Ramsay talked about his plans with the Marathon City Council last Tuesday including encouraging city officials to fence off a portion of the Trailerama Mobile Home Park bordering 15th Street.Trailerama is a sprawling trailer park housing lowincome residents and thats widely known to have myriad code violations. It also has a resident rooster population.My goal is to focus on community first. What I mean by that is I want to be active in community partnerships and crime prevention, Ramsay said. Like on 15th Street. Its important for people to have a sense of safety and security. Even if theres not a crime problem, theres a perception of crime. Ramsay said the idea isnt to cage everyone in, but to make the area safe for both Trailerama residents and visitors to waterfront restaurants at the end of 15th Street. He said entrances to the trailer park along U.S. 1 and further down 15th Street would remain unimpeded.To me, a fence between Trailerama and 15th is important. The problem were experiencing is people curb-drinking and extending the back yards onto the right of way, he said. It makes it look nicer aesthetically for the people living here and a better sense of safety. It also makes it harder for people to migrate in and out of Trailerama.Mayor Mike Cinque said he discussed the idea of cleaning up various parts of the city with Ramsay shortly after Ramsay was elected in November.We were talking about doing some communitybased policing. I told him Id be as supportive as possible, he said. Unfortunately, you have a few bad apples. The majority of those people are good people.Cinque said a fence would benefit the residents by preventing people cutting through private property. It takes away from their privacy. They just duck between trailers, he said. I think the fence will make it more secure and safe for the people that live there.It seems like a nice way to help that neighborhood, but we dont have any moneyHe says the trailer parks just one of several problem areasBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMonroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay says he wants a fence between this stretch of 15th Street in Marathon and the adjacent Trailerama Mobile Home Park.Its part of an effort hes begun to conduct cleanup projects up and down the Keys.Druckemillerplea March 6Lisa Druckemiller, the former Monroe County Technical Services administrator charged with stealing and selling 52 county-owned Apple electronic devices, will throw herself on the mercy of the court and enter a plea with no promises of what sentence shell receive.Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson said Tuesday that there is no plea bargain after months of negotiating. As recently as last month, Druckemillers attorney, Robert Cintron, said a plea agreement was likely.Instead, Wilson said she will enter whats called an open plea to the court before Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin.Its scheduled for 8:30 a.m. March 6 at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West, followed on April 1 by a 9 a.m. sentencing, also in Key West.Druckemiller, 51, is charged with dealing in stolen property and scheme to defraud. She admitted her guilt before a grand jury last July, saying she stole $23,311 worth of countyowned electronics and sold them for a combined $4,778, mostly to county workers. She could receive 15 years on each of the seconddegree felonies. Druckermillers plea plan is similar to what former Monroe County School District administrator Monique Acevedo did. Charged with six felonies in the theft of more than $400,000 in public money and with overwhelming evidence against her, she pleaded guilty in 2010 and was sentenced to eight years in state prison.Druckemiller abruptly retired last February when the electronics scandal emerged.Among those implicated were 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. In the letter of reprimand, then-Mayor David Rice wrote that as the county administrator, you are to be held to a higher standard of conduct than other employees. In fact, you are expected to set the example for all other employees to follow. In this matter, you have failed to meet that expectation.Henry Hank Kokenzie, 44, of Key West was one of five county employees subject to disciplinary review for receiving phones and/or tablets from Druckemiller.Prison term up to 30 years is possibilityBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS DRUCKEMILLER Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYWork is under way to refurbish a pair of baseball fields at the Marathon Community Park.The City Council approved an $89,462 contract with Sports Turf One Inc.in January to remove Bermuda grass infields in favor of clay that makes the fields flexible for either baseball or softball.DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH Neugent named to BPcommitteeWhen it comes time to allocate Floridas share of the BPDeepwater Horizon settlements, Monroe County Mayor George Neugent will play a large role. Neugent was selected Friday to serve as one of five officials on the executive committee of the Gulf Consortium, representing 23 Florida coastal counties affected by the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Neugent said being picked as one of two at-large members is pretty exciting and very humbling. Given the pace of settlement talks, Neugent said the Gulf Consortium could have an idea by late spring of how much member counties might receive from Deepwater Horizon defendants. Co-defendant Transocean Ltd. agreed Tuesday to pay the federal government $1 billion in civil penalties after earlier agreeing to pay $400 million in criminal fines related to the largest oil spill in U.S. history. It could be an amazing amount of money, Neugent said. It may be a once-in-alifetime situation where Monroe County could be the beneficiary of, hopefully, as much as $100 million.Floridas Gulf Consortium formed after Congress passed the federal RESTORE Act standing for the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunity and Revived Economies Act for the Gulf states.The act directs about 80 percent of fines from the BP spill to areas affected by it. Without the act, all the fine money would have gone to the general federal treasury. Most of the money coming to Florida will go toCommissioners just one of 5 on the panelDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTERStill no claim on $17M ticketThe winner of a $17 million Saturday Lotto drawing who purchased the ticket at a Publix in Key West hadnt come forward to claim his or her prize Tuesday afternoon, the Florida Lottery said.

