A Monroe County grand jury report released Wednesday largely found that officers did not use excessive force while taking Eimers into custody. No criminal indictment was returned against any officer. The grand jury is a secret, one-sided proceeding, Cara Higgins, a Key West attorney representing the Eimers, said Friday. As we sit here today, we have no idea what was presented to the grand jury, or why the jury made this decision not to indict, Higgins said. We feel very, very strongly about this case...We have a problem here. In a statement on the grand jury report, Key West Police Chief Donnie Lee said, Were glad that this criminal investigation is concluded...Ive felt confident since Day 1 that our officers action did not cause Mr. Eimers death.

The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority hired him last week as a computer programmer. Over the past several years, Acevedo, 48, applied for a job with the FKAA eight times. This year, he tried again, successfully. Despite a felony conviction for covering up his then-wifes theft of almost a half-million dollars from the district, it appears Acevedo has not lost support from many heavy hitters in the Key West powerHernandez, Highsmith are his referencesPUBLIC TRUST KEYS INFRASTRUCTUREConcrete chunk falls off Old Seven MileParts of the historic Seven Mile Bridge are falling into the ocean, making it dangerous for boaters to go near the historic structure. This week, the state Department of Envir onmental Protection plac ed danger buoys near five sections of cantilever overhang large beams used to support bridges near mile marker 41.8 of U.S. 1. Petty Officer Rosalie Hammond, spokeswoman for U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West, said a concrete portion of the bridge has already fallen and sunk into the ocean. Mariners should be aware of safety issues, its an old bridge, Hammond said. There are five concrete parts. One already fell in, and four more are going to fall in. Hammond said boaters should always be aware of the potential hazards of boating around the bridge. A Marine Safety Information Broadcast has been issued near positions N 24 41 368 W 081 12 259 warning boaters of the crumbling concrete. Dee Ann Miller, deputy press secretary for the state DEP, said the departments Division of Recreation and Parks is not actively maintaining the bridge, but the agency does monitor it for issues. Miller said local law enforcement and firerescue agencies have been notified of the area as well. An agreement to restore the historic portion of the Seven Mile Bridge was struck last year between Monroe County, the city of Marathon and the state Department of Tran sportation. As proposed, the state Department of Transportation would pay $57.2 million toward the total cost over 30 years and retain ownership of the bridge. Monroe County would pitch in $14.24 million and the city of Marathon $5.34 million. DOT Spokeswoman Sandra Bello told the Keynoter in July that construction on the bridge could start March 2016 and be done by September 2017. Coast Guard warns boaters to use cautionKeynoter photo by DAVID GOODHUEThe Coast Guard is warning boaters to be careful around portions of the Old Seven Mile Bridge after a concrete chunk fell off into the water recently.Police: Have fun, but be careful this weekendCrowds are expected to help send out the summer season this Labor Day Weekend in the Florida Keys. Its one of the Big Three holiday weekends for boating here, along with Memorial Day and Fourth of July, Officer Bobby Dube of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said. Lobster mini-season probably draws more boats, Dube noted, but those folks usually are more interested in lobster than partying. We want everyone to have fun, Dube said, but use common sense and have a designated operator. There will be zero tolerance for boating under the influence. Schools and most municipal, county and state offices close for Labor Day. Any three-day weekend means we see more traffic from the mainland, Key West city spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. Well have special traffic details out there. Events this Labor Day include: The annual memorial for more than 400 victims of the deadly Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 will be held at the Hurricane Monument in Islamorada. The Matecumbe Historical Trust hosts the 9 a.m. Monday event at mile marker 82. Long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad returns to Key West for a 10 a.m. Monday event on Smathers Beach that dedicates a plaque in her honor.

Julian J. Oldham, 28, of Augusta was arrested on two felony counts and two misdemeanor charges after the 10 p.m. ruckus in the store at mile marker 82.7. According to a Monroe County Sheriffs Office report, Oldham walked up to a man standing in the stores checkout line. Oldham demanded a gold chain that the victim was wearing. Oldham then grabbed the chain and tried to forcibly remove it, said Deputy Becky Herrin, the Sheriffs Office public information officer. After the two men struggled, Oldham became enraged and began knocking down shelves of merchandise, causing considerable damage in the store, Herrin said. Witnesses said Oldham left the Tinys parking lot in a gray jacked-up Ford truck with a distinctive rear-window decoration a sticker depicting a pole-dancer with words Dirty Hooker. The truck and Oldham were found at a nearby motel. Oldham was booked into Monroe County jail under a $37,500 bond on counts of forcible robbery, causing more than $1,000 in property damage, battery and disturbing the peace. The victim fled from the store and had not been found at press time. Herrin said deputies do not know if the Oldham and the other man were strangers or acquaintances. abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJK SNOBERGERJANET GILLIS SNOBERGER, Born in Highland Park, MI on January 18, 1928, passed away peacefully on August 18, 2014 in Naples, FL. Janet is remembered fondly as an amazing lady who constantly surprised and astonished friends and family with her lifelong achievements of dreams and goals which everyone thought were beyond women of her time. Although she was widowed at age 46 when her husband, Jim, died and was sole support of three children, Janet found the resolve to build a very successful business career. A superb ocean sailor, she had the brilliant and original idea of selling real estate in south Florida -by boat! She became famous for selling homes by highlighting them to buyers from the "water side." This led to Janet, teaming with key business executives and finding commercial real estate properties for three very prominent national companies. Despite raising her children and achieving remarkable business success, Janet actually became the first ever female Commodore of a major sailing club on the east coast of the USA. She was elected the fifth Commodore of the Hillsboro Inlet Sailing Club. The thought of a woman captaining a boat, training young men in sailing and even becoming a Commodore did enrage some male sailors. On one lengthy voyage through the Caribbean islands, one seafarer snorted: "You are a rash and conceited woman." Janet just smiled. In her fifties, Janet met and fell in love with Phil Snoberger of Lighthouse Point, FL. At a time when many couples are slowing down, their joint adventurous spirit inspired them to set sail on their 49 foot sailboat and cross the Atlantic together. It was five weeks without land before reaching Ireland then Scotland, Spain and Portugal followed by an odyssey through out the Mediterranean. It was two years before they returned to the U.S. The rest of Janets life was devoted to Phil, her family and the sea the latter pull being so strong the couple moved home to the Florida Keys. This remarkable woman was the eldest of four children in the Kennedy family of Detroit and Grand Bend, Ontario. Her physician father and well-traveled mother were so busy they allowed their early mature daughter to become the virtual "little mom" to her siblings, Mary Ann, Nancy and Hugh. This continued throughout her entire life. Janet tragically lost two children, son Scott very early in life, and recently her daughter Lynne. She is survived by all of her siblings as well as the following children, grandchildren and great grandchildren : Her eldest son Paul Alexander Gillis and his wife Mary Janet, who live in Los Angeles: their three children, Andrei, Alexander and Katy. Alexander and his wife Sommer have three children, Mary Katherine, Talulla and Ryder. Katy has one daughter, Fiona. Also surviving is son James of Naples, FL, his wife, Audrey, and children Jacquelyn, Jim Jr. and Jennifer Gillis Dreiling (husband Joel.) Jennifers children are Joseph and Jamie. On the Snoberger side of the family, Janets husband, Phil survives along with his daughter, Nancy who resides in Texas; sons Stephen who has children Scott and Sara, living in Vero Beach, FL; and son Tommy who with wife Eileen, resides in Fort Pierce, FL. Their daughters are Michelle and recently-married Valerie Snoberger Brown.

