James M. Hightower, 67, was killed when the 2004 Ford he was driving north left the road about 7:05 a.m. at Mile Marker 99 and struck a road sign, bushes and a building, according to a Florida Highway Patrol press release. It was unknown why he went off the road. Page 3A City staff has proposed changes to Key WestвЂ™s three parking permit programs, including restricting parking in Old Town to those who live there and buy a $50 annual window decal. That idea, which has been fleshed out and then flushed out by city leaders before, would still enable anyone with a Monroe Countystamped license plate to park in the white-painted spots not marked вЂњResidential.вЂќ Those вЂњResidentialвЂќ markings, however, would reserve spots for Historic District residents only, city staff said. Details on the changes will be presented at a special City Commission workshop on citywide parking rules, set for 6 p.m. tonight at Old City Hall, 510 Greene St. вЂњRemember this is a workshop and nothing will be voted on,вЂќ John Wilkins, the cityвЂ™s parking manager, wrote in an email. вЂњThe idea is to bring ideas to the table that can be discussed with all the commissioners together. I expect to discuss all sorts of ideas in an informal manner.вЂќ The $50 Old Town residential parking fee is needed to pay for the вЂњdurable thermoplasticвЂќ stencils to re-mark the 1,008 existing spaces. вЂњThe city needs to commit the resources to re-marking these spaces with a more permanent material,вЂќ according to a memo attached to WednesdayвЂ™s agenda. вЂњThe experiment along Eaton Street has not been a success.вЂќ The 751 unmarked spots in Old Town would remain free and available to any drivers See PARKING, Page 5A Developers agree to scale back strip mall KEY WEST Boys, 13, sent to juvenile program Airsoft gun offense wonвЂ™t be on record BY ADAM LINHARDT MIKE HENTZ/The Citizen Sex abuse survivor launches walk in KW Citizen Staff If that old adage that вЂњthe longest journey begins with a single stepвЂќ is true, than sexual abuse survivor Lauren Book is well on the way to completing her trip.

The developers are willing to reduce the shopping center from roughly 600,000 square feet to 350,000 square feet, according to the developerвЂ™s plan- ner Owen Trepanier. County planning staff requested that the project not exceed 300,000 square feet. The developers maintain they need to keep the size of the individual buildings to 175,000 square feet, but would limit the individual size of a store to 140,000 square feet. The developers want to be able have one large anchor store abutted by two smaller stores, Trepanier said. County planning staff argue the individual buildings should be limited to 125,000 square feet. Despite not agreeing with all the countyвЂ™s requests, county planner Joe Haberman called the proposal вЂњa step in the right direction.вЂќ вЂњThey have provided us with written architectural guidelines that deal with mass,вЂќ Haberman said. вЂњWe just donвЂ™t want to see one big box.вЂќ Rockland Key landowners William See BOX STORE, Page 3A UPPER KEYS Citizen Staff ItвЂ™s neither bird nor plane and no, itвЂ™s not a drug submarine, either.

A bickering couple from New York state drew police attention Sunday night after a day of drinking and a tour of East Martello Tower, where Robert the Doll resides. The girlfriend, 37, of Rochester, N.Y., was jailed on a misdemeanor count of battery. Robert, a doll cursed with the вЂњblack magic of Voodoo,вЂќ according to www.robertthedoll.org, allegedly haunts the Martello dressed in a crisp white sailor outfit and clutching his Leo Lion stuffed animal. вЂњStrange things would happen when Robert was around,вЂќ the site says, urging folks to вЂњBlame it on Robert!вЂќ when bizarre incidents crop up. The duo apparently took it to heart. The boyfriend, 49, of Stafford, N.Y., reportedly called police about 9:30 p.m. saying вЂњIt will be revealing to follow the sad story of the alleged 14-yearold rapist to see if the course of justice is the same for a member of a privileged and prominent family as it would be for just another kid from Bahama Village.вЂќ вЂњThank you, Key West police, for the amazing amount of patience and professionalism youвЂ™re displaying in the 200 block of Duval.вЂќ вЂњSomebody trademarked the Mile Zero sign?

Prior to that, he had tried to evict her from their South Roosevelt Boulevard hotel room, printing out a return plane ticket for her in the lobby. Police photographed the manвЂ™s face, noting his upper lip was cut and swollen. The couple parted ways after the girlfriend told officers there was вЂњa tussle,вЂќ where вЂњhands were thrown.вЂќ Reports said their speech was slurred. Afterward, she allegedly texted the boyfriend: вЂњIвЂ™m sorry for your lip. I didnвЂ™t know my capability... All I have to say is, вЂ�Robert did it!вЂ™вЂќ She was booked into county jail.

Islamorada man killed in 1 of 2 U.S. 1 crashes An Islamorada man was killed in a one-vehicle crash early Tuesday in Key Largo that came on the heels of a rollover at the same spot on U.S. 1 the night before. James M. Hightower, 67, was killed when the 2004 Ford he was driving north left the road about 7:05 a.m. at Mile Marker 99 and struck a road sign, bushes and a building, according to a Florida Highway Patrol press release. It was unknown why he went off the road. Hightower was taken to Mariners Hospital, where he died. He was wearing a seat belt and alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash. Troopers were investigating whether Hightower had a medical condition, said Lt. Kathy McKinney. The crash partially closed northbound lanes for about an hour.

