It was a problem that cropped up literally in the commissions own back yard, the bayfront park behind the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102.5.Weve had people showering naked next to the dumpster. People bathing in the fountain, naked, county Building Official Jerry Smith told the commission. We deal with this on a daily basis.Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said the small park once attracted sunset-watchers and childrens parties. Efforts were made to accommodate a number of wellbehaved boaters who started using a small dock at the site to tie their dinghies. We were very good to the people who live on the hook out there, Murphy said. For two and a half years, it was wonderful. Then all of a sudden, a different quality began to take place.Now the park has been has been overrun by a small group of sketchy characters who create anxiety among visitors and county staff, she contended. We provided a heck of a lot and a heck of a good deal. In return, we get mouth and curse words, Murphy said. People come to watch the sunset and because of the language, they go away with a sour taste in their mouth and dont come back.

City Commissioner Clayton Lopez and Rachelle Johnson,a Transportation Security Administration agent at Key West International Airport,are in the background. Plenty of roadwork is plannedThe state Department of Transportation is just more than halfway through a 240day project to repave a stretch of U.S. 1 starting on Grassy Key and ending in Layton.DOTspokesman Dean Walters says the $5.37 million project is just a small part of a Keyswide overhaul of the Overseas Highway, the KeysMain Street. Eventually, the whole of U.S. 1 throughout the Keys is going to be done in the nottoo-distant future. Theyre starting with different sections that need a lot more work, he said. On the stretch of U.S. 1 between mile markers 59.9 and 68.5, workers are repaving and restriping the highway, upgrading signs, replacing some guardrails and widening the shoulder from five to 10 feet. The overall project length is 5.6 miles excluding bridges, according to DOT.Construction is being done by Miami-area de Moya Group and takes place during daylight hours Monday through Friday. The de Moya Group is the contractor for the ongoing $41.5 million North Roosevelt Boulevard reconstruction project in Key West.Walters said the Middle Keys project is on schedule to be complete by midDecember. Construction began on April 15. Asimilar project is under way on U.S. 1 from mile marker 99.6 to 106.3 in Key Largo.Sombrero roadworkSeveral large piles of chopped-up asphalt have notGrassy Key an example of what to expectBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School sophomore Katie Popejoy elevates for a hit against Key West High defenders Kayla Carmona (left) and Syndi Swanson during a preseason tournament hosted by the Dolphins Wednesday.The Conchs won the match 12-25,25-11 and 15-5.Story, 1BINTRA-KEYS RIVALRY More meetings for plan rewriteIn a bid to calm fears and share the process, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary staff and advisers will stage new meetings on updates to the sanctuarys rules and management plan.There will be a lot more communication and transparency so at least people can be informed before they get mad or make recommendations, said Joe Weatherby, a Lower Keys dive-boat captain and sanctuary adviser.At a Tuesday meeting in Key West, the Sanctuary Advisory Council decided to hold four September meetings so residents can focus on suggested marine-zoning changes in their respective areas of the Keys.The meetings are planned Sept. 23 in the Upper Keys, Sept. 24 in the Middle Keys and Sept. 25 in the Lower Keys. ASept. 26 meeting in the Lower Keys looks at the Marquesas and Dry Tortugas. Locations and evening start times are being determined.The process to update the management plan, now in place for nearly 20 years, slowed July 29 when more than 100 people, mostly commercial fishermen and charterboat crews, turned out for a sanctuary workinggroup meeting in Marathon to protest early-stage draft plans for creating new notake ecological reserves and expanding sanctuary preservation areas.Recommendations for reef and deepwater preserves were drafted by the volunteer Ecosystem Protection working group. No votes have been taken by the Ecosystem Protection working group or the full Advisory Council on changes to marine zoning.Working-group membersMarine zones will be focus in SeptemberNATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARYMurder suspect has violent pastAll the signs were there that Timothy Howard, a homeless man arrested Thursday for allegedly stabbing to death another homeless man in Marathon, might kill someone at some point, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. His jail record was marked violent, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. Howard, 59, is accused of stabbing to death Richard Maslar, 53, Wednesday night at a homeless camp they shared off U.S. 1 on the bayside, across the highway from the Knights Key Campground just off the bicycle path at mile marker 47. Police say Howard used a filet knife to stab Maslar five times.When questioned by Detective Manny Cuervo, Howard reportedly said, Manny, you know what happened. I have two broken ribs and had to defend myself.Sheriffs Office records show both men with extensive rap sheets.

June 7, 2008; April 11, 2009; and March 22, 2010. Maslars slaying was the second homicide in the Keys this year. On July 7, Charles Miller, 42, of Stock Island beat Jesus Rodriguez, 45, over beer money on Stock Island. A week later, Rodriguez died at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, and on Aug. 5 Keys prosecutors upgraded his aggravated battery charge to manslaughter. Prosecutors said that might be upgraded again to murder based upon detailed autopsy results from the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiners Office.The fight between Howard and Maslar happened at 8:45 p.m. Wednesday. When Deputy Garrett Test arrived at the camp, he found a female witness screaming hysterically, Herrin said.The woman told Garrett and Deputy Chuck Kellenberger that Howard was the killer. She told the deputies the two men fought over a missing bag, and thats when Howard stabbed Maslar, Herrin said. The witness said she heard Maslar say you didnt have to stab me five times and saw him push away from Howard and fall into the water at the shoreline. Maslar then reportedly picked up his bicycle and left the encampment, and Howard told the woman that Maslar would be dead by the time he reaches the Mobile gas station.Deputies found Maslars body at the edge of the wooded area, on top of his bike.Howard was found still in the encampment. The knife, a 6-inch filet type knife, was found nearby. He was taken into custody, treated for minor injuries to his elbow and shoulder, then charged with murder.Based on records maintained by the Sheriffs Office, Howard has been homeless and living in the Middle Keys since at least 2004 when he was arrested for driving under he influence.This is the third time since 2010 that a homeless man is accused of killing another homeless man in the Keys.

