Council: Turnover no concernMajor upheaval at the highest levels of Marathon city government the past two months doesnt appear to concern city officials.City Building Official Bennett Cinquegrana was fired by interim City Manager Mike Puto on Friday in what Puto called a performancebased decision. It was the fourth high-level departure since mid-January.On Jan. 13, then-City Manager Roger Hernstadt was hired to be city manager of Marco Island. His last official day in the Keys was Jan. 30.Then-Councilwoman Ginger Snead, a vocal Hernstadt supporter, resigned at the close of the Feb. 25 City Council meeting. She left reportedly to accept a job offer in Jacksonville; she offered no public reason. Former Councilman John Bartus was appointed to fill out the rest of her term, which expires in November. On March 11, Vice Mayor Chris Bull called for the city to remove longtime City Attorney John Herin from his post. The council approved it, 3-1, with Councilman Rich Keating dissenting. For now, the city will keep Herins law firm, GrayRobinson. Councilman Mark Sen martin pointed out that Cinquegrana was a major talking point during his campaign last fall. He was unqualified, Senmartin said. Hernstadt told me straight out that he had pressure to hire him. He knew he wasnt the right guy for the job but he also knew there were three votes. Cinquegrana was hired on Sept. 24, 2012, and earned $80,000 annually. Hes been replaced by John Woodson, who was hired in the Building Department on Oct. 14, 2013, and earns $72,800.

They were thrilled with sightings of nurse sharks, iguanas and lobsters.VACATION WITH A PURPOSEFormer officer Arroyo bonds outHenry Arroyo, a former Key West Police Department resource officer at Key West High School, is set for arraignment April 10 following his Monday arrest on child sex-abuse charges. Specifics werent available Tuesday, but Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Colleen Dunne said she and Assistant State Attorney Val Winter would handle the prosecution.

George Neugent said Tuesday that his decision to run is not yet final. Its a situation where if I do decide to run, I need to be in a position to run, said Neugent, 65. The incumbent said after his wife came down with a serious illness, he expected his current term to be his last. As she has recovered, Neugent said, shes given me the green light. Friends have badgered me to throw my hat in the ring for one more, Neugent said. And there are some loose ends that need to be tied up. The deadline for filing campaign papers for the Aug. 26 primary election is June 20. Cudjoe Key businessman Danny Coll, 55, filed to run for the District 2 seat in February. Both Neugent and Coll are Republicans. The other County Commission seat up for election in 2014 is the District 4 position. Incumbent Commissioner David Rice, a Republican, has filed for re-election.

been issued, Care/American would have been required, according to its contract, to continue providing ambulance service at no cost to the city until a transition was made, according to a number of city officials and the document. Care/American counted on directly billing customers to make money. Asked for a legal analysis Monday, City Attorney Shawn Smith declined comment and passed the question to City Manager Bob Vitas; Vitas in turn said former Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan (he resigned as of last month) and Fire Department Division Chief Mike Davila led the staff work related to the contract. We brought that up when we were discussing the path we were going to take last year, Davila said. It was the feeling at the time of Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan that we would not be able to invoke the lame-duck provision because we did not actively pursue an RFP in time. We couldnt force them to stay on for zero subsidy without at least going out to secure that RFP earlier. He said more detailed questions are above my pay grade.Vitas couldnt be reached for comment; Tuesday, he was at the Florida Keys Day lobbying event in Tallahassee.Care/American, formerly Lifestar, replaced American Medical Response in Key West in 2011 at no cost to the city. Subsidies for AMR topped $650,000 a year, largely based on uncollectible ambulance rides for homeless people. The estimated cost of bringing the service in house is $650,000 one time, then about $1.5 million each year, Davila said. City Commissioner Teri Johnston said she became aware of the contract provision calling for a free extension of service after the fact. Im concerned that this was not addressed earlier.Last week, the commission approved the $45,000 subsidy for no more than 12 months at a cost not to exceed $540,000 in taxpayer money. Commissioner Tony Yaniz was the lone dissenting vote.I am the Key West Fire Departments biggest fan, Yaniz said of a potential transition to a city operation. I voted no because I felt this item wasnt fully vetted and I needed to understand why our city manager didnt exercise the lame-duck clause that cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars. Local Care/American staff referred questions to Charles Maymon, regional chief executive officer, who couldnt be reached for comment Tuesday. When the commission next meets on April 1, a consultant will present an analysis of bringing the 911 service in house. That meeting is set to begin at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.Lapse to cost $45K monthlyFrom Ambulance, 1A KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday, March 26, 2014 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW WED.7266 THURS.8073 FRI.8475 SAT.8675 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers.For the extended forecast visitKeysInfoNet.com/weather.The Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

They left together around 3 a.m., and the victim told deputies thats when Marlowe attacked him, knocking him unconscious. The victim reportedly told Marlowe he needed medical help, and Marlowe reportedly got the victims cell phone and dropped it on him so he could call for help. Marlowe then rode away on a bicycle. He was found Monday afternoon around mile marker 87 and arrested for aggravated battery.

