Stories, 1BKeynoter photo by WILLIAM AXFORDMIXED BAG FOR OPENING KICKOFFSHoliday deadly for one visitorA Labor Day lobster-diving trip near Big Pine Key proved fatal for a Georgia man.Larry Rowan, 59, of Tifton, Ga., didnt return to a private boat anchored near the Spanish Harbor Bridge, according to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Rowans body was found about 4:30 p.m. Monday, more than an hour after companions reported him missing. He was still clad in his dive gear when found in shallows near a flat about half a mile from his boat. There was no injury or other obvious cause of death. An autopsy was scheduled.Rowan was with his brother-in-law and a friend when all three entered the water around 1:30 p.m. and went their separate ways to seek lobster, according to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Both other divers returned to the boat. At 3:15 p.m., they realized Rowan had not returned for a new dive tank or left lobster aboard. The U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission joined the search.Since Jan. 1, at least 11 people have died in Florida Keys waters while snorkeling or scuba diving.Rowans death was the most serious accident reported over the three-day holiday weekend that drew large numbers of visitors to the Keys.Northbound traffic Monday was heavy as visitors left, with frequent stoppages on U.S. 1 between Key Largo and Florida City. Delays also were reported in the Middle Keys.Traffic was heavy but most of it was just due to the number of vehicles, said Deputy Becky Herrin, Sheriffs Office information officer.The Sheriffs Office and the Florida Highway Patrol arrested eight people duringLobster diver dies off the Lower Keys, numerous people jailed for DUI, BUILABOR DAY WEEKEND Highsmith on Acevedo: No problemKey West attorney Bobby Highsmith, who was elected to the Monroe County School Board on Aug. 26 and will be sworn in on Nov. 18, says he doesnt regret providing a job reference for convicted felon Randy Acevedo. Acevedo, 48, was convicted of three felony counts of official misconduct in 2009 for covering up his then-wife Moniques theft of some $400,000 from the School District when Randy was superintendent and his wife was a senior administrator.Randy Acevedo, removed from office by then-Gov. Charlie Crist, got three years of probation and was ordered to pay a $15,000 fine. Monique Acevedo is in the middle of an eight-year prison stretch. They divorced in April.On his ninth time applying for a job at the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, Randy Acevedo was hired a week and a half ago as a computer programmer at $45,379 annually. The utility provides the Keys with potable water and builds and operates sewer systems in Monroes unincorporated areas.Tuesday, Highsmith said he and Acevedo have been lifetime friends, and he didnt hesitate when Acevedo asked for the reference to put on his job application. Our families attend the same church and I graduated from high school with his younger brother, Highsmith said in a prepared statement responding to questions from this newspaper about the reference.

Its part of a plan approved earlier this year to bring emergency medical services in-house rather than continue contracting them out to a private company. To ensure no interruption of service, the commission is also expected to extend its month-to-month contract with the private provider tonight in case more time is needed. Three new ambulances are not to exceed $387,291. A used ambulance is expected to cost $8,209. The ambulances will be at each of the citys fire stations, on Simonton Street, North Roosevelt Boulevard and Kennedy Drive. The fourth will be housed at a new Angela Street firehouse and will be used as a backup unit and for special events. City emergency medical services are now provided by a company called Care/American. Commis sioners and firefighters are planning for an April 1 deadline to have the Key West Fire Department take over but tonight, Care/ Americans $45,000 monthly contract is likely to be extended through next June on a month-to-month basis if needed in case the commission-imposed deadline isnt met. This is something thats been a long time in the making, said Commissioner Billy Wardlow. If we cant meet our deadline, well have to extend Care/ Americans contract. About $2.5 million has been appropriated to transfer EMS services from Care/American to the Fire Department.

