Story, 7A Pelican killer still on looseLower Keys brown pelicans are being found with their pouches slashed. Story, 4A Village approves PublixPublix received preliminary approval from Islamoradas Village Council Thursday night to build a 28,000-squarefoot supermarket on Upper Matecumbe Key.If the store makes it past a series of regulatory steps, including receiving the necessary commercial square footage from the village, it would be the first retail chain supermarket built in incorporated Islamoradas 15-year history.The affirmative vote on Publixs site plan is arguably the partial result of a federal courts 2008 ruling against a 2002 village law designed to keep chain stores out. In that lawsuit, developers of a proposed Walgreens drug store at mile marker 82 were denied because of the so-called formula retail ordinance. The laws purpose was to protect the villages smalltown character. But an 11th Circuit Court of Appeals judge ruled that Islamorada already had chain stores like Ace Hardware and Eckerds Drugs Store (now CVS), so basically, there was no smalltown character to protect. The lawsuit cost the village more than $1 million do defend.Councilman David Purdo said at Thursdays council meeting that he feels that ruling opened the door to businesses like Publix.About 100 people packed into Islamoradas Village Hall at Founders Park to either support or protest the proposed store. Turnout was so high that Islamorada firefighters stopped letting people inside. The one issue alone was debated by residents and attorneys on both sides for more than five hours.Most speaking against the project said they think Publix, planned for a site at mile marker 82.5 bayside, is a quality company but think the projectIts the first chain store going in since big-box lawsuit was struckISLAMORADABy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com KEY WESTAmong the scheduled events for SantaCon Key West today is to see how many Santas can fit into the Worlds Smallest Bar on Duval Street. The 2012 record is 42.Santa takes over Key WestKey West joins more than 300 other cities in 44 countries today in hosting a SantaCon event, the first of which was held in San Francisco, Calif., in 1994. SantaCon Key West, organized on FaceBook, is in its fifth year and is essentially a Christmas-themed bar crawl with participants urged to dress as Santa or one of his support staff (Mrs. Claus, elves, reindeer, etc.). Contacted through online social media, the local event organizer would only identify himself as Kris Kringle. Five years ago a bunch of people got together and started doing it, Kringle said. Its a bar crawl for absolutely no reason. Its not a fundraiser for anything. We just have a great time and people really enjoy it. In 2007, more than 13,000 Santas descended on a charity event in Ulster, Ireland. Kringle said last years Key West SantaCon boasted around 250 Santas and he expects the crowd to grow today. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. at the Conch Republic Seafood Co., 631 Greene St., then at 7 p.m. moves to the Worlds Smallest Bar, 124 Duval St. The goal of that stop is to see how many Santas you can get into the bar, Kringle said. Last year it was 42.At 8 p.m., the group moves to the numerous bars around Caroline and Duval streets and ends up at Cowboy Bill, 624 Duval, for Santa bull riding, which is worth the price of admission, although there isnt one.The original event was put on by the San Francisco Cacophony Society and has spread around the globe. Organized through www .santaconinfo.com, there are a number of suggested rules, foremost: Santa does not make children cry.

Agnew, better known as Ken, died Monday at his Marathon home after a long illness. He was 86.Ken was a down-toearth guy who loved to fly, said Mike Puto, a friend of 40 years. He was very safety conscious but sometimes it seemed like he was flying below sea level. Agnew often was seen carrying a heavy video camera to record newsworthy events, from crashes that closed bridges to prestigious fishing tournaments. He worked on a freelance contract with just about every network-affiliated television station in Miami, so his aerial and ground photography occasionally wound up on national news.In November 1970, he flew the brother of a hopeful East German defector over the Florida Straits for several days to look for an expected passenger ship. When they spotted it en route to Cuba, a chartered boat was alerted and headed out to deep water to tag alongside the ship.The East German then jumped from ship to make the rendezvous. Three other East Germans aboard saw what was happening and made a split-second decision to leap, joining the escape. All were recovered from the water safely and taken to Key West.

