School for Monroe County students opens Monday.Students return MondayAprojected 8,121 Florida Keys students on Monday return to public schools after summer break in the Keys. As it does every year, local law enforcement is urging motorists to use extra care since students will be walking and bicycle to school, and waiting at bus stops. If youre on a two-way street with no median, you cant pass a stopped school bus in either direction. If youre on a divided road with an unpaved space of at least 5 feet, a raised median or a physical barrier going the opposite way of the stopped bus, its OK to pass. Traffic fines are doubled if you speed in a school zone or illegally pass a school bus. We take school-related safety very seriously, Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay said. We have a no tolerance policy for people who choose to speed in school zones and for those who illegally pass school buses. We will be out in force beginning next week in both marked and unmarked cars watching for violators. In Key West, Police Chief Donie Lee urged drivers to be patient as the ongoing reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard affects traffic patterns citywide. As we start a new school year, patience is the most important thing that every motorist can bring to the table, he said. All of the work on our roadways comes at the cost of a little inconvenience while theyre put in place. But its worth allowing a little more time to get around to be sure that all Key West kids are safe on their way to and from school.

Key West resident Lisa Druckemiller, 52, will be on probation for 13 years following her release, Circuit Court Judge David Audlin ruled, so she has plenty of time to pay the county back $16,536.29. Druckemiller was immediately taken into custody despite her attorney, Robert Cintron, asking for a few days so she could get her affairs in order. I was a little bit taken off guard about that because she didnt commit a crime that put the safety of people in danger, Cintron said. She didnt flee. Druckemiller was arrested on July 17, 2012, on felony counts of scheme to defraud and dealing in stolen property. She pleaded guilty on March 6. She admitted stealing 52 county-owned iPads and iPhones that cost taxpayers $23,311 and selling them for $4,778 to friends and other employees, including County Administrator Roman Gastesi. Gastesi paid Druckemiller $899 for three iPhones and an iPad worth a combined $2,325. Gastesi admits he was wrong and, at a Sept. 10 County Commission meeting, was formally reprimanded. Druckemiller resigned from her job in February 2012, shortly after the scandal broke. After 30 years with the county, she had been earning $78,489 annually. Her guilty plea meant she lost her state pension. Cintron estimates the loss at around $1 million. In a letter to Audlin, Druckemiller wrote, I knew it was wrong. I knew better. I had worked so hard for 30 years moving up in the job I loved, and threw it all away. Not only did I hurt myself [and] the citizens of this county that I love, but I also hurt my husband, my children and my family. She wrote that she was under a tremendous amount of pressure from Gastesi to get him personal phones for his girlfriend and minor sons, the equipment to be charged to Monroe County, but the usage expense to be transferred to his personal account. Even though I knew better, I caved in to his demands for fear of losing my job. She continued, I knew this was the one person who could fire me.... Then, after Roman Gastesi, other county department heads came to my office offering me cash for iPhones. I regret to tell the court that I wrongfully accepted the money and provided them with phones. Gastesi didnt return a call for comment. The scandal also cost former county ITanalyst Hank Kokenzie his job. The Key Wester was among county employees under disciplinary review for buying electronics from Druckemiller. He quit in November a week before his job hearing.Former county department head blames Gastesi for starting scandalIN THE COURTS U.S.Navy Lt.Cmdr.Steven Lunch,a 17-year aviator and 20-year veteran,is sprayed with water after exiting anMH-605 Nighthawk in a traditional ceremony commemorating his final flight Tuesday at Naval Air Station Key Wests Boca Chica Field.Lund is an operations officer and has coordinated air shows at the Lower Keys installment.FINAL FLIGHTGoodman pushes for term limitsOne month after another board member questioned the need for partisan elections, Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board Commissioner Phil Goodman is suggesting the district do away with unlimited re-elections. The board is scheduled to consider a resolution at its Monday meeting in Marathon that would limit Mosquito Control commissioners to two consecutive four-year terms. Goodman said hes long planned on suggesting the district institute term limits and that Commissioner Jack Bridgesrequest to remove party affiliation last month was coincidental. Im for term limits across the board, but this [commission] is the one I have responsibility for now. Its something we need to keep a flow of new ideas, Goodman said. Goodman said people on a board for more than eight years get a little bit stagnant, which could be construed as a shot at longtime commissioners Bill Shaw and Steve Smith. Each is serving his fifth consecutive four-year term. Thats not my job to worry about that. Im trying to do whats right for the taxpayers, Goodman said. Goodman first broached the topic during closing comments at the boards July meeting in Key West. Shaw and Smith blasted the idea, with Shaw saying the best term limits are when people go to the ballot box and vote for you or against you. Bridges said hes been debating the pros and cons when it comes to term limits. He was the lone commissioner to support eliminating partisan elections in July. Its one of those things Im a little torn on. On one hand, I dont like the idea of telling the voters who they arent allowed to elect. On the other hand, institutional knowledge is important, he said. But Bridges added that the difference between politics and governing is politics is short term and governing is long term. Term limits do allow politicians to do the right thing instead of worrying about getting re-elected, he said. Among Keys governments, only Marathon, Key West and Islamorada have term limits. Monroe County, Mosquito Control, the Utility Board of Key West, the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative, Monroe County School Board, Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District, Key Largo Fire and Emergency Medical Services Board and the cities of Layton and Key Colony Beach do not have term limits. If approved, the resolution for Mosquito Control term limits would have to be approved by the state Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott.