A funeral mass was held Thursday August 22, 2013 at San Pablo Catholic Church, followed by a private memorial at sea. She was born June 24, 1938, in Long Beach, CA to Florence Patterson and Boatswains Mate 1st Class Lawrence Murphy. Her mother died while Diane was a toddler, and her father was killed in action at the Battle of Tassafaronga in 1942 leaving her and her siblings war orphans. It was during this time that Chief Petty Officer Frank and his wife Anna Lanham, best friends of her fathers, took the children in to raise along with their own. It should be noted that the Lanham/Murphy family were stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and luckily survived. Returning from Hawaii after the war years, Diane grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area graduating from Holy Names High School in Oakland, CA. While attending college she met and married Arthur White and upon his Naval discharge came to live in the San Jon Community. After their adventure of living abroad for several years in Australia, they settled in Clovis, NM raising their two children. Mrs. White returned to college earning her degree in nursing and worked for 31 years at Plains Regional Medical Center until her retirement in 2004. The compassion and dedication to her profession was known throughout the community during her service there. Eventually divorced, she found great solace in committing herself to the parishioners at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church for many years. Finally due to health and safety concerns, Diane moved to The Florida Keys to live with her daughter and to be near the ocean she loved so much. Her interests included family, prayer, writing, music, reading, television, and cat rescue. Diane E. White is survived by her son Donald White and daughter Laura White. She was preceded in death by her mother Florence Patterson, father Lawrence Murphy, foster mother Anna Lanham, foster father Frank Lanham, brother Lawrence Murphy Jr., sister Joyce Murphy Smith, and sister Laurie Lanham Donations may be sent to Forgotten Felines-Marathon, FL Meeting Notice Monroe County Land AuthorityNotice is hereby given that the Governing Board of the Monroe County Land Authority will hold public hearings on the adoption of a budget for fiscal year 2014 on September 4, 2013 at 5:05 PM at the Nelson Government Center on Key Largo; on September 9, 2013 at 5:05 PM at the Marathon Government Center; and on September 12, 2013 at 5:05 PM at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.

You pushed them to us.He added, Theyre mostly gone now because they were arrested or their boats sunk. Murphy agreed the boaters who attended the Wednesday session are the good ones. Youre not the problem, and you cant solve it, she said. I dont know what else we can do, except close off the dock to dinghies. If you choose to close this off, youre saying Key Largo is a town and island that is inaccessible by the water, said liveaboard Chadwick Acevedo, married and employed. What kind of island has no water access for the public? The boaters describe themselves as working locally for modest wages or retirees living a fixed income. Local marinas are too expensive, they said. County Mayor George Neugent, a former liveaboard, said the proposed ordinance to curtail use of the park gives me heartburn. Everything you cited, I feel can be addressed with rules, regulations and a mooring field, Neugent said. We live in a boating-friendly community.... Im not sure how we keep people from using a public facility. The government center, opened in 2009, was designed for people coming here to do business with the county, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said. Not people coming in from a mooring field. Commissioner David Rice and Neugent said the situation reminds them of Boot Key Harbor in Marathon before a regulated mooring field was established. But there is no money in the county budget to create and staff a new mooring field in Tarpon Basin, Murphy and Kolhage said. Maybe we need to accelerate some plans for that kind of facility, Rice said. Im not sure [the Nelson center] is proper place to do that.... I see long-term solutions; I dont see a short-term solution. Neugent said he would speak with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office about an increased lawenforcement presence at the government center, which has a small work area for deputies. No vote was taken on the dock closing.No money for mooring fieldFrom Liveaboards,1A Rowell s talk s to s ta r tKey Largo residents representing about dozen business and civic groups urged Monroe County to move forward to buy the Rowells Marina property but two Lower Keys county commissioners remain unpursuaded.I want to make it clear to everyone that this is a part of the capital-improvement plan I do not support, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said Wednesday. Were spending a lot of money for projects I dont see as an absolute need.Commissioners ultimately voted, 4-1, to have County Administrator Roman Gastesi open negotiations with owners of the eight-acre tract on Florida Bay at mile marker 104.5. Kolhage cast the dissenting vote.Commissioner Heather Carruthers voted with the majority but repeated her concern about possible environmental contamination and expenses that could push the Rowells cost far past the appraisal prices of $4.5 million and $5 million. All were doing is telling [Gastesi] to find out what the selling price is, County Mayor George Neugent said. When he comes back, if [the price] doesnt suit you, dont vote for it, Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said.Members of the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce, the Upper Keys Rotary Club, the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowners Associations and other groups supported efforts to acquire the open property with an unobstructed view of the bay.This is the last chance for the community to have a large gathering space, and for people like me who live on a dry lot to have water access, said Robby Majeska.Some day residents will thank heaven that some people took the initiative to save this land, said Burke Cannon of the homeowners federation.This is a project with hugely broad support in Key Largo, businessman Jim Saunders said. Its the only one Ive ever come across that has total community support. Howard Gelbman contended a public board could manage the property with some business use, and turn a profit to repay the county. The longtime marina property has served as an events venue for major Upper Keys festivals since it was purchased as a potential condominium site for $6.5 million in 2005. The 136unit development faltered due to local opposition, land-use limits and the realestate crash. County commissioners will review a countywide capital-improvement plan during budget hearings in early September.Kolhage only commissioner to oppose itCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comBody located in waterFrom Homicide,1ACouncil prioritizes RestoreThe Marathon City Council is slated to discuss on Tuesday how it might divvy up its piece of the federal Restore Act pie. The 2012 act would establish a trust fund by which 80 percent of the civil BP/Deepwater Horizon oilspill penalties assessed would be distributed to states along the Gulf of Mexico coastline. The civil penalty amount has yet to be settled.The fines are related to the resulting environmental and economic damage following the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil-rig explosion in the gulf off Louisiana. It killed 11 crewmen and spilled, according to numerous reports, roughly 205 million gallons of oil into the gulf.There was a fear oil would make its way to the Keys but none did, but the Keys are in line for money because of what officials say was a negative impact on tourism. Marathons potential proposals for the money include:Boot Key acquisition and land management. The city has long eyed purchasing the 1,100-acre island from its private owners in hopes of turning it into an eco-tourism destination.City documents say the estimated $6 million project would serve a dual purpose of protecting remaining habitat while allowing a limited amount of passive recreational uses.The city would request $4.48 million, or 75 percent of the project cost, in Restore Act funding.Marathon canal restoration project.The city and Monroe County comprehensive plans, as well as the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, say improving canal water quality is necessary in the Keys.The estimated cost to perform various canal upgrades in Marathon would be $5 million and the city would request $4 million, or 80 percent.Sunset Park improvements, which are dependent on eventual repairs to the old Seven Mile Bridge. Monroe County and the state Department of Transportation, which owns the bridge, are negotiating a deal by which the state would foot a large portion of the estimated $18 million bill to repair the bridge. City staff estimates $3 million in upgrades to the park area at the east end of the bridge and would request $2.25 million, or 75 percent. You can either do an individual project or potentially we could do part of a project. If the council says go ahead and submit them, then well submit them all, Planning Director George Garrett said. The citys combined ask totals $16.61 million. Last month, the Monroe County Commission reviewed proposals totaling $20.5 million.

