Autopsy unclear on baby deathThe cause of death of a Stock Island infant who died while sleeping with his mother in April is undetermined, according to the final autopsy report from the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office. However, the report, made final this week, notes that in his short lifetime, 10month-old Carter James Turcano suffered several medical problems. Carter died the morning of April 24 as he slept on a double recliner at his and his mothers home at Roys Trailer Park at 6500 Maloney Ave. The mother, Marcia Hake, 27, reportedly awoke around 6:50 a.m. to find him unconscious, and he was later pronounced dead at Lower Keys Medical Center. The death came on the heels of a Miami Herald series, Innocents Lost, which detailed the deaths of 477 children in Florida whose families had been the subject of investigations by the state Department of Children and Families. The series uncovered widespread lack of controls and incompetence at DCF, and resulted in legislation by state lawmakers this year to spend more money on child protection services and overhaul policies and procedures. DCF had investigated Hake two months before Carter died after receiving reports she was spending her money on illegal drugs, leaving the child hungry. Agency lawyers reportedly were in the process of asking a judge to oversee the family.

Story, 4AExperts warn Keys in eye of sea-level riseIf sea-level rise in the Florida Keys continues as many scientists expect, neighborhoods could turn into a version of Stiltsville within a half-century. That was a scenario sketched out by an environmental scientist and a sustainability expert at a Monroe County Commission update Wednesday on the local response to climate change. High waters that drenched the Keys during Hurricane Wilma in October 2005 could become an expected part of island living by 2060, Jason Evans, assistant professor of Environmental Science and Studies at Stetson University, said at the Key Largo session.If the sea level increases by 24 inches the higher range of predictions high spring and fall tides essentially would replicate Wilmas flooding.This is something that is alarming, Evans told commissioners. Evans, who used the Keys as a sea-level case study for his students, described potential effects on the island environment, habitat and residents in 2030 and 2060, depending on how high the ocean goes.The Florida Keys rank third among East Coast communities at risk of possible population displacement because of higher seas that swallow land, said Erin Deady, a Palm Beach County attorney and land planner who focuses on sustainability.Other than the Keys, all other top-five communities on that list lie along North Carolinas Atlantic Ocean shore. Its about making lifestyle choices, Deady said, showing a slide of an old Stiltsville house elevated on pilings off Miami. This was a lifestyle choice for some. Stiltsville is just that former homes sitting on stilts in Biscayne Bay accessible only by boat. A Key West tidal gaugeMonroe County said to be in Top 5 in dangerCLIMATE CHANGEBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Four years later, killer still at largeFour years ago this coming Friday, someone walked into the Islamorada apartment of Henry Allwardt and fired several bullets into the 70-yearold security guard.The 2010 homicide remains unsolved but the case remains open.At this point, there really are no new developments, Deputy Becky Herrin, information officer for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, said Thursday.Earlier this year, Sheriffs Office detectives returned to the Pirates Lair Road neighborhood, off mile marker 82.5, to speak with residents who live nearby. Somebody might have remembered or heard something they wanted to pass along, Herrin said. There were no new results, but you just keep trying. Given the relatively secluded nature of the area, Major Crimes Unit detectives believe Allwardt likely knew his killer.A person of interest was identified soon after Allwardts body was discovered Sept. 12, 2010. However, no physical or eyewitness evidence yet has linked that person to the crime.Thats been the case since the beginning, Herrin said. No new information has changed that status.Elderly man shot to death in his homeCRIME FRONTDeadlines Tuesday to fill judicial slotGov. Rick Scotts deadline for appointing a replacement for Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin, who resigned in the spring, is Tuesday. Whether Scott, in the middle of a re-election campaign and not known for being speedy when making gubernatorial appointments, will meet the four-month deadline isnt known, nor are the repercussions. But its clear theres a need to get the position filled, since the Keys are supposed to have four Circuit Court judges. The Keys are down two basically two, with Audlins vacancy since May and Tegan Slaton, a Family Court judge, on indefinite medical leave. Thats caused other judges to have to pick up the slack and the return of a retired judge to hear foreclosure and other civil cases. The finalists are:Tim Koenig, 54, of Key West, managing partner of the Keonig, Highsmith and Van Loon law firm. Koenig, married with three children, graduated from Florida State Universitys law school.Manny Madruga, 48, of Key West, chief assistant Monroe County state attorney.