But Henson and Kemp filed an application with the county and they are entitled to вЂњdue process,вЂќ he said. However, Trepanier is in discussions with the other Rockland Key land owners in order to come up with rules that would ultimately benefit all, he said. вЂњWe think collaborative development for Rockland Key is in everybodyвЂ™s best interest,вЂќ Trepanier said.

The practice drone, known as the BQM-167A or subscale aerial target in military parlance, was shot down with an air-to-air missile by pilots on Jan. 31, but bad weather slowed down recovery efforts, so the drone was floating in the Gulf currents before it turned up in Blackwater Sound waters Sunday morning, Wilkins said. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) crews received a call over the radio, found the drone and alerted the Air Force, said FWC Lt. David Dipre. The drone does not carry explosive weapons, but it does contain jet fuel and sometimes the Air Force outfits them with anti-missile equipment such as chaff and flare dispensers, according to Air Force fact sheets available online. The drones are capable of speeds just below Mach 1 and can fly at 50,000 feet. The 82 Aerial Targets Squadron uses their own boats to retrieve the drones, as they are one of only two Air Force squadrons that have boats, Wilkins said. вЂњItвЂ™s in our best interest to hurry up and get these out of the water, as we reuse them and they can be a hazard to mariners out there,вЂќ Wilkins said. The Navy does not use the BQM-167A on the stateвЂ™s east coast, but do as part of their west coast operations, Wilkins said.

The landowners are requesting a вЂњCommercial Retail Center Overlay DistrictвЂќ for 33 acres on Rockland Key, which is currently home to an adult video store, tow yard and gravel pits. Rockland KeyвЂ™s current zoning is industrial, with strict limits on how much commercial retail activity can occur there. The overlay district would permit more commercial businesses. To make the changes more palatable for the community, the developers agreed to build bike and pedestrian paths connecting to the Overseas Heritage Trail and a 200-seat meeting center, which they would lease to the county for a $1 a year.

