Local and state fire officials arent prepared to reveal the cause of an early Saturday fire that destroyed Saltys Waterfront Grill and damaged the adjacent 7 Mile Marina.Detectives from the State Fire Marshals Office said only that it does not appear to be arson and that the fire likely did not start in the restaurants second-story kitchen.Marathon Fire Rescue Chief John Johnson said damage to the bayside eatery is preliminarily estimated at $1 million. He said that figure would be modified once insurance investigators provide more information. It was a total loss. That was just our rough estimate, Johnson said. I dont know market value. According to a call history provided by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, the fire was reported at 2:59 a.m. Johnson said the first units were on the scene within four minutes and able to get water on the fire from a nearby hydrant. Saltys did not have sprinkler or alarm systems, which Johnson said could possibly have helped contain the fire and save the structure. Neither were requirements when Saltys was built, the chief said.

Rodd was cited in March 2012 for violating the citys no lodging in vehicles ordinance and adjudicated guilty this month and issued a $518 fine.Interim manager decision tonightThe Marathon City Council decided on Friday to wait until the citys top job is open before looking to fill it on a temporary basis. Thats expected to come today with City Manager Roger Hernstadts official resignation. The council meets to choose an interim manager at 6 tonight at the Florida Keys Marathon Airport firehouse. The meeting will be streamed on the citys website. Hernstadt accepted the city-manager job with Marco Island on Jan. 13 and worked out most of the details of a contract that day. But it wasnt scheduled to be approved by the Marco City Council until its meeting Tuesday. Hernstadts last day in Marathon is slated to be Jan. 31. He was hired in January 2010. The City Council next meets on Jan. 28. At that time, we could [officially hire] whoever the interim manager would be, Councilman Chris Bull said. That person would have just three days to spend with Hernstadt as a transition. Hernstadt has declined to publicly discuss his job status even at a City Council meeting after he accepted the Marco Island job. But its widely believed he resigned because he wanted an extension to his contract, which would expire in June 2015. Many believe he was using his recruitment for the Marco job as leverage against Marathon. That didnt work, as Hernstadt noted when questioned on that topic by the Marco Island council on Jan. 13. He pointed out that a majority of the Marathon council was unwilling to discuss an extension. Clearly, if I was trying to leverage, which I am not, its not having an effect, anyway, he said. Friday, the Marathon council appeared to settle on allowing a headhunting firm to conduct the search for a new manager.

On Jan. 2, Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller found him guilty and fined Rodd $518.Asked if he considers himself to be homeless, Rodd said, I do have some place I can lay my head down safely and my things are locked up. If Im homeless, its the Cadillac of homeless.He said contesting the fine is out of my economic realm of reality. Rodd supplied tax documents indicating an annual income from Social Security benefits of $8,892 per year. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services pegs the poverty line for a single person at $11,490 in annual income. Im not even close to poverty, Rodd said, adding that even if he could find a place in Key West he can afford on about $600 monthly income, Then I wouldnt have the money to eat or anything else. He and others use public beach showers and bathrooms at businesses, among other places. In 2012, the Key West City Commission passed a law outlawing lodging in vehicles on public streets and property. The rationale is two-fold: Lodging or camping in vehicles constitutes a hazard to the health and safety of the residents [and] visitors and the act of unlawful lodging or camping in vehicles [has] a significant negative impact that creates an adverse effect on tourism. I would like for the police to prove to me how I have created a significant negative impact on tourism, Rodd said. The law is based on a false premise.Cops enforce law banning living in autosBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comStill no cause found for Saltys blazeRestaurant wasnt equipped with sprinklersBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Photo courtesy of SHERIFFS OFFICESaltys Waterfront Grill and adjacent 7 Mile Marina burns early Saturday morning around 3 a.m. Marathon Fire Rescue Chief John Johnson said the bar and restaurant at mile marker 47 bayside is a total loss with damage preliminarily estimated at $1 million.See Fire, 2AFeds to designate critical habitatTo protect the Cape Sable thoroughwart, an endangered plant described by supporters as a showy but dainty little herb, the federal government will protect 4,802 acres of land in the Florida Keys as critical habitat for the species.The vast majority of the undeveloped habitat, more than 85 percent, is owned by the state or federal governments as park or conservation land.Rules intended to safeguard the habitat of the Cape Sable thoroughwart (Chromolaena frustrata) also apply to about 703 acres in private ownership on six Keys islands.The quality and quantity of the habitat will buy the plant time as the surrounding landscape changes or is lost to the sea, said Jaclyn Lopez, a Florida attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group.The designation written by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to settle a lawsuit filed by the Center for Biological Diversity becomes effective Feb. 7.For private landowners, it should have little effect, Fish and Wildlife spokesman Ken Warren said Tuesday.If you undertake a project that involves federal funding or a federal study, it possibly could affect you, Warren said. Otherwise, it wont.Previous critical-habitat designations in the Keys have limited flood-insurance provided through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, but those were mostly lifted by a revised 2010 ruling.Whether the new designation for the thoroughwart might extend to flood-insur-Endangered plant gets protection in Keys, GladesOUR ENVIRONMENT See Plant, 2ASee Manager, 3ASee Camping, 2ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

