Angered over a lowball counteroffer over the cost of sharing wastewater treatment, commissioners with the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District last month ended negotiations with Islamorada councilmen and village staff. Key Largo said connecting to its treatment system would cost Islamorada $11.5 million. The five-member village council came back with an offer of $3 million. The deal appeared over until now. Four of the Islamorada councilman now say they regret the counteroffer and want to start talks again. Councilman Don Achenberg said he spoke to Key Largo wastewater commissioners this week, asking them to reconsider their decision to end talks.I voiced my concern that we as a council made a mistake in making the offer we did. [Wastewater commission chairman Robert Majeska] told me it was a closed door, but it could be open again, Achenberg told his colleagues at a July 12 budget meeting. Wastewater district commissioners Majeska and Andy Tobin want to make a deal with Key Largo because they say handling the extra flow would help Key Largos treatment plant run better, and money from Islamorada would help fund the $150-million system. But commissioners Charles Brooks and Norm Higgins have opposed a deal.Commissioner SusanIslamorada courts Key Largo district for second chanceBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA KEY WESTKeynoter Photo by SEAN KINNEYMajesty of the Seas docks at Pier B on Thursday.Industry proponents say enlarging the Key West ship channel is needed to accommodate even larger vessels.Debate joined on dredgingBefore the decade-long regulatory process could begin on widening Key Wests shipping channel, proponents face changing federal law that prohibits the dredging needed to accommodate larger cruise ships. On Wednesday, the city hosted a public workshop, giving residents details of the proposal and allowing comment for interested stakeholders, including federal reps and local residents. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed a reconnaissance study last November that deemed the project economically viable, setting a price tag at about $35 million. The next step, which will require Key West City Commission approval, involves committing 50 percent to fund a $5 million feasibility study that would further analyze a host of environmental and economic impacts. Key West now schedules visits for about 350 cruise ships carrying roughly 800,000 passengers a year; that generates $2.5 million in landing fee revenues that go into the citys general fund. Billy Causey, a Key West-based regional director of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Associations National Marine Sanctuary Program, addressed the feasibility of the widening, which wouldEconomic benefits vs.environmental alarms raisedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTourism boon or bust?Acrowd of more than 100 Key Westers packed Old City Hall on Wednesday airing pros and cons for widening the citys ship channel to allow larger cruise ships into the harbor. Sentiments were nearly equally divided. Heres a sampling: Cara Higgins, president of the Key West Chamber of Commerce: The Key West Chamber believes channel widening is critical to the future of our community and must be made with the full understanding of the impact on our community. We urge moving forward with the feasibility study phase of this endeavor without haste. Todd Glenn, a William Street resident: I wish we were meeting to get rid of the cruise ship industry all together. How many more deals with the devil are we wiling to make? He railed against continued economic dependence on cruise ship passengers calling it fiscally irresponsible, and likening it to using a credit card to pay the mortgage. Lu Kramer, owner of an ice cream stand inside Clinton Square Market, adjacent to two cruise ship berthings: The people that make money for us are the cruise ship passengers. Our little sweet shop will make as much as $2,000 on a day aReactions mixed at workshop on dredging proposalBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com GOOD DEEDKeynoter Photo by SEAN KINNEYHunter Wampler,21,worked alongside a group of 40 Habitat for Humanity volunteers from Winter Haven who worked on homes in the Bahama Village.The church youth group from St.Johns United Methodist Church has made three trips to the Florida Keys. Gov. Rick Scott interviews JaraInterim Superintendent of Monroe County Schools Jesus Jara, looking to drop the interim from his title via gubernatorial appointment, had a half-hour interview Friday morning with Gov. Rick Scott in Miami. Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson joined Scott for the vetting session.The governors appointments office on Friday confirmed there is another applicant for the job: Ed Davidson, a dive shop operator and frequent critic of school district policies and administrators.Jara moved up to the superintendents post two weeks ago after his predecessor Joseph Burke was hired to be superintendent of Lee County schools. Burke was appointed to the seat by former Gov. Charlie Crist and that appointment runs until November, 2012.Jara told the Keynoter Friday afternoon that he interviewed with the governor in the morning, then participated in a roundtable discussion with five of his counterparts from MiamiDade, Hillsborough, Walton, Orange and Duval counties.I think it went well, Jara said. He asked me questions about what we were doing and where I would take the district. Hes really concerned about not only parental choice, but also the voice of parents in our school system.I think within the next week theyre supposed to make a decision or an announcement. I told them that my goal is to win the appointment and to be here for more than 18 months. Jara is technically filling out the term of former Superintendent Randy Acevedo who was elected in 2008, only to be turned out of the job following felony charges of official misconduct.Acevedo, found guilty by a Key West jury, was sentenced to three years probation, fines and community service.Acevedos term ends in November 2012. Last year, Keys voters countywide opted to change the way the schools chief is selected moving from an elected position to a hired post answerable to the five-member elected School Board.During Fridays roundtable discussion Jara said he made the point that small districts like Monroe have a hard time meeting state assessment and accountability requirements.We have the same state requirements for Monroe County as we do in MiamiDade. Miami-Dade has departments and staff whereas we have one person. One of the other things that [Scott] talked about is how we can have an accountability system for our finances similar to what we do for education. That conversation was started.Davidson also applies for top school postOUR SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSee Dredge,2ASee Reaction,2ASee Islamorada,3A Apply now Want to attend the USS Spruance commissioning?

