Free-divers and tankdivers will crowd Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Florida Bay waters up and down the Keys during miniseason, running from 12:01 a.m. Wednesday until 11:59 p.m. Thursday looking for the tasty crustaceans. Pre-scouting for lobster is an important aspect of miniseason, so dont be surprised to see a lot of boat trailers heading south into the Keys early in the week. Its already crazy busy, said Wendy Hall, owner of Tildens Scuba Center and Dive Duck Key. Mini-season is always the last Wednesday and Thurs day of each July, and falls especially late this year. Because it runs so late this year, some people have actually made the mistake of coming in the wrong week, Hall said.The eight-month commercial and regular recreational lobster season opens Aug. 6, with commercial fishermen allowed to drop traps in the water on Aug. 1 (beginning the so-called soak season), the day after mini-season closes.Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway owner Ernie Crawford purchased that Marathon business in late April, but Crawford said his boats were rented out for mini-season well before that. Weve been sold out of boats for probably five months, he said. Most of the time, when the people leave, they rent them for next year.

Monroe County Sheriff Rick Roth had asked the Marathon City Council to move the stop because it was attracting as many homeless people and drunks as Middle Keys workers who come down from the mainland. The new stop with no shelters or benches will be in the Kmart parking lot. A sign with bus routes and times will be posted by Aug. 1. Two tourists die in water incidentsA Georgia man died while snorkeling off Key Largo Thursday, making it two Upper Keys water-related deaths since Wednesday. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says that in Thursdays incident, John Marshall, 71, of Johns Creek, Ga., was aboard a 25-foot private vessel with nine others near the Carysfort Lighthouse, about six miles off Key Largo. The group was snorkeling shortly after noon, says Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin. Marshall was on his way back to the boat when members of his group saw him face down in the water. They pulled him into the boat. Another boat nearby happened to have a doctor aboard, and he switched boats and started cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Marshall, Herrin said.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission also responded with a boat, and took Marshall to shore at Ocean Reef in North Key Largo, where he was pronounced dead.That followed the Thursday death of a New Jersey man who died after diving off Key Largo Wednesday morning.Herrin says Gary Lanier, 45, of Kenvil, N.J., was on a dive trip with his two children, ages 15 and 18, at the Spiegel Grove wreck with Blue Water Divers out of Key Largo.The Spiegel Grove is a 510-foot former military ship scuttled in 2002. Its at Dixie Shoal and its top deck is in about 60 feet underwater. Herrin said that according to witnesses, including hisAutopsies set for scuba diver and snorkelerKEY LARGOKeynoter StaffCops mum on Keys mans deathSWAIN COUNTY, N.C. Right off the Great Smoky Mountains Expressway in western North Carolina, the narrow, two-lane Lower Alarka Road turns into the winding Grassy Branch Road, which descends in tight circles banked by a tributary of Fontana Lake. Dilapidated trailers are common sights, as are quaint log cabins not quite hidden in the thick woods just past the Alarka Creek, which runs parallel to parts of the road.If you can get over the fear of head-on collisions, the scenic drive is quite enjoyable. But for friends of Shane Hamilton, who died in an ATV wreck earlier this month after he struck a lowlying metal cable that someone tied between two trees, the journey is eerie. Its a weird feeling going up there again, said Hamiltons friend Daryn Page. It was like going through hell all over again.Daryn and her husband Mark Page, who was Hamiltons Key Largo business partner, were last in Nantahala Township over the July 4 weekend to take Hamiltons wife and children back to the Keys after their husband and father died.This time, the Pages wanted answers they were unable to get from making phone calls from the Keys. The crash happened on July 3, and Hamilton died the next day at a hospital in nearby Asheville. The Pages and Marks brother Guy Hill went back to the Swain County town this week to attempt to find out who owns the land where Hamilton, 45, struck the cable. Im trying to find who owns the property where the accident happened, because the sheriff wont give it out, said Page, owner of Page Excavating. The Swain County Sheriffs Office quickly dismissed Hamiltons death as an accident and is not conducting further investigation.

Currently, the city contracts ambulance services and seeks new bids every few years.Nearly $2.5 million has been appropriated to begin a city-run ambulance service in fiscal year 2015. Wednesday, the City Commission gave tentative approval to a $56,550,741 million budget for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Public budget hearings will be set and a final budget will be voted on in September. District 3 Commissioner Billy Wardlow says the $2.5 million will finance four new ambulances and 15 additional emergency medical technicians. There will be an ambulance at each of the citys three fire stations Simonton Street, North Roosevelt Boulevard and Kennedy Drive and a fourth as a backup unit, which would also be used for special events such as the annual powerboat races.The city is building a fourth fire station on Angela Street where City Hall used to be.

