Keys schools Superintendent Mark Porter without hesitation has graded his nearly six months of job performance as a B-plus and received similar marks from members of the Monroe County School Board who offered up evaluations as Porter is now settled into the job. Board Chairman Andy Griffiths and board member Robin SmithMartin independently graded Porter at the B-plus level. Board member John Dick opted for an incomplete.At this time, I really dont see much of a signature of Mark Porter on anything in the Monroe County School District, Dick told the Keynoter. He is still gathering information I suppose, so at this time I really cannot give him a letter grade. I dont think I can judge.Griffiths, a 20-year board veteran, qualified his grade by noting that would be like trying to give a kid a grade after two weeks in class. That said, I think hes a good communicator and he speaks very well. He also praised Porters initiative to develop a five-year strategic plan with multiple opportunities for public engagement and inclusion. He said that when it comes to strategic plans, generally they bang one out, cross it off their list and put it on shelf. It has little utility.

William Shane Smith, Jamie Hopkins and Kevin Jackman, all based at Coast Guard Station Marathon, signed up together for the month-long contest that targets invasive Burmese pythons.It will be a different experience, said Hopkins, 23, a Broward County native.The three were the only Florida Keys residents to have signed up for the python hunt as of Thursday. Pythons are out there eating up other species, said Smith, 27, so I think this is an important thing to do. All three of us are outdoor people and from Florida, Smith said. I grew up going out into the woods [near Daytona Beach] and catching snakes. Im big into Florida wildlife. None of the three has ever tangled with a python. Were willing to try to catch them, Hopkins said. Nearly 700 people have registered for the event to compete to see who can harvest the longest and the most Burmese pythons, as described by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Florida U.S. Sen.

Zecca, co-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard, was already charged with murder for hire, accused of attempting to pay $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine for the murder of Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. The other charges contained in the indictment:Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine. Attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine.Transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon.U.S. Attorneys Office spokeswoman Annette Castillo said Friday that Zecca is still scheduled for a 2 p.m. arraignment before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow. Its at the Sidney M. Aronovitz federal courthouse at 301 Simonton St.If convicted, Zecca faces the possibility of life in prison on each cocaine charge. The indictment states that each involved five kilograms or more of cocaine.The maximum penalty for murder for hire and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon is 10 years each in prison.The indictment also calls for some of Zeccas property to be seized, including:ABeretta 92FS 9mm pistol the gun authorities say Zecca gave to an informant whom Zecca believed would kill Schmitt.ASmith and Wesson .40-caliber pistol.AToyota Tundra pickup.

Dr. Sandy Yankow, medical director and founder of the Good Health Clinic in Tavernier, said his practice, which provides free health care to the uninsured, has plenty of flu vaccines, but many of his patients are turning them down because they think the shots cause people to get influenza. Nobody gets the flu from the vaccine, he said, adding that the shots protect against 60 percent of the known flu viruses, including this years nasty and most common strain the H3N2. Other reasons people forgo the vaccine include simple complacency, May said. But getting the shot is an easy way to avoid being laid up for several days with the flu and could even save your life. It is inexpensive and painless, and one of the most effective tools we have against pneumonia, and even death, she said. The influenza season started around October, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said more people are getting sick earlier this year than in years past. As many as 18 children have died this season nationwide due to flu illnesses; two of them lived in Florida. Thirty-three pediatric deaths were blamed on the flu during the 2011-2012 season, according to the CDC. The worst year in recent history was in 2009 during the H1N1 outbreak. That year, 230 people died in the U.S. from flu-like illnesses. We are in peak season now, Yankow said.Asked if Mariners Hospital is seeing more people this year than last coming in complaining about flu-like symptoms, hospital spokeswoman Sheila Konczewski responded with a resounding yes.The official word from the CDC and state health officials is that the state and nation are seeing elevated levels ofThe outbreak this is year among worstBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comTO YOUR HEALTHSee Flu,2AMixed grades for schools chief PorterGenerally, he receives Bs from bossesMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Porter,2ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com
influenza-like illness this season, said Christopher Tittel, spokesman for the Monroe County Department of Health.About 5 percent of all hospital emergency room visits in Florida are people complaining of flu-like symptoms, according to CDC figures released from the last week of 2012. While Monroe County is experiencing a mild amount of people reporting flu-like illnesses compared with the rest of the state, Department of Health Medical Director Mark Whiteside says cases are expected to continue to rise before the season ends in the spring, and he says its not too late to get a flu shot. Flu shots are available at Department of Health offices Keyswide. Office locations are at the Roth Building at 50 High Point Road in Tavernier (853-7400), the Ruth Ivins Center at 3333 Overseas Highway in Marathon (2892708), and the Roosevelt Sands Center in Key West at 105 Olivia St. (809-5680).The DOH charges for shots in most cases, but people pay based on their income, Tittel said. People are asked to bring proof of insurance, and if they dont have insurance, they are asked to bring proof of income.We use proof of income and a sliding scale to determine how much we charge that person for the shot, Tittel said. It could be $35 or $20 or $5, depending on how much they make. Shots are free in cases where folks dont make enough money to afford the shot at all, he said.The Good Health Clinic at mile marker 91.5 oceanside offers free shots to uninsured locals. The clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.To get a free shot at the Good Health Clinic, you must prove you have been a Keys resident for six months or have been employed in the Keys for the same length of time. The free shots are also only available to people without health insurance of any kind. Yankow, of the Good Health Clinic, said if youre in the throes of the flu, vitamin C and lots of it is one of the best ways to combat the nasty illness. He recommends 1,000 milligrams every two hours while awake.Also important: Lots of fluids, Yankow said.

