Construction coming?After more than a decade of planning,the five-year phased conversion of the 33-acre Truman Waterfront into a destination park could begin in early 2014. Story, 3A. Seafood Festival funding cutA40 percent funding cut to the Middle Keyssignature social event last Wednesday has its organizers questioning the Monroe County Tourist Development Councils commitment to local events. The annual Original Marathon Seafood Festival draws 20,000-plus visitors each year to the Community Park for a weekend of food, drinks, shopping and live music. But it doesnt put enough of those 20,000 heads in bedsat least not according to the TDCs Middle Keys District Advisory Council (DAC 3). The advisory board cut the longstanding events funding from $50,000 last year to $30,000 at a meeting held at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. The vote was 5-3, with Hawks Cay Managing Director Sheldon Suga abstaining. DAC 3 members did so while increasing out-of-district funding for Fantasy Fest from $10,000 to $30,000 and committing another $20,000 to the annual Key West Poker Run. Daniel Samess, chief executive officer at the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce, organizes the Seafood Festival with the Middle Keys chapter of the Organized Fishermen of Florida. Were disappointed theyre reducing funding for in-district events and increasing funding for outof-district events, he said. What also is discouraging is that a lot of the Middle Keys events have more data that show a return in investment, as opposed to out-ofdistrict events that have a much harder time showing that data. According to Samess, 16,559 of last years 21,505 festival attendees, or 77 percent, were not from the Keys. He estimates the event generated 12,364 room nights and $141,939 in bed taxes. But the TDC has made a concerted effort this year to more stringently evaluate events, putting an emphasis on economic impact and the amount of room rentals they generate. George Shattuck voted to reduce the Seafood Festivals funding and said he has a strong beliefthe event doesnt significantly impact room rentals. Its held each March during the height of tourist season. Its a great event to add to what the Florida Keys offer and thats a huge value. I just dont think its a primary heads in beds driver, and thats OK, Shattuck said. Maybe its time we wake up and take a closer look at how DAC III spends our local tax dollars, said Gary Graves, owner of Keys Fisheries and a member of the Marathon Chapter of Organized Fishermen of Florida, which partners with the Chamber. (DAC 3) cut funding to our Original Marathon Seafood Festival by 40 percent, Graves added in a letter sent to media outlets and members, but shipped $50,000 in Middle Keys bed tax dollars to fundMarathon Chamber decries money shift to established Key West eventsMARATHON Photo courtesy of Karen McKeonIn keeping with long-standing tradition,Marathon High School seniors got a welcome ride to campus on the first day of school,Monday,courtesy of the Marathon Fire Department.Former Marathon City Manager Mike Puto,active with the schools booster clubs and alumni association,helped coordinate the ride from Winn-Dixie plaza to the school,where a welcome sign greeted returning students and staff.TRADITION Election slate setIn his bid for re-election to a third term for office, Key West Mayor Craig Cates has drawn a challenger in local civic activist Margaret Romero. This is essentially a rehash of the 2011 election in which Cates, the former owner of the NAPAAuto Parts store on North Roosevelt Boulevard, beat Romero with 2,779 votes (70.2 percent) to 1,087 (27.5 percent). During his tenure, Cates has focused on addressing the citys myriad homeless services issues. The latest push is for a 24/7 service center at the former Easter Seals building on College Road meant to replace the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, also on College Road. Romero is a fixture at city meetings and a consummate critic of what she sees as backroom dealings, particularly related to development. Last year Romero applied to be the city manager ultimately losing out to Bob Vitas. The District 1 race is also a repeat with incumbent Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, the owner of Faustos Food Palace, facing off again against city watchdog Tom Milone, a retired New York court clerk. The last time around Weekley garnered 68.11 percent of the vote compared to Milones 31.89 percent, or 630 votes to 295 votes. Weekley has more than 20 years in elected office, also previously serving as KeyCates and Weekley draw challengers in Oct.1 raceKEY WESTBoard OKs restoration reportAcritical vote Thursday moved the restoration plan for the Everglades and Florida Bay forward but major changes lie years away. Its like knocking over the first domino in line of dominoes, said Eric Eikenberg, chief executive of the Everglades Foundation. But its a very, very long line. In a unanimous vote, the board of the South Florida Water Management District endorsed a draft report of the Central Everglades Planning Project, which means the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will publish the plan for comment in the Federal Register on Aug. 30. When this project is completed, approximately 210,000 acre-feet of water on an average annual basis will be captured and directed south where it can provide ecological benefits, says a project summary. The South Florida Water Management District is the states lead agency on Everglades restoration, working with the Corps of Engineers. This is one of many steps but it is an important one that comes after extensive public participation and technical work, district Chairman Dan OKeefe said in a statement. The plan outlines construction projects that keep water from Lake Okeechobee flowing on a more natural course toward Florida Bay. After this summers heavy rains, high levels of fresh water from Lake Okeechobee now are being diverted to coastal estuaries, where the abrupt change in salinity has been blamed for fish kills and other problems. There is no immediate solution to the problems in the estuaries, Eikenberg said Friday. There also is the problem of obtaining nearly $2.2 billion in estimated costs for the Central Everglades project, tentatively slated to be shared by the state and federal governments. We still have to get Congress to allocate the money, Eikenberg said. Adding new bridges along the Tamiami Trail, seen as a major effort to get fresh water into Florida Bay, is a separate program. Were before Congress right now on trying to get funding for the next 2.6 miles of bridges, Eikenberg said. It would be a hodgepodge of funding sources, but it is considered one of the most critical projects in the national park system. Aone-mile bridge on Tamiami Trail opened earlier this year in