Story, 8A WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013 VOLUME 60, NO. 93 25 CENTS Reitzel case back in courtSix years after she says she made then-schools Super intendent Randy Acevedo aware of financial irregularities in the Monroe County School District, a former employee is heading back to court to get her job back. Former Finance Director Katherine Reitzel and former Credit Card Administrator Linda Walker have both sued the district. They claim they were forced to resign or face firing in 2009 when the Acevedo theft scandal Acevedos wife Monique spent more than $400,000 in district money on herself was unfolding.Walker was a 35-year employee only 10 months from retirement, while Reitzel had worked there since 2002. On Nov. 25, Michael Burke, an outside attorney for the School Board, will ask Circuit Court Judge Tegan Slaton to toss Reitzels lawsuit. A similar effort to get Walkers lawsuit, now combined with Reitzels, has been rejected. The pair claims protection under the Florida Whistleblower Act. In November 2007, Walker alerted Reitzel to irregularities with the districts credit card program, specifically, the spending of Monique, then a district administrator. Reitzel took that concern to Randy Acevedo, who did nothing.Then in 2009, Reitzel refused to sign a letter to state auditors saying the financial information the district was providing the auditors for the 2008-09 school year was complete and not fraudulent. Randy Acevedo signed the letter.That year, then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed him from office, and at trial he was convicted of three counts of official misconduct. He got probation. While the finance scandal was unraveling in September 2009, Acevedos appointed successor, Joseph Burke, gave Reitzel and Walker the choice of being fired or retiring. They chose the latter and in February 2010, they sued the School District. Burke said the Nov. 25 hearing applies to Reitzels lawsuit although for trial purposes the two complaints have been combined.

New Biscayne plan gets a cold receptionA new plan for managing Biscayne National Park waters north of the Florida Keys may create a new type of marineprotected area that limits recreational fishing and bans commercial fishing. The proposal unveiled Friday by the National Park Service angered Upper Keys commercial fishermen as too extreme, and disappointed the National Parks Conservation Association as inadequate. Its crazy, said Ernie Piton, president of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. Theyre closing so many areas, where are people going to go? Theyll be on top of each other. The parks new recommended plan is called Alternative 6, which proposes to establish a Special Recreation Zone covering 14,679 acres, or about 23 square miles. The zone would encompass the parks waters from Hawk Channel into the Atlantic, with the southern border east of Old Rhodes Key and running to Elliot Key. All commercial fishing, except using lampara nets for ballyhoo, would be banned. Recreational fishing would be limited to special-zone permit holders, decided by lottery. Plans suggest issuing 430 permits to private anglers and 70 to sportfishing guides. This new concept aims to accomplish the same objectives as the original preferred alternative while allowing limited fishing opportunities, Biscayne Superintendent Brian Carlstrom said in a prepared statement. Our partner agencies believe that providing some access, while prohibiting certain activities that are most damaging to the coral reef system, will enable us to simultaneously achieve our visitor experience and resource protection goals, Carlstrom said.It contains permit lottery for fishermenKEYS FISHERIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comDOT comes calling this weekKeys residents get the chance Thursday to find out what state officials have planned for Keys roads in the coming years.Thats when District 6 (South Florida) Department of Transportation staff will unveil their annual five-year work plan for Monroe County, at a hearing set for 6 to 8 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center, mile marker 48.5 bayside.

NelsonPublic hearing on its work plan is Thursday nightBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comTRANSPORTATIONHIV disclosure law sparks big court battleIn Florida, and almost three dozen other states, its a crime to have intercourse without disclosing a sexually transmitted disease.So prosecutors thought they had a solid case when they charged a Manatee County woman who failed to tell her female partner she was HIVpositive. A Tampa appeals court, however, threw out the case, ruling that sexual intercourse could take place only between a man and a woman.But last month, a South Florida appeals court issued a conflicting opinion, upholding charges against a Key West man whom police had accused of lying about being HIV-positive to his male partner. The ruling more broadly defined intercourse, finding that it did not require opposite genders or specific body parts. The Florida Supreme Court is likely to end up resolving the clashing opinions, which are being closely monitored by gay-rights advocates. On the one hand, they support legal rulings that convey equal status to same-sex relations but they also oppose the HIV disclosure law, arguing that the long-controversial statute stigmatizes people infected with the virus.

