Key West City Commissioner Tony Yaniz wants to put to bed a debate over whether the intent of a 2007 referendum was to convey four acres of cityowned land to a developer of an assisted-living facility for $1 per year. Voters passed the referendum, approving a concept that would allow the Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition, in partnership with a development company, to lease Truman Waterfront property and build a mixed independent/assisted-living building for seniors. The referendum language didnt mention the price but the Assisted Care Coalition has insisted for years that without the token rate, the project would not be financially feasible. That talking point has been renewed as of late because a June 28 deadline for a development plan is rapidly approaching.Negotiations between the city and Wendover Housing Partners LLC hinge on the dollar value of the lease, with the latest iteration considering a one-time upfront payment to the city of $500,000 followed by annual payments in the $10,000 range.City Attorney Shawn Smith has long maintained that the $1 per year rate was never on the table. Seeking clarity on the cost issue, Yaniz is sponsoring a resolution that, if approved twice by commissioners, would put the matter back out to referendum on the Oct. 1 ballot. That went to first reading at a meeting that took place after press time on Tuesday.Yanizs proposed referendum language: To encourage housing for senior citizens, shall [the commission] be authorized to lease real property of approximately 3.32 acres at the Truman Waterfront to Wendover Housing Partners LLC for a period of 99 years at the rate of $1 per year for exclusive use as a mixed-income senior citizens assisted living and independent living facility?Wendover is the Assisted Care Coalitions developer for the 110-unit building. The goal is to ascertain if it is truly the intent of voters to provide a dollar-per-year lease.Yaniz said that if put to the voters, he thinks 80 percent will reject the concept. I am not going to support giving away the most valuable real estate in the city of Key West. The U.S. Navy ceded the 33-acre Truman Waterfront, at the end of Southard Street, to the city in 2002 as an economic development conveyance.within the past couple of days. It was the most beautiful conditions you could ever imagine except for light rain, he said. Just pond-calm water. Visibility has been great; its just raining. Thats one of the situations thats been difficult. He said customers come in saying things like I cant believe youre making us go out in these conditions and people think its going to be miserable. Dont be deterred from the rain, he said. Youre going to get wet anyway. Your crews will advise you of the weather. People not comfortable, we let out, but the people that dont mind have had an amazing time. So how does the rest of this week shape up? More rain, and lots of it, according to the Weather Service. Attractions like Fury [sunset cruises in Key West], were farmers, President Scott Saunders said. When theres great weather, we do great. For us, its our busiest time, so its the worst time for us to have this type of weather. Our boats have been tied to the dock, he said. Were running very small amounts of tours. If you think theres going to be lightning, on the side of caution, you dont go. If we see the potential for lightning or a squall to come through, its not worth it.

WKYZ Florida KeysPirateRadioKeyWest.com 96.7 FM 101.7 FM Keys News on the half-hour Daily (M-F) News Director Don Riggs M or nings 7:30 8:30 9:30 A f t er no ons 4:30 5:30 FIU likely still a keys shelterMonroe County residents must evacuate in the face of a fearsome storm this summer, there will be an open hurricane shelter waiting for them, Monroe County officials pledge. We will make sure our folks have some place to go, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said this week. Well be fine. Florida International University in Miami, Monroe Countys designated evacuation destination for two decades, partially withdrew its welcome mat when a 20-year agreement recently expired. FIUs Recreation Center remains the relocation center for Monroes specialneeds patients, like those needing regular medical attention. However, FIU administrators no longer want to be responsible for housing an uncertain number of general evacuation Keys residents who have nowhere else to go. The universitys student population has doubled from just over 20,000 students [in 1992] to approximately 50,000 today, FIU Senior Vice President Kenneth Jessell said in a prepared statement. The Primera Casa building, where Monroe residents have been evacuated to in the past, today has very little resemblance to the building of 20 years ago, Jessell said. Primera Casa has classrooms, administrative offices, faculty offices and labs that are used extensively seven days a week. County officials point out that under state law, an executive order from the governors office can require any state-owned buildings like those on a public university campus to accept people in a storm evacuation. If a Category 3 or stronger hurricane triggers a mandatory evacuation for Keys residents during the hurricane season that started June 1, Monroes mainland shelter site most likely will be there at FIU, Gastesi said. The last mandatory evacuation for Keys residents apparently was issued for Hurricane Wilma in 2005 the third evacuation call in the Keys during that remarkably busy season. Tourist evacuations have been ordered since two were called in 2008, and a recommendation for visitors to leave was made in October. Amandatory evacuation for residents declares that a major storm landfall is likely, bringing with it the threat of injury or death. No local emergency services will be provided during a major storm so those who remain will be on their own. However, no one forces people to leave their homes, and it takes a dire threat to get many Keys residents on the road to the mainland. We do not have a good evacuation record, county Emergency Management Director Irene Toner said Tuesday. Maybe as few as 10 percent [of permanent residents] will leave. And of those, most travel to stay with friends or relatives, or look for a motel. Gastesi said he understands FIUs reluctance to serve as the primary evacuation site. We appreciate that FIU has morphed into something different than it was, he said. They think its time for us to find another place, but we cant do it overnight. Toner said for the long term, the county needs a secure facility capable of safely housing perhaps 3,000 people for a day or two. Weve looked at other places but its not as easy. It takes time, Toner said. There are a lot of things to consider, and not everybody wants Monroe County to shelter there. Any new shelter must be reasonably large, meet safety standards and be very close to the Florida Turnpike. It has to be easy to find even for people who never leave the Keys, she said. We dont want people who are already are under stress to get lost while theyre going to the shelter. If any change in shelter location is made this year, Toner said, there will be major public information and published directions. Gastesi said talks with FIU and other state facilities continue in an effort to find a building less central to the organizations needs than FIUs Primera Casa, which lies in the middle of the campus. The effort eventually could mean using Monroe County money