Big Pine Key really turns into two keys, he said. Habitats needed by Key deer and other endangered species likely would fall victim to saltwater intrusion, he said. Most of Monroe Countys existing utilities and wastewater plants are well-sited to minimize the effect of higher seas, he said. Roads are the canary in the coal mine, he said, pointing to problems in the Lower Keys and along very vulnerable Sea Oats Beach on Lower Matecumbe Key. Raising roads is expensive and requires a wider road base that can intrude onto private property, Evans said. A hurricane would pile add several feet of surge onto higher seas, Com missioner George Neugent offered. In places, thats game over. Hurricanes are not speculative; theyre going to happen. The Wednesday update was given as part of the ongoing GreenKeys Sustainability Action Plan that will be considered next year. The Keys are also part of a compact with Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties thats addressing climate change regionally.A day-long open event, Monroe County Sea-Level Rise Legal and Planning Workshop, will be held 9 a.m. Friday at the Marathon Government Center.Keys are called very vulnerableFrom Sea level, 1A Customs work about to start in MarathonRenovations to bring a U.S. Customs and Border Protection office to Florida Keys Marathon Airport are set to start in the next 30 to 60 days. The construction at the airfields terminal is the first step in having a Customs agent at the airport and making it an official port of entry for travelers entering the U.S. in the Keys. It could open in spring 2015.Marathon will be the airport most convenient for many aircrafts that are coming from the Bahamas, Cayman Islands and South America, said Bill Ehrhorn, owner of the Marathon Jet Center, which provides services to private pilots. We should be clearing the first aircraft in February or March if everything gets done on time.Bringing a Customs office to the airport wont be cheap. Big Pine Key contractor Pedro Falcon Electrical Contractors is doing the renovation under a Monroe County contract for $1,091,403. To meet U.S. Department of Homeland Security requirements, the Customs portion of the terminal must be bombproof, including the windows. Having one full-time Customs agent in Marathon is projected to cost $150,000 annually, with the cost picked up through user fees. Marathon Mayor Dick Ramsay believes the Customs office will expand tourism-related business in Marathon. He cited a 2012 study by University of Miami Professor Manuel Santos, chairman of UMs Depart ment Of Economics. His study concludes the port of entry could generate $38.7 million in trickle-down revenue for the Middle Keys, increase overall household values by $9.6 million and contribute to 346.5 permanent jobs. The report points to very dramatic results, showing an increase in jobs and household incomes, said Ramsay, who has been working on the project with Monroe County Commissioner Dave Rice the past five years. The funding [for construction of the Customs office] is coming out of airport funds and no ad valorem taxes. Taxpayers will not see any increases to their taxes. Ray Schaub, an economist at the Bureau of Economic and Business Research at the University of Florida, read Santos report and disagreed with some of the estimates, telling the Keynoter in 2012 that the final demand for the service at the airport could change, lowering the economic impact. Marathon Airport Director Don DeGraw said the airport, a general aviation field with no commercial carriers, has about 120,000 travelers annually. Key West International Airport has about 800,000 passengers annually and hosts major airlines such as Delta, American and U.S. Ramsay envisions eventually having commercial flights at Marathon although county Airports Director Peter Horton has said thats not happening. It opens up a very big window to getting commercial service back to Marathon, Ramsay said. Boaters coming into Marathon from international waters will be able to check in using the airport Customs agent. Ramsay said law enforcement would watch boats at private and commercial docks until the agent arrives from the airport.DeGraw and Ramsay said theyve heard that the pending position has drawn interest from many Customs agents.Word is out in the Customs community. Its going to be a very popular assignment, DeGraw said.Port of entry could be open by next springBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS Keynoter photo by WILLIAM AXFORDThis is where the Customs office will be. This area of the terminal used to house ticket counters for commercial flights, which are now but a memory at Marathon.County budget hearings nearTo sharply reduce property taxes throughout the Florida Keys, Monroe County could add another penny to the local sales tax to pay for rescue services. That concept surfaced at Wednesdays County Commission hearing in Key Largo on a proposed budget after a Tavernier resident protested the fire and ambulance taxes on his property tax bill.Its brutal, agreed County Commissioner George Neugent. Marathon and Islamorada run their whole cities [including rescue services] for less than we charge for fire and ambulance.County Administrator Roman Gastesi noted Florida law allows adding a 1 percent surcharge to the local sales tax to pay for fire and rescue costs. It would pay the fire tax for everybody including municipalities, Gastesi said. That [property-tax cost] would go away. But increasing the local sales tax now at 7.5 percent for purchases and an additional 5 percent paid by people staying in Keys lodgings would require approval in a countywide referendum. A referendum question asking whether there should be a separate emergency services surtax apparently could not be put on the local ballot until the November 2016 presidential election. A 1-cent hike in the salestax rate could raise nearly $25 million for countywide services, Gastesi said. Visitors could help pay for fire and ambulance services that also respond to medical calls and accidents involving vacationers, he said. One penny would cover it, Gastesi said. I think it would be a no-brainer if explained properly. Resorts and other businesses may oppose a new sales tax that would raise the cost of local stays purchases, he noted. In 2013, residents in unincorporated areas (excluding most of Key Largo) paid 2.48 mills in property taxes for fire-rescue, or $248 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value. That accounts for about two-thirds of the property tax by the County Commission, Gastesi said. Tavernier resident George Scott protested that a lot of the fire and ambulance tax he pays goes to fund Lower Keys rescue agencies. Fort Lauderdale is closer [to Tavernier] than the Lower Keys, Scott said. Monroe County taxes for rescue services have increased over the years to pay for professional responders. Most Keys volunteer departments no longer have enough certified members to provide adequate coverage, commissioners said. Marathon and Islamorada have more commercial properties and denser residential areas, meaning the cities have more property-tax revenue to cover smaller areas.Key Largo north of mile marker 95 has its own fire and ambulance taxing district since the area still has a larger corps of volunteers available.In other budget discussions, commissioners approved a slightly reduced tax rate to take into Sept. 8 and 11 public hearings after staff trimmed about $190,000 from needed ad valorem revenue. The board approved a tentative fiscal year 2015 aggregate millage of 3.94 mills, or 2.75-percent above the rollback rate, the rate needed next year to raise the same amount of revenue this year.Robby Majeska, a Key Largo business owner and a member of the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board, said in public comment that county taxes are a big part of making Monroe County unaffordable.The proposed budget of $441 million, with $79.6 million funded by property taxes, is a staff wish-list, not a constituents wishlist, Majeska said. Commissioners will hold a budget meeting with public comment at 5:05 p.m. Monday at the Marathon Government Center, and a final hearing at 5:05 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.Some say fire and ambulance tax too highCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comThe day-long open event will be held 9 a.m. Friday at the MarathonGovernment Center.
