Watching water trickle slowly into an empty 200,000-gallon fish tank isnt that far off from watching grass grow or paint dry. But to Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters coowner Ben Daughtry, nothing could be more important. It was a huge step toward realizing his longtime dream of opening the Marathon attraction. Its a pretty big moment for us here, so well see how it goes, he said Thursday as the water flowed from an injection well. For perspective, the Sierra Club of Texas says the average swimming pool uses 18,000 to 20,000 gallons of water. The cavernous 10-foottall tank (actually two connected tanks) took roughly six months to construct and Daughtry, along with life system designer Andy Dobrowolski, spent Wednesday and Thursday testing the intricate setup. It features a dozen sand filters, three protein skimmers, an ozone chamber, roughly 25 pumps and three air blowers, as well as myriad PVC piping running to the tank and other areas of the 9-acre property. Well fill this up and run all the filtration equipment Andy put together for a couple days to make sure everything is how we want it. Then well drain the whole thing out and start theming the inside to make it look like coral reef, Daughtry said. Its two 40-foot rounds put together in a figure-8. Its about a 200,000-gallon tank, but where were going to be running it will be about 175,000, he added. The tank is separated in the middle by a thick, clear divider with four small holes in it. Sharks and other more aggressive species will be kept on one side, while the other one will be used to allow up to six people at a time to snorkel or Snuba in. Guests will be able to feed the sharks through the small holes in the divider. The rest of the facility includes a large stingray tank, another small nurse shark tank, a touch tank, a concession stand, gift shop and offices. The City Council initially approved the project, at 117th Street and U.S. 1, roughly nine years ago. But the economy tanked, preventing financing.

BP spill: 4 years ago SundaySunday marks the fourth anniversary of the explosion on the BP-operated drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, which killed 11 workers about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico and set off the nations worst offshore oil disaster. No oil made it to the Florida Keys but even the threat of oil caused a slowdown in summer tourism as many visitors cancelled trips. That slowdown resulted in at least $184 million being paid to Monroe County businesses and individuals who claimed financial losses stemming from the spill. The money from more than 11,000 local claims came from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, set up for businesses and employees in Gulf coast communities to file for losses. BP paid the claims to resolve civil cases. Another fund was created by the Restore Act, a federal law passed in 2012 to distribute money collected from Clean Water Act penalties for polluting Gulf waters with 200 million gallons of oil. Keys governments and organizations have submitted Restore Act proposals for about $67 million in projects intended to help the economy or marine environment, but little money has been distributed. There have been federal criminal prosecutions in Monroe County for wire fraud connected to the spill. Those convicted reportedly filed false BP-related claims from the Keys, or used stolen IDs to get BP claims money. Key Wester Donald Sargent got 33 months and was ordered to pay $77,215 in restitution.

For the first time since the middle of 2010, the states monthly jobless rate went up in March. Jobs officials say the negative movement is due in part to more people being in the labor pool. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity announced Friday that while the number of people with jobs has increased, the states unemployment mark rose from 6.2 percent in February to 6.3 percent in March.The last time the states monthly mark based on estimates of the number of people employed and actively seeking employment increased was in August 2010. At that time, the figure rose from 11.2 percent to 11.3 percent, and an estimated 1.03 million Floridians were out of work.There are an estimated 606,000 jobless Floridians. Floridas jobless rate, which remains below the national figure of 6.7 percent, had held at 6.2 percent the prior three months.Across the state, Monroe County (the Florida Keys) and Walton County in the Panhandle, held the lowest jobless marks.Both counties stood at 3.8 percent in March. Monroe went up from 3.7 percent in February while Walton dropped from 4.2 percent.Bay County fell from 6.4 percent to 5.8 percent, Santa Rosa County dropped from 5.9 percent to 5.7 percent, and Okaloosa County went from 5.0 percent to 4.8 percent.At the other end, Flagler County, which continues a slow recovery from the construction bust, sits with the highest rate, 9.3 percent, down from 9.4 percent in February. Meanwhile, Hendry County was at 9.1 percent, down from a revised 9.3 percent.The latest monthly marks came as the state estimated an increase of 22,900 overall jobs in March, with 20,900 of those in the private sector. The growth could be a sign of optimism in the workforce as people believe work is available. The workforce increased by about 59,000 in March to just under 9.6 million. Jesse Panuccio, Gov. Rick Scotts jobs chief, said in a release that the increased employment reflects renewed confidence among job seekers.In February, state economists had projected that more than half of the states drop in unemployment between December 2011 and December 2013 was due to people exiting the labor force or delaying entry.The number of people working is based on a surveyed sample of employers.Monroe, while still low, goes to 3.8 percentagainst board Chairman Ron Martin, who is running for a second four-year term.In the Middle Keys, School Board member John Dick filed to run for his third term.On the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board of commissioners, David Asdourian, Norman Higgins and Andy Tobin have filed for re-election.Two people so far are running unopposed for two individual seats on the Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District board dais.

He gave deputies a description of the car and its tag number.Deputy Linda Kohout stopped the car, driven by Causey. Asked about 11 rodand-reel sets found in the car, Causey told Kohout that Farley told him to take the gear.Six fishing rods were returned to Farley and others were seized while detectives checked the mens differing accounts. Over the next few days, reports of stolen fishing rods were received from Sugarloaf Key, Big Coppitt Key and Summerland Key. Detectives confirmed some of the gear held by the Sheriffs Office was among the stolen items. Other stolen rods were recovered from Causeys house.

