MARATHONRaw sewage causes complexs evictionsMore than 40 Marathon residents were abruptly evicted from an 18-unit apartment building in Marathon this past weekend after local officials discovered standing raw sewage on the property.According to a Feb. 25 Florida Department of Health letter posted on each unit at 1665 Overseas Highway oceanside at 5 p.m. Friday, there is standing raw sewage throughout the property from a failed septic system, as well as standing sewage beneath the building.The sewage presents an imminent threat to public health, and needs to be cleaned appropriately with lime, says the letter, signed by environmental specialist Dustin McCabe.Another letter from Glenn Straub, president of the Palm Beach County building owner Marina Funding Group, says residents are required to vacate the premises by no later than Sunday, March 2, 2014 at 5 p.m. Thats just 48 hours notice.The run-down apartment building is adjacent to the Trailerama mobile-home park40 residents suddenly told they must leaveBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKeynoter photos by RYAN McCARTHYStanding raw sewage reportedly was found at this 18-unit Old Town Marathon apartment complex on Feb. 23. By Friday, the state Department of Health issued notices to vacate within 48 hours, citing an imminent threat to public health. More than 40 residents are being displaced. Cat Cole and husband Gus Rojas are two of more than 40 Marathon residents evicted abruptly from an 18-unit Old Town Marathon apartment complex this past weekend due to standing raw sewage on the property.See Sewage, 2A A battle over sunken tugWhat began in January as one mans whim to buy a 150ton tugboat for $8,000 is poised to end with a combination of taxpayer-funded agencies footing the six-figure bill to haul the 81-foot Tilly out of water off Key West, where it sank and remains.Stephen Freer, 66, said his goal was to start a marine cooperative and take the Tilly to Cuba he had never owned or operated any sort of boat to escape the evil empire driven by greed and arrogance in the United States. Freer bought the boat off craigslist, then had it towed into the new Stock Island Village Marina, where he had reserved a slip for February, on Jan. 25. Marina managers started a formal eviction on Jan. 28, the day of the marinas grand opening. On Feb. 21, marina staff towed the Tilly out of the harbor, at which point the stories diverge. I understood we were going to the mooring field off Fleming Key, Freer said, but instead, he just dumped me in the channel about two miles off Fort ZacharyMarina evicted the owner, now salvage comesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key Wests Aids to Navigation Team has installed a lighted buoy on the wreck of the tugboat Tilly, which sunk in 35 feet of water about two miles off Key West.Photo courtesy U.S. Coast GuardSee Tug, 2ACuba-Key West flights resumeRegular air service between Key West and Havana, Cuba, quietly resumed on Friday after more than half a century without direct flights. Miami-based charter company Mambi Inter national Group is partnered with flight operators Air Marbrisa and Air Key West on the new service. Mambi spokesman Isaac Valdes said that following a first flight on Feb. 28, the next flight this Friday is already sold out. Beginning March 17, Mambi will offer the 30minute hop to Jose Marti International Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, departing Key West International Airport at 2:30 p.m. and returning at 4:15.The Monday and Wed nesday flights cost $479 roundtrip, with the Friday route going for $525, Valdes said.The process of designating Key West as an international point of entry began in 2009 with a request to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Sen. Dwight Bullard, a Democrat representing District 39, realizes his Senate Bill 1562 stands virtually no chance of passing in the Florida Legislatures session that opened Tuesday. Unfortunately, the state Legislature does not see or fully appreciate the obvious and hidden benefits of a bill like this, Bullard said in an e-mail Tuesday. None theless, Im hopeful that we can get one step closer to understanding the complexity of the issue. State Rep. Randolph Bracy (D-Orlando) has filed companion HB 1039 in the Florida House. Im not under the illusion that this would pass, Bracy told the Orlando Sentinel. But its more so to get a start to the conversation.Bullards 48-page bill proposes to ban marijuana possession by people under age 21, but allow possession of 2.5 ounces to others.

Snead resigned at the end of the Feb. 25 council meeting, not giving any specific reason. She was in the middle of her third consecutive two-year term and would have been term-limited out in November.Many of the potential replacements, such as former council members John Bartus and Marilyn Tempest, and previous council candidate Larry Shaffer, would be familiar to anyone whos followed the council over the years.Others, such as Kelly Electric owner Bill Kelly and Centennial Bank Business Development Officer Melissa Grady, are generally well-known but have not held public office. The council is not scheduled to discuss how it will replace Snead until its March 11 regular meeting.The most common methods are for each council member to put a name forward and appoint a replacement with at least a 3-1 vote, or take applications and choose from that pool. That person could run again in November and would have the right to make his or her own appointments to various city committees and commissions.But Vice Mayor Chris Bull has made it clear he wants a replacement who does not intend to run for election come November.