Allwardts body was discovered around 6:20 p.m. Sept. 12, 2010, by his supervisor at The Moorings resort, where he worked.The supervisor became worried that Allwardt did not show up for his shift and did not call in. Fearful that Allwardt suffered an attack from his diabetes, she went to his home and found his body.A detective answering the supervisors call described Allwardt as lying on the floor parallel to his bed, between a small table and the bed.He died of died of multiple gunshot wounds, the Sheriffs Office reported. The type of weapon used has not been identified publicly. No one reported hearing or seeing anything suspicious, Herrin said. Neighbors last saw Allwardt, who lived in a small caretakers apartment at the waterfront residence, around noon on Sept. 11. His 2003 silver Honda sedan was parked outside when deputies arrived. Allwardt emigrated from Germany about 25 years ago. He previously worked at other Upper Keys resorts. Environmentalists, recreational fishermen and people who make their living on the Gulf of Mexico are hailing a federal judges ruling that could mean $18 billion in additional fines for BP over the nations worst offshore oil spill. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier ruled Thursday that BP acted with gross negligence in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico disaster. Under the federal Clean Water Act, a polluter can be forced to pay a maximum of $1,100 in civil fines per barrel of spilled oil, or up to $4,300 per barrel if the company is found grossly negligent. Barbiers finding exposes BP to the muchhigher amount. The April 2012 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the gulf killed 11 men and resulted in massive amounts of crude staining several states shores and killing off wildlife. Although Deepwater Horizon oil apparently never reached Florida Keys waters, the threat of the massive spill caused significant harm to the local summer tourism economy as visitors canceled resort and fishing trips. More than two dozen governments, organizations and companies submitted requests for a combined $67.5 million from Monroe Countys share of the overall BP Deepwater Horizon oilspill settlement.Estimates of Monroe Countys share, once the settlement from BP is banked, range from $5 million to $23 million.Even as the oil giant vowed to appeal, BP stock fell $2.82, or nearly 6 percent, to $44.89, reducing the companys market value by almost $9 billion.BP previously agreed to pay a record $4 billion in criminal fines and penalties over the Deepwater Horizon disaster, plus more than $27 billion in cleanup costs and compensation to people and businesses harmed by the spill.The company made $24 billion in profits last year but could be forced again to sell off some assets to cover the additional fines, analysts said.U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Barbiers ruling will ensure that the company is held fully accountable for its recklessness and will serve as a strong deterrent to anyone tempted to sacrifice safety and the environment in the pursuit of profit. Barbier held a nonjury trial last year to identify the blowouts causes and apportion blame for the disaster. He ruled Thursday that BP bears 67 percent of the responsibility; Swiss-based drilling rig owner Transocean Ltd. 30 percent; and Houston-based cement contractor Halliburton Energy Services 3 percent. BP made profit-driven decisions during the drilling that led to the blowout, the judge concluded in his 153page ruling. These instances of negligence, taken together, evince an extreme deviation from the standard of care and a conscious disregard of known risks, he wrote. Among other things, the judge cited a misinterpreted safety test that should have warned the drilling crew that the well was in danger of blowing out. In a statement, BP said the evidence did not meet the very high bar to prove gross negligence.Government experts estimated 4.2 million barrels, or 176 million gallons, spilled into the Gulf. BP urged the judge to use an estimate of 2.45 million barrels, or nearly 103 million gallons, in calculating any Clean Water Act penalties. Barbier hasnt ruled yet on how much oil spilled.If he goes with the governments estimate, BP could be hit with close to $18 billion in fines. BP ultimately sealed the well after several methods failed.BP pleaded guilty in 2013 to manslaughter in the rig workers deaths. Two BP supervisors who were aboard the rig are awaiting trial on federal manslaughter charges.BP faces still another set of potential penalties under the federal Oil Pollution Act of 1990. Those claims could cost BP more than $10 billion.Keynoter staff supplemented this report.

When police investigated, they found her with several Xanax pills, so she was also charged with felony possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.She entered Drug Court in June as part of pretrial diversion, Chief Assistant State Attorney Manny Madruga said Friday. The fact that Dr. E. Hunt Scheuerman, who was Monroe Countys medical examiner when Carter died, found Carters death undetermined likely means no one will be charged in the infants death. Scheuerman has since resigned to teach in Tennessee, but he continued with the case because Carter died when he was the coroner. Dr. Thomas Beaver has since taken his place and is serving in an interim capacity, awaiting appointment from Gov. Rick Scott. Sheuermans report, which Beaver received this week, says Carter was born four weeks premature and for that gestational age he was below the three percentile for weight, which caused Carters doctor to diagnose intrauterine growth retardation. Scheuerman wrote that Carter remained at that level throughout his life (doctors visits) and at death. Six months before he died, Carter was noted to be developmentally delayed and to have poor muscle tone. He was referred to a pediatric neurologist but never saw this specialist. Scheuerman also notes that Carter had not had any immunizations during his life. Scheuerman wrote that Hake said she was on the recliner with the infant but filled a wedge between the recliners back and seat. He wrote when questioned, her responses did not rule out overlaying, or her rolling over on him. Therefore, he concluded, while his death could have been overlaying, it could have been due to some unforeseen (by the unaided eye or microscope) neurological problem. In my opinion, the case is best certified as undetermined cause of death and therefore undetermined manner of death.Mom was arrested on drug chargeFrom Report, 1ALittle new info is availableFrom Allwardt, 1AMonroe County Judge Miller, 61, of Key West, a Monroe County Court judge since 1989.

