All we care about is the animals. We put them above our own well-being, Theater of the Sea curator Beverly Osborne said. We cant afford to find out the hard way that this was a very bad idea, Osborne said. Our veterinarian has a lot of concerns.One staff member parked her car in the planned construction route along the Old Highway, off mile marker 84.7, to safeguard an underground culvert and channel that carries ocean water into dolphin ponds at Theater of the Sea.Several other Theater of Sea staff members surrounded the car and refused to move as contractors set up drilling equipment yards away.That water is our lifeline into a land-locked facility. Its crucial, veterinary technician Melissa Jaroneski said. If [the channel] collapses and our ponds become stagnant, or the water gets contaminated by fungus or bacteria, our animals could become ill or worse. Monroe County Sheriffs Office patrol cars responded to a 10 a.m. call from the sewer contractor. We stood by to make sure it did not turn into anything more serious, or that any laws were broken, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. After consultation with village of Islamorada wastewater officials, the contractors temporarily halted work.

Still, some are repeat criticisms from the previous year. Were moving in the right direction, Board of Trustees member Brian Schmitt said Friday. The audit covers the 2013 calendar year; a financial audit tied to the fiscal year is separate and usually comes out the third week of March.Auditors recommended, for the second year in a row, that the small Stock Islandbased college improve its handling of bank reconciliations. According to the audit report, transactions from July 2012 until May 2013 were not recorded until Aug. 12, 2013.In his management response, college President Jonathan Gueverra notes that the college has trained its employees in best practices and said the problem is fixed.Schmitt said Vice President of Finance Jean Mauk, hired in 2011, had a backlog of things she had to deal with coming in and now that shes caught up, Im confident in how our finances are being managed.Auditors also found problems with the colleges bookkeeping as it relates to the per-credit-hour fee of $25 fee for distance-learning courses, which in some cases may have exceeded the cost of the services provided.The operational findings centered on controls over how marine engineering and diving classes use the six boats either owned or loaned to the college, as well as the need to tighten up computer security.The college owns two boats and uses four others on loan. Internal policy requires professors to fill out a detailed request-for-use form that lists the class, names of people on the vessel and purpose.President says several fixes put in placeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNTY COLLEGEPlanning board OKs recycle siteIts far from a done deal, but the Marathon Planning Commission on Monday narrowly supported Discount Rock and Sand owner Eddie Lopezs long-planned construction and demolitiondebris recycling and transfer station on Aviation Boulevard.Specifically, the advisory board ruled that city Planning Director George Garrett was wrong in June to deny Lopez permits for the transfer station. The vote was 3-2, with commissioners Dan Zieg and Lott Pansky dissenting. Commissioners Jim Tashjian, Lynn Landry and Ralph Lucignano voted to overturn Garretts decision. The meeting room at the firehouse at Florida Keys Marathon Airport was filled well beyond capacity for the decision. The session was delayed nearly 25 minutes as city staff signed members of the public in and emptied the room to its 50-person limit.

The liveaboards were up in arms because of what they perceived to be harassing enforcement in the harbor that began Thanksgiving and lasted more than a week. That resulted in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission agreeing to the meeting, and saying the agency was not, in fact, harassing the boaters. Capt. David Dipre fielded the questions and concerns from more than a dozen residents.Later in the evening, Dipre went through a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the finer points of The Florida Boaters Guide, a handbook detailing boating laws andThey call agency heavy-handed but captain disagreesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYSSee FKCC, 2ASee Harbor, 2ASee Planning, 3ASee Protest, 2ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com
responsibilities.Much of the concern was what Boot Key resident Cory Young dubbed heavy-handed officers doling out warnings and citations for minor offenses. Young spoke about late-night spotlighting in boaters windows and the late-night boarding of vessels to check registrations and for violations.A little bit of tact on the part of the officers in questions and we might not be here tonight, he said. Several of these citations were warranted. Other times the citations have been odd, if not plain bizarre.Why is it FWC shows up unannounced and doing things that are completely irregular? It scared everybody in this room, said one resident. Dipre said the FWC officers presence was not an enforcement push. FWC works to find where the activity is; where the boaters are; where the fisheries are; where criminal violations might be. Were police just like the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and we have a responsibility to uphold the law, he said. Dipre said that this time of year, when temperatures drop and the open water is choppier, officers move into harbors up and down the Keys. Dipre added that enforcement in Boot Key Harbor now pales in comparison to the past, when Boot Key had more of a reputation for criminal activity. We dont get a lot of activity in this harbor anymore. Its not like it was 10 or 15 years ago, he said, referencing when there were no mooring balls and no city marina. Dipre told an older resident who complained about late-night enforcement that officers would tone down activity after 9 p.m. Theres not ever a circumstance that comes up where you should be treated with disrespect, Dipre said. I dont have to demean you, especially for boating safety infractions.

Wildlife officials planned Friday to do a walking survey just west of Miami to see how many of the big snakes might be living there. Florida is already grappling with Burmese pythons in the Everglades, where they are being blamed for sharp decreases in many native species. Rock pythons can grow to about 16 feet and are the largest snakes in Africa. Biologists say they are among the worlds most aggressive snakes and will eat almost anything they can swallow. The survey Friday is part of a state effort to eradicate the snakes from South Florida.

Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWTheater of the Sea veterinary technician Melissa Jaroneski shows the water system that feeds sea water into marinemammal ponds at the Windley Key attraction. Parks staff staged a protest Friday over fears that sewer-system drilling could damage or destroy the waterway.plans, Islamorada wastewater program manager Greg Tindle said. Thats supposed to happen Monday, so well circle back to see if they have any concerns or requests.Primary contractor Reynolds Water Islamorada designed the Old Highway system to run six to nine feet below the Theater of the Sea culvert, Tindle said. Reynolds stands behind the plan and is ready to do the work so it will not negatively affect any of the animals, Tindle said, noting that the culvert that concerns the attraction managers is on the road right of way. This is not on their property or right next to the ponds, Tindle said. Theater of the Sea houses eight dolphins, including a newborn calf; five sea lions; 10 sea turtles; and hundreds of fish and reptiles, assistant curator Pam Hughes said. The dispute centers on the culvert system, reportedly built in 1941, that carries thousands of gallons of ocean water into the marine park. Part of the channel runs along U.S. 1 between Theater of the Sea and the Pelican Cove Resort. Islamoradas wastewater plans call for drilling that would allow sewer lines to be placed beneath the parks water system. Osborne said Theater of the Sea managers became aware of planned work several weeks ago and asked for a detailed set of engineering plans so they could be checked by park engineering and medical consultants, along with state environmental. They brought the plans to us yesterday, then showed up to start work today without honoring our request, Osborne said Friday. They keep likening this to drilling under a bridge, but this is not like that, she said. We do not understand what the rush is when it could put our animals at risk.Sewer plans to be reviewedFrom Protest, 1A Auditors found that policy was widely ignored by marine faculty two out of the four resigned this year and Gueverra agreed, noting the turnover. All full-time and parttime marine engineering faculty will be required to acknowledge, in writing, that they have read and understand these policies and procedures, Gueverra said. In the IT department, auditors found that some employees had access to financial and humanresource databases unnecessary to their assigned job responsibilities. A separate finding indicated the college hasnt performed an IT risk assessment since 2002.President says policies tightenFrom FKCC, 1A Disrespect not an optionFrom Harbor, 1ASchmitt asked interest in city manager jobCount Realtor Bruce Schmitt out of the running to be Marathons city manager should City Manager Roger Hernstadt leave for the same position in Marco Island.Schmitt made that clear in an e-mail conversation involving him, city Planning Commission Chairman James Tashjian and the entire City Council. In a Dec. 11 e-mail, Tashjian, from a private email address, asked about Schmitts interest in the job. Bruce, If Roger is offered and takes the Marco Island job, would you be interested in applying for the Marathon city manager position? Tashjian wrote.The following day, Schmitt wrote back, James, where is this coming from? To which Tashjian responded, I was just curious.Schmitt then wrote, Applications go through you? Tashjian responded with a simple No. Hernstadt is scheduled to interview for the Marco Island job next month. Schmitt the target of a murder-for-hire plot last December has been among the most vocal critics of city government. Specifically, he claims that another planning commissioner, Ralph Lucignano, is responsible for keeping a law in place stopping package liquor stores from opening within 1,500 feet of one another.Lucignano owns the Marathon Deli & Liquor shop on Overseas Highway near mile marker 50, nearly next door to a Walgreens Schmitt developed that is allowed to sell beer and wine only. Schmitts Dec. 14 email to the council following his e-mail conversation with Tashjian points out what Schmitt feels are Tashjians connections to Lucignano.You just need to get better people in those positions, Schmitt wrote, referring to city committee appointments.Schmitt told the Keynoter he was caught off guard by Tashjians inquiry.It was so far off the wall that I dont even know where its coming from, Schmitt said. Why would I apply when there is no possibility I would ever be hired?Tashjian said on Friday that he was merely curious about Schmitts interest. It was a personal e-mail between me and him. I dont even think it should have been made public, he said.Tashjian added that he sees nothing wrong with asking the question, despite his position on the Planning Commission.Ive asked a few people if they would be interested in putting in for it. I didnt mean anything by it, he said.Mayor Dick Ramsay called the e-mail exchange bizarre, but said Tashjian would likely not face any ramifications. No, I dont think anything is going to happen, he said.Tashjian was appointed to the Planning Commission by Councilwoman Ginger Snead.