Dr. Prout spent much of his childhood in Dallas, TX, where his father was Vice President of the General Electric Corpotially facing a disciplinary action and chose to retire, voiding protection under the Whistleblower Act. In his Sept. 27 motion, Burke wrote that Reitzel did not file a signed, written complaint on her own initiative ... [and] did not suffer an adverse employment action.Reitzel was the star witness in the states case against Randy Acevedo, who was convicted of covering up the theft and fraud committed by his wife.Monique was convicted of six felonies and is serving eight years in state prison. Shes slated for release in 2017. Testimony in Randy Acevedos trial indicated that Reitzel first brought him evidence of his wifes improper spending in October 2007, but not again until February 2009. The theft went on unchecked in the interim.Reitzel attorney Michael Barnes didnt return a call for comment.But her lawsuit says Reitzels actions are entitled to protection under the Florida Whistle-Blowers Act. Reitzels disclosure to agency administrators constituted a whistle blowing. Reitzels unlawful termination occurred within a week. The [School District] terminated Reitzel from employment ... in retaliation of her disclosures as a whistle-blower. Reitzel and Walker want their jobs back with back pay, and damages greater than $15,000.Reitzel: I was forced to retireFrom Reitzel, 1ABiscayne staff has been working to update its 1983 management plan for more than two years. Analysts with the National Parks Conservation Association said the group prefers an earlier proposal that would create a notake marine reserve covering about 16 square miles. Without a marine reserve at Biscayne, the coral reefs will continue to deteriorate and the park will fail to achieve its management objectives, jeopardizing park resources and the visitor experience, said Caroline McLaughlin, the groups Biscayne specialist. No-take areas in the Dry Tortugas have created significant increases in the size and abundance of once-overfished species after just five years, McLaughlin said. Many recreational fishermen and commercial fishermen blasted the earlier Biscayne marine-reserve plan. The Coastal Conservation Associa tion of Florida, a sport fishing advocacy group, will stake out its stand at a Saturday board meeting, board member Michael Kennedy said Tuesday.We are reviewing the special recreation areas and the other regulations that affect fishermen, Kennedy said. We have some concerns that we will address with the Park Service.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission board, which strongly opposed the original no-take area as harming recreational fishing off Miami-Dade County, will get a presentation on the new plan at the FWCs Thursday meeting in Weston.This application of the quota-hunt concept [for the special-use area] would be a new and novel approach to management of ecologically important marine habitats, like the portions of Floridas reef tract inside the park, says an FWC staff report.At least a dozen and possibly two dozen Keys lobster trappers use waters that would close under Alternative 6, Piton said. If that area closes, many Miami fishermen almost certainly would head south to Keys waters, he said. This would affect so many jobs, here and in Miami, Piton said. I havent seen anything to justify it. Public comment on the Biscayne plan will be open through Feb. 20. Biscayne National Parks hearings on the proposal include a Dec. 11 session in Key Largo.Early plan: Marine reserveFrom Plan, 1Aian, said Norm Kent, a South Florida activist and criminaldefense lawyer who publishes the South Florida Gay News.Scott Schoettes, HIV Project director for the gay-rights group Lambda Legal, said its hard to see a silver lining in a disclosure law he called unjust.Its nice to have courts recognize relations between two men, he said. But it would be nice to recognize granting us our rights in an affirmative sense, not just when it comes to criminalizing our sex lives.In Florida, it is a thirddegree felony punishable by up to five years in prison for a person who knows he or she is HIV-positive to have sex with someone else without informing them. The law came into effect as part of the Control of Sexually Transmissible Disease Act that Florida lawmakers passed in 1986 as fears about HIV, which can lead to AIDS, were growing nationwide.The disclosure law also covers other sexually transmitted diseases, such as herpes, gonorrhea and chlamydia but HIV is the only one that carries a felony charge. Thirtyfour U.S. states and territories have passed similar laws.Detractors are widespread. In February, President Obamas Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS issued a resolution calling criminalization of HIV an unjust, bad public health policy that is fueling the epidemic rather than reducing it.The council pushed for states to repeal or revise the laws.Critics say the laws ignore scientific data that show HIV is rarely transmitted through oral sex or digital penetration, and that the risk is often considerably low even in cases of vaginal or anal sex. All of these laws are just based upon misconceptions about how easy it is to transmit HIV. Its not that easy, said Schoettes, a lawyer who believes the laws should be altered to include proving intent and that a victim actually contracted the virus. The law came under scrutiny in 2010, when the Second District Court of Appeal in Tampa took up the case of an HIV-positive Manatee County woman charged with having oral and digital-penetration sex with another woman. The three-judge panel threw out the charge, ruling sexual intercourse is the penetration of the female sex organ with the male sex organ. The reason: Florida lawmakers never specifically defined what constitutes sexual intercourse. So the judges, in a unanimous ruling, fell back on another Florida law one governing incest to define the meaning of the term. Prosecutors in Tampa chose not to appeal the decision. But the issue was not settled.The Key West caseFast-forward to 2011, when Charles Marlin of Key West met Gary Debaun. According to court records, Marlin had heard rumors of Debaun being HIV-positive, so he asked for proof he was uninfected before they had sex. Debaun, 62, produced a lab report showing that he was HIV-negative, prosecutors say.The two moved in together and began having sex. But then Marlin found HIV-related material on Debauns computer, according to an arrest warrant.Marlin showed the lab report to the doctors office, court records show, where the staff told him it had been forged. Debaun later wrote an apology letter. And with detectives recording the conversation, Marlin called Debaun, who admitted he misled his partner, according to the warrant.Monroe County prosecutors charged Debaun under the HIV-disclosure law.In October 2011, Debauns defense attorney asked Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Wayne Miller to dismiss the case, citing the Tampa ruling involving the two women. He did.This time, prosecutors appealed.On Oct. 30, the Third District Court of Appeal, which covers Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, overturned Millers decision. Judges said the point of the law was to curb the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, especially when many are spread by sexual contact other than vaginal penetration by a penis.It makes no sense to interpret the only act prohibited sexual intercourse as including only penetration of the vagina by the penis, Judge Linda Ann Wells wrote in the 2-1 decision. The judges pointedly said that the HIV law applies to other behavior, including that between two men.The felony charge was reinstated against Debaun. We fully intend on prosecuting Mr. Debaun for his criminal acts, said Monroe Assistant State Attorney Colleen Dunne. The Miami-Monroe appellate court was not the only one to broaden the definition.In May, as judges in South Florida were considering the Debaun case, an appellate court in Daytona Beach weighed in with a ruling in a third case, finding in a unanimous decision that the plain and ordinary meaning of sexual intercourse includes vaginal, anal and oral intercourse between persons, regardless of their gender.Debauns lawyer, Alan Eckstein, said no decision has been made on whether to appeal.Ohio State University law professor Marc Spindelman, who recently wrote an article on gay-rights legal issues for the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law, called the HIV-disclosure law no mere symbolic legal issue. The case involves intensely real and practical consequences for peoples lives, Spindelman said. Practical legal consequences hinge on whether lesbians and gay men and their relations and activities wanted or not receive equal or unequal treatment under the law.Keys man being prosecutedFrom HIV, 1AAnalysts with the National Parks Conservation Association said the group prefers an earlier proposal that would create a no-take marine reserve covering about 16 square miles.

A public hunt for Burmese pythons in the Everglades wont be repeated next year, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman said Monday. Instead, the state is beefing up established programs that train licensed hunters and people who regularly work in areas known to contain pythons to kill or report exotic snakes. Certainly our work is not done with pythons, FWC spokes woman Carli Segelson said.The state-sponsored Python Challenge attracted roughly 1,600 hunters in January and February and made headlines worldwide. It netted 68 of the invasive snakes, the longest measuring more than 14 feet, but officials said the number of pythons caught wasnt as important as the data collected during the hunt. University of Florida researchers still are analyzing that data.Segelson said the hunt met the commissions primary goal of raising awareness about Floridas problem with pythons and invasive species, and there will not be another python hunt next year.Its unknown how many pythons live in Floridas Everglades. Researchers say the large snakes are among the invasive species that are eating native wildlife at an alarming rate. State and federal wildlife officials are exploring other ways to manage the python population, including specially designed traps.During the Python Challenge, experienced hunters had more success than the hundreds of amateurs who signed up, so the state is focusing on honing their expertise to harvest pythons in the wild, Segelson said.The state wildlife commission already allows people with special permits to remove pythons and other nonnative snakes from designated wildlife management areas. A partnership with The Nature Conservancy and Everglades National Park will continue to train people who regularly work in areas known to contain pythons such as law enforcement officers, utility workers and students doing research to kill or report nonnative snakes, Segelson.The state also will reach out to licensed hunters to train and encourage them to harvest pythons while theyre out in search of other animals during open hunting seasons on designated lands, Segelson said.Florida prohibits possession or sale of the pythons for use as pets, and federal law bans the importation and interstate sale of the species. The FWC urges people to report sightings of pythons and other exotic species to (888) IVE-GOT-1 (4834681) or www.ivegot1.org.

