The truck was a generator truck and had a tank of diesel fuel on it. Several explosions were reported as the truck burned. Tony Martinez, manager of Florida Paving and Trucking, declined comment at the request of detectives.The Sheriffs Office said the man who started the fire is Stuart James Collins, 28, of Raleigh, N.C. Deputy Becky Herrin said Collins and Gonzales might have exchanged words earlier in the night, possibly over a girl.She said witness interviews led detectives to believe Collins is the one who set the fire. Asearch for him as the truck burned and then was extinguished was unsuccessful, but early Friday afternoon, he showed back up at JJs. Its not clear if he went there to drink or to turn himself in to detectives who were still working the scene. After the fire started, JJs was evacuated, with the patrons moved to the Walgreens property across the street from 107th Street.

In a lawsuit to be filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Key West, Tender Loving Care Garden Supply owner Claude Halioua alleges that Cinque, Lucignano, Marathon Planning Director George Garrett and City Manager Roger Hernstadt met, conferred and conspired to keep LuLus from opening a new restaurant and package store in the city of Marathon.LuLus, at U.S. 1 and 75th Street, is on Haliouas nursery property.Cinque and Lucignano called the lawsuit baseless, while Garrett declined to comment on it and Hernstadt did not return a call for comment.Whenever someone doesnt want to follow the rules and you have enough money to hire an attorney, you can go start making false accusations and accuse everyone of everything, Cinque said. Thats pretty much what we have a couple of people doing.Attorney Bob Miller represents Halioua and LuLus. The lawsuit revolves around Halioua and his attempt to obtain whats called a 6COPSRX license from the state Department of Business and Professional Regulation. It allows for onsite hard-liquor sales at a bar or restaurant.Garrett signed off on Haliouas use permit application for the license in October 2011 and again in December 2011. Miller claims that gives Halioua and Sheila Lawyer, his lessee who runs LuLus, the right to sell liquor.Garrett disagreed, saying similar use permits have been signed in the past to help businesses get started with the state application process. That does not preclude having to go through the citys process, Garrett said, referring to notifying adjacent property owners and allowing time for a possible appeal hearing. Just such a hearing is set for 5:30 p.m. Monday at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport because 75th Street resident Michael Dolan appealed. He doesnt live within the required 300foot distance from LuLus to appeal but said hes providedHalioua,Lawyer say Lucignano, Cinque in cahootsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPorter generally receives good marksMonroe County schools Superintendent Mark Porter gets generally good marks as he nears his one-year anniversary leading the School District, most School Board members say.But why he does, they cant recall since their job evaluations, turned in to Porter on June 11, havent been made public despite the School Districts attorneys telling Porter to release them. Porter also hadnt released his self-evaluation as of Friday. Porter was hired Aug. 8, 2012, making $150,000 annually plus benefits on a threeyear contract. He came from a Minnesota school district.Eleven months isnt a long time to have a track record, but Porter has started to make his mark.I will tell you I graded him well on most every aspect, board member Ron Martin said.