Shes owned it for the past seven years.The 53-year-old Islamorada woman has polio and is mentally challenged. When her trike was stolen from the front yard of her Orange Lane house earlier this week, her brother Miguel Lloren was furious and went on a mission to get it back. His sister was distraught, hysterical really, and Lloren wanted to make it better. He hopped on his bike and went around the area telling his neighbors that his sisters trike was stolen and asked them to be on the lookout for it.One of the people Lloren ran into that day was Michael J. Murphy, owner of All Tropical Construction. He was inspecting a sewer lateral line his crew was digging on Canal Street, by Coral Shores High School. Lloren asked Murphy and his men if they saw anyone riding around on the trike.Murphy was outraged that someone would take the trike. He had seen Napoles riding by almost daily and was impressed by her determination to live independently.I said, Are you kidding me. Someone stole that womans bike that we see riding up and down the street every day, Murphy said. I was pissed. That was her freedom, and someone stole it from her in the middle of the night.Murphy gave Lloren an order. Wait here 15 minutes.He drove his truck north about two miles to Key Largo Bicycle and Adventure Tours, which rents and sells bikes and organizes Keys wide bicycle tours.I asked Joey [owner Joe Biondoletti], Do you have any three-wheel bikes? He said he had one left, Murphy said.After Murphy told Biondoletti why he wanted to buy the trike, Biondoletti sold it to him at cost. He made no profit from the sale. The trike retailed for more than $400 and Biondoletti sold it to Murphy for $320. Biondoletti said he knows Napoles and her family and was glad to help any way he could. Like everyone else in this community, we like to help out when we can, Biondoletti said.Murphy drove back to the construction site and picked up Lloren, who noticed the trike in the bed of the pickup truck.It replaces one stolen from woman with polioBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYS Photo by MIGUEL LLORENMichael Murphy stands with Sylvia Napoles, who is sitting on an adult tricycle Murphy bought for her after hers was stolen.See Publix, 3ASee Trike, 2ASee Agnew, 3A
He just kept saying Oh my God, oh my God, Murphy said. When the two men showed up at Napoles house with the new trike, she didnt quit comprehend what was going on. The first words out of her mouth were, I cant pay for this. She didnt understand that it was a gift, Lloren said. But the positive reality of the situation soon settled in.I was sad that my bike got stolen and I cried about it, Napoles said. My brother and everyone put a smile back on my face. Thank you all.Lloren recalls how angry he was seeing his sister in tears, and how this fueled his goal of getting her trike back. But, faith is an important part of his life, and the kindness and generosity demonstrated by Murphy and Biondoletti reminded him that there are plenty of good people out there to outweigh the bad. Now there are tears of joy, not sorrow, on my sisters face, he said.For more information on All Tropical Construction, go to www.alltropicalconstruc tion.com.

Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt could have a scheduling conflict come Jan. 14.Thats the date of the Marathon City Councils first meeting of 2014. Its also one of two dates (Jan. 13 and 14) the Marco Island City Council plans to interview finalists for its top municipal job.Hernstadt is one of five finalists for the manager job on Marco Island. He declined comment about his application following Thursday nights Marathon council meeting.Marco Island, near Naples, has a population of around 16,800. Marathons population is around 8,400.According to a Thursday Marco Eagle newspaper report, the Marco Island council plans to decide on how many of its manager finalists it will interview when it meets Jan. 6. The city plans to contact candidates and explain the process.It appears Hernstadt stands a good chance of being chosen. He applied through an initial headhunting firm around September, but the Marco council apparently found most of the 21 names on that list unimpressive.We didnt find too many we actually liked a lot. One of the ones we liked a lot was Roger Hernstadt. He had almost all of the attributes were looking for, Marco Island Councilman Larry Honig told the Keynoter .Several council members apparently remembered Hernstadt after a second headhunting firm returned another list of names, which it also didnt care for, on Dec. 2.Larry Sacher, vice chairman of the Marco council, said he attempted to meet with Hernstadt prior to that council meeting but that Hernstadt told him he was uncomfortable meeting unless he knew he was a finalist for the manager job. That led Sacher to bring up his name in the second round of looking at candidates.I raised the question of could we consider somebody who I believe still has an interest but didnt apply due to confidentiality reasons, he said. We basically had five [council members] who knew who I was talking about.The council voted, 7-0, to add Hernstadt as a finalist. It would probably be Marathons loss if we were able to steal him, but thats the nature of the business, Sacher said. Hernstadt was hired in Marathon on Jan. 26, 2010. He earns $145,000 annually and his contract runs through June 30, 2015. Marco Island Manager Jim Riviere vacated his job on Sept. 30. He was making $150,000 annually.City manager is looking west to new positionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON HERNSTADTCouncil rejects variance appealIt appears the court system will decide the legality of a proposed zip-line course at Marathons Crane Point Museum and Nature Center.The Marathon City Council on Thursday upheld a July ruling by the citys advisory Planning Commission that Planning Director George Garrett was within his purview to issue a 25 percent height variance for the proposed $1.1 million zip-line course.The appeal was filed by Beverly Welber and James Platt of Marathon, Joan Borel of Summerland Key and Deb Curlee of Cudjoe Key. They were represented by attorney Henry Morgenstern.The variance is for up to four of the nine zip-line towers, which would allow them to be up to 46.25 feet tall. The citys standard height limit is 37 feet.The arguments were technical in nature, but boiled down to Morgensterns contention that the citys own code specifies that a variance could only by granted if it is the minimum necessary to make possible the use of the property.Zip lines arent necessary for the use of the property, Morgenstern pointed out. Morgenstern also pointed to a different section of the code regarding approval standards for variances. Those include:Special circumstances: Because of the exceptional narrowness, shallowness or shape of the specific piece of property.Hardships: Other extra ordinary and exceptional situations or conditions of the property and/or location of surroundings.No detriment: The relief would not create a substantial detriment to the public good [or] substantially impair affected natural resources.Use authorized: The variance will not authorize a use or activity that is not otherwise expressly authorized by the regulation governing the parcel of property. They didnt even try to apply those standards. It would not meet those criteria, Morgenstern said.Assistant City Attorney Michael Marshall insisted that all this discussion about hardship is completely irrelevant.Those arent the standards that apply. The standards that do apply are, Is there competent and substantial evidence to support the decision, he said. Marshall intimated that with the conditional use for a zip-line already approved and not in dispute, a variance is essentially the minimum necessary condition to operate it. The council vote was unanimous, despite Council man Rich Keating making his opposition to the project known. Even if we dont believe this is going to succeed, thats not our issue to discuss, he said. Zip-line opponents indicated their next course of action would be a lawsuit.Tower heights now are likely headed to courtBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON ZIP LINEHernstadt scheduled for Marco job interview
is too large for Islamorada.I love Publix, said David Makepeace. I love it so much, I dont mind driving 20 minutes [to the Key Largo location] to get there. Makepeace and others also worried about the potential danger caused by the increased traffic the store is expected to generate.Several property owners who live behind the planned building on Knowles Street hired an attorney, Tucker Gibbs, to try to block the project. Gibbs said village Planning staff, which recommended council members approve the site plan, miscalculated the amount of parking spaces needed for the project. The plan calls for 140 spaces. Gibbs said 40 more are needed, according to the villages comprehensive plan.Gibbs and urban planner Mark Alvarez, working with Gibbs, also said nearby residents would be impacted by noise, odor and privacy issues if the store is built. But despite more spirited and numerous con than pro arguments, the five-member council voted 4-1 to approve the Publix site plan. Councilman Ken Philipson voted against it because he still has concerns about safety in the proposed stores parking lot and about fuel trucks being able to drive down Russell Street, which separates the southern end of the property from the campus of Island Christian School. Still, Philipson said the project will be good for Islamoradas tax base and jobs market. He voted no after he knew it had enough votes to pass. His no vote was to try to get developer, Equity Development Group, to address his issues as the project moves forward. If Philipson were the deciding vote, he said he would have voted yes. The site plan covers a series of properties that used to be the Coral Grill restaurant and two office buildings. The northern part of the 2.6acre project borders on the former Fish Bowl bowling alley. Publix is in the process of negotiating a cross-access agreement with the defunct bowling alleys new owners. Equity would knock down existing commercial buildings for Publix. escape from overhead for a CBS News story. Ken was like an early public-relations guy, Puto said. He could film an event and had the connections to get it on the air. During the days of the Marathon Dolphin Scramble, a wild sprint by boaters to catch a dolphin and be the first to return it to the finish line at Sisters Creek, Agnew flew overhead so the late Charlie Anderson could broadcast the action live over WFFG radio.When John F. Kennedy Jr. and his wife died in a 1999 plane crash near Marthas Vineyard, Agnew was quoted at length in a Chicago Tribune story about the perils of night flying over dark water. On a hazy dark night, youd better be on instruments or you will lose it, Agnew told the Tribune. He described how the wrong reaction to a make a correction could easily send an aircraft into a graveyard spiral.Agnew, who served as manager of Florida Keys Marathon Airport (then known as Marathon Airport) for a time, is survived by his wife Nancy.

