That must be the sentiment for 30-plus No Name Key homeowners who've fought long and hard to bring commercial electricity to the Lower Keys island off Big Pine Key. And now you can tack another court action onto the growing number of pending lawsuits and state Public Service Commission complaints stalling a resolution to the long-running battle over electrification. Attorney Andy Tobin filed a response, which he called a separate writ of mandamus, to Monroe County's filing for injunction to stop Keys Energy Services from installing 60 commercial power poles and wire on the 1,000-acre island. It's too late for that, since the utility finished the project that the No Name Key Property Owners Association paid $650,000 for in late July. But the county still objects to the poles being in place. Tobin said a writ of mandamus is meant to compel a public official to perform a duty they're supposed to perform, in this case to issue building permits applied for by several No Name residents to connect to the grid. They're supposed to follow the law and process building permits according to the code. Audlin has already ruled the PSC has exclusive jurisdiction, soNo Name Key has poles and wires, but no power hookup POWER STRUGGLE ON NO NAMEBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSee No Name,6A About this seriesThe battle over whether to bring commercial electricity to No Name Key now powered by solar and generators has resulted in litigation,bitter feelings among neighbors and debates about green energy.

Posh'prison now home for ex-bankerThe former boss of Naples-based Orion Bank is behind bars, doing time for his crime. But his criminal case isn't over in federal court. At a hearing in Orlando, a federal judge is set to decide how much money Jerry Williams the 51-year-old ex-banker should pay the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. for its losses. The FDIC wants more than $31 million, the amount tied to its estimated losses on the fraudulent loans Williams and his co-conspirators made as part of a scheme to trick regulators and make the bank appear in better financial shape than it was as it teetered on the edge of collapse. Williams'attorneys have argued the FDIC's losses are much less, based in part on the fact that the fraudulent loans have been repackaged and sold since Orion failed. The defense attorneys have also argued $15 million went bank to the bank as part of the conspiracy. However, the court has already found that the $15 million was not used to pay off any of the fraudulent loans. "Mr. Williams was the one person at Orion that had the power to stop the illegal acts. Instead, he actively concealed the facts regarding these transactions from Orion's outside directors," wrote Steven Smith, an FDIC attorney, in a victim impact statement. The FDIC took over the bank's fraudulent loans after selling most of Orion's assets to IberiaBank. The restitution amount will be decided by U.S. District Judge Charlene Honeywell. Williams, Orion's former CEO, has already agreed to pay more than $5.7 million to four Orion shareholders who he sold stock to months before the bank failed in November 2009. He will not be at this week's hearing. Former bank employees who bought company stock won't get any of the restitution money that Williams is ordered to pay. Williams got his start in Marathon where he headed up First National Bank of the Florida Keys, which grew to become a regional player, Orion Bank. At its peak, Orion had 23 branches and $2.7 billion in assets. Though it will bring him no money, Patrick Miller, a former senior vice president for Orion, said the restitution hearing will bring him "more closure." "It's a formality as far as I'm concerned," he said, adding that he doesn't plan on attending and doesn't know of any other former employees who will. The hearing isn't expected to take long and won't influence Williams'sentencing, which happened in June. He's serving a six-year sentence and reported to a federal prison camp last week in Montgomery, Ala. It was the prison he requested and one that landed on a list of "The Best Places to Go to Prison" by Alan Ellis, a defense attorney who specializes in white-collar crimes, such as bank fraud. It's a minimum security prison for men, with about 860 inmates on Maxwell Air Force Base. According to Ellis, the prison includes a music room and pool tables and some inmates get to work outside as gardeners and landscapers on the military base.

At about 11 feet long, the python apparently is the largest invasive-exotic snake yet captured in the Florida Keys. "The officers who captured it said this one was very nasty," said Officer Robert Dube, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildife Conservation Commission. That's why the wildlife agency noted the python "is not believed to be someone's escaped pet." "Usually snakes that have been kept in cages and handled regularly are more docile," Dube explained. "This one was ready to fight." Deputy Bryan Cross of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office was on patrol around 11 p.m. Friday when he spotted the python near mile 105. The snake slithered into a heavily wooded lot, but the deputy followed it while calling for wildlife officers. FWC Officers Jason Rafter, Kip Hoover and Shelton Bartlet came to corral and capture the potentially dangerous reptile. Several pythons have been captured in the Keys but numbers are not recorded. "We've probably been averaging about one a year for several years now," Dube said. In November, a 7-foot python was found on a Key Colony Beach driveway. The first python ever discovered on Key Largo was found when researchers tracking a Key Largo woodrat with a radio collar followed the signal straight to the snake's belly. The previous largest python from the Keys measured about 10 feet, 6 inches. For several years, it was believed that the pythons found in the Keys probably were released or escaped pets. However, research conducted in 2011 by U.S. Geological Survey staff demonstrated that pythons apparently have the ability to survive in salt water meaning the reptiles may be able to swim across Florida Bay from the Everglades. Apython killed in the Everglades earlier this year measured a record 17 feet, 7 inches, and was carrying 87 eggs. Constrictor snakes like pythons are considered a menace to native wildlife in Florida. Captured constrictor snakes usually are killed for research into their eating habits.11-foot-long reptile caught in Key LargoKEY LARGO Contributed PhotoThis python caught in Key Largo Friday is indicative of the growing population of the nonnative