WWW.KEYSNET.COM SATURDAY,JULY 6,2013 VOLUME 60,NO.54 25 CENTS Wear RedMorada Way Arts and Cultural District pays homage to artist Millard Wells with a festival July 18-21,story 1B Batter UpUpper Keys All-Stars face North Miami in a tournament showdown today at Key Largo Community Park, story 1B Protests mount over ratesJust a year after Congress imposed significant changes in the governments oft-criticized flood insurance program, howls of protest from homeowners facing higher premiums have coastal lawmakers pressing for delays. At stake, losing belowcost rates for hundreds of thousands of people in floodrisk areas, including the Florida Keys. The government cant say how many people could confront higher premiums, but homeowners in coastal areas of Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Staten Island, N.Y. and along the battered New Jersey coast face the prospect that new government surveys could produce flood insurance premium increases so big that they could be forced from their homes or see their market value plummet. Thats insane, said Robert Taylor, a homeowner in Des Allemands, La. Taylor said the new law and flood survey would bump his premiums from $400 to more than $28,000 a year. This community has been here since 1923 and has never, ever flooded. Ever. At issue is a premium spike driven by a new flood map from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that says Taylors home is 6 or 7 feet below flood stage. The map, however, doesnt take into account a levee built 80 years ago by the local government that protected the community through hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Isaac. The federal flood insurance debate is the intersection where efforts to root out waste and abuse run into realworld impacts on people. The aim is to end taxpayer bailouts of the flood insurance program, even if the overhaul forces people from their homes, reduces real estate values and alters the fabric of communities.FEMAestimates that about 20 percent of its 5.5 million policyholders about 1.1 million receive subsidies. About 250,000 of them will see immediate increases: business owners, those owning second homes and people with frequently flooded properties.An additional 578,000 policyholders living in hazardous areas will retain their subsidies until they sell their homes or suffer severe, repeated flood losses. The same is true for people in condominiums.

Theyre done. But an inspection by federal General Services Administration staff last month raised the possibility of the former Florida Keys Electric Cooperative headquarters becoming a new Upper Keys base for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.No decision on a possible move will be made in the near future, Sanctuary spokeswoman Karrie Carnes said.Homeland Security intended to move Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection agents into the former FKEC building at mile marker 91.6. The Homeland Security proposal met with stiff community opposition. Many Tavernier residents worried the facility would be used to house federal prisoners. Opponents said plans for a new fence around the property and increased traffic on a side street would not fit in the communitys official designation as historic. The five-member Planning Commission agreed with county staff that modifications to suit Homeland Security did not conform to zoning requirements that the building serve the residents living in the immediate area. The developer, Tampabased Hoover Properties, insisted the building would have only temporary holding quarters, and no prisoners would stay overnight in the building. Judge D.R. Alexander with the state Division of Administrative Hearings said in his May ruling that Hoovers chief financial officer Tob Trickey candidly acknowledged that the facility contained holding cells, interview rooms and an armory, and that suspects would be detained and held for questioning for up to five days.The FKEC moved across the highway to the southNOAA may be eying former FKEC officesBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSSee Homeland,2ASpat could erupt over La ConchaKey Wests Planning Department staff is reviewing a developer proposal that would convert the top of the Crowne Plaza La Concha hotel renowned as one of the best sunset views in the Southernmost City into a spa for guests. Right now the so-called sunset at the top is a popular attraction for tourists and locals who can simply take the elevator to the seventh floor and enjoy the view. The meeting space is also used every Friday by the Sunrise Rotary Club. Architect Peter Pike initially submitted the proposal in February and has gone back and forth with city planners leading to an updated plan turned in on Wednesday. Per land use planner Owen Trepaniers concurrency analysis the goal is to complete the $1.4 million construction by November, which is predicated by public approval from the Historical Architecture Review Commission, Planning Board and Key West City Commission, none of which has happened yet.Trepanier notes that 86 percent of the construction cost, about $1.2 million, is to be spent in the city of Key West.The pending move has already sparked opposition from locals resulting in an online petition posted to Moveon.org that on Friday had drawn some 1,092 digital signatures.Per the website, the petition will eventually be presented to Planning Board Chairman Richard Klitenick and City Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, whose District 1 includes the La Concha.Hotelier Kate Miano, owner of the Gardens Hotel on Angela Street in Old Town, suggested a high end restaurant could be a better use of the space. How many spas do we need in Key West? This view is an important landmark. I would think having it open to the public would bring potential future guests into the hotel.