Since Dec. 6, five brown pelicans have been found dead with their throats slashed in the Lower Keys and Maya Totman, director of Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue on Big Pine Key, said Friday shes aware of nine similar mutilated birds. Totman said she hasnt been able to catch the other pelicans that were spotted last Sunday and Wednesday near the Venture Out resort on Cudjoe Key and off Summerland Key. Lower Keys fishermen around the Niles Channel and Kemp Channel bridges also reported seeing slashed pelicans. Im just so upset, she said. I tried to catch one [Thursday] night and had barely any sleep. Were working around the clock. These poor birds, its just terrible, she said. Im just heartbroken. I dont understand how a person could do this. My major concern right now is to get the ones we can and help them. Totman said she is coordinating her efforts with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and local fishermen. The first slashing report came in on Dec. 6 from Summerland charter captain Jim Sharpe, who spotted a brown pelican on his oceanside dock having difficulty eating a ballyhoo.Each time the pelican tried to swallow, the bait fish would fall out of its large pouch and onto the ground. After about the seventh attempt, Sharpe said, he put a cast net over the water bird and made a gruesome discovery.It looked like the pelicans throat had been cut with a knife, Sharpe said. And it was not just one clean slice, but two cuts about six inches apart, creating a large hole in the pouch. Tuesday, Totman took the bird to veterinarian Don Harris, director of the Avian and Exotic Animal Medical Center in Miami, for surgery I firmly believe it to be malicious, Harris said. The birds pouch was cleanly lacerated from behind the point of the beak, all the way back to the glottis about 10 inches. The windpipe was dangling from the birds neck, almost like it was breathing out of a snorkel, Harris said.To repair the pouch, Harris said, he ran a continuous suture all the way up like lacing a shoe so the bird could eat and become stabilized.In 1970, U.S. Fish and Wildlife listed the brown pelican as endangered after pesticide contamination almost wiped them out. In 1985, the population in Florida had rebounded to 60,000 and it was taken off the Endangered Species List in that part of its range.However, the brown pelican still is federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. Conviction for harming each bird under that law is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and/or a $15,000 fine.Totman urges anyone who sees suspicious activity or a wounded bird to get in touch with her at 872-1982. You can also call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions wildlife hotline at (888) 404-3922. Keynoter staff supplemented this report.Key Largo man wants on bug boardPolitical candidates in the Keys often are longtime residents whose names are familiar to a large portion of the voting populous. Thats not the case for Dennis Caltagirone, whos been a full-time Key Largo resident since October 2010 fewer years than the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board term for which he filed to run on Dec. 2.Caltagirone, 69, seeks the District 5 seat held by Upper Keys attorney Jack Bridges. Bridges will not seek re-election to a four-year term and is likely to seek a county Circuit Court judgeship in 2014.Caltagirone said hes not a professional politician but is interested in public service. Im not in it for the little bit of money thats involved. We made our plans to be able to live in paradise and we did that independently, he said, referring to wife, Lee. You venture in because you want to serve the public. Ive done that my whole life as an educator and serving on all types of committees and boards, he added. Caltagirone said hes taught high school English all over Florida for 40-plus years, most recently in Hollywood in Broward County. He was also a theater instructor who studied at the Globe Theatre in England and authored a textbook on the subject. In addition, Caltagirone said hes made a habit of immersing himself in any community in which hes lived. The Keys are no different, as hes a Florida Keys Council of the Arts board member, Friends of the Key Largo Cultural Center board member, Rotary Club member and is involved with the Key Players community theater in Key Largo. Caltagirone said he and Bridges are neighbors, which could explain the interest in seeking office. We talk frequently about what goes on, the candidate said. To get a better idea of what Mosquito Control does, Caltagirone met with district Director Michael Doyle and toured the agencys 107th Street office in Marathon. He says its not a stretch to go from a patron of the arts to Mosquito Control candidate. Its all quality of life, it really is, he said. I know this is an outdoor place. My wife is a diver and we spend a great deal of time outdoors. A basic tenet of quality of life is not to be chewed on.Caltagirone seeks seat now held by BridgesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday, December 14, 2013 11050 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL 33050 JOSH MOTHNER(305) 942-9519 12399 Overseas Hwy, Slip 32Marathon 214 W.