KEY COLONY BEACH Peoples Choice Award Marathons Best Restaurant! 20YEARS KEY COLONY INNRESTAURANT & LOUNGE Karl Bursa, 180 people signed in. Of those, 166 supported Lopez. Garretts denials were for a stormwater component at the recycling center, as well as an open-air barn-type structure, because he determined the overall use of the property to be inconsistent with city code. That was the crux of Mondays hearing: Whether Garrett correctly interpreted the code. For months, Lopez, a 27year Marathon resident, has been heavily lobbying for the proposed business in newspapers ads and hired landuse consultant Sandy Walters to represent him before the Planning Commission. The arguments Monday were technical, citing specific sections of city code. But they boiled down to Walters argument that a land-use table in the code says recycling facilities are as of right uses in industrial zoned areas. The proposed Aviation Boulevard site is zoned industrial. Its not a prohibited use in the city of Marathon, Walters said. However, Garrett claims a separate section of the code, specifically prohibiting junk, salvage or recycled metal yards, takes precedence. Since there is no clear definition of recycling in the code, Garrett argued that description most closely applies to Lopezs project. We felt the term junk salvage or recycled metal yard, at least as one option, was something we should consider. Notably, one of the prohibited uses under that use is construction and demolition debris, he said. Walters disagreed, hammering home the point that the business would be a recycling center and not a junkyard. She went on to claim that the project has gone from a planning process to a political process since conceived in 2008. We met with Mr. Garrett in 2008 and he repeatedly agreed that a construction and debris facility is an asof-right use in an industrial zoning, she said. I feel its disingenuous at best for him to now claim his comments on our site plan were focused on a prohibited use.In January 2011, Lopez was issued a state Depart ment of Environmental Protection permit for the transfer station.DEP has a tremendous level of detail required in the permit, she said, noting fully enforceable conditions.Roughly a dozen residents offered public comment on the project, for and against, despite Assistant City Attorney Michael Marshall stating numerous times that how the commission feels about the project was irrelevant to the proceeding.Susan Anisko lives on Stirrup Key Woods Road, which runs parallel to the back side of the Discount Rock and Sand lot. She said workers are there all hours of the day and night.I take exception to the good neighbor aspect of your presentation, she said. I can tell you there is no Monday to Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is seven days a week, 6:15 in the morning, holidays included, and there is no one to enforce. Marv Schindler is president of the nearby gated Stirrup Key homeowners association. He said that group of 66 homeowners is adamantly opposed to the project.The noise mentioned we can hear that, as well. It sounds like thunder when these large containers are banged around, he said, referring to Discount Rock and Sand dumpsters. Developer Roger Masters, whos building the Courtyard by Marriott near mile marker 48, spoke in favor of the project. I am very much for our debris that will come off our site being recycled. I dont think there is one person in this room that would deny recycling is the right thing to do, he said. Lopez spoke briefly and said hes prepared to spend $100,000 on a 12-foot-high wall buffering the property from adjacent homeowners. Garrett said the Planning Commission decision could be appealed, either by the council or a citizen. There is a 30-day window to do so, he said.Permit denial overturnedFrom Planning, 1A Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThis is the Aviation Boulevard site in Marathon where Discount Rock and Sand owner Eddie Lopez proposes to open a construction and demolition-debris transfer station.
Manatee deaths top 800 in 2013For the first time since records began being kept in Florida in the 1970s, the number of manatee deaths in a single year has topped 800, with two weeks remaining to the end of 2013. Numbers released by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg this week showed the number of known dead manatees at 803 as of Dec. 13. Thats about 16 percent of the states estimated population of 5,000 manatees. And 173 of the dead were breeding-age female manatees, Martine DeWit of the institutes Marine Mammal Pathology Laboratory said Thursday. Although its too soon to say how this will affect the future of the species, she said, It must have an impact to lose these important breeding females.For comparison, last years total number of manatee deaths was 392, which is more in line with whats normal.The old record for manatee deaths, set in 2010, resulted from a lengthy cold snap that killed hundreds of manatees, pushing that years number of deaths to 766. That cold snap mostly affected younger manatees that had not yet attained breeding age, DeWit said. This years record dieoff was driven by two causes one of which remains a mystery. First, a massive bloom of red-tide algae along the states southwestern coast caused 276 deaths early in the year. Red tide has been around for centuries and has killed manatees before. But this year was the worst red tide die-off ever recorded. Meanwhile, a mysterious ailment has been killing manatees in the Indian River Lagoon. All told, 117 manatees have died in the Indian River Lagoon since July 2012, including one that died this month, according to Kevin Baxter, spokesman for the state marine science laboratory. No one can explain the die-off. Scientists are also baffled as to why scores of dolphins and pelicans died in the lagoon, too, or whether there is any connection among the unusual events.The deaths of the three species may be a result of pollution-fueled algae blooms that wiped out some 47,000 acres of seagrass in the 156-milelong lagoon that stretches along the states Atlantic Coast.By CRAIG PITTMANTampa Bay TimesFLORIDA WILDLIFEShelter site pinpointedThe Key West City Commission on Wednesday tentatively picked the former state Department of Juvenile Justice building on Stock Island as the site for a new round-the-clock homeless shelter to replace the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, which is on basically the same piece of property.During the workshop, commissioners acknowledged several hurdles to replacing KOTS, including the need for buy-in from Monroe County (the property owner) and the state (the building owner). Sheriff Rick Ramsays goal is to rid his agencys Stock Island headquarters of KOTS, which is at the back of the College Road parcel. The former state building is on the same property. The commission also stressed to city staff the need to refine plans prior to a joint meeting with the County Commission, planned for sometime in late February, to discuss homelessness and related issues. City Commissioner Teri Johnston, pointing out a lawsuit settlement with the KOTS-adjacent Sunset Marina Condominium Homeowners Association that requires the 150-bed facility be moved, alluded to mandates for homeless service provided by whats called the Pottinger case. The settlement of a 1998 federal lawsuit against the city of Miami dictates that police cant arrest homeless people simply for sleeping, bathing, dressing and the like in public unless they are offered shelter and refuse. Not one of you understands the repercussions if we dont have an overnight shelter, Johnston told her colleagues. Key West police would basically be handcuffed.We would basically have every homeless person out on the streets every evening, she said. I dont think anybody understands what would happen if we didnt have KOTS. The location is going to be controversial but the fact is weve got to have a location people can get to and people can use.Commissioners Billy Wardlow and Mark Rossi favor the Department of Juvenile Justice building and called for support from Monroe County. It should be on the sheriffs property, Wardlow said. Itll keep [the homeless] on their toes, youve got the sheriff looking at you. I believe that is the best location for it and it wouldnt cost anything to build. This is not just a Key West problem, Rossi said. Its a county problem. Thats where it starts.He added, The County Commission is going to decide what goes on out there. If we are in tandem with the County Commis sion, then the sheriff will have to come in line.Ramsay said hed like the shelter totally off the property but that the Juvenile Justice building is preferable to the current configuration. I still dont think itd be an appropriate place, though, Ramsay told the Keynoter adding that he has unsuccessfully attempted to lease the building before for more jail space.The new shelter, like KOTS, would offer bunks, showers and restroom facilities, plus some medical care, food service, case management and substance abuse/ mental health referrals all on site. City Commissioner Tony Yaniz said thats too much and wants just the bare basics roof, beds, bathrooms and showers.But its early so initial plans could see changeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday, December 21, 2013 Steamed Peel-n-Eat Shrimp Blue Crab Balls & Mango Dipping Sauce Our Famous New England Style Clam Chowder Fresh Florida Keys Lobster Bisque California Lettuce & Spring Mix Salad with Assorted Dressings Herb Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy Homemade Herb Stuffing Carved Top Round of Beef Au JusSmoked Spiral Ham with a Honey Pineapple GlazeSlow Roasted Mojo Marinated Cuban Pork Grilled Local Mahi-Mahi with Lemon Caper Cream Sauce Smoked Bacon & Shallot Macaroni & Cheese Redskin Mashed Potatoes Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole Fresh Baked Breads Fresh Homemade Bourbon Pecan Pie Fresh Homemade Sunset Key Lime PieJoin us on Christmas Day Dec. 25 for a fantastic feast oceanfront overlooking the Historic Seven Mile Bridge and enjoy a relaxing meal with friends and family.

