Hancock has been in the Keys since Saturday and is preparing for lobster mini-season. He spent Tuesday scouting different potential lobster holes.Lobster hunt well under wayThe two-day rush to dive for lobster launches today, having already created expected traffic slowdowns and a scarcity of motel rooms.Its been crazy, Under seas Inc. staffer Josephine Gruba said from the Big Pine Key dive shop. Its definitely busier than last year. Traffic on U.S. 1 into the Florida Keys was backed up beyond the county line at mile marker 115 on Saturday sometimes nearly reaching to Florida City, according to numerous motorist reports. Some visitors unaware of the mini-season mania expected a quiet late-July week but returned to the mainland when a motel room could not be found, a Key Largo business owner said.Were not completely sold out with some rooms available, but its just about all booked, Jeanine Basso, events director for the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerces Visitors Center, said Tuesday. Its been a steady flow. Staff at the Lobster Information Booth, staffed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, talked to more than 900 visitors from Saturday to early Monday, an FWC spokesman said. With Saturday apparently the day most lobster divers arrived, things quieted by Monday afternoon, said sanctuary outreach staffer Dan Mooney.

Following a 20-year career in the U.S. Coast Guard, from which he retired as commanding officer of Station Islamorada, he became part-owner of a Middle Keys marina. He was always around the water and apparently had a tight circle of friends.But now Zecca has a limited lifestyle, locked up in the Federal Detention Center in Miami, the same prison that has housed countless international drug-cartel leaders and, for 20 years, former Panama dictator Manuel Noriega.His day consists of several inmate counts and limited access to food, sundries, visitors and phone calls.On July 2, a federal judge in Key West sentenced him to 10 years after he admitted attempting to arrange the murder of Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. That brought to an end to his case, which involved a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation, a federal informant and, allegedly, more than one co-conspirator that were never revealed.Zecca has never said what his motive was Schmitt says he didnt know Zecca and speculation about it remains as strong today as it did when he was arrested in December 2012 while attempting to drive to get cash to pay the hit man, who was actually a DEA informant.Schmitt wanted Zecca to stand trial so the full story could come to light. Zecca refused to name names and that trial never materialized because of his guilty plea. According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Zeccas life now starts each weekday at 6 a.m. with breakfast and cleaning his cell. The cell the bureau wouldnt say how many cellmates Zecca has must be ready for daily inspection by 7:30 a.m. Half an hour later is the morning inmate head count. Lunch is served at 11 a.m. and at 3:45 p.m. the prison terminates all activities so inmates can return to their cells for a 4 p.m. head count. Dinner is served at 4:30 p.m. and, once again, activities are terminated by 9:30 so inmates can return to their cells for the night and beMurder-for-hire principal cools in federal penBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCRIME AND PUNISHMENT ZECCAThousands get absentee ballotsThe Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office has sent out some 11,000 absentee ballots for the Aug. 26 primary election. That means with 50,629 registered voters in Monroe County as of Tuesday, absentee ballots likely will account for around 22 percent of ballots cast. Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin said absentee voters have until 7 p.m. the day of the primary to mail or turn them into one of the three Keys elections offices. She said theres some confusion about voting absentee. A lot of people feel absentees arent counted unless theyre needed. Theyre always counted and always needed, Griffin said. Absentees are not forwardable. If you moved and havent gotten your absentee yet, it probably came back. Give us a call. Of the voters in the county, 16,858 of them are registered Democrats and 18,578 are Republicans. The remaining 15,193 are either nonpartisan or members of other parties. Griffin said 4,949 of the absentee voters are registered as Republicans and 3,949 are Democrats. The remaining 2,182 are nonpartisan or affiliated with other parties. Republicans and Demo crats know absentee voters can affect elections. Historically, the Repub lican Party has pushed for absentee voting, said Deby Goodman, head of the Republican Party of Monroe County.

The county board, meeting Thursday, set a maximum property tax increase of 3 percent over rollback for the 2014-15 fiscal year. That rate for Truth in Millage notices likely will be reduced further at September budget hearings but legally cannot go higher. If unchanged, the countys total aggregate tax rate of 3.948 mills about $790 for a home with $200,000 of taxable assessed value would be 3 percent higher than the rollback rate.Thats the worst-case scenario, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said. The high-water mark, if you will.The rollback rate is the millage needed to raise the same property tax revenue, nearly $80 million, collected in the current year, after calculating increases in assessed value and new construction.Commissioners generally commended county department directors and elected officials for keeping their budgets close to current levels.But a request for an additional $563,000 from the county Health Department triggered outrage at sharply reduced state and federal money that once funded much of the agencys budget.Health Department Director Bob Eadie said his agency previously relied on Medicaid reimbursements from the departments medical clinic to help cover the budget. Medicaid fees were higher than the actual costs so the clinic served as a revenue source, he said. The governor said to get out of the Medicaid business, Eadie said.

The Marathon City Council may put the kibosh on a proposed bridge that would cross a canal in Oceanfront Park behind City Hall. At an estimated cost of $85,000, Mayor Dick Ramsay likened it to the dismantled bridge leading to Boot Key, calling it a bridge to nowhere. The bridge would cross a canal from where kayak docks are to an upland wooded site that has no improvements. Funding for the bridge was approved by the citys previous community services director, Deborah London. Id like to see if we could readjust those dollars and put them into something more progressive, Ramsay said. We could improve other parks or beaches. Coco Plum [Beach] needs substantial money to sustain people there. Ramsay suggested the possibility of installing a boat ramp near the kayak launch rather than a bridge. A putting green was in the plans for the 10-acre park, between 98th and 99th streets. Picnic tables with shade, a walking path and lookout points near the ocean are featured. The next phase of the park are the bridge to which Ramsay objects and a boardwalk, costing a total of $91,800. The Monroe County Tourist Development Council would help with $45,900. The City Council is expected to discuss future development at the park at its next meeting on Aug. 12. Ramsay said a comprehensive reevaluation of the plans is needed and that projects should be monitored more closely. Its taxpayer money so I tend to be very conservative on spending, Ramsay said. We need to stop and look overall where we want to go in the future with this park.Iguana kills power in the Lower KeysBlame an iguana for a brief power outage Sunday afternoon that darkened 11,000 electric customers in the Lower Keys. The electrical fault within [Florida Keys Electric Cooperative] territory on July 27 was triggered by an iguana climbing on a generation bus within the Marathon Key electrical substation, said Julio Torrado, spokesman for Keys Energy Services, the Lower Keys utility. A generation bus is equipment that helps to balance load levels within electric grids. The iguana did not survive, Torrado noted.The subsequent fault resulted in an under-voltage event, which triggered a cascade of power outage within [Keys Energys] service area, he said. The 11-minute outage started at 4:03 p.m.Meanwhile, in the Upper Keys before dawn Tuesday, 16 homes on Adobe Casa Court in Tavernier lost power for about two hours when a transformer failed at 2:06 a.m. FKEC crews were dispatched and replaced a failed transformer. Power was restored at 4:34 a.m., said FKEC spokeswoman Nikki Dunn.