Bad day got worse for Marathon manWhen being arrested for trespassing, its best to leave your briefcase full of cash and weed out of the equation. But Marathon resident Jeff Pollock couldnt resist Saturday morning, telling Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies while in handcuffs in the back of a police car that he wanted to bring the case along for the ride. According to a Sheriffs Office report, Pollocks exgirlfriend, Stacie Saye, called police when the 49-year-old refused to leave her Camino Real home after she allowed him to stay the night. Police say Pollock insisted he lived in the house, but Saye produced a copy of his lease at Flamingo Motel on Grassy Key. The deputy on site, Bradford Colen, also reminded Pollock that he was one of the officers that had helped him when he moved out a few months earlier. Pollock was eventually arrested when deputy Colen learned that Pollack had earlier been warned on Sept. 7, 2012, about trespassing on Sayes property. Thats when Pollock informed Colen about the briefcase and asked the officer to retrieve it from the house. But Pollock refused to provide the combination to open the case, prompting the deputy to place it into [Sheriffs Office] property for safekeeping.The report says Pollock relented upon arrival at the Marathon jail, providing the six-digit combination. Inside police found $9,480 in cash, $32.08 in loose change and 27 grams of marijuana. Pollack was charged with felony possession of marijuana (over 20 grams), felony introduction of marijuana to a detention facility, misdemeanor possession of drug equipment and misdemeanor trespassing. He was booked into jail and the cash was seized for possible forfeiture.Police found marijuana, cash in caseBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCRIMEWhen police inspected a briefcase seized in a trespass case,they discovered cash and bags of marijuana inside. side of U.S. 1 to a new, larger building in 2010. Hoover bought the old building from the FKEC for $1.4 million in 2011. ICE and Customs and Border Protection now work out of a two-story building in the Venetian Shores subdivision on Plantation Key. Frank Greenman, Hoovers attorney, had said ICE and CBP have outgrown that office which Immigration and Border Patrol agents have used since 1986, 25 years before the creation of Homeland Security.The Keys National Marine Sanctuary, part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, currently leases a former plumbingsupply building on Key Largo at mile marker 95. That lease expires in July 2015. Carnes said the General Services Administration, the federal governments property procurement agency, briefly visited the old FKEC building last month. Carnes said the visit in no way implies that the Sanctuary will move from its current location, where it has been since 1997. Before leases expire, the federal government is required to explore opportunities that would successfully meet facility requirements for the best value to taxpayers, Carnes said.

After Amy took office, they needed legal help on some issues, Saunders, 58, said Tuesday. Then more things came up and it was not a part-time job any more. Theres a lot going on, he said. They needed somebody here most of time. Amy asked me to come on board full-time and I accepted.Several top administrators in the clerks office retired or left when longtime clerk Danny Kolhage stepped down last year to successfully seek election to the Monroe County Commission. Heavilin, former finance director for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, was elected as clerk in November.With people retiring, there were positions open. That increased the workload on those who were left, Saunders said. Handling court operations technically wasnt my job title, but its what Ive been doing to get things where they need to be.Ive been working in the Keys since 1979 as an attorney, so I know all the judges. I know the county commissioners, said Saunders, a fifth-generation Key Wester. It helps when people know who theyre dealing with. Saunders said his salary, still to be finalized after his June 12 hire, will be close to $86,000, approximately the amount Kolhage paid annually to an outside attorney to handle the clerks legal affairs. Saunders said his experience as state representative for 14 years provided extensive knowledge of wastewater funding allocated by the state to Monroe County. Danny Kolhage and I go way back. When I have a question, his office is literally downstairs, Saunders said. Danny is in a different role now, but hes a legend as clerk and a wealth of information.

Monroe students achieved a raw score of 418 (out of a possible 475) compared to a statewide average raw score of 403.Superintendent Mark Porter said the impressive scores are representative of the outstanding commitment to excellence in Monroe County schools.He attributed the success to intensive geometry boot camps, real life problem-solving, project based learning, collaborative group work and promoting student access to digital content, among other classroom efforts. We continue to celebrate the students and teachers who have worked diligently throughout this year to increase achievement in geometry across all grade levels in the district, Porter said.This is an area of deliberate practice that we have identified to assess the changes in instruction that led to the significant improvement district wide. Since 2011, Florida has been replacing the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) with subjectarea specific, end-of-course examinations. The new testing standard goes hand-in-hand with a transition from Sunshine State grading standards to Common Core standards, which have been adopted by 45 states in an effort to standardize assessment across the country.Texas, Alaska, Nebraska, Virginia and Minnesota where Porter worked before coming to Monroe County are still holdouts from the Common Core standards now being used to track student progress.End-of-course exam showed 84% pass rateOUR SCHOOLSUP ON THE ROOFTOP Photo by SGT.TOM KIFFNEYA fire was quickly extinguished on the roof of a building at Gilberts Resort and Marina Thursday afternoon.No one was in the building at the time and firefighters who responded shortly after 1 p.m.reported no injuries.When firefighters arrived on scene, they said a man was already on the roof with a hose attempting to douse the flames.

