DRY TORTUGASProposed rules draw pushbackConcerns about some over the top proposals and calls for additional protected areas reached Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary advisers Tuesday as they considered potential rule changes for local waters.Whoever thought we would see guys with [water] jet packs flying around, and kiteboarders? asked Sanctuary Advisory Council member Bruce Popham, presenting the findings of the Shallow Water Wildlife and Habitat Protection Working Group at the Islander Resort in Islamorada.We didnt think about this five years ago, Popham said. Weve got party zones, Jet Ski tours and eco-tour groups.No decisions were made on the proposed 27 new nearshore areas and changes to 21 existing areas that were recommended by the working group for the sanctuarys updated management plan.Popham said despite his years of Keys boating, he was blown away by the effect that boating could have on critical bird-nesting habitat.Marathon guide Jeff Knapp said he found a proposal for an idle-speed area running along much of Marathons Atlantic shoreline unbelievable. I dont think there is damage out there to justify that, Knapp said in public comments. We hear about regulations, fees and closures. Alot of it seems to be really over the top.Michael McLoad, representing a coalition of Lower Matecumbe Key homeowner associations, urged the sanctuary to include a bayside shallow area that has been drawing large weekend crowds.During summer, there are 100-plus boats there every weekend. There is anchor damage and scarring,Some say management plans possible revisions would be too restrictiveFLORIDA KEYS NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY Photo by GLENN SIMPSON/FLORIDA PARK SERVICEA Dry Tortugas National Park staffer examines the rocket part,which may be a piece of fairing.Manufacturing plates indicate it came from an Arianespace launch in the past few years.Remnant of rocket washes upIts not uncommon to find spent fireworks around the Fourth of July, but what shark researchers found floating in the shallows of the isolated Dry Tortugas last week wasnt just another burnt-out bottle rocket.It was a chunk of a real rocket the size of a small swimming pool a remnant of a mission sometime in the past two years by Arianespace, a European consortium that specializes in commercial satellite launches.The expendable rockets are supposed to break up and sink when they crash in the Atlantic Ocean after launch from a spaceport in French Guiana. But a piece of this one survived intact and drifted hundreds of miles, beaching on low tide along Long Key, one of the small islands ringing Fort Jefferson, the spectacular Civil War era outpost erected on Garden Key some 70 miles west of Key West.Thats where Wes and Theo Pratt found it on July 4. The Pratts, who spend a month in the Tortugas every year studying the mating habits of nurse sharks, had kayaked the half-mile from Garden Key to watch sharks mingle in Long Keys unspoiled shallows. Instead, they found a large and curious object stuck in the sand, parts of it bristling with barnacles.At first I thought it was a commercial airplane part, said Wes Pratt, an adjunct scientist at the Mote Marine Tropical Research Laboratory on Summerland Key.They couldnt budge the thing, even with help from a ranger at Dry Tortugas National Park. Worried it might damage boats in the forts harbor or pose a navigation hazard, they tied a light to it and waited for high tide. It floated off late that night and was towed to the forts dock.Glenn Simpson, the parks manager, who has a background in archaeology, immediately got on the computer to research its origins. Besides the partial word nespa in two-foot-tall letters on its exterior, there were several manufacturing plates, including one with a receiving date of October 2012. Based on that and Arianespace launch dates, Simpson figures it was likely one of four launches since November 2012. Barnacle growth seems to rule out the most recent launch, only a month ago, but some sea life can grow quickly. The aluminum piece weighs several hundred pounds, but Simpson and Pratt speculate it was kept afloat by insulating foam and a honeycombed metal core between its inner and outer skins that trapped air. Aaron Lewis, communications director for Arianespace Inc. in Washington, D.C., the consortiums affiliate in the United States, reviewed photos and said it was without a doubt from an Ariane 5 rocket.

Less than a month after Keys Energy Services hooked the first No Name home up to the grid following extended court battles, the Browns became the first homeowners there to sell energy back to the Lower Keys utility. The couple signed up for Keys Energys renewable energy net-metering option, which has been offered since 2008. It involves the installation of a special meter that monitors consumption and energy sold back to the utility when more is produced than used.

Chelsea was rescued May 12 off Big Pine Key. She was found floating and suffering from a stomach impaction. When a turtle has an impaction, an infection grows in its intestinal tract and causes gas to build up, which compromises the turtles ability to float. Chelsea was treated with lactulose and beano to alleviate her impaction.Money scam alleges utility bills dueThe Florida Keys Electric Cooperative and Monroe County Sheriffs Office warn that a scammer conned at least one victim out of close to $800 by claiming to be a collection agent working for the utility. The FKEC stresses it does not employ contractors to collect bill payments. If you are called by someone saying he or she is with the FKEC wanting money, hang up and call the utility at 852-2431. Deputy Becky Herrin, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman, said the victim was an employee of the Kaiyo Grill in Islamorada.