A trail blazer, devoted to womens rights, Paula was the second woman to enroll at the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1930. After receiving a bachelors degree with a major in journalism, she served as a reporter for the Miami Daily News from 1936 through 1941. Thereafter she worked for the Salt Lake City Tribune and the Associated Press. She began work at the Miami Herald as a reporter having a desk next to Henry Reno, and was later promoted to the Heralds Sunday editor. As the first woman admitted to the National Association of Sunday Newspaper Editors, she went on to serve as President of that organization. Paula had a strong work ethic. Employed for the last twenty years of her career as Public Relations Director of the Hartford Courant, with Herculean promotional outreach efforts she doubled the Courants circulation. She also served on the Board of Education and Democratic Town Committee in her home town, Harwinton, Connecticut. Moving to Key Largo in 1976, Paula worked as a "stringer" reporter covering the Upper Keys for the Miami Herald. She was active in the Friends of the Key Largo Library and the Bureau of Professional Women for whom she published a newsletter. A true bibliophile, she volunteered at the Key Largo Librarys gift shop for many years. She was also a member of the Purple Isle art guild. Paula is perhaps best known in Key Largo as the founder in March of 2000 of the Senior Group, sponsored by the Friends of the Key Largo Library. For the past thirteen years, she served as the Senior Groups publicist while also helping her co-chair, Kathy Gong, recruit speakers for the Senior Groups Monday morning speakers program. Paula is survived by two children -a son, William Clark and a daughter, Betty Clark, who resides in Key Largo. She also leaves her beloved daughter-in-law, Sandra Andre, and two cherished grandsons, William Clark and Brian Clark, three great-grand daughters, two nieces and two nephews. She maintained close relations with her family. A celebration of Paulas life will take place at the Key Largo Civic Club Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 11 A.M. He resigned on Nov. 2 prior to a job hearing.Other punishments doled out by former Judge David Kirwan, who was contracted by the county for $250 per hour to hear the cases, included:Aone-day suspension and reprimand for Deputy County Administrator Debbie Frederick.Wastewater Department Administrator Elizabeth Wood and Guardian Ad Litem staffer Lacy Carabello received written reprimands.Agrand jury report on the theft recommended Gastesi and Frederick be fired for their involvement. In 2010, then-County Clerk Danny Kolhage audited county cell-phone policies and procedures, finding that the Technical Services inventory process was insufficient and that Druckemiller had too much control over the purchase, assignment and tracking of phones. He suggested separating cell-phone duties. Gastesi has since taken steps to tighten up controls, including replacing countyowned cell phones for employees with monthly phone stipends.Druckemiller plea comingFrom Druckemiller,1A Panhandle counties that suffered the worst. They had oil on the beaches, Neugent said. But court decisions acknowledge that Monroe County and the states other Gulf Coast counties were harmed when tourists canceled summer vacations during the three-month spill threat. We were a long way from the spill but one of the components [of the spills harm] is sales taxes, Neugent said. We live and breathe off sales taxes and Monroe County took a hit.The full Gulf Consortium in January elected three executive committee members, all county commissioners Chairman Grover Robinson of Escambia County, Vice Chairwoman Susan Latvala of Pinellas and Warren Yeager of Gulf.During the executive committees first meeting, the three elected members selected Neugent and Walton Countys Sara Comander to serve as atlarge members.I took an active role in the [consortium] meetings we did have, and Ive been active in groups like the Florida Association of Counties, Neugent said. I know some of the people involved, and they know me.The committee is expected to focus on providing leadership in trying to keep the 23 counties together so squabbles do not hinder the distribution of money, Neugent said. He will take part in consortium executive meetings in addition to regular monthly meetings.BPfunds are not only about restoring the environmental resources, but getting the economy up and running in all the affected communities, Neugent said.Local projects potentially eligible for funding could include major efforts like cleaning up canals to improve water quality or repairing historic bridges like the old Seven Mile, he said.Neugent says $100M possibleFrom Neugent,1ACity changes events fee policyADecember Florida Keys Art Guild show sparked the Marathon City Council to change its policy about special events on private property. Art Guild President Jeff Hutt said city staff approached him at the show at the Gulfside Village shopping plaza, which ran from Dec. 26 to 30. He said he was handed a form and told to pay an $85 specialevent permit fee.City code requires such events to pay a permit fee if the event has more than 250 people attending throughout an entire day. Councilman Dick Ramsay disagreed with that language and put the fee schedule on Tuesdays agenda for discussion.Meeting Feb. 12, the council unanimously adopted City Manager Roger Hernstadts suggestion to change the language to read or more at one time. The threshold is 250 people all day. That creates a burden for us to determine, Hernstadt said. It would be easier if we changed it from all day to at one time. The fee includes private parties at homes.Thats the way its being proposed, City Attorney John Herin said in an e-mail. Ultimately, it will be the councils decision.The council agreed to include Councilwoman Ginger Sneads suggestion that people holding special events on private property pre-waive their fee with the city.Most of these are nonprofit organizations on private property. Maybe the manager can waive these fees before they come to council since we pretty much waive them all, anyway, Mayor Mike Cinque said.The council granted Hernstadt the ability to grant fee waivers and in a separate motion agreed to put aside the Art Guild fee. In other business, the council presented Finance Director Peter Rosasco with a certificate of achievement for excellence in financial reporting for fiscal year 2010-11. The Government Finance Officers Association has handed out the award since 1945. It aims to encourage and assist state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles.Rosasco, who owns the Bishop Rosasco & Co. accounting firm, was hired by the city in 2003. Tuesday was the eighth consecutive year he was presented with the award. He told the council the award is important because it allows the city to secure the best possible financing when considering projects. Well have the resources we need at the best possible rates allowed. Were a team and its a pleasure to be a part of it, Rosasco said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Pawnshop owner bustedThe Monroe County Sheriffs Office has begun regular inspections of Florida Keys pawnshops and secondhand dealers with an eye on compliance with state recordkeeping laws.Florida statute requires that pawn and secondhand shops keep detailed electronic transaction records using a system called RAPID, or the Regional Automated Property Information Database. We can inspect records anytime, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said. We are currently working on a plan to regularly inspect all shops. Details are being worked out now. On Feb. 13, Detective Dave Chavka stopped to inspect the records being kept by 50-year-old Paul Ollariu at his business at 6810 Front St., Stock Island, called We Buy Gold We Pay More.Chavka found a handwritten log of transactions instead of the computerized records [Ollariu] is required to keep. It appears he was also not in compliance with the requirement to obtain identification and fingerprints of people selling items to him, Herrin said. Records indicate Ollariu recorded 24 allegedly illegal transactions between November and February. They correspond with 24 misdemeanor counts of violating the state law governing secondhand dealer licenses. Ollariu is licensed as a secondhand metal dealer, a certification governed by the Monroe County Tax Collectors Office. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services regulates pawnshops. Records kept by that office indicate there are nine pawnshops in the Florida Keys with active licenses.Ollariu was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center and released on his own recognizance with no bond, according to Sheriffs Office records; he hasnt been assigned a court date.Herrin said Ollariu was using an improperly calibrated scale to weigh the items being sold and not holding the merchandise he purchased for the required 15 days, both violations of state requirements. Herrin reminded those in the secondhand and pawn business to comply with all record-keeping requirements.He reportedly didnt follow transaction lawBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comLAW ENFORCEMENT OLLARIUCouple indicted for black-market fishAccusations of a black-market trade in small sharks and big angelfish from the Florida Keys brought federal charges against two Broward County residents and their aquariumsupply business, says an indictment released Feb. 7.Walter R. Bloecker and Lila M. Bloecker, both of the Aquatic Trading Co. in Pompano Beach, were indicted in November by a federal grand jury on three counts charging that they conspired to acquire and sell nurseshark pups taken without permits, and oversized angelfish, to a Michigan buyer.The fish were illegally harvested by divers in the Florida Keys, says the indictment.The indictment charges the Bloeckers knowingly sold 10 young nurse sharks that were taken without required federal permits to deal in sharks. It alleges Walter Bloecker also offered the buyer several monsterangelfish larger than the maximum size limit of 8 inches for the species. Seven angelfish (queen, blue and gray) were sold, court papers say.Both Lila Bloecker and Walter Bloecker could face up to five years in prison on each of the three counts if convicted, according to a penalty sheet. The Aquatic Trading Co. could be fined $500,000.Attempts to contact the Bloeckers through Aquatic Trading were not successful. The names of Keys divers who supplied the fish were not listed in the indictment, but at least one was known to the grand jury as Individual 1. Similarly, the Michigan buyer was described as Individual 2.In discussing the deal, Bloecker was reported to have told both the Keys fish-collector and the Michigan buyer that Bloecker could cover his possession and sale of the nurse-shark pups using false paperwork which made it appear he had imported shark pups from Nicaragua.In all, Aquarium Trading paid the collector $1,085 for the 17 fish that were sold to the Michigan buyer for $3,700, says the indictment signed by Assistant U.S. State Attorney Thomas Watts-Fitzgerald. The deals reportedly were arranged by telephone between June and early October 2012. When the fish collector delivered the seven angelfish and two nurse sharks in August, Walter Bloecker directed the seller to invoice the sharks as moray eels, the indictment says. The U.S. District Court sealed the November indictment after the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami said the named defendants may flee and the safety of certain witnesses could be compromised should knowledge of this indictment become public. The case will by handled by U.S. District Court Judge James Lawrence King. Docket information was not available at press time.CRIME FRONTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comThe Lower Keys Womens Club,represented by President Abby Oglesbee (right),presents the Florida Keys Community College Foundation,represented by Amber Ernst-Leonard,a check for $4,200.The money was raised at the clubs Feb.8 Mad Hatters Tea Party fashion show.The money goes into the foundations Lower Keys Womens Club Nursing Scholarship Fund.SCHOLARSHIP DONATION identified for it, City Manager Roger Hernstadt said.He said money could be found if certain city projects are cancelled or come in under budget, but the council has yet to direct staff to do so.Conceptually, I think everyone likes the idea. But at this point its just an idea, he said. Ramsay said the Sheriffs Office has done cleanups at the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Gardens, Harry Harris Park in Key Largo, Rotary Park on 75th Street in Marathon, and a stretch of U.S. 1 in Islamorada between the Whale Harbor and Snake Creek bridges.He also noted a two-mile stretch of U.S. 1 around mile markers 78 and 79 where many visitors stop along the highway to camp, fish and swim along the shoreline.Day-trippers come and leave their trash there between the 78 and 79 mile marker, he said. Ramsay said the focus isnt solely on problem areas. Like [mile marker] 78 and 79; we dont have a crime problem there, but 15th [Street] its more intensive patrols and weve already talked about that, he said. You have to pick and choose needs. Fifteenth Street needs maintenance and constant presence from our officers.Ramsay wants community organizations to suggest areas that need cleaning.Ramsay: Pick and choose needsFrom Fence,1A

