WALK-OFF WIN AGAINST RIVALKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School senior Ashlyn Katz is mobbed by teammates on Wednesday after a game-winning walk-off base hit in the Dolphins dramatic 3-2 home softball victory over rival Key West. Story, 1B Report: The Keys drinking rate highBy some measures, Florida Keys residents emerge as the states healthiest people. Other statistics primarily rates of adult smoking and alcohol consumption drop Monroe County residents to the wrong end of the Florida health spectrum. Those are among findings in the 2014 County Health Rankings report, a nationwide project released March 26 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsins Population Health Institute. In some areas, Monroe County does well. In others, were pretty much in the middle of the pack, said Christopher Tittel, information officer for the Monroe County Health Department. In some areas, we have room to improve. The County Health Rankings report uses available information from state health departments to rank every U.S. county on 29 factors on a state-by-state basis. Monroe Countys obesity rate among adults is 19 percent the lowest percentage in Florida. None of Floridas other 66 counties had an obesity rate (based on body-mass index scores) lower than 20 percent. The state obesity average is 26 percent, with 19 counties reporting more than a third of their adult population qualifies as obese. In the Keys, virtually all residents have access to exercise opportunities, according to the report. A state-best 82 percent of Monroes population says it regularly takes part in some physical activity.However, Monroe County also ranks first statewide on a less-admirable scale, the 28 percent rate of excessive drinking.That is defined as binge drinking (four to five alcoholic drinks in a single setting at least once in a 30day period), or heavy drinking (one or two drinks nearly every day). No Florida county reported a higher percentage of excessive drinking; the statewide average is 16 percent. The Keys rate increased from 25 percent in 2013. In the Keys, 37 percent of vehicle-accident deaths are linked to alcohol. The state average is 29 percent. The percentage of adults who smoke tobacco in the Keys remained unchanged from last year at 22 percent of the population. With other Florida counties generally reporting lower rates of adult smokers, Monroes rank dropped nine spots to the No. 45 position into the bottom third statewide. The current Florida average is 18 percent of the population.Vices are easy to satisfy in the Keys, notes the Monroe County Community Health Almanac, published by the county Health Department last year. The Keys had 660 active alcohol licenses in 2013 about three times the number of licenses in found counties of similar population. The same is true of Monroe Countys 395 tobacco licenses.The County Health Rankings report, said a Woods Foundation summary, continues to show us that where we live matters to our health.... The leasthealthy counties have twice the death rates and twice as many children living in poverty and teen births as the nations healthiest counties.Monroe County ranksIslands also among worst for smokingOUR HEALTH The new report says that of all Floridas 67 counties, Monroes residents do the most binge drinking and most excessive drinking.See Health, 2AYankow leaving clinic he foundedTen years after starting the only clinic that provides free medical care to uninsured patients in the Upper Keys, Dr. Sandy Yankow is resigning as medical director of Taverniers Good Health Clinic.Yankow, 76, said he and his wife Nancy, an attorney, are leaving the Keys primarily because the house they have been renting is being foreclosed on. Its an economic thing for us, Yankow said. The couple just bought a house in Albuquerque, N.M. The food is cheaper, and the housing is cheaper, Yankow said.Yankow, who has more than 35 years experience as a gynecologist and obstetrician, said he is not sure whether he will renew his medical license when he moves to New Mexico. One of the main factors in that decision is whether the state has sovereign immunity for doctors offering free medical services.In other words, Florida acts as the malpractice insurer for free clinics like the Good Health Clinic. If a patient wants to sue, he or she must take it up with the state.For the most part, our patients dont sue, Yankow said. Theyre just grateful someone is helping them. The Good Health Clinic treats up to 600 patients a year, said Executive Director Jennifer Rickmann. With a budget of around $300,000 a year, Yankow estimates his office offers more than $8 million worth of medical treatment a year.Part of the annual budget pays Yankows $78-an-hour salary. He gets paid for 30 hours a week but estimates he puts in about 40 to 50 hours.I think theyre getting their moneys worth out of me, Yankow joked. The clinic also works withGood Health chief moving to New MexicoBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSCity pig law called hamfistedMarathon Mayor Dick Ramsay is aiming to repeal the citys law governing the keeping of pet pigs a little more than a year after the much-debated law was given final approval. In advance of Tuesdays regular City Council meeting, he penned a brief statement that basically says the law is unnecessary. It was stated in these ordinances that if you were to have a pet pig, you needed to obtain a license from the city to have such a pet, he said. Since the enactment of these ordinances, no one has come forward and asked for a license to have a pet pig within the city of Marathon. The ordinances to which Ramsay refers were the original version approved on Dec. 11, 2012, and an amended version approved on Feb. 12, 2013. The council agreed to tweak the law when Ramsay said hed received numerous complaints about it. Among the four amendments were a prohibition on breeding pigs in city limits, and requiring male pigs to be neutered by four weeks of age and female pigs spayed within four months.Then-Mayor Mike Cinque who owns a restaurant called the Stuffed Pig championed the law in an attempt to allow a pair of residents to keep their pigs after complaints were made to the city. But Ramsay says those residents no longer have pet pigs.Staff has indicated there appears to be no one within the city limits that in fact has a pet pig, he wrote. At the time the ordinance was created, only one individual was keeping pigs and breeding those pigs for resale. Since that time, the individual has removed those pigs out of Monroe CountyMayor calling for repeal, says its unneededBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSee Pigs, 3ASee Yankow 3A Photo by DAVID GOOODHUEDr. Sandy Yankow is waving goodbye to the Keys and the Good Health Clinic, which he founded.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com
second in Florida in the general quality of life assessment, which looks at the residents view of their own health, the rate of deaths below age 75, and underweight newborns.Only 10 percent of Keys residents describe their health as poor or fair, compared to a state average of 16 percent. Monroe County in 2013 was ranked first in Florida in the Physical Environment category, largely due to very low air pollution and uncontaminated drinking water. This year, the Johnson Foundation added a new Physical Environment ranking called severe housing problems, which assess housing costs compared to income and overcrowding.That likely caused Monroe County to drop to No. 6 in Physical Environ ment ranking, Tittel said. In Monroe County, 29 percent of the population was considered to have severe housing problems compared with the state average of 22 percent.The County Health Rankings are a starting point for change, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey said in a prepared statement, helping communities come together, identify priorities and create solutions. Tittel said, Compiling the data in this way gives public health officials at the local level something to think about when it comes time to develop campaigns targeting specific health factors and behaviors. Other information from the local county health rankings:Monroe County was No. 8 in Social and Economic Factors, owing to the states lowest unemployment rate, and below state-average rates of children in poverty (21 percent in the Keys) and violent crime.The rate of highschool graduation was 66 percent, below the Florida average of 70 percent.About 27 percent of Keys residents were believed to be uninsured; the state average is 25 percent.

