Story, 8A Navys decisionIt looks like louder jets and more takeoffs and landings are in NAS Key Wests future.Story, 2A Wanted:Some uniformityFew waters contain a more baffling hodgepodge of fishing rules than the Florida Keys, the people who write the rules acknowledge. The problem down here is that its so easy to mix up where you are, said Martha Bademan, a fisheries biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.State and federal officials came to the Keys this week to seek advice on how to simplify the fish-catching situation.Turnout for three workshops Tuesday through Thursday in Key Largo, Key Colony Beach and Key West was modest but suggestions were valuable, agency staff said. We got a lot of good ideas on where the problems lie and some good suggestions to get us started down the path, said John Hunt, director of the state Fish and Wildlife Research Institute office in Marathon. We learned that the management complexity here in South Florida and the Keys does create substantial issues for our fishing stakeholders to conduct their recreational activity or commercial business, Hunt said. Recreational and commercial fishing in South Florida waters falls under the jurisdiction of three government agencies: The federal South Atlantic Fishery Management Council and the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, and the state FWC.Then toss in rules for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park, national wildlife areas and species-specific closed areas.Its confusing to know where you can fish, and where you can land,Numerous agencies, confusing rules causing Keys fishermen headachesON THE WATERKeys doctor convicted in pill-mill caseAfederal jury found two South Florida doctors accused of overprescribing pain medication to patients at South Florida pill mills not guilty of all charges but one conspiracy to commit money laundering.Tuesdays verdict was greeted as a victory by lawyers representing Dr. Cynthia Cadet, 43, of Parkland, and Dr. Joseph Castronuovo, 74, who lives in a $425,000 condo in the Fishermens Cove area of Ocean Reef in North Key Largo.The doctors had worked for American Pain in Fort Lauderdale and Executive Pain in Lake Worth until the clinics were shut down as part of a federal pill-mill bust in 2010. Prosecutors accused Cadet and Castronuovo of using their medical licenses to lend professional clout to what was essentially a drug-dealing operation. Patients scored large amounts of oxycodone and other painkillers from doctors who performed cursory exams and did little to verify that the drugs were necessary, the federal investigation found. In many cases, the patients turned around and sold the drugs on the street. More than two dozen clinic employees, doctors and managers pleaded guilty to related charges in the case. Some, including clinic owner Christopher George, formerly of Wellington, testified against Castronuovo and Cadet during their two-month trial.Castronuovo and Cadet, the only clinic employees who did not plead out, denied being part of or even knowing about a conspiracy to illegally distribute drugs. Each claimed they prescribed medications based on need.The allegations were severe: Cadet was accused of prescribing drugs that led to the deaths of seven patients. Castronuovos prescriptions led to two deaths, prosecutors said.Castronuovo acquitted of causing deathsBy RAFAEL OLMEDASun-SentinelIN THE COURTSSOAK SEASONDOTchief to address problemsWith the $41.5 million reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West a little more than halfway complete after 15 months of work, business owners who have been losing customers money because of the project are pressuring officials for a quicker end to the work.To that end, the ad-hoc Coalition of North Roosevelt Affected Businesses is scheduled to meet with Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad this coming week.The session is set for Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street and is followed from 5 to 6 p.m. with an open discussion.I opened in December 1972, said Arcadio Rodriguez, owner of Banner Tire at 2312 N. Roosevelt, and this is the most drastic cut in business weve ever had. He said in the past year, his sales have decreased by $160,000 about 20 percent compared to previous years. I have to live with it and try to do the best I can, he said. You cant blame the customers because they almost cant get here. The only one who has taken a cutback in salary is me. I cant very well ask my employees to take a hit. He repeated a constantTuesday meetings to focus on slack progressBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comNORTH ROOSEVELT BOULEVARD RECONSTRUCTIONNational flood rates likely to skyrocketChanges to the federal flood insurance program enacted last year could put the brakes on Monroe Countys long-awaited, but tepid, real estate recovery. Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act in 2012 to staunch the loss of the Federal Emergency Management Agencys National Flood Insurance Program, which is about $24 billion in debt after hurricanes Katrina and Wilma in 2005 and Sandy last fall. Specifically, the law takes away rate subsidies for FEMAflood insurance basically the only flood insurance available to most property owners nationwide. FEMAis also in the midst of redrawing flood maps, which were last updated in the Keys in the mid-1970s. Together, this means property ownersflood insurance rates could soon skyrocket from 6 to 17 percent, said Monroe County Commissioner Heather Caruthers. Ahomeowner cant absorb an increase like that so suddenly, Caruthers said. Rates on second homes would go up much higher under the law.

