I will not be issuing an order from the bench today, Garcia said as he opened the hearing for summary judgment before a packed Upper Keys courthouse.Huntsman and Jones, who met at a gay pride celebration and have been a couple for 11 years, sued Monroe County Clerk Amy Heavilin in April for a marriage license. Their case mirrors a similar suit in Miami-Dade County, in which six same-sex couples and advocacy group Equality Florida Institute sued County Clerk Harvey Ruvin for the right to marry.Heavilin is not defending the Keys lawsuit. But Florida Assistant Attorney General Adam Tanenbaum is defending both cases. Just as he did last week before Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel, Tanenbaum told Garcia he should not dismiss Floridas constitutional gay marriage ban, which passed in 2008 with the support of about 62 percent of voters. It remains for this court simply to respect the policy decision made by voters, Tanenbaum told Garcia. The gay-marriage battle is being waged across the nation. A federal judge last week ruled Kentuckys same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. According to the group Freedom to Marry, LGBT advocates have won 23 times in federal, state and appellate courts since June 2013, when the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a key portion of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. Last year, Supreme Court justices determined the federal government must recognize same-sex marriages, but did not address whether state marriage bans are legal. Conservative advocacy groups were not allowed to join the Miami-Dade and Monroe cases as defendants. Instead, Garcia and a Miami-Dade judge have allowed them to speak as friends of the court. The plaintiffs argument with regard to same-sex marriage has no boundaries, Mat Staver, founder of the conservative Liberty Counsel, told Garcia. The plaintiffs argument is not to just redefine marriage to include two people of the same sex. The implications of that is if you include two people of the same sex, thenHuntsman, Jones want state ban to be overturnedBy STEVE ROTHAUSsrothaus@MiamiHerald.comSAME-SEX MARRIAGEPhoto by VINCENT DEVRIES/www.vincentdevriesphoto.comKey West resident Aaron Huntsman receives a hug from a friend before Mondays hearing at the Plantation Key courthouse. A judge is considering a motion to overturn Floridas ban on same-sex marriages, which would allow Huntsman to marry his partner, William Lee Jones.Overnight ferry wants dock spaceLots of businesses in Key West have lobbied for years to try to get larger cruise ships to make port calls in Key West. Well, one company is looking the other way, looking to bring in a smaller boat that would accommodate travelers to the Southernmost City. At 8 tonight, the Key West Bight Management District Board will take up a proposal from Key West Great Escape to operate a 177-foot boutique cruise ship with 40 cabins accommodating up to 80 people. The vessel would come from Marco Island and stay for two nights and dock at the Key West Bight Ferry Terminal at the end of Caroline and Grinnell streets. Key West Great Escape is asking to set up the three-day tours twice weekly. Doug Bradshaw, director of port and marine services in Key West, thinks its a great idea but expects some opposition. This would be something new and unique that, to my knowledge, weve never done on a small scale, Bradshaw said. To us, it gets people into town withoutIt would be new endeavor for the cityBy JESSICA MACHETTAKeynoter ContributorKEY WESTStudy: Disease hard on MarathonWest and central Marathon are perhaps the unhealthiest areas in all of the Florida Keys, according to a Monroe County Health Department study. According to age-adjusted data the agency compiled in May and released last week, those two areas from 2008 through 2012 had more instances of death, cancer, liver disease, heart disease and unintentional injury than most of the Keys 26 micro-communities. I must warn you that these numbers should be interpreted with caution, Health Department health educator consultant Alison Kerr said.The U.S. Census Bureau determines what micro-communities are depending on demographics and population characteristics, Kerr said. West Marathon is the 3.34square-mile area from the Seven Mile Bridge to roughly Sombrero Beach Road, while central Marathon is the 1.83square-mile area from that road east to 70th Street.The statistics Kerr used to compile data for an upcoming community health improvement plan came via the Census Bureau andHealth agency wants to know how to proceedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYSMarathon man dies in boat accidentThe owner of a Marathon boat-rental company died Saturday when he fell overboard north of Vaca Cut. All Aboard Boat Rentals owner Brian M. Aronoff, 49, was hit by his own boat in the 10:30 a.m. accident near Russell Key, in the Gulf of Mexico. Aronoff was alone on a 1995 Maycraft center console underway to help a customer aboard one of his rentals when he fell overboard, says an initial report by Investigator Jeremy Munkelt of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It is still unknown why or what happened that caused the operator to be ejected from his own vessel, FWC Officer Bobby Dube, an agency spokes man, said Monday. Aronoff suffered his fatal wounds when hit by the boat. The unoccupied Maycraft was still circling when FWC patrol boats reached the scene. Officers laid their anchor lines in the water to foul the boats propeller and bring it to a halt.FWC officers are checking the Maycraft to see if there were any mechanical problems with the vessel or its steering system, Dube said. Cause of death is pending a final report from the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office. Aronoff was a native of coastal Massachusetts who spent most of his childhood and his adult life fishing in the waters of Boston Harbor and Cape Cod, says a biography at the All Aboard Boat Rentals site. A frequent Florida Keys vacationer, Aronoff moved to Marathon in 2007. He worked in the boat rentalbusiness for several years before opening his firm on Coco Plum. Aronoffs death was the only serious boating incident reported by the FWC during the July 4 holiday period. FWC officers arrested three boat operators over the three-day weekend for being under the influence. One was arrested around 5 p.m. July 4 off Key West; the other two were arrested in the late afternoon Saturday.Aronoff falls from vessel, struck by itMIDDLE KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgSTARRING ROLE FOR MARKET Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOW A television crew making a new Keys-based series for Netflix gets ready for location shooting at the Sunrise Market, near mile marker 92 in Tavernier, early Monday.