The New Jersey Turn pike Authority filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Plantation Keys Jersey Boardwalk Pizza this week.The suit, filed July 21 in New Jersey federal court, claims the mile marker 90.5 pizza and sandwich shops logo is too similar the Garden State Parkway logo. Both circular logos are green with a yellow border.The turnpikes says Garden State along the top, while Boardwalks says Jersey Boardwalk. The middle of the Turnpike Authoritys logo says Parkway while Board walks says Pizza Co. The Turnpike Authority logo has no words along the bottom of the circle; Boardwalks says Subs. Cheesesteaks. Pasta.Both logos contain an image of the map of New Jersey in their center. The lawsuit states Boardwalk willfully and blatantly misappropriated the turnpikes registered trademark in an effort to trade upon the fame and goodwill associated with the turnpikes logo and to attract customers and potential franchisees from the state of New Jersey. Thomas Feeney, a Turnpike Authority spokes man, said the lawsuit came about because Boardwalks franchising company, Jersey Boardwalk Franchising Co. Inc., says on website that it aims to open franchises throughout the East Coast. This is not just about some pizza joint in the Keys, Feeney said. JoyAnn Kenny, Board walks attorney, blasted the lawsuit, saying, I would think that a better use of taxpayer funds would be to focus expenditures on the condition and safety of our highways rather than to fund a lawsuit against a Florida pizza restaurant. Feeney said the agencys lawyer sent a letter to Boardwalk owners Paul Dimatteo and George Platt asking them to stop using the logo, but the company has not taken it down from its website or from outside its South Florida locations in Plantation Key and Florida City. They refused. And here we are, Feeney said.Boardwalk opened on Plantation Key in 2006 and has been using a similar logo ever since, Kenny said. The original simply stated Boardwalk Pizza, which has since been updated to say Jersey Boardwalk Pizza.There is clearly no plausible likelihood of confusion among patrons of the restaurant, or prospective franchises, as to any affiliation or association with the N.J. Turnpike Authority, Kenny said in an e-mail. That proposition is simply ridiculous. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued Jersey Boardwalk Pizza a federal registration for its logo in 2011. Kenny added that there are countless businesses right here in New Jersey making use of the logo and various renditions thereof in connection with all sorts of goods and services. Nevertheless, Feeney said that unless Boardwalk changes its logo, the Turnpike Authoritys lawsuit will continue. We wish the owners well in their effort to spread the joy of New Jersey-style pizza along the East Coast, Feeney said. But were going to insist that they come up with their own logo rather than using ours.Garden State says copyright infringed uponBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comJersey to Keys pizza joint: Slice up logoCochran and Deputy Chief Jason Gardner in Cochrans office on Monday. Cochran ended the interview in less than two minutes. Its a civil matter, not a criminal matter, and therefore, were out of it, Gardner said. Weve talked to the family, and we have given the family all the information weve got, Cochran said.Booby-trappedTo Hamiltons family and friends, the cable was an obvious booby-trap. Jim Clayton, the man who owns the cabin the Hamiltons rented, also thinks the cable was put there to inflict harm not to warn people away from the ATV trail. In his 14 years of owning his cabin and hiking the trails in the surrounding woods, he never saw the cable, and he said the path is a known and popular spot for hikers and four-wheelers alike.But Gardner said setting cables and other obstacles along paths in the area is common to prevent trespassers from accessing private property. He even seemed to be familiar with the cable that killed Hamilton.It was spray painted at one time, and it just kind of faded, from what Ive been told, Gardner said. Clayton said he was on the path, which is just minutes from his Mountainside Drive cabin, as early as January, and he never saw the cable. In her July report, Detective C.P. Posey concluded the path where Hamilton struck the cable is on private property but she also wrote the Sheriffs Office isnt able to conclude who owns it. Cochran would not provide ownership information during the July 21 interview. Were not going to get into that, he said. He was asked, Why not? He wouldnt answer.OwnershipThe Reporter/Keynoter found out this week the land is owned by a Jupiter, Fla., couple named Charles and Francine Cavallo. The couple bought the 9.17 acres of land in October 2005, according to Swain County records. The Cavallos could not be reached for comment. The Cavallos property is about a quarter mile up Mountainside Drive, about a 15-degree angle climb. The path now has a No Trespassing sign posted on a tree. Daryn and Mark Page said that sign was not there when they went to the property on July 4 to pick up the surviving Hamiltons. Nor were there any markers tied to the cable. There were no signs up there, Daryn Page said. None, zip. Red, white and blue tassels now hang from the cable. They were recently attached, the Pages said. Another recent addition to the scene is a cross that Clayton posted on the side of the path. The wooden, white rood has messages of memorial written on it by Hamiltons loved ones.I will always love you and youll be in my heart forever, Hamiltons wife Karrissa wrote. My husband, my best friend and the most amazing father to our beautiful children, I love you.Unsolved deaths?Hamilton had not vacationed in Swain County before. But the ATV enthusiast settled on the Mountain side Drive location after researching destinations to go four-wheeling.He specifically spent a lot of time looking for a place to ride, Mark Page said. Thats why he came here.H. Odell Chastain is a former Swain County Sheriffs Office deputy and a former member of several other area police departments. He is running against Cochran for sheriff in November. While not commenting on the specifics of Hamiltons death or about Cochrans eight years as sheriff, he said it is not uncommon in the area for deaths that, in his opinion, warrant further scrutiny to go uninvestigated. Chastain said in one instance when he was worked as a cop in Bryson City, Swains county seat, he was approached by a man who said he had information about local drug crimes. The next day they fished him out of Fontana Lake, Chastain said. I know of stuff that has happened that they didnt put a bunch of investigation into.Sheriff refuses to talkFrom Hamilton, 1A KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday, July 26, 2014 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW SAT.9483 SUN.9382 MON.9282 TUES.9282 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of thunderstorms.For the extended forecast visitKeysInfoNet.com/weatherThe Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

He said it wasnt hard to get them rented for the mini-season. There was a waiting list, he said. We have one client call us every week to see if anybody cancelled. In addition, Crawford said all 15 rooms at his hotel next to Pips are fully booked for Wednesday and Thursday. We have some just before and some after, but none for mini-season, Crawford said.Victor LaMorte owns Reef Marine (two locations) and Florida Keys Powerboats in the Upper Keys and said all his available rental boats sold out well in advance.We dont have to do advertisement. The hype of it does it itself, he said. Newcomers to mini-season should know that law enforcement will be out in full force looking for resource violations. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission usually complements its Keys enforcement staff with officers from the mainland, and the Monroe County Sheriffs Office deploys all its marine units. Both agencies also heavily patrol boat ramps and such during mini-season. And of course, the U.S. Coast Guard will have a heavy presence. As it does each mini-season, the FWC opens what it calls its Lobster Information Booth at mile marker 106 bayside, at Shell World, so visitors can stop in and learn the rules, how to measure a lobster and the like. Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. today through Tuesday. There are several important rules, including:In the Keys, it is illegal to possess more than six lobster per diver per day, possess egg-bearing female lobsters, possess undersized lobster and to make multiple trips in one day. A special lobster stamp must be added to your saltwater fishing license. They can be bought at most baitand-tackle shops, or Monroe County Tax Collectors Office branches. For many more specifics the Keys mini-season is far more regulated than anywhere else in the state, especially due to our status as the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary go to www.myfwc.com.

