Joseph Dragojevich, 43, was a district chief with Lake County Emergency Medical Services, near Orlando, and was with the department for 15 years.Dragojevichs supervisor, Deputy Chief Ralph Habermehl, said Dragojevich was an experienced diver and that he knew Dragojevich was on a dive trip in the Keys.Rescue divers from Key Largo Fire Rescue found Dragojevichs body just after 1:30 p.m. and were making efforts to remove it. That was expected to take several hours to complete.Dragojevich was diving the Spiegel Grove scuttled in 2002, with his dive buddy, James Dorminy, 51, Thursday. The men were doing a penetration dive, meaning they were inside the 510-foot former Navy ship. Penetration diving the intentionally sunken ship is considered very dangerous. Three New Jersey divers died penetration diving the Grove in 2007. The two men were on a commercial dive vessel operated by Scuba Do Dive Co. with six other divers Thursday afternoon. Although the dive operators and other divers reportedly did not intend to penetrate the wreck itself, Dragojevich and Dorminy, of Kissimmee, intended to do a penetration dive on their own, without a guide.Dorminy told Sheriffs Office Deputy Tony Code and Dive Team Leader Sgt. Mark Coleman they attached a reel line when they entered so they would be able to find their way out. They exploredFire official, friend did penetration dive, considered most dangerous KEY LARGO Anonymous flier targets SenmartinTwo and a half weeks before Marathon voters go to the polls to vote for City Council candidates, at least one candidate is being targeted by a flier thats found its way into residents mailboxes.Mark Senmartin, whos running along with Pete Worthington and Rich Keating for two open seats, has had past problems with the citys Code Compliance Department for illegally clearing hardwood hammock.That mysterious flier details the issue and the name on the flier is that of a person who apparently doesnt exist, although the address listed on it does. On June 12, the Code Compliance Board found Senmartin guilty of, on March 23, illegally removing protected hardwood hammock from the 1515 Bluefin Drive property where he recently built a house. He was ordered by the Code Compliance Board to pay a $500 fine, $300 administrative fee and plant 10 trees. Senmartin is adamant he never removed native vegetation. He claims he only trimmed not cleared an invasive vine that was growing all over the yard. Regardless, a person calling himself Scott Miller who claims an address of 999 98th St. in Marathon decided to inform the public of the violation. The problem is no one by the name of Scott MillerIt details code problems from the pastBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com MARATHON ELECTION Convicted dog beater to be retriedA Key Largo man convicted of severely beating his Labrador retriever in 2010 for taking a piece of steak off the kitchen counter is scheduled to defend himself against the same felony animal cruelty charge next month.A jury convicted Noah Mitchell in May 2012, but the Third District Court of Appeal ruled July 31 that then-prosecutor Terri Hunnewell erred during closing arguments by telling jurors the burden of proof was on the defense. She said the only way the jury could acquit Mitchell is if the jury thought all the states witnesses lied in open court. Assistant State Attorney Demetrios Efstratiou said this week that his office will re-prosecute Mitchell, and a status hearing on the case is scheduled for Nov. 5. This comes as welcome news to three witnesses who have been urging a new trial ever since the three-judge appellate panel made its decision last summer.I started to cry, said Karin Kass about the moment she heard prosecutors were taking up the case. So, I am so grateful that the [prosecutors] are going to retry Noah so he cannot do it again.Mitchell, 36, could not be reached for comment. He is being represented by the Public Defenders Office, which did not return a phone call for comment. Mitchell pleaded not guilty in the 2012 trial and maintains that the injuries to his dog Bubba resulted from when he accidentally dropped his pet after the dogAppeals court had overturned jurys verdictBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com IN THE COURTS This is Bubba when he was recovering from injuries prosecutors and police say were inflicted by his owner, Noah Mitchell, in 2010.Some sewer costs will be increasingCost of the Cudjoe Regional wastewater system jumped by more than $10 million Wednesday when Monroe County commissioners approved gravity-feed connections for 1,152 Lower Keys homes.Lower Keys residents in the audience applauded Wednes day at the Harvey Government Center in Key West after two separate votes an estimated $7.5 million to change 899 homes in four Big Pine Key subdivisions from low-pressure grinder systems to gravity, and $2.2 million to swap grinders for gravity at 253 homes on Cudjoe Key and Sugarloaf Key. That raises the overall price of the Cudjoe Regional system to around $158 million not including cost of repaving roads damaged by sewer installation, according to initial estimates from the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, the agency overseeing design and construction work.Residents of the Cudjoe Gardens, Cudjoe Shores and Sugarloaf Shores subdivisions have contended for months that dozens of homes in their neighborhoods were slated to receive grinder pumps while nearby houses would get gravity connections, often referred to as the gold standard in sewer systems.We were always promised we would have gravityfeed systems on Sugarloaf and thats what we expect, resident Bill Eardley told commissioners at the Key West meeting.

KEYS WEATHER BEACH ADVISORIES Due to incorrect information provided to the Keynoter, Wednesdays story about the city of Marathons voting canvassing board contained erroneous information. Mayor Mike Cinque was not a member of the board. GETTING IT STRAIGHTCONTACT US NEWS BRIEFS Roadside call boxes are nixedOther than along the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Floridas highways will no longer have the telephone call boxes by the end of January. The state Department of Transportation is removing all but a few of the 2,752 push-button call boxes from along its highways as personal cell phones have reduced the need for the roadside phones. With cell phone use, it was decided to save the department some money, said DOT spokesman John OBrien. The removal, estimated to cost around $200,000, has already started. By not having to maintain the system, including the interconnecting consoles at dispatch offices and base stations, the state is expected to save $1 million a year. The boxes along the Sunshine Skyway Bridge will remain they are connected to a crisis counseling system, and the bridge in the past has been a common place for suicidal people to contemplate jumping.The boxes were installed in the early 1970s, back at a time when those seeking police, medical or automotive aide would have otherwise had to hoof it or hitch a ride to the closest businesses or residence with a pay phone. News Service of Florida owns or rents a property at that address, an eight-unit condominium called Ocean Point Villa. Theres also no registered voter in Marathon named Scott Miller, according to Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Joyce Griffin. Ocean Point board member Wade Stevenson said no one named Scott Miller lives there. He also said he spoke with a woman Thursday attempting to return a stack of the mailers to the supposed Miller. She was up in arms that was sent around and she was going to find out who sent it, he said. Stevenson added that he felt the mailer is pointless because it offers no argument or explanation as to its purpose. Theyre getting the wrong result, he said. It didnt make a whole lot of sense to me; somebody wasted a whole lot of money. Another side effect of the mailer: City Building and Code Compliance Depart ment head Stacy Charlton said City Hall phones are ringing off the hook with complaints from residents who believe they are receiving a fine.The mailer does say paid electioneering communication, albeit in small print on the back of the page.They think Im sending them a fine. My name is on it and the city did not authorize any of this. I dont know who Mr. Miller is, Charlton said. Keating and Worthington said they had nothing to do with the mailer.Its well known that sitting council members are publicly supporting candidates, and a cursory glance at political sign placement around town makes it obvious who behind-the-scenes power brokers are backing. But small-town elections like the Nov. 5 one in next Marathon dont usually take such an openly negative turn.The Senmartin complaint was filed by neighbor David Rasmussen, whose Gulf stream Boulevard property borders Senmartins property. Rasmussen said the issue dates back to 2004, when Senmartin bought the lot.I was two to three months short of my [certificate of occupancy] and that was when Senmartin purchased the property behind me. [He] said he had a permit to tear out trees, Rasmussen said. Rasmussen found that hard to believe since his family owned its lot since he was a child and hed gone through a complicated decade-long process with Monroe County and the city, once it incorporated in 1999, to see his home built. He initially received a permit in 1995 and ultimately surrendered 60 percent of his 160-foot-by-100-foot lot for conservation. Rasmussen says he went to the county biologist hed dealt with, who in turn contacted then-city Biologist Wendy Dyer about Senmartin clearing what Rasmussen estimated to be one-third of the hammock property with no permit. In a June 12 report to Charlton, Planning Director George Garrett refers to Dyer starting a similar file concerning unpermitted land clearing. He wrote that Dyer had required that trees be planted in replacement of those removed, but that she left the city before the case was resolved and it was never referred to Code Compliance. For more on this story, got to www.KeysNet.com .ID remains mysteriousFrom Senmartin, 1AFishing pair bustedA pair of Florida men face two misdemeanor fishing charges for reportedly fishing within Dry Tortugas National Park on Tuesday a day the federal government was still shut down. Jailed were James Mooneyham, 48, of Madiera Beach, and James Redden, 43, of Cape Coral.The FWC says one of the reasons for the poaching venture is that the pair thought no one would be monitoring the Federal Vessel Monitoring System due to the government shutdown.This is what happened, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission: Around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers aboard the FWC patrol boat Peter Gladding (Glen Way, Martin Messier, Raul Pena-Lopez and Lt. Josh Peters) saw a commercial fishing vessel on the Federal Vessel Monitoring System anchored inside the North Ecological Reserve of the Dry Tortugas.The system showed the vessels three-day track line, indicating it left the Madiera Beach area Oct. 11 and headed south toward the North Ecological Reserve. The boat entered the reserve around 1 p.m. Sunday.With other FWC officers relaying the vessels positions via satellite phone, the crew of the Peter Gladding launched from Key West to intercept the boat inside the North Ecological Reserve. It succeeded. The boat was found at the coordinates relayed by satellite phone from the vessel monitoring system. As the 57-foot Peter Gladding approached, Mooneyham and Redden cut