Peggy E. Brunner, 60, of Canton was with a small group taking a tour on the jet-powered craft, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report.Brunner was operating a 2014 Yamaha, the last of three vessels to go under the bridge, and struck the old bridge, an FWC account says.The other two PWC riders returned to find Brunner unconscious and unresponsive with head injuries. A nearby boater took Brunner to the Fiesta Key Marina on Long Key, where she was picked up by ambulance. She then was flown by helicopter to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. She later died of her injuries. Several FWC officers and the Monroe County Sheriffs Office responded to the crash scene near mile marker 71, FWC Investigator Raquel Daniels reported. It was the third boating death in Florida Keys waters this year.Raschein hosting meetings with DOTState Rep.

Walter Lloyd Perry, Jr., of Leesville, South Carolina, passed away at home July 22, 2014. Lloyd had been battling cancer and diabetes for several years prior to his passing. He is now with the Lord and his late wife, Norma Jean. Walter Lloyd Perry, Jr., was born in Eastport, FL, August 5, 1935, the second oldest of five siblings. He graduated high school in Key West before joining the U.S. Army in 1953. Lloyd received an honorable discharge after three years of service. Outside of the Army, Lloyd gravitated toward engineering and the ice business. He went on to work for Royal Palm Ice and Southern Service Company for over 50 years in locations throughout the country. Lloyd resided in the Keys for many years while working for Royal Palm Ice and starting a family. With a love for sports and a passion for coaching, Lloyd helped coach local youth football and baseball teams in his spare time. He also enjoyed playing golf when he wasnt on the clock. He is survived by daughter Brenda Perry McNalley and sons James Walter Perry, William David Perry (Kelly Carter), Michael Wayne Perry (Cheri); and step-kids Stuart Smith (Nicole), Sonny Smith (Diane), Donna Potts (Curtis) and Cheryl Beier. He is also the beloved grandfather of Michael, Steven, Daniel, Chelsey, Alyssa and Zachary; and great grandfather of McKenzee and Cameron.

Divers also apparently planned to stay busy before legal lobstering opened today through Thursday. There have been a ton of questions about spearfishing in general, Mooney said. Spearing lobster is illegal. Bill Moccia, a part-time resident of Lower Matecumbe Key for decades, stopped to make sure the laws essentially have not changed. The only notable addition is an expanded ban on diving in Laytons nearshore waters during mini-season and the first five days of regular lobster season (an exemption is made for waterfront property owners in the small city). Lobster diving is one of those historical things that weve always done, Moccia said. Were here so we have to take advantage of it. My son and daughter have done it all their lives. Randy Oertle of Tennessee traveled to go diving with the Moccias. This is the first time Ive made it down for lobster season, he said. Im looking forward to it. The whole South Florida thing gets me going. The FWC always sends additional marine officers to patrol the Florida Keys. This year, 10 extra FWC officers join the local officers, along with a lobster-sniffing dog. Thousands of bug hunters arriveFrom Lobster, 1ALikely budget to remain flatAgainst the recommendation of its director and finance chief, the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board has adopted a proposed fiscal year 2014-15 property tax rate aimed at raising revenue equal to the current year. The .4824 rate would raise the same $9.7 million in property tax revenue as the current years .5069 rate. The lower rate is due to a countywide uptick in property values. The .4824 property tax rate is equivalent to $48.24 for every $100,000 in taxable assessed property value. The owner of a $300,000 home in Monroe County would pay $144.72 in taxes to the district. Director Michael Doyle, Comptroller Bruce Holden and all five commissioners agreed that the rollback rate is their ultimate goal, but there was disagreement July 22 on the approach. Rollback is the tax rate necessary to raise the same amount of revenue as the current year.Doyle and Holden, as well as board Chairman Steve Smith and Commissioner Bill Shaw, felt there were too many uncertainties to adopt a flat rate so early in the process. The board wont finalize its budget until late September.According to Florida law, a government body cant raise a tax rate once its been voted on. It can be lowered, though.Shaw cited potentially large variables like the cost of the districts planned new Lower Keys headquarters on Big Coppitt Key, possible repairs to its existing Stock Island headquarters and the potential outbreak of the mosquito-borne virus chikungunya in the Keys. If we put in another $500,000 or so until our final budget meeting, wed be in a lot more prudent position. Were doing a lot of big things this year, Shaw said. If we dont need the money, Id be glad to vote for rollback at the final meeting. Smith said likewise, arguing the 3-2 vote was a kneejerk reaction. Our guys have to have something to work down from. If you adopt the rollback rate tonight, I will speak publicly that it was the wrong thing to do, he said.Commissioner Jack Bridges said he was comfortable enough with district finances to approve the .4824 rate. In particular, Bridges said that an expected beginning 2014-15 cash reserve of $4.7 million is more than the district requires.It was noted on several occasions during the meeting and a workshop immediately prior to it that the district had set minimum and maximum reserve levels of $2.5 million and $4.4 million, respectively.The only way in government to guarantee were not going to go above rollback right now is to keep it at rollback right now. I understand what [Holden] is saying about depleting contingencies, but its not all that likely that youre going to have a heart attack, your house is going to burn down and youll get pregnant all in one month, he said. Including taxes, grants and other revenue, the district expects to take in $10.51 million in fiscal year 2014-15. Total operating expenditures are $10.65 million, which leaves a $137,605 shortfall.In addition, the district is budgeting $1.41 million for capital projects ($1 million for Big Coppitt building). The total operating and capital budget is $12.1 million, a roughly $1.5 million shortfall.Doing so would leave the district with a projected $3.12 million in reserves at the end of 2014-15. Holden and Doyle said they would try to decrease the amount of reserves used by lowering day-to-day operating expenditures.At minimum, the income is $10.5 million, Doyle said. We want our operating expenditures to be at $10.5 million or below, so were not spending more than were bringing in. Thats going to take $137,605. The next Mosquito Control budget workshop is scheduled for 1 p.m. Aug. 18 at the districts College Road office on Stock Island. The boards regular monthly meeting is scheduled to begin immediately following the workshop.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL An 84-year-old Key Largo man was arrested Monday night on two felony counts of lewd behavior involving a victim under age 16.

