Those wanting to launch a boat or personal watercraft from anywhere on the Monroe County side of Card Sound Road must look elsewhere.Using Jersey barriers, boulders and No Trespass signs, areas like the popular Jet Ski beach and other access points near Card Sound Bridge are now for the most part off limits. The nearest place for someone to put his or her boat in the water for free in Monroe County is now about 40 miles south at the Indian Key fill ramp at mile marker 79 in Islamorada. County officials said they closed the four Card Sound Road spots because excessive weekend parties left the area littered with trash, beer bottles and cans and other debris, as well as spraypainted graffiti. Monroe County Mayor Silvia Murphy said the area is also known for drunken fights, loud music and dangerous personal-watercraft drivers. She said the majority of people who play there are from Miami-Dade County.On the weekends, theres not a Monroe County resident in the bunch. If they had not come down here and screwed it up, nobody would have ever cared, Murphy said. It gets worse and worse with every passing week.None of the five small bridges that span Card Sound Road, which are popular fishing spots, will close, Murphy said. They can fish til their hearts content, she said. Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin called the Card Sound area a hot spot for trouble. She said deputies were frequently called there to respond to fights, traffic incidents and other disturbances.Herrin said Jet Ski Beach and the other three Classifieds . . . . .7B Living . . . . . . .2B Business . . . . . .5A Opinion . . . . . .4A Sports/Outdoors . .1B Crossword . . . . .6BINDEX Printed on 100% recycled newsprint CONTENTS 2014 KEYNOTER PUBLISHING CO.

The law firm of Horan, Wallace and Higgins filed the suit Friday in U.S. District Court. On Thanksgiving, police pulled over Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., on North Roosevelt Boulevard. Police say he pulled away from the stop, drove through Old Town and stopped his P.T. Cruiser at South Beach at the Atlantic end of Duval Street. When he got out of his car, police took him down to his stomach and handcuffed him. They saw he began turning blue, according to numerous reports. Eimers was taken off life support at Lower Keys Medical Center on Dec. 4.In the lawsuit, the Eimers family says it is grossly apparent that the defendants asphyxiated Charles Eimers by forcing his face into the sand,Eimers claim asphyxiation by officersBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Dog owners feel targeted by policeLongtime users of the unofficial dog park behind Marathon City Hall found the timing curious at best Wednesday of a Sheriffs Office visit there to enforce the city leash law. As many as 20 frequent park visitors showed up to Tuesdays City Council meeting protesting the possibility of a fenced-in area that would limit their animals ability to run and exercise. The next day, Sheriffs Office Capt. Gene Thompson went to the park, called Oceanfront Park, and reportedly told about 15 people their dogs are required to be leashed on the city-owned waterfront property. He showed up, very civilly, and essentially said we didnt have to leave but had to put our dogs on leashes, Mike Pinton said. We all kind of had the same feeling that its kind of hard to play fetch when your dog is on a leash.Pinto said that rather than leash their animals, they all left. He said many questioned the visit coming one day after the group spoke out against the fence, adding that hes been using the park pretty much every day for five years and never encountered the Sheriffs Office there.We show up with 20 people and 13 spoke and the next day the police show up, he said. Thompson couldnt be reached for comment, but interim City Manager Mike Puto said city officials didnt direct Thompson to enforce the leash law.

In 2008, a jury convicted Louise LaTorre, 66, of drunk drivingcausing bodily harm. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia sent him to prison in June 2011, fed up with what prosecutors called LaTorres baseless appeals.In the April 15, 2006, crash, LaTorre was driving south in the northbound lane of U.S. 1 at mile marker 8 at 2:45 a.m. His pickup struck Nadezda Bowmans northbound sport utility vehicle head-on, causing it to roll over and come to rest on its side. Florida Highway Patrol Cpl. Gary Dunick testified at trial that he feared Bowman was dead when he reached the scene. Two separate tests showed LaTorres blood alcohol level to be .101 and .102. Driving with blood-alcohol levels of .08 or higher is illegal in Florida. Cocaine also was found in LaTorres system. Bowman, like LaTorre then a Big Coppitt Key resident, was left paralyzed and wheelchair-bound. She has since returned to her native Czech Republic. LaTorre left the county job after his arrest.