For information regarding this report call Nancy Munoz at 295-2231. Published Keynoter 3-26-14of [contractors] that were concerned about the ways things were being done, specifically regarding written notifications for violations Cinquegrana found.You need to notify them in writing and specify your actions in writing, and if youre going to do a stop-work order, it has to be in writing, Puto said. I weighed everything and made my decision accordingly and he was noticed last Friday. Senmartin said highlevel changes in the local government were bound to happen given the outcome of his election. In November, he received far more votes than two other candidates, former Mayor Pete Worthington and Keating (Keating was elected since there were two seats up for election). I see it as a good thing. I wasnt happy with Roger and Ben, and Ginger wasnt on my Christmas list either, Senmartin said. I think everything is changing a little bit and people are tired of the way things were and its going to carry into the next election. Its going to be up to the new guys stepping up to carry the city forward. Mayor Dick Ramsay, who supported Senmartin during his campaign, agreed. I personally think a lot of the changes were absolutely in the citys best interest, he said. I understand potential apprehension, but change happens. In my opinion, all the changes have been in the citys best interest.When theres a change in management, usually it means a lot of the internal staffing will tend to leave or be replaced, Bull said. We all knew after this past election that change was going to happen. Whether it was going to be forced by the [council] or naturally, I think a combination of both is happening.Bull recommended replacing Herin shortly after Herin came under fire due to bad legal advice he all but admitted giving when it came to Hernstadts departure. Herin agreed to refund the city $3,000 that Hernstadt was paid in Marathon after accepting the Marco Island job.Herin is supposed to introduce the council to GrayRobinson attorneys that could take his place, but Bull said hes yet to do so. The city is also exploring the idea of an in-house attorney. Saturday, the Miami Herald reported that Herin was fired last week as Dorals city attorney for giving bad legal advice, which he denied. He and GrayRobinson were replaced by the firm of Weiss, Serota, which in previous years represented Marathon and Islamorada. Bartus said he doesnt believe any of the recent changes were related to one another. The timing has been interesting to say the least, but I dont see it as an overarching conspiracy, he said.Turnover not seen as concernFrom Marathon 1AHe was released the same day after paying 10 percent of a $100,000 bond and turning in his passport.The allegedly victim is now 14, and the abuse started when she was 10, according to an arrest affidavit released by the State Attorneys Office.The reported victim said Arroyo would enter her bed at night and force her to touch his [genitals], according to the affidavit. She also told investigators Arroyo would touch her breasts and attempted to touch her genitals, according to the document.The youth initially reported the alleged abuse to a physical education teacher at school, according to the affidavit, but was afraid to tell. When telling her parents of the alleged abuse, the child was in a posture where her legs were pulled up to her chest and she was holding a pillow up to her chin and throat area, according to the affidavit. When confronted by a friend or family member, Arroyo reportedly cried and would not say anything.Arroyo earned $49,036 per year. He was hired in 1999 and resigned in April 2011. During that time, Arroyo moved to Tampa with the victim, her sibling and her mother, according to the arrest form.He was rehired by the Key West Police Depart ment in December that same year after moving back to the Keys. Arroyos personnel file doesnt include any reprimands. In 2000, the Federal Bureau of Investigation recognized him for exceptional service in the public interest, and in 2006 he was named officer of the quarter, police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Peary Fowler signed an arrest warrant for Arroyo on March 21.Former cop out on bailFrom Arroyo, 1A ARROYOCouncil in no rush with manager searchThe Marathon City Council hasnt exactly been in a hurry to hire a city manager since appointing lifetime Middle Keys resident Mike Puto to the position on an interim basis on Jan. 22.More than two months have passed since then-City Manager Roger Hernstadt quit to become Marco Islands top administrator, and the council has yet to even discuss approving a job description specifying what salary and benefits package its willing to offer prospective managers.In fact, newly appointed Councilman John Bartus said people are writing into City Hall and are making the case to help keep Mike on. Puto was the city manager from 2005 to 2008. The council was adamant when choosing an interim manager that whomever was chosen would not be considered for the full-time position. Some may be wavering on that stance. Mike does enjoy a lot of support in the community, Bartus said, pointing out that the city has pressing issues like a proposed new city hall and budget season to deal with. Theres interesting topics the city is tackling, he said. At this point, all options are on the table and the council needs to come to a consensus of where we want to go as a city and if City Hall is being run in an efficient manner. Mayor Dick Ramsay also pointed to construction of a new city hall and other issues as having priority over a manager search.I dont think theres been a holdup, he said. Theres been so many issues the council has had to address with some of the changes that have been happening in the city. Staff is really happy, so from a personal standpoint, Im not pushing [a search] at all.Vice Mayor Chris Bull said he believes the council will discuss the managers job description at its April 8 meeting.I think the next step is at the 8th meeting, well approve all the deadlines and ranking criteria, he said. In the beginning of May, we would get all the applications and then cull the list down to a small amount wed bring down here and interview personally.Councilman Mark Senmartin said Puto is doing a good job but added that he still expects a search for Putos replacement to begin sooner than later.He knew kind of what the deal was going into it, he said. Him handling it the way he is takes away the sense of urgency for me a little bit. Puto is making $10,000 per month as interim manager.Members say Puto doing fine in the interimBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONMurder trial in 2nd weekProsecutors on Tuesday continued to make their case against Peter Erik Hedvall, accused of a brutal 2011 murder during Fantasy Fest in Key West. Opening arguments in the first-degree murder case (prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty) were given March 19 and the case has been ongoing since. Hedvall, 28, is accused of killing Jonathon Alvarado, a former server at La Trattoria Beachside who was 32 when he died, on Oct. 28, 2011. Alvarado was found dead under a truck at 1019 Grinnell St., down the block from Dons Million Dollar Bar. The Monroe County Medical Examiners Office ruled the death came from blunt trauma to the head, likely with a rock found nearby the body. Tuesday, assistant Monroe County state attorneys Val Winter and Christine Poist continued questioning witnesses, with the trial slated to continue this week. In his opening argument, Winter told jurors that Alvarado was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Police reports say the night of the killing, witnesses at Dons saw Alvarado wearing angel wings and Hedvall was seen in a lightcolored suit. Both were costumes for the annual 10-day Fantasy Fest bacchanal. Winter said Hedvall strangled Alvarado before bashing his head with a 25pound coral rock. I want to emphasize again two different types of attacks: The blow to Jonathans head shattered his skull. Friday, defense attorney Jason Smith objected to Winter entering into evidence graphic pictures of Alvarados head wound, calling the photos unduly prejudicial. Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller, presiding in Courtroom A of the Freeman Justice Center, overruled Smith but directed Winter not to show the photographs again. But the jurors might be able to look at them again at a later time, perhaps in deliberations. Smith, along with cocounsels Alan Fowler and Jiulio Margalli, maintain Hedvalls innocence. He has put his faith in you, Smith told the jury. You dont want to compound [Alvarados death] with another tragedy of convicting an innocent man, Smith said. He pointed out what he called instances of sloppy, incomplete police work in describing the states circumstantial case. There was a rush to judgment, Smith said. This occurred during the busiest weak of the year, when law enforcement is stretched to the maximum. Tuesday, Winter went through detailed testimony related to the testing of DNA evidence. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement analyst said DNA taken from the clothing Hedvall allegedly wore the night of the murder was a match for Alvarado.