The Key West City Commission is expected to decide tonight whether to go forward with a long-planned development plan that would add a two-story restaurant to the hustle and bustle of tourist-filled Mallory Square. In 2010, the commission put out to bid plans to put a restaurant on the site, which was a pizza place back in 1999 but has since fallen into disrepair and turned into a homeless hangout.Local restaurateur Joe Walsh won the bid but the redevelopment was caught up in a legal battle with the owners of the neighboring Westin Key West Resort and Marina, who objected to the plan.That came to an end in December when judges with the Third District Court of Appeal upheld the design parameters proposed. Now its up to the City Commission to execute a major development plan agreement with Walsh and, sitting as the Board of Adjustment, decide on a variance request. Walshs plan calls for a 156-seat, 2,344-square-foot, two-story restaurant thats more than 33 feet tall, eight feet more than the citys 25foot height limit. With those approvals, itll be up to the city to negotiate a leasehold with Walsh for the Mallory Square real estate projected to be worth more than $300,000 per year. The entire design draws in the former restaurant and surrounding deck areas, along with the Hospitality House, a welcome center and the historic cable hut, which was used to store telephone lines that ran from Key West to Cuba. Mallory Square hosts a nightly sunset celebration complete with food and craft vendors and various performers and artists, along with a lot of tourists.Walsh owns Red Fish Blue Fish, Jack Flats, Carolines, Fogartys, Mangoes and T.G.I. Fridays, which is currently closed. The proposed name of the new eatery is the Mallory Fish Co.The City Commission meets tonight beginning at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall in Key West. Immediately following, the commission will reconvene as the Board of Adjustment.

It was basically that if a destination guide sign is installed on a mast arm, the driver wont have time to make necessary maneuvers for a lane change.They went on to say our existing signs [on the ground] are inappropriate. For anybody to come up to me and tell me that its OK to have a street sign, but if you have a beach sign its not going to give them enough time ... theres something wrong with these people, he said.Ramsay floated the idea in late November to place signs on the mast arms where U.S. 1 intersects with Sombrero Beach Road and Coco Plum Drive. The signs would say the name of the beach and have a directional arrow. Fellow council members approved Ramsays motion, which was aimed at encouraging as many visitors to city beaches as possible. He said visitors frequently ask directions to the public beaches.Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Daniel Samess submitted a letter to the city promoting the concept. The DOT response letter says existing signs along the northbound and southbound lanes be replaced.We recommend the existing signs be removed from the current sign assemblies and new signs and sign assemblies be installed at a more appropriate location to mitigate your concerns of any driver missing the turn to reach Sombrero Beach, it says.Ramsay said hes reached out to DOTDistrict 6 Secretary Gus Pego and plans to discuss the issue with fellow council members at the Feb. 26 agenda. If the answer is still no, [the discussion] will include seeing what kind of new signage we want and where we would want it, he said.Meanwhile, City Manager Roger Hernstadt said a pair of long-awaited entrance signs modeled after Sombrero Light six miles offshore of Marathon in the Atlantic could be installed within 30 days.The council approved the replica lighthouses in December 2011, but Hernstadt said issues with DOTpermitting have held up their installation.