$300,000 boat stolen from Marathon homeThe Monroe County Sheriffs Office is on the lookout for a 35-foot Intrepid Cuddy Cabin boat stolen Tuesday off a boat lift from a Marathon home. Police say the estimated $300,000 boat belongs to Peoria, Ill., resident William Torchia, who is apparently a seasonal resident not in the Keys now. It was reported missing by neighbor Richard Dorn. Both live in the Sombrero area of the Middle Keys. Deputy Becky Herrin said Deputy Brad Colen responded to Dorns call just before 8 a.m. Tuesday. The boat was missing from the lift behind Torchias house. Dorn told police he called Torchia, who told him he hadnt given anyone permission to use the boat and to call authorities. Colen later spoke with Torchia, who reiterated no one had permission to use the boat and that he intended to press charges if someones arrested in the theft. Torchia provided police with serial numbers for the boats hull, motors, electronics and other valuables aboard. The boat was equipped with twin Yamaha 300-horsepower four-stroke engines, a Garmin chart plotter, radar system and an autopilot system. At Torchias house, Colen said he saw a large boat lift that had been lowered into the water. The remote control box was left open but an attempt to collect fingerprints was unsuccessful.Herrin said anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys at (800) 346-TIPS. If an arrest is made, the tipster might be eligible for a cash reward. Tipsters can remain anonymous.Someone took it from lift behind houseBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comComing soon: Fee for throwing upIn the run-up to the annual ribald 10-day Fantasy Fest in late October, the Key West City Commission on Tuesday passed the first of two required readings of a new law that would mandate a $50 cleanup fee for any rider who soils a Key West taxi.Jan Dolan, owner of the 5 6s taxi company, told commissioners the fee is for cleaning up the cab when people puke. Im sorry, thats the only way I can put it. We cant enforce it unless its in the ordinance. He said taking cabs off the road for cleanup and disinfecting can take from a couple hours to overnight. While researching the new law sponsored by District 1 Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, City Attorney Shawn Smith said, This is the lowest fee Ive seen out there. It has to be posted in the taxi so the parties that are in the taxi may want to stick their heads out the window, Weekley joked. The measure passed 7-0.Douglass GymThe Key West City Commission was briefed Tuesday on a plan to spend $1.5 million for major repairs to the failing Frederick Douglass Gym in Bahama Village. Last year, the one-story building attached to the gym, housing restrooms, a commercial kitchen and office space, was deemed unsafe and closed. Andy Hayes of Hayes Cumming Architects of St. Petersburg laid out four options: Demolish the building; spend $1 million on a new roof as a temporary fix; retain the historic building while making it structurally sound for between $1.26 million and $1.4 million; or build a steel superstructure inside the existing concrete for, at most, $2.6 million. Based on meetings with city staff, It appeared like it would be in the best interest of the city to recommend the third option and renovate the existing building, he said. Theres $1.5 million budgeted for the project that Hayes said would give you 30 years worth of life for the 111 Olivia St. rec center. City Manager Bob Vitas said theres already $1,175,000 set aside, $1 million of that from proceeds of the sale last year of cityowned property beneath the Pier House Resort to the hotels parent company for $7.5 million. He said the remainder could come from the Tax Increment Fund, a special property tax mechanism that reinvests tax money into public capital projects in Bahama Village and noncontiguous parts of the Caroline Street Corridor.Law would let taxi firms charge cleanupBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Saturday,August 24,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Celebrating the life of Sharon Helmke A gathering to celebrate the life of local artist Sharon Helmke will be held on Saturday, August 24th at Boondocks Restaurant on Summerland Key, 5:00 p.m. Sunset.

The Advisory Council meeting Tuesday in Key West drew a large crowd, with many voicing strong opposition to creating nofishing areas. People seemed to relax a bit when they realized nobody is trying to shut down the Keys, Weatherby said. Im in the tourism business so the last thing I want to do is put anybody out of business. But I think part of staying in business is preserving our ecosystem. Working-group members plan to meet Sept. 30 to discuss results of Septembers regional sessions, and craft a report to the full SAC. That report will be presented to the full Advisory Council at a public Oct. 15 meeting at Islamoradas Islander Resort. No vote on the marine-zoning plan is expected in October. In November, the council plans to hold three sessions to provide information on all the Advisory Council work-plan items for the marine zoning and regulatory review. The Sanctuary Advisory Council meets Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 to vote on issues and marine-zoning areas they want to see considered when sanctuary staff writes its environmental and economic-impact statement. The Advisory Council does not have regulatory authority but its recommendations generally are given weight by sanctuary managers. Any recommendations from the council will reviewed locally and in Washington, D.C. No new regulations or zoning areas are expected to be enacted before mid-2015.