expand Cut B of the channel from 300 feet to 450 feet. Dredging and filling is prohibited in the waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, he said. We currently do not have a permit category that we could find that would be possible to use for permitting this activity. Causeys words triggered loud applause from many in the standing-room-only crowd that packed Old City Hall for the workshop. Sanctuary spokeswoman Karrie Carnes, in an email to the Keynoter, explained more specifically the prohibition on dredging. Dredging and destruction of coral and sea fan resources would take either a change in [Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary] regulations or a permit, Carnes wrote, and upon initial review it is unclear that there are any permit categories for which this project would qualify.Permits are typically issued for research, educational, archeological, or other projects, which increase the scientific understanding or natural resource value of the Sanctuary and its resources.Carnes said the process resulting in regulatory changes would require review under the National Environmental Policy Act, and, may take two to three years at a minimum.Among the most colorful comments heard came from William Street resident Todd Glenn. He said that more cruise ship passengers would deter the land-based, multiday tourists, who spend significantly more money, and degrade the overall experience of visiting Key West.Were losing them because of this amusement park like atmosphere, Glenn said, adding that cruise ship passengers were transforming Duval Street into redneck Disney World meets Myrtle Beach.Lots of numbers were presented, but two stood out during the long back-and-forth. Derived from multiple sources including NOAA, the county Tourist Development Council and citys strategic plan, it appears that cruise ship passengers add about $68.7 million a year in spending to Key Wests economy, while overnight lodging guests contribute roughly $912 million a year to the local economy.We dont want negative impacts from short term visitors reducing the number of longer term visitors, Mark Songer, president of environmental advocacy group Last Stand, said. Jim Fitton, the citys director of port operations, said that not pursuing the channel widening would eventually make Key West an obsolete port-of-call. Theyll bypass us and go straight to Mexico, he told the packed room. Royal Caribbean used to be our biggest client. In a couple of years, itll be down to no boats; thats where were going. In response, many residents who spoke pressed for identification of who exactly asserted that Key West, a popular and relatively safe domestic port, would be crossed off itineraries.Fitton named Michael Ronan, Royal Caribbeans vice president of government relations for the Caribbean, Latin America and Asia.From an email Ronan sent Fitton on July 13: All ships we have built and are planning to build since 2005...cannot call Key West under present channel conditions. We operate our newest, largest ships in the Florida/Gulf and East Coast itineraries. As we bring on our newer vessels they replace older, smaller ones on the preferred U.S. itineraries. We presently operate routes that would call Key West if the channel could accommodate them.With the opening of the new larger locks in the Panama Canal [scheduled for a 2014 completion] our ship designs for the forseeable [sic] future will be of a size that will not be able to call Key West if the channel is not modified. cruise ship is here and thats in cookie and ice cream sales. Dont tell me the cruise ship passengers dont spend money in this city. Naja Girard, local environmental activist: We should not ask the [U.S. Army Corps of Engineers] to begin a feasibility study until relief from marine sanctuary regulations has been attained. Were talking about doing something right now thats not legal. Key West attorney David Paul Horan: It must be well understood that the new larger ships that require the wider channel do not equate to more passengers. Key West would not be detrimentally affected by the additional passengers, but would benefit from the additional revenue. Elliot Baron, former cochairman of advocacy group Livable Old Town: The main industry isnt cruise ship tourism, it is tourism. To think that those tourists who come and really spend the lion share and keep the economy going want more cruise ships or bigger cruise ships or cruise ships at all is a very large assumption which I dont think is supported by any data and isnt true.John Wells, chief executive officer of Caribe Nautical Services: Tourism is the life blood of the Key West economy. Tourists have a right to visit our island via road, air or ship in a safe and convenient manner. Who is to say one type of tourist is better than others? Only those with narrow and self-serving outlooks on the world around them.Passengers spend moneyFrom Reaction,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,July 16,2011 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.9280 SUN.9180 MON.9181 TUES.9281 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers.

Drug program could moveAlong-running Middle Keys drug rehabilitation program is in danger of closing its doors for good this September. But Guidance Care Center Director A.B. Maloy says shes in talks with The Village South, a sister agency in Miami, to save the long-running Keys to Recovery program. Both are part of the Florida division of WestCare, Inc. We cant afford to sustain the residential community here. The Village has the capacity and the overhead to do what we were doing on the funds provided, Maloy said. The Care Center has operated the six-month program for Monroe County drug offenders for the past 18 years in Marathon. State and local funding cuts left the center unable to cover the programs projected $150,000 deficit for this year, Maloy said. Maloy said shes trying to save the program by moving it, not do away with it as has been rumored. What were trying to do as an agency is maintain and redesign Keys to Recovery. We dont want to lose the program. The beds The Village South will be overseeing we hope will still be exclusively for Monroe County residents. Keys to Recovery will still exist and change location. Everything else will remain much the same, she said. Keys to Recovery is for male felons with substance abuse problems. Those who qualify spend the final six months of their jail sentence at the center receiving inpatient treatment. After three months theyre encouraged to get a job and save for a place to live after being released. Primarily its designed to assist people who have such intense substance abuse problems that they keep having run-ins with the law, Maloy said.Keys to Recovery has been subsidized over the years using funding from the state Department of Corrections, Monroe County and the South Florida Behavioral Health Network, as well as client fees. But there have been substantial cuts to the nonprofit in recent years, including roughly $60,000 this year by the countys Human Services Advisory Board. Maloy said she will appear before the County Commission at Thursdays budget meeting in an attempt to reinstate that funding. The situation we found ourselves in is various funding sources-not the countywere being cut and we didnt have a way to address it any further, she said. The only other alternative was to shut it completely and we didnt find that acceptable. Eight full-time employees administer the Keys to Recovery program. Maloy said all would be offered different positions at the center. Funding cuts threaten Keys To RecoveryBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY Subscriptions 743-5551

For the second time since they began in June 2008, at least one Marathon City Council member is questioning the value of advertised workshops held just hours before twice-monthly public meetings. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay on Tuesday said hed like the meetings held at 10 a.m. on the morning of council meetings abolished because theyre expensive and it takes a lot of staff time. Im asking the council to review that briefing session and see if we want to continue it or not. With budgets being tight and nobody showing up I think its a waste of time, he said. As he did in June 2009, Councilman Pete Worthington criticized the openness of the meetings. He said hed rather attendance at staff meetings be optional for council members.I dont think some of the pre-decisions being made were that beneficial. Before that wed get briefed by the city manager and if we had questions we call the city attorney, Worthington said. Mayor Ginger Snead noted that if as many as three council members show up, a meeting must be publicly noticed. She said the meetings are useful to her because staff answers questions prior to her making votes later that evening. Councilman Richard Keating said he has no prob-lem with the meeting and left it up to City Manager Roger Hernstadt whether it continues. I dont have a problem with the meeting. I got a lot of complaints from people that said they didnt have access to it and thats why I didnt go to a lot of the meetings, he said. Councilman Mike Cinque agreed the decision whether to halt the briefings should lie with Hernstadt. Roger intends on continuing [the] meeting. I think the only expense is to advertise it, Cinque said. Council members differed on the expense of the meeting, with Worthington saying hes under the impression it costs an average of $2,000 per meeting not counting the ads.Hernstadt told the Keynoter theres basically no cost for the meeting because he would hold a briefing with or without the council. The meeting time is noticed in an ad the city runs listing several other meetings, he said. Were going to walk through it if theyre there or not there, Hernstadt said, referring to City Council members. The council eventually approved a motion to continue advertising the meeting as long as Hernstadt decides to hold it. Council members will show up at their leisure. In June 2009, it was thenVice Mayor Don Vasil and Worthington who said the meetings are inconvenient and lead to decision making without public input. Cinque mayor in 2009 motioned to make attendance at the meetings mandatory, which he remembered did not go over well. ThenCity Attorney Jimmy Morales told the mayor it was illegal to do so. I got hissed and booed at, Cinque said Tuesday, recalling the reaction at the time. The city of Marathons willingness to stake a $750,000 state grant will likely determine whether Crane Point Hammocks zip-line course dream comes to fruition. Crane Point Operations Manager John Henderson gave a detailed presentation to the City Council Tuesday that covered course design, projected attendance, jobs created and most importantly, financing. Zip lines are basically cables strung from platform to platform. Riders attached to them move to each platform through a pulley system. Courses are popular in the Caribbean, Hawaii and other tourist destinations around the globe.According to the presentation, Crane Point estimates the project to cost roughly $1.1 million between hard and soft costs. That includes $260,000 from the nonprofit itself-mostly for startup costsand another $85,000 from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. Thats where the city of Marathon comes in. Henderson requested the city essentially partner with Crane Point in applying for a $750,000 Community Development Block Grant through the state Department of Community Affairs. Its basically job creation money. For every new job you create and guarantee will be in existence for more than a year, theyll give you a grant of $35,000. Its a oneyear, one-shot deal, City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the Keynoter. The grant would be based around Crane Points projection that the zip-line course will require the equivalent of 23 full-time workers to run in the first year. That includes 14 guides and other staff. Several residents spoke in favor of the course, as did council members. But several raised concerns over financing the project. We are here asking the taxpayers to support a private corporation. Are we opening Pandoras box for every corporation to come forward and float some sort of a guarantee on a state grant that may or may not be repaid, Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said. Crane Point offered its property, owned without mortgage by the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust, as collateral for the grant. But Councilman Mike Cinque said that wouldnt work because the city would never put [Crane Point] out.I like the concept. The money has me a bit concerned. This might end up costing us a few dollars, he said. Despite concerns, the council unanimously approved Crane Points request for a series of public hearings beginning at the Aug. 9 City Council meeting. The course will consist of six zip lines starting at the Cracker House and incorporating the historic Adderley and Crane houses as well. It will soar over butterfly meadows, mangroves and the Gulf of Mexico at various points. Crane Point Executive Director Audrey Moir has said no lines would be fixed to trees and that platforms would include educational information about plant and animal species on the 64-acre property. Azip-line course has been in the works for several years at Crane Point as the nonprofit seeks a sustainable revenue stream for expanding education programs, general maintenance and possibly building dorms to house student groups. Henderson told the council the hope is for the course to be operational sometime during the first quarter of 2012.