AU.S. Navy report released Thursday recommends an increase in fighter-jet takeoffs and landings at Naval Air Station Key Wests Boca Chica Field along with a transition to the newer, louder F-35 Lightning II. The report, an environmental impact statement, has been under review for years. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus is expected to make a record of decision approving the recommendation in September following a minimum 30-day waiting period. Navy officials considered four options for upgrading NAS operations, one of those being no action. They selected an alternative that would increase the number of flight operations out of Boca Chica from 47,500 annually up to 52,000 and gradually replace the F-18 Super Hornet with the Lightning II. Its no surprise, said Don Riggs, a member of Monroe Countys EIS Advisory Committee and a longtime resident of Tamarac Park, a subdivision affected by the jet noise in the Lower Keys. He said at least the Navy didnt select the alternative that would have boosted flight operations takeoffs and landings up to 57,000. It doesnt sound like a lot but these are the flights that come in low, 200 feet, 300 feet, and thats what has the greatest impact on the community, he said. NAS Key West hosts visiting squadrons to train for, among other things, aircraft carrier takeoffs and landings. Riggs noted that the introduction of the F-35, given numerous cost overruns and production delays with Department of Defense contractor Lockheed Martin, could mean it would be years before the aircrafts are actually in the skies above the Lower Keys. Latest cost estimates peg the development and procurement of the Lightning at more than $320 billion; the U.S. plans to purchase more than 2,000 of the fighter jets. Monroe County has an ordinance that defines the area impacted by Navy jet noise and how the military and county can collaborate on zoning and development issues. That area, running from Stock Island west along the Keys to Bay Pointe, encompasses some 2,532 developed properties, according to county Growth Management staff. The complete environmental impact statement is available at www.key westeis.com calls unintended consequences of the law. Key Largo real estate agent Ana Zalesky said she lost a sale in June on a $647,000 home after the buyer received a $15,000 flood insurance quote. Typically, an owner of a home worth that amount would pay about $2,000 for flood insurance.I lost the deal completely, Zalesky said. And Ive been working with her since 2010. Combined with about $4,800 in windstorm insurance and more than $1,000 a year in hazard insurance, the prospective buyer would pay almost $21,000 to insure her home.You cant justify that, said Zalesky, an agent with Shoreline Properties. Thats more money than the house would have appreciated in five years. FEMAhas almost 32,000 flood insurance policies in Monroe County for coverage of more than $7.4 billion, said agency spokeswoman Margaret J. Cottrill. The backers of BiggertWaters said at the time they introduced it that people living in high-risk areas arent paying enough for flood insurance. The cost to rebuild communities devastated by floods proved to be more than homeowners were paying in premiums.Sponsor reversesBut now even one of the bills main sponsors, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters, wants to delay the rate hikes for at least a year. Watersoffice did not return a call for comment. Joe Roth, vice president of the Regan Insurance Agency, said one of the biggest impacts of the law on the Keys economy will be felt Jan. 1. Thats when rates on non-primary homes a huge market in the Keys will go up 25 percent every year until they reach actuarial rates.Theres no tagged timeline. An actuary will look at the exposure and have a rate in mind regarding what that exposure should cost, Roth said. Theyre not telling you what getting there means.Mel Montagne, a board member of the nonprofit advocacy group Fair Insurance Rates for Monroe, said rates could go up ad infinitum.Part of Biggert-Waters does away with grandfathering of flood zones, which allowed many homeowners to pay less insurance. But effective 2014, anyone in that situation loses his or her grandfathering and youre looking at a substantial increase in flood insurance, Roth said.Other changes in the program could set up real estate professionals for lawsuits. For example, a couple that bought a home in July 2012 could see flood insurance rates increase much higher than anticipated this time next summer. Thats because when they bought the house, they were assessed at pre-Flood Insurance Rate Map, or preFIRM, rates, which are subsidized. But come Oct. 1, all pre-FIRM rates go away under Biggert-Waters.Next July, that couple will be asked to get another elevation certificate, which would likely place their property in a lower elevation flood zone.Disclosure is the issue, Roth said. The buyer may not be aware of this. U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia, whose congressional district runs from Kendall to Key West, sent a July 26 letter to FEMAAdministrator Craig Fugate to delay implementation of the rate increases. An amendment to the Homeland Security appropriations bill co-sponsored by Garcia recently passed with a bipartisan majority. Garcia also co-sponsored a bill that would delay rate increases under BiggertWaters. There is a companion bill in the Senate. While Congress has shown a willingness to delay rate increase mandate under the Biggert-Waters law, I ask that FEMAutilize its authority to administratively address these concerns, Garcia wrote.

Rigoberto Vazquez, 22, is charged with three counts each of burglary and grand theft, and possession of burglary tools. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says the first theft happened in April, when a personal watercraft trailer was stolen from a home on Eagle Avenue in Key Largo. Then on June 21, a personal watercraft on a trailer was stolen from a home on Grassy Road. Six days later, a man who lives on Calder Road in Key Largo called to report his Boston Whaler, trailer and engine were stolen from under his home. Total value of the boat, trailer and engine is $18,000. Surveillance footage taken from under that mans home shows a Jaguar sedan pulling up to the house and a man getting out and cutting the lock on the trailer, hooking it up to his car and driving away. Detectives were able to obtain the cars tag number. That led them to Vazquezs home, where he was arrested. THE PORTER-ALLEN COMPANYINSURANCE Elizabeth M. Freeman David W.

Jeff graduated from Nutley High School in Nutley, NJ and attended Ramapo College of New Jersey where he studied botany and ecology. As a young man Jeff was a volunteer Firefighter, Assistant Scout Master of Troop 147, a logger in Oregon and a fishing charter mate in Montauk. Jeffrey was later a Registered Florida State Fishing Boat Captain & Guide and also a Registered State of Maine Hunting and Fishing Guide. He was known as a true adventurer, a lifelong wildlife enthusiast, fisherman, hunter, and avid artifact collector.