Staff at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon says that on May 28, Mack swam into the Marathon hospitals bayside boat basin tangled in fishing line.

Walker opened the door, let them in and they found an orange pill bottle with nine small plastic bags of crack cocaine inside, agency spokewoman Becky Herrin said.She said the cocaine weighed 5.6 grams. They also seized $667 in cash, presumed to be the proceeds of drug sales. Walker was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell.

children, Lanier began having trouble as he surfaced from his dive. One of the dive mates who with the group said Lanier began having trouble while at the surface.Herrin said the dive mate helped get Lanier aboard the dive boat. At that point, he lost consciousness and stopped breathing so she started cardiopulmonary resuscitation.The U.S. Coast Guard responded to distress calls and brought Lanier in to Marina Avenue in Key Largo. Paramedics transported Lanier to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of his death. Since its scuttling, at least seven other people have died at the Spiegel Grove or after diving it including an incident in 2007, when three New Jersey divers died inside the ship doing a penetration dive. Autopsies will be performed on Marshall and Lanier to determine the causes of their deaths. Their deaths bring to eight the number of snorkelers and scuba divers who have died in the Keys this year. Those were not the only one-the-water emergencies this week. On Friday, the U.S. Coast Guard and local agencies responded to a boat collision in the Dry Tortugas, around 70 miles west of Key West. The Guard says it received an Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) alert around 2 a.m. from a fishing vessel. The Guard dispatched a search plane and a helicopter from Miami and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Guard sent boat crews to the GPS location.The FWC found a partially submerged fishing boat and another damaged fishing vessel. Two people were reported to be in the water after the crash. One person was pulled to safety by a good Samaritan. He was not wearing a life jacket and was reported to have no medical concerns.The Guard said Friday afternoon it was still looking for the other person. Keys accountant Peter Rosasco will move forward with redeveloping Florida Keys Country Club after receiving final unanimous approval from the Marathon City Council on Tuesday. Rosasco has been working with Robert Belcaster, chairman of the clubs board of directors, for the past five years to acquire the club. Plans include a renovated 18-hole golf course, hotel with 57 single rooms and 19 two-bedroom suites, a swimming pool and a restaurant. There will also be meeting space, and a pro shop for golf and tennis players (the resort has courts). Bill Ehrhorn, owner of the Marathon Jet Center and General Aviation at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, said while the purchase could be good for the city, he told the council the golf course should remain accessible to the public. The Marathon Jet Center and General Aviation provide services and goods, such as fuel, to tourists flying into the airport. It is going to be a good thing if its going to be a tourist attraction and not just built for a small group of people, Ehrhorn said. We need to get behind this hotel resort and make sure the last significant piece of land in Marathon is not being blocked out by the public. Mayor Dick Ramsay agrees. We cant jump in the middle of private business, Ramsay said, however, the presentation was that this is a major asset to the Marathon community and most of that in my mind was making this available to the public. Belcaster said the club is down to 50 members and needs to attract more players to financially survive.He maintains the course has had public access through a players card membership. The membership is open to the public and costs $200 annually. Greens fees for members are $65 in the winter and $40 during the summer.Its public in the sense people can purchase a players club card, Belcaster said. Once its a resort, I believe theres going to be a daily concept fee. Rosasco agrees, saying he will continue the players card program as is once he acquires the club. The clubs tennis courts operate in a similar manner, where the public can pay an annual membership fee, but for unlimited access with no further fees to play. The Key West Golf Club is the closest 18-hole golf course to Marathon; its around 50 miles away. The city of Key Colony Beach runs a par-3 course thats open to the public. The proposed hotel pool will be restricted to guests.Florida Keys Country Club is owned by its members and Rosasco will have to buy them out to acquire the property. Rosasco and Belcaster would not say what the cost will be but Rosasco said he plans to close by Aug. 30.Club principals promise accessCity Council approves plan for developmentBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.com Saturday, July 26, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com DONT FORGET!

Come visit our online photo galleries atwww.Keys InfoNet.comKeys waters prove deadlyFrom Water, 1A six, Wardlow said. Fire Chief David Fraga calls the move to a permanent, city-run service a game changer. Its huge, Fraga said. Huge for the city, huge for the Fire Department. This is going to be a win-win. Fraga says the current contracted ambulance provider, Care/American, responds to about 5,000 calls for service each year, with about 4,000 of those resulting in transport to a medical facility. The response time is two to three minutes. The city hadnt been paying Care/American. Instead, the company had hoped to make its money off billing the people it transports, which apparently hasnt been happening. Thats why Care/American decided to pull out. There are 70 Key West firefighters who are EMTs; 15 of them are paramedics. The 15 additional hires will be cross-trained EMTs. Wardlow said hes satisfied with the plan, though he would have liked to see the new service be phased in over two or three years. But with the plans [the Fire Department] showed us, I think theyll be ready for it, he said. Its going to be a great help for the city of Key West, and we wont have to go look for bids every two or three years. Wardlow is also optimistic that receiving payment for services will go more smoothly than it has for Care/American. Were hoping for a good collection rate, he said. They are predicting a 60 to 85 percent collection rate; [the current company] runs between 35 and 40 percent. The Fire Department is going to have a professional collection agency, and they should do a better job of collecting those payments. Care/Americans contract runs through March 31, 2015, and the Key West Fire Department will begin running the ambulance services the following day. The city and the department are still researching new and used vehicles, as well as looking at lease options. The Fire Departments budget for FY 2014 is $7.35 million; expectations to bring the ambulance service in-house would push annual appropriations to nearly $9 million.Change for city is hugeFrom Key West, 1AMARATHON Keynoter photo by WILLIAM AXFORDThis is the pro shop at Florida Keys Country Club.

