A Key Largo man was to be charged Tuesday for allegedly taking part in the death of a Pennsylvania man Friday in Bimini, the Bahamas.Tyler M. Valles, 19, was arrested along with Robert Schwarz, 62, of Gaylordsville, Conn., in connection with the death of Carl David Yerger, 45. Yergers body was found next to a boat at the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina, according to numerous newspaper reports.Valles is a 2013 graduate of Coral Shores High School, and made the honor roll. Valles Facebook page says he worked at the Pilot House Restaurant in Key Largo on the business glass-bottom boat.A friend of Valles said Valles went out of his way to stay out of trouble and all he wanted to do was fish; he has no Monroe County arrest record. The friend called him quiet and popular.Four Americans were initially questioned in the death of Yerger, who was from Fleetwood, Pa. but just Valles and Schwarz face charges. Arraignment was planned Tuesday in Nassau.Accord ing to numerous news accounts, the two suspects will be charged at least with manslaughter, and possibly with murder. They had an initial court appearance on Monday.One published report quoted Assis t ant Police Com mis sioner Emrick Seymour as saying they were all members of a crew on a boat docked at the marina, and that Yerger died after the others tried to keep him from getting on the vessel.The Reading, Pa., newspaper says Yerger and his wife, Rebecca, were married for more than 16 years. They have two sons: Ty, 10, and Tate, 7.Yerger co-owned a milling and consulting company in Pennsylvania.The Oley Valley (Pa.) Youth League, where Yerger was president, said in a prepared statement that Yerger led the league since December 2012.In that time, he inspired everyone he met and energized the small but tight-knit sports community of Oley, the statement says.

Shooting in the Islamorada area and throughout the rest of the Keys is expected to run through September.Its a series where everything takes place in the Keys so we expect it to be predominantly shot in the Keys, said Rita Troxel, director of the Florida Keys & Key West Film Commission. The Keys will be like another character, appearing as themselves.The last dramatic series to regularly film in South Florida was Burn Notice, which ended last year. MTV filmed a year of The Real World in 2005-06 in Key West and Key Haven. The comedy-drama Key West ran during the 1993 TV season.According to multiple accounts from the entertainment press, Netflixs psychological thriller centers on an island family whose secrets and scars are revealed when the black-sheep oldest brother returns home. Spacek plays the Rayburn family matriarch, with Chandler as the stable middle brother.Norbert Leo Butz, a twotime Tony winner for Broadways lead actor, appears as a boatyard owner who considers himself the waterfront communitys unofficial mayor.Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) has been cast as wayward brother Danny, with Linda Cardellini (Mad Men) as a sister.

The victim said he hired 55-year-old Lawrence Frank to do a survey of his Islamorada home prior to pulling permits for construction. He said he paid Frank $450 to do the survey but Frank never showed up to do the work. Since the victim hired Frank on the recommendation of his contractor, he asked the contractor to call Frank about it, the Sheriffs Office said. The contractor called Frank numerous times, but Frank never returned his calls, the agency said. The victim himself then tried to call Frank but found all his phone numbers had been disconnected. He went to Franks Office at mile marker 83.2 found that Frank had vacated his office. Moose Lodge, which hosted a celebration of life in his honor Tuesday. A memorial also was held Tuesday at the Island Christian School athletic field. The Larry Gillis Memorial Fund has been established to help support Island Christian School athletics. As for Mr. Heim, the 32inch-high concrete barrier separating traffic lanes from Florida City to Key Largo is painted a pleasing shade of blue because he insisted that a long, gray wall was an awful way to welcome visitors to the Keys. After leading the color campaign that drew the support of the Monroe County Commission and Keys business groups, the state Department of Transportation conceded. In addition, the chain-link fence along the Stretch was switched to black from the less-expensive gray to be less intrusive on the view. The Key Largo Chamber of Commerce in 2007 bestowed a highway-safety award on Mr. Heim in recognition of his tireless work to alter design plans that would have four-laned the Stretch. Serving in World War II, Mr. Heim also cared deeply about veterans issues. Mr. Heim and his wife Barbara, who died in 2010, moved to the Keys from Manhasset, N.Y., in the early 1980s after his career as a sales and new-products executive of the Campbell Soup Co.

That number will go up and down, Troxel said, but certainly there will be money spent in the Keys on catering, construction and all the other people they need here. Filming on roads and bridges could include occasional traffic delays but all will require permits and advance notice, Troxel said. The series enticing locales also may spawn tourism, she said.

