Murray is a former School Board-appointed member of the districts advisory Audit and Finance Committee and last year unsuccessfully ran for the District 3 board seat won by Ed Davidson. In the 14-page filing in Circuit Court, Murray, who represents himself in the proceeding, wrote: On several occasions in the recent past, the defendants have exhibited similar bad faith in the production of documents, and when the documents were finally revealed, the documents revealed malfeasance or misfeasance. It is believed and therefore averred that the failure to produce these readily available requested records is in bad faith and an effort by the defendants to prevent public review of the requested documents. He focuses on three specific requests made to Porter:An Aug. 15 request for a draft contract for forensic auditing services, which Murray alleges Porter has never acknowledged.An Aug. 16 request for the salary and salary supplements for Christina McPherson, the districts director of assessment and Poinciana Elementary School Principal.An Aug. 29 request for a comprehensive list of salary supplements for all district employees.

Asource familiar with the Keys hotel industry told the Keynoter on Tuesday that Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key near mile marker 61 could sell for a price in excess of $125 million. Hawks Cay Resort spokeswoman Holly LeeZawyer confirmed only that the resort is for sale. Resort officials declined to be interviewed for this story. According to the resorts website, it has a total of 402 two-and three-bedroom villas and hotel rooms, as well as five restaurants, the Calm Waters Spa, interactive Dolphin Connection facility, and a full-service marina featuring dive, snorkeling and sportfishing operations. Addisson, Texas-based Behringer Harvard, with Northview Hotel Group and Five Star Realty Partners LLC, acquired the resort in February 2007 for a reported $75 million.

Cinque originally told the Keynoter he felt a special meeting called for by Councilman Chris Bull last Tuesday was unnecessary, but he reversed course on Monday and directed city staff to schedule the public meeting. Its planned for Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.I set a meeting up for one specific purpose: Areport from [City Manager Roger Hernstadt] on the contract we have with Bill Horn. I think theres a lot of misinformation out there, Cinque said.City-hired architect Horn, working with other firms on city hall, wrote a letter to Hernstadt on Aug. 7 that outlines several concerns the city-hall design team has with a schedule to prepare design and construction documents for contractors to bid on the estimated $5.5 million job.Chief among Horns concerns is that the citys schedule would force contractors to bid on the project using largely preliminary design development documents as opposed to muchmore detailed and completeCinque cuts off dialogue when discussedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSee Marathon,3A

Bonnie Clydesdale told the Keynoter she and boyfriend, Larry Wade, were awoken around 11:30 p.m. that night by the two dogs jumping and pawing on the couples sliding door. According to a Monroe County Sheriffs Office report, the roaming dogs are owned by Yvette Renta. She lives a short distance from Clydesdale and Wade, also on 46th Street. We heard [the dogs] and got up and ran to the door, but before we could get to the door [the cats] were dead. The one dog, we had to take cat hair out of his mouth and the other had [cat hair in its] footprints on our window, Clydesdale said. She said she has necropsy reports that further confirm the two pit bulls killed her cats, which routinely slept in a flower garden outside the house. It was definitely from a large bite, Clydesdale said of the catsdeaths. She added that the cats spinal cords were completely severed and there were several 1.5-inch-deep puncture wounds, among other injuries, noted in the reports.Clydesdale said shes concerned because the dogs have been loose on several occasions and that Renta and whomever she lives with have absolutely no remorse.They had attitudes in front of the police department. She said she doesnt feel like she should apologize, she said. Renta has no listed telephone number and no one answered a reporters knock on the front door of the house Monday afternoon. The dogs could be heard barking inside the house. Clydesdale has hired Key West attorney Maggie Gutierrez to explore a civil lawsuit against Renta, possibly for compensatory and punitive damages. Im doing research to look into my clients civil remedies under Florida law, Gutierrez said.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com.Report:Owner says she isnt responsibleBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Grim outlook for old Seven MileMonroe County Commissioner Danny Kolhage said during Tuesdays County Commission meeting in Marathon that hes received about 3,000 e-mails related to the future of the historic old Seven Mile Bridge in recent months. Those e-mailers mainly supporters of repairing the failing bridge wouldnt have taken much solace in a report offered up by county consultant Nelson Canjura at that meeting. It delivered grim news about the condition of the 2.2-mile section of the span leading to Pigeon Key offshore of Marathon. The county paid Canjuras Omaha, Neb.based firm, HDR Inc., $18,000 to conduct an independent review of two complicated 2012 state Department of Transportation inspection reports that outlined the bridges general state of disrepair. Canjura told the County Commission that without major renovation, the bridge is at the end of its service life. Its at the point where its beyond that threshold, he said. The 2.2-mile section of the bridge has been closed for years to auto traffic and fishing due to concerns about the bridge falling apart. DOTowns the iconic span and has had longrunning negotiations with the county about footing a percentage of an estimated $18 million bill to repair the decking and railings in exchange for turning ownership of the bridge over to Monroe.But Canjura intimated the DOTestimate is for more of a patchwork job, and his report estimates it could cost as much as $71.76 million over 30 years to keep the bridge leading to Pigeon Key viable.If you look at the $18 million repair from FDOT, you can easily deduce that you can repeat this repair in the very near future as the other elements are requiring the repair, he said, noting DOTs estimates call only for repairing or replacing roughly one-third of the superstructure.Canjuras $71.76 million estimate does include repairs to the bridges substructure. He also prepared an estimate totaling $60 million over 30 years that would cover a complete replacement of the bridge superstructure lasting at least 75 years.