For the second time, the Marathon City Council on Thursday said amen to prayers before council meetings. On Nov. 26, Council woman Ginger Snead proposed instituting invocations at the start of council meetings. That passed 4-1 with Councilman Mark Senmartin voting no; he suggested a moment of silence instead. Thursdays second vote to finalize the prayer ordinance passed by the same 4-1 vote. Several council members alluded to receiving lots of feedback from residents following the first vote, but that was obviously behind the scenes. Thursdays only speaker on the issue was Marathon Church of God Pastor Nick Vaughn, who spoke in favor of invocations to start meetings. But there was apparently enough feedback on the issue that the council had directed City Attorney John Herin to investigate legal precedents. Herin modeled Thursdays resolution finalizing invocations after one approved in Lakeland. Herins firm, Gray Robinson, represented the city of Lakeland in a case in which the Atheists of Florida, in July 2010, sued that city for violating the establishment clause of the First Amendment.The U.S. Court of Appeals 11th Circuit ruled in Lakelands favor, essentially agreeing with a 2010 resolution city lawmakers passed allowing invocations to be open to members of any faith. It had for years been done by exclusively Christian speakers.Ive got all day to pray; I can do it aside from the council meeting, Senmartin said Thursday, adding that numerous religions would go unrepresented.I fear this is going to end up, given our limited pool, with a small group of the same people over and over. I just think this is probably not going to end up in a fair situation for a lot of people, he said.Snead said a moment of silence isnt sufficient and disagreed with Senmartin about religious representation in government meetings. A moment of silence is not what Ive asked for. Its appropriate for when someone has died, she said. I dont think Ive seen a place with more churches in a condensed area in my life.Vaughn told the council hes not interested in converting the audience to his religion.The Monroe County Commission was split Wednesday on whether to extend the contracts of solidwaste contractors for 10 years or put the service out to bid.After lengthy discussion, the board voted 3-2 to extend the current deals, with commissioners Heather Carruthers and Danny Kolhage dissenting. The 10-year deals total $155 million and will see residents rates increase incrementally from $404 per year to $437 per year through 2024. Theyre with four haulers: Waste Management in the Lower Keys.Marathon Garbage Ser vice in the Middle Keys.Keys Sanitary Services in the Upper Keys.Ocean Reef Club Inc. in Ocean Reef. The village of Islamorada has its own solid-waste provider, Advanced Disposal, whose contract is not handled by the county. County officials said Wednesday theyd negotiated vendors down $6.6 million over the past 60 days and $10 million overall.Im happy with these figures. When we look at what the very modest increase would be over 10 years, I think its very good. I dont see any reason not to move forward with this, Commissioner David Rice said.But Carruthers and Kolhage werent convinced. I dont know if we get the best deal unless you put it out on the market, Carruthers said. We have methods in place that if we feel we get the best service from a local vendor, that will be taken into account. Kolhage said the best way would be to research solid-waste options under a sustainability initiative the commission approved recently. County Program Manager Rhonda Haag told the commission it would be one year before a final sustainability action plan is complete. We dont have to do anything right now, this minute, Kolhage said.