Im hesitant to take a huge loss on this.During the frenzied realestate rush of 2006, then-commissioner Dixie Spehar championed the purchase of the site near the Oceanside Marina as a way to secure working waterfront while creating a public park and boat ramp. On a 3-2 vote, commissioners approved a $3.1 million buy of the land, named for its once-popular restaurant.Proposals for a park dissolved amid environmental concerns and other complications. By 2008, the county was trying to unload the property. A bid from Kings Pointe Marina was initially accepted and then canceled in August 2008, says a county background report. The commission rejected subsequent proposals in August 2009, November 2009, October 2010 and September 2011. Last year, the county weighed an offer from local businessman Richard Buckheim, who wanted to establish a commercial fishing dock for boats that use hook and line, with no trap or net storage.That ultimately was rejected because the suggested three-year rent of $3,000 per month was too low. Buckheim also wanted an option to buy; commissioners refused to commit to a price that could be a third of what the county paid for the land.A 2012 proposal from the Florida Yacht Group was rejected because it sought to build 14 housing units and seven commercial units, which the board considered too intensive for the neighborhood. In other items on todays meeting agenda, commissioners:Will hear a report on potential mooring fields at Jewfish Creek and Buttonwood Sound in Key Largo, and Boca Chica Basin in the Lower Keys. Boca Chica has the largest number of impacts from anchored boats, a consultant report says, but also has extensive seagrass beds in shallow depths that could prevent development. The Upper Keys sites have greater permit feasibility [and] available shoreside facilities, it says. County staff will seek direction on whether to proceed with more detailed proposals.County cant seem to unload the albatrossCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org CHANDLER Preference law gets tweakedThe Marathon City Council has agreed on an outline to upgrade a law aimed at giving cityand Monroe County-based contractors a leg up on securing municipal jobs. Approved in 2009, the ordinance, known as the local preference law, says that if a bidder comes within 10 percent of the low nonlocal bid, it would get preference for that deal. But an unintended and potentially costly provision of the law is that it never addressed a limit on the amount of a contract to which it could apply. Issues arose when the local preference came into play with Marathons plans for a new city hall now budgeted for $4.5 million. The law was never meant to consider contracts that size. To remedy the situation, the council agreed during its March 4 meeting to implement a sliding scale. The consensus was for the following scale: A 10 percent preference for contracts up to $250,000.A 7 percent preference for contracts from $250,001 to $500,000.A 5 percent preference for contracts from $500,001 to $750,000.A 4 percent preference for contracts from $750,001 to $1 million.A 2 percent preference for contracts more than $1 million.The original city hall process tabbed West Construc tion Inc. out of Lake Worth ($6.68 million) and Marathon-based BotsfordOverholt Construction ($7.14 million) as the low bidders.Botsford placed second only because of the preference law, and the council ultimately renounced all bids and will start the process over again.Florida Keys Contractors Association President Chris Gratton spoke March 4 to the council and said the trade group supports the sliding scale. I dont think we really thought about having a $5 [million] or $6 million dollar project coming along, he said.Gratton also advocated for language in the law relating to local subcontractors being hired for municipal jobs.One of the important items not in the original ordinance is the need for either outside contractors or local contractors using a percentage or number of local subcontractors, he said. The council agreed and directed staff to include that language and the sliding scale in an amendment.Sliding scale will be used based on costMARATHONConduct code likely comingMarathon City Council man Mark Senmartin has received unanimous, but somewhat begrudging, support to have some kind of code of conduct for appointees to city advisory boards.Last month, Senmartin suggested a wide-ranging morality clause that would call for appointees to be removed from his or her board if arrested for any reason. It received little support.At the councils meeting March 4, Senmartin offered revisions to his plan gauge council support.First of all, I think you must be a registered voter in the city of Marathon to be considered for any board, commission or committee, he said. This would prevent a person who doesnt even have the right to vote from levying thousands of dollars of fines against other residents.Senmartin was referring to the Feb. 7 arrest of longtime Code Compliance Board member Alun Stephen Pearson. Pearsons latest term expired on March 1 and he withdrew his name from consideration for reappointment after he was arrested on charges of forging signatures to obtain a duplicate title for a boat belonging to a 70year-old Tavares man with dementia. It was his third arrest since 2005.Part two is if youre arrested, it would trigger a discussion at the council level at the very least, Senmartin said, adding that if convicted of a crime, you would be replaced.Councilman Rich Keating offered the most resistance, saying he doesnt think a code of conduct is necessary. I dont know how much of a problem this is really going to be. We can remove a board member at our discretion. I dont think this is as big an issue, Keating said.Keating did agree with Senmartin on requiring advisory board members to be registered voters. Vice Mayor Chris Bull said hes concerned about the trigger for review coming upon arrest. There are different levels of arrested, indicted or convicted, he said. Theres a whole range of severity, Bull pointed out. I think this is a little duplicitous, but we want to make sure our little city is as above board as possible. Mayor Dick Ramsay said he would go along with a code of conduct dealing with felony arrests.I have no problems with a resolution saying if an individual on a board is arrested for a felony that we have an opportunity to discuss it. Thats nothing more than showing the public were concerned, Ramsay said.When youre convicted, thats a different story. At that stage of the game I dont think we want that kind of representation, he added. Senmartin agreed and his motion to have staff draft a resolution for a future meeting passed unanimously.Council hones in on specifics for appointeesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONFeds, district closeThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control District and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service appear to agree on a compromise that could have spray trucks back on Big Pine Key later this year.A roughly 130-page draft environmental assessment prepared by staff from both agencies was released on March 10 and outlines various alternatives to approach mosquito control on Big Pine. Fish and Wildlife banned adulticide inside the National Key Deer Refuge in mid-June last year.Fish and Wildlife says adulticide negatively impacts habitat for dwindling Bartrams hairstreak and Florida leafwing butterfly populations. Both are candidates for the Endangered Species List.The public has an opportunity to comment on the draft environment statement until April 10. The assessment is available on the refuges web site at www.fws.gov/nationalkeydeer/.Click on the Mosquito Management Plan EA link. Fish and wildlife can take [public comment] into account. Its technically a draft so it can be edited, Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle said. The compromise both agencies have been negotiating would largely restrict adulticiding, released as a fog from trucks, in critical and occupied butterfly habitat on Big Pine. The Fish and Wildlife letter outlines four alternatives, but says that Alternative B is best.That method is an integrated approach that would balance the missions of both [Mosquito Control and Fish and Wildlife] by allowing for a level of flexibility in mosquito control operations, it says. Doyle said he agrees.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLStaff pay goes to boardThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board is set to consider an updated employee pay scale today that includes a comparison of the districts benefits package with other agencies.Last month, Comptroller Bruce Holden added tightened-up starting salary ranges to his study at the boards request as part of an update to his ongoing look into adjusting minimum and maximum pay rates for district employees.The goal is to keep the district competitive with others in the state, as well as with other local governments and private employers. But commissioners feel taking benefits into account is crucial to understanding compensation.District Director Michael Doyle said staff compared benefits with various other Florida mosquito districts and Monroe County governments.In the end, we came out about in the middle in terms of how much we spend on benefits. Were almost dead center, Doyle said. Theyre good but theyre average among mosquito control agencies. Holdens study includes a small increase in starting salary for most positions, but the majority have a much smaller range to reach maximum pay levels. Todays board meeting is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. at 35 Ocean Reef Drive in Ocean Reef in North Key Largo. Other agenda items include:A public review of Doyles 87-question performance evaluation.The board approved the 14-page document at its meeting last month and all five commissioners filled it out in advance of todays session. Doyle said hes spoken with three commissioners privately about the review.I got the results back and theres a wide variety, he said.Approving an agreement with the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority for use of its Key West boardroom to host public meetings in return for the FKAA using a Mosquito Control room in Marathon.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL Somebody else wants it.Have something you no longer need?

