He raised $50,000 through pledges for equipment and education to combat liver disease.END OF THE LINE FDLE: Crime rate in Keys goes downThe Florida Keys did their part to cut the statewide crime rate to what the Florida Department of Law Enforcement calls a historic low. The number of serious crimes covered by the annual Uniform Crime Report was down nearly across the board in 2013 from 2012 in Monroe County and Key West, resulting in an annual overall county decline in the crime rate of 10 percent. The FDLE bases its Uniform Crime report on statistics submitted from police agencies in the state.The FDLE released statewide figures Wednesday that show Floridas crime rate, based on crimes per 100,000 people, stood at the lowest rate in 43 years.In Key West, violent crime dropped by more than 14 percent, and nonviolent crimes dipped 4.5 percent. Key West saw no murders in 2013 after seeing one in 2012.In the rest of the county, crime overall decreased by 13.8 percent, attributed to a drop in burglaries and thefts.In Key West, the number of robberies went down 27 percent, from 51 to 37; and aggravated assaults dropped almost 10 percent, 135 to 122.Were always glad to see the numbers come down, Key West Police Chief Donie Lee said. We are dedicated to doing all we can to see crime rates continue to drop.Key West had 21 reported forcible rapes in 2013, one more than a year earlier. Key Wests rate of thefts and burglaries would have been lower without a jump in stolen smart phones. The rash of phone thefts ended after a Miami couple was arrested in October, says a Key West summary. The one crime category where numbers increased in both Key West and Monroe County was the theft of autos. Key West, where stolen scooters are a common report, had 101 vehicle thefts in 2013 after 95 the year before. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office, which also patrols the cities of Marathon, Islamorada and Layton, reported 50 vehicle thefts, up by two from 2012. The countys rate of aggravated assaults went upCRIME FRONTAuto theft up in county, Key West; forcible rapes also up, murders downGlades work could be delayedAn unexpected delay in federal approval of a major piece of Everglades restoration stunned South Florida advocates Tuesday. A review panel within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decided to hold off on a decision to move forward with the Central Everglades Planning Project, a series of projects all aimed at improving water flow toward Everglades National Park and Florida Bay. We are losing habitat and seeing the ecosystem degrade every day, said Julie Hill-Gabriel, director of Everglades Policy for Florida Audubon.The Central Everglades project seeks to rehydrate the system all the way to the southern end of the state and Florida Bay, Hill-Gabriel said. We have to do these things as quickly as possible.The $1.9 billion Central Everglades plan would fall under reauthorization of the federal Water Resources Reform and Development Act, which Congress typically takes up once every seven years. The last passage was in 2007 and a new vote is expected this summer. This potential delay could push these projects back another seven years, said Caroline McLaughlin, Biscayne Bay restoration analyst for the National Parks Conservation Association. That kind of delay would mean more suffering in the ecosystem, estuaries and surrounding communities.Everglades Foundation Chief Executive Eric Eikenberg said, Once again, the Corps is bogged down in its own bureaucracy, stumbling past important deadlines, showing an unwillingness to be creative, and determined to follow a trail of red tape that leads to public frustration.The Corps Civil Works Review Board cited technical differences in plans approved by the South Florida Water Management District, the states lead agency on Everglades restoration, and federal plans.The one thing that cannot be rushed on the final report for this complex project is ensuring that it meets the Corps required quality standard, Col. Alan Dodd, the Corps Jacksonville district commander, said in a prepared statement. The review board has agreed to meet again in Washington, D.C., within a few weeks but no date was available at press time.

Story, 4AAudlin stepping down from benchMonroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin announced Friday he is stepping down from the bench May 9 with four years left on his second six-year term. He gave no reason for the sudden move other than to write in an April 25 open letter to friends and colleagues that he will return to the private practice of law and civil mediations. Audlin was elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2012. Hes presided over several high-profile cases in his eight years on the bench, from the Balfour Beatty housing-tax case involving U.S. Navy property in Key West to the first murder trial of Nicholas Ferro, subsequently convicted of murder in the 2009 slaying of Marquese Butler in Key West. A panel of local governorappointed attorneys called the Judicial Nominating Commission for the 16th Judicial Circuit, which is the Keys, will take nominations for Audlins replacement, then send its recommendations to the governors office for final appointment.Once the vacancy is announced, the judicial nominating committee gets together and puts out a call for applicants, said Courts Admin istrator Holly Elomina.

However, his accounting firm, Bishop Rosasco & Co., remains in charge of city finances. Rosascos deputy finance director since 2008, Jennifer Johnson, has taken his place. But the City Council still voted unanimously to look at bringing the finance department in-house. Councilman Mark Sen martin sponsored the discussion and advocated strongly to do away with Bishop Rosascos contract. The company has contracted with Marathon since 2003 and is being paid $384,063 in fiscal year 2013-14. For about $200,000 per year, we can hire a full-time [certified public accountant] and a junior accountant, including benefits, that are available in-house 40 hours a week, he said. Senmartin said that savings alone is a great reason to consider an in-house finance chief. But he also raised concerns with Rosasco as a developer.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSee Rosasco, 2ACost, conflict cited as reasons; firm still stays

