Mediator reinstates captainsAfederal mediator has reinstated to captain three Monroe County Fire Rescue firefighters who had been demoted to lieutenant. Two of them also had their suspensions reduced. Last year, Chief Jim Callahan had ordered the discipline of Richard Coletta, Eric Sellers and Omar Fernandez, all of whom work at Key West International Airport because these officers had basically not been doing their job for years. Im very disappointed in the arbitrators decision. Specifically, they were accused on June 21 and 22, 2012, of not maintaining PPK, an extinguishing agent, in airport fire trucks. Not only wasnt it in the truck, it hadnt even been checked for years, Callahan said. These guys endangered people because they didnt even know how to check the truck. The fact of the matter is, both trucks. It was the most egregious thing Ive seen in my career.Airport Battalion Chief Dale Beaver investigated and found probable cause they didnt follow department policy and failed to ensure subordinates were doing their jobs.Following that, on July 17, 2012, Deputy Chief of Operations Gary Boswell held a predetermination hearing and agreed with Beaver on Aug. 13.Coletta was suspended for nine shifts and demoted. Sellers was suspended for four shifts and demoted. Fernandez was demoted. Also, all three couldnt apply for promotion for two years. All appealed.Tuesday, Anthony Redwood, an arbitrator assigned by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, reduced Colettas suspension to four shifts and Sellersto one. He also ordered all three to be reinstated as captains and that they receive back pay. Lt.

Fire safety is majorconcern on the FourthIndependence Day, unfortunately, is one of the busiest days of the year for fire fighters.According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more fires are reported on the Fourth of July than on any other day of the year, and two out of five are fireworks-related incidents. The association urges holiday revelers to use extreme caution around fireworks. Consumer fireworks are dangerous and the risks to personal safety and the safety of the community are significant, according to NFPA. Fireworks injured 9,600 people in the United States in 2011, according to NFPA records. Celebrating the Fourth of July with fireworks, cookouts and community events can quickly turn to disaster if proper precautions are not taken. Children are especially at risk on July 4. In 2011, 26 percent of victims with fireworks injuries were under 15, says NFPA. Children should never play with fireworks. Even sparklers can reach 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Fireworks are not legal in the Keys. If you decide to ignore these words of caution and set off your own fireworks display, precautions need to be taken, and taken seriously, NFPAsaid. While pretty, fireworks can be very, very dangerous. Please only call 9-1-1 for potentially life-threatening situations so fire fighters are available to respond quickly when lives are in danger. Noise complaints should go to the Sheriffs Office or police departments in Key West and Key Colony Beach.

Judge Mark Jones will pronounce sentence in a proceeding set to begin at 11:30 a.m. in Courtroom B of the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Val Winter, who is prosecuting along with Chief Assistant State Attorney Manny Madruga, said sentencing memorandums are due into Jones by July 22. LeBaron, 36, faces the death sentence for beating to death Richard Gardner, 57, aboard Gardners boat Flo To Me at the Oceanside Marina on Stock Island on Feb. 10, 2009. LeBaron is represented by Jack Blumenfeld from the South Florida Regional Office of Conflict. The jury voted 11-1 for the death penalty during the sentencing phase of LeBarons trial back in May. Prosecutors built their case around testimony from Kristen Whitmore, 44, who pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder for her role in the slaying. Shes serving 18 years in prison. Testimony, court documents and police reports indicate the victim, a resident of Cape Coral, had allowed Whitmore to stay on his boat and that she ledJonathan LeBaron jury voted 11-1 for death penaltyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTTax roll pegged at $19.1 billionThe taxable value of Florida Keys land has increased by nearly $479 million, says a new Monroe County tax roll submitted to the state Monday for review.Thats up from the earlier estimates released in June and 2.55 percent higher than the roll submitted in 2012. The Keys new tax value is now pegged at $19,194,761,839 pending approval by the Florida Department of Revenue.The tax roll does not mirror the market value of many Florida Keys properties because of various state law and constitutional amendments that limit increases for many owners, said Lynn Garcia, supervisor of the Real Estate Department in the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office. It is a small increase from last year, Garcia said. When there is an increase, you start to hit the capped assessments rather than the actual market value. Assessments on residential property may increase when the home is sold. The $19.2-billion roll will be used by the county, the five Keys municipalities and other special taxing districts to calculate property taxes that support their operations.The property-tax roll used by the Monroe County School District is approximately $1 billion higher, since an increase in Homestead Exemptions for residential properties that2.55 percent increase over 2012 tax rollMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comSee LeBaron,3ASee Tax roll,2A
took effect last year does not apply to school taxes. At the height of the development boom in 2006, Monroe County had a tax roll that reached $26.65 billion. Property sales are increasing in the Keys after the downturn, real-estate professionals say, but sales made in 2013 will not be reflected in the tax roll until 2014. Thats because the tax roll always lags one year behind current market. Monroe County has approximately 90,000 parcels of property, many of which are not taxable or virtually unbuildable. This year, Monroe County Commissioners approved a measure that any property that would pay less than $30 in ad valorem taxes will not receive a bill. That could apply to mangrove wetlands, roadways or bay bottom, Garcia said. Monroe County agencies are working on their budgets over the summer. An estimated tax notice will be mailed out in early August to property owners. The tax millage rate calculated for every $1,000 of taxable value could be reduced after authorities hold public hearings on their budgets, using the projected tax roll submitted to Tallahassee on Monday.

