Marathon Mayor Dick Ramsay doesnt want to waste any time moving on from City Manager Roger Hernstadt, whos leaving the city in two weeks for a similar job in Marco Island. The plan is ... Ill be calling a special meeting, assuming enough [council members] can make it, for 5:30 p.m. [Friday] at the firehouse. It will discuss appointing an interim city manager, Ramsay said.Ramsay said hes leaning toward Finance Director Peter Rosasco, who served as interim manager prior to Hernstadts hiring. Ramsay wants that to happen immediately, not waiting until Hernstadts last day. He starts in Marco on Feb. 3.I cannot force this issue, but ... a transition should be made as quickly as possible, Ramsay said.

Hernstadt, who came to the Keys following a career in Miami and Miami-Dade County government, on Monday was hired as city manager, in rather strange fashion, by the Marco Island City Council and is scheduled to take over that post Feb. 3.Hernstadt initially lost out to fellow finalist Calvin Peck of Bald Head Island, N.C., on a 4-3 vote, but Marco Islands city charter requires a supermajority vote (5-2 or better) to hire a manager, so another vote was held. The vote remained the same the second time around, but after the second vote, Chairman Kenneth Honecker reversed course and changed his vote to Hernstadt, making it 4-3 for the Marathon manager. The council then took a recess, during which Peck apparently withdrew his name from the running. The board quickly held a third vote to approve Hernstadt, and it was unanimous, 7-0. The Marco Island council, as a full board, interviewed Hernstadt and Peck Monday night following individual interviews of both earlier in the day.Those in favor of Peck cited his loyalty to his employers and reputation as a more forceful leader than Hernstadt. They also lauded his military background.Hernstadt supporters cited his vast experience, especially in Florida, and businesslike approach to managing.During his interview,That city hires Marathon city manager after his four years in Keys positionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comRamsay: Its time to move onMayor wants Hernstadt to step aside nowBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Housing complex goes smoke-freePart-time security guard Dale Parsons has smoked for more than 50 years, but for the new year she decided to kick the habit for good. In addition to her health, she has another big reason to succeed: Her affordable-housing apartment complex just went cold turkey.On Jan. 1, Flagler Village, a 49-unit rental community of mostly duplexes on Stock Island, banned smoking on the grounds and inside all units.Its part of a growing trend of residential multi-unit buildings and developments, both privately and government-owned, to implement no-smoking policies. With no-smoking laws covering many public areas including airplanes, hotels, restaurants, bars, parks, schools, hospitals and public buildings tobaccoprevention specialists see places where people live as new territory to conquer. In 2000, it was unheard of, said Matthew Competiello, program manager for the American Lung Association. But over the past five or six years, there has been a lot of demand for smoke-free housing. Valencia Morris, the tobacco-prevention specialist for the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County, said complex-wide smoking bans are starting to become an amenity.A lot of people are wanting this, just like having a gym on the premises, she said.But with an adult smoking population in Florida of 17.1 percent, according to a state survey conducted in 2010, extending smoking bans into residences has been met with opposition. We have ruffled some feathers, said Mitzy Cordova, manager of Flagler Village, which had smokers in 18 of the 49 units when its ban took effect. While most residents say, Wow, Mitzy, this is great one has a newborn and lives next to a smokerFlagler Village to allow it only off premisesBY CAMMY CLARKcclark@MiamiHerald.comSTOCK ISLAND Mitzy Cordova, property manager at Flagler Village, has started a no-smoking policy at the affordable housing complex on Stock Island.Miami Herald photo by CAMMY CLARKFirst-time homeowners get a boostIts no secret that buying a house in the Keys can be a daunting prospect for working-class citizens.No one knows that better than Monroe County Sheriffs Office Deputy Willie Guerra, who was looking to buy a Middle Keys house for himself and four sons for some time.Sheriffs Office deputies do yeomans work but like most law enforcement officers, their pay isnt executive level. That means Marathon properties in Guerras price range were limited at best. Most of them are RVs or single-wide trailers, Guerra said. That wasnt going to work, so Guerra turned to a pair of valuable assets for city residents: He signed up for and was awarded a Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys home. In addition, Guerra was one of five recipients in December of a $10,000 nointerest loan from the city of Marathon. The loan was through a reboot of the citys 2010 first-time homebuyer assistance program. Proposed by Council woman Ginger Snead in January 2010, the city created the program and distributed nine income-restricted $10,000 loans. That meant the city had leftover money $78,000, according to city documents to reopen the program. It included remaining funds from the initial $100,000 setaside and fees paid to transfer building rights in the city. With the help of Habitat and the $10,000 the city gave, it makes it reasonable for anybody in our range to be able to afford a decent house, Guerra said.The citys loan program helping with purchasesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSee Hernstadt, 2ASee Mayor, 2ASee Smoking, 2ASee Home, 2APhoto by STEVE WITMER

Missing from the truck were six Penn Legion rods valued at $120 each, and two Star rods, also valued at $120 each. Also gone were four Penn 7500 SSU reels, three Penn 5500 SSU reels and one Penn 6500 reel (all valued at $170 each).