the lines of the two fishing rigs hanging off the stern gunwales. Aboard the boat were 1,400 pounds of reef fish. The FWC says the arrested men admitted they started fishing the area on Sunday and caught about 900 pounds of assorted types of grouper by Monday and an additional 400 to 600 pounds of grouper by time the officers boarded their boat at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The bottom line: In around two days and six hours, the duo harvested more than 1,500 pounds of assorted groupers and mutton snappers from the protected waters of the Ecological Reserve.The Gladding escorted the suspects boat back to Key West Tuesday and heres what they FWC were the specifics caught: 177 red grouper totaling 1,380 pounds, one 15pound black grouper, two gag groupers totaling 23 pounds, 21 mutton snappers totaling 135 pounds, and two yellowtail snappers totaling three pounds.The total haul was 1,556 pounds. The entire catch was sold to a local seafood dealer for $5,003.80, with the proceeds being placed in an FWC escrow account.They thought shutdown meant no monitoring CRIME FRONT MOONEYHAM REDDENTegu lizard nabbedThe days of freedom for a South American reptile that made itself a home in a Key Largo neighborhood ended Tuesday evening. A tegu lizard, considered an invasive exotic species in Florida, was captured near the intersection of Fishermans Trail and Ocean Shores Drive, on the oceanside off mile marker 99. The tegu measured more than a yard long but about 60 percent of that was tail, said Jim Duquesnel, a local invasive-species biologist. I just grabbed it behind the neck so he couldnt bite me, said Duquesnel, who previously handled tegus during studies. Tegus usually are firm and powerful, he said. This one was more of a couch potato soft and flabby. The black-and-white tegu first spotted Oct. 10 later was confirmed as escaped pet. The 4.4-pound Key Largo tegu wandered through neighborhoods but apparently did not venture far. Duquesnel, joined by student volunteer Chris Burgess, searched for the reptile and laid out several traps in the area. A reported sighting Monday was less than 100 yards from where it was captured more than 24 hours later, Duquesnel said. Established tegu breeding colonies in south MiamiDade County and other Florida communities make it an invasive species of concern to state biologists. As an omnivore, tegus eat anything from insects to rodents and eggs so they are a threat to our native species, said Carli Segelson of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. They dont belong here. Key Largo resident Heather Seal called the FWC with the Tuesday sighting that led to the reptiles capture. The tegu was turned over to state biologists. Sightings of tegus, monitor lizards and other invasive species should be reported to the toll-free hotline: (888) 483-4681 or online at www.IveGot1.org.

The tegu was captured Tuesday. Fishing guide: HallelujahHallelujah, said Capt. Mike Makowski, owner of Blackfoot Charters in Key Largo. Itll be nice to be able to fish [Everglades National Park] again. That was his, and other Upper Keys fishing guides, reaction to the federal governments reopening of the park and, therefore, the reopening of Florida Bay, prime fishing grounds and within the parks borders. The fishing guides have returned. The park is open. We are back in business. Please come out and visit, said Dan Kimball, superintendent of both Everglades and Dry Tortugas national parks. Although hes happy he can fish in Florida Bay again, and more importantly, bring back paying clients into the bay, Makowski said he is angry at lawmakers for putting peoples livelihoods at stake just to gain political ground. Everglades National Park reopened to visitors Thursday following a 2.5week closure stemming from the federal government shutdown.Entrance stations and visitor centers at Homestead, Shark Valley and Everglades City are now open.Boaters may launch their crafts at the marina at Flamingo, where boat tours and rentals also are available. Bike rentals and tram tours are being conducted at Shark Valley, and airboat tours are now open along Tamiami Trail. Ranger-led tours are expected to resume on Friday. Dry Tortugas, a chain of small islands about 70 miles west of Key West, also opened Thursday. The visitor center and campground at Garden Key are operating, along with seaplane service from Key West. However, park officials said the commercial ferry will not resume service to the islands until Monday. Biscayne National Park, which had been open to fishing during the closure but nothing else, has reopened its Dante Fascell Visitor Center and Museum. However, Elliott Key Harbor and the campground remain closed. Boat tours and rentals are unavailable because the parks sole concessionaire ceased operations before the government shutdown on Oct. 1. The resumption of government services Thursday also brought good news for South Florida hikers and hunters. The Big Cypress National Preserve re-opened, allowing hikers to walk into the remote back country and set up camp and hunters to resume muzzle-loading season, which was interrupted by the closure. Reporter Editor David Goodhue Contributed to this story.Florida Bay reopens after two weeksBy SUSAN COCKINGscocking@MiamiHerald.com FEDERAL SHUTDOWN City wants powerboat races to stay aroundFaced with the possibility that the annual Super Boat World Championship races could be held elsewhere, the Key West City Commission on Wednesday directed city staff to work out a five-year deal with the events producers. The 33rd running of the high-octane boat races is set for Nov. 3 through 10 in waters off the Southern most City. For years, the event put on by Key West native John Carbonell has garnered $120,000 in funding from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.But a reduction in that to $100,000 prompted Carbonell to consider alternative host cities, including Sarasota and Clearwater, which also hosts the Super Boat National Championship.Ive been approached over the last few years by cities that want the world championship race, Carbonell said, and I have to look at that. The main thing thats happening in Key West, its not only the TDC, its all of the businesses. When you go and ask them for a sponsorship or an ad in the program, the answer we get is, Why should we? [The event] is gonna happen anyway. Smith Travel Research, a voluntary reporting group, said that using average hotel occupancy and daily rates for the 2012 races, running Nov. 4-11, Key West lodging revenue was $7,247,069 according to a report provided by the TDC. But Carbonell estimates that, based on hotel occupancy and room rates, ticket sales and things visitors buy such as meals, the draw is 80,000 people generating local revenue of around $30 million. According a permit application filed with the city, last year, Carbonells outfit spent $437,870.69, including the TDC money and other sponsorships, on the 2012 races compared to receiving $440,661.72 in revenue. Thats a profit of $2,791.03. If expenses stay the same and the $20,000 reduction in TDC funding is factored in, the 2014 event would cost Carbonell around $18,000. Its just a bad situation, he continued. My intent has been to try to keep it here. Commissioner Tony Yaniz called the boat races a clean event. We dont have a problem with nudity; we dont have a lot of problems with public drunkenness in contrast with Fantasy Fest. I think we need to reach a hand out, he said, to encourage them to keep coming to Key West and let them know we appreciate those dollars. Commissioner Mark Rossi said he wholeheartedly supports the idea of a five-year agreement to push this race and keep it here in Key West. This is a money generator for everybody here. Bill Spottswood, who sits on the Conch Republic Offshore Powerboat Racing Association board, said he welcomes a detailed analysis of the events local economic impact. I think the numbers would speak for themselves, he said. I dont think theres any question that the dollars spent on the powerboat races, youll see the bang for the buck. As a community, we have to get behind the race, said Mayor Craig Cates, a former powerboat racer himself. He noted the value of international media exposure showcasing our beautiful waters and the town of Key West. Asked about his interest in a five-year deal, Carbonell said: At this juncture, thatd only make it harder, reinforcing the notion, Were gonna get it anyway so why should I give you anything? If I lock myself into a fiveyear deal, its reopening the same thing Im going through right now.Carbonell: Not enough profit in itBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KEY WEST
New canal added for restorationBig Pine Key residents successfully added a Tropical Bay subdivision canal to the list of priority sites in Monroe Countys pilot program for canal restoration. It was pristine 40 years ago with people swimming in it every day, Roger Meyer said of the waterway between Watson Boulevard and Sunset Roads. Now its very murky. You wouldnt even want to put your hand in it. Monroe County commissioners, meeting Wednesday in Key West, agreed to add a $177,000 culvert installation at the canal to the list of test projects.The Tropical Bay canal narrowly missed being the top-ranked test site for culvert installation, but serves 88 homes rather than the seven homes on the Boca Chica Ocean Shores subdivision canal that topped it by a single rating point, residents said.County Mayor George Neugent pointed to the enthusiastic homeowners saying we can get this done, and commissioners added the site to the $5 million program testing various technologies to improve canal water quality. The most expensive fix for a canal in the test program is $1.5 million to backfill a 40-foot deep canal, between Bunting and Pigeon Drives in Key Largos Sexton Cove canal. Anything below 8 feet is a dead zone, project manager Rhonda Haag said.Removal of existing weeds with installation of a barrier gate will cost about $1.4 million targeting three Doctors Arm canals on Big Pine. The Sands Road-Hibiscus Drive canal in Big Pines Whispering Pines was approved for a $300,000 pump to improve water circulation.Florida International University will administer a $300,000 federal grant to assess changes in water quality in the pilot project. All projects are contingent upon approvals from adjoining property owners. In other business Wednesday:County legislative-affairs director Lisa Tennyson reported on efforts to curtail big rate hikes in the National Flood Insurance Program. About 12,000 Monroe County owners will be affected. Skyrocketing rates are going make selling [Florida Keys] homes impossible, she said. It limits the pool of buyers to those who can afford the increased premium. Public Works Director Kevin Wilson described an emergency inspection and trimming of Australian pine trees at a Key West playground near Higgs Beach after a large falling branch nearly struck a child. If the trees are not healthy, we cannot have them on the playground, Wilson said.Neugent asked county staff to seek a way to provide Lower Keys residents with a permitting office somewhere between the Seven Mile Bridge and Cow Key Channel so permit seekers do not have to fight Key West traffic to reach the Public Works office.88 homes are are adjacent to the water Saturday, October 19, 2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com AT: POSTCARD INN MM 84The event is being held at Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle, MM 84 O/S.

