Elliott (No. 4) can be seen being embraced by one of the crowd members. Key Wests Lady Conchs won their own district, and the Coral Shores High girls are also in the state playoffs. Stories, 1BRetrial ordered for former copA state appeals court ruled Wednesday that a retired police captain serving a life sentence for a 2009 shooting on Plantation Key should get a new trial on attempted-murder charges. That does not mean William Tom Skinner, 58, will be released from the states Dade Correctional Institution in the near future, Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Thursday. This is not over, Vogel said. The decision does not say they are reversing everything. A Monroe County jury convicted Skinner, a former Miami Beach police officer, in May 2011 on two counts of attempted second-degree murder, and one count of armed burglary. Skinner was arrested June 1, 2009, after he fired six shots during a fracas with his estranged wife and her boyfriend at a Plantation Key Colony home. The wifes boyfriend survived a bullet wound to his shoulder. The boyfriend was shot as he attempted to hold his front door shut. Indira Skinner was choked earlier in the argument with her husband but not hit by gunfire. The Skinners son, then age 4, was in the house but not physically hurt. Sheriffs Office deputies reaching the scene used a stun gun to subdue Skinner when he apparently reached for another handgun in his car.After a lengthy trial centering on Skinners mental state during the attack, the jury voted to convict on the second-degree attempted murder counts rather than premeditated attempted murder.Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia sentenced Skinner to life on two separate counts, one of attempted seconddegree murder and one of armed burglary. Skinner was given 15 years on the remaining attempted-murder conviction.On Wednesday, the states Third District Court of Appeal ruled that a fundamental error in stateapproved jury instructions in effect during the 2011 trial did not properly allow the jury to consider a lesser charge of attempted manslaughter.Because of language in the standard jury instruction, there was no real distinction between [attempted] seconddegree murder and the lesser charge of manslaughter, said Deana K.

It appears the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services Florida Caribbean Migratory Bird Field Office agrees. In a Jan. 13 12-page letter to the state Department of Economic Opportunity copied to numerous federal, state and local officials Field Office Leader Cindy Fury recommends DEO not approve a Community Development Block Grant to help finance a zip line, which Crane Point calls an ecoadventure canopy tour. Fury, saying Fish and Wildlife strongly recommend[s] that a zip line not be state financed, cites potential adverse impacts to the white-crowned pigeon and their habitat.

This has been an emotional roller-coaster, said boat owner Kevin Wilkinson, 59, who lived in Marathon aboard the 1978 Bombay Clipper named Imma-nu-el Wilkinson was sailing alone from Boot Key Harbor to Miami when he was caught by a fierce storm front. After battling seas for hours, Wilkinson was forced to abandon his vessel.

This is a normal kid who needs to live a normal life, the relative said. The relative said he looked after the boy and his siblings for a summer after their mother unexpectedly dropped them off at the relatives home. The first month was hell. After that, they were fine, the man said. The relative has several of his own children and wants custody of his nephew and the nephews siblings.Someone needs to shed light on what is going on with these children.... They do have a father and an entire loving family support system who dreams of the day that they could share their love and lives with these children, the uncle said in an email. Any home at this point would be better that the one they are in.According to the relative, the investigators with the Florida Department of Children and Families have been to the boys home repeatedly and documented allegations of abuse and neglect, but still the child and his two siblings remain with the mother and her live-in boyfriend.Lissett Valdes-Valle, a DCF spokeswoman, confirmed agency investigators have a history with that family. Citing state law, she could not, however, confirm how many times DCF investigators have visited the home, how many or what kinds of allegations have been levied against the family, or any investigator findings. Valdes-Valle also would not discuss reasons why DCF investigators chose to let the children stay in the home.When The ReporterDCF confirms agency knows the familyBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOSee Threats, 2A Appeals court: Jury direction flawed in Skinners attempted-murder trialPhoto courtesy TAMMIE LANEYThe Imma-nu-el, formerly owned by Marathon liveaboard Kevin Wilkinson, lies grounded on Singer Island in Palm Beach County. The boat was damaged by a storm and then looted, Wilkinson says.
spotted drifting about a mile off Singer Island, near Riviera Beach. The sloop, sails shredded, eventually grounded last Saturday near the Palm Beach Marriott Beach Resort before the Coast Guard reached it. People crawled all over it before officers arrived to protect the vessel, Wilkinson said. It was basically looted. Anything of value was stripped from it. A marine salvor pulled the boat from the beach Sunday. Wilkinson, unemployed and living on a limited disability pension from his U.S. Navy service, could not afford the recovery cost. So he agreed to sign the boat over to the salvor to pay for the salvage.Then [the tow company] called and said because it was my home, I could have the boat back for no payment, said Wilkinson, then unaware of the vessels condition. That was the upside of the roller-coaster.... I took a bus and train to get up there.Arriving at the marina Monday, he found the boat had been scavenged and was leaking badly, despite being pumped out earlier in day.Now the boats a liability for the salvor, Wilkinson said. They tried to give it back to me but I dont have the financial means or resources to put it back together.Wilkinson said he found a trap rope totally wrapped around the boats propeller and shaft. He believes that kept the boat from making any headway in the storm. It doesnt change the outcome but I feel better knowing that I did everything possible to save it, Wilkinson said. Mentally and emotionally, Im OK. At least I have some closure. The American Red Cross provided financial help for some new clothes, he said. After sleeping on friends couches this past week, Wilkinson bought a backpack and sleeping bag. I dont know what my next step is, Wilkinson said, but I have a new chapter for my autobiography.Monroe Countys chance to receive much-needed state funding for sewer construction this year received a boost on Wednesday, according to state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo).Raschein told the Keynoter Friday that she was assured by Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday that he intends to include the second $50 million allotment of the 2009 so-called $200 million Mayfield grant in his 2014-15 budget request. He said it would be in his budget. That was very exciting news, but thats just a recommendation and we need to get it through, Raschein said. A Florida governors budget, as Raschein noted, is essentially recommendations that are taken into consideration by the state House and Senate in forming each years budget. I cant reiterate enough that these are the governors recommendations, but the Legislature actually crafts the budget, she said. The Legislature authorized the $200 million for Keys sewer projects in 2009, but it wasnt until 2012 that the state Cabinet allocated the first $50 million. That was split between Monroe County ($30 million) and the village of Islamorada ($20 million). The next $50 million, if awarded, would include $20 million each for the city of Marathon and Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and cities of Key West and Key Colony Beach would divvy up the remaining money.Raschein said Scott understands the importance of the grant to Keys communities, which combined are taking on more than $1 billion worth of stormwater and wastewater improvements.He does want to help the Keys out, she said. Its an unfunded mandate and its not fair on a small community.All Keys sewer entities must have sewers in place by December 2015, per a state mandate.A potential hurdle to the allocation making it through both the House and Senate this year is that Scott plans to include the $50 million in the general revenue portion of his proposed budget, essentially $50 million in cash.Raschein noted that the first $50 million allocation of the Mayfield grant was awarded via bond, so there is precedent to take that route. It would be issued via the Appropriations Committee. Doing the bond is definitely an easier sell, she said. Judge tosses slaying defendants confessionA Monroe County Circuit Court judge has thrown out the confession of a woman awaiting trial for the 2007 murder of husband, who was found wrapped in plastic and stuffed in the hull of his boat docked in a Key Largo marina.Judge Luis Garcia ruled that Denise Bozarth, 40, asked a Florida Department of Law enforcement detective for an attorney before confessing to bludgeoning her husband, 62-year-old Edward Bozarth, to death. Both he and Denise Bozarth lived on a sailboat called the Screw U 2, which was docked at Gilberts Marina. Denise Bozarth was arrested on March 21, 2012, in DeFuniak Springs. Monroe County Sheriffs Office detectives suspected Denise Bozarth was the killer from the beginning, but lacked enough evidence for a warrant until March 2012. Her friends told detectives that Denise had talked about killing her husband before, and she reportedly try to hire a former boyfriend to do the deed. Detectives say Denise expected to come into $650,000 that her husband had inherited from his mother shortly before he was killed. But according to a transcript of her March 15, 2012, interview with the FDLE agent, it appears Denise Bozarth asked to speak to an attorney more than once, but the agent kept the interview going.According to the transcript, the FDLE agent said: The story youve laid out is, is kind of comical at this point. I think everybody knows that. And I dont really understand why its taken so long to get back with you on this, but I mean, youve got to have some kind of defense here, Denise.You have to have some kind of a true story that you can lay out that makes sense to us, you know what I mean, for your defense attorney and the prosecutors. I think theyll be sympathetic towards what.... At that point, Denise interrupted the agent and asked, Can I talk to an attorney first? The agent responded, Yeah. I mean, obviously its something that youre going to have to work out with your attorney. Denise responded that she was worried about her kids growing up without a mother. The agent responded that he needed the real story to tell the people in the Keys. Again, Denise asked, Would I be able to talk to my attorney today? The agent said, You can talk to anybody you want. Garcia ruled Jan. 9 that in the instant matter, the defendant clearly asked for an attorney. [T]here is no ambiguity in the words can I talk to an attorney first, or in the subsequent statement, Would I be able to talk to my attorney today? or the statement about not knowing anybody and not being able to afford one.