Mary was a 1972 graduate of Hampton High School in Virginia and a 1976 Asian Studies graduate from the University of Virginia. Fluent in Mandarin, she spent much of her professional life in Taiwan where she founded the Taipei Art Guild, and later worked for an import/export firm on mainland China. She is an artist in her own right, and settled in Marathon in 1997 to pursue a second career with her own ceramics business. She is pre-deceased by her parents Colonel John L. Crawley, Jr. (U.S. Army/Ret) and Katharine Ely Champlain Crawley of Hampton, Virginia. She is survived by her loving partner, Douglas DiStasio of Marathon, Florida; her brother, John L. Crawley III and his wife, Tracey, of Newport News, Virginia; a nephew, John, of Hampton, Virginia; and a niece, Danielle, of Knoxville, Tennessee. Family and friends will gather to celebrate Marys life later this summer. amazing considering the heat, Kathy Brown said. Shes president of the No Name Key Property Owners Association, which has long sought commercial power on the island. The groups contentious struggle with the islands solar proponents, who had fought against commercial electricity, officially ended when Brad and Beth Vickreys house was connected to the grid on May 29. Brown says she filled out a series of documents that involve certifying the system is up to code and that all its components work together with the grid. Keys Energy reviewed the system and issued her a contract, she said.Bob and Kathy Brown purchased their No Name property in 1989, the same year as another solar power enthusiast, Dan Morris. They each built homes and received certificates of occupancy in 1990. Kathy Brown said that readily available electricity, as opposed to using just solar and generators, has been a big change and takes some getting used to. You wake up and [first thing], you see if the house is still on and check how many amp hours you have in the batteries to see what you can and cant do. I keep doing that, but I dont have to, Brown said. Its so much less stressful, but were all staying conscious of limiting our usage. According to Monroe County Senior Planner Emily Schemper, the county has issued 13 electrical permits to No Name residents and one more has submitted an application thats under review. There are 43 homes on No Name. Keys Energy spokesman Julio Barroso said that as of July 3, the utility had connected 11 homes to the grid. Barroso says net-metering allows Keys Energy to buy back excess energy produced by privately owned renewable energy systems within its service area. The Browns became the 29th Keys Energy customer to sign up for net-metering. They produce an estimated 250,000 kilowatt hours of power annually. While renewable energy systems are not yet affordable for all, [the] net-metering option is helping to ease the transition as customers go green, said Keys Energy General Manager Lynne Tejeda. One of the main benefits of the electrification of [No Name Key] is that those customers can now sell back any excess power they produce on their renewable energy systems and we in turn can share that power with our other customers.Power sold backFrom Power,1AMcLoad said. Come see this carnival. Its pretty wild.Peggy Mathews of the American Watercraft Association said the sanctuary needs to unveil a map showing all the areas.People need a big picture, she said. What is the definition of a party zone? ... Let people understand what youre trying to do. You say youre protecting resources, but thats pretty broad.Later, she pointed to a suggested tarpon migration lane that could lead to idlespeed rules in water less than 10 feet deep in areas from Key West to Marathon during the spring months. The working group deferred a recommendation on the migration lane. Water less than 10 feet covers a lot of area, she said. Thats crazy. Ken Nedimyer presented the report from the Coral Reef Ecosystem Restoration Working Group, which aims to streamline rules that cover regulations on coralrestoration nurseries and reef sites undergoing restoration.David Vaughn and Nedimyer said recommendations may include temporary limited-access sites during active restoration at one of the 37 reefs considered high priority for coral replantings.Were not going to be closing a whole reef and taking away somebodys favorite dive site, Nedimyer said. These are small areas and nothing happens until we get the permits and the funding. This is more than protecting the resources and hoping Mother Nature brings it back, Vaughn said. This is active restoration.The Ecosystem Protection Working Group considering possible additions to the Preservation Areas at the Keys reef meets twice more in July before presenting its findings to the full advisory council in August.Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton recommended the advisory council meet for three days in mid-November to finalize its proposals for the new management plan.Adecision on that session was delayed after some council members said it would be difficult to commit three weekdays during a busy season.Any recommendations forwarded by the Sanctuary Advisory Council this winter will go to public hearings and reviews by state and federal officials. No new rules will take effect before the summer of 2015.BroadtalksFrom Sanctuary,1A designed to protect the payload and improve aerodynamics. Arianespace typically launches satellites for companies like DirecTV. Once the rocket clears the atmosphere, its pieces separate and fall into an isolated area of the Atlantic between South America and Africa well away from any population concerns, Lewis said.The pieces typically sink, he said, but remnants occasionally wash up. Afairing piece from a NASArocket, for instance, washed up in Hilton Head, S.C., in 2010 several months after a launch.The find made for an exciting Fourth in the quiet Tortugas, typically home to no more than a few staffers, visiting researchers and campers who ferry over from Key West. Fireworks arent allowed in the park but, said Simpson, We had this. It made our day. Now the question is what to do with the rocket part. The park service, perpetually short of funds, would appreciate help defraying the cost of ferrying it back to Key West.Pratt, the shark researcher, said the company also might want to study the chunk and figure out why it didnt sink.What to do with it?From Rocket,1A Userfees possible formarine systemCiting higher needs and lower government budgets, members of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council raised the controversial topic of user fees Tuesday.Its a difficult road to slog but I think theres a lot of support for doing something, Council Chairman Ken Nedimyer said at the groups meeting at the Islander Resort in Islamorada. Council member Rob Mitchell, an Upper Keys dive operator, supports the concept but expects a hailstorm of opposition. The only alternative is watching our reefs continue to decline, Mitchell said. People are using the resource for free. Weve got to make a move and take a stand now. The council has no regulatory authority, and would need approval from both the state and federal governments. The approval process likely would take years, Mitchell said. If we dont get started, it will never get going. Every year the sanctuary budget gets cut, Nedimyer said At press time, council discussion on forming a working group to explore possible funding systems continued. Proceeds could be dedicated to increased marine law enforcement, coral restoration, mooring buoys and other projects directly benefiting reef survival, member said. I dont think it will get support if a nickel is spent outside the Florida Keys, said Joe Weatherby, a dive operator and council member. Weve got way more issues that we can pay for. Council members Richard Grathwohl and Weatherby said any user fee could not target only commercial operators. Everybody who enters the water pays, Weatherby said.Possible ways of collecting the fee were discussed, such as medallion-style programs or surcharges on fishing and boating licenses.User fees were discussed during writing of the original Keys management plan but the issue was put aside. No other federal marine sanctuaries impose user fees. But it always comes up, said Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton. Some Caribbean nations impose fees to use marine parks.But the talk for sanctuary is preliminaryFLORIDA KEYS NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comJail for yellowtail anglerAcommercial fishing captain who reeled in hundreds of yellowtail snapper from a marine reserve in the protected Dry Tortugas received a 45-day jail sentence in Monroe County Court.Evelio Lazar Egusquiza Fornes, 49, of Miami was arrested Feb. 12 after Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers found his yellowtail boat, the Candelaria with lines in the water inside the Tortugas Ecological Reserve. Originally, the FWC crew aboard the long-range patrol boat Peter Gladding lodged more 1,300 conservation violations against Egusquiza and mate Jorge Nesto Gellart, 49. One count was filed for each of the 664 yellowtail found on the boat or on hooks. After Egusquiza pleaded guilty to two counts fishing inside the ecological reserve and taking fish from the area prosecutors dropped dozens of other charges at the July 1 sentencing. County Judge Wayne Miller also ordered Egusquiza to serve six months probation, pay fines and court costs, and forfeit $2,588.70 from the sale of the 781 pounds of illegally taken snapper.It is no wonder they were able to catch as many [fish] as they did, Monroe County Assistant State Attorney Colleen Dunne said. Where they were fishing is a known spawning site for grouper and snapper.Its an ecological preserve set up to allow natural spawning and replenishment of the fishery, Dunne said. Thats why its prohibited. FWC Lt. Joshua Peters and Officer Raul Testimony testified at sentencing that the defendants admitted knowing they were in the northern ecological reserve. The Tortugas reserves were established to protect the areas marine ecosystem from effects of harvesting marine life, including fish. Commercial boats can navigate through the zones but cannot stop if they have fish aboard. Gellart pleaded guilty earlier this spring. He was unable to post bond after the February arrest and spent 52 days in custody before his case was settled. He was sentenced to time served, plus probation and court costs.781 pounds illegally taken in the TortugasIN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffDog-death suspect due in court todayAKey West man charged last month with felony animal cruelty after his tick-infested dog Snarf, a Pomeranian, died of neglect is due in court today.Bartender Daniel Doane, 26, was arrested June 21 following the June 5 death of Snarf, who was found at the White Street Pier barely able to walk and covered in ticks.Doanes due in front of Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller at 8:45 a.m. at the Freeman Justice Center for arraignment.The Monroe County Sheriffs Office said the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Detective Dave Chavka found that Doane repeatedly neglected and failed to care for the dog over a 10-month period, Deputy Becky Herrin said.Snarf had already been turned in to the SPCA twice once in September and again in April after he was found wandering unattended. Both times, Snarf was severely infested with fleas and ticks, was filthy and suffered from rotten teeth.On June 5, Snarf was found near the pier. He was picked up by SPCA, but died before staff could even get him to the animal shelter.Herrin said examinations of the dogs body revealed tick infestation caused his death. The dog had severe infestation of fully engorged ticks too numerous to count and experienced excessive pain and suffering.Herrin said Doane told Chavka he knew the dog and his home were infested with ticks but did nothing about it.Hes accused of allowing death by ticksIN THE COURTS DOANEKeynoter Staff
Asecond gathering in as months of Keyswide government officials to figure out how to spend tens of millions of dollars in sewer-construction money is set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Key Colony Beach City Hall. Convened by state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo), this latest session isnt about how to split up a second $50 million from the state, but the mechanics of spending it. We have things to hash out, she said Tuesday. We have some homework to do. One, how we move forward with the next $50 million. The money to which she refers would be the second of four $50 million installments allocated but not appropriated by the state. The first $50 million came out of last years state budget.That was split between Monroe County ($30 million) and Islamorada ($20 million).The next $50 million if it comes would have Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District each getting $20 million, with smaller amounts for the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, Key West and Key Colony each.Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature have made it clear that any state money for sewers would have to go to shovel-ready projects not to pay down debt. But Marathon and Key Largo are nearly done with their central sewer systems and its the debt for which they need money.The estimated cost of Marathons sewer system is $101 million. For Key Largo, its $150 million. We need to come up with a plan for locally how to use infrastructure tax money, Raschein said. That could be more flexible. I think there are still some questions and answers out there.that a united front would be established to lead the effort for Cubas independence from Spain, according to the institutes website.I suggested this 10 years ago and its a dream come true, Penalver said of partnering with the college. One of the primary missions of the San Carlos when it was founded was freedom through education. Ideas and knowledge can be even more powerful than bullets or war. The San Carlos stands for this humanistic philosophy. Julio Barroso, a San Carlos board member, recounted how his mother attended preschool at the center in the 1960s. Its nice to see the educational tradition return, he said. College President Jonathan Gueverra and Penalver ceremoniously signed a use agreement. Its a great honor, Gueverra said, mentioning increased access to potential students the site provides. Thats even though the institute is just 5.6 miles from the colleges Stock Island campus.Ernst-Leonard said classes to be offered in Old Town for the fall semester are introduction to business, U.S. history and college algebra. Non-credit offerings are still being decided, she said.

