ROADS, HEALTH CONVERGE A television crew working on a new Florida Keys series for Netflix will keep the cameras rolling through mid-November. The 13-episode drama series was originally expected to finish in early to midOctober, but production took a break of a few weeks that will extend the overall time, said Rita Troxel, liaison for the Florida Keys and Key West Film Commission.Theyre sending in lots of film-application permits for location shooting on publicly owned property or roads, Troxel said. Everybody is working like crazy to keep up with them.No permits are needed for shooting on private property but Troxel said the production crew has been actively working with site neighbors if the stuff theyre doing has a high impact or is at night.The series stars Emmywinner Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek. Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the series, which has yet to be named, follows an island family whose secrets and scars are revealed when the black-sheep oldest brother returns home. Each episode costs several millions of dollars to make, with lots of that spread around locally, producers have said.Local shooting began in March, using Keys locations throughout the county but primarily in the Upper Keys. Studio scenes are being shot in south Miami-Dade County.We are doing 13 episodes, Netflix spokes man Karen Barragan said in a Tuesday e-mail. The series is still untitled, and it will premiere in 2015, but we havent announced anything more specific than that.In a Netflix production announcement from the spring, series creators Todd A.

With the city raising property taxes this year and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council saying it wont contribute the money, Branson worth an estimated $4.6 billion likely wont get his wish. Theyre supposed to be doing a TV show on how communities are dealing with sea-level rise, climate change, Mayor Craig Cates said Tuesday morning, prior to the City Commissions evening meeting where the monetary request was to be considered. I spoke to the producer. Our segment would be about 15 minutes. Bransons latest entertainment foray is called Todays Sustainability. In a slick media package, he calls it the first major television series dedicated to informing and educating the national and international consumer on the companies, ideas and technologies that are setting the gold standard for environmentally conscious sustainability in the 21st Century.Episode topics would include climate change, green living, travel, energy, farming, transportation, education, recycling, lifestyles and food.It would air on NBC Universal channels, which include Bravo, Style, Syfy, Oxygen and others. So what would that $14,900 get the city? A fiveto seven-minute feature about the citys efforts; an extended (up to 10 minutes) version of that feature the city could use at trade shows, for promotion and its website; a oneminute billboard commercial spot; broadcast of theBillionaire floats idea for episode of new TV showBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comKEY WESTGator, cat square off, cat gets awayA curious cat that proved too quick for a Big Pine Key alligator became an anonymous Internet star this week thanks to a wildlife camera. The 31-second video recorded Sept. 19 at the National Key Deer Refuge captures the nocturnal encounter between a feral or domestic cat, and a thoroughly undomesticated American alligator in search of a snack. Only its lightning-fast reaction saved the cat from the gators abrupt lunge.

New pizza joint comingThe west end of Marathon will have a pizzeria come mid-October when the 7 Mile Pizzeria, near mile marker 48 bayside, makes its debut. The location at 2264 Overseas Highway had housed Seaside Dawgs & Beef, which specialized in Chicago-style hotdogs. It opened in April 2012 and closed this past May. 7 Mile Pizzeria owner Angel Cabrera said he decided to make his piemaking passion a business venture after friends and family couldnt get enough of his homemade pizzas. My friends kept saying the pizza was so good and kept asking why I didnt have a pizzeria, Cabrera said. Im a chef and Ive had a long-time experience with cooking. Prior to working in the Keys at Home Depot and as a handyman, Cabrera said he owned and operated a pizzeria in Pennsylvania for seven years, where he honed his skills. Cabrera plans to have numerous styles of pizza, including thin-sliced New York, thick-slice Chicago and Cuban, a pizza with thick dough topped with Gouda and mozzarella cheese. Cabrera acknowledges pizzerias like Driftwood Pizza and Subs and Upper Crust Pizza are well established in the city, with their own styles of pizza. Marathon also has a Papa Johns and a Pizza Hut. Additionally, some restaurants make their own pizza.We have Papa Johns and Pizza Hut in the middle of Marathon but nothing in the south, Cabrera said. Were going to use the best ingredients with dough from New Jersey and cheese from Italy. Every ingredient is going to be first quality.Pizza lovers will be able to dine in, take out or have food delivered. Stromboli and chocolate key lime pie will also be on the menu. Cabrera said specials such as two slices of pizza and a fountain drink for $5 will be featured.It replaces former Chicago hot dog placeBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by WILLIAM AXFORDThe 7 Mile Pizzeria, near mile marker 48, is scheduled to open in mid-October.

