Rick Scott to give Florida teachers $2,500 pay raises has taken a different path for the Monroe County School District.Superintendent Mark Porter plans to recommend spending $1.4 million from the raise pool to eliminate seven unpaid furlough days.The teachers union still in negotiations doesnt view that as a raise at all. And the final outcome of the negotiations is still very much a work in progress, according to UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman. Using Scotts education budget as a jumping off point, the state Legislature tapped $480 million for raises but left it up to each of the states 67 school districts to divvy up the funds through collective bargaining with local teachersunions.Further departing from Scotts plan, lawmakers opted to include teachers and additionally other categories of employees like guidance counselors and administrators.While the legislatively approved . additional revenue for teacher and other employee salary increases was advertised as a performance pay initiative, Porter told the Keynoter subsequent clarifications on this legislation indicated that it could be used as locally determined.For Monroe County the total raise pool comes out to $1.4 million with around $190,000 going to charters. And because Monroe is a property rich county, 90 percent of schools funding is raised locally, which means the state actually is kicking in only $100,000 of the $1.4 million total. The remaining $1.3 million comes from property taxes.

Vice President Bill Spottswood has never been happier to relieve himself of $254,000. Thats the amount of the check he cut Monday to finalize building permits with the city of Marathon for the long awaited Faro Blanco Marine Resort at mile marker 47.5 bayside. The once bustling resort and marina was one of the Middle Keys premier tourist destinations in years past. According to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office, Spottswood Cos. purchased Faro Blanco in May of 2000 for $8 million. Spottswood told the Keynoter its been offline since around Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. He said hes been hoping for several years to pull the permits and credited Planning Director George Garrett, City Manager Roger Hernstadt and the City Council for their help with the project. I was pretty emotional when I wrote that check, he said. That was a big day for me and my group; a big day for Marathon. Its been a long and winding road. Demolition, site cleanup and landscaping work have been underway since June, but pulling building permits means contractor Coastal Construction has the go ahead to build the resorts 125-room Hyatt hotel. There isnt any more speculation; were doing it, Spottswood said.

Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Joyce Griffin said her office has sent out 3,264 absentee ballots and so far has gotten 1,432 completed ballots back to be counted. On the ballot, voters will be asked to choose the next mayor and District 1 commission seat, fill a seat on the Keys Utility board, and vote on a controversial referendum to study channel widening that will accommodate larger ships in Key West Harbor. Early voting began Sept. 16 and continues until Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Elections office, 530 Whitehead St., Key West. Hours for early voting: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.Absentee ballot count reaches 20 percentELECTIONKeynoter StaffStates main witness hits a roadblockThe states second-degree murder case against Nicholas Ferro hit a major roadblock Tuesday when the testimony of one of its main witnesses turned out to be different from what was shown to defense attorneys during discovery. Key West Police Department Detective Janeth Calvert testified Tuesday that she interviewed witness Patrick Stickney twice after the stabbing death of Marquese Butler on Oct. 31, 2009. Calvert said she interviewed Stickney the day Butler died and two days later. She said during Tuesdays trial that both conversations were documented in a report she had written. But when Edward ODonnell, Ferros attorney, had Calvert reread her report, the only conversation with Stickney she documented was the second interview, one which she recorded. ODonnell said he never knew before Tuesday that Calvert spoke with Stickney on Oct. 31. Stickneys statements to Calvert are important to the prosecutions case against Ferro, the 26-year-old who says he stabbed Butler with a 2 -inch pocket knife in an act of self defense while he was trying to save his friend, Jorge Averoff, from a brutal beating from up to 20 men at around 4 a.m. that day on Caroline Street. Butler, who was 23, died in surgery later that morning. The jury couldnt reach a verdict in Ferros original trial in March 2012 with Circuit Court Judge David Audlin. Ferros retrial is in its second week, with Judge Luis Garcia presiding in Plantation Key. Stickney told Calvert he was the only one fighting Averoff, who suffered a knot on the head and torn clothing. Ferro and Averoff were in Key West with a group of other friends, all from Hollywood, for the annual Fantasy Fest celebration. Ferros defense attorneys say the tourists were taunted and attacked by Stickney, Butler and a large group of other Key West young men. ODonnell accusedFerro murder trial expected to wrap FridayBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comIN THE COURTSSee Election,2ASee Trial,2ASee Schools,3ACandidate profiles, 2A and 3A
Assistant State Attorney Breezye Telfair of willful discovery violation because Tuesday was the first time he had heard that Stickney talked to Calvert on the day Butler was killed. The only interview mentioned in Calverts report and the only one the defense knew about until Tuesday was the one that happened days later. But Calvert did tell prosecutors about the first interview during discovery, it was revealed Tuesday. Theres absolutely no mention of any statement Patrick Stickeny gave you on Oct. 31, 2009 because [the prosecutors] chose to omit it, ODonnell said.ODonnell demanded either Calverts entire testimony be excluded from the record or that he be able to extensively cross examine Calvert. Garcia agreed that there was a discovery violation and allowed the cross examination. Stickney, 25, has a long rap sheet and does not have a friendly relationship with the Key West PD. So, it was seen as unusual for him to voluntarily go to the police station, as Calvert said he did, to give a statement about a case. The interview documented in Calverts report was given after Stickney was arrested on a loitering charge. Calvert found out he was in jail and went to him, she said during cross examination. The day before, Key West surgeon Rhoda Smith testified about the emergency surgery she performed on Butler in an operating room at the Lower Keys Medical Center. Smith said Butler was stabbed with enough force that the small knife penetrated about six inches into his lower left abdomen, sliced holes in the front and back of his stomach and damaged his pancreas. His abdominal cavity was filled with blood because the blade severed his splenic artery, which runs either through, in front of or behind the pancreas. Ferros trial is expected to last until the end of the week. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. As of Friday, 274 voters had cast early ballots at the elections office. There are 15,087 registered voters in Key West.

