Big homeless summit todayFinding a new Lower Keys site for the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter must be the focus of a special meeting today, says Monroe County Mayor Sylvia Murphy.Since were being evicted from where it is, we have to see if we can find a place for KOTS, Murphy said Tuesday. Until we have a place to put KOTS, we cant do anything else about the homeless.Monroe County commissioners and Key West city commissioners meet in the joint session at 2 p.m. today in the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue in Key West.Scott Pridgen, chairman of the Monroe County Homeless Services Continuum of Care, a coalition of nonprofit agencies, said he wants to see local governments acknowledge that all of the Keys has a homeless problem, so we need to share ideas and focus on how to deliver services to those who need assistance.We cant just bicker over whether we have a problem, Pridgen said. We have to recognize that we do.... There are a lot of issues without easy answers. KOTS, a 150-bed facility at the Monroe County Sheriffs Office headquarters on Stock Island and operated by the city for about $450,000 annually, provides bunkhouse-style overnight housing but little else.Key West Mayor Craig Cates had been pushing for a center that can provide referrals, outreach and more and was focused on a former Easter Seals building, also on Stock Island.

The Federal Aviation Administration requires the exercise every three years. 9/11 memorial to be unveiledMore than 13 years since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks shook the country, the we will never forget mantra remains as powerful as ever.So much so that former New York City career firefighter Joe Reres felt compelled to visit the Marathon Fire Rescue station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport Monday afternoon, three days in advance of a ceremony unveiling a memorial to the disaster. The memorial was four years in the making.City Fire Marshal Adam Geaneas moved mountains to see the Pentagon-shaped memorial constructed just inside the fire station front door. Its encased on five sides with glass that has the names of all 343 firefighters who died following the attacks etched into it.Reres, who winters in Marathon, was familiar with a large number of those rescue workers. He knew several personally and his sons played softball in the city police and firefighter recreational leagues against many others.He had his papers in his pocket, Reres said, pointing to Rescue Co. 1 (Manhattan) firefighter Gary Geidels name on the glass. Geidel, 44, was set to retire after 20 years. He had plans to buy a house in upstate New York with his wife Mathilda. He had a wife and one baby, Reres said. His father was a firefighter.

Charters differ from public schools in that teachers are not bound by rigid curriculum structures. There are 1,175 Keys students in charter schools, according to the Monroe County School District. Thats nearly 14 percent of the districts 8,426 students. The schools have a combined annual budget of more than $6 million. At the Key West Montes sori, the enrollment period started on Feb. 24 and runs until April 25. During that time, parents of prospective students at the school for students in kindergarten through eighth submit an applic a tion through www.keywestmon tessori.com, culminating in a May 9 lottery. The school runs at capacity with 118 students. The Sigsbee Charter School, which offers preference to dependants of activeduty military in the Lower Keys, cuts off enrollment on Aug. 1. That school has more than 500 students in kindergarten through eighth grade.At Key West Collegiate, the only charter high school in the Keys, Principal Cory Oliver is trying to boost enrollment, which has struggled to reach its 100-student goal. Enrollment has oscillated between 40 and 50 students.We can offer a college feel for students that are dedicated to pursuing a college14 percent of Keys students attend themBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSenate action on rates gets nearThe U.S. Senate is being lobbied hard to include second-home and commercial property protections in a vote likely next week to adopt the U.S. Houses Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act. Approved by a 306-91 vote on March 4, the House bill (H.R. 3370) includes provisions that would mitigate exponential rate increases for primary homeowners that were the result of the 2012 Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act. But the bill offers much less protection to second homeowners and commercial properties, categories that Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe Executive Director Chic Wagner said the grassroots nonprofit fought hard to include. Even the original Senate version approved in January offered minimal protections to those property owners. We are lobbying the entire Senate to urge them to reconsider second homes and businesses for all the reasons weve always said, Wagner said. We dont know what our success rate is going to be, but were doing everything we can. Wagners skepticism is because many feel the Senate will accept the House flood bill with minimal changes due to the large majority by which it passed.One of the most important considerations in including second homeowners is that many of those properties are used as rental properties for lower-wage earners that include service industry workers and professionals alike.Theyre just as big a part of any coastal communitys2nd properties, commercial sites still an issueBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFLOOD INSURANCESee Schools, 2ASee Insurance 2A
of a lawsuit settlement with the neighboring Sunset Marina Condominium Homeowners Association, which contends the shelter opened in violation of county code.Without a temporary shelter, Key West police and the Sheriffs Office cannot enforce laws against people sleeping in public places, federal courts have ruled. The homeless people come from all over the country and they go to Key West, Murphy said.With the limited land available in the Florida Keys, few other sites can be found that will not spark opposition from nearby neighborhoods or businesses. Thats why Murphy wants todays session to center on a shelter site.Monroe County spends hundreds of thousands dollars to hold arrested homeless people in custody and provide medical services for the jailed, she said. Murphy said she is not inclined to put a lot more into the homeless needs from the county budget. According to a Jan. 28 socalled point in time survey, the Continuum of Care counted 693 people in Monroe County who could be considered homeless. Of those, 298 were on the streets or unsheltered; others were in KOTS or other temporary housing.The 693 does not include 144 people with no permanent address who were being held in the Monroe County jail.A more detailed report is expected to be released later this month. Others have contended the 693 figure is too low. Information included as background material for todays meeting includes:Lower Keys Medical Center reported that in 2012, it provided free care to 1,698 patients considered homeless for a total cost of $8.3 million in acute care and $1.1 million for behavioral care.Monroe County Social Services spent $15,300 on cremations for deceased homeless people in 2013, and $17,141 on prescription medicines.

