The grand opening is Friday with a ribbon cutting set for noon. Move-in day for the students is Saturday, two days before classes start. The 43,000-square-foot, 100-bed, $8.2 million dorm has been five years in the making. It was designed by St. Petersburg-based Hayes Cumming Architects, built by lead contractor Sikon Construction of Deerfield Beach and developed by Missouribased Student Suites. Rooms are going quick: 78 students have applied for housing and paid a $250 deposit. College spokeswoman Amber ErnstLeonard said of those 78, 51 are male and 27 female. The age range is 17 to 32, with an average age of 19.6. Of that group, only two are returning students. Of the remainder, Ernst-Leonard said, about half are from outside Florida and most from outside Monroe County.Jon Cruciger, 19, graduated from Island Christian School in Islamorada in the spring. He considered studying at Florida International University or Indian River Community College but ultimately opted for FKCC, in part because of the new dorm.As for my expectations from the experience, I just want to meet new people, he said in an e-mail. I made the decision to go to FKCC because its close to home and I could not imagine living away from the water. Crucigers reasoning fits nicely with his planned course of study; he wants to pursue an associates degree emphasizing marine biology.According to ErnstLeonard, 66 of the 78 dorm residents have indicated they will pursue degrees through FKCCs James E. Lockwood Jr. School of Diving and Underwater Technology. She said 34 students intend to pursue associates degrees referred to as a marine science transfer plan. What this basically means is that the student dedicates the 24 required elective credits to a particular discipline that he/she plans to major in when theySaturday makes it official for 78 students calling new dorm homeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comFLORIDA KEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYCollege spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard and other staff members check out new cabinets at the 100-bed Lagoon Landing dorm on the Stock Island campus of Florida Keys Community College.The final touches are being put on the residence hall this week.Student numbers fall againTeachers returned to Keys public schools on Monday in preparation for the first day of school on Aug. 22, when 7,580 students are expected to show up for class.Thats down from 8,123 students last school year and 8,265 the year before that. But with the fewer students come fewer dollars to run the schools system, as the Monroe County School District spent the summer break cutting the operating budget by more than $8 million.While implementing the sweeping cuts, administrators tried to safeguard the studentsclassroom experience, but there is one particularly noticeable change: The length of the school day for those attending the three public Keys high schools. Over the summer, district administrators, with consent of the five-member School Board, reduced the instructional day from seven periods to six one-hour periods. The change corresponds to the loss of about 40 teacher positions, 18 of which came from Key West High School.And while district staff worked out the dicey financial picture, the top leadership position changed hands; on July 1, former Superintendent Joseph Burke moved to a corresponding post in Lee County.Jesus Jara, formerly the chief operating officer, is now the superintendent, appointed by Gov.

See Schools,2A Redistricting hearing ThursdayFlorida Keys residents can voice their thoughts on the states redistricting process at a Thursday hearing expected to draw a big contingent of Florida lawmakers.There probably will be at least 20 legislators there, said state Rep. Ron Saunders, House Democratic leaders from Key West. Having it in Key West probably will help the attendance by legislators.Whether the Thursday session, 4 to 7 p.m. at Florida Keys Community College on Stock Islands College Road, will affect the once-a-decade legislative and congressional redistricting process is an open question. I dont expect a whole lot to come out of it, Saunders said. The only reason Im going because its in my district. But there are no maps to comment on. The hearing is one of 26 sessions, a process that started in June and ends Sept. 1 in Clewiston. We have the most open, transparent and interactive redistricting process in Floridas history, said state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, Republican from Merritt Island. Dan Gelber, a former Democratic state senator now working as a counsel with the Fair Districts Florida group, dismissed the redistricting hearings as one of the great rope-a-dopes of all time ... a dog-and-pony show that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars but doesnt accomplish anything.By law, Florida legislators must draw new districts for congressional and legislative seats based on the national census conducted every 10 years.Floridas population increase from 2000 to 2010Lots of lawmakers expected in Keys for the sessionPOLITICSWoman dies in murder-suicideFormer Marathon resident Leona Field, 63, left the Florida Keys 15 years ago and longed to return.