CLARIN/PUBLISHER TOM TUELL/EDITOR RALPH MORROW/SPORTS EDITOR THE KEY WEST CITIZEN в—† WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 NANCY SCHMOHL BECKWITH ROBERT CINTRON JR. KEN DOMANSKI SHIRLEY FREEMAN TODD GERMAN OPINION On ethics, House must get the details right he devil is always in the details. Two weeks after the Florida Senate earned accolades for its unanimous vote on ethics reform, the billвЂ™s fine print is getting the scrutiny it deserves thanks to a former ethics commission executive director. Now itвЂ™s up to the Florida House to improve the ethics reform package by tightening up several Senate provisions that could make it harder instead of easier for the public to keep tabs on those conducting the business of government. Meaningful ethics reform requires getting all the details right, not just some of them. The House Ethics and Elections Committee starts deliberations today on the House legislation вЂ” just a day after Philip Claypool, the former executive director of the state ethics commission, critiqued the Senate legislation at the request of Integrity Florida. Among the areas ripe for improvement in the House: Financial disclosure requirements: Lawmakers want to make it easier for officials to correct the paperwork they must file annually without consequence. But the danger is in undermining the importance of financial disclosure for the convenience of politicians, particularly when this provision could mean a corrected form isnвЂ™t submitted until after an election. The citizensвЂ™ right to know the financial interests of those seeking or holding office is not a nuisance requirement, and the ethics commission already distinguishes between honest mistakes and more nefarious kinds. Conflicts of interest: Legislators can now vote on any matter, but they have to T Editorial disclose afterward if they or a close associate, including a family member, would get a special private gain or loss. Under the Senate and House bills, lawmakers could not vote on issues where they had a special interest вЂ” but could vote if their close associate did. In those cases, the legislator would still disclose a conflict after voting. And the Senate bill contains suspect language that appears to narrow the definition of special gain or loss. The goal should be to improve public disclosure, not give lawmakers more cover when they vote for their self-interest, big and small. Ethics complaints: Both chambers would make it harder for citizens to file complaints in the run-up to an election. And the Senate would impose new standards when a complaint must be dismissed by the commission. This would make matters worse, and Florida doesnвЂ™t have a problem with over-prosecution on ethics violations. Blind trusts: For the first time, both chambers appear poised to embrace the ethics commissionвЂ™s idea to allow politicians to avoid conflict of interest laws by establishing blind trusts for their assets. But the House version comes much closer to getting it right by requiring that officials document what assets are placed in a trust initially and requiring the trust agreement be filed with the ethics commission. The SenateвЂ™s bill does neither of those necessary things and risks leaving citizens more in the dark about a politiciansвЂ™ interests than they are now. вЂ” The Tampa Bay Times GOVERNMENT WEBSITES: Monroe County http://www.monroecounty-fl.gov City of Key West http://www.keywestcity.com City of Marathon http://www.ci.marathon.fl.us Village of Islamorada http://www.islamorada.fl.us City of Key Colony Beach http://www.keycolonybeach.net Monroe County SheriffвЂ™s Office http://www.keysso.net Monroe County School District http://www.keysschools.com Monroe County Clerk http://www.clerk-of-the-court.com Monroe County Property Appraiser http://www.mcpafl.org Monroe County Tax Collector http://www.monroetaxcollector. com/index.html Monroe Co. Supervisor of Elections http://www.keys-elections.org Letters to the editor Columnist could use a dose of own advice Serendipity indeed, Mr. Belland. I implore you to heed the very poignant advice you so eloquently shared with readers in your March 17 column titled вЂњSerendipity вЂ¦ messages we shouldnвЂ™t ignore.вЂќ It is truly serendipitous that the publication of your column comes during a time when Key West is facing a monumental decision regarding the islandвЂ™s channel-widening. Where is the line drawn between procuring profits and protecting future resources? I think it is finally time to consider drawing that line in our own backyard rather than continuing to ask others to do so in theirs. As you mention in your article, now is the time to вЂњsummon the gumptionвЂќ to spare the living reefs off the Keys; spare them from a horrendous raping of their fragile ecosystem. You speak of how вЂњour right to overindulge вЂ¦ more often than not, infringes on the rights of others when their ill effects cause society to pay the bills.вЂќ How can you separate this from the islandвЂ™s fragile ecosystem, and the devastating effect the channel-widening [would] have on it? I contend that you cannot. We may not have icecaps here in the Keys, but instead we have coral, seagrass, sponges, and other vital filtering mechanisms, habitat and food sources that would be destroyed; it does not take a scientist or costly scientific study to show us this. LetвЂ™s learn from our past mistakes, take off our blinders and have the gumption to finally say enough is enough. You and those surrounding you certainly have the power and political influence to get this important message across. Please show us that what you speak of truly does matter and that you believe it, rather than have it just be the subject of an entertaining commentary. With this said, I must also mention an article published just last week titled вЂњTwo Carnival ships skip Southernmost City.вЂќ I believe this is a prime example of serendipity, which you define as вЂњthose strange situations that just happen out of the blue but seem to make some kind of sense.вЂќ Clearly, it is not always the case that вЂњif you build it, they will come.вЂќ Jayne Kilpatrick Cudjoe Key Board is handicapped by poor math skills The Key West Bight Management Board dropped parking rates by 20 percent for six months, and then they were surprised revenues dropped 20-plus percent. What were they thinking, or smoking? At $2.50 per hour, $400,000 in annual revenues suggests 160,000 parking hours. At $2 per hour, one needs 200,000 parking hours or 25 percent more hours just to break even. So for the plan to have worked, they would have needed an occupancy increase well above 25 percent. So did the board really think that just by dropping rates they would be flooded by new customers? Why did it take them six months to figure this out? Especially when the test period was during a time when Key West has been experiencing stronger than average tourist revenues. At $2 per hour, there is no incentive for anyone to go out of their way to park there when more convenient meters are the same price. Can you imagine a hotel dropping its room rates by 20 percent to match their neighbor and somehow expect their occupancy to soar by more than 25 percent? Sounds like a plan based on wishful thinking versus basic math and common sense. Another example of how governments and their agencies canвЂ™t seem to figure out how to balance budgets. Maybe we need some business sense on the board. Bill Klipp Key West Weapons charges are an overreaction to toy It was a just a toy for goodnessвЂ™ sake. True, [the three middle-school students charged with felony weapons charges] should have declared [the realistic-looking toy pistol] when they first got to school. However, the worst that could happen would be someone getting scared вЂ” not hurt! Now three innocent lives are going to be ruined just because of a toy. The toy could not possibly hurt anyone, period. This is utterly ridiculous and an outrage. Who comes up with this stupid, idiotic stuff? If a point has to be made вЂ” which I question вЂ” suspend them for a week or so. I will say the punishment should be worse if they threatened someone and seriously pretended it was real and someone might really get shot. In actuality, if there were no threats, the toy should have just been confiscated.