Hes the secretary, he can talk about whatever he wants, County Attorney Bob Shillinger said.Shillinger and County Administrator Roman Gastesi met with Prasad in Tallahassee late last month and scheduled the visit. The secretary was already scheduled to be in Key West the same day.He wanted to get time to get in front of the commission. We told him you could be first on our agenda and kill two birds with one stone, Shillinger said. The 2.2-mile section of the old Seven Mile Bridge leading from Marathon to Knights Key has made headlines for months as the county and DOT negotiate how much each would pay for an estimated $18 million bill to repair the decking and railings. In exchange, DOT insists on turning ownership of the bridge over to Monroe. Complicating matters is a September report from consultant Nelson Canjura, whom the county paid to analyze a pair of complicated 2012 DOT inspection reports that outline the bridges general state of disrepair. Canjura told the County Commission that without major renovation, the bridge is at the end of its service life and intimated the $18 million estimate is for more of a patchwork job rather than total repair. He claimed it could cost as much as $71.76 million over 30 years to keep the bridge leading to Pigeon Key viable. Prasads visit with the Key West chamber will likely revolve around residents and business owners issues with the ongoing $41.5 million reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard.DOT head gives commission updateFrom DOT, 1A Cops ground Marathon pilotA Marathon man with no pilots license stands accused of recklessly flying an aircraft with no registration. John Walsh, 46, was arrested Tuesday on two felony charges stemming from a Sept. 14 incident at the Sandbar anchoring spot off Islamoradas Whale Harbor Channel. Walshs aircraft, an MSquared Breese 2 ultralight built from a kit and fitted with seaplane pontoons, was seized by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office for possible forfeiture. A witness identified as a Federal Aviation Administration safety inspector said he was near the Sandbar when he saw Walshs small seaplane make a low altitude fly-by, about 25 feet above a group of boats and people. The pilot landed the twoseat aircraft near boats on the water and started soliciting customers for a ride in the plane for three 20 dollar bills, according to a Sheriffs Office report. The inspector alerted the FAA security office in Miami, and the agency asked the Sheriffs Office for help. Brooks Bateman, director of the Sheriffs Office Aviation Division, found Walsh doesnt have a pilots license or a license to carry passengers for hire. Walsh was charged with operation of an aircraft in a careless or reckless manner so as to endanger the life or property of another and having an unregistered aircraft. Both are felonies.Walsh accused of soliciting without licenseMIDDLE KEYSKeynoter Staff13 Cuban migrants make it ashoreThirteen refugees from Cuba made it ashore in Key West on Friday and their first true taste of the U.S. was McDonalds. The Key West Police Department says the 13, ranging in age from 21 to 54, were found near mile marker 1 after officers were called by someone saying the group of migrants had landed at Smathers Beach on South Roosevelt Boulevard around 4:30 a.m. Officer Julio Gomez wrote in a report that the migrants told him they had left Cuba eight days earlier on a 15-foot boat with a Russian-made engine and had landed in the Bahamas, where they stayed about two and a half days. They then headed to the U.S., and believed they were in the area of Marathon when the prop broke. They said that they drifted that area for another couple of days. They said that the high winds and current finally allowed them to land in Key West. When found, they were cold, hungry and thirsty. So police went and bought two cases of water for them. Then they were taken to the parking lot of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on Stock Island, where U.S. Customs and Border Protection was called. While waiting for the federal agents, Key West medic Sheldon Goodman went to McDonalds and purchased 26 Egg McMuffins, which provided them with their first American meal.IMMIGRATIONKeynoter StaffNo more Python Challenge, state saysTHE EVERGLADESAssociated PressA 60-day due-diligence period checked out fine and the prospective ownership group headed by city of Marathon Finance Director Peter Rosasco is one step closer to purchasing the Florida Keys Country Club in Marathon.Rosasco, developer Marvin Rappaport and other investors plan a 60to 65-room hotel with 13 vacation cottages and revamped amenities at the former Sombrero Country Club on Sombrero Boulevard. Rosasco says a price hasnt been established. The Monroe County Property Appraisers Office lists four lots as part of the country club with a combined assessment of $3.8 million. The county club is now owned by its members.Rosasco said his group has hired various professionals to begin working on a conditional-use application, which is basically the city of Marathon signing off on their plans.He said hes hired two architects, one for the resort area and one who does golfcourse renovations; civil engineers to address drainage concerns; a traffic consultant; and land planners to prepare the application. In a perfect world, the plan is to be at the Planning Commission in the later part of January or first part of February. Then the City Council right after that, Rosasco said. Our target is to get the conditional-use approval done in February, have a closing with the club in March and be working on the front nine and drainage in that area, relocating the tennis courts and the new clubhouse in May or June, he added. Rosasco said the sale and the groups financing would be contingent on securing the conditional-use permit for development from the city. Were very excited. It seems to be proceeding along nicely. Its a lot of work and a sequential process we have to go through, he said. Tentative plans call for a new clubhouse to be built where the current tennis courts and storage space are, while the hotel would be built where the current clubhouse is. That building would be torn down. There would also be significant improvement to the golf course itself. Then-Sombrero Country Club had as many as 280 members in the past, but is down to 49 certificated members, or those with an ownership stake. It also has 26 club members and about 175 player card members that pay an annual fee for the card and a per-round fee.Country clubs sale gets closerMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com
Its getting harder and harder these days to do a load of laundry in the Florida Keys.Six months after Marathons only Laundro mat closed, the Big Pine Laundry Loft on Big Pine Key has followed suit. That means people from the Lower Keys through mile marker 82 in Islamorada are now without a Laundromat (there are Laundromats in Key West). Coynes Laundry, a dropoff-only location, is available in the Little Venice area of Marathon near 112th Street and U.S. 1. The Laundry Loft was in the Winn-Dixie Shopping Center on Big Pine. The reason for its closing is unclear. West Palm Beach-based Ferber Co. manages the shopping center and referred the Keynoter to listing agent Claude Gardner from Prudential Knight & Gardner Realty. Gardner did not return several calls for comment Monday and Tuesday. Donna Farmer owned the Maytag Clean Laundry around mile marker 50 bayside but it closed in May after 31 years in business after Farmer spent years trying to maintain it in the face of rising costs. She negotiated on several occasions with the city of Marathon over her sewer assessment, but couldnt afford to stay open. Coynes owner Aaron Osters has been running his laundry for roughly 18 months He said hes seen a bit of an uptick in business since Farmer closed shop. A little bit but were not a Laundromat. Were drop-off only so its a different business, he said. Drop-off laundry is more expensive because Coynes washes and folds each customers laundry. They pay per pound for the service. Osters said he hasnt noticed an impact from the Laundry Loft shutting down, but called his business relatively busy. Were basically word of mouth; we havent really had to advertise, he said.