Taylor State Park. That was my first time on the water, he said. Freer was soon picked up a boat salvor. By Feb. 23, the Tilly was sitting on the ocean bottom in about 35 feet of water, with some of its superstructure exposed.Marina spokesman Robin Smith-Martin said we were trying to help him out. Our guys asked, Do you want us to help you get the boat out of here and he said yes. They towed him out somewhere west of the ships channel and he set his anchor. They asked him if he wanted a ride back to shore and he said no.Smith-Martin said the eviction is based on marina policy. Our policy is that you have to come in under your own power. He told us it was a motor yacht. During our grand-opening party, he made some signs asking people for money. He was subletting out some space to homeless people and thats in violation. It was kind of a nightmare. The Tilly didnt fit in with their rich, white color scheme, Freer said of the marina, adding that he sees two options: The marina can recover and repair his boat or hell take them to school with a media blitz.The recoveryU.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West spokesman Peter Bermont said the base got a report Feb. 21 that the Tilly was dragging anchor. On Feb. 23, the Coast Guard received a report from a mariner that they nearly [collided] with the Tilly because it was not displaying proper navigation lights.That prompted sector commander Capt. Al Young to issue whats called a captain of the port order directing Freer to ensure that your vessel is safely anchored outside the main ship channel and maintains proper navigation lights according to federal law.The Coast Guards Aids to Navigation Team has installed a red buoy with blinking lights on the wreck. An assessment team with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary snorkeled the Tilly Monday, according to sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton.We want it out of there, Morton said. It looks like it is dripping out a little bit of oil. Most fuel and oil was removed prior to it sinking but I think youre always going to have a little bit of something.The next step is for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to officially declare the vessel derelict, a process thats already under way, Morton said. From there, the FWC will work with us, the Coast Guard and Monroe County on a salvage plan.Monroe County Commis sioner George Neugent said this is an example of the countys reactive rather than proactive monitoring of derelict boats, on which the county spends around $250,000 per year removing from local waters.I think that any time you can manage a situation and its not to interfere with anyones right to public boating, its just a matter of enforcing existing rules and regulations. Now weve got a vessel on the bottom of the ocean that needs to be removed. I have a severe problem with spending public money on this, he said. He said hed put a discussion item on the County Commission agenda for its March 19 meeting at the Marathon Government Center.Morton and Neugent agreed the recovery cost would be several hundred thousand dollars. Neugent said hes consulting with county legal staff on any potential liability as it applies to Freer or the marina.Bermont summed up the Coast Guard position: A vessel on the water, whether its floating or submerged, is the responsibility of the owner. Freer said hes a victim of this rotten, evil money system.

Im getting more and more involved in things in Marathon, said Kelly, a recent Code Compliance Board appointment who said he has not given much thought to running for the council come November. If I do get picked, Ill make that decision down the road, he said. Im interested in the way the city is running. I dont think I could change anything in six months, but Id like to get an insight and see whats going on.Grady, who offered her services free of compensation in a Monday e-mail to the council, had a similar sentiment. She is a member of the citys Fire Fighter Pension Board.I really havent thought that far ahead if Id be interested in running or not, she said.It appears as though those with experience on the council are more willing to step in on a temporary basis. Several people have approached me. Failing to find anyone, I would be willing, but Im not seeking, Tempest said. Oh good grief, no. No, thank you, she said when asked if she would run for the seat in November. She said being a council member is a -7 kind of thing shes not interested in committing to long term.I would probably consider serving if the council wanted me there. Im really not interested in running again in November, Bartus said.Shaffer indicated likewise in his brief March 1 email to the council. I want to put my name in for the empty council seat. If selected, I would not run again when the term expires, he said.Jim Tashjian, who chairs the citys Planning Commis sion, said last week that he is interested in the position. But he wouldnt apply or accept appointment if not allowed to run again in November.Eric Myrmel, a 2014 candidate for council, reportedly was also interested in Sneads seat. Hes the only resident to declare to run in November; three seats on the five-member board will be open, those of Snead, Mayor Dick Ramsay (term-limited out) and Councilman Rich Keating.Interest grows in appointmentFrom Marathon, 1ANew England man critical after crashA visitor from New England remained in critical condition in Ryder Trauma Center in Miami this week after being struck by a car Friday night in Marathon. Wilbert Blodgett, 46, of South Thomaston, Maine, was injured around 5:55 p.m. when he rode into traffic at U.S. 1 and Sombrero Beach Road and struck a 2002 Chevy driven by Alan Davis, 70, of Marathon, says the Florida Highway Patrol. Troopers say Davis was driving north on U.S. 1 when Blodgett tried to cross the highway from the east shoulder, riding west. Blodgett rode against the pedestrian signal signs, says the FHP. After Blodgett rode into the Chevys path, the Chevys right front struck the left-side handlebar of Blodgetts bicycle. Blodgett ended up on the pavement, unconscious with head injuries. He was taken to Ryder via the TraumaStar air ambulance.

The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says that around 2:10 a.m. Sunday, the clerk at the Circle K store at mile marker 92 called the agency to say that the man wanted under the Silver Alert was in his store. Deputies arrived and confirmed it was Hastings.While being given food and drink by the clerk, Hastings was in good spirits, according to a report by Deputy Michael Claudy, and told Claudy he was tired and a little disoriented, and did not know where he was at. His 2005 Buick Lacrosse was in the stores lot.Claudy was able to contact Hastings son Tom in Kansas, and Tom made arrangements with Guys Towing to take both the elder Hastings and his Buick back to Port Lt.

The other, they say, stole money from donation jars for nonprofits. In the Boy Scout case, police are offering a $1,000 reward for the information leading to the arrest of a man who allegedly robbed the 12-year-old at gunpoint around 6:30 p.m. on Friday.The youth, who was selling coupon books for discounts to businesses door to door, told police a man pointed a black, semi-automatic gun at him and demanded money, according to police spokeswoman Alyson Crean.The robber got away with $40 and the coupon books, which were found by detectives near where the crime reportedly happened, at 18th Terrace and Northside Drive in New Town. Crean described the suspect as white, in his mid20s, around 6 feet tall with short, black hair and lightcolored eyes.His face was covered with a red and black bandana and he was wearing what the victim called a biker-styled vest over a dark red shirt and dark jeans. He may also have been wearing a class ring and a treasure coin around his neck, Crean said.Anyone with information can call Detective Matthew Haley at 809-1000 or Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys at (800) 346TIPS. Callers could be eligible for a cash reward if the tip leads to an arrest. In the other crime targeting local fundraising, on Feb. 26, police arrested William Ridge, 44, on felony theft charges after detectives identified him from surveillance footage.Ridge is accused of taking a donation jar from the counter of Circle K on Kennedy Drive on Feb. 10. Two days later, the UPS Store in Keys Plaza off North Roosevelt Boulevard reported two stolen donation jars.The collections were earmarked for the American Red Cross, Toys for Tots and 2-year-old Liam Reddy, whos battling cancer. Ridge was picked up near the Key West seaport. Hes being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island.Donation jars, Scouts money are targetedCRIME FRONTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comin Marathons Old Town. Bill Brookman, director of community health services for the Department of Health in Monroe County, said he saw the raw sewage underneath the apartment complex.The plumbing is really bad in the building. It leaks underneath the building and its a mess, he said. City Manager Mike Puto said he and other city officials fielded what was apparently an anonymous complaint on Feb. 23 about sewage on the property. We had a large sewage spill down the center of the street. They have three septic tanks and havent hooked up to the city system yet. We went down there and lo and behold, the fluid was there, he said.Straub said hes not interested in spending the money to connect to Marathons central sewer system and that the property would likely be torn down or sold within 90 days. He called it about the smallest holding his company has.Itll be sold in 90 days from now. Im not going to hold onto that thing. I just give people time to do their due diligence, he said. Gus Rojas and his wife, Cat Cole, have lived at the apartment building for around a year. He said hes been out of work battling a gout attack while Cat is more than eight months pregnant. Everybody was here [Sunday]; it was like a madhouse with people trying to get out of here, Rojas told the Keynoter Monday. It happened in less than a week. Rojas and Cole shared a two-bedroom apartment with Rojas 8-year-old son and Coles 3-year-old daughter. They said they have no place to go. Well probably have to go camp out at Knights Key until we can find a place, Rojas said. Rojas said he and Cole, along with three-year residents Antonio Comas and Mireya Bonachea, were the last remaining residents he said hes seen. Puto said the city did everything it could to help the displaced residents find a place to go. We called every agency in the world to help out. Where these people are go ing, I have no idea, but the owner and the Department of Health are taking care of the eviction side because its really bad, he said.Sewage results in evictionsFrom Sewage, 1A CALLCLASSIFIEDS743-5551

