On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder filed a response in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia signaling he no longer opposes Florida's amended voting plan. That will reduce the number of early voting days from 14 to 8, but extends the hours that early voting sites will operate from 8 hours to 12 hours. Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer was the lone holdout among his peers in the five Florida counties that fall under Justice Department jurisdiction. He opposes reducing the early voting window. On Friday, Sawyer told The Keynoter he felt "a little disheartened. All along, I thought the Justice Department has been an advocate in this by not preclearing [the shorter window]. This is retrogressive and does discriminate against minorities." Sawyer said he will abide by the ruling that comes down from the U.S. District Court in D.C. But, he says, the fight continues to protect voting rights. Sawyer said the American Civil Liberties Union "will be there to represent me in this case." Sawyer said reducing the number of days for early voting will hurt minorities. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner began pressuring the five counties under Justice Department review to adopt the same eight-day early voting implemented in Florida's 62 other countiesJustice Dept. signals acceptance of Florida's curbs on early votingMONROE COUNTYBy WAYNE MARKHAMwmarkham@keynoter.comSee Early voting,3ABIG HAUL Photo by GEORGE POVEROMOAfter a seven-hour fight that covered 26 miles from hookup to landing,Carl Grassi landed this 380-lb.swordfish off Islamorada,fishing with saltwater TV guide and broadcaster George Poveromo.Read the story, 5A The public is invited to tour foreign and domestic naval ships that will berth at the U.S. Navy's Mole Pier Sept.18-19.The last time the public was invited to the Mole,they filled a VIP area for the September,2011 commissioning of the USS Spruance missile-guided destroyer. Warships from a halfdozen countries will visit Key West Sept. 18-19 with vessels and crews hailing from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States. It's part of the U.S. Navy's UNITAS exercise, a long-running joint naval exercise designed to prepare participating nations in cooperative response to a variety of situations, both military and humanitarian. UNITAS, Latin for "unity," has been hosted in other ports and other nations in the past. This year, the 53rd UNITAS exercises will take place off the coast of the Southernmost City. "Hosting this many ships at once at Naval Air Station Key West is truly an exciting opportunity-something Key West hasn't seen at Truman Waterfront since the naval station was decommissioned in the 1970s," says NAS Commanding Officer Capt. Patrick Lefere. Key City boasts a rich seafaring heritage, which includes home to pirates, salvors, Civil War blockades, the rum trade and more. Key West Harbor has the second largest protected anchorage in the western Caribbean, second to Havana Harbor. UNITAS will last two weeks and include vessels from both North, Central and South American nations, including Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, the United States, along with the United Kingdom, which has a long history in the area including Bermuda's rich maritime heritage. Naval Air State Key West spokeswoman Trice Denny says the public is welcome to tour ships at the Navy's Mole Pier on the Truman Waterfront from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 18. The following day, Sept. 19, also between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., is set aside for prearranged group tours of no more than 25.

Peary Court, at 24.18 acres, currently has 160 housing units that serve as military housing; the U.S. Navy, working through private housing partners Balfour Beatty Communities and Southeast Housing LLC, wants to sell the land and houses to private developer White Street Partners. White Street has agreed to construct the 48 additional units to comply with city affordable housing mandates associated with new development, or in this case, development that's new to the city by virtue of transferring from military to private ownership. City Planner Don Craig initially suggested a zoning density of 9 units per acre, but with input from the commissioners, scaled that back to a fractional density of 8.6 units per acre, which yields a maximum of 208 units; that cover the 160 existing plus 48 new. Development in the Keys is tied to hurricane evacuation clearance time; the state Department of Economic Opportunity, which absorbed the former Department of Community Affairs, has committed to provide the 48 building permit allocations needed for the new construction.Commissioner Jimmy Weekley pointed out that the city's affordable housing requirement is 30 percent of total development, whereas the 48 proposed units amount to only 23 percent. "I don't understand DEO," he said, in reference to the state's ruling that the 30 percent rule didn't apply to Peary Court. "They bend the rules and I've got an issue with that personally," Weekly said.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 Cou n ty cut s millage r ate fo r 2012-13Costs of improving firerescue services could push high-value communities Duck Key and Key Haven into the arms of nearby cities, Monroe County Commissioners said Wednesday at the first 20122013 budget hearing. "I am very concerned about the consequences," Mayor David Rice said of "providing 24-hour professional coverage in areas where the homeowners don't seem to identify the need." The most contentious issue at the Key Largo hearing on the county's proposed $375.1 million budget centered on adding new fulltime fire fighters and ambulance crews at the understaffed Layton-Long Key and Sugarloaf Key stations. Anticipating pushback to 11 new paid positions, County Administrator Roman Gastesi and Fire Chief Jim Callahan suggested waiting several months before hiring the responders, saving $225,251 in the new budget. Commissioner Heather Carruthers described that as an attempt "to make it seem more palatable this year." "We'd still end up in the long run carrying the cost of these full-time positions," Carruthers said. Fire-rescue costs in unincorporated Monroe County in the Middle and Lower Keys are funded by taxes assessed for Fire and Ambulance District 1. Under a budget and tax rate given tentative approval Wednesday, the county cut its overall proposed millage from 4.14 to 4.098 mills. That rate is about $4.10 per $1,000 of taxable assessed property value (approximately $1,230 annually for a home with $300,000 of taxable value). Of that 4.098 mills, 2.8634 mills would fund District 1 fire-rescue services, generating $12,093,991 in ad-valorem property taxes. Unincorporated Key Largo has an independent fire-rescue district; other areas are covered by incorporated cities like Marathon and Islamorada. Duck Key and Key Haven, now in the unincorporated county, have high property values that generate significant county taxes. If District 1 taxes supporting county fire-rescue go too high for areas that could join Marathon or Key West, Commissioner George Neugent told staff, "You're going to drive the annexation movement." Monroe County, which once relied solely on volunteers for its fire-rescue system, continues to suffer chronic shortages in statecertified volunteers, Callahan told commissioners. "It's been tough to recruit new volunteers," Callahan said, citing extensive training and time demands. The county needs the new paid responders to provide "a minimum level of fire and EMS," he said. "There is no fat." Callahan said he understands concern about property taxes but "that's a taxation issue, not a fire-fighting issue." If the county loses property taxes from Duck Key, Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said, there won't be money to pay new staff. "Don't load us up with a lot of full-time fire fighters that we would [then] have to let go," Murphy said. Commissioners tentatively accepted the partial-year plan for District 1, but said the discussion will continue at budget hearings at 5 p.m. Monday at the Marathon Goverment Center; and 5 p.m. Thursday at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.Concerns raised about adding fire servicesMONROE COUNTY In Loving Memory of Mary Barnett Warner 3/23/29 9/8/11 Mom, we miss your presence in our lives everyday; but your Love still lives on in our hearts forever.