Sarah DAnto of Gorham, ME, Adam Wright of Islamorada, FL, and Laura Kathleen Wright and her fianc Daniel Allen of Winooski, VT; four grandchildren, Liberty DAnto, Ethan and Toby Jeans, and Ammi Allen; his beloved right-hand man Troy Doten, and numerous friends. Visiting hours will be held at Mays Funeral Home, 26 Church St., Calais, on Thursday, August 1, 2013 from 1-3pm & 5-7 p.m., with a ceremony in celebration of Jeffs life beginning at 6 p.m. Condolences and memories may be shared at www.maysfuneralhome.com Flood rates heading northFrom Flood,1AThe indictment said Castronuovo caused the deaths of painkiller customers Tommy Wayne Harris and Michael Grant by prescribing a quantity of oxycodone ... outside the scope of professional practice and not for a legitimate medical purpose. Both physicians also were charged with conspiracy to possess controlled substances and providing oxycodone to people under age 21, among other things.Each faced life in prison and a fine of up to $2 million if convicted of the most serious charges.But jurors at the federal courthouse in West Palm Beach did not believe there was enough evidence to warrant a conviction on the conspiracy and drug charges. The money laundering conspiracy charge carries a maximum prison term of 10 years, though its unclear whether either doctor will face that much time in prison.Hes disappointed, said Thomas Sclafani, Castronuovos lawyer. Hes not as disappointed as he could have been.Castronuovo and his wife celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary during the course of the trial, Sclafani said. He is planning to appeal the conviction. So is Cadets lawyer, Michael D. Weinstein, who called the verdict a compromise by a jury that showed signs of confusion throughout the day.Early Tuesday afternoon, jurors told U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra they were finished deliberating. But with prosecutors, defendants and spectators gathered to hear the verdict, the jurors revealed they were actually deadlocked on all but a few of the charges. Marra ordered them back into the jury room, where they spent the next three hours coming to a decision.We believe this was a compromise verdict, and were going to appeal it, said Weinstein, who was nonetheless quick to praise the not-guilty verdicts as a huge victory.Asentencing date has not been set for the money laundering conviction.Jury acquits in pill deathsFrom Convicted,1A Schools tax rises slightlyThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday approved an increase in its property tax to support $1.4 million for teacher raises mandated by the Florida Legislature. The total raise pool for Keys teachers comprises about $100,000 from the state and the remaining $1.3 million from local coffers. Board members stressed that during their Tuesday meeting in Key West, the first of three required public budget hearings. This is a mandated local tax increase mandated by a Republican-dominated Legislature and governor, board member Ed Davidson said. Im glad the teachers got a raise, but our local taxpayers should understand we dont have any choice in this part of the taxes that they pay. Monroe and a handful of other property rich counties in Florida have to locally raise 90 percent of school taxes. District Finance Director Jim Drake projects matching revenue and expenses 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 $3.68 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The current rate is $3.66 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 next fiscal year.Drake also told the board the district has an unassigned fund balance of $5.6 million, or about 7 percent of general-fund revenues.He said the excess was generated through some cautious budgeting last year. We need to continue to keep our foot on the brake the best we can.Davidson pointed out that best practices for public entities dictate a fund balance of more than 20 percent. For instance, the city of Key West balance is around 25 percent and equates to around 111 days of covered operating costs in the event revenue dries up.Were one hurricane away from disaster, Davidson said, noting the districts insurance policy leaves it uninsured for the first $10 million in damages. Even though the budget took effect July 1, the next budget hearing is set for Aug. 27 at Coral Shores High School. The final hearing is Sept. 3 at Marathon High School. Both start at 6 p.m.Teacher raises are big chunk of the budgetBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSLouder fighter jets likelyNavy releases preferred option for air baseBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com MILITARY KEYSNET.COM

As the Key West City Commission considers opening a 24/7 homeless shelter on Stock Island, there isnt even close to agreement on how many homeless there actually are both countywide and in the Lower Keys and Key West. Texas-based consultant Robert Marbut, hired by the city in May for $13,780, has completed a gap analysis of social services he will discuss with the City Commission when it meets Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall. Marbut said he counts at least 1,422 unsheltered men, women and children in Key West and the Lower Keys based on records maintained by the Monroe County Detention Center and the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, where many homeless spend their nights. And thats still undercounting people, he said. I know theres even more. Marbut counts 229 homeless who have been to jail but never stayed at KOTS; 265 who have been to jail and stayed at KOTS; and 928 who have stayed at KOTS more than twice in the past three years but never been to jail. Meanwhile, each year, whats called a point-in-time survey is performed by the Monroe County Homeless Services Continuum of Care, a multi-service coalition that enlists volunteers to scour the streets, beaches and mangroves physically counting the homeless. Stephen Braddock, president of the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition and chairman of the Continuum of Care, called the point-intime very accurate. The 2013 count came up with 305 unsheltered homeless countywide and another 353 taking advantage of some type of transitional housing, a figure not included in Marbuts report. Of those 658 people, 73 percent, or 480, were in Key West and the Lower Keys. Braddock couldnt explain the dramatic disparity and said he has no clue how Marbut came up with his figure. If you go look at virtually any point-in-time survey, Marbut said, theyre never accurate. They almost always undercount. He called it a very poor methodology. For every number I have there on that page, theres a first and last name unduplicated. In the latest point-in-time report, Braddock notes: It is difficult to count homeless people. Unsheltered homeless people are particularly difficult to count. They are not in places where they can easily be counted like living on the street, in automobiles, on derelict boats, in mangroves, and other kinds of crude and temporary housing. Marbuts recommendation for dealing with the homeless, which fits with a