WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,NOVEMBER 2,2011 VOLUME 58,NO.88 25 CENTS Big drug bust An erratic driver has more trouble than his motoring skills,as hes busted for drugs during a traffic stop.Story, 2A Murder probe Key West police are saying little about their investigation into a Friday homicide,the Keys third of the year.Story, 4A Tow complaints come to headMarathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay was in the towing business for 28 years in the Middle Keys. He says hes received several complaints of late about local tow companies accepting only cash to release vehicles back to residents. Ramsay proposes changing the citys law, which is identical to Monroe Countys, to mirror Key Wests tow ordinance. I propose, based on the number of e-mails ... to tell someone they have to pay cash, I dont think is right. We should change it so they have to take different methods of payment such as credit cards and travelers checks, Ramsay said. The issue stems from residents being towed by Florida Keys Towing after parking in a private lot adjacent to the public Quay boat ramp near mile marker 54. Marathon resident Ron Costa e-mailed Ramsay saying he parked a boat trailer at the lot while he tested repairs to his vessel on the water. He arrived an hour later to find his truck towed. I saw a number of signs saying youll be towed ... but there was also a sign saying no overnight parking between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., Costa said. Costa said he acknowledges wrongdoing, but was angered when owner Florida Keys Towing owner Bill Pruitt would accept only cash as payment. I took out my card and he looks at me and says cash. I happen to have the money on me and I give it to him. The whole thing smells; what theyre doing is legal, but it smells, he said. Key Wests law reads: In addition to accepting cash, all tow companies shallCash-only policy for Marathon tows likely going awayBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comAfter receiving continued pressure from Monroe County Mayor Heather Carruthers, officials with the U.S. Postal Service are reexamining the parking situation at the Key West post office on Whitehead Street. Carruthers, joined by Key West Mayor Craig Cates and Keys U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, wants to put an end to predatory towing practices at the large, oftenvacant Old Town lot. Meanwhile, Cates is working through the Key West City Commission to garner support for changes to city law that governs how tow companies can operate and charge for their services. Long a sore spot for locals and visitors, Postal Service representatives have held that because the office lobby is open after closing time, the parking spots need to be clear for patrons, not used by folks visiting or running errands downtown. Debbie Fetterly, the services South Florida spokeswoman, said in a Tuesday email that currently the Postal Service is reviewing the parking lot situation in Key West. The after-hours towing is a particularly irksome practice because the post office is a public service, a government enterprise, Carruthers wrote in a Monday e-mail to another Postal Service spokesman, Earl Artis. The practice alienates tourists and discourages locals from coming downtown. It is bad for all business save that of the tow companies. It is unfriendly, harmful to our tourism economy, and just bad karma in general. It is the reason our citizens are distrustful and disdainful of government.For Key West, Postal Service looks at changeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCONSUMERS See Key West,2ASee Marathon,2A CRASH LANDINGPhoto by SHERIFFS OFFICE SGT.EVAN CALHOUNA jet owned by five-time NASCAR champion Jimmy Johnson rests at the end of the runway at Key West International Airport after losing its brakes Monday night.Aboard were Rick Hendrick,owner of NASCARs Hendrick Motorsports, for which Johnson drives,and his wife.Both were taken to Lower Keys Medical Center for injuries sustained.Story, 2A Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWThe Lady Eagles volleyball team of Island Christian School shows its District 16-2A championship trophy.The 13-1 team,which entered the state playoffs Tuesday,sealed its regular season Friday with a three-game sweep of Calusa Prep.Story, 1BVOLLEYBALL CHAMPS Few problems from Fantasy FestAside from a noticeable uptick in arrests made in Monroe County for driving under the influence, law enforcement arrested few rule breakers in the Keys over the weekend for the annual bacchanalia known as Fantasy Fest. Based on reports provided by Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin, from Thursday through Sunday, there were 16 DUI arrests in the Keys. Key West police patrolling the Fantasy Zone that ran along Duval Street and included cross streets between Whitehead and Simonton streets made at least four of those arrests. Those 16 DUIs compare to 10 such arrests logged for the same long weekend of Fantasy Fest in 2010; for New Years Eve 2010, including the day before and day after, eight DUI arrests were made countywide. Key West police spokeswoman Alyson Crean described the weekend as controlled chaos the usual. She credited a heavy rain shower during the Saturday night parade as helping quiet things down more quickly.Asurvey of police reports indicates two reports of robbery, neither resulting in arrests, and two instances of drug-related activity that yielded three arrests originating within the Fantasy Zone.On Thursday, police patrolling near the 800 block of Duval apprehended a man for allegedly smoking marijuana in a portable toilet. After getting a tip from a passerby, two officers approached the toilet and smelled the strong odor of marijuana emanating from the center Port-a-Let, according to an arrest report. After I knocked several times, wrote Officer Frank Betz, 47-year-old Key Wester Michael Epperhart exited the restroom. As Epperhart opened the door, the odor of marijuana became overwhelming. Epperharts face filled with disheartenment as he noticed the police standing near the entrance. He was charged with a misdemeanor possession and a second misdemeanorBut there are a lot of DUIs over weekendBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTFinalists for chief to go to council Nov. 22Initially planning to appoint a committee to screen the applicants for fire chief, then short-list the top candidates for the City Council, Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt has decided to just take on the process on his own. My goal is to bring the short list of names by the second meeting in November and see if [the City Council wants] to set up a special meeting. At that point, Ill say I interviewed these people and these are the top three or four, he said. The city received 93 applications by its Oct. 21 deadline to replace William Wagner, who split chief duties in Marathon and Islamorada for three years before Marathon ended the agreement on Sept. 30. Hernstadt said he plans to interview, and do background checks on, what he considers the top 12 to 18 candidates of the 93. He said all 93 have significant fire department experience, with varying degrees of supervisory background. Theres plenty of quality people. Itll really get down to fit and personality at the end. Depending on who were most comfortable with, itll be that as much as background because their backgrounds will be similar, Hernstadt said.