The Marathon City Council heard Tuesday night that when it comes to municipal revenue not generated by property taxes, the city is on pretty firm footing. Separate from the general fund for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1 is an estimated $9,893,532 in total non-tax revenue. The biggest contributor for the infrastructure fund will be a discretionary sales surtax, which will contribute $2,685,377, up $218,520 from in the current year. Other significant streams of revenue for capital infrastructure include Monroe County Tourist Develop ment Council grants for Oceanfront Park, for which Marathon will receive $150,000 for Phase 4 and $45,900 for Phase 5. A $64,000 grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection for a trail along Coco Plum Drive and a $100,000 grant from the state Department of Transportation for a bike path near Florida Keys Marathon Airport round out the rest of the sources. Expenses will include a new ambulance for $110,000, a new Code Compliance vehicle for $15,000 and $123,000 in fire and emergency medical services equipment. The Marathon Community Park will receive eight new speakers for the band shell area at $12,000 total.For the Marina Enterprise Fund coming from the City of Marathon Marina, revenue from laundry machines, storage units, moorings and seawall dockage will increase, setting the operating revenue at $759,000, a $90,150 increase over the current budget. Expenditures for the marina fund will be $727,558, up $64,708 from last year.For the stormwater utility fund, personnel costs will lower but materials, supplies and services will increase. Overall, the city is budgeting $9,733,039 for stormwater infrastructure for 2014-15. The presentation at Tuesdays council meeting was preliminary and funding may shift before the City Council finalized the budget in September.