two-year push from Mayor Craig Cates, is for the city to open a 24/7, 365-day homeless services center. Cates wants to put it at the old Easter Seals building on College Road, replacing KOTS, which the city spends $450,000 annually fund. The camp-style center is managed by the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League on property owned by the Sheriffs Office. Marbuts report doesnt contain any cost estimate associated with a holistic center. Speaking generally, Marbut said any successful effort would take buy-in from local nonprofits, which is often difficult. They fight with each other for money, for ego, volunteers, credit, etc., he said. One of the hardest things to do is get all the agencies to work together and realize the problem is bigger than all of us.Bademan said at Tuesdays Key Largo meeting, which attracted about a dozen people.She was referring to yellowtail snapper, but similar concerns were raised for grouper and other species. The folks here are more affected by this regulatory complexity than other areas, Hunt said. Acommon suggestion from the Keys meetings was to create a new federal fishery council that focuses on South Florida. Currently there are eight regional councils covering all United States coastlines, including U.S. territories in the Caribbean. You could not easily go out and create another council, said Jessica McCawley, the FWCs director of marine fisheries. It literally would take an act of Congress. Prospects for that seem unlikely, panel members agreed. Key Largo resident Tom Tharp pointed to the fourmonth winter closed season on grouper in the Gulf and Keys as evidence the rules dont make sense. You put this thing on us that has hurt us considerably. Theyre our bread and butter, Tharp said of red and black grouper. It gripes me that I can go to North Florida and buy a grouper in March but I cant catch one in the Keys until May. Miami charter captain Ray Rosher said, I cant tell you how many people dont know the rules. The ongoing workshops are designed to collect comments for a new joint committee of the FWC and the South Atlantic and Gulf councils that will try to develop a single set of rules forSouth Florida. Instead of having all these different regulations, come up with the best regulations for that species in South Florida, said South Atlantic Council board member Ben Hartig.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 U n cle vs. n ephew i n sealife caseTwo members of an Idaho family are scheduled to appear at the Key West federal courthouse one day apart in September, but the relatives might not be on speaking terms. On July 24, a Key West jury convicted Peter Covino IV, 20, of obstructing justice after he called a Florida Keys fish collector and told him to destroy records of the marine-life firms dealings with his uncle, Ammon Covino, 39.During his trial testimony, Peter Covino admitted that he made the [February] calls at the direction of Ammon Covino, says the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami.Peter Covino will be sentenced Sept. 24 by U.S. District Judge Jose E. Martinez in Key West. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Ammon Covino goes to trial Sept. 23 at the same courthouse on counts of conspiracy and illegally purchasing protected marine life. The animals, listed in arrest reports as four spotted eagle rays and two lemon sharks, were captured alive in the Florida Keys by marinelife collectors in mid-2012. The sharks and rays were sent to Boise for display at the Idaho Aquarium, a private nonprofit operation run by Ammon Covino. Special permits are needed to take protected species like lemon sharks and eagle rays. None were issued. Ammon Covino and codefendant Christopher Conk were arrested Feb. 21.That same day, Peter Covino, an Idaho Aquarium employee, made two calls to the Keys collector and told him to erase all the text messages, and emails, or any other evidence that could link Ammon Covino to the fish purchases, prosecutors said.Ammon Covino was rearrested on an obstruction charge in February and held in custody for several weeks before being released on a $100,000 bond approved by a Key West magistrate. During the April bond hearing, Ammon Covinos defense attorney, Bruce Lyons, argued that the nephew ... this yo-yo acted on his own.At that point, Ammon Covino knew the marine-life collectors were cooperating with lawmen, Lyons said, so it would be ludicrous to ask the collectors to destroy evidence.It wouldnt be the first time a defendant did something really stupid, responded Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow, a transcript says.Ammon Covino is reporting to probation officers and wearing an ankle monitor in the weeks leading up to his trial. In June, he was given permission to live temporarily in Texas, where a new aquarium is Austin is being planned.Marine-life collectors in the Ammon Covino case were not identified in February. But witness and evidence lists from Peter Covinos trial refer to taped telephone conversations with an S. Ercan.Serdar Ercan, 42, is treasurer of Key Marine Inc., a Grassy Key marine-life company under federal indictment for conspiracy to take, harvest, capture, transport and sell various species of marine wildlife harvested from the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for commercial sale and distribution.Federal and state officials raided Key Marines site at mile marker 59 in February 2011. Afederal indictment released June 28 charges Key Marine, company Vice President Eric Pedersen, 51, and Ercan with extensive illegal trafficking in wildlife. IN THE COURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comFirm fined and closedABroward County marine-life firm, Aquatic Trading Co., was ordered to surrender its business licenses and fined $3,400 in penalties and damages for conspiring to acquire illegally harvested angelfish and nurse sharks from the Keys.That decision from U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence King in a federal case came down in June after the Pompano Beach operation pleaded guilty to conspiracy. Other counts were dropped. Business licenses were ordered surrendered as part of a three-year probation period against Aquatic Trading.Walter and Lila Bloecker, the owners of Aquatic trading, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges against them individually in April. They were sentenced to one years probation with 90 days of home confinement. They were arrested by federal fisheries officers in February on counts of selling nurse shark pups taken without the required license, and oversized angelfish. Walter Bloecker reportedly told an unnamed Keys fish collector that Aquatic Trading would list the animals as being imported from Central America.IN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff BICYCLE SAFETYMonroe County Sheriffs Office Sgt.Eric Mixon,deputies Ray Jodlowski and Larry ONeill and reserve officer Clevenger held a recent bike safety class at the St.James Childrens Center in Islamorada.They taught kids about the rules of the road,how to do hand signals and general bicycle safety.