An amputee who uses a wheelchair learned early Monday morning that resisting police officers while repeatedly cursing them out can get you Tased twice. James Miller, 58, whom jail records say lives on the streets of Key West, was arrested about 2:25 a.m. at the Circle K store at the entrance to Key Colony Beach in the Middle Keys. Hes being held without bond on two felony charges each of battery on a law officer, assault on a law officer and resisting arrest with violence; and one felony count of smuggling contraband into jail. Key Colony police officer Colleen Gonzalez wrote in her arrest report that she came upon Miller sleeping next to the convenience store near the parking lot. She approached him and could see only his baseball cap because he was wrapped in a blanket. She asked to see his hands, to which he responded with an expletive. She continued questioning him but Miller refused to cooperate. When asked his name, Gonzalez wrote, he replied he could be anyone he wanted to be. Meanwhile, Gonzalez had called the Sheriffs Office for backup. Miller reportedly began to pull himself to a seated position to attach his prosthetic right leg while continuing to make verbal threats to come back and hunt me down like a ... dog. Gonzalez told him to show his hands and to quit trying to attach the leg, but he wouldnt listen, the officer wrote. Deputy Danielle Malone arrived and tried to steady Millers wheelchair as he tried to ease into it but then he poked Malone in the eye. He also scratched Malones face and grabbed Gonzalezs wrist, leaving a small bruise. Malone got away from Miller, and Gonzalez Tased him in his upper torso and stomach. He tried pulling out the prongs and getting away, but Malone Tased him again. He fell and was handcuffed, and taken to jail. The arrest report doesnt say what contraband he tried to smuggle into jail.