For more information, please contact 305-481-0438 Craig CatesAge:60.Born in Key West.Married with two daughters.Retired former owner of NAPA Auto Parts. Two-term incumbent Mayor Craig Cates wants to continue his push for addressing homeless issues in the Southernmost City that has marked his four years in elected office. Most recently,Cates faced resistance from the City Commission as he works to replace the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island with a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week homeless service center on cityowned property on College Road on Stock Island.. Its a complex issue,Cates said,but made clear that pending litigation brought against KOTS by an adjacent homeowners association could force the issue, making a new facility paramount. We could end up with no location and theyd be camping out in public and on [South Roosevelt] Boulevard like they used to,the mayor said. He credited efforts to amend local law to restrict panhandling,camping and drinking in public with reducing the citys homeless count but said moving forward,any plan would require buy-in from myriad government and nonprofit entities. On the controversial issue of widening Key Wests shipping channel to accommodate larger cruise ships, Cates said he favors a federal study to analyze the economic and environmental impacts. The study will tell us if it can be done and what the impacts will be,he said.Then the commission and citizens can still give their input. Cates discussed pending plans to build a three-story parking deck at 525 Angela St.and mentioned examining a soon-to-expire lease for property along Greene Street that could be used as a parking lot as a way to relieve some of the strain on the neighborhoods. Asked about the lack of progress on developing the 33-acre Truman Waterfront into a park,Cates said in the past three years the city has adopted a master development plan and he has traveled twice to Tallahassee to meet with state park officials to coordinate entrance from the waterfront to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. In the last three years it has moved faster than it had in the previous 10 years,he said. He also lauded a shift in how city staff deals with residents in areas like building permits,planning approval and code compliance.We work for the residents.The citizens are our customers. Tom MiloneAge:67.Lived in Key West 12 years.Single.Retired clerk for the New York State Supreme Court. Active government watchdog Tom Milone ran against Weekley in 2009 but his campaign took a major hit when he was mugged by four local youths,sustaining a broken jaw,among other serious injuries.Fittingly,public safety is one of Milones central campaign talking points. That has several components,including more and better street lighting,he said.And Im an advocate of surveillance cameras networked with private-sector cameras.Thats another big thing. Of privacy concerns,he said,There is no right to privacyand noted that oftentimes victims,including himself,are of no help to the police,making cameras even more valuable. Milone has also focused on using Key Wests federal lobbying presence to work with the U.S.Navy to bring more permanent military and civilian defense jobs to Key West,which hosts Naval Air Station Key Wests five installments. The [federal government] sequester wont last forever,he said.That shouldnt keep us from lobbying the Navy down here.Those are good-paying jobs. Like his District 1 opponent,incumbent Commissioner Jimmy Weekley,Milone wants to address the parking crush in crowded Old Town. I think the way to make more residential parking spaces available is to redirect our tourists to city-owned parking lots and garages,then have a shuttle system to take them to and from their lodging,he said.You have to let tourists know:Dont park on our streets. He said that would require public/private partnerships with the lodging and tourism industries. Milone also mentioned that while he regards city finances as healthy,he would be a proponent for increasing operating reserves to more than 100 days of emergency money at a cost of about $111,000 per day. The last time around,Weekley garnered 68.11 percent of the vote compared to Milones 31.89 percent,or 630 votes to 295.I dont know what the voters are thinking,Milone said. Im running because I have things to say to the voters. Margaret RomeroAge:62.Born in Key West.SingleRetired IBM executive consultant. Margaret Romero is a fixture as a most-often critic at Key West City Commission meetings and hopes to formalize her advocacy in her second attempt to unseat incumbent Mayor Craig Cates. Romero previously applied for the city manager job, won by Bob Vitas in 2012,but didnt make the short list of applicants.Cates has championed services for the citys homeless population,but Romero said she would work to not make it as attractive for the chronically homeless to be here. That would be accomplished,she said,by instituting a database that records names,Social Security numbers and fingerprints when homeless people access social services.If we had that,those who have arrest warrants out or other things,we would know what were dealing with, she said.I dont think theyd be as prone to come down if they knew wed be checking them. Romero also wants to work to keep the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District on Stock Island land owned by the city rather than use Mosquito Controls building, whose lease with the city is nearly expired,on College Road for homeless services. She said pushing park development at the Truman Waterfront would be a priority and said while the expensive master plan is phased in,at least we could put some grass down there so someone could go throw a Frisbee. Romero also questions Catespush for converting Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street into a new city hall its already a done deal with the Monroe County School District and said the cost is likely to inflate well above $20 million to do so.She prefers keeping City Hall on Angela Street,but that building is falling apart and infested with mold.City staff now works out of leased office space. We were ready to go at Angela Street then the mayor popped up,Romero said. If Im elected,Ill work hard to bring accountability and transparency to local government both in dealing with city staff and with the public,she said. Part of that,Romero said,would be a comprehensive review of city leases to private enterprise to look for any sweetheart deals or any business,whether its registered as a nonprofit organization,that gets profit or benefit based on the taxpayersbacks. In 2011,Cates beat Romero with 2,779 votes (70.2 percent) to 1,087 (27.5 percent). Terms changingWith the upcoming citywide election in Key West set for Oct.1,whoever wins seats on the Key West City Commission and Key West Utility Board will serve abbreviated terms. Thats because the city is normalizing its election schedule from odd-numbered to even-numbered years to conform to the county,state and federal timelines. That means whoever wins the mayoral seat,normally a two-year term,will serve just one year and the seat will be up for re-election in 2014. For city commissioner and Utility Board members who normally serve four-year terms,that will go down to three years,setting the stage for another election in 2016,which will then return commission and Utility Board terms to four years,and the mayoral seat to two years. The general election is set for Oct.1 with runoff scheduled for Nov.5 if needed. Murder trial may wrap by FridayFrom Trial,1A FERROJimmy WeekleyAge:66.Born in Key West.Married with three kids.Owns the Faustos Food Palace grocery stores. Incumbent District 1 Key West City Commissioner Jimmy Weekley intends to continue his focus on quality-of-life issues that have marked his 24 non-contiguous years in elected office. I still want to work on residential parking and try to resolve those issues,he said of the citys complex Old Town parking situation,which encompasses meters, garages and three different parking pass programs. Weekley said Duval Street enhancementis a priority;his last concept for periodic road closures to set up cafe zonesfor Duval businesses didnt make it past the City Commission. Then Id also like to see some enhancements to Bayview Park,between Jose Marti Drive and Truman Avenue.Im very interested in looking at a beautification project. Another major capital project on Weekleys radar is the development of the 33-acre Truman Waterfront, which tacitly began in 2002 when he,then as mayor, signed documents transferring the parcel from the U.S.Navy to the city for economic development. Weekley reflected on his work on the transfer more than a decade ago as well as the extensive vetting and design work in the interim,which has resulted in a detailed master park development plan. Now we have to perform,he said.Before you have a completion date,you have to have a starting date. He expects a groundbreaking in the spring and mentioned an ongoing funding source as paramount to the destination parkcomplete with waterfront promenade,amphitheater and the like being fully realized. He also discussed ongoing public works projects in the Caroline Street corridor,which we need to continue focusing on,that include unified signs,streetscapes and lighting along with new sidewalks and drainage overhauls. Its all about improving what we have,quality of life,he said.
Acareer in medicine wasnt always in the forefront of Marathon native Chris Garretts mind.He did much the same thing as thousands of his fellow Florida State University students, changing his major on numerous occasions. So much so that he fell just a course short of achieving five separate minor concentrations. The 23-year-old was focused on pursuing his passion to play baseball, even enduring a grueling rehab from a near-fatal 2009 car accident in Northern California to return to the game. He was rewarded with a torn rotator cuff and lots of time to think about what comes next. Before I was in the accident I was focused on trying to play baseball and school was secondary. I wasnt ignoring my grades or anything, but after that I tried playing some more and tore my rotator cuff, Garrett explained. It would have been nice to have a less painful epiphany, but the silver lining was Garrett developed an appreciation for all things medicine. Ive been so surrounded by medicine and I was so engulfed in the medical world that it gave me insight into what I really enjoyed about medicine. I started looking at it as a degree, he said.The end result for the 2008 Marathon High School graduate was an exercise science degree this past May and a 2014 admission to the Florida State University College of Medicine. Garrett starts classes on May 27 and should be pretty well booked until hes at least 30 years old. There will be four years of medical school, followed by a threeto fiveyear residency and possibly a fellowship in whatever specialty he might pursue. Thats all well and good, Garrett told the Keynoter Hes found his calling and is more than willing to see it through. Hes working now as a medical assistant at the general practice office of Dr. John MacKay in Tallahassee. Hes got a couple of proud parents as well in city of Marathon Planning Director George Garrett and Debbie Harrison-Rumberger, a wellknown Keys environmental activist and former longtime director of the World Wildlife Funds Florida program. Hes worked very hard and been extremely conscientious. His success reflects a strong involvement from the Marathon community, Harrison-Rumberger said. I feel proud for our whole community that we can raise our kids and launch them into successful careers. Hes done great. I cant say any more, George Garrett said. I couldnt be prouder. Its all from them. I would never be the person I am without their influence, he saidNow Garrett just has to make mom happy and move back to the Keys once school is finished. I love the Keys. I would come back in a heartbeat but it depends on where the job takes me, he said. Porter planned to recommend the district use the $1.4 million raise pool, plus other unassigned funds, to cancel out the furlough program, instituted in 2010 to cut $1.7 million from the annual budget.As to the perception, or lack thereof, of a raise, I think it is important to understand that the prior financial challenges of the [School District] were very real and imposition of the furlough days was necessary in order to turn the corner toward financial stability.Can you call it a raise? board member John Dick said. I guess not. But we can give back something we took away. We were in a financial bind and we had to do something or go broke.Then-Superintendent Joseph Burke started the furlough program in 2010 when the district cut more than $13 million in spending over a two-year period. United Teachers of Monroe leaders unsuccessfully contested the unilateral cut with the state Public Employee Relations Commission and later the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee.Porter commented on the different perceptions associated with a raise as opposed to a furlough reinstatement.It is indeed intriguing to me how the good news of restoration of the previously imposed furlough days can so quickly be turned into the bad news of is that all.I am pleased that we can take this significant step forward on behalf of our employees.Porter and Dick both left the door open for employee raises beyond the $1.7 million furlough restoration cost as negotiations with UTM continue. As to any further salary increases that may or may not be forthcoming, Porter said, such efforts are subject to the ongoing collective bargaining process. UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman: We are still trying to work all of this out at the [bargaining] table. The $1.4 million teacher salary increase allocation was reduced by $190,293 for the charter school portion. So that left $1.269 million plus the $839,000 that the district identified . as being the amount the budget could contribute to raises. At this point, we have yet to work through the details.