A confrontation ensued and Llama left.Thats when the girl told her mother and a friend that Llama forced her to have sex on numerous occasions, Herrin said. She said he also forced her to watch pornographic movies with him, Herrin said. Llama is no stranger to Keys law enforcement. His Monroe County rap sheet goes back to 2003, when he was arrested for engaging in a pawnbroker business without a license and dealing in stolen property. Subsequent charges in cluded burglary, grand theft, violating saltwater fishing regulations, violation of probation and giving a false name to law enforcement.Llama charged with 2 counts of sexual abuseCRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff LLAMAFWC limits cucumber takeThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission on Wednesday authorized a new catch limit spurred by a fledgling Lower Keys seafood business. Beginning June 1, a daily bag limit of 200 sea cucumbers will be imposed on a relatively small group of professional fish collectors licensed to catch commercial quantities of the sea cucumbers, an invertebrate animal.That limit of 200 daily likely would force the Florida Sea Cucumber processing facility on Ramrod Key to close, company owner Eric Lee said earlier this week.The Florida Marine Life Association, the only professional organization for the states 160 licensed commercial fish collectors, strongly supported the 200-cucumber daily limit.About 14,000 to 16,000 Florida sea cucumbers typically are sold alive for use in saltwater aquariums annually.The prospect of increasing that harvest by a factor of three or more to supply a potential Asian market that uses sea cucumbers as a prized food or nutritional supplement concerned state biologists.No one knows how many Florida sea cucumbers exist or how many could be taken without endangering the population, biologists said. The rapid, unregulated development of sea cucumber export fisheries elsewhere in the world has led to fishery collapses and sea cucumber depletions, said an FWC spokesman said. Sea cucumbers are vulnerable to overfishing due to their sedentary nature, which makes them easy to locate and collect, according to the FWC. They are ecologically important as they help cycle nutrients in nutrient-poor tropical reefs and oxygenate sediments. In another issue of Keys concern, the FWC, meeting in Havana, near Tallahassee, moved toward increasing the harvest of invasive lionfish.Anything we can do to limit new lionfish introductions and further facilitate the development of a commercial market for this invasive species is a step in the right direction, said state Rep. Holly Raschein (DKey Largo), sponsor of a legislative bill to ban importation of live lionfish and the aquaculture of lionfish.The FWC endorsed passage of the bill. If approved at a final public hearing in June, the FWC will allow the harvest of lionfish when diving with a scuba rebreather, a device that does not emit bubbles (basically, divers rebreathe their own air) and allows divers to remain submerged longer. Currently, rebreathers cannot be used to spearfish. The state also seeks to create a new permit that allowing participants in approved tournaments or organized events to spear lionfish or other invasive species in waters where spearfishing is not normally legal. Lionfish are a voracious, fast-breeding Pacific species that has no natural predators in the Atlantic Ocean. An increase in lionfish numbers could threaten native fish species.Trade group endorses action, company upsetOUR FISHERIESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgMan dies when truck falls on himA 77-year-old Marathon man died Tuesday morning when a pickup truck on which he was working fell off a forklift holding it up and trapped him underneath. According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, Manuel Perez apparently was using the orange forklift as a makeshift car lift around 10 a.m. outside his Avenue H house in the Coco Plum area. Perez reportedly was discovered by 24-year-old Dayanis Oribuea-Perez, who told deputies that Perez was supposed to give her a ride to work that morning. The Sheriffs Office says he was working underneath the car on a dolly. Next to the small gray truck was a hammer and adjustable wrench.Oribuea-Perez called Manuel several times and received no response, a Sheriffs Office report says. She then stated when she went to look for him, she saw him pinned underneath the truck. Oribuea-Perez ran upstairs in the house to wake her uncle, John Perez, 33, who started the forklift and lifted the truck off Manual Perez. John reportedly performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Manuel until Marathon Fire Rescue arrived.Another witness, Mercedes Perez, 63, told deputies that Manuel had surgery to remove gallbladder stones three days before and was supposed to be resting.Manuel was taken to Fishermens Community Hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.He was under it doing work, forklift held itMARATHONKeynoter Staff THE WORKFORCEJoblessness rate goes up in FloridaBy JIM TURNER News Service of Florida CALLCLASSIFIEDS743-5551
tion. Cleon Major, formerly of Key West, was sentenced to 9.17 years and has to repay $306,228 when he gets out.What happenedThe Deepwater Horizon well was drilling the night of April 20, 2010, when it was rocked by an explosion and began burning. The rig sank less than two days later and crude oil gushed into the Gulf from the blown-out Macondo well. The wells location about a mile below the Gulf surface and the pressure of oil and natural gas erupting from it severely hampered efforts to cap the well. In July 2010, a cap was successfully placed over the well after an estimated 200 million gallons of oil escaped (the exact amount is one of many points that remain in dispute). The collapsed rig remains on the Gulf bottom.Monetary claimsTwo phases of a trial in U.S. District Court have been held in New Orleans and a third is scheduled to begin in January dealing with matters of fault, questions of negligence and how much oil ultimately was spewed into the Gulf all of which will ultimately determine how much the oil giant BP will have to pay in penalties under the Clean Water Act. BP estimates that since May 2010, it has paid out roughly $11 billion in claims to individuals and businesses over economic losses and damages, plus nearly $1.5 billion to the federal government. In 2012, the company and a committee representing numerous plaintiffs agreed to a settlement resolving most economic and property damage claims. However, a courtappointed administrators interpretation of that settlement remains in dispute.Criminal casesIn 2012, BP agreed to pay $4.5 billion in a settlement with the U.S. government and to plead guilty to felony counts related to the deaths of the 11 workers and lying to Congress. The figure includes nearly $1.3 billion in criminal fines the largest such penalty ever along with payments to several government entities. Two BP wellsite leaders are charged with manslaughter, and a former executive is charged with lying to authorities.In 2013, the Justice Department reached a $1.4 billion settlement with rig owner Transocean Ltd., requiring the Switzerlandbased company to pay $1 billion in civil penalties and $400 million in criminal penalties and plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of violating the Clean Water Act.Also in December 2013, former BP engineer Kurt Mix was convicted in federal court of obstruction of justice after prosecutors said he deleted text messages to and from a supervisor and a BP contractor to stymie a grand jurys investigation of the spill. He has motions pending before the trial judge to have the jurys verdict thrown out.Health issuesBP and plaintiffs agreed in 2012 to a settlement providing oil-spill cleanup workers and residents in specified areas close to the coast with payments for medical claims related to the spill. BP does not have an estimate of how much it will likely pay out. Lawyers have estimated as many as 200,000 people may benefit.EnvironmentOil from the busted well spread north after the blowout, eventually soiling marshes, beaches and barrier islands from Louisiana to Florida and forcing rich seafood grounds to be closed.Rescue and cleaning centers were set up for animals affected by the spill. Researchers continue to monitor marshlands, marine life and oyster beds for lingering effects from the oil or from chemicals used to disperse the oil. In the Keys, scores of people underwent hazardous-materials training. Keynoter staff supplemented this report.

I dont want another dead building, meaning one used far less than expected, Rice said. Some of our park buildings are operating that way. Commissioners urged staff to consider including some type of private business a Dairy Queen was cited to create a community gathering spot. Having something outside the box would probably give us better utility and better use by residents of the area, Commissioner George Neugent said. Advocates cited the lack of public facilities on Stock Island, which has the unincorporated countys highest density of school-age children. Commissioner Danny Kolhage defended the county Parks and Recrea tion Advisory Committees recommendation to include the building as a place for meetings, classes or childrens programs. After going to the [park] meetings, I was convinced this was whats needed, he said. Ride through Stock Island and see what the need is.

