She was affiliated with Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate for around two years. Dennis Zecca, 51, is charged with murder for hire for allegedly trying to hire a hit man to kill Bruce Schmitt, a Realtor at whose familys company Mary worked. On Dec. 21, the day Dennis Zecca was arrested, broker Brian Schmitt, Bruces brother, fired Mary. Bruce Schmitt apparently remains out of the country for safety reasons, and Brian declined comment. Reached Thursday, Mary Zecca said, You can talk to my attorney without providing a name before hanging up or offering why she needs an attorney. The U.S. Attorneys Office hasnt said what motive Dennis Zecca or others had to allegedly offer what turned out to be a federal informant $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine to kill Bruce. But the FBI followed the plot through wires worn by the informant, and arrested Zecca after Zecca thought the hit was carried out and was going to get a down payment to pay the hit man.Zecca faces formal arraignment before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow on Jan. 11 beginning at 2 p.m. in the Sidney M. Aronovitz federal courthouse, 301 Simonton St., Key West.Little was known about Zecca before his arrest.The former commanding officer of U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada retired six years ago and was most recently a partner in the ownership group at the Marathon Marina and Boatyard on 11th Street.The Zeccas purchased a house at the Indigo Reef Resort in Marathon on Aug. 28, 2012. According to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office, theMan who allegedly wanted Schmitt dead had heavy debtBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMURDER-FOR-HIRE PLOT New requirements for Cane athletesStudent-athletes should be caring for the community not collecting from it.That is the basic premise of the Upper Keys Foundation, a support group working to free Coral Shores High School athletes from the necessity of raising money to underwrite all Hurricane sports programs.In exchange, student-athletes donate time to help local residents or groups in need above and beyond the community service hours all students need to graduate. We believe we are the first public high school in the country to introduce this type of circular giving, Coral Shores Athletic Director said. In essence, [foundation backers] have allowed us to tutor our kids in service rather than teaching them how to fundraise.Circular giving means that as we get private donations, athletes in all our programs give back service hours, said Coral Shores head football coach Ed Holly, who works as the foundations executive director. Instead of paying or begging for money to play a sport, our athletes serve to play.Tight school budgets limit what can be spent on extracurricular sports, but costs for expenses like equipment, travel and referees keep rising. Without this support, we would be in dire financial straits, Holly said. Literally, wed be out fundraising every other weekend.Hurricane athletes are required to perform service hours, based on the cost to fund their respective sports and the number of players in the program. For example, football players are expected to donate 16 to 20 hours, while players for the less-expensive teams like soccer will volunteer six to eight hours.Coral Shores cheerleaders staged a show for residents at a convalescent center, while football players helped move furniture for Habitat for Humanity.Baseball players served food at an animal-care benefit, and soccer players helped clean up after a Christmas festival.Its very fulfilling and eye-opening, three-sport standout Iris Dunn said in a foundation report. I had never been around a homeless person before and I really hadnt been around many elderly people.

The Key West Chamber of Commerce, along with Keys state Rep. Holly Raschien, are slated to meet Tuesday with DOTofficials to discuss options. Many residents have suggested crews from the contractor, The de Moya Group Inc. of Miami, work overnight to cut down on construction days. Project spokesman Dean Walters said extending hours is up to the contractor. Night work is at the discretion of the contractor, but there has been, and will continue to be night work when intersections have to be crossed, etc., he said. Once we shift to the business side of the road, Im sure there will be a lot more night work because of all the business entrances that have to be crossed.