Work was originally put on hold because a major downturn in the economy prevented financing for the hotel. In 2012, the city was awarded a pool of 100 hotel room allocations by the state Cabinet in recognition of its progress in completing a central sewer system. Spottswood Cos. put construction on hold to apply for 25 units it was eventually granted from that pool. That increased the Hyatt from 100 to 125 rooms. I feel like I let people down in regard to when we were going to get started. But things come up [and] the city has been so supportive, Spottswood said. A14-month hotel construction schedule begins on Oct. 1. Spottswood said he hopes to secure a certificate of occupancy by the end of 2014. Hyatt work now beginsFrom Faro Blanco,1ADont forget the Utility BoardWith three candidates, the contested seat for the open Group 3 seat on the Utility Board of Key West seat is the only municipal election this cycle that could potentially go to a Nov. 5 runoff.Current board member Lou Hernandez has decided not to seek another four-year term.The general election is set for Oct. 1 and to win outright, one candidate needs to receive 50 percent plus one vote.The five-member Utility Board sets policy for Keys Energy Services, the public power utility for customers from the south end of the Seven Mile Bridge through Key West.The candidates are:Cheryl Cates, 60, a Key West native, wife of Key West Mayor Craig Cates, mother of two and a Realtor.Timothy Root, 58, moved to Key West in 1986, married with three daughters, and chief estimating officer for Mingo Construction.Vidal, 53, a Key West native and owner of Vidal Photography.Amajor focus of Vidals campaign has been increasing outreach to senior citizens.One thing over and over has been expressed by so many is they dont use the Internet, they cant hear well, and every penny makes a difference on a fixed income, he said. Loud and clear they expressed we all want a userand customer-friendly utility.In public forums, Root has made clear his extensive knowledge of Keys Energys budget and has lauded the quality of the utilitys workforce, regularly the highest paid government employees in the county.When you look around the state or the country after theres a hurricane, our guys are so good they send them everywhere.Root says his experience as a contractor would help Keys Energys near-constant infrastructure maintenance, storm hardening and updating. Cates, a Wesley House Family Services board member, has stressed her long-term commitment to the city and need to keep electricity rates at current levels.I am running for the citizens of Key West, she said. I am running for your grandkids and mine so that future generations can enjoy the same magical island that I remember as a child and still enjoy today. The Utility Board meets twice monthly; members are elected at large and serve four-year terms. Even though Keys Energy provides electricity from the Seven Mile Bridge south, only Key West residents are allowed to run for the board. Group 2 incumbent Peter Batty was automatically reelected when no one filed to run against him.