SUPP Martha Louise Morelli Supp of Marathon FL, originally of Highland Park, NJ, passed away peacefully at the age of 86, on Saturday February 8 2014. She is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Joseph, their five children Lawrence, Joseph, Dolores, Catherine, and Martha, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren, and her three siblings Louis, Dolores, and Francis. Martha graduated from Highland Park H.S. NJ and Parsons School of Design in N.Y.C. Before her illness she had been a member of the Marathon Water Color Society, Sombrero Country Club, Marathon Yacht Club and past President of the San Pablo Womens Club. A Memorial mass will be held Saturday March 15, 2014 at 11:00 at San Pablo Catholic Church 550 122nd St, Marathon, FL 33050. Martha, a strong supporter of Pro Life asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to RESPECT LIFE MINISTRY 3600 SW 32nd BLVD West Park FL. 33023 in September 2010. He learned that materials from the World Trade Center site were being stored in a hangar at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. When the Port Authority [of New York and New Jersey] decided to release 10 percent of the metal for cities and municipalities to have to build memorials, I started the process of trying to obtain it, he said. His initial request was denied, but Geaneas said he pushed on and got a yes on Oct. 4 2011. The reasoning was they had over 1,300 requests and it was more than what they had. They had to take their time and sort everything out, he said. On Dec. 27, 2011, a 13foot-tall piece of metal from the site was assigned to Geaneas and he, along with co-worker Eric Dunford, drove to New York to pick it up on March 28, 2012.Its a piece of the exoskeleton of the buildings. If you were to look at it, theres a channel in there and its what the window washers actually rode up and down the building on, Geaneas said.Geaneas said the idea for a design came to him immediately. I knew what I wanted to build. We didnt know what we were getting until we laid eyes on it, but I knew the vision I wanted, which is what it is now, he said. The piece of metal is centered inside the glass, along with four American flags. Marathon Fire Rescue worker Larry Bohnen, along with Marathon resident Tom Fraelich, constructed the majority of the memorial. Donations were made to offset the cost.

The rent continues to go up and that continues happen. Enacted on Oct. 1, the Biggert-Waters Act was aimed at stabilizing the $24 billion National Flood Insurance Program deficit. The program is overseen by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.Another major concern for rate relief is that second homes and commercial properties could be excluded from language the House bill contains urging FEMA to restrict policies from having annual premiums that exceed 1 percent of the total coverage.There continues to be mixed reports. Some continue to say that its 25 percent [annual increases] until it meets whatever actuarial rate FEMA decides, Wagner said, referring to future rate hikes.Language like that in Biggert-Waters is what stuck many Keys residents with staggering insurance premium hikes and had an immediate negative affect on a slowly recovering Keys real estate market. Residents paying an average of $1,100 per year were quoted annual premiums as high as $40,000.Hopes high for reliefFrom Insurance, 1AThe United Teachers of Monroe and the Monroe County School District have reached a tentative agreement for raises for school-related personnel, but theyre still far separated in their talks for a contract for teachers.UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said the two sides, meeting March 5, agreed on 2 percent raises for the approximately 115 foodservice workers, bus drivers and maintenance staff.The cost is around $100,000 of a $1.25 million raise pool provided by the state Legislature in its 2013 session.During the impasse hearing moderated by Scott Milinski with the National Mediation Board, UTM leadership signaled a lengthy road ahead in its deadlock with district administration over a oneyear employment contract and state-mandated employee pay raises for teachers.In Florida, final contractual say rests with school boards. Nothing I say is binding, Milinski said. Also not binding is any decision from the Florida Public Employee Relations Commission, arbiter of formal unfair labor practice filings, which Diane Falvo, a labor specialist with the union umbrella Florida Education Association, said would be forthcoming.This same process played out from 2011-12 over the last three-year teacher contract.School Board member John Dick called the process an exercise in futility. Its [ultimately] coming back to the board and we can impose the raise and the management rights, which the union leadership knew all along and shouldve told their members.The management rights hes referring to allow the board to impose unpaid employee furlough days, which it did in 2011 and 2012 to save $1.7 million each year and avoid layoffs. UTM wants that language removed and if its not, Falvo put the board here on notice we will file a charge of unfair labor practice. The districts labor attorney, Bob Norton, referencing the previous protracted and complicated impasse and appeal process, said that contract was tested in every forum possible by FEA. The districts batting average was 1,000 percent. On the raises, the state Legislature last year earmarked $1.25 million for raises, which has yet to be divvied up as a function of the collective bargaining process. The district has been trying to get the teachers to accept a raise structure, Norton said. That [money] is available to the district but just sitting in Tallahassee.This round of bargaining is for a one-year contract retroactive to June that covers the districts 525 teachers and 114 school-related personnel.Before Norton and Falvo got involved, HummellGorman and Superintendent Mark Porter met more than 25 times last year before talks broke down.Milinski has until March 20 to make a recommendation.But the union and the district still far apartBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSPart of deal reachedFor plan rewrite, its all detailsA series of five two-day meetings over the next four months is designed to craft possible alternatives for marine protected areas in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.The Ecosystem Protection working group of the Keys Sanctuary Advisory Council aims to present its proposals to the full council in early July.As part of a rewrite of the sanctuarys management plan, the local advisory council will consider a review of sanctuary regulations including the rules and boundaries for marine zones in the sanctuary and surrounding national wildlife refuges. The sanctuarys first management plan took effect in July 1997. That plan has changed little, except for a 2000 update to include the Tortugas Ecological Reserve and a 2007 update to list current goals and activities.The Ecosystem Protection group 16 voting members from the Keys community was able to adopt a proposed plan for wildlife refuges with minimal controversy last year.However, draft sketches of new or expanded no-take zones offshore created significant opposition from people working in fishing and tourism. Those sketches were dropped before any detailed discussion or vote.After a meeting earlier this month on how to devise new alternatives, the group has planned regional meetings to go over nearby marine protected areas in detail.Sessions open to the public are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Theyre at:Upper Keys region, March 25 and 26 at the Hilton Key Largo Resort, mile marker 97.Middle Keys region, April 17 and 18 at the Marathon Garden Club, mile marker 50.Lower Keys region, May 13 and 14 at the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center at the Truman Waterfront in Key West.Marquesas region off Key West, June 10 and 11 at the Eco-Discovery Center.