The Marathon City Council on Tuesday narrowly shot down Discount Rock & Sand owner Eddie Lopezs plan for a construction and demolition debris transfer station and recycling center on Aviation Boulevard.But the council left the door wide open for the business to eventually open, provided a glaring discrepancy in two sections of the city code are cleared up.The vote was 3-2 in favor of a Stirrup Key Homeowners Association appeal to overturn the Planning Commissions Dec. 16 ruling to allow the transfer station. Vice Mayor Chris bull and Councilman Rich Keating dissented.The Planning Commission vote was also 3-2 and went against Planning Director George Garretts recommendation to deny Lopez permits for a stormwater system related to the project.There were presentations on Tuesday from the association, Lopezs attorneys and his land-use consultant Sandra Walters, as well as input from numerous residents, but the argument on Tuesday centered on interpretation of the code.As she did before the Planning Commission, Walters pointed to a table (103.15.1) in the city code that says recycling facilities are allowed in industrial zoned areas. The site is zoned industrial and Lopez operates his current business there.Six years we have been laboring through this process for a use provided for in your code. You have every opportunity to uphold your own code and support your own planning commission, she said. Garretts interpretation is different and he made that clear to the council. He maintains that Lopez proposes a construction and demolition debris transfer station, which is prohibited by a different section of the code (104.27). Garretts answer was simple when Mayor Dick Ramsay asked, Is this operation allowed under our code? No, he said. The council continued to debate back and forth which section of the code applies, but ultimately voted in favor of the association and denied the permit. However, the council appeared to be unanimous in favor of reconsidering the project as long as Garrett is able to rectify the language discrepancy in the code. Garrett said Friday hes already begun the process. I have already about half drafted it, he said. I believe the advertised dates are May 19 [at the Planning Commission] and May 27 for the council.Bottom line is its a change to actually create an allowed use of [construction and demolition debris] transfer facilities, Garrett added. It would apply throughout the city. Any industrial area could do it with a conditional-use permit.I understand Mr. Rosasco has offered to step down as the principal and offer someone else in that role, he said. Having him do this would only increase the controversy and look like were trying to cover something up.Our ultimate goal should be self-reliance and the control that would give us, Senmartin said. Rosasco said Senmartins belief about the cost savings is off-base.I would like to correct Mr. Senmartin. Youre never going to run the city of Marathon with two people. If you want to do that analysis do it, but do it realistically, he said.Rosasco said government finance is more complicated than businesses using Senmartins Cash Flow Jewelry & Pawn Shop as an example. Theres a lot more to running a government thats a $100 million enterprise than there is in running a pawn shop or other small business, he said. Public funds have various laws that require checks and balances that are way beyond what youre going to encounter running a small business. As for his development interests there have been several since the 1980s Rosasco was unapologetic. He said there is no legal conflict of interest associated with the Bishop Rosasco contract and his private business interests.Rosasco attorney Stuart Michelsen had sought an opinion about that from the state Commission on Ethics. On April 9, the commission wrote that since Rosasco is not considered among public officers or public employees, the answer was no.Nevertheless, effective immediately my deputy finance director will assume the role of finance director for the firm, he said. Rosasco has a significant investment, along with developer Marvin Rappaport and other investors, in the country club project. Their plan is for a 60to 65-room hotel with 13 vacation cottages and revamped amenities at the Sombrero Boulevard club. Interim City Manager Mike Puto told the council a report on an in-house finance chief could be ready by the May 13 council meeting.

Weve already started to see benefits from things like the first phase of the C-111 project, said Frezza, also a part-time Florida Bay fishing guide. Weve spent a lot of time and effort showing how the lack of freshwater flow affects the bay.Projects in the Central Everglades system include water storage areas and pumps that would simulate the natural sheet flow of water.Hill-Gabriel said, It looks like the Corps is trying to cross its Ts and dot the Is.... The frustration comes from the fact that every single person in the process has worked hard to push things ahead so we can get to this point.Glades work may be delayedFrom Everglades, 1Agroup of attorneys is vetted by the JNC. Once they narrow down the list, it is sent to the governors office. The governor makes the final decision.The attorneys on the Keys Judicial Nominating Com mis sion are Monroe County Attorney Bob Shillinger (chairman), Nathalia Abon dano, Anthony Barrows, Lynn Hankins-Fielder, David Paul Horan, Pipe Smith, Timothy Thomes and Donald Yates. Ed Scales had been a member but had to step down when Gov. Rick Scott named him to the Third District Court of Appeal last year.Had Audlin stepped down before May 2, an election might have been held to fill out his remaining four years because thats the ballot qualifying date for judicial candidates, Elections Super visor Joyce Griffin said. The Keys have four Circuit Court judges and four County Court judges. Two of the circuit judges, Tegan Slaton and Mark Jones, are up for re-election this year.Audlin is a Syracuse, N.Y., native who graduated from the University of Southern California Law School in 1981. He was admitted to the California bar in 1981 and practiced commercial law in Los Angeles through 1984, the year he was admitted to The Florida Bar.He became an assistant public defender in Key West, then went on to become a statewide prosecutor based in Tallahassee. He returned to Key West in 1996 and opened a law firm, practicing civil law. He also was a Monroe County Circuit Court mediator and special magistrate through 2006, when he was elected unopposed to his first term.Judge leaving the bench earlyFrom Audlin, 1A 17 percent, from 154 in 2012 to 180 in 2013. Reported forcible rapes edged upward, from 12 to 15, and robberies were stable. The Sheriffs Office investigated two murders in 2013, one fewer than 2012. Property-theft crimes in the county dropped 17 percent to 1,144 in 2013, and burglaries declined 12 percent to 302.Key Colony Beach reported a crime-rate drop of 21.4 percent in 2013. Although in the Middle Keys city with a population of 802, that means there were 11 burglaries or thefts reported, down from 14 in 2012. Two people were arrested by Key Colony Beach police, both for driving under the influence.Countywide, 385 people were charged with driving under the influence, a 14.2 percent drop from 2012. The FDLEs annual Uniform Crime Report show the overall crime rate dropped 4.7 percent, from a total of 725,987 incidents in 2012 to 698,607 last year. Countywide crime is downFrom Crime, 1A Two candidates filed this week to run against incumbent members of the Monroe County School Board.In the Upper Keys District 5, board Chairman Ron Martin is running for a second four-year term against Dennis Caltagirone and, now, Richard Bradley of Key Largo. Martin beat Bradley and two others in 2010. Bradley, a nurse originally from Great Britain with a son in grade school, couldnt be reached for comment Friday.But he said in a prepared statement that since his last candidacy, I look around at the continuing decay and slide, I see a worsening economy, health care on edge and, yes, even schools here in Monroe still with falling and failing standards. As a proud parent I have to stand up and try to make a difference. In the Middle Keys District 4, Catherine Bosworth has filed to run against two-term incumbent John Dick. Bosworth moved to Tavernier in 2012 after retiring from a career teaching for the Broward County School District. She works as an adjunct publicspeaking professor at Florida Keys Community College. Ive been an educator all my life, she said, noting her two children are also teachers. The job pays $29,000 per year plus benefits. Since the School Board race is nonpartisan, if a candidate gets more than 51 percent of the vote in the Aug. 26 primary, he or she wins. If not, the top two vote-getters move on to the Nov. 4 general election.Bradley running in District 5, Bosworth in 4By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comELECTION 2014Two more file for School Board BOSWORTH BRADLEYNeugent gets second challengerA Little Torch Key woman concerned about the costs of the Lower Keys sewer system is running for Monroe County Commission. Eleanor McAdams, an insurance agent, filed Wed nesday week to run as a Democrat in the District 2 race. She is single with a son in high school.In my job, people come to me with problems and I help fix them, said McAdams, 58. I want to help the county fix its problems.Coming from New Yorks Long Island, McAdams has owned her Little Torch Key home for 22 years.Incumbent Commissioner George Neugent, in his fourth term, and challenger Danny Coll, both Republicans, also seek the four-year term.A primary issue for McAdams is the Cudjoe Regional Wastewater System, part of the unincorporated countys treatment system. Its slated to cost around $158 million and take in the area from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key, about 7,000 parcels. Work on it is under way. I dont think the sewer fiasco has been handled well, McAdams said. Weve got the biggest district, the longest sitting commissioner and the biggest problems. Too many Lower Keys property owners are being asked to install sewage grinder pumps rather than be able to connect to a gravity-based system, she said. Many people dont think the grinder pumps are going to work, McAdams said. We cant sit on our backside and wait to see what happens. Its too costly to homeowners.Weve been dealing with the sewer issue for 20 years, she said. If we had done something 20 years ago, we wouldnt be in this position.Candidates have until June 20 to formally qualify.Little Torchs McAdams files in District 2ELECTION 2014 McADAMSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comCouncil says no transfer stationMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com CALLCLASSIFIEDS743-5551

