Story, 4A New mainland shelter for KeysFlorida Keys residents who wont leave their pets when a hurricane evacuation is ordered now have a mainland shelter at a Miami-Dade County fairground. The large building also can accommodate several hundred people, pet owners or not, evacuating from Monroe County during a major storm. This building has been opened as a pet-friendly shelter in the past but no one [from the Keys] ever showed, Monroe County Emergency Management Director Irene Toner said Friday.On Wednesday in Marathon, Monroe County commissioners are expected to approve an agreement with Miami-Dade County and the managing company of the Miami-Dade County Fair and Expo Grounds for partial use of a huge, storm-hardened building on the site when needed for those fleeing a storm (hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30).The pact would guarantee space at the E. Darwin Fuchs Pavilion, also known as the Sunshine Pavilion, for 350 people and 150 pets. The warehouse-like building covering 49,000 square feet is used for fair exhibits and other events throughout the year. It offers bathrooms and a food-service area but few other amenities beyond walls designed to withstand 170 mph winds.We have never had more than 350 people going to the county shelter at Florida International University, Toner said.

Story, 3A By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comNumbers belie Southwests justificationMonroe Countys airports director is stumped as to why Dallas-based Southwest Airlines will stop daily service to Key West from Tampa, Orlando and New Orleans effective June 7. The numbers have been very good here, Peter Horton said.Southwest started serving Key West International Airport in December following its takeover of carrier AirTran.Southwest Executive Vice President and Chief Com mercial Officer Bob Jordan said in a prepared statement that unfortunately, the level of local demand no longer allows Southwest to profitably serve these markets.Digging into the numbers, Horton said thats not the case.From January through October, 86,587 passengers left Key West on Southwest, Horton says, and another 83,169 arrived. That totals 169,756 Southwest customers for the first 10 months of the year. Southwest had 137,654 passengers come through Key West in 2012. For comparison, in 2012, Delta carried 230,069 passengers in and out of Key West and American another 192,408 passengers. In 2012 on all carriers, 741,799 passengers came through Key West International, up from 677,581 in 2011. Horton says the airport is on track to top the 2012 passenger count by the end of the year. Silver Airways, a corporate partner with JetBlue, offers daily round trips from Key West to Tampa, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. Along with its Key West service, Southwest will end operations at Jackson [Miss.] Evers International Airport and Branson [Mo.] Airport.Airline ending Key West flights this coming JuneBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comAVIATIONBridge traffic slows to 25 mphA crash early Tuesday morning among three semitractor trailer trucks was powerful enough to damage one of the Keys longest bridges. The Florida Department of Transportation has lowered the speed limit on the Long Key Bridge from 45 mph to 25 mph on 4,000 feet of the 2.2-mile bridge while repairs are being made, said DOT spokesman Dean Walters.The impact of the three big rigs gouged the bridge surface with such force that it dislodged some concrete, exposing some of the bridges reinforcing steel, Walters said. Its not clear how long the repairs will take. The process to obtain a qualified contractor to make the necessary repairs is being expedited, Walters said. Three men were injured and the Long Key Bridge was shut down for more than eight hours Tuesday when the trucks crashed into each other at mile marker 63 of U.S. 1.The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash was a byproduct of ongoing construction on the bridge. The collision shut down U.S. 1 both northbound and southbound from 2:30 a.m. to around 10:45.Truck crash damages span with forceON U.S. 1Keynoter StaffSee Bridge, 2ASee Southwest, 2AOutlook grim for remaining stranded whalesWhat started out as tepid optimism for the fate of a pod of stranded short-finned pilot whales turned sour Friday as the day wore on. Marine-mammal rescuers tracking the pod in western mainland Monroe County Friday morning lost sight of about 24 of the animals, which could have meant the animals were making their way to deep water, their natural habitat.But later in the day, U.S. Coast Guard air crews spotted about 20 whales about 5 nautical miles off a remote Everglades National Park beach. The whales were moving south and toward shore. They were about a mile nearer the beach than the ones spotted the day before.The whales were moving very, very slowly in about 10 to 12 feet of water, said Blair Mase, a marine mammal stranding coordinator with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.This was a significant change in behavior from the type exhibited by a pod of about 35 pilot whales seen by the Coast Guard Thursday.Those whales were in about 12 feet of water and moving quickly offshore near Seminole Pointe on Plover Key, Mase said. Rescuers were cautiously optimistic the whales were swimming to the deep water about 20 miles west into the Gulf of Mexico. They had a straight shot to their normal home range and they didnt take it, Mase said. The 20 whales included a group of about seven mammals spotted a few miles southwest of Plover Key swimming in about 14 feet of water earlier Friday. These whales did not appear to be moving quickly in any direction, Mase said.Possibility is that they end up in KeysBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comOUR ENVIRONMENT Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESS/NAPLES DAILY NEWSPeople in a state law enforcement boat lean over to view one of the whales that stranded.