The Studios of Key West, poised to start a $2 million renovation of its new building at 533 Eaton St., will take the first step Thursday when the city Planning Board reviews the nonprofit arts groups proposed major development plan. In November, the Studios bought the former Scottish Rite Masonic Center for $2.2 million, replacing its leased space at the White Street armory building. The plan for the new building is for a fall opening following the renovations that would include adding a 200-seat theater, large gallery space, nine artist studios, two classrooms and a digital media lab. The Planning Board meets at 6 p.m. Thursday in Old City Hall on Greene Street. Based on documents submitted to the city, the Studios wants to convert the second floor of the three-story building into the theater with an adjoining lobby, lounge and bar. The Studios also wants to add a roof garden accessed by a 465-square-foot elevator/stairway penthouse. That requires a variance to the citys height limit for the downtown commercial zoning district. The height limit is set at 35 feet although the building, constructed in 1950, now peaks at 47.5 feet. City code still requires a variance to move up to the planned peak of 55 feet, which the Studios says would accommodate the roof garden. If approved by the Planning Board approval, the next step is a hearing before the Historic Architectural Review Commission to determine if the plans are consistent with Old Towns historic buildings. That board meets March 25. If OKd there, it goes to the City Commission on April 1. The Studios was founded seven years ago with the goal of bringing artists to Key West through residencies, and connecting them with residents through classes and other events. Its Artists in Residence program will continue to house artists in small cottages on White Street. The Studios is fundraising for the renovation and donations can be made through its website at www.tskw.org.

Attorney files for judge seatIncumbent Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Tegan Slaton, representing Group 4 of Floridas 16th Circuit (the Keys), has drawn two challengers in his bid for re-election to a six-year term. Although assignments are sometimes shifted, Slaton primarily hears family, civil and probate cases.Key West attorney Bonnie Helms filed to run on March 4. She has practiced family, civil and probate law for 23 years and said that experience would serve her if elected.Having been in the trenches on the other side, Helms said, I think I have a lot to offer.Key Largo attorney Jack Bridges, the elected District 5 member of the Monroe County Mosquito Control District Board, filed paperwork on Jan. 9 to run for Slatons seat. He wont run for re-election to the bug board.Slaton didnt return a call for comment by press time. I believe my experience serving in almost all types of cases that routinely come before the court will be beneficial as well as my experience serving as a Circuit Court magistrate, Bridges he said. We really need to work toward putting kids and families first. The Group 4 election is one of three for the Monroe County bench this year.In Group 1 contest, incumbent Judge Mark Jones, elected in 1996 over then-Judge Richard Fowler and re-elected to six-year terms without opposition since, has a challenger in Donald Barrett, a Key West attorney in private practice since 2010.Barretts primary history is as a prosecutor, serving in the Monroe County State Attorneys Office from 2001 to 2004, again in 2006, and then again in 2009. He also was a prosecutor in Live Oak and Lake City. In Group 3, incumbent Judge Luis Garcia has yet to draw a challenger; he filed on Nov. 25. Garcia was appointed in 2000 by then-Gov. Jeb Bush and subsequently re-elected in 2002 and 2008.