Following is the nearly five-year process from conception to opening:October 2006: The colleges board of trustees floats the idea of a dorm with Ron Fahs, then the director of facility planning and budgeting for the Florida Division of Community Colleges. The idea was that on-campus housing would stem shrinking enrollment.December 2006: College staff reaches out to Key West officials to work out planning and concurrency issues.2007: College trustees, then-President Jill Landesberg-Boyle and consultant Jim Hendrick kick around potential sites and building methods.Early 2008: Architectural firm Hayes and Cummings is engaged to conduct a $10,000 study of how many dorm rooms could be built.May 2008: The state Board of Education OKs the on-campus housing.June 23, 2008: ThenGov. Charlie Crist signs a bill allowing the 100-bed dorm to go forward, setting a maximum height of 45 feet and exempting the structure from the rate-of-growth ordinance that ties new development to hurricane evacuation clearance times.November 2008: The college board creates a ninemember direct-support organization, the Island Living Campus Foundation, to manage the financials; per state statute, community colleges cannot incur debt related to construction or otherwise, so an affiliated entity handles that function.June 2009: Island Living issues a request for proposals to build and operate the dorm. Respondents are whittled to two firms: Wood Partners, based in Marietta, Ga., and locally affiliated with the Spottswood Cos., for a 45,000-square-foot, $10 million form; and Missouribased Student Suites for a 30,984-square-foot, $8.3 million building.Summer 2009: College staff rebels against what many call LandesbergBoyles toxic management style; she attributes some of the ire to her support of Student Suites over a local family. Island Living initially approves the Wood Partners proposal but on Sept. 4, 2009, Spottswood pulls its development bid, so Student Suites gets the job.October 2010: Afinancing deal falls apart because the potential investor wanted a guarantee on occupancy.November 2010: The Florida Keys Campus Foundation, the successor of the Island Living Campus Foundation, approves an $8.2 million bond sale to BB&Tbank. The sale closed on Nov. 12; financial firm Bergen Capital represented the college.February 2011: Dorm construction begins.Keynoter StaffKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe suites at the new Florida Keys Community College dorm arent your typical student housing;they feature spacious kitchenettes complete with full-size stainless steel refrigerators,microwaves and two-burner stoves. transfer to a university, Another 20 students indicated preference for an associates in marine environmental technology, and 12 want to pursue an associates in diving business and technology.College President Larry Tyree said the on-campus housing would provide a boost to the overall experience of attending the college.Having students on campus 24/7 will warrant more student activities than ever before, which will be a benefit for all of our students, not just those living in the residence hall, he said. I believe that Lagoon Landing will greatly enhance student life and the collegiate experience at FKCC for years to come. The raised structure is set up in fourand five-bedroom suites with two full bathrooms, a kitchenette and living room. Theres an indoor/outdoor common area in the lobby, mailroom, laundry room, fitness center and covered parking. Cable, Internet, electric and water are included in the $4,000-per-semester housing fee. All they have to do, Director of Residence Life Sherolyn Hopkins said, is pull up to the dorm and unload all their stuff. Itll be hopefully short and sweet and simple.Dorm opens its doorsFrom College,1A stant improvement, replacing whatever it takes. The new goal is summed up in a letter Jara sent to parents: To improve academic achievement, to deliver fiscal responsibility, to maximize human capital and to increase public support and confidence.As we begin the school year, Jara writes, we will stay true to these priorities and continue to build on the progress we have made over the last year. We are presented with great opportunities to help us realize rapid improvement across the district.New this year affecting students in grades six through eight attending Marathon Middle School is a dress code. The policy restricts clothing to collared buttondown or sport shirts colored royal or navy blue, yellow, gold or white; and pants, skorts for girls, and shorts in khaki, navy blue or black. At Marathon High, a change in busing removes the option for students living on Big Pine Key to ride the bus to attend Key West High School; they can still go there but have to provide their own transportation. Thats part of an effort to boost enrollment at Marathon and utilize more of the large building. For those who plan to buy school lunches, it costs $2.25 for kindergarten through fifth-grade students, and $2.50 for all other ages. Adult meals are $3.

The number of state legislative seats is fixed but boundaries change according to population shifts. Now a state senator will represent about 470,000 people, and a state representative will be elected from a district with a population around 156,700. Florida voters in November approved two amendments to the state Constitution that seek to reduce gerrymandering. The Florida Legislature has created online District Builder Web sites that invite state residents to submit their proposed district boundaries. Gelber doubts the submissions will carry much weight. Legislators are telling people to draw maps but they havent, he said Tuesday. The only group that can constitutionally draw and pass district maps is the Legislature. Those are the only maps that matter. Previous redistricting workshops have largely drawn speakers who urge legislators to follow the new constitutional amendments and ask why no draft maps have been proffered.Theyre stalling, Gelber said. For all this traveling road show, the maps they ultimately present will be unveiled in Tallahassee with a few days notice.The Legislature will launch its annual session several weeks early this coming year, on Jan. 10, 2012, instead of in March, to work on redistricting. The new boundaries must be established in time to undergo court and federal review before next years primary season begins.Gelber said he expects legislators to delay approval for as long as possible.It helps the incumbents, Gelber said. Its very hard for a citizen to run for a state seat if he doesnt know what district hes in. You cant knock on doors or raise money if you dont know where youre running for office.Saunders said his District 120 House seat will add about 22,000 residents but Monroe County will not be split.Hearing ThursdayFrom Redistrict,1ALobsterfound in underwearTwo men charged with illegally harvesting lobster Sunday in Islamorada tried to hide their catch in underwear which