Mayor Dick Ramsay has been working with Planning Director George Garrett on possible revisions to the citys land development regulations to update what Garrett called in his July 8 monthly report an aging housing stock. Garrett included several suggestions in that report, chief among them to place a broader responsibility on all segments of resort and other commercial development for providing workforce housing.The requirement [to provide some employee housing] is only for hotels. Im pushing for us to include commercial, especially commercial like a Home Depot, where they have multiple employees, not necessarily one or two, Ramsay said.Garrett is out of town and was unavailable for comment, but following are his additional recommendations to the council: Revising the LDRs to more clearly define the numerical requirement for providing a certain number of workforce housing units for a given level of development.Revising the LDRs to modify the current fees associated with the transfer of market-rate development rights from one location to another.Establishing LDR provisions whereby multiple developers share workforce housing responsibilities on single and common project sites. Ramsay said he no longer agrees with the citys current policy allowing developers to pay the city $20,000 per unit of required affordable housing in order to get out of building it.I made a statement that you cant buy a decent tent for $20,000, and I stick by that, he said.Soon-to-be-done projects mean many more workers are neededMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KICKS FOR KIDSTurtles get more protectionVirtually all Atlantic Ocean waters off the Florida Keys become a designated critical habitat for loggerhead sea turtles beginning Aug. 11. This is great news for our loggerheads, said Bette Zirkelbach, manager of the Turtle Hospital in Marathon. They need this protected area. The decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, made in response to a lawsuit filed by marine conservation groups, designates more than 300,000 square miles of ocean in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico as essential breeding and feeding habitat for the protected turtles.Rules unveiled July 9 also designate 685 miles of upland shorelines in six states as recognized nesting areas.In the Keys, the designated nesting sites include 2.6 miles of Atlantic shoreline on Long Key and 2.3 miles on Bahia Honda Key, along with several areas in the Dry Tortugas and Marquesas, plus mainland Monroe County. However, other beaches have nests, for example, Sombrero Beach in Marathon.The designation will maximize conservation efforts by protecting turtles on land and sea, offering hope for recovery, said attorney Jaclyn Lopez of the Center for Biological Diversity.That center, along with Oceana and other conservation groups, filed suit under the Endangered Species Act contending that federal agencies had not moved to safeguard habitat needed by loggerhead turtles.

Imagine a hundred or so hungry pelicans. You all know why they are there. You build it and they will come.Zuiderveen is one of many residents who have said developing the waterfront at 2407 N. Roosevelt Blvd. in Key West would be disastrous to the quality of life for residents who live nearby, as well as for the environment.The plan, put forth by Robert Walker, was slated to be heard by the Key West Planning Board Thursday. But Tuesday, Walker asked for a delay so he could finalize plans, including for parking.Tom Ratcliffe, who lives on Gulfview Drive, writes that he is hopeful the Planning Board will take the concerns into account so that Dr. Walker will be able to get his marina but, at the same time, the peaceful nature of our living environment will not be significantly disturbed.However, planner Owen Trepanier, with Trepanier & Associates in Key West, says he believes those concerns have been addressed. Weve been lucky for the most part in this project, Trepanier said. The majority of the neighbors have been really straightforward andDeveloper ask for delay in considerationBy JESSICA MACHETTAKeynoter ContributorKEY WESTMoon sends tides out of whackThe so-called super moon over the Florida Keys Saturday night looked great but caused extreme tides, both high and low. The high tides are higher and the low tides are lower when the moon is at its closest point to the earth, said meteorologist Alan Futterman from the Key West office of the National Weather Service. The moon always affects ocean tides but more so at full moon. A perigee moon when a full moon occurs at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit increases the apparent size of the moon, and also has a greater effect on tides. Tides Saturday night and early Sunday swamped some low-lying roads in the Keys. Twelve hours later, the reverse effect drained water off low-lying flats.

It would cost the city of Marathon roughly $170,000 to obtain and transport a lens from a historic lighthouse for display at what will be the new City Hall, and to redesign the lobby for display purposes. Thats according to Solaria Design & Consulting Co. President Steve Grasley, who was given the go-ahead by the City Council in June to investigate the true cost of moving the Fresnel lens that used to sit atop the Sombrero Key Lighthouse about six miles offshore. The U.S. Coast Guard owns the lens, which is on display at the Key West Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters Museum.The 156-foot-tall Sombrero lighthouse was built in 1857 and 1858 and first lighted on March 17, 1858, according to the Florida Keys Reef Lights Foundation. It was automated in 1960 and the lens, made in France, was removed in 1983.Vice Mayor Chris Bull has been pushing for the return of the lens to Marathon and have it serve as a centerpiece in the lobby area of the new city hall, which will be built on the site of the current city hall between 98th and 99th streets along U.S. 1.According to Grasley, design requirements ($14,850), construction requirements ($73,000) and transportation, installation and replacement ($82,000) would add up to $169,850 to incorporate the lens into city hall.Solaria is part of Marathons city-hall design team that is headed up by Key West architect William Horn and includes Key Westbased K2M Design. In addition, Grasleys report estimates it would cost the city $3,063 per year to maintain and insure the lens. The bulk of the construction requirements Grasley worked up are $40,000 for shell revisions to the city hall lobby space and $20,000 for security partitioning. The transportation, installation and replacement costs do include providing the Sand Key lens, in storage near Washington, D.C., as a replacement for the Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters Museum to display.City Manager Mike Puto said a discussion about the costs has not been scheduled for the July 22 council meeting.