shelter for people leaving the Keys during a hurricane evacuation. When that agreement expired last spring, FIU administrators said it was time for Monroe County to look elsewhere. The universitys student population has doubled from just over 20,000 students [in 1992] to approximately 50,000 today, FIU Senior Vice President Kenneth Jessell said last May.The Primera Casa building, where Monroe residents have been evacuated to in the past, today has very little resemblance to the building of 20 years ago, Jessell said. Primera Casa has classrooms, administrative offices, faculty offices and labs that are used extensively seven days a week.FIUs Recreation Center remains the relocation center for Monroes special-needs patients. But the university did not want to commit to taking in potentially large numbers of Monroes general population evacuees, who might stay for several days in a worst-case scenario. The pavilion at the fairgrounds, on Southwest 24th Street, has several notable advantages. It is very close to Monroe Countys previous shelter at FIU, lies just off Floridas Turnpike. Monroe County emergency planners want to have a definite destination for up to 3,000 Keys residents if a major storm should threaten the islands. The county may have to seek several evacuation shelters rather than a single main one, Toner said. Monroe County has not called a mandatory evacuation of residents since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. In an extreme situation, Floridas governor can order state-owned buildings, like those on a university campus, to open their doors to storm evacuees. Plover Key is about 10 miles north of where the original pod of about 51 whales was spotted Tuesday, a remote stretch of coast called Highland Beach. It is on the Gulf of Mexico side of Everglades National Park. Mase said its possible the whales could end up in the Keys if they keep on their trajectory. Rescuers do not plan to try hearding the whales to steer them further out to sea because they are likely exhausted, dehydrated and malnourished.On Thursday, the surviving pods were seen about 6 miles off Plover Key, traveling in a northwesterly direction, Mase said. Water there is about 18 feet deep, far from the depths short-finned pilot whales are used to inhabiting.As of Friday, 11 whales had died seven were found dead during the week by federal, state and volunteer marine mammal teams. Veterinarians had to euthanize four others because their health was in such poor condition.NOAA scientists and veterinarians, National Park Service rangers, Coast Guard crews and volunteers were unable to account for six of the whales that survived the initial stranding. What were thought to be two short-finned pilot whales right off Plover Key turned out to be dolphins.Wednesday, Mase said it seemed unlikely any of the whales would survive. The outlook improved Thursday, but Mase said anything could happen, including the whales turning around and beaching themselves again. The situation could go either way, Mase said during a press conference Thursday afternoon. A similar situation played out in the mid-1990s, she said, when stranded whales last seen making their way out to sea ended up beached in the Keys days later. Scientists are performing necropsies on the dead whales on location to get a better idea what caused them to die and what caused the pod to beach itself.The whales were first spotted about 200 yards off Highland Beach, an extremely isolated section of western Everglades National Park. The surviving whales were swimming in as little 3 feet of water.Happy endings are rare among pilot whale strandings, which are not unusual. What makes saving them particularly difficult is the tight bonds they form they dont like to leave behind their dead and sick. This means that if people can heard the healthy whales and direct them back out to sea, the mammals often return when they realize some of their pod remained in the shallows.Outlook not goodFrom Whales, 1A KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday, December 7, 2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW SAT.8373 SUN.8375 MON.8375 TUES.8375 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers.KeysInfoNet.com/weatherfor radar and extended forecast.The Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

Marine debris is not just ugly; it is dangerous. Discarded debris damages habitat by breaking or smothering important ecosystems such as coral reefs. Debris in the ocean is often difficult to see and can cause damage to vessels. Derelict fishing gear continues to catch fish and other animals. Marine debris is often mistaken by wildlife for food and can lead to starvation and death. The most graphic impact is entanglement of wildlife such as seabirds, whales and turtles resulting in injury, illness, suffocation, starvation and death.

Thats when Angel Velazquez, 36, of Miami, behind the wheel of a 2007 Freighter, slammed into Morales truck. In turn, Morales truck was shoved into Lougheeds truck.Velazquez, given a ticket for careless driving, was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami while Morales and Lougheed were treated at Fishermens Community Hospital in Marathon.Emergency-services personnel dealt with a fuel spill. It also took hours to remove the three trucks from the road. Troopers estimated combined damage to the trucks was $31,500.

Southwest spokesman Dan Landson said company policy requires both a primary and secondary VASI be online for a landing. I dont know that the two are connected, Horton says of the equipment failure and Southwests decision. They have had issues with their protocols landing on a short runway so theyve cancelled the most flights, of operators flying into Key West.Airline pulling outFrom Southwest, 1A Burnett remains hospitalized in MiamiClyde Burnett, a former Marathon city manager and Key Colony Beach mayor, remained in the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami Friday, apparently having no feeling in his body from the neck down following a fall in Marathon on Nov. 30.From what Ive been told, they did a surgery but they cant do some things because they cant stabilize him, said current Key Colony Mayor Ron Sutton, also that citys administrator. It doesnt look good at all at this point. He has a broken neck. They still cannot get him stabilized, said Tucker DeGraw, a longtime friend of Burnett whos active in the Key Colony Beach Association. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says it received a 911 call at 9:33 a.m. Nov. 30 from the Indigo Reef vacation rental resort in Marathon on 1st Avenue bayside. Since he left his Marathon manager job in 2009 after resigning 18 months into it, he had managed Indigo Reef, built by developer Pritam Singh during the housing boom of the late 2000s. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Burnett who didnt make the 911 call himself was found on the ground at Indigo Reef, bleeding. He was flown to Ryder by the LifeNet air ambulance because the countys TraumaStar helicopter was on another mission.Former mayor and manager injured in fallMIDDLE KEYS BURNETTKeynoter StaffCounty tries burning yard wasteTons of yard waste could go up in flames at a Ramrod Key site if Monroe County commissioners sign off on a pilot program for incineration.Were looking at this as a way to save residents money on the cost of shipping foliage and other cuttings to a mainland site, said Rhonda Haag, sustainability manager for Monroe County.If all goes as planned, the first year of using the walled air-curtain burner to incinerate up to 10,000 tons of yard waste annually could cut county costs by $250,000. Rudy Krause Construc tion of Cudjoe Key plans to install a unit from Air Burner Inc. at its Ramrod Key site, north of U.S. 1 on the west side of the island. About the size of a semitrailer, the unit uses a fan system to create a curtain of air that traps and contains smoke from the burning debris inside the unit.Monroe County now pays $84.50 per ton to haul all of its garbage, including yard waste, to a waste-to-energy plant in Broward County.The Ramrod Key incinerator will not produce energy but would reduce the countys disposal cost to $60 per ton. Krause also will attempt to mulch some of the yard waste for sale or re-use.A two-year contract to begin operations within about three months pending expected approval from the Department of Environmental Protection is on the commissions Wednesday meeting agenda at the Marathon Government Center.At Novembers commission meeting, board members generally liked the idea of reducing haul-out costs for easily burned yard waste. No commercial or household garbage will be taken to the Lower Keys incinerator.We dont know how well its going to work, Haag said. Its a pilot project, so we need to find out if it works for everyone. If it doesnt work, we dont do it long-term.If approved, Lower Keys residents would be required to separate yard waste from their garbage, something not required of them now. Middle and Upper Keys residents already have separate yard-waste pickups.County staff also is considering putting an air-curtain incinerator on Key Largo.In other items at Wed nesdays commission meeting, which starts at 9 a.m.:At 11 a.m., state Depart ment of Transportation officials will give an update of the agencys five-year plan for Monroe County projects.At 1:30 p.m., commissioners will hear from Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority staff on estimated costs of switching more Lower Keys neighborhoods from lowpressure grinder pumps to gravity sewer systems.Commissioners will review a plan to hire two new employees to handle billing for Monroe Countys ground and air ambulance transport. Firerescue managers believe staff can do a better effective job than the international collections company handling it now. Costs are estimated to be similar, around $121,000 annually. Commissioners asked staff to see if the employees could be hired under a contract rather than added as career staff.Pilot program could be up in 3 monthsCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com THE PORTER-ALLEN COMPANYINSURANCE Elizabeth M.

