A fleet of 31 kayaks and paddleboards battled winds gusting from 14 to 25 mph to complete a 12-mile route in the first El Radabob Warrior Challenge, held last Saturday off Key Largo. The paddlers raised more than $6,000 for Team River Runner, a nonprofit organization for veterans and military members. Despite the winds, the fastest kayaker completed the course in two hours, 10 minutes. The top paddleboard time was 2:22.PADDLING PRIDE Divers stranded when line snapsHeaded back to Key Largo through rough seas late Tuesday afternoon, Capt. Joe Hall on the Sailors Choice party boat didnt really believe what I was seeing. A lone diver, frantically waving his arms, bobbed alone among 6-foot seas near Pickles Reef off Tavernier.It was really rough. Waves were crashing over the bow of our boat, Hall said. I barely caught a glimpse of him. Mate Jamie Stephenson put the ladder down and helped the diver onto the 65foot fishing boat. Then [the diver] asked, Is everybody else here? I asked him what he meant. That started an intense rescue effort that found four other divers, scattered from near Molasses Reef to Pickles Reef, about three miles away. The five-diver group from Georgia was diving at Molasses Reef when the anchor line from their unmanned boat snapped. One of the divers was underwater when he saw the anchor line go slack, said Officer Bobby Dube, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman. They went to the surface and saw the boat drifting away. They didnt leave anybody topside, Dube said. This shows why its always a good idea to leave a safety man on deck. The boat owner, tentatively identified as Steve Lunsford, tried to swim after the boat but strong winds estimated at 25 mph pushed the vessel away. The Sailors Choice started running a search pattern after hearing Lunsfords story. Many of the 18 fishing customers aboard went forward to scan the seas.Everybody on board helped out, Hall said. You could see they knew they were part of something important.Four FWC patrol boats headed offshore after getting the 5 p.m. call. One of the FWC boats later rescued a diver, who apparently tried to follow Lunsford, near Pickles Reef. The Sailors Choice accompanied by a Sea Tow Key Largo boat, spotted the remaining three divers, who had inflated their buoyancy compensators and stayed near Molasses Reef. By the time we saw them, they were drifting farther offshore, Hall said.

Commissioners Heather Carruthers and Danny Kolhage agreed and voted against the contract.Carruthers called not seeking bids on contracts with tens of millions unconscionable.

A 50-year-old man arrested Wednesday for attempted murder in connection with a Key West attack remained at the Miami-Dade County jail Friday with no bond allowed.Kevin Ray Jones will be brought to the Keys to face trial once extradition paperwork is complete.Key West police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said federal agents with the U.S. Marshals Services Fugitive Task Force arrested Jones on the mainland after working with Key West police to find him. Crean said that on Nov. 16, the victim, 31-year-old Stephanie Evans, accepted a ride home from Jones when she was at the Green Parrot bar downtown because it was raining. During the ride, Jones reportedly punched her in the face, momentarily knocking her unconscious. When she came to, the suspect grabbed her purse and shoved her out of his truck. He then ran over her and fled the scene. Evans suffered a crushed spine and was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center. She was left paralyzed from the waist down. Detectives fingered Jones in part using surveillance video from a nearby hotel, and witnesses. They found his truck and identified him as the owner. Jones is charged with attempted murder and robbery.

A home now assessed $404 annually for the collection of garbage, recycling materials and yard debris would pay no more than $456 by 2024, according to contract terms. Its a good contract and Im comfortable with the people who do it, Murphy said of the firms. Long-term relationships mean something to me. I dont think were being screwed over. Neugent said Marathon city leaders and many Upper Keys residents were adamant about staying with Marathon Garbage Service and Keys Sanitary, locally owned firms that have handled local pickups for decades with few complaints. New 10-year contracts for Marathon Garbage and Keys Sanitary later passed on unanimous votes. The haul-out contract with Waste Management covers Monroe County garbage driven to mainland disposal sites, much of which goes to a waste-toenergy plant. Costs based on a price per ton (now $84.50 per ton for transport and disposal) will amount to an average of $7.5 million per year until 2024. Citizens groups including the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowners Associations, the Upper Keys Citizens Association, Last Stand and the Sugarloaf Shores Property Owners called for new bidding and more transparency in the haulers actual costs. No bids on a 20-year-old contract is problematic, said Lower Keys resident Walt Drabinski. 10-year deals for trash approvedFrom Trash, 1A tion.

They were given computer time and [it was explained] what they wanted to look for, Bayerl said. At one point, the teams portfolio had risen to more than $130,000, but the JCPenney stock lost quite a bit in the two weeks before the end of the game. There are many analysts predicting its not doing well because the store isnt doing well. It did go up again [after the game ended] so they would have done OK, Bayerl said. The second-place Marathon High participant was junior Reef Landrum, who finished 20th overall in the division with $104,079. Third place was junior Tasha Cummings, who finished 32nd overall with $102,864. Its an investment attitude toward money and its an academic task as well, Bayerl said.