The main issues are business parking and stormwater runoff. Construction for both projects would involve widening shoulders to provide bicycle lanes, repairing sidewalks and upgrading and replacing pedestrian signals. The two issues that came up [Friday] were the parking and the stormwater runoff, Ramsay said. For the most part, Old Town businesses in Marathon rely on angled parking in front of their properties because there is generally no space for parking lots. Ramsay said DOT officials agreed to walk the area in front of Royal Furniture, a business that could be affected next month, with owner Ross Elwell. Ross did that and said it went terrific. Its retaining parking and giving them a chance to dress up Old Town, Ramsay said. Elwell did not return a call for comment by deadline. The sides did not agree so quickly on DOTs plan to address stormwater runoff. When it came to stormwater runoff, they were asked if they had any runoff plan in place and the answer was no.

That same group of students is eligible to receive free breakfast.For every 100 local students that receive free lunch, 43 also receive free breakfast, according to the Food Research and Action Network. The districts 2013-14 budget estimates $1.5 million in federal money to support the free lunch program and another $384,451 for free breakfast.Experts say kids who start the day with breakfast can be more successful than children who dont.In an e-mailed statement, Food Research and Action Network spokeswoman Sara McGovern said that if 70 students per 100 students receiving free lunch in Monroe also ate free breakfast at school, additional Monroe County children would have received breakfast each day and the county would have gained $186,872 in additional federal resources.Its research says Keys rank 56th out of 67MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday, March 12, 2014 MM 48 Bayside 1688 Overseas HighwayTiki Bar on the water, its quiet, clean and the food is delicious.

The board made its decision following a presentation by architect William Horn.The districts lease on city of Key West-owned property on College Road expires on Jan. 15, 2015, and the city has made clear it wants to address issues with the homeless before making any decisions about the sites future. Mosquito Control has leased the property for some 35 years.It would save everybody money if we could stay in this building and get a long-term commitment but it doesnt seem like the city is willing to work with us, Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage said.Whenever we have a lease, theres going to be an end point in sight and we have to have a backup plan. I think at least right now we need to move forward, Commissioner Jack Bridges added.According to the proposed site plan, the building would sit on the front right (east) corner of the property along U.S. 1. A 3,500-square-foot chemical storage building would be centered on the rear property line adjacent to employee parking, while district vehicle and equipment storage would be on the front left (west) corner along U.S. 1.The consensus is thats what we would send to the county, but at least two commissioners said the final building could be smaller. You can always make it smaller without going to the county, Director Michael Doyle told the Keynoter. Doyle said the next step is to have the countys Development Review Committee consider approving a zoning change on the property from suburban commercial to light industrial. Were planning on getting on the April 29 agenda, he said. If they approve it, the questions that need to be answered are will our facility and people fit on the property, and that looks like a yes.The last step, according to Doyle, would be for the Mosquito Board to sign off on a final budget for the site. Horn said on Sunday that it would cost roughly $2.5 million to build. The land would cost $749,000.Doyle said the board would likely address final cost at its April 16 meeting in Key West. Well have more detailed plans then and the architect will be able to give us a tighter estimate, he said.New building could reach 4,200 square feetBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLBoard OKs initial design planStudent dies after snorkeling tripAn Annapolis, Md., man died Sunday after a snorkeling accident days earlier in Atlantic waters between Islamorada and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo. Grant Eney, 21, was a student at the College of Charleston in Charleston, S.C., and was in the Keys for Spring Break. The snorkeling accident happened last Thursday. He was on life support until he died at 8:15 a.m. Sunday, the Capital Gazzette reported, quoting Eneys father.Monroe County Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman said he believes Eney died at Baptist Hospital in Miami, so the Miami-Dade medical examiner would be responsible for the autopsy.The Gazette and the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier reported that Eney and his friend had been snorkeling for lobster. When the friend emerged, there was no sign of Eney. He was later found in 55 feet of water. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office responded to the accident, which happened when Eney and a friend were snorkeling for lobster. Deputies performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation.Body found floating in Upper KeysUPPER KEYSKeynoter StaffBaltimore Raven Reid awaits court dateNo court date had been set as of Tuesday for a player for the NFLs Baltimore Ravens who was jailed in Key West early Sunday morning on two charges of misdemeanor battery. Jah Reid, 25, a 6-foot7, 335pound tackle drafted in 2011 in the third round of the NFL draft out of the University of Central Florida (hes from Haines City), was released on $2,000 bond following his arrest at 2 a.m. at the Red Garter, a strip club at 208 Duval St. According to a Key West Police Department report, Reid and Edmond Mussa, 21, bumped in the bar. They had words, then Reid allegedly head-butted Mussa and punched him until he hit the floor. Then Reid allegedly started kicking him. When security guard David Smith tried to break up the fight, Reid allegedly punched him in the face. While that was going on, Benjamin Buxton, 23, who apparently was with Reid, entered the fray and started punching Mussa. Another security guard, Jason Martinez, tried to pull Buxton off Mussa, and Buxton started punching Martinez, too, police say.