Her goal is to raise $60,000 by Aug. 1 using www.kickstarter.com The money would pay for production expenses for the One Race, Cuba and Key West exhibition. Frank, owner of the Gallery on Greene, said community support would be great insuring paintings for shipment and display in Cuba alone would cost $10,000 but her commitment to the project is such that shes prepared to make up the difference. The Cubans that came to Key West were essentially utopians and they strongly believed in gender, racial and religious equality. Ive wanted to do this show for decades, she said.Her plan is to begin a series of residencies in February in Key West by Cuban artists including Manuel Mendive, Robert Fabelo, Rocio Garica and others.Their works will be featured around town at venues such as the Ernest Hemingway House and Museum, Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, the Studios of Key West and the former Gato Cigar Factory. In Cuba, Frank has arranged a three-month exhibit with the Museo Nacional Bellas Artes in Havana featuring a collection of 30 Mario Sanchez paintings and set to launch on Jan. 17. Frank studied under Sanchez and is considered an expert in his work.Sanchez, a first generation Cuban-American born in Key West in 1908, documented day-to-day life in the Southernmost City with renderings of the cigar and fishing industries in his works called intaglios, essentially carved and then painted wood.His art was displayed in New York City for the first time last year in conjunction with the American Folk Art Museum, Museum of the City of New York and the South Street Seaport Museum.Since launching her fundraiser July 2, Frank has received pledges of $320.Gallery owner is fundraising to realize itBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST This Mario Sanchez painting shows the folk artistsdepiction of the old Key West courthouse.Airline passengers cheer mans arrestYou would think that in 2013, airline passengers would know its pretty serious business to mess with the flight crew. Think again.The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says a Tampa salesman was so hell-bent on using his personal electronics aboard a Silver Airways flight to Key West International Airport Saturday when repeatedly told not to that he refused to allow a flight attendant to pass through the aisle and made a lewd gesture at her. He also used loud and abusive language, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says.That landed Richard Calderoni, 50, in jail on the surprisingly light charge of disturbing the peace after other passengers cheered when he was cuffed and arrested, the Sheriffs Office says.Deputy Becky Herrin says Calderoni was asked several times to shut off his electronic equipment and refused. He was reportedly loud and used abusive language. At one point, he stretched his legs into the aisle blocking the female flight attendants path. He told her she must be miserable in her joband she said when she looked at him, he was rubbing his groin area as if he were masturbating.She said the pilot told Sgt. Sue Morgan he considered turning the flight around, but considered the other passengers and decided to call ahead for law enforcement. When the plane landed, it was met by the Sheriffs Office and several others from airport security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. After his arrest and the cheering, a number of [passengers] told the officers they were afraid on the flight because of Calderonis disruptive behavior Herrin said.Calderoni was released from jail following his booking.