When Lanell WilliamsYulee began running for a Hillsborough County judgeship in 2009, she signed a letter to would-be supporters seeking contributions for her campaign. Now, five years later, Williams-Yulees letter could spur the U.S. Supreme Court to wade into a First Amendment debate about whether it is constitutional for Florida and other states to bar judicial candidates from personally soliciting campaign contributions. Williams-Yulees attorneys have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue after the Florida Supreme Court in May rejected arguments that the ban is unconstitutional and found that Williams-Yulee violated a code of conduct. The possibility of the U.S. Supreme Court taking up the issue got a boost last month when The Florida Bar which filed the complaint against Williams-Yulee also urged the high court to resolve the matter. The Bar said in an Aug. 22 brief that it stands behind its position that judicial candidates should not personally solicit contributions, but that appellate courts across the country have taken differing positions on the issue. The issues at the heart of the conflicts are not such that they can accommodate different interpretations and applications in different jurisdictions and judicial forums without insulting fundamental principles, said the brief filed by Bar attorneys Barry Richard and Hope Keating. In this instance, the conflicts deal with the proper balance between two compelling interests at the heart of a free and just society. The manner in which that balance is struck should be applied uniformly to all citizens in all places and before all tribunals. The Florida Supreme Court, in a 5-2 ruling May 1, reiterated earlier positions that the ban on judicial candidates soliciting money promotes the states compelling interests in preserving the integrity of the judiciary and maintaining the publics confidence in an impartial judiciary, and that it is narrowly tailored to effectuate those interests. Chief Justice Jorge Labarga and justices Barbara Pariente, R. Fred Lewis, Peggy Quince and James E. Perry were in the majority, while justices Charles Canady and Ricky Polston dissented. How to ruin your threeday Labor Day weekend: Get in a fight at a convenience store while drunk, continue the fight even when police intervene, fight the police officer trying to arrest you, knock his radio microphone from his shoulder, get pepper-sprayed, then rub some of the pepper spray in the officers face. That, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, is what Tavernier bartender Sara Henderson, 33, did around 3 a.m. Monday. Spokeswoman Becky Herrin says Deputy Michael Claudy was at the Circle K at mile marker 92 when he saw Henderson and another women arguing in the parking lot. He separated them but Henderson, who was obviously intoxicated, Herrin said, wouldnt calm down and continued to scream and try to attack the other woman. Herrin said Claudy warned Henderson numerous times to stop yelling and threatened to arrest her for disorderly intoxication. He finally told her she was under arrest and tried to handcuff her. She pulled away and began to fight, knocking Claudys microphone off his shirt so he couldnt call for backup. Henderson reportedly then started kicking Claudy, so he peppersprayed her in the face. Herrin said that as he tried to reach for his microphone, Henderson rubbed her hands on her face and then rubbed pepper spray on Claudys face. He finally reached his microphone and called for help. Henderson is charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on a law enforcement officer, depriving an officer of his means of communication and resisting arrest with violence. She was released from jail on $9,500 bond later Monday morning. The woman with whom Henderson argued tried to help Claudy during the brouhaha, Herrin said. She didnt say what they were arguing about. scholarship.He added, I assure you that there was no one who felt more upset, hurt, disappointed, angry and betrayed by what Randy and Monique did than me and the rest of the Key West Conch-camp that your prior editorial referenced. However, our anger and pain were balanced against our love for our friend and our compassion for the pain that his children, parents, brother and other family members suffered as a result.Randy was convicted, sentenced and as far as I know successfully completed all of the requirements of his sentence. I am not aware that his sentence contained any prohibition against seeking public employment again.Highsmith wrote that Randy had asked me several years ago, before I had even contemplated running for public office, if he could list me as a reference, and I agreed. Frankly, I had not heard any more about it until I was visiting FKAA recently and was told he had just been hired. I believe in forgiveness, redemption and second chances, and I am confident that Randy will make the most of this opportunity and continue to do everything in his power to regain the public trust.At the School District, the board has hiring power for only one person, the superintendent. The superintendent is charged with all other hires.But asked if it were in his purview to hire and Acevedo applied, Highsmith wrote, I do not believe that it is appropriate for individual School Board members to lobby the superintendent regarding individual employment issues, and it is not a practice that I will engage in as a School Board member.If Randy were to ask me today for a reference for employment at the School District, I would tell him no. First, as a member elected to the School Board, I dont think it appropriate for me to serve as a reference for anyone seeking employment there. Second, in Randys case, as his friend, and even if I were no longer on the board, I would tell him that from a practical standpoint, there was simply too much water over the dam at the School District and that it would be a bad idea for him to try to work there again.Suit: Money limit unconstitutionalCase based on judges asking for donationsBy JIM SAUNDERSNews Service of FloridaIN THE COURTS KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday, September 3, 2014 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW WED.9181 THURS.9181 FRI.9181 SAT.9181 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of thunderstorms.For the extended forecast visitKeysInfoNet.com/weather.The Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

