Charles John Eimers, 61 of Birch Run, Mich., died on life support at Lower Keys Medical Center after he fell unconscious while police were cuffing him on South Beach six days earlier, according to numerous incident reports.It all started when Officer Gary Celcer saw Eimers change lanes in the intersection of North Roosevelt Boulevard and Kennedy Drive.Celcer stopped Eimers at the Pizza Hut on North Roosevelt, but during the traffic stop, Eimers took off toward Old Town around 8:19 p.m. Celcer stopped chasing Eimers, but alerted other officers on patrol who tracked Eimers through Bahama Village, then down to Duval Street where he pulled his silver 2002 PT Cruiser onto South Beach at the Southernmost Beach Resort. When he arrived at South Beach, Celcer wrote the Eimers was on his stomach on the ground and, I noted his head to be blue in color. That description is contained in other officers reports.

Police began performing CPR before turning Eimers over to local EMTs. Key West police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said its a matter of process for FDLE to investigate any death in custody. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said: We will look at the use of force if anything criminal occurred. We do not look at if [departmental] policies were followed. Plessinger said thats usually left up to the local police department. Crean said the department would wait for FDLEs analysis before any internal policy review goes forward. Crean also said the officers involved are coordinating with the Police Benevolent Association union. The same way that in an abundance of caution they checked with FDLE so did they check with their union.

Boot Key boat residents to sound offBoot Key Harbor residents fed up with what they view as excessive enforcement will have a chance to air grievances today at a meeting hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Several liveaboard residents showed up for last weeks Marathon City Council meeting and complained about being targeted by FWC officers for the past two to three weeks in the mooring field. City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the council that the city brokered a public meeting for FWC to explain itself to harbor residents. The unexpected enforce ment, as well as the means and method, raised some questions. Our economy is based on tourism and its very important they have a good experience because we want them to come back, he said. Resident Cory Young told the council he lives on a boat in the harbor with his wife and two young children. He said hes been awoken at night to spotlights in my boat window. This began on Thanksgiving Day and has continued since then, he said. Theres a difference between patrolling and harassing, and it feels like the latter. Boot Key Harbor resident Gary Bush told the Keynoter hes been shadowed by an FWC officer numerous times, and that the enforcement is a main topic of conversation around here for two or three weeks. The times Ive seen him, hes in an unmarked grey boat with a civilian profile; nothing that says its an official vessel, Bush said. Its not so much his job but the way hes doing it. FWC Capt. David Dipre told the Keynoter the agency has not targeting Boot Key residents. We go to where the activity or the need is, he said. If we find a number of violations, it indicates patrol may be needed in that area. Well sit down on Wednesday and go into more detail on it. Dipre said FWC officers patrol the harbor to make sure that residents marine sanitation devices (toilets) and safety equipment are in compliance, and that registrations are up to date. Our officers should be in Boot Key Harbor doing their job, he said. Todays meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the City of Marathon Marina near mile marker 49. Liveaboards say FWC enforcement too harshBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comENVIRONMENTMiami man wanted in office burglariesA video-surveillance camera at an Islamorada shopping plaza recorded a Dec. 8 burglary in progress, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Now detectives are looking for a suspect identified as Orlando Mora, 54, of Miami. Mora is currently wanted for two counts each of burglary, possession of burglary tools, criminal mischief and grand theft, Sheriffs Office information officer Becky Herrin said Monday. Detective Robert Dosh said in a report that video shows Mora breaking the front-door locks on two businesses, Innovative Technology Solu tions and Blue Water Weddings, both in a commercial building near mile marker 81. He took a laptop computer from Blue Water Weddings and two television sets from Innovative Technology Solutions, according to the Sheriffs Office. Mora was seen loading the items into a white Ford pickup truck. People with information about Moras location should contact the Sheriffs Office, or call Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys hotline at 1800-346-TIPS.Suspect IDed as Orlando MoraCRIMEPolice search for pelican killerThree brown pelicans found in the Lower Keys since Dec. 6 with their throat slashed are recovering from a surgery that will hopefully allow them to hunt and feed in the wild again.A total of five pelicans have died so far from similar injuries while Maya Totman, director of the Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue on Big Pine Key, has spotted seven others off Summerland Key, near the Venture Out resort on Cudjoe Key and near the Niles Channel and Kemp Channel bridges. The first 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. Totman took that bird to bird to veterinarian Don Harris, director of the Avian and Exotic Animal Medical Center in Miami, for surgery on Dec. 10. Then on Saturday she captured two more slashed pelicans near Venture Out and returned them to the Keys following a visit with Harris on Monday. We still dont know who and we dont why, Totman told the Keynoter. Its important that we try to catch them so they dont die of starvation a horrible death. 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 the birds under that law is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and/or a $15,000 fine; penalties for multiple violations can be stacked.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.This report is supplemented with material from The Miami Herald.Total of five of the protected birdsANIMAL ABUSE MORA Keynoter StaffThe first report came in on Dec. 6 from Summerland charter captain Jim Sharpe.