Joseph Symington, 33, of Big Coppitt Key is in the Broward County Jail on an unrelated charge, but Wednesday, the Florida Highway Patrol said his bond in the fatality is $500,000. The Broward Sheriffs Office says hes being held on a marshals hold. The U.S. Marshals Service in Fort Lauderdale wouldnt say why hes in custody for that agency. Symingtons accused of being behind the wheel of his 1996 GMC Sonoma when it struck a man at mile marker 5.5. The FHP hasnt released the name of the victim, believed to have been homeless, because next of kin hasnt been located. Troopers say they believe Symington was traveling northbound and swerved to the right, striking the man from behind. The victim landed on the Sonomas windshield, then fell on the grassy shoulder of the northbound lane. After hitting the victim, the driver got back on the road, swerved to the left, crossed over the center median and into the left southbound lane of U.S. 1, then fled, troopers said. Shortly after the hit and run, the FHP, based on a tip troopers received, impounded Symingtons Sonoma. Symington is no stranger to trouble. He served three years in state prison, from November 2006 to September 2009, after being sentenced to five years on convictions of fleeing a law enforcement officer with no regard for safety, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. From 2001 to 2006, he was arrested in Monroe County 13 times. His first, on July 21, 2001, was for driving under the influence, DUI-property damage, leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license. Subsequent charges include several violations of probation, possession with intent to sell cocaine, marijuana possession, smuggling contraband into jail, aggravated battery and operating a vehicle with a revoked license-habitual offender.Symington has rap sheet,did prison stretchCRIME FRONT SYMINGTONKeynoter StaffFormer county contractor suesAconstruction company handed its walking papers from a terminated Monroe County contract in June answered with its own papers in a lawsuit filed July 23. We felt were railroaded, Jade Mailloux, president of Jade Mailloux & Sons Inc., said Thursday. The legal term is wrongly terminated, said company attorney Don Niesen, a constructionlaw specialist in Gainesville. We believe they made Mr. Mailloux a scapegoat because the contract was mismanaged by the county from the start. Mailloux and Sons, based in Manatee County, won a contract in August 2012 that could have totaled $800,000 to upgrade facilities on Monroe Countys publicly owned sites to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Money for the contract came from a federal block grant, monitored by an outside firm hired by the county. In May and June, county officials said Mailloux and Sons defaulted on the contract by persistently and repeatedly failing to proceed with the scope of the work in a timely manner, and violated requirements to pay legal overtime and file proper payroll reports, along with other complaints. At a June 19 meeting of the Monroe County Commission, Assistant County Attorney Natileene Cassel outlined the case against Mailloux, citing suspicious payroll entries that changed a workers pay. That could have caused the county to lose the grant, she said. Jade Mailloux stood to speak on the allegations, calling some preposterous. County Mayor George Neugent cautioned Mailloux that the commission would not debate merits of each point, and would accept the opinion of its own legal staff. This is much more legal than we want to get into, Neugent said, urging the firm to go behind closed doors to negotiate a settlement for completed work. Because were in settlement discussions, we cannot say anything else at this time, Cassel said this week. The July 23 lawsuit by Mailloux and Sons includes a sworn deposition from a former Mailloux employee who recanted claims that she previously made against the company. Tiffany Reffett said she earlier supported charges made by her thenboyfriend, a Mailloux worker who said the company underpaid him and refused to acknowledge an on-the-job injury. Reffett said she backed his claims because she feared a man who threatened and physically abused her. She obtained a domestic-violence injunction against him in July. He was paid for everything, Reffett said in her Aug. 6 deposition. Jade Mailloux said Thursday that rather than doctoring the mans payroll records, it was conducting a review of hours claimed by an unreliable worker. Reffett said the injury the ex-boyfriend claimed he suffered in the Florida Keys actually occurred before Mailloux hired him. Jade Mailloux said his company agreed in the county contract to meet ADAstandards but a county project manager insisted on more expensive upgrades that were not necessary and not covered by the contract terms. Thats not what we signed on for, Mailloux said. Mailloux said he believes that charges of shortchanging workers will be refuted. I think the county pulled the plug on the contract too early, without giving us the 30-day notice to make corrections. Now theyre trying to find ways to go around it, he said. There was never a proper investigation.ADA firm let go for reportedly not doing workMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551 Kirk of the KeysOverseas Highway at 89th Street Marathon MM 51.5 743-4256Staffed Childrens Sunday School & NurserySunday Services 9 a.m. Contemporary11 a.m. Traditionalwww.kirkofthekeys.com Marathon Church Of God800 74th Street,OceanSunday Worship & Children's Church 10:45AM Sunday Evening Worship 6:00PMWednesday Night Bible Study 6:30PMA Pentecostal Ministry with a Prophetic Voice" For God so loved the world..." and so do we!