Key Largo eyed for mooringThe Lower Keys anchorage in Boca Chica Basin sorely needs a managed mooring field but Key Largos Buttonwood Sound might be the most likely anchorage to get one.Those were the conclusions of a mooring-field feasibility study detailed to Monroe County commissioners at their March 19 meeting in Marathon. Commissioners then gave staff approval to seek a more detailed environmental analysis of the Upper Keys water body off mile marker 99. Any final decision or development could be at least two years away. Buttonwood Sound emerged as the most viable site from among three study sites, largely unregulated areas where boaters now drop anchor, says a report by Coastal Systems Inter national, a West Palm Beach consulting firm. Boaters have already found the safe anchorages, said Penny Cutt, regional manager for the consultant. Sufficient water depths and plenty of room make the bayside Buttonwood Sound attractive for establishing a mooring field that can hold 100 vessels of varying sizes, Cutt said.A mooring field charges rent to use a permanent mooring structure rather than let boaters set their own anchors. One of the largest in the Keys is in Boot Key Harbor, run by the city of Marathon.Managers at two waterfront businesses on Buttonwood Sound, identified as the Point of View RV Resort and the Dream Bay Resort, said they would consider providing oversight and on-shore support facilities under a management agreement with the county, the report says. Currently about two dozen boats anchor in Buttonwood Sound.Is it the intent to concentrate all the anchorages on Key Largo into Buttonwood Sound? asked Dottie Moses, president of the Island of Key Largo Federation of Home owners Associations.Creating a mooring field starting at 100, with the potential for expansion, that kind of alarmed me, Moses said. Residents and businesses in the area may object to such a large number. Moses, the only member of the public to speak on the topic March 19, said she would support a smaller mooring field.Buttonwood Sounds large areas of healthy seagrasses could complicate state permitting for a mooring field there, the consultant and county staff acknowledged.Meanwhile, Boca Chica Basin, on the oceanside near mile marker 6, generally holds from 60 to 80 anchored vessels at various times. The basin has become notorious for derelict vessels, and has suffered seagrass damage from anchoring.Boca Chica is the one that needs regulation and needs a mooring field as bad or worse than the others, Commis sioner Danny Kolhage said.Boca Chica currently has the most boating-related impacts and we would like to do something about it, said Rich Jones, county marine resources administrator.However, shallow water depths and the lack of any available operation offering waterfront support pose huge obstacles. Current marine businesses along the Boca Chica Basin do not have an interest in future partnership with the county to provide shoreside services for a managed mooring field, the report says. Weve got a nuisance situation at Boca Chica, Com missioner George Neugent said. To build a mooring field there would be creating a problem for ourselves.But Boca Chica in Lower Keys also consideredBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Wednesday, March 26, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Truman Avenue, between Jose Marti Drive and Georgia Street OUTDOOR TABLES AND BENCHES TO ENJOY GREAT FOOD ON SITEHUGE PRODUCE DISPLAYFRESH FRUITS VEGETABLES ORGANIC VEGAN GLUTEN FREEPALIO HEALTHY FOODS SMALL BUSINESSES JEWELRY CRAFTS SEAFOOD CHEESES BAKERY PASTRY DESSERTS BREADS AMAZING FOOD FINDSFor more information call 561-929-0237www.shopgreenmarkets.comThursday March 279:00 AM to 2:00 PMEvery other Thursday at Bayview Park in Key West KEY WESTGREEN MARKET G RAND O PENIN G Stars of the Grand Opera Stage Perform in Key Largo$50 VIP Reserved Seating & $30 General Admission Purchase Tickets at www.keystix.com Telephone Sales at 305-295-7676 St. Justin Martyr Church, 105500 Overseas Hwy, Key LargoSponsored by Keys Ahead Inc, a 501c3 Organization March 31st, 7:30pmSt. Justin Martyr Catholic Church Key Largo THREE TENORS and a SOPRANO What is your life worth?Find out if you are at risk for vascular Heart disease!Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring.

It was great catch and a great price, Jeff Cramer, a Conch Key lobster fisherman for nearly four decades, said Tuesday. I think its pretty much universal that it was the highest dollar price anybody here ever had.A demand for live lobster, coupled with a strong harvest, rewarded the Keys commercial trap fleet after low catches in the 2012-13 season.The big news is the high price for lobsters paid to the fishermen, said Tom Matthews, associate research scientist at the states Fish and Wildlife Research Institute office in Marathon. As the eight-month season winds down, the spring prices paid by buyers for live lobsters sold to the Asian market may hit $16 per pound or higher. The Chinese have a live [lobster] market that can and will pay the higher price, Cramer said. The frozen market cannot compete with the prices for live lobster.Most of the 650 licensed Monroe County trap fishermen have added additional live wells to their boats to ensure lobster are delivered alive.The Fish and Wildlife Research Institute calculates a weighted price for wholesale lobster prices that factors in the number of lobster sold at lower prices in the early season against higher prices paid in the late season.This is important be cause more lobsters are landed at the low price in August when the average price was $6.16 per pound, Matthews said. The high price for live lobsters late in the season is very high, but for a fairly few number of lobsters.An estimated 220,000 pounds have been sold at wholesale prices higher than $10 per pound, Matthews said.As of early March, records received by the Research Institute showed a harvest of 5.26 million pounds, with perhaps another 300,000 expected to be caught by the end of the season Monday. For the years since 2000, that counts as a good season, Matthews said. Before 2000, a good season was 7 million pounds, he said. We are catching fewer lobsters, but at a higher price. The Keys can support a successful live-lobster market since South Floridas international airports provide easy air transport to Asia, Cramer said. A lot of the smaller Caribbean countries that harvest lobster dont have that available, he said. Lobster ranks as the most important fishery to the Keys commercial fleet.Asian markets still fueling high pricesOUR FISHERIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Spiny lobster season ends Monday.