Sewer system more costlyHere is the scorecard so far re: The Cudjoe Regional sewer system: Cudjoe, Summerland and Upper Sugarloaf keys get about 600 grinder pumps, and Big Pine, Ramrod, Big Torch Little Torch and lower Sugarloaf keys get almost 2,200 more. What do the rest of the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority sewer customers get? Amillion dollars a year in extra operating costs for at least 40 years. To date, I have focused on Cudjoe Gardensproblems, but the problem is even greater elsewhere. Very densely populated subdivisions on Big Pine, Ramrod, Big Torch, Little Torch and lower Sugarloaf keys will be affected and they dont know it yet. When we learned about the proposed mix of low-pressure grinder pumps and gravity systems in January, we were stunned. Over the next five months, I did extensive research, analysis and modeling. All of it showed the planned system made no sense; it was uneconomic in both the short and long term. I finally estimated that it will cost all of the ratepayers in the FKAA system about $1 million per year in additional sewer fees. The county claims it cannot not tell the FKAAwhat to do; it is helpless. Officials also said there are no funds available. However, the recently passed extension of the infrastructure sales tax is slated to collect almost $200 million and its wording states ...the proceeds [will be] used for the following projects: wastewater facilities and, only if those wastewater projects are completed or fully funded, recreation, etc.... Grinder pumps should be a last resort for moving sewage to a central facility. Nationally, there are about 100 million homes and about half a percent use grinder pumps. Many coastal communities will not even consider them because they do not do well in salt air or major storms. The FKAAproposes that 30 percent of the Cudjoe Regional system use grinder pumps. While the residents of Cudjoe Key have a problem with 300 grinders, the rest of the customers will have an even bigger problem. Walter Drabinski Cudjoe KeyNatural sites availableI was raised to believe there are always two sides to an argument. However, I recently discovered that there could be a third side. The press seems to have covered the first two sides of the issue fairly well but has totally neglected the third side which, strangely enough, could resolve the issues of the first two sides. The first side would like to place bike paths and research stations within state parks in Key Largo. The second side opposes any such installations Now we come to the third side (mine), which I have provided to the state and a local reporter and placed on the public record at a meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center. I got a positive reception by both of the first two sides. South of John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park, the state owns four tracts of land extending from the ocean to the highway. The four tracts are contiguous and could become a nature preserve under the supervision of the Pennekamp park manager. The four tracts are composed of a variety of types of growth such as wetlands, hammocks, uplands and scarified designations. Each area would support different types of activities from elevated boardwalks, nature trails and possibly the proposed bike paths and educational research center. Preliminary research supports these possibilities. Howard Gelbman Key LargoKids still in perilI was a house parent in a residentialcare home for foster children in Key West for almost five years. In 2011, I wrote a letter to David Wilkins, who had just been appointed secretary of the state Department of Children and Families.I had two concerns: The licensed group home had seven teenage boys and girls in three bedrooms. I was especially worried the boys slipped into the girls bedroom early one morning for a beer party (maybe this is why the community-based-care office sent our girls home one day with bags of colored condoms).As for my second concern, I wrote: Afinal request is that all people and transporting vehicles of precious abused and abandoned children not reek with smoked tobacco odor. Neither Wilkins nor his staff responded. But Gov. Rick Scott has publicly embraced Wilkins after the deaths of four small kids in DCFs system in six weeks under his DCF watch.