Photos courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYWhen U.S. Navy sailors in Key West got some time off in 1940, theyd often hit the citys bars. But if the Navy Shore Patrol (the Navys police) found that perhaps youve imbibed too much, there was no way you were being allowed to stay in the bar.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALWelcome, buggers; enjoy but be safeLETTERS TO THE EDITORMore limits for mini-seasonThis coming weeks lobster miniseason is not mini-season; its lobstermobster season. Multiple trips out with multiple limits reached are the norm with many out-of-towners (and a few locals) that come to the Keys. Poaching prior to season is quite evident already. Hey, heres a solution. Allow lobstering from sun-up to noon. All boats must pull anchor by noon and be in motion toward shore. If you cant get your limit in five hours, too bad. Almost everyone on the water in the afternoon is going for their second or third limit. Doesnt the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission call this sport season? Whats so sporting about using scuba tanks? Free-diving is sporting, especially in the gulf. Ban scuba use for mini-season. Abalone diving in cold, rough, murky Northern California is free-diving only. Thats sporting.So fishing licenses for out-of-state visitors cost more than resident licenses. Makes sense, but lobster stamps are the same for residents and mobsters. Why?Raise the lobster tag fee to $20 for out-of-staters or even out-of-Monroe County people. For example, if you live in Broward and dive in Broward, if you want to dive in the Keys, pay more to do so. Hey, make mini-season a separate license fee, and use all that money to add 50 or more patrol boats. Use private boats with uniformed officers. Fantasy Fest is nothing compared to the law-breaking that goes on during mini-season. It also makes sense to have punch tags for mini-season lobster, like California does for abalone. Punch your tag for every lobster brought on board. You have 12 punch holes for each license holder. If you are stopped without punching, you forfeit your catch and license, and have your boat impounded for 90 days, in addition to fines. Why not have a maximum boat limit six per diver and 24 maximum per boat no matter how many divers are on board. Many mobsters load the boat with non-divers (with gear and licenses) and plunder multiple limits. Tom Casey MarathonGUEST COLUMNFor the most part, unless youre a business owner reaping the significant financial benefits, the annual two-day lobster mini-season, which is this Wednesday and Thursday, isnt the most welcome time of the year for many residents. The Keys population around 71,000 people spikes with an estimated 30,000 visitors, all seeking to bring in their daily limit of six lobster per person. U.S. 1 becomes jammed with autos trailering boats, the stores fill as those visitors get provisions, and the open water close to shore on both the oceanside and bayside seems like a marina boats as far as the eye can see, Many of those people are visitors who make a oneor two-week vacation out of it before their children return to school. But it is a financial boon to many, there is no doubt about it. The gas stations, the bait-and-tackle shops, the lodgings, the marinas, the restaurants all get a share of the visitors money. So for the residents, thats a big plus. Long after the lobster hunters leave, that money is still being spread locally.But of course there is a dark side to mini-season other than the inconvenience to the locals, and thats what can only be called disorganized chaos out on the water.Often the adventure and excitement of hunting lobster can, frankly, cause some people to lose their minds and they forget common courtesy, especially nautical courtesy. Some people will get to a good lobster hole and claim it as theirs, although thats a ridiculous notion because no one owns the ocean or bay. But fights often break out because of it sometimes guns are even drawn.Then there are folks who simply are not physically ready to scuba or snorkel, yet they do all in the name of catching a great dinner. The past several years, the Keys (fortunately) did not see any deaths related to mini-season. But from 2005 to 2009, 12 divers died here in incidents directly related to mini-season. We plead with our visitors: If you or someone in your party isnt prepared for the hunt, dont let them in no matter how much they plead. Let them enjoy the show from the vessel. The lobster, even if caught by someones elses hand, will still taste pretty fabulous. And always remember: Respect our resources. Long after you return home, they need to prosper.As it does each mini-season, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission opens what it calls its Lobster Information Booth at mile marker 106 bayside, at Shell World, so visitors can stop in and learn the rules, how to measure a lobster and the like. Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. today through Tuesday.Bahia Honda State Park at mile marker 36.8 is hosting its third annual Sport Lobster Season Mini-Event on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the parks marina so you can get information about lobstering, fishing, diving and boating. A lobster touch tank will be provided by the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Find out how to properly measure a lobster and have your lobster questions answered by biologists. An information booth and free vessel safety checks will be provided by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Get a hot dog, chips and a cold soda for $5. Regular entrance fees apply; there are no additional charges for event activities. Enjoy yourselves out there. Dont let irresponsibility take over so we can all remain safe.Housing panel floatedThe Marathon City Council plans to create an advisory committee to find ways to possibly address the ongoing need for workforce and other affordable housing, the board informally decided Tuesday.Speaking at Tuesdays council meeting, city Planning Commissioner Dan Zieg, who is running for a seat on the council this fall, suggested the idea. When he announced his campaign a few months ago, affording housing was his main platform.Marathon is going through something of a small building boom, with a 125room Hyatt and a 95-room Courtyard by Marriott under construction. A 108-unit hotel at a former Ramada site is also planned.All will have dozens of jobs to fill front desk, landscaping, food and drink servers, maid service and maintenance, among them. The problem is where to house them; some big Marathon stores, such as Kmart and Publix, bus much of their staffs in from the mainland.City Councilman John Bartus agrees a committee could help define the specifics of the housing issue.Here in the Middle [Keys], the local workforce, there seems to be an aching need here, Bartus said. I would hope members of the committee would be involved in the housing industry and real estate people who are aware of the problem and can come up with some solutions to the problem.In other action Tuesday, the council:Approved a conditionaluse permit and development agreement for JoJos of the Florida Keys and Nomad Outfitters on Grassy Key near mile marker 59.The former dive bar and adjacent bait-and-tackle shop is slated to become 14 singlefamily homes, with nine of them built along the Atlantic Ocean and the other six built in a semi-circle closer to U.S. 1.Florida Keys Marathon Airport Director Don DeGraw and Mayor Dick Ramsay spoke about ongoing plans for a U.S. Customs and Border Protection office at the airfields terminal. DeGraw said one fulltime customs agent might work Saturdays through Tuesdays, clearing travelers from the Caribbean and other islands outside of the Keys. Ramsay said the city plans to make the customs office boater-friendly, as well. If the agent is unable to be at a marina, Ramsay said Monroe County Sheriffs Office can help until the agent can come and clear travelers. Its going to be an asset to the Keys and this community, Ramsay said.MARATHONCity specifies non-tax revenueMARATHON By WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.com Want a federal contract? Think long, hardRecently The Florida Current reported that the projected substantial budget surplus in Florida has enabled spending increases in several areas, including transportation. Significantly, spending for transportation projects involves federal dollars more often than not, in addition to state funds. The federal involvement (and burden) that those federal dollars carry will vary, but all have in common at least one thing: Many strings are or will be attached and the administrative burden will be not only significant, but critically important. In addition to transportation spending, a glance through the Monroe County State and Federal Legislative Agenda and Briefing Book 2014 identifies several upcoming programs and many possibilities that will involve federal dollars in Monroe County.Virtually any direction one turns in the county, some federal hand is involved in everything we see. Most frequently, that hand is financial. Any federal funds involved will be spent either directly through the federal acquisition process or indirectly through the state and other projects and programs in which the federal government participates financially. However it is done, if any federal funds are involved, federal strings (and a degree of oversight) certainly will be attached.Given that according to CNN Money, the federal government spends 14 percent of its total budget annually on contracting, it is difficult for prudent businesses to overlook such a large potential customer. Thus it is for contractors and suppliers in South Florida generally and in the Keys in particular. Our business is not only about fishing, tourists and sunburn. It is also about supporting Naval Air Station Key West, the U.S. Coast Guard and various Department of Homeland Security facilities across our area. Besides those direct federal opportunities, there are many indirect opportunities such as the transportation example above (if one does not think the federal influence is pervasive, one need only ask almost any charter captain about the closure of the reef by the federal government last year. There certainly is good business out there for those willing to do it, but one must approach that business with awareness that there are many potential risks beyond those associated with any similar commercial contract. Consider that the federal acquisition regulation is lengthy, and every agency and many subdivisions of agencies have applied additional requirements beyond those of that regulation. Even innocent violations can produce potentially catastrophic monetary results and possible criminal concerns. For example, a contractor or subcontractor making routine repairs at a federal facility should know and be able to document the (domestic) origin of every piece of hardware it uses in performing that work. Note that that also applies under any federally assisted contract such as, say, a contract resulting from or under a grant associated with historic preservation.If, as commonly happens, a federal inspector finds use of a single Chinese fastener, unless a contractor can document that every other fastener is of domestic origin, the entirety of the work will have to be demolished and rebuilt at contractor expense (and all within contract time frames). And if an interim or other invoice on the job had been presented or paid, there is strong potential for a False Claims Act suit (civil and/or criminal) against the contractor.Thus, a word to the wise: Look carefully before leaping into work directly or indirectly involving federal funds.J.

