The hunt beginsCaravans of trailered boats headed into the Florida Keys while customers lined up to buy new dive fins and masks this week, all getting ready for lobster sport-diving days today and Thursday.The two-day lobster mini-season could see nearly 40,000 people headed out to chase the tasty crustaceans in Keys waters, said Bill Sharp, a statistics specialist with the state Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in Marathon. Its not just that the Keys have a lot of lobster, Sharp said. The Keys are one of the few places where the lobster are abundant in shallow water.In most other areas, youve got to use scuba gear to dive for lobster, he said. If youre not scuba-certified, this is where lobster are accessible using a mask and snorkel.Generally, Monroe County draws about 60 percent of the states recreational divers who hit the water for mini-season. In recent years, that comes in around 32,000 to 39,000 people in the Keys, said Sharp, based on his annual survey. Florida issues more than 100,000 of the $5 recreational lobster stamps annually, but not all participate in mini-season. By midday Monday, staff at the Lobster Information Booth at mile marker 106 spoke with more than 600 people since Saturday morning, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Bobby Dube. The outreach effort also drew support from the National Park Service, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

This one takes the cake, said Bill Keogh, a Lower Keys kayaking guide for more than three decades. I dont know where the heck this came from. Keogh returned from a Friday trip into the Gulf of Mexico with a 13-foot piece of aluminum just under 4 feet wide. It probably only weighs about 100 pounds, Keogh said. Its all honeycombed aluminum. Ahuge stainless-steel piston, 22 inches long, strongly suggests that the section once covered a cargo hold on a large jet. Chris Baehn, a kayak tour guide and retired American Airlines mechanic, quickly surmised that it was from a bay door on a commercial aircraft, probably an Airbus based on the size and components, Keogh said. Much of the piece was intact but small areas were damaged and frayed.The extent of the dimesized to silver-dollar-sized gooseneck barnacles that attached themselves to the metal, Keogh said, leads me to believe its been floating around the gulf for a while.Its been out in the blue water, Im guessing six months or longer, said Keogh, also a noted outdoor photographer and natureguide author. I assume that it originated from the Gulf of Mexico or possibly the Caribbean basin, Keogh said. Then [it was] swept by the Gulf Stream and wound up being carried by the tidal flushing into Bahia Honda Channel and east to No Name Key.

Theyre not accurate for people running at the local level, Bridges said.He said Republicans get pigeonholed as fiscally conservative or socially intolerant but feels those distinctions should not come into play with Mosquito Control. I dont know of any elected Republican whos socially intolerant and [there are] plenty of Democrats that are fiscally conservative. People who run for Mosquito Control should be judged for their positions on Mosquito Control, Bridges said.Bridges appeared to have support heading into the meeting from Chairman Bill Shaw and Commissioner Steve Smith, but both voted against the resolution to adopt legislation that ultimately would have required approval from the state Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott.Shaw has said parties would not matter in district elections unless they start registering mosquitoes, but reversed course Monday.I think [Bridges] is trying to fix something thats not broken, he said. I dont want our charter to be opened up by the Legislature to change how we run because they might change something else. Im not willing to take that risk forParty politics will remain,and no term limitsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLBoard approves proposed budgetThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday gave tentative approval to Superintendent Mark Porters fiscal year 2013-14 budget, which contains a slight increase from the current year.Porter stressed that he and Finance Director Jim Drake worked to bring in a budget devoid of deficit spending and including what he termed restorative pay for employees who have been subject to mandatory seven-day unpaid furloughs for three years.Drake projects matching revenue and expense at $84.5 million. The adopted 2012-13 budget has revenue of $80.1 million and $79.5 million in spending.The proposed tax rate, which can be lowered but not raised ahead of final approval on Sept. 3, is $3.681 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The current rate is $3.660 per $1,000. That means the owner of a $300,000 home paid $1,098 in school taxes this year. With increased property values the past year, that same homeowner can expect to pay $1,158. Included in the budget is a $1.4 million raise pool mandated by the state Legislature, as well as $800,000 thats not allocated. Porter said that will figure into ongoing collective bargaining talks with the United Teachers of Monroe.Beginning in 2010, the district launched its mandatory seven-day teacher furlough program that saved more than $1 million each year.Resources are built in to try to address that, Porter said. By the time the board would be asked to vote on and approve a final budget, we will be able to define for you how those resources will be distributed. He said the solution will be subject to ongoing collective bargaining, but wouldnt necessarily be a straight-up removal of furlough days. I dont think itll disappear, he said, but be more of a combination of money and time, like Ill give you a $1,500 raise and fewer days. Its good to see we may be turning a corner and helping the people that get these students where they are, board member and former Coral Shores High School Principal Ron Martin said. I do believe thats exactly where we are, Porter said. Poised to turn a corner but to do so with great caution. What we will recommend will be a conservative budget as we seek to restore compensation for employees but also in a manner I believe we can sustain over time. UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said she is reviewing district financials as part of the bargaining process. We feel this is essential to beginning any meaningful dialogue on financial issues, she said. At this point, we have no reason to believe the district has a [financial] need for additional furlough days. The next bargaining session is Thursday beginning at 9 a.m. in district offices on Trumbo Point in Key West.Teacher pay still remains to be decidedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Mosquito,2A