Contact Dan 305-743-5967 ATTENTIONDuck Key property ownersIllegal-fish cases growing in scopeThe number of defendants linked to Operation Rock Bottom, a federal investigation into smuggling of live fish and coral illegally taken from protected Florida Keys waters, continues to rise. Two more cases against operators of saltwateraquarium businesses were added to the roster recently, federal court records say.A number of these cases are still progressing through the courts, said Jeff Radonski, a South Florida special agent with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations law-enforcement office.You never know what will come out until it gets to the very end, Radonski said Wednesday. But it has been a good case. Four men are in federal prison as a result of Operation Rock Bottom, which came to light in February 2013 when officials of the Idaho Aquarium, a private nonprofit facility in Boise, were arrested on federal charges. However, the investigation apparently began two years earlier when state and federal officers raided Key Marine Inc., a fish-collecting business on Grassy Key. Following the 2011 raid, law officers refused to say what was behind it. Court records in later cases indicate that through 2011 and 2012, officers used Key Marine and its operators to compile evidence on other businesses seeking to buy or ship live sharks, rays and other tropical fish illegally taken from Keys waters. In recent cases:Jerrold Tieder, 47, president of Tropical Fish Transhippers in Davie, was sentenced to two years of probation and fined $5,000 in January. Charged with the sale or purchase of illegally harvested wildlife, Tieder faced the possibility of five years in prison. He pleaded guilty to acquiring and selling nurse sharks from a Keys supplier who lacked the required shark permits. Four nurse sharks purchased by Tieder and sold out of state in November 2012 had earlier been fitted by lawmen with concealed identification devices. Tieders business was placed on probation for three years and fined $2,500. A portion of the fine will go toward the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Tieder reportedly made less than $500 on the shark sale.Jonathan Hale of Country Critters of Long lsland Inc., in Patchogue, N.Y., is scheduled for a June trial at the Key West federal courthouse on charges of buying and selling live rock and corals taken from the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Hale is accused of knowingly dealing with a Middle Keys company that in September 2012 supplied the mushroom coral and other species, which had been falsely labeled as overseas imports. Hale is free on $25,000 bond.Christopher Conk, 41, of Idaho was arrested Tuesday for violating his probation from an earlier case of dealing in illegal saltwater corals. He was being held in federal custody in South Florida at press time. Conk was sentenced in December to four months in prison followed by two years of probation, including six months house arrest. That sentence was imposed for his participation in the Idaho Aquarium case that involved the illegal purchase of eagle rays and lemon sharks, both protected species. Conk already was on federal probation in 2012 when he was arrested for driving under the influence, and later for making illegal purchases for the Idaho Aquarium. I went ahead with the purchase of the sharks despite knowing about the lack of permits, Conk in a December letter seeking a reduced sentence. I know this was wrong. I made a bad decision.... This has affected many people in Boise and I feel terrible.It was not clear whether Conk was arrested after serving his four-month sentence.Ammon Covino, Conks co-defendant in the Idaho Aquarium case, in December was sentenced to a year in prison. Covino is scheduled for release in late August, according to online federal inmate records. He will remain on probation for two years.Richard E. Perrin, 80, owner of the Tropicorium marine-life store in Michigan, was sentenced March 27 to three years of probation and fined $15,000 for catching, buying and shipping illegally taken nurse sharks, angelfish and other species from the Keys during a weeklong trip in 2011.Perrin and co-defendant Joseph Franko also pleaded guilty to catching several baby alligators from wild areas along U.S. 41. Franko is scheduled for sentencing April 14 in Key West.Most grew out of 2011 raid on Grassy KeyIN THE COURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Report: Uninsured numbers are highFrom Health, 1A Dick, Martin running againIncumbent Monroe County School Board members John Dick and Ron Martin have filed paperwork this week to run for re-election this year. Dick, the District 3 Middle Keys member, is serving his second four-year term. He filed paperwork with the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office on Wednesday and has yet to draw a challenger. The board still has got some unfinished work to do. Hopefully we can go back to funding increases and continue back to raising the salaries for employees, he said. Weve got to keep continuing to improve the education for the students and try to bring in the best [teachers] we can and pay them the best we can. Te School District and United Teachers of Monroe are stuck at an impasse in contract talks and the federal magistrate has stepped in to mediate. Board Chairman Ron Martin, a retired principal of Coral Shores High School in Tavernier, filed to run for his second term, also on Wednesday. He said resolving the issues with UTM is a priority. I want to get this thing settled and keep on track with that in the years to come. The teachers dont need it and the School District doesnt need it. Im hoping that well be able to work through this and carry forward, he said. Martin, representing District 5 in the Upper Keys, said hes pleased with the leadership of Superintendent Mark Porter. Im very satisfied with what hes doing right. Im a supporter of Mark. Retired teacher Dennis Caltagirone has also filed for the Upper Keys board seat. In District 1, Robin Smith-Martin will not seek re-election to the Key West seat. Stuart Kessler, an appointed member of the districts Audit and Finance Committee, and caterer Warren Leamard have filed paperwork to run in District 1. The primary election is set for Aug. 26 with the general election on Nov. 4. School Board races are nonpartisan, meaning