The Florida Highway Patrol says Mauricio Guerra, 41, was on his motorcycle leaving the Chevron station at mile marker 92 around 3:30 p.m. He lost control and was ejected onto the roadway in the left turn lane, and struck his head when the bike overturned. Tavernier Fire Rescue responded and Guerra was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he was listed in critical condition. Tuesday, the Highway Patrol said Guerras condition is improving. Its not clear whether he was wearing a helmet. Annual homeless count approachesOrganizers of the annual so-called point-in-time count of homeless people throughout Monroe County this week are finalizing arrangements with volunteers ahead of the planned Jan. 28 physical count.The lead agency is the Monroe County Homeless Continuum of Care. Board member Stephanie Kaple, supportive services director for the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition, hopes for a strong volunteer turnout.Tuesday, she was headed from Key West to run training sessions in Tavernier then Marathon. Today at 10 a.m., anyone interested in pitching in can attend the final volunteer workshop beginning at 10 a.m. at 2221 Patterson Ave. in Key West.This is a survey that is done on a national level across the country in different communities in the last week of January, Kaple said. The goal of the survey is to, one, tell us how many homeless people are out in these communities and, two, what kind of services do they need.The figures are used to help us access funding resources. These are the numbers the U.S. Depart ment of Housing and Urban Develop ment will be looking at. These are the numbers we work with, she said. Its critical.On the 28th, volunteers throughout the county will go to areas known to be frequented by the homeless libraries, soup kitchens, churches and the like and ask questions to determine who are these people? Kaple said.She listed several target spots, including the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island, beneath the Cow Key Channel Bridge, the Key Haven boat ramp, Enchanted Isle, the Vaca Cut Bridge and the Keys Area Inter denominational Resources office on U.S. 1 in Marathon, and parks and shopping centers. Mangrove areas are also checked.I try to make it less of a survey and more of a conversation, Kaple said. We know its not easy talking about shelter or lack thereof if youre someone who is struggling with that. We try to be very respectful. Based on historical pointin-time data, the population of the Keys homeless hit a high in 2002 of 2,151 people countywide. By 2007, the number was down to 1,122. In 2010, the figure was 1,040 and by 2013, down to 658 countywide.Before the Continuum of Care took over the count last year, the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League ran the survey.In her call for volunteers, Kaple cited the point-in-time national motto: Everyone counts, and that kind of goes two ways. We want everyones voice to be heard but we also want everyone to count.Other organizations involved include Monroe County Social Services, the Monroe County Association for ReMARCable Citizens, Keys Area Interdenomina tional Resources and the Salvation Army.Volunteers go in mangroves, other locationsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSOCIAL SERVICESWhen the law was passed, the city was cracking down on homelessness, similarly codifying more stringent laws regulating drinking in public and panhandling.That debate continues today with a focus on relocating the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island from property owned by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office to a new location. KOTS provides nightly shelter for about 140 men and women, plus showers. Rodd suggested a parking lot thats a KOTS-type facility. Until then, he said he fully expects to have regular encounters with police.Some van dwellers werent comfortable discussing their living situations on the record. One is a man who has been living in Key West for more than two decades, first on his boat and the past two years primarily in a Volkswagen van. Loads of people down here sleep in their vehicles, he said, describing just one encounter with local police in about two years.He said affording a fine similar to that levied against Rodd would be manageable but I wouldnt pay it. They can put me in the jail and feed me for 30 days or however long. I think its unconstitutional, he added. A man has to live somewhere. If he doesnt have a house, what can he do?Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said enforcement is across the board. Its complaint-driven but the officers also look for it when theyre out on rounds.One man would accept jail timeFrom Camping, 1A ing on the size, todays code would apply, he said, noting tiki huts at Marathon eateries Tarpon Creek, LuLus Garden Grille and the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar all have sprinklers.I believe the alarm and sprinkler would have provided us with early detection. By the time we got the call, the whole place was fully involved. The sprinkler hopefully would have kept the fire in check before it got real large, Johnson said.He said the departments primary concern during the fire was protecting exposures from 3to 4-inchwide burning embers across U.S. 1 near 11th Street.Johnson said the embers caused spot fires on the other side of the highway, as palm trees and bushes caught fire. Large embers also landed on a boat across the street, though it did not burn.Marathon Fire Rescue was joined at the blaze by Monroe County Fire Rescue units from Big Pine Key, Conch Key and Layton. Islamorada units covered Conch Key and Layton while they helped Marathon.Johnson said it took about half an hour to get the fire completely under control; he said his crew fought a defensive attack.Dan Rudacille, who runs Saltys with his wife Katie for property owners Paul and Peggy Bielik, said it was a normal Friday night when he left around 12:45 a.m. He said he got a phone call around 3 a.m. and didnt answer, but then did answer a text that followed shortly.What a shame, he said. Chief: Sprinklers would have helpedFrom Fire, 1A ance coverage could not be determined by FWS at press time. Overall, the designation covers 10,968 acres in South Florida, of which 6,116 are part of Everglades National Park. The plant once occurred in Monroe County and along Florida Bay in Everglades National Park, according to the Center for Biological Diversity. Now no more than a few thousand plants survive on the parks southern tip and on a handful of Keys. The states Division of Plant Industry, part of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, endorsed the critical-habitat designation. A 2010 survey found the Cape Sable thoroughwart found nowhere in the United States outside of Monroe and Miami-Dade counties had a total number of individuals less than 1,000, wrote division Director Richard Gaskalla. The thoroughwart has lance-shaped, aromatic leaves, and beautiful little lavender-to-blue flowers that attract bees, butterflies and birds, says the Center for Biological Diversity. The Cape Sable thoroughwort is a flowering perennial herb found in rockland hammocks, coastal hardwood hammocks, buttonwood forests, coastal rock barrens, and coastal berms, according to FWS. The decline of the Cape Sable thoroughwort is primarily the result of habitat loss from commercial and residential development, sea level rise, storms, competition from nonnative plants, predation by nonnative herbivores, and wildfires. Key Largo accounts for 3,431 of the local acres under critical-habitat protection, mostly in state parks and federal wildlife refuges. Private owners hold 457 acres of the critical habitat on Key Largo.For more on this story, go to www.KeysInfoNet.com.Sable found only in Keys, Miami-DadeFrom Plant, 1AVoters sign on for amendmentMore than 1,500 Florida Keys voters signed to help put a conservation-land referendum on the statewide November election ballot. An effort led by Floridas Water and Land Legacy Campaign collected enough verified signatures from state voters 690,802 as of Tuesday to add the vote on an amendment to the Florida Constitution this fall.Those are just the ones validated so far by local elections supervisors, campaign manager Will Abberger said. Were received more than 1 million.A count showed 1,510 voters in Monroe County signed the amendment petition.Floridians care deeply about our natural resources and understand the importance of our environment and clean water to the economy, Abberger said. Thats especially true in the Florida Keys. The Florida Supreme Court has approved the proposed amendments language so it appears almost certain that the referendum will be on the ballot. If approved by at least 60 percent of the November voters, the amendment would require that a third of taxes collected by the state from documentary stamps paid when real estate is sold be dedicated to buying land for conservation and recreation. That could total $10 billion over the next 20 years, according to the campaign. If approved, it would take effect in July 2015. The Florida Forever program, largely responsible for acquiring hardwood hammocks on North Key Largo and the Custom House in Key West, among other Keys projects, was virtually halted by state lawmakers five years ago because of economic slowdown. We started working on the amendment in 2009, Abberger said. In some years, the state spent $300 million to buy sensitive lands threatened by development. Three Florida Keys acquisition programs were funded by the Florida Forever program: The Florida Keys Ecosystem project, the Coupon Bight/Key Deer project and the North Key Largo Hammocks project. All three encompass a total of 19,961 acres, of which 10,075 now are in state ownership.Finishing the three Keys projects listed as Florida Forever priorities would cost an estimated $57.2 million, according to a Florida Department of Environmental Protection report. Groups supporting the amendment campaign include the Trust for Public Lands, Audubon Florida, the Florida Wildlife Federation and the Everglades Foundation.Land purchases would have a dedicated sourceLAND CONSERVATION FWS photo by KEITH BRADLEYThousands of Florida Keys acres have been designated as critical habitat for the Cape Sable thoroughwart, an endangered species.Pelican slashings apparently stopMaya Totman, director of the Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue on Big Pine Key, is overseeing the long-term rehabilitation of six protected brown pelicans found in the Lower Keys with their throats slashed last month.Totman and volunteers spotted a dozen similarly wounded birds in Lower Keys waters but were able to capture just half of them. A few have since been released.Miami-based veterinarian Don Harris, director of the Avian and Exotic Animal Medical Center, sutured the cuts, allowing the birds to eat again, Totman said. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Bobby Dube said his agency is investigating but we dont have any leads about who the slasher is. He said the attacks appear to have stopped. Anyone with information about who might have injured the birds should call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions wildlife hotline at (888) 404-3922.In 1970, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service listed the brown pelican as endangered after pesticide contamination almost wiped them out. In 1985, the population in Florida had rebounded to 60,000 and it was taken off the Endangered Species List in that part of its range.However, the brown pelican still is federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. Conviction for harming the birds under that law is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and/or a $15,000 fine; penalties for multiple violations can be stacked.Some injured birds still on the mendBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comLOWER KEYSPhoto courtesy MAYA TOTMANThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating a dozen instances of brown pelicans being found in the Lower Keys with their throats slashed.