menaces.FWC Officer Jason Rafter is on the left and Kip Hoover is on the right.County begins budget hearings todayAseries of three hearings to determine the Monroe County budget be gins today in Key Largo. The proposed budget of $375.1 million, requiring a property tax below the "rollback" rate, has n ot drawn much public co mment since it was first unveiled in July, Commis sioner George Neugent said Tuesday. "The millage rateis already below rollback and there's a good chance we could reduce it even more, by some degree," Neugent said.By law, the county cannot raise the tax rate above the figure of 4.1402 mills the board set in July. That rate is $4.1402 per $1,000 of tax able assessed property value (approximately $1,242 annually for a home with $300,000 of taxable value). Today's 5 p.m. budget hearing takes place at the Murray E. Nelson Government Center, mile marker 102, bayside, in Key Largo. Asecond budget hearing will be held at 5 p.m. Monday at the Marathon Government Center, following a special county commission session calle d to review a grand jury report over an electronics purchasing scandal. The report cites lack of proper oversight by coun ty staff and recommends termination for two top county administrators. The county's final bud get hearing will be held at 5 p.m. Sept. 13 in Key West at the Harvey Gover nment Center. Staff recommendations to add 11 new professional fire-rescue positions seven in Sugarloaf Key and four in Layton will likely be discussed during the hearings. "There have been questions asked about why we are proposing so mething that has not been requested by the residents in these areas," Neugent said. Commissioner Heather Carruthers opposed the new staff positions during July budget sessions on the county's Fire and Ambulance District 1, covering the Lower and Middle Keys. That District 1 fire-and-ambulance budget is proposed for $11.2 million. If approved as submitted, the county budget would be $375.1 million. Of that spending total, $77.2 million would come from property tax levies, down $927,714 from the current year's $78.1 million. The rest would come from fees, grants, revenue sharing and other sources. County Administrator Roman Gastesi said the budget would tap $5.8 million from the reserve fund. With $36.5 million now available in reserves, Gastesi said the reduction is not expected to cause significant pr oblems and lowers the tax burden in a struggling economy. The county proposes to keep the current $404 annual garbage pickup fee for residential properties. Commercial collections will increase by 2.9 percent, a Consumer Price Index number set in the county's contract with franchised haulers. Supplemented by reportsfrom Ryan McCarthyTax levy below rollback;hiring questionedMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comSchool board eyes 5.5 percent tax hikeAfter cutting more than $13 million in operating expenses since 2010, Monroe County School Board Chairman John Dick says he's hopeful that adoption of a 2012-13 budget and tax rate will mark a turning point for the school system finances. Board members were expected to approve a spending plan and tax levy after press time on Tuesday at the third of three required public hearings at Coral Shores High School. Per the budget prepared by district Chief of Staff Ken Gentile, expenditures are projected at $79.5 million, with revenues coming in at $80,086,600. For the last fiscal year, spending hit $81 million against $78.5 million in revenue, resulting in a deficit. The $79.5 million in projected spending for 2012-13 is supported by a tax rate of $3.66 per $1,000 of assessed home value. That's up 5.5 percent from last year's tax rate of $3.565 per $1,000 of assessed home value. The proposed tax rate, for the owner of a $300,000 home, would result in a $1,098 tax bill; compared to $1,069 in the last budget cycle. That also assumes no increase in taxable value for that comparison. "We have needed to get our financial house in order," Dick says, "and we're doing that." The 2010 school year saw the start of a mandatory seven-day furlough program designed to cut personnel expenditures; unionized teachers are still fighting that measure, which they assert violates their contract. Superintendent Mark Porter, who on Aug. 1 replaced Jesus Jara, reports some progress on the labor relations front. Last week Porter and United Teachers of Monroe representatives agreed to cut $400,000 from the $1.1 million supplemental pay budget, collaboratively negotiating how the cuts would be applied. "Nothing has changed other than the superintendent," Dick says of the financial outlook. "We don't have the money to do anything different." Gentile projects an ending fund balance in June 2013 of 5.6 percent, or $4,128,683, and there has already been very preliminary board discussion, assuming that number holds, to scale back on furlough days. "I would hope that we're not doing furlough days next year," Dick says, adding the caveat, "Unless something major happens with the economy."Mandatory furloughs still in spending 2012-13 OUR SCHOOLSworked for the general as a landscaper and the general's wife invited him inside the house for lemonade and cookies in the afternoons, he said. There are many others job opportunities at the prison, including as cooks, drivers, librarians and tutors. Pay starts at 23 cents an hour for all inmates, according to an admission and orientation handbook. At the prison, inmates can also take correspondence courses from Troy State University in such areas as business, art and psychology. But there are strict rules, like at any other prison. On weekdays, inmates get a wake-up call at 5:15 a.m. and it's lights out at 10 p.m. There are limits on visitation and phone calls. There's a dress code and a required work uniform that includes a brown T-shirt. "I wouldn't call it freedom. That's for sure. No mater what kind of prison it is, you don't have any freedom," Miller said. -Reprinted by permissionPrison pay at 23-centsFrom Williams,1A Public Meeti n g s Scheduled by a n d with the City of Ma r atho n fo r Septembe r 2012Plea s e n ote that mo r e tha n o n e Ma r atho n City Cou n cil/Boa r d/Committee membe r may pa r ticipate i n the meeti n g s li s ted.City Cou n cil City Ma n age r Pete Wo r thi n gto n Mayo r Roge r He rns tadt Dick Ram s ay, Vice Mayo r City Atto rn ey s Richa r d Keati n g Cou n cilmembe r G r ay-Robi ns o n Mike Ci n que, Cou n cilmembe r Gi n ge r S n ead, Cou n cilmembe r CITYOFMARATHONSUBJECT : DA TE: TIME: LOCA TION: Nearshore Waters Committee09/06/126:00pm Marathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Hwy.