City police arrested Franklin Cohens, 48, at 2510 Staples Ave. on Wednesday after he backed a State Attorneys Office-owned 2008 Ford Escape into a Kia owned by Ryan Darrah. It happened around 8:35 p.m. When police arrived, they found Cohens with bloodshot watery eyes, and his eyelids were droopy, Officer Alexander Rodriguez wrote in a report.Cohens refused to submit to a breath test, Rodriguez wrote.State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Cohens has been suspended pending further investigation. She said she asked Gov. Rick Scott to reassign the case to another jurisdiction because of a conflict of interest, and that likely will be the Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office.Defender pleadsAn assistant Monroe County public defender has pleaded guilty to reckless driving nearly three years after he was arrested for drunk driving in the Lower Keys.Matthew Matteliano, 36, was arrested on Dec. 18, 2010, after he drove his car into mangroves around mile marker 9 around 2:30 a.m. Vogel said that on Sept. 3, he pleaded guilty to reckless driving.He received 12 months of probation; was fined $500; must pay $543 in court costs, $240 to the Sheriffs Office for the investigation and $50 for the cost of prosecution; must attend both drunk-driving school and intermediate driver improvement school; must meet with a victim advocate panel comprising people victimized by DUIs; must perform 50 hours of community service; and cant drink alcohol during his probation.DUI charged after SUV strikes KiaCRIME FRONT COHENSKeynoter StaffKeys schools grade highIn a year that saw a record number of Florida high schools receive a coveted A rating from the state Department of Education, two of Monroe Countys three public high schools dropped a grade while the third had no change.Based on results released Wednesday, Key West High went from an A to B for the 2012-13 school year, as did Marathon Middle/High School. Coral Shores High in Tavernier maintained a B grade for the third year in a row.School grades are calculated on an 800-point scale considering factors such as student achievement on standardized tests and learning gains compared to the previous year.High school grades are perhaps the most valid and consistent part of the Florida accountability system, Monroe County School District Superintendent Mark Porter said. Yet a school grade never tells the whole story, regardless of whether it is an A, B, or C. The real value comes when you dig deeper into the disaggregated data to identify specific areas of success and areas that must be targeted for improvement.Graduation rates, and in particular graduation rates for at-risk students, continue to be an identifiable area that must improve, he said. This factor alone prevented Coral Shores High School and Key West High School from receiving an A grade.Overall, 240 Florida high schools, representing 48 percent of the 502 high schools statewide, received an A rating.MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSKeynoter Staff KIDS GIFTS LAND AT AIRPORT Employees of and visitors to the Marathon Jet Center and Marathon General Aviation at Florida Keys Marathon Airport threw a holiday party Dec. 14, with those attending bearing gifts for students in Stanley Switlik Elementary Schools Head Start program.

Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYDrive-through food stores and restaurants have been around for decades, but who knew a shoe store would become one? Well, not on purpose, anyway. This is the aftermath when a driver plowed a Buick through the front window of the Pix Shoe Store at 509 Duval St., Key West, on Dec. 23, 1955.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALMutual respect needed in harborLETTERS TO THE EDITORPrayers are for allI am Pastor Nick Vaughns spouse and I have a few comments regarding the recent story about the Marathon City Council reinstating prayer at its meetings.Reporter Ryan McCarthys article ended rather abruptly with this sentence: Vaughn told the council hes not interested in converting the audience to his religion. That statement, while true, does not give the clear gist of what Pastor Vaughn said concerning the issue. McCarthys article gave the councils one dissenting voter, Mark Senmartin, several sentences in which he was able to clearly state his point and concerns. I realize that space is often an issue in news stories, so allow me to give a brief summary of what Pastor Vaughn said in favor of prayer before council meetings.While Pastor Vaughn isnt interested in proselytizing potential converts or seeking an official endorsement of his particular faith, he is following what numerous public officials have done since the days of the founding fathers: Asking for Gods help, wisdom and guidance in the affairs of government. I believe Pastor Vaughn even read a quote from Benjamin Franklin relating to the subject and reminded the council that numerous public invocation prayers are given, from the presidential inauguration to opening prayers given at the U.S. House of representatives (which has a chaplain, by the way). God help us all, that is essentially all. Now to attend to the points Mr. Senmartin brought up because they are good points worth addressing. Mr. Senmartin that it will end up being the same group of people providing this invocation. That small group of people represents other groups of people in this small town, so naturally that is the likelihood. Rather than being a disadvantage, it is actually an accurate reflection of the population. Those potential prayer leaders, like Senmartin himself, represent the community at large. As for excluding others, I would imagine that any spiritual group that has some sort of organization and accreditation will be able to take its turn in saying this prayer, and the community will continue to be fairly represented. Remember, all we are talking about here is a brief prayer at the opening of the meeting asking for Gods help. Thats all. God help us. Meghan Vaughn MarathonAbove all else, bike safetyOverseas Highway is not only a major transportation artery, but it is the Main Street within our communities. Residents use the roadway each day to commute to work, shopping, and school, as well as for exercise and recreation. With the added construction activity, utility work, a booming tourism industry and a multitude of scenic highway cruisers who are unfamiliar with our roadway conditions, there is a high potential for vehicle/bicycle or vehicle/pedestrian conflicts. The state and Monroe County are working diligently to make the highway a safer place for everyone. We are adding bicycle lanes, pedestrian crosswalks, pedestrian signals and shareduse paths throughout the Florida Keys. We distribute bike helmets, bicycle safety information and informational videos to local schools and afterschool programs in an attempt to educate people about how to stay safe. Ultimately, the responsibility for staying safe and alive lies with all of us. Being right about who has the right of way doesnt matter if the incident ends in a fatality. Did you know that the rules of the road vary depending on whether you are on a shared-use path or in a bike lane? Please take a moment to learn a few valuable tips provided by the Florida Bicycle Association (floridabicycle.org), a cycling organization that has been instrumental in educating its members, the general public and legislators about their sport. Trish Smith County transportation planning managerEnsure Hernstadt staysAlthough I have been a Marathon resident only for one year, I have been spending winters in the Keys for almost 30 years so I consider myself an informed citizen. I was extremely disappointed to learn that Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt was recruited by a headhunter and has applied for the city managers position at Marco Island. From my position, it would be a major loss to the city if Roger resigned his position. Since he arrived, the city has made tremendous progress, including the beautification project for our residents and weekly visitors to enjoy. Mr. Hernstadt has also brought a business atmosphere to the city, which is a major step forward to the long-outdated bubba system of government. Lets hope the city leaders extend Mr. Hernstadts contract and put any chance of his leaving behind us. On another matter I see where our newly elected councilman, Mark Senmartin, voted against starting City Council meetings with a prayer. I supported Mark but am disappointed by his decision to vote against the motion, especially when his platform suggested he would be in favor of such a motion. Marks landslide victory puts him in a position to effect change, and being the only dissenting vote on this motion is not the way to begin his tenure. Mike Leonard Marathon Dublin, OhioSome liveaboards say theyre harassed, but with lifestyle comes responsibilityIt wasnt that long ago that Boot Key Harbor in Marathon was a very different place. Going back 15, 20 years, the home of liveaboard boaters was considered an outpost of lawlessness, from many boaters not using holding tanks for their sewage to outright fights often with weapons among the residents. It was an atmosphere in which many of the residents considered themselves modernday pirates not to be messed with. But through the hard work of government officials and many liveaboards themselves, Boot Key Harbor has come into its own. It started with what was then Monroe Countys Boot Key Harbor Committee (before Marathon incorporated) and continues with Marathons Near Shore Waters Advisory Committee, City of Marathon Marina staff and the residents. The marina is a great operation that welcomes cruisers along with liveaboards. It has bathroom and laundry facilities, and computers for marina users to use. The harbor itself now has hundreds of mooring balls to keep some semblance of order, which was lacking in the earlier on-the-hook community. With the improvements, Boot Key Harbor is now a true community, not the outcast stepchild. But some perceptions remain, specifically, that marine law-enforcement officers go overboard when it comes to enforcing maritime laws in the harbor. Its a complaint the boaters make every year or so following a sweep by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or the U.S. Coast Guard. The latest such complaints have festered since Thanksgiving, when those who use dinghies to get from land to their boats say they were unnecessarily stopped and boarded at nighttime. They say the stops appeared arbitrary and over the top. In a Wednesday meeting with FWC Capt. David Dipre at the marina, the latest complaints were aired and Dipre listened. But he also noted that when it comes to history, Boot Key Harbor and its residents are all better off now than in the past. We dont get a lot of activity in this harbor anymore. Its not like it was 10 or 15 years ago, he said. That said, we believe some of the boaters do feel harassed. But, like people living on land, they have to expect there are rules to live by. In most cases, liveaboards do abide by the rules. Dipre says the seemingly increased police presence every so often was triggered by those who dont. We do not subscribe to the theory that every boarding of a liveaboard is a violation of privacy, just like we dont believe every traffic stop is harassment. You speed, you get pulled over. You run your dinghy without lights on, you get pulled over. The allure of being a liveaboard comes with the caveat that your vessel does not have the same protection from unannounced inspections that a house does. But, we also agree with Dipre when he said that theres not ever a circumstance that comes up where you should be treated with disrespect. I dont have to demean you, especially for boating safety infractions. ID suspect claims setupThe lawyer for a Naples man arrested in Key West by the FBI last month for allegedly using dead peoples identification to cash federal income-tax refund checks has accused undercover agents of manufacturing crime.Because thats how confidential informants get paid money, Marc Seitles, a Miami-based lawyer representing 22-year-old Victor Martinez Pantoja.Pantoja pleaded not guilty. He was arraigned on Tuesday.According to an FBI arrest affidavit, Pantoja met two undercover agents at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Key West on Nov. 21 to negotiate a deal to cash fraudulently obtained refund checks. The meeting was recorded by video and audio. Special Agent John Gill said in his report that Pantoja gave the undercover agents three Treasury checks totaling $27,263. He also gave the agents a copy of a counterfeit drivers license and Social Security card for each corresponding refund check so they could be cashed, according to the arrest report. He told the agents that he and an unknown co-conspirator had access to hundreds of federal income-tax refund checks that were obtained by using the identities of people who had died during the previous tax year. These identities were obtained over the Internet, Pantoja allegedly told the agents. Pantoja reportedly told the undercover agents that he made the drivers licenses and Social Security cards on his computer using the fraudulently obtained ID information. He said he would make more for the agents, according to Gills report. The undercover agents agreed to cash the refund checks in three business days and return $20,500 to Pantoja. Pantoja forged signatures on the backs of the checks, according to the arrest report. He also allegedly agreed to bring more checks, totaling $100,00, to another meeting scheduled for Nov. 26 in Davie. During that meeting, the undercover agents paid Pantoja the $20,500 they promised him at the Key West meeting.Pantoja then gave the agents six more refund checks for a total of $35,547. Federal agents arrested him later that day. He posted a $75,000 bond on Dec. 6.It is unclear why the original meeting took place in Key West. Pantojas lawyer, Seitles, said his client has never lived in Key West and has no connections there. He is not from Key West and was lured there by a confidential informant working for the FBI, Seitles said.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comCRIME FRONTContract talks likely at impasseAcknowledging fundamental disagreement, the most recent negotiation between the United Teachers of Monroe and the Monroe County School District over a contract has foreshadowed a likely labor impasse.When the two sides cant agree on a contract, its sent to mediation, then to a magistrate for a binding decision, according to Florida law.UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman maintains that a proposed contract provision that would allow the School Board to invoke unpaid furlough days for teachers and other staff has expired. Bob Norton, the districts chief negotiator, says it hasnt. In a Wednesday meeting in Key West the first since negotiations broke down Oct. 30 after 25 formal go-arounds Hummell-Gorman, six minutes in, told Norton, If were going to go to impasse, go ahead and pull the trigger already. The so-called waiver language does not expire, Norton said. I dont want to debate the law because Im probably a lot better than you at that.On Oct. 30, the district and UTM reached a tentative agreement that was never put to the union membership for ratification because the Florida Education Associat ion, the unions legal umbrella, didnt agree with the furlough language.That came as a great surprise, Norton said. It should have been put to ratification.In 2011, the board mandated a seven-day unpaid furlough program that saved $1.7 million per year for two years. Superintendent Mark Porter and the board have maintained that the furloughs are gone but the language allowing them to be imposed, if finances dictate it, should stay in the contract.The last time Norton was involved with the district, UTM challenged the furlough program unsuccessfully through the state Public Employee Relations Com mission, then the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. This round of bargaining is for a one-year contract retroactive to June that covers the districts 525 teachers and 114 school-related personnel like bus drivers and food-service workers. The majority of the Wednesday talks included the review of dozens of contract articles previously covered in the tentative agreement and which the two sides do not dispute.Furlough words still the main sticking pointBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

Defenses frustrated the scorers Tuesday as Coral Shores and Marathon high schools slugged it out to finish in a 1-1 tie in girls soccer Tuesday in Tavernier. After the Hurricanes swamped the Dolphins in an 8-2 game Dec. 2, Marathon coach Cindy Durkin said she was pleased with her clubs notable improvement before the rematch. We changed some positions to strengthen the defense, Durkin said. You have to respect the skill and speed of [Coral Shores] front line or youll get burned. We knew wed have to play well. Coral Shores saw the same players as in the last game, Durkin said, but not all were in the same place.The Dolphin lineup, with eighth-graders like Takara McKnight stepping up as defensive stopper, responded. Takara played her most phenomenal game of the season at the right time, Durkin said.Hurricane coach Arthur Paterson acknowledged that a tie was like a win for Marathon. They played very well.