And the semi-retired 63-year-old is a non-smoker.I think its against their civil rights, he said. People moved here on the premise to have affordable housing and live a happy life, and all of a sudden there is no smoking. Its an addiction and a sickness, and a lot of people here cant afford to go anyplace else.But Cordova says the law is on the side of property owners. Were not telling anybody they cannot smoke, she said. Were telling them they cannot smoke on the property.In the Keys, tourists have discovered that finding a hotel, guesthouse or vacation rental that allows smoking inside is almost impossible these days. In a 2010 post on TripAdvisor.com, a woman from Virginia wrote: Looking desperately for a nice, quality resort hotel in Key West that still allows smoking without being fined or condemned to the loading dock.Still a rarityBut the opposite has been true when trying to find a nonsmoking residential rental community along the island chain. Donna Stayton, a health education program consultant with Tobacco Free Florida Keys, said she knows of only about 12 multi-unit developments in the Keys that ban smoking, and most have done so recently. Tobacco Free Florida Keys has helped three of the developments: Flagler Village and Banyan Grove, both on Stock Island and owned by the Wendover Group, and the 2-year-old Poinciana Royale in Key West, which opened as smoke-free.Jonathan Wolf, founder and president of Altamonte Springs-based Wendover Housing Partners, said he had wanted for a while to ban smoking at his 30 affordable developments, most of which are in Florida.The single most thing we can do to help our residents with their own health and their own finances is to have them stop smoking, said Wolf, a nonsmoker. But whenever you put in a social change as large as this, you get an element of pushback from the residents and from the people who manage the properties.Wolf said the support of property manager Cordova and Tobacco Free Florida Keys, as well as the nearKey West location, where there is a huge shortage of affordable housing, made Flagler Village and Banyan Grove perfect communities to start. Wolf expects them to be models he can use to roll out similar bans later in the year at his other properties.There was a lot of hullabaloo when they said there could be no more smoking in restaurants and bars a lot of Oh, my goodness, it would be the death of the industry, Wolf said. But it all came and went.Now, housing has become the target of many tobacco-prevention programs. But because people have to live somewhere, it is likely to remain an area that has to be tackled with education rather than laws.I dont see any legislation at state levels like there are for restaurants and bars, said Janisse Schoepp, senior program officer for the nonprofit Health Foundation of South Florida.Property managers and landlords can save money on insurance, maintenance and the costs of turning over a unit from one tenant to the next. Smoking units often require thousands of dollars more to repair or clean due to nicotine stains, cigarette burns and the odor.We always have to replace the carpet and repaint after a place has been left by a smoker, Cordova said. Sometimes the smell is so bad we have to tear out the drywall. We can sometimes turn over a nonsmokers apartment in eight hours, but it takes a week or two for a smokers.And its a good bet some of the higher costs to clean and repair a smokers apartment are passed along to all residents.Monroe Countys adult smoking rates are highest in South Florida at 21.1 percent, compared to 13.7 percent for Broward County, 10.6 percent for MiamiDade County and 9 percent for Palm Beach County, the lowest in the state.Flagler Village has given existing smoking residents a one-year grace period during which they can continue to light up on their porches.At Flagler, a smokeoutFrom Smoking, 1A Smoke-free grantThe Florida Department of Health in Monroe County has received a $56,000 grant from the Health Foundation of South Florida to promote smoke-free living policies across the Florida Keys. The Smoke-Free Living Monroe Project advances a key focus area supported by the foundation, namely, preventive health measures. The Health Foundation of South Florida is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health of Monroe, Broward and Miami-Dade residents by providing funding to promote health and prevent disease. Hernstadt took what some might consider a potshot at Marathon by calling it a transient community and youre either one of us or youre not. He was often criticized during his tenure as a hardball negotiator with a big-city mentality. Hernstadt told the Marco council, when asked about comments he made in a 2010 newspaper article saying he was ending my career in the Keys, that circumstances have changed. He said he and his wife Jessica had long sought to live on Marco Island largely so their son, a Marathon High School student who is soon to enter college, would have an easier commute visiting them on long weekends. Marco is on Floridas west coast and closer to Florida colleges than the Keys.In addition, Jessica Hernstadt is an attorney and her husband said she found it difficult to have a practice in Marathon because of the number of established attorneys in the Middle Keys. Hernstadt also fielded a question from the council about Keys media reports that he might have pursued the Marco Island job as leverage for a contract extension and/or pay raise from the Marathon City Council. His Marathon contract expires in June 2015. When you complete you deliberations and if Im fortunate enough to have an offer extended, I look forward to, under that scenario, being your city manager at any possible date, he said. Pressed further, Hernstadt claimed he has not been using the Marco Island recruitment as a negotiating tool against Marathon.The Marathon council has had opportunities every two weeks to extend or increase my contract if they desire to do that. This recruitment has been going on for several months and its been in the papers for over a month, he said.To date, I can tell you they havent done that and if you check the most recent version of the local paper in Marathon, theyve indicated they dont have an immediate intention of doing that. Clearly, if I was trying to leverage, which I am not, its not having an effect anyway, he added.Marathon Mayor Dick Ramsay and councilmen Mark Senmartin and Chris Bull have indicated theyre not willing to revisit Hernstadts contract at this time.As soon as he was hired, Hernstadt and the Marco council engaged in a public negotiation, eventually settling on the Feb. 3 start date and $155,000 annual salary. With a car allowance and various benefits, the package amounts to more than $200,000.Hernstadt was earning $145,000 in annual salary, plus benefits, in Marathon. That also amounted to more than $200,000 overall.The Marathon council was scheduled to meet in regular session Tuesday. The Hernstadt situation was not on the agenda, but Bull said given the circumstances, it likely would have been added.Herstadt gone after four yearsFrom Hernstadt, 1A Its not an investment property. That money you have to give back if you sell the house, he added. Theyre giving you a loan without interest.They are distributed based on maximum income markers for families. They are:One Person: $63,300.Two People: $72,447.Three People: $81,594.Four People: $90,741.City Planning Director George Garrett told the City Council last month that more applications had come in well after a July 31 deadline. The councils response was to extend the program through Jan. 31 and potentially award at least three more loans.We have a little bit of additional money and I received between July and now $10,000 back from somebody who sold their house, Garrett said. Should Guerra live in his new home for more than 30 years, the loan would be forgiven. Hes lived there about five months and says that 30 years is likely. This came around [and] now theyre stuck with me, Guerra said.City loan program helps buy homesFrom Home, 1A od [two more weeks] and allow him to leave City Hall early and take care of his business, he added.Ramsay added that he didnt care for some of the comments Hernstadt made to the Marco Town Council about Marathon being a transient community and youre either one of us or youre not.I was surprised that he made some uncalled comments about how Marathon treated him, but thats in the past and I dont even want to go there, the mayor said.Councilman Chris Bull said he didnt expect Hernstadt to hammer out a contract with Marco so quickly. The Marco Island Town Council hired Hernstadt Monday and he agreed to a contract around an hour later.Councilwoman Ginger Snead is a big supporter of Hernstadt and said she would again support hiring a professional manager. I dont know of anyone locally thats qualified as a city manager, so I would want the search to go out just like we did before, she said. Snead added that she has a plan in mind for moving forward, but declined to elaborate.One person cant make that decision, so what I plan to do Im not going to play out in the paper. I think thats one of the biggest problems we have as a council, she said.Councilman Mark Sen martin agreed with Snead that the city should not settle for a local candidate if none are qualified.Search to start for new managerFrom Mayor, 1A Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYDeputy Willie Guerra is well known in Marathon from his travels throughout the city in his department pickup and also for being the Middle Keys chief marine officer for the Sheriffs Office.