Board OKs school moneyIt was beginning to look on Monday like Florida Keys Mosquito Control District biologist Catherine Pruszynski might never begin her doctorate program in entomology at the University of Florida. Pruszynski had requested money to do so nearly a year ago but the vote was delayed because the Mosquito Control Board had numerous questions on the districts educational assistance policy. Several more arose on Monday, despite district Director Michael Doyle saying the new policy would cover just roughly half of her original $42,000 request and that it falls in line with most other Mosquito Control policies.We have a specialized org here and we should encourage our employees to get more education. I consider this an extension of our training policies, he said.Commissioner Jack Bridges voiced concern over no built-in check on how many classes Doyle, or any future director, could approve at one time. Commissioner Phil Goodman then argued that a grade of B should be required instead of a C if the district is paying for classes, which the board went along with. There was also the question of requiring a contract for employees to stay with the district for a specified amount of time after receiving a district-paid advanced degree. It was shot down because of potential legal complications.There will be a cap of $10,000 per year for any employee, but a maximum of $25,000 available to the entire district each year. Chairman Bill Shaw said that should not be a problem.Since Ive been with Mosquito Control, I dont think theres been five or six people to take advantage of this policy. I dont think its a big budget item, he said.In other business Monday:The board voted unanimously to postpone signing off on Electronic Data Solutions as the company to provide a new $392,400 computer database system in fiscal year 2013-14. Doyle has said the improved database would cut down on travel and make district helicopters more efficient because staff could better track places treated from the ground.But the board had concerns that the software the company would provide has not been properly vetted by staff. It voted to postpone approval for one monthVoted unanimously to hire former district Comptroller William Southcott as an hourly consultant during this summers budget process. Doyle said he wants Southcott to help since budgeting, overseen by the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, is difficult. I wouldnt expect a lot of time, generally an afternoon a week, he said. Goodman voiced concern at the $100 hourly rate Southcott will earn but ultimately voted for it.Biologist getting $10K for doctorateBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,July 24,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.9379 THURS.9379 FRI.9479 SAT.9379 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Scott appointed him in 2011 when then-Commissioner Dick Rudell died shortly after the 2010 election.No matter how you label it, the races are going to be political, said Goodman, whose wife Debby chairs the KeysGOP. If you take that away, you take away the ability for people to see what you stand for.Meanwhile, Goodman ruffled some feathers at the end of the long meeting when he announced he would propose next month a plan to impose term limits on Mosquito Control commissioners. Goodman says it would encourage more people to run for office. It met with swift rebuke from Smith, who took a shot at Goodmans appointment to the board.You can lead them to do it, but you cant make them care what theyre doing. I ran for office; I was elected by people. I am one of the people here who is an elected official, he said. Shaw, also a five-term incumbent, agreed. I think the best term limits are when people go to the ballot box and vote for you or against you, he said.Politics remainFrom Mosquito,1A Long Island, N.Y., residents Kathleen Power-Lieberman and Jeff Brauchler around the gulfside flats between No Name Key and Big Mangrove Key when they spotted a triangular piece of floating debris that lodged in the bottom, in about 5 feet of water. About 2 feet [was] protruding above the surface, Keogh said, looking like a sharks dorsal fin. We took photos, investigated and then finally lashed her to the front flat deck [of his Carolina Skiff outboard] and transported her back to the Old Wooden Bridge Fish Camp, the guide said. Its big but it was actually pretty easy to move. Without more information from the part, finding out how it wound up in the ocean waters will be difficult, said National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Keith Holloway.For mor on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com.Wheres it from?From Discovery,1AVitas: Mosquito Controls likely outIt appears the city of Key Wests chronic homeless problem will leave the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District without a Lower Keys home of its own.City Manager Bob Vitas addressed the Mosquito Control Board on Monday and, while confirming nothing, admitted perhaps the worst-kept secret in local government: The city is targeting the districts longtime College Road headquarters as an eventual 24hour homeless shelter. The site thats been on the radar is the property were on right now, as well as the detached parking area, Vitas said. The city operates the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, also on College Road, but has long discussed a more comprehensive shelter. To that end, Vitas hired Texas-based consultant Richard Marbut in April to conduct a survey of homeless services and analyze needed services. Vitas said Monday that Marbut is slated to present his finding to the Key West City Commission on Aug. 6. The contract is worth a little more than $13,000 and lasted from May 1 to July 15. Hes going to report on the chronic problem in Key West and that Key West has the highest per-capita homeless population in the United States, Vitas said. According to Vitas, Marbuts report will contain a plan of action to better deal with the homeless population. Following that, itll be up to the commission to give the administration direction. The next step is making determinations on space needs and requirements to put in a 24-7 facility here in the Keys, he said. Commissioners got a bit of good news when Vitas indicated that the city would be willing to do a month-tomonth lease when the districts 35-year, $1-per-year lease end. All parties agreed the process could take several years. Vitas said Monday its possible a vacant Easter Seals building adjacent to Mosquito Control could serve as an intake center while the district building could be transitional housing. The Sunset Marina Homeowners Association is suing to block the opening of a new homeless center.But monthly lease possible, manager saysBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL Bug board OKs budgetThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board narrowly approved a tentative fiscal year 2013-14 spending plan Monday thats expected to raise the same amount of tax revenue as the current year. The vote was 3-2, with commissioners Jack Bridges, Phil Goodman and Jill Cranney-Gage in favor. The .5069 tax rate is equivalent to $50.69 for every $100,000 in assessed property value. The owner of a $300,000 home in Monroe County would pay $152.07 in taxes to the district. But rather than include it in the operating budget, Bridges, Goodman and Cranney-Gage voted to use $500,000 in reserves to help fund a costly move off its city of Key West-owned College Road headquarters in the future. The city wants to construct a 24-hour homeless shelter and has targeted that piece of land. Its likely to not renew the districts 35year, $1-per-year lease when it expires in May 2014. The vote came despite direction from staff and former Comptroller William Southcott, who was at the meeting, that district reserves are sorely lacking. I dont have a problem taking money out of reserves to pay for a capital improvement, because youre paying for an asset, Bridges said. City Manager Bob Vitas addressed the board on Monday and declined to confirm the citys intentions until a study of the citys homeless situation by Texasbased consultant Robert Marbut is presented to the City Commission on Aug. 6. However, Vitas said if the land is taken back, the city would likely be willing to extend the districts lease month to month because it could take many months to plan a new homeless shelter. That prompted Bridges to argue that the $2.4 million for a new headquarters proposed in the opening budget on June 24 was too high. This may not be a problem in this budget, he said. The budget still includes a $486,468 increase in dayto-day operations, from $10.27 million to $10.75 million. Thats due in large part to a $300,000 new computer system and $240,000 worth of overhauls to several district aircraft. Chairman Bill Shaw and Commissioner Steve Smith voted against the budget because they felt it was too early in the process to approve a rate so low. State law says the .5069 rate can be pared down but not raised. We dont know what the city of Key West is going to do. We need to be prepared to make a move and put some money down on a property. At this stage, I dont see any reason to tie our hands with no money in the budget, Shaw said. The next scheduled budget meetings are two public hearings on Sept. 5 in Key Largo and Sept. 14 in Marathon. Both are slated to begin at 5:30 p.m.The revenue is same as current yearBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551