western MiamiDade County. The next bridges would be installed in Southwest Florida near Naples.But financing remains issue for long termTHE EVERGLADES$613,000 for new headquartersFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle didnt exactly get the consensus he was hoping for Monday during a discussion about the districts eventual move off its longtime College Road headquarters. Staff presented 14 options to the board as part of a budget workshop, which ran the gamut from lease or purchase to private or government owned properties. The majority of the parcels were on Stock Island, while four were on Rockland Key and two on Big Coppitt. They ranged in size from .25 to 2 acres and at least half have an existing building on site. Doyle told the board there were six options; a short-term lease, long-term lease or purchase of either government or privatelyowned properties. He said eliminating possibilities the board is not interested in would help narrow the search. The commission was indecisive, some expressing a preference for leasing and others for purchasing. Some preferred a short-term lease, while others were open to shortand long-term options. The potential move is all but a reality at this point, as the city of Key West has made known its intentions to use the city-owned Mosquito Control building as part of a 24-hour homeless shelter. The district has leased the property for 35 years at $1 per year. The proposed fiscal year 2013-14 budget presented Monday includes $613,460 to fund a possible move and improvements to the districts Marathon office. The commission hardly discussed potential cuts or shifts in funding during Mondays two-hour budget meeting. The board approved a tentative spending plan last month that would raise the same amount of tax revenue as the current year. The .5069 tax rate is equivalent to $50.69 for every $100,000 in assessed property value. The owner of a $300,000 home in Monroe County would pay $152.07 in taxes to the district. Commissioner Jack Bridges mentioned during the meeting that he intends to propose $352,000 in cuts that would balance the budget and prevent the district from dipping into reserves. He told the Keynoter the largest chunk of those cuts would come from eliminating a $100,000 line item funding the districts other post-employment benefits fund for retirees, and reducing the $613,460 building improvement line item $107,393 to $506,067. The Mosquito Control Board is scheduled to finalize the budget at two public hearings in September.

The program, which is free, begins at 7 p.m. Supremes considerGalleon Bay caseIts now up to the Florida Supreme Court whether a long-running No Name Key regulatory land-takings case makes its way back to where it started in 2002 local Circuit Court. Monroe County and Galleon Bay Corp. are awaiting a decision by the Supreme Court on jurisdictional briefs filed in April and June, respectively. Its essentially a decision on whether the court chooses to take the case on. If they rule in favor of us, well brief [the Supreme Court] on the merits, and if not, it will go to trial here on damages, County Attorney Bob Shillinger said. Wolfgang and Hannelore Schleu purchased the 10.64acre site that would become Galleon Bay in the 1970s. Their daughter, Vivienne, oversees the estate now. The Schleus planned a 14-lot development totaling 4.64 acres on the Lower Keys island, but were denied permits in 2001 and sued in 2002, claiming the county took their building rights away. The couple won a $3 million jury award in 2006, but turned it down believing the jury split the difference between appraisal figures presented by both sides. Galleon Bays appraiser valued the property at $6 million, while the county claimed it was worth only $250,000. In April 2011, Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones ruled that developing on No Name Key, at the time an off-the-grid community with no utilities, was not a reasonable expectation. The island has since been electrified, but attorneys say that will have no effect on the outcome of the case. Schleu appealed to the Third District Court of Appeal, which in December 2012 overruled the Circuit Court decision. Based upon the numerous errors we have addressed herein, we reverse and remand with instructions that the trial court enter a judgment of liability in favor of Galleon with a corresponding takings order and allow the case to proceed to a compensation trial, the Third DCAruling states. The Schleus apparently are holding tight to their $6 million ask, but Assistant County Attorney Derek Howard says there have been no talks of a settlement since the 2011 trial. Ive had no communication with [Schleu attorney Jim Mattson] since then, he said. Schleu declined comment for this story through Mattson, who said she prefers to let the case play out in court. Its unclear whether she still intends to develop the property. Since its been [ruled] taken, they are merely stewards until the check is written and thats not going to be that quickly, Mattson said, referring to the county potentially being forced to purchase the site. Complicating matters is the fact that Galleon Bay has been awarded three building permit allocations through the countys rateof-growth ordinance over the life of the case. Howard said those allocations could have an effect down the line on any ruling or eventual monetary settlement. The compensation issue will be somewhat frustrated by the fact they do have these allocations. They argued that they would never get allocations under ROGO, but it so happens that they did, he said. ROGO allocations are notoriously difficult to secure in environmentally sensitive areas such as No Name Key, part of which, including the Galleon Bay land, is also included in the federal Coastal Barrier Resources system protecting coastal habitats. Mattson doesnt hide his skepticism regarding the issuance of permits. Im as perplexed as anybody else. I suspect theres some finagling going on within the county. In Monroe County, strange things happen, he said. According to Shillinger, the county has spent $851,225 defending the case since 2002. The vast majority ($822,300) was spent between 2002 and 2008, prior to Howard being hired as a county employee. Shillinger said that if victorious, the county would seek to reclaim as much of that cost as it could. There are certain procedural steps that must be followed before one can seek to recover attorneys fees. I cant state definitively that we would be entitled to seek the full amount without further review of the file, he said. The state Supreme Court sets no timeline on deciding which petitions to hear. Its seven justices are on break the rest of the month.Previous ruling holds the county liable for takingDEVELOPMENT THE ENDLESS SUMMER SALE AUG 25SEPT 2PAINTS & STAINS30 %OFF* *Retail sales only.