The City Council on Tuesday discussed plans to highlight the citys history in the foyer and possibly plant a butterfly garden outside the building. While supporting both ideas, the council didnt fully commit to the garden because the site would be under construction for so long. Marathon resident Sharyn Flint pitched the idea for the community garden at a previous meeting and requested direction from the council. Aventure like the garden would take a lot of planning and work. Wed like an idea about your intentions, she said. Flint said there is a group of residents lined up to collect money to fund the garden and that her hope is to use it to educate students while feeding the needy with whats grown there. I love the idea. Were still working on Oceanfront Park and City Hall is going to be a major construction site for a long time. Its something we need to keep on the burner and keep our eye on, Councilwoman Ginger Snead said. Keys nonprofit Green Living and Energy Education started a similar garden several years ago on Seminary Street in Key West. It has 40 4-foot-by10-foot plots overseen by a local board that produces a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. GLEE member and Key West Sustainability Coordinator Alison Higgins helped organize the garden. You pay for your plot but you have to give community time. You put in three hours a month with general upkeep, so we do it all together, she said. Meanwhile, the council fully supported longtime resident Joan Manges desire to dedicate the City Hall entrance area to a mini museum of sorts. Manges told the council shes been doing extensive research into Marathons history and floated the idea for a city historical society and larger museum. What we talked about doing at City Hall is very nice. Its the best use for our front foyer, Snead said. Id like us to have a big museum that people could visit but I dont think we have the space. I dont know how else we could do that unless a group decides to [form a nonprofit organization] and take that on. Mayor Mike Cinque said the city-owned events field at the site would be an attraction once City Hall is complete. The 10-acre lot was purchased for $1.4 million in 2003. The city has already installed new kayak docks, parking and boardwalk areas, and picnic pavilions on an oceanside canal near the rear of the lot. Plans are in motion for a half-mile recreational trail with up to 20 fitness stations. We can have a nice venue up there. I think the opportunities are large and if were careful and smart, it can be done well, Cinque said.A community garden,museum among proposalsMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCity hiring Book for lobbyingThe city of Marathon is doubling its lobbying efforts in hopes that $20 million in state sewer funding wont slip out of its hands for a second straight Legislative session in 2014. The City Council on Tuesday decided to sever its 12-year relationship with lobbying firm Floridian Partners LLC and directed staff to negotiate contracts with Ronald L. Book P.A. considered by many Floridas top lobbying firm and Ballard Partners Inc. According to City Manager Roger Hernstadt, 11 firms sent letters of interest to the city when Floridians contract expired on June 30. He said each came from companies held in high regard in the industry, a rarity for a small city. Theyre very excited about what Marathon has been and will be and theyd like to be a part of that success, so were in a very envious position. It just gets down to who youre most comfortable with, Hernstadt said. The city renewed its long-running contract with Floridian in February 2012. The terms were $5,000 per month over 18 months. Council members all agreed that paying more to help secure a large sum of money is in the citys best interest. We need that money and we need it to the point that if we dont secure it in this upcoming session, its going to be even harder the next one, Councilman Dick Ramsay said. The $20 million to which the council referred is the citys portion of the socalled Mayfield grant, a $200 million authorization handed down by the state Legislature in 2009. The first $50 million of that money was doled out in 2012, but Marathon received nothing. Monroe County received $30 million and the village of Islamorada $20 million to jump-start their respective sewer projects. Marathon was slated to receive $20 million of the next $50 million that was expected to be approved in 2013. But Gov. Rick Scott made it clear he only wants to fund shovel-ready projects and the citys sewer project is all but complete. Estimated cost is $101 million.The goal is obtaining money for sewer workMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCouncil discusses rules updateAfter hitting a speed bump in the timeline for a management-plan update, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary advisers on Tuesday will consider a revised schedule to talk about specific changes to protected waters. The full Sanctuary Advisory Council holds an open meeting at 9 a.m. at the DoubleTree Grand Resort on South Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West. Public comments are scheduled for 10:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. Areport from the councils Ecosystem Protection Working Group outlines a plan to hold four regional sessions throughout the Keys so residents and fishermen can talk about how proposals for Ecological Reserves and Sanctuary Preservation Areas could affect them. Those meetings in the Lower, Middle and Upper Keys likely will take place in September, with locations and after-work times to be determined. Aseparate Lower Keys meeting will address the Dry Tortugas. The Ecosystem Protection group intended to wrap up its report on new protected-area proposals in late July but ran into a hailstorm of opposition from commercial and sportfishing professionals when draft maps were posted online. The working group noted that the following issues are of concern and should be considered by the SAC through the marine zoning and regulatory review process: Education, [law] enforcement and water quality, says a report to the full council. Also at Tuesdays meeting, sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton plans to speak on a response to issues, accomplishments and future action on the zoning and regulatory review process. Deputy Superintendent Beth Dieveney will update the council on the new alternative funding sources working group. Recommendations from the Sanctuary Advisory Council on possible rules changes and protected-area alterations eventually will be forwarded to National Marine Sanctuaries Program headquarters for review. No new rules are expected to take effect for another two years. Applications are open for several seats on the 20-member advisory council.

My baseline began in 1968, when I began diving on the enchanting and healthy coral reefs of the Keys, and my baseline was well established by 1974, when we bought our home in the Doctors Arm subdivision on Big Pine Key. Our canal water back then was clear and full of tropical fish, snapper, lobster and other sea critters, all of which only occasionally visit today. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, our canals were clean enough for our son to swim in and spend endless hours entertaining himself and friends. By the midto late 1980s, that had changed dramatically and the water quality of the canals had deteriorated to the point that to swim in them was a health risk. Wastewater, stormwater runoff and easterly (windward-facing) canals that funneled wracks of seagrass into them all slowly contributed to the steady decline in the water quality of our canals. Today, many are impaired. The good news is that Monroe County and the incorporated cities in the Keys are making giant strides in addressing the wastewater and stormwater issues by eliminating septic tanks and illegal cesspits and replacing them with advanced wastewater treatment facilities. In addition, the county has a stormwater master plan that we have seen being implemented in every permitted project along the roads. Yet these water quality improvement projects alone will not entirely clean up the quality of the water in our canals. As the only tropical archipelago within the continental United States, after World War II, the Keys became a popular destination for tourists and new residents alike. To accommodate the post-war demand for seaside living, Keys developers converted the coastal mangrove wetlands that dotted the archipelago into waterfront property. Because residents desired homes adjacent to the water with dock space for boats, and developers needed a source of fill material for construction, dredged finger canals became an essential characteristic of Keys life. Today, residential canals are a permanent part of the Keys landscape. Little did we know at the time, however, the dead-end canals would slowly create water-quality problems decades later. Construction of residential canals in the Keys was initiated in the mid20th Century, before resource managers fully understood their impacts on local water quality and the broader coastal ecosystems. Depending upon how much fill material was required at the time of development, contractors routinely dredged the canals to a depth in excess of 20 feet. Most canals were designed as long, multi-segmented, dead-end canal networks that maximize waterfront property but resulted in little or no tidal flushing. Without adequate tidal flushing, the canals from their onset accumulated oxygen-consuming sediments, nutrients and organic matter. From 1950 to 1970, studies of residential canals that focused on water quality were conducted throughout Florida. These studies determined that canal construction created significant water quality and biological degradation within both the canals and the coastal halo. In addition to the findings published in these studies, residents of the Keys have witnessed a steady deterioration of the water quality within their canals. Afew of the reported symptoms of the water-quality degradation reported by the residents included the darkening color of the water, objectionable odors, floating sludge and periodic fish kills. Water-quality degradation not only presents aesthetic and ecological problems, but a public health threat, as well. In addition, property values are affected by deteriorated canals and poor water quality. While I sit on the Steering Committee for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuarys Water Quality Protection Program, chaired by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the state of Florida, I have made my personal goals very clear: I want my grandchildren to be able to swim safely in my canals in Doctors Arm just like their daddy did when he was a child. For that reason, I want to voice my strong support for our Monroe County commissioners who have taken on the canal issues. Our commissioners approved funding for five pilot demonstration projects focused on water-quality problems in canals. This action has shown tremendous leadership. I have been a resource manager for more than 30 years and I know when we have the science that points us in the direction of implementation. Many of the problems in our canals can be fixed through engineering solutions, biological fixes or various physical designs. Lets encourage our County Commission to continue to move forward on cleaning up our water quality in the Florida Keys. Without a doubt, our way of life, our economy, our environment is dependent on clean, healthy water quality, so I encourage you all to let our commissioners know how you feel. The County Commission considers the pilot projects when it meets for its monthly meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center, mile marker 102 bayside.