Two men were booked into the Monroe County jail by FWC officers on counts of operating a boat while under the influence. Daryl Burgess, 24, of Stock Island was flown by helicopter ambulance to a Miami hospital for injuries suffered when the Jeep he was driving before dawn Saturday crashed into a trailered boat on the islands Fourth Avenue. After being released from the hospital Sunday, Burgess was arrested on car-theft charges when it was discovered the white Jeep Cherokee was not his. There were quite a few people here, but for the most part it was pretty much a typical three-day weekend, Key West spokeswoman Alyson Crean said Tuesday. No major boating accidents were reported, FWC spokesman Officer Bobby Dube. There were a lot of boats but the winds kept them mostly in-shore, he said.Few problems seen over the weekendFrom Weekend, 1A possession, and one misdemeanor count of misusing 911. According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, the home invasion happened early May 27 at Moirs Grassy Key home, and Moir was shot in the leg during it. The suspects reportedly stole heroin and cocaine. Moir was arrested Aug. 4, charged with the drug crimes following a Sheriffs Office search of his home. At the time of the robbery, Moir said three robbers forced their way in his home and during a struggle with them, he was shot, Sheriffs information officer Becky Herrin said. Moir said he ran from the house and another round was fired at him, striking an outside storage trailer.Another man jailed in invasionFrom Van Buren, 1A Cops: Man crashes stolen CherokeeA Stock Island man is cooling out the Florida Keys jail with no bond allowed after allegedly stealing a 1997 Jeep Cherokee from Stock Island, then crashing it into a trailered boat Daryl Burgess, 24, faces a shopping list of charges: Grand theft auto, fleeing with disregard for others, driving with a suspended or revoked license, burglary of an occupied dwelling, reckless driving-causing damage to person or property, and petty theft. According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and a Key West Police Department report, Burgess, whom jail booking says is a student, is accused of stealing the Jeep around 5:35 p.m. Saturday from Edward Dalton III of Fogerty Avenue. Shortly later they received a report of it traveling on Maloney Avenue, swerving with no headlights on. Sheriffs Office Deputy John Gabay was in the area and spotted the Jeep exiting the Ocean Spray Trailer Park, pulled up next to it and shined a spotlight inside. The driver, later identified as Burgess, looked at the deputy, then took off back up Maloney Avenue toward U.S. 1. As Gabay turned on his lights and siren, Burgess reportedly made a left onto 4th Avenue, swerved several times, swerved again to avoid a collision with a garbage truck, then lost control, running across lanes of traffic and hitting a boat parked on a trailer beside the road. Burgess was injured in the crash and taken to Lower Keys Medical Center. There, Deputy Matt Dowling searched Burgess pockets to see if he had any weapons. In Burgess pockets he had a camera, a pink iPod and an insurance card not in his name. The insurance card belonged to a woman who lives on Fogarty Avenue. The camera and iPod reportedly were stolen from a Honda Accord parked at that address.Burgess was airlifted to a Miami hospital the night of the crash for treatment of possible internal injuries, but was released the next day and taken to the Keys jail.After short chase, it hits trailered boatCRIME FRONTBoard looks at revised budgetA revised budget small tweaks for the new fiscal year awaits Monroe County commissioners at a 5 p.m. hearing today in Key Largo.The hearing is the first of three sessions scheduled to set the countys final fiscal year 2014-15 budget and tax rate for unincorporated Monroe County. Currently the unincorporated county budget, including the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, needs a tax rate of 3.948 mills. That would require a property with a taxable assessed value of $200,000 to pay about $790. The countys millage rate listed in what are called Truth in Millage notices stands 3 percent above the rollback rate, or the tax rate required to raise the same $80 million in property-tax revenue as in the current fiscal year. Weve been able to find some additional revenue and tweak some proposed expenditures, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said Tuesday. Were still working on it, but we hope to go to the commission with a 2.75 percent rate over rollback, Gastesi said. The meeting begins at 5:05 p.m. at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102 on Key Largo. The countys main operational budget stands, as proposed, at about $121.4 million. That covers general county operations including Public Works, Growth Management and Fire-Rescue. Elected county officials requested $71.4 million. Most of that is $53.4 million needed for the Sheriffs Office and jails.The overall county budget of about $441 million includes revenue from user fees, permit applications and local shares of state and federal taxes, among other sources.Property owners have to pay separate school taxes, municipal taxes and specialdistrict taxes, if any.Other budget hearings will be held at 5:05 p.m. Monday at the Marathon Government Center at mile marker 48.5 oceanside and at 5:05 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue in Key West.At 3 p.m. today in Key Largo, commissioners also will hear an update on sealevel rise projections in Monroe County and anticipated effects on infrastructure and habitat. No votes will be taken at the sealevel meeting. The study will seek to use improved inundation mapping to identify the sections of roadways, critical structures and natural areas that will be affected by sealevel rise projections.Commission meeting today in Key LargoCOUNTY COMMISSION BURGESS HEADSTONESCRYPT FRONTS CUSTOM DESIGNSMAUSOLEUM CONSTRUCTION 305-294-2528ATLAS MEMORIALSMM 10 Big Coppitt Key 8 am to 5 pm Appts.

ambulances, hiring 15 new emergency medical technicians, a medical director and new billing agent are in the works. Michael Davila, division chief of operations for the Fire Department, said the new hires will probably come in March, with each trained as a firefighter and EMT. We currently have 16 paramedics on staff and well have to augment those with additional paramedics, Davila said. Well absolutely have a medical director before we take over this service. Paramedics can administer more drugs and perform procedures beyond what an EMT can. A medical director is needed for paramedics to perform tasks above EMTs. Care/American, whose contract had expired in March, previously didnt charge the city but expected to profit on directly billing patients for transport and services. That didnt work. Care/American had taken over in 2011 from American Medical Response in 2011. The city paid that company $611,000 annually. Care/American responds to about 5,000 calls annually, with about 4,000 of them involving transport to a medical facility.

That would be 9.16 percent higher than this years rollback rate of 2.63 mills.The rollback rate is the tax rate that would raise the same amount of money for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 as the current year. For a $300,000 house, a homeowner would pay $864 a year to the city. This year, the owner of a $300,000 house paid $789. Commissioners have tentatively approved a $56,550,741 budget for the coming fiscal year. The City Commission is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at Old City Hall, 510 Greene St., to set next years tax rate. The second and final budget meeting where the public can give input is at 6 p.m. Sept. 16, also at Old City Hall. The current fiscal years budget is $52,285,480. Of that, $13,875,651 is expected to come from property taxes. The rest would come from user and permit fees, state and federal revenue sharing and the like.Commissioner Billy Wardlow said the tax rate is increasing due to the city bringing its ambulance service in-house as opposed to farming it out, like it does now; continued construction on a new firehouse on Angela Street and a new city hall at the former Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street; and repaving sidewalks and streets, among other things.Hearings set for tonight and Sept. 16By WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comKEY WEST ONE YEAR LATERPhoto by ANDY NEWMANEndurance swimmer Diana Nyad holds up a plaque Monday commemorating her one-year anniversary of swimming 111 miles from Havana, Cuba, to Key West in 52 hours, 54 minutes without the help of a shark cage.