flood insurance premiums on the house would climb to $12,000 a year. The current owner was paying less than $1,400.The federal program, which has required $24 billion in bailouts since being established in 1968, had drawn withering criticism for its below-market insurance rates and the billions of dollars in losses from repeat claims on homes and businesses flooded every few years.Last years revision of the program was one of the few things that virtually everyone from tea party Republicans to liberals like Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., could agree on: It was time to bring soundness to the program by charging people insurance rates that reflect their risk of being flooded. Now comes the implementation. Starting late next year, FEMAwill no longer grandfather in below-market rates for people whose older homes were built to the flood code in previous years or decades ago but have been judged to be at greater risk under new flood maps.Already, people are paying higher rates for second homes. In October, rates on businesses in flood zones and homes that have been severely or repeatedly flooded will go up 25 percent a year until the rates represent the true risk of flooding. And subsidized rates will lapse when a home is sold or flooded repeatedly.Abigger impact could be felt by people whose homes met previous building standards or were deemed at lower risk under previous flood maps but will face higher premiums soon. Under the old system, they could retain their old rates, since they followed the rules at the time they bought or built their home. The new law will phase out such grandfathered rates, starting late next year.Lawmakers say this grandfathering change is the source of nightmare stories of homeowners who presently pay a few hundred dollars annually for their policy but face many-fold increases now. The changes have sparked enormous controversy in places like Louisiana, New Jersey and Florida, where subsidized flood insurance has been a staple of the economy for decades. In some areas, home values have plummeted because of uncertainty over insurance rates. Home sales are falling through because subsidized rates cant be passed on to the buyer. And some homeowners have learned that new flood maps will send their premiums skyrocketing. In response to the firestorm, an unusual House coalition of Democrats and GOPconservatives teamed up on a 281-146 vote last month to delay some of the premium increases for a year. The measure, sponsored by Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., would block FEMAfrom implementing a provision of the law that phases out below-market, grandfathered premiums for homeowners whose flood risks are deemed higher under new maps, but it leaves in effect FEMAefforts to phase out direct subsidies of people living in flood zones. Cassidys amendment was added to the spending bill that funds FEMAs budget. Despite opposition from conservative groups like Heritage Action, many prominent conservatives voted for the amendment, including Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Steve Scalise, RLa., chairman of the Republican Study Committee. Cassidy is running to unseat Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, who, for her part, is aiming for broader legislation in the Senate from her perch atop the Appropriations subcommittee that writes FEMAs budget. She hasnt revealed her plans. What Im talking about are the fishermen, the dock workers, the middle-class families that have lived on this coast and river for 300 years. And were literally pricing them out from a piece of geography that President Jefferson leveraged the entire federal Treasury to buy, Landrieu, D-La., said. On the heels of this recession, its just terribly cruel and harsh. And on the heels of the BPoil spill. And on the heels of Katrina and Rita, how much more can we take? Supporters of the changes roll their eyes. They say the law is, for the most part, being implemented as designed and that its just that people are upset by the higher insurance rates they are having to pay. This program was designed to bring some sanity to this flood program, Rep. Mick Mulvaney, RS.C., said during debate on delaying the new premiums. These are the exact intended consequences ... that we would simply charge folks who are in risky areas more. But FEMAs critics say the agency is botching implementation of the law, for instance, failing to take into account nonfederal levees and flood mitigation factors like coastal restoration and pumping equipment when looking at flood risks. Abigger impact could be felt by people whose homes met previous building standards or were deemed at lower risk under previous flood maps but will face higher premiums soon. Under the old system, they could retain their old rates, since they followed the rules at the time they bought or built their home. The new law will phase out such grandfathered rates, starting late next year.Lawmakers say this grandfathering change is the source of nightmare stories of homeowners who presently pay a few hundred dollars annually for their policy but face many-fold increases now. FEMAcant tell policymakers how many people even benefit from grandfathered rates, much less predict how remapping will affect them.Grandfathered rates to endFrom Flood,1A Saturday,July 6,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com at the Marathon Moose Lodge First Street Bayside MarathonSaturday, July 13th 5-9 PM Featuring ELVISImpersonator Tim Shepperd25 year local resident & friend, Cathy Supp is in need of a life saving organ Transplant.