American casualties that day on what came to be known as Bloody Omaha were about 5,000 killed and wounded out of approximately 50,000 men who landed. Most of the casualties happened in the first few hours of the landings. The Germans suffered about 1,200 killed and wounded.Hal was a member of Troop E, Squadron A of the 109th Calvary Reconnaissance Group attached to the U.S. First Army, V Corps. From what I can tell, he was in the second wave that went ashore around 7 or 7:30 a.m. in an area called Fox Green near a heavily defended German position known as WN 62. Hal was a member of what has been described as the Greatest Generation, those men and women who went to war to save the world and then came home and resumed their lives. He was an authentic American hero and deserves to be remembered as such. Frank Hawkins IslamoradaNo more special treatmentThe time is long over due: Eliminate the Cuban Adjustment Act. It has been well over 20 years since Communist Cuba lost its 30 years of colonial protection from the now-defunct Soviet Union.In the last two decades, we no longer receive political refugees from nearby Cuba. What we get are regular migrant workers who should not get any preferential treatment when commuting regularly as economic migrants to the United States.Half the Cubans in this country arrived in the last 20 years and an entire third have arrived in the last 10 years. Cubans should be subject to the same migratory laws as any other nationality. They go back and forth to the same dictatorship that they claim they left due to persecution. Who would ever want to return to the same dictatorship that persecuted them? If any of them can prove that they are persecuted by their dictatorship, they can apply as political refugees like any other nationality does.Nowadays, Communist Cuba is a de facto colony of the United States. In the last 20 years, they began by receiving approximately $900 million a year in remittances and inflated government fees from Havanas regime. By last year, the figure had increased along the years to $3.7 billion and it is estimated that it will continue to increase this year to $5 billion, all of this with legal preferential treatment and protection by the so-called Cuban Adjustment Act. The Cuban regime depends on this to survive year to year. The time has come for Cubans to be treated like any other country south of the border that lives off remittances from their expatriates in the U.S. Let them be treated equally under the law.

