Now were pretty much hunkered down for the long term. State officials filed a separate federal lawsuit against BP and other defendants in 2013 over unresolved economic damages incurred by governments.The latest action in federal court addresses the states cost of restoring the environmental damage from the largest oil spill in U.S. history.After many years of unsuccessfully trying to reach a settlement, the case has come to a point where Florida must join the suit in order to protect our most valuable natural resource, Gov. Rick Scott said in a Wednesday statement on the environmental damages case. Attorney General Pam Bondi said the suit, seeking a declaratory judgment establishing the liability of BP and other companies for naturalresource damages caused by the oil spill, is part of the states efforts to ensure that Florida is made whole from the devastating environmental and economic consequences of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill disaster.The states Gulf Coast Consortium comprises Florida counties eligible for a share of penalties paid by BP and otherFlorida officials want immediate ruling on the companys liability for pollutionDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTERGOOD MORNING, KEY WEST By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgSee BP, 3AMoney-hungry suspect nabbedEven in the expensive Florida Keys, you can get a pretty darn good meal for $277.

The president spoke at Coral Reef High School in Miami on Friday, and First Lady Michelle Obama was also in South Florida pitching her Lets Move! youth exercise initiative push and to try to boost health insurance enrollments under the Affordable Care Act.

Some homeowners would receive significant concessions, while the owners of second homes and commercial properties would be left holding the short end of the stick, if the U.S. Senate, as expected, adopts the U.S. Houses Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act. The bill, H.R. 3370, was the House response to an original Senate bill aimed at mitigating crippling rate increases that were the result of the 2012 Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012.Enacted on Oct. 1, the Biggert-Waters Act was aimed at stabilizing the $24 billion National Flood Insurance Program deficit. Its overseen by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.But the law was rife with unintended consequences and stuck many Keys residents with staggering insurance premium hikes and had an immediate negative affect on a slowly recovering Keys real estate market. Sales all but halted. A saving grace, though, could be the House urging FEMA to restrict policies from having annual premiums that exceed 1 percent of the total coverage.Almost every Keys homeowner with a mortgage has depended on subsidized NFIP insurance for affordable flood coverage and they cap out at $250,000 in coverage. That means the highest annual premium for Keys property owners could be $2,500.Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe Executive Director Chic Wagner said that provision is important because Congress is notified of every policy above the 1 percent recommendation. What we have is FEMA not having carte blanche, he said. In every circumstance it doesnt happen, they have to report it to Congress. The House bill does not include either of the hallmarks that FIRM Monroe worked to have included in the Senate version. Those are a four-year rate-hike delay for all policies and a mandatory FEMA affordability and economic impact study on rate increases. Still, Wagner said FIRM supports the House bill because it includes sweeping reform for primary homeowners. Perhaps most importantly, the House version repeals Bigger-Waters provisions regarding home sales and applying for new policies. A property sale or having to purchase a new policy were repealed as immediate triggers for rate hikes, Wagner said. In addition, a buyer would inherit the last existing rate paid by the seller. From there, theres a primary owner glide path and secondary and commercial owner glide path, Wagner said, referring to the percentage rate hike increases FEMA could enforce. For primary homeowners, there are two paths:For houses built prior to January 1975, when FEMAs flood insurance rate map was created. Wagner said those would fall into a 5 to 15 percent yearly increase pool until they reach the 1 percent cap, depending how FEMA classifies the properties. The increase could be no more than 18 percent annually for any individual policy.For more on this story, go to www.KeysInfoNet.com .Bill would ban lionfish importsState lawmakers and fishery managers have lionfish in their sights this spring. Lionfish, an invasive species from the Pacific Ocean, have been targeted by Florida Legislature bills and by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission action. State Rep. Holly Raschein, Republican from Key Largo, has filed HB Bill 1069 to ban the importation and sale of imported lionfish.The bill moved to the Houses Agriculture and Natural Resource Committee during this weeks opening action of the Florida Legislatures spring session. A companion bill has been filed in the Florida Senate.Everybody knows about the damage lionfish are causing, Raschein said Wednesday. Lionfish are protected by an array of venomous spines that discourage predators, and the fish has no natural predators in the Atlantic.Lionfish breed rapidly, consume large amounts of juvenile native fish, and can survive in shallows to depths of several hundred feet. Some Caribbean islands have seen their reefs overrun by lionfish, with a consequent decline of native species.The FWC, at its April 1517 meeting in Tallahassee, will review proposed new rules to combat lionfish.Already, the state has lifted requirements for a saltwater fishing license for divers who spear or net lionfish. Anglers (who still need a fishing license) can take as many lionfish as they can reel in.A recent summit on lionfish suggested a whole suite of options to reduce the species numbers, said FWC spokeswoman Amanda Nalley.New rules being forwarded to the FWC include the possibility of allowing the use of diving rebreathers to take lionfish. The no-bubble rebreathers currently are banned for spearfishing.Other options include opening some areas of state water in the Keys where spearfishing now is banned to allow spearing for lionfish. The rule was first adopted under special action for a 2013 Key Largo lionfish derby.Also at the FWCs April meeting, the agency board likely will hear staff recommendations on new rules for harvesting sea cucumbers.

Benjamin Check, 21, also is charged with misdemeanor theft. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says about 12:45 a.m., deputies were called to the Marathon Grill and Alehouse in the Gulfside Plaza after people saw him beating Wally. Witnesses said Check was picking Wally up by the ears and slam[ming] him into the ground repeatedly. They also saw him thrust his knee into Wallys side. They said during the entire attack, Wally was crying out in pain, Deputy Becky Herrin said.Check was searched and found with someone elses wallet, hence the theft charge. Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys was called and took custody of Wally.The dog wasnt hurt too bad. He didnt suffer pain afterward, but that doesnt change the fact he abused the dog, said Jared Daeffler, animal control officer. The dog is very friendly, probably very adoptable, if we do get [permanent] custody of him. abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVYXYZ<>1234567890,./-=_+ CONTICH Wanda Lu Contich, 72, of Webster, Florida and formerly of Marathon, passed away on January 29, 2014 after a long battle with numerous cancers.

