IN THE COURTSNo retrial for former copA former Miami Beach police officer doing life in prison for a violent attack on his estranged wife in 2009 on Plantation Key wont be retried on charges of attempted murder, Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Thursday. But William Skinner, 58, will remain in state prison serving a life sentence for armed burglary. I cant justify retrying Skinner for attempted murder, Vogel said. Hes not going to get any more time. Skinner was arrested June 1, 2009, after he fired six shots during a melee with his estranged wife and her boyfriend at a Plantation Key Colony home. The wifes boyfriend survived a bullet wound to his shoulder. The boyfriend was shot as he attempted to hold his front door shut. Indira Skinner, Skinners estranged spouse, was choked earlier during the argument with her husband but not hit by gunfire. The Skinners son, then age 4, was in the house at the time. Responding Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies used a stun gun to subdue Skinner when he reportedly reached for another handgun in his car.In May 2011, an Upper Keys jury in Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcias courtroom convicted Skinner of two counts of attempted second-degree murder, and one count of armed burglary. Garcia imposed life on one of the attempted-murder charges and on the burglary count, and 15 years on the second attempted-murder count.However, this past January, the Third District Court of Appeal ruled that errors in the states standard jury instructions nullified the attempted-murder counts. The court ruled the jury should have been allowed to consider lesser charges of attempted manslaughter.

Efforts to curtail the widespread abuse of oxycodone, a powerful painkiller, played a large role in reducing Floridas death rate from prescribed drugs, state Attorney General Pam Bondi said in releasing a report Thursday. Locally in 2012, Monroe County saw five deaths attributed to oxycodone overdoses. In the first six months of 2013, there were none. However, there were two Keys deaths caused by hydrocodone in that Januarythrough-June period of 2013, double the one local hydrocodone death in all of 2012. The third death was from an overdose of Alprazolam, the main active ingredient in Xanax. In 2012, four Keys deaths were caused by Alprazolam, according to state records. Reports from the second half of 2013 have not been finalized. Bondi said the state has now started compiling information on deaths caused by synthetic drugs, illegal substances said to be growing in popularity. Monroe County information was not available but synthetic drugs caused 30 deaths statewide in the first six months of 2013. This information is crucial to both raising awareness about how deadly these drugs are and understanding just how many lives these drugs claim, Bondi said.Deaths involving synthetics are troublesome, especially as they continue to be sold at some convenience stores and smoke shops, said Gerald Bailey, commissionerBondi cites the crackdown on pill millsPRESCRIPTION ABUSEBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comHundreds receive diplomas this weekCommencements are taking place throughout KeysMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Drugs, 2ASee Graduation, 3AGambian pouch rats are backDespite what many believed, Gambian giant pouch rats have continued taking a liking to their nonnative home on Grassy Key. Despite extensive efforts beginning in 2007 to eradicate the invasive exotic species, state and federal officials are still attempting to kill off the last of the rats. The state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission this week dropped off fliers at Grassy Key homes asking residents to be on the lookout for the pests and describing what they look like compared to other common species like opossum and raccoons. The African rat species can grow up to nine pounds and reportedly appeared on Grassy Key sometime between 1999 and 2001, when they were released by a resident who had been breeding them.We know that there are still some out there and weve been doing some limited trapping and monitoring, FWC nonnative-wildlife biologist Jenny Eckles said.Were also hiring [the U.S. Department of Agriculture] to come back down and do 10-day trappings.