There are so many people to thank for the endless hours of work that are involved with the National Pig Days effort each year. Every year, so many step up to the plate and make it a huge success. We will be reporting the amount raised for both Grace Jones and Kreative Kids Academy as soon as all the paperwork is done but for now, just a great big thank you and kudos to all involved. Jan Burch MarathonStand united against abuseI am the president of Christinas Courage in Key West. This is the only center within the county that services rape and child-abuse victims. Our board wanted to organize an event that would help fund the center. We decided on our first 5K run/walk. We had never been involved with such an event and it was, to say the least, challenging. We immediately called the Southernmost Runners Club, which carried us the rest of the way. They are an amazing group of people. Don Nelson met with our board and explained all details from the beginning to end. We got weekly calls from Don and Dennis showing their support and encouragement. They provided us with lots of ideas for getting our race publicized and physically stuffed our flyers into thousands of bags to promote the cause. The second huge sponsor was the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation. This amazing organization held a bingo night for the center at Boondocks Grille and Drafthouse on Ramrod Key that raised well over $1,000 for Christinas Courage. We cant thank this organization enough for its contribution and dedication to the entire community. Lastly, the Zonta Club of Marathon, which supports us throughout the year by supplying our center with supplies and equipment needed for the investigation of sexual and child abuse. They not only monetarily sponsored this event; they had many donors participate in our race and many of the Zontians walked it themselves, showing true support for the victims of Monroe County. This past year, they have been responsible for paying to send our investigators to training to help improve the way we handle cases involving human trafficking and abuse toward women and children. I again cannot express our gratitude enough for these outstanding organizations that made our event successful, but more importantly helped the victims of Monroe County that suffer from child abuse and sexual abuse. Linda Mixon Sheriffs OfficeEveryone wins at bingoWe always knew that this is paradise and the people who live here are the best. It was not until we ran a bingo for the Relay for Life at San Pablo Catholic Church on March 1 and asked some of our merchants for donations that the depth of their generosity was indicated. The bingo was a success and all of the money will be used by the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those who face cancer will be supported, those lost to cancer will never be forgotten and one day cancer will be eliminated. Thanks to all who donated and attended. Fran Newman Marie DeGraw Ted Gryczewski Marathon Relay for LifeFeds are opening ocean to exploration, flies against proven climate changeThe U.S. Interior Department is about to open up a portion of the Atlantic Ocean to oil and gas exploration after shutting that door in the 1980s. While there is a ban on actual drilling in the Atlantic until 2017, Interiors move is clearly a prelude to new drilling, which is troubling in light of the Obama administrations admirable efforts to reduce fossil-fuel consumption to combat climate change. Florida fought hard for that drilling moratorium, and it should fight Interiors new survey plan, too. The Eastern Seaboard area to be opened to seismic surveys for oil and gas ranges from Delaware to Cape Canaveral. Environmental groups are opposed, saying the testing, which involves underwater explosions, will harm sea life, particularly whales and dolphins. The intense noise of the explosions could kill them, the opponents say. Compressed air guns creating repeated bursts of sound as loud as a howitzer are used beneath the sea, often for long periods of time. But the jury is out on just how injurious the blasting is for dolphins and whales. Scientists disagree on whether the loud, repetitive underwater noises are lethal, but most do agree that the blasts could alter sea mammals long-term behavior, affecting their migration patterns, mating habits and even how they communicate with each other. There are 34 species of whales and dolphins, including six whale species that are endangered, in the proposed survey area. Florida should oppose the survey plan for other reasons, as well. It has long supported drilling bans off both coasts because of the pollution threat to water quality and our tourist-luring beaches. Just think back to the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico that tarred beaches, contaminated fisheries and killed all manner of sea life. Many coastal businesses were harmed and ultimately received damage payments from BP. Apparently, Interiors goal is to further wean the country off imported oil by eventually tapping into an estimated 3.3 billion barrels of oil and 312 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in the Atlantic. But there is another, better way to reduce U.S. foreign oil consumption using less of it. We need more development of practical renewable energy sources, more conservation measures like continuing to improve vehicles and power plants fuel efficiency, as well as making businesses, government offices and private homes more energy efficient. Many coastal communities in South Florida are finally beginning to take steps to prepare for the inevitable rise in Atlantic and Gulf waters. Unfortunately, there are no similar actions in Tallahassee. Opening up the waters to eventual oil and gas drilling off our East Coast should be considered a real economic and environmental threat to the wellbeing of the Sunshine State.