Dorminy said he was in the lead and Dragojevich was reeling in the line behind him. He said when he last saw his friend, Dragojevich signaled with his dive light that he was OK. Dorminy looked back again and had lost sight of him; the line was slack. He swam back and found the line tangled, but did not find Dragojevich. After searching for as long as he could, he had to surface because he was running out of air. As soon as Dorminy reported what happened, the crew on the dive vessel called the U.S. Coast Guard to report they had a missing diver. The Coast Guard and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded and did a search for Dragojevich, but he was not found until the next day. Dragojevich had children with his ex-wife and was in a relationship with a girlfriend, according to Habermehl. The Monroe County Medical Examiners Office will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. His equipment is also being recovered and will be examined for any information that could help detectives piece together what may have happened.Dive victim left childrenFrom Grove, 1A bit him on the hand. Bubba suffered a collapsed lung, a damaged larynx and six broken ribs. The case may not have even made the news in other counties, but in the pet-centric Keys, it was one of the biggest stories of 2010. Mitchell said Bubba ran out of his Pimlico Lane house after snatching a piece of meat off the counter. Bubba was hiding behind appliances outside, and Mitchell said he had to grab his dog to get him back inside the house. But Gary Pitterman and Curt Murphy were with Mitchell that night after helping him move into his new house. They have an entirely different account about what happened to Bubba. The three men were drinking beers after dinner and the moving was done for the day. As they relaxed, Bubba took the steak and ran out of the house, Murphy and Pitterman said. This infuriated Mitchell, who Murphy and Pitterman said savagely beat Bubba.Pitterman said he urged Mitchell to call a veterinarian, but he instead drove Murphy and Pitterman, who were roommates, home. Thats when Pitterman called his friend Kass. She called police after hearing the extent of the animals injuries.At the May 2012 trial, Pitterman was the only eyewitness called to testify. Hunnewell thought he was enough. She also called to the stand three Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies who responded to the scene and two veterinarians who treated the then-8month-old dog. One vet said Bubba was so badly injured, she thought he could have been thrown out of a twostory window. On May 23, 2012, jurors took six hours to find Mitchell guilty. Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia sentenced him to nine months in county jail and five years probation. But right after sentencing, Mitchell paid a $10,000 appellate bond, meaning his punishment has been on hold ever since. For Kass, the prosecutors decision to retry the case may mean justice for Bubba, who survived the beating and has since been adopted by a family who wants to remain anonymous. Noah never showed any signs of remorse, and was going to let that dog suffer all night if I did not call the police, Kass said. I have been here for 19 years and have dealt with Monroe County justice for a long time. I feel this is one of the better things I have seen Monroe County do.He never showed remorseFrom Bubba, 1Aand placed deeper underground. Once in place, maintenance is minimal, which gravity-system supporters say will lower long-term costs.Low-pressure grinder systems require electric pumps (supplied by the county) and cost less to install, but often require a homeowner to pay more for high-capacity power connections and ongoing electric charges. The county handles periodic pump maintenance. Plans developed by the FKAA in 2009 identified which Cudjoe Regional areas would receive gravity or grinders, based on a decision tree of technical criteria and cost. Mayor George Neugent scheduled the CudjoeSugarloaf issue Wednesday, saying he was persuaded that Sugarloaf and Cudjoe residents in densely populated subdivisions have a reasonable expectation of gravity and deserve the $2.2 million upgrade. Commissioner Danny Kolhage immediately tossed Big Pine Key into the mix.I dont see how we can treat Big Pine Key differently than Sugarloaf and Cudjoe ... in similar situations with the same type of configuration, Kolhage said. If you want to come up with $10 million [overall], Im with you.After lengthy discussion, commissioners voted to pass the Cudjoe-Sugarloaf areas, 41, then passed the pricier Big Pine change on a 3-2 vote.The Big Pine change affects homes in the Doctors Arm, Eden Pines, Big Pine North and Big Pine South subdivisions. Commissioner Sylvia Murphy voted against both, saying the county should follow the advice of its professional engineers and not change plans after the fact to suit other people.Commissioner David Rice agreed with the SugarloafCudjoe change that has been debated at several meetings, but voted against the morecostly Big Pine switch without more study.Im not going to spend $7 million when I walked in here not knowing about it, Rice said. I want to know what poison Im drinking. Neugent urged the board to table the Big Pine change, calling it imprudent without more details. When the item came to vote, he joined Heather Carruthers and Kolhage in supporting it.FKAA Executive Director Kirk Zuelch said Thursday that design changes can be completed soon, but contractors may seek additional time. Were still hopeful we can meet the December 2015 deadline imposed by the state to finish sewer work.A significant portion of the money for the countys wastewater systems, demanded by the state to improve nearshore water quality, comes from a special infrastructure sales tax approved by referendum. Higher costs for wastewater could force changes in the countys plan for other capital improvements.Lower Keys plans changeFrom Sewers, 1AContract talks resume againAfter 22 bargaining sessions and still no 2013-14 teacher contract, Monroe County School District Superintendent Mark Porter will meet representatives of the United Teachers of Monroe with the guidance of a federal mediator. The meeting is set for Monday, running from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the districts headquarters on Trumbo Point in Key West. Porter said the mediator, Gilbert Escudero, is provided at no cost by the Federal Bureau of Mediation and Conciliation Services, an independent U.S. government support agency. Porter noted that although scheduled, the session was in limbo given the 16-day federal government shutdown resolved Thursday. The most significant open issue, according to Porter, is compensation and evaluation. Florida legislation dictates a shift in teacher compensation to a model that pegs performance and raises in large part to student scores on standardized tests, controversial in their own right. UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said she would present evaluation language on Monday and sees the larger unresolved issue as employee raises and furlough days. What started as a pitch from Gov. Rick Scott to give Florida teachers $2,500 pay raises has, for the Monroe County School District, turned into a mechanism to eliminate the controversial seven-day teacher furlough program that has been in effect for two years. Hummell-Gorman said UTMs position is that is not an appropriate use of the raise pool. She said that money is intended for raises for teachers, principals and assistant principals. To say that were going to use that money to restore furlough days is not the intent of that allocation. The total cost of the furlough program, instituted when the district was forced to cut $13 million in operating expenses over a twoyear period, is about $1.7 million. 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 money through collective bargaining with local teacher unions. For Monroe County, the total raise pool comes out to $1.4 million. Because Monroe is a property rich county, 90 percent of schools funding is raised locally, meaning the state kicks in only $100,000 of the $1.4 million total and the remaining $1.3 comes from property taxes.Mediator brought in to facilitateBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS COUNTY COMMISSION By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

The garbage hauler serving the village of Islamorada says it could save the county millions of dollars a year in solid-waste disposal charges.Bruce Williams, who manages Advanced Disposals (formerly Veolia ES Solid Waste Southeast Inc.) Keys operations, hoped to convince county commissioners at their Key West meeting Wednesday to open solid-waste provider contracts to competitive bidding. Commissioners discussed the item, but took no action.Advance charges the village $377 a year per home or business compared to what he says is an average of $404 Waste Management, Keys Sanitary Service, Marathon Garbage Service Inc. and Ocean Reef Club charge the county. Put it out to bid. Thats all I want, Williams said Tuesday. Rates are going up, and if they dont go out to bid, theyre going to continue to go up. But Greg Sullivan, head of Waste Management in the Keys, has a problem with Williams math. He said the $404 figure is what the county charges customers on their tax bills, but the companies actually charge the county about $210 a year. The higher figure is for things such as tipping fees at a Broward County landfill. The problem is, [Williams] kind of puts these figures out there, and theyre half a story. Tell the whole story, Sullivan said.Williams also faces resistance to his idea from several county commissioners, including the Upper Keys representative, Commissioner Sylvia Murphy. Williams says Murphy refuses to meet with him to discuss the issue.She cares more about a business than her constituents, and I dont like it even one little bit, Williams said.Murphy doesnt deny she wont talk about the issue with Williams. She says thats because she is satisfied with the level of service Keys Sanitary provides Key Largo, and she has her doubts about Advanced Disposal. Over the years, [Advanced Disposal] has been many, many, many different companies, with different hats and different names, and Mr. Williams has been the head of all of them, Murphy said. They dont offer near as good service as Keys Sanitary, or Marathon Garbage for that matter. Commissioners voted last month to exempt garbage companies from the competitive bidding process because they provide similar services as utilities. Commissioner Heather Carruthers asked her four colleagues to reconsider that vote at Wednesdays meeting at the Harvey Government Center. But her motion failed on a 4-1 vote. Not satisfied with the current state of negotiations with existing garbage franchises, commissioners agreed to give staff another 30 days to reach an agreement. The county could eventually issue a request for proposals from other companies. This comes as the four companies continue to negotiate their 10-year contracts, which together come to about $15 million. The garbage companies want the Consumer Price Index to be factored in more during the 10-year contract term. The CPI is a cost of living index used to measure changes in retail prices of goods and services. Sullivan says it is necessary for the survival of the haulers businesses to adjust the CPI seven out of the 10 years.Nobody can predict the cost of doing business 10 years down the road, he said.County Administrator Roman Gastesi said his staff must consider three guiding principles when negotiating a 10-year contract extension: Maintenance of levels of service, increasing recycling and collection carts, and maintenance of current prices.No. 3 has many components, and CPI is one of them, Gastesi said.