Ernesto Herrada-Cordova, 25, is charged with attempted murder with a deadly weapon. According to WSVN-TV in Miami, Herrada-Cordova is accused of stabbing two women in Hialeah Wednesday near Palm Avenue and 31st Street. The women reportedly drove themselves to a hospital while Herrada-Cordova fled to the Keys. Their conditions, and their relationship to the suspect, werent known at press time Friday. HerradaCordova was caught in an engine compartment of a boat near Geiger Key around mile marker 11 around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says he was planning to flee to Cuba but was caught after the agency received a tip about his whereabouts. Deputy Becky Herrin said her agency was warned to be on the lookout for Herrada-Cordova Thursday and that information indicated he was very aggressive and dangerous. When found by the Sheriffs Office with help from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, he was turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service.Hialeah man charged with attempted murderCRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff HERRADA-CORDOVA New kind of theft: Tailgates of truckWhen thieves target the Upper Keys in crime waves, generally they take the lower units boat of engines, where the gears and prop are. Now, detectives with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office say, thieves have been targeting not boat engines but truck tailgates, basically the back door to a trucks bed. The Upper Keys have been hit especially hard. Two tailgates were reported stolen between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, one by the owner of a 2008 Ford F150 that was parked at a house on Marina Avenue in Key Largo; the other by the owner of a 2012 Ford pickup parked on Bass Avenue, also in Key Largo. Last week, two Islamorada residents reported their tailgates stolen. There were two reported stolen in the Lower Keys earlier in the year and two reported stolen in Marathon in February. The Sheriffs Office said it can take just seconds for someone to take a tailgate. The solution to avoiding that is easy: Lock your tailgate when you arent using the back of the truck. Also, park in a locked garage or, when you park, back up to a wall or building to limit access to the tailgate.CRIME FRONT Keys InfoNet.com
The Florida Keys Mosquito Control Districts proposed budget for fiscal year 2014-15 remains largely unchanged as the district has two public hearings planned for the spending plan.District Director Michael Doyle said the proposed tax rate for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1 is .48 mills, down from the current .51. For a $300,000 house, a homeowner would pay $144 in property taxes to fund mosquito-fighting operations.Mosquito Control projects a $12.2 million operating budget and collecting $9.7 million in property taxes. The district will tap into its $4.7 million reserve to make up for the $2.5 million for the proposed budget. That funding will be needed for a new building on Big Coppitt Key since the districts lease for its Stock Island location wont be renewed by the city of Key West. Financial Director Bruce Holden said the property for the new building will cost $750,000 and the building itself will cost $2.5 million. Bids are expected to go out in spring 2015 and the building is anticipated to be finished in spring 2016. Doyle said the 2014-15 budget will include a new $180,000 computer system, $150,000 in helicopter targeting software and another $180,000 for handheld devices and software for workers in the field.The helicopter software will feature GPS and GIS mapping capabilities, allowing pilots to pinpoint marshes and other areas where mosquitoes are breeding. The technology will coordinate with wind speeds and directions, allowing for more accuracy.The handheld devices will include mapping software for inspectors to call in airstrikes, Doyle said. Right now were using paper maps, Vietnam-era technology. This is bringing us up to the 21st century. The final public hearings are scheduled for 5:05 p.m. Wednesday at 5224 College Road, Stock Island; and 5:05 p.m. Sept. 17 at 100701 Overseas Highway, Key Largo. One of the Upper Keys most iconic establishments sold this week. Gilberts Resort and Restaurant, situated where U.S. 1 meets Key Largo at the southern end of the 18Mile Stretch of U.S. 1, was bought for $11.2 million by Jonathan Weisberg, owner Gator Park Airboat Tours in southwest Miami-Dade County in the Everglades. Weisberg plans to spend about $1 million to renovate the 38 hotel rooms at Gilberts and to add amenities, including a swimming pool and sandy beach, said A. Michelle Ash, owner of Simply Marinas Marine Real Estate & Development, which was the selling agent on the transaction. Ash said Weisberg researched Gilberts for about a year before deciding to buy the resort.The listing agent on the deal was Monika Sunstrom, who is with the Palm Beach real estate agency Engel and Volkers.Gilberts former owners, Reinhard and Karina Schaupp, bought the fouracre bayfront restaurant, bar and motel in the mid-1990s for $2.6 million. They essentially sold it to themselves in 2006 for $5.9 million when they changed their company from a corporation to a limited liability company. The Schaupps put Gilberts on the market in April 2011 for $16 million. At the time, Reinhard Schaupp said business was great, but he and his wife wanted to see what kinds of offers they could get. They also said they eventually wanted to sell because none of their three adult children wanted to carry on the business once their parents retired. Three years earlier, the Schaupps had grand plans for their resort, which sits below the Jewfish Creek Bridge. They envisioned an upscale fractional ownership resort called Karina Bay Resort & Marina, where unit owners would have access to a fleet of aircraft and 10 boats during their stay. Guests would also have concierge service that would supply whatever else they needed, including a stocked fridge and a car in the driveway. The plan was to also sell the resorts 38 boat slips for about $275,000 each. But like so many other planned real estate projects dreamt up during the 2000s bubble, Karina Bay fell victim to the recession.New part of U.S. 1 now needs new workRoughly two miles of the northbound trip from Tavernier to Key Largo has been noticeably bumpy ever since the state Department of Transportation repaved that part of U.S. 1 earlier this year.Fixing the problem means the contractor, General Asphalt, will have to repave the two northbound lanes from mile marker 93 to mile marker 95. That will add about $300,000 to the $6.95 million resurfacing project from mile marker 91 to mile marker 97, northbound and southbound, which began in January.Felix Rodriguez, DOTs interim project manager, said the problem is the old asphalt disintegrated when the contractor milled the road. Milling means cutting grooves into the old layer of asphalt to make a new layer to adhere better.The disintegrated asphalt made voids in the road, which have been giving cars shock absorbers a workout recently.Starting Sept. 14, General Asphalt will begin digging up the road again. In the voids, the contractor will pour half an inch of concrete. An inch of structural asphalt will be poured over the entire road, Rodriguez said.He said DOT anticipates the project to take about three weeks. The rest of the original repaving project is scheduled to be done in about six weeks.Rodriguez said General Asphalt is one of the premiere contractors in South Florida, and that the problem was the original layer of asphalt, not work performed by the company. Theyre the ones that really want to ensure that whatever fix we come up with lasts, Rodriguez said. This was not the result of poor workmanship.Digging up and repaving the road means there will be intermittent lane closures, but all the work will be done at night.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYS Saturday, September 6, 2014 5A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Island Vision Careis now accepting NEW patients.Dr.John Sheldon's optometry practice services all ages,from kids to seniors.Monday Friday 9AM to 5PM Saturday by appointment6400 Overseas Hwy.