As long-held plans for building a public park at the Truman Waterfront in Key West progress, a Monday night joint meeting of two advisory boards renewed the emphasis for the development to create a direct benefit to the adjacent Bahama Village neighborhood. The U.S. Navy deeded the 33-acre parcel to the city in 2002 as an economic development conveyance. Of that, 6.6 acres were set aside to create tax revenue for Bahama Village with mixeduse construction. As plans changed over the years, the 6.6 acres were absorbed back into the larger site, city staff told members of the Bahama Village Community Redevelopment Committee and Truman Waterfront Advisory Board at the session in Key Wests Old City Hall. Theres no [dedicated] 6.6 acres, said Doug Bradshaw, the citys port and marina services director. City Planner Don Craig added that the original purpose of the 6.6 acres was to provide a direct economic benefit to Bahama Village plus key elements of the plan for developing the park, which will have a community center, multi-use field and landscaping on three of the 6.6 acres. Those elements are still in the plan, Craig said. The community center is part of the planned first phase of construction and was predicated on demolition of the Police Athletic League building on the site. Craig said the new plan is to delay the demolition until a new community center is built in 2016 so as to not displace the youth activities like boxing that take place there.In my opinion, that Police Athletic League building has the greatest direct impact on Bahama Village, said Truman Waterfront Advisory Board member Robert Cintron.The city has a commitment to PAL, Craig agreed. Its a very important component of the park and it serves as that direct benefit to Bahama Village. Commissioner Clayton Lopez, whose District 6 includes Bahama Village, wants to revive the previous plan of mixed-use commercial and residential construction on a portion of the property. That would create tax money for reinvestment in public works projects in Bahama Village.Lopez described an extension of the park to include affordable housing, artists space and small businesses.