Skeeter district eyes tax hike The Florida Keys Mosquito Control board outside of Commissioner Phil Goodman -has made it clear it's willing to raise taxes next fiscal year in an effort to balance the budget and curb precipitous declines in cash reserves over recent years. Director Michael Doyle told the Keynoter Thursday he's aiming to ensure that increase is smaller than anticipated when the board meets Wednesday in Key West for the first of two public budget hearings. The board approved a tentative tax rate of $58.37 per $100,000 of assessed property value on July 24, which is 11.38 percent over the rollback rate of $48.37. It would raise $10 million in property taxes in fiscal year 2012-13. Rollback is the rate necessary to generate the same amount of tax dollars as the current year. At the $58.37 rate, the owner of a $300,000 house in Monroe County would pay $175.11 in the coming fiscal year. That same owner paid $145.08 in the current year. Doyle said he's aiming to cut operating costs by $500,000. That would lower the total budget from $14.76 million to $14.26 million. Comptroller William Southcott told the Key n oter that would lower the proposed tax rate to $51.17 per $100,000 of assessed value or $153.51 for the owner of a $300,000 house compared to $145.08 in the current year. Doyle said a large savings would come from the district's $1.2 million chemical budget. He said using a new larvicide sprayed from helicopters could reduce a $544,000 line item in that budget by 20 percent, or $108,800. "We're looking at reducing the chemical budget, essentially...by using a fiveyear average of each item." Doyle said other potential savings next fiscal year include: An auto-loader created by staff to re-supply chemicals for spraying into helicopters, a new phone system and database, and employee attrition (three to five employees at $300,000). Wednesday's budget hearing is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the district's 5224 College Road office. The final budget hearing is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 19 at the district office on 107th Street in Marathon. Budget hearing set Wednesday in Key WestMOSQUITO CONTROLBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comLabor induced to salvage eggsStaff of the Marathonbased Turtle Hospital on Friday decided to induce labor on an injured hawksbill sea turtle that was flown to the Middle Keys from St. Croix last week. The egg-laden mother was found in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Isaac with deep wounds possibly from a fishing gaffe, fluid in her lungs and a blood infection. Earlier in the week she laid 14 of her 100-plus eggs. Veterinarian Doug Mader is overseeing treatment of the endangered turtle, named Good Hope. "She is in stable condition but still very sick," Turtle Hospital Manager Bette Zirkelbach told the Keynoter on Friday. On Wednesday, Mader administered a different type of antibiotic to the 123-pound reptile, designed to clear up the blood infection. Mader said when he first examined Good Hope on Sunday, 80 percent of her white blood cells were deemed "toxic;" that figure is now down to 20 percent. Once a turtle egg is laid, it takes about 60 days to hatch. The eggs laid earlier in the week, along with those collected as labor progresses, are being incubated in a tank containing sand from St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Turtles demonstrate what's called "nest fidelity," and although little is known about how that process works, exposure to their native sand helps guide the future turtles back to their mating grounds. Once hatched, the goal is to transport the babies and hopefully a recovered mother back to St. Croix. Richie Moretti founded the nonprofit Turtle Hospital in 1986; since then the operation has rehabilitated and released back into the wild more than 2,500 turtles. Located in the former Hidden Harbor Motel, the Turtle Hospital hosts around 65,000 visitors each year.Injured hawksbill recovering,but still very sick'MARATHON Kirk of the KeysOverseas Highway at 89th Street Marathon MM 51.5 743-4256Staffed Childrens Sunday School & NurserySunday Services 9 a.m. Contemporary11 a.m. Traditionalwww.kirkofthekeys.com Marathon Church Of God800 74th Street,OceanSunday Worship & Children's Church 10:45AM Sunday Evening Worship 6:00PMWednesday Night Bible Study 6:30PMA Pentecostal Ministry with a Prophetic Voice" For God so loved the world..." and so do we!