Obituaries & Memorials Upper Keys: (305) 852-3216 Marathon Key West: (305) 743-5551 Bill Spottswood, vice president of Key West-based developer Spottswood Cos., is in the process of seeing a 125-room Hyatt hotel built at the former Faro Blanco Resort and Marina site in Old Town Marathon. He agreed housing is a major issue.I would probably say between part-time and fulltime, youre probably looking at 100 employees [when the hotel is complete]. Theres just not a lot of inventory in Marathon, Spottswood said. As a community, we really need to figure out how to increase the affordable housing in Marathon. Its been such a great place and worked hard to get these projects going, and now all of a sudden its, Where are we going to get the employees from? he added. Spottswood said 14 workforce housing units hes building at the Hyatt is almost assuredly not enough to alleviate concerns for future employees. Im looking at trying to figure out if I can put some more there [and] Im looking at some other properties to see where we can put some more, he said. Garretts suggestions were preliminary to allow for City Council discussion when it meets Tuesday. His report suggested a workshop to obtain community input.The greatest need for workforce housing is probably felt most by those having employees and doing business within the city, he wrote.Hotel chief also concernedFrom Housing, 1A tional shortcuts through shallow areas sometimes ran aground. Acres of Atlantic Ocean flats near offshore Tavernier Key, about two miles from the main Keys, allowed strollers to look for shells and dogs to frolic in the soft mud. Pelicans and gulls feasted on fish stranded in shallow pools. The Florida Keys Mosquito Control District pays close attention to extreme tides, said Executive Director Michael Doyle. A lot of offshore islands essentially look like a dinner plate, with a shallow area surrounded by a berm, Doyle said. Some of these can be hundreds of acres. In dry periods on the islands, billions of mosquito eggs lie waiting on the ground, he said. After a high tide, they begin hatching within hours. This is a major producer of mosquitoes. The districts offshore crews are allowed to treat most islands with a particular pesticide. A 3.5-foot high tide topped with 1.7 inches of rain on Middle Torch will likely cause areas that dont typically retain water to retain water long enough to hatch a brood of mosquitoes, Lower Keys mosquito inspector Yvonne Wielhouwer said. A perigee moon astronomers hate the super moon moniker are relatively common. However, this summer and fall will see two more, on Aug. 10 and Sept. 19.Expect more perigee moonsFrom Tides, 1AKiller gets 2.5 yearsStock Island resident Charles Miller, 43, has begun a 30-month prison term after pleading guilty to felony manslaughter for beating to death a fellow Keys man last year following an argument over beer money. Miller admitted in court May 16 to knocking Jesus Rodriguez, 45, to the ground on July 7, 2013, and kicking him in the face before running away. He was found hiding nearby shortly after.Rodriguez died a week later at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.Assistant State Attorney Carla Litrenta said Miller received a shorter-than normal-sentence due to the strength or lack thereof of the states case. The State Attorneys Office had issues with witnesses involved and there was the possibility of Millers attorney floating a self-defense argument.We came to an agreement due to the strengths and weaknesses of our case, Litrenta said.Litrenta said Rodriguezs next of kin were notified of the plea agreement and understood the states concerns.According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, Miller told detectives when he was arrested that he gave a woman he did not know $10 to buy beer at the Tom Thumb convenience store on Maloney Avenue. When she returned without the beer, Miller said he asked for his money back and that the woman ran over to Rodriguez, who was on a bike. Rodriguez then reportedly got off the bike and the two men started fighting.According to the state Department of Corrections website, Miller is at the South Florida Reception Center before likely being transferred to another state prison.Violence related to alcohol is not unusual in the Keys.A month before Millers arrest, Kari Dangler, now 52, of Key Largo was charged with aggravated assault for pulling a handgun on one of her roommates when he wouldnt give her vodka. Shes on probation that expires in September 2015.In July 2012, a woman known as the Sea Hag shot to death a neighbor on Conch Key when the neighbor refused to give her beer. Carolyn Dukeshire, now 54, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 30 years.Prosecutor says witnesses had some problemsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS MILLERBoard might toughen tow rulesOne miserable experience with a towing company could cost the Florida Keys a visitor for life, says Monroe County Mayor Sylvia Murphy.It seems there are some towing companies out there that are taking advantage of our tourists, Murphy said Friday.Weve got so many very good towing companies and they outnumber the bad, she said. But the bad ones can keep a visitor from ever returning to the Keys. The County Commission, meeting in regular session today in Key West, will consider whether to impose new rules to strengthen regulations and set prices when vehicles are towed from private property. Islamorada had a problem and they took care of it with an ordinance. Key West acted to deal with what they called predatory towing, Murphy said. We are the last ones to do this. Monroe Countys towing law has not changed since 2007. The current law specifically addresses towing charges only on tows ordered by law enforcement. Many of the towingcharge complaints that reach county offices stem from tows off private property, Murphy said. There should be information posted [on allowable towing fees] and those prices should be within reason, she said.Islamorada Village Council man Mike Forster pushed for that municipalitys new ordinance after numerous complaints about overpriced or questionable tows.Some of the prices being charged were ridiculous, Forster said. Weve only had one complaint [since the ordinance took effect in May] and we got that reduced to half the cost it would have been. The ordinance has been very helpful, Forster said. Its a very positive thing for the village. One new towing company registered to work in Islamorada after the ordinance was enacted. They didnt want to get involved in all that stuff that was going on before. Murphy said the Islamorada law would give the county a good starting point to draft its own rule.A background report from the countys legal staff notes, With the number of special events occurring with more frequency throughout the Keys ... it appears the issue of predatory towing may be an issue that county staff should research to determine if this is, in fact, an issue that our code should more specifically address.Prices among the issues it will considerCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comCost of lighthouse lens: $170KIt would go on display at new city hallBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Photo courtesy ART & HISTORICAL SOCIETYThe city of Marathon has been exploring the idea of incorporating this historic Fresnel lens once used at Sombrero Key Lighthouse into its planned new city hall.

