Operation Blue Pride introduces wounded veterans to scuba diving as part of their rehabilitation and recovery. Former U.S. Army Sgt. Chris Maddeford, who was severely injured by a bomb during his Middle East tours, started the organization. Yes, it is cold but could be worseJanuary temperatures that often dipped below the Florida Keys average got 2014 started on a chilly note.But this January is no where close to the record-setting cold of January 2010, according to the National Weather Service in Key West.In January 2010, global weather pushed arctic air south into the Keys for weeks on end, causing extensive fish kills, several manatee deaths and a rare cold-water coral bleaching event. Fishermen found dozens of sea turtles floating or otherwise lethargic and brought them to land, where they overflowed at Marathons Turtle Hospital.It was like there was a big wheel and the spokes kept rotating to hit us for eight to 10 weeks, recalled NWS Senior Forecaster Alan Albanese. Now were talking about 10 days of cold weather and people think the Ice Age has arrived. But it has been cold in recent weeks, seeing days with high and low temperatures about 8 degrees cooler than the average.The average January temperatures at the NWS office in Key West typically are 74 degrees for the high and 65 degrees for the overnight low.Several days recently have dropped into the mid50s overnight, with highs that never got out of the 60s. Four years ago, January temperatures never got out of the 60s for 15 days, and the lows were in the 50s for 15 days. That followed a cold December 2009, Albanese said. By contrast, we had a very warm December 2013, and weve already had six days this month where it hit 80 degrees. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission has not received any reports of cold-related fish kills this month.In 2010, water temperatures in Florida Bay sank into the 40s, catastrophic for species like snook and grouper accustomed to subtropical climates. Reports of canal water into 30 degrees were reported four years ago.Right now the average Florida Bay temperature is 63 degrees, Albanese said Thursday. Its 74 degrees at Molasses Reef off Key Largo.

There seems to be a spike in the number of the sea birds found that are dangerously underfed.Were getting triple the amount we usually see, said Amanda Margraves, rehabilitator and hospital manager at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier. Its unusual and pretty disturbing.The reason remains a mystery, but Margraves and some fishermen think it may have to do with lack of baitfish in Florida Bay. The food source just isnt there, Margrave said.Backcountry guides who make their living fishing the bay agree there are increasingly fewer baitfish like pilchards and mullet, but some say this is not a new trend.It seemed to reach a point where it happened kind of quick, said Capt. Bob Fernicola, owner of Key Largo Fishing Charters. But thats been the status quo for about 10 years. Capt.

Rick Scott plans to include $130 million for Everglades and South Florida waterway projects in his 2014-15 budget proposal that will be released this coming week.While the request will include funding for a number of previously announced projects, the total is $60 million more than what Florida is now spending on the Everglades.More important for Scott, he wants to make sure that President Obama is aware of what Florida may be spending.I hope the federal government will do the right thing and continue to provide the funding we need, Scott said Wednesday. Scotts proposal includes $40 million for construction of a reservoir along the C-44 canal that receives water out of Lake Okeechobee, $30 million to bridge a 2.6-mile section of the Tamiami Trail, and $32 million that was part of an $880 million long-term Everglades restoration plan negotiated with the federal government last year. The proposal comes a day after Scott announced he would recommend $55 million to restore and maintain the states natural springs, boosting money for the water bodies in Central and North Florida by $45 million from the current year. Scott is expected to release a full budget proposal Wednesday.Scotts water proposals will compete during the legislative session with a $220 million Senate package for South and Central Florida that includes the C-44 work, a Kissimmee River project and the Tamiami Trail bridge.Charles Pattison is president of 1000 Friends of Florida and a former Monroe County planning director who was the primary author of the countys first land-used plan.He said hes encouraged by the recent proposals from Scott, who was criticized after taking office for his environmental actions, such as signing into law growthmanagement changes that largely eliminated state oversight of local planning decisions and lessened concurrency regulations that required adequate roads and infrastructure before newPlan includes 2nd bridge on Tamiami TrailBy JIM TURNER News Service of FloridaOUR ENVIRONMENTSee Cold, 3ASee Waterways, 2ASee Puto, 2A See Pelicans, 3A