But it was not the first.Six years earlier, almost to the day, the deck of a Marathon waterfront restaurant failed, sending seven patrons into shallow water below Castaway off 15th Street. Several were treated for injuries at the scene but none were hospitalized. Diners savor the experience of dinner or drinks at a Florida Keys waterfront restaurant, but inspections of the wooden deck beneath their feet are limited. Its the owners responsibility to keep the property in good repair, said Gerry Albertson, Islamoradas building official. Local building officials throughout Monroe County make inspections to ensure that new or rebuilt commercial decks used for assembly meet strict standards. After that, it largely falls to fire inspectors to check outdoor decks during periodic life-safety inspections of commercial gathering spots. When we do life-safety inspections, anything we see thats glaring or suspicious will be included in the report, said Capt. Jerry Lyman from the Islamorada Fire Rescue Department. We look at all facets of life-safety, not just fire, Lyman said Thursday. But we dont go underneath [the decks] or into the water. Decks by their nature can be dangerous because of the [weight] loading, Monroe County Building Official Jerry Smith said this week. When built over water, the corrosion makes them more dangerous.After the June 13 failure of the wooden deck at Shuckers Bar & Grill, a North Bay Village building official said the 120-foot deck showed concrete had disintegrated around corroded steel pilings under the deck, the Miami Herald reported. The dock apparently had not been inspected in decades.Lyman said Islamorada fire inspectors will report deck problems like loose planks, cracking or a general sponginess, which couldIssue arises from collapse in Miami-DadeCONSTRUCTIONDeck inspections limitedBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comSee Decks,2ASee Fire,2A Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThe deck restaurant at the Dockside Lounge on Sombrero Boulevard in Marathon is being rebuilt and likely to reopen in October.
the city proof he has interest in a separate building that is within 300 feet of LuLus.Dolan said he and neighbors filed the appeal unsolicited and paid $1,500 to do so. The lawsuit suit insinuates Dolan, who is a friend of Cinque, may have appealed at Cinques request.He had nothing to do, nor did any other public official, have anything to do with what Im doing, Dolan said. In fact, Dolan said he and his neighbors support the restaurant and only have issues with its parking lot configuration and want assurances about hours of operation and the level of live music. Garrett said the city has no issues with Haliouas application, either. We support the application; its recommended for approval with no conditions.Sitting on the Planning Commission for Mondays LuLus hearing is Lucignano, who said he denies all of Halioua and Lawyers claims in the lawsuit that he curries favor with local officials by offering them free gym memberships, discounted liquor sales and free meals anddrinks at his restaurant. He did say hes offered free memberships to some people possibly even Miller when he was Lucignanos attorney and discounted memberships to Sheriffs Office deputies and military members. He said thats his right. Its sad, he said. Im just trying to make a living.Defendants deny chargesFrom Suit,1A guished. Board Chairman Andy Griffiths said the average board score came out between three and four. He said he scored Porter high on leadership-related criteria and slightly lower on community relations. Like Martin, board member John Dick said he cant recall specifics of his evaluation, but said his score for Porter averaged around 3.5. Board member Robin Smith-Martin also couldnt recall specifics but said he gave Porter threes, fours and some not applicables. I think hes taking the district in the right direction. You wont see many threes and fours on mine, said board member Ed Davidson, a frequent critic of district operations. I think he has been overly influenced by the old guard to the detriment of some reforms that Id hoped we would pursue.Porters initial decision not to release the evaluations because of what he thought was a state exemption from doing so surprised Griffiths.There is nothing in there to hide, Griffiths said. Asked to weigh in on whether Porter can withhold the evaluations from the public, board attorney Theron Simmons wrote in a memo: While we believe the records may be exempt from disclosure, questions as to the application of existing laws and policies which do not specifically address this issue prompt us to recommend disclosure. Porter didnt return calls for comment. Tensions between Marathon Mayor Mike Cinque and Realtor Bruce Schmitt boiled over at Tuesdays City Council meeting. The two got in a shouting match over comments Schmitt made while the council considered an ordinance that repealed a city law and enacted the Monroe County version of a pilot mooring program for nonliveaboard vessels. Schmitt had every right to address the ordinance, but Cinque intervened when Schmitt, in Cinques opinion, veered far off topic and began urging the city to consider repealing other ordinances, including a law banning package liquor sales within 1,500 feet of a school or other package store. Schmitt has long battled the city to get that law overturned, to no avail. The two argued for a bit and Schmitt ultimately agreed to say his piece during the citizens comments portion of the meeting which came no more than two minutes later.Schmitt has been vocally against the 1,500-foot rule, which has prevented both Publix and Walgreens which he helped develop at U.S. 1 and 55th Street from securing a package license. Both stores are between package stores at the Brass Monkey Lounge and Marathon Liquor & Deli.Hes also been outspoken about the citys stance on the former Overseas Liquor & Lounge building near mile marker 49. Its been precluded from reopening as a package store because of the 1,500-foot rule. On April 10, Schmitt and Cinque met to discuss that rule at Marathon Finance Director Peter Rosascos office because Cinque didnt want to discuss it alone. He said, I know how you get aggravated about that dump next to you, Cinque said. He said you lead the fight to get rid of that 1,500-foot rule and Ill buy the Overseas and clean it up and move the license, Cinque said. Bruce doesnt care who he hurts or what he does to the city as long as he gets a liquor license in Walgreens and Publix, Cinque said. Absolutely not, Schmitt said. I was trying to understand why Mike was taking such a hard stand with the Overseas. I said Id like you to sponsor a discussion on the 1500-foot rule and he refused. Schmitt points to Cinque voting against the 1,500-foot rule as a Planning Commission member in 2006. The reason I went to Mike is when the rule was proposed back in 2006 [by then-Councilman Pete Worthington], it was done behind the scenes. The chairman of the Planning Commission was Mike Cinque and they voted 4-0 against that ordinance. Schmitt said he only told Cinque that the Overseas could be a decent property for someone but that it needs to be sold rather than sit in disrepair. I explained to him where the value is, he said. I said I could buy this myself and make money on it. I did not say I would.

Generally, however, existing decks are not checked regularly. Monroe County also relies on its fire inspectors to alert them to problems. Everybody here is in pretty good shape because of recent reconstruction, Albertson said of Islamoradas half-dozen restaurants or bars with patron decks over water. Every one of the six that I can think of is fairly new, Lyman agreed. The deck at the Lorelei Cabana Bar was rebuilt after Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Smugglers Cove Resort replaced its deck a few years ago after a structural problem. Key Largo and other areas of unincorporated Monroe County apparently have few establishments with decks extending over water. Only the Pilot House comes to mind, Smith said of the restaurant on the Lake Largo harbor. Arestaurant or bar seeking approval to build a new deck over water for assembly use by customers will find it very, very difficult, Smith said. There are restaurants that have beachfront dining because they cant get a permit for a deck, Smith said. Federal flood-insurance rules requiring higher elevations above water for new construction have a lot to do with that, officials said. The state Department of Environmental Protection and other agencies have become more restrictive in issuing needed permits for some structures that extend over state submerged land. Extensive hydrological studies and expensive concrete pilings likely would be required. Hardware attaching decks to pilings must be stainless steel. The Florida Building Code used by Key West mandates that an assembly deck or platform must designed and built to 125 pounds per square foot, with occupancy limited to one person every 5 square feet.Few opportunities left for Keys decksFrom Decks,1ACinque, Schmitt mix it upBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON The players PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.9382 SUN.9383 MON.9280 TUES.9080 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of thunderstorms.