Rick Scott, the Florida Board of Education on Monday approved a proposed 2015-16 budget that includes record per-student funding for public schools. The proposal is an initial step in a months-long process that will end with lawmakers passing a state budget next spring. Key Wester John Padget, a former Monroe County School District superintendent, is vice chairman of the state board. As he seeks re-election, Scott has called for the public-school funding formula to include $7,176 per student next year, the same number included in the Board of Education proposal Monday. The proposal would be a $232 per-student increase over the current year. Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand said I think we all know this is an investment in our future. It will pay dividends for Florida. If approved by the Legislature, the $7,176 perstudent total would top a previous high of $7,126 reached when former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist was in office. With Crist running as a Democrat this year to try to unseat Scott, education funding has become a heavily debated issue during the campaign.

All were charged with felony aggravated stalking. They are Shadow Franco, Miguel Herrera and Gabrielle Herrada, all 20; and Lazaro Prieto, 17. Additionally, Franco, Herrera and Herrada are charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor Prieto. The Sheriffs office says the couple, a 27-year-old woman and 26-year-old man, called the agency after they got home around 1:40 a.m. There, the woman hid out and locked herself in a boat because she was so scared, she told deputies. They told deputies they dont know the four and were at the Walgreens when the suspects drove up, cursed them out and called them faggots for having New Jersey plates on their car. That continued as they left, the couple told police. When Deputy Deanna Torres saw the car, driven by Herrada, shortly thereafter, she pulled it over in the Publix parking lot, across 53rd Street from Walgreens. Herrera reportedly said they were driving erratic and messing around but didnt mean any harm. Franco reportedly said he doesnt recall what was going on, and that he was just a back seat passenger. The minor, 17, said he was not yelling at the victims but was play-fighting with Franco in the back seat.Theyre accused of harassing, following coupleCRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff Two charged in beatingA Big Pine Key man who was severely beaten in a fight Friday night apparently was released from Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami this week.Randall Smith, 52 whom witnesses say instigated the fight sustained numerous injuries after being kicked with steel-toed boots, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. He was flown to Ryder Trauma Center following the beating.Arrested were Richard Steepy, 48, and Romis Rodriguez, 28. Both are charged with aggravated battery stemming from the incident on Enterprise Avenue, around mile marker 29.5. Deputy Becky Herrin says the three men are neighbors. She said around 6:30 p.m. Friday, Steepy and Rodriguez were working on a boat in a canal behind Steepys home. She said witnesses recounted that Smith began to yell at the two men, then picked up a handful of small rocks and threw them at Steepy and Rodriguez. Smith turned and started walking away when Steepy and Rodriguez attacked him, Herrin said. She said they punched him numerous times, even as fell down and became unconscious. Rodriguez reportedly is the one who kicked him.Marathon fightMeanwhile, the person who beat a Virginia man outside the Brass Monkey Lounge in Marathon on Sept. 13 remains at large but the victim was released from Jackson on Sept. 19 after being flown to Ryder in critical condition. The Sheriffs Office says Michael Pietsch, 28, who was in the Keys learning how to run a dive shop, was found on the concrete outside the Kmart fishing center at U.S. 1 and Sombrero Beach Boulevard around 2 a.m. after he left the neighboring Brass Monkey. He was bleeding from his head and making gurgling sounds. He had multiple brain bleeds, orbital zygomatic fractures and a spinal fracture. According to a Sheriffs Office report, some people who were in the Brass Monkey when Pietsch was there said he was drunk and causing some trouble about 20 minutes before he was assaulted. One person said Pietsch later assaulted the suspect outside, and the suspect hit back. Whoever assaulted Pietsch drove away in a white sport utility vehicle, the Sheriffs Office said. Detective Vince Weiner is investigating.