As the deadline nears to do so, just two people including a Monroe County Court judge had applied as of Friday to replace David Audlin on Monroe Countys Circuit Court. Key West attorney Albert Kelley, who specializes in litigation and contract, entertainment and intellectualproperty law, wants the seat from which Audlin resigned effective May 9. Audlin was just two years into his second six-year term and has cited lack of privacy in his personal life as the reason for stepping down. Kelley, 52, graduated from the Florida State University College of Law in 1989. The other applicant is Key West-based Judge Wayne Miller, a county jurist since 1989. County judges, who generally preside over misdemeanors, small-claims court and the like, serve four-year terms. Miller, 61, received his law degree from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn., and was an assistant Keys state attorney from 1981 until his initial election. The 10-member Keys Judicial Nominating Com mis sion, comprising Monroe County attorneys appointed by the governor, is accepting applications through 5 p.m. Wednesday. Chairman Bob Shillinger said he expects more applications to roll in. The Judicial Nominating Commission is tasked with vetting the applicants, then sending a short list of recommendations to the governor. The commission next meets at 5 p.m. Friday in the county administrators conference room of the Gator Building, 1100 Simonton St., Key West. Its open to the public. There will be preliminary discussion of applications and the disclosure of any conflicts commission members might have with the judicial applicants. The commission will then determine vetting responsibilities, Shillinger said.The commission then meets on July 7, again at the Gato Building, to discuss results of the vetting (background checks, education, references, etc.). Applicants will be interviewed July 9 and the deadline to submit three to six recommendations to the governors office is July 14.Judging from the applications of Kelley and Miller, filing an application takes considerable time. For example, theyve included copies of many cases theyve handled. They also must include their tax returns.of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.Overall, prescription drug overdoses caused 13 deaths in the Keys in all of 2012. Drugs involved included Alprazolam, Diazepam (Valium), oxycodone, hydro codone and methadone.Additionally, cocaine overdoses killed five people in the Keys during 2012. Heroin and morphine each caused one death, says a 2012 summary from the Florida Medical Examiners Commission.The statewide report released Thursday, covering January through June of 2013, says 975 deaths were caused by prescription drug use. That is down from 1,054 deaths caused by prescription drug use during the first six months of 2012.Bondi noted that a few years ago, Floridas network of pill mills basically drug retail stores masked as pain clinics accounted for 98 of the nations top 100 prescribers of oxycodone. That was outrageous and had to stop, she said. Now we have some of the toughest pill legislation in the entire country, and now zero [of the top 100] live here.State records dating from 1998 to 2012 show heroin killed a total of 19 people in the Florida Keys. Since five heroin deaths in 1999 and four in 2002, no more than one person has died in any year from a heroin overdose.Deaths from some drugs declineFrom Drugs, 1A Dade Correctional Institute in western Miami-Dade County, was due in Garcias courtroom on June 3 for a hearing to return him to the Keys for retrial on the attempted-murder counts. That now wont happen. Vogel said the case has been emotionally traumatic for the victims. Why am I going to force the victims to go through this again and inflict the trauma, and spend all of the tax money? she said. The decision was made over the past week as Skinners latest court date approached, she said. Before we incurred the expense and brought him back, we had to make a decision, Vogel said, and that decision is to not put him back on trial. Does Skinner have any options left to fight the armed-burglary conviction? No, the prosecutor said. Its the end at this point.Vogel says Skinner is out of optionsFrom Skinner, 1A the rats average three pounds and are usually 20 to 35 inches long. They are gray to brown in color with a pale belly and feet that are offwhite. They have a mostly dark gray tail with an offwhite tip. Eckles said the FWC hopes to complete its contract with the U.S.D.A. by late summer or early fall. Then they put out a bunch of live traps, 150 to 200, bait it with cantaloupe or peanut butter and check them every day, she said. In addition, Eckles said the FWC plans to do more smaller-scale trapping events in between the large-scale [U.S.D.A.] events. That includes cameras to monitor the island. Well focus on the core areas where weve had the most captures, Eckles said, referring to the area around Tropical and Peachtree avenues near the center of the island.Eckles said the last confirmed Gambian rat sighting came in December and noted that it is really hard to eliminate every rat from the island. Were hoping we get help from a lot of different landowners so we can find out where they might be holed up and get permission to trap on their property, she said.The FWC has a nonnative species hotline dubbed Ive Got 1.

Pelletier, an office manager at Marathon Auto Air & Electric at 25th Street and U.S. 1, could not be reached for comment on Friday. Shes the fourth candidate to declare, joining Planning Commissioner Dan Zieg, Code Compliance Board member Bill Kelly and business owner Eric Myrmel. Marathon Auto Air is owned by former longtime Code Compliance Board member Alun Stephen Pearson, who was arrested Feb. 7 for allegedly forging signatures to obtain a duplicate title for a boat belonging to a 70-year-old Tavares man. There will be at least two new council members after the November election. Mayor Dick Ramsay is termed out after three consecutive two-year terms, as is, technically, Ginger Snead. She resigned in February and Councilman John Bartus is completing her term. Vice Mayor Chris Bull is up for re-election should he choose to run. Voting is at large, meaning the top three vote-getters are elected.Official qualifying for the Nov. 4 election is from noon Aug. 5 through noon Aug. 12.Pearson, Pelletiers employer, is charged with felony fraud and passing a counterfeit instrument related to the incident, which took place in October.