Publication every Wed. and Sat. and now online at www.keysnet.com EXAMPLE Electricity effort goes back yearsPoll most of today's residents of No Name Key and the answers would likely be similar: "That tiny island fighting over commercial electricity." That's certainly an accurate description of the past 20 years, but in truth, the 1,000-acre island off Big Pine Key has a history richer than many of the 800-plus islands comprising the Florida Keys. Based on surveys he reviewed, Upper Keys-based historian Jerry Wilkinson penned a lengthy account of the goings-on there from as early as 1849, when No Name Key received its name. The story behind the naming is unclear, but Wilkinson writes that by 1870, there were 16 households and 45 inhabitants on No Name -44 more than the one recorded resident on much-larger neighboring Big Pine Key at the time. The majority were Bahamian natives and worked as fishermen, farmers and housewives, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. By 1919, there was a schoolhouse on No Name with 28 students and by the late 1920s, it was home to a ferry landing that brought cars south from Lower Matecumbe Key. The No Name Lodge operated there until at least 1935. Things slowed back down on No Name, Wilkinson writes, when the new Overseas Highway to Key West from the mainland opened on March 29, 1938. By the 1960s, no one was living on the island. In 1969, Robert Eaken was looking for a weekend getaway and happened upon a pair of conch cottages on the water at the back of No Name Key. They were on Bimini Lane, where the No Name Lodge once sat and the ferry docked. "I came down, looked at the property and the view and I thought we could build a house," Eaken said. Eaken said he asked thenCounty Engineer Clifford Bailey about purchasing lots and dredging them in anticipation of bringing commercial electricity to the island. "Two weeks later, he came back and said, 'If you get the federal permit and state permit, Monroe County will issue you a dredge permit. If you subdivide the property into single-family residences,' they would bring power in three years," he said. Eaken did just that -went to county offices and in just 20 minutes was issued a permit to dredge 300 feet of bay bottom and 1,000 feet of upland "for the price of $25 for the permit." He bought 32 lots and sold 30 of them. After dredging, Eaken said Bailey told him that "as soon as there's enough houses to justify bringing [commercial] power, we'll bring it." "I'm 76 [years old] now and I'm still waiting," he said.Early requestsRequests for commercial electricity -generators and solar now power the island -were common from No Name residents during the early 1990s. The Keynoter obtained copies of numerous such inquiries from Keys Energy Services, then City Electric System. No Name residents were repeatedly told commercial power was available if they paid for the poles and line to be run. On March 29, 1992, No Name property owner Monika Buhse sent a letter to City Electric stating "several homeowners ... are interested to get electricity to our island." City Electric sent an April 22, 1992, response stating it would do so at the owners' expense. On June 30, 1993, City Electric sent a letter to resident Ernest Damop saying the utility had completed a "preliminary layout and cost analysis for providing electric" to No Name. The estimated price was $435,000. ANov. 22, 1994, letter to resident Ruth Eaken states the utility is unaware "of any public grants" to finance construction, but that "should you find a source that would provide funding," the poles and lines would get done. Even Alicia Putney -the island's staunchest commercialpower opponent and founder of the group Solar Community of No Name Key -received a letter on Feb. 8, 1995, regarding City Electric's position. "We will provide electrical service to No Name Key if permitting is made possible by the applicable agencies and payment is made to bring the power to the island," Customer Service Supervisor Alex Tejeda wrote. AMay 9, 1995, letter to Putney included an original estimate of $434,700, but said if power poles could be placed in the water along the No Name Key Bridge leading to the island, the project could be done for "between $320,000 and $384,000." It was around this same time that Putney formed the Solar Community of No Name Key, which still exists. She says it has 12 households as members and has an annual meeting to elect officers. The group is not registered as a state corporation.The politicsBy 1996, Monroe County was on the record as objecting to commercial power on No Name. That's when the county adopted its state-mandated 2010 comprehensive plan dealing with land use. Then-County Engineer Dave Koppel sent Keys Energy Engineer Dale Finigan a letter about running electrical lines to the island by attaching conduit to the No Name Key Bridge. "While we feel confident the technical details can be worked out, this issue is a political one," Koppel wrote. "Thus, said approval must come from the Monroe County Commission." On Aug. 2, 1996, then-County Administrator Jim Roberts sent Finigan a letter stating the commission decided on Jan. 18, 1996, "it would not support the extension of electrical service to No Name Key" because of conservation issues. "Also, you should know that the Monroe County 2010 comprehensive plan as adopted has policies which are clearly not in support of such an extension of electric service," he wrote. In 1998, a group known as the Taxpayers for the Electrification of No Name Key requested a decision from then-county Planning Director Timothy McGarry on commercial power. McGarry turned down the request, citing the land plan and state law, a decision affirmed by the advisory Planning Commission. That led to a longrunning lawsuit against the county that was eventually ruled in Monroe's favor in July 2002. Circuit Court Judge Richard Payne ruled that No Name property owners "have no statutory or property right to have electric power extended to their homes." Payne also ruled the owners have no vested right to commercial power because their claim was "based on an implied expectation and therefore fails to support a vested-rights claim."New zoningIn 2001, then-County Commissioner Dixie Spehar motioned to direct staff to create a zoning overlay district designation of "off-grid" encompassing all properties within the boundaries of No Name Key. It passed, 4-0, with Commissioner Murray Nelson absent. The commission's direction led to the passing of a 2001 ordinance creating a "Coastal Barrier Resources System overlay district." Congress created the system in 1982 to protect undeveloped coastal barriers. The new law "prohibited the extension and expansion of specific types of public utilities to or through lands designated as a unit of the coastal barrier resources system." Most of No Name Key is a part of the system. There's been endless back and forth since the Taxpayers for Electrification lawsuit wrapped up in 2002. That includes another long-running debate about whether to sewer the island as part of the county's planned Cudjoe Regional central wastewater system. In June 2009, the County Commission shot down a group of No Name homeowners seeking use of county rights of way to bring Keys Energy electric to the island even though affidavits were signed by the owners of 30 of the island's 43 homes stating a willingness to pay for the service. So the homeowners decided the poles would go on private property. In 2010, Putney sought the advice of the Everglades Law Center in North Palm Beach in an attempt to stop Keys Energy from finalizing a deal to install the poles. She claimed they would disrupt the habitat