Achenberg said negotiations could be revived if Hammaker is convinced Islamorada is willing to meet or come close to meeting Key Largos $11.5 million price tag. The key to this is Susan Hammakers vote, Achenberg said Tuesday. Hammaker said in an interview that she believes Key Largo and Islamorada will eventually come to an agreement, but she doesnt want any more of what she calls monkey business from the village council. Eventually, I think this will happen. Id be happy to bring it up, but under very specific and specified conditions, Hammaker said. She said one of these conditions is that Islamorada would be a customer of the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District, and not a member. The village council approved the letter at its meeting Thursday night. It outlines the Villages intent to pay the $11.5 million to Key Largo, unless the five companies that are in the process of designing standalone wastewater systems for the four islands determine that treating wastewater in the Village makes more financial sense. The companiesplans are due by Aug. 31. As part of the opt-out clause, the village council also wants to tell wastewater commissioners that if the engineering companies determine Key Largo is more expensive, then the $11.5 million should be negotiable. Mayor Michael Reckwerdt said he still has issues with the amount, especially if Islamorada isnt really willing to pay it. I still think $11.5 million is too high. Its disingenuous to say here is 11.5 but we dont want to pay 11.5, he said Tuesday. Most of the companies bidding for the Islamorada project so far have publicly told village council members that the Key Largo option is too expensive and fraught with risk. With the exception of the north Plantation Key treatment plant, Islamorada has not planned to build a wastewater treatment system, which the state Cabinet has decided must be completed by December 2015. Key Largo is in the final stages of having all homes and businesses, except the private Ocean Reef community on North Key Largo, connected to its system.Budget issuesThe issue with Key Largo came up during the second of several planned workshop meetings the village council will hold to discuss the 20112012 budget. Council members on June 22 agreed to a proposed property tax rate of $2.52 per $1,000 of taxable property value. That rate would generate the same amount of property tax revenue next fiscal year as the current years rate of $2.28 per $1,000. The villages proposed operating budget for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, is about $9.35 million.