But two serious injuries there in separate incidents this past week resulted in two men being airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. Both men apparently remained in critical condition Friday at Ryder, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says. Tuesday about 5 p.m., Aaron Hillgross, 25, of Marathon was on the right fork of a forklift at the Shelter Bay Marina on Coco Plum Drive. Operating it was co-worker Noah Doyle. Hillgross fell off the forklift, the Sheriffs Office said, and was run over by two of the heavy machinerys wheels. When deputies arrived, paramedics were already on scene. Hillgross was flown via air ambulance to Ryder. It was the second forklift accident at Coco Plum in a little more than a month. On April 18, 77-year-old Manuel Perez apparently was using a forklift as a makeshift auto lift around 10 a.m. outside his Avenue H house. The Sheriffs Office says he was working underneath a truck. The truck fell and pinned him. Manuel was taken to Fishermens Community Hospital and pronounced dead a short time later. This past week, previous to Hillgross being injured, Roland Rodriguez, 51, suffered a head injury at D&D Seafood, also on Coco Plum Drive, either late Monday or early Tuesday. Deputy Becky Herrin says her agency was called around 9 a.m. Tuesday as paramedics were working on Rodriguez. They told Deputy Gil Gonzalez that Rodriguez would be airlifted to Ryder. Herrin said a man who works on a boat docked on the property told Gonzalez that Rodriguez, whose nickname is Loco, was on the property Monday night. He said the man on the boat reported that Rodriguez was drunk and was asked to leave the property. He said at one point, Rodriguez got into a confrontation with another person at the boatyard. He said Rodriguez fell or was pushed into the water and swam away. Rodriguez returned later and began throwing lobster traps at the man with whom he argued, Herrin said. He said Rodriguez must have fallen from atop one of the lobster traps and rolled into the water, and he and the man who called police got him out of the water. He said he gave Rodriguez a blanket and life jacket and left him sleeping in front of the building.Both occur in Coco Plum areaMARATHONKeynoter StaffTwo seek Audlins Circuit Court seatMore applicants are expected as deadline nearsBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comKEYS COURTS
City finalizes referenda for NovemberThe Marathon City Council on Tuesday OKd ballot language for six referenda to be on the November ballot that, if approved by voters, would change the city charter. Most notably, residents could choose to change the length of council terms from two to three years and require at least a full term off the dais, as opposed to the current one year, before termed-out candidates could run for office again. A second referendum would limit council members to two consecutive three-year terms as opposed to the current limit of three consecutive two-year terms. The council formed its Charter Review Committee in January to determine if changes were needed in the 15-year-old charter, which is the document guiding city government. The councilappointed committee met four times to compile its list of proposed changes. The other four referenda (the council needs to hold one more hearing to make the referenda official and send the language to the county Supervisor of Elections Office):To eliminate the current provision for runoffs to break tie votes in council elections. The referendum proposes that a tie vote be resolved in the first instance by lot under the direction of the city clerk, without a separate election.To eliminate council members participation on the city canvassing board, which essentially verifies city election vote counts. The referendum proposes to have the board comprise the city manager, city clerk and city attorney, with the manager selecting substitute member(s) if one or more cannot serve.To require initiative petitions, which are allowed by the charter, to be reviewed within 20 days by the city attorney for legal sufficiency, with mandatory action by the council within the next two regularly scheduled council meetings and submission, if necessary, to the electorate at the next general election.To eliminate dated language related to the city transitioning its government from county government after incorporation in 1999.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONresents the Keys and part of Miami-Dade County who was elected in 2012.Marathon High School, 8 p.m. Thursday at the school.