Some advice: If youre carrying a lot of illegal drugs in your car, its best to obey traffic laws so as not to draw attention to yourself. Jesse Leese, 25, of Baltimore, Md., learned that over the weekend, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. The laborer was charged with several drug-related offenses around 11 a.m. Sunday after deputies pulled him over near 53rd Street in Marathon after receiving a call from a motorist that the van Leese was driving northbound at mile marker 20 was crossing the center line of U.S. 1. That was at 10:28 a.m. Deputies staked out the van on the Marathon end of the Seven Mile Bridge, which Leese crossed at 10:58 a.m., then followed the suspect for a few miles before pulling him over. When they did, they reportedly found more than 230 prescription pills and other drugs inside the van. The report says Leese was driving all over the road, including into oncoming traffic and off onto the shoulder. He had four passengers inside. During the traffic stop, the arrest report says, deputies saw an open bottle of Sailor Jerrys rum behind the drivers seat. Leese was initially given warnings for not staying in his lane, not carrying a current insurance card and for the open container. But Leese admitted to having marijuana in the van, leading deputies to conduct a search. They found numerous containers including a pair for Tic Tac candies holding the prescription pills Xanax, oxycodone, methadone and Adderal, as well as hash.Leese was charged with felony counts of possessing opium or a derivative, and a controlled substance without a prescription. Hes also charged with misdemeanor marijuana and drug equipment possession. He had $544 on him, which was seized for possible forfeiture.One of is passengers, 42year-old Cerrina Norton of Key Largo, was charged with possession of marijuana.Leese remained in jail as of Tuesday afternoon at the Monroe County Detention Center on $6,000 bond.

The Nov. 8 session is from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and the Nov. 9 session from 9 a.m. to noon. Both are at the Marathon Garden Club, mile marker 50 bayside.Although the meetings are open to the public, those planning to attend are asked to register in advance online at www.myfwc.com/ Conservation ; select Coastal Wildlife Conservation Initiative, then Register.FWC staff will present an overview of the initiative and its partnership strategy, and ask those attending to identify pressing coastal conservation issues in their area in this case, the Keys and discuss gaps in research, education, management and regulation that stand in the way of resolving those issues. Said Blair Hayman, the initiatives coordinator. Critical, immediate, as well as long-standing coastal wildlife conservation issues could be addressed more effectively through the cooperative efforts of a partnership rather than by individual agencies or entities.