But if the group tries to sell the three-acre tract or change its use, all $580,350 in fines would become due, commissioners decided on a 4-1 vote.Members of the volunteer MMC, one of the few remaining South Florida groups that responds to marine-mammal strandings, asked to have all fines dropped so the MMC can refinance mortgages on the land it purchased for $458,000 in 2009.Commissioners refused, even as they praised the groups dedication and endorsed its mission as worthy.The property has a reputation that goes back 15 years of being a scofflaw when it comes to code violations, Commissioner David Rice said.Violations and the resulting fines would not have happened unless somebody in the organization who had responsibility was seriously asleep at the switch, Rice said.Most violations centered on an unfinished building, along with failure to get permits or inspections for storage units, sheds, campers, fences, electrical connections and plumbing. The last violations apparently were corrected in 2012. Former MMC Chairman Robert Coakley wanted to keep the focus on a missed completion date for an office building on the property, which was unfinished for years before it got a certificate of occupancy in 2012. We demonstrated the current group in charge of the facility is working successfully with the county, Coakley said.Assistant County Attorney Lisa Granger told the commissioners, Mr. Coakley does not recognize this was the fifth case against MMC. Two of them did not result in fines but three of them did, and one dates back to 2006.Commissioners were not willing to entirely forget a former MMC leadership that included one individual ... who clearly thumbed his nose at the county and created this situation, problem after problem, Commissioner George Neugent said.Given the egregious nature and long history of problems, Commissioner Heather Carruthers said, its hard for me to say forgive it completely. Mayor Sylvia Murphy proposed the 10 percent settlement as long as that property is used for the purpose for which it was intended. County Attorney Bob Shillinger said a settlement could be drafted to include a mandate to keep the site in use solely for marine animal rescues. Any sale or use change would restore a lien seeking the balance of the massive fines. Commissioner Danny Kolhage voted against the fine reduction, saying it was an arbitrary decision for one particular organization that we like....

Jason Madnick ripping tags off stolen dive equipment, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. They were near a Mitsubishi Lancer.The car was on the side of State Road 905 with the cars hazard lights flashing when Madnick stopped around 1 a.m. to see if the teens were OK, Herrin said. The teens were pulling red and green tags off what Madnick described as new pieces of dive gear a buoyancy compensator, dive fins, dive bags and several wet suits. After telling Madnick they just bought the gear for $50, Rivero changed his story and said they bought it from an unknown person in Islamorada for $450. Madnick looked inside the car and saw more dive equipment.After a radio check, Madnick found out that two dive shops Scuba Outlet at mile marker 106 and Sea Dwellers Dive Center at mile marker 99.8 had been burglarized a few hours earlier.Madnick found burglary tools inside the Lancer, including fence cutters, gloves and hand-held radios, Herrin said.

A 14-foot great white shark dubbed Katharine which has garnered a cultlike following since she began swimming south from Cape Cod months ago apparently has decided the Middle Keys is as far she as wants to go. Katharine, fitted with a satellite tag last August off Cape Cod, has been making her way south, with pings from her trip being picked up all along the east coast. She pings when she flips her dorsal fin, which has the tag attached, into the air. Trackers are following the 2,300-pound shark on the marine research website OCEARCH. Great whites are extremely rare in the Florida Keys. Katharine had pinged Monday off Key Largo and then at 8:09 a.m. Wednesday off Marathon, indicating she was bent on continuing south. However, her tracking on Friday showed she had done a 180, turning around and swimming north.Still, Katharines trek may provide new information for researchers. Katharine could reveal the path that an Atlantic female great white takes to get to the Gulf of Mexico.While another great white named Betsy took a similar path as Katharine, she did not ping enough times for OCEARCH to see how she traveled into the Gulf of Mexico, where she was last seen. Betsy had pinged while she was in the middle of the Atlantic and then pinged again when she was already in the gulf. With information from the Miami Herald. industrial. Were going to make it a lot better. Its going to be 100 times better than we have right now, he said. Garrett told the Keynoter he plans to put an ordinance for first hearing on the changes on the June 10 City Council agenda. If approved, it would require a second, largely ceremonial, hearing on June 24. On April 22, the council denied Lopez the right to open the business because of conflicts between a table (103.15.1) and corresponding section (104.27) in the city code.That vote was 3-2 in favor of a Stirrup Key Homeowners Association appeal to overturn the Planning Com missions Dec. 16 ruling (3-2 vote) in favor of the transfer station. Vice Mayor Chris Bull and Councilman Rich Keating dissented.The table in the code says recycling facilities, which Lopezs team maintains the business would be, are an allowed use in industrial zoned areas. The site is zoned industrial and Lopez operates his current business there.But section 104.27 prohibits a construction and demolition debris transfer station, which Garrett considers the business to be. But he drafted the revision, which will allow Lopez to proceed, at the direction of the council.Despite denying Lopez in April, several council members were clear they would reconsider their vote if the discrepancies in the code were cleared up. Thats what Mondays hearing was about.The main point of contention was whether a construction and demolition debris transfer station should be considered an as of right use or require a conditional-use approval from the City Council. Planning Commissioner Lynn Landry eventually moved to approve the use as long as it is a conditional use. The vote was 2-2, with Commissioner Lott Panskyy and Chairman Jim Tashjian dissenting. A tie vote means fail. But Panskyy, a self-proclaimed advocate of property rights, then moved to accept the law (as of right) as Garrett wrote it. It was approved, 3-1, after Commission Dan Zieg changed his stance.