New room units to be distributedThe Marathon City Council is set to distribute 65 hotel-room allocations Tuesday, a year after the state Cabinet awarded the city 100 transient units for progress made on constructing the citys central sewer system. It appears awarding of the new hotel-room rights will spark the development of two large-scale, name-brand hotels, and the redevelopment of two other properties.Planning Director George Garrett said Key West-based Spottswood Cos. would receive the largest allotment 25 units for its long-awaited 100-room Hyatt at the Faro Blanco property in Old Town.Roger Masters and his partner, Prime Hospitality Group, are slated to receive 19 units for their planned 95room Courtyard by Marriott near mile marker 48. The existing 87-unit Tranquility Bay would receive 16 units, according to Garrett, while the 20-unit Bonefish Bay Motel near Key Colony Beach would be given five. Garrett said there was no ranking system built into the process because we didnt think that was going to be an issue. The main thing was, Did you get a conditional use[permit] and theres obviously conditions in the ordinance about how you use them, he said. Conditional use permits essentially allow the city to grant a specific use for a property even if its generally not allowed through the regular permitting process.The city held several meetings in early 2012 to gather public input on handing out the new hotel-room units. Many suggestions were made, but the most significant condition created was a 4-to-1 ratio, meaning a project could receive only one unit for every four already in hand.Amoratorium in place since 1999 kept the city from allowing new hotel rooms. The only way to secure them was to use existing allocations or to purchase room rights on the open market and transfer them.Masters had 46 in hand and purchased the old Longhorn Lodge property near 125th Street for another 30.Missing out on this round of allocations are Marvin Rappaport, owner of the former Crystal Cove Resort; and Coconut Cay owner Jim Rhyne.Rappaport has plans for a 113-room Marriott Residence Inn on his 7.3-acre lot near mile marker 50.Tuesdays council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.No surprises in who gets what amountBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONDruckemiller case awaits recordsThe defense attorney for Lisa Druckemiller, the former Monroe County Technical Services director accused of stealing and reselling 52 Apple electronics devices, is awaiting depositions and subpoenaed phone records before continuing negotiate a plea arrangement. Heres where we are, her attorney, Robert Cintron, said Friday. We sent out subpoenas to a couple of the telephone cell service carriers, AT&T and Verizon. That is a very cumbersome process. They dont move very quickly. He said hes trying to establish when the iPads and iPhones Druckemiller, 51, is accused of stealing and reselling were activated, and by whom. Overall, shes accused of stealing $23,311 worth of county-owned electronics and selling them for a combined $4,778, mostly to county workers. She retired last February when the scandal emerged. Druckemiller admitted her part in the scheme before a grand jury in July and was booked less than a week later on felony counts of dealing in stolen property and scheme to defraud between $20,000 and $50,000. Cintron also wants to depose County Administrator Roman Gastesi, who admitted paying Druckemiller $899 for three iPhones and one iPad with a combined value of $2,325. The County Commission formally reprimanded him and he agreed to pay the costs of the countys internal investigation into the scandal. Once all thats accomplished, Cintron said of the deposition and acquiring the Verizon and AT&T records, we have the documents and testimony, well be in a position to go before the judge and look for a resolution.The next status hearing in the case is scheduled for Jan. 11 at 9 a.m. before Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West.Verizon,AT&T subpoenaed in theft caseBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSis just there and people arent coming in.Key West Mayor Craig Cates said his brother-in-law, who owns the Conch Town and Liquor Lounge, a combo bar and package store, said the impact to business is pointed.The group of people going home in the evening ... theyll never get that business back, he said. Its the businesses that depend on convenience really feeling it. If you need a tire, youll go to the tire store and everybody has to go to the grocery store, but its those other businesses. When completed, the entire stretch of Key Wests main traffic artery will include a new seawall bordered by a 20-foot-wide landscaped promenade, four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide, a 10-foot center turn lane and a six-foot sidewalk on the business side of the road.DOTis paying $31.8 million of the $41.5 million projects cost. The city of Key West is putting in $4.3 million for a new sewer main and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is adding $5.4 million for a new water line. The goal is a June 2014 completion for a total of 851 total construction days.Businesses hurtingFrom Roosevelt,1A Former Cay Clubs exec owes $361,000Five years after the Cay Clubs collapse, American Express still wants its money from firm founder Dave Clark.That amounts to $361,360.03, plus interest piling up at a rate of 4.75 percent, since Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia signed a final judgment in May 2012.Nothing in the thin file of the contract indebtedness civil lawsuit at the Plantation Key Government Center indicates the defendant, formally identified as Fred Davis Clark, tried to mount a defense.Clark founded Cay Clubs in 2004. By 2005, the firm was collecting waterfront property, restaurants, businesses and existing resorts in the Keys and nationwide for a chain of what it promised would be five-star vacationrental resorts with high-end restaurants and shopping. The company outfitted itself with corporate jets and other trappings of success. Cay Clubs sponsored the 2005 Celebration of the Sea concert in Key Largo headlined by rock legends Chuck Berry and Steven Tyler. The company launched about 10 major projects in the Keys alone, plus developments in Orlando, Clearwater and Las Vegas. Two years later, Cay Clubsoverexpansion and extravagance left it in ruins. The company abandoned several Keys properties, shuttered affiliated businesses and laid off scores of people.Lawsuits followed, including a case brought by more than 20 unit buyers at Sombrero Resort in Marathon. That case, the largest filed in Monroe County, apparently has ground to a halt. AMiami lawyer for the plaintiffs would not comment on the case status Friday.When American Express filed its suit in June 2010, the creditors charged Clark and Cay Clubs International with failing to make payments on a balance of $360,909.05.The Cay Clubs address on the American Express account was listed as an office complex near mile marker 95 on Key Largo, long since turned over to other tenants.Clark eventually was served with a summons at his Orlando home in March 2011, the file shows. By July, attorneys for American Express said Clark failed to respond.In December 2011, the plaintiffs reported, To date, the defendant has failed to answer or otherwise plead in defense to the plaintiffs motion for default. Garcia signed the final judgment in favor American Express five months later.

Zeccas paid $650,000. According to Monroe County Clerk of the Court records, the Zeccas received a $400,000 balloon loan from Robert Leef to help finance the purchase. Leef, part of the Marathon Marina ownership group, could not be reached for comment.Less than two years prior, on Jan. 26, 2010, the Zeccas purchased a house on Duck Key for $630,000. Its reportedly for sale, with Mary Zecca as the listing agent.According to a Wednesday detention order issued by Snow, Dennis Zecca owns four houses and three vehicles, with a combined mortgage and loan debt of $1.8 million.Zecca had been involved in local politics upon his arrival in the Middle Keys. Since May 2010, he and Mary Zecca have donated $5,800 to various campaigns, as well as another $800 from the Marathon Marina. Everyone thought that was natural because he was looking to have the City Council go along with some of the modifications they were making down there, Councilman Dick Ramsay said. That involved turnarounds, road abandonments and buying of the [old Flamingo Inn] to transfer rights in for mobile homes.Ramsay said he unexpectedly heard from Mary Zecca the day of her husbands arrest.I didnt know his wife at all. The first time I heard from her was the day he was arrested and she was concerned with where he was and hadnt heard anything. I dont think she was up on the situation, he said. I always thought [Zecca] was a good guy. He always contributed to things in the community. Former Mayor Pete Worthington had similar sentiments. He was introduced to me as the guy buying the 11th Street marina with some partners, he said. They were going to do all this positive stuff. It was a total shock [from] someone who its been apparent wanted to make some positive changes in Marathon. At Zeccas Dec. 28 bond hearing Snow denied him bond Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin Coats said a search of his house (the one in Indigo Reef) turned up a safe containing four handguns, four rifles, two shotguns, a large quantity of ammunition and $42,600 in cash, Snows detention order says. She wrote the weight of the evidence against the defendant is substantial.Big political donationsFrom Zecca,1A Saturday,January 5,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com 11050 Overseas Hwy.