of the Stock Island tree snail and an herb called Garber's Spurge. Keys Energy said at the time it would move forward with the project, but it took nearly two years to do so. The utility finished installing 60 poles and line in late June, and installed 21 transformers by July 13. The No Name Key Property Owners Association paid $650,000 for the work. Now all that awaits powering up No Name with commercial electricity are decisions from the state Public Service Commission and Third District Court of Appeal, where complaints and counter-complaints have been filed on both sides.Homeowner: County said yes in 1969POWER STRUGGLE ON NO NAME www.keysnet.com By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYLongtime No Name Key resident Robert Eaken describes what used to be a busy area around his waterfront lot.The Bimini Lane property was the site of a ferry landing,and at one time even had a busy lodge and schoolhouse. revealed more than 100 eggs. Beginning on Labor Day the turtle laid six eggs and eight more on Tuesday morning. Turtle Hospital Manager Bette Zirkelbach describes the animal's condition as "guarded." "She was probably coming to the beach to lay her eggs," around the time of the injury, Zirkelbach says, adding that the recent passage of Tropical Storm Isaac could have been a complicating factor. Of the potential baby turtles: "The day they hatch our plan is to fly them back to St. Croix. Ideally they'll hatch in about 60 days from being laid. It's critical we keep the temperature regulated so they're in an incubator type situation." Zirkelbach also says it's crucial to place the eggs, once laid, in sand from St. Croix to preserve the turtles'sense of "nest fidelity," so they know which beach to return to for mating. If it looks like the hawksbill won't survive, Marathonbased veterinarian Doug Mader is standing by to remove the unlaid eggs. The turtle is presently receiving fluids and antibiotics intravenously. "In an endangered species," Mader says, "we want to do what we can to not only save her life, but also the life of all the hundred or so eggs. If we can get her through the next 48 hours, we got a pretty good chance of saving her." Mader says he's, "trying to keep things positive." If everything works out, "She will go back to her home in St. Croix . and hopefully we'll have a happy ending to this story." Richie Moretti founded the Turtle Hospital in 1986; since then the operation has rehabilitated and released more than 2,500 turtles back into the wild; operating out of the former Hidden Harbor Motel, the Turtle Hospital hosts around 65,000 visitors each year.Eggs placed in St. Croix sandFrom Turtle,1A

D Combo solarand grid the greenest?One of the countless longrunning arguments on No Name Key is whether grid-tied solar energy systems are greener than the off-the-grid lifestyle residents have endured or thrived on, depending on whom you ask for many years. On the quiet 1,000-acre Lower Keys island off Big Pine Key, where endangered Key deer lounge peacefully on streets and driveways, the argument is often made against encroaching upon pristine nature. But owners of 32 of 43 homes on No Name have been trying desperately in recent years to bring commercial power to the island, which is free of all utilities. Residents have always desired power, but not necessarily the majority as is the case now. Those residents make the argument that No Name Key as a green island is a fallacy and several local solar-energy experts agree that life there is anything but pristine. Most said No Name residents are harnessing solar energy in the most inefficient way possible, relying on diesel-powered generators and batteries that leak and pollute the island. Asimplified explanation for how off-the-grid solar arrays work is that rooftop panels collect sunlight and transform it into electricity instead of heat. It's then banked in whatever battery setup homeowners have and distributed to the home via inverters. But batteries stop collecting energy once they're full and drain naturally come nightfall. Many homes on No Name are empty most of the year, meaning systems constantly collect energy that never gets used. Lynne Tejada is chief executive officer at Keys Energy Services, the Lower Keys utility No Name homeowners have petitioned on numerous occasions over the years to provide commercial electricity. "I absolutely think interconnection for any solar system is the best way to go, especially for a home that might be vacant for months out of the year," she said. "In the summer months, it's producing kilowatt hours and it has nowhere to go other than storage, and that maxes out." Tejada admits that what electricity No Name could sell back to the grid is a "very small amount," but says it's by far the "cleaner" option. John Morris is a No Name Key resident since 1989 who runs two solar arrays, one in the Keys and a grid-tied system in Pompano Beach. "You won't meet anyone more pro-solar than me, but I'm very much in favor of having commercial electricity on the island," he said. Morris points to the efficiency of a grid-tied system and said he despises the use of batteries on the island. "Batteries are awful in every way. They may leak and they're corrosive and high maintenance and you have to keep replacing them," he said. Anotable exception to the opinions above is Steven Grasley, co-founder of Solaria Design and Consulting Co. in Marathon. He doesn't mince words regarding solar systems on No Name, calling many "the biggest mish-mash of junk." "There are shoestring systems out there since the 80s and other people that have systems designed by people ... that know what they're doing that work incredibly well," Grasley said.Energy auditKey Largo resident John Hammerstrom is a noted environmentalist and solar energy proponent. He's lobbied on behalf of the so-called "solar community" fronted by Putney on No Name. Hammerstrom says that the roughly $650,000 already paid in full to Keys Energy Services to run commercial power lines to the island could have been used to upgrade inefficient solar arrays instead. "If the grid is already there, it makes sense to connect to the grid, but to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to harvest pennies worth of excess solar energy is not very cost effective," he said. "The first thing anybody needs to do when they consider upgrading their system is to make their home as energy efficient as possible," Hammerstrom said. That can be done through an energy audit. But many homes on No Name have been around for years and weren't designed with solar power efficiency in mind. That includes the home of John and Mary Frances Bakke, who moved to No Name in 1997 believing commercial electricity was at least a possibility "There was nothing at closing that ever said that you're going to be solar only," John Bakke said. Bakke's taught himself the ins and outs of solar living and runs a fairly efficient system with large Rolls Surrette batteries and a generator that cranks up automatically as needed. But, Bakke says, the system is inefficient because of its limitations. The batteries max out during the day and drain at night. He said he's run a generator for 13 hours per day in the heat of the summer. "It's disgusting because really truly being solar, you're connected to the grid so when your batteries are full, you can send it back. That's like spilling gas on the ground. That would be stupid to do, but that's not?"Experts agree that's the best solution of allPOWER STRUGGLE ON NO NAMEBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Does Your Pool Need Replastering?Commercial and Residential www.FLKeys-Pools.com The BEST since 1969Gen.