The School District spent nearly $1 million last year on outside legal services, and board members said at a Sept. 10 meeting that Porter has not provided an analysis categorizing legal fees. Attorney Dirk Smits of Vernis and Bowling serves as the boards counsel for $125 hourly. His firm, Vernis and Bowling, is also retained at $125 per hour to serve as the districts counsel, meaning when Porter or district staff need legal advice, they call Smits just like board members can.The district also hires specialists to handle workmens compensation and Exceptional Student Education lawsuits, and has previously employed a labor attorney to lead negotiations with the United Teachers of Monroe union.Porters plan is aimed at saving legal expenses, which he said should break down at around $15 or $20 per student, whereas in the Florida Keys, that cost ranges from $33 to $60 per student.The districts last in-house attorney was Richard Collins, who served from 2006 to 2011, and part of 2012 until his death.For economic reasons and for a service delivery model, I would like to look at returning to a model of a combination of a School Board attorney and outside counsel and an in-house counsel to cover the day-today legal needs of the district, he said. Board member John Dick said hes concerned that an in-house attorney could create contrasting agendas. The attorney works for the board, Dick said, and that is extremely important to me. On the whole, I think [Smits] has done good service for us. Board member Ed Davidson said the very essence of the School Board as a governmental entity prescribes that any attorney in the mix works for the board. If we have four attorneys, he said, they all work for the School Board.When someone sues the district, they dont sue the administration or the superintendent. They sue the School Board, and Im very concerned about the blurred lines.While criticizing Porter for not providing cost data, board member Robin SmithMartin said he supports Porters goal as long as the cost is neutral. I thought wed be getting a presentation of analysis to make a decision, he said. It sounds like the superintendent wants to build his leadership team and have an attorney in-house, he said. I dont have a problem if the superintendent feels like on his team he wants to have inhouse counsel and theres a relatively net zero change in cost. I think the proof is in whats it gonna cost. He reiterated, We were given no information to analyze. Dick said Smits17 years of experience with the district as a client is invaluable. The consideration of an alternative model is not based on the quality of legal services, Porter said. It more has to do with the accessibility. Porter said he would bring back a recommendation for a board vote while noting, Im hearing a lot of concerns.Davidson called outDuring the legal discussion, board Chairman Andy Griffiths pondered if one board member requests legal work if that interpreted as representing the collective will of the board. He gave the example of Davidson recently working with Smits to write a contract for auditor and accountant Steve Pribramsky to perform a post-construction analysis of the $38 million rebuild of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West.The auditing service was ultimately put out to bid with responses due on Sept. 17, but not without board members criticizing Davidson for what was perceived as an end-run.Dick said it wasnt great, while Smith-Martin called Davidsons move underhanded. To that, Davidson loudly exclaimed, bull expletive.Board members say plan lacks cost analysisBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS KEYSNET.COM Subscriptions 743-5551
construction development documents. Design documents were to be complete by Sept. 4, construction documents by Sept. 23 and bids due by Oct. 4, according to the current schedule. Thats roughly three months for what many have said is typically a sixmonth process. Horn wrote that the shortened timetable would lead to inaccurate bids and, ultimately, numerous changeorder requests that could drive the price of the city hall higher than anticipated.On Monday, Florida Keys Contractors Association President Chris Gratton sent an e-mail to council members expressing concerns with the accelerated bid process.We have been contacted by several members of our organization that plan on bidding on the project and state that it is near impossible to complete a competitive bid in the nineto 10-day time frame, he wrote.But Cinque said he believes Hernstadt did nothing wrong, and points to billions of dollars worth of contracts Hernstadt oversaw as a longtime Miami-Dade County and city of Miami employee.Hes been doing his job, as far as Im concerned, managing a contract we have. I think a couple of council people are getting close to interfering with his job, he said. Hernstadt told the Keynoter last week that he is doing what the council ordered him to when it agreed to move forward with the project get it done as soon as reasonably possible.At the Sept. 19 City Council meeting, Councilman Dick Ramsay attempted to voice major concerns with the timetable during the meetings closing comments last Tuesday, but he was interrupted and ultimately cut off by Cinque, who was angered by Ramsays timing.He had ample opportunity if he wanted to talk about it [during the meeting]. All he did was shout fire in a crowded theater, Cinque said Monday, referring to a Planning Department update earlier in the meeting. Cinque was also angered by a perceived insinuation that he was pushing the project along so he could be recognized before terming out of office after six years in November as one of the council members responsible for a new city hall. He adamantly denies that. My entire questioning of Roger on that contract is about every 