to help fund construction of a mainland school gymnasium or community center that agrees to serve as a Monroe emergency shelter, he said. We hope we dont have to incur that kind of cost but its something to look at on the list of possible solutions, Gastesi said. We will figure something out.But expansion of university to change thatHURRICANE SEASONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Take Stock graduates 50The 50 graduates in Monroe Countys Take Stock in Children program received their diplomas in a Saturday ceremony at Marathon High School. All 487 graduates from the three public Florida Keys high schools will participate in commencement ceremonies today, Thursday and Friday. Take Stock, a mentoring and scholarship program, in its 13th year locally. The students sign contracts in seventh grade. In exchange for maintaining good grades, staying drugand alcohol-free and participating in community service, they get full four-year college scholarships to any state school. John Padget, a member of the state Board of Education and president of the Monroe County Education Foundation, valued the 2013 scholarships, paid for through long-term investments, at $1,716,000. Padget lauded the percentage of Take Stock graduates compared to the overall graduating class. In Monroe, 10.3 percent of graduates will receive the coveted scholarships. Other counties have a fraction of 1 percent finishing the program, he said. While the Take Stock scholarships are awarded based on need, Padget said that about half the 50 students also are receiving Bright Futures scholarships, which are meritbased. With the two scholarships, Itll pick up room and board, books and even travel. They can get a bachelors degree without any student debt. Thats important, as national student debt approaches the $1 trillion mark and federal lawmakers are trying to tackle how to relieve the burden on a demographic that is struggling to transition into the workforce. Gov. Rick Scott in February reappointed Padget, a former appointed superintendent of Monroe County schools, to the state Board of Education for a second four-year term. In May, Padgets fellow board members elected him vice chairman.Scholarships mean virtually no student debtMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comDistrict, union talk furloughsKeys schools Superintendent Mark Porter sat down with a team from the United Teachers of Monroe union last week to discuss so-called transition issues, including controversial unpaid seven-day mandatory teacher furloughs. Porter said its too early in the collective bargaining process to comment on whether the furlough program would be scaled back for the 2013-14 school year. The seven furlough days, instituted by thenSuperintendent Joseph Burke in 2010, equate to a budget savings of $1.2 million, or $171,428 per day. Porter said its still a little too early to make any decisions or statements about rolling back the furlough days. I am optimistic, he said, that our overall financial condition ... will allow us to consider a modification of this issue. [I] will know more in the next couple of weeks. In addition to the furlough days, other issues to be negotiated in a new contract are supplemental pay for teachers who coach sports teams or sponsor clubs, coming to $400,000; a change in the insurance plan and contribution responsibility, saving the district $1.3 million; and getting rid of a line item paying the UTM presidents salary at $45,000 per year. Holly Hummell-Gorman is the current president. At stake is $2,945,000 in savings the district has relied on for two budgetary cycles, which begin with the fiscal year on July 1. Its typical for a contract to be negotiated through and even well past the beginning of the fiscal year. Porter said the issues will continue to be a topic of discussion in an effort to better define our true starting point. It appears that some of the items will be easily resolved while others will be somewhat more problematic. Hummell-Gorman called the issues kind of nebulous issues that I believe this group needs to work through prior to moving on to the new contract.Negotiations are still in early stagesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSTruman lease could go to voteYaniz:Dollar per year is far too lowBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTRains to continue this weekFrom Weather,1A DOYON Carol Doyon 57, of Key Largo, FL, passed away May 6, 2013.

D Bouncers busted in beatingTwo overzealous Duval Street bouncers were arrested after they allegedly pushed a customer down a flight of stairs, breaking the mans leg. Aldo Parrado and Yoandry Noa-Vega, both of whom work security at key Wests Fat Tuesdays bar at 305 Duval, were arrested Friday around 1 a.m. Parrado, 29, is charged with misdemeanor battery and felony possession of cocaine. Noa-Vega, 34, is charged with misdemeanor battery. Justin Strobel, 32 of Orlando, told Officer Scott Warmington the incident started when he slipped on a spilled drink inside the bar, according to a police report, prompting NoaVega to push him out of the bar. Strobel told me he approached Noa-Vega at the top of the stairs and asked him why he was forcefully removed from the bar, Warmington wrote. Strobel told me [Parrado] jumped over the bar and pushed him down the stairs with great force. Three witnesses told police that after Strobel was on the ground with a broken leg, the two bouncers continued to punch him the face and choked him with two hands.Warmington reviewed video of the incident with the Fat Tuesday manager who, according to the reports, said, Stupid, stupid. Those guys know better.Noa-Vega told police he through Strobel was causing a scene and had to be removed from the bar. On a search incident to arrest, police found half a gram of cocaine in a plastic bag in Parrados pocket, Warmington wrote.Fat Tuesday's customer has leg brokenBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTNEXT GENERATION PARRADO NOA-VEGA Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNMonroe County Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin (left) and Jay Bollenbacher,a customer relations manager for Dominion Voting in McKinney,Texas,show off what could be the next generation of voting machines for Monroe County.The county now uses AccuVote machines,but Griffin says they're 20 years old and need to be replaced.The Dominion machines are state of the art,including game-like consoles to help the disabled vote.Williams plea talks failAfraud case against a former Upper Keys vacation rental agent will be put on the August Circuit Court trial docket at the Plantation Key Government Center after talks on a plea agreement bogged down. John D. Williams, 53, attended a Tuesday hearing before Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia but remained in the witness box with other defendants. Clad in a blue jail jumpsuit, Williams did not speak in court. Defense attorney Nicholas Mulick said two of the 35 current charges against Williams lack sufficient facts to be proven in court. I cant in good faith recommend a plea agreement to those charges when I dont see the evidence, Mulick said outside the courtroom. Were not conceding anything. He declined to say which of the charges the defense contests. Talks on a possible plea agreement will continue before the August trial date. Williams, charged with running a 2011 scheme that defrauded visitors who made full payments or deposits