C OM Boate r mi ss i n g s i n ce Ch r i s tma sNo trace of a missing boater had been found by Friday despite an ongoing search by U.S. Coast Guard units in Florida Keys waters and along shorelines. Mark Myhre, 62, of Bay City, Wis., was sailing alone on his newly purchased boat, the Galilea n off Marathon on Christmas Day, the Coast Guard reported. Aweek later, the sailboat was found grounded on the oceanside shore of Elliot Key in Biscayne National Park, north of Ocean Reef. No one was aboard. The boat still had its dinghy trailing from the stern, and a bicycle used by Myhre for shore excursions was still on the boat. The witness who reported the grounded sailboat told the Coast Guard that the vessel had no visible signs of growth on the lines in the water, and no one was anywhere near the boat. Rescue-boat crews from Coast Guard stations in Marathon and Islamorada have been searching Keys shorelines, along with the Coast Guard cutter K n ig h t Isla n d from the Key West station. Joining the effort are Miami-Dade police and rescue units. Myhre last spoke with his son, Chad, on Christmas Day while the boat was sailing off the Middle Keys. Chad Myhre told WPLGTVthat his father had just purchased the Galilea n in Fort Myers and was sailing to Key West and up the Keys on a solo shakedown cruise. He was sailing around the Keys to get used to the boat, the younger Myhre told reporter Todd Tongen. The retired Mark Myhre ultimately planned to sail the Caribbean and traverse the Panama Canal. The Coast Guard is asking for anyone with information about the missing boater to contact Coast Guard watchstanders in Miami at (305) 415-6800 or local police.Vessel found on shoreline at Elliott KeyON THE WATER A search continued Friday for the missing owner of the Galilean,found grounded on Elliot Key north of Ocean Reef.Mark Myhre of Wisconsin was headed north along the Keys.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org difference in their lives....

Every year, like most years, we visited local businesses and spread our tourist dollars around. Afew days ago, a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy in Marathon took $100 that would have gone to a local business. While stopping for only a minute to run into Publix to pick up a jar of spaghetti sauce, my husband was issued a ticket for parking in the fire lane. However, the car was running and the whole family was in it, waiting for me. The deputys first comment was, This is a rental car, isnt it? And he proceeded to write a ticket. Minutes earlier, he stopped and told another local car to move. Afew days after that while at Publix again, three cars were parked at one end of the fire lane, and the deputys car was sitting at the other side of the Publix entrance, with a clear view of the cars in the fire lane. No tickets were issued to those local cars. What fine treatment of the tourists who contribute to the livelihood of those on this island. Julie Crowley Kokrda Lincoln, Neb.New state representative works with governors staff to save wastewater district big bucksCongratulations to state Rep. Holly Raschein. One of her first challenges as the newly elected representative from District 120 involved the state attorney general, Gov. Rick Scott and a dispute over appointing an interim commissioner to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board. David Asdourian had been a candidate in the November election for an at-large seat on the fivemember board but in October, the board decided to appoint him to fill the seat vacated mid-term by Susan Hammaker. But word had come down from the governors office that an election had to be held to replace Hammaker. The cost of a special election would be nearly $35,000.So late in November, the remaining district board members asked Raschein to get involved and see if she could persuade state officials and avoid that big expense.Raschein, no stranger to the way Tallahassee works (having been the right hand for both state Rep. Ron Saunders and, before him, Rep. Ken Sorensen), set up meetings and brought in the wastewater districts Tallahassee lobbyist as well as the districts general manager, Margaret Blank, and the districts lawyer, Raymond Giglio. They met with the governors chief of staff and as reported in Fridays Upper Keys Reporter after some back and forth, the state backed off the need to hold a special election. She just saved our district $35,000, said Commissioner Norm Higgins. Raschein told Reporter Editor David Goodhue: It was the right thing to do, and now we can move on. Shes holding an open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday at her office in the Damron Building, mile marker 99.1, Key Largo. Stop by and say thanks.Best wishes for Peryam, Ward There was an awards ceremony Thursday held at the Marathon Government Center.