The PBA was closed Friday. After Eimers died, his body was transferred from the hospital to Dean-Lopez Funeral Home for cremation rather than to the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy, as is required by law for deaths in police custody. Eimers body sat at DeanLopez until Dec. 11, when it was taken to the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office. Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman did an autopsy the next day but didnt rule on a cause of death.The lawsuit says the delay in transferring the body from the funeral home to the coroner was a calculated plan to allow the destruction by cremation of key evidence of defendants excessive force, reckless conduct and bad faith.The autopsy revealed Eimers had 10 broken ribs when he died, but some medical professionals say broken ribs can result from efforts at cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which was done on Eimers. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is reviewing the circumstances surrounding Eimers death. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Friday the investigation remains active.Dead mans family suesFrom Lawsuit, 1AAnother delay for Zecca sentencingA former U.S. Coast Guard commanding officer who admitted to trying to hire a hitman to kill a Middle Keys Realtor has had his sentencing pushed back a second time. Dennis Zecca, facing 10 years in federal prison, is now scheduled for sentencing before U.S. District Court Judge Jose Martinez at 1:30 p.m. July 2 in Courtroom 1 at 301 Simonton St., Key West. The sentencing was previously set for Monday morning. Before that, it was set for March 25. Zecca, a former commanding officer of Coast Guard Station Islamorada, admitted in federal court in November that he tried to hire a hitman to kill Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt (he was not injured). The hired gun turned out to be a federal informant. In return for his guilty plea to murder for hire, the U.S. Attorneys Office dropped charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon. After 26 years with the Coast Guard culminating with his Islamorada post, Zecca became part-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard. He was arrested Dec. 21, 2012, for attempting to pay an employee a federal informant who is a convicted felon $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine to murder Schmitt. No one has ever said what the incentive was, and Schmitt says he has no idea. Federal authorities say the murder plot had associates and co-conspirators in this offense but have not said who they are. That information could come out at sentencing. Zecca was arrested after the informant, who was wearing a wire for the feds, showed Zecca a doctored photo of Schmitt lying in a pool of blood and as Zecca was going to get $5,000 of the $20,000 payment for the hit.He admitted he hired man to kill SchmittIN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff ZECCA Probation for lobster suspectsTwo men caught with dozens of illegally harvested lobster in August 2011 have been placed on more than two years of probation after spending three months in the Monroe County jail, authorities said Wednesday. Carlos J. Infante, 43, of Miami and Angel Vigoa, 61, of Palm Beach County were arrested after being found with 53 undersized lobster and 49 wrung tails on the water.They were aboard a boat seen running without lights at night, according to the arrest report filed by Lt. Ryan Smith of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission.The men were not charged with robbing lobster traps but officers noted the defendants were not licensed trappers and did not have any dive or bully-netting gear aboard the boat to catch lobster. Infante and Vigoa pleaded guilty in November 2013, a few days before a scheduled trial. A third defendant has since died, the FWC noted.Infante and Vigoa reportedly completed their 90-day sentences. In February they were sentenced to more than two years of probation and ordered to pay $5,308 each.They already served time in the jailIN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffCops: Texas Woman forsook kids for beerA Texas woman was arrested Wednesday in Key West after allegedly kicking her two children out of her vehicle on Duval Street in Old Town.Suzanne Simon, 38 of Sugarland, Texas, is charged with felony child neglect. Friday, she remained in the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island in lieu of $5,000 bond.The children, a 12-yearold boy and 8-year-old girl, were handed over the states Department of Children and Families.Key West police responded to the Inn at Key West on North Roosevelt Boulevard around 9:30 p.m. Wed nes day where an apparently intoxicated Simon was in the lobby, according to a police report.The kids, at this point, had been reunited with their mother. But they told Officer Bradley Lariz that Suzanne wanted more beer and cigarettes and kicked both [children] out of the car, driving away, leaving them, according to the report. The girl eventually found the car and got back in, while the boy asked two women he met on the street for a ride back to the hotel. The little girl told Lariz that Suzanne continued to drive around yelling at her and slapping her on the forehead. Suzanne kicked her out of the car two more times to find beer and she picked a beer up off the sidewalk to give Suzanne.Shes charged with felony child neglectCRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff SIMONFWC: 200 sea-cucumber limitThe fate of a Lower Keys commercial sea-cucumber business could be decided Wednesday, says the Florida Sea Cucumber corporate president.Thats when a decision on setting daily or trip limits for the bottom-dwelling invertebrates goes before the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission board, meeting near Tallahassee.This will pretty much decide which way its going to go, said Eric Lee of Florida Sea Cucumber, a firm that wants to sell processed sea cucumbers to China as a food and nutritional supplement.FWC staff says in a background report that it will hold to an earlier recommendation to create a daily trip limit of 200 sea cucumbers for people holding a commercial marine-life license with a species endorsement. The proposed rule would allow the established traditional fishery that supplies sea cucumbers alive to the aquarium trade to continue to operate under its current practices and could be carefully expanded later, if appropriate, says a summary by FWC biologists Melissa Recks and Mason Smith. Lee said the 200 daily limit would put us out of business at the firms Ramrod Key processing facility, now largely dormant.Florida Sea Cucumber will ask the FWC to choose a secondary alternative offered by agency staff: A commercial trip limit of 500 sea cucumbers per day per vessel until the annual harvest reaches 150,000 sea cucumbers. After that annual harvest is reached, the limit would drop to 50 cucumbers per day for the rest of the year.Given the options of being out of business or being able to stay in business and get our money back, we hope the commissioners will go with the higher boat limit, Lee said Thursday. Even with that, it would take a lot longer to recover our investment.Currently, there is no daily limit on sea cucumbers for marine-life license holders. The limit on marine-life licenses is capped at the current 160. Recreational fish collectors have a five-cucumber daily limit. The FWC in November moved toward the 200 limit but then reconsidered and asked staff to review other alternatives. Many other traditional fish-management rules, like size limits, would be difficult to apply to sea cucumbers, staff said.Virtually all of Floridas commercial sea-cucumber harvest before 2013 was limited to the aquarium trade, which took about 16,000 animals annually. Those numbers tripled in 2013 when a few marine-life collectors began selling to the food industry.The Florida Marine Life Association, which represents many of the states professional fish collectors, strongly endorses the 200 daily limit on sea cucumbers, said group President Jeff Turner.Business owner says that would kill his companyOUR FISHERIESSanctuary gets plans updateAdvisers to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary face three days of meetings in Marathon and Islamorada this week, mostly focusing on a new management plan. The full Sanctuary Advisory Council holds a daylong session Tuesday at the Islander Resort conference center, mile marker 82.1 in Islamorada. Volunteer council members likely will be asked to vote on wording of a resolution calling for more federal support of various lawenforcement efforts in the 2,900 square miles of sanctuary waters. The panel also will get an update on ongoing marine zoning and regulatory reviews. Members also could vote on a new chairman and vice chairman for a years term. Incumbent Chairman Ken Nedimyer and Vice Chairman Chris Bergh both have been nominated.The 9 a.m. meeting is open to the public, with comment sessions for non-agenda items at 11:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m.The Ecosystem Protection Working Group, a committee of the sanctuary council, gathers Thursday and Friday at the Marathon Garden Club, mile marker 50, to review marine protected areas in the Middle Keys. Sanctuary Preservation Areas at Sombrero Reef and Coffins Patch are expected to the primary topic of review. Discussion at the 9 a.m. sessions may include other aspects of ecosystem protection recommendations for the region, providing a rationale for proposed recommendations [or] opposition to recommendations.NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARYState: Relax lionfish rules furtherScuba rebreathers and relaxed spearfishing rules should be added to the arsenal in the war against lionfish, state fishery managers will hear Wednesday. Staff of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will urge FWC voting board members to take more steps that allow divers to kill lionfish, an invasive species seen as a clear danger to native fish populations. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that lionfish will be completely eradicated from Florida waters, says a staff report. The state already has taken several steps to increase the harvest of lionfish, such as allowing divers to spear or capture lionfish without a saltwater fishing license. Anglers need a fishing license but can take as many lionfish as they want. New rules being proposed would allow divers who use rebreathers to spear lionfish. A rebreather basically recycles a divers oxygen. Florida law bans the use of rebreathers which do not emit bubbles, making it easier to approach fish for all spearfishing. An exception should be made for lionfish, FWC staff says. The agency cites Key Largo lionfish derbies as examples of how allowing the spearing of lionfish in waters normally closed to spearfishing proved to be excellent opportunities to safely facilitate lionfish removal. The FWC meets Wednes day and Thursday in Havana, outside of Tallahassee.OUR ENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com LaTORRE