You get on the edge and when you have that drop, you want to keep the side of the road even with the asphalt. If people drive off that lip, you break off a bit of asphalt, he said. Solis said the project is expected to cost a few thousand dollars. The city provided equipment from General Rental Center in Marathon and is using city staff and labor from a continuing services contractor. At the end of the day, were doing it for 30 cents on the dollar, he said. Solis said debris in the swales and on the bike path would be removed as soon as the work is complete.Shoulder being widenedFrom Roadwork,1A N. Roosevelt to be two-waySome traffic relief will come by Oct. 15 to motorists driving North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West. State Department of Transportation officials told the Key West City Commission Tuesday night that traffic on the under-construction North Roosevelt can be returned to two-way traffic by mid-October. The new three-lane concept will maintain the current two inbound lanes while adding an outbound lane by essentially downsizing the construction area fenced off along the waterside and then shifting in that direction. The three lanes will run from the Triangle (U.S. 1 and Roosevelt) to Kennedy Drive, with the center lane allowing for left-hand turns into area businesses.Between Kennedy and First Street, traffic will also be two-way but with only two lanes, the same as between Eisenhower and First.DOTDistrict 6 Secretary Gus Pego presented the modified concept two weeks after state DOTSecretary Arnanth Prasad met with business owners who complain the road construction is killing their operations. Prasad had said having two-way traffic with just two lanes one inbound, one outbound could be implemented by Labor Day. Sure we can do it, Pego said of the two-way no-turn lane arrangement, but what are the impacts? In all our modeling, all our best wishes prove that traffic is going to back up to the Triangle every time somebody wants to make a left turn.Commissioner Tony Yaniz continued to focus his comments on the impact road construction is having on North Roosevelt vendors: Therere some businesses out there that are trying to make it one more week. Lets get this done as soon as possible.Pego summarized his offices focus: Our goal is two things: Keep the traffic moving and serve the businesses while at the same time giving the contractor the most room so he can get out of here.DOTDistrict 6 construction manager Mark Croft explained changes to be made in the coming weeks. What we would do in order to provide this is first go in and pave immediately behind the fence you see out there now where the pedestrian path is from one end of the job to the other, he said.That would create the third lane and restrict the construction area to the lane immediately next to the water.That will all happen by Oct. 15 and Pego said it requires the addition of more construction crews as well as increases in production from Florida materials providers.Commissioner Mark Rossi took issue with the date, citing the proximity to several popular tourist draws on the calendar: The Bahamian Goombay celebration is Oct. 18 and 19, followed by Fantasy Fest from Oct. 18 to 27, Meeting of the Minds (Jimmy Buffet Parrothead convention) Oct. 30 to Nov. 3 and the Super Boat World Championships powerboat races Nov. 3 to Nov. 10.The 15th of October is not a good date, Rossi said. The best time to do this would be Nov. 15. Wed be going into the slowest time of the year.I disagree with you, Commissioner Billy Wardlow said. If we can get it done by Oct. 15, the sooner the better. Not getting traction with his colleagues, Rossi warned: I really want to go on the record. You do this, dont come to me complaining about it.Rossi opposes, citing upcoming tourist eventsKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe owner of the 5 6s taxi company says when people throw up in his cars,it means loss of revenue because they have to be taken off the road for cleanup.MARATHON This is the 35foot Intrepid Cuddy Cabin stolen Tuesday from a Sombreroarea home in Marathon.Photo courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICE
Board OKs redevelopment planAdivided Key West City Commission on Tuesday approved a plan to convert an Old Town trailer park into an upscale development while also discussing the citys affordable-housing requirements for new construction and redevelopment. Mayor Craig Cates and commissioners Clayton Lopez, Billy Wardlow and Jimmy Weekley voted to approve Joe Cleghorns plan to replace the 44 trailers and RVs at 1200 Simonton St. with 21 single-family homes. Commissioner Teri Johnston prompted the dialogue about the citys landuse plan requirement that 30 percent of new development be dedicated to affordable housing based on state income eligibility thresholds. Johnston told Planning Director Don Craig, Bring forth an ordinance back to this dais for us to debate and vote on that requires all redevelopment to have a 30 percent affordable housing requirement.What troubles me and confuses me, she continued, is in the [land development regulations] under definitions, it says redevelopment constitutes development. If that is true, redevelopment should function the same as development, which requires 30 percent affordable housing.Craig explained an important legal distinction. This is considered a vested project. It is a project that was in place in 1993 with the adoption of the comprehensive plan and the land development regulations. That means the conversion plan was already on the table when the city adopted the land plan and LDRs that prescribe the 30 percent affordable requirement, essentially a grandfathering. If you wish us to amend the regulations to make it clear that even redevelopment requires 30 percent, Craig said, we will do so. But for Cleghorns project, At this point in time, its staffs opinion [the 30 percent rule] does not apply. Commissioner Tony Yaniz voted against the plan while acknowledging a person has a right to develop property but at the end of the day, what youre talking about here is doing away with 44 affordable places that people are living in. Cleghorn has offered the soon-to-be-displaced residents a $2,500 relocation payment or three months of free rent at the Lazy Lakes RVResort 20 miles away on Summerland Key. Mallory Square sunset celebration performer Jeep Caillouet said he couldnt do his job if he lived on Summerland. I dont want to leave. We have to have affordable housing here.

This May, he was convicted of premeditated murder and robbery. The jury then recommended, by an 11-1 vote, that Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones sentence LeBaron, from Utah, to die for his crimes.Instead, Jones, calling LeBaron a cowardly man who committed a despicable and disturbing act, gave him two life sentences with no chance for parole, one for the murder and one for robbery with a deadly weapon. This case was not the worst of the worst hed seen, Jones said. Had he been given the death penalty, LeBaron would have joined three other Monroe County convicts on Death Row.Killer being processed for move upstateCRIME FRONT LeBARONKeynoter StaffCorps: Dredging not guaranteedKey West voters on Thursday were educated in the federal machinations needed for a feasibility study into widening the citys main Key West Harbor shipping channel to accommodate larger cruise ships. Environmental advocacy group Last Stand sponsored the community forum, at the Tropic Cinema on Eaton Street, in the run-up to an Oct. 1 referendum asking whether the city should pursue the needed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study. With a $3 million price tag, the study requires a 50 percent non-federal match and would take about three years to complete, according to Eric Bush, the Army CorpsPlanning and Policy Jacksonville Division chief. Bush told the standingroom-only crowd that a reconnaissance study completed in 2010 indicates widening Cut B of the ship channel from 300 feet to 450 feet would have likely significant economic benefits but also significant environmental concerns.The proposed project would displace some 150,000 cubic yards of sea floor protected by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The Sanctuary would have to permit any dredging but it doesnt have a permit category for that activity. To create a mechanism to allow dredging, Congress would have to change the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and Protection Act, passed into law on Nov. 16, 1990.Bush said any action from the Army Corps would be predicated by a head nod from the sanctuary so theres a pathway to move forward if voters approve the study. The Corps is not an advocate for a project until Congress authorizes a project, Bush said, adding that congressional approval comes via the Water Resources Development Act, the last update of which passed in 2007. These come fairly infrequently, he said. On Oct. 1, city voters will be asked: Shall the city of Key West request