PORTER Superintendent of schools reat schools and great communities simply go together. One of the essential elements of a successful school district is a vibrant and ongoing relationship with you, the citizens we serve. It is our responsibility to not only provide an outstanding education for our students, but to remain closely connected to the communities we serve and the people who make up those communities. Community engagement and effective communication are an important aspect of any great school system, but even more so during the process of developing a strategic plan. Next month the Monroe County School District will begin the process of developing our five-year strategic plan. This planning process will be referred to as вЂњCharting the Course вЂ” Excellence in G the Monroe County Schools.вЂќ This will be a very involved and intensive process and will include many of you as both community members and employees. Let me briefly outline the overall stages of this process. Information and input collected from these community engagement sessions will be summarized and presented to the Strategic Planning Team during our sessions in April. By the way, I am looking for 25 community members from across Monroe County to be a part of this important team effort. This will be a selected group of individuals, 25 community members and 25 employees, to reflect the geographic and other rich diversities of the Monroe County schools. If you are interested in serving on the Strategic Planning Team you may complete an interest application online at http:// www.keysschools.com/plan or at any of the community engagement sessions. Community engagement During the month of March, I will be conducting six to seven community engagement sessions throughout Monroe County. Each of these sessions will be hosted by a community member, held in an appropriate school or community facility, and will be approximately 90 minutes in length. I will briefly outline some of the current strengths and challenges of the Monroe County schools, but will spend the majority of the time listening to you, our community members, on what you want to see in your Monroe County schools. Dates, times Plan development and locations can be found at The Strategic Planning http://www.keysschools.com. Team will meet for a total of 12 hours during sessions on Tuesday, April 16, and Saturday, April 20. During this time they will develop four to six large strategic objectives for the Monroe County schools over the next five-year period. This work will then be passed along to Action Teams, those responsible for identifying the specific steps, actions, results and measurable outcomes to be established in the first 12-18 months of the strategic plan. All of which must be completed before the plan comes back before the School Board for approval in June. Lots of work to be done вЂ” I need your help! Deployment and resources Obviously a plan by itself is of no real value. The value comes in the deployment and actions with expected out- comes that are implemented in accordance with the action plans and aligned with the strategic plan. The 2013-14 school year will be year one of implementation of our strategic plan. It will be a year of transition as we seek to align our efforts and resources with the identified priorities of our strategic plan. While there are sure to be some new initiatives and refinement of ongoing efforts, there will also be the challenge of eliminating ineffective practices and efforts as well. In the second half of the 2013-14 school year we will have our first opportunity to truly use the strategic plan to formulate our budget and planning for the 2014-15 school year. Resourcing a strategic plan is a critical stage in the process. We will of course begin with the analysis and allocation of existing resources to align with the identified actions of the strategic plan, but it is also likely and foreseeable that we may need additional resources from our communities to support the efforts they have identified. While it is still too early to say for sure, I am quite confident that the Monroe County School District, with proper approval and authority of the School Board, may need to ask our communities to provide some additional resources to fully meet the priorities of our strategic plan. By the time this might happen, we would hope to have restored the trust and confidence of our communities so that we can once again proclaim вЂ” great schools and great communities simply go together. This is your call to action, please join me in вЂњCharting the Course to Excellence in the Monroe County SchoolsвЂќ in whatever way you can. Mark T. Porter is superintendent of the Monroe County School District. 5A THE KEY WEST CITIZEN в—† WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 FROM PAGE 1 down to $25 a month, but limiting the parking areas to the former City Hall lot, 525 Angela St., which has 84 spots, and the Park-n-Ride Shuttle lot, which offers 251 spots. вЂњThis could be combined with more comprehensive changes such as reviving the вЂ�Park-n-RideвЂ™ Shuttle and increase free bike and scooter parking,вЂќ Wilkins wrote Monday in a memo to City Manager Bob Vitas. Right now, the city has 163 active permits for the employee program that started in the late 1980s as a way for businesses to help their workers afford the cost of parking, according to a city memo. About 13 percent of the cityвЂ™s 1,260 streetside metered parking spots is dedicated to the employee assistance program, which has no official hours, so employees may use it anytime. In Key West, most metered parking spots have an average turnover rate of two hours. But the employee assistance parkers take up a space for an average eight hours a day, city staff said. Residents must complete an application, show proof of employment along with a notarized letter from an employer and allow city staff to photograph the car that will wear the window sticker. [email protected] Parking Continued from Page 1A on a first-come, first-served basis. Another proposal is to kill the cityвЂ™s Residential Metered Parking Permit program, which offers вЂњhang-tagsвЂќ for the rearview mirrors of the cars of residents without driveways who live on streets governed by city meters. Key West has 48 active permits, at $106 apiece for one year. The program takes up metered spaces for days, city staff said, and it competes вЂњunfairlyвЂќ with local businesses who charge about $100 per month for a spot downtown. ItвЂ™s too early to calculate the cost to the city, since the commission hasnвЂ™t given any direction to staff, Wilkins said. вЂњSome of the changes I will propose will have a positive impact by increasing meter revenues; other changes will result in a loss of fees,вЂќ Wilkins wrote. вЂњStreet markings will be a significant cost.вЂќ Also on the agenda is the вЂњEmployee Assistance Parking PermitвЂќ program, which right now offers downtown parking for workers at a rate of $400 for four months. A new proposal recommends knocking the rate City Continued from Page 1A city staff has talked about since 2006, after the Palm Avenue bus headquarters were damaged by Hurricane WilmaвЂ™s storm surge in 2005. The transit center, planned for 3.9 acres on the site of the former Solid Waste to Energy facility, would include administrative offices, fuel pumps and tanks and stations for bus washing and fleet maintenance. вЂњThis need has been known since 2006,вЂќ wrote city engineer Birchard Ohlinger in a memo to city staff, calling the present station вЂњundersized and in poor condition.вЂќ City Commissioner Teri Johnston stood as the lone dissenter, questioning whether the $8.5 million bid would cover all costs. After the meeting, Johnston said Key West doesnвЂ™t need a new bus center with six bays, no matter if state transportation grants cover the building costs. While 100 percent of the construction is likely to be paid for with state money, she said, the demolition and the subsequent yearly maintenance will fall to the city. вЂњWeвЂ™re taking on another facility to maintain,вЂќ Johnston said, as Old City Hall emptied after the 6 p.m. meeting. The rest of the dais, Mayor Craig Cates and City Commissioners Clayton Lopez, Billy Wardlow, Jimmy Weekley and Tony Yaniz, voted in favor of the contract. Commissioner Mark Rossi was absent. As for the Palm Avenue transit station, Johnston said, вЂњWe own it.вЂќ D.N. Higgins is a Key West firm that bid on the project with a partnering design firm, CDM Smith, of Ann Arbor, Mich. state Legislature is reviewing: One to ban textmessaging while driving, making it a noncriminal traffic violation punishable by fines between $30 and $60. Florida law forbids cities and counties from passing their own laws related to texting while driving. Emergency workers and police officers on duty would still be able to text or email while behind the wheel. Drivers stopped in traffic jams or at stoplights could also text, the bill states. The commission also gave its support to a second bill that would prohibit certain retail stores from providing plastic disposable bags at checkouts. Instead, businesses across Florida would have to stock up on paper bags, charging customers 10 cents apiece. Half of the money would go to local schools, while the rest would help the companies pay for the new program, the bill states. Beaches not trashed City Commissioner Tony Yaniz chastised The CitizenвЂ™s coverage of spring breakвЂ™s toll on Key West beaches, calling a front-page photograph of trash-strewn sand an unfair portrayal of what college kids left behind. Photographs posted on Facebook were also misleading and insulting to city maintenance workers and police officers, he said. вЂњThis crew this year was a heck of a lot milder than any other year,вЂќ Yaniz said. вЂњLetвЂ™s not feed the dragon that we have dirty, filthy beaches. Folks, this is your city. You have to stand up and tell people this is a wonderful place to come to and we know how to take care of our guests.вЂќ Yaniz said that arresting suspected litterbugs is a terrible idea. вЂњHaving Tasers and paddywagons is not going to solve the problem,вЂќ he said, again Down with plastic, texting praising the Police Department for its spring Also Tuesday night, the City Commission break patrols. [email protected] voted 6-0 to support two pending bills the Gov. Scott, House leader clash over Florida budget BY GARY FINEOUT The Associated Press TALLAHASSEE вЂ” In an uncharacteristic moment, Florida Gov. Rick Scott is already raising questions about some of the early budget proposals emerging from the Republican-controlled Legislature. Scott on Tuesday openly questioned whether or not House Republicans were going to recommend a $2,500 across the board pay raise for teachers. ItвЂ™s one of ScottвЂ™s priorities for the session. The Republican governor noted that the initial outline for the House budget calls for across the board pay raises for state workers but not teachers. Scott called the distinction вЂњinteresting.вЂќ вЂњState workers deserve to be paid fairly,вЂќ said Scott, who recommended a one-time bonus for state employees in his proposed $74.2 billion budget. вЂњBut I find it interesting that the speaker is against the pay raise for classroom teachers but is OK with an across the board pay raise for state workers.вЂќ Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, responded to the governor initially on Twitter, suggesting that the governorвЂ™s staff had misread the initial House proposals. He ended his message on Twitter with (hash)truth. He pointed out later that the House had pledged to set aside more than $1 billion in extra money for public schools. 305.29 36194 9 5.0111 daily Dinner вЂў 5-10pm ith Libby York w pm -2 am 11 вЂў Sunday Brunch IA LOC A LS SPEC L вЂў 5-6:30pm 382111 s by the glass* menu and wine 30% off regular with any ot her discounts Not available r discretion *expires at ou ces Streets ard & Fran Corner of South /opentable w.cafesole.com ww В· 30 .02 94 30 5.2 i-Fi!