for vacationrental stays in private homes, has been held in the Monroe County jail with no bond allowed since his October 2011 arrest. Williams once faced nearly 200 individual counts but the case has been consolidated into the 35 counts being prosecuted. Those include 25 counts of grand theft, running an organized scheme to defraud resulting in a loss of more than $50,000, and counts of using fraudulent personal identification to commit fraud. Demetrios Efstratiou is prosecuting the case for the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. In the summer of 2011, Williams reportedly set up online vacation-rental sites like Tropical Resort Vacation Home Rentals and Keys Dreams that offered luxurious waterfront properties for shortterm stays. He is accused of intentionally booking Upper Keys properties that he did not represent, then canceling stays at the last minute. He reportedly used false names when telling vacationers the properties had been accidentally overbooked, suddenly sold or suffered serious damage. Mulick said Williams has been able to borrow money to repay several victims, and will continue to make restitution.Trial planned for suspect in fraud caseIN THE COURTS By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgPribramsky: HOB dollars seem to be on trackMonroe County School Board discussion of the $41 million rebuild of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West had made a 180degree turn, with outside auditor Steve Pribramskys first report on the projects financials. Since his election in November, board member Ed Davidson, along with Audit and Finance Committee member Stuart Kessler, have pressed contractor Coastal Construction for documentation and explanations of what has been characterized as shoddy record-keeping and lack of cooperation. At the boards May 26 meeting at Marathon High School, Pribramsky said Coastals explanations seem reasonable. We just need to do the math. More than 83 change orders associated with the three-year rebuild have driven Davidsons criticism, particularly a contract clause that splits any savings in the construction 60 percent/40 percent between the district and Coastal. That prompted Superintendent Mark Porter to hire Pribramsky, a former District 1 School Board member, to perform whats called attestation services costing around $15,000. Pribramsky told the board that his staff has reviewed total additive change orders of $9 million, offset by another $7 million in deductive change orders. Davidson continued his ongoing complaints that Coastal has not been very forthcoming with construction records. Pribramsky countered that in my experience, Coastal has been very cooperative. Pribramsky suggested he was having more difficulty procuring records that are maintained by the School District. There are quite a bit of documents that reside somewhere in the district, Pribramsky said. Weve been trying to pull those together. For now, Pribramsky said, Weve at least had a chance to verify the math and look at the documents to make sure what they are claiming as a credit is in fact a credit. I remain confident that the HOB construction project will, in the end, be properly identified as essentially on time and on budget, Porter said. As for the records: They were hard to review and evaluate as they came from several sources and were not topically or chronologically well organized. Records management and timely production of records is an area where the MCSD can definitely improve.Initial look at books shows no malfeasanceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSunday Miami Herald report, six of 18 companies approved for takeouts between 2007 and 2011 have failed and cost taxpayers $400 million.Meanwhile, local nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe on Friday announced its top-ranked firms for what it hopes will be a long-term solution to the Keyslongrunning battle over windstorm insurance rates. Citizens agreed to foot the bill for a $485,000 study examining risk engineering, a building survey and natural catastrophe risk analyses for Monroe County. According to FIRM, South Carolina-based Applied Research Associates Inc. was the top-ranked firm to conduct risk engineering, while Marathon-based Solaria Design & Consulting will perform on-the-ground inspections of Keys homes to verify the prevalence of wind-mitigating features in our building. Aon Benfield, a subsidiary of global risk management firm Aon PLC, was chosen to conduct the natural catastrophe risk analysis. We just started negotiating contracts with the companies first ranked. Its entirely possible well have to use second-, thirdor fourth-ranked companies. Before next hurricane season, we should know what our options are going to be, FIRM President Heather Carruthers said. In the meantime, she said its too early for Keys residents to be concerned with takeout companies brought in by Citizens. Probably a lot are not well capitalized to start with and theyre using data we dont think are correct, she said. Carruthers said depending on the results of the study and how Citizens responds, options include creating a Keys-specific mutual or reciprocal insurance company, or possibly remaining with Citizens if it agrees to dramatically reduce rates.Carruthers: Not so fastFrom Insurance,1A

However the Keynoters May 18 editorial, Finally, an end to the No Name electricity fight, inaccurately portrayed solar proponent Alicia Putney as an obstructionist because she asked for existing landuse laws to be followed throughout Monroe County, including on No Name Key. Last Stand believes the media has an obligation to verify the accuracy of statements before publishing them. Apparently that didnt happen with much of the May 18 editorial, as it contained factual errors and repeated baseless rumors. In fact, Putney has never contended the island was designed as a solar community. She has stated that a solar community evolved on No Name Key. In fact, Putney was not the main lone voice against allowing commercial power on No Name Key. As president of the Solar Community of No Name Key, Putney was the designated spokesperson for the organization at public meetings. Over the years, other citizens Keyswide have spoken many times in favor of solar power and alternative energy. In fact, Putney did not initiate the litigation on No Name Key. Monroe County did. The Solar Community of No Name Key and Putney fought on the same side as Monroe County, and they lost in the courts along with Monroe County. Members of our community who invest time to become familiar with our land-use laws and environmental regulations and speak at public meetings deserve our support. They should not be pilloried in the pages of the Keynoter. As Americans, we are all diminished when disagreements over local issues shift to personal attacks. The Keys community expects higher standards from local media.Mark Songer, secretary Last Stand Key WestRight-size Cat FundFor far too long, Florida has been only one costly storm away from financial catastrophe, with homeowners, businesses, charities, churches and automobile policyholders paying heavy hurricane tax assessments from past hurricanes. We also face the risk of crippling new taxes in the future, which would be triggered by both Citizens Property Insurance Corp. and the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund. Thankfully, during this past legislative session, both chambers of the Florida