This is a permit issued Feb. 28, 1865, allowing Joseph Russell to sail in his small boat for a sponging and fishing voyage off the Keys. The permit was valid for one month and was needed because of the Union navys blockade of the Florida coast during the Civil War. The permit is signed by Charles Howe, collector of customs.Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALOverhaul of DCF must be realizedLETTERS TO THE EDITOROld bridge worth savingMy husband and I have been visiting the Florida Keys for nearly 20 years now. Most recently, we enjoyed several extended winter visits as we enter retirement. We look forward to many more years visiting the Keys, including extended stays.We enjoy the old Seven Mile Bridge for long walks and traffic-free bike rides. We always see some type of wonderful wildlife including birds, turtles and stingrays. The old Seven Mile Bridge is the only way that we can get in a long, traffic-free walk while in the Keys. And what a view, especially at sunset.The survival of the old bridge leading to Pigeon Key is very important to those of us who consider the Keys our winter refuge. We hope the state and county will do everything they can to maintain this important venue for maintaining the health and well-being of Keys residents and visitors alike. We factor in the tax we pay for accommodations when we plan our visits, but we do not mind because you all do such a great job keeping the Keys clean, safe and beautiful. Saving the old Seven Mile will only enhance this reputation for good value. We just left the Keys this past week and plan to return in February. Gosh, I wish I were there right now. Mary Wickens East Lansing, Mich. Editors note: The state Department of Transportation, Monroe County and city of Marathon have signed off on a 30-year, $77 million plan to renovate and maintain the old span.Respect the crocodilesRe: the Dec.7 letter Crocs a Keys nuisance: Let me paraphrase a common statement from park rangers: They were here first, both crocodiles and alligators. We came later and invaded their territory. What does this Tavernier reader want? Eradication of all of our wildlife? As an avid environmentalist, I cringe when people demand simplistic solutions, such as removing centuriesold indigenous animal species. Instead, residents need to use care when leaving pets and children outside. With our constantly diminishing natural back yard, lets be grateful for what we still have. Ina Oost Topper TamaracSay yes to sea cucumbersLimiting the number of sea cucumbers allowed to be harvested daily by the small number of fishermen licensed to harvest live marine animals will make the harvesting unprofitable. I have arthritis, as do many of my fellow Baby Boomers. If sea-cucumber soup would alleviate the pain, fewer sufferers will undergo costly, painful, often infection-producing joint replacements or take large dosages of pain pills that damage the liver and kidneys. Supporting the sea-cucumber aquaculture industry will not only improve the Keys economy but also lower the national health-care costs, which are crippling our economy. Lets compete to come up with the best-tasting recipe for sea-cucumber soup. Jane Marter Duck KeyCoverage was lackingThis week, an iconic business celebrated a re-opening. Im speaking of Dockside Tropical Cafe in Marathon, and nowhere was it mentioned in the Keynoter Shame! This is a favorite location for many locals as well as snowbirds, and to ignore it does a disservice to our community as well as the new owners, who are working so hard to bring it back to life. Dockside has long been a favorite, and we (lots of locals) are thrilled to see her come back to life. It is especially nice that Eric Stone and Kim Hess are the new owners; their enjoyment of and connection to the cruising community will help ensure success. Eric, Kim and the Dockside Tropical Cafe have the support of a Cruising Outpost (formerly Lattitudes & Attitudes Seafaring Magazine), which will mean lots of free international marketing for our community. Their success is our success. So how the Keynoter could have missed an opportunity to support them is surprising and a shame. Pat Witt MarathonChanges for our most vulnerable have to be effective, well-fundedOnce again, the state Legislature must tackle reform of the states child-protection services when it meets next year. If lawmakers fail to get it right, Floridas children will pay the price, as theyve been doing for years. The Department of Children and Families has been overhauled before after deaths of children under its supervision brought public outrage. But this time the reforms must have lasting effects for the sake of Floridas at-risk kids, and that means whatever changes are implemented need adequate funding from state lawmakers and Gov. Rick Scott. Ever since a string of deaths of children already known to DCF occurred this past spring and summer, the agency has been under increasing pressure to improve its investigations and treatment programs for children endangered in their own homes or in foster homes. The agencys chief, David Wilkins, was forced to resign. His interim replacement, Esther Jacobo, from the DCF district overseeing Monroe and Miami-Dade counties, wasted no time in seeking solutions. She hired a Seattle-based foundation, Casey Family Programs, to review the deaths and the agencys handling of the childrens cases. In many instances, the agency simply dropped the ball, allowing endangered children to just disappear off DCFs radar, sometimes with case workers merely taking a parents word for it that everything was OK. That kind of bureaucratic neglect has to be eradicated, period. At a meeting of the state Senates Children, Families and Elder Affairs Committee this week, DCF Assistant Secretary Stephen Pennypacker outlined reforms recommended by the Casey group. First of all, DCF would put two child-protective investigators on each case instead of one. That makes good sense two sets of eyes and ears to determine if a child is in a risky situation and what should be done about it. The use of technology has been increased to prevent investigators from closing cases without making sure of proper follow-up. A safety-plan template has been incorporated into DCFs computer system that doesnt allow a case to be closed if the safety plan is incomplete or unless it has been handed off to a case manager responsible for the next phase. The enhanced technology and use of two investigators per case are being tested in pilot programs in several counties already. Another crucial change is that investigators and case managers wont be allowed to just take a parents word that a threatening environment will improve, such as when a battered spouse promises to take the children and leave home if another domestic-violence incident occurs. These reforms, if strictly enforced and sufficiently funded, could save and improve many kids lives. But its tragic that so many children had to die before DCF sought to reform itself. Miami HeraldThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is writing rules limiting the Keys harvest of sea cucumbers to 200 per day. Theres a limited local market for them, but there is a big Asian market for them as a high-protein delicacy and as a treatment for arthritis. This is braised sea cucumber with mushrooms and a pork leg. Cheers loud for Old Seven Mile approvalResidents from up and down the Keys packed the Marathon Government Center on Wednesday to plead with the Monroe County Commission to approve a $77.5 million funding plan to save a portion of the iconic Old Seven Mile Bridge. Many spoke to the commission, but it was perhaps Miami resident Barbara Gilberts comments that carried the most weight. She told the commission she arrived that morning and learned of the meeting. I dont live here; I just got here today. This morning I was walking the bridge as I always do. Thank you for having the bridge here for many more years, she said to raucous applause.Gilberts and many other comments had the desired effect, as the commission voted 4-1 to move forward with finalizing the agreement. Commissioner Danny Kolhage was the lone dissenter.The following evening, the Marathon City Council voiced unanimous support for the plan, which targets the 2.2-mile portion of the span connecting Marathon to Pigeon Key, at its meeting.The bridge has been closed to auto traffic and fishing for years because the state Department of Transportation has deemed it unsafe.As proposed, DOT would pay $57.2 million toward the cost over 30 years and retain ownership of the bridge. Monroe County would pitch in $14.24 million and Marathon $5.34 million. The money would finance everything from a couple of repaintings to repairing the deck to building a new ramp to Pigeon Key. County Administrator Roman Gastesi was clear that the proposed deal is far from complete and will require further negotiations.Well bring back a formalized agreement when were back here in March, he said, referring to the next commission meeting in Marathon.Developer Pritam Singh went so far as to liken the Old Seven Mile Bridge to the Great Wall of China. I think its really important and history will remember. They might not remember the date or who spoke here, but they will see the result of it. I urge you to work out the deal and take care of that money, he said. Kolhage said a basic disagreement with the direction were taking with our capital program was the reason for his no vote. Were waiting for a report on 400-plus miles of our county roads that havent had any work done for 10 years, he said.Commissioner Heather Carruthers raised concern that a large portion of the county portion of the costs could come via property tax revenue. Thats why we want to continue to have these discussions. Weve never done this before. The first step is this is a pretty good deal; I think we should be celebrating, Gastesi replied, drawing loud applause from the room.County, city sign off on plan, includes DOTBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYChampagne flows at the Marathon Government Center Wednesday after the Monroe County Commission approved the framework of a $77.5 million funding plan to restore the Marathon portion of the Old Seven Mile Bridge.