Tow companies operating on the citys tow rotation list shall afford owners a reasonable time to secure an acceptable method of payment and must have a written policy in place regarding accepting credit or debit cards on site at all times. Pruitt could not be reached for comment by press time. Its unclear whether he has an agreement with the propertys owner to tow any vehicle parked there. The council appeared to agree with Ramsay the towing law should be amended, but Mayor Ginger Snead said a larger problem is with the lack of available public boat-ramp parking. I think there should be an alternate method of paying. Thats the most immediate problem we have, but it goes deeper than that. We need to fix the problem itself, not just a symptom of the problem, she said.There is no available public parking near the Quay boat ramp and only limited space at public ramps on 33rd Street and Harbor Drive. Residents had complained for months about traffic created by illegal parking at a lot adjacent to the Harbor ramp, so the city made it a no-parking site.Councilman Mike Cinque said the Keys are land poor when it comes to parking and suggested using a portion of the cityowned 104th Street property once designated for affordable housing to fix the problem. We might be able to designate a portion of that property for boat trailers and put an automated fence in there, he said. The council approved a motion to amend the law and research solutions to the lack of parking.Marathon to amend lawFrom Marathon,1A She pointed to a specific complaint logged on the Monroe County website over weekend after a Saturday incident. Claus Parow of Lakeland wrote that he parked in the lot for less than an hour while visiting with his wife for Fantasy Fest and came back to find his car gone. He ended up paying $260 in cash to retrieve his vehicle, adding that dealing with staff at Arnolds Towing was like dealing with the Gestapo. Since this obviously is a well-known scam in Key West, why has nothing been done to stop it? Cates agreed the fee structure and overall operations of local tow companies should be re-examined, hence two amended ordinances he planned to bring to city commissioners in a meeting after press time on Tuesday. Its one heck of a scam and its unbelievable, he said. They have your car; you can fight it as a civil matter but it could be months or weeks. And if you lose, youre paying all that storage. People know you cant fight it.Mayor calls it heck of a scamFrom Key West,1A Jim Callahan. County Administrator Roman Gastesi encouraged Callahan to apply in the hopes the two governments could share his cost, just like the arrangement Marathon and Islamorada had for Wagner. But the council is less than enthusiastic about that plan, preferring instead to hire its own full-time chief. Ill probably meet with him to envision how he understood the relationship would work, Hernstadt said. From the comments in the [local media], it seems theyre more inclined to hire their own fire chief. The second council meeting of the month is scheduled for Nov. 22 at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.

NASCAR team owner injured in plane crashAjet carrying Rick Hendrick, owner of NASCARs Hendrick Motorsports, and his wife, Linda, crash-landed Monday evening at Key West International Airport.Both were taken to Lower Keys Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, according to Peter Horton, director of airports for Monroe County.The Gulfstream 150, which was registered to NASCAR five-time champion Jimmie Johnson, who drives for Hendrick Motorsports, apparently lost its brakes upon landing at the small airport about 7:45 p.m.Horton said the pilot and co-pilot radioed to the tower saying they had no brakes. The plane skidded off the 4,800-foot runway and came to a stop along a 600-foot unpaved safety area that had just been added at the airport in May. If this area hadnt been added, the outcome would have been different and probably catastrophic, Horton said. Before, we had only 100 feet of overrun, and then they would have gone into a salt pond and hit an embankment.The pilot and co-pilot, whose names were not available, were walking after the accident and did not appear to be injured, Horton said. But both pilots were taken to the hospital for evaluation.Hendrick and his wife were put on stretchers and taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries was not available. The National Transportation Safety Board was notified and will be investigating the incident. In 2004, Hendricks team plane crashed en route to a NASCAR race, killing all 10 aboard, including his son, brother and two nieces. The Hendricks own a waterfront home on Sunset Key. NASCAR has its seasonending race, the Ford 400, on Nov. 20 at Homestead Miami Speedway.Aircraft slides off Keys runway Monday nightBy CAMMY CLARKcclark@MiamiHerald.comKEY WESTErratic driving leads to big drug haulMaryland man reportedly had pills,hash,potBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Photo courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICEDeputy Jon Barry Huff (left) and Deputy Bradford Colen show the drugs,cash and other items seized during a Sunday morning traffic stop.Police pulled over 25-yearold Maryland resident Jesse Leese for driving erratically and found him carrying more than 230 prescription pills, marijuana,hash and an open bottle of rum.

With $540,000 in federal grant money in hand, staff at the Sigsbee Charter School in Key West is planning ways to improve math and science curriculums and extend additional training to teachers.Sigsbee, formerly a traditional public school, became a public charter in July 2010; the school at 939 Felton Road is funded by the state but not constrained by the testing and reporting standards by which the Monroe County School District has to abide.Eighty percent of Sigsbees 385 students are the dependents of military members, hence the grant from the U.S. Department of Defenses Educational Activity Educational Partnership.We are very excited and weve already started making plans, Sigsbee Principal Eli Jannes said. We cannot spend the money on facilities or operational costs like hiring new teachers, she said. Basically, what the money will be spent on is increasing achievement through the implementation of new technology. That will include laptop computers, Apple iPads and Smart Boards, which are interactive white boards that teachers use. Jannes said other funds would be used to bring in consultants and coaches to help the teachers with professional development. Sigsbee has 20 teachers and 30 support personnel. Jannes said the budget for 2011-12 is $3 million.It definitely is a substantial amount for our school and it will definitely help us to fill some gaps we have in being a new charter school. Some of our materials are outdated at this point and we could stand to upgrade our technology.The Department of Defenses education arm awarded more than $64 million in grants this year to 57 military-connected local education agencies. Marilee Fitzgerald, acting director of the Department of Educational Activity Office, summarized the goal of the grants as ensuring that the children of military families receive an excellent education that prepares them for successful careers and to be active contributors to their communities and the nation.