Companies used them to connect calls by manually plugging jacks into a board to connect callers. Callers had to have an operators help to get to the person he or she was calling. Today, the only operators were familiar with are the ones who put you on hold forever if you call a company to complain about something.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALJournalists death must go punishedLETTERS TO THE EDITORWe can fix housingI would like to thank state Rep. Holly Raschein of Key Largo for holding the recent workforce housing summit at the Marathon Government Center.To those folks that said nothing can be done or we have done nothing in the past, I want to point out that in the eight years leading up to the great recession, we as a Keyswide community focused on workforce housing and built 1,000 units of mostly in-perpetuity rent controlled workforce housing throughout the Keys. During the recession we added another 170 units of lowand very-low-income housing. This is a problem that can be solved and must be solved if we are to provide decent homes and apartment opportunities for our workforce and keep our economy strong and our communities viable. To not address this is not an option. To ignore this situation is guaranteeing social bankruptcy and failing communities.We have the answers and a clear path to solving this problem. Its not rocket science. There just needs to be community consensus and political will. Those who need the housing personally cant provide it. Only business owners, elected officials, housing advocates, housing authorities and risk takers can do this.By working together and continuing to focus relentlessly on the problem and supporting the obvious solutions, we will succeed. For 34 years I have been involved in trying to see to it that this overriding problem is addressed and I assure you we can do it.Thank you again to Holly for her leadership in providing a platform for another new beginning. Let us all go to work.Ed Swift III Key WestArchbishops wrongIn Miami Catholic Diocese Archbishop Thomas G. Wenskis letter about same-sex marriage, his closing argument is that to impose same-sex marriage would open up a Pandoras box of unintended consequences that bode ill for the advancement of the common good and human flourishing in all of society.I believe organized religion, in collusion with those playing the monopoly (materialistic) game, have kept Pandoras box open (for business) for more than 2,000 years. The true nature of a two in one flesh union is best described by Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas: When you make the two one, and when you make the inner as the outer and the outer as the inner, and when you make the male and the female into a single one so that the male will not be male and the female not be female, then shall you enter the Kingdom.Jesus was trying to teach us the cosmic game. Its beginnings are very simple: Love your neighbor as yourself. Ron Cole IslamoradaEvil can be beatBecause I lean toward being a peacemaker, I prefer not choosing sides. The traumas and tragedies of daily current events seem to be pushing mankind to ever-increasing fragmentation rather than unity. Hamas stores weapons in United Nations buildings and breaks every cease-fire agreement with Israel thus far. Israel retaliates with defensive weapons and ends up killing civilians placed as human shields by Hamas. Michael Brown, shot by police in Ferguson, Mo., is being portrayed as a victim of racial tension and spoken of as a gentle giant. What about the shop keepers video seen on Youtube? It shows Michael abusively pushing the shop keeper away as he and his companions leave the store with stolen merchandise. I cant speak for that policemans conduct, but what about the crime of thievery and preying on those weaker? The U.S. Constitution says nothing about marriage, but does guarantee states rights. So why is the Supreme Court getting mixed up in a cultural debate instead of defending the constitutional right of each state governing their civil matters? Muslim clerics in the Mideast are heard on public broadcasts urging Muslims to kill Jews, Christians, Communists and Americans. U.S. journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff are beheaded by the Islamic State publicly, persecution of Jews in Europe and the U.S. is becoming more prevalent and Christians all over the Mideast are being raped, sold as sex slaves, driven from their homes and countries, and murdered. The world watches, almost as if numb and paralyzed. This is not close enough to the sleepy, sultry Florida Keys to be too concerned. The world is becoming smaller and in my opinion, evil is marching forward with a defined strategy to wipe out good. It wants to steal, kill and destroy. History tells us that good overcomes evil; the darkness is overcome by light. As concerned global citizens, I pray that our eyes, ears and hearts will see and understand what is truly good and what is truly evil, and that we have courage to stand against evil. Your prayers, your votes in the coming months, and your determination to know the truth and speak out could determine the outcome of good vs. evil. Perhaps together we could get the best of evil by doing good. Bonnie Young Key LargoThe most horrifying aspect of the execution of South Florida freelance journalist Steven Sotloff is the utter inhumanity of it a gruesome beheading captured on video for maximum exposure. Also chilling is the cold-blooded and brutal nature of this sadistic outrage, the taking of a human life as a public spectacle, for show and to make a political point. The first reaction is horror because of the sheer cruelty of this act, aimed at inflicting maximum pain on both the victim and the audience, followed closely by grief. Neither the outrage over the killing nor the terrifying nature of the crime should blind anyone to the underlying issues, nor should they wrongly influence the response. The executioner, a masked coward, calmly declared that the killing was a reprisal for the bombing campaign carried out by the United States against the Islamic State in Syria. Message: The more you bomb, the more Americans we will kill. The United States cannot comply with this sort of blackmail. No country can allow a terrorist group to control its foreign policy. Similarly, outrage, however well justified it may be, cannot be allowed to guide American policy. The armchair generals urging an immediate American response should be mindful of the warning of the real generals, who have declared, as the president himself has said, that dealing effectively with the IS wont be easy. The best response is a coordinated Western response led by the United States that includes American allies in Europe and elsewhere. Obama must lead, but devising a hasty strategy in response to public pressure or domestic politics will almost surely be found wanting. There is another realm of action that also requires coordinated policies with European nations, however, and that is the response to kidnapping and blackmail. The threat posed by the IS and other terrorist groups can best be countered by a unified response. European governments have been much more willing than the United States to give in to ransom demands for their citizens. According to an exhaustive report by The New York Times earlier this summer, terrorist groups such as al Qaida have received more than $100 million in revenue since 2008 in response to ransom demands, mainly from European governments. That provides an incentive for terrorists to kidnap foreigners. It also puts Americans at risk, both as an object lesson to other governments for what happens if they dont comply and as a way to pressure this country to follow the European model. As the deaths of Sotloff and journalist James Foley show, the divergent U.S. and European responses are failing. As long as some countries pay and some dont, everyone is vulnerable. If a new and desperately needed unified response by Western countries emerges from their deaths, it could finally start to blunt IS push across the Mideast.