NEW YORK AUSTIN, TEXAS DOVER, DEL. Sheriff: Disappearance staged Fla. man charged in Facebook fraud Playboy lawsuit settled To law enforcement agencies, the disappearance of a Missouri woman and her young daughter for four days had all the markings of an abduction: a cryptic text message asking for help, a phone call that sounded like it was being read from a script, an ex-husband with a history of domestic violence. Instead, Rachel Koechner told investigators Monday night that she slipped away with Devon Sandner, the ex-husband whoвЂ™s the father of her 4-year-old daughter, last week as part of a plan she devised a day before they took off. Koechner, Sandner and their child were found Monday in a home in Linn County about 100 miles northeast of Kansas City after someone saw them getting gas in nearby Brookfield and called police. A Florida investment adviser was charged Tuesday in an $8 million securities fraud scheme that federal prosecutors say capitalized on enthusiasm for Facebook shares. Craig L. Berkman was arrested at his home in Odessa, Fla., and held after a court appearance in Tampa until a hearing Thursday. The 71-year-old businessman was charged with two counts each of securities fraud and wire fraud, accused of claiming to own Facebook shares before the company went public in May when he didnвЂ™t directly own shares. Prosecutors said he pocketed much of the $8 million he received from more than 50 investors. If convicted, he could face up to 80 years in prison. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said Berkman вЂњseized on the interest in a highly coveted investment opportunity to swindle investors out of millions.вЂќ A Delaware judge has approved the settlement of a class-action lawsuit over Playboy magazine founder Hugh HefnerвЂ™s successful bid to take the company private. In the settlement approved Tuesday, shareholders of Playboy Enterprises Inc. agreed to accept $5.25 million in cash in return for dropping the lawsuit. After attorney fees and expenses, theyвЂ™ll receive about $4 million, or 17 cents per share.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS NEW YORK вЂ” A man who initially recanted sex abuse allegations against the former puppeteer of the вЂњSesame StreetвЂќ character Elmo has sued him, alleging the entertainer lured him into drugfueled sex when he was 16. Stephens вЂњI was taken advantage of by someone a lot older, and manipulated,вЂќ Sheldon Stephens, whoвЂ™s now 24, told a Manhattan news conference on Tuesday. He said he had met puppeteer Kevin Clash at a networking event for models and actors, and was later brought by limousine from his home in Pennsylvania to a New York apartment. There, Stephens said, Clash smoked crystal meth while giving the teenager another recreational drug. In a federal lawsuit filed Monday in Pennsylvania, Stephens accused the 52Clash year-old Clash of sexual battery for childhood sexual abuse; travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct; and coercion and enticement to sexual activity. Stephens is asking for unspecified damages and coverage of his legal expenses. ClashвЂ™s attorney, Michael Berger, said in a statement Tuesday that his client denies any wrongdoing. He said Stephens already admitted he had had an adult consensual relationship with Clash. Three other men also are suing Clash, alleging underage sex.