Rowells Marina purchase nearly doneThe Rowells Marina property on Key Largo could be in Monroe County ownership this week, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said.We were hopeful that we would close [on the sale] today but it did not happen, Gastesi said Tuesday.The administrator said remaining details are nothing major, and he expects the $5 million purchase to finalize within days. The seller is Largo Sun Vista Acquisition Co. of Deerfield Beach.The county sought to have the eight-acre waterfront site in public ownership by Tuesday, in time for a Jan. 14 deadline set by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council to submit applications for projects that could be funded by the bed tax. Were still going to apply to the TDC, Gastesi said. By the time the reviewers look at the application, he said, the county will own Rowells. Purchase of the waterfront site at mile marker 104.5 has been authorized with county capital-improvement money. If approved, the TDC funding would go toward planning and construction of improvements. Current plans call for most of the Rowells property to remain vacant as a site for festivals and benefit events. Facilities could include a public beach along Florida Bay, a picnic area, parking and restrooms. A private company might be sought to build and operate a 25-slip marina.Other projectsOn Monday, the countys Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee held a meeting to hear residents suggest ideas for a $3.2 million upgrade of Bernstein Park on Stock Island. The popular playing fields regularly flood during the rainy season, so the site will be extensively raised and redeveloped.Several items to move ahead on improvements at other county parks will be considered at Thursdays meeting of the Monroe County Commission at the Harvey Government Center in Key West. Those include:Approval to spend $192,213 on shade structures at Higgs Beach in Key West, the Big Pine Community Park, the Big Pine Bark Park and Bay Point Park in the Lower Keys. The structures consist of pilings that support triangular shade sails. Five are planned for the Higgs Beach playground.Approval to seek a design firm for scenic vista projects at Higgs Beach and the Big Pine Key Park. Funding for the designs will be provided by the state. Monroe County previously agreed to move a road through Higgs Beach to make better use of available space, as proposed under the Higgs Beach master plan.Now, county is looking for money from TDCBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Wednesday, January 15, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Held on the grounds of the31020 Overseas Highway Mile Marker 31 Big Pine KeyFor more information contact LKCC:(305) 872-2411 (800) firstname.lastname@example.orgLower Keys Chamber of Commerce D $3.4M in bike lanes plannedA $3.4 million project to build nearly 12 miles of bicycle lanes from Key Largo to Ocean Reef in North Key Largo goes to the Monroe County Com mis sion on Thursday. Commissioners hold their regular January meeting at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue in Key West, a day later than usual. If approved, Construct Group Corp. of Hialeah Gardens would be authorized to build 11.5 miles of bicycle lanes along County Road 905 at a cost of $3,378,360. County Road 905, from near mile marker 106.5 north through lands protected for conservation and wildlife, have become increasingly popular as a bicycling route from MiamiDade County. The annual Bike MS: Breakaway to Key Largo benefit ride on March 1 alone will bring about 1,500 bicyclists down to Key Largo. Monroe Countys share of gas-tax revenue will pay for $2.5 million of the project. Money from the countys infrastructure sales tax will provide $866,026. The bike-lane project originally was bid last June. Clarifications of the contract delayed approval. If authorized Thursday, the contractors have about 10 months to complete construction.The County Commis sions meeting, beginning at 9 a.m., was moved back a day so commissioners and staff can attend todays Seven 50 Summit in Broward County.That effort joins seven South Florida counties to create a blueprint for growing a more prosperous, more desirable Southeast Florida during the next 50 years and beyond. Commissioners David Rice and Sylvia Murphy will be out of the county for the Thursday meeting, leaving commissioners Heather Carruthers, George Neugent and Danny Kolhage to handle the session. As a result, the agenda for the meeting was intentionally limited. Commissioners will hear:A presentation on the plan to build an underpass at the east end of the Old Seven Mile Bridge to allow bicyclists, pedestrians and the disabled safer access to the historic span.Renewal of the contract with South Shore Aviation Associates to manage the fixed-base operation for private aircraft at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.A resolution recommending Neugent serve on the Gulf Consortium, a panel handling some of the states expected revenue from BP Deepwater Horizon fines.Renewing a resolution for assessments for the Cudjoe Regional system of wastewater improvements.Approval from commissioners likely ThursdayNORTH KEY LARGOBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comPARKS AND RECREATIONWHEN BUZZARDS BLITZ Paul Kaub, a member of the Matecumbe Angler Fishing Club, was fishing five miles west of Sprigger Bank, on the edge of Florida Bay at the Everglades National Park border, with his daughter, her husband and grandkids when about 30 buzzards decided to make the boats tower, radar, railings and outriggers their perch for the day.