Hertzog, 33, of Macungie, Pa., also was arrested by Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies on charges of disorderly intoxication, a misdemeanor.An arrest report says Hertzog was detained by security guards at the Postcard Inn Resort at Holiday Isle after the suspect pulled a fire alarm and kicked a glass entrance door until its lock broke.He also is accused of forcibly kicking several hotel-room doors and knocking down a resort guest who objected to having his door bashed open after 1 a.m. Saturday. Mr. Hertzog appeared very intoxicated [or] impaired, Deputy Thomas Amador said in his report. A total of eight doors were found to have shoe prints matching the...suspects shoe print on them.Mr. Hertzog then punched a light fixture, causing it to shatter and fall off of the wall, the report continues.A list of estimated damages includes $500 to the entrance door; $850 for a hotel rooms door, lock and frame; $200 for a broken fire alarm; and $250 for the punched fixture.

The total 2013-14 ask was up nearly $20,000 from fiscal year 2012-13, when 18 nonprofits requested $173,688.

The burglar then warned the man not to call the police, and left the home.A suspect Manuel H. Argomaniz, 19 later was arrested after an investigation headed by Detective David Brummer. Argomaniz was booked into jail on a litany of charges, including committing an armed home invasion, and being a convicted felony in possession of gun. He remains in custody with no bond allowed. According to the Sheriffs Office report, the Stock Island victim said he heard his front door open and found a burglar inside. After threatening him with a handgun, the burglar warned the resident not to call the police and left the home. Moments later, several area residents heard what sounded like a gunshot. A .45-caliber shell casing later was found in the street. No one was injured. Video-surveillance cameras in the area recorded Argomaniz riding a bicycle away from the scene, the Sheriffs Office reported. Key West Police told Brummer that in a separate incident from the same night, a city man said a suspect he knew to be Argomaniz had threatened him with a gun. Information led to Argomanizs arrest near a Third Avenue business on Stock Island. Argomaniz was found in possession of a handgun, and a bicycle that turned out to have been taken from another Miriam Street residence. Detectives were checking the possibility that Argomanizs gun had been stolen in another recent burglary.Argomaniz did not list an address but was arrested locally in September and November of 2012 on counts of burglary and theft. When jailed Saturday, he was wanted on several warrants charging him with violating his probation. Additional charges are pending.Additional charges pending against ArgomanizCRIMEKeynoter StaffFlorida Keys Community Colleges Faculty Council received some pushback from college President Jonathan Gueverra and the Board of Trustees over an evaluation of the administration distributed to teaching staff on Dec. 9. Sharon Farell, a history professor and vice president of the Faculty Council, described the anonymous survey as informational during a Thursday trustees meeting on the colleges main Stock Island campus. The Faculty Council hopes the survey results will identify problems between staff and administrators so the two sides could use them to address any identified issues. A letter from Faculty Council President Dawn Ellis, who was at a conference in Orlando and did not attend the trustees meeting, gives context for the evaluations: With the continuing decline in enrollment and the high attrition rate of faculty, the necessity of knowing this information has become ever more valuable. Since December 2012, Board of Trustees minutes reflect six resignations. College spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard confirmed three more resignations that will go into effect by the end of the year. In the same time frame, three faculty positions were eliminated and one faculty member was fired. Considering a standing faculty count between 20 and 25 there are currently 23 full-time faculty members thats an attrition rate of 56 percent in the past 12 months. Singling out resignations, the rate is 39 percent.Gueverra, speaking about the faculty-led evaluation of his administration, stressed to trustees the mechanism is unofficial and not vetted by him. This survey was never approved as an official instrument, which is why it has never come to the board, he said. Asked by board Chairman Bobby Stoky what the goal of the survey is, Farell said, I believe it will improve communications at the college and I believe that it will help.At the end of the day, Gueverra told trustees, I do what I think is the best job possible being open and transparent. This board is the group I report to. Youre my evaluators. Im not sure what this is intending to accomplish.Trustee Tim Koenig, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott in August, questioned how the faculty can unilaterally call for, then disseminate, a survey.This is not an unusual thing, Farell said, adding that a similar survey is used by institutions such as the University of Texas and University of Michigan. The evaluations were due back to the Faculty Council yesterday. From there, Ellis will work with the colleges Human Resources Depart ment to compile and summarize the results, then present them to Gueverra.Gueverra rejects notion of surveyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE CRIME

