Candidates to make it officialA week of official ballot qualifying for most candidates in the 2014 elections starts Monday in Monroe County and its already apparent voters Keyswide will have dozens of candidates from which to choose. There is a whole lot of people out there, Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin said Friday. This is a very good turnout. A lot of people announced but they havent qualified yet. That doesnt mean they all will qualify. Some announce early to see what kind of turnout they can get, they test the waters, Griffin said. If they dont see the support, they wont qualify. Qualifying is when the Elections Office determines if candidates are residents of the areas where they are running, are eligible to vote, or are convicted felons. It runs from noon Monday to noon June 20 for candidates for School Board, County Commission, Mosquito Control Board, Key West mayor, the state House of Representatives, the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board and the Key Largo Fire and Emergency Medical Services District board. Marathon, Islamorada and Layton candidates qualify later in the summer. Candidates for Circuit Court judge have already qualified. That surprised me, that there are so many candidates running for judge, Griffin said. Plantation Key-based Judge Luis Garcia was reelected with no opposition.But Key West-based incumbent Mark Jones is being challenged by Donald Barrett, and Key West-based Tegan Slaton is being challenged by Jack Bridges now a Mosquito Control com missioner andQualifying period to get on ballot starts Monday for most Keys racesELECTION 2014By LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.com SPENCERSS BACK HOME Spencer the heron is returned to Little Palm Island last week following its rehabilitation at the rescue center. The bird Little Palms mascot for nine years had been losing its balance and just wasnt acting quite right. Why Spencer was having problems, no one knows, says Wildlife Rescue Director May Totman. But a steady diet of fish and fluids got him back to his old self.Closed areas are getting second lookResponding to a handful of locals who launch boats from Card Sound Road in North Key Largo, the Monroe County Commission on Wednesday said more meetings will be held to revisit the countys decision to close areas like the popular Jet Ski Beach. County officials blocked off Jet Ski Beach, which is about 100 yards from the Card Sound Bridge, in April because revelers continuously leave it trashed, engage in fights, play loud music and unsafely operate their boats and personal watercraft. While most of the people who use the beach, and several of the other water access areas along Card Sound Road, come from MiamiDade County, some Monroe County residents and backcountry guides use the area to launch their boats. Sheriff Rick Ramsay told the five-member County Commission during its meeting Wednesday that there is no easy solution to the problem, but restricting access is the best policy for now. I hate to cut off access to the water, Ramsay said.But at the same time, policing the area, which is about 30Neugent says wrong signal may be sentBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOCounty reverses, wants $580K fineMonroe County rescinded its deal with Key Largos Marine Mammal Conservancy and now wants to be paid the entire $580,000 in code fines the dolphin and whale rescue group racked up since 2009.Most of the code violations centered on an unfinished building, along with failure to get permits or inspections for storage units, sheds, campers, fences, electrical connections and plumbing.The five-member County Commission voted May 21 to forgive 90 percent of the fines. But since then, the Reporter and Keynoter reported that the federal government had banned the MMC and other rescue groups from rehabilitating marine mammals its primary mission since November. The ban is technically temporary, but will last until National Marine Fisheries Service biologists have a better handle on a viral outbreak that has killed more than 1,300 bottlenose dolphins from New York to Central Florida. Little is known about the illness, known as morbillivirus, or how it spreads or how long it can be carried by a whale or dolphin showing no symptoms. The NMFS issued the rehabilitation ban out of fears marine mammals in the process of rehabilitation may spread morbillivirus to other captive whales and dolphins. There is also concern that asymptomatic marine mammals may spread the illness into the wild once they are released. MMC representatives asking for forgiveness of the fine never mentioned the rehab prohibition to commissioners even though the vote was contingent on the MMC using its mile markerCarruthers calls group out for no transparencyBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGO Chicks get quick rescue after tumblesBaby least terns seemed to rain from the sky at a Key Colony Beach house this past week.We got calls on four [chicks] within 48 hours, said Kelly Grinter, founder of the Marathon Wild Bird Center.They all tumbled off the same tar and gravel roof, a known nesting spot for the least tern, North Americas smallest species tern and listed as threatened in Florida.Two chicks wound up in a nearby canal but all were rescued and returned to their nest Tuesday and Wednesday.People hear loud chirps coming from these chicks that look like little cotton balls, Grinter said.Least terns prefer nesting on quiet beaches but coastal development means few of those can be found. For the past several decades, many terns switched to nesting on tar and gravel building roofs. The Walgreens at U.S. 1 and 109th Street in Marathon was built with such a roof specifically to allow least terns to nest.In the wild, chicks go into grassy areas for shade while mom and dad are out getting food, Grinter said. When they search for shade on a roof, they can gravitate toward the edge and fall off.Although the one-story drop from the Key Colony home poses no particular threat, the chicks must be returned to the nest quickly, Grinter said.Tern parents will only feed their own offspring, and the chicks need to learn their life lessons to survive in the wild, she said. If people find a chick, we need to know where it came from so we can get it back to the right place. The Key Colony homeowner has given bird-center staff permission to climb onto the roof whenever needed. Nesting begins in the spring, with chicks hatching through May and June. By August, theyre off the rooftops.Least terns start to hatch on rooftopsKEY COLONY BEACHBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWLaura Preston holds one of the least tern chicks Wednesday after it tumbled off a Key Colony Beach roof where its parents nest.See MMC, 2ASee Closures, 3ASee Elections, 2A