that the Army Corp of Engineers conduct a comprehensive feasibility study, at no monetary cost to the city, to determine the environmental, economic and social impacts of widening the Key West Main Ship Channel for use by modern and longer cruise ships while also addressing navigational safety?Voters to say whether city requests studyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCode violator gets a big breakAKey Largo homeowner got a break of more than $817,000 on code-compliance fines charged against his Poinciana Drive home since 2005.Monroe County commissioners agreed Wednesday to slash the $871,950 in fines owed by Thaddeus Bowling Jr. by nearly 94 percent to $54,496 after Bowling apologized and asked for leniency because of psychological and medical problems.I am totally at fault for this happening in the first place. I do not argue that, Bowling told commissioners, meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center. I made a mistake during a previous time in my life that I am not proud of.The home was brought into compliance in 2012 but the fines accumulated over the years now far exceed the value of his unmortgaged property, Bowling said. County Attorney Bob Shillinger advised the commission that the county has a slam-dunk case on foreclosure ... but you dont have to go that way. You have a lot of options.Under county policy, the attorneys office can reduce code fines to a quarter of the total once properties come into compliance, which in Bowlings case would have left $218,000. Anything lower than 25 percent requires commission approval.Commissioner Sylvia Murphy suggested the $54,496 as a quarter of the $218,000. Mr. Bowling, for eight years you ignored the county. You ignored your neighbors who had to live with looking at this, Murphy said. Someone willing to ignore their neighbors and the county should not walk away scot-free. I would like to see a reasonable payment plan negotiated, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said. The more we do this [fine reduction], and weve done it a lot, the less credibility our fines have.The board agreed, and instructed the attorneys office to secure a settlement deal, with Bowling paying monthly installments against a county mortgage lien. Additional county staff-time costs of $1,182 were imposed.Two other Upper Keys code-compliance cases with whopping fine totals will head to court with commission approval:Aforeclosure will be filed against a four-bedroom waterfront home on Bostwick Drive in Key Largo, allegedly rebuilt without any building permits or inspections. Owners are listed as Miami residents Nick and Anabel Martinez. Accumulating fines from two code-violation cases dating to 2008 now amount to nearly $1.37 million.County attorneys will seek a court injunction barring owner Juan Carlos Castaneda from making short-term vacation rentals, including for weddings, at his six-bedroom canalfront home on Old Fashion Road in Tavernier. Neighbors have complained of repeat violations of the vacation-rental law since 2009. In September 2012, a special magistrate imposed $2,000-per-day fines, with a $15,000 fine for violating code. Fines now exceed $610,000.$871K cut to $54K;2 others head to courtCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

It cut funding to our Original Marathon Seafood Festival by 40 percent but shipped $50,000 in Middle Keys bed-tax dollars to fund events outside our Middle Keys district. The events budget had a surplus of $50,000, yet Middle Keys events saw their funding cut while out-of-district events had their funding increased. Why? Another disturbing occurrence was TDC Director Harold Wheeler questioning only Middle Keys eventshotel occupancy and visitor statistics; not one question was asked of the out-ofdistrict events. Why scrutinize Middle Keys at the DAC 3 meeting and not give the same treatment for out-of-district events? Bed taxes earned in our district should stay in our district. Why the director of the TDC is advocating our DAC allocate less money to local vs. out-of-district events is disturbing.The Marathon chapter of the Organized Fishermen of Florida partners with the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce to stage the Middle Keys; biggest event and the second-biggest event in all the Keys. Thanks to TDC funding and the city of Marathon, we have been able to grow and improve this event year after year. For 37 years, the Seafood Festival has been a celebration of our commercial fishing heritage and draws thousands of visitors each year to Marathon more and more each year. And the DAC wants to cut funding because were too successful?OFF and the chamber did a survey at this years festival and found that more than 9,000 out-of-county residents came to Marathon specifically for the Seafood Festival. This translated into $3.5 million in lodging revenue and nearly $6.5 million in visitor spending in the Middle Keys. Proceeds help OFF and the chamber with expenses and programs like scholarships to local students, and fundraising for local youth sports. Why is it that the DAC wants to cut funding from an event that means so much to our economy and community? Maybe its time we wake up and take a closer look at how DAC 3 spends our local tax dollars. Gary Graves Keys Fisheries owner MarathonEnd workplace bullyingDo you remember the last time you were bullied? Have you ever wondered what happens to bullies in the school yard? Well, they grow up to be bullies in the workplace. Children in the school system have teachers, school administrators, resource officers, and parents to protect them. Adults in the workplace rely on supervisors, managers, administrators and others in leadership positions to protect them. What happens when the system breaks down? What happens when the supervisor is the bully? What happens when an employer fosters violent behavior by turning a blind eye to violence in the work place?Most employers have strict policies that prohibit violence in the workplace. These policies are designed to protect victims and employees who report violent behavior. What if employees, who rely on these policies for their safety, suddenly find that politics and personal gain could take away their right to a safe and professional working environment?Violence in the workplace should never be tolerated under any circumstance. Bullies should be suspended immediately pending an investigation by the employer. Otherwise, all employees are exposed to continuing harassment and intimidation. Avictim of bullying should never be forced to use vacation or sick leave to protect himself or herself. Employers have a responsibility to fire bullies and protect their employees against violence in the work place. The choice is theirs. Please know that bosses need the support of their employees to end the violent behavior before it happens again. Employees should come forward to share their own negative experiences in order to help employers maintain a safe working environment. Everyone can help prevent violence in the workplace. Dont wait for someone else to take care of the problem. Next time, it could be you or your loved ones. Shane Smith Big Pine KeyGastesi needs punishmentI have one question regarding Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi: When does he go to jail for the iPad/iPhone scandal? As the administrator and supervisor of Lisa Druckemiller when she was Technical Services director, he not only bought and used three stolen items from her but had to know they were county property. His actions are corrupt and criminal and yet he gets a slap on the wrist and she goes to jail. Just further proof that the bubba system is alive and well in the county. The County Commission looks the other way and life goes on in the Keys. What a disgraceful bunch. They are all complicit in this case. Maybe its time for more of them to go. Remember, there are always elections and chances to get rid of those who are supposed to represent us and instead only do whats good for them. They are a continuing joke. Tucker DeGraw Key Colony BeachGUEST COLUMNIf you havent read Last Train to Paradise and other books about Henry Flaglers Florida East Coast Railway, you are cheating yourself out of something just short of Biblical history. Flagler is such a part of all Florida development and stands in the Pantheon with history makers of Florida and early U.S. development.The Florida East Coast Railway, which eventually terminated in Key West, thanks to Jefferson B. Brownes prompting, is nothing short of miraculous. Flaglers Overseas Railway is tantamount to the Panama Canal engineering feat. The genius of Flagler, his concern for his men, selection of lead engineers, financial acumen and perseverance in the face of great adversity is unsurpassed.Fast forward 100 years to 2013. The old Seven Mile Bridge section leading out to Pigeon Key, which is owned by Monroe County circa 1823, is on the National Register of Historic Places. This two-mile iconic section of the old Florida East Coast Railway, now a bridge