areas are controlled by both the state and Monroe County. But not everyone in the Keys is happy that yet another waterfront access area is closed to the public. Backcountry fishing guide Capt. Mike Makowski said a popular boat ramp on the north side of the Card Sound Bridge is now closed. Makowski said he and other guides frequently used that ramp to launch their boats, especially when they took clients to fish off the nearby Ocean Reef Club. I use it a lot, and a lot of other guys I know use it, Makowski said. It was the last free boat ramp open 24 hours in the area. Key Largo boat owners and backcountry guides who trailer their vessels have other places to launch, but not without cost. The Caribbean Club at mile marker 104 charges $20 for boat-ramp use. Gilberts Marina at mile marker 107 charges $10. Upper Keys guides can also put in at Homestead Bayfront Park Marina in Miami-Dade, but that, too, will cost them $12 during the week and $15 on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Theyre limiting our access to the water, and thats why people come down here in the first place, Makowski said. bors and visitors to the park who raised concerns about dogs running free. Several claimed theyve encountered dogs from the park on their 98th Street or 99th Street properties. The City Hall property is between those two streets along U.S. 1. However, both dog-park users and the parks neighbors pointed out a large homeless presence at the park since the city began improving the area with benches and pavilions. Residents said theyve found the homeless sleeping on tables and benches, drinking alcohol and even entering public restrooms for long periods of time in pairs. Puto said he spoke to Thompson and that his big thing coming through was we had a lot of people complaining about the homeless. Why we havent [enforced the leash law] before, I dont have an answer. Everything came to the council including the homeless, so I guess it all snowballed at one time. Right now, it still has to come before the city council to see if they want to do a dog park next to city hall, Puto said. The city already has a dedicated dog park, at U.S. 1 75th Street. City Community Services Director Debbie London said there are plans for a fencedin dog area at the park at City Hall. The city has installed kayak docks and is also building a recreation trail on the property. It wasnt that we had to do it, but it was something [then-City Manager Roger Hernstadt] wanted to include on the plans as an optional item, London said. Mayor Dick Ramsay floated the idea of exploring property outside of City Hall for another dog park. The [City Hall] park is and has been from the beginning more of a people park than a dog park and the city put a lot of money into that concept. And that was part of the grant to purchase the property, Ramsay said. The message I got the other night was what we have planned was too small, he said. They want a space where they can throw a ball, and I understand that. However, I dont think its going to work at Oceanfront Park because its too small. We cant afford to take away any more space from the activities of our residents. Ramsay floated the idea of using county-owned land on Grassy Key for a second dog park but said it appears the terrain there would not be suitable. He also has staff exploring the possibility of the county School Boardowned Marathon Manor.way for a planned $220 million upscale walled-in community with a 99-slip marina.Building stopped in 2008 when construction workers, vendors and others literally walked off the job, saying they werent being paid. Brittian said his company has already spent millions of dollars reinvesting in the property. There are 13 completed homes, a clubhouse and pool. Local contractor Coral Marine Construction is working on the marina, which is scheduled to be complete by July. I had 30 men here working for two years. Most of these homes, we had them all [certified for occupancy] in November, he said.The 13 Dutch Colonialor Dutch Caribbean-style homes were far from finished when Palm Hill took ownership.Most of the things were only 60 to 80 percent done. It looked like they were done. They had one unit done you went through, but it wasnt connected to the citywide central sewer system, Brittian said. Brittian said the Marlin Bay property comprises 7.58 upland and 6.22 submerged acres. The marina would accommodate boats from 24 feet to 70 feet long. Palm Hill is working with the same development agreement as originally approved by the City Council in 2005. That means another 71 homes could be built. Brittian said the units range from roughly 2,500 square feet to 4,000 square feet of living space. They vary from 4,000 square feet to 7,000 square feet when accounting for under roof space like garages, storage and porches.Brittian said prices for the three-bedroom, 3.5-bath homes will start at $1.5 million, with larger four-bedroom, 4.5-bath properties listing for as much as $4 million. Thats essentially the same range L.M. Sandler planned.According to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office, the Marlin Bay property had a combined 2013 market value of $12.75 million. Thats $6.77 for commercial parcels and $5.98 million for the housing units.Sales start years after bustFrom Marlin Bay, 1A Saturday, April 12, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com An upscale atmosphere with a local island vibe PLAZAGRILLSteak & Seafood5101 Overseas Highway Mile Marker 50 Marathon, FL KeysMarathon, FL KeysMake Your Reservaons Early 305-743-7874 or PlazaGrillFlKeys.com 3 Seangs Avaiable2 pm, 4 pm or 6 pmENTREESEaster Ham with Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans & Onion Jam $26 Grilled Filet of Beef and Garlic Mashed Potatoes with a Mushroom Demi Sauce $36 Sauteed Yellowtail Snapper with Saron Risoo & Chardonnay Basil Buer $29 Cioppino Pan Seared Scallops, Shrimp, Clams, Mussels & Calamari over Linguini Marinara $34Rack of Colorado Lamb served with Broccolini in a Merlot Demi Glace $38APPETIZERSBlue Crab Bisque $12 Duck Pate with Goat Cheese & Figs $13 Blue Point Oysters $12SALADSCaesar Salad $10 Asparagus, Prosciuo & Roquefort Cheese with Balsamic Vinaigree $14Easter at Plaza Grill Malvina Trifilio 786-261-5190 mtrifi@gmail.com James Conlon 305-586-1611 jimac09@gmail.com HI-FI HEARING INC.11399 Overseas Highway Complete Hearing Exams Hearing Aid Service & Sales Offices in Key West at 2027 Flagler Ave. BEST PRICES IN TOWN! www.hi-fihearinginc.comWere Back in Marathon!