The School Board heard the Aug. 13 presentation during a workshop at Marathon High School; member Ron Martin was out of town. The six strategic objectives, the result of numerous community engagement sessions followed on July 22 by an action-planning meeting, are filled with managerial language. The six objectives, attached to the motto charting the course to change, are: Outstanding student achievement. Effective communication and community engagement. High-performing workforce. Leader in technology and innovation. Accountable resource management. Climate and culture for excellence. During his remarks, Porter said, Communication, again, I think is something that has been very close to the top of my priority list since I came. We need to continue to open up pathways for feedback as well as delivery of information. In the fallout of a 2008 finance scandal that rocked the district and led to the ouster of husband and wife Randy and Monique Acevedo, respectively the elected superintendent and a high-level administrator, the schools system was described as having a culture of corruption. Porter said the climate should foster trust and professionalism districtwide. This is always one of the most challenging areas to develop measurable outcomes for. Board member Ed Davidson called for adding more emphasis on schoolbased management, an issue that was a focal point of his 2012 election campaign. The only way you get the buy-in is that parents, communities, neighborhoods have to believe its their school and were not nearly far enough down that road. Long-term former Superintendent Bookie Henriquez pioneered schools-based management in the Keys, essentially recognizing the geographic challenges of the island chain and empowering each school to draw on community resources and partnerships. Board member Robin Smith-Martin suggested adding at least one objective, a three-year financial outlook, so that we can project out into the future and shed reliance on everchanging state funding formulas and per-student allocations. We can have a fund balance thats adequate to fund our needs, he said. Then we can make our own decisions regardless of what the state of Florida does. If it surprises us to the downside, we have the wherewithal and planning to adapt and stick with our plan and were not reacting to Tallahassee every year.Superintendent tries to plan for long termOUR SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTerm limit trial balloon puncturedAcontingent of Key Largo residents wasnt enough Monday to convince the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board to approve a resolution advocating term limits for its elected commissioners. The board narrowly voted down Commissioner Phil Goodmans idea to impose a two-term limit on the five-member board. Mosquito Control terms are four years. The vote was 3-2, with Commissioners Bill Shaw, Steve Smith and Jill Cranney-Gage dissenting. Key Largo resident Kay Thacker called term limits an automatic check on the consolidation of power, while resident Fred Nickerson said incumbents have a terrible advantage in getting reelected. Alot of their time is spent on getting reelected, he said. Meanwhile, it was district employees Yvonne Wielhouwer and James Zdan arguing against term limits. This board is unique compared to city councils, village councils and other career type political positions, Zdan said, referring to commissioners understanding how mosquito control works. I look forward to our newer members building on that education and learning the ropes, he said. Mosquito Control is not like different situations. It takes a long time to know what happens; theres a lot to be learned here, Wielhouwer said. Goodman downplayed the learning curve angle, saying its not a commissioners job to be experts in mosquito control. He said hes for term limits across the board at every level of government. You can spend a career learning about mosquito control. Our job is to be sure staff is doing the right thing. They have the real education in mosquito control, Goodman said. Commissioner Jack Bridges said he saw the good and bad in term limits. He said while they limit voters ability to elect who they choose, institutional knowledge is important to Mosquito Control. If somebody is doing a good job at governing, then whats wrong with letting them continue to govern as long as voters have a chance to kick them out every four years, he said. Cranney-Gage said she has no intention of staying here 20 or 30 years, but voted with Smith and Shaw. When I decided to run I didnt think Im going to make a career of it. I think the voters have a right to vote for who they think should be in office, she said. Marathon, Key West and Islamorada are the only Keys governments whose elected boards 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 have no term limits. Had it been approved, the term limits resolution would have had to be approved by the state Legislature and by Gov. Rick Scott.

FKEC TAVERNIER HEADQUARTERS, BOARD ROOMPublished: 08/21/2013 The Keynoter, Marathon, FL 33050 D Truman Waterfront construction in 2014?After more than a decade of planning, the five-year phased conversion of the 33-acre Truman Waterfront into a destination park could begin in early 2014. That is the latest timeline from Key West Planning Director Don Craig, who briefed members of the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board Monday evening on behind-the-scenes progress since the body last met a year ago. Craig said the park master plan now needs to be approved by the Key West Planning Board and Key West City Commission. That will mean a major development plan, with changes to land development regulations and the citys comprehensive plan. Craig said thats needed to change zoning designations to accommodate the planned recreational uses. We are on schedule for such a massive undertaking, he said. We look forward to starting construction next year. The crux of the Monday briefing is a plan to build a $7 million, 250-fixed seat amphitheater on a portion of the waterfront property, ceded to the city in 2002 as part of the U.S. Navys Base Reuse and Closure process. The city has applied for and received Monroe County Tourist Development Council grant funding for $2 million towards building the amphitheater build contingent on starting in the next three years. The board questioned why the grant application was submitted without input from the appointed body to which Craig said the opportunity arose and the city jumped on it. He also noted that despite public sentiment the amphitheater is a priority because promoter and