Story, 1B Elections TuesdayWhen the primary election arrives Tuesday in Monroe County, nearly 33 percent of the number of voters predicted to cast ballots will have already voted. And when Election Day arrives, Keys voters will decide not only their choices for party nominees for the Nov. 4 general election, but two races assured not to go to November: School Board District 4 and Circuit Court judge Group 1. As of Friday morning, of the 50,846 registered Keys voters, 1,330 had voted early and another 4,987 absentee ballots (out of 11,732 sent out) were returned, meaning 12.4 percent of registered voters had cast ballots. As for the early voting, Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin said: It could be busier. It could pick up [today] but it could be better. As for the absentees, Its a good number. The reason for that is we work it hard. The people who requested it in 2012 didnt have to request it this time around. You can apply for two general elections. Griffin said that normally during a primary, you get 30 to 35 percent [turnout]. There are a lot of very important seats up, and we want people to go vote. Today is the last day of early voting. Polls are open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elections Office at 530 Whitehead St., Key West; the Big Pine Key library, in the Winn-Dixie plaza; the Elections Office at U.S. 1 and 100th Street in Marathon; the Islamorada library at mile marker 81.7; and the Elections Office at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102.5. The two races to be decided Tuesday are nonpartisan, meaning any registered voter can cast a ballot no matter his or her party affiliation: School Board District 4, with Marathon resident and incumbent John Dick seeking a third four-year term against Islamorada resident Elizabeth Bosworth; and Circuit Court Judge Group 1, pitting incumbent Mark Jones and Donald Barrett for the sixyear term. Other local races on Tuesdays ballot: County Commission District 2: Incumbent George Neugent of Marathon against Danny Coll of Cudjoe Key. The Republican winner faces Democrat Eleanor McAdams of Summerland Key in November for the four-year seat.

Padget, a former Monroe County schools superintendent and the vice chairman of the state Board of Education, and his partner Jacob Dekker are donating $100,000 to the Kura Hulanda Foundation to get the program going. That will be matched by $300,000 from the state. We have a hell of a lot of seat time, which means you fill a [classroom] seat, the teachers show their enrollment, there are no results. All we have is end-of-course testing. Here, we have a national test. No one can mess with it. Its pass-fail. Students can move at their own pace; this is not an old-fashioned course, Padget said. Were not paying them to take the test. Were paying them to pass the test. Through COMPUTE$, the Florida Virtual School offers 18 certificates from Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle, CompTIA and Cisco.

The applicant, Little Palm Island Associates Ltd., withdrew its application for a state Department of Environmental Protection permit to flush an estimated 20,000 gallons of wastewater through an existing PVC 2inch pipe. The plastic pipeline, previously used to send fresh water to the 30-suite offshore luxury resort, runs through protected wetlands and waters in the Coupon Bight Aquatic Preserve that feed into Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary waters. On Wednesday, state Administrative Law Judge Cathy M.

When observers look back 50 years from now, the arguments supporting Floridas ban on same-sex marriage, though just as sincerely held, will again seem an obvious pretext for discrimination, wrote U.S District Judge Robert L. Hinkle of Tallahassee. Observers who are not now of age will wonder just how those views could have been held.

The Monroe County Sheriffs Office said Jorge Moreno, 25, was arrested on a warrant in Miami-Dade County Aug. 15 and was brought to the Keys Wednesday to face the charges. Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said the burglary occurred in the area of mile marker 96. A maintenance man for the property called the Sheriffs Office the morning of the break-in after finding the homes front door and a sliding glass door open. He discovered a television and five fishing rods and reels missing. Kitchen cabinets and liquor bottles were left open, and there was evidence someone ate and played video games there. Blood was found on the end of the coaxial cable that had been attached to the missing TV. It was collected as evidence and sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for testing.On July 21, the lab report IDd the suspect as Moreno.

Liberty, tolerance and respect are not zerosum concepts. Those who enter opposite-sex marriages are harmed not at all when others, including these plaintiffs, are given the liberty to choose their own life partners and are shown the respect that comes with formal marriage. Tolerating views with which one disagrees is a hallmark of civilized society. The judges ruling comes after 22 people, including nine married couples, sued Florida to recognize their marriages or grant them marriage licenses. Plaintiffs in the case include eight same-sex couples from throughout Florida and the LGBT-rights group SAVE, represented by the ACLU of Florida. Among the couples suing are to get married are Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, Key West bartenders who have been a couple for 11 years. We are overjoyed that the judge ruled on the side of fairness by ordering the state of Florida recognize the legal marriages of the plaintiffs, SAVE Executive Director Tony Lima said in a statement. Defendants in the case include Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi. Bondi spokesman Whitney Ray declined to say whether the attorney generals office will take the case to the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Were reviewing the ruling, he said. Huntsman and Jones sued Monroe County Clerk Amy Heavilin on April 1 when her office refused them a marriage license because of Floridas ban on gay marriage. She is not defending the suit but Bondi is. Hinkle wrote that the state presented no good argument for defending the law: The undeniable truth is that the Florida ban on same-sex marriage stems entirely, or almost entirely, from moral disapproval of the practice. The judge also wrote he doesnt buy Bondis defense that a critical feature of marriage is the capacity to procreate. Same-sex couples, like opposite-sex couples and single individuals, can adopt, but same-sex couples cannot procreate, Hinkle wrote. Neither can many opposite-sex couples. And many opposite-sex couples do not wish to procreate. Bondis defense motions in this case led to scrutiny of her own marital history. She has been divorced twice and has no children. The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops on Thursday supported Bondis procreation defense: Only the union of a man and a woman in and of itself can bring forth children and thus is the very origin of society. With its unique beauty and goodness revealed, the public has a worthy interest in protecting this institution in law as a means to ensure humanity is both nurtured and strengthened.Judge stays decisionFrom Marriage, 1AA REAL LIFESAVER Monroe County Public Works foreman Montillo Scotty Desquotte reunites with Rosalea Perez Garcia, 3 months old, in an awards ceremony at Wednesdays County Commission meeting in Key Largo.