Charter school management company Academica runs Somerset, Collegiate and about 60 other schools in South Florida. Oliver is originally from Hustonville, Ill., and has a bachelors and masters degrees from Southern Illinois University along with a masters in educational leadership from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.Key West Collegiate enrollment varies between about 40 and 50 students; the school graduated its first seven-member class last month.Were very excited, Collegiate board Chairman Todd German told the Key n oter I think [Oliver] is going to be excellent for the school. German explained that Oliver was screened and recommended to the board by Academica and that the board conducted an interview before hiring him.Oliver replaces Chris Plantada, who replaced Marianella Mesa, both from mainland Academica schools. Just before Christmas last year then-Principal Adri Stewart, 30, shot herself at the Pembroke Gun and Range on Southwest 19th Street in Pembroke Park, a shock to the schools community.When the school opened in August 2011, Debra Remsen was the principal. Open feuding with the fivemember board, which has turned over several times, marked her tenure, which ended with a demand for her resignation. Ashley Roberts succeeded Remsen and resigned not once but twice, citing, as Remsen did before her, micromanagement by parents sitting on the board. In the aftermath, Academica came into the picture. Founded in 1999, the company operates schools in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, plus schools in California, Texas, Nevada, Utah and Georgia. Jennifer Cleaver filled in between Roberts and Stewart.The company charges $450 per student, but is deferring the fee for Collegiate, for which it has set an enrollment goal of 100 students.7th headmaster since Aug.2011 school openingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST

Married with a couple of small children, we didnt have hardly any money so my family spent the rest of the day along the fills shoreline. Indian Key Fill was, and still is, one of the very, very few open public spaces in Monroe County. Even back then, Keys people complained about the reef rats coming from Miami. Deputies were used to harass people at the fill as much as possible, plain and simple.Now 70 years old, I have been lucky enough to own Monroe County property for 20 years, so I dont use Indian Key Fill. However, when I drive over the fill, I am very happy to see families enjoying a day on the water. If you go there on a summer weekend, you see the people there are mostly families.Along time ago, Indian Key Fill had six picnic shelters and a nice boat ramp. When the road was rebuilt, U.S. 1 was moved to the east and the shelters were removed. There was an agreement that new picnic shelters would be built to the west of the highway. However, those lucky enough to have homes in the Islamorada area didnt want Hispanics from Miami using the area. The ramp was closed and the new shelters were never built. Now its the same thing. The crowd using the Indian Key Fill are mostly Hispanics that cant afford a home in Islamorada. So they go to the Indian Key Fill with their family to enjoy a few hours by the water. Some time ago, almost all the trash cans were removed from the area. The few that remain get full and other people leave the trash in plastic bags next to the full cans. People that want to close Indian Key Fill are the same that want to close the Whale Harbor sandbar, Annes Beach and tried to close Port Antigua Beach. The newspapers should be protecting the right of the people to access public places rather than promoting the desire of some prejudiced people to deprive those less fortunate from their pursuit of happiness. The Florida Department of Transportation shouldnt be part of that. Where is the ACLU? Armando Brana MiamiIncredible assetI would like to take this opportunity to say a big Thank You to one of Key Colony Beachs finest police officers, Colleen Gonzales. Officer Gonzales was the responding officer when I was in need of ambulance transport to Fishermens Hospital. Officer Gonzales was kind and patient during a life-threatening situation. She not only made me feel safe, she called me later that night at the hospital to check on me. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, she had already checked on my family and offered any assistance she could. She continued to check on my progress and offered me a ride home from the hospital.As if all of that were not enough, Officer Gonzales even stopped by my home the following week to check in on my handicapped daughter and myself.What a wonderful person and an incredible asset to our community and our police force. Thank You Colleen Gonzales for such incredible care and dedication. Cecelia Mattino Key Colony BeachGive Edward Snowden credit for sparking a long overdue debate about the extent of government snooping into the private lives and (supposedly) private communications of U.S. citizens. But thats where the credit begins and ends for the 29-year-old former National Security Agency contractor.Mr. Snowden is no hero. Currently on the lam from his surveillance post in Hawaii, he flew to Hong Kong, an outpost of China, and then Moscow, and reportedly plans to go from there to sanctuary in whatever country will have him.Thus, the self-styled apostle of privacy and freedom of information is hop-scotching around the world in pursuit of asylum by seeking shelter in countries that routinely trample on the privacy rights of their own citizens and strike back viciously at critics who refuse to toe the government line. When it comes to evading the consequences of his actions, Mr. Snowdens principles apparently boil down to the old seamans maxim: Any port in a storm. Supporters call Mr. Snowden a courageous whistleblower. Nonsense. Hes a thief who took an oath to safeguard the countrys secrets and then promptly stole those secrets and made them public, ignoring the significant harm that exposure could do to the countrys legitimate need to gather information against actual and potential terrorists.Agenuine whistle-blower exposes wrongdoing, usually of a criminal nature stealing, corruption, shady deals and the like. But what Edward Snowden made public were government programs that, though secret by their very nature, were thoroughly vetted by all branches of the government: approved by Congress, operated by the executive branch, overseen by the courts. There was nothing illegal about them. Yet the secrets exposed by Mr. Snowden are indeed troubling. The governments wholesale reaping of email and telephone call data from private communications companies without notification to the affected parties violates fundamental notions of privacy.The great Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said (in a dissent against government wiretapping) that the greatest American right of all was the right to be let alone. The notion of Big Brother prying into our private communications is anathema to most Americans, and should be. But where was the public revulsion when the laws that set up these programs were under debate? As far back as 2005, the Herald warned in editorials that some provisions of the Patriot Act and the powers granted to a secret court under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) could easily be subject to abuse. That same year, newspapers exposed warrantless wiretapping by the NSA.But despite the ensuing controversy, the government was given sweeping powers to examine private communications. Facing the very real threat of terrorism, the public opted for security over privacy. Now that the secrets are out, its time for a serious debate about striking a balance between