ticket fees could serve as an economic engine for the continuing development and upkeep of the park. Former plans for a private marina to serve as the revenue driver were dashed last year when the Navy closed Truman Harbor to non-military traffic. The board ought to at least review and approve the design, Chairman Robert Cintron told city staff. I think that s what we were called upon to do. Member James Gilleran described the advisory board as a conduit of information from the city to the public. It seems the city has committed itself to this, without taking input. He asked for a pro forma that would demonstrate how amphitheater revenues would figure into the long term park financing scheme; total cost estimates range from $30 million to $50 million. This has tremendous potential, Craig said of the amphitheater, adding that it is needed in order to actualize this park. Your staff is taking the plan you approved [and] moving as fast as we can. Craig said the development will start with infrastructure including a spine of road and utility networks. That will be followed by the development of the amphitheater and green spaces. Next would be a conversion of the former Navy Building 103 into a multi-use community space. Those are staff recommendations as to priorities in the park, Craig said. We are not off track. Costs are being developed and they are not yet finalized. Detailed design plans and background information on the Truman Waterfront are available through www.keywest city.com.Advisory Board gets update on developmentKEY WESTMurder suspect due in courtMonroe County prosecutors continue to collect evidence in their first-degree murder case against Francisco Marquez, charged with stabbing a co-worker to death in February 2012. Marquez, 38, allegedly stabbed 29-year-old Giovanni Perez near a houseboat behind the Ibis Bay Resort on North Roosevelt Boulevard. Both men worked at the resort. Perez was found on Feb. 18 hiding underneath a trailer on 3rd Avenue, Stock Island, about 15 hours after police were called to Ibis Bay and found Perez with a large stab wound to his chest and another on his arm. He was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he died. Police reports indicate officers recovered a filet knife and butcher knife from the scene. Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the fight started on the boat. Marquez, represented by the Monroe County Public Defenders Office, is due in front of Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones for a pretrial hearing on Aug. 29 beginning at 10 a.m. in Courtroom B of the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. According to the Sheriffs Office, Marquez was jailed for two days in October 2006 for carrying a concealed weapon and possession of cocaine; from Dec. 20, 2006, until Feb. 6, 2007, for aggravated battery; from June 8, 2007, until July 5, 2007, for violating terms of his probation; and from Oct. 8, 2008, until March 20, 2010, for again violating probation. Marquez is being held in the county jail with no bond.Marquez accused of killing man on a houseboatBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONT MARQUEZ CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551 By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCity pursues more grants for WaterfrontFaced with a price tag possibly as high as $50 million, the city of Key West is aggressively pursuing grant funding for the development of the Truman Waterfront. Long-held plans call for the 33-acre former U.S. Navy property to be redeveloped as a destination park featuring a waterside promenade, interactive water feature, playground, community center, recreation fields and amphitheater. The city has already received $2 million of a needed $7 million for the amphitheater via a Monroe County Tourist Development Council grant. That funding source is contingent on breaking ground within three years and requires the city to self-fund the difference. In a Monday meeting of the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board, city Senior Project Manager Doug Bradshaw described several other grant opportunities that are in play. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection administers two funding programs the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program and the Land and Water Conservation Fund Program that could pay for, among other things, playgrounds at the Truman Waterfront. Both of those state grant programs have maximum funding of $200,000, which requires a 50 percent local match. Well develop plans for those and hold public meetings, Bradshaw said. He also mentioned the potential for the city to receive development funds via the federal Restore Act, passed in July 2012. That piece of legislation will essentially reallocate 80 percent of Clean Water Act fines levied against British Petroleum in relation to the April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, which subsequently leaked more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.State provides some funds with city matchingKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comevents outside our Middle Keys district? DAC 3 member Ralph Lucignano also voted to decrease the funding. He said he did so largely due to the TDCs stricter standards. Theres always controversy with the Seafood Festival in reference to when they have it. From what I see from [TDC Director Harold Wheeler] and those peoples perspective, they felt people are already down here and it doesnt get any heads in beds, Lucignano said. Wheeler presented Smith Travel Research figures at the DAC 3 meeting showing that Middle Keys hotel occupancy rates were similar the weekend before, during and after this years Seafood Festival. STR tracks national hotel room supply and demand. Its a stretch to say if you didnt have the Seafood Festival that the occupancy would be any different, Wheeler said. Wheeler also pointed out that the Chambers funding application says the event earned roughly $193,000 this year. Why would the TDC write them another check for $50,000? he said. Samess says an event shouldnt be punished for being successful, and added that the chamber and local OFF chapter split the profit. He called the money vital to the chambers survival. I dont know what Fantasy Fest makes, but Im sure its a lot of money. To be honest its a cop out; there are other events that receive the max every year and theyre successful and thats OK. You want successful events, Samess said. The DAC 3 awards wont be final until approved by both the TDC board and Monroe County Commission, which happens in September and October.

