calling for an elected board. The vote was 24,366 for and 10,771 opposed. Sen. Dwight Bullard, whose District 39 includes Monroe County, sponsored the companion Senate Bill 1774. No vote was held in that chamber. Sen. Bullard fought hard for it. Hell continue to fight for it, Bullard legislative assistant Tyrell Hall said.Monroe County Mayor George Neugent, a chief proponent of the change in how the board is comprised, said hes disappointed the bill didnt pass the Senate given the referendum results and the Aqueduct Authority taking on responsibilities as a sewer utility for many Keys residents.Ill be talking to Dwight about this and when 70 percent of the residents want to have an elected board, hes going to have to have some kind of justification for not pushing this, he said. But, Neugent added: Weve got bigger fish to fry.House OKd elected board, Senates idleBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTATE LEGISLATURE$16,000 in fishing gear reported stolenFishing is big business in the Keys among not only anglers but thieves. Increasingly, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says, expensive gear and tackle are being stolen from throughout the county, and the Sheriffs Office is looking for help finding the culprits. The latest hit was Tuesday, when $16,000 worth of rods and reels including Penns were stolen from a house on 97th Street in Marathon. Also stolen during that break-in was a 50inch flat-screen television. Deputy Garrett Test found a window unlocked that might have been the point of entry. There have been a number of break-ins in various areas of the county with fishing equipment stolen, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Fishing equipment has also been reported stolen from docks, fishing boats and storage sheds. On April 23, Murray Marine on Stock Island reported that someone entered the main building and had cut padlocks off storage lockers used by boat captains to store their belongings. Alarge amount of equipment was stolen from those lockers, including many high-end rods and reels, Herrin sad.

Neighbors on Garden State Lane wondered how the roof, all that remains above a pile of blackened remains, stayed aloft. They also await word on what ignited the fire that started in the elevated home, a mobile home or modular converted into a wood-frame structure over the years, and spread to the doublewide mobile home next door.Right now there is so much destruction and burned area that investigators cannot say what the cause is yet, Monroe County Fire Chief Jim Callahan said Friday.State Fire Marshals Office investigators suspect the fire started in a second-floor bedroom. Additional tests are being done, Callahan said.Both the destroyed homes, on a bayside canal off mile marker 103, were unoccupied when the fire erupted around 1:45 p.m. Sunday.The elevated home at 716 Garden State Lane reportedly was sold for $355,000 on Feb. 28 to Maria A.

blewide at 714 Garden State Lane was vacant after the recent death of its owner, William Billy Marine.Jackie Velaquez, a weekend resident from Miami, returned Thursday from a trip to Pensacola to inspect the damage to her home at 712 Garden State Lane, adjacent to the leveled doublewide.Plastic siding on portions of her mobile home buckled and melted but the structure seemed to remain intact. Some appliances may have been damaged by saltwater drawn from a canal that doused the flames, she said. My neighbors were here spraying my house with garden hoses, Velaquez said. They saved it. Two other Garden State Lane suffered damage. I live four doors down and you could feel the heat at my place, said Frank Moreno, who helped hose down the Velaquez home. There were times we had to move back because the heat was so bad. Strong westerly winds made the fire difficult to control but likely saved the Velaquez home, Moreno said. The fires burned for more than an hour, he said. Flames reached the Marine doublewide twice but seemed to be extinguished, but a water shortage apparently doomed the structure. Water supply was definitely a challenge, Chief Sergio Garcia of the Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Department said. Water carried aboard tanker trucks quickly was used, and there were problems connecting to a fire hydrant more than a halfmile away, reports indicate.Water supply a challengeFrom Fire,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,May 4,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.8775 SUN.8373 MON.8474 TUES.8575 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers.