And finally, would the majority direct City Attorney John Herin to give them estimates of costs that taxpayers would likely incur defending ensuing lawsuits, and would they agree to pick up the tab?Buddy Klein Lower Matecumbe KeyPerformance was rivetingThe spirit of Christmas came to Key Largo Dec. 5 at St. Justin the Martyr Catholic Church as Seraphic Fire, the only classical ensemble that has ever been nominated for two Grammy awards, mesmerized a full house with an amazing choral presentation. Accompanied by harpist Jacqueline Kerrod, the 13-member choir filled the chapel with voices that blended like clear honey as they sang Christmas carols both familiar and not so familiar. Led by founder and artistic director Patrick Dupre Quigley, this vanguard of a new generation of young Baroque specialists concluded the 90-minute performance with A Candlelight Carol by John Rutter and was rewarded with a standing ovation.Seraphic Fires mission is to present high-quality performances of under-performed music [and] to encourage the ... advancement of musicians by providing a forum for the development and presentation of their talents [and] promote community well-being through musical education programs.In that vein, many music students from area schools were treated to the performance. It was sponsored by Keys Ahead, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Key Largo. Founding board member and President Suzie Hammaker was the driving force behind bringing Seraphic Fire to Key Largo. Suzie knows no limits to giving to this community. Approximately 350 people who attended must surely thank her for making this splendid event possible.

Bruce and Mary Bush Sugarloaf KeyChurchs lights are stunningIf you want to pause and capture the feeling of Christmas along with the music and love that Christmas bring and have it all wrapped into one, make a stop at the San Pablo Catholic Church Prayer Gardens on 122nd Street oceanside in Marathon, between the church and parish hall. This amazing lighted garden is the work of Paul Navara and his team of helpers who happily assist him each season in preparing the gardens with more than half a million lights. Paul is the groundskeeper at San Pablo Catholic Church and each year he starts his Christmas light project with love, energy and dedication, as it takes a few weeks to accomplish.Be prepared to be dazzled, enlightened and humbled by the beauty that is created among the bushes and trees on your walk through these charming gardens.