This bill not only does that but it frees up countless dollars wasted in man hours and resources used by law enforcement to pursue and detain petty marijuana offenders. In November, Florida voters will cast ballots on a proposed state constitutional amendment to allow medicinal marijuana. It needs to pass with at least 60 percent of the vote.Florida legislators are considering two other marijuana bills in the spring session separate from the ballot question. One would create a medicinal marijuana program; the other would allow a particular type of marijuana to be prescribed to children suffering severe conditions like epilepsy.The Florida chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws intends to focus on medicinal-marijuana proposals that have a chance of becoming reality this year, said Karen Goldstein, director of Florida-NORML.Our immediate concern is for the patients for whom medical marijuana is the best medicine, and there are a lot of them in Florida, Goldstein said. Florida-NORML supports wholeheartedly the medical-marijuana amendment, Goldstein said. Our concern is that the opposition will use legalization [bills] as ammunition to attack medical marijuana.

Dwight Bullard says those using marijuana for recreational purposes shouldnt be subject to arrest. City, county to sit down, talkWith an eye on a collaborative solution to homelessness in the Florida Keys, the Monroe County Commission and Key West City Com mission will meet for a joint session to address the issue on March 12 beginning at 2 p.m. in the Harvey Govern ment Center in Key West. The notion of the meeting has been kicked around since October and was put on the calendar Feb. 28 at the request of county Mayor Sylvia Murphy. City Mayor Craig Cates has led the charge to construct a 24-hour, seven-daysa-week homeless shelter to replace the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on College Road on Stock Island. Essential to that plan is property and financing despite the vast majority of the Keys homeless living in the Southernmost City. County Commissioner George Nuegent said the county has a responsibility to sit at the table and discuss the issue but were not going to throw a lot of money at it. He acknowledged the county incurs costs related to Key Wests homeless when theyre arrested and housed at the Monroe County Detention Center or provided with indigent medical care. The city spends around $450,000 each year to operate KOTS.Elected boards take up possible homeless fixesTHE HOMELESSKeynoter StaffCrackdown on nudity possibleKey Wests risque Fantasy Fest could be toned down if the City Commission opts to tweak local law regulating bodypainted breasts during the annual 10-day costume and masking street party that takes place in the latter part of October. Under current law, public nudity is prohibited although breasts covered with body paint are allowed in the so-called fantasy zone, which runs the length of Duval Street and covers all the cross streets between Whitehead and Simonton streets. Body paint also must be applied in an enclosed area and out of public view. Commissioner Jimmy Weekleys proposal changes the definition of nudity to mean: Body paint shall not be deemed to clothe or cover the body or be considered a fully opaque covering. Translation: Women need to wear pasties with their body paint. There arent any regulations that consider exposed male breast areas. Those Ive heard from all support it, Weekley said. The last couple of Fantasy Fests have been getting more and more raunchy. Weekleys amended ordinance went to the commission for the first of two required readings after press time on Tuesday. Harry Bethel, a former city commissioner, is among those leading the charge for cleaning up Fantasy Fest. He wrote in a March 1 email to the city commissioners, city manager and others: This is not who we are. If [revelers] would not do this in their hometown they should not be allowed to do it our hometown. Lets hope we can finally clean up the image for our city and our residents who do not wish to be exposed to all this nasty nudity. Bethel wrote that he had acquired gross and raunchy pictures from Fantasy Fest and sent them to a number of public officials and others. Jesus, when did we become the Puritans? former mayoral candidate Mike Mongo said on Facebook.Weekley says Fantasy Fest too raunchyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTBills would limit wetlands regulationsNew Florida legislative bills that seek to limit wetlands regulation have drawn fire from local and state conservation groups. House Bill 703 and companion bill Senate Bill 1464 primarily seek to protect agricultural lands from additional regulation and limit farm lands from being assessed for tax purposes as potential residential or commercial sites. However, the bills say local wetlands protections adopted after July 2003 could be neutered. This appalling anti-home rule legislation must be stopped, says an alert sent out by 1000 Friends of Florida, a land-protection group headed by Charles Pattison, a former Monroe County planning director. The bills would preempt, retroactively, local government authority to protect wetlands, springs and stormwater runoff if done through ordinances or rules adopted after July 1, 2003, according to 1000 Friends.This retroactive provision is unprecedented and would directly contradict the homerule authority given to local governments as part of their responsibilities under both the 1985 Growth Management Act and the 2011 Community Planning Act.Lisa Tennyson, the Monroe County legislative liaison, sent several proposed bills to county planning staff for view. HB 703 is among them. County staff has not fully reviewed the bill, said Assistant Planning Director Mayte Santamaria. Reef Relief, an ocean conservation group based in Monroe County, added a legislative alert to its website. The bill is a Christmas tree for special interests, says the alert. If the state keeps local governments from doing a better job than the state does, our waterways are going to die.Some legislators, says 1000 Friends are apparently determined to make sure that local governments arent allowed to make local decisions.... HB 703 and SB 1464 have some particularly egregious language that strips local home-rule authority related to comprehensive plans and environmental protection.The bills were being considered by legislative committees Tuesday, the opening day of the legislative session.Environmental groups sound a loud alarmOUR ENVIRONMENTBody found under bridgeThe circumstances surrounding the death of a Homestead man whose body was found Saturday in woods about 70 feet below the Jewfish Creek Bridge in North Key Largo remained a mystery Monday.Late Saturday morning, the roommate of Michael Schmidt, 42, called the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and told dispatchers he was traveling into Monroe County for work and saw Schmidts Jeep parked on the top of the bridge. He said he hadnt heard from him since Thursday.The Sheriffs Office said the roommate told investigators that Schmidt called him that day about 4 p.m. to ask him to let his dog out. He said hed not heard from Schmidt since that conversation.When found on the bridge by deputy E.B. Askins, the blue Jeep, in the northbound lane of the bridge, had a red tow notice on it from the Florida Highway Patrol dated Feb. 28.Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said the roommate and a friend responded to the bridge to pick up the Jeep so it wouldnt be towed (they had a key for it theyd gotten from Schmidts parents). It reportedly started right up and wasnt out of gas. Thats when the two looked over the bridge and saw the body about 70 feet below, and called the Sheriffs Office. Schmidts body was retrieved from the woods area with the help of officers from the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission and taken to the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office for identification.