An 18-year-old Broward County man died Monday night in Miami from injuries sustained in a June 23 car crash near mile marker 80 in Islamorada. Justin Socarras of Southwest Ranches was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami after a red 2004 Isuzu Rodeo he was driving collided with a parked car and boat trailer along U.S. 1. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Socarras was traveling north on the highway around 12:45 p.m. the day of the crash and, for unknown reasons, lost control of the sport-utility vehicle.The Isuzu rolled in a northeast direction, taking down some power lines before striking the trailer and a legally parked, unoccupied 2005 Chrysler. The Chrysler and boat trailer were parked in front of the Sands of Islamorada resort. Each sustained minor damage.The FHP says Socarras was ejected from the Isuzu and partially pinned under it. His passenger, 20-yearold Jordan Lane of Pembroke Pines, sustained minor injuries in the accident. The FHP said Socarras died at 10 p.m. on Monday. His was the seventh trafficrelated fatality of the year in Monroe County.Supremes to rule on Stand Your GroundThe Florida Supreme Court will consider whether convicted felons have the right to claim immunity under the states controversial Stand Your Ground selfdefense law even if they are barred from possessing guns in the first place.Justices agreed July 2 to hear the case of Brian Bragdon, who was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle, discharging a firearm from a vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a document in the case. Bragdon argued that he fired the gun while trying to defend himself and sought to get the charges dismissed under Stand Your Ground. But a circuit judge ruled that Bragdon was prevented from seeking immunity because he was a convicted felon in possession of a firearm at the time of the shooting, and the 4th District Court of Appeal also ruled against him. The appeals court based its decision on its own 2012 ruling in the case of Harvey Hill, a felon who shot a man during a confrontation over a woman and then claimed he did so in self defense. The court ruled that he couldnt do so under Stand Your Ground. But between Hill and Bragdon, the 2nd District Court of Appeal found in another case that there was at least one section of the Stand Your Ground law that could apply even to felons. The court was considering the case of Aaron Little, who shot another man in a confrontation. His status as a felon in illegal possession of a firearm did not preclude that claim of immunity, the 2nd DCA ruled. And, as set forth above, Little established by a preponderance of the evidence that his use of force was justified to prevent his imminent death or great bodily harm as provided for in the law.The Stand Your Ground law says people can use deadly force and do not have a duty to retreat if they think it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. The law offers criminal and civil immunity in such cases.Its not clear when the Supreme Court might rule. The order issued last week sets out a schedule for attorneys in the case.By BRANDON LARRABEENew Service of Florida KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday, July 9, 2014 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW WED.9382 THURS.9282 FRI.9382 SAT.9382 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers aand thunderstorms.For the extended forecast visitKeysInfoNet.com/weather.The Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

The November race for Seat 4 on the dais so far is between hotelier Paul Bates and Realtor Janet Wood. Bates has run unsuccessfully for a Village Council seat four times. He is a longtime critic of the village government and has three ongoing lawsuits against Islamorada. All of the litigation revolves around his Coconut Cove Resort. Wood, 58, was raised in Islamorada, and grew up in a house at mile marker 82 behind where the Ace Hardware Store now stands. She is a real estate professional, as well as an interior designer. She volunteers with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Guardian ad Litem program, which advocates for children in the court system. Official qualifying for the ballot is when the village clerk determines if candidates meet all legal requirements to get on the ballot, such as residency and not being convicted felons. In Islamorada, qualifying for Village Council hopefuls runs from noon Aug. 12 to noon Aug. 19. Incumbent council members Mike Forster, Deb Gillis and Ken Philipson have filed but have no challengers so far. But incumbent Councilman David Purdo has two announced challengers, former Council man Bob Johnson and former Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward.

The most recent CHIP, as its called, was released in 2013. Kerr said age-adjusted rates essentially give a more accurate reflection than crude data used in 2013. The five-year sample set provides more data given the Keys small population.The method involves using the standard population of the U.S. from 2000 while collecting data in each area, as opposed to actual data from each micro-community.The CHIP compiles data from several categories, primarily some of the countrys largest killers. It compares death, all cancers, lung cancer specifically, chronic liver disease, unintentional injury, heart disease and teen pregnancy rates Keyswide. According to Kerrs findings, west and central Marathon ranked second and third, respectively, in all death rates per 1,000 residents at 68.61 and 48.97. They finished behind only the so-called Casa Marina District in Key West, a likely outlier at 99.32 due to its minimal population.West and central Marathon also finished first (24.56) and second (23.87) in the all cancer death rate per 1,000 residents, well ahead of any area but Casa Marina. The next closest was the Lake Surprise area in North Key Largo at 12.98 per 1,000.West and central Marathon also ranked third (16.98) and fourth (15.32) in heart disease per 1,000 residents. New Town West finished second at 17.73, while Casa Marina was first at 26.33.In response to Kerrs findings, the Health Depart ment is actively attempting to survey 351 the optimal sample set, she says west and central Marathon residents about their community. The survey asks residents to address their top three community concerns before asking several questions related to cancer, heart and liver disease, and unintentional injury. Kerr said the Health Department would use the findings to have a community meeting and address the results and have them [help] determine the best way to approach improvements. Anyone living in the west or central areas of Marathon can take the Health Department survey at www .tinyurl.com/keyssurvey1 through July. For more information, call 393-1276. Agency wants residents inputFrom Health, 1A why cant you have a person of the opposite sex that also brings in a same-sex partner into the marriage? Staver said throwing out the law could lead to polygamy. Huntsman and Jones cocounsel, Elena Vigil-Farinas, told Garcia that Stavers legal argument which included a graphic written description of heterosexual and homosexual sex acts embarrassed her.Im embarrassed to have a member of the Bar write something like this as an excuse to support the bigotry of the voters of Florida, Vigil-Farinas said. Because in his mind, this court should allow mob rule. If the majority the one that has the most money, the one that has the most position dont like a certain segment of society like our friends over here, they get to rule. And you dont get to even evaluate whether its even constitutional.Vigil-Farinas, who is arguing the case with law partner Bernadette Restivo, railed against Stavers argument that allowing gays and lesbians to wed would harm traditional marriage. Fifty seven percent of first marriages in this country fall apart, she said. Sixty four percent of second marriages and 72 percent of third marriages. And theyre asking for the right to be as miserable as the rest of us. David Goodhue, editor of The Reporter, contributed to this report.They have right to be miserableFrom Marriage, 1A Falcon likely to get Customs jobSteps toward two new major construction projects in Marathon go before the Monroe County Commis sion at its July 16 meeting in Key West. A contract for construction of a new U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility at Florida Keys Marathon Airport has been recommended for Pedro Falcon Electrical Contractors of Big Pine Key. Falcon Electrical submitted a bid of $1,091,407 for the facility, declared the low bid after factoring in local preference. Bids from other firms ranged as high as $1.3 million.Costs for the project, which would make the airport an official federal port of entry into the U.S. from other countries, essentially will be split between the countys airport-specific budget and the Florida Department of Transportation.A new public library for Marathon moves closer to reality if commissioners sign off on a $6,500 contract for conceptual site plans. Property adjacent to Stanley Switlik Elementary School, on the bayside of U.S. 1 around 33rd Street, is the staffs and communitys first choice, says a staff background report. This contract will provide a conceptual site plan to secure approval to reach an agreement with the Monroe County School Board. Commissioners last summer included a new Marathon library, estimated to cost $3 million, to its capital improvement budget for the next five years. The current library has numerous construction problems that cannot be easily fixed. Building a new library near Switlik School would prevent students from having to cross U.S. 1, supporters note. In other action at the July 16 meeting at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue:Commissioners will hold two closed sessions, beginning at 1:30 p.m., to discuss collective bargaining contracts being negotiated with Teamsters Local 769, representing mechanics and other county staff; and the International Association of Firefighters Local 3909.Staff will present updated information on the Monroe County tax roll and how it affects development of the 2014-15 county budget.