That means Lower Keys residents who dont have a washing machine or access to one have to travel far to wash their clothes.New questions arise over raisesWith protracted contract negotiations with the United Teachers of Monroe at a standstill, School Board member Ed Davidson is questioning Superintendent Mark Porters entire strategy to fund the buy-back of unpopular teacher furlough days.The seven-day unpaid furlough program went into effect in 2011 and saves the district $1.7 million each year. To fund the buy-back basically, killing the furlough program Porter tapped $1.4 million derived from a Legislature-mandated teacher raise program to pay the lions share.Davidson said he doesnt believe thats an appropriate use of the money, which has the ripple effect of negating six months of bargaining with UTM and putting the district on the hook for seven figures. New money means new raises, Davidson said. I remain seriously concerned that we have been negotiating on a very questionable premise: That we can use money for new raises to pay off old furlough-day obligations, which will create a budget crisis in excess of $1 million.Porter said the issue is premature because contract bargaining is not complete. When it is, the district will submit to the state Department of Education a plan for how the $1.4 million will be spent.Until such time as the negotiations process is completed and we thereby have a plan to submit, there is no question to be answered, he said. Any such purported answers are merely speculative at this point in time. He continued, Most important to our employees is the clear message that the reinstatement of furlough days is a decision that will not be revisited. The School Board did what was right for our employees for all the right reasons. Porter said the money for teacher salary increases is clearly part of our overall budget picture. Resources expended in the contract negotiations process will include both [teacher salary increase] revenue as well as other provided revenue. A one-year employment contract would cover 525 teaches and 114 school-related personnel like bus drivers and food-service workers. Stuart Kessler, a member of the districts appointed advisory Audit and Finance Committee, is also raising the alarm on the furlough buy-back. In a Nov. 12 letter to Porter and board members, Kessler wrote: From my research, it appears that the additional funds allocated by the state for teacher salary increases must be used for prospective increases, not the funding of furlough days from the previous contract. Kessler based his conclusion on a back-and-forth with Stephanie Hofheinz from the Department of Educations Office of Funding and Financial Reporting. Specifically, Hofheinz directed Kessler to Senate Bill 1514, Section 26, which says, A district school board or charter school board may distribute salary increases, but not use the money to restore previous cuts.Kessler also points to a Statewide Teacher Pay Increase Q & A distributed by the Department of Education.Question 13 asks: Are these funds to be used to cover previously bargained salary increases, or is the increase considered to be in addition to what our district already plans to offer? The answer is, This is a salary increase to be included in the base salary as determined by collective bargaining agreement. Porter announced an agreement in principle with UMT on Oct. 30 but that has since fallen apart over the budget reduction article in teacher and school-related employee contracts.MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

Box 500158, Marathon, FL 33050 E-mail: email@example.com Fax: 743-6397 Letters to the Editor EDITORIALStand your ground needs clarificationLETTERS TO THE EDITORVoters demanding changeUnless the elected Marathon officials and city administration had their heads in the sand or somewhere else, the mandate and significance of the thunderous message that was sent by the voters of Marathon at the ballot box on Nov. 5 should have been received loud and absolutely clear by the elected officials and administration. The Marathon citizens are demanding major changes in the leadership and guidance of the city, the management at City Hall and a more-considerate and respectful attitude in the way the citizens carry out their business with the city. There would have been another new council member if there had been another choice on the ballot, but unfortunately there was not. If the current City Council members are blind and deaf to the memorandum and that as sent by the voters demanding changes, then the voters will send a redundant message next year to the council members who may be trying to be re-elected and the open seats of those who will be term-limited out. There is and will be an organized effort by citizens to deliver honorable and ethical candidates next year to be elected to make the needed and essential changes if current council members dont have the intestinal fortitude or are too timid to make the changes.There needs to be a purging in several positions at City Hall, on City Council and on various boards to employ and appoint people who are unbiased, impartial, unprejudiced and not connected and owing to outside interests. Marathon voters are paying attention and we residents are demanding accountability.Jorge Ruiz MarathonProtest was distastefulI dont know if you know that new Marathon City Councilman Mark Senmartin arrogantly made a protest on Halloween about his code conviction by wearing a George Washington costume holding a double-edged ax with a printed message on his shirt stating, Guilty for cutting down one cherry tree.How arrogant of this newly elected councilman. He destroys a hardwood hammock and rudely jokes about it. I just hope that people dont get the impression that it is OK to tear down native trees without a permit, as Senmartin did, and basically get a slap on the wrist by Code Compliance for doing it. Larry Benvenuti MarathonObamas ship is waywardRegarding the Nov. 13 letter to the editor from Mr. Simmons of Delray Beach, Nations on right track, I dont know whether to laugh or cry about his missive but it clearly is the rant of a true believer. Nothing that, nor anyone else, can say will dissuade him from his strident position that Bush, Romney, etc. al., are the source of all that is wrong with this country. While I agree that we are all fortunate to live in this great nation, I take exception to his position that the current administration is responsible for all that is good. As is often the case, what a person does not say is just as important as what he does; notice that the words debt, deficit and unemployment never appear. Mr. Simmons states, No, our great nation is thriving and flourishing and we will continue to do so under President Obama. If these are what Mr. Simmons considers good economic times, I would hate to experience his idea of a downturn. Perhaps he does not remember some real economic booms like during the Reagan years and part of Clintons presidency. Despite massive government spending, this has been the slowest and most anemic recovery since the Great Depression (which, incidentally, was ended by World War II, not FDR and the New Deal). Our nations debt as a percentage of gross domestic product is higher now than anytime since World War II (when we really did need to have high government spending). As for jobs, the so-called unemployment rate is high, but it is a fictitious number because it does not count as unemployed those who have stopped looking for work. Finally, I was especially amused by his description of those who had private medical insurance as victims of immoral capitalists (one can only wonder whether he uses the same phrase book as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez in crafting his comments). These are the same victims who have no had their insurance policies cancelled due to Obamas signature legislation despite its grandfather clause. One thing he failed to mention were the repeated intentional deceptions (lies) that Obama and other Democrats used to sell this hijacking of our healthcare system. Perhaps Mr. Simmons could describe how these repeated deceptions by Mr. Obama were really the fault of Bush, Cheney, Romney, etc. Bob Leier Marathon All I need is 38 cents.As I was leaving the grocery store the other day, I saw what is surely a familiar sight to many Key West citizens: A bearded, unkempt man, apparently homeless, sitting in a wheelchair and panhandling for change. As I drew near him, I saw his bloodshot eyes and smelled the aroma of booze. When he asked me for that odd sum of money, I suddenly found myself at an impasse: Help him or not?Not so long ago, I was in the same situation this man was. That incident, along with the fact that Nov. 16-24 is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, has given me pause to reflect upon how I changed my life and how someone can avoid the same predicament. An active alcoholic for most of my adulthood, I came to Key West in January 2012 because one of the few friends I had left lives here. It wasnt long before my friend realized what sad shape I was in, so he told me I could no longer live with him.So I, with my proper upbringing, college degree and extensive employment history, suddenly found myself homeless. At that point I knew I needed some help, but with the absence of any type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility here, I wasnt sure where to turn.Fortunately, I found out about the mens program at the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition, a local nonprofit organization that provides lodging and assistance to homeless people suffering from addiction, at minimal cost to the client. The program has three phases, and clients can receive its services for up to two years.I entered the program in early April 2012, and my life has since turned around completely. Im now living in the third phase, and was recently named its monitor. I oversee the completion of chores, administer random drug and alcohol tests and serve as the liaison between the coalition staff and clients.One reason for my personal transformation is that the coalition requires its clients to attend 12-step meetings daily. So I quickly immersed myself in the meetings, and have since become a familiar face at the Anchors Aweigh Club on Virginia Street, a facility that hosts a variety of such group gatherings.In addition to the moral overhaul with which the 12-step programs have blessed me, I am once more part of the community. Im a member of a large, loving fellowship, and now have scores of friends and acquaintances, filling a decades-old void in my personal life. And the most important lesson that the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition and the 12-step programs have taught me is how to take personal responsibility for my own existence. Because my alcoholism had warped my values, Id just assumed (often incorrectly) that other people would take care of me. And I found myself part of a vicious cycle: The fewer people wanted to help me, the more I drank to forget about my problems. But because of the coalition, that cycle was broken. Ive been clean and sober for 19 months now. Im employed, I again have an outstanding relationship with my family, and my values have taken a 180-degree turn. And the homeless man I mentioned earlier who asked me for 38 cents? I gave him a five-dollar bill. As an alcoholic myself, I wouldnt be surprised to learn that he wheeled himself to the nearest liquor store to buy a bottle. But you know what? Maybe he didnt. Theres a chance he used the money to buy food or clothes, so that slim possibility is what I focused on. In any case, the huge smile on the mans face when I gave him the money told me Id just made his day.I used to scoff at homeless people, thinking they were just too stupid or lazy to change. But because of the life lessons Ive learned in the past two years, theres one value I now possess thats as important to me as any other: Hope.Key West is a town whose motto is One Human Family. To me, that means that before someone is rich or poor, gay or straight, handicapped or able-bodied, homeless or a property owner, theyre human. And I hope that whatever problems they encounter, they will somehow find a solution to. These days, when someone asks me for 38 cents, I try to remember that.John Turner, a native Mississippian, is a two-year Key West resident after moving here from upstate New York. Hes a freelance journalist and author, and is compiling a collection of humorous short stories about his life.Different interpretations of what constitutes a threat need to tightenWhat was the surest winning bet in Florida earlier this month? That a legislative committee hearing on repealing the states controversial Stand Your Ground law would end up with a lopsided No vote. The roll-back effort never had a chance. You cant fault the repeals supporters for trying. Not with a self-defense law that gives immunity to someone who shoots first and asks questions later. Stand Your Ground garnered national attention after Sanford neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager from Miami Gardens, in 2012. When Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder, both sides of the controversy erupted in renewed arguments for and against the law. Zimmerman didnt claim a Stand Your Ground defense, but the laws language was included in instructions to the jury. Following the acquittal, a group of activists held a 31-day protest outside Gov. Rick Scotts office demanding he call a special legislative session on the self-defense law. The governor refused, but the protesters got the ear of Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford, who agreed to hold a hearing on the law this fall. And so the supporters and opponents of the 2005 Stand Your Ground law gathered in Tallahassee on Nov. 7 for a five-hour hearing chaired by Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Republican who supports Stand Your Ground. In the end, after emotional testimony from shooting victims relatives seeking either a repeal or to tighten the laws language and equally ardent testimony from the laws supporters, the House Criminal Justice subcommittee voted 11-2 to keep the law exactly the same. A sure bet, indeed. The committee did approve one change in separate bill. By a 12-1 vote, the lawmakers passed a proviso ensuring that people who fire a warning shot when feeling threatened arent subject to the minimum mandatory sentencing law called 10-20-Life. And theres the major problem with Floridas Stand Your Ground statute. It is so loosely written that the self-defense claim often is interpreted differently in separate cases. Where one individual is acquitted for feeling threatened enough to shoot and kill another person under the law, the next individual is found guilty for simply firing a warning shot in self-defense. While the warning-shot immunity bill makes sense, the committees refusal to tighten the statutes wording to clear up the confusion and end the disparate court interpretations of what constitutes a justified shooting is disappointing. Theres another chance to right the wrongs in the Stand Your Ground law when the Legislature convenes in March. Repeal is a non-starter. But lawmakers should find enough consensus to clarify who has the legal presumption of impunity when shooting at someone else in a threatening situation.