A Wednesday workshop with engineers for the state Department of Transportation appeared to alleviate some residents concerns about plans to repave U.S. 1 in Old Town Marathon. Construction, which runs from Coast Guard Station Key West west to the Seven Mile Bridge, is scheduled to begin April 28. But many business owners became concerned after Turtle Hospital owner Richie Moretti complained about various aspects of the work, and more DOT work planned for 2015. That led interim City Manager Mike Puto to meet extensively with contracted DOT engineers Adam Gosselin and Nick Everson and schedule the last-minute meeting. Roughly 20 residents showed up to the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport as Gosselin and Everson reviewed project plans and fielded questions using Google Earth to address specific properties. Morettis main concern is that adding 5-foot-wide bike lanes on each side of the highway would exacerbate a longstanding flooding problem in Old Town by adding impervious pavement. The highway sits higher than adjacent U.S. 1 properties there, which leads to runoff during rainfall. Moretti was not at the Wednesday session, but Turtle Hospital Manager Bette Zirkelbach asked about the lack of drainage. The designer is adding drainage features, Gosselin said. He doesnt have a lot of room, but he is going to put in swales. Gosselin and Everson said the area that would see the largest interruption is the entrance to Knights Key. The road is being shifted 16 feet to make room for a westbound left-turn lane from U.S. 1. The existing right-turn lane for eastbound traffic would be reconfigured, and a right-turn merge lane added for drivers leaving Knights Key. When we get into town, its really purely resurfacing and regrading, Gosselin said. Where westbound U.S. 1 reduces to two lanes around the Dions on the Run, plans call for a 5-foot-wide shoulder on the westbound lane and a 10-foot-wide shoulder on the eastbound side. The plans call for 5-foot-wide shoulders on both sides of U.S. 1 in the four-lane area of Old Town. Gosselin said the shoulders are being upgraded to address evacuation and safety issues on U.S. 1. If a vehicle has an issue, we dont want them to have nowhere to go, he said. The engineers assured residents there would be no daytime road closures on the two-lane section of U.S. and that the majority of resurfacing work would take place at night. KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday, April 19, 2014 www.Keys InfoNet.comCounty eases canal requirementA pilot program for canal restoration projects at seven canal systems Keyswide can proceed with less-than-complete support from area residents, Monroe County commissioners decided Wednesday. When planning the $5 million program to test various systems on how well they restore canal water quality, the county originally said affected property owners would have to unanimously agree to support the operation and maintenance of the systems after a twoyear test period. The proposal to get 100 percent approval to move forward, that aint going to happen, Commissioner George Neugent said at the boards Key West meeting. Ive heard from residents who say we cant allow one person to step up and stop this project.County project manager Rhonda Haag and consultant Wendy Blondin said most residents ardently support the projects, but a handful of owners in top-ranked study areas do not want to participate. Others simply cannot be found or have not responded.If I were one of property owners, I would want to know how you are going to make me pay for operation and maintenance, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said. Right now, you dont have an answer.Comments indicated the county likely would pursue special taxing districts, already in use for road maintenance and security in some areas, for the canal systems operational costs. Commissioners agreed planning could proceed for specific systems once 75 percent of the affected owners agree.In other issues Wednesday:Commissioners rejected a new contract with Teamsters Local 769, representing about 125 blue collar county employees, mostly mechanics.Commissioners unanimously agreed with the countys negotiators that they would not approve guaranteed cost-of-living increases to the union members in future years without knowing if other county employees would receive them.At Kolhages request, commissioners told staff to see if the county-owned Hickory House property on Stock Island could accommodate a public boat ramp. Concern about mangroves and other environmental issues stalled earlier plans to make the site a park. State environmental officials recently indicated that a public project might be possible, staff said. The county has an open request-for-proposals to see if anyone is willing to buy the one-acre site near the Oceanside Marina. Commissioners voiced concerns about crowds and crime that a ramp could attract to the area.Approved a $30,000 grant to Fair Insurance Rates for Monroe to help fund a study that might prove stringent Keys building standards should result in lower wind-insurance costs.Unanimous buy-in isnt needed anymoreCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comDOT tries to alleviate roadwork fearsEngineers explain plans for repavingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYTurtle Hospital Manager Bette Zirkelbach listens as engineers for a U.S. 1 repaving project in Old Town Marathon go over plans Wednesday afternoon.Board OKs seniors housingOver the objections of neighbors, a proposed housing project for senior citizens in Key Largo received conditional-use approval from the Monroe County Planning Commission on Tuesday. Weve got a property here that can be developed, folks, Planning Commission Chairman William Wiatt told a crowd of Stillwright Point subdivision residents. It has development rights. The motion to approve a minor conditional-use permit for the affordable-housing development near mile marker 105.3 passed on a 41 vote. Key Largo board member Ron Miller cast the dissenting vote. Most of the two-hour meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center focused on the status of code cases at the 2 North Blackwater Lane property, zoned urban commercial. Violations of unapproved outdoor storage and unpermitted uses have been corrected or approved by permit, staff said. Outstanding fines totaling more than $94,000 for earlier code violations must be paid before final development approval, planning commissioners agreed. Allegations of illegal filling of wetlands at the property could not be substantiated, county staff told the commissioners. Rumors of illegal fill were central to the Planning Commissions decision. A January meeting on Paradise Point was continued until Tuesday so that issue could be researched. While the 2 North Blackwater Lane owners previously sought permits to fill mangrove wetlands, the permits were refused, staff said. The county never filed a case on illegal wetland fill there. If the county is satisfied with the compliance, there is no fight between the county and the applicant, Wiatt said. I know the neighborhood is upset and against this, Commissioner Jeb Hale said. I almost feel like [Paradise Point] would be an improvement compared to whats there now.... It meets the criteria and fills a tremendous need. Commissioner Denise Werling said that with the sites commercial zoning, the 47-apartment project could have a lesser impact than some alternatives that arise down the road. We cant turn around and tell somebody they cant develop property when it meets the criteria to develop the property, Commissioner Elizabeth Lustberg said. Developers Gorman and Co. and 2 Blackwater LLC of Key Largo seek to build a three-story structure for senior citizens, priced within the affordable-housing range. The building includes a managers residence and common areas. Stillwright Point residents previously argued that North Blackwater Lane, the only entrance to their 210home community from U.S. 1, already is congested with delivery and customer traffic from the nearby WinnDixie store. Normally, county planning staff approves minor conditional-use permits. Since neighborhood opposition to Paradise Point was strong, Planning Director Townsley Schwab referred it to the Planning Commission.Some nearby homeowners opposed itUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