Our brother left us way too soon. This is something he wrote many years ago after losing our Mom. We know hes singing it for her now. MOMMYS SONG "Seven young children, She kept them in place, A beautiful woman, A lady with grace. Up in a family where no one was first, But no one was last for the change in the purse. The winters were cold, But the summers were warm, But she kept us together; Her face was now worn. Time going by and I asked about this, She held me and squeezed me, This came to her lips: "Son cant you see, Son you are me, but youre not the little boy you used to be." As we got older, We left one by one with him being there, It just wasnt much fun. Back to the city and out on my own I had many places, but they werent home. We talked awhile and I asked her about this, She held me and squeezed me, This came to her lips: "Son cant you see, Son you are me, But now be your own man, Be what you want to be". I went away and It was quite awhile Since I spoke to the woman, too busy to dial. Sister calls crying, its late Thursday night, Were all going home, She can make it all right. Saw her there lying Its green and its bright, The smell of the flowers, The cold of the night. Then I looked around me, at what she had done, the four of her daughters, and we, her three sons. A happy thought came to me, I knew she was free, "look what I did with my life, and be proud of me". Hey cant you see, Mom, its still me. But I wont be the same man I used to be. Mom, cant you see, Mom, its still me, But I wont be the same man I used to be." We love you and miss you & will watch over your bride. The Walsh Family price, should be a clue that there is something wrong. If someone tries to sell you any type of property, make sure you call the Sheriffs Office before purchasing it. If the person selling it to you is above board, they should have no problem having a law enforcement officer check it first to make sure it is not stolen. If [the seller doesnt] agree, do not purchase the property. If you do, and you suspect it might be stolen, you could face charges, Herrin said.

They shared two things, he said in closing arguments Wednesday. They had a love for crystal meth and they had the ability to show callous indifference to the suffering of others for profit. Their actions have brought us all here today to this courtroom. We bore witness to the brutality of their handiwork. It was not a pleasant thing for us to experience. Throughout the presentation of their case, Madruga and co-counsel Val Winter showed jurors gruesome photos of Gardners badly beaten body. During the attack, Gardner was stabbed nine times, lost seven teeth and had his lower and upper jaw broken. He projected for jurors a picture of a smiling Gardner, followed by a shot of bloody teeth littering the boat cabin. When the day started, those teeth were a part of Mr. Gardners mouth. They had nothing. They were on the run, going nowhere, and the solution was pure evil. Defense attorney Jack Blumenfeld attempted to impeach Whitmores credibility. The case against Jonathan LeBaron depends solely on your believing Kristen Whitmore and your trusting her, he said. And who is she? Aprofessional liar. Shes a prostitute ... not any type of prostitute. As she told you, she offered a girlfriend experience. Its a con. Its making men believe she cares for them. Shes a manipulator. LeBaron and Whitmore were caught in Midvale, Utah, 12 days after Gardners death.Death sentence is possibleFrom LeBaron,1A Keynote photo by SEAN KINNEYJonathan LeBaron reacts following Wednesdays verdict.Zip-li n e hea r i n g take s place Mo n dayIts a safe bet to say Crane Point Hammock and Nature Center officials took extra care when posting notices for a Monday public hearing to consider a passive recreation conditional-use permit and height variance for the Marathon nonprofits proposed $1.1 million zip-line course.On April 15, the citys advisory Planning Commission was at least an hour into the same material it will hear again Monday when 52nd Street resident George Chartrand had the meeting halted and voided.Crane Point was required by law to post signs in advance of the hearing but posted 11-inch-by-17-inch signs instead of the required 4-square-foot signs.What happened that day is we killed the meeting. [Chartrand] is being very insistent about what the code says, and hes right. The meeting never happened and well do it all over again, Planning Director George Garrett said.Chartrand brought the issue up during the meeting, but not before three presenters and several members of the public had spoken. Garrett has said the sign size requirement is part of city code and that the law required ending the hearing. Garrett said Crane Point left nothing to chance this time around, apparently posting roughly 15 correctly sized signs around the perimeter of the property.Around 50 people attended the April 15 commission meeting; the