Opinion & EditorialSaturday,August 3,2013 Florida Keys Keynoter 6A Pro fighting has never been as big as it is today, with the WWE and MMA dominating the sport.It wasnt always a huge draw, although this pro match at Key West High School in the mid-1970s saw a big crowd coming out for the action.Photo by DALE McDONALD/ FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALHomeless stats arent adding upLETTERS TO THE EDITORNOAA kills jobsThe National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is at it again, planning several marine closures in the Florida Keys from the Dry Tortugas to Key Largo on major areas where our local commercial fishermen fish. Thanks to those commercial fishermen, we can all eat fresh fish here. Not only will this affect all fishermen and their families, but also business owners and tourism. So many people will be out of jobs thanks to NOAA. Aimee Rodriguez MarathonThanks for the supportI would like to thank the wonderful community of Marathon for the love and support displayed at the fundraiser held July 13. I would like to thank the Moose Lodge for hosting the event and all the people who helped stage the event. I hope everyone who attended enjoyed themselves and I want you all to know how much I appreciate each of you. Individuals who donated auction items were John And Terry Walters, Marty Pfeifer and Paulette McNamera. The business community was more than generous with donations, and I wish to thank them also. I encourage everyone to patronize businesses who donated. We received donations from Key West to Key Largo. Cathy Supp MarathonKey West commission shouldnt jump at new center until true number knownWe commend Key West Mayor Craig Cates for making a push for what appears to be a needed all-inclusive homeless service center on Stock Island, but we also caution the Key West City Commission to move very, very slowly on progressing. Thats because when you cant even get agreement on the most basic aspect of it how many homeless people are there that need to be served? you cant come up with any plan or financing that works. The service center would provide all kinds of help, from overnight shelter to showers to rudimentary medical care, from food service to case managers who could make referrals for those needing treatment for substance abuse or mental-health issues. Tuesday night, Robert Marbut, a Texas consultant hired by the city to study the issue, will present his findings to the City Commission (story, 3A). The main thrust of what hes found: There are at least 1,422 unsheltered men, women and children in Key West and the Lower Keys. To come up with that number, he scoured records maintained by the Monroe County Detention Center and the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island, where many homeless people spend their nights. However, for years in Monroe County, an annual count of the homeless has been performed through whats called a point-in-time survey. With that method, volunteers with the Monroe County Homeless Services Continuum of Care, a multi-service coalition, literally fan out all over the Keys, from Key Largo through Key West, looking for homeless people to count. They look in the mangroves, under bridges, behind businesses wherever the homeless are likely to be. So we have Marbuts at least 1,422 in the Lower Keys and Key West, and we have the Continuum of Cares 480 homeless in those areas (out of 658 Keyswide) counted in January. That gap is so wide that Flaglers train could run through it.Marbut calls the Continuum of Cares numbers inaccurate. But Marbuts numbers count only people who have been to jail or KOTS. And we all know that not all homeless people have a jail record or use the overnight shelter.This is kind of like getting two real estate appraisals for the same property, and one says the land is worth $1 million and the other says $5 million. Either both are wildly wrong or the true number may actually be somewhere in the middle.Rev. Stephen Braddock, president of the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition and chairman of the Continuum of Care, admits the point-in-time survey has some problems: It is difficult to count homeless people. Unsheltered homeless people are particularly difficult to count. They are not in places where they can easily be counted.That speaks to Marbut believing the homeless are, for the most part, only in places where they can be counted.Before deciding anything about the homeless, the Key West City Commission should ask lots of questions because no matter how you count, the two separate figures dont add up. And without an accurate ballpark count, how can you commit money and resources to a 24/7 service center?

GUEST COLUMNEarly intervention can prevent child abuseWe all know it: Leading the Department of Children and Families is a difficult and thankless job. The frontline jobs in the states child welfare system are even tougher. The learning curve is steep, every lesson is hard, and failure, as we are tragically reminded, is far too painful and costly. In the wake of recent tragedies, everyone is searching for answers, trying to figure out what went wrong. From county sheriffs and local and community-based care providers to religious and community leaders, everyone wants to, and should, do whatever is necessary to prevent the loss of another vulnerable child.Getting all of these partners to work together toward this worthy goal isnt easy, but it is essential. Time and again we see that protecting vulnerable children is too big of a job for one person, or even one agency. We all have a part to play in solving this problem that is impacting our state, a philosophy that newly appointed DCF Interim Secretary Esther Jacobo has already embraced.Complex social problems like child abuse involve multiple interrelated risk factors that sometimes develop over generations of family dysfunction, generally rooted in poverty and lack of education. There is no simple, quickfix solution to these issues, and drastic over-corrections in our policies and practices following tragedies have historically made matters even worse.While it is true that more must be done to recruit, train, supervise and retain qualified front-line staff responsible for responding to allegations of abuse, we will never achieve sustainable change in child protection services without a significant increase in prevention efforts that strengthen vulnerable families before abuse ever begins.Strengthening parenting skills and improving family stability, sometimes even before the baby arrives, is paramount to eliminating many of the situations we have read so glaringly about over the past few months. Most at-risk expectant and new parents realize they need help, but help isnt always available before tragedy strikes. Ensuring children are safe and nurtured at home, while stemming the tide of kids coming into state care, has been the work of Healthy Families Florida since its legislative inception in 1998.Administered by the private nonprofit Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida through a network of local providers, Healthy Families is the states pre-eminent child-abuse prevention program. A rigorous independent evaluation revealed that Healthy Families is an effective prevention measure.Healthy Families is proven to prevent abuse and neglect in 98 percent of the children in high-risk families served. Recent analysis shows that 95 percent of children served also remained free from abuse and neglect three years following program services. For the past 15 years, the Department of Children and Families has been an able and supportive partner. Thanks to an additional $3 million legislative allocation this year, the blessing of Gov. Rick Scott and the support of local partners, Healthy Familiesreach has been extended to serve additional families in parts or all of 58 of Floridas 67 counties, which is a big step in the right direction. Bringing these proven prevention services to scale so every at-risk family has access to the help they need will require additional investment, but it is still far less costly than failure. Healthy Families saves taxpayers