Premature it seems, as the place has been rented every weekend to a different crowd for the past eight weeks. The latest bunch was here this past week. I had to call the Monroe County Sheriffs Office to file a noise complaint at 11:15 p.m. for the music and raucous yelling and shouting. Plus the giant house was lit up like an airport with every light blazing. There were at least 30 people in total with six or more cars stuffed into the driveway and a boat tied off on the dock. Wheres the $2,000 daily fine being charged to the owner? He is still collecting thousands in illegal rent every week and laughing at the county for the million-plus he owes them in fines. According to Monroe County records, Wells Fargo does not own the home. Just the same crook who stole our Medicare money in 2007 and still has his hand in the government cookie jar, renting the place under their noses. Its a shame for all the people who file for permits and do things right to have to put up with this blight on our neighborhood. The county should buy this land, bulldoze the crumbling, rusting house and build a nice park. Stan Sugrue Tavernier We reported last week that former Monroe County School District Randy Acevedo, a convicted felon stemming from his then-wifes theft of $400,000 when she worked at the district while he ultimately was her supervisor, has been hired by a public agency. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, which provides all of the Keys potable water and constructs and maintains sewers in the unincorporated areas except for Key Largo, has hired Acevedo as a computer programmer at $45,379 annually.Then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed Acevedo from office following Acevedos 2009 indictment (he was subsequently convicted) on three felony counts of official misconduct. That he is now employed against in the public sector has drawn strong reaction from our online readers at www.KeysInfoNet :OK, Im sure there were no other qualified candidates in the Keys. Still amazing to me. All for second chances but this is unreal.Give the guy a chance. He made a mistake; cant hold it against him for the rest of his life. Everyone messes up one time or another. I hope he does great.I get that but really? People dream and apply multiple times to get [government] employment and are qualified, so they should be overlooked? And a felon hired? Really, think about that. Wish him all the best in the private sector.Every other convicted felon has his or her conviction held against them for the rest of their lives. Whats special about this felon? He has friends in high places.I was one of the others who applied for the job. I have a computer science degree from one of the top 10 engineering colleges in the USA (constantly ranking higher than Harvard, Princeton, Yale and usually on a par with Stanford). Randy went to some place called Gardner Webb University in North Carolina. I have been programming computers since the 1980s. I currently maintain, troubleshoot and program six Linux and Windows servers and over 40 workstations. I own, develop, design and promote several of the leading Key West and Florida Keys websites.... For those websites, I integrate external databases and content with the local platform.... Perhaps the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would argue that Im overqualified? Isnt the same thing they also said about Randy, but it didnt stop them from hiring him? The truth is that I probably am overqualified, but I now have two sons, a 6-year-old and a new 2-month-old. Its time for me to get serious about a real job with a steady paycheck and benefits. The FKAA would have provided that.Im not sure how long you have been in the Keys but we got a thing down her called the bubba system. These government gravy jobs are already slated for members of this system. The FKAA would not hire Bill Gates himself as a computer programmer if he wasnt connected with the Bubbas in Key West.I am impressed with [the above posters] qualifications. It would be most interesting to find out the real reason he was not hired. Considering the lack of good jobs in the Keys, I disagree with the job being entry level. There is no entry level there.... the playing field is just too small. There is just a job. That means there is no overqualified level like there would be in Miami, Cleveland or anywhere else. Something reeks about this and it isnt dead fish.I like Randy, but passing over someone with [the above posters] qualifications is just nuts.Exactly. No one is questioning him, I hope, but question the process. I know a couple guys in jail (not) that cant wait to get out on misdemeanors thinking the FKAA has a job for them.Sorry but someone convicted of a felony involving poor moral standards should not have access to a computer system that has public information or funding. I am sorry Randy but you and your ex-wife made that bed; now you must lay in it. As for the FKAA, you know the only reason he was hired is because of the good ole boy system, not because he was the most qualified.The FKAA needs to be investigated for this fiasco. Most folks know that this is wrong and the best candidate for the job was probably not even interviewed. For those that this doesnt sit well with, write your county and state representatives and ask for the FKAA be investigated for their hiring practices.The former state attorney [nowFKAA Director Kirk Zuelch] hires him, its all legal, and everyone does get a second chance. I know this is a reach of metaphor but its like putting a child molester in charge of kindergarten. Before anyone complains, I know its far from the same thing, but its the same situation. He needs to work, but in the private sector.More like making a bank robber the treasurer.I understand and appreciate Randy paid his dept to society, however, the fact remains he is a convicted felon and should be barred from working in the public sector.Exactly hes convicted.Not everyone is perfect but many are not felons and couldve easily done this job they saved for him.You just have to laugh at it. Its like the Chicago way in the Keys.The Chicago way is a bit easier to break into. Just get enough signatures on nominating petitions during pre-primary season.... Here it requires drinking with the Bubbas (and probably slipping them a favor or 10) before your conviction to get in.Ungodly amounts of trash left behind by many weekend visitors continues to haunt the Florida Keys. While this may not be a new problem, it is a cancer that eats away at our environmental commitment. Its also a condition that elected officials have been either unable or unwilling to fully address. But the trash keeps piling up.Visitors and residents lament boat-ramp closures. Over the past six months, two popular boat ramps on Card Sound Road in North Key Largo have been shut down by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office because of raucous behavior as well as trash. Dont the visitors many are respectful, many are not realize thats the fallout when those areas are trashed over and over again?This past Labor Day weekend is generally one of the busiest visitor weekends of the year and its also when we see lots of refuse