zip-line has been controversial with staunch advocates and opponents.Crane Point wants a variance to the citys 37-foot height limit that would allow zip-line towers to be up to 46.25 feet tall. Garrett said notices for the hearing, at 5:30 p.m. at the firehouse at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, were sent to every property owner within 300 feet of the 63-acre hammock property. Garrett has said the state Department of Economic Opportunity approved the passive recreation use last June as part of the citys application for a Community Block Development Grant for Crane Point. Opponents to the project say it would be an active recreational use not intended on the property.The City Council agreed to pursue the $727,000 grant on behalf of Crane Point. Its based on the attraction creating 21 full-time jobs for a year.The city would have to pay $35,000 back to the state for each job not created. Crane Point has said it would cover the first four jobs if necessary.Crane Point is seeking a height varianceBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSpeared snook lead to arrestABroward County man spearfishing in Islamorada waded to shore with a big fish just before 1 p.m. Wednesday.The fish turned out to be a snook, one of six snook that Felix N. Acosta Ramirez, 32, of Miramar speared near Annes Beach, reported Deputy Wilfredo Guerra, a marine officer with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Acosta was arrested and charged with multiple conservation violations for killing six snook, a species protected from spearing in Florida for decades.Acosta stated that he did not know that those fish ... were not allowed to be speared, Guerra said in his report. Not only were the snook speared, the unlicensed spearfishman shot the fish during the closed season, exceeded the daily bag limit on snook by five fish and killed three undersized snook, the deputy charged. Harvesting snook in Florida Keys waters has been banned since January 2010 when a severe winter freeze killed untold numbers of the hard-fighting game fish that is highly vulnerable to weather extremes. Guerra said he checked Acosta after seeing him diving without a flag off Annes Beach, a popular swimming area on Lower Matecumbe Key. Acosta additionally was charged with spearfishing in state waters of the Upper Keys not allowed and within 100 yards of a designated swim area. Acosta had also speared a parrotfish and four spadefish, the deputy noted.CRIME FRONTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org ACOSTA
The former Overseas Liquor & Lounge property near mile marker 49 is one of eight properties set to go before the city of Marathons Code Compliance Board Wednesday for failing to connect to central sewers. Probate attorney Richard Warner represents the estate of Joseph Ardolino, which owns the property, and has long claimed the citys action is unfairly targeting the property. But that doesnt appear to be the case. He made an extensive public records request on Feb. 14 asking for city communications regarding the Ardolino estate.Warner claims the estate has no money to connect to the sewer system because the city stopped it from reopening a bar and package store there. It was last open in 2008.The city has maintained that any property owner in the city that doesnt hook up to the sewer system receives a letter from the citys Utilities Department giving them 365 days notice. That window expired March 31, meaning the estate had 15 days to apply for a permit before being placed on Wednesdays Code Board agenda. The $85 permit, good for 365 days, is for a lateral connection to the sewer system.Just days after Key Largo firefighters voted on concessions aimed at saving their department, a new nonprofit company formed prepared to take over fire-rescue services.The new company the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department will replace the Key Largo Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department effective May 27 unless the board of commissioners that controls the budgets for Key Largos fire and ambulance services agrees to the firefightersconcessions. Members of the Key Largo Ambulance Corps registered the new company with the Florida Department of State last week. Ronald Fell is the companys president, and Scott Robinson and Don Bock are the vice president and secretary, respectively, said Jack Bridges, the Ambulance Corpsattorney. Bock will most likely be the new fire chief, replacing Sergio Garcia. Garcia is popular among his firefighters, but Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District commissioners grew tired of his leadership style. Three of the five commissioners led by Commissioner Bob Thomas voted in March to discontinue the districts contract with the fire department without cause because of what they said was Garcias refusal to take advice from two independent audits and for leading his