GUEST COLUMNHope saves formerly homeless mans life TURNER Volunteer policy repealedThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board has rescinded a volunteer and community outreach policy that one commissioner called a black eye to the district. Its unnecessary and causing a lot of public angst thats discrediting Mosquito Control, Commissioner Jack Bridges said.The policy was approved by a 3-2 vote in October, but negative feedback from the public led the board to repeal it during the boards Nov. 13 meeting.At issue was the portion of the policy that allotted Mosquito Control employees up to 24 hours of paid work time per year to participate in qualified Florida Keys Mosquito Control District volunteer activities. Many residents raised concerns with paying public employees with taxpayer dollars to volunteer for other activities during work hours. This is public funds, not private funds, Key Largo resident Kay Thacker said. I appreciate the staff wanting to do this, but you do this out of the kindness of your heart, not to be paid. Thacker submitted a letter protesting the policy on behalf of the Island of Key Largo Federation of Home owner Associations. James Zdan, the districts aircraft maintenance supervisor, took a different tack. He pointed out the policy is meant to increase the districts presence in the community.Its actually the district thats volunteering, not so much the individual employee, he said. Years ago we didnt have these rules. Zdan pointed to Mosquito Control offering use of its forklifts to help the Dolphin Research Center unload a dolphin off a plane at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, or to unload water off trucks during hurricanes in years past. But Bridges noted that district Director Michael Doyle had already agreed that any working hour volunteerism would be related to Mosquito Control. Which begs the question, why do we need a policy to begin with? he asked.Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage said she feels its important for Mosquito Control to partner with other agencies in volunteer projects.I think this community outreach policy is not only good for the community, but good for our internal morale, she said.But Cranney-Gage ultimately voted to rescind the policy, with the caveat it be reworded and brought back to the commission at a future meeting. Chairman Bill Shaw was the only dissenter.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLFWC to hear gill-net issueRecent turmoil over Floridas gill-net ban likely will reach state fishery managers at a meeting this week in Weston in Broward County. The agenda of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission doesnt include gill nets, but Bill Kelly, chief executive of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, said he plans to seek a meeting with FWC staff. Floridas ban on large gill nets used to catch mullet and other species was approved by public referendum nearly two decades ago. Earlier this month, a lawsuit filed by North Florida fishermen caused a Circuit Court judge in Tallahassee to lift rules imposed after the referendum. That created a few days on no enforcement on the gill-net ban before state officials were able to get the ban back in place pending further legal review.The [commercial] industry is asking for the opportunity to meet with FWC staff to discuss reasonable regulation, Kelly said.In other action, the FWC will hear an update on Everglades restoration projects being undertaken by the state and federal governments. This summers extremely wet summer caused freshwater flows into the Indian River Lagoon on the east coast and other areas, killing fish and disrupting brackish ecosystems. Everglades restoration projects that could have prevented or lessened the impact have been slowed by financial problems. Recent actions of federal fishery management councils will be reviewed by the FWC board at the meeting, today and Thursday at the Bonaventure Conference Center in Weston.But no action is being takenKEYS FISHERIES By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgFloridas ban on large gill nets used to catch mullet and other species was approved by public referendum nearly two decades ago.
Lawmaker wants new tourism hallA special place in the Florida Capitol could be set aside to highlight the states all-time best tourism promoters. As the state works to boost its annual tourism numbers to 100 million visitors a year, state Sen. Nancy Detert (R-Venice) filed a measure (SB 398) on Thursday to create the Florida Tourism Hall of Fame to recognize people in the tourism industry who have made significant contributions to the economic climate and well-being of Floridians, according to the legislation.The tourism hall would be overseen by the Florida Tourism Industry Marketing Corp., with induction ceremonies tied to the annual Governors Conference on Tourism. No state money would be set aside for the hall.Detert suggests a preference in selecting nominees for Florida natives and those who have adopted the Sunshine State. The hall of fame would be the fifth set up in the firstfloor plaza of the Capitol in Tallahassee, joining the Florida Artists, Florida Civil Rights, Florida Veterans and Florida Womens halls of fame, as well as a memorial to Floridas Medal of Honor recipients.Inductees would be honored for contributionsNews Service of FloridaTOURISM Wednesday, November 20, 2013 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com George M.