May you have a restful, special and Merry Christmas.Julie Joyce-Rehbock MarathonMore decorations neededJust wondering. Why does the city of Marathon not have any Christmas lights or holiday decorations up this year? I saw a few faded Seasons Greetings flags up at the north end of town. Must have been leftovers. Pretty sad.Anita Gassner Marathon Editors note: The city has decorated the Marathon Community Park for the holidays.Animals mourn, tooThe pod of pilot whales that stranded in the shallow waters of Everglades National Park captured the concerned attention of people not only in Florida but also across the nation. We worried about the whales, of course, but there was also a sense of mystery and wonder driving our attention: Why wouldnt the whales that were still healthy enough leave their beached pod mates and return to safety in open waters? As reported, some scientists believe these magnificent and smart creatures may have social ties so deep and enduring that survivors simply refuse to abandon their dead or dying companions. Is that plausible?As an anthropologist fascinated by the nature of animal emotion, I have spent two years working to discover whether claims about animals who grieve for their dying or dead family and friends are based on good science or instead in anthropomorphic projections, the kind where we force onto other animals reflections of our own behaviors.My conclusion is that yes, a wide variety of animals do mourn their loved ones or companions, to surprising degrees. In my book How Animals Grieve, I recount instances of grief made manifest in the wild by mother dolphins, chimpanzees and giraffes who mourned the loss of their newborn or young infants, and elephant females who became distressed over a dying, then dead, matriarch even when that female wasnt of their own close-knit family unit.What ties together these disparate cases is that the survivors normal mood or routine is significantly and visibly altered in some cases for a prolonged period. Not every response to death by an animal meets this criterion. After all, wild animals often refuse to show weakness, including emotional weakness the individuals who too often end up in a predators jaws.But surely the Everglades pilot whales do meet the key requirement: They altered their routines in the most acute way, to the extent of putting their own lives at risk.The breadth of our grief, and the elaborate social rituals associated with it, is ours alone. But just as is true with our language and our technology, our violence and our compassion, our grief is built upon an evolutionary substrate. If we look hard and long at our fellow animals, we see it plainly: In our most raw, elemental mourning, we arent alone.Barbara King Anthropology professor College of William and Mary Williamsburg, Va.Bill doesnt go far enough to address rising debtIn a rare moment of bipartisanship, the U.S. House of Representatives last week agreed on a budget accord that averts another government shutdown. The Senate should set aside its own bitter differences and do the same if it wants to avoid another embarrassing episode of Dysfunction on the Potomac. In most years, the budget agreement would be no big deal. The House merely agreed on a plan to pay the governments bills. But this is not most years. In a Congress whose members seemingly cant agree on the time of day, this represents a major accomplishment. By any accounting, the House-passed bill is a modest plan. It would eliminate about 61 percent of the senseless sequestration cuts in domestic programs such as education and transportation that were on schedule to deepen next month, adding $31.5 billion over the next two years. Spending would rise to $1.012 trillion from the $967 billion foreseen this year.To compensate for the $45 billion increase, consumers would pay as much as $5 extra in security fees per airline ticket, plus it slows federal spending in areas involving pensions for federal employees, civilian and military.Its not much, but in this season of counting blessings, well count it as a win, if the Senate can agree without making major changes that would rile members of the House. But voters should be clear on what this package is not: Its not a thoughtful spending and revenue bill that that controls the long-term causes of rising federal debt like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Its not a plan to increase revenue by closing loopholes to bring the budget into balance. Its not a plan to invest in the future by improving our infrastructure or education. Its a (probably temporary) cease-fire in the budget wars. Plus, in a particularly mean-spirited gesture, the House delivered a lump of coal to 1.3 million people by failing to extend their jobless benefits, which expire on Jan. 1. Even so, the most shrill voices on the right condemned the deal because of the spending increase. That prompted Speaker John Boehner to denounce the critics, which he should have done years ago. Rightwing critics are not supporting conservative policy, Mr. Boehner said theyre just trying to raise money for their own extreme agenda. Mr. Boehners sudden turn against the far right may be the best thing to come out of the bipartisan budget plan. This sensible behavior in the House may not last long, but its encouraging to see, even if only for awhile.