Remember, Fire Chief David Fraga cautioned, if it explodes or if it flies, its illegal. Were encouraging everyone to just come out and enjoy the display being sponsored by the Rotary Club. The fireworks ban is attributed to Key Wests dense and predominantly wood construction. Sparklers are permitted but police spokeswoman Alyson Crean noted they burn at around 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit and can be dangerous. That annual Key West fireworks spectacle, hosted by the Rotary Club of Key West since 1976 and supported by donations, fires off from the Atlantic-side White Street Pier at dusk on Thursday. Police are cautioning visitors are heavy traffic following the show and urging everyone to use caution on Key Wests narrow streets. Key West gets reprieveKey West drivers will get a brief respite over the Fourth of July weekend as crews working the massive rebuild of North Roosevelt Boulevard take a break until July 7. An influx of tourist traffic expected for the long holiday weekend, plus locals trying to get to holiday events and the big fireworks show off White Street Pier make for frazzled drivers. Even with work crews gone, drivers are reminded that North Roosevelt Boulevard is still down to two lanes in-bound only. Caution is urged. The Florida Department of Transportation is undertaking the $41.5 million Roosevelt rebuild. As of June 28, work was 49 percent complete, according to project spokesman Dean Walters. That equates to 431 construction days, which would put completion sometime in September 2014. The finished boulevard will include a new seawall bordered by a 20-foot-wide landscaped promenade, four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide, a 10-foot center turn lane and a six-foot sidewalk on the business side of the road.Duck KeyThe Monroe County Sheriffs is also warning motorists to expect heavy traffic on U.S. 1, particularly on Sunday July 7 as holiday visitors exit the Keys. Atemporary construction signal light installed on U.S. 1 as it enters Duck Key caused severe traffic backups following the Memorial Day weekend. Based on that experience, the Sheriffs Office has announced plans for deputies to manually control the intersection on Sunday, July 7. As officers control the light, the main priority will be to maintain traffic flow along the highway, according to Deputy Becky Herrin. We anticipate this may cause a significant delay of up to 20 minutes for vehicles exiting Duck Key.

With the July 9 petition deadline fast approaching, former council candidate Allen Pedersen filed on Monday to seek one of two open seats on the dais. He joins Keating and former Mayor Pete Worthington on the ballot. But Pedersen told the Keynoter that he wont officially decide on joining the race until Tuesdays petition deadline has passed. He said potential real estate dealings such as Knights Key and Banana Bay Resort with out-of-county partners could keep him out of the race. Ive had other opportunities to do things; if I get involved with this I might not be able to do those other things, he said. Pedersen told the Keynoter hes considering a run because at least 50 residents have approached him about running for office. All of these people say, Youre not connected with anyone; you have a clear view, he said. Im doing some real heavy duty thinking. Im going to talk to several people and make sure its the right thing to do. Pedersen said he hasnt followed local politics closely the past few years, but pointed to the controversial zip-line course at Crane Point Hammock and redeveloping hotel properties as issues hed like to work on. Pedersen finished last out of eight candidates seeking three open seats on the council in 2008. Current council members Ginger Snead and Dick Ramsay, along with Worthington, won, while Pedersen garnered 4.3 percent of the vote. Prospective council members have until July 9 to submit 59 petitions to the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office. Otherwise, candidates must pay a $720 fee during the qualifying period from noon Aug. 6 to noon Aug. 13. The election is Nov. 5. Keating and outgoing Mayor Mike Cinque whos termed out after three consecutive two-year terms were each reelected unopposed in November 2011. Keating admitted it would be a little unusual if no one stepped up to run for council, but that he welcomes qualified candidates to enter the race. He filed on June 24. I hope if someone does run we have good viable candidates and thats what were about in America. But I hope people are happy, he said. Keating has been more of a quiet presence on the council since his election in 2009. He hasnt brought much in the way of proposals or initiatives to the table, but says that doesnt mean hes not active behind the scenes. People call me all the time; it may not be [an issue] we need to do in the form of an ordinance. Were always trying to help people with whatever problems they have as they deal with City Hall, Keating said. Ive just tried to vote my conscience.The two-term incumbent said last month he was likely to run, but hadnt committed in order to address some personal issues. He said Tuesday that he wants to continue doing the job. Ill have the time to devote to it and there are a few things Id like to see completed at the city and see if we cant get them completed and move forward, Keating said. Among those things are the new City Hall project, which the council endorsed in April, and construction of a planned 125-room Hyatt hotel at the Faro Blanco property and 95-room Courtyard by Marriott, both in Old Town. Keating said hed also like to see the state come through with much-needed sewer funding. That could be tricky since Gov. Rick Scott has indicated any grant money could not be used to pay down debt. The citys $101 million wastewater project is all but complete because it moved forward with a 2010 later extended to 2015 statemandated deadline approaching.Asecond $50 million installment of the $200 million Mayfield grant for Keys sewer projects was not approved this year. The first $50 million went to Monroe County and the village of Islamorada to jump start projects theyd not yet begun. I think its very important we do whatever it takes to get state money and get rewarded for moving forward on our sewer project and completing it, he said. Worthington, whos seeking a return to the council after being termed out in 2012, also cited sewer funding, City Hall and redevelopment as his main issues. He filed to run in May. Worthington served the maximum three consecutive two-year terms from 2006 to 2012. The city charter states council members must be off the dais at least one year before running for office again. Council elections are atlarge, meaning the highest two vote getters will win seats.