But the drawbridge there is not opening more than usual, according to county and federal officials. Monroe County Sheriffs Office Capt. Corey Bryan, commander of the Islamorada district, said he knows people have been complaining about congestion in the area, but said the bridge is not opening more frequently. However, when the bridge does open, it exacerbates the alreadycrowded section of U.S. 1 in Islamorada.The bridge is owned by the Florida Department of Transportation, which contracts a private company to act as bridge tender. But the bridges schedule is overseen by the U.S. Coast Guard.Michael Lieberum, chief of operations of the Coast Guards Sector Seven bridge branch, said the bridge is allowed to open once every half an hour. But the tender opens it only if there is a boat waiting to pass through. Therefore, even though the possibility exists that the bridge could open every half hour, it does not do so very often, Lieberum said.More traffic due to tourists, authorities sayReporter StaffTRAFFIC Photo by DAVID GOODHUEThe Snake Creek Bridge in Islamorada is on its usual opening-and-closing schedule, authorities say.Petition aims for size limitsA grassroots effort has started to try to make allowing any more projects like the 28,000square-feet Publix the Village Council approved in December illegal in Islamorada.Residents Beth Kaminstein and Lori Blair are gathering 550 registered voters signatures to get a village charter amendment placed on the November ballot that would restrict building size to a maximum of 10,000 square feet.Were just asking for the chance to be able to vote on the concept, Kaminstein said. You dont have to decide how you are going to vote [on the referendum] right now. Kaminstein, whose husband Ron Levy was the villages first mayor after Islamorada incorporated in 1997, said she wants to residents to have more of a say in future development. As citizens, we need to be able to have a better say about the character of this town, Kaminstein said. We should not be at the mercy of the whim of whatever council is sitting up there. The villages comprehensive plan already contains the 10,000-square-feet size limit, but that can be overruled by a 3-2 vote. That was done twice last year with the Publix project proposed for a bayside mile marker 82.5 property and what was supposed to be a Winn-Dixie supermarket at mile marker 81, on the oceanside of the highway. While the Publix project seems to be cleared for construction, Winn-Dixie is no longer interested in building a store at the mile marker 81 site. But the developer still intends to build a supermarket there and is in talks with unidentified chains that could be possible tenants. Kaminstein and Blair are among several litigants, including the Bay Hammock Owners Association, suing the village to try to stop the Publix from being built. She called the current five council members pro growth. If they werent for growth, what are they doing approving these mammoth projects? she asked. But Kaminstein said the possible charter amendment has nothing to do with the lawsuit. The amendment itself would not stop Publix from building its store since the Village Council already approved the project. It would, however, stop any similar projects from being considered. This is for the future, Kaminstein said. Its our way of using democracy at its best and really trying to get a handle on growth here. For more information on the petition, call Kaminstein at (305) 393-4013 or Blair at (305) 664-4585, or e-mail email@example.comK square feet would be limit for buildingsBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADATransfer-station plan goes to councilNearly four months after the Stirrup Key Homeowners Association filed an appeal, the Marathon City Council is scheduled to make a decision whether to allow Discount Rock and Sand to develop a recycling and transfer station for construction debris. Meeting Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center, the council is scheduled to hear the associations appeal of a Dec. 16 Planning Com mission ruling allowing the facility, which would be on Aviation Boulevard.The commission overruled Planning Director George Garretts decision to deny permits for a stormwater system at the project site. Discount Rock and Sand owner Eddie Lopez runs his current business from that property.The issue boils down to conflicting interpretations of city code by Garrett and Lopez land-use consultant Sandy Walters. Walters claimed the city code says recycling facilities are as of right uses in industrial zoned areas. The Aviation Boulevard site is zoned industrial.Garrett argued a separate section of the code prohibiting junk, salvage or recycled metal yards takes precedence. One of the prohibited uses in that section is construction and demolition debris.On Dec. 23, the association filed an application with the city to appeal the Planning Commissions 3-2 vote to overturn Garretts ruling. Commissioners Jim Tashjian, Lynn Landry and Ralph Lucignano voted in favor of Lopez, while Commissioners Dan Zieg and Lott Pansky dissented. Garrett said he doesnt plan to make a presentation Tuesday but will be available to answer council questions. It really gets down to that this is an appeal of the Planning Commissions decision. Its past me, he said. Our goal is to keep this as to the point as possible.Garrett said the association, likely represented by board member Marv Schindler, and Lopez would be on hand and are expected to make presentations to the council.Its also likely that the city would have a lawsuit on its hands regardless of which side wins Tuesday. Schindler has already said he plans to sue the city if the council votes in favor or Lopez.Dogs and parkAlso Tuesday is a scheduled discussion by Council man Rich Keating about Oceanfront Park behind City Hall and its unofficial use as a place for dogs to run. At the April 8 council meeting, numerous dog owners who use the park between 98th and 99th streets complained about city plans for a fenced-in dog area. They want the space to remain open so the dogs can run without being leashed. Some 98th Street and 99th Street residents say theyve encountered dogs from the park on their properties. City Community Services Director Debbie London said a fenced-in dog area was included in phased improvement plans at the park, but that it was optional only. The city has installed kayak docks and is building a recreation trail there. Marathons official dog park is at U.S. 1 and 75th Street. Dog owners say its not kept up and contains insects harmful to their pets.Discount Rock wants to expand its operationsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONWard tapped for marijuana advocacyMonroe Countys former top prosecutor is leading the charge in the Keys for the legalization of medical marijuana.Dennis Ward, former state attorney, was tapped about four weeks ago by Raymer MaGuire of the nonprofit United for Care, People United for Medical Marijuana, to be the Keys coordinator to drum up support for legalizing medical marijuana. The constitutional amendment is on the November ballot.Ward, 62, said he publicly stated his support for medical marijuana legalization during his unsuccessful re-election campaign against Catherine Vogel in 2012.I was asked if I support the legalization of marijuana, and I said yes if its for medical reasons, Ward said this week.Ward, who was a Miami Beach cop for 29 years before becoming an attorney, said his views on medical marijuana changed after seeing sick friends, some with cancer, fight illness better with weeds help.It gives them their appetite back. Ive seen some people who have benefited from it, Ward said. I asked them, You look great, how did you put some weight back on? And they said it was from smoking marijuana. And look at all the people who are moving to Colorado with children who have epilepsy.Ward will have a table with medical marijuana legalization literature at the Hometown! PACs April 21 Call for Candidates event at the Salute Restaurant on Higgs Beach in Key West. It starts at 5 p.m. Ward is also contemplating a run for a seat on the Islamorada Village Council this November. Im looking at it, but I havent made up my mind, he said. Potential candidates have until noon Aug. 19 to register to run for council. The seat Ward is eying is now held by Councilman David Purdo, who faces a challenge from former councilman and mayor Bob Johnson. If someone qualified runs, I wont see the need to do it, Ward said. But I cant see the reason to subject the people of Islamorada to these two guys again. In response, Johnson said Ward lacks the municipal experience to be a qualified candidate. I think that because of his lack of municipal experience, I think hed be better suited for law enforcement, Johnson said. Purdo said he welcomes the challenge of facing another candidate.Former state attorney: Yes to medical useBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com POLITICS WARD