It was hosted by the Key West Chamber of Commerce at the Casa Marina Resort. The nonpartisan election is Aug. 26. If no one receives 50 percent plus 1 vote, the top two vote-getters would be in a Nov. 4 runoff.Save on backto-school goodsA sales-tax holiday on back-to-school goods returns Aug. 1, 2 and 3, meaning the 7.5 percent tax wont be charged for certain goods that weekend. The exemption for some clothing has been increased to $100 or less per item (up from $75 or less per item in 2013). The exemption for personal computers and certain computer-related accessories will be on the first $750 of the sales price. Retailers say that will expand the list of taxexempt items, and they expect an average increase of at least 30 percent in store traffic over the weekend because of the tax holiday, says the Florida Retail Federation. In all, Florida residents are expected to save at least $40 million over the threeday holiday, which was passed unanimously by the 2014 Florida Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott, the federation says. The term personal computer includes any electronic book reader, laptop, desktop, handheld, tablet or tower computer.

Column, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment KEY LARGOReef nurseries need diversKey Largos worldrenowned nonprofit Coral Restoration Foundation continues its unprecedented hands-on restoration of Florida Keys coral reefs, and divers seeking a meaningful underwater experience are encouraged to volunteer to help. Lay people can join marine scientists in educational workshops to learn about coral health, corals function in marine ecosystems, environmental impacts on coral reefs and ways to protect this essential resource in the Florida Keys. Afterward, divers embark on dives to put their newly learned skills to task. These educational dive trips are part of the foundations volunteer arm. Foundation founder and President Ken Nedimyer, a former tropical-fish collector and live-rock aquaculture farmer, recognized the need for coral cultivation after seeing the organisms gradual decline. Since 2000, CRFs goal has been to reestablish sexually mature coral colonies that can successfully reproduce and repopulate the reefsElkhorn and staghorn corals in particular are two reef-building species with the best chance to proliferate into new habitats. Both are on the Endanger Species List.Upper Keys dive operators offer trips where divers can accompany marine scientists to coral restoration sites and see firsthand the outplanting of corals as well as maintenance in the offshore coral nursery, a one-acre underwater plat that houses staghorn and elkhorn.For upcoming dive programs, visit www.coral restoration.org The Coral Restoration Foundation has five offshore coral nurseries along the Keys, strategically placed near existing coral reefs. They span from a new nursery off North Key Largo at Carysfort Reef to Key West, where a recently expanded southernmost coral nursery now contains 22 prefabricated PVC tubing trees holding staghorn and elkhorn to be out-planted in the fall.Nursery corals are started from knuckle-size clippings, then hung from coral trees that each can hold up to 100 coral fragments. The fragments grow to 30 or 40 centimeters over the course of nine to 12 months before being outplanted to reef systems.After a year on the reef, the corals grow several inches tall with multiple branches. In five years, they are strong, independent structures serving as habitat for a variety of tropical fish.During working nursery dives, volunteers help gather, prune, clean, tag and prepare corals for planting. During a second dive at a restoration site they affix the clippings, adhering the cultivated corals to the reef using hand tools and underwater epoxy.Elkhorn, staghorn need replanting and maintenancePhotos by TIM GROLLIMUNDPlanting and maintaining coral nurseries isnt unlike regular land-based nurseries except theyre underwater and used to save endangered coral species. Does it float? Enter the regattaTrashy items like PVC pipe, buckets, pool noodles, plastic wrap, lawn furniture or cardboard can be bound together as hulls during Key Largos Anything That Floats regatta race set for Aug. 16.On the third Saturday of August each year, organizers of the wacky race task resourceful crews of two, four or more people to reuse, recycle and regenerate floatable items found around the house to construct their boats.Boat builders need to bind together their vessels with all-purpose duct tape, plastic wrap or other sticky substances long enough to hold team members inside during the half-mile dash through a buoyed course set in Blackwater Sound from Key Largos Caribbean Club to Sundowners and back. Teams can employ oars, paddles or even hoist old Tshirts as sails to propel their vessel. However, entries can be disqualified for incorporating offenders including motors, foam, floats, rafts or pool toys. A captains party is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 15 at Seor Frijoles, mile marker 103.9 bayside. Aug. 16 is race day, with team check-in beginning at 2 p.m. at Senor Frijoles. Race events begin at 3 p.m., and boats depart from the waterfront dock at the adjacent Sundowners Restaurant. The offbeat challenge is free to enter and to watch. Prizes are awarded in categories such as bestcostumed crew and most creative vessel.

Then lobster are off limits until the eight-month regular season starts Aug. 6. Tildens is rewarding bug hunters for their lobster catches but only if they also harvest at least one invasive lionfish. The poisonous Pacific species is proliferating and considered a threat to Keys coral reefs since they have no natural predators.The tournament benefits Marathon resident Cathy McKoy, a longtime resident whos been diagnosed with bone cancer. Because of that, our vendors have been extremely generous, Tildens owner Wendy Hall said.She is responding to her treatment and were really hoping her [upcoming] surgery is successful, Hall said. Hall said there are $7,000 to $10,000 worth of giveaways like dive gear, spear guns and cameras, while local hotels and restaurants have also contributed gift certificates to the cause.Fifty percent of all $30 entry fees, and 100 percent of raffle proceeds from the tournament, will be donated to McKoy to help her cover medical expenses. The entry fee buys participants a hat and one raffle ticket and the tournament is open to the public.First-, secondand thirdplace finishers receive prizes in the mens, womens and kids categories. Theres also a grand prize for the 12 heaviest lobster and most lionfish. To find out more specifics, call 743-7255, send an e-mail to info@tildens scubacenter.com or visit Tildens Scuba Center at 4650 Overseas Highway in Marathon.

The team ended the tournament with 496.75 points, providing Ruckus the edge to capture the top $25,000 prize.We had a lot of fun and are doing things that a lot of people wish they could do, said Eng of Terra Verde, Fla. But its probably not as fun as winning a big Powerball. Also aboard Engs 61foot Viking were Patrick Walsh of Terra Verde and Scott Dutton of Islamorada. Ruckus was captained by Kenny Hyatt of Tampa, with Paul Murdoch as mate. Walsh caught a 48.75pound dolphin, the tournaments largest mahi-mahi. Second place in the billfish division went to the OCD, captained by Sean Leu of Miami. Team member John Harris of Naples released a white marlin on the final fishing day to score 400 points.KEY WEST FISHINGThe winners on the Ruckus receive their honors from tournament Chairman Tim Greene (right).