Hell be working with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in 10 North Florida counties. On Tuesday, Peryam and former Sheriff Rick Roth will both attend the swearing-in ceremony for Col. Rick Ramsay, who won election to the four-year post in November. Also leaving the scene next week: State Attorney Dennis Ward, who lost his re-election bid to Catherine Vogel. Both Peryam and Ward were street cops before their careers took them up the ladder or into law. Both were crusty and often funny and both will be missed. We wish them the best of luck in their next assignments.Fix debt with revenue, not health-care cutsTrying to reduce deficits through spending cuts rather than revenue increases can be hazardous to our health. Washington politicians opposed to raising taxes on the wealthy want instead to control our debt by severely squeezing health-care programs like Medicare and Medicaid. If they succeed, its not just the health of the programsclients that will suffer, but the health of our economy and society. I know the health-care system from many angles, having been a social worker for mental-health patients, relying on Social Security disability benefits to manage my own illnesses, and serving on the board of a state health advocacy organization. The system needs improvement, but reducing eligibility, increasing out-of-pocket expenses and diminishing quality as various budget-cutting schemes would do are not the way to go. One plan would move the eligibility age for Medicare, which covers almost one of every five Floridians, from 65 to 67. Since the greatest gift millions of uninsured and underinsured Americans receive on their 65th birthday after years of praying they dont get sick is their Medicare card, moving that moment of profound relief two years into the future is a cruel act. Whats more, its a false economy, as it simply shifts health-care costs from the government onto the backs of families, health centers and hospitals. Another idea would make seniors with slightly higher incomes pay more for their coverage. This contradicts Medicares founding promise of a universal insurance program offering services on an equal basis to all who contributed to it. If premium costs rise too much for wealthier seniors, it will undermine their support of the program, causing some to want to opt out of the system, others to demand service cuts for poorer clients. What was supposed to be a change that only affected the well-todo could wind up endangering the most vulnerable seniors by destroying the program altogether. There are equally destructive plans in the works for Medicaid.Many people dont know that in addition to providing insurance to lowincome families, Medicaid pays for half of all nursing home care, a huge cost most families cant afford on their own. Unlike Medicare, Medicaid is jointly funded by the federal government and the states, many of which are hard-pressed to provide their part of the budget.Now the idea is to make that funding problem worse by reducing the federal contribution. Moreover, national standards of care would be weakened by giving more power to the states to make their own rules. Unfortunately, Florida has not recently inspired confidence in its ability or willingness to act in the best health interests of its citizens. It has made steep cuts to our Medicaid program, blaming the safety net for all of our budget woes instead of strengthening it to support families in times of economic crisis and refused to bring millions of dollars to our state to implement health-care reform. Smart, targeted improvements in government efficiency can certainly be part of a balanced deficit-reduction plan. In fact, in 2011 President Obama and Congress enacted more than $1 trillion in budget cuts over the coming 10 years, and the president has proposed more savings. But any rational appraisal of what caused our deficits to grow and can least painfully reduce them leads to one conclusion: Revenue increases must come first. As someone who struggles every day as an advocate and a patient with the already limited resources of public health care, I know Medicare and Medicaid recipients are not where we should look for sacrifice. Instead, lets ask the nations wealthiest families and most profitable corporations to pay their fair share. In other words, lets take a healthy approach to deficit reduction that keeps our commitment to healthcare systems strong.Marci Yarbrough is a social worker and member of the board of the Jupiterbased Florida Community Health Action Information Network, a statewide consumer health advocacy organization dedicated to improving the health of Floridians by promoting access to affordable, quality health care.GUEST COLUMN YARBROUGHGoogle wants inside yourbusinessGoogle Maps displayed Florida Keys street scenes to the world. Now the giant Internet search engine wants to come inside. Anew Google Maps project offers business owners the opportunity to link to a panoramic indoor 360degree view of their store, restaurant or resort. Its a continuation of the [Google] Street View, going right through to inside the business, said Jim Hilker, an Ithaca, N.Y., photographer who will be working in Key West for three days in mid-February. Hilker is certified by Google as a Trusted Photographer working on the project. Photographers are independent contractors paid by the participating businesses, but exclusively allowed to upload the images onto the Street View section of Google Maps. Viewers can virtually pick out their table at a restaurant or see what beer is on tap, Hilker said. Cost for the photo shoot starts at $375, and goes up depending how much the business owner wants to document. Atypical session using a tripod-mounted camera takes about 30 to 40 minutes, Hilker said. There is no charge for having the photos up indefinitely. Google may solicit for other advertising. The Google Business Photos project that ties into Street View is separate from the earlier Google Local system, where businesses can still post their own photos at no charge. Hilker plans to schedule about 30 photo shoots while taking time out from a Key West vacation Feb. 14 to 16. The process seeks to keep customers out of the photos, he said. If any people do show up, the software automatically blurs faces and license plates, he said. The system was developed using technology created for the Street View scenes on Google Maps. Other Google trusted photographers are in South Florida but it could not be determined at press time if any are based in the Keys.

He said Friday that he believed the law is innocuous until he began receiving public input after it passed. It was everything from theyre a little concerned with some of the issues that [Councilman] Chris Bull brought up, which includes piglets and how often they have them, to outside pigs in pens close to adjoining property lines, he said. Ramsay said he plans to request that the City Council reopen the ordinance for amendments at its Tuesday meeting. I think no one on the council would deny a rehearing. Worst-case scenario, itll be included in the next meeting, he said. Bull raised what he called major concerns at the December meeting that obviously caught fellow council members off guard. The law was approved unanimously at first reading on Nov. 27. When it was first given to me, it was my first month back [on the council] and I was told it was just an administrational thing to allow pigs as pets. I didnt get any calls and it seemed to be a non-issue, Bull said. He said it wasnt until after the law passed first reading that he discovered issues with it. Between first and second reading, I went through the ordinance with a finetoothed comb and found out it has nothing to do with what it says in the agenda statement, he said. It doesnt address living facilities. The way I read it was wide open so people could have a pig-raising business and you could have 500pound pigs. Bulls main contention in December was that the law does not address piglets. He said pigs could have between eight to 12 piglets at a time at least twice a year. Im trying to marry the intent with good legislation that will do what its intended to without any consequences and pig farms all over town that suddenly become legal, Bull said. Ramsay said he received numerous complaints after the final vote in December. He said he agrees with Bull on tightening up the law. Tuesdays council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.