Veterans help replant coralsA dozen wounded veterans were wrapping up several days of diving in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Tuesday to help transplant corals on a section of the reef set aside as a remembrance area for fallen American military personnel. The vets are joined by teens from two organizations to sow staghorn corals on a section of a patch reef permitted to Mote Marine Laboratory. Its better for us as veterans to have these kind of expeditions to give us a focus, said Billy Costello, a retired U.S. Army sergeant first class who lost his right leg during a bomb explosion while stationed in Afghanistan in 2011. In the process of doing this, were coming together as a team. Were building rapport with one another, he added. Were sharing these experiences and were getting things off our chests. Four of the eight youth divers are members of Gold Star Teen Adventures, an organization providing adventure camps for survivors of military personnel who died in the line of duty. The balance belong to SCUBAnauts International, a program that involves youngsters in the marine sciences.I like working with the vets because it reminds me that no matter what, you can keep going, said Mia Foisy, 14, a member of SCUBAnauts. It doesnt matter what happens, you can always take the next step.Mote has been involved in growing and transplanting threatened staghorn corals in the sanctuary for about eight years.Part of reef is set aside for remembranceLOWER KEYS Photo by JOE BERG Retired U.S. Army Sgt.

They beat their chests and try to fool the public, Rice said. They dont raise taxes but force [costs] to the local level and we have to cover the gap. Its unconscionable to keep saddling the taxpayers of Monroe County with increases of this magnitude, Rice said. Commissioner George Neugent contended the Health Departments local funding has increased 150 percent over the last seven years, adding. Everybody else is holding back and biting the bullet. Gastesi said state budget writers reacted to the economic downturn by slashing money for health departments. The state was in poor fiscal shape and we stepped in to make up the difference, he said. But economic improvements have not seen a restoration of health money, he said. The state process is so absurd that nobody up there knows about it anyway, said Commissioner Danny Kolhage, previously the county controller. The process is broken and we need to be smarter than this, Eadie said.Commissioners approved a tentative $1.2 million in local funding for the Health Department, reflecting a continuation of the current $939,000 funding level plus $226,000 to renew a successful vaccination program. That cut about $300,000 from the original request.The county is working on an overall budget of about $441 million, with other money coming from user fees, grants and local shares of state and federal taxes, among other sources. The tentative budget includes a 2 percent salary increase for the county workforce, to be split between cost-of-living hikes and merit raises. The final budget and tax rates will be set at formal hearings Sept. 3 in Key Largo, Sept. 8 in Marathon and Sept. 11 in Key West.Budget hearings are in SeptemberFrom County, 1A counted for a third time.If an inmate wants food or drink not offered by the prison, there is a limited list of items available for purchase.Bottled water costs 55 cents, Pepsi $2.40 and Tang $1.05; other beverages are on the list. For food, inmates could indulge in Ramen noodle soup (25 cents) or snacks such as barbecue potato chips ($1.60), candy bars (75 cents to $1) and other items. The most expensive are $4.15 for sugar-free wafers and $3.55 for cashews. There is also rice ($1.15 for instant), noodles ($1.05 macaroni and cheese), canned fish ($2.20 pink salmon) and beans ($2.50 black-bean flakes). Splurging in that area would cost an inmate $3.40 for canned chicken or $3.25 for canned chunk ham. There are assorted soaps, dental products, hair-care products, eye-care, products, reading glasses, stationary, shower shoes, medical products, hygiene products and religious items available for purchase. The most expensive? A pair of Nike or Adidas hightop sneakers for $59.95. The Prisons website says inmates are typically allowed four hours of visitation time a month. Thats an average of eight minutes per day, or one hour for every weekend.Its up to the warden to set visiting hours. A lot of times it depends on how many inmates are getting visits, said Chris Burke, a Bureau of Prisons spokesman.Visitors must be preapproved and are not permitted to wear provocative or revealing clothes. Conjugal visits arent allowed. In most cases, handshakes, hugs and kisses (in good taste) are allowed at the beginning and end of visits. Staff may limit contact for security reasons (to prevent people from trying to introduce contraband) and to keep the visiting area orderly, the Prisons website says. Burke said Zecca doesnt have an expected release date established, and its likely hell be transferred to serve out his term. One small favor the Bureau does do for inmates is typically house them no more than 500 miles from their release address to make it easier on family members to visit. As long as theyre in an appropriately secure facility, Burke said. Zecca could earn as many as 54 days per year off his sentence, assuming good behavior. That would erase 540 days (roughly 18 months) off his sentence. At sentencing, Zecca attorney William Aaron pointed to his clients 27year Coast Guard career and argued he receive between 87 and 108 months in prison. U.S. District Court Judge Jose Martinez gave the maximum sentence allowed. Zecca admitted hiring a hit man to shoot Schmitt to death on Dec. 21, 2012, in the back yard of Schmitts home after a Christmas party. Schmitt wasnt physically harmed, but did pose for a photo at the feds request to make it appear the murder was carried out. The hit man (informant) worked for Zecca at the Marathon Marina and Boatyard on 11th Street. He was involved in the DEA drug investigation, which still remains a mystery. The plot to murder Schmitt was revealed during that investigation, which Schmitt was not involved in.Life is sparse for ZeccaFrom Zecca, 1ACouple: Move case to higher courtLawyers for two Monroe County men who won the right to marry asked an appeals court Monday to move the case directly to Floridas Supreme Court. The constitutionality of Floridas laws barring samesex couples from marriage is an issue of great public importance that has a great effect on the proper administration of justice throughout the state, lawyers Bernadette Restivo and Elena Vigil-Farinas, who represent Key West bartenders Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, wrote to the Miamibased Third District Court of Appeal. There is a need to bring finality to this issue on a statewide basis so that clerks of court throughout the state have uniform guidance as to whether they must issue marriage licenses on an equal basis to otherwise qualified same-sex couples. According to the attorneys, a decision from the Supreme Court would also provide uniform direction and guidance to government, public and private entities throughout the state, including the judiciary, which make decisions on a daily basis with regard to the provision of benefits or rights to persons based in whole or in part on their marital status. The lawyers describe the case as an issue of great public importance that directly and profoundly affects same-sex couples throughout the state, as well as their children and other family members, by excluding them from a right the Supreme Court has declared to be of fundamental importance for all individuals. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, whose office has appealed the mens legal victory, has not commented on Mondays motion.On July 17, Monroe Chief Circuit Judge Luis Garcia declared Floridas 2008 gaymarriage ban unconstitutional, ruling against Bondi, whose office defended the ban. Huntsman and Jones have not been allowed to marry: Florida law mandates that an automatic stay pending appeal is triggered when a public official loses a court case.Were filing in the court of appeal, a motion, in laymans terms, to pass through the jurisdiction of the third District Court of Appeal and to send the case directly to the Florida Supreme Court, Restivo told the Miami Herald. Its going to certainly bring this case quicker to finality. Its going to apply this case, one way or another, to the entire state of Florida, once the Supreme Court rules on it. The Monroe County case mirrors one in Miami-Dade, in which Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel on Friday ordered that six same-sex couples also be allowed to marry.Preventing same-sex couples from marrying, Zabel said, serves only to hurt, to discriminate, to deprive samesex couples and their families of equal dignity, to label and treat them as second-class citizens, and to deem them unworthy of participation in one of the fundamental institutions of our society.The gay-marriage battle is being waged across the nation. Currently, gay marriage is legal in 19 states and Washington, D.C. A federal judge last week ruled Colorados same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. According to the group Freedom to Marry, LGBT advocates have won more than 20 times in federal, state and appellate courts since June 2013, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Edith Windsor, a lesbian widow, and threw out a key portion of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.The U.S. Supreme Court has not ruled on the constitutionality of state marriage bans.It is likely that the Monroe and Miami-Dade cases will be appealed together and that whatever decision is reached by the appeals court will affect both. Restivo said whichever side might lose at the Florida Supreme Court could then petition the United States Supreme Court to take the case.Attorney: Bondi hasnt responded to the petitionBy STEVE ROTHAUSsrothaus@MiamiHerald.comSAME-SEX MARRIAGE William Lee Jones and Aaron Huntsman want the state Supreme Court to expedite their case.Photo by BERT BUDDE