Former Mayor Pete Worthington and two-term incumbent Richard Keating might have an easier road than expected to claim two open seats on the Marathon City Council this November. The two are in line to be elected unopposed on Nov. 5 unless someone pays a $720 fee during the candidate qualifying period from noon Aug. 6 to noon Aug. 13. Allen Pedersen pre-filed to run on July 1, which appeared to assure the seats would at least be contested. But he withdrew from consideration on July 8, one day before the deadline to submit 59 signed petitions to the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office. Pedersen ran for council in 2008, finishing last among eight candidates with just 4.8 percent of the vote. Current council members Dick Ramsay and Ginger Snead, along with Worthington, won that election. Keating is now in line to be re-elected a second straight time without a challenger, while Worthington would return to the dais after one year off. He served three consecutive two-year terms from 2006 through 2012.If elected, Worthington would take the place of outgoing Mayor Mike Cinque, who is finishing out the last of his three consecutive terms.There will be at least two more open seats on the council in November 2014, as Ramsay and Snead will each be termed out. Councilman Chris Bull was elected to his first term last November.Council actionsThe City Council met in regular session Tuesday at the Marathon Government Center and took the following actions: Decided against selling or renting a recently refurbished city-owned threebedroom house at Sombrero Beach. The council is considering options for the property, which was rented by Monroe County Sheriffs Office Sgt. Jake Brady for $1,000 per month for nearly 10 years. Staff gave the council seven options, but the council was cool to selling the property and said renting to the public would mean having to make costly upgrades to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The council appeared to lean toward renting to another deputy at $1,000 monthly or a city employee at market rate (roughly $2,000 per month), or keeping the house available for visiting public officials and city staff during peak city event times. The council is likely to discuss the property further at its July 23 council meeting.The council decided on the phrase Hurry Back for the back side of the citys new Sombrero Light replica welcome signs on each side of town. The front says Welcome. Sea You Soon, Come Back Soon, Stay Longer, Well Sea You and Thanks For Staying With Us were among the options. *Saturday,July 13,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com IF THE POWER GOES OUT WILL YOU BE READY?

U.S. District Court Judge Jose Martinez handed down the sentence to William Britt, 55, of Key West on July 1. On Nov. 8, Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies arrested Britt following a search of his recreational vehicle, parked at the U.S. Navys Sigsbee Park, where he reportedly moved from Cudjoe Key. In it, police said, detectives found the child porn, along with a 20-gauge sawed-off shotgun and a loaded handgun. The U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami says a forensic analysis revealed Britts computers and computerrelated equipment contained thousands of images and movies containing child pornography, which include minor children engaging in sexually explicit conduct. On April 17, Britt pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography and possessing the unregistered firearms. Cops were put onto Britt when his former Cudjoe Key landlord saw child porn in a box as he helped Britt move. The landlord called police.Records provided by the Monroe County School Districts Human Resources Department indicate Britt earned $100 daily substituting at Horace OBryant Middle School, Sugarloaf School, Key West High School, Marathon High School, Poinciana Elementary School, Glynn Archer Elementary School and Gerald Adams Elementary School. He started as a sub in 2010.Superintendent Mark Porter said there is no evidence Britt harmed any children, and that Britt had undergone a successful background check.His landlord saw images as he was movingIN THE COURTS BRITTKeynoter StaffLa Concha change goes to hearingPlans to convert the seventh floor of the Crowne Plaza La Concha hotel at 430 Duval St. in Key West from a popular sunset viewing area and bar into a day spa are scheduled to go through the first step of the public approval process at a Thursday meeting of the Key West Planning Board.Architect Peter Pike, on behalf of the Spottswood family that owns the building, filed plans with the city in February detailing a 4,800square-foot, $1.2 million conversion that would result in six spa treatment rooms replacing the indoor meeting area and bar. The bar and meeting space, used every Friday by the Sunrise Rotary Club, was built in 1987.In his report on the plans, city Senior Planner Brendon Cunningham notes that this is a popular location to the view the sunset, which is the crux of mounting public opposition.In a letter to City Clerk Cheri Smith, Southard Street resident Karen Strecker calls the pending change a serious injustice not only to all the locals and visitors who enjoy going up to the highest point in the Southernmost City, but to the city of Key West itself.Sunsets from the Top [the name of the seventh floor bar] are meant to be shared with all, not just the select few who hold the purse strings.Lynda DeField of Marathon wrote that whenever I have company, I take them to see the fabulous Keys sunset from the Top. I completely support saving this lovely hidden gem.The developer is eyeing a November completion date but that hinges on Planning Board and subsequent Key West City Commission approvals.Opposition has also taken the form of an online petition titled Key West Loves the Top and posted to www .Moveon.org that on Friday had drawn some 1,250 digital signatures from around the country.Cunningham recommends approving the project, saying the plan is in harmony with the general purpose and intent of the land development regulations and will not be injurious to the neighborhood.The 160-room hotel at is managed by Dallas-based Remington Hospitality Services.