was hidden inside a portable toilet, according to state marine officers.The haul of 19 lobster tails was found wrapped in the pair of underwear inside the toilet at a Plantation Key construction site, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported.Miami residents Oscar M. Carrero, 18, and Fernando R. Rodriguez, 25, were booked into the county jail on four misdemeanor counts each. According to the FWC, a resident of the Plantation by the Sea condominiums reported suspicious diving activity on the oceanside near mile marker 87 around 5 p.m. FWC Officer Aaron Smith and a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy stopped Carrero as he left the water at a home under construction near the condominium. Officers questioned Carrero about four speared mangrove snapper in his possession and a pole spear found behind a dumpster. Then they found the underwear-wrapped lobster tails stashed inside the portable toilet. Three of the tails showed they had been speared and 10 were undersized, said FWC spokesman Officer Bobby Dube.Rodriguez reportedly arrived at the site to pick Carrero up, but left in a hurry when he saw officers. He was stopped near the scene.Counts lodged include possessing 13 lobster over the recreational limit, failing to have a fishing license and a dive flag, and spearfishing in state waters of the Upper Keys.And that was stashed inside porta-pottyUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgEaton redo well on its wayPlans call for crews engaged by the city of Key West to finish milling and repaving Eaton Street, a major artery linking Old Town with New Town, by the coming weekend. The cost of the $352,000 construction is being equally split between the city and Monroe County, which actually owns the surface of the street; thats $176,000 each. While contractor D.N. Higgins is doing the work, the road is closed between Simonton and White streets. Residents of the thoroughfare are not allowed to park between those blocks during the weeklong project but are being offered free parking for the duration at the nearby Park and Ride garage at Caroline and Grinnell streets. City staff planned the repaving for mid-August to try to minimize the impact to residents and businesses; the area contains numerous second homes and bed and breakfasts. The milling, using heavy machinery to eat up the first two inches of asphalt, was well under way Tuesday despite scattered rain. Once repaved, the road striping and configuration of on-street parking will be restored unchanged. City spokeswoman Alyson Crean pointed out that a number of city bus routes have been temporarily moved from Eaton Street this week and now run down adjacent Fleming and Southard streets.Paving work could be done by the weekendKEY WESTKeynoter Staff
three months before I left the office and asked if there was any place down here and was I looking for anyone, he said. Higgs said Field, known as Big Red because of her stature and hair color, was a good employee.She was good handling people and doing the things that had to get done. She had a job that sometimes isnt all that great, but she let the people understand she had a job to do and certain rules to follow, he said.Gail Tierney, spokeswoman for the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, said detectives recovered the handgun Davidson used to kill Field, then himself, in their front yard. Davidson also hit 66year-old Steven Snowman, of nearby Inverness, in the head with a metal stove grate. Tierney said Fields had asked Snowman and his girlfriend to be at the house when she broke up with Davidson. She was planning to tell Davidson to remove his belongings and leave the residence. But she was leery of what his reaction might be, so wanted friends present to help keep things under control. Snowman and his girlfriend were the only other people present when the shootings occurred, she said.Tierney said detectives made no mention of Davidson having a history of mental illness or violence, but that witnesses indicated [he] was known to have a temper. She said police hadnt been previously called to the couples home. Tierney said neighbors heard the shots and went outside to see what was happening. She added one neighbor with nursing experience responded to the front yard to assist until [emergency medical service] personnel arrived on scene.Field is survived by her father, two brothers, two sons and four grandchildren. Acelebration of life is planned for 2 p.m. Saturday at her Dunnellon home.Higgs, Field talkedFrom Field,1A Wednesday,August 17,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com NOTICE OFPUBLIC MEETING FLORIDAKEYS AQUEDUCTAUTHORITYFLORIDAKEYS ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC.BOARD ROOM 91630 Overseas Highway Tavernier, Florida 33070THURSDAY, AUGUST25, 2011The Executive Session is a closed session for the purpose of discussing upcoming labor contract negotiations for the FKAA.

The meeting, at 6 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, is the City Councils final budget review for 2011-12 prior to a pair of public hearings Sept. 8 and 13. Hernstadt said he feels the property tax rate of 1.9999, set July 21, is reasonable and that the proposed budget requires little tinkering. It was good strategy to arrive at a spot and stay there and provide stability to our property owners rather than have us guessing for three months whats going to happen, he said. To achieve the 1.9999 tax rate, the city is slated to use $431,643 in reserves and be left with roughly $4.39 million. That will leave the city with 45 percent of its $8.8 million operating budget on hand in case of emergency. If that rate is finalized, the owner of a $300,000 house in Marathon would pay $599 in property taxes next fiscal year. As for the reserves, Hernstadt said, The Government Finance Officers Association will recommend 17 percent. Were exceeding double that. Were in a hurricane prone area so its prudent to do that, but its a very good safe fund balance. Some council members have voiced concern with the City of Marathon Marina expecting to collect $40,000 less than its $700,000 budget this year. But Hernstadt said staff doesnt plan to propose rate increases at the marina.I dont know if theyll delve into that or not, he said.The proposed budget has no raises for city employees. And for the first time, they will contribute outside of copays and prescriptions to their health insurance. He said each employee would be asked to pay $25 per week.Additionally, Last week, the City Council approved decreasing city retirement plan contributions from 10 percent to 5 percent for future hires.Theyre doing their part to help out, Hernstadt said.Public hearings are scheduled for SeptemberBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONTRIM notices go out FridayMonroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum is scheduled to send out to property owners Truth in Millage notices on Friday.