Schools looking at facilitiesContinuing a years-long discussion about decentralizing the Monroe County School District administration from Key West, the School Board on Dec. 10 got a first look at a long-term facilities plan analysis from consultant Fran Pickett. Pickett, a former Brevard County School Board member, works as a facilities planning consultant for school systems. Her hour-long presentation at Coral Shores High School focused on ancillary facilities not used for instructional purposes. The vast majority of ancillary space maintenance buildings, the administrative office and vacant buildings is in Key West. Theyre the A.J. Henriquez Administrative Building on Trumbo Road, part of Glynn Archer Elementary School, the Ruth Hargrove Building, the old May Sands School and the Reynolds School. This is the beginning of an ongoing evaluation were doing, Superintendent Mark Porter told the board, asking for good conversation about our look ahead and what we might need.The districts Informational Technology Department has already moved from downtown Key West and is now housed at the new Horace OBryant Middle School.The timing of the facilities study is based on the June 30 deadline for the districts five-year educational plant survey, a capital analysis submitted twice a decade to the Florida Department of Education for oversight purposes.Pickett asked board members to consider who needs to be close to whom, prompting board member Ed Davidson, a proponent of spreading out administrators, to add, Right now the only people that can work for the district are who live in Key West or close to it. He said that prevents the district from tapping a vast talent pool outside Key West. The last time decentralization came up was under former Superintendent Jesus Jara, Porters predecessor. Jara went so far as to work out of an office in Marathon High School twice a week.In what she called an out-of-the-box solution, Pickett threw out a scenario that would rebuild Gerald Adams Elementary on Stock Island. Then you could carve out part of it to make it district administration, constructing a space at Gerald Adams to replace the Trumbo building.If youre going to spend money on a building and youd rather it be a school, she said, what if when you do that school you also provide for ancillary?By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSCharter review board possibleA five-member panel of Marathon residents could be poring over the citys charter by early next year.At Thursdays City Council meeting, Council man Mark Senmartin brought forth a plan to establish a charter review committee aimed at tweaking the 15year-old document that oversees city government.There are a lot of things that are outdated and could use some freshening up, he said. Any corporation is going to go through their bylaws every couple of years so theres no reason we shouldnt, he added. Senmartin also asked that the committee be made up of council-appointed residents with legal, business or managerial backgrounds and that it sunset in 90 days. Fellow council members were generally supportive, but Mayor Dick Ramsay asked that a vote be postponed until January so the makeup of the committee could be worked out. Im certainly in favor ... of reviewing this charter. Im not exactly sure whether we have a direct plan in terms of how we organize this committee, he said.Last month, Council woman Ginger Snead proposed changes to the section of the charter dealing with enforcement of violations to it by council members. Ramsay has admitted that he has worked directly with city staffers on issues rather than go through city manager, a charter violation.Some of the stuff Ginger was talking about, Senmartin said. Definitions of what she was trying to penalize werent clear. Interaction with staff is different from interference with staff.As it stands, there are no provisions to punish such violations. Snead proposed amending the charter to make violations a misdemeanor enforceable by the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. Thursday, she resisted Senmartins idea of a council-appointed review board because she feels residents are likely unfamiliar with the document. She recommended City Attorney John Herin be the first to make proposed changes. To put together a group of five people that have no idea what our charter says could be a never-ending thing, she said. There could be things come forward that may not be in the best interest of the city. Herin noted that there is an entire section in the charter dealing with the transition from Monroe County government that could be removed. However, he said changes are ultimately a council decision.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

A furious fourth-quarter comeback fell four points short for the Marathon High School boys basketball team on Friday. The Dolphins rallied from 22 points down against Westwood Christian School, but were never able to bridge the gap in a 62-58 loss in Miami. We didnt quit, which was awesome. They fought back, but we dug ourselves too deep a hole, Marathon coach Kevin Freeman said. The Warriors were a state Class-2A Final Four team from a year ago and made the jump to Class-3A this season. Freeman said theyre a solid team that plays up tempo with a full-court press defense the entire game. We knew what to expect. We just couldnt hit shots in that first half, he said. When we did have open shots, we hurried them and didnt have a lot of our offensive rebounders down the court yet. They like to get up and run and we were playing against that too. The Dolphins fell behind early, 22-9, and trailed 38-24 at the half. Nelson Rojas (eight) and Shemar Fantroy (seven) scored all 15 Marathon points in the second quarter. Westwood increased the lead to 54-32 after three quarter, as the Dolphins committed nine turnovers in the quarter.