Lets call it an alarm bell that state lawmakers and charter school proponents can no longer ignore. As reported by the Tampa Bay Times a growing number of Floridas charter schools had operating deficits at the end of fiscal year 2012 compared to results from a year earlier. Out of 514 charter schools identified in operation, 499 submitted some financial reports to the auditor general. From those, state auditors concluded that 58 charter schools (12 percent) were running deficits. Thats up from 25 schools in the same fiscal warning zone from 2011. Part of this, of course, comes as the charter school movement continues to gain ground in Florida, helped by enabling legislation that was initially championed by then-Gov. Jeb Bush and continues to be endorsed by Floridas current governor, Rick Scott. Scott, by the way, made it a point to attend the Charter Schools USASummit in Orlando last week. Scott, a supporter of publicly funded, privately run charter schools, also spoke at the 2011 summit for the company that operates at least 48 charter schools in six states Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan and North Carolina. Charter Schools USAhas recently been in the news because of reports it had hired Tina Bennett, the wife of recently resigned Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett, as a regional director. All this attention on charter schools comes at a time when the number of private, for-profit and nonprofit charters, continues to increase in Florida. That growth again, fueled by enabling legislation hit 48 percent from 347 charter schools operating in 2007-08 to 514 charters as of 2011-12 (the latest year studied by the auditor general). Charter schools now operate in 44 of the states 67 counties, including six in Monroe County. The auditor generals report recommends tougher financial accountability standards be applied to charter schools. Thats ironic, given that Floridas Legislature has exempted charter schools from complying with the states tougher academic testing and accountability standards. Tougher financial disclosure would require the Legislature to amend statutes that grant charter schools broad license to compete with Floridas public schools. Based on the recent resignation of Bennett as education commissioner, it appears the battle over privatizing education will continue in Florida as long as Scott and the Republican-controlled Legislature subscribe to the theory that private education can deliver the goods at a lower cost than public schools. Maybe, just maybe, the auditor generals warnings about financial accountability will finally open some eyes in Tallahassee. That would be a welcome change from the blinders apparent the past few years.Clean our Keys canals for future generations CAUSEYCELEBRATING OUR PAST Maintain medianShort message of embarrassment: Who is in charge of or responsible for the maintenance of the U.S. 1 median in Key Largo? I realize that there has been a great deal of construction going on. However, that is no reason not to take care of the grass in the very north end of Key Largo. What every tourist that enters the Florida Keys ever sees is the weeds in the concrete center divide and the very tall weeds around the welcome to Key Largo. Its embarrassing and smacks of who gives a damn. Come on, ladies and gentlemen, we live or die off tourism. Islamorada and Marathon seem to understand where the money comes from. Come on, people, get with it.Neil Shelley Key LargoN. Roosevelt may changePotential changes to traffic patterns related to the reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard will go to the Key West City Commission for discussion on Tuesday. Commissioners hosted a workshop with affected business owners, residents and state Department of Transportation Secretary Arnanth Prasad on Aug. 6. After hearing more than an hour of complaints from business owners on the 2.9-mile stretch who are losing money, Prasad said the traffic could go from two one-way lanes inbound to two lanes in both directions with no turn lane by Labor Day on Sept. 2. The adjustment, he said, would result in an average wait time behind turning motorists to more than 10 minutes. Currently, he said, its about a minute. Mayor Craig Cates and Commissioner Mark Rossi are co-sponsoring a resolution that frames the discussion in terms of the potential impact to public safety caused by twoway traffic without a center turn lane. Commissioner Tony Yaniz, the most vocal critic of DOT on the North Roosevelt work, says the state has exercised unilateral control over the $41.5 million project to the detriment of Key West. FDOTs position was and is that this is their project and that they will do it in whatever manner they see fit. I have a problem with that, he wrote on his Facebook page. The rebuild of the citys main traffic artery, running from the intersection with U.S. 1 down to Eisenhower Drive, began in April 2012. When complete, North Roosevelt will include a new seawall bordered by a 20-footwide landscaped promenade, four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide, a 10-foot center turn lane and a six-foot sidewalk on the business side of the road. Overall cost is more than $40 million, with DOT, the city and Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority all paying a portion. The City Commission meets beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.Ultimately, DOT gets the final wordKEY WESTDead boater locatedAFlorida man found dead in the water Wednesday, two days after drifting from a boat, was a veteran diver who was familiar with how moving water works, says a friend who was with him on the boat. He knows what to do in those situations, Steve Weir said of Brian Kowalski, 39, from Trinity, near Clearwater. Kowalski, his 10-year-old daughter Erin, 8-year-old son Jonathan, 7-year-old Caden Wolfe and Weir were boating Monday around Johnson Key, near Scout Key (formerly West Summerland Key). Weir and Kowalski took turns snorkeling, and Jonathan Weir and Wolfe swam behind the boat while holding on to a trailing rope. Wolfe climbed back in the boat first. When Jonathan tried to pull himself up with the rope, Erin said, it got caught in the propeller, and the current started pulling him away. Kowalski jumped in after the boy. Weir said he surfaced from his snorkeling and noticed the boat wasnt moving. As he swam toward the boat, he heard yelling. He got to his son Jonathan, who told him Kowalski had let go of him and was floating face down in the water. Erin told authorities that her father was last seen drifting out to sea. Jonathan is doing fine. AFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission pilot in a helicopter spotted Kowalskis body late Wednesday morning, and called in the Sheriffs Office and medical examiner. Im sad and relieved at the same time, Weir said. I glad they actually found him. Im glad that there will be some closure. Weir said he and Kowalski had been diving together for years and he thought it strange that Kowalski could drown, adding he hopes an autopsy will shed more light on what happened. Kowalski owned a lawn care business.This report was supplemented with information from the Tampa Bay Times with permission.Questions remain of why Kowalski drifted wayLOWER KEYS By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKeynoter Staff