You're either for commercial electricity or a g ainst it and the two sides don't spend a lot of time makin g nice with one another. As one resident put it, to pen the lon g -runnin g sa g a would "read like a Carl Hiaasen novel." From verbal threats to alle g ed destruction of g enerators and drainin g of cisterns, the dislike amon g residents on opposite sides of the issue is palpable. It's been that way since the mid-1990s, when proelectricity residents say Alicia Putney moved to the island and eventually started the Solar Community of No Name Key, a g roup of 12 homeowners. Brad and Beth Vickrey didn't move to No Name until late 2006, but they've taken up the cause for commercial electricity homes are now powered by solar and g enerators with a ven g eance. Beth has boxes full of documents on the issue and Brad doesn't mince words when placin g blame. "They've g one back and forth as to who was g oin g to pay for the power. They waited too lon g and Alicia Putney g ot here and hijacked the island," he said. "Essentially, she didn't want Galleon Bay built and she did everythin g she could to prevent it. Stoppin g electricity was one of them." Galleon Bay is a proposed 14-home development on No Name whose owners were denied buildin g permits in 2001 and eventually became involved in a lon g -runnin g and still on g oin g land-takin g case a g ainst Monroe County. Putney's house is adjacent to the 10.5-acre site. Putney denies Vickrey's claim, sayin g she g ot involved with Galleon Bay because the would-be developer proposed buildin g commercial fishin g docks near her property. "Supposedly they were g oin g to put this multi-vessel dock and dock them throu g hout the canal system where they owned land. It had nothin g to do with the solar community," she said, addin g the entire community backed her on that issue. Ill feelin g s toward Putney are a common theme when discussin g the source of animosity with pro-electricity residents. Mary Frances Bakke said residents have lon g been upset with Putney's involvement in a 2001 county ordinance that "discoura g es" development and extension of pubic utilities to areas like No Name in the federal Coastal Barrier Resources System. Con g ress created the CBRS, as it's known, in 1982 as a means to preserve coastal barrier habitat alon g the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Putney was on the county's advisory Plannin g Commission in 2001 and voted on the ordinance despite livin g on No Name. "Our nei g hbors feel that had it not been for [Putney's] manipulation, misrepresentation and politickin g that it would not have happened. That has caused a lot of confusion," Bakke said. Putney denies wron g doin g involvin g that 2001 ordinance, and insists she double-checked with commission attorney Jon Wolfe about votin g Wolfe told the Keynoter she was correct to vote because commissioners must have a financial interest to recuse themselves from a vote. "That ordinance went before the County Commission twice. Not one person came to either hearin g ," Putney recalls. As for the Plannin g Commission resolution hearin g Putney said: "Not one person."Enemies'The division on No Name Key appears to have taken on a life of its own; it has a modern-day Hatfields and McCoys feel about it. The Bakkes say an anticommercial electricity nei g hbor declared them "enemies" at a g et-to g ether on the island, while Brad Vickrey has been accused of wantin g to develop No Name. Vickrey is listed as executive vice president of DAUM, a Californiabased industrial real estate company, on the company's website. He said he's never had plans to develop land on No Name. "My business is industrial real estate. I'm tryin g to retire. I never developed anythin g I leased and sold warehouses," he said. Putney said she's had property stolen and that someone once put an ad for solar homes for sale in the Keys in her mailbox with a note attached: "Go move there." Candy Kimble is a commercial-electricity opponent who's owned a home on No Name with her husband, Harold, for four years. They've lived there full-time since last November and Kimble says many nei g hbors aren't on speakin g terms. "They won't even speak to the solar people. We tried to be friends and they tell us we don't think like they do. That division is terrible, it's very uncomfortable," she said. Perhaps the g reatest example of how thin g s have devolved is a June 2010 Monroe County Sheriff's Office report dealin g with survey stakes placed on the island by Lower Keys utility Keys Ener g y Services. They were markers for commercial power poles. Accordin g to the police report, someone moved rou g hly 40 of the stakes, promptin g No Name resident Kathy Brown to report the incident to police. The report lists 10 No Name residents, as well as the No Name Key Property Owners Association. The report says Brown provided police with a list of 13 addresses for nei g hbors opposed to commercial electricity. It appears officers spoke with Putney first, over the telephone. The report says Putney claims association members "were the ones dama g in g other people's property [and] bullyin g members of the Solar Community." Putney g ave examples such as moorin g buoys bein g cut, destruction of county si g ns and threatenin g letters. Jan Scanlon told police that association members "call people from the Solar Community names as they drive by, or drive their cars close to people walkin g on the street." Police eventually closed the case because there was "no witnesses or evidence to identify a suspect."No love lost among neighbors over electricityPOWER STRUGGLE ON NO NAME Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYAlicia Putney first became active in No Name Key battle over Galleon Bay.

Are we setting a precedent that the 30 percent is void?" "The problem is we're passing this zoning thinking we're going to get 48 affordable units, have 208 units total built there and we only get 23 percent," Mayor Craig Cates said. "But it's a good project, benefits the community; there's new housing, it's good for business, and it raises the tax rolls." City Attorney Shawn Smith was careful to point out that approval of the zoning change, the first of two required, is not tantamount to approval of White Street Partners development plan. That would have to go through the city's development review process, which includes analysis by the Development Review Committee, Planning Board, Historic Architectural Review Commission and City Commission.

Rick Scott appointed Mark T. Porter as Superintendent of Monroe County schools Wednesday afternoon. Porter fills out the unexpired term created when Jesus Jara resigned the post in July and took a higher-paying job as a deputy superintendent in the Orlando area. Porter was hired by the Monroe County School Board in August and will be the district's first hired top schools admin-istrator. Prior to a voter referendum in 2010, Monroe County schools superintendents were elected, running countywide and with no requirement for minimum educational management experience. Florida is one of four states all in the deep South that still retain elected superintendents. Before accepting the Keys post, Porter, 56, spent 32 years as a teacher, coach, principal, school board member and superintendent in Minnesota. Gov. Scott appointed Jara in August of 2011 to replace Joe Burke, who resigned to take a superintendent's job in Lee County. And Burke had replaced then-Superinten-dent Randy Acevedo, who was removed from office in 2010 after being indicted on misconduct charges in 2009. Acevedo, first elected in 2008, turned out to be the last elected superintendent in Monroe County. His legal woes led Keys residents to approve a referendum in 2010 making the superintendent's job a hired position and no longer an elected post. Porter is finishing out Acevedo's unexpired term.