For many passengers, air travel is only about finding the cheapest fare. But as airlines offer a proliferating list of add-on services, from early boarding to premium seating and baggage fees, the ability to comparison shop for the lowest total fare is eroding.Global distribution systems that supply flight and fare data to travel agents and online ticketing services like Orbitz and Expedia accounting for half of all U.S. airline tickets complain that airlines wont provide fee information in a way that lets them make it handy for consumers trying to find the best deal.What other industry can you think of where a person buying a product doesnt know how much its going to cost even after hes done at the checkout counter? said Simon Gros, chairman of the Travel Technology Association, which represents the global distribution services and online travel industries.The harder airlines make it for consumers to compare, the greater opportunity you have to get to higher prices, said Kevin Mitchell, chairman of the Business Travel Coalition, whose members include corporate travel managers.Now the Obama administration is wading into the issue.The U.S. Department of Transportation is considering whether to require airlines to provide fee information to everyone with whom they have agreements to sell their tickets. Adecision, originally scheduled for next month has been postponed to May, as regulators struggle with a deluge of information from airlines opposed to regulating fee information, and from the travel industry and consumer groups that support such a requirement.Airlines fightMeanwhile, Spirit Airlines, Allegiant Air and Southwest Airlines with backing from industry trade associations are asking the Supreme Court to reverse an appeals court ruling forcing them to include taxes in their advertised fares. The appeals court upheld a Transportation Department rule that went in effect nearly a year ago that ended airlinesleeway to advertise a base airfare and show the taxes separately, often in smaller print. Airlines say the regulations violate their freespeech rights. At the heart of the debate is a desire by airlines to move to a new marketing model in which customers dont buy tickets based on price alone. Instead, following the wellworn path of other consumer companies, airlines want to mine personal data about customers in order to sell them tailored services.You like to sit on the aisle and to ski, so how would you like to fly to Aspen with an aisle seat and a movie, no extra baggage charge for your skis, and have a hotel room and a pair of lift tickets waiting for you, all for one price? Technology is changing rapidly. We are going to be part of the change, said Sharon Pinkerton, vice president of Airlines for America, which represents most U.S. carriers. We want to be able to offer our customers a product thats useful to them, thats customized to meet their needs, and we dont think [the Transportation Department] needs to step in.Privacy issueIf airlines have their way, passengers looking for ticket prices may have to reveal a lot more information about themselves, such as their age, marital status, gender, nationality, travel history and whether theyre flying for business or leisure.The International Air Transport Association, whose 240 member airlines cover 84 percent of global airline traffic, adopted standards at a meeting earlier this month in Geneva for such information gathering by airlines as well as by travel agents and ticketing services that would relay the data to airlines and receive customized fares in return. Airlines want, and expect, their [ticket] distribution partners to offer passengers helpful contextual information to make well-informed purchase decisions, reducing the number of reservations made based primarily or exclusively on price, said a study commissioned by the association.Consumer advocates question how airlines would safeguard the personal information they gather, and they worry that comparison shopping for the cheapest airfares will no longer be feasible. Its like going to a supermarket where before you get the price, they ask you to swipe your drivers license that shows them you live in a rich zip code, you drive a BMW, etc., Mitchell said. All this personal information on you is going out to all these carriers with no controls over what they do with it, who sees it and so on.Paying moreThe airline association said consumers who choose not to supply personal information would still be able to see fares and purchase tickets, though consumer advocates said those fares would probably be at the rack rate the travel industrys term for full price, before any discounts. Its up to individual airlines whether they price fares differently for travelers who dont provide personal information, said Perry Flint, a spokesman for the international airline association. The stakes, of course, are enormous. Since 2000, U.S. airlines have lost money for more years than theyve made profits. Fee revenue has made a big difference in their bottom lines. Globally, airlines raked in an estimated $36 billion this year in ancillary revenue, which includes baggage fees and other a la carte services as well as sales of frequent flyer points and commissions on hotel bookings, according to a study by Amadeus, a global distribution service, and the IdeaWorksCompany, a U.S. firm that helps airlines raise ancillary revenue. U.S. airlines reported collecting nearly $3.4 billion in baggage fees alone in 2011. One expense airlines would like to eliminate is the $7 billion a year they pay global distribution systems to supply flight and fare information to travel agents and online booking agents like Expedia.

Bazaar President Candida Andriole described the wares as including artisan foods, fresh produce, arts and crafts, antiques and jewelry. The bazaar will give local artisans and vendors an opportunity to sell their merchandise in a festive atmosphere with a lot of exposure and little overhead, she said.The bazaar will also provide an open-air environment where members of the community can mingle and purchase fresh food and unique items at affordable prices. Last but not least, it will add a new attraction to Key West.The U.S. Navy gave the 33-acre Truman Waterfront, at the end of Southard Street, to the city in 2002. Since then, city officials have worked to develop a large destination park on the property.Last year, the City Commission agreed on a master development plan and hired a firm to undertake design and construction management. The current step is identifying funding sources and breaking ground.Mayor Craig Cates has made that a priority since taking office in 2009. Theres a lot of exciting things happening down at the Truman Waterfront. Ive always said less is more. The more we put there, the more its going to cost to maintain it.Of the bazaar, Cates said it would get people down there to enjoy the park and see the beauty. Thats our goal.The commission will Bazaars proposal when it meets Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.Also at that meeting, the commission, sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, will consider assigning a lease to the old Waterfront Market to a pair of local businessmen hoping to transform the building into a working brewery with a bar, restaurant and music venue. The city owns the land.Restaurateur Chris Schultz (The Porch and 2 Cents) came up with the concept, teamed up with Joe Walsh (Mangoes, Carolines, Jack Flats, Fogartys and Red Fish Blue Fish) and in July gained City Commission approval to go forward with the Caroline Street development.But on Dec. 15, the Key West Bight Management Board, which oversees all leases in the bight area, approved an amendment to the proposed brewery lease, essentially agreeing to front $2 million in construction costs that would be paid back with interest. The lease term is 20 years at a base rate of $397,782 per year, plus a portion of operating revenue once the business opens, for the 18,942-square-foot building.It would be open weekends for 2 monthsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST District takes up permit denialThe Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District is encouraging the owners of 32 North Key Largo homes to voice their objections to being denied for now the right to hook up to central sewers.District Chief Information Officer Paul Christian said those homeowners have been told they should attend the districts board meeting on Tuesday, where district staff will give a presentation about their situation and the federal Coastal Barrier Resources Act.We took bullet points from the letter and did a PowerPoint and thats pretty much the presentation, Christian said. Were trying to encourage the citizens of that are to come to the board meeting and also the [County Commission] meeting in February, he said.Tuesdays sewer-board meeting is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the district office at 98880 Overseas Highway.The district learned just days before construction was set to begin in November that a force main it was set to construct along State Road 905 in North Key Largo would run through a federally protected coastal barrier area.Congress created the Coastal Barrier Resource System in 1982 and updated it in 1990 to protect undeveloped coastal barrier areas. In 2001, the countys land-use plan was amended to create a coastal barrier overlay district.It prohibited the extension and expansion of specific types of public utilities to or through lands designated as a unit of the coastal barrier resources system.When the discrepancy was discovered, county officials informed the district they would not issue permits for homes in coastal barrier areas to connect to central sewers.Many different areas in the Keys are within the Coastal Barrier Resource System, including the North Key Largo properties in question.