10 days I ask him how its going and he says, Its going good, Cinque said. Horn told the Keynoter he has a scheduling conflict on Thursday that hes attempting to clear up, but hopes to attend the special meeting. I have a Planning Board meeting in Key West at the same time. Im trying to see if the planner involved in the project can handle that so I can go to the meeting. Itll be nice to have a meeting and talk about it and move on, he said. Murray said working with Porter on document access has always been a struggle. We are not talking about odd of exceptional behavior. Rather, my suit addresses what has become the norm with the Porter administration. It wasnt clear on Tuesday if Porter had been served with the lawsuit. But Porter who in the past has acknowledged the district could improve its publicrecords access didnt respond to a request for comment. Board Chairman Andy Griffiths said he would meet with the superintendent to find out why we cant seem to do the simplest things. He agreed that a list of supplemental pay is something that should be readily available since it presumably has figured into the districts recent budget preparation and ongoing contract negotiations with the United Teachers of Monroe union. While this is the first time that I have sued, Murray said, it is by no means the first time I have had difficulty obtaining compliance with public records requests. Last year, Murray threatened to sue even hiring former State Attorney Dennis Ward when the district wouldnt produce reports generated through the in-house and since discontinued waste, fraud and abuse hotline. When the reports finally came out, it set in motion the ouster of then-Finance Director Ken Gentile, who set up the hotline. Although there was never a formal inquiry, a review of the reports indicates Gentile rarely followed up on the anonymous hotline tips and diverted those that complained about him into a dead-end e-mail address that belonged to his former intern. Murray said he is not amendable to any out-ofcourt resolution because he wants a definitive answer from Chief Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin, who will hear the case. On Tuesday, there wasnt a court date set.

Published Keynoter 9-18-13 this month. Court documents indicate many of the arrests were made after federal fisheries investigators raided a Grassy Key marine-life business suspected of selling sharks and other species that cannot be taken without special permits, which were not issued. The new indictment says Perrin and Franko stored some of their illegal catch at a Middle Keys marine-life business, which arranged shipping to Michigan. The catch reportedly included undersized nurse sharks that were listed in documents as another species. One box shipped Sept. 1, 2011, from Marathon to Tropicorium contained prohibited sea fans ... 12 blue-line anemone shrimp ... 20 baby angelfish less than 1 inch in length, and one baby butterfly fish, the indictment says. Franko and Perrin reportedly came to the Keys in May and August 2011. Sites they fished reportedly include Halfmoon Reef off Marathon, and waters near Marathon High School. The indictment signed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Watts-Fitzgerald says each of the two men face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if convicted.

If you dont, youll find yourself gone.The new managed anchoring areas were approved by the state and county to prevent irresponsible boating practices that can lead to pollution and derelict vessels, a county brochure says. In areas like Boca Chica Basin and the Key Haven boat ramp in the Lower Keys, and the Tarpon Basin area in Key Largo, officers also target obnoxious or illegal behavior, Ramsay said. Some people no longer use the [Key Haven] boat ramp because theyre concerned and afraid to be there, Ramsay said. People are being accosted or pressured for money.... There is some crime associated with people on boats out there.The number of anchored boats off Boca Chica seems to have doubled, Ramsay said. While enforcing boating safety, registration and sanitary regulations, officers also are trying to get contact information.On most vessels with people aboard, they want to comply with the [anchoring] ordinance. Theyre doing what they can, FWC Capt. Pat Langley said. But there are quite a few unattended boats.In Boca Chica Basin and Cow Key Channel, FWC officers issued written warnings for seven vessels anchored in a no-anchoring area and four for not having required pumpout stickers. Nineteen boats were tagged as at risk of becoming derelict because of their poor condition.No citations have been issued. Weve still got a lot of work to do, said Langley, noting that Key West Harbor and other new areas have not been checked.Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said increased enforcement made a difference at the waterfront grounds at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo.The good people who live out there [on boats] realize were serious and theyre watching the no-goods, she said. Ramsay said the Sheriffs Office will conduct three months of regular patrols at the anchorages but likely will seek funding from Boating Improvement Funds to maintain the effort. County Mayor George Neugent said having a regular patrol presence on the water is so important in a county completely surrounded by water. Tarpon Basin in Key Largo is not covered as a managed anchoring area but that could change with new onshore support facilities, Neugent said. The existing anchorages were approved under a state pilot program scheduled to expire next July. However, the Florida Legislature may extend the program.Troublemakers are the targets, law officers sayON THE WATERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos RENTING?BUYING?