Arecord 23.4 million visitors came to the state during the second quarter, a year-over-year increase of 2.6 percent. Between April and June, 19.7 million domestic travelers visited the state, a 1.6 percent increase from 2012. The number of overseas visitors jumped 9.3 percent to 2.7 million, and travel by Canadians increased 4.9 percent, with about a million tourists. Visit Florida, the states official tourism marketing corporation, said the first half of 2013 was the largest six-month period in the history of Floridas tourism industry. The number of visitors hit about 49.6 million, a 4.2 percent increase over the first half of last year. From January to May, visitor spending reached $33.2 million, 5.5 percent more than the same period in 2012. And the number of people with jobs directly related to travel grew by 2.8 percent in the first half of the year. Miami Herald YOUSCHAK Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNHome Depot is among the large chains that monitors customersreturn habits.This is the Marathon Home Depot.Retailers keep tabs on returnsIts not just the government that might be keeping tabs on you. Many retailers are tracking you, too or at least your merchandise returns. The companies say its in the name of security and fighting fraud. They want to be able to identify chronic returners or gangs of thieves trying to make off with high-end products that are returned later for store credit. Consumer advocates are raising transparency issues about the practice of having companies collect information on consumers and create return profiles of customers at big-name stores such as Best Buy, JC Penney, Victorias Secret, Home Depot and Nike. The practice led to a privacy lawsuit against Best Buy that eventually was tossed out. Each year, consumers return about $264 billion worth of merchandise, or almost 9 percent of total sales, according to industry estimates. Many buyers arent aware that some returns, with and without receipts, are being monitored at stores that outsource that information to a third-party company, which creates a return profile that catalogs and analyzes the customers returns at the store. I had absolutely no idea they were doing that, said Mari Torres of Springfield, Va., during a shopping trip with her daughter at the Pentagon City Mall in Arlington, Va. I honestly think its an invasion of privacy. Torres, 39, says shes a responsible shopper and shed like to know what kind of information retailers keep on her, with whom they may be sharing it, and how long they keep it. One company that offers return tracking services, The Retail Equation in Irvine, Calif., says it doesnt share information in the profiles it creates with outside parties or with other stores. For example, if TRE logs and analyzes returns from a Victorias Secret customer, TRE only reports back to Victorias Secret about the return activity. It does not then also share that information with J.C. Penney or other retailers that use TRE. Even so, consumer advocates dont like it. There should be no secret databases. Thats a basic rule of privacy practices, says Ed Mierzwinski, consumer program director at the U.S. Public Interest Research Group. Consumers should know that information is being collected about them.Theft battleThe retail industry says its not about monitoring the majority of its shoppers, but fighting theft. Lisa LaBruno, senior vice president of retail operations at the Retail Industry Leaders Association, says organized retail crime is costing retailers tens of billions of dollars each year. LaBruno says the problem goes way beyond the small-time shoplifter and involves organized groups of criminals that make a living from the large-scale theft of merchandise. For example, they might switch the UPC code on a $600 faucet with a lower-cost code that rings up at $50. They buy the faucet, then replace the fake UPC tag with the original, higherpriced code, and return the faucet to the store without the receipt for a $600 store credit, which can later be sold online. Its not to invade the privacy of legitimate customers at all, LaBruno said in an interview. Its one of many, many, creative solutions out there to help combat a really big problem that affects retailers, honest customers, the entire industry and the public at-large.No disclosureThe problem, says government privacy experts, is disclosure, or lack of it in many cases. People need to be aware when they make a purchase that if they return it, some information from the transaction may be stored, according to the experts. Most people think when they hand over a drivers license that its just to confirm identity and not to be kept to be used for future transactions, says the Federal Trade Commissions Bob Schoshinski, assistant director at the agencys division of privacy and identity protection. It shouldnt be that a third party is keeping a profile on someone without them being informed whats going to happen when they hand over their drivers license or some other information to a retailer. In some cases, the disclosure by retailers is conspicuous. In others, not so much. At Best Buy, a sign at each cash register states the return policy, and its also on the back of the receipt, telling consumers that returns are tracked and an ID is required. The disclosure adds: Based on return/exchange patterns, some customers will be warned that subsequent returns and exchanges will not be eligible for returns or exchanges for 90 days. Customers who are warned or have been denied an exchange/return may request a copy of their Return Activity Report from The Retail Equation by contacting the company.But many say it violates basic privacyBy JENNIFER KERRAssociated PressCONSUMERS The purpose of the Budget Hearing is to receive presentation and discussion regarding the Authority's Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2014 including the Capital Improvement Plan of the FKAA.