FWC to ease charterboat rulesA rule change will allow charterboat captains and crews to keep some snapper and grouper caught under recreational bag limits in the Atlantic Ocean beginning Monday. The revision ends a ban that prohibited charter crews from keeping snapper and grouper regulated by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council.There are basically two fishing groups, commercial and recreational, Islamorada offshore captain Steve Leopold said. Its a positive that the council now agrees that we should be considered recreational rather than commercial, which we arent.State rules could be changed Feb. 13 when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission considers whether to match the new federal rule. Passage is expected under multiagency guidelines intended to align fishing regulations.The [no-take] rule was adopted as part of the effort to protect gag grouper and vermilion snapper, FWC spokeswoman Amanda Nalley said Friday. However, it has not been proving to be as effective as anticipated.The South Atlantic Council changed the charterboat rule in December, with a Jan. 27 effective date. Consistency makes fishing regulations easier for everybody to understand, Leopold said, so consistency is a good thing. The FWC meets Feb. 12 and 13 in Tampa. Other Florida Keys items on the state agencys February agenda:A final hearing to consider adopting a daily commercial trip limit and a daily vessel limit of 200 sea cucumbers. Floridas recreational collectors of sea cucumbers are subject to a daily trip limit, but there is currently no commercial bag limit. The Florida Sea Cucum ber Corp. opened a processing facility on Ramrod Key last year.A Key Largo lionfish tournament may change the way the FWC provides exceptions to state rules. The Key Largo Lionfish Derby in 2013 received special permission through an executive order to allow spearfishing for lionfish in waters normally closed to spearing.A proposed change would allow the agency to issue a special harvest permit, usually for removing invasive species, that would allow actions that otherwise would be illegal.Captains would be able to keep snapper, grouperThe Key West City Commission will take another look at amending a law regulating newspaper racks on city streets and sidewalks after giving an initial version of it the OK Wednesday night.The city, through an annual lottery, gives out 930 licenses annually for news racks.Among the possible changes is a requirement for rack owners to remove them from public property when a hurricane watch is issued. The current rule has a hurricane warning as the threshold.According to the National Hurricane Center, a hurricane watch is issued for a coastal area when there is a threat of hurricane conditions within 24 to 36 hours. A warning is issued when hurricane conditions are expected in a specified coastal area in 24 hours or less.Hurricane conditions include winds of 74 mph and/or dangerously high tides and waves. The proposed amended ordinance, sponsored by Commissioner Tony Yaniz, calls for racks to be removed within five hours of when a watch is issued.The Keynoter Publishing Co., part of the Miami Herald Media Co., has about 100 racks in the Southernmost City. Rack removal is undertaken by staff out of the Heralds Doral headquarters.We think the watch status is a little too cautious, Keynoter Publisher Richard Tamborrino said. But its the five-hour window that we really think is untenable.Tamborrino said it could take up to five hours alone to assemble a crew and get it from the mainland to Key West. City Code Compliance Director Jim Young said that hes compiling feedback on the amended law and he will pass the information on to Yaniz prior to a second reading, expected Feb. 4 at a meeting beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall. Attorney Robert Cintron, speaking on behalf of the Key West Citizen, suggested doing away with the whole pick-up requirement and instead just coming up with a regulation for weighting the racks down.Although Monroe County doesnt having a similar rule on the book, Keynoter Circulation Director Carter Townshend said, Using responsible business practices, we would either lay the machines down on the ground or remove them, if circumstances dictated. Young also pointed out a loophole through which a newspaper company can be awarded spaces through the lottery for one of its publications other than the main newspaper, but fills the space with its primary publication.The amended ordinance specifically requires the publication awarded a spot be filled with that particular publication.

Its going to take real political skills to get that kind of money from the Legislature and maintain that on a many-year basis, Pattison added. Dan Kimball, supervisor of Everglades National Park who is retiring at the end of March, assured Scott during Wednesdays Cabinet meeting that the federal government will match Floridas three-year, $30-million-a-year funding for the bridge estimated at $170 million to $210 million out of the park service road fund. The work is intended to elevate part of a 10-mile stretch of the road in Miami-Dade County that since 1928 has been a buffer to the natural flow of water between Lake Okeechobee and the southern Everglades. A first bridge to help do so was completed last year. A second bridge could start to go up by the end of the year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had proposed an 11-mile bridge in 2005, but Congress allocated just enough money to lift one mile of road.Second Tamiami bridge fast-tracked?From Waterways, 1A leaving after four years. He thanked the current and former councils for letting him work for this great city. Putos title will be assistant city manager until Hernstadts resignation becomes official Jan. 30. The city charter does not allow there to be an acting manager while a manager is still in place. The council is expected to finalize Putos contract at its Tuesday meeting at the Marathon Government Center. He could earn as much as $10,000 monthly and, according to the council, would not be considered for the permanent job.Puto planned to spend Thursday catching up on city business with Hernstadt. Its going to be a good transition. He should do very well in Marco Island, Puto said. Were excited about, under councils direction, moving forward with the projects we have going on.Four headhunter firms to help the city conduct its search for a new manager are expected to pitch their services to the council at its Tuesday meeting.Puto beat out four other applicants for the interim job:Former Deputy City Manager C.J. Geotis, whose position was eliminated when former Clyde Burnett took over when Puto resigned in 2008.Sarah Dolson, a retired special-education teacher living on Big Pine Key.Kieran May, a former New Jersey State Police commander living on Long Key.Hector Rivera of Palm Bay, a former Cape Coral assistant city manager and adjunct college professor.Before Wednesdays vote, Councilwoman Ginger Snead said Puto and I have a love/hate relationship. She said she feels he is qualified, but his hesitancy to embrace the use of computers especially for communication and travel except for when driving is a shortcoming. Still, she joined her colleagues in appointing Puto. Puto and Geotis addressed the council pitching their qualifications. The other three applicants were not at the meeting Wednesday.Former manager back in saddleFrom Puto, 1A DOT plans upgradesThe state Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting on Tuesday to get input from Middle Keys residents on the agencys planned five-month work between 17th Street and 37th Street.