After opening Monday in the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board room, the hearing before state Administrative Law Judge Cathy M. Sellers will have state and local engineers testifying today. The hearing is scheduled to conclude no later than Thursday afternoon. No immediate ruling from the judge is expected. The Dump the Pumps group, consisting of Lower Keys residents concerned about the reliability and cost of grinder-pumps to handle sewage from the under-construction Cudjoe Regional Wastewater System, filed for the hearing to appeal the issuance of state permits. Banks Prevatt and another member of Dump the Pumps testified earlier this week. Sellers also will consider depositions taken before the hearing. Most of the 9,000 connections in the Cudjoe Regional system, which includes Big Pine Key and other islands, will be to a gravity-based network of sewer lines.Several hundred homes and businesses are slated to receive electric-power grinder pumps in more remote areas considered by project designers to be too costly for a gravity system. Dump the Pumps argues that long-term costs of grinder pumps will exceed the higher installation cost of a gravity system.Also being debated are plans to use shallow-water injection wells at watertreatment plants on Stock Island and Cudjoe Key.The Dig Deep group contends that the amount of treated effluent sent to the shallow-water wells exceeds state requirements, and says deepwater wells should be required. The deepwater wells going about 2,000 feet down are estimated to cost from $6 million to $8 million.Grinder pumps, injection wells in contentionLOWER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comDelicacy prices swellThe cost of lobster caught in the Florida Keys has surged in price, jumping from about $10 to more than $20 a pound for retail customers at some local fisheries.Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, said appetites in Southeast Asia have also spurred the hike in prices paid to fishermen. Many lobsters now are shipped across the Pacific Ocean the same day theyre brought up. The high prices are very untypical, Kelly said. Last year we had a high of $18 a pound for live spiny lobster. The price is driven in large part by China and southeastern Asia, where they still have a very robust economy.Food Export USA, a nonprofit organization that tracks global food consumption, reports American lobster sales in China totaled $28.3 million in 2013, up from $11.2 million in 2011 a 150 percent increase in two years.A report by Rabobank, a food-research company, predicts China and the surrounding region may become a $20 billion seafood import market by 2020.At the Island Fishing Co. in Marathon, the retail price of a whole live lobster started at $10.50 a pound at the beginning of the eight-month season, which started Aug. 6. Prices have now swelled to more than $20 a pound for a live whole lobster at the fish house.Were hoping the prices are short-term, manager Ryan Hafley said. Sales have been fine but its tough to keep the price in line with what people are willing to pay. Its been going up all season.At the Islamorada Fishing Co., retail prices for whole lobster are $13.99 a pound. For shipped lobster, prices rise to $54.50 for the first pound, then $6 for every subsequent pound. Lobster tail fetches $31.99 a pound retail. Shipping boats ready to set sail for Southeast Asia have occupied marinas near the Islamorada Fishing Co. all season, snatching up much of the days catch.As soon as the boats come in, theyre waiting for the lobster, said Chris Kelley, a retail associate. The Chinese are coming in and buying everything off the boat.Lobsters usually are shipped in waterless containers with close to 100 percent humidity. Lobsters can survive for roughly five days without food at 32 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, according to a shipping guide by the AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation, a trade organization.Kelly said while Keys lobster is costly right now, its likely to come down at some point. Kelly said this years harvest should not affect the lobster population available in the Keys next year.Almost exclusively, all of the lobster we harvest come from the Caribbean basin and Cuba, Kelly said. They travel up here through the Caribbean current and streams in the Gulf of Mexico. We should still have lobster so long as people in the Caribbean do not harbor egg-bearing females. Kelly believes the growing demand for lobster in Asia is good for the Keys economy even if it does boost lobster prices for locals. He cites last years harvest of 6.9 million pounds of lobster, which accounted for 6 percent of the worlds supply of spiny lobster.Were free of hurricanes and the PaV1 virus, the biggest nemesis of lobster, Kelly said. Weve developed a relationship with China and other eastern countries, and its paying off appropriately.Asian market big reason for the spikeLOBSTER SEASONBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON Were going to use the best ingredients with dough from New Jersey and cheese from Italy.