Seeing another vessel, a 16-foot Stratos, drifting with no operator visible, the boater drew alongside and spotted a body. The dead man aboard was identified as Tavernier resident John Schubert, 43. All available evidence at press time indicates Schubert died by suicide, according the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. A gun lay at his feet aboard the Stratos. Personal items including a cell phone and money were on the boat. Schubert reportedly had not been seen since Thursday. His boat was found about midway between Tavernier Creek and Cowpens channel north of Plantation Key. Officer Jason Rafter of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded to the initial report of the body, then contacted the Sheriffs Office to investigate a shooting. Detectives searched Schuberts home and found documents which indicate his death may be a suicide, according to an agency spokeswoman. Nothing about the death is inconsistent with a suicide. Schubert listed his occupation as financial advisor when cited in a misdemeanor case from 2008. Earlier this year, he filed state corporation papers for an adventure charters company.Cops:Suicide victim adrift for four daysUPPER KEYSKeynoter StaffKeys BPpayments still climbingThirteen months after the Deepwater Horizon oil well was capped, damage payments to Monroe County residents and businesses now exceed $144 million. As of Monday, the amount received by 9,432 claims from the Keys because of business losses reached $144,328,542, according to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. No information was available on the number of unsettled or rejected claims from Monroe County. The federal government established the Gulf Coast Claims Facility to handle settlements from the oil spill in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The spill spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil more than 200 million gallons into the Gulf after the oil rig exploded, burned and sank on April 20, 2010. Eleven men on it died. Oil flowed from the sea floor about a mile down for nearly three months until the spill was capped July 15. None of the Deepwater Horizon oil was found in Keys waters, but the prospect of currents bringing the oil to the Keys and through the Florida Straits caused last summers tourism business to plummet as visitors feared the worst. All of the Monroe County claims focus on recovering income lost to the threat of the spill. Florida businesses and residents now have received a total of $1.82 billion in final or interim payments on 139,469 claims. There are 173,989 pending or rejected Florida claims.Louisiana, more directly in the spill path, has received $1.48 billion on 114,960 paid claims. Louisiana has 233,425 rejected or pending claims.Earlier this summer, the Gulf Coast Claims Facility hired two dozen jurists to oversee appeals of denied claims. In July, BPofficials alarmed Florida representatives when the company contended payments should taper off because the Gulf [tourism] economy experienced a robust recovery in the fall of 2010, and that economic performance remains strong in 2011.

EDITORIALRedistricting: Flawed processLETTERS TO THE EDITORKeys need protectionThe Florida Department of Community Affairs has for years protected the Keys by not approving changes to our land-use plan that would damage ecosystems and ambiance here. Now Gov. Rick Scott has gutted the DCAand appointed one of the biggest developers in Florida, Billy Buzzett of the St. Joe Co., as its head. We can no longer depend on protection from DCA. AJuly 14 letter from Buzzett to Monroe County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley concerning Wisteria Island shows DCAs current direction. The letter basically states that Buzzett has met with Wisterias owner, Mr. Bernstein, and sees no problem developing it. So it is now up to the county commissioners to protect us from unwise changes to the countys land-use plan. And heaven help us when we get another Gang of Three or concrete coalition of three commissioners who never see a development they dont like. The Gang of Three was soundly defeated in elections. However, without DCAduring their reigns, the Keys would look more like downtown Atlanta instead of the chain of beautiful Caribbean islands that they are. To counter this threat, Commissioner Sylvia Murphy has purposed that a super-majority of four votes of the commission be required on all changes to the land-use plan. Most changes to the plan pass 5-0 because they are non-controversial. The controversial ones are always favoring some developer trying to get a more lucrative deal at the expense of the environment and the quality of life we value. The County Commission is scheduled to vote on the super-majority requirement at 3 p.m. today at its meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo. To pass the requirement, we need the present commissioners to know the citizens favor it. Shirley Freeman Key WestTighten the ruleThe Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowner Associations has reviewed the proposed ordinance that would allow a super-majority vote by the Monroe County Commission to change comprehensive plan amendments as well as text amendments to the land development code. We feel that a requirement of this nature is necessary to protect the public investment in a document that has been secured by the diligence of many citizens. However, we do not view this action as an extraordinary measure because super-majority is well established in the Florida Constitution and statutes as well as the U.S. Constitution. We acknowledge that setting the comprehensive plan in stone could work to the disadvantage of the community, which is why we view the proposal of a simple majority vote during an evaluation and appraisal report as a reasonable compromise. We support a super-majority for certain amendments to the text of the land development code. Asuper-majority, for instance, for zoning changes is less cumbersome than the current rule. We support the County Commission adopting an ordinance requiring a supermajority to approve any future ordinance that adopts, amends, repeals or otherwise changes the Monroe County land development regulations. Burke Cannon Vice president Key LargoSuper-majority neededThe Sugarloaf Shores Property Owners Association, representing more than half the residences on Sugarloaf Key, supports development that is in keeping with the character of our community. We are very concerned about zoning and land-use designation changes that may have a negative effect on the community. If a land-use change is good for the community, four county commissioners will recognize it. If a land-use change is not good for the community, our community stands a much better chance of protection if two commissioners can stop it. In light of the diminished oversight of the state Department of Community Affairs and the potential for change in the makeup or philosophy of future county commissions, we strongly support approval of a County Commission super-majority vote requirement for land-plan changes. Darrell Dye Board president Sugarloaf ShoresGoodbye,QuiznosIt is with sadness that Quiznos has left the restaurant scene in Marathon.