Two Stock Island teen agers were arrested Wednes day for allegedly stealing about 400 pounds of yellowtail snapper from a commercial fishing boat docked at the Sea Lobster Marina.Their arrests could be the tip of the iceberg, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says. The agency said in a prepared statement it received numerous reports from others around the marina area who also had fish stolen. There was another report of 50 pounds of fish stolen the following night. The suspect was identified as a 12-year-old from Stock Island. That investigation is ongoing. The yellowtail theft occurred after the boat owner returned to shore on May 30 and found the docks too busy to unload his catch. He told police he went home to see his family and thought the fish would be safe with someone sleeping on a boat docked next to his. The captain returned to the marina the following morning and found the fish, part of his 4,000-pound haul, missing. He contacted the Sheriffs Office.Police say their investigation led to a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old who live at the Stock Island Apartments. The younger teen told police he and his friend used five-gallon buckets to steal the fish. They reportedly made seven separate trips on their bicycles and sold the fish at a trailer park for $20 per bucket. Police say the pair was paid a total of $360 for the stolen fish, which was valued at $1,200. Both teens are charged with burglary, grand theft and dealing in stolen property. Anyone with information about other fish thefts from the area should contact the Sheriffs Office at 292-7060.Adding a $500,000 boat ramp to the forsaken Hickory House property was too steep a price for Monroe County commissioners.Eight years after buying the one-acre site on a Stock Island harbor, commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to sell the property for $2 million to the developers of the adjacent Oceanside Marina. The sale price means the county will take a loss of $1.1 million on the site that had long become an albatross around the County Commissions neck.To get $2 million for that fiasco would be a great recovery, Commissioner George Neugent said. Did anybody bring the champagne?We should not celebrate anything about this, Commissioner Heather Carruthers said.Not at a $1.1 million loss, Commissioner Danny Kolhage agreed.In 2006, commissioners voted 3-2 to buy the waterfront land for $3.1 million to keep it from falling into private hands during the realestate boom. None of the three supporters Sonny McCoy, Dixie Spehar and Mario DiGennaro remain on the commission today.Plans for some type of public use were undone by environmental and traffic concerns. The county began trying to unload the property in 2008 but the economic downturn made a sale that recouped most of the purchase price impossible.Kolhage this spring asked county staff to see if it was feasible to install a boat ramp at the vacant site so the county could hold onto the property for public access.Public Works Director Kevin Wilson reported Wednesday that staff estimates put cost of permitting and construction costs for a new ramp at just under $500,000 and that needed state and federal approvals were not assured. From the cost numbers Ive seen, I dont support the ramp, Kolhage said Wednesday. Commissioner David Rice said the Lower Keys have more access to ramps than most areas of the Keys. I dont think the need is significant. Im surprised we would even think about having a $3.7 million boat ramp,. Rice said. Sorry, I cant go there. Sheriff Rick Ramsay said a public boat ramp at the Hickory House could attract undesirable activity, noise and trash into a residential area. The issues that arose at the Key Haven boat ramp will move to that ramp, Ramsay said. With a residential community right there, its safe to say that its not a good mix. The Oceanside Investors group, including developer Pritam Singh, intends to use the site for a tiki bar, poolside restaurant and watersports center to complement upgrades at the main marina. Were very excited the project and would like to get this done, said Noah Singh, Pritams son. Approval to move toward the $2 million sales passed 4-0. Rice abstained because he owns a leased boat slip at the Oceanside Marina.102 property only to help stranded whales and dolphins.The Reporter and Keynoter then reported on June 6 that the MMC is facing foreclosure, and that foreclosure action was filed on May 20 a day before former MMC board Chairman Robert Coakley went before the commission asking for relief so the group could refinance the mortgage for the land it bought for $458,000 in 2009. Coakley and other MMC representatives have not replied to repeated requests for comment. Court documents show MMC representatives had a more than 50 days to inform county officials about the foreclosure threat. Lender Robert Denenberg sent a letter to the MMC on April 1 warning of the impending foreclosure if the nonprofit did not pay him more than $305,000 Denenberg says he is owed. Commissioner Heather Carruthers led the effort this week to require the fines be paid in full.After we approved forgiving 90 percent of the fines, we discovered the Marine Mammal Conservancy cant even provide their services, Carruthers said. But more so, the day before they stood before us, there had been a foreclosure action filed against them.Monroe County is named in the foreclosure lawsuit as a minor lien holder, said County Attorney Bob Shillinger. If Denenberg wins his foreclosure suit, the countys liens against the property are wiped out, Shillinger said. But if the property is worth much more that the amount owed to Denenberg, any money he gets beyond the $305,000 could go toward paying off the money MMC owes the county, Shillinger said. Commissioner George Neugent expressed some interest in the county bidding on the waterfront, 3-acre tract should the foreclosure action be successful, especially if Denenberg only wants the money he is owed and not the land.I just see some potential value in determining what the value of that piece of property is, and if it is substantially more than what is owed, then I also see some value in that we might want to be at the courthouse steps to extract any money Monroe County is owed, Neugent said. Shillinger said that if the county does want the property, and if Denenberg wins his foreclosure lawsuit, the county would have to be prepared to pay the full amount owed by MMC to the lender. We would have to come in ready with cash ready to pay off the senior mortgage, Shillinger said.The MMCs money troubles mean the nation could lose one of the few remaining volunteer groups authorized by the National Marine Fisheries Service to rehabilitate stranded marine mammals.