Legislature approved a Florida Chamber of Commercesupported bill that will incrementally reduce the risk to the state posed by Citizens. In addition, the Florida Chamber and its allies defeated a number of unsound proposals that would have shifted financial risks from the businesses and families that incur them to other Floridians, many of lesser means. But Florida missed, for now, a golden opportunity to cut back the phantom reinsurance sold by the Cat Fund and the hurricane taxes that most Floridians will pay to prop it up after the inevitable next hurricane. This session was the right time to right-size the Cat Fund. As Insurance Consumer Advocate Robin Smith Westcott noted, the bipartisan proposal would not have raised rates. By doing nothing about the Cat Fund, the Legislature missed an opportunity to reduce the states exposure and transfer more risk to the private reinsurance market where it belongs. This means greater hurricane taxes on Floridas businesses and families when a storm does hit us. The hurricane taxes may well be the lesser of two evils. If the Cat Fund cannot raise the debt, funded by these assessments, to pay its claims, millions of policyholders may suffer. The Cat Funds own leaders, who wisely supported reform, have advised that it has little hope of financing an especially large storm or a second storm. One day, the states luck with hurricane roulette will run out. The Florida Chamber thanks the leaders who fought for prudent reform this year. This battle will continue until Floridas property market is stable, private-marketbased and a beacon for new capital and competition. Until then, in order to secure Floridas future, the Florida Chamber urges the leadership of Citizens and the Cat Fund to take all possible steps to reduce our states hurricane-tax risk. If private market capacity is available to absorb our risk, we should transfer it out of the state. In addition, the Florida Chamber supports executive-branch actions to reduce our tax burden and increase transparency. Options for change are still before us.David Hart Executive VP Florida Chamber TallahasseeStudents appreciate helpThe Marathon High School Exceptional Student Education Department would like to thank some people that have partnered with the school to assist our students in the Community Based Instructional/Work Program that teaches employment-related skills. Thank you to Monroe County Tax Collector Denise Henriquez and her office in Marathon. Mrs. Henriquez has been a great supporter of our program. Her Marathon staff, which includes Jessica Maqueira, Melissa Bitgood, Christopher Doyle, Karen Crutchfield, Samantha Dominguez, Tracey Steffens and Jacquie Lytton (at the tax office), along with the staff at the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Michelle Echeverria and JoAnn Flynn, has been extremely helpful and supportive with assisting in work-related tasks. We would also like to thank Jeanne Desautels of the Optical Shoppe and Iris Coe of the Grace Jones Day Care Center, and Marjorie Roberts and Phyllis Michaelis of Keys Area Interdenominational Resources, who have been great supporters for our program and helped provide employment-related responsibilities. These businesses have given our students the opportunities to learn career-building skills, participate in modeled employment-related tasks and gain hands-on knowledge for specific careers. We also want to thank Publix for the opportunities they give our students to work. They say it takes a village to raise a child and these agencies and businesses have been instrumental in supporting our students.Cathy Grostefon Marathon High School You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em, know when to walk away and know when to run... The Gambler, recorded in 1978 by country music artist Kenny Rogers. Perhaps its time for Homeland Security to take a lesson from the old Kenny Rogers hit and simply walk away from dreams of building an Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection processing center in the heart of Taverniers historic district. Since 2011, a Tampa-based developer has been hoping to convert the former Florida Keys Electric Cooperative building at mile marker 91.6 into a home for federal agents. The developer paid $1.4 million for the property in May 2011 with Homeland Security already lined up as the exclusive tenant. But that was before opposition to the project began to gain traction, led by members of the Tavernier community and joined by the Monroe County Historic Preservation Commission, the county Planning Commission and the County Commission. In Fridays Reporter the developers latest defeat was detailed when a state administrative law judge upheld the Planning Commissions decision last September to deny Hoover Propertiesapplication. As the commission noted in its denial, the proposed use does not fit the propertys suburban/commercial zoning. To be in compliance, the building would have to serve residents in the immediate area. Few supporters can be found for converting the old FKEC office building into a law enforcement outpost, with holding cell, to serve the needs of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection. Specific objections include Hoovers stated plans for a 6-foot-tall metal fence to secure the property, closing the vehicular entrance on U.S. 1 and creating a new entrance on Sunrise Drive (with an exit on North Sunrise Drive). It didnt help matters when company officials declined to attend the Historic Preservation Commissions meeting last December to further explain the project or answer questions. The Tavernier Historic District is the only one of its kind in unincorporated Monroe County. Opposition grew so strong last year, that U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, whose district then included the Florida Keys, sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano urging her to find another location to house her Upper Keys agents. Given the tortured history on this project, its time for Homeland Security to move on and let Hoover worry about what developers do now with their $1.4 million investment. Its not too late to follow The Gamblers advice and know when to run.Wayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

Have gun talk with kidsMost parents of young children have had the talk with them. Not that one, but the one about the privacy of your own body. If anyone tries to touch you in your private parts, tell mommy or daddy. Get away from anyone that tries to touch you or makes you feel uncomfortable. Now there is a new talk parents must have with their young child, the one about any playmate who shows you a gun. Get away from the gun immediately. Tell mommy or daddy or any adult about the gun. They need to learn what responsible gun owners know, that all guns are to be considered loaded when handling a gun. Children should not be touching guns without adult supervision. Recently there have been a number of children killed by other children who found loaded guns in their homes. Young children cant be expected to use good judgment. Apparently some adults also lack good judgment as to how to secure guns from those who would mishandle them. Not all gun owners are responsible gun owners; you must protect your child. As a parent, it is up to you to forewarn your child. Currently people are held more accountable for not putting a child in car restraints than the careless storage of a gun. E.T.