HPVis particularly difficult to track, especially since not everyone who gets HPVdevelops the warts characteristic of the virus (a person can have HPVfor years and not even know it).Since the virus can develop literally anywhere on a persons body, condoms, dental dams and other protective gear will only do so much to protect against HPV. All the more reason to vaccinate against HPV, right?Plain and simple: Vaccinating against HPVis vaccinating against cancer.The Florida Department of Health in Monroe County is about to launch a campaign to encourage parents to have their children vaccinated against HPV before they become sexually active. I plan to have my kids vaccinated before school starts next month and hope that other parents will consider doing the same for their kids. Dr. Mark Whiteside Medical director Department of Health Monroe CountySchools superintendent isnt doing the public any good by holding public records close to the vestBy most Monroe County School Board member accounts, Superintendent Mark Porter is doing a generally good job as the Keysfirst-ever board-hired schools chief.But one thing Porter lacks which his three troubled predecessors didnt is transparency. Porter, hired last Aug. 8 for $150,000 annually plus benefits, simply doesnt like allowing the public to view public records. The latest is his job evaluations from board members, and one he performed on himself.The Keynoter had repeatedly asked for the evaluations since they were done and turned in on June 11, but Porter the official keeper of School District records refused to release them, citing Florida Statute 1012.34, which he said appeared to exempt some teacher and administrator records from public review, but not those pertaining to the superintendent.Porters refusal to release the records is troubling. The public those who pay for the schools through taxes and the parents whose children attend them has a right to know how their elected School Board evaluates the person hired to oversee all School District operations.Porter had told us there is a statutory exemption for ongoing evaluations that may apply. That apparently isnt the case especially because the evaluations arent ongoing. Theyre done and complete.Friday, School District Attorney Dirk Smits released a memo saying while we believe the records may be exempt, as there is some question as to the application of the law and policies to superintendents, we should follow the public records law and disclose the materials.This all raises another question: With Porter initially refusing to release the evaluations, where will they be kept? Public employee records are open to public review, so if anyone wants to inspect Porters personnel file, they should find his evaluations in there. Will they? His initial refusal to make the evaluations public follows Porters refusal to release the records of a committee he appointed that ranked the applicants for district director of operations and planning, a job that went to former Naval Air Station Key West Cmdr. Pat Lefere. That committee shortlisted applicants, but Porter interviewed only Lefere. Weve asked for the committees rankings and written comments, but Porter refuses. Why? Then theres the superintendents stubbornness in giving up records related to the reconstruction of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West. Hes had several excuses for why some records arent available, but none of them fly. Porter was brought on board to right a district that was all but sunk due to a finance scandal created by a previous superintendent and that superintendents wife. Seems to us that part of righting the ship is being as transparent as possible. Our evaluation of Porter on that front: Needs major improvement.I freely admit it. I am not a scientist. I am not a water manager. I dont know the alphabet soup of acronyms of Everglades restoration or the names of the canals and water control structures. But I am a South Florida property owner and business person directly affected by water issues. And it doesnt take an advanced degree to understand why environmentalists are so concerned about funding water management district budgets. As a property owner, confidence in water management is a necessity. South Florida abounds with waterfront properties not just on the beach but also on canals, rivers and other waterways. Agorgeous waterfront view increases a propertys value. But it is also a risk. When storms hit, we depend on the water management district to quickly flow water off the property for flood control. As our region copes with sealevel rise in the future, there will be even more threats from flooding. As a property owner, one of the other things you fear is having the water shut off. During the 2011 dry season, West Palm Beach was 22 days away from running out of water for its residents. With increased pressures on our water resources through a growing population, we might be out of water before we are under water. We depend on our public agencies to support adequate water supplies for development in the future.Fortunately, there is a large public agency that is supposed to manage flood control and water supplies, along with ecosystem restoration. It is called the South Florida Water Management District. But in recent years there have been deep cuts to its budget under the guise of cutting out wasteful spending to lower taxes for property owners. The districts governing board is considering decreasing its revenue even more. OK, I get it if an agency is spending freakish amounts of money on things not essential to its mission like lavish conferences in Las Vegas or even golf carts to shuttle people 20 feet in the parking lot. But the cuts in the last few years have been so deep that they are threatening our way of life. The South Florida Water Management District created a spend-down plan from its reserves, but it is quickly being depleted and will be running on fumes. Do we really want to force a public agency to choose between updating levees to hold back flood water or completing a restoration project that supports our future populations water supply? Is it really a bright idea to significantly deplete funding water conservation programs and alternative water supply projects? The South Florida Water Management District is even considering selling off lands acquired for conservation purposes to help fill in the budget gaps. They shouldnt have to be in this position.The ironic thing is that budget cuts are supposed to help property owners from paying more taxes. But instead, it exposes property owners to heightened risks from flooding, water shortages and long-term loss of value. The difference in property tax for the average homeowner is minimal less than the cost of a slice of pizza. That is a small price to pay for certainty in water management.Lida Rodriguez-Taseff is a lawyer in Miami and a member of Audubon Florida. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.GUEST COLUMNWater drives South Floridas economy TASEFFPartying angers neighborsFour neighborhood associations in Lower Matecumbe Key are asking federal regulators and the village of Islamorada to stop offshore-boater partying that they say is destroying the environment and residents quality of life.The neighbors want a roughly five-mile bayside area between mile marker 74 and 79 to be included in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuarys revised management plan. The associations presented a request letter to the Sanctuary Advisory Council at a Tuesday meeting at the Islander Resort. On holiday weekends and throughout the summer, boats congregate and anchor along the grassy and sandy shore in numbers estimated at times to be over 100 boats along a half mile of residential beach front directly adjacent to Port Antigua, White Marlin Beach and Sandy Point shorelines, the letter states. Boat parties in this area extend well into the evening hours. This area is known as Party Beach.The letter signed by the Lower Matecumbe Key Association, the Port Antigua Property Owners Association, the Sandy Point Owners Association and the White Marlin Beach Association says parties involve repeated anchoring and frequent personal watercraft activity.This results in the rapid destruction of the marine habitat and the sea floor, including permanent destruction to the seagrass vegetation. Peter Wawerna, president of the Sandy Point Owners Association, said in an interview he believes most of the revelers come from MiamiDade and Broward counties. Its total congestion and they have complete disregard for the bay bottom, Wawerna said. Wawerna, 65, admittedly says the situation is not new, but it seems to get worse every year. The village placed buoys denoting a no-wake zone within 300 feet of the shore, but Wawerna and his neighbors said the buoys do nothing to curb the partying or damage. But its not likely the celebrations will end soon. The Sanctuarys Shallow Water Wildlife and Habitat Protection Working Group has submitted its recommendations about what Keys areas should receive more federal protection, and Lower Matecumbe Key is not on the list. John Sutter, Islamoradas parks and recreation manager, said hes not sure if the village has authority to stop people from anchoring offshore. Asked if the increase in popularity means there are more arrests there, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Bobby Dube responded: None whatsoever. Its just that more people have found out about it.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADABoards eye on 2014 moneyMoney matters will be on the minds of Monroe County commissioners at their monthly meeting Wednesday in Key West. An overview of the proposed fiscal year 2014 is scheduled soon after the 9 a.m. start of the meeting at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue in Key West. The topic is expected to be relatively brief, with commissioners receiving working documents as the summer budget preparation process speeds up.Commissioners also will consider project proposals to submit for the various pots of money expected from BP/Deepwater Horizon settlements under the Restore Act.The amount of the specific Monroe County allocation remains unknown pending the final settlement. County staff lists $11 million as a midrange estimate. Commissioners will be asked to approve applications from that fund for:A$3 million project for stormwater mitigation to raise low-lying areas in the Lower Keys, Duck Key and Upper Keys.$2 million for demonstration projects to improve canal water quality.$1 million for the Keyswide system of managed anchoring areas with mooring buoys. Alarger Restore Act fund will cover Florida coastal counties affected directly or economically by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that happened in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010. Eleven crewmen died in the explosion.Commissioners will preview application proposals for seeking $6 million from that fund conservation land acquisition; $5 million for canal restoration; $5 million for stormwater projects; and $4.5 million for mooring fields.In other items:County Mayor George Neugent will request a resolution declaring the Keys coral reefs zoological parks.