Among his references for the FKAA job are longtime Monroe schools superintendent A.J. Bookie Hernandez, and Bobby Highsmith, a Key West attorney elected to the School Board on Tuesday. Kirk Zuelch, FKAA executive director, defended the public utilitys decision to hire Acevedo. He successfully completed his judicial sentence two years ago, which was imposed by Judge [Mark] Jones five years ago, Zuelch said in an e-mail. He fulfilled all the requirements placed on him. The court did not find him liable for the theft you refer to in a written question. Acevedos new job pays an annual salary of $45,379, said Elvira Sawyer, FKAA executive office coordinator. He started work Aug. 20. The job includes full health benefits, and if Acevedo lasts eight years at FKAA, he will be vested under the Florida Retirement System Pension Plan. Acevedo has a background in information technology. Kerry Shelby, FKAA deputy executive director, said his skill-set fit the entry-level computer technician position. We didnt see we could turn him away. Shelby said there were other candidates but Randy was the bestsuited for the job. It was not clear at press time how many other candidates applied. Acevedo was sentenced to three years of probation in 2009 on three felony counts of obstruction of justice by a public official, based on his efforts to cover up his then-wifes theft. His wife, Monique Acevedo, was the School Districts head of Adult Education from 2005 to 2009. She was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2010 for stealing $413,000 from the school district, mostly by using her work credit card for personal purchases. She also stole tuition fees paid for adult education classes. The Acevedos divorced in April. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed Acevedo from office. A judge also ordered Acevedo to pay a $15,000 fine and perform community service. Monique Acevedos defense attorneys claimed her actions were caused, in part, to an untreated bipolar disorder and addiction to prescription painkillers. The scandal rocked the School District and led to the district ending its policy of electing its superintendents. Now the Monroe County School Board hires its superintendent. Asked if placing a felon on the public payroll who was convicted in connection with more than $400,000 in stolen taxpayer money was a sound choice, Shelby replied that he was not intimately involved in the decision making. FKAA executives say Acevedo paid his debt to societyFrom Acevedo, 1Asevere heart problems, with the stress of his struggling with police a contributing factor, former county Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman told the grand jury. Eimers abruptly drove away from a Nov. 28, 2013, morning traffic stop on North Roosevelt Boulevard after making several strange remarks. His PT Cruiser drove through Old Town for about nine minutes, reportedly not stopping for lights or signs. Eimers car nearly caused at least one accident, another driver told police. Eimers then drove onto the Atlantic sand beach near Southernmost Beach Cafe, where several officers caught up to him. While Eimers was on the ground, he reportedly struggled against being handcuffed. After Eimers fell unconscious, officers removed handcuffs and performed CPR until paramedics arrived and took him to Lower Keys Medical Center. Eimers died Dec. 4 when family members requested that life support be removed. No evidence from video taken by officers and a bystander at the beach, or from the autopsy, indicated that Eimers was struck by any officers Taser stun gun. There are tons of contradictory statements floating around, Higgins said. There is a suggestion that those contradictions may have been created by law enforcement as part of a defense. In particular, one officer made statements to people that I dropped like a...bomb on [Eimers] head, and We just killed someone. That officer later told FDLE investigators that he was exaggerating or joking when trying to seem like a bad ass. Higgins said as of Friday, the Horan, Wallace and Higgins law office still has not received an official copy of the 33-page FDLE report despite requests only one obtained and forwarded to the lawyers by The Blue Paper, a Key West newspaper. We have to question why that occurred, Higgins said. You would think that we would get a copy from FDLE. Lee said the Key West Police Department always planned to launch an allinclusive Internal Affairs investigation after the grand jury report was finalized. The investigation and the grand jurys findings point to some policy issues that need to be addressed, Lee said. ...Now that the criminal aspect is concluded, we will be opening an internal affairs investigation. We will look closely at any misconduct that might have occurred. This has been a difficult several months for the Eimers family, the community, and our department, Lee said. We want to again express our condolences to the family. The internal investigation is expected to move quickly and not drag on, agency spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. This has been hard on everyone, she said. Its very important to Chief Lee to heal any rift with the community and move forward. The city has filed a request to dismiss the Eimers family lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court. Attorneys for the Eimers family filed a motion opposing the dismissal. U.S. Judge Jose Martinez has not yet ruled.KWPD starts internal probeFrom Eimers, 1A ETERNITY IN PARADISEFOR YOUR FAMILYSouthern Keys CemeteryMM 10 On the GulfCall Today305-294-2528 There are 76,351 Residents in Monroe County and only 4,200 Burial Plots left. Why wait? Grand jury clears KWPD in tourists deathKey West police officers used a reasonable amount of force that was clearly justified in the Nov. 28, 2013, arrest of a Michigan man who died six days later, the Monroe County grand jury reported Wednesday.Charles Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., died Dec. 4 at the Lower Keys Medical Center, where he was admitted following a Thanksgiving Day arrest that ended on an oceanfront beach at the end of Duval Street. The Eimers family in April filed a wrongfuldeath lawsuit in U.S. District Court alleging that a dozen Key West Police Department officers used excessive force during their arrest of Charles Eimers, killing him. Police say Eimers car, P.T. Cruiser, was stopped for an improper lane change, a routine traffic violation, on North Roosevelt Boulevard at 8:25 a.m. After first cooperating with officers, Eimers began acting strangely, officers said. Then for reasons unknown, Eimers drove away against police instructions, the 10-page jury report says. Driving through residential and business areas, Mr. Eimers was observed speeding, running red lights and disregarding stop signs, thereby posing a substantial risk of injury to persons and property...in the narrow, congested streets of Old Town, the jury concluded. When Eimers stopped at South Beach at the Atlantic end of Duval, he got out of his car and obeyed officer instructions to lie on the sand. While being handcuffed, he began struggling, officers told the grand jury. The Eimers family suit contends officers forced his face into the sand, causing him to inhale sand. After the arrest, Eimers suffered medical distress and was taken to the hospital. Witness testimony from bystanders largely supports police accounts that officers did not strike Eimers head or force his face into the sand, the grand jury concluded. We also had the benefit of viewing a video from an unknown tourist which captured a portion of the incident, the report says. The officers testimony was consistent with what we observed on the video. Former Monroe County Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman told the grand jury that Eimers died of severe heart problems that had been previously diagnosed. Most importantly, Dr. Scheuerman testified that Mr. Eimers pre-existing heart condition was so poor that that he could have died at any time, even in his sleep, the report says. Grand jury members appeared to give significant weight to the testimony of a former FBI agent and instructor who has no connection to the Key West Police. The expert witness, Charles Joyner, said Eimers behavior and flight gave police reason to suspect Eimers posed an immediate threat, and that police did not use excessive force under the circumstances. The grand jury did cite serious concern about aspects of the death investigation and failure to monitor Eimers condition before he died days later. At least one officer reportedly made derogatory and inaccurate remarks at the scene of the arrest, the jury said, so the police departments Internal Affairs office should investigate and rectify that unprofessional conduct.Report concludes officers used reasonable forceEIMERS DEATHBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Create and place your Keynoter and Reporter ads online at KeysInfoNet.comA grand jury report cleared the Key West Police Department in the 2013 death of a Michigan tourist.