GUEST COLUMNLower rates encourage building in sensitive areasNo one can deny the appeal of living beside or near Floridas fabulous beaches and coastal areas. The beauty and charm simply cannot be found anywhere else in the country.Unfortunately, these also are the areas most likely to be hit hardest by storms, hurricanes and, now, rising sea levels. This raises a difficult dilemma for Floridians: Should all taxpayers continue to be required to subsidize the flood, wind and disaster insurance for those who live in the most vulnerable areas of the state? And should new development be curtailed in these areas given its significant economic impact on taxpayers and the greater risk of loss of human life?The answers are important to the 1000 Friends of Florida because of our ongoing involvement in coastal development patterns and what that means to the environment and taxpayers. This issue has garnered quite a bit of attention with the passage of the federal 2012 Biggert-Waters Act, which is designed to end taxpayer subsidization of the National Flood Insurance Program. In particular, this act was meant to end the subsidies paid for by all federal taxpayers for very low, nonmarket-driven insurance premiums for properties in flood-prone areas.It also was intended to prevent an increase to the programs deficit of more than $24 billion, much of which has accumulated since Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy. Because of a substantial backlash, both the U.S. Senate and House have now voted to undo major provisions of Biggert-Waters.Compounding the problem in Florida is our states Citizens Property Insurance Corp., which, while only providing wind damage coverage, is also subsidized by Florida taxpayers. You can see this subsidy reflected on your car insurance and homeowners insurance premiums where a surcharge is being assessed to cover losses from Floridas 2004-05 hurricane seasons. Can you imagine how much this subsidy will rise, both public and private, when a future major storm event crashes into one of Floridas heavily populated areas? A 2010 planning scenario for a Category 5 storm hitting the Tampa Bay area projected about $250 billion in economic losses of all kinds, including property damage, business losses and flood damage. This is why the 1000 Friends of Florida has joined a diverse group of business, conservation and nonprofit organizations known as Stronger Safer Florida to promote appropriate changes to current insurance programs, curtail unreasonable subsidies and offer market-based insurance alternatives.Included in this mix should be increased emphasis on community resiliency, mitigation options, affordability considerations, private insurance incentives and a phase-in of necessary rate increases to eliminate subsidies.An unintended consequence of artificially lowered insurance premiums is to encourage even more building in the most vulnerable parts of the state, where loss of life and limb is likely to be greatest.As the 2014 Florida legislative session began on March 4, a number of bills have been introduced that address these critical issues. All citizens of Florida need to pay attention to proposed changes to coastal insurance programs and the states catastrophe fund for disaster payouts now, before the inevitable next major disaster strikes our state and we all pay the costs. Charles Pattison has been president of the 1000 Friends of Florida since 1998. He has 31 years of experience in land use, including as executive director of the Monroe County Land Authority from 1985 to 1987. He also is a former Monroe County planning director and one of the chief authors of the countys first land-use plan. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald. PATTISON Pig races are part of National Pig Days at the Stuffed Pig restaurant in Marathon. Two preschools reap the financial benefits. County comes down hard on code violationsViolations lodged against two Key Largo homeowners for ignoring vacation-rental laws will be considered by the Monroe County Com mission at its March 19 meeting in Marathon. During the regular session at the Marathon Government Center, county attorneys will seek approval to file for cease-and-desist injunctions in two separate cases where the homeowners appealed thousands of dollars in fines.A county staff report says the homes continue to offer short-term rentals of less than 28 days, which is not allowed.The cases include:A 224 Tarpon St. home that has been under investigation since 2010. A special magistrate fined owners Gilbert and Dalia Sanchez $2,000 in a January 2011 hearing. That was paid. A second case at the same address was brought in September 2011, which resulted in a $15,000 fine, plus $1,000 for each day of violations. The owners appealed the fine to Monroe County Circuit Court, but Judge David Audlin Jr. In September, he upheld the fines for irreparable damage to the surrounding neighborhood.A 32 S. Bounty Lane home owned by Leland England and Kristy Redlich resulted in a $12,000 fine in a July 2012 hearing where the owners did not appear. The owners appealed the fine but Audlin upheld it. The owners of both homes seek hearings at the Third District Court of Appeal. Other items on the March 19 agenda include:Discussion of agreements with the state Depart ment of Transportation and the city of Marathon for repair and rehabilitation of the Old Seven Mile Bridge.Commissioner George Neugent wants to ask if there are ways to prevent derelictvessel sinkings in the wake of the recent sinking of the 81foot tug Tilly off Key West.Consideration of possible mooring fields at Jewfish Creek and Buttonwood Sound off Key Largo, and Boca Chica Basin in the Lower Keys.Homeowners want matter heard in courtMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com HELPING HABITAT Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYIan Bomley, a Connecticut high school student spending Spring Break in Key West, takes part Tuesday in a Habitat for Humanity of Key West and the Lower Keys rehabilitation project on Thomas Street in Bahama Village.

Story, 4B All working for the ConchsSophomore Greg Veliz drove in four runs and junior Brandon Presley didnt allow a hit in four innings Saturday as the Key West High baseball team breezed to a 16-0 victory over Keys Gate in Homestead. The states 10run mercy rule stopped the game after five innings. Veliz, who entered the game with a .467 batting average, hit a two-run home run over the right-field fence to give the Conchs a 2-0 lead in the first inning. He singled to drive in two more to cap a six-run fifth. Keys Gate, which lost to the Conchs, 10-0, earlier in the season, walked 11 batters and hit five wildness that was a factor in all four Key West scoring innings. Designated hitter Darren Miller, who had struck out three times in his previous game, rebounded with three hits, including a tworun double. Hugo Valdes had a double, Chris Varela had a sacrifice fly and Anthony Henriquez drove in two runs with a double. Andy Perez and Hunter Sellers also had hits. Presley, a 6-foot-5 lefthander, struck out four and walked one in his four innings on the mound. Steven Wells pitched the fifth and allowed Keys Gates only hit. The Conchs came into the game with a team earned run average of 1.64. Although Keys Gate and Key West are both in District 16-4A, the game did not count in the district standings. The Conchs, who are 30 in the district, improved to 8-2 overall. Keys Gate, a second-year program, dropped to 1-5, its only victory coming against Coral Shores of Tavernier.