minutes north of Key Largo, drains resources from usual patrol areas, Ramsay said.You just cant be there all the time, he said. Its difficult to police such an outlying area.Following the Jet Ski Beach closure, the county in May closed access to a small launch from the Steamboat Creek Bridge, which is the second small bridge after the turnoff from State Road 905. At the time, county Mayor Sylvia Murphy said none of the five small bridges would be off limits to fishing, but the county would likely close more waterfront access points along Card Sound Road.Murphy said county officials are playing a Whack-aMole type game with people wanting to recreate and party along the road. When Jet Ski Beach was closed, the users would try to go to other places, Murphy said. Commissioner David Rice agreed. Theyre still moving from one spot to another, Rice said. They punched a hole in the mangroves about 300 yards into Miami-Dade County. Commissioner George Neugent agreed Miami revelers are a problem along Card Sound Road and other areas in the Keys, including spots in Islamorada like Indian Key Fill. But he worries his colleagues may be sending the wrong message to day-trippers and other tourists. I dont want anyone thinking that this county is opposed to people from Miami-Dade County coming to Monroe County, Neugent said.Grassy Key commercial lobster diver John Whalton started the discussion by asking the commission to reopen an existing ramp on the north side of Card Sound Bridge near the toll booth. Weve lost a number of ramps, both paved and dirt, Whalton said. Thats one of the last few available for people who want to do the extreme northern Keys. Rich Jones, director of the countys Marine Resources office, said the Card Sound ramp is in deplorable condition. Previous attempts to repair the ramp were stalled by jurisdiction problems with the state, he said. Commissioners also noted the Card Sound ramp has extremely limited parking, and boaters using it to launch oversized vessels sometimes caused road traffic to come to a standstill.

Monroe County commissioners voted unanimously to eliminate any Florida Keys incineration as an option in new contracts for getting rid of the countys collected tree trimmings and yard cuttings. Local environmental groups and homeowners associations objected to proposals to allow use of an aircurtain incinerator to dispose of wood debris, saying it could damage air quality and affect residents health.Lets not bring incinerators into the county, Bill Hunter of the Sugarloaf Shores Homeowners Associa tion told commissioners at their Marathon meeting. You saw a lot of pushback on local air-curtain incineration. That has not changed.In November, commissioners were poised to give a Lower Keys contractor approval to proceed with a two-year pilot program to use an air-curtain burner about the size of a semitrailer that is designed to contain smoke from burning wood debris.The idea was to reduce costs of having the waste trucked to a mainland wasteto-energy incinerator. Other local sites for additional incinerators were being considered.By Wednesday, commissioners had changed their minds. From the day we mentioned incineration, I didnt think it was a bad idea, Mayor Sylvia Murphy said. Apparently the rest of the county did. Commissioner George Neugent acknowledged an outpouring of complaints from neighborhoods near the proposed Lower Keys sites. By considering the burn option, hauling contractors are likely to offer lower perton rates, he said.A request for proposals on yard-waste disposal was approved without the local incineration option. Company offers are due by late July.Crosswalk talkAlso Wednesday, commissioners told staff to review a controversial pedestrian crosswalk in Key Largo. The U.S. 1 signal installed by the state Department of Transportation at mile marker 99.7 became active in late April. Pedestrians push a button that triggers flashing yellow lights that tell drivers to slow or stop. Many residents have protested that the signal is confusing and could lead to pedestrian injuries and auto crashes. Another crosswalk at the intersection is close at mile marker 100.Sheriff Rick Ramsay is among them. We dont want it, he said last week. He called the crossing very dangerous.Neugent raised the issue Wednesday. The sheriff wants to get rid of it, Neugent said. Its surprising that he took such a hard-line position. Im deducing from that, we have a problem. County Public Works Director Kevin Wilson said the County Commission several years ago requested some type of U.S. 1 crossing in the area. The need was identified some time ago, and the [Florida Department of Transportation] put in their work plan, Wilson said. Now that its in place, everybody seems surprised that its there.Operations of the Key Largo signal have been tweaked to reduce the effect on traffic flow, he said. Theres a lot of light and heat but I dont know if theres a lot of data, Wilson said, noting the success of similar signals in St. Petersburg.Murphy wants to let DOT deal with the situation. Its their road and their signal. Commissioner Danny Kolhage disagreed, If theres a problem, the sheriff has to deal with it. Thats why were involved.Probation problemCourt Options Inc., a private firm that has overseen misdemeanor-probation and pre-trial diversion programs locally since 2007, forgot to submit a new contract proposal by the countys advertised May 8 deadline. But three other companies have submitted packages and were ranked by a selection committee last week. Court Options management pleaded, hat in hand, Wednesday for a chance to join the process, citing their wide support from local criminal-justice agencies. When I learned we failed to respond [to a request for price quotes], I was flabbergasted, said Chief Operating Officer Eduardo Lacasa. I couldnt believe it.... We fell asleep at the wheel. A commission motion to reopen the application process failed, 3-2. Kolhage said dismissing three valid bids because a fourth bidder wanted in would put us on shaky ground.... There was not a defect in the process. You knew the termination of the contract was imminent. A decision to award the contract was delayed until June 30.Neighbors outcry means current haul-out continuesCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comStill no answer on finance specificsInterim Marathon City Manager Mike Puto says the breadth of the request, not a lack of effort, again held up a detailed report on the citys contracted Finance Department this week. The City Council has been considering the possibility of getting rid of Bishop Rosasco & Co., which runs the citys finances, in favor of an inhouse department. On April 22, the council directed it staff to investigate the feasibility as Rosasco stepped down as finance chief, though his firm still overseas the finances. Puto was expected at Tuesdays City Council meeting to provide the board with specific Bishop Rosasco contract figures requested by Councilman Mark Senmartin. He wants to know the complete cost of outsourcing the service. Bishop Rosasco had previously provided initial figures that show with its fixedrate ($365,736 per year) annual contract, hourly billing utility finance contract and other billing contracts (city manager recruitment), the city paid an average of $499,629 per year from 2008 through 2013. Tuesday, Puto provided a report to the council, but it was handed out moments before the meeting began and did not include finalized financial information or a requested pros-and-cons analysis of an in-house finance department. I have maybe 4,000 pages here, Puto told the Keynoter. Im trying to get them the numbers, but its labor-intensive. Im trying to do the best I can to get this done and get them to them. However, the 4,000 pages to which Puto referred reference credit card bills for travel and other expenses, as well as copy making and other stuff not included in the contracts. Puto and Finance Director Jennifer Johnson, a Rosasco employee who replaced Rosasco as the finance chief, explained to the council last month that credit card expenses are itemized, with each expense having its own receipt and paperwork. Mayor Dick Ramsay said hes about fed up with directing staff to bring back information.

Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYThis is the Marathon Roller Rink at 11600 Overseas Highway in Marathon on Oct. 17, 1974. It was just before the rise in popularity of roller disco, which saw roller rinks designed with disco balls, swirling lights and more. The height of roller disco was around 1979, when the movie Roller Boogey starring Linda Blair, Jim Bray and Beverly Garland came out. The story: Skaters band together to keep their roller-disco open. The site of the Marathon rink is now a Discount Auto Parts store.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALFederal shield law protects everybodyLETTERS TO THE EDITORDont attract crimeAs one who once carried the badge and gun, I can say most interactions between law enforcement officers and citizens are not pleasant encounters. Intervention, interrogation or incarceration do not make for happy campers. Likewise, victims of crimes are angry, scared and often hysterical when responded to. Thus I was more than impressed to read of Sheriff Rick Ramsays outreach program that brings him and his staff in contact with the community and coincidentally practices an established policing practice once called the broken-window theory. Put into practice by a Key West police chief two decades ago, it was proven that crime gravitates to areas where it looks like no one cares. Thus a cleanup of trash, replacing broken windows and removal of graffiti says not in this neighborhood. The Keys are fortunate to have a lawman that not only understands these dynamics but practices them and genuinely cares about his county. The bottom line for any command is results, and Ramsay is demonstrating this by double-digit reductions in crime in Monroe County. Spray on, graffiti fighters. Bob Guerin MarathonHeim will be missedOn May 17, St. James the Fisherman Episcopal Church held a memorial service and celebration of life for Harold Fredrik Heim. Hal was a veteran of World War II who was part of the Normandy invasion and saw those waters turn red. Thus it was quite appropriate to celebrate his life on May 17, as our nation celebrated Armed Forces Day. Hal was also well known for his community involvement and activism. It is not a stretch to acknowledge that the 18-Mile Stretch was closed down on May 17, just around the time of Hals service at St. James. Hal was one of the devoted citizens who lobbied to have the Stretch renovated. Further, the actual color of the stretch was the suggestion of Hal Belize blue. Hal is survived by his two daughters, Susan and Cybil. A plaque was blessed and placed in the garden in honor of our beloved Hal Heim. Rev. Thomas Graf St. James the Fisherman Episcopal Church TavernierNo bidding? Why not?The old saying that you can fool some of the people all the time but you cant fool all the people all the time was never more true than at the May 21 Monroe County Commission meeting in Key Largo. Theres where a majority of the commission rammed through countywide waste services of more than $150 million without bidding based on slick presentations by the vendors with no independent corroboration. There were myriad objections by attending residents that it should be put out for bid. Allowing for arguments sake that we have the best service at the best price now, there is no way to prove that except by bidding. I resent the fact that the majority of the commission thinks that the public would buy the presentation made at the meeting, with the facts and figures provided by the vendor only. Another old saying comes to mind: If it walks like a duck.... Howard Gelbman Key LargoGuns arent main problemI cannot understand that the real cause of gun violence is ignored. Our youth, as well as others, are exposed to a continuous scene of violence. Young people spend endless hours playing video games on devices, where they kill people. Movies are vehicles for showing mass killings and other forms of violence. Many of the shooters have admitted to trying to emulate these games, yet no one objects. Its always the gun that is at fault. Mark Dimpflmaier Little Torch KeyObama administration tries impeding avenue to truth by subpoenaing reporterA decision by the U.S. Supreme Court last week to blithely ignore the First Amendment rights of journalists and their essential need to protect confidential sources makes it more necessary than ever for Congress to enact a federal shield law. The action involves a confrontation between the media and the Obama administration in the case of James Risen, a New York Times reporter facing jail for refusing to identify a confidential source. The Risen case began when the Justice Department issued a subpoena seeking information about his source for a chapter of his 2006 book, State of War. The Obama administration, which has pursued leaks aggressively, filed briefs contending that reporters have no privilege to refuse to provide direct evidence of criminal wrongdoing by confidential sources. Shield laws in 48 states, however, have found ways to deal with this difficult question in a way that satisfies both the states interests in pursuing criminal activity and the publics interest in ensuring robust coverage of government activity and possible misdeeds. The existence of laws at a state level implicitly recognizes that without the ability to promise confidentiality to sources, reporters are denied an essential tool of their trade. Confidential sources in government are always reluctant to come forward. The absence of a shield law that protects them and reporters they communicate with hardens that reluctance. The federal government is loath to extend a similar blanket guarantee of protection, contending that its obligation to protect national security makes it different from the states. A well-crafted shield law, however, would recognize the difference between cases of extreme and urgent sensitivity when journalists would have to cooperate and instances when the government merely seeks to cover up embarrassing or inconvenient disclosures with no genuine security implications. That is information the public needs to have. In recent days there has been positive movement that suggests now is the time for supporters to step up their activity. House members voted 225 to 183 late last month to approve an amendment to an appropriations bill that would bar the Justice Department from using funds that would compel a journalist or reporter to testify about confidential sources. While this action is welcome as a sign of sentiment among a majority of lawmakers, it is not an adequate substitute for a well-thought-out solution that strikes a balance between the freedom to report important information and national security. Nor does it grapple with the issue of who can claim protection as a journalist. Ultimately, we should not have to rely on the goodwill of a government official to protect the publics right to know. Thats why advocates of the First Amendment must keep pressuring Congress to approve a federal shield law. Miami HeraldCity, developer at oddsThe developer of a proposed 106-unit rental complex on U.S. 1 near mile marker 50.5 told the Marathon City Council on Tuesday that the citys unwillingness to give the project market-rate