Before the jury left for deliberations, Jones told them their decision would be given great weight.This week attorneys on both sides argued whether the defendant should spend the rest of his life in Florida prison or die from lethal injection.Prosecutors opted to ground their closing arguments to the jury in terms of hard evidence speaking directly to the heinous, atrocious and cruel manner of the murder, whereas defense counsel spoke in more abstract terms of morality and how LeBarons life went off course. Kellie Peterson, defense counsel from the Regional Office of Civil and Conflict Counsel, described a pattern of various abuses that began when LeBaron, now 36, was just three years old.Testimony from LeBarons brother and sister described mother Melba as a devout Jehovahs Witness and strict disciplinarian who regularly abused the siblings.The problem is, Peterson said, we all get so wrapped up in this processLeBaron found guilty in grisly murderBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSWELCOMEThe saga continues: Overseas lawsuit filed The former Overseas Liquor & Lounge building in Marathon generates a lot of press for a business that hasnt been open for more than five years. The latest in a long-running saga involving the once landmark property is a lawsuit filed Tuesday by Marathon attorney Bob Miller calling for the removal of probate attorney Richard Warner as the co-personal representative for the estate of Joseph Ardolino, which owns the Overseas. Miller filed the suit on behalf of the estate of Angela Nunery, Ardolinos granddaughter and a 27-percent stakeholder in the estate. Nunery is also a former client of Warners. In a lengthy filing, Miller accuses Warner of taking advantage of his position as representative by paying his own law firm roughly $100,000 to represent himself in that position, unbeknownst to the estates five beneficiaries. Miller also claims Warner breached his fiduciary duty to the estate and accuses him of self-dealing in estate assets in the hopes of collecting a larger fee once the Overseas property is sold. To that end, Miller says Warner cost the estate roughly $337,000 in lost rents ($3,191 per month) and loan payments ($155,000 promissory note) from former business owners Roy and Beverly Dickens when Warner called due a balloon loan in 2008, again unbeknownst to the beneficiaries. Miller said he believes Warner was attempting to increase the resale value of the property, and thus the fee heLawyer fees at issue in estate dispute quagmireBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPSC votes on TuesdayIt could be a banner week for commercial electricity proponents on No Name Key. On Tuesday, many expect the state Public Service Commission to approve plans to electrify the island. The next day, the Monroe County Commission is set to discuss results of a study that recommends doing away with a county prohibition of public utilities on the island. Tuesdays PSC hearing was originally meant only to decide whether the PSC has jurisdiction over the No Name decision, but spokeswoman Cindy Muir said it would be handled as a proposed agency action. Along with jurisdiction, (if approved) the Commission will also decide whether or not No Name Key should receive electrical power. Once the order is issued, if not protested, it will be become final after 21 days, Muir said in an email to the Keynoter No Name resident Alicia Putney, for years the driving force fighting commercial electricity on the 1,000acre island, was denied the right to intervene in the PSC matter on April 19. Muir said Putney filed a petition with the state Supreme Court to overturn that ruling. But that wont stop the PSC from holding its hearing, according to Muir. And whatever the PSC decides, Putney only has the right to appeal her denial of intervention. Depending on how the PSC rules, other parties named in the complaint brought by No Name resident Jim Reynolds against Lower Keys utility Keys Energy Services would have the right to appeal, including Monroe County. But that would appear unlikely given the countys recent actions regarding No Name Key. In February, the commission voted unanimously to drop a trespassing action against Keys Energy over aerial easements on No Name, as well as an appeal of a CircuitEnd of long battle may be in offingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEYKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThis newly installed Sombrero Lighthouse replica sign greets visitors to Marathon at the west end of town.The design was approved in December 2011,but permitting issues held up installation.Lifetime Keys resident Larry Herlth constructed the signs theres another on Grassy Key that weigh an estimated 400 to 500 pounds and are 4.5 feet wide at the base.

More than 2,000 people attended events during the four-day festival, which ended Sunday. They came from 35 states and five foreign countries. One couple from Orlando, Fl. came to be married. Stephen Bogart, the son of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, was the star attendee and co-host. But it was the young Orlando couple that almost stole the show at the posh Bogart Ball held Saturday night at Hilton Key Largo Resort.