The first 50 students in middle and high school to get their certificate from Microsoft get a check for $500. The next 50 will receive $400 each, then 50 more will get $300, 50 more will get $200 and 50 more will get $100. That means $75,000 in payments to 250 middleand high-school students. Students at the college dont get paid to pass the test but do get their test paid for. Gueverra said it costs $250 to $300 to administer. The key is the pipeline, Padget said. If you scroll ahead a few years, we want every middle-school student to take this. Were talking about a certificate signed by the chairman of Microsoft. Thats why were putting a premium in the first 50. The whole idea is to get kids self-motivated so they can study whenever they want. The whole focus is on outcomes. Its an independent national test administered by a company called Certiport. Porter has embraced the one-year program but said he had questions about paying the students. I had to pause when I was looking into this, he said. But this is an incentive program intended to accelerate student interest in this area ... It is unusual to engage in a direct financial incentive. But the state rewards teachers for student success. He also said hes not sure 250 students will even enter the program. To be honest, I dont know if we will meet that cap.Get kids self-motivatedFrom Computers, 1APumps, a Lower Keys group opposing grinder pumps and other aspects of the Cudjoe Regional Wastewater System. It made no sense at all, Drabinski said. If this meets [DEP] standards, then we have a serious problem with the standards. DEP spokeswoman Dee Ann Miller said Little Palm Island withdrew its permit request to further investigate this specific project and to take any appropriate action. Earlier this month, the DEP said agency staff including professional engineers and engineer managers ... concluded the application provides reasonable assurance of compliance with the applicable statutes and department rules. The petition appealing the permit contends that using the line for wastewater violates numerous safety codes and poses a serious risk of raw sewage release [and] fails to provide reasonable assurance that the project will not degrade the environment. If this got to the hearing stage, it would have been a no-brainer for the judge, Drabinski said. People familiar with the Lower Keys wastewater project said it was likely that Little Palm Island will file a new permit application after modifying aspects of its proposed connection line. Construction of the Cudjoe Regional sewer system in the Little Torch Key area where the Little Palm Island line would connect will not be affected or delayed by a redesign of the resorts planned wastewater line, Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Executive Director Kirk Zuelch said Friday. The estimated final cost of the Cudjoe Regional Wastewater System, to serve 9,000 equivalent dwelling units, is $162 million. Part of that is the treatment plant, costing $23 million.