Denise Bozarth pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Tuesday, said Assistant State Attorney Demetrios Efstratiou. The sentence meted out by Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia was proposed after consulting with Edward Bozarths two adult children, he said. They were very satisfied with the results, Efsratiou said.Denise Bozarth, 41, has been in the Monroe County jail since she was arrested in March 2012 in DeFuniak Springs on a first-degree murder charge. Monroe County detectives suspected she was Edward Bozarths killer from the beginning, but it took five years to gather enough evidence for an arrest warrant.Denises friends told detectives that she had talked about killing her husband, who was 62 at the time of his death, in the past. Detectives say Denise expected to come into $650,000 that her husband had inherited from his mother shortly before he was killed.The Screw U 2 was docked at Gilberts Marina in Key Largo. Bozarths body was found on a hot July night by his marina neighbor, Key Largo firefighter Chris Fleming, who boarded the vessel after noticing a foul smell coming from the cabin. Denise Bozarth confessed to both a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy and a Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent on March 15 that she bludgeoned her husband to death. But in January, the states case hit a roadblock after Garcia threw out the confession because transcripts of the interview revealed Denise Bozarth asked several times to speak to a lawyer before admitting the murder. The deputy and FDLE agent were obligated to stop the interview immediately the first time Bozarth brought up an attorney. Efstratiou did not say whether the confessions inadmissibility was a factor in the plea deal.Woman admits killing husband for insuranceBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comCRIME FRONT BOZARTH Keys InfoNet.com