I told them, but I doubt they knew, that their trees held a number of dove nests that were left on the ground with the fallen limbs. Arent tree companies required to check for nests? The dove: Asymbol of Jesus. I dont think they made the connection. Afriend was being a good guy and cleaned our yard, taking out a dead palm. There was a woodpecker nest in it. Do the utility companies have to check for birds before switching from wood to concrete poles? In so many things today, we dont make the connection, like in how the animals we eat are treated or how our daily energy use adds to pollution. But I digress. I just want to know who is responsible to clean the unsightly and dangerous fishing line from Sugarloaf to Bahia Honda and why they arent doing it. We have all seen it. In the beauty of a sunrise backdrop, it sparkles. While observing the changes along our multimillion-dollar bike path, it is right there. It is everywhere someone fishes from a bridge next to utility lines. It is in the water, too. Ayear ago, I wrote to ATTthinking it was them and pointed to headlines showing a pelican rescued from the dangling line. I have also met with state officials and asked them to put up signs asking anglers to under vs. overhand cast, but nothing has ever come of it. Whose job is it? There is a machine to do it and yet they havent done it for years. If you have never seen one of our native birds dangling from a mangrove with one wing completely wrapped with fishing line, or a sea turtle with line wrapped around its flipper obviously having struggled desperately until its last breath to free itself, it might be hard to make the connection. But the connection is there. And there is danger to wildlife in both the air and sea. Lets get it done. Whoever you are, please be responsible. Lynda Schuh Sugarloaf KeySome make sense for security and safety, but one stands out as merely politics as usualThe next time you plan to visit your neighborhood school, be prepared to be frisked. No, not really. But under a new state law that went into effect last week, visitors to public schools in Florida will be subject to background screening. And non-instructional contractors on school grounds will eventually have to carry an identification badge. This new, get-tougher policy coincides with another new law that went into effect July 1 adding private schools to the list that first responders are required to notify in event of an emergency. As Florida continues to encourage more charter schools, the percentage of the school population that falls outside existing safety networks caused the Legislature to react this year. Another safety-related issue that lawmakers tackled involves a crackdown on cyberbullying, expanding the reach of school districts in tackling this, even if the incident takes place off school property. The new law also toughens district suspension and expulsion powers.Amore controversial law involves the ongoing legislative push for teacher accountability tied to performance.To date, virtually no school district has created a measurement system that satisfies all the stakeholders, whether parents worried about the quality of education for their own kids or teachers who raise fears of unfair comparisons and competition. Add in administrators, who dread having one more contentious issue to manage along with many other state mandates. As it stands, the Legislature requires all districts have some mechanism in place for the coming year that has at least 50 percent of a classroom teachers or school administrators performance evaluation tied directly to growth or achievement of students under their charge. The other half of the evaluation can be based on district-level plans. Here in the Keys, Superintendent Mark Porter and the United Teachers of Monroe union negotiating team have met multiple times. But so far, most of the discussions have been about past grievances, including unpaid furlough days, and less about how to create and implement a pay-for-performance model that works. Lawmakers far removed from the classroom sit in Tallahassee and pass laws they think will help, when it turns out political agendas dominate this push. Sadly, the kids and their needs too often get sidelined which defeats the whole purpose of pay-for-performance. The Legislatures own grade point average is dipping ever closer to F. And if lawmakers were judged on payfor-performance right now, most would have to give back their salaries for critical work left undone.Wayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

Birds often get entangled in discarded fishing line.At most of the old Keys bridges,there are repositories where anglers can discard their used fishing line rather than just leave it as trash.

Virtually no school district has created a system that satisfies all the stakeholders. Strategic planbackOvershadowed by competing priorities, Monroe County School District Superintendent Mark Porters efforts at longterm strategic planning are back on the front burner after a two-month hiatus.In March and April, he assembled and convened two meetings of a 45-member strategic planning committee, which arrived at six broad goals that were referred to subcommittees. After what he called unanticipated delays, Porter said the process will resurface on July 22. Thats the date Porter has set for a validation session beginning 6 p.m. at Marathon High School. The subcommittees will present specific efforts that can be taken in support of each goal. Porter said the unanticipated delays amount to demands on my time attributable to the unanticipated early departures of members of the executive leadership team that resulted in additional duties and responsibilities that I had to pick up. In March, Porter notified then-Human Resources Director Cheryl Allen and then-Finance Director Michael Kinneer that their contracts would not be renewed, prompting the two administrators to cash in accrued leave and cut out earlier than planned. In a scramble, Porter hired temporary help while searching for long-term replacements. Now, The strategic planning process is back on track, Porter said.Currently there are six action teams working on each of the identified strategic objectives: Outstanding student achievement, effective communication and community engagement, high-performing workforce, leading in technology and innovation, accountable resource management and climate and culture for excellence.School Board member John Dick said he understands the desire to lay longterm plans but questions the need given constantly evolving standards handing down by the Florida Department of Education and Legislature.The state makes drastic changes every couple of years and its subject to current politics, whoever the governor is, he said. We also have local issues hurricanes and charter schools that can preclude long-term plans.Porter said the July 22 meeting would result in a final strategic plan and Year 1 action plan that would go to the School Board for approval first in a workshop on Aug. 13.

Various comprehensive plans and land development regulations passed by Monroe County, and later the city of Marathon, have rendered the island unbuildable and classified it as a bird rookery. The island is bayside off Grassy Key. Tobin argued that the eight building rights included when the island was purchased indicate reasonable investment-backed expectations for the property.Should the court decide in the Beyersfavor, it would mean the case returns to local Circuit Court for a third time.In 2008, Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin granted summary judgment in favor of the city, ruling the Beyers exceeded a four-year statute of limitations to argue for the islands building rights.The Third DCAoverruled Audlin, saying the island could be used for camping and other recreational uses and has transferable development rights. But according to the city, the Beyers never attempted to present evidence of any planned development once the case was remanded back to Circuit Court. The city and state once again moved for summary judgment against the Beyers. It was granted Feb. 29, 2012. Tobin argued before the Third DCAin June that the Beyers were never notified of zoning changes over the years, and therefore had no chance to defend their rights. When you pass a comprehensive plan and publish it in the newspaper, thats considered sufficient notice, he said. When you downzone a specific piece of property, youre supposed to get personal notice. The law does not require that property owners get specific notice. For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