De La Rosa faces a $27,000 bond and Garcia Blanco has a $10,000 bond. They reportedly live in Key West but without a permanent address.They were arrested around 6:30 p.m. Saturday after a witness reported that two men aboard a gray skiff appeared to be spearing lobster at Waltz Key Basin, about three miles north of Big Coppitt Key.When FWC officers approached the 13-foot skiff powered by a 25-horsepower outboard, Garcia Blanco tried to motor away from the patrol boats, officers reported. De La Rosa started grabbing handfuls of wrung lobster tails and throwing them overboard, FWC Investigator John Brown said in his report.The skiff was quickly overtaken and the two men apprehended and placed in handcuffs.FWC officers counted 85 lobster tails on the boat and three whole lobster. All apparently had been speared and taken out of season. About three dozen lobster also were below the legal size limit. Officers also found 14 undersized snapper.Garcia Blanco was charged with fleeing from officers, and De La Rosa was charged with resisting arrest by discarding evidence. Neither man had a saltwater fishing license, and the skiff was unregistered.They attempted to flee but were easily capturedLOWER KEYSKeynoter StaffDriver dies weeks after crashBroward man flipped Isuzu on June 23ISLAMORADAKeynoter StaffIN THE COURTSPhoto courtesy ALISON KERRMonroe County Health Department interns Priscilla Bennett (left) and Christina Genet invite west and central Marathon residents (Seven Mile Bridge to 70th Street) to take a survey at Sombrero Beach on July 4.

Incumbent Vice Mayor Chris Bull and Realtor Trish Hintze have added their names to what is quickly becoming a crowded Marathon City Council ballot for this November. Bull and Hintze join already-filed candidates Bill Kelly, Dan Zieg, Eric Myrmel and Jeanette Pelletier in the race for three open seats on the dais. Bull is the only incumbent eligible for re-election; Mayor Dick Ramsay and former Councilwoman Ginger Snead (she vacated her seat in February) would be termed out following three consecutive two-year terms. Hintze, 49, said shes been involved politically from a young age but decided now is the time to seek public office. Shes been a Keys resident for 15 years and has called Marathon home since 2005.The reason I jumped in the race is because I need something to do, Hintze said.For the past 10 years, the Century 21 associate had been involved with the Middle and Lower Keys Association of Realtors. She also was a mentor in the Take Stock in Children scholarship program, and has a son in the U.S. Coast Guard whos about done with active duty and headed to college.Hintze said the logical choice for her was to take the next step in community involvement.My platform is Im here, Im a servant and I believe thats what a council person is supposed to be. They should really listen to the public. Id like to know, where do you think the city needs to pick up the ball and run? Hintze said. Bull, 38, also has a long history of community involvement in Marathon. He said he plans to continue his goal to plan for Marathons future.On the campaign trail two years ago we said, Stop doing knee-jerk reactions and do more long-term planning. Weve begun to do that, but theres a way to go, Bull said.Bull recently introduced a U.S. 1 beautification initiative called Marathon Proud that ties into the citys longstanding goals to beautify its main street U.S. 1. We need a big plan we can work off of. I would like to be in a position to continue that, he said.Bull said his experience as a council member would go a long way toward the board continuing to seek state and federal grant money for city wastewater and stormwater projects. The city secured $17 million for fiscal year 2014-15 as part of a $50 million state bond for Keys projects.City Council voting is at large, meaning that for this election, the top three votegetters are elected to open seats. Qualifying for the Nov. 4 election is from noon Aug. 5 through noon Aug. 12.A panel reviewing offshore areas for possible changes in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary rules expects to finish its recommendations today in Marathon.The Ecosystem Protection Working Group, a committee of the sanctuarys Advisory Council, concludes its twoday meeting at the Marathon Garden Club. The 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. session is open to the public. A final report from the working group, which has encountered opposition from both recreational and commercial fishing interests concerned about losing access to reef areas, will be forwarded to the full Advisory Council for consideration at an Aug. 19 meeting in Key Largo. Recommendations that emerge from the full Advisory Council then undergo assessment and review by sanctuary staff, with input from other state and federal agencies. An environmental impact statement and draft changes to the sanctuarys management plan then will return to public comment and hearings through 2015. No changes to rules or marine protected areas are expected to be in place until 2016.The Keys sanctuarys management plan, which defines rules and protected waters, has not changed significantly since 1997, with the exception of adding no-take areas in the Dry Tortugas.Advisory panel finishes work todayNATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARYKeynoter Staffcars. Its good for tourism, its a new revenue stream for the Key West Bight, so its something we figured was worth looking into and presenting to the Key West Bight board to see if theres any interest in doing something like this. The Key West Express is the only ferry service running day trips round trip from Key West to Fort Myers Beach and Marco Island. Bradshaw says that service brings around 85,000 visitors to the island annually. Jodi Weinhofer, president of the Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and Key West, says she doesnt know enough about the proposal to determine if Key West Great Escapes plan is a good thing for the city but will be at tonights meeting to find out more. There are transient spaces at the marina, but Im not sure they can accommodate 80 or more passengers, she said. I dont know that the marina is set up for that kind of traffic. Weinhofers not sure whether the service, if approved, would take money from hotels, but is concerned that ferry passengers would not pay a bed tax (a per-night tax on lodgings). Were never happy about people playing by different rules, she said. Under the proposal, a fiveto 10-year agreement would be set up with Key West Great Escape paying a dockage rate of $30 per foot per month with annual increases dependent on the Consumer Price Index. Passengers would pay a $5 embarkation and disembarkation fee with each trip, and the company would pay a 10-cent-per-gallon fuel surcharge to the city in exchange for using the ferry terminals fueling system. Key West Escape would also pay for utilities including electric, water, solid waste and sewage pump-out. Jeff McDonald, president of Key West Great Escape, declined to comment on the proposal before it was taken up for discussion at tonights meeting. While smaller, boutique cruises are popular in the United Kingdom and Mediterranean destinations, it appears they have yet to catch on in the U.S. The only comparable service in Florida is a much larger cruise ship that operates from West Palm Beach to the Bahamas. Interior cabins cost around $120 to $150, depending on the season, with a deluxe suite nearing the $400 mark. Similar cruise lines run from Washington to British Columbia and Alaska.