millions of dollars in child welfare and other services needed to deal with the consequences of abuse, and even more importantly, it saves lives. Other changes to the child welfare system may certainly help to prevent more tragic deaths, but we know Healthy Families is a proven and effective upfront prevention program that helps lead us toward that important goal.T. Wayne Davis of Jacksonville is chairman of the board of the Tallahassee-based Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida. For the Keys, Healthy Families operates with Wesley House Family Services, based in Key West. DAVISHomeless costs highRising costs for county prisoners, particularly the homeless, mean spending more money, Sheriff Rick Ramsay told Monroe County commissioners in budget talks this week. Hospital treatment for one frequently arrested person cost over $500,000 over three years, Ramsay said.The homeless make up about 20 percent of Monroe Countys jail population on average, the sheriff said, but that group has more medical problems that fall to taxpayers.Ramsay said the cost of sending inmates for hospital treatment beyond the scope of the county jails clinic went up to $1.2 million, requiring $300,00 more in the new jail budget. Homeless defendants dont have the same level of medical care before being arrested, Ramsay said. Since many of the arrested homeless are chronic alcoholics, Ramsay said an overnight detoxification can trigger severe withdrawal. Theyre going from 180 mph to zero. Having to send one inmate to an intensive care unit at a Miami hospital causes costs to rise up and go crazy, Ramsay said. It is a big financial burden. County Mayor George Neugent said county and municipal leaders must find a way to deal with those costs. Its a hard cost and a serious issue, he said. Its impacting taxes.... Right now, I dont know what the solution is.Ramsay also said the Monroe County Sheriffs Office needs a $186,000 budget increase for the TraumaStar helicopter ambulance it operates due to a 37 percent jump in calls for airlifts.Its a good thing that [TraumaStar] is available but the bad thing is that with more use comes more costs, the sheriff said. The sheriffs $48 million budget for law enforcement and jail operations does not include any new staffing for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, Ramsay said. County commissioners approved an overall maximum advertised millage of 4.0167 that could be lowered at September budget hearings. The countys proposed $415 million budget hits a new high because of $130 million in capital improvements parks, roads and sewers that have been stalled by the economic downturn starting in 2008, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said. The capital improvements include progress on the Higgs Beach Park master plan project in Key West, which has been idle for several years.LAW ENFORCEMENTFoster care home breaks groundConstruction of a house that five Monroe County foster children will soon call home is set to break ground on Monday. The house will be built on one acre of land on the ocean side of U.S. 1 around mile marker 100.2, near the Key Largo Conch House restaurant.Voices for Florida Keys Children, a local nonprofit that supports court-appointed guardians for children legally taken away from their parents, sponsored the construction. Its expected to cost about $210,000, said Voices volunteer Kathy Lasseter.Lasseter said Voices has been trying get the house built for more than four years because of the lengthy development process unique to the Keys. Its been a long time, Lasseter said. Were very exited about it. Helping her with getting all the necessary permits was Zee Hopman, a Key Largo contractor. Hopman, owner of Zee Hopman Constructors Inc., is also doing much of the construction work at no cost. Foster parents licensed by the state Department of Children and Families are eligible to live in the home. Lasseter said Voices capped the number of children at five because any more and the house would be considered an institution and subject to more requirements. The Keys have many children in the foster-care system, but only 15 DCF licensed homes between Key Largo and Key West. The lack of shelter for innocent children whose parents many times are in the criminal-justice system bothers Lasseter, whose commitment to teens especially has earned her the nickname Teen Whisperer. Im upset our community cannot take care of our own children, she said. There are children who din nothing wrong. These are victim children. That said, Lasseter said the Florida Keys have the best foster care parents. Theyre doing it for the right reasons, she said.Voices for Florida Keys Children has 25 board members.

Retailers expect an even bigger year from savvy discount shoppers as some hightech gear has been added to the states upcoming threeday break from sales taxes on back-to-school items. Certain clothes, shoes, wallets, bags, and backpacks costing $75 or less and school supplies costing $15 or less will be included in the sales-tax holiday, which started Friday and runs through Sunday. For the first time, personal computers, digital readers, tablets and select accessories costing $750 or less, as long as theyre not used for commercial purposes, are covered. The Florida Retail Federation expects additional hiring by some businesses and says electronics companies have already started lowering the prices on laptops and tablets to fit under the $750 benchmark to be sales-tax free. What it looks like is the retailers are preparing for the demand, and theyre marking down some computers so they can slide in under the $750 limit, said John Fleming, spokesman for the statewide trade association. The shopping period isnt on the hype level of Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving thats considered the unofficial kickoff of the Christmas shopping period. But its popularity continues to grow, said retail federation president and CEO Rick McAllister during a conference call Thursday. Part of the popularity with brick-and-mortar businesses is that the tax break briefly creates a level playing field with out-of-state companies that year-round skirt the collection of state sales taxes through online sales, he said. Its one of those times Main Street can compete with those who dont tax, McAllister said. The state Revenue Estimating Conference has estimated the tax break will cost Florida $28.3 million in revenue this year, with local governments out $6.4 million. The statewide projection is up from a $25.9 million estimate from the 2012 back-to-school period that was also three days. McAllister said retailers and state officials have also long supported the shopping incentive because the money lost on marked-down school supplies to fit within the sales break guidelines is made up as more people go shopping for discounts and decide to eat out. Still, not everyone is juiced about the pending taxsavings period. The Washington, D.C.based Tax Foundation, a conservative think tank, noted in a July 24 report that the holidays offered by 17 states primarily in the southeast dont promote economic growth, as most shoppers simply shift the timing of purchases. Also, it said the holidays allow politicians to distract from permanent tax relief and benefit the wealthy.While sales taxes are somewhat regressive, this is often exaggerated to sell the idea that sales-tax holidays are an effective way of providing relief to the poor, the Tax Foundation said in outlining the report. To give a small amount of tax savings to lowincome individuals, holidays give a large amount to others.The foundation also claimed that some retailers may also raise prices during the holiday, reducing the eventual consumer savings.The tax break, as has been in the case in previous years, doesnt apply in theme parks or at airports or hotel gift shops.To find the complete list of tax-exempt items, go to http://dor.myflorida.com Saturday,August 3,2013 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com MARKETPLACE Recent Real Estate SalesSALES vs. LAST YEAR: 131 percentBased on information from the Florida Keys Board of REALTORS, Inc.