Marathon Mayor Mike Cinque became Marathon resident Mike Cinque for the first time in almost seven years last week. As incumbent Rich Keating and newcomer Mark Senmartin were sworn in to the City Council at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 12, the outgoing threeterm council member and longtime Marathon resident was relaxing at his 40-acre farm south of Gainesville. He served three consecutive two-year terms, with eight months added to one term when council elections changed from March to November. But the reality is Cinques been at it much longer than that. I enjoyed it very much; 17 years I worked for the city. I started with incorporation 17 years ago, he said. The city eventually incorporated in 1999 and Cinque then became part of the exhaustive effort to finalize a state-mandated comprehensive land-use plan and land development regulations. He eventually served on the citys Planning Commission prior to winning election to the council in 2007.Hopefully, its done some good. I think were a better community than we were under [Monroe County] and better now than we were seven years ago, Cinque said.Marathon has been through quite a bit during Cinques tenure, including the construction of a roughly $100 million central sewer system that the city has been lauded for completing well ahead of the state-mandated December 2015 deadline. That sets the table for all the property owners to use their property, Cinque said, referring to large-scale Marriott and Hyatt hotel projects that recently secured building permits.Cinque started out as opposing sewers, but he helped find a way to move forward with the project. The original plan was to secure funding and sewer the Sombrero and Coco Plum areas of town.I turned the bend when I was able to say, We can do the whole town. We were able to put together the finances and said, The train is leaving the station, lets go with this thing, Cinque said.Cinque said he also counts the land-use plan and LDRs among his biggest accomplishments. He said newer residents dont realize how restrictive it was under Monroe County.Compared to what we were, we are so much better off. I think the entire county is because [the state] has lightened up a little bit, he said.The citys also improved its look during Cinques tenure, including landscaping U.S. 1 medians and improvements to city beaches, the city marina and boat ramps all while maintaining one of the lowest tax rates in the state for a city Marathons size, Cinque points out.I sat on the council for six budgets where we had depreciating taxable value and we kept spending at a point where we kept taxes very low and provided services and did the improvements we had in town, he said.It doesnt sound like Cinque plans on doing too much relaxing during the next year. The 58-year-old said he has a good amount of business to get caught up on. Cinque boards and trains horses at his farm and owns two trailer parks and other rental properties in Marathon. He said hes considering opening his Stuffed Pig breakfast restaurant on the weekends for a barbecuetype thing.The city charter calls for termed-out council members to spend at least one year off the dais. Cinque said he hasnt ruled out running in 2014, but has also considered a run for Monroe County Commission.I might come back, he said. I want to see how the city does. Im proud of what Ive done and what the citys done. They always say democracy is inefficient, but its meant to be inefficient. You have your differences up there, but thats why you have a body of five and not of one.Sticker shock coupled with the potential loss of the annual Super Boat International races has prompted Key West city staff to reconsider long-held development plans for the 33acre Truman Waterfront.The Key West City Commission has adopted a master plan that includes a community center, the retrofit of a former U.S. Navy building, an interactive water feature, 250-seat amphitheater, waterside promenade, play fields and elaborate landscaping.The price could top $50 million; the city has $13.5 million earmarked. Given that figure, Port and Marina Services Director Doug Bradshaw told the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board at a Monday session that inclusion of the amphitheater and community center is now uncertain.He called those two bigticket items estimates for the amphitheater are $7 million and the community center about $20 million and said direction to reduce the costs and keep the plan is trickling down to me from City Manager Bob Vitas. This thing is a little bit in flux right now, Bradshaw said. Thats a big number to swallow. But theres no intention whatsoever for a full redesign.Causing further headaches is John Carbonells Super boat International Key West World Championship powerboat races, the 33rd running of which culminated on Nov. 10.Carbonell is in talks with the cities of Sarasota and Clearwater about hosting the championship because hes not happy with the level of local business sponsorships or the possible changes to the Truman Waterfront design. The waterfront is used during the race week as the dry pits and race village.I think its all tied together, Commissioner Mark Rossi said of the scaled-back park and future of the boat races.Everybody makes a ton of money from that event, he said. On the park, We need to be spending about $10 million. Keep it simple: Open fields, jogging trails, play fields, thats all that needs to be there. Advisory Board member Al Sullivan focused his comments on the politics and motivation driving the situation, which he described as a scheme by a number of people in town who dont want to see vertical structures. Im quizzical about the motivations behind, We dont have the money. Board Chairman Robert Cintron, critical of the boards lack of involvement in the design, said, It sounds to me like whats going on is there are decisions being made and were being told later. I frankly resent it. As for how the boat races impact the site, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton, an ex-officio member of the Truman board, said theres the potential for a significant problem.The sanctuary and its federal parent, the National Ocean ographic and Atmospheric Administration, have offices on the Truman Waterfront alongside the Nancy Foster Eco-Discovery Center.Typically we have no problems, Morton said, But during powerboat races, they close off the road. This year it definitely took a major step backwards when gatekeepers tried to stop NOAA employees and visitors to the Eco-Discovery Center. If they try to further limit access, thats going to be a significant problem, he said. Board members asked Bradshaw to bring back hard cost estimates for review. Take it off the coconut telegraph and put it in front of everybody, board member Sandra McMannis said. I need more information.