I never thought that wed ever see this day, Commissioner David Rice said following a unanimous decision to approve a revised development agreement for the Key Largo Ocean Resort community. Commissioners, meeting in Key Largo, also voted for a final sale agreement for the Hickory House property, a Stock Island purchase that became a white elephant. And a lien on a mansion that turned into an unlicensed vacation-rental and annoyed its Tavernier neighbors for years was lifted to allow a sale. Its been a good day, Mayor Sylvia Murphy said. Key Largo Ocean Resort, a 285-lot campground at mile marker 94.8 that grew over decades into a warren of unpermitted construction and code violations, was bulldozed for redevelopment following a 2010 court order due to health and safety issues. There is substantial work being done, Jim Saunders, agent for the Key Largo Ocean Resort Condominium Association, told commissioners. Notable changes in the updated agreement allow 76 dock slips inside the oceanside marina basin, an increase of 11 slips; reconstruction of the dock building and clubhouse after inspections revealed old structures were unsafe; and temporary use of recreational vehicles until December 2016, once utilities are available for homes. One nearby resident, Gary Gross, said neighbors generally oppose allowing more boats and temporary use of campers. It was a nightmare trying to enjoy the waters out there with all the boats, Gross said. Were looking for answers [on redevelopment] but getting very little information. The original 2006 development agreement allowed five years of RV use but legal disputes among the park ownership stalled start of reconstruction until 2013. The commission added a provision to the development pact that county inspectors must receive reasonable access to the 22-acre development. Thats how we got in trouble before, Murphy said. We couldnt see what was going on in there. In other property-related actions: Sale of the one-acre Hickory House site, for $2 million to Oceanside Investors Inc. and Pritam Singh, includes a lasting requirement that a waterfront boardwalk remain open to the public during daylight hours. Current and future owners can enact reasonable rules on behavior along the walk, but cannot charge for access or erect a barrier that even gives the appearance of limited access during the day, Assistant County Attorney Nat Cassel said. Commissioner Danny Kolhage cast the lone no vote against the sale agreement, saying he still objects to abandoning part of a public road that was included in the sale to Oceanside Investors. The county paid $3.1 million for the Hickory House, fronting an Atlantic Ocean harbor, in 2006 for potential public use. Environmental issues and neighborhood concerns thwarted plans. Commissioners quickly agreed to accept a $30,000 payment from the buyers of a six-bedroom, seven-bath home on Taverniers Old Fashion Road in exchange for lifting a real-estate lien totaling more than $1.3 million from county code fines over illegal vacation rentals. Wells Fargo Bank is selling the foreclosed property, which also has a federal lawenforcement lien against the former owner, an admitted money launderer for Medicaid fraudsters. The prospective owners submitted a written promise not to use the sprawling house as a vacation rental. Two of three Key Largo properties facing fines and foreclosure suits over failure to connect to the wastewater system have begun work to hook into the sewer pipeline, county attorneys reported. RKV Investors of Miami has paid fines and achieved sewer compliance at a Lance Lane mobile home to avoid legal action. A Barracuda Boulevard home owned by Mario Rapado Villoch of Coral Gables is being connected to the sewer, and the owner agreed to settle fines. Attorneys could file a lien on the $777,000 house if fines go unpaid. Litigation against an Eagle Drive mobile home, owned by Yolanda Menendez of Miami Beach and assessed at $247,000, will go forward since it remains in violation of the sewer ordinance, with daily fines accumulating.Hickory House sale approval is among themCOUNTY COMMISSIONSign enforcement hits businesses hardKEY LARGOThe county is cracking down on signage in the Central Plaza strip mall in Key Largo, and proprietors there say their business is suffering as a result. Monroe County Code Compliance about a month ago began telling business owners at the mile marker 103 shopping plaza to take down signs hanging from the awning that lines the outside of the store fronts and to remove signs and flags from the grassy area along U.S. 1. But with the fast-moving traffic, the bushes that separate the parking lot from the road and the businesses dark windows, owners say they need those signs to attract customers. If youre driving, youre not looking, said Andrea Bettencourt, property manager for Central Plaza. The countys enforcement efforts are being felt. Business at my store dropped completely, said Gabriel Mederos, owner of Keys Appliances. No one is coming in now. Since Mederos took down a sign hanging from the awning about two weeks ago, he said walk-in business fell by about 40 percent. You need a banner here, or at least a flag along U.S. 1, he said. Ronda Norman, director of the countys Code Compliance Department, said she would have to know more about each individual business to comment on the situation. But she said in general, there can be no signage along U.S. 1 if the area is considered state right of way. The signs and flags were placed behind power poles that line the highway, which is where Diana Lewis, owner of Tropical Video Games and Technology, said county officials told Central Plaza businesses they could put signs. We need banners out there to tell people what it is we do, said Lewis, whose business has operated out of Central Plaza for five years. It was not clear at press time which part of the area in front of the shopping center is considered right of way, but the Florida Department of Transportation is in the process of reclaiming rights of way throughout the Keys. The decision has significantly impacted several establishments because FDOT is reclaiming portions of properties that businesses have for years used for parking and signs. As for the signs hanging from the awning, Norman said they require permitting as they are limited in size, cannot swing, must be placed above a walkway and have to be placed perpendicular to the facade. Emilio Ruiz, owner of The Juice House, had an Aframe sign along U.S. 1, but he moved it last Sunday after being told to do so by Code Compliance. He said its too soon to tell if removing the sign impacts his business. Its been a slow week, but itll take at least a month to really know what the effect is, Ruiz said. Ill know by Labor Day. He said he agrees there must be some regulation for signs outside businesses and along U.S. 1, but he hopes the county can compromise. There cant be 10 different sizes and colors, Ruiz said. But you have to let us have something.Code Compliance began crackdown about month agoBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Mariners participated in the United Ways Stuff the Bus campaign, which gives school supplies to children whose families cant afford to purchase them. Bug board crystallizing budgetThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board might adopt a lower property tax rate for fiscal year 2014-15 than is in place for the current budget year. A rate of .48 is proposed, down from the current years .51 rate. Commissioner Phil Goodman said the Monroe County Property App raisers Office has projected home values have increased by 5 percent this year, allowing for a lower millage rate to meet rollback; the rollback rate is a tax rate that would raise the same amount of money next year as the current year. For a $300,000 house, a homeowner would pay $144. Financial Director Bruce Holden said the Mosquito Control District is projecting a $12.2 million operating budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. Mosquito Control projects it will collect $9.7 million in property taxes next fiscal year. The district will also get $8,000 from a contract with the U.S. Navy to spray Naval Air Station Key West. The remaining $2.5 million needed will come from Mosquito Controls $4.7 million reserve fund to be used for a new building on Big Coppitt Key. Thats needed because the lease on the property the agency rents from the city of Key West on Stock Island isnt being renewed. The property is going to cost $750,000 and the building itself is around $2.5 million, Holden said. By the spring of 2015, itll be up for contractors to bid on it. Hopefully itll be finished by spring of 2016. Commissioners Steve Smith and Bill Shaw voted against the rollback rate at the boards July meeting, calling for a higher tax rate due to the Big Coppitt building project. We will burn through our reserves and theres nothing built into the budget to build them up, Smith said. We now have 20 percent less staff. If we reduce the millage any further, we will dramatically lose services. Goodman, who voted for rollback in July with commissioners Jack Bridges and Jill Cranney-Gage, favors borrowing money to pay for the new building and holding onto reserves. Weve got reserves earmarked for a number of emergencies like a hurricane or a disease outbreak, Goodman said. I would propose borrowing the money. One-time projects are typically paid longterm. Other major costs for Mosquito Control next fiscal year include $180,000 for a new computer system. District Director Michael Doyle said commissioners approved the new system last year. While capital projects are expected to eat up reserves, Doyle said other costs have been lowered. We lowered our expected gasoline costs since weve rearranged our inspector routes, Doyle said. The same thing happened with our chemical [costs]. We have better targeting for our chemicals. The board is finalizing the 2014-15 budget. Two public hearings on the budget are scheduled.