Best of luck to Brent, Mary and crew in their future endeavors. Mark and Fay-Lynn Trachtman MarathonOnly Keys meeting is on Thursday, but input might not mean much as Republicans fight two amendmentsKeys residents get a chance Thursday to watch state lawmakers at work. Theres no guarantee it will be a pretty sight. Thats because the Legislatures Redistricting Committee brings its road show to Stock Island on Thursday at Florida Keys Community College. This is part of a statewide series of public meetings in which lawmakers charged with redrawing political boundaries listen to public concerns and complaints. The first such meeting was held June 20 in Tallahassee and the last one is scheduled Sept. 1 in Clewiston. One of the complaints dogging the committee everywhere it goes: The Legislature doesnt have maps showing any of the proposed boundary changes. There are practical and political reasons for this, of course. First, the practical reason. The 2010 census numbers have been released at county-level detail. But the municipal data has yet to be officially blessed by the U.S. Census Bureau. So some lawmakers argue they cant really draw the boundaries until they get that level of detail, especially in large cities served by more than one House or Senate member. Now, the political reason why there are no maps yet: The Republican-controlled Legislature is engaged in a court fight over two constitutional amendments passed by voters last year. Amendments 5 and 6 essentially tie the hands of the Legislature, restricting the practice of gerrymandering, in which district boundaries are redrawn to favor one political party or the other. Since the Legislature has veto-proof Republican majorities in both the Florida House and Senate, you can see where this redistricting fight is headed. The joint committee expects to finish its public meetings Sept. 1 and then work on findings and maps in November and December. That postpones any legislative action into January and starts the clock running for review by the Florida Supreme Court next spring. Best case, according to the timeline produced by the joint committee: Sometime in June the district boundaries will be official. That could be just days before the June 12-18 qualifying period opens for candidates seeking state or federal office in 2012. If that seems like a slow-mo track designed to help incumbents stay in office, you might find a lot of skeptical voters who agree. Judge for yourself by attending the committees only public meeting in the Keys, 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Florida Keys Community College.

Sheriff Bob Peryam Capt. Corey Bryan Lt. Mitch Horn Sgt. Roy BogueCut back salariesThe Republican Party sponsored a town-hall meeting on Aug. 10 at the Holiday Inn in Key Largo. It was a robust affair, well attended and informative. Having just witnessed the downgrade of the United States governments credit rating, which triggered a worldwide financial panic, I was skeptical about the stability of our economy. As I left for the meeting, our stock market had just lost about 600 points for the day. I was ill prepared for County Administrator Roman Gastesis economic pep talk about how the difficult fiscal times facing the citizens of Monroe County were over, predicting that home values and tax revenues are going to increase. His clairvoyance was prognosticated in a fancy report. I challenged his findings as being incongruent with the realities of the day. I also suggested that pay raises for the county staff might be inappropriate at this time. I erred. I meant to say that pay raises for himself, along with the exorbitant salaries given to select members of the county staff, which includes attorneys, administrators, department heads, project managers and the like, are improper and need to be cut. Bureaucrats are never brilliant. Their substantial incomes are balanced on the backs of the employees they oversee. Its the men and women beneath them, those working in the field, that keep this county operational. The padded salaries of these managerial types are breaking the backs of the taxpayers who employ them and depleting the resources available to improve the quality of our lives. The money is not given to the individuals who actually have their boots on the ground in our communities, delivering the services that we are paying for. This problem plagues the School District, as well fat paychecks at the top while our children scurry for teachers and milk money. We must find leaders that will correct this injustice. John Donnelly Key Largo Marathon Office Depot Manager Tanya Hundley and Regional Manager Bill Haag show some of the supplies.City closes in on firehouseThe Marathon City Council has gotten a first look at what the long-awaited new fire station on Grassy Key will look like. Architect William Horn presented to the board on Aug. 9 several renderings with flat and hip, or sloped, roofs, and went over construction costs for buildings able to withstand varying wind speeds 150 mph, 175 mph and 200 mph. The cheaper the wind load, the cheaper the building will be, Horn said. He based cost estimates on a 5,000square-foot building. At 150 mph, a prefabricated concrete wall panel design would be the cheapest to construct, at $1.22 million. A metal building on a concrete base would be $1.24 million, while a concrete masonry unit building would be $1.28 million. At 175 mph, the concrete wall design would cost $1.37 million, while the metal building would be $1.39 million, and the masonry building $1.46 million. The 200 mph wind load designs are the most expensive $1.5 million for concrete wall and $1.63 for masonry. There was no metal building estimate at 200 mph.In his presentation to the council, Horn warned that metal buildings often dont withstand storms as well as concrete buildings and said insurance costs would likely be higher for a metal building.Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay disagreed. He said metal buildings are safe and that the city could realize savings with that design. They have all the qualifications to meet whatever wind loads we require, he said.Ramsay also requested Horn investigate Styrofoam block design, which he said is incorporated with concrete and can withstand heavy winds. Horn said hes familiar with, but never worked, on a Styrofoam block building. The council unanimously favored a hip-roof design over a flat roof, and directed Horn to proceed with a 150mph design using whichever design is least expensive between masonry and Styrofoam block. The council would consider a metal building if there is an extreme savings. The fire station will be built at mile marker 59.Council chooses sloped design on Grassy KeyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONNew hires to contribute moreThe Marathon City Council met in regular session on Aug. 9 and took the following actions:Unanimously approved a resolution decreasing the citys contribution to retirement plans for new hires from 10 percent to 5 percent. There will also be a 60-day waiting period before new hires are eligible for retirement benefits.City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the policy is in response to the councils instructions to investigate savings in insurance costs. Employees will also be asked to contribute $25 per week toward health benefits.Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said the city is compelled to continue the retirement contributions for existing employees. Once we gave our word to our employees that theyd receive certain benefits, we had an obligation to continue that contract with them. [Its] not sustainable for new employees. Im thrilled were putting together a sustainable benefit package, he said.Approved a 180-day extension to a contract with Keys Graphix and Sign of the Florida Keys for signs at both entrances to the city. The original contract, for $30,878, was approved in January, but the design has not been decided on. Council members approved the extension but urged staff to move forward with getting the entrance signs done. I dont want this to drag on forever. Id like to see a design as quickly as possible, Councilman Mike Cinque said.Council members say the citys current signs cant be seen at dark and arent as attractive as theyd like.Extended a grant from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council to clean beaches for 90 days, from Oct. 1 until Dec. 31, so that the city can conduct a bid process and determine the cost of beach cleaning services after this year.The city cut ties with Richard Tompkins, owner of Beachcomber of the Florida Keys LLC, after he reportedly caused $11,425 worth of damage to wetlands and trees at Coco Plum Beach while removing seaweed there.The state Department of Environmental Protection got wind of the damage and slapped Marathon with an $11,425 mitigation bill. The council voted 4-1 on June 14 to hire Delray Beach-based Universal Beach Services to perform services in the interim. It held the contract from 2001 through 2007.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON
By KAREN QUISTkquist@keynoter.comIts been a long time in the making, but the the island chain can again claim a television station all its own. WEYW-Channel 19 is broadcasting from a tiny office on Stock Island, with two satellite offices up the Keys. Its starting small just a few hours of local programming in between classic TV but plans to grow. Rick Bellizzi, president of the Bellizzi Broadcasting Network, got his start with Nextel years ago and now owns the MetroPCS stores in the Keys. Hes leveraging his communications expertise and the skills of his 10-member team to build a local television station program by program. The goal is to offer informative and entertaining programming for Keys residents, while also reaching out to the mainland. Bellizzi sees WEYWas a way to shrink the sprawling chain and bring its islands together. One end of the county doesnt know the other, he said. I want to bridge that gap. Jenna Stauffer is WEYWs news anchor. Right now shes hosting a fiveday-aweek morning show with local broadcast veteran Rick Lopez. Good Morning with Rick and Jenna airs at 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. She describes it as a Regis & Kathie Lee kind of show, with a couple of guests each episode and unscripted banter. Later this month, Stauffer will be behind the anchor desk at 7 p.m. for a more traditional half-hour news show that will also feature Lopez covering familiar territory sports. Lopez hosted a weekly TVshow called the Conch Report until Comcast ceased local programming in February. I think this is something the Florida Keys has needed for a long time, Stauffer said of a TVstation that provides truly local programming. She worked for the CBS affiliate in Greenville, S.C., before moving to the Keys a year ago. She said she was looking to develop a base of operations in Florida for the next phase of her broadcast career, and she came to Key West because a family friend had a place in which she could live. Stauffer landed a gig as half of KONK Broadcastings The Larry and Jenna Show. Then, this kind of fell into my lap. Shes excited by the opportunity to work on a startup like WEYW. I love a challenge. Local radio broadcasters Bill Hoebee and Samantha Langdale round out the stations current roster of on-air talent. Hoebees also no stranger to the small screen; his local TVexperience includes several years cohosting the half-hour Comcast Keys News show with Lopez. Hell host a happy hour-style show. The ever-growing lineup includes Cooking in the Keys with Chef John Hines, and Follow the Law with Sheriff Bob Peryam. WEYW also airs a locally produced series called Spear Divers. Bellizzi is trying to get WEYWmoved from Comcast Channel 87 to Channel 19. Bellizzi wants to be on 19 not just for branding, but to make sure hes catching the attention of every viewer he can, including those who just have the basic channels. Spero Canton, a South Florida-based Comcast spokesman, said WEYW would have been placed on Channel 87 because thats the channel range where Comcast routinely puts leased-access, low-power stations. WEYWuses one of four low-power television transmitters located in the Keys, Bellizzi said. Theyre not must carries, he said, referring to local broadcast stations such as WTVJ, the NBC affiliate in Miami. Leased-access station locations on the lineup vary among regions and cable systems, Canton said. Canton said he knows there have been discussions about changing WEYWs location, but he said he wasnt privy to those talks or their status. WEYWis already on Channel 19 on U-verse, AT&Ts answer to cable, and Bellizzis working to get on the satellite systems. U-verse in South Florida can put the station in front of 100,000 sets of eyes, while Comcast in the Keys could mean another 35,000 or so. Its a powerful reach for a Keys-based broadcaster. WEYW-Channel 19 is one of about 100 affiliates of RTV the Retro Television Network which airs such classics as The Rifleman. RTVallows WEYWto air local programming for a set number of hours a day, but it also gives it flexibility to break in when needed something that might come in handy this time of year. The evolution of technology has significantly reduced the space and equipment needed to run a television station. The station is headquartered on Stock Island, where it shares a building with one of Bellizzis MetroPCS stores. WEYWs editing and control room is about the size of the average Keys living room, and the studio is even smaller. Its a snug fit, but it works for now. Bellizzi plans to expand so they have about 1,500 square feet to work in. Chief engineer Russ Garner is just starting to learn the Tricaster, a pricey piece of equipment that allows him to do the work once done by six or eight people at a TVstation. The tiny studio has a green screen, lights, several cameras and a trio of chairs. Theres no set, because WEYWs equipment can create virtual ones including desks around the on-air folks. WEYWhas news trucks based at Bellizzis stores in Marathon and Tavernier, which gives the station Keyswide reach. WEYWs cameras are small, so they can be easily wrangled by a cameraman or producer during out-of-studio shoots. Bellizzis working to get a live feed from the National Weather Services office in Key West. And hes building partnerships with other local companies, like Joe Nascones Keys Radio Group, to further expand his reach. WEYWwill continue to add local programming, but in baby steps, Bellizzi said. Event coverage and live shots will also be part of the mix. It took Bellizzi months just to get WEYWon the air, but now its really starting to take off. Each day, they resist the urge to bite off more than they can chew, particularly when they start fielding calls from new viewers in Miami. Its a big appetite that wants to be fed constantly, he said.WEYWoffers local programmingTiny TV station has plans to grow in Keys Chief Engineer Russ Garner shows the array of equipment in WEYWs headquarters on Stock Island.

Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyleDolphin slows,tuna growsWhat had been a very good dolphin bite over the weekend seems to have petered out the past couple of days, according to the most recent reports Ive received from charter captains. Taking up the slack is blackfin tuna at the humps. The majority of the tuna are in the 10to 15-pound class. However, there have been sightings of extremely large blackfins busting the surface on the huge amounts of bait under the weeds. On the reef, the average size of the yellowtail snapper has increased a bit, with lots of fish in the 15to 18-inch range. The best action is on the deep edge of the reef in 80 to 90 feet of water. There are still plenty of mangrove snapper in the 40to 60-foot depths on the reef. So if yellowtailing isnt paying off, move up shallower and try for the mangroves. They are equally as delicious and will surprise you with their fight. As always, copious amounts of chum are key to arousing the interest of the snappers. Small baits, such as ballyhoo pieces and silversides, work for the yellowtails, while larger chunks of ballyhoo and small pinfish do the trick for the mangroves. There have been good numbers of ballyhoo showing up in the snapper slicks, so be sure to have a cast net or hair hooks along to catch this prized bait fish. Put them out with a small piece of wire on a short shank 1/0 or 2/0 live bait hook, and cero or king mackerel will give you a good run for your efforts. In Florida Bay, lobster divers report more and larger mangrove snappers. And Ive seen plentiful amounts of 15to 16-inch mangroves in the areas Ive been shark fishing. Speaking of sharks, lemons in the 5to 7-foot class have been biting aggressively in the clear, shallow areas of Florida Bay. Its quite the spectacle to observe the sharks interacting with one another near the boat and then hook one and reel it in for aAnd inshore, snapper bite is fairly solidFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSVolleyball Hurricanes in new districtAnew Florida Keys rivalry takes shape as the prep volleyball season opens next week. Coral Shores and Key West high schools now face off in a revamped lineup in the girlsDistrict 16-4Aranks, along with Gulliver Prep and St. Brendan. Its an interesting change that could work in our favor, said Hurricane head coach Andy Thiery. Ransom Everglades, which has been the cream of the crop for several years, has been moved out [to District 15-4A], so our situation might get better, he said Monday. The Florida Keys Classic preseason tournament is scheduled to be played Aug. 25 at Marathon High School in a three-team round robin featuring the host Dolphins, Conchs and Hurricanes. Coral Shores opens the regular season Aug. 26 at Gulliver Prep. The Lady Canes drew 14 players to the falls first preseason practice Aug. 8. Thats our best first day ever, as far as the number of people coming out, Thiery said. Assistant coach Chad Gardner and Thiery must fill several starting-position holes left by the graduation of a sterling senior class that included standout hitter Latrice Johnson and defensive specialist Amber Spaulding. Lakelia Cooper and Kelsey Thiele, veteran seniors from last years 19-7 club, worked hard during the off-season to sharpen their net skills, Thiery said. Lakelia and Kelsey played club ball and it shows, he said. They came back with a competitive, get-down-to-business attitude. Their skills have really improved. The squad also will benefit from several other capable Cane athletes who turned out for the fall season, the coach said. So far, its been a real good squad, Thiery said.

Chris Johnson CaptainsColumn See Fishing,2BNo clear finish line for Conch runnersDespite a blend of racetested veterans and promising newcomers, the 2011 Key West High School boys and girls cross-country teams are off and running amid an air of concern. I can never recall going into a season with more uncertainties, fifth-year coach Terence White said before the Conchs began practice on Monday. But the up side is that if everything falls into place and the new kids come through, we could have a great season. The boys team is expected to be led by senior Aeschton Tomita, the third-fastest 3.1mile runner in the programs history, although he enters practice with a knee problem. He ran a 5K personal-best 17 minutes, 15 seconds last season and trails only Zack Black (16:49) and Zach Harden (17:04) on the Conchsall-time list. Tomita, however, did not advance to the state meet after running a 17:44 and finishing 19th at the regionals. White said he believes Tomita will be fine by midseason and has a shot at surpassing Harden. Hes extremely motivated and never misses a practice, the coach said. Tomita will be pressed for the No. 1 position by senior Ryan Wagner, the basketball player whose 17:56 at last seasons regional meet put him sixth on the schools alltime list, and by newcomer Julian Ramirez, who impressed White with a time of 19:20 at this summers Hemingway Days 5K. In cross-country, it is vital to have five strong runners, and White is counting on sophomore Brock Guzman and senior Bobby Finigan (19:25 at the regional meet) to pick up the pace behind the top three. For the Key West girls, Morgan Nelson is back for her senior season, and she too is trying to overcome a knee injury. Her time of 20:17 as a sophomore is the Conch girls record. Shes the rock of our team, White said. She motivates the people around her. Also returning are junior sisters Liz and Erin Czerwinski, both of whom posted personal-best times (22:22 and 22:77, respectively) last season. Asophomore to watch will be Tristan Milliken, who broke six minutes in the mile run as a member of the track team. We will have depth issues, White said. The Conchs will be familiar figures this month as they run along the beaches and through the streets of Old Town and White will match them stride for stride. At 41, he runs about 40 miles a week.