privacy and security.One place to begin is curbing the number of people with access to secret information, and restricting the power of individuals like Mr. Snowden to engage in wholesale theft.Another is to demand that the secret court set up by FISAbe more skeptical of government claims. Between 2001 and 2012, the FISAjudges approved 20,909 surveillance and property search warrants and denied just 10 applications. The public needs a watchdog not a lapdog.Miami Herald Overflowing trash barrels after a recent weekend at the Fill.Fencings bad for animalsWe asked our Facebook readers whether barbed-wire fencing on the 18-Mile Stretch of U.S. 1 connecting Key Largo to the mainland is needed to protect wildlife, as the state Department of Transportation maintains. Following are some of your responses.Suzette Truesdell: They are worried about an animal climbing/jumping the fence? Then why are they doing brand new construction of more fencing along the shoreline? It spoils the view and I dont think the dolphins and manatees are going to make a break for it. I think someone got a very lucrative building contract for the fence construction, thats what I think. It makes the road look like youre driving along prison property.Nicky Laak: Fences are unsightly and dangerous to wildlife, as animals will try to get over or under a fence. OTHER VOICESConstruction progresses on marine facilityConstruction of a new $5.6 million marine propulsion building is progressing quickly on Florida Keys Community Colleges main Stock Island campus in advance of a planned October opening.Contractor Ajax Building Corp., with offices in Tallahassee and Jacksonville, started site work in December, laid the foundation in February and the three-story building has taken shape with the addition of concrete tilt walls, which started May 10.The facility was designed by firm Hayes Cummings Architects of St. Petersburg, the same group that planned FKCCs $8.2 million, 100-bed Lagoon Landing dormitory, which opened in August 2011.College spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said faculty and staff from the Marine Science and Technology division were heavily involved in the design process to ensure maximum functionality and learning.We could not be more excited to provide our students with the much-needed, upgraded facility, she said. Ernst-Leonard described the layout: The ground floor will be an open area used for boat and trailer storage. The second floor will be used for instruction and will have two labs and a testing room. The third floor will house two classrooms that can be divided to create four classrooms, a conference room, a shower/locker room, as well as faculty offices.The ground floor and classrooms will be connected with a hoisting system that will allow boat engines to be easily transferred from the storage area right into the diesel lab for the students to work on, Ernst-Leonard said.In the works since 2007, the 30,000-square-foot building was originally slated for a fall 2009 opening and projected to cost around $4 million. The availability of state Public Education Capital Outlay dollars and several redesigns have delayed the project.FKCCs marine program offers classes in seamanship, gasoline and diesel engine repair and maintenance, welding and fiberglass work. Depending on the course track, successful completion can result in an associates degree in marine engineering, management and seamanship or a certificate in marine propulsion.For those interested, the contractor has set up a live webcam showing the construction site; thats available at:http://www.ajaxbuilding .com/fkccmarinewebcam/ .FKCC spending $5.6 million on new buildingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCOMMUNITY COLLEGE Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYAjax Building Corp.has tilt walls in place for FKCCs new marine propulsion building, slated for an October opening.
U.S. mortgage rates have suddenly jumped from nearrecord lows and are adding thousands of dollars to the cost of buying a home. The average rate on the 30-year fixed loan soared this week to 4.46 percent, according to a report Thursday from mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. Thats the highest average in two years and a full point more than a month ago.The surge in mortgage rates follows the Federal Reserves signal that it could slow its bond purchases later this year. Apullback by the Fed would likely send long-term interest rates even higher. In the short run, the spike in mortgage rates might be causing more people to consider buying a home soon. Rates are still low by historical standards, and would-be buyers would want to lock them in before they rise further.But eventually, more expensive home loans could price some people out and slow the housing markets momentum, which has helped drive the U.S. economy over the past year. People are getting off the fence a little bit more or choosing to buy now instead of choosing to buy three months from now, said Anthony Geraci, a Cleveland real estate broker-owner who says hes seeing more sales activity lately in his market.Mortgage rates are rising because they tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, a benchmark for most long-term interest rates. The 10-year yield began rising from near-record lows in May after speculation grew that the Fed might be closer to reducing its bond purchases.In early May, the average rate on a 30-year mortgage was 3.35 percent, just above the record low of 3.31 percent.But rates began to surge and stocks plunged after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke made more explicit comments last week about the Feds plans. He said the Fed would likely scale back its bond buying later this year and end it next year if the economy continued to strengthen.The rate on 30-year loan soared from 3.93 percent last week to 4.46 percent this week the biggest one-week jump in 26 years. The effect on buyerswallets in just the past two months is striking. Abuyer who locked in a 3.35 percent rate in early May on a $200,000 mortgage would pay $881 a month, according to Bankrate.com. The same mortgage at a 4.46 percent rate would run $1,008 a month. The difference: $127 more a month, or $45,720 over the lifetime of the loan. Those figures dont include taxes, insurance or initial down payments. Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia, a real estate data analysis firm, thinks many would-be buyers will start to take note. Some buyers will reconsider jumping into the market; others will speed up their (home) purchases before rates go higher, Kolko said. The rate hike comes at a critical time. Low mortgage rates have helped fuel a housing recovery that has kept the economy growing modestly despite higher taxes and steep federal spending cuts.In May, completed sales of previously occupied homes surpassed the 5 million mark for the first time in 31/2 years. And those sales could rise further in June because the number of people who signed contracts to buy homes rose last month to the highest level since December 2006. Theres generally a oneto two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale.Greater demand, along with a tight supply of homes for sale, has driven up home prices. *Saturday,July 6,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com $100.00COUPON ON ANY PURCHASE OF$1000.00OFF OUR ALREADY LOW SALE PRICESON IN STOCK MERCHANDISE ONLYGood until July 15,2013SUMMERSALEInterior Design Fine Furniture Unique Accessories Pool & Patio Furnishings Mattresses4801 Overseas Hwy (305) 289-2038www.TropicalFurnitureGallery.com MARKETPLACE Recent Real Estate SalesSALES vs. LAST YEAR: 125 percentBased on information from the Florida Keys Board of REALTORS, Inc.