It was first listed as threatened in 1976 then elevated to the most serious endangered category in 1984 as the population plummeted, largely as a result of pesticide spraying for mosquito control and development destroying the coastal forests they call home. In an effort to expand breeding habitat, Biscayne National Park last year planted a large stand of young torchwood trees and also other key host plants on which females will deposit their eggs. Larry Williams, Florida supervisor for ecological services for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which manages endangered species and is supporting the annual Schaushunts, said teams would continue to search for more females throughout the breeding season, which typically ends around mid-June. While the find does not assure the species will survive, Williams said, The despair we felt last year has been replaced by hope.No more despairFrom Butterfly,1ACrane Point confab cancelledAroundtable discussion scheduled for Thursday to discuss all things Crane Point Hammock and Nature Center has been cancelled. Founding member Brian Schmitt reached out to state Rep. Holly Raschein (RKey Largo) last month in hopes she could broker some kind of peace between the Marathon nonprofit and outspoken critics of a planned zip-line course on the 63-acre property. I care about the issue; local folks are passionate, Raschein said. I think its important to Marathon and we need to do something to save the property. When theres a more concrete plan, well reschedule it. Raschein said she hasnt taken a stance for or against the zip line, to which many residential neighbors of the mile marker 50 property are adamantly opposed. I dont really swing either way at this point, she said. I just want to make sure the property is preserved. Schmitt said likewise. I specifically have not taken a position on the zip line because as soon as I do, Im alienated from one side or the other, he said. Its unclear what actually would have been discussed at the meeting. Crane Point board President Jeff Smith said he believed it would center on educational opportunities at Crane Point, not the zip line. Schmitt is a Florida Keys Community College board member, and Smith said the two have held discussions about possible partnerships. We have had ongoing discussions with the community college over the years ... about the possibility of utilizing Crane Point as an educational classroom, Smith said. Smith said the whole point of the zip line, in addition to being an educational experience, is to raise money to further other programs. Were open to any alternatives to provide sustainable revenues for Crane Point. We think [the zip line] fits with [our mission] and provides a revenue stream thats reliable instead of grants and solicitations weve found dry up pretty quick, he said. Critics say the zip line is not financially viable and doesnt comport with the citys laws regarding passive versus active recreational use in a conservation-native zoned area, among other complaints. But the state signed off on Planning Director George Garretts assessment that the use is passive, and the City Council agreed to secure a $727,000 state Community Development Block Grant for Crane Point. Crane Point must adhere to several conditions to make the course a reality, including a detailed management plan and complying with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. If built, the zip line is planned to be about 2,900 feet on the propertys east side, starting at the museum building and ending at the Crane house on Florida Bay.

Wednesday,June 5,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com BusinessDuring summer slowdown,take stockAttention small-business owners: Its time to get ready for the summertime slowdown. Business slows down a bit in the summer especially in the Keys as people head away to take vacations. But that doesnt mean you should flip the sign on the door to closed, pull out the bikinis and swim trunks and head to the beach until Labor Day. Here are some things most small-business owners can do this summer to set themselves up for a profitable end to the year. Grow your network. Get out of the office and meet new people. Go to a conference or networking event, and dont be afraid to start conversations. Take advantage of peoples lighter summer schedules. E-mail or call potential clients and see if they are willing to grab a coffee with you. If theres someone in your industry that you have always wanted to meet, take that person out to lunch; he or she is more likely to say yes in the summer. If you are chained to your desk, improve your digital networking. Connect with people you want to get in front of on social networking websites such as LinkedIn and Facebook. Refresh your website. Of course, if you dont have a website, its time to build one.Websites such as Weebly.com and Yola.com let you create basic websites for free. If you dont want to be bothered doing it yourself, hiring a developer to create a simple website shouldnt cost more than $1,500. For those who already have a site, make sure its simple to navigate. The address and phone number for the business should be easy to locate. And the website must be readable on mobile devices. Assess your goals. By the summer, you should know if your business is on track to reach its goals for the year. Take out the list of goals and plans you wrote down at the beginning of the year and make sure you are sticking to them, says Brian Moran, founder of Brian Moran & Associates, a consultancy that works with small-business owners.So you dont think you will meet your goals by the end of the year? Well, set up time to work on them. As part of the process, call customers and asking for feedback. Depending on what they say, you can adjust how you do business in the future to keep your customers happy and achieve your goals. Get your staff on track. Give your employees a break from daily duties, and train them one on one. Automate your business.Putting aspects of your business on autopilot can save time and money. For example, if your website lets potential customers e-mail you to ask for an estimate, set up your e-mail so that it automatically responds with a list of rates.Chances are the e-mail program youre already using allows for automation. Use the slower summer months to read your email programs instructions or watch tutorials on YouTube. You can also use the automation function to e-mail coupons or information about sales or new products. This will free up a person from having to do it manually. Get away from it all. Getting small-business owners to take a break is hard, but getting away will recharge your batteries and help you work better. Go on a trip, have a picnic or just stay home a few days and read a book that has nothing to do with your industry.Its good time to review your business planBy JOSEPH PISANIAssociated PressSMALLBUSINESS BUSINESSBRIEFSSeminar focuses on loan programsSmall-business owners and those interested in starting a business are invited to a free Small Business Administration loan seminar on June 12 at Florida Keys Community College on Stock Island.

