Story 2A Keys parcels may be auctionedThe Florida Department of Environmental Protection has released a list of 67 state properties that might wind up on the auction block.At least 18 of the parcels are located in the Florida Keys.The effort, according to EPAofficials, is to raise $50 million for future land conservation. Florida Audubon has already weighed into the fray, raising questions about the program and signaling they will object strongly if any of the parcels on the final auction list have significant conservation value. According to the EPA, all state-owned land is being scored on its conservation value. The state Acquisition and Restoration Council, a group that makes recommendations about land issues, will meet Sept. 12-13. At those meetings, scores for all state holdings will be reviewed with the goal of setting a final list by the end of the year.Before any conservation land is sold, state agencies, universities and colleges will have the first shot at leasing the land. Next in line, cities and counties could tender purchase offers at the appraised values, before parcels are put out to public bid.Finding sources to fund Floridas conservation efforts have become a political football as state lawmakers kept tapping conservation funds to offset budget cuts elsewhere.Since2009, Florida legislators have cut funding for the statesFlorida Forever program by97.5 percent, to $23 million forland management and ecological restoration, including the Everglades.

The district is exploring whether infrared cameras on the unmanned autonomous vehicles could be used to spot shallow pools of water for treatment to control salt marsh mosquitoes. North Carolina-based Condor Aerial, the manufacturer, faced a bevy of district staff plus a media scrum that included a TVnews team from Miami and a German film crew. Heavy rains and rocky terrain at the original launch site Monday delayed the flight, which eventually took place at the Knights Key Campground near mile marker 47. It was put on by North Carolinabased Condor Aerial. The drone flew from Knights Key over the top of Boot Key just offshore of Marathon for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Operators used a laptop to set up the drones flight path and it could be easily followed on the monitor when out of sight. There was also a smaller monitor showing video the drone was capturing in the air. When the flight ended, the drone came down within a few feet of its expected landing spot.

Rick Scott convened an education summit Monday that brought together political, business and education leaders. The summit, expected to end this (Wednesday) afternoon, comes after the resignation of former Education Commissioner Tony Bennett and as debates swirl about the states school-grading system and a move to Common Core standards.Floridas education accountability system has become a national model, but we are at a critical point in our history, Scott said in announcing the summit last week. Our students need and deserve a quality education that emphasizes critical thinking and analysis. Our teachers and schools need our support as we continue to compete nationally and globally in preparing students for success in college, career and in life.Scott asked interim Education Commissioner Pam Stewart to focus the summit on four broad issues state standards, student assessments, school grades and teacher evaluations. Those issues have repeatedly drawn controversy during the past 15 years, as Republican governors and lawmakers have sought to overhaul Floridas education system. Bennett resigned Aug. 1 because of questions about whether he took part in changing a school grade to benefit a political supporter during his previous post as elected head of Indianas education system. Even before Bennett resigned, however, the Florida system was grappling with tough issues. Among other things, the state Board of Education in July voted 43 to approve a plan that shielded schools from steep drops in their grades a move that led some critics to raise doubts about the validity of the closely watched schoolgrading system. Joanne McCall, vice president of the Florida Education Association, spoke about teacher concerns during Mondays opening session.

Man charged in boat burglariesAHialeah man was arrested last Friday, charged with burglarizing two boats parked roadside in the Upper Keys.The first boat was located near mile marker 80 in May of 2012. The owner told Deputy David Stark he was towing the boat and his truck broke down. He had to leave the vessel and trailer parked there until he could get the vehicle repaired. When he returned, he found someone had taken the GPS and four sets of rods and reels. Fingerprints from the case were identified as belonging to Jesus Pereda Feros, 29, of Hialeah. Awarrant was issued for his arrest for burglary of a vessel and grand theft. The second boat was left parked for sale at mile marker 101.5. On Aug. 22, the owners mother, brother and sister were driving by and saw a man on board the boat. They stopped and confronted him, according to police. Feros works for a delivery company called South Florida Express. He was apprehended Friday as he was about to make a delivery in Key Largo. George M.

Im impressed with its physical abilities to fly and the next step is what it can see on the ground, he said. The idea would be for the drones to locate potential larvae breeding grounds on offshore islands up and down the Keys. The pools are fertile breeding grounds for nuisance salt marsh mosquitoes.And, Doyle hopes, the drones can cover more ground faster than inspectors can on their own. Hidden pools could then be treated faster, reducing the need for spraying adulticide after the larvae hatch. Time is the issue; if its takes longer to do this than it does to send some people out dipping then its not really worth it, Doyle said. Condor Chief Executive Officer Fred Culbertson told the Keynoter that he and the district would be conducting test flights from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. Tuesday. Monday was only a short demo for the media. Tomorrow will be the true challenge; were going to collect all the data, he said, adding that Mosquito Control plans to make the results available to the public. Culbertson also said setup time in the field is usually 10 minutes. The 2.2-pound, roughly 2.5-foot-long device would cost the district $80,000. The drone, powered by lithium polymer batteries, is capable of up to 90 minutes of flight at one time and can fly in up to 35 mph winds, Condor officials said.Test flights are next stepFrom Drones,1Ato the states system of assessing teachers.