She was born in Superior, Wisconsin to Albert and Olive (LaGesse) Van Arman. She received her nursing degree in 1940 from St. Josephs School of Nursing where her work varied from private duty nurse, to charge of ER and also worked the surgical floor. Virginia flew for Northwest Airlines as a flight attendant where she met her soon to be husband, Paul Peoples II. She also worked for The Great Northern Railroad as an industrial nurse until her family moved in 1957 to Miami, FL. While living in Miami, Virginia worked at Veterans Hospital in Coral Gables, and as a Public Health nurse for Dade County Public Health. In 1968 she traveled to Germany where she served as a clinical nurse for the U.S. Army Hospital, instructed pre-natal classes on the air base and worked as an assistant librarian at the Armys library. Returning to Miami in 1973, Virginia was hired as the Industrial Nurse for the Miami Federal Reserve Bank where she worked until full retirement in 1985. Stillwright Point in Key Largo, FL became Virginias new home. There she was an active member in St. Justin the Martyr Catholic Church volunteering her time to the Womans Club, tutoring foreign visiting priests in English, and assisting the elderly to daily mass. Her personal project became being a fund raiser for the Florida Keys Children Center by selling Skin So Soft to businesses in the Upper Keys. In 2002 Virginia moved back to Miami to live at The Palace where she enjoyed excellent care and kept her mind sharp with crossword puzzles. Her biggest regret was that she could no longer help others. Virginia leaves behind to cherish her memory her five children, Paul, Mark, Suzy, Pat McLatchey and Julie Gossett, along with numerous grandchildren and great grand-children throughout the United States. A Mass celebrating her life will be held on Friday, February 1, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Justin the Martyr Catholic Church, Key Largo, FL.

Looking ahead, Some things need to start happening. He singled out completing the $38.6 million Horace OBryant reconstruction, slated to be done in June; staffing issues; and creating a five-year strategic plan.Of work hes completed, Porter discussed his realignment of titles given to toplevel staffers. He finished that, which was started by predecessor Jesus Jara, by realigning duties and responsibilities. Alot of this is a little bit invisible and behind the curtain, but I really felt we had to take that on quickly. One of the things we really want to do is create a system of accountability. The more important part is to provide people with clear expectations. Hopefully one of the things it will do is cause us to be more efficient. It frees up our resources to go to the classroom and hopefully it will result in a higher performing workforce.Porter noted that with four months of financial data accumulated under his watch, and the impending summer budgeting season ahead of a July 1 fiscal year start date, thats something I need to be responsible for, he said.Porter beat out 56 other applicants, earning a threeyear contract worth $150,000 per year.Describing an oftenoverlooked nuance, Porter noted that in addition to him being the first-ever hired, rather than elected, superintendent, the board has never been in a position before to direct a chief executive.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSincludes the community at large and I think thats very good. Smith-Martin agreed with Dicks assessment of not seeing Porters signature on any particular project but said, Hes very smart and hes a good listener. His deliberation and decision-making is very purposeful. Porter was hired Aug. 1 to be the first-ever hired rather than elected Monroe County schools chief. His three-year contract pays $150,000 per year. He came to the Keys as former superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Public Schools and replaced Jesus Jara, who moved on to become the deputy superintendent of Orange County Public Schools in Central Florida. Board members Ron Martin and Ed Davidson, the latter elected to the board in November, couldnt be reached for comment on this story. But when the board met on Tuesday at Coral Shores High School, Davidson praised Porters efforts so far and lauded him for accepting responsibility for approving construction change orders in violation of board policy.Porters a good listenerFrom Porter,1A Cities extend fire contractFire-protection negotiations between the cities of Key Colony Beach and Marathon went a lot smoother this year than in 2010.The Marathon City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a two-year extension to a five-year agreement it has to provide fire and EMS service to its neighboring Middle Keys city. Its early in Year 3 of the original deal. The cities agreed on a five-year deal at $525,000 per in August 2010, but not before much drama played itself out. Upset at the time with perceived hardball negotiating tactics on the part of Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt, the Key Colony Beach City Commission voted 3-2 to drop the city and go with Monroe County Fire Rescue. But the commission ultimately reconsidered when it became clear the citys fire insurance rating would fall precipitously with the county, leading to higher insurance rates for homeowners. It then voted unanimously to go back to Marathon.Key Colony Mayor Ron Sutton said the agreement has worked well since then and that his commission sought an extension with the city.Our commission was willing to extend it for an additional few years from when it was going to run out and apparently their board did too, he said. We have a good rapport with the new chief; he comes to our meetings and tells us about any and all calls. I have to say since we went into this last contract with them that things have worked very well, he said. The deal would have been extended even further, but Hernstadt said the city wants to be cautious because Marathon Fire Rescues union contract expires Dec. 31, 2014. If we commit to them and through negotiations the price of fire service goes up, we have to keep them in the same window of time. We have no way to distribute those costs, so we have to keep those dates somewhat in line, he said. Marathon Fire Chief John Johnson said there were 122 emergency calls involving Key Colony Beach in 2012.It covers all emergency calls from emergency medical calls in the house, to auto accidents, to fires, to false alarms. We also assist out there with any questions they have regarding fire code and any new construction, he said.KCB mayor says deal works wellBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS GETRESULTS with the Keynoters classified section. 743-5551 Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos
Change orders stack upThe Monroe County School Board may have to ratify change orders that were already approved by School District administrators but not in compliance with board policy. Thats according to board attorney Dirk Smits, who reported at the School Boards meeting Tuesday at Coral Shore High School that there have been 71 change orders related to the $38.6 million reconstruction of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West.Board member Ed Davidson called for the change-order review shortly after his election in November.Generally, changes or contract amendments in excess of $25,000 go to the board for approval. Below that threshold, Superintendent Mark Porter can act unilaterally but is required to submit the changes at a board meeting to maintain the public record.Smits described five HOB change orders exceeding the $25,000 threshold and not put to the board, noting, Those, it is my opinion, that need to be ratified or fixed by the board.There are two other related to contract amendments with builder Coastal Construction that may need board approval, Smits said.Why didnt anybody know this before? board member John Dick asked Smits.I dont know the answer to that, Smits said. Whats normal for a construction company to do often doesnt comport with what government wants. These things need to be audited. Davidson said he wanted to get in front of the changeorder analysis because the project is five months from completion. The reason Im being adamant about this, he said, is I dont think we should wait to the end. The stuff we have questions on now, staff should get to work on now. In the Horace OBryant case, Davidson focused on a change order for Coastal Construction that would reduce the cost of the rebuild by $608,755 due to a reduction in the scope of the work. Of that, 60 percent of the savings would be on the districts ledger and the rest would be savings to Coastal. Porter approved the change, but not the disbursement, with the rationale that although the number exceeds $25,000, it was a reduction.Attorney says these things need an auditBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comresidents from 31 other states. Eleven people from Georgia sent the $25 entry, and Texas has a nine-member contingent on the way. The challenge is not just to remove pythons from the wild but to raise awareness about the detrimental impact that nonnative species have on Floridas environment, said FWC spokeswoman Carli Segelson. Python hunters over age 18 in the Challenge do not need a state hunting license to take the unwanted reptiles. Other nonnative snakes, like boa constrictors, can be taken by Challenge hunters but only Burmese pythons count toward contest prizes: $1,500 for most pythons and $1,000 for the largest. To date, the largest Burmese python taken in Florida measured just under 18 feet. Most tend to range from 8 to 12 feet. Information from captured pythons will be examined by scientists to gather information about what the snakes are eating, how large they can grow and where the majority of them are coming from, Segelson said. All this will help in future management efforts. Python Challenge contestants are limited to Big Cypress and other specified public wildlife management areas north of the Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41), into Broward County. It runs until Feb. 10. Everglades National Park is off limits for Challenge contestants, although the park does have its own permit for qualified people to collect or kill pythons. Everglades and Big Cypress guide Garl Harrold, who runs Garls Coastal Kayaking from Key Largo, holds an Everglades permit. I dont go out looking for them, I just come across them, Harrold said. The biggest python I got probably was about 9 feet. I havent kept track of how many. Harrold disdains the Python Challenge concept.Giving prizes is ridiculous, he said. Some people will know what theyre doing but a lot wont. What concerns me is how much native stuff will be taken by mistake. Contestants are required to watch a 30-minute video that focuses on snake identification and techniques for catching pythons. Pythons must be killed before being turned into official stations. The FWC offers instructions on humane euthanasia. That often involves decapitating the snake (many hunters will carry machetes), then using a gun or other method to destroy the reptiles brain, which reportedly can remain active for an hour after a beheading.People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals issued a statement calling the Python Challenge misguided and says that failing to ensure that all snakes are killed humanely is despicably cruel.Groups supporting the effort to reduce the number of unwanted snakes that prey on native wildlife include the University of Florida, The Nature Conservancy, The Future of Hunting in Florida, the Wildlife Foundation of Florida and Zoo Miami. Shawn Heflick, a reptile expert featured on the National Geographic TV show Python Hunters, told the Reuters news service that many Python Challenge entrants will be discouraged by South Floridas natural environment. The vast majority of them will probably curtail their hunting very quickly when they figure out theres a lot of mosquitoes, its hot.... I think a lot of them will go home, he said. About two dozen Burmese pythons and other nonnative constrictors have been found in the Florida Keys over the past several years. Some likely were pets that escaped or were released, but others may have migrated after hatching in the remote Everglades. Government biologists estimate there are at least 10,000 Burmese pythons loose in South Florida, and possibly many more. Burmese pythons were targeted because the snake has readily adapted to South Floridas environment.For more information, go to www.PythonChallenge.net Saturday,January 12,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Christopher D.