Much has changed since the last revision of the plan in 2005. The environmental conditions of our sanctuary continue to decline. The Florida Keys Sanctuary Condition Report of 2011 ( http://sanctuaries.noaa.gov/science/condition/fknms/welcome.html ) documents the evaluation of the critical elements of our sanctuary as Good, Good/Fair, Fair, Fair/Poor, Poor, and Undetermined. Of the 17 questions used to rate the conditions of the critical elements of water, habitat, living resources and maritime archaeological resources, none are Good, only one is Good/Fair, three are Fair, 10 are Fair/Poor, one is Poor, and one is Undetermined. After decades of monitoring the decline of our marine environments, we are now developing the science and technology that will add Restoration to the sanctuary tool kit of Preservation, Conservation, Education and Outreach, Management, and Enforcement. In addition to monitoring the condition of our living marine natural resources, we can now work on active ecosystem restoration. We can grow and restore the critical species, corals, herbivores and others that are essential to the health of our marine ecosystems. In order to accomplish preservation and restoration of our sanctuary, we need to revisit the marine zoning, boundaries, and rules of our sanctuary. The Sanctuary Advisory Council, made up of representatives from Keys communities, is the front line of this revision. Our suggestions and plans will be the first outline for sanctuary and legal efforts at management-plan development. The SAC needs community involvement and suggestions to make this plan compatible with the economic, recreational and environmental requirements of Keys residents. So far, the commercial elements of the community have been very vocal with a message that additional zoning and regulation is not welcome. However, environmental considerations, including restoration and ecological protection, are also very important. The plan will require the consensus, compromise and cooperation of the community. Compromise is difficult and it cannot be reached if only one element of the community provides input. We need not only the commercial elements but also those with recreational and environmental interests to provide council and opinion. There are four public meetings this month to seek community input on development of the new management plan for the sanctuary. We need all perspectives to be represented at these meetings. Martin Moe Sanctuary Advisory Council MarathonKeys knowledge goes farI read a letter in the Keynoter saying to support the Wild Bird Center. Walking along the pier in Laguna Beach, Calif., recently, we saw a cormorant with two hooks in his beak and one in his wing. Everyone was standing around looking at the bird and doing nothing, not even calling animal rescue. Jeannette Preston, who lived in Marathon from the time she was 5, caught the bird and removed all the hooks to a standing ovation. Even heard one remark: Shes dressed for the occasion. Just thought you would like to know what she learned in the Keys has gone nationwide. I am a very proud father. Jerry Kranz MarathonACA help availableOne mission of the League of Women Voters is to educate voters about important issues in a bipartisan, just-the-facts way. In a state that is second in the nation in the rate of uninsured citizens, one of those important issues is the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).As president of the local chapter, I wanted to find information to help me educate Upper Keys residents about the exchanges that will open on Oct. 1. My research led me to an article about the navigators being trained to explain these exchanges. That sounded like a good idea.It was shocking, then, to hear of the Florida Department of Healths decision to bar these federal navigators from county health units, preventing working-class Floridians from even receiving information about how to enroll in private insurance plans while at county health departments. By shutting out these navigators, the state has left some of its most vulnerable citizens in the dark about how to use the online Marketplace to find the healthcare coverage they need.The state has already made a wrong choice in refusing to accept the federal money for Medicaid expansion. Accepting the money is an economic no-brainer: $51 billion from the federal government over the next 10 years would provide a huge boost to Floridas economy, and the 120,000 jobs some studies project the expansion would create are much needed in a state still struggling with high unemployment.With the Oct. 1 opening of the online health-care marketplace fast approaching, I only hope that the state will reverse its policy immediately. In the meantime, the Upper Keys League of Women Voters will host speakers at its October general meeting who will discuss aspects of the Affordable Care Act, including the online marketplace. The meeting will be on Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. at the Key Largo Library community room and is free to the public. The library is in Trade Winds Plaza at mile marker 101.4 oceanside. Catherine Bosworth TavernierSpecial interests dominateOn Oct. 1, Key West voters will be asked to vote on the following question: Shall the city of Key West request that the Army Corps of Engineers conduct a comprehensive feasibility study, at no monetary cost to the city, to determine the environmental, economic and social impacts of widening the Key West main ship channel for use by modern and