Imagine if a government agency solicited comments from all sectors of the Keys on how to best manage lobster, then compiled a document containing all recommendations. I suspect some divers would recommend no trap fishing (diving only). Afew trappers may vote no diving (trapping only). Others may wish bully-netting be prohibited. Increased carapace length and shorter seasons would most certainly come in from some in the environmental sector along with enormous areas off limits to all lobstering. Now, if this same government agency tried to draw up a management plan incorporating all recommendations, there would be no lobstering in the Keys by anyone. I think we can all agree that this would be unreasonable, but we would also agree that it is reasonable to listen to and consider everyones recommendations. The document produced by the Eco System Protection Working Group was much like the fictitious lobster management plan described above. Everyones recommendations were considered even recommendations that were rejected by the group were included. It was agreed by our group that all recommendations should be forwarded to the Sanctuary Advisory Council so they could see everything that was discussed. If the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tried to incorporate each and every recommendation in the hated document into a final rule, the result would most certainly be the end of most fishing (especially commercial fishing) in the Florida Keys. This is unreasonable and was never the intention. Yet, it was reasonable for us to listen to all points of view. If I am wrong and NOAAdoes incorporate all recommendations, which would be the end of most fishing in the Keys, you will find me on the other side of the table at the next meeting complaining louder and using more profanity than anyone at the June 29 meeting. I am not sure how that could be possible, but I will certainly try. Those who attended the meeting from the public were heard loud and clear our comments made a difference. It is now time for all of us NOAA, the Sanctuary Advisory Council, our working group and the public to back up some and take a few deep breaths and ask ourselves where do we go from here. Don DeMaria Summerland KeyMotorists:Watch for kidsStudents have returned to schools. Amid the commotion of the season and the current road construction, it is important to always remember our No. 1 backto-school priority: Keeping kids safe. As we start a new school year, patience is the most important thing that every motorist can bring to the table. 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. Here are some child safety tips to keep in mind: If your child is walking to or from school, walk the route with them beforehand. Choose the most direct way, and be sure the route has sufficient sidewalks, lighting and crossing guards. If a crossing guard is absent, be sure your child knows when it is safe to cross the street. Make sure your child walks to and from school with other trusted schoolmates and follows the tried and true axiom: Never talk to strangers. Teach your kids to obey all traffic signals when walking or biking to school. When biking, be sure your child has a helmet. When waiting for the school bus, always stand on the sidewalk, away from the roadway. Always remain seated while on the bus. Be sure your child knows a phone number where you can be reached in case of an emergency. Being hit by a car poses the greatest threat to any child walking or riding a bicycle to school. As drivers, it is our responsibility to avoid dangerous distractions behind the wheel. Pay particular attention near crosswalks and areas around schools where children could potentially run into the roadway. Dont text or talk on the phone; its not worth the risk of a potential tragedy. This is a good time to take a look at your own driving habits and review the rules of the road. Florida law prohibits passing a school bus in either direction when it is stopped with its red lights flashing. Drivers must also remember to slow down to the posted speed limit in school zones. The Key West Police Department does not tolerate negligent actions that could harm our communitys children. Anyone caught passing a stopped school bus or speeding in a school zone can expect to be stopped and cited accordingly. It is up to each one of us to ensure that our school children are safe. Please do your part and be aware as you drive. Donald Lee Jr. Police chief Key WestFirst above all else,sewersThe Lower Keys Property Owners Association does not want any of our county money spent on land purchases or any other wishlist purchases until the entire Keys have an operating sewer system. Other homeowner associations feel the same and I encourage them and all others to write the commissioners and let them know that the citizens of Monroe County will not tolerate another Hickory House. The sewer system must come first. Dick Hawkins Big Pine KeyGUEST COLUMNIts been a relatively quiet hurricane season for us so far, but now is typically the time when the storm activity increases. Hurricanes are part of our way of life. And so is the American Red Cross. The local chapter was founded in Key West in 1917, and volunteers responded after the 1918 hurricane that devastated Key West. Continuing to the unpredictable path of 2005s Hurricane Wilma and to today, the American Red Cross and its thousands of volunteers have always met the challenge of helping our communities. Among the most powerful and destructive of storms was the 1935 Labor Day hurricane, a Category 5 monster with 200 mph winds. Hurricane Donna in 1960 would again test the people of the Florida Keys. With its eye passing just north of Marathon on Sept. 10, a 6-foot storm tide ravaged the Overseas Highway and 140 mph winds bore down on the Upper Keys. Luckily, most Upper Keys residents had evacuated north to Miami, where 20,000 people weathered the hurricane in Red Cross shelters. During the aftermath, Red Cross volunteers worked tirelessly in the Upper Keys for two months, and gave more than 2,000 typhoid shots, set up shelters in the Upper Keys and established soup kitchens. The Red Cross helped rebuild houses, get businesses back on their feet and comforted those in need. Almost five years later, on Sept. 7, 1965, Hurricane Betsy struck Key Largo and the Red Cross put 700 volunteers on alert. They helped the 12,000 residents who waited out the storms in 41 shelters. In all, the Red Cross spent $150,000 helping families in Miami-Dade County and in the Upper Keys.Most recently, the Red Cross opened shelters following 2005s Hurricane Wilma, during which the American Red Cross provided $5 million in assistance. And in 2008, Florida International University sheltered Keys residents affected by Hurricane Ike. Youll have a head start to get prepared if you have an emergency kit ready. Some of the essentials include water, nonperishable food, a flashlight with batteries, medications and extra cash. Making an emergency plan can give you peace of mind by resolving certain questions ahead of time, such as How will I get in touch with my spouse? or Which roads can we take to evacuate? Take time to make a plan with your family and dont forget to take your pets into account. Stay informed before and during a storm by monitoring local radio, TVand other media. The free Red Cross hurricane app for cell phones is a great resource for information and critical alerts.Of course, the work of the American Red Cross wouldnt be possible without the help of committed volunteers who want to help their community, or the donors whose support pays for shelters, for food and for lifesaving instruction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid.