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONHappy 105th MickeyFeinerIn a community known for its transient population, Samuel Mickey Feiners 23 years in the Keys could be considered a lifetime.In fact, theyre but a fraction of the longtime Key Colony Beach mayor and Monroe County Tourist Development Council chairmans time on this earth. Feiner is set to celebrate his 105th birthday on July 4, at home with friends and family in his hometown of Westport, Conn. Feiner left Key Colony 18 years ago at the age of 87, but made a huge impact during his time here. He never lost an election and was chosen by fellow commissioners as mayor/administrator for 13 straight years from 1982 to 1995. In addition, he was chosen to serve on the Monroe County Tourist Development Council in 1989 and was chairman of that board for six years. Feiner sounded well and in good spirits as he spoke with the Keynoter Tuesday. He said he never expected to reach such a monumental birthday. I felt when I was 65 it was all over, he joked. I retired in 1974 and that was a long time ago. Feiner said he and wife, Elaine, now 91, were familiar with the Keys and moved here after buying a 42-foot boat to live on. I knew the Keys. It was laid back and its where I wanted to be. We were there for a month or two and my wife was an artist and complained she had no room to paint, he said. The couple ended up renting a house for a time before deciding to buy a lot on 4th Street on Key Colony and build a place of their own in 1976. The move turned out to be the beginning of an unexpected political career. The current mayor was a friend of mine and when one of the commissioners husband died, she resigned and they appointed me temporarily. After that I ran each year, he said. Feiner was never involved in politics prior, and quickly garnered a reputation for being an opinionated commissioner. Ive heard that before. I guess I am opinionated, but Im very fair and try to be fair with every one I dealt with, he said. Feiner was involved with a number of city projects, but says one of his finest was one that greatly improved the look of the citys main strip. I think I accomplished a lot in Key Colony Beach. One of the major things is on the Causeway, at one time, all the electric poles were on the road. If you look at it now, theyre in the water. Through some cooperation with the electric company we had them put out there, he said. He still keeps in touch with several Keys friends including Key Colony Building Official Ed Borysiewicz and former City Clerk Joan Rinyu. He was just a dynamic person, Rinyu said. He was opinionated, but a very effective mayor.Former KCB Mayor celebrates his big day on July 4thBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACHSecond snorkel fatality in one weekAsnorkeling trip off Key West claimed the life of a Palm Beach man, 64, last Saturday.The death of Eugene Porter was the second fatality during a Florida Keys snorkel trip in a weeks time, and the fourth diving or snorkel related death in 2013.The youngest of this years four victims was age 56. Three were 64 or older. Awitness aboard Fury Water AdventuresKey West boat told Palm Beach television station WPBF that Porter apparently was on a honeymoon trip with his wife.He apparently fell unconscious in the water, and was brought to the boat. After rescue attempts, he was transferred to a Coast Guard boat. Porter was declared dead at the Lower Keys Medical Center.An autopsy by the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office indicated Porters death was caused by saltwater drowning, with possible complications from a heart attack he suffered in 2012.Maria Aviani, 73, of Argentina died June 22 after falling ill in the water during an afternoon snorkel trip off Key Largo. Aviani was still alive when found floating face-up near the boat Dolphin out of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, according to the Sheriffs Office. Attempts at resuscitation were not successful and she was pronounced dead on arrival at Mariners Hospital of Tavernier.

His cause of death was heart-related, according to the medical examiners office.Donna Hartson, 64, of Michigan died after a Feb. 12 dive in the same area. Hartsons cause of death was listed as drowning after running out of air in her tank. Her autopsy also showed signs of heart disease, according to the medical examiners report.

Thats why we went to a third party. Were happy with the outcome and happy that the guys got their positions back as captains. Boswell said the cost to the county is preliminary, but for reinstatement after their demotions, Coletta will get $2,640, Fernandez $2,486 and Sellers $2,222. For their suspensions, Coletta will get $2,538 and Sellers $1,614. It was very serious, Callahan said. They endangered citizens lives. He also said the issue was these captains ... they had not gone through any captains test. To my no knowledge, there was no process, no application. Thats correct, said county Airports Director Peter Horton. Firefighting services were under the airport, not county Fire Rescue, until about three years ago, he said. It was a small department, firefighters and captains, he said. We had two captains, thats all. We had only two people per shift. We hired a third. But basically, we had a shift commander and a firefighter. When we outgrew that, we went to the county. The county has testing for all of their positions, but the airport didnt at that point in time. Thats one of the reasons we went to the county. We had a fire chief, and the chief would promote like any other county employee.He added, Im very happy with the fire service and the strength of personnel and equipment we have now.Union: Happy with outcomeFrom Firefighters,1A LeBaron to the vessel to lay in wait and rob Gardner.