The South Florida Management Committee, comprising members of fishery management councils from the both Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic panels, will meet in open sessions at the Hilton Key Largo at mile marker 97. State fishery biologists and managers are working with the committee to determine if special rules can be adopted to cover fish populations in South Florida.The committee was formed in response to complaints that regulations adopted for waters as far as Texas or North Carolina may not be appropriate for South Floridas subtropical ecosystem.The Florida Keys, where waters under the jurisdiction of the state and two federal fishery councils converge, have been a focal point. Rules for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, plus national and state parks, also can affect fishing.Committee members are scheduled to look at fish species that could be candidates for localized South Florida seasons or catch limits.At 9 a.m. July 24, the Ad Hoc Goliath Grouper Joint Steering Committee will hear an update on stock populations of Goliath grouper, formerly known as jewfish. Widespread but anecdotal reports of increasing Goliath grouper numbers off Southwest Florida and the Keys have anglers petitioning managers to relax a total harvest ban for the species. Biologists and conservationists have urged caution, saying a regional increase may not signal a recovery for the slow-growing grouper.A full agenda for the meetings at www.gulfcouncil.org .KEYS FISHERIESKeynoter Staff

It appeared this disabled man was panicking, as he struggled to seek some sort of shelter that might protect him from a torrential downpour. I watched Mr. Donnelly and Mr. Wheaton lift this large paralyzed man out of his wheelchair and place him into a vehicle to be transported home. Mr. Wheaton folded up his chair and placed it in the back of an SUV. Two other vehicles pulled alongside to see if they could lend any assistance. I had to pull my car off the road because of the blinding force of the rain. I graduated from Coral Shores High School where Mr. Donnelly was a teacher and Mr. Wheaton a student. I admire and respect them both. The lessons taught by Mr. Donnelly have positively impacted many young men and women. A broad range of students, not in his class, sought him out seeking answers and solutions. Mr. Donnelly never turned anyone away. He was trusted and revered. Mr. Wheaton was a leader and star student/athlete while attending school. The integrity and leadership that he developed has served our community well. His customer centered business and advocacy positions are supported and well known. Many have been blessed through his generosity and philanthropic spirit. It did my soul well to see the gallant and immediate response tendered by Donnelly and Wheaton as they went into action, sparing this defenseless man further harm. Carolyn Thomas Key LargoFiner points in focusJessica Machetta states in a July 5 story that Key West Senior Development LLC (Senior Development) is a subsidiary of American House Senior Living. Your attention is directed to Page 1 of Senior Developments response to the Key West Housing Authoritys request for proposals to build an assisted-living facility, where senior development identifies itself solely as an affiliate of American House. The term affiliate is not defined in the response.Jim Nichols is identified in the article as a principal (not defined) of Senior Development but in the response, he is referred to only as the day-to-day project manager. It is not clear that the two terms are synonymous.The article further identifies the Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition worked in partnership with private developers to build senior housing on the Truman Waterfront. At no time was the coalition in any legal partnership with private vendors. The coalition issued a request for proposals and vetted the companies that responded. Subsequent negotiations between the city and the for-profit developers failed to result in a contract or lease acceptable to city staff and the City Commission.Sheldon Davidson Key WestTrue friends of libraryTo Barbara Wright, the teachers at Stanley Switlik Elementary School and to everyone who contributed to my beautiful retirement luncheon: I am truly overwhelmed and so appreciative of their kindness and sad that I couldnt attend but want to thank them all so much. Gloria Goodman Marathon Editors note: The letter writer retired from the Monroe County Public Library at the end of June after a 32-year career.The land on which proposed Eco-Lodge sits has potential while wiping away the blightIslamorada property owner Bert Vorstman has a plan that could benefit the Islamorada tax base and the environment. But his idea is on indefinite hold because of unnecessary push-back he received last year from Islamorada Planning Department staff and the Village Council. Vorstman owns an 8-acre oceanfront lot at mile marker 83 on the Old Highway. His vision is to turn the overgrown property, now a makeshift homeless camp, into a state-of-the-art, environmentally themed resort the Islamorada Eco-lodge. As its currently zoned, Vorstman could build a big house there. But without a text amendment to the building code, he cant build the 70-unit Eco-Lodge. Vorstman said he wants something thats going to benefit me, the community and the environment rather than simply constructing a grand home for him and his family. The truth is, a project of this magnitude could employ well over 100 people and attract that highly desirable visitor base that Islamorada covets and caters to people willing to fork over between $500 and $600 per night. The economic benefits would likely trickle down to restaurants, charter boats, attractions and retail businesses. Plus, theres tax revenue thats associated with the project. The project could establish Islamorada as a premiere eco-tourism destination. That distinction carries a ton of weight in the travel industry. The issue was before the Village Council last summer and is up for discussion again at the July 10 council meeting. Vorstman and his development partner, EDSA of Fort Lauderdale, were unable to convince the council to approve a text amendment last year. This would have been the first step in a series of local and state regulatory hurdles through which Vorstman and EDSA would have to wade before ground could be broken. The stumbling block is the perceived threat to native plant life if the resort is green-lighted. Vorstman and EDSA contend they would restore hardwood hammock and wetlands, replant native species and build the hotel units in clusters throughout the property, which also contains mangroves and a sandy beach. The Village Council should reconsider its opposition. Sure, theres something to be said about the village remaining as quaint and pristine as possible. After all, thats the inherent allure that attracts visitors here today. But were talking about an eco-friendly project here, not big-box retailers or a car dealership. We stand to potentially put a piece of unused, overgrown property to better use than its serving now while funneling more dollars into Islamoradas coffers. Lets not let the right kind of progress be cast aside. Be selective if you like Islamorada, but dont ignore a great opportunity that offers strong financial, tourism and ecological benefits to the community.