City Attorney Shawn Smith, who proposed the ordinance in March, refers to the law as a cone of silence. Estimates for the public projects, including two park renovations, along with a new city hall, fire station and transportation depot, come in at nearly $100 million. Smith said he anticipates a great deal of lobbying and intends for the cone of silence to provide taxpayers with confidence that decisions are being made based upon facts and not determined by behind-thescenes influence. The law would apply when the city goes through requests for proposals, requests for qualifications, invitations to bid and any other competitive solicitations.The proposed wording enumerates four types of prohibited communications: Between vendors or their representatives and city staff up to and including the city manager. Between vendors and members of the Key West City Commission. Between vendors and any person serving on an evaluation or ranking committee. Between any elected official and people serving on an evaluation or ranking committee. The law would allow members of the public to communicate with vendors, city staff and/or elected officials. Written communications from vendors would be allowed as long as a copy is filed with the City Clerks Office. Smith contemplates the cone of silence applying from the time public notice of a competitive solicitation is made until the commission makes a final award. Already in place is whats called a quasi-judicial proceeding governing major development plans brought by private developers. Such hearings require anyone giving public testimony on a project to be sworn in and commissioners must disclose ex-parte communication (if theyve discussed the issue before them with principals involved).The reason: Millions in city projectsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney§@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYNelson English Park has seen a decrease in use since the playground equipment was removed earlier this year due to safety concerns.City officials have earmarked more than $1 million in capital funds to restore the park,including the former play equipment.Lots of projects on the tableThe Key West City Commission is considering a law to limit lobbying. Among the development projects it would apply to: Conversion of the 33acre Truman Waterfront into a destination park for up to $50 million. $20 million-plus retrofit of Glynn Archer Elementary School into a city hall and meeting complex. Anew transportation depot, where the city would primarily store and service its municipal fleet, off College Road on Stock Island. Estimated cost is $5 million. A$5 million fire station on the site of the former city hall, 525 Angela St. in Old Town. Between $1 million and $2 million to restore the failing Frederick Douglass Community Center and gymnasium on Olivia Street in Bahama Village.

See Jewelry,2B Menendez resigns from Conch baseballCiting a need to spend more time with his family, Miguel Menendez has stepped down with a heavy heart after eight years as Key West High Schools baseball coach. His predecessor, Ralph Henriquez, who guided the Conchs to three state titles, says he would be interested in returning to the job. The resignation, which Menendez confirmed Monday, comes five weeks after the Conchs lost to Gulliver Prep in the District 16-4Asemifinals at Rex Weech Field to complete a 12-12 season after an 11-3 start. In 2012, the Conchs were 9-14, their first losing season in 40 years. Menendezs overall record was 120-94, but he never got the program which has 11 state titles back to the Final Four. Known for his optimism and affable nature, he at times expressed displeasure with parental interference in his program. Asked if he resigned or was fired, Athletic Director Neda Preston wrote in an email, He resigned. Menendez reportedly told his players of his decision at the team banquet on May 29. He had expressed eagerness for another season after the loss to Gulliver. Principal Amber Bosco said, Miguel and I talked at the end of the season, and he decided to resign. He has put in a tremendous amount of time and dedication, and has made great connections with his players, assisting them on and off the field. Menendez, who declined to be interviewed for this story, said in a prepared statement, It is with a heavy heart that I tender my resignation. My family has made many sacrifices over the years to afford me the opportunity to pursue my passion and, although I cannot reclaim the countless hours weve spent apart, I look forward to our future. Menendez was a goodhitting catcher at Key West High in the late 1990s, went on to play at the University of Tampa and is in that schools sports hall of fame. He was an assistant coach under Henriquez and took over for him on Henriquezs recommendation after Key West won the 2005 state title. Miguel Menendez is the epitome of Key West baseball, said Bill Spottswood, a longtime supporter of Conch teams. Hes bled crimson and gray since he was a little boy. His father [Johnny] coached and his grandfather [John] was a coaching icon. He gave it his all and didnt do it for the money he put in eight years for about 10 cents an hour. As far as Im concerned, hes a hero. As the search for a new coach begins, there likely will be considerable support for Henriquez, who most recently coached at Belen Jesuit in 2010, winning coach of the year honors from the Miami Herald. His team came to Key West that season and defeated the Conchs. Ive stayed away from the [baseball] program for a long time, but my hearts always there, Henriquez, who was the Key West athletic director two years ago, said Monday. People who remember how baseball used to be here always ask me, Ralph, are you ever coming back? Would he? Yeah, I would be interested. If the school approaches me, I would be more than happy to listen. In the mid-1990s, the Conchs won back-to-back state titles under the discipline-minded Henriquez, had a 44-game winning streak and were ranked first in the country. After a fouryear absence, he returned as coach in 2001, succeeding Brooks Carey. He stepped down after winning his third title in 2005, and coached in the Atlanta Bravesand New York Yankeesorganizations.Asked if Henriquez would be a viable candidate, Bosco, the principal, said, In baseball, as in all of our [coaching] openings, knowledge of the game is important, but just as important is someone who truly supports KWHS baseball and will be dedicated to not only the coaching aspect, but also the other responsibilities, which include working with the parents and the community, raising funds and following [Florida High School Athletic Association] procedures.Menendez said in his statement that his tenure was a rewarding experience and that he has no regrets. Success is not only measured by wins and losses, he said, but by teachable moments and invaluable relationships fostered for a lifetime.He finishes with 120-94 mark after 8 yearsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL Lozano, Duma-Kenny, Roberts named MVPsThe leading scorer in the eight-year history of Coral Shores High School girls lacrosse graduates Thursday as the teams most valuable player. Julia Lozano, who scored 203 goals in her varsity career, received her second Hurricane Award at the May 29 lacrosse awards banquet.

Lozano signed to play with Stetson University before this spring, when she added another 63 goals, 28 assists, 28 forced turnovers and 98 ground balls to her sterling career totals. I cant understate what a major contribution Julia has made to the Coral Shores girls lacrosse team, head Mark Hall said. Coral Shores boys lacrosse coaches picked cowinners for this years Hurricane Award, selecting defender Addison DumaKenny and midfielder Kodi Roberts as the teams most valuable players. Both are seniors who helped the Cane boys win their first-ever state District 30 title, going 5-0 against league foes (6-8 overall). Duma-Kenny collected a team-high 204 ground balls.