How to fix Key WestAfter having lived in Key Weird I have to wonder why anyone goes there. There are so many problems in Key West. After much thought, I think Ive figured it out.First, you must be the type of person who likes to live on the edge. If you survive your first day, you will be rewarded with another day.Second, if you make it to Day 2, you can start looking for employment. Good luck. If you dont have a permanent address, you will not be hired. The larger resorts/hotels would rather hire eastern Europeans here on a six-month visa, pay them squat, pack them in three or four to a room and charge them for it.Third, until you are lucky enough to find employment, you will probably live in your vehicle, at the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter or on the street. Either way, you will be harassed, looked down upon, reviled, accused of being an alcoholic or drug addict, continually harassed by the Key West police.Fourth, if you are really lucky and find employment, you will not be able to afford to live in Key West.The City Commission accomplishes little to improve life on Key West. There is the cruise-ship controversy going on for years. Destroy more of the reef to benefit certain members of the commission, or dump the cruise ships and save the reef and waters around Key West?Then you have the Truman Water front. Twelve-plus years and nothing accomplished. You will also have the tree cops telling you not to trim trees, the BS about loud music on Duval Street. You have too many restrictions on codes. And the wars about sewage and the burning of yard waste. So what are the solutions to these problems?Disband the Key West Police Depart ment and let the county take care of Key West like they do most of the other keys. Stop hiring non-U.S. citizens; there are many homeless who want a job.Stop voting for anyone who has an interest in the tourist industry (they only care about their bank account, not whats best for Key West). Dump the cruise ships (they dont spend that much money and only benefit a select few).Build the park at Truman. Designate a place for vehicles to park overnight. Stop arguing about sewers and do whats best for the Keys. Make Duval Street pedestrian-only (except for early-morning deliveries). Forget about the noise ordinance (the bars were there when you moved in, deal with it). So will any of this ever happen? I seriously doubt it. Kurt Wagner St. Thomas, V.I. (Formerly Key West)Open-air produce market coming on ThursdayA South Florida company called Green Markets on Thursday will set up its first outdoor produce and food bazaar in Bayview Park on Truman Avenue in Key West. Green Markets Manager Jason Hershin said the Boca Raton-based company hosts seven other markets around South Florida. We basically put on outdoor events that specialize in organic, conventional, exotic and Caribbean produce, he said. He said the markets attract from 30 to 60 local vendors. The plan for now is to offer the Key West market every two weeks, with the next one after Thursday planned for April 10 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Last year, some Key Westers tried to establish an open-air produce and craft market at the Truman Waterfront but it didnt last long. In Marathon, whats called the Incredible Fruit Stand, an outdoor market, opens each Saturday in front of Crane Point Hammock at mile marker 50. Hershin said the decision for Green Markets to expand into the Southernmost City came after a visit to area supermarkets. I saw the prices and it threw me off a little bit, he said. And I saw the variety that was being offered and not really many choices. He said shoppers can expect organic produce prices more than 40 percent lower than at chain stores. I want to give them the ability to source products locally instead of driving three or four hours into Miami. That defeats the purpose, he said. Youre going to see certified organic produce and youre going to see conventional produce: Salad-type stuff, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, all that. Then weve got exotic and Caribbean fruits, mangoes, star fruits, all kinds of unique items, Hershin said. Other offerings include local honey, jams, jellies, organ empanadas, homemade sauces, seasonings and marinades. Hershin said the market will even be equipped to take orders from local restaurants for delivery every two weeks. His Green Market sites are in Doral, Boca Raton, Coral Springs, West Palm Beach, Aventura and Abacoa, near Jupiter.Bayview Park will be site every two weeksBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Boca Raton-based Green Markets will set up its first produce market on Thursday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Bayview Park in Key West.State can no longer be blind to children dying under DCFs eyeWhat a difference a day makes. Especially when on that day a newspaper publishes a mosaic of beautiful children. Scores and scores of them with dimpled, smiling, laughing, heartbreakingly happy faces. All of them dead, from brutality, neglect and even a python. All of them known to the state Department of Children and Families, charged with being their salvation. The agency was anything but. But after just one day of the Miami Heralds series Innocents Lost, the lawmakers who for years have, with the blessing of governors past and present, siphoned life-saving funding and oversight from the agency, now declared fixing DCF Job No. 1. Well see. Absolutely nothing will bring back Ashton-Lynette and Kaleb, Ulysses or Tariji, or the rest of the almost 500 children and youths whose tragic deaths were chronicled last week in the Herald. If DCF continues to deny, as Interim Secretary Esther Jacobo has, that DCF is broken, then there is no chance there wont be hundreds of other children who will be slaughtered one way or another while DCF remains derelict.Jacobo, as a temporary chief, has no reason to pull her punches and she shouldnt. She knows better, because she is far better more capable and compassionate than her predecessor, who didnt seem to get it.So when she says DCF is merely challenged, she undercuts the devastating seriousness of the agencys problems so many of which preceded her tenure. Of course, this is not her responsibility alone. Solutions, if not easy, are obvious:Family preservation must no longer be the one and only priority. How many children were bludgeoned, starved, smothered and tortured to death by drug-addled mothers, enraged boyfriends and alcoholic dads who signed a piece of paper DCF handed them and swore theyd morph into Ward and June Cleaver?Compel troubled parents to get the services they need, and then make sure those services are provided but first and foremost, get the children who are at risk of being harmed the most out. Child-abuse investigators should be required to file a court petition to order a parent into drug treatment or anger management. Court orders get even a meth heads attention.One egregiously consistent thread that connected so many of these tragedies are the child-protection workers who would accept an addicted parents vow to improve. Yes, there are caseworkers who are saving lives because theyre experienced, think critically and skeptically to make informed decisions. This needs to be the rule, not the exception.Independent oversight has been written out of the picture. The results are clear there are at least 477 of them. In fact, the Herald unearthed an undercount of reported child deaths, which the agencys lack of transparency aided and abetted.And yes, more money for caseworkers, better tracking and monitoring technology and services. Miami Herald
Breakfast is now being served with a side of sticker shock.The price of bacon is surging and the cost of other morning staples, like coffee and orange juice, is set to rise because of global supply problems, from drought in Brazil to disease on U.S. pig farms.And its not just the first meal of the day thats being affected. The cost of meats, fish and eggs led the biggest increase in U.S. food prices in nearly 2.5 years last month, according to government data. An index that tracks those foods rose 1.2 percent in February and has climbed 4 percent over the last 12 months. While overall inflation remains low, the increases in food prices are forcing shoppers to search out deals and cut back. Even though food companies use a range of cost-cutting methods to limit the effect of higher food costs, consumers will likely feel the ripple effects of rising commodity prices, according to the Grocery Manufacturers Association, a trade organization for more than 300 food, beverage and consumer product companies. Heres a rundown of why breakfast food costs are rising, and why they could keep going up.BaconBringing home the bacon is costing more.The price of lean pork in the futures market is at record levels and is up 52 percent since the start of the year, to $1.31 a pound. Traders are concerned about a deadly virus in the U.S. hog population.That could further boost bacon prices, which were already rising after farmers cut pig production because of higher feed costs. Those cost climbed after a drought in 2012. The average price of a pound of sliced bacon in U.S. cities was $5.46 in February, up from $4.83 a year earlier and $3.62 five years ago, government data shows. The retail price of pork is projected to climb by 2.5 percent to 3 percent this year, according to government forecasts. You should expect to see very high prices for your ground beef, your other meat cuts. All the pork cuts will be higher this year, Donnie Smith, chief executive officer of Tyson Foods, said in an interview with CNBC on March 12. U.S. pig herds have been hit by a virus called porcine epidemic diarrhea, or PED, which causes vomiting and diarrhea in the animals. After the first case in the U.S. was confirmed in May, the virus spread through hog herds during the cold winter. While the disease doesnt affect people and is not a food safety concern, it can lead to mortality rates of between 80 and 100 percent in newborn piglets. Thats raising concerns of thinner herds as the U.S. heads toward the summer grilling season, when demand typically picks up.CoffeeYou need your morning brew, and youll likely pay more for it, at least at the supermarket. Coffee futures have surged 57 percent this year and this month rose above $2 a pound for the first time in two years. Coffee growing regions of southern Brazil, the worlds largest coffee producer, have been hit by drought. Analysts are forecasting that Brazils crop could shrink by about 20 percent this year. Shoppers should be prepared to pay more at grocery stores if the current trend continues for more than a month, says Dan Cox, president of Coffee Analysts, a company that tests coffee quality for retailers.The average price of coffee for U.S. cities was $5 a pound in February, although that was little changed from a month earlier, according to government data.Orange juiceSay squeeze when you pass the OJ. Orange juice futures are up 12 percent this year, and climbed as high as $1.57 a pound March 6, their highest price in two years.To be sure, moves in retail food prices wont match the wild jumps in commodities markets, says David Garfield, a consultant at AlixPartners, which advises food-makers. The reason: Food companies worry about losing market share and will absorb some of the higher costs.The price of a 12-ounce can of frozen orange juice edged up in February to $2.43 from $2.41 in January, according to government data.