Dropping by U.S. 1 for a snack turned a young vulture into an accidental hitchhiker July 11. The raptor took off too late to avoid traffic and found itself firmly lodged behind the bumper of a southbound Lexus. Now the bird known as Grilly is on the way to a full recovery at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center after his wild ride and rescue.Hes our miracle vulture, Amanda Margraves, chief rehabilitator for the Tavernier center, said Monday. Hes doing great and will eventually be released.Jennifer Gardner of Palm Beach Gardens called the bird centers hotline July 11 to report that a vulture was stuck in the front of her car. Gardner knew her car hit the black bird south of Florida City, but heavy traffic did not allow her to stop, Margraves said.When Gardner reached Key Largo, she was startled to see the vulture had come along for the ride. Center staff told her they cannot respond to dead birds after hours. Five minutes later, she called back to say its not dead, Margraves said. Gardner drove to the centers treatment clinic, where intern Leah Zigelsky and staff climbed beneath the Lexus. Mechanics tools were used to loosen parts of the grill assembly, and Grilly came free. His survival was remarkable but the vultures condition surprised Dr. Bob Foley and other volunteer veterinary advisors for the nonprofit center. X-rays showed he had no broken bones, which nobody could believe, Margraves said. The only injury he sustained was some hemorrhaging in one of his lungs. The exhausted Grilly slept for two days straight but soon was up, walking, and enjoying staff-prepared carrion. Although the bird centers staff refers to the young adult Grilly as a male, thats a guess. It also could turn out to be either a turkey vulture or a black vulture. They go through so many color changes, its really hard to know at this stage, Margraves said. whose Miami family marks its 25th year of spending mini-season in the Keys. We take the week off and make it a big family thing, Gonzalez said. Weve been going to the Lower Keys recently but were headed to Marathon this year. Edward and Lorie Flores of Lakeland bring their daughters, ages 11 and 13, to the Keys every summer, Edward said. If the timing is right for mini-season, so much the better. I want the kids to know what it was like for me growing up in the Caribbean, and this is the closest we can get without getting on a jet. Michael Lamando of Dunedin stopped at the booth to double check rules and no-harvest areas. Daughter Tianna, 7, and son Michael, 4, will try lobstering for the first time. I dont want to get them in trouble, Lamando chuckled. Dozens of state and federal law-enforcement officers will patrol local waters to check lobstering permits and harvests. People are allowed to take a maximum of six per day, with a twoday limit of 12. The FWCs lobster-sniffing canines will join officers on patrol. Violations typically involve taking undersized or too many lobster. Closed areas include nearshore waters closer than 300 feet from shore in many areas of the Keys. Waters inside John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and the Everglades National Park area of Florida Bay also are closed, along with designated Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary areas.

Key West police were called to Fort Zachary State Park around 8 a.m. July 18 to find about 20 foot-long bricks of cocaine that had washed up on the beach and been collected by park staff. The next morning, 67 miles away at Long Key State Park, a visitor alerted rangers to another load of bricks washed up on the beach and weighing about 20 pounds, according to reports. Key West resident Peter Bamberger spends almost every morning at Fort Zach, and last Thursday was no exception.There were cops everywhere, searching up and down the beach, he said.