wedding reception. Reid Nichols, 33, and Dana Karen, 28, had been dating for three years. The decision to make the Bogart Ball their own, was a last-minute thing, they said. It was just so wellreceived, said Craig Cope, president of the Key Largo Chamber and official co-host for the event. They even got their pictures taken with Stephen Bogart and (film critic) Leonard Maltin. The Casablanca-themed Bogart Ball included a red carpet cocktail reception in a casino setting, a Moroccanthemed dinner and dancing and the impromptu wedding reception as well. Mike Dojc, a blogger for the website 2life, even posted a picture of the young couple in front of the iconic movie poster with Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart promoting the 1948 film release for Key Largo. In addition to putting Key Largo on the map as a tourist destination, the movie is the fourth and final film that Bogie and Bacall made together, showcasing their legendary onand off-screen chemistry. Key Largo has a strong storyline and a great cast, working under the direction of John Huston, said Maltin. It deals with such timeless subjects as power, ambition, and integrity. Maltin said that he became involved with the Key Largo festival because Bogart is his all-time favorite actor.Event coordinator Suzanne Holmquist said that the Bogart Family Estate pushed for outdoor screenings in order to highlight the tropical beauty that makes Key Largo a unique destination.The four-day festival featured 38 film screenings, workshops, a memorabilia exhibit, rides on the original African Queen and the formal ball. Cope said the Chamber is already thinking about ways to improve the event for next year, noting that Stephen Bogart and the Bogart Family Estate were tremendous partners for this firstever Key Largo festival.He (Stephen) was all over the place; we kept him working. But he and Leonard Maltin were just great to work with. I cant tell you how many people came up to offer their thanks for hosting the festival. I heard that over and over.would collect. The Dickenses couldnt afford to pay the note and closed the business in February 2008. Its been dormant since. For Richard to hire himself and his law firm to represent himself as personal representative is a direct conflict with the best interest of his client, Miller said. Warner told the Keynoter that Miller attempted a similar action in 2009 and said that he considers the suit to be simply harassment. Well be defending and ultimately dismissing that. Were just not going to back down, Warner said Friday. Warner added that estate beneficiaries were made aware of attorneys fees Warner paid himself in interim accounting reports filed as part of the estate proceedings. He had agreed in a mediated 2007 agreement to not charge personal representative fees. Of course we werent going to hire outside attorneys. Ive done a monster amount of work Ill never be paid for, he said, referring to his role as representative. It all began around 2006, when Warner began representing Nunery in the Ardolino estate proceedings. By May 2007, Warner and Deltona-area attorney John Parente were appointed co-personal representatives for the estate. Warner remained Nunerys attorney, which Miller claims in his suit is a conflict of interest Warner never addressed with Nunery. Theres a lot of times that happens. We did wonders for her to get her logged in as a 27 percent interested person in the estate, Warner said. By February 2008, the Overseas Liquor & Lounge was closed. Warner later put it up for sale at $1.8 million. It appears to be his intention to get rid of the [Dickenses] before the lease was even up. Warner insisted on a $1,000 per month [rent] increase and would only give him a month-to-month lease, Miller said. Miller is requesting that Warner be removed as representative and pay to Nunerys estate damages, attorneys fees and other and further relief as to the Court appears just.

Court decision that put final say over electrification in the PSCs hands. The commission did vote to continue its involvement in the PSC complaint, but PSC staff recommendations released on May 2 were strongly in favor or electricity. Meanwhile, the commission is scheduled to hear the results of a coastal barrier overlay district study it paid engineering and planning firm Keith & Schnars to conduct. The $40,600 study was to a wide-ranging look at county policies regarding the federal Coastal Barrier Resource System. Congress enacted the Coastal Barrier Resources Act in 1982 to protect coastal habitats, and the county in 2001 created a coastal barrier overlay district prohibiting utilities in such areas. According to county documents, the Keith & Schnars study recommends doing away with the prohibition on utilities created by the 2001 ordinance. If the CBRS overlay ordinance was eliminated, CBRS system units would still be protected from development by the countys tier system, the study says. The 43 No Name homeowners have publicly battled over commercial electricity for decades. They get power now by banking it in batteries via solar panels and generators.Back to BOCC on WednesdayFrom No Name,1A Four-day fest will returnFrom Bogart,1APribramsky begins work on HOB auditFormer District 1 Monroe County School Board member Steve Pribramsky, an accountant and auditor by trade, hopes to start a review of the financial and construction records related to the three-year, $40 million rebuild of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West. Superintendent Mark Porter executed an agreement with Pribramsky on Thursday afternoon that is set to initially cost between $15,000 and $18,000, which falls below Porters $25,000 spending threshold. The contract runs from May 10 to June 30. The hire, although already done, is up for discussion by the School Board at a Tuesday workshop beginning at 3 p.m. at administrative offices on Trumbo Point.Porter opted to bring in an outside auditor given months of pressure from board member Ed Davidson and Stuart Kessler, a member of the districts advisory Audit and Finance Committee, and following the sudden departure of former administrator Michael Kinneer, who has handled HOB financials since 2010.Pribramsky said hed sit down with Davidson on Monday to review all of the research and analysis already completed.This has been a long and extended construction effort and it is necessary and appropriate at this time to invest some additional resources into the successful closure of this important project, Porter said.He said Pribramskys firm Pribramsky and Zuelch, with offices in Key West, Marathon and Islamorada, has the best expertise and immediate availability to meet the needs of Monroe County schools.In a nod to Davidson and Kessler, Porter said, It is their initial work that has helped define and focus the further efforts needed at this time.The HOB project has been mired in problems including a complete redesign to comply with city height limits; the discovery of compromised soil foundation that had to be replaced; the exclusion of an essential parking lot; and myriad instances of what Davidson has challenged as questionable accounting.Kessler and Davidson have complained that documents provided by Coastal Construction are insufficient and dont meet reporting requirements outlined in the construction contract. Pribramsky, who only served one four-year term, was a dogged critic of the School District finances at the time and led the charge to overhaul the administration during and following the downfall of thenSuperintendent Randy Acevedo and his wife Monique, then the adult education coordinator.Board likely to discuss at Tuesday workshopBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSZip-line issue returns to CityOpponents to a planned zip-line course at Crane Point Hammock wont have long to wait before making their case against the project to the Marathon City Council. The council is slated to hold a quasi-judicial hearing to consider a conditional use for the proposed $1.1 million course on Tuesday, just eight days after the Planning Commission voted to recommend the conditional use on 30 vote. Two commissioners were absent from that meeting. Anumber of vocal opponents to the zip line many of whom reside in the residential subdivision surrounding the 63-acre nonprofit nature preserve -turned out for Mondays Planning Commission hearing. They objected on numerous grounds, but the commission voted 3-0 to grant the use. The decision was based on staff stating the project qualified for the use and that other concerns would be addressed as the zip-line progresses. In fact, the commission hardly discussed the issue after roughly three hours of presentations and public comment. It was moved for approval and voted on in less than five minutes, a decision that drew loud boos from the crowd. The council is likely to hear many of same objections as the Planning Commission, such as that zip-line is an active, not passive, recreational use, and that it interferes with White-crown pigeon habitat. Crane Points presentation on Monday unveiled a proposed 2,900-foot course featuring nine towers and five ground level or just above landing platforms. Its conditional use is consistent with the comprehensive plan and land development regulations, according to city staff. The zip-line project has been in the works since 2009, with Crane Points board of directors hoping it provides a sustained source of income. The property has struggled financially in recent years. The City Council agreed to pursue a $727,000 state Community Development Block Grant on behalf of Crane Point. Its based on the attraction creating 21 fulltime jobs for at lease one year.The city would have to pay back the state $35,000 for each job not created. Crane Point has said it would cover the first four jobs if necessary. Tuesdays City Council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.

