Stormless season endsWhile around the dinner table on Thanksgiving, Florida Keys residents may want to give thanks for one of the quietest hurricane seasons ever. None of the storms this year threatened the Keys, said Irene Toner, director of Emergency Management for Monroe County. So this really is a good Thanksgiving. The six-month hurricane season officially ends Saturday with nothing on the Atlantic tropical-storm front developing by then.Only two hurricanes Ingrid and Humberto, both Category 1 formed from among the 13 named Atlantic storms in 2013.This year is expected to rank as the sixth-least active Atlantic hurricane season since 1950, according to a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report on collective strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes.The two hurricanes was the lowest number in nearly 20 years.On average, there are six hurricanes in the season, with three reaching major hurricane status of Category 3 or higher.NOAA experts said Monday that persistent, unfavorable atmospheric conditions over the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and tropical Atlantic Ocean caused the weak season. As a result, we did not see the large numbers of hurricanes that typically accompany these climate patterns, said Gerry Bell, hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center.Dusty, dry air coming off the Sahara and persistent wind shear were among the main factors limiting the storm formation.There wasnt a whole lot of energy for them to really get strong, state meteorologist Amy Godsey told the News Service of Florida. Early predictions called for an extremely active season, with up to 20 named storms andThis years hurricane season was the least active in two decadesHURRICANE SEASON By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comZecca faces 10 years in prisonDennis Zecca, a former commander of U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada, admitted in federal court on Monday that he hired a hitman to kill Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. In return for his guilty plea to murder for hire, the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami dropped charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon.If he didnt plead out, Zecca would have faced trial in December.U.S. District Court Judge Jose Martinez set sentencing for 1:30 p.m. March 25 in Key West. Zecca faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and three years of probation. He also must pay a fine up to $250,000, which theoretically could come from his military pension. If convicted of all the charges that had been handed up by a grand jury, he faced life.Zecca, 52, was wearing a tan prison jumpsuit while shackled and handcuffed, and sporting bandages on his leftMurder-for-hire defendant admits his involvementIN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff ZECCABoard to whittle proposed shelter sitesThe Key West City Commission has been presented with 30 potential sites for a homeless shelter but any decisions are going to wait until January at the earliest.City Planner Don Craig, responding to direction from commissioners, compiled the list and went through the publicly and privately owned options at the Nov. 19 commission meeting at Old City Hall.Mayor Craig Cates has been pushing since 2011 for a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week shelter with medical care, food service, case management and other services at the former Easter Seals building on Stock Islands College Road. The city owns that land.But opposition from the public and some fellow commissioners derailed that concept. Its a long way away right now, Cates said of a new shelter. Realistically, theres not very many sites at all. Theres really only one and thats out there at Easter Seals.A new shelter would replace the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, a 140-bed center on property owned by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on Stock Island. Sheriff Rick Ramsay has said he wont renew the citys lease in March. Cates said the next step is a December workshop to narrow the potential sites to four or five. Then on Jan. 28, the social-services umbrella Monroe County Continuum of Care plans a countywide physical count of the homeless looking under bridges, in the mangroves, behind businesses, that sort of thing.After that, Cates said the plan is to convene a summit with the City Commission and representatives from Monroe County and various social-service agencies. Well get everybody involved and see if we can come up with a plan and all work together, the mayor said. Commissioners have repeatedly called for Monroe County to pitch in on the effort, both in terms ofSome locations are non-starters, commissioners sayBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTHE HOMELESSYaniz is out at the Rotary ClubIn the aftermath of an expletive-ridden e-mail from his city account being made public, Key West City Commissioner Tony Yaniz has resigned from the Rotary Club of Key West.Club President Frank Herrada, reached Tuesday, confirmed Yanizs resignation.He resigned on his own, Herrada said. It didnt come from the club, although there is speculation that Yaniz resigned in the face of being booted virtually unheard of in a service organization.Yanizs e-mail was prompted by a Sept. 26 incident at a Rotary meeting during which Mayor Craig Cates Yanizs political rival gave a presentation about the citys plans to address homelessness.When Cates presentation started, Yaniz walked out of the room behind Cates as the mayor spoke and later said he was offended by what he called the overtly political nature of Cates remarks. He said they conflict with Rotarys principles.City Commis sioner Mark Rossi is also a member of that Rotary Club, which meets at noon Thursdays at the Marriot Beachside. Rossi said Yanizs resignation was about his conduct at the meeting, which he described as a spectacle. He agreed that resignations from Rotary arent something heard about often but it just goes to show it can happen.After the September meeting, Jim Fitton, a Rotarian and the citys former ports director, wrote to Yaniz that he was disappointed by his actions. That set off Yaniz in a big way.He responded using his city e-mail address lobbing F-bombs at Cates, Fitton and the Rotary in general.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST YANIZSee Zecca, 2ASee Storms, 2ASee Homeless, 2APhoto by SAM KENNEDYKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEY

The Tampa Bay Times reported that Detzner wrote to supervisors Monday advising them they should not solicit return of absentee ballots at any place other than a supervisors office, except for the purpose of having the absentee ballot cancelled if the voter wants to vote in person. That would prevent supervisors from having ballot drop-off locations that might be more convenient for voters. Democrats on Tuesday quickly criticized the directive by Detzner, who is part of Republican Gov. Rick Scotts administration. The Florida Democratic Party issued a news release contending the directive is an attempt to suppress voting.Mondays harsh new restrictions on absentee ballots confirm that Rick Scott will say or do anything to hang on to power, state Democratic Chairwoman Allison Tant said in the release. News Service of Florida three to four major hurricanes.This is why, when the early predictions come out, we really dont care, Toner said. Even if its a slow season, it only takes one. We have to be ready.Were glad they were wrong about this, Toner said. Its another sign that this is Mother Nature at work, and shes going to do whatever she wants to do. The seasons first tropical storm, Andrea, dumped a lot of rain on North Florida. But it was an alert-free season for Florida after that. Seven hurricanes raked Florida over the hectic 2004 and 2005 seasons. Now it has been eight years since a hurricane landfall on state shores. If the ocean currents and steering currents and the atmosphere were just shifted a little bit, those two  hurricanes might have come to the United States, Godsey told the News Service.Storms can look like nothing but then get stronger or change direction, so we watch every one, Toner said. But it would be nice if it stayed like this for the next 30 years.Quiet season endsFrom Storms, 1A money and collaboration, although the county hasnt been formally approached. This isnt just a Key West problem, Commis sioner Billy Wardlow said. Its a city, county, state and federal problem. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley asked Craig to further analyze the possible sites and give us a breakdown of issues specific to each site, pros and cons. That will drive the commissions selection of top sites. Craig made it clear that his effort identifying possible sites is preliminary and largely based on could you get it, was it large enough to put a homeless shelter there and did it have any characteristics that merited a further review.Included on the list are tourist attractions like the Truman Waterfront and Mallory Square some of these are just 100 percent no, Commissioner Tony Yaniz said without disagreement from his colleagues.More realistic options, commissioners say, are the Easter Seals site, cityowned property on Trumbo Road, the former Hawk Missile Site, Poinciana Housing and a number of vacant lots on Rockland Key, Big Coppitt Key and Stock Island.Other public locations Craig presented include Trumbo Road, the Hawk missile site, Fran Ford White Crowned Pigeon Park, Peary Court Cemetery; Steadmans Boat Yard, City Electric system plant, the former Reynolds School, Poinciana Housing, Little Hamaca Park, the former landfill on College Road, and a Keys Energy site on College Road.Privately owned sites Craig listed include a parking lot at Louisa and Simonton street and a vacant lot at Louisa and William streets.Sites winnowedFrom Homeless, 1Awrist because of an operation he had while in custody. There were eight spectators in the courtroom gallery.After 26 years with the Coast Guard culminating with his Islamorada post, Zecca became part-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard.He was arrested last Dec. 21 for allegedly attempting to pay an employee a federal informant who is a convicted felon $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine to murder Schmitt.No one has ever said what the incentive was, and Schmitt says he has no idea and that to this day, he still doesnt know Zecca. Federal authorities say the murder plot had associates and co-conspirators in this offense but have not said who they are. That information could come out at his sentencing.The plot appears separate from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation, out of which the alleged plot to kill Schmitt was hatched. Federal authorities say Schmitt, who was not harmed, was not involved in the drug case.The hit was supposed to take place while Schmitt left a Christmas party. Zecca was arrested after the informant, who was wearing a wire for the feds, showed Zecca a doctored photo of Schmitt lying in a pool of blood and as Zecca was going to get $5,000 of the $20,000 payment for the hit. The gun count stemmed from Zecca giving the informant a 9mm Beretta to carry out Schmitts killing. A search of Zeccas Indigo Reef condo in Marathon following his arrest turned up a safe containing four handguns, four rifles, two shotguns, lots of ammunition and $42,600 in cash, the feds said. Zecca initially pleaded not guilty on Jan. 14. Hes been in custody since his arrest. Miami Herald reporter Cammy Clark provided the plea details.10 years likelyFrom Zecca, 1AGainesville also found oppositionThe hotly debated issue of how to deal with Key Wests homeless population isnt unique. Just look at Gainesville, where government and social-service groups have been working on a solution to that citys homeless situation since 2006. On Nov. 20, the state Cabinet agreed to sell the former Gainesville Correctional Institute to the city for $1.3 million, bringing the city one step closer to realizing its goal of creating a 350-bed homeless service center.In 2005, the city of Gainesville, Alachua County and social-service agencies formed the Gainesville Region Alachua County Empowerment committee. The following year, that group published a 10-year plan calling for the 350-bed shelter with on-site medical care, food service and case management, according to the document. In 2007, according to Gainesville City Council meeting minutes and reports from the University of Floridas WUFT news service, the council selected a parcel on North Main Street for development. But that was immediately thrown off track when a group called the Association of Businesses and Citizens of North Main Street formed to object, leading the city to scrap that plan.Fast forward to 2010. City records indicate selection of a new site in an industrial area bordering wetlands.While the land was being rezoned, an adjacent property owner sued, which culminated in 2012 with an order that the city must receive permitting from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a lengthy process, before moving forward. In August, the City Council began discussing the former prison site, resulting in the purchase this month. The next step is issuing a request for proposals to develop or operate the site. The areas homeless population is around 2,100 people.