Saturday, August 23, 2014 5A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Dog found shot, bound by tapeMonroe County Sheriffs Office detectives are investigating what the Upper Keys top animal control official is calling one of the worst cases of animal cruelty she has seen in her career of more than 30 years. The case involves a female pit bull terrier that was found with a possible gunshot wound to the back of the head, stuffed in a black plastic garbage bag with duct tape bound around her neck and wrapped around her snout. She survived one day thanks to the man who found and freed her, Key Largos Daniel Rossler. But her injuries were so severe that she had to be put down the next day. Rossler discovered the abused dog in the morning on July 22 while driving along Gun Club Road in Key Largo, which is on the ocean side of U.S. 1 around mile marker 101.5. How could anyone do that? The nature of the cruelty that I saw, how could that be in somebodys head, Rossler said this week. Rossler saw the bag on the side of the road and noticed it was moving. He knew something was inside. It wasnt windy, so something else was making it move, Rossler said. As I got closer, I saw a paw sticking out of the bag. Then I tore the bag open and I saw the dog. Rossler immediately cut the tape off the dogs neck and carefully unwrapped the tape from around her snout. He thought, after surviving such an act of human-inflicted cruelty, the animal just might lash out when completely freed. But she showed no signs of aggression, and once the tape was completely off, she allowed Rossler to pet her, and she followed him wherever he went. She was very friendly, Rossler said. She was rubbing up against me and she stayed by my side. Rossler drove the dog to the nearby Florida Keys Shooting Club, where a member called both the Sheriffs Office and the Humane Animal Care Coalition, the countys animal control agency in the Upper Keys. While Rossler waited for animal control, he gave the dog water. Although she appeared thirsty and consumed about a liter of it, the dog had trouble getting her tongue all the way out of her mouth because of her injuries. Marsha Garrettson, who heads the Animal Care Coalition, said her veterinarian concluded the dog had been shot in the back of the head, and the bullet went on to damage the animals nasal passage. The duct tape was fashioned around the dogs neck in a way that would eventually asphyxiate her. The dog also suffered other abuse, including having her canine teeth smashed out, and her ears were cut short. Nevertheless, she never seemed to have lost her desire for human affection. She was wagging her tail when she was with us, even after suffering through all that abuse, Garrettson said. But although the dog appeared to be recovering, she did not survive through the next day. She began to bleed internally, and Garrettsons staff had to euthanize her. She was suffering, and we had to give the animal its dignity, Garrettson said. We had to do whats right for the animal. The news devastated Rossler, who found out after he called Garrettson while he was driving. I had to pull over, said Rossler, a dog owner who wanted to adopt the abused animal. I just broke down. Garrettson suspects the dog was part of a Miami-Dade dogfighting operation either a breeder or a bait dog, a dog fighting pit bulls attack for practice. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said the agency has assigned a detective to investigate. Weve got a crime here, she said. And we will be looking into who could have done this.Animal control suspects it was used for fightingKEY LARGO Political advertisment paid for and approved by George Neugent for County Commission, District 2 By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comVeterinarians believe the dog was shot in the back of the head.

Note the price of a gallon for that today, almost anyone could fill his or her tank without making much of a dent in the wallet. Today Keyswide, add $3 to that cost per gallon, give or take a few cents.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALCongress needs to get seriousLETTERS TO THE EDITORLet free market reignWatching the last Marathon City Council meeting and listening to Mayor Dick Ramsay speak about property rights regarding the redevelopment of Florida Keys Country Club (formerly Sombrero Country Club) and then his following remarks about the 1,500-foot rule regulating where liquor stores can go in relation to other liquor stores and schools made me wonder why that came up. The Keynoter article about a new lawsuit answered my question. The repeal of the so-called pig ordinance (regulating domestic swine) was a fine example of government correcting a mistake by abolishing an ordinance that was designed to benefit a particular few in the community at the expense of the greater community at large. Kudos to all who voted to repeal the ordinance. The city is now faced with a lawsuit and the legal fees that will follow to defend another bad ordinance that should be abolished the 1,500-foot rule for package stores. When the ordinance passed, it was so painfully obvious that it was all about protectionism for the already established package stores. Totally irrelevant arguments were used in favor of the rule, which included a danger to the morality of the community and children might have to walk past a package store on their way to school. If these arguments were in regard to an establishment where alcohol was sold for consumption on premises, they could possibly have some limited validity, but not for a package store. It is frequently heard coming from the dais at City Council meetings how the city is and should be a businessfriendly place. Why then this conflict? Do they just talk the talk but not walk the walk? It could possibly happen that if the ordinance that established this arbitrary distance rule is abolished, no additional package stores will open because entrepreneurs will decide the package-store space is already filled and there is no room to make profits, or it could be that a new package store will open that will be able to offer better prices to the consumer or have a better location than what is currently available. In any case, the free and unfettered marketplace should make those decisions, not an over-regulatory government. Jack Berrigan MarathonWhy not a pedestrian bridge?At the Monroe County Commissions monthly meeting on Wednesday, the topic of pedestrians crossing U.S. 1 in the business section of Key Largo was addressed. Evidently the state Department of Transportation has determined that enough pedestrian traffic in the Holiday Inn vicinity exists to warrant a pedestrian crossing at mile marker 99.7. The agency has created a crosswalk controlled by flashing yellow lights. During the public comment portion of the meeting, several speakers thought this crosswalk was inadequate to resolve the issue. Suggestions were made that varied from a traffic light to a lower speed zone or walking down to the traffic light at mile marker 99.4 to cross. That would be a total disaster, with vehicle traffic crossing and turning from six different directions (this intersection should long ago have had the stoplight replaced with a roundabout traffic circle). It definitely is not the place for increased pedestrian traffic to cross the highway. All of the suggestions may have had some merit but none totally resolved the issue of car vs. man. However I believe there is another solution. Replace the crosswalk with an overhead pedestrian bridge with ramps at both sides in place of stairs. This way walkers, bike riders, wheelchair users and others with walking disabilities can safely transit across the four lanes of U.S. 1 without the fear of an encounter with a fastmoving vehicle, and drivers will be able to transit the area without fear of hitting a pedestrian. As a driver I have found this current crosswalk extremely confusing with the constant flashing yellow lights. Howard Gelbman Key LargoInstead of GOP grandstanding about scandals imagined, solutions would be niceThe great irony about Congress being in recess this month is that many legislators work harder chasing money and shaking hands in pursuit of re-election during this period than when theyre in Washington. When it comes to uselessness, this Congress is one for the books.The latest report measuring the extent of legislative dereliction was issued last week by the Pew Research Center. It found that the current crop of lawmakers had enacted only 142 laws, the fewest of any Congress in two decades during comparable time spans. And of those, it said, only 108 were substantial, rather than ceremonial. Even the notorious do-nothing Congress that Harry Truman railed against in 1948 did better. It managed to pass more than 900 bills into law. The sheer ineptitude of the House of Representatives was on full and embarrassing display in the last two days of the session, when Republican leaders offered a modest bill to deal with the childmigrant crisis. The anti-immigrant crowd refused to go along because the measure wasnt harsh enough. A substitute, which passed 223 to 189, would not only expedite the deportation of Central American children, but it would also phase out President Obamas program to offer temporary legal status to undocumented immigrants who came to this country as children, even though this is in no way connected to the crisis. And it would further militarize the border, which does nothing helpful, but does cost money. Afterward, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, one of the most far-out members of the tea party caucus, was triumphant about destroying the offer by her partys own leadership: We completely gutted the bill. One big reason for Congress sad record of enacting laws is that Bachmann and her tea party allies have effectively become the driving force in the chamber and robbed Speaker John Boehner of his claim to leadership. Thats a recipe for failure. Many House-passed bills catering to the right have no chance of becoming law because the Senate wont join the craziness, and the president would veto them if they got to his desk. As it is, he doesnt have to worry. Obama has vetoed only two bills since becoming president, according to the Pew report fewer than any president going back to the 1800s. The endless hearings into the attack on Americans in Benghazi led by Rep. Darrell Issa, chasing after a nonexistent scandal, have effectively been exposed as a hoax by his fellow Republicans, no less.If they were to get serious, lawmakers would find that there are sensible, practical solutions for immigration, medical care and a host of other problems that afflict the country. They seem intractable only because Congress is not interested in finding solutions.