After he made the threat, he ran outside the classroom.Witnesses say the teacher evacuated his classroom, fearing what the boy might do when he returned.Parents not toldKey Largo School parents are outraged that school administration never told parents about the incident. Instead, most parents found out about it after reading someones Facebook page several days later. No parent should have to hear of a threat of this magnitude at the dinner table from a child that has heard it first, parent Rob Bulkiewicz told School Board members at a meeting in Marathon Tuesday night.Not only didnt they tell the parents, school counselors debriefed students in the classroom about the incident without telling their parents, according to several parents.Also, a so-called panic button, which is designed to alert a schools main office to a classroom emergency, reportedly didnt work after the teacher pushed his repeatedly while the boy threatened to shoot and stab his classmates.Principal Julia Hoar referred all questions to Superintendent Mark Porter this week. Porter said Tuesday that he does not know for sure what happened with the panic button but defended Hoar and her staff, while not getting into specifics.Key Largo School leadership and staff are very concerned about student safety, Porter said.Hoar issued a recorded robocall to all Key Largo School parents Wednesday night telling them that a failsafe has been put in place to make sure all call buttons are in working order.She also told parents in the recording that the superintendents team recommends in the future that communication to parents of students in a classroom where violent threats are issued will be provided, and that the policy will be instituted districtwide.

If allowed a zip line is indeed constructed, Fury recommends intensive on-site investigations that could include a multi-year monitoring study of the pigeon. A two-year study may be adequate depending on protocol and results, she wrote. Fury was reviewing the proposed zip line because the Marathon City Council has secured a $735,000 Community Development Block Grant through the DEO in support of Crane Points efforts. The city would act as a conduit to the grant funding.Fury told the Keynoter that DEO requested her office look over the plans and offer its recommendation.Its not that were saying they cannot do it. Were just recommending the grant not move forward. There is no permit from the Fish and Wildlife Service, she said.The nonprofit Crane Point board of directors came up with the idea for the estimated $1.1 million zip line as a means of generating a steady revenue stream for the struggling museum and nature center at mile marker 50. But the board has been at odds with many local residents since day one, and a lawsuit is likely in an effort to kill the plans. In addition to interfering with whitecrowned pigeons, detractors claim the course would not be a proper use for the conservation-native zoned property.Jeff Smith, president of the Crane Point board, told the Keynoter hes not overly concerned with Furys letter because the nonprofit requires no permit from Fish and Wildlife.

have the opportunity to make that distinction.In February 2013, the Florida Supreme Court found in a separate case that standard jury instructions for manslaughter were fundamentally flawed. The Third District Court of Appeal ruled that Skinners case was essentially similar, like several others statewide.Skinner correctly argues that he is entitled to relief on the attempted manslaughter jury instruction issue, says the new decision. The appeals court also said a previous attorney handling an earlier Skinner appeal made a serious error in not raising the jury-instruction issue during a previous appeal. The Jan. 15 ruling does not hold local prosecutors or Garcia responsible for the reversal. That was the law as it stood at the time, Vogel said. The Florida Attorney Generals Office and the Monroe County State Attorneys Office have asked for a clarification of the four-page decision handed down Wednesday in Skinners case. He also was convicted of the armed-burglary charge that has a life sentence attached to it, Vogel said. Our position is that the burglary conviction is still there and not reversed. The Jan. 15 appeals decision does not become formal for several weeks. Assuming the armedburglary conviction stands, local prosecutors may decide not to pursue a new trial on attempted murder, Vogel said. That was a very expensive case since [Skinner] raised the insanity issue and we had to bring doctors in. Friends of Clyde Burnett, a former Key Colony Beach mayor and city manager of Marathon, this week mourned his death. He died Tuesday from complications stemming from a Nov. 30 fall at the Indigo Reef residential and vacation-rental community he managed in Marathon. He had been at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he died, since the fall. He was on a respirator, a kidney dialysis machine and some type of heart monitor before he succumbed, Key Colony City Commissioner Ron Sutton said. We worked together for a long time in Key Colony Beach. I think he did some good things. I enjoyed working with him and hell be missed, Sutton said. Burnett had been managing Indigo Reef since resigning as Marathon city manager in October 2009 due to allegations of harassment by a fellow city employee. He had been hired on May 1, 2008. Marathon Mayor Dick Ramsay said he knew Burnett for a long time. He was a council member for almost a year during Burnetts Marathon tenure.Im truly sorry and sympathetic to his family. He was a great man and Im sure hes in a better place, Ramsay said.Prior to joining the city, Burnett served four consecutive terms on the Key Colony Beach City Commission, from 2000 through 2008. He was mayor/administrator from 2002 until 2008.Former Collectors Corner owner Stan Haines was a close friend of Burnett. The two were partners in a division of Haines business, Collectors Corner Embroidery, for more than a year. Burnett sold his stake to pursue the city manager job in Marathon.He was a great friend and business partner. Every day working with that guy was great. He was so even-tempered and steady, Haines said.Haines got to know Burnett well while he worked at what is now the former Marine Bank and Burnett was with Key Colony. He said Burnett had his troubles but that hell remember him as a decent man. I think Marathon really missed out on a lot because of that. He went on to the condo business and saved them a small fortune. He was just a really good administrator, Haines said. Burnetts wife Gail could not be reached for comment by press time. Its unclear what, if any, funeral or memorial arrangements might be made.