The third-grader was suspended from school for two days but is back this week, which has many parents angered at school administrators and concerned about their childrens safety. A strong showing of Key Largo School parents was expected at Tuesdays School Board meeting at Marathon High School. Parents are angry with the schools administration for not expelling the student, who, according to several parents, has a history of making threats and displaying bizarre and violent behavior going back more than a year. This matter at hand, its building, said Pedro Reinoso. Its not a mushroom that grew over night. He is a child that needs help, and hes just not getting it. These parents are also upset that they were not contacted about the incident by administrators. They call us when they want a donation, but not when a kid threatens to shoot our kids in the face, said parent Rob Bulkiewicz. Key Largo School Principal Julia Hoar referred all questions to Super intendent Mark Porter, who did not return a phone call for this story. Regarding expulsion, however, it appears the school may not have any choice but to deal with such problem students, no matter how severe their behavior. School Board member John Dick says state law prohibits schools from kicking students out for more than 10 days. The state says that we have to provide an education, Dick said. Un fortunately, we dont have the facilities in the district to handle a situation like that. According to an incident report from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, the third-grader, who was not identified because of his age, picked up a pencil and pretended to stab a classmate and a teacher. He also told his classmates he was going to shoot them all in the head, according to the report. During the outburst, the student also described to his classmates how he was going to attack them with a chainsaw. Several parents were so angry that they have pulled their children from school. Parent Jackie Bello is one of them, opting to let her two students work from home Monday. I dont want them to fall behind, but my kids are not in school, Bello said. Im not willing to put them at risk. Bulkiewicz said the schools handling of the Jan. 8 situation contradicts its zero-tolerance policy when it comes to other violent behavior, such as bullying. They have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying, but its OK to threaten to shoot other students, Bulkiewicz said. Thats bullying to me. Bulkiewicz said administrators told him that the child was evaluated by a counselor before he was let back in school. They told me everything is fine, hes in a good mood, he said. Well, Ted Bundy was in a good mood, too, sometimes.They contend schools reaction not strong enoughBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Cop transferred as death probe continuesAs the Florida Depart ment of Law Enforcement continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a man in Key West police custody, a detective formerly working the case has been reprimanded and reassigned due to laissez-faire police work. Charles Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., died at Lower Keys Medical Center after being taken off life support on Dec. 4. Police pulled him over on North Roosevelt Boulevard on Nov. 28. Police said he pulled away from the traffic stop, drove through Old Town, then stopped his P.T. Cruiser on the sand at South Beach at the Atlantic end of Duval Street.As police were handcuffing Eimers (he was on his stomach in the sand), he began turning blue, according to Officer Thaddeus Calvarts account.FLDE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said her agency is conducting an active investigation into use of force by the police.While Eimers was in the hospital, Officer Todd Stevens reportedly was told to contact Eimers son Treavor to notify him of his fathers imminent death. He didnt do that, Capt. Scott Smith wrote in a Dec. 12 letter of reprimand.You were advised that Eimers would expire in the near future and that he would not ever leave the hospital. You were to contact next of kin, Smith wrote to Stevens.On Dec. 1, three days before Eimers died, Smith checked with Stevens on the status of the case and found out that Treavor wasnt called.When I asked why, you said because [Eimers] had not expired yet, Smith wrote. I told you this was unacceptable because we knew he was going to pass and we needed to give the family a chance to come and see him. I was very disappointed in you as this is a very basic detective task. Smith also talked with Stevens about the case on Dec. 4, 5, 9 and 10, according to the reprimand, and each time was told no change.Then, in a second conversation on Dec. 10, You met me at the back door of the police station and you told me, He is dead. I asked you when he died and you said you were not sure but maybe over the weekend or last week. In a later meeting with other supervisors, Smith recalls that Stevens continually said you were sorry but could give us no reasonable reason that you continued to mislead me about talking to the son. You only said you were confused about the days. You were completely detached from this important case and had no empathy for either Eimers or his family. This type of laissez-faire police is an embarrassment to the Key West Police Department and will not be tolerated, Smith wrote. Stevens, 42, was hired in August 2002 and he earns $69,412. He was moved to the detectives unit in April 2012 and put back on road patrol last month. His move from detective to patrol is a transfer, according to department spokeswoman Alyson Crean. Crean said Stevens file contains a written reprimand and three-day suspension for failure to secure a duty weapon according to departmental policy, along with seven commendations. Eimers autopsy results are pending, according to the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office.Michigan man died in custody of Key West copsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCharter captain: Grouper closure hurtsA four-month winter closure on grouper has just about put us out of business, a renowned Key West sportfishing captain told fishery managers Jan. 8. My business has fallen off more than 60 percent, Ralph Delph said at a Key Largo meeting of state and federal regulators. The closure on fishing on most types of shallow-water grouper runs from Jan. 1 through April. Thats when the grouper are in Key West, Delph said. We can get a few in December, then none for four months. When it opens back up again in May, theyre basically gone. Delph, a tournament-winning captain for more than four decades in Key West, spoke to representatives of the federal South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico fishery management councils during a three-day meeting on South Florida rules and the future of Goliath grouper harvests.Earlier during a Jan. 7 session, a combined panel of federal council members and staff of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission agreed to take a look at several regulations, including a possible review of shallow-water grouper closure length, months [and] species for both the Gulf and South Atlantic.Delph said allowing a bag limit of one Goliath grouper in a slot-limit size for recreational fishing would be a tremendous help to us. I was booked a year in advance for years, Delph said. In December, I had five trips booked and lost two of them to weather. I cant say [the fourmonth closure] hasnt been good for the fishery, Delph said. I can say it hasnt been good for me.Many divers and conservationists contend the Goliath grouper fishery should remain closed because so little is known about its population demographics. A reported abundance of the massive fish in the Keys and off Floridas southwest coast may not reflect the overall state of the fishery.The panel, meeting as the South Florida Joint Council Committee on South Florida Management Issues, identified several fish species that feasibly could be turned over to Florida for rule-making. The committee was formed in response to complaints that fishing rules adopted for areas as far as Texas or North Carolina create problems for commercial fishermen and recreational anglers in the subtropical waters of South Florida. Various state and federal jurisdictions all come together in the Florida Keys, creating confusion over which laws apply. Were trying to make it so you dont need an attorney on your boat to go fishing, said John Sanchez, a South Florida resident serving on the Gulf of Mexico council.The panel agreed to collect information on yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper, black grouper, Nassau grouper, hogfish and mangrove snapper to see if management of those fisheries would be best regulated by Florida managers.Any decisions reached by the panel would need approval from the full federal councils.Several fishermen have recommended creation of a new federal council specifically for South Florida, but that proposal would require congressional approval. That prospect appears unlikely, fishery managers say.Delph speaks as Goliath grouper ban is mulledOUR FISHERIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

But they later found the car at the nearby Coral Isles Church. Quintana was out of the car, dancing in the grass, Herrin said. She was dressed in strange clothing that was wet and had a white substance on her face which might be some kind of theatrical paint. She said something unintelligible about Disney and there were random things written all over the car in pink marker.UPPER KEYSKeynoter Staff QUINTANA Duval named among best U.S. main streetsDuval Street in Key West, known as an adult playground marked by bars some of them for adults only doesnt conjure any images of Mayberry, but the tourist drag has found its way onto Fodors Travels list of its Top 15 main streets in the United States.Even in this fast-paced era, many small towns have held onto their historic roots and preserved their central thoroughfares, travel writer Emily Wasserman wrote in the report published this week.From a harbor town on the west coast with ornate Victorian architecture to Key Wests colorful Duval Street, visitors can find unique cultural attractions and warm, welcoming communities, she wrote.