Did Hurricane Isaac's late Au g ust presence in the northern Gulf of Mexico drive some fish south and into the Atlantic Ocean? Whatever the reason, there have been some hefty swordfish cau g ht, released and lost off Islamorada in the Florida Keys durin g the past few days. Earlier this week saltwater fishin g writer and broadcaster Geor g e Poveromo teamed up with Captain Nick Stanczyk of Bud N'Mary's to shoot a show on daytime swordfishin g off the Keys for the 2013 season of "Geor g e Poveromo's World of Saltwater Fishin g ." The show airs on NBC Sports Channel. Stanczyk's father Richard, his uncle Scott and friend Vic Gaspeny pioneered daytime swordfishin g techniques almost nine years a g o. On Tuesday, Nick Stanczyk and Poveromo set out in Poveromo's Mako 284. About 45 minutes after the bait went into the water Poveromo hooked up. Some three hours later, they had a swordfish almost within g affin g ran g e when the hook pulled. Back to the spot a g ain, and within minutes another hookup. A g ain, Poveromo was fi g htin g a bi g fish. The fish was about 350 pounds and a g ain, the fish was lost near the boat. Poveromo was exhausted from spendin g the last five to six hours fi g htin g two bi g swordfish on his standup Penn International 80 tackle. He wanted to call it a day and try a g ain Wednesday, the second day of the two-day shoot. But Stanczyk wasn't about to return to the dock without a fish, so he convinced Poveromo to try one more drop. Amazin g ly, within minutes of the bait hittin g the bottom more than 1,500 feet below, another hookup. The third time was the charm and they boated a 256-pound fish, returnin g to the dock at dark. On Wednesday, they went out a g ain. No pressure they just wanted to g rab some additional foota g e. First, they hit the Islamorada 409 hump to vertical jig for blackfin tuna. Then, one drop at the swordfish g rounds and they released a fish estimated to wei g h 175 pounds. Headin g back in, they ran into a school of nice dolphin and arrived back by 2 p.m. On Thursday, with the television show done, Stanczyk returned to his charterboat and led his client to a 300-pound swordfish. The same day, Poveromo took Carl Grassi, a friend and owner of the camera boat, out fun fishin g just the two of them on the Mako 284. Grassi wants to catch a swordfish. Usin g GPS numbers and bait ri g s provided by Stanczyk, they quickly hook up. After a seven-hour fi g ht that covers 26 miles from hookup to landin g Grassi finally reels in a 380-lb. swordfish on the Penn standup outfit spooled with 80-pound-test Sufix 832 line. Poveromo said the fish was "tail-wrapped" durin g the last hour and came to the surface dead."It really sinks in what an incredible swordfish bite that it's been," Poveromo said. "The Florida Keys is one of the very few places that you could out and do it (catch swordfish) consistently," he said.TV show host catches fish and footageBy ANDY NEWMANFlorida Keys News BureauISLAMORADAZip-line update on tap at TuesdayThe Marathon City Council is scheduled to meet in re g ular session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. A g enda items include: An update on the proposed zip-line course at Crane Point Hammock, for which the City Council a g reed to pursue a state Community Development Block Grant. Accordin g to city documents, the state Department of Economic Opportunity is "ready to award" Marathon the g rant, but the council has to review three documents: "Participatin g party" and "sub-recipient" a g reements between the city and Crane Point and an a g reement and "offer to contract" between the city and DEO. City documents say once the a g reement is finalized, the council would "act at its next available meetin g to finalize the g rant. The council will consider an ordinance answerin g DEO concerns and movin g the city closer to dolin g out the 100 new hotel units awarded by the state Cabinet in January. The ordinance is amendin g two minor portions of its comprehensive plan that were addressed by DEO durin g its review of the city's law enablin g it to award the hotel units. There's been a moratorium in place on them since the city incorporated in 1999. Asecond readin g for a law allowin g do g s in local bars and restaurants. Arecent state crackdown on do g s in public eateries led the council last week to amend city code to allow them. It created a "do g -friendly restaurants" section that mirrors a 2006 law approved by the state Le g islature.Second-reading on new dog law also scheduledMARATHONFew surprises in city bud g et plan with tax hikeThere was little discussion from Marathon City Council members or the public when staff laid out its proposed bud g et in July. City Mana g er Ro g er Hernstadt said he expects much the same when the city holds its first of two public bud g et hearin g s at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon Government Center. The hearin g is bein g held in conjunction with the council's re g ular meetin g "It's a structurally balanced bud g et at the lowest possible milla g e rate that could be set in order to maintain the current level of service. Everyone who's paid attention to the issue knows that and the council would like to see the current levels maintained," Hernstadt said. The council approved a preliminary bud g et on July 19 that is 7.2 percent above the rollback tax rate of 2.0512. Rollback is the rate needed to collect the same amount of tax dollars as in the current year. That 2.1989 rate which has not chan g ed is equal to $2.1989 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The owner of a $300,000 house would pay $659.67. The proposed tax rate would raise $3.71 million in property tax revenue, $197,665 more than the current year's $3.52 million. The total proposed bud g et is $10.82 million compared to the current year's $12.9 million. The reduction is mostly due to the city settlin g a land-takin g lawsuit filed by Keys Radio Group owner Joe Nascone re g ardin g his Boot Key property. The city a g reed to pay $3 million to Nascone rather than pay much more to refurbish the failin g brid g e leadin g to the island. Hernstadt said the settlement would be paid usin g city reserves and won't affect residents'property tax rate. "We're just takin g money out of the fund balance account. That's somethin g we want to build back up and we'll continue to try to be efficient and save money over time," he said. The final bud g et hearin g is scheduled for Sept. 25, also durin g the council's re g ular meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Public hearing Tuesday begins at 5:30 p.m.MARATHONYellowtail closure order has fishermen steamin gAclosure of the commercial yellowtail-snapper fishery in federal waters definitely will occur just after midni g ht Monday. The primary question now facin g crews aboard 275 Florida Keys commercial boats that hold a federal yellowtail license: How soon can the season be reopened? "This closure could not come at a more inopportune time ri g ht when demand and prices are g oin g up," said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen's Association. "This will cause si g nificant and irreparable economic harm," Kelly said. "Not only to fishermen, but to fish houses, restaurants and markets." State and federal fishin g mana g ers apparently a g ree that the stock estimate used to set the species'1.14-million-pound annual catch limit, as required by federal law, widely underestimated the yellowtail population. "It's not question of overfishin g ," Peter Bacle of the Stock Island Lobster Co. said. "With yellowtail, I'm not sure that's possible." "There is a lot of fish out there," Marathon resident Orelia Gonzalez said on behalf of several yellowtail operations. "Nobody knew this was comin g These are the four months when the tourists are here, when our fishermen make their money." The federal South Atlantic Fishery Mana g ement Council holds a re g ular week-lon g meetin g be g innin g Monday in South Carolina. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioner Martha Bademan and state commercial-fishin g representatives will be there, pushin g to have the a g ency's Science and Statistical Committee review a newly completed yellowtail stock assessment as soon as possible. "I'll be there ban g in g a bi g drum," Kelly said. "The stock assessment is hi g hly favorable," Kelly said. "It says yellowtail are not overfished, and that it's actually an underutilized species'...There's more yellowtail out there than ever." But revisin g federal re g ulations, even on an emerg ency basis, will take weeks. "It's g ot to g o throu g h the process," Kelly said. "The most optimistic timeline would be early to midOctober. If the system runs it's course, it could be mid to late November." Without the expectedemer g ency action, the commercial hook-and-line yellowtail fishery would stay closed until Jan. 1. Recreational yellowtail fishin g remains open. Commercial fishin g for yellowtail in state waters also is open, but the primary fishin g g rounds lie in federal waters. Monroe County produces 90 percent of Florida's yellowtail catch, Kelly said.