The city of Marathons Charter Review Committee finalized recommended changes Monday to the document that oversees all aspects of city government. Created by the City Council in January to offer suggestions on how to best tweak the 15-year-old charter, the committee met four times to compile its list. Many changes were minor, but the five-member panel spent the majority of those meetings discussing council elections and the length of council terms, and council members interference with city staff, which is not allowed. Marathon resident Linda Berrigan replaced John Bartus on the committee for Mondays final meeting because on March 11, the council appointed Bartus to fill the council seat of Ginger Snead, who resigned Feb. 25. Bartus will serve until the November election. Monday, the committee approved wholesale changes to how city elections are held. It unanimously recommended moving them back to March and reinstituting individual seats rather than atlarge voting, as was the case until 2007. Committee members Frank Greenman and Jason Koler originally argued that voter turnout is higher in November but went along with the change as proposed on Monday. Reinstituting specific seats would do away with the current at-large format, under which the top two or three vote-getters win election. If specific seats are brought back, they would just be designations rather than by geographic boundaries. The majority of the committees final meeting was spent discussing the main reason it was created in the first place: Figuring a way to punish council members who violate the charter by interfering with city staffs dayto-day business. The charter says council members must go through the city manager, not staff, when issues arise.City Attorney John Herin told the committee he discussed the subject at length with the Chief Assistant State Attorney Manny Madruga.He indicated to me that the State Attorneys Office would not be putting anything in writing or taking a formal written position, Herin said.If you look in [state statutes], you cannot find a definition of malfeasance and find a corresponding statement saying malfeasance is a violation of state law, Herin said.To remedy that, Herin crafted language that more clearly defines interference and malfeasance and offers corresponding state statutes by which it could be punished. The Charter Review Committees recommendations will be presented to the council at a future meeting. Any changes to the charter require voter approval via referendum, with the lone exception being when council elections are held.

The snowmans hat says Islamorada on it. Rate relief is now officialPresident Obama signed into law Friday a bill that will provide National Flood Insurance Program rate relief to thousands of Keys property owners. The U.S. House approved the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act on March 4 in an overwhelming 306-91 vote. The Senate followed suit on March 13, approving the law by a 72-22 margin. The bill (H.R. 3370) is meant to mitigate exponential rate increases that were the result of the 2012 Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012.The Insurance Affordability Act offers protection mainly to primary homeowners, not the owners of second homes and commercial properties.Enacted on Oct. 1, BiggertWaters was aimed at stabilizing the $24 billion National Flood Insurance Program deficit. The program is under the Federal Emergency Management Agency.But the law was rife with unintended consequences. A major positive in the new law is language by which the House urges FEMA to restrict policies from having annual premiums that exceed 1 percent of the total coverage. Almost every Keys mortgage holder depends on subsidized NFIP rates for affordable flood coverage that caps out at $250,000. That means the highest annual premium for Keys property owners could be $2,500. The House version repeals Biggert-Waters provisions regarding home sales and applying for new policies. A sale or new policy purchase were removed as triggers for rate hikes. In addition, buyers inherit the last existing rate paid by a seller and depending on the type of property, settle into rate increase scales for either primary homes or secondary and commercial properties.Obama signs law countering Biggert-WatersBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFLOOD INSURANCE Visit our online photo galleries and submit your own atKeys InfoNet.com

Canes strong as break startsYoung players delivered as the baseball Hurricanes of Coral Shores High picked up two wins before Spring Break. The Canes (9-8) outscored Palmer Trinity, 5-2, on the road Thursday before edging Dade Christian, 2-1, Friday at home. We added two wins before the break so things look pretty good, head coach Pat Meyers said. A lot of our young guys are playing good baseball, he said. Were a little further ahead at this point than we expected at the beginning of the season. The 2-1 victory over Dade Christian stands as proof of progress. Dades Crusaders topped Coral Shores, 12-1, in the season opener. Freshman pitcher Jose Lima threw a four-hitter with eight strikeouts Friday to beat Dade Christian. Sophomore outfielder Dalton Falcucci delivered an RBI hit that scored Daryl Chou and Kyle Gates for the deciding runs. It was an all-around effort in a really good defensive game, Meyers said of the one-error outing. Fernando Garcia had a strong game at shortstop. On Thursday, sophomore first baseman Chris OBerry tagged a two-run single up the middle in the South Florida Baseball Conference decision over Palmer. Garcia had two hits, and Kyle Gates cracked an RBI single in the seven-hit attack. Mound ace Will Goodwin, a junior, struck out seven Falcons in his six innings, allowing two runs. Goodwin also had two hits at the plate. Two insurance runs in the fifth inning gave Coral Shores breathing room as the Canes improved to 6-1 in conference play.

Merritt Islands Mustangs avenged a 9-3 loss to the Conchs on Friday night. Saturday night, the Conchs blew a 3-0 lead and were buried under the visitors six-run sixth-inning barrage. Key West went into the inning with a 3-2 lead and called upon relief pitcher Steven Wells to save the game for starter Brandon Presley. Wells got the first batter, but then allowed five hits. All six runs scored after two were out, and two came in on a throwing error by shortstop Greg Veliz. Errors there were five in all also led to the Mustangs first two runs, one by third baseman Hunter Sellers in the third and one by Veliz in the fifth. The Conchs took their lead in the second. After Hugo Valdez walked and Darren Miller singled, both scored when pitcher Ryan Lang threw wildly to first base on a sacrifice bunt by Presley. Chris Varela then drove in the third run with a single.