Both are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has proposed listing them as endangered.Corals are dying rapidly, much more rapidly than we believe they have in the past, which is a problem for sustaining the populations, said Margaret Miller, an ecologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service of NOAA. Caribbean coral reefs are already dramatically changed from the way we understand they should look because 50 to 80 percent of the coral has already been lost from most Caribbean reefs.Nedimeyers four coral nurseries are thriving. But Miller cautioned that while the nurseries are helping us keep pace with this negative decline, there needs to be a concerted effort to address larger problems such as global warming and the chemical makeup of the ocean if coral reefs throughout the world are going to survive.Buying timeIn the meantime, recreational divers can join marine scientists in helping to buy time through the reef restoration efforts. The idea is to come up with a simple process and train people just like you to do it, Nedimeyer told a group of seven volunteer divers at a recent workshop in Key Largo that includes a series of educational lectures and hands-on dives to restore corals. Nedimeyer explained to the group that disease, severe cold fronts (just like Floridians, corals dont like the cold), multiple years of coral bleaching (caused by warmer water and other environmental factors) and frequent hurricanes are among the stressors that have contributed to the rapid decline of the coral, along with climate change, overfishing, coastal development and more. Nedimeyer and his group have experimented with different ways to grow corals in the nurseries, much as you would with plants. At first, corals were mounted on concrete disks using underwater adhesive, with each disk attached to a PVC pipe with a cement base raising the disk off the ocean floor. Live tissue grew over the adhesive as the coral formed new branches. Low-cost line nurseries were later introduced, where corals hanging from wire or monofilament survived at high rates and grew rapidly. But wildlife officials were concerned that dolphins, turtles and other species would get caught in the lines.New techniqueThe foundations latest technique has proven to be most effective: Corals hang on a tree nursery (think a Christmas tree with ornaments) that is tethered to the sea floor but can move around in storms. The coral starts out about the size of a knuckle but can grow to 12 or 15 inches. The volunteer divers help Nedimeyer attach the tiny starter coral fragments onto the tree nurseries about 30 feet below the surface of the water. When the coral lengthens and has healthy multiple branches, Nedimeyer clips it for replanting in the popular diving and snorkeling spot Molasses Reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. (Boats are tied up to permanent moorings, marked by buoys, to prevent dropped anchors from damaging the reef.) The divers at the recent Keys workshop traveled from across the U.S. for what they described as underwater community service. Their visit included swimming out to the coral nursery about the length of an acre (four-tenths of a hectare) and as far as your goggled-eyes can see to clean and prepare corals for planting. This is my way of giving back to the community, said Erin McKinnon of Orlando, who has taken the course twice. This garden is blossoming, said Sharon Boggess of North Conway, N.H., holding back tears. Its just so amazing to replenish the reef. Nedimeyer, whose work has led to the cultivation of some 40,000 corals in total, said he hopes his obsession with coral restoration can be expanded to local dive shops, so they can offer his workshops to visitors to help in the nurseries. Now we have more corals than we can plant, he said. Weve created a monster.Environment is vacation focusFrom Coral,1B misshapen. It may have fallen from the sky. Rubinstein was hunting near the crash sites of two airplanes that went down in the same area: Eastern Flight 401, a New York flight that crashed as it prepared to land in Miami in 1972, and ValuJet Flight 592, a 1996 flight to Atlanta that caught fire shortly after takeoff and plummeted into the remote swamps west of Miami. Rubinstein hopes to return the jewelry to its rightful owner. Weve got to get this back to the family if we can, he said last week. All 104 passengers and five crew members aboard the ValuJet flight died. The Eastern flight carried 163 passengers and 13 crew members. Seventy-seven people survived, thanks in part to a Homestead man who was catching frogs from his airboat that night. He pulled survivors onto his airboat and turned his headlamp skyward so rescue helicopters could find the crash.Eastern Flight 401 passenger Ron Infantino spent five hours pinned by debris in the water and sawgrass, holding onto the armrest of what had been his seat on the airplane. The crash stripped him of everything, leaving him naked except for the elastic of his socks. He screamed for his wife of 20 days, Lilly, but he never heard her voice again. Ive always wondered: Could you imagine if I went back out there and found my wallet? But no, he said. It took them two days to find Lilly. He first thought of his wife when he saw a picture of the pendant Rubinstein found, but didnt recognize it as a piece that belonged to her. Infantino, who is raising money to build a memorial to the people lost on his flight, praised Rubinstein for reaching out to the survivors and the victimsfamilies. When Rubinstein got the pendant home in February, he dropped it into a jewelry cleaning solution, expecting it to disintegrate. Instead, it became more lustrous and revealed an intricate leaf pattern. The Coral Springs man, who works at a construction firm, got in touch with the Florida Gold Coast Gem & Mineral Society, which posted his find in an online forum for jewelers. Stephen Walker of Walker Metalsmiths in Andover, N.Y., spotted the post and offered his expertise in Celtic jewelry to Rubinstein. Walker suspects the pendant belonged to someone aboard the ValuJet flight because Celtic jewelry was scarce in the 1970s and didnt become popular until the 1990s. Diamonds will survive anything, and sapphires will, too. These were the ideal materials to survive this. A14-carat gold would turn into a glob, he said. Rubinstein also took the pendant to Robert Moorman, owner of Carrolls Jewelers in Fort Lauderdale. Moorman recognized the religious symbolism in the piece, and he determined it was handmade from 18or 22-carat gold, probably in the 1800s or late 1700s. Rubinstein and Moorman have a few strong leads about the pendants possible owner. If he never finds the rightful owner, Rubinstein plans to give the pendant to a museum or the Archdiocese of Miami.