EDITORIALJobs,jobs,jobs issue dominatesLETTERS TO THE EDITORAdd toll to pay for sewersWhat I think about the $4,500 sewer bill I received from Monroe County on Aug. 7. This gives most people like me only 24 days to come up with $4,500. If most people like me, they don't have it, so I sent $100 check to them just to show I'm trying to pay something. Monroe County called me first, then sent my $100 check back saying I must pay the total amount of $4,500 by Aug. 31 or they will add $401 a year to my property taxes for 20 years. If anybody has done the math, that is $401 times 20 years, which is $8.020 or twice the amount of $4,500. This is extortion. I have a good idea. Why don't Monroe County put a toll booth on the road in lower Florida City and charge only a $1 a car for tourists to come down to the Keys; all residents are free. This would in time help Monroe County residents pay sewer bills and for the people who need to pay and pay back the people who already paid. Also, after years of charging tourist tolls and sewer bills are paid for, Monroe County could use the income to maintain U.S. 1, Overseas Highway, that is always in need for continual repairs. I know Monroe County probably won't do the toll because they really worry more about upsetting the tourist than helping Monroe County residents. Also, if Monroe County Code Enforcement didn't make me and several thousand other families tear out their downstairs apartments (enclosures), I and they would have had money from income from renting to help pay for sewer bill and higher taxes, blow out of control windstorm insurance, higher than Florida average gas prices etc. I would like to know how many Monroe county employees have downstairs enclosures, but are above the same laws they enforce against us? I feel sorry for single parents and parents with kids; I can't afford to live here being single. I don't know how they do it with kids. Some honest people should run for these Monroe County offices and end this b--t. Bruce Eggett Summerland KeyMore land preservedI am very pleased to announce that the city of Layton is now the owner of an additional 52.63 acres of conservation land on the north side of South Layton Drive. If it were not for the tenacity of Frank and Claudia Riley, the city may have not had this opportunity. Mr. Peter Riley of Zane Grey Creek Ltd. donated the property to the city for only closing costs to transfer title to the city. The City Council approved the title transfer and costs involved in March. City staff, along with city attorneys, spent much time coordinating to have the property appraised and environmentally surveyed, and a boundary survey and title search done, to assure there was no risk in acquiring the land. The funds used to pay the costs are from our restricted infrastructure funds that come from several interlocal agreements with the state and county. The city should be very proud to have such an acquisition to further protect our sensitive lands. Staff is planning to commemorate and dedicate the land at our 50th anniversary celebration in early 2013. Myself, the City Council and staff are proud to state that the entire city of Layton is now more than 50 percent protected conservation land that will never be developed (there are 84.95 total acres of land in Layton.) Thank you again to Mr. Pete Riley. Norman Anderson Layton mayorLabor Day a good symbol of what's been lost, and much to be gained While more workers rested on a well-deserved day off this Labor Day, about 12.8 million more are still searching for work in a slow-motion economy. The workforce, the cornerstone of the American economy, is slightly healthier than last year with the national unemployment rate down to 8.3 percent from 9.1 percent. Fewer discouraged workers have thrown in the towel on the job hunt, with 852,000 dropping out of the labor force that's 267,000 fewer than last year. Still, a staggering one out of every two 2012 college graduates will be jobless or underemployed. President Obama's remarks earlier this year on the shape of the private sector masked the reality of many frustrated and tired Americans. National unemployment has decreased, but a cooperative, bipartisan effort needs to be demonstrated in Washington to put more Americans back to work. Politicians can no longer afford to dance around the matter. Next to healthcare, employment coupled with the incessant mantra of "jobs, jobs, jobs" continues to be a hot-button issue this election year. This Labor Day fell between the Republican and Democratic national conventions, with both parties scrambling to make a winning case for their candidate. It's a race that squares off to one question: Who can create more jobs? Though the local unemployment rate has rebounded since 2010 from an alarming 12.3 percent to 9.5 percent in Miami-Dade County and 10.4 percent to 8.1 percent in Broward County, figures are at a plateau after steady improvement this year, with depressed construction hiring acting as a drag throughout the region. Afew bright spots are evident here and there amid the troubling numbers. In July, Broward employers overall added 4,800 payroll positions compared to a year ago, after falling in May and June. But the overall picture remains gloomy. While employers added 5,600 positions in July in Miami-Dade compared to the prior year, it was the worst hiring number since September 2010. It's not much better at the state level. Mid-August numbers showed Florida's overall employment rate, which has been making strides since the darker years in the recession, still hovers above the national average at 8.8 percent. There's still a long way to go. Some promises are finally coming through. The tourism industry continues to serve as South Florida's breadwinner, generating $17 billion in revenue and 176,000 jobs. The numbers have been especially strong in the Florida Keys, where tourism is by far the largest economic engine driving jobs. In the spirit of how Labor Day began protecting workers from unsafe working conditions and unreasonably low pay Florida needs to clean up its shoddy reputation for protecting workers'rights. The state recently ranked dead last for wage-theft protection against corner-cutting employers. The welfare of employees, especially those laboring in the blue-collar sector, should never be compromised to save a few bucks. Public-sector unions, particularly those that represent our police, firefighters and teachers should continue to bargain for deserved but not excessive benefits. The Miami HeraldCommunity caresLast Saturday night, a benefit for my husband Bob and I took place at Kirk of the Keys Presbyterian Church. It was so great. The tropical storm didn't stop us. Even though my church is Unity in Key West, when people ask me what's your church in Marathon, I have to say I love them all. This community is blessed with people from everywhere and all kinds of faiths. It's awesome. We all love God and want to help one another and do the acts of love Jesus taught when he walked among us. Words can't express how grateful we are for the efforts put into this benefit by many people. The loving kindness shown through the food, music and great fellowship together is so deeply appreciated. God is good and so is this community. We wouldn't want to live anywhere else. In a few months, come and visit our remodeled stores.