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTHE HOMELESS Policies in danger of being droppingA controversial 2012 state Senate bill could make more than 2,500 privately and publicly owned Keys land parcels ineligible for Citizens Property Insurance Corp. windstorm coverage come July 1. Thats according to Monroe County Growth Management staff, which last week analyzed the effect that language in Senate Bill 1770 from 2012s legislative session could have in Monroe County. According to staff, as many as 1,498 privately owned vacant lots, 899 privately owned developed lots and 114 publicly owned (government) buildings could be ineligible for coverage by the state-run insurer of last resort. Added at the behest of global conservation organization The Nature Conservancy, the language reads: Any major structure for which a permit is applied on or after July 1, 2014, for new construction or substantial improvement as defined in [state statutes] is not eligible for coverage if within Coastal Barrier Resource System boundaries.Congress created the Coastal Barrier Resource System in 1982 and updated it in 1990 to protect undeveloped coastal areas. There are many such areas in the Keys.SB 1770 was intended to facilitate Gov. Rick Scotts mandate that Citizens get rid of at least half of its then-1.3 million policies by creating a clearinghouse for the agency to dump them off to private insurers. According to Citizens spokesman Michael Peltier, the company holds roughly 24,600 wind-related policies in the Keys. Its unknown how many of those could be affected. The 2,511 figure is the worst-case scenario, as County Commissioner Heather Carruthers put it during the County Commissions Nov. 20 meeting in Key Largo. It could be as few as 1,574, depending on how Citizens interprets the federal coastal barrier maps.We dont know how Citizens is counting things. We havent gotten from them whether theyre doing any parcel that intersects [the maps] or doing a more careful analysis, county Senior Planner Emily Schemper said.State Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) addressed the County Commission on Nov. 20 and said she plans to hold open one of her six available bill slots for Citizensrelated issues. Raschein has been working with Citizens staff on a solution that could essentially exempt Monroe Country from the bills language. She said she has until March to file her bills. I stand ready to file legislation if we need, she said. Were still working on draft language and its still in its infancy stages. The 2014 legislative session starts March 4.Raschein hopes to fix issue in next sessionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFLOOD INSURANCE By the numbersMonroe County staff crunched the numbers last week and determined just how much the controversial state Senate Bill 1770 from 2012 could affect the Florida Keys come July 1. Thats when provisional language in the bill takes effect that would make up to 2,511 Keys parcels ineligible for Citizens Property Insurance Corp. windstorm coverage. Following are potentially affected parcels, according to county Growth Management staff:Privately owned vacant lots: Between 1,264 and 1,498 parcels.Privately owned developed land: Between 199 and 899 parcels.Publicly owned (government) land: Between 111 and 114 parcels.More homes burglarizedAs it deals with a rash of break-ins in the Upper Keys, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office say the burglaries are continuing. Three Islamorada homes were burglarized over the weekend, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Seven other burglaries took place over the past week in a Key Largo neighborhood.The three most recent burglaries happened in around mile marker 85, on the Old Highway. In each case, the suspect or suspects entered the homes through unlocked doors and took cash, wallets, purses and electronics. A handgun was also taken from one of the homes.The other seven burglaries took place in the vicinity of mile marker 100 in Key Largo. The method of entry is similar in those crimes, and similar items were taken, as well, Herrin said. I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of locking all your doors and windows when you go to sleep at night, Sheriff Rick Ramsay said. It is a simple-enough thing to do, and can be the difference between becoming a victim and staying safe and secure in your home. Other tips to prevent such crimes:Keep outside lights on at night. A burglar is less likely to strike if there is the possibility he or she will be seen.If your dog barks in the middle of the night, heed the warning. In several of the recent burglaries, dogs in the homes barked when the crimes occurred.If you see or hear anything suspicious, call the Sheriffs Office. The agency would rather respond immediately and find nothing than respond hours later and find we are too late to stop a crime from taking place, Herrin said. She noted that in some of the burglaries, homeowners saw or heard something but did not call, only to find in the morning theyd been victims of a crime. Anyone with information about the burglaries should contact the Sheriffs Office. You can also contact Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys. Tipsters can remain anonymous and, if a tip leads to an arrest, the caller would be eligible for a reward up to $1,000. The Crime Stoppers hotline is (800) 346-TIPS.That makes 10 in Upper Keys in recent weeksCRIME FRONTLarger fish zone floated for BiscayneState fishery managers offered support for conservation goals in Biscayne National Park waters north of Key Largo but intend to keep their voice heard on any fishing rule changes.A move away from an initial proposal for a no-fishing area covering 16 square miles pleased board members of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission when they met Thursday in Weston in Broward County.Instead, the National Park Service and FWC staff are working on a new and larger Special Recreation Zone where a limited number of recreational anglers would be allowed under a system similar to quota-hunt permits.Some folks think this is too loose, some think its overly restrictive, said FWC Vice Chairman Brian Yablonski. Were trying to hit the sweet spot with our stakeholders. The whole key here is preservation of the resource while making sure there is sustainable access for the enjoyment of the people of Florida, Commissioner Ron Bergeron said.Commissioners made no public mention Thursday of allowing continued commercial fishing in Biscayne National Parks newly proposed 23-square-mile recreational zone except for surface net fishing for ballyhoo.More restrictive rules create noose tightening around commercial