Morris, human resources director for city Finance Director Peter Rosascos accounting firm.Rosasco served as interim manager from October 2009 until January 2010 before Hernstadt was hired. He wont serve this time because his redevelopment plans at Florida Keys Country Club present a potential conflict of interest.Councilwoman Ginger Snead, one of Hernstadts staunchest supporters, said hiring a headhunter to replace him would deflect any notion that the search is a facade of a hunt. Bull said headhunters are expensive but added its a heated political time in the city. I think [Morris] would do a fantastic job, but if we can get a headhunter to do it for a reasonable cost I wouldnt be opposed, he said. The council directed City Attorney John Herin to work with city staff to find a firm to conduct the search.What is known about the person who serves on an interim basis is that he or she wont be eligible for the full-time position. Bull said that would prevent applicants for the permanent job from thinking the interim manager has an inside track on the job.Whoever we get in there, they have to state that theyre not going to put their name in the candidate pool for the full-time job, he said.In addition, the council decided against advertising the position in local media outlets. Ramsay, Bull and Councilman Mark Senmartin said they feel word of mouth is more than enough to gather a list of qualified Keys residents interested in the job. Bull said anyone not already familiar with the opening doesnt have their finger on the pulse of Marathon. Whoevers chosen to follow the interim manager should be a Florida Keys resident, Marathon resident Josh Mothner told the council Friday. The temporary job is being advertised on the city website. Go to http://www.ci.marathon.fl.us/actingcitymanager/. The salary would be $10,000 monthly.Bill aims for LGBT protectionA Florida House bill aimed at protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents under an alreadyexisting state prohibited discrimination law has gained traction in recent days. Behind the push to enact House Bill 239 is Keys state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo), a prime co-sponsor of the bill alongside Rep. Joe Saunders (D-Orlando). The law would update state law to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, according to a Jan. 13 statement from Rascheins office. That same day, an 11member group that includes some of the states largest employers formed a coalition in support of the Competitive Workforce Ace (HB 239). It ought to be law. Its just adding LGBT people into the protected class as reasons you cant be fired or kicked out of your home, Raschein said. My role is to continue to get as many Republican co-sponsors as possible.The coalition includes Walt Disney World Resorts, C1 Bank, Carlton Fields Jorden Burt, CSX, Darden, Florida Blue, Haskell, HSN, Tech Data the University of North Florida and Wells Fargo.Raschein said there are a number of counties across the state enacting their own ordinance, which is a good sign. Monroe County and Key West have such laws. The game plan moving forward is working with Civil Justice [Subcommittee Chairman Larry Metz] on the language to tighten it up as much as possible, she said. I think well be in a favorable position to at least get a committee hearing. It takes a long time when youre passing a major piece of legislation, Raschein added. State representatives are allowed to file up to six bills each legislative session. Raschein has three remaining since HB 239 does not count against her allotment.Other billsRaschein said House Bill 47, aimed at increasing penalties for poaching large quantities of lobster, passed first hearings in both House (Agriculture and Natural Resources) and Senate (Agriculture) committees. Raschein sponsored HB 47 after Keys prosecutors and commercial fishermen voiced concern about state law whose language doesnt differentiate clearly between minor and major violations. Raschein is also sponsoring House Bill 469, a proposed amendment to the Move Over Act that would require drivers to move over for utility and sanitation vehicles on the roadside.Raschein also works on others as session nearsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTATE LEGISLATURE Wednesday, January 22, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com EXHIBIT A TO MEMBERS OF FLORIDAKEYS ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE ASSOC., INC.NOTICE OF ELECTION OF FOUR DIRECTORS The Board of Directors of Florida Keys Electric Cooperative Association, Inc.