Kevin Coward is the Key West player at right.Conchs dominateDetermined to get rid of the bad taste of getting shut out by Doral Academy two days before, the Key West High boys soccer team came out Friday afternoon and solidly established itself as the second-best team in Division 16-3A. The Conchs defeated Norland, 8-0, before a small crowd at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium that was swelled slightly by a band of rooters that was the Conch girls team. Key West scored two early goals one by freshman Brian Coward and one by Roberto Remercy but couldnt score again the rest of the first half against keeper Jordan Owens and the defensive-minded Vikings, who loaded the 18-yard box. Earlier in the season, the Conchs defeated Norland, 80, in Miami. I didnt play in that game because I had a concussion, Owens said after making six first-half saves. I usually play forward, but we need a goalie. In the second half, however, Owens succumbed to a barrage of Conch shots.Senior Justin Mock made it 3-0 when he headed a corner kick from Spencer Hamilton just inside the right post.That was followed by two penalty kicks because of Norland hand balls. Senior Simon Dayer nailed the first one and sophomore Alex Cabrera drove the second one past a diving Owens. That made it 5-0, and the only question left was whether the Conchs could make it 8-0 and win by the mercy rule. The barrage continued, with Mock even trying a bicycle kick. Owens made a sparkling save against Danny Kearny but, with 13 minutes left, Dayer scored from the right side to make it 6-0. Kinsen Michel then replaced Owens in goal. Rolling in a rebound, Dayer scored again for a hat trick and a 7-0 lead. Finally, the Conchs ended the game with two minutes left when junior Bobur Ilkhomov scored on a header. The Conchs, who are off until January, improved to 73-2 overall and 5-2-1 in the district under new coach Marc Pierre, who, for this game, wore shorts and looked like the player he once was.Girls streak endsThe Key West High girls soccer team had its six-game winning streak snapped Saturday when it lost to Gulliver Prep, 3-0, in Miami. The 12-5 Conchs are off until Jan. 3 and 4, when they play at the Westminster Academy tournament.The goals keep coming against Miami squadBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCERConchs fall to Keys GateHaving defeated Keys Gate Charter by 34 points nine days earlier, the Key West High girls basketball team traveled to Homestead on Saturday expecting another rout. It didnt happen. The Conchs lost the District 164A rematch, 55-44. They thought it would be easy, coach Shonta McLeod said of her team, which dropped to 4-7 overall and 35 in the district. Leading scorer Tanisha Multy had only 11 points and saw her average drop to 23.0. She wasnt feeling well on the bus coming up, McLeod said. Nicole Konhaeuser Lopez led the Conchs with 13 points, and Brooke Marsden had 10. McLeod said the officiating was a factor They called more fouls on us. Youre having to play against seven people. In the first game the teams played, Key West had the socalled home cooking, taking 53 foul shots to Keys Gates three. After Saturday nights game, the Conchs were in shock, McLeod said, but I told them its over and done with. Key West will play Palmer Trinity at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Bobby Menendez Gym.Wrestling woes Missing five starters, including four state qualifiers from last season, the Key West High School wrestling team finished 19th in last weekends 32-team Slam Fest at Miami Beach Senior High. The Conchs did not have anyone in the top six in any of the weight classes. This is the first time since Ive been coach that we havent had a wrestler place at an individual tournament and only the second time in school history, said coach Chaz Jimenez. Jeromy Homerston (106 pounds) and John Piraino (160) went 3-2, and Nick Piraino (106), Joseph Casasola (120) and Tyler Jones (138) finished 2-2.Wrestlers finish 19th in Slam FestBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST HIGH SCHOOLDolphins just points away from comebackWin over Westwood out of reachBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BOYS HOOPSWind not slowing down snapper bite In between windy days, the reef bite remains very good, with plenty of yellowtail and mutton snapper plus a nice influx of grouper. The most consistent yellowtail action for flag-size fish is in 80 to 100 feet of water. If the big ones arent cooperating, move to the 35to 50-foot depths where the 14to 17-inch fish are thick. There are also good numbers of sailfish prowling about on the reef. Live ballyhoo still produces the best action for the sailfish. However, anglers fishing off the reef edge in 120 to 150 feet report success with pilchards and goggle eyes. Ever-increasing numbers of king mackerel are showing up in these same depths, with most fish in the 10to 15-pound range. A fair amount of dolphin came through last week and, if were lucky, theyll hang around for a while. Look for birds working the surface as it may not be merely bonita, especially if the winds are from a southerly direction.On the patch reefs, the snapper bite continues to be very good. And, the mackerel population Spanish, cero and even the occasional king is growing on a daily basis.Mangrove fishing is excellent at the bridges and bayside waters, with plenty of fish in the 2to 3-pound class. And, the Spanish mackerel bite is unhinged back there. Time to load the smoker!The weeks bestThe crews on the Sea Squared and the Klimax have been bouncing around from the reef to the bridges to the gulf and bay, depending on the wind on any given day. Our anglers caught loads of snappers and Spanish mackerel plus the occasional grouper. We also did some shark fishing, with our anglers hooking and releasing very large bull sharks. Marathons Capt. Jeff Knapp reports good action on mangroves and muttons on the out-going current at the Seven Mile Bridge. And, he put his anglers on a slot-size black drum in Sisters Creek a very nice surprise!