This is a whale shark that was caught just off Knights Key in Marathon on June 1 and 2, 1912, with Capt. Charles Thompson of the charter yacht Samo at the helm. The fish was 38 feet long with a girth of 18 feet. The fishermen estimated its weight at 26,594 pounds. Whale sharks are generally gentle and feed by letting plankton and other marine life filter into their mouths. A few years back, a whale shark took up residence in Vaca Cut in Marathon and stayed there for days, feeding on the life brought in with the current.Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALCutting water access a bad ideaLETTERS TO THE EDITORRefocus on housingFor the past seven years, as part of my 25-year commitment to secure adequate workforce housing for our community, I have felt very much like I was crying out in the wilderness. I felt this because politics is such a crisis-driven endeavor and because there has been an illusion that our past housing crisis had somehow gone away and been solved by the recession, and because our previous focus on housing needs for our working men and women had waned. Over these recession years, I have appeared before various commissions, including Key Wests and the County Commission and state housing agencies, asking them not to be misled or lulled into thinking we had somehow won the day on housing, to use funds available to purchase land, to hold onto public land and continue to build workforce housing ahead of the coming recovery. That, unfortunately, did not happen. Soon, much-needed teachers, cops, managers, nurses and mid-level and lower-level workers will not find a place to live in our communities. Families will leave, positions will go unfilled, services will deteriorate, etc. We have seen this before but this time will be worse, as large tracts of land that could have been retained are disappearing quickly in the recovery. We are going to have a limited time to get this right. To not house our working people adequately as we approach build-out will cause many hardships and a permanent and scarring social crisis in our community that will affect everyone who calls this place home. Please join me in urging our leaders to refocus on the issue of workforce housing. Edwin O. Swift III Key WestPublic pays too muchI attended a Florida Keys Mosquito Control District meeting last month. On the agenda was the item update on position and pay scale changes for employee manual (Holden). One problem was the figures and comparisons shown only covered other counties, the city of Key West, Keys Energy Services and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority. What about a comparison of private and other public sectors to give a complete picture? As of May 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that on average, workers employed by federal, state and local governments made more than those employed by the private sector, an average of $7,240 per year more. In my findings of 2013, employers in private industry spent an average of $29.63 per employee hour worked, but the equivalent cost for a government worker averaged $42.89 per hour. Government employees average 33 percent higher pay than those in the private sector; their pension and retirement benefit costs are now an incredible 254 percent higher. Private vs. public jobs has completely turned around. Private sector always made more money but had fewer benefits. Public sector had the benefits but less pay per hour. This is not the case anymore. Salaries in the public sector are becoming excessive compared to the private sector. This observable fact is rampant throughout Monroe County, Keys Energy, the FKAA, the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District, police and fire departments, state and federal agencies. It is widespread across the board. How long can this continue? When are we going to put our foot down and say enough is enough? Kay Thacker Key Largo Animals appreciate helpAt Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue, weve met quite a few of our wild neighbors. Its a long journey from rescue to release for many of our seabirds (brown pelicans, herons, songbirds, other types of wildlife) that make it to our center each year. Weve come to their aid day and night, 365 days of the year. Weve fed them when they were starving and given them medical care when they were sick or injured. Weve cared for their children until they were able to care for themselves. Weve released to the wild those that regained health. And weve given the hopelessly damaged a warm, safe environment to enable them to die with respect and without pain.For 13 years this has been the mission of our nonprofit organization. And with the publics help, we can continue to do this important work. We thank everyone for all they have done to help us weather past years, this year and future years to come. We wont say it has been easy, but everyone has made it easier.We welcome our dedicating volunteers; they toil alongside us scrubbing dirty kennels or chopping scaly fish. Others leave their warm home to bring us an injured animal. Some perform emergency surgery or care for an animal until we can get there, or donate something we desperately need. It is our greatest pleasure to acknowledge everyone and thank them, in the name of our feathered and fury friends. Maya Totman, director Wildlife Rescue Big Pine KeyPutos right for the jobIt seems as if the decision to put Mike Puto in as temporary Marathon city manager was a stroke of genius on someones part, neer I say a bit of common sense in city government. This is a city of what, 8,000 residents? Do we really need to recruit a city manager from the outside to deal with issues that are 90 percent local to Marathon? This job is not rocket science, but it is dealing with a unique way of life and sensitivity to those living on our small island. Puto lives, breaths, sweats and bleeds Marathon and has already shown the willingness to prune some dead wood. No doubt we will have a very different City Council come November. Why not let this new council evaluate Putos performance and make recommendations and hopefully offer the man a contract? Its been quite a while since the vibe emanating from City Hall has been Im happy. You happy? Im happy. Bob Guerin MarathonThe reason behind the sheriffs action is laudable but there are better ways to handle problemsCiting rowdiness, trash and graffiti, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office this month permanently blocked access to a boat launch on the Monroe County side of Card Sound Road in North Key Largo, as well as three other spots with water access from Card Sound (story, 1A).We understand the thinking behind the decision, especially considering Sheriff Rick Ramsays proactive and commendable policy of cleaning up areas that have been trashed due to garbage, spray paint and the like. But we also believe the Card Sound action is excessive and could have been better handled simply with more enforcement.Increasingly, public water access for our residents and visitors is being limited, though the causes differ in various areas. Free public boat ramps are nearing extinction.In March, the state Department of Environmental Protection closed four old Lower Keys bridges, citing structural deficiencies. All were popular fishing spots, and now theyre off limits. Both bridges from Ohio Key site of the seasonally crowded Sunshine Key RV Resort were among the aging spans closed (mile markers 38.5 and 39). The others are the Little Duck Key-Missouri Historic Bridge, mile marker 39.5, and the Lower Sugarloaf Channel Bridge, mile marker 15.8. At the time, James Millsaps, owner of Jigs Bait and Tackle on Big Pine Key, told us: Thats not good news. Those are very popular bridges. I send people there every day. It was in 2008 that the state Department of Transportation closed the old Seven Mile Bridge to fishing, saying the anglers put too much weight on the span, which is generally falling apart. Through an agreement with DOT, Monroe County and the city of Marathon, the bridge will be rehabbed to the tune of $77 million. No one has said if fishing on it will be allowed when its deemed safe. DOT also shut access to Sea Oats Beach on Lower Matecumbe Key, bowing to residents concerns about trash left there by day-trippers from the mainland. Closure of the old Lower Keys fishing spans and the old Seven Mile may very well be founded upon engineering reports saying they are not safe. And certainly, the people who live near Sea Oats Beach deserve not to have their neighborhood turned into a trash pile. But we believe closing the boat launch on Card Sound Road and the three other water access points there is unduly harsh, punishing the many for the actions of the few. We believe Ramsay could have just as easily increased patrols in that area, perhaps even pulling the Ocean Reef Club deputy (whose position is financed by Ocean Reef residents) from that post for patrol of Card Sound Roads out-of-control areas. Its not like Ocean Reef is a high-crime area and the upscale development has its own private security force. We urge the sheriff to reconsider his Card Sound decision. Taking away more water access from our residents and visitors is the least-palatable option in this case.Senior housing eyedA Key Largo senior-living project called Paradise Point returns for more consideration by the Monroe County Planning Commis sion on Tuesday. After a five-hour meeting Jan. 29, planning commissioners suspended consideration of Paradise Point until the status of open code-compliance cases at the property near mile marker 105.3 could be confirmed. The Planning Commis sion reconvenes at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102 on Key Largo. The only unresolved code case remaining on the 2 North Blackwater Lane property involves unpermitted outdoor storage, county Code Compliance Director Ronda Norman said Thursday. Many residents of the bayside Stillwright Point subdivision spoke out strongly against the proposed Paradise Point, a three-story building designed for 47 onebedroom apartments and common areas. Developers Gorman and Co. and 2 Blackwater LLC of Key Largo say the project provides an affordable-housing option for the elderly. Monroe County needs more affordable housing, and weve done a poor job of providing it, said project attorney Nicholas Mulick. Applications to live at Paradise Point cannot be limited to current Monroe County residents.Stillwright Points residents contend that Blackwater Lane, the only entrance to their 210-home community from U.S. 1, already is congested with delivery and customer traffic from the nearby Winn-Dixie store.Thats already a dangerous intersection, resident Emily Stewart said in January. It would be a travesty to see this happen.Two traffic engineers, one hired by each side, disagree on whether the added traffic could increase the chances of accidents at the entrance to U.S. 1.Planning commissioners are being asked to make a recommendation on whether to issue a minor conditionaluse permit for the site. Normally, county Planning Director Townsley Schwab could decide that permit, but referred it to the Planning Commission because of intense interest in the project. Any decision by planning commissioners could be appealed to the Monroe County Commission.Code cases nearly doneKEY LARGOMediator sides with unionAlthough the United Teachers of Monroe garnered support Monday from a mediator presiding over a contract impasse with the Monroe County School District, final say on provisions of a one-year deal is with elected School Board. After a year of bargaining, mediation started March 5 with a hearing in front of Scott Milinski from the National Mediation Board. The contract in question covers the 2013-14 school year, which is over in June. There are two major issues at stake:Management rights language that would allow the board to impose unpaid employee furlough days, which it did in 2011 and 2012 to save $1.7 million each year and avoid layoffs.How to distribute $1.25 million in raises for teachers and school-related personnel like bus drivers. Milinski recommends getting rid of the furlough language. The fundamental problem on the management rights issue is trust between the parties, Milinski wrote in his recommendation. Anyone would be hesitant to sign off on a proposal with the drafter of the language claiming that the rights of the parties are not changed. Why is the new language necessary if it changes nothing?We have been asking all along, UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said. Why is the districts management rights language necessary if it changes nothing?School Board member John Dick argues the language is necessary to avoid layoffs and pointed out that the contract period covers, at most, two months more of school for teachers. Are we going to impose furlough days in the last week of school? he asked. On the raises front, the district has proposed acrossthe-board $1,250 teacher raises and 2 percent raises for school-related personnel. Milinski recommends a $1,850 raise and agreed with the 2 percent. Dick reiterated that regardless of the magistrates recommendations, a final decision is left up to the School Board.He questions the need to talk furloughsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comThe contract in question covers the 2013-14 school year.