To eliminate the launches, thus further restricting the Monroe County residents ability to utilize the Card Sound marine preserve and Biscayne National Park, is an extreme and reactionary response to the issues raised.Surely there is a better way to address the real concerns, correct the misuse of public facilities and continue to allow easy access to the fabulous fishery in our backyard that belongs to all of us. I look forward to finding a way to work collaboratively with the sheriff to address the legitimate problems without further restricting access to the waters for our law-abiding residents.Carolyn Caplan Key LargoCrane Points not inclusiveBased on the current decision of the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust to continue to pursue its eco-canopy tour (zip line) project at Crane Point Museum and Nature Center, I sent the following message to Loretta Geotis and the Crane Point board. I strongly encourage when public interest is focused on saving Crane Point to drop the newest idea for a scaled-back canopy project. It took a community working together to create Crane Point. We can do it again, but only if the membership and the community are part of the team. I challenge all current Crane Point members and the community to e-mail Loretta Geotis (loretta@crane point.net) to protest the boards latest decision. Its time to change their attitude from being exclusive to being inclusive. In addition, let her know that you will not donate any money to Crane Point until the community is included in the idea-generation process for restoring Crane Points solvency and making it the first-class nature center it could be.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOREnjoy culture the Morada WayOn April 3, 200 guests shared a six-course meal at the infinity table along Morada Way in Islamorada for the Foodie Fandango. In many cultures, sharing a meal with friends and family is a great honor. For the Morada Way Arts & Cultural District, Chef Michaels, the Kaiyo Grill, Pierres, Morada Bay, MAs Fishcamp, the Green Turtle and Caribbean Catering, serving 200 friends at the table was a privilege.On behalf of Morada Ways board of directors, artists and supporters, we thank the community for joining us for dinner in support of our mission: We exist for the creation of a community inspired by sustainable and thriving arts and cultural offerings. We are excited to announce that the evening net $25,000 to fund the mission of the Morada Way Arts & Cultural District.The Foodie Fandango celebrates the exceptional talent within our community: the culinary genius of our chefs, our artists ability to visually capture our hearts and our island enthusiasm for celebrating these gifts. This event would not have been possible without the support of volunteers (like Lisa Bradeen), sponsors (Caribee, Mercedes Benz of Cutler Bay, Ocean Sothebys International Realty, Florida Keys Electric Cooperative and the Botanic Gardens at Kona Kai) and the fabulous servers and chefs of Islamorada.Art requires inspiration, motivation, a desire to create.Throughout Islamorada and the Florida Keys, this inspiration is embedded in our natural surroundings the saltwater wilderness, the coral barrier reef, stunning sunsets and the awesome sunrise. The natural color palate stirs the vivid imagery of our talented artist community and each and every one of us.Morada Way is more than a place. Its an attitude, a feeling, a buzz that goes beyond mile markers 81 and 82. Morada Way is tangible, visual, thoughtful and vibrant. We invite all to embrace the Morada Way. Betsy Keteltas, Executive director Cultural District Tavernier Judge rules back-pumping water that jeopardizes our potable water must end (but appeals are likely)Two decisions this month could signify eventual improvements in the health of the Everglades, so crucial to Florida Keys water quality.The first decision came from U.S. District Court Judge Kenneth Karas in New York in a case involving regulations for water transfer practices throughout the country.Part of the federal Clean Water Act case involves a decade-long suit filed by environmental groups against the South Florida Water Management Districts occasional back-pumping of polluted farmwater runoff from canals into Lake Okeechobee. The pumping is for flood control and to store water temporarily. In 2013, the district back-pumped about 8 billion gallons of water into the lake between June 6 and 12. Karas ruled that back-pumping that jeopardizes the supply of drinking water can be construed as a violation of the Clean Water Act. That includes actions that affect Lake Okeechobee. Its a good decision.If upheld, the Water Management District would be required to apply to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for permits to allow back-pumping into Lake O, and it would end the practice that allows the EPA to exempt the district from meeting water-quality standards when pumping water into the lake. Instead, the EPA would have to monitor the quality of any back-pumped water.In all likelihood, the district, Florida or even the EPA will appeal the ruling, though it would be better for everyone, taxpayers especially, if the district were to accept the decision and end the costly litigation.Challenging Karas ruling means another in a series of delays to forestall a cleanup of the Everglades basin and allow untainted water to flow south into parched Everglades National Park and remove pollution threats to South Floridas drinking-water supply. As it stands now, most of the dirty water is flushed into the sea on both Florida coasts.The other decision was a vote last Thursday by the Water Management District board to commit financial support to the $1.9 billion Central Everglades Planning Project, a cluster of connected endeavors that would restore as much as two-thirds of the water needed to flow south from Lake Okeechobee into the park. The project is a crucial component of the much bigger joint state-federal plan to restore the vast Everglades system. It would reconnect long-separated wetlands, but there are still major concerns about how clean the water sent to these restored wetlands would be. That establishes a clear link to Karas ruling, which should be put into effect right away. The thorniest issue remains cleaning up polluted water in the Central Everglades. Both stormwater runoff from development and agricultural runoff pose huge challenges to the water management district and state and federal regulators. But Karas decision and the Water Management Districts vote on the Central Everglades Planning Project are both good news. Miami Herald
The bad news for travelers is that U.S. airlines posted terrible on-time numbers and record cancellations in February, as winter storms fouled operations at several large airports. The good news is that no U.S. flights were stuck on airport tarmacs for more than the three hours, the limit set by federal rules. The U.S. Department of Transportation reported April 10 that only 70.7 percent of domestic flights arrived within 14 minutes of schedule thats the leeway allowed while still being counted as on time. The on-time rate fell sharply from the 79.6 percent in February 2013 but was better than January 2014s 67.7 percent mark. Airlines reported 23,719 canceled flights, or 5.5 percent of all scheduled departures, the highest rate for February since the government started keeping track in 1995, according to the Transportation Department. We faced historically bad weather in February literally the worst we have seen with snow and ice storms nearly every day somewhere in the system, said Jean Medina, spokeswoman for the airline industry trade group Airlines for America. There were many times when it was simply not safe to operate, driving record cancellations. Medina said it was remarkable that there were no violations of the tarmacdelay rules, which prohibit ground delays of more than three hours for domestic flights or four hours for international ones. Hawaiian Airlines had the best on-time rating at 90.1 percent. Regional airline ExpressJet ranked last at 59 percent on time. Among the largest five airlines, Delta was on time most often, followed by American, US Airways, Southwest and United. One in every nine flights on ExpressJet and one in 11 on American Eagle were canceled. Regional airlines fly smaller planes and are usually the first to have flights canceled during bad weather. The government figures are compiled from 14 airlines that each operate at least 1 percent of all domestic flights. They exclude Spirit Airlines, Allegiant Air and many regional carriers.