from Knights Key to Pigeon Key, with guardrails made from the original tracks, entices thousands of men, women and children, locals and visitors from every state and throughout the world, to walk, run, bike and stroll to watch sunsets, see the schools of tarpon, turtles, rays and occasional waterspouts. It is at risk of being closed permanently. The old Seven Mile going out to Pigeon Key is sacred ground where one can actually feel and taste paradise from the ambient air. Its where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Atlantic Ocean, where you can see that rare phenomenon of a winter sun actually setting in the Atlantic Ocean. This bridge is truly magical. On Pigeon Key, there are beautiful structures that were erected more than 100 years ago by Flagler employees living quarters, a mess hall, a staging area for work crews. These monumental buildings are also on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge and Pigeon Key are cultural and historical icons of the state and all of Monroe County representative of the Christian work ethic of its time and the can-do mentality of all America.The Monroe County Commission has said from the beginning that we would negotiate with the state Department of Transportation and wait for interpretation of the engineering data. So barring an engineering condemnation, I have to ask, why would we, Monroe County, walk away from an opportunity to forever save what so represents the heart of the Keys? When we refer to the Conch Republic is it just a comical farce or does it have real meaning?Although 100 years ago Flagler designed and built the railway to provide transportation to his hotel in Jupiter and then to Key West for pineapples, this section of the old Seven Mile represents more today than its original intent. Do you recall the young Cuban immigrants who clung so proudly to those massive structures that Flagler built after risking their lives crossing the Florida Straits for freedom? Do they think any less of what that bridge stands for than the Statute of Liberty, erected only 29 years earlier?We should do everything within reason to save this bridge. The old Seven Mile and the magical island to which it leads represent the jewel in the center of a sun-struck golden chain that we call paradise. To Commissioner Danny Kolhage, the ghost of Wilhelmina Harvey is calling. Within reason, and if at all possible, the bridge must be saved.The bridge to Pigeon Key would be the greatest economic investment we could ever make. Its an above-thewater aquarium, linear park, beach, museum and our signature brand of the Florida Keys. This bridge represents the past, present and future and that we saved our community and character from where it could have gone. Lets let history reflect that we didnt throw, without researching, a Da Vinci on the trash heap. To the members of Friends of Old Seven, who have contributed much in dollars and time, keep the faith. Monroe County Mayor George Neugent is in his fourth four-year term as a county commissioner. Hes a former member of the Pigeon Key board of directors.The Mosquito Control Board rejects the opportunity to keep eight years as maximumBy one vote, the governing board of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District missed a chance to embrace good governance. The newest member of the board, Jill Cranney-Gage, turned out to be the critical swing vote, joining board veterans Bill Shaw and Steve Smith in voting down a resolution to approve term limits.Commissioner Phil Goodman initiated the resolution that called for limits of two consecutive four-year terms and emphasized hes not only a big believer in term limits for the board he sits on now, but for all taxing authorities.He might as well be whistling in the wind. As noted in our report Wednesday, only three Keys governments currently have term limits for their elected leaders: Marathon, Key West and Islamorada.The Monroe County Commission, Mosquito Control, Utility Board of Key West, the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative, Monroe County School Board, Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District, Key Largo Fire and Emergency Medical Services Board and the cities of Layton and Key Colony Beach have no term limits.Arguments for term limits have been kicking around for decades, fueled by good-government movements that rise in direct proportion as approval ratings drop for an elected body. Congress has some of the lowest approval ratings since pollsters began measuring (down to 14 percent in 2013 polling). So wheres the hue and cry to impose term limits on Congress? The argument most often advanced against term limits voters get to throw the bums out at the next election was even heard during this weeks debate at the Mosquito Control Board meeting. Commissioner Jack Bridges who voted to support term limits said: If somebody is doing a good job at governing, then whats wrong with letting them continue to govern, as long as voters have a chance to kick them out every four years? Yes, but incumbents have a big advantage in name recognition and the ability to raise campaign funds, which makes it harder for challengers to step forward and unseat an incumbent councilman, commissioner or congressman. This is especially true for those elected officials who serve four-year terms. Which is part of the argument that Goodman makes in advocating for term limits. After all, isnt eight years long enough? And wouldnt fresh blood and new ideas reinvigorate just about any elected body? Perhaps Cranney-Gage will see the wisdom in setting term limits. We urge Goodman and Bridges to keep pressing the issue.Old Seven Mile is symbolic of our history NEUGENT LETTERS TO THE EDITORFirm fuels up nonprofitThe Monroe Association of ReMARCable Citizens would like to thank Regan Insurance Agency for its amazing support by helping to pay for the fuel expenses for the Upper Keys MARC program.

They are increasingly offering plans that sound like comeons from mobile phone companies: Free nights, free weekends and pre-paid plans. We are seeing a transformation in the way people buy and use electricity in the U.S., says Steven Murray, president of Direct Energys residential energy programs.The more customized plans not available from the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative or Keys Energy Services are made easier by the growing use of digital meters that wirelessly link electric companies and customers, allowing both to track usage in real time. Digital meters have not only spurred competition, they have also enabled traditional utilities to reduce their costs by encouraging customers to use electricity during off-peak hours, when it is cheaper.Forty-two percent of U.S. electric customers have digital meters, up from less than 5 percent in 2008. In 2015, more than 50 percent will have them, according to Navigant Consulting. This new breed of electric plans comes with risks. Customers can end up paying a lot more for power than they expected. Some plans offer low introductory rates that can quickly skyrocket. Others have high early-termination fees. Some fixed-rate plans are a great deal if power prices rise, but they may seem awfully expensive if prices fall. If customers are careful, though, they can pay less.Dorothea Miller of Sinking Spring, Pa., signed up for a Direct Energy plan that gives her one day of free power every week. She picked Saturday, and now saves as much of her housework as she can until then. She stops short, she says, of letting mountains of dirty laundry or dishes accumulate in anticipation of Saturdays free power.We pretty much run things the way we did before the plan, but now we set our dishwasher to go on after midnight [Friday] and do most of our laundry on Saturday, she says.TXU Energy offers a similar plan to Texas customers that offers free power every night from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. or free power Saturdays and Sundays in exchange for a higher rate during other times.Customized plans are most prevalent in the 13 states and Washington, D.C., where regulators have allowed companies to compete to sell electricity. In those states, the number of customers that have signed up with electricity suppliers that offer these types of plans rose to 13.3 million in 2011, from 8.7 million in 2008, according to the most recent numbers from the Compete Coalition, a group that lobbies to expand competitive electricity markets. The plans are also popping up in other states. Electric competition has been around for more than a decade and utilities have experimented with pricing plans for even longer. But digital meters have made these plans easier to offer and manage.The packages are similar to telephone plansBy JONATHAN FAHEYAssociated PressUTILITIESPower companies dangle free nights,weekends BUSINESS BRIEFSKeys company gets BPW Web contractAKey Largo business consulting company has been chosen to maintain the website of a statewide business and professional womens organization.