I am talking about subsidized flood insurance, and legislation passed by Congress last year to reform this program, which call for an end to subsidized rates for property owners whose property is identified by FEMAas flood prone. As a result of several disastrous storms in recent years and the cost and effects of flooding and other natural disasters rising dramatically, the NFIP (national flood insurance program) is broke $24 billion in debt. Congress called for an affordability study of the proposed new rate structure, before implementation, in order to avoid a crisis in real estate, one of the most important segments of our local economy. But this study was never done and in some cases the new rates have been used on new policies, causing just what the study was supposed to prevent, wreaking havoc on the real estate market. I stand with our local group FIRM (Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe) for its efforts to bring fairness to the residents of this county and plan to get involved. Monroe County is a donor county for both windstorm and flood insurance, with over $30 million a year in profits for Citizens Insurance, and close to $10 million for FEMA, which manages the national flood insurance program. I strongly believe that we should ask our leadership to look into a feasibility study for the possibility of our county to self insure. This could have great benefits: it will stabilize the real estate industry, with fair settlements and realistic rates, which will promote sales, and provide a source of revenue along with employment for this county. And if our county government decides that this would be something it wants no part in, like animal control, at least it could bring attention to this matter and a good chance a private insurer will be interested in the millions of dollar in profit while serving the residents of this county. Congress can delay implementation of this and probably will, due to the huge voting bloc in the eastern shore and an election year coming up, but this will not solve our problems here.We need to take a common sense approach to this issue.

Maria Brandvold MarathonFoundations a blessingI would like to say thank you so much for the help and donations from the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation and its board of directors. Thank you so much and God bless you all. Daniel LaTorre Key WestGet off public doleOne day, my neighbor across the canal found a turtledove nesting in one of his plants. Out of kindness, he decided to feed it. Some time later, a few pigeons saw the food and dropped in for a free meal. He and his wife, out of kindness I suppose, fed the turtledove and the pigeons. He passed away a couple years later and his wife continued to feed the pigeons twice a day, every morning and afternoon. The flock grew to nearly 50 pigeons. Several years later, the kind widow passed away. Every day, the pigeons came twice a day but there was no more free food. Eventually, they quit coming for the free food and started to find food on their own. The story about my neighbor is true and it reminds me of our government. Maybe some of our people, who are able bodied and can work, need to start feeding themselves and not feeding off the system Larry Reitz Marathon Family Day is a national initiative that promotes simple acts of parental engagement to help prevent substance use and other risky behaviors in children and teens. While it started out in 2001 as a grassroots effort to inform parents about all the benefits of frequent family dinners, it has been expanded to encourage parents to stay connected to their children at various times throughout the day, such as driving children to and from school and activities and tucking them into bed. This is a positive step, as each of these moments offers an opportunity for parents to communicate with their kids and to really listen to whats on their minds. Connecting with children several times throughout the day also enhances the quality of the time families share around the dinner table. Whether it is mealtime, bedtime, playtime or downtime, what really matters is taking the time to connect with your children on a regular basis. Studies have shown that when parents make a point to stay connected to their children, children are more likely to develop healthy behaviors and succeed in school and less likely to engage in self-destructive behaviors like smoking, drinking, and using drugs. Research has also shown that a close bond between parents and their children is a protective factor against child abuse and neglect. DCF Interim Secretary Esther Jacobo recently acknowledged the positive impact of strong family bonds, saying, Something as simple as sharing a meal can help create a family bond and a sense of belonging for a child who is struggling. In todays fast-paced world we cannot forget how important these moments with our children are for both children and parents. Astrong family unit is powerful prevention. Parents and community leaders alike are encouraged to recognize the important role parental engagement plays in positive child and adolescent development. Parents and caregivers need to set aside time to connect with their children, while business owners and community leaders need to support family-friendly policies that make it easier for parents to succeed at their most important jobs: raising the next generation. Anita Odom Executive Director Prevent Child Abuse Florida Tallahassee, Fl.After a decade in the making, why rush city hall plans?So what really happened last week at the specialcall meeting over fast-tracking Marathon city hall? Well, some key players got to get things off their chest. The city manager came close to calling out one of his bosses. And the architect who complained about the rush, well he sort of wished he hadnt sent the alarming letter that kicked off the brouhaha. In the end, the council on a 4-1 vote, gave the architect an extra 30 days to produce the construction documents that potential bidders will use to work up costs. All in all, its never a bad thing to pause whenever you see things like this rushing down the road pell-mell. After all, the community has waited a dozen years to even begin work on a permanent city hall. And that kind of cautious approach to spending money has served taxpayers well. The pause also gave some others a chance to question the design specifications, especially as it relates to future operating costs for things like air conditioning and lighting. In a guest column published last week in the Keynoter Bob Williams of Sea, Air, Land Technologies, argued for smarter use of solar to shade the building envelope and provide renewable energy that doesnt get increasingly more expensive as fossil fuel prices rise. He chided city fathers for voting for the least expensive design rather than make an investment in sustainability on the Grassy Key fire station, which is nearing completion. And says taxpayers ought to be told the amount we pay in utility bills after the completion of the fire station as compared to the initial cost of a solar PVsystem. Is it too late to incorporate solar in the city hall design? Only the experts can answer that. But, there are certainly some taxpayers whod like that answered before the city council signs off on the final construction plans sometime in October. Agood causeThe front page article in Saturdays Keynoter about Islamorada fishing guide Gary Ellis recognized his contributions to the community and to his profession. And, best of all, the accolades he and his wife Susan deserve for their hard work in fund raising on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series they founded has generated nearly $18 million in donations for medical research. That lifetime achievement will be recognized in February at the International Game Fish Associations Legendary Captains and Crews Awards. Previous winners of the prestigious prize have included Ted Williams, anglers Billy Pate and Stu Apte, and guides Jimmy Albright and Steve Huff. Good company. Agood cause. And a well-deserved induction into the IGFAHall of Fame.