But most people dont know that one of the countrys favorite holiday destinations is under threat. Sea-level rise and climate change are already affecting South Florida. Fortunately, continued restoration efforts of the Florida Everglades will help impede these consequences. Last month, the National Research Council released a report. Progress Toward Restoring the Everglades. It illustrates the positive results of current restoration projects, but says that these efforts are not happening quickly enough and need to be hastened, especially to mitigate issues caused by rising sea levels. The Florida Everglades are considered one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet, home to many endangered species, including the Everglades snail kite and the elusive Florida panther.The water flowing through the Everglades also provides South Floridians drinking water. Essentially, the Everglades need to be restored not just because it provides important habitat for wildlife, but also because its restoration will protect the drinking water that makes southern Florida habitable.Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we give the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (known as CERP) all the support and funding it needs in order to save this integral environment. According to the report, since the restoration plan was authorized in 2000, only four of the 67 projects have been completed. Although CERP is expected to take several decades to complete, the plan is severely behind schedule, resulting in rapid habitat degradation and loss of diversity across the Everglades. CERP will provide the freshwater flows needed to restore the ecosystem and recharge our aquifer. As a consequence of delaying Everglades Restoration, South Florida is standing by as fresh-water supplies are increasingly threatened by salt water intrusion. As a Miami Beach resident, I clearly see how important the efforts of CERP are and how immediate action is needed. As most Miami Beach residents know, most side streets are often flooded even on sunny days, indicative of the rising sea levels. Thus, as residents of South Florida, we must fight for the funding that these projects desperately need. If we want to continue to call this vacationland our home, the restoration efforts of the Everglades must not only continue, but also be expedited in order to save this ecosystem and protect our freshwater drinking supply. Tyler Breault, intern Florida Audubon Miami Beach Our story about the New Jersey Turnpike Authority ordering Boardwalk Pizza in Tavernier to change its logo because the authority believes it infringes on its copyright drew lots of strong comment from our online readers. Among them:Yes, every time I drive past Boardwalk Pizza I get instantly confused: Hey, when did I cross into Jersey? Is this the turnpike? Come on already talk about a stupid lawsuit. Also, this place has the most authentic pizza in Florida great stuff and Im raised on New York pizza.Why does a company need to sue another company that is completely different then the other? I think this is just a money-making scheme. Now, if they were both selling pizza I could see the reasoning, but one is a foodbased business and one is a moneygrubbing turnpike authority that in reality should not be in business. Hey, New Jersey Turnpike Authority, do you receive any moneys from the federal government or New Jersey government? If so, I think you get enough of our money. I hope you lose and Boardwalk Pizza countersues for defamation and you have to pay them big bucks.Tell em to pound salt. Really? They just want to come down to the Keys.New Jersey claims its logo is wellknown. Fame and good will? LOL.Watch for it this has all of the makings for another late-night comedy Chris Christie joke.Frivolous at best.What a waste of time and tax dollars. Love this pizza place. One more reason I cant wait to move out of New Jersey.Great pizza and they serve Birch beer, a legendary New Jersey drink. I am sorry to say I was born in Paterson, N.J., but I was smart enough to move here. Tell these lawyers to get a life. First fix the places that still havent been fixed since Hurricane Sandy.Fugetaboutit.Im grateful that this pizza joint called attention to something that New Jersey does well. Thank, you Jersey Boardwalk Pizza owners. I hope the Turnpike Authority will reconsider and see it from a positive perspective. New Jersey has enough negativity without a blemish from a frivolous lawsuit. I look forward to stopping in the next time I pass through, if only to shake your hand.At least they did not copy the Ron Jon Surf Shop logo.To attract customers and potential franchisees from the state of New Jersey.... Seriously? So the New Jersey Turnpike Authority is worried people in New Jersey are going to travel all the way down here just for a slice of pizza? Maybe folks that are already in the area will stop in for a slice of home. You know, when Im traveling about, I like to eat things that locals eat, but I also like to have something from home, as well. I highly doubt anyone from New Jersey s going to stop in at a Pizza Hut or Papa Johns, so why not market to them? Its also a way for others to enjoy Jersey-style pizza without having to go up there. People need better things to do with their time.Its the first step toward possibly allowing ocean drillingThe Obama administrations decision to allow seismic searches for oil and gas deposits in the Atlantic Ocean from Delaware to mid-Florida should arouse deep concern among environmental activists. Its no surprise that the administration buried the announcement at the onset of a weekend, when the White House customarily prefers to release bad news. It came late on a Friday, amid a torrent of ominous developments in Ukraine and Gaza. Seismic searches in the deep are not good for the denizens of the ocean or their caretakers, so the administration may well have hoped few would notice. The timing suggests officials are well aware that the decision will justifiably arouse the wrath of environmental activists because it carries the potential to cause great harm to the ocean environment. The decision was clothed in language designed to show sensitivity to these concerns. In a written statement, Walter Cruickshank, acting director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, said: The bureaus decision reflects a carefully analyzed and balanced approach that will allow us to increase our understanding of potential offshore resources while protecting the human, marine, and coastal environments. The potential payoff is huge. Geologists believe 1.9 billion barrels of oil and 21.