Prosecutors investigating former Key West police school resource officer Henry Arroyo, already accused of two felonies for allegedly molesting a girl younger than age 16, on Wednesday filed a new charge against him. Arroyo, 41, is out on bond after turning himself at the Monroe County Detention Center on March 24. Last month, assistant Monroe County state attorneys Colleen Dunne and Val Winter charged Arroyo with two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior for the alleged molestation. Wednesday, a third count was filed, this one alleging lewd exhibition. That crime is defined by statute as involving a sexual act that does not involve actual physical or sexual contact with the victim. The molestation charges are punishable by life in prison. The one filed Wednesday is punishable by 15 years. Arroyo is due in court May 21. The alleged victim is now 14, and the alleged abuse started when she was 10, according to an arrest affidavit. The reported victim said Arroyo would enter her bed at night and force her to touch his [genitals], according to the affidavit. She also told investigators Arroyo would touch her breasts and attempted to touch her genitals, according to the document. Arroyo earned $49,036 annually as a Key West police officer. He was hired in 1999 and resigned in April 2011. During that time, Arroyo moved to Tampa with the victim, her sibling and her mother, according to the arrest form. He was rehired by the Key West Police Department in December that same year after moving back to the Keys. Before his March arrest, Arroyo was placed on administrative leave on Dec. 12 and resigned Feb. 2.Yaniz says comment misunderstoodAfter a shaky appearance at the Hometown Political Action Committees annual call for candidates Monday, Key West City Commis sioner Tony Yaniz said he is still considering a run against Mayor Craig Cates this fall.Cates and Yaniz have been political rivals for years and Yaniz, while not officially announcing anything or filing paperwork, has made clear his interest in the top job.He wrote to the Keynoter If and when the people I represent want me to run for mayor, I will announce then. Yaniz is involved in youth athletic organizations and has been a strong advocate for building assisted and independent living units for senior citizens.At Mondays event at the Salute Restaurant, Yaniz seemed to announce he would not run against Cates, then said thats not what he said. That was after Cates and perennial candidate Sloan Bashinsky, both declared candidates, took the stage. Cates, a three-term incumbent, said because hes retired, I devote all my time to the city.He pointed to $40 million in pending capital projects, including development of the Truman Waterfront into a park and new city hall, and all the money is in the bank. Bashinsky spoke about a long-term lack of funding for the Truman Waterfront and closed with, Anyone that runs for public office, especially for mayor, is insane because of the hell you catch once you get the job. Youve got to be crazy to do it. At that point, moderator Todd German told Bashinsky, who says he is guided by angels, If you have to be crazy to be mayor, youre eminently qualified. Is there anybody that might want to speak? (German and Bashinsky are friends.) Then Yaniz, in a joke that caused more confusion than laughter, said, After giving some serious consideration to what Sloan Bashinsky has said about being insane to run for mayor, Ive decided Im not running. That prompted some catcalling, including a lady yelling out, If hes not running, why is he talking? After clarifying that his insane comment was a joke on Bashinskys closing statement, Yaniz said he is thinking of running. When I announce, it will not be for the medias whim but for mine, he said. German told the Keynoter that in 10 years of hosting political forums, Weve never had anything like that happen. Cates was first elected in 2009 and Yaniz in 2011. The primary election is Aug. 26 followed by the general on Nov. 4. Key West City Commission races are nonpartisan.He is still considering mayoral runBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comFCAT problem minimal in MonroeCompared to other school systems in Florida, the Monroe County School District experienced only minor problems in the web-based administration of the Florida Comprehen sive Assessment Test on Tuesday. Christina McPherson, the districts director of performance and accountability, said 20 seventh-graders at Marathon Middle/High School had a slight delay in submitting complete tests covering reading. Otherwise, she said the district has had a peaceful FCAT administration. In comparison to other districts, we had a good week.Of the 67 school districts in the state, Florida Depart ment of Education Com munications Director Joe Follick said 26 reported technical difficulties. Monroe is not included on that list, he said.Some students in those 26 counties couldnt log in. Others, after finishing the test, received error messages when submitting them. Following the problem, State Education Commis sioner Pam Stewart sent a letter to Walter Sherwood, president of state services for contract testing vendor Pearson, calling the glitches inexcusable and adding the state would pursue liquidated damages. She didnt say what that means. In a statement posted to the company website, Pearson chalked up the issue to Internet traffic disruptions caused by third-party hosting service Savvis.McPherson said the students affected locally were taking the reading FCAT. The test is used to determine student course placement, teacher performance and school grades, among other things.Other districts see widespread online issuesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Saturday, April 26, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com An upscale atmosphere with a local island vibeDinner Monday through Saturday 6:00 to 10:00 pm PLAZAGRILLSteak & Seafood5101 Overseas Highway Mile Marker 50 Marathon, FL KeysFor Reservaons, Call 305.743.7874Char-Grilled Signature Steaks Fresh Local Seafood Classic Pasta Speciales Creave Daily Specials Dazzling Desserts Inmate Marni and Wine BarVisit us online to view our wine list, menu and more at PlazaGrillFLKeys.comMarathon, FL Keys PLAZAGRILLSteak & SeafoodMarathon, FL KeysExpires May 31, 2014Coupon can not be combined with any other oer Local I.D. required20% OFF 20% OFFRegular Menu For Locals Information: Bernice Dionne at 393-2517 Marcia Panse at 393-3733 Rebecca Dunlap at 393-4026 Tom Sheahan at 393-3709 Entry Forms Available on website: www.nicksheahan.com $25,000 Cash Prizefor Angler who breaks the Dolphin State Record2 0 1 4 F r i M a y 2 S u n M a y 4 Cash Prizes for Adults, EntryFee $150 for Adults Trophy and prizes forjunior anglers, Entry fee $35 The Nick Sheahan Scholarship Fund For Graduating Seniors at Coral Shores High School RULES MEETING & COOKOUTFriday, May 2nd 6-9pm, Tavernier Creek MarinaPaella Party at 6pm, Free to Anglers Non-Anglers Welcome $25, Live Music, Cash, Gas and Other Prizes, Silent Auction.