Village penalty threat: $15,000 perdayIslamorada faces hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties that could possibly go into the millions if the company building the villages $98 million wastewater pipeline system continues to be delayed by litigation, lack of permits and easement disputes. Wesley Self, Reynolds Water Islamoradas design, build and operate program manager, sent a letter to Village Manager Ed Koconis earlier this month threatening financial penalties of up to $15,000 per day for every day work is delayed in the Venetian Shores subdivision because of an ongoing lawsuit over ownership of the neighborhoods roads. The Reporter obtained the letter last week. Similar penalties will also be levied for every day a portion of the Middle Plantation Key collection system is delayed because the Florida Department of Transportation has not issued permits, for every day work is delayed on the Middle Plantation Key pump stations because Islamoradas Planning and Building Department has not approved building permits, and for every day easement acquisition on private roads is delayed. The penalties kick in Oct. 1, Self said in the letter. The penalties for the building permit delays on the Middle Plantation Key vacuum system start at $500 per day until Dec. 1, when they too go up to $15,000 daily. Taken together, these fines can go up to more than $420,000 a week if not addressed by the village. RWI has every intention of finishing this project as early as possible and meeting all contractual deadlines, Self wrote in the letter. However, at this time, items described above are beyond our control and are precluding RWI from meeting the village goals. Self responded no comment to a question asking if Reynolds might sue the village if the problems presented in the letter are not resolved to the companys satisfaction.Koconis said in an e-mail responding to questions about the letter that we believe the claim is inaccurate. He did not reply to a follow-up message asking him specifically which claim the village finds inaccurate.In the letter, which is referred to as a Notice of Delay, Self says Wade Trim, the Michigan-based engineering firm hired by the village to supervise the sewer systems construction, was responsible for obtaining all permits for the Middle Plantation Key collection system. We have for months assisted Wade Trim in resolving this issue with FDOT, but RWI is ultimately not responsible for the timeliness of this permit being obtained, Self wrote. Tom Brzezinski, Wade Trims Keys representative, said his company applied for the permit on April 12. Wade Trim found out on Aug. 29 that FDOTaccepted the application and it is now at the district office for final approval, Brzezinski said. We have been told that the timing is usually within a four-week time period once it reaches this stage, so we should be receiving it shortly, he said.Installation of the underground pipe in Venetian Shores was scheduled to begin June 18 and last through Sept. 4. But Reynolds put off work because of an unresolved lawsuit filed in 2010 by resident Jim Bellizzi. Bellizzi argues all roads in the mile marker 86 neighborhood are private.Regarding the easements, Self said several property owners wont sign an agreement with the village because they will not receive full asphalt overlay when Reynolds repaves the roads after putting in pipes. The Village Council made that decision over the summer. Self also said the village has not purchased all the sites Reynolds plans to install vacuum stations, which compound the delay. Reynolds is also waiting for village building permits for several properties designated for pump stations. Self said Reynolds submitted all required documents and site plans for the stations on April 22. But approval could still be months away, according to Self. On Aug. 28, RWI arranged for a meeting to discuss these permits with the Village staff in order to bring attention to, and expedite this matter and was told that it could be another 3-5 months for approvals.Sewer contractor warns Village of delay penaltiesBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADAThe penalties kick in Oct.1,for the building permit delays starting at $500 per day until Dec.1,when they go up to $15,000 daily.
Discount store opens doors in Old TownLiving in paradise has mostly pros and a few pesky cons. The pros are fairly obvious, while many a local will tell you that the cost of living is the biggest drawback to life in the Keys. Everything seems just a bit more pricey here, as Nancy Cavazos found out on her first trip to the grocery store last June. She moved here from Tennessee just over a year ago. Rick Michalski moved to the Keys around the same time and had a similar experience. That led to the idea for Ricks Discount Store, one of Marathons newest businesses at 2315 Overseas Highway in Old Town, site of a former bookstore. I said, I like it here but the grocery prices are ridiculous.That got him to thinking about opening a discount grocery store [and he asked if I] want to help me get it up and running, Cavazos said. Michalski said he was considering a similar concept but with appliance-type goods. I can buy semi [truck] loads of everything else hardware, hammers, stereos, TVs, dishwashers but you have to go through every item. I said, What about a grocery store down here then? he said. Ricks Discount Store opened on July 20 and unlike just about any other business out there, Michalski and Cavazos had no idea what theyd be selling until just before opening. We buy blindly, Cavazos said, explaining how goods are purchased by the truckload or by the pallet. We just got in six pallets and they told us its health and beauty. We know its going to be shampoo, hair color, deodorant and things like that, she said. We just dont know which products were going to get. When we get the food we have no idea until we open the box whats in there. Indeed, there is a little bit of everything on the shelves at Ricks. The main difference between it and a major grocery store is that the packaging is damaged or the product is recently outdated. The food is shelf pulls and outdates, which were allowed to sell but big stores cant or wont. If theres a shelf date it comes off the shelf and theres a company that buys up all of those, and we buy from those warehouses, Cavazos said. The pair bought 40 pallets of product to stock the store prior to opening and it included 180 boxes of candy on sale for just $2 per bag. They also had drink mixes, condiments, cereals, soups, cookies, breakfast bars, cat and dog food, among many other items. Ricks Discount Store accepts credit and debit cards and recently began accepting EBTpayments.