Expanding protected habitat zones on tapAlist of 24 nearshore areas proposed as new habitat-protection areas will be outlined to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuarys Advisory Council at its Tuesday meeting in Islamorada.The presentation by the councils Shallow Water Wildlife and Habitat Protection Working Group will be among issues on the day-long meeting at the Islander Resort, mile marker 82.1. The open meeting begins at 9 a.m.The Shallow Water group presents its 14 pages of recommendations for adding the 24 wildlife areas and modifying 21 existing areas. Two areas proposed at Pelican Shoal and Little Crane Key were listed for elimination. Suggested rule changes at the existing and new locations range from no-entry zones to no-motor or idlespeed areas.The Marathon Guides Association has been trying to get [an-idle speed area] off Vaca Cut for close to 15 years, said Richard Grathwohl, a Marathon flats guide who serves on the Sanctuary Advisory Council and the Shallow Water working group.We tried to get everything worked out by leaving channels for homeowners to run off plane, Grathwohl said. Somethings got to be done. The fish have been pushed to extremes, he said. People dont realize there are tarpon in there so the fish get trounced and run over. If eventually approved as endorsed by the working group, the nearshore area would require idle speed from Vaca Cut to Sombrero Beach, and off Boot Key. Whats come through [the working group] is pretty decent, said Justin Bruland, a Marathon commercial fishermen serving on the panel. We might hear different things from fishermen in other parts of the Keys but its very hard to please everybody, Bruland said. Were trying to do whats best for the environment. The final recommendations that emerge from the Sanctuary Advisory Council for any sanctuary rule changes will be reviewed by federal and state officials before returning to Monroe County for public comment. The earliest that any new zones could take effect would be in mid-2015. The Shallow Water report with the full list of recommended areas can be found online at the website: floridakeys.noaa.gov/review/workgroups.html Also on the agenda will be a presentation of user fees and alternative funding mechanisms suggested as possibilities during the sanctuarys first round of comments in the ongoing management-plan update for the sanctuary that covers 2,900 square nautical miles of marine habitat. Recommendations from the advisory councils Coral Reef Ecosystem Restoration Working Group also will be presented but are not expected to spark controversy.Ascheduled 12:30 p.m. item sees Roy Crabtree, administrator of the NOAAFisheries Service Southeast Region and Jessica McCawley, director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Division of Marine Fisheries Management, discuss South Florida fisheries management.The panel working on possible changes or additions to the sanctuarys network of protected area on or near the coral reef the Ecological Reserves, Preservation Areas and Wildlife Protection Working Group will provide an update Tuesday but is not expected to detail its recommendations. The offshore working group holds two more meetings, on July 11 and July 29 at the Marathon Garden Club, before delivering its report scheduled for the August SAC meeting. SANCTUARYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comThe rainy weather forecast for Fourth of July held off Thursday morning for the 38th Annual Reporter Fourth of July Parade, which celebrated a theme of American Heroes.More than 50 parade floats began the two-mile journey from Anthonys Clothing Store at mile marker 98 to Waldorf Plaza at mile marker 100.Fire and emergency service crews from Key Largo, Tavernier and Islamorada participated in the parade, along with a 20-member pipe and drum band that marched with kilts and bagpipes skirling.Dr. James Boilini led the Parade as Grand Marshal. He was selected in a community essay contest asking Key Largo residents to recognize Local Heroes who do much for the community. Others nominated for the honor served as Parade Judges: Dr. Sandy Yankow, Lt. Jon Kaicher and Lisa and Tony DelosSantos. Yankow is founder of the Good Health Clinic in Key Largo. Lt. Kaicher graduated in May from West Point Military Academy and will report for Army Ranger training this month. And Lisa and Tony DelosSantos represented the Florida Keys Foster Adoptive Parents Association, winning praise for taking so many children into their home and nurturing them as their own. The judges selected seven Parade units for awards: Best Portrayal of Theme The Upper Keys Republican Club Best Emergency Vehicle Tavernier Fire-Rescue Best Musical Parade Entry Upper Keys Sailing Club Most Original Parade Entry Snappers Waterfront Restaurant and Tiki Bar Most Beautiful Parade Entry American Legion Best Business Parade Entry Florida Keys Hot Sauce Parades were also held in Marathon, along with fireworks displays in Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key and Key West. The rain that held back on the Fourth, came back with a vengeance on Friday, however, with many areas in the Keys reporting heavy torrential downpours that caused some isolated street flooding.