The other drug-related incident saw two Miami men arrested for possession of cocaine in the 800 block of Duval after another partygoer told cops the men were selling drugs. Crean said police use discretion during the 10-day festival, attempting to gain compliance from offenders.

He was immediately put on administrative leave. Wilson said then that Weiner bought a Big Pine Key house in 2005, then got assigned to Fort Myers in 2006. While living in Fort Myers, Weiner rented his Keys house out but claimed the homestead exemption, Wilson said. The FDLE says Weiner claimed the Big Pine exemption for the tax years 2007 to 2010. As a result, the FDLE says, Weiner received at least $5,918 in tax exemptions to which he was not entitled. Florida homeowners are allowed one homestead exemption, which allows for a property-tax break on their permanent residence. It can be claimed only when the owners live in the house.

EDITORIALTough sell to share servicesLETTERS TO THE EDITORHave lionfish for dinnerIn recent years, rapidly increasing lionfish populations have taken hold of South Florida reefs and are wreaking havoc on coral reef ecology, much to the disdain of marine resource managers and fishermen. Despite efforts by local, state and federal governments as well as private organizations, the lionfish population continues to grow. Yet all is not lost. If lionfish can enter the market, commercial fishing pressure can limit their harmful ecological effects while providing a tasty, sustainable food source. With no predators and rapid reproductive rates, lionfish have established themselves and are consuming native reef fish, some of which are commercially important. The Key Largo-based Reef Environmental Education Foundation has organized several lionfish derbies throughout South Florida, contributing to the removal of more than 6,000 lionfish since 2009. Amanagement program at Biscayne National Park has removed more than 950 from park waters the past two years. While such efforts are certainly beneficial in limiting the spread of lionfish, alone they cannot effectively control the entire population. To mitigate this, they must enter the market as a valuable commodity. And why shouldnt they? Theyre delicious and easy to catch. Spearfishermen need only to spear lionfish in addition to their other target species, though extra care should be taken when handling the fish. Deepwater lobstermen can also take advantage of lionfish. With increasing frequency, lionfish are pulled up in lobster traps. Instead of being tossed overboard, they can be kept on ice and sold along with the much-desired lobster. At restaurants and fish markets, customers could enjoy a reasonably priced delicacy while contributing to the environmental health of South Florida reefs. Currently, only a handful of restaurants in the Keys offer lionfish as an entree or appetizer. At local favorites such as Lazy Days, Fish House Encore and the Conch House, where lionfish is served with some regularity, it is served either whole or filleted, with prices similar to that of grouper or yellowtail. Other restaurants could follow suit to where lionfish could easily earn a more permanent and lucrative spot on the menu. If restaurants or fish markets expressed a demand for fresh lionfish, without much change spearfishermen and deep-water lobstermen could follow through with a supply. Moreover, placing lionfish on the menu could bring restaurants and fish markets increased revenue while educating the public about lionfish and their excellent taste. With little change to existing operations, making lionfish a valuable commercial commodity has several potential positive effects on our community and on our reefs. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provides a detailed list of regulations that apply to recreational and commercial harvesting of lionfish. Go to http://myfwc.com and search lionfish. Lee Richter Palmetto Bay Editors note: The writer is a recent graduate of Brown University and a recreational fisherman.

Sutira Reynolds MarathonEconomy of scale among governmentseasy on the face of it, but thats itSometimes pushing rocks uphill produces more frustration than forward progress. It must seem that way to Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi, who proposed the notion last week that Marathon and Monroe County share a fire chief. From where Gastesi sits, its economy of scale. His quote in Saturdays Keynoter is illustrative of the frustration: I think its silly to have five fire chiefs in a community of 73,000 people. I think its a waste of money. Bear in mind, Gastesi came to the Keys from a pretty high perch in Miami-Dade County government. So hes familiar with the notion of duplicated services, having seen it play out for years in that urban county with cities competing for police, fire, public works and other government services with high-paid administrators attached to each entity. Unfortunately for Gastesi, the idea of more cooperation between the county fire services and the city of Marathon has been floated before. You may remember the firestorm that erupted in Marathon when the county approached Key Colony Beach to bid for fire services from the countys Conch Key perch; Marathon had been Key Colonys contracted fire department. The county was going to station a truck and some men closer to Key Colony Beach and it underbid Marathons revised contract offer. In the dustup ultimately, Key Colony stayed with Marathon there were lots of egos bruised, including those of elected officials in Marathon and Key Colony. Of note, however, the elected county commissioners stayed away from that fray, recognizing the politics made that foray lose-lose instead of win-win. Marathon already tried sharing for the past two and a half years borrowing time from Islamorada Fire Chief William Wagner in a deal that split the costs between the two communities and was blessed by previous city councils. But when some Village Council members complained that Wagner was spending more time in Marathon than in Islamorada, the compact unraveled and fast. Marathon terminated its end of the deal and is actively recruiting to hire its own full-time chief. Even though Gastesis latest trial balloon appears to be losing its air, dont be surprised to see the idea of consolidating services continue to draw some support, especially from those who question what government services cost. The toughest challenge for Gastesi who has also floated the idea of shared government fleet service to explain is the disparity in what taxpayers pay.