longer cruise ships while also addressing navigational safety? The Corps would charge $3 million, with half of that paid through a nonfederal match. If there is a yes vote and the study proceeds, a special-interest group composed of individuals and organizations has agreed to pay the citys share of the studys cost. That is how it is at no monetary cost to the city. This payment is, in effect, a gift to the city, and it is unsecured.For the members of the special-interest group, it is an investment in which they expect a return namely, significant economic benefits for themselves.Also, if there is a yes vote and the study proceeds, the city will have to devote staff and resources to the study to assist the Corps of Engineers. This will clearly be a cost to the city and contradicts the ballot question language.More important, though, do you want your city to be obligated to, or even have the appearance of being obligated to, any special-interest group? There are many of us in America who feel that special-interest groups already have an undue influence on all levels of our governments. Dave Horn Key West New Vineyard, MaineBeware the pit bullsWe just wanted to inform all of the residents in the area of 46th street in Marathon to be aware of incident that happened on Sept. 3 at 11:30 p.m. We were sleeping and were awoken by a loud noise outside of our home. As I opened the curtain in front of our slider, two pit bull dogs were jumping on the slider. They then turned and ran down the driveway.We went outside to check on our two cats, both 18 years old, that sleep in the flower bed in the area where we heard the noise, only to find both of the cats had been killed and left in the driveway.We called the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and they responded, as did Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys. We caught the dogs and put leashes on them, as we recognized them as the dogs down the street. Adeputy arrived and was informed of what happened. The deputy walked down the street and woke up the owner to come get the dogs. Then the deputy took information and pictures. The dog owners son was there in the street making comments like why all of this for two dead cats. He further was very disrespectful to the deputy.SHARK arrived and went down the street to see the dogs and to get information. The deputy then returned and was given our information and then took the cats and said he would be back the next day to give a citation to the dogsowner. The next day, I was at work and next to our home when I found another cat that was dead. SHARK was called about this incident, also. The animal control officer arrived back in the morning and the owner was cited and fined $200.The owner was asked to provide proof of vaccines; to date they have not been able to produce these records, so the dogs have a 10-day quarantine to the owners property. The owner has stated they are not responsible and will not pay the fine.Since this, we have been told the same two pit bull dogs were seen on another night in the area, where a third cat was found as they chased a man that was walking his dog at 11 p.m. He had to run back to his home with his dog.I would like to thank the Sheriffs Office and SHARK for their quick response and assistance, and providing us with the information we have available to us as residents to pursue this further.Bonnie Clydesdale Larry Wade MarathonSafer riders comingThe Monroe County School District and Marathon High School have again committed to assist in bringing a valuable service to the community. With their cooperation, we are able to continue to conduct the stateapproved Florida Riding Training Program classes at Marathon High. This enables Keys residents to get the motorcycle endorsement on their license and attend the state-required classes right here in the Keys, thereby saving the locals having to go to the mainland and spending two or three times the amount in money and time.We thank Suanne Lee at the district office for her assistance, and Marathon High Principal Hammond Gracy and his staff, especially Regina Ryan, Vanessa Moodley and Teresa Konrath for their support. Kevin Freeman needs to be acknowledged for teaching motorcycle safety awareness to his drivers education students. Thank you, all.Lets all be safe out there on the road and share the road safely. Rupert A. Staudner MarathonHow did the Village Council not know about added costs for its wastewater system?Most elected officials dont like surprises. Especially, the kind that come in big newspaper headlines on a topic thats already a sore point. That seems to be the reaction in the village of Islamorada, where council members learned from T he Reporter of a possible $6.5 million surprise changeorder bill for the citys wastewater treatment system. When our sister newspaper, The Reporter broke the story last Thursday morning, it caught the mayor and members of the council flat-footed. Mayor Ken Philipson said he did not know about the change order or delays that Reynolds Water Islamorada warned would result in shifting from gravity pumps to a vacuum system for outlying areas. During the councils regularly scheduled meeting later that night, Councilman David Purdo questioned how much the village is paying its wastewater consultants to avoid such surprises. And he challenged fees being paid to local consulting firm Wade Trim and Michigan-based Wyler Engineering. In the 10 months the consultants have been on the job, the two firms have billed the