The council was expected to name the candidates at its Tuesday meeting, but Councilman Mark Senmartin, whos spearheading the taskforce, said he and his colleagues wanted more time to vet the proposed committee members. We didnt get a chance to talk to [candidates] ourselves, Senmartin said. It takes a couple of days to absorb the information. We should have our picks by Wednesday. Community leaders met Monday at the Marathon Government Center for an informal affordable housing summit organized by state Rep. Holly Raschein of Key Largo. With a 125-room Hyatt, a 95-room Courtyard by Marriott and an 89-room hotel planned for the Middle Keys, adequate workforce housing could soon be an issue for the area. Mayor Dick Ramsay said other potential projects are in the works around Marathon, such as a proposed Knights Key development that may need up to 100 employees. We have to work with developers and the county. We have to drag in the Department of Economic Opportunity in Tallahassee, Ramsay said. Were going to put together a task force thats going to work in conjunction with the countys task force. Ramsay said hes going to appoint County Commissioner George Nugent to the board, creating an instantaneous tie between the county and the city. Similar housing panels have been created at various bureaucratic levels in recent years, with little action taken after reports have been produced. Whatever governmental force we come up with, it needs to find solutions. If not, this is just an exercise in futility again, Councilman John Bartus said. If we dont figure out some of the solutions, were going to lose teachers, firefighters and all those things that make a community. Bartus and Ramsay agree finding solutions to affordable housing will take more than just government entities. Nonprofits like the Middle Keys Habitat for Humanity, which has built 17 homes for families since 2006, will be needed as well. Executive Director Chris Todd Young said the homes are built for about $200,000 and are often inhabited by working professionals. Theres a need for affordable rentals and homeownership, Young said. We need people to live here. Its highly important. The Florida Conflict Resolution Consortium at Florida State University was at Rascheins Monday meeting. The research group projects Monroe Countys population to decline to 70,901 by 2020 and 66,700 by 2040. FCRC reports Monroe County is the costliest of all 67 Florida counties and amongst the nation. Council requests more time to review candidatesKEYS ECONOMYBy WILLIAM AXFORD firstname.lastname@example.orgVolunteers find Cullens sailboatVolunteers this week found the sunken sailboat that belongs to a young Key Largo man who went missing in early August while on a solo freediving excursion off the Upper Keys. Noah Cullen, 24, was last seen boarding his 28-foot boat, the Jubilee, at French Reef by a dive boat captain helming a passing vessel at around noon Aug. 4. About two hours later, the Jubilee was seen sinking at Dixie Shoal by another boat crew. A frantic search by the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies covering more than 5,000 square nautical miles went on for 90 hours before being called off. But volunteers made up largely of the Upper Keys dive community, which Cullen is part of, never gave up. And on Wednesday, a piece of the puzzle as to what happened to him and his vessel that stormy afternoon was found. Its been a challenge, but Im still kind of amazed we pulled it off, Rob Bleser said Thursday. I just couldnt leave it alone. Bleser is the head of the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Departments water emergency team and owner of Quiescence Dive Center. He located the 28-foot vessel using a small remote-controlled submarine on loan from Lad Akins of Reef Environmental Education Foundation. Akins is also a member of the fire departments dive team. We try to take care of our own here, Bleser said. Using the sub, Bleser and his stepson spotted the Jubilee sitting on the ocean floor in about 300 feet of water almost one nautical mile northeast of where the boat was seen sinking. Bleser and other volunteers began searching the area on Aug. 17. Earlier this week, Cullens stepfather Jeff Cleary, Bleser and other volunteers, including Carlos Ruiz of West Marine, pinged the Jubilee using donated sonar equipment. We got a decent hit, Bleser said. The sub, called an ROV, or remotely operated vehicle, has two cameras on it. Bleser and the volunteers placed a depth gauge on one camera and a compass on the other and were able to find Cullens boat close to the area where they pinged earlier in the week. We got some pretty good shots of it, said Bleser. Video from the ROV is being enhanced by technicians with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Cullen remains missing, but finding his boat provided a small piece of closure his family has been seeking since he disappeared. Its been an amazing search, and we really feel loved by the community, Cullens mom, Tanya Cleary said.