Ripleys wants your stuffNot sure what to do with that shrunken head thats been taking up space in the closet? Ripleys Believe It or Not! in Key West has a solution. Ripleys Bizarre Buying Bazaar is coming to Ripleys Key West Odditorium in January. Its the fourth stop on a road trip to several cities in the U.S. and Canada to find and acquire items that Ripleys Believe It or Not! believes are worth acquiring. Ripleys Exhibits and Archives Vice President Edward Meyer is coming down to take a look at all items that come in and will make on-the-spot offers for those he deems worthy of being a part of the Ripleys collection. For more than 35 years, Meyer has traveled the world collecting unusual stories and odd items for the company. He has acquired more than 20,000 different artifacts, as well as countless stories for the Ripleys cartoon and books. Were hoping to find oddities, artifacts, relics, strange things from science and nature, unusual artwork the weirder the better, says Meyer and what better place than the Keys? Meyer has purchased more than 100 items from the public at Bizarre Buying Bazaar events, everything from a rare New Guinea widows finger chopper to a motorcycle created from bones to a lamp made from a taxidermy chicken. Even if Ripleys doesnt want to buy what you think is worth selling, you might still get an appraisal not of the items worth but of how odd Meyer thinks it is. I think Key West has a lot of potential because its rich in history, he said. I would love to see some pirate and historic nautical items turn up at this event. The Bizarre Buying Bazaar is set for Jan. 17 and 18 at the Ripleys Key West Odditorium, 108 Duval St. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Those planning to attend to try to sell their goods are encouraged to RSVP to Angela Johnson at Johnson@ripleys.com in advance and provide some details on the item. That will allow Ripleys to see what they can find out about the item in advance.VP is coming to Keys for buying event Saturday, December 14, 2013 7A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com 12-14 lb.