NoI read a letter in your Oct. 2 issue. Init, the writer claims many things thatlead me to believe hes deathly afraidof our current government.Not only that, he claims that Manyare frightened they will be targeted asenemies of this regime and denied theaccess they require to earn a living. Hesomehow rambles all his fears into aball he blames on the press, claiming itis are failing at safeguarding our rights.Apparently he believes he and mostAmericans are victims now, and endan-gered. Personally, I dont know anyonewith these fears and I suspect there are notmany others that feel the writers fears.I suggest two things for people whofeel this way. First, stay indoors at alltimes. Close your windows and doors,and consider putting your hurricaneshutters up, as they may help youdefend yourself against the bad peo-ple in the government. Do not go out-doors and enjoy your life here in theKeys, because the boogeyman is defi-nitely gonna get you.Second, keep listening to right-wingradio pundits like Rush Limbaugh andSean Hannity and watching FOXNews. These media outlets are not partof our press in a meaningful way.Theyre biased and theyre not afraid tosay it out loud. These folks will feedyou baloney all day, most of which youalready believe. This way your deepestfears are constantly confirmed andreaffirmed, as you wish.I hope the writer ignores my adviceabove and goes out into the sunshine tosee that most people are not living infear and that many of us are truly andhonestly informed through multipleviewpoints expressed in todaysdiverse press.Beau BennettTavernierVote them all outI am appalled at the completeincompetence of our current politiciansand their total disregard for the plightof the average American.I suggest a new organization: FAIL.It stands for Fire All Incumbent Losers.Join FAIL and in the next election, donot vote for anyone responsible for thisoutrage. Maybe losing their paychecks,health benefits, chauffeured-drivenlimos and gym membership will pushthem to do their job.Marie BoudreauMarathonAs negotiations for new dealscontinue, there needs to beways to get new deals doneLets talk trash.The Monroe County Commission on Wednesdaydecided to give a 30-day extension for negotiationsover trash hauling contracts that affect residentsvirtually Keyswide.Because the county is looking at 10-year con-tracts vs. five-year deals, these talks have addedgravitas with millions of dollars at stake.Four companies currently provide servicesunder the countys purview: Waste Management,Marathon Garbage, Keys Sanitation in Key Largoand Ocean Reef.Another company, Advanced Disposal (formerlyVeolia ES Solid Waste Southeast Inc.), handlestrash hauling for Islamorada and is not part of thenegotiations, although the companys Keys man-ager wants to get a seat at the table. Key West hasits own contract with Waste Management.County negotiators have focused on rates andways to improve recycling efforts; the haulerswant some guarantees that cost-of-living adjust-ments will be factored in for higher fees over thenext decade.As part of the negotiations, haulers say they willinvest in larger recycling carts, which should helpincrease the volume recycled in the Keys.Who hasnt seen the tiny recycling bins thatwere used in Key West overflowing with emptybottles after a party weekend?In March, Key West approved spending$631,000 to buy 13,000 wheeled 65-gallon recy-cling carts that replace the small 18-gallon greenbins. Those larger carts are now in service and thecity is counting on residents to improve their dis-mal recycling rate, which has hovered around 7percent (for all solid waste collected) for the pastfive years.With the current trash hauling contracts inplace, county residents pay the most at $404 ayear. Contrast that with Key West residents, whopay $319 a year and Islamorada at $377 a year.The sticking point in the countys negotiationsis applying a cost-of-living index on future rates.Haulers are asking for Consumer Price Indexadjustments in seven of the 10 years under the newcontract, while the county has offered adjustmentsin five of the next 10 years.With $14 million combined in the four con-tracts, you can understand why the county wants tonegotiate the best possible deal for constituentsnow. And with the carrot of a 10-year contract,haulers ought to be willing to sharpen their pen-cils.After all, if these contract negotiations dontresult in a good deal for consumers, the county canput the contracts out to bid and see who else wantsto offer services and beat the existing rates. Woodland was inspiringI lost my brother, Kevin Woodland,a long-time Marathon resident, to can-cer last month. Since Kevin passed, Iwould say this last week has been thehardest for me.The last two months, one withKevin and the second adjusting to andlearning the things in his life that weremost, important kept me very focuseduntil the most beautiful, memorable,touching, loving and perfect weekendIve ever experienced happened.To a place I dreaded moving to 43years ago, a desolate, unknown littlestring of islands and bridges, hasbecome the home I will cherish for-ever Marathon.While most of the Woodland kidsmoved to other towns in Florida, Kevinand twin brother Robin stayed, built abusiness, and involved themselves inmaking the community a better place tolive while instilling some of their valuesin order to offer the kids a rich under-standing of family and community.Kevins dream will continue to liveon, and I pray that many of the kidswhose lives he touched, whether they beadults now or still young, will carry onthe unforgettable spirit of this fine placewe call paradise. No one can understandthe extent of this paradises far-reachinglove unless theyve lived here and beentouched by it, which brings me back towhy I am writing this.Kevin graduated from MarathonHigh School in 1973. Class membersscrambled to put together their 40threunion to coincide with a celebrationof life for Kevin. I was quickly remind-ed how special it was growing up inthis very small community, whereeveryone knows your business, butwho never forgets you.This small community of scatteredlifelong friends came together andplanned the most heartfelt tribute to mybrother and his contributions to thistown. What a highlight to have yourhigh school principal, 95 years old todate, speak so wittily and lovingly ofone of her many kids she mentored overthe decades. Thank you to Mrs. KayGradick; she is amazing to all of us.The Woodland family extends oursincere appreciation to the Schmittfamily (Brian, Dee Dee and Bruce),Mike Puto, Becky and Bobby Coletti,Michele Mark Miller and the Class of1973 for bringing us the true meaningof what a Marathon family is all aboutin our time of grief.A scholarship fund has been set upin Kevins honor through his favoriteorganization, the Marathon AlumniAthletic Club Inc., formed to raisefunds to support kids sports pro-grams. Donations may be mailed toMAACI (please reference KevinWoodland Athletic Scholarship Fund)and mail to 700 89th St. oceanside,Marathon, FL 33050.A favorite quote of Kevins wasThe hand cannot execute what themind has not experienced. This smalltown offered Kevin infinite experi-ences, and his hands were never idle.God bless and thank you for alwayswelcoming us back, Marathon.Sue W. MaconNaplesGreed wins outPart of the reason I love the Keys isto get away from the mainland and thecorporate greedy types that chase thealmighty dollar over anything else,including compassion and humanity.Im writing this, as my wife is nolonger employed due to complicationswith her pregnancy. She has been inand out twice a week of doctors andspecialists due to some serious compli-cations with her pregnancy. The babyhas a 50/50 chance of living and mighthave a birth defect. My wife is anemicand lost 20 pounds, and the medicalexpenses are pouring in. We simplycannot afford to continue living here.I went to my apartment manager andexplained the situation. Generally, incases of hardship, the apartment manag-er will at least work with you and com-promise. Not always, of course, but usu-ally. Given these extreme circum-stances, I was sure this apartment com-plex would work with me on this.She couldnt have cared less aboutthe hardships were facing. She evenadmitted she had people on the waitlistbut, of course, rules are rules.So to recap on their financials: Nointerruption in cash flow would occur,and they would get even more by col-lecting the full amount ($3,000) of mebreaking the lease? I cant even fathomthis sort of business practice and howcold, corporate and heartless it is. Iguess they can get away with it becauseof their location but they should be allfired and put out of business.John MalyKey LargoHow to survive Fantasy FestKey West is readying forthe racy 10-day Fantasy Fest,beginning Sunday and culmi-nating with a 7 p.m. paradedown Duval Street on Oct.26, and theres a lot to knowto have a fun and legal experience.With tens of thousands ofpeople expected for it including 60,000 to 70,000for the parade there willlikely be increased trafficcongestion leading up to theSaturday finale.On Oct. 25, theMasquerade March takes tworoutes, leaving the CityCemetery at 5 p.m. and arriv-ing on Duval Street around7:30. City spokeswomanAlyson Crean says thestreets are not closed alongthese routes so motorists canexpect delays and are advisedto take alternate routes.The same day, Duval clos-es between Front and Southstreets beginning at noon. OnOct. 