The Dolphins lost to Naples-area Evangelical Christian School, 4-0, before dropping a close 3-2 match on Saturday against Naples Community School. It was a fantastic trip, coach Cindy Durkin said. We definitely got to play some quality teams we dont normally get to play. The Dolphins traveled to Naples the day of Fridays game against Evangelical, and Durkin said the long trip slowed the team down a bit. We came off the bus and in the first half we were a little lethargic. It was not the best soccer we played. The second half we made some adjustments and played better, she said. The Dolphins trailed 3-0 at the half, but tightened their defense up and generated scoring opportunities in the second half. They surrendered only one goal after the break but were unable to capitalize on goal chances. On Saturday, the Dolphins faced off against a Naples Community School team that defeated Evangelical earlier this season.

Lets take a look at some simple steps that will allow your pets to join in the holiday fun this year, while avoiding any trips to the animal emergency room.Place your Christmas tree in a corner, blocked off from your pets wanting eyes. If this doesnt keep your dog or cat from attempting to jump onto the tree, you can place aluminum foil, a plastic drink bottle filled with knick knacks, or anything else that creates noise on the trees bottom limbs to warn you of an impending tree disaster.Tinsel can add a nice sparkling touch to the tree, but make sure you hang it up out of your pets reach. Ingesting the tinsel can potentially block their intestines, which is generally only remedied through surgical means.Do not put lights on the trees lower branches. Not only can your pet get tangled up in the lights, they are a burning hazard. Additionally, your dog or cat may inadvertently get shocked by biting through the wire.Ornaments need to be kept out of reach, too. In addition to being a choking and intestinal blockage hazard, shards from broken ornaments may injure paws, mouths, or other parts of your pets body.For those buying a live Christmas trees, keep the area free and clear of pine needles. While they may not seem dangerous, the needles can puncture your pets intestines if ingested.Did you know holly, mistletoe and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs or cats? If you normally use these plants to decorate your home, they should be kept in an area your pet cannot reach.Edible tree decorations whether they be ornaments, or cranberry or popcorn strings are like time bombs waiting to happen. These goodies are just too enticing and your pet will surely tug at them, knocking down your wonderfully decorated spruce.Burning candles should be placed on high shelves or mantels, out of your pets way theres no telling where a wagging tail may end up. Homes with fireplaces should use screens to avoid accidental burns.To prevent accidental electrocutions, any exposed indoor or outdoor wires should be taped to the wall or the sides of the house.When wrapping gifts, be sure to keep your pet away. Wrapping paper, string, plastic, or cloth could cause intestinal blockages. Scissors are another hazard, and they should be kept off floors or low tables.We dont want to ruin all your holiday decorating fun. By all means, go crazy sprucing up your home and wrapping presents. But make sure you do in a way that is safe for your pet this holiday season.These tips are from www .petmd.com.Following tips can help avoid lots of troubleOUR PETS The dog on the left found a lot of trouble around the Christmas tree, and his two buddies seem to know somethings not right.LIVING BRIEFSSeniors softball games are openSoftball games for seniors (men 50 and older, women 40 and older) have begun at the Marathon Community Park.The co-ed games start at 2 p.m. Sundays through Decem ber, then go to 10 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through March.