housing permit allocations could mean scrapping plans there altogether. From our perspective, the term that might be used would be deal-breaker, Jack Weir, president of Palm Beach Gardens-based Eastwind Development, said at a public hearing on the issue. Not going to work. The council recognized the need for a moderate income rental complex and voted 4-0 last month to grant the project a development agreement, conditional-use permit and 43 affordablehousing permit allocations. However, the board declined to part with 19 coveted market-rate permits for the so-called Tarpon Harbour project that would consist of 53 twoand threebedroom duplexes. Of the 106 units, 44 would be market-rate and 62 would be workforce housing under income guidelines. Weir told the council that the market-rate permits are necessary to offset the cost of the affordable units. He presented several options to the board, the first of which was to award all 19 units requested for the project. If you do that, I guarantee well be moving dirt in four months and these units will be up and running in a year, he said. The second option would be what Planning Director George Garrett recommended last month, to award the project nine market-rate units and for Weir to buy 10 on the open market.This isnt perfect; itll delay us at some point, Weir said. If I were to bet, I would bet that we could get it done.The third option was to continue with the current approach, which Weir said would lead his investors to demand he reconfigure the project and build something that makes money. Ultimately, the issue was tabled because the council was unable to discuss a market-rate compromise with Weir. The hearing was advertised only to approve the conditional use, development agreement and affordablehousing units. Eastwind Development is unrelated to the low-income Eastwind Apartments.MARATHONCost of historic lens murkyThe Marathon City Council on Tuesday agreed to spend as much as $9,250 to investigate the true cost associated with moving a historic Fresnel lighthouse lens back to Marathon. The lens, owned by the U.S. Coast Guard and on display at the Key West Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters Museum, was originally used at Sombrero Key Lighthouse.The 156-foot-tall Som brero lighthouse was built in 1857 and 1858 and first lighted on March 17, 1858, according to the Florida Keys Reef Lights Founda tion. It was automated in 1960 and the lens, made in France, was removed in 1983.Vice Mayor Chris Bull has pushed for the lens to be incorporated in the planned new city hall lobby, but interim Manager Mike Puto said that could cost more than $40,000.Im still willing to go forward with the investigation, Bull said, noting that the lens would not have to be in a temperature-specific enclosure as originally discussed.There are considerations, but it doesnt need to be to the extreme people say, he added. In a Monday memo to Puto, Community Services Director Nancy Nuner summarized her cost discussions with the Key West Art & Historical Society about the lens:$42,000 to dismantle the lens, pack it for shipping, transport it (with insurance) and reassemble it.If a replacement historic lens must be given to the Key West museum, such as the Sand Key lens in storage near Washington, D.C., the cost for both projects combined would be about $72,000.In addition, Nuner noted, the city must receive Coast Guard approval to take the lens and modify city hall plans to accommodate the lens and provide $1 million insurance coverage. The $9,250 would be paid to Marathons city-hall design team of Key West architect William Horn, Key West-based K2M Design and Marathon-based Solaria Design and Consulting Co.Solaria worked up an estimate for the city that includes 58 paid hours for designing in, installing and operating the historic lens. Solaria says the lens would require special labor requirements for maintenance; energy for climate control and lighting; specific lens testing and maintenance; and liability insurance.City to spend around $9,000 to find outBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keys Sanitary Services in the Upper Keys is among the companies that received a contract extension for trash hauling.

The Internal Revenue Service wants to read taxpayers their rights. The agency is publicizing a bill of rights for taxpayers, including the right to quality service, the right to confidentiality and the right to a fair and just tax system, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday. Koskinen acknowledged that none of the 10 rights is new. All are buried somewhere in the thick pages of the federal tax code.But going forward, the IRS will post the rights at IRS offices, and include an explanation of each one when the agency contacts taxpayers by mail. Koskinen said the list will be included in about 30 million mailings a year.Were not creating new rights here, Koskinen said. Were really trying to compile them in a simple understandable format for taxpayers.Some rights will be limited by budget constraints and the law. For example, the right to quality service says, Taxpayers have the right to receive prompt, courteous, and professional assistance in their dealings with the IRS. However, Koskinen said, budget cuts have diminished the agencys ability to answer questions from taxpayers.As for the right to a fair and just tax system, Koskinen said: We do the best we can with the code we have.Koskinen took over the top IRS job in January, tasked with stabilizing an agency that had spent much of past year under siege. Several top officials, including the acting commissioner, were forced to resign last year after revelations that IRS agents had improperly singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for taxexempt status. Koskinen said the new initiative is designed to improve taxpayer confidence in the IRS and the law. But, he said, it was not prompted by the ongoing controversy.Everything that Im doing is in a context in which weve obviously had and still have six investigations going on, Koskinen said. But, he added, This was not something that I thought of in terms of those investigations.Koskinen said he got the idea from Nina E. Olson, the national taxpayer advocate. Olson has been lobbying for the taxpayer Bill of Rights since 2007. She runs an independent office within the IRS.But some are difficult to really enforceBy STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressTAXESIRS promotes bill of rights