Cintron stressed Druckemillers case would not go to trial. Shes charged with felony dealing in stolen property and scheme to defraud. Its just not going to happen, he told Audlin. Were not going to be shifting into trial mode. Were still in a position to enter a plea. Audlin set a follow-up hearing for Feb. 8 at 9 a.m. in the Freeman Justice Center in Key West.

The Key West City Commission on Tuesday approved a long-term lease for developers hoping to turn the old Waterfront Market into a working beer brewery, bar and restaurant.Commissioners also postponed action on granting a permit to a local company hoping to run a weekend farmersmarket and bazaar at the Truman Waterfront property.Bar owner and Commissioner Mark Rossi was the lone dissenting vote in assigning a 20-year lease for a city-owned building to restaurateurs Joe Walsh and Chris Schultz. The lease term is 20 years at a base rate of $397,782 per year, plus a portion of operating revenue once the business opens, for the 18,942square-foot building. Also included in the agreement is a $2 million construction loan thats amortized with interest over the duration of the lease, essentially earning the city nearly $1 million. As for the farmersmarket, commissioners were not satisfied with the level of detail contained in an application from Bazaar Productions Inc. President Candida Andriole and postponed a vote on it until Jan. 23. She wants to stage openair markets each weekend in February and March beginning Feb. 2 and 3. It would feature artisan foods, fresh produce, arts and crafts, antiques and jewelry. The U.S. Navy gave the proposed Truman Waterfront site to the city in 2002 as an economic development conveyance. Since then, city officials have worked to develop a large destination park on the 33-acre property.Commissioners applauded Andrioles concept as in line with what the public wants to see at the waterfront.Also Tuesday, City Attorney Shawn Smith updated commissioners on two ongoing issues related to the Truman Waterfront area: The citys lease with the U.S. Navy for use of the Outer Mole Pier as a cruise ship berthing, and a potential lease with the Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition for development of an assisted/independent living facility.The coalition has been working for nearly a decade to find a developer to build and operate such a facility on land leased from the city.Smith said Jan. 1 began a 180-day period during which the coalition has to submit a development plan application, or the opportunity goes away.The last offer from coalition partner Wendover Housing Partners would pay $500,000 in up-front closing costs associated with a 50-year lease, then $15,000 per year after 10 years of operation. Plans call for a $20 million to $30 million facility with between 90 and 100 units comprising a mix of oneand two-bedroom apartments priced from $300 to $1,100 monthly.