Pleasure boats seemingly go on forever off private property at Lower Matecumbe Key on July 4.Where do rights end?The problem of a party beach in a quiet residential area really hits home when it is your own home that is in that quiet residential area. July 4 weekend, for example, there were more than 100 boats and at least 500 people on this half mile of beach, boats as far as the eye could see. The music was not quite as loud as on previous weekends, probably due to the Sheriffs Office boat that cruised up and down the beach once in a while. Despite private property signs, two guys and their dog from one of the boats sat on my dock until I informed them that they were trespassing on private property, although they already knew that. The weekend before, a large commercial boat drifted off anchor and was pushed by storm winds up on the sandbar off my house. It almost took out my dock and then plowed a trench more than over 40 feet long, 2 feet deep in some areas in the grass flat as it pulled and pushed itself off ground and out of the shallow waters. The grass flats just off the half-mile long sandbar are carved with prop scars and the sandbar is enlarging as a result of the damage to the grass beds. This party beach is very stressful to residents and even property values may be affected. The joint jurisdiction over this area by the state of Florida, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the village of Islamorada makes it difficult to find a solution that is acceptable. There is also some public opposition to any containment of the situation. There is a kernel of anarchy in a free society. It comes with freedom that has disdain for the rights and property of others, including public property. Without reasonable control and the force of law, the inalienable rights of all are lost.The freedoms we revere, protect, die for and celebrate on July 4 includes the right to protect ones own property, and to request that the government that collects our taxes care, serve and respond to threats against public and private property. We understand that this is sometimes complex and difficult, and that the village of Islamorada is working on it, but the property owners on Lower Matecumbe Key are growing very weary of the party beach situation that invades our privacy and impacts our environment with increasing frequency.Martin Moe Islamorada This commercial lobster boat grounded behind a house on Lower Matecumbe Key.School wants to expand in Upper KeysThe operator of a private Key Largo Montessori school wants to open an Islamorada location but is facing stiff opposition from vocal residential neighbors who fear the proposed institution would increase traffic and noise levels in the area.Bridget Dangel, founder and operator of the Montessori Academy of the Upper Keys, wants to open a sister location at mile marker 86 on the Old Highway. Her school at mile marker 103 in Key Largo opened in 2009 and has become so successful that there is a waiting list to attend.Most of her students make the trip from Islamorada, and several parents have asked her to open a school in the village. Theres a real need in Islamorada for early childhood education, Dangel said. The school teaches children between ages of 2 and 6. Her proposed Islamorada school would enroll children from 2 months to 5 years old.The location of the proposed school is several lots north of Treasure Village Montessori School, which is a public elementary school that teaches kindergarten-aged children through the eighth grade.Dangels Key Largo school is private, as would be the Islamorada location. Annual tuition is around $8,000 (public charter Montessoris such as the Treasure Village Montessori are free). Enrollment at the proposed Islamorada school would be capped at about 40 children. But before she can open the new location, the Islamorada Village Council must approve a zoning change on the property that would allow it to be used for commercial purposes. The Local Planning Agency, an advisory panel to the fivemember Village Council, voted 3-1 on June 9 not to recommend the council approve the zoning change. The potential change worries neighbors, like Buddy Pinder, who lives next door on East Ridge Road. He and other neighbors say theyre concerned that if the property, now zoned for residential development, is changed to allow commercial use, businesses like convenience stores or gas stations could pop up in the schools place. The Village Council is expected to discuss the zoning change at its Thursday meeting at Village Hall at Founders Park. Mayor Ted Blackburn said he supports building a new school in the village, but he thinks it should be built on an existing commercial lot.I certainly would encourage [Dangel] to come to Islamorada and find an appropriate commercial location, Blackburn said this week.Don Horton, a planning consultant hired by Dangel, pointed out that the property used to house a business, Cotton Construction, and it was zoned to allow businesses there until the village published its comprehensive plan in 2001.Its not like the people who lived there for so long didnt have that commercial property right in front of them, Horton said. As matter of fact, Cotton Construction owned that property. And old man Cotton did store his drilling rig there. He did store all of his telephone poles there. And he did operate his construction business, as well as his house, out of hat property.Dangel and Horton suggested changing the village comprehensive plan to mandate the property always be used for schools regardless of who owns the land. Ed Davidson, a Monroe County School Board member, lives nearby on Coral Road and opposes the project for several reasons, including because, he said, it contains native hammock and wildlife habitat. He argued at the June 9 meeting that limiting the propertys use for education would not hold up against legal scrutiny. Its naive to think that you or the Village Council have any legal way to bind a property owner to a single use, Davidson said. Although about 40 residents wrote letters to the village to oppose the project, Islamoradas Planning Department staff recommended the zoning change, and several people spoke in favor of the school at the June 9 meeting, including state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo). She has a young son who goes to Dangels Key Largo school, and said building more quality schools in the area is essential to lure young professionals to the Keys. Im happy to have the resource in Key Largo, Raschein said. Im happy someone is responsible for his education other than me. Likewise, attorney Jessica Reillys two boys were taught at the Montessori Academy of the Upper Keys, and both could read before they turned 4 years old.Its an amazing school. Its an asset to the community, Reilly said. So much so that many of my friends who live in Islamorada drive their children from below mile marker 80 all the way up to 103 so they could attend Bridgets school.Montessori would open in the villageBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA

Leslie Leopold, 305.942.0215 Cheri Tindall, 305.664.7661 Business4 in 10 homes cell phone onlyMore American households are ditching their old telephones: Four out of 10 only use cell phones, a government survey shows. Thats twice the rate from just five years ago, although the pace of dumping landlines seems to have slowed down in recent years.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta has been tracking phone use for a decade, and the number of households only using cell phones had been rising by about 5 percentage points each year. Lately, the increases have been smaller and last year it only went up 3 percentage points to 41 percent of U.S. homes.Why the slight leveling off? Experts could only speculate. The lead researcher on the CDC report, Stephen Blumberg, said it could be people are holding onto their landlines because it is part of their Internet and cable TV package. Or it could mean that were hitting a ceiling for those people willing to completely abandon landlines, said John Palmer, a researcher at the Autonomous University in Barcelona, Spain, who was not involved in the report.Some non-experts were surprised to hear that the change has slowed down a bit.We switched to only cell phones three years ago. The only time we would get calls on the landline was from telemarketers, said Justin Hodowanic, an 18-year-old college freshman from Atlanta.Dan Warhola, 34, said he had a landline at his Columbus, Ohio, home but only because his security system was tied into it years ago when he bought his house. I couldnt even tell you what my [landline] phone number is, said Warhola, standing at baggage claim at Atlantas Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.The CDC survey released Tuesday is based on in-person interviews in more than 21,000 homes during the last half of 2013. The researchers found:Not all homes have phones: About 3 percent have no landline or cell phone.About 9 percent have only landlines, and about 48 percent have both. Five years ago, 17 percent had only landlines, and about 60 percent had landlines and cell phones.Younger people rely more on cell phones: Nearly two-thirds of people in their late 20s live in households with only cell phones. Only 14 percent of people 65 and older use only cell phones.Men are a bit more likely to shun landlines than women.Poor adults are much more likely than higherincome people to have only cell phones.The Midwest is the most wireless region: About 44 percent live in cell phone-only homes. The South and West were nearly as high. In the Northeast, 25 percent live in cell phone-only households.More and more, landlines are thing of pastBY MIKE STOBBEAssociated PressCONSUMERS Channel 10 sale completeWPLG-Channel 10 in Miami officially has a new owner. Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffetts investment conglomerate, and Graham Holdings Co. reported July 1 that they have completed the sale of the television station and other assets of Graham Holdings to Berkshire Hathaway. The companies announced the deal on March 12. In a deal valued at about $1.1 billion, Berkshire has acquired a wholly owned subsidiary of Graham Holdings, including WPLG, 2,107 Class A Berkshire shares and 1,278 Class B Berkshire shares owned by Graham Holdings and $327.7 million in cash, in exchange for about 1.62 million shares of Graham Holdings Class B common stock owned by Berkshire Hathaway.WPLG, with studios in Pembroke Park, had been part of Graham Holdings, formerly called the Washington Post Group, for more than four decades and was named for the iconic Graham family. The Washington Post Co. purchased the station in 1969 and changed the call letters to WPLG in memory of publisher Philip L.

Thats a sizeable increase from 39 percent in February and 34 percent last fall.The Pepperdine Private Capital Access Index for small businesses rose to 27.7 from 27.1 in February. It measures companies demand for and ease in getting financing, including loans. Banks are taking more steps to persuade small businesses to borrow, said Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. CEO Jeff Stibel. Interest rates for small businesses, which had been about 15 percent, are falling, he said. Banks are also willing to lend for longer terms than they did a few years ago. Stibels company compiles credit reports on small businesses.Banks are willing to lend because small businesses are generally healthier than they were during the recession and its aftermath, Stibel said. Their cash flow is stronger and theyre keeping their expenses down, which makes them more appealing to risk-averse banks that want to lend. Were entering a new normal, he said. Small-business owners who have been conservative with their finances since the recession began 6.5 years ago are still cautious, the survey shows. An index measuring their demand for outside financing of all types fell 1.3 points to 32.1. Companies hiring plans are also conservative. Fortyseven percent of small businesses said they had no plans to hire in the next six months, up 2 percentage points from February. The number of businesses planning to hire up to two employees rose to 35 percent from 33 percent, but the number of companies planning to hire three to 10 workers fell slightly. Stibel said he expects hiring to increase. He noted that many owners are getting lines of credit, but arent rushing to use them. They want to be sure they have the money on hand when theyre ready to expand or hire, he said. Owners revenue expectations for their companies were little changed from February. Many owners have said in separate surveys they wont hire until they have enough new business to justify expanding their payrolls. The survey included responses from 1,251 companies of all sizes.Theyre getting improved terms, lower interestAssociated PressCOMMERCIAL LENDING BUSINESS BRIEFSWilson joins bank as loan originatorJoy Wilson has joined First State Bank of the Florida Keys as a residential mortgage loan originator.Wilson has more than 30 years of banking experience in the Keys, including as a vice president, private banking officer, residential loan officer and mortgage loan officer.