How ever, there are times when a return isnt possible and now youre stuck with something you dont want. Here are a few tips to help you avoid buyers remorse in the future.Shop with purposeShopping is fun pastime but you need to recognize when youre just in the mood to purchase something new or whether you really do need new things for your wardrobe.If you catch yourself in the shopping-just-to-shop mood, make note of it and recognize that today isnt the day to make an expensive purchase. Instead, make a list of the items your wardrobe lacks and clothing and accessories that need to be replaced. When you know what you need, you can go shopping with purpose.Wait a dayIf you are unsure about an item, give yourself a day or two to think about it. You can put the item on hold or leave it in your online shopping cart. If you are still thinking about it the next day, then buy it.But youd be surprised how often you will just forget about the item by the next day. This is especially important when making a more expensive purchase.Dont splurgeBefore splurging on a big purchase, ask yourself a few questions.How often will I use this?Buying special-occasion pieces is OK once in a while, buy truly expensive items should be worn often. If you are going to use the item daily or even several times a week, then it isnt a bad purchase.Is it trendy or classic? Trendy pieces go out of style and might not have the shelf life that an investment piece deserves. Instead, purchase the item in a cheaper brand and save your investments for classic pieces you will wear often and well into the future.Will I still love it a year from now? In fashion, newly covetable items emerge each season, so splurging on the it bag of the month may have you regretting that decision after only a few short months of wear. If youll still love the item a year from now, then you know youre making the right decision to purchase it.Is this an impulse buy? Before buying a house or a car, you save money and do research. Saving and researching before purchasing a big item is the best way to shop guilt-free. You can also make a list of pros and cons to help you sort through whether this investment piece is really for you.Can I afford it?If youre buying something that is as much as your mortgage payment, then it needs some consideration and should be taken seriously. Impulse purchases on expensive items can impact your financial future and well-being and should not be purchased without thoughtful consideration.Shopping makes us feel good. Purchasing a new or coveted item triggers the release of brain chemicals that gives us shopping high. Understanding this can help you make sense of shopping impulses, avoid buyers remorse and lower your risk for overspending. Now, go ahead and shop responsibly.

Talk about impulse buying if you can afford this $2.9 million baby, buyers remorse probably isnt a problem. But for many of us, it can be. Leah Maki ConchStyleProducts distill essence of vodkaWeve had cream-flavored vodka, candy-flavored vodka, even breakfast cerealflavored vodka. Now, producers are betting on something different, vodka that tastes like ... vodka. From an Icelandic vodka made from glacier spring water to a Colorado potato vodka made from freshly picked home-grown spuds, the latest vogue in vodka is more craft than kitsch. Vodka distilleries are saying, Listen, lets get back to our basics. Lets make these products and represent ourselves in a way that holds true to mixing a very clean cocktail, says Jeff Leanheart, beverage director of the Smith Lincoln Center in New York City. Flavored vodkas have been huge in recent years bubble-gum flavored martini, anyone? and Leanheart doesnt expect them to disappear. Theres obviously a niche to any item. But theres a serious spirit emerging in new premium vodkas that mirrors the food world emphasis on fresh, local and seasonal products. Take Reyka, a new vodka from Iceland that in addition to being made with glacier water is filtered over Icelandic lava rocks.The result is a spirit with a beautiful mouth feel that shows beautifully in simple drinks. It can be drunk almost naked, if you will, says Charlotte Voisey, well-known mixologist and global ambassador for William Grant & Sons, the distillery that makes Reyka. (Other popular Grant brands include Hendricks gin and Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey.)Water is a key part of making vodka since the point is to produce a pure spirit, says Leanheart. How many times the spirit is distilled depends on the producers philosophy. Karlssons Gold is distilled just once and also unfiltered to preserve the taste of the virgin potatoes its made with, while Purity clocks in at 34 distillations. Many vodkas are distilled from wheat, but by no means all. The popular Titos Handmade Vodka, which hails from Texas, is made from corn; there are vodkas made from grapes such as Ciroc, as well as vodkas that spring from a host of other ingredients, including Fair Quinoa vodka, which also is fair trade certified. In Basalt, Colo., Woody Creek Distillers puts a modern twist on tradition. The distillery, started by former defense industry engineers Pat Scanlan and Mark Kleckner, uses potatoes grown from the 30-acre farm Scanlan owns with his wife near Aspen. And these potatoes arent left to sit in cellars for months at a time. Scanlan and Kleckner take them right from the ground to the distillers on the same day. Its back-breaking work, but they say its well worth it. Being able to control every aspect of the production is how were able to control and ensure the highest quality, Kleckner said. Were not second in line waiting on potatoes. Were doing that farming to make sure we have absolutely the freshest potatoes for the production of the vodka. The buck all stops with us and we make sure everything is just right.