village nearly $3 million in fees. By contrast, Monroe County hired the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority to oversee its approximately $150 million Cudjoe Regional sewer construction project for a flat rate of $7 million. Former Islamorada Mayor Chris Sante, in a letter circulated to Village Council members last week, raised the question on many minds: You are looking at a cost of $6.5 million ... for a change order to service about 40 hookups. Where is the common sense in that? Well, of course, there isnt any common-sense yardstick applied when it comes to the village and its checkered history on wastewater. For residents with poor memories, recall the tortured path of negotiations that took place between the Village Council and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board. At one point in 2011, Key Largo wastewater officials said treating Islamoradas sewage would cost $11.5 million. Islamorada councilmen responded with a $3 million counteroffer, prompting Key Largo to end negotiations. Eventually, cooler heads prevailed on both sides, and that impasse was overcome. But the disturbing pattern of starts, stops and bumps along the road reflect poorly on village leadership. And the latest $6.5 million change order surprise certainly reinforces that reputation. The village council has called a workshop for Oct. 9 to discuss these and other wastewater billing issues. That meeting begins at 3 p.m. in the community room in Founders Park. This is one not to miss if you have any questions or concerns about costs and oversight on the villages $91 million (soon to be $98 million?) sewer project.Wayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

AMonroe County gov-ernment budget thatincludes pay raises forcounty workers passedThursday, but when themoney shows up in pay-checks remains uncertain.The newly approvedoperating budget of $286.7million for the fiscal yearthat states Oct. 1 includes$600,000 in raises to beshared by the countys 500-plus employees, but countycommissioners and CountyAdministrator RomanGastesi could not settle onhow to award individualpay hikes.It was the most con-tentious issue at the KeyWest hearing before the finalbudget and property-tax ratewon approval on 4-1 votes.The new ad valorem rateof $4.02 per $1,000 of tax-able assessed property valuewill cost the owner of a prop-erty with a taxable assess-ment of $300,000 about$1,206 annually for unincor-porated county expenses,including the MonroeCounty Sheriffs Office.It does not include prop-erty taxes for schools, mos-quito control, water manage-ment or special districts. Due to rising propertyvalues and new construc-tion, the tax rate is below thecurrent rate but 2.67 percentabove the rollback rate,which would raise the sameamount of tax money nextfiscal year as in the currentone. The new rate will gen-erate about $77 million fromproperty taxes, up about $2million from this year.Commissioner HeatherCarruthers voted against themillage and operating budg-et after her motion to delayraises, pending completionof an ongoing salary study,was defeated, 3-2.How can you say no tothis motion? Carruthersasked sharply. She later saidthe commission was flyingblind absent this compensa-tion study.Other commissionerssaid they would authorizeraises expected to aver-age around 3 percent once theyre satisfied with amerit-pay plan forwarded byGastesi.Gastesi intended toaward raises mostly as acost-of-living increase tonearly all staff but withholdraises from some slackersout there.This is vague,Commissioner DannyKolhage said. We donthave the details.Average employees shouldget a cost-of-living increase,commissioners said, but high-performing employeesdeserve more money.The board kept money forraises in the budget but askedGastesi to provide a specificplan for merit increases.Kolhage cast the lonevote against the countyscapital-improvement budgetof $130 million, saying that$2.7 million listed for repair-ing the old Seven MileBridge should be movedinto land acquisition.With repairs to the oldbridge to cost far more thanthe county could afford,Kolhage said, these moniesought to be budgeted forserious things that may actu-ally happen.Kolhage also has criticizeda proposal to spend $5 millionto buy the Rowells Marinaproperty in Key Largo forpublic use but did not raisethat objection Thursday.Newly included in thebudget is $226,000 for theMonroe County HealthDepartment to provide vac-cinations against human-papilloma virus for 300 localwomen. The virus can causecervical cancer.Commissioners acknowl-edged the importance of thevaccine but blamed theFlorida Legislature for notproviding funding.Only a handful of resi-dents commented on thecounty budget at two hear-ings and an open meeting.

The Lady Canes (5-3) regrouped after the one-sided opening game, he said. By the competitive third game, the Canes were countering with an attack of their own.Main hitters Ellie Leopold and Melissa Helphrey combined for 14 kill shots against the Raiders defense. Amberlyn Casas turned in one of her best matches this fall with four blocks at the net.Brooklyn Irwin contributed a phenomenal effort with defensive digs and solid passes, the coach said. At midseason, Thiery said, the Canes have a very sound understanding of our strengths and play toward them while trying to improve on our weaknesses. The Canes got a chance to test their progress on the road against district power Gulliver Prep, and at home against Florida Christian, earlier this week (scores pending at press time).