Publication promised Rockland shopping centergoes to hearingAdebate over the size and shape of a proposed Rockland Key shopping center moves to the Monroe County Commission at its Wednesday meeting in Key West.The board holds the first of two hearings on creating an overlay district for the 33-acre site, which could simplify permitting and construction.However, commissioners must decide whether to side with the developers, the county Planning Commission or county planning staff on unresolved issues.The development group a coalition of landowners, Key West consultants and developer David Garfunkel accepted some, but not all, of the recommended revisions urged by the Planning Commission or staff, Growth Management Director Christine Hurley said in a background report.Primary differences include:Overall building space. The developers sought 500,000 square feet but agreed with Planning Commission members to accept 400,000 square feet. Planning staff recommends 300,000.The size of individual buildings. The developers seek a 240,000-square-foot building to accommodate an anchor tenant like Target or WalMart (no names have been confirmed), which would require about 140,000 feet. Smaller stores would want to be under the same roof, developers said.Planning staff said the largest single building should not exceed 125,000 square feet, which is larger than any other Lower Keys commercial building outside of Key West.Planning commissioners like a single-building limit of 140,000 feet.Money to build publicuse facilities. County staff wants the developer to include a community center or library, perhaps costing more than $1 million, as part of the agreement. The developers agreed to provide vacant space with some improvements but balk at paying for a facility of unknown size or cost. Barring extensive delays, Garfunkel told the Planning Commission the center could open by late 2014. Lower Keys community associations generally support the shopping-center concept as long as it contains public facilities. However, other Rockland Key landowners voiced concern about one project absorbing all the available commercial-footage allocations for the area. The session on Rockland Keys overlay district will be part of a 3 p.m. Wednesday slate of public hearings.Other issues on the regular 9 a.m. County Commission meeting at the Harvey Government Center in Key West include:Discussion of local priorities for the 2013 session of the Florida Legislature.Areview of county Marine and Port Advisory duties and goals.ABig Coppitt Key womans request to keep her homes illegal enclosed downstairs apartment because of health and family concerns.Size among the issues remainingCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgCity Commission OKs breweryAction on farmers market is postponedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST The complete Florida Keys news and information source.
Monroe County Sheriff Office Sgt. Jake Brady is officially on the lookout for new digs but hell have a hard time matching the sweetheart deal hes had with the city of Marathon since 2002.The longtime Keys cop and Republican candidate for sheriff last year was given 90 days notice to vacate the cityowned three-bedroom house at Sombrero Beach in which hes been living for 10 years, according to Marathon City Attorney John Herin. We provided notice to the current occupant to give him 90 days, Herin said at Tuesdays City Council meeting. The council agreed in 2003 to rent the house to a low-tenure Sheriffs Office deputy for $500 per month. Brady has been living at the beach since and the original lease expired in August 2004. Herin went so far as to ask the council for authorization to do eviction procedures in the event Brady doesnt move out on time. He was clear the request is precautionary but noted that Brady has consistently been late with his monthly payment. City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the Keynoter the house is the only one owned by the city intended for Sheriffs Office deputies. He said Bradys arrangement came to his attention during an end-of-year review of contracts and properties. Thats when it came to my attention that hed been there a long time and we didnt have a current lease, Hernstadt said. Its been roughly 10 years and we havent been in it and we want to be sure ... that whatever it takes to maintain the property happens. Once Brady moves out and the house is cleaned, another deputy on the lower end of the pay scale will likely move in. In other business Tuesday: The council gave $8,900 to the nonprofit Friends of Old Seven toward a planned economic study on the future of the old Seven Mile Bridge. Group President Bernard Spinrad said the study would examine the possible economic impact on the Middle Keys that repairs to the failing bridge would bring.Formed in July 2011, the group has been working to secure funding to refurbish the historic 2.2-mile span leading to Pigeon Key. Its owned by the state Department of Transportation.DOThas reportedly committed 50 percent of the cost (up to $9 million) to refurbish the bridge, which is closed to auto traffic and fishing due to structural problems. The catch is the agency wants to relinquish ownership of the bridge and ongoing maintenance costs likely to Monroe County. The council approved an $89,462 contract with Sports Turf One Inc. to refurbish a pair of baseball fields at the Marathon Community Park. The council budgeted money for the project in the current fiscal years budget.

They were a reward for the city nearly completing its central sewer system as mandated by the state.Key West-based Spottswood Cos. received 25 units for its long-awaited 125-room Hyatt at the Faro Blanco property in Old Town. Vice President Bill Spottswood said hes anxious to get started with construction.I think 2013-14 ... is going to be really big for Marathon, he said. The more of these flag hotels you get involved, they drive business to that area. You have a lot of people loyal to these brands and everybody wants to come to the Keys. I think Marathon can absorb all these properties.Spottswood said he hopes to start construction within 60 to 90 days as soon as he can pull permits and the state Department of Economic Opportunity finishes its review.Roger Masters and his partner, Prime Hospitality Group, were awarded 19 units for a 95-room Courtyard by Marriott near mile marker 48. He also said they plan to start building as soon as possible. Were in the final stages of applying for our permits and that probably will be done in the next 30 to 45 days, Masters said. At that point, I expect the city to get the permits back quickly and well start building. If things go smoothly, well be approved by the end of February and start digging. Pritam Singhs 87-unit Tranquility Bay was awarded 16 one-bedroom units, while the 20-unit Bonefish Bay Motel near Key Colony Beach received five units.We will start construction in early March. We should be pulling our permits by the end of January; then we have to order materials, Singh said.Planning Director George Garrett told the council Tuesday that six applicants came forward, but only four completed the process to be able to apply for new rooms. Each of them has [transient rental units] on their property to meet the criteria of our code. We have more units than have been requested and so theres no reason not to grant them, he said. The city held several meetings in early 2012 to gather public input on handing out the new hotel-room units. Many suggestions were made, but the most significant condition created was a 4-to-1 ratio, meaning a project could receive only one unit for every four already in hand. Marvin Rappaport, owner of the former Crystal Cove Resort, and Coconut Cay owner Jim Rhyne missed out on this round of allocations.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON The complete Florida Keys news and information source.