Allen was caught in California.Thomas Overton, 52, sentenced to death on March 18, 1999, for the 1991 murders of Michael and Missy MacIvor of Tavernier and their unborn child. Overton, a servicestation clerk who moonlighted as a burglar, was linked to the crimes after detectives obtained a DNA sample from his blood while he was in custody in November 1994 on a burglary count. Michael Tanzi, 36, sentenced to death on April 11, 2003, for the 2002 killing of Janet Acosta, a Miami Herald supervisor. In his confession, Tanzi said he forced Acosta into her van during her lunch break on Watson Island, drove her to the Keys and used her ATM card to withdraw money.

Keys doctoraccused of stealingAn Islamorada doctor was arrested Monday on charges he stole $60,000 from one of his patients by withdrawing money from her bank account for almost two years without her knowledge. Dr. Jamie Arthur Goodman, 55, declined to comment Tuesday when reached by telephone.Its been a whirlwind, but Id rather put it out of my mind at this point, Goodman said. According to his arrest affidavit, Goodman admitted to investigators mistakes were made in billing the alleged victim, which he blamed on bookkeeping and filing procedures. But he also said some of the money taken was part of a personal loan given to him by the alleged victim. Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies arrested Goodman Monday morning on felony larceny and fraud charges. He was booked into Plantation Key jail and released the same day on $150,000 bond. He was at his Keys Medical Center office at mile marker 82 when he was reached by a reporter Tuesday morning. Goodman operates two practices the Keys Medical Center and an anti-aging business called Essence of Phoenix. According to Detective Robert Doshs arrest report, the alleged victim, who was not named, began being treated by Goodmans Keys Medical Center in 2005. She told Dosh she paid Goodman $120 with her debit card. She said she and Goodman came to an agreement that he would withdraw $120 from her bank account every time she was treated. But she said between May 24, 2010 and Sept. 22, 2011, Goodman over billed her and withdrew a total of $60,000. Dosh said in his report that Goodman withdrew $45,000 using the Keys Medical Center name and $15,000 under Essence of Phoenix. The alleged victim told Dosh she was never an Essence of Phoenix patient, but bank records show Goodman made 15 withdrawals under that name. Goodman told investigators he withdrew the money under Essence of Phoenix because it was a personal loan from the alleged victim. However, evidence revealed through controlled telephone calls [phone calls listened to by investigators] and obtained documents, that suggested the suspects clear intention was to defraud the victim out of thousands of dollars, Dosh wrote in his report. Dosh said supporting evidence included bank records, medical notes, medical files, and the suspects own admission that he withdrew thousands of dollars without the victims knowledge. In several of the bugged phone calls, Goodman tried to convince the alleged victim that she was treated by Essence of Phoenix. After the alleged victim confronted Goodman, he deposited $15,000 into her account. He told Dosh he gave back the money as part of the loan agreement with the alleged victim. Doctor Goodman did not have the authorization to withdraw this amount, and his statements he made during the investigation that the money was given to him as a loan were false, Dosh wrote.Doctor says some money a personal loanBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADAKCB rebuffs states ROGO planThe city of Key Colony Beach doesnt want the state Department of Economic Opportunity monitoring how its few remaining building allocations are doled out. Key Colony Mayor/ Administrator Ron Sutton told the Keynoter the DEO recommended Key Colonylike every other government in Monroe-be a part of the rate of growth ordinance during last years hurricane evacuation modeling update. The state hosted several meetings Keyswide to gather input and update the model, which was approved by the Monroe County Commission in September. ROGO, as the building permit allocation program is known, is set to take effect on Key Colony Beach on July 13. We have never been under ROGO. Im not sure that its legal, so we decided as a commission to get an attorney to check into this and feed us some information about whether this can be changed, Sutton said. ROGO or some form of it allows the DEO to oversee development in the Keys, which is a designated Area of Critical State Concern. Under ROGO, Key Colony would be allowed six permits per year over the next 10 years.Sutton estimated Key Colony has only 80 lots left to build on. The system now is first come, first serve, and would remain that way under ROGO. But Sutton says the city of approximately 800 registered voters does not belong under ROGO. Our city in the summer months is empty. To put us under a ROGO is not right and it doesnt affect the safety of the city or county. It didnt pan out where the state listened to us, Sutton said.