Actor Lloyd Bridges takes in Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas in 1970. Perhaps his apparent love of the water stemmed from his starring role as a former U.S. Navy diver in Sea Hunt from 1958 to 1961. The TV show was a comeback vehicle for Bridges after he was blacklisted from Hollywood after admitting to the House Un-American Activities Committee that he was a member of the Actors Lab, a group tied to the Communist party. Some underwater scenes in Sea Hunt were filmed in Florida.Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALLawmakers still dont get child issueLETTERS TO THE EDITORTeens need more to doTo all visiting people, Marathon has many activities for their family to enjoy such as fishing, kite surfing, parasailing and the beautiful beaches. To visiting families, this would be a perfect place to live because it is very family oriented. What many of these parents do not see is that many of those activities are very costly. Not to mention doing one thing so many times will cause it to become less enjoyable. As a teenager who has lived in Marathon for her whole life, I disagree with the statement that Marathon is a family-oriented area. There are always complaints that the local teenagers are disrespectful and all we do is cause trouble. What many people do not realize is that we are constantly looking for something to do and we sometimes end up wandering into places we should not be, or doing things we are not supposed to do. Just like any other teenagers, if we do not have something to keep us entertained, then we will begin to get curious and search for ways to entertain ourselves. The teenagers of Marathon, including myself, believe that if there were activities to do in our town, fewer and fewer teenagers will cause trouble. If parents, the City Council and local law enforcement want fewer teenagers in trouble, they would help support this notion. Many teenagers want somewhere where we can just hang out, talk, eat, watch TV, play video games and dance. All these activities can be done under roof. So the problem of costing too much should not be an issue. So the next time the city welcomes another Walgreens, seafood restaurant or gas station, the City Council should think of Marathons teenagers. Lets make Marathon the most family-oriented key. This is one way we could make this happen for local families and visiting families. Zamaira Ricart MarathonPlanning board erredThe Monroe County Planning Commission completely sold out the Stillwright Point residents when it voted to approve an affordable-housing development against the wishes of every homeowner present.Code Enforcement has long overlooked (or completely looked the other way) on all the code violations that were going on at 2 N. Blackwater Lane and their illegal landfill. A permit was applied for but denied. Still, Code Enforcement allowed the landfill to happen.Only when the sale of this property to a major developer (Gore and Co.) did they even start to try to enforce these code violations ($94,000) before they would approve the vote. I know the neighborhood is upset and against this, Commissioner Jeb Hale said. I almost feel like [Paradise Point] would be an improvement compared to whats there now.... It meets the criteria and fills a tremendous need. Commissioner Denise Werling said that with the sites commercial zoning, the 47-apartment project could have a lesser impact than some alternatives that arise down the road. These statements by Hale and Werling are an insult to all the homeowners involved. If Hale thinks this is an improvement, why wouldnt he allow this in his neighborhood? Worlings statement seems threatening as to say take this and be happy or things will get worse. I certainly hope that all the Stillright Point Homeowners Association remembers the Planning Commission (Wiatt, Hale, Werling) and those that appointed these special-interest politicians, and vote in a clean government that goes back to supporting the people that vote them into office, instead of catering to large corporations. Andy Newton Key LargoValue school librariesThis month we celebrate School Library Month as declared by the American Association of School Librarians.School library programs provide students with lessons in literature appreciation, information literacy and technology. These opportunities help enhance and extend classroom learning and provide students with essential skills that will help them throughout their academic career.The Stanley Switlik Elementary School library has been very fortunate to enjoy financial support from several local businesses and organizations. A $2,000 donation from the Dolphin Research Center helped update the marine science collection and purchase many more titles for our new eBook (electronic) library. The Trophia Butterfly Foundation provides the program with an annual donation of $100 to purchase green living books. The Marathon Runners Club and Zonta Club of Marathon provided a total of $1,100 to purchase books to continue the Reading is Fundamental free book distribution program, which enables each child to select a free book for keeps. These funds also purchased additional books for the schoolwide Accelerated Reader incentive program, allowing students to select a free book for every 10 points they earn. The Zonta club has also sponsored the pizza for our family reading nights. The Marathon Publix has donated cupcakes each month to recognize students for every 25 AR points they earn and the Marathon Yacht Club provides students who earn at least 100 AR points by May with a recognition luncheon. Most recently, the Switlik library media program was awarded the Monroe County School District Innovative Technology grant, which will fund the purchase of 30 iPads and 30 Kindle readers. Stanley Switlik students love their school library and thanks to our generous benefactors, we can continue to provide them with access to the newest titles and technological innovation. Happy School Library Month. Christine Paul Library specialist Switlik School MarathonDealing with the abusive adults just as needed as removing kidsGov. Rick Scott and state lawmakers seem intent and content to do just enough so that they can crow that theyve helped protect Floridas vulnerable children. But a closer look at their actions makes clear that they learned nothing from the Heralds harrowing series Innocents Lost. Either that, or they really, really dont care. Because otherwise, they would spare no effort to build upon the good that Scotts proposal to spend $39 million for more child protective investigators will bring. They would understand that removing children from abusive environments