Upon consideration, appellants motions to stay briefing are denied, the Miami-based Third District Court of Appeal said in a terse ruling Thursday. That is the best news of the day. We would have been sitting in limbo for an undetermined amount of time, said attorney Bernadette Restivo, who represents Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, two Key West bartenders who on July 17 won the right to marry in Monroe County Circuit Court. Pam Bondis stay would have caused enormous irreparable harm to the plaintiffs and others similarly situated. Every day that we move forward in this case will hopefully mean we are moving closer to ending this oppressive discrimination. Said Bondis spokeswoman Jennifer Meale: The Court has ruled that the case will move forward, and we will proceed accordingly. Monroe Chief Circuit Judge Luis Garcia declared Floridas 2008 gay-marriage ban unconstitutional, ruling against Bondi, whose office defended the ban. Despite that decision, Huntsman and Jones have not been allowed to marry because Florida law mandates an automatic stay pending appeal when a public official loses a court case. On July 25, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel also ordered that six other same-sex couples be allowed to marry, but stayed her ruling pending appeal. Bondi appealed both cases and on Aug. 7 asked the Third DCA, which has jurisdiction over Monroe and MiamiDade counties, not to hear them until after the U.S. Supreme Court decides the issue. Neither this Court nor the Florida Supreme Court can decide this federal issue with finality, Bondi wrote to the appeals court. The United States Supreme Court, however, has the final word on the United States Constitution. The U.S. Supreme Court has not yet agreed to decide whether state marriage bans are unconstitutional. In June 2013, the court threw out a key portion of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and ordered the U.S. government to recognize the Canadian marriage of lesbian Edith Windsor, a New York widow. Since then, same-sex couples have won more than 30 times in federal, state and appellate courts, according to the group Freedom to Marry. Also on Thursday, the appeals court agreed to consolidate the Monroe and Miami-Dade cases, so they can be heard together. For consistency sake, the cases are very similar, Restivo said. Were speaking out of one voice sending the exact issues up to the Florida Supreme Court. The appeals court ruling came a day after a state appeals court in Central Florida asked the Florida Supreme Court to decide the issue once and for all. The Second DCA agreed 10-3 to pass through the case of Mariama Monique Changamire Shaw and Keiba Lynn Shaw, a lesbian couple married in Massachusetts in 2010, who are now seeking a divorce in Tampa. Hillsborough County Circuit Judge Laurel Lee refused to grant the couple a divorce because state law bans samesex marriages. The state Supreme Court has not decided whether to hear the case or send it back to the appeals court. To date, three other judges in Florida have also declared the states 2008 gay marriage ban unconstitutional. On Aug. 4, Broward Circuit Judge Dale Cohen agreed to dissolve the Vermont civil union of Lake Worth art dealer Heather Brassner, whose former partner cheated on her and then disappeared. Cohen stayed the ruling, but says he will formally divorce Brassner and Megan Lade on Sept. 10 unless Bondi appeals his order (which Bondi hasnt done) according to Brassners attorney, Nancy Brodzki of Coral Springs.By STEVE ROTHAUSsrothaus@miamiherald.com IN THE COURTSEMTs did not tell police about accidentSwain County, N.C., emergency medical service responders might not have notified police that a low-lying metal cable someone placed almost hidden across a dirt path gravely injured Shane Hamilton while he was riding his ATV in the western North Carolina woods on July 3, documents shows. Nor does it appear that Swain County Sheriffs Office deputies and detectives went to the crash scene until the day after Hamilton died and two days after he was injured. Hamilton, who lived in Key Largo, died July 4 at 12:30 p.m. in an Asheville, N.C., hospital at age 45, according to a North Carolina Chief Medical Examiners Office report released this week. Dr. Robert Moffatt, the Buncombe County medical examiner, was notified of Hamiltons death around 2 p.m. that day. Moffatt examined Hamiltons body at 9:30 a.m. July 5. The cause of death: massive abdominal injuries inflicted by the cable. A toxicology report released Aug. 15 says Hamilton had no alcohol in his system. Moffatt did not return a phone call left with his answering service asking him to explain some of the statements he wrote in his report. For instance, on the Law Enforcement Agency designation slot, he wrote None! Its not clear why he punctuated the word with an exclamation point. In the summary of the report, he made a point to note: There was no police notification from reports by EMS. Swain County Sheriff Curtis Cochran said several times, including in a face-toface interview with The Keynoter/Reporter, that the matter is now civil and out of the hands of his agency. Cochran did not respond to an e-mail this week asking him if he is still not going to investigate Hamiltons death following the release of Moffatts report. But Hamiltons friends and family want to know who placed the cable along the mountaintop trail. It is connected to two small portions of two separately owned properties, and it blocks access to a third. Each property is owned by different owners, and none is talking to the press. David Breedlove, coordinator for the Swain County EMS, did not return several emailed questions about Hamiltons crash. He said in an interview on July 7 with this newspaper that he never saw a cable when he responded to the crash. Word was there was a cable, but I didnt see it, Breedlove said. But after a Keynoter/ Reporter reporter and photographer visited the scene in late July, it is clear that first responders would have had to step over the cable to get to where Hamilton landed after he flew off his Yamaha ATV. Deputy J.D. Woodard, the first law enforcement officer to arrive at the scene of Hamiltons death, wrote in his report that two days went by before he received word about the crash. He answered a call on July 5 where an ATV accident had occurred on 07/03/2014. Woodard was told by Jim Clayton, the man from whom Hamilton rented his cabin with his wife and two children, that Swain County EMS was called the day of the accident and that Hamilton was airlifted to Memorial Mission Hospital in nearby Asheville. According to Swain County Detective C.P. Poseys July 8 report, she never went to the scene of the crash but she spoke with Woodard, who told her Hamiltons family and friends were concerned the cable had been placed across the road to intentionally harm people riding the trail. Although after reviewing county maps Posey determined the crash occurred on private property, she wrote that she did not know who owns the property where Hamilton was felled. Nevertheless, on July 7 just four days after Hamilton struck the cable, with only one deputy ever visiting the scene of the crash and without seeing Moffatts report Cochran determined that the incident is considered an accident therefore no criminal action has occurred. Hamilton was in Swain County with his wife and children on vacation with the express intent of riding ATVs, his friend Mark Page said. Page and Hamilton were business partners. He owns Page Excavating in Key Largo. He said Hamilton specifically rented Claytons cabin after thoroughly researching ATV-friendly locations. Clayton told the Keynoter/Reporter he has owned his cabin for 14 years, and the surrounding trails have been ATV and hiking hotspots for as long as hes been there. He was on the trail where Hamilton crashed in January and the cable was not there, he said.

Hoover was an avid angler, and the inaugural edition of the Keynoter on Feb. 19, 1953, led with the headline Hoover fishing on the Keys. The first sentence said he is fishing for two weeks on the Keys and last Saturday went out and caught two fish in a few hours, one of them an 8-pound bonefish. He once said: Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers. He also said: Next to prayer, fishing is the most personal relationship of man.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALVote demonstratesinfluence of Key West power cabal LETTERS TO THE EDITORHealth Dept. has helmetsTo the editor: Earlier this year my 3-year-old year old and I moved into one of Marathons fine family neighborhoods. My son quickly made friends with the kids on the block and almost daily he and I ride our bikes around the neighborhood over and over again with them. Early on, I noticed that a few of the kids did not wear bike helmets. When asked if they even owned one, the answer was no. Floridas helmet law states, A bicycle rider or passenger who is under 16 years of age must wear a bicycle helmet that is properly fitted and is fastened securely upon the passengers head by a strap... I began to make a few phone calls within Monroe County and was put in touch with Alison Morales, a health educator at the Florida Department of Health in Monroe County. Although she works out of Key West, Alison met with me, my son, Noah, and one of the neighborhood children here in Marathon at the Ruth Ivins Clinic where our local health department has an office. Alison fitted Noahs friend with a brand new, free helmet and evaluated my sons helmet, an adjustable one he has had since he was 2 years old. Finding Noahs helmet too small now, Alison also gave him a new, free helmet. I would like to sincerely thank Alison Morales for her time and program. If your children are in need of a helmet, please give her a call at (305) 809-5670. She holds free helmet distribution and fitting programs throughout the Keys with one goal in mind...to keep our childrens heads safe!

