November 10, 2012: Keys Net - Weekly Newsletter

November 10, 2012: Keys Net - Weekly Newsletter
  • A now-former substitute teacher in Keys schools remained jailed in lieu of $145,000 bond Friday following his arrest on Thursday for allegedly possessing a huge cache of child porn.

    William Britt, 55, formerly of Cudjoe Key, is charged with 123 counts of possessing child pornography and seven counts of possessing a photograph of a sexual performance by a child. All are felonies.
  • A Monroe County employee accused of skimming money from an Upper Keys trash transfer station turned himself Thursday night on a misdemeanor charge of theft and a felony charge of official misconduct.

    David Sinclair, 58, of Key Largo works at the county's transfer station on Card Sound Road. He's accused of stealing $22.23 in tipping fees, although Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson has said he believes the theft goes deeper than that.
  • As day turned into night on Friday and the night extended, Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office staff and volunteers continued conducting an automated recount of more than 32,000 ballots to determine if Ed Davidson of Marathon or John Welsh from Key West will be the next District 3 representative on the School Board.

    Around 10:20 p.m., the winner was proclaimed: Davidson, 16,362 votes to Welsh's 16,146.
  • As the fall cool fronts sweep through every 10 days or so, the water temps steadily cool, spurring the fish to feed aggressively.

    Sailfish are making an appearance on the reef in appreciable numbers, as indicated by the palpable quantity of flags flying back at the docks. Anglers are taking them as they shower bait and by live-baiting off the deeper reef edge. Ballyhoo, pilchards and goggle eyes are the baits of choice, although small blue runners will work in a pinch.
  • Brisk conditions last week marked the end of October but not the end of hurricane season. Sandy reminded us all that it is not over till it is over. As things begin to settle back down, there are lots of fishing opportunities for anglers looking to fish the backcountry or offshore.
  • Offshore fishing has been fantastic. Party boats have been a great way to get out there. Richard Deleon from Miami caught a 35-pound “smoker” kingfish on 30-pound spinning gear aboard Capt. Chan Warner’s party boat The Gulfstream out of Key Largo last week.
  • Question: We recently hired a new bookkeeper who has converted us to QuikBooks. She showed us several really "spiffy" reports that could be generated. I think she called them a "dashboard."

    After our meeting, my partner and I discussed the kinds of information we would like to see on our dashboard but felt we were missing something. What kinds of things do most businesses have on their dashboard?