NRC orders nuclear sites to upgrade vents The Associated Press ALLEN BREED/The Associated Press Marine Brig. Gen. Jim Lukeman addresses the media Tuesday outside the gates of Camp Lejeune, N.C. The Pentagon bans 60 mm mortar round after deaths BY SCOTT SONNER AND TED BRIDIS The Associated Press HAWTHORNE, Nev. вЂ” A mortar shell explosion killed seven Marines and injured a half-dozen more during mountain warfare training in NevadaвЂ™s high desert, prompting the Pentagon to immediately halt the use of the weapons until an investigation can determine their safety, officials said Tuesday. The explosion occurred Monday night at the Hawthorne Army Depot, a sprawling facility used by troops heading overseas, during an exercise involving the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force from Camp Lejeune, N.C. Several Marines from the unit were injured in the blast, authorities said. The mortar round exploded in its firing tube during the exercise, Brig. Gen. Jim Lukeman said at a news conference at Camp Lejeune. He said investigators were trying to determine the cause of the malfunction. The Pentagon expanded a temporary ban to prohibit the military from firing any 60 mm mortar rounds until the results of the investigation. The Marine Corps said Tuesday a вЂњblanket suspensionвЂќ of 60 mm mortars and associated firing tubes is in effect. The Pentagon earlier had suspended use of all highexplosive and illumination mortar rounds that were in the same manufacturing lots as ones fired in Nevada. It was not immediately clear whether more than a single round exploded, a Marine Corps official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the official wasnвЂ™t authorized to speak about an ongoing investigation. Eight men under the age of 30 were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno with injuries, such as penetrating trauma, fractures and vascular injuries. One of them died, four were in serious condition, two were in fair condition and another was discharged, said spokesman Mark Earnest. The identities of those killed wonвЂ™t be released until 24 hours after their families are notified. вЂњWe send our prayers and condolences to the families of Marines involved in this tragic incident,вЂќ said the forceвЂ™s commander, Maj. Gen. Raymond C. Fox. вЂњWe mourn their loss, and it is with heavy hearts we remember their courage and sacrifice.вЂќ The rescue was complicated by the remoteness of the site, which is favored because the harsh geography simulates conditions in Afghanistan. WASHINGTON вЂ” U.S. nuclear power plants must upgrade ventilation systems at 31 reactors with designs similar to those that melted down two years ago in Japan, under a Nuclear Regulatory Commission order that stops short of requiring filtered vents, as some safety advocates and NRCвЂ™s staff had urged. The filters are required in Japan and much of Europe, but U.S. utilities say they are unnecessary and expensive. The order issued Tuesday requires U.S. operators to upgrade vents to ensure they remain operable even during severe accidents, such as the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami that crippled JapanвЂ™s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The tsunami sent three of the plantвЂ™s reactors into meltdown in the worldвЂ™s worst nuclear crisis in a quarter-century. The commission said the order will improve safety and help prevent radioactive particles from escaping into the atmosphere after a Japan-style meltdown. The commission also directed its staff to study a rule requir- ing filters at two dozen nuclear sites with 31 boiling water reactors similar to the ones in Japan that melted down. The commission also will consider a performance-based approach that would use existing systems to achieve similar results to limit release of radioactive materials. The rule would not be finalized until 2017. NRC Chairman Allison Macfarlane said the commission reached its decision after months of review, as the fivemember panel considered a host of post-Fukushima safety reforms. The NRC issued several orders last year on the first anniversary of the disaster, including a requirement that plants install or improve venting systems to limit core damage in a serious accident. вЂњI compliment my colleagues and the staff for their sustained efforts on this issue and for taking a hard look at a complex matter,вЂќ Macfarlane said in a statement. Macfarlane took over the agency last summer after its former chairman, Gregory Jaczko, resigned amid complaints about an unyielding management style that fellow commissioners and agency employees described as bullying. CHANGE OF DATE, PLACE AND TIME NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING FLORIDA KEYS AQUEDUCT AUTHORITY Macfarlane, a geologist, has pledged a strong commitment to collegiality since taking over the agency last July. Commission records show she and commissioner George Apostolakis, both Democrats, supported the filter requirement but were outvoted by the three other commissioners. Edwin Lyman, a nuclear expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists, a watchdog group, called the commissionвЂ™s decision disappointing. вЂњWe think the (NRC) staff made a sound caseвЂќ for the filter requirement, Lyman said. вЂњWe donвЂ™t think we need more study.вЂќ Lyman and other critics blamed the decision on intense lobbying against the rule by the nuclear industry. вЂњThe level of industry oppo- TROPIC CINEMA вЂў 416 Eaton St. QUARTET (1:30), 3:45, 6:00, 8:10 HYDE PARK ON HUDSON (2:00), 4:00, 6:10, 8:15 SOUND CITY 4:30 RUST & BONE (2:15), 6:45, 9:00 THE IMPOSSIBLE (1:45), 4:10, 6:15, 8:20 361312 BUY TIX WWW.TROPICCINEMA.COM вЂў 877-761-3456 sition really was a force that derailed the commissionвЂ™s decision-making,вЂќ Lyman said.