This pumpkin custard will make your mouth melt. Recipe, 3B Finally, Conchs have Hurricanes numberNo one was sure the last time the Key West High School girls soccer team defeated Coral Shores High. Five years? Ten? It was 2006. The Hurricanes had won at least nine games in a row against their county rivals, but that changed Monday night at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium when, with a full moon rising, the Conchs, behind three goals from freshman Angela Niles, won, 4-0, to give coach Scott Paul his 200th career victory.Niles wasnt the only Conch hero there was Caila DeAbreu, who scored the first goal; there was the defensive quartet of Selyne Casas, Tatum Flowers. Marella Barroso and Lindsey Free; there was the overall play of Julia Passarelli and Libby Isherwood; and there was the goalkeeping of Angela Martin.The Conchs took a 1-0 lead 12 minutes into the game when the long-striding DeAbreu scored on a breakaway against Coral Shores keeper Pookie del Pino. The Hurricanes Cailin Reckwert tried to tie the score but her free kick sailed over the goal. Later, Reckwerts teammate, Hallie Paterson, got off a quick shot that Martin dived to save. Late in the half a wellplaced toss by MacKenzie Cohen found Niles, who, with the cheers from the bleachers ringing in her ears, broke in from 20 yards to score and make it 2-0. That was the score at halftime, during which Coral Shores coach Arthur Paterson said to Reckwert, You have work to do. We are not losing this game, and you will bring us back. Down on the other bench, Paul discussed strategy with DeAbreu and Maudia Azard as the other players chatted excitedly. Before sending his team out for the second half, he warned, Two-oh is a dangerous lead. Well into the second half, after Paterson shot wide on a 25-yard free kick, the Conchs struck again when Flowers made a long pass to DeAbreu, who raced down the left sideline before crossing to Niles, who scored to make it 3-0. Angela, that was phenomenal, absolutely phe-Key West beats Keys rival for first time in seven yearsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GIRLS SOCCERPhoto by BERT BUDDEWith the scoreboard telling the story, Conch freshman Angela Niles scores on a penalty kick to complete Key Wests 4-0 victory over Coral Shores on Monday night. Calm seas mean nice catchesHear that? No, you dont, because the winds have finally stopped. So that means the fishing remains pretty much as it was before we all had a few days stuck at the dock. The most consistent sailfish action is from Tennessee Light in the Upper Keys and east, although theyre beginning to spread more evenly throughout the Keys. Look for sailfish spraying ballyhoo first thing in the morning and later in the afternoon. Your mid-day approach should be to position yourself off the deep edge of the reef in 120 to 130 feet of water and try live-baiting. If you can find a good edge a color change or weed line start your efforts there. Live ballyhoo is the bait of choice for the sailfish. However, they will also take goggle eyes, pilchards and cigar minnows, especially when youre fishing away from the reef line. There are scattered reports of dolphin taking the sailfish baits. And the blackfin tuna are heavy at the humps, when you can get out there. The snapper bite on the reef remains very good. There are plenty of yellowtails up in the chum slicks along with some rather nice muttons and a fair number of keeper-size grouper.The patch reefs are loaded with mangroves, muttons and yellowtails Live bait is key for the mangroves and muttons, although small pinfish,Sailfish still plentiful, as are snapper at reefFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWIsland Christian midfielder Jasmine Theodosiou (right) disrupts a Riviera School attack during Fridays match in Islamorada, with support from Brianna Calderwood (left) and Amaya Dostaler (12).

The Lady Eagles travel Tuesday for a rematch at Riviera School.LOOKING FOR A WIN Lady Fins are coming on strongA statement District 161A win and a hard-fought victory over a strong Class2A team made for a solid four-day stretch for the Marathon High School girls soccer team. The Dolphins handily defeated rival Palmer Trinity School, 6-2, in Miami on Friday night before earning a 4-3 road win over LaSalle High School on Monday. The win over the Falcons on Friday puts the Dolphins in line for a No. 1 district tournament seed, as they now sit 3-0 with games against Archimedean Academy and Westwood Christian School to go. Palmer and Marathon are easily the top two District 16-1A programs. The girls were very focused going into this game. They definitely wanted it. You could see it in their eyes it was going to go well and we pretty much kept control the whole time, coach Cindy Durkin said. Freshman Chandler Elliott wasted little time making her presence felt after missing the previous two games for a red card during a Nov. 6 match. She scored off a Brandi Spalten assist at the 8:05 mark to put the Dolphins up 1-0. Just over a minute later, Savannah Rodamer scored the first of her three goals on a header off a Regan Durkin corner kick. Rodamer scored again at the 29:51 mark off a through ball from Durkin, and assisted Elliott on her second goal of the half at the 37:27 mark to make it 4-0 at the break. Palmer didnt go quietly, though, as speedy forward Sarah Medina, a Division I soccer recruit, netted two goals in the first 13 minutes of the second half.

Though Konhaeuser Lopez scored only five points, she played spectacularly on offense and defense, said Key West coach Shonta McLeod.The game was close throughout. The Dolphins were up by five at the end of the first quarter, 13-8, but the Copnchs led at the half, 24-22.Key West closed an eight-point second-quarter gap thanks mainly to Marathons struggles from the free throw line, an early season Achilles heel for the Dolphins. Marathon shot just 10-for-28 (35.7 percent) from the line overall. The girls played extremely hard; we just have to learn to execute under pressure, Dolphins coach Deanna Klaus said. I had to regroup the girls before the third quarter because our starters were overly excited, McLeod said of the Conchs. Going into the fourth quarter, Marathon, employing a full-court press, held a 35-34 lead. Guard Tanisha Multy led Key West with 24 points.

Lori and Dave Smythe from Fort Lauderdale fished on the Blue Magic, docked at Keys Fisheries in Marathon, with Capt. Larry Bell and mate, Alex Bell. They fished in Florida Bay and caught mangroves and jacks and released about 15 Goliath grouper.Capt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing out of the Hammocks in Marathon, caught good numbers of blackfin tuna at the humps. He reports the occasional dolphin, although theyre getting scarce, and the sailfish bite gets better everyday. There are plenty of snappers and a good number of groupers on the reef. And fishing at the Seven Mile Bridge has been great for mangroves. Capt. Zach Willis guided John Rumberger and his son, Patrick, from Middletown, Conn., for two days on their Captain Pips rental boat. They brought in plenty of mangroves and yellowtails along with a couple of bonito.Capt. Bob Kidwell fished a group of anglers from Jacksonville on the Pips 36. They caught mangroves in the bay.The crews on the Sea Squared and the Klimax fished the bay and bridge as the winds subsided and then headed straight to the reef when calm conditions prevailed. Catches included mangroves up to five pounds, muttons and yellowtails.Capt. Moe Mottice and his fellow captains, from Moes Custom Charters in Key West, report a great offshore bite for sailfish, blackfins, dolphin and lots of skipjacks. In the backcountry, big mangroves, yellowtails and sharks kept their anglers busy. And Mottice says there are still a few tarpon in the harbor, small but fun to catch.Capt.