Our area, the Florida Keys in Florida, is a very unique place; we depend on only two industries, tourists and fishing. NOAA, National Marine Fisheries, is doing the reverse, closing fisheries for months at a time, with no regard for the working people of this country. We work very hard; we are devoted to our country and our families. Unfortunately, our source of income has been greatly reduced by closing some of our local fisheries, and our only way to sustain our families and the local economy as well. On Aug. 29, a bulletin was sent out to the effect that the yellowtail snapper fishing along with other fisheries, would be closed Sept. 11, 2012 through Jan. 1, 2013. The closure of four months in our high season, and when our product has prime price, will devastate all of us and our families. In the summer, the price of our catch is very low, because of not a great demand. But, towards the end of the year, the demand increases and our product is priced better. We have two main concerns. First of all, is that our families will suffer the brunt of this measure, and second is that, while we can not fish, the import of such species have not been stopped. The Southeast Fisheries long ago took measures to preserve the yellowtail snappers by restricting the size of the fish caught. We ask for your help to solve our problem and prevent more citizens on unemployment or depending on state assistance. Orelia GonzalezFlorida Commercial FishermenMarathonFlorida League's voters guide debunks partisan cant being spread by both sidesWith the Democratic National Convention just concluded in Charlotte, and the Republican's having exited Tampa the week before, it may be a good time to talk politics here in Florida. Only, we want to begin with some facts you may or may not know. These help define the playing field so voters can referee on their own when candidates (and their surrogates) cross the line (literally). This proves timely with release of the 2012 Florida Election & Voter Guide, compiled by the Florida League of Women Voters, and released this week.This non-partisan group has as its motto: "Be Prepared. Be Informed. Be a Voter."First, some facts:Compared to Florida, 46 other states have higher taxes as a percentage of personal income (Florida has no income tax)Florida has a lower corporate tax rate than 38 other statesFlorida's government workforce has shrunk over the past decade and is now the smallest and least expensive in the country on a per capita basis.On average, states spend $10,499 annually per K12 student while Florida spends $8,760 (Keys taxpayers spend more than the national average per student) Given the rhetoric bandied about in Tampa and in Charlotte, it's hard to reconcile all the political hyperbole with facts on the ground. Perhaps the best example comes in the muchmaligned topic of healthcare (or, as Republicans like to label it, Obamacare). Florida's Republican-controlled Legislature has placed a constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would allow Florida to opt out of federal health care reform (i.e. the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). Most voters probably don't even know it's on the ballot, yet Florida has the second-highest rate of uninsured citizens in the country. Most of the information broadcast on this comes in a partisan barrage of mis-statements and half-truths and from both sides. And that's not the only constitutional amendment Florida voters face in November. Other amendments affect homestead exemptions and who can qualify; cap state revenues based on population and inflation indexes; prohibit public funding of abortions; repeal language in Florida's Constitution that prohibits taxpayer funding of religious institutions. Those are pretty important issues. And the public and private interests at stake loom rather large. You should want to learn more. And, you can.

At this point either through oversight or deliberate participation in the stealing and resale of taxpayer property, the commissioners have the responsibility and obligation to wipe the slate clean and not avoid this task by fancy rhetoric to avoid doing what they took an oath of office to do.If they fail to follow the grand jury's very clear recommendations, then they should hand in their resignations and turn the reins over to those who have the moral and ethical fortitude to do so. Howard Gelbman Key LargoHold the line on raisesMy sincere thank you to Dr. Jesus Jara for having the intestinal fortitude to stand up to the teachers union. The fact that he reduced, and then stopped, taxpayers'money from being used to pay the union representative is a goal in itself. I never understood why the union representative was paid by the union and by the school district to fight the school district and bring lawsuits against the school district. All School Board members who were part of the previous boards who allowed this travesty to happen should be voted out. I greatly appreciate your wisdom in trying to keep our schools open and balance the budget. Thanks to his budget cuts, we have a healthy reserve fund going into the next school year. I sincerely hope the new superintendent will not allow the union to bully him into doing their bidding. Last year may be the first year teachers have not received raises, but the rest of the county is used to that. There is no law that says an employee must get a raise every year and that it must be 3to 5-percent and all their benefits are free to them since taxpayers have deep pockets. These hard working teachers seem more interested in yearly raises and benefits than what is best for the students they say they care about. Jean Prim Key LargoThanks to Guy HarveyThe Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (FYCCN), whose goal is to create the next generation that cares about fish and wildlife conservation, is the beneficiary of a lot of good friends.One of those friends is renowned marine wildlife artist and conservationist Guy Harvey. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) recognized Harvey and his company in Tampa for their support of FYCCN programs that get kids involved in conservation-based recreation.Dr. Harvey told the gathering: "We are proud and excited to partner with FYCCN in furtherance of our marine educational programs and goals. This partnership will help us to teach and develop the next generation of responsible Florida sportsmen and women." Steve Stock, president of Guy Harvey Inc. and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, both headquartered in Davie, presented on behalf of Harvey a check for $50,000 to the Wildlife Foundation of Florida to help fund FYCCN saltwater fishing camps that infuse in youths conservation ethics and a sense of stewardship related to the sport of fishing. Stock said: "The importance of developing in our children a strong personal connection with nature and a conservation ethic to match cannot be overstated. The future of the state's natural resources depends on it." The Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network is jointly sponsored by the FWC and the Wildlife Foundation of Florida. The FYCCN is a growing network of youth centers that teach kids basic principles of conservation and outdoor ethics, while developing traditional outdoor skills that include fishing, shooting sports, boating, wildlife viewing and more.For more information, visit fyccn.org.Brett Boston Executive DirectorWildlife Foundation of FloridaTampa City accepts $30,000 bank settlementAfter rejecting a $20,000 code compliance settlement from the Bank of New York Mellon, the Key West City Commission on Wednesday agreed to take $30,000. Mellon bank via foreclosure bought the house at 923 Eaton Street from the mortgage holder, JP Morgan Chase in 2009. The property fell into disrepair, eventually becoming the subject of action from the city's Code Compliance Department, leading to a $186,750 accrued fine. Although commissioners on Aug. 21 voted 5-2 to reject the $20,000 offer, City Attorney Shawn Smith said this week he had done more research on the property and found the city's lien on the property could be invalidated. "The current offer of $30,000 is something the city should accept given the fact there are questions to the validity of the lien," Smith said. "$30,000 certainly is far in excess of the actual cost the city has in this particular issue." Smith also pointed out that the $30,000 figure equates to the fines related to the 120 days that Mellon owned the house and it was not in compliance with municipal code. Residents opposing continued to frame their objection in terms of little Key West giving a bailout to a greedy financial giant."Our goal is to have the city clean and safe," Mayor Craig Cates said. "As much as I'd like to see some consequences for [the bank]...we can move forward and I will support this motion." Commissioners accepted the $30,000 settlement with a 4-2 vote; Commissioners Jimmy Weekley and Teri Johnston dissented and Commissioner Mark Rossi was absent. Also on Wednesday commissioners directed Smith to examine ordinances and land development regulations having to deal with parking and ensure language and intent was consistent. The issue, brought up by Commissioner Tony Yaniz, hinges on a recently passed law that mandates boats, trailers and RVs be parked fully on private property and not city streets. Yaniz said he has received complaints that boat owners who have had their vessels red tagged are calling in neighbors with commercial vehicles and utility trailers parked on the public right-of-way. He suggested a 30 day moratorium while Smith works to unify the existing laws, but Police Chief Donie Lee said that would undo progress his department has made. "If it's the commission's intent not to allow boats to be parked on the city's right-of-way," Lee said, "then don't go back. We've gained a lot of ground over the last couple of weeks. Most boats are off the streets now."Resolves code fines totaling $186,000-plusKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Photo by SEAN KINNEYThis boat,seen illegally parked on Emma Street,was removed this week after the owner was issued a red tag by city police who are stepping up enforcement of the ban on parking boats,trailers and RVs on city streets.