The Marathon City Council is scheduled to open its 2014-15 budget season on Thursday evening with a special meeting to review proposed general fund figures. Staff is scheduled to present an overview of the proposed $12.44 million budget to the council, after which the board will adopt a preliminary property tax rate for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Governments often approve an initial rate higher than they finalize in September. As written, the proposed tax rate is 2.3297, or $2.3297 per $1,000 of assessed property value. Thats 5.43 percent more than the 2.2097 rollback rate, which is the rate necessary to generate the same tax revenue as in the current year. The 2.3297 rate is estimated to generate $4,159,407 in revenue, an increase of $220,136 from the adopted current years $3,939,271.The day-to-day operating budget would be about $9.26 million and be financed through licenses and permits, government revenue sharing, charges for services, fines, forfeitures and other revenues. The city is budgeted to have $3.18 million in cash reserves, up $534,502 from the current years $2.64 million.Were setting the high side and I can get a feeling for what council wants to do. Well continually have more conversations. Last year, the percentage over rollback was 5.32 and this year, right now were at 5.43, so were pretty close, City Manager Mike Puto said. Included in the proposed budget are across-the-board raises for city employees at a minimum of 3 percent. Employees earning less than $39,000 received 3 percent raises in the current year. But those were the first permanent raises of any kind in five budgets. Then-city Manager Roger Hernstadt preferred to dole out discretionary bonuses.Mayor Dick Ramsay and Vice Mayor Chris Bull were on the losing side of a final vote in September to offer raises to every employee. Ramsay has said on several occasions he wants them included in the 2014-15 budget and instructed Puto to do so.I asked staff to take a look and see what were looking at with raises for people and look at what we can do to afford the raises. Weve got a great staff and we want to do our best to keep them here, Puto said.According to city Finance Director Jennifer Johnson, the combined value of suggested raises for general-fund employees those whose salaries are paid with taxpayer dollars would be $99,907. She noted that Marathon Fire Rescue is still in negotiations with the union, so their figures may change as negotiations progress. City of Marathon Marina employees, Utilities Depart ment employees and Public Works Department workers would also receive raises, but all or a portion of their salaries are paid for via special revenue funds not included in the citys operating budget.In addition, annual employee insurance benefit costs are budgeted to increase by as much as 15 percent, or $59,383, from $427,387 to about $486,770 for fiscal year 2014-15. Thursdays budget meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. habitat. Military operations, such as at Naval Air Station Key West, are excluded. Mike Roberts, Monroe County senior administrator of environmental resources, was reviewing the decision this week. Given the countys existing ordinances on [turtle] nesting beaches, I cant imagine this will have any particularly significant effect on most waterfront areas, Roberts said. Most of the sandy beaches needed for nesting by sea turtles already are protected, he said. In other Keys areas designated as critical habitat for protected species like the Lower Keys marsh rabbit and Key deer, he said, The vast majority of properties are on federal lands. So the impacts to private lands have been fairly minimal. The large areas of ocean listed as essential to the loggerhead species survival create the largest designation of critical habitat ever, according to the Center for Biological Diversity.The Southern Florida Constricted Migratory Corridor runs from the northern boundary of Palm Beach County south to off Key West, covering waters out to the 200meter depth contour.Migrating thousands of miles in the course of their lifetimes, loggerheads face persistent threats from fishing gear, pollution and climate change, Oceana marine scientist Amanda Keledjian said. This critical habitat designation is essential for the future survival and recovery of sea turtles in the U.S.The designation could affect any offshore drilling in the area. Fishing activities were cited as a possible impact on turtles no specifics were outlined.

Most neighbors have had real concrete concerns when we sat down and talked to them about it, and weve been able to do it pretty successfully. Walker initially proposed the development two years ago, said Key West City Planner Donald Craig.We told them at the time they had to go do the channel analyses and have approvals in place from [the U.S.] Army Corps [of Engineers] and then Dr. Walker had to deal with a code-related fine from development; he got that resolved.The Florida Department of Environmental Protection would also need to approve the project; it would include trimming some mangroves, but not removing them.If ultimately approved by the Planning Board, the plan would go to the City Commission for approval as a conditional-use measure. It would also go to the state Department of Economic Opportunty because its considered a major development.

The proposed agreement for the 12-acre upland site on Shrimp Road transfers development rights from Big Pine Key and other Lower Keys islands for the hotel. Permanent residences will be limited to staff housing and commercial apartments. Planned resort facilities include a 150-seat restaurant, bath house and fitness center. Working waterfront uses such as a marina with boat repair and storage, along with a fish house, will occupy about a third of the property. Public access to a waterfront walkway will be open from 7 a.m. until dusk.In conjunction with the resort plan, commissioners hold a hearing on an ordinance that says liveaboard marina slips do not require building permit allocations under the countys rate-ofgrowth ordinance. Slips approved under the ordinance can only be rented for vessels capable of navigation, not permanently docked houseboats.The marina issues are scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Harvey Government Center, 1200 Truman Ave. In other issues on the commissions agenda:Brian Stewart, who describes himself as the mayor of Boca Chica Beach, will speak under public comment at 10 a.m. to object to the planned cutting of about 175 feet of shade trees on the oceanside of the parking lot for Boca Chica Beach.Staff at Naval Air Station Key West requested the county to cut the trees that lie within a clear zone.