Later in the inning, Ransom had the bases loaded, but Laguna got the next two batters on a pop to the mound and a fly to left field.The Conchs had taken a 1-0 lead in the first when Angela Niles, who had walked, scored on a groundout by Green.

Mark Keller hit a shot down the right field line and the right fielder made a great play to catch the ball and end the inning. If that falls in, we tie the game, Leal said.The Eagles tacked on two runs in the top of the sixth and another three in the seventh to pull away for the victory.Kevin McKeon, Jesse DeLuca and Raymond Crespo had the Dolphins lone hits.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLPhoto courtesy KAREN McKEONMarathons Kevin McKeon slides safely around a tag at home during an 8-2 Monday baseball loss to Tampa-area Carrollwood Day School. Tennis Conchs sweep Monsignor PaceHes played tennis only for two years, but Key West High junior Chris Bujak has developed the strokes, including a classic serve motion, that have made him competitive though rarely victorious when he faces far more experienced No. 1 singles players. Friday afternoon on one of the Conchs courts, for example, he went up against Monsignor Pace sophomore Josvany Lesende, whos been playing since he was 4.Both players, despite the wind, looked sharp warming up, both hitting rockets. But shortly after the players wished each other good luck, Lesende, a slight 125-pound figure in black, went to work. The much-bigger Bujak did not get a point in the first game.Lesende whistled winners into the deep corners (It helps, he said later) that Bujak couldnt handle. The Pace player talked to himself after making errors, but they were rare. It was over not too long after it started Lesende won, 8-0, the final point coming on a service winner. You destroyed me, the ever-gracious Bujak said to Lesende as they shook hands. Man, that was awesome.As other players took the court, Pace coach Vincent Newman said of Lesende, who transferred two years ago from Dade Christian, Im very happy he came to Pace.Dissecting his defeat on a bench, Bujak said Lesende wasnt the best player hes played this season, but the best hes played against recently. It was the cleanliness of his shots, he marveled. He was right on the mark and I couldnt do anything about it.As for Lesende, he said it was just a matter of hitting the sweet spot on the racket.After that match, the quality of tennis fell off considerably, but both the Conch boys (6-1) and girls (5-2) teamed up for a sweep of Pace for the second time this season.Bujak got some revenge on Lesende later in the afternoon when he and Kyle Campbell won No. 1 doubles.The Conch boys swept the other singles matches No. 2 Campbell (8-2), No. 3 Simon Dayer (8-3), No. 4 Colin Hetzler (8-1) and No. 5 Chun Poon (8-1). Kevin Cheng and Matt Cheung won No. 2 doubles, 8-2. For the Key West girls, No. 1 Hannah Brown lost to Cassandra Lemieux, 8-1, No. 2 Laura Hall won, 8-6, No. 3 Fernanda Caceras won, 8-3, No. 4 Tatum Flowers won, 80, and No. 5 Olivia Maliki won, 8-2. Pace won No. 1 doubles but Caceras and Flowers won No. 2 doubles.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST TENNISPhoto by BERT BUDDEThe Conchs Fernanda Caceras returns a shot during her singles victory against Monsignor Pace.

Marathon is fielding some inexperienced players on both teams and coach Chris Bull said Ransom was too strong with which to compete.They brought down a squad thats not entirely their top five. It was just a testament to the depth of their team. They beat us in all the singles matches and we decided to call the match, Bull said. The boys match was called after Ransom swept all five matches, while the girls match ended after the first four singles matches. Ransom was without its No. 5 singles player, but already had enough wins to earn the match victory. We had some fun and just put four courts on and mixed it up in doubles, Bull said. The Dolphins were anything but sore losers after the match. Bull said the team joined Ransom for dinner at Keys Fisheries. The Dolphins are scheduled to visit Palmer Trinity School today at 3 p.m. before hosting Key West High School at 3 p.m. Friday at the Marathon Community Park.MARATHON TENNISBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com www.Keys InfoNet.com
mangrove snapper, cobia and Goliath grouper.The weeks bestFormer high school football cronies Cody Shiver and George Gaston from Kennesaw, Ga., took a detour off Duval Street to fish a midnight charter off Long Key with Capt. Chuck Brodzki. Their early-season tarpon trip ended with the two anglers out-muscling five large tarpon, ranging from 50 to 90 pounds, on 20pound spin tackle using silver dollar blue crabs. Capt. Greg Poland also reports tarpon fishing is heating up around the Islamorada bridges. He had quite a few bites using live mullet, but it was hard to keep them on, with hooks thrown after many jumps. Poland has also been yellowtailing in 60 feet with good results.The SeaSquared crews spent the week fishing the channel humps, bay and gulf areas. Our anglers caught cobia, kingfish to about 35 pounds, large mangrove snappers, hogfish, Spanish mackerel and a few sea trout. We also did quite a bit of catchand-release shark fishing, with 13 toothy critters the tally for one of our outings.Capt. Jeff Knapp of Beckoning Charters in Marathon continues to put his anglers on tarpon at the Seven Mile Bridge. Terry Novak of Byron, N.Y., fed an 80-pounder to a 600-pound hammerhead shark, while her husband Kevin landed a 40-pounder.Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, reef/wreck, sailfish, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Porkys Bayside Marina in Marathon.