Jim Griffith, of Angler Management Charters at the Island Fish Co. in Marathon, has had numerous lobster charters since the season opened Aug. 6. Lobstering has been great, with limits caught on all trips and some very large bugs to boot. Offshore in 600 feet of water and beyond, Griffiths anglers have had success with wahoo, dolphin and lots of large blackfin tuna. Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon, had another busy week on the reef and offshore. And fishing offshore with his dad, Russ, 14-year-old Matt, from Michigan, caught his first-ever dolphin after boating a bunch of blackfin tuna. Capt. Jeff Shelar, of CatchEm-All Charters docked at Captain Pips Marina in Marathon, got on the dolphin bite before it disappeared with a catch of 28 fish between 8 and 15 pounds. Inshore, Shelar has had great catches of mangroves in 35 to 40 feet of water. And his angler, Mark Stevens from the United Kingdom, landed a beast of a 72-pound amberjack in 180 feet. Captains Howard Kelley and Zach Willis, along with mate Neil Apley, fishing on the fleet at Captain Pips, continue their good stretch of dolphin fishing with groups and families from Florida, Colorado and Texas. Additionally, the Steadman family caught 35 good-size yellowtail snapper on the reef. The Womack gang from Arcadia, the Fletcher family from Odessa and the McZeal crew from Houston all had active trips to the reef for mangrove and yellowtail snapper with us on the SeaSquared On Sunday, I was honored to have one of my all-time sports heroes, Yankee legend Bucky Dent, on board for some outstanding dolphin fishing. He brought along his son Cody for a little father-son bonding before Cody heads back to the University of Florida. Back from vacation, Capt. Moe Mottice, of Reel Lucky Charters at Turtle Kraals in Key West, reports tarpon from 25 to 125 pounds are still biting inshore, with sharks, snapper and barracuda mixed in for fun. His evening tarpon/shark trips are offering up lots of action and, on the reef, his anglers are having a blast with yellowtails and mangroves.Casting for CharityAnd remember, Capt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon. The fun contest runs from 6 to 8 p.m., and this weeks recipient is the Pigeon Key Foundation. Capt. Chris Johnson specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, bottom, wreck and reef fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of the 7 Mile Marina in Marathon. You can reach him at 743-5305, SeaSquared @bellsouth.net and www.Sea Squared-Charters.com.

Heres how KeysReuse works, according to founder Mike Welber of Marathon: We list everything from appliances to school supplies and many things in between. Perhaps youll see something that you have that has been sitting in storage. If you click on the item [on the Web site], youll find out which nonprofit group needs that very thing. Then send the nonprofit group an e-mail or call to see how you can best deliver it. In this way, everyone wins. You dispose of something that has been cluttering up your house. The nonprofit gets something it really needs. And we all keep these things from sitting in the dump for hundreds of years. The shelter helps survivors of domestic abuse begin again and provides immediate safety to victims and their children. The organization also educates, supports and promotes community awareness about domestic violence throughout the Florida Keys. What the shelter needs now is living room furniture and bedroom furnishings, and has an ongoing need for reloadable cell phones and chargers. We perform an important service throughout Monroe County and Keys Reuse.com can help supplement the items we really need, said Chief Executive Officer Venita Garvin Valdez. At a time when financial support for nonprofits has dropped, donations of unused or unneeded items really helps. The kinds of things the shelter could use more often sit in residentsstorage closets or even in trash cans. Rather than storing unused stuff or, worse yet, throwing useful things away, locals should log onto www.KeysReuse.com and see if the Domestic Abuse Shelter or any of the other 24 local nonprofits on the site could use what they have.Abuse shelter needs furniture and cell phonesKEYS NONPROFITS Islamorada Office Now OpenDarel D.

But Facebook and other sites can also lead to shattered relationships. According to a new study, the three mostcommon negative experiences are:Ignoring or denying friend requests.Deleting public messages or identification tags.Seeing a Top Friends list on which one doesnt appear or is ranked lower than expected. Robert S. Tokunaga of the University of Arizona studied 197 college students concerning their social networking experiences. More than one-quarter of the students said they had been denied or been ignored regarding a friend request and just less than 25 percent had someone delete a public message or identification tag. All three of the major negative experiences are ones that can be found only in the world of social networking, he pointed out. In real life, one does not walk up to another person and ask to friend him or her. Experience in social interactions in the real world often doesnt translate to the virtual world. People using social networking sites are unable to apply their own knowledge of social norms in offline settings to the online domain, Tokunaga explained. Even the word friend means vastly different things to different people in the social networking world. Still, knowing which social networking behaviors are liable to irritate others should help everyone. It is not advisable to engage in these acts without presenting a legitimate reason for the behaviors, he said.