Instead, the Key Largo Ambulance Corps will probably take over leadership of the department May 27 with a newly-formed, nonprofit fire company. The decision to sever the districts contract with the Fire Department was essentially a move to get rid Chief Sergio Garcia, who has led the department for the past 15 years. Commissioner Bob Thomas made it a priority to weaken Garcias role in the department since he came to office in November. Garcia has remained relatively quiet since the commissioners voted to end the contract in March, but he broke his silence Wednesday. What we have here is Willy Wonka trying to run the fire service, Garcia told The Reporter He has no business being a commissioner, especially when he doesnt listen to the voice of the people and everything he says is not based on fact. Thomas, a retired airline captain, owns Key Largo Chocolates. District board Chairwoman Jennifer Miller and Commissioner Tony Allen strongly oppose Thomaspush to cut ties with the department, but were out-voted by Commissioners Marilyn Beyer and George Mirabella. Miller said that only a small handful of her constituents support discontinuing the Fire Departments contract. This isnt obviously what the community wants, and if it is, I havent heard from them, she said. Allen and Miller Tuesday voted to accept the concessions, which were written by the Fire Departments board of directors. But Thomas, Mirabella and Beyer said they did not go far enough. Mirabella called the concessions smoke and mirrors. No one is even interested in the baloney you have handed out, Mirabella told the Fire Departments board of directors President Frank Conklin. This is all just a smoke screen to stall. The only solution we have is to create a new corporation with better bylaws. Garcia said he and the Key Largo Volunteer FireRescue Department are sticking around no matter who occupies the towns two fire stations. We are not going to dissolve our corporation, he said. We are going to find a way to provide service.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOCity moves forward on dredging referendumWith a unanimous Tuesday approval of the Key West City Commission, voters are one step closer to an Oct. 1 referendum on dredging to allow larger cruise ships at Key West. Commissioners authorized, in the first of two required public hearings, the language of a binding referendum to request a federal study on impact of the dredging. The vote will come after years of public debate and political maneuvering. The two sides are familiar foes: the Key West Chamber of Commerce has come out for a study of the quality-oflife, environmental and revenue impacts worded to avoid mentioning mass market tourism while eco-advocacy group Last Stand does not want to even consider any proposed dredging. Last Stand argues dredging violates legislation that established the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.Both groups have formed political action committees and are actively fund raising to spread their message further.The $2 million to $3 million study would task the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, but with the understanding that no city money is to be spent on the study. The actual cost of the dredging to widen the ship channel is estimated at some $36 million.And there are no funds identified, as of yet, for that work if and when the project gets approval. The plan calls for widening Cut B of the ship channel from 300 feet to 450 feet, displacing 150,000 cubic yards of protected sea floor.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTDUI manslaughter arrest madeAdeadly crash on the Seven Mile Bridge on April 17 put a Miami-Dade County man in jail Thursday under a charge of committing manslaughter while driving under the influence.