The shutout came after the Dolphins lost, 6-2, to Canterbury School on Saturday and 8-0 on Thursday to Coral Springs Charter School, which the Dolphins played on their way out west. The trip was good and the girls came together and are playing well at this point, coach Sean McDonald said. Thursdays loss to Coral Springs came largely due to the Dolphins struggles defensively. They committed nine errors. Jordan Roney pitched a complete game with five strikeouts, five walks and six hits. Just two of Coral Springs eight runs were earned, McDonald said. Roney and Amanda Bruland were each 2-for-3 at the plate, while Savannah Rodamer and Sacha Olivera each had one hit.Saturday was an even tougher test, as the Dolphins faced the defending Class-2A state champions in Canterbury.Marathon led 2-1 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning but the Cougars tied it in the bottom half and scored four runs in the sixth to pull away. We had four errors, but there were some costly ones late, McDonald said. Brandi Spalten, Rachel Philcox, Roney and Bruland each had a hit. Philcox had a triple and one RBI.

Instead, theyre cruising the depths anywhere from 250 to 650 feet, and more than a few have been found just a couple miles inshore of the humps. The past few days, sailfish were found under frigate birds working weed lines and were receptive to larger live baits, such as pilchards, goggle eyes and small blue runners. At first, anglers thought they were dolphin until they realized it was schools of sails balling small, anchovylike baitfish under grass.The dolphin action is sporadic; however, the blackfin tuna bite is significantly improved, with many fish in the 10to 15-pound range and quite a few in the 20s.

Colin Hetzler has played tennis for Key West High School for three years, roaming the discolored, mildewed courts over which jets roar. The teams captain but never a main-court star, he has persevered at No. 3 or No. 4 singles and has helped the Conchs win matches with his doubles play. A slight figure in a red uniform, with hair flowing down to his large sunglasses, Hetzler found himself Friday afternoon as the only senior at the last home match of the season (two others were out of town and a third had quit). Unlike in other sports, there was no senior day and, as usual, there were only a handful of adult spectators and no fellow students on hand. Nothing we can do about that, Hetzler said as he waited for the matches to begin.Hes a great captain, said No. 1 singles player Chris Bujak. He has an organizational pattern [in practice] that works really well.Hetzler, whose father is in the Air Force, will soon move to Oklahoma, where he will attend the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Key West, he has lived in Utah, Washington, D.C., Panama City and Italy. When he leaves, he will take his most cherished court memory a doubles victory this season at the Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne. Soon it was time for his No. 4 singles match against Felipe Piniero of talent-rich La Salle High. Fashioning a strong forehand with his parents watching from behind a green fence, Hetzler lost a long first game, but battled back to trail, 3-2. Im playing probably the best Ive played all season, he said during the changeover. Piniero won the next three games, but Hetzler came back with three of his own, the third after tailing 0-40. Im not giving up, he said. For more on this story, go to www.KeysInfoNet.com.

There are a few muttons and mackerel in the same areas.Glass minnows, ballyhoo and pieces of silversides are all working well on the reef. The ceros eat smaller pilchards and ballyhoo, while the kings like larger pilchards and smallish blue runners.Tarpon are beginning to show at the bridges. The best catches coincide with the stable weather. As we get into April, the tarpon will be more prevalent. Those with a need for bigfish action will find sharking to their liking. There are lots of spinners, blacktips, lemons, bulls and even a few scalloped hammerheads out there. All are great fun when match with light tackle.The weeks bestMatt Greenwald, from Tavernier, barely survived St. Patricks Day to capture three tarpon off Indian Key with Capt. Chuck Brodzki. The largest weighed approximately 120 pounds, and all were caught on threadfin herring drifted back into the bridge channel. Capt. Diego Cordova of Flat Out Sportfishing says its been a good week on the flats for permit and bonefish fishing. His anglers caught permit up to 25 pounds, with small blue crabs suspended from floats doing the trick. The bonefish on the oceanside flats were up to 8 pounds. Cordova also reports tarpon fishing is responding to the warmer water temps. Capt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing out of the Hammocks in Marathon, reports the sailfish are swimming through the water of the Middle Keys. Theres also a few dolphin and tuna, but you have to run pretty far to find them. Inshore, there are plenty of snapper on the wrecks and reefs. The grouper bite is hot, too, but remember to release them. And there are some nice cobia, kingfish and amberjack back in the Gulf. The SeaSquared continued its tradition of family fishing for Spring Breakers from across the map, with loads of snappers coming back to the dock and landing on the dinner plates. We also had a few shark fishing adventures, with 14 being the high hook for Sam and Jake Greenberg from Boynton Beach. They landed and released 10 lemon sharks up to seven feet and hooked and lost another four spinners and lemons.Capt. Moe Mottice, and his team at Real Lucky Charters in Key West, had to work hard offshore to catch some dolphin and tuna. Tarpon fishing in the harbor was much better, with jacks, mackerel and snappers mixed in to keep their anglers busy waiting for the big bite.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.