Some commissioners said they werent sold on the location. And when it came down to the wire, there werent the five votes required to lease a piece of publicly-owned property. Since then focus has shifted to property on Kennedy Drive next to the Henry Haskins Senior Citizens Plaza and owned by the Key West Housing Authority, another government entity unaffiliated with the city. City Planner Don Craig says the same 110-units proposed by Wendover Housing for the Truman Waterfront will fit on the site just in a different configuration. I just want to make sure we move forward with that, Commissioner Tony Yaniz told City Manager Bob Vitas at Tuesday nights meeting. I think its incumbent on us as a city to start looking at these facilities, maybe more than one. Vitas suggested a measured approach be followed, similar to the process that resulted in selection of Glynn Archer Elementary School for renovation into a new city hall. That process, however, took nearly a decade and involved protracted negotiations between the school board and city officials. I think with any project of that magnitude, Vitas said, there are probably multiple opportunities to be explored. You have to take a look across the entire city. Thats a discussion that has to take place in terms of addressing senior care here in Key West. Vice Mayor Mark Rossi, filling in for the out-of-town Mayor Craig Cates, asked about the possibility of a joint meeting of the commission and Housing Authority board of directors. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley was also absent.North RooseveltCommissioners received an update on the ongoing $41.5 million reconstruction of the three-mile-long North Roosevelt Boulevard. Project spokesman Dean Walters said contractor The de Moya Group, hired by the Florida Department of Transportation, is more than 50 percent complete with the rebuild and set for a September 2014 completion. That would total more than 800 days of construction. Walters responded to the widespread allegations that the contractor re-used beat up sheet pile in construction of the roadside seawall. Those sheet pilings in question were used to shore up the sides of the deep trenches being dug at Eisenhower Drive to protect the workers. Only properly coated sheet pilings that meet specifications are being used on our seawalls, he said.Pain ClinicsAnd the commission passed into law creation of a new zoning designation for pain management clinics and requires the Planning Board and City Commission to approve a conditional-use for any proposed clinics. Conditional-use determination considers 10 criteria, including economic effects, consistency with the citys comprehensive plan and public interest. Other areas in Florida including Coral Springs, Cooper City, Deerfield Beach, Margate, Broward County and Palm Beach County have similar laws.For senior housing not on waterfrontBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTAmerican Heroes celebrated at paradeFOURTH OF JULY Keynoter photos by KEVIN WADLOWIts red,white and blue for kids riding in the Dolphin Research Center float.Boy Scout Troop 588 marches for Operation Christmas Child in the 38th Annual Reporter Fourth of July Parade.

District 8 Tournament could win the pennant today with a win over Liberty City. Coached by Tony Gregis and Bryan OBerry, the Upper Keys (2-0) plays Liberty City at 9 a.m. at Claude Pepper Park in North Miami. Apair of solid pitching performances carried the Upper Keys team to the lead of the three-team district in a June 29 doubleheader. Pitchers Nick Perez and Sean Walters shut down North Miami Beach in the opener. The Upper Keys held a 10-0 lead before the Beach squad scored.Keys hitters notched at least two runs in every inning before the game was called in the middle of the fourth.Defense, pitching and timely hitting made the difference in a 5-1 win over Liberty City in the days second game. Liberty City knotted the game at 1-1 in the fourth inning before hits by Ty Harrelson, Andres Albarracin and Perez powered a rally.Walters threw just 19 pitches in his two innings against Miami Beach, so he was able to start the second game to deliver two more scoreless innings. Jose Lima tossed three scoreless innings in relief to close it out.

The Red Barn production stars Bob Bowersox, Connie Hurst, Matt Hollis Hulsey and Susannah Wells. Rebecca Tomlison is directing.Its a powerful play, Tomlinson said, and is considered Albees masterpiece, and we have a cast that is hitting it head-on. If you love theatre, Virginia Woolf will knock you over. Albee won Pulitzer Prizes and three Tony for his work. Stones comingThe second week of Key West Summer Stage brings the hilarious Irish hit Stones in his Pockets, by Marie Jones. The play stars David Black and Quincy Perkins in a tour-de-force for Actors. The duo play no less than 13 characters between them, each distinctly different than the last. The story follows a major Hollywood production filming in a small Irish town, and the consequences of those two cultures clashing. Perkins will direct the play, which holds the distinction of being a smash hit in Londons West End, Dublin, Edinburgh, Belfast, and New York.The final Main Stage show for this summer series is Lanford Wilsons Burn This, the Broadway smash that brought John Malkovich to national prominence. It runs July 23-27. Burn This tells the story of a choreographer, her gay roommate, and her screenwriter boyfriend bent on marriage. Into this mix explodes a young man profane, menacing, dangerous, and yet oddly sensitive who changes the lives of each of them.The Red Barn production stars Melody Moore, Matt Hollis Hulsey, Michael Aaglan and Bob Bowersox.