the top vote getter can win in the primary. If there are three candidates, unless one gets more than 50 percent plus one vote in the primary, the top two vote getters go to a November runoff.Both file on Wednesday for re-electionBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comELECTION 2014 DICK MARTINAudit again slams collegeFor the second straight year, Florida Keys Community College has been cited by state auditors for inappropriately using college money to bolster the foundation in charge of the 100-bed Stock Island dormitory which has lost more than $1.5 million between opening in 2011 and September 2012.The Florida Auditor Generals Office report released Monday covers the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. The finance audit from the previous year containing a similar finding led the Southern Association for Colleges and Schools to place the college on accreditation warning based on lackluster internal finance controls related to the dorm. The ultimate penalty would be losing accreditation, which would sever student access to federal financial aid. It also wouldnt allow students to transfer credits to universities. As of June 30, the college has loaned the Florida Keys Campus Foundation, a direct-support organization created to incur construction financing debt for the dorm and to manage the dorm, $908,544. The foundation has repaid $115,190, according to the audit. We are unaware of any specific authority in Florida statutes permitting use of college funds to finance the activities of its college directsupport organization, auditors concluded.Its a high priority, college spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said of the need for the Campus Foundation to repay the college.She also noted that a team from accreditation organization is due on campus in two weeks for a monitoring visit on the warning status. The audit we received will certainly be something they consider when theyre here.College trustee Brian Schmitt explained whats called a forbearance agreement the colleges board approved on Monday at a meeting at Marathon High School.The deal is between the college and Lapis Advisors of San Francisco, which provided $8.2 million in bond financing for the dorm construction.Under the deal, Schmitt said the colleges interest rate would go from 7 percent to 5 percent for at least one and up to two years, and remove payments on the principal.At the end of that two-year term, the college should be paid back most, if not all, of the money owed to it by the housing support organization.Schmitt said occupancy projections on which the bond financing was based were just too optimistic.

Now board Chairman Bobby Stoky is in the process of drafting a letter to Gov. Rick Scott advising him of the change, which is allowed by state statute, college spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said. Before the vote, the board briefly discussed specific seats for board members, with three Lower Keys members, two Middle Keys members and two from the Upper Keys. However, the trustees did not define the geographic boundaries. They didnt discuss that, Ernst-Leonard said, adding that she doubts that boundaries will go into the final letter, which the board will have to approve. She said that over the years, appointments have been divided fairly evenly throughout the Florida Keys. Current trustees are Elena Spottswood and Tim Keonig of Key West, Brian Schmitt and Anne OBannon of Marathon, and Bobby Stoky of Key Largo.KEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEKeynoter Staff YOU HAVE IT.Somebody else wants it.Have something you no longer need?

The Key West City Commission is getting at least two more opinions on a consultants recommendation to immediately bring ambulance service in-house under the Fire Department. Harold Cohen of TriData Services on Tuesday recommended the in-house transition during a presentation on the logistics of that move. But commissioners also want to issue a request for proposals asking private companies what it would cost to provide the service. That could take a month. At the same time, the Key West firefighters union will put together an analysis with the help of the International Association of Fire Fighters, its parent organization. Whichever option is chosen, it would replace the forprofit Care/American Ambulance. Care/American replaced American Medical Response in Key West in 2011 at no cost to the city. Care/American expected to make money by directly billing people it transports.When American Medical Response had the city contract, the city paid it $650,000 a year, largely based on uncollectible ambulance rides for homeless people.The Care/American contract expired Tuesday, and the commission has already voted to pay the company $45,000 monthly for up to a year until a transition can take place. Tuesday, commissioners questioned City Attorney Shawn Smith about language in the Care/American contract that could have avoided the $45,000 monthly bill.Do we have any options regarding the lame-duck clause or are we bound by the month to month? Commissioner Clayton Lopez asked.Youre well past that, Smith said. That ship has sailed. There was a clause in your original contract that if the city went out to RFP and if [American/Care] was not the successful respondent, they had a provision. Yes, things couldve been done differently.Commissioner Mark Rossi was skeptical of the no-cost deal when it passed in 2011. In that case, Cohen prepared the RFP that led to the contract with Care/American.Here we go again, Rossi said to Cohen. Youre the same guy that told me yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, and I told you that night it wasnt going to happen. So now whatre you telling us ambulance services are going to cost the city? Cohen said the expected start-up cost for bringing ambulance service into the Fire Department would be around $650,000, which includes the purchase of ambulances, and operations costs would be about $1.5 million annually. With a 60 percent collection rate, the city would lose $364,169 each year in what he calls a worst-case scenario. The best-case scenario is an 80 percent collection rate, which would earn the city $14,696. I bet the collection rate will be 45 percent, Rossi said. Mayor Craig Cates broke in: Youre not the expert. Please treat [Cohen] with respect.