Assistant Monroe County Attorney Derek Howard told the Keynoter the county would still seek to have the power poles removed and will amend its complaint before Audlin to include a count of civil trespass. "Right now the case is in limbo given the fact the infrastructure was installed on No Name Key. We were awaiting info from the surveyor," Howard said. By Aug. 7, Keys Energy had sent electricity coursing through the new grid to ensure it functions. There are some opponents to commercial electricity on No Name Key, and they're fighting as hard as ever to keep it at bay. The battle over commercial power has been raging for decades. Some, like longtime Bimini Lane resident Robert Eaken, have been trying to bring it for around 40 years. "When I see the poles coming down the street, I'll probably turn three cartwheels," he said well before Keys Energy began construction. Keys Energy has maintained the PSC requires it to provide power to any customers seeking it within its service territory. That's why it finally installed the poles at the request of 32 of 43 No Name property owners. Circuit Court Judge David Audlin denied the county's request for a preliminary injunction hearing to stop the installation, and an Aug. 29 hearing on the matter was postponed. Meanwhile, pending actions before the PSC and Third District Court of Appeal deal with whom the PSC or Monroe County has final jurisdiction over electrifying No Name. Howard said he expects the PSC and Third DCAto issue separate rulings on jurisdiction.Judge denied injunction to stop power polesFrom No Name,1AKey West man charged with fleeing copsAn early morning speedster on Stock Island was arrested Monday after police say he tried to elude a sheriff's deputy. Leo Haney Jr., 23, was arrested and booked into jail on charges of fleeing from deputies and driving recklessly. Deputy John Gabay said when Haney's vehicle passed, radar clocked the speed at 97 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. In the arrest report, Gabay says that when he turned on his lights and siren to pull over the speedster, the driver turned off the vehicle's headlights, sped up and turned onto 3rd Street, Stock Island. Gabay reported following the vehicle, finally pulling up behind the car, where Haney jumped out and ran, leaving a girlfriend sitting in the passenger seat. Afoot pursuit resulted in Haney being stopped, handcuffed and taken into custody. Haney reportedly told police he had no driver's license. Asubsequent check found his license had been suspended for five years. The driver was charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, resisting arrest and operating a vehicle while suspended as a habitual traffic offender.Naples man arrestedAlan McEnergy, 45, of Naples was arrested over the weekend. Police say he was driving drunk and recklessly on Sugarloaf Key. Deputy Greg Korzen reported clocking an orangecolored Camaro doing 96 mph in a 45 mph zone near mile marker 18.5. When the deputy turned on lights and siren, he reportedly saw the vehicle swerveing across both white and double-yellow lines, swerving into oncoming traffic and at a high rate of speed. McEnergy finally pulled over at mile marker 20 and told the deputy he was a mile marker 80 heading to his hotel in Marathon. McEnergy failed field sobriety exercises and refused a breathalyzer test. He was charged with unlawful speed, driving under the influence, reckless driving, passing in a nopassing zone, failing to drive in a single lane and refusing to sign a civil citation. The Naples driver was booked into jail.CRIMEBRIEFS www.keysnet.com www.keysnet.com


In Florida, low-wage jobs are leading the jobs recovery, while construction hiring is down about 50 percent from past peaks, a loss of 270,000 jobs. Florida's employment recovery hasn't brought back many wellpaying jobs. That's the conclusion of a new study timed for Labor Day showing the gaps of the Sunshine State's slow but unmistakable bounce back in hiring. And it reflects a national trend, driven largely by the ripple effects of the collapsed housing market. The three industries that account for 63 percent of all minimumwage jobs in Florida hospitality, retail and healthcare also have been leading the recovery, according to the study by Florida International University's Research Institute on Social and Eco-nomic Policy. Meanwhile, two sources of better-paying jobs construction and government have been in retreat during the recovery. Construction hiring is down about 50 percent from past peaks, a loss of 270,000 jobs. With property-tax revenue down, governments also have been cutting their payrolls. "In other recessions, public jobs kept growing during the downturn and the recovery," said Bernardo Ose-guera, an author of the study. He said the loss of about 41,000 government jobs in Florida since 2007 put a "big brake on the recovery." Not to mention the decline in government spending in the private sector. "When you build a school," he said, "you create a lot of jobs." Despite regaining about 180,000 payroll positions in the last three years, Florida is still down nearly 700,000 jobs from peak hiring in 2007. Asimilar study by the National Employment Law Project found low-wage jobs made up 21 percent of the losses during the recession, but 58 percent of the regained jobs during the recession. High-wage jobs remain in balance: 19 percent of the losses, and 20 percent of the gains. But mid-wage jobs took the biggest hit: 60 percent of the losses during the recession, and only 22 percent of the recovery gains. That's not typical of a recovery, and speaks to the severe losses in the construction industry, said Anastasia Christmana senior policy analyst with the NELP. "The construction sector accounts for a large chunk of mid-wage jobs,''she said. Sean Snaith, an economist at the University of Central Florida, noted Florida saw an early rebound in tourism and retail jobs as consumer spending crept back. But business spending remains down, which is holding back hiring in better paying professional jobs. Those should return as the economy rebounds. But the construction jobs are another matter. "Those construction jobs that were lost many of them aren't coming back,''Snaith said. Wednesday,September 5,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com Business Police investigate timeshare fraudAKey Largo business owner is the apparent victim of both identity theft and unfortunate coincidence. Virginia Pennell, who owns Sunshine Title of the Keys Inc., found out about three weeks ago that someone is using bogus company letterhead in a scam to defraud out-ofstate timeshare owners. Then, a story made the news this week about a woman arrested on a mortgage fraud charge. That woman, Rose Sandrie of Jacksonville, owns an unrelated company on Cudjoe Key named Sunshine Title. She is accused of defrauding PNC Bank out of around $825,000 and netting $1.4 million from the alleged fraud. Inevitably, clients began calling Pennell asking if Sandrie was her employee since the company names are so similar. "We have no relation to these folks," Pennell said. But while she's able to maintain a sense of humor, what Pennell is going through is putting her reputation at stake. About seven people have called her in recent weeks saying a woman named Jessie, who said she works for Sunshine Title of the Keys Inc., asked them for money. Apparently, "Jessie" is telling the people that Sunshine Title of the Florida Keys Inc. would broker the sales of their timeshare condominiums. At least one timeshare owner sent "Jessie" as much as $4,000. It's not clear where the money was sent. "Jessie" uses at least three last names on the letters Jessie Briarwood, Jessie Carmell and Jessie Gilman. Each letter says she is the purchasing agent, and the buyer is a man named Peter T. Langlois. All of the targets of the scam are from out of the county and state. Pennell discovered what was happening after a few of the people who received letters went to the company's real website and contacted her directly. "The first lady who called, I kind of blew it off," Pennell said. "Then three or four more people called, and I thought, OK, this is really scary.'" "Jessie" has even gone as far as to direct the scam's targets to the Florida Department of Financial Services'website to show them Pennell's insurance license number for verification. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is investigating. "They're using fictitious letterhead with my name and address and they are perpetrating their crime," Pennell said. The letters are signed by "Jessie," and a phone number is provided for people to call to find out where to send the money. It is not clear where "Jessie" is operating from. The number she provided in the bogus letters (305) 414-3571 is a Keys phone number. The Reporter called it several times. The first call went to the voice mail of a woman saying she was Jessie who worked for Sunshine Title of the Keys Inc. Amessage was left asking who she was and why she said she worked for the company. The voice-mail greeting was removed later in the day. Subsequent calls went directly to voice mail. Detective Robert Dosh said most of the targets of the scam did not send the fraudster any money. He said most of the would-be victims he's spoken to so far live in California. Unfortunately, Dosh said the Sheriff's Office is seeing more and more of these types of scams. Identity theft victims should call the Sheriff's Office. "These types of scams are not that uncommon," Dosh said. "We just have to investigate them and hopefully stop them before people lose money."