Cook up a color-happy kitchenKitchens in traditional and vintage homes often are dressed in conservative garb: neutral hues, stainless steel, white-on-white or beige-on-beige. Historically, however, kitchens were actually pretty peppy, according to Deborah Baldwin, editor of This Old House magazine. Pastel greens, blues, creams and peaches reigned until the early 1930s, when casual, built-in eating areas were painted Kelly green, red and even black, she says. We have readers who are introducing brightly colored cabinets and appliances in tomato, pumpkin and daisy, she adds. At this springs Archi tectural Digest Home Design Show in New York, manufacturers were showing lots of vibrantly hued kitchen equipment.Bertazzonis Arancio range came in orange, burgundy and yellow. Big Chill displayed a wall full of paint-box hues including jadite (a milky green), cherry and pink. AGAs Signature line of beefy, professional-grade ranges comes in intriguing colors like aubergine, duck-egg blue, heather, pistachio, claret and British racing green.Fans of metallics might go for Blue Stars dramatic collection of ranges, wall ovens and hoods in copper, gold and a chocolate-y ginger, as well as several hundred other colors and finishes. Kitchens of any vintage can look great with colorful walls. Pumpkin, cobalt and deep Prussian blue enhance all kinds of woods, whether youre working with 19th Century pine, Craftsman-era oak or mid-century walnut.Or consider the ceiling. In a small galley kitchen, bold color on the ceiling creates a jewel box effect. Deep hues like eggplant, navy, magenta or carmine compliment white cabinetry in a large kitchen, and look great in both natural and artificial light. New York designer Gideon Mendelson applied a pea-green gingham canvas cloth to the ceiling of a country house kitchen, and painted the island in a similar shade. With a collection of vintage baskets displayed along the tops of snowy wood cabinetry, the vibe is relaxed, fresh and contemporary. Meg Caswell, a designer and host on HGTVs Great Rooms, loves to add color to kitchens. She used a backsplash of crisp, blue and green fused-glass tiles as a counterpoint to a rustic, Old Worldstyle metal and wood kitchen island, glossy black cabinetry and citrine wallpaper in an Art Deco-era home. In another home, she mixed sleek tealand-white glass with farmhouse blue cabinets.Baldwin, of This Old House, advises painting upper and base cabinets different colors, or painting an island or hutch in a contrasting shade.This helps reinforce their freestanding furniture look, which harks back to 18th and 19th Century kitchens, she says.Painting the floor either one color or in a pattern like checkerboard can reinforce the vintage look too, she notes. Options include graphic designs or stencils, or illustrated rug motifs. Better Homes & Gardens website has lots of ideas.If youre in a rental with limited decorating options, go for color accents like Fiesta ware, rag rugs, a couple of snazzy stools, and counter appliances in candy hues.Why be neutral when it can be its own star?By KIM COOKAssociated PressDECORATING Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this kitchen, the walls were painted red, then a clear glass cover was added to create a chic, vibrant backsplash. Elements like this are great ways to inject color into a kitchen that may have more traditional bones. Saturday, July 26, 2014 3B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Connie M.

And if youve got a more sophisticated setup or have retained your old VCR machine, you may well have a few more (gaming consoles, light dimmers, air-conditioning units, etc.).Remotes tend to be annoyingly similar in size, shape and color, and have a pesky way of slipping between couch cushions, walking to various parts of the house, getting chewed by the dog or just poof vanishing.To help restore order, cable companies and professional organizers offer some suggestions:Find a containerCaddies made for remote controls come in a huge range of prices and styles.There are clear Acrylic organizing cubes (US Acrylic), non-skid rubber with voluptuous curves in impossible-tomiss primary colors (J-Me Cozy Remote Control Tidy), faux-leather organizers in staid brown and black that rotate for convenience (Cosmos) and wooden organizing boxes with NFL team logos.For those loathe to park one more thing on an overworked coffee table, some caddies hang saddle-bag style over a chair or sofa armrest (Ikea).Whatever you get, make sure its not the type of thing that will get tipped over by a stretching cat. Trays or low baskets are perfect, and drawers are terrific if you have a grabby toddler. Oh, and definitely dont store it beside the TV, said Liz Jenkins, a professional organizer in Franklin, Tenn. As with everything in your house, you should store it closest to where youll be using it. So it really has to have a home near your couch or chair.Kevin Hall of Clutter No More Inc. in San Diego says keeping track of remotes is a chronic problem. Our top idea is putting a strip of Velcro on the back of a clipboard, then on the back of each remote, and keep the board by where you usually sit, he said. He also suggests putting color-coordinated dots on each remote and its corresponding device, and urges clients to keep any directions and customer numbers in a clear plastic sleeve in the room where they watch TV.StreamlineCan you retire some of these remotes? When it comes to organizing anything, whether its shoes or china or remotes, you need to evaluate how many things you have and how many you really need. Are you using all of these machines? If not, the remotes dont all need to be there, Jenkins said.Go universalIf arranging your collection of black and gray remotes in a monotone hightech bouquet doesnt appeal, a well-chosen universal remote can narrow it down to one. Universal remotes are designed to work with all your technological gizmos, and range in price from around $10 to several hundred dollars. When you have a big pile of remotes, my top advice is to get a universal remote and find a 12-year-old to program it, said Jenkins.Hall cautions, however, that programming a universal remote often just leads to more frustration. Thats why we go to the clipboard. If the person is a techie, a universal remote would work. For most people though, thats too much technology to deal with.Get smart (phone)For the technologically savvy, new apps have been created to turn your smart phone into a remote. Popular apps include Dijit, Roomie, Re, iRule, Zsmart, Command fusion and Openremote.In addition, many TV manufacturers and cable providers (including Sony, Comcast, Optimum and Verizon) have created their own apps, some voice-activated, to replace remotes. Comcast says its Xfinity TV Remote app has been downloaded 10 million times. Many of my clients have designated iPads or smart phones that function as a universal remote, Jenkins said.Get a new oneIf youve lost a remote, ask your cable provider to come to the rescue. Providers are accustomed to requests for additional remotes, and replacements are ubiquitous online and in stores.Back to futureTelevision existed years before remotes became commonplace. An old-fashioned TV with an actual channel button, if youre lucky enough to find one, bypasses the need for remotes by forcing you to get up, cross the room and change the channels. This is cumbersome and unpleasant, to be sure, but provides some exercise. If all else fails, theres always the option of going screen-free. Take a walk, read a book, have coffee with a friend.