See Conchs,2BConch Milliken sets school recordBefore sunrise Saturday, six girls high school crosscountry teams gathered at the start line on a dew-covered fairway at the Key West Golf Club. Former Conch coach Rick Mackenzie, who had set up the 3.1-mile course with 300 orange flags and a good number of pylons, blew a conch shell and the runners were off. Among them was Key West senior Tristin Milliken and she was off to the run of her young life. As Milliken and 53 other runners from Westminster Christian, West Orange, Cyprus, Matanzas and Coral Shores loped along the course, spectators gathered near the finish line and chatted about race strategy. After about 20 minutes, Kat MacNeal of Cypress came in first. Seven others followed, and then came Milliken striding desperately toward the finishing chute on the 18th fairway. The digital clock above it ticked down 21:57, 21:58 and then, at 21:59, Milliken was home. By one second, she had broken the school girls record Morgan Nelson had set in 2009 and that had been her goal. The night before, she had been one of the cheerleaders at the football game. And now ... this.Running is my passion, she said, as her beaming mother, Tricia, Principal Amber Bosco and coach Terence White congratulated her.She spoke of the torture of the hills at the top of the home stretch and the energy that got her over them: I was dying and I was so nervous. Milliken led the Conch girls to fourth place the next five runners were Chloe Savoi (22:44), Jane Welzien (23:26), Emily Good (24:33), Meaghan McCullah (24:46)Cane runners finish sixth at Key WestBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP CROSS COUNTRYSee Running,2B

Both teams had one match remaining. The Dolphins lost to Palm Beach Gardens, 26-24 and 25-19, to finish the tourney 2-3, and the Conchs, tired from their sixth match in less than 48 hours (they had played in Miami on Thursday night) lost to Hardee, 25-21, 25-11.

But with time running out in the half, the Scorpions cut the lead to 14-7 on a fouryard Allen touchdown run.The third quarter (Key West was stopped on the Scorps16) was scoreless. Then came the fatal fourth. The Conchs, on their way to 14 penalties, unraveled. At one point, assistant coach Dave Van Loon yelled out to his defense, We are single-handedly keeping them in the game. Allen ran nine yards for a TD with 7:12 left, but the extra point was blocked and the Conchs still led, 14-13.On their next possession, the Conchsrunning game the teams strong point was bottled up. Breakaway threats Jeffery Anilus and Mehki Sargent were met with swarms of tacklers, forcing a punt.Satellite Beach got the ball back on its 29 with three minutes left. Behind Allens running and passing and helped by offsides penalties the Scorps steadily drove down the field. They had a first-andgoal at the 10, but three plays later were only at the five and facing a fourth down. Austin Downie came on the field and kicked a 22yard field goal just before the final buzzer.The Conchs were left with the reality that the hard part of the schedule is about to begin. They will host Gulliver Prep at 7:30 Friday night.Powerful Gulliver is nextFrom Conchs,1B and Sahara Graft (24:55). The girlselation was still fresh when the boys race began, with Matanzas, a team from Palm Coast, heavily favored. Everett Wagner, Key Wests top runner, was coming off a disappointing run in the season opener. But midway through the race he could be seen (one shoe purple, one orange) on the far side of a lake in fifth place.When glimpsed again, he was pounding down the stretch to finish second in 18:02 27 seconds behind winner Drake Goodman of Matanzas. It was the fastest Wagner had ever run the course.He also wanted to erase the memory of losing to Coral ShoresSteven Chadwick the week before. He was ready for sure, said Chadwick, who, hampered by a strained oblique, finished 31st in 20:41. The next five finishers for the Conchs, who took second place behind Matanzas, were Zach Lightfoot (19:11), Jerry Burgess (19:30), Steven Hobson (19:52), Leif Cisneros (19:55) and William Welzien (20:05). Both Coral Shores teams, coached by Mary Jo Fry, finished sixth.Jesse Wollangk (22nd in 20:10) led the boys, followed by Chadwick, Pablo Gonzalez (21:35), Ken Stokes (23:41), Patrick Holt (25:08) and Bernard Lietaert (25:19).The Hurricane girls were led by Marissa Bogue (35th in 27:25), followed by Darian Gibson (27:52), Ivy Summers (28:43), Kyia Herlth (31:20) and Meghan Murphy (34:17).Keys are in middle of packFrom Running,1BPhoto by BERT BUDDEAhead of MatazasAnthony Colasanti,the ConchsEverett Wagner heads toward the finish line and second place at Saturdays race.