While the thought of applying repellent might seem unappealing, its better than a bite from an insect that might be carrying a serious disease, not to mention the nasty itching from the bite. Mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus, and ticks can transmit Lyme disease.The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the number of cases of Lyme disease has more than doubled during the past 15 years, with more than 24,000 confirmed reports in 2011. Lyme disease cases are concentrated in 13 Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states.West Nile virus, first recorded in the United States in 1999, infected more than 5,600 people last year. Since 1999, the CDC has counted 37,088 cases of West Nile virus and 1,549 related deaths. West Nile cases have been found in almost every state. August is the peak month.Its difficult to know which repellents do the job safely, but researchers at the Environmental Working Group, a Washington, D.C., health and environment research organization, spent 18 months reviewing the data for chemicals in virtually every bug repellent for sale in the United States. Although they found that nothing is completely safe, some repellents are effective and relatively low in toxicity, provided you take precautions when using them, particularly on children. Use products in lotion, pump or towelette form. EWG released the results recently and highlighted four U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered and CDC-approved ingredients as top picks:Picaridin.IR3535.DEET.Oil of lemon eucalyptus or its synthetic derivative, PMD. No single product is best for everyone in every situation, but EWGs researchers concluded that these four chemicals can provide longlasting protection from ticks, mosquitoes and other bugs. When used properly, each poses relatively few health concerns. Though DEEThas been much maligned, and in rare cases intense doses have been linked to nervous system impairment, an extensive review of the scientific literature found few reports of serious health hazards when the chemical was used sparingly, as the makers instructions specify, EWG said.Picking the best repellent for each situation can be complicated. More intense concentrations of repellent chemicals dont necessarily do the job when it counts. Repellents dont need to contain 100 percent DEETto deter pests. Consumers should avoid anything stronger than 30 percent DEET.EWG staffers who reviewed available scientific literature on botanical bug repellents could recommend only one oil of lemon eucalyptus/PMD, a processed form of the oil of the lemon eucalyptus tree native to Australia. This product has undergone efficacy and safety testing and is also registered with the EPA. The EPAdoes not require most other botanicals to undergo registration and testing for effectiveness or safety. Consequently, EWG staffers found, there is little data to confirm or contradict the productsadvertising claims. Consumers also should be aware that many botanical bug repellents contain allergens.Research group says Picaridin, DEET top listBY SUSAN SALISBURYCox NewspapersTO YOUR HEALTHSee Repellent,2BSee Cooking,2BHurricanes open football practiceAsolid 2012 season and a strong spring session sets the stage for Mondays opening of preseason football practice at Coral Shores High School.Sweeping a May spring Jamboree with scrimmage wins over Marathon and Doral Academy really gave us a great boost and pulled us into summer, Hurricane head coach Ed Holly said Thursday.We had a lot of participation in our weightlifting program, Holly said. Thats a key since were so young. Now were in good shape to start practice Monday.The Canes start with an orientation session at 5 p.m. Monday at the Hurricanes weight room, then head to the field for three days of shorts-and-helmets practice before donning pads to begin contact. The Canes improved to 6-4 last year but saw nine seniors graduate most of them major contributors to the teams success. Based on spring turnout, Hurricane coaches expect to see at least 30 players Monday. If we can reach our goal of 35, were good to go, Holly said. If we get only 10, then well just have to find a new way to win. Seniors Jake Niedbalski and Benny Cosme are expected to anchor the offensive line, blocking for veteran runners Eddie Dunn, Henry Jacobsen and George Jacobsen. Nick Frisone, a junior, earned the starting quarterbacks spot for the spring season. Paul Pauchey, a junior with two years experience as starter, will lead the defensive backfield along with Dunn, a linebacker. The Cane program enters its third fall season with Holly as head coach. With nearly all the Coral Shores assistants returning, Holly said, Weve got consistency and continuity heading into Year 3. Our guys all know the routine and what to expect, he said. That should give us a smooth start for our fall practice.The Canes play their first game, the Kickoff Classic exhibition, against Naples Community at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 23 at George M.

Repellents should not be the first choice for protection from bug bites, but selecting the appropriate repellent can be important for people in high-risk places. Heres a list of common brands that contain the recommended chemicals:Picaridin: Avon Skin-SoSoft bug Guard Plus Picaridin, Cutter, Cutter Advanced, Natrapel 8-hour, OFF! Active, OFF! FamilyCare, Walgreens Light & Clean.IR3535: Coleman Skin Smart.DEET: Bug Off, Buzz Off, Cutter, OFF! Active, OFF! FamilyCare, OFF! Deep Woods, Repel, Ultrathon.Oil of lemon eucalyptus with enhanced PMD concentration: Coleman Botanicals, Citrapel, Fite Bite, Repel Essential.PMD: OFF! Botanicals.Repellents should be a last choice, EWG advises. Give bugs a smaller target by covering up with lightcolored clothing, longsleeved shirts and bandannas. When walking in tall grass or brush, tuck pants into socks. Use nets or fans over outdoor eating areas and place nets over strollers and baby carriers. Drain standing water.

Orson Welles would enter the trendy Los Angeles restaurant Ma Maison through the kitchen, thus avoiding being seen arriving by wheelchair. His girth as wide as his talent, the director of 1941s Citizen Kane sat in a mammoth restaurant chair with his toy poodle, Kiki. Eager for almost any kind of work in the early 1980s, the one-time boy wonder behind the film regularly declared the greatest ever made had become a living symbol of how Hollywood could abandon its geniuses. For years, the writer and director Henry Jaglom joined Welles at Ma Maison nearly every week. He was Welles unofficial agent and representative, trying to get his friends movie projects off the ground. Over lunch, they discussed practically anything Wellesweight was out of bounds and Welles offered seemingly unguarded observations, at times humorous and profane, in spite of the presence of a tape recorder. On actors: English actors are more modest than Americans, because theyve never had (method acting teacher) Lee Strasberg to teach em that they know better than the director. On gossip columnists Louella Parsons and Hedda Hopper: You dont know the power those two cows had in this town! People opened the paper, ignoring Hitler and everything else, and turned right to Louella and Hedda. On the Irish: They hate themselves. I lived for years in Ireland. The majority of intelligent Irishmen dislike Irishmen, and theyre right. Decades after Welles death in 1985, author Peter Biskind presents the transcripts from those recorded lunches. Welles appears uncensored and its not a pretty sight. Fascinating, amusing and eye-opening, to be sure, but My Lunches With Orson is yet more evidence that one of the wonderful minds of theater and film was in a creative death spiral in his final years. Not that Welles didnt have ideas, but he couldnt find backers for them and that was a dark weight on his mind. Lightening up their chats are his tart appraisals of stars like Laurence Olivier (seriously stupid), Norma Shearer (one of the most minimally talented ladies ever to appear on the silver screen), Humphrey Bogart (both a coward and a very bad fighter), Spencer Tracy (I hate him so ... hes one of those bitchy Irishmen) and Joan Fontaine (just a plain old bad actor ... shes got four readings, and two expressions, and thats it). He has praise for many others, including Clark Gable (not bright but terribly nice) and Carole Lombard (I adored her). Although he appeared memorably in movies such as The Third Man and Touch of Evil, Welles considers his own acting an amateur pursuit. Wellestaste in movies can be surprising. Among his many dislikes are the American films of Alfred Hitchcock, whom he considered burdened by egotism and laziness. Of Rear Window, one of Hitchcocks most popular films, he says, Everything is stupid about it. Worse, he adds, is Vertigo. Fortunately for his sake, Welles did not live to see Vertigo replace Citizen Kane last year as the best film ever in the decennial Sight & Sound poll of film critics. In a lean and lively essay, Biskind captures the essence of Welles and the conundrum posed by his artistic ups and downs. The star of this engaging book, as he was in nearly everything he did, remains Welles. Like Falstaff, a character he loved to play, he is witty and vain and, in the end, a tragic figure. Douglass K.