Yes, I said in an annoyed way, thinking it was someone selling me something. She said, This is CVS in Islamorada. Do you have your wallet? I checked my back left pocket and it was empty no wallet.There is no worse feeling than reaching for your wallet home to your money, credit cards, drivers license, fishing license and all of your other IDs and cards and not finding it. And there is no better feeling than to realize you cant find your wallet and have someone say, We found your wallet.I had paid for my purchase at CVS with a credit card and rested my wallet on the top part of shopping cart. I then collected my package and went to my car. My wallet, however, remained in the shopping cart. It seems some unknown customers took my cart, noticed my wallet and turned it in to the checkout clerk. The clerk then turned it over to Bernie Harrison, the store manager, who locked it up in his office. He looked up my name and cell phone number and had a clerk call me with the great news. When I later returned to CVS at mile marker 82 and spoke to Mr. Harrison, I asked if I could leave a reward for their honesty and efficiency. He just said, I just looked up your name and phone number and had our clerk call you. Its our pleasure to serve you. Im left with nothing to add except that honesty is alive and well in Islamorada and at CVS at mile marker 82. Thank you, all. Ron Feldman Long KeyCleaner canals likelyI hosted the Eden Pines canal restoration demonstration pilot program neighborhood meeting on March 5 and would like to thank the large number of concerned Eden Pines property owners who attended. The questions that were addressed by guest speakers Rhonda Haag and Wendy Blondin were enlightening. Everyones involvement is essential and will make a difference in helping to save our canal system. Property owners will bear no expense or responsibility for the construction of the proposed pumping system. Following a two-year monitoring program, assuming the program succeeds and restores the canal to acceptable water-quality levels, Eden Pines property owners will share the system maintenance costs. It is estimated that the maintenance cost will be approximately $24 per year per property owner. Thats roughly 6.7 cents per day for the ability to fully enjoy our waterways again. I understand those who may view the project with caution and skepticism. Pumping is an application that may or may not work in this complex canal system. Having been selected to participate in the countys pilot canal restoration program should be viewed as a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to participate in something worthwhile. Its a win-win situation a restored healthy waterway if the system works and no maintenance costs to owners if the proposed pumping system fails to provide the required federal water quality standard. If you are not familiar with the program, please visit the Countys website at www.monroecounty-fl.gov. Click on the programs tab in the upper righthand corner and select canal restoration from the pull-down menu. For property owners who have received their homeowner determination letter from the countys contracted representative, AMEC Environ ment & Infrastructure Inc., it is important that you respond. For those who have not received their notification from AMEC, please contact Wendy Blondin at email@example.com or call her at (305) 298-9431. Donna Lorenzo Big Pine Key The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is a blend of complex marine tropical ecosystems. There are the offshore spur and groove coral reefs, the shallowand deep-coral patch reefs, the rubble zones, the shifting sand bottoms, the grass flats, the nearshore algae flats, the intertidal zones. All together, they create a marine ecosystem unique in the continental United States. This complex, interactive ecology makes up the marine environment that is the foundation of our sanctuary, our economy, our recreation, our very lives. We are locally and nationally charged with the conservation, the preservation and the restoration of this ecosystem, and not just the species and areas we consider commercially and recreationally valuable. We know that ecosystem management, in addition to fisheries management of species valuable to our economy, is essential for preservation and restoration of not only our marine fishery resources, but also to the ecology that supports the living foundations of our marine ecosystems. Proper environmental zoning provides the environmental structure where fisheries, recreation, and a natural ecology can coexist, and will preserve the Keys ecosystems for our future and our childrens future. Marine protected areas are not established to directly manage the stocks of fish and invertebrates that are the basis of commercial and recreational fisheries. MPAs are established to protect and preserve the biodiversity, ecology and the natural balance of marine ecosystems.The populations of commercially and recreationally valuable marine fish and invertebrates are not like products in a supermarket where the shelves are restocked whenever necessary. Supermarket products are independent of all other products and they are restocked independently of each other; there is no ecological interaction.When peanut butter is sold out, it does not have to reproduce itself to restock the shelves. Peanut butter in a supermarket also does not have a complicated life cycle of larval, juvenile and adult stages that are both prey and predator and where each stage must fit into a complicated relationship with thousands of other species that are part of a complex ecology developed over millions of years.Natural living resources have to retain the biological capacity to reproduce and grow within an ecological balance. When one species is removed by disease (diadema sea urchins, for example) or diminished by fishing pressure (spiny lobsters, for example), every other species in that ecosystem responds to the loss, sometimes dramatically, sometimes subtly. But the ecosystem changes, and not for the better.To preserve natural biodiversity and ecology, and importantly, the natural reproductive capacity of every species in a heavily exploited ecosystem, there has to be zoning that allows for economic use and also undisturbed sanctuary areas where natural life cycles and biological interactions of all species can occur without human intervention that causes ecological change. As human populations increase, this was, and is, a hard lesson for us to learn. The effectiveness of marine protected areas is well documented in the worldwide scientific literature. A summary of the effectiveness of MPAs was documented in a scientific survey of more than 100 marine reserves worldwide by the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans. Scientists found:A 446 percent average increase in biomass of animals and plants.A 166 percent average increase in number of plants or animals.A 1,000 percent increase in biomass and populations density of heavily fished species.A 28 percent average increase in body size of animals.A 21 percent average increase in species density.Without effective zoning that provides for economic use under proper fisheries and usage management and MPAs of the appropriate size that will preserve the natural ecology of our marine ecosystems, our precious coral reefs and associated ecosystems will continue to decline, and so will our local economy and our future in the Keys.The focus of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the Advisory Council is on ecosystem preservation and restoration, not development of adverse and arbitrary laws and regulations. It is a difficult process and the input and understanding of the community is critical to its success. Islamorada resident Martin Moe is a retired marine biologist and a member of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council. He has written books about marine life, specifically spiny lobster.Against many odds, he brought state out of the woods, into modern eraReviewing the life and accomplishments of former Florida Gov. Reubin Askew, who died last Thursday at 85, the most enduring thought that comes to mind is that they just dont make em like they used to. His death provokes mourning for the passing of a man whose devotion to the cause of good government did so much to improve Florida and the lives of its residents. It also arouses nostalgia for an era when leaders prized a reputation for integrity and worked hard to uphold it. Mr. Askew was born in a hard-scrabble town whose very name evokes the American heartland Muskogee, Okla. After his parents divorced, he moved with his mother to Pensacola and was raised there amid a political environment steeped in the ways of the Old South and a belief in rural control of the Legislature. That did not stop him, after he was elected to the Florida Senate in 1962, from helping force the pork-chop senators to surrender political power under the principle of one man, one vote. Nor did his roots in a conservative region of the state keep him from championing progressive causes designed to push Florida into the modern era. He was a new kind of southern politician, battling not only to increase representation for urban areas but, more courageously, upholding the principle of equality and pushing for desegregation.When he ran against Gov. Claude Kirk in 1970, the acerbic incumbent called him, among other things, a mommas boy, a nice, sweet-looking fellow, and horrors! a liberal. Mr. Askews victory by a margin of 57-43 showed that Floridians were eager for new leadership.Mr. Askew served two four-year terms as governor, a remarkable and productive eight-year period in the 1970s that created laws that changed Florida forever and gave Floridians a reason to have faith in government.His signal achievement was turning Florida into the Sunshine State, etching transparency into the states legal code and Constitution over the opposition of many in his own Democratic Party. In the end, he was forced to turn to the voters to win approval for the Sunshine Amendment it carried by 78 percent of the vote forcing financial disclosure by public officials. He gained passage of the states first corporate income tax and modernized the judiciary. He named the first black justice of the Florida Supreme Court. Throughout it all, he maintained an unequaled and enviable reputation for personal integrity that allowed him to avoid a number of government scandals that tarnished others in Tallahassee. They dont make em like Reubin Askew any longer. Mores the pity for us.