Employers tweaking same-sex benefitsThe U.S. Supreme Courts landmark ruling on same-sex marriage has private employers around the country scrambling to make sure their employee benefit plans comply with the law.The impact of the decision striking down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act is clear in the 13 states and the District of Columbia where gay marriage is currently legal or soon will be: Same-sex married couples must be treated the same as other spouses under federal laws governing tax, health care, pensions and other federal benefits.But employee benefit experts say the effect of the ruling remains murky in the other 37 states, including Florida. The court left intact another provision of the federal anti-gay marriage law that allows one state not to recognize a same-sex marriage performed elsewhere.Whats the federal government going to do when you have a valid marriage in New York and the couple moves to Texas? We dont know the answer to that, said Scott Macey, president of the ERISA Industry Committee that represents large employers.The confusion is creating uncertainty for many companies that operate nationwide. My members are all across the country, Macey said. Most, if not all of them, would prefer to have a consistent rule across the country. They dont want to worry about changing things from state to state. For workers living in states that have legalized same-sex marriage, the Supreme Courts decision means gay spouses are entitled to a host of benefits they were denied previously.The decision extends pension and Social Security survivor benefits to same-sex spouses, grants equal access to the Family and Medical Leave Act and gives employees married to same-sex spouses the guarantee of uninterrupted health care coverage under the federal COBRA health benefits program.Same-sex couples can also get the same tax break on health coverage that other couples have been receiving. Before the courts ruling, same-sex spouses covered by employer health plans had to pay taxes on the benefits they received, which on average added up to an extra $1,000 year. And employees now will be able to seek reimbursement from flexible health spending accounts for the medical expenses of gay spouses.This affects a thousand laws and regulations that touch employee benefits, said Bruce Elliott, manager of compensation and benefits at the Society for Human Resource Management, an industry association. It answers one question and raised many more, said Susan Hoffman, a Philadelphia attorney who focuses on employee benefits. There may be pressures on the employer, but there is no legal mandate.By SAM HANANELAssociated PressTHE WORKPLACE BUSINESS BRIEFSGranaghan named yacht club GMMarathon Yacht Club has hired Tony Granaghan as its general manager effective July 15.

City taxes are going upThe K ey Colony Beach City Commission did something J uly 3 it hasn t done in eight years raise property taxes. Mayor and Administrator R on Sutton said the commission was dead-set against continuing to spend down reserves in order to keep taxes level f or f iscal year 2013-14. That meant having to decide between raising the tax rate or cutting services. The result is a 21 percent increase f rom the current year s 2.3076 tax rate to 2.7985 in 2013-14. At 2.3076 or $ 230.76 per $ 100 000 o f assessed property value the owner o f a $ 300 000 house on K ey Colony paid $ 692.28 in taxes. At 2.7985 or $ 279.85 per $ 100 ,000 o f assessed value the same owner would pay $ 839.55 in the f iscal year starting O ct. 1. We haven t had an increase in eight years and we ve been using reserves , Sutton said. Y ou can t continue to do that or you ll be bankrupt so we decided we had to cover some o f these costs without using reserves. Sutton said it was a unanimous decision o f the board to not f urther spend down its $ 1.51 million reserve f und. The commission as a whole said we just don t have a choice , he said. H ope f ully our citizens will understand we had to do this. When times were extremely hard we did not raise taxes and used reserves. N ow things are starting to change a little bit. We do need to build reserves up and not spend them. Sutton said the board initially discussed spending $ 230 000 f rom reserves to keep taxes level in the coming year s budget. Later that f igure was reduced to$ 100 000. That s when we started saying E ach year we spend them , he said. It s time to catch back up. The 2013-14 budget is expected to raise $ 1.42 million in property taxes up f rom $ 1.03 million in the current year. That s a $ 390 000 increase. The total operating budget is $2.52 million up f rom $ 2.07 million in the current year. Besides taxes another sizable increase in revenue comes f rom a pair o f $ 50 000 state Department o f E nvironmental Protection grants that will be used to upgrade a pair o f city parks. O ther major sources o f revenue are sales and use taxes ($ 281 445 ), occupational licenses ($ 201 000 ), state shared revenue ($ 146 465 ) and building permits ($ 144 700 ) Police ($ 543 372 ) and f ire services ($ 525 000 ) account f or 42.5 percent o f the city s expenditures.

Juniors win baseball crownThe Upper Keys Juniors all-star squad brought home the Age 13-14 Little League District 8 pennant Saturday after a shutout win in the deciding game. Pitchers Nick Perez and Jose Lima teamed with the Keys defense to blank Liberty City, 10-0, at Claude Pepper Park in North Miami. Roman Roberts slammed two RBI doubles, including a three-run hit that helped the Upper Keys score seven runs in the fifth inning. With the score at 3-0 at in the middle of the fifth Liberty City remained a threat. But Keys hitters settled the issue by unleashing four extra-base hits in their half of the stanza, ending the game under the 10-run rule.Perez, who doubled, scored the game-ending run on a single by Marcus Gallen.Catcher Sean Walters defused a Liberty City rally in the fourth, throwing out two base runners on steal attempts. Joshua Gregis roamed left field to make tough catches for the third outs in Liberty Citys first and fifth innings. The victory over Liberty City gave the Upper Keys a 3-0 record and the pennant. With the championship already decided, the Keys played the final game of the round-robin and lost in extra innings to North Miami Beach, 9-8.