FPLplans Turkey Point confabPlans for new nuclear reactors at Florida Power and Lights Turkey Point plant will be laid out for local water managers Feb. 27 in Tavernier. FPLs senior director for Miami project development will speak with Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board members at the FKAAs regular meeting, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative complex at mile marker 91.6. FPLproposes to cool two additional nuclear reactors at Turkey Point with treated wastewater from MiamiDade County. In case the 90 million gallons of cooling water needed daily is not available from Miami-Dades wastewater system, FPLseeks to draw a similar amount from a saltwater lens beneath Biscayne Bay for up to 60 days a year.Environmentalists, national park managers and the FKAA have raised questions about whether drawing saltwater from below Biscayne Bay could harm the Biscayne Aquifer, the source of most fresh water for South Florida, including the Keys.FPLmanagers say the backup collector wells are specifically designed, and confirmed by extensive modeling, to have no adverse environmental impact. The real issue for us is whether this could affect saltwater intrusion into the Biscayne Aquifer rather than causing a drawdown of the aquifer itself, said FKAAExecutive Director Kirk Zuelch.In a similar vein, MiamiDade water managers are questioning an Everglades restoration project that might divert too much water from a well field that supplies MiamiDade County with much of its drinking water, the Miami Herald reported Sunday.The Everglades plan seeks to divert fresh water from flood-control canals into the historic River of Grass flow. However, a proposed underground seepage barrier along Tamiami Trail could lower flow into MiamiDades well field, computer models show. We have very serious concerns at this point, a Miami-Dade resources manager told the Herald Zuelch said he will ask the FKAAs engineering staff to examine the projects effect on the Keys well field at Florida City. Miami-Dades main well field is several miles northeast of Florida City, he noted.Tavernier session zeroes in on reactorsUTILITIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control District could be in the market for a new Lower Keys operational facility after the district boards Thursdays meeting in Marathon. The meeting agenda includes an item to approve sending out a request for qualifications to hire a Realtor for exploration of Lower Keys operational facility locations.The move is in response to the city of Key Wests plan to potentially force the district off its longtime city-owned College Road parcel in favor of a 24-hour homeless shelter. The Mosquito Control lease expires in May 2014.District Director Michael Doyle told board members last month that Key West officials were encouraging us to look at other options. He could not be reached for comment Tuesday. Mosquito Control Board Chairman Bill Shaw has already been exploring the idea of constructing office space in unused portions of the districts 107th Street office in Marathon. Doyle has said any move would need to be complete before the beginning of heavy season next year. Hes said the district needs to be operational by March of next year, wherever that may be. Other agenda items include:Aresolution allowing commissioners to voluntarily adjust their own salaries.Commissioner Jack Bridges suggested the idea during a discussion regarding a 10 percent pay cut for the board.The cut went through last month, but Bridgesidea is for commissioners to adjust their own pay provided its not higher than the highest paid board member.An update on the filming and broadcast of district monthly meetings. Commissioner Phil Goodman has been pushing the idea, but it was decided last month not to pay floridakeys.com roughly $50 monthly to live-stream public meetings in favor of an inhouse system. The base fee would have been $35 per month, plus $3.50 per month for each gigabyte of bandwidth used during viewing. The bill was not expected to be more than $50 per month. The commission elected to have its own staff record meetings and upload them after the fact to the district website. The website hits for the meetings will be monitored for several months to determine interest before determining whether to pay to live-stream them.

Detectives in the borough of New Milford, N.J., are commending Keys officers for nabbing Richard Scrivani, 23, who they say was able to evade capture on Feb. 2 after hitting an officer there with his car in part because of snowy weather. The police down there did a really good job getting him, said Detective Lt. Richard Ramaci of the New Milford Police Department. Its great somebody caught him. Sheriffs Office deputies say Scrivani ran away from them around 1:20 a.m. after they asked him why he was hanging out at the Trade Winds Plaza at mile marker 101.4 oceanside. Agency spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said Scrivani tripped during the chase and was ordered to stay on the ground. When he got up, Deputy Matthew ONeill shot him with his Taser but the devices electronic barbs didnt go through the jacket Scrivani wore and he ran away again, Herrin said. ONeill tackled Scrivani and the two men fought until two more deputies arrived. Herrin said Scrivani gave ONeill a false name when he first questioned him. After they subdued him, they found his real New Jersey drivers license, along with a cigarette pack containing the prescription painkiller Oxycodone, the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax, crack cocaine and a small metal pipe.Herrin said Scrivani admitted he smoked crack about 10 minutes before his initial encounter with ONeill.In New Jersey, Ramaci said a clerk at a drug store in nearby Dumont caught Scrivani stealing items and tried to physically stop him from leaving, but Scrivani overpowered the employee. Because the altercation became violent, Scrivani went from facing a shoplifting charge to a strong-arm robbery charge, Ramaci said. The clerk was able to give a description of Scrivanis car to 911 operators, and two New Milford police officers spotted the vehicle. Scrivani struggled with one of the officers who tried to pull him out of his 2001 four-door Audi, but Scrivani was able to break free and get back into the car. The other officer tried to grab Scrivani as he sped off, but the car struck him in the arm. He was treated for minor injuries. ANew Jersey fugitive task force comprising state, local and county law enforcement is seeking to extradite Scrivani, who is in jail in Key West. He is wanted by New Milford police on felony aggravated assault on a police officer, vehicular assault, and eluding and resisting arrest charges. He will be held on $95,000 bond when he is returned without the option of being sprung with 10 percent of the bail, Ramaci said. Scrivani is also wanted on shoplifting charges by police in the city of Hackensack. State Attorney Catherine Vogel said since New Jersey officials are seeking extradition, her office would likely compare with her New Jersey counterparts which agency has the best case. But her office would probably prosecute Scrivani here. Then they could have him, Vogel said. His Keys arraignment is set for 9:15 a.m. March 5 before Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia.Charge there: Running over police officerBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comCRIME FRONT SCRIVANIBug board looks for new digsLower Keys investigated for new siteBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL

EDITORIALWheres the governance?LETTERS TO THE EDITORPython numbers overblownFor years, I have been writing and speaking in the media, questioning the so-called experts about the so-called python problem. Finally, after more than 10 years on this issue, we had a state-sponsored hunt that came up short after federal biologists claimed there are as many as 100,000 pythons in the Everglades. In 10 years, they claim to have captured slightly more than 300 pythons but do not give public information and coordinates as to where they were found.In the first day of the monthlong Python Challenge, no pythons were captured by 800 licensed hunters. By the end of the first week, only 21 had been captured. By the end of the month, more than 1,100 hunters had managed to capture only 68. One thing is clear: Either we are very bad hunters or 100,000 pythons is a real exaggeration.Frank Resillez Key LargoFour-lane the StretchI would like to know how the Florida Department of Transportation decides what highway repairs and improvements to make. I would like to know the rational behind spending $875,000 to install eight miles of fencing along the south side of the 18-Mile Stretch from mile marker 108 to mile marker 116 when the same stretch of highway between mile marker 108 and mile marker 110 is caving in again and constantly being patched because the road bed was not properly constructed in the remodeling a few years ago. Also, the southbound lanes of U.S. 1 between mile marker 106 and mile marker 100 are turning into a washboard because of asphalt cracking. The reports say the fence is to protect wildlife from crossing the road. But most of this fencing in this area abuts the bay, not dry land. My suggestion would be lets start protecting human life and complete four-laning this stretch of road that should have been done 20 years ago. Howard Gelbman Key LargoKeys help with successI came to Florida from Southern California to manage a new private school in 1997. It was quite a shock coming to the Keys, which were hot, humid, buggy and sparse in nature, or so I thought at that time. I was young and tasked with what seemed like an impossible job, with few resources in an unfamiliar territory. That first year, I lost 40 students and 10 out of 12 staff members. My contract was for two years and it was questionable on whether Id complete the length of that term.Sixteen years later, that school, Treasure Village Montessori, is now public, A-rated, high-performing, accredited, has a voluntary prekindergarten through eighth program with a healthy wait list, and even has healthier finances.Collectively, it is thriving, and so am I, having achieved more than I dreamed possible.It has been an amazing journey for me and I feel lucky I took that risk long ago and moved to the Keys. Ive learned that creating a life full of friends, fun and professional success, although never easy, is within reach if you are willing to work hard and put yourself out there. Learning from the many mistakes, trials and tribulations that have come along also seem to be a key factor in the recipe for my success, and certainly I have faced many during my time here. For me, though, it is true what they say: Time heals all if you let it.So it is with a heavy heart that I will be leaving the Keys and my long, fulfilling post as principal at Treasure Village Montessori at the end of this school year. I am headed off to my next chapter with the most incredible sense of appreciation and the most indelible memories. I want to thank so many who have contributed to the quality of my life and achievements. I feel blessed to have had so much success here and will always have a special place in my heart for the beautiful Florida Keys. Kelly Astin IslamoradaSupport FIRM financiallyRecent news coverage about Citizens Property Insurance Corp. in Monroe County is as important to condominium owners as their annual property tax rate since it affects the yearly cost of insurance on your dwelling. Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe has saved every property owner in the Keys hundreds of dollars over the past six years by disputing unwarranted rate increases by Citizens. Every condominium association has been saved thousands of dollars on windstorm policies over the same six years because of FIRMs efforts. Property owners in the Keys should be aware that the active individuals who continue to due battle for proper rates on windstorm insurance are unpaid volunteers who travel to Tallahassee to convince the Legislature to make Citizens correct the insurance rates for all of us. I urge every condominium association to donate at least $100 to FIRM to support its efforts on our behalf. Gene Kibbe MarathonEnjoy the artworkEveryone has seen the beautiful mural Wyland has done at Kmart. But we have a new mural in town that is just as special. The new Marathon Veterinary Hospital office (old Boaters World) building has just had a beautiful mural added to the side of its building. It is very unique and more so since it was done by a Marathon High graduate, Yoland OFarill. Go and take a look at the many creatures in this painting and rejoice that we have such a talented artist from our hometown. Suzy Curry Marathon Citizens Property has no issue with raising rates even as it enriches executives, othersCitizens Property Insurance Corp. raised prices for Florida policyholders by 10.8 percent last year. That brought in an additional $250 million. That was on top of $200 million in additional charges from a controversial re-inspection program that hit more than 250,000 homeowners with higher premiums. Combined, thats $450 million in new revenue for a state-run insurer that claims $15 billion held in reserves isnt enough. While all this was going on, Citizenstop executive was passing out big fat raises like a kid in a candy store, according to a report in Sundays Miami Herald .Citizens President Barry Gilway doled out $2.1 million in across-the-board, 3 percent salary increases for employees. Adding salt to the wound, the Herald reported that he also gave top executives raises in excess of 10 percent.This at the same time state employees havent had a raise in six years. The companys chief financial officer got a $31,000 pay hike shortly after she was tagged for excessive travel spending in an inspector generals report. Citizensgeneral counsel, Dan Sumner, got a $25,000 raise just days after the companys internal investigators were fired after they blew the whistle on large severance packages that implicated Sumner among other company insiders. Later, a report by the independent Office of Insurance Regulation found that Citizens had spent $604 million on contracts with private vendors, often in no-bid deals and without pushing for more competitive price, the Herald reported. State regulators said these deals with private vendors ate up 20 cents out of every $1 paid to Citizens by policyholders. When will this madness stop? Even Gov. Rick Scott has lost patience with the way this insurer of last resort has been operating, ordering his own inspector general to examine the firings of the internal auditors and reports about lavish spending and contract abuses.On Friday, Citizens announced new (it said stricter) policies for contracts with outside vendors. But it has yet to explain how Citizens managed to mistakenly give $2.5 million to another insurance company and then had to take it back when news media and even lawmakers began asking questions about the takeout deal.Some takeout. Why should Florida property owners be paying the tab for such incompetent big spenders? Its long past time for the governor and Cabinet to take action and clean up the mess at Citizens Property Insurance Inc. and its incompetent governing board.Miami Herald photo by PETER ANDREW BOSCHPaul Shannon (left) receives his award Sunday for longest python caught by an unlicensed hunter it was 14 feet,3 inches;and Brian Barrows (right) for the most caught,six.The Python Challenge awards ceremony hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was Sunday at Zoo Miami.