I can only say from my perspective what a frustrating and idiotic scene there was. Frustrating because I dont know who planned the stops for this race, but crossing the street so many times caused massive delays and stops on the highway. I was in it, and it took me one hour and 45 minutes to travel from Key West to Big Pine Key. Idiotic because I cannot imagine who sent 6,000 runners down the side of the road 2 feet from my vehicle. Many times I was forced into the opposite lane of traffic. Many times I had to slam on my brakes because the people in front of me gawked and took pictures of all the bananas, jesters and other oddly dressed runners. This is a very dangerous situation, and I cannot believe law enforcement allowed this to happen in this manner.I was stopped four times by Sheriffs Office deputies to allow runners to cross the road on my way down to Key West in the morning. On my way back in early afternoon, I was stopped five times. This is a road for vehicle use, and should not have that many people on the road. The road is in such bad shape anyhow that sometimes drivers ride on the shoulder for a better ride.If this race is allowed to continue, someone, someday is going to get seriously hurt or killed. That is just too much going on for Saturday drivers. Saturdays and Sundays are when there are the most inexperienced drivers on the road. Also they picked the weekend when most people who were staying in Key West for the holiday week were heading home. How this race is scheduled in the middle of high season week is unbelievable. Cancel this race and any others that clog our road and make it dangerous for everybody involved.Also, a side thought: I have been a victim of a heart attack recently. If I lived on Summerland Key and on that Saturday I had a heart attack, I would probably be dead because there was no way for emergency vehicles to travel cross the Niles Channel Bridge; it was packed with sitting cars not going anywhere.To whom it may concern, please use this information and information from other stranded motorists to make a smart decision about the use of U.S. 1 as a track and field sports venue. It is a very dangerous road on any given day and should not be clogged with people running 2 feet from vehicles. Todd Niemeyer Big Pine KeyThey tell lawmakers to revert back to 14 early voting days; Legislature must heed the callSometimes voters may wonder whose interests are being served by those who represent them. This was brought home last year when long lines and frustrated voters could see that the Florida Legislature didnt have their interests in mind at all. Instead, the Republican-controlled House and Senate, with the active encouragement and endorsement of the governor, passed laws to restrict early voting, make it harder to vote a provisional ballot and undercut voter registration efforts with more red tape. For most political observers, it was clear the motive was more to suppress voting than the stated reason of ferreting out voter fraud.Without retrying that whole mess here, lets just agree that Florida got a black eye again when it comes to holding elections. Doing it on the national stage of a bitterly contested presidential election made it even worse.Well, this week a delegation of the states local election supervisors met in Tallahassee and as a group Republicans and Democrats agreed to ask the Legislature to reverse course and restore early voting to 14 days. And a Miami-Dade Republican lawmaker, who had been a vocal supporter of the voter-fraud crackdown moves previously, has now filed a bill seeking to bring back early voting on the Sunday before the election and to increase the hours from 12 to 14 hours on the eight days now designated. Thats not enough and it perpetuates the image of the GOPtrying to keep Democrats and nonaffiliated voters away from the voting booth. Maybe its because the Florida Republicans, confident of pulling Mitt Romney to victory with Floridas 29 electoral votes, were embarrassed as they watched voters in some areas of the state wait in lines up to six and eight hours to cast their ballots. Even Gov. Rick Scott, whos running for re-election in 2014, appears to have had a change of heart, saying publicly that more early voting days might help. If he heeded that advice from the states local elections officials last year, perhaps Florida could have avoided another black eye on the national stage. Recommendations delivered this week by the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections are a good first step. But it will take a concerted effort by moderate Republicans in both houses of the Legislature to join with Democrats and nonaffiliateds and reverse the 2011 voter suppression laws still on the books. When voters wonder whose interests are being served, just watch what happens in this years legislative session which starts in March and youll have your answer. Appreciate your KeysYet again on my annual pilgrimage to the Florida Keys, I am stunned by the amazing beauty of the place so very different from my home in England 4,000 miles away. Nature in the Keys is so abundant, rich and diverse, and so utterly compelling that to sit in a friends yard on Lower Matecumbe Key is like being in heaven. There is so much to see. Sitting awhile out back going nowhere in particular, the wildlife I encountered in November was magical.Brown pelicans were roosting in the whispering pines above the canal, their black webbed feet clinging to the branches. Agreat blue heron skimmed by, neck folded, legs tucked under like some streamlined aircraft on a mission. Atarpon lunged out of the water to get dinner and some parrotfish swam past. Pinfish and glass minnows moved under the surface, shimmering beneath my feet.Just when I thought it couldnt get any better, an osprey came and stayed on the branch above my head, majestic and splendid. There were more in the sky, mewing and calling. Turkey vultures wheeled on the thermals and white ibis settled on the dock, startling a snowy egret. Ared cardinal settled on the roof. There were doves calling. Agecko climbed up the decking. Acrab ran across my foot and an emerald green iguana with a white stripe and yellow eyes appeared from under the bright blue flowers. Dragonflies and butterflies buzzed the bougainvillea and then great joy manatees, a mother and calf came close in the canal and stayed sleeping awhile, the calf suckling under its mothers arm. Later, a kingfisher and a blue jay flashed by, iridescent in the light of a stupendous sunset. So amazing all this fascinating wildlife and fantastic beauty in your own backyard in the fabulous Florida Keys. Lucky you! Maggie Chidsey Yorkshire, EnglandDont worsen problemBetween uninformed people spraying insecticides (killing predators but not whiteflies) and blowing their property (increasing dust levels) on a daily basis, the already horrendous whitefly infestations in the Upper Keys are just being exacerbated.From the University of CaliforniaDavisStatewide Integrated Management Program ( www.ipm.ucdavis.edu /PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7401.html ): ... Avoiding the use of insecticides that kill natural enemies is a very important aspect of whitefly management. Products containing carbaryl, pyrethroids, diazinon or foliar sprays of imidacloprid can be particularly disruptive. Control of dust and ants, which protect whiteflies from their natural enemies, can also be important, especially in citrus or other trees.From the University of Connecticuts Integrated Pest Management ( www .hort.uconn.edu/ipm/homegrnd/ht ms/48ghwfl.htm ): Several species may be found in greenhouses including the greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariorum), the silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia argentifolii) and the banded winged whitefly (Trialeurodes abutilonia). Of these species, the recently introduced silverleaf whitefly is most difficult to control due to its higher reproductive rate and resistance to insecticides...Dana Armenta Key LargoFor most political observers,it was clear the motive was more to suppress voting than the stated reason of ferreting out voter fraud. Pig law being changedThe Marathon City Council will reconsider a law it passed less than a month ago that allows residents to keep pigs as domestic pets. At the councils Tuesday meeting, Councilman Dick Ramsay asked fellow council members to agree to take another look at changes approved Dec. 11 by a 4-1 vote. Ramsay can ask to reconsider the law because he voted in favor of it. I made a motion to accept this ordinance at the last meeting. In between, I have had many phone calls from people who have told me, Im concerned about this or that, he said. The council agreed to consider amendments to the law at its Jan. 22 meeting.As approved, the law provides for annual licensure of domestic pigs ($55 annually). Their vaccinations must be verified every year and owners must uphold maintenance standards and minimum setbacks for outdoor pigpens.Ramsay said that among other concerns are whether to require pet pigs to be spayed or neutered, whether imposing a maximum weight should be done, outdoor pigpen conditions and the number of pigs allowed per household. Councilman Chris Bull raised many of those concerns at the December meeting, and Mayor Mike Cinque, who sponsored the item, said he was amenable to changes. But at the time, Cinque called a vote after a motion and a second before Bull had a chance to speak further, and the law passed. Bull was the lone dissenter. Alot of this started because there was a misunderstanding and I apologize, Cinque said. Regardless of what you read in the newspaper, this was simply an ordinance to allow some people to keep a pet pig.Bull said Tuesday that hes researched neighboring governments, including the Key West and Monroe County, about their laws regarding domestic pigs. He said hes asked for that information to be distributed to the council.Cinque and Councilwoman Ginger Snead suggested that individual council members submit possible changes over the next week in advance of the Jan. 22 meeting. We can come back to it next meeting and get this done and hopefully move on, Bull said. The Jan. 22 council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONTrust must return $380,000In the summer of 2011, the developers of a proposed Winn-Dixie supermarket and a local hotel owner who wanted to build a conference building on his property were locked in a race for allowable commercial building space held by the village of Islamorada. The hotel, the Islander Resort, won the battle, in large part because of public sentiment and popular support among the five-member Village Council. The 15,000-square-foot conference building at mile marker 82 was to include a 7,000square-foot-museum named after and featuring artifacts collected by noted historian Irving Eyster. Council members chose the conference building/ museum over the supermarket because they wanted Eyster, who was then 92 years old, to live long enough to see. Almost a year and a half later, the $4.5 million conference center at the Islander is finished, and Eyster is still very much alive. But the museum honoring him is no longer part of the project. In August, David Curry, the Islanders owner, declared the Matecumbe Historical Trust, the museums backer, in default of its lease agreement with the hotel. If the museum is ever to be realized, it will be at another location. At the Jan. 16 County Commission meeting at the Harvey Government Center in Key West, Eysters daughter, Barbara Edgar, will return almost $380,000 the countys Tourist Development Council granted for the museum project. Edgar said the project fell apart because of power struggles among members of the historical trusts board of directors members who were in charge of raising matching funds to the TDC grant. Acouple of people had to have total control, and I mean total control, Edgar said, without naming anyone. We had people who were supposed raise money. Nothing was ever done. Edgar said Curry does not deserve any of the blame for what happened. Mr. Curry had good intentions, she said. The money the largest TDC grant ever given to an Islamorada project will go back into the TDCs capital resources fund for District 4, said Lynda Stuart, TDC office manager. The money would then be available for consideration for other potential projects designed to bring tourists to Islamorada.Without the $378,297, District 4 has $297,474 available this fiscal year, which began in October. Thats 14 percent of the total Keys market share, Stuart said.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA Possibilities include imposing weight limit