BILL WILKINS 11050 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL 33050BUSINESS BRIEFSElectric co-op confab is todayThe Florida Keys Electric Cooperative has its annual membership event planned for today at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier. Registration opens at 11 a.m.Free lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., and a live-wire safety demonstration starts at 12:30. The actual annual meeting itself, with a raffle for home electronics and small appliances, immediately follows. There will also be entertainment, interactive booths and exhibits. The meeting serves as a forum to share the previous years financial and business reports and to keep coop members informed about various issues related to the power system.Baptist Medical singles out BatistaLeysa Batista, a physician practice representative in the cardiology practice on the Mariners Hospital campus in Tavernier, has been named employee of the year for Baptist Health Medical Group, a network of more than 140 employed physicians in numerous locations. Batista, with Baptist Health for almost four years, was honored for her customer service and caring nature, the hospital says.I love assisting our more mature patients who dont have family members living locally, she says. I contact the patients frequently to make sure they are taking their medications and that theyre safe and have food.Hamilton boosted at First State BankFirst State Bank of the Florida Keys has promoted Peggy Hamilton to corporate administration officer/exec utive officer manager.Hamilton joined First State in 2002 as administrative assistant in the Operations Department, became executive administrative assistant later that year and was promoted to executive assistant to the president in 2006.Prior to joining First State, she worked for the Syracuse City School Distric (N.Y.) BusinessAmazon to collect taxesInternet giant Amazon.com will start collecting sales taxes on purchases made by Floridians starting May 1.For Floridians who are supposed to pay the taxes but havent, the announcement of Amazons entry into the states brick-and-mortar retail landscape could mean about $80 million a year in sales taxes, according to one business lobbying group. Ty Rogers, a spokesman for the Seattle-based retailer, responded simply in an email on Wednesday that Amazon will be required to collect sales tax in Florida beginning on May 1. The announcement isnt unexpected, as the company is building a pair of massive fulfillment centers along the Interstate 4 corridor.John Fleming, a spoke sman for the Florida Retail Federation, said the announce ment is probably a sign that Amazon will soon trigger a collection requirement by starting to hire for the year-end holidays, which for retailers begins in September.The company also is upping its hiring projections for the facility from 1,100 to about 2,500 including seasonal hires, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The Amazon announcement wont end the drive by some groups to eliminate an exemption that has allowed out-of-state online retailers to avoid collecting the taxes.The Florida Department of Revenue requires online companies to begin collecting sales taxes once a company has a physical presence in the state. That has allowed many out-of-state online retailers, including Amazon, to avoid adding the taxes to online purchases. Floridians are supposed to pay the taxes themselves when they buy from online retailers, but few do.The Florida Retail Federa tion, which estimates the state will collect $80 million a year from Amazon sales, has been pushing for years to get Florida to impose what the group calls e-Fairness tax laws and Congress to approve what is known as the Marketplace Fairness Act. Fleming said the current focus leans toward Congress taking action, as the federal act would give states the authority to require online and catalog retailers regardless of where they are to collect sales taxes at the time of transactions. Besides, state lawmakers, reluctant to impose new taxes, havent shown much interest in e-Fairness efforts despite the lobbying efforts of Florida-based business and retail groups.BY JIM TURNERNews Service of FloridaCONSUMERSOn-time flight records take a beatingDAVID KOENIAssociated PressAVIATION

MLS # 563871 Hurricanes win baseball titleAfter escaping an upset in their first-round game, Coral Shores Highs Hurricanes slugged their way to the South Florida Baseball Conference championship in Wednesdays 9-2 victory over Palmer Trinity. That was our best hitting game of the year, Hurricane head coach Pat Meyers said of the 12-hit attack. Freshman pitcher Jose Lima got the decision in both conference tournament games, and was named the tournaments most valuable player. Against Palmer, Lima pitched a completegame five-hitter with six strikeouts. Just one run was earned. Luke Lofton and Dalton Falcucci each had three hits in the title game, played at Ransom Everglades. Dalton Falcucci delivered two hits. Kyle Gates, Will Goodwin, Cody Richards and Daryl Chou each added one. In Mondays 7-6 opener against low seed Miami Country Day, the Spartans rattled the Canes with an excellent pitching performance and a 6-1 early lead. We were in a hole but our guys fought back inning by inning, Meyers said. The Canes scored twice in the fourth inning and rallied for three more in the fifth. Loftons second hit of the game, a two-run double, put the Canes ahead in the sixth. Lima came on in relief of starter Goodwin and threw an economical 35 pitches in his three and a third innings. The championship marks the second time the Canes have won the championship of the six-team conference. Chou, the Canes third baseman, was named the conferences player of the year.

It was from his father Steve, who told him, Tell Ralph [coach Ralph Henriquez] that this will be your last game. Darren Miller, a four-year starter, cried. The Conchs, who that night defeated Pine Crest, 42, to complete a two-game sweep that improved their record to 20-3-1, will open the District 16-4A tournament this coming Wednesday with the hope that it will be the first step toward a 12th state championship.Miller who has a batting average above .400 and, as a pitcher, threw more than 90 mph wont be a part of that.Tuesday, at Florida State University, where he has a scholarship to play with the Seminoles, he will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. It will be at least 10 months before he plays baseball again. Miller was injured Feb. 8 in the second game of the season. After throwing a pitch as a reliever, he went to the dugout in pain. He grabbed his elbow, Henriquez recalled. He was nervous and scared; he didnt know what it was. It was real traumatic for us, said Steve Miller, who, with his wife Rochelle, are Rex Weech regulars. He had never had a serious injury.