City to rebid cemetery workWith bids to rebuild the sextons office at the Key West Cemetery coming in more than $100,000 over budget, city staff wants to amend the project and try again. Tuesday, the Key West City Commission will be asked to reject three bids that were returned on July 17 and make changes that will reduce the cost. City engineers expected the rebuild of the 875square-foot structure to cost about $370,000 but the low estimate returned by D.L. Porter Constructors Inc. came in at $532,000. Overholt Construction Corp. bid $616,601 and ELCI Construction Group Inc. estimated $642,075. Special Projects Manager Karen Olson wrote in an executive summary that the city cannot justify that amount. Acomplicating factor is a $50,000 allowance included in the cost because sexton Russell Brittain indicated that human remains may be discovered below the facility and adjacent concrete slab. That would mean the builder would need to bring an archeologist to use groundpenetrating radar and preserve any remains. In an effort to reduce the cost, Olson recommends handling the demolition and site preparation in-house along with changes to the door and cabinetry design, among other modifications. The Key West Cemetery, bounded by Angela, Margaret, Olivia and Frances streets and Passover Lane, was established in 1847 after the former beachside cemetery was unearthed in 1846 by a hurricane. The cemetery has about 100 interments each year and about 80,000 people have been laid to rest there. Its open every day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the summer and closes at 6 p.m. in the winter.Trailer parkThe City Commission will also consider granting major development approval that would replace 44 trailers in Old Town with 21 single-family homes. Located at 1015-1025 Simonton St., the site has been a trailer and recreational vehicle park for at least 50 years. Developer Southernmost Cabana Resort LLC, comprising Joe Cleghorn and Kimberly Parker, bought the property in 2009 for $2.4 million from the Archdiocese of Miami. The trailer park abuts St. Marys Star of the Sea Catholic Church. The assessed taxable value is $1,572,152, according to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office. The Key West Planning Department recommends approving the development plan conditioned on the builder receiving variances to off-street parking, among other things. Staff also wants a number of mitigation factors to protect adjacent homeowners from debris and dust. Construction hours would be limited to 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. The commission meets Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.Office rebuild bids come in over budgetKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYCity staff is going back to the drawing board after bids to rebuild the 875-square-foot sextons office at the Key West Cemetery came in at more than $100,000 over the budgeted $370,000.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comVillage likely to get bug board landKeys governments dont have the best track record when it comes to sharing resources. Aperfect example is a mile marker 81.6 lot that Islamorada Fire Rescue has had its eye on for some time. They have a station adjacent to the lot and want it for parking and training exercises. The problem is the village must agree on a lease with the property owner, the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, and then obtain final approval from the Monroe County School Board. The School Board signed the property over to Mosquito Control for $1 in 1977, but the deed contains a reverter clause should the property be used for purposes other than Mosquito Control. Largely unused now, the lot once stored large chemical tanks for spray trucks. Chemicals are used on a much smaller scale today and dont require as much storage space. According to Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle, the village and district have a compromise ready to present at Mondays Mosquito Control Board meeting in Marathon. Doyle said the lease would be for five years, with a mutual option for a fiveyear extension. The village would pay $1 per year to Mosquito Control and the School Board. The village also plans to make roughly $15,000 worth of improvements to the property, including clearing the lot, fencing and gating it and knocking down an old cinderblock shed. Mondays meeting is scheduled to follow a 3:30 p.m. budget workshop at the districts 107th Street office. Other agenda items include: Consideration of a contract with Electronic Data Solutions for a $392,400 computer database system in fiscal year 2013-14. Doyle says the system would dramatically increase the districts efficiency in the field. Theres no doubt in my mind that we need to get the new computer system. Its like changing from horses to pickup trucks; its really old, he said. Doyle says the old system was designed to collect information in the field and store it, whereas updated technology allows inspectors to access information immediately. Its a two-way system where they get information in and information out, he said. The board postponed a vote on the system last month after voicing concerns it wasnt vetted enough and requested a costbenefit analysis. We spent a lot of time on that. [The analysis] essentially shows the amount of man hours it would save per month or year with a new system, he said.

The City Council on Tuesday approved Councilman Chris Bulls request to sign up for Sister Cities International, a program that helps municipalities around the world build relationships. There will be an American sister city and a foreign one. However, council members were wary of possible travel costs that come with it. Travel back and forth between sister cities is expected as part of the $250 membership. This involves exchange between their community and ours. Thats the biggest hurdle we have is whos going to pay for it, Vice Mayor Richard Keating said. Councilwoman Ginger Snead said she looked into Sister Cities International during her time as mayor a couple years back. She said she likes the idea, but doesnt want taxpayer dollars to pay for travel. I wont be voting for people to be traveling over there and traveling back, she said, whichever cities are chosen. I dont think its fair to our residents. I dont think they should be bankrolling anyone to go over there, she said, referring to whatever city Marathon ends up partnering with. Bull said he was approached by Daniel Samess, chief executive officer of the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce, about joining the program. Samess said his board of directors supports joining Sister Cities and downplayed possible travel costs It is meant to be a community effort in its entirety, for sure. You wont be paying for anyone to be globetrotting, he said.MARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com