The settlement, which took effect in April, earmarked about $1.5 billion in payments for 2 million borrowers nationwide who lost their homes to foreclosure during that period and had their loan serviced by one of the settling servicers. About $170 million is available for cash payments to Florida borrowers. All available money will be distributed to those who file claims; none of this money will be returned to the banks or used for other purposes. Eligible borrowers do not need to prove financial harm to receive a payment, nor do they give up their rights to pursue a lawsuit against their mortgage servicer or to participate in the Independent Foreclosure Review Process being conducted by federal bank regulators. More information about that program is available at www.indepen dentforeclosurereview.com. Eligible borrowers can get a payment from this settlement even if they participate in another foreclosure claims process. However, any payment received may reduce payments borrowers may be eligible to receive in any other foreclosure claim process or legal proceeding. Borrowers should not need to pay anyone to file their claim and homeowners should be aware of settlement-related scams. Do not provide personal information or pay money to anyone who calls or e-mails you claiming that they are providing settlement-related assistance. If you believe someone is conducting a settlement-related scam, contact the Florida Attorney Generals Office at (850) 414-3990. The national settlement followed state and federal investigations that alleged that the five mortgage servicers routinely signed foreclosure-related documents outside the presence of a notary public and without personal knowledge that the facts contained in the documents were correct.