Mooring field killedThe top-ranked spot for a new Monroe County mooring field for boaters formally was thrown overboard Wednesday. Monroe County commissioners, meeting in Key Largo, agreed that plans to seek a new mooring field in Key Largos Buttonwood Sound should be scrapped. There was a lot of opposition overwhelming opposition, county Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones told commissioners. We lost our potential shoreside [services] providers. A July 9 meeting called by the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowner Associations on the plan to seek a mooring field for up to 100 boats drew a crowd of more than 100 people from the area. Virtually all turned thumbs down. Sunset Cove resident Steven Hartz told commissioners Wednesday that creating a mooring field in Buttonwood Sound could threaten the areas healthy seagrass and abundant wildlife. If there is a worst place in the Florida Keys to try to get a permit for a marina, this would be it, Hartz said. Commissioners agreed to seek alternate locations. An area near Gilberts Resort at Jewfish Creek was cited as one possibility, but the location has drawbacks like limited space for moorings and being a long distance from the islands main business centers. Commissioner George Neugent, a strong advocate of creating more mooring fields like Marathons Boot Key Harbor, suggested the county could acquire property as a land base for liveaboards and cruising sailors. He pointed to a three-acre bayside property at mile marker 102.5, owned by the Marine Mammal Conservancy, that is facing foreclosure and massive county code fines. In other action Wednesday, commissioners: Supported about $100,000 in overtime hours for county Growth Man agement staff to speed the processing of building permits in the pipeline before an Oct. 1 date for permit rate hikes. Total permit costs are not set until a permit has been approved. Approved $19,000 for a conflict-resolution center based at Florida State University to help in a review of affordable-housing efforts in Monroe County. County commissioners and staff will attend an 11 a.m. Monday meeting at the Marathon Government Center to discuss workforce housing with state Rep. Holly Raschein.COUNTY COMMISSIONProjects slowing U.S. 1 trafficROADWORK By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comThe long and painful reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West is complete, but the state Department of Transportation is now busy with three projects on U.S. 1 amounting to $9.5 million in roadwork. Key West-based contractor Charley Toppino and Sons started work between Caribbean Drive at mile marker 24.5 and West Shore Drive at mile marker 25 in July. The speed limit is reduced from 55 mph to 45 mph. Workers are restriping and repaving the highway. Storm swales and sidewalks will be installed on the ocean side of the road. Its a major drainage project, DOT spokeswoman Nancy Barta said. With repaving, it usually happens in the middle of the night. Between mile marker 32.5 and mile marker 33 on Big Pine Key, workers are widening the southbound paved shoulder. Bicycle lanes are being installed on both sides of the highway. The project began in June and is projected to last three months. In the Middle Keys, Miami-based contractor General Asphalt Co. has been repaving U.S. 1 from mile marker 54.5 to mile marker 57.4 since April. The project is expected to last 250 days; DOT has the project slated for completion by the end of the year. Please be cautious driving through the construction zones. Some people drive too fast around construction people and its too dangerous, Barta said. Lane shifts or closures take place during non-peak hours. Dirt fill from the project is at Marathon City Hall and will be relocated to Knights Key on the other end of town. City Manager Mike Puto said the fill will be used to widen the northbound and southbound lanes and for the shoulders. The fill will also be used to help construct a left-turn lane. Much of that area was repaved earlier this year.Summerland Key, Middle Keys get upgradesBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comIts a major drainage project, With repaving, it usually happens in the middle of the night.DOT spokeswoman Nancy Barta