department through what they said was intimidation and retribution.But since the contract was canceled, no one from the public has come forward to criticize Garcia on the record and several rank-and-file firefighters have told The Reporter they support their chief.Commissioner Anthony Allen and Chairwoman Jennifer Miller fervently opposed their colleagues Thomas and commissioners Marilyn Beyer and George Mirabella on the decision. But the latter three commissioners arent backing down, and in another 3-2 vote last Monday, they decided to transfer leadership of the fire department to the Ambulance Corps. Garcia this week slammed the three commissioners for handing his departments roughly $1.5 million budget over to the Ambulance Corps without bid. He doubts the Ambulance Corps has the experience to lead a nationally recognized fire department the way he did for the past 15 years. The fire departments board of directors responded to the commissioners last Tuesday with concessions that included a new way of choosing a chief the departments board of directors, not membership, would pick the person. Also, the district commissioners could veto the candidate by a 4-1 supermajority. The newly created fire department moved forward this Monday with creating a board of directors. It includes Bock, Fell and Robinson, as well as former district commissioner Mark Wheaton, former fire chief David Gow, former editor of The Reporter and former Key Largo Chamber of Commerce President Jackie Harder and Kenny Edge, a member of the Ambulance Corps.The newly formed company had received 23 applications from current firefighters as of Wednesday, Bridges said.11 years later, woman resurfacesOne morning in February 2002, then-43-year-old Brenda Heist dropped her two children off at school in a small town in Lancaster County, Pa. That was the last time any of her family and friends saw or heard from her until last week.Heist approached a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy on April 26 in Key Largo telling him she might be wanted in Pinellas County. When the deputy ran her name, he found that she had been listed as missing and possibly deceased, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said.Detective Sgt. John Schofield with the Lititz Borough Police Department told The Reporter that after taking her then 8and 12year-old kids to school, Heist met with a group of homeless people planning to hitchhike to the Sunshine State. She decided to turn her back on her family and went along with that homeless group and traveled to Florida with them, Schofield said. Heists disappearance shocked her family and friends. Sure, she and her husband were going through a divorce, but it was going very well and plans were made with both of them to stay living near each other and raising the kids together, Schofield said. Pennsylvania television station WGALNews 8 reports that for the past 10 years, Heist survived by sleeping under bridges and in tents and eating discarded food out of trash cans.She reportedly came forward after reaching the end of her rope, authorities said.Schofield said there was no indication at the time that Heist was suffering from any mental condition. There was no mentalhealth issue going on at the time that anyone was aware of. It appears that drugs had nothing to do with it and she was not dependent on drugs, Schofield said. Heists family is aware she is alive and living in Florida, Schofield said. Family members could not be reached at press time but Heist reportedly plans to move in with her mother in Texas.She had left her family in PennsylvaniaBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGO Saturday,May 4,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Salad and Bread Service to the table Baby Iceberg Lettuce with Stilton Blue Cheese, Shaved Eggs, Smoked Bacon, Russian Dressing with Knotted Egg Rolls Breakfast Scramble Eggs to order with all the xings Apple Wood Smoked Bacon & Sausages And an array of pastries Array of Artisan Meats & Fromage Island Seafood Display Featuring Key West Pink Shrimp Florida Coast Oysters Middle Neck Clams Carving Stations Rosemary & Grain Mustard Roasted Strip Loin with Wild Mushroom Demi-Glace Whole Roasted Red Snapper with Mango Papaya Salsa & Coconut Curry Sauce Chefs Featured Entres Jamaican Jerk Free Range Cornish Hens with Dutch Potato, Leeks & Sweet Plantain Hash Red Stripe Beer Braised Beef Short Ribs with Trufed Banana Polenta House Made Dessert Display Glazed Key Lime Bundt Cake and Grand Marnier Berries, Flourless Chocolate Cake, Strawberry Tarts, Mascarpone Cheesecake Toped with Peanut Butter Mousse MOTHERS DAY BRUNCHThe number to call for reservations is 305-517-4580 Sunday, May 12, 2013 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. $72.00 Adults 13 and over $28.00 6-12 years Under 5 Our Compliments Includes one Brunch Style Cocktail Bottomless Mimosas or Bellinis $10.