The girls played better than they did in a 13-1 mercy-rule loss to the Warriors in the regular season, but still dropped the title game, 9-0. Theyre a very talented team. [Wednesday] night was their senior night, and they had eight seniors and all eight seniors were going to Division I schools to play softball, Marathon coach Sean McDonald said. All that being said, if we cut back on our own unforced errors and put pressure on them we have a chance, he said. Despite the loss, the Dolphins (12-13-1) move on to the state Class-3A regional playoffs as a top-two finisher in District 16. Theyll face Miami Country Day, winner of the District 15 title.

The Eagles (8-7) will play in the regional Wednesday at District 15 winner Princeton Christian. It was an exciting game and we hit the ball well, head coach Kaitlynn Loy said. There were some very good defensive plays, including a double play, but we made a few too many errors. Veteran ICS pitcher Amanda Ihrig turned in another solid effort on the mound. Jazmine Rivera led off the Eagle offense in the bottom of the first by slamming a line shot down the thirdbase line. While Colonials Lady Patriots chased the ball in the fenceless field, Rivera rounded the bases for a home run. Andrea Scott tripled, doubled and singled for Island Christian.

The last game of the season is always hard, said head coach Mark Hall. It was a very emotional game. The Lady Canes (5-8) gathered for a final cheer, with a few tears running through the eyeblack on their cheeks. In 15 years of lacrosse, Ive never seen a score this low, Hall said.

It was never a forearm injury, Steve Miller said Thursday. Both Henriquez and Steve Miller said that the player was examined by Key West orthopedic surgeon Robert Loeffler, who, after viewing an MRI, recommended rest for the arm. I was told it was not a ligament, Henriquez said. All the signs [suggested] that he would be OK. Miller didnt pitch again, and was used mostly as a designated hitter because he could swing a bat. He played some games at shortstop and at second base, but after making a throw as a second baseman last month in Tennessee, he immediately left the game and has been exclusively a designated hitter ever since.Steve Miller said his son was recently examined by a doctor for the Miami Heat. He said the ligament was torn off the bone, he said, adding that the doctor said it was OK for Darren to bat. Steve Miller said an FSU doctor confirmed the diagnosis.Henriquez said he is diligent about not overworking pitchers. None of our pitchers have thrown a complete game or 90 pitches in a game, he said. Ive never blamed [Henriquez] for the injury, Steve Miller said. Steve Miller said Florida State will honor the scholarship and help with his sons rehabilitation after he has a full ligament replacement. Darren was upset when he learned his season was over, Steve Miller said. But if he were to play another month and then have the surgery, his rehab would take him [too late] into next season [at FSU]. We cant risk another month. Steve Miller said FSU assistant coach Mike Martin Jr. agreed that the surgery shouldnt be put off.Hes a talented kid and were better with him, Henriquez said.

Its Kentucky Derby time.The crowning jewel in horse racings Triple Crown takes place May 3 and the only way to watch the best two minutes in sports is with friends while donning big hats and sipping mint juleps. So its time to plan your preppiest outfit, buy a big floppy hat and decide where to watch it.The first step is to plan what youll wear. For the ladies, sundresses are the perfect attire. Go for a bright spring color or try a fun pattern such as floral or stripes. Next, you need to coordinate your hat to your dress. Choose a color that will contrast nicely with your dress or choose a neutral-colored hat such as black or tan to which you can add color. If you dont own a big floppy hat, you can purchase one at most local boutiques. Youll also need to purchase some hat accessories. I recommend flowers, ribbon, rhinestones and feathers. Some of this you may be able to find hiding around your house. If not, try your local arts and crafts store. For the Kentucky Derby, more is better. You want to look fashionable and yet a little ridiculous, so go for big accessories that will coordinate to your dress. Some fun color combinations could include teal/pink, navy/red and purple/yellow. If you wear a purple dress, buy a yellow hat and add a purple polka-dot ribbon with a big purple flower.

Frozen foods are about to get some badly needed image therapy. With sales slipping, frozen-food makers are in the final stages of preparing a major public relations campaign to defend the nutritional reputation of their products. The push will include what are said to be the first national TV ads on behalf of the industry as a whole, as well as social media and instore promotions. Kraig Naasz, president of the American Frozen Food Institute, confirmed the industry trade group plans to launch the multiyear, multimillion dollar campaign in early May.He declined to provide details but said the thrust of the campaign would be to educate people that the freezing process is just a way to hit the pause button to lock in the nutrients, quality and taste of fresh food. Its the biggest marketing push on behalf of the industry to date and the first to include national TV ads, according to the American Frozen Food Institute.The group, based in McLean, Va., represents companies including Nestle USA, which makes Hot Pockets, Lean Cuisine and Stouffers; and ConAgra, which makes Healthy Choice and Marie Callenders. The campaign comes as Americans are increasingly reaching for foods they feel are fresh. That has hurt the performance of many frozen foods, which are often seen as being processed and full of preservatives or sodium. Between 2009 and last year, U.S. sales of frozen meals are down 3 percent at $8.92 billion, according to Euromonitor International. The market researcher is forecasting a decline of another 2 percent this year.In addition to the industry campaign, companies are working behind the scenes to communicate the benefits of frozen foods to dietitians. The hope is that such health professionals will then pass on the message to their clients.Nestle USA, for instance, later this month plans to present research it commissioned at the Experimental Biology conference that compares the nutrition of frozen foods to fast-food meals.The company also recently introduced a Balance Your Plate on a Budget meal plan featuring products such as Hot Pockets and Tombstone pizza for people on fixed incomes. The plan will be distributed to dietitians at conferences and online.Asked if the company encountered any criticism for featuring such products in meal plans designed to be healthy, Chavanne Hanson, a dietitian who works for Nestle, said that it was the exact opposite.This is realistic, this is how people eat, she said.ConAgra Foods Inc. also revamped its Healthy Choice meals to simplify the ingredients and is working on a PR campaign to communicate the changes. That push has included reaching out to dietitians employed by supermarkets.We spent months educating each of these dietitians, said Jenn Freeman, vice president and general manager for the brand.