Saturday,September 8,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com How to mesh owners,managersQ. I own one of the largerbusinesses in the Keys. We have 40 employees and fourlocations. Once a year we get togetherwith the managers, of which there are 8, and discuss business goals, performance of the Company as a whole, etc. Afterthis year's meeting, I felt that there were a couple of managers who just "didn't get it." Have any of your clients had this happen to them? What did you tell them to do about it? A. There can be a number of reasons why a particular employee, manager or otherwise, just never seems to "get it." One of the more common reasons is that the owner isn't talking the language of the employee. In a severe case of this last month, the employee even accused the owner of "living on a different planet." Why does this happen so often? To fully understand, let's say that there are three different personalities in your business: Owner, Manager, Technician. Usually but not always, the Owner is the leader of the company. Generally, Owners are visionaries, are inspirational to be around, have a high level of commitment to the company, its services and customers, and see the big picture of the company and how it fits in its market place. Owners can be impulsive, trusting their gut feel in most of their decision-making. Most owners are focused on the future. Managers, on the other hand, are delegators. They get work done through other people. They are generally good coaches and good teachers. They generally have a low need to be liked, are methodical and systems oriented. Their view is about how to get the job done in their individual area of responsibility. Managers are focused on the present. And finally the Technician. Generally, Technicians perform individually, learning one or a few skills very well. They are generally most concerned about doing their own job well, identify most strongly with the other workers, and operate best when in their own comfort zone. They are primarily focused on the present what can I do to get my job(s) done now? Reflecting upon these three roles Owner, Manager, Technician could lead to the conclusion that these are three very different people. And in most cases this conclusion is absolutely correct. That's why your situation is so common -taking the business'best technician and promoting him or her to management is one of the most common mistakes businesses make. Wise business owners realize that people perform best in their comfort zones, which usually encompasses the things they most like to do. Moving people out of these zones can work, but most times not very well. Sometimes, the owner asks the key employee to perform out of his "zone." The lure of prestige and money causes the employee to do this for a while, and sometimes the employee will perform these duties for a long time. Understanding this, how can you more effectively relate to that manager? The answer I like the best for your particular situation entails the use of a personality profile system. There are a number of different types of systems available. The one I have the most experience with is the DiSC(tm). Using this system, you the owner would answer a series of questions about how you would like the role handled. Then the manager answers a series of questions that indicate his or her personality style. The system then generates a chart showing the tendencies the job requires, the tendencies the manager possesses naturally, and how the manager needs to "flex" his or her natural tendency in order to perform in the role the way the owner wants. The entire process takes less than three hours and costs under $300. For more information, Google DiSC or contact me. And, now that you know all of this, how about getting on out there and making some money?