fishing, Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association Executive Director Bill Kelly told the board in public comment. This closure mentality has got to stop. Kelly said steps to prevent water pollution from Miami-Dade County would do far more to promote increased fish stocks than limiting commercial fishing. An estimated 77 to 95 commercial fishermen use park waters annually for catches ranging from bait to food shrimp and lobster, FWC Marine Fisheries Director Jessica McCawley told the board. Sportfishing groups including the Coastal Conservation Association of Florida, the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust and the American Sportfishing Association trade group said the organizations remain open to discussion on the proposed 500 recreational permits for the zone, but want to iron out specifics. Those include the number of mooring buoys available inside the no-anchoring zone, the possibility of short-term permits for outof-state visitors, and assurance that permits would not be wasted on people who do not use them. The National Parks Conservation Association said rules allowing fishing in the zone were inadequate to protect the coral-reef ecosystem of the park. McCawley assured commissioners that any specific rules affecting fishermen would return to the FWC for a vote. We not giving anything up in terms of jurisdiction, she said. It has not been easy to get here, Yablonski said of the Special Recreation Zone. We were fighting a big battle on the marine reserve, and now the Park Service is doing something it has never done before.But commercial anglers would be all but bannedOUR ENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com
The Monroe County Sheriffs Office is investigating a likely murder-suicide on Big Pine Key. Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin didnt release full details by press time Tuesday, saying next of kin hadnt been notified, but said two bodies, a man and woman in their 40s and 50s, were found inside a car at the end of Fifth Avenue around 8:15 a.m. Monday. She said dispatchers received a call that the car was in woods at the end of the street. When deputies arrived on the scene, they found the car running. There was a hose running from the cars tailpipe to one of the windows, Herrin said. But it doesnt appear that either person struggled. It appears that both of them were participants in the process. It is technically a murder-suicide, but it doesnt appear anyone was at fault, she said. Herrin said further information was being withheld Tuesday afternoon until the Sheriffs Office could properly identify both people and notify next of kin. She did say the pair had identification on them and the license plate on the car was from Arizona. The medical examiner likes a confirmed identification by fingerprints if possible. Thats what were trying to do. More information will be released when it is available, Herrin said. The last murder-suicide in the Keys happened in May 2011, when 80-yearold Glen Tucker shot his wheelchair-bound wife, Joan and their cat at the couples Little Torch Key home before turning the gun on himself.Pair found in vehicle at end of road Wednesday, November 27, 2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com anksgiving BuetPeel & Eat Steamed Spiced Shrimp Clams Casino Chilled Spinach & Artichoke Dip Fresh Homemade Florida Lobster Bisque Sweet Corn ChowderCalifornia Lettuce & Spring Mix Salad with Assorted DressingsHerb Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy Homemade Herb Stung Sweet Potato Casserole Carved Top Round of Beef Au Jus Smoked Ham with a Whole Grain Mustard Cider Sauce Jumbo Lump Crab Balls with a Lemon Pepper Cream Mashed Red Skin Potatoes with Garlic & Chives Green Bean and Cremini Mushroom Casserole Fresh Cranberry Sauce Assortment of Fresh Dinner Rolls & Baked Breads Traditional Pumpkin Pie Fresh Fall Apple Pie Homemade Key Lime PieJoin us on anksgiving Day November 28 for a fantastic feast oceanfront overlooking the Historic Seven Mile Bridge and enjoy a relaxing meal with friends and family.

Schmitt also confirmed that a Dollar Tree store will move into Bealls existing 10,000-square-foot space in the same shopping center. Office Depot had been a tenant at the 107th Street and U.S. 1 shopping center since 1998, but downsized to a roughly 7,000-square-foot space on the other side of town at mile marker 50. Schmitt also owns that plaza and the space was most recently occupied by American Caribbean Real Estate. Before that, it was a furniture store.Bealls is taking possession [of its new space] this week and theyre supposed to be open sometime in February, he said. Its going to take a couple of months to get that space ready for them. Theyre going to change things around and set it up differently.Schmitt said both the Bealls and Dollar Tree leases are longer-term leases like the 25-year one Coldwell Banker signed for the Walgreens at U.S. 1 and 55th Street in Marathon.Meanwhile, theres been no movement on pharmacy chain CVS and its interest in another Schmitt-owned parcel, near mile marker 50 on the bayside.

Two New Town housemates got more than they bargained for Saturday when they called police to report a burglary and ended up in jail when the cops found marijuana, cocaine and meth in the Flagler Avenue home. Jodi Dawson, a 32-year-old server, is charged with felony counts of possession of cocaine and meth with intent to distribute.Her roommate Matthew Hughes, 38, is charged with two felonies for possessing more than 70 grams of marijuana and a small amount of cocaine, plus five misdemeanors for possession of drug paraphernalia, including storage containers, a grinder and pipe.Police say they received a report of a burglary in progress at 6:48 p.m. and surrounded the house when they responded. Some officers then entered the house and others searched neighboring yards, according to five incident and supplemental reports.No burglars were found but police said two handguns were stolen. They are a .22-caliber Ruger pistol and a Kahr P380, both belonging to Dawsons boyfriend, William Cook. Whoever broke in appeared to be familiar with the three pit bulls that were on the property, a report says. When police initially went into the house looking for the burglar, Officer David Hall saw a container of what turned out to be pot and then three more glass jars filled with marijuana for a total of 73 grams. Hughes said the drugs were for his personal use, a report says.While searching Dawson and Cooks bedroom, police found 1.7 grams of cocaine in a medical kit next to the bed and, in a backpack branded with Pixars Monsters University childrens characters, less than a gram of methamphetamine valued at $100.