The exercises involved a team of Navy SEALs visiting from Naval Special Warfare Group 2 in Virginia storming the beach at NAS Truman Annex on Tuesday, then south of Boca Chica Field in the Lower Keys on Wednesday. It involved firing blanks while they were out over the water, then they came ashore, Denny said. It was hard to share what they were doing without giving it up and having people come see, she said. The gunfire sounds scared some residents in the neighborhood[s] and we quickly put out via social media and through the city what was happening. That was not enough notice, she said.

The Marathon City Council is scheduled to consider proposals Tuesday from four headhunting firms vying to recruit a replacement for departing City Manager Roger Hernstadt.Hernstadt accepted the city manager job with the city of Marco Island on Jan. 13 and is scheduled to begin there on Feb. 3. The council on Wednesday appointed former manager Mike Puto to replace Hernstadt on an interim basis. He was the citys top administrator from 2005 to 2008.The four firms and their projected fee for a search:Bob Murray & Associates.The Tallahassee-based firms proposal states that the professional fee for conducting this recruitment on behalf of the City of Marathon is $16,500, plus actual expenses.The proposal says expenses are estimated to not exceed $7,500 and include items such consultant travel; clerical support; placement of ads; credit, criminal and civil checks; education verification; and newspaper searches.Colin Baenziger & Associates. The Daytona Beach Shores-based firm has previously worked for Marathon, Islamorada, Key West and Monroe County for administrator searches. Its proposal says it offers a firm, fixed fee of $19,000 for all of costs associated with travel, needs analysis, recruiting, expenses, preliminary screenings, interview coordination and continuing assistance. In addition, the firm charges $750 per finalist [for a] complete background check, depending on how many candidates the city decides to interview.The Mercer Group, Inc. Its a Seminole, Fla.-based firm offering a total fee, including all expenses, for the [search] as a fixed amount of 15,750.Slavin Management Consultants. A Norcross, Ga.,-based firm whose proposal states that we use a flat fee rate schedule. Slavins total cost estimate is $13,825. The council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.The council is expected to discuss contract language for the next city manager, as well as consider a resolution finalizing an agreement with Puto.Puto could earn as much as $10,000 per month as interim manager is not expected to be eligible for the permanent position. Council members have said they feel allowing the interim manager to apply would lead other qualified applicants to believe that person has an advantage securing the full-time job.

Find us online at Keys InfoNet.comsaid hes been able to find enough baitfish for his clients, but the fish are being found in isolated areas. Theres not a lot of bait around, so I can see how maybe it is a struggle for the pelicans, he said. It is also possible that the number of underfed pelicans may have to do with more migratory birds being in South Florida this winter.Joanna Fitzgerald, director of Naples Sharon and Dolph von Arx Wildlife Hospital at the Conservancy of Florida, called the difference between the number of migratory birds in the area between this season and last staggering.The number of pelicans we are seeing is dramatically different from previous years, Fitzgerald said. While the von Arx hospital isnt necessarily treating pelicans for malnutrition alone, like the Florida Keys Wild Bird Sanctuary is, scores more birds are being cared for at the facility than last year. Most of these are injuries due to fishing line and hooks because the birds gravitate toward Naples fishing pier, Fitzgerald said.In December 2012, the von Arx treated four pelicans. That number jumped to 72 this December. Likewise, the hospital saw three pelicans last January. The month has a week left and already von Arx staff members have treated 50 pelicans, Fitzgerald said.In the Keys, Margraves said the Wild Bird Center hospital has treated more than 30 pelicans since the beginning of January. This time last year, the number was about five or six.When the birds arrive at the hospital, at mile marker 94 across U.S. 1 from the Wild Bird Center at mile marker 93.6, Margraves puts them under heat lamps and gives them a liquid diet, as well as vitamins B, A, E and D.The hospital then has pens outside for the birds that are getting better. The last step is for the pelicans to stay at the Wild Bird Center before being released. Although pelicans are large birds, they are relatively light typically weighing between 4 and 6 pounds.The ones coming into the bird center hospital are as light as 2 pounds, Margraves said.Theyre just bones with no meat, she said. Increase seen in starving pelicansFrom Pelicans, 1A levels only when there are extended periods of heavy cloud cover, he noted. Its still cold enough to keep people out of the water, said Marlene Swadain, booking agent for Spirit Snorkeling in Marathon. The winter is the slower season for us but usually we can get out for at least a few days, Swadain said. Were not even getting that. Were not enjoying it. Current forecasts call for slightly below-average temperatures this weekend with a warming through midweek. But it may cool down again for a spell after that. Today is expected to hit a high of 70 in the Middle Keys and a low of 64 overnight. In 1989, early January was unusually cold with a one-day low of 45 degrees. Then the jet stream reoriented Jan. 16 and it was like throwing a switch, Albanese said.