Hunt, based in Key West, is regional advancement officer for the American Red Cross of Miami and the Florida Keys.Florida lawmakersopposition on health care reform burdens hospitals, doctors, insuredThe Florida Office of Insurance Regulation recently estimated the costs for uninsured residents seeking coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Unfortunately, the agencys delivery reflected the state governments general hostility toward the health care reform, also known as Obamacare. The FOIR report details for the first time the prices of health plans that private insurers propose for sale to small businesses and uninsured individuals. The exchange, required under the law, is scheduled to launch Oct. 1. Policies will take effect Jan. 1. The state report said that the price of individual health plans sold in 2014 would rise 30 percent to 40 percent above the cost of similar plans sold today, and that small-business premiums would rise by 5 percent to 20 percent. But those projections are misleading, for several reasons. ... Competition may also affect prices. Some of the nations largest health insurers are among 11 companies participating in the exchange for individual plans. Five companies are providing plans for small businesses. Overall, 308 plans will be offered. If insurance rates rise in Florida, it will be an exception to the rule. ... Maryland insurance regulators, by contrast, say they negotiated lower prices for plans offered on their exchange. The biggest problem in Floridas health care future may not be the price of policies but the fact that people earning incomes below the poverty line arent eligible to buy insurance on the exchange, because the Legislature refused to allow it. As a result, about 1 million Floridians will be unable to obtain affordable insurance. That deficit, which will continue to put a multimillion-dollar burden on hospitals and doctors to provide costly and uncompensated care, needs to be addressed by the Legislature as soon as possible. Ocala Star-BannerSewer numbers dont add upSince I did the first analysis of gravity vs. low pressure forCudjoe Gardenssewer system, I have been dismayed that my results were so far off from that of the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and Matthews Consulting. Last week, we were able to physically find the complete and recent analysis of Cudjoe Gardens as an all-gravity system vs. a hybrid system. The results showed that Cudjoe Gardens should be all gravity based on a 20-year life-cycle cost. I kept mulling over why the Matthews results were so skewed. An analysis shows how applying Matthewsassumptions are out of line with reality. First, the FKAAhas requested an increase of five full-time equivalents to handle the work on the Cudjoe Regional sewer system. This appears reasonable on the surface and is based on their operations management input. Alook at the Matthews modeling shows that nine FTEs would be required. More importantly, it estimates that the maintenance costs for gravity is four times that for grinder pumps per equivalent dwelling unit. With these assumptions, it is very difficult to ever show gravity is more cost-effective. I must conclude that either Matthews and the FKAAhave never really looked at their numbers for reasonableness or they knew exactly what they were doing and assumed no one would ever dig into the weeds to see the real truth.Walt Drabinski Cudjoe GardensGreat end to summer campThe Kreative Kids Christian Academy brought summer camp to a close with a fishing trip on the Sea King.

BusinessState jobless rate holds steadyFloridas unemployment rate has held steady through the front part of the summer, says the state Department of Economic Opportunity. Bolstered by private-sector job growth in fields such as automotive sales and repair, home maintenance and garden supply, transportation and utilities, the states unemployment rate stood at 7.1 percent in July, the same as in May and June. Monthly private-sector gains are offset by a drop of 9,400 local, state and feder-al jobs across Florida, along with a slight dip in manufacturing jobs. The jobless estimate comes with a statewide workforce at 9.4 million, fluctuating down 7,000 from April when unemployment stood at 7.2 percent. The monthly mark also keeps the state below the national average now at 7.4 percent for the fifth consecutive month. Across the state, Monroe County, which includes the Florida Keys, continued to have the lowest jobless numbers, standing at 4.2 percent in July, up from 4.1 percent in June but down from 5.3 percent a year earlier.The agriculture-dependent Hendry County held the highest rate in the state at 15.5 percent, up from 13.6 percent in June.Three other counties also hit the double-digit mark Flagler and St. Lucie, both at 10.4 percent, and Putnam, at 10.0 percent. Ayear ago, 19 counties recorded unemployment higher than 10.0 percent. In a release from Gov. Rick Scotts office, Scott pointed to new private-sector jobs as bringing him halfway to a goal of creating 700,000 within seven years of taking office.The number would still be about 132,000 jobs short of the total jobs that state records say were lost while former Republican Charlie Crist, the long-rumored 2014 gubernatorial candidate as a Democrat, was in the governors mansion. Crists time in office coincided with the global economic meltdown. Aforecast published in July by the University of Central Floridas Institute for Economic Competitiveness Center anticipates the pace of unemployment to continue down, but at a more moderate pace, landing at 6 percent in the second half of 2016, as the labor force grows. But the report cautions that the implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act could alter projections. Underemployment nationally and in the state will bear watching in the months to come, as there have been indications that companies may rely more upon part-time workers to fill their labor needs, to avoid the costs of providing healthcare or the penalties for not doing so for fulltime employees, the report says. Orlando-based Darden Restaurants received a backlash last December when it announced plans to expand part-time work to offset pending Affordable Care Act requirements. The university report notes that if Darden publicly announced such plans, tens of thousands of other companies large and small are contemplating it, as well.The Florida Keys have the fewest unemployed peopleTHE WORKFORCEBy JIM TURNERNews Service of FloridaGRATITUDE TO INTERNS Dr. Robert Foley, owner of the Upper Keys Veterinary Hospital, presents veterinary interns Emily Eason and Haley Olson with leather medical bags as a token of his appreciation for their work this summer at the Plantation Key animal medical facility.