Column, 3BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Fins 2nd carries teamMarathon High Schools boys basketball Dolphins shook off a slow start Thursday to score 13 straight points in the second quarter, setting the tone for a 67-32 win over local rival Coral Shores. Sometimes we need a lot of emotion to get going, Marathon coach Kevin Freeman said. Finally we started making our shots and doing a good job on free throws. The Hurricanes, playing at home with a patchwork roster, took an 11-9 lead at the end of the first period and moved to a 16-11 edge by the middle of the second. Then Nelson Rojas scored eight points in the Dolphins 13-point run, giving Marathon a 24-16 advantage at halftime. The Dolphins (7-5) owned the second half with Damien Chavez connecting on three 3-pointers on the way to a game-high 18 points. Marathon finished it off by nailing 15 of 17 free throws in their 26-point fourth quarter.Three Dolphins hit double figures, led by Chavez with four treys and a 6-of-8 night from the stripe. Rojas finished with 17 points and directed the Marathon attack.Cooper Chaplin muscled his way inside for rebounds, and drew fouls that sent him to the line for 13 free throws. He made nine, including 7of-7 streak in the fourth. Shemar Fantroy scored six points. Two 3-pointers boosted Coral Shores guard Richard Jacobsen to a 10-point game, but he was the only Cane to come close to double figures. Darren Govan, Max Pyers and Kyle Peel each had four points for the Canes (0-7).

Theyre taking a lot of pride in whats going on with the program right now. Im excited with them and hope we can continue to build and get better, first-year coach Deanna Klaus said. The Dolphins jumped out to a 15-2 first-quarter lead on the Hurricanes Thursday and led 30-16 at the half. The Canes made a brief run to open the third quarter, but the Dolphins outscored them 17-8 and led 47-24 heading into the last quarter.It was really closer than it looked like there at the end, Klaus said.

Coral Shores (7-3-1) lost its last two matches of 2013, each by one goal a 3-2 loss to visiting Keys Gate on Thursday after a 2-1 loss to Palmer Trinity on Dec. 13. Weve got to get back on track, Coral Shores head coach Jorge Bosque said Thursday. Our goal is the same as it was when we started this season, to advance to the regionals for the first time in years, Bosque said. Were looking to our seniors to provide the on-the-field leadership that can get us there. Senior midfielder A.J. Paterson scored both goals in the loss to a skilled Keys Gate squad in the Canes last home match of the year. Paterson beat two defenders from the top of the box to put the Canes on the scoreboard in the first half.

I thought then that maybe we would win, said Multy, who led the Conchs with 21 points. Irate Palmer Trinity coach James Valle immediately called a time-out to address his players and what he said worked. The Falcons outscored Key West, 16-6, the rest of the way to win, 60-46, Thursday evening before a small crowd at the Bobby Menendez Gym. I told them to spread the offense to bring them out of their zone, said Valle, whose team despite missing three starters improved to 11-1. The result was layups and open shots, most of them made by 5-foot-9 junior guard Claire Hebb and 5-11 senior center Hallie Parten. Hebb scored 28 points and down the stretch made two fancy scoop shots after fakes. Parten scored 16.

Marathon answered before halftime when veteran Savannah Rodamer scored on a breakaway after a Cane defensive miss.In the scoreless second half, the Dolphins had several strong attacks at the Cane net, only to be turned away by superb saves by keeper Pookie DelPino. Pookie kept the tie alive, Paterson said.We actually moved the ball well and looked good on possession, he said. Our creativity inside the 18 [yard box] was not good, and we didnt finish.The non-district tie did not affect either teams seeding for the January postseason.Our goal is to do well in our district.

Marathon came out firing and took a 13-0 firstquarter lead before running cold in the second quarter and trailing 28-23 at the break. Hollywood was hitting three after three. We stepped out on them [on defense] and they stepped back further and hit them, Freeman said. The Dolphins rebounded in the third quarter and held a 37-35 lead heading into the fourth. The Challengers tied the game at 50-50 after a Marathon turnover with 3:00 left in regulation. Point guard Jonathan Guerra was fouled and made one of two free throws to put the Dolphins up 51-50. Hollywood failed to score on the other end and was forced to foul when the Dolphins attempted to dribble out the clock. Marathon drained its final seven free throws to earn the win. Rojas led the Dolphins with 21 points, while Jonathan Guerra added 13 points, four steals, four rebounds and six assists. Chavez also scored 13 points, and Cooper Chaplin had 11.

The Lady Gators reached the Elite Eight round of the NCAAs Division 1 playoffs last spring, finishing with an 18-3 record. I cant wait to be a Florida Gator, Hamer said in a statement. I could not have achieved my goal without all the support from my coaches over the years. Many of her Keys coaches going back to middle school joined Hamer for her signing ceremony in late November. I am certain Katharine will thrive at UF. The Gators are getting a remarkable athlete with great leadership skills, Hurri cane head coach Mark Hall said. Were just so happy to still have Kat as a team leader and mentor to our younger players for one more season.This spring, Hamer will serve as team captain and defensive leader for the Canes as they seek a fourth straight district championship. She won a starting spot as a freshman and helped the Canes to a 30-11 record over the past three seasons. In addition to winning numerous lacrosse and Academic All-American honors, Hamer has competed for Coral Shores in swimming, track, soccer and basketball.She is the daughter of Holly and Andrew Hamer, joining her father among the ranks of Gator athletes. Andrew was a UF swimmer in 1983-84.Im not sure how many people can really appreciate Kath arines earning a D-1 scholar ship, Coral Shores athletic director Rich Russell said.