The family business of selling groceries began here. Their initial home is at the core of additions and gardens.712 Eaton St.By 1897, Richard Peacon Jr., who was born at 320 Peacon Lane, expanded his grocery business to become a prosperous merchant. He built this house up the hill from his roots. Its known by its distinctive and rare octagon front. The house was renovated in 1975 and later owned by Calvin Klein.1112 Elgin LaneOn the east end of town around the turn of the 20th Century, a family of spongers built their cottages near their boats; the waters edge was closer than now. Descendants kept the old family home until 1993. An extensive renovation completed by the second (and current) owners gives respectful nods to those nautical predecessors.

With the score tied at 3-3, the Lady Canes No. 2 doubles team of Joslyn Schipper and Rachel Walters pulled out an 8-4 pro-set win in the deciding match. Rachel and Joslyn did a great job of holding on for the teams win, co-coach Kelly Sereikas said. Even though theyre a new doubles team, they played well and did what they needed to do. We knew we had a tough one with the girls, coach Blake Fry said. They followed through and did not disappoint. After No. 1 Erica Williams lost an 8-4 decision and No. 2 Ellie Leopold was edged 9-7, the Canes needed to sweep the singles in the third through fifth spots. The Cane netters did. No. 3 Juliana Pena won 8-2; No. 3 Walters won 8-0; and No. 5 Maria Lozada won, 8-6. At No. 1 doubles, Pena and Leopold teamed for the first time in a closely contested 8-6 loss. With some practice and a couple more matches, Ellie and Juliana are going to be a tough combo, Sereikas said.LaSalle dominated the boys matches. LaSalle is very strong and [the Cane boys] played hard, Fry said. The key is to keep their focus and be ready for districts.Coral Shores is on the road today at Monsignor Pace and home against St. Brendan at 2 p.m. Tuesday.Hurricane girls pull out win on home courtsCORAL SHORES TENNISBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores senior Ellie Leopold volleys a shot Monday in the girls match against Immaculata-LaSalle. The Lady Canes prevailed in a 4-3 decision to keep a team win streak alive. Tough weekend for DolphinsTheres a fine line between a tough softball schedule and an impossible one. Marathon High School learned that the hard way at this past weekends Speedball Classic tournament on the mainland and in a Monday home game against West minster Christian School.The girls went 0-4 in that stretch, which included games against two of the Miami Heralds top 10 South Florida teams in Westminster and Pines Charter School. Another, Hollywood Cham inade-Madonna Prep, was just outside the top 10. Marathon coaches purposefully eliminated schools like Westwood Christian and Colonial Christian from this years slate because they felt the girls gained nothing from lopsided mercy-rule victories. The idea was to face stiffer competition in preparation for postseason play. At the Speedball Classic at Silver Lakes Park in Pembroke Pines, the girls got all they could handle in Friday losses to Pines Charter (9-0) and Riverdale High School (13-1) and a Saturday loss to ChaminadeMadonna (13-3). Mondays home loss was to Westminster (13-1). Friday, Pines Charter started an all-state left-handed pitcher with which the Dolphins had offensive problems. Marathon No. 1 starter Jordan Roney matched her most of the way, but the defense struggled behind her and committed eight errors.Savannah Rodamer, Ashlyn Katz, Amanda Bruland and Hannah Child had the Dolphins only four hits. Roney allowed eight hits while striking out six and walking two in a complete game.In the second game of the day, the Dolphins rested Roney and started seventhgrader Grace Kirwan against Riverdale. She performed well and kept the Dolphins within one run, 2-1, heading into the fifth inning.As they came around to their third at-bat, they started hitting pretty well. We ended up going to Hannah [Child], who they hit pretty well also, coach Sean McDonald said.Sacha Olivera hit a home run and Rodamer doubled for the teams only two hits against the Raiders. Roney started Saturday morning against ChaminadeMadonna and the Dolphins led 3-0 after three innings. Rachel Philcox was 2-for-3 with a triple, Katz had two base hits and Brandi Spalten, Rodamer and Bruland all singled during that stretch.But the wheels came off when Roney sprained her ankle and had to leave the game. The Lions offense came alive and tacked on 13 runs to pull away from the Dolphins.Defensive miscues cost the Dolphins again on Monday, as the girls committed nine errors against the Warriors. Roney started and allowed 11 hits while striking out nine and walking one. She also knocked in the teams lone run. This weekend, the Dolphins (4-6-1) are slated to take part in the annual Slam Fest tournament hosted by Gulliver Prep in Miami. Opponents and game times have yet to be decided.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOFTBALL
