The high court ruled 7-2 for Fane Lozman, who argued that the gray, twostory craft about 60 feet long that he towed to the marina in Riviera Beach in Palm Beach County should not have been affected by maritime law. Justice Stephen Breyer, who included a picture of Lozmans craft in the opinion, said maritime law affects vessels that are watercraft or other artificial contrivance used, or capable of being used, as a means of transportation on water. The key words, Breyer said, were capable of being used and the court was concerned with practical possibilities, not merely theoretical.We believe that a reasonable observer, looking to the homes physical characteristics and activities, would not consider it to be designed to any practical degree for carrying people or things on water, Breyer said. And we consequently conclude that the floating home is not a vessel.Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Anthony Kennedy dissented, with Sotomayor saying Breyers opinion createsHigh court rules 7-2 in favor of liveaboard on the mainlandBy JESSE J.HOLLANDAssociated PressU.S.SUPREME COURT Judge sets Zecca trial forFeb. 25The U.S. Attorneys Office is moving quickly in the prosecution of Marathon resident Dennis Zecca, coowner of a marina and a former U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada commander federally charged with murder for hire, conspiracy to possess and attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon.U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez, who has taken over the case from Magistrate Lurana Snow, signed an order Thursday setting a Feb. 25 trial date, with a Feb. 21 calendar call pretrial hearing.Zeccas Dec. 21 arrest for unsuccessfully attempting to pay $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine for the murder of Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt sent shockwaves through the Keys. The person he allegedly recruited for the hit an employee of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard, which Zecca coowns turned out to be a federal informant.Its unclear whether Zeccas attorney, Miami-based William Aaron, will request more time to prepare for trial or if Zecca is considering a plea agreement. Aaron hasnt returned repeated messages for comment since Zeccas arrest.On Jan. 10, a federal grand jury handed down the fourcount indictment against Zecca. The gun count stems from Zecca giving the informant a convicted felon a 9mm Beretta to carry out Schmitts killing.The cocaine counts stem from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation out of which the alleged murder-for-hire plot was hatched. Federal authorities have said Schmitt was not involved in the drug case but havent said what motive Zecca would have to kill him.However, in open court, prosecutor Benjamin Coats said that for the murder for hire, Zecca had associates and co-conspirators in this offense who havent yet been identified. Zecca pleaded not guilty on Jan. 14 and is being held without bond.Thursday, Martinez issued an order to counsel for each side requiring them to file speedy-trial reports every 20Attorney also added to case for forfeitureBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTSalary cuts again up for talksFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Board commissioners Jack Bridges and Phil Goodman are making quadruple sure the issue of board memberssalaries is addressed at next weeks board meeting in Key West. Wednesdays agenda has four separate salary-related items, three of which are related to a 10 percent pay cut that most board members believed they took in October. In reality, they never approved it. I kind of believe this is something that should be done. I dont want to make this an elitist board where you discourage people from wanting to run for it, Goodman said. What I would propose is to every year knock this thing down 10 percent until it gets reasonable for the time spent. Commissioners earn $21,438 per year, while the chairman and secretarytreasurer each earn $22,038. That doesnt include fully funded health benefits. The first salary-related item is to simply reduce the salary of commissioners by 10 percent. Goodman and Bridges are sponsoring it. Then there are individual items calling for the same 10 percent reduction, but withThis time, 4 versions consideredBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLIssues remain for planned shopping centerAcluster of questions and concerns raised by Monroe County commissioners about a planned enormous Rockland Key shopping center might not cause serious delays, says a project consultant.With such a big project, there are going to be a lot of questions, Owen Trepanier, a land-use consultant representing site owner Steven Henson and developer David Garfunkel, said Friday. Going back and forth is part of the process.... Were working really fast on this property.During a two-hour hearing Wednesday in Key West, commissioners voiced worries about how the center near mile marker 9 could affect traffic, mass transit, neighboring landowners and demand for affordable housing.Youre fixing to create something with jobs that clearly will demand housing, Mayor George Neugent said.Somebody is going to have to pay for these things, Neugent said. Its unfair to ask county residents to pick up the tab for a development thats going to generate a lot of money for someone.Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said she doubts the center would result in predicted marvelous benefits like jobs and sales tax revenue.We are not going to have more tourists because of thisMore traffic, building size unresolvedROCKLAND KEYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comSee Mosquito,2ASee Rockland,2ASee Zecca,2ASee Homes,2A
days hereafter until the time of trial or plea. U.S. Attorneys Office spokeswoman Alicia Valle said its not unusual to have a trial date set so quickly after an arraignment.This is standard practice in all cases. It is required by law, she said. According to the order, the trial would take place during the two-week period beginning Monday, Feb. 25. Snow handing the case over to Martinez also isnt unusual. Judge Snow is the magistrate judge who, among other duties, handles Key West matters up to and including arraignment. Judge Martinez is the district judge to whom this case was assigned after indictment in accordance with the ordinary district court assignment process, Valle said. The pretrial hearing is scheduled for 1:45 p.m. Feb. 21 in Miami, while the trial is slated for Feb. 25 at the Sidney M. Aronovitz federal courthouse at 301 Simonton St., Key West. Also Thursday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy Abraham was added to the case to seek forfeiture of two guns and a Toyota Tundra allegedly used in the crimes.Schmitt was supposed to be killed as he left a Marathon Christmas party. On Dec. 21, the informant showed Zecca a doctored photo of Schmitt lying in a pool of blood as proof he did the killing. Zecca was then arrested when he told the informant he was going to get $5,000 of the $20,000 payment.Asearch of Zeccas Indigo Reef condo in Marathon turned up a safe containing four handguns, four rifles, two shotguns, a large quantity of ammunition and $42,600 in cash.Trial is scheduledFrom Zecca,1A a new and unnecessary test. An objective assessment of a watercrafts purpose or function governs whether that structure is a vessel, she said. The court, however, creates a novel and unnecessary reasonable observer reformulation of these principles and errs in its determination, under this new standard, that the craft before us is not a vessel. Lozman cheered the decision. It leaves you speechless, he said. Its been a long fight.Lozman bought the 60foot-by-12-foot floating home with French doors, a sitting room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and office space in 2002. In 2006, he had it towed to a marina in Riviera Beach, where he kept it docked.After several disputes with the city, and unsuccessful attempts to evict him, city officials used U.S. maritime law to impose a lien on Lozmans property for dockage fees and damages for trespass. Lozman argued that it was a house, which would have given it some protection from seizure under state law. But federal judges sided with the city, and the property was seized and destroyed.The city, however, was forced to post a $25,000 bond, which Lozman now says he will pursue in district court to reimburse him for the cost of his property including the furniture and personal possessions that were destroyed after the impoundment of his property.The lower courts were too broad in their descriptions of vessels, Breyer said.Not every floating structure is a vessel, Breyer said. To state the obvious, a wooden washtub, a plastic dishpan, a swimming platform on pontoons, a large fishing net, a door taken off its hinges or Pinocchio (when inside the whale) are not vessels, even if they are artificial contrivance(s)capable of floating, moving under tow and incidentally carrying even a fair-sized item or two when they do so.Astructure would not fall under the definition of vessel unless a reasonable observer, looking to the homes physical characteristics and activities, would consider it designed to a practical degree for carrying people or things over water, he said.More than 5,000 Americans own floating homes, and there are more than 60 floating casinos in the United States.Man beats city hallFrom Homes,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,January 19,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.7766 SUN.7867 MON.7665 TUES.7166 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers.

WE HAVE THE SOLUTIONS FOR ALL YOUR OUTDOOR LIGHTING NEEDS different dates of enactment. Bridgesversion calls for a retroactive cut to Oct. 1, when he says commissioners believed they approved it. Goodmans version calls for a Jan. 1 effective date, mainly to avoid confusion with retired 20-year commissioner Joan LordPapy. He didnt want the district to have to recover a small amount of money from her final paycheck as a commissioner. Since we have a new board in there, I thought that might get real complicated, so thats why I said Jan. 1, Goodman said. Bridges said he would go along with that proposal if the board chooses.It was Lord-Papy who brought the issue to a head when she attempted to rescind the pay cut at her final meeting in December. She removed the request when it was discovered the cut never happened.Lord-Papy then refused, along with commissioners Bill Shaw and Steve Smith, to consider Goodmans request to discuss the pay cut.Republican Jill Cranney-Gage won LordPapys seat in November and will be sworn in Wednesday. The obvious swing vote did not return calls for comment Friday and earlier this month. Afinal salary-related item Wednesday is Bridgesrequest to allow commissioners to voluntarily adjust their own pay provided its not higher than the highest paid board member. He was not allowed to add it to the December agenda.I will at least take mine down to Oct. 1 if the thing goes through that passes it [retroactive] to Jan. 1. I will probably reduce it more over time, he said. Wednesdays meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the district office on College Road in Key West.Board salaries return to foreFrom Mosquito,1A shopping center, Murphy said. Everything purchased there will not be purchased in other stores between Key West and Duck Key. The hearing, the first of two scheduled for an overlay zoning district covering the 33-acre site, ended without a vote. The second hearing is scheduled for March 20 in Marathon. Commissioners asked county Growth Management staff to return at the commissions Feb. 20 meeting in Key Largo to discuss a proposal that would allow awarding of unused commercial space permit allocations to new applicants. As it stands, the Rockland Key center apparently requires virtually all of the non-residential permit allocations built up in the years since the real-estate crash. County staff recommends limiting the centers buildable space to 300,000 square feet, not including parking.Center developers and the county Planning Commission in late November seemed to agree on 400,000 feet, down from an originally requested 500,000.This week, Trepanier said the developers will downsize the largest building proposed for the site from 240,000 square feet to 175,000. The main building would hold an anchor tenant like Walmart or Target, plus one or more smaller stores.Planning staff advises a cap on the largest building at 125,000 square feet, while the Planning Commission said a single large store needing 140,000 square feet would be fine.Trepanier said the developer has newly pledged to fund construction of a 200-seat community meeting room with kitchen and bathrooms in the shopping center. Previously, the developer offered to provide space but wanted the construction cost to be deducted from impact fees.Michael Halpern, whose family has a six-acre site on Rockland Key, said any large-scale zoning change and building approval should consider other Rockland owners.If you get legal challenges from the people excluded, it will be years before you see a big-box store, said Halpern, a Key West lawyer. Commissioner Heather Carruthers said creating an islandwide plan for Rockland Key is smart planning even if it means waiting a year.Several issues outstandingFrom Rockland,1AHealth care costs again go to boardFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Board Commissioner Phil Goodman says its time district employees begin helping to fund their healthcare plans.We just cant burden the taxpayers to fund 100 percent of this going forward. Its a great benefit but its time they share in part of the cost, like most businesses do. Everyone should share in the cost, he said. Goodman proposed last month that all employees, including commissioners and retirees, contribute $50 monthly toward their benefit package. But much like his request to discuss a 10 percent pay cut for commissioners, it received little traction. Goodman has argued time and again that almost all private-sector employees contribute toward the cost of their health-care plan. Mosquito Control employees are covered 100 percent by the district. This month, Goodman is reducing his ask to $25 per month for each employee and leaving out retired workers. The item is included on Wednesdays board meeting agenda. Years ago, even in private business they paid for most or all of it. But costs started skyrocketing, he said, noting governments are beginning to charge employees now. Its starting in the government sector, and its time for Mosquito Control to do that, he said. Chairman Jack Bridges said he would support Goodmans measure. Twenty-five dollars per month is not too much to pay for your insurance, he said. Commissioners Steve Smith and Bill Shaw voiced concern about the employee contribution. They said employees already pay higher deductibles in order to secure lower insurance costs.According to District Comptroller William Southcott, the district is self-insured and budgeted the same $1.5 million for expected healthcare costs in fiscal year 201213 as the previous year.Southcott said there was a 6.2 percent increase in cost, but there are fewer employees now than in 2011-12.

City Hall tops priority listAnew City Hall and moving the Monroe County Sheriffs Office satellite jail away from the Marathon Community Park dominated conversation Thursday at a special City Council meeting about future infrastructure projects. After convincing several residents the city has no intention of building an Old Town fire station as some had thought, the council quickly whittled a 156-item list down to one: City Hall. About 35 people attended and heard Mayor Mike Cinque say what the main focus of Thursdays meeting was meant to be. Ninety-nine percent of this list is never going to see the light of day. We called this meeting to look at a City Hall and a Public Works building, he said. Several residents voiced support for the Public Works building, which would be used to house equipment exposed to the elements, but it didnt gain much traction from council members who appeared set to concentrate on City Hall.Im looking at this from the standpoint of hope for Marathon. I see us growing, Vice Mayor Rich Keating said.Keating was referring to a group of trailers housing staff at the city-owned events field between 98th and 99th streets along U.S. 1. Council members stressed the importance of building a City Hall of which the city could be proud, but several times mentioned a Taj Mahal is unnecessary. The council appeared to agree the $5.5 million figure on Thursdays list is much too high. Councilman Dick Ramsay pointed out residents have been burdened financially by new fees, lateral connections and subsequent water-bill hikes because of the citys new central sewer system. I want to make sure we can afford this without raising taxes. If the answer isnt yes, I want to go back to the folks and set up a series of workshops so we can have some input, he said. We need it; I want to make sure we can afford it.Councilman Chris Bull brought up the idea of moving the jail away from where it sits, immediately adjacent to the Community Park. Cinque said hes spoken with Sheriff Rick Ramsay about the idea.Ramsay attended Thursdays meeting and said hes open to moving the jail, but not at the Sheriffs Offices expense.We built that jail a long time ago in the area we thought would have the least impact, he said, noting the jail was there long before the park.Were not opposed to moving the jail. The question is two part: Where are we going to put it? Next problem is who pays for it? Itd either be the [County Commission] approves it or the city pays or some grant money, Ramsay said.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com.Also discussed: Moving jail to Crawl KeyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARTHONPlans being finalized forCabanas servicePlans are pending for a memorial service for Freddy Cabanas, the Key West stunt pilot who died in a plane crash Tuesday in Mexico. Cabanas, who had entertained hundreds of thousands of people around the world with his daredevil aerobatics at air shows, was killed when the plane he was piloting not his went down in a private airfield on the southern island of Cozumel in the state of Quintana Roo, a major international tourist destination. He was 60. His body was returned to Key West Thursday. Passenger Jorge Lopez Vives, host of a Mexico extreme-sports program, also died in the crash. They were filming a documentary to promote an air show but unfortunately had an accident, Erosa Rudy, director of Civil Protection of Cozumel, told www.ElComercio.com. Emergency crews [recovered] the bodies. Cabanas, a fourth-generation Key West native, fell in love with flying as a boy and by 16 was a hangar bum at Key West International Airport, where he traded washing planes for flying lessons. Cabanas recalled his first snap roll in 2010 before the Southernmost Air Spectacular at Naval Air Station Key West. You pull back on the stick and kick the rudder in the direction you want to go. Then you go around real, real fast ... 360 degrees in one second. In 2010, he cut the ribbon to open the Navys air show in pure Cabanas style at 150 mph, five feet from the ground with the propeller of his Pitts Special S-2C. Why fly straight when you can do the fun stuff like this? Cabanas asked before the crowd-thrilling stunt. It is the most dangerous part of the show, but I love to make people smile. In 1991, he was teaching a student to fly when he spotted a MiG 23 ground attack plane flying over the island city with a defecting Cuban military general at the controls. Cabanas said he alerted authorities. The Key West mayor proclaimed him general of the fictitious Conch Republic Air Force.His friend Peter Anderson said Cabanas was old school like few others. Acharacters character, Freddy was the real deal in every way.Freddy always thought he would die flying. Who would know better? And so he did. He is lost to us. Gone doing what he loved. Freddy, we will always love you.He owned Cabanas Aeronautics Unlimited, which offers aerial tours of the Keys and, for those who dare, thrill rides. Aerobatics pilot Gary Ward has called Cabanas a good stick, which means a pilot who can fly almost any kind of plane well.Cabanas passed on his love of flying to his children, daughter Lt. Kelly Gander, a Navy pilot, and son Raymond Cabanas, who helped his dad fly two planes to Haiti to deliver supplies for orphans after the 2010 earthquake.Cabanas also is survived by his longtime wife, Susan.

Whither the Chart Room?The future of a Key West landmark within a landmark the storied Chart Room bar inside the Pier House Resort and Caribbean Spa has been called into question with the announcement last week that the 142-room property at 1 Duval St. is for sale.The Chart Room has been synonymous with the Pier House since Key West luminary David Wolkowsky opened the bayside complex in 1968. But with a change in ownership, loyal bar patrons wonder if the decidedly antiresort watering hole will survive a transition. In fact, when the property was announced for sale last week, by the time the doors opened at 4:30 p.m., the chalkboard behind the bar already read Pray for the Chart Room. This is the kind of bar with patrons so loyal that a handful, including famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher, have a portion of their cremated remains sealed up in holes drilled into the bar rail and marked with a small brass name plate. The walls are covered in patronsphotos, including some of Jimmy Buffett. From the trop rockers website: In November 1971, when Jimmy was brought for the first time to Key West by Jerry Jeff Walker and Teresa MurphyClark, the trios first stop in town was the Chart Room. The bartender on duty was Tom Corcoran, a friend of Jerry Jeff and today an author.... Tom gave Jimmy his first beer on the house as a welcome to the island. Buffet began his tropical career playing for drinks in the Chart Room for treasure divers, pot smugglers, beachcombers, politicians and friends. In his book Mile Marker Zero, writer/editor William McKeen writes, Here was this funky little bar ... and it was right in the middle of a fancy-ass tourist resort. Tourists stumbling by might look in at some of Americas finest writers and artists, as if preserved under glass. McKeen was referring to, among others, novelists and regulars Jim Harrison, Tom McGuane and Guy de la Valdene, and their friend, landscape artist Russell Chatham. Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote were also known to hold court on the same bar stools. Friday, Corcoran dispelled the myth that the bar predates the hotel and that peanuts and popcorn were a fixture from the beginning that came later. He tended bar there from 1970 to 1972, then again for six months in 1974 and 1975. Once established, It was like an instant institution. It was a crossroads, like a new Times Square. If you hadnt been the Chart Room in the 1970s, you hadnt been to America.

Board denies enclosure varianceDespite an appeal from a longtime Big Coppitt Key homeowner, an illegal downstairs apartment must go, Monroe County commissioners voted Wednesday. With little board discussion, commissioners rejected Beth Kuhnkes exceptional hardship appeal to keep the unpermitted ground-floor living space at her Aquamarine Drive home. We all know all too well what the ramifications could and will be, said Mayor George Neugent, alluding to a 2011 letter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which oversees the National Flood Insurance Program. After the county in 2010 granted its first hardship exemption for a downstairs enclosure below the base flood elevation in 23 years, FEMAwarned that similar approvals for downstairs living space could cause all of Monroe County to lose its flood insurance. We have a county of 75,000 people and we cannot subject them to the loss of flood insurance for their property, county Building Official Jerry Smith told a member of the Kuhnke family. Its not something we do on a whim.... Its the law. Kuhnke said in a letter that the downstairs enclosure has been part of her home for decades. The space is needed so relatives can live there to care for her.If required to pay costs of demolition, Kuhnke wrote, it would force me to leave my home and the Keys. At my age and physical condition, I doubt I could survive....

Because of the ongoing reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard expected to take about 18 more months traffic has picked up substantially on Eaton. As it is now, its almost impossible to make a left turn against traffic from Eaton onto White. Commissioners Clayton Lopez and Jimmy Weekley, whose District 1 includes the affected area, are the ones seeking the change. In November commissioners were presented with a comprehensive traffic study that cost $250,000 and suggests, among other things, that a retiming of lights citywide could substantially ease congestion. The City Commission meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Old City Hall on Greene Street.Bazaar permitCommissioners will also take up an item that was postponed earlier in the month that, if approved, could see an open-air farmers market at the Truman Waterfront on weekends through February and March.Action on a permit application from Bazaar Productions Inc. President Candida Andriole was postponed because commissioners wanted more details about the planned operation, including potential vendors.She wants to stage the open-air markets beginning the weekend of Feb. 2 and 3. It would feature artisan foods, fresh produce, arts and crafts, antiques and jewelry.The U.S. Navy gave the proposed Truman Waterfront site to the city in 2002.

Big Pine Key Bike path switchingWith construction of the seawall portion of the North Roosevelt Boulevard rebuild in Key West now under way, the pedestrian and bicycle route is changing.The first stretch of the seawall to be torn out and replaced runs along North Roosevelt from Eisenhower Drive to First Street/Palm Avenue, which is where bikes and pedestrians are now routed. Thats half a mile.Pedestrian and bicycle traffic will be diverted to a six-foot area between the current lanes of traffic and the construction area and will be separated by barriers, project spokesman Dean Walters said.When thats complete, the seawall from Palm Avenue to the Triangle (U.S. 1 and Roosevelt Boulevard) will be replaced.When complete, the entire stretch of Key Wests main traffic artery will include the new seawall bordered by a 20-foot-wide landscaped promenade, four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide, a 10foot center turn lane and a six-foot sidewalk on the business side of the road.The Florida Department of Transportation is paying $31.8 million of the $41.5 million 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 for Miami-based contractor The de Moya Group Inc. is a June 2014 completion for a total of 851 total construction days.For the duration of the construction, DOTis maintaining a website, www.fdot monroe.com/keywest, that allows motorists to register for e-mail updates about changes in work hours, traffic patterns and the like.Move is to accommodate constructionBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Board to urge tighter gun controlAlthough its largely a token action, four members of the Key West City Commission on Wednesday will urge their colleagues to urge Congress to enact tighter gun restrictions.The polarization in the national debate on gun control is reflected in the Florida Keys, known the world over for a laid-back, live-and-letlive ethos with little crime.But this ribbon of islands is also home to the second-highest per-capita rate of concealed-weapon permit holders in the most legally armed state in the country. Of 67 counties, Monroe stands at No. 2.Commissioners Teri Johnston, Clayton Lopez, Billy Wardlow and Jimmy Weekley are specifically calling on their federal counterparts via resolution to outlaw assault weapons and highcapacity magazines as a matter of common sense. They also request legislation to require mandatory background checks and training in conjunction with every firearm purchase in the United States. Directly mentioned in the resolution is the Dec. 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that saw 20-year-old Adam Lanza gun down 27 people before killing himself. Lanza used a Bushmaster XM-15 semi-automatic assault rifle, just the type of weapon under fire locally and across the country.In December, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which regulates guns in the Sunshine State, said it had issued the states 1 millionth concealed weapon permit since the programs inception in 1987.In the Keys, 7.6 percent of residents are allowed to legally carry a concealed weapon. That breaks down to 5,641 licenses for 73,873 people. Were second statewide only to Dixie County in the Gainesville area, which boasts a 9.5 percent per-capita rate of concealed weapons licenses.Theres a companion item on Wednesdays commission agenda this one sponsored by the full seven-member commission asking City Manager Bob Vitas to work with the Monroe County School District and area law enforcement to work cooperatively and collaboratively ... to develop a plan and funding strategies to safeguard the citys school children.While theres no detailed description of what form such a plan may take, the city and School District already co-fund the school resource officers assigned to Key West schools.Mayor Craig Cates has mentioned finding money to pay for a full-time school resource officer at both Key West High School and Horace OBryant Middle School; the current arrangement has the officer leave the high school for the middle school at 1 p.m. In Marathon, theres the same arrangement a resource officer is shared by the schools.The commission meets at Old City Hall on Greene Street starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday.Highlighting how hot the issue of gun control is, on Thursday, Cates attended a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C., during which Vice President Biden urged action on gun control.

Human-inducted physical damage ranks as a low threat to the specific corals, she said.If you do your activity in a way that is mindful of protecting the species, there would be no prohibition, she said.Rising ocean temperatures, coral diseases and ocean acidification linked to greenhouse gases are the greatest threats, she said during a comment session held at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo.The session drew only about a dozen people. No one protested the proposed listing of staghorn coral, elkhorn coral, pillar coral, boulder star coral, mountain star coral and star coral as endangered. Staghorn and elkhorn now are listed as threatened species. Lamarcks sheet coral and elliptical star coral are being considered for new listing as threatened. State Department of Transportation permit coordinator John Palenchar said the agency needs to make sure that corals found growing on a bridge support column would not prevent critically needed repairs. Its a new level of protection and we want to abide by the regulations, Palenchar said. But we dont want to get so bogged down in process that we cant maintain the bridges. DOTalready works with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to transplant corals that could be hurt by underwater work, he said. Ablanket permit for DOT maintenance may work.Arepresentative of the Coral Restoration Foundation created by Ken Nedimyer also asked about permitting. Moore said the Fisheries Service works closely with Nedimyer and supports his efforts.Seven would be listed as endangeredENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

Today, a penny cant buy what it used to, but the meaning of these words and the philosophy of thrift are timeless. The meaning of the word thrift is actually to thrive.National Thrift Week begins each year on Jan. 17 in honor of the birthday of Benjamin Franklin, Americas foremost thrift advocate. The thrift education movement began in 1916 as the nation faced the reality of World War I to prepare citizens for a wartime economy.Florida Thrift Week runs through Jan. 23 to encourage all Floridians to learn and implement the values of thrift and saving as steps toward long-term financial success. When thrift becomes a way of life, it cultivates responsible consumerism and promotes civic progress. As Floridians wisely use their time and talents, work hard, save for the future and spend less than they earn, the economy moves forward in a healthy environment of growth. The James Madison Institute, a Florida-based research and educational organization with the mission of keeping Floridians informed about their government, is leading the celebration of National Thrift Week. Targeting high school seniors, it has partnered with newspapers throughout the state to distribute a supplemental curriculum, All About the Benjamins: Understanding the Value of Thrift, full of stories about people who have faithfully practiced thrift to reach their financial goals and dreams. I am proud that JMI has been a partner in my own Your Money Matters initiative. Thrift is important not only in our personal choices but also in government spending. Franklins America faced many of the same economic challenges that we face today with rising national debt and a culture surviving on credit. In todays society, we cannot continue the kind of haphazard governance that contributes to an environment of uncertainty. We simply cannot continue on a path of rising debt because, at some point, debt must be paid and, sadly, it may be our children and grandchildren who are forced to foot the bill. My mission is to help keep hardearned dollars in Floridianspockets where they belong. If we each make a daily choice of responsible financial habits, as a nation, we can battle our nations increasing debt and economic uncertainty one penny at a time. Jeff Atwater Florida CFO TallahasseeProposed developer must address the increased auto volume sure to arise from new constructionAsk any Lower Keys commuter who makes the daily trek into Key West and youll hear about slowdowns and backups at the bridge that carries U.S. 1 from Big Coppitt to Rockland Key. Now, imagine a big-box retail store along with other shops and a community center on Rockland Key and you can imagine the sorts of questions raised at Wednesdays Monroe County Commission meeting when the issue went to public hearing. Appropriately, commissioners were not awestruck at the prospect of a Target or Walmart envisioned by some for that largely underutilized industrial area. Commissioners wanted to know how much additional traffic would be generated on U.S. 1 as a result. County staff had raised similar questions in earlier meetings with the developer, who didnt have answers. The state Department of Transportation will play a big role in this, regardless of what happens with the countys own review. Already, DOThas warned of traffic nearing capacity at bottlenecks elsewhere on U.S. 1, specifically the section from mile marker 73 to marker 84. Areport delivered to the county in December warned that falling below approved traffic levels could limit any new construction. The study, done by URS Corp., includes areas of the Lower Keys as nearing those capacity limits. The Georgia-based developer wants the county to change zoning on the 33-acre Rockland parcel from industrial use to commercial. That would allow the property owner to maximize value of the scarified land, which has housed gravel pits, a plant nursery, steel fabrication plant, warehouses and an adult bookstore. Development plans started out with a request for 500,000 square feet of buildings on the site. The Planning Commission voted to accept 400,000 square feet. But county planning staff recommends no more than 300,000 square feet. Clearly, theres a disconnect between development dreams for the parcel and what planners and county staff believe the site can accommodate. At Wednesdays meeting, the developer did concede on building a community center as part of the project, a request made during earlier discussions with the county. The Key Largo library, for example, is in commercial space at the Trade Winds Shopping Plaza a precedent cited by Growth Management Director Christine Hurley. With the hurdles remaining to be addressed, its hard to see the County Commission giving this zoning overlay the green light at next months meeting in Marathon. There are too many questions not yet answered, chief among them: How to handle the extra traffic generated by a big-box retail center at Key Wests doorstep? Thanks,MarathonThis was the fifth year the Veterans Council of Monroe County sponsored the Wounded Warrior Soldier Ride riding through Marathon and over the Seven Mile Bridge. The Marathon City Council voted to donate $1,000 toward it and the $3,000 balance was raised by calling on the people of this great city. Marathon is the heart of the Florida Keys but more important, is the heart and thoughtfulness of those that live here. I would like to thank Marathon business, residents and friends for mailing and delivering the donations to my home. The donations, shirts donated by Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys and Cycling Calendars by Darrell Parks, were presented at a Soldier Ride dinner. Grace Parks MarathonDoc will be missedI would like to thank everyone who attended the memorial for Dr. Larry Goldschlager, my husband. Most especially, I would like to thank those who spoke. At the memorial, local doctors spoke concerning Dr. Goldschlagers vast and profound medical knowledge and patients related heartwarming vignettes of my husband helping them, telling them jokes and stories in order to relax. Patients described how they knew he would always spend as much time as a patient needed, explaining medical issues until the patient fully understood. When all hope was lost, this very dedicated and loving doctor unstintingly was available to the community. Patients knew they could call on him any hour of the day or night. As so many have expressed, Dr. Goldschlagers passing is a real loss to the community and to mankind as a whole. Thank you for demonstrating the respect and love Dr. Goldschlager was due. J.

Barbara Paget Marathon Capsized, 2 swim to safetyTwo Lower Keys men spent several hours swimming to shore after Thursdays gusty winds capsized their boat, according to a U.S. Coast Guard report. The men reached shore after swimming about five miles in about five hours, a relative reported to the U.S. Coast Guard. The names of the two men were not released pending approval from them, Petty Officer Mark Barney said Friday. There were no reports of injury. Available information says the two men were aboard a Mako open-fisherman boat that was caught in strong northwest winds arriving with a winter storm front. Weather-reporting buoys indicate wind speeds on the open water increased from 10 mph to 30 mph in a matter of minutes late Thursday afternoon. These kinds of winter storm fronts are not rare, forecaster Mike Rapsik said from the Key West office of the National Weather Service. This storm was in the forecast.LOWER KEYSBull: Revisit advisory boardsMarathon City Councilman Chris Bull says he wants to fix a perceived disconnect between the council and its numerous advisory boards.Elected in November, Bull said he sat in on several of the boardsmeetings on the campaign trail and called many of the panels rudderless ships.Is the committee one we want to keep going with or is it time to sunset it? he asked. If it is something we want to keep, how can they be most effective in doing good things for the council and for the city? Ill probably ask for a workshop with them and there will be some planning.People are volunteering their time ... theres a lot of people that bring good ideas and we have to figure out how to best get them working for the city of Marathon again, he continued. Bull used the Parks and Recreation Board example, saying its underutilized. Theyve been mad that a couple of things have gone directly to council without any review from them, he said, noting a much-debated $500,000 splash park at the Marathon Community Park. That idea has been tabled for now. In addition, Bull said the citys Land Acquisition Board hasnt met in over a year, and that its Community Development Block Grant board is not active at all. Bull plans to discuss his ideas for revamping the advisory boards at Tuesdays City Council meeting, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Also on the agenda is a final resolution awarding 65 new hotel rooms to four development projects in Marathon.The council gave out 65 of 100 units awarded by the state Cabinet last year at its Jan. 8 meeting. They were a reward for the city nearly completing its central sewer system as mandated by the state.Key West-based Spottswood Cos. received 25 units for its long-awaited 125-room Hyatt at the Faro Blanco property in Old Town. Roger Masters and his partner, Prime Hospitality Group, were awarded 19 units for a planned 95-room Courtyard by Marriott near mile marker 48. Pritam Singhs 87-unit Tranquility Bay was awarded 16 one-bedroom units, while the 20-unit Bonefish Bay Motel near Key Colony Beach received five units.Councilman wants review of their rolesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONMEMORIAL GATHERING A large crowd of mourners, primarily Key West High School students,turns out Wednesdayfor a candlelight vigil in memoryof Matthew Logan Gilleran, a 14-year-old Key West High student who shot himself in the head on Jan.11.Authorities termed his death a suicide.Photo by STEVE TORRENCE/ KEY WEST POLICEKeynoter Staff
Looking toward the future, Keys developer Pritam Singh has brought in a New York City-based company to operate Tranquility Bay Resort in Marathon and the Parrot Key Resort in Key West, both of which he built during the housing boom in the 1990s. Singh has brought in Northwood Hospitality, an affiliate of Northwood Investors, to operate the hotels for the new partnership.Singh says there are two reasons why: Itll help with his estate planning, and hed rather build hotels than manage them. So now his full focus is on the Seaport, a 96-unit hotel hes planning to construct on the site of the former Jabours Trailer Court in Key West.I get to do what I like to do, and thats build buildings, he said. Thats why its a good partnership. That required us to change our finance model and required us to look outside the Keys because were talking a substantial amount of dollars.Northwood acquired the upscale 27-acre Cheeca Lodge and Spa in Islamorada in 2011.Parrot Key is a 148-unit resort on North Roosevelt Boulevard covering five acres. Tranquility Bay, adjacent to the Marathon Government Center, sits on 12 acres. It has 87 units, with another 16 to be constructed this year.Singh says staff at Parrot Key and Tranquility Bay will remain stable. Northwood will be managing the hotels along with my staff. Singh has been behind some $1 billion in Keys development, including the two resorts, the Key West Golf Club, Truman Annex in Key West, the Village at Hawks Cay on Duck Key, and Indigo Reef and the Boathouse in Marathon.Itll operate Parrot Key, Tranquility BayKeynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThis is the main building at Tranquility Bay at mile marker 48.5.Northwood Hospitality has partnered with Pritam Singh to operate it.Keynoter Staff Saturday,January 19,2013 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com MARKETPLACE RECENT REAL ESTATE SALESSALES vs. LAST YEAR: 86 percent Based on information from the Florida Keys Board of REALTORS, Inc.

Arrested players reinstatedTwo Key West High School basketball stars charged in September with stealing electronics and money from members of the school band and wrestling team have been reinstated amid controversy, although one will not be allowed to play after his arrest this week in a domestic altercation.The band-room incident involving senior JeQuan Lopez and junior Anthony Rice surprised and embarrassed a basketball program that thrived last season when the Conchs went 16-1 and enthralled a sports-minded town that usually reserves its enthusiasm for fishing and baseball.I anticipate that not everyone will agree, Monroe County schools superintendent Mark Porter said of his decision to allow the players to rejoin the team, which was made in December even though Key West Principal Amber Bosco recommended that the players sit out the entire season.Bosco said she has received a lot of e-mails from parents and staff expressing displeasure over the reinstatements. Porters decision, however, appeared to become moot, at least in one case, after it was learned Wednesday that Lopez was again ineligible after being arrested by Key West police Tuesday night at the George Allen Apartments and charged with domestic battery by strangulation. He was taken to the Monroe County Detention Center.He hit his girlfriend, Glenwood Lopez, the players grandfather said. He was visiting their [newborn] baby.Discussing his decision, Porter said Lopez and Rice who initially had been suspended from school for 10 days (they were not expelled) after the band-room thefts fulfilled a 45-day placement at the districts alternative schoolSuperintendent overrules Bosco in theft caseBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BOYS HOOPS LOPEZ RICE Lady Fins advance to regionalAlack of motivation Tuesday almost cost Marathon High School a trip to the District 16-2Agirls soccer tournament championship game. Coach Cindy Durkin said the Dolphins took a Palmer Trinity School team it had shut out twice this season for granted and came out flat in a semifinal match on the Falconshome field.The Dolphins, who improved to 9-6-3, notched two first-half goals and held on for a 2-1 win, setting up a Friday final against Westminster Christian School (played too late for results in todays paper).Durkin said the Dolphins planned to review tape of their only match against the Warriors, a 2-2 draw in Marathon, on the way to Miami Friday. Going into Westminster, they want redemption from that 2-2 game, she said. Still, either a win or loss moved the Dolphins onto the state regional playoffs, but a win meant a home match Wednesday at 7 p.m. Aloss meant traveling to the mainland. Opponents for those matches have yet to be determined. Against Palmer, Our team played well, Durkin said. The only thing was the intensity wasnt where I wanted it to be. But its hard to pump the team up when you play a team twice and win 4-0 and 5-0. They got it together and held strong.Durkin added that Palmer seemed to feed off the homefield advantage of hosting the tournament. They had a good crowd out to cheer the team on and they played the best Ive seen them play, she said.But the crowed and homefield advantage werent enoughOnly question is tournament title contestBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON GIRLS SOCCERLady Hurricanes finish 8-5The Lady Hurricanes of Coral Shores High advanced to the District 16-2Asoccer semifinals before ending the season Wednesday in a 4-0 loss to Gulliver Prep. The girls played very well, head coach Arthur Paterson said. It was only 1-0 at halftime but we just got worn down in the second half.Although the Canes (8-5) will not advance to the regional tournament, Paterson considers the season a success.It was a good year, he said. When you look at where we started and where we ended, its very satisfying. This team improved every week, every game. Its a good group to work with, and I enjoyed it. Coral Shores opened the postseason Tuesday with a 2-1 tournament quarterfinal win over Florida Christian, a team that topped the Canes in the regular season by the same score. Heather Doyle and Cailin Reckwerdt scored to give the Coral Shores a 2-0 lead. Paterson said he was not concerned when the Lady Patriots scored on a secondhalf penalty kick to draw within a goal. We dominated the first half when Florida Christian did not get a shot on goal, he said. Then we held them off with very strong play from our defense and middle.Pookie del Pino played well in the net with help from field defenders Cheyenne Harris and Cheyenne Minaldi.The Canes graduate six seniors, headed by season leading scorer Iris Dunn.Soccer team eliminated in tourneyCORAL SHORES GIRLS SOCCERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores soccer coach Arthur Paterson helps honor six graduating Lady Hurricanes at a recent Senior Night.They are (from left) Heather Doyle,Iris Dunn,Becca T immerman,Cheyenne Harris,Cheyenne Minaldi and Mallory Wiecjorek.McCarthy closes out the ConchsThe season ended for the Key West High girls soccer team Wednesday when the Conchs lost to Archbishop McCarthy, 3-0, in the semifinals of the District 16-3A tournament at McCarthys field in Southwest Ranches.The Conchs needed to win to advance to the state playoffs.McCarthy which improved to 18-5-2 and avenged a season-opening 43 loss to the Conchs in Key West had a 2-0 lead at halftime after goals by Kristina Robles (on a 40-yard shot) and Michaela Garcia. The Maverickssecond-half goal was by Alexa Rivera. The Conchs did not have a shot on goal. We controlled the whole game, McCarthy coach Mike Sica told the Miami Herald The Conchs got strong performances from Lauren and Raquel Schoneck, who closed out their careers (they will go on to softball). Raquel was phenomenal in the back, said coach Scott Paul. She lived up to the word sweeperwith her speed and timing. Keeper Angela Martin, playing her best game of the season, had eight saves, and Hannah Leen played her third solid game in a row.

Bosco said letters were received from Lopez but not from Rice. Lopez, 17, the son of boys basketball coach Anton Lopez, and Rice, who turned 17 this month, were arrested on felony charges Sept. 12 after marching-band members returned from an outdoor practice to discover phones and cash missing from bags and purses they had left in the band room. According to a police report, five phones, five iPods and two head-phone sets valued at close to $3,000 were taken, as was $140 in cash. Some items were taken from wrestling-team members, whose bags had been left in the school weight room, the report said. Surveillance cameras and teachers helped officers identify Lopez and Rice. Most of the electronics were returned to their owners.Contacted this week in the band room, band director Gary Hernandez said, Theres mixed opinion within the community as to what should be done. When he discovered the thefts, he had believed it must have been somebody from the community to find out it was two students was a little surprising.Anton Lopez who appealed Boscos recommendation to Porter said his son has been on probation in the court system. ADepartment of Juvenile Justice spokesman said he could not discuss the case.Because Rice and Lopez have not been convicted, they theoretically would be eligible to play under the schools student-athlete contract. Any student convicted of a felony, according to the contract, is suspended from extra-curricular activities for the balance of the school year.I know who my son is, Anton Lopez said before practice on Tuesday afternoon. He made a bad mistake, a juvenile mistake. From the day it happened, he knew that he was wrong. Glenwood Lopez Antons father and JeQuans grandfather is a minister at Trinity Presbyterian Church, which both attend, and also referees Conch basketball games.We were all surprised, he said, recalling his reaction upon hearing of the bandroom thefts. Hes shown remorse. Its been a tough time because he hasnt been able to play the sport he loves.The 6-foot-5 Rice and the 6-3 Lopez were standouts on last seasons team and considered college prospects. Rice could play next week, Bosco said, if he has a 2.0 grade-point average. She said its unlikely Lopez will be allowed to play in any of the teams remaining games. On Thursday, Glenwood Lopez talked about his grandsons latest arrest and also spoke softly about his son: Hes devastated.Porter overrules BoscoFrom Reinstated,1BAbuse Shelter.

Coral Shores has several experienced players eligible to return next winter, including Reckwerdt and del Pino.Alot of girls really stepped up this year, like Rachel Walters and [defender] Katharine Hamer, who had a great first season, Paterson said.All our girls should be proud, the coach said. They can look themselves in the mirror and feel good. They did well.Six seniors graduatingFrom Canes,1Bto keep the Dolphins off the board in the opening minutes. Savannah Rodamer scored at the 4:05 mark off a cross from senior Taylor Konrath.We played Taylor out wide to start with because we knew they were going to man mark her, and they did. They triple marked her most of the game, but she got some good crosses into the middle, Durkin said.Marathon made it 2-0 at the 28:26 mark, when Konrath scored off a Brandi Spalten assist. Spalten was returning after missing the regular-season finale due to injury.Goalie Sacha Olivera managed to keep the Falcons off the scoreboard until the 66:50 mark, when Palmer chipped a deflected rebound in over her head to make it 2-1. Durkin said the Dolphins had several really nice missed opportunities, including a diving save by Palmers goalie and later, no penalty kick awarded on what appeared to be a foul inside the 18yard box.Goalie Olivera tough in netFrom Dolphins,1B back next season, as will, among others, Libby Isherwood, Caila DeAbreu, Gabby Pozzi, Adriana Garcia, Julia Passarelli, Lindsey Free, Maudia Azard and Selyne Casas, all of whom made major contributions this winter.Key West finished 1211-2 for its 14th consecutive winning season under Paul. The Conchs had reached the semifinals by defeating Pompano Beach 3-0 on Tuesday, with Lauren Schoneck, Isherwood and Leen scoring the goals.Lady Conchs finish 12-11-2From Conchs,1B Dolphins even mark at 8-8The Marathon High School girls basketball team overcame a sluggish start Wednesday to earn a second win this season over District 16-2Arival Westminster Christian School, 36-23. The Dolphins shot just 3for-16 from the free-throw line in the first half but stifled the Warriors defensively and led 15-10 at the break.Coach Leslie Lindsey said she told the girls to pick up their intensity in the second half and earn the district win for outgoing senior Jessica Forest. Shes been with the program since her sixth grade year. They did what they needed to do to get a win, Lindsey said. Forest apparently took the message to heart, as well, scoring eight of her gamehigh 12 points in the second half. That includes a pair of three-pointers. Marathon outscored Westminster 11-2 in the third quarter to build a 14-point lead, 26-12, and held on for the 36-23 victory.We played good defense. Our 1-3-1 [zone] is pretty sound, its just offensively we struggle to get going, Lindsey said. In the fourth quarter, we had a lead and I told the girls to work the ball around and run the clock down. We need to get better at [passing], so it was something we were able to work on.Lindsey added that shes happy with the win but disappointed in the Dolphins4for-18 (22 percent) performance on free throws. I have said it to the girls for two years. We know that free throws win games and until they decide to make the free throws, were not going to win the games we need to, she said.

Winter is dry season in Everglades National Park, when the great River of Grass dries down to its roots and animals flock to deeper water in the sloughs. Its also a perfect time to check out Americas greatest swamp. On Taylor Slough (pronounced slew), photographers of all skill levels find spectacular opportunities along the Anhinga Trail, so named for the birds that nest within whispering distance of boardwalk hikers. Patient green herons lean over clear water, surprising a fish now and then. Great blue herons and white egrets pose on long legs in the sawgrass, and raucous purple gallinules carefully place their feet with their toes, as long as their legs, on a bridge of lily pads. In the evening, snoozing alligators awaken and move with purpose through the slough, where they pull up on mud banks and wait, invisibly, in the night, watching. An evening tour with a flashlight reveals just how many red-reflecting eyes are present in the dark shadows.Long before Google Earth and easy access to satellite photos, the profound silence of Everglades National Parks sawgrass prairie held a classified secret one of four Nike Hercules missile sites in South Florida built in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Although Everglades National Park was established to protect wildlife, in response to the gravity of the situation, park managers issued the U.S. Army a permit to build the base within the park. Since 2004, when the Cold War relic was listed on the National Register of Historic places, park interpreters have worked with former Nike crew members and military historians to gather information and artifacts that tell the story of ordinary soldiers at an extraordinary time in history. Tours of the site have become wildly popular, as babyboomers share their memories with new generations.Flamingo, just 38 miles from the parks main entrance, is the gateway to Florida Bay home to world-class flats fishing and the only place in the world to see both the American alligators and American crocodiles in the same place. The half-million acres of Florida Bay make up one third of the park, and its seagrass beds provide essential nursery grounds for fish, lobster, crabs, and other species. Visitors will never forget boating across the bay on a calm summer morning or lazily kayaking through a shady mangrove tunnel. West Indian manatees also like to loll around the marina, scrubbing their sides on dock pilings and eliciting squeals of delight from visitors. Camp there or at Long Pine Key. Traveling north? The Shark River Slough is the focus for visitors who venture into the park from the Tamiami Trail. The bridge construction slowing your drive in 2013 is part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, which aims to return the flow of water into the glades to historic levels. At Shark River, you can hike, bike or take a tram on the 15-mile paved loop. Take a break midway to ascend to the top of the observation tower and stand 50 feet tall in the middle of the Everglades. Further west on the Tamiami Trail, drive through Big Cypress National Preserve and into historic Everglades City. Relax on a ranger-led paddling or pontoon boat tour through the mangrove islands of the Gulf of Mexico. This is the northern terminus of the 99-mile Wilderness Waterway, which spans the western edge of Everglades National Park and is dotted with sturdy chickees camp platformsbuilt over the water. The adventures you can have in this 1.5 million-acre park are endless. Ivy Kelley is an outreach specialist at Everglades National Park.

Like some people, I consider the beginning of a year as an opportunity for new possibilities and chances to start things off on the right foot.This year, my list of resolutions will carry me not just through 2013 but beyond. They reflect my passion for healthy living and the environment and are not one-time goals but practices I can implement one step at a time.Healthy eating incorporate more produce and greens like spinach and kale in our diet.Studies have indicated the magnesium in green vegetables improves blood circulation and provides beneficial vitamins. We are continuing with our Eat Less Meat campaign, which means at least one meatless meal a week. Going gluten-free in the house also means no bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, cakes or pies.It sounds difficult and it was in the beginning, so when the going gets tough, there are gluten-free alternatives. The plus is that my husbands arthritis hardly bothers him and if you dont cheat, it can help drop the pounds.Conserve water. Our faulty 10-year-old toilet 1.6 gallons per flush is being replaced with a new lower-flush toilet shortly and I hope to see a reduction in our monthly 2,400-gallon water usage. My yard consists of 98 percent native plants; the 2 percent nonnative get watered with my rain-barrel water. I have decided that whatever doesnt survive wasnt meant to be. My vegetable garden, 7 feet by 4 feet, gets watered every other day but will provide homegrown mustard greens, Swiss chard and tomatoes.Conserve energy. We fight a daily battle with the afternoon sun coming into the west-facing front of our house using a system of outside blinds and indoor drapes. We have tinting on our 10-year-old porch windows but are looking at more energy-efficient windows as a long-term investment.More than 40 percent of a homes annual energy is consumed by windows. Newer windows are twice as efficient as those from 10 years ago. In the meantime, we are still using our 10-year-old appliances (some Energy Starcompliant, some not) and CFLbulbs, and turn down the AC when were out. When our appliances break down, well replace them with energy-efficient versions.Recycle.Last year my husband made me a second composter from an old trash bin. My neighbor and I throw our kitchen scraps into the composters and the cycle from scraps to black gold is very satisfying.Also, Monroe County Recycling announced we can recycle plastics coded 1-7 and request no plastic bags in our recycling receptacles bags get caught in the recycling machinery and cause costly shutdowns.Reduce plastic disposables and waste. At home, we use reusable water bottles for trips, glass containers for leftovers, and washable glassware and silverware for parties and gettogethers. Last June, I joined the Got Your Bags? Florida Keys group to help reduce plastic bags and encourage more reusable bag use. We live in a beautiful place and it pains me to see plastic bags in the waters, caught up in the mangroves or lying along the road with other plastic trash. The groups campaign is focused on Big Pine Key and continues at various outdoor events through April. Volunteers at the National Key Deer Refuge supported our efforts recently with a sign at the old Coconut Farm location at mile marker 30.5. See more on Facebook at www.facebook.com/got yourbagsfloridakeys .As I make this list, I know it be easy to keep it will improve our health, benefit my surroundings and in the long run, save us money. I look forward to making this happen.Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education.

Saturday,January 19,2013 7B Keynoter KeysNet.com Islamorada hosts Fine Art Expo IIApiece may begin as a response to a mood, the essence of a shape, or a feeling about a material or color combination. More importantly, I look to evoke an emotional reaction within the person viewing a work. Sally J.

All the action and the richly-tuned dialogue take place in an upstairs bedroom of the estate.The five women are bridesmaids in the wedding ceremonies about to begin below.For various reasons revealed during the play, each has a reason to avoid the wedding hoopla and attention.The characters include Meredith, the brides younger sister who harbors a secret; Meredith (Mindy), the sarcastic pot-smoking, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist and the brides cousin; Georgeanne, the brides ugly sidekick from middle school whose own failed marriage sets the trigger for whats to come, and Trisha, a former friend of the bride, described by the author as a jaded beauty with a cynics take on men until she meets Tripp, the bad boy usher who harbors secrets of his own. The script has been called wickedly funny, irreverent and a touching celebration of the womens spirit.If youve seen any episodes of True Blood or Six Feet Under, youll know the writing takes center stageMarathon play by Six Feet UnderwriterTHEATER Cast of Five Women Wearing the Same Dress(left to right):Row 1,Courtney Coburn and Vanessa Collins;Row 2, Cheri Edwards,Stacey Venzel,James Chaplin and Marianne Benvenuti.LAttitudes StaffQuirky, delightful: Amust see filmSilver Linings Playbook, R ated R, 122 min. Now playing nationwide.This quirky film has been called a comedy, a drama and a romance, all of which are apt terms. But Silver Linings Playbook is more than that it imparts new life into all three of those genres. The film takes the viewer on a roller coaster ride of emotions that parallels the bipolar nature of the main character and gives viewers a frank, unflinching portrayal of mental illness and its effects on family and community. The script is enthralling, the acting is terrific and the direction is superb. As a result, the movie is rightly nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Director. Pat Solitano, Jr. has just been released from a mental institution, after an eightmonth stint as part of his plea bargain for assaulting a man he caught in the shower with his wife. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder but refusing to take his meds, he has to move back in with his parents. As Pat returns home to an awkward reunion with his father, who is fanatically OCD about his beloved Philadelphia Eagles football team, the emotional fireworks start and escalate quickly. With no job, a wife with a restraining order against him, a dysfunctional family, a police officer observing him and an entire neighborhood watching his every move, Pat tries desperately to put his life back together even as his intense bipolar episodes threaten to send him back to the institution. He is frantic to reconnect with his wife and soon hooks up with Tiffany, a relative ofSilver Linings Playbookamong years bestFILM Jennifer Lawrence just won a Golden Globe award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.Craig Wanous KeysFilm See Film,9BSee Theater,8B

Saturday,January 19,2013 9B Keynoter KeysNet.com Bayview Park the place to be SaturdayThe Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association hosts their big blowout Key West Seafood Festival Saturday, Jan. 19. Festivities kick off at 11 a.m. and food, music, a kids fun zone and more run until 8 p.m. The festival menu runs the gamet, including grilled spiny lobster, fried fish, stone crab claws, pick n peel Key West Pink shrimp, smoked fish dip with crackers, fried clam strips, lobster bisque, and several conch recipes handed down by the wives of Keys commercial fishermen. For those landlubbers who dont embrace the bounty of the sea, festival cooks will also be serving up hot dogs and hamburgers. And there will be plenty of beverages available for sale, including cold beer, wine, water and soda.Anyone with a sweet tooth will also find something to satisfy, with desserts featuring such things as Estellas famous flan, key lime tarts, and soft ice cream.Capt. Marlin Scott will emcee live music during the daylong festival. Festival proceeds help fund scholarships awarded by the association to high school students who pursue careers in the marine industry and commercial fishing. For more information, call Vicki Gale at 872-9026 or e-mail her at: Vicki@ fkcfa.org. Or, you can visit the associations website at: www .fkcfa.org .KEY WESTSeafood Festival serves up food, music and morea friend who is going through her own mental crisis. Tiffany says that she can help him contact his wife, but only if he will do a favor for her. And fulfilling those mutual favors will put Pat and Tiffany together in a way neither they, nor the viewer, could have anticipated.Directed by David O. Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter) and starring Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Limitless), Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games, Winters Bone,) Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) and Robert de Niro, Silver Linings Playbook features dazzling performances by the four lead actors, all of whom are nominated for Academy Awards. Cooper brings such fierce intensity and realism to his role that viewers will likely be fidgeting uncomfortably in their seats for the first 30 minutes of the film. Lawrence recently won a Golden Globe for her performance and appears to be a leading candidate for the Best Actress Oscar. Her performance as the widow trying to overcome her scandalous reaction to the death of her husband is powerful and filled with raw emotion, moodiness and unexpected nuance.Weaver, playing the mother and wife struggling to deal with the difficult men in her life, gives her character a tenderness and toughness that is heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. De Niro is the best hes been in years as Pats father, who is bizarrely superstitious about maintaining the juju that will help the hometown Eagles triumph every Sunday.The only flaw comes near the end as Pat finally gets to speak with his wife at the dance competition. He seems to have a new-found control of his emotions that doesnt quite fit with the earlier, nearly out-of-control Pat. But other than that small misstep, Silver Linings Playbook is one of the years best films and a mustsee that will surprise and delight viewers. The Copacabana is a famous New York City nightclub and restaurant that opened in 1940. It was famous for its Brazilian dcor, Latin music and the Copacabana Girls, who wore fruited turbans and sported pink hair.