Representing the United Teachers of Monroe, Hummell-Gorman has been negotiating a oneyear contract for teachers and school-related personnel since April, first with Superintendent Mark Porter and then, beginning in December, with labor attorney Bob Norton. The primary sticking point is language in the contract that would allow the School Board to unilaterally institute unpaid furloughs. Until thats worked out and a deal struck, the district cant divvy up $1.2 million in funding earmarked for teacher pay raises. This is the language the School Board invoked in order to gut your paychecks for the past two years, Hummell-Gorman said in the letter sent Friday to UTM members. The only thing that could facilitate a potential agreement at this point would be a change in the School Boards position. Barring that, UTM will likely need to move to impasse and seek a remedy for its members through proper legal channels. Board member John Dick said the furlough language has been in teacher contracts since the 1970s. We used it under extraordinary circumstances. Using unpaid furloughs, the district cut more than $13 million in spending from between 2010 and 2012, with savings of $1.7 million per year derived from the mandatory sevenday furloughs. We want to keep it, Dick said of the language, so we have an option of not firing people. Without that language, we wouldve had to fire teachers. The board would rather have it done this way. This round of bargaining is for a one-year contract retroactive to June that covers the districts 525 teachers and 114 school-related personnel like bus drivers and food-service workers.Hummell-Gorman increasingly is frustratedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

My thanks to you all, and best wishes for the new year. Gloria Goodman, manager Marathon library Recreational fishing is a cornerstone of American life. Its more than just a way to get dinner on the table. Families have bonded and formed relationships over a rod and reel for decades, cementing the sports place in Americas cultural consciousness. But now, our collective love of fishing is under attack not from overfishing, but over-regulation. Forty-one federally managed fish stocks are overfished. However, this number has declined consistently over the last decade and, in fact, the number of stocks on the overfishing list is at an all-time low. This progress hasnt been achieved without a cost to anglers and the businesses that depend on access to the nations fisheries, as overly strict regulations have hampered the economic value of fisheries. Sustainability and economic efficiency are not mutually exclusive concepts, but managers have focused almost entirely on the biological aspects of fisheries, with socioeconomics remaining an afterthought. Originally enacted as the Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976, the federal government has attempted to address these issues through legislation. Over the past four decades, there have been two major amendments the Sustainable Fisheries Act of 1996 and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 2006 (commonly referred to as Magnuson-Stevens).Magnuson-Stevens addresses many of the problems associated with commercial fishing by establishing regional fishery management councils charged with restoring depleted fish populations and managing healthy ones. While an effective way to manage commercial fisheries, MagnusonStevens does not adequately distinguish between commercial and sport fishermen. A father taking his son to fish in the Gulf of Mexico will be put to the same strict standards that regulate commercial fishermen.On top of that, there are major financial implications for small, recreational fishing operations. These overly strict regulations are essentially putting a noose around the neck of local charter fishing operations, tackle stores and boat sales. Magnuson-Stevens requires catch limits to be established for all species even if there are no data to support that a fish population is depleted. The result is that recreational anglers are hampered by shortened fishing seasons and catch limits on fish that appear in great abundance hurting not only our hearts but our wallets.Next year, federal lawmakers are scheduled to re-authorize the MagnusonStevens Act, and it is an opportunity to address some of these issues.I propose four changes to the Magnuson-Stevens Act.Separate language for recreational fishing.There is no need for recreational fishermen to be lumped in with commercial fishing operations. Creating separate language to regulate commercial and recreational fishermen allows lawmakers the freedom to put regulations in place that make sense for everyone.Sensible allocation between commercial and recreational users.Formal guidelines must be established and regularly revisited that allocate fishery resources between recreational anglers and commercial harvesters by using data based on modern economic, social and conservation criteria.Catch limits based on actual science, rather than non-existent data. Currently, catch limits are established for every fish population under management, even if there is no reason for concern about the health of a population. Science should lead the process of fishery management. A one-size-fitsall strategy is a recipe for disaster.Fisheries management transferred to the states where appropriate. In many cases, federal agencies are not the best organizations to manage fisheries. Where appropriate, states or fishery management commissions should take control of managing fish populations. That will allow organizations to manage fisheries with a greater attention to detail and a focus on enriching the lives of those most affected by fish population management. Now is the time for action. With the support of federal lawmakers, in particular the U.S. Senate, we can take back recreational fishing and ensure that it remains a vital piece of our heritage and a consistent revenue-generating operation for local communities. Recreational fishermen and commercial fishing operations should not be put in the same boat.John Brownlee is the Upper Keys representative of the International Game Fish Association. He testified before Congress in November on the need for reform of the Magnuson-Stevenson Act. He lives in Islamorada. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.

Cops: Drunk man showed loaded gunA Big Pine Key man was jailed Tuesday morning for allegedly openly carrying a loaded gun while drunk on the Lower Keys island. Jeffrey Charron, 45, is charged with carrying a firearm openly, improper exhibition of a firearm and resisting an officer with violence. The first two counts are misdemeanors, the third one a felony.Deputy Becky Herrin, spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, said dispatchers received several calls reporting a man who appeared to be intoxicated who had a handgun visible in the waistband of his pants.Deputies Scott Ward and Linda Kohout responded to the location, the Ace Hardware store on Big Pine. There, they found Charron sitting on the ground in front of the business, with the gun, a loaded .380-caliber Walther, tucked in his pants. Herrin said Ward ordered him to put his hands up and keep them in the air but Charron instead began to lower one hand toward the gun. Kohout walked up to him and was able to grab his arm and Ward grabbed the other arm, Herrin said.As they tried to handcuff Charron, he reportedly struggled with them, and a corrections officer who was riding with Kohout on patrol was able to get control of the weapon.Herrin said a number of witnesses said Charron was having trouble standing. At one point, he reportedly went into the hardware store and sat on the floor but was asked to leave and went outside, where the deputies found him.Charron remained in the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island late Tuesday, held without bond.Witnesses called when they saw him outside AceCRIME FRONTA month after leading a faculty review of Florida Keys Community College President Jonathan Gueverras job performance, Faculty Council President Dawn Ellis resigned on Friday.Ellis, who was the director of the schools computer science program, couldnt be reached for comment but college spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard confirmed the move without providing details.The evaluation was distributed and completed in December but Gueverra initially refused to release the results in response to a public records request from the Keynoter He finally relented when contacted by the newspapers attorney.The evaluation was done anonymously by 10 of the 26 full-time faculty members and gave Gueverra generally good marks. They were asked a range of questions, asking to strongly agree, agree, are they neutral, disagree or strongly disagree. One of the statements on the evaluation form: I believe that this president is highly effective in performing the responsibilities of the president. One person strongly agreed, three agreed, two were neutral, two disagreed and one strongly disagreed. Another statement: I have confidence that the college will grow and improve under this presidents leadership. One faculty member strongly agreed, three agreed, two were neutral, three disagreed and one strongly disagreed. Gueverra, hired in 2012 under a three-year contract worth $180,000 per year, received high marks from faculty for public presentations and fundraising.His poorest marks came on his ability to promote effective performance by administrative units, with one respondent strongly agreeing, one agreeing, three neutral, and five disagreeing.Asked if he cooperates and respects faculty governance, three faculty members agreed, three were neutral, one disagreed and three strongly disagreed.Tuesday, he said, In order for [me] to say there is value to it, it needs to be reliable, credible.