Cops wants help finding abuserMonroe County Sheriffs Office detectives are asking the public to help them find whoever beat, duct-taped and shot a female pit bull terrier in July.The dog was found on July 22 by Key Largo resident Daniel Rossler, 52, who freed the animal after finding her abandoned and stuffed in a bag along Gun Club Road, on the ocean side of U.S. 1 around mile marker 101.5. Rossler removed the duct tape from around the dogs neck and snout. He said the dog showed absolutely no signs of aggression once freed. In fact, she stayed by his side while he waited for animal control to arrive.Rossler drove the dog to the nearby Florida Keys Shooting Club, where a member called both the Sheriffs Office and the Humane Animal Care Coalition, the countys animal control agency in the Upper Keys, the clubs president John Sutter said.Marsha Garrettson, head of the Animal Care Coalition, said it looks like the dog was shot in the back of the head. She was unable to extend her tongue all the way out of her mouth because of jaw injuries, and she was missing her canine teeth. The duct tape was fashioned around the dogs neck in a way that would eventually asphyxiate her.Nevertheless, she never seemed to have lost her desire for human affection. She was wagging her tail when she was with us, even after suffering through all that abuse, Garrettson said. But the dog was also suffering from internal bleeding. She was so badly injured that Garrettsons veterinarians at the Key Largo Animal Shelter determined she had to be euthanized on July 23. Garrettson theorizes the dog was used in some capacity in the illegal dog-fighting trade in Miami-Dade County, either as a breeder or as a bait dog a dog used for practice by dog-fighting pit bulls. The Sheriffs Office wants to bring whoever did this to justice. Someone has to know this dog and know who the owner of the dog is, Sheriff Rick Ramsay said. If you know, come forward. This is a horrendous case of animal cruelty and we want to find out who did this and bring them to justice.Anyone who thinks he or she knows anything about the dog, what happened to it, who the owner was or anything that might help solve the case should contact the Sheriffs Office at (305) 853-3211, said agency spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin. Callers may also contact Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys. Tipsters can remain anonymous and, if a tip leads to an arrest in the case, the caller would be eligible for a cash reward.

The company also said Wednesday that its working with leading security firms Symantec and FishNet Security to help it investigate a possible data hacking. The moves came as Home Depot is trying to reassure customers that its doing all it can the day after it learned of suspicious activity that pointed to a breach. It said Tuesday that it was working with both banks and law enforcement. The possible data breach was first reported by Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security, a website that focuses on cybersecurity. Krebs said multiple banks reported evidence that Home Depot stores may be the source of a massive new batch of stolen credit and debit cards that went on sale on the black market earlier Tuesday.Our forensics and security teams have been working around the clock since we first became aware of a potential breach Tuesday morning, said Paula Drake, Home Depot said in a statement. There is no higher priority at this time than to rapidly gather the facts so that we can provide answers to our customers. We know these types of incidents can cause frustration and concern and we apologize for that.Home Depot emphasized that in the event of a breach, customers will not be responsible for any possible fraudulent charges. It said that the financial institution that issued the card or Home Depot are responsible for the charges. Hackers have broken security walls for many retailers in recent months, including Target, grocery store chain Supervalu, P.F. Changs and the thrift store operations of Goodwill. The rash of breaches has rattled shoppers confidence in the security of their personal data and pushed retailers, banks and card companies to increase security by speeding the adoption of microchips into U.S. credit and debit cards. Krebs reported that its not clear how many stores were affected but preliminary analysis indicates the breach may have affected all 2,200 Home Depot stores in the U.S. Several banks that were contacted by Krebs said they believe the breach may have started in late April or early May. If that is accurate and if even a majority of Home Depot stores were compromised this breach could be many times larger than Target, which had 40 million credit and debit cards stolen over a three-week period, said the Krebs post. Krebs said that the party responsible for the breach may be the same group of Russian and Ukrainian hackers suspected in the Target breach late last year. Krebs also broke the news of Targets breach.Millions could be affected by security lapseBy ANNE DINNOCENZIOAssociated PressTECH SECURITY

Column, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment PREP VOLLEYBALLKeynoter photo by WILLIAM AXFORDMarathon Sophomore Jackie Clairmont (left) gets the point after spiking the ball during Wednesdays overtime volleyball win over Key West.Dolphins hang on against ConchsEvenly matched Mara thon High School and Key West High volleyball teams battled through five games Wednesday in Marathon, with the Lady Dolphins getting the win with an overtime tie-breaker. The first four games ended in a 2-2 deadlock. Marathon raced to a 5-0 lead in the fifth-game tiebreaker but a scrappy Key West team closed down the gap and never let Marathon have more than a three-point lead. Key West forced extra points when the Conchs tied it at 14-14. Marathon claimed the final two points for a 16-14 decision. Both coaches said their teams did well during the match. Any time we get a win against Key West, its obviously a positive, Marathon head coach Kevin Freeman said. Im happy with the win but we definitely have room for improvement. For Key West Coach Kim Butler, the fact that her Lady Conchs fought to the end is a point of pride.It was a good match-up to go five games and down to the wire, Butler said. Even in Game 5, to watch them hustle was a show of their will and good things to come.Missed and out-of-bound hits set both teams back during the matchup. Marathon lost the first game, 18-25, but won the second, 25-15. The Conchs and Dolphins played evenly at the start of the third game, trading points until both squads deadlocked at 9-9.Marathon took advantage of Key West hits that wound up in the net or out of bounds, and cruised to a 25-11 win.It looked like Marathon would blow past Key West for a match win in the fourth game, grabbing an eightpoint lead at 21-13. But the Lady Conchs wouldnt quit. The red and white went on the offensive as Marathon missed the ball on multiple plays and hit out of bounds on others. The Conchs tied it up at 24-24 and then 2525. Key West sealed its hard-earned game victory when Marathon mishandled two shots. Key West