Monroe County Commis sioner George Neugent says a plan is officially in place, with tweaked numbers, to save part of the iconic old Seven Mile Bridge off Marathon. Neugent said the state Department of Transportation has agreed to spend roughly $57.2 million over 30 years and that its now up to the Monroe County Commission and Marathon City Council to seal the deal.DOT has accepted our offer and itll be up to the County Commission to accept the deal. If they do, we have a deal, he said.According to figures prepared by County Administrator Roman Gastesi, the county would pitch in $15 million over 30 years and the city of Marathon $5.34 million.The initial estimate for renovating the 2.2-mile span leading from Marathon to Pigeon Key, which would include fixing the decking and railings, among other things, was $66 million. The overall $77.5 million figure includes maintenance, two paintings and a new Pigeon Key ramp.Total cost factors in $6.21 million over 30 years for annual maintenance costs, $21.34 million to paint the bridge after 15 and 30 years, and $720,000 to repair the ramp.Gastesi said the county would cover the annual maintenance, the ramp and half the second $10.67 million paint job. The city of Marathon would cover the other half of the second paint job.Gastesi said he plans to discuss the old Seven Mile Bridge project at the commissions monthly meeting Wednesday in Marathon. This is all conceptual and [the DOT is] writing up a draft and giving it to us on Monday. All were asking the commission is if this is doable. Its not a final decision, he said. Neugent said an interlocal agreement between Monroe and the city of Marathon would have to be worked out, but that the original agreement would be between the county and DOT. The county and state negotiated back and forth, but eventually settled on numbers similar to what Gastesi proposed last week. The difference is that the county agreed to pitch in an additional $2.7 million for the first of two paint jobs. That money was set aside in June when the county set its $57 million five-year capitalimprovement plan. Neugent said the goal would be to have other stakeholders, such as the Pigeon Key Foundation or nonprofit Friends of Old Seven, contribute funds to the cause, as well as exploring other revenue opportunities. Theres some big numbers and we have to be realistic and fair. Of course, bedtax dollars through the [Monroe County Tourist Development Council] is another source of revenue that could be used, he said. Neugent also said officials could explore a small toll of $1 or less to go on the bridge, or a possible referendum creating a local taxing district to fund repairs.Even though its a countywide asset that will benefit our overall economy, lets see what the interest is here in Marathon to support the bridge. I certainly would throw $100 per year into the pot to save Old Seven, he said. Marathon Mayor Dick Ramsay said hes confident the project could move forward with the proposed numbers.City Manager Roger Hernstadt has polled the council and to the best of my knowledge theyre potentially on aboard. In my opinion, were very close to a deal and I think its ... going to go through on the commission, he said.

On Friday, nine students received pins to memorialize their completion of the colleges 22-month Nursing and Allied Health program, making them eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination and begin working in health care. Director of Nursing Nancy Gallagher told the graduates: Nothing compares to nursing school. You have worked harder, slept less and cried more. She summed up nursing as a career as selflessly giving of yourself to others in need. Nursing will always be good to you provided that you never, ever, ever stop learning.College President Jonathan Gueverra, paraphrasing Nelson Mandela, the Nobel Peace laureate credited with ending apartheid in South Africa and who died Thursday, told the graduates, Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change society.The nine graduates are Mikhail Barabanshchikov, Chelsea Broadrick, Natalie Leonard, Kelly McGarry, Norllys Milanes, Melissa Mott, Melissa Roberts, Laura VanSant and Jessica Vasquez. Meanwhile, on Nov. 26, the college had a double graduation ceremony for students that completed the Basic Law Enforcement Academy and Corrections Academy.Upon passing their respective state certification exams, the 19 Basic Law Enforce ment Academy graduates are eligible to work in that field; same goes for the six Corrections Academy grads.College spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said all graduates of the Corrections Academy have secured employment as detention deputies at one of the three Keys jails.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comHIGHER EDUCATION

After a ceremonial October groundbreaking, contractor D.L. Porter has mobilized equipment and filed a partial permit application ahead of starting construction on a new $5.6 million fire station in Old Town Key West.The move to rebuild Fire Station no. 2 at 525 Angela St. dates back to at least 1996 and then-City Commissioner Jeremy Anthony. Commis sioner Billy Wardlow, a former Key West fire chief, took on the cause with his election in 2009.It was stalled for a long time, Wardlow said, but now, were moving along with it and Im very happy were getting started. I want to thank city staff for pushing it along. Ill still spend the night on the first night there. City Construction Coordinator Terrence Justice assured commissioners at their meeting Tuesday that they will start seeing some activity at the site very soon. He said staff is working with architect Michael Ingram of mbi/k2m and the contractor on an elevator to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, a foundation design to support back-up generators, precast concrete elements, and the litany of permitting. A partial permit application was filed on Wednesday with the citys Building Department. To the contractors credit, Justice said, D.L. Porter has been extremely proactive in getting ahead.