Rate increases slowly addressedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFLOOD INSURANCEBoard OKs news rack lawThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday adopted a new regulation designed to ensure newspaper racks placed on the public right of way are anchored in the event a major storm hits.An earlier version of the ordinance, proposed by Commissioner Tony Yaniz, required news racks to be affixed to standard-size concrete slabs weighing at least 80 pounds. The slabs would have protruded from the base of the news racks, creating potential liability (someone tripping and falling). In response, commissioners changed the law to make the bases flush with the racks, necessitating a more costly custom fabrication. For the Keynoter Publish ing Co. and its parent The Miami Herald Media Co., that means a $30 to $35 custom concrete fabrication for each of approximately 100 news racks, not including installation costs, according to Keynoter Publisher Richard Tamborrino. In a March 5 e-mail to City Attorney Shawn Smith, Tamborrino called it a costly undertaking. Simply bolting these racks to the sidewalk would have been a far less painstaking and expensive process and it would have accomplished exactly the same security. Paul Clarin, publisher of the Key West Citizen hadnt estimated a cost to bring his companys approximately 300 news racks into compliance when contacted Friday. The previous ordinance required owners to remove the racks from sidewalks within 24 hours of a hurricane warning being issued. Under the new law, they wont have to be removed. The new ordinance isnt perfect, he said, but I believe its better than the significantly flawed rules it replaces. Were happy we will no longer have to pick up the racks after a hurricane watch is declared. At the Tuesday session, Smith summarized the changes.The issue we keep coming around to is the extension outside of the area of the news rack itself, he said. Anything that protrudes could be a trip hazard, which you would not have if the cement pad the news rack was resting on was the same dimensions as the box itself.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST OUR ENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org he was attempting to swallow it, Deputy Joel Slough wrote in the arrest report.He immediately pulled over and began an unsuccessful attempt to recover the evidence by applying pressure to CordovaParrados neck. He actively resisted me by clamping his jaws shut and refusing to open his mouth. No money came out, although once at the jail, Slough found a $5 bill and a $1 bill in the suspects underwear. A review of the video clearly shows the defendant concealing the stolen currency in his pants and then later consuming the evidence until discovered. The situation started around 8:45 p.m. when deputies were called to 1507 Overseas Highway on a report of domestic battery on Cordovo-Parrados live-in girlfriend, Lissette Martinez. Their argument started earlier in the night at another house when another man touched Martinez on the knee, Slough wrote, and then Cordova-Parrado pushed Martinez and allegedly took her wallet, which contained $750. When deputies arrived at the house, they also found a Diazepam pill, for which Cordova-Parrado doesnt have a prescription, and some of the money. He faces grand theft, robbery, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and battery charges. As for the money, there still is $277 unaccounted for, Slough wrote, the amount Cordova-Parrado likely ate. What the denominations were, Slough didnt say.Cash unaccounted forFrom Money, 1A jail at 3 a.m. Feb. 28 on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. She was released on her own recognizance seven hours later. Miller declined comment. According to a Monroe County Sheriffs Office arrest report, Miller hit her daughter in the abdomen while the two argued in the Buttonwood Bay condominium parking lot over the girl running away from home. The girl called the police and waited for deputies to arrive at the mile marker 96 subdivisions guardhouse. The girl, not identified by KeysNetInfo.com because of her age, was not seriously injured and declined medical treatment.Even taking the allegations made by the victim in this case at face value, the facts do not support a finding that the defendants action exceeded the scope of reasonable or non-excessive corporal punishment ... or a finding that the defendant committed child abuse, Bovill wrote in a March 5 filing.

Sunken tug owner arrested for trespassStephen Freer, owner of the recently sunk 81-foot tugboat Tilly was arrested Thursday for allegedly trespassing at a construction site in Old Town Key West. Freer, who said he has no experience boating, bought the 150-gross-ton Tilly for $8,000 off the Internet in January. He was evicted from the Stock Island Village Marina and now the tug is resting on sandy bottom in 35 feet of water about two miles off Key West. The boat sunk around Feb. 23. The salvage operation (multiple government agencies are still coming up with a plan) is expected to cost taxpayers around $500,000. Freer was arrested after Arnuad Girard, the owner of under-construction 630 Eaton St., found him sleeping inside. Girard had picked Freer up off the tug before it sank. Freer wouldnt leave the Eaton Street property when Girard told him to, police say. When they arrived around 8:30 p.m. Thursday, he called them swine, Nazis [and] pigs, according to a police report. Trespassing at a marked construction site is a felony. Freer, 66, is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island without bond, according to Sheriffs Office records. In a previous interview, Freer said he wanted to take the tug to Cuba to start a marine cooperative and escape the evil empire of America. Since Jan. 23, Sheriffs Office deputies have issued three trespass warnings to Freer for countyowned property at the Key West library and Bernstein Park, and from private property at the Sea Lobster Co. on Stock Island.defendants for polluting Gulf of Mexico waters.While Monroe County was not directly affected by the spill itself, concern over the catastrophe caused economic losses in the Florida Keys summer season of 2010.Concern also remains on how future impacts of the oil pollution will affect the Gulf environment and fishing. A BP spokesman told news outlets that BP is reviewing Floridas lawsuit and continues to evaluate potential spill-related environmental damage. In recent months, Neugent said, BP has not been responsive. Were happy the state is taking a different approach in suing them, Neugent said. That may carry greater weight as far as getting some kind of resolution. Monroe County staff drafted tentative plans for Keys projects that could be funded with the pollutionfine money allocated through the federal Restore Act. There was kind of a rush to put things in place in case [a settlement] happened quickly, Neugent said. Now we have to sit back and wait a little longer. Were not going to have the money we hoped for a lot of things. The BP settlement process for residents and businesses in the five-state area affected by the spill nearly ground to a halt in October, said Bernadette Restivo, managing partner for the Upper Keys-based law firm Restivo, Reilly & Vigil-Farinas. The firm filed about 1,400 claims for Keys residents and businesses, with other firms handling more.Neugent: BP not responsiveFrom BP, 1A Saturday, March 8, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com $25/child (under 10)For tickets contact United Way of the Florida Keys at 305-735-1929, or admin@ keysunitedway.org.