Originally native to the Indo-Pacific oceans, the lionfish was imported to the U.S. as aquarium fish and eventually released into the Atlantic Ocean by pet owners who were not able to maintain them. Since their release into the wild, the lionfish has established itself through most of the Gulf of Mexico and along the eastern seaboard of the United States. In early, 2009 the first lionfish was spotted in the Florida Keys and they have since devastated our ecosystem. Lionfish are considered to be the perfect invasive species for three reasons: Lack of natural predators, omnivorous appetite and rapid reproduction rate. These characteristics allow the lionfish to not only survive in our delicate ecosystem but to thrive at the expense of other species. Due to their voracious appetite, lionfish prey on juveniles of commercially important fish such as grouper and snapper, along with parrotfish, which keep the coral healthy by eating algae.In an attempt to solve the lionfish problem, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission encourages divers to remove them from the water if spotted. Local groups have also hosted events in which teams of divers go out and compete to catch as many lionfish as possible within a given period of time.These events have come to be called lionfish derbies but they have hardly made a dent in the total lionfish population. Due to this limited success we, as a community, must call upon our government to provide a solution to this local pandemic. Alfred Comeforo Islamorada Editors note: The Sanctuary Friends Foundation of the Florida Keys is hosting a lionfish tournament Saturday and Sunday in Marathon. To find out specifics, call Kristen at 4810685 or send an e-mail to kristen@sanctuaryfriends.org .Where are the barracudas?As an avid young fisherman living in the Florida Keys, I have noticed a decline in the barracuda population. The barracuda is a very important species in our surrounding ecosystem. Barracudas are not specialty eaters and thus they will eat just about anything. Their existence contributes to keeping the ecosystem balanced between the different fish species. Over the past five years, the barracuda population has been depleted. Not until recently has this depletion become a known issue. Recent studies have shown that more than 30,000 pounds of barracuda were harvested just last year, triple what it was in 2011 and 30 times what it was in 1999. If this trend continues, barracudas will quickly become an endangered species. The government has put a restriction on the number of fish you can harvest. The law states that you can only harvest two fish or 100 pounds, whichever happens first. But there is a loophole in the law, as it only affects people who catch the fish in the waters of the United States. Fishing guides had previously described the fish as a junk fish so no one really ate barracudas. Not until recently have people really tried to eat barracuda because the fish carries a poison that can cause a severe illness and it has a foul odor. If people knew more about the effects of overfishing the barracuda, they would understand why bag limits are vital to the preservation of the barracuda species. The fishing community needs to work together to educate the recreational fishermen on the effects of overfishing barracuda. Miles Miller IslamoradaKillings now OKThe jury in the Trayvon Martin/ George Zimmerman trial handed down a not-guilty, license-to-kill verdict. It is now OK to follow, pursue and confront anyone you want. You may think he is up to no good or perhaps he or she is a person that you do not like. If the other person fights back, you can kill that person and claim self defense. It doesnt matter if you have called law enforcement and were told by them to stop the pursuit and wait for them to take control of the situation. Unfortunately in this case, the victim was shot to death while defending himself, in fear of his life with only a bag of Skittles candy in his pocket. A horrible tragedy has occurred and a terrible travesty of justice was rendered by a system that favors those who have enough money to hire clever attorneys to twist the law to their own ends. So much for American justice. I wonder if the same verdict would have been handed down if the races of killer and victim were reversed. I think not. Larry Benvenuti MarathonNo need to spend big money when the districts Marathon building is ready for more useThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board found out Monday what everybody else in Key West has known for quite some time: It looks like its time to move. The College Road property occupied by Mosquito Control for 35 years is owned by the city of Key West. Mayor Craig Cates has made it clear for more than a year that hes moving forward on a homeless center to be built there. Some members of the Mosquito Control Board anticipated that outcome (which has not yet been formalized by the Key West City Commission), so theyve been scouting for alternative sites for months. District Executive Director Michael Doyle prepared a 2013-14 budget with $2.4 million set aside in capital funds just in case. Wed like to propose an alternative. The administrative staff can move into vacant space already built at the districts somewhat new building at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. And there are several vacant warehouse properties available in the Lower Keys, including a big one on Rockland Key, that can be retrofitted to secure equipment and chemicals used by the district, at far less cost than building something new. If you remember, a previous board under thenDirector Ed Fussel had floated grand plans for administrative offices and a gilded truck fleet for Rockland Key. This was back in the day when spending was out of control, leading to year-over-year tax increases that ballooned the district budget far beyond actual annual operating costs. At one point, the bean counters had to fess up that money held in reserve nearly matched the districts yearly operating expenses which meant levying taxes to support a $23.1 million budget in 2007 at a time when district annual operating costs were $10.8 million. We should point out those extra millions extracted from taxpayers could have helped ease tax burdens on every taxpayer all those years. Were pleased to see at least three commissioners on the current board get it, voting Monday for a tax rate at rollback, which means collecting no more taxes than the district got this year. Under Doyle, staffing levels, overhead and management costs have been pared back with support from commissioners who took office in 2011 and 2012. Now its time for Doyle and the board to come up with creative, less-expensive options for the Key West-Lower Keys than building another Taj Mahal like the $7.4 million the district spent on its Marathon facility, which has more than enough space to accommodate office and administrative staff without spending millions more for show in the Lower Keys.Wayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