Candidates have collected petitions and qualified for the ballot. Campaigns have been conducted. Ballots have been printed.Lewis ruled last week that lawmakers failed during the 2012 redistricting process to follow the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments, approved by voters in 2010.The Keys became part of the new U.S. House District 26, now represented by Rep. Joe Garcia. Before redistricting, the Keys were in District 18 and represented by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The new redistricting will likely not have a large effect on the Keys.Groups challenging the congressional map, including the League of Women Voters of Florida and Common Cause, declined to comment Tuesday, awaiting a decision from their legal team about how to respond to the legislative leaders request. In a joint statement, Gaetz and Weatherford noted that more than 63,000 military and overseas voters have been sent ballots, with the first batches of in-state absentee ballots going out next week.Any attempt to change the districts at this late stage of the 2014 elections process would cause chaos and confusion and would threaten the rights of our deployed military voters, Gaetz and Weatherford said in the statement.Lewis ruling specifically took aim at the districts represented by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, a Jacksonville Democrat, and U.S. Rep. Daniel Webster, a Winter Garden Republican.Browns District 5, which winds its way from Jacksonville to Orlando, has been criticized for years as one of the worst examples of gerrymandering in the nation.But any changes to the two districts could have a domino effect on surrounding seats and ripple through the rest of the map.Keys likely wont see big effect with new mapsBy JIM TURNERNews Service of FloridaPOLITICSKeynoter photo by LARRY KAHNA new federal designation of critical habitat for loggerhead sea turtles covers a lot of ocean near the Florida Keys, and some beach nesting spots.

That doomsday clock restarted on Thursday when the Florida Public Service Commission told us we would get no more phones with 305 area codes in Monroe County. All the new ones will be in the 786 area code from Miami-Dade. 76,351 people. Two telephone area codes. This may not be the stupidest thing Ive ever heard of but it has to make the bureaucratic fumbles Top 1,000 list. Created in 1947, the 305 was one of the first area codes in the country; back then, it covered all of Florida. After splits and resplits drove it farther and farther south, it now serves all the phones in Floridas southernmost county and some of the phones in Miami-Dade. Regions take pride in their identity from the simplest things. New York is still the Big Apple. Everyone knows Beverly Hills zip code is 90210. And the Keys are the 305. Oh sure, were willing to share that with some of Miami-Dade, but it belongs to us. Telephone service morphs, but it used to go from harder to use to easier. Each area code has 7,920,000 different usable phone numbers. Although there are nearly 10 million possible seven-digit phone numbers in an area code, some numbers such as 211, 311, 411 and on up to 911, plus all numbers starting with 0 or 1, simply arent available. The entire state of Vermont is known as the 802. There are 608,827 people and a gazillion telephones in all of Vermont and they somehow manage with the 802. In fact, Vermont has enough extra that a podcaster in Seattle has an 802 number for her call-in show. There are 76,351 people in Monroe County, 99 percent of whom live in the Keys, and the PSC thinks were running out? [Editors note: There are far more 305s in Miami-Dade than there are in the Keys.] Hey, Public Service Commission we dont need no stinkin new area code. All we need are a few more exchanges. Thats simple to do. Move a few mainland exchanges from 305 to 786 and make those exchanges available in Monroe County. Dick Harper Key Colony BeachCrosswalk had inputThe Key Largo Livable CommuniKeys Master Plan was prepared by residents of Key Largo and Monroe County. The plans foundation was established through public input at workshops where community participants identified their perceptions and desires for Key Largo. As a result of the public input, one of the design concepts proposed to guide subsequent activities and communicate the studys key recommendations was to improve conditions on the U.S. 1 corridor conditions. In the Florida Keys, U.S. 1 functions as both the major highway and a main street for the local communities. Improvements, it was determined, were needed to increase bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. After some fatalities occurred involving pedestrians and bicyclists trying to cross U.S. 1, the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowner Associations wrote a letter to the state Department of Transportation asking for implementation of the communityauthored Liveable CommuniKeys plan and create safe pedestrian crossings in the areas were these accidents were taking place. DOT conducted a pedestrian mobility and safety study that showed that the gaps between traffic, required to safely cross U.S. 1, were at times nonexistent or not long enough to cross safely. At times there were increments as long as 15 minutes when there were no gaps at all. As many as 40 pedestrians were observed trying to cross U.S. 1 in a one-hour period. The federation maintains that there is a need for safe conditions for all users of U.S. 1. How that is accomplished, we leave that up to the experts. Kay Thacker vice president Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowner Associations Editors note: The federation specifically asked for crosswalks around mile markers 101.4 and around 99 and 100.Clear the viewsI live in Marathon. I would like to thank who ever finally decided to get rid of the big cactus and other streetand sidewalk-blocking shrubs from the entry of my street. So many times I have had to pull so far out just to see traffic and bicyclists coming that I have nearly had incidents with bicyclists. I so appreciate being able to see clearly now. More areas need to be cleared so there are no accidents due to views being blocked. Again, a big thank you to those involved.