In the Keys, these include Lindsey Ekblom, a Tavernier physicians assistant; Key Largo nurse practitioner Jacqueline Gavin; psychotherapist Ruth Dailey Grainer, from Key Largo; Key Largo internal medicine Dr. Joanne Mahoney; Susana May, a Key Largo family medicine doctor; Charles Neiditz, an internal medicine doctor from Tavernier; and Alan Netzman, a Key Largo general surgeon. Also, Key Largo nurse practitioner Robin Neville; gastroenterologist Neal Rakov, from Tavernier; Tavernier dermatologist Leslie Safer; Robert Temkin, a family medicine doctor in Tavernier; Tavernier cardiologist Abraham Wolfenzon; and Stanley Zuba, a Tavernier pediatrician.Eye specialists in the Keys also donate their expertise to clinic patients. These include eye doctors James Gahagan and James Boilini in Key Largo, Lansaw Eye Care in Tavernier and Tropical Optical in Islamorada.The clinic depends on grants and donations so it can treat low-income, uninsured patients in the Upper Keys at no cost. The clinic, at mile marker 91.5 on the ocean side, last year received $150,000 from Baptist Health South Florida, the faith-based nonprofit hospital group that operates Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. Monroe County funded the clinic with $60,000. While this money is greatly appreciated, how much will be donated varies year to year. Yankow is not sure who the Good Health Clinic board of directors will choose as his replacement, but the clinic will go on.Hell yes, he said. I look at it as a paid employee doing a specific job and getting procedures done we cant do here. It is these relationships that have gotten us to where we are today.Rickmann said the board has identified several qualified physicians to run it. Yankow said he has enjoyed serving the medical needs of poorer people in the Keys, and said Monroe Countys community has been particularly helpful in helping the Good Health Clinic do its job. We have loved living here in a community, which looks after and cares for its members less fortunate and in need, Yankow said in a statement.Yankow: Clinic has bright futureFrom Yankow, 1A and no longer apparently intends to have pet pigs, Ramsay added. Ramsay said hes moving to remove the controversial ordinance because it hasnt proven necessary.I have been asked by many residents who feel the city is no place to have farm animals, which include pet pigs, to rescind these ordinances, he said. It is my belief that when an ordinance is passed that does not properly serve the needs of the people that the ordinance needs tobe rescinded, he wrote. Vice Mayor Chris Bull, who opposed the pig ordinance last year, said hes in favor of rescinding it.Especially for the fact that no one has applied for a license since enacting it, he said.So what if someone gets a pig after the law is repealed and a neighbor complains?We have an ordinance in place that says you cant have farm animals in the city, Ramsay said. The pig law is an exception that law, he said. Tuesdays council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center, mile marker 48.5 bayside. Itll be broadcast on Monroe County Channel 76 on Comcast Cable.Repeal likely for pig lawFrom Pigs, 1ACouncil interviews lawyersMarathon City Council members spent Friday meeting with potential replacements for longtime City Attorney John Herin.They did so in advance of a scheduled Tuesday discussion about bringing in an in-house attorney as opposed to continuing to contract out legal services, as the city has done since its inception in 1999.The council voted, 3-1, at its March 11 meeting to replace Herin with another lawyer from his GrayRobinson firm, while staff researches the pros and cons of hiring an inhouse attorney.The GrayRobinson candidates are Anastasia Protopapadakis, Lynn Dannheisser and Code Compliance Board attorney J. Michael Marshall. Marshall was called away on an emergency Friday and will interview another day.Protopapadakis is a senior GrayRobinson associate who practices in the areas of commercial litigation, civil rights, local government law, employment law and general tort litigation/personal injury defense. Dannheiser has more than 35 years experience and has been the city attorney for Sunny Isles Beach, South Miami, Surfside and Pinecrest.Marshall is a land-use attorney and planning consultant with a background in law, engineering and business administration.Mayor Dick Ramsay spent time with Protopapadakis and Dannheisser Friday morning.This is just an interim process to looking at the future and it may or may not include the possibility of an in-house or contract attorney. That issue is going to be investigated by staff. This meeting will have a brief update, but not one that is extensive enough, he said. The citys legal budget for this year is $395,000. City Community Services Coordinator Debbie London contacted various South Florida municipalities in Monroe County and on the mainland about their legal setups. Her report lists 13 governments, including:Key West: Four in-house attorneys and one paralegal totaling $479,593 per year.Palmetto Bay: Contracts with an outside firm for $473,000 per year.Wilton Manors: Contract with an outside firm for $224,340 per year.Vice Mayor Chris Bull also interviewed both attorneys on Friday afternoon. He said there are pros and cons to both approaches when it comes to in-house or outside counsel.Well just have to decide as a council which approach to do, and do it right, Bull said.The move to replace Herin came two weeks after Herin told the council Feb. 25 that his firm would refund $3,000 the city paid in salary to former City Manager Roger Hernstadt after he accepted the same position with Marco Island.Theyre possible replacements for departing HerinBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONZahn is 1st female mayor in city historyNearly 50 years after it incorporated in 1957, Key Colony Beach has its first female mayor and city administrator.Geraldine Zahn has been filling that role on an interim basis since Jan. 1, but fellow City Commission members made it official at Tues days annual organizational meeting.Former Mayor Ron Sutton recommended Zahn and she was chosen unanimously without other nominations. She said response has been amazingly positive. Im very pleased for the opportunity to serve the city, she said. I have a taste of what to expect and feel I can do a good job thats needed. With the help of a wonderful staff, I feel we will accomplish what needs to be done for the city. Zahn won election to a fifth consecutive two-year term on the commission last month, along with political newcomer Ed Wovas. She was the top vote getter with 239 votes. Sutton stepped down as mayor mid-term to deal with family health concerns and said Zahn has filled in admirably. I must say shes done well. We all learn things every day.

Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALIts time to end gay-marriage banLETTERS TO THE EDITORGroups help each otherAs chairwoman of Heron Peacock Supported Living, it is my pleasure to inform our community and all qualityof-life advocates that management of the Peacock Apartments in Key West was officially assumed by the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition on April 1. The Heron Peacock board has struggled for years to make the organization financially viable and made a proactive decision in November to approach Rev. Steve Braddock and the Outreach Coalition to help us discern options that would ensure that the 32 mentally ill residents being housed and supported by Heron Peacock at the Peacock Apartments would have a secure future. Closing the program was not an option for our vulnerable residents, who could have run the risk of becoming homeless, hospitalized or even incarcerated. The board felt strongly that it was in the best interest of the Peacock residents that the program, fixed assets and facility leases be transferred to the Outreach Coalition, an organization similar to ours and with a proven track record for organizational excellence. Fortunately, Rev. Braddock recognized our needs and that time was of the essence due to our precarious financial situation. He and his team moved swiftly to assess the physical condition of the buildings and have already secured private funding to remedy significant structural deficiencies caused by years of deferred maintenance due to lack of funds. Soon the noticeable improvements of the buildings and grounds will be seen. It is my sincere hope that the community will respond with vigorous support for the heroic effort the Outreach Coalition is putting forth by assuming responsibility for the Peacock Apartments in Key West. Meanwhile, Heron Peacock continues to operate the 16-bed licensed assisted-living facility in Marathon known as the Heron and fundraising will continue until such time as its services are assumed by another entity. Plans are in the works by the Guidance Care Center in the Middle Keys to acquire the Heron license in July. Sherry Read Key WestOn same-sex marriageOur Wednesday story about Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, who sued Monroe County Clerk Amy Heavilin on Tuesday after the clerks office denied them a marriage license (the state Constitution bars same-sex marriage), drew lots of responses. Following are some of the comments posted to our website, www.Keys InfoNet.com :Very proud of my boys.Very proud of you Aaron and William! The two of you are paving the way. One Human Family.Very proud of my son Tom Hampton being a part of this lawsuit. God blessed me with a gay son who believes in what is right.Thank you for standing up. In years to come when this is ancient history, young gay men and women will look up to you as we all did for those at Stonewall and the bathhouse raids. If we dont stand our ground, nothing will change. We all remember Rosa Parks. If she wouldnt have refused to sit in the back of the bus, would we have a black president today?Very proud of you two.Someone has to take a step up to the plate, so thank you guys for doing so. I used to live in Key West and what a wonderful place for this to initiate.The government should not be telling people who they are allowed to love and choose as spouses. America talks big about freedom and independence but why, in our country, are people not free to choose who they love and want to spend their lives with? Best wishes to Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones.Good luck guys. We are praying for you. Everyone should have the right to marry.Leviticus 18:22, New King James Version: You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Leaving aside that the Bible is not the rule of civil law in the United States (the U.S. Constitution is), we do many things in our society that the Bible does not support. For example, we have a prison system, but the Bible does not recognize its utility. Nowhere in the Old Testament or New Testament are their use endorsed or advocated.The Florida Keys have long been ahead of the pack in the push for equal rights for people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. This past week, a gay Key West couple put the islands back in the spotlight in that fight.In 2008, the GOP-controlled state Legislature pushed a state constitutional amendment it passed with nearly 62 percent of the vote prohibiting same-sex couples from marrying and, therefore, barring them of all rights accorded those who are married to the opposite sex.Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones a couple for 11 years knew this when they applied for a marriage license Tuesday at the County Clerks Office in Key West, and knew they would be rejected. Their Tavernier-based lawyer, Bernadette Restivo, also knew this, and immediately sued County Clerk Amy Heavilin to get the amendment overturned, saying the U.S. Constitution calls for equal protection of all citizens and trumps all other law. Seven other couples six from Miami-Dade County and one from Tallahassee have also sued to get the amendment overturned. This is not the first time the Keys have been out front in fighting inequality when it comes to gay rights.In late 2008, Key West attorney Wayne Larue Smith and his longtime partner, Daniel Skahen, found out that, after a years-long legal battle, they could legally adopt the young boy they fostered for seven years. That stemmed from a ruling by Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin saying the adoption could go forward because Floridas 1977 law barring adoptions by gay people arose from unveiled expressions of bigotry.The state never challenged Audlins ruling, and the adoption ban was lifted for good in 2011 stemming from a case in Miami-Dade County. The Keys have always been a place for tolerance.Monroe County has a law on the books barring discrimination not only based on race, religion and other factors, but also based on sexual orientation. It means gay people cant be denied accommodations, credit and other services merely because of their sexual preference.The county government also has a policy allowing same-sex couples who have a county employee in the relationship to receive health insurance and other benefits just like all county employees receive. Key West has a domestic-partner registration program, but for the most part its just a piece of paper, not legal protection, you receive after registering. Its main goal is for same-sex couples to have an official document recognizing their relationship when they go for bank loans and the like.We believe Florida its politicians and many residents wont enter the 21st Century anytime soon when it comes to giving gay couples the same rights as hetero couples, but we also believe that ultimately, change will come.If its going to happen, it has to happen in Key West, Huntsman said. Change happens in Monroe County, and nobodys ever tried this here yet. Photo by KENNE J. TUCKERAaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones show a flier prominently displayed at the County