When youre ahead 4-0, you sometimes lose your focus a little bit. The team regrouped and put two in to seal the victory, coach Durkin said. Rodamer completed her hat trick just before the second-half water break, giving the Dolphins a comfortable 5-2 lead.During injury time (41:43), the Dolphins were awarded a penalty kick after a hand ball inside the 18-yard box. Sydney Konrath converted the try to make it 6-2 in the games closing moments. On Monday, the Dolphins defeated a Class-2A LaSalle team that had beaten the only team Marathon has lost to this season Carrollton School, twice by a 3-1 score.It was a very tough game, coach Durkin said. The game went back and forth. They had a strong attacking line. Their goalie tended to bat the ball [on save attempts] and it created a bobbling effect that worked to our advantage. Spalten started the scoring on Monday with a goal at the 8:54 mark. LaSalle tied the game just three minutes later, but Spaltens second goal gave the Dolphins a 2-1 lead with 17 minutes left in the first half. Elliot scored less than two minutes later to make it 3-1 and Marathon held a 3-2 lead at the half. Rodamer scored to make it 4-2 at the 7:24 mark of the second half, but LaSalle scored to make it a one-goal game with 19 minutes to play. At that point, coach Durkin said the team tightened up and made sure we brought in the win. We had two goals for that game: Play well and dont get hurt. We achieved both of those and thats why we schedule stronger teams, so we can play out different scenarios, the coach said.

I could be going for a hat trick, she said, eager to get back in. With time running out, Reckwert got a yellow card and returned angrily to the bench. (I tried to keep my cool, she said later.) In the last minute, Niles got her hat trick when she drilled in a penalty kick, and the Conchs, who host Marathon at 7 tonight, celebrated a 5-3 record. When the game ended, Arthur Paterson, whose team had dropped to 3-1, engaged in a long conversation with the officials, whom he had not been reluctant to criticize, despite being warned at the games onset. Later, he said, Our girls werent expecting the physical nature of the game. Congratulations to Paul. Paul looked across the field toward Paterson and said, Hes got speed and youngsters, but so do we. But Paterson wasnt about to concede anything.Sometimes the better team does not win, he had told his team in its post-game huddle, words the Hurricanes carried to their bus.The Hurricane girls play Friday at 3:30 p.m. against Carrollton at home.Finally, victoryFrom Soccer, 1B Appleby both had nine; Brooke Marsden had four; and Saria Smith scored two.

Senior Brooklyn Irwin scored 19 points as the Lady Canes topped the Palmer Trinity junior varsity, 41-25, at Coral Shores. Kyia Herlth scored 10 points in the paint and led the Canes in rebounds. Both Irwin and Herlth were sidelined for the seasons first game, a loss to Marathon High School.Elizabeth Romeo, who scored 30 points against Marathon, was traveling for a family emergency this week.The pieces to the puzzle are coming together, Coral Shores head coach Jessica Wood said. Im looking forward to the next game when we have all of our key players on the court. Cane veteran Jackii Boyle scored eight points Monday. Guards Tori Ellis and Yami Vargas each added a bucket and played amazing defense, Wood said. Coral Shores (1-1) took a 15-10 halftime lead over the JV Falcons, then matched Palmers 13 points in the third with an Irwin 3-pointer helping. Playing a non-district schedule this winter, the Canes scheduled the Palmer JV rather than the Lady Falcon varsity, a stateranked Class 3A contender and defending district champion.

San Pablo is at 550 122nd St. oceanside (mile marker 53.5). Try a Thai custardHalloween may be done, but pumpkin season rolls on. And its a welcome fact of life for a pumpkin lover. Im a fan of traditional American pumpkin pie, of course, but I also know that pumpkin is versatile, and I thought I might be able to internationalize it a little, too. This recipe, which reflects the influence of Thai cuisine, is a good example. It stars Thai staples like kaffir lime leaves and coconut milk, and complements them with fatfree evaporated milk. I used to think that Thai food owed almost all of its Thai-ness to lemon grass. But that was before I learned about kaffir lime leaves. When I was finally introduced to them, I was knocked out by the intensity and richness of their scent and taste, and impressed by their ability to improve both sweet and savory dishes. I like to use them to infuse sugar syrup, then add it to lemonade or iced tea. You can find kaffir lime leaves in Asian grocers, online and often at natural foods stores. You can find them fresh (they freeze and store well), or even thinly sliced and jarred. This recipe calls for canned pumpkin, an ingredient at which I used to turn up my nose. Happily, I figured out after a while that pumpkins, like tomatoes, dont suffer from canning. Theyre harvested at peak ripeness, then cooked and canned immediately, which ensures that both flavor and health benefits are retained. Besides, who has the time to cut up, seed, cook and puree fresh pumpkin, especially when fresh pumpkin can be watery and lackluster? Still, be sure to read the label. You want solid pack canned pumpkin with no added sugar, salt or other additives. Deliciousness aside, pumpkin is a smart choice for dessert. Canned or fresh, its full of carotenoids and fiber, and it boasts more potassium than a banana. And a cup of canned pumpkin has just 80 calories. Use fat-free evaporated milk because it has a lovely creaminess. Combined with the coconut milk, it delivers the kind of creamy texture that defines a custard without all the fat and calories. In the end, nobody will suspect theyre digging into custard lite. What you need: Three large eggs. Half a cup packed brown sugar, preferably dark. Half a cup lite coconut milk. Five ounces fat-free evaporated milk. Two teaspoons finely minced kaffir lime leaves (or 1.5 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest). One and half tablespoons lime juice. Two tablespoons dark rum (optional). Seeds from one vanilla bean or 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract. Quarter teaspoon table salt. One cup pumpkin puree. Chopped crystallized ginger or toasted coconut, to garnish. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring a kettle of water to a simmer. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs. Add the brown sugar and beat just until any lumps have dissolved. Add the coconut milk, condensed milk, lime leaves, lime juice, rum, if using, vanilla seeds or extract, salt and pumpkin puree. Beat just until smooth. Divide the mixture between six one-cup ramekins. Set the ramekins into a rectangular baking pan (such as a lasagna pan), pour enough simmering water into the baking pan to come half way up the sides of the ramekins.Carefully transfer the baking pan to the ovens middle shelf and bake until a knife inserted at the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Remove the ramekins from the water bath and cool on a wire rack. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, about six hours. Serve each portion topped with some of the crystallized ginger or coconut. Start to finish: Seven hours, 30 minutes (20 minutes active).