Rodney Barreto Key Largo Coral GablesSame-sex marriage isnt about abhorrent behavior, its about basic civil rights for everyoneAs we await a ruling on what could be a potentially landmark case in the Keys regarding same-sex marriage potentially a catalyst for changing state law we must take inventory of the rhetoric and propaganda being spread by some same-sex marriage opponents. At a July 7 hearing on Plantation Key, Key Westers Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones had their lawsuit against Monroe County Clerk Amy Heavilin heard by Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia. Huntsman and Jones had sued Heavilin on April 1 when her office denied them a marriage license, citing Floridas constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. Heavilin is not defending the suit, but state Attorney General Pam Bondi is. We heard from Mat Staver, founder of the conservative Liberty Counsel, at that hearing. He made an unfathomable leap in his address to Garcia, suggesting that gay marriage would lead to polygamy and lack of sexual boundaries. Exactly how do you make the jump from same-sex marriage to polygamy? The same way weve seen it linked to everything from AIDS to bestiality, from child pornography to sado-masochism and who knows what else. There is no logical leap. Do these extremists have no boundaries or shame? Whats next? Same-sex marriage can lead to cancer, agoraphobia and tone-deafness? By now, were likely numb to the outrageous ways anti-gay groups operate or the lengths they will go to espouse their beliefs. But we shouldnt be. There is no basis for these outrageous accusations, yet they are out there more than ever because fear has a way of making you say or think crazy thoughts. The Liberty Counsel is a self-proclaimed nonprofit public-interest law firm and ministry that provides free legal help in defense of Christian religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, and the traditional family. Staver has written nine books, including SameSex Marriage: Putting Every Household at Risk. Because, apparently, what consenting adults do among themselves directly affects everyone elses life. Maybe Stavers inspired by Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively, noted for his opposition to LGBT rights and a proponent for criminalizing homosexuality pretty much like Russia did. These men and their affiliated groups are really just hired guns, self-proclaimed moral lobbyists with few facts to buttress their arguments. We believe the case of Huntsman and Jones or one of the other cases in Florida challenging same-sex marriage will ultimately be decided for the plaintiffs. It is, after all, just common civil rights being litigated. Perhaps thats when the moralists will admit theyre on the wrong side of history.

Same-sex marriage can lead to cancer, agoraphobia and tone-deafness? Big cases face the State Supreme CourtThe Florida Supreme Court began an annual summer break last week, taking a breather from its routine of issuing opinions each Thursday in complex legal disputes and the steady flow of death-penalty appeals. But justices will face major issues when they return from the break cases that could affect everything from utility rates to sentences for juveniles who commit murder. The court is scheduled to resume releasing its weekly opinions Aug. 28, though it can handle issues before then as needed. While dozens of cases are pending before the court, here are four to watch:Online travelIn courtrooms and the Legislature, online travel companies and counties have sparred for years about hotel bed taxes. The dispute centers on whether companies such as Expedia and Orbitz should pay tourist-development taxes on the full amounts they collect from customers, or only on the portions that go to room rentals. The companies contend the portions that do not pay for room rentals are service charges, which are not subject to the hotel bed tax. Monroe County led the way in fighting for the travel firms money, suing Expedia, Orbitz, Priceline and Travelocity in January 2009, alleging they skirted paying Tourist Development Council bed taxes (taxes charged on per-night lodging) when they bought rooms at wholesale rates, resold them for higher prices, then pocketed the difference in bed-tax dollars. Other counties joined the lawsuit and a judge declared the case a class action. The following summer, Monroe settled with the four companies for a combined $2 million; other counties split another $4.5 million. The settlements, however, did not include any admission by the travel companies that they actually owed the bed taxes. The Supreme Court heard arguments in the new case, Alachua County, et al, vs. Expedia Inc., on April 30.Juvenile timeFlorida courts have struggled to determine how they should carry out two landmark U.S. Supreme Court rulings that put new restrictions on life sentences for juveniles who commit murders or other serious felonies. That has led to the issues landing at the Florida Supreme Court, which during the past year has heard arguments in at least two cases that remain unresolved. One of the cases, from Bay County, focuses on Rebecca Falcon, who was sentenced to life in prison for a murder she committed in 1997, when she was 15. The cases are Rebecca Lee Falcon vs. State of Florida and Shimeeka Daquiel Gridine vs. State of Florida.Workers compBusiness groups, insurers, unions and representatives of injured workers closely follow legal and political fights about Floridas workers compensation system.And the Supreme Court drew a full house last month when it heard arguments in a case stemming from injuries suffered in 2009 by St. Petersburg firefighter Bradley Westphal. The case focuses on what are known in the complicated workers-compensation system as temporary total disability benefits.Westphal received those benefits for two years, which is a limit under state law. But when Westphal sought to receive permanent total disability benefits, a judge ruled the request was premature. That created a gap until Westphal could get permanent benefits several months later and prompted the legal fight, with Westphals attorneys arguing that the twoyear limit on temporary benefits is unconstitutional. The case is Bradley Westphal vs. City of St. Petersburg, etc., et al.Legal aidSupreme Court justices are confronted with a dispute in their own industry about how to help fund legal services for the poor.A coalition of attorneys, including former Supreme Court Justice Raoul Cantero, filed a petition with the court last month seeking an increase in fees on lawyers to pay for legal-aid programs. But The Florida Bar has come out strongly against the proposal, which could cost attorneys an extra $100 a year.The petition requests the Florida Supreme Court to raise the $265 cap on The Florida Bars annual membership fees, with the added charge going to The Florida Bar Foundation, which funds legal aid. The Bar, however, argues that the legal system needs a longer-term solution. Legal Services of Greater Miami is the nonprofit that provides legal aid to Monroe Countys needy. Keynoter staff contributed to this report.Here are four to watch for the decisionsBy JIM SAUNDERSNews Service of FloridaIN THE COURTS
A cruiser for more than 15 years, Richard Biter noticed something interesting on a recent trip: His ship bypassed Ocho Rios, the Jamaican port where many previous cruises had stopped, and headed instead to Falmouth, which had been developed by Royal Caribbean International and the island nation.Biter, assistant secretary for intermodal systems development at the Florida Department of Transporta tion, started thinking about how Ocho Rios had lost that business and then started thinking about his home state.I dont want to see that happen to Florida, he said. Im as competitive as the next person, and I realize that the cruise industry is a competitive industry. The result of that train of thought was a report commissioned by the department and released in December that cautioned that Florida ports which have long dominated the global cruise industry are at risk of losing business as operators look to destinations around the world such as Asia, Europe and Brazil to grow their passenger base.The shift has been years in the making as cruise lines have worked to spread a vacation model born in South Florida to new global markets.We all aspired to the global emergence of cruising as a mainstream form of holiday, said Adam Goldstein, president and chief operating officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises. Many of us have worked at that for decades, and its happening and its exciting. He added: It certainly bears remembering that Miami still is the cruise capital of the world. Florida reported almost 14 million revenue passengers in fiscal 2012, with expectations that the number will grow to 21.6 million by fiscal 2026. Passengers are counted when they get on and off a ship according to the industry standard, so 14 million revenue passengers would equal 7 million individuals. The cruise industry contributed $2.43 billion to Floridas gross state product in fiscal 2011, according to the report.While the 29-page report titled Floridas Cruise Industry: A Statewide Perspective suggests that growth in international destinations could eventually be good for Florida, it also warns that the states status as a top cruise draw is not guaranteed.In the months since the report was issued, the buzz around global deployment in the industry has become almost deafening, even as news from the competitive Caribbean has been glum.Foreign portsChina, with its growing middle class, is expected to become the second-largest cruise market in the world after the United States by 2017. Australia now leads the world in terms of market penetration and passenger growth for cruising, according to a June report from the Cruise Lines International Association.About 3.6 percent of Australians took a cruise last year, compared to previous leader North America, where 3.3 percent of the population cruised. And the numbers of passengers grew 20 percent year over year, with more than 833,000 Australians cruising globally last year. Last year, 11.7 million North Americans went on cruises to destinations around the world, including the Caribbean. Miami-based Royal Caribbean announced in April that it would send its newest ship, Quantum of the Seas, to home port in Shanghai following a short introductory season in New Jersey. Sister ship Anthem of the Seas, which had been scheduled to sail from Fort Lauderdale starting next fall, will instead replace Quantum in New Jersey.Steven Cernak, chief executive and director of Port Everglades, said that while Royal Caribbean will meet its contractual obligations to the port by deploying another ship, he only learned that Anthem of the Seas was not coming to Fort Lauderdale when he read it in the newspaper.Of course I was surprised, Cernak said. Having said that, it was a business decision on their part, which I have to respect. They have a right to deploy their ships where they see the opportunity, and from that perspective I understand. Until recent years, nearly all major ships launched in South Florida or at least spent part of their inaugural year in Miami or Fort Lauderdale. But Carnival did not send one of its Dream-class ships here until Carnival Breeze, the third in the group, arrived in Miami in late 2012. Norwegian Cruise Line introduced its Breakaway class last year in New York City. North American cruise lines have increased their presence in Europe over the last several years, especially in the summer months. After a difficult stretch due to economic recession in Southern Europe and negative publicity surrounding the 2012 wreck of the Costa Concordia in Italy, cruise operators say they are encouraged by the strength of the Mediterranean and North European markets this year. In percentage terms, clearly South Florida is not going to have the same share of all cruise home port departures that it used to have, because the rest of the world has gotten involved, Goldstein said. A number of markets around the world like Australia, Germany, Italy and China are becoming give-or-take million-customer markets per year. Thats attracting ships that may have in the past been in South Florida. While Carnival Cruise Lines has 15 home ports in North America that can be reached by car, senior vice president for itinerary development and port operations Terry Thornton said PortMiami and Port Everglades make up the lines most important cruising region. More than 1.2 million of the cruise lines roughly 4.5 million guests are expected to travel through those ports this year, he said.