School celebrates its presidentFlorida Keys Community College President Jonathan Gueverra will celebrate his formal inauguration Thursday through Saturday and the college has a full slate of events scheduled. College spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard explained that although Gueverra has been on the job since July, its typical for six to eight months of planning before the ceremony. Scheduled events include a Thursday night cocktail reception at the Mile Marker 88 restaurant in Islamorada, installation ceremony Friday beginning at 6 p.m. at the Tennessee Williams Theater on the Stock Island campus, and Saturday community day, also on Stock Island, featuring music, academic showcases and other activities. Visit www.fkcc.edu for more information. Gueverra, who came to Monroe County as the former chief executive officer of the Community College of the District of Columbia, is the colleges sixth president. He earns $180,000 per year under a three-year contract.Three days of events are plannedKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEKeynoter Staff State suspends license lawAnew law requiring foreign visitors to have international driving permits to drive in Florida will not be enforced because it violates an international treaty, highway safety officials said Friday.During the 2012 legislative session, the Florida Legislature amended the law, requiring foreign visitors to have an international driving permit usually priced $15 to $25 to drive lawfully in Florida. Foreign drivers without the permit translating their license information into English and nine other languages could have been arrested for driving without a license.Though the law went into effect Jan. 1, it did not get widespread attention until foreign journalists recently started asking questions. The story quickly spread in Canada, prompting worried calls and lines at some offices of the Canadian Automobile Association.Honestly, some days I just shake my head at the insanity around us, wrote Jim Byers, the Toronto Star s travel editor, on his blog. For a state so dependent on tourism, this is unbelievably stupid.Late Thursday, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said the requirement may violate the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffic.International treaties sign by the U.S. take precedence over state laws, the department said, and ruled that the Florida Highway Patrol would hold off enforcing violations until the law was clarified, according to a statement.Visit Florida was concerned that the law could have impacted visitors and deterred tourists, said spokeswoman Kathy Torian. In 2011, about 12.6 million foreigners visited Florida, according to the agency. Were just relieved that this was acted on so quickly as it came to the attention of state officials, Torian said. So visitors, especially from the U.K. and Canada, as they come on their spring breaks next week, will have no concerns as far as this is related. Though the new law also would have affected car rentals, rental-car companies may not have even been aware the law had changed six weeks ago.Hertz, for example, has not been requiring foreign renters to have international driving permits, said spokeswoman Paula Rivera. So the suspension makes no difference.It didnt have an effect upon us, she said. Visitors who drive in Florida still must have a valid license from another U.S. state or territory or from their country of residence. Harry Oberman, a retired telecommunications professional from Quebec who spends much of the winter in South Florida, said he worries that the law might still be enforced as long as its on the books. Its a concern being expressed by fellow Canadians, he said in an interview from Hallandale Beach.I was worried, the truth be said, Oberman said. Because Im a very lawful guy.

Younger veterans still struggleTwo months after completing his five-plus years as an Army medic, Dan Huber is still looking for a job. And while hes had some promising interviews, he has no assurances the search will end soon. Thats given him some insight that he shares with some of his buddies back at Fort Polk in Louisiana: Dont wait until youve left the military to determine how youll make ends meet as a civilian.Ive told them: Hey, man, you guys have really got to start planning months and months in advance. Its not just planning for interviews. Its planning to make sure youll be afloat in this time period, which you dont know how long will take, said Huber, 26, of Waukesha, Wis.Although veterans as a whole have a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, younger veterans who served in the years following the Sept. 11 attacks are having a much harder time finding work. The unemployment rate for veterans between 18 and 24 exceeded 20 percent last year. It was also in double digits for those 25-34. The unemployment rate for both age groups was higher than for their non-veteran peers and much higher than the national average. The job problems for younger vets have continued despite a wide range of private and public efforts. Congress approved tax credits for companies that hire veterans. Federal agencies stepped up their preferential hiring of vets. Many thousands are taking advantage of a generous package of educational benefits instead of entering the job market. Companies such as WalMart, General Electric and many others announced programs designed to hire more veterans. And organizations like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have helped put on hundreds of job fairs around the company. Kevin Schmiegel, a retired lieutenant colonel who spent years trying to get young Marines to re-enlist, says the youngest vets are making a couple of critical mistakes when it comes to searching for a job. With little job experience outside the military, many cant explain how the skills they learned in the military translate to the private sector, said Schmiegel, now executive director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes program. The program has helped more than 14,000 veterans land jobs and will be finetuning its focus over the coming to year to help younger vets, as well as military spouses. Trooper Deon Cockrell, military liaison for the Texas Department of Public Safety, had a similar take at a recent job fair in Oklahoma City. He said the discipline and skills acquired during military service translate well to a career in law enforcement.Alot of them dont know that theyre eligible, Cockrell said. They can walk from uniform to uniform.Congress tried to help with the transition to civilian life. Since November 2011, departing service members are required to attend various workshops designed to help them with such things as how to write effective resumes and cover letters and improve their interview skills. Previously, the training was voluntary, which greatly lessened participation rates. I definitely wasnt focused on it, and I wasnt prepared for such a lengthy ordeal that is applying for a real, sustainable job, said Huber, who served in Baghdad in 2008. Curtis Coy, an undersecretary at the Veterans Affairs Department, said expanded educational benefits are playing an important role in lowering the unemployment rate as hundreds of thousands of veterans attend college through a program that covers tuition and fees, housing, books and relocation expenses.Jobs scene improves but still toughBy KEVIN FREKING and TIM TALLEYAssociated Press Wednesday,February 20,2013 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com NOTICE OF APPLICA TION ASSIST ANCE FOR SEWER CONNECTION Leslie Robinson of Meridian Community Services Group, Inc. will be holding special sessions in Marathon at City Hall to assist homeowners who would like to apply for sewer connection financial assistance.

Business has definitely been good. Overseas travel was especially strong, with the number of foreign travelers surpassing 10 million for the first time, a 9 percent increase over 2011. Canadian visitors represented more than a third of that total, with 3.6 million Canadian tourists making the trek in 2012, a 7.3 percent increase over the year before. Welcoming 2 million more visitors in 2012 marks the second consecutive record year for tourism in the Sunshine State, Scott said in a statement. With the hospitality sector ending the year up 30,300 jobs, its clear that more visitors means more jobs for Florida familiesPast year is apparently record yearNews Service of FloridaTOURISMChambe r i n stalls office r sThe Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce installed its new officers on Jan. 26 and also handed out its annual business awards.Installed by Monroe County Mayor George Neugent at ZaZa Pizzeria Napoletana on Sugarloaf Key were Steve Miller, president; Kim Trice, five vice president; Cathy Talcott, second vice president; Susan Miller, membership vice president; Sheila Cantler, treasurer; Leslie Valant, parliamentarian; and Carole Stevens, secretary.Other directors are Marie Boyett, Debbie Novak, Judy Rowley, Kelly Kline, Josh Eitel and Gary Andelin.

Story, 4B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyleDolphins sweep the weekendTeam speed, quality defense and two solid starting pitching performances helped the Marathon High School baseball team to a pair of road wins over the weekend in Fort Myers and Immokalee. The Dolphins defeated Evangelical Christian School Saturday morning, 4-3, before heading south and shutting out Immokalee, 3-0, in the evening. Senior transfer student Todd Picariello pitched 6.1 innings in the opening game, allowing three runs on four hits, five walks and three strikeouts. Three of the walks came in the final frame. Hes been with us from the get-go, but had some injuries hes been dealing with, coach Luis Leal said. We got the all-clear and gave him his first start on Saturday. He had no nerves and recovered well when he did get in trouble. For his first start, he did a great job. Not to be outdone, No. 1 starter Kyle Pierce followed with a 10-strikeout complete game in the nightcap, allowing only two hits and no walks. Leal said Pierce had every pitch working to perfection against a big and fast Immokalee team.Fastball, curveball, change up putting it wherever he wanted it. Kevin McKeon called every pitch behind the plate. This is the first time in 10 years Ive let the catcher call pitches like that. Every call he makes has been the right call, he said.Throw in 15 stolen bases and just one defensive error over the two games, and the Dolphins showed how to win doing the little things. Against the Sentinels in the morning, the Dolphins scored one run each in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings to take a 4-1 lead into the last inning.It was just guys getting on, stealing and making something happen. Evangelical Christian was a very good team.

Soon, all two dozen took on the look of batting-practice balls, but these were the ones that players such as Conch shortstop Darren Miller would soon swing at against Champagnat Catholic.Miller, standing nearby, was asked if 10 in the morning is a good time for a game. Anytime is a good time, he said between sips of a Pepsi. Miller was wearing the Conchsnew dark gray pants, which had a single red stripe. These are the style, he said. He pinpointed the color: graphite.Fans began to trickle in, passing the 11-time Cafe, the concessions stand where Menendezs father, John, was plucking not baseballs but eggs from a carton. Bacon and eggs and fried rice, too, he said, predicting the mornings favorites. With about 75 spectators settled in the gray metal grandstand, the game, after a half-hour delay because of a late-arriving umpire, unfolded with three scoreless innings. Pitching for Key West was lefthander Brandon Presley, a 6-foot-5 sophomore with an exclamationpoint build and a control problem (five walks). In the first row of the stands, Presleys father, Ronnie, in a letter carriers uniform and four inches shorter than his son, trained a video camera on the mound.In the top of the fourth, Champagnat broke throughHurler mows down Lions in 2-1 victoryBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEThe ConchsSteven Wells (7) and Joey Figueora jump in celebration after Wells scored the winning run in Key Wests 2-1 victory Saturday.

In the second period, Brindley tied it at 2-2 with a reversal. In the third period, Brindley got a takedown and stayed on top.The kid was really good technically, Jimenez said. He rode us out and Angelo didnt have enough to get out. The atmosphere drained him a little bit. Ive seen it before kids get so worked up.Guieb couldnt be reached for comment, but his father, Junior Guieb, said his son was upset immediately after the match, walking away before returning to shake Brindleys hand and his coacheshands.

The captains in the Upper Keys also have snook, redfish, sea trout and the occasional tarpon as long as its not too chilly.For those salty enough to get out oceanside, the sailfish and the king mackerel responded to the cold front by biting a bit better than prior.The yellowtail snapper bite on the reef remains good, with the most consistent depth range at 50 to 70 feet.

The evening game was a pitchers duel, Leal said. Pierce struck out 10, while the Immokalee staff fanned 11 Dolphin batters. The Dolphins used their speed to create runs, starting with one in the top of the first. Almodovar singled and reached third on an error. He scored on a passed ball during OFarrills at-bat to make it 1-0. The Dolphins scored twice more in the fifth to give Pierce all the breathing room he needed. Picariello walked, stole second base and scored on an RBI single by Sean Roussin. Roussin then stole second and third base with two outs as Almodovar came to bat. He walked, and Leal had him intentionally get into a rundown so Roussin could attempt to steal home before the third out was made. The strategy worked and Marathon went up 3-0. Almodovar was 1-for-1 with two walks and a run scored, while Roussin was 1for-2 with a run scored, RBI and two stolen bases.

for a 1-0 lead on a passed ball after a double and single, ending Presleys day. (Ronnie left shortly afterward to tend to his route.) Menendez brought in freshman second baseman Gregory Veliz to pitch and few could have expected the show he would put on. He struck out the first batter he faced, then walked Nosomy Diaz. But after a wild pitch, Veliz whirled and picked Diaz off second base to end the inning. In the first three innings, the Conchs were hitless against hard-throwing Abraham Figueira and had not gotten a ball out of the infield. Things stayed bleak in the bottom of the fourth, but with two outs and Figueira a strike from ending the inning, Andrew Freeman bounced a single into left field.After a wild pitch, Freeman stole third and then came home with the tying run when Veliz singled to center.With the score 1-1, the Lions were helpless the rest of the way against Veliz, who struck out eight of the final 11 batters he faced and he picked another runner off second in the sixth. In the bottom of the seventh, the bright morning had turned into a cloudy, cool afternoon, and everyone was eager to go home. With one out, Steven Wells singled and advanced to second when Miller walked. Hugo Valdes then lifted a pop fly that fell in shallow right field for a hit. Wells, who had stopped at third, streaked home when the right fielders throw sailed wide and the undefeated Conchs celebrated their second consecutive victory. Afterward, Veliz, who had donned a jacket, said, When I was warming up, I knew Id have a good game. Menendez anointed the 5-11, 185-pounder as a bulldog. He reminds me of Orel Hershiser, the coach said, invoking the name of a Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher whose heyday in the s came many years before Veliz and his fresh-faced teammates ever dreamed of pulling on graphite pants.Veliz was confidentFrom Conchs,1B Wednesday,February 20,2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com The Snow Family Foundation The Gentlemens Circle THANK YOUfrom The Domestic Abuse ShelterMonroe County Florida Akey part in producing a movement of men committed to ending violence against women.Without our Partners, the Call To Men 2-day training would not be possible!