Debbie Fetterly USPS Pembroke PinesQuestions raised about changes, spending on $40 million in federal money a serious matter Pribramsky the right choice to clean up HOB mess Superintendent Mark Porter took the advice of School Board member Ed Davidson this week and announced he was hiring a financial auditor to review the troubled Horace OBryant Middle School construction process. He made the right choice by tapping Steve Pribramsky. Pribramsky is a former School Board member who was highly instrumental in bringing down the corrupt Acevedo administration in 2008 and 2009. If not for Pribramsky and current School Board members John Dick and (to a lesser extent) Andy Griffiths, we may not have known the full extent of the graft that went on under Randy Acevedos watch. In the end, we found out that his wife, Monique Acevedo, stole close to a half a million dollars while she was in charge of the School Districts adult education department. Shes in prison about half-way through an eight-year sentence. Randy Acevedo got off easier. He was only convicted of covering up his wifes theft and served three-years of probation.If you recall those days, there were forces at work within the School District and on the School Board that wanted the story to go away. Please dont look any further, some asked. Others, entrenched in the corrupt morass and cronyism of the Key West political establishment, were more demanding. When Randy Acevedo was handcuffed, a group of women resembling the Manson family wailed at police as they took him away to be processed. All the while, Pribramsky persisted in demanding the truth. If he did this from a comfortable perch in the Middle or Upper Keys, it would be less impressive. But at the time, Pribramsky and his family lived in Key West right in the middle of Conch country. Pribramsky only sought and served one term. In the meantime, the most egregious corruption that plagued the School District seems to have gone away with the Acevedos and their friends who occupied high-paid administrative positions. But something went wrong in the process since the $40-million Horace OBryant project broke ground. Davidson and Audit and Finance Committee member Stuart Kessler identified at least $1.8 million in questionable charges billed by Coastal Construction, the lead contractor on the HOB project. They identified more than 70 change orders that the company did not report to the administration of then-Superintendent Joseph Burke.Kessler said it was not Coastal Constructions fault that change orders were not reported. The School Districts finance staff signed off on them without the knowledge of the School Board. The superintendent can approve spending of up to $25,000, but he or she must also disclose the spending to the School Board under state law. Davidson and Kessler are valuable watchdogs and should be commended for bringing to light what is at least questionable accounting. The district may reap hundreds of thousands of dollars in refunds should the mistakes be confirmed. Given his record on the School Board, Pribramsky is the right person to get to the bottom of the HOB debacle. It should also prove interesting to see what else he finds as he lifts the cover on this latest construction boondoggle.

On April 7, the Hurricane Hole hosted a fundraiser for Jennifer Phillips and her family to help them face her battle with cancer. Funds were raised through a variety of activities that included a belly-flop contest, silent auction and 50/50 raffle. Many of those in attendance also had their heads shaved and more than 100 families participated in purchasing a small section of the pirate-ship playground to paint as their own. The event took place all afternoon and generated roughly $6,000. Alarge percentage of those in attendance were friends and co-workers from the Key West Pre-School Coop, where Ms. Jen had been working for the past three years.On April 28, the Hurricane Hole family rallied again in support of longtime employee Mirza Qumruzzaman, known as Alvin. Alvin and his family have been commuting back and forth from Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami following the birth of their son Rafan.Just days after his birth, Rafan was diagnosed with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a condition that will require lifelong medication and monitoring. An employee of the Hurricane Hole since 2007, Alvin is well known among the Hurricane Holes loyal customers. We raised close to $8,000 through individual donations, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and karaoke bingo. Donations can still be accepted online at www.giveforward.com/fundraiser /p982/babyalvin .The patrons of the Hurricane Hole have clearly demonstrated the generosity that Key West has become known for in times of need. The staff, management and ownership of the Hurricane Hole are extremely grateful to everyone who participated and volunteered to make these two events a giant success. Matthew McKnight, Matt Moline Hurricane Hole, Conch Shack Stock IslandMarjorie Mearns gone at age 74Longtime Marathon resident, community activist and former City Council member Marjie Mearns died Wednesday at the age of 74. She was heavily involved in the Middle Keys community, but was perhaps best known for her work as an advocate for Pigeon Key, a small island offshore of Marathon that housed workers in the early 1900s when Henry Flagler built the Florida East Coast Railway. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. Mearns was a longtime member of the nonprofit Pigeon Key Foundation board of directors, and even filled in for a short time as executive director of the island. More recently, Mearns was the driving force behind the ongoing community effort to save the iconic 2.2-mile Old Seven Mile Bridge leading to Pigeon Key. She was unbelievable. Im very involved with Pigeon Key and the Seven Mile Bridge. She started all that years ago. She gave us a ton of information she had collected...and we wouldnt be where we are now without it. She was very instrumental in getting the whole thing going, Pigeon Key Foundation board member Riett Steinmetz said. In March 2011, she helped start www.saveoldseven.org, an online petition website that later morphed into the nonprofit group Friends of Old Seven. The group is trying to help secure funding for an expensive refurbishing of the bridge. Mearns was also a member of the Marathon City Council from 2005 to 2007, following her son Randy, a former mayor, on the dais. She was also a longtime Guidance Clinic of the Middle Keys-now Guidance Care Centerboard member and was active with the Marathon Volunteer Fire Department as was Randy, a former Volunteer Fire Chief. Mearns had a number of interests outside of city business and community activism as well. She was a longtime member-as a baritone-of Island Harmony, the well-known Middle Keys barber shop singing group. Aphysical education teacher in Pennsylvania prior to moving to the Keys, Mearns was also an avid tennis player and coached numerous sports. She even helped then-Marathon High Principal Kay Gradick establish girls sports at the school when the Mearns family moved to the Keys in 1968. Mike Puto was a teacher at the school during that time and has known Mearns for more than 40 years. He was city manager during Mearnstwo years on the dais and the two served on the Pigeon Key board together. She was really a neat lady, and to me was like a second mom. She was helpful to me when I was on the [Monroe County Commission] and then when I became city manager. She was a guiding light. She went through a lot with her cancer, but she was a fighter, he said. Randy says Mearns and her husband, Frank, came to the Keys intending to purchase a Grassy Key marina. It fell through [and] they eventually bought the King Sail Motel and owned that for 12 years, he said. Randy said Marjie was diagnosed with kidney cancer and had surgery, but that it later returned and spread through her body. She lived longer than doctors said she would have. She was comfortable and didnt have a lot of suffering, Mearns said. She will be missed. She did a lot of good things for this community. The Mearns family is planning a celebration of life on June 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Kirk of the Keys. Agathering of family and friends at Tarpon Creek Bar & Grill behind the Holiday Inn Express in Marathon will follow.Community activist served two years on city councilBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON MEARNS NEWS BRIEFSIndian Fill cleanup set for May 18Aclean-up day for Tea Table, Lignumvitae and Indian Key Fill is scheduled for Saturday, May 18 beginning at 9 a.m. The Islamorada branch of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office is coordinating with the Islamorada Public Works Department and Solid Waste provider to remove all trash collected during the clean-up.