26 at 10 a.m., the closureextends from between Frontto United Street.Streets will stay closeduntil the Police Departmentdecides it is safe to reopenthem, Crean said.Things start pit this Sundaywith a Zombie Bike Ride,expected to draw some 4,000undead participants. It leavesfrom WeCycle on U.S. 1,Stock Island, then rolls downSouth Roosevelt Boulevard toBertha Street, then ontoAtlantic Boulevard toReynolds, then down Duvalbeginning on the south end.There are no hard street clo-sures but there will be policeaccompaniment and conges-tion is to be expected along theroute and ancillary streets.Regular city bus servicewill continue as usual until4:59 p.m. Oct. 26, prior to theparade, at which time all cityand Lower Keys buses con-vert into free shuttles spon-sored by Captain Morgan.The shuttles will operateuntil 2 a.m. Oct. 27 with thelast trip from Key West toMarathon leaving at 12:30a.m. and the last city buspickups at 1:45 a.m.The designated pickupand drop off point is FaustosFood Palace at Fleming andBahama streets half a blockoff Duval Street. Real-timebus route and timing infor-mation is available atwww.kwtransit.com.Parking is available at citylots at Caroline and Grinnell,Caroline and William orAngela and Simonton for $2per hour. The citys MallorySquare lot or the Westin KeyWest Resort and Marinagarage on Front Street bothcost $4 per hour.Despite the widely heldperception about Fantasy Fest,public nudity is prohibited.Women cant expose theirbreasts, although breasts cov-ered with body paint areallowed but only in the so-called fantasy zone. That arearuns the length of DuvalStreet and covers all crossstreets between Whiteheadand Simonton streets.Body paint must beapplied in an enclosed area,out of public view and whileit should go without saying,public sex acts are off limits.As outrageous and elabo-rate costumes are the norm,its also important to remem-ber that while toy weapons arenot explicitly banned, yourebetter off not using them.But if your costume sim-ply must have one, make sureits clearly a fake. Lawenforcement will be watch-ing for anything resembling aweapon. Laser pointers areanother no-go, as are back-packs and coolers.In an effort to dovetailwith a new citywide residen-tial recycling pickup pro-gram, the city will place 200blue recycling carts in thebusiest areas of Old Town,complementing the 200 con-tainers normally deployed.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KEY WEST No contaminationfound at RowellsSupporters of buying theRowells Marina property fora waterfront park on KeyLargo got news, both goodand disquieting, at Wednes -days meeting of the MonroeCounty Commission.Commissioners voted, 4-1, to sign a $5 million pur-chase agreement for theeight-acre site on FloridaBay, but still can back awayfrom the deal before Jan. 31.County staff reportedthat one primary concern possible environmental con-tamination from previoususe as a commercial marina does not appear to be aproblem.A Phase 1 environmen-tal assessment found nopresent significant or recog-nizable environmental con-cerns observed on the site,relayed County AdministratorRoman Gastesi.An old underground fueltank lies buried at the prop-erty but state regulatoryofficials confirm recordsshowing the tank was law-fully cleaned and filled withconcrete for a proper aban-donment about two decadesago, Gastesi said.Finding few problems,the environmental consult-ant did not recommend con-ducting a more extensivePhase 2 assessment, whichincludes tests for soil con-tamination.Commissioners are hold-ing off on final approval ofthe Rowells purchase untilGastesi delivers a businessplan showing that spacerental for community eventsand other income can fundimprovements and operation.

Crystal Cruises and Costa Cruises were at the bottom of the list, each with F grades. Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruise ships make port calls in Key West. According to the report, cruise ships were responsible for disposing of more than a billion gallons of sewage into the ocean last year.Friends of the Earth graded 16 cruise lines using data from the Environmental Protection Agency and information from the cruise operators.The group looked at whether cruise lines had installed advanced sewage and wastewater treatment systems; whether they had retrofitted ships to plug in to electrical grids in port; rather than burn fuel while docked; and whether ships had violated water pollution standards in Alaska.Cruise operators criticized the methodology, complaining that the organization ignored other practices that benefit the environment. Marcie Keever, oceans and vessels program director for Friends of the Earth, said some cruise lines showed improvement while others faltered in the report, the fourth issued by the group. It really depends on the line, she said. Last year was even more stagnant than this year.For example, she said, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity both excelled in their advanced wastewater treatment systems. But she pointed out that those same cruise lines were not embracing shore power in port, which earned Royal Caribbean an F and Celebrity a D in air pollution reduction.Overall, Celebrity had a C+ and Royal Caribbean got a C; both are owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises.Rich Pruitt, associate vice president of safety and environmental stewardship for Royal Caribbean Cruises, said the report does not indicate that shore power is only available in limited ports and fails to give the company credit for investments in energy efficiency and other technology to reduce emissions.Theres all these other factors that you have to include before you put a grade on somebody, he said.A spokeswoman for Crystal Cruises called the reports criteria and research random, arbitrary and incomplete and provided a list of environmentally friendly practices.Roger Frizzell, a spokes man for Carnival Corp., said the company is making progress. Nearly half of the companys fleet, or 48 ships, have advanced wastewater treatment plants already, and the company is working to increase its use of shore power. Still, in the sewage treatment category, Carnival Cruise Lines got an F. The poor grades attributed to a couple of our cruise lines were based completely on the grading system that they have not yet installed advanced waste water systems installed or shore-based power systems, hardly a realistic grading system given the complexity of a cruise lines sustainability systems and requirements, he wrote in an e-mail. In a statement, a spokes man for the Cruise Lines International Association said the report does a disservice to consumers that may wish to obtain credible information on the responsible environmental practices of cruise lines.Disney earns top rating from groupBy HANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.com
Crane Point Museum & Nature Center is turning back the clock to help usher the Marathon attraction into a new and, hopefully, prosperous era. Crane Points nonprofit board of directors has hired former Director Chuck Olson to head up an aggressive fundraising campaign with the idea of improving and expanding the hammocks appearance and educational offerings. Board President Jeff Smith said Olsons capital campaign will be separate from day-to-day operations at Crane Point. In particular, plans for a much-publicized zip-line course remain intact. It doesnt mean anything for the fate of the zip line. We continue to move forward with that, but were moving on a parallel path for a capital campaign, Smith said. Smith pointed out that the whole point of the attraction is to establish a source of revenue whereby Crane Point could improve the rest of its infrastructure and programs. The board wasnt anticipating the project getting bogged down by a vocal group of opponents who are exhausting every opportunity to put a stop to the zip line. They claim it interferes with native species habitat and isnt a proper use for the conservation-native zoned property. We think now is a good time to see if we can have more success in a capital campaign. If its wildly successful, great, but the hope doesnt replace our plan for income generation, Smith said. Olson worked for the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust, which owns Crane Point, from 1986 through 1992. It started out saving small slivers of land up and down the Keys before going all in on the hammock in 1990. As with ambitious efforts like that, you can only dive head first in. We built the museums and started the marine science program, Olson said. We were in Time, Newsweek, Wall Street Journal and I was on The Today Show. Olson was a Nature Conservancy director in Ohio at the time and considering another post in San Francisco when former Land Trust board member J. Allison DeFoor II gave him a call. He introduced me to this thing and sold me on this grand vision, Olson said. I came home and told my wife about this great opportunity in the Florida Keys. It had 117 members and no money in the bank. Eighteen months later, DeFoor said Crane Point had 5,000 members and a $2 million budget. DeFoor is a former Keys sheriff and judge, and Everglades czar for thenGov. Jeb Bush. Its that type of success Crane Point is hoping to repeat and that led it to reach out to DeFoor, Olson and Realtor Brian Schmitt, another founding board member.