Commissioners could be severely penalized for even trying to pass restrictions, he said.Saying he is no enemy to the Second Amendment, Commissioner George Neugent continued, I would have concerns if somebody was shooting guns next door to me.There are little small cannons you can fire that break windows, theyre so loud, acting Mayor Danny Kolhage said. Are there no limits?This is preemptive to the countys ability to zone and provide other kinds of protections, Kolhage said. Commissioner Heather Carruthers wondered why the county could noise-law violations for playing an electric guitar too loud but not for firing weapons. Shillinger paraphrased the legislators intent: Thou shall not do indirectly what we said you cannot do directly. Other counties have encountered similar situations but have been unable to act, he added. Commissioners agreed to seek support from the Florida Association of Counties for changes in the law, and to speak with state lawmakers on the issue.LOWER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comFood fight at Higgs BeachA small food cart allowed to work at Higgs Beach in Key West could lead to big legal trouble, Monroe County commissioners heard Thursday.What appeared to be routine approval for a one-year contact for a paleta vendor at the county-owned park got sidetracked when a second mobile vendor, Steve The Ice Man Dickstein, asked for a similar deal. This is the first time anybody heard about it, Dickstein said. If youre going to put a mobile vendor [at Higgs Beach], somebody whos been here for years should have the opportunity. Dickstein, who has peddled Italian ices as a licensed Key West vendor for six years, said he did not want to prevent Higgs Beach Paletas owner Pamela Uslander from working at Higgs Beach but he wants the right to sell there, too. Dickstein said he asked county staff about getting approval to work at Higgs Beach a year ago but was told that was not then permitted. Commissioner Heather Carruthers, active in plans to improve Higgs Beach, said Uslanders paletas proposal has been endorsed by park support groups as a pilot project for mobile vendors. We dont want to see a proliferation of vendors out there, Carruthers said. Paletas are a frozen treat filled with different types of fruit. County Attorney Bob Shillinger advised against approving Uslanders contract at Thursdays meeting. Im a little concerned that if there is interest in competition that we solesource it out, Shillinger said. Candidly, I am concerned about an antitrust issue. Carruthers then asked for a three-month contract for Uslander while the legal situation is considered. We would benefit from having a vendor out there to see how it works, she said. Commissioners Danny Kolhage and George Neugent balked at approving the paletas bid. There has to be consistency and transparency about how we arrived at this one cart vendor, Neugent said. The question was pushed back to a special Jan. 31 commission meeting being held in Key West.In other items at an abbreviated meeting with only three commissioners attending:Approval of a $14,000 stained-glass project at the new Conch Key firehouse was pulled from the agenda.

Marathon Mayor Dick Ramsay says the city could use a few more hotel rooms.Citing ongoing and potential hotel redevelopment in the wake of the city nearly finishing construction of its central sewer system, Ramsay, at Tuesdays City Council meeting, requested staff prepare an estimate of future needs.The state Department of Economic Opportunity oversees development in Monroe County because the Keys are an Area of Critical State Concern. That, in turn, has DEO deciding how many building permit allocations go to Monroe County and its cities annually.Recognizing Marathons progress in nearly finishing construction of its sewer system, the state Cabinet awarded the city 100 new hotel units in January 2012. There had been a longstanding moratorium on new rooms, or transient rental units, prior to that. The City Council awarded the first 65 units last year to four properties, and could borrow forward another 100 from its annual 24 market-rate allocations. Ramsay said he would be unwilling to do that.I would object to that because theyre residential units. I would like to ask the council to look into the need [for transient permits] and report back to us as soon as possible, he said. Other than the citys remaining 35, hotel units must be existing property rights, or purchased on the open market and transferred to a property if their owner no longer wants them. Councilwoman Ginger Snead agreed with Ramsays idea for a staff report, but urged the council to exercise caution before contacting the state. She noted the sewer system is not fully complete. We cant quite go to the state yet and tell them we finished anything. I think we should tread lightly and we should tread carefully, she said. City Manager Roger Hernstadt who starts as Marco Island city manager on Feb. 3 said the study could be prepared in time for the Jan. 28 City Council meeting. In other business Tuesday: The council presented longtime Marathon High School Principal Kay Gradick an award for being a part of the citys Parks and Recreation Committee for 13 years. The 95-year-old attended her final meeting on Dec. 11.Vice Mayor Chris Bull announced that Ralph Lucignano, his appointment to the Planning Commission, had resigned after four years. Bull appointed attorney Patrick Stevens to replace him.The council put off discussing City Hall value engineering estimates from the two low bidders to build a new City Hall, West Construction Inc. out of Lake Worth and Botsford Overholt Construction from Marathon. The city budgeted $5.5 million for the roughly 15,000-square-foot, onestory building on stilts that would include a 200-person meeting/banquet hall for council meetings and other events. But bids came in high and Hernstadt had to negotiate with the two companies. The results are slated to be discussed at a Jan. 30 special meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.

An advisory charter review committee isnt exactly what Marathon City Councilwoman Ginger Snead had in mind when she recommended changes in November to the 15-year-old document guiding all aspects of city government. But the council adopted Councilman Mark Senmartins suggestion on Tuesday to create the fivemember citizen panel to review the document prior to any changes the council makes to it. Snead was the lone dissenter, saying public input would be welcome but that such a responsibility should lie with the council. We were elected by these residents, she said. We owe it to them to do one of the most major jobs this city has and thats reviewing this charter. I truly believe this should be something the council does. Senmartin argued that outside public input would be invaluable to the process.We havent had a charter review since 2006, so were overdue. Were not reinventing the wheel here, so Im hoping we can move forward with this and possibly even choose a board tonight, he said.In 2006, the council elected to change the way council elections are held. Rather than having election for individual seats, the two or three most vote-getters overall win election to the board. The new charter committee will feature some familiar faces with likely more than a passing knowledge of the document.Senmartin appointed attorney and former Councilman Frank Greenman, while Councilman Chris Bull appointed former Mayor John Bartus. Councilman Rich Keating appointed former Mayor Mike Cinque, who termed out of office in November.Mayor Dick Ramsay and Snead said on Tuesday they would make their appointments in the near future. The council set a sunset date for the committee of April 1, but could add more time if necessary.Sneads original intention was to propose changes to the section of the charter related to enforcement of violations by council members. For example, Ramsay has said he has worked directly with city staff on issues, which is not allowed; council members must go through the city manager. As it stands, there are no provisions to punish such violations.City Council creates charter review panelMARATHONAs expected, impasse declaredAs expected, labor negotiations between the United Teachers of Monroe and the Monroe County School Board formally hit the wall on Thursday with union President Holly Hummell-Gorman declaring an official impasse.Thats what happens when two sides cant agree on contract issues. In this case, its language that allows the School Board to invoke unpaid furlough days on teachers and support staff if district finances tailspin and the money is needed to keep the budget above water. The first step is joint mediation with the Federal Bureau of Mediation and Conciliation Services. If either side doesnt like the services decision after that, either one can contest the outcome to the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee, although any decisions end up back in front of the School Board, which has final say. This isnt the first time the two sides have gone to Mediation and Conciliation Services. Mediator Gilbert Escudero moderating a bargaining session in October. Following that, both sides thought they had a deal but it fell through. No matter what the decision is, board member John Dick said, it comes back to the board. The board can say yes or no and thats final. Using unpaid furloughs, the district cut more than $13 million in spending between 2010 and 2012, with savings of $1.7 million per year derived from the mandatory seven-day furloughs. We cannot agree to the inclusion of [language allowing that again] in our contract, union President Holly Hummell-Gorman said. As was proven by the blatant disregard of the last binding contract with the Monroe County School Board, as long as this language is included, nothing that is agreed upon would be required to be honored by this board. 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. Superintendent Mark Porter led 25 negotiating sessions with UTM before turning the most recent two meetings over to labor attorney Bob Norton.