Coalition Director Rev. Stephen E. Braddock will lead the 3 p.m. Friday service at the coalitions vault in the Key West Cemetery. Not all were homeless by federal definition, but the service honors the dead whose bodies were released into the custody of Monroe County as so-called paupers. The countys Social Services Division provides cremation and burial for the indigent, those who die alone on the streets or whose next of kin cannot afford the cost.Deceased veterans will receive a tribute from the U.S. Navy honor guard. Lt. Ethan Everts, command chaplain for Naval Air Station Key West, will deliver the eulogy.The public is invited. Enter the cemetery through the main gate by the sextons house. In the event of rain, the service will be held at the First Congregational Church at 527 William St.In Key Largo, a memorial service is planned for noon until 1 p.m. Friday at Settlers Park, mile marker 92 oceanside.

Call 743-6412 for details.Three planned throughout KeysCheesecake by definition is rich and decadent. So we knew that if we were going to make a special cheesecake just for Christmas, it would need to be even richer and even more decadent.So we started with an amazingly indulgent cheesecake base a mere 32 ounces of cream cheese blended with a cup of sugar and six eggs then spiked it not only with vanilla bean, but also chopped bittersweet chocolate. But this is not standard chocolate cheesecake. In our recipe, the chocolate remains a distinct, deliciously toothsome confetti strewn throughout the cheesecake.For that seasonal red and green we have come to expect from our Christmas treats, we top the finished cake with warm red currant jam and chopped pistachios. What youll need for red currant and chocolate cheesecake:Six ounces chocolate wafer cookies (two-thirds of a 9-ounce package).Two tablespoons brown sugar.Four tablespoons (half a stick) butter, melted.Four 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature.One cup granulated sugar.Six eggs.One vanilla bean or 2 tablespoons vanilla extract.Six ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate.Half a cup red currant jelly.Quarter of a cup chop ped pistachios. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a deep 10-inch cake pan with baking spray, then line the bottom with kitchen parchment. In a food processor, combine the chocolate wafer cookies and brown sugar. Pulse until finely ground. Drizzle in the butter and pulse to combine. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pare and press evenly over the bottom. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside. Lower the oven temperature to 300. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, use an electric mixer on medium-low to beat the cream cheese until smooth. Take care to not beat in any extra air, but to scrape down the bowl thoroughly to avoid any lumps. Add the granulated sugar and beat again, scraping the bowl thoroughly. Add the eggs one at a time, again incorporating gently, but thoroughly scraping the bowl.Scrape in the seeds from the vanilla bean or add the vanilla extract. Stir in the bittersweet chocolate. Pour the batter into the prepared pan over the crust. Tap the pan gently on the counter to eliminate any air bubbles. Place the pan into a larger roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan, taking care not to get any into the cheesecake, to come halfway up the sides of the cake.Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until just barely jiggly at the center. Turn off the oven and prop the door open with a spoon. Allow to cool for two hours. Remove the pan from the oven and refrigerate until completely cold, at least four hours. When ready to unmold the cheesecake, run a paring knife around the edge. Dip just the bottom of the pan in hot water for one minute to loosen the crust. Place a large plate over the top of the pan, then flip the pan over so that the cheesecake is upside down. The cake should release onto the plate.Remove the parchment from the crust and place a serving platter over it. Flip the cake a second time to end with the cheesecake right side up.Microwave the red currant jelly for one minute and stir until smooth. Spread evenly over the top of the cheesecake. Garnish the edges with chopped pistachios.Start to finish: Seven and a half hours (30 minutes active).Servings: Sixteen.Nutrition information per serving: 420 calories; 280 calories from fat (67 percent of total calories); 31 g fat (18 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 140 mg cholesterol; 33 g carbohydrate; 1 g fiber; 25 g sugar; 9 g protein; 270 mg sodium.