They not only draw visitors by the millions but in some instances also provide our drinking water, a commodity thats getting more precious in an increasingly parched world.Our stewardship of these assets, which are always under threat from development and various sources of pollution, is complicated by the reality of rising seas caused by climate change. No state is more vulnerable than Florida to the rising sea level and nowhere in Florida is more vulnerable than the Keys. Some local governments in South Florida have begun addressing rising seas through regional efforts to seek practical ways to protect vulnerable coastal communities and drinking-water sources. Count Monroe County among them. While the local leaderships recognition of global warmings threat is encouraging, our optimism is tempered by the lack of state leadership on this very serious issue. Tallahassee needs to join the 21st Century in recognizing global warming for the genuine peril that it is to Floridas populous coasts.Inland, advancement of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, a joint state-federal project to restore the vast swamps original water flow southward from Orlando to Florida Bay, remains a top goal in 2014. This ambitious, expensive plan has had its ups and downs over the years. Federal lawsuits by various stakeholders challenging parts of the plan and funding miscues mostly from the feds courtesy of a balky Congress have taken their toll on what was originally a 20-year restoration plan.But recent actions by both state and federal governments bode well for the future. State and federal officials are firming up a $1.8 billion plan to store and clean more water in the vast Everglades conservation area between I-75 and the Tamiami Trail, which will ultimately deliver more clean water to thirsty Everglades National Park.The state also will spend $90 million over three years to raise more of the Tamiami Trail to increase water flow through the park and into Florida Bay. One mile has already been raised, a success story for long-time advocates of elevation to eradicate the barrier the Trail has long been to the River of Grass flowing southward unimpeded.Another potential environmental threat is population growth. Florida will soon surpass New York as the third-most populous state. More people equals more development, especially along our coasts. Rather than easing growth-development rules, as the Republican leadership in Tallahassee has been doing in recent years, the state should prepare for more residents with smartgrowth plans that discourage sprawl on undeveloped land and direct redevelopment in established areas. We must grow wisely, without endangering our precious natural resources. Miami HeraldCharron remained in the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island late Tuesday, held without bond.

CALVERT Tax scam timeFlorida Attorney General Pam Bondi says identity theft and tax scams go hand in hand, and since workers are starting to receive their 2013 tax documents from their employers, precaution is needed. She offered the following tips to avoid ID theft and tax fraud: File tax returns early. The Internal Revenue Service will reject a return if one is already filed with that Social Security number. Ask for credentials of the tax preparer, and ask if he or she belongs to a state board or bar association that requires continuing education. Do not provide your Social Security number unless it is required. Do not carry your Social Security card or write the number on checks. Shred financial documents and papers before discarding them. Be wary of providing sensitive information via the Internet. Do not respond to emails asking for information relating to tax refunds. The IRS website is the legitimate source for checking on refund status. Check your credit report every 12 months. Consumers should file complaints about tax-related scams and any other types of fraud by calling the Attorney Generals Office fraud hotline at (866) 9667226, or by filing a complaint online atwww.MyFloridaLegal.com.Tax helpers soughtAARP Tax-Aide, the nations largest free volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation service, is looking for Keys volunteers to help in computerized income tax preparation.

The proposal (SB 398) by committee Chairwoman Nancy Detert (R-Venice) would establish a Florida Tourism Hall of Fame area in the first floor of the Capitol, joining the Florida Artists, Florida Civil Rights, Florida Veterans and Florida Womens halls of fame, as well as a memorial to Floridas Medal of Honor recipients. The tourism hall would recognize people within the tourism industry who have made significant contributions to the economic climate and well-being of Floridians, according to the legislation. No state money would be set aside for the hall, a staff analysis said. The initial members of the tourism hall would be those who, since 2001, have been inducted into Visit Floridas Tourism Hall of Fame, Detert said. Among those honored by Visit Florida include AAA Auto Club Group Chairman Robert R.

Story, 4B In clash of winless, Conchs prevailAfter leading the Key West High School boys basketball team to a 75-60 victory over Coral Shores Friday night, Conch guard Chase Renner had no idea how many points he had scored.Twenty? he said, standing at mid-court in the Bobby Menendez Gym. Not close. Renner scored 37 to give the Conchs their first victory of the season after eight consecutive defeats and keep the 0-11 Hurricanes winless. No Key West player had scored more points in a game since the 2008-09 season, when Vladimyr Siberia scored 42 and Keith Valdez scored 38. The game drew a large crowd and marked Coral Shores Anthony Rices return to Key West. Two seasons ago, Rice was an integral part of a Conch team that went 16-1. But off-thecourt trouble kept him from hoops most of last season, and he ended up transferring. Rice, who had his own cheering section, had 16 points and 10 rebounds, but fouled out in the fourth quarter. He declined to talk about his return, but was happy for Renner, his friend. The Conchs, who never trailed in the game, had a comfortable lead for most of the first half, but 3-point shots by Shaka Smith and Richard Jacobsen brought the Hurricanes to within 3530 at halftime.Renner scores 37 in the win over the CanesBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP BOYS BASKETBALL See Hoops, 2BLady Fins streak stopped at nine winsThe Marathon High School girls basketball team ran its winning streak to nine games Friday before seeing it snapped in a Saturday afternoon contest. The Dolphins defeated Westwood Christian School handily on Friday, 66-17, before losing to Palmer Trinity School, 49-33. Palmer is the No. 1 seed in Marathons District 16-3A and was the last team todefeat the Dolphins, on Dec. 3,before they ripped off a month-plus long winning streak that featured wins over Keys rivals Coral Shores and Key West high schools, as well as a number of Miamiarea opponents. On Friday, the Dolphins made easy work of the Warriors, jumping out to a 27-6 lead after the first quarter. Marathon led 46-12 at the half and 59-17 after the third quarter. The Dolphins held Westwood scoreless for the entire fourth quarter, although the deficit was so large that a running clock was in place most of the second half.

Coral Shores finished the regular season with a 2-0 shutout of the Lady Conchs, a team that staged a 4-0 upset during a November game in Key West. That decision was the Conchs girls soccer first win over Coral Shores since 2006. On Friday, the Lady Canes mounted a formidable defense that turned away the visiting Conchs as Coral Shores split the series.Defensively our girls did a very good job, Cane head coach Arthur Paterson said.