The DACs grants come from the bricks and mortar funds set aside from the bed tax collected in each area. Key Largo and Islamorada have partnered before for our mutual benefit. Nearly 10 years ago, both communities contributed to help pay for the sinking of the Spiegel Grove. The Upper Keys Artificial Reef Foundation is still paying off that debt; a little more than $32,000 remains on the note. Our combined DACs efforts will help make the Nelson government center live up to the cultural part of its name. It shows that we all can work together, even when it means crossing governmental boundaries. Once again, our heartfelt thanks to Key Largo and Islamorada District Advisory Committees for their support. We hope to see everyone at the great upcoming performances planned by the Friends of the Key Largo Cultural Center. Jackie Harder President Key Largo Chamber of Commerce Key LargoLionfish problem getting worseI recently went diving in our beautiful waters and those to the north in Biscayne Bay. What started off as a peaceful experience resulted in an alarming confirmation that the lionfish problem is real. I think we all make the mistake of reading an article or seeing a quick TV clip and becoming concerned only to forget about it an hour later. I too have fallen into this habit. But after Sunday, I am gravely concerned and am starting to realize the extent of this situation. I saw reefs covered with these critters and soon found myself using a makeshift Hawaiian sling to get as many as I could. The days goal soon became to capture and kill as many lionfish as possible. Make no mistake about it the problem is here and the problem is real. If you are any sort of snorkeler, diver, environmentalist, or simply enjoy watching underwater videos, then I suggest you get serious about this and start doing your part. There are several organizations in South Florida that can offer help and guidance. If you want the help, then heres some advice: Get off the couch, get on a boat, go to a reef, and save Mother Nature. Dino Basil Tavernier Put damper on home fireworksIm all for fireworks celebrations, but at the right place and right time. The street in front of your house or your back yard is not the right place considering how closely we live to each other. After 10 p.m. or 11 p.m., (with the exception of New Years Eve) is not the right time, not to mention the fire hazard or possibility of physical injury. For those with small children or pets, these events are nightmares. Parents and pet owners spend the evening trying to console frightened children and animals to no avail because just when you think it has stopped . . It is illegal to use fireworks that leave the ground in Monroe County. I dont understand why the local newspapers devote pages to educate people about mini-season, yet nothing on the regulations concerning fireworks? Why do our local grocery stores sell them? I was told they have a form purchasers must sign stating they will not use them within Monroe County. So, what are the repercussions when they do? Cant this signed form be used against violators? I realize deputies have many more important things to deal with than fireworks calls, but brushing them off does a disservice to our community. As long as they keep getting away with it, they will both the violators and the officers. I just hope no one gets hurt because of it. There are sanctioned fireworks events throughout the Keys there were three in the Upper Keys alone. That is the appropriate place and time for fireworks. The people who coordinate these events put a tremendous amount of time, effort and money into them. Beyond that, they hire licensed, professional companies who have permits for their displays. I guess if your purpose is to annoy and alienate your neighbors by setting off ground-leaving fireworks that land on their roofs, vehicles or landscaping, and scare their children and animals half-to-death, then mission accomplished. Lisa Jacoby Key LargoState party could lose delegates in showdown over primary datesThe box score on Floridas presidential primary may have to add more zeros. Thats because instead of scoring runs, the states GOPleaders seem intent on bunts. Adam C. Smith, a longtime political reporter for the St. Petersburg Times, reported last week that state leaders are eying the possibility of 2012 presidential primary elections on Thursday, March 1, or even Saturday, March 3. What, you might ask, are they thinking? Well, it seems the poobahs in charge are unhappy that Florida gets relegated behind the four early bird GOPbeauty contests held in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. Those four states get special treatment from the national Republican Party, which blocks any other states from holding primaries before the March 6 socalled Super Tuesday votes. As it stands, Florida is currently in violation of the national party rules since the Republican-controlled Legislature set the 2012 presidential primary vote for Jan. 31 in a bid to beat the four early-bird states that have dominated the national political scene for decades. Smith reported that super early date wont likely survive pressure from the national party. But, its unclear what alternate date will wind up gaining support among state GOPpower brokers. Florida Democrats have no voice in the debate, and not much at stake, other than the threat of losing delegates if their GOPcolleagues press forward with the early March dates. You may remember the 2008 presidential primary cycle where the national Democratic Party stripped Florida of its delegates when the primary was held in early February, violating Democratic Party rules. This time around, the Democrats dont really have a dog in the fight, since incumbent Barack Obama will be the partys presidential nominee. On the Republican side of the aisle, the stakes are extremely high, with already more than a half-dozen contenders running for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Bill Nelson. Smith reported that Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos supports any of the March 1-3 dates despite threats the state GOPcould lose delegates to the national convention. That would be ironic, given that Florida is hosting the 2012 GOPnational convention in Tampa. Imagine the host state stripped of delegates by the national party. Republican Adam Putnam, Floridas Agriculture Commissioner, told Smith that Floridas diversity of population and size make it better litmus test for presidential candidates: Alarge diverse state like Florida early in the process is a more meaningful test of the candidatesstrength than any of the other early states. Stay tuned. This could prove to be a critical hurdle for the states Republicans on so many fronts including blowback if they decide that moving primary votes to a Thursday or a Saturday is a smart move after all. Boosting recycling could save $1-2 millionAconsultant hired by the City of Key West reports that as much as 71 percent of the waste produced on the island could be recycled or composted, saving taxpayers millions a year in hauling charges.Yard waste and trash should not be mixed together, Mitch Kessler told city officials and members of the public at a Tuesday evening workshop.Kessler and Robin Mitchell of Tampa-based Kessler Consulting, outlined findings from the firms study so far. The consulting firm is engaged in a 14-month, $379,000 study authorized by the city commission.Composting food scraps and yard waste holds the most potential for savings, he said, along with processing glass for reuse in concrete mix like aggregates.Kessler told the audience at Old City Hall that on his most recent trip to Key West, he noticed several houses fronted by multiple, 90-gallon trash cans filled with palm fronds and other yard waste mixed with household trash.By keeping yard waste separate from household trash, Key West could make a major dent in its historically low recycling rate, which oscillates between 7 percent and 8 percent. Based on a waste composition study released by Kessler in May, yard waste, food scraps and other nonrecyclable (but compostable) paper makes up 40.5 percent of all garbage hauled out of the Southernmost City. He said the national trend in collection is a weekly 1-11 pickup cycle one for compost, one for recycling and one for trash. Key West has two weekly trash pickups plus another for recycling three per week. Kessler said there wouldnt necessarily be an increase in billing, but the viability of that 1-1-1 approach in Key West needs more study. Thats the direction its going in, he said, But can that work on the Keys? He said a high transient population creating large quantities of garbage and fear of smells in tight living quarters as potential issues.About 4 million people in Florida are served by 1-1-1 pickup, he added. I can assure you that 25 percent of the state doesnt smell like garbage.Further results of the waste composition study indicate that discarded newspaper, office paper, cardboard and other recyclable paper make up 17.1 percent of the waste stream; another 13.6 percent is recyclable containers like aluminum cans and bottles. In total, Kessler figured that 71.2 percent of trash being produced in Key West could be recycled or composted rather than torched in a mainland waste-to-energy plant, as is now the case.Also included in the waste composition study was the measure of recyclable glass containers beer and wine bottles, jars, etc. that make up to 8.1 percent of the waste stream.Kessler said that although thats not a huge amount percentage-wise, because glass is bulky and heavy, it drives up the $66 per ton hauling fee levied by the citys hauler, Waste Management.If we could figure out a way to keep it here on the island, Kessler said, were going to look at that. We think there are some opportunities, he said, adding that he had heard rumors that some of the bars generate glass.Pressed by an audience member as to what exactly could be done locally with discarded glass, Kessler said that it can be ground up and used as aggregate while mixing cement or a process that results in a smooth material that can be used for landscaping.Kessler also noted that, in terms of immediate steps to improve recycling rates, multi-family dwellings, which are among the worst recyclers, should be targeted for education, and the hosts of Key Wests year-round rotation of street festivals, fairs, block parties, hootenannies, throwdowns and gettogethers should practice recycling at their events.Jay Gewin, the citys utility manager, summed things up: We need to change our trajectory. Weve had a consistent level of service for quite some time, but our recycling rate has remained flat.The city has two longstanding contracts with Waste Management: one is for hauling to the mainland from the Rockland Key transfer station and the other for curbside trash and recycling pickup. The total cost runs between $5 million and $6 million annually. A30 percent recycling rate would save $1 million each year and a 60 percent rate would save $2 million.Consultants see potential cost savingsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST A 30 percent recycling rate would save $1 million each year.-Mitch Kessler,Kessler Consulting

The assessment for each parcel of property is based, in part, on the number of equivalent dwelling units attributable to such parcel, and, in part, on the number of connections attributable to such parcel. Unless pre paid, the annual assessment will include your share of the principal, interest and collection cost. The maximum annual assessment is estimated to be $415 per EDU and $93 per Connection. Amore specific description is set forth in the Initial Assessment Resolut ion adopted by the City Council on June 9, 2009. Copies of the Initial Assessment Resolution, the plans and specifications for the wastewater collection and treatment facilities, and the preliminary Assessment Roll are available for inspection at the offices of the City Manager, located at 9805 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida. The Assessments for Little Venice were originally imposed by the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (the "Authority") in 2002 and 2003 to fund the construction of the wastewater collection and treatment improvements within the Little Venice Wastewater Distr ict, which was divided into sub-assessment areas based upon the year the initial assessments were imposed. Pursuant to the terms of the Little Venice Transfer Agreement entered into by and between the Authority and the City, the City assumed the ownership and operation of the Little Venice wastewater collection and treatment system on or about October 1, 2008, and the City took over t he annual collection of the outstanding Assessments. The assessment for each parcel of property will be determined in accordance with the calculation procedures adopted by the Authority, which were based on the number of equivalent dwelling units (EDUs) attributable to each parcel. Unless prepaid, the annual assessment include your share of the principal, interest and collectio n cost. The maximum annual assessment is estimated to be $308.82 per EDU for those properties in the 2002 sub-assessment area, and $308.82 per EDU for those properties in the 2003 sub-assessment area. Amore specific description is set forth in Resolution No 02-09 adopted by the Authority on February 21, 2002 and Resolution No. 03-14 adopted by the Authority on June 26, 2003, which were ratified and confirmed by the City with the adoption of Resolution No. 2008-119 on August 12, 2008. Copies of these resolutions, the Little Venice Transfer Agreement, and the updated Assessment Roll are available for inspection at the offices of the City Manager, located at 9805 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida. The assessments will be collected on the ad valorem tax bill, as authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title. The City C ouncil intends to collect the assessments in not to exceed twenty (20) annual assessments, the first of which was included on the ad v alorem tax bill mailed in November 2008 for Service Area 4 & 6, 2009 for Service Area 1,3,5, & 7, 2002 for Little Venice Service Area. Future annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner. If you have any questions, please contact Community Services at (305)289-4104 or (305)289-4115.