Johnina Miller, 26, and Hugana Davis, 38, are accused of being part of a larger crime ring dubbed the foxy ladies in which women throughout South Florida go to bars, drug mens drinks, then rip them off, says Key West Police Department spokeswoman Alyson Crean. She says detectives from the Broward Sheriffs Office and Fort Lauderdale Police Department are working to build cases against Miller and Davis in those jurisdictions. In fact, the BSO has already charged the two up there, Crean says. Miller and Davis are accused of trying to rip off a Sarasota man May 23 at the Westin Key Resort and Marina, where the man was staying. Crean says he was at the Red Garter bar on Duval Street when two women struck up a conversation with him. After a few drinks, the three headed to the mans boat. At the dock, the women allegedly began trying to pull the mans Rolex off his arm. After several tries, he fell down and they took the watch and fled. Crean says a witness saw the scuffle and watched the women get into a cab. He took down the cabs number and called police, who intercepted the cab and detained the women. Miller and Davis are charged with robbery and using another persons identification. Miller, arrested back at the Westin, is being held on $62,000 bond. Davis, being held on $60,000 bond, was arrested at 1604 N. Roosevelt Blvd., the city police station. Wanted for a May 10 Key West robbery is alleged Miller and Davis cohort Chantelle Juanita Hadley, 20. Crean says that day, a Boynton Beach man was at the Ricks entertainment complex on Duval Street when a woman approached him, asking him to dance. After telling her no numerous times, he became suspicious she might try to slip a drug into his drink, so he left the bar. Crean says the woman followed him, they argued and she ripped the guys Rolex from his arm and fled. The victim reportedly identified Hadley from a photo lineup and a warrant was issued her for arrest on Tuesday.KEY WEST DAVIS MILLERKeynoter StaffResidents to decide on six ballot questions Third sought in separate Rolex ripoff

It saw lots of action in World War II. By 1971, her military life was over, having been decommissioned and put in a Philadelphia shipyard. The now-artificial reef is actually two separate pieces during scuttling, it broke in two. The stern sits in about 200 feet of water, the forward section in about 250 feet. Diving the Wilkes Barre isnt for beginners, as both parts of the ship are considered technical dives.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALNow is the time to get preparedLETTERS TO THE EDITORBe safe on the waterThousands of boaters took to Floridas beautiful waterways for Memorial Day weekend. Nothing says the start of summer better than a sunny day and a boat ride with family and friends.To enjoy your day to the fullest, remember to be careful. Safe boating is in your hands. Each year, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers respond to far too many tragic boating accidents. Unfortunately, there have been 236 accidents so far this year, including 11 fatalities. Earlier this month, two officers were called to an accident near Brooks Bridge in Fort Walton Beach. Two vessels collided, causing one of them to capsize, leaving three people stranded in the water. Fortunately, the people suffered only minor injuries and were able to swim to shore. Some are not that lucky. Out of last years 62 boating fatalities, 38 were due to drowning. There are some basic things you can do to keep yourself safe and have a fun day on the water. First and foremost is to pay attention. Boat operators need to keep an eye on their surroundings, including weather, waves, wildlife and objects like waterway markers, docks and other boats. The FWC reports that boat operators failing to pay attention remains the leading cause for boating accidents. FWC officers patrol our waterways to keep all boaters safe by checking that they have the appropriate gear and are operating safely. Ensure your encounters with FWC officers are positive ones by planning ahead and paying attention on the water. To get ready for this weekend and learn more about safe boating, visit www.myfWC.com/Boating. You can even search there for the Florida Boat Ramp Finder to help you find a great place to launch your boat. Katie Purcell Community relations FWC, TallahasseeHelp the mentally illMiami Dade-County Judge Steve Leifmans May 18 column in the Miami Herald, Give people with mental illness treatment, not a jail cell, about funding appropriate care and housing for the mentally ill outside of jails is an example of an outstanding public servant going above and beyond to serve the public, especially those who need our help the most. On the same day another article, about the failure of our police, correctional institution employees and coroner to complete an investigation into the suspicious death of a mentally handicapped inmate after two years, appears to be an example of public servants serving each other. We need to revisit the cuckoos nest. Tom Woods IslamoradaNot welcomed here?First come, first served just a saying or reality? Well, for the residents of Key Colony Beach, it has zero meaning.It means that if you want to use the U.S. Postal Service on Key Colony and residents have to wait on line, go elsewhere to be served. They would rather lose money in lieu of residents waiting for me to conduct mine. I have been cursed at and told to go to another post office to conduct business rather than have residents wait for me to conduct mine.I was treated in a more civilized manner when I returned from Vietnam compared to the rude, degrading, uncivilized manner demonstrated by two women telling me to leave because my presence was off-putting. Talk about offputting the same one who