Given the history of growth and development issues in our state, that is either good or bad news, depending on your perspective. The last time Florida experienced that kind of growth, the comprehensive 1985 Growth Management Act was adopted by the governor and Legislature. This act was designed to deal with the many challenges new growth presented to roads, schools, drinking water supplies, stormwater drainage, coastlines and natural areas. Even with this program in place, Florida still didnt keep up with all the impacts new growth caused.The 2011 Legislature undid much of the 1985 law. First and foremost, it abolished the states land planning agency, the Department of Community Affairs, along with most of its administrative rules. As a result, concurrency programs to help fund transportation and schools became optional, state oversight of growth and development was minimized in favor of local government and it made it more difficult for citizens to challenge inappropriate plan amendments.At the same time, drastic budget cuts to the nations biggest land-protection program didnt help either. All of this happened supposedly in the name of job creation and economic growth. Now that we are emerging from the economic downturn, what is the 2013 Legislature doing? For starters, it continues to loosen related environmental controls, interfere with local government home-rule authority and tout the need to further streamline regulations in order to promote more economic development. How does this work to protect the quality of life that has attracted our existing 19 million residents? Who ultimately pays the bill?Our organization, 1,000 Friends of Florida, is concerned that continuing down this path is a recipe for future unintended consequences that will cost us all, economically as well as environmentally. Weak growth-management controls, especially at a time when the next boom is at our doorstep, is a dangerous policy. Taxpayers will ultimately pay.This next wave of growth can be accommodated if strong growth and environmental controls are maintained and funded, along with payment of reasonable developer impact costs and effective local and state land acquisition programs. Let your legislators know that Florida must plan for growth if we are to protect our quality of life, natural resources and pocketbooks. Charles Pattison, president 1,000 Friends of Florida Tallahassee Editors note: The letter writer was executive director of the Monroe County Land Authority from 1985 to 1987, and a Monroe County planner before that.Lawmakers correct in extending tax on farms to help finance River of Grass restorationFor those keeping score, Floridas environment won big this year with passage of an Everglades bill that provides critical financial support for cleanup efforts being partially paid for by the polluters. With little fanfare and some quiet backroom negotiating the Florida House took the lead on the states plan for restoring the River of Grass by extending a $25-per-acre tax on farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area. That tax, set to expire in 2017, will now be extended until 2026. Gov. Rick Scott, who was part of the behind-thescenes negotiations, issued a statement Thursday as the legislation passed the Senate and headed to his desk to sign: This is an historic investment in Floridas Everglades and I want to thank the Legislature, and particularly the House and Senate leadership, for seeing the value of Floridas natural treasures to our communities. Here in the Keys, the benefits of a clean Everglades are pretty obvious. Our drinking water comes from well fields in extreme south Miami-Dade County, tapping aquifers that depend on freshwater recharge from the Everglades. The name River of Grass is no accident. Fresh water from rainfall as far north as Kissimmee eventually wends its way south, bringing life-giving water for plants, animals and people. Without that recharge, Florida Bay would become more brackish and fish populations would suffer if poison from agricultural runoff generated by sugar fields and cattle pastures continue unabated. The Everglades Foundation, which has fought many long and hard battles to convince state lawmakers and federal policy makers to fund Everglades cleanup, issued a statement of support following Thursdays Florida Senate vote piggybacking on the House vote. We remain hopeful that the Florida Legislature will pass the states budget with the $70 million for Everglades restoration as committed by Chairmen Joe Negron and Seth McKeel during recent budget negotiations, said Eric Eikenberg, chief executive officer of the Everglades Foundation. In yet another piece of good news regarding commitments to the Everglades, our nations new Interior secretary, Sally Jewell, took her first official tour by coming to the Everglades. Wednesday, she inspected parts of the 221-square mile Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and Everglades National Park. Her visit on the eve of the Florida Senate vote was good timing. And lets hope the Legislatures unanimous support for the Everglades bill this session signals that money committed for restoration wont suffer the budget ax in coming years. As the Everglades Foundation likes to point out, one out of every three Floridians (7 million people) rely on the Everglades for their water supply. Thats a pretty big constituency to keep in mind.That wasnt meLetter writer Mr. Blackburn of Marathon certainly has a right to his opinions and I am not familiar with his issue. I just wanted to clarify that the Ted Blackburn of Islamorada (on the Village Council) is not the same guy. Thanks. Ted Blackburn IslamoradaPlumber drips generosityId like to extend a sincere thank you to Tommy Gilmartin, owner of Marathon Plumbing. In 2009, Marathon Plumbing donated a free hookup to our new sewer system in a fundraiser for Patty Donahue. Patty, employed as a bartender at Boatmans Sombrero Resorts Latitudes Bar, was battling throat cancer. Three hundred tickets were sold at $20 apiece. I headed to Sombrero with my donation for the silent action and to a purchase my ticket. As fate had it, I was able to get two tickets. The next morning, I found a letter on the windshield of my car. My ticket (the second one) was the winner. Marathon Plumbings crew of one, E.R., assisted by owner Tommy, completed the job with no problems. I was expecting some hidden charges; there were none. Pattys cancer has been in remission these past few years. To everyones dismay, it has returned. My thoughts and prayers are with Patty. And thank you to Tommy for being a good friend to Patty. His generosity helped us both. Karen Trujillo MarathonThank a nurseNurses serve a vital role in delivering quality, patient-centered care. They comfort, advise, listen and serve as advocates for patients, providing the human touch in medical care. Continually at the bedside, nurses always place their patientswell-being above all else. This years theme for National Nurses Week is Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care, and nurses are truly at the forefront of both quality and innovation.To ensure their patientshealth and welfare, nurses regularly develop innovative solutions and look for ways to enhance care. Their ongoing commitment to quality is what moves health care forward what often begins as a solution for one patient, becomes an advancement that benefits countless others.During the week of May 6-12, we will have an opportunity to honor and recognize nurses for the invaluable role they play in patient care. Please join all of us at Lower Keys Medical Center in celebrating National Nurses Week and show your appreciation to the nurses in your life. These dedicated individuals make a meaningful difference in peoples lives every day. Its their commitment to quality and superior patient care that will ultimately transform health care in the U.S. We value our nurses and sincerely thank them for everything they do. We would also like to thank our island community for their continued support of Lower Keys Medical Center. Nicki Will, CEO Lower Keys Medical Center Stock Island Housing bill awaits ScottWith approval from the state House and Senate, privately owned military housing in Key West and throughout Florida will be exempt from local property taxes pending the signature of Gov. Rick Scott. The one restriction to the legislation, adopted during session this week, is that active-duty military personnel and their families must live in the units for the exemption to stand.The Key West scenario involves the 2007 transfer of 895 units of U.S. Navy-owned housing, not the land beneath it, to for-profit British company Balfour Beatty Communities Southeast Housing LLC.Then-Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum rescinded a property-tax exemption in 2011 and filed an $11.5 million lien for back taxes, penalties and interest on Southeast properties at Sigsbee Park, Trumbo Annex, Truman Annex, Peary Court and the Branch Medical Clinic.Borglums review was prompted by the increasing local trend of renting excess units to civilians with no ties to the military. Under the pending laws, those units would be subject to local taxes.Florida Keys Rep. Holly Raschein, who lobbied for the legislation, said, I believe this compromise provides the best policy on this issue and helps to strike the necessary balance between ensuring that our local schools and emergency services are properly funded and the need to provide excellent housing options for military families. The proposed law mirrors a 2008 agreement between Balfour Beatty and the Santa Rosa County Property Appraisers Office in Pensacola, except that deal swapped the term tax with payment in lieu of tax although the rate was equal to the applicable tax rates and the money was used to support the same services as property taxes. Asked how making a payment in lieu of taxes is more advantageous to Balfour Beatty than simply paying taxes, spokeswoman Kathy Grim said, Because we are involved in pending litigation that is related to these issues, we are not able to provide any comment at this time. In fact, one piece of litigation involves Southeast Housing suing Monroe County Property Appraiser Scott Russell, asking Chief Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin to vacate the lien. Both sides are still submitting arguments to the court; no hearing is currently scheduled.

The recommendations were issued Thursday in advance of a scheduled May 14 hearing in Tallahassee to consider a March 2012 complaint filed by No Name residents Bob and Julianne Reynolds.Filed against Lower Keys utility Keys Energy Services, the complaint argues that the PSC, not Monroe County, has jurisdiction over electrifying the island.In addressing five separate issues, PSC staff clearly states the commission should deny the countys motion to dismiss the amended complaint and that the commission has jurisdiction to resolve the Reynoldscomplaint. The PSC staff says Reynolds and No Name Key property owners are entitled to receive electric power from Keys Energy under the terms of the commissions territorial agreement between Keys Energy and the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative. PSC staff recommends disposing of the complaint by granting ultimate relief the Reynolds have requested and order that the customers located on No Name Key in Keys Energys service territory are entitled to receive electric service. The 43 No Name homeowners, who now get electricity through solar and generators, have publicly battled over commercial electricity for decades, and until recently there were numerous legal hurdles blocking a resolution.The Monroe County Commission appears ready to wash its hands of the issue, voting unanimously in February to drop a trespassing action against Keys Energy on aerial easements on No Name, as well as an appeal of a Circuit Court decision putting final say over electrification in the PSCs hands.The commission did vote to continue its involvement in the PSC case. Monroe has blocked commercial electricity at every turn on No Name, arguing that its land-use plan, which prohibits utilities on No Name, takes precedence over the state. The county has also refused to issue building permits to connect to the poles.No Name resident Alicia Putney has for years been the driving force against commercial electricity on the 1,000-acre island adjacent to Big Pine Key.The PSC will decide only on jurisdiction May 14.