But as he leaves for a new job in Marco Island on Floridas west coast, where he starts Feb. 3 as that citys top administrator, many in Marathon arent feeling much sadness. Thats largely due not to how he performed his job, because he did it generally well, but for the way he decided to go out. He basically broke up with his partner and was waving farewell while looking in his rear-view mirror without explaining why. But we all know why, and the fact he wouldnt just voice it to the public even to this day left many people sour. In the world of municipal administrators, life can be short. Hernstadt, a professional bureaucrat, knows that. Thats why he wanted another extension on his contract, which is due to expire in June 2015 (not that that matters anymore). He wanted stability, which is what any working person wants. But following Novembers city election, it was clear Hernstadt didnt have the solid support of elected leaders he once enjoyed, and wasnt going to get an extension or raise that would have likely gone with it. When interviewing for the Marco Island job, he told that citys council that he never was accepted by the people of Marathon. But Hernstadt chose that path by not really making an effort to become part of the community he led. On Jan. 13, the Marco council offered him the job and he accepted without giving the Marathon City Council a chance to counter Marcos offer. Thats even though Vice Mayor Chris Bull has said Hernstadt told him he would give Marathon that chance.So he decided to go, which is not uncommon in municipal government. Marathon has had city managers in the past, and no doubt will have many in its future.But by not explaining to the residents in a public forum, or even in the media, why he decided to leave is a disservice and, we believe, downright rude to the community. We wish Hernstadt well in his new job and thank him for all he accomplished in Marathon. Unfortunately, we might be in the minority, and thats on Hernstadt.More transparency at GuantanamoTwelve years ago, 20 captives in the war on terror arrived at an isolated U.S. Navy base on the eastern tip of Cuba to inaugurate Camp X-Ray, opening a dismal chapter in the history of U.S. warfare and the treatment of detainees. The makeshift facility at Guantanamo Bay was born of a desperate effort by the Bush administration to find a place to house the captives of the irregular war against organized terrorists that would be beyond the reach of the Geneva Conventions and the intrusions of obstreperous attorneys and nosy journalists. Under Gen. John F. Kelly, institutional censorship has increased. Authorities no longer disclose the number of prisoners engaged in a campwide hunger strike, which once again focused unwanted attention on conditions at the prison. And a military staff attorney assigned to the camp for ex-CIA captives was allowed to testify under a pseudonym a mockery of genuine trial proceedings.The existence of Guantanamo is a national embarrassment, but erecting new barriers against news reporting will only make matters worse. As long as the prison exists, maximum transparency should be the operative rule.