called me a name for using the Key Colony post office approached my wife in our car and told her to go elsewhere also.Douglas Power Grassy KeyBoat responsiblyWhat does one think of an extremely arrogant owner of a local Viking yacht who regularly has zero regard for the local working-class fishermen? For two years running, this vessel has put our head boat in the bottom with its excessive wake at the no-wake marker at Vaca Cut, which had been reported, to no avail. We have had to change propellers and related equipment due to his continued negligence and disregard for all other boaters, all while maintaining a schedule. Granted, his getaway home, vessel and boathouse are worth far more money than our vessel, but does it make it right? Weve worked with charities for 20-plus years and this is the way our business gets treated? As a lifer on the water, I truly have to question how many other vessels/people and property this boat owner has damaged or injured with no responsibility for his negligence. I know I will not be intimidated by his wealth. Bill Hauck MarathonWith hurricane season starting, its just plain smart to plan rather than to react to disasterJune 1 marks the start of a new six-month hurricane season, a time of year for which many responsible residents and savvy business owners prepare. Sadly, this is not the case for all, as nearly 10 years (since Wilma in October 2005) of quiet hurricane seasons has instilled a false sense of security, perhaps even an air of indifference, in many. Its been 54 years since the Keys had a direct hit by a hurricane. Donna made landfall near Marathon early on Sept. 10, 1960, with winds of 130 mph. Since then, there have been brushes and near hits but no real direct hits, thankfully. That doesnt mean we havent suffered; not at all. We all know Wilma only grazed the Keys and while there was only minimal wind damage, the impact of the storm surge was significant. That long span in between devastating storms can cause some to throw caution to the wind. We cant do that because all it takes is one storm to change the complexion of our community. Remember: Andrew in 1992 was the first named storm that year, and it forever changed the landscape economically, physically and socially of south Miami-Dade. Thursdays annual hurricane conference in Islamorada sponsored by the Lodging Association of Key West and the Florida Keys, in partnership with the Tourist Development Council, provided a sharp reminder that complacency can have far-reaching shortand long-term effects. According to Monroe County Emergency Management, 75 percent of businesses without a continuity plan for a hurricane end up out of business within three years after a storm. Thats sobering. The message from the National Weather Service resonates more than ever: Emphasize the hazards associated with a storm, not what category level it is or what the wind speeds are. The hazards can be tended to, the wind speed and storm surges cannot. Every year the National Hurricane Center publishes a season preview of the upcoming hurricane season. This is where the season as a whole is put into a broad six-month snapshot. They admit inherent flaws in that type of broad forecasting. The primary fear with that broad-brush forecast is that if a quiet season is predicted, many will ignore basic preparation and planning. Thats dangerous because this years preview highlights the presence of an El Nino, a Pacific weather event that tends to minimize Atlantic hurricane activity. The reality is there are simply no guarantees. Elected state leaders do what they can to help you prepare, this year waiving the states 6 percent sales tax on many hurricane supplies through next weekend (there are cost restrictions). That includes portable self-powered lights, portable self-powered radios, weatherband radios, generators, first-aid kits, some types of batteries and tarpaulins. Take advantage of the savings to be prepared. Its a lot more proactive and smarter than just watching that cone of uncertainty on the weather radar when a storm threatens. The U.S. Coast Guard and the FWC says that most drownings stemming from boating accidents are easily preventable by using life jackets. Interim medical examiner starts this monthA forensic pathologist who served as chief medical examiner for areas including Daytona Beach and Oakland, Calif., soon will take over as interim medical examiner in Monroe County. Dr. Thomas R. Beaver intends to apply for the fulltime Florida Keys position when a search process begins this summer. Monroe Countys current medical examiner, Dr. E. Hunt Scheuerman, submitted his resignation effective June 20 after accepting a position teaching postgraduate pathology at East Tennessee State University. State Attorney Catherine Vogel appointed Beaver to the post as interim medical examiner this week. We needed to find most qualified applicant and Dr. Beaver is extraordinarily qualified, she said. Beaver also emerged as a search committees top candidate for the post as chief medical examiner in Jacksonville. We stole him away, Vogel said. He chose to come here instead. Beaver worked as chief medical examiner for the Florida judicial circuits covering Volusia and Seminole counties from 1999 to 2006. In July 2003, Beaver was taken into protective custody under the states Baker Act after what Volusia County Sheriffs Office deputies described as a possible suicide attempt, according to reports in the Daytona Beach NewsJournal and Orlando Sentinel Beaver said Thursday accounts of a personal matter that escalated ...got completely misreported. Its pretty unfortunate, and it happened 11 years ago, he said. I was on prearranged vacation time, and was back at work when I was supposed to be. I didnt miss a day of work. Beaver