Johnson said on her Facebook page. Thousands of views and shares, hundreds of comments.Some commenters suggested the reptile must be a crocodile and the cat may be a fox or panther. No, said Finley: Its an alligator and cat.I dont think its a 6-footlong gator like some have said, Finley said. Its probably closer to four feet. The brackish Blue Hole historically has been home to a handful of alligators. At this time of year when theres been a lot of rain, they tend to move around from one wet puddle to another, Finley said. Sometimes they wind up in somebodys yard. If you leave them alone and wait, theyll usually move on. Alligators in the Keys are not normally aggressive toward humans, but the video provides evidence that pets left to roam near wildlife habitat risk meeting an unexpected end. As the video shows, alligators can be dangerous, Finley said.Wildlife cameras have become a critical tool for tracking Keys endangered species like the Key deer, Lower Keys marsh rabbit and Key Largo woodrat, Finley said.It helps us, and lets people know whats going on in our own back yard, she said.Refuge staff maintains that cats on refuge land are a danger to endangered species such as the marsh rabbit.

Among items stolen were mail, three bicycles and a scooter. Several auto burglary and theft counts were lodged. Court records say that in the 2013 case, no action [was] taken by state. Records show the 2011 cases were consolidated, so it appears he was on probation from those cases, though specifics werent available Tuesday.His father Dennis, 53, was sentenced this past summer to 10 years in federal prison (with credit for time served) after admitting he tried to hire a hit man to kill Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. Zecca never gave a reason for his actions and never implicated anyone else, although federal prosecutors say he had coconspirators.Zecca is now at the Oakdale (La.) Federal Correctional Institute, a low-security prison. His scheduled release date is Sept. 7, 2021.Zecca, a 20-year Coast Guard officer who once commanded Station Islamorada, was arrested on Dec. 21, 2012, after the hit man turned out to be a federal informant wearing a wire. Zecca had been under surveillance in a separate cocaine deal, but the drug charges were dropped in exchange for his plea in arranging Schmitts attempted murder. Schmitt helped the case by posing for a photo staged by the feds allegedly showing him shot to death.At the time, Zecca was part-owner of the Marathon Boat Yard and Marina on 11th Street in Marathon.Zeccas son in own troubleFrom Zecca, 1A J. ZECCA Cat just misses being mealFrom Gator, 1AResident: Tighten rulesSome Marathon residents contend the citys law governing short-term vacation rentals in residential neighborhoods isnt being enforced.Jean Talton is one such resident, expressing her concern to the City Council at its Sept. 23 meeting, calling violations of the vacation rental ordinance rampant.Many of the people violate the occupancy limitations, theres very poor management and insufficient parking for vehicles, said Talton, who lives on Avenue F, in the Coco Plum area. The number of vacation rentals has increased and the situation is getting worse. On my street, nearly 50 percent of the homes are vacation rentals.Under city code, registered vacation rentals can be rented for no fewer than seven days and no more than 28. There must be a 24-hour contact and that contact, the rental manager, must respond within an hour of receiving a call. Trash must be in covered containers stored off the street and rights of way. There is no limit on the number of vehicles allowed. According to a report provided by Stacy Charlton, the citys building and code department administrator, Marathon has 4,538 singlefamily homes; 497 of them are registered as vacation rentals, with eight more pending. They account for 11 percent of the citys singlefamily homes. The Code Compliance Department received 46 complaints last month, eight of them listed as taxi and vacation-rental licensing complaints. There arent that many complaints that are filed, Charlton said. When they are filed and by the time we go out there, the people are already gone.Charlton empathizes with Talton and others in similar situations but said the citys law doesnt specifically address all of Taltons concerns.Our complaints on vacation rentals are generally the number of trash cans and vehicles, Charlton said. We dont have restrictions on vehicles in the ordinance, other than extra ones are restricted past 10 p.m. Some complaints address trash; we dont have an ordinance that says you have to pick up trash cans after people leave.For Talton, capping the number of vacation rentals to 10 percent of the houses on each street might prove more effective and help cut down on complaints. If they lowered the number of rental units on the street, thered be better enforcement, Talton said. If there are people who experience friction with vacationers, Charlton urges people to contact the city at 289-4133. Call us and let us know. We look to rectify and ask people to be compliant, she said Charlton.But official says complaints are minimalBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON RENTALSMedical marijuana ads hit TVThe supporters and opponents of medical marijuana both posted their first TV ads Monday, just in time for Floridians to receive the first wave of absentee ballots in the mail. The clash is one that has played out in 23 other states plus Washington, D.C., with medical-marijuana supporters playing up the benefits of cannabis in treating cancer or multiple sclerosis while opponents target older, more conservative voters with a message about crime. They dont call it the Drug-Dealer Protection Act. But they should, says the opposition ad from Drug Free Florida Committee, which focuses on a provision in the proposed constitutional amendment that allows caregivers