In New Town District 3, Commissioner Billy Wardlow, a former city fire chief, was re-elected to his second term in office. Since his entrance to local politics in 2009, Wardlow has doggedly pushed for a new Old Town fire station to replace the decrepit outpost at 525 Angela St. After myriad delays, that $5 million project is funded and bid; construction is expected to start soon. In Bahama Village District 6, Commissioner Clayton Lopez was elected to a third consecutive term. He has also focused on capital projects, particularly an ongoing rebuild of Nelson English and Willie Ward parks on Thomas Street. Lopez has also secured $1 million from the sale last year of part of the Pier House Resort and Caribbean Spa to use for a planned rebuild of the Frederick Douglass Gym and Community Center on Emma Street. Commissioners usually serve a four year term, but this election cycle will be for three-year terms as Key West moves its schedule to align with election cycles held at the county, state and federal level. That means Wardlow and Lopez will serve until 2016, when city commission terms will reset at four years. Peter Batty, a Realtor and deacon at St. Marys Star of the Sea Catholic Church, was automatically re-elected to his third consecutive term on the city Utility Board. The five-person Utility Board meets twice monthly and sets policy for Keys Energy Services. Members are elected at large and serve four-year terms, although the Utility Board is following the citys lead and using truncated terms before normalizing again in 2016. Even though Keys Energy provides electricity from the Seven Mile Bridge south, only Key West residents are allowed to run for the Utility Board.Batty wins third term on Utility Bd.KEY WEST Board approves $404,000 database bidFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Commissioner Phil Goodman said he wanted a cost-benefit analysis before signing off on a pricey new computer database system in the 2013-14 fiscal year budget. He got that and then some Monday, as district Operations Director Andrea Leal gave the board a detailed breakdown highlighting the numerous benefits a new system would bring to the district. In addition, Leal outlined an estimated $200,000 cost savings per year mostly in soft costs like man hours. The board unanimously approved finalizing a roughly $404,000 contract with Electronic Data Solutions that Leal said would be paid off over the next three fiscal years. That includes the system and various supporting licenses. The district switched from a manual to computer system in 2002, which greatly increased efficiency in the field. We understand whats going on up and down the Keys. Its helped us be more timely and accurate, Leal said. The problem now is the system is fast becoming obsolete, Leal said. Its not been supported on desktop computers since 2011 and on mobile handheld devices since 2008. With no replacement devices or software fixes available, the district would be forced by next year to use laptops in the field to make it until the next budget cycle. After laying out holes in the current system, Leal went point by point through improvements with the new system. That includes a new user interface that would save inspectors an estimated 2,400 man hours per year entering information on current devices. The savings would be $52,800 per year, Leal said. Fully integrated new handheld devices would allow instant two-way communication in the field, as opposed to collecting and storing data. That feature is estimated to save 1,056 man hours and $23,232 per year. The majority of [the savings] represents time. In my opinion, that is what our inspectors need. Right now the inspectors are spread very thin, she said. In other business Monday: The board unanimously approved a lease giving the village of Islamorada control over a mile marker 81.6 lot owned by the district. The lot was used previously for chemical storage, but the Islamorada Fire Rescue Department plans to use the lot for parking and training purposes. It has a station adjacent to the lot. The lease is for five years, with a mutual option for a five-year extension. 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. Unanimously approved a $110,500 bid from Marathonbased Can Do Construction to construct second-floor office space at the districts 107th Street Marathon office. The remodel would essentially mirror the ground floor, with eight offices and storage space. Staff savings cited with new computer systemMOSQUITO CONTROLBody found Monday still unidentifiedThe Monroe County Sheriffs Office is continuing efforts to identify the body of a man found floating about a mile off the Upper Keys Saturday. Aboater discovered the body on the bayside around mile marker 98 of U.S. 1 and called in a report. The Sheriffs office said the boater stayed with the body until the U.S. Coast Guard and a Sheriffs deputy arrived at the scene about 7:30 p.m. The body was described as a white man, most likely age 35 to 45, with short brown hair and no facial hair. He was about 5-foot-9 to 5-foot10 and weighed about 170 pounds. The corpse has several tattoos, including a mermaid on the stomach, a sun and moon on the torsos right side and on the underside of the upper arm a tattoo that reads I am what I am. The victim was wearing brown shorts with a blue cloth belt and carried no identification. Detective Manny Cuervo said there were no obvious signs of foul play. There are no people reported missing fitting the description of the body.

What about your knowledge of U.S.Army Gen.Omar Bradley? See if you can complete our crossword puzzle without too much headache, 2B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Students try tagging sharksSharks abound in the waters off Florida. But not on this day at this particular spot off the Upper Keys as some young scientists are on watch for them. About a dozen high school students, guests of the University of Miamis marine research program, went aboard the vessel CurtA-Sea. Their mission: Help scientists capture sharks, measure them, take blood and conduct other tests before tagging them so they can be tracked. The sharks would then be released back into the ocean. Students including 14year-old Kyle Truesdell kissed chunks of fish, placed the bait on 10 weighted hooks and waited. And waited. And waited some more. For six hours. But on this day, no sharks were biting. Catherine Macdonald, lab manager for UMs R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program, has been tagging sharks for 10 years. Although some students got seasick or stung by jellyfish while swimming, Macdonald tried to make the early August program a learning experience. If there are no sharks, there is a reason for it, she said. Whether its a change in barometric pressure, the presence of all these jellyfish or its the water temperature, I dont really know. But the more days we have like this the better able we are to sort of look at that data and see what it might be telling us. And while there were no sharks to catch, organizers hope these students will be hooked on science. Each summer, nearly five dozen students are immersed in a six-week marine science and technology program with activities at the Miami Museum of Science and other facilities. The students work in teams to complete hands-on research projects. Leandra Gonzalez wants to be a marine biologist. She said she was disappointed she didnt get to tag any sharks. The data the students help gather serves to evaluate the size of shark populations and record crucial habitats for those populations. The information also allows scientists to determine ways to help some of the shark populations that have declined dramatically to rebuild.Everybody thinks [sharks]are these dangerous things in the ocean and that theyre monsters, but theyre mostly misunderstood, said the 17-year-old Gonzalez of Miami, noting most sharks are actually harmless. Gonzalez and most of the other South Florida students are part of Upward Bound, a federal program that helps teens who would be the first in their family to attend college to succeed at getting into universities. The program aims to steer them toward degrees in science, math or technology. The program with the UM shark researchers brings out 1,500 high school students every year for the daylong shark outing. Shark populations had been in decline worldwide for decades, with overfishing and a decline in coral reefs among culprits blamed. Sharks have slow growth rates, mature late in life and produce few offspring. Anumber of shark species are already protected by regulations in both state and federal watersMisunderstoodBut nowhere are these warm water creatures more misunderstood than in Florida, shark experts say. More than half of all shark attacks in the U.S. occur in the Sunshine State, according to the International Shark Attack File compiled by the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida.