THE FULLERS INSURANCE 305-294-6677 HOMEOWNERS WIND FLOOD1432 Kennedy Drive Key West, FL 33040 www. FullersInsurance.com BusinessUnited luring fliers with mealsTo win the hearts of frequent business travelers, United Airlines is going through their stomachs. The carrier has been looking for ways to woo back some of its top fliers who defected to other carriers following a rocky merger with Continental Airlines. So its upgrading first-class food options and replacing snacks with full meals on some of its shortest flights. The changes, announced Thursday, mean that instead of potato chips, chocolate chip cookies and bananas, passengers on flights of at least 800 miles will get meals such as chicken and mozzarella on a tomato focaccia roll and turkey and Swiss cheese on a cranberry baguette. Currently, meals are served only on flights of 900 miles or more trips that usually last close to two hours. Passengers on 106 extra daily flights, spread out over 13 routes such as Houston to Des Moines, Iowa, will get full meal service starting in February. The move comes as American Airlines goes the other way, eliminating hot meals on most flights less than 1,000 miles starting Sept. 1. The change which upset many frequent fliers is part of Americans merger with US Airways and does expand meals to some US Airways flights that previously only had snacks. Delta Air Lines serves first-class meals on flights of more than 900 miles. That means United will offer full meals on more short flights than its competitors, although each airline makes exceptions for some key shorter business routes like the 731-mile trip between New York and Chicago. United already this month replaced two bland salad options with four heartier choices. Starting Sept. 1, three frozen and reheated sandwiches currently served will be replaced by eight sandwich and wrap choices made daily. In the fall, it will add Prosecco sparkling wine to its beverage menu. Customers shouldnt have to make sacrifices just because they are on board an aircraft, says Todd Traynor-Corey, the airlines managing director of food design. That might be true, but in an industry known for its razor-thin profit margins, food has always been a target of cost-cutting. With U.S. airlines each year carrying 645 million passengers domestically, every little food decision had big implications. In the 1980s, then-American Airlines Chief Executive Officer Robert Crandall famously decided to remove a single olive from every salad. The thought was that passengers wouldnt notice and American would save $40,000 a year. Its been a decade since most airlines stopped serving free meals in coach on domestic flights. Dennis Cary, an airline consultant with ICF International, says meals alone wont drive passengers to one airline over another, but can help leave a better impression of a flight. Its on the margin, Cary says, but its one of the things people like to talk about. United has been struggling since its 2010 merger with Continental. It lags behind American and Delta in the number of planes with Wi-Fi, its on-time performance slipped and a series of computer glitches have left passengers angry. Business travelers who fly weekly got fed up with the repeated problems; other airlines were successful in luring some away. CEO Jeff Smisek has struggled to collect the same high airfares from business customers that other airline do, leading to pressure from Wall Street analysts. Improving food could be a start to winning back some passengers. A hot meal on a two-hour flight might not sound like a necessity, but for busy frequent fliers it might be the only chance to grab a bite. Business travelers, running from a meeting to catch an earlier flight, dont have the time stop and pick up food along the way, says Gary Leff, co-founder of online frequent flier discussion site MilePoint.Airline upgrading its first-class options for foodBy SCOTT MAYEROWITZAssociated PressBUSINESS TRAVEL Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis product image provided by United Airlines shows a caprese on asiago baguette sandwich, one of a variety of the airlines new first-class food options.Cost rises to raise kidsA child born in 2013 will cost a middle-income American family an average of $245,340 until he or she becomes an adult, with families living in the Northeast taking on a greater burden, according to a report out Monday. Those costs food, housing, child care and education rose 1.8 percent over the previous year, the Agriculture Departments new Expenditures on Children and Families report said. As in the past, families in the urban Northeast will spend more than families in the urban South and rural parts of the U.S., or roughly $282,480. When adjusting for projected inflation, the report found that a child born last year could cost a middleincome family an average of about $304,480. The U.S. Department of Agricultures annual report, based on the governments Consumer Expenditure Survey, found families were consistent in how they spent their money across all categories from 2012 to 2013. The costs associated with pregnancy or expenses accumulated after a child becomes an adult, such as college tuition, were not included. In 1960, the first year the report was issued, a middleincome family could spend about $25,230, equivalent to $198,560 in 2013 dollars, to raise a child until the age of 18. Housing costs remain the greatest child-rearing expense, as they did in the 1960s, although current-day costs like childcare were negligible back then. For middle-income families, the U.S.D.A. found, housing expenses made up roughly 30 percent of the total cost of raising a child. Child care and education were the second-largest expenses, at 18 percent, followed by food at 16 percent. Expenses per child decrease as a family has more children, the report found, as families with three or more children spend 22 percent less per child than families with two children. Thats because more children share bedrooms, clothing and toys, and food can be purchased in larger, bulk quantities.That includes housing, food and educationAssociated PressCONSUMERS 601 W.

The next home meet is Sept. 17. The Hurricane football season begins with a 7:30 p.m. Friday home game against Coral Springs Charter at George M. Barley Memorial Stadium.