City Building Official Ed Borysiewicz denied Floods September application because of a longstanding city rule against real estate businesses in residential areas. The consensus is that real estate offices generate too much foot traffic. There are real estate offices up and down U.S. 1. Id advise you legally that real estate offices are not customarily practiced at the home. Its just a fact, City Attorney Tom Wright said. The decision set off a debate last month over the validity of existing licenses after Floods husband, Steven, complained to the commission that its unfair to discriminate between real estate and other businesses. There are numerous commercial licenses on Key Colony Beach, but only 10 exist in residential areas. That includes four contractors, an accountant, a mobile computer-repair business and a land surveying business, among others. My point wasnt to [complain about] any particular business. The point was how you differentiate what businesses you give a license to, Flood said at Thursdays meeting. Commissioners Jeff Vorick and Mary Schmidt voting against denying the license. But Vorick went further, recommended doing away with all home occupational licenses. From all the research I did, if youre doing business in the city, you cant do it in your house because thats the way its designed. We have to eliminate the home occupation license and decide if the language in the [land development regulations] needs to be changed. We just dont allow businesses in a residential area, period, he said.Schmidt used the example that tenants at her rental property bringing rent to her house could be considered conducting business at the home.Its a slippery slope; we either have to do it one way or the other, she said. Mayor Ron Sutton said the law works fine as it is because he knows of no complaints from neighbors.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com.Denial led to revisit of issuesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BAECHCops mum on murder probeAs friends gathered Tuesday night to mourn the death of Jonathan Jainan Alvarado, 32, police in Key West remained tight-lipped about their ongoing investigation into his grisly Friday homicide. Alvarados body was found underneath a truck at 1019 Grinnell St. just after 8 a.m. Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said it appears he died of severe head trauma inflicted by a large rock that was right there next to his head.The specific cause of death is awaiting autopsy results from the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office.Alvardo, a native of Venezuela and formerly a server at La Trattoria Beachside, was described by an acquaintance as really quiet and very friendly. Part-time Key West resident Joe Dunsmoor said he met Alvarado more than a year ago at the former Bogarts Irish Pub; now the 900 Duval St. bar is called McConnells, which hosted a memorial Tuesday for the deceased patron. He had a group of friends he would hang out with there, Dunsmoor said. He was usually quiet but he liked to talk about music and play songs on the jukebox. Alvarado was last seen alive at Dons Place bar early Friday morning. David Chesnet, an advertising representative for the Keynoter, lives half a block from Dons Place and just feet from where the body was found.He said he fell asleep on the couch around 3 a.m. and awoke to police working the crime scene a few hours later.The thing that really bothers me is it was right outside the window. How did I not hear it?Crean said detectives extensively questioned several people as part of their investigation, although she did not identify any suspects.This is the third murder this year in the Florida Keys. On Sept. 2, Carl Eric Johanson, 66, was found in his apartment at the Henry Haskins Senior Citizen Plaza on Kennedy Drive, bound with his throat slashed. Tod Geofrey Helfrich, 46, is the prime suspect although he has not been charged with murder. The other incident, a murder-suicide, took place on Little Torch Key in May.