Story, 4B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Conchs take county meetIt was a spectacular afternoon to swing 9-irons, but it was cross-country that ruled Tuesday at the Key West Golf Club, site of the annual Monroe County Champion ships involving runners from host Key West High, Coral Shores and Marathon.The girls went off first, proceeding along the challenging 3.1-mile course designed by the late Robert Price, who started cross-country at KWHS in the 1990s.As expected, the Conch senior Tristin Milliken, holder of the Key West girls record for the course (21 minutes, 59 seconds), surged to the lead. There she was in green Edens, a lean figure in red shorts, her hair flying, her breaths audible, beneath an unforgiving sun next to a reflective lake whose shoreline held baby ducks. Drive your knees, a fan shouted. Milliken chugged up and down the five mounds (the Price gauntlet) at the top of the home stretch. She crossed the finish line, where a tiny clock registered 22:34, and headed straight for a shady area where the other runners soon gathered to recover and talk about how hot it was.My goal was just to finish in first, Milliken said before her mother came over to kiss her. One of the spectators, Key West City Commissioner Tony Yaniz, said, Shes amazing, Ive known her since she was a baby.The next four finishers were all Conchs Jane Welzien (23:41), Emily Good (24:16), Catherine Richardson (24:43) and Sahara Graft (25:05). It was desert-like, Graft said. My hair came out and it felt like 10 pounds was on me.The first Coral Shores finisher was Dorian Gibson, who was sixth in 26:00. She was followed by Chloe StokesTheyre followed by Hurricanes, then Marathon in Key West PREP CROSS COUNTRY By DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Lady Dolphins sweep KeysMarathon High School got the best of its Monroe County rivals this week on the volleyball court, defeating Key West and Coral Shores high schools in a pair of home matches this week. The Dolphins beat the Conchs in straight sets on Tuesday (25-17, 25-15 and 25-15) before taking down the Hurricanes in a four-set match on Thursday (25-27, 25-22, 25-15 and 25-20). The wins helped Marathon finish its regular season on a high note, as the girls won eight of their last nine matches on the way to a 14-8 record. The Dolphins made quick work on Tuesday of a Key West team thats struggled all season. The Conchs fell to 1-20 after the loss. Thursday was a much tougher match against a solid, but depleted, Coral Shores squad. The Canes were missing three starters due to injury and fielded just seven players in the match. Its been a while and I think it was extra special because our junior varsity beat their junior varsity as well, and they werent missing anyone. We just had a good night, Dolphins coach Carol Miller said.The Dolphins appeared to have the first set in hand on Thursday, up 21-17 and on serve. But the Canes won the next seven points to take a 2421 lead before kills by Regan Durkin and Sydney Konrath tied the score at 24-24.A short serve that hit theVball team beats both Canes, ConchsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com PREP VOLLEYBALL Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathons Savannah Rodamer puts a kill attempt between Coral Shores High School blockers Skylar De Moss (left) and Pookie Del Pino during the Dolphins four-set victory over the Canes in Marathon on Thursday. Conchs outswim DolphinsIt was past sunset when Marathon Highs Malorie Woodbury emerged from the Florida Keys Community College pool after swimming the first leg of the girls 400yard freestyle relay, the nextto-last event of Wednesdays meet with Key West at Florida Keys Community College.The bulbs of the scoreboard reflected bright orange in the pale water.It had been a big afternoon/evening for Woodbury, one of many seniors from both teams honored before the meet. She had won the 50yard freestyle in split-second fashion over the Conchs Kimberlee Reed; she had won the 100 free, and was on the winning 200 free relay team.Now, she watched as Jacqueline Arnett, Abby Grace and Summer King, her teammates in the 400 free relay, swam to victory. Woodbury, who has been swimming in the Stock Island pool since she was 6, plans to attend Florida Gulf Coast University, though she will limit her swimming to club teams. She said she will miss the camaraderie of Marathon High swimming. Its been a family thing, she said. We may not be the best, but we sure have spirit.Her efforts were not enough for the Dolphin girls, who lost, 108-62. The Key West teams boys completed the sweep with a 123-35 victory.Posting firsts for the Conch girls were Story Magidson (200 free and 500 free), Morgan Bentley (200 individual medley and 100 butterfly), Savana Hardin (100 backstroke) and senior AliBut Woodbury stands out for the DolphinsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor PREP SWIMMING Conch golfers make the regionalThe Key West High School golf team extended its season Tuesday by finishing third in the seven-team District 24-2A tournament at the Grand Palms Hotel and Golf Club in Pembroke Pines.The Conchs, who struggled during the regular season, shot 359, behind winner Archbishop McCarthy (297) and Gulliver Prep (322). They beat out La Salle which had only three players for third placeA team had to finish in the top three to advance to the regional tournament. Key West was led by senior Evan DeRoches fourover 75. DeRoche, who is trying to return to the state meet after failing to qualify last season, trailed only the McCarthy duo of Anthony Wells (71) and Daniel Gonzalez-Quevedo (73). Evan was focused, said coach John Moeller, but he had two bogies. Chase Renner, who shot 89, was next for the Conchs, followed by Patrick Roesser (96) and Scott Brown (99). Key West will tee off at 8 a.m. Monday in the Region 8-2A tourney at Largo Mar Country Club in Plantation in Broward County, and the Conchs are a long shot to finish in the top three and going on to the state event. But DeRoches could go on as an individual by finishing in the top three among non-qualifying teams. Hes got a shot if he plays up to his potential, Moeller said.

early lead and never really found their rhythm in the first half. Midway through the second half, Key West let in another goal after a scrum in front of the net for a deflating 2-0 deficit.Key West striker Adam Swiecicki stepped up his game with several breakaways, finally converting near the end of the game for an unassisted goal and the 2-1 final.Key West 2, Falcons 0In a much faster-paced, flowing game, midfielders Spencer Hamilton, Patrick Matysik, Alistair Fergus and Brian Coward scooped up balls and kept pressure on the Falcons defense throughout the first half. Swiecicki and Danny Kearney consistently taunted the Falcons goalkeeper, with Kearney converting a breakaway to give Key West the early 1-0 lead.Kearney assisted Swiecicki for an insurance goal in the second half while Key West goalkeeper Christian Lee earned the shutout, easily handling the Falcons few shots on goal.Key West 1, Bernabeu 0In Sunday mornings mustwin game, Key West faced Bernabeu, undefeated the day before and which had already clinched a playoff berth.Key West stuck to its game plan by dominating possession and winning 50/50 balls, but the game remained scoreless in the first half. They kept the pressure on Bernabeus goalkeeper, who was forced to bat away incoming balls, setting up multiple corner kicks in the second half. Finally in the 47th minute, Noah Cutchins perfectly placed corner was headed in by Jack Behmke, who had narrowly missed a few earlier opportunities. The 1-0 win earned Key West a rematch with Bernabeu for the U-16 boys championship game.Key West 2, Bernabeu 1In the championship final, the two teams had clearly seen enough of each other, as tempers flared and yellow cards were issued to both teams early in the game. Bernabeu was determined not to be defeated again, but Key West stayed cool under pressure, with well-executed passing and marking up of opponents on both sides of the field. Kearney once again got the games first goal on a through ball from Cutchin in the 15th minute. The gods watching over Kendall Soccer Park responded with a torrential downpour in the second half that caused players and balls to slip haphazardly on the synthetic turf field. Key West continued to pressure and once again scored when Cutchin took the ball up the flank and passed to Swiecicki for a left-footed tap-in goal.Bernabeu scored its only goal against Key West midway through the second half, edging closer with a 2-1 score.The rain-soaked referees became persnickety late in the game, teaming together on some questionable calls, including back-to-back fouls on Lee for holding the ball outside the box. Lee fielded Bernabeus first direct kick attempt and batted away the second, which nearly went in to hold on to the 2-1 lead. Key West defenders Behmke, Kevin Coward, and Van Wilson made sure Bernabeu didnt convert any late-game opportunities, and Key West prevailed with a 21 final to win the title.