The first home game is Sept. 19 against Hollywood Christian.Seasons start in earnest coming weeksUPPER KEYS PREP SPORTSKeys teams all even upA volleyball preseason tournament at Marathon High School Wednesday saw its share of upsets and surprises, with the all-Keys event ending in a virtual three-way tie. Key West High, Coral Shores High and host Marathon each went 1-1 in the exhibition. I cant remember the last time each team had a 1-1 record for the tournament, said Marathon coach Kevin Freeman. Hopefully this makes for a good season within the Keys. An experienced Coral Shores squad swept Marathon 25-21, 25-23 in the best-ofthree contest but not before the young Lady Dolphins rallied in both games. Freeman considered the match a success despite the loss. Coral Shores is a veteran team, Freeman said. We came back and kept it close. Sophomore middle hitter Rachel Philcox had three kills in the first match. Freshman back-row player Baelee Pettry put the Dolphins on the scoreboard with 10 serving points. But the Dolphins missed 11 serves during the contest, which cost Marathon the win, Freeman said. Key West, with a young squad, then surprised the crowd by beating Coral Shores in three games. The Hurricanes took the opener, 25-16, but the Conchs stormed back for the next two games, 26-24 and 15-8. Coming off the upset, Key West pushed Marathon into a three-game match. Marathon won the first game and Key West took the second, both in 25-15 scores. The Dolphins triumphed in the last game, 15-8. Dolphin junior Amanda Bruland served 11 straight points in the opening game. We fell flat in the second game. We had mental errors and were getting tired, Freeman said of the middle game. We stopped thinking and stopped talking to each other. If we want to be a good team, we gotta talk to each other. Excitement brimmed throughout the gym for the last game, with fans waiting to see if Key West would beat both Keys rivals. But the Dolphins came back strong as junior setter Jordan Roney scored four points off her first serves. Eighth-grade setter Grace Kirwa, making her varsity debut, was instrumental in the victory, setting up Roney for spikes and kills. Marathon gets another chance against Coral Shores when they play the regularseason opener in Tavernier at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday following a 4 p.m. junior-varsity contest.

Fall Fly returns for its 40th yearFor 40 years, a group of first-rate fly fishermen has congregated at the Islamorada Invitational Fall Fly Bonefish Tournament, set this year for Sept. 9 through 12. Locally referred to as the Fall Fly, the annual endeavor is a test of stealth for up to 25 angler and guide teams. The challenge has drawn anglers from around the U.S. and Europe. Notable participants over the years have included Flip Pallot, brothers Sandy Moret and Randy Moret, the late Billy Pate and author and Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen. The 2014 winners name will join the roster of top anglers as well as those of champion guides such as Bill Knowles, Steve Huff, Tim Klein and George Hommell, founder of Islamoradas World Wide Sportsman, on the perpetual trophy prominently displayed at Florida Keys Outfitters. The Fall Fly kicks off with a 6 p.m. welcome reception and captains meeting Sept. 9 at the Islamorada Fishing Club next to the Lorelei Restaurant and Cabana Bar at mile marker 82 bayside. Three days of fly-fishing for bonefish follow. Anglers must earn points for both weight and release fish to qualify for the win. Each day starts at the Lorelei, where anglers are to breakfast before fishing and check in after competition. All bonefish catches are to be photographed and then released alive. Entry fee is $1,000 per angler, which includes fishing, admission to social and cocktail party functions and awards. Original artwork valued at $5,000 is to be awarded the top anglers.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 LivingLook to Old WorldFancy some furmint? How about a nice glass of grillo? If youve never heard of either, chances are you will. Wine lists are getting a makeover as producers all over the world make a play for U.S. palates. There are so many new wines coming from around the world, Americans choices have increased exponentially, says wine expert Mike DeSimone, co-author with Jeff Jenssen of Wines of California: The Comp rehensive Guide, scheduled for release in September. Among the emerging varieties: Definitely mavrud from Bulgaria and malvasia Istriana from Croatia. Also, were seeing more nero davola and grillo from Sicily, says Jenssen. (Mavrud is a red wine, malvasia a white.) The funny thing is, none of these is new. They are just new to the American wine market. Take Sicily, a region primarily known for cheap bulk wine until relatively recently, when producers started focusing on quality. International varieties such as merlot and cabernet sauvignon can and do grow here. But there also are interesting local grapes such as nero davola (neh-row DA-vo-lah), a red, which is beginning to make a name for itself in the U.S. market, and grillo (GREE-low), a white grape, that is showing up in imports like Stemmaris Dalila, an 80/20 mix of grillo and viognier. Some of the new choices in wine are due to political changes; the break-up of the Soviet Union has led to the emergence of a number of wines from Eastern and Central Europe. Furmint, for instance, is a white grape from Hungary, which usually goes into that countrys somewhat betterknown tokaji (to-KAY) dessert wine, but also is made as a dry white. Bulgaria has benefited from entrance to the European Union and access to financial support, says Christy Canterbury, a wine writer and educator who is one of the few women to have attained Master of Wine status. Some of the wineries that I have seen in Bulgaria are as sophisticated as the top first growth, in Bordeaux, she says, referring to the French classification system which puts first growth at the top. And while Eastern European wines can be uneven in quality, Canterbury says the wines shes tasted from Moldova so far have been off the charts good. Though its a small country in between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova is a wineproducing powerhouse that used to provide a fifth of the wine consumed by the former Soviet Union, Canterbury says.Moldova?A red wine to look out for is rara neagra from the Purcari winery. Rara neagra is a red wine grape grown in the Republic of Moldova and Romania, which also has a region called Moldova that produces wine. Of course, selling wines with unfamiliar names can be a challenge. Thats where someone like Michael Madrigale, head sommelier at New Yorks Bar Boulud, comes in. Im there to help people not be afraid of a wine that begins with x, he says, referring to the Greek red wine xinomavro (ksee-NO-mahvroh), a savory red that is growing in popularity in the United States; a producer Madrigale likes is Karydas in the Naoussa region of Northern Greece. Meanwhile, assyrtiko (aSEER-ti-koh), a crisp Greek white wine, also is making inroads. Madrigale calls it just the perfect versatile wine for Mediterraneanfood. Whats the next malbec? (The Argentine red that took the wine world by storm a few years back.) Winemakers from all over the world ask us this all the time, and our answer is Nothing, says DeSimone. Wine has become like television and music; the market is fragmented. And while there are a lot more stars than there used to be, none of them dominates the airwaves. Malbec is the last big star of the studio system. Every other unknown grape entering the market can hope at best to become the darling of the indie set.Actually, look there for more choices in U.S.By MICHELLE LOCKEAssociated PressTHE WINE CELLAR Associated Press photo by MATTHEW MEADThis shows Dalila and Cantodoro wines. New-wave wines, varieties from the reinvented, or re-inventing, regions of Eastern Europe, Sicily and Greece go far beyond the world of chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.