Keys Gate is a good team and they outplayed us today, Bosque said. The loss may cost the Canes one spot in the district tournaments seedings but Coral Shores apparently still owns a top-three spot in the seven-team league. The district tournament begins Jan. 21 at Westminster Christian. The Canes rallied from a 6-0 loss to district leader Gulliver Prep on Dec. 6 by beating St. Brendan in a 4-0 match Dec. 11, and Florida Christian, 2-1, Dec. 9.For the Palmer game, the Canes had a shorthanded roster and had only two reserves on the sideline.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 LivingFrom trash to treasureI have a particular fondness for items made from natural materials, so its hard for me to pass a discarded wooden pallet, sawn-off log or old wooden box without stopping to think what I can do with it. Not only can these materials make a unique product, but its a good way of repurposing something that otherwise wouldve ended up in the trash, filling the landfills and generally adding to the trash volume we create on a daily basis. Im not the only one who likes to find ways to reuse.On one of my daily dog walks I chatted with Lore Stiefel, a Ramrod Key neighbor who also has a passion for reclaiming and reusing things. She finds old picture frames, wooden bowls and other vintage items with good bones and, with her creative touch, gives them new life by restoring them and adding beautiful artwork. Her work can be found at the Little Palm Island gift store on Little Torch Key and the Out of The Blue Gallery on Big Pine Key, as well as art fairs during the winter season.A co-worker, Meaghan, picked up a discarded pallet from a nearby construction company. I have always envied anyone who has the imagination to turn a mundane item into something useful and attractive.With the addition of some 4-by-4 posts for legs, some wood to trim the edges and a can of paint stain, Meaghan transformed a wooden pallet destined for the dumpster into an attractive outdoor table.Recently when my husband trimmed our buttonwood tree I asked him to save some of the larger limbs. They are about 4 inches in diameter and he cut slices from the limbs for coasters and made a candle holder from a larger piece by boring a hole into the top. His daughter used some thinner slices for a childrens party activity. A small hole was drilled into each slice and threaded with a cord. The children decorated slices with paint and glitter and they became tree ornaments and medallions. The wood looks and feels good, so I was pleased to find a way to use it for something other than trash, wood chippings or firewood. Of course, there were more wood trimmings than I could use, so the remainder has been stacked up for our fire pit. Since were in the middle of holiday season, I find myself thinking about gifts for friends and family. I like to find ways to reduce the amount of waste that is rampant over the season and, when possible, give meaningful gifts. Here are a few ideas I like to remind myself of: Reuse foam peanuts and bubble wrap. Most packaging materials for shipping can be used more than once. Instead of putting this into the trash, drop it off at UPS stores. They love to get these and reuse them.Wrap creatively. Use comics, old maps, sheet music, fabric/wallpaper scraps, re usable shopping bags.No-waste gifts. Consider favors like babysitting, dog walking, yard work, cooking or car maintenance; music or sports lessons; a gym membership; movie or theater tickets, restaurant gift certificates; home-baked gifts; tickets to a sporting event; or a contribution to a favorite nonprofit.Useful sustainable gifts.Compost bins, water timers, programmable thermostats, rain barrels, light timers, a ready-made container vegetable garden, native plants and items made locally or from reclaimed materials.Keep it simple. One thoughtful gift is better than six wrapped packages of unwanted gifts.Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education.

On the surface, Frozen seems to be a reprise of all the familiar Walt Disney animation tropes: An evil q ueen an intre p id p rincess a dashing hero, a dastardly villain and some cute sidekicks (personable reindeer; talking snowman). But look closer. Directors Chris Buck (Tarzan) and first-timer Jennifer Lee (who previously co-wrote the script for Wreck-It Ralph) use Hans Christian Andersens The Snow Queen as an inspiration not a foundation for a funny, exciting and visually dazzling adventure that q ualifies as a fullblown musical. There are eight original songs, written by the husband-and-wife team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, all of them terrific. An eventual Broadway adaptation is almost certainly assured. But for now theres the movie, which has the ring of classic Disney seamlessly combined with a modernday sensibility. Nothing about the movie feels formulaic, beginning with the central relationshi p between the two sister protagonists, the young Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell), who loves and worships her older sibling Elsa (Idina Menzel), who is blessed (cursed?) with the power of turning anything she touches into ice. After their royal parents are killed in a quick, subtle montage, the two girls have only each other to rely upon. But Elsa, fearful ofSisterslove fuels the storyMOVIE REVIEW See Frozen, 5B Frozendoes everything a Disney film usually does, but better in most instances.