Board revisits Manor issueWhat to do with Marathon Manor? Thats a question the Monroe County School District has been kicking around essentially since it bought the former nursing home for $7.4 million, when the South Florida real estate market was red hot in 2005. The topic came back up Tuesday when the School Board met at Marathon High School, on Sombrero Beach Road adjacent to the building and six-acre parcel. Board members broached two general concepts during the informal discussion: Sell the property as is or try to convert the 50 affordablehousing building permit allocations tied to it into potentially more value transient building permit allocations, which could then be marketed for sale. Marathon board member John Dick said the best way to determine the market is for School District staff to prepare a request for proposals for firms to make a pitch. He also said its important that the board know what a potential developer is going to do with the property to ensure a compatible use with the adjacent middle/high school. I think we need to explore it all the way, he said. Weve got to know what [a potential buyer is] going to do with it. When the district bought the property, it envisioned Marathon Manor being converted to teacher housing, and allowing for more school parking. Board member Andy Griffiths in 2012 pitched an idea to convert the affordable permits to transient licenses, which he brought back up this week.The state Department of Economic Opportunity decides how many building permits the Keys get each year.The guidelines associate certain numbers of occupants and vehicles with particular types of construction, using that data to construct a hurricane evacuation time model that would allow for all Monroe County residents and tourists to leave the island chain before disaster strikes. Last year, Marathon received from the state 100 new transient allocations, as well as the right to borrow forward 100 more from its 24 annual transient allocations; 65 units were awarded by the City Council to four resort developments. Picking up on that, Griffiths said, Right now the city of Marathon is going through extraordinary renovation of its lodging sector.

All fishermen dont belong in the same boat. Commercial fishing in the United States is one of the most heavily regulated and accountable industries in the world. Unfortunately, data collection for the recreational angling community isnt on the same level. Annual catch limits and the Magnuson-Stevens Act are proven and effective methods of fisheries management and benefit both commercial and recreational interests alike. Neither is more burdensome on recreational anglers than any other user group. At a time when commercial, charter and recreational fishermen are forging new alliances in fisheries management benefiting all of us, Brownlee cant restrain himself from stirring the pot of animosity between users. Bill Kelly Executive director, Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association MarathonAdvice for Crane PointCrane Point Museum and Nature Center has lacked direction for years and has strayed from the founders original mission and vision. According to their website, it is preservation, conservation and the restoration of rare and endangered areas of the Florida Keys.Sadly, I let my membership lapse and my family no longer includes Crane Point as a must-see on their visits here. A zip line is not the cure for Crane Points ills. The zip line will almost certainly fail, leaving Crane Point bankrupt, the property scarred by towers and Marathon on the hook for big bucks.It seems self-evident that a zip line will be a noisy eyesore prior to its demise. I oppose the height variance granted by the city for the zip line. I respect and admire Kelly Grinter and the Marathon Wild Bird Center thats within Crane Point. However, it seems to be a conflict of interest to have Kelly complete the survey for the impact of the zip line on the hammocks birds. The survey should be conducted by an entity with no business relationship with Crane Point.There are so many things that Crane Points management could do to enhance and promote the hammock. Here are a few ideas, in no particular order:Embrace social media. Put a link to Facebook, Pinterest, etc., on Crane Points Web page.Promote beekeeping. Give classes. Sell Crane Points own honey.Add boardwalks and interpretive signage.Stage reenactments and have people in period costumes talk about the settlers lifestyles and survival.Teach plant propagation and sell native plants.Partner with the Florida Native Plant Society and hold meetings on site.Reach out to local experts and give seminars and demonstrations on historical uses of native plants.Salvage downed native trees and show the uses and beauty through woodworking with native wood.Try to woo back the Florida Keys Birding Festival or Earth Day celebration to introduce new patrons to Crane Point.I support and welcome a rebirth for Crane Point. A zip line for Crane Point is just the wrong thing in the wrong place. Lisa Gordon Marathon Editors note: Grinter says she has been asked by Crane Point officials to perform a birding survey before and after a zip line is constructed but has not done any survey yet.Hospital is warm, fuzzyRecently on a cold Tuesday night, I had to go to Fishermens Community Hospitals Emergency Room due to a severe throat condition. I want to thank Kimmy, Dr. Matt, Stephanie and the others there for their care and kindness.They covered me in warm blankets and although it was cold in the ER, they put their only space heater by my bed. They kept me company all night until I went to the operating room. I will never forget their kindness and help.Nancy Hicks MarathonSoldiers made welcomeOn Jan. 10, we were excited and inspired when close to 80 soldiers and support staff from the Wounded Warrior Projects Soldier Ride visited the Dolphin Research Center as part of the Charles Evans Day for the Wounded Warrior Project.Staff, volunteers, daily visitors and guests lined the pathway to welcome the group as they arrived on grounds. For the fifth year in a row, the soldiers enjoyed a delicious lunch and a funfilled, exciting Dolphin Encounter swim with the dolphins. Providing this joyful experience for the brave men and women in our countrys armed forces is possible because the Florida Keys community unites to make it happen.The Dolphin Research Center would like to salute the businesses and individuals who empowered this heartwarming, welcoming day for Americas military heroes: The Charles Evans Foundation, Captain Hooks Dive Shop, Calm Waters Spa at Hawks Cay Resort, DRC member Barbara Meyd and Custom Tails Jewelry, and DRCs volunteers. The men and women give so much of themselves in service to this country. We are deeply appreciative to everyone who worked with us to give something back to these soldiers on their recent visit to the Florida Keys.