to handle marijuana. The supporters, People United for Medical Marijuana, concentrate on the broad outlines and promise of the amendment: Getting people the care they need without the intrusion of government. Twenty-three states now keep government and politicians out of the doctorpatient relationship. And its worked, says the ad. People United for Medical Marijuana earlier this year tapped Dennis Ward of Tavernier as its point person to gain support in the Keys. Ward was Monroe County state attorney for four years, serving before current State Attorney Catherine Vogel. Drug Free appears to be spending the most early: $1.6 million, with the likelihood of millions more to come especially from Las Vegas gambling magnate and Republican donor Sheldon Adelson. People United for Medical Marijuana hasnt disclosed how much its spending. Its chairman, Democratic donor and Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan, have promised to do what it takes to get their message out. A constitutional amendment needs 60 percent of the vote to pass. The polling average of the last major public surveys pegs Florida voter support at about 64 percent. Drug Free is concentrating on conservatives because if Republican support falls to about 40-42 percent, the amendment will likely fail even if independent and Democratic support remains in or around the 70 percent range.Polls showing voter support for amendmentBy MARK CAPUTOMiami HeraldMEDICAL MARIJUANA Former Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward posted this on Facebook on Saturday. The sign urges Keys voters to support medical marijuana. He wrote to go with the photo: Its all about the patients let the Drs decide.
Whistleblowers at a North Florida prison were punished by their bosses after exposing abuse of inmates, including an instance where one guard sprayed noxious chemicals into a prisoners mouth, according to an investigation by the states Commission on Human Relations. The Wakulla Correctional Institution case reveals a pattern that has re-emerged in recent months as the embattled Florida Department of Corrections faces allegations that it has repeatedly ignored inmate abuse and punished workers for revealing the truth.The Miami Herald has taken the lead in reporting the abuses, including an apparent inmate torture death at Dade Correctional Institute. The newspapers series of reports in recent months has led DOC to fire dozens of officers and institute a zero tolerance rule for abusing inmates.The 2011 Commission on Human Relations complaints along with records of an investigation into corruption and fraud at Wakulla Correctional Institution describe in detail the risks facing workers who try to shine light on wrongdoing within the beleaguered corrections agency and then nearly always become the subject of scrutiny themselves.Margaret Summers, a former worker at Wakulla Correctional Institution, and her assistant Anita Nichols were retaliated against for alleging that Megan Dillard, a former captain at the prison, ordered inmates to be attacked and falsified records to justify the use of force, the commission decided.The Department of Corrections settled the case in 2012, paying $25,000 each a total of $100,000 to Summers, Nichols and two former guards, Stephen Glover and Irenie Zurita, who were witnesses in their cases.Punishment for disclosing wrongdoing is part of the culture within [the Department of Corrections]. Any disclosures that go against respondent and staff are likely to be met with hostility and retaliation, Commission on Human Relations senior attorney David Organes wrote in a fact-finding report in Nichols case on Dec. 20, 2011. Disclosures of wrongdoing that eventually lead to internal investigations and criminal prosecution of high-ranking staff can make retaliation even more likely to occur, and can involve retribution from higher ranking staff.Summers, now an investigator at the agencys inspector general office, said attitudes toward whistleblowers havent changed in the three years since she was targeted by her superiors at the Wakulla institution after questioning an incident involving Dillard, at least four other guards and 10 inmates in 2011. The average Joe, they cant come forward. They cant. Not only will they lose their living, theyll be set up. Theyll be framed. Theyll be in danger. They could have an inmate go after that officer, and then when it goes out on the radio to respond, nobody comes, Summers told the News Service of Florida. For them, the decision to do the right thing is not as simple as right and wrong. It is, am I going to go home at the end of the day? Am I going to have a job to feed my family?Department of Corrections Secretary Mike Crews, at the end of a summer-long crusade to clean up his embattled agency in the wake of reports of inmate abuse and corruption, admitted that Summers was treated unfairly.Crews is defensiveBut he strongly objected to Organes characterization of a retaliatory ethos within the department. I think thats totally unfair to categorize every institution and our culture based on what you see in one, two or three cases, Crews told the News Service of Florida on Tuesday. Its not unlike what weve seen happen in the last two-and-a-half months where you have people who want to categorize everybody who works in this department for the actions of a few people. The retaliation did not stop after hours. The home and car of Glover and Zurita, who lived together, were vandalized. Their dogs were kidnapped and returned a week later injured, according to Summers. Harming or killing pets, leaving dead animals in mail boxes, and breaking into homes and vehicles are common examples of retribution against prison workers who tell on their colleagues, according to Summers and other DOC investigators. During recent visits to each of the states prisons, the secretary encouraged staff to come forward and report wrongdoing.