But the crocs have always been here. This is the Venetian Shores subdivision in Key Largo in the 1970s. The wildlife warden set off a cherry bomb in the water (that would get you in serious trouble today) to get this crocodile to climb onto land. The warden then snagged him with a giant snag hook. The croc won the first round, though, because the snag hook came loose, flew back and caught the warden in the arm.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALOn Medicare fraud, some progress seenLETTERS TO THE EDITORBig firms dont careWith fewer and fewer small businesses surviving and more and more corporations permeating our oncequaint little islands in the Keys, I have true concerns about what is happening and will continue to happen to our workforce. Let me compare the two. Owners of small businesses see firsthand the blood, sweat and tears of their workers. They hear firsthand of their employees troubles at home; the sickness of their children, their parents or themselves; and their financial problems. They realize that when those employees leave for the day, their day is just beginning. They have to go home, cook dinner, clean house, do laundry, pay bills and, in many cases, get ready for job No. 2 or 3, only to have to get up the next morning and face the same routine. They recognize and appreciate hard work, sacrifice and loyalty. On the other hand, and there may be rare exceptions, most large corporations only see numbers. They dont see the blistered hands, the tears of frustration, the tired feet, the lines of worries on the faces of their employees. They dont see them walking or riding their bikes in the heat, wind, cold or rain to get to their jobs. They dont see the workers standing at a bus stop for hours just to get a seat on that bus to get to work on time. All they seem to see and care about are numbers faceless people sitting in their ivory towers or on their luxurious yachts looking at numbers. You no longer exist as a human being in their eyes, just a number. Sadly, thats the way its becoming here in the Keys and, sadly, thats the way its going to continue to be. God bless our small-business owners. Dave Scott MarathonReefs are the first line of defense in hurricanesGUEST COLUMNAt a recent gathering in Orlando, meteorologists predicted a quiet hurricane season this year. Lets hope so. Our coastal development choices, combined with changing storms and sea levels, have greatly increased the risks to our communities of coastal erosion and flooding.Further compounding these risks is the loss of coastal habitats, such as reefs and wetlands our first lines of coastal defense. Case in point the power of healthy coral reefs, which can reduce a full 97 percent of the wave energy that would otherwise hit coastlines, reducing risk to roughly 200 million people around the world, according to a new study in the journal Nature Communications.In fact, in one of many studies, coral reefs in Mexico provided this measured level of benefit during Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Without the reefs absorbing significant wave energy, the coastal damage would have been much worse.This protective power is a big reason why coral reef degradation, particularly the kind that we have seen across southeast Florida and the Caribbean, is having particularly devastating effects on people and nature. Even small reductions in the height of reefs at their highest point where most wave breaking occurs allow significantly more wave energy to pass through and hit coastlines with greater force. This is basic coastal engineering: If you reduce the height of a breakwater that runs the length of your coast by a foot (and the loss has sometimes been much more), then you will see major new impacts. While there have been a lot of gloom-and-doom predictions about the future of reefs and yes, acidification and warming of the ocean are hurting our corals studies show that healthy, well-managed coral reefs can recover and adapt. We are probably underestimating that resilient quality. Herein lies cause for optimism. Investing in coral reef protection and restoration can not only help bring these first lines of defense back to better health, but can also help many communities reduce the overall costs of their coastal infrastructure mix. In fact, weve found that reef restoration for coastal defense can be less than one-tenth the cost of building similar breakwaters echoing similar findings by reinsurance industry leaders. And thats not even considering the other co-benefits of reefs to fishing and tourism industries, for example. Recognizing that reefs provide coastal defense should provide many new opportunities to invest in this natural sea wall as part of a blend of riskreduction strategies. Indeed, hazard mitigation grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and investments to protect infrastructure by departments of transportation or ports should also go in to reef conservation and restoration.At the very least, taxpayers ought to demand that government consider the defense benefits of coastal habitat restoration when examining the costs and benefits of other infrastructure options. Both the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and FEMA are developing approaches for such nature-based accounting. Coral reefs wont do the job on their own, but they should be seen as a critical, cost-effective part of the mix.As we approach June 1, the opening of hurricane season for the Atlantic coast, lets remember that coral reefs are our first line of defense. Michael Beck is the lead marine scientist for The Nature Conservancy. This is republished from the Miami Herald. The Keynoters special hurricane-preparation guide will be printed in our Wednesday edition.South Florida, unfortunately, is king when it comes to such crime;crackdown working, more to be doneMore than half of the people arrested in six cities across the country and charged with Medicare fraud a week and a half ago were from South Florida. Of course were No. 1, but not in a good way. In South Florida, 50 suspects were nabbed in the two-day operation, charged with trying to pocket almost $66 million from the federal health-care program. Its greed gone wild and it comes at the expense of taxpayers, honest medical providers and, worst of all, elderly patients who got bogus care if they got any care at all, and medications they dont need. The take-down was commendable and encouraging the result of strong partnerships among the U.S. Department of Justice, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, law enforcement including the FBI and the legal community, plus new provisions courtesy of the much-maligned Affordable Care Act. The law offers new technical tools to help prevent Medicare fraud and imposes way tougher restrictions on who can be a Medicare provider.For all these strides, however, resources remain stretched and unable to catch even more fraudsters in this ever-fertile region for such bold and, unfortunately, lucrative deception or stop them before they get started.As reported in the Herald, in addition to the usual suspects nabbed in such sweeps doctors, nurses and squirrelly clinic owners this time around, 37 of those arrested were patient recruiters. They stand accused of pocketing thousands of dollars in bribes for supplying Medicare beneficiaries to crooked home-health agencies, mental-health clinics and pharmacies. On top of that, patients themselves, accused of taking kickbacks to let their Medicare cards be fraudulently used, are among those swept up in the bust. Discouraging, yes, but there also is cause for cautious optimism. Because of increased law-enforcement muscle and focus there has been a stunning decline in false billings. According to Wilfredo Ferrer, the U.S. attorney for South Florida, the home-health industry and mentalhealth services have been especially ripe areas for fraud and abuse. This is the only region in the country that has a standalone facility where prosecutors, medical professionals, CMS, the FBI and other agencies work side by side evaluating data. With new technology and data available through the Affordable Care Act, they can review billing claims almost in real time, giving them a greater ability to keep fraudulent claims from being paid. This is significant. By law, claims must be paid within a certain time period, too often, far sooner than it might take to determine whether they are fraudulent. Once the money is paid out, they chase to get it back can be a fruitless waste of time, effort and money. Going forward, lawmakers should re-examine the efficacy of the payment deadline. Its imperative, too, that the resources, including data-analysis technology, to tackle the scourge of Medicare fraud are enhanced. In this case, theres no pride in being No. 1. Miami Herald BECKBoard splits on buildingThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board voted unanimously on Wednesday to finalize the $749,000 purchase of a U.S. 1 lot on Big Coppitt Key that will serve as its Lower Keys headquarters.But commissioners were split on how big the building should be and which district employees should work there.In a 3-2 vote, the board chose to build a maximum 4,200 square feet of office space and approved Director Michael Doyles recommendation not to move the districts four-member Finance Department to the 107th Street office in Marathon. Commissioners Jack Bridges and Phil Goodman dissented, arguing a 3,500square-foot building, as Doyle recommended, would be sufficient and that the entire nine-member administration staff should be moved to Marathon. Doyle admitted that if I were starting a new company, he would move his entire administration to Marathon, but said he was concerned about losing finance employees who live in the Lower Keys and dont want a longer commute.Weve worked really hard to streamline finance. As the director, Im more worried about losing a team thats functioning well, he said. Commissioner Bill Shaw agreed, saying asking somebody to drive 550 miles a week is a real problem. He also prefers a larger building. I would build a 4,200square-foot building and wouldnt finish part of it. In the future, we might want extra space, he said. Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage said if were going to build a building, lets do it right. She argued the space could be necessary if the district gets federal approval to use genetically modified mosquitoes to fight against dengue-fever outbreaks in the future. We are making sure were fighting mosquitoes, but moving forward and having space for technology and advancement, CranneyGage said. Goodman countered by saying that technological advances are an argument against larger buildings. Its not like a business where were going to expand and make new products, he said. Our territory is set. We use technology as a real competitive advantage. If we have another outbreak, we wont add a lot of people like we did before; we fight it other ways.Majority goes for a larger office siteBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board on Wednesday put off voting on a contract extension for Director Michael Doyle after he proposed several last-minute changes prior to the boards meeting in Marathon. The changes dealt with the length of the contract, salary and other points, but Chairman Steve Smith was clear he doesnt like being asked to vote on last-minute changes.I cant vote on the changes you made because I havent looked at it, he said. The consensus last month was to extend Doyle past the July 27 expiration of his original three-year deal, but the boards contract concerns with language in the contract delayed that vote. Wed nesday, the board was split about how long it should extend the contract. Doyles deal includes a provision for oneyear renewals, but the board discussed up to a three-year extension. Doyle took over for longtime former Director Ed Fussell in July 2011 and earns $132,400 annually. At issue Wednesday were questions raised by Smith and Chairman Bill Shaw about Doyles management practices. Each preferred extending the contract through December 2015. In March, Doyles 87question job review was finalized and he received largely positive feedback. The lone exception was Shaw, who rated his performance unacceptable on the majority of questions. If hes extended through December 2015, That would give Michael time to get his management practices in order, Shaw said. Hes a fine entomologist and a fine man, but hes got some problems with the way he manages people, he said. Commissioner Jack Bridges told the board that a short-term extension doesnt offer Doyle security. It leaves the director in a position of saying year to year if they want to put roots down or consider other job offers, he said. Com missioner Jill Cranney-Gage agreed. What the director has done in the last couple years has benefited the district and the taxpayers. Your management practices, maybe there is some polishing [needed], but overall I hate to lose him, she said.Shaw, Smith want director through 2015By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL Doyles deal still not done DOYLE