No excuses the Dolphins outworked us the rest of the match and that is why they were victorious in the end, Canes coach Andy Thiery said. Marathons Jordan Roney started the third set off with a 5-0 serving run, while Katie Popejoy followed with a nine-point run that helped the Dolphins to a 15-4 lead. In the fourth set, the Dolphins built a 21-13 lead before Coral Shores closed the gap to 23-20. Marathon held on for the final two points and a 25-20 win to end the match. Ellie Leopold led the Canes with 16 kills and four blocks, while Amberlyn Casas had five kills and six blocks and Pookie Del Pino had two kills and two blocks. Popejoy had seven service aces for the Dolphins and Roney had five. Durkin led the team with eight kills while Sydney Konrath had seven and Popejoy six. Johnnisha Qualls had six blocks in the match. Miller also complimented Amanda Bruland, Brandi Spalten and Savannah Rodamer for their play on the back line Thursday.

(26:13), Marissa Bogue (29:04), Kyia Herlth (33:17) and Ivy Summers (35:15).Only one female runner Rosalio Parrado (10th, 28:44) represented Marathon. The others had commitments, said coach Jim Murphy. The boys race was close until the Conchs top runner, Everett Wagner, broke away from teammate Jerry Burgess (both knew it would happen) to win in 18:44. After Burgess (19:13) came Key Wests Leif Cisneros, who was third in 19:21 11 seconds ahead of Coral Shores Steven Chadwick (19:32). Fifth was the Conchs Bobby Black (20:01), followed by teammate Steven Hobson (20:29.) Another Conch runner, J.T. Keane (14th, 22:10), had to be carried to the shade, where he sprawled on his back as a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer attended to him. My whole body was vibrating, Keane said, before getting to his feet. The whole time I was thinking that I just had to finish. Following Chadwick for the Hurricanes was Rex Zimmerman (20:52), Pablo Gonzalez (21:24), Kenny Stokes (22:44) and Hunter Anderson (24:28). Marathons top runners were Anthony Garcia (20:34), Joel Zalia (22:59), Truman Berger (23:07) and Aydan Child and Jack Hill, who both came in at 24:59.The Conch boys and girls teams easily won the meet; Coral Shores finished second. A nice thing happened after the meet when, in a little ceremony on the clubhouse veranda before the awards presentations, the course was named for the inspirational Price, who died this year.He was Key West Highs first cross-country coach and a fixture at the golf course during early-morning meets long after he stepped down. He loved classic rock and he loved to run.Conchs outrun Keys rivalsFrom Running, 1BPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Tristin Milliken strides toward victory during Tuesdays cross-country meet at the Key West Golf Club.

Now that the humidity has finally decreased, its time to start thinking about moving into your cooler wardrobe.Embracing fall trends can be tricky when you live in a tropical climate. Fabulous outer coats, turtlenecks and tall boots just dont really work when its still 70 degrees. But there are many trends that will easily help you make the transition from your summer wardrobe into fall.Thankfully, many of the trends that were big this past spring are still relevant for fall. Emerald remains a big color and is actually more wearable with other fall tones instead of your typical bright hues and pastels for spring.When trying to figure out how to work a trend into your wardrobe, its always best to start with small pieces such as accessories and to make sure you will wear it into future seasons. Review the list of fall trends below and then add a few key pieces to your wardrobe to update your look.Emerald greenEach year, Pantone declares a color of the year and this years shade is the elegant and lush emerald green. This rich shade was harder to implement into a spring and summer wardrobe but is perfect for fall, so now is the time to embrace it.Pair it with neutrals such as black, winter white, tan, gray or metallics, or color block your look by wearing this radiant hue with other jewel tones such as garnet, amethyst and sapphire. I also love this shade paired with polka dots or black and white stripes to keep it from looking too wintery in our warm climate. Add heels or a big necklace in this vibrant hue to create a dramatic ensemble.Classic printsThis spring, we saw a lot of floral and kaleidoscope patterns but for fall its all about bringing back the classics.Hounds tooth, plaid and pinstripes are big this season and have been around forever, making it very affordable. You can find these prints everywhere, from secondhand stores to your favorite upscale boutique. Leopard print is another print making a big statement on the runway. Although the classic brown and black leopard print will always be in style, try adding a little fun into your wardrobe with a blue or black and white version. Remember that a little print goes a long way. A head-to-toe ensemble in print is never recommended. Instead, try wearing one of these classic patterns in a lightweight blazer that could be paired with skinny jeans for the weekend or over a skirt for the office.Layers, texturesLayering is one of the best ways to create a dynamic ensemble but can be difficult to do with our warm weather. Transition a summer dress into fall by layering on a lightweight scarf and a fitted jacket. Layering can also be a great tool to add a pop of color into your outfit; just be sure not to go overboard on too many colors and patterns. Stick to the rule of three by wearing no more than three colors.To add texture to an ensemble, try mixing in a new texture you dont wear as often. Leather is really big this fall and is lightweight enough for the cooler months in the Keys. Instead of a traditional leather jacket in black, opt for a new look by trying leather in a rich burgundy or emerald green. Go bold with a leather skirt or try a more subdued approach to adding texture by opting for a shirt or dress with leather trim. When in doubt, opt for black and white. Its classic and never goes out of style. Leah Maki is a fashionobsessed style blogger. More of her fashion advice can be found on her blog, Leahs FabulousFinds.com.

The funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and will be used to construct the Crane Point Eco Adventure Canopy Tour Program, a zip line attraction to be located at Crane Point in the City of Marathon.This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4) of Executive Order 11988 for FloodplainManagement, and by Section 2(b) of Executive Order 11990 for the Protection ofWetlands, and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for theHUD action that is within and/or affects a floodplain or wetland.Construction will be undertaken in the 100-year floodplain. The City of Marathon and Crane Point are interested in alternatives and public perceptions of possible adverse impacts that could result from the project as well as potential mitigation measures. The activities to occur in the floodplain include the construction of towers to support the canopy zip line tour, renovation of exhibit buildings, administrative offices, historic structures, and related improvements.Crane Point is an existing property with improvements, including a visitors center, parking lot, administrative offices, and historic structures. The proposed project will renovate existing structures including the parking facilities, historic properties (Adderly and Crane houses). The most significant portion of the project will be the construction of a zip line tour. This will involve the construction of approximately 5 towers and 3 landings. These quantities are subject to change based on final design. No new residential development is funded as part of this project. The reason for undertaking the project is to promote environmental education in Crane Point and to provide an additional source of revenue to operate the property.Written comments must be received by Debbie Londonat the City of Marathon, 9805 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida33050on or before Monday,November 4, 2013, at 5 pm.Additional information may be obtained by contacting: Debrah London, Community Services Coordinator, City of Marathon, at firstname.lastname@example.org (305) 289 4103, or Calvin Knowles, Senior Consultant, Meridian/GSG, at email@example.com (727) 224-8444, or Loretta Geotis, Crane Point, Loretta@cranepoint.net (305) 743-3900. Mike Cinque, Mayor Environmental Certifying Official Published Keynoter 10-19-13 Tortugas trip: Buy one, get oneThe Yankee Freedom III resumes regular ferry service from Key West to Fort Jefferson and Dry Tortugas National Park 70 west of Key West on Monday, following the reopening of the federal government. And to celebrate, the Yankee Freedom III is offering to all residents of Monroe County a buy one, get one free admission from Monday through Oct. 27. The government shutdown affected all of us and in appreciation of the support we received from the community, were offering something special in return, said Terry Strickland, general manager. We are thrilled to resume service and hope that the residents of Monroe County will take advantage of the savings to join us for an adventure to this truly remarkable national park. The ferry is U.S. Coast Guard-certified for 250 passengers, but the National Park Service limits the number of passengers to 150. Reservations must be made by calling 294-7009 and those heading out must present local ID at check-in. Dry Tortugas National Park was established in 1992 and encompasses 100 square miles of islands and ocean. The central feature of the Dry Tortugas is Fort Jefferson, one of the massive brick coastal fortifications built by the U.S. in the mid-1800s. The park also contains abundant natural resources above and below the water, making it famous for both its snorkeling and bird watching. The Yankee Freedom III departs daily from the Key West Ferry Terminal. The excursion includes transportation to the fort aboard the 139-foot catamaran, breakfast, lunch, snorkeling gear and a tour of the fort.Ferry marks reopening of the government ON THE WATER This is the Yankee Freedom III docked at Fort Jefferson. Plenty of PVC pipe, industrial cutters, soldering irons and a few pool noodles are not the typical equipment of an eighth-grade honors science class, but thats whats on the lab tables at Sigsbee Charter School in Key West.Twenty-two middle-school students not only built their own underwater remotely operated vehicles, but will use them all year to carry out their studies.The project is an effort to bring more science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) into classrooms nationwide. Each vehicle includes a 1foot-by-1-foot-by-1-foot plastic tube cage weighing fewer five pounds framed around three battery-powered propeller-driving motors. A long tether of wires connects the motors to a remote control. The 13and 14-year-old students took a week to assemble each one. This is closely related to an experimental design as a scientist, teacher Alena Liepzig said. Using the ROVs will help them understand engineering and make them better problem solvers here and in life.All at no cost to the school.A $100,000 grant from the Office of Naval Research to the Navy League provided the funding. The Navy League Key West Council was the only chapter in the country to distribute the program to four local schools, including Sigsbee, to actually use in their classroom science programs and not as an extracurricular or enrichment program.We hope it will encourage more science appreciation, especially underwater engineering, said John Parce of the Navy League Key West Council.A company called Seaperch provided the materials and teacher training.The students recently tested their remote vehicles at Florida Keys Community Colleges pool, adjusting buoyancy, controlling the propulsion and steering, and ending the trial with a full lap-length race. Up next, chemistry, where the robots will collect water samples students will analyze and test in various experiments. And a physics lesson is not far behind.