Whos to blame, union or School Board?At the end of 25 contract bargaining sessions between the Monroe County School District and the United Teachers of Monroe, and a letter of intent signed by all parties, then rescinded by the union, people on both sides expressed regret that the superintendent threw in the towel. But who could blame him? Twenty-five sessions at six hours on average per session. There is a calculated cost to the district for our superintendent and his team doing this work. They spent an inordinate amount of time attempting an inhouse solution. Enter Mr. Bob Norton, labor attorney and threetime successful defender of the district against challenges by the union. These union-initiated challenges also cost the district money. Mr. Norton is not as expensive as committing our superintendent and his staff for 25 days. In fact, I expect Mr. Norton, an expert on this process, to cost far less and to be far more effective over the rest of the process.The reason the board wants to keep permissive language in the contract allowing for unpaid furlough days is that it allows us to have impact bargaining if revenue comes in drastically below budget instead of declaring a fiscal emergency. The option of declaring a fiscal emergency has been used only once that I know of statewide, and you invite state intervention when you spend down your fund balance to a meaningless cushion.This language in the contract is more than 40 years old. We used it for the first time in 2011 and 2012. In 2011, the Legislature passed a law that prohibited us from continuing to raid our fund balance to give raises. So in response to the greatest financial meltdown since the Great Depression, we imposed furlough days after the union walked out of the impact bargaining to immediately balance the budget. The language in the contract allows us to cut pay in an emergency without forced layoffs of employees. If the state intervened, it would have no problem forcing layoffs. While other school districts held tight on raises from 2006 to 2010, the Monroe County School Board gave raises year after year by dipping into our reserves, hoping each year that property values would improve. After seven years they finally have. For the first time in seven years, we have extra money. Since the board did not need to negotiate a contract to restore the employees pay cut due to the furlough days, we did it as soon as we had the money last September. It was the right thing to do. When cities and counties suffer property-value declines, they can raise the millage to generate a steady revenue stream. School boards do not have this option. Their millage is maxed out. And with 80 percent of our operating budget going to people and the rest for utilities, supplies and insurance, our only option is to have fewer people or cut pay, or both a terrible choice. We did a little of both without violating the class-size amendment to the state Constitution. The latest offer the union turned down on our teachers behalf was a 2.49 percent raise. Plus, an extra day for training at the rate of $290 plus all teachers (the great majority) in Title One schools would receive an extra $450. They currently get $50, not reflective of the extra work in Title One schools. To explain that in real dollars, a beginning teacher making $43,177 would get $1,075 (2.49 percent raise) plus $290 (an extra day) plus $450 (Title One increase) for a total of $1,815. A senior teacher with a bachelors degree at Step 26 who makes $71,669 would get $1,785 plus $290 plus $450 for a total of $2,525. Unfortunately, the governors advertised $2,500 raise requires more money than his mandated tax brought to us. We have to allocate part of that money to the charter school teachers and it doesnt include the 14 percent cost of benefits that go along with that raise. The total salary package for teachers is just over a million dollars. The total package for non-teachers is roughly just under $250,000. These are our lowest-paid people, in many cases. Their raise is 2 percent and the union wanted them to get 1 percent so more money would be available for the teachers. This is on record, and remember, those employees also had furlough days. Its all moot now, as an impasse has been declared. In order to get our teachers the governors raise, we recommended bringing the impasse directly to the board since thats where the decision is ultimately made. But here again, the union said no and that will delay the process and put it at risk of having the money being taken back by the governor. Andy Griffiths has been a member of the Monroe County School District since 1992. In contract talks with the Monroe County School District, we began the interest-based bargaining process with our eyes wide open. The budget reduction language was identified early on by the United Teachers of Monroe as being a deal breaker. Both parties knew there were two ways for this permissive language to be removed from the employees contracts. The budget reduction language was going to come out one of two ways: It was going to be agreed upon to be removed from the employees contracts, or the parties were going to reach an impasse and, regrettably, the School Board chose the latter.The School Board wants to tout that it is the final decision maker in an impasse. That is true. What it isnt telling the public is that permissive language such as the budget reduction language cannot be imposed.The employees deserve to have an enforceable contract. Keeping that permissive language in our contracts, unfortunately we have learned, doesnt allow for that. Therefore, it was repeatedly stated in bargaining sessions that there is nothing UTM would accept in exchange for retaining that language.This is the language that the Monroe County School Board invoked for the first time in about 35 years. UTM was willing to come back to the table and find a resolution together three months after the School Board had unanimously approved a contract that it apparently couldnt afford. As I have been involved in multiple negotiations before this recently failed effort, I can attest to the intent of that language. As it was included back at a time of mutual trust and respect between the board and the employees, it was included to say hey, if we have some type of issue or financial emergency at some point, lets both agree to come back to the table and find a resolution together. Regrettably, this language opened the door for the district to walk away from its signed and legally binding word of the last contract and impose its resolution to issues at will.The Monroe County School District started the 2013-14 school year with an 11 percent total ending fund balance, yet it was still reducing its employees pay by seven furlough days. The School Board had no need for this; it hadnt reduced its budget nor had it invoked that language for this school year.Seven furlough days was another issue that was identified early on in the interestbased bargaining process. Yet they claim that it was all them they were our heroes, they restored our pay.Lets be clear about this: Restora tion is when you pay back what you have taken. The employees had 14 days of pay taken out of their paychecks, none of which has been restored. All that really happened was the employees were brought back to the salaries they were making in 2010-11.During the final hours at the table, the School Board offered to remove the budget reduction language in exchange for an expansion of its management rights, which comprised language that would essentially take the budget reduction language out of one section of the contract and put it in the management rights section.Another section of the management rights expansion proposal included language that would allow the School Board to transfer an employee from Key West to Key Largo for work every day. The language that we currently have in our contract in terms of transfers requires our employer to consider the employees place of residence. Since our district is 105 miles long, the UTM bargaining team didnt feel that expanding those rights would be fair and in the employees best interest.The teacher salary increase that has everyone believing that teachers will receive a $2,500 raise wasnt actually funded in such a way that that would be true. However, in UTMs proposal, every teacher, assistant principal and principal would have received a raise of about $1,800 for the 2013-14 school year. This is who the law states the increase is intended for. But not in Monroe.The School Boards last proposal had a percentage of what each employee would receive for a raise, not an equal share of the money spread among all of our hard working teachers and other employees. While some districts threw other money in the kitty to give their employees at least a $2,500 raise, our district wanted our teachers raises to range from about $870 to $1,400. Both sides could agree to raises, but the permissive language in the contract means the School District could change its mind before the ink dried on the contract and before a dime of benefit ever made its way to teachers and other deserving employees of the Monroe County School District.This could have been a time of great healing. How ever, it does not appear to be what the School Board wants.Holly Hummell-Gorman is president of the United Teachers of Monroe.Union risks losing state raise money Board caused the impasse in contract talks GRIFFITHS HUMMELL-GORMAN Cops: Man burns, steals carsA Key Largo man stole his daughters car, burned it, then stole a car from another man who was gassing up his vehicle at a nearby gas station, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office said. Robert Hoffman, 50, of Ryan Avenue in Key Largo was nabbed Saturday by the Maryland Transportation Authority Police around Baltimore. He had just ditched the car he reportedly stole in the Keys, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says.Deputy Becky Herrin said Hoffman is accused of stealing his daughters 2007 Ford Fusion while she worked an overnight shift. She said she was sleeping after work Friday just before 10 a.m. when her father entered her bedroom.He threw her car keys at her and said, I just blew up your car, the daughter told police. She went outside and saw her car on fire. She told Detective Yunier Galvez Hoffman had been on a multiple-day drug and alcohol binge.After reportedly setting his daughters car on fire, he left the house. Minutes later, Herrin said, Sheriffs Office dispatchers received a call from a man at the Tom Thumb store at mile marker 104 who said hed just fought with a man who stole the car he was driving, a 2001 Mercury sedan. The car belonged to the mans roommate. The caller said the man, later identified as Hoffman, ran up to him, threw him to the ground and yelled Im stealing your car. He said he fought with Hoffman, who jumped in and drove off with the pump handle still in the gas tank. The Sheriffs Office issued a notice to be on the lookout for the car, which was entered into state and national crime computers as stolen.Saturday afternoon, Herrin said, the Mercury was found after the license plate was read going through a tunnel on Interstate 95 in Maryland. The Maryland police tried to pull Hoffman over but he refused, Herrin said. Instead, he took off, and crashed after an eight-mile chase.Hoffman ran away from the crash and, before he was apprehended, he had cut his own neck, Herrin said. He was airlifted to a downtown Baltimore hospital for medical care. He faces possible charges of two counts of grand theft auto, carjacking and felony criminal mischief.CRIME FRONTCuban migrants landSix Cuban men arrived off Sea Oats Beach in Lower Matecumbe Key Tuesday morning aboard a small wooden boat.The men, who all appeared to be in good health, told U.S. Customs and Boarder Protection agents they arrived early Tuesday while it was still dark outside. Their vessel was powered by one small inboard engine, said Agent Frank Miller, operations officer of Border Patrol Sector Miami.Border Patrol agents turned the men over to the nonprofit Church World Services. Under the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966, Cubans who make it to the United States, even without a visa, can stay here. They can apply for permanent residence after one year and one day in the country. But if they are stopped at sea, they are repatriated back to Cuba.There are typically two ways Cubans arrive in South Florida by makeshift boats, as was the case here, or by smugglers who ferry migrants via fast speedboats, sailboats, yachts and any other method that may blend in with legitimate boat traffic, Miller said.Makeshift vessels are typically used by migrants who cant afford the money to pay smugglers.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA Hoffman caught in Maryland after chase