Tara VanHoesen MarathonGUEST COLUMNLast past week alone 19 Haitian immigrants came ashore in Hillsboro Beach, Fla. Of those 19, one young lady died and another was taken to North Broward Medical Center. A few days before that, four men were found dead, floating 20 miles east of Hollywood. No boats were found, no one arrested, no charges brought. It is time for the Obama Administration to finally grant Haitian Reunification Parole before more immigrants die. Leaders in the Haitian community have lobbied for the implementation of a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program to no avail. This program, if ever approved, would mirror the Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program. Under the current immigration system, when an immigration petition is approved, the beneficiary living abroad may wait as much as 10 years for their number to be called before they are able to migrate legally to the United States. Under the Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program, beneficiaries of approved familybased immigration visa petitions are given an opportunity to travel to the United States rather than remain in Cuba until their immigrant visa case becomes current. The stated purpose of the Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program is to expedite family reunification through safe, legal, and orderly channels of migration to discourage dangerous and irregular maritime migration. Because of the similarities between the Haitian and Cuban community, activists have tried for years to secure the same benefits for Haitians that Cubans enjoy. Haitians suffer the same if not worse economic, social and political conditions and face the Atlantic with the same hopes and more desperation. With the 2010 earthquake, the inability of the Haitian government to stabilize, the increasing protests for elections, and now the de-naturalization of Haitians in the Dominican Republic, the U.S. governments goal of expediting family reunification through safe channels seems most appropriately applied to the Haitian community. As of now, there are more than 100,000 beneficiaries with approved family based petitions living in Haiti waiting for their numbers to be called. President Obama recently created the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals program without the approval of Congress. He also has the ability to create a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program in the same manner, but his administration has yet to do so. In an open letter to the president, the senior vice president of advocacy and policy for the NAACP, Hilary Shelton, wrote: A Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program would save lives, speed recovery and serve our values. Everyone affected is already considered legal and will come eventually, if they survive, to supporting families Establishment of a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program would simply allow these men, women, and children to wait for green cards in the United States rather than in Haiti, and if applicable they could apply for work permits so their remittance can help recover Haiti. The longer the Administration takes to act, the more families will die. This is the time to take action. The Haitian Family Reunification Parole program should be part of the presidents executive administrative immigration reform.Patricia Elizee is vice president of the Haitian Lawyers Association and a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Its unlikely that most people beyond those closely connected to local politics paid much attention to the results of the Monroe County School Board races. When voter turnout is just a shade over 27 percent, you can pretty much bet that an even lower percentage of the county is intimately connected to those races. Fair enough. Most voters today, especially in this county, are not in the demographic that typically has school-age children in the household. They also pay even less attention to the workings of the School Board. But even the general voting public recalls the Monroe County School District travesty that occurred at the hands of Randy and Monique Acevedo just a few short years ago. Youll recall that then-Gov. Charlie Crist fired elected School Superintendent Randy Acevedo in 2010 after he was convicted of three felony counts of official misconduct for covering up his wife Monique Acevedos theft of more than $413,000 from the School District. This black eye has still not completely healed and most would agree we dont ever want to re-live that embarrassment. Not to mention the collateral damage our school kids experienced as a result. So, those voters who spoke loudly at this weeks polling booths, better hope we are not setting ourselves up for another round of problems. By all accounts, both Ron Martin and Bobby Highsmith won by virtue of strong bloc voting steered by the teachers union. Those were their guys. To be fair, in this newspapers interviews with these candidates, they both presented themselves as formidable and qualified for their respective districts. Catherine Bosworth, a relatively unknown challenger to John Dick in District 4, almost pulled off a huge upset thanks to that same bloc. This is a candidate who did virtually no campaigning, but still managed to garner almost 49 percent of the vote. Outspoken reformer and School Board member Ed Davidson lobbied hard for candidate Stu Kessler because he wanted to stack the board with representatives committed to keeping the administration in fiscal check. School Board member Andy Griffiths is now the de-facto swing vote on the dais, with Davidson and Dick watching the money, wary of giving away too much to the unions. The United Teachers of Monroe, fresh off a yearlong, arduous and contentious contract renegotiation with the Monroe County School District, was clearly out to re-establish its power with this election. And it appears the union accomplished just that. Bobby Highsmith hails from the same Key West Conch-camp that kept Randy Acevedo in power for as long as it could. To say this group is friendly to the teachers union is like saying the Acevedos made some bad decisions. It will be interesting to watch how this power shift plays out. If it ultimately benefits our kids in terms of raising the county from 23rd in the state in academics, were all for it. If it results in more funding and support for our school district and a better bottom line, we support that too. But if it signals a return to that blemished past, lets say were saddened by that, but not surprised.

Haitian migrants should have same benefits ELIZEEForgive? Yes. Put on the public payroll? No. Since posting our story on the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority hiring Randy Acevedo, the former School District superintendent convicted in 2009 on felony official misconduct charges, weve received some comments suggesting he should be allowed to move on with his life. We couldnt agree more. Acevedo served three years probation, paid his $15,000 fine and did the community service sentenced to him by a judge. He deserves to find gainful employment based on his experience and academic achievements. He does not, however, deserve to ever be paid by a taxpayer-funded organization again. If a private company, or even publically-traded company, chooses to hire Acevedo, fine. Thats on them. Well never know for sure how much he knew about the actions of his wife, Monique Acevedo, when she was head of adult education for the School District from 2005 to 2009. What we do know is that she was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2010 for stealing more than $400,000 of taxpayers money. Randy Acevedo was convicted of covering up for his wife. That means a jury concluded Acevedo knew that at least some of the money that was spent paying for toys and perks the Acevedos enjoyed for years was nicked from your wallets. But somehow, FKAA brass seems to think Randy Acevedo was the best candidate from a pool of probably equally-qualified job seekers in the Keys, but ones who are not convicted felons who lived quite well off your stolen dime without issue. Rest assured. At least now you know where your money is going.