left behind along our roads, at our ramps, at our beaches. It doesnt only affect the boat ramps. On Aug. 16, the founders of the Islamorada Beer Co. organized a cleanup at one of the most popular destinations in the Keys for weekend revelers, the Sandbar on the oceanside of Islamorada. The volunteers retrieved more than 200 pounds of trash, primarily beer bottles. The organizers were certain that at least an equal amount of debris was unable to be retrieved. Monroe County Public Works staff removes between 3,000 and 5,000 pounds of garbage off Keys beaches and mangroves along Card Sound Road every week, says county Mayor Sylvia Murphy. The reason the trash piles up is not because local governments are not supplying an adequate number of trash containers. To the contrary, more containers have been increased at hot spots such as Indian Key Fill in Islamorada. But apparently many visitors either have poor aim or even poorer concern for our community because despite increasing the number of bins, the trash continues to be strewn everywhere. Keys residents feel the effects. While many are happy with efforts to curb weekend revelers from trashing the water and mangroves, they are also concerned about their free water access. Sadly, this is the unfortunate result from many visitors sloppiness. To be sure, not all visitors are slobs. Quite the opposite. Unfortunately, those that are to blame make it increasingly easy for locals to lump everyone together. Sheriff Rick Ramsay has made cleaning trash and painting over graffiti a priority for his agency. And numerous community groups, from the Key Largo Rotary to Reef Relief in Key West to the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key, regularly schedule community cleanups. But being reactive isnt the answer. Somehow, we need to get the message out to our visitors that the Keys are an environmental paradise thats why they visit. Perhaps we should invite some Miami Heat players down here to help the visitors with their shooting skills. Maybe then the trash will end up where it belongs.

The lawsuit, announced at a press conference at the Florida Education Associations headquarters in Tallahassee, is the latest phase of a battle between the union and lawmakers, who approved legislation this spring that would expand eligibility for the program and increase the value of scholarships given to participating students. We want to make sure that all students have a highquality public education and have access to that no matter what their walk of life is, no matter what their capability is, no matter what their disability is, said Joanne McCall, vice president of the FEA. And public schools are the ones that provide that. The Tax Credit Scholar ship Program, which could raise as much as $357.8 million this year, provides tax credits to companies that donate money to nonprofit entities that pay for children to go to private schools. Without the scholarship program, critics say, those tax dollars could be used to help fund public education. But supporters say the program provides better opportunities for lowor middleincome children trapped in failing public schools. Expanding the program was a chief priority of House Speaker Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel) during this springs legislative session. The FEA has filed a separate lawsuit that challenged the Weatherfordbacked legislation, saying it improperly log rolled a series of education issues into a single bill. The expansion, the groups filing Thursdays lawsuit said, helped prompt the legal challenge. Ron Meyer, an attorney for the groups, said while education advocates were willing to allow the program to go forward initially, this has become an industry. Its a money-maker for scholarship funding organizations, Meyer said.

Taxes? Who wants to think about taxes around Labor Day?But if you count on your tax refund and youre one of the millions getting tax credits to help pay health insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act, its not too early.Heres why: If your income for 2014 is going to be higher than you estimated when you applied for health insurance, then complex connections between the health law and taxes can reduce or even eliminate your tax refund next year.Maybe youre collecting more commissions in an improving economy. Or your spouse got a better job. It could trigger an unwelcome surprise.The danger is that as your income grows, you dont qualify for as much of a tax credit. Any difference will come out of your tax refund, unless you have promptly reported the changes. Nearly 7 million households have gotten health insurance tax credits, and major tax preparation companies say most of those consumers appear to be unaware of the risk.More than a third of tax credit recipients will owe some money back, and [that] can lead to some pretty hefty repayment liabilities, said George Brandes, vice president for health care programs at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service.The average tax credit for subsidized coverage on the new health insurance exchanges is $264 a month, or $3,168 for a full 12 months. The average tax refund is about $2,690.Having to pay back even as little as 10 percent of your tax credit can reduce your refund by several hundred dollars.Tax giant H&R Block says consumers whose incomes grew as the year went on should act now and contact www.HealthCare.gov or their state insurance exchange to update their accounts.They will pay higher health insurance premiums for the rest of this year, but they can avoid financial pain come spring. As time goes on, the ability to make adjustments diminishes, warned Mark Ciaramitaro, H&R Blocks vice president of health care services. Clients count on that refund as their biggest financial transaction of the year. When that refund goes down, it really has reverberations.The Obama administration says its constantly urging newly insured consumers to report changes that could affect their coverage. But those messages dont drive home the point about tax refunds.What probably isnt clear is that there may be consequences at tax time, said Ciaramitaro.Aaron Albright, a spoke sman for the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, said the administration plans to ramp up its efforts.Concern about the complex connection between the health care law and taxes has increased recently, after the Internal Revenue Service released drafts of new forms to administer health insurance tax credits next filing season. The forms set up a final accounting that ensures each household is getting the correct tax credit that the law provides. Various factors are involved, including income, family size, where you live and the premiums for a benchmark plan in your community. Even experts find the forms highly complicated, requiring month-by-month computations for some taxpayers. Taxpayers accustomed to filing a simplified 1040EZ will not be able to do so if they received health insurance tax credits this year. *Wednesday, September 3, 2014 5A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com LAST DAY TO REGISTER TO VOTEe last day to register to vote for the upcoming General Election is Monday, October 6, 2014.