Also, why is the state Department of Transportation being allowed to harass and coerce local businesses? Recently, many of us have been threatened by these beautification projects, with DOT stating they will tear up parking areas in front of our businesses to plant trees and shrubs. Around mile marker 100, theyre even planting dead grass. That dead sod isnt coming back, which is such a waste of taxpayer money. At whose directive are these projects being undertaken? The reality is that these are narrow islands with limited land, so many of our buildings and businesses were originally built near the railroad and now sit near or on the DOT right of way. Our customers use this right of way for parking and have done so for decades. We need this parking to survive. DOT is threatening many of us that we must either sign a lease with them or theyll dig up our parking areas to plant shrubbery. This seems like bribery or coercion. Can our county commissioners, local representatives, chambers of commerce or other business leaders please step in and stop this absurd and endless roadway beautification? The cones and constant roadwork create an ugly impression for our tourists and wreaks havoc on our businesses, and most of our citizens do not want it. Tanya Cleary Key LargoThanks for cleaner beachCheerful good-morning greetings rang out as Coco Plum residents and Dolphin Research Center volunteers cleared Coco Plum Beach on a recent Saturday morning. Navigating through trees, brambles and along the shore, Team Dolphin retrieved and sorted the flotsam and jetsam washed ashore by storms and tides. There were blue bags for recyclables and black bags for trash. The bags were piled removal by the city. The ocean sparkled, and children and pets splashed and played. Passing strangers smiled and nodded approval. What a very special place, said one lady. Thank you to Courtney, the Dolphin Research Center volunteers and Coco Plum neighbors. Com munity spirit shone brightly that morning on Coco Plum Beach. Yes, it was a beautiful moment. Lynda Berrigan MarathonBeach Runs a successA huge thank-you to the more than 100 volunteers who helped make Saturdays Sombrero Beach Run a success once again. Many people come back every year to help with traffic, set-up, registration and food. We could not have done it without them, And thank you too to all the sponsors who helped us raise a lot of money for Keys Area Interdenom inational Resources. The community support has been phenomenal, and we appreciate it. Penny Ludwin Volunteer coordinator MarathonPolice not above lawThe wheels of justice grind slowly. Rushing to judgment often brings about a self-fulfilled and inaccurate outcome. Bias and prejudice, along with a predetermined perspective of guilt and innocence, have wrongfully sentenced many people to death. Conditioned and inflamed mindsets frequently give way under the weight of emotional appeal. Charles Eimers died after being in the custody of the Key West Police His case deserves parallel and independent investigations. Requesting the Justice Department to generate its own investigation will further the due process interests regarding this tragedy. Key West is a small city. There is not the scope and separation to clear and liberate ones mind of the political influences and pressures to arrive at a particular outcome. Why combine familiarity, partisanship and homage into the mix of an already difficult investigation? Its not the wise or prudent action to take. Only after a valid, accurate and complete investigation is done will we be able to determine the how and why of Mr. Eimers death and, if appropriate, assign culpability. This investigation will be viewed by millions. It behooves the authors of said investigation to be spot on with everything they touch. Strong, bold and courageous leadership are required to supervise and train our heavily armed police departments. Flaccid and feeble political appointees are never up to the task. A competent leader will have his or her hands on the pulse of the department. He or she will know what is going on and in what direction the department is heading. He or she will know the personalities, temperaments and skills of their officers. For in the final analysis, they are responsible for the conduct of the men and women under their command. In these settings, negligence kills people. Rogue police officers have engaged in murderous conduct. Corrupt, weak and complicit leadership has opened the door for this type of insanity to take hold. Some state attorneys have been duplicitous in these crimes. These miscreants have desecrated and dishonored the names of those officers who gave their last full measure of devotion. John Donnelly Key Largo Editors note: Charles Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., died at Lower Keys Medical Center after being taken off life support on Dec. 4. Key West police had pulled him over on North Roosevelt Boulevard on Nov. 28 and, as police were handcuffing Eimers, he began turning blue, according to Officer Thaddeus Calvarts account. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating.Kids have fishing funOn Feb. 22, the Marathon Parks and Recreation Department held a fun fishing program at the newly upgraded oceanfront park behind City Hall. On hand were Acting City Manager Mike Puto and City Councilman Mark Senmartin. Also participating were more than 60 eager young fishermen between ages 3 and 10 and their parents/guardians. Many thanks go out to the individuals and organizations who helped make this event possible. First, a big thanks goes out to the Marathon chapter of the Organized Fishermen of Florida for donating cash to make this a free program. Another big thanks goes out to the Fish Florida Foundation (the group that sells license plates with a sailfish) for donating 100 fishing poles to give out to the participants. Another big thanks goes out to the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for sending officers Riesz and Munkelt to educate the children on how to measure fish, when you can keep a fish and other guidelines to safe fishing. A big thanks goes out to the volunteers who know a lot about fishing who showed up to rig poles, bait hooks, unhook fish, cast and teach all the young fishermen these skills. Thank you to Jim Martin, Rusty Riker, Tom Askman, Johnny Cantoni, Todd Render, Craig Kearns, Danny Aldridge, Martin Cummings and Hammer Runyon, as well as all of the skilled parents and friends who loaned a hand to their children as well as to other children who needed help. This was a community effort and a great time was had by all. Ali Adams MarathonSuccessful find of Port St. Lucie man shows statewide search system worksVery early Sunday morning, an 82-year-old Port St. Lucie man found himself far from home, and he didnt know why. But Donald Hastings ended up at the Circle K convenience store at mile marker 92, the latest elderly person to become confused on the road and keep on driving until out of gas, hungry or just curious. Fortunately, Hastings story had a happy ending when the store clerk saw on his lottery machine a Silver Alert for Hastings. The clerk called the Sheriffs Office. Deputies were able to contact Hastings son, who arranged a return trip home nearly 200 miles away to Port St. Lucie for his dad and his dads Buick. Hastings saga is just one in a long line of similar tales. But thanks to Floridas Silver Alert system, more often than not, they end with the elderly person returned home unharmed, albeit wondering how they wandered so far off course. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist signed an executive order on Oct. 8, 2008, enacting the Silver Alert, a statewide system based on the Amber Alert program for missing children. Its designed to get the publics help in locating a cognitively impaired driver [mostly the elderly] who has gotten lost. The state Legislature passed the Silver Alert program into law in 2011.Before Sunday, the Keys hadnt been the end of the road for a Silver Alert for awhile, but we do get our fair share. In fact, there was one period not so long ago during which it seemed we were getting inundated with them.Back in June 2011, a 77year-old man from Edgewater 400 miles away, near Daytona Beach was pulled over by a deputy at mile marker 12. He was disoriented and unaware of his location, according to a police report. A Silver Alert had previously been issued for him. He was taken to Lower Keys Medical Center to get checked, and his family was notified so they could come down and pick him up. The previous month, a 72-year-old man from Eustis, 375 miles away, was found on the south end of the Seven Mile Bridge. He told deputies he didnt know how he got here. He too was reunited with his family due to a Silver Alert. That same month, an 89-year-old woman from Naples was pulled over on Big Pine Key, some 200 miles from home. She also had no idea how she got here and was the subject of a Silver Alert. Last year, according to state statistics, 162 Silver Alerts were issued. Since the program began, as of the end of 2013, there had been 760.Silver Alerts work. When theyre issued after a member of the missing persons family calls police, theyre posted on roads with information about the car the missing person is driving, including the make, model, color and tag number. Theyre also on the lottery machines and elsewhere.If you see someone sought under a Silver Alert, immediately call the police. Theyll take care of the rest.