Pretty Sundresses Airy Tops Light Cotton Crops & Shorts Lots of New Summer JewelryOpen 7 DaysMon Fri 10 6 Sat 10 5 Sun 12 4 BusinessFew apply for FSU jobThe search for Florida State Universitys next president has so far attracted six new hopefuls since getting tangled earlier this year over the desire of a powerful state senator for the job. While additional resumes are expected be filed by a Tuesday deadline, it is still to be determined if any of the job seekers can fulfill 12 desired areas of focus envisioned by the schools search committee and search consultant. The areas range from enhancing the universitys academic reputation and being an energetic fundraiser to providing leadership for a highly successful intercollegiate athletics program. Jennifer Proffitt, president of the FSU chapter of the United Faculty of Florida, expressed optimism that a candidate meeting such attributes could be found to replace former President Eric Barron. Barron, an academic with a track record in fundraising, left to become president of Penn State University in April. However, Proffitt believes lobbying for the job by Sen. John Thrasher, a former House speaker who is currently chairman of Gov. Rick Scotts re-election campaign, continues to impact the search. I do not think Mr. Thrashers desire for the job itself will keep qualified academic candidates from applying; it is the appearance of the fix-is-in political cronyism that is the problem, Proffitt said in an email. The six recent applicants are in addition to Thrasher, Supreme Court Justice Ricky Polston, state Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda and 14 others who had initially expressed a desire for the job earlier this year. The search process was paused May 21 so the search committee could consider only Thrasher for the job. The move came after search consultant Bill Funk told committee members that such an irregular step was needed because Thrasher was casting a long-shadow, keeping other qualified candidates from wanting to apply for the job. But that created an outcry from faculty and students and ultimately led to the resignation of the search consultant and a reopening of the application process a month later. Trustee Ed Burr, the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Search Committee, and current search consultant Alberto Pimentel did not respond to requests for comment regarding the ongoing search. The more recent applicants range from the dean of the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California and a professor of management and business ethics at Texas A&M International University to a training specialist with Zaxbys Franchising Inc., and a Florida Department of Environmental Protection consultant. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, and a new president could be named by the universitys Board of Trustees on Sept. 23. The search committee is set to review the cover letters and resumes of all who have expressed interest in the job on Sept. 5. A whittled-down pool will be asked to come to Tallahassee for interviews Sept. 8 and 9. A smaller group of finalists would be asked back for additional interviews the week of Sept. 15, during which time the finalists would also meet with groups on campus. The committee is scheduled to make a recommendation to the board of trustees on Sept. 22. The board, which would still have to forward its selection to the Florida Board of Governors, is scheduled to meet Sept. 23. The timeline could also have an effect on a Northeast Florida Senate race in which Thrasher is seeking re-election. FSU trustees are scheduled to meet after a Sept. 20 deadline for supervisors of election to finalize general election ballots.Deadline for resumes is TuesdayBy JIM TURNER The News Service of FloridaSTATEFew interested in insurance website Last year, legislators allocated $900,000 to help Floridians find affordable health care through a new state-backed website. At the same time, they refused to expand Medicaid or work with the federal government to offer subsidized insurance plans. Six months after the launch of the states effort, called Florida Health Choices, just 30 people have signed up. Another seven plans were canceled either because consumers changed their minds or didnt pay for services. These numbers are dwarfed by the nearly 764,000 Floridians who are too poor to afford subsidized plans, yet cant qualify for Medicaid under Floridas stringent standards. They are supposed to be the target market for Health Choices. But Health Choices doesnt sell comprehensive health insurance to protect consumers from big-ticket medical costs such as hospitalization. Instead, it has limited benefit options and discount plans for items like dentist visits, prescription drugs and eyeglasses. The plans biggest backer in the Legislature blames the lack of business on the federal Affordable Care Act, which feature comprehensive plans with varying subsidies for those who qualify. Obviously we wanted more (business), but the competition is giving it away for free, said state Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach. Florida Health Choices administrators acknowledge they are off to a slow start. Their strategy is to seek new products and partners, and find out more about what consumers want. Theyre even open to selling insurance for pets if it lures customers. Were going to continue to grow and learn about our users and enhance the platform, said chief executive officer Rose Naff. Naff, who earns $126,000 a year, is one of two paid employees; the other is a $55,000-per-year administrative manager. The Florida Health Choices website costs another $1,500 a month to maintain.

Story, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Key West dominates Marathon swimmingJust before the new highschool swimming season began Wednesday afternoon with a meet between Key West and Marathon at the Florida Keys Community College aquatic center, Conch senior Marcus Brisson told his teammates, Make sure when you get out of the pool you dont have any energy left. The advice was welltaken on a hot day in a setting yards from the Gulf of Mexico. After both teams sang the national anthem beside the pools 82-degee blue-green water, the Conch boys went on to win, 132-25. The Key West girls, though pressed, also won, 96-68, to get coach Lori Boscos 18th season off to a good start. Brisson used all of his energy to win the 50-yard freestyle race in 23.07 seconds. Then he almost pulled an upset in the 100 butterfly, finishing a split second behind teammate Chris Bujak, who was first in a personal-best time of 58.36 seconds. T.J. Carbone (200 free and 500 free) and Isiah Green (200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke) were individual two-event winners for the Conch boys. Samir Mendoza-Sanchez won the 100 free and Devin Carson won the 100 backstroke. For the Key West girls, sophomore Morgan Bentley won the 200 IM in 2:28 and the 100 free in 1:01. She was also on two winning relay teams. Other winners were Kristen Reed (100 fly), Story Magidson (500 free) and Alex Lichtl (100 breast). The Marathon team, heavily laden with freshman, seventh-graders and eighthgraders, had prepared for the meet, coach Sarah Maschal, said, with 38-mile commutes to Founders Park in Islamorada because the Dolphins have no pool in Marathon in which to practice. For the Marathon girls, Noemi Fekete finished first in the 100 backstroke, breaking her school record with a time of 1:15; Abby Gracy won the 50 free in 28.28 and Audrey Matthis was first in the 200 free in 2:36. Fekete, Grace and Matthis were also on the winning 400 free relay team with Delaina Ross. For the Dolphin boys, Aaron Grube was a close second to Key Wests Carbone in the 200 free and second in the 500 free. Grube was a familiar figure at the FKCC pool, where he first swam for Marathon as a diminutive seventh-grader. Wednesday, he stood tall on the sun-splashed deck at 6 feet 3.Marathon team filled with young swimmersBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorCONCH SWIMMING Photo byBERT BUDDEKey Wests Chrs Bujak swimming the butterfly leg for the Conchs winning 200 IM relay team Wednesday. Dolphins couldnt catch Hurricanes momentumUnsettled by Marathon High Schools 25-23 win in the opening game of the new volleyball season, Coral Shores regrouped to sweep the next three games and take the Keys rivalry match Tuesday in Tavernier. The Canes were down one game and tied at 17-17 in the second before reeling off a string of points behind senior Brooklyn Irwins serving to take the game. Kills by junior Melissa Helphrey and sophomore Haley Curry and an ace from Amberlyn Casas sealed the 25-18 decision. Momentum recovered, the Canes finished with a pair of 25-17 games for a 3-1 match final. Coral Shores coach Andy Thiery credited smarter play and a lot of defensive effort. Unforced errors for our ladies had to be in the double digits in the first set, he said. It could be earlyseason jitters but thats just making excuses. Team veterans led by example in the winning rally, he said. It was definitely a step in the right direction. Marathon grabbed the opening game with Dolphin senior Johnisha Qualls scoring four kills and three aces in the deciding run. We made a lot of mental mistakes, Marathon coach Kevin Freeman said. Coral Shores played hard and we played scrappy. We were down big [in] all three final games. We came back, kind of made it close, Freeman said. But when we stopped talking to each other, we stopped playing well. Helphrey scored 16 kills and four aces for Coral Shores. Casas three blocks and six kills, while Irwin nailed five aces and four kills. Other Cane standouts were Pookie DelPino with one dig, Brittany Doyle with seven aces and Skylar DeMoss with 26 assists. Marathon junior Jordan Roney paced the Dolphins with 11 assists and six kills during the contest. Sophomore Jackie Clairmont served five aces and sophomore Rachel Philcox blocked seven shots to go with three kills. The Hurricane junior varsity edged the Dolphin JV, 2-1. The narrow tiebreaker came down to a 15-13 decision for Coral Shores. Coral Shores was scheduled to play Florida Christian in a Friday home match (results pending at press time).