Diana Flenard, executive director of MARC House, said about 40 percent of current clients in Monroe County are seeing cuts to their allocations. MARC House provides adult day training program, companion services and transportation for persons with disabilities throughout the Keys. Because of the way Florida now funds the Medicaid waiver program, the average client in Monroe will see a cut of about $5,000, Flenard said. iBudget Florida, funded through the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), was intended to give clients better access and more choices, she added. Instead, clients are forced to choose which services they can continue on limited resources. In practice, that means families must choose losing adult day training, where clients get job training and employment opportunities; lose companion services, where clients are taken into the community to learn skills of daily living and socialization; or, lose transportation services now provided by MARC House. Pantaleo said others in the community are getting involved, including Mike Forster of Mangrove Mikes, whos tackling the transportation problem. And we hope to raise enough to do something more for MARC in the Upper Keys. They really need to help, Pantaleo said. MARC clients currently produce a jewelry line and the Thrift Store provides jobs for the disabled, along with employment working the cash register. And MARC clients also work at Harry Harris Park doing beach cleaning services for the county.Pantaleo said hes working with Wells sister and brother on the Millard Wells Days and the family has been very supportive, along with help from Forster and others, including Angela Martin. The Millard Wells LookAlike Competition, planned as part of Saturdays street fair, has the potential to become an annual event similar to Hemingway Days in Key West, he said. This is about continuing the lineage of the arts and starting something that we can do for the community. Its a heartfelt thing. And its not just about Islamorada. Were hoping to grow this into Key Largo and down south as well. He said Millard Wells was one of the first wellknown artists to stake out a claim to this area Islamorada and we want to keep his name associated with this area and with the Arts District. Acontest for artists to honor Wells vision will be held on Sunday, July 21, along with a presentation of gifts to the Wells family and to MARC.

The wind was at a steady 15 knots out ofthe south and seas were predicted to be from3-5 feet on average, higher around thenumerous showers. The conditions were notgreat, but the boys wanted to be on the waterno matter what. Locally, these conditions are known asRum Front Conditions our tropical ren-dition of a snow day. Most adventure coordinators will suggestholding off on excursions until the weatherclears, but some will run the trip if theclients are hardy and willing. There was nodoubt this group was tough. The seas were already up in Key WestHarbour, allowing only 12 knots on thePremium Time, any faster and a snorkel andmask would have had to be worn. These types of days however, with thiskind of unsettled weather are the real mem-ory makers. Fish react to barometric pres-sure and when a developing low isapproaching, the light switch turns on withan emphasis on the larger predators. Theyseem to get more aggressive and less awareof the angling game that requires their reluc-tant participation.At the Key West Channel Sea Buoy thespread was being deployed by Captain SethHopp and his brother Captain Austin Hopp.The spread never made it to completion as thecero mackerel, bonito and schoolie dolphinate like Vikings. The mad dog bite was on. Time after time for the next hour thespread was penetrated bycareless creatures lookingto kill something. The skybecame dark and the seasturned black as a big fishate followed by a bonito.Whatever was smoking thethirty wide Internationalbecame Jeffs challengeand Brian would handle thebonito. The rain concealedany surface activity fromthe larger fish and the wind mixed with hori-zontal rain kept the Premium Timeat a neces-sary downwind direction.This portion of the trip was the highlight.Taking the brunt of Mother Nature whilehooked up to a beast will be talked aboutthrough the generations of Leonards guaran-teed. We never did see the fish and after a 20minute battle, we pulled the hook. Soakingwet and losing the big fish was of no conse-quence to Jeff or his sons, so we pressed on. The rain was slowing but the winds werepicking up and this group wanted to dosome bottom fishing. The first drift on thedeep ledge pushed the largest yelloweyesnapper over the edge committed to eating astrip of bonito. As the fish was pho-tographed, I realized it was the biggest yel-loweye we had caught recently, a large spec-imen for Key West. Moving to one of the shallower wrecks, thesame story held true on the troll around thestructure as well as fishing the bottom to theside of the relief. The fish were eating differ-ently and more aggressively here. We even hada large bull shark that smiled for the camerasprior to release. The rum front delivered again. Here are some rough and unsettledweather tips:1. If you suffer from high anxiety thistype of experience is not for you. The seaswere as high as eight feet on this particularday and came in sets of three settling back to3-5. The boat never skipped a beat but yourheart might if you ever saw the PerfectStorm and were petrified. White water isnot for everybody.2. Avoid the lightning and thunderheadsif you can. Monitor the radar online on yoursmart phone when you have signal or youronboard installed radar electronics. 3. Think about your exit plan if it getsunbearable. In this case, the seas were fromthe south allowing a following sea back tothe dock. We stayed out a full eight hours.Try not to allow a large weather cell to wedgeitself between your vessel and your dock. 4. Inclement weather is a way of life herein the Florida Keys. Understanding theweather patterns is an important step towater confidence. Its going to shine, rain,blow and then shine again at any given timeduring a Florida Keys Summer.Out of all these suggestions the mostimportant is this one......fish BIG. Expect thelarger fish to present themselves more oftenthan normal in these anomalies. Learning the nature of the subtropicalweather in the Florida Keys will allow youto spend more time On the Water.Capt.