Want to win $10,000?Are you an armchair inventor with a better way to keep powerboaters, sailors and anglers afloat and want the chance to win $10,000? The Annapolis, Md.,based BoatUS Foundation, along with the Personal Floatation Device Manufacturers Association and the National Marine Manufacturers Association, have teamed up to seek out the newest technologies and design ideas with what they call the Innovation in Life Jacket Design Competition, which kicked off Thursday. We believe there are some creative folks out there that can help us rethink a 100-year-old design with fresh, out-of-the-box ideas, said BoatUS Foundation President Chris Edmonston. The $10,000 cash award goes to the winning designer; inventors have until April 15, 2015, to submit their idea to www.BoatUS. org/design. Waterway users are always looking for more comfortable life jackets, Edmonston said. While current models of life jackets save lives every day, many are still bulky and uncomfortable, leaving boaters reluctant to wear them. This competition hopes to challenge that mindset. Entries that embrace new technologies and non-traditional thinking are encouraged from individuals or groups, such as high school science clubs, collegiate design programs or even boating and fishing clubs. There are no rules regarding types of materials to be used or whether the design meets any current U.S. standards. Entries can be as simple as hand-drawn theoretical designs to working prototypes. The entries will be judged based on wearability, reliability, cost and innovation: Wearability relates to the level of comfort. Reliability will take into account the chances for potential failure. Cost will look at the affordability of the design. Innovation will take into account originality or the utilization of new technologies. The BoatUS Foundation will post entries on their website and Facebook page for public voting. The winner will be announced at the September 2015 International Boat Builders Exhibition and Conference in Louisville, Ky. Beyond the $10,000 grand prize, additional cash prizes are offered for second and third place.Boating groups want designs for life jacketsON THE WATER LIVING BRIEFSAnimal farm open Sunday afternoonThe Monroe County Sheriffs Office Animal Farm is open from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Turning the camera on her efforts to protect the seas was one thing, but putting herself center stage made Earle uneasy, Stevens said. Actor-filmmaker Stevens managed to persuade her to change her mind, and the result is Mission Blue,directed by Stevens and Robert Nixon (coproducer, Gorillas in the Mist) and available on Netflix. If we want to save the ocean, we have to see it through her eyes and get people engaged through her life and her passion, Stevens said.Earle, Time magazines first Hero for the Planet, is a former chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration whose many honors include the 2011 Royal Geographical Society Gold Medal. Shes dove the Keys many times, most recently this summer when she visited marine researcher Fabien Cousteau at the Aquarius Reef Base off Key Largo, where Cousteau spent 32 days documenting marine life. The underwater laboratory is near Conch Reef about 60 feet down. Aquarius allows scientists to live and work underwater and scuba dive without needing to return to the surface or decompress. The founder of Mission Blue ( Mission-Blue.org), among other organizations, Earles focus includes creating a global web of hope spots, marine sanctuaries in which activities including drilling and commercial fishing are prohibited. A number of such protected ocean areas have been designated during the films more than four years of production, Stevens said. Stevens hopes the documentarys bluntness paired with Earles optimism, encourages individuals and governments to respect the vulnerability of every body of water, whether oceans, rivers or streams. I hope people want to get in the water, be careful what they put in it and what fish they eat, said Stevens An avid scuba diver since his Florida days starring in Foxs 1993 series Key West, Stevens said hes seen firsthand how much some fish populations and coral reefs have deteriorated over the years. The documentary tracks Earle as she pursues her longtime dedication to exploring and aiding the seas. How her commitment developed and its effect on her personal world, including her roles as a wife and mother, also a key part of the film. Earle, who will be 79 on Aug. 30 and who Stevens said puts him to shame as a hardy diver, is a trailblazer in many ways. In the 1960s, she made the then-bold decision to temporarily leave her family to undertake an expedition with an all-male group of 70 colleagues, Stevens said. In 1979, she set a womens depth-diving record of more than 1,200 feet Terrifying, but not for her. Shes an explorer, he said. Although the issue of environmental protection can be divisive, Stevens said he doesnt expect the film to stir controversy. Thats in contrast to The Cove, the Oscar-winning 2009 film he helped produce which depicted how fishermen in a Japanese village herd dolphins into a cove and spear them for their meat, which is considered a delicacy. The fishermen of Taiji said the hunt is part of their villages tradition and condemned Western critics who eat other kinds of meat as hypocritical. Asked if his filmmaking has affected his on-screen career, Stevens said only in that it can cloud the perception of what he does. Hes still an actor who enjoys working in films and on stage, he said, adding, but you dont have to do just one thing. I love making documentaries, love the people I get to meet and the life of it and the freedom of filmmaking, as opposed to when youre doing a feature and you have the studio and the producers breathing down your neck, he said. Theres a great freedom of expression.Stevens, former star of Key West, bios oceanographer Sylvia EarleBy LYNN ELBERAssociated PressDOCUMENTARIESPhotos courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESS/NETFLIXThese images of Dr. Sylvia Earle are scenes from the Netflix documentary Mission Blue.