The plot of Frozen doesnt follow traditional Disney rules.When she comes of age, the Queen Elsa, who inadvertently brings ruin to her kingdom by unleashing a permanent winter, runs away into the mountains and builds a solitary ice castle to live in shed rather be an outcast and live a solitary life than cause anyone harm. Anna, meanwhile, falls for a charming prince, Hans (Santino Fontana), who proposes marriage after spending just a few hours with her. But first she must bring her sister back home, relying on the help of an ice salesman, Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), and his reindeer Sven to navigate the snowy mountain range. The best non-Pixar, latter-era Disney animated movies The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King were all, at heart, love stories with supernatural obstacles for the protagonists to overcome. Frozen is different. The story is driven by the love Anna feels for her sister, who is neither evil nor crazy (Elsa is reminiscent of one of the mutants from the X-Men, an extraordinary person who doesnt know what to do with herself and has no one to guide her). Their bond is what fuels the movie, the same way the motherdaughter bond fueled Brave. But the movie sneaks in romantic complications Anna gradually realizes shes fallen in love with two men, radically different from each other and there are plentiful sight gags, from the snowman Olaf (Josh Gad), who longs to enjoy summer oblivious to the disastrous effects the heat would wreak on him, to Kristoffs reindeer, who doesnt speak but registers as strongly as any of the voiced characters. Frozen has monsters and villains and sequences of high adventure, but they erupt when you least expect them to, giving the movie a fresh, groundbreaking feel. Menzel is a renowned singer, so her fantastic musical numbers are no surprise. Bell (Heroes, Veronica Mars) is the real revelation, unleashing a lovely voice that makes you reconsider the talents of this likable but underused actress. The 3D effects in Frozen are gorgeous the plentiful snowflakes are so realistic, youre tempted to catch them with your tongue but its the films use of sly humor and remarkable CGI animation that lead you to lose yourself in this unconventional, engaging tale. Nearly every other major Hollywood studio is cranking out cartoons these days, but Frozen reminds you why Disney does it best. Side note: Frozen is preceded by a short film, Get a Horse!, that mixes vintage black-and-white Disney animation with startling contemporary effects. To reveal what the film does would be no fun, but you will be stunned and delighted by how director Lauren MacMullen uses 3D in her six-minute movie. Her picture is a giant cherry atop a delicious, deep sundae.The theme is sisterly loveFrom Frozen, 4B Smaugis dazzling but violentThe Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Rated PG-13, 161 minutes, p laying nationwide. Hobbit fans rejoice! Bilbo Baggins is back, big feet and all, in the CGIfilled, ultraviolent, actionpacked but overly long sequel to last years The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Smaug is the second part of a three-part interpretation of author J.R.R. Tolkiens novel The Hobbit, or There and Back Again. That 2012 film told the story of the first third of the novel; this second film covers the middle of the novel. The last of the trilogy, 2014s The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will conclude the saga. Originally published in the 1930s, the beloved tale of Bilbo the diminutive hobbit has enthralled readers for decades. More recently, director Peter Jacksons first Hobbit film and the Lord of the Rings movies introduced the adventures of Middle Earth to the Gen-X and Yage groups. Many of todays younger generations have grown rabidly devoted to Tolkiens tales of Hobbit, dwarves, elves and Orcs and that cult-like following helped The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug become a box-office smash on its opening weekend, grossing $74 million nationwide.This second film finds Bilbo accompanying a band of dwarves as they seek the hidden door to Lonely Mountain that will allow them to reclaim their kingdom. Gandalf the wizard joins them for part of the trek but leaves them to go off on a secret mission. Along the way, they encounter evil and ugly Orcs, giant spiders, a ferocious bear/man and woodelves, and finally come face to face with the giant fire-breathing dragon, Smaug (viewers may wonder about the title; it refers to the bare and devastated area around the dragons lair). The look of the film is beautiful and the scenery, with the mountains of New Zealand as background, is stunning. The magnificent computer-generated images are rendered almost flawlessly and there are only a few scenes that were obviously created on a computer. Jackson manages to create the world of Middle Earth so well that viewers may soon forget that its not real. The dragon, Smaug, is an extraordinary work of art that rivals any previous movie monster. The story out of Hollywood is that each scale on the dragons skin took a week to create. After seeing the astonishingly detailed dragon, audiences will believe it. The makeup and prosthetic artists deserve credit as well. The varied faces and forms of the Orcs, elves and dwarves are testament to their artistry. One might almost assume there was competition among the crew to see who could design the most outrageous face. On the negative side, the movie is too long and the plot too confusing for most average movie-goers. Only dedicated and diehard Hobbit fans will be able to follow all of the odd names and faces and tribes that populate the film. And at two hours and 41 minutes, only eight minutes shorter than the first hobbit film, this is another marathon in a movie seat. Another minor fault in Smaug is the cliff-hanger ending. Its obviously a set up for the final film in the trilogy. Older viewers will be reminded of the serial shorts of the 1940s and s that were designed to lure you back to the theater. Viewers were left hanging until the next episode, with the tag line Tune in next week for the next exciting chapter! Jackson is telling audiences theyll have to tune in next year to see the exciting conclusion. Some viewers may feel they are being manipulated (theyd be right). The other, and biggest, downside is the films violence. Smaug carries a PG13 rating and parents would be advised to heed that age limit. Younger viewers may be traumatized by the amount and graphic detail of violence. There are numerous victims graphically beheaded, shot with arrows and generally killed by swords and knives. And the giant spiders may be especially terrifying for small children. Readers may recall many intense and ferocious encounters in the book but director Jackson has expanded the violence factor so that it becomes one of the central themes of the film. Speaking of Jackson, look for him to make a cameo near the beginning of the film. As the camera sweeps through town, the director walks out of a pub looking drunk. And sharpeyed fans of The Colbert Report can look for Stephen Colbert as the eyepatch-wearing Lakewood spy who knocks on the door with the walking stick. Even with these flaws, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is better than the first Hobbit film. The action is almost nonstop, the scenery is gorgeous and the special effects are excellent. And although the film moves too fast for any real character development, the acting is adequate, with Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel a welcome addition to the cast.Its the second in Hobbit trilogyMOVIE REVIEW Martin Freeman returns as Bilbo Baggins in the latest Hobbitinstallment. 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernier, Florida 33070NOWALLDIGITAL!Check movies and show times at our WEBSITEwww.bbtheatres.comor to call our 24 HOUR MOVIE HOTLINE 853-7003 Craig Wanous KeysFilm The official website of the Keynoter and Reporter Newspapers

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 10B Saturday, December 21, 2013 Can I feed them? she asked. I nodded and, before I could reach the transom, she had already hopped aboard our Key West charter boat Premium Time and was rolling up her sleeves. She grabbed what was left of a yellowtail snapper and leaned as far over the port gunnel as possible, just enough to immerse the bait into the harbor water. Instantly, a tarpon rushed in and grabbed the offering, throwing saltwater and echoing across the marina with a loud slurping noise. The dock was full of people and most were recording the young and fearless Melissa as she continued the same sequence over and over again until the leftovers were gone. She was in her element. Melissa Foster is in the U.S. Navy and stationed in the Key West. Her job title is aviation electronics technician with a rank of petty officer third class. She works on F18 Super Hornets and is part of Strike Fighter Squadron VFA-106 out of the Boca Chica Airfield. She continued to show up at the A&B Marina dock in Key West with growing enthusiasm and even less fear as the tarpon pummeled her offerings. Time to get her out fishing. The staggering cost of living in the Florida Keys has not been fully considered within the military machine, based on wage. Although their basic needs are taken care of and the pride of serving is clear, the extras are difficult to afford things like fishing, diving and boating. Being so close to the water and not being able to enjoy it fully is a common theme among residents and military alike. Knowing this, we always make arrangements for any active military to enjoy the water at a substantial discount when we are able to. In Melissas case, it came in the form of a holiday split charter. After her multiple visits to the dock, we decided to invite her along on a bottom-fishing trip aboard the Premium Time out of the A&B Marina. Her excitement and appreciation were clear leading up to the big day. As the fishing techniques were explained after anchoring the Premium Time in sloppy seas offshore, Melissa answered yes sir or no sir most of the time. Her Texas accent added to the charm of this powerful young ladys manners that surely makes her parents Ronnie and Monica Foster proud.There is a clear quality about her that explains her successes at such a young age. She wanted to raise the bar and fish the bottom rod for a shot at catching her first grouper no yellowtailing just grouper fishing.Most beginner grouper anglers end up in the rocks the first few times and eventually learn through failure how to dig for grouper. This wasnt the case for Melissa. Textbook grouper digging was the way she played her game. Quietly but with force, she continually bent the rod in 3to 5-foot seas, landing quality grouper and confidently holding each fish for the camera and smiling sweetly. A short half-day trip close to Key West was perfect for Melissa. Back on land, the dock audience gathered as the fish were offloaded. Questions started coming from the crowd and Melissa gladly answered with a sparkle in her eye and a grouper in her hands. Did you catch those? they would ask. Melissa would answer, Yes maam or Yes, sir each time, then go on to explain the details. I couldnt help but be proud of who she was and how important it is to appreciate the military members who are here in the Florida Keys serving, as well as veterans of the armed forces. This wont be her only time to join us on a fishing trip, thats for sure. During the holidays, our military men and women are in the minds and hearts of many. One way to give back is to sponsor a chartered trip for a crew of service personnel. Many captains, dive masters and adventure coordinators are ready to help get them out and on the water.