This years three-week hunt with more than 1,600 hunters only netted a miserable 68 pythons. Really, either there are not as many as the scientists have claimed or we are terrible hunters. Why dont we let pythons become naturalized to our environment and let that same environment regulate them through the same common denominators of food and climate? Isnt that what true naturalists and believers in evolution advocate for all species of plants and animals?Pythons, like all other species, native or not, will cease to expand their territory once their food supply dwindles. They will also die in large numbers every year when a serious cold spell occurs, as happens to so many of our other species of natives and exotics alike.Our natural environment can absorb and sustain far more plant and animal life than it has. Let nature take its course and so-called evolution to continue.Frank Resillez Key LargoCity governments workingI would respectfully disagree with the opinions of Mr. Jorge Ruiz in a letter to the Keynoter [about wanting change in city of Marathon leadership]. I have had dealings with both Planning Director George Garrett and City Manager Roger Hernstadt and found both (as well as all the city employees I encountered) to be friendly, respectful and most times helpful.I think the so-called back-room deals were in the minds of certain people who didnt get their way or had other gripes against the city. As for the voter mandate Mr. Ruiz speaks of all of new Councilman Mark Senmartins supporters were asked to bullet vote and obviously blindly did so.Whoever actually originated the infamous letter detailing Senmartins Code Compliance case to the citizens was brilliant. Any fool would know it would only help Mr. Senmartin, not hurt him. Marathon folks dont like dirty tricks and were convinced this was done by one of his opponents. I know for a fact it wasnt.I hope the new council will do as good a job as the past council and I sincerely hope they will follow through with the current plans for a new city hall. No, we dont need a Taj Mahal but we desperately need a place to host at least 200 to 300 people so those who need that large of a venue have an option besides Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key.I am sure it is obvious that I supported Mr. Keating and Mr. Worthington but I fully expect Mr. Senmartin to do a fair and honest job for our city. He is a respected businessman and says he has the citys best interests at heart. I will take him at his word.

As 2013 chairman of the foundations silent auction, which raises funds for the scholarship fund, I thank the following Florida Keys businesses for their donations to the auction: Danger Charters and DoubleTree Grand Key Resort, Key West; the Islander Resort, Islamorada; and from Marathon, Cash Flow Pawn, Jewelry, Guns and Ammo; the Tackle Box; Shelter Bay Marine; Keys Fisheries Market and Marina; Crane Point Museum and Nature Center; and the Turtle Hospital. Lawrence J. Hribar Florida Mosquito Control Foundation MarathonBlessed to be a MarineWeeks have passed since we celebrated the U.S. Marine Corps 238th birthday. However, the spirit of the corps and the exhilarating lift infused within me refuses to dissipate. The solemn and grave traditions that were upheld during a beautiful Key Islamorada ceremony were followed by nothing less than pure bliss as we sang, danced, laughed and sought comfort in one anothers company. The unconditional love and camaraderie shared among Marines has no limits. Through the annals of our history, we have literally laid our lives down for one another. How can you not deeply love an individual who would selflessly sacrifice him or herself so you might not be mortally wounded or seriously injured? The civilians who supported and attended this Marine Corps birthday observance were absolutely magnificent. Without their aide, we would have not been able to have this event. Paul Bean, the Publix manager in Key Largo, Chef Michaels of Islamorada and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10211 made generous donations. American Legion Post 333 graciously opened the doors of its beautiful facility and magnanimously hosted this celebration. The Coral Shoes High School fife and drum team, composed of Jesus Mora, Jared Ott and Melissa Hutchinson, was awesome. Their precision marching, while playing the Marine Corps Hymn, was a spellbounding experience. State Rep. Holly Raschein, Sheriff Rick Ramsay, Judge Mark Jones and Spencer Slate were recognized for their work on behalf of veterans. Their support of the Wounded Warrior Project is of particular note. Im grateful to live in America. Im blessed to have had the honor and privilege to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps. John Donnelly Key LargoACA strains workforceThere is a host of positive elements in the Affordable Care Act. Many of them go into effect on Jan. 1 with the intent of driving down the cost of health insurance. One element, however, will do just the opposite and threatens our states ability to obtain affordable care at all. The ACA imposes a health-insurance sales tax that will increase the cost of coverage. The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates the tax will cost the nation $100 billion over the next 10 years. Over the same period, it will cost Floridians an estimated $8 billion. New bipartisan legislation proposes a twoyear delay on the tax. Its a great start. We simply need more time to find a better solution. Over its first decade, the tax projects to cost the average single Floridian between $2,115 and $2,886 in premium increases and the average Florida Medicare Advantage member, many on fixed incomes, an extra $4,181 in increased premiums and reduced benefits. Over the same period, Medicaid health-plan costs could increase $1,184, putting pressure on already strained state budgets, which could lead to decreased benefits and potentially create coverage disruption. Itll cost us jobs (nationally, by 2022, the private-sector impact could range from 146,000 to 262,000) and add a financial burden on Florida families and small businesses at a time we can least afford it. Readers should urge their congressional delegation and support the Small Business and Family Relief Act. In fact, ask them to co-sponsor it. Its our best chance at keeping the Affordable Care Act affordable for all Floridians. Michael P. Gallagher, President, CEO, AvMed Gainesville Editors note: The Joint Committee on Taxation is a nonpartisan committee, established under the Revenue Act of 1926, comprising economists, attorneys, and accountants. Its chaired on a rotating basis by the chairman of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and the chairman