Commissioner John DeNeale declined to seek another term.Paterson said her main focus is a more efficient wastewater billing system that could save the city money. Bills are mailed out quarterly to roughly 900 people.In addition, Paterson said shes interested in electronically backing up city records kept by city Building Official Ed Borysiewicz in a secondfloor City Hall office.Id like to help and see if we can find a method to organize it and get it backed up or saved another place, she said.Paterson said shes also been open with residents about her marriage to Commis sioner Jerry Ellis and the possibility of two board members living under the same roof. Floridas Sunshine Law overseeing open government prevents members of an elected board from discussing city business anywhere but at a public meeting.When I close my doors at night, I wont be discussing city business, she said.Wovas said hes pleased at the level of interest in the election. I think the community has gotten a good perspective of what each candidates mission would be, whomever is elected, he said.Wovas said hes pushing a fiscal responsibility platform on the campaign trail. He said he wants to be sure the city can afford its planned wastewater plant upgrades and construction of a reverse osmosis plant. The reverse osmosis plant would allow the city to re-use water on cityowned properties such as its ninehole parthree golf course. The city is embarking on two major capital projects that combined will exceed $2.5 million. For a little community, thats a whole lot of money, Wovas said.He acknowledged that Patersons marital situation has been a big discussion in the community but that he has avoided making it an issue.Ive refused to embark on that because I thought it would be too political, he said. Each citizen can make their own judgment. Zahn shared a similar sentiment. Its at least a 50-50; some people have concerns and some say it doesnt matter. If Im lucky enough to be reelected, Ill work with anyone who is on the commission, she said.In January, Zahn was named interim mayor/admin istrator after Commis sioner Ron Sutton stepped down for family reasons. Sutton is still a commissioner. She said shes worked to maintain strong financial decisions by keeping the budget in line so we can keep the quality of the city at a level the residents expect.Im also working hard on researching grants locally and through the state that can help us with our finances, Zahn said. We have money in place for the required sewer [plant] updates coming up soon. Weve been financially preparing for that impact.She said the city is preparing for the estimated $750,000 to $1 million reverse osmosis project in a fiscally responsible manner. Polls will be open at City Hall from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Elections are at large, meaning the two who get the most votes will be elected.Three vying for two seats on commissionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY COLONY BEACH PATERSON WOVAS ZAHNKEY WEST FREERKeynoter StaffContractor charged with theftA Delray Beach contractor arrested Thursday on a grand-theft count for failing to complete a boat-lift installation in the Keys has a record of similar incidents, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office reports. Peter O. Englund, 61, is accused of taking $1,500 from a Key Largo resident in March 2013 as a down payment for a boat lift. After that, he never showed up to do the work, agency spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said. Repeated phone calls from the homeowner got no response from Englund. The complaint in Thursdays arrest is the fourth lodged locally against Englund since 2009, Sheriffs Office records show. In 2009, a Key Largo property owner and a Tavernier resident accused Englund of taking a combined $14,300 and doing no actual construction on either project. Englund was arrested on grand-theft warrants in early 2010 after failing to respond to the customers. Online records from Monroe County Circuit Court indicate that Englund agreed to a pretrial diversion program in the 2009 cases, but in 2012 was charged with failing to appear in court for a mandatory hearing. Those cases remain active. A third incident from 2009 was settled when Englund repaid a customers down payment. We cannot emphasize enough that before people turn their money over to someone, they really check them out, Herrin said. Englund opened his Viking Marine company in Delray Beach in 2004 and closed it in 2009 or 2010. Florida corporate records list several active firms with Viking Marine in their names but Englund is not listed as an officer of any of them. Englund posted a $10,000 bond Thursday and was released three hours after his booking.CRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff ENGLUND
Marine sanctuary deceptiveThe Key West Chamber of Com merce asks everyone for their support for a moratorium on new fishing regulations in the Florida Keys unless absolutely necessary to protect the breeding population of a specific fish stock.The chamber is concerned about the explosion of fishing regulations in Monroe County and the catastrophic impact they are have having on our recreational and commercial fishing industry. Recreational fishing drives a tremendous amount of our tourism. In 1976, Congress passed the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act to create fishery management councils that conserve and manage the federal fishery resources found with a 200-mile exclusive economic zone beyond state boundaries. Our local fishermen respect the federal regulation development process, which was designed to maintain optimum yields from federal fishing stocks. Our local fishermen know this program will continue to benefit them. Our local problem is that large areas of our fishing grounds have been made off limits to all fishing and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is looking at other areas to close. The process now being followed by the sanctuary administration has resulted in unpredictable increases in off-limits designations and bans of all fishing for all species, which is resulting in damage to our local fishermen. New closures are being proposed by the sanctuary, which Congress never intended to function in the field of fishery management. Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean fishery management regulation under federal law is reserved to the fishery management councils, not the marine sanctuary. Our two regional fishery management councils prepare, monitor and revise fishery management plans for individual fishery resources and are required by law to ensure that regulations are based upon the best available scientific information. In contrast, the marine sanctuary has no legislative authority, much less a requirement, and seeks to regulate or prohibit fishing in large areas of the Keys. The sanctuarys arbitrary and deceptive marine zoning scheme must be stopped if we want to protect our recreational and commercial fishermen and our tourism. Robin Lockwood, president Key West Chamber of Commerce Editors note: No decisions have been made on the local, state or federal levels about any changes to existing marine protected areas.