Fishermens Community Hospital announced employee award winners for the first quarter of 2013. Isabel Yerena was named Outstanding Employee. Consistently praised by patients for her excellent customer service skills, Yerena works in the Business Office in the Admitting and ER Registration areas. Agraduate of Marathon High School, she resides in Marathon and has been with the hospital since 2011. Nurse of the Quarter honors went to Linda Ardire, of the Intensive Care Unit. Ardire also fills in as a supervisor and serves as a BLS and ACLS instructor. The Key Colony Beach resident is described by coworkers as being a nurse advocate, a patient teacher and a real asset to both patients and nurses. Larry Wise, Director of Diagnostic Imaging, was named Manager of the Quarter. Lauded for creating a user-friendly workplace and patient environment, the longtime Marathon resident, started with Fishermens in 1995. Wise has overseen the implementation of the new digital mammography equipment as well as the fulltime operation of MRI testing. He received an Associate of Science degree in Radiology from Indian River Community College in Fort Pierce, FL. Nominated by co-workers as well as by patients, all three were honored at an ice cream social held for all employees April 30. Florida appears to be moving up the ranks of states judged welcoming to business development.Chief Executive Magazine announced that Florida is now ranked number two in the nation to do business, edging closer to knocking off the top spot leader, Texas. More than 730 CEOs from across the U.S. voted in the survey the highest response on record. The survey asked CEOs to rank the best states for business based on a wide range of criteria, from taxation and regulation to workforce quality and living environment. CEOs from around the nation recognize ITS WORKING in Florida. We have cut business regulations, kept taxes low, we have no state income tax and weve paid down state debt, said Governor Rick Scott. CEOs have also taken notice of our superior living environment, noting our education quality, affordability of real estate and excellent transportation system.The survey gave Florida high marks in all areas. According to CEOs, Florida now beats Texas in living environment and is closing the gap in taxation and regulation. The article noted: Governor Rick Scott has made it his priority to streamline state government, reducing 2,300 needless regulations and 12,000 government positions...Scott cut property taxes by more than $210 million and eliminated the state tax for 63 percent of the businesses that paid it when he was elected.Floridas economy continues to grow. The states unemployment rate has dropped by more than three percentage points from two years ago the second biggest drop in the country. Floridas unemployment rate, now below the national average, is at its lowest point since October 2008. In addition, the Sunshine States businesses have created more than 320,000 new private-sector jobs in the last two years, according to state officials.Other recent rankings for the Sunshine state include:Fast Company, the worlds leading progressive business media brand, named Florida the No. 1 state for innovation in its May 2013 magazine.