Even though its saving the School District money, in approving the downsizing of a contract on the rebuild of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West, he didnt do that, School Board member Ed Davidson said. Under board policy, the board decides changes to contacts and expenditures exceeding $25,000. Below that threshold, the superintendent can act unilaterally without board input but still has to report the change. In the Horace OBryant case, Porter approved a change order for Coastal Construction that would reduce the cost of the $38.6 million rebuild by $608,755 due to a reduction in the scope of the work.Of that, 60 percent of the savings would be on the districts ledger and the rest would be savings to Coastal. Porters rationale was that although the dollar figure exceeds $25,000, the savings didnt prompt board approval.Board members disagreed and called for discussion of the issue at a workshop set for Tuesday beginning at 3 p.m. in Coral Shores High School in Tavernier.Referencing state statute, Davidson said, Each and every change shall be reported by the superintendent to the board and entered into the minutes. And it hasnt been done.Drug costsAlso Tuesday, the School Board will consider approving a $175,000 monthly contract with Envision Pharmaceutical Services Inc. to provide prescription drug coverage for district employees.Acontract with Envision was originally signed Jan. 1, 2010, and has not been put out for competitive bid since.In October, Stuart Kessler, then chairman of the districts oversight Audit and Finance Committee, criticized Porters administration for not seeking a better price.Kessler prophetically told board members: By the time it gets to you, youll have no other reasonable choice. The board should be given a meaningful opportunity to make this decision. That never happened and the contract expired on Dec. 31, leaving board members no choice. Its now automatically renewed until Dec. 31 of this year.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

Hurricane Bahn heads to CanisiusAsuccessful tryout earned Ryan Bahn, a four-year lacrosse letterman at Coral Shores High School, a varsity roster spot for Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y.Bahn become the first Coral Shores boys player to join an NCAADivision 1 lacrosse program, said Barney Rich, the Hurricanesboys head coach.Canisius Colleges Golden Griffins (6-8) won their second Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship in May and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.Bahn is listed as a long-stick midfielder, a position he played at Coral Shores. As a walk-on, he could be listed as a redshirt freshman during the 2013 campaign, Hurricanes coaches noted. Bahn is a tireless worker, a person of character, Golden Griffins head coach Randy Mearns said in a statement. Hes got that special something called drive and work ethic. Mearns also serves as head coach of the Canadian National Lacrosse Team.I wasnt surprised that [Bahn] made the team, Rich said. Hes a great player who dedicated himself this off-season in the weight room and on the wall to playing at that level. Im most impressed with his success in the classroom since Canisius is a very demanding academic environment.Bahn lettered in his four Coral Shores lacrosse seasons and was named to South Floridas all-district team twice as a defender. He also played football. Several Lady Cane lacrosse players have advanced to Division 1 college teams, but Bahn apparently is the first male. Other Coral Shores boys have played at the major-college level while their lacrosse programs were competing as clubs.Keynoter Staff BAHN KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,January 5,2013 AIR CONDITIONING MARATHON A/C & APPLIANCESSales & Service Fast Reliable Service Lic # CAC017490 (305) 743-5051 ARTIC-TEMPResidential Commercial Marine Sales Repair Refrigeration Ice Machines Lic # CAC 053827. 743-5288 Danas Air ConditioningCommercial & Residential Ice Machines Pool Heaters Service Agreements Lic # CAC 056642 (305) 289-9498 www.danasairconditioning.com Windswept A/C & Appl.Shut Your Windows,Shut Your Doors You Ain't Gonna Be Hot No More!

They are chock full of sails right now. Anglers are picking away at the sailfish everywhere else. But to make up for the lack of spindlebeaks, there are plenty of blackfin tuna to be had, along with the occasional dolphin. The snapper bite is excellent on the reef, with loads of yellowtail coming back to the docks on a regular basis. Mangroves are thick on the patches, and muttons are coming off the reef as well as the wrecks. The kingfish have arrived for their winter vacation and are heavy on the reef. Most are in the 10to 15-pound class. Along with them are plenty of cero mackerel as well as some Spanish macks. Out in the bay, the mangrove bite is strong, with the best action taking place in the eightto 10-foot depths. Located in the same zone are heaps of Spanish mackerel. Further out in the Gulf, there are good numbers of cobia, king and Spanish mackerel along with jacks and bluefish.Keep in mind, grouper season is now closed until May 1, so I hope you got that last 2012 red, black or gag on Monday.The weeks bestLong-time clients Brian and Kate Fredrick of Baltimore had a few nice days of fishing with Capt. Greg Poland out of Islamorada. They caught mackerel, cobia, barracuda and sharks while fishing in 12 to 15 feet of water in the bay off Long Key. Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon, had a busy holiday week fishing with families from across the country and targeting the great snapper bite on the reef. One of his standout trips was with Ted and his five friends from Tennessee who needed their cooler filled and did it with their limit of 60 yellowtails from 15 to 19 inches.Colorado residents Fred and Michele Eichler, hosts of the TVshows Predator Nation and Easton Bowhunting, and their sons enjoyed catching flag yellowtail and black grouper that were released.Capt. Bob Kidwell and mate Neil Apley had several trips on both the Pips 36 and Papa Pips out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon.The Vigue family, from Manchester, N.H., brought back yellowtails, two big jacks and raised three sailfish. The Kleiman group from Merrick, N.Y., caught yellowtails and mangroves, and the Smith family, from Honeoye Falls, N.Y., also caught a boatload of yellowtails.The SeaSquared crew, now docked at Captain Pips, spent the week entertaining families on the reef, at the Seven Mile Bridge and in the bay. Limits of yellowtail and mangrove snapper along with tons of Spanish mackerel and a couple of bonus cobia and grouper were hauled in by groups from across the United States and even Canada.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, reports fishing in the backcountry is productive for large cobia, with big lane snappers and jacks mixed in. In Hawk Channel, the sharks and snappers are eating cut bait with plenty of chum. King and Spanish mackerel, bonitos and yellowtails are coming off the reef.Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/ bay, reef/wreck, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway Marathon.