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas could be recovered off the Midand South Atlantic coast. But those estimates are based on less sophisticated surveys done three decades ago. The White House justified the decision by saying those surveys need to be updated. Despite the administrations precautions, the dynamite-like seismic testing cited by environmentalists could injure fish, whales and other marine mammals. This sort of testing is usually a precursor to actual drilling, though that would require a significant process of permitting. Still, the decision is worrisome.U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, a Democrat who chairs the Senates Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Water and Wildlife, objected to the move. The MidAtlantic is just too environmentally sensitive for drilling, he said. I urge the administration to reconsider its plans.The waters off our own state are equally sensitive. Florida senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio should be every bit as worried as Cardin. The testing area is beyond the states regulatory reach, but coastal communities up and down the Atlantic seaboard, including those in Florida, depend on the natural resources of the ocean to drive their economies. Keeping the ocean clean is vital to their existence.The administration says this is just about updating geological tracts under the ocean. We hope theyre sincere. But lets get real. The mere thought of all that potential revenue in the deep makes petroleum executives salivate. Theyve been wanting to drill in the ocean for years.In fact, the administration was preparing to hold a lease sale off the Virginia coast in 2010 but canceled it because of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Lets hope it doesnt take another disaster to make the administration regret its most recent decision.

Mayoral candidates hitting the final stretchThe Aug. 26 primary election is quickly approaching, and the candidates for Key West mayor are racing toward the finish line. Incumbent Craig Cates and challengers Margaret Romero and Sloan Bashinsky say theyre blanketing the city to talk to as many voters as they can to get their messages out. A big concern for all three candidates is affordable housing. Bashinsky, who says he was once homeless, says if elected, he would try to convince the City Commission to toss the current plan to develop the Truman Waterfront for recreation and use the area for affordable housing instead.Street people are hard to turn around most of them are drug addicts, Bashinsky said, but people who are just recently homeless or are nearly homeless, I would try to turn the city in that direction.He says the city is now just warehousing the homeless at the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island.Cates agrees affordable housing is a problem, and says the city is a victim of its own success. Affordable housing has gotten more attention as weve gotten better and better, Cates said. More people want to move here, which raises the property values and the rent. Long-range, the city has been looking at building an expanded homeless service center on Stock Island. Cates wants to look at the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District building being vacated next year by Mosquito Control, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as potential sites. Romero says with affordable housing comes economic growth, and that the city needs to start looking at doing things differently to see a change. Some have said Romero points out problems but doesnt offer sound solutions, but she says thats not true. Because when I am talking about things at meetings, I dont have the opportunity to present a solution, she said. All I can do is point out when things arent costeffective. You dont have the opportunity to present a solution when you have three minutes at the podium. Romero says she spent more than 30 years with IBM and was known for problem-solving and offering creative business plans that were cost-effective. She also says her website lists various issues facing the city, as well as her ideas for improvement.The waterfrontEach of the three candidates has vastly different ideas on the development of the 33acre Truman Waterfront.Cates plans to continue with the current plan for recreation, with a goal for completion in five years. We just got a final approval from the Navy, he said. Now well go to the commission and decide what Phase I will look like and then well go to construction drawings and then well start. We have $13 million in the bank to do Phase I; Phase I will be done in about a year, then well go to Phase II, which will probably be the amphitheater. Romero thinks tan amphitheater might not be cost-effective. I think there are a lot of mixed signals, she said. I think the average citizen would say, Who knows whats going on down there right now. We havent seen a concrete plan; we dont know whats funded and what the costs are. Bashinksy wants the waterfront for housing. And, he says, the upper portion of Smathers Beach should be clothing-optional. He says it would be an economic boon for the city.Main priorityCates says hes focused on current projects the city has before it. But Bashinsky is more focused on what he sees as righting a wrong.The first thing I would do is make a formal apology on behalf of Key West to Charles Eimers family, he said.Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., died at Lower Keys Medical Center after being taken off life support on Dec. 4. Police had pulled him over on North Roosevelt Boulevard on Nov. 28; Eimers stopped on the sand at South Beach at the Atlantic end of Duval Street.Police say he began turning blue when they were handcuffing him, which is when they began rescue attempts. An autopsy later showed Eimers had 10 broken ribs and wounds to both wrists.He died because they thought he was homeless, Bashinsky said. Hes not, but they treated him like he was.Romero says her No. 1 priority if elected is to renew trust she says residents have lost in city government. Thats my biggie, she said. Ill attribute that to a comment made by our city attorney that our city is in a downward spiral those are his words, not mine. She also wants to focus on affordable housing and economic growth looking at doing things differently and better well start to see a change in some of the issues we currently have.KEY WESTBy JESSICA MACHETTAKeynoter Contributor The Everglades what environmentalist Marjory Stoneman Douglas termed the River of Grass need more attention quicker, the writer says.Pizza logo: Much ado about nothing Photo by DAVID GOODHUEThe New Jersey Turnpike Authority says Boardwalk Pizzas logo is too similar to the agencys logo (left).