The Mosquito Control Board on Wednesday unanimously approved purchasing a vacant Big Coppitt Key lot located on U.S. 1 near mile marker 10. Its on the bayside between a Habitat for Humanity affordable housing project and the Key West Auto Web used car lot.Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle is authorized to spend a maximum of $779,000, the listing price for the 1.25-acre lot, but will try to negotiate a lower price.Operations Director Andrea Leal told the board the lot is zoned suburban-commercial and would likely need to be changed to industrial. Final purchase would be contingent on the zoning change from Monroe County.We have a letter drafted to the county with what were looking at as far as square footage, our storage facility and office space, and meeting with [Planning Department Director Townsley Schwab] to get all of our questions answered, Leal said.Comptroller Bruce Holden performed a costbenefit analysis of the new location based on where various inspectors would drive to and from during working hours in district vehicles. He estimated the move would cost the district $11,000 per year in additional fuel costs, a figure Chairman Bill Shaw called negligible. Fellow board members agreed. The board agreed there would be no discussion about the exact square footage or design of the building until a zoning change is secured. It could be complicated by the district storing chemicals on the site.Either way, the board has long appeared ready to cut ties with its longtime Stock Island headquarters. The city of Key West-owned building on College Road is being targeted as part of a potential 24-hour homeless shelter complex.We wont be sinking $500,000 into repairing [that] building and we wont have landlords down the road, which is even nicer, Commissioner Steve Smith said.Shaw instructed staff to find out about placing temporary trailers on the Big Coppitt lot should the district vacate Stock Island before the new building is erected.If we vote to buy this piece of property, then we have to decide on what building and what it includes and get architects and drawings. Were looking at two or three years down the road, he said. The districts 35-year lease with the city was set to expire in May 2014. At its Nov. 6 meeting, the Key West City Commission agreed to extend the $1-per-year lease through at least Jan. 15, 2015, to give the district more time to prepare for a move.The city has been clear that it has no interest in selling the property to Mosquito Control and all but ruled out a long-term lease for the property.Staff would move from Stock IslandMOSQUITO CONTROLBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFinal purchase would be contingent on the zoning change from Monroe County.

The Key West City Commission on Tuesday, deciding to stick with phased development for the 33-acre Truman Waterfront, turned down a $170,000 stop-gap measure that would have reprioritized construction of a new play field on the property.The 5-1 vote, with item sponsor Commissioner Tony Yaniz against and Commis sioner Mark Rossi absent, was to postpone indefinitely.Key West proper has one full-sized soccer field and another half-size field at Poinciana Elementary School in New Town.Theres a third large field on the Bahama Village side of the Truman Waterfront but it was meant to be temporary and doesnt have an irrigation system, so heavy use has rendered it unusable for sports. Yaniz wants to restore that field and add an irrigation system, which was expected to take about three months. The phased development of the Truman Waterfront into a destination park already includes construction of a multi-use field slated for Phase 3 in 2017. City Manager Bob Vitas told commissioners that its possible to juggle the components, and field construction is predicated on demolishing the sites former U.S. Navy mess hall, used now by the Police Athletic League.Weve got a plan, Commissioner Teri Johnston said. Id like to work the plan. I think its very dangerous for us to pick and choose and prioritize features of this park based on individual needs.In an exchange with city Planning Director Don Craig, Yaniz unsuccessfully pushed for a firm timeline on future field construction.Let me just clarify for the record, youre saying, sir, we could have kids playing on that field in a year? he asked Craig, who responded, We could have the field in place.With kids playing on it, Yaniz broke in, for the record. Sir, Craig said, I dont have the schedule in front of me. Im not going to agree. That would be premature and foolish of me. Heres the bottom line, Yaniz said. If we approve $170,000 to refurbish this park, we can have kids playing on it in 90 days. I think thats what the people of this community want. Give the kids a place to play. Tom Coward, commissioner of Key Wests chapter of the American Youth Soccer Organization, said theres a critical shortage of field space in Key West. We do have issues here, he said. The need has been identified. If its three or four years [before the Truman Waterfront field is built], $170,000 isnt too bad to get it done in 90 days. Its not money thats poorly spent. Its investing in our kids. The AYSO in Key West has around 710 school-age kids and 200 adults; the season ends on Dec. 7. I know its kind of turned around here, if you dont vote for this you dont support kids in Key West, Mayor Craig Cates said. He called that notion ridiculous.

Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESToday is Pearl Harbor Day the day set aside to remember the Dec. 7, 1941, attack by Japan at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The following day, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called it a date which will live in infamy the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the empire of Japan. Here at Key West International Airport in November 1987, planes painted as Japanese Zero fighters are on display during the Key West Air Show.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALNot all doom with loss of SouthwestLETTERS TO THE EDITORBridge fix can be cheaperI just finished reading your article about the 2.3-mile section of the old Seven Mile Bridge to Pigeon Key $66.1 million for bridge repair and upkeep over the next 30 years. Hmmm. Somewhere along the way, a wise man said to me that it is easy to be generous with other peoples money. This seems to be a very good example. Doing some simple math over an easy dinner, I calculated that we could keep a crew of 44 working 40 hour weeks every year for 30 years at a salary of $50,000 a year (double the average Marathon salary). I know my detractors will say that there are materials and equipment and tools and barges and boats and environmental protection concerns and inflation that need to be factored in. So we cut the crew to 22 (thats still a lot of orange vests) and we have a $1 millionplus a year for equipment and supply considerations. Do we need that big a crew? Will they really work 40 hours a week and 50 weeks a year just on the bridge? I dont think so.Your article states, According to county records, the county paid $779,530 in fiscal year 2011-12 to maintain Higgs Beach in Key West and $710,135 on the Key Largo Community Park, and then a comparison is drawn that this section of bridge functions more as a park than as a highway. I agree that it is more park than highway. But what I gleaned from this info is that perhaps we are also overpaying to have those parks maintained. And I wonder how much it costs per user of these parks to maintain them is there any data on that? And is a park-to-park comparison the best way to decide if the price we are paying is giving us good bang for our buck?I would urge our leaders to do more than just crunch numbers and instead take a look inside this contract and see what we are getting for our $66 million (I understand it is a combined city, county and state Department of Transportation contribution). It seems to be a ton of money to me and I would happily do it for half that amount. Have your people call my people. Consistent overspending has gotten us to where we are and I dont think anyone really likes where we are. Just saying. Brett Lehigh Key Colony BeachAirline says the numbers dont allow continued Key West flightsSome travelers used to using Southwest Airlines at Key West International Airport feel like the sky has fallen this week. It hasnt but air service into and out of the airport did take a hit. Southwests Key West service connects with Tampa, Orlando and New Orleans. Thursday, the Dallas-based carrier said that as of June 7, its pulling out of Key West, giving travelers one less alternative at an airfield that doesnt have many itll leave just Delta, American and Silver Airways among commercial carriers. Airline officials say they made their decision because local demand no longer allows Southwest to make money in Key West. Strange, considering that Southwest, while not the No. 1 Key West airline in terms of passengers flown, appears pretty healthy in the Southernmost City. County airports chief Peter Horton says the first 10 months of this year, 86,587 passengers left Key West on Southwest while 83,169 arrived for a total of 169,756 passengers. Thats more than all of 2012, when Southwest had 137,654 passengers arrive at or leave through Key West.Many Lower Keys residents (anecdotally) use the Key West airport more than their neighbors up the Keys, who generally fly out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale. So they will have to decide come summer whether to bite the monetary bullet and pay more to fly in and out of Key West on another airline, or make the long drive (and invest in the gas and tolls) to a mainland airfield.But they should keep this in mind: While Key West is losing one flying option Horton surely will try lure a replacement those who used to commercially fly in and out of Marathon lost all options many years ago. The last commercial airline to have regular service at Florida Keys Marathon Airport was Delta, which county officials worked hard to woo. But in 2007, Delta bailed after just five months flying to and from Atlanta. It was a stab in the back to the community, which had received promises of a long relationship, and which welcomed the first Delta flight with great fanfare firehoses providing a waterborne canopy as the plane rolled up to the terminal, a party at the terminal itself, and gifts and food for the passengers.The same year, Cape Air killed its seasonal service between Marathon and Fort Myers after the Marathon City Council refused to provide an annual subsidy (the County Commission voted in favor of paying a subsidy).In fact, the last time viable air service existed at Marathon was back when the current terminal opened in 1994 at a cost of $7 million. Flying into and out of the airport then were American Eagle, US Airways and Gulfstream. Lots of choices. Now, none.Marathon survived, and Horton has since said Marathon with more overall flights than Key West annually will never be viable for commercial air service.Key West is different its a much wider-known destination. And despite Southwest pulling out, air service there remains an option. Lets hope Horton can get a replacement for Southwest, giving the flying public even more options.Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThe Marathon end of the old Seven Mile Bridge goes out to historic Pigeon Key. Its been closed to autos and fishing for years because state officials worry the span is too dilapidated for such continued uses. On the right, the support group Friends of Old Seven has set up an informational booth. Solution needed for kidsThe Nov. 3 Miami Herald editorial (reprinted in the Nov. 6 Keynoter ) Abuse, child deaths continue, says that in the wake of the deaths of 25 children known by the Florida Department of Children and Families to be potentially at risk, the agency should declare immediately that DCFs policy of keeping families together no matter what, it seems can no longer be its overriding policy if children in mortal danger are to be rescued from their abusers.There is no doubt that DCF needs desperately to revamp its child protection system, as there is no excuse for a single death of a child where there are red flags known to DCF investigators. However, the best practice is to always try to keep children in their homes if it can be done so safely. DCF interim Secretary Esther Jacobo has agreed that its current risk assessment instrument used to determine which children are truly at risk is flawed. Further, there is little evidence in many of the recent deaths that DCF and its community partners implemented protective services, including intensive case management. With appropriate help and support, many families will be able to safely care for their children when they are watched closely to see if such services address the problems. For others, the risk may be too high, and these children must immediately be protected by being placed in the supervision of DCF and its community partners. However, lets not forget that just over 10 years ago, some 50,000 children were in DCFs care. Some children were being harmed by physical and sexual abuse in an overcrowded, dysfunctional foster system. Other children were stuck in this system for many years and endured the permanent scars of emotional neglect. There were others like Rilya Wilson and 400 other children who were lost or missing. Somewhere in between the family and the system there must be a workable solution appropriately funded by Floridas Legislature where children are protected and the state does not become the parent to 50,000 children that it cannot care for without neglecting or re-abusing them. Howard M. Talenfeld President and founder Floridas Children First Fort LauderdaleRules plans on tableFuture management plans for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and Biscayne National Park will dominate two Florida Keys meetings this week.On Tuesday, the Sanctuary Advisory Council holds a daylong session at the Islander Resort of Islamorada, mile marker 82.The advisory council, comprising residents with an interest in rules of the 2,900square-mile area, is working to develop its recommendations for the sanctuarys new management plan. The plan hasnt been updated since 1997.Those rules could include changes to existing marine managed areas, like Sanctuary Preservation Areas or Ecological Reserves. At Tuesdays 9 a.m. council meeting, members will have a moderated discussion on how the managementplan process is progressing, and what system the council will use to make its recommendations to federal officials in February. Controversy developed earlier this year over early proposals for expansion of managed areas. Final decisions on the management-plan specifics will be made by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration staff, and returned to the Keys for public hearings. In an afternoon program, Shannon Estenoz, a Key West native with the U.S. Department of the Interior, will update council members on Everglades restoration efforts that affect Keys water quality. The meeting is open to the public, with specific times for comment.Biscayne hearingManagers of Biscayne National Park hold a public hearing from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Holiday Inn of Key Largo, mile marker 100 oceanside. The session likely will focus on Alternative 6, a new proposal drafted by park managers after complaints about a proposed no-fishing area of 16 square miles north of Key Largo. The new proposal suggests a larger managed area but with a new quota-permit system for recreational anglers and sportfishing guides. Most commercial fishing would be banned.A special recreation zone would limit or prohibit access and activities that are most damaging to the coral reef system, while maintaining access for a diverse group of park users, park Superintendent Brian Carlstrom said.A similar plan, Alternative 7, would eliminate the quota system but close all fishing from June through Septem ber. Most commercial fishing would be banned in the area.OUR ENVIRONMENTCity might amend charterMarathon City Council members have little to fear, at the moment, should they run afoul of the city charter. Councilwoman Ginger Snead said she would like that loophole closed, and suggested that the board direct City Attorney John Herin to find a way to do so. That would likely involve amending the city charter the citys founding document or approving a law that would make violating the charter a misdemeanor enforceable by the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. In my mind, if were going to have a rule, lets have a way to enforce it. We say theres not many problems yet, so why bother, but thats being reactive to a situation instead of proactive, Snead said at the Nov. 26 council meeting. Snead was non-specific about what prompted her to bring up charter enforcement, but its a conversation the council has had more than once over the years, most notably after Mayor Dick Ramsay, in December 2009, admitted to violating the city charter on several occasions. Ramsay was referring to working directly with city staff council members arent allowed to do that after receiving multiple resident complaints about the location of a proposed sewer plant on Grassy Key. The incident prompted a council discussion in March 2010 about the fact that no person or entity is in charge of enforcing the city charter. Herin was directed then to contact the state Attorney Generals Office, but nothing was ever codified. Councilman Chris Bull agreed with Snead and likened a potential charter change to the city recently amending procedural meeting rules after a dust-up regarding council members discussing substantive items during the closingcomments portion of their meetings.We reviewed them and saw we were out of compliance and made a couple of decisions and moved on, he said. Ive contacted the State Attorneys Office about this and they said if we adopted an ordinance that made it a misdemeanor, then they would prosecute it.Councilman Mark Senmartin suggested a charter review committee be established. I dont think public input would be a bad thing if we came up with a public committee to evaluate some of the rules, he said. The council unanimously approved Sneads motion to have Herin research how charter enforcement is handled elsewhere and report back to the board.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter Staff