They look like credit or gift cards, can be reloaded with money and dont require the holder to keep a bank account. Some shoppers say they like prepaid cards as a way to stick to a budget and avoid overdraft fees at banks. Some also find the cards better safeguard their funds and information when they buy online. But there are problems too. Some prepaid cards charge hefty fees. Some are inconvenient to reload. And the cards have less government regulation than credit cards, critics say. Nationwide, the prepaid card business is booming, partly because rising fees on checking accounts are prompting customers to seek alternatives, said Mercator Advisory Group of Boston. The amount of money that consumers loaded on their prepaid cards jumped from $12 billion in 2008 to $42 billion last year and likely will top $70 billion this year, Mercator said. Consumers buy prepaid cards mostly at stores, such as check-cashing outlets, groceries or big-box retailers such as Walmart. The cards generally carry logos for MasterCard and Visa because they can be processed on those financial platforms. The biggest U.S. issuer is Green Dot Corp. of Monrovia, Calif., which works with Walmart and other big chains. Financial reforms are also fueling growth. Congress last year moved to cap fees that banks get from merchants every time a debit card is used. But prepaid cards are not affected, so more banks are expected to launch or expand prepaid products. American Express unveiled its first prepaid card for consumers in June. And many big national banks, including Bank of America, are mulling prepaid cards.Theyre helpful when trying to balance moneyMcClatchy-TribunePERSONAL FINANCE
NEWS BRIEFSBus driver cited in fatal crashThe Florida Highway Patrol on Tuesday charged a Monroe County School District bus driver with careless driving in connection with the death of a man in a bus-moped crash in the spring. Linda Kunz, 50, struck Luis Mardones, 62, who was riding a 2006 Dael moped east on College Road on Stock Island about 7:30 a.m. on April 13. Kunz was driving a 2009 International bus, taking kids to school. Kunz, 50, failed to maintain control of her vehicle and [began] to travel westbound on the eastbound lane] of College Road, the FHPsaid. She crossed a double yellow line before striking Mardones. Mardones, a Chile native, was pronounced dead shortly thereafter at Lower Keys Medical Center. There were 50 students, kindergarten to grade four, on the bus when he was struck.Senate panel OKs booster-seat billThe state Senate Transportation Committee on Tuesday passed a bill (SB 196) that would require car booster seats for children between ages 4 and 7. Current law requires car seats for children under age 5, though in some cases a 4year-old can use a seat belt. Key West police are working with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office to explore additional charges that could be levied against a man accused of firing 13 shots in the middle of Truman Avenue. Christopher Dunn, a 36year-old local man, reported the incident on Oct. 26 after it occurred around 4:30 a.m. the day before. Dunn told police he was sitting at 934 Truman Ave., eating chicken wings, when a costumed man threatened his life using derogatory insults; soon after, a man firing a rifle returned as Dunn, who said he initially thought it was a prank, was getting in a taxi. Witness statements led authorities to Tristin Bland, 29, a tattoo artist who lives on Packer Street, very near where the shooting was reported; he is being held without bond on one felony count of firing a gun into a structure. Were still in conference with the State Attorneys Office, Key West Police Department spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. There are still pending charges. She said additional charges could perhaps, be related to a hate crime based on the nature of the slurs Bland allegedly directed at Dunn. There are certainly other possibilities, Crean said. Whether its a hate crime ... its really hard to know a motive. They have to have a pretty strong case; a hate crime is a complex thing. Florida has four statutes covering hate crimes that call for enhanced penalties upon conviction. They apply to crimes committed with prejudice based on the race, color, ancestry, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, mental or physical disability, or advanced age of the victim. That state law was already on the books when, in 2009, federal lawmakers approved the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which allows federal prosecution of hate crimes committed on the basis of sexual orientation. Truman Avenue was temporarily closed when police surveyed the crime scene, collecting spent shell casings from a .22-caliber rifle.Shooting could garner more chargesCops looking at hate-crime possibilityBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,November 2,2011 TROPICAL FURNITURE GALLERYPatio & Home4801 Overseas Highway Marathon, FL33050 (305) 289-2038 D Ultimate Dental Care,Inc.FALL SPECIALS MEDICAIDWILL NOWP A Y FORDENTURES & PARTIALSWE NOW ACCEPT: ALL HMO'S, NETWORK PPO'S, MEDICAID, HEALTHY KIDS, MCNA DENTAL, DISCOUNT PLANS Bonding (white fillings) From $95 $145 Crowns d2750 $600 Veneers d2962 $575 Root Canal Treatment d3310 $650 d3320 $800 d3330 $950 Gum Treatment Deep Scaling $125 /quadrant Simple Extraction d7140 $95 Complete Dentures Upper & Lower d5110 & d5120 $650 ea.

Welber Coord. Channel-widening no slam dunkIn the run-up to Tuesday nights Key West City Commission meeting, Mayor Craig Cates was expecting extensive and spirited discussion about a possible citywide referendum asking voters whether to widen Key Wests shipping channel to allow for bigger cruise ships. City Manager Jim Scholl has proposed the nonbinding vote for Jan. 31, the date of the presidential primary. The question would ask if the city should pursue modifications to widen a portion of the Key West Harbor Deep Water Channel to facilitate safe navigation. The operating plan is to extend Cut B of the channel from 300 feet to 450 feet; it would cost an estimated $36 million. But before it could go forward if even approved, the city would have to secure $5.5 million for an in-depth analysis of the environmental and economic impacts. That money could come from almost anywhere the city itself, grants, even the cruise industry. Cates criticized the proposed referendum, especially ballot language that includes asking if the city should support the study. That, he says, is too broad. It seems like if the citizens approve it, it goes into the actual process. Cates pointed out that the end goal of the project to accommodate newer, larger cruise ships that carry more passengers is not addressed in the wording, which zeroes in on safe navigation. Its not just safety, he said. Its to safely bring in bigger cruise ships. I think its way too vague. If this passes, it opens the door to go ahead and widen the channel. He also said the project, which would require a litany of governmental approvals, might not be undertaken for up to a decade if it got the green light. We dont have enough information to vote on this today. City staff coordinates around 350 cruise ship visits each year, totaling around 800,000 passengers. All of those passengers pay a disembarkation fee the city collects.