Summer is here, and many students are probably enjoying their freedom. When school ends and summer begins, it means no rushing to the bus stop, no school lunches and, most importantly (to students), no school work. As an educator for more than 30 years, I have always been aware of how important it is that students develop strong reading skills. In this regard, I had a great privilege this past spring to visit each of our schools to present the 2012-13 Superintendent Young Reader Awards. While this was a great opportunity to celebrate the successes of many of our students, it also raised my awareness and concern as to the number of students who did not qualify for recognition. My awareness and concern was significantly increased this past spring when I reviewed the FCAT-II test results for our students and noted very little overall improvement in our results across most grades and schools. This is clearly an opportunity for improvement in Monroe County schools. One of my commitments as the superintendent is to own our data and work effectively to reduce, and eliminate, identified lapses and gaps in student achievement. My intent is to raise awareness among families across our district, including those without school-age children, and encourage you to participate in addressing this serious concern. My wife Jane and I worked hard to encourage our three sons to develop strong reading skills. While all of our ambitions may not have been realized, our sons are very proficient readers. We never gave up on this important task. Let me share some lessons learned and some subsequently acquired knowledge in this area of critical concern. During the time we were raising our sons, one of the best pieces of advice we received was from an elementary teacher in the school district who told us to never stop reading to your child. There are many positive aspects of reading to our children. First, and perhaps most important, we spend additional time with our children. In our way-toobusy world, quiet time with our children is truly priceless. In addition, it demonstrates our interest in reading and helps expand their reading skills, as typically we try to read materials that are beyond their current level of competency. Reading to your children, at any age, is a great way to improve their reading skills.Reducing screen time, the time children, especially boys, spend in front of a television, computer screen or some type of portable screen has been identified by leading adolescent psychologists as being significant in healthy growth and development in many ways.Dont fool yourself into believing that children are gaining an educational advantage from such activities. The amount of time many young boys spend playing video games is truly astounding and clearly having a negative impact on their social and academic development, particularly in reading. Do whatever you can to reduce screen time and increase time spent on other activities, like reading. Visiting your local library is a great way to encourage children to read. We are very fortunate in our communities to have several branches of the Monroe County Public Library system. Check out its current hours and find a time when you can take your children to the library. This is a great way to find some new reading materials without spending a lot of money, just a little bit of time.Finally, I firmly believe that all adults need to model the behavior of reading to those young people over whom they have influence. I really dont think I can overstate the importance of this. When was the last time your child or grandchild saw you reading a book? Let me suggest some reading for various age groups. For adults, I can recommend from my reading list: Axioms by Bill Hybels, Lincoln on Leadership by Donald Phillips, and John Adams or Harry Truman, both biographies by David McCullough, as good nonfiction reads. I propose Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, Beach Music by Pat Conroy and APrayer for Owen Meany by John Irving as some of my favorite fiction books. Many of our schools have suggested summer reading lists. You can start at our district website, www.keys schools.com and from there find your school and grade level. For other recommendations I have turned to some of our literacy specialists in the School District and I was directed to a couple of good websites that focus specifically on reading materials for boys, www.booksforboys.com and www.guysread.com. I have not had the opportunity to preview all of the books referenced on these sites and I would encourage parents to preview any book your child will read. You can help address this issue. We appreciate your support and collaboration. The Monroe County School District is truly one of the best school districts in Florida; we just want to keep getting better.

The bright sunshine, moderate winds and exuberant waves made for an interesting underwater experience for divers and snorkelers who immersed themselves in the waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary off Big Pine Key. As in past years, local artist August Powers provided beautiful copper instruments, which were played underwater, providing a unique visual component.Thanks to the outstanding efforts of the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, this annual event receives international publicity that provides valuable incentives to drive tourists from all over the world to the Lower Keys, where they can enjoy every aspect of the regions unique marine environment. While 2013 coverage results have not yet been compiled, video coverage produced during the 2012 festival aired some 200 times and was seen by more than 4.2 million viewers.Set at the Looe Key Reef, a part of the continental United Statesonly living coral barrier reef, the Underwater Music Festival emphasizes reef preservation, with the radio broadcast offering tips on ways divers and snorkelers can minimize impacts on the Keysmarine environment. As with most community events, it takes many local businesses and community leaders working together to create successful experiences for residents and visitors. The Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce appreciates everyone who helped with this quirky, indigenous and worthwhile event. The 30th annual Underwater Music Festival is scheduled for July 12, 2014.

If your small business doesnt have a social media presence, you may be missing out on building brand loyalty with your customers or attracting new ones.So which social media site should you use? It depends on the type of business you own, says Shama Kabani, the founder of Web marketing company the Marketing Zen Group. You should be wherever your customers are. A restaurant, for example, needs to closely monitor online review site Yelp. The downside of social media is that it needs to be monitored all day. If someone asks what time the store closes, youll want to respond before it closes or youll miss a potential customer, says Kabani. If you dont have time to monitor many accounts, just choose one and focus on it, and maybe experiment with the others later. You can also hire a social media marketer to manage the accounts, or hand them over to an intern. Here are tips on how small businesses can use social media:Facebook. With 1.1 billion users, its hard to ignore Facebook. Theres a greater chance that your customers are on it, says Amanda Schuster, a writer and social media marketer. Even the senior set is using it, she says.To get your business in front of Facebook users, youll need to create a page for your business, and get people to like it. (Always keep your business page and personal Facebook profile separate. Your customers dont need to see your latest vacation pictures or your kids graduations.)To attract more likes, you will likely need to buy a Facebook advertisement, says Schuster. You can customize the ad and choose the audience you want to reach, based on their location, age, gender or interests. An ad can cost as little as $10 a day, says Schuster.Foursquare.This location-based social network is best for businesses that are on the move, such as a food truck or if youre selling a product in different locations. Abrand of alcohol, for example, can check in at a restaurant or bar that serves its products, says Schuster. Foursquare helps your customers keep track of where your product is being sold and what events youre planning.Instagram. The photo-sharing service works best with businesses that have a visual element. A clothing store can post pictures of its latest styles, for example. Photos can be easily shared from Instagram to other social media networks, such as Twitter and Facebook (which owns Instagram).LinkedIn.LinkedIn isnt just for job seekers. Small business owners should create a company page on the online professional networking service, says LinkedIn career expert Nicole Williams. You can add contact info, products and other information about your business to the company page.Twitter. With more than 200 million users, this social network also has a big following. Christina Kennedy, a social media marketer, recommends that businesses follow people or companies that you think will be interested your business. Theyll be more likely to check your page out to see who is following them, getting you on their radar. Businesses can also use the site to deal with customer complaints, or to thank people who say good things.Pinterest.The pinboard-style photosharing website is popular with businesses that have a visual element. The key here is to be authentic and share photos that users want to see, rather than just an advertisement for your business. Arestaurant can offer a photo and recipe for a new dish, for example.Yelp. If you own a restaurant, bar, clothing store or many other kinds of businesses, users of the online review site have likely created a page for it already.You need to expand your online presenceBy JOSEPH PISANIBusiness WriterTECHNOLOGYKeynoter, Reporter are honoredThe Keynoter and Reporter have won six awards in the Florida Press Associations annual Better Weekly Newspapers clips contest for calendar year 2012.