But he's also quick to note that he forks out premiums and copays: "It's government insurance. But it's insurance." Mike Manning, 64, accuses President Barack Obama of "cutting Medicare" through the federal health care overhaul "then lying about it." He also says the country is headed for fiscal ruin unless it curtails spending. "How do you know who to trust in this?" frets Ed Galante, also a few months from Medicare eligibility. He declares the entire debate to be poisoned by craven politicians. In a state where legions of retirees are so important to election outcomes, voters from seniors to young people express strong feelings about the future of Medicare. The debate is playing out in the presidential campaign as well as House and Senate races that will help determine the balance of power on Capitol Hill. The views expressed in a series of recent interviews with South Florida voters were as varied as the solutions politicians have offered for the costly entitlement program. This is where voters found common ground: None expressed confidence that government will provide new generations the benefits now granted to older Americans. And few said they believe that either Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney have a practical answer for sustaining an insurance program that accounts for nearly a fifth of federal spending and about 4 percent of the U.S. economy. "I just assume Medicare won't be there for me at all," said Christine Pallesen, a 26year-old business consultant in Fort Lauderdale. The responses demonstrate how vexing the issue is for Americans across age groups, particularly baby boomers.That landscape makes it particularly difficult for campaigns to know just how their Medicare strategies will play in November. Like Florida, swing-voting states such as Iowa and Ohio also have large numbers of seniors and older boomers. Obama won all three states in 2008, and Romney has no likely path to the White House if he fails to win Florida and Ohio. The Medicare debate intensified when Romney named Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the House budget chairman, as his running mate. Ryan's long-term budget blueprint would curtail government insurance in favor of vouchers to help individuals buy private plans. Democrats say that's proof enough that Republicans "will end Medicare as we know it." The GOPcounters that the 2010 health care law, which redirects about $700 billion in future Medicare spending, makes the president the real threat to existing beneficiaries. Democratic strategists in Florida say Medicare is an issue that fires up the party's liberal base while resonating with nonpartisans who believe government should establish a social safety net and reasonably regulate the marketplace. Their Republican counterparts outline a twopronged strategy: convince older voters that Romney is the better protector of the status quo for them. But they want younger voters to analyze Medicare within the GOP's larger framing of Obama as a profligate who has left no choice but to overhaul benefits for future recipients. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 41, said recently after a speech in Palm Beach County, "I believe people in my generation understand that." Romney demonstrates the delicate balance. He praises Ryan, 42, for forcing "serious discussion," while emphasizing that the congressman's budget won't define a Romney administration. One of Ryan's first campaign stops was at The Villages, a GOP-friendly retirement development in central Florida. He introduced his mother as a proud Medicare recipient. Glenn Basile, who retired to West Palm Beach after decades as a New York City public school teacher, recalled future President Ronald Reagan lambasting Medicare as a "socialist" threat before President Lyndon Johnson signed the new law. "Has it not always been the Republican point of view to do away with Medicare?" he asked. Basile, 63, said he has voted Republican for president before. Ted D'Alessandro, 64, said Obama's 2010 law will only exacerbate the nation's lopsided financials. Yet the self-described libertarian said the overhaul includes "good things" like barring insurers from denying coverage based on existing conditions and allowing young adults longer stays on family policies. Both provisions add cost to any coverage pool. Jean Siciliano is an 85year-old who came to Palm Beach County from Long Island, N.Y. She said her fellow seniors are less swayed any of the Medicare arguments than strategists and younger voters might assume. They formed their politics long ago, she said, proudly declaring her GOP allegiance. "I'm set," she said of her Medicare benefits. "They won't come after me. I'm worried about my children. What'll they get? How will they pay for it? ... I don't think any of the politicians know the answer."Florida voters appear split over partisan claimsBy BILL BARROWAssociated PressSENIORS MARKETPLACE RECENT REAL ESTATE SALESSALES vs. LAST YEAR: 78 percent Based on information from the Florida Keys Board of REALTORS, Inc.

Key West gets ready to host the 40th Annual Poker Run, 5B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Expand color palette with the right accessoryThe number one style rule is to never wear more than three colors in an outfit. That said, you're goal should ALWAYS be to wear three colors and to feel fabulous in what you're wearing. Adding a bright, rich textured scarf to your ensemble can create just the right amount of color to make your outfit interesting. For example: a black dress paired with red shoes = predictable; a black dress paired with red shoes and a leopard print scarf = fabulous. Pick scarves with interesting patterns, colors and textures add to your wardrobe. In the Florida Keys, the lighter-weight the scarfs, the better, as lightweight fabrics are more versatile and can be worn through every season. Always make sure the colors you choose are complimentary to your skin tone and are something you can easily integrate into your wardrobe. If you own a bright pink handbag, a scarf in a bright pink pattern could be worn with multiple outfits including jeans and fitted shirt, a dress for work and as a coverup over a swim suit. How you wrap the scarf is just as important as picking the right colors and textures. The next time you pick out a scarf to wear, try tying it one of the following ways. The Cowl Neck: Lay the scarf flat on a surface. Grab the lower left corner and the top right corner in opposite hands. Take your right hand and wrap the scarf twice around your neck so that the ends end up in front. Tie a small knot with the ends at the desired length. For a true cowl neck look you want a small gap between the scarf and your neck. It shouldn't look like a turtleneck, think of how the neck on a chunky sweater lays. That's the optimal look. Turn the scarf so that the knot endsScarves can make outfit interestingCONCH STYLELeah Maki ConchStyle Photos by Sedura ImageryZero Dress Code boutique in Islamorada carries plenty of scarves and other accessories.

The 98 UTteam won the Division II title with a 46-14 record. "I was the startin g first baseman," Menendez said. "I don't know my exact stats, but I led the team that year with a .391 avera g e. I had two home runs and like 40 RBIs, and was first-team all-conference. I was the MVPof the South Re g ional that we won to put us in the World Series." He said the main reason he went to Tampa was because he believed the team had a g ood chance for a national title."My cousin, Matt Hudson, was the winnin g pitcher in their first national championship season in 1992, so I knew of the history and tradition there," Menendez said. "I mean when g uys like Lou Piniella and Tino Martinez are alumni, you know it's a g reat pro g ram." He recalled some of his teammates on the 98 team: "Louie Martinez si g ned with the Braves and made it to Triple-A, Ronnie Merrill was a third round pick of the Padres, and Erik Mirza went on to play with the Astros." The inductions will be on Oct. 18 at the university's Vau g hn Center. "Those were some g ood teams that I played on and I had a g reat time durin g my career there," said Menendez, who has coached the Conchs for seven seasons and has a 108-82 record.Univ.of Tampa to induct Keys coach in OctoberBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST Photo by BERT BUDDEMiguel Mendendez played for University of Tampa from 1996-99.Conchs 2-0 after Westminster victoryThe Key West Hi g h boys swim team won its second consecutive meet Wednesday, ed g in g Westminster Christian, 87-83, in Miami.