And the sailfish are here right on time. There has been an excellent color change on the reef in the Middle Keys holding an abundance of ballyhoo to keep the pelagic species interested. Sailfish, dolphin, wahoo and cobia are all taking advantage of the superior feeding conditions. For those not familiar, what we refer to as the color change is the area where the water goes from powder blue to purple as if someone drew a line in the ocean. The color change acts like a weed line to attract bait fish and, in turn, the predators. The pelagics hover on the color change to ambush the ballyhoo and other bait fish in the dirtier water. On the reef itself, the snapper and grouper bite has been outstanding with lots of large yellowtails up to 24 inches, good numbers of medium 10to 12-pound muttons and some nice large black grouper. There are plenty of keeper-size yellowtails and some very good mangroves on the patch reefs. The best bait here has been a live ballyhoo plucked out of your chum slick. Put it on a jig head anywhere from a quarter to a half ounce and pitch it back in your slick for the mangroves. The patches are also holding a few keeper-size red groupers, and you can use theSpanish macs also here in good numbersFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS Chris Johnson CaptainsColumn See Fishing,2B Mate John Antaramian (left) and Bob Ruckel show Ruckels first sailfish,caught on the Papa Pipswith Capt.

Norland a huge challenge for ConchsHow colossal of an upset would it be if the Key West High School football team defeated Miami Norland in a game scheduled to kick off at 7:30 Friday night at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium? It would be the second biggest in school history, said Conchs coach Jerry Hughes, who should know. The biggest was in 1963 when we beat No. 1-in-thestate Coral Gables, 7-6, in Miami, said Hughes, who played in that game as a defensive end. Norland is 8-0 in the regular season (although it did lose to Miramar in the preseason) and is the second-ranked team in 5Ain the Associated Press sportswriters poll and 87th in the country, according to computer rankings by the online site MaxPreps. We can only control what we can do, Hughes said. Its called match-ups, and theirs are better than ours. We have to play our best and not make the mental mistakes weve been making. The Vikings are averaging 34.5 points a game and allowing an average of 8.5. Key West (4-3) is averaging 23.3 points and giving up 19.7. Ive been told they have nine Division 1 prospects and that they went out and got 12 to 15 kids from other schools. We dont change. If we have a kid as a ninth-grader, youre going to see him in four years. New bleacher sections are being installed at the stadium to accommodate an expected 350 Norland fans. Theyre coming down for a vacation, theyre not worried about the Conchs, Hughes said, adding that Norland didnt ask to see a Key West film. Hughes is worried about his offensive line, which is piecemeal. Jerry Regis, Vincent Jones and K.C. Sagan have been on it all season, but inexperienced players will be at the other two spots. Norland has a large contingent of players who weigh more than 250 pounds, including Ereck Flowers, a 66, 315-pound offensive lineman. Hell be facing our defensive end who is 5-8, 160, Hughes said. That could be an eclipse. If Norland wins, it will win the three-team District 16-5Atitle and the Conchs will be out of the state playoffs. If the Conchs win, they will be 1-1 in the district and tied with Norland and Jackson. The top two teams would then be determined by a shoot-out type of playoff in Miami.Coach:Only game bigger was in 1963KEY WEST FOOTBALLBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorCanes let lead slip awayOffense was on full display during a Coral Shores High School football loss to Coral Springs Christian Academy Friday, 42-36. The Hurricanes held a 28-21 lead in the second half, but it slipped away late after a failed fake punt attempt and a fumble recovery for a touchdown by Coral Springs. It was a great offensive game. They had trouble stopping us and we had trouble stopping them. The kids competed well, coach Ed Holly said. Were trying to build a program with great character and thats starting to shine through. Andrew Garcia scored on a pair of touchdown runs and quarterback Addison Duma-Kenny had one of his own as the Canes (3-5) traded scores with Coral Springs in the first half. The score was 21-21 at the break. Atouchdown run by Alex Gomez put the Hurricanes up 28-21 in the second half, but Coral Springs tied the game at 2828 on a 75-yard touchdown run. The Crusaders took a 3528 lead after stopping Coral Shores on a fourth-down fake punt attempt and running their next offensive play in for a touchdown. We felt if we could get the first down, they wouldnt have the opportunity to stop us. Amishandled snap and a penalty put us in the fourth-down situation, Holly said. Its basically a quarterback sweep. We werent even looking at it as a punt situation; we were looking at it as our next offensive play. The Canes fumbled on the ensuing drive and Coral Springs scored on a 35-yard return to go up 42-28 late in the game. Coral Shores answered back, scoring on a 12-yard pass from Duma-Kenny to Alberto Anderson and converting a two-point conversion to make it 42-36. Holly said he went for two to keep the momentum going into the Canes onside-kick attempt. That way the team would have a chance to win in regulation if it scored. But Coral Springs recovered the kick and ran out the clock. Coral Shores is scheduled to host Palmer Trinity School Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Theyre 7-1 right now and on a roll. What a great challenge to have at home, Holly said.Crusaders win battle of offensesCORAL SPRINGS CHRISTIAN,42,CORAL SHORES 36New district proves tough for DolphinsMarathon High School wrapped up a difficult three-game stretch against District 16-3Afootball opponents Friday with a 420 loss to Archbishop Carroll. The Dolphins (2-6) were reclassified this off-season by the Florida High School Athletic Association from Class-1Ato Class-3A, and the transition is proving to be difficult. Theyre just bigger and faster and theres more of them, so it makes it difficult, coach Lance Martin said. Theres five [teams] that are equal and four that are above everyone else. Marathon faced three of the four in a row this month. It lost to Westminster Christian School Oct. 7 and Chaminade Prep Oct. 14 before a bye this past week. Against Carroll, the Dolphins kept the score close early, trailing just 7-0 as the first quarter expired. But five second-quarter touchdowns put the game out of reach by the half. Offensively, they run the shotgun spread, but the way they align their receivers, they tell you where the ball is going. We were there, but just didnt make the plays, Martin said. Still, he said the Dolphins played well after the break. The defense held the Bulldogs in check, despite Carroll not substituting starters and running a normal offense throughout. They threw the ball 20 times after they were up 42, Martin said. We started to get better pressure from the line and it allowed the linebackers to start making plays. Senior Trevelle Beckford was the highlight offensively for the Dolphins, rushing for 74 yards on 13 carries. But the Dolphins managed only 18 yards passing and 115 total yards of offense. Beckford also had seven total tackles and an interception. Ramarlo Robertson also had seven tackles and a fumble recovery on the opening defensive drive. Martin said the Dolphins are looking forward to closing out the regular season with a pair of games against teams similar to them. Theyre scheduled to visit Florida Christian School Friday at 7 p.m. for the final District 16 game of the year. Florida Christian has about the same number of kids we have. Hopefully its a competitive football game, Martin said.