John A. Crocker Lt. Col., USAF, Retired TavernierVillage needs ethics lawWe have had our fair share of growing pains with the formation of the village of Islamorada.We are on the way of maturing with the removal of the Miami law firm and the ad hoc committee report and recommendations of the serious problems in the administration and planning departments. We need to become a city of ethics and take the actions to ensure the success of the new in-house attorney and reform of all other departments.We must adopt a resolution establishing five ethics principles for the conduct of citys employees and officials. These principles are designed to guide the employees and elected officials as individuals and as a governing body. They are:Serve others, not ourselves.Use resources with efficiency and economy.Treat all people fairly.Use the power of our position for the well being of our constituents.Create an environment of honesty, openness and integrity. An adopted resolution must include these principles and be incorporated in the employee handbooks.The ordinance must contain definitions, an enumeration of permissible and impermissible activities by employees and elected officials, due-process procedures for employees and elected officials charged with a violation of the ordinance, and punishment provisions for employees and elected officials found in violation of the ordinance.The resolution and ordinance could be reviewed by an ethics committee, which could comprise volunteer attorneys who determine that both the resolution and ordinance meet the established requirements to become a village of ethics.Paul Bates IslamoradaWheres the help?It has become a sad world that we live in. I have been helping victims for the past 12 years access community resources. However, having a husband at home recuperating from a stroke who is also a veteran, we find ourselves in a financial bind and unable to access any resources that I have been helping victims find and access.He has been denied Medicaid, Social Security insurance and food stamps because I, being the one employed, make $200 over the federal poverty level.I commute two hours each day to go to work to help victims who need the resources, as well. My question: Does anyone know where we can turn to? I have always enjoyed helping others, but this time I need a little assistance. All we ask is to be able to continue helping others while asking for a little help for us.Elaine Higgins Key LargoToo many students are being set up to think they are failures by the very people who say they are pushing students to excel. Their teachers will see their hard work in front of the class undercut. And parents will think, wrongly, that their children are attending substandard schools.In a state system that rewards high-scoring schools with more money and penalizes lower-performing schools by withholding funds, the new state standards will do damage not just to institutions of learning. The quality of schools is a large factor in home values. An A school that plummets to a C will ding values throughout a neighborhood. Florida wants its students to perform ever better on standardized tests such as the FCATa laudable goal. But for the past few years, it has taken a wrongheaded approach.The state has continually fiddled with the schoolgrading formula, making more than a dozen changes this year alone. The grading standards have been changed midstream, and it stands to demoralize teachers and students even if students have tested better than the previous year and send horrified parents in search of educational alternatives. Unfortunately, Florida continues to tamper with the school grading formula, despite the objections of district superintendents, teachers and parent groups. FCATwriting standards have increased from 3 to 3.5. However, accountability measures will compare last years percent of students scoring 3 and above to this years percent of students scoring 3.5 and above. This likely will result in a significant loss of points for schools, even when the percent of students scoring 3.5 when comparing 2012 to 2013 increased substantially. Those changes will mean that though students performed better, schools that received performance grades of C last year may be facing F grades this year. This is patently unfair, an inaccurate and misleading portrayal of many schoolsprogress. Plus, the timing could not be worse. Curricula across the state, and in states across the country, are about to shift again. When Common Core is ushered in next year, students will be introduced to another new set of measures designed to impart consistent standards and skills to prepare them for college, and to better compete in a global workplace.There is still a sliver of hope that education officials can be talked back from this ledge. An 11-member advisory group, which includes Miami-Dade Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, met Monday, to begin a review of the states accountability system and recommend changes before school grades are issued this summer. The state Department of Education and the Florida Association for District School Superintendents created the task force. Education officials should scrap the provision that factors the scores of students at alternative centers and specialized exceptional education centers into the scores at their would-be neighborhood school. These centers serve students with intense learning disabilities and need special help. Foisting low scores onto schools that the students didnt attend is clearly unfair. Its just as egregious as expecting English Language Learners, those students whose native language is not English, to take state exams and pass them at the same proficiency levels as native speakers after having only one year of English instruction. Theres still time to reconsider these onerous changes, and retract them.Miami HeraldWayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

Like most Americans, Floridians kept a watchful eye on the U.S. Supreme Court last week, as the justices issued closely-divided and contentious decisions on the Voting Rights Act and gay marriage. But the impacts in Florida varied widely from those in other parts of the country. Florida doesnt allow any kind of gay marriage or domestic partnerships, meaning that only a ruling far wider than anyone expected from the Supreme Court would make a difference in the Sunshine State. And the state is, unlike many others, at least partially covered by the Voting Rights Act, meaning any decision on that federal law was actually more significant in Florida than elsewhere in the country.The difference in the impact of the rulings was clearly illustrated in the comments from the opponents of the courtsconclusions. House Judiciary Chairman Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, a strong supporter of the states ban on gay marriage: In Florida, I think theres been a very clear statement with the marriage amendment, where we stand. Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, which supports the Voting Rights Act: Todays decision undermines 40 years of fundamental protections against discriminatory voting laws and the League urges Congress to act quickly to restore the Voting Rights Act.Our Country has changedFor supporters of the ruling in the Voting Rights Act case which struck down the formula used to figure out which state and local governments qualify for extra federal oversight of their voting laws the issue was relatively simple. No longer is the South the land of segregated water fountains and literacy tests, and a formula that was established back when those dark days were a fresh memory is no longer relevant.Our country has changed, and while any racial discrimination in voting is too much, Congress must ensure that the legislation it passes to remedy that problem speaks to current conditions, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the 5-4 majority. Those who opposed the decision, though, saw the act as part of the reason that there were no longer literacy tests, poll taxes or several other devices that states came up with to try to keep black voters from casting ballots before the Civil Rights Movement.The sad irony of todays decision lies in its utter failure to grasp why the VRAhas proven effective, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote in a dissent.For Florida, the implications were relatively clear. Unless and until Congress comes up with a new formula for which states qualify for preclearance, and unless the state or one of its counties falls under that formula, state lawmakers are free to pass pretty much any change in voting laws they like. Any challenge would have to come after the fact, in a lawsuit. Any time we have the opportunity to make our own decisions, I think thats great for our state, Gov. Rick Scott told reporters following last weeks state Cabinet meeting. There are not yet any indications about whether the state might try to push through any changes that would previously have been tripped up by preclearance. But that is clearly what opponents feared. It should be disturbing to every Florida voter that the Supreme Court seems not to have noticed what happened in Florida over the last two years, where we have battled the Legislatures partisan manipulation of our voting rights, Macnab said. Atraditional marriage stateThe decision on same-sex marriage was more of a mixed bag for those who support allowing gays and lesbians to tie the knot. The court threw out part of a federal law, called the Defense of Marriage Act, that denied federal benefits to same-sex couples who are legally married in states that approve their unions.But Florida doesnt allow same-sex marriage. And the courts ruling on a California ban on gay marriage essentially invalidated that law, but was decided on procedural grounds and didnt find a constitutional right requiring states to give gays and lesbians access to marriage. The rulings out of the Supreme Court mean so much for so many people, but so much less for the people in Florida, said Rep. Joe Saunders, an Orlando Democrat and one of the first two openly gay lawmakers in the state. That didnt seem likely to change any time soon. The voters in 2008 decided that were going to be a traditional marriage state, said Gov. Rick Scott, noting that hes been married since he was 19. Thats what the voters decided, and its my job as governor to uphold the law of the land. The only path that looked like a possible route to same-sex marriage in Florida was Equality Floridas ballot initiative, Get Engaged, which is trying to get a measure before voters in 2014. But University of South Florida political science professor Susan MacManus said the measure might do better in 2016, a presidential year when the electorate is likely to be younger and more supportive.But its still a divided state on the issue, she said, and if it were put on the ballot, much would depend on the turnout the demographic make-up of the voters who actually turn out to vote.DIFFERING VIEWSFlorida remains divided on gay marriageReaction more muted on Supreme Courts Voting Rights rulingBy BRANDON LARRABEEThe News Service of Florida Bicyclists asked forinput on masterplanAs the city of Key West works to update its bicycle master plan, a public input session is set for 7 p.m. tonight at Old Town Manor, 511 Eaton St. The bicycle master plan, most recently updated in 2010, is a 10-page document that lists five broad goals supported by specific objectives and policies all aimed at making Key West safe and friendly for bike riders. City spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the bicycle needs workshop, will cover bicycle safety, connectivity, storage and parking. The suggestions and comments will be recorded and used to help inform the bicycle master plan. The session is being hosted by the representatives of the citys Preserve Island Life program, which pushes myriad sustainability initiatives, and also on hand will be the Big Green Bus from Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. The bus, which runs on biodiesel fuel made from reused cooking oil, is billed as a classroom on wheels, and manned by a dozen Dartmouth students studying in fields like environmental science and engineering. Crean said attendees will get a chance to tour the bus, which has been on the road since 2005, speak with the crew and view short green movies afterwards.The workshop is set for 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. with film screening running until 10 p.m. The goals outlined in the bicycle master plan are:Establish bicycles as a major mode of transportation.Establish bicycle recreation as a major attraction and amenity.Key West shall be a safe place for bicyclists of all skill level.Achieve a national and international reputation as being a community that accommodates bicycles.Regularly review and advance the bicycle master plan. The first goal has been supported through integration of bicycle racks on the citys bus fleet and working with local cab companies to put racks on the bulk of taxis operating in the Southernmost City.Needsworkshop set today at Old Town ManorBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Dartmouth Colleges Big Green Bus will be coming to Key West today.

Wednesday,July 3,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Business Hospital chain fires back at its criticsNaples-based hospital chain Health Management Associates, which manages Lower Keys Medical Center, has fired back at a major stockholders attempt to replace the companys board of directors. The HMAboard released a letter urging other shareholders to take no action in response to the takeover bid, launched by Glenview Capital Management. Glenview, which owns 14.6 percent of HMAs common stock, has proposed replacing the HMAboard with eight independent directors that it dubbed the Fresh Alternative. HMAoperates hospitals in 15 states, with Florida its largest market. In the Florida Keys, HMAcurrently manages operations at Lower Keys Medical Center and previously had the contract to run Fishermens Hospital. Last year, the Fishermens trustees ended the agreement with HMA and brought in hospital consultants to advise on transition to local management after 25 years with the Naples-based group. Fishermens still has a contract with Quorem Health Resources, which provides ongoing consulting services. HMAs current board, reacting to the Glenview campaign, said it has hired Morgan Stanley to help consider strategic alternatives and opportunities available to the company. In our view, Glenviews actions are an unnecessary distraction to the companys strategic review process and an attempt to advance its own agenda for the company with its hand-picked nominees,according to the letter sent late last week to HMA