Key West numbersKey West is a popular port of call for ships that left the mainland and are heading to the Caribbean, and does some heavy traffic. According to a city document, in fiscal year 2012-13, 327 ships came calling with a combined 813,713 passengers. They docked mostly at the Outer Mole and Pier B, although Mallory Square is also a docking spot. Passenger disembarkation fees per person are $2.50 at Mallory Square and $10.63 at the other two piers. Visitors getting off ships at the Outer Mole paid $1.84 million, passengers at Pier B paid $1.53 million and passengers at Mallory Square paid $296,000. The U.S. Navy gets 40 percent of the fees at the Outer Mole.

The 35to 70-foot depths are producing plenty of mangroves in the twoto fivepound class, plus yellowtails. Even the biggest flag tails are almost easy to catch, as their wariness decreases in the dark.Your baits of choice for the mangroves are live pilchards that show up in your slick at dusk, although fresh dead ones will also work. You can also use small live pinfish and chunks of ballyhoo. The same yellowtail baits used during the day will work at night, including pieces of ballyhoo, silversides and shrimp.The mutton bite on the deeper wrecks remains good, and there are plenty of amberjack and jack crevalle to give you a good tug-of-war.Nice-size grouper have been taken on the deeper wrecks of late. Larger live baits, such as grunt, blue runners and large pinfish, are the ticket.Offshore, the dolphin bite continues to be pretty good, with plenty of schoolie and sublegal fish. Those venturing a little farther find bigger fish gaffers and the occasional slammer. Good-size blackfin tuna are still prowling the underwater mountains known as the humps. Loads of fish in the 15to 25-pound category are taking live baits fished deep, 200-plus feet. Cigar minnows, threadfin herring and live pilchards get the job done.The weeks bestCapt. Ariel Medero reports the dolphin and tuna bite is still red hot. Inshore, the reef is loading up with mangrove snapper, and the wrecks are active with amberjacks, jack crevalle and mutton snapper. There are still some mangroves in the gulf, but theyre headed to the reef. And the tarpon are still biting at the Seven Mile Bridge.SeaSquareds Capt. Wayne Burri has been busy snapper fishing on the reef and shark fishing in the bay this week. Shallow-water, catch-andrelease shark fishing is producing double-digit landings of large lemon sharks right now. Capt. Jeff Knapp is offering a combo tarpon/snapper trip that keeps everyone happy with tarpon landings at the Seven Mile Bridge combined with catches of mangrove snapper and black grouper for something to feed the hungry anglers.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, reports the dolphin are plentiful offshore and responded to skirted ballyhoos. Mixed in are small blackfin tuna and the occasional bonita. His anglers jumped and landed tarpon in Key West Harbor, with yellowtails, mangroves and sharks there, as well.Capt.