Once the decision to seek election is made, every aspect of your life becomes public record. There are reasons for this. You are now applying for a job where you will make decisions affecting your constituents, and in most cases, will be accepting at least some payment in taxpayer money. In other words, you work for the people, and if youre elected, youre on the clock from here on out until your term ends.Certainly, the most prominent office in the land is president of the United States, and we see over and over how much seemingly meaningless scrutiny is placed on President Obama as was the case with his predecessors. Obamas a year into his second term and people still question his birthplace, his academic achievements and even if he still takes the occasional drag off a cigarette.Local politicians and lawmakers have far less inspection placed on them, but they are no less important to the fabric of our democracy. They, too, chose to make their life public. This means how they behave, with whom they socialize and what happens to them in terms of the law however minor or personal matter to the public.On Feb. 28, Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services Com missioner Jennifer Miller was arrested after deputies were called to what appears to be a minor family dispute. Miller, 39, was booked into the Monroe County jail and released on her own recognizance hours later.The incident may very well have been blown out of proportion, and the case was dropped on Wednesday. But when an elected official is arrested, it is news period. Any newspaper that declines to report such an arrest would be negligent in its primary responsibility as a government watchdog. That didnt deter one caller who urged us to not to run the story or face the consequences of losing advertising dollars. Lets be clear: A media company that allows the threat of lost advertising revenue to shape its reporting or news content isnt worth the paper its printed on. We are not that media company. To us, it was a simple choice. Report the story or get out of the business. It should be noted that our newspapers The Reporter and Keynoter keep our news and advertising departments separate in preparation for these exact circumstances. That ethical wall was put there a long time ago so our editors and reporters would not be tempted to run or hold stories based on an advertisers sensibilities.So while we depend on advertising dollars and depend on these revenues to produce our newspapers, our ability to serve the community remains our highest priority.Bicyclists: Use the bike pathsWhile traveling on U.S. 1 recently, my daughter and I were held up for quite a while trying to pass slow-moving bicyclists. I am really curious to know why they were on the road rather than the beautiful and safe bike path next to it. Could it be they think themselves too good for a bike path? Maybe they want to be admired for their stealth helmets and their shiny tight pants. So arrogance or vanity? Maybe just plain stupidity for endangering themselves and everybody else on the road. Bike paths are for bicyclists use them.

Dwight Bullards legislation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Following are some of your thoughts posted below our online story:Its a start. Now Sen. Bullard has another supporter.The juicers in Tallahassee wont let this fly.Thats what people thought of the medical bill.This guy for president! They need to rush this through and fast. We are being doused by radiation daily and its our right and choice to use as a preventative.Time to get updated with medical issues and need.The tax revenue they would get may sway their opinions.Talk about getting our country out of debt with a great source of revenue.Good to see our representatives are properly representing the citizens. Nice work, support whats right. Marijuana is a good thing.The war on marijuana has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful war on drugs that has cost our country over a trillion dollars. Instead, the United States is wasting billions upon billions more of our tax dollars fighting a neverending war on marijuana. Lets generate billions of dollars and improve the deficit instead. Its a no-brainer.The prohibition of marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records, which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?While we depend on advertising dollars to produce our newspapers, our ability to serve the community remains our highest priority. Panel recommends changes to electionsIn a split vote, a city of Marathon charter review committee is recommending moving city elections back to March, the way it was before they moved to November in 2007. Meeting Feb. 24, the fivemember City Councilappointed panel also recommends reinstituting individual council seats rather than retain at-large voting.In a nonbinding referendum, voters approved the change to November elections by a margin of 58 percent.The charter review committee initially voted against keeping elections in November by a 3-2 vote, with John Bartus, Mike Cinque and Karen Farley-Wilkinson favoring a change. Another vote was unanimous to move them back to March, with members Frank Greenman and Jason Koler agreeing. Initially, Greenman and Koler argued that voter turnout is higher in November, but the other committee members said city elections get lost among other state and federal elections.I tend to think that were special. The city government is the closest to us and does the most to us. We really need to be cognizant of whos running and what they have to say, FarleyWilkinson said. The committee also unanimously agreed that reinstituting specific seats is a better format than electing the top two or three-vote getters in an at-large election. Seats mean that if two seats are open, two or more candidates would run campaigns vying separately for each one. They are not bound by where someone lives. City Councilman Mark Senmartin attended the Feb. 24 meeting and said he disagrees with running for specific seats. He said that leads candidates to argue more why you shouldnt vote for the other guy. Thats what we get in national politics, he said. The at-large took that out of the equation. I couldnt disagree more, Bartus said. When you are running and somebody opposes you, youre more forced to run on your record than the free-for-all, popularity contest it seems to have turned into.InterferenceWhile deciding on recommended changes to elections, the charter review committee hasnt been able to offer direction on one of its major talking points. In January, the City Council charged the panel with offering potential changes to the 15-year-old document overseeing all aspects of city government, but the portion dealing with council members interference with staff has been proven a tough nut to crack. Under the code, elected officials cannot direct city staff; thats up to the city manager. The committee has gone back and forth, including at length during its Monday meeting, about whether council interference is a violation of the law and whose job it is to enforce it. The whole idea for the advisory committee grew out of former Councilwoman Ginger Snead proposing to make charter violations a misdemeanor enforceable by the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. For example, Mayor Dick Ramsay has openly admitted working directly with city staff on issues, which is not allowed.City Attorney John Herin told the committee on Monday and in previous meetings how he would recommend ending the confusion. The way to do it is to make a violation of the charter a violation of the city code, which under general law is punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor. Then we can enter into an agreement with the State Attorneys Office that will allow them to prosecute violations, he said. That didnt fly for several committee members, including Cinque, a former council member who helped craft the charter prior to Marathon incorporating in 1999. He argued the charter cites specific Florida statutes relating to interference by council members.It reads: Except for the purposes of inquiry and information, the council and its members, including committees thereof, are expressly prohibited from interfering with the performance of the duties of any employee of the city government who is under the direct or indirect supervision of the city manager or city attorney. Such action shall be malfeasance within the meaning of [Florida statute 112.51] and shall be punishable as provided in [Florida Statute] 112.317.The state attorney is obliged to enforce Florida law and we made Florida law a part of our charter, Cinque said.Greenman raised questions about the interpretation of the word interfere in the charter.Altering that portion of the charter might not even fall under the charter review committees purview, according to Bartus. Any final changes to the charter require voter approval via referendum, with the lone exception being when council elections are held.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