is just the beginning. They would be falling over themselves to provide the kinds of services to make family reunification real and lasting. But in this, the year of $1.3 billion in new revenue, lawmakers are straining at the leash to fund an aquarium, a medical simulator, a military museum and an observation tower for downtown Miami. Services for dysfunctional families? Total blind spot. Its incomprehensible. Look, theres nothing wrong with bringing home the bacon. Its what lawmakers do and what their constituents expect reaping their piece of a revenue windfall to help improve the quality of their lives and their communities. But if lawmakers still cant agree that substanceabuse, mental-health, domestic-violence and angermanagement services are absolutely crucial to saving childrens lives and giving tremendously troubled adults a chance to live productive lives and raise healthy families then they are willfully ignoring what it really takes to make a difference. Sen. Joe Negron calls it bailing out abusers, something he refuses to do. But thats a glib and narrowminded approach. Its every bit as ineffective as denying rehabilitative and job-training services to prison inmates because it would be coddling them. Neither group is very sympathetic, and each must pay a debt to society for their crimes. But eventually, no matter their unsavory behavior, they are going to be walking among civilized society again. In the case of those who have neglected or abused their children, they, indeed, may be brought back into some unlucky childs orbit. Shouldnt that happen only if they are drug free, in control of their tempers, or in treatment for mental-health challenges? Senate President Don Gaetz, at the very least, gets that all this will take money. He has articulated that understanding for weeks now. But he hasnt put the power of his position behind his words. He hasnt been a leader here, he hasnt walked the walk and neither has the governor. They need to be as appalled and outraged that, over six years, 477 children died while in the state Department of Children and Familys care as are residents in the communities where they were abused and neglected to death. Miami Herald Two crashes injure severalA crash around 9 a.m. Wednesday shut down U.S. 1 in Tavernier in both directions. Traffic was diverted to a side road before the highway reopened. The crash around mile marker 90 happened when a Dade-Monroe Express bus, which runs from Florida City to Marathon throughout the day, was heading northbound and a Chevrolet sport utility vehicle pulled out from a side street by the Woods Corner subdivision. The Chevy T-boned the bus on the bus drivers side.Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kathleen McKinney says 21 passengers were in the bus and seven, plus driver Cario Michelin, were taken to a hospital with injuries. Three people were in the Chevy Tahoe and two, driver Thomas Scott and passenger Lisa Scott, both from Delaware, were airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. As of Wednesday afternoon, they were in serious but stable condition, the FHP reported. A 12-year-old who was in the back seat was not injured.Michelin is being hailed as a hero among passengers because he had to battle to keep the bus under control and from striking oncoming traffic.He did well, hes an excellent driver, said a passenger who said her name is Norma. Im just happy to be alive and no one is dead. It was a scary situation.VW flipsA 21 year-old Miami Beach man was hospitalized early Thursday morning after flipping his Volkswagen in the southbound lane of U.S. 1 approaching mile marker 98. Nikita Shklyaev was initially taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier following the 2:28 a.m. crash, then was moved to Kendall Regional Medical Center, where he was in stable condition, McKinney said. She said Shklyaev was driving the 2009 VW south when, for reasons unknown, he left the road, traveling onto the grassy shoulder. The car then rotated counterclockwise and its right side struck a stop sign, two other trafficcontrol signs and a wooden telephone pole, knocking it down. The vehicle rolled over, ending up on its roof and, while doing so, took out a second telephone pole. That pole came down, and cables and wires attached ended up blocking southbound U.S. 1. The driver was wearing his seatbelt, McKinney said. Bus T-boned, Miami Beach man flips carON U.S. 1Charter school expandingWith a unanimous vote of the Monroe County School Board Tuesday, the marineoriented Ocean Studies Charter School in Tavernier can expand to offer fourth and fifth grades. The change will go into effect with the 2014-15 school year, beginning in August. The public charter school now serves students from kindergarten through third grade. According to its charter, the school can have a maximum of 116 students and now has 97 students. Principal Jennifer Flores said Ocean Studies is very excited to be a small grammar school. Now that we have fourth and fifth grade, were starting to plan on how we want to expand as in the placement of the children, she said. The 97 students are supported by 10 teachers yielding a student-to-teacher ratio of 12 to 1, Flores said. With the expansion, We dont have to add more teachers but we may choose to depending on the program we develop and the ratios we want to keep.Ocean Studies at mile marker 92 oceanside opened in August 2011, with an emphasis on the Keys environmental landscape and independent learning associated with Maria Montessoris teaching techniques.School District Super intendent Mark Porter noted two primarily technical conditions to the expansion: Revision of the schools charter by Aug. 2 and board approval of the revised charter by Aug. 12.In the run-up to the start of the school year on Aug. 18, Ocean Studies is holding a lottery for prospective students on April 30. Applica tions are available online at www.oceanstudiescharter school.com. Preference is given to siblings of enrolled students and children of school staff.Last year, Ocean Studies received a $350,000 grant from the Florida Department of Education. The money has been used to purchase textbooks, furniture, digital microscopes and tandem kayaks, among other things.Charter schools are public schools funded by the state, with the local school district acting as a funding conduit and keeping 5 percent of annual per student allocations. Charter schools are unlike traditional public schools in that they are not bound by rigorous bureaucratic reporting, curriculum and student progression policies.Board approves 4th, 5th gradesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Keynoter Staff