The infestation was discovered in September 2011. Officials hoped they could keep the snail from joining other exotic plant, fish and animal species that have found havens in the state. "After one year of battling the giant African land snail with every tool currently available to us, we are still confident we can win this fight," said Richard Gaskalla, director of the Department of Agriculture's Division of Plant Industry. "However, we need the continued help of the public if we are to successfully eradicate this dangerous pest." The snail has been found only in Miami-Dade County, but it poses significant risks to Florida's landscape. The giant African land snail is considered one of the most damaging snails in the world because it eats at least 500 types of plants and can cause structural damage. It also can carry a parasite that can lead to meningitis in humans. Aprogram aimed at wiping out the snail's population has cost $2.6 million in state and federal funds so far, said Denise Feiber, spokeswoman for the Division of Plant Industry. The last reported outbreak in Florida was in 1966 when a Miami boy smuggled three snails as pets. His grandmother released them into her garden and they multiplied. It took a decade and cost more than $1 million to eradicate more than 18,000 snails. It's not known how the snail arrived in Florida this time, and there's no estimate for how many remain. "We know they lay eggs, up to 1,200 a year, and they live for nine years. We're just one year into this," Feiber said. Officials credited homeowners for identifying and reporting most of the main infestation sites. The snails were collected from 350 properties, mostly in urban areas, Feiber said. Hundreds of the snails, which can grow up to seven inches in length or more, are collected each week, officials said. Giant African land snails originally come from eastern Africa. They are illegal to import into the U.S. without a permit. No permits have been issued. The snails also have established a population in Hawaii over the last 40 years, but eradication efforts are focused on Florida to keep the infestation from spreading across the mainland, said Andrea Simao of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.Ag officials report catching 78,000 so farBy JENNIFER KAYAssociated PressENVIRONMENT Voracious eaters,African land snails can carry parasite that leads to meningitis. www.keysnet.com Ambidextrous pets? Researchers study preferencesGacey Meza performs a right-handed-left-handed test with a cat at a Los Angeles animal shelter. Could your dog or cat be a southpaw? Vets and owners agree that pets, including horses, have right and left preferences. Researchers are studying right brain-left brain connections, genetics and sexual orientation that may one day change the way dogs and cats are bred, raised, trained and used, says Dr. Stefanie Schwartz of the Veterinary Neurology Center in Tustin, Calif., and a member of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. Some horses have to be ambidextrous, says Dr. Sharon Crowell-Davis, a behavior and anatomy professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia. A1991 study at Ataturk University in Turkey showed 50 percent of cats were right-pawed, 40 percent were left-pawed and 10 percent were ambidextrous. A2006 study from the University of Manchester in England showed dogs were split half-and-half. About 90 percent of humans are right-handed and 10 percent are lefthanded. Laterality the textbook term meaning one side of the brain is dominant may someday help breeders predict which puppies will make the best military, service and therapy dogs, Schwartz says, and that could be lifesaving. But for now, here are a few simple tests you can do to determine your pet's preference, she says. Doing it 100 times (over several days) should give you an answer. If you teach a dog to shake, which paw does it offer you first and most often? Fill a toy with something delicious and put it in the center of the dog's visual field. Which paw does it use to touch the toy first? Which paw does the dog use to hold the toy? Put something sticky on a dog or cat's nose. Which paw does the animal use to remove it? Place a treat or a piece of cheese under a sofa, just beyond a dog or cat's reach. Which paw does it use to try and get it out? Dangle a toy over a cat's head. Which paw does it lift to bat it? Put a treat under a bowl. Which paw does the cat or dog use to move it? When a dog wants in the backdoor, which paw does it "knock" with? If a dog has arthritis or an injury in a shoulder or leg, it could use the other to compensate, Schwartz says. And when a cat really wants something, tests show it uses its dominant paw, but when it's just fooling around, it may use either or both. Well-beingThe well-being of dogs and cats doesn't depend on preference, but the same cannot be says for horses, Crowell-Davis says. In U.S. racing, horses only have to lean left because all races are run counterclockwise on tracks, but in some competitions and in some other countries, horses have to race and canter both ways. "They have to be able to circle right and left. If not, they can trip," CrowellDavis says. "You have to work to get them to take the lead they prefer less." Robin A.F. Olson of Newtown, Conn., founder and president of the Kitten Associates rescue organization, says her cats are always reaching for toys or treats with one paw or another. Olson says she was born left-handed, but her mother didn't want her growing up left-handed in a world of right-handed people. "She always handed things to me close to my right hand. She always put the crayons in my right hand." There won't be any such lessons for her cats, she says. "I try not to be judgmental of my cats'abilities or lack thereof. We will never worry about the antipaw." It appears that Nora, an internationally acclaimed 8-year-old piano-playing tabby from Philadelphia, owned by piano teacher Betsy Alexander, is rightpawed. In videos, "she appears to lead with her right paw, then follow with her left," Alexander says. But she has her ambidextrous, headstrong moments. "She uses both paws to reach for specific notes, even black notes ... and she uses her head to roll a series of multiple notes."

Not so in the Florida Keys, where a hospital for sea turtles is an eco-tourism attraction. The Turtle Hospital, at mile marker 48.5 bayside in Marathon, is the worlds only licensed veterinary hospital dedicated to the treatment of sea turtles. It opened in 1986 with the goal of healing injured sea turtles and returning them to the wild. This week, the hospital and its efforts at rescueing and rehabilitating rare sea turtles grabbed the limelight with news of a rare hawksbill turtle flown to Marathon from the U.S. Virgin Islands. The injured animal was treated by Marathon veterinarian Doug Mader, who did an ultrasound scan and discovered the female turtle was carrying more than 100 eggs. As Turtle Hospital staff attempt to save the animals life, theyre also worried about saving future generations of the rare hawksbill. By mid-week, the turtle had already begun laying eggs, which will be incumbated on sand from St. Croix beaches to preserve the baby turtles sense of nest fidelity. That helps them navigate over vast ocean distances and return to the beach where they were born. Turtle Hospital founder Richie Moretti originally recruited a veterinarian to complement his existing turtle education program back in 1986. And now the facility has more than one vet, including volunteers and staffers. It even has a turtle ambulance to transport their marine patients. Along with trained volunteers, the Turtle Hospital staff treat injured sea turtles, which are a protected species in U.S. waters and in many other countries as well. When possible, the turtles are returned to the wild. And some rehabs have taken as long as nine months or more, especially if the turtle had severe injuries. If release isnt feasible, the creatures become permanent residents of the facility, which offers tours to the public. Hospital staff also focus on public education through outreach programs with Keys schools and they conduct research on sea turtles, working with state universities. Among patients treated and later returned to the sea was a 215-pound loggerhead sea turtle named after the American president. Obama was rescued on Key Wests Higgs Beach Jan. 19, 2009, the day before Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th chief executive of the United States. Prominent people including former President Jimmy Carter, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and other prominent politicians have assisted in turtle releases. Publicity from those events helps spread the word about steps to preserve these endangered turtles. Visitors can take guided educational tours of the Turtle Hospital facilities and sea turtle rehabilitation area. During their visit, staff explain how the unique center started and how patients are treated.