Story, 2B Do the mango tangoGrowing, blooming and fruiting in the heat of summer, enduring the cold of winter and the fury of hurricanes, mangoes have made this land their home the warm, southern extreme of South Florida.But the mangos adopted home in South Florida is far from ideal, providing a spartan soil and rough conditions. We can, however, make South Florida, including the Keys, a place for growing mangoes in maximum plenitude.Every back yard in South Florida presents an opportunity to grow mangoes. There is always a place for one or two trees. Today we have small, manageable landscape trees that yield an ample harvest of beautiful and delicious fruit and disease-tolerant cultivars that provide unprecedented opportunities for organic production. Trees that set fruit early in the season will avoid the summer rains, and those with superior genetics through selective cultivation will ward off disease. Some early-fruiting varieties to look for include rosigold, angie and manilita. These were your best bet for an early season, and should be have been ready by April. Fairchild, mallika and coghall fruit during summer. Neelum will fruit a bit later, by the end of September. There are simple steps you must take to make the home landscape friendly to mango trees: Get your tree in the ground in June or July there is still time during summer rainy season. No special soil is needed. Choose a small but healthy tree. A tree in a two-gallon container is a good size.One benefit of starting with a small tree is that it will establish itself quicker and grow better roots in our rocky soils, thus resisting hurricanes.Fruit trees need good sunlight exposure. Select an area where the tree gets sufficient sunlight to ensure good fruit production. A well-maintained mango tree will develop a healthy root system. If the tree is kept to a proper size, its roots will not damage nearby pavement or building foundations. On the other hand, an unhealthy tree with a weak root system will be toppled easily by hurricane winds.Surprisingly, mango trees like moderately dry conditions. They require irrigation just until the tree becomes established, from one to three months. Do not irrigate after its established. Excess irrigation will increase the trees vulnerability to disease and decrease the quality of its fruit. Overwatering can kill a mango tree. When the trees are grown in harmony with their environment, their care is built onNows the time to cultivate the sweet fruitBy NORIS LEDESMASOUTH FLORIDA HORTICULTURE Miami Herald photo by DANIEL BOCKMangoes are among the easiest things to grow. Even for people who dont have green thumbs, a healthy harvest each year is pretty much guaranteed.Guided nature walks in full swingStaff at the National Key Deer Refuge in the Lower Keys continues its summer series of guided evening nature walks tonight.The free kid-friendly walks are at various locations around the refuge.

But if youre stuck in an office all day or looking to beat the heat, head out at night. And when I say at night, I mean in the dark. An 8 p.m. departure is ideal. Youll still have sufficient daylight to anchor up and get your chum slick going.Speaking of chum, the more, the merrier, as the warmer waters disperse the chum very quickly. I take a full case with me for a fourhour trip. You can always refreeze what you dont use and save it for your next outing.The preferred depths on the reef are 40 to 60 feet, but the patches are also offering up good numbers of yellowtails and mangroves. The patch yellowtails take the same cut baits used on the reef, while the mangroves prefer small, live pinfish or pilchards. The Atlantic wrecks are providing excellent action on mutton snappers, with fish in the 10to 20-pound range the norm. Live baits are the ticket ballyhoo, pilchards and pinfish. On the deeper wrecks, there are amberjack and jack crevalle to give you a workout. And dolphin and tuna fishing offshore continues to produce lots and lots of fish. Were still seeing the majority of dolphin in the smallish range, so please be vigilant about measuring. Dolphin must measure 20 inches to the fork of the tail to be legal. Not 20 inches total length a distinction many anglers apparently are unaware of, based on some of the fish Ive seen on cleaning tables around town. Shark fishing in Florida Bay is extraordinary. Part aquarium encounter and part big-game sportfishing, catch-and-release fishing for sharks on light spin tackle provides top-quality entertainment for anglers of all ages and abilities and is especially family-friendly. During our shark trips in the bay, we are seeing copious numbers of spiny lobster, portending another good season of bug-hunting. The two-day recreational lobster season is July 30 and 31 this year, so you have just three weeks to get your tickle sticks ready.The weeks bestThe SeaSquared crew spent much of the week on the reef and wrecks, taking advantage of the outstanding snapper bite. Our anglers loaded up on good-size yellowtails, mangroves and muttons. Shallow-water shark fishing in the bay provides non-stop action on lemon sharks ranging from five to seven feet. Doubledigit landings are the norm, with all fish released unharmed. And Capt. Jeff Knapp is still finding some hungry tarpon at the Seven Mile Bridge. When summer snapper season kicks into high gear, we can always count on reports from Capt. Kevin and Barbie Wilson, of Knee Deep Charters out of Geiger Key Marina. John and Allie Thyer, along with Lori and Gary Gill, all from Bunker Hill, Ill., had an awesome two days of fishing aboard Knee Deep. They got their limit of yellowtail and mangrove snapper, and John landed two grouper weighing 17 and 28 pounds. Cheryl, Chris, Tim and Katy, from Riverview, Fla., also caught their limit of mostly large yellowtails, with a 12-pound black grouper as a bonus. After a fresh fish lunch at Geiger Key Marina, Barbie took some of the group on a kayak adventure, where they found a Cuban refugee raft in the mangroves.Capt.