Floridas jobless rate continues to be an ally for Gov. Rick Scott. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dipped to 6.1 percent in January from 6.3 percent in December. The drop comes despite the state losing an estimated 2,600 non-agricultural jobs between December and January, with some of the biggest hits taken in the fields of retail sales, education and health services, along with leisure and hospitality.Scott used the release of the monthly numbers Monday to argue his policies have helped the state record 500,000 new private-sector jobs since his potential Democratic gubernatorial challenger Charlie Crist left the governors mansion after the 2010 elections.Florida remains below the national jobless mark of 6.7 percent, which was announced March 7.Across the state, Monroe County (the Florida Keys) continues to have the lowest jobless numbers, largely due to government jobs. The county recorded a 3.8 percent jobless rate in January, up from 3.5 percent in December.Walton County, the next lowest, grew from 4.0 percent in December to 4.2 percent, while both Alachua and Okaloosa counties increased from 4.6 percent to 5.0 percent.Hendry County, impacted by long-term cuts in state government jobs, continues to hold the highest jobless mark, growing from 9.2 percent in December to 9.8 percent.In terms of job creation, the U.S. Department of Labor noted Monday that Floridas 192,800 job increase during the past year trailed only Texas and California, with each posting more than 300,000 new jobs. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, however, revised upward its December jobless rate, which had been announced in January at 6.2 percent. The revision also altered most county and regional rates. Still, the January seasonally adjusted monthly jobless mark a statistical technique that eliminates recurring events such as weather, holidays and the school calendar is the lowest for Florida since June 2008. Without the seasonal adjustment, Floridas mark would be 6.3 percent.Unlike employment numbers that are based on a surveyed sample of employers, the jobless rate is based upon the estimates of the number of people employed and actively seeking employment.The jobs report comes a little more than a month after the Legislatures Office of Economic and Demographic Research concluded that 53.1 percent of the states drop in unemployment between December 2011 and December 2013 was due to people dropping out of the labor force or delaying entry. Without people dropping out, the unemployment rate in December would have been 7.9 percent, said the Feb. 13 report titled Florida: An Economic Overview.The state employment numbers for February are scheduled to be released March 28.

Fire broke out on Wisteria Island off Key West sometime overnight Sunday and was apparently extinguished by heavy rains Monday night.U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West Ensign Peter Bermont said a crew conducted a search of the area Sunday night beginning around 8 p.m. after seeing three flares go up near 22acre island, long an encampment for the homeless and a haven for near-derelict boats. It used to be known as Christmas Tree Island. Bermont said that search and one conducted at first light Monday turned up nothing about the flares, but searchers did spot the fire and called the Key West Fire Department. City spokeswoman Alyson Crean said a fire boat was dispatched but was clearly limited in fighting a fire on the island.We did everything we could, she said, but the island is so overgrown. There were no injuries reported, she said.When developer Roger Bernstein launched a plan to develop Wisteria into an upscale resort like the adjacent Sunset Key, a protracted challenge of ownership ensued. The U.S. government has asserted ownership, which Bernstein disputes.

By the time the search wrapped three days later, detectives had found 10 kilos of cocaine (more than 22 pounds), more than two pounds of marijuana, 2,100 Xanax bars, 1,300 Oxycodone pills, a 7.5-gram cookie of crack, about 700 undersize lobster tails and $252,261 in cash believed to be drug proceeds, according to law enforcement records.Juan Soca Sr., 63, is charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and possession with intent to distribute cocaine, according to the indictment. Juan Soca Jr., 42, is charged with the same cocainerelated charges, plus possession with intent to distribute marijuana and Oxycodone.Wilson said because both have previous drug-related convictions, they face a maximum sentence of life in prison.Jose Soca, 38, is charged with the same cocaine charges as his dad and brother plus possession with intent to distribute the Xanax and Oxycodone. He also faces life in prison.The trio is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center with a collective bond of more than $13 million.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSSheriff offers land for shelterWith Monroe County and Key West elected leaders agreeing that a new homeless shelter should be built at a former Stock Island Easter Seals building, theres now preliminary talk about how to use the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter site that will be vacated. The 140-bed KOTS is next to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on public property on College Road.Last week, the County Commission and Key West City Commission, in a joint meeting, agreed the Easter Seals location would be best for a new 24-hour, seven-daya-week shelter. Following up on that meeting, Sheriff Rick Ramsay and Mayor Craig Cates met Friday.Cates said Ramsay offered to work with the city to build an assisted living facility on the agencys property. City staff has worked with two would-be developers to build an assisted living facility on part of the Truman Waterfront, but both deals fell apart when a lease was being negotiated. There is a large piece where KOTS is now, Cates said, that could be used. Its a great location near the hospital with open water views.He said Ramsay would shop the idea at to county officials while Cates does the same with the City Commission.Cates sent City Attorney Shawn Smith an e-mail on Friday summarizing the mayors meeting with the sheriff. Smith passed it on to the other six commissioners.Commissioner Tony Yaniz, a Cates critic, responded to Smith saying he wouldnt support moving KOTS or replacing it with an assisted living development.Yaniz added: Further more, Ive about had it with the mayor making unilateral decisions and backroom deals without the involvement of the rest of the commission.The city spends around $450,000 per year to operate KOTS, which is open from sun up to sundown. Its being forced to close through a settlement with the next-door Sunset Marina Condominium Homeowners Association, which sued to have KOTS shuttered.The legal impetus to open another shelter comes from the class-action Pottinger case. That lawsuit was filed against the city of Miami in 1988. In 1992, a federal court prohibited Miami police from arresting the homeless when they were engaged in involuntary, harmless acts even if they violate local codes.That means unless a shelter is available, Key West police cant enforce municipal laws against things like camping in public, loitering or trespassing.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTFire breaks out on Wisteria IslandKEY WESTCHALLENGE DAY Challenge Day, a program of the Be the Change organization that aims to teach young people respect, tolerance and leadership, returned to Key West, Marathon and Coral Shores high schools last week.