The unimaginable became reality Wednesday for Maytag Clean Laundry owner Donna Farmer. After spending years trying to maintain the business in the face of rising costs due to the sewering of Marathon, the longtime resident shut her business of 31-plus years down for good. The shutters that opened each morning on the open-air business remained closed on the rainy Keys morning. It was pretty difficult having to close the door on three decades of my life. I know I gave it all I could, but in the end it just wasnt enough, Farmer said.There is also the larger issue of where everyone in the Middle Keys that relies on her business will turn to do their laundry. Farmers was the only Laundromat between mile markers 29 and 82.The last gasp of hope came when Farmer received interest from a Marathon property owner whose tenant, a customer of Farmers, approached him about installing a washer and dryer in their unit. The man, whose name she declined to divulge, inquired about purchasing the laundry.He asked why, so he came to see me on Good Friday and said hed like to try to do something to help, she said.The two contacted the state Department of Environmental Protection office in Marathon, and both wrote letters buying Farmer a 30day extension her fourth of her wastewater permit so the potential buyer could do his due diligence. She had planned to close the last day of March.I havent heard anything from him since, Farmer said.Ateary-eyed Farmer told the Keynoter that circumstances beyond my control led to the business closing.Shes been back and forth with the city of Marathon, seeking a reprieve from the enormous assessment and monthly water bill she got hit with when the city installed its state-mandated sewer system.In the midst of that fight, a June 2009 fire at the Maytag destroyed her dryers and cost Farmer $100,000 in new equipment, including a number of front-loading washers. She still owes roughly $67,000 and said the equipment will be repossessed. They said they would sell them for whatever they could get for them and hold me for the deficiency. Who knows what that will be, Farmer said. Farmer, like every business and homeowner in Marathon, is required to connect to the city sewer system.If she sought another extension, received it and kept the business open, shed be faced with a $40,000 bill to abandon her on-site plant. Even after roughly $20,000 worth of donated labor, she still wouldnt be able to cover the cost.Theres costs involved with closing it down and I dont see where that construction money would be coming from, she said.Thats not to mention the washing machines Farmer said are on the verge of aging out. They should be replaced with water-efficient units, she said. In 2009, Farmer faced a $149,000 sewer bill based on 31.7 equivalent dwelling units, which cost $4,730 each based on expected daily water use.The City Council passed a law that year allowing property owners to lease sewer credits so Farmer wouldnt be faced with an untenable bill.Her EDU count was reduced to 19.11 in August last year, and by another 75 percent after that. It hasnt been enough.Farmer opened her first laundry, at 17th Court and U.S. 1, in 1981, and moved to 60th Street and U.S. 1 in 1987. Shes been on a month-to-month lease there for 27 years, an unheard of arrangement today.An emotional Farmer expected to be busy this week cleaning up and moving things out. Everything is up in the air after that.I dont think I could afford to stay; the cost of living is pretty expensive. I dont know what the future holds; its kind of scary, she said.