New building permit process OKdAlaw that, if approved, would add 910 residential building permit allocations to Key West passed a first hurdle Thursday with unanimous approval from the city Planning Board. All of Monroe County is an Area of Critical State Concern, meaning development is tied to a 24-hour hurricane evacuation clearance time and overseen by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, formerly the Department of Community Affairs.Based on updates to land development regulations and the citys comprehensive plan, the DEO last month awarded 91 permit allocations annually for the next 10 years.Many of them are for market-rate housing. The city hadnt received new marketrate units since 1983. I know this is an important date and a lot of people in the public have been waiting, Planner Nicole Malo told the board. Developer Ed Swift, president and co-owner of Historic Tours of America, said theres also a big need for affordable workforce housing in Key West and throughout Monroe County. Theres a tremendous demand, he said. If you talk to any merchant, tour company, attraction, grocery store, employee housing is their No. 1 problem.Lingering plans to redevelop Peary Court in Key West call for 48 affordable units. A recently shelved plan to build an assisted-living center also required new allocations.Of the new allocations, 40 percent, or 36 for each of the next three years, can go to market-rate homes. The rest must go toward affordable housing. For the following seven years, half must go for affordable housing, 40 percent for market-rate homes and 10 percent for transient housing such as hotels. Malo said the Planning Department would accept allocation applications beginning in January and theyd be awarded in July. After that, she said, the application period would run from July to September, with awards following in January of the next year. She said the awards would be determined by the Planning Board. Criteria to be considered in evaluation include having the unit comply with the Florida Green Building Codes bronze sustainability level or being LEED-certified through the U.S. Green Building Council; being 1.5 feet above the flood level; and having 25 percent of the roof area capturing runoff for landscape watering.

R eport: Bullying is an issueAstudy of Monroe County School District operations released last week indicates the majority of students, teachers and parents who responded to a survey believe safety at Keys schools is a problem.Washington, D.C.-based Hanover Research accumulated the results based on responses from 225 parents, 558 teachers and 2,004 students.The most common and serious concerns raised by all respondent groups deal with bullying, discipline and security, the report says. The majority of each group report that students bully one another sometimes or most of the time, and 60 percent of students report being bullied at school.Despite the data, anecdotal observations from district leadership, law enforcement and a Key West High School teacher paint a different picture.Superintendent Mark Porter pondered whether the definition of bullying played a part in the survey results. It has become one of those terms that, in some cases, is cast about somewhat flippantly, he said. We do so as adults and students probably do somewhat the same. I dont want to in any way discount this and say nothing is happening. We know there are challenges to student behavior in schools. District policy says for behavior to amount to bullying or harassment, the action has to meet three criteria: There is a perceived imbalance of power; the behavior is repeated; the victims educational environment has been adversely affected.Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said bullying is always an issue in schools and these days, there are more ways to bully than ever before, with text messages and social networking websites.That being said, she said, our school resource officers have not noticed the issue is any more pronounced recently than it usually is. Mary Maxwell, who teaches senior-level British literature at Key West High School, said her classroom experiences dont match with the survey findings. Every class is like a little family, she said. I just havent observed bullying.She said her interactions with students arent limited to her classroom. Rather, they include special events, lunch and monitoring assignments.We all have an opportunity to interact with the entire student body and I personally dont see it, she said. The survey is an annual requirement from the Florida Department of Education. Areas covered are facilities and technology, instructional environment, student support, safety and behavior, general attitudes, parental communication, school choice, administration and professional outlook. Hanover concluded: Teachers express overall satisfaction with working at [the School District], with almost three-fourths of teachers report[ing] being satisfied with their jobs. However, a similar percent report some degree of dissatisfaction with their salary and benefits.The contract with Hanover was executed on Oct. 1 and cost the district $24,999.But officials say little evidence of itBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBoard OKs La Concha changeDespite one-sided public opposition, the Key West Planning Board on Thursday unanimously approved plans to convert the seventh floor of the La Concha hotel on Duval Street from a popular sunset viewing spot into a six-suite spa. Planning Director Don Craig acknowledged that many may have an emotional tie to the rooftop bar now there, but the property owners do have a right to operate within the [land development regulations] and our recommendation is approval. The 160-room hotel at 430 Duval is owned by the local Spottswood family and managed by Remington Hospitality of Dallas. On behalf of the Spottwoods, land-use planner Mary Felder said, We are all aware there is some unhappiness with this proposed change. We do hope the people who are fond of the top of the La Concha will now enjoy it even more when they come to it as a spa. It will be open to the public. That wasnt much solace for Patrick Stecher, a street artist who works in front of the hotel who created an online petition at www .moveon.org opposing the change. As of Tuesday, it had garnered more than 1,300 digital signatures.With some effort and creativity, that rooftop bar could be a real money maker, he said. Its something that a lot of people really are concerned about. Its kind of a tourist attraction. We really think its a shame that [the view] would be wasted.He added, I dont know how many people are going to use the spa just to see the sunset.Craig made it clear that the hotel owner would not be able to convert the six planned spa suites into hotel rooms.We were very, very clear to them those cannot be used for any transient purpose whatsoever, he said. They also clearly understand that if, in the future, they wish to convert these to a transient use, they would have to remove six units elsewhere in the hotel.The development plan was approved 4-0 with Planning Board members Michael Browning and Richard Klitenick absent. Timothy Root recused himself because hes a contractor who, he implied, might get business from the changeover.The next step for the $1.2 million rebuild is City Commission approval.Seventh-floor bar becoming 6-suite spaBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTWE HAVE A WINNER Stephen Terry (second from left) celebrates his 2013 Papa Hemingway LookAlike Contest victory with previous winners Saturday night at Sloppy Joes Bar in Key West.Terry,56,beat 125 other contestants.It was the Palm Harbor software developers seventh try at the competition,staged during Key Wests annual Hemingway Days festival that ended Sunday.Photo by ANDY NEWMAN