A 44-year-old Marathon man remained in the Monroe County Detention Center Friday in lieu of $35,000 bond following his Tuesday arrest on a felony charge of video voyeurism. Jeffrey Burkhalter who has an extensive Keys rap sheet allegedly took photos of a naked 4year-old boy. He was arrested after he lost his phone, someone found it at Walgreens in North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West and turned it into city police. The man who found the Samsung smart phone tried to contact the owner but, in doing so, reportedly found on it the photographs of the child and photos of other nude children. Police obtained a search warrant for the phone and had a forensic analysis done by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Police say from May 9 to May 31, Burkhalter was actively viewing photos/videos of prepubescent children on known picturesharing websites. Based on the location some of the pictures were taken, police were able to contact the father of the 4year-old. The man told police he doesnt know Burkhalter, an arrest affidavit says. After being arrested, Burkhalter admitted taking the photos and said he had downloaded other photos of nude children, the affidavit says. Burkhalter has an extensive arrest record in Monroe County dating back to a fraud charge in 2005. He has also been arrested for marijuana, cocaine other drug possession charges; driving with a suspended license; theft; and multiple probation violations or failing to appear for court dates. Grocery chain WinnDixie plans to upgrade and expand its Marathon store into an adjacent space most recently occupied by pharmacy giant CVS. Winn-Dixie and Ross Cooper, southern region vice president for Kimco, a New York City-based real estate investment trust that bought the shopping center at mile marker 50 from the grocery chain last fall, confirmed the plans.We do plan on expanding into the vacant space, WinnDixie spokeswoman Mayra Hernandez said. I dont have the full details on what that looks like because its in the works and being finalized.We havent started any construction discussions or what the renovations would be, but I do know thats the plan, she added. Kimco said in May that it plans a redevelopment of the entire shopping center but to what the extent is unclear. We are still evaluating our plans for updating and renovating the shopping center, but were working with Winn-Dixie on that, Cooper said. They plan to be there for a long time. Kimco declined to renew the CVS lease and the pharmacy chain closed on May 10. Customers of the stores pharmacy had their accounts transferred across the street to the Publix pharmacy. Payless ShoeSource, Kmart and the Brass Monkey Lounge are the other businesses in the roughly 106,000-square-foot complex. It appears those businesses will remain for the foreseeable future. We have no immediate plans to replace any of the tenants there, Cooper said. In addition, Cooper said a long-vacant corner space bordered by Kmart and the Brass Monkey could have a tenant in the near future. We have one lease were negotiating for one of the vacant spaces, he said. Kimco owns about 850 properties in 42 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico and South America. The company has been around since 1958 and its first property, which it still owns, is the Coral Way Shopping Center in Miami.

Wells, an outstanding hurler and hitter, was part of the 2014 Conch team that went 26-4-1, seeing its season end with a 5-4 loss to North Broward Prep in the Region 4A championship game in Coconut Creek. FSU was 43-17 this past season. School is over but not the drillsThe day after the end of the school year, the Coral Shores High School campus seemed deserted. It was difficult to even find an unlocked door to enter the school complex. Most students stayed far away from the school, gone off to get a head start on their summer plans. However, a faint drum beat that echoed though the corridors did lead to one remaining group of students: The dedicated kids of the Coral Shores marching band. It was once again time for band camp, the annual intensive four-day workout of learning new music, tackling the difficult task of marching while playing that music and, perhaps most importantly, learning how to work as a team. Long days of practice started at 9 a.m., with meetings and team-building exercises in the gym, then working in sections, a quick lunch, then marching drills out on the field until 6 p.m. This year is awesome. We thought nobody was going to come out for band, but we got this great turnout of enthusiastic band geeks said Francisco Moc, entering his third year in the marching band. Moc and the other section leaders took the new members under their wings and helped them ease into band life. Hurray! I have two new flute players, section leader Hannah Vinney said as she introduced the newbies. I got a squirt gun and if they play a wrong note, Ill squirt them. But I am fair. Ill let them squirt me, too. Trumpet section leader Jesus Mora patiently demonstrated to his section members, over and over, the proper way to cleanly snap their horns up to playing position, then back down again.

I was as excited as if she would have told me she was having her first baby. We promptly named her red beauty Scarlet. Birkins are the holy grail of handbags. Handmade by Hermes of materials including crocodile, ostrich and diamondstudded leather, the bags are produced in limited quantities that create exclusivity for owners. Birkins are a status symbol few will have the privilege of knowing. Victoria Beckham supposedly own more than 100 Birkins worth more than $2 million.Birkins are not within the realm of possibility for most of us but that doesnt mean you shouldnt own a great bag. There are four things on which every woman should splurge: A great haircut, a classic watch, quality shoes and a beautiful bag. These are things that are worn daily and can transform a simple look into a fabulous outfit. If you invest wisely in these four pieces, your outfits will always look chic no matter what youre wearing. Everyones splurge level is different. Some people can afford several thousand dollars for a bag, while others may only have $100 to spend. Regardless of your budget, your money will go further if you are smart about how you spend it.

The entire band worked with instructor Jeff Shipman on the basics of the marching show for next year how to properly mark time and other small moves, which they practiced repeatedly until Shipman emitted a loud, Woohoo! You got it! Push and 1, 2, 3; push and back 2, 3 was said in unison by the entire band, standing in formation as instructor Becky Terry drilled them on one small foot movement over and over. Repetition was the key.During afternoon sessions, small groups of musicians, with their section leaders in charge, sat together in nooks and crannies around the school learning the new music.Out on the field in the afternoon was the true test of how all the basics came together. Its hard to march and play at the same time, said Mikey Price, an incoming freshman who was having his first experience with marching band. On the field, first came stretching and strengthening exercises. Youve got to have the strength to hold up your instrument for the whole 15 minutes of the show, Shipman said. They drilled in parade formation around the track, getting the feel of playing and marching together as a unit. Sun and 90-degree temperatures did not deter them, and Terry made sure all were wearing hats and took frequent water breaks. Finally, they worked on some of the field maneuvers from the marching show they will put on in the coming school year. They practiced, without complaint, until it was getting near 6 p.m. It was the end of their day, and the band still played on.Terry puts charges through the drillsFrom Band, 1B Photo by DONNA DIETRICHEssential to the band is the percussion, being practiced here.