Keys LifeFlorida Keys Keynoter WWW.KEYSNET.COMSATURDAY,AUGUST 17,2013CLASSIFIEDS INSIDE 5B DIY flurries Theres nothing like soft ice cream with all kinds of toppings.Usually we get it from an ice cream shop,but theres no need we have what you need to make them at home,and as enjoyable as can be.Story, 2B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment 4801 O/S Hwy. | Marathon, FL |(305) 289-2038 Introducing: 40% off Coral spawn a sight to beholdEach year around the August and September full moons, divers have a rare opportunity to witness a fascinating yet fragile annual reproductive phenomenon among coral reefs. Next week, underwater enthusiasts eager to witness the phenomenon also can experience specially planned dive activities during the inaugural Upper KeysReef Crawl. Continued survival of coral reefs is critically dependent on a reproductive strategy among boulder corals like brain and star corals, as well as elkhorn and staghorn two protected branching coral species. Millions of gametes, or reproductive cells, are released underwater in a synchronized mass-spawning exchange, enabling the eggs and sperm to enter the water over a broad geographic area to maximize the chances of fertilization. Predators are unable to consume all of this food. When egg and sperm unite, newly formed larvae, or planulae, ascend to the surface to free-float in the current for days or sometimes weeks. Eventually the planulae settle to the bottom to grow into polyps and form coral colonies. Scientific observations indicate multiple environmental cues may be responsible for the coral spawn such as seasonal lunar cycles, water temperatures, and tidal and 24-hour light cycles. The polyp release date is not exact and can occur before or after a late summer full moon. In 2013, the full moons fall this coming Tuesday and on Sept. 19. Divers can check with dive operators throughout the Keys about joining coral spawning night dives scheduled around the full moon dates. During the Upper Keys Reef Crawl, which runs through Sunday, three participating dive operators are offering specials on scheduled night dives around the coral spawn. Activities also include several daytime coral reef, artificial reef and wreck dives to explore the abundant sea life on dive sites between Key Largo and Islamorada.For details and dive trip schedules, visit www.reef crawl.com.Annual event likely TuesdayON THE WATERBrain coral releases eggs during a spawning event at a reef. Its the perfect time for fresh foodThis time of year yields all sort of delicious tropical goodies. These are in addition to the greens, tomatoes, beans and bell peppers we can cultivate in our growing season, which runs October to April. During the summer, if Im really lucky, a friend on Cudjoe Key with a good-producing mango tree drops off a bag of mangoes on my porch while Im at work. Another friend on Ramrod Key who has a glut of bananas might leave a stem with bunches of finger bananas on the patio table. Recently he dropped off so many, we froze them individually and they are a perfect size to throw into a morning smoothie. This same friend has about 30 pineapple plants growing in steady rotation and its always a treat to get one of those succulent, sweet pineapples. Then there are those thanks-but-no-thanks gifts. Afriend brought over a ripe papaya recently. I have always been a big fan of green papaya salad, which is shredded unripe papaya tossed in a spicy, vinegary dressing with lime and garlic. Whenever I need a fix of that, I find it at the Good Food Conspiracy health food store on Big Pine Key. What a difference there is between a ripe papaya and a green, unripe papaya. Cutting into a ripe papaya releases a really pungent odor and reveals deep orange-colored flesh with huge black seeds. For me, the smell is enough to put me off. Then the taste test. Even if I could get around the slimy texture of the fruit, the flavor is too strong. Its such a shame because it looks so exotic and I want to enjoy it but cant. More recently, my husband and I enjoyed another treat from the summer fresh lobster. Yes, he was one of the many thousands of divers that went out during the two-day lobster mini-season at the end of July. Over the two days, we had plenty to feed the two of us and a few for the freezer. Living where we do and having a husband whos passionate about free-diving spearfishing means I am spoiled when it comes to fresh fish. Nothing tastes better than freshly caught fish cooked hours later, typically simply pan fried or grilled. If we have too much fresh fish, we offer it to friends who can enjoy it fresh as well. Not so with lobster. After mini-season, we froze our remaining four lobsters and I looked at recipes that would work with frozen seafood without overwhelming the taste. I found a great recipe with a simple lemon-flavored sauce and sauteed vegetables and thats what we enjoyed a couple of evenings ago. Its hard to believe after my abysmal growing season this year that my bell pepper plants are still producing, but I suspect I am coming to the last harvest of the summer. My husband has a new gardening strategy for me next season that is portable and involves stair runners and 2-by8 planks. As the project unfolds, I will be able to report more.Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education she can be reached at ShirleyGLEE@comcast.net.Fruits,fish excellent for summer diningHEALTHY LIVINGShirley Gun HealthyLiving Dolphins host tourney WednesdayThe Marathon High School volleyball team is working on the basics rotation and positioning as the squad gears up to host a preseason tournament against Key West and Coral Shores high schools on Wednesday. First-year head coach Carol Miller is finishing up her second full week of practice, but said it was difficult to get the full team on the court with summer jobs and vacations ongoing. Were working on a little more involved offense. Now that we have everyone together, it will take everyone time to get comfortable with their neighboring players, Miller said. The Dolphins feature just one senior, Ashlyn Katz, a softball standout whos new to the volleyball court. Its a young team, still developing with a lot of potential. We have some great kids, Miller said. The Dolphins have been working on a 6-2 offense made up of a rotation of six hitters and two setters. Jordan Roney and Sydney Konrath are likely to handle the setting. My goal is to speed up our offense and run the plays faster. Thats sometimes important to beat out the defense, Miller said. Brandi Spalten returns as a defensive specialist, while Miller said junior Savannah Rodamer is a strong offensive and defensive player. Defensively, were just looking at improving movement on the court. Were using a standard system, she said. Gardine Raymond, who moved up mid-season from the junior varsity team, could be the teams top hitter. Shes probably got the best vertical jump on the team. Were working on her hitting mechanics, Miller said, adding Regan Durkin will also handle outside hitting duties. Wednesdays preseason tournament is tentatively scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. Each team will play best-ofthree instead of best-of-five set matches.The Hurricanes, Key West Conchs are visitingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West High swim coach Lori Bosco is assisted by Judd Wise.KEY WEST SWIMMINGBosco back for 17th yearForty-eight and perpetually tan from a life spent in or by a pool, Lori Bosco is set to embark on her 17th season as the Key West High School swimming coach. Easily the longesttenured Conch coach, Bosco is surpassed in Key West history only by Pedro Fraga, who coached the baseball team for 19 consecutive years, retiring in the early 1990s. Wow, I cant believe its been 17 years, Bosco said this week from her cluttered air-conditioned office just off the steamy deck of the Florida Keys Community College pool. Sometimes it seems like it was yesterday when I started. She started with the Conchs in 1996, when she