He attributes the decision largely to the lack of assisted living available in the Southernmost City.Im getting older, he wrote. I see that many of the ordinary tasks in day-to-day life that are easy now wont be in the future. Since there is no assisted living in Key West, my only viable option is to leave. Its a heartbreaking, but realistic decision. He plans to move to northern California. Allen and his partner, Martin Kay, who died in December, bought the property in 1999 for $2.25 million, according to Monroe County Property Appraisers Office records, and spent more than $1.5 million since then making upgrades.I think I can say without boast that we created a unique place, a safe and happy space for thousands of gay men to meet, to eat and drink, to make merry, Allen wrote.Im proud of that, but more important in this context, Island House is successful and profitable operation. Im confident that its new owner will operate it as a gay mens resort. The resort, assessed at $8.05 million, opened in 1976 and over the years has garnered many accolades, including being dubbed the best gay resort in the world by OUT Traveler. The property had not been formally listed as of Wednesday.Allen selling gay resort due to health issueBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST The Island House on Fleming Street is going on the market.

The Marathon City Council could begrudgingly surrender its second major state grant in less than a month on Tuesday. After forfeiting a $1.53 million National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant last month that was meant to help purchase Boot Key, the city is on the verge of returning $264,000 ($200,000 plus interest) to the state Department of Environmental Protection.The $200,000 DEP grant was awarded in July 2004 through the agencys Florida Recreational Development Assistance Program to help purchase a roughly two-acre parcel aimed at expanding the Marathon Community Park.The grant required the city to use the parcel for recreational purposes, which the city apparently violated when it used one acre of it to construct a sewer plant in 2009. The city apparently never bothered to inquire with DEP as to the status of the grant after building the plant.Previous city management was not inclined to contact FRDAP and ask for more explanation. Because nobody asked the question in 2009, we went down this road until December 2013, Community Services Director Debbie London said. Since coming on board in 2012, London said shes learned that DEP would require the city to mitigate the land used for the sewer plant by purchasing a similarly sized lot in Marathon to be used for the same purpose. London said the city is better off at this point paying the money back. Our alternative is to pay back the money or we have to purchase a one-acre site in the city and develop it as a project of equal scope at $400,000, not including the land acquisition, she said. London discussed paying the grant back with the City Council at its Feb. 25 meeting, but is slated to present a more detailed plan at Tuesdays council meeting. The city explored numerous park expansion options over the years, including a swimming pool in 2005 and, in more recent years, a splash park. Neither materialized after concerns were raised about construction and annual maintenance. Tuesdays council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Faced with one-sided opposition from the Key West City Commission, District 1 Commissioner Jimmy Weekley on Tuesday withdrew a proposed ordinance that would have tightened regulations governing body-painted breasts during Fantasy Fest.Under current law, public nudity is prohibited although breasts covered with body paint are allowed in the socalled fantasy zone, which runs the length of Duval Street and covers all the cross streets between Whitehead and Simonton Street.Body paint also must be applied out of public view.Weekleys proposal would have changed 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, essentially requiring women to wear pasties or other coverings.If you want your police officers to waste their time on a topless breasted woman when therere other more serious things going on, Commissioner Mark Rossi said, then put the directive to [Chief Donie Lee]. His department has much better things to do. If you dont like it, dont come down to Duval Street. Its a simple as that. Commissioner Clayton Lopez focused his comments on regulating topless women as opposed to topless men.Weve got to get away from the idea of a female breast as a sex organ because thats not it, he said. If you want to talk about covering genitalia, the breast is not part of that. He said there arent any regulations that pertain to men walking to the beach without a shirt. Weekley said hes going to continue pushing his proposal, shifting focus to perhaps decreasing the size of the Fantasy Zone.Were just going to have the same discussion next year, Weekley said, with people walking around outside of the party zone into other areas of the community nude. Maybe what we need to do then is limit the party zone and scale it down with the understanding that if someone leaves the party zone without covering up, its in violation of our ordinance.Lee said the approximately 120 police officers that work Fantasy Fest have zero tolerance for public exposure of male or female genitalia or public sex acts. If we see it, we deal with it. KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday, March 8, 2014 Christopher D.