Majors in the title huntAsplit of two weekend games kept the Upper Keys Majors in the race for the Age 11-12 Little League District 8 Tournament pennant.The Keys all-stars (2-2) opened strong with a 10-4 Saturday win over North Miami, but fell 9-3 to undefeated Kendall (4-0) Sunday at the Key Largo Community Park. Results from a scheduled Tuesday game against Miami Springs (0-4) were pending at press time. The Upper Keys finishes its round-robin play in the four-team district in a 7 p.m. Thursday road game against North Miami (2-2) at Claude Pepper Park in North Miami. That game likely will determine which squad advances to face Kendall in the district championship game, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Key Largo Community Park. In the first inning against North Miami, Mike Signorelli belted a homer to empty the bases after teammates Jason Filpes, Kyle Richards and Kyle Krause delivered three consecutive singles. Dylan Scheu doubled and came around to score on Bryce Bynums single to give the Upper Keys a 5-0 lead headed into the second inning. Hits by Zane Absten and Bynum helped the Keys score two more runs to extend the Keys lead to 7-1 in the third. Scheu scored in the fifth inning, moved along by a Luke Townsend single. When Nick DiMaggio and Richards scored in a hitless rally in the sixth, the 10-1 lead looked unbeatable. But North Miami opened its last at-bat with a double, single and walk to load the bases with no outs. Three runs would score. Bynum took the mound in relief and used his fastball to get two strikeouts. The final out came on a sharp grounder that Richards speared behind second. He hit the ground but tossed the ball to shortstop Kraus for the out.Jason Filpes got the start and the pitching win for the Upper Keys. JoJo Silverstri used an effective curve ball to handle middle relief. The three Upper Keys hurlers combined for nine strikeouts.The Keys lineup knocked out eight hits, with just two strikeouts.

Ziels headed to Junior OlympicsThree seconds may not seem like a lot of time, but in the world of competitive swimming, its an eternity. For Marathon resident Hannah Ziels, it was the difference between staying home or competing this weekend in the U.S. Swimming Junior Olympics meet in Plantation in west Broward County. The 11-year-old finished off an incredible month of meets on Sunday, qualifying for the 50-meter event in her final attempt at this past weekends Florida Gold Coast Area 3 Developmental Championship meet. That meet was also in Plantation.Zielstime was 34.30, just .09 seconds better than the 34.39-second Junior Olympic cutoff time for the event.I set a goal to make it, and I really wanted to make it and I did, the incoming seventh-grader said. Shaving time even hundredths of a second is a lengthy process for developing swimmers, and the 11year-old Ziels faced an uphill battle to earn a Junior Olympics birth.Its even more difficult in the 50-meter freestyle, which is essentially an all-out sprint across one length of the pool. Ziels is a freestyle specialist who swims the 50meter, 100meter and 200-meter events.She was motivated to make the cut and shaved significant time in all three freestyle distances over the past month. Tim Knight, longtime coach of Ziels Amphibious Assault swim team, said she cut three seconds from her 50-meter time, eight seconds from her 100meter time and 15 seconds from her 200-meter time. By next year shell be making [Junior Olympics] in all of them, Knight said. Shes a hard worker. Shes young and everything is ahead of her. She never misses practice and tries as hard as she can.Ziels made it through qualifying and finished ninth in the final in 34.74 seconds, or .35 seconds shy of the 34.39 qualifying time. Undaunted, she participated in time trials after the meet and took .44 seconds off her personal best after a three-day meet.Knight said he hoped Ziels wouldnt have to swim the trials after such a long meet. No one thought she was going to be able to do it after three days in the sun and getting your best time. Shes got real guts, he said.Zielsvictory marks the 17th straight year in which a member of Knights local U.S. Swimming team has advanced to the Junior Olympics. Thats quite a feat for a team that has never had an Olympic-size pool to train in.Knights trains swimmers at the Cabana Club on Key Colony Beach, where owner April Tracy has for years donated its pool as a practice facility. I just really like the water and swimming in general, she said.

I was lying on my belly looking nose to nose at three gravestones, recalls Murphy, now a Monroe County commissioner. One was straight up. One was tipped. And one was flat on the ground. Murphy, then 18, became volunteer caretaker of the tiny, abandoned cemetery, whose boundaries were marked by the iron bars. She lovingly kept it up, adorning the graves with flowers, though she didnt know a soul buried there. After she moved in 1955, the burial ground was once again abandoned and mostly forgotten until a Brazilian couple purchased the property and applied for a permit to build a waterfront home last year. The Monroe County Historical Preservation Commission got involved and last fall, the Ballast Trail Cemetery became one of five Keys burial places listed on the Florida Division of Historical ResourcesMaster Site File. The designation didnt prevent the new owners from building, but it does hold them accountable for the cemetery. Its a felony to mess with it, said Diane Silvia, executive director of the Historic Florida Keys Foundation and a preservation planner for the county. So listing it certainly should save it. The Tavernier site is safe, but Sarah Miller, a region director of the Florida Public Archeology Network, says numerous final resting sites are not listed. Historic cemeteries are disappearing from our landscape its a national and statewide problem, Miller said. They are very fragile historic resources that we need to preserve. They are our outdoor museums.Thats why she developed whats called Cemetery Resources Protection Training CRPT, or crypt, for short. The $15 course teaches citizens and local governments how to save cemeteries, memorial sites, unmarked burials and single gravesites.Miller told the 15 or so people gathered for a recent session in Key West that the most important step is to add the place to the states Master Site File, which so far lists 1,103 historic cemeteries and burial sites. The website www.finda grave.com meanwhile, includes 4,429 Florida locations (including some duplications.)We dont know how many there are, but we know there are a lot more that we dont have, said Vincent Chip Birdsong, supervisor of the Master Site File. The list is especially sparse in South Florida, with just 20 sites in Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward combined. Where theres lots of people, theres lots of dead people, Miller said. The key requirement for listing, she said, is that the site be at least 50 years old. It doesnt have to be like the National Register where so-and-so was buried there, Miller said. It doesnt have to have a Revolutionary War hero or anything grand. Miami-Dade has nine cemeteries listed on the site. Kathleen Slesnick Kauffman, the countys chief historic preservation chief, said the county ordinance for designation of historic cemeteries requires special significance such as an association with a historic event like the Civil War, pioneers buried there or amazing architectural or design features. Participants in the CRPT class in Key West were taken to the Key West Cemetery to learn how to properly clean headstones. Established in 1847, it is one of the most popular cemeteries in the country, with about 50,000 people a year walking 19 acres where Cuban cigar makers, Spanish-American War veterans, Bahamian mariners, millionaires and paupers alike are buried. One of our logos is Herein lies our history, said Russell Brittain, the cemeterys sexton. Longtime resident Ray Blazevic said he has found 21 other burial sites in Key West. Ive been here 55 years and Ive counted them, he said during a break in the class. There are even graves in the floor of the Methodist church. Miller hopes information like this as well as lists compiled by local historical societies and libraries will one day be documented on the Master Site File.Birdsong said his small department relies on the public for submissions. You dont have to be a professional, and its only a two-page form, he said. It would make a great project for a graduate student.Added Miller: You would help make sure a cemetery is still here in 100 years. Pet cemeteries also can be put on the Master Site File because they are part of a cultural tradition, Miller said.In Key West, theres a popular cat cemetery at the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum that is the final resting spot of more than 35 felines. At the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key, theres a grave for Mitzi the Dolphin, TVs original Flipper.Oh, yeah, that could be listed, Miller said. It shows what the community thought of the animal. In Tavernier, Alice Allen, a member of the Monroe County Historic Preservation Commission, researched who was buried at the abandoned Ballast Trail Cemetery. She learned from his daughter that the remains of Edward Morris Williams, who died in the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, had been moved to Miami. The other graves are believed to belong to relatives of Amos Lowe, the patriarch of Taverniers founding family.In 2005, a distant relative photographed the two remaining headstones. One was inscribed for Annie Laurie Lowe, Amosdaughter, who lived from 1873 to 1897. The name on the other headstone was illegible, with just a date of 1873. Since then, Murphy said, one of the heavy headstones has disappeared.