The 2014 hurricane season is shaping up to be a slow one, federal forecasters said Thursday. Eight to 13 tropical storms are projected, with three to six becoming hurricanes. Of those, no more than two are expected to become major (Category 3 or higher) storms. Forecasters based the projection largely on the expectation that an El Nino weather pattern will form in Pacific waters, fueling winds and water temperatures that help stop storms in the Atlantic from strengthening. Near-average, cooler surface sea temperatures also reduce the risk, said National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Director Kathryn Sullivan. The hurricane season starts June 1 and runs through Nov. 30. Since 1981, an average hurricane season has produced 12 named storms, with six hurricanes and three major storms packing winds of 111 mph or higher. But remarkably, since 2005, Florida, with its 1,260 miles of coastline, has had only one major hurricane Wilma come ashore. In the Keys, Wilma brought with it a massive storm surge, resulting in thousands of cars destroyed from saltwater intrusion; and mold developing in buildings. Thursday, Sullivan and emergency officials repeatedly warned that just one bad storm can wreak havoc look at Hurricane Andrew in south MiamiDade in 1992; and Sandy, which struck the northeast in 2012 when a hurricane merged with a winter storm. Sandy caused more than $50 billion in damage and spurred federal officials to rush completion of stormsurge maps that would help pinpoint the path and depth of flooding during a storm. Sandy reminded us that loss of life and property during a storm doesnt necessarily come about from wind and rain, Sullivan said. It comes from storm surge. NOAA scientists had been working on the maps before Sandy struck, but money from the Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill last year helped speed the work, she said. The maps will tell people in real time where water from a storm surge is expected to go and how high it will rise about 48 hours before winds kick in. The maps will show water levels in comparison to the ground, not sea level or mean sea level, which in the past led to confusion. The National Hurricane Center in Miami will update the maps every six hours as information from the storm is collected, said Holly Bamford, director of NOAAs National Ocean Service. The tool is going to take in conditions of tide as well as surge, which is really important, she said. How high a tide is has major impact. Last hurricane season, federal predictions, along with other forecast models, dramatically miscalculated the number of storms. Forecasters expected the Atlantic to churn out 13 to 20, with seven to 11 becoming hurricanes and three to six strengthening into major storms. The season ended as one of the quietest on record, with only two minor hurricanes. In April, William Gray, founder of Colorado State Universitys Tropical Meteorology Project, and colleague Philip Klotzbach, who issue a closely watched forecast every spring, blamed the bust on the weakening of a deep current that carries denser, saltier water from Earths polar oceans and fuels stronger storms. Last years collapse of the current, Gray said, was the biggest observed since 1950.United Way commits $145,000 in grantsThe United Way of the Florida Keys will distribute a combined $145,000 in grants to 13 nonprofit agencies in 2014-15, the umbrella agency said Friday.