The Hurricane boys, heavily outnumbered by Riviera, won four events but fell, 59-23. Lady Cane senior standout Kelsea Volland scored two solo victories, and swam with two Coral Shores winning relay teams. Volland won the girls 200-yard individual medley with a 2:24.8 time, and the 100-backstroke (1:17.67). Young Hurricane girls scored three freestyle victories: sophomore Molly Hunter in the 200-free (2:24.66), freshman Heather Loader in the 100-free, and sophomore Tori Volland in the 50-free (28.32). Coral Shores claimed first in two girls relays, the 200-medley and the 200freestyle. On the boys side, senior Evin Zekthi took first in a close finish of the 500-yard freestyle that came down to a sprint on the final leg. Zekthi clocked a 5:40.37 time, edging Rivieras Raul Peralta (5:41.59). Zekthi also won the boys 100-backstroke (1:05.06). Cane senior Rion Hunter took first in the 100-breaststroke (1:13.5), and Miles Miller, the states secondplace finisher last fall, won the 1-meter diving. Raul Cisneros, an Island Christian School senior and the entire Eagle swim team, easily won the boys 200freestyle with a 1:57.74 time, nearly 24 seconds ahead of Rivieras secondplace swimmer.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 Exhibit: The Great Labor Day Hurricane of 1935The Keys History & Discovery Center is proud to present The Great Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, the first major history exhibit produced and executed solely by the Discovery Center. The exhibit couples more than 80 historic black and white photographs with text boards featuring firsthand survivor accounts and observations by both residents and veterans. Also on display (thanks to a donation by Mike Forster) is a map indentifying the location of bodies discovered on the outlying keys that dot Florida Bay bodies were recovered as far away as Cape Sable. The map also marks each of the cremation sites where bodies had to be burned and buried, often on the spot. Additionally, the Discovery Center will also be showing the 27-minute documentary, 35 Hur ricane, The Deadly Deluge, on the centers 80-inch high-definition monitor. The program, featuring survivor interviews and historic images, also provides background material by history guru Jerry Wilkinson, president of the Historical Preservation Society of the Upper Keys. The Category 5 Labor Day hurricane blasted the Upper Keys with 200 mileper-hour winds while the storms estimated 18-feet of surge knocked Flaglers train right off its tracks. September 2, 1935, Labor Day, would prove to be the last day the Florida East Coast Railway would make the run from the mainland to the Florida Keys. Perhaps the only fortunate thing about the event was that it occurred on a holiday weekend. Untold numbers of the World War I veterans who had come to build a series of solid automobile bridges left the camps for the weekend in order to celebrate in Key West and Miami. Had it not been for that little miracle, the death toll would have been much greater than the nearly 500 souls who lost their lives as a result of the killer hurricane. Beyond the storm, the exhibit explores the rescue efforts and subsequent construction of the Red Crosss hurricane houses built for the surviving family members of the community. Also explored is the construction and unveiling of the Florida Keys Memorial. While it is true that to this point, the facility has primarily featured photography and art that have represented some historical aspect related to the Florida Keys, including successful exhibitions featuring Clyde Butcher, the Florida Highwayman and Harry Sonntag, and most recently, Millard Wells, the facilitys mission continues to be to develop and maintain a world-class History & Discovery Center that will accurately reflect the history of our Florida Keys community. Also on display at the facility is the first of our permanent exhibits, Legends of the Line, celebrating the captains, clients, and characters who were the first to develop sportfishing in the Upper Keys. While Legends of the Line has proved a great first step in the development of the Discovery Center, it takes a great deal more than fish tales to properly tell the story of the Upper Keys. Up next at the Keys History & Discovery Center will be The Rails and The Road, a historic perspective of Flaglers railroad and the many incarnations of the Overseas Highway. The exhibit is scheduled to open mid-November and run through January. The goal of the Keys History & Discovery Center is to establish a growing series of original exhibitions that concentrate on historically significant subjects relating to the Florida Keys and the Upper Keys in particular. The Discovery Center is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General Admission is $12. Admission for seniors is $10. Children 13 and under are admitted free. For more information call (305) 922-2237 or visit www.keysdiscovery.com The Keys History & Discovery Center is located on the property of The Islander Resort, a Guy Harvey Outpost. To see more historic photographs and interesting tidbits visit the Facebook page at Florida Keys History and Discovery Foundation. The exhibit would not have been possible without the cooperation of Jerry Wilkinson and the Historical Preservation Society of the Upper Keys.

Exercise-induced asthma often develops suddenlyKelly OBoyle has always been an athlete. As a child, she played lacrosse, basketball, soccer and softball. In high school, she ran track. At the University of Miami, she rows. Two years ago, when she was rowing six days a week, she noticed it was getting harder to breathe. She went to a doctor, who diagnosed her with exercise-induced asthma, a condition that affects both people with underlying asthma or without any symptoms of chronic asthma. Unless Im giving 110 percent, Im fine, said OBoyle. The condition can affect anyone, but athletes who play cold weather sports and people with asthma are a higher risk of having bronchoconstriction, or tightening of the airways, said Dr. Richard Lockey, professor of medicine at the University of South Florida and fellow at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. In OBoyles case, she wasnt rowing in freezing waters, but she was overdoing herself. I was surprised by it, said OBoyle, 20. I thought asthma was something you had as a kid. OBoyle had been seeing Dr. Lauren Fine, an allergy, asthma and immunology doctor at the University of Miami, for seasonal allergies. Fine believes OBoyle always had the condition, but it hadnt manifested itself she began the rowing regimen. Exercise-induced asthma is asthma that is triggered by active duty, Fine said. Basically, its people that have no asthma at any other time than when they exercise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 18.7 million adults had asthma in 2010, and the numbers are getting worse. In the last decade, the number of people with asthma in the United States grew by nearly 15 percent. The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology says wheezing, tightness in the chest, coughing, shortness of breath and chest pain, although rare, are possible signs of the condition, if they present themselves within five to 20 minutes after starting exercise. Fine explains that the function of the airways is to warm and moisten the air we breathe, but when it is done too fast, like during exercise, sometimes the body cannot keep up. Its like asking your air conditioner to cool your house thats over 100 degrees, 24 hours a day, she said. At some point, its going to give up. OBoyle has kept up her six-day-a-week rowing, but now uses an inhaler. We recommend that anybody that has EIA or asthma at all, exercise to the best of their comfort level three to four days a week, 30 to 40 minutes, she said. Fine says some endurance and cold weather sports, like skiing and hockey, tend to cause more problems than warm weather sports. Dr. Juan C. Martinez, 54, a pediatric pulmonologist and director of the pediatric pulmonary program at Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital in Hollywood, calls this type of sports asthmagenic. Any sport where you burst energy and then stop tends to exacerbate this condition, he said. Soccer, football, tennis all sports where you do a lot of running and then stop. Martinez said the condition is very manageable. Its probably one of the easier forms of asthma to treat, he said, noting it can be treated with medications such as Singulair and Advair. Athletes also can reduce the chances or severity of an attack by warming up before exercise and cooling down after it, says Fine.Common in sports with bursts and stopsBy MERISOL MEDINAmmedina@miamiherald.comHEALTH