The Marathon Veterinary Hospitals 30 employees will have a lot more breathing room come Monday morning.About 6,000 square feet, to be exact, as longtime owners doctors Doug Mader and his wife Jerry Diethelm open their new state-of-theart hospital at the former Boaters World building on U.S. 1 near mile marker 50 oceanside, next to the Cracked Conch Cafe. Its finally coming to fruition, Mader said. We broke ground a year ago in June. The permitting process and buying property started two years ago. Mader and Diethelm took the practice over from Dr. Jim Greene in 1999. He says theyve outgrown their space at 11187 Overseas Highway, on the other side of town, and have long dreamt of a larger hospital. Theyve spared no expense on it, purchasing more than $500,000 worth of new equipment and doing a massive construction overhaul on the 24-hour hospital. The hospital has everything from new endoscopy, dental and advanced surgical suites to luxury boarding with cat condos that have upstairs and downstairs apartments and feature Skype and webcams for clients who want to keep an eye on their pets. We were really just medical before. We did occasional boarding for some clients but we have a new boarding ward. You can rent whatever size apartment for your cat, Mader said. Dogs also have a boarding area with a large run and webcam for each animal, and there will be plenty of space for exotic animals of all kinds. Mader is a renowned reptile and amphibian specialist who has clients all over the state. There is an emergency room fitted with supplies for animals in critical condition and a 1,500-square-foot, open-air exercise yard out back, with high concrete walls where animals can get a bit of fresh air. Mader was clear there would be no outdoor boarding, which was a concern for some neighbors. Another concern of which Mader said he was well is whether a large new hospital means higher costs to his clients. The rumor is that our prices are going to be so high that the locals wont be [able to come here]. Centennial Bank has given us such a great financing package that weve done this without raising prices at all, he said. If all goes well, Mader said three more staff members could be added, along with another veterinarian. The new digs will be on display Monday morning when the hospital hosts a group of local officials and other invitees for a 9 a.m. ribbon-cutting. The current 2,200square-foot hospital at 11187 Overseas will be up for lease once its vacated after this weekend.