Florida led the way, with 17,908 people signing up since Oct. 1.Nationally, more than 364,000 eligible Americans have selected a health plan using the federaland statebased online insurance exchanges that are central to the Affordable Care Act, according to government estimates.More than one in three people who selected a health plan, or 137,204 people, did so using www.healthcare .gov, which serves 36 states, including Florida. The majority of people who signed up, or 227,478, used state-based websites that serve 14 states and the District of Columbia. The improved numbers for the federal exchange reflect extensive technical upgrades to www.health care.gov and a tremendous demand among consumers for affordable health insurance, Michael Hash, director of HHS office of health reform, told reporters during a conference call Tuesday. Through end of November, Hash said, the federal and state sites have received more than 39 million visitors.By DANIEL CHANGdchang@MiamiHerald.comHEALTH CARE

Column, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Qualls leads with 44 pointsIt would have been a really close basketball game Tuesday if Marathon High School junior JohnNisha Qualls were playing Greater Miami Academy on her own.The Dolphins top scorer turned in a dominant 44-point performance, helping the team to a 70-47 road win and improving their record to 7-2.Coach Deanna Klaus said Marathon jumped out to a 24-5 first-quarter lead, but struggled a bit in the second. We went through a little rough patch and let them back in the game, she said. Still, the Dolphins held a 3628 lead at the break. We came back even more determined to start the third period and led 59-33 at the end of three, the coach said. Klaus said she emptied the bench in the fourth and allowed many reserve players to play significant minutes.Qualls 44 points are a new school record. Gardine Raymond added 21 points, while Yailin Nieda had three and Dixie Murphy hit two free throws. I am always excited to see how hard these young ladies play. They want to be successful and are determined to win, Klaus said.The Dolphins were scheduled to visit Westwood Christian School on Friday, but results were not available.She dominates as team moves to 7-2 record with latest victoryMARATHON GIRLS HOOPSBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Firebirds again stop ConchsThe Key West High boys soccer team hit the field at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium Wednesday night with a jauntiness that seemed to radar high hopes. Losers to District 16-3A opponent Doral Academy earlier in the season by a 5-0 score, the Conchs were looking for revenge. But Doral once again proved to be too much for Key West. The Firebirds who had speed, accurate passing and resounding kicks won, 3-0. Although low on scoring chances, the Conchs held their own until, with three minutes were left in the first half, Andrew Medici, after a flurry of headers, swung his leg high and thumped the ball past keeper Christian Lee for a 1-0 lead. When the Conchs came to their bench for the halftime break, senior Justin Mock said, Everybody stop saying its your fault lets score a goal. Coach Marc Pierre was calm. Be aggressive, be smart, we can play with this team, he said. Just kicking the ball is not going to do us any good. We had three shots, they had seven. Talk, talk, talk.He concluded: Were not going to lose. But it wouldnt be the Conchs night.Eight minutes into the second half, Firebirds senior Daniel Castano scored amid a crowd in front of the net. Key West struggled to get off shots, and when it did, they were easily handled. With 15 minutes remaining, Doral wrapped up its victory when Castano who was tall and vocal drilled a shot from beyond 35 yards that rocketed over a leaping Lee into the top of the net for an insurmountable 3-0 lead. While Doral remained the top team in the district, the Conchs lost for the first time in five games. They fell to 6-3-2 overall and 4-2-1 in the district.Conch girls winCaila DeAbreu scored four goals to lead the Key West girls soccer team to a 7-5 District 16-3A victory Wednesday afternoon over visiting Doral Academy.

Fins over .500A blowout win Tuesday evening in Miami put the Marathon High School basketball team in a territory it hasnt seen the past couple of years over .500. The Dolphins defeated Greater Miami Academy, 6022, and improved to 5-4. Marathon has won its past three games since opening the season 2-4.Coach Kevin Freeman said the team jumped out on Greater Miami in a big way, leading 20-2 after the first quarter. All five Dolphin starters scored at least one basket.Mike Allen and Damian Chavez led the way with six points each in the opening 8:00. Freeman said he put a fresh five players in for the second quarter and Marathon continued to dominate. The score was 40-8 at halftime. Shemar Fantroy led the second unit with eight points in the quarter, while Richie Wells had five. The starters re-entered the game for the third quarter and played the first four minutes. By the time they left, there was a running clock in place and the Dolphins were on their way to an easy victory. The score was 56-20 after the third quarter and neither team did much offensively in the final quarter. Freeman said all 13 players got a chance to get in the game. Some people that hardly get minutes got a lot of minutes, so theyll have some game-time experience, he said. We still turned the ball over 15 times, which doesnt please me, but we played good defense.Fantroy led Marathon with 10 points, three assists and two steals. Cooper Chaplin had eight points, seven rebounds and three assists, while Nelson Rojas had four points and seven steals.Junior Will Wolfe scored his first varsity points in the fourth quarter, netting a pair of free throws.

Our kids hold their own with these big centers until the third quarter when our big guys [Luis Acosta and Anthony Cromwell] get in foul trouble and we have to go small, Key West coach Tony McDowell said Friday morning. But it wasnt just Mourning nine other Ransom players scored. They were knocking down shots they couldnt miss, McDowell said. The Conchs, who played without injured Lanre Scott, were led by guard Chase Renner, who had 14 points. Nathaniel Hayes was next with nine. A bright spot for Key West was the play of point guard Ziyah Jefferson, who, brought up from the JV team, made his varsity debut. He scored four points but played a good floor game, McDowell said. The Conchs will have two home games next weekend against Ida Baker at 7:30 Friday night and at 2 Saturday afternoon against Park Vista.Girls loseThe Key West girls team lost to Ransom, 55-47, despite 23 points from Tanisha Multy.