As the Key West City Commission continues to reprioritize components of the Truman Waterfront development master plan, officials with Naval Air Station Key West have expressed mounting frustration.The U.S. Navy deeded the 33-acre Old Town parcel to the city in 2002 as an economic development conveyance. The plan for the park, which sits next to NAS Truman Annex and the Navys Outer Mole Pier, needs review from local Navy officials, with particular emphasis on security and other operational concerns. At its Wednesday meeting, commissioners voted to spend $170,000 to rehab what was installed five years ago as a temporary soccer field, although the larger plan for the waterfront calls for another permanent multi-use field elsewhere. That drew a rebuke from NAS Key West Executive Director Ron Demes, who said the military wasnt given consideration to give official input. This field has been on again, off again, he said. I thought we were heading toward this new multiuse field. Its more likely to be a permanent facility rather than temporary, he continued. I believe we should be given the courtesy of a review. Commissioners also approved spending more than $300,000 to build a parking lot along Fort Street in Bahama Village, which is adjacent to the temporary field. Demes asked that the vote be postponed because it also hadnt been reviewed by the Navy. To go forward with this procedurally, I just question it, he said. Thats not the way I would suggest we do business. City Attorney Shawn Smith told commissioners not to let the Navy position color their action.That is not a requirement of the conveyance documents, Smith said of Navy input. If youre going to do a development in that area, yes, there are certain requirements. Dont not vote for it because of what [Demes] said. I want to make sure your vote with respect to that item is not colored by Mr. Demes statement.We really do need to improve the communications along these lines, Demes said. We just cannot continue to not communicate effectively.

King Hussein of Jordan visits the Little White House in Key West on April 13, 1972, as a guest of U.S. Navy Rear Adm. John H. Mauer. The Little White House, so named because it was the winter escape of President Truman, has hosted numerous dignitaries in the past, including former presidents Carter and Clinton, and then-President Kennedy. From April 2 to 6, 2001, Secretary of State Colin Powell opened peace talks there between the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan. Hussein was the second Arab leader to recognize Israels right to exist, following Anwar Sadat of Egypt.Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALSeven/50 looks to S.

Kurt Wagner Key WestNot a good neighborId like to thank reporter Ryan McCarthy for acknowledging the Discount Rock and Sand debris-issue appeal in the Jan. 8 Keynoter. But the piece omitted essential details. Allow me to present the facts that prompt a large number of our community to oppose building this transfer station.Opposed to the facility are the Stirrup Key Homeowners Association, Stirrup Key Condominium Association and other residents in the neighborhood of Discount Rock and Sands property. We are the people whose lives have been disrupted by their operation. We are the ones forced to live with debris, pollution, noise and deplorable conditions allowed to manifest in their current facility.These concerns were expressed when the Planning Commission met initially. Property owner Eddie Lopez deteriorating property conditions, despite presenting photos that proved otherwise.Several neighbors at the hearing reported thunderous noise beginning shortly after 6 a.m. seven days a week. Yet he asserts employees do not clock in until 7:15; we apparently cannot tell time.Those at the hearing may recall my PowerPoint presentation. It showed photos of the conditions weve lived with these past few years fencing crumbled by the weight of debris piles that spilled into the mangroves, the tree line that previously stood along the property boundary succumbed to the weight of those same piles. Cleanup is under way on the site in preparation for the new construction. Why would someone who cares about our environment not have done this years ago rather than hinging his action on obtaining a controversial permit? Were told debris will be removed from the site within seven days. A current rock pile visible from Aviation Boulevard, nearly 40 feet high, has been there since September. Even if it were removed more timely, how long would it remain on a job site before a contractor disposes of it at the transfer station? How long does it take rats and other varmint to make a new home? And where will the critters scurry to when the debris is eventually removed? Were assured the state will watch a facility of this type closely to prevent the type of problems Discount Rock and Sand has already created. But they do not have adequate personnel to properly do so.If our code is not yet specifically defined in this area, this provides an opportunity to judge based on what is morally right rather than legally. If that means contractors have to drive to Layton to dispose of construction debris, so be it.Valeri Kolessar MarathonBad-faith bargainingI have had the unpleasant experience of attending the last two bargaining sessions between the United Teachers of Monroe and the School District. Let me tell you, it was most disheartening. But more than that, it was sad. I wish the School Board could have been there to see the way district negotiator Bob Norton treated the bargaining team. That was to me outrageous. Why in the name of glory does the School Board find it necessary to pay a Miami attorney something like $300 an hour to rake our teachers over the coals?Every day, hard-working teachers and school administrators come to school, put forth more than a paramount effort to educate the future citizens of Monroe County and beyond. Then when it comes time for a realistic contract, bargained in good faith, the original administrative bargaining team, after 26 unsuccessful meetings, hires a total outsider that does not care about our students, teachers, administrators or school-related personnel.Since when do the citizens of Monroe County need advice from Miami-Dade County to address Monroe County issues? I am truly baffled and more than disappointed that as our School District struggles financially, there are suddenly unlimited resources to pay Mr. Norton.Mary Maxwell Key WestBroad coalition of counties, others can bring concrete results to problems we faceIn the next 50 years some 3 million people will move to Southeast Florida, joining the 6 million already here. So what will the region look like in 2060? Will coastal cities see a big decline in tourism because their beaches disappeared under water from the rising sea level? Will one of the regions economic drivers agriculture shrink as open land is converted to more suburbs to accommodate population growth? Not if a forward-thinking consortium of public officials, urban planners and civic and business leaders called Seven/50 has anything to say about it. The consortium started asking the relevant questions three years ago to determine how best to guide the regions growth through 2060. Seven/50 stands for seven counties Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, Indian River and St. Lucie making up a super region. Guided by the South Florida and Treasure Coast regional planning councils and with a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the group developed an intriguing blueprint to shape the regions future, moving it toward economic prosperity while maintaining residents quality of life. The blueprint (at www.seven50report.org) pushes for coordination among leaders in the seven counties to build more mass-transit corridors, redevelop livable infill communities around urban transit hubs that encourage walking and cycling and improving high-tech infrastructure networks to lure growth of healthcare, biomedical and other industries. And the blueprint tackles the threat of rising sea levels from climate change head-on, calling for more-specific mapping of potential inundation of coastal cities to help them prepare by expanding beaches, building higher seawalls, developing up instead of out and designing engineering projects to keep seawater out of sewage systems and drinking-water supplies. The blueprint is big on regional cooperation instead of competition between counties. This cooperation would include creating a regional business coalition to promote the region, much like the Beacon Council now promotes Miami-Dade, and expand the regional economy beyond its three powerhouses: Tourism, real-estate development and agriculture. Such a coalition could bring new lobbying clout in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. With that in mind, its a shame that the Indian River and St. Lucie county commissions opted out of the Seven/50 plan at the noisy behest of tea-party activists who think it is a federal conspiracy to take over local control. Fortunately, cities and school boards in the two counties are still on board with the Seven/50 blueprint, which offers a great vision for the regions future. Now comes the hard part, of course, making the vision a reality. Miami HeraldBoard splits on fieldDespite a conflicting recommendation from an advisory board, the Key West City Commission on Wednesday voted 4-2 to spend $170,000 to fix a temporary soccer field at the Truman Waterfront. The Truman Waterfront Advisory Board met Tuesday and unanimously voted to recommend to the commission that it proceed with building the new multi-use field and not this field, board Chairman Robert Cintron told commissioners. Commissioner Tony Yaniz is pushing the temporary fix although the master development plan for the 33acre parcel already includes a new permanent multi-use field adjacent to the Outer Mole Pier access road. With approval of the commission (commissioners Teri Johnston and Jimmy Weekley dissented while Mayor Craig Cates was absent), fixing up the existing field takes priority over the long-standing plan. Robert Cintron, a member of the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board, urged the City Commission to keep our focus on what we decided before, which is putting ... infrastructure such as roads and utilities before anything else. Those funds could be used, $170,000 or so, more productively, he said. I really think what we need to do is get this done, Yaniz said. If we move forward with this tonight, it puts us a lot closer to having a field for our children to play in.Parking lotAlso Wednesday, the commission awarded a $347,924 contract to Douglas N. Higgins for construction of a parking lot on Fort Street between the Truman Waterfront property and residential Bahama Village. The plan is for 46 vehicles spaces (including two spaces compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act), 14 scooter spaces, landscaping and lighting. During discussion, the commission directed city staff to bring back a resolution defining the use of the parking lot as free for residents of Bahama Village who display passes or stickers but for a fee to visitors. City watchdog Christine Russell, imploring commissioners not to pave paradise, said the cost seems excessive.Vote is 4-2 to spend $170K at waterfrontBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTNavy calls out cityDemes: Military needs more input into projectsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST

Gov. Rick Scott is proposing to wrap Floridas popular back-to-school sales-tax holiday around two weekends more than triple its current length as part of his re-election year proposal to cut taxes and fees by $500 million.Scott said he wants lawmakers to approve a 10-day tax holiday in August. The extended tax-free period is the latest of the budget proposals Scott has rolled out in advance of the 2014 legislative session. The legislative session starts March 4. Weve done this before but this is a 10-day one, so its longer, Scott said, adding the extended holiday would reduce state revenue by an estimated $60 million. During the holiday, shoppers would not have to pay state and local sales taxes on select clothing under $100, school items such as pens and notebooks that cost less than $15, and computers and related electronic equipment costing less than $750.The back-to-school tax holiday has ranged from three to nine days since lawmakers introduced it in 1998. The discount wasnt provided during the recession in 2008 and 2009, and has been set at three days the past four years.With a budget surplus of about $1 billion and an election on the horizon, Scott is seeking about $500 million in tax and fee reductions, the bulk of which would come from rolling back a hike in vehicle registration fees approved by the GOP-dominated Legislature in 2009.Business groups quickly praised Scotts latest proposal.John Fleming, a spokes man for the Florida Retail Federation, said his group wants the tax-free time to become permanent instead of requiring legislative approval every year.Shoppers often use the savings to make additional purchases that are not covered by the exemption, which helps cover any slowdown that can occur until the tax exemption begins, Fleming said.There might some shifting of spending, but it really does increase sales overall, he said.The retail federation also supports a hurricane holiday measure (SB 362) that would lift sales tax on select storm-related gear at the beginning of hurricane season, and Agriculture Com missioner Adam Putnams proposed tax break on Energy Star appliances that cost under $1,500.Energy Star is a federal designation that rates appliances based on their green makeup and electricity savings.