The Marathon City Council on Thursday decided on a preliminary design and financing for a new city hall on U.S. 1 between 98th and 99th streets.Key West architect William Horn presented a series of design options to the council, which chose a one-story building on stilts expected to cost from $5 million to $5.5 million. It would be 13,000 to 14,000 square feet.Horn heads the citys design team, working with Marathon-based Solaria Design & Consulting and Key West firm mbi-k2m. As proposed, the building would sit roughly 50 feet off the U.S. 1 property line, with parking on both sides and an events plaza in back. There would be parking available underneath.City hall would feature a 200-seat meeting room/events room on the 98th Street side and city offices on the 99th Street side. It would be white with a dark, sloped roof and significant landscaping.The reason we like this is it has the most pros and least amount of cons. Theres room for expansion if you want, Horn said.Other options included a two-story building above parking, a two-story building at ground level and a onestory building at ground level.Horn covered potential costs, comparing per-foot prices to that of Monroe Countys Stock Island fire station ($377) and the citys Grassy Key fire station ($319).He said an accurate estimate for city hall would be from $350 to $414 per square foot, allowing for a 10 percent increase in prices due to rising construction costs. Those costs include landscaping, he said. For financing, Finance Director Peter Rosasco told the council now is the time to cash in on favorable interest rates. He recommended pursuing a loan for either $5.5 million or $6 million that could be obtained at an interest rate of 2.5 percent or lower. Rosasco told the council that staff would put out a request for proposals on the financing within two weeks. It should be a very competitive scenario right now, so we should get better than 2.5 percent, he said. These are very, very low rates. I dont expect it to last.Councilman Chris Bull voiced slight concern about whether a 200-seat meeting room/event hall is necessary. The city could save roughly $500,000 on a 100-seat room.But the council supported moving forward with the one-story building on stilts and directed staff to bid that design out to determine what the actual cost would be. The council also unanimously favored Councilman Dick Ramsays idea to sell city-owned land at 104th Street that was originally meant to be the site of affordable housing. Key West developer Ed Swift planned that project but it fell through for lack of financing.

Council member Martin Moe, a fishery biologist, said he has heard accounts of areas denuded of a valuable apex predator. McCawley, director of the FWCs Marine Fisheries Management, said the agency has been watching the barracuda situation and aims to bring the issue to the state agency board later this year.It would probably take six to eight months to go all the way through process, McCawley said, meaning any new rule may not take effect before mid-2014. I hope thats not too late, Moe said. Sanctuary council member Richard Grathwohl, a Marathon fishing guide, said before the meeting that he is alarmed by the reports of a growing commercial harvest of barracuda. The sportfishing industry needs barracudas in the winter during those times when theres not much else for people to catch, he said.Jeff Cramer, a council member representing the Keys commercial industry, said many local residents wont eat barracuda because of the potential of ciguatera, a disease sometimes transmitted by eating larger reef predators.Its a fun sportfish to catch but its not a challenge to shoot a barracuda, Cramer said. Spearfishing should not be allowed for them. If the reports of a surge in barracuda harvesting are true, Nova Southeastern University Oceanographic Center Assistant Professor David Kerstetter told the Keynoter Its something of concern.Barracuda are the primary predators at the Keys coral reef so uncontrolled removals could have overall detrimental effects on the reef ecosystems, which are already under stress from overexploitation, climate change and more. Crabtree, the Marine Fisheries Services administrator for the U.S. Southeast Region, fielded a question about the possible harvest of Goliath grouper after reports of an increasing population.We really dont know if the stock is rebuilt, Crabtree said. Its probably close but we dont know.... Alot of people feel if we open the bag limit, people will fish [Goliath grouper] right back down.McCawley said the University of Florida is working on a new stock assessment for Goliath grouper. We want more advice, she said. We know its a big issue for a lot of people.McCawley and Crabtree attended the Tuesday session to discuss fishery management issues that affect the sanctuary. Council member Peter Frezza, an Audubon biologist and part-time fishing guide, praised government action that has increased the population of small-toothed sawfish.We just needed to stop killing them, Crabtree said.Big concern for the reefs big predatorFISHERIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgCity hall to include events plazaThe building estimated at $5M to $5.5MBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON This shows the back of the proposed city hall,which would lead to a kayak dock and small park,and could be used for events.

And although in the Keys were already into the full swing of our summer season, there are several wardrobe essentials you should consider adding to your closet. In late July, many stores start marking summer items down to make room for their fall lines, so start watching those sales racks for these must-have summer staples.Chic cover-ups. Agorgeous cover-up is a must in every fashionistas wardrobe. Look for coverups that can take you from boat mate to lunch date without much effort. I especially love colorful, lightweight, breathable fabrics to keep you cool on a hot day.Lazy-day sun hats. Awide-brimmed hat is another must in the Keys. Not only do they provide great sun protection for your face and upper body, but they ooze fabulous. Pair one with big shades, a cute bikini and a bold lip and youll instantly transform your look.Lightweight colored jeans. The colored denim trend is not going out anytime soon, so pick a few in lightweight fabrics that you can wear through the cooler months. I prefer skinny styles in bright hues that I can pair with a blazer and ballet flats for day or a cute top and heels for night.Bright statement necklaces. Summer fashions tend to have a lot of statement necklaces in beautiful bright colors. If you dont already own a few, consider buying one. If you wear a lot of blue, try finding one in red or turquoise to add another color to your ensemble. Many current styles have several colors combined. Wear a multi-colored statement necklace with neutrals or pair it with an outfit in one of those colors.Summer dresses. I live in dresses. They keep you cool, can be worn year round and are easily dressed up with heels or down with sandals perfect for our Keys lifestyle. Go through your closet and make sure the staples you own will make it another season.