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday, October 19, 2013 Time Warp makes a return to Nelson stageThe Rocky Horror Show, a stage adaptation (and not the later movie version), comes to the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center Oct. 31-Nov. 1. Debra Ginsberg, president of Ginsberg Productions, has staged shows in the past at Coral Shores High School, at the Grossinger Theater in Lauderhill and East Ridge Retirement Village in Miami. This will be her second go-round with Rocky at the Nelson stage, having brought Rocky to Key Largo back in 2011. The cast then included a mix of professional actors and local amateurs from Key Largo and Miami. Oscar Munoz plays Dr. Frank N Furter, Andreina Kasper plays Janet (the newly bethrothed ingnue), Michael Vadnal plays Brad (Janets bethothed). Others in the Key Largo productions cast include: Butch Falgiatore, Debbie Hess, Tory Ruiz-Legg, Alexander Rodriguez, Burgess Warren, Steve Gair, Trish Elliott, Debra Ginsberg, Darlene Moore, Serena Salva, Stephanie Sandoval, Briana Shore, MaryAnn Warren and Jacqui Allen. The story line is pretty familiar to a generation that grew up on the 1975 film version, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, starring Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry and Meat Loaf. The movie bombed when first released, but midnight showings began cropping up across the country. Movie goers dressed up as characters in the faux horror flick, yelled out lines during long pauses in the dialogue, and even threw things at the screen. But, Key Largo theater goers will be seeing the stage version, written by Richard OBrien, which made its London debut in 1973. This rad-bad musical tells the story of a newlyengaged couple getting caught in a storm, arriving at the home of a mad scientist, whos unveiling his new creation, a musclebound innocent named Rocky Horror. Tim Curry played the lead role as Dr. Frank N Furter, Susan Sarandon was the bethrothed ingnue, and Meat Loaf, well suffice it to say you had to see the movie. Tickets cost $25, but theres a dinner-theater package available for $65, in partnership with Sundowners Waterfront Dining at mile marker 104. Curtain time is 8 p.m. all three nights at the Nelson Cultural Center. Tickets can be purchased online at www.ginsbergproductions.c om or by calling 866-5357994.Rocky Horror show Oct. 31 Nov. 1 a madcap musicalTHEATERNail-biting thriller best film in yearsCaptain Phillips, rated PG-13, 134 min. Now playing nationwide The top box office film over the past few weeks has been Gravity, a tense visual epic about a disaster in space. Viewers spend the entire movie worrying whether Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will survive their ordeal. Its a nervewracking film that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. But the tension in that film cant hold a candle to Captain Phillips, a nailbiting thriller based on the true story of the hijacking of a U.S. flagged ship off the coast of Somalia. Starring Tom Hanks, in a tour-de-force performance, and directed by Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Ultimatum), the story starts slowly, with Phillips driving to the airport to fly to Oman to take over as captain of the container ship Maersk Alabama. He seems just like any other commuter heading off to work. But Greengrass and screenwriter Billy Ray (Harts War, The Hunger Games) quickly ramp up the tension and it becomes almost unbearable. One hundred and fortyfive miles off the African coast, four armed pirates chase down and take control of the cargo ship, the first successful act of piracy on an American ship since the early 19th century. The U.S. Navy eventually shows up to begin negotiating with the pirates. Even though viewers may remember how the real story ended in 2009, director Greengrass grabs viewers by the throat and doesnt let go until the very end of the film. And when the end does arrive, a noticeable sigh of relief can be heard throughout the theater. The story focuses on the two captains, Hanks Phillips and the Somali pirate, Muse, played brilliantly by a real Somali immigrant, newcomer Barkhad Abdi. (Side note: Do an internet search of Abdi and read the fascinating story of his journey from his childhood in Somalia to starring in a blockbuster Hollywood film.) Both captains answer to bossesand as each man follows his respective orders, their paths cross, with devastating results. Greengrass started as a documentary filmmaker and his technique is perfectly suited to this film. Actors normally dont have to hit any specific marks and ad-libbing dialog is encouraged. In fact, one of the most effective lines in the film Look at me. Im the captain now was ad-libbed by Abdi. The documentary style of Captain Phillips makes viewers feel that they are onboard the ship as the crew tries to fend off the hijackers and then hide in the nooks and crannies of the giant ship. (Viewers may be surprised at the ease with which a huge ocean-going ship can be boarded.) Once aboard, the pirates storm the bridge and take command, holding the captain and three of the crew at gunpoint. The tension on the bridge when the pirates take control is real. Abdi and his fellow Somalis had not met Hanks before that moment and were very nervous to meet the star. Greengrass effectively uses that edginess to heighten the tension in the scene. In interviews, Hanks has said that the Somalis were so convincing that he was actually scared. The supporting cast, epecially the three other pirates, is excellent. Because viewers may not remember all the reallife specifics and some of the supporting cast are unknowns, its a guessing game to see if anyone is killed during the standoff. And look for the female Navy medic at the end. The medic is Danielle Albert, an actual Navy corpsman aboard the USS Truxtun, who was pressed into the Hollywood spotlight on the directors whim. The final scenes were made up by Greengrass as they were filming on the ship. The director asked Albert what she would do in a real situation and the next thing she knew, Albert found herself face-to-face with a dazed and bloodied Tom Hanks. He comes around the corner, hes shaking, and he sits right here on the table and its all filmed here, she says. I did exactly what I would do in a real situation and my military training kicked in, and I stepped out of the spotlight and started treating a patient. And Tom Hanks acted like a real patient and thats what triggered it. Greengrass was happy with the results of that lastminute casting decision and audiences will be too. In fact, most viewers will be happy with the entire film. It is one of the most gripping films to hit theaters in recent years. Nothing against the box office behemoth Gravity, but viewers will leave Captain Phillips entertained, exhausted and exhilarated. What more can you ask from a movie?FILM Craig Wanous KeysFilm Veteran actor Tom Hanks has a tour-de-forceperformance in Captain Phillips.

Art tackles genetics and KWsubcultureExhibits open at The Studios through Nov. 15Wendy DesChene and Jeff Schmuki have a thing about plants. Visitors to The Studios of Key West will catch a glimpse of the highly speculative plant world t hey create during P lantbot Genetics, a show t hat runs through Nov. 15. The artists have created a traveling exhibit that w arns about the dangers in fooling with Mother N ature. Some of the species t hey put on display make n oise, gyrate and behave in ways you dont expect from plants. As reported by Cadence Mandybura for a show held last year at N ew Gallery, they are part of M onsantra . the ersatz company, PlantBot Genetics, that is behind m any of the species. One ersatz plant in t heir repertoire, labeled B ritneyatacum Performada, reportedly belts Britney Spears at the touch of a button. Theres actually a more serious side to their spoofs of geneticallyengineered plants. The more I read about our food production, the more called to action I was, Schmuki told reporter George Mattingly in an April, 2012 interview. The artist-turned plant exhibitionist says there needs to be more transparency in our food production. Viewers can judge for themselves at Space 2 of this Plantbot Genetics show. Also, at The Studios, photographer Alexandra Dietz presents her retrospective, Changing Tides in Key West in the main hall. The photo exhibit covers a five-month tour of the Southernmost Citys distinct subcultures and introduces some amazing portraits and settings. To quote from the show organizers: (Dietz) turns her honest but compassionate lens toward each in turn, while examining the ways they inform one another: Conchs, Cubans, fishermen, drug-runners, tourists, snowbirds and drag queens. The artist herself adds this commentary on her exhibit, which remains at The Studios through Nov. 15: I share apersonal history with Key West. And the images I have captured are a loving tribute to a place thatwas an integral part of my own coming-of-age.For more information, visit www.tskw.comKEY WESTRegal Cinemas Searstown, Key West, 294-0000 All shows that start before 4 p.m. play only on weekends.