Teresa Regelmann PKS office manager Plantation KeyHeadline unacceptableOn Jan. 8, the Keynoter used the term paddy wagon while talking about the Theatre of the Sea sewer protest in Islamorada. A little history of these words: Paddy wagon is a variation of paddy. The term paddy wagon derives from the idea that the Irish were all criminals, and when the police came to quell a brawl or something of the like, they would just be rounding up a bunch of paddys. In this age of diversity and sensitivity toward the N word and homophobic slurs, this is unacceptable. Please in the future ensure that no racial slurs are used on any class of people Donna Juriaco Plantation KeyThey recognize that workplace discrimination not only wrong, but also bad for economyIn a heartening show of unity and economic good sense, 11 major employers in Florida have joined with Equality Florida, the states leading gay rights group, to push for a state law banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Called the Florida Business Coalition for a Competitive Workforce, the companies from Walt Disney Resort to Wells Fargo have committed to convincing the Florida Legislature that workplace equality for everyone is not only fair and just, but is also good for Floridas economy. The more diverse the states workforce, the broader the net is cast for talented and innovative employees. As Rich Jeffers, communications director for Orlando-based Darden restaurants, told the Miami Heralds Steve Rothaus, We think having a diverse employee base makes us a stronger company. It doesnt make any sense to turn anyone away. The Orlando-based company, owner of Red Lobster, Olive Garden and the Capital Grille, has long had protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees and customers. It recently was awarded a 100 percent score for corporate equality by the Human Rights Campaign, a top U.S. gayrights group. The co-sponsors of the anti-discrimination bill, state Rep. Holly Raschein (Key Largo) and Rep. Joe Saunders (D-Orlando), and state Sen. Joseph Abruzzo (D-Wellington) see this as not just a fairness issue but also a way to ensure that Florida can attract the most qualified workforce available -another way of growing Floridas economy. Theyre absolutely right, as those 11 major Florida employers in the coalition already know. Maybe the corporate clout will finally nudge the Legislature into shedding its antiquated view of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) issues. For years, gays and lesbians in Florida couldnt adopt children. And they cant marry legally in the Sunshine State, either. Those who once made these antiquated policies seem like a good idea have long ago been disproved and discarded throughout much of the country, where polls show that most Americans have positive views about gay marriage and other gay rights. Seventeen states now recognize gay marriage, and four states recognize some form of same-sex union. But for eight years straight a bill banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity hasnt been heard by a single legislative committee in Tallahassee. Thats disgraceful. Local governments are way ahead of Tallahassee on this equal rights issue. Miami and Miami Beach have laws that ban such discrimination in the workplace, and so do Key West and Monroe, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Miami HeraldBoard presses forward on Higgs Beach workBy the end of January, Monroe County staff plans to request designs for moving Atlantic Boulevard as it runs through Higgs Beach in Key West, the target of a $5 million multi-year redevelopment plan. At the Monroe County Commissions Thursday meeting in Key West, Kevin Wilson, the countys public works and engineering division director, gave an update on how the county is proceeding with Higgs.Wilson said a request for qualifications for the work and cost projections is expected to be issued by the end of January. Generally, plans are for a phased park redesign anchored by shifting Atlantic Boulevard away from the beach side of the area.Several speakers asked the commission to make sure that the beachs dog park, which will be affected by the road construction, remains operating. Commissioner Heather Carruthers, who has championed the project with her Friends of Higgs Beach committee, said dog-park users were involved in the multiyear master plan creation and We will keep everybody informed. Every park we have put in place, we have taken our beatings, Commissioner George Neugent said. But almost invariably after the park was in place and people adjusted to it, the compliments come. Wilson said proximity of the dog park, along with a border with a Federal Aviation Administration communications tower and the citys Indigenous Park on nearby White Street, are critical interactions that will need to be addressed during future design. Commissioners David Rice and Sylvia Murphy were absent from the session.Last year, the county spent more than $200,000 building a new playground on the Atlantic Ocean side of Higgs, another component of the master plan. Other specifics include a small visitor center and transportation depot.Next: Seeking plans and costs for road moveBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCOUNTY COMMISSIONAs expected, contractor suedThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday directed its attorneys to sue Coastal Construction in an attempt to audit the builders records from its $38 million reconstruction of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West. Attorney Dirk Smits immediately complied, suing Wednesday, although a court date hadnt been set by Friday, according to Monroe County Clerk of Courts Office records. School Board member Ed Davidson, who has led the charge on the post-construction audit, said the lawsuit is access to public records.The board agreed in October to hire Chicagobased McGladrey LLP to conduct a post-construction audit for $45,000, with an eye on recouping any costs associated with contractor error.Before opting for a fullblown audit, the board hired Marathon-based accountant Steve Pribramsky, a former District 1 board member, to conduct a so-called attestation that found numerous problems with project accounting on the districts, not Coastals, side. Coastal feels thats enough. Based upon the fact that this exact review of Coastals records has been made and fully cooperated with by Coastal and given further that the McGladrey request is identical to that of Pribramsky, Coastal must respectfully decline to provide multiple reviews of our project records by multiple consultants to the School Board, Coastal attorney Michael Utley wrote to Smits on Dec. 18. During the Tuesday meeting at Marathon High School, Smits said Coastal initially offered access to the records but changed their mind. Its a brick wall now.Halfway through construction, part of the school complex had to be redesigned to conform with Key Wests building height regulations. And a foundation survey overlooked unsuitable soil that had to be trucked out and replaced with new fill, costing some $300,000.McGladrey is tasked with analyzing billing compared to costs, change orders, quality control and a contractual savings split between the district and Coastal.Then-Superintendent Joe Burke launched the construction in 2009 with a low-interest federal stimulus loan.Board wants records access for HOB rebuildBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

And Costa owner Carnival Corp., has announced massive investments in ship upgrades following the disabling fire aboard the Carnival Triumph a year ago.I first started cruising in 1965 and certainly Ive not seen this level of attention and focus on safety, said Douglas Ward, author of 2014 Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ships. I think all the cruise lines are definitely going in the right direction.Some critics say the changes are more talk than action, but cruise companies and longtime observers say the prolonged attention has led to a safer product and a greater willingness to shine a light on sensitive subjects. Everyone agrees, however, that there is more work to be done.Certainly the policies that have been adopted over the past two years have added to the safety capability of the industry and safety is a journey, its not a destination, said Michael McGarry, senior vice president of public affairs for the Cruise Lines International Association, based in Fort Lauderdale.After the Costa Concordiastruck rocks and partially capsized the night of Jan. 13, 2012, off the Tuscan island of Giglio and killing 32, the association announced a review of safety procedures. A panel of safety experts drew up 10 recommendations that were adopted as standards by the International Maritime Organization. Most headlines were devoted to a rule that requires cruise ships to hold emergency drills for embarking passengers before a ship leaves port which had not happened when Concordia crashed. But other important changes required ships to carry more life vests than required by law and to ensure that crew members have twice-yearly practice loading and operating lifeboats. The damaged vessel is now slated to be towed from Giglio in June to a port that has not yet been named; it will then be dismantled. The ships captain at the time of the accident, Francesco Schettino, is on trial for manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning the ship before all the passengers had been evacuated. Costa has since set up a fleet operation center to constantly monitor all ships from its headquarters, where employees can compare the planned route with the ships actual location. And the company has replaced its previous captain-runs-the-helm practice with more teambased approaches.Little more than a year after the Concordia wreck, fire disabled the Carnival Triumph and brought a new worry to potential cruise travelers: The prospect of being stuck at sea for days without power or working toilets. No one was injured in the blaze that disabled the Triumphs power, but the incident drew weeks of negative news coverage.The disaster prompted Carnival Corp. to announce an investment of almost $700 million across its 10 brands to improve fire-safety infrastructure, operating redundancy and backup power. Carnival Cruise Lines alone accounts for more than $300 million in fixes. Mark Jackson, Carnival Cruise Lines vice president of technical operations, said additional diesel generators designed to provide emergency backup power will be installed on all 24 ships by the end of January. More fire-suppression systems will be in place by the end of this year.Actions come after bad year for industryBy HANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.comTOURISM Business Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSA wreath is lowered Monday into the water near the shipwrecked Costa Concordia off the coast of the Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy. Survivors of the capsized ship commemorated the second anniversary of the grounding off Tuscany that killed 32 people with a candlelight march on the island and a moment of silence.

The Dolphins pulled off an unlikely comeback on their home field, scoring to erase a 3-2 deficit with just seconds left in regulation, and netting a sudden-death winner in overtime to capture a second straight District 16 title against Palmer Trinity School. The win came two days after a 16-0 drubbing of Riviera Prep School in the Dolphins district semifinal. It wasnt looking good for Marathon with about three minutes left in regulation. Palmers Sarah Medina a Division I recruit headed to Wake Forest University next year had just slipped her third goal of the game past goalie Sacha Olivera to give the Falcons a 3-2 lead. The Dolphins showed no quit, pressuring the Palmer defense in a last-ditch effort to tie the game. It appeared all was lost when a ball cleared out of the Palmer 18yard box area rolled out toward midfield. But Marathon defender Sydney Konrath saved theOT thriller gives Fins 2nd straight titleBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCoral Shores Highs girls soccer team nailed down by a spot in the Thursday regional playoffs by sweeping their first two games of the District 16-2A Tournament this week. Playing on their home field at Taverniers George M. Barley Jr. Stadium, the Lady Canes beat Carrollton, 2-1, in the district semifinal round Wednesday. That sent Coral Shores to Fridays district title match against defending champion Gulliver Prep (results pending at press time). Winner of the 16-2A title gets to host a home match in the Region 42A quarterfinals this week; the runner-up goes on the road. Coral Shores (11-4-1) staged a second-half comeback in Wednesdays 2-1 victory, scoring two late goals to eliminate Carrollton, second seed in the eight-team tournament. Coral Shores was seeded third, settled by a tiebreaker when three squads posted 52 district records in the regular season. After a scoreless first half, Carrolltons Cyclones scored the first goal of the district semifinal. Hurricane freshman forward AudreyLady Canes beat Carrollton, make regionalCaila DeAbreu and Angela Niles scored first-half goals, and the defense did the rest, as the Key West High girls soccer team defeated Doral Academy, 2-0, to win the District 16-3A tournament Thursday night on a cold windswept field at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.Its on to the state playoffs for the Conchs, who will host District 15-3A runnerup Archbishop McCarthy in a regional quarterfinal game at 5 p.m. next Thursday. McCarthy lost its title game to American Heritage Plantation, 4-0.We played solid, consistent ball all the way through, Key West coach Scott Paul said before his 15-8-1 team posed for photos with the championship trophy.Ten minutes into the first half, Doral keeper Isabella Arbelaez came too far out of the goal in an attempt to stop a charging DeAbreu. The Conch senior forward beat Arbelaez to the ball, got past her and kicked in an easy shot from the right side. Five minutes later, Niles, a freshman and the teams leading scorer, connected from in front of the net for a 2-0 lead.