Combined for T-ball, minor and major baseball, junior baseball and softball, 147 kids turned out. OPENING DAY Tight rivalry ends with splitMarathon High School tennis coaches Chris Bull and Cindy Durkin picked the perfect match on Friday to hold their annual fan appreciation event. The crowd was treated not only to pizza and refreshments, but to a pair of closely contested boys and girls matches against rival Key West High School at the Marathon Community Park. The Dolphin boys pulled out a 4-3 victory over the Conchs, while the Key West girls defeated Marathon by the same score. The Key West coaches and kids are great opponents for us. There are lots of good matches going on and a minimal of issues considering its a rival match. This is always one of my favorite matches of the season and tonight did not disappoint, Bull said on Friday. Key West coach Bill Butler said he was pleased to see the competitive matches and his girls beating Marathon. We werent able to get that close to them in past years, he said. We tried to emphasize to the girls before that match that Marathon is a serious program and you have to eliminate the unforced errors, particularly not getting that first serve in. We worked a lot on that. Both matches were tied 3-3 after five singles matches and No. 1 doubles, meaning it was the No. 2 doubles squads that decided each one. Marathons Will Wolfe and Jamine Guo defeated Colin Hetzler and Chun Poon, 8-3, on the boys side. On the girls side, the Conchs Fernanda Caceras and Tatum Flowers outlasted Ariana Patterson and Andie Devitt, 8-1. I think we found our boys No. 2 doubles team, Bull said. Will Wolfe got started late but has really improved this season. He loves doubles and is a good compliment to Jamine. I was happy to see his first varsity win for him but also it was the clincher for the team win.

See Tennis, 3B Conchs rollingThe Key West High baseball team came from behind to win again and, as has been the case all season, a bunt played a big factor. With the score tied 3-3 Saturday night at Rex Weech Field, the Conchs Steven Wells led off the bottom of the seventh inning with a walk. The next batter, Andy Perez, attempted to sacrifice Wells to second base, but his bunt landed safely behind Calusa Prep pitcher Hector Montano for a hit. Greg Veliz then hit a fly to left that advanced both runners. Up stepped Hugo Valdez to face Montano, a little lefty who had thrown more than 120 pitches in a gritty attempt to quell the Conchs. Valdes had already struck out twice and seemed on the verge of a third whiff when Montano got two strikes on him. But his next pitch was wild, and Wells streaked safely across the plate to give the Conchs a 4-3 victory and complete a two-game sweep of the visitors from Miami.This time it was better to be lucky than good, coach Ralph Henriquez said of Perezs bunt, but in almost all of our games, a bunt has led to something good.