was already established as head of the Florida Keys Community College pool, which is part of the Mario Mitchell Aquatics Safety Center she directs. Anative of Vero Beach, she swam at Indian River College and later went on to graduate from Florida State. An internship brought her to Key West in the late 1980s. Each year she looks forward to challenging her swimmers to reach their potential. The most rewarding thing is making them better as swimmers and as persons, she said. In these mid-August days, when the Conchs practice at 6 p.m. as they prepare for the season opener Aug. 28 against Marathon, Bosco spends about 15 hours a day at the pool, overseeing its operation, giving swim lessons and coaching. That leaves her little time to, well, swim. I dont have a lot of me time, she said. She wants to be there, she loves coaching kids, said Judd Wise, who, in his shirtless, loud-voiced manner pull, pull, he implores the breaststrokers has been Boscos assistant for 10 years. The best thing for me is having Coach Wise as my assistant, said Bosco, who praised his motivating abilities. I do what she tells me to do, said Wise, a 54-yearold disciplinarian who has been around Key West athletics for nearly 30 years. In all that time Ive never met a coach that has the enthusiasm and love for their sport that she has, he said. If she ever stepped down, the program would be in a world of hurt.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor

Aflurry is simple and it isnt something you can only get at the ice cream shop. You start off with ice cream, usually a basic flavor, then you stir or mix or blend all kinds of things into it. Its not a float; no liquid is added. Its like an ice cream sundae, but with the toppings blended in instead of piled on top. Most ice cream shops start with soft serve because it mixes so easily. Since most of us dont have soft serve machines in our kitchens (if only), we suggest using a machine you probably do have a microwave. Start with a pint of ice cream. Remove the lid and microwave it for about 10 seconds. Test it with a spoon. The ice cream should still be frozen, but should give when pressed with the back of the spoon. If its not ready, continue microwaving in five-second bursts, testing in between. Now youre ready to mix. You can keep it simple and just use a spoon to mix the ice cream and toppings in a bowl. But wheres the fun in that? Ice cream shops often use a stick blender, another item you may not have. So instead, toss everything into the food processor and pulse a few times. As for what to use to flavor your flurries? Anything goes. And pile in as many as you can. The more you add, the more delicious it becomes. To help you get started, weve come up with a bunch of ideas for delicious, chilly flurries.

She is a member of the Nature Printing Society and has studied Gyotaku in Japan. She also completes her work with custom-made frames.

The Whale Harbor Group proudly announces The acquisition of Snake Creek Marina! We had already used all of our bonito stock and needed more. At Key West Bait and Tackle, there are three choices when it comes to frozen bonito: Large, medium or small. My choice is generally the mediumsized bonito because of the thickness of the filet from the skin to the rib cage not too thick and not too thin. I found what I needed and as I walked to the front of the store, I ran into one of my dock mates, who was at the counter. He asked, Why are you buying bonito? Before I could answer, he said Ive never bought a bonito in my life. He then set his pack of freshwater silver sides on the same counter. Its not uncommon to hear skepticism when we use a local bait for our fishing in the Florida Keys at times even from a longstanding resident. I went back to the freezer and grabbed a bag of local mahua to add to my pile. Since I already had ballyhoo that was caught, brined and fresh from a few days before (never frozen), I decided my bait inventory for the day was complete. Bonito slabs and fresh dead ballyhoo were for the mutton snapper and the locally caught mahua, fresh dead ballyhoo and small squares of bonito are used for yellowtail snapper. Throughout the Florida Keys, large schools of bonito are under assault from many saltwater predators as they make their way through the Florida Straits both close to and on top of the reef. This yearly event makes bonito a food staple for the bottom feeders. As the toothy critters take their toll, pieces of bonito that make it to the bottom are quickly consumed; its a true feeding frenzy. Mahua or glass minnows are common from reef to back bay and ballyhoo are everywhere, no secrets here. In years past, our normal stockpile of frozen bonito was meant for shark trips until we began to recognize a trend. It was quite common to catch mutton snapper with the large wire and double-hook rigs meant for sharks whenever we used bonito. Obviously, muttons loved bonito. What stood out even more was even with the cumbersome presentation, it doesnt deter the large snappers from eating it; big slab, big wire, no concern for hiding anything and they still ate it. With this in mind, we started sending large strips of bonito back in the slick on a free line or knocker rig with monofilament leader specifically targeting mutton snapper. When preparing to anchor, make a few passes over the fish show and structure with the chum bag in the water to create a scent trail to your transom. Anchor in the sand close to the edge of the structure but fish the sand with the chum drifting over the structure; mutton snappers love the beach. Ground sardine chum in a minimum one-inch mesh (big holes) bag works best and while anchored, sprinkles of mahua thrown back and in all directions spreads the love. If you are working deep pieces, add sand balling to the process. Getting just one fish to eat can start the feed so every one of the fish within proximity gets invited to the party and the frenzy begins. Time to deploy the local baits. Afew more tricks by local captains: When tarpon fishing, Lower Keys Capt. Chris Robinson will generally catch his bait in the same area the tarpon are in. He has been successful with everything from pinfish to crabs, including legalsized lane snapper. He doesnt believe the tarpon are all that picky as long as theyve seen the bait swimming around them before. They have to eat, he says. Key West Capt. John Smouse fishes with fresh live pinfish and cut fresh pinfish. While many tarpon fishermen are slinging cut mojarra, John uses shears to cut his fresh pinfish, throwing only a few pieces at a time. No one likes to fish next to John when he does this for multiple reasons. Flying tarpon in numbers can be mentally taxing if you are not doing the flying; most move. Key West Capt. Jay Miller always has live goggle eyes on his boat while offshore. Many times he has come back to the dock with the largest dolphin that wouldnt eat anything but the live and locally caught goggle eye. Drifting the patches in Hawk Channel with spreader lights and gold hooks or Sabiki rigs at night is the routine for Jay. He keeps a pen at the dock to hold the bait and feeding schedules are followed by his mate Cory. Many times, we have seen Cory crumbling dolphin roe into the well-seasoned pen, which has a solid cover and plenty of growth, helping the goggle eyes stay out of direct sunlight. These are all great ideas from local captains who have, over the years, perfected the use of locally available bait.