Unfinished work by an unlicensed contractor at an 83-year-old womans home put a Key Largo man in county jail, says a Monroe County Sheriffs Office report.Francisco T. Ruiz, 44, was arrested Jan. 12 on a warrant issued in August 2013 charging him with stealing more than $300 from a senior citizen, a felony, and falsely claiming to be licensed contractor, a misdemeanor. Ruiz remained in the Monroe County jail Tuesday under a no-bond warrant from Miami-Dade County. Bond on the local charges is $10,000. Sheriffs Office Detective Yunier Galvez said in a report that in July, an elderly resident paid $400 to Ruiz for work at her Key Largo home on Bowie Lane. Ruiz represented himself to her as a contractor as he has on numerous other occasions, according to the report. Galvez confirmed Ruiz does not hold a contractors license. Ruiz called the woman the next day to say the work would be delayed because he hurt his back, Galvez reported. The defendant later told the woman his injury would prevent him from working, but promised to refund her money, Galvez reported. The $400 was never returned and the womans attempts to reach Ruiz were fruitless. Information received by the Sheriffs Office indicates the Miami-Dade warrants reference charges of grand theft and probation violation.

Cops: Man ripped off elderly womanNo bond for unlicensed contractorCRIME FRONT RECOGNIZING KING Navy firm on proposed leaseThe Key West City Commission was poised to accept a five-year lease with the U.S. Navy for use of the Outer Mole Pier as a cruiseship berthing despite the terms of the deal expected to cost the city at least $225,000 per year. The citys current lease, agreed to in 2007, expired June 30 but was extended until Jan. 31. It gives the Navy 40 percent of cruiseship disembarkation fees levied by the city. Since 2007, the lease has generated around $10 million for infrastructure improvements to the pier. Terms of the new deal laid out by Robert McDowell, the real estate product line coordinator for Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast in Jacksonville, dictate $3.75per-passenger payment to the Navy for the first 200,000 passengers. Its $3.50 per passenger thereafter but not less than $225,000 per year. The city now charges $10.68 per passenger disembarkation. Of that, $4 goes to the Navy. Based on materials provided by City Manager Bob Vitas, the city projects 141,000 cruise passengers arriving at the Outer Mole in fiscal year 2013-14. The city has to pay to transport passengers from the Outer Mole to downtown. Once the numbers are crunched, the city ends up losing about $10,000 per year, Vitas said. In a Jan. 15 e-mail to Tim Yonce, leader of the Naval Facilities Engineer ing asset management team, Vitas asked for a six-month extension of the current in case the commission votes down terms of the new deal. I believe it is imperative that we reach an agreement to extend the license agreement in advance of the City Commission meeting, he wrote. This consideration would also allow the scheduled cruise ships to continue arriving. Yonce replied the same day that no extension is coming unless the city accepts the lease terms provided. The commission was set to take up the issue after press time on Tuesday.Under current terms, the city loses moneyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, the city of Key West hosted a cookout at the Truman Waterfront soccer field followed by a parade through Bahama Village onto Duval Street.

Story, 3B Hurricanes fall but advanceCoral Shores High School scrambled to blunt Gulliver Preps attack for most of the District 16-2A girls soccer championship Friday in Tavernier but the visiting Raiders two scores were enough in the 2-0 shutout.Still, as district runner-up, the Lady Canes (11-5-1) stay alive in the Region 4 playoffs with a Thursday trip to face District 15 winner MAST Academy (16-2-4) on Key Biscayne. Playing at home beneath a golden moon on a chilly 60-degree night, the Lady Canes locked down Gulliver (14-0-2) in a 1-0 game after Gullivers Samantha Lujan dropped in an ideal chip shot from inside the far corner of the 18-yard box about 10 minutes into the title match. The score stayed that way in the well-played bout until less than two minutes remained. Coral Shores mounted a sterling defense in the backfield and midfield, especially considering the ball spent most of the 80-minute contest on the Canes side of the halfway line.The Hurricanes came within an inch of forcing a tie after a Gulliver foul and, with about five minutes left, gave Coral Shores a free kick.After some fakes, center midfielder Ellie Leopold took the shot. The ball rocketed toward Gullivers net but hit the crossbar and deflected away. It was the Canes nearest thing to a goal in the match on their home field at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium. Gullivers quick and accurate-passing Raiders limited the Hurricane attacks, with Cane striker Cailin Reckwerdt trying to elude blanket coverage.On the backside, Hurricane defenders Amber Hansen, Katharine Hamer and Noelle Perry, with help from the midfield, stayed on the move andCORAL SHORES GIRLS SOCCERGulliver hits controversial penalty kick in final minutesBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores defenders Amber Hansen (14) and Noelle Perry cut off a Gulliver Prep attacker in Fridays District 16-2A girls soccer championship game.