We serve the whole thing with grilled bread seasoned with garlic and orange for a bit of crunch and to aid in scooping up all the delicious bits. What youll need: Two tablespoons orange marmalade. One tablespoon packed dark brown sugar. Kosher salt. Zest of one lime. One tablespoon dark rum. One teaspoon ground coriander. Half a teaspoon red pepper flakes. One pound raw large shrimp, peeled. Two ears of corn, husked. 10-ounce container cocktail (small) tomatoes. Olive oil. Ground black pepper. One clove garlic, minced. Zest of one orange. Eight slices of baguette. One medium jicama, peeled and diced. One avocado, pitted, peeled and diced. Juice of two limes. One bunch of cilantro, leaves and stems, roughly chopped. Four ounces of soft goat cheese. Heat a grill to mediumhigh.In a small bowl, stir together the marmalade, brown sugar, one teaspoon of salt, the lime zest, rum, coriander and red pepper flakes. Add the shrimp, stirring to thoroughly coat. Arrange the corn and tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, orange zest and two tablespoons of olive oil. Brush over both sides of each slice of baguette.Arrange the shrimp, ears of corn, and tomatoes on the grill and cook until the shrimp are cooked through and pink and the corn and tomatoes are beginning to char. Add the baguette slices and grill until lightly charred. Transfer to a platter and allow to cool slightly.Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss together the jicama, avocado and lime juice. Slice the corn kernels off the cobs. To do this, one at a time stand each ear on its wide end and use a knife to saw down length of the cob. Add the kernels to the jicama-avocado mixture. Add the tomatoes, shrimp and cilantro. Stir gently. Crumble the goat cheese over the top and serve with the toasted bread.

C SPECIAL SECTION: CONGRATULATIONS TO OURKEYSHIGH SCHOOLGRADUATESwww.KeysNet.com| GRADUATES WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 2013 1C Hair by MarthaNails by Ivis You Made It! You Made It! You Made It! You Made It! Hats off to the Class of 2013Congratulations and Good Luck....Southwind Plaza 8903 Overseas Hwy Marathon289-1631 2013 KEYS GRADUATESGraduates will choose diplomas next yearMIAMI HERALD/TIMES TALLAHASSEE BUREAUFlorida high school seniors will encounter a new requirement next year before they can graduate. Legislation signed into law by Florida Gov. Rick Scott mandates a financial literacy course for all seniors beginning with those graduating in 2014. And, what if high school were less like an assembly line and more like a Choose Your Own Adventure novel? State lawmakers passed bills that will let students pick from two different diploma designations, each with its own set of graduation requirements. One would be designed for students planning to go directly into the workforce. College-bound teenagers would have their own pathway.Superintendents say the move will keep students engaged in their studies, and provide them with the technical training they need for high-demand jobs. And Floridas Governor has been repeating the jobs, jobs, jobs mantra since he first entered office. The graduation bill is the latest effort by Florida lawmakers to shake up the states secondary schools. Several laws have attempted to make the curriculum more challenging and relevant to students career goals. Other laws have phased out the old Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests. In 2010, the Legislature ushered in a new regime of standardized tests known as end-of-course exams. Three were designed as must-pass tests: Algebra I, Geometry and Biology. This years freshmen are the first students saddled with the graduation requirement. That concerns superintendents, who point out that only 59 percent of test-takers passed the Algebra I exam last year. Right now, you and I know that there is the potential for a bottleneck effect for graduating students, Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho told state representatives in Tallahassee during this years legislative session. Other legislation that passed both houses and have been signed by the Governor will also: Enable state universities to qualify as preeminent research universities and receive additional money for online initiatives and high-tech degree programs. Allow some funding for state universities to be based on performance, rather than just enrollment. Allow state colleges to create a degree program that costs no more than $10,000. Provide financial incentives for schoolteachers whose students earn industry certification or post high scores on college-level exams. In some ways, the legislation represents a backpedaling from previous education laws. For more than a decade, Florida lawmakers have been adding challenging new classes and exams to the list of graduation requirements. The latest effort to reform the school system removes some of those obligations. The danger in the previous legislation was that it would drive more students away from high school [rather] than drawing them to success, Orange County Superintendent Barbara Jenkins said. Some of those courses, algebra II as well as chemistry as a graduation requirement, were just a little beyond what some of our students would need to be successful. But the law also represents a step forward into uncharted digital terrain, and a renewed effort to link education to careers.This legislation... makes sure that we embed into our curriculum those job skills that are necessary for students to walk off the graduation stage and get real jobs in the real economy, said Senate President Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican and former superintendent.SB 1076 passed the Legislature with universal support from Republican and Democratic lawmakers and the blessing of state Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. University presidents, schools superintendents, parents, teachers and business leaders lavished praise on the proposal, too. Gaetz said the bill had been in the works for more than a decade. But the efforts were fast-tracked this year when superintendents expressed concerns about new graduation requirements that applied to the current class of ninth-graders. Superintendents said the new standards completing algebra II, and passing challenging endof-course exams in algebra I, geometry and biology were too tough, and would have prevented thousands of teenagers from earning a diploma. Failing to act would have resulted in a bottleneck of students, who for a lack of passing a single test would be blocked from receiving a high school diploma, and thereby forever limiting their opportunities to succeed, Miami-Dade Superintendent Carvalho said. The revised requirements will apply to current freshman and all future high school students, say lawmakers. Students wont have to take algebra II unless they want a new scholar designation on their diploma. That designation will also entail passing the algebra II end-of-course exam, earning two credits in a foreign language and enrolling in at least one college-level class. Students will also have the option of merit designation, which will allow them to substitute industry-certification courses for more traditional courses in math and science. Industry certification could entail anything from automotive technician to Microsoft-certified technician to Sun-certified Java programmer. All students will still have to pass the end-ofcourse exam in algebra I and a standardized test in language arts. But they will be able to customize the remaining requirements to fit their needs and interests by selecting, or declining, one or more designations.Lawmakers insist that the new legislation wont water down the curriculum.These are strenuous, rigorous qualifications that are not that easy, said Sen. Bill Montford, a Tallahassee Democrat and CEO of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents. Montford conceded, however, that lawmakers might have gone too far in raising the standards over the past decade.Some of us were in opposition then, the former Leon County superintendent said. The beauty was, even though we [made those initial changes], we could come back and adjust it.Herald/Times reporter Tia Mitchell, along with Miami Herald reporters David Smiley and Michael Vasquez, contributed to this report.