When shopping for a new bag, make sure that it can hold MILK money, identification, lipstick and keys. It should also be able to fit your cell phone. If the bag is too small to carry these things, dont buy it. A bag that small isnt functional and therefore wont get worn.There are four essential handbags no wardrobe should be without:Oversized tote: Choose a durable fabric that can be used for both work and travel. Choose a style with minimal hardware that can hold both your computer and a few personal items.Black clutch: This is a wardrobe staple that can be used for casual occasions and evening wear. A simple black clutch will always be in style and be worn for decades.Classic handbag: Choose a simple and sturdy silhouette in a neutral hue such as tan, brown, black or navy. This is your everyday bag that can be worn with every outfit. I would argue that deep burgundy, red or snakeskin bags are also great neutrals that can be used every day and double as statement bags.Statement clutch: You need one outfit-maker clutch in a bright color. This is the bag that transforms a simple look to fabulous. Christinas Boutique at 10990 Overseas Highway in Marathon has expanded its selection of womans apparel and accessories to include consignment items. Its large selection of handbags will provide you with plenty of arm candy from which to choose and will help you find several essential bags to cross off your list.Handbag and accessories designer extraordinaire Frank Zambrelli says: Of course, every woman should have at least one over-the-top bag. To really experience life, you need to flirt with extremes. A life lived safely in monotone is not a life lived at all.So go bright, bold and beautiful for your next arm candy.

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday, June 14, 2014 A weekend for the Grateful DeadThe music and lifestyle of the Grateful Dead, considered by many to be the preeminent jam band of the 1960s, and 1970s, 1980s and mid-1990s, is celebrated in the Lower Keys next weekend with whats called the Grateful Summer Music and Arts Festival. The Dead were founded in Palo Alto, Calif., in 1964 as the Warlocks and became the Grateful Dead a year later. Original members were lead guitarist Jerry Garcia (whose death in 1995 spelled the end of the band but not subsequent tours of band members), rhythm guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh, drummer Bill Kreutzmann, and singer and keyboardist Ron Pigpen McKernan. In subsequent years, drummer Mickey Hart was added to the mix. Keyboardists Keith Godchaux, Brent Mydland and Vince Welnick would also join the Dead in succession after Pigpens death from alcoholism but all ultimately died. Godchauxs wife Donna was a backup singer for a while, and Tom Constanten played keyboards for two years. Considered a member was songwriter Robert Hunter. The band, which had few hit records, was known for its concerts, which went on for four or more hours; and seemingly endless touring. The Deads free-living lifestyle was indicated by its willingness to let anyone tape its shows considered taboo by other artists because that would eat into album sales. But the Dead didnt care they even set aside sections at their concerts for tapers to set up elaborate recording systems. And out of their concerts sprung mini communities vendors setting up outside the venues selling everything from tie-dye shirts to sandwiches. And, of course, drugs (Garcia was known as Capt. Trips), all surrounded by sophisticated psychedelic artwork inspired by skeletons, roses and dancing bears. The Grateful Summer Music and Arts Festival, set for June 21 and 22 at Boondocks Grille and Drafthouse on Ramrod Key, mile marker 27, aims to recreate all of that. Admission is free and the two days include tribute bands such as Unlimited Devotion out of Miami, as well as, bizarrely, a Pink Floyd tribute show. There will also be an artists village such as those set up outside Dead shows. The music runs all day both days starting at 1 p.m.Tribute bands, open-air mart bring back eraLAttitudes StaffFLASHBACK Quartet plays on June 16 The Fort-Lauderdalebased South Florida Symphony brings the Blue Door String Quartet back to the Keys on June 16 for a performance featuring the works of composers Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Samuel Barber. Mark your calendar for the 7 p.m. show at the Tennessee Williams Cabaret at Florida Keys Community College, 5901 College Road on Stock Island. At the behest of symphony conductor Sebrina Alfonso, the Blue Door String Quartet becomes the Quartet-in-Residence for the performance. Its members are Whitney La Grange (violin), Funda Cizmeclioglu (violin), Mario Gotoh (violist) and Arthur Cook (cellist). Tchaikovsky is best known for his ballet music (The Nutcracker). Barbers String Quartet No. 2 contains the music for Adagio for Strings, the middle movement. The first time Toscanini played the orchestral version, he remarked, Semplice e bella (simple and beautiful). The evening will start with a reception at 7 p.m. followed by the performance at 7:30. Tickets are $25 for general seating, $35 for reserved seats.