Clerks Office explaining why licenses for same-sex marriages cant be issued.Firefighters DUI case adds fuel to lawsuitMonroe Countys firerescue chief says there are no similarities between two cases in which firefighters were met with opposite degrees of discipline over traffic violations. The situation is likely to factor into a racial discrimination lawsuit filed against the county in federal court last year. In one case, a Hispanic firefighter, Mario Romera, 35, lost his job in June 2012 because his license was suspended for six months for not paying Sunpass toll fees. The other, an Anglo firefighter, was let back on the job a little more than 10 days after he was arrested on Jan. 29 for driving under the influence of alcohol in Miami-Dade County. That firefighter, Cameron Cowart, 27, is waiting on a court date in the case. He ended an interview short Thursday to speak with his union representative. Craig A. Brand, Romeros attorney, said the discrepancy in punishment fits into a pattern in which non-Hispanic firefighters face no serious punishment after being caught breaking the law, while several Hispanic firefighters have been fired in the past four years for minor procedural violations. Anybody Latin gets creamed, while Anglo firefighters are forgiven, Brand said. Monroe County FireRescue Chief James Callahan said the cases differ because Romera never told the department his license was suspended. In [Cowarts] case, the county was notified of his arrest immediately, he said in an e-mail. Cameron Cowart immediately complied with restrictions imposed by the countys safety officer during the brief period of time that he was operating under a temporary drivers license by taking vacation time, and he had his license reinstated prior to any lapse of the temporary license and before the predetermination hearing.Second offenseAlso, Callahan said Romera has had his license suspended before. When his license was suspended the first time, he notified the county and we worked with him and allowed him to take vacation leave until the license was reinstated. He was well aware of the process and the seriousness of losing his license, Callahan said. It was the second license suspension when he did not comply with policy, in addition to many other problems and policy violations, when he drove emergency response vehicles with a suspended license for six months without notifying the county. It is not clear if Cowart informed the department of his arrest. In a Jan. 30 memo, Safety Officer Mark A. Congre wrote Battalion Chief Gary Boswell: Information was received this morning from Monroe County Human Resources that Mr. Cowart was arrested last evening in MiamiDade County and charged with DUI. Romera said he did not know his Sunpass transponder, which electronically pays tolls, did not work. The notices, he said, went to the home of his ex-girlfriend, whom he said did not notify him about the bills. Romera filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the county last May in U.S. District Court saying he endured more than three years of racially motivated harassment that culminated with him eventually losing his job. A trial is scheduled for this summer in front of Judge Jose Martinez in Key West. Cowart, 27, was arrested on a DUI charge in MiamiDade County on Jan. 29. He refused to submit to breath, blood or urine tests. He went before what is known as a predetermination hearing presided over by Boswell on Feb. 13. Between his arrest and the hearing, Cowart was suspended. He was allowed to report back to work on Feb. 11, after his drivers license was reinstated on Feb. 7. It is not clear what Cowart had to do to get his license back. Boswell concluded in his Feb. 13 hearing report that I do not believe [that] event that led to your arrest or the arrest itself will interfere with your ability for perform your duties as required, so long as you do not lose your license in the future as a result of a conviction. Based upon my findings, it is my recommendation that the county not take any disciplinary action against you at this time, Boswell wrote. Callahan added that Cowart may face additional punishment if he loses his license if he is convicted in the DUI case. In this case, Cameron Cowarts DUI case is still ongoing and once concluded, another pre-disciplinary hearing may be needed, Callahan said.Romera alleges discrimination by the countyBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comEMERGENCY SERVICESWe believe Florida wont enter the 21st Century anytime soon when it comes to giving gay couples the same rights as hetero couples.
Marathon resident Jeff Shapiro has an old-school business idea for the Old Town section of Marathon. Hes planning a combination newspaper/magazine stand and Starbucks-style coffee bar called Keys News & Coffee at the former Daffy Dougs Dollar Store near mile marker 48.5 bayside. Its a little retro and a little forward thinking, as well. Boutique coffee shops are a hot topic out west right now, Shapiro said. Im working with a custom roaster in Miami and theyre doing some custom blends for me.Shapiro said the idea is ideal for that part of Marathon.At the Old Town end of the island, there would be a great need for a coffee bar. The location that Ive got is a wonderful one. Its directly in front of the [Marathon Government Center] and its close to the hospital, he said. Shapiro said the business would take up about 1,500 square feet, or one-third of the main dollar-store building. Daffy Dougs had bait and tackle and deli operations in adjacent spaces.Keys News & Coffee would carry about to 600 different magazine titles, as well as national and regional newspapers, bestselling books, arts and crafts, and gift items.Shapiro said the buildings owner is planning to subdivide the space into thirds and is working with the city to do so. That could take time, but Shapiro said hes willing to wait. At this point, Im not sure when Im going to be able to get the place open. The last I heard was it would be available for build-out by June, he said.Shapiro is a former San Diego resident who moved to the Midwest and ended up working as a store manager for Circle K in Indianapolis. He moved to the Keys in October.The company offered me a larger store to manage and I thought Im ready to do it on my own. I did a lot of research on the type of business and I decided to look at demographics. The more research I did, the more it brought me to the Keys, he said. Shapiro originally thought about opening a bookstore, which he said he discovered have historically not done well in the Keys. The plan morphed into a magazine and newspaper stand and he eventually added coffee to the mix.In addition, Shapiro said he plans to offer a light food menu consisting mainly of pastries, cupcakes and the like. None of it would be prepared on site, he said. Im not applying for a restaurant license; that opens up a whole can of worms I dont want to get into, he said. Ive got a lot of people that are waiting to come through the doors if I can get the doors open. The last true Florida Keys newsstand was Valladeres and Sons at 1200 Duval St. in Key West. It closed several years ago.

THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS Staff at the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center in Marathon held a recent thank-you party for its volunteers, and they look enthusiastic. Dozens of volunteers contribute hundreds of hours at the 63-acre hardwood hammock throughout the year as trolley drivers, docents, fundraiser participants, school field-trip assistants and maintenance help. Conduct rules go before boardThe Marathon City Council is scheduled to meet in regular session at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon Government Center. Agenda items include:A resolution establishing rules of conduct for appointed members of city advisory boards and committees.Councilman Mark Sen martin floated the idea of a morality rule that initially received a tepid response. But the council largely agreed with scaledback language included in the resolution. It states that if appointees are arrested for a felony, they must report it to the city and have the city clerk put it on the agenda of the next City Council meeting to discuss the potential suspension of the board, committee or commission member pending a final disposition of the members arrest. The resolution would also require advisory board members to be registered voters in Marathon.A review of recommended changes finalized by the citys Charter Review Committee last month. The council created the board in January to help with suggestions on how to best tweak the 15-year-old document overseeing all aspects of city government.Many changes were minor, but the five-member panel spent a great deal of time discussing council elections and the length of council terms, as well as council member interference with city staff, which is not allowed.The committee unanimously recommended moving elections back to March and reinstituting individual seats rather than at-large voting, as was the case until 2007.To solve the problem of how to punish council members that violate the charter by interfering with city staff, the committee adopted language drafted by City Attorney John Herin clearly defining interference and malfeasance, which is what the charter says interfering with staff is. The language offers corresponding state statutes by which malfeasance could be prosecuted. Voters must approve changes to the charter except when it comes to changing the date of elections. That decision is up to the council.An update from interim City Manager Mike Puto on a $727,000 state Com munity Development Block Grant the city secured on behalf of the nonprofit Crane Point Hammock. Aimed at funding a large portion of an estimated $1.1 million zip-line course, the council has said it plans to back away from the grant due to Crane Points lack of progress.The state Department of Economic Opportunity admin isters the CDBG program and raised concern with the city in a Feb. 24 letter. It gave the city a 30-day deadline (March 26) to submit a justification for the delay.DEO requested information asking why there are delays in submitting the environmental assessment and the wage decision request. A wage decision is essentially the state dictating what general contractors must pay subcontractors in federally or state-funded projects.Jeff Smith, president of Crane Points board, wrote a one-page letter to the city on March 11. He attributes delays to third-party ... actions regarding the [height variance] issued by the citys planning director, George Garrett.A group of opponents to the zip line, many Crane Point subdivision residents, have fought the project every step of the way, including suing over the height variance, which was granted for several towers more than 40 feet high. The citys building height limit is 37 feet.Possible changes to city charter also consideredBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSign clutter likely stayingMonroe County fought the signs and the signs may have won. A four-year effort by the county to remove sign clutter along U.S. 1 through the Florida Keys may be on the verge of collapse.Proposals to undertake whats called a Wayfinding Sign Program to improve the view from the designated scenic highway have twice been far more expensive than the $970,000 in available grants, says an agenda summary to the County Commission for the boards April 16 meeting in Key West.The most recent cost estimate came in $1.74 million last November. Now county staff recommends the project be put on indefinite hold because the state Department of Transportation indicated additional funding could be years away.Reducing the scope of the project is not an option as the original project was to consolidate existing signage into a uniform signage system, says the summary by Judy Clarke, a county engineer.The goal stated in 2010 plans called for replacing 200 informational signs installed by state and local governments to direct travelers to recognized business areas and public amenities.Rather than the current system of signs colored green, blue or brown, a reduced number of 160 signs would use a uniform salmon-and-blue template, partially framed by a cutout of conch shell.A design plan approved in 2012 has become outdated with ongoing highway roadwork, Clarke said. Signs have continued to proliferate along the highway, she wrote. In other items at the Key West meeting at the Harvey Government Center, commissioners are scheduled to:Consider a request to rename a Florida Bay area off Upper Matecumbe Key as Two George Flat to honor former President George H.W. Bush and his Islamorada fishing guide, George Hommell Jr. The area now is called Little Basin and Little Basin Flat.Formally dedicate the new county fire station at 5655 MacDonald Ave., Stock Island.Hear a presentation on design options for the revamped Bernstein Park on Stock Island.No money for consolidation of road markersCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comMan dies while divingA New Mexico man died diving off Islamorada Thurs day, according to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Stephen Benavidez, 55, of Albuquerque was in the Keys visiting with his wife. He was on a three-day dive trip aboard the Giant Stride with Key Dives out of Bud n Marys Marina, Deputy Becky Herrin said. He started on Wednesday with two dives and completed his third dive of the trip Thursday morning with no trouble. He was on the fourth dive of the trip when he suddenly surfaced, yelling for help, Herrin said. The captain threw out a tow line, but Benavidez couldnt get it so two dive guides from the boat were sent out to get him. By the time they reached him, he wasnt breathing. They performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation as they brought Benavidez to the dock at the marina, and the boat was met by paramedics, who took him to Mariners Hospital, where he was pronounced dead just after noon. An autopsy is planned to determine cause of death.It was the second dive or snorkel death since March 19 in the Keys.

Column, 3BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment PREP SOFTBALLKatz drives in the winning runLast-inning heroics saved the Marathon High School softball team from likely its most frustrating loss in recent memory on Wednesday.Down 2-0 to rival Key West High, the Dolphins scored three runs in their final at-bat, capped by an Ashlyn Katz walk-off base hit to earn the dramatic 3-2 home victory. It wasnt pretty to start, as Marathon committed numerous errors and squandered several scoring opportunities. It appeared a dominant pitching performance by starter Jordan Roney would be nullified. Roney allowed just two hits while striking out 11 Conchs and walking three. Both runs she allowed were unearned. It was frustrating because we left the bases loaded in two innings and another inning had runners on second and third and couldnt convert. But I knew it was a matter of time before we scored some runs, and we did in the bottom of the seventh, Marathon coach Sean McDonald said. The Conchs threatened in their first at-bat, loading the bases on a bloop single by Angela Niles, an error and a Jayla Di Gennaro walk.

Island Christian defeated the Lady Canes, 16-6, behind the experienced fastpitch arm of Eagle hurler Amanda Ihrig. Coral Shores, rebuilding after not playing the 2013 season, lost its top two pitching prospects early this spring. With position players drafted to take the mound, the Canes have struggled to find a hurler who consistently throws strikes.The Lady Eagles (8-4) needed just two hits, by Shelby Walker and Amanda Scott, to score eight runs in the first inning. Three walks, three errors and a hit batter accounted for the other ICS runners.Our girls were very disciplined at the plate, said ICS head coach Kaitlynn Loy. We got a lot of runs because of it.