Look for birds and weed lines anywhere from 200 feet and deeper. There are also good numbers of skipjack and blackfin tuna in the same areas as the dolphin. To get bites, youll want to use smaller lures, such as billy baits like the mini turbo, dropped way back behind the boat. The trick is to get out in front of the general direction in which the school is heading and troll your baits through the school without actually driving your boat through the fish. The wrecks are holding mutton snapper as well as amberjacks, almaco jacks and large jack crevalles. Live ballyhoo or live pinfish are your baits of choice. On the reef, the yellowtail and mangrove snapper action continues in earnest. The best areas for the yellowtails are 50 to 70 feet of water, whereas the mangroves are in shallower at 30 to 40 feet. There are also plenty of mangroves on the patch reefs. Keeper size yellowtails are there, too, but not the real big flags you find on the reef. In the bay, the mangrove bite remains consistent on the grass banks and inshore wrecks. There are also lots of fun fish, such as jack crevalles and small cobia, prowling these areas. Fresh chunks of pinfish or ballyhoo are working for the mangroves and live pinfish for the jacks and cobia. Lobstering continues to be productive in Florida Bay, with many bug hunters reporting specimens two pounds or better.The weeks best catchesDavid Denholz and family from Fort Myers spent a day at the humps with Capt. George Griffin aboard the Pips 36 out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. They came back with a nice bunch of tuna. Capt. Zach Willis guided the Dorenkamps, from Treasure Island, on one of the Pips 20-foot Cape Horn rental boats to an excellent catch of yellowtail and mangrove snappers. Capt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-Em-All Charters out of Captain Pips, reports lots of dolphin in the 12to 18pound class, with usually at least a few 20-pounders thrown in for added fun. Inshore, he s catching nice mangroves and mediumsized yellowtails. Mike and Justin Porciello, from New Jersey, fished the edge of the reef just inside the color change with Shelar and landed a 10-foot tiger shark along with a giant silky. Fishing on the Klimax for SeaSquared Charters, Capt. Chris Klimas had a couple of offshore trips that produced tuna and dolphin, including a 41-pound bull. He also did some family fun fishing for snappers. The SeaSquared spent much of the week shallowwater shark fishing, with landings from nine to sixteen lemons, with snapper fishing on the reef and in the bay filling in the blanks. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, reports great offshore fishing for dolphin if you can find some grass before seeing the mountains of Cuba. On the reef, bonito and barracuda are eating trolled ballyhoo and, in the harbor, the tarpon are still taking cut shrimp trash. Snapper fishing has been great with plenty of yellowtails and big mangroves, and the sharks in the gulf are eating hard and keeping anglers busy with Goliath grouper and mackerel mixed in.Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, reef/wreck, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway Marathon.

You have to pull a lot together because the state changed a lot of rules, not allowing contact for six days where it used to be three. So youre pressed to get a lot of things done in a short time, coach Lance Martin said. Not helping matters is the fact that the Dolphinsroster is short several returning seniors, some due to injury and others to grades. We dont have the senior leadership I thought we would, but the ones we do have are doing a good job, Martin said. Thats why Martin said the coaching staff has been focused on preparing younger players for unexpectedly increased roles this season. Weve been looking at younger kids and trying to get them up to speed as quick as possible, he said. Sophomore Max Elliot and senior Roberto Perez, the incumbent, are still battling it out for starting quarterback honors, but Martin said Elliot has pulled ahead in the past week with Perez sidelined with a nagging injury. In addition, Perez brings versatility to the offense when he doesnt line up under center. Were a better team when we move [Perez] around and use him at receiver and stuff, Martin said. Other than quarterback, Martin said the roster and player positions are all but set in advance of Thursdays preseason Kickoff Classic against North Miami Beach-area Hillel Community School. Carries should be spread around in Marathons runheavy wing-Toffense, as a dozen players have running back listed as one of their positions. But quantity doesnt always mean quality, Martin said. We were really lacking in the spring for running backs, but we have a couple kids that got their grades in order that will be able to play, he said. That includes senior Peter Corcoran, a solid player who doubles as a linebacker on defense. Thursdays game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Florida International Universitys north campus stadium in Miami.MARATHON FOOTBALLBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comChris Johnson CaptainsColumn

Occasionally there is a worse injury and about one fatality of per decade, on average. We are seeing more shark attacks numerically but that is not a new trend, said George Burgess, director of the museums Florida Program for Shark Research. We see more sharks now than we saw ten or 20 years ago because there are more sharks and more people in the water. Yet as the human population increases, Burgess said, shark sightings have risen because more people are in the ocean and engaged in water sports, such as surfing and sailing. Those sports, he said, put people in more danger by putting them closer to sharks. But shark populations are beginning to recover slowly. Its not going to happen in my lifetime and thats just the reality, Macdonald said of sharks making any measurable recovery in coming decades. But if I die feeling like I contributed to making sure there will be sharks in the ocean 100 years for now, thats fine by me. Indeed, while no sharks were tagged on her student outing, Macdonald said she hopes the teens were encouraged to get involved in science even if they dont pursue careers as scientists. At the end of the day our goal is to provide role models and mentorships to students, Macdonald said. Even without sharks, we more or less accomplished that goal.No tags on this dayFrom Shark,1B TACOS TIME TO GOTaco,a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle that was rescued in Snake Creek in Islamorada on May 5,is set for release at 9:30 a.m.Friday on the beach at Cheeca Lodge,mile marker 82 oceanside.Taco,found by Kimberly Spiegel struggling to the waters surface,was treated at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon for an intestinal infection.A healthy diet of squid and fish,antibiotics,beano,vitamins and rest put Taco on the road to recovery.