Is it a wine spritzer? A wine cocktail? Sangria? And what about that wild child moment in the 1980s when it was the hottest thing on the party scene? Luckily, this cocktail conundrum is easily solved. As Gertrude Stein might put it, wine cooler is wine spritzer is wine cocktail is sangria. And the versions being whipped up today have nothing in common with the cheap, mass-produced products of 30 years ago (which thankfully went the way of shoulder pads). Mixology has been raised to this new chef-like heights and wine, in a way, is the bartenders hottest ingredient right now, says Mike Dawson, senior editor at Wine Enthusiast. Cuttingedge bartenders are taking these wine-based drinks to new heights, and creating these New Age coolers, along with countless variations of the sangria and classic wine cocktails like the New York Sour. Summer is the perfect time for wine coolers, since its the one time of year even the most dedicated vinophile toys with dropping a fistful of ice in a glass. Switching to a cooler makes wine a little bit easier to drink, says Chad Furuta of Del Friscos Grille in New York.

Its been so long ago, she said Thursday, recalling her first stint leading the Conchs. In those years, I had to beg girls to come out for the team. At HOB, 40 girls tried out. Archer was 31-97 in her six seasons, but built a program that eventually garnered respect. She gradually elevated her playersskills, and led the Conchs last season to victories over Miami powers Gulliver Prep and Monsignor Pace.Jessy did such a great job getting the program going, Butler said. When I learned that no one had applied for the job, I didnt want to see the program fall apart.APennsylvania native, Butler was a scholarship volleyball player at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. Among the players who will greet Butler when practice begins in early August will be seniors Ryann Appleby and Frannie Garcia, who were standouts last season.Former coach takes the reins, succeeds ArcherBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST VOLLEYBALLUpperKeys are doneAdistrict and sectional championship for Little League Baseballs Age 1112 group soon will be settled in Key Largo but the Upper Keys all-stars will not be on the field.

Whether you want to call it wine cooler or spritzer, it really is a great summer drink, he says. What should you use when making your own wine coolers?Well, dont reach for the bottom shelf wine that just doesnt taste good, advises Cappy Sorentino, bar director of Spoonbar restaurant at the h2hotel in the wine country town of Healdsburg, Calif. On the other hand, dont go crazy and uncork an expensive bottle of wine, either.It doesnt have to be the best stuff because youre basically using it as a base, he says.Look for a wine that has a fair amount of acidity to it, i.e. yes to sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio, no to chardonnay thats spent a lot of time in oak barrels. For red wines, Spanish wines are, not surprisingly, a good choice since sangria is a Spanish invention. Tempranillo makes a good choice. He has an interesting take on sangria, which is usually wine fortified with something a little stronger and augmented with sugar and spices.At Spoonbar, hes using a rose wine with pisco (Peruvian brandy), plus a little sugar, some water, fresh pineapple juice, cinnamon and a touch of clove. Its really refreshing, which is good for Healdsburg, where temperatures can get toasty.Joe Campanale, beverage director of four New York City neighborhood restaurants, encourages cocktail enthusiasts to get creative by mixing up their favorite single-serving cocktail in a pitcher for a group dinner or celebration. Keep the ingredients light, he advises, as in his Blame it on the Aperol cocktail served at the dellanima restaurant that combines Aperol, Blue Coat gin, lemon juice in a pitcher with plenty of ice.Give it a stir, pour into flute glasses and top off with sparkling wine for a bright effervescence.Ensure the wine is acidicFrom Spirits,1B LIVING BRIEFSGriffin discusses Darwins theoryBob Griffin from Inference Ministries in North Carolina guest lectures at 6 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Wednesday at the First Baptist Church of Marathon at 200 62nd St., Marathon.