State: Gun ranges OKA letter from the Florida Attorney Generals Office basically informs Monroe County that state law means the county cannot ban backyard shooting ranges.The Feb. 24 letter from the office of Attorney General Pam Bondi concludes the clearly expressed legislative intent of existing Florida law is to say local governments have no authority to regulate in the area of firearms.The statement, authored by Senior Assistant Attorney General Gerry Hammond, actually was sent to the city of Sunrise in Broward County, which had asked many of the same questions raised by the Monroe County Commission.The Attorney Generals Office did not write a formal opinion to Sunrise since the law, Florida Statute 790.33, is in court and being defended by the state against a lawsuit from Palm Beach County.Before we could send in our request for an [Attorney Generals opinion], we received a copy of the response to the city of Sunrises request for an [opinion] on the same issue, said Monroe County attorney Bob Shillinger.State law says local governments cannot regulate most shooting on privately owned land, and that trying to do so could lead to elected officials being removed from office.While the Palm Beach lawsuit remains active in Leon County Circuit Court, the attorney general will not issue additional opinions, Shillinger said. The Attorney Generals Office attached a September 2011 opinion written to Santa Rosa County, which asked if the county could regulate the recreational discharge of firearms in residentially zoned areas.Bondis office responded: Santa Rosa County may not regulate the recreational discharge of firearms in residentially zoned areas as the regulation of firearms is preempted to the state under the law.To violate the law, shooters must be deemed to act in a reckless manner. Backyard shooting gained new statewide attention this winter when Big Pine Key landowner Doug Varrieur set up a shooting range on his Eden Pines subdivision property, where he holds target practice once a week. When residents complained, Shillinger cautioned county commissioners that under state law, Your hands are tied. While Verrieur set up a range with a solid backstop and limited hours, commissioners noted that apparently nothing can prevent other people from shooting at all hours in less-secure facilities.GUNS AND NEIGHBORHOODS$40K for jet-noise studyThe Monroe County Commission will spend $40,000 with consultant Keith and Schnars to conduct a study of jet noise surrounding Naval Air Station Key Wests Boca Chica Field.In 2013, the U.S. Navy released an environmental impact statement, approved in October by Dennis McGinn, assistant secretary of the Navy for energy, installations and environment, that allows increased flight and training operations out of Boca Chica Field.Also authorized is the gradual transition from F/A-18 C/D Hornet fighter jets to F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters. F/A-18 E/F Super Hornets, also in use, are not scheduled to be replaced. Throughout the Navys EIS process, county officials objected to the study on the grounds that there a baseline noise study was never done to find out the impact of the current jets, meaning theres no basis for comparison to the newer models, a deployment date for which isnt certain.This is the last act, District 1 Commissioner Danny Kolhage said. Do the noise study that provides the baseline for what we have right now against the time when they bring in the new F-35s. If we had something like this going into the last process, we wouldve been in a much better position.The [countys] EIS committee believed and our consultant believed that we wouldve been well ahead of the game if we had a baseline comparison from one type of aircraft to another, Kolhage said. The Navy did not provide for that so the EIS committee recommended the county produce its own sound evaluation just to use as a baseline against whatever happens when they bring in the new F-35.Upper Keys resident John Hammerstrom, a former pilot whos critical of Navy jet noise, said it would serve the county well to do the study. Navy officials considered four options for upgrading NAS operations, one of those being no action. They selected the alternative that could increase the number of flight operations out of Boca Chica from 47,500 annually to 52,000. Take-offs and landings are considered individual operations. A county ordinance defines the area impacted by Navy jet noise as running from Stock Island west to Bay Point, and encompasses some 2,500 developed properties.