On Jan. 14, FEMA published a notice in the Federal Register that its long-running pilot inspection program is officially terminated. It ended on June 28, 2013, but was memorialized in the announcement. The main concern with the program was that it made property owners in FEMAs National Flood Insurance Program subject to enclosure inspections when pulling any type of building permit for the property. Enclosure inspections were a local requirement of FEMAs program to find and remove enclosures below the floodplain or built illegally. They were essential to the county remaining in the NFIP, which insures almost all Keys properties. That provision was eliminated largely thanks to the efforts of attorney John November, a former Lower Keys resident who drafted a 2011 bill that led to it being repealed by the state Legislature.He was instrumental in the state law that was passed that disallows using a permit on a location to require inspection of another part of the house. The state passed the bill that outlined that was no longer allowed, which forced Monroe County to eliminate the requirement that be done when people apply for permit, county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley said.In May 2012, the Monroe County Commission approved a law that replaced the inspection upon permit provision with a certificate of compliance program ultimately approved by FEMA that November.Now any buyer knows whats allowed to be in the downstairs, Hurley said.

Commissioners responded to questionnaires detailing specifics of Vitas and Smiths performances, with a five being the best and one the worst. Vitas received an overall average of 3.52, with his highest mark, 4.07, coming in the personal traits category. His lowest score, 2.86, was in the quantity/quality, which speaks to amount of work performed; meets deadlines; accuracy; and thoroughness, according to the evaluation form. Vitas earns $180,000 per year and was hired in 2012 under a three-year contract. Smith received an overall average score of 4.47 and was graded based on a similar form as that used for Vitas. He earned the highest mark, 4.69, in City Com mission and boards relationship. His lowest score, 4.29, was in litigation/adminis trative proceedings. Smith earns about $182,000 per year and was hired in 2006. The commission OKd the job reviews Wednesday night. Also that night, Vitas said he plans to implement a more thorough system of evaluating all employees, with the first step being training later this month for city department heads and managers in how to administer evaluations.KEY WEST KEYS CIRCUS CAMEL Sure, Key West is known for its invasive animals like the gypsy chickens and pesky iguanas, but camels and a miniature horse?

Column, 3BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Lady Dolphins push forwardA first-half hat trick from Savannah Rodamer and another two goals from Chandler Elliott helped the Marathon High School girls soccer team cruise to an easy 7-2 win over Dade Christian School in Thursdays opening-round state playoffs. The Dolphins (13-6-4) thoroughly outplayed the Crusaders in the opening 40 minutes, dominating time of possession and generating numerous scoring opportunities. It was enough to build a comfortable 6-1 lead by the half. Coach Cindy Durkin said she expected a much tougher game from the District 151A runner-up. Dade Christian lost its championship game to Miami Country Day in overtime, a team the Dolphins played to a 1-1 tie on Jan. 10. I was expecting it to be a lot fiercer competition, Durkin said. But Durkin noted that some advance scouting revealed a weakness she felt the girls could exploit.We scouted them up at Dade Christian and we knew that hole existed between the sweeper and the defensive line and if we could just slot the ball through and penetrate that line, Savannah and Chandler working together [would] have some success, she said.I didnt expect to have this much success, but well take it, she added. The girls did just that, time and again working through balls and crossing passes inside the Dade Christian 18-yard box. Rodamer started the scoring early, fielding a short pass from the top of the 18yard box, juking a defender and scoring on a point-blank left-footed shot at the 35:19 mark to make it 1-0.Jackie Clairmont made a great move to lose a defender from the left side of the 18yard box and put a crossing ball to Rodamer for another goal at the 30:35 mark.Just 45 seconds later, Regan Durkin used her long-range accuracy to put a ball high over the Dade Christian goalies head from around 35 yards out and make it 3-0 Marathon.At the 19:02 mark, Brandi Spalten put a slot pass to Rodamer, who crossed the ball to Elliott for her firstPalmers next after Marathon beats Dade Christian in openerBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON GIRLS SOCCERKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathons Savannah Rodamer chases down a long through ball pass from teammate Chandler Elliott during the Dolphins 7-2 regional quarterfinal victory over Dade Christian School Thursday.

The last 10 minutes were very, very tense, Bosque said. We played too well through the first 70 minutes to let it get away.

She lined a hard and high shot past the keeper for a 7-1 lead.After that, Dade Christian largely held the Marathon offense in check. The And Dolphins defense remained strong, allowing the second goal with less than two minutes remaining in regulation.When youre ahead by a good solid lead, you sometimes pull up, but everything we asked them to do they did tonight. The team did extremely well, coach Durkin said.Durkin added that Rodamer, Spalten, Elliott and Regan Durkin did well to implement the Dolphins offensive game plan. The four of them worked really well together. We talked about a lot of give-and-go and combination play and they executed well, she said. The Dolphins are scheduled to take on a familiar foe Tuesday, when District 16 runner-up Palmer Trinity School visits Marathon for the second time in less than two weeks. Marathon handily defeated the Falcons, 6-2, in a Nov. 15 regular-season game in Miami, but the Falcons, behind standout Sarah Medina, put a scare in the Dolphins in the Jan. 16 district championship match.The Dolphins won, 4-3, but only after Sydney Konrath scored a miraculous 30-yard goal with seconds remaining to tie the game at 3-3. Elliott scored the sudden-death winner in overtime.Durkin said coaches would review that game tape to see what the team might do differently with Medina, who scored all three Palmer goals.Clearly, she is their offensive threat, so if you isolate her you can have some success, she said. If we played the way we played [Thursday], we wouldnt have been in the come from behind, sudden-death victory situation against Palmer. The regional semifinal against Palmer is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday, January 25, 2014 Notice is hereby given:Jazquline Smith Kentrell Freeman Ronald Jenkins 5600 Laurel Ave, Lot 36500 Maloney Ave #15-A1661 Overseas Hwy Key West, Fl 33040 Key West, Fl 33040 Marathon, Fl 33050 Joey Osborne Michelle Hall Ryan Groom 829 Emma St 531 Avenue D #D1 76 Avenue B Key West, Fl 33040 Key West, Fl 33040 Key Largo, Fl 33037 Daniil Salangin William Beagle Holly Oswalt P.O.