Union members overwhelmingly ratified the deal Monday, bringing to a close, with the boards vote, to more than a year of contentious negotiations that included meditation and court filings. State money approved by the Legislature for staff raises will be released to the School District likely by June 10, said Jim Drake, the districts executive director of finance and performance. He said 85 percent of the raises would be in employees June 15 paychecks, and the rest in the three paychecks following. Thats because even though the contract covers the period from July 1, 2013, to this coming June 30, its basically a 5.5-week deal; the raises are retroactive. The raises are $1,500 for teachers (between 2.24 percent and 4 percent) plus an additional paid day of work that, depending on base salary, ranges from $225 to $400; a 2 percent raise for school-related personnel totaling $55,000; and a 2 percent raise for principals and assistant principals totaling $43,000. Non-union staff such as secretaries, clerical workers and administrators will also get 2 percent raises. The contract includes language allowing the School Board to impose unpaid furlough days if dictated by finances the main sticking point in the negotiations; the union vehemently opposed that. In 2011 and 2012, the board imposed seven unpaid furlough days each year to save $1.7 million each year and avoid layoffs. Talks on a new deal will start likely about two weeks after the school year ends, Superintendent Mark Porter said. Both he and union President Holly HummellGorman said they expect the next round of talks to go more smoothly than the ones just concluded.Negotiations on next deal not far offMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSKeynoter StaffSOCIAL SERVICESLast hurricane season, federal predictions, along with other forecast models, dramatically miscalculated the number of storms.

The Florida Keys have several ceremonies planned. Story, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Conchs move not embracedKey West High Schools decision to move its football team out of the Florida High School Athletic Association and into a new independent league has drawn harsh criticism from former players, but the school insists it will give its players a better chance to succeed. The critics say the league the Gulf Coast Football Conference will offer inferior competition for a program that has long prided itself in playing tough against top opponents.What message are we sending to our kids that theyre not good enough? said former Conch star Ran Carthon, who graduated from Key West High in 1999, played at Florida and in the NFL, and is director of pro personnel for the St. Louis Rams.In recent seasons, the Conchs have played in FHSAA districts with powers such as Miami Norland, Miami Jackson, Booker T. Washington, Cardinal Gibbons and American Heritage, but have not been to the state playoffs since 2004. They have never won a state championship.They will begin the 2014 season in the seven-team Gulf Coast league with Archbishop McCarthy, Pembroke Pines Charter, North Broward Prep, Coral Glades, Inlet Grove (which will play football for the first time) and Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches.Of the six teams that played last season, only Oxbridge had a winning record. The combined record of the teams was 13-48,Some contend lesser teams weaken the football programKEY WEST FOOTBALLBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West coach Johnny Hughes talks with his players at practice Thursday. He says going into an independent league will level the playing field for the Conchs.See Conchs, 2B MARATHON FOOTBALLDolphins solid in spring winIf their first possession in Wednesdays Spring Classic exhibition game is any indication, 2014 could be a solid season for the Marathon High School football team.The Dolphins moved the ball with ease against the Palmer Trinity School defense and scored on a 21-yard run by quarterback Max Elliott. They led 7-0 with 6:48 left in the first quarter and dominated both sides of the ball en route to a 21-10 victory.They performed above and beyond expectations. I wasnt sure because I havent seen us play a game, but they did a great job, new coach Paul Davis said. For the most part, I felt we were in control the whole game.The Dolphins ran their new spread offense effectively, gaining 321 yards of total offense. Sophomore Alex Roca spearheaded the running game, pounding the Falcons defense, as fellow sophomores Chris Freeman and Danny Valadares provided a speedy change of pace.Davis said Roca came in third on the Dolphins backfield depth chart, but that it was obvious Palmer had trouble with his bruising running style. We got to a short yardage play and put him in. Next thing you know he gained eight yards. We said keep giving it to him and pounding it. Chris and Danny did a great job in backup roles, Davis said.Elliott was also solid throwing the ball, concentrating on wide receiver screens and slant routes in the shortpassing game. He completed several passes to junior Robi Garcia and had several other catchable balls dropped.If we caught a couple of those passes, we would have had over 400 yards, Davis said.The teams traded possessions for most of the first half until the Falcons drove down near the Marathon red zone after a short punt. Garcia stopped the drive by intercepting a ball on a first-down play at the 22-yard line. The Dolphins capitalized with an eight-play drive capped off by a Roca touchdown run to make it 14-0 with 1:29 remaining in the half. Palmer kicked a field goal as time expired in the second quarter to make it 14-3.Marathon led 21-3 after Freeman capped off a long drive to open the third quarter with a short touchdown run from inside the 5-yard line. The Dolphins converted two fourth downs on the drive.The defense continued to play well, including a thirdquarter fumble recovery inside the red zone that kept the Falcons behind. Palmer scored on a short touchdown pass as time wound down to make it 21-10. The Dolphins are scheduled to open the 2014 season on Aug. 21 at home against Hillel Community Day School at 7:30 p.m.The team gains 321 total yards against PalmerBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School sophomore running back Alex Roca carries Palmer Trinity School defenders into the end zone during the Dolphins 21-10 Spring Classic home victory.Canes outpoint Pope John PaulAfter limping into halftime down 14-0, Coral Shores Highs Hurricanes exploded for touchdowns on three straight third-quarter possessions to beat Pope John Paul II school, 21-14, in Thursdays Spring Jamboree game, 21-14. The Cane ground game churned out more than 350 rushing yards, while a Coral Shores defense led by linebackers Ariel Correa and Eddie Dunn rose up to shut down John Pauls capable offense. It was a matter of motivation, Cane head coach Ed Holly said of the difference in the two halves at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium. At halftime, we talked about tradition and the Cane way, Holly said. The first half was not the Cane way. Coral Shores needed just five runs to cover 70 yards in the opening drive of the second half. The line opened holes for halfback Henry Jacobsen for runs of 24, 17 and five yards, with freshman Josh Holper escaping on a 23-yard sweep. The Canes dropped the ball twice on the drive but big sophomore guard Andy Bautista recovered both.