Board: Restrict mobile businessesOperators of mobile businesses could see additional regulation under an ordinance endorsed last week by the Monroe County Planning Commission. The change, if eventually enacted by the County Commission, would require mobile businesses that operate out of the owners home in the unincorporated areas to obtain a home-occupationuse permit. In the event the operation is based from a residence, the use shall require a home occupation special-use permit, says the proposed law. Mobile businesses include firms that use vehicles to provide services like mechanical repair or sell food.Some mobile-business owners have brought piles and piles of debris or landscaping back home with them, which is already a violation, Planning Department review manager Joe Haberman said at the Planning Commissions Feb. 26 meeting at the Marathon Government Center.The proposed change tightens the language to prohibit commercial activities from intruding into residential neighborhoods, he said.Under home-occupation permits, a business based at a residence can have up to one additional employee on the property, but customers should not frequent the property.Neighbors should not even know theyre running a business out of there, Haberman said.No one from the public opposed the suggested change, and the recommendation to the County Commission passed without dissent.Board chairman William Wiatt said the change should be reviewed to ensure that the change does not adversely affect commercial fishermen. The recommended rule change also includes changes to standardize required signage postings when applicants are seeking a special-condition permit like home use.Under proposal, permits would be requiredLAND-USE REGULATIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comLocal preference law getting tweakedThe Marathon City Council met in regular session Feb. 25 and took the following actions:Held a lengthy discussion regarding a law aimed at giving local contractors a leg up on procuring municipal jobs. It says that if a bidder comes within 10 percent of the low non-local bid, it would get preference for that deal.But issues arose when the law came into play with the citys plans for a new city hall now budgeted for $4.5 million. The law was never intended to consider contracts that size. The council made no decisions, but largely agreed that instituting a sliding scale to the law would solve the citys problem. The only reason were looking at this thing is we got to the point where we were looking at $5 million [for a city hall] and thats $500,000, said Mayor Dick Ramsay, who sponsored the original 2009 ordinance.Ive talked to a lot of the local contractors. We definitely need a sliding scale and we have to be careful, Council man Rich Keating said.It was a smart thing to put in place when you guys did it. It does need to be cleaned up a little bit, Councilman Mark Senmartin said.The council agreed to discuss amendments to the law further at its March 11 meeting. Offered a tepid response to Senmartins idea to insert opinion polls on the citys website. Maybe set something up with a log in, but you can get in there and let us know. Its not a vote or a referendum, but its an opinion poll, he said. Keating said he would be concerned with taking up staff time creating polls, while former Councilwoman Ginger Snead (she resigned her seat at the close of the meeting) opposed it for several reasons. I dont suffer from a lack of opinion through my e-mail account with the city. I get plenty of it, Keating said. The same people will be the ones giving their opinions, Snead said. Snead said polls would also discourage people from wanting to attend public meetings and address the council in person. Theres no reason I have to go if I can go online and tell you how to vote, she said.City hall work would have been worth $500,000By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCity starts anew on city hall workAs expected, the Marathon City Council has voted unanimously to reject all bids to build a planned new city hall. Concerns were piling up with the initial process, which left West Construction Inc. out of Lake Worth and BotsfordOverholt Construction out of Marathon as the two low bidders from which the board could choose. Following the resignation of former City Manager Roger Hernstadt in January, city Finance Director Peter Rosasco told the council that many staff members are concerned with inflated costs and a rushed timeline to complete the project. Rosasco hinted Hernstadt was behind the problems. In addition, issues arose related to a city law giving local contractors preference on municipal jobs. It says if a local bid is within 10 percent of the low non-local bid, it would get preference for that deal. All that led the board to heed rather straightforward advice from City Attorney John Herin on Feb. 25. We have gotten so far afield from where we started that I feel very uncomfortable with us proceeding. We have little or no option but to essentially start over the bid process, he said.Rosasco has said the city cant afford the estimated $5.5 million price tag for the building designed by Key Westbased architect William Horn and Marathon-based Solaria Design & Consulting Co.He said construction costs must come down to $4.5 million or the city would jeopardize other capital projects. That would take some doing given Wests original bid was $6.68 million and Botsford-Overholt bid of $7.14 million. Solaria owner Steve Grasely addressed the new budget with a presentation to the council. He said the design team met with city staff on Feb. 13 and 19 to discuss the project and potential design alterations. He was cautiously optimistic a roughly 15,000-square-foot city hall could be built for $4.5 million, or roughly $300 per square foot. Getting to $300 is clearly not a slam dunk. Its going to take some careful considerations to get there. Were not saying its not doable, but its going to take some work to get there, Grasely said. Grasely told the council the meetings with staff were preliminary and requested another 30 days to better plan around the citys new budget. The council unanimously agreed.Designers aks for more time for new planBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