Calls to Salvation Army headquarters in Tampa and to Salvation Army captains Max and Elizabeth Perez who also run the Key Largo store were not returned by deadline, but the store is scheduled to close on Oct. 22. Mike Puto, who chairs the seven-member Salvation Army advisory board in Marathon, told the Keynoter the decision to close was a financial one and that it was made by Salvation Army officials in Tampa. Their biggest beef was were not making enough money, he said. This is emotional for me, because [former Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce Director] Ray Kitchener and I brought the store here 18 years ago. According to Puto, Dallas, Texas-based Loma Alta Corp. declined to renew the stores lease because it wanted to sell the building. It was recently purchased by Community Health of South Florida Inc., which has long occupied the space adjacent to Salvation Army. Community Health, or CHI, provides low-cost primary and behavioral health care throughout the U.S. It operates numerous health centers, school-based clinics and outreach programs in South Florida. Puto said that while the thrift store closing would be sad, hes even more concerned with the social services aspect of the businesses being unavailable to Middle Keys residents in need. If you had a fire or a disaster with your house we can provide clothing or other things. Its like what the Red Cross or United Way does, he said. Were going to keep fighting, but right now it doesnt look good.Community Health spokeswoman Tiffani Helberg told the Keynoter the company plans to expand its operation into the roughly 3,000-squarefoot Salvation Army space. Currently, we dont have enough space for our dental and pharmacy operations; plus we recently added another pediatrician and well need to add more exam rooms, she said. CHI clinic expansion planned By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPorter defends his choiceMonroe County School District Superintendent Mark Porter is taking criticism for his choice of James Drake to transition from interim to fulltime director of finance and performance. Porter put his recommendation to the School Board in a meeting at Coral Shores High School after press time on Tuesday. Ed Davidson, the District 3 board member, called the selection process surrounding Porters pick of Drake a sham and a charade. Davidson said he wants to give Drake a 90-day extension and this time insist that the superintendent do a legitimate search. Drake came to Monroe County in April to replace the ousted former Finance Director Ken Gentile.In a 3-2 vote with Davidson and board Chairman Andy Griffiths dissenting, Drakes interim contract from April 15 to Aug. 31 was approved for an amount totaling $47,040.At that time, the board focused its comments on Drakes former post as assistant superintendent of business services in Manatee County where his departure was marked by reports of a $3.4 million budget shortfall. Drakes full-time contract is valid from Sept. 3 until June 30 and worth $91,004. Thats $138,044 for a year and two weeks of work. In addition to his Manatee County experience, Drake worked for 22 years in the Florida Auditor Generals Office specializing in school district audits. Davidson said the timing of the selection discounted quality candidates because school districts make administrative hires in June or July before the August start of the school year.Most people already had other jobs, Davidson said. Like all other personnel decisions, we waited until the last minute. This is a pattern and the problem is with Porter and his hiring practices.Based on records provided by Human Resources Director Ramon Dawkins, Drake beat out three other candidates:Kenneth Blocker, the assistant superintendent of business and support services for the Citrus County School District based in Inverness, Fla.Stuart Kessler, a member of the districts Audit and Finance Committee and applicant for a number of district administrative positions and unsuccessful candidate for Monroe County Clerk of the Court.James Newmeyer, most recently the president of Coral Gables, Fla.-based Newmeyer Mortgage Services Inc.Porter told the Keynoter in the run-up to the Tuesday meeting, Obviously I do not agree with the characterization of our hiring/selection process as a sham and a charade.I have asked Dr. Dawkins to prepare a summary of the timeline and process used in the selection and recommendation of Mr. Drake. Mr. Drake is well qualified for this position and I am pleased to be able to recommend him to the School Board.Davidson calls process a sham due to timingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS DRAKERainbowbridge idea draws supportThe long-discussed concept of bridging Admirals Cut in Key West linking the Truman Waterfront and Westin Marina area was brought into focus again last week, this time by a 10-year-old girl.Adelle Brasky-Moore presented the Key West City Commission with her proposal for an 85-foot arched rainbow pride bridgeconnecting the public park with the privately-owned waterfront parcel next to Mallory Square.She envisioned an arched bridge sporting rainbow colors and projected to cost $132,000, $50,000 of which she said could be raised by selling name inscriptions, 5,500 at $100 apiece.Commenting on Key Wests tourism, historic architecture and tropical climate, Brasky-Moore, whose parents are gay, said the primary thrust of her concept is to celebrate equality for everyone.Key West welcomes many different people, she told the commission Aug. 20 at Old City Hall on Greene Street. It has equality for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. The bridge will celebrate diversity with the many colors of the gay pride flag.Bridging Admirals Cut, a small section of waterfront used now for jet ski and boat storage, is a component of the Truman Waterfront master development plan, which once realized would transform the former U.S. Navy property into a $30 millionplus destination park. The expanse is owned by the Walsh family, developers of Sunset Key and the Westin among other hotel properties, and previous discussions with the city have never gained much traction. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, who sponsored the presentation, said perhaps Brasky-Moore could help change that.We still havent negotiated an agreement with the Walshes. But we ought to keep this in mind as we move this process forward. Maybe Adelle can come back and make this presentation for them.He thanked her for coming up with a wonderful project and stressed the importance of this bridge to the community. Andy Hayes of Hayes Cumming Architects, who was on hand to present a separate item to commissioners, offered to donate any design fees if the city were to move forward on Brasky-Moores proposal.85-foot span link to Truman Waterfront By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYAn arched bridge over the Westin Marina property at Admirals Cut would create a pedestrian path from Mallory Square to the Truman Waterfront.
for raiding conservation funds, lamenting those cuts reversed 40 years of Floridas progress in water and land conservation. Agroup calling itself Floridas Water and Land Legacy Campaign has been gathering signatures to put a constitutional amendment on the November 2014 ballot that would set aside 33 percent of documentary tax stamp revenues for the next 20 years.That would raise an estimated $10 billion over that period earmarked for land and water purchases, money the Legislature couldnt divert for other purposes.This will be the most significant vote in Florida for our environment in our lifetimes, said Will Abberger, the campaigns chair and the director of conservation finance for the Trust for Public Land in a statement. We are launching a grassroots effort to let the people decide if clean water and natural land are a legacy we want to leave for our children and grandchildren and generations to come.In April, that group passed the 10 percent threshold required to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot. Now the legal language of the proposed amendment goes to Floridas Supreme Court for review. Florida News Service and Tampa Bay Times contributed information for this article.