Several toys with high lead levels or toys that could cause young children to choke were found at major retailers and discount stores in the last few months, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group said Tuesday. The consumer safety group analyzed 50 toys for its annual report. Violations were found in fewer than a dozen, including a Captain America toy shield and play jewelry. PIRG said the Captain America Soft Shield purchased at Toys R Us had 29 times the legal limit of lead. A package of toy jewelry rings from Dollar Tree tested positive for lead twice the legal limit, said the report.Small parts that could pose a choking risk were found in six toys that the group said did not carry the necessary warning labels for children. PIRG said three toys were too loud and exceeded federal limits on decibels: two Leap Frog phones for toddlers the Chat & Count phone and the Lil Phone Pal and the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn remote.The toy industry disagreed with the reports findings, saying that toys are actually safer than ever before and questioning the testing methods used by PIRG.We know that toys are safe, said Joan Lawrence, vice president of standards and regulatory affairs at the Toy Industry Association. In this country, by law, toys are required to have been tested and certified before they are put on store shelves. Lawrence said PIRG did not use a testing laboratory accredited by the federal agency that oversees toy safety the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which approves labs for manufacturers to use for required testing on their products. PIRG acknowledged that the testing lab it used was not CPSC approved, but said it is the same lab it has been using for years. CPSC spokeswoman Patty Davis said commission staff across the country began picking up samples of the toys highlighted by PIRG over the weekend and will test them to see if further action is needed. Overall toy safety, Davis said, has improved in recent years. Government figures show 31 toy recalls in fiscal year 2013, which ended Sept. 30 none involving lead. Thats down from 38 recalls in 2012; 50 in 2009 and 172 in 2008. A 2008 law that set stronger standards for childrens products, including strict limits on lead, has helped make many products safer for youngsters. The law was passed after a wave of recalls of lead-tainted toys.The Trouble in Toyland report can be found at www .uspirgedfund.org/reports /usf/trouble-toyland-2013 .But some toys still dangerous, advocates sayBy JENNIFER C.