of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee.Thanksgiving means crowds fill the stores, but we say why rush?We remember way, way back the 1990s when Publix and Home Depot opened their doors for the first time in Marathon. For so many people, it was like a once-in-a-lifetime chance to shop. Customers lined up in front of the stores well before they opened in the morning, making sure they were able to pick up their favorite groceries in their newest supermarket or needed hardware in their newest homeimprovement store. They didnt seem to realize that Publix and Home Depot would open the next day, too. And the day after that. And the day after that. Heck, they still open every morning. Shocking, we know. The rush to shop the first days those stores opened reminds us of the so-called Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving thats considered the biggest shopping day of the year. Some people apparently dont realize that stores are open other days for gift shopping. This year, retailers have made the urge to shop even more urgent. Before youve even had a chance to finish your turkey or whatever dinner option you choose, many stores are opening up Thanksgiving day. Include Target, Walmart, Kmart and Best Buy on the list.Thats right. Apparently even Black Friday not a year goes by when some poor shopper isnt trampled to death by crowds rushing the doors isnt early enough. This also means that tens of thousands of Americans who used to have the day off on Thanksgiving now have to leave family and friends to work and contend with rabid, deal-obsessed bargain hunters. It was bad enough when retail workers did this the morning after Thanks giving while nursing a turkey hangover.This year, Thanksgiving falls on the first full day of Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights that celebrates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.Reports say the meeting up of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah hasnt happened since 1888, and that it wont happen again for 75,000 years. So naturally, the retailers and others are having a field day yet another reason to get out of the house and shop earlier. The day even has a name (who named it, we dont know) Thanksgivingukkah. Were all for celebrating the holidays any way you want and if that includes shopping before the Thanksgiving dishes are cleaned, more power to you. But maybe a better way is to take a deep breath and realize that while, yes, there are deals to be had on Thanksgiving day and on Friday, its not like store shelves will never be filled again. We highly recommend just enjoying the day off with family and friends and not battling crowds. After all, theres another Thanksgiving tradition we feel isnt worth swapping for shopping NFL football. There are games at 12:30 p.m. (Packers-Lions), 4:30 (Raiders-Cowboys) and 8:30 (Steelers-Ravens).

Wildlife biologists say Burmese pythons have decimated the mammal population in Everglades National Park and surrounding areas. Judge wont toss Reitzel caseA judge on Monday turned down a motion from the Monroe County School District asking to dismiss a lawsuit filed by former administrator Katherine Reitzel, who claims she blew the whistle on a finance scandal that brought down the superintendent and his wife. Michael Barnes, attorney for former Finance Director Reitzel, says his client is entitled to have her job and seniority returned, plus back pay and unspecified damages greater than $15,000. Reitzel had been earning $95,910 with a $2,300 supplement annually. She, along with Linda Walker, who was the districts credit card, was forced to resign in 2009 or face firing. Walker had been making $39,717 annually. With Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlins Monday decision not to toss the suit, the next step could be mediation or a trial, said Michael Burke, the districts attorney in the case. Walker also sued to get her job back, and the cases have been combined. Reitzel and Walker contend they were forced to resign or be fired in 2009. That followed as the Acevedo theft scandal thenSuperintendent Randy Acevedos wife Monique spent more than $400,000 in district money on personal goods and services was unfolding. In November 2007, Walker alerted Reitzel to irregularities with the districts credit card program, specifically, the spending of Monique, then an administrator in charge of adult education. 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 when Acevedo was charged with three felony counts of official misconduct. At trial, he was convicted and received three years of probation.Monique Acevedo is doing state prison time on theft charges. 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.Walker and Reitzel say their decisions to retire were made under duress and that they were fired in violation of the Florida Whistleblowers Act. The School District says that law doesnt apply. Walker was a 35-year employee only 10 months from retirement, while Reitzel had worked there since 2002.She claims she was forced out in Acevedo probeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBurglary report leads to drug bustPair arrested are ones who called it inCRIME FRONT Keynoter StaffWe highly recommend just enjoying the day off with family and friends and not battling crowds.

Story, 4B PREP SOCCERCanes, Conchs battle to a tieBoth Florida Keys soccer teams circled the calendar for a Jan. 8 rematch in Key West after a Friday clash in Tavernier stalled at a 2-2 tie. Key West did not see the best of us, Coral Shores head coach Jorge Bosque said. But well see them again in January. The visiting Conchs opened the scoring under the lights but Coral Shores came back on goals by forward Jack Hatfield and midfielder A.J. Paterson to take the halftime lead at 2-1. Key West tied the match on a second-half score, then both defenses settled in to make it stay that way until the end. There is no overtime in regular-season play. Justin Mock, a senior, and Spencer Hamilton, a sophomore, scored for Key Wests Conchs, now 4-2-2. Both Bosque and Key West head coach Mark Pierre credited their goalkeepers, Sal Barrios for the Canes and Christian Lee for the Conchs, for making saves on point-blank shots. Both [Key West] goals went through a lot of traffic and those are difficult to defend, Bosque said. Its up to the field defense to clear them out.The Hurricanes had two of their senior veterans, Tyler Webb and Steven Chadwick, out with injuries. Both are key to the Cane defense.Paterson played well despite an injury, the coach said. It wasnt A.J.s best game but he stepped up under the circumstances. Freshmen Josh Holper and Ed Jankowski performed solidly in their first extended varsity match, Bosque said.