It is only in this manner that mangoes can achieve greatness of character.Mulch protectsWhen planting, there is no need to add any fertilizer. A month after planting, fertilize lightly with a low-analysis fertilizer (containing low levels of nutrients). We recommend that no nitrogen fertilizers be applied.A light layer of mulch will protect the root system and as it decomposes, will provide enough nitrogen. After that, fertilize only when your tree is active, from April to September. Do not fertilize at all during the winter. Use a 00-50 formulation fertilizer, sprinkled lightly below the drip-line of the canopy three times per year. Foliar micronutrients that include magnesium, zinc, and manganese will help balance out the nutritional needs of your tree, especially during fruit production.Pruning should be your main horticultural practice, shaping your tree from a young age. Proper early pruning will provide balance for the rest of your trees life. The first pruning should be done to remove the terminal bud. Tipping begins in the first year and continues for the life of the tree. Trees should be tipped every 20 inches.When pruning mango trees, you are trying to maintain height while improving flowering and fruiting. A well-managed mango tree is generally below 15 feet tall, has a complex structure of branches and has all portions of the tree open to sunlight. It is crucial to maintain the height of your mango tree to allow for ease of fruit harvest and overall management of the tree.Prune trees for size control after harvest each year. Remember to prune by hand. The branches, twigs and leaves can be mulched in place or ground up or composted for use in other locations.When you see insects, identify them before taking any action. Remember, insects are presumed innocent until proven guilty of damage. Most are not damaging. Pesticides should be the final option.Allow some nearby weeds to grow to provide a nectar source for bees, flies and wasps, particularly during the spring flowering season. You can keep weeds under control through mulching and the shade provided by the trees themselves.South Florida has become the mangos home, and it is our privilege and responsibility to care for the tree and fruit. Enjoy the advantage of living in South Florida: The great flavors, aromas and horticultural innovations. The mango is a fruit of great distinction, cultivated with specific objectives to improve our quality of life.Noris Ledesma is curator of tropical fruit at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables.

Fat camps for pets?Its not just a people problem: Growing rates of obesity in pets have led to the emergence of fat farms offering pawlates, doga and Barko Polo, doggie versions of Pilates, yoga and Marco Polo to help slim down mans best friend. In the U.S., 53 percent of dogs are overweight or obese, up from 45 percent four years ago. In cats, the figure is almost 58 percent, said Dr. Ernie Ward, a veterinarian and founder of the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention in Calabash, N.C. Overweight pets can suffer diabetes, joint problems, heart disease and decreased life expectancy, just like obese people, he said. Most luxury pet hotels and spas nationwide will customize a fitness program for a pudgy dog or cat, but only a few facilities have fat camps for large groups. For golden retriever Ceili, it was easy to fatten up when living with a boy who pushed tasty morsels over the edge of his high chair. The extra weight led Eileen Bowers of New Jersey, to sign up the more than 100pound pooch for a five-day fitness camp last month at the Morris Animal Inn. Besides the pawlates, the camp was filled with swimming, nature hikes, treadmill trots, facials, massages and healthy treats like organic granola, string beans and carrots. It was designed to give Ceili and 40 other dogs a head start on a healthier life, said Debora Montgomery, the New Jersey facilitys spokeswoman. Wonder how you get a dog to do a downward dog? You wouldnt even recognize that yoga pose in the canine version. Doga and pawlates are a lot alike both are about stretching while building strength, balance and flexibility. In doga, stretches are close to the ground, while pawlates uses higher balance equipment like large exercise balls, Montgomery said. And the Barko Polo pool game varies from its human inspiration: A staffer will shout barko and whichever dog-paddling pooch yelps first gets a toy. In all activities, the dogs work for their meals. We praise and make the sessions fun and interactive, Montgomery said. After the cardio come the doggie facials: a cleansing massage that wipes away organic food crumbs and exerciseinduced slobber. Bowers started sending her dog to the Morris facility months ago when Ceili hit 126 pounds. Usually, female golden retrievers weigh between 55 and 70 pounds, Montgomery said. Ceili got down to 118 pounds but went to camp to lose more. We want her to be around for a long time, Bowers said, adding that her 2-year-old son is more interested in running than throwing food these days. Those extra treats are a culprit in canine obesity rates, besides a lack of exercise, Ward said. Over 80 percent of owners give dogs two or more snacks a day. He compared the rising problem to the same trend in kids. Children and cats and dogs dont feed themselves, Ward said. We treat ourpetslike children. The facilities help pet owners too busy for long walks or unable to afford a swimming pool or treadmill. Morris Animal Inn charges $59 a day or $249 for five days with all the amenities.Downward dog now has pretty literal meaningBy SUE MANNINGAssociated PressOUR PETS Associated Press photo by MEL EVANSKelli Quinones walks golden retriever Ceili on a treadmill for dogs at the Morris Animal Inn Thursday in Morristown, N.J.

Study: Reefs need more lifeColorful parrotfish and spindly sea urchins are the key to saving the Caribbeans coral reefs, which may disappear in two decades if no action is taken, a report by several international organizations said July 2.The report, which analyzed the work of 90 experts over three years, said Caribbean reefs have declined by more than 50 percent since the 1970s. It said that while many experts have blamed climate change for the problem, a drop in the populations of parrotfish and sea urchins is largely responsible.Parrotfish and sea urchins feed off seaweed, and a drop in their numbers has led to an increase in seaweed, which smothers coral reefs, Jeremy Jackson, lead author of the report, said. The situation is truly horrific in the sense that you have all these places that are desperately overfished, Jackson said in a phone interview from Australia. He said the main culprits in reef degradation are overfishing, coastal degradation and diseases introduced to the region. Climate change for me so far is 10 percent of the story, said Jackson, a senior adviser with the Swiss-based International Union for Conservation of Nature, which issued the report with the United Nations Environment Program and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network. Long-spined sea urchins used to be plentiful in Florida Keys waters but basically were found to have started dying off in mid-1983. Mark Eakin, coral reef watch coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said the report understates the impact of ocean warming. Its something that I would say they overlook in their studies, said Eakin, who contributed to the report but was not directly involved in it. We really need to deal with climate change.He said there have been at least six substantial bleaching events in the last 30 years, with warm ocean waters forcing the reef organisms to eject the colorful algae that live in their tissues.The last bleaching event occurred in 2010, but a 2005 episode was the most severe, with up to 90 percent of corals in parts of the eastern Caribbean affected and more than half of them dying. Eakin agreed with the reports other findings. For a lot of the Caribbean, the reefs are already devastated, he said. Its not a surprising result. The Caribbean has nearly 8,000 square miles of coral reefs, most of which are in very poor health. Some island nations have taken steps to control overfishing, but experts say more work is needed.Long-spined urchins used to be in KeysBy DANICA COTOAssociated PressOUR OCEAN LIVING BRIEFSHospital welcomes teenage volunteersLower Keys Medical Center on Stock Island is looking for mature teens ages 14 to 17 years to volunteer this summer.