The Dolphins won, 64-63, despite a Key West High record 41 points from Multy.Fins over ConchsIt was a moment that every basketball player dreams about: Down by one, stealing the ball and driving in for a buzzer-beating layup as time expires.But Key West High School senior Tanisha Multys lastsecond shot Wednesday bounced harmlessly off the rim and rival Marathon High escaped with a 64-63 home win over the Conchs.I thought it was going to go in, but it went in and out. I played my heart out. It was frustrating, Multy said. Multy broke her own school record with 41 points against the Dolphins, but it wasnt enough as Marathon withstood a pair of Key West rallies in the fourth quarter and overtime. The Conchs trailed by as much as 14 in the fourth, 5137, but came roaring back as three of the Dolphins five starters fouled out in the final minutes. JohnNisha Qualls, Yailin Nieda and Kenna Wellever all fouled out, along with sixth-man Selena Gonzalez, which left the Dolphins thin on ball handlers. At that point, we only had two starters left on the court. The girls on the court had not played much at all, so they held it together as good as we could, Dolphins coach Deanna Klaus said. Lucky for Marathon, it still had Gardine Raymond, who scored 19 of her teamhigh 33 points in the fourth quarter and overtime. Klaus said Raymond, usually the Dolphins second scoring option, was crucial to holding Key West off down the stretch. I dont think she realizes how strong of a player she can be, the coach said. Qualls scored 25 points and hauled in 15 rebounds before fouling out, while Kenna Wellever had four points and Nieda two.

That many? Scott said after the Conchs fell to 1-2 and 0-2 in the district and he was informed of his points total. Nobody was knocking down shots at the end of the game. Scott scored only two points in the first quarter, but then went on a rampage in what was a back-and-forth battle throughout. He scored 10 points in the second quarter and all 17 of his teams second-quarter points, most of them on high-flying drives to the basket.

Trailing 1-0 at intermission, the Key West High boys soccer team came back in the second half and defeated Hialeah Miami Lakes, 4-1, Wednesday afternoon in a District 16-3A game at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. I think we were a little nervous because we had a lot of opportunities we missed in the first game we played them, coach Marc Pierre said, referring to a 1-0 Key West victory the first week of the season. We needed to settle down and make easy chances. The Conchs had few chances to score most of the first half, which was scoreless until, with about seven minutes left, Hialeahs Jhon Sanchez beat keeper Christian Lee from the left side. Key West had a flurry of attempts in the halfs waning moments. Adam Swiecicki sailed a 30-yard free kick right to keeper Bryan Denis, who then made a nice save on a hard shot from Roberto Remercy. Finally, Alistair Fergus kicked an in-close try over the goal. The comeback began nine minutes into the second half when sophomore Spencer Hamilton scored for a 1-1 tie. Freshman Noah Cutchin followed with a shot from the top of the box that went just inside the left post and which left Denis and teammate Leo Cordero muttering at each other in Spanish. A cross from freshman Brian Coward to a streaking Swiecicki produced the third goal with 20 minutes left, and then yet another freshman, Danny Kearny, his face alit in the lowering sun, scored off a cross from senior Simon Dayer to make it 4-1. It was the first career goal for Kearny, who said, That takes a lot of pressure off me and gives me confidence the other kids were riding me for not scoring. The Conchs improved to 5-2-2 and 3-1-1 in the district. The passing was a lot better, they were talking to one another in the second half, said Pierre, who had special praise for senior Justin Mock, whose sliding tackles kept Hialeah at bay. The Trojans did not get a shot on goal in the second half against Lee, who was unrecognizable when he took the field. His long hair was gone, having given way to a new style. My lucky Mohawk, he said. Thought Id change things up. ters. It wasnt until the fourth quarter that Marathon looked to be pulling away. Raymond made two free throws after a technical foul on Key West coach Shonta McLeod to make it 43-37. Baskets by Qualls and Raymond gave the Dolphins a 10-point lead and a Wellever fast-break layup made it a 14-point lead. Thats when the Dolphins started losing starters to foul trouble and Key West began chipping away at the lead. The Conchs trailed 55-45 with time winding down, but two straight steals and baskets made it 55-50 with 26.7 seconds remaining. A Multy three-pointer made it 55-53 and the Conchs sunk a basket with just seconds remaining to force overtime.In overtime, Raymond broke a 58-58 tie with a putback layup and extended the lead to 63-58 on a three-point play. It was 64-58 after another Raymond free throw, but the Conchs would not go quietly.Multy made a basket with 26.5 seconds remaining in OT and the Conchs stole the ball on Marathons ensuing possession. A Multy threepoint play made it 64-63.The Dolphins had possession for several seconds, as Raymond tried dribbling out the clock. But Multy came up with the steal and an uncontested look at the basket.It bounced off the rim and Multy dropped to the floor, head in hand. She was finally lifted up by teammate Brooke Marsden as a small but raucous crowd flooded the floor to celebrate with the Dolphins. I wish we could play in that environment every night, Klaus said. Everybody played hard and worked hard last night. These girls have a lot of heart and I have nothing bad to say about them.Marathon (4-2) was scheduled to host Archbishop Carroll High School on Friday, but results were not available at press time.

Four Keys Gate players fouled out, two in the first half, which took an hour to play.Conch senior Ryann Appleby scored 17 points and dominated the offensive and defensive boards.Keys Gate led, 13-11, after the first quarter, but with Multy scoring 17 points in the second, mostly on transition layups after steals, the Conchs had a 30-27 lead at halftime. Key West went on a 20-4 run to begin the third quarter and led 54-33 going into the fourth. Multy sat out most of the fourth before coming back in to score six more points, the last two at the buzzer.The other Conch scorers were Kaneya Mims, who had nine points; Nicole Konhaeuser Lopez with three; Saria Smith and Arianan Shaw with two each; and Brooke Marsden with one.The margin could have been worse. When Keys Gates Adria Molina fouled out early in the fourth quarter, she angrily walked out the gym door. When she returned, she sat in the stands and, aware of the foul disparity, mused, They should have 80 on us by now.