shareholders. Gary Newsome, the president and chief executive officer of HMA, announced last month that he would retire to take a position with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Keynoter contributed information for this article.HMA board battles shareholder group over future controlFlorida News ServiceKEY WESTIncome-based tax credits comingStill a little hazy about the health care overhaul? You have plenty of company. About half the people surveyed earlier this spring by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation felt they didnt have enough information to understand how the law will affect their family. Among those with an annual household income of less than $30,000, some 30 percent thought the law had been repealed by Congress or the Supreme Court.Thats the low-income demographic the law is designed to help the most as it extends insurance coverage to millions of uninsured people.With those results in mind, here are five key points everyone should know about the overhaul, heading into this fall and 2014, when major changes start to unfold.Law is in effectCongress passed President Barack Obamas health care law in March 2010, and the overhaul has since survived 37 attempts by Republicans in the House of Representatives to eliminate, defund or partly scale it back. The law, known as the Affordable Care Act or ACA, also survived a more substantial test last year when the Supreme Court upheld its constitutionality. However, the courts ruling gave states the right to decide whether to expand Medicaid, the stateand-federally funded program that covers the needy and disabled people. Medicaid plays a key role in the ACAs plan to provide insurance coverage to more Americans.Coverage requiredThe overhaul mandates that, starting in 2014, most U.S. citizens and legal residents obtain coverage or pay a penalty. Some exemptions have been carved out for groups that include Indian tribe members, prisoners and individuals who belong to health care sharing ministries.The annual penalty starts at $95 per adult, or 1 percent of family income whichever is greater and then rises over the next few years.Major milestonesNext year, the ACAwill take two major steps toward its goal of providing more individuals with insurance coverage. Medicaid will be expanded in states that allow it, and many people will be able to buy coverage using incomebased tax credits.These tax credits, or subsidies, are reserved for people who cant get health insurance through an employer and who dont qualify for Medicaid, Medicare or military-based coverage.State-based benefits exchanges will debut in October and they will enable consumers to go online to compare 2014 coverage terms and prices and then use tax credits, if they qualify, to buy a policy.Financial helpThe tax credits or subsidies will be available to help individuals and families making up to four times the federal poverty level. For 2013, that equates to an income of $94,200 for a family of four in all states except Alaska and Hawaii. The tax credits will be doled out on a sliding scale. That means individuals with incomes closer to the poverty guideline will receive bigger credits. These credits wont lower premiums, but they can ease the insurance bill depending on a persons income. For instance, a 30-yearold with an income of $30,000, who doesnt smoke or have kids, could receive a tax credit worth more than $900. That person might then have to pay $1,925 for insurance that would provide the minimum level of coverage required under the overhaul. Thats according to a subsidy calculator designed by Kaiser and posted on the foundations website at http://kff .org/interactive/subsidycalculator/ Starting next year, the ACAalso will help individuals get coverage regardless of their health. Currently, if you already have a medical condition, insurers can either reject your application or charge a much higher price. Many people with heart trouble or diabetes are unable to find an insurer willing to cover them because of the risk they represent for future claims.Insurance pricesHealth insurers are warning that premiums, or the cost of coverage, could soar for some people due to a number of factors. Those include taxes and fees, as well as coverage requirements the law imposes.The extent of any price hikes will depend on many variables, such as where people live, their current coverage and health and their age.About 149 million individuals have employer-sponsored health coverage in the United States, making it the largest source of coverage.As health care law goes into effect in 2014By TOM MURPHYAssociated PressHEALTH CAREAP photo by DAVID J.PHILLIPLibrarian Joan Limbert,left,works at her station inside the Barbara Bush Branch Library in Spring,Texas.The nations librarians will be recruited to help people sign up for insurance under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul.Up to 17,000 U.S.libraries will be part of the effort.

The government is onto you. For the first time, the Agriculture Department is telling schools what sorts of snacks they can sell. The new restrictions announced last week fill a gap in nutrition rules that allowed many students to load up on fat, sugar and salt despite the existing guidelines for healthy meals. Parents will no longer have to worry that their kids are using their lunch money to buy junk food and junk drinks at school, said Margo Wootan, a nutrition lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest who pushed for the new rules.That doesnt mean schools will be limited to doling out broccoli and brussels sprouts.Snacks that still make the grade include granola bars, low-fat tortilla chips, fruit cups and 100 percent fruit juice. And high school students can buy diet versions of soda, sports drinks and iced tea.But say goodbye to some beloved school standbys, such as doughy pretzels, chocolate chip cookies and those little ice cream cups with their own spoons. Some may survive in low-fat or whole wheat versions. The idea is to weed out junk food and replace it with something with nutritional merit. The bottom line, says Wootan: There has to be some food in the food.Still, 17-year-old Vanessa Herrera is partial to the CheezIt crackers and sugar-laden Vitaminwater in her high schools vending machine. Granola bars and bags of peanuts? Not so much. I dont think anyone would eat it, said Herrera of Rockaway, N.J.There are no vending machines at Lauren Jones middle school in Hoover, Ala., but she said theres an a la carte stand that sells chips, ice cream and other snacks.Having something sweet to go with your meal is good sometimes, the 13year-old said, although she also thinks that encouraging kids to eat healthier is worthwhile.The federal snack rules dont take effect until the 2014-15 school year, but theres nothing to stop schools from making changes earlier.Some students wont notice much difference. Many schools already are working to improve their offerings. Thirty-nine states have some sort of snack food policy in place. Rachel Snyder, 17, said earlier this year her school in Washington, Ill., stripped its vending machines of sweets. She misses the pretzel-filled M&Ms. If I want a sugary snack every now and then, Snyder said, I should be able to buy it. The federal rules put calorie, fat, sugar and sodium limits on almost everything sold during the day at 100,000 schools expanding on the previous rules for meals.