As two curious spotted eagle rays cruised by, a group of divers from the Washington-based Maritime Archeological and Historical Society surveyed the unidentified wreckage that hurricanes, tropical storms and strong currents have scattered over a site larger than a football field.Mother Nature has a way of mixing it up in a soup that is hard to sort out what we have, the societys president, Steven Anthony, said during a June trip to the Keys. We are trying to put all that puzzle back together, like putting back together Humpty Dumpty, to solve the mystery.Is the submerged debris field primarily a single wreck, perhaps one of the 23 ships with names that include Lion, Mimi, S.S. Oxford and Hope of London that Key West Admiralty court records document as sunk, abandoned, lost or wrecked on that reef in the 1800s? Or is it the remnants of several wrecks, from different eras?And are the numerous cement cylinders even connected to the wreckage? Or was it cargo a boats crew offloaded to lighten the load enough to get off the treacherous reef, which at some points is less than 10 feet deep?We dont know, but we have enthusiastically been trying to pin this wreck down for a number of years now, said Brenda S. Altmeier, program support specialist with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.Not Civil WarOver the past few decades, the prevailing story told to divers and snorkelers has been that the wreck is that of a Civil War-era ship or barge that was carrying cement destined to Key West for the construction of Fort Jefferson or the Martello Towers. But that story was debunked in 2008 after a New York laboratorys analysis of the cement positively identified it as Portland cement, produced no earlier than 1890 and only until 1925.This information leads us down a different trail of bread crumbs, Altmeier said. We can eliminate the Civil War era ships.One of the new theories it that the vessel was carrying cement for construction of the Key West Extension of the Florida East Coast Railway. The maritime society located a 1908 picture of construction of a Henry Flagler railroad bridge that clearly shows neat rows of barrels that appear similar to the shape of the cement features at the bottom of Pickles Reef. Workers also appear to be pouring concrete next to the barrels. But so far, its just a theory.With so few government resources, and 68 priority shipwreck sites to identify just in the Upper Keys, Altmeier says the sanctuary welcomes the help of enthusiastic private groups like the Maritime Archeological and Historical Society, providing them with permits and previously gathered information.The society began to investigate the site at Pickles Reef in 2010, at the request of Florida State Underwater Archeologist Roger Smith. The group has returned each year since, gathering more clues both underwater and on land, working with local historians and combing through archives. Originally, Anthony said, the group wasnt convinced it was the site of a shipwreck. It looks like a big debris field and we thought it could be machinery and maybe offloaded salvage, he said.The group, with no trained underwater archeologists, asked the sanctuary for help in interpreting their photographs, drawings and maps created by their survey work.Sailing vessel?Last September, underwater archeologist Matthew Lawrence of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary looked over their work and dove the site. He concluded that there were lower hull remains of an iron or steel sailing vessel. He also located two mast steps, which Anthony described as rectangular slots in which the masts were connected to the ship.

The Upper Keys team reached the sectional in Tamarac by winning South Floridas District 8 pennant.In their sectional opener Saturday, pitcher Roman Roberts managed the odd feat of starting the game and earning a save by coming in as the late relief pitcher to seal a 109 win against Plantation, District 21 champion.The game with Plantation was knotted at 4-4 into the fifth inning when Sean Walters slapped a hard shot to third base that rolled into left field. Jay Kubida, who stole second after a walk, came around to score. Adouble by Nick Perez sparked a big seventh-inning rally as Keys runners took advantage of six walks to grab a 10-4 lead. That seemed enough to put it away but Plantation quickly answered with three runs.Having run through most of his pitchers, Keys manager Tony Gregis sent Roberts back to the mound. Roberts had only a dozen pitches left in his game limit after his starting work. With the bases loaded and two outs, Plantation got a break when a gust of wind turned a pop fly into a bloop two-run double.With the go-ahead runner in scoring position, Plantations luck ran out when a hitter drilled a liner to center. Jack Machesic ran it down for a game-ending grab.Bryce Wheaton and Perez turned in scoreless relief stints, and Sean Walters also took a turn on the mound.Asidelined player forced the Upper Keys into shuffling position changes for Sundays title game against Deerfield Beach, District 10 champion, with a ticket to the state tournament at stake. Little went well for the Keys club. Deerfield pitcher Dalton Williams delivered a 10-strikeout, one-hitter game while his teammates scored in every inning. The Keyslone defensive highlight game when Roberts, at third, speared a low liner and doubled up the runner to stop an early Deerfield threat.All-stars playing for the Age 13-14 Keys club included Jose Lima, Aiden Hawkins, Edward Jankowski, Joshua Gregis, Andres Albarracin, Marcus Gallen and Ty Harrelson.