We settled in and our offense started clicking, head coach Arthur Paterson said. Our shooting definitely was a lot better. Weve got a lot of young starters, and you can see things taking shape, Paterson said. We were happy to get a win over a decent Marathon team. The Hurricanes improved to 4-3 overall.

Chase Renner then missed a 3-point attempt before Nathaniel Hayes hit two free throws to close the margin to 56-53. The Conchs had a chance to get closer or tie, but Renner and Andre Patterson missed shots. With 59 seconds left, Keys Gates Renel Moreau, who led his team with 16 points, missed two free throws. The crowd roared with delight but then groaned when Kirk Gilzeane put back the second miss to make it 58-53. Gilzeane quickly followed that with a layup to put the game out of reach. A great win for us, said Johnson, who had eight players who scored. We kept our composure. Key Wests outside threats, Renner and Alan Greager, were cold all night with each making one 3point shot, and center Luis Acosta scored only two and fouled out. I need him in there at the end of a game, said Key West coach Tony McDowell, who, other than that, said, I just dont know what to say.

Key West won its third consecutive game and improved to 9-4 overall and 3-1 in District 16-3A. Hialeah Miami Lakes is 0-4 in the district and has been outscored, 15-0, in two games against the Conchs. Angela Niles scored four goals for the Conchs for a season total of 23 a freshman record.Key West which played without another high scorer, Caila DeAbreu, who sat because she missed a recent two-game trip to the Fort Myers area didnt score until six minutes into the first half when a ball went in the net off a Hialeah player. After Maudia Azard followed that with a shot from the top of the box that sneaked in off the left post, Niles scored her first goal on a hard shot under the cross bar. The Conchs made it 4-0 when Niles took Libby Isherwoods corner kick in the air and scored in one motion. And that not 8-0 was the score at intermission.In the second half, the ball ricocheted off players like a pinball as Hialeah put most of its players in the box. And when the Conchs did get a shot on goal, keeper Iliana Alvarado always seemed to be in the way. Alvarado was especially spectacular while making a save on a penalty-kick attempt by Niles. The ball spurted from Alvarados gloved hands about 10 feet to Niles, who was following her shot. Niles shot again but Alvarado redirected the booming shot over the goal. Moments later, Niles got revenge when she beat Alvarado to make it 5-0. That gave her 22 goals for the season, breaking the record of 21 set by Devin Mitchell three years ago. The Trojans did not have a shot on goal the entire game and were only in Key West territory twice.Niles scored her fourth goal left-footed in front of the net to increase their lead to 6-0. The final goal came on an Isherwood corner kick that freshman MacKenzie Cohen converted on the run.After the game, Key West coach Scott Paul ran onto the field to congratulate Alvarado. You did a hell of a job, he said.

I maneuvered into position for the shot and yelled to him into the 25-knot wind: Have you ever hooked a fish this big?He only shook his head and continued the battle with the mid-sized mutton snapper. As the fish filled the landing net, I could hear Jodys sigh of relief as he realized the battle was over and he won. I had to know how he felt at that moment; it had been so long since my first mutton snapper.You see, Jody and I grew up in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools and knew many of the same people. I left 30 years ago and he stayed. This came to light during the introductions that morning at our Key West dock. Fresh from my mile-high stomping grounds, I figured he could help me relive my first mutton-snapper catch vicariously through him. He gathered his breath and explained that the fish pulled especially hard, much harder than his largest fish to date, a 12-inch freshwater trout. In addition, being on a boat in the Atlantic off Key West made the experience simply amazing. Yep, thats how I remembered it, too. Here are some more recent firsts experienced in the Florida Keys: Larry Naeder from Marathon caught his first blackfin tuna while fishing offshore with Capt. Billy Turnbull. Blackfin tuna are common in the Florida Keys and can range from three to 30 pounds. The fight is generally an up-and-down battle with a final and excruciating death circle that will simply wear you down especially if you are a first-timer. Nothing prepares you for the glistening black and gold coming to the transom. Larry was stoked.Lisa Marie Rodriguez was with her husband, Capt. Pablo Rodriguez, on the 7-Mile Marina charter boat No Slack captained by Bucko Platt when she caught her first sailfish.Holding a sailfish for the first time will change you. From the texture of the massive dorsal fin to the thin and lethal bill, you find yourself staring in awe at the beautiful creature. Nothing in sportfishing feels as good as reviving a sailfish and then watching it swim away. During that same trip, two others had their first experience of landing a sailfish so they were three for three on the No Slack. Capt. Brandon Cyr of Reel Shallow Charters in Key West challenged himself by jumping on a paddleboard with a fly rod to hunt for redfish.Finding redfish in the Lower Keys and Key West is no easy feat with the outboard and technical poling skiff he normally uses, but to find redfish while paddleboarding and catch them while fly fishing would be a first for most of the planet. In fact, I have never had a report out of Key West of anyone using a paddleboard and a fly rod to catch redfish.But to seal his position as the paddleboard redfish king, Cyr went at it again and succeeded the next day, redfish on fly via paddleboard. Pretty rare.The Florida Keys are a place where firsttime opportunities never end. Having that firsttime experience on the water is unforgettable.Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters in Key West.Big or small, that catch is extra specialMarlin Scott On TheWaterQuick Fact:The Florida Keys are a place where first-time opportunities never end. Having that first-time experience on the water is unforgettable.You never forget your first time Lisa Marie Rodriguez (top) is all smiles with her first sailfish, which was released. Jody Utesch (above, left) from Aurora, Co lo., shows his first mutton snapper caught on the Premium Time out of Key West. And Capt. Brandon Cyr (above, right) out of Key West landed this redfish on fly while on a paddleboard.