The Hurricanes easily handled the Dolphins (25-16 and 25-19) and Key West High (25-8 and 25-16) in straight sets, while the Conchs bested Marathon (12-25, 25-11 and 15-5) in a back-and-forth final match. The three teams played each other in best-of-three matches, as opposed to the regular-season best-of-five set format. The Dolphins proved a tougher test in the opening match of the tournament, but Canes coach Andy Thiery said his team played as a cohesive unit against the Dolphins and made spoton passes throughout. The defense, which didnt tally many blocks, were excellent in their court coverage and transition to attack, he said.Senior Ellie Leopold and sophomore Melissa Helphrey led the Canesoffensive attack, while Amber Hanson and junior Nykki Thompson split time at setter. Leopold led the team with eight kills, while Helphrey had six kills and five aces. Brooklyn Irwin and Skylar De Moss each chipped in with two kills and three aces.The Conchs were no match for Coral Shores in the second match of the day, falling 25-8 and 25-16 to the Canes.Thiery said the teams serving was excellent and its passing consistent. The Canes allowed just three points off serve from the Conchs in the opening set. One of our main goals is to become a cohesive unit and I think we took a step in the right direction this evening. The girls communicated, supported each other, covered one another and just played well all around, Thiery said. Helphrey led the way against the Conchs with six kills and five aces, while Leopold had five kills and two aces. DeMoss had four kills and an ace, and Amberyn Casas had a kill and three blocks. In the final match of the day, the Dolphins dominated the opening set against the Conchs. But Key West battled back and won the next two games handily. It was just one of those games where they lost focus and intensity, Marathon coach Carol Miller said. The Canes are scheduled to open their regular season with a home match Tuesday against LaSalle High School at 5:30 p.m. Marathon opens Wednesday at home against Archbishop McGlaughlin High School at 5 p.m., and Key West hosts the Canes Thursday at 5 p.m.Coral Shores beats Marathon and Key WestBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDolphins romp overHillelBig plays on offense and defense helped the Marathon High School football team to a 42-12 victory Thursday over North Miami Beach-area Hillel Community School.Coach Lance Martin said the preseason Kickoff Classic win was important given the teams struggles a year ago. The Dolphins finished 1-9 in 2012.Some emotion and excitement for them playing football was a good thing, he said.Marathon wasted little time getting on the scoreboard, as quarterback Max Elliott connected with receiver Shemar Fantroy on a 51yard touchdown pass. The extra point was blocked and the Dolphins led 6-0. Hillel tied the game on a 20-yard touchdown pass and was stopped by Marathon on a two-point conversion try to keep the score 6-6. The Dolphins took the lead back on a wild defensive score that started out with a Cooper Chaplin interception. He returned the ball 30 yards to the 20-yard line and was stripped by a defender before Elliott scooped the fumble and went the rest of the way for the touchdown. Chaplin converted a twopoint conversion to make it 14-6 in the first quarter, and scored on a 6-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to make it 20-6 after a failed two-point conversion.Hillel scored on a 4-yard touchdown pass to make it 2012 after a failed two-point conversion, but Marathon put the game out of reach just before halftime on a 60-yard touchdown run from Roberto Perez.Marathon went for two and the score was 28-12 at the break. The second half was all Marathon, as Martin said the team made adjustments to shut down Hillels passheavy attack. We made some adjustment on defense and they werent successful anymore, Martin said. We wore them down a little bit. We had about the same amount of bodies but our kids were bigger.Chaplin intercepted another pass on Hillels opening possession, this time holding on to it for a 50-yard touchdown. The score was 35-12 after kicker Raymond Crespo converted the extra point.The Dolphins finished the game off when Andy Chavez picked a pass off inside the Marathon 10-yard line and returned it 90 yards to the Hillel 3-yard line. Chavez scored on a 3-yard run to make it 42-12 after the extra point.Martin began substituting for starters late in the third quarter and said everyone on the team had a chance to play.The Dolphins are scheduled to begin their regular season Friday with a home game against Deltona-area Trinity Christian Academy at 7:30 p.m.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALLLady Conchs in learning modeLooking a bit harried and toting a large bag, new Key West High volleyball coach Kim Butler arrived for practice late Thursday afternoon at the Bobby Menendez Gym.She had spent the day at Poinciana Elementary School, where she teaches third-graders. Now, it was time to continue her teams preparation for next Thursdays 5:30 p.m. home opener against Coral Shores.Ive been overwhelmed, she said of her new hectic schedule. My mind is racing.Butler, who is 45 and a former volleyball player at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., coached the Conchs once before, from 1996-98. She coached the Horace OBryant Middle School team before replacing Jessy Archer, who resigned after coaching the Conchs for six seasons. Even though we have seniors, were a young team that lacks experience, Butler said. We have everything to work on passing, defense, serving. She said her players know it will take time to build upon the program that Archer developed into respectability. The girls are very receptive and everything is positive. The Conchs will be led by senior hitter Ryann Appleby, who is coming off a strong junior season. Shes the only one we have who can put the ball down, Butler said, referring to Applebys ability to make kill shots. Butler has already impressed Appleby, who, at 5-foot-11, stands a head taller than her coach. She interacts with us and watches us all the time, she said. Shes always there to correct us. Among the other returners from last season are three seniors Breanna Johnson (who impressed as a server), Kayla Carmona (who will be the setter) and senior Frannie Garcia, who was a standout in 2012. Garcia, however, will not play immediately because of shoulder surgery. The Conchs have 12 varsity players and 15 who will be on the junior varsity. The JVwill be coached by John Grotowski, 27, a former college player. He and Butler met while playing volleyball at Higgs Beach.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST VOLLEYBALL New Key West High volleyball coach Kim Butler (left) is high on her top hitter, Ryann Appleby.Photo by BERT BUDDE Swimming Dolphins expect successTheres a lot less breathing room this summer when the Marathon High School swim team hits the practice pool at Sombrero Resort each afternoon. The Dolphins, who graduated just one senior in Markie Sandusky last year, have added a number of new swimmers for the 2013 season. I think well end up having eight boys and close to 20 girls, coach Sarah Maschal said. I already have five new girls. We have a new senior, freshman and then middle-schoolers, but theyve all swam previously. On the boys side, Maschal said three junior swimmers will lead the way for the Dolphins. Will Wolfe is aiming to make regionals for a second year in a row. He swims the 100-yard freestyle and 100yard backstroke. Aaron Grube and Colin Mars are also aiming for the regionals, Maschal said. Grube swims the 100-yard butterfly and 200-yard freestyle, while Mars swims the 100-yard butterfly and 50-yard freestyle. On the girls team, senior Mallorie Woodbury returns to compete in the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle. She went undefeated in those events during last years regular season. Senior Abi Connell swims the same events as Woodbury, and the team added a strong new freshman in Summer King. Hopefully shell make it to regionals. Shes pretty strong in all her events but we havent figured out where to put her yet, Maschal said, adding she could replace Sandusky in the 100-yard backstroke. The Dolphinstop distance swimmers are an eighth-grader and freshman: Audrey Mathis and Hannah Gracy. They each swim the 500-yard freestyle. They were the only middle-schoolers last year to be in the finals at district, so hopefully they can do it again, Maschal said.