Pier House Joint Venture, based in Westlake, Ohio, has hired global investment banking firm Eastdil Secured, based in New York City, to market and sell the six-acre property.The 140-unit Pier House is actually four separate properties with a combined assessed value of $21.2 million.Rounded off, that breaks down to $14.5 million for the hotel at 1 Duval St., $2.8 million for a parking lot at 527 Front St., $2.6 million for a lease hold (leased property with improvements) at 529 Front St., and another lease hold at $1.3 million, also at 529 Front St. Typically, assessed values are lower than marketrate values, and some in the hotel business say the Pier House could fetch $60 million or more. Judson E. Smith, chief financial officer for the Richard E. Jacobs Group LLC, a Cleveland, Ohio,based part of Pier House Joint Venture, said he could see whoever buys it possibly rebranding [it] by an international luxury hotel and resort chain. The independent hotel is 40 years old and underwent a $12 million renovation in 2008. Amenities include a private beach, pool, three bars, restaurant, spa, fitness area and conference center. In October, Pier House Joint Venture agreed to buy from the city of Key West the land on which sits the Pier Houses Caribbean Spa, 22 rooms, conference space and a rooftop deck. The price is $7.5 million. The Pier House had a long-term lease with the city for that land, initiated in 1965 and running until 2020. The cost was just $3,600 a year for the prime downtown real estate. The Pier House got its start under developer David Wolkowsky.Massive resort likely to sell for tens of millionsREAL ESTATEKeynoter Staff Photo courtesy PIER HOUSEThe beach at the Pier House Resort and Caribbean Spa is enclosed by rooms,a restaurant and bar.Foreclosure relief deadline nearsBANKING BUSINESS BRIEFSAttractions group turns 30The Key West Attractions Association is throwing a party on Friday to mark its 30th anniversary.It was created Dec. 2, 1982, by a small group of tourist-based attractions.

Thats something weve been trying to achieve for a while, Coral Shores head coach Bruce Teachey said. Its a district win, and a win against a good Key West program. Were very happy. With three regulars sidelined, the Conchs (5-6) suited up only eight players. We never gave up, Conch coach Anton Lopez said. We did the best we could with what weve got. The Hurricanes made use of their size advantage up front with a scoring and rebounding frontcourt of forwards Alberto Anderson (17 points), Terrell Taylor (11 points) and 6-foot-10 center Will Ismer (13 points). Key West was a little undermanned but theyre still lightning-fast, Teachey said. Our size and defense made a difference, and our guys worked awfully hard in practice this week.

Angelo Guieb, ranked second in the state in 1A, wrestled at the Westminster Christian Invitational despite feeling ill the previous two days, his coach, Chaz Jimenez, said. He wrestled up in weight, losing to a 113pound opponent. After the match, Guieb could hardly stand and appendicitis was suspected. Later, though, hospital tests were negative for that condition. He probably has the stomach flu, Jimenez said.Guieb was coming off a championship at last weekends Buzz Hill Invitational, an event in which he improved his season record to 24-1.Even without Guiebs usual performance, the Conchs breezed to victories Wednesday 66-9 over Coral Shores, 83-0 over Palmer Trinity and 60-8 over Westminster Christian.Key West wrestlers whoAnd Hurricane Hill-Ridgeway beats KelleyBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP WRESTLING Lady Dolphins dispatch DadeYailin Nieda played a strong inside game and the Marathon High School girls basketball team cruised to an easy 48-17 victory over Dade Christian School Tuesday in Miami. Nieda led the Dolphins with 18 points, while point guard JohnNisha Qualls had 12 in a balanced effort. Seven players made the trip to Miami and all seven scored at least one basket. Yailin did a fantastic job rebounding. She had good rebounding positioning, so she was able to score a lot of put-backs because she was in the right position, coach Leslie Lindsey said. The Dolphins had struggled with the Crusaders in recent years, but Lindsey said theyre fielding a younger team this season after graduating a number of seniors. Everybody had a chance to score and it was a fun win. The girls really enjoyed themselves.

She said it was worth the trip to play a strong opponent heading into next weeks District 16-1Atournament. Its always close with Carrollton and we needed to come off the district and play a tougher team. It was a really good game, she said. Carrollton scored its goals in the 29th and 44th minutes to take a 2-0 lead. Durkin said both came on defensive mishaps by the Dolphins. Our defense drifted too far to the right and left a player open on the left for a good cross, she said.Marathon scored around the 70th minute to make it 2-1, off a 30-yard free kick by Regan Durkin that was headed in by Taylor Konrath. The Carrollton goalie moved out of the box to challenge Konrath, who got a head on it and put it in the back of the net.Offensively, the team looked pretty strong. It was the first game back for Taylor after five games with her injury. It was good to see her back in the rotation in time for districts, coach Durkin said.The Dolphins (7-6-3) are scheduled to finish their regular season with a home match Friday at 6 p.m. against Palmer Trinity School. The girls and boys teams will honor graduating seniors between games.The unfortunate part of it is were playing Palmer and then were playing them again on Tuesday in the district tournament, coach Durkin said.

Conchs stay close to HeritageCoaches dont like to talk about moral victories but the Key West High boys soccer team had one Thursday night in Plantation against a perennial power. Although the Conchs lost to American Heritage, 3-0, in a District 16-3Agame in Plantation, their coach, Rob Eggers, said, That was a huge result it should have been 2-1.The crazy thing, he went on, is that we lost to them last year, 7-0, with better and more experienced players.The Conchs had a great chance to score first, but a header by Spencer Hamilton sailed just wide. Heritage led by only 1-0 at the half. Amistake led to the Patriotssecond goal early in the second half. We made a throw-in right to one of their players 20 yards in front of the goal, and he put it in, Eggers said.The Conchs almost scored again on a 30-yard free kick by Ricky Gomez, but the shot was deflected. Shortly after that, Key West failed to convert a corner kick.Heritage scored its final goal after one of its speedy wing players turned the corner deep in Conch territory. Junior keeper Gavin Mock continued his strong play for the Conchs. He played spectacularly, Eggers said. This year he has not let in easy goals.The teams many young players continued to improve.They did really well, Eggers said, but sometimes they hurry things and get panicky or just freeze up.The loss dropped the Conchs to 4-8-1 overall and 2-6 in the district. Eggers expects the team will be seeded sixth in the district tournament that begins Jan. 22 at Mourning High.There was also a surprising result in Thursday nights JVgame. Led by freshman goalie Yandy Rocamora, the Conchs played the Patriots to a 1-1 tie.After the game, the Heritage coach asked Rocamora to come up and play for us.