continued in his Florida post for another three years until joining the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center as director of the Division of Forensic Pathology. In Texas, he also served as Lubbock Countys chief medical examiner. Beaver moved to his native California in 2009 and has served as chief medical examiner for Kern and Alameda counties. Alameda County, population 1.5 million, includes Oakland, which averaged more than two murders per week in 2012. County sheriffs appoint medical examiners in California, Beaver said. Both [counties] required law-enforcement background checks. I would not have been hired if everything wasnt clean. Vogel agreed. A lot of time has passed [since 2003] and he has demonstrated that he has done a fine job. There are not that many people out there with my qualifications, maybe a couple of dozen, said Beaver, a pathologist. The list would very short. He expects to arrive in the Keys around June 16, following his sons highschool graduation. I want to make it a smooth transition, he said. Im not coming to reinvent the wheel or fix something thats broken. I want to continue doing the good work that Dr. Scheuerman has been doing. Beaver said the Keys appeal to him as a waterlover and scuba diver who wants to learn to sail. I grew up in California loving the ocean, he said. And the water is a lot warmer in the Keys. Scheuerman said he resigned his Monroe County position for the chance to teach postgraduate pathology in his native Tennessee. Ive always loved teaching and these opportunities dont come along very often, he said. We still love it here and will miss the Keys and friends. Scheuerman could be summoned back to Monroe County to testify if needed in homicide trials involving an autopsy he performed. The process for finding a permanent Monroe County medical examiner begins with formation of a local search committee. That panels list of recommended candidates will be forwarded to the Florida Medical Examiner Commission for its fall meeting, likely in October. The commissions report then goes to the office of Gov. Rick Scott for confirmation.Beaver replaces Scheuerman, whos off to TennesseeMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comDr. E. Hunt Scheuerman, submitted his resignation effective June 20.
Complaint: 4 biasedTwo health organizations filed a complaint with federal health officials Thursday alleging some Florida insurance companies are violating the Affordable Care Act by structuring their insurance plans in a way that discourage consumers with HIV and AIDS from choosing those plans.The National Health Law Program and The AIDS Institute said four insurance companies offering plans in Florida through the federal online exchange required HIV and AIDS patients to pay a percentage of their often expensive drugs instead of a flat co-pay. Instead of paying a flat $10 co-pay at the pharmacy, the plans require patients to pay 40 percent to 50 percent of the cost of their drug, which could run into the thousands of dollars, according to the complaint which health experts say could have national implications.The groups also alleged that the plans charged high up-front costs and require unwieldy prior authorizations. The complaint, filed with the U.S. Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services, asks the agency to investigate the Florida plans offered by CoventryOne, Cigna, Humana and Preferred Medical and require the insurance companies to take corrective actions if necessary.Federal health officials said they are reviewing the complaint. The report alleges that CoventryOne requires consumers to pay 40 percent coinsurance for the cost of all HIV drugs, including generics, after a $1,000 deductible.That would be about $1,000 per month per drug in most instances. What patient could afford that? said Carl Schmid, deputy executive director of the AIDS Institute.Health advocates warn high costs cause patients to skip doses or go off their medications altogether, causing serious health complications.Cigna, Humana and Coventry said in separate statements that their plans follow the latest HHS guidelines, cover all medically necessary HIV drugs and offer a variety of options so consumers can pick a plan that best meets their health needs. Preferred Medical did not immediately return a call seeking comment. South Florida attorney Vicki Tucci said shes trying to help more than 30 clients with HIV and AIDS to get off Humana, Coventry and other plans and switch to insurer Florida Blue, which advocates said offers better coverage for those conditions. They go to the pharmacy and find their drug is not covered and they cant afford them. Theres no way, Tucci said. Tucci is working with advocacy groups that would pay the cost of medication while those with HIV and AIDS are without insurance until the next open enrollment period later this year. Even before the Affordable Care Act took effect, insurers had increasingly begun requiring patients to pay a percentage of their drug costs instead of a flat co-pay, but experts say patients often spend more for their prescriptions in plans offered under the health law because of the co-insurance. The organizations said they didnt know how many HIV and AIDS patients had purchased health plans from companies being targeted in the complaint. But a study from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation estimates about 23,000 uninsured people in the U.S. being treated for HIV and AIDS would be eligible for coverage through the online exchange.By KELLI KENNEDYAssociated PressINSURANCE Saturday, May 31, 2014 5A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com JUNETax TalkFactsTag TalkFROMTHE TAX COLLECTOR First Installment Tax Notices for 2014 were mailed out.