Some student-loan borrowers who had a parent or grandparent co-sign the note are finding they must immediately pay the loan in full if the relative dies.The U.S. Consumer Finan cial Protection Bureau says lenders have clauses in their contract that explain this could happen, but many borrowers are not aware of them.The agencys ombudsman, Rohit Chopra, said complaints are growing more common because the practice is catching so many consumers by surprise. While its unclear how prevalent it is, Chopra said it appears to be the practice among many private student-loan lenders. It has affected borrowers not just when the co-signer has died, but when the co-signer has declared bankruptcy.We do have some concerns that with an aging population and with very long terms on certain private student loans, that this could actually increase over time, Chopra said.The issue doesnt affect federal student loans, which are more commonly issued than private student loans.In the private loan industry, 90 percent of loans were cosigned in 2011, and having a co-signer can often lead to a lower interest rate, a report released Tuesday by the bureau said. Before the financial meltdown of 2009, private loans were more commonly issued, but many borrowers still owe money on them. They generally have higher interest rates than federal loans.

It looks like Marathon could have at least one resident pig before the City Council finalizes the repeal of a controversial 2013 law that legalized keeping them as pets. Tuesday, the council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance reversing the law championed by former Mayor Mike Cinque, but not before Planning Director George Garrett said one person filed an application and would be grandfathered in on the current law. Its an individual who lives behind the airport. All aspects of the ordinance as it currently exists will be adhered to, Garrett said. The law essentially exempted pigs from existing city law that prevents livestock from being kept as domestic animals.Mayor Dick Ramsay proposed repealing the law because no one had applied to keep a pig as a pet and as far as anyone can tell, there are no domesticated pigs other than the one owned by the late applicant in the city.In other business Tuesday:The council unanimously supported Council man Rich Keatings idea to have longtime users of the unofficial dog park behind City Hall between 98th and 99th streets address their concerns with the citys advisory Parks and Recreation committee. Many residents complained during the April 8 council meeting about proposed plans to create a fenced-in dog park as part of ongoing improvements at Oceanfront Park. They want dogs to continue to run free. Theres been a lot of work done on Oceanfront Park and theres a lot of people that have used that park over the years and are feeling disenfranchised that theyre not able to give input, Keating said.Dog-park user Warren Bernard invited the council, for the third time, to walk the area so you can have an idea what is going on and not going on. The city already has a dedicated dog park, at U.S. 1 and 75th Street.We commend you on the improvements made there, he said. There just arent other people using the park. What we do for the community is police the park and clean it up. At the April 8 meeting, several 98th Street and 99th Street residents told the council theyre concerned about dogs running free and several said theyve found dogs on their properties.In addition, almost every resident that spoke voiced concern with the proliferation of the homeless at Oceanfront Park since the city installed benches and pavilions as part of its improvements.

So the board is poised to impose employment terms on the union next month.Through more than a year of talks on a deal for the 2013-14 school year, both sides have emphasized the need to give teachers pay raises. Theyve been held up by disagreement over language in the contract that would allow the board to impose unpaid furlough days if district finances dictate it. The two major issues are the unpaid furlough days and how to divide the $1.25 million in raises for teachers and school-related personnel like bus drivers that were authorized by the state Legislature. While a negotiated agreement would have avoided further delay in getting much deserved salary increases to all employees, Porter said, we are no worse off than we were before the session and will now proceed toward an impasse hearing. In the past, UTM has challenged the board through filings of unfair labor practice with the state Public Employees Relation Commission and appealed decisions to the First District Court of Appeal. If done again, both those actions would have the effect of delaying a board decision.We arent going to do anything that would delay the legislative impasse hearing, Hummell-Gorman said. We truly want to complete this process and put this behind us.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSCouncil gives Puto another lookInterim Marathon City Manager Mike Puto could end up with a longer tenure than many city managers hired for the long term.The City Council heaped praise on Puto at its Tuesday meeting, and Mayor Dick Ramsay said he intends, at the May 13 council session, to recommend keeping him around through election season.Im going to lead the conversation that we give Mike a contract through at least November, Ramsay said.Puto was appointed to replace former Manager Roger Hernstadt on Jan. 22 after Hernstadt accepted the same position with the city of Marco Island. Putos contract is open-ended and pays him $10,000 monthly. The council has been in no hurry since appointing Puto to hire a long-term manager. Under a vote by the council, which it could reverse at any time, Puto cannot apply for the job after his interim role is complete.Even Vice Mayor Chris Bull, who said hes not a fan of kicking the can down the road, said he wouldnt object to extending Putos contract.Theres no doubt that Mikes counterpoint to our previous manager has been well served by the city. Staff as a whole is a good cohesive team, Bull said. We can decide whether we want to continue straight away or wait until January when there is a new council and assign somebody at that point. Councilman Mark Sen martin echoed that sentiment.Im comfortable with the work Mr. Puto has been doing. We start getting into taking applications and its a couplemonth process and it puts us in the middle of budget season. Were probably better off pushing this to the end of the year before we start getting into a search, he said.Councilman Rich Keating, an outspoken proponent of hiring a professional manager during the previous manager search, said he would like to move forward as soon as possible.I think Mike has done a wonderful job, he said. We need to continue to move forward on this and not drag it ion. Well benefit from getting those ads out and starting to evaluate potential city managers.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPig law going, but one pig is stayingOne resident asks for permit to keep swineBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON THE TOP IS NO MORE Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe popular sunset viewing spot The Top bar on the roof of the La Concha at 430 Duval St. in Key West closed April 20 for conversion into a day spa following approval by the Key West City Commission last year.

And then, in the bottom of the 11th inning, it did.At 10:18 Thursday night, three hours and 48 minutes after the first pitch, Hugo Valdes lined a single to right field to score Wells and give the Conchs a 4-3 victory over Gulliver Prep in the District 16-4A tournament title game at Ransom Everglades in Miami. The radio call of the winning hit by WKWFs Rick Lopez a clash of hysterically shouted syllables was indecipherable but listeners familiar with the style of the longtime broadcaster knew something good had happened.With a home game in the state playoffs at stake, the teams battled through seven tense scoreless innings after a two-run home run by Gullivers Brent Diaz had tied the score at 3-3 in the third.In the first inning, the Conchs took up where they had left off the day before in a 12-0 victory over Ransom in the semifinals, which featured a five-inning no-hitter by Brandon Presley. A Wells double was followed by singles from Valdes, Presley and Chris Varela and the Conchs, who were the home team, had a quick 3-0 lead. It was still 3-0 as Velez took the mound for the top of the third, already having recorded six strikeouts.

The Warriors are a perennial state title contender and, as of last week, the No. 3 team on the Miami Heralds South Florida Top 10 list with a 17-4-1 record. Dolphins Coach Luis Leal said his defense, behind No. 1 starter Kyle Pierce, committed several errors that allowed the game to get out of hand early. That makes it tough to come back, he said. We always battled; the kids never gave up even when we were down by 10. The Dolphins lone run came in the fourth inning, when Carlos OFarrill tripled with two outs and scored on a Raymond Crespo single. Pierce followed Crespo with another base hit, but those were the Dolphins only three hits. Marathon struggled with Westminsters lefty starter, whose pitches topped out around 90 mph. The Dolphins (11-14) had a solid season in South Florida Baseball Conference play (separate from the district), finishing 8-2 in the sixteam league.We had a lot of ups and downs.