The Dolphins fell 2-1 to Florida Christian School in Miami Tuesday, and 2-0 to Coral Springs Charter School on Thursday.

The Patriots scored toward the end of the first half and Marathon tied it 8 minutes into the second half. Raul Sorio put a through ball to Cole Daniels for the goal.The game remained tied until the final minutes, when the Patriots scored off a long through ball from the back line.Murphy said the Dolphins created their most scoring opportunities on the season.We lost to them 5-0 in our first game so it was nice to see how much we improved. Florida Christians coach also told our players after the game we were a different team than what they played in our first meeting, he said.On Thursday, Coral Springs scored its first goal off a corner kick at the 22:00 mark. The second came at the 35:00 mark off a through ball that beat the Dolphins defense.Murphy said the Dolphins had several scoring opportunities but couldnt capitalize.

The season is upon us for celebrating, which means lots of parties, libations and festive food. If you are hosting a holiday get-together or a soiree to ring in 2014, here are a few tips to help you plan.The decorBy now, your home is likely decorated for the holidays but, if not, dont overdo it before your party. Your guests are coming to see you and enjoy your company and wont be spending much time in front of your Christmas tree.If youre planning to serve a sitdown dinner, spend your energy decorating the table with festive items. A small topiary or rosemary tree on your table or outside your front door looks great strung with lights. Many Keys nurseries carry these trees this time of year. I recently bought one at the Banyan Tree at 81197 Overseas Highway in Islamorada and had it potted for less than $100.The drinksThe drinks you serve are as important as the food. The rule of thumb when considering what to purchase is 50 percent of your guests will drink wine, 30 percent beer and 20 percent mixed drinks. You can simplify your bar by serving only beer and wine, or instead of a full bar, offer a signature drink such as eggnog or pomegranate martinis. Not only are signature drinks more festive, but theyll save you money so youre not buying a full bar of liquors and mixers that might not be used.Of course, for New Years Eve, dont forget the champagne. There is nothing more fabulous than ringing in a new year with some bubbly. For something different, offer a DIY champagne bar with fruit juices, including orange and pomegranate, and fresh fruit such as raspberries, blueberries and strawberries.The best time to buy your holiday party libations is during sales. Most local liquor stores have a day each week during which they offer big discounts.The menuWhen deciding on the menu for your holiday party, be sure to make a very good list of all the ingredients youll need and preparation times needed for each recipe.Many recipes can be made ahead of time and refrigerated overnight to save on preparation time the day of the party. There is nothing worse than starting to cook only to realize you forgot to buy half the ingredients, so a good list prior to shopping will ensure this doesnt happen to you.Consider a nontraditional menu, with a Florida Keysthemed menu including shrimp, lobster, crab claws and sushi. Also, hosting a party at a nontraditional time such as for brunch can be a lot of fun. SimplifySimplify your hosting responsibilities by getting a little help from a caterer if you can. Hiring a bartender or server can make all the difference between you enjoying or working at your party. They will ensure all your guests are served and help you clean up afterward. Also consider having a caterer provide all the food for your event. The holidays are already busy and stressful, and parties should be fun. Leah Maki is a fashionobsessed style blogger.

LIVING BRIEFSTurtle experts conveneDozens of veterinarians and others who have an interest in protected sea turtles converged on the Keys last week for the Turtle Hospitals 22nd sea-turtle workshop at the Turtle Hospital. They came from all over the world Australia, Brazil, Bonaire, Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Belize, and Mexico with one common goal: To better help sea turtles survive.On Dec. 7, biologists and veterinarians from universities, wildlife agencies, rehabilitation centers and other organizations gathered at the Marathon Government Center to hear about and share developments in the sea-turtle field. The next day, Turtle Hospital staff learned techniques for performing a sea-turtle necropsy in a specialized lab led by the University of Floridas Dr. Brian Stacy.Participants discussed possible reasons for sea-turtle mortality, and samples from dead turtles were analyzed to help them understand how to help turtles in the future. Also, lasers were brought down from New York for a surgical-techniques lab taught by Marathon Veterinary Hospital owner Dr. Doug Mader. Veterinarians learned how to best remove fibropapilloma tumors from green sea turtles in the hands-on lab.Release todayThe Turtle Hospital has planned a turtle release for noon today at Higgs Beach behind the Salute restaurant, 1000 Atlantic Blvd., Key West.Heading to freedom is Hunter, an adult loggerhead. Hunter was found floating off Bamboo Bank in Florida Bay on Aug. 8, 2012. He was extremely underweight and had lockjaw, most likely due to an infection. That prevented Hunter from being able to open his beak to feed.X-rays at the Turtle Hospital revealed Hunter had ingested fishing hooks that Mader removed. After almost three months of rehabilitation, Hunter was able to open his mouth to eat. He was treated with vitamins, antibiotics and a healthy diet of squid and fish and is now a healthy 220 pounds (up from 170 pounds at intake) and ready to return to his ocean home.They share their knowledge with othersMARATHONWorkshop participants attend a presentation Dec. 7 at the Marathon Government Center.