Oscar movies are hits, too, this yearHow accurate is Zero Dark Thirty? Is Lincoln an epic of historical recreation or a high school history lesson? What did you think of Django Unchained? Can we get Anne Hathaway something to eat, already? As a crop, this years nine best picture nominees has been one of the most talkprovoking, Op-Ed-generating bunches in recent Oscar history. From Argo to Life of Pi, theyve largely been popular at the box office, too. This year, the question Have you seen ...? has been frequent, and often the reply has been positive. The movies have been debated, criticized, mulled over and tweeted. Above all, theyve been relevant. That hasnt always been the case, particularly in years where most best-picture candidates and this is no slight to their worthiness have struggled to surpass $100 million at the domestic box office. Last year, of the nine nominees, only The Help managed to pass that threshold. This year, five have (Argo, Les Miserables, Lincoln, Django and Life of Pi) and two more are very close (Zero Dark Thirty and Silver Linings Playbook). Many of this years nominees have done particularly well overseas. Ang Lees Life of Pi has proved an international juggernaut, approaching $600 million worldwide. The most heartwarming story of this years Oscars isnt necessarily the 9-yearold star of Beasts of the Southern Wild, Quvenzhane Wallis. It could very well be the pervasive success of serious films for adults. Part of what makes this years class remarkable is that they arent obvious boxoffice draws. Westerns are supposed to be dated. Excessively detailed stories about congressional politics arent usually popcorn-munching hits. Religious-minded films centered on an unknown young actor and a digital tiger adrift on a boat dont typically steamroll like a superhero blockbuster. The movies worked, said Harvey Weinstein, cochairman of the Weinstein Co., which released Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained. He called the best-picture nominees the best collection of movies weve had in 20 years and claimed the studios have a new boldness to just go for it. The good news is theres a robust body of moviegoers seeing quality films. Thats the real story, says Peter Guber, the veteran producer and chairman of Mandalay Entertainment who produced the best-picture-winning Rain Man, among others. I have great hope that the films this year that did all this business will spawn more adult films and more films that have thoughtful content. I hope that will be the case, I really do, says Guber. But if you look at the lineup for this year, what youll see is sequels, remakes, re-dos, prequels and franchises. That idiosyncratic movies by talented filmmakers from Ang Lee to Quentin Tarantino can be so lucrative, albeit not on the scale of the $1.1 billion-making Skyfall, suggests that risktaking can pay off. This Oscars batch has vibrancy, with films that have provoked audiences. Kathryn Bigelow crafted Zero Dark Thirty as an almost documentary-like early draft of history, leading up to the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. She intended, she said, to ask the audience to lean into their own conclusions and, boy, have they. No movie has been more hotly debated, from the corridors of Washington to the multiplexes of suburbia.Blockbusters dont always get Oscar nodBy JAKE COYLEAssociated Press KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Wednesday,February 20,2013 LIBBY YORKAccompanied by John SimonTO PARIS WITH LOVEFriday, February 22 at 8pmThe Studios of Key WestA Valentine from an American in Paris to the city of love.

Here are some of the nominations for Oscar-worthy examples of screen cuisine, along with a trio of cocktail recipes, to help you toast this years winners on Sunday in those other categories, like Best Picture. The Oscars air at 7 p.m. on ABC. Fabio Viviani, Top Chef Season 5 fan favorite and host of Yahoos Chow Ciao, took a practical approach for his choice, opting for the Goodfellas scene that shows Paulie slicing garlic with a razor. What a way to get the perfect thin garlic! You can almost smell the garlic and tomatoes and meat cooking in the scene.His takeaway? Doesnt matter if youre a criminal or just a normal guy, there is nothing better than breaking bread with friends and family and sharing food. Add some vino and boom!, that is whats most important in life.No one suggested scenes from classic food movies like Big Night or Tampopo, perhaps not surprising considering that those kind of films dont exactly qualify as escapism to a cook.Memorable food scenes are the ones that sneak up on me, in non-food movies, says Colman Andrews, editorial director at TheDaily Meal.com like the old-fashioned bread-baking process shots from The Bakers Wife, a French classic from the 1930s, and Ray Winstone intoning Im gonna ave the calamari, in Sexy Beast. But the food film moment he thinks about most probably perversely, is the scene in Hookwherein the grownup Peter Pan figure (Robin Williams) joins the Lost Boys in a banquet of nonexistent Neverfood.It just seems to say so much about appetite and the joy that the mere thought of food can summon up.Sometimes movies poke fun at the trappings of fine dining and Stephen Barber, executive chef of Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in the Napa Valley, is OK with that. He likes the scene from The Jerk in which a gauche Steve Martin, after first ordering some fresh wine, no more of this old stuff, is horrified to find that his dates plate is covered with snails.Barber makes sure staff looks out for customers who may be baffled by what to do with a particular dish.Michael Mina, a Michelinstarred chef and big movie fan, went for something a little different with his favorite food scene the dialogue between Jules and Vincent as they have breakfast at a diner in Pulp Fiction. The whole scene is so perfect, he says. Vincent offers Jules a piece of bacon and prompts a diatribe against pork that segues into why Jules is planning on retiring as an assassin. Its pure brilliance and classic Tarantino.For his part, Mina has no such qualms. Bacon is that one ingredient that you have to have, he says. Just not too much. Mina jokes that he does a bacon check of restaurant menus in his Mina Group to make sure that the dishes arent going overboard with the tasty breakfast meat. Minas a big breakfast fan in general. In fact, when he was asked to cook for a fancy post-Oscars party in Los Angeles a few years back he agreed on one condition: Im only coming if Im cooking omelettes. Omelettes and Oscars? As they (almost) say in show business, break an egg. Here are two cocktail recipes to add a bit of fizz to your Oscar soiree.Spiced spritzerPinch of cardamom.Pinch of ground star anise.Half a teaspoon rose water.One ounce pomegranate liqueur.Half an ounce Galliano (an Italian liqueur).Seltzer water. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the cardamom, star anise, rose water, pomegranate liqueur and Galliano. Shake well, then strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with seltzer water. Start to finish: 10 minutes. Servings: one.Wild meadowTwo ounces mead (honey wine).One ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur.Once ounce brandy.Fresh berries. In a cocktail shaker with just one ice cube (you should serve the cocktail just cool, not cold), combine the mead, elderflower liqueur and brandy. Strain into a cocktail glass, then garnish with fresh berries. Start to finish: 10 minutes. Servings: One.Paulies garlic method among the memorableBy MICHELLE LOCKEAssociated PressACADEMY AWARDS Associated Press photo by MATTHEW MEADAny of these are great for your Oscar viewing.They are (from left) a glass of citrus bubbly with a small curl of lemon on top,a glass of spiced rose-pomegranate spritzer with a star anise on top,two glasses of sparkling wine,and a glass of wild meadow with berries.The food is canapes and blini.ACADEMY AWARDS KEYSNET.COM