Ed Castle, a project manager for city sewer system designer Weiler Engineering, told the council closure will be only during daylight hours.I anticipate within three weeks wed be done, he said. Residents of the oceanside street spoke before the City Council Tuesday complaining about the project and saying the roads been completely closed off for days at a time in recent months. Patty Ivey, a longtime Florida Department of Transportation project administrator, lives on 97th Street. She said residents have been denied vehicular access to their homes, had to walk through construction zones with heavy equipment operating and were without mail delivery or garbage pickup at times. I wholeheartedly support the...stormwater project, just not the way its being accomplished, she said. Another resident, Donna Almaguer, said shes walked up and down the street numerous times in dress clothes and high heels she wears to work. Weve lived in a dust bowl since February, she said. The council listened to residentsconcerns, but unanimously approved a motion to do the work. Councilman Mike Cinque said the city has little choice in completing the stormwater project. The best thing to do is get on it and get it done. Its been an aggravation, he said. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the problem on 97th Street is with existing utility lines or pipes already in place under the road. Hernstadt said work would go on from Monday through Thursday each week until completed. Hes working with the contractor to provide transportation to homes while the road is closed-in the past the contractor has declined citing liability concerns. Were exploring options . that dont create liability and other ancillary issues, he said. Stormwater work closes 97th Street for next 3 weeksBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Dive fee compromise reachedWith Floridas two-day lobster mini-season less than two weeks away, the state and a dive industry trade group have agreed to stand down over a potentially costly charterboat license law. Bob Harris, attorney for the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association (DEMA), said he would drop his lawsuit against the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission after the agency said it would not cite dive charter operators who dont carry a vessel license during sport diving season July 27-28. At issue was a section of Florida law that says no one may operate a boat that charges customers a fee for the purpose of taking a saltwater fish for non-commercial purposes unless the operator has purchased a license for each vessel, which can run from $200 to $2,000 per year. The law mostly has been applied to fishing charterboats, not dive vessels.Some South Florida dive operators said they were told by FWC officers recently that they would have to buy a vessel license in time for miniseason, and a June memo from FWC director of law enforcement Col. Jim Brown to his officers confirmed the requirement. Harris filed suit Monday in Leon County Circuit Court to try to block enforcement of the law.Judge James Shelfer declined to hold a hearing on DEMAs request for an injunction. In the meantime, the FWC said it would back off and Harris said he would drop the case.Thats fabulous. Im glad. I saved $800, said captain Mike Beach, co-owner of RJ Diving Ventures in Miami Beach. Brenda Mace, who operates Conch Republic Divers in Tavernier with husband Gary, already had paid more than $1,200 to license the companys two dive boats. We have commercial licenses for both our vessels and are in compliance, said Michael Pullis, manager of Tildens Dive Center in Marathon. At Horizon Divers in Key Largo, owner Dan Dawson bought a boat license earlier this year for the smaller of his shops two vessels. We always checked for [individual fishing] licenses, Dawson said. We got a memo earlier this year that we would need a boat license to take people spearfishing, so we did. Now were hearing we may not need it. Its more confusing than anything else. Keynoter reporter Kevin Wadlow contributed to this report.State agency backs off for mini-seasonMINI-SEASONBy SUSAN COCKINGScocking@miamiherald.comSearch called costly, arrests followAman mysteriously missing from a July 4 boating trip into the backcountry resulted in this weeks arrest of a Key West man on three misdemeanor counts. Areport of a missing passenger from a private boat triggered a costly sea-and-air search of the Jewfish Basin area, north of Big Coppitt Key, by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Coast Guard units on the holiday, according to FWC reports.Patrol boats responded to the gulfside area after someone aboard the vessel, operated by William Z. Freeman, 21, reported that one of their party might have fallen overboard. FWC Officers Jimmy Johnson and Seth Wingard said after they reached Freemans boat, they determined that no one aboard was sober enough to operate the vessel. Freeman reportedly acknowledged that since he had been drinking, it was unsafe for him to run the boat. The officers instructed Freeman to keep his boat anchored while they searched for the supposedly missing man. Boats and a helicopter swept the area west of Snipe Point, a popular anchoring spot, for more than an hour until officers learned the missing passenger had arrived home. How he made the return trip remains uncertain, FWC Lt. David DiPre said earlier this week. It appears highly possible that the passenger was inadvertently left behind at Snipe Point, DiPre said. It probably cost more than $40,000 to conduct this search, DiPre said. There were several patrol boats involved and putting a helicopter in the area is not cheap.When FWC officers returned to question Freeman, they found his vessel had left the area.Awarrant was obtained for Freemans arrest on counts of boating under the influence, interfering with an FWC officer by disobeying an order to remain, and reckless operation of a vessel. After Freeman was booked into county jail on July 9, he was released on an $8,000 bond.Alcohol-related incident snares Key West manBIG COPPITPopular fireworks still technically illegalThe fireworks that people buy for private use have become more sophisticated in the past several years, but the law limiting them hasnt changed. While it seems the skies over more neighborhoods in South Florida are lit by impressive displays, almost like professional fireworks shows, for the most part the people setting them off are breaking the law, officials say. Florida law prohibits people without specific permits from detonating just about all aerial fireworks and most explosive ground fireworks. Anything that fliesMonroe County Sheriffs Office Chief Lou Caputo said basically anything that flies or pops is illegal for most people to detonate without a permit from the Fire Marshal. Not restricted under the law are sparklers, paper caps for toy guns, novelty fireworks like snakes and glow worms, and other items that basically just produce smoke but no shooting flames. But if you talk to some annoyed neighbors, it appears that illegal fireworks are being used more than ever now. Its only gotten worse, partly due to the same people getting away with it over and over again, said Lisa Jacoby of Key Largo. Aloophole in the state fireworks statute allows people to buy prohibited fireworks if they sign a form saying they will either take the fireworks out of the county or use them for agricultural purposes like scaring birds away from crops or fish hatcheries. Phantom Fireworks, a chain of stores based out of Youngstown, Ohio, has a location in Key Largo that sells both aerial fireworks and less-explosive kinds. William Weimer, vice president and general counsel for Phantom, said when people come into the showroom, they see a sign that states the law regarding fireworks purchases. To buy fireworks, customers must sign a form and state that, because of agricultural usage, they are exempt from the state law that normally forbids buying fireworks. They also sign a statement that says they will take the fireworks out of Monroe County, Caputo said. Weimer said that a Florida court ruled a few years ago that it was up to the buyer to tell the truth on the form, and the store has no duty to inquire about the accuracy of what the purchaser signed. Other stores, like Winn Dixie and Publix, sell fireworks in the Keys, but Caputo said they are mostly sparklers and other nonexplosive devices that dont require signing a waiver or getting a permit. The same goes for the large white tents that pop up around big holiday weekends like the Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day, Caputo said. The tents are inspected by the Fire Marshal. Theyre not authorized to sell anything but legal fireworks, Caputo said. But as the number of skyrockets set off around the Fourth of July suggests, the penalty for using illegal fireworks isnt stiff enough to scare people straight. Using illegal fireworks is a firstdegree misdemeanor. If the public complains and deputies arrive in time to catch violators, they typically confiscate the fireworks. This could be followed by a notice to appear in court, or even the firework shooter being taken into custody, if the deputy determines the situation is dangerous enough, Caputo said. Nevertheless, Caputo said his officers were busy over the July 4 weekend responding to reports of illegal fireworks. We were pretty busy over the holiday. People were shooting them off and our guys were running around like crazy, he said. Deputy Becky Herrin, a spokeswoman with the sheriffs office, said deputies responded to 63 complaints about illegal fireworks from July 2 to July 4. Thats up from 50 during the same time period in 2010. Weimer said the confusion about the legality of buying and using fireworks and the amount of people ignoring the rules warrants a second look at the state law. Maybe its time to reconsider the law and allow the full line of consumer fireworks to be sold, Weimer said. States including Indiana, Utah and New Hampshire have loosened their laws on fireworks sales in recent years. He said that the law was written when fireworks were much more dangerous for the untrained public to handle. In the past decade, the fireworks industry has shifted to a policy of heavy self-testing and serious accidents are rare. The idea that a product is going to blow up in your face is pretty remote, Weimer said. The accidents that do happen are mostly from abuse and misuse, rather than product malfunctions.Sheriffs deputies busy responding to complaints By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comMONROE COUNTYKeynoter Staff