The Conchs, the District 16-4A runner-up, made 10 errors and lost, 12-3, to 154A champion St. Brendan in a regional quarterfinal game Wednesday at St. Brendans field in Miami. Very disappointing, said first-year coach Ashley James, whose team, composed mostly of freshmen and sophomores, finished 8-17. The Conchs were down by only 4-3 going into the fifth inning, but then fell apart. Most of the errors were at the end, James said. In her final game, senior pitcher Desirae Laguna allowed eight hits, struck out three and walked three before being relieved by freshman Kendell Snow. Freshman Jayla DiGennaro and sophomore Anjelika Green each had two hits for the Conchs. Freshman Angela Niles, sophomore Brooke Wood, Laguna, senior Brooke Marsden and junior Tamiya Major all had singles, with Wood and Laguna each driving in a run. It was a learning season, said James, a former Conch player who took over for Steve Wells, who was 54-62 in five seasons.

Yes!Unusual as that combination may sound, it works surprisingly well to create a delicious, creamy truffle with hints of herby flavor. Think about it this way we dont hesitate to pair chocolate and mint.Basil isnt all that far off in flavor, lending a pepperiness that acts as the perfect foil to the richness of the chocolate. And the tea which pairs so well with sweets lends a depth of flavor that ties everything together.We like these truffles coated in lightly salted and chopped marcona almonds, but chocolate wafer cookies, pistachios or straight up cocoa powder all would be delicious, too. What you need:Two cups heavy cream.Half a cup packed fresh basil leaves.Two bags Earl Grey tea.Pinch of salt.One pound bittersweet chocolate, chopped.Crushed cookies, toasted chopped nuts, shredded coconut or cocoa powder, for rolling Start to finish: Two hours, 45 minutes (30 minutes active). Makes 54 truffles.In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to a bare simmer. Remove the pan from the heat, add the tea bags and basil leaves, then cover the pan and set aside to steep for 15 minutes.Pour the cream mixture through a mesh strainer and discard the solids. Return the cream to the pan and bring back to a simmer. Remove the pan from the heat and add the salt and chocolate. Let sit for five minutes, then stir gently until the chocolate is completely melted and combined. Cover the pan and refrigerate until completely chilled and set up, about two hours, or overnight.When ready to form the truffles, place the topping or toppings of your choice in bowls.

May 4, a black-tie Bogart Ball is to be staged with an elegant dinner, dancing, special guests and a presentation of the Maltese Falcon festival award.

The vessel is docked at the Holiday Inn Key Largo, mile marker 100. It just feels right to honor my father and his movies in this beautiful place, which has such an organic connection to his legacy, Stephen Bogart said. Its a perfect way to bring his name back into the public again and keep it there in a positive way, and for people to come down [to Key Largo] and have fun.

Among Dr. Johns most famous performances was Such a Night with The Band in the classic rock documentary The Last Waltz.Heaven is more than a sermonHeaven is for Real, rated PG, 100 minutes, playing in Tavernier and Key West. In Heaven is for Real, Colton Burpo, the angelic 4-year-old son of a Nebraska pastor, undergoes emergency surgery and while under anesthesia experiences a series of visions, including watching his own operation, observing the prayers of his anguished parents and meeting Jesus. At first, Todd Burpo (Greg Kinnear) listens to Coltons stories with the amused forbearance of a mildly skeptical but proud parent: He and his wife Sonja (Kelly Reilly) chalk up Coltons detailed visions to the stories and hymns hes been steeped in all his life. But when Colton mentions encountering people he never met or even knew existed, Todd becomes convinced that his son really has glimpsed the afterlife, a revelation that sends the preacher on a journey that will ultimately threaten his parish and his family. Viewers expecting Heaven is for Real, adapted from Todd Burpos best-selling memoir, to be an anodyne allegory of reassurance and unconditional faith are in for something a little bit edgier, and that turns out to be a good thing. Thanks to a sensitive performance from Kinnear, as well as from a terrific cast of supporting actors, what could have been merely a feel-good exercise in Eschatology Lite instead becomes a wholesome but also surprisingly toughminded portrait of a man wrestling with his faith. Gentle, well-meaning and suffused with the easygoing tolerance that largely characterizes the small Midwestern community where the Burpos live, Heaven is for Real undoubtedly supports Coltons contention that he visited heaven where, he tells his father in the movie, Jesus rides a multicolored horse and bands of singing angels apparently dont take requests (at least for We Will Rock You). But the movie doesnt succumb entirely to credulity. Most of the film has to do with the painful questions Todd, his wife and his parishioners grapple with as they contemplate the implications of Coltons startling disclosures, first trying to fit them into scriptural understanding and then, when that fails, their own personal theology or something in between. Why cant it just be a mystery? Todds wife asks at one point, echoing the very thoughts of audience members who may not accept Coltons words as literally true but dont reflexively dismiss them, either. (Theres no question, however, that Heaven is for Real is a Christian movie: One of its producers is megachurch leader T.D. Jakes.) As a sympathetic, morally centered voice of reason, Sonja Burpo joins Jennifer Connellys character in Noah as the wife of a man increasingly consumed by holy visions, only to lose track of what he cares about most. Todd Burpo is introduced as a nice guy, a modest garage-door installer whose conversational sermons appeal to his small, middle-of-the-road evangelical congregation. When he appears to be more interested in preaching the Gospel of the Son of Todd than the Son of God, parishioners begin to recoil. In one testily effective church meeting, a woman played by the magnificent Margo Martindale confronts Todd with the germane observation that the concepts of heaven and hell have been used for centuries to frighten and manipulate people. (Martindale is also at the center of one of the films most wrenching and pivotal scenes.) This push-and-pull represents the best of Heaven is for Real, which also has some humorous moments, many coming from Thomas Haden Church as the town banker who can always be relied on for a deadpan remark or two. With no less a steadfast atheist than Barbara Ehrenreich recently publishing a memoir of her own youthful encounter with the Great Unfathomable, and neurosurgeon Eben Alexander declaring in Newsweek magazine that he, too, took a cosmic journey to the beyond, Heaven is for Real is well timed to coincide with collective speculation on transcendence in its varied, most inexplicable forms. Presumably in keeping with Burpos book, the film ends tying Coltons visions to those of another young person halfway around the world, whose paintings of Jesus eerily coincided with the American toddlers impressions. That may be an intriguing turn of events, but the postscript unfortunately detracts from the most powerful sequence in Heaven is for Real, wherein Todd finally seems to process Coltons journey into something personally crucial and spiritually transformative.Kinnear stars as pastor who questions faithBy ANN HORNADAYWashington PostMOVIE REVIEW 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.com NOWALLDIGITAL!SHOWTIMES FOR FRI. 4/25 -WED.4/31 The Other Woman (PG-13)1:45; 4:30; 7:15; 9:55* Heaven is for Real (PG) 1:40; 4:15; 6:50; 9:20*Captain America Winter Soldier (PG-13)1:00; 4:00; 7:00; 10:00 *Transcendence (PG-13)1:35; 4:20; 7:05; 9:50* Rio 2 (PG)2D 1:50; 6:50 3D 4:15; 9:20** Friday, Saturday only Bogart film festival May 1! bogartfilmfestival.com Go laugh at Random Acts of ComedyThe Red Barn Theatre in Key West ends its season with Short Attention Span Theatre: Random Acts of Comedy, a series of 10minute humorous plays. Random Acts combines five directors, seven plays and nine actors. Mimi McDonald coordinates the project with the help of Gary McDonald, Jack McDonald, Amber McDonald Good and Richard Grusin. I know this sounds like a family affair and it is, Mimi McDonald said. I was going to call the project Happy Meals factoring all the McDonalds involved but decided to go with Random Acts of Comedy because that title reflects the variety of the shows selected. Some of plays were suggested by the City Theatre in Miami, which has a successful run of short plays each year.