Led by aggressive sweeper Selyne Casas, with considerable help from Gaby Pozzi and Tatum Flowers, the Conchs were, out of necessity, stellar on defense. They are scrappy and well-coached, McCarthy coach Mike Sica said of the Conchs. We knew if we didnt work hard, theyd get us. They played just as hard as we did in the first half, but we had a lot more attack options. The Conchs had only two shots on goal, the second just before the end of the game. It wasnt successful, but the effort pleased Paul, who said, We took a run at them, finally. It was the sixth time since 2006 that the Conchs lost a home regional quarterfinal game.Despite title, Lady Conchs doneFrom Lady Conchs, 1B Photo by BERT BUDDEFans applaud as Key Wests Brian Coward gets hoisted by his teammates after scoring late in Tuesday nights game against Miami Jackson.

In that game, Spencer Hamilton scored in the first half on a long shot from the left sideline after the Jackson keeper misplayed a shot that kept the Key West attack alive. Then in the last minute of a well-played defensive battle, Brian Coward scored after taking a pass from Hamilton. That shot left the Generals sitting on the field in despair.

Proceeds go to the Saltys and marina workers, and musicians who no longer can play there. Start here for 3 tasty mealsIts a familiar kitchen economy strategy: Roast a chicken (or buy a rotisserie bird at the supermarket) and turn it into three meals.Not as familiar is following that same approach with another meat, and the best of these, in our thinking, is a pork roast, specifically the shoulder, with its rich texture.Often called a Boston butt or butt roast, a pork shoulder roast can be bought boneless or bone-in. They can be quite large (8 pounds) or small (2 pounds). We like a 6-pound bone-in roast. It fits into a large Dutch oven for browning and yields plenty of meat for several meals.Here we take a pork shoulder, roast it, then break it down into three meals, each designed to feed a family of four. Our 6-pound roast yielded just under 4.5 pounds of cooked meat.For the first night, we served slices of pork shoulder and figured everyone might want more than a standard 4ounce serving. That still left plenty for subsequent nights.You can go many ways, of course. A pasta dish, a Cuban sandwich, pulled pork. We picked a stir-fry, tacos and, finally, a soup that utilized the reserved bone for a broth and required less of the pork than the other meals.A bonus is that after the first meal, the cooking and assembly of the other dishes is quick another economy we love.Day 1Roast pork shoulder. Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix together in a small bowl 1.5 teaspoons kosher salt, one teaspoon freshly ground pepper and one teaspoon toasted and ground cumin seeds. Rub all over one large bone-in pork shoulder roast (about 6 pounds), pressing the seasonings into the meat. Heat two tablespoons canola oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the pork; brown on all sides. Transfer the pork to a rack inside a roasting pan just large enough to hold it. Pour 1 quart water into pan. Roast until very tender, two to three hours. (Add more water to the pan if it becomes dry near the end of the cooking time.) Remove the roast from the oven; allow to rest, covered, about 20 minutes. Cut slices for dinner; serve with vegetables and starch of your choice. After dinner, pull the remaining pork into shreds or cut into thick slices. Portion the pork into three sealable containers for the next three nights, saving the bone for broth. Refrigerate.Day 2Pork and bok choy stir fry.Stir a quarter cup hoisin sauce and one tablespoon soy sauce together in a small bowl; set aside. Heat two tablespoons vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over mediumhigh heat; add two minced garlic cloves and two teaspoons minced or grated fresh ginger. Stir-fry 20 seconds. Add two medium heads bok choy cut in 1-inch pieces; stir-fry until beginning to soften. Reduce heat to low. Add the hoisin-soy mixture and 1 pound cooked pork, sliced in thin strips (about three cups). Simmer just until heated through; squeeze half an orange over the stir-fry. Serve over cooked brown or white rice garnished with plenty of fresh cilantro, if you like.Day 3Pork and roasted squash tacos. Warm two cups shredded pork in a little chicken or vegetable broth until heated through. Warm eight corn or flour tortillas on a griddle or in a cast-iron skillet. Build the tacos with shredded Chihuahua cheese, shredded pork, cubes of roasted butternut squash, toasted pepitas and pickled onions or very thin raw onion slices. Top with crumbled queso fresco and a little tomatillo salsa.By JOE GRAY and CINDY DAMPIERChicago TribuneTHE DINING TABLE

Advance purchase tickets for the Marathon concert are available at the Marathon branches of Centennial Bank, and for the Islamorada concert at the Artamorada Gallery at the Rain Barrel in Islamorada or Key Largo Art Gallery. Yes prowess was evident early in her career, in contests where she was often the youngest contestant. At age 7, she made her Carnegie Hall debut as a first-place winner of the Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition. Then at age 9, she took home eight medals (four gold) at the 2007 U.S. Open Music Competition, competing against pianists up to 18 years old. The next year, as winner of the Chamber Music Society of Oregon Concerto Competition, Ye made her orchestra debut with the Oregon Sinfonietta playing the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24. She was also named the Chamber Music Northwest Young Artist Fellow for 2008-09. She became the youngest person to win Oregons MetroArts Young Artists Competition in 2009, at age 11.