Cheryl Cioffari, AICP, Director of Planning Published 07/30/14 Keynoter, Marathon, FL 33050 ISLAMORADA, VILLAGE OF ISLANDS NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING BusinessDunkin Donuts pushing upsellsIf an iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didnt plan on. Dunkin Brands Chief Exec utive Officer Nigel Travis said Thursday the company is pushing to get its cashiers to upsell to afternoon customers. Its part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush. In the afternoon, customers who do go in are mostly just searching for a drink. Upselling of this kind often called suggestive selling in the fast-food world is common. Who hasnt been asked Would you like fries with that? But its not a strategy Dunkin has aggressively pushed in the past because most the chains business is in the morning when customers are in a rush and speed is the top priority. Dunkin Donuts has locations in Key West, Marathon, Tavernier and Key Largo. People tend to be in a slightly different mode in the afternoon, Travis said. In the afternoon, they tend to be more relaxed.For Dunkin, that means cashiers can take the extra few seconds to ask customers if they want a doughnut, cookie or even a sandwich along with that coffee. Travis said the need to upsell would be emphasized in an upcoming talk with U.S. franchisees.As an extra temptation, the company has been rolling out small cases in some stores to display items like cookies and Danishes more prominently at the counter. Franchisees are kind of excited about it, Travis said. Its a way to push various items.Its a tried-and-true strategy.The head of the U.S. division for McDonalds Corp., Jeff Stratton, has said in a past interview with the AP that keeping the chains apple-pie dispensers visible to customers right behind the cashier helps drive sales. If McDonalds were to put the dispensers in the back kitchen area, he said applepie orders would probably be cut by half.Some people may think theyre not susceptible to such tactics, but Travis says the evidence shows otherwise. He cited an example of a company where he previously worked that used video cameras to study the eye motions of customers while they waited in line. Customers would look up at the menu board to decide what they wanted while in line. But once they reached the counter, theyd look up at the menu board again, he said.That second glance at the menu suggested people are susceptible to changing their minds, Travis said. Attracting more customers in the afternoons and getting them to buy more when they visit is critical for Dunkin Donuts, with convenience stores, fast-food chains and packaged food companies all pushing into the breakfast business. Dunkin Brands Group Inc., based in Canton, Mass., cited that intensifying competition Thursday as one of the reasons for its underwhelming sales increase of 1.8 percent at established U.S. locations in the latest quarter. The disappointing results prompted Dunkin to trim its U.S. sales forecast for the year. It now expects growth of 2 to 3 percent at domestic Dunkin Donuts locations, down from the 3 percent to 4 percent increase it previously forecast.Company says afternoons a slower timeAssociated PressFAST FOOD Associated Press photo by MARK LENNIHANA girl holds a doughnut and a beverage at a Dunkin Donuts store.

But first, just a few reminders about mini-season if you already didnt know.The waters are congested, and many of the boats out there contain people who are on the water once a year. Be cautious and courteous. Have your dive flag displayed properly.Measure your lobsters and dont keep the short ones or the egg-bearing females. There are plenty of legal bugs for the taking. Finally, remember your limit is six per day not six per trip. So your total limit for the twoday recreational season is 12 per recreational harvester. And your 6-month-old doesnt count as a harvester.That said, mini-season doesnt mean the fishing stops.Offshore, the dolphin action has become spotty. There are plenty of fish, but keepers are tough to come by. Remember, dolphin must measure 20 inches to the fork of the tail to be legal size.There has, however, been a good push of tuna at the Middle and Upper Keys humps loads in the fiveto 10-pound range along with some bigger ones in the 20-pound class. The smaller tuna are being taken trolling, while the big boys are being caught fishing deep with live baits and butterfly jigs. Theres an abundance of weeds and floating debris offshore, which is producing quite a few tripletail and the occasional wahoo. On the reef, our summer snapper bite continues to be very good, with yellowtails and mangroves the primary players. Fishing on the shallow edge of the reef in 30 to 50 feet of water is productive for mangroves, with a few legal size yellowtails mixed in. For the larger tails, you need to fish off the deep edge in 70 to 90 feet. Here, there are scattered muttons mixed in, and theyre taking live baits such as small pinfish and pilchards.Larger muttons, along with amberjack, are still hanging on the deeper wrecks. A fair number of African pompano are making a showing on these spots as well. Live baits do the trick, primarily pinfish or ballyhoo. Night snapper fishing has really come into its prime on the reef and is a great way to beat the summer heat. A good strategy is to do your lobstering in the morning, take a siesta and then head out at night for your snappers.The weeks bestSeaSquareds Capt. Wayne Burri spent much of the week on the reef, where his clients took full advantage of the great snapper bite. Restaurant tables throughout Marathon were chock full of fresh snapper entrees prepared from the fish caught that day by the diners. The Lui family from Fairfax, Va., fished two days with Burri and went home with snappers, dolphin and tuna. And Capt. Jeff Knapp kept his SeaSquared clients busy with night snapper fishing as well as a fun trip he puts together at the Seven Mile Bridge for tarpon, jacks, cudas, sharks and snappers.Simons, Mary and Lynn from Sarasota had three awesome days fishing the reef with Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina in the Lower Keys. They caught their limit of big yellowtails each day. Mary caught her first black grouper (34 pounds) and Simons brought in an eight-pound black. Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, reef/wreck, sailfish, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Porkys Bayside Marina in Marathon.