This is not about money.Its what you do or pass on that hopefully lives on beyond your involvement.Many years ago, my husband and I lived in a condo in Hollywood in Broward County. Shortly after moving in, we noticed there was no recycling program so when he became the condo president, he duly appointed me the building recycling coordinator.Afew years previously, I had moved from England, where recycling was in full swing and driving my recyclables to the town-hall collection facility every weekend was normal. So when I saw the lack of recycling in our condo and the reasons ranged from we dont want to attract bugs to its too far to carry them downstairs to the dumpster, I worked out a program in which the recycling was dropped off in bins adjacent to the trash chute on each floor and the super would pick it up daily and take it down to the recycling dumpster.The cost of pickup was minimal when shared by the number of condo units and the association budget could cover it.I worked with the super on what to do on pickup days. I designed clear, easy to understand recycling signs and posted them in hard-tomiss locations by the trash chutes and on the door to the trash chute. By making it easy, the program took off well and I would perform random checks on each floor. We moved away after two years and I really dont know how the program runs today, but I hope a version of it still survives. For me, that was my legacy from my time in that Hollywood condo. During our time in the Keys, my husband has worked for a number of local dive operators. He values the importance of boating and diving safety and being considerate of marine resources.Before each trip, he would conduct the safety briefing to all the passengers always the same information but often to people who had never been in the ocean before.Arriving at the reef, he would inform them about reef etiquette leaving no trash and emphasizing that the coral should not be touched. For him, the best feedback was the day a passenger who had listened to one of his briefings scolded a set of divers from an adjacent boat for touching the coral.Turned out that boat was a Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary research vessel carrying senior sanctuary staff and scientists, with a special permit to collect coral samples. But the passenger didnt know that. Even so, they were really pleased that a captain from a commercial operation was conducting good briefings on reef etiquette.Hopefully those lessons live on with other visitors and become my husbands legacy as what that captain had said.As I look around me and whenever I am able to travel, its always encouraging to hear and see examples of trying to make a difference, illustrating the philosophy of leaving a legacy, thinking globally and acting locally.Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education she can be reached at ShirleyGLEE@comcast.net.

Protagonist of the eighth novel from highly lauded poet and author Charlie Smith, Cot is a veteran Miami gangster, and trouble is his stock and trade, but his only goal at the beginning of Men in Miami Hotels is to rustle up enough cash to clear up the issue of his mothers Key West home, which has fallen off of its stilts and subsequently been condemned. To this end, he steals a pouch of emeralds (literally buried treasure) from under the nose of his former employer, a heavy-hitter named Albertson who knows how to hold a grudge. The stones go missing almost immediately, with Cots old friend CJ killed in the process, and soon every bad man with a gun in Florida has Cotland and those he loves in his crosshairs.On the surface, the plot is composed of the sort of set pieces that would make for a good summer blockbuster: Machine-gunners, plane crashes, yacht explosions. But in Smiths masterfully lyrical prose, what could have been a simple pulpy adventure becomes a rewarding, and even challenging, examination of time, fate and fatalism that recalls the best work of Denis Johnson or Robert Stone.Although Cot can more than handle himself in the field, hes no goon, and Smith describes with wrenching beauty how acutely he feels his own failures: He wishes his whole life could simply stop so he could sneak around behind it, work on it and if he couldnt fix it escape out the back.... Old desires crawl on his skin, spiral up from the inside, circle his heart like an abashed tribe thats lost everything, and he cant remember what he wanted to say. As the story grows darker and the violence escalates with the implacability of a nightmare, the initially clear moral universe turns on its head in an unsettling inversion reminiscent of Clint Eastwoods Unforgiven. Like Eastwoods character in that movie, when Cot gives full expression to his true nature, the bodies of foes and friends pile up.Men in Miami Hotels may seem odd or inaccessible to some readers because its so peerless. Authors who concern themselves with gun fights and gambling often dont care much to stop and describe an old womans hands (Knotted rope stained purple) or the full measure of the hopes and regrets of characters seen only in passing.But Smith, warrior-poet to the core, thrives in uncharted waters. Leave the wheelbarrows and blackbirds for the others, and he will take the Uzis and the existential anguish. Nicholas Mancusi is a writer in New York.