The Dolphins will have to find offense somewhere else this season, as thensenior Taylor Konrath scored all three Marathon goals in the win. Luckily, the Dolphins still have sophomore goalie Sacha Olivera on the roster. Then a freshman, Olivera played an outstanding match against Evangelical and stopped numerous shots on goal, including a penalty kick to preserve a 2-1 halftime lead. Should the Dolphins advance, they would face the winner of District 15 champion Miami Country Day and District 16 runner-up Palmer Trinity School in the next round. The Dolphins played Country Day to a 1-1 tie in Miami on Jan. 10, and defeated Palmer, 4-3, in a miraculous overtime victory last Thursday. Sydney Konrath scored from around 35 yards out to tie the game with just seconds remaining in regulation, and Chandler Elliott scored early in suddendeath extra time to give Marathon a second straight district title. Dates and start times have yet to be announced for potential second-round matchups.Boys are 5-11The Dolphin boys (5-11) finished their regular season with an 8-0 mercy-rule loss to a quality Westminster Christian School team in Miami on Friday. A longtime District 161A opponent, the Warriors were bumped up this season to Class-2A. Dolphins coach Jim Murphy said he used the game more for a warm-up to Tuesdays opening-round district tournament game at Palmer Trinity School.

We have transitioned into a more normal wintertime weather pattern, and the pelagics are responding well to the drop in water temperatures. There is an abundance of sailfish off the reef edge right now. Theyre being taken spraying ballyhoo as well as by live-baiting in the deeper, 130to 180-foot areas. The sails are eating a wide variety of live baits. Ballyhoo, pilchards, cigar minnows and goggle eyes are all working well.A mixture of king mackerel, blackfin tuna and the occasional dolphin and wahoo are in the same areas.The wrecks are holding a good population of amberjack and mutton snapper. Live baits are key and, for the AJs, the bigger the bait, the better.The reef action has slowed a bit as the fish acclimate to the cooling waters. But there are some king and Spanish mackerel in Hawk Channel. Live pilchards do the trick.As they get used to the cooler waters, the snappers should begin biting again, and you can expect to catch muttons and mangroves. The yellowtails will wake up with even warmer waters. From the bridges out to Florida Bay, the mangrove bite remains excellent, with plenty of fish in the twoto three-pound class. There are also a lot of yellowjacks, hogfish and nice size yellowtails around the bridges.And further out in the bay, there is all the Spanish mackerel you can handle. Shrimp on a jighead is your bait of choice.On a sad note, our condolences go out to all those who lost their boats and businesses in the devastating fire at Saltys Waterfront Grill and the 7 Mile Marina over the weekend.

Goalkeeper Pookie delPino turned in another solid effort.The games most controversial moment occurred when Gulliver was awarded a penalty kick just under the two-minute mark. Lujans shot hit the post and rebounded, where Raider midfielder Tiffany Lusic scored on the second chance.Cane players protested the penalty kicker was the first to touch the ball on the rebound (a penalty ricochet off the post must touch another player, on either team, before the kicker can shoot again).A timeout was called while officials discussed the situation, then upheld the goal. Cane coaches, players and fans were vocal in their dissent but the score stood. Start time in the regional quarterfinal round Thursday at the Key Biscayne field is scheduled for 4 p.m. (earlier than originally scheduled). Lady Hurricanes advanceFrom Hurricanes, 1B leads throughout the second half, and Guilfoyle finally took her sister out midway through the fourth quarter.Key West, which lost its seventh consecutive game and fell to 4-11, had only six players, five of whom scored. Tanisha Multy led with 14 points, followed by Ryann Appleby (eight), Kaneya Mims (seven), Nicole Konhaeuser Lopez (five) and Brooke Marsden (four). The Conchs made 15 of 44 field-goal attempts for 34 percent.Nine Patriots scored, with Katherine Jim following Jimenez with 13 points and Kisandra Martinez adding 11.After the game, Jimenez said of her little sister, Shes coachable, and you have to tell her to slow down. She can never get enough. The Conchs losing streak extended to seven Saturday night when they lost to St. Brendan, 60-41, in Miami.Loss streak reaches sevenFrom Conchs, 1BConchs 2nd among 16 teamsFreshman Nick Piraino and senior John Pozzi continued their strong mat performances last weekend, leading the Key West High School wrestling team to second place at the 16team Titan Duals at Golden Gate High in Naples.Piraino, at 106 pounds, went 8-0 before getting pinned in his last match, and is now 32-10 for the season. He gets better every match, said coach Chaz Jimenez. Pozzi, who has had to overcome a concussion and shoulder surgery, went 9-0 in the 195-pound class, pinning each opponent in the first round. The Conchs went 8-1 in their best mainland showing of the season. On Friday, they defeated Evangelical Christian, 81-0; American Heritage Plantation, 48-21; Golden Gate, 51-28; and Port Charlotte, 61-15. On Saturday, they defeated Lemon Bay, 51-27; Florida Christian Academy, 72-10; Sarasota, 52-27; and LaBelle, 48-33, to win their pool. Then they crossed over to play Palmetto Ridge, the other pool winner, and lost to the perennial powerhouse, 48-29, in the title match before a big crowd. The tournament marked the return of Angelo Guieb, the defending state runnerup. Despite a shoulder that still bothered him, Guieb went 6-0 at 120 pounds.