We gladly pair it with chocolate and fruit, but it almost never makes appearances in savory dishes. But the rest of the world knows better, adding it with abandon to all manner of savory dairy, vegetable and meat dishes. Thats because a little bit of its naturally sweet, herby flavor can go a long way to playing up the savory elements of a dish. To demonstrate what a delicious addition mint can be to meaty dishes, we created these chicken wraps that are seasoned with salty capers and olives, a sweet hit of honey and a splash of lemon all flavors that meld wonderfully with fresh mint. What you need:Two tablespoons olive oil.One medium yellow onion, chopped.Two cloves garlic, minced.Two tablespoons chop ped capers.Half a cup oil-cured black olives, pitted and chopped.Pinch red pepper flakesOne tablespoon coriander seeds, crushed.Zest and juice of two lemons.2.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into 1-inch chunksOne tablespoon honey.Quarter cup chopped fresh mint.Salt and ground black pepper.Eight pita breads or baguette sections, to serve.One cup fresh ricotta cheese.One cup sliced seedless cucumber.In a large saute pan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic, capers, olive and red pepper flakes, then saute for six to eight minutes, or until the onion is tender and starting to brown. Add the coriander, lemon zest and juice, and the chicken. Cook, stirring often, until the chicken is cooked through, eight to 10 minutes. Stir in the honey and mint, then season with salt and pepper. To serve, spoon some of the chicken mixture onto each pita bread or section of baguette, then top with ricotta and cucumber slices.Start to finish: 45 minutes.Servings: Eight.Nutrition information per serving: 330 calories; 180 calories from fat (55 percent of total calories); 20 g fat (5 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 105 mg cholesterol; 9 g carbohydrate; 1 g fiber; 3 g sugar; 30 g protein; 390 mg sodium.Its a perfect accent for chicken wrapsBy ALISON LADMANAssociated PressTHE DINING TABLEAssociated Press photo by MATTHEW MEADThis is the finished minted lemon and olive chicken wraps.

To set the stage, the musical story of the birth of the republic 32 years ago p lays on a Key West stage for three nights. The story in a nutshell: The republic was founded in April 1982 to protest the installation of a U.S. 1 Border Patrol checkpoint at the top of the Keys. It created miles-long traffic jams as the Border Patrol apparently was trying to ferret out illegal immigrants and drugs. Since the federal government was treating the islands like a foreign nation, local leaders decided it would become one. They staged a ceremony seceding from the U.S., raised a quickly created Conch Republic flag, declared war on the mother country and carried it out by pelting federal agents with stale Cuban bread. Following the 60-second skirmish, they surrendered and demanded $1 billion in foreign aid which still hasnt arrived. Conch Republic, The Musical, staged by the theater group Key West Fringe, puts the story to song April 25, 26 and 27 at the San Carlos Institute on Duval Street in Key West. Curtain is at 8 p.m. each night, and tickets are $35. Monnie King wrote the playbook. Rebecca Tomlinson directs. The cast features theater veterans Laurie Breakwell, J.B. McClendon, David Black, Annie Miners, Michael McCabe, Billy Cartledge, Kyle Caskey and Tony Konrath. To get tickets, go to www.keystix.com. T he musical plays San Carlos April 25, 26, 27KEY WEST Laurie Breakwell and Billy Cartledge are among the stars of Conch Republic, The Musical.Draft Day both fumbles and scoresDraft Day, rate PG13, 109 minutes, playing in Tavernier and Key West. Draft Day is a tickingclock thriller built around the NFL draft, a movie that counts down to the fateful decision that one embattled general manager (Kevin Costner) makes with his teams first-round pick. Its a reasonably interesting to NFL fans, anyway peek behind the curtains at the wheeling, dealing and over-thinking that goes on as teams and managers and coaches try to avoid looking as if they dont know what theyre doing. Theyre nagged into making hasty or ill-advised decisions by agents and the players they represent, and showboating owners who like to make a splash get their faces on ESPN and impress the hometown folks with their football acumen. The GMs have their own slang and their own swagger, which makes this a natural for Costner, for decades the movies go-to guy for jock roles. But for the casual fan and the casual filmgoer, it can be a bit of a melodramatic bore. It doesnt really get going until the teams are truly on the clock. Costner is Sonny Weaver Jr., GM for the hapless Cleveland Browns. They have an antsy owner (Frank Langella) and a new, preening coach (Denis Leary) who likes to flash his Super Bowl ring under everyb odys nose. Will Sonny p ick a cocky, pushy defensive back (Chadwick Boseman of ) or trade up to land the Heisman Trophy winner (Josh Pence)? Whats fascinating in these wheeling-and-dealing early scenes is the way gossip gets started, the way the veteran GMs play each other and read each other. Rumors about the Heisman winner bubble to the surface. Sports-talk radio covers this sort of how much does he want to play? stuff from a speculative point of view. Draft Day sets out to show how a Johnny Manziel or Jadaveon Clowneys stock rises and falls in the hours leading up to their big payday. What doesnt work is the added melodrama in all this. Sonnys dad used to be the Browns coach. His dad just died. His mom (Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn) wont get off his back. And his not-that-secret interoffice romance (Jennifer Garner) just gave him some news. Draft Day is an NFLand ESPN-sanctioned dramedy designed to cash in on and maybe goose interest in the draft, which TV and the league have turned into a spring spectacle. It doesnt have a lot of rough edges to it, nothing unflattering to the league or the cable company in its back pocket, which only serves to remind us how this sport swallowed American sporting culture whole. Costner and Garner are good and Langella properly menacing, but Leary has lost his fastball and seems to be holding something back in his quarrel scenes with Costner. Costner has to carry the film, which he does. But he hard a time making this tale of accountants and agents and athletes with off-field issues exciting. But for the fans, its a competent eye-opener, a movie that makes you understand Jets QB Geno Smiths fury at falling out of the first round and the sort of whispering campaigns that this closed culture of front-office folks mount to let them win in May, even if they dont win in the fall.MOVIE REVIEWBy ROGER MOOREMcClatchy-Tribune 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.com NOWALLDIGITAL!SHOWTIMES FOR FRI. 4/18 -THURS.4/24 Transcendence (PG-13)1:35; 4:20; 7:05; 9:50* Heaven is for Real (PG) 1:40; 4:15; 6:50; 9:20*Captain America Winter Soldier (PG-13)1:00; 4:00; 7:00; 10:00 *Draft Day (PG-13)2:05; 4:40; 7:20; 9:55* Rio 2 (PG)2D 1:50; 6:50 3D 4:15; 9:20** Friday, Saturday only Kevin Costner is the general manager and Jennifer Garner is his office romance.