Fortunately, there are benefits to this other than the obvious regular exercise I get. I have become acquainted with my neighbors out on the road and its very pleasant being able to exchange news and catch up informally whenever I see them outside. I also get a kick seeing how many homes place recycling receptacles by the road on pickup days. Its quite a number and the homes are a mixture of owners, renter and vacationers.In the winter, I get to see the wading birds in the nearby lake during their early morning feeding. Last winter, I saw white pelicans, roseate spoonbills, herons, egrets, ibis and cormorants. They congregate in the lake to take advantage of the shallower water in the winter to catch small fish. Its a wonderful sight.Year round, I get to test my ID skills on the abundance of native plants growing alongside the road. So far I have found mayten, Jamaica dogwood, seven year apple, joewood, blackbead, ox eye daisy, blacktorch, buttonwood, black and red mangrove, seagrape and mouses pineapple a great name for a plant. My dog would be happy walking and sniffing the same road every day but whenever I feel the urge to go somewhere different, I take her with me on local errands. On a couple of recent trips to my local Winn-Dixie shopping plaza, we walked around the perimeter of the plaza along the road and behind the stores. I thought it would be nice to see some different scenery. What an eye-opener. If there was any doubt that there is a proliferation of plastic bags, plastic and glass bottles, cans and takeout boxes, a walk around the plaza will cast that aside. I was saddened to see the amount of trash scattered throughout the parking areas, caught in the shrubs, accumulated behind buildings and tossed beside parked cars.As some of you may know, I have been involved with the Got Your Bags? Florida Keys group to reduce plastic bag use in the Keys. The group has been together for a year and we have made some inroads with our outreach but there is always more to do.Aside from the unsightliness, trash can easily become a hazard to our wildlife and marine life in the National Key Deer Refuge and, in a larger sense, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Trash pollutes our surrounding waters once it enters storm drains or gets swept into the nearshore waters through wind and rain.Recently the Sheriffs Office and others organized community cleanups and the turnout was good. The National Marine Sanctuary Team Ocean group organizes many cleanups along shorelines. But I wonder if other businesses, residents and community groups could get together and organize cleanups around their storefronts, neighborhoods and streets. The problem could also be tackled at the source by skipping the plastic bag and using reusable bags wherever possible, fewer plastic bottles, having more trash and recycling bins outside businesses, secure lids on residential garbage bins to deter the Key deer and raccoons that tend to knock them down and rummage in them.Its a collaborative effort from which we would all benefit even though my dog might be disappointed in finding fewer scraps on her walks.Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education she can be reached at ShirleyGLEE@comcast.net.Already, some groups taken it upon themselvesGREEN LIVING Living Photo courtesy MOSQUITO CONTROL DISTRICTFlorida Keys Mosquito Control District inspectors Larry Leopard and John Carson work Sept. 10 and 11 to remove debris on Stock Island.The large-scale effort tackled several wooded areas to remove debris that potentially provides haven for Asian-Tiger mosquitoes to breed.The garbage was overflowing in the rented dumpster within the first five hours of disposal work.Shirley Gun GreenLiving Report: Bacteria more powerfulFor the first time, the U.S. government is estimating how many people die from drug-resistant bacteria each year more than 23,000, or about as many as those killed annually by flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the number Monday to spotlight the growing threat of germs that are hard to treat because theyve become resistant to drugs. Finally estimating the problem sends a very powerful message, said Dr. Helen Boucher, a Tufts University expert and spokeswoman for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Were facing a catastrophe. Antibiotics like penicillin and streptomycin first became widely available in the 1940s, and today dozens are used to kill or suppress the bacteria behind illnesses ranging from strep throat to the plague. The drugs are considered one of the greatest advances in the history of medicine, and have saved countless lives. But as decades passed, some antibiotics stopped working against the bugs they previously vanquished. Experts say their overuse and misuse have helped make them less effective. In a new report, the CDC tallied the toll of the 17 most worrisome drugresistant bacteria. The result: Each year, more than 2 million people develop serious infections and at least 23,000 die. Of those, the staph infection MRSA, or methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus, kills about 11,000, and a new superbug kills about 600. That bacteria withstand treatment with antibiotics called carbapenems considered one of the last lines of defense against hard-to-treat bugs. Germs like those have prompted health officials to warn that if the situation gets much worse, it could make doctors reluctant to do surgery or treat cancer patients if antibiotics wont protect their patients from getting infections.Drugs to fight them lessening in effectivenessAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTHMariners has new Parkinsons toolDaTscan, a new brainimaging procedure now available at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier, may lead to more timely and appropriate diagnoses of Parkinsonism syndromes, including Parkinsons disease, hospital officials say. Mariners is the only Monroe County hospital to offer this procedure, which can be valuable for physicians looking to diagnose why patients may be suffering from symptoms that are common to Parkinsons disease, such as tremors, loss of balance or coordination, shuffling walk or other movement problems. Traditionally, a diagnosis of Parkinsons has been based solely on a clinical evaluation of symptoms. DaTscan serves as a supplemental resource to a doctors evaluation of Parkinsons and helps with patients whose symptoms are inconclusive or who have a confusing diagnosis, said Fran Glick, director of imaging services. Aphysicians examination is still the first and most important step in the diagnosis of Parkinsons disease, Glick said, but this imaging test gives doctors an important diagnostic tool to find answers as soon as possible. We are proud to bring the DaTscan to our patients and local community, as it will support our doctors in providing earlier diagnostic answers, which can influence the most appropriate longterm treatment of Parkinsons and offer patients the best possible clinical outcomes. To schedule a DaTscan procedure, call 434-1588. A doctors prescription is required for the test.