Saturday,July 13,2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com If you spot an overweight bearded man wearing a sweater in Key West next week, dont worry. Its not sun stroke and a daft sojourner let loose on the streets. Rather, its Key Wests annual tribute to Ernest Hemingway and a LookAlike contest now entering its 38th year. Sloppy Joes hosts the contest, which goes through several rounds of competition during the sixday event (July 16-21). Just to establish Key Wests credentials for this affair, remember the world-famous author lived in the Southernmost City during the 1930s. At least two of Hemingways well-known works were written while he lived in Key West: For Whom the Bell Tolls and To Have and Have Not. The Hemingway story is replete with derring do, including his service in the ambulance corp during World War I, and covering the Spanish Civil War decades later as a reporter. Sloppy Joes Running of the Bulls, hearkens back to the famous runs held in Pamplona, Spain. Only, the Key West version employs man-made bulls to reduce the mayhem that accompanies the original Spanish version. The running of the bulls takes place at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 20, coinciding with a Caribbean Street Fair, which gets underway on Duval Street starting at 10 a.m. and concludes at 9 p.m. Helpline is organizing the Street Fair, which this year includes an auction of the former side gate to Hemingways Key West house. Benefits from the fair and auction will go to Helpline and the Hemingway Look-Alike Societys scholarship fund. The final round of the Look-Alike contest will be held at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Judges come from the former winners, including last years Papa winner, Greg Fawcett of Cornelius, N.C. The Hemingway House will be open, of course. Its located at 907 Whitehead St. For more information, plus a complete schedule of events, visitwww.hemingwaydays.net.Bearded ones compete for show and tellLAttitudes StaffKEY WEST S ee full schedule on p g 5B Photo courtesty Andy Newman/Florida Keys News BureauErnest Hemingway look-alikes maneuver fake bulls during last yearsRunning of the Bulls.Riffs on Immortalityopens July 18Artist Keith Bland contemplates immortality in a series of paintings that focus on iconic sculpted faces through the ages. His work goes on view July 18 at The Studios of Key West, with a reception from 6-9 p.m. that day in the main hall. Also, Skipper Kripitz and the Conch Republic MarchinBand will perform at the July 18 reception with their Second Line Jazz Parade. Bland said he wanted to study what elements or facial expressions make a facial image immortal. Two of his pieces on view take their inspiration from a 3rd-7th century Teotihuacan figure carved in Mexico, another from Nigeria and capturing a Queen Mother image from the 16th century. Joining Bland in the Studiosexhibit will be artist Maureen Tracy Venti, who has written a series of poems in collaboration with Bland. These poems explore immortality as imagined by different cultures as well as its subtle influence on our everyday lives, says Venti. Blands paintings represent a return to the theme of his early work, a fascination with the transcendence of the human face. The riffs, he explained, are painted portraits of sculpted faces from different cultures that date from the Stone Age to the present. The iconic sculptures not only commemorate ancestral heroes and leaders, but also idealize the human face to represent sacred, supernatural, or protective forces within various societies. Riffs on Immortality will be on view through August 9 in the Armory Main Hall, 600 White St., Key West.Images, poetry explore what immortal meansARTMcCarthy steals this copcomedy filmThe Heat, Rated R, 117 min. Now playing nationwide.Directed by Paul Feig, The Heat is a typical cop-buddy movie: two totally incompatible characters have to work together and fight like cats and dogs at first before bonding and ending up best friends. Its a formula thats been used many times in films like Starsky & Hutch, Rush Hour, Tango & Cash and even Turner and Hooch, where Tom Hankspartner was a dog. The twist in this film is that this time around the buddies are both female. Starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, the film is a refreshing break in the long string of male-dominated crime comedies and the team of Bullock and McCarthy hold their own very well. Bullock is well cast as straight man for the hysterically funny McCarthy. Following up her scenestealing turn in Bridesmaids, McCarthy ramps up the vulgarity and drops the Fbomb in almost every line. But the foulmouthed humor is very funny and makes the thin plot seem less and less important as time goes by. Viewers will likely find themselves laughing out loud in spite of the language. Bullock is an unlikeable, uptight FBI agent named Sarah Ashburn who, although she solves more cases than anyone in her unit, is disliked by everyone she works with. Even the SWATteam wont cooperate with her. McCarthy plays Shannon Mullins, an uncouth, unconventional Boston detective who is always ready to rumble and has never met a suspect she couldnt rough up. Her rude, crude behavior has alienated the cops in her precinct and she prowls the streets of Boston alone. Ashburn and Mullins are thrown together to bring down a violent and mysterious drug dealer who likes to literally cut his enemies into pieces. And instead of a romantic backdrop, the films undercurrent is one of strong successful women who are struggling in their personal lives and subconsciously may be looking for a friend.Talks already underway for possible sequelFILM Craig Wanous KeysFilm Teotihuacan Green Schist Figure, Mexico, 3rd-7th century; oil on canvas by Keith Bland Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy costar in The Heat.

HEMINGWAYDAYS Its hate at first sight when they first meet, as Ashburn steals Mullinsprime parking spot and Mullins swipes Ashburns classified file. From there, its two Type-A personalit i e s t r ying to outdo each other at every turn. But the p artners finally realize they are more alike than they thought and they will need each other if they hope to catch the bad guy.Backstories revolve around Ashburns desire for a promotion and Mullinsloudmouthed family of eccentrics. The supporting cast includes Jane Curtin, an original Saturday Night Live cast member, Marlon Wayans, of the Wayans dynasty, character actor Michael Rapaport and Michael McDonald, a MADtv alumni. They are all good and the exaggerated New England accents used by the Mullins family are hilarious. One hospital scene in particular will strike a chord with anyone who has had trouble understanding someone with a heavy Boston brogue. There is some unexpected violence mixed in with the comedy, so viewers should be prepared for a few graphic scenes. And, as in most of the films in this category, the plot takes a back seat to the wisecracks, car chases, sight gags and one-liners. But the chemistry between the two leads crackles on-screen and their banter and squabbles make the film fun from beginning to end. The Heat is a very funny second film from director Feig and a sequel is already in talks.