Playing on the Conchs home turf, the Dolphins defeated Key West in a rainand lightning-filled contest on Friday, 3-2, before losing to University in a Saturday afternoon tilt, 4-1. Marathon coach Lynn Landry said Key West coach Scott Paul held out a number of his regulars from Fridays contest, which made for a good game to ease his young roster into the season. My eighthand ninthgraders are my biggest group of core players, Landry said. Ive got a couple older players playing more than they ever have, so it was a nice game for us. Savannah Rodamer scored in the 10th minute off an assist from Taylor Konrath to give the Dolphins a 1-0 lead. Rodamer scored from around 10 yards out. Key West answered back in the 19th minute with a goal from Hannah Leen. She scored on a direct kick from just outside the 18yard box to make it 1-1. Key West took the lead when Marathon scored its own goal in the 30th minute. The ball bounced off a defender in the box and into the net to make it 2-1. The final six minutes of the first half were canceled because lightning delayed the game for 45 minutes. In the second half, Dolphin Katie Landry tied the game in the 46th minute, taking a ball from around midfield and beating a pair of defenders. She beat the goalie in a one-on-one situation to make it 2-2. Marathon scored the game-winning goal late in the second half when Brandi Spalten touched home a rebound off a Taylor Konrath shot that bounced off the goalie. On Saturday, University put Marathon in an early hole by scoring a goal in the third minute to go up 1-0. They really broke our defense down for an early goal before we started settling down, Landry said. Konrath scored at the 6:00 mark by chasing down a pass back to the goalie. The keeper tried to kick the ball away, but it hit Konrath and bounced backward back into the goal. University scored in the 35th minute after a defensive lapse led to a breakaway goal. Another goal in the 54th minute off a crossing ball made it 3-1, and the final goal came with time winding down. Key West also played University on Friday and lost, 2-1. Devin Mitchell scored the Conchsgoal. Marathon is scheduled to open the regular season today with a visit to Key West at 5 p.m.Good tuneup for todays season openerMARATHON SOCCERBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com