The history of a 100year-old African workboat that became a major movie star before moving to the Florida Keys will be chronicled in a free 7 p.m. Monday event at the Key Largo library. Suzanne Holmquist will detail the origins and recent restoration of the African Queen during the program offered by the Historic Preservation Society of the Upper Keys. Lance and Suzanne Holmquist spearheaded months of efforts to restore the African Queen so it could resume its sightseeing cruises from its Port Largo dock at the Key Largo Holiday Inn. The boat is the original vessel used in the 1951 classic film that earned Humphrey Bogart his Oscar as best actor. Co-star Katharine Hepburn and director John Huston also were nominated for Academy Awards. The African Queen came to Key Largo after resort owner James Hendricks purchased it. The Holmquists, who operated the Calypso sailing fleet, saw that the aging African Queen was in need of restoration and undertook the project under an agreement with the Hendricks family. Avideo of the restoration will be shown Monday. The Key Largo library is in Trade Winds Plaza at mile marker 101.4. What we wear is a reflection of who we are. Its the first impression we give the world. And when it comes to personal style, knowing what you like and what looks good on you are equally important. Its the everevolving art of this-iswho-I-am dressing. The key to looking fabulous every day is to cultivate your personal style and then find key wardrobe pieces and accessories that help you highlight it. Know yourself your age, job and locale are the foundation to creating your personal style. My father once gave me the advice that its good to be noticed, not noticeable. If your wardrobe isnt age-appropriate or doesnt fit your job or location, then you are going to stick out in an unflattering way. If you work in an office setting, dresses, skirts, jackets and professional slacks may be the foundation for your wardrobe. Living in the Florida Keys allows your style to be more casual, so wearing sandals or sundresses may be perfectly acceptable work attire that in more urban locations wouldnt be appropriate. Developing your style is also about knowing who you are today. If you havent updated your hairstyle or look in 20 years, you arent displaying to the world the best version of yourself. Know what you feel good in.Do you have an outfit that you wear and receive a lot of compliments on? What outfit in your closet do you gravitate to when you need to look great for a meeting or fun event?Your clothing should make you feel fabulous and understanding what does is the key. You should be wearing clothes in which you feel good and that make you sing from the rooftops. Use the looks already in your wardrobe as the starting point and start building off these pieces. If structured ladylike dresses look great on you, find ways to add accessories to create a look all your own. Know what fits you and what flatters your figure. Most of us are not shaped like fashion models. But luckily, looking and feeling good in your clothing doesnt mean you have to be. Your clothing should be tailored to comfortably fit. If a dress is too short, too tight or too baggy, it will not create a positive image. Go through your closet and remove anything that doesnt fit. If you have a pair of skinny jeans you still hope you may fit into once you drop a few pounds, you can hang onto them but remove them from your closet. Instead, put items that arent currently wearable in another area where they wont be a distraction when youre getting dressed. Dont shy away from using a tailor. We all have different body shapes and sometimes getting something to fit right may mean having a tailor adjust it slightly. Good style isnt about what you wear, its about how you wear it. Assert an air of I-know-my-style and continue to adapt it. The best style advice I ever received was to spend money on your bag, watch and haircut because you will wear these every day. If these three things look good, the rest of your look will, too.Anyone can look fabulous every day when he or shes honed his or her personal style.Take a look at a woman who knows herself and has created a style unique to her. I had a chance to talk with Christi Allen, owner of the LivingFit Wellness Center in Key Largo (with additional locations in Ocean Reef and Marathon).Her mission is to help and inspire people to achieve health and happiness with a holistic approach to total body wellness. She believes movement and nutrition are medicine and the more you move, the better youll feel and the better life is. I teach and practice Pilates, but this is not my only practice, she said. Pilates is the foundation of everything that I do because it is a lifestyle, but I also practice yoga, meditation, chi gong and I run, bike, swim, paddle and play. The more I do, the better I eat, the more energy I have, and the younger I look and feel. How have the Florida Keys influenced her style? I have lived all over the world, including Hawaii, Texas, Oklahoma, Germany and so many places in between. Every place I have lived, I developed a new style. My style was always classically cool. However, I am a wild girl at heart, but hardly ever went wild with my clothing or accessories.Living in the Keys is so wonderful for me because the Keys are so eclectic in its people and its culture. I really developed my environmental passion in the Keys, too. This has led me to love consignment stores. I have found so many great treasures. I mix and match a lot now with new, used and recycled.Whats her go-to outfit for everyday in the Florida Keys? My go-to outfit in the Florida Keys when not in Pilates attire is jeans, a cute top and fantastic heels. Or when its hot out, I wear shorts, a cute top and fantastic heels.

Artists will have their works on display at West Martello Tower,1100 Atlantic Blvd., Key West, as well as at Higgs Beach through Mar. 23. The West Martello Tower pieces include works by Tyler Buckheim, John Martini, Carrie Daigle, Nellie Appleby,Creighton Michael and Susan Bailey. At Higgs Beach, visitors can see sculptures by William Thompson and German sculptor Gereon Krebber, whose installation is scheduled to be completed by Monday, Jan. 15. Sculpture Key West is an annual exhibition of contemporary outdoor sculpture. The non-profit group says its mission is to be an important, internationally recognized platform for contemporary sculpture while educating and inspiring the community of the Florida Keys and its visitors. The effort began in 1995 when Key West sculptor Jim Racchi called on a handful of local artists to install their work on the seawall, facing the sunset at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. The following year, as more artists wanted to join the informal exhibit, Racchi sent out postcards inviting members of the public to view the work. He called the show Art in the Park. Operating on a shoestring budget with local support and a lot of hard work, the exhibition gradually grew and expanded into a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization in 2002 and officially changed the name to Sculpture Key West in 2005.