which includes the 1-9 posted by the Conchs in their second season under coach Johnny Hughes. This is to even the playing field.... Its been tilted away from us for a long time, Hughes said. Hughes was especially disheartened by a 48-7 physical drubbing the team took last season from American Heritage, which went on to win the 5A state title and send 13 players to Division 1 colleges. Now its the super-elite teams [that recruit] and everybody else, he said. The new league, according to its bylaws, discourages recruiting. Now we have a realistic chance for a postseason spot, Hughes said, pointing out that the top four teams in the regular season will have a playoff tournament.Amber Bosco, the Key West principal and a staunch backer of Hughes, said considerable weighing of pros and cons preceded the decision.Coral Shores and Marathon moved to a [independent] conferences two years ago and information came to us regarding schools that were moving to conferences out of the FHSAA for various reasons, Bosco said. Bottom line, this is in the best interest of our students. There will be competition, a playoff system and exposure for our athletes in a conference that supports academics and sportsmanship.Coral Shores and Marathon play in the South Florida Football Conference. The coming season marks the first time in years that none of the Keys teams will play each other.Among the critics of Key Wests move is Bill Trout, who played for the Conchs in 1963 when they defeated Coral Gables, the No. 1 team in the country. He was the defensive coordinator at the University of Miami when Jimmy Johnson was coach. Its a terrible idea, Trout said. Key West has always been a smaller underdog school with fewer players. It was an honor to beat people bigger than you. Now, its like, If I cant compete, I might as well take my helmet and go home. Mike Blatt of Key West, who also played for the Conchs in that era, said, Its going to be like a pee wee league out there. I think our players can play at a higher level, but I dont think our coaches can coach at a higher level.Critics of the move say that Conchs with Division 1 potential will be at a disadvantage because their highlight films will be against inferior opponents. Clive Georges, now playing at Arizona, was recruited by that school mainly because of a tape that showed him beating a top Miami Norland defensive back on a pass pattern.But the Conchs top player, Mehki Sargent, who ran for more than 1,000 yards last season as a sophomore and looms as a top college prospect, knows he already has his highlight films. He said he would prefer to play against top competition, but I want some wins. The teams we played last year were too good, Sargent said. This year, teams will be like us. Bosco, who said there is mixed reaction from the community, is adamant the move is justified. This isnt backing down or backing out, she said. Those that compare sports today with sports 10 or more years ago may not fully understand how sports have changed. This decision came after looking at two years of data and information. Former Conch running back Clinton McCoy, now at McMurry College in Texas, said that not playing to get into the FHSAA playoffs is playing for nothing. Its not worth it to your players, he said. Youre not going to give 100 percent in the weight room. Its not the right strategy for Key West High School. Ran Carthon recalled playing at Key West when the team had only 18 players. But we were tough and never quit, he said. People respected us for that. Carthon said, It could get to the point there where its not worth playing football anymore. Hughes said he understands the criticism. I appreciate their passion, but lets wait and see, he said. KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday, May 24, 2014 L.A.