See Eagles, 2BSee Softball, 2B Dolphins thump the RaidersA five-run extra-inning rally helped the Marathon High School baseball team pull away for a valuable South Florida Baseball Conference win Tuesday over Ransom Everglades in Miami.The 9-4 victory pushed the Dolphins to a 7-1 conference record (9-9 overall), tied with Keys rival Coral Shores High School for first place in the six-team league. Starter Kyle Pierce was dominant on the mound, allowing just two hits and striking out 11 batters in a complete game. He walked two batters and hit another. If the Dolphins took care of business against a struggling Miami Country Day team on Friday (results were not available at press time), it would set up a Wednesday home game against the Hurricanes for the conference regular-season title. Its an important game because the seeding is important for the tournament. Whoever gets first seed has to open against Country Day, as opposed to opening against Palmer Trinity School, Dolphins coach Luis Leal said.Tuesday, the Dolphins jumped ahead in the top of the first inning when Max Elliott scored from first base on a Raymond Crespo double to make it 1-0.

But Key West pitcher Desirae Laguna struck out Katz looking to end the first. Key West took the lead in the top of the third inning when Brooke Wood reached base on an overthrown ball to first base. She took second base on the play, moved to third on a Mackenzie Cohen base hit and scored on an infield grounder to make it 1-0.The Dolphins loaded the bases again in the third inning and had runners at second and third in the fourth, but could not capitalize.Key West took a 2-0 lead in the top of the fifth inning, again due largely to defensive miscues on Marathons part. Wood drew a walk to open the inning, stole second base and advanced to third on a ground-ball out. Marathon could have ended the inning after a line drive to shortstop Savannah Rodamer, as Wood was well off third base and able to be forced out. But Rodamers underhand toss was bobbled and Wood made it back to the bag. She eventually scored on a misplayed twoout ground ball that would have ended the inning. The next couple of innings were quiet until the Dolphins came to bat in the bottom of the seventh.The thing Ive been preaching all year is keep your composure and put whatever mistakes behind you. They really stayed within themselves, McDonald said.Rodamer started the rally with a hard hit ball to center field, sliding safely in at second base with a double. She scored on a misplayed grounder that also allowed Brandi Spalten to reach first base. The Conchs couldnt make a play on a Roney ground ball that put runners on first and second. Spalten eventually scored on an Olivera base hit up the middle to tie the game at 2-2 and set the stage for Katz. After first attempting to bunt, Katz ripped a single to right center field that scored Roney and ended the game.

I was pleased with the advancements we made, said Bill Butler, who coaches the team with John Moeller. There was a small but satisfactory improvement.

The win boosted the Canes to 4-1 in the district, giving Coral Shores the No. 2 seeding in the April 15 district tournament behind Miamis Palmetto High. It also was the Canes second straight win, leveling their overall record at 4-4 after a tough start to the 2014 campaign. The guys have worked hard, stayed positive, believe in themselves and trust the system, Rich said. The Hurricanes were down, 8-4, in the second half against Coral Reef before mounting a 6-1 run. The Canes tied it at 9-9 with two minutes left, then scored the game-winner just after the face-off. Eddie Dunn scored three goals for the Canes, with Bryce Lanford and Cameron Lankford each scoring two. Danny Whisted dished out an impressive five assists, and scored once. Solo goals by Brian Cash and Spencer Calvert also were needed. Ben Colmes played well in the goal with strong defense from Tanj Zuniga, Darren Govan and Brian Gonzalez, said the coach.

Before you know it, every item of clothing you own is now strewn across your bed and floor.It seems the more important the event, the more stressful getting dressed can be. Most of us do not have the time to expertly style our outfits each day. This makes getting ready somewhat of a hassle when crunched for time. For those days, when nothing seems quite right, you need to turn to your go-to outfit. A go-to outfit is a look you feel great in. They are the clothing pieces about which you are frequently complimented and that you are guaranteed to look wonderful in.The hardest part for most women is identifying which outfit this is. When perusing your closet, look for a piece of clothing that you love wearing and makes you feel like you. This is exactly the look that needs to become your new go-to outfit.If, after looking through your closet, you have yet to identify your go-to outfit, try looking through photos of yourself. Facebook is a great resource. Most of the photos youve uploaded to your page or marked as a profile picture are likely photos in which you liked what you were wearing. Scroll through your photos and look for those clothing pieces that make you look and feel your best.Another option: Think about the last time you received compliments on your clothes. This is now your go-to outfit. Still lost? Call your bestie and ask her which outfit she loves on you. Shell be honest about your most fabulous look. Next, you need to organize your closet. You should lay out your go-to outfits in an easy-to-reach location with as many accessories layered on them as possible. If your go-to outfit should be worn with a jacket, hang it together. This is to make it easier to remember how it should be worn. Beyond picking out your go-to outfit, an organized closet will help you get dressed each day. Organize your clothing by type. Hang each type of clothing together so when you need a sweater or jacket for a cooler day or air-conditioned interiors, you know where to look.If youre feeling like you always wear the same black dress for every occasion, swap out the accessories. Instead of wearing plain gold or silver jewelry, opt for a statement necklace with color and coordinate your shoes. The black dress can continue to be your go-to outfit but by swapping out your jewelry, shoes and handbag youll create a different look each time.Including at least one dress into your go-to outfits. Dresses are great for the Florida Keys, as theyll keep you cool, theyre versatile for both work and play, and can be worn year-round. Wearing a dress with heels and a blazer instantly pulls together your look for work, while wearing the same dress with sandals and jewelry is perfect for brunch with your girlfriends.Most women say, Ive been shopping all my life and I still have nothing to wear! With your go-to outfit already in mind, you will never have to say this again. Leah Maki is a fashionobsessed style blogger.