Enrollment drops 6 percentThe fall semester is off and running at Florida Keys Community College complete with a nearly full house in the colleges Stock Island campus dormitory, although enrollment numbers continue a downward trajectory. College spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said that as of Monday there were 329.3 full-time equivalent students on a headcount of 1,078 students taking classes. That full-time count is down 6.6 percent, about 22 students, from the fall semester last year.Ernst-Leonard cautioned, There is still going to be some fluctuation, because Monday was the last day for students to drop or add classes.The decrease she said is comparable to trends around the state. We are a little bit behind our projection for this semester, college President Jonathan Gueverra said, but thats not a major concern because we have a number of things that have not already factored into that. Could we be doing better? Absolutely. Im always going to be asking what we can do better. The colleges Lagoon Landing dormitory, which has suffered from fluctuating occupancy creating revenue shortfalls, has 98 out of 100 beds full. Since the dorm opened in 2011, the trend has been strong occupancy for fall followed by a significant decrease in the spring and summer semesters. Students pay on a semester-by-semester basis with each terms dorm rental costing $4,010. Last year, Fall was full but during spring we experience attrition, ErnstLeonard said of dorm occupancy trends.Students might find other housing options or may get homesick. And recruiting new students is hard in the spring.Gueverra said a comprehensive early alert program would help combat that attrition. We can focus on these students a little bit more because they are full time and for some of them its your typical first-year blues. The early alert program would include review of student grades and also attendance and information from faculty on performance so we can reach out to them a whole lot earlier, Gueverra said.In July, FKCC announced a partnership with the San Carlos Institute on Duval Street in Key West designed to offer a variety of classes in Old Town while hopefully boosting enrollment. Ernst-Leonard said of the five planned classes only one, introduction to business, had enough students enroll to be put on the schedule.In June, FKCC was placed on warning status by the regional entity that accredits colleges and universities, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The heart of the warning is a March Florida Auditor Generals Office report that cites FKCC for a complicated financial maneuver involving use of restricted money to pay expenses incurred by the direct-support organization that runs the dorm.But dorm is full for the Fall semesterBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCOMMUNITY COLLEGE Photo courtesy of FKCCStudents move into the Lagoon Landing dormitory on Florida Keys Community Colleges Stock Island campus; the 100-bed facility opened in August 2011.Seagrass restoration plan gets Keys airingAplan to simplify and speed restoration of damaged seagrass beds in the protected wilderness of Florida Bay will be outlined by Everglades National Park staff at a Sept. 16 session in Islamorada. The parks draft version of its Seagrass Habitat Restoration Management Plan proposes an assessment and process that applies to most seagrass-repair efforts, which would save time seeking permits and approval. One of the challenges in the park is that when we implement projects, we have to be sure to follow all the laws and policies, park planner Fred Herling said.Rather than file extensive reports on restorations on a project by project basis, Herling said, the plan would apply to most replantings in the parks waters of Florida Bay.Its an overall analysis of a problem, which is the need to restore damaged seagrass, he said. Its not just one project on a blowhole or prop scar. The impacts and solutions can be applied on a much wider scale.Everglades Superintendent Dan Kimball said in a statement, The goal of the plan is to provide a concise and easily applied process for evaluating seagrass damage, determining the appropriate restoration action, implementing restoration projects, and evaluating the success of resource recovery. The draft plan, released Aug. 20, will be open to public comment through Oct. 4. It can be found on Everglades National Parks website: www.nps.gov/ever People can comment in person at the 6-8 p.m. Sept. 16 meeting, scheduled at the Community Building in Islamoradas Founders Park. Each year, thousands of boats visit Florida Bay, a submerged wilderness area which supports extensive areas of seagrass habitat, says a project description. The shallow nature of the bay makes it vulnerable to vessel groundings and propeller scarring damage, which has been occurring with increased regularity... Nature heals some bottom scarring but large individual injuries or areas with extensive repeated and cumulative injuries could take decades without management action, the report states. The primary threat to Florida Bays seagrasses remains manmade changes to South Floridas ecosystem and water flow, the report notes. But recreational boat use has also contributed to benthic resource damage.Studies in 2011 and 1995 of seagrass in 31 Florida coastal counties show Monroe County had the most seagrass and the most moderate and severe scarring in comparison to all other counties within the study area.Restoration efforts include transplanting limited amounts of seagrass from healthy areas. Listed as the four priority seagrass restoration areas in Florida Bay were Porjoe Key, Duck Key, the Tern Keys, and the Buchanan Keys.Sept.16 session at Founders Park open to publicENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comReport: Jail facilities need replacementCounty jails in Marathon and Plantation Key both need to be replaced within a few years, says a facilities report delivered to the Monroe County Commission. Jail facilities in Plantation Key and Marathon are at their useful end, concludes the overall assessment of buildings and offices owned or leased for Monroe County government offices.Consultants with MBI/ K2M Architecture told commissioners last week that jail buildings in the Middle and Upper Keys are classified as temporarystructures that have been turned into longterm solutions...[Both] are in dilapidated conditions and should be replaced. County Commissioner Danny Kolhage, who has been critical of the countys capital-improvement plan, seized on the issue during discussion of the report Aug. 21 in Key Largo. Kolhage asked the consultants to confirm that two jail facilities intended to be temporary are both critical condition. Aaron Baggerly, one of the reports authors, replied, Some structural supports underneath are in horrendous shape and could collapse at any time. The Marathon jail has 57 beds, and Plantation Key has 46. Most of the countys inmates are held at the Stock Island Detention Center, which can house up to 597 people. Replacing the smaller jails could cost about $5 million each, according to the report. However, both the courthouses in Marathon and Plantation Key also are listed as priorities to be replaced. In Marathon, a new storm-hardened facility to house an emergency-operations center and the 911 communications center is needed at a cost of $12 million to $14 million, consultants said. The 305-page report commissioned in December looked at current county offices and buildings to determine comprehensive needs and possible changes through the year 2037. Many departments and offices are operating in overcrowded conditions and there is no additional space in existing locations for future service and staff growth, says the report. Anew sheriffs substation on Cudjoe Key and a new Marathon library were listed as other needed improvements.County building changes over the next 25 years could cost from $69 million to $92 million, depending on whether buildings are rebuilt or refurbished, the report estimates.County Commissioner Heather Carruthers said the countys draft capital-improvement plan may have been written differently if the facilities report had been available.This is a final report, but there is never a final report, said Public Works Director Kevin Wilson. Any capitalimprovement plan is a snapshot in time. Unforeseen changes in needs or costs would affect the priority rankings, Wilson said. If a project exceeds estimates, he said, something else at a lower level has to be pushed out.Marathon and Plantation Key jails criticalMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgBealls could be expanding in MarathonBealls Outlet could be making a short move to a much larger space this fall. Local Realtor Brian Schmitt says hes negotiating with the department and outlet store chain to take over the 23,000-square-foot space in Marathon Shores being vacated by Office Depot this fall. Office Depot has been a tenant at the shopping center at 107th Street and U.S. 1 since 1998, but is downsizing to a roughly 7,000-squarefoot space on the other side of town.Nothing is finalized, but it very well may be Bealls moving in there and doing a much bigger store, and probably Dollar Tree moving into where Bealls is, Schmitt said. Bealls is currently located a few doors down from Office Depot in the shopping center owned by Schmitts local Coldwell Banker franchise. Most of their stores are bigger, he said. They have full-size department stores. Schmitt said he couldnt comment until leases are finalized, but said that both would likely be long-term. He recently leased the U.S 1 and 53rd Street location to Walgreens for 25 years. Meanwhile, Office Depot is close to moving into another Schmitt-owned space in the U.S. Post Office shopping center adjacent to Walgreens on U.S. 1. I think theyre supposed to be out of [their current] space by the end of November. Theyre probably going to be open [at the new location] before that, Schmitt said. American Caribbean Real Estate most recently occupied Office Depots new space and before that it was a furniture store.CVS talks ongoingSchmitt declined to offer up details, but did say he continues to talk with representatives from another pharmacy giant, CVS, about a move from its Winn-Dixie shopping center digs near mile marker 50. Schmitt owns a vacant U.S. 1 lot between the Hurricane bar and restaurant and former Crystal Cove Resort that the company has long shown interest in. Its located near mile marker 49.5. CVS has also had preapplication meetings with the city of Marathon that included architects and real estate people. The lot is about 2.5 acres and has been vacant for the 15 years Schmitt has owned it. He said CVS pulled the plug on a site plan there around five years ago.

Why should they be term limited if they want to continue and they can muster the necessary votes? Is this an aspersion or indictment on character? Heck, no. I know most of them personally and would vouch for their characters. Then why? Thomas Jefferson wrote, If some termination to the services of the chief magistrate be not fixed by the Constitution or supplied by practice, his office ... will in fact become for life. Did he view George Washingtons decision not to seek a third term as enlightened? Were Madisons and Monroes adherence to the two-term principle further evidence that the founders viewed term limits as a seawall against a monarchy? We dont know for sure, but we do know that term limits ensure that people are not tempted by the opportunity to consolidate power and it encourages elected officials rather than emperors. Up until the time of Franklin Roosevelts unprecedented third and fourth terms, largely attributed to World War II, others had tried and were turned away. The list includes such well-known and highly regarded presidents as Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. The American people had decided, on their own, to put the two-term limit into place and then amended the constitution after FDRs reign to institutionalize the practice. Today, 36 states, including Florida, have gubernatorial term limits. Florida also has term limits for it legislative branch. And, yes, term limits for Congress are overdue. Position begets power, power begets money, and power and money too often beget abuse and corruption. We need to protect ourselves against a permanent political class at all levels of government.If all politics is local and change begins at the grassroots level, let us start in our own back yard and support term limits for the Mosquito Control Board.Jim Pettorini Key Colony Beach Editors note: The Mosquito Control Board voted 3-2 on Aug. 19 to not impose term limits.Coaches score gratitudeThe Marathon Parks and Recreation Department would like to extend a huge thank you to the coaches and junior coaches who made the summer soccer program possible this summer for our youth. The following individuals were recognized at the August awards banquet for their efforts: Hurricanes coaches Robert Petrick, Arjen Holdinga, Michael Companioni and Darian Companioni; Jets coaches John Gonzales, Karl Bursa and Dyris Companioni; Sharks coaches U.B. Eubank, Marc Maison, Luke Hoffman and Raven Banks; Vipers coaches Kelley Struyf and Jonathan Cruz; Hawks coaches Ted Violissi, Teddy Violissi and Andrew Perry; and Barcelona coaches Kathrine Mayan, Odalys Mayan and Marcus Qualls. The Marathon Parks and Recreation Department had a great program with more than 60 youths between the ages of 4 and 9 and it was a huge success in part to the fabulous coaching staff we had. We also want to thank the parents who made a commitment to bring their children on practice and game days. We had fun despite the heat. Ali Adams MarathonClean up Bahia HondaWhen you first enter Bahia Honda State Park in the Lower Keys, you see a sign that says it was voted the most beautiful park in 2002. I have been going to Bahia Honda since I moved here in 2002. In my opinion, the park might be voted the most unkempt park today.In 2002, I believe admission for two people was only $4.50. Today it is $9 for two people. I know of no other park that charges such high fees. My main complaint is the lack of seagrass management. While I fully understand the ecological value of seagrass, I cant find white sand to put my chairs on. The seagrass is everywhere. Would it be so horrible to do what the other beaches do? They have tractors rake the seagrass and pile it up by the jetties. That brings me to the question of the high admission fees. What is the budget and what is all this money being spent on? Perhaps a committee of taxpayers and staff should be formed to address these questions and recommend improvements to this valuable resource. I, for one, would welcome the opportunity to work on such a committee. Sally Diller MarathonGUEST COLUMNIts 5 a.m. and Lt. Eric Hall is driving around the wooded grounds of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission training center at the Florida Public Safety Institute just outside of Tallahassee. Hes checking to make sure the running trail is in good condition. As he approaches the flagpole in front of his office, he sees the group of FWC recruits lined up in formation. Though the sun has yet to rise, its already steamy and their matching gray T-shirts stick to their backs. He parks his truck and gets out, calls Right face and takes off at a trot. The recruits fall in behind the ex-Navy SEALfor their morning run, the sound of their shoes and their musical cadence calls the only sounds echoing through the quiet campus. After the four-mile jaunt, they quickly shower and head to the chow hall for breakfast. The rest of the day is spent in the classroom going over boating laws and boat maintenance, but later in the week they will board a bus and head to the coast for some handson practice behind the wheel of one of their many vessels. Since FWC officers are responsible for patrolling all of Floridas woods, including public and private lands, as well as its waters, they must be well versed on a wide variety of information. Protecting our valuable natural resources calls for a broad knowledge of Floridas fish and wildlife and a mastery of a variety of technical skills both physical and mental. Also, due to their jurisdiction and specialized equipment, FWC officers are often the first to be able to respond to boating accidents, missing boaters and lost campers, hikers and hunters. Each year, they save around 1,000 people during search-and-rescue missions. To prepare for all of that, after obtaining their law enforcement certification in Florida through a 19-week basic law enforcement curriculum, FWC officers have an additional seven weeks of specific training conducted by staff. For officers who have already received their law enforcement credentials elsewhere, the FWC periodically conducts academies consisting only of the FWCspecific portion. They train with their firearms, logging many hours on the range both day and night; meet some fish and wildlife species face to face, including alligators and snakes, and learn how to handle them. They practice loading and unloading boats with a trailer and operating boats in many different weather conditions. Training includes learning safe and efficient tactics for operating allterrain vehicles and practicing with them in the woods of the academy campus. They also don protective gear and engage in specialized defensive tactic training drills to keep themselves and others safe. They practice detecting when people are boating and driving under the influence and learn how to follow a track left by someone in the woods. Additionally, the classroom time includes a focus on state and federal wildlife, fisheries and environmental laws and learning fish and wildlife identification. If that seems like a lot, it is. FWC officers are some of the most highly trained law enforcement professionals in the country. During their time at the academy, they eat, sleep, work out and study onsite, soaking up as much information as they can from staff and bonding with fellow recruits. To make it through this rigorous training and become an FWC officer, it takes a highly motivated, hard-working individual who is passionate about protecting Floridas outdoor paradise and the people in it. Before being selected to attend the academy, applicants complete a state of Florida application and supplemental FWC application, attend a physical fitness assessment session, must pass a background check and psychological evaluation and complete an interview. It takes a special kind of person to be a law enforcement officer, and it takes a special kind of law enforcement officer to be an FWC officer. Think you have what it takes? The FWC is always looking for enthusiastic new members, especially in South Florida, where high population rates make for some increased enforcement challenges. There are recruiters across the state to help you through the process. To learn more, visit www.myfc.com/Get-Involved and click on Law Enforcement Officer. Katie Purcell is community relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement.Water managers on board, but federal and state partners must meet their commitments Some thorny issues and financial hurdles remain to be worked out, but, in a heartening move, a plan to clean up and redirect Lake Okeechobee spillover southward into the Everglades got a real boost this month from the South Florida Water Management District. The board approved the ambitious, complex project on Aug. 15, giving supporters hope that it can meet a crucial deadline to present the joint state-federal plan to Congress this year for funding. The $1.8 billion Central Everglades proposal has the water management district and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers splitting the costs. Expensive? Yes. But also necessary if two vital estuaries the St. Lucie River on the East Coast and the Caloosahatchee River on the West Coast are to be saved, and parched portions of the Everglades are ever to be slaked.The summer rains have come in record amounts this season. That means the Corps must release water from the lake to keep it from flooding during hurricanes and from breaching the rickety Herbert Hoover Dike.But rather than send the water south in a historic flow into the Everglades, the Corps must divert the water east and west into the two river systems. Why? Because the lakes water is so badly polluted by runoff from agriculture and urban sprawl.This torrent of dirty water kills shellfish beds and sea grass nurseries off both coasts. This year, it has dirtied the St. Lucie to the point that residents are warned to stay out of the water, period. The Central Everglades plan would make such intrusions less likely. The plan would also clean up the phosphorous-laden water before sending it southward.Its a good plan that should be put to work as soon as realistically possible. But first, some kinks must be worked out, along with the assurance of adequate funding. The water management district worries that it might violate federal clean-water standards if the lake flow isnt adequately cleansed and wants federal assurance that it will cooperate with the state rather than punish it if that happens. But, in turn, the district must make every effort to ensure that the water can be cleaned up well enough to justify sending it into the Glades. The district also wants rightly guarantees that the feds will keep their part of the fund-matching bargain. The state has already spent $2 billion on Everglades restoration and another $880 million on the Everglades water-cleanup plan. While the state was spending all that money in the 2000s, federal support stalled. Commendably, President Obama reopened the money pipeline in his first term. The Everglades is a unique ecosystem badly damaged and infringed upon by generations of Floridians, and the Corps, too. So using public money to repair as much man-made damage as possible to restore the Everglades is in all our interests. The water management district and federal authorities must do everything possible to make the Central Everglades plan a reality this year.

BusinessCollege cost increases top listDespite all the grumbling about tuition increases and student loan costs, other college expenses also are going up. The price of housing and food trumps tuition costs for students who attend twoand four-year public universities in their home states, according to a College Board survey. Even with the lower interest rates on student loans that President Barack Obama signed into law, students are eyeing bills that are growing on just about every line. Alook at typical college studentsbudgets last year and how theyre changing:Community collegesThe public two-year schools charged in-state students an average $3,131 last year, up almost 6 percent from the previous year. While the tuition hike was larger than at other types of schools, students at community colleges saw the smallest increase in room and board costs a 1 percent increase to $7,419. Total charges for students to attend an in-state public two-year school: $10,550. Florida Keys Community College puts that figure at $16,088 for a full-time student paying in-state tuition and living at home with parents. FKCC did not raise its tuition fees for 2013-14, which cost $109 per credit hour for in-state students. A 12-hour course load is considered full-time, so tuition costs $1,308 per semester. Out-of-state students attending FKCC pay $448 per credit hour, so a full 12hour course load would cost $5,256 per semester. Tuition and fees at community colleges nationwide are up 24 percent beyond overall inflation over the past five years, according to the College Board.Four-year collegesTuition for students attending public four-year schools in their state was an average $8,655 last year, a 5 percent jump from the previous year. They paid more than that $9,205 for housing and food. These schools, like other four-year schools, posted a 4 percent jump in housing costs. For students who choose to attend state schools outside their home state, the costs increase to $30,911. The typical student who crossed state lines to attend a public college in 2012 paid $21,706 in tuition and fees after grants and scholarships a 4 percent jump from the previous year. Over the past five years, the tuition sticker price at public four-year colleges is up 27 percent beyond overall inflation. The tuition at private schools was up 13 percent beyond overall inflation over the past five years adjusted for inflation.Survey found 6 percent hike across the boardBy PHILIP ELLIOTTAssociated PressEDUCATIONChamberhosts town hall meetingThe Key West Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Town Hall meeting, open to the public, on the ship channel widening issue.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,August 28,2013 An Open Letterto the Residents of MarathonThe residents, taxpayers and concerned citizens of Marathon should be aware that numerous incidents in our community over the past few years have taken place where personal agendas trump community needs, and where the community is being made to suffer when they might otherwise benefit. Many of these incidents, whether it be the blocking of liquor licenses, almost causing the closing of long-standing Marathon businesses, or getting in the way of property sales to re-open a competing business, have been reported on in this newspaper over the past few years. You know those incidents have occurred yet nothing has been done! But the most disturbing circumstance was also the most recent; The DAC III Board of the TDC has voted 5 to 3 to eliminate 40% of the marketing funding for our communitys keystone event, the Annual Marathon Seafood Festival. This event brings thousands of out of county visitors to our community, visitors that greatly help our local businesses! At the same time, the DAC III was cutting $20,000 from the Seafood Festivals budget, they were SENDING $30,000 of Marathons money to KEYWESTto market Fantasy Fest. If this isnt a gross misappropriation of funds, I dont know what is! The DAC III Board members who took our earned tax dollars away from the Marathon Seafood Festival are: Ralph Lucignano, Vicki Tashijan, George Shattuck, Wendy Hall and William Ehrhorn. Its time for the people of Marathon to wake up, demand explanations, and ask for accountability, if not resignations! Our community has lost sales tax revenue, jobs growth, real estate tax income and a stronger local economy as a result of these clandestine operations. Isnt it time to take back control of what is right for our community. Paid advertising Paid for by Bruce Schmitt Resident, Taxpayer and voter email@example.com

After battling to overcome first-game errors and turnovers, the Hurricanes made the most of their last drive, scoring with 27 seconds left on a 36-yard drive, capped by Logan Rowes 2yard run. But the Canes still trailed, 28-27, in favor of visiting Community School of Naples, a pass-happy Class 2Asquad. With no overtime in the exhibition game, Coral Shores coach Ed Holly kept the offense on the field for a two-point conversion try. We didnt want to end in a tie, said the third-year head coach. Putting different guys out there in critical situations is what we want from the preseason game.The Canes ran the same play that scored the touchdown, but the ball came loose. The Seahawks recovered and headed back to Naples with the narrowest of wins. Were a young team that needs that kind of experience, Holly said. We did some good things. We also did some poor things, and now we get to work on those. Community School arrived with an established passing attack headed by senior quarterback Drew Tomiani, who threw for 2,700 yards in 2012, tops in state Class 2A.Tomiani unofficially went 20-for-40 for 299 yards at Coral Shores. One pass was intercepted by the CanesBrian Cash. With a bunch of seniors in skill positions, we knew they would test our pass defense, Holly said. They certainly did. In order for us to be successful this season, we need that kind of test. The Hurricane defense recorded a handful of sacks, with defensive ends Austin Wilkins and Anthony Rice each getting solo sacks. Jose Bravo and Rowe started at defensive tackle. Eddie Dunn, Henry Jacobsen, George Jacobsen, Bryan Peixoto, Ariel Correa and Brian Gonzalez worked in at linebacker.Junior Paul Pauchey returned to the defensive backfield with mates Darran Govan, Juan Mayo and Cash.Offensively, Coral Shores primarily relied on the run, although sophomore quarterback Nick Frisone found the 6-foot-5 Rice at tight end with passes down the middle for 24 and 27 yards. Govan reeled in a 15-yard pass.But lightning bolts on the ground from outside speed stunned Naples. George Jacobsen escaped for an 80yard touchdown sprint midway through the second quarter to give the Hurricanes a 14-7 lead at halftime. George Jacobsen also had runs of 21 and 31 yards to end with more than 150. Shaka Smith, a freshman transfer from Island Christian, ripped off a 46yard run from scrimmage. In the second half, Smith sprinted away from the Seahawks on a 96-yard score on a kickoff return. The offensive line, with sophomores David Williams and Andy Bautista ably stepping in alongside veterans Jake Niedbalski, Benny Cosme and Sam Acker, opened holes for the hardcharging Eddie Dunn, a third-year workhorse. But the offense was slowed by two lost fumbles and two interceptions, and two lackluster drives coming out of halftime. We have to learn not to turn the ball over, Holly said. Coral Shoresfirst touchdown came when Bautista and George Jacobsen recovered a loose ball in the Naples end zone after a 65yard Hurricane drive. The Canesrecord still stands at 0-0 after the exhibition loss to Community School.At 7:30 p.m. Friday, the Canes stay home at George M. Barley Jr. to take on Archbishop Carroll in the first game that goes on the record. The regular-season opener is Coral Shoresonly game that is not against a South Florida Conference opponent.

Look for weed lines, floating debris and birds working the surface. There have been a lot of frigate birds close to the water lately. This generally indicates large dolphin fish over 20 pounds feeding under them. Try to get your baits out in front of the general direction the frigate bird is heading and you should be into some quality fish.Be sure to have some live baits ready as the dolphin have been a bit finicky when it comes to taking trolled and chunk baits. There are also good numbers of wahoo under the floating debris and weed lines. And, plenty of blackfin and skipjack tuna are interspersed among the schools of dolphin. The snapper bite remains excellent on the reef and wrecks.In the 40to 60-foot depths, youll find an abundance of mangroves and good size yellowtails, the largest of the tails are most consistently in 70to 90-foot.Mutton snapper fishing on the wrecks remains relatively strong, with most fish in the 10to 15-pound category. And, there are loads of amberjack and jack crevalle, which always make good sport on light tackle. The patch reefs are still holding mangroves and keeper size yellowtails in addition to the occasional keeper-size red grouper. In the bay and around the bridges, the mangrove snapper bite is increasing in tempo. When the winds come up Oceanside, head to the shallow wrecks and banks in Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico to put dinner in the box.The weeks bestCapt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-Em-All Charters out of Captain Pips Marina in Marathon, reports nice dolphin in 650 feet of water with his client, Chuck Shumate from Salt Lake City, catching a 22-pounder. And, there are 12to 15pound blackfin tuna in closer at 250 to 300 feet. Lots of frigate birds on the tuna. The crews on both of our boats, the SeaSquared and the Klimax split their week between snapper fishing on the reef and in the bay and shallow-water shark fishing. Our anglers caught mangrove up to four and five pounds and yellowtails between 14 and 16 inches. Brad Stoops, from Marietta Ga., and Jim Price, from St. Louis Mo., are two very happy fishermen after a great day on the water with Capt. Kevin and Barbie Wilson, of Knee Deep Charters out of Geiger Key Marina. They limited out on big yellowtails snapper and caught a nice black grouper. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, reports the tarpon bite has been great in front of Fort Zack, with big yellowtails and black groupers mixed in. Offshore on the color change, hes been finding schoolie dolphin, bonito and nice barracuda eating trolled ballyhoo.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.

This will be the Conchs first taste of real competition the annual preseason game was not played because of lack of an opponent. At first there was a sense of disappointment, but its not that big of a deal, coach Johnny Hughes said about not having a warm-up game Hughes, who was 6-4 as a rookie coach last season, said the Conchs looked sharp in most areas during the first three weeks of practice.Hughes expects outside running threats Deonte Stemage (800 yards last season) and Lawrence Marius to have big seasons, but he seems most excited about sophomore fullback Mehki Sargent.Hes a little tank, basically, Hughes said. And he has deceptive speed. Guiding the triple-option offense will be quarterback Andrew Freeman, who didnt play football in 2012. Hes come along nicely, Hughes said, adding that the 6-foot-3 junior should open up a passing game that barely existed a year ago. When it comes to defense, Hughes likes to talk about senior linebacker Jack Gruba. He is the defense, he said. Marius, the running back, is also one of two talented cornerbacks; junior Jeffery Anilus is the other one. Another defender to watch is Anthony Henriquez, a scrappy junior linebacker.The offensive line is experienced, but the defensive line is unsettled, Hughes said.As for kicking, Freeman will punt, although the Conchs often shun punting. The field goals and extra points will be handled by soccer player Gavin Mock, and another soccer player, Sam Graveline.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALL Hopes high for Conch golfersAs of late last week, the Key West High School golf team had yet to practice for the new season because of a wet course at the Key West Golf Club. Coach John Moeller, however, did not seem concerned. Well have a pretty strong team, he said. It would be great if we were district runners-up again. The Conchs went on to the regional meet last season, but went no farther because they finished sixth of eight teams.Evan DeRoche, considered one of the top young golfers in the state, is back for his senior year and is solidly entrenched as the teams No. 1. DeRoche, who made the state tournament as a freshman and sophomore, did not qualify for that meet in 2012, mainly because of two bogies at the regional event.He played in four major tournaments this summer, but they were so tough he was not in the top 10 at any of them, Moeller said. But he has that much more experience now. Expected to be No. 2 is veteran Elliot Arazi, followed by Scott Brown and No. 3 and Chase Renner, who came on strong late last season, at No. 4.And who will be No. 5? Moeller has no idea. The rest will be a pleasant surprise, he said, adding that junior Danny Ross and senior Caleb Hiller could step up.In addition to DeRoche, Arazi, Brown and Renner, nine other players (including two girls) have expressed interest in being on the team. Im more enthusiastic this season because I know what Im getting into, said Moeller, who was displeased last season because of a lack of discipline at times. The long-ago Ohio University wrestler will have none of that this season. He has each of his players sign a contract (which parents also have to sign) to ensure that team expectations and conduct are followed. I dont anticipate any problems, he said. The Conchs will open the season at 3 p.m. Sept. 4 with a home match against Ransom Everglades. Then on Sept. 6 and 7, powerhouse Gulliver Prep will be in Key West for two 18-hole matches. In addition to Ransom and Gulliver, Belen Jesuit, Columbus and La Salle are in District 16-2A.DeRoche again leads the team on the courseBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GOLF