City to return $200,000 grant$64,000 more in interest to go to DEPBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONLawsuit over road and sewers appealedAn appeal is under way in a case against the village of Islamorada over whether roads in the Venetian Shores subdivision are public or private.Venetian Shores resident James Bellizzi sued the village in 2010 in Monroe County Circuit Court arguing that the mile marker 86 neighborhoods roads belong to the homeowners. The suit held up a significant portion of the villages $98 million centralized wastewater construction project last summer because the contractor would not dig up roads there until Judge Luis Garcia made a decision on who owns them.He did in November, ruling that just because someone owns his or her front yard doesnt mean he or she owns the street in front of it. But in a brief filed Feb. 27 in the Third District Court of Appeal, Bellizzis attorney, Frank Greenman, argues the contrary.Greenman wrote that when the dedication of the Venetian Shores plats were written in the mid-1950s, the roads were reserved for the exclusive use of the owners of the property with no reversionary clause. Jeffrey L. Hochman, the attorney representing the village, could not be reached for comment.Bellizzi also contends the canals in the neighborhood belong to residents, not the village. Greenman cited a Monroe County document from 1971 that states, The boulevard, drives and canals as shown hereon are not dedicated to the public, but are for the exclusive use of owners of property in the subdivision.Ever since Bellizzis original lawsuit was filed four years ago, the village has argued that Monroe County deeded the neighborhoods roads to the village a year after Islamorada incorporated in 1997.Bellizzi argues the document the village used to make that determination is flawed and that the county never owned the roads and therefore could not have deeded them to Islamorada. Further, there are no facts in the record, or law in the state of Florida, which could authorize a conveyance of the streets and roads in the subdivision to [the village], without the consent of all affected property owners..., Greenman wrote.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADAU.S. 1 lane is closingConstruction of new U.S. 1 road shoulders and drainage systems through Tavernier will result in single-lane closures this week, the state Department of Transportation says.Work focuses on wider shoulders along the southbound lanes from mile marker 93 through marker 97.These lane closures will occur between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. with the possibility of extended closures from Monday through Friday, said an agency spokeswoman.Work along the northbound lanes will primarily be to install improved drainage systems, project manager Felix Rodriguez said. Access to side streets and business parking areas will remain open during the work, Rodriguez said. Speed limits will be reduced at the areas under active construction. The drainage and shoulders project likely will run through mid-December between Ocean Drive in Key Largo, south to Tavernier Creek Bridge.UPPER KEYSKeynoter Staff

Lindback, Zack Webb and Zack Filpes.Conchs dominate RansomThe Key West High baseball teams power surge continued Tuesday night in a 12-1 District 16-4A victory over Ransom Everglades in Coconut Grove. Steven Wells, Greg Veliz and Hugo Valdes hit home runs for the Conchs in a game that was stopped after the fifth inning because of the state 10-run mercy rule. Key West, which hit two homers last season both by Darren Miller has nine this season. I would never have felt that we would have nine at this stage, said coach Ralph Henriquez, who is coaching the team for the first time since leading the Conchs to their 11th state title in 2005. We had one home run in winter ball. One of the reasons for the surge is that the batters are swinging at good pitches. I dont like to take a fastball down the middle; it drives me insane, Henriquez said. Weight training during the season and special hitting drills, in which bats much heavier than regular bats are used, are also factors. Those build strength in the wrists and forearms, Henriquez said. Now we have a lot more bat speed. Its not that the kids are that bigger. We dont have any monsters. Wells homer against Ransom came with two on in third inning and broke a scoreless tie. The center fielder/relief pitcher also had a triple and double. Velizs homer came with two on in the fourth and was immediately followed by a solo shot from Hugo Valdes that made the score 7-0. Key West scored five more runs in the fifth on a two-run double by Veliz and a three-run double by Veliz.

DeLucas game-winning RBI single in the top of the seventh inning capped off a 4-3 win over Somerset in Miami on Tuesday. He also started and allowed just two hits in six innings. DeLuca and the entire Marathon offense made quick work of Curley on Wednesday in an 18-6 fiveinning mercy-rule victory. Marathon Coach Luis Leal said the team struggled defensively against the Panthers on Tuesday, but pulled out an important South Florida Baseball Conference win.We didnt play well but in the end we battled and found a way to win, which is all I can ask of my team, he said. The Dolphins (7-4) trailed 2-0 in the top of the fourth and got on the scoreboard when Carlos OFarrill singled and stole second base, third base and home to make it 2-1. Marathon tied the game in the top of the fifth inning. Somerset took the lead back in the bottom of the fifth, but the Dolphins rallied in the top of the seventh to go up 43. No. 1 starter Kyle Pierce pitched the bottom of the seventh inning to earn the save.On Wednesday, the Dolphins scored six runs in the first inning, four in the second, three in the third and five inClose contest against Somerset, rout over CurleyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLDavis chosen to lead DolphinsMarathon High School graduate Paul Davis has come full circle in being named the Dolphins new head varsity football coach on Friday.Davis takes over for Lance Martin, who resigned in December after compiling a 61-61 record in 12 seasons. A three-sport star for the Dolphins in the late 1980s, Davis graduated from Western Michigan University in 1993 and returned to Marathon as the head varsity boys basketball coach. He left after one season to pursue a professional football career and since then has been all over the country in various coaching and teaching capacities. That includes most recently in Key West, where he coached the Key West High School varsity boys basketball team for six seasons, compiling a 58-80 record. He resigned in June 2011.Davis was also the Conchs junior varsity football coach before moving this past season to the varsity program as defensive backs coach.Twenty years later, I get the opportunity to come back and run the [Marathon] program and its kind of like a dream come true, he said.Marathon grad tapped to coach football teamBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALLSee Marathon, 2BHurricanes strong on the trackCoral Shores High schools boys raced to six victories in a three-team track and field meet Tuesday in Tavernier.Overall, the Hurricane boys finished second in team standings, between first-place Gulliver Prep and St. Brendan.George Jacobsen (100meter dash), Henry Jacobsen (200) and Jesse Wollangk (400) took first in their respective races, then ran with winning Hurricane relay teams.