The two Keys teams battled to a 2-2 tie Friday in Tavernier.Sailfish bite still strong in KeysTheres bountiful fishing to be thankful for this week the sailfish bite is coming on strong, with the best action from Duck Key to Key Largo and in Key West. It varies, though. Some days, the sailfish seem showering schools of ballyhoo and other days, its all about live-baiting from the deep edge of the reef out to 150 feet of water. Live ballyhoo are the bait of choice, but cigar minnows, pilchards and goggle eyes will all work just fine. Snapper fishing on the reef remains very good, with excellent yellowtail action up and down the Keys in a wide range of depths, although the most consistent is 50 to 60 feet. There are also some king and cero mackerel on the reef edge being taken by anglers fishing live ballyhoo or live pilchards back in their yellowtail slick. The grouper bite is still sporadic on the deeper reef, although the cooling temperatures expected later in the week should spur on this action. Up on the patches, there are plenty of keeper-size yellowtails and really hefty mangroves. And were starting to see more legal red grouper prowling these areas. Cero mackerel are there, too, if youre looking to load your smoker. The best baits are live pinfish, pilchards or ballyhoo fished on jig heads. Mangrove fishing around the bridges is coming on strong. These are great areas to hide when the wind is blowing and still put a respectable catch together. Small live pinfish, pilchards or live shrimp work well.Out in the bay in the Middle Keys, we are beginning to see increased numbers of Spanish mackerel. As always, there are plenty of mangroves, and the shallower wrecks are offering nice gag groupers. Shrimp and small live pinfish are the ticket.The crew at SeaSquared Charters wishes you a bountiful Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, food and fishing.The weeks bestCapt.

The Conchs, who were down, 24-8, after the first quarter, trailed at the half, 4124, and scored only six points in the second half. The loss spoiled the debut of coach Tony McDowell, who took over the boys team after coaching the girls varsity last season. We couldnt make shots, McDowell said.Key West had been depending on Daniel Thompson, who had a great 2012-13 season, scoring 32 points in a game against Coral Shores. But because of an unsettled family situation, Thompson recently moved to Tampa to live with a cousin. A huge loss, but thats how it is in life, McDowell said. He called us the day of the game and said he wished he could be with us. The Conchs were led Friday by guard Chase Renner, who had nine points (six on 3-point shots). Luis Acosta-Perez had seven, Anthony Cromwell scored five points, Lanre Scott had three and Michael Stern, Nathaniel Hayes and Garrett Osteen each had two. Key West made only seven of 35 field-goal attempts and was 14-of-24 from the foul line. Still, McDowell said, I think well be a good team.Acosta-Perez, a leader-type who will play power forward, and Scott, who had scoring bursts last season, are returning starters.

He wrestled well, said coach Chaz Jimenez. He was a step above everyone else and didnt have a tough match.Key West went 5-4 in the two-day event, behind North Port (9-0), host Naples Lely (8-1) and Park Vista (7-2). On Friday, the Conchs defeated Cape Coral, 52-27, and Port Charlotte, 80-12, and lost to Barron Collier, 46-33, and Lely, 42-31. On Saturday, they defeated Mariner, 45-31, Estero, 4337, and Fort Myers, 46-33, and lost to North Port, 56-15, and Park Vista, 46-36. Freshman Nick Piraino, whom Jimenez calls a fiery little kid, was underweight but still went 8-1 at 106, losing only to a New Port junior. Another freshman, 120-pound Joseph Casasola, was 4-1. Caleb Ashe, who wrestled at both 126 and 132, also was 8-1. Others with winning records were Tyler Jones, 6-3 at 138; John Pozzi, 6-3 at 195; and Kenneth Sagan who, despite a bothersome shoulder, was 5-3 at 220. Dylan Burke, who weighs 245 pounds, made his debut in the 285 class, showing promise despite a 2-7 record. Even though the Conchs were without two of their top wrestlers, Uriel Diaz and John Piraino, Jimenez said, We probably should have been in the top two.

Despite repeatedly falling victim to their frustrating offside trap, the Marathon High School boys soccer team made quick work of District 16-1A rival Westwood Christian School on Friday.The Dolphins earned a mercy-rule 8-0 victory, scoring the games final goal roughly 15 minutes into the second half.Marathon coach Jim Murphy said it was definitely one-sided but that his players were overly excited to generate scoring opportunities.We probably broke a school record of being offside in 17 times in one half, he said. Their coach definitely taught them how to play an offside trap that we kept on kicking it through. As much as they realized they were going offside, they were getting too anxious to score.Freshman Gaby Gonzalez scored the Dolphins first goal at the 6:00 mark on his way to a hat trick. Marathon added goals in the 7th and 8th minutes and led 6-0 at the half.Junior Raymond Crespo scored twice, while Frankie Gonzalez and Sammie Zambrano each had one goal. After the break, Murphy said the team made a more consistent effort to avoid the trap and control the field.Instead of us trying to kick it down the field and score, we started passing and moving the ball around, he said.The Dolphins are off until Dec. 2 for the Thanksgiving break.