When he was 52, he completed the round-trip openwater swim to the lighthouse in five hours and 11 minutes, and afterward forged the idea of a competitive group swim.We need to bring the attention to a national treasure, Herlth said. The large beacons were fabricated in the 1800s, including three built before the Civil War, to warn ships away from the Florida Keys reef tract. GPS navigation has replaced the need for lighthouses in the Keys.Swimmers can enter the event solo or as twoor fourperson teams.Entry fees are $95 per individual swimmer, $75 per person for members of a twoperson team and $50 per person for members of a fourperson team. Swimmers can register at www.swim alligatorlight.com .SWIMMINGHeading out? What not to packIf you want to travel light summertime is when most Keys residents do their traveling its not merely what you pack that matters, its what you dont pack.

Think outside PB&JIt was probably 15 years ago that I discovered the magic that is a nearly empty jar of jam.Until then, Id always hated those sticky knuckle moments of scraping the slimy dregs of the jar, hoping I had enough to add that sweet balance so needed by the otherwise leaden smear of peanut butter on my bread.Then an Italian cook who was supposed to be teaching me pasta making got sidetracked. She wanted a salad to go with our orecchiette, and she wanted to make her own vinaigrette. Thats when she reached for a nearly empty jar of strawberry jam from the refrigerator, dumped in some olive oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar, some salt and pepper. Then she put the cover back on the jar and shook like mad.Revolutionary? Hardly. But it was delicious. More importantly, it changed my relationship with jam. It wasnt just a sandwich spread. And it totally made sense. After all, a jar of grape jelly has long been the not-sosecret ingredient for many a potluck meatball. And since that day, Ive used a dollop of one jam or another in nearly every vinaigrette Ive made.And thats just the start. I regularly turn to jams and jellies for adding oomph to everything, including sweetand-sour chicken (apricot jam), barbecue pork ribs (seedless raspberry), beef marinades (orange marmalade), ham glazes (blackberry or cherry), sweet-and-Fruit spreads a nice change, and theres moreBy J.M.

It turns out the popular tablet computer may contain nickel, one of the most common allergy-inducing metals.Recent reports in medical journals detail nickel allergies from a variety of personal electronic devices, including laptops and mobile phones. But it was an Apple iPad that caused an itchy body rash in an 11-year-old boy recently treated at a San Diego hospital, according to a report in Mondays journal Pediatrics.Nickel rashes arent lifethreatening but they can be very uncomfortable, and they may require treatment with steroids and antibiotics if the skin eruptions become infected, said Dr. Sharon Jacob, a dermatologist at Rady Childrens Hospital, where the boy was treated. Jacob, who co-wrote the report, said the young patient had to miss school because of the rash. The boy discussed in the Pediatrics report had a common skin condition that causes scaly patches, but he developed a different rash all over his body that didnt respond to usual treatment. Skin testing showed he had a nickel allergy, and doctors traced it to an iPad his family had bought in 2010. Doctors tested the device and detected a chemical found in nickel in the iPads outside coating. He used the iPad daily, Jacob said.He got better after putting it in a protective case, she saidWhether all iPad models and other Apple devices contain nickel is uncertain; Apple spokesman Chris Gaither said the company had no comment.People with existing nickel allergies are at risk for rashes from nickel-containing devices. According to an advisory about cell phones on the website of the Nickel Institute, a global association based in Toronto representing nickel producers, the risk arises from contact with nickel-plated outer surfaces over prolonged periods of time.The length of time required to elicit an allergic reaction will vary from five or 10 minutes to never, depending on the sensitivity of the individual, the advisory says.Nickel rashes also have been traced to other common products including some jewelry, eyeglass frames and zippers. Jacob said evidence suggests nickel allergies are become more common, or increasingly recognized. She cited national data showing that about 25 percent of children who get skin tests for allergies have nickel allergies, versus about 17 percent a decade ago. She said doctors need to consider electronic devices as potential sources when patients seek treatment for skin rashes.Its the nickel they contain, study suggestsBy LINDSEY TANNERAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTH iPads such as this have been known to cause rashes.