did not quit. We were up 24-19 but they came back and won the game, Freeman said. Im proud of the girls for the comeback, Butler said. Our passing is still inconsistent. There were tight passes where we werent giving our setter the opportunity to make a play. Junior Jordan Roney was a standout for Marathon with seven aces, 17 assists and 13 kills throughout the match. Senior Johnisha Qualls also played a big part in Marathons victories, scoring six aces and four kills. Key West sophomore Sam Golden delivered five aces and junior Sarah Pike made nine digs. Marathons next home match is against Everglades Prep Academy at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Key West travels to Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart on Tuesday.Marathon wins in overtime on home courtBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.com Raiders upend the Lady CanesAfter running into a perennial District 16-4A power Wednesday, Coral Shores Highs Lady Canes volleyball team moved straight into a match against the defending state champion Friday.Results from Fridays district clash against 2013 state Class 4A winner Ransom Everglades were pending at press time. The challenge for our girls is to come each day, ready and focused to put in the work to make a run at these teams, Cane head coach Andy Thiery said before facing Ransom. On Wednesday, Gulliver Prep snapped the Canes two-match win streak to open the season with a straight-set sweep, 25-18, 25-16, 25-12, in Tavernier. Thiery described Gullivers Raiders as a buzz saw. There were so many positives, its hard to believe the scores of the matches were as lopsided as they were, he said. We put forth tremendous effort [and] worked as a team most of the time.The Canes sprinted to a 125 lead in the second game but Gulliver recovered quickly.That is what separates the teams at the top, Thiery said. When they get into advantageous positions, they go on those runs that turn out to be the difference. Amberlyn Casas scored five kills and served two aces for the Canes. Melissa Helphrey and Brooklyn Irwin each had four kill shots. Skylar DeMoss had 14 assists with two aces, while Pookie DelPino made five digs. Coral Shores (2-1 going into the Ransom match) travels to Carrollton on Tuesday for its first road match of the fall, then hosts Keys Gate Charter in a 4 p.m. Thursday home match.

Senior Jacqueline Arnet won the first relay and continually won almost all of the events for the girls, Marathon coach Sarah Maschal said. She lost maybe two or three events. Eighth-grader Hannah Ziels won the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2:33. The boys had a more difficult time due to their smaller ranks. They lost to SLAM 98-30 and Archimedean 66-31. Despite the loss, Senior Aaron Grube was able to break a school record in the 100 breast stroke, achieving a time of 1:118. The previous record was 1:21. Our boys team gets outnumbered because there are only eight of them, Maschal said. We have a hard time filling in lanes. We gave points away by not having people in events. The Dolphins traveled to Miami Country Day for a meet on Friday.Boy the boys have tougher time in MiamiBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON SWIMMINGHelp keep nuisance lionfish in checkDivers can help preserve Florida Keys reefs and earn cash prizes during a fun, competitive derby event to capture and remove as many non-native lionfish as possible from Keys waters. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation is sponsoring a one-day derby Sept. 13 based at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, mile marker 102.5 in Key Largo. REEF partners with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the dive community to cultivate hands-on, focused opportunities for Keys visitors who enjoy the natural resources to take action and remove lionfish, a popular aquarium fish believed to have been introduced to Florida waters during the 1980s. The lionfish is considered an invasive species whose rapidly growing populations in Atlantic waters are outcompeting native fish for food and territory. They are a major threat to the Keys reef health. Derby divers vie for more than $3,500 in prize money. Firstthrough thirdplace teams are rewarded for the most lionfish captured as well as the largest and smallest individual lionfish. Teams of up to four people can hunt from sunrise to 5 p.m., collecting lionfish by netting or spearing while on SCUBA, snorkeling or free diving. The public is invited to watch the derby scoring and filleting demonstrations and taste free lionfish samples.Early registration fee is $120 and includes one pair of puncture-resistant gloves per team. A mandatory participants meeting to cover lionfish ecology, their safe handling, and collection tools and techniques is set for Sept. 12 at 6:30 p.m. Participants can dive from a private vessel or a professional dive operators charterboat.For more specifics, go to www.reef.org.Pennekamp is the site of tournamentLIONFISH DERBY Catching lionfish is fun.

Heres a late-summer fact you need to know aged tequilas pair beautifully with ice cream. When I discovered this a few years ago, I started making these insanely easy, totally crave-worthy milkshakes. And Im warning you you wont be able to stop at one. And thats why I often serve these in shot glasses. It makes it easier to keep going back for more without going overboard. For ease, you can blend these shakes in advance, then place the blender carafe in the freezer. The alcohol will prevent the mixture from freezing solid and you can just give it a quick whir back on the blender base before serving. This way you also can re-fill one glass at a time and store the rest in the freezer. The beauty of this threeingredient shake is that it is made with ice cream, so you dont need to add ice and dilute the flavor. For this shake, I went with the rounder and milder reposado tequila. Reposado means rested and it has to be aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two months (but less than a year). This time in the barrel gives the tequila an amber color, as opposed to the white blanco tequila which is un-aged. It also removes the harshness of the new tequila and deepens the flavor, bringing out the vanilla notes. The reposado tequila pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream, and caramel or chocolate liqueur enhances the flavor, making a boozy shake that is perfectly balanced without any bite. This is a great drink for a theme party, as you can easily find novelty shot glasses to match any occasion and let your guests take the glasses home as a souvenir of the day. Or serve them in tall, slender glasses for a more sophisticated feel. Either way, this blender drink fits into any party, any time. How to make them:One pint vanilla ice cream.Half a cup (four ounces) Godiva Caramel or Chocolate liqueur.Half a cup (four ounces) reposado tequila. In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Divide between four chilled glasses. Serve immediately or, for a thicker consistency, place the glasses in the freezer for 30 minutes. Start to finish: Five minutes.