Seafood everywhereThe 38th edition of the Original Marathon Seafood Festival takes over the Middle Keys Saturday and Sunday. Story, 3B Conch boys fall but Lady Canes rollCoral Shores Highs Will Mortons strategy had been simple approaching his No. 1 boys singles match Monday afternoon against Key Wests Kyle Campbell. Just keep it in, the freshman said after making few errors in winning, 8-0, in a match that took barely a half hour. Morton, who is ambidextrous, was back playing lefthanded. I played a couple of matches right-handed earlier in the season after I hurt my left hand, he said. Hes a good little player, said Coral Shores coach Blake Fry. Its probably his best performance to date. Campbell, who was playing No. 1 for the first time, was a victim of his own errors against Mortons s top-spin forehands and backhand slices. After losing the first game, he kept whacking his shoes with his racket, like a baseball batter knocking dirt out of his spikes. Hes good, Campbell said afterward. He beat me, 8-2, the first time we played at Coral Shores. Despite Mortons performance, the Hurricane boys lost, 5-2, to the Conchs, who avenged an earlier loss. Chris Bujak, normally Key Wests No. 1 boys, played at No. 2 and, in a long grueling match, defeated Sam Nelson, 8-6, even though Bujak said, My serve wasnt on point.The other Conch boy winners were Simon Dayer, 8-5 over Cole Hauser; Colin Hetzler, 8-2 over Josh Bernstein; and Kevin Cheung, 8-1 over Nick Kaufman.Campbell attained a measure of revenge when he and Bujak defeated Morton and Nelson, 8-6, in No. 1 doubles.

Five ridiculous errors, is how coach Ralph Henriquez put it. The defeat ended a fivegame winning streak for the Conchs who defeated Douglas, 5-2, on Friday night and dropped them to 6-2. They had not made a total of five errors in their previous seven games. Key West took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on an RBI triple by Greg Veliz, but two hit batters by starting pitcher Jay Feathers set up the tying run for Douglas in the second. After a lead-off single in the top of the third, Feathers threw wildly to first base its only 42 feet, Henriquez noted to allow the runner to move to third, from where he scored on an error by Veliz at shortstop.

Fin boys win, Cane girls streakingPREP TENNISBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com WALTERSof how, in high school tennis, each position counts, Fry said of his improving boys lineup.Cane girls winThe Coral Shores girls won, 7-0. No. 1 Erica Williams defeated Fernanda Caceras (who had been moved up to the top spot from No. 3), 84, but not after a long battle that was 4-4 before Williams pulled away with four straight games. Fernanda has been playing good tennis, said Key West co-coach Bill Butler. I reiterated to her that you have to keep adjusting to Williams, who has a variety of weapons, especially the lob.No. 2 Hurricane Ellie Leopold defeated Laura Hall, 8-1. Ellie had a great day, Fry said. She dominated.No. 3 Juliana Pena defeated Hannah Brown (KW), 8-2. Pena, a tall left-hander who had the days highest service toss, played with a friendly smile as she loped over the court. She has an incredible net game, Fry said. She can play at a tournament level. No. 4 Rachel Walters defeated Tatum Flowers, 8-2, and No. 5 Maria Lozada defeated Kara Berces, 8-3. In No. 1 doubles, Leopold and Pena downed Hall and Brown, 8-2, and in No. 2 doubles, Walters and Lozada defeated Flowers and Symone Sanchez, 8-0. All the days matches were played in an air of sportsmanship, which was no surprise to Fry, the longtime Hurricanes coach. What a great group of kids on both teams, he said.Keys rivals split on tennis courtFrom Tennis, 1B Matt Hall, Dan Flynn, Isiah Leake, Jordan Leake and Tyler Hickory for outstanding work preparing the squad.Cane girls fallCoral Shores girls got burned both by the sun and scoreboard in a rare midday Saturday home game. The Lady Canes (2-3) fell to visiting American Heritage-Plantation (2-1) by a lopsided 19-3 score. We got beat by a better team and sunburned to boot, said head coach Mark Hall. We must do a better job playing as a team. Claire Brutger, Morgan Champagne and Amberlyn Casas each scored for Coral Shores. The Hurricanes played without defensive leader Kat Hamer, likely lost for the rest of the spring with an ankle injury. Hamer has signed to play for the University of Florida lacrosse team next year. The bright spot Saturday was the juniorvarsity squad, 12-1 winners over the Heritage JV. Caitlyn Wolf scored five goals for the Cane JV and Audrey Butler scored two. Coral Shores girls travel to Palmer Trinity on Thursday. Results from a Tuesday road game at University School in Broward County were pending at press time.Varsity loses but the JV winsFrom Lacrosse, 1B rally featured a two-RBI single by Hugo Valdes. Two walks by Key West relief pitcher Damon Taylor and a throwing error on a bunt by Feathers, who had moved to third base, enabled Douglas to come back with three runs in the fifth to take a 6-5 lead.Both teams scored in the sixth the Eagles with the aid of an error by second baseman Anthony Henriquez, and Key West on a single by Chris Varela and it was 7-6 entering the seventh.Douglas then scored two final runs when Taylor threw wildly to third base on a bunt attempt, the ball ending up in the left-field corner. He was nervous, the pressure got to him, Henriquez said. But we work on bunt plays all the time. Henriquez hopes to get third baseman Hunter Sellers and second baseman Darren Miller, who are injured, back in the lineup soon. Being without them made a big difference in how we played defensively, he said. The Conchs played at Ransom Everglades late Tuesday in a game that was too late to be included in todays paper.Defense hurting due to injuriesFrom Conchs 1B tum from tying the game and our defense was playing well. We put a rally together and started hitting, Leal said. A mustwin, and we won. No. 1 starter Kyle Pierce pitched a complete game against the Falcons. He allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out seven. Leal said the Dolphins sit atop the conference standings with a 5-1 record. They have four games left in the 10-game regular season schedule. The Dolphins were slated to visit Somerset Academy in Miami on Tuesday.Pierce, McKeon pitch gemsFrom Dolphins, 1BHurricanes prep for twin billThe baseball Hurricanes of Coral Shores High fill their home Founders Park field with a four-game slate Saturday.The varsity Canes (5-3) take on Sports Leadership Charter at 1 p.m. Saturday, then face Tampas Carrollwood Day of Tampa at 7.Both of these teams were coming down Saturday and wanted to play us so we figured, why not make it a doubleheader? said Coral Shores head coach Pat Meyers.Coral Shores junior-varsity games will be played at 10:30 a.m. (SLAM) and 4 p.m. (Carrollwood) Saturday.A 7 p.m. Friday home game against Ransom Everglades makes it a busy weekend.Coral Shores won two of its three games this week, including a 10-0 shutout of South Florida Baseball Conference rival Archbishop Curley on March 1. David DiMaggio pitched a no-hitter through five innings for the mound decision that gives the Canes a 31 conference record. Will Goodwin had three hits against Curley while Austin Seabolt doubled and singled. Other Canes with two hits were first baseman Luke Lofton, Jose Lima and Fernando Garcia. In other games this week:A comeback by Keys Gate Charter caught the Canes in a 4-3 loss Feb. 28. Goodwin threw a scoreless one-hitter for six innings but Keys Gate scored four runs against Cane relievers. It fell apart at the end, Meyers said. Coral Shores catcher Kyle Gates doubled and singled, and Dalton Falcucci singled twice.Coral Shores outscored Ransom Everglades, 9-7, Feb. 25. The Canes scored four runs in the fourth to take a 94 lead but had to hold off a late Raider rally. Lima had a two-hitter for the mound win, with Daryl Chou getting a save in relief.CORAL SHORES BASEBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com