McAlearney will be the featured speaker and the honor guard will participate.The Matecumbe Histor ical Trust holds its annual Memorial Day service on May 26 at 9 a.m. at the Islamorada Hurricane Monu ment, mile marker 81.8.The monument officially named the Florida Keys Memorial was dedicated in 1937 to honor the people killed in the Labor Day hurricane of 1935. The ceremony will an include invocation by Pastor Tony Hammon of Island Community Church, speakers, a presentation of colors and the laying of a wreath.American Legion Post 154 of Marathon has planned an open house at noon Monday. The post is at mile marker 49 oceanside. There will be a service with an honor guard. Food and drinks will be available following the ceremony. Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 p.m. local time. Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans the Grand Army of the Republic established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. Its believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.Local springtime tributes to the Civil War dead already had been held in various places. One of the first occurred in Columbus, Miss., on April 25, 1866, when a group of women visited a cemetery to decorate the graves of Confederate soldiers who had died at Shiloh. Nearby were the graves of Union soldiers, neglected because they were the enemy. Disturbed at the sight of the bare graves, the women placed some of their flowers on those graves, as well.In 1966, Congress and President Johnson declared Waterloo, N.Y., the birthplace of Memorial Day. There, a ceremony on May 5, 1866, honored local veterans who had fought in the Civil War. Businesses closed and residents flew flags at half-staff. Supporters of Waterloos claim say earlier observances in other places were either informal, not communitywide or one-time events.By the end of the 19th Century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held on May 30 throughout the nation. State legislatures passed proclamations designating the day, and the Army and Navy adopted regulations for proper observance at their facilities. It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, though it is still often called Decoration Day. It was then also placed on the last Monday in May, as were some other federal holidays.The origin of the holiday is often arguedMEMORIAL DAYNation honors its vets Upper KeysU.S. Air Force Airman Huston E.

LIVINGSTON Sea-turtle nesting under waySea turtle nesting has begun in Florida and continues through the end of October.The Sunshine State accounts for 90 percent of sea turtle nests in the continental United States and five of the worlds seven beachnesting species of sea turtles, including loggerheads, greens, leatherbacks, hawksbills and Kemps ridleys. Residents are most likely to encounter loggerheads, named for their prominently featured block-like heads. Adult female sea turtles can come from as far as the West Coast of Africa to breed and nest on Florida beaches. A typical female might lay 85 to 120 pingpong-sized eggs in one sitting and repeat the process up to eight times in one nesting season. Once deposited, incubation lasts for about two months. To minimize disturbances to nesting sea turtles, residents and visitors should heed the following tips:Use lighting thats seaturtle friendly. Use lowpower and low-frequency lighting angled downward to the ground. Residents and establishments close to the beach should pay special attention to cover fixtures as much as possible and keep them off when not needed because the turtles are attracted to light.Keep the beaches clear. Dont litter or leave behind beach equipment. Demolish sandcastles and fill in holes.Respect zones around nests and on the dunes. Keep back to avoid accidentally stepping on eggs.OUR WILDLIFE

It includes three weeks of plays, a four-part symposium, a South Florida Theatre League play reading and whats called a comedic Story Slam. The Summer Stage season, running through Aug. 3, fills July. Each production will play Tuesdays through Sundays, with curtain at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 to $35. The play reading will be presented by TheatreXP, the producer of Summer Stage. Its The Signature of Fear, a new play by Key West playwright and actor Bob Bowersox. His play Moment of Grace was presented by the Red Barn last year. Main-stage productions of Summer Stage will be Marsha Normans Pulitzer Prize-winning Night, Mother, running July 1 to 6; Samuel Becketts masterpiece Waiting for Godot, running July 15 to 20; and Samuel D. Hunters The Whale, presented July 29 to Aug. 3. We noticed that there are what we call shoulder seasons, Bowersox said, periods of the year where our two great theaters, the Waterfront and the Red Barn, have traditionally been dark. But theres an audience out there still hungry for great professional theater. Bowersox worked closely with Red Barn Artistic Director Joy Hawkins and Executive Director Mimi MacDonald to make Summer Stage a reality. With the rise in summer tourism, we think TheatreXP has proven that Key West has an audience for a summer theater season, MacDonald said. The reading of The Signature of Fear is planned for June 30. It stars Vanessa McCaffrey, Tony Konrath, Melody G. Moore, Karl Stahl, Joan ODowd and Tom Murtha. There is no charge for the reading, but donations will be accepted. Night Mother starring Connie Hurst and Susannah Wells, centers on a young woman and her mother who spend a desperate evening unraveling their sometimes tense and sometimes tender relationship after the daughter makes a stunning and unthinkable announcement. It will be directed by Rebecca Tomlinson. Waiting for Godot stars Bowersox and Konrath as two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone named Godot to arrive and provide their lives with meaning. The play will be directed by George Gugleotti. Rounding out the cast will be Karl Stahl, Ross Pipkin and Dre Cooper. The Whale is the story of a 650-pound grief-stricken, guilt-racked man seeking reconciliation with his estranged daughter. It stars Chad Newman, Melody Moore, Quincy Perkins, Julia Tetreault and Tammy Shanley. Bowersox will direct. The four-part theater symposium focuses on specific areas of theater: Acting, directing, writing and set design. Each panel discussion will feature people from Key Wests stage community addressing each specific discipline. The Story Slam, set for July 13 at the Little Room Jazz Club, 821 Duval St., is a fast-paced night of storytelling during which the storytellers including you, if you want have five minutes at the microphone to tell whatever story they want to, provided it sticks to the theme of the night. Cost is $10. Tickets for all Summer Stage events are available atwww.redbarntheatre.comor by calling 296-9911 or TheatreXP at (302) 5406102.Three plays, a symposium among eventsKEY WESTPhoto courtesy CONCHTV.COMBob Bowersox is overseeing the Summer Stage series. Its the fourth year the Red Barn Theatre in Key West has produced the series. In the village, arts come aliveWalk into the Michelle Nicole Lowe Art Gallery in Islamorada and theres a great chance a smiling Michelle will take a break from painting her latest watercolor creation of colorful marine life to greet you. The 29-year-old Keys native is one of several artists who have opened their own galleries over the past couple of years in the island tourist town which is billed as the Sport Fishing Capital of the World but also has a lesser known but vibrant, growing art community. The ocean inspires a lot of the artists who are here, said Lowe, an avid diver and snorkeler who takes off two days a week to do research for her art. Along a short stretch of U.S. 1, between mile markers 81 and 87, art lovers can find an eclectic mix of galleries, public art and studios that offer classes in painting, ceramics and glass blowing. There are places that feature lobster trap art and others that sell oil paipaintings for thousands. And last year the Keys History & Discovery Center, which exhibits local and Florida art, opened at the Islander Resort. But the places all have one aspect in common: Super-friendly artists, owners and curators who are happy to talk art with visitors. Come inside, said Samantha Decker-Hoppen, a ceramics artist and partner in Morada Way Clay, a fine arts gallery and ceramics studio housed in a warehouse. Its slogan: An adventure in art. Families can come here and play in the clay, Decker-Hoppen said. One day we had a family of 11, and six were kids, added Frank Shaw, a ceramics artist and partner in the business. That was a crazy day. Morada Way Clay offers classes that include Raku Friday, during which participants can choose a piece of pottery to glaze and then relax outside as it is fired in a special raku kiln. The process created by the Japanese uses both fire and smoke to create unique patterns and designs.Districts activeThe gallery and studio are part of the Morada Way Arts & Cultural District, which was formed three years ago to create cultural events and get the word out about the tight-knit art community. We offer something to do thats different than being out on the water, said Besty Keteltas, the art districts executive director. The heart of the district is a pedestrian-friendly, sixblock stretch around mile marker 81.5. It includes the Roberto Pasta Pantaleos Signature Gallery. His paintings of sea turtles, sailfish and mangroves showcase the beauty of the water world of the Keys. Another mainstay is the Redbone Saltwater Art Gallery, owned by Capt. Gary and Susan Ellis. They began collecting artwork to use as prizes for their Redbone fishing tournaments to raise money to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, a disease that inflicts their daughter. Their first grand prize was an original Millard Wells watercolor, Fishermans Sunrise. Their gallery now features the works of about 20 artists. Gallery Morada is a fine American craft gallery owned by Laurie Wickham. Almost everything is hand made in the United States, with a few things made in Europe, she said. The gallery is packed with one-of-a-kind pieces representing the works of about 200 artists. Theres blown glass by Randy Solin, wind-driven sculptures by Mark White and jewelry made from molds o f soapstone sculptures create d by Somers Randolph, a nationally recognized sculptor. Behind the building is an exquisite garden with garden boxes created by Jennifer Hagood. In the garden, work is being finished on an outdoor culinary lab, where classes will be taught. You can learn how to prepare Japanese sushi, French cooking, farm to table, tandoori and more, Keteltas said. The best way to grow culture is through food. The art district also includes OASIS, which stands for Outreach Art Studio Island Style. The nonprofit studio exhibits the works of emerging artists and serves as a space to teach painting and other types of art classes. The art district hosts many special events.