North Miami pitchers threw a one-hitter against the Upper Keys on the way to a 12-0 final score. The bottom line is they had more talent, Upper Keys manager Greg Bianchini said after the game. Our kids arent used to seeing pitching like that. We did well in the field with an error-free game. There were no silly mistakes, Bianchini said. We made plays but North Miami hits the ball hard and had a couple crushing home runs. Miami-Dade leagues pick their all-stars from a larger pool of potential players, many of whom focus on baseball year-round, he said. Jose Lima pitched well for the Upper Keys in relief but the offense never got on track. Dalton Falcucci slapped the Keyslone hit in the semifinal. Our guys dont get to see enough fast pitching in the regular season, Bianchini said. The teams up there are more used to it. Were outnumbered, he said. The upside is that our kids get to grow up in paradise. Its probably a good tradeoff.

Fort Lauderdale freshwater angler Todd Kersey recently lost a local bass tournament held at the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge because he did not check out a littleknown South Florida Water Management District website before he fished. The website, www.sfwmd.gov would have told him which watercontrol structures in the vast marsh were open and how much water was flowing out of them a key indicator of the presence of bass and other game fish. Like ringing the dinner bell, said Kersey, who operates the website basson line.com An open floodgate generates currents that sweep baitfish such as shad and shiners into the waiting mouths of big bass. But current flow can be too much of a good thing, according to Kersey. Like at Holiday Park, you have the big pump right by the dock. If they open one, it creates a big flow. If they open three or four pumps, that usually dirties it up. Theres too much sediment in the water, he said. Know the structure Before consulting the real-time flow website, anglers need to know the name of the structure in the body of water where they plan to fish, said Missie Barletto, an intergovernmental representative with the water district. Amap showing gates, culverts and weirs can be found on the same site. Once a particular floodgate is identified, the angler goes to the real-time flow website and is confronted with a series of letters and numbers. Barletto said the key numbers are in green, which tell in feet how much a water-control structure is open. Avalue of .5 to 1.5 is ideal for fishing; a Barletto said. value of 4.0 or higher would be dont take a boat out there, Because some areas might be closed for maintenance or construction, Barletto said its a good idea to call the districts service center at 1-800-432-2045 before heading out.

Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title. The City Council intends to collect the assessments in not to exceed ten (10) annual assessments, the first of which was included on the ad valorem tax bill mailed in November 2009. Future annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner. If you have any questions, please contact Community Services at (305)289-4104 or (305)289-4115. CITYOF MARATHON, FLORIDAPublished Keynoter 7/16/11 The Upper Keys players walked away with their heads held high, Bianchini said. I think they had a good time, and learned something, he said. Theyre still the Upper Keys all-stars. The Upper Keys posted a 2-2 record in the South Pool round-robin play, finishing as the second-place team. Both wins came over a game but outmanned Marathon allstar squad. Kendall won the South Pool and was expected to advance to the District 8 championship game. The pennant game was scheduled to be played this morning at Key Largo Community Park but with two Miami-Dade teams in the final, there was the possibility the game could be moved to a Miamiarea site. Key West teams play in a different youth-baseball program.Heads held highFrom Baseball,1B the nearest boat ramps to your desired fishing grounds, you can: check with local bait and tackle shops; visit myfwc.com/boating/boatramps-access; or download a free boat ramp app put together by the Take Me Fishing campaign to your iPhone or Android from the Apple iTunes store or Android Marketplace. Different outcomes Another fine point of fishing around water-control structures, according to Kersey, is to understand that water flow affects each canal differently. In some small, narrow canals where floodgates are opened infrequently, a sudden deluge can dirty the water enough to make them unfishable. More consistent are waterways with frequent gate openings, where the bottom tends to stay cleaner. The bass and bluegills know that every Thursday, this is going to go off, he said. Determining the latest information on water flows in South Florida freshwater bodies will become more important through the summer and early autumn as levels rise with the rainy season, Kersey said. The fish are no longer on the banks. They are grouped up chasing bait, he said. Through Oct. 1, you could go out there and find the right pump. Alan Zaremba, a veteran peacock and largemouth bass guide in Hollywood, spends as much as 200 days a year fishing in the Everglades and urban canals. Zaremba said he has never consulted the water districts real-time water flow site, but thats about to change. Im going to have to start researching because the water is coming up fast, he said. Things are changing. Everything is starting to move.Water coming fastFrom Everglades,1Battain speeds in excess of 30 knots. Vertical launch missiles in 96 cells can fire surface-to-air defensive weapons, Tomahawk land attack cruise missiles, and Harpoon antiship missiles. In addition, the USS Spruance will carry two helicopters for search and rescue, anti-surface and anti-submarine weapons deployment and logistics support for the ship. Prospective Commanding Officer, Commander Tate Westbrook, said hes hoping the crew will experience Key West and the commissioning ceremony as a time to have fun. The Pre-Commissioning crew has worked hard, he added, to make Spruance fleet-ready, which means more liberty time in Key West before the ship continues to its new homeport of San Diego, Ca. The ships namesake, Admiral Raymond Spruance was famous as a surface warfare tactician, thrust into the role of Fleet Carrier Group Commander, during the Battle of Midway. Naval historians point to his use of naval air power during that battle, which was considered the turning point of the war with Japan in the Pacific. An entire class of destroyers was named after him and those vessels are just now ending service. Events are planned in Key West during the entire time the USS Spruance will be in port from Sept. 23 through Oct. 3.