Real estate development is an arduous process in the Florida Keys, but a pair of large-scale hotel properties in Marathon are inching their way closer to fruition. Developers of the long awaited 125-room Hyatt hotel at the Faro Blanco property, and a proposed 95room Courtyard by Marriott, both in Old Town, are on the verge of pulling building permits that would allow them to begin constructing much anticipated additions to the Middle Keys economy. Meanwhile, construction is ongoing at Pritam Singhs Tranquility Bay Resort, where the developer is adding 16 one-bedroom units to his 87-unit hotel.All three properties, along with Bonefish Bay Motel near Key Colony Beach, were recipients of new hotel room allocations doled out by the city in January. Marathon was awarded a pool of 100 units by the state Cabinet last year in recognition of its progress in completing a central sewer system. Key West-based Spottswood Cos. has long planned a Faro Blanco reboot, but a down economy postponed construction for several years. The company put plans on hold again when Marathon was awarded the new units in order to apply for a portion.Roger Masters and his partner, Prime Hospitality Group, also held out for a share of those new allocations for their Marriott property. The city awarded 65 units on Jan. 22, with Spottswood receiving 25, Masters 19, Singh 16. The 20-unit Bonefish Bay Motel near Key Colony Beach received five units. City Planner Karl Bursa told the Keynoter that Spottswood and Masters have applied for building permits and that each is in discussions with the city regarding final details. The applicants must begin construction within 90 days of when they actually get their permits and they have to complete construction within 18 months of commencement in order to retain their transient rental units, he said. Masters said that local company Discount Rock and Sand has already begun dumping and compacting fill on the hotel site. Spottswood Cos. Vice President Bill Spottswood said he expects to demolish the old Halls Diving Center and Panchos restaurant buildings on their site in the near future. We anticipate filing our building permits shortly thereafter, he said. KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,May 11,2013 Christopher D.

Since its inception in 2010, UTM has been challenging the tenets of a threeyear contract that, among other points of contention, mandated seven unpaid furlough days for all staff.That process culminated last month with the School Board officially acknowledging an impasse, meaning the furloughs stand and UTMs grievances wont be redressed.I know we kind of came to an abrupt end, so to speak, for the last round, Porter opened. I know that was a very difficult and challenging evening. Hopefully we can move ahead from that.With that he proposed the two sides operate under whats called interest-based bargaining, and even handed out a three-decades old management text, Getting to Yes, that describes the process.Its really the interests of both sides youre trying to satisfy, Porter said. One of the things that will happen, and if it works it works well...we will end up with an agreement or a solution that neither one of us even thought about coming into this session. Hidden behind interests are the positions. Therere certain solutions we think are better than others.Noticeably absent from the session was former Superintendent Jesus Jaras lead negotiator, Bob Norton, a highly paid labor attorney whose past negotiations with UTM bordered on a kind of sport once labeled bear baiting.UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said removing Norton from the process would help improve teacher morale. Central to the negotiations underway in Monroe County is a legislative mandate that all Florida districts base teacher pay on evaluations. That mandate, which begins in 2014, requires in large part consideration of student scores on standardized tests. Different methodologies are being tried in the 67 districts around Florida and virtually none have proved satisfactory to all stakeholders: teachers, unions, administrators and state lawmakers. This week Gov. Rick Scott has toured the state touting a $480 million legislative earmark for teacher raises that he initially proposed be treated as an acrossthe-board $2,500 raise. The House and Senate tweaked that so its now tied to performance evaluations and includes a broader scope of employees, such as guidance counselors and other non-classroom professionals. The evaluation piece is huge and is going to take us a great amount of time, Hummell-Gorman said.

Home to the Conchs football team, boys and girls soccer teams and commencement ceremonies the stadium, which seats about 3,000, was built in 1955 and, in the past decade, most notably since 2005s Hurricane Wilma, has been in steady decline. Supports and fasteners for the aluminum bleachers are corroded, the lights are substandard, the dressing rooms are mold-infested, the lightning-susceptible scoreboard is in a continual state of partial malfunction and the field, which sat under saltwater after the hurricane, has a patchiness and unevenness that a fresh mowing cant hide. It is definitely outdated from too much wear and tear, and needs a face-lift, said Ralph Henriquez, the former Conch baseball coach and athletic director who knows the facility as well as anyone. He recalled, When I was 6 or 7 my dad took me to football games there. There were bleachers on both sides then, so there would be 4,000 people. It was amazing. Face-lifts, though, are costly, and the Monroe County School District is financially strapped. This month, however, repairs are being done on the bleachers, giving them a temporary missing-teeth look. The work needs to be completed in time for the spring football game May 24. Bit by bit its getting fixed up, Jeff Barrow, the districts assistant director for facilities and construction, said of the stadium, adding that a large renovation is planned for 2017-18. As important as high school sports are to the community, you dont want to spend all your money on athletics its a careful balance, Barrow said. He added that safety issues at the stadium, such as the condition of the bleachers and locker rooms, are paramount, and improved lights are more of a preference-type issue. The stadium, which has a red and gray motif, holds two locker rooms, two restrooms (in good condition), two concession stands, two ticket booths, a press box and a Gatorade machine. Its football field is also the outfield for the adjoining Rex Weech baseball field, which borders Glynn R. Archer Jr. Drive. The locker rooms have been uninhabitable sinceNext window for renovations not until 2017-18By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WESTA closeup shows the corrosion in the bleachers of the 58-year-old stadium.