BOAT SALES AND MARINA BOAT SALES AND MARINACaribee CaribeeVisit us: Mile Marker 81.5 Bayside Islamorada, FL 33036 | 305.664.3431www.caribeeboats.com We do tend to speak a different dialect of English in the Florida Keys. It may be because of the unique lifestyle we lead or possibly the effects of the salt and sun on our ever-abused anatomies. I was stopped in the middle of a mad dog bite on the deck of the Premium Time after I referred to one of the dolphin that was hooked as a gaffer-sized dolphin. My angler Kevin Smith took interest in the classifications, so heres how the discussion went, each size of dolphin in charter captain terms:Micro-mini or shaker. Its eight to 14 inches long, well below the legal limit of 20 inches to the fork.These are the youngest and the most aggressive when schooling. When they see something to eat, they normally band together in a magical wave of blue in hot pursuit of your baits. The shakers are generally schooled up under large mats of sargasso and are always ready to feed. The more they eat, the faster they grow up to a pound per month.If they are able to fit a hook in their mouth, they do. Pulling them to the boat is a non-event. Then its a quick de-hooking shake and theyre sent along their way. These are the size that attract larger dolphin and bigger predators. Its not easy being a micro-mini in a big ocean.Chicken. This is 14 to 19.75 inches long. This second stage of dolphin sizing means little difference in habit. They still hang in the same places and will mug your baits. They are hooked up more often than the smaller shakers and are fun for new anglers to battle. When the school sets up behind your boat, everyone can have a blast. Leaving one in the water will keep the school close, where you may have a hope of catching the larger schoolies.Schoolies or swingers. These are 20 to 24 inches long. Measured to the fork, these fish are considered legal but can cause some raised eyebrows back at the dock, especially if you keep too many.The legal limit is 10 per person but many feel the limit should be applied to bigger fish, if even at all. Five anglers on the boat bringing back a full limit is now becoming politically incorrect. This is when the difference between a bull (male) dolphin and a cow (female) dolphin is clearly noticeable by the shape of the head. Now you are moving toward the more powerful heavy lifters and gaffers.Heavy lifters are 24 to 30 inches long and roughly eight to 10 pounds. Now we get to see the power of the fastest-growing fish in the ocean with a lifespan some say of a little more than three years. They act as if there will be no tomorrow when they rush your spread but tend to be in smaller schools, as many of their schoolmates have met their demise. The snap of the outrigger clip and then a good first pull of the reel drag is a signal that a quality dolphin has been hooked.