See Soccer, 3BSee Dolphins, 2B Lady Dolphins look toward districtThe Marathon High School girls soccer team finished its regular season on Friday against a team it could well run into again in the near future. The Dolphins played to a 1-1 tie on the turf field at Miami Country Day, a team thats likely to advance to the state championship tournament out of District 15. Were going to see them again. Theyll either be district champs or runner-ups, Marathon coach Cindy Durkin said. Marathon (10-6-4) took the lead in the first 10 minutes of the game Friday when Savannah Rodamer took a pass from Chandler Elliott, made a nifty move to lose her defender and fired a shot from just outside the 18-yard box into the top left corner of the net. Durkin said she was happy to see Marathon convert early because goals were going to be hard to come by against the Spartans. Their goalie is one of the best weve ever come across. Shes an eighth-grader, but shes going to be a Division I recruit, she said.Marathon held onto the 1-0 lead until the final 10 minutes of the game, despite playing on an unfamiliar turf field.The ball was taking some crazy bounces, the coach said. We let up for a brief 30 seconds and they were able to slot a ball from the right side into the net. Our girls all have turf burns because those fields really chew up your skin. Should the teams meet again, Durkin said she hopes it would be on the grass field at Marathon High.The Dolphins were scheduled to open their defense of last years District 16-1A championship Tuesday with an opening-round game against Riviera Prep School, but results were not available at press time.

Selena Gonzalez, Dixie Murphy and Brittany Smollett each had two points. We played well and subs got a lot of playing time, coach Deanna Klaus said.Marathon was outplayed on Saturday by a solid Falcons team, but played much better than in its 69-23 loss in the teams initial matchup.We have improved tremendously; we did a good job of beating their press but had trouble scoring, Klaus said. We played hard and competed well.Marathon trailed 12-2 after the first quarter and 24-11 at the half. The Dolphins were outscored 21-14 in the third, as Palmer put the game out of reach with a 45-25 lead heading into the fourth quarter.Nieda led the team with 12 points, while Qualls had nine and Welever and Raymond each added six.Dolphin girls split a pairFrom Dolphins, 1B After a Jacobsen shot cut the lead to 35-32 at the start of the third quarter, Key Wests Luis Acosta scored on two drives, the second of which featured a behind-theback dribble at mid-court. The guys told me that as a senior I needed to step up so I stepped up, Acosta said afterward.Renner hit a 3-pointer and a short jumper to extend the lead to 44-32, but the Hurricanes scored 12 of the next 15 points to trail by only 47-44 entering the fourth quarter. The fourth began with a layup by the Conchs Lanre Scott. Rice, who is 6-foot-5, tried to answer but had two shots blocked in a row by, of all people, the 5-foot-8 Renner.Coral Shores cut the lead to 49-47 on a 3-pointer by Jacobsen (who led his team with 19 points), but that was as close as the Hurricanes got. The Conchs, led by Scott and Renner, went on a 15-6 run for an insurmountable 62-53 lead. And with three minutes left, Rice fouled out. Down the stretch, Renner made six consecutive free throws to finish 13 of 15 from the line. It felt so good, it was like I was in a zone, Renner said of his night.Scott scored 13 points for the Conchs, who also got good games from center Anthony Cromwell (nine points) and guard Nathaniel Hayes. Key West shot more than 50 percent from the field and committed only 14 turnovers.We just keep fighting, said Coral Shores coach Bruce Teachy, who was well aware of the free-throw disparity. The Conchs attempted 34 foul shots 23 more than the Hurricanes tried. The Conchs will play at St. Brendan at 7:30 Saturday night. Coral Shores is off until Jan. 24.15-6 run nails down the victoryFrom Hoops, 1B Conchs hold off ChaminadeIt was noon Saturday, and the Key West High girls soccer teams game with Holly wood Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory was about to begin.The Conchs had gotten to bed about 1:30 in the morning after getting home from a 2-0 loss the night before at Coral Shores, a defeat that came two days after a 6-0 loss to Marathon. Bad week. We need a win, said coach Scott Paul, who looked fresher than his players.Ten minutes into the game, freshman Angela Niles beat a defender to the ball at midfield, drove down the right side and scored for a 1-0 lead. It was her 28th goal of the season and only the Conchs second in five games.But five minutes later, Chaminades Mary Budde scored on a rebound to tie the game at 1-1. Were sore and asleep this team is not a pushover, Paul observed. Late in the half, Chaminade had two scoring opportunities, but both shots were stopped by keeper Angela Martin, and the tie remained at intermission. Time and again throughout the game, Chaminade keeper Savannah Santos rushed out of the goal to beat a charging Conch to the ball. But midway through the second half, Santos was faced with Caila DeAbreu, who was bearing down on her from the right side. With Chaminades Mika Sheerin on her back, DeAbreu reached the top of the goal box and got a shot past Santos for a goal that put the Conchs ahead, 2-1. I thought to myself that I had to be creative, DeAbreu said later. I saw [Sheerin], turned, trusted my gut and scored.With time running out, Bridget Callahan, Chaminades best player, lined up for a free kick inside the 18-yard box. Five Conch players formed a wall in front of her. She kicked the ball softly over the wall and right to Martin, who caught it easily. Seconds later, the game ended.That scared me, Paul said of Callahans attempt. But she was too close to get power behind the shot.It was the last regular-season game for the Conchs, who improved to 14-8-1. They hosted Miami Jackson on Tuesday in a District 16-3A game that was completed to late for todays paper. They likely will play in the tournament title game at 5 p.m. Thursday at Tommy Roberts.DeAbreu scores the game-winner, tourneys nextBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GIRLS SOCCER Photo by BERT BUDDEA free kick by Chaminade-Madonnas Bridget Callahan sails over Key Wests wall toward the hands of Conch keeper Angela Martin late in Saturdays game.