One Race, which opened Jan. 17, is part of an exchange between Havana and Key West under which several prominent Cuban artists will exhibit on the Florida island next month. This exhibit is about the human race: Old, young, black and white, all genders, all sexes, said curator Nance Frank, owner of the Gallery on Green in Key West. Its about equality. People working together and playing together and having fun together. Sanchez, born in 1908, was the descendent of a Cuban family that came to Key West in the 19th Century as part of a community of emigres who backed the islands independence movement. He died in 2005. Those early immigrants traditions heavily influenced Sanchez, Frank said. The colorful painted woodcuts on display in Havana through March 23 show men dancing and workers rolling tobacco as well as neighbors chatting and strolling through early 20th Century Key West. One work also shows the Key West home on Whitehead where Ernest Hemingway lived in the 1930s. It is a vision of the Cubans who lived on the other side of the [Florida] Straits. Key West had a large Cuban population, said Moraima Clavijo, director of the museum. Clavijo added that news accounts from the time indicate Sanchez exhibited on the island in the 1950s but today, He is an artist entirely unfamiliar to us. Exhibits by U.S. artists are rare in Cuba, but in 2009 a collective show from New York titled Chelsea Visits Havana went to the Caribbean capital. Organizers said Sanchezs work embodies the historical ties between two nations, before Fidel Castros 1959 revolution sharply divided the community. We had to cross this enormous 90-mile divide, which is so much wider than it should be, said David Goode, one of the private collectors who contributed to the exposition. I hope this is one way that art can continue its historical tradition of bringing people together. About a dozen Cubans will make up the second part of the exchange in Florida in February, including Manuel Mendive, Roberto Fabelo, Rocio Garcia, Sandra Ramos and several young artists. New paths need to be opened, and art is a phenomenon that can do so, said Reynerio Tamayo, whose work is to go on display in the former Hemingway home.Cuba artists to come to Keys in exchangeARTBy ANDREA RODRIGUEZAssociated Press A man looks at art by Mario Sanchez, a deceased Key West artist of Cuban descent, inside the Havana museum.

In February, a group of artists from Cuba is expected in Key West to exhibit their works.This Ridecan be a little rockyRide Along, rated R, 100 minutes, playing in Key West and Tavernier. Kevin Harts mouth is t he sole reason for the exist ence of the by-the-numbers b uddy comedy Ride A long, which rises and falls on the strength of his chattery comic delivery. Unfortunately, theres m ore falling than rising, t hough thats not all Harts fault. Hes undoubtedly a funny guy, but he cant quite carry an entire feature film. Hes better in smaller doses (watch his hilarious p erformance in the ensemb le comedy Think Like a M an and see if you dont agree). In Ride Along, his schtick gets more camera t ime, and it wears thin m uch less quickly than you might think. But its the only foundation propping up the movie, which is delivered with all the subtlety of a motorcycle crashing through a plateglass window or a truck flying through the flames of an explosion (both of these things actually happen in the films opening sequence, but you are welcome to pick any of the other action movie cliches herein to illustrate my point). Hart plays school security guard Ben, a gamer who has decided to translate his skills at shooting digital bad guys in Fallujah to a paying job. He has been accepted at the police academy in Atlanta and hopes to become a cop and then propose to his live-in girlfriend Angela (Tika Sumpter, in the traditionally thankless role). The problem? Her brother James (Ice Cube) is a detective a no-nonsense, bad team member, I-dontplay-by-the-rules sort of detective, if you can imagine such a thing and he doesnt approve of Ben, who badly wants his blessing. James has no intention of bestowing it and hits on a perfect way to punish Ben and maybe even make him rethink his choice of career: Invite him along for a day on the job, set up several scenarios that will make Ben look like an idiot and hope he shuts up once and for all. Ben doesnt shut up, of course, and theres some fun to be had watching Hart try to solve every problem on the street by jabbering at it. Watching him attempt to fire a shotgun at a shooting range is amusing, too, even though you know exactly what will happen. But the film also sets up a dull, convoluted plot about James trying to solve a case involving Serbians and arms dealing and a mysterious criminal mastermind named Omar who has plans to take over the city (or something), which undermines the breezy tone in which Hart operates best. Thus Ride Along sabotages itself, although I suppose that doesnt really matter there are already plans in the works for Ride Along 2. But trust me, you want to proceed with caution.Comedy tries too hard for its own goodMOVIE REVIEW By CONNIE OGLEcogle@MiamiHerald.com Photo courtesy IMDBIce Cube and Kevin Hart play it for laughs in Ride Along,but the film, while amusing at times, is a large mess.