Best of all, the film never makes its characters into stoic or tragic heroes, choosing instead to highlight what makes them human their hopes, their fears, their anger, the way they learn to live with knowing theyre going to die sooner rather than later. As the film opens, Hazel (Shailene Woodley of Divergent, The Spectacular Now and The Descendants) has grown particularly adept at whistling past the graveyard. Diagnosed at a young age with thyroid cancer that traveled to and weakened her lungs, Hazel is never entirely alone. Her constant companion is the oxygen tank she drags behind her wherever she goes, though she doesnt go many places. Shes already got her GED and doesnt have many friends, presumably because she has been in and out of hospitals since she was a child. Worried about her isolation and depression, her concerned parents (Laura Dern and Sam Trammell) nag her into attending a support group for young cancer patients. There she meets Gus (Ansel Elgort), the most charming 18-yearold ever to set foot on the planet. Heres how appealing he is: Hes the sort of boy who puts a cigarette between his lips but never lights it, a metaphor for spitting in deaths eye. You can hear the teenage hearts pounding faster from here. Gus, whose leg was amputated as part of his treatment, is cancer-free when he meets Hazel; hes only at the meeting to support his best friend Isaac (Nat Wolff), whos losing his eyes to another form of the disease. Hazel likes Gus cheery insouciance right away but is wary of any deeper feelings; an only child, she already feels guilty enough about whats going to happen to her parents when she dies. But of course, Gus and Hazel are young and attractive, and some things are simply meant to be. I fell in love the way you fall asleep, Hazel finally admits. Slowly, and then all at once. The plot is driven by the planning of a trip to Amsterdam to meet a reclusive writer (Willem Dafoe in full Drunken Unkempt Novelist mode) whose novel about cancer Hazel adores and has practically memorized. Some drama ensues over her health will she be well enough to travel so far? but the real power of The Fault in Our Stars lies in the simple moments between Gus and Hazel, when theyre picnicking at a park watching kids play on a sculpture of a skeleton or joking around with Isaac or dressing up for their first grown-up date and beaming at each other over risotto. The key to any romantic movie is the chemistry of its stars, and Woodley and Elgort, who played brother and sister in the sci-fi adventure Divergent, are simply terrific together. She lights up in his presence; he handles the most awkward dialogue about oblivion and love so deftly, you almost dont notice its bit too florid to sound real. Also a standout is Dern as Hazels relentlessly upbeat mother, who can never quite fully mask her ever-present tension and fear. Shes got positive thinking in a death grip, which irritates the practical Hazel. The scene in which she finally acknowledges to her daughter that shes making plans for her own life after Hazels death is one of the films most wrenching and moving scenes (and this is a movie with plenty of wrenching and moving scenes). The Fault in Our Stars tells us we dont have to leave behind a legion of adoring fans when we exit this life. Just being truly, madly, deeply loved by a few good people is more than enough to make our existence worthwhile. Two young actors are terrific together From Fault, 4B Second times a charm Jump Street, rated R, 112 minutes, playing in Tavernier and Key West. Things are always worse the second time around, the deputy police chief warns the buddy-cop team of Jenko and Schmidt in Jump Street. Hes talking about their next assignment, but of course, its an inside joke with the audience. Jump Street, starring the inspired comic duo of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, is a sequel, and movie sequels are indeed often worse (especially when, as the chief also points out, the budgets bigger the second time around.) Self-referential jokes aside, things arent worse the second time around for Hill, Tatum and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Its fine to make fun of sequels and this movie does, all the way to a fabulous ending-credits bit that steals the film when you know youve made a pretty darned good one yourself. Not that this film is perfect some jokes go too far or too long or both, and one running gag involving prison sex is gratuitous, ill-advised, unfunny and, well, wed say more but three adjectives are enough. Many more jokes, though spoken and visual succeed beautifully. And the cast? Its a pretty heavenly group, anchored of course by Hill and Tatum, who have a Laurel-and-Hardy-like implausible chemistry that keeps you laughing pretty much no matter what theyre doing. If you never saw Jump Street, no worries the filmmakers bring you up to speed fast. The last film saw Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Hill) go undercover to high school. This time, its college theyre ordered to infiltrate, to thwart a nasty drug ring. (Im the first person in my family to pretend to go to college, Jenko says proudly.) Its part of the joke that the pasty, pudgy Schmidt, especially, hardly looks college-age and doesnt really try, despite his need to blend in. Tell us about the war any of them, one student, Mercedes (a terrific Jillian Bell), says to him mockingly. Even less plausible than Schmidt being an undergrad: That the exquisitely gorgeous art major Maya, Mercedes roommate (Amber Stevens), would somehow hook up with him when hes nothing but bumbling in her presence. But as they say in college, whatever. Maybe shes blown away by his (terrible, and very funny) attempt at slam poetry. The college setting provides its usual comic fodder, starting with a cute montage involving things you need to live in college dorms: Pop-up laundry hampers, bean-bag chairs, lava lamps, shower poofs, a bacon machine (dont ask.) Theres also the obligatory frat house, which sets up the amusing BFF relationship between studly Jenko and studly frat leader Zook (Wyatt Russell, who brings to mind a younger Owen Wilson.) Jenko bonds easily with Zook, who lures him onto the football team, where Jenko succeeds dramatically. The two bond so well that Jenko and Schmidt have a sort of buddy-cop breakup. Maybe we should, you know, investigate other people, Jenko tells a wounded Schmidt. But the guys need to crack the drug case moneys running out, according to their supervising captain, Dickson, played by Ice Cube in a humorous performance that seethes all kinds of rage professional, personal, you name it. And so tracking down the villains, we eventually arrive in of course Mexico for Spring Break. There, watch for a weirdly hilarious fistfight between Schmidt and one of the characters weve mentioned earlier. Its one of the films best scenes, but no scene in the film proper rivals the closing credits a sendup of sequels that includes its own notable celebrity cameo and is alone worth the price of admission. Will there be a Jump Street? If things are always worse the second time, wouldnt they be even worse the third? With Lord and Millers track record, thats hardly a given. Jump Street is even better than the firstBy JOCELYN NOVECKAssociated PressMOVIE REVIEW Photo courtesy SONY PICTURESJonah Hill (left) and Channing Tatum go to college in Jump Street.