BennettC oldwell Banker Schmitt/Brett NewmanVacant Lot BusinessChef Jonathan Tibbs is bringing a taste of the Northeast to the Middle Keys with his new eatery, the Chesapeake. From steamed Maryland blue crab and crab bruschett, to crab dip and corn and crab chowder, the menu offers several dishes containing crab that are popular up and down the East Coast.I wanted to get the Chesapeake style food to the Keys. There is nowhere you can go and find a better crab cake than you will right here. Mine are 98 percent crab, with no filler at all, Tibbs said.Tibbs said he loves the Keys and its laid-back atmosphere, but is aiming for a more casual fine dining experience at the 150-seat restaurant. It features 3,000 square feet of indoor space and another 600-square-foot outdoor dining area. Other menu items include steak, pasta, fresh seafood, scallops and shrimp. Eighty percent of the seafood I have is all locally caught. I dont buy from big conglomerates; I buy from mom-and-pop wholesale fishermen. Im a big smallbusiness guy, Tibbs said. Tibbs was born in Florida and raised in Maryland. It was there his appreciation for food was born. How I originally got my passion for food was cooking with my mom when I was a kid. I pursued that and started to fall in love with food and making good food, he said. In 2007, the 28-year-old graduated from Johnson & Wales University and for several years worked at restaurants all over the U.S. He said hes opened, developed or reorganized 13 restaurants.My specialty is food and creative restaurant management. I use a lot of the tools available in this day and age to promote a restaurant, Tibbs said, referring to social media.Tibbs has been living in the Key Largo area on and off for three years and worked as a mate on fishing and diving boats during his time here.In 2013, Tibbs and business partner Alejandro Guardiola met in the Upper Keys and began formulating business ideas.

Stephen Freer, owner of an 81-foot tugboat called the Tilly that sunk off Key West around Feb. 28, is due in court April 28 for arraignment on a misdemeanor resource charge issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Com mission.Freer, 66, bought the 150ton tug off the Internet in January for $8,000. His goal was starting a marine cooperative in Cuba to escape Americas evil empire.He and the boat got evicted from the Stock Island Village Marina in February. The vessel was towed about two miles off Key West near the main shipping channel, where it sunk in about 30 feet of water.On March 12, FWC Officer John Brown filed whats called a resource violation against Freer alleging he violated state law that prohibits leaving a derelict vessel in public waters. Its a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail, a $1,000 fine or both. Freer missed an initial court date on March 28, which prompted Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller to issue an arrest warrant. Freer showed up Wednesday at the Freeman Justice Center not clear on where to go and what to do; he was eventually told of the warrant by a courthouse staffer. Miller recalled the warrant on Wednesday and scheduled arraignment for 8:30 a.m. April 28. The boat is now upright, sitting on sandy bottom near where it sank. With fewer than six months to go before the November election and fewer than four months before the primary, the race for outgoing Florida Keys Mosquito Control Commissioner Jack Bridges District 5 seat is getting crowded. Republican Key Largo business owner Eddie Martinez, 39, filed to run for the Upper Keys seat on Monday. The Miami native said he believes he can make a difference.Martinez is the third candidate to file for the seat. Also running are Thomas McDonald, a Republican, and Geoff Bailey, a Democrat. Bridges is running for the Group 4 Circuit Court judge seat.District 2 Commis sioner Phil Goodman, a Republican from Cudjoe Key, has filed to run for re-election. Gov. Rick Scott appointed him in May 2010 after the death of thenCommissioner Dick Rudell. Martinez said he worked for Miami-based ZurwelleWhittaker Surveyors and Engineers for numerous years before purchasing the company. Its still based there but he moved his family to the Keys. Im from Miami but Ive been here two years and I really love this place. I have four kids in the school system and I want to be an involved member of the community, he said. Martinez said hes begun researching the district and plans to stop by and look at the Marathon operation and see how its conducted. Im diving deep into it. For me as a candidate, I want to know if the public is getting good value for what we pay in taxes, he said. Ive been reading the minutes of the meetings and looked at their budget that they have online. I want to meet [Director Michael Doyle] and educate myself on the inner workings. As for Goodman, he sought appointment four years ago because of his chemical and business background. He was president of Boehme Filatex Inc. in North Carolina, which produced chemical products for the finishing and fashion industry. I was really interested in Mosquito Control and seeing as a citizen all the problems it was having before. A lot of it was financial and a lot of it was chemical related, Goodman said. I understood a lot about the operational side of Mosquito Control. Being a businessman, I understood the financial side and how to make budgets, he added. Goodman said he views Mosquito Control as a technology-based organization and aims to continue in that direction. I see Mosquito Control at a crossroads, moving from a really labor intensive operation to more of a technologybased operation, he said. Weve been able to continually employ new technology and utilize that in the place of brute labor force.