Cane defenders came up with three interceptions, including Coral Shores'only touchdown of the second half, and a fumble recovery to hold off Solid Rock's capable Eagles. "It wasn't pretty but I loved the effort," said Hurricane head coach Ed Holly. "There were times when they might have given up but they never did. They played hard until the end." Coral Shores'offensive scores came on a 10-yard run by junior Eddie Dunn, a 40-yard run by senior Jimmy Rhyne and a 20-yard field goal by Paul Pauchey. The Canes delivered the final blow with 4:15 left in a 17-8 game when senior defensive end Will Ismer tipped an Eagle pass that was intercepted by sophomore cornerback George Jacobsen, who returned it 45 yards for a touchdown. Holly said he was proud of the Hurricane players and coaches for being able to notch the win at home despite losing two practice days to Tropical Storm Isaac. The Hurricanes (1-0) play their first game in the South Florida Football Conference at 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Archbishop Curley (0-1). Rhyne delivered several big plays in the season opener, intercepting Solid Rock on the game's first play from scrimmage.He immediately followed up with a 29-yard reception from Hurricane senior quarterback Addison Duma-Kenny.Duma-Kenny later found fullback Kodi Roberts with a 21-yard toss on a play-action throw down to the Solid Rock 11-yard line, setting up Dunn's scoring run on a counter run at 7:41. Defensive tackle Tom Johnson led a stand in the second quarter after a fumbled punt reception by the Canes put Solid Rock in business at the Cane 27. After two strong runs and a first down by Eagle back Roman Brown, Johnson made a stop for a 1-yard gain. Another stop by the Cane front put the Eagles in a fourth-and-1 at the Coral Shores 6. Ismer broke through to make a sack for a 4-yard loss to end the threat.Cane defenders grabbed three interceptionsCORAL SHORES FOOTBALLKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores halfback Eddie Dunn (34) picks up a block from center Jake Niedbalski (52) for a gain in the Hurricanes' 24-8 win over Miami's Solid Rock Academy in the season opener Friday.Dunn scored the Canes'first touchdown. Coral Shores plays at home against Archbishop Curley this week.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comConchs score impressive 42-14 victoryTrying to build off an impressive 42-14 opening game victory over Miami High, the Key West High School football team will play host to North Miami Beach at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. North Miami Beach lost its opener, 42-6, to Northwestern, which is ranked 10th in South Florida by the Miami Herald The teams were scoreless after the first quarter, but the Chargers were outscored, 28-0, in the second and had minus-6 rushing yards for the game. Key West will come into the game with the confidence befitting a team that ran for 388 yards in last Friday night's victory at Curtis Park in Miami. "I was impressed with the way we ran the ball, and we did a nice job of blocking up front," said Johnny Hughes, who made his debut as coach. Fullback Elliott Valdez ran for 118 yards, most of them straight forward in his bull-rush style, and Dorian Cannon had 100 yards and a touchdown in five carries. "We kept pounding up the middle and they wore down," Hughes said. Outside threats Deonte Stemage and Norman Lopez also ran for big yardage in a triple-option offense orchestrated by senior quarterback Donald Roberts, who had a TD pass, a TD run and a twopoint conversion run. "Donald did a good job controlling the game, and he made big plays," Hughes said. The Conchs ran out to a 28-0 lead. The first score came on a 21-yard run by Lopez that capped a 56-yard opening drive. Stemage ran for the two-point conversion to make it 8-0. After a Miami fumble, it was soon 16-0. Stemage ran 19 yards to the 1 yard line, where he had the ball stripped. JackFirst road win since Oct.2010By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALLDefense puts Fins in the win columnFive forced turnovers, a goal line stand and quality special teams play led the Marathon High School football team to a hard-earned 13-7 season opening victory Friday over Highlands Christian Academy in Deerfield Beach. Coach Lance Martin said the Dolphins played a "bend but don't break" style of defense against a sizable Knights roster. "We took our chances early blitzing often to put some pressure on them and then we kind of sat back on them," he said. "They were huge and fast; we played very well on special teams and played solid defense when we needed to." The Knights managed 203 total yards and Martin said their running back rushed for over 100 yards. "But when you add in their negative plays, they only ended up with 31 yards rushing," he said. The Dolphins managed just 154 yards of offense against the Knights, but Martin said the team put together a handful of quality drives throughout the game. "We moved the ball, but we kept stalling when it was important," he said. Quarterback Roberto Perez was 7-for-9 passing for 69 yards, and had nine carries for 28 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Patrick Ryan had three catches for 32 yards and Shemar Fantroy two catches for 34 yards. Dominic carried five times for 28 yards and Ian Almodovar was largely bottled up, rushing 16 times for only 29 yards. The teams exchanged three-and-outs on their opening drives, but the Dolphins' next possession went 65 yards on 10 plays deep into Knights territory. Riley Durkin missed on a 27-yard field goal attempt to keep the game scoreless. Highlands Christian scored on the ensuing drive on a 10yard pass play. The drive featured a 63-yard pass play into Dolphins territory. The score was 7-0 after the extra point. Marathon was forced to punt on its ensuing possession, but was blocked at its own 12-yard line. The Knights took possession and drove the ball within a foot of the goal line near halftime. "They were actually on the one foot line and got a negative yardage play," Martin said. "We stopped them on the 4-yard line on a fourth down and goal. It was a big momentum swing even though we were down by seven."Marathon senior Connor Boyd blocked a Highlands punt after its first possession, which Cooper Chaplin returned 40 yards to the Knights'5-yard line. "They got the opening kickoff of the half and ended up having to punt, and we blocked it, by Connor Boyd. Cooper Chaplin ran it back 40 yards to the 5-yard line. Two plays later Roberto Perez scored on a quarterback sneak from one yard out." Marathon trailed 7-6 after a missed extra point attempt. The Dolphins kicked off and forced another Knights punt from their own 2-yard line. Boyd blocked another punt that Marathon recovered on the 1-yard line. Perez scored on another quarterback keeper to make it 13-7 after a Durkin extra point. The Dolphins held on for the win, forcing a fumble on a Highlands drive inside the Marathon 10-yard line in