Eyes pressed to binoculars, they scan from the Middle Keys horizon to the highest clouds. An alert goes out: Kettle over Big Bob!The group of volunteers at the Florida Keys Hawkwatch shifts as one, looking to pick out details of distant hawks that follow the Florida Keys on the raptorssouthern migration.No other site in the world has the documented numbers, for a single day and entire season, for peregrine falcons, said Rafael Galvez, coordinator of the Keys Hawkwatch.In the fall, this is the last place we can keep track of raptors and other bird species before they leave North America, Galvez said. This is a bottleneck at the tapering end of the Atlantic migratory flyway.Biologists Kerry Ross and Rachel Smith ran the spotting station at the Curry Hammock State Parks campground on Crawl Key earlier this week. They helped set the Oct. 10, 2012, record for the highest one-day count of peregrine falcons at 651. For the fall migration season, generally running mid-September to mid-November, volunteers logged 3,836 peregrine falcons over the Keys.This years Florida Keys Hawkwatch shirts proclaim, The Peregrine Falcon Migration Capital of the World.Volunteers also log broad-winged hawks (a record 7,236 counted last fall), sharp-shinned hawks, ospreys and more than a dozen other types of raptors. Since making population estimates for wide-ranging bird species is virtually impossible, Ross said, the best system is to identify locations where species pass at specific times. You get trend lines that indicate whether a species is increasing or decreasing, Ross said. You realize the peregrine falcon population seems to be increasing, but something has changed in the biology of the American kestrel that is causing its numbers to decrease.If the main observation site at Curry Hammock was not running, Ross said, you would miss huge numbers of birds.Volunteers travel to serve as citizen scientists, enjoying the chance to spot a wide range of migrating hawks and other birds. Watchers nickname landmarks, referring to specific trees with monikers like Big Bob and Little Bob for quick aerial reference. Akettle refers to a group of raptors, usually gathering to ride the thermal of hot air arising from a land mass higher into the sky. The Keys are the last U.S. spot where the migrations can catch thermals before heading to breeding grounds in the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Colleen and Charles Caudill of Tarpon Springs were casual birders before happening upon Hawkwatch three years ago on a Keys camping trip. Now theyre back for their third migration. Its so fascinating and worthwhile, Colleen said. We started at two weeks. Now were here four weeks. Its addicting, Charles agreed.Florida Keys Hawkwatch is coordinated by the Tropical Audubon Society, Florida Keys Audubon Society and Space Coast Audubon Society, with support from conservation groups.New volunteers are welcome. See the website: Florida keyshawkwatch.wordpress .com ; or email TASpublisher @gmail.com.It took nearly a decade, but Monroe County has finally opened its new $1.96 million Conch Key Fire Station. Firefighters moved in to the new station in June, but the county made it official with a ceremony held between the morning and afternoon sessions of last Tuesdays monthly County Commission meeting in Marathon. Monroe County Fire Rescue welcomed elected officials and many others to the site for a ribbon-cutting and walk through of the new digs. The existing station was upgraded but remains intact; it was essentially two large bays and a shower/restroom area. Asmall attached living quarters area was knocked down and replaced with a new two-story structure. Its made up of three bays and a storage area on the ground floor, with five bunk rooms, a Captains office and a full kitchen on the second floor. There are even four recliners and one flat-screen television for each shifts four firefighters to watch in the evening. Firefighters work 24-hour shifts, followed by 48 hours off. Monroe County Fire Rescue Lieutenant Dave Zalanka offered a tour of the inside of the building and said the firefighters feel much more at home in the new addition. We made do [before]. It didnt affect the responses, but its nice to get a little more creature comforts, he said. The county in 2004 budgeted roughly $2.4 million to upgrade the aging existing station near mile marker 63. It was built by Pedro Falcon Electrical Contractors Inc. and designed by Key West architect William Horn. The project experienced numerous delays, including a much publicized failed collaboration with the city of Marathon on a joint station on Grassy Key just a few miles south down U.S. 1. Marathon is nearing completion on that station, located near mile marker 59 on land adjacent to Jolly Roger Travel Park. Meanwhile, construction is also nearing completion on another new county fire station on Stock Island. Its being built on four lots just off the west end of MacDonald Avenue between 2nd and 3rd streets. Construction is on schedule to be complete by the end of this year, according to county Project Management Director David Hill. The contract amount with Burke Construction Group Inc. is for $3.26 million. Horn also designed the Stock Island station.

The Dolphins forced three turnovers, but had four of their own and received several 15-yard personal fouls it couldnt afford against a solid Patriots squad. The miscues started early, as running back Cooper Chaplin fumbled on the Dolphinsfirst offensive play of the game. Florida Christian scored on a 20yard run on the very next play to make it 7-0 early on. We fumbled the first play of the game, [for the] second game in a row. That just takes a lot out of the kids off the bat, coach Lance Martin said. The Dolphins answered back just two minutes later, forcing a fumble on a Patriots sweep running play that was scooped up by Peter Corcoran and returned 56 yards to tie the game at 7-7. It was 14-7 around 90 seconds later, as Patriots sophomore Nick Tejedor ripped off a 65-yard touchdown run on a third down play. He scored four touchdowns on the night. Marathons Max Elliott intercepted a long Florida Christian pass at the Marathon 7-yard line to close out the first quarter. But Elliott also the teams starting quarterback fumbled while being tackled on the first play of the second quarter. The Patriots recovered and took the ball in for a touchdown and a 21-7 lead with 11:54 remaining in the first half. The biggest momentum killer of the night took place on the Dolphins ensuing drive. The team drove 78 yards to the Patriots2-yard line, thanks in large part to a 59-yard Shemar Fantroy run. But following a firstdown loss of two yards, Chaplin was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct that forced the Dolphins into a second-and-goal from the 19-yard line. Three straight incompletions turned the ball over to the Patriots, who responded with a seven-play, 81-yard touchdown drive.