LivingDiet drinks promote six-packs (and were not talking abs)No good deed goes unpunished, and that seems to include people who virtuously reach for diet sodas instead of the calorie-laden good stuff. Before guzzling that artificially sweetened beverage in a haze of guilt-free carbonation, bear in mind that your diet soda may only be adding to your bottom line or your waistline. At least thats the conclusion of a recently completed 12-year study. The study looked at 474 people, ages 65 to 74, and found that, on average, those who drank diet sodas ended up with waistlines that increased three times more than those who avoided them. People who consumed more than two diet sodas a day had waistlines that increased five times more than the nondiet soda drinkers, which included people who drank water, juices and even regular sodas, said Helen Hazuda, chief of clinical epidemiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, and one of the studys investigators. These results were comparable to similar studies in younger people, said Hazuda. Belmont, Calif., resident Karen Krebser, 46, has been drinking diet soda since high school in an effort to help manage her weight. Im currently mostly off refined sugar and have tried a zillion different diets, but the one constant has been diet soda, she said. Krebser consumes three or four cans a day since she gave up refined sugar in April. But after hearing about this unpublished study presented at the American Diabetes Association Conference in June she threw out the can of diet soda sitting on her desk. There isnt a single explanation as to why drinks with artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose or saccharin result in us having to squeeze our bulging bellies into larger pants. Part of the reason could be psychological, Hazuda said. Some people splurge on calories in their food because theyre saving on calories in their drinks. Think Big Macs and supersized fries and diet Cokes. Another factor Hazuda thinks plays a role in expanding waistlines is something called taste dysfunction. Because artificial sweeteners taste hundreds to thousands of times sweeter than regular sugar, our bodies come to expect sugary foods to be extremely sweet. So we start to seek out more sugar-laden options. Athird explanation is that our bodies are smarter than we think. When we suck down sweet things, our bodies register the sugary taste and wait for the accompanying calories, said Lillian Castillo, a public health dietitian with the Santa Clara (Calif.) County Public Health Department. But with artificial sweeteners, our bodies dont get the calories they expect, so we start to crave foods high in fat and sugar. Santa Clara resident Karl Watanabe has consumed diet sodas since his wife started buying them exclusively three years ago. But it hasnt really affected his weight, he said. Of course, it helps that I run marathons and do triathlons all the time. Once in a while, its OK to have one, Castillo said. But water is the only thing thats going to quench your thirst. If water is just too bland, Castillo and Hazuda recommended adding slices of lemon or cucumber to brighten the flavor. It may take a couple months for your brain to adjust to the different flavors, but the research suggests if you want those sixpack abs, it doesnt look as if youll be able to find them at the bottom of a six-pack of diet soda.Study shows diet drinkers waists expandBy Jane J.LeeMcClatchy-Tribune News ServiceHEALTH Big Pi n e Key, FL 305-872-4272 www.keys d e nt is t co mChr is to p h e r D.

The groups first Walkabout in January drew about 400 people, and by April approximately 1,000 people came to enjoy the festivities, which showcase different visual artists, bands, non-profits and multimedia entertainment each month. In addition to works at the member businesses, Gallery Morada, Redbone Gallery, Matecumbe Studio Gallery, Pasta Pantaleo Signature Gallery and Bluewater Potters, the featured artist this month will be Michelle Lowe. This Islamorada painter will be showcasing her bright tropical-themed watercolors in one of the main tents along Morada Way. Other artists displaying their works at various booths will include oil and acrylic painters Jason Barth and Rueben Machado, as well as Lynda Delene Kanner, who works in watercolor. The Jim Costello Quartet will entertain the crowds with live jazz starting around sunset. Newman & Associates will be on hand with a videographer to film portions of the event for the TDCs website. Organizers are hoping for a strong turnout. Noted underwater photographer, Stephen Frink, participated in the walk for the first time last month, installing a selection of his works for permanent display at Bluewater Potters. The owners, Corky and Kim Wagner, opened this second location in February to supplement their Key Largo studio.

The mecca of contemporary art has left its home at 1120 Duval St. for a larger and brighter space minutes away at Simonton and Greene streets. Lucky Streets new space is owned by Sandra McMannis, who has bought the gallery and will serve as director. McMannis, a selfproclaimed recovering lawyer, is a board member of The Studios of Key West and Sculpture Key West. I had been thinking since last December about starting a gallery, McMannis says, and then came a serendipitous e-mail exchange with the people at Lucky Street asking if I was interested, so now I am the new keeper of the light. Sculptor John Martini, who started the Lucky Street in the early 1980s, will continue to have his work represented at the new location. He says hes happy to say that we found the scenario for which we had been searching. The gallerys previous location was about to be subdivided by the owner, and unless a move was made, the Lucky Street would have lost half its space. For a while, I was afraid there would be no place ... for contemporary artists to show, says artist Claudia Richards, but then Sandra McMannis came through with the great space on Greene Street, new energy and hope for the place Key West holds in the art world. May we continue to be so lucky. The Greene Street location is just up the road from the Pier House Resort and encompasses 2,100 square feet. Floor-to-ceiling windows separate the gallery from the outside world while allowing a perfect amount of natural light to display the artistsworks. McMannisintegration of movable T-shaped walls to display the art has increased hanging space by 100 feet while creating drama and ambiance amid the modern neutral decor.

What is happening here with the art districtthe sense of community that has to do with the art walkis really transformational for this area, Frink said. The ambience is terrific. People enjoy walking around and having fun in an area where theres a concentrated and eclectic mix of artists with very nice presentation. He added that the arts district was unique because of its location along the Old Highway between the Green Turtle and Hurricane Memorial. You really need the Old Highwaya place to park and walk. Its convenient and easily visible off the highway, so people dont get confused. Laurie Wickham represents more than 200 artists and craftspeople at Gallery Morada, and she said that the art walks play an important role in the community, providing both locals and tourists with something unique to do in the evenings. Theres very little to do here at night other than eat and drink, she said. I suspect that when some visitors are planning their activities in advance, they might not consider shoppingor art and cultureas something available in an area where the focus has always been water-related. Painter, Pasta Pantaleo, said that by simply staying open later for the art walk, the galleries provide people with much greater access to local art and artists. Alot of locals work the same hours that the galleries and artists do, so this provides them the opportunity to come out and see the galleries, explore and have fun. The Walkabout shows a commitment by all the galleries to reach out, and its a great feeling that businesses care more about sharing than selling. Wickham added that some of the artists with booths at the monthly events dont have a local venue in which to permanently show their work. This enables them to reach more people and make their own community aware of the talent that is here, she said. Islamorada resident, Elaine Schulberg, has been coming to the walks since they first began, and she said that she has enjoyed watching the event grow. It started very slow, and Ive loved seeing the expansion, she said. Its a social thing, of course, and its fun to talk with the other locals. Each time I run into more people who say this is their first walk, and they love it. I think it enhances the whole area. It gets people into places that they havent been before, and hopefully once theyre there, they will support them. While Key West is a veritable arts juggernaut with its three art walks each monththe Full Moon Howl on Upper Duval Street, the Walk on White and the First Thursday at Caroline Street Art and Design District Wickham said that the Islamorada group wasnt looking at their venture as a way to compare or compete. Old Town Key West is really a walkingisland and much more densely populated. We physically could never offer as many options as it does. Were broadening the attraction of the entire Keys for art aficionados, and hopefully were keeping people in the island chain a day or two longer, now that there is more than one art venue to explore. Frink noted that the fact that Islamorada only has the one art walk might not be such a bad thing. Key West has more artists in a smaller area and more of a city atmosphere, but another way to look at it is that because we dont have that many walks, its a little more special. Wickham said that Islamorada already has a strong following and reputation for sportfishing, fine resorts and restaurants, and their goal now is to increase the visibility of the art scene. We need to expand it and make people aware theres more to our area than sportfishing. The entire Keys are filled with talented, skilled artists and craftspeople. Its something we may not be known for yet, but I think the district will change that soon. The Morada Way Arts & Cultural Districts Third Thursday Walkabout will take place Thursday, July 21 from 6-10 p.m. at mile marker 82 on the Old Highway, from the Hurricane Monument to the Green Turtle Restaurant.