Wine tasting: Its subjectiveCan you tell a $15 wine from a $60 wine? Acabernet sauvignon from a zinfandel? If I poured you a glass of wine to taste, and 10 minutes later I poured you a second glass out of the same bottle, could you tell it was the same wine?Most people including professional tasters cannot. At least thats one side of an argument thats been lighting up the wine blogosphere.Wine tasting: Its junk science, says an article in the British newspaper the Observer. In one test, professional tasters given the same wine three times 10 minutes apart gave it scores that varied by as much as four points on a 100-point scale.Other tasters described a wine far more favorably when told it was expensive than when told the same wine was cheap.What do you think? Lets do a simple home test. If nothing else, its a good party game.Read my wine descriptions below. Label two wine glasses No. 1 and No. 2. Have the friend pour the $18 zin into one glass and the $15 cab into the other, not letting you see which is which. Taste each. Take notes on which you think is the more tannic cab, which the softer zin. Ask your friend if youre right.Ten minutes later, have your friend pour you another glass labeled No. 3 of the $15 cab or the $18 zin. Write down which wine you think it is. Did you discern whether No. 3 was the same as No. 1 or the same as No. 2?Now try it with the two white wines.If you want to take it further, do a blind tasting of the $15 Concannon cab vs. the Grgich Hills cab, which sells for four times the price at $60. Can you tell the expensive one? Did you like it better?Retaste them. Be honest: Does knowing which is more expensive change your opinion? What all this shows, in my opinion, is that wine tasting is subjective. Ive been on dozens of five-person tasting panels in wine competitions in which one taster wants to give a wine a gold medal, one wants to give it silver, a third wants bronze and two say no medal at all. Thats why I use only two categories in rating wine: Recommended or highly recommended. If I cant recommend it at all, I just leave it out.So why do you need wine columnists? Well, Ive been writing about wine for 30 years. I believe I can discern its flavors, its weight, its major flaws. I can share my experience about wine-food matches.Areader once wrote to me: Your wine recommendations are useful because I disagree with every one of them. So I know which wines to avoid. Glad I could help.Tasting notes2011 Rancho Zabaco Heritage Vines Zinfandel, Sonoma County, Calif.: Aromas and flavors of blueberries and sweet chocolate; big and rich and smooth, with soft tannins; $18.2010 Concannon Conservancy Cabernet Sauvignon, Livermore Valley, Calif.: Aromas and flavors of vanilla and black cherries; powerful, with firm tannins; $15.2010 Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Calif.: Hint of oak, flavors of black cherries and dark mocha, firm tannins; $60.2012 Nobilo Regional Collection Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand: Light, crisp and lively, with aromas and flavors of herbs, minerals and green apples; $14.

The nationwide contest ends on Labor Day, Sept. 2.The Long Beach, Calif.based Sportfishing Conservancy will award weekly prizes for photos that show fishing in a national marine sanctuary. Additional prizes will be awarded for the four pictures that best exemplify youth fishing, family fishing or conservation in a sanctuary.Since this is a photo contest, catch-and-release fishing is encouraged and all participants are asked to follow the Sportfishing Conservancys best-practices guidelines (go to www.sportfishing conservancy.org ). By focusing on photographs, were able to encourage angling participation while promoting the joy of ethical catch-and-release fishing, said Tom Raftican, president of the Sportfishing Conservancy.Recreational fishing is a memorable way for children and families to experience the sanctuary, said Sean Morton, superintendent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Learning about fishing rules and proper techniques for catch and release helps foster a sense of responsibility for our marine environment.

History lesson worth re-livingLee DanielsThe Butler, Rated PG-13, 132 min. Now playing nationwide.Based on a Washington Post article by Wil Haygood, this gripping and emotional movie tells the story of an AfricanAmerican butler who served in the White House for more than 30 years, a tenure that lasted through eight U.S. presidents, from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan. Although a real-life butler, a man named George Allen, was the basis for the character, director Lee Daniels states the title character and his family are fictionalized. That caveat comes in Haygoods foreword to his book, The Butler: A Witness to History, published to accompany the movie. The bare bones of the real story are there: George Allen did grow up on a plantation in the early 1920s and he did serve under several presidents. He was also witness to presidents debating major policy decisions and his wife did die just before Obamas election. But the similarity pretty much ends there. The names have been changed from George and Helene Allen to Cecil and Gloria Gaines. The horrible things that happen to Cecils parents in the film are not mentioned in the article and therefore probably didnt happen. And at least one major character, Cecils revolutionary son, Louis (David Oyelowo), is completely fictional. But the addition of the character of Louis effectively highlights the civil rights struggle of the 1960s and 1970s through the eyes of the old and new generations of African-Americans. The conflict between Cecil and Louis about the civil rights movement occupies most of the movie's run-time. And despite all the literary license Daniels takes, "Lee Daniels' The Butler" is an entertaining and worthwhile film. The film stars Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland," "Panic Room") and Oprah Winfrey as Cecil and Gloria Gaines. Without the superb acting skills of Whitaker, the film would be just another forgettable late summer movie.The Butler" is a film that not only entertains but also educates; a good film and a history lesson rolled into one.