The intent is that they learn a lesson, but they also have the opportunity to keep their records clean. We donвЂ™t want them to not be able to join the military or get into a good college and this resolution accomplishes that.вЂќ IDDS can require an offender to do a lot of different things, as the program вЂ” funded by the Department of Juvenile Justice and administrated by the SheriffвЂ™s Office вЂ” is tailored to each case, said SheriffвЂ™s Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin. вЂњIt really depends on the child and the offense, but typically it means counseling that includes monitoring the kidвЂ™s grades, meeting with the family and drug testing is sometimes a part of it.

Teachers were informed about the lockdown by email, and the police were actually called by the parents of a student, who had called home to say she was safe.

MANDY MILESвЂ™ AWARD-WINNING Tan Lines Every Sunday. Only in THE CITIZEN Sex abuse survivor launches walk in Key West BY TERRY SCHMIDA Citizen Staff If that old adage that вЂњthe longest journey begins with a single stepвЂќ is true, than sexual abuse survivor Lauren Book is well on the way to completing her trip. BookвЂ™s journey is a personal odyssey of healing. From the time she was 11, the Aventura native was sexually molested and otherwise physically abused by a nanny for over six years. She has not let the experience defeat her, however. On Tuesday morning, Book laced up her trusty Brooks running shoes, paused for a photo op at the Southernmost Point, and began walking вЂ” to Tallahassee. Beginning in 2010, Book has undertaken an annual walk across Florida to the state capitol to raise awareness about child sexual abuse and help lobby for specific legislation. Book is also the founder of the LaurenвЂ™s Kids nonprofit and the author of a memoir, вЂњItвЂ™s OK to Tell: A Story of Hope and Recovery.вЂќ This yearвЂ™s Walk in My Shoes event will see Book criss-crossing the state, walking 1,500 miles to the capitol steps, where a вЂњRally in TallyвЂќ will stress BookвЂ™s 2013 legislative priorities. вЂњWeвЂ™re trying to create a standardized abuse prevention curriculum that will reach every child in the state in grades one through five,вЂќ said Book, who previously championed a similar, successful initiative for prekindergarten and kindergarten students. вЂњProtecting our kids is just as important as teach- ing them their ABCвЂ™s and 123вЂ™s. And 95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable through education.вЂќ Book, whose father is a wellknown attorney and lobbyist, is also pushing for passage of HB 7031, which would extend the вЂњvictimless prosecutionвЂќ option вЂ” currently available to victims 11 years old and younger вЂ” to children as old as 16. вЂњBasically, information gathered during an interview at a child advocacy center by a child protective team member or an investigator could be used in court so that the victim wouldnвЂ™t need to testify on the stand,вЂќ Book explained. Should the bill pass, it will be yet another legislative feather in BookвЂ™s cap. She has devoted her life to working with her foundation to further the cause of child sex abuse victims, and has advocated for a number of legislative initiatives over the years, including HB 525, which, in 2010, eliminated the statute of limitations for both civil and criminal prosecutions for crimes related to sexual assault committed against children under 16. Last year, Book promoted HB 1355, which requires anyone with knowledge of abuse of children to call the Florida Photos by MIKE HENTZ/The Citizen From left is sister Sam Book, photographer Omar Vega, Lauren Book and walk director Anne Marie Frawley moving along the Heritage Trail on Stock Island Tuesday on the way to Big Coppitt. At left, Lauren Book speaks to a crowd Tuesday in Key West. Department of Children and FamiliesвЂ™ (DCF) hotline, at 1800-962-2873. That law became effective in October. LaurenвЂ™s Kids has also partnered with DCF to launch the DonвЂ™t Miss the Signs campaign, an attempt to educate adults on the warning signs of child abuse, and the process of making a report. Book said she got the idea for the walks while healing from her own experience. вЂњIt was really important to me to come up with a way to meet other individuals, and find out how theyвЂ™re helping themselves, and where they go for help,вЂќ Book said. вЂњI figured that the best way was to hit the road and walk, and talk with people. Over the years it really has helped make a difference. I see people now that I met on my first walk who didnвЂ™t know where to turn back then, and now theyвЂ™re doing better, maybe in stable relationships. ItвЂ™s all about helping survivors to be survivors.вЂќ On Tuesday, Book held a press conference and rally at the Key West Publix, where she promoted Walk in My Shoes. Among the attendees was Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel. вЂњWe really appreciate all the work done by victimвЂ™s advocates, including Lauren Book,вЂќ Vogel said. вЂњThis is a really amazing thing that sheвЂ™s doing.вЂќ BookвЂ™s walk across the state will take in 55 events in 42 days, including a stop 10 a.m. today at ChristinaвЂ™s Courage, 1663 Dunlap Drive in Key West, where she will connect with survivors at the sexual assault treatment center.

Owners stall on helmet law PHOENIX вЂ” Concerned with how it will be officiated, NFL owners delayed voting Tuesday on a rule change that would ban offensive players from using the crown of their helmets against defenders in the open field.