Call 24/7: 305-293-6000 Go to: KeysFCU.org Visit: Any Branch Apply Now: Your local marine lending specialists As I lay on the living-room floor, I told my visiting 14-year-old nephew Jake Barker to join me for his first lesson in lobster tickling. Imagine a suburban teenager who is connected by marriage to a motley crew like his Florida Keys relatives. How would he explain this exercise to his hockey team?I grabbed the dog bone and set it barely visible under the edge of the couch and grabbed the lobster tickle stick and net. I showed him how to surgically tap the bone at the rear and slowly coax it from under the edge.As the bone moved further away from the couch, I positioned the net behind and slowly inched forward, finally tapping the front of the bone while landing full circle over it with the net. He couldnt help but laugh at his somewhat eccentric uncle. Still, my young Jedi was ready to fly.Lobster mini-season this year allowed homeowners to be able to collect their own lobster at the extensions of their property lines, which was where the second training session occurred, on Day 1 of the two-day season.As we slid into the canal and started the search, I looked back and Jake was in a full lobster journeyman pose ready to drop the net over a mesmerized spiny. Boom perfectly executed. His excitement at the success was epic. As he stood on the dock with his prize, Aunt Dianne snapped photos of the lobster to send back to the family. Jakes training was followed by a lobster-cleaning session and then a lunch date with his catch. Fourteen-year-olds tend to ask many questions, so here are some of the answers I gave Jake as he basked in the glory of his lobster tail, butter and the unique experience.Why cant I just dig the lobster out? Try your best to not touch anything. Catching a spiny lobster is never without some sort of bottom disturbance. I explained that the best lobstering practice is to move the lobster away from the bottom growth if you can and then deploy the final netting stage. He seemed to miss this point, as I saw him disappear in a cloud of silt after a few more were found. He said he got caught up in the moment. I agreed.Why do you need a dive flag? I answered by saying it was about safety and announcing your intentions to all boating traffic. There are lawful protocols that accompany a diver down flag.I also explained dive-flag rules, which include temporarily displaying the flag at the highest point of your vessel only while divers are in the water. I added that U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers take notice of this violation, which can lead to a lobstering interruption and possible citations.Adiver-down flag moving at 30 knots is a dead giveaway to having a limited Florida Keys dive education.Why do you have to measure the lobster in the water? Like anything that needs water to breath, its best to allow the lobster to do so. This also limits the amount of handling the spiny has endured, allowing it a better survival chance with most of its limbs attached; there are no recovery rooms for crustaceans. If you are small and weak, you will be eaten.Cant I just reach in and grab it?You can try, but the damage to the lobster and bottom is one thing; the damage to your limb could be a real issue. Lionfish, moray eels, nurse sharks and other hole dwellers are waiting for you to come into their lair and 14year-olds are especially good-eating to them.This explanation was a little more dramatic and less true than the others. But if you cant mess around with your nephew.... Bug hunting is a staple of the Florida Keys economy and an important memory for many families and friends that have experienced the great times during a Keys lobstering vacation. The training of Jake Barker now sits well in the warm and fuzzy archives of our own colorful memories. FYI, the regular eight-month recreational and commercial lobster season starts Aug. 6. Capt.

The 2013 challenge is set for Sept. 19 to 22. Often rowdy, the event is one of the few tournaments where anglers can fish without a professional guide.Notable and celebrity participants have included crooner Perry Como during the early 1960s, former U.S. Rep. Dante Fascell, Broadway actor David Wayne and Heublein Inc. magnate John Martin of A-1 Sauce fame.More than 20 trophies and prizes are awarded, including those recognizing the individual and team champions scoring the largest bonefish and permit, and the top anglers in fly and grand slam divisions (for the top spin or fly angler who releases the largest bonefish, permit and tarpon slam). Awards also include the playful wet-pants champion titles for anglers who wade from shore. Registration is set for 4 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Key Colony Inn, 700 W. Ocean Drive in Key Colony Beach. Acocktail party follows. Fishing is to run from lines-in at 8:30 a.m. to linesout at 3:30 p.m. daily. Cocktail parties follow the action Sept. 20 and 21 at Keys Fisheries Restaurant, Market & Marina, 3502 Gulfview Ave. An awards banquet is set for Sept. 22 at the Key Colony Inn after the final day of fishing. The tournament entry fee is $225 per adult angler and $125 per junior angler. For more event information and registration, go to www.mibt59.com or call Barbara Hewlett at 3048682 or Laural Keating at 395-1554. There are no Florida Keys fishing tournaments scheduled for August, considered one of the slowest months of the year in the islands, but in addition to the International, September is bursting with fishing competitions.