That seemed like an omen after all, a score of 40 or more for the undefeated Raiders against the winless Conchs did not seem far-fetched, particularly to Gulliver followers. The scoreboard error was quickly rectified, and Key West, which had an upset in mind, answered with an 85-yard drive that tied the game, 7-7. That drive featured a 58-run by quarterback Andrew Freeman (his second run of more than 50 yards in two games) and ended with a 16-yard scoring run by Mehki Sargent. Gulliver fast, towering and ranked fourth in the state in Class 4Aby the Associated Press barely blinked. The Raiders, led by the passing of Jowan Watson and the running of Robert Burns, went 90 yards to surge ahead, 14-7, just before the end of the first quarter. In the second, the Raiders quickly scored again after recovering a Jeffery Anilus fumble. Later, with 1:20 left in the first half, Gavin Mock kicked a 22-yard field goal to cut the lead to 21-10. Then came the turning point. Mitchell Davis took the ensuing kickoff, and with moves worthy of a highlight reel, ran 78 yards for a TD. Along the sidelines, Key West coach Johnny Hughes used to seeing his team allow kickoff returns for touchdowns stood in exasperation. Atwo-point conversion followed, and just like that Gulliver led at halftime. The Conch band tried to cheer up the deflated fans with a tribute to super heroes.

Schoolies mostly right now, but well have larger fish and more consistent catches in the coming weeks as the dolphin make their move south. Out at the humps, theres good action on blackfin tuna in the 8to 12-pound range. The best devices are small, dark-colored lures trolled way back as well as butterfly jigging down deep. Theres been a profusion of sharks out there so, when you hookup, try to get your tuna away from the humps as quickly as possible. Amberjacks aplenty, as well as mutton snapper, are hanging on the wrecks. Use pinfish and small bluerunners for the AJs and pinfish or live ballyhoo for the muttons. On the reef, the yellowtail snapper bite remains very good when the conditions are in your favor. Most fish average 15 to 18 inches, with the best action in Marathon in the 45to 60foot depths. While the mangrove snapper bite is slowly fading on the reef, there are still plenty of muttons in the slicks for those fishing with baits large enough to interest them. We recommend drifting a live ballyhoo on a 1/8to -ounce jighead back in your chum slick.

The announcement was made by athletic director Neda Preston. McLeod, who pronounces her first name SHON-TAY, succeeds Tony McDowell, who coached the team for one season before being named to succeed Anton Lopez as the schools boys basketball coach. McLeod was McDowells assistant last season, when the Conch girls went 5-6. In the games we won, she had a lot of input, McDowell said. Ill continue to help her, and shell help me with the boys. McLeod, 38, a county employee, played for the Conchs in the early s and then at Miami-Dade College. She was my MVP, said former Key West coach Glenwood Lopez. McLeod is the girls basketball teams ninth coach since 2004 McDowell, Tez Waters, Randy Fabal, Pam Smith, Glenn Hayes, Kris Clark, Nadine Johnson and Lopez all preceded her.Played for Conchs in early sBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST96-yard return touchdown was highlightAlow-scoring game erupted into a 32-second frenzy of three touchdowns Friday in the closing minutes of Coral Shores21-13 loss Friday to Westminster Academy in Tavernier. The 3-1 Hurricanes suffered their first loss of the regular season, and now go on the road this week to face Southeastern Football Conference power Florida Christian. Coral Shores held a 7-6 lead midway through the fourth quarter before Westminsters Lions (3-0) finished a long drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass and two-point conversion for a 14-7 edge at 1:55 remaining. On first down with just 1:45 left, Coral Shores called a first-down pass that Westminster intercepted and returned for a 30-yard touchdown. In an instant, the Lions were up, 21-7. The Hurricanesspecialteams squad answered by getting enough blocks to let freshman return flash Shaka Smith slide through and race downfield for a lightning 96yard touchdown at 1:23. Suddenly that seemed plenty of time for a Coral Shores comeback but the Canesonsides kick went out of bounds and Westminster was able to run out the clock. Defenses dominated most of the contest. Coral Shores halted two early Westminster drives with an interception by junior defensive back Daron Govan, and a fumble recovery by the Canes defensive front on the last play of the first quarter.

Anthony Rice caught the Lion back for a touchdownsaving tackle. But Westminster had a first-and-goal from the Cane 9-yard line. Two plays later, it was third-and-goal at the 2. Cane linemen and linebackers stuffed two Westminster runs for no gain, and Coral Shores took over on downs. But the Cane offense struggled to move from its own end. After a Paul Pauchey punt from the end zone, Westminster was on the Coral Shores 39. A35yard pass completion and a quarterback sneak put the Lions up, 6-0. Coral Shores shut down a trick play on the two-point conversion try. Cane halfback George Jacobsen (14 carries for 97 yards) bolted for a 26-yard run into Lion territory but halftime arrived with Coral Shores seeking its first score. The Canesbest offensive drive, a seven-play, 83-yard march, started the third quarter. Sophomore quarterback Nick Frisone threw seven yards to fullback Eddie Dunn, and hit Rice at tight end for 32 yards to the Westminster 39. Dunn bulled for eight yards, and George Jacobsen ran 16 for a first down. Frisone, 3-for-3 on the drive, Rice for a 15-yard touchdown. Paucheys point-after gave the Canes the lead at 7-6. Coral Shores seemed ready to roll after Cane defensive back Brian Cash intercepted and returned it 16 yards to the Westminster 27. Dunn ran for 10 yards but a flag moved the drive back. George Jacobsen followed his line and picked up 22 yards on two carries, to the Lions9. But with third-andgoal at the Westminster 2, two attempts to push over the middle were stopped. The drive ended at the Westminster half-foot line. Coral Shores forced its fourth turnover, when a Cash tackle jarred the ball loose and Logan Rowe recovered at the Hurricane 23 near the end of the third quarter. After the Canes were forced to punt, Westminster used 12 plays to go 65 yards for the Lionssecond touchdown, despite the Canes sack by cornerback Brian Gonzalez, and a pass deflection by Pauchey. For the game, Coral Shores mounted another solid ground game with George Jacobsens 97 yards, along with Henry Jacobsens 45 yards (long gain of 29) and 40 more by Dunn. Westminsters up-tempo offense rushed 31 times for 171 yards, but hit 11 completions for 121 yards.