The blackfin tuna are biting pretty well at the humps, with lots of fish in the 10to 12-pound range and even some as large as 20 to 25 pounds. Trolling works well, but the biggest fish are being caught either on live baits presented 200-plus feet deep or by butterfly jigging.The dolphin population spiked over the weekend, with anglers finding them on their way to or from the humps. So keep an eye out for birds, especially frigates, and be ready for slammer-size fish, as they are typically plentiful early in the season.The area to try for dolphin right now is vast anywhere and everywhere from the reef edge all the way out to the depths. Trolled ballyhoo and lures both work, but if the fish are finicky, pitch a live bait, such as ballyhoo, pinfish or small jack or blue runner, and you should get the big ones fish in a feeding mood.If you have no luck with tuna or dolphin, break out the electric gear and fish for snowy grouper, tilefish andAnd dolphin showing up, some largeFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSChris Johnson CaptainsColumnSee Conchs, 2BSee Fishing, 3B
A difficult midseason stretch continued this past weekend for the Marathon High School softball team at the annual Slam Fest tournament hosted by Gulliver Prep in Miami.The girls split four games over the weekend, beating Naples Lely High School, 6-5, and Doral Academy, 7-3. They lost to Class-7A Osceola High School, 3-2, and Cypress Bay High School, 14-2.First up was Osceola on Friday, a game that coach Sean McDonald said the Dolphins could have won if not for defensive miscues. No. 1 starter Jordan Roney pitched a complete game and allowed just one earned run. Osceola was a really well-coached team. We had three errors and ended up losing. Only one of their runs was earned, McDonald said. Next up was Naples Lely, also Friday, in a game started by seventh-grader Grace Kirwan. She pitched well, allowing five runs over four innings before being replaced by Roney.Senior Ashlyn Katz made a heads-up play in the top of the seventh inning, heading to second base after a single to confuse the Naples Lely infield.

A lot of teams dont spend time on bunt defense, Henriquez said. Calusa Prep had taken a 3-0 lead in the third against Brandon Presley, who struck out nine in five and two thirds innings, but the Conchs came back in their half of the inning with two runs on a double by Perez and a sacrifice fly by Veliz. An error on a sacrifice bunt by Jay Feathers in the bottom of the fifth led to an RBI fielders choice by Veliz that tied the score at 3-3. Wells moved from center field to relieve Feathers with two outs and a man on second in the top of the sixth. Hes our Mariano Rivera, radio announcer Judd Wise shouted. Wells got the next batter and pitched a scoreless seventh. Henriquez, at the seasons outset, had intended for the more experienced Darren Miller to be the closer, but after Miller got hurt, Wells stepped into the job. Key West, now 11-2, won on Friday night, 8-4, behind the pitching of Veliz, who improved to 5-0, allowing no runs and two hits in five innings. Miller hit a two-run homer, his second of the season for a team that has 11.

The Lady Canes (3-5) held Miamis Palmetto to a single goal in the second half and escaped with a 5-3 decision in the match at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium.Goalkeeper Courtney Caputo snared seven saves behind a defense that worked hard to keep the [Palmetto] Panthers at bay, Cane head coach Mark Hall said.The outcome was a muchneeded district win that snapped the Canes four-game losing streak, said the coach.Morgan Champagne and Mallory Eakin each scored two Hurricane goals, with Claire Brutger adding the fifth.Coral Shores pulled out to a 4-1 lead in the first half before the Panthers got a late goal that made it 4-2 at the break. Each team scored once in the second half. Results from a game earlier this week against Palmer Trinity were pending at press time. The Lady Canes take the home field this Friday in the opener of a doubleheader between Coral Shores and Killian High of Miami. The girls teams play at 5 p.m., the boys at 7. Coral Shores boys stood at 2-3 before a Tuesday game at University School in Broward County.

Kyle Pierce started against the Warriors Friday and pitched well most of the game, Marathon coach Luis Leal said. He allowed seven hits but Westminster made the most of them.All the way around, its a tiny field, Leal said. He just made four mistakes where he left the ball over the plate and they didnt miss them. The Dolphins struggled again offensively on Monday, with just one hit through six innings. They also made nine infield errors, which combined led to a 7-0 deficit heading into the last inning.The first two batters in the top of the seventh struck out, but Marathon came alive with two outs and had a chance to tie the game. A walk and two hit batsmen loaded the bases, and Gonzalez, Jesse DeLuca, Pierce and Raymond Crespo all followed with hits to bring the Dolphins within two runs.Pierce and Crespo were on second and third base with two outs, but Elliott popped out to the pitcher to end the game.The Dolphins (7-8) are off this week until a scheduled Spring Break trip to Tampa.

Be sure to check the current regulations, and remember that you are allowed just one snowy per vessel.The amberjack bite on the wrecks remains quite active and should continue into the coming weeks, with plenty of 30to 50-pound fishing eating just about any live offering. There are some mutton snapper to be picked from the wrecks, as well. For these, youll want smaller live baits, such as pilchards, ballyhoo and small pinfish. The yellowtail action on the reef has been spotty. Some day the fish bite aggressively and other days they dont show at all. This is another fishery that will improve dramatically in the coming weeks.Kingfish are abundant from the wrecks to the reef to Hawk Channel. Most average 10 to 20 pounds, but there are enough smokers to keep things interesting. Live baits are key pilchards, small to medium blue runners and shrimp on a jighead retrieved erratically back to the boat. When targeting kings, remember to use a trace of wire to prevent bite offs.The weeks bestRich Needham of Boseman, Mont., traded his snowplow for a tarpon trip with Capt. Chuck Brodzki.