The Coral Shores High girls lacrosse squad suffered its fourth straight loss, falling to University School, 10-4, Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale. Katie McCormick scored two goals for the Canes (2-4). Amberlyn Casas and Claire Brutger each scored one goal. The defense held the game very close in the first half before Universitys Suns pulled away, Cane head coach Mark Hall said. The Lady Canes, defending district champions, are regrouping from losing key starters to injury after a strong 2013 class graduated. The Lady Canes play a 5:30 p.m. Wednesday home match against Coral Reef High School of Miami.On the junior-varsity level, the Lady Hurricanes blanked Universitys JV, 8-0, Tuesday.Emma Upchurch scored twice for the new Cane JV girls program. Paris Gasser scored a goal and delivered an assist. Five other Canes scored one goal. Goalkeeper Carolyn Barrow led the shutout defense with five assists.The Coral Shores lacrosse boys (2-2) played a Coral Reef at home Friday. The boys JV plays at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday against the Westminster Christian JV. In other Upper Keys prep sports this week:Coral Shores varsity baseball Canes (5-3) play two games today at the Founders Park field, at 1 p.m. against Sports Leadership Charter of Hialeah and 7 p.m. against Carrollwood Day of Tampa. The JV Canes play at 10:30 a.m. (SLAM) and 4 p.m. (Carrollwood). Defending district champion Gulliver Prep arrives in Islamorada for a 6:30 p.m. Tuesday game. The Cane varsity was 5-3 headed into a Friday game against Ransom Everglades (score pending at press time).Island Christian Schools baseball Eagles (0-3) play a Tuesday road against Redland Christian at the Colonial Christian field.The Hurricane tennis team goes on the road for two matches this week, at Immaculata-LaSalle on Monday and at Monsignor Pace on Wednesday. The Key West High softball team held Gulliver Prep scoreless for three innings Tuesday in Miami and then it all fell apart, Gulliver, which has won four consecutive state tiles, defeated the Conchs, 10-0, in a District 16-4A game stopped by the mercy rule after six innings.In the bottom of the fourth, we gave up a walk, made an error and then they hit a threerun homer, coach Ashley James said. Our whole demeanor changed after that and we lost our composure.Desirae Laguna pitched a complete game for the Conchs, allowing 11 hits, striking out one and walking three. But all the Conchs could manage with the bat were three hits one each by Angela Niles, Jayla DiGennaro and Mackenzie Cohen.We should have done better, James said. I feel this may be the weakest team Gulliver has had in a while but theyre still good. The loss dropped the Conchs to 3-5 overall and 21 in the district. Gulliver does not come to Key West this season, but it is likely that the teams will meet in the district tournament. The problem with our team is that when a bad thing happens, they get down on themselves and dont pick each other up, said James, a former Conch player who is in her first season as coach. The Conchs played Ransom Everglades late Friday in a game completed too late to be included in todays paper.

Below are a few style-related terms to help you overcome the everyday challenges of dressing up.Frock blockingThe Urban Dictionary assigns a different meaning to this term but I prefer to think of this in reference to giving and receiving compliments (frock block, a.k.a. not allowing another woman to learn where you bought an outfit so she cant also buy it).If a woman gives another woman a compliment like, I love your dress, where did you get it?, there is no need to frock block her. Tell her where you got it and revel in the fact that she adores it on you enough to want to buy one for herself. Too many times, women will receive a compliment like this and say, Oh, I cant remember or Im not sure, I got it as a gift. No you didnt stop frock blocking and tell us where you got that fabulous dress.Label shamingDont judge others for their lack of designer labels. Designer labels are wonderful but also incredibly unaffordable for most. The art of dressing is in the styling of an outfit, not in who designed it. Sometimes the best wardrobe finds are from unknown labels found at thrift stores and discount shops. So if you like something and it looks good on you, buy it regardless of who makes it.Croc blockingUnlike frock blocking, Croc blocking is something that you should do. Friends dont let friends wear Crocs. Crocs are not an attractive form of footwear. If you have a friend who wears Crocs, you need to help her and throw them away. Repeat after me: I will not wear them with a coat, I will not wear them on a boat, if you catch me with them on dry land, you can tell me I look bland.Trend tamingSome trends can be hard for even the most fashionable to achieve. So when you see a friend go overboard with a trend, help her tame her look by gently letting her know its too much. Fashion trends can inspire us to try new things but not all trends are meant forFollow these helpful tips for best lookCONCH STYLELeah Maki ConchStyleCrocs are always a no-no.