FKEC TAVERNIER HEADQUARTERS, BOARD ROOMPublished: 09/25/2013 The Keynoter, Marathon, FL 33050 capped off at the 4:43 mark by a 22-yard run down the left sideline to make it 27-7 after a botched extra point attempt. We couldnt get anything going offensively because you get five yards and then get negative the next play on a penalty and it takes us out of our comfort zone, Martin said. Neither team generated much offense early in the second half, but the Patriots added two fourthquarter touchdowns to put the game out of reach. Fantroy led the team with 117 yards rushing on five carries, while Corcoran had 60 yards on seven carries. Chaplin had 20 yards on nine carries, while Elliott was 3-for-11 passing for just 10 yards. Chaplin led the Dolphins defensively with 10 total tackles, while Corcoran had eight and the fumble recovery for a touchdown. Elliott and Trace Goodwin each had interceptions. The Dolphins (2-2) are on the road for their next three games, starting with a Friday visit to Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale at 7 p.m. Penalties hurt Dolphins offenseFrom Dolphins,1Bics out of their trio of runners Anilus, Sargent and Deonte Stemage and drove 98 yards for a TD (scored again by Sargent from seven yards out) to cut the lead to 29-17. Hope was reborn.But when the Conchs got the ball again, a block-inthe-back penalty forced them to punt with about seven minutes left. The Raiders, with Davis carrying time after time, then drove to the Conchs2 yard line and called a time-out. Forty points was unreachable, but Cedric Wright scored anyway on a run with 26.9 seconds left. The extra point made it 3617 and that was the game. Hughes was unhappy that Gulliver (4-0) didnt elect to have its quarterback take a knee and let time expire, and he told the Gulliver coaches that afterward. I guess the score wasnt sexy enough for them, he said Monday, calling Gulliver one of the dream teams that private schools in South Florida build through recruiting.Of his 0-4 Conchs, Hughes said, They competed the best they could compete.Key West is off until Oct. 4 when it plays its first district game against Cardinal Gibbons in Fort Lauderdale.Heroicsfrom running trioFrom Conchs,1B with the usual variety of keeper size yellowtails, mangroves and some very nice size cero mackerel. While the standard assortment of baits will work for the yellowtails, live ballyhoo will do the trick for the mangroves and ceros. In Florida Bay, the most consistent action is on the grass banks and near-shore wrecks where the mangrove bite is excellent. Chunks of fresh-caught ballyhoo work best, although shrimp or chunks of fresh-caught pinfish will work if there is no ballyhoo.The weeks bestCapt.

Whole-wheat crepes are healthy choiceOne of the earliest French culinary imports to make a dent in America was the crepe. As a kid in New York during the s, I remember dining with my family at quite a few creperies. I also remember the black steel crepe pan my folks bought, a token of their desire to make crepes at home every once in a while.This admirable ambition faced two stumbling blocks. First, if the pan wasnt wellseasoned (which required using it a lot and treating it with special care), the crepes stuck to it. Second, conventional wisdom had it that each crepe in a stack of cooked crepes needed to be separated using individual sheets of waxed paper.Happily, I have solved both problems. Though Im not generally a fan of nonstick pans the usual choice for making crepes these days they do work. I prefer stickresistant skillets, which are coated with a safe enamel that works well with crepes. Ive also discovered that you can stack crepes. They dont stick to each other!Still, why bother with crepes? Because, if you have crepes in the freezer and some leftovers in the fridge, you can put an elegant dinner on the table in no time. And, if you make the crepes without sugar, they can be used in sweet or savory preparations. You can stuff them with everything from leftover cooked pork chops, to broccoli and cheddar cheese, to fresh berries and vanilla yogurt. The crepes in this recipe are made not with white flour, but with stone-ground cornmeal and whole-wheat flour. As you cook them, be sure to re-stir the batter every time you reach into the bowl for more. That way the cornmeal will be evenly distributed in every crepe. Any variety of stone fruit will shine in this recipe peaches, plums, cherries or nectarines and in any stage of ripeness. We are poaching them, after all, which transforms even an unripe and tasteless piece of fruit into something tender and deeply flavorful. The magic ingredient in this process is wine, which thanks to its taste and acidity boosts the flavor of any dish.Corn Crepes Stuffed with FruitStart to finish: 1 hour Servings: 4 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 cup 1 percent milk 2 large eggs 1/4 cup cornmeal, preferably stone ground1/2 cup whole-wheat flourPinch table salt 3/4 cup dry white wine 1/3 cup sugar 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise (or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract)6 cups, pitted and cubed fresh summer fruit, such as nectarines, plums and peaches3/4 cup nonfat vanilla yogurtIn a small skillet over low heat, cook the butter until it starts to turn brown and smell nutty. Transfer the butter to a blender, then add the milk, eggs, cornmeal, flour and salt. Blend just until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let rest for 30 minutes.While the batter is resting, in a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the wine, sugar and vanilla bean. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Add the fruit, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.While the fruit is poaching, make the crepes. Mist a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat.Stir the crepe batter and quickly pour 1/4 cup into the skillet, tilting the batter in the pan to make sure that the bottom is completely covered. Cook the crepe until it is lightly browned on the bottom, about 1 minute. Flip, cook for another 30 seconds, then transfer it to a rack to cool. After the fruit has poached for 20 minutes, use a slotted spoon to transfer it to a bowl, making sure to leave most of the cooking liquid in the saucepan.Bring the cooking liquid remaining in the saucepan to a boil and cook it until it is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Transfer the liquid to a small pitcher and return the fruit to the pan. Heat over medium until hot. Mound a bit of the fruit filling down the middle of each of the crepes, then roll up. Arrange the filled crepes, seam side down, on dessert plates, then drizzle them with the reduced sauce and top with 2 tablespoons of the yogurt.