Thats not going to be easy, said Coral Shores Athletic Director Rich Russell. There are some very good teams coming into the district. New sport-district alignments confirmed by the Florida High School Athletic Association certainly make life more crowded for most Coral Shores programs. State districts that previously have numbered four or five teams have grown to seven or eight.In boysbasketball, District 16-4Aalready included current champion Gulliver Prep and runner-up Key West. Joining the expanded league are 15-4A winner Ransom Everglades, which reached the state semifinals, and Florida Christian, a district winner moving up from 3A. Coral Shores is coming off a 7-12 season. The rebuilding Hurricane girls basketball program already had pulled out of state district play for the next winter season. Coral Shoresfootball Hurricanes have been out of state district contention for two years, opting to compete in the Southeastern Football Conference against South Florida programs of similar ability. The Cane boys soccer District 16-2Agrows to seven teams, topped by defending champ Gulliver. Actually, I think well do pretty well, said Coral Shores coach Jorge Bosque. Weve normally played most of these teams and been competitive. If our guys put in the [off-season] time, we have a shot at reaching the district championship game. Districts for the Spring 2014 sports have not been finalized but are expected to grow as well.

Anton will not be rehired for the coming season, athletic director Neda Preston wrote without elaboration in an e-mail Thursday. Later Thursday, Lopez said, Im just very upset with the decision. I think it was a personal thing. The move results in a third coaching vacancy at the school a softball coach and a boys soccer coach are also needed. In 2011, Lopez took over a long-struggling program the Conchs were 58-80 in the previous six years under Paul Davis and coached Key West to a 16-1 season, the only loss coming in the regional semifinals. That team was the schools best in a decade and attracted big crowds to the Bobby Menendez Gym. With returning stars Anthony Rice and JeQuan Lopez (the coachs son), hopes were high again last summer until Sept. 12, when the two players were charged with stealing electronics from marching-band members. Both were suspended until January, when they were reinstated by schools superintendent Mark Porter. The 6foot-5 Rice, a junior, then led the Conchs to four victories before being suspended again. Lopez, who was arrested in a domestic altercation shortly after being reinstated, never played in his senior season. The Conchs, who defeated state champion Pinecrest late in the season, made the playoffs again but fell, 90-49, to Ransom Everglades in the regional quarterfinals. They finished the 2012-13 season 10-10 to give Anton Lopez a two-year record of 26-11.Finished with 26-11 win, loss recordBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALLLowers Keys Dolphin tourney kicks offAnglers can compete for more than $35,000 in cash and prizes during the Original Big Pine and Lower Keys Dolphin Tournament, now in its 20th year.

Wilma, said girls soccer coach Scott Paul. I wont take my girls in there. (The Conchs and visiting football teams, however, use them.) They are so antiquated, agreed former Conch and New York Mets pitcher Randy Sterling, the recreation manager for the citys Department of Community Services. Theyre the same as they were when I graduated [in 1969].In April 1988, the stadium was named for an inspiring Conch football player, coach and principal shortly after he died, at 42, of a heart attack suffered following a day of painting chairs for the school auditorium. A plaque bearing Tommy Robertslikeness sits atop a stone monument at the stadiums entrance, so worn as to be barely readable. Judd Wise, who has been a Conch athlete, coach and athletic director, paused for a moment when asked about a stadium hes been familiar with for 30 of its 58 years. Maybe its best to knock it down and start from scratch, he said. Unfortunately, the school district is in a financial bind. Its a tough situation.

The roots for both of those controversies can be traced back to the earliest days of the Cold War with Russia and passage of the National Security Act, which President Harry Truman pushed through a sometimes reluctant Congress back in 1947.Its been called one of the most important pieces of Cold War legislation, establishing much of the framework for American foreign policymaking for the next four decades of the Cold War.The ramifications of the National Security Act will be the backdrop for this years Truman Legacy Symposium on National Security, which is scheduled May 17-18 in Key West.Scholars, members of Congress, historians, journalists and the head of the Harry S Truman Presidential Library will be attending.Areception at the Little White House in Key West kicks off the symposium on Friday, May 17, starting at 6 p.m. Robert Wolz, executive director of the Little White House, and Clifton Truman Daniel, eldest grandson of President Truman, will open the conference. Congressman Ike Skelton, former chair of the House Armed Services Committee, will give the opening address that same evening. Michael J. Hogan, author of ACross of Iron, published in 2000 is the leadoff speaker for this years conference, which will be held at the Key West Marriott Beachside Resort. The University of Illinois professor and historian writes that President Harry S Truman and his successor were in the middle of a fundamental contest over the nations political identity and postwar purpose, and their efforts determined the size and shape of the national security state that finally emerged.Hell share the podium at 9:15 a.m. Saturday, May 18, with Mary Ann Heiss, a professor at Kent State University. They open with Harry S. Truman and the National Security State: An Introduction to the Conference.Hogans Cross of Iron history explored the process of state-making through struggles to unify the armed forces, harness science to military purposes, mobilize military manpower, control the defense budget and distribute the cost of defense across the economy.Symposium registration costs $125 per person.