Lima pitched a complete game four-hitter, striking out nine batters and outdueling Dolphins No. 1 starter Kyle Pierce as the Hurricanes all but wrapped the regular-season South Florida Baseball Conference title. That was the difference, said Hurricane head coach Pat Meyers. He gave up the one run in the first inning and that was it. He pitched a hell of a game; he scattered [a few] hits. You have to give it to him, Marathon coach Luis Leal added. The Canes sit at 7-1 and were scheduled to finish their 10-game conference schedule with a doubleheader Friday at Miami Country Day. Results were not available at press time. Marathon finished 8-2 and would place second, based on tiebreakers, even if Coral Shores its their doubleheader with the Spartans. Pierce finished with five strikeouts, three walks and one hit batter in a solid performance for the Dolphins. But the defense struggled, committing six errors. They just played better than we did. We made six errors, and they were routine plays we made mistakes on. You cant give a good team extra chances, Leal said. Marathon jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning when senior Kevin McKeon walked to reach base and scored on a Raymond Crespo groundout.Lima pitches a gem as play is wrappingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comPREP BASEBALLCoral Shores sophomore Dalton Falcucci swings during a 3-1 road win over rival Marathon High.

Coral Shores scored another run in the top of the seventh after Will Goodwin singled and took second base on a passed ball. He was knocked in on a double down the first-base line by Luke Lofton that was called fair by the home plate umpire.The ball clearly bounced outside of the bag in foul territory, but the call was not reversed after Leal complained.

Some new perspectives on the Passover foods:Jennifer Felicia Abadis cookbook A Fistful of Lentils (Harvard Common Press, $24.95) balances the traditional recipes of her Middle Eastern heritage with her training at professional culinary school. This is a celebration of Jewish-Syrian traditions she shares with memorable poignancy. There is a complete menu for the Syrianstyle Passover seder, enlightening for those of us who are familiar only with the recipes of Eastern Europe. I was particularly intrigued by the flourless pistachio cookies flavored with orange water.Manischewitz has introduced a new Passover product line called Kitni, expanding beyond its traditional Ashkenazi roots. Kitniyot is a category of food acceptable for Sephardic Jews to consume during Passover, including beans, corn and rice.There are new convenience foods for Passover as well, including an almond pecan granola made with whole grain wheat matzo, almonds, pecans, dried cranberries and coconut ($4.99).For those with food sensitivities, Passover can be difficult. One resource is a new cookbook by nutrition expert Vicky Pearl, Gluten Free Goes Gourmet (self published, $35), with recipes that not only are gluten-free but also kosher, dairy-free, corn-free and low glycemic.Many of the recipes are kosher for Passover.

Marvel seems to have taken over Holly wood and the nearly 25 minutes of previews are dominated by upcoming film adaptations of other stories from the Marvel world of superheroes and mutants. But once the previews end, viewers are in for a treat. This film is one of those rare Hollywood movies a sequel that is actually better than the original.

HYDRA is a Nazi program from World War II that has developed a computer algorithm that identifies potential enemies, and HYDRA plans to use it to eliminate those threats.

After numerous real and computer-generated skirmishes, viewers know that the dramatic final showdown will be between the two supermen.The frequent computergenerated fight scenes are standard stuff and viewers must suspend their disbelief as Captain America leaps, twirls, jumps and dives his way through fight after fight with hardly a scratch.Residents of Cleveland, where the movie was filmed, might recognize buildings and landmarks, many of which are destroyed in the gunfights, explosions and epic battles between the secret agencies.Chris Evans plays Cap and his good looks and chiseled body suit him well as the enhanced human specimen that is Captain America. The always-watchable Scarlett Johansson returns as the Black Widow, a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff, who may or may not be trustworthy.Also returning is Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. who seems to have more lives than a cat. Sebastian Stan comes back in the character of Bucky Barnes, Rogers best friend back in the day.A new character appears in the form of an aging Robert Redford, playing cocky senior S.H.I.E.L.D. official Alexander Pierce.