Beach smoking ban gets attentionWhen Skip Beeler strolled the smoke-free beaches of California, he noticed the difference right away. The beaches seemed more pristine than the stretch of sand he was accustomed to on Floridas Atlantic Coast.They just looked so much better and so much cleaner, said Beeler, who served as mayor of Cocoa Beach and led an unsuccessful fight to ban smoking on the beach there. We had some areas where it looked like you were walking through sea shells, but it wasnt seashells. It was cigarette butts.In Volusia and Flagler counties, smoking bans are gaining momentum. Daytona International Speedway prohibited smoking in the grandstands, a milestone for a sport that once was closely tied to R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona State College and Stetson University have snuffed out tobacco on campus. Public health officials would like to extend those bans even further by prohibiting smoking on beaches and in parks. They point to mounds of cigarette butts littering the beaches and the dangers of secondhand smoke as reasons why lighting up shouldnt be allowed on Volusia and Flaglers shoreline.But even if the political will existed to enact such a ban, cities and counties are prohibited from restricting smoking outdoors. Only the state can make those changes. Counties and cities can post signs asking the public not to smoke, but state law leaves local officials powerless to enforce the rules.Teresa Williams, tobacco prevention specialist for the Flagler County Health Department, would like to see that change, and she suspects many others in the community would agree. We are starting to see a turn socially in smoking, she said. People are almost becoming closet smokers. Id like it turned over to our locals and let them make the decision for where we live. Abill filed in the Florida Legislature last session would have done just that, but it stalled. That put a stop to an effort in Flagler County to nix smoking outside county buildings. State Sen. Rob Bradey, who sponsored the bill, said he plans to introduce the legislation again next session, but doubts it will pass in the House, which was especially opposed to giving local governments the ability to snuff out beach smoking. The Fleming Island Republican said he introduced the bill because he was concerned about smoking around playgrounds in parks, and hed consider dropping beaches from the legislation if it strengthened its chances of passing. For Sally Wood, a Port Orange smoker, it doesnt make sense to ban smoking outdoors. She said she always throws away her cigarette butts and tries to stay away from nonsmokers. You are not close enough to anyone to be bothersome, she said between puffs.Wood questioned how a ban on smoking at the beach could affect tourism. Smoking rates are on the decline nationally, but about two out of every 10 adults in Volusia and Flagler light up, according to Florida Department of Health statistics.The tourism community doesnt view a smoking ban for beaches and parks as imminent, said Bob Davis, president and CEO of the Hotel and Lodging Association of Volusia County. If local governments could make the call, Davis said he would poll his membership and decide how to respond. Although Wood says she is careful not to litter, beach cleanup crews report cigarette butts are the most common type of trash found on the shore, said Sallie OHara, who coordinates litter pickup events for Friends of A1A. Weve got to address smoker behavior not to dispose of cigarette butts on the beach, she said. Its harmful to our environment and to human health. The butts, which are picked up by the bucketful during cleanup events, are eaten by migratory birds and other wildlife, OHara said. Other states especially California have embraced smoke-free beaches, according to a list compiled by the American Nonsmokers Rights Foundation. Many of the beaches cataloged in the Beach Boysclassic song SurfinU.S.A. no longer allow smoking, including Del Mar, Manhattan and Redondo beaches. In 2006, Beeler pushed for Cocoa Beach another community renowned for its surfing to become smoke free. The issue made it on the ballot, and the towns attorney thought hed found a way to get around the states restriction on local smoke bans. The issue sparked controversy, and a political action committee formed to fight the ban, Beeler said. Opponents accused the city of playing the role of nanny state and limiting the freedom of residents. When it went to a vote, the measure failed with 53 percent voting no to any ban. Beeler suspects that result might be different if the election were held today because of changes in public sentiment. Earlier this year, the courts struck down Sarasota Countys prohibition against smoking on beaches and in parks, along with a $100 fine for violating the ban. Going forward, local government not the state should be able to debate the issue, said Pat Northey, a longtime Volusia County councilwoman who said she would support a smoking ban for beaches.But state law prohibits local ordinance bansBy SKYLER SWISHERThe Daytona Beach News-JournalHEALTH Wednesday,August 28,2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com At Beautiful Rainbow Bend Resort Mile Marker 58, Grassy Key Reserva tions 289-1554 C C r r e e d d i i t t C C a a r r d d s s A A c c c c e e p p t t e e d d The only thing we overlook is the ocean.Open 7 days a w eek Dinner 4:30 10pm Br eakfast 7:30 10amCasual,Gourmet Oceanfront Dining LAttitudes review Feb. 1, 2002Filet Mignon butter tender andcooked to perfection Sunset DinnersNow onl y $15.95per person7 nights a week Island Vision Careis now accepting NEW patients.Dr.John Sheldon's optometry practice services all ages,from kids to seniors.Monday Friday 9AM to 5PM Saturday by appointment6400 Overseas Hwy.