It always seems like the temperature is about 100 degrees when we start, said Coral Shores High School head football coach Ed Holly. The Florida High School Athletic Association designates Aug. 5 as the first day of non-contact drills for the upcoming season. Holly said about 20 Hurricane athletes have been regulars at voluntary summer conditioning sessions, held at the schools weight room daily from 5 to 7 p.m. Its been a good mix of older players and younger guys, he said. The older ones help the younger guys, which helps them develop as team leaders. Hurricane coaches expect a strong turnout Monday, following last years successful 8-2 season and a 2114 victory over Pope John Paul II High School in the spring jamboree game. Holly recommended potential Cane players to go by the weight room between 5 and 7 p.m. this week to pick up the athletic packet of permission forms and program requirements. That way they can be ready to go as soon as possible, the coach said. School opens for students on Aug. 18. Coral Shores travels to Archbishop Carroll High School in Miami-Dade County for the Kickoff Classic, an exhibition game, at 4 p.m. Aug. 22. The Canes regular season opens at home at 7 p.m. Aug. 29 against visiting Coral Springs Charter. Other fall sports, such as swimming and girls volleyball, also can begin preseason practice on Monday. Programs may choose to begin practices closer to the start of school.Coral Shores getting ready to hit fieldPREP FOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comS.L.A.M returns to Keys watersAnglers, guides and celebrities are to fish for elusive shallow-water game fish during the Robert James Sales S.L.A.M.

The swelling ranks of Americans adopting glutenfree diets have given rise to another hot trend: People calling the whole thing a bunch of baloney. And then requesting that the baloney be sandwiched between two pieces of white bread. Served with a cookie for dessert. David Klimas has a friend who recently went gluten-free, a development the 46-year-old real estate sales manager greets with a slow eye roll. He thinks the gluten-free thing is just a fad, promoted by food companies as a way of making money. In the s, everyone had ulcers, he says. Then, it was back problems. Now, its gluten. Gluten abstinence has grown dramatically over the past several years. According to a survey by the NPD Group, a marketresearch firm, nearly a third of adults say that theyre trying to either eliminate or cut back on gluten, a combination of proteins found in wheat and other grains. And this movement has spawned a burgeoning food industry valued at at least $4 billion and perhaps more than $10 billion and climbing. Entire aisles at grocery stores are dedicated to the diet. Restaurant chains offer gluten-free menus. Trade shows devoted to glutenfree products have popped up nationwide. Bars use menu icons to denote gluten-free beers. All of which makes some people want to bang their heads against a flour mill. I dont get it, Klimas says of his friends decision to cut gluten from his diet. How can you all of a sudden be gluten-free? Hes 45. Weve been friends for 19 years. Sometimes, I think its just for him to be cool in front of the waiters. He used to eat pancakes by the dozen, adds Klimas husband, Kurt Rieschick, as the two sat over lunch at a Washington, D.C., Chipotle. (Klimas was chowing down on a taco made with a flour tortilla. Delicious, he reported.) About 1 percent of the American population suffers from celiac disease, according to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. This is a confounding affliction in which gluten consumption causes damage to the small intestine and interferes with the bodys ability to absorb vitamins. Other people are sensitive to gluten and have negative reactions to consuming it but dont have celiac disease. People who have celiac disease are often misdiagnosed before the cause of their health issues which can include digestive problems, rashes, fatigue, headaches and joint pain is pinpointed. The only treatment for the disease is to give up gluten. There has been a concerted effort to raise awareness of celiac disease, so that those living without a proper diagnosis can see an end to their suffering. But some people believe the push has caused new gluten-free converts to believe that they have a disease they dont have. The gluten-free backlash reached an apex last month, when comedian Jimmy Kimmel remarked on his late-night show that in Los Angeles, gluten was comparable to Satanism, and sent a film crew to ask gluten-free dieters whether they actually knew what gluten was (most didnt.) Talk-show host Chelsea Handler and a disgruntled Charlize Theron deconstructed the issue on-air after Handler sent glutenfree cupcakes to her friends, including Theron, for the winter holidays. I just think that if youre going to send a gift, let it be enjoyable, fumed Theron, who said the confection tasted like cardboard.Disease increasesDaniel Leffler, director of research at the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, said between 2 million and 3 million Americans report maintaining a gluten-free diet, and about 10 percent of that group has celiac disease. The number of people with the disease is rising doubling every 30 years, on pace with other autoimmune diseases such as Type 1 diabetes but the increase in that population is far outstripped by the explosive growth in people adopting the diet for other reasons, including weight loss. This has led to what Leffler calls the gluten-free paradox: Most people who are on the gluten-free diet dont have celiac disease, and most people who have celiac disease dont know that they have it and dont eat gluten-free. Some nutritionists warn that dieters might be unnecessarily depriving themselves of healthy fiber found in whole grains and not compensating with fruits, vegetables and other sources of fiber. Shira Kraft, author of Glutie Foodie, a blog that tracks her culinary adventures around D.C., was diagnosed with celiac disease almost four years ago. She says that the gluten-free movement has been a double-edged sword for people who have the disease. On one hand, its great to have more and much tastier products to choose from. But she also says that because so many people are staying gluten-free, her condition is sometimes taken less seriously.I certainly feel I have to defend myself, says Kraft, 31. Im embarrassed when I say that Im allergic to gluten, because I feel like people are rolling their eyes. Just another one, part of the fad.This report was received via the Associated Press.