Oh, and you are restricted to non-perishable food no fresh veggies, fruits or meats to wow the judges. That sets a pretty high bar, but one which Key West chefs amateurs and pros have successfully scaled in the Key West Top Shelf Chef Cooking Contest. Last year, judges selected Ray Masieros Sweetn Sour Soup as the winning entry, along with his Candied Spam dessert. The Peoples Choice title for a second year-in-a-row went to Becky Andrews, who created a Southwest barbecue tamale pie with black bean salad. In previous competitions, dishes have covered a wide range of ingredients and cooking styles, including ginger chicken, crab and corn chowder, pot pies and pastas. The contest is a benefit for the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition for the Homeless. Chefs and the hungry crowd that gets to vote gather from 5-8 p.m. Friday, July 22, at the Bottlecap Lounge, 1128 Simonton St., Key West, for this years Top Shelf Cooking Contest. Celebrity bartenders will be serving drinks. All tips will be donated to Florida Keys Outreach Coalition. The chefs who participate include professionals along with amateurs who want to strut their stuff. To register for the competition, call Stephanie at 294-0304.

And with the suns strong rays upon us in summer, South Floridians should take extra caution in July and August. The incidence of skin cancer is about 3.5 million per year, or one in five Americans, said Dr. Keyvan Nouri, professor of dermatology and cutaneous surgery at the University of Miamis Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. In Florida, thats even greater due to the proximity to the equator and intensity of the sun, said Nouri, director of Mohs micrographic surgery at Sylvester, a procedure used to treat common types of skin cancer. There are three types of skin cancer: basal cell, squamous cell, and melanoma. While melanoma is the most deadly, basal and squamous cell carcinomas are much more common, according to Dr. Brian J. Katz, a dermatologist at the Miami Beach Skin Center. About 75 to 80 percent are of the basal cell type. Squamous cell skin cancers are about 20 to 25 percent of skin cancers overall, he noted. These cancers originate in the skins top layer, the epidermis, and are named after the cells they affect, the basal cell or the squamous cell. Basal cells lie at the base layer of the epidermis, while squamous cells rest above this base layer. Overexposure to the suns radiation can result in the production of cancer cells, which divide and reproduce faster than average cells, according to the American Cancer Society. Though skin cancer can affect anyone, people with light skin or a family history of skin cancer should be especially cautious, according to Dr. Eduardo Weiss, a dermatologist at Memorial Regional Hospital. People who have had organ transplants are also at high risk because of their weakened immune systems. Because they are caused by cumulative sun damage, these cancers are often seen in older patients. The most important thing to remember is that 60 to 80 percent of sun damage happens in the first 20 years of the life, Weiss said. Applying broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or higher, wearing sun protective clothing and staying out of the sun at peak hours, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., is very important. Once a skin cancer has been contracted, the patient can detect it by paying attention to changes on the skin, according to dermatologist Dr. Betty Bellman, voluntary associate professor of dermatology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. The majority occur on sun-exposed areas anywhere from the hand to the chest to the face. You also should look at the top of the ear and the scalp, and behind the ear, because people dont usually think to put sunscreen there, Bellman said. Basal cell carcinoma develops in three ways: nodular, superficial and infiltrative. Nodular basal cell carcinoma appears as a fleshy colored bump, described as pearly and filled with blood vessels that break open and bleed easily, said Miami dermatologist and Mohs surgeon at a private practice Dr. Eduard Gross, a voluntary professor of dermatology at the University of Miami. Superficial basal cell cancers run just along the skins surface, while infiltrative cancers grow as wispy strands within the skin. Think of the difference between nodular and superficial cancers as the difference between a potato and the roots of a weed, Gross said. Sqamous cell carcinomas have a rough, sandpapery texture to the skin, according to dermatologist Dr. Judith Crowell whose office is in South Miami. The skin may start to look pink and brown and is no longer smooth. Often times, these skin cancers appear innocuous, resembling a pimple or a blister. They can be detected, however, by their persistence. Although they grow slowly, they grow relentlessly. Some people think theyll go away on their own but they never do, Gross said. As they grow they eat at whatever they get into. Theyll grow a little wider and a little deeper and can even grow down under the skin and go deeper, initially into the fatty layer, then the muscles, the tissue and even the bone. While they are the most common types of cancer, they are the least dangerous, especially if caught early. People dont pay attention to themselves and thats the most important thing, said Clair McElfresh of Palmetto Bay, one of Nouris patients. McElfresh, a heart and kidney transplant patient, encountered his first incidence of skin cancer 18 years ago. Basal cell skin cancers never metastasize, which means they cannot break off and spread into the blood stream causing reoccurrence in other areas of the body. Squamous cell skin cancers, though rare, can metastasize. This makes them a bit more aggressive and dangerous than basal cell cancers. Although creams and surgical procedures successfully eradicate these cancers, nearly half of all patients who have basal or squamous cell skin cancer will have it again within five years of their first incidence, according to Gross. People need to be diligent about the sunscreen and minimize the time theyre in the sun and not be cavalier or playful about it, said skin cancer patient Ken Trachy, 61. Trachy, co-founder and director of special projects at Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency at the University of Miami medical school, recently contracted an aggressive form of squamous skin cancer on his right shoulder. He has been going to Weiss for 15 years. On the other hand, they need to make sure they have a physician they know and trust, Trachy said.Doctors urge diligent use of sunscreenBy Roshan NebhrajaniThe Miami HeraldHEALTH Public Meetings Scheduled by and with the City of Marathon forJuly 2011City Council City Manager GingerSnead, MayorRogerHernstadt Dick Ramsay, Vice MayorCity Attorneys Richard Keating CouncilmemberStearns WeaverMiller Mike Cinque, CouncilmemberWeisslerAlhadeff Pete Worthington, Councilmember& Sitterson, PA CITYOFMARATHONPublished Keynoter 7/16/11Please note that more than one Marathon City Council/Board/Committee membermay participate in the meetings listed.SUBJECT : DA TE: TIME: LOCA TION: Planning Commission Meeting07/18/115:30pmMarathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Hwy.