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 8B Saturday, April 26, 2014 Your Florida Keys Center Console Headquarters! All the best Center Console models from Jupiter, Pursuit, and Grady-White in stock Expect the Best! BOAT SALES AND MARINA BOAT SALES AND MARINACaribee CaribeeVisit us: Mile Marker 81.5 Bayside Islamorada, FL 33036 | 305.664.3431www.caribeeboats.com It may be the angle of the sun that starts the process. As spring matures and summer creeps closer, the chain of events is the same every year: A raging current pushes close to Key West and continues past the Lower Keys on its way to Marathon and the Upper Keys. The spring thaw up north is causing snow (lots of it) to melt and the frost lines to break, with all of the chilly runoff making its way into the Gulf of Mexico. Add to that a warming of upper water columns and you have a turbulent change that lends itself to odd catches and experiences in April. For example, take Capt. Austin Carlson from Two Conchs Charters out of Big Time Bait and Tackle in Marathon who is following the career path of his father, Capt. Jack Carlson. Two Conchs client Jack Griffin pulled the youngest captain card and was rewarded an exotic and large cubera snapper weighing 42 pounds. It shows that the younger Carlson is likely to follow his dad in developing uncanny fish-catching abilities. Young deckhand John Guieb on the Lethal Weapon out of the Westin Key West Resort and Marina sent a picture of a migrating, massive hammerhead shark that he and Capt. Teddy Baier were able to leader, then photograph and release for their anglers. The catch was great but the description of the experience was notable, too. Guieb called it a monster hammerhead every bit of 11 and a half feet, 44 minutes.... He continued, I was grinning ear to ear, half a spool on its first run. John pulled me right into the scene with his enthusiasm.Capt. Kyle Kelso of All Water Charters out of the Hurricane Hole on Stock Island teamed up with fellow guide Capt. Ryan Carter to take advantage of an ultimate April opportunity. Spawning permit on the wrecks was the first on the list and the first task to fall, after all these backcountry guides know permit. The next challenge was a bit more out of their comfort zone, especially running a bay boat.Luckily, the seas were perfect and the migration of sailfish was in full force allowing the duo to make magic. Working every day during season and then taking a day off to catch permit and sailfish the same day is indicative of the spring condition in the Florida Keys. Capt. Seth Hopp of FishMonster Charters took some time off the poling platform of his Beavertail skiff to join me on a late afternoon sunset cruise on the Premium Time out of the A&B Marina in Key West with clients from Iowa. In the search to find dolphin in the harbor, a big school of migrating tarpon popped up just west of Sunset Key, heading in full gallop through Northwest Channel.The term happy fish is used to describe tarpon that are milling, daisy chaining and ready to eat. Not these fish; they had a purpose.They were in full migration mode with no consideration of the 1,000 horse power diesel motors idled up to stay close to their school. The tarpon were digging hard with their tails and Seth caught many in full flight with the Nikon. What a treat to see. Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters in Key West.Sometimes even veteran anglers get a big liftMarlin Scott On TheWaterQuick Fact:As summer creeps closer, a raging current pushes close to Key West and continues past the Lower Keys on its way to Marathon and the Upper Keys.April: Showers, surprises Jack Griffin shows the 42-pound cubera snapper he caught with Marathon Capt. Austin Carlson. Raiders star Joseph Dunand, but Diaz homered to left to set off a wild Gulliver celebration at home plate.After Velez, who had entered the game with a 0.90 earned-run average, had pitched five innings, Wells, with his 0.26 ERA, took over. Inning after inning, the senior mowed down the Raiders. Thirteen of the 18 outs he got were on strikeouts. Meanwhile, the Conchs kept threatening against reliever Robert Touron, but kept leaving the winning run in scoring position. With two on and one out in the 10th by this time the radio connection had been restored after Lopezs phone battery had gone dead for half an inning Anthony Henriquez struck out and Jay Feathers flied out Leading off the 11th, Wells reached second when his ground ball was thrown wildly past first base by the third baseman. Gulliver brought German Marcos into pitch. He got Andy Perez on a grounder that sent Wells to third. Velez, a .400 hitter, was walked intentionally. Valdes, another .400 hitter, stepped to the plate, and, a moment later, Rick Lopez went crazy.The Conchs, who are 243-1 (including two preseason games) will play the loser of the Florida Christian-St. Brendan 15-4A title game in the regional quarterfinals Thursday night at Rex Weech Field.Conchs are now 24-3-1From Conchs, 1BCanes hit football fieldThree weeks of spring football practice begin Thursday for Coral Shores High players.Well do some [weight] lifting, have a meeting and be on the field, said returning head coach Ed Holly.