He struck out eight batters and allowed four hits. The lone run he surrendered came on a balk.Leal said the Dolphins big inning was the second, when the boys plated eight runs and put the game out of reach early. DeLuca provided a three-run triple to right-center field that helped fuel that rally.That made it 6-1 and we just started rolling, Leal said.Friday was a different story against Seffner, a team Canterbury had earlier defeated this season. Kevin McKeon started and pitched five innings, while Carlos OFarrill pitched the sixth. Nothing went our way in that game, Leal said. We hit the ball really hard, but right at them, and made a few fielding errors. OFarrill, Kyle Pierce, Frankie Gonzalez and Mark Keller had the only hits for Marathon. The one bright spot was Kyle Pierce made his first start in left field and made several plays. He had a couple of big catches out there with runners in scoring position, Leal said. The Dolphins (8-9) are scheduled to visit Ransom Everglades School on Tuesday at 6 p.m.Baseball Fins hitting the roadFrom Dolphins, 1B Conchs in Volunteers stateThe Key West High School baseball team is in Tennessee this week, hard by the Georgia border in mountain-rimmed Chattanooga and its a Spring Break trip of at least four games that coach Ralph Henriquez believes is vital in developing and marketing a program he is striving to rebuild. At first, I was wondering, Am I going to be able to pull this off? said Henriquez, who has won three state titles for Key West and who, after an eight-year absence, again runs the program. The Conch party 16 players, coaches and parents arrived late Tuesday on a Delta Airlines flight from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where they had had dinner after arriving from Key West. I wanted to show them what its like at a [higher] level, traveling and representing your school and the game of baseball, said Henriquez, who acquired a wealth of high-level experience in the organizations of the New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves. Henriquez, who was impressed by the strict regulations of Belen Jesuit Prep in Miami, where he coached a few years ago, installed a dress code for the trip. Sport coats, dress slacks and dress shirts on the plane tie optional, he said. Some of these kids had never flown before. The team will stay at an Embassy Suites, where, according to the itinerary, it will be reminded to observe lights out at 11 p.m. The cost of the trip is about $25,000, said assistant coach Chris Valdez, an assistant principal at the high school. The money was raised through numerous fundraisers and with the home gate receipts and concessions, he said. While in Chattanooga, Henriquez and his staff will hand out written material on the history of the Conch baseball program, which has won 11 state titles. Sightseeing trips have been planned, and Henriquez would like to get to Lookout Mountain, which overlooks the city and is a longtime tourist attraction that a half century ago was advertised to vacation-bound motorists on barns far north in Kentucky.

Merritt Island improved to 13-4. Before the game, Todd Swofford, who began broadcasting Conch games on WKWF 1600-AM 30 years ago, was honored. On Friday night, the Conchs who made four errors won behind the pitching of Veliz, who allowed two runs in five innings and improved his record to 6-0. Key West scored four runs in the first inning and breezed from there. Steven Wells, Anthony Henriquez and Presley each had two hits, and Veliz drove in a run with a triple in the first.Streak endsFrom Conchs, 1B out eight, walked none and allowed 10 hits.Roney was dominant in the Dolphins shutout over Carrollwood on Monday. She struck out seven, walked one and allowed only three hits.Roney also provided all the offense the girls would need with a first-inning RBI double to give the Dolphins a 1-0 lead. Marathon scored three more in the fifth inning, including a two-run double by Philcox. The girls played very well ... and we had one of our lowest error outputs. You see the difference; when we do not mistakes we win or play very well, McDonald said.

When Amy Kritzer was growing up in Connecticut, her mother made lasagna from matzo each Passover. The holiday, which commemorates the end of slavery for the Hebrews in ancient Egypt, calls for Jews to avoid leavened grain in products like regular pasta and bread, so its matzos biggest moment of the year (Passover starts at sundown April 14). But lasagna? We almost never ate lasagna the rest of the year, Kritzer, 31, laughed. I was sure I could live without it that one week. But it was like a little challenge, what to do with the matzo. In recent years, matzo has undergone a makeover as the people who churn it out by hand or machine and the people who eat it have come up with new recipes and flavors for the large cracker with a big place at the Seder table but a bad rep in the taste department. It turns out its a pretty darn good canvas, said Lucinda Scala Quinn, executive editorial director of food at Martha Stewart Living, where the companys test kitchen has been coming up with new ways to use matzo. We live in an age where everybody, it seems, is an inventive cook. Matzo has been this undiscovered ingredient waiting to be used beyond just kind of breaking it at the Seder. Doug Freilich of Middletown Springs, Vt., makes small batches of artisanal matzo he calls Vermatzah. He started production about six years ago with help from his wife and two daughters.He makes his matzo in the more traditional round shape using grain he grows and grinds himself, then pops it into his wood-fired oven and wraps it in parchment paper with a delicate tie before gently placing six pieces in metal tins of bright green, red and yellow.Freilich sells online and ships around the country.The DIYers are in full force on the matzo front. Theyre going online to show off chocolate-dribbled matzo smores, matzo melted cheese sandwiches, matzo brei cupcakes (named for a matzo-egg dish) and matzo napkin rings made of colorcopied prints of the real thing.Taking a cue from gingerbread houses, matzo houses incorporate traditional Passover treats as decorations and chocolate as mortar. Other matzo creations include nutty, fruity brittles and barks in chocolate and caramel, matzo-layered ice cream cakes, toasted matzo crumbles on salads and matzocrusted chicken cutlets. Theres been quite a bit of movement in the matzo, observed Menachem Lubinsky, Koshertoday.com editor and co-producer of Kosherfest, an event he helped found 25 years ago. I think the skys the limit here. The opportunities are enormous. Kosherfest is scheduled to take place in November in New Jersey. Last year, it featured about 11 flavors of matzo, he said. With only two major mass manufacturers of matzo left in the U.S., Manischewitz in Newark, N.J., and family-owned Streits on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, American box matzo has lost ground to imports, primarily from Israel, Lubinsky said. Lubinsky and others see increasing interest in matzo among non-Jews, and from Jews year-round. We do just as much matzo during the year as we do for Passover. It wasnt always that way. It used to be probably 80 percent Passover, 20 percent daily, said Aaron Gross, in the fifth generation of the Streit family. The U.S. matzo market is worth about $86 million a year and the Israeli market more than $100 million, Lubinsky estimated. Even old-school matzo makers like Streits offer a variety year-round including whole wheat and Mediterranean, with sundried tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil. But the company sticks closer to basics for Passover, adhering to special procedures that include thorough cleanings of the nearly century-old factory, a sixstory plant in a string of old tenements. Equipment is scrubbed again and again between batches, and the matzo must bake within 18 minutes once the water and wheat are mixed all under rabbinical supervision. They say the most difficult things to make are with the fewest ingredients, Gross said. You cant get much fewer than flour and water, right? FREE Virtual Samples with YOUR Logo!-842o!