For some, the decision is hard to make.For others, the choice is easy. Petty Officer 2nd Class Hali Lombardi, being born and raised in Key West, is what helped her make the decision to serve in the U.S. Coast Guard. I grew up on the water down here, she said. I knew that I wanted a career that involved boats, so when I found out about the Coast Guard, I knew its where I belonged. She joined at age 19. I was drawn to the search-and-rescue aspect of the Coast Guard, Lombardi said. I wanted to save lives while being on the water, and I knew going boatswains mate would be the best route for me.After attending boat swains mate school in Yorktown, Va., Lombardi received orders to Coast Guard Station Brunswick, Ga.I was far away from my family and friends, but I was on the water. Thats what kept me going. Lombardi said. I was doing search-and-rescue, so no matter how much I was homesick, the job kept me focused on the mission.After being stationed in Brunswick, Lombardi received orders to head to Miami, where she maintained records and charts for the Aids to Navigation program of the Waterways Management Division. I enjoyed the people I worked with, but I missed the operational atmosphere you experience at a small-boat station or on a Coast Guard cutter, Lombardi said.After four years in Miami, Lombardi got her first pick on her orders to help commission the Coast Guards newest cutter, the Charles Sexton, homeported in Key West.I was in shock when I received my orders to the Charles Sexton said Lombardi. It was my No. 1 pick on my list, and I am getting the privilege to become a plank owner of a Coast Guard cutter. Lombardi reported to Lockport, La., to meet up with the new crew and get the cutter ready for Key West. Upon arrival, Lombardi met Petty Officer 1st Class Andrew Bowe, who had been declared an honorary Conch. We hit it off right away, Bowe said. We started reminiscing about the Keys, and we both were excited to go back to our roots and patrol in familiar waters.Both Bowe and Lombardis job entails them to be in the pilot house when mooring and unmooring the cutter in port.Both petty officers are a huge asset to the crew because of their local knowledge of the area, said Lt. j.g. Graham Sherman, the Charles Sextons executive officer. The water depths change drastically down here, and they both bring a lot to the table when it comes to navigating safely.The Coast Guard plans to commission the cutter Charles Sexton in Key West today.It hasnt really hit me yet that I am going to be one of the original plank owners of this cutter, Lombardi said. I get to stand before my family and friends in my hometown and take ownership of the Charles Sexton .We have been working around the clock to ensure that we are ready to perform the Coast Guards mission once commissioned, Bowe said. The entire crew is dedicated to honoring Charles Sexton and we do that with our dedication to duty and through the sacrifices we make to ensure the mission is complete.

Under a contract they sign in seventh grade, Take Stock students agree to stay crimeand drug-free, maintain good grades and get involved in community service. They also meet once a week with a mentor.If successful through graduation from high school, they are rewarded with a scholarship good for two years at one of Floridas 28 community colleges, followed by two years at one of the 12 state colleges or universities. The educations are financed through public and private money invested in the Florida Prepaid College Foundation.Over the programs 13-year Keys history, 435 students have earned scholarships.The Golf Marathon was at Florida Keys Country Club in Marathon. The $50,000 will be matched by Florida Prepaid, and will fund three four-year scholarships.During the Marathon, played from 7:30 a.m. to sundown, golfers each raised a minimum of $1,000 in pledges. The winner raising the most money was, for the second year in a row, Donna Van Kirk of Marathon, with $10,250. The second-place winner was Father Tony Mullane of St. Peter Catholic Church on Big Pine Key, with $8,100 in pledges.The most holes played went to David Rodriguez, who played 251 holes.Van Kirk again wins challengeMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Donna Van Kirk raised the most money and won a cruise. everyone. The easiest way to pull off a new trend is to ease into it. If youre trying out an on-trend color, try it in an accessory, like shoes or a necklace instead of a head-to-toe ensemble.SelfieThe advent of social media has led to the popularity of the selfie. Yes, its absurd and a bit egocentric, but take one look at a group of girls in public and youll likely find one of them holding their camera phone out to take a picture of themselves. To take a good selfie, follow these steps:Lips are important. Add some lipstick and be sure to show us a great pout, as weve all been wondering what your lips look like before you try to kiss someone (insert sarcasm here).Place your arms away from your body. Arms hung away from your body will make you appear 20 pounds lighter. OK, not exactly 20 pounds, but it will make you appear slimmer.Take multiple shots. Taking multiple shots, especially if its a group selfie, will ensure youll capture the perfect shot of everyone. It may take you 20 takes, but at least no one leaves crying. There is no crying when taking selfies.Stay true to yourself and have fun with fashion, even if it means ending up on the worst-dressed list. Leah Maki is a fashionobsessed style blogger.

USDA adds foods to programPregnant women, mothers and children who get federal assistance with their grocery bills will now be able to buy more wholegrain foods, yogurt, fish, fruits and vegetables.The changes to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Pro gram for Women, Infants, and Children, known as WIC, will go into place by next year.The Agriculture Depart ment announced the changes last Friday as the final part of a process it began in 2007 to overhaul the program and greatly expand the number of healthy foods offered. Changes announced that year and put in place in 2009 eliminated many fruit juices from infant food packages, reduced saturated fats the program covered and made buying fruits and vegetables easier.The USDA says that overhaul will now be complete with a few more items included, such as whole grain pastas, yogurt and additional types of canned fish. The rule also newly allows fresh fruits and vegetables for older babies when mothers do not want to feed them jarred baby food. The final rule also allows for an increase in the value of vouchers for fruits and vegetables. The USDA reaffirmed its decision not to allow white potatoes in the program, a move that the potato industry has vigorously fought.The Agriculture Depart ment said it will continue to eliminate white potatoes from the list of eligible foods because people already eat enough of them and vouchers arent needed to buy more.The department recognizes that white potatoes can be a healthful part of ones diet, the USDA wrote in the rule. However, WIC food packages are carefully designed to address the supplemental nutritional needs of a specific population. The potato industry responded swiftly after the rule was released, saying there is no scientific reason to exclude white potatoes, which are popular, healthy and economical for families who are already struggling to get as many nutrients as possible on a limited budget. The WIC program provides vouchers to mothers and pregnant women who qualify for the program and specifically lists the foods they can buy. The program annually serves around 9 million people, about half of them children. Sam Kass, director of first lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move initiative to combat childhood obesity, said WIC has been one of our greatest success stories. He credited the programs changes to give mothers and children access to healthier foods.Healthier diet is the goal of expansionBy MARY CLARE JALONICKAssociated PressNUTRITIONAssociated Press photo by SCOTT APPLEWHITEPregnant women, mothers and children who get federal assistance with their grocery bills will now be able to buy more whole-grain foods, yogurt, fish, fruits and vegetables.