For offshore action, most captains are heading to the humps for the blackfin tuna bite, while looking for dolphin on the way out and back. Trolling small Billy baits way back is turning the tuna on. We continue our summer pattern of snapper and grouper fishing. The 40to 80-foot depths and deeper will provide the best action on the reef, especially for grouper, as they are seeking cooler, more comfortable climes.Fishing for all variety of snapper on the reef and patches is most productive in the early morning, late evening or at dark of night. Predominant during the day are yellowtails, while at night the mangroves reign supreme.The wrecks are loaded with mutton snapper, amberjack and jack crevalle. Mangrove snapper fishing in the bay is a great option on a windy day. Once youve caught dinner, try your hand at catch-andrelease shark fishing in the sandy shallows.The weeks bestCapt. Greg Poland fished the Drambuie Key West Marlin Tournament last week. His angler Trevor Gray and crew caught a 32pound dolphin 35 miles off Key West in 2,000 feet of water off the wall. He sightcast a ballyhoo to the fish on a weed line.Capt. Larry Bell and deckhand Alex Bell, of Blue Magic Charters out of Keys Fisheries in Marathon, fished two days with Karen McMichael and Dave Crockett from North Palm Beach. They limited out on mangrove snappers both days.Capt. Chris Klimas and Jason Bell covered all the SeaSquared charters last week while I went redfish fishing with Capt. Tommy Derringer in St. Augustine. What a blast!Klimas and Bell had an offshore trip with one angler, Tony Benedetto, in very sporty conditions where they managed a half dozen schoolie dolphin and some blackfin tuna. The Mangum family, from Smithsurg, Md., had a blast on their shark fishing adventure. And the Williams, Thompson and Murynack families all had fun and productive days on the reef with lots of mangrove, yellowtail and mutton.Casting contestCapt. Spiders Casting for Charity returns Thursday to the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47 bayside in Marathon. The contest runs from 7 to 9 p.m. (new summer hours) and will benefit the Marathon High School Maritime Scholarship Fund. Capt.

Placing second, with a combined weight of 85.7 pounds of dolphin, was team Playbaby. Tavernier residents Capt. Benny Spaulding and anglers Benjamin Spaulding Jr. and Jonathan Fordham took home a $2,500 prize.The events largest fish, a 37.1-pounder, was captured by team Yank Em. It also qualified as the largest fish in the outboard division, earning the team $2,000. Afield of 55 anglers participated in the two-day tournament whose rules mandate that only two fish can be weighed each day, yet three are required to win.Del BrownGreg Vincent of Grand Bahama Island caught and released two permit, measuring a total of 56.75 inches, to win the 2013 Del Brown Permit Tournament that ended July 17 in Key West.

Justin Rea of Sugarloaf Key. Vincent also released the tournaments largest permit and won the award for the most bonefish releases with four.Ivar Bolander of Santa Rosa, Calif., was named the 2013 first runner-up. He caught and released a permit measuring 16.5 inches while fishing with Capt. Steve Friedman of Islamorada. Jim Knowles of Round Hill, Va., was first runner-up for bonefish releases. Guided by Capt. Peter Heydon of Key West, he tied Vincents tally with four but placed second based on the time of the final release.Event proceeds benefit the Jon Ain Memorial Fund at the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust.

to tell the date of the ship and for good luck, he said. The mast steps also indicate the wreck is either a sailboat or schooner. On the first dive last week, Anthony easily found the first mast step. But he could not find the second one until the second dive. It was partially hidden under coral. Meanwhile, the rest of the group laid a baseline of measuring tape down the center of the site and used the trilateration method to measure several of the sites metal features to later be placed to scale on a map. They also tried to estimate the number of barrel-shaped cement features that were on the bottom. Archaeologist Dennis Knepper, vice president of the society, said he saw between 30 and 50. That does not seem like it is quite enough to be on a barge, unless a lot of it deteriorated, he said. The only ones were seeing are the barrels that remained intact long enough for the cement to harden before the wood deteriorated. Knepper usually works on land sites slated for development. In one freeway project near the Watergate Hotel in Washington, he found prehistoric sites and plowed fields from tobacco farms buried under 14 feet of fill. It was intriguing, but they still built the ramp over it, he said. Part of the societys mission is to enhance the publics awareness and appreciation for historic shipwrecks. Anthony hopes this awareness will help encourage charter boat captains and divers and snorkelers to view these sites more as underwater museums than as treasures to be seized. Anthony would like to see the Pickles Reef wreck site one day added to the Florida Keys Shipwreck Trail, which now includes nine wrecks with interesting tales to tell.Its a cultural resource we want to protect, Anthony said. You can do that by capturing the imagination of the public by telling the story of how much terror and fight and struggle to survive there was for the people on that ship that smashed into the reef.Cultural resource to protectFrom Mystery,1B KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Wednesday,July 24,2013 NOTICE OFMEETINGFLORIDAKEYS AQUEDUCTAUTHORITYUNION NEGOTIA TION SESSION Friday, August 2, 2013 9:00 a.m. 4:00 p.m. FLORIDAKEYS AQUEDUCTAUTHORITY 1100 Kennedy Drive 2nd Floor Conference Room Key West, FL33040The purpose of the Negotiation Session is to discuss issues relative to collective bargaining and the negotiation of a revised contract for Communication Workers of America, Local 3177.