the fourth quarter. Marathon (1-0) is slated to visit LaSalle High School in Miami Friday at 7:30 p.m. By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALL Post Isaac: Snapper bite is heavyAs anticipated, the post Isaac bite is very good. All the snapper species responded positively to the churning up of the water. And, it even spurred some of the grouper into biting. The reef action is taking place in 60 to 90 feet of water with abundant quantities of yellowtail and even quite a few mutton showing in the slicks. Standard baits, such as small pieces of ballyhoo and silversides, are working. On the patches, the mangrove bite improved with lots of medium to large fish being taken with either chunk baits or small live ballyhoo and pinfish. Good numbers of nice size cero mackerel are taking the ballyhoo as well. These are excellent for both the smoker and the grill. On the wrecks, the mutton bite has gotten fairly consistent, with many in the 10to 12-pound range. Again, live ballyhoo is the bait of choice. Jack crevalle, amberjack and decent size king mackerel are also biting on the wrecks. Live blue runners are the ticket for the AJ's and the kings. Offshore, the dolphin bite has slowed dramatically. But, to make up for their absence, the blackfin tuna are responding very well at the humps. Lately, they've been feeding on large schools of sardines in the area. Captains catch the sardines with a Sabiki and drift them through much like they would use pilchards. The tuna are taking trolled baits just as well. However, the ones eating the sardines are much larger (15 to 20 pounds) than those on the troll, which average 8 to 10 pounds.Yellowtail closureAs you may have read elsewhere, National Marine Fisheries Service has implemented a commercial yel-Yellowtail,mutton hit on ballyhoo and silversidesFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSChris Johnson Captain'sColumn See Fishing,2B Marathon local,Slim Jim Bridger, shows off his 24-inch mutton snapper caught with Capt.

Now parents can ask the same question about their teensroad performance. The bumper sticker and smart-phone app are the brainchild of father and mobile app designer Michael McManigal of Cooper City in Broward County.For $15 the first year and $10 every year thereafter, parents register the license plate number of their childs car on the website www.howismy kiddriving.com .Membership comes with two bumper stickers that say: How is my KID driving? Push Text my tag #. Drivers who have the free Push Text app downloaded on their iPhones or Androids can then punch in the tag number and send their thoughts via a oneway, anonymous text.This puts a little bit of yourself in the passenger seat as a parent, said McManigal, who came up with the concept when, on a long July drive home from South Carolina, he noticed all the Hows My Driving? stickers and thought parents could use something similar. Once [teen drivers] leave the driveway and turn the corner and theyre out of sight, no ones policing them.Just days after its official launch late last month, the program is winning both accolades for ingenuity and concern from parents and road safety officials alike. The fear (aside from trusting strangers to be honest tattlers) is that asking drivers to jot down a license plate number and text their thoughts encourages one of the roads most dangerous practices: Texting and driving.What youre asking people to do is text while driving, said state Rep. Irv Slosberg of Boca Raton, a longtime highway safety advocate who lost a teenage daughter in a 1996 car accident. I applaud this father for doing something about teen driving, but I think it can be dangerous.The innovation touches a national nerve motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, who are four times more likely than older drivers to crash, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And they fare no better in Florida, where teens make up just 5 percent of the driving population but are involved in 9 percent of fatal crashes, state highway safety figures show. Thats why safe driving advocates are quick to give McManigals idea kudos.IngeniusI applaud this gentlemans tenacity for creating a bumper sticker targeted toward the teen market. What hes created is quite ingenious, said John Pecchio, manager of AAAAuto Club Souths traffic and teen driver safety programs. But we would recommend that he proceed with caution. Focusing on getting the tag number and texting the message is our only concern. It could add to the distracted driving dangers. McManigals hope is that drivers would be responsible enough to wait until theyre stopped at a safe place before texting, and either memorize or quickly jot down the sixnumber tag. But he agreed that many motorists likely wont be so careful. That is an issue, he said. Part of me likes the idea. Maybe it will make kids think before they drive aggressively or distracted, said Edith Peters, traffic safety specialist for the Florida Department of Transportation. I would like it better if it had a warning at the bottom discouraging texting and driving. In response, McManigal agreed to do just that, saying he would add a warning on the next batch of stickers. He may have a more difficult time overcoming the complaints of new drivers like Sari Cutler, 16, of Delray Beach. Frankly, she doesnt like the How is my KID driving? concept at all. Its stereotyping. Not all teens are bad drivers, said the Spanish River High School junior, fresh from getting a learners permit at the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles office. And if youre texting about my driving, arent you being hypocritical by driving and texting?Benefit of doubtBut single mom Denise Zoub, of Boca Raton, said she would appreciate any feedback, positive or negative, about her 15-year-old sons driving habits. Though shed give him the benefit of the doubt if he disputed a texters version of events, the app would at least allow her to question him about it and let him know people are watching. Amonitoring tool would be great these days, Zoub said. Once theyre on their own, you can tell them anything you want, but it goes right out the window sometimes, especially if they have their friends in the car. Handing a young driver the keys to the car, especially amid a backdrop of such scary teen driving statistics, can make any parent anxious. Just ask Janice Vasallo, a Pembroke Pines mother to two teens, including a novice 16-year-old driver.Its scary when you cant be in the car with them anymore, but sometimes you have to let the umbilical cord out a little bit, said Vasallo, who is registering for the How is my KID driving? program.Idea gets kudos, also concerns about textingBy NICOLE BROCHUSun-SentinelPARENTING Sun-Sentinel photo by SARAH DUSSAULTMike McManigal of Cooper City in shows a bumper sticker that is part of his How is my kid drivingprogram,an app he developed that allows parents to monitor reports of their kidsdriving habits.