City: No to releasing permitsThe Marathon City Council on Tuesday balked at the idea of granting 19 coveted market-rate housing permits to the developers of a proposed 106-unit moderateincome rental community near mile marker 50.5.The board agreed the socalled Tarpon Harbour complex would be a much-needed addition to the Middle Keys housing stock and voted 4-0 to grant Palm Beach Gardens-based Eastwind Development a conditionaluse permit and development agreement. Councilman John Bartus was absent.The council also went along with Eastwind President Jack Weirs request for 43 affordable-housing building-permit allocations since the city has a pool of more than 80 available. But it appears Weir will have to find the market-rate permit allocations on his own. In the Keys, the state limits each municipality in the number of permits that can be issued. As proposed, 62 units at Tarpon Harbour (31 duplexes) would be designated moderate affordable income housing, while the remaining 44 units (22 duplexes) would be marketrate. The expectation would be $2,000 per month rent for two-bedroom units. We are working to identify the availability, price and contract terms for the purchase of [market-rate] allocations that can be utilized in the city of Marathon, and we expect to report back to the City Council on the results of this search at its next meeting on June 10. Our analysis and the City Councils response to our analysis at that time will determine our next course of action, Weir wrote in an e-mail to the Keynoter. Weir said Eastwind has closed on the property, at the site of the former Aloha Trailer Park on the oceanside of U.S. 1. The 12.86-acre parcel would consist of 53 twoand three-bedroom, 2.5bath duplexes. Eastwind Development is unrelated to the low-income Eastwind Apartments housing complex on Sombrero Beach Road. Tarpon Harbour is a unique premise in that it would be a privately financed development using a mixture of affordable and market-rate rental units on the same site. The target household income for prospective renters would be from $60,000 per year to $100,000 per year.The way we make our numbers work is to have the market-rate units subsidize the workforce housing units, Weir told the council, noting that rents would be higher on the market-rate houses.Mayor Dick Ramsay and Councilman Mark Senmartin opposed parting with the market-rate permit allocations, arguing that local families could lose out on a chance to build a house. Senmartin recalled his own issues with the citys permit allocation system when building his home. The system allows the city to distribute as many as 24 marketrate and six affordable-housing allocations each year.I had gone through years of not being able to build a house. We couldnt get an allocation because at the time the developers were buying them up left and right, he said.Senmartin was referring to developers or wealthy individuals purchasing vacant lots and donating them to the city to gain extra points on their permit applications. The result was a higher place on the citys allocation ranking list.

Biscayne National Park managers said the final environmental impact statement for the fishery management plan covering the 270square-mile park north of Key Largo aims to improve fishery resource conditions, increase abundance and size of fish commonly targeted by anglers, and provide better fishing experiences for future generations.No new regulations have been put forth but future Biscayne rules will be guided by the new fishery plan combined with the parks updated general management plan, park fisheries biologist Vanessa McDonough said Friday.Well be working with the state [Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission] to determine exactly what regulatory changes are needed, McDonough said. Biscayne is a bit more complicated because of the way the park was created, with state and federal lands involved.Proposals in the preferredalternative plan could end diving for lobster during mini-season in late July in Biscayne waters (lobster diving would be allowed during regular season), increase the legal size of some fish species, create a no-trawl area, and limit spearfishing to free-diving while using pole spears or slings. The fishery plan does not mention a proposed special recreation zone, a suggested area where the number of boaters could be limited. However, a no-take area eventually could be included in the general management plan, which is still under development. The National Parks Conservation Association endorsed the fishery plan but said a marine reserve is necessary to to fully protect all of the spectacular underwater resources that Biscayne National Park has to offer. The fishery plan does propose to halt the issuing of any new commercial-fishing permits in Biscayne park, and make existing permits nontransferable so commercial fishing can be phased out. The marine recreation industry is of high commercial importance to the local economy, says the plan. In the case of fishing, the primary economic attribute is fishing, not fish. It later says, The falling number of licensed vessels operating within [MiamiDade County], and the limited and partially seasonal employment levels, [make] the commercial fishing industry within the Biscayne Bay area ... of relatively limited regional economic importance.BISCAYNE NATIONAL PARK MARATHONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgPhoto courtesy NATIONAL PARK SERVICEA nurse shark glides through a coral reef at Biscayne National Park, north of Key Largo.