With a commencement ceremony at the Tennessee Williams Theatre on Stock Island Friday night, there are now 80 newly minted Florida Keys Community College graduates in Monroe County. That includes 14 nursing students who went through a traditional pinning ceremony. Theyre now eligible to take the state nursing test.This is FKCCs 47th graduating class. Last year, 109 graduates walked in the ceremony, although college spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said the spring and summer numbers arent finalized so while less are walking, it doesnt mean less are graduating.Chris Minnerly, a graduate of Key West High School and as of Friday an FKCC graduate with an associates degree in science, was this past years Student Government Association president and gave the commencement address.Minnerly graduated from high school in 2010 after what he described as just kind of getting by and, in Ernst-Leonards words, really blossomed at FKCC. I opened my eyes when I came here and saw how things are in the world and learned that it takes a lot of dedication to get change going, Minnerly said. I decided I wanted to get more involved in school. I figured education will help me get a better job down the road.In addition to his leadership and volunteer position with the student government, Minnerly has a work-study job in the colleges Enrollment Services Department and interns for U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Miami).He was accepted to Florida Atlantic University in January and plans to start studying neuroscience in the fall with an eye on going to medical school. The state Senate on Thursday approved a watered-down version of a controversial bill that could have meant sharp rate hikes statewide for new Citizens Property Insurance Corp. policyholders.But Senate Bill 1770, sponsored by Sen. David Simmons (R-Altamonte Springs), still accomplishes Simmonsmain goal of creating a clearinghouse by which Citizens, the state-run insurer of last resort, can steer policies into the private market.Gov. Rick Scott has mandated Citizens depopulate at least half of its roughly 1.3 million policies to private insurance companies. Heather Carruthers, president of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, said the nonprofit supports the idea of a clearinghouse but that it wont immediately affect the Keys because private wind insurers are largely unavailable here. It doesnt immediately affect us, she said, but its not necessarily a bad thing to get out from under Citizens. On April 30, the House approved a new version of the bill, 111-6, and the Senate on Thursday did likewise, 32-1. It now goes to Scott for his signature.The Senate version originally contained onerous increases that in Monroe County could have been upward of 137 percent on new policies. The average windstorm premium in the Keys now is $2,900, meaning a new customer in Monroe would pay $6,873 if that Senate language had become law.Efforts by Keys FIRM, brokered by Rep. Holly Raschein, led to a carve out that protected Citizens policyholders in Monroe County because of the lack of private insurance alternatives. In the end, it wasnt necessary, as the House refused to approve any version of the Senate bill that included statewide rate increases. Im glad we had it [carve out] in there just in case. I think everyone can breath a sigh of relief, Raschein said. The House also rebuffed Senate language reducing the maximum value of a house or condominium Citizens can insure from $1 million to $500,000. It approved a $700,000 cap that takes effect Jan. 1, 2017. The Keys exemption means Monroe County will keep the $1 million cap. The requirements ... do not apply in counties where the [state Office of Insurance Regulation] determines there is not a reasonable degree of competition, the bill says. Most private companies do not write wind policies in Monroe. Citizens president and Chief Executive Office Barry Gilway issued a statement lauding passage of SB 1770.Many policyholders will be able to find more comprehensive coverage at a lower price in the private market. That, in turn, reduces the likelihood and amount of assessments on all Florida policyholders face in the event of a major storm, he said. Original SB 1770 language referred to proposed premium increases as implementing actuarially sound rates, a phrase to which FIRM has objected since its inception in 2006.

Most people shy away from designer clothing and accessories because of the price tags typically associated with them. However, buying quality over quantity can pay off in the long run, especially if youre buying classic pieces that fit well. There is nothing worse than buying something you love only to have it fall apart after a few washes. I can think of several outfits Ive bought for special occasions best friends wedding, anniversaries, vacations that I no longer own because they just didnt last. What Id give to still have them and reminisce about the wonderful memories created while wearing them.If you add up what you typically spend on clothing and accessories throughout the year, youll likely be amazed at how much of that clothing gets tossed or donated at the end of a season. Clothing made today is often not well made and therefore doesnt withstand the wear and tear of our everyday lives. Consequently, more is not better.Designer clothing is in a class of its own. The quality of workmanship, fabric and fit will ensure the designer item will stay in your closet for years to come. The Blue boutique at 718 Caroline St., Key West, and at 82229 Overseas Highway, Islamorada, has an islandstyle vibe that keeps with the Keyslaid-back way while offering contemporary and designer fashions for both men and women.

Avisit to one of Blues boutiques is a must for all fashionistas.

Those designersfocus on quality fabrics and timeless styles will allow you to create a distinctive look for every occasion.In addition to their amazing selection of clothing and fashion-forward accessories, owner David Symons has on display his one-of-a-kind jewelry. His pieces brilliantly capture the beauty of the Keys through the use of bright hues and bold designs. By combining beads of semiprecious stones, silver, gold, glass and pearls, he creates unique pieces. His successful jewelry line is offered in all Blue boutique locations and includes chokers, earrings, bracelets, long chain necklaces and other jewelry styles.