Lady Dolphins are now 13-3The Marathon High School girls basketball team cruised Tuesday to its second victory this season over Greater Miami Academy. The Dolphins didnt turn in as dominant a performance against the Warriors as they did on Dec. 10, but they easily won, 56-38. Marathon coach Deanna Klaus said the girls were sluggish at the outset and continued to let Greater Miami hang around until the second half. We did not start off very well, but played well during the first five minutes of the third quarter to take a good lead, she said. The Dolphins led by just two points after the first quarter, 8-6, and 24-13 at the half. The lead grew to 13 by the end of the third quarter, 36-Two more games are left in the regular seasonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON GIRLS HOOPSConchs close to the playoffsThe Key West High boys soccer team, under first-year coach Marc Pierre, is a victory away from making the state playoffs. The Conchs host Miami Jackson in the District 163A semifinals at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. A win ensures the Conchs a spot in the regionals and would send them to Miami on Thursday for the district title game, likely against Doral Academy, the districts regular-season champion.Jackson will not be a pushover. In the regular season, the teams played a scoreless tie at Key West, and the Conchs won, 1-0, at Jackson.Key West took a 9-5-5 record into Friday nights regular-season finale at Coral Springs Charter, a contest completed too late to be included in todays paper. The Conchs were coming off a 1-1 tie Monday against St. Brendan in Miami, a game that Pierre said shouldnt have been a tie.Key West, which had a 1-0 lead on a goal by freshman Brian Coward, appeared to go up 2-0 later in the first half when Coward, after taking a long cross, beat the Sabres keeper on a breakaway. The goal, however, was nullified by an offside call.It wasnt offside, Pierre said. The refereeing was completely one-sided. They were calling fouls on us that werent fouls, and we were getting kicked and shoved. Our players couldnt even ask them questions. When I asked them what my players did, they wouldnt answer, so I kept my mouth shut. In the second half, St. Brendan tied the game on an own goal when, after a free kick, the Conchs Donte Thompson inadvertently headed the ball over keeper Christian Lee and into the goal. The Conchs played without starters Justin Mock, Spencer Hamilton and Jack Behmke, who were ill. Coward came close to scoring again late in the second half. He could have had three goals he played a beautiful game, Pierre said. Because the St. Brendan field doesnt have lights, the game ended in darkness, just after a last Key West scoring attempt failed when Simon Dayer headed an Adam Swiecicki corner kick over the goal.Miami Jackson is all that stands in wayBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BOYS SOCCERSee Basketball, 2BSee Dolphins, 2BSee Conchs, 2BSee Hurricanes, 2B
Arbelaez stopped her in front of the net. The second half was a physical battle that saw few scoring opportunities. Conch keeper Angela Martin made two saves late in the game. Just after the final whistle, Paul ran out and embraced sweeper Selyne Casas, who had lived up to her reputation as a defensive workhorse. Asked to name his players of the game, Paul, who could have named any of his seniors DeAbreu, Martin, Maudia Azard, Marella Barroso or Libby Isherwood, all of whom were honored before the game chose sophomore Gaby Pozzi and junior Olivia Kennedy. Olivia was tremendous in the middle, he said. After emerging from the locker room, Pozzi said, Our heads were in the game. We talked and passed so much better, and our defense was strong.Next Thursday, the Conchs will try to clear a huge hurdle. It will be their sixth home regional quarterfinal game since 2006. The previous five, from 2006-10, all ended in tear-stained losses.For Scott Paul, five is enough.

She made a move and came clear, scored the game winner and moments later was mobbed by teammates and classmates in celebration. Rodamer put the Dolphins on top 1-0 at the 29:57 mark of the first half off a through ball from midfield. She had a long breakaway, easily juked the Palmer goalie and scored on a wide-open goal.Palmer responded just four minutes later, as Medina scored the first of her three goals. She made a nice move on a defender and beat goalie Samantha Bonilla top right.Medina gave the Falcons a 2-1 lead at the 12:25 mark of the first half, this time beating Bonilla to the low left side of the net.Play was back and forth in the first half, though Marathon appeared to win the possession battle. In the second half it was no contest; the Dolphins dominated possession but couldnt capitalize on scoring chances.But co-captain Brandi Spalten came through with a nice play to tie the game at 2-2 with 21:48 remaining. She fielded a pass, quickly turned and fired a shot high into the top right corner of the goal.The Dolphins were the clear aggressors the rest of the way, but werent able to take the lead (until the gamewinner).

The Lady Patriots and the Lady Canes exchanged early scores, both off penalty kicks early in the first half. Center midfielder Ellie Leopold booted a penalty kick for Coral Shores.The Hurricane offense dominated the field and kept the ball in front of the Lady Patriots net for most of the match. Missed shots by Canes and stellar play by two Patriot goalies kept the game knotted.Reckwerdt scored the winner, going up the middle through Florida Christian defenders to deliver a hard and high kick that found the back of the net even after a partial deflection by the Florida Christian keeper. Kelly Cassidy and Kat Hamer anchored the Canes defense that limited Floridas shots on goal, where keeper Pookie delPino turned in another solid game. Reckwerdt scores game winnerFrom Hurricanes 1B23, and the Dolphins expanded it to 18 by games end.On Dec. 10, leading scorer JohnNisha Qualls set a school record with 44 points against the Warriors, but it was Gardine Raymond leading the way this time around with 20 points.

Freeman said the Dolphins did a good job running the fast break and scoring easy transition baskets against the Warriors man-toman defense. He said most of Chavezs three-pointers came in transition. Chavez had five rebounds to go with his 24 points, while Rojas added 20 points, 12 rebounds and four steals. Cooper Chaplin had 11 points with seven rebounds, and Jonathan Guerra had nine points and seven assists with just one turnover. Senior Jonathan Rios scored his first-ever varsity basket.

Everybody seems enraptured by seven-layer dip. And not that its bad, but its been done. And done again. And again. So for this years Super Bowl party, why not freshen it up a bit? Take the same concept of shoveling piles of delicious toppings into your mouth, but instead of chips use a slab of roasted potato. To create our seven-layer potato skins, we started with some of the traditional toppings for potato skins bacon, scallions and cheese. From there, we added crumbled sausage (more pig!), a garlicky sour cream and caramelized onions. OK, so theyre more like overstuffed, almost twice-baked potatoes. But with party food this delicious, who cares? The ingredients:Eight medium potatoes.Two tablespoons vegetable oil, divided.Two large yellow onions, diced.Salt and ground black pepper.Eight ounces loose sausage meat, cooked and crumbled.Half a cup sour cream,Two cloves garlic, minced,Eight slices cooked bacon, crumbled,One cup shredded cheddar cheese.Two scallions, sliced.Heat the oven to 400. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then coat with cooking spray.Poke the potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on high until tender, 10 to 12 minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave. Allow to cool until easily handled.Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium, heat one tablespoon of the oil. Add the onions and cook until softened and browned, 15 to 18 minutes. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half. Scoop out and reserve the insides, leaving a quarter-inchthick wall of potato flesh on the skin. Arrange the halves skin sides down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the potatoes with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and black pepper, then bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until crisped and browned.Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir together the reserved potato flesh and the sausage. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and garlic. Set aside. Once the potato skins have baked, start layering them. Spoon a bit of the caramelized onions into the bottom of each shell. Top with the sausage-potato mixture. This should mostly fill the shell. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the potatoes, followed by cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes. Top with a dollop of the garlic sour cream and sprinkle with the scallions. Serve immediately.