Nance Frank, gallery director, was a longtime friend of Harvey and is organizing the estate sale from the Grande Dames collection, some of it dating back to the 1930s. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 11, visitors to the gallery, 606 Greene St., Key West, can see works by William Hoffman, one of the first WPAartists to come to Key West.Hoffman, who studied at the prestigious Art Students League of New York, as well as in Munich and Paris, painted murals in the Carnegie Library in Savannah.Harvey had three of his works in her collection, which will be for sale along with others that cover a 60year period. Frank notes that Harvey persuaded Hoffman and his wife, Julia, to come back to Key West. Julia, it turns out, was a childhood friend of Harvey, who grew up in Key West during the teens and 20s, when streets were packed shell surfaces and horse-drawn carriages were still common. Hoffman, one of 14 WPA artists who came and captured images of Key West in the 1930s, is famous for his murals, which graced the walls in the Glynn Archer auditorium, which was at the time Key West High. The school will be converted to Key West City Hall over the next two years, after the last students graduate there at the end of May and ownership transfers from the school district to the City of Key West.Harvey got her first taste of the arts acting in a 1935 WPAproduction of the Pirates of Penzance, according to Frank, who has written about Key West history and artist Mario Sanchez.She loved, supported and collected art all herGallery hosting Saturday show 11 a.m.4 p.m.Aspecial gift idea for Mothers Day KW artist has painted pots in mindSee Art,6B

The spot was 80 feet deep at the bottom of the ledge, 35 feet in depth at the top and was created by tidal flow and storms that chiseled away at the hard bottom for thousands of years. Conditions were perfect with the tide and wind, although the clarity of the water was much clearer than I wanted but all in all the confidence was building. Taking time to allow the chum to work gave us a chance to admire the beauty of the Dry Tortugas with both Loggerhead Key Lighthouse and Fort Jefferson in plain view. Striking and isolated were the words used at that moment. As I looked into the water behind our charter vessel Premium Time, I saw the distinct colors of what looked like nice-sized mangrove snappers just at the edge of distinction mingling in the mix.I grabbed one of the 15-lb. outfits we normally use for yellowtail and sent down a ballyhoo plug slightly weighted with a split shot. At 50 feet, the bait was inhaled and the rod was handed off to my client Tom. He was a bit surprised by the bend in the rod, which made me smile. I was then surprised by how quickly the fish smoked him into the reef. That wasnt supposed to happen. Handing him another ballyhoo plug baited outfit he knew what to do. At about 40 feet, the same situation played out. Eat it and Beat it is the way we fondly refer to hot fish. Another one that was unstoppable with the light stuff. As I looked at Toms defeated gaze, I glanced over the transom and saw the problem. The fish we were seeing were not mangrove snapper. These fish had moved even higher and closer to the boat allowing a good clean view of large mutton snapper. I just assumed the school was all mangrove snapper on the July spawn. This was in fact a mutton spawn in July. Alate one. Grabbing the 20-lb outfits with 50-lb leaders and plugs of ballyhoo pushed the needle into a Mad Dog mutton snapper slam fest. Tom and his son Mitch were engaged in the mutton battles for over two hours straight sweating, swearing and smiling all at the same time. We made the decision to keep only half of the legal daily limit of ten. Conservative maybe, but freezing fish is not our style generally. Fresh is best. The trip was made. Mutton snapper are getting ready to spawn in the next few months during the full moon and are also a hot topic in the regulation game. Word has it that areas are in proposal to be closed during the mutton spawn much to the dismay of many. Closed areas are tough when you are dealing with free creatures that can swim anywhere they want. Bag limits work best and although 10 mutton snapper can be kept per person, we set our limits at 5 or less. Three tips for catching mutton snapper: 1. Go Big or Go Home On many occasions we have caught large muttons with baits meant for sharks on wire. Doesnt seem to matter as long as there is enough bait to make it worth their while. On a 20-lb test outfit with 50-lb test leader, use a two finger wide hand length strip of bonita, kingfish or spanish mackerel. Either use a one-ounce jig head, or freeline to the bottom working much like you would for yellowtail snapper making sure to let the fish eat long enough as the line pulls freely from the spool. Dont be afraid to pitch the bait far into the chum slick. 2. The Ballyhoo Flutter The same outfit is used with a minimal split shot and a 6/0 circle hook. Cut off the tail and head of a mid-size ballyhoo and remove the air sack. Freeline the ballyhoo the same as you would for yellowtail. The cut ballyhoo looks like the pieces from an assault by something toothy fluttering down. Mutton snapper are as much scavenger as they are predator, maybe more. They eat when they can. 3. Live Bait Long Leader Take 15 to 20 feet of fluorocarbon leader with a midsize 6/0 circle hook attached to a barrel swivel and then tied to the 20-lb test, adding a minimum of 6 oz. weight above the swivel (depending on current or drift). Use a live, palm-sized pinfish, pilchard or threadfin herring. Work the sand next to structure. Mutton snapper love the beach next to the rock or wreck.