Story, 3BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Stylish uniforms is there such a thing?Uniforms have been a facet of the work environment for decades. The purpose of uniforms is to serve as corporate branding and to project competence in the employees. Its common for uniforms at least informal ones to be seen in service industries such as banks, hospitals and hospitality. However, even though many work environments have become more lax about uniforms, the airline industry has always maintained this requisite. At Miami Fashion Week earlier this month, the iconic Eastern Air Lines which went out of business in 1991 65 years after its founding but has been reborn this year was the title sponsor. They initiated a competition to design their flight attendant uniforms with the forthcoming relaunch of the airline. The competition included five Miami-based designers who presented their collections to the sound of Frank Sinatras Fly Me to the Moon.Julian Chang, Lisu Vega, Kayce Arm strong, Samy Gicherman and Viviana Gabeiras were the five finalists who presented their collections. They conveyed a variety of looks incorporating the brands logo and colors. The collections ranged from vintage-inspired looks and athletic movable designs to outfits with tropical flair and designs resembling something more appropriate for an astronaut.Vega, the winning designer, introduced a collection of flight attendant uniforms featuring cobalt suits, zippered blazers with matching skirts and classic dresses. She added logo printed suitcases to the models ensemble that perfectly complemented the flight attendant theme. The concept of a stylish uniform is somewhat of an oxymoron. Uniforms essentially suppress individuality while style is conveyed through individuality in how an outfit is worn and accessorized. Yet famous designers have long been drawn to uniforms.Emilio Pucci, Giorgio Armani and Vivienne Westwood are among the elite who have designed uniforms for flight attendants. Although uniforms are meant to make everyone look alike, each individualsYou can lend personality to mandateCONCH STYLE This is the winning uniform by Lisu Vega.Leah Maki ConchStyle VISITING HISTORY Photo courtesy SANDI BISCEGLIAFifth-graders in Sandi Bisceglias class at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon visit the historic home of Sue Moore on Tuesday. The kids wrote a book about Moore, Marathons first school teacher, when they were in second grade. The house, built in 1905 in Key West and taken to Marathon on a barge, is on 95th Street after being moved from the Marathon Boat Yard, where it had been stored since 2009. It originally was at 2109 Overseas Highway, across from the U.S. Coast Guard station. The house was made with Dade County pine and is about 800 square feet. Moore taught in Marathon from 1931 to 1935.See Style, 2BFish with former UM grid starsMore than 100 boats are expected to participate in the fourth annual University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame Celebrity Dolphin Fishing Tournament, set for June 27 and 28 in Islamorada.

And for those of us who enjoy whiskey in any of its iterations rye, bourbon and scotch, among others, are all close relatives of the whiskey family it has triggered a sometimes overwhelming wealth of choice when shopping. The fun part is selecting among these new offerings, finding those delicious gems that will become regular fixtures in your liquor cabinet. The not-so-fun part? You inevitably will stumble upon some losers. But when you do, it would be a shame to pour a bottle down the drain. The good news is you dont need to. Whiskey happens to work rather well in cooking, particularly in sauces for meats and roasted vegetables. So when we recently came across two bottles an allcorn whiskey from Texas and an overtly peaty Scotch Whisky I took to the kitchen to rescue them. Though we call for specific styles of whiskeys in these recipes, the truth is you can use whatever you have (and presumably dont want for drinking). Also, if you happen to prefer baking to barbecue, another way to use up a soso whiskey is to soak raisins or dried apricots in it for a few days. Once the fruit is plumped, drain off any remaining whiskey (and use it for a cocktail!). Bake the raisins or apricots (chop the latter) into your favorite blondie or oatmeal cookie recipe. This sauce also would be delicious on grilled meats, such as flank steak or baby back ribs. What you need for smokey scotch-date barbecue roasted potatoes:Half a cup chopped dates.Two cloves garlic.One tablespoon minced fresh rosemary.Quarter cup Scotch Whisky (a particularly peaty variety is good).Half a teaspoon kosher salt.Half a teaspoon ground black pepper.Quarter cup balsamic vinegar.Two tablespoons melted butter.Two pounds small potatoes, quartered.Two tablespoons chop ped fresh mint.Three scallions, thinly sliced.Quarter cup crumbled blue cheese. Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat it with cooking spray. In a blender, combine the dates, garlic, rosemary, whiskey, salt, pepper, vinegar and melted butter. Puree until completely smooth.In a large bowl, combine the sauce and potatoes and mix until completely coated. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake until browned and tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with the mint, scallions, and blue cheese.Start to finish: 40 minutes (15 minutes active).By J.M.