But the truth is, I dont consider any of my loves to be secrets.If I love something, I am proud to eat it, no matter how trashy or elegant it is. If I was ashamed to eat it, I wouldnt eat it. Which is why in this day of aspirational organic, local, vegan, sustainable, nose-totail eating, I think a little honesty about what tastes good and satisfies the soul is important. And thats why Im sharing my No. 1 pick for great Super Bowl party food, a trashy, delicious little recipe for sausage meatballs I got from my Aunt Mert. I made them twice this Thanksgiving for a tony northern crowd, and I served them right alongside smoked salmon and caviar. The sausage balls were scarfed up while the more sophisticated offerings were ignored. They are spicy, savory, salty and full of protein, so they are the perfect pairing for the beer that typically flows on Super Bowl Sunday! The simplest southern sausage meatball recipe is three ingredients bulk hot breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese and Bisquick. They are so simple that even someone who cant boil water can make them. All you need is a bowl and a fork (or clean hands) to mix everything together and a baking sheet to cook them on.If you dont like spicy foods, you can leave out the cayenne, but I think it helps balance the richness of the meatballs. I also use the sharpest cheddar that I can buy and prefer to grate the cheese myself because it seems to melt better. If you prefer Italian flavors, you can adapt the recipe and use bulk hot Italian sausage and substitute half a cup of grated Parmesan or Romano cheese for a quarter pound of the cheddar.You can prep this recipe in advance. Follow through the step of forming the meat mixture into balls, then arrange them on a baking sheet and freeze. Once frozen, store in plastic bags. Cook frozen meatballs as directed, but increase oven time to 35 minutes. What you need:Two cups all-purpose flour.One tablespoon baking powder.Half a teaspoon salt.One tablespoon melted butter.Half a teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic.Quarter teaspoon cayenne pepper.One pound grated sharp cheddar cheese.One pound loose spicy sausage meat.Two eggs. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, butter, garlic and cayenne. Set aside. In a second large bowl, use your hands to mix together the cheese, sausage and eggs until well combined. Add the flour mixture and mix for several minutes to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed. Pinch off about a quarter cup of the mixture and roll into 1.5-inch meatballs. Arrange the meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve hot. Start to finish: 40 minutes (15 minutes active). Makes 36 meatballs.

Saturday, January 18, 2014 5B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com When writers, drinking collideOne August evening in 1973, Raymond Carver heard a knock on the door of his faculty apartment at the famed Iowa Writers Workshop in Iowa City. Standing in the threshold was an older man, holding an empty glass. Pardon me, the man said, Im John Cheever. Could I borrow some scotch? Carver was right to immediately sense a dual intersection of interests. The two writers would spend a wasted year (both the year wasted and themselves) as drinking buddies, getting almost no work done but each adding a chapter to their long, sad stories of alcohol abuse. Critic Olivia Laings new book, The Trip to Echo Spring: On Writers and Drinking is an Englishwomans attempt to understand the legendary and ruinous drinking habits of six American men: Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams both longtime Key Westers F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Berryman, Cheever and Carver, all titans of American literary misery who also knew their way around a cocktail shaker. She weaves focused and finely interconnected sections of biography with the story of her own road-andrail trip across America, during which she comes to grips with the role that alcohol played in her troubled upbringing. The cover of the book depicts a lovingly photographed finger of bourbon sitting next to a typewriter, from which a page of text unspools upward like the smoke from the cigarette that rests in a nearby ashtray, but this is not an ode to the image of manly stoicism or romantic self-destruction. Laing shows us visceral debasements of all stripes: Hemingway as a sodden shade of his famous image, Cheevers embarrassing attempts to hold on to his WASP-ish superiority while in Alcoholics Anonymous, Berryman drunkenly falling down over and over, bruising and breaking bones, leading up to his final, intentional fall, from the Washington Avenue bridge in Minneapolis. The title comes from a line in Williamsplay Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, when the character Brick is asked where he is going and replies Im takina little short trip to Echo Spring. Laing explains: Physically, Echo Springis nothing more than a nickname for a liquor cabinet, drawn from the brand of bourbon it contains. Symbolically, though, it refers to something quite different: Perhaps the attainment of silence, or to the obliteration of troubled thoughts that comes, temporarily at least, with a sufficiency of booze. Thankfully, Laing avoids the common impulse of the reading public to consider writers as supernatural beings and instead delves into their pasts and their bodies of work with the goal of demythologizing, of proving their humanity instead of their mystery. We see that if indeed these men drank to dull some sort of hypersensitivity to existence, then that sensitivity sprang from prosaic formative traumas common in the biographies of many millions of alcoholics, few of whom were famous writers. All these men were haunted ceaselessly by the specters of their own parentsbattles with alcoholism and suicide. In a letter to his mother during one of his unsuccessful attempts at institutionalized recovery, Berryman listed his lingering questions with pitiable precision: Did I hear daddy threaten to swim out w me (or Bob?) or drown us both? Or did you tell me later? When? When did I first learn that hed killed himself? How did I seem to take his death when first told? Cheever frequently related a story from his youth that he at least pretended to consider comical: Pulling his drunken father down by the arm off the ledge from which he was threatening to leap, the young man pleaded, Daddy, you shouldnt do this to me, not in my formative years. Laings prose displays sensitivity toward alcohols corrosion of character and its bifurcating effects on the ego, that elevates the book from a work of biography to one of wrenching humanity: Thats what alcoholism does to a writer. You begin with alchemy, hard labor, and end by letting some grandiose degenerate, some awful aspect of yourself, take up residence at the hearth, the central fire, where they set to ripping out the heart of the work youve yet to finish. Whether the alcohol was an essential component of the magnificent work of these men debate that at your leisure these lives are for the most part tragedies. Laings book is a reminder of a piece of advice that young writers dont hear often enough: When choosing idols, avoid those who destroyed themselves.Nicholas Mancusi is a writer in New York.