Heated water is your friendSkip the gym and hit the water instead.If youre looking to pull on some big fish, youre in luck. The warming waters are doing a great job of heating up the fishing, especially for some of our larger species. On the oceanside, we find large schools of cobia following rays. Some of these fish weight up to 80 pounds, with 40-pounders not uncommon. On the bayside, we head to wrecks or any sort of structure to look for cobia. The fish are not as numerous, but can be just as large. The Atlantic wrecks are holding masses of amberjack. These fish will test your mettle every time, and are excellent on the smoker, some say better than kingfish.Sailfishing has been sporadic, but March is typically the start of tailing season. So we should start to see more flags flying at the docks. But I wouldnt devote an entire trip to sailfishing right now, as you may end up with more of a boat ride than fishing trip. However, if you mix it up with some fishing for cobia and amberjack, as described above, as well as snapper fishing on the reef, youll have a great day.The bay and gulf continue to reward anglers with large mangrove snapper up to three and five pounds, sea trout going almost 20 inches, king and Spanish mackerel and more. We did our first shallowwater shark trip for 2014 on the SeaSquared on Sunday, with the first fish released a six-foot, 150-pound bull shark. Light-tackle, shallow-water angling for sharks presents the opportunity to experience the exhilaration of big-game sportfishing closer to shore and easier on your budget.The weeks bestJim and Sara Spencer from Rockville, Md., fished with Capt. Chuck Brodzki. They caught more than 150 fish near Sprigger Bank, harvesting a select few for dinner at an Islamorada eatery. Their catch included Spanish mackerel, sea trout, mangrove snapper, ladyfish plus a blacktip shark. Besides shark fishing, the SeaSquared crew fished the channels, patch reefs and bay. Our anglers experienced a nice uptick in king mackerel plus good-size mangroves and sea trout. Capt. Jeff Knapp, of Beckoning Charters in Marathon, continues to put his anglers on tarpon at the Seven Mile Bridge under star-lit skies. Steve Bylina, from Chicago, landed fish from 20 to 70 pounds, and Muskrat John Murray scored a 100-pounder. Knapp uses live mullet and lures, depending on the tide. He is now docked with us at Porkys Bayside Restaurant and Marina.Fishing seminarThe Marathon Boat Yard Marine Center continues its 2014 seminar series Thursday. I will present Fishing the Reef from Top to Bottom. Join us starting at 6 p.m. at their showroom at 2001 Overseas Highway, Marathon. There will be beverages, popcorn and drawings for prizes. Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/ bay, reef/wreck, sailfish, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Porkys Bayside Marina in Marathon.

Henry Flagler used stone from Windley Key to help build the Key West Extension of the Florida East Coast Railway. After the railroad was built, the quarry was used until the 1960s to produce decorative stone called Keystone. Today, visitors can walk along 8-foot-high quarry walls to see cross sections of the ancient coral and learn about the quarry and its operation. Windley Key Day admission is free will include hot dogs and hamburgers available for a donation to the Friends of the Islamorada Area State Parks. Seafood lovers can savor a fisherman-to-fork feast of indigenous fish, shrimp, lobster and stone crab claws at Marathons signature foodie fair, the Original Marathon Seafood Festival, set for Saturday and Sunday at the Marathon Community Park, mile marker 49 oceanside. At the 38th annual edition of the event, expect there to be plenty of dolphin, stone crab, shrimp, crackers piled high with creamy smoked fish dip and conch served four ways: Ceviche, chowder, fried golden fritters and bun-hugging conchwurst sausage. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Keys Fisheries, which processes fishermens catches for its busy market and restaurant, has space large enough to prepare the festivals feast: A whopping 2,750 pounds of whole lobster, 1,400 pounds of dolphin, 1,000 pounds of stone crab claws, 750 pounds of Key West pink shrimp, 200 pounds of fish dip, 80 gallons of conch chowder and 50 gallons of conch ceviche. From the west coast of Florida come 75 bushels of oysters and 75 bags of clams. Local chefs offer up their talents to prepare the food according to Keys-based recipes. Save room for the sweets booth, which will have fresh Key lime pies, baked goods and cakes, cool smoothies and icy treats. The family-friendly event also features an artists village and art show, raffle giveaways and prizes including a cooler stocked with fresh Keys seafood awaiting one lucky person.