Their second most (80) came in their previous game against Greater Miami Academy.Our offense is finally clicking and were taking good shots, coach Kevin Freeman said. Were playing with a lot of confidence. The Dolphins actually struggled out of the gate on Friday and trailed the Crusaders, 16-11, after the first quarter.But the Dolphins out scored Hollywood 22-9 in the second quarter and took a 33-25 lead into the half. Shemar Fantroy scored seven points in the quarter, while point guard Jonathan Guerra scored five, including a three-pointer at the buzzer.The lead was 50-40 after the third quarter, but Marathon came out firing in the fourth led by guard Nelson Rojas. He scored 14 points in that quarter alone. We couldnt miss in the fourth quarter, Freeman said. Up until then, we hadnt played our best game, but we got a lot of easy transition baskets. Rojas finished the game with 21 points and eight rebounds, while Damian Chavez had 17 points and three assists. Guerra continued his stellar ball handling of late, scoring 15 points and notching seven assists with no turnovers. He has 15 assists and just one turnover in the past two games. Big man Cooper Chaplin turned in another solid performance, scoring nine points with 10 rebounds and five assists. Fantroy finished with 12 points.

Anything Goes borrowed from a 1934 Cole Porter musical serves as the theme of a new exhibit in Key West showcasing quirky curios that curious locals have amassed over the years.The exhibit, Key West Collects, at the Custom House Museum, 281 Front St., features everything from a collection of swizzle sticks from pre1959 Cuba to umbrella covers (no umbrellas, just covers).The exhibit opened Jan. 2 and 3 with receptions attended by more than 500 people, according to museum curator Cori Convertito. The display, produced by the Key West Art & Historical Society, runs through March.We started with an e-mail blast looking for interesting collections and we had a lot of feedback, Convertito said.For instance, part-time Key West resident Nancy Hoffman loaned her whimsical collection of umbrella covers. In July 2012, it was certified as the largest such collection by the Guinness Book of World Records. Curiosity is what got me started, Hoffman writes about her collection, which includes more than 1,000 covers from 55 countries shes collected since 1994. She also operates an umbrella-cover museum in Peaks Island, Maine. Each covers story was unique, Hoffman said, and those [stories] became of paramount importance. Part of Hoffmans collection fills the corner of a firstfloor exhibition space at the Custom House. Its alongside a collection of colorful Haitian paper mache wall hangings on loan from Wood and Joan Cornell, Inuit sculptures from Steve and Ruth Cottrell, and Jeff Johnsons vintage cocktail shakers. Also on the cocktail front, Larry and Brooke Myers, part-time Key Westers since 2000, put on display their collection of pre-1959 Cuban swizzle sticks. About 60 of the colorful stirrers, some from the 1920s and 1930s but mostly from the 1950s, are on loan from Myers collection. History buff Myers said hes fascinated by all things Cuban prior to Fidel Castros 1959 Communist revolution.His collection, while mostly swizzle sticks, includes postcards, documents and other Cuban artifacts.The Myers were able to travel to Cuba in 2008 and visit, among other iconic places represented in the swizzle-stick collection, the El Floridita bar in Havana where writer Ernst Hemingway, who lived in Key West in the 1930s, frequently drank.It was very poignant, Myers said, compared to the fantasyland conjured up 50 years before that. We like it from a cultural and a historical standpoint. The Custom House features permanent and rotating exhibits and is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students and children 6 and older.

There will be wine and soft drinks at a cash bar. In a ground-floor lab of the New Engineering Building at the University of Florida, radiologist Keith Peters and mechanical engineer Ghatu Subhash are building the football helmet of the future. Theyve spent several months dropping weights onto different types of foam padding material to test their impact absorption rates in the Center for Dynamic Response of Advanced Materials and tinkering with a system of fluid-filled reservoirs they say will absorb more blunt force than traditional materials. Still in the early stages of development, they arent ready to test it on humans yet. But they are optimistic that their design will work and eventually replace the kind of padding used in todays football helmets and other protective headgear. The inspiration came from watching the illegal streetracing flick Fast 2 Furious, Peters said. In one scene, a car crashes into a barrier of water-filled canisters. The water explodes out of the canisters, dissipating the energy from the impact. Unfortunately, that kind of impact barrier is a one-shot deal, he said. Instead, Peters and Subhash devised a system combining a fluid-filled reservoir connected to an empty reservoir. When something hits the fluid-filled container, the fluid shoots into the empty reservoir, then slowly oozes back into the container, thus softening the impact dramatically.The device is not really different in size to standard padding, Peters said. This is using simple technology that should be able to fit together nicely inside a helmet.The technology is based in part on the work that Subhash has done over the last 15 years in improving protective gear for soldiers, firefighters and others in high-risk situations. Their tests have shown that their fluid-filled pads absorb five times the impact of traditional padding. They estimate one to two years before such a product is functional and ready to be produced to retrofit helmets.The padding decreases the direct impact from a blow to the head. But it doesnt deal with the torquing, or rotational, impact from glancing blows. Once Subhash and Peters perfect their padding system, they will set their sights on designing the outer shell.Preventing rotational impact would require a redesign of the helmet itself, Subhash said. Subhash has been drawing schematics but has not gotten to developing a prototype helmet yet. Testing has been delayed and an infusion of investor dollars is needed to get them to the next level, Subhash said.But they are hoping the NFL and other sports organizations will take an interest in their research. Peters and Subhash estimate their designs could reduce head injuries by 40 percent or more.That is a lot to consider, given that 340,000 sportsrelated traumatic brain injuries occur each year, some of them permanent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And professional football players are struck in the head or neck at least once a game, Peters said. Last year, the NFL agreed to pay out $765 million to settle a concussion lawsuit by 4,500 former players. The time has come to revolutionize helmets, they said. While helmets have evolved to protect heads from a deadly knee or elbow penetration to the skull, Peters said, there has been no advance in concussion protection since the early 20th century. And they believe their improvements can be made inexpensively, for any type of helmet bicycle, football, police and fire protection. The whole point is to make it less expensive, to put it into small strips that could go into a helmet, Subhash said.