The bad news is the windy conditions are keeping many from venturing offshore.If you choose to target dolphin this week, the key is to stay mobile, cover lots of ground and look for bird action. However, if you find a good weed line, especially one containing some debris, these seem to be holding the larger dolphin.Should you happen on a school of smaller fish, sometimes it pays to stick with them for awhile, as opposed to dismissing them, as often theyre being shadowed by larger fish looking to snack on their cousins. The dolphin are ranging anywhere from little peanuts up to slammers. So be sure to have your measuring board with you and remember that the legal size is 20 inches to the fork of the tail.The yellowtail snapper bite remains consistent in all depths on the reef. Its crucial to have sufficient current. Find the current; find the fish.Mangrove snapper are biting on the reef in the daytime as well as at night. They are mostly in the 35to 50-foot depths. Youll need slightly larger tackle than your yellowtail gear. That is, larger hooks, 20to 25-pound fluoro leaders and larger baits, such as chunks of ballyhoo and pinfish or live ones presented near the bottom.You may pick up theYellowtail action good at all depths on the reefFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSThe extended Whelahan family,fishing offshore last week with Capt.Chris Klimas,landed this good-size dolphin. UpperKeys Majors play tonightThe Upper Keys Majors opened their Age 11-12 Little League District 8 Tournament with an 18-8 loss to Kendall. After a wholesale reshuffle of the district schedule, the Keys squad saw its opener advanced from Tuesday night to Sunday. We had a rough start to the game Sunday but came back to score eight runs in one inning, Upper Keys manager Jason Richards said. The Upper Keys, the only Monroe County squad in the tournament, plays in Key Largo at 7:15 p.m. today against Miami Springs. Our team looks good, Richards said. We believe we can compete. We have several returning players and a few new eager players on this years team. Teams dropping out of the Little League tournament caused district administrators to combine the originally planned North and South Pools into one four-team circuit that splits games between Key Largo Community Park and North Miamis Pepper Park. Each team plays the three opponents twice under the new format. The Upper Keys all-star squad stays home to play its next four games in Key Largo. Only the Keys teams round-robin final on July 11 is scheduled for the North Miami field. Other games for the Upper Keys team take the Key Largo field at 11 a.m. Saturday against North Miami; at 11 a.m. Sunday against Kendall; and at 7 p.m. July 9 against Miami Springs.Juniors winThe Upper Keys team in the Age 13-14 Little League District 8 Tournament swept a doubleheader in the opening round of Juniors playoffs Saturday. Hitters for the island team banged out an 18-3 win over North Miami Beach in a game called after four innings. The tide shifted to pitching and defense when the Keys topped Liberty City, 51, in the second game.All-stars from the Upper Keys are Roman Roberts, Jack Machesic, Bryce Wheaton, Nickolas Perez, Jose A. Lima, Aiden Hawkins, Edward Jankowski, Joshua Gregis, Jay Kubida, Sean Walters, Andres Albarracin, Marcus Gallen and Ty Harrelson. Tony Gregis and Bryan OBerry coach the team.The Upper Keys returns to the mainland for two games July 6, starting with a 9 a.m. game against Liberty City.

One oasis of sweetness and fat will remain: Anything students bring from home, from bagged lunches to birthday cupcakes, is exempt from the rules. The Agriculture Department was required to draw up the rules under a law passed by Congress in 2010, championed by first lady Michelle Obama, as part of the governments effort to combat childhood obesity. Nutritional guidelines for subsidized lunches were revised last year and put in place last fall.Last years rules making main lunch fare more nutritious faced criticism from some conservatives, including some Republicans in Congress, who said the government shouldnt be telling kids what to eat. Mindful of that backlash, the Agriculture Department left one of the more controversial parts of the rule, the regulation of inschool fundraisers like bake sales, up to the states.The rules have the potential to transform what many children eat at school.In addition to meals already subject to nutrition standards, most lunchrooms also have a la carte lines that sell other foods often greasy foods like mozzarella sticks and nachos. That gives students a way to circumvent the healthy lunches. Under the rules, those lines could offer healthier pizzas, lowfat hamburgers, fruit cups or yogurt and similar fare.One of the biggest changes will be a near-ban on high-calorie sports drinks. Many beverage companies added sports drinks to school vending machines after sodas were pulled in response to criticism from the public health community. The rule would only allow sales in high schools of sodas and sports drinks that contain 60 calories or less in a 12-ounce serving, banning the highest-calorie versions of those beverages. Low-calorie sports drinks Gatorades G2, for example and diet drinks will be allowed in high school. Elementary and middle schools will be allowed to sell only water, carbonated water, 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice, and low fat and fat-free milk, including nonfat flavored milks. Republicans have continued to scrutinize the efforts to make school foods healthier, and at a House subcommittee hearing Thursday, Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., said the stringent rules are creating serious headaches for schools and students. One school nutritionist testified that her school has had difficulty adjusting to the 2012 changes, and the new a la carte standards could also be a hardship. The healthier foods are expensive, said Sandra Ford, president of the School Nutrition Association and director of food and nutrition services for a school district in Bradenton, Fla. She also predicted that her school district could lose $975,000 a year under the new a la carte guidelines because they would have to eliminate many of the popular foods they sell. In a report released at the hearing, the Government Accountability Office said that in some districts students were having trouble adjusting to the new foods, leading to increased waste and kids dropping out of the school lunch program. The food industry has been onboard with many of the changes, and several companies worked with Congress on the child nutrition law three years ago. Angela Chieco, a mother from Clifton Park, N.Y., sees the guidelines as a good start but says it will take a bigger campaign to wean kids off junk food. I try to do less sugar myself, Chieco said.