Also banned is overloading a formation while attempting to block a field goal or extra point. MLB, NFL face sked dilemma PHOENIX вЂ” Major League Baseball is looking into a solution to a scheduling issue that could prevent the Super Bowl champion Ravens from opening next season in Baltimore. Traditionally, the NFLвЂ™s champs kick off the season on the Thursday night after Labor Day with a home game. But the Orioles are set to play the White Sox that night at Camden Yards, which uses the same parking lots as the RavensвЂ™ stadium. вЂњFrom a baseball competitive standpoint, it would be very difficult to change times.

KEY WEST вЂ” When Coral Shores comes visiting to Key West (or vice versa), you can count on it being an important sports event. And it will be no different at 7:30 tonight, when the Hurricanes and Conchs hook up in a District 16-4A baseball game at Rex Weech Field. Key West goes into the game, perhaps looking forward a bit. The Conchs are 10-3 overall and 31 in the district, much improved from a year ago. Coral Shores is 6-5 overall, but only 0-3, including an earlier loss to Key West, in the district. The Conchs are looking to wrap up tonightвЂ™s game, then look to the April 6 game against St. Brendan, which, with another victory, would lock up the No. 1 seed in the district tournament. вЂњFor us, itвЂ™s a three-game season,вЂќ said Conch Coach Miguel Menendez on Tuesday. вЂњWednesdayвЂ™s game, the game against St. Brendan and the district semifinal.вЂќ Wins in those games would assure Key West of going into the state playoffs.

But it was a Kalen Carter two-RBI double that really got the HurricanesвЂ™ rally started. Down 1-0 headed into the fourth inning the Hurricanes scored 5 run to take the four-run lead. The Knights cut into the lead with a pair of runs before Coral Shores put up seven runs in the sixth inning to take control of the game at 12-3. Up only two, Carter broke the game open with a double off the top of the fence to give the Hurricanes a four-run lead and from there the Hurricanes never looked back. Carter was also big on the mound, picking up the win in five innings of work. He allowed four earned runs on six hits and struck out five. Matt Cavanaugh closed the game working the final two innings, striking out two.

When I was young, my father would fondle my mother when I came to sleep with them when I had a nightmare. (She would rebuff his advances.) He would also watch porn in front of me. As I matured, he made comments about my figure. He would barge into my room without knocking and insist he didnвЂ™t have to knock. HeвЂ™d tell dirty jokes or talk about sexually inappropriate things. (The day after my wedding he asked my husband how our wedding night had been.) But with all of this, he never touched me or assaulted me. His actions affected my self-esteem and relationships because as I grew up I thought the only thing I had to offer was being sexy. Thankfully, therapy and my husband helped me to see myself as a fully dynamic person. I recently began seeing a new counselor who thinks my father was just a dirty old man -- nothing more. Was I abused? Any information you have would be appreciated. -WONDERING IN WISCONSIN DEAR WONDERING: When a parent attempts to initiate sex or watch pornography in front of a child, it is sexualizing behavior and it could also be considered вЂњgroomingвЂќ behavior. Your fatherвЂ™s actions were so far out of the normal boundaries that they were off the charts. And yes, it WAS a form of abuse. My advice is to change counselors. DEAR ABBY: My daughter is mentally ill, homeless and on meth. A year ago, when she wasnвЂ™t so bad, she asked if I would take her 3-yearold daughter, вЂњLucy,вЂќ so she could get herself together. Unfortunately, she went the other direction. It was fine when I thought that the arrangement was temporary, but when I realized I would be raising Lucy as a single parent at 49, things got hard. My so-called friends have abandoned me, and so has my much younger boyfriend. But what is actually killing this is that I get no respite. I am an extreme introvert. Constant contact drains me. When I donвЂ™t have my вЂњrechargeвЂќ time, I tune Lucy out, and the next thing I know she has cut up the curtains or hidden my shoes. IвЂ™m afraid IвЂ™m just going to lose it. Work doesnвЂ™t count; there are people there, too. Bad thoughts are going through my head because I feel such resentment. I know if I had time for my own mental health, I could be a good surrogate mother to Lucy, but if I canвЂ™t, IвЂ™m starting to think I may have to give her up, and that breaks my heart. I want to scream, to throw things, to just leave the house and walk until I drop. Please help me. -- END OF MY ROPE DEAR END: How much time do you need to recharge? Would it be an hour or hour and a half at the end of each workday? Would an afternoon during the weekends suffice? Have you discussed this with LucyвЂ™s grandfather or her paternal grandparents? They might be willing to get involved and lighten your load. Would a neighbor watch your grandchild on a regular basis if you compensated her or him? How about the person who already takes care of Lucy while youвЂ™re at work? Please explore these options if you havenвЂ™t already. Screaming, throwing things and leaving the little girl alone are not viable scenarios. However, if you feel that you might harm her, it would be better if you placed her for adoption or in foster care. 220 HELP WANTED LOWER KEYS 220 HELP WANTED LOWER KEYS 220 HELP WANTED LOWER KEYS 220 HELP WANTED LOWER KEYS 230 HELP WANTED MIDDLE KEYS 230 HELP WANTED MIDDLE KEYS 416 FURN CONDOS LOWER KEYS 417 UNFURN.CONDOS LOWER KEYS REMINGTON LODGING AND HOSPITALITY Is now hiring for the following positions: THE FISH CAMP On Geiger Key.