They fought extreme heat, giant mosquitoes and a blazing sun without (gasp!) air conditioning, bug repellent or sunscreen.Although these are common luxuries today, its never fun to forget to wear the right apparel that results in looking or feeling like a pioneer from the early days. So I give you a survival guide for every Florida Keys fashionista. For mosquitoes, keep the bloodsuckers at bay by always having bug spray available. Pack it in your car, purse and house so you never have to go without. A word of caution: Some bug repellants will take off your nail polish and can discolor clothing and leather. Be careful where you spray so you arent left in dire need of a pedicure.Keep practical footwear in your car at all times. When one regularly wears inappropriate footwear, such as sky-high heels, access to more practical shoes is a must. Tennis shoes would come in handy if your car stalls on U.S. 1. You can walk in tennis shoes a lot quicker and more comfortably than you can in heels.Likewise, flip-flops are practical to keep handy. For last-minute invites on the boat or to a waterfront restaurant with dock beams, throw on your flip-flops. Wearing heels will only result in ruined shoes and getting stuck in dock beams, both of which will make you look more like an amateur than a fashionista.Your makeup and everyday lotion should both include a decent SPF, or sun protection factor.If youre going to be outside for any period of time, make sure to apply more sunscreen with a higher SPF. This means keeping sunscreen in convenient places such as your boat, car, purse and house. Applying sunscreen while naked is the best way to make sure you dont miss a spot. The most commonly forgotten places to apply sunscreen also happen to be some of the most sensitive. Pay extra attention to your hands, lips, nose, ears and toes. There is no reason to look like Rudolph in July. Protect your skin so its as beautiful in the years to come as it is today. Of course, we know down here never to say no to an invitation to get on or near the water. So every Florida Keys fashionista should have a beach bag packed and ready to go at all times. It should include a towel, swimsuit, cover-up, sunscreen and hat so you have no excuse not to accept an invitation to lounge poolside or go boating with friends. Ever have a wardrobe malfunction? You can prevent them with lifesaving options from a place called Hollywood Fashion Secrets. It produces double-sided fashion tape to keep clothing in place, commando underwear for invisible panty lines and stain-removing pens to stay looking fashionable throughout a busy day. The Wear With All Boutique in Key Largo carries a wide assortment of these problem-solving style solutions. Its in Trade Winds Plaza at mile marker 101.4 oceanside in Key Largo.

All fit If I Stay like original packaging. Teenage girls and the boys who want to date them need to discover the pleasures of a wellexecuted teen weeper for themselves, and this film fills the bill. Chloe Grace Moretz takes on her first real starvehicle romance in this adaptation of Gayle Formans novel. Moretz is Mia, a Portland, Ore., high school cello prodigy who, 12 minutes into the movie, is in a car crash. Her spirit awakens in the crimson snow to see her broken body hauled off in an ambulance. As the able doctors operate on her, somebody says, If she wants to live, shed better start fighting. Thats what the movie is about, Mias spirit, dashing barefoot through the halls of the hospital, checking on the rest of her injured family and re-living, through flashbacks, the life she might be leaving behind. We travel back to her meeting Adam (Jamie Blackley), the hunky upperclassman alt rocker who is drawn to her good looks and her utter immersion in her instrument. Worlds collide as the Beethoven-loving cellist struggles to fit in with the Portlands two-guitar bar-band scene. In other episodes, we fall in with her still-hip parents. Dad (Joshua Leonard) used to be a punk drummer and mom (Mireille Enos) was a groupie/riot girl. Then they had their second child (Jakob Davies) and gave that up for straight jobs. Sometimes you make choices in life, is Moms wise counsel, and sometimes choices make you. Adam is Mias first kiss, gives her that first shot of whiskey and is her first in that other all-important way. But she could get into Juilliard and that first love could be the one who got away. Or she could never come out of this coma shes in, the one we see her in every time we return to the hospital, where Adam is almost the only one not allowed to see Mia. Director R.J. Cutler, a veteran TV producer/director (Nashville), keeps the camera in tight on Moretz, and the romance of this sinks or swims on her performance. Her cello playing is impressive (occasionally sped up to reach the proper tempo), her girl-inlove moments awkward, in a kind of studious way. Sometimes her body language doesnt match the tone of her voice or the pitch of the scene. Even an actress as skilled as Moretz (Let Me In, Carrie) seems lost in the boyfriend/girlfriend walking and hugging moments. And whatever disconnects the movie throws at us, the over-familiar cliches of screen romance pop music courtship montages it eventually gets down to business, Mias choice. Does she stay or does she let go? Take away the teen drinking, profanity and (off camera) sex and If I Stay is almost a faith-based film. Apparently, the only people who die more or less go by choice, in author Formans fiction. However, wonderful supporting players give the movie its third-act heart. Stacy Keach, playing the grandfather, has a couple of great scenes with Mia. Aisha Hinds is a compassionate nurse who whispers in the comatose teens ear. In the end, what matters with any weeper is, Does it earn tears? Manipulated we may be, yanked through contrived melodrama that piles grief upon grief. But If I Stay will make you wish youd brought a hanky. You know, for your date. Not that youd ever fall for this.Its all about deciding how we live lifeBy ROGER MOOREMcClatchy-TribuneIf I Stay, rated PG-13, one hour 46 minutes, playing in the Keys.MOVIE REVIEW The film centers around Chloe Grace Moretz's character following a car crash.