Theodore, who is in a deep depression but doesnt realize it, is getting ready to finalize his divorce with his wife (Rooney Mara), who was once vibrant and happy and lively but over the years has grown resentful and sullen and accuses her husband of pulling away from her emotionally.Theodore is befuddled he clearly still loves her but hes the sort of person who can only share so much of himself before pulling away. At work, where he writes beautiful letters to strangers wishing them happy birthdays and anniversaries, hes capable of being expressive and eloquent and thoughtful.People, though, give him trouble.When a new operating system hits the market promising a sentient artificial intelligence that will grow and learn with time, he buys one. Her name is Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), and at first shes everything Theodore needs.They talk via a small earpiece, and shes always there to listen and comfort him, make him laugh. They can even go out on dates using a little camera that lets Samantha see everything Theodore sees. There are no secrets between them Samantha can read his emails and contacts and as their relationship deepens, so does her intelligence. You helped me discover my ability to want, Samantha tells him. Eventually inevitably sex enters the picture.Her was written and directed by Spike Jonze, who specializes in taking high-concept premises (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are) and turning them into thoughtful meditations on human relationships.Her depicts a future L.A. as a clean and gleaming city filled with smooth surfaces and bright colors (Theodore is fond of wearing high-waisted pants and orange shirts). But people walk around connected to devices (think next-gen cell phones) that keep them alienated from each other its an empty paradise. When Theodores friend (Amy Adams) sets him up on a blind date (Olivia Wilde), the results are disastrous. Its much easier for him to drop any facades and come home to Samantha, who is always there and understands him better than anyone. Eventually, though, as Samantha grows and matures; she, too, has needs.Her shares a lot of themes with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, another story about the difficulty of moving on from relationships that once seemed destined to last forever, and Phoenix, in a restrained performance radically different from his volcanic turn in The Master, conveys Theodores inner loneliness and yearning with a remarkable subtlety. His eyes say what he cant.Jonze often frames Theodore in wide open spaces (even his apartment dwarfs him), and although the story sounds like science fiction, the technological trappings are just window dressing. I think anybody who falls in love is a freak, Adams says at one point. Its a kind of socially acceptable insanity.Her argues that sometimes, crazy can be wonderful.Or is it? Film explores theme of lonelinessBy RENE RODRIGUEZrrodriguez@MiamiHerald.comMOVIE REVIEW Her, 126 minutes, rated R, playing in Key West. Joaquin Phoenix is in love with his computer operating system in Her.Little can save Saving Mr. BanksSaving Mr. Banks is two movies crammed into one cumbersome, overlong drama. The good half is set in Burbank in 1961, when Walt Disney (Tom Hanks), after 20 years of requests, finally gets author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to travel from London and visit the studio to consider signing over the film rights to her beloved Mary Poppins book series. Travers is fiercely protective of the novels and has great disdain for the Disney brand of entertainment (These books dont lend themselves to chirping and prancing, she huffs at him). But Travers is also broke and suffering from writers block, so she agrees to consider Disneys proposal, under certain conditions: She will be involved in the writing of the screenplay, she will have final say over every detail of the film and most important of all, the movie will have no animated characters whatsoever. Thompson plays Travers as a stuffy, unhappy woman who is irritated by everything and everyone (It smells like chlorine and sweat, she says of Los Angeles when she steps out of the airport). Her crusty demeanor, along with the inspiration for her Mary Poppins books, are revealed via constant flashbacks to her past, when as a child (Annie Rose Buckley) she moved to the Australian outback and watched her banker father (Colin Farrell) slowly drink himself to death.Director John Lee Hancock (The Alamo, The Blind Side) shoots Travers childhood in golden, sleepinducing hues and drenched with bathos that is at odds with the inherent darkness of what Travers suffered. There are also way too many of them, constantly interrupting the fun of watching Travers collaborate with the screenwriter (Bradley Whitford) and composers (B.J. Novak and Jason Schwartzman) trying their best to please this unpleasable woman.Hanks plays Disney like a saintly father figure he tells Travers he has chased after her for so long because he promised his daughters hed turn their favorite book into a movie and there are so few facets to him, the movie borders on hagiography (when Disney takes a reluctant Travers to a visit to Disneyland, the film also becomes an advertisement for its distributor). I wish Thompson would have had a little more fun with her portrayal of Travers theres no humor in her flintiness, no sass to her constant dissatisfaction. When she pitches a fit at the proposal of casting Dick Van Dyke in the lead, what should have been amusing comes off as annoying (imagine what Meryl Streep might have done with the role).But Thompson does manage to make Travers into a fascinating person a woman who refuses to compromise, even if it means losing everything, and doesnt care whom she offends in the process.Predictably, by films end, Travers icy heart will have melted a little (Paul Giamatti plays the chauffeur who gradually gets past her defenses) and the film, of course, became a huge success cartoon penguins and all.But outside of hardcore Mary Poppins fans who will relish the behind-the-scenes look at how the movies famous songs were composed and the characters designed, most people will come away from Saving Mr. Banks feeling like they just sat through a feature-length ad for the magic of Walt Disney, with Travers life tacked on as an afterthought.When alls said, its a Disney ad wrapped in filmBy RENE RODRIGUEZrrodriguez@MiamiHerald.comMOVIE REVIEWTom Hanks plays Walt Disney and Emma Thompson plays Mary Poppins creator.

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 10B Saturday, January 18, 2014 Fishing the Florida Keys we can find beautiful blue waters with ferocious fighters such as dolphin, sailfish, marlin, kingfish, and wahoo, or anchor just off the reefs for bottom huggers such as grouper and snapper. Our fleet of deep sea fishing boats can accommodate groups of up to six people.Tarpon Creek Marina | MM 53.5 firstname.lastname@example.org 305.289.1332 As strange as it sounds, there is a thing called the January full wolf moon. Its named mainly for wolf packs just outside Indian villages howling at the moon in hunger, and is also referred to as the old moon. That happened Jan. 15 and caused some serious chaos with the Florida Keys rendition of a wolf wahoo. Also known as the smallest moon of the year, the January full moon packed a huge wahoo punch. During the winter, wahoo congregate around deep Keys underwater structures, and during the four days before the full moon and four days after it, wahoo simply go nuts. Following are some of the reports I received during the week from spearfisherman, charter captains and recreational anglers from Key Largo to Key West. Key West commercial free-diving spearfishermen and shark divers Niko Gazzale, Ben Shepardson and Jared Mickelson were able to shoot five wahoo from 21 to 61 pounds on a super-secret spot that, when revealed, required a promise of complete secrecy by me to Nikko. He planned to take another ride out to the wahoo patch, so confidentiality was paramount. Capt. A.J. Hally out of Little Torch Key joined friends Stephen Wilbarger and Ryan Shapiro for a day of free diving for the striped speedsters. Each of the spearfisherman was able to connect with a prized mackerel. Theres nothing quite like the thrill of flying through the blue water in a superman pose towed by a lightning-fast wahoo surrounded by sharks. Even in that scenario, the activity is better for young adults than video games, in my opinion, or Fantasy Fest for that matter. Capt. Jay Miller and his mate Corey Robinson on the Outer Limits out of Key West found a 53-pound beast along with a few others from 20 to 40 pounds. The Outer Limits knows that January always means wahoo. Capt. Gene Chrzanowski on the High Class Hooker also out of Key West has been able to catch wahoo for his morning clients and his afternoon clients this week. Fishing multiple days of double halves generally means limited trolling action. Not the case for the High Class Hooker ; there were wahoo on both trips multiple times during this moon phase. Kiri Johnson out of Robbies in Islamorada sent a shot of a solid wahoo caught on the charter vessel Conetagious with Capt. Brian Cone at the helm, proving that the small moon of January is potent for wahoo throughout the Keys, including Islamorada. Recreational fisherman Carl Russell out of Marathon found a 45-found wahoo three days before the peak of the full wolf moon. The Middle Keys also joined the wahoo party. Recreational fisherman Mike Hill caught a 40-pound wahoo out of Key West in 220 feet of water at the beginning of the January full moon cycle during a heavy rain period as a front moved through. Erratic barometric pressure along with a full moon increases wahoo activity even more. The full wolf moon of January was the time to be on the water looking for wahoo. Then again, theres always next year, right? Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters in Key West.Actually, the enthusiasm was from the wahooMarlin Scott On TheWaterQuick Fact:During the winter, wahoo congregate around deep Keys underwater structures, and during the four days before the full moon and four days after it, wahoo simply go nuts. Anglers howl at the moon Mike Hill (above) shows a 40-pound wahoo he landed off Key West. Carl Russell (left) landed this nice 45-pound wahoo caught offshore of Marathon.