WPBT2, South Floridas public television station, marks the 30th anniversary of the election of Americas first openly gay mayor with the broadcast premiere of The Newcomer on Jan. 14 at 9 p.m. The Newcomer is a documentary that focuses on the life and career of Richard Heyman, who was elected Americas first openly gay mayor in Key West.Directed by Emmy Awardwinning journalist John Mikytuck, The Newcomer tells the story about a forgotten gay icon and the tragic circumstances that arrested the political and social progress he made for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in the 1980s.While the culture wars inflamed by Anita Bryant and the religious right had a powerful impact on the march toward gay civil rights in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the AIDS epidemic was ultimately much more destructive to the movement. The film focuses attention on that tragedy through the story of Heyman.The Newcomer includes interviews with such longtime Keys notables as Peter Ilchuk, June Keith, John Kiraly, Joan Higgs and Mark Whiteside.An ongoing drive to reward three dozen members of Key Largo Schools Safety Patrol with a trip to Washington, D.C., hits high gear with a Feb. 1 fish-fry dinner as a major fundraiser. The fish feast at the school cafeteria is open from 5 to 7 p.m. to serve more than 1,000 dinners, said organizer Debbie Williams. More than 500 pounds of fish, along with other supplies, have been donated. Winn-Dixie of Key Largo contributed $600 for the event. Safety Patrol members perform jobs around the school such as flag duty and escorting younger grades to the buses, Williams said.Safety Patrol members, all in fifth grade, have been working through the school year to raise money for the trip by selling gift items and candles, and holding school dances and a jog-athon. Remaining events include the fish fry and an auction March 2.It costs about $1,200 per student to make the Washington trip, which includes visits to the Smithsonian, the U.S. Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery and more. Patrol members must maintain a good grade-point average and behavior record to get to go. The trips to Washington have been a Key Largo School tradition for more than 35 years. My son has worked hard keeping his grades up at KLS so that he could go one day, Williams said.Students took part in a recent poster contest that created signs promoting the event now seen around the Upper Keys.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,January 5,2013 Cruise plays Jack Reacher to the hiltJack Reacher. Rated PG-13, 130 min., now playing nationwide. Jack Reacher is based on the books by Lee Child and fans of the books were apprehensively waiting to see if Tom Cruise, star and co-producer of the film, could pull off the role. In the books, Reacher is a 6, 220 lb. ex-military cop. Cruise is 5 (being generous), 170 lbs. (soaking wet). Surprisingly, if viewers can forget all Cruises personal baggage and let him inhabit the role, theyll find that he does an adequate job and is believable. There are only a few physical scenes where Cruises stature comes into play and he holds his own. Overall, Cruise is credible as the mysterious, rough-andready Reacher.The story begins with an open-and-shut case against an ex-military sniper who killed five random people but, when caught, his only communication is a scrawled note asking for Jack Reacher. Theres also a heart-ofgold defense attorney, whose father happens to be the D.A.; a group of thugs who kill with impunity, and a secretive criminal enterprise that seems willing to go to any lengths to seize control of a local building contractors company. Herzog steals every scene as evil ZecWith New Years festivities now behind us, its time to gear up for an ambitious food and wine pairing organized by restaurant owners in Key Largo and Islamorada. From Jan. 10 through 19, dozens of venues will participate in what will be an expanded version of the former Key Largo Food & Wine Festival, which was held in late July and early August. Designed to fill in business during the so-called soft summer season, gourmet meals and wine tastings gave summer visitors a little something different to do. Well, Jan. 10 to 19 is prime time, and the organizers hope the culinary extravaganza will firmly put the Upper Keys on the food festival map. It even has a new name: Uncorked. The range of culinary creations and venues expands the palette, ranging from an Aussie beach party at Hampton Inns Outback Steakhouse in Islamorada to the ever-popular Sauce Boss and a Night in New Orleans at Sundowners Restaurant in Key Largo. There are plans for more than 30 events, including premiere of a Keys version of the popular television cooking show Chopped. If you havent seen it, worried chefs compete under time constraints and some odd food pairings intended to challenge their creativity. The festivals kickoff will be held at the Green Turtle Wine and Spirits Shop, a fairly new addition to the popular Islamorada eatery at mile marker 81.2 oceanside. The happy-hour event will be followed by tropical Keys cuisine with wine pairings at the Island Grill, mile marker 85.5. New to the revamped and expanded festival will be a Dine Around Town progressive dinner. Diners travel to five Islamorada restaurants for a five-course gourmet dinner as each chef showcases his or her talent in turn. ACaribbean-night aboard the 78-foot Island Time, a paddlewheel riverboat, is slated from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Jan.11. There will be live music with Jimmy Ray, a conch shell blowing contest and lots of tropical hors doeuvres. On Jan. 13, two venues will serve up special brunch menus, the Key Largo Conch House, mile marker 100 oceanside, and Snappers Waterfront Restaurant, mile marker 94.5 oceanside. The grand-tasting finale is set for Jan. 19 from noon to 5 p.m. at Islamoradas Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina at Holiday Isle, mile marker 84 oceanside. Chefs from area restaurants will prepare signature dishes to sample, complemented by a selection of wines. Live music, cooking demonstrations and tips from master mixologists are planned along with the good eats. General admission tickets for the finale are $57 plus tax. VIPtickets, which allow early entry at 11 a.m., cost $77 plus tax and include a souvenir T-shirt, tasting glass and gift bag with cookbook.For a complete schedule of events, visit www.florida keysuncorked.com No Name Race5K Walk/RunSaturday,January 12,2013 8 am at the Old Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp on Big Pine Key,FloridaSponsored by the Domestic Abuse Shelter Coordinated by Key West Southernmost RunnersFor a registration form go to: www.nonamerace.org or www.southernmostrunners.com Call the Domestic Abuse Shelter for more information at (305) 743-5452Proceeds support the Domestic Abuse Shelter 13th Annual Food Festival moves into high gear nowKey Largo and Islamorada join in big food bashUPPER KEYS LAttitudes Staff Upper Keys chefs will pull out all the stops for Uncorked,a food and wine event being held Jan.10-19 at select restaurants in Key Largo and Islamorada.