Hundreds of thousands of Cubans and Cuban-Ameri cans fly to and from the island each year thanks to the easing of travel restrictions by the U.S. and Cuban governments over the past five years.Their Cuba-bound checked baggage has become a continuous airlift that moves nearly $2 billion of products ranging from razor blades to rice cookers. The baggage carousels at Cubas airports often look like theyre disgorging the contents of an entire Wal-Mart or Target store. Many families bring special trailers to carry the bags of their returning family, which often weigh many hundreds of pounds and include items such as bicycles and flat-screen TVs.But the Cuban government on Monday enacted new rules meant to take a big bite of that traffic, sharply limiting the amount of goods people can bring into Cuba in their luggage, and ship by boat from abroad. The Cuban government says the restrictions are meant to curb abuses that have turned air travel in particular into a way for professional mules to illegally import supplies for both black-market businesses and legal private enterprises that are supposed to buy supplies from the state.Among ordinary Cubans, reactions have ranged from worry to outrage that their primary, and for many only, source of high-quality consumer goods may be throttled.People are really unhappy, said Maite Delgado, a 75-year-old retired state worker. All the clothes and shoes that I have come from my granddaughters in Spain or my siblings in the U.S.Severe limitsThe rules that went into effect Monday run 41 pages and give a sense of the quantity and diversity of the commercial goods arriving in checked bags. Travelers will now be allowed to bring in 22 pounds of detergent instead of 44; one set of hand tools instead of two; and 24 bras instead of 48. Four car tires are still permitted, as are two pieces of baby furniture and two flat-screen televisions. Cuban customs also bars passengers from bringing in items worth more than $1,000. Rather than examining receipts, customs agents are given a long list assigning pre-set values to certain goods ($250 for a videogame console, for example.) Those prices rise sharply under the new rules, making it far easier to reach that $1,000 limit.The new rules similarly increase the duties paid on goods shipped from abroad, another major source of foreign merchandise for the island.Authorities have taken to the airwaves and pages of state media in recent days to assure Cubans that the vast majority of travelers wont be affected. The change is intended to keep certain people from using current rules on non-commercial imports to bring into the country high volumes of goods that are destined for commercial sale and profit, Idalmis Rosales Milanes, deputy chief of Cuban customs, told government newspaper Granma in Friday editions.The government has justified the new rules with examples of prolific mules including one passenger it said brought in 41 computer monitors and 66 flat-screen TVs in a year.Between $1.7 billion and $1.9 billion worth of goods were flown to Cuba in travelers baggage last year, with the average flyer bringing in goods worth $3,551, according to a 2013 survey of 1,154 Cuban and CubanAmerican travelers conducted by the Havana Consulting Group, a Florida-based private consultancy that studies the Cuban economy. Its sustenance, support that greatly aids in the survival of the Cuban family, Consulting Group President Emilio Morales said. Along with cash remittances, its the most significant source of earnings for the Cuban population, not the salaries the government pays.The Miami impactWhile his study did not look at the final destination of travelers goods, Morales said he estimated based on his knowledge of the phenomenon that about 60 percent went to families and 40 percent to black-market retailers.With foreign reserves dropping sharply over the last two years as Cuba tries to pay off sovereign debt and make itself a more attractive destination for foreign investment, Morales said, the government is desperate to reduce the flow of goods and push Cubans relatives abroad to send help in the form of cash remittances, which are subjected to hefty government fees. Limiting informal imports also would presumably help boost business in state-controlled stores.The rule change already has had an effect in Miami, where many stores are dedicated to selling goods to island-bound Cubans and Cuban-Americans. I havent sold almost anything this morning, said Diana Calzadilla, 28, a cashier at Cadalzo Fashion, a store in Miamis Little Havana neighborhood that sells discount clothing and accessories to travelers on their way to Cuba. People look around but they dont buy anything because theyre not sure how much theyre going to be able to bring. Several mules have commented that they are going to look into other ways to make money, she said. At least one customer, she said, appeared decided. It was their last trip, she said. They dont know if theyll go again.