The Dolphins new coach has been harping on the girls to up their percentage at the foul line, and they responded with a stellar performance in a 55-41 victory over Archbishop Carroll High School in Miami. Im pretty excited. The girls are excited and playing hard every game, Klaus said. Theyre starting to put some thing together. JohnNisha Qualls led the Dolphins with 26 points, while Gardine Raymond had 11, Yailin Nieda 10, Wellever four and Jessica Mojica two. The Dolphins made easy work of the Bulldogs, building a comfortable halftime lead and going up by as many as 28 points in the third quarter. In the fourth, Klaus put her younger players in to gain playing experience and Carroll closed the gap to 13 by games end. The win pushes Marathon to a solid 3-1 start, all while learning to adapt to Klaus up-tempo style of basketball. Klaus knew the team would be a work in progress to start the season, but theyve played well early on. We still havent had a whole lot of practices because weve been playing, but were working, she said. The Dolphins are off for Thanksgiving break until a scheduled Dec. 3 visit to Palmer Trinity School at 5:30 p.m. The team is slated to host rival Key West High on Dec. 4 at 5:30 p.m.Free throws no problem in 55-41 victoryBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON GIRLS HOOPSDolphins overpower rebuilding CarrollThe Marathon High School boys basketball team on Friday must have felt like it was visiting a different Archbishop Carroll High School than it did last season. The Bulldogs turned over their entire 2012-13 roster 10 to graduation and two to transfer and head coach from a team that held the Dolphins scoreless for the entire second half of last years 64-14 loss. The mass exodus was evident, as Marathon handily defeated the Bulldogs, 64-33. All five Dolphins starters scored during the first quarter as they built a 16-4 lead. The Dolphins held a comfortable 31-14 lead at the half, but coach Kevin Freeman said the situation was unfamiliar to the team. I think we got a little complacent. We dont get many opportunities to turn the screws on another team, so we have to play hard the entire game, he said. The team did just that in the third quarter, outscoring the Bulldogs 19-7 and building a 50-22 lead. Nelson Rojas scored nine points during what was Marathons highest-scoring quarter of the season. Rojas finished with a game-high 17 points and had five assists and four rebounds. Damian Chavez had 14 points and three steals, while Shemar Fantroy and Jonathan Guerra each scored eight. The entire roster saw playing time during the fourth quarter as the Dolphins experimented with different defensive formations. Freeman said it was a solid team effort. We switched up defenses and rebounded pretty well, he said. We got 19 offensive rebounds, which is big for us, and converted on probably half of them.

Coral Shores High School held a four-point lead heading into the last quarter of their boys basketball opener, but visiting Archbishop Curley spoiled it with 20-point surge to win, 62-58, Friday.We came out with a lot of intensity but didnt capitalize on it as much as we should have, head coach Bruce Teachey said.The Canes powered to a 14-7 first quarter behind freshman point guard Shaka Smiths 10 points and two strong buckets in the paint by senior center Anthony Rice. But Curleys Knights recovered to lead at halftime, 34-30.Smith ended with 18 points and Rice had 15 as both made their court debut as Hurricanes. Richard Jacobsen scored 10 points, and Brian Cash added seven. Danny Whisted and Emmanuel Morales each scored three points. The good was that we played to the end without no give-up, Teachey said. On the other side, our zone defense was pretty poor, and we didnt run a single set play on offense. Were working on that.Cash and Rice each had six points in the third quarter as the Canes built a 46-42 lead. Curley started its late binge and grabbed the lead. Rice blocked a Curley shot and Cash converted on the other end for the Canes last lead, at 56-54, with two minutes left.Curley answered with a bucket and free throw for a one-point lead at 1:40, and pushed it to a five-point edge with time running out. Morales forced a steal and fed Rice for a layup to draw within three points, but two late shots from beyond the arc by the Canes missed.Its going to take us a while to gel, Teachey said. But we have to learn the hard way with Gulliver Prep and Ransom Everglades on deck. Well play our game, try to keep our heads up and see what we can do in the back half of the season, he said.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Wednesday, November 27, 2013 LivingHammer(head) timeEven students at the small Florida Keys Community College can compete with larger educational institutions when it comes to technology.That was proven Thursday, when a team comprising students Ricardo Castro Perez, Jarrett Clark and Justin Gabbard performed better than their counterparts at three larger schools in a project designed to prove they could create a submersible thats able to find underwater explosives.The Keys team went against teams from Florida Atlantic University, Georgia Tech, North Carolina A&T and the Stevens Institute of Tech nology from Hoboken, N.J.They participated in a program called Perseus, a twosemester Department of Defense program that challenges students to create an underwater vehicle capable of locating and analyzing simulated explosives 40 feet beneath the waters surface. The colleges Stock Island dive lagoon provided the location for the tests.At first, the Keys team seemed at a relative disadvantage since it comprised three freshman and sophomore students in the non-engineering disciplines of computer science, marine environmental technology and diving.The other teams, college spokeswoman Amber ErnstLeonard said, comprised juniors and seniors majoring in fields like electrical, mechanical and ocean engineering. The Keys team initially designed a submersible device, but water-proofing, buoyancy control and engineering for agile navigation presented many challenges. We abandoned that concept about two weeks ago and went with the wind, said dive student Justin Gabbard. The team opted for a simpler surface-skimming design with aboveand below-water components. The upper section provides propulsion, geospatial information, altitude placement, Gabbard said. The lower section combines highand low-definition video with imaging sonar that provides target identification.The device is steered via a wireless navigation system from a laptop computer that displays live images and location data. Upon discovery of an object, the students can direct their device, called Hammerhead, to descend its lower unit for closer investigation and analysis.Thursday, each team was allotted 45 minutes to locate simulated unexploded explosives of various shapes and sizes that were strewn throughout the dive lagoon by the U.S. Navys Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit. When all was said and done, Hammerhead located three explosives during the exercise. Only one other team, from the Stevens Institute of Technology, was able to equal that. It was a team effort, Gabbard said. Our programmer, Ricardo is the genius; he programmed it. Jarrett and I built it, wired it and sunk it. Each student earned four college credits for their participation.Student teams submersible bests othersKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEFlorida Keys Community Colleges Hammerhead descends into the dive lagoon.