Saturday,January 5,2013 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com Director Christopher McQuarries influence is apparent because this shadowy criminal organization seems to be a corporate version of Keyser Sze, the villain from The Usual Suspects, which McQuarrie wrote. The film stars Cruise, Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice, Surrogates), Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo and Werner Herzog. Pike plays defense attorney Helen Rodin; Jenkins is the D.A., who happens to be Helens father; Oyelowo is the police detective, and Herzog is the mysterious Zec. Apleasant surprise is the short but humorous appearance of Robert Duvall as a feisty old gun range owner.Pikes Helen seems a tad nave but she does an admirable job of looking skeptical and frightened as the snipers attorney. Richard Jenkins, who seemed to appear in every other film in the past year, is excellent as the D.A., who might or might not be one of the evildoers. However, David Oyelowo is totally ineffective as the cop, playing him with Keanu Reeveslike woodenness that makes the character little more than a cardboard cutout. The part could have been so much more interesting with an actor like Samuel L. Jackson or Danny Glover in the role. But Werner Herzog is a treat as the evil, one-eyed Zec, and he plays the part with gusto, exuding menace and stealing every scene in which he appears. After the creepy scene when Zec first appears out of the shadows, viewers may never take their fingers for granted again. And look for author Lee Child, making a cameo appearance as the police desk sergeant who hands Reacher his belongings when he gets out of jail.Written and effectively directed by McQuarrie, Jack Reacher aspires for a film noir feel, but its reach sometimes exceeds its grasp. And, there are a few scenes that just dont work. Some of the early dialog might have sounded like clever repartee on paper but, when actually spoken, sounds contrived and forced. And there is one farcical fight scene right out of a Three Stooges movie involving Reacher, two bad guys and a bathtub that effectively stops the story. One other critique: The construction business takeover that drives the plot is never really satisfactorily explained.Despite those weaknesses, I enjoyed the film and, even though he recently turned 50, I could accept Tom Cruise as Reacher. So, if you enjoy action movies, like Tom Cruise or are simply curious to see if he can still carry a thriller, go see it. The film is entertaining and, with sales approaching the $100 million mark, Jack Reacher may be the start of a new action-hero franchise for Cruise. But Cruise better hurry, rumor has it that Stallone may try to sign him for the next geriatric edition of The Expendables.Some dialogue forcedFrom Film,4B January 19th11AM to 8PM Rain or ShineBayview Park,Key West FREEADMISSION ENTER T AINMENT Emcee:Captain Marlin Scott11am 12pm:Bahama Village Music Program12pm 2pm:KeyRazy 2pm 5pm:Sauce Boss 5pm 8pm:The Rejects 8th AnnualEXHIBITS Marine Exhibits Arts & Crafts Kids Fun Zone Local Non-ProfitsFOOD MENU Fried Fish Grilled Lobster Stone Crab Key West Pink Shrimp Smoked Fish Dip Conch Fritters Conch Salad Conch Chowder Flan and Key Lime Pie Beer,Wine,Soda and Water ASpecial Thanks to our Sponsors:Elite Sky Seafood Atlantic & Gulf Fishing Supply Fanci Seafood Island T-shirt Graphics Key Largo Fisheries Gulf Manufacturing Key West Engine Service Hak Hide LLC Dolphin Hydraulics Suburban Propane Ryan Construction Services Key West Marine Hardware E.M.C.

Called Derrys Songbird of Peace, Malloy traveled with the Peace People delegation to accept the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976. The rallies that ended with a huge finale at Trafalgar Square in London, drew a crowd in excess of 200,000 and Malloy was on stage with folk legend Joan Baez. It is a part of my life that I feel someone else must have lived, Malloy says today. Shell make two appearances in Key West, the first an 8-11 p.m. gig at Finnegans Wake on Jan. 11. Then, the Waterfront Playhouse hosts Malloy and special guest Bobby Nesbitt in a Jan. 16 concert titled All Kinds of Everything. Malloy says its the title of a song written by Lindsay/Smith and arranged by Phil Coulter, all from her hometown of Derry. That song won the Eurovision Song contest in 1970, a first time for Ireland, she recounts. The night that Dana returned to Derry after the Eurovision win, the entire city and surrounding counties turned out to welcome her home. The Guildhall Square was crammed with well-wishers, and the ugliness of what was to become known as...the troubles ...was pushed aside to honor her amazing achievement.It was a night of pride and joyful celebration, where I, a young girl of 13 dreamed of being a singer too.Tickets cost $50 and include an after-performance cast part in the Sculpture Garden.

Aboard a Coast Guard cutter on his first deployment, the New Jersey native began writing what became his first published novel, Slipping the Cable. Key West plays a role as the setting for part of the action in this tale, which follows a junior officer aboard the cutter Sentinel and his adventures. Aclash with a senior officer leads to an escape to Key West, but paradise quickly becomes a dead end the publisher notes reveal. Being at sea was incredible, except when conditions made me wish I was somewhere else, the author says. Thats how Slipping The Cable was born -during those times I wished to be somewhere else. Schweigart now works for the Department of Homeland Securitys Office of Infrastructure Protection, living in Alexandria, Va. and with a bit more time to write.