Not a perfect offspring,perhaps, a trifle bland, but with enough virtues to make it palatable to audiences who want comfort food, not a challenge, when they go to the movies. Based on the international bestseller by Richard C. Morais, this sentimental immigrant tale follows an Indian familys attempts to open a restaurant in a new country after a tragedy in Mumbai. Upon arriving in the Netherlands and then weathering Britains gray weather for awhile, theyre stranded by luck in what appears to be the most beautiful place on earth, a small, impossibly gorgeous town in the French countryside. There, Papa (Om Puri) decides, the Kadams will make their stand. The idea of selling Indian cuisine to the French isnt necessarily a bad one, but stubborn Papa chooses a rundown property directly across the street from a celebrated French restaurant. Its owner, the fearsome Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren, who can be delightfully imperious in French as well as English), zealously guards her Michelin star, wielding it like a weapon at times (heaven help her cooks if they dare to serve limp asparagus). She is not a particular fan of Indian fare (Curry is curry, is it not?) and does not much care for the idea of a restaurant that blares loud foreign music directly across the street from her own establishment, which features a genteel soundtrack of murmurs, nods and pouring wine. As a feud grows between the elders, the next generation views the situation with more open eyes. Handsome Hassan (Manish Dayal), the most talented cook in the Kadam family, and beautiful Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), sous chef for Madame Mallory, fall into a fast friendship that is clearly on its way to becoming something more. But even their budding romance is compromised by their ambition in the kitchen. A sheen of fairy tale overlays The Hundred-Foot Journey, which is not surprising when you remember its directed by Lasse Hallstrom, who lately has specialized in mawkish fare (he directed adaptations of two Nicholas Sparks novels, Safe Haven and Dear John, as well as the aforementioned Chocolat). The film gives off a warm glow of good intentions from the start, making you feel churlish and cynical for viewing its upbeat take on cultural clashes with skeptical eyes, and its cast is so appealing you simply cant help but smile at times. What the film lacks, what would make it last longer in memory, is sensuality. A film that uses food and cooking as a metaphor in this case for tolerance and respect ought to have scenes that make your mouth water. But while Hassans French-Indian fusion sounds wonderful in theory, it never reaches your salivary glands. By contrast, one shot of Chef could make vegetarians swoon. Perhaps Hallstrom isnt the foodie that Chef writer/director Jon Favreau is, and thats why The Hundred-Foot Journey doesnt really linger on the palate.By CONNIE OGLEcogle@MiamiHerald.comThe Hundred-Foot Journey, rated PG, 122 minutes, playing in Key West.MOVIE REVIEW

BOAT SALES AND MARINA BOAT SALES AND MARINACaribee CaribeeVisit us: Mile Marker 81.5 Bayside Islamorada, FL 33036 | 305.664.3431www.caribeeboats.com Quick Fact:Each of us knew we had just experienced something special hooking and landing a mako shark offshore of Key West. We werent setting any FishMonster Charters records the late August morning that Robert Quirk and John Palmer from Texas joined us. Our dolphin success was at a big fat zero and the deep-dropping had been limited to just a few minuscule black belly rosefish and a mystery fish that departed around 400 feet into the electric reel retrieve. Off in the distance, we saw our regular pod of resident dolphin starting to making their way toward the Premium Time. As the chicken rig baited with bonito strips reappeared at the surface, we stopped the reel and were pulling the rig into the boat to re-bait when it happened. Capt. Seth Hopp mentioned to the anglers that a dolphin (mammal) was coming in quick toward the transom. He then changed his tone and clarified that it was in fact a very excited mako shark. It came into full view and headed directly toward our teaser hanging off the port outrigger. This development was about to change everything.The last mako shark to make an appearance behind the Premium Time was last winter as we rounded the east corner of the Vandenberg wreck just southeast of Key West. There was a large school of blackfin tuna mixed in with bonito and our trolled feathers were working well. Just after another hookup, a medium-sized (150 pounds or so) mako attacked the hooked fish and launched 20 feet into the air quickly cutting the line.This time, the circumstances were much different. The mako shark was lit up and ready to eat. Seth quickly came down from his perch in the second station and wired a heavy-duty shark rig and attached it to our 50-pound class Penn International as I peppered the water with pieces of cut bonito. He then reached into the fish box and grabbed a recently caught blackfin tuna, hooked it up and pitched it in the general direction of the excited mako. The shark instantly turned and devoured the tuna. We were now hooked up to the mako shark. The first run was blistering. Robert would be the one to start the long drawn-out battle with the shark. He was blown away by the power of the fish. One of the requests he had made for his Key West fishing charter was to hook big fish, and big is what he got. The fish sounded deep to 700 feet and settled into the battle. The first rod pass-off happened 20 minutes into the fight relieving an exhausted Robert.Angler John now had the rod and also commented on the strength of the mako. He lasted about 20 minutes until Robert was back in fighting position. I, too, elected for a turn on the rod, which was a change for me. This triple rotation lasted for more than two hours, with each of us enjoying every minute of it.The mako shark finally came close enough to touch the leader, signifying a win for the anglers. Before the release, Seth and I wanted to video the shark both under and above water for our website and Facebook page. To maneuver the fish into position, it took a constant forward motion with the Premium Time to help keep the mako at the surface. All of us took pictures and video during the process as Seth videoed underwater. The mako never seemed to tire. Finally, the monofilament leader prior to the wire rig let loose and the shark swam away, descending deep into the blue. Each of us knew we had just experienced something special hooking and landing a mako shark offshore of Key West. Capt.

In Java, a young Key Largo man who lives on a sailboat follows two prison escapees on a chase through the Everglades. The adventure features breaking a woman out of a mental facility, her subsequent kidnapping by the convicts, a threecar chase down the 18-Mile Stretch and a hurricane that devastates Key Largo.