It was an inauspicious start to the season for Marathon Highs football Dolphins Friday, falling to Boca Raton Christian 50-0. The Dolphins couldnt keep the Blazers from dominating the field and moving the ball, and turnovers and missed blocks kept Marathon from gaining yardage and scoring.A lot of it was the firstgame jitters. I wanted the team to win the game but I was more concerned with how we were going to come out as a team, coach Paul Davis said. The guys made basic mistakes in the first game.Boca Raton scored within six minutes of the first quarter and dominated from there. The Blazers, 6-3 last year, were far more seasoned than the young Dolphins, who were coming off a 2-8 season. Davis attributed some of the mistakes to players being assigned to positions theyre still learning.We had some guys in positions that didnt know what they were doing, Davis said. We gotta go back to the basics with blocking assignments. If the guys dont know what theyre doing, they need to ask.Stats were not available. Marathon will travel to Miami Country Day Friday for a 7 p.m. game. Country Day lost its opener Aug. 27, 24-12, against Scheck Hillel Community School. Were getting ready for the next opponent.

Chris Johnsons weekly fishing report, Fishing the Florida Keys, has taken a belated Labor Day holiday and will return next Wednesday.Canes open with thrilling winA thundering Coral Shores High offense staked the Hurricanes to a twotouchdown lead twice against Coral Springs Charter, then a ferocious Cane defense arose to preserve Fridays seasonopening 33-28 victory.The three-hour battle between two South Florida Conference contenders rang up nine touchdowns on the George M. Barley Jr. Stadium scoreboard, yet three Cane defensive stands against Coral Springs offense in the last 5:44 decided the winner. Unbelievable, said Cane head coach Ed Holly.Relying exclusively on a ground game that produced more than 380 yards in the game, the Hurricanes took a 19-7 halftime lead that grew to 26-7 on George Jacobsens 48-yard run to finish the first drive of the third quarter. For the game, Coral Shores relied on battering runs from George Jacobsen (17 carries, 141 yards), Henry Jacobsen (12 for 132) and Eddie Dunn (18 for 107). Among linemen paving the way with exceptional blocking performance were stalwarts Andy Bautista, David Williams, Chris OBerry and Sam Kraus.Then the pass-minded Panthers of Coral Springs roared back, needing just 25 seconds of game time to score 14 points on two short drives stemming from Cane mistakes.A Hurricane fumble at their own 30 recovered by Coral Springs led to a fouryard Panther touchdown pass with 1:49 left in the third quarter. Coral Springs then recovered an onside kick and covered 50 yards in two plays, a 35-yard pass and a 15-yard run, to score at the 1:24 mark. Despite nearly three quarters of Cane dominance, the fourth quarter opened with a 26-21 score and the Panthers scratching their way back. The Canes drove to the Coral Springs 5-yard line, eating away at the clock, before another lost fumble prevented a score. Two plays later, defensive back Paul Pauchey ran down his second interception of the game at the Panther 40. Coral Shores moved the distance in four plays. Henry Jacobsen ran for 14 yards, and then sprinted around the left side for an 18-yard touchdown with 6:55 left. After a short kickoff, the Panthers started at the 50 and answered with an 8-yard touchdown pass at 5:44, setting the score at 33-28. The Panthers delivered a second successful onside kick, getting the ball back at midfield. A stop by defensive end Logan Rowe for no gain rallied the weary Coral Shores defense. Logan had a great game on both sides of the ball, Holly said.Steady linebacker Ariel Correa tackled a receiver for no gain, and two incompletions finished the Springs drive.But the Panthers soon got the ball back after a punt and a 36-yard pass moved them to the Cane 42-yard line. After a 5-yard run, Pauchey defensed one pass and a fourth-down throw was swatted down at the line. A low snap on a Hurricane punt had kicker Pauchey scrambling. He gained four yards to the Cane 45 but the Panthers took over. After Springs reached the Coral Shores 40, the Hurricane defense forced three straight incompletions, including a key defense by Dunn, to save the game. We opened the season with a special win over a good team, Holly said. But weve got a lot to work on. Other Hurricane highlights: After a fumbled Canes pitch inside their own 10, Pauchey made a perfect break on a short Panther pass to make an interception in the Coral Shores end zone, a pick that later proved critical.Coral Shores opened the game with a 13-play, 93yard drive with Dunn barging over from the 1. He carried seven times for 38 yards on the march.Coral Shores went up 19-7 after an 80-yard drive, finished by George Jacobsens 4-yard run.Defensive lineman David Williams had a sack for a 14-yard Panther loss. Linebacker Brian Gonzalez, Rowe and Dunn also had tackles for losses.