St. Brendan drops ConchsWhen the St. Brendan High girls basketball team arrived at the Bobby Menendez Gym from Miami at 2 Saturday afternoon, it was locked and no one was in sight. Team officials called Key West High Athletic Director Neda Preston, who wasnt aware the game was on the schedule. She called coach Shonta McLeod who was also unaware and a flurry of text messages to players ensued. Eventually, the JV team and seven varsity players made it to the gym unprepared for games they had not anticipated. The varsity game got under way about 5:30 before a scant crowd composed mostly of St. Brendan parents, so there were few witnesses that watched the Conchs commit 29 turnovers and miss 23 free throws in the District 16-4A contest that the Sabres won, 57-37. The loss was the sixth in a row for the Conchs, who dropped to 4-11 overall and 3-8 in the district. Seventeen of the Conch turnovers came in the first half, after which the Sabres led, 27-18. Key West got to within 33-27 late in the third quarter after a 3-point shot and two free throws by Tanisha Multy. But St. Brendan, beating the Conchs down the court, went on an 8-0 run to end the period. Keep running, theyre getting tired, coach Mickey Falla told his players. More layups followed in the fourth as the Sabres breezed to a 25point lead. Multy led the Conchs with 15 points, Ryann Appleby had 10, Brooke Marsden had five, Nicole Konhaeuser Lopez scored four, Kaneya Mims scored two and Saria Smith one. Raquel Murillo and Megan Falla each had 14 points for the Sabres. The teams will play again at 5 p.m. Saturday in Miami.KEY WEST GIRLS HOOPS Wednesday, January 15, 2014 3B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Island Vision Careis now accepting NEW patients.Dr.John Sheldon's optometry practice services all ages,from kids to seniors.Monday Friday 9AM to 5PM Saturday by appointment6400 Overseas Hwy.

Shortly before intermission, Cane forward Hallie Paterson took a cross from midfielder Audrey Butler to score. Hallie settled it down and calmly made the shot, said the coach. Senior striker Cailin Reckwerdt beat pressure on the field and eluded the Conch defense to score on a tap in the second half. Center midfielder Ellie Leopold played one of her best games of the season, Paterson said. Ellie headed every ball that came her way, the coach said. Weve been working on using her height and she really did it against Key West.The victory moved the Hurricane record to 9-4-1 heading into the District 162A Tournament being played this week on Coral Shores George M. Barley Jr. Stadium.Getting to play district tournament games on their home field for the first time should be an added motivation for the girls, Paterson said.

The tie spoiled a strong effort by the Conchs, who, in their last regular-season home game, were trying for a twovictory weekend after defeating Chaminade-Madonna, 51, on Friday night.After Palmer Trinity took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Alejandro Martinez-Oletta, the Conchs Gavin Mock, late in the half, blasted a 30yard shot into the upper left portion of the net for his first career goal. The senior approached the ball as if he were still in a football uniform and kicking a field goal. Finally, he said. I had three opportunities in the last three games. The game remained a tense, hard-hitting 1-1 battle well into the second half. Key West coach Marc Pierre, a solitary figure in red shorts and a gray T-shirt in the center of the sun-struck sideline, shouted instructions in English and Creole. With about 25 minutes left, the Conchs Donte Thompson sent a long looping cross toward the net from the right side. Teammate Adam Swiecicki jumped and headed the ball past keeper Daniel du Feu for the goahead goal.The Falcons got their first shot on goal of the half 10 minutes later, but keeper Christian Lee made a nice save. Soon afterward, though, Lee came out of the net and got nudged as Alex Salgado headed in the tying goal.That goal should not have counted, Pierre said. He got pushed, but not hard enough to call something, Mock said.The tie left the Conchs with a 9-5-4 record. We played hard, said Pierre, who received kind words from the Palmer Trinity coaches.One of them, Graeme Griffith, said of Key West, They have a great side lots of speed and discipline.

Dolphins split two at homeThe Marathon High School boys basketball team split a pair of home games over the weekend, but it wasnt the win that had coach Kevin Freeman excited. The Dolphins defeated Palmer Trinity School, 4332, on Saturday afternoon, but lost a thrilling overtime game to talented District 163A No. 1 seed Westwood Christian School, 79-71. It was probably the best game weve had here in four or five years, Freeman said. The Dolphins lost to Westwoods Warriors by four points in Miami on Dec. 13, but Westwood didnt play its top four players that game. They brought the full squad on Friday, Freeman said, noting it features at least four players that are more than 6-foot-5. The game started out strangely, as Westwood felt the need to display its athleticism during pre-game warmups. The Warriors dunked several times not allowed by the Florida High School Athletic Association and were assessed three technical fouls before the opening tip. Damian Chavez made four of six free throws to give the Dolphins a 4-0 lead, but it didnt seem to matter much to the Warriors. They still led 26-11 after the first quarter, holding the Dolphins to just two made baskets. Ironically, Freeman said an alley-oop pass that extended the Westwood lead to open the second quarter ended up swinging momentum in the Dolphins favor. They were still up and celebrating and we took it personal, he said. The next break we had, our kids said, No more, and played the best second quarter Ive ever seen them play.Damian Chavez had nine of his team-high 20 points in the second quarter, while Nelson Rojas had eight. Marathon outscored Westwood 24-12 and trailed by just three, 38-35, at the break.The Dolphins trailed by just one point, 52-51, after three quarters as they continued to hang with the Warriors.Marathon had a chance to win the game when it set up a play with 11 seconds remaining and the scored tied 64-64. But the shot fell short and a putback attempt by Rojas was half a second too late.In the overtime, Westwood scored three quick baskets and took a lead from which the Dolphins couldnt recover.We made some shots but couldnt get back into it. I dont know if we were just happy to be in overtime with this team, but it didnt work out, Freeman said.Nelson had 17 points and five rebounds, while Cooper Chaplin added 17 points, eight rebounds and two steals. Saturday against Palmer, the Dolphins overcame what Freeman feared would be a slow start after Fridays game.I was a little worried about playing this game after Friday night because I didnt know if there was going to be a letdown, he said. The score was tied 10-10 after the first quarter and 1414 at the half. We want to run but they got back quickly on defense. They want to run and we got back, so it was who could make more shots in halfcourt offense, Freeman said.Marathon led 28-25 after three quarters and at one point trailed 32-31. But Chavez hit back-to-back three-pointers to put the Dolphins up five and held Palmer scoreless the rest of the way.Marathon (8-8) was scheduled to visit Greater Miami Academy on Tuesday.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BOYS HOOPS Photo courtesy KAREN McKEONMarathons Nelson Rojas attempts a shot over the outstretched arm of a Palmer Trinity School defender during Saturdays win over the Falcons.

Its been a success from last July 1 to Dec. 31, 185 pounds of various medications were dropped off, the agency says. Its open to everyone except commercial establishments. Proper disposal of prescription and over-thecounter medications that are no longer needed is important.

You can drop them off, no questions asked, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Locations are the Plantation Key substation (for pickup, call 853-3211 during office hours), the Marathon substation (for pickup, call 289-2430 during office hours), the Cudjoe Key substation (call 745-3184 for pickup) and the agencys Stock Island headquarters on College Road (call 7453184 for pickup).