Location of the beach hasnt been made public to protect the nest. The webcam, viewed at fla-keys.com/turtlecam, offers daytime observation of the loggerhead nest in natural light and is illuminated by infrared lighting at night to avoid disturbing turtles. Focused on a nest with eggs estimated to hatch during the next few days, the webcam is part of ongoing efforts in the Keys to raise awareness of sea turtles and the need to protect them. Loggerhead, green, leatherback, hawksbill and Kemps ridley sea turtles nest on beaches in the Keys and other parts of Florida, and inhabit Keys waters. All five species are considered either threatened or endangered. The webcam is funded by the Florida Keys tourism council and its installation has been approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. www.KeysInfoNet.com

Its a cheap and easy way to add tons of flavor. If nothing else, you really must try fig jam in a grilled cheese (use extra-sharp cheddar). Fruit spreads as the retail category is collectively known accounts for some $959 million in sales a year in the U.S., where some 1 billion pounds are produced, according to the International Jelly and Preserve Association. And the leading variety? Strawberry, followed by grape, then raspberry. Not that youre limited to those basics. The jam and jelly market has exploded with unusual flavors and combinations in recent years. Some of them such as Bathtub Gins cocktail-inspired creations are particularly suited for spooning into sauces for savory meats or over cheeses. Knowing Im not alone in loving this utterly lowbrow food trick, I asked the pros for their favorite outside-the-PB&J uses for jams and jellies.Ted AllenJams and jellies are valuable shortcuts for sauces and vinaigrettes because those preserves note that word are always in the pantry, bright and tart and sweet and ready to go, Allen, host of Food Networks Chop ped, said via e-mail. They can add a depth, complexity and acidity to a lot of foods without requiring washing or peeling (or, for that matter, a trip to the market). Pork, duck and turkey notably benefit from the addition of fruit, he said.Bed FordFord, the chef behind Fords Filling Station in Culver City, California, and the cookbook, Taming the Feast, loves jams for their simplicity. Its part of what makes them so versatile. He particularly likes tomato jam.I use it for a seafood cocktail sauce, a migno nette for oysters, or as a lamb burger condiment along with goat cheese, roasted spring onions and apple wood smoked bacon, he said via email. Other jams and preserves are well suited to game birds, like apricot. Add a little water to the preserves and spices like cloves, black pepper and cardamom to make a glaze. Its a great finish to the dish.April BloomfieldBloomfield, the chef behind the James Beard Award-winning New York restaurant The Spotted Pig, favors adding cranberry jelly to pan sauces for meats. Its an easy way to gussy up a simple sauce. It makes it glossy and adds a touch of sweetness to something gamey like venison, she said.Dorie GreenspanWeve all seen that easy party food of a slab of cream cheese topped with pepper jelly. But baking and French cooking expert Greenspan takes the cheese-and-jam pairing upscale. She tops sheeps milk cheese with black cherry jam, and mixes raspberry jam with balsamic vinegar and dollops that on sliced mozzarella. But it isnt just about adding sweetness. I often use bitter orange marmalade as a glaze for roast chicken, she said. I like using citrus with chicken. It sharpens and brightens the pan juices, and adding a marmalade glaze ups the citrus pop without really adding sweetness. When the marmalade cooks, its bitter edge becomes more prominent.Mellisa DArabianDArabian of Food Networks Ten Dollar Dinners is a fan of the classic party meatball, but she breaks with the grape jelly tradition, preferring raspberry jam, instead. She also likes to spice it up. I love to make cocktail meatballs and coat them in a bit of jam jazzed up with some spice [like cayenne or chipotle] and acid [vinegar or lime juice], she wrote. That salty-spicysweet flavor is a perfect party starter!Get yourself in a jamFrom Jam, 1B Wednesday, July 16, 2014 3B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com And online at www.KeysInfoNet.com/UnwindFlorida Keys Lifestyle Magazine On, under or around the waterLook for the new issue ofThe Next Issue:July 18 July 19 Schooner Limousine ServiceFirst Class Transportation Serving the Florida Keys and South Florida305-522-0487 305-394-2045 MUSIC FOR THE OCEANPhoto by BOB CAREMusicians performing at Saturdays Underwater Music Festival at Looe Key in the Lower Keys are (from left) Nancy Barta, Samantha Langsdale and Fernando Barta.

CALLCLASSIFIEDS743-5551 Study: Friends share DNA similaritiesYou may be more similar to your friends than you think: A study suggests that the DNA code tends to be more alike between friends than between strangers.Thats beyond the effect of shared ethnicity, researchers say. And it could be important for theories about human evolution, says James Fowler of the University of California, San Diego.He and Yale researcher Nicholas Christakis present their results in a paper released Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.How much more alike are friends than strangers? Not much. Imagine the small similarity between fourth cousins, people who share a set of great-great-great grandparents.The study included 1,932 participants in a long-running health study in Framingham, Mass. Researchers knew who was close friends with whom from the 1970s to the early 2000s because of information gathered for the study.From this group they identified 1,367 pairs of close friends and about 1.2 million pairs of strangers. Then they examined information about nearly 467,000 locations in the DNA code of each participant. They looked for how similar the friend pairs were, and compared that to how similar the stranger pairs were.The researchers found that genes affecting sense of smell were especially likely to be similar in friends.Why would friends have more DNA similarities than strangers? Fowler said its not clear. One possibility is that similar genes nudge people toward similar environments, which then gives them a chance to meet. Another possibility is that people who share certain genes also share skills that become more valuable when the people work together, he said. This could have been important over evolutionary time, and so set up a pattern that people still follow, he said.Fowler also said its not clear whether the finding pertains to groups outside of the Framingham study group, which is overwhelmingly Irish and Italian. In any case, findings of DNA similarities between friends could help explain how behaviors like altruism developed over evolutionary time, he said.Francisco Ayala, who studies evolutionary genetics at the University of California, Irvine, said the studys results surprised him. But the statistics are there to back up the conclusions, he said.Ben Domingue, a researcher at the University of Colorado, Boulder, called the results intriguing. I am fairly convinced that they are onto something.Similar skills could be among the reasonsBy MALCOLM RITTERAssociated PressRELATIONSHIPS LIVING BRIEFS