Keys Gate no matchEqualing its victory total of last season, when it went 1-9, the Key West High School football team opened the season Friday night by rolling over Keys Gate of Homestead, 43-3, at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Six players scored touchdowns for the Conchs against a school that, though its been playing football for only three seasons, boasted a quarterback, Aaron Ortiz, who hopes to play at the University of Alabama It took a while for the scoring barrage to begin because Keys Gate, after recovering a fumble on Key Wests first possession, spent considerable time deep inside Conch territory. After having an Ortiz TD pass nullified by a holding penalty, the Knights settled for a 35-yard field goal by Raymond Gage that gave them a 3-0 lead. That lead was quickly erased when Jeffery Anilus ran 67 yards for a touchdown with 6:22 left in the first quarter. Sam Gravelines extra-point kick made it 7-3. On Keys Gates next possession, the Conchs were awarded a safety when a bad snap went through the end zone. After taking the ensuing kickoff, which came from the Keys Gate 20 yard line, the Conchs needed only four plays to score again, this time on a 24-yard run by Dorian Cannon that made it 16-3. Anilus and Cannon have become a one-two punch for the Conchs in the absence of injured Mehki Sargent, last years leading rusher. The Conchs took a 23-3 lead into halftime when, after a long drive, quarterback Andrew Freeman hit Daniel Daley-Dixon with a five-yard scoring pass.Key West scored three second-half TDs, one on a 35yard pass from Freeman to Josh Shadduck, one on an interception and 44-yard return by sophomore Christian Luna and the third on a four-yard run by Freeman that made it 43-3. Despite the lopsided score a running clock was used most of the fourth quarter Freeman was also in the game as a defensive back.There were no punts in the game, which wasnt that much of a surprise. Key West coach Johnny Hughes detests punting so much that he even went for a first down on a fourth-and-three from the Conchs 16 in the second quarter. Freeman was sacked back at the 10, but Keys Gate, down then by only 13 points, meekly went four and out.The Conchs will host University High of Fort Lauderdale at 7 Friday night.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALLPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Dorian Cannon bursts through a hole on his way to a 24-yard touchdown run Friday night against Keys Gate.

Heres the buzz on beesWeve been hearing a lot about honeybees dying en masse, about Colony Collapse Disorder, even predictions that the honeybee is headed for extinction. There is no doubt that beekeepers as well as farmers who require bees to pollinate their crops are losing lots of bees entire hives in fact. Some beekeepers have reported that 30 to 90 percent of their bees have died. It was while I was writing about how we can help save the bees by cultivating certain plants that I encountered a healthy, thriving colony of bees inside my house. When I realized they had built a hive right outside my bedroom, my first thought was not whether I should plant more firebush to provide them with more food. I live in a wood-frame house, a Hurricane Andrew survivor, barely. There are benefits to a wood house: Its easier to repair than concrete block for instance, but it also needs more repairs than concrete, particularly in the form of rotten wood. So one shady corner of the house had a good amount of decayed wood trim, allowing a small area of access to inside the wall.Foraging bees have always visited my yard; they seem to love my coconut palms flowers as well as the firebush blooms. But this past spring my wife Ariel started noticing a whole lot of bees coming and going past our bedroom door, like golden streaks backlit by the sun. Where could they be going? Toward sunset, when the bees begin to settle in, I found out. I spotted them around the wood trim at the bottom of the wall outside our bedroom, the same corner with decayed trim. They had found an entrance, and were moving in, even removing the insulation bit by bit.Each night we could lie in bed and hear them. I am not a beekeeper, so I am learning as I go along. But I did know I didnt want to kill the bees. Whats the point of pouring poison on everything? It almost never works out for the better. I was tempted by the promise of a quick fix, I must admit. But if you kill a hive, it still needs to be removed quickly or it will attract roaches, ants and decay in general. Without the living bees to maintain things, honey will drip everywhere. Since the decayed outer wall had to be replaced anyway, why not take the opportunity to remove the hive at the same time? I looked for help and contacted an animal-saving exterminator, someone who removes pesky creatures without harming them. He told me the hive could be removed alive.Location, locationIts not always possible to remove without killing. If the hive were in a location where access was difficult or the bees were a direct danger to people, it might require extermination. But this hive was in easy reach.Finally, eviction day came.Armored in beekeeping suits, we approached the hive entrance. I could estimate the location based on hearing the bee activity from inside the house. The wall also felt warmer in that area. I pried the trim off first. Not much reaction from the bees. Then I used a power saw to cut into the wall, making certain I did not go deep enough to penetrate the interior drywall. That would be really bad. The vibrations certainly got the bees attention. Now they landed on us, though its not noticeable much with the protective face and headgear on. By the time I finally pulled back the board to expose the actual hive, they were quite agitated. The hive is truly a marvel. The wax combs were arranged parallel to each other, but at an angle to the framing, I assume to maximize ventilation and use of space. We then gently scraped each honeycombs point of attachment to release it from the horizontal wood stud above, and carefully placed it onto a board. These were all placed in the shade of a tree across the yard. I hadnt found anyone to adopt the hive, so our hope was that they would disperse into a swarm and find a new location to create a hive. I sealed up the wall temporarily with roofing tarpaper until the angry bees dispersed, which they did in about three days.Stubborn bugsStraggler bees who were out foraging may return to find their hive gone, but nevertheless may try to reenter the area, so be aware of this if you remove a beehive. Evicted bees are known to try and re-establish a hive in the same location; other swarms (a swarm is a homeless cluster of bees) may also try this, as they can smell the remaining wax and honey. Therefore, I scraped the area clean and wiped it down with a bleach solution before painting it with mildew-resistant paint.Now Im ready to replace the boards and wood with new material. Ah, home ownership.Kenneth Setzer is with Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.Have a hive? Get rid of it, keep them aliveBy KENNETH SETZERTHE WILD LIFE Living Photo by KENNETH SETZERThis is the entire hive exposed: The wax combs were arranged parallel to each other, but at an angle to the framing.