The money will defray costs of repairing damage to the gardens historic chapel, especially termite-eaten and rotted wooden components. The Toppino family donated the chapel in 1958 to Montgomery General Hospital when it stood on the site. Before the hospital was built, the site was part of the botanical garden, on Stock Island, established in 1936. Lofty goals for new schoolThe curiously ovalshaped structure at the new Florida Polytechnic University, designed by noted Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, is a symbol of the states latest higher-education experiment. It is the centerpiece of what will soon-be Floridas 12th state university and the only one dedicated almost exclusively to producing science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, degrees. Its in Lakeland. Adorned with curved awnings and a roof that adjusts with the suns angle, the 162,000-square foot, $60 million Innovation, Science and Technology building will house the schools laboratories, classrooms, auditoriums and other meeting rooms. It is the perfect symbol of a university built with the Silicon Valley-type industry in mind. Florida Polytechnics opening will end nearly three years of political squabbling that culminated with the former satellite schools separation from the University of South Florida in 2012.It also clears the way for its lofty goal of drawing industry to Floridas technology core through research and business partnerships including Microsoft, Lockheed Martin and Harris Corp.With early challenges like recruiting students, no immediate accreditation and no tenure for professors, the schools viability is still a question. It will open with 500 students, less than half the 1,200 it eventually needs. Starting something from scratch is a good thing, not a bad thing, said President Randy Avent. We know we have some big challenges ahead of us.Boost from ObamaOpposition was swift when the idea was first broached for USF Polytechnic to separate into an independent university. It seemed radical to USF officials because other universities in the state already offered STEM studies. But it got a boost in 2012 when President Obama set a national goal of increasing the number of undergraduates receiving STEM degrees by 1 million by 2025. Floridas STEM gap is well-documented. According to figures released this month by the U.S. Census Bureau, about 9 percent of Florida workers between ages 25 and 64 worked in science, technology, engineering and math jobs. Another 12 percent were in related fields, like architecture or health care management. Only four other states had lower rates. Political nudging by thenlocal state Sen. J.D. Alexander led to legislation that Gov. Rick Scott signed in April 2012 to create Florida Polytechnic. It included $33 million in transfer funding from the University of Central Florida and a strict set of benchmarks that FPU must achieve by Dec. 31, 2016. Those include completing facilities and infrastructure; achieving accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools; developing new programs; and attaining full-time enrollment of at least 1,200. The influence exerted by Alexander, then the Senate budget chair, led to charges of political overreach, which he denied. Alexander, who left the Senate because of term limits, didnt return messages left by The Associated Press. Former USF trustee Gene Engle, long a vocal opponent, said hes left those sentiments in the past and hopes it succeeds.They have accomplished a lot in short period of time, he said. They have a lot of work to do, but have the necessary components to open up and have a workable university.FPUs land and construction cost is more than $120 million. It will open its doors with only a handful of buildings. State University System of Florida board member Dean Colson applauded the progress, but said there are still concerns. I remain skeptical about whether spending $30 million a year and $120 million in capital improvements is the best way to produce 500 to 1,000 STEM degrees a year. For that that amount of money, other universities could have done it much cheaper, he said. What FPU doesnt have yet in real estate, it makes up for with technology. Inside the IST building will be equipment like 3D printers and state-of-the-art labs.

Teen use of steroids increased from 5 percent to 7 percent over the same period, the survey found.Travis Tygart, chief executive of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, depicted the numbers as alarming but not surprising, given the extensive online marketing of performanceenhancing substances and near-total lack of any drug testing for high school athletes.Its what you get when you combine aggressive promotion from for-profit companies with a vulnerable target kids who want a quick fix and dont care about health risk, Tygart said in an interview. Its a very easy sell, unfortunately. Nine percent of teen girls reported trying synthetic HGH and 12 percent of boys. A picture emerges of teens both boys and girls entering a largely unregulated marketplace [online and in-store] in which performance-enhancing substances of many varieties are aggressively promoted with promises of improved muscle mass, performance and appearance, said the report. This is an area of apparently growing interest and potential danger to teens that cries out for stricter controls on manufacture and marketing. Given the high cost of authentic HGH, its possible that some of the teens who reported using it may in fact have obtained fake products. As the survey said, Its very difficult to know what exactly is in the substances teens are consuming, or what the short and long-term impact on their health may be.Steve Pasierb, president of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, said the motives of todays youthful dopers were different from the rebellious or escapist attitudes that traditionally accompanied teen drinking and pot-smoking.This is about how you feel, how you look, Pasierb said. Theyre doing this thing to get ahead.... Girls want to be thin and toned. For a lot of boys, its about their six-pack.He urged parents to talk candidly with their children about the dangers of performance-enhancing substances, but to avoid moralizing.Its not about illegality, or whether youre a good parent or bad parent, he said. Its a health issue. These substances literally alter your body. Pasierb said high school coaches have a key role in combating doping. Some are vigilant, others oblivious and perhaps a third are prepared to tolerate doping in the interests of winning, he said. The new survey noted that the upsurge in teen HGH use occurred even as famous athletes were caught up in highprofile doping cases. Last August, Major League Baseball punished Alex Rodriguez with a lengthy suspension after investigating his use of performanceenhancing drugs. A few months earlier, Lance Armstrong admitted in a TV interview to doping throughout his cycling career.By DAVID CRARYAssociated PressOUR YOUTH Keys InfoNet.com