Saturday, April 12, 2014 5B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.comDirector and Key West native Quincy Perkins was scouting locations in Homestead for his short film Swingers Anonymous when he came upon a large field with brightly colored buses parked along an access road and Haitian workers feverishly harvesting the crop by hand, row by row. This was the shot I wanted, Perkins said. And the 200 extras would be great. But to secure permission, he had to convince the field boss sitting inside the 2014 Chevy Silverado that he was not an undercover immigration agent. Perkins, 33 and still boyish-looking, got his field scene with a story of his own: I said I was a student at the University of Miami making a film. A few weeks later, on a sunny Wednesday morning in March, Perkins arrived at a field of green beans that soon would be filled with farm workers overseen by the man in the Chevy Silverado. This time Perkins brought a small production crew, writer Jonathan Woods and the usually clean-cut actor Tom Frank, who, after months of not shaving for the part, looked like a cross between a homeless Jesus and a member of the Duck Dynasty. Here we go, Woods said with excitement as the first scene was shot and the written story conceived from his warped imagination was being transformed by Perkins into a cinematic, black-and-white film noir with a twisted sense of humor. Swingers Anonymous tells the story of Franks character Bill, an ordinary man who goes to a swingers party at the home of the newest member, big-busted Pauline, and ends up inheriting a gigantic problem: Two dead bodies and $20,000 in drug money. Bill does not handle this problem well. His life quickly spirals out of control, albeit humorously, with the femme fatales breasts taking on a life of their own. Its a story I relate to Edgar Allan Poes The Tell-Tale Heart, with the character never quite getting away with a crime, Perkins said. Even if you may cover all your bases, you might not cover your psychological base. Thats the hardest one to bury. This is the third collaboration between Perkins, a self-taught director who has worked on several Hollywood feature films, and Woods, 66, a Key West resident who a decade ago left his job in Dallas as a globe-trotting attorney for a high-tech company to pursue his lifelong passion of fiction writing. Their first project together was a two-minute trailer for Woods second book, A Death in Mexico. It turned out so well that they collaborated again last spring in Key West during the Tropic Cinemas 72-hour film challenge, in which they created an eight-minute movie called Assbackwards. The premise was the gay world was normal and the heterosexual world was outlawed, said Woods, who wrote the script. The film, which opens in front of the Monroe County courthouse with people protesting heterosexuals, includes a hilarious scene at a secret meeting for heterosexuals who were in the closet to friends and family. It was very ambitious for the short time we had, Perkins said. But it was well received, and chosen to be shown at the Key West International Film Festival. For their third collaboration, Woods suggested his new 20-page short story Swingers Anonymous, which was published in November by Akashic Books as part of the Dallas Noir anthology and also will be in Woods new book, The Phone Call from Hell & Other Tales of the Damned, being published by New Pulp Press this month. I thought it was very visual and just a great little plot, too, Perkins said. I thought it also was manageable, as opposed to something that has lots of gunshots and explosions. ... So I said, Lets try this. To raise the majority of what turned out to be a $15,000 film budget, they used the website Kickstarter, netting $11,300 from backers as far away as Canada. When a deal fell through with a Miami company that supports independent filmmakers to provide matching funds and produce the film, Perkins reluctantly halted production in February. He asked his cinematographer, Jonathan Franklin, for suggestions for a new producer. They landed freelancer Peter Ebanks, who in turn got the Miami-based Florida Film House to provide production help and art direction. Usually movie sets run about 150 people, but were doing this entire thing with closer to 15, Ebanks said. This one were going a little bit gorilla. Were a small crew with people wearing multiple hats. With money short, Perkins and Woods kicked in the rest themselves. Woods joked that his wife would let him contribute only if Miss Pinky, their Shih Tzu, would get a cameo. She did. The 42-scene film was shot at eight locations in and around Homestead. Now they are taking the rough footage and putting together an assembly cut and a trailer. They also are back on Kickstarter to raise another $8,000 or so for the post production, which will include special effects, sound and rights to the music for the soundtrack. Maria Hill, Toby Jones (The Hunger Games, Muppets Most Wanted ) as evil Dr. Zola, Emily VanKamp (Revenge, Lost and Delirious) as Kate and Frank Grillo (The Grey, End of Watch) as Brock Rumlow. And of course, Stan Lee cant resist making his usual cameo, this time as a museum guard.The actors are believable and do a good job, especially when you realize that most of their work was with a green screen, having to picture what the rest of the scene would look like. Mackie, even after donning his Falcon wings, stands out as the most convincing. The action is so fast that viewers wont be distracted enough about the computergenerated work to care.The directing team of brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (Arrested Development, You, Me and Dupree), along with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (The Chronicles of Narnia, Thor: The Dark World) have put together a terrific film that holds together well and rarely drags.They cleverly pay homage to spy/conspiracy movies of the past, with several tonguein-cheek references sprinkled throughout the dialogue.Captain America: The Winter Soldier is filled with slam-bang action, welltimed humor, characters that come alive and a plot that has enough twists and turns to please even the most fervent conspiracy theorist. And dont leave too early; the end credits contain some surprises. Fans of Captain America and Marvel comics are already looking forward to the third installment, due out in 2016. But until then, Marvel fan or not, most viewers will enjoy this thrilling adventure.The action never stopsFrom Film, 4B Regal Cinemas Searstown, Key West, 294-0000 All shows that start before 4 p.m play only on weekends.

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 10B Saturday, April 12, 2014 THE FLORIDA KEYS The Goliath grouper had to weigh more than 400 pounds and was a newcomer to the A&B Marina dock in Key West. Our charter vessel Premium Time had just returned after a morning trip. Capt. Seth Hopp was cleaning the catch, which sparked the oversized Goliaths interest. Capt. Jay Miller and his mate Cory Robinson were prepping the Outer Limits, which was docked next to our boat, for their afternoon charter when they, too, noticed the large grouper. Thats when Miller started telling the story of how he had taken clients on successful Goliath grouper hand-lining charters in the past. A Goliath grouper hand-lining charter? Thats also when I knew it was showtime. Miller reached into the bait freezer, grabbed a full-sized bonito and tailwrapped it with a short piece of trap line. The dock audience started to take notice of the show that was about to begin. The dock culture that surrounds our Key West slip resembles a salty Mallory Square at sunset, except our entertainers have gills and feathers. As Miller dropped the whole bonito between the Outer Limits and the Premium Time, all the spectators on the dock were shooting smart-phone videos and taking position to record the tug of war. The frozen bonito slowly descended into the crystal-clear water, landing directly on the head of the big fish. With a small adjustment using its pectoral fins, the Goliath grouper moved into position. With a mighty draw from deep within, he sucked the bonito into his mouth and turned to finish his prize below the hulls of the fleet and away from the crowd. Miller braced himself against the gunnel and pulled against the grouper with every bit of his 6-foot-8, 300-pound frame, causing the Goliath to resist. With a mighty tail kick from the grouper, the front row of the dock crowd, me and the crew from our morning trip were covered by the Goliaths wave of salt. No one was left dry and everyone enjoyed the surprise. The laughter was real. Miller looked into my camera and said, Dont try this at home, folks! Hes a true showman. As the crowd dispersed it became clear the show was over. Our dock time at the A&B Marina has a Key West carnival atmosphere loaded with characters that arent afraid of much and love to entertain. The crowd was pleased by the man vs. beast show pieced together in fewer than three minutes, and likely will have that memory for a long time. Showtime at the dock happens daily. Everyone is invited.