Then they pay monthly fees. At the same time, the Monroe County commissioners have decided to continue paying more than $340,000 per year so that a few hundred boaters do not have to pay anything. The reason stated is that some of these people would otherwise pump their sewage overboard. Therefore, to assure they do not break the law, the rest of us pay. Wouldnt it be nice if for every rule or code you did not want to adhere to, the county would simply pay someone to take care of it for you? I think we all want to stop pollution, and if the rules were simply enforced, those boaters would pay for their own sewage disposal or fill the county coffers with fines.If the county wants to spend money on boater improvement type of projects, that money could hire enforcement officers or install mooring buoys, or simply contribute that money to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and let them improve the waters or enforce existing laws. Eight-three percent of the vessels receiving pumpouts are resident liveaboards who already escape most if not all property taxes, and now the taxpayers are even paying for their sewage disposal. So 17 percent are transient boaters, some very wealthy, who now avoid supporting local marinas or pumpout services. Call and write the county commissioners and tell them to stop this giveaway of your taxes. If they tell you they get the money from some boating improvement grant, then tell them to spend the money on behalf of all boaters. Based on the Keynoter article, the Florida Clean Vessel Act provided $381,249 for these pumpouts. That means that taxpayers are being forced to pay more than $720,000 to provide free pumpouts. Jim Teague Key Colony BeachNever blame victimsAs the childrens services coordinator for the Guidance Care Center, I feel compelled to address recent comments on social media and in at least one local newspaper article regarding the runaways from the Florida Keys Childrens Shelter who were allegedly driven to Miami by a shelter staff person for the purpose of prostitution. I certainly do not know if these allegations are true and of course the young man is entitled to a presumption of innocence until proven otherwise. My issue involves the fact that some who have commented on social media and have been quoted in the newspaper have implied that the girls had a history of prostitution, as if that absolves anyone else of any guilt. I would point out that these girls have been reported as 15 and 16 years of age. If they went to the shelter with a history of prostitution, that can only mean they had previously been victimized by someone else. If the current allegations are true, they have been re-victimized. Having sex with minors is a crime. A minor who has engaged in sex with an adult is a victim. The comments and quotes referenced are a clear example of blaming the victim. In my position I see children every day who are in the system. I have never met one who was there by choice; all are victims of some circumstance and all deserve our understanding and compassion. Deborah Matthews Guidance Care Center MarathonBlessers always givingMy father always said that towns dont just happen, they are made. They are made by people who care. I grew up in a small town and for the last 35 years or so I have made my home here in our small town of Key Largo.This brings me to my reason for writing. The reason is to recognize one of the people to which my father was referring. That person is Rob Blesser. Anyone who knows Rob is aware of the laundry list of contributions he has made to our community. As a decadeslong dear friend of mine, I know very well the countless hours he has given along with his experience, resources, connections and dedication. His latest contribution has been in locating and documenting the resting place of Noah Cullen and his sailboat Jubilee Through the aforementioned experience, resources, connections and dogged determination, Rob Blesser took on a tragic mystery and ultimately gave Noah, his family and all of us, some sense of closure and the comfort that comes with knowing. On behalf of everyone who lives in and loves our small town, I want to thank Rob Blesser. As my father always said, towns dont just happen, they are made. They are made by people who care. Thank you, Rob, for being that guy. James Van Fleet Key LargoBeach is looking greatThanks to the more than 40 people who volunteered their Saturday morning Sept. 20 to help clean up the public (National Key Deer Refuge) portion of Long Beach on Big Pine Key as part of the 2014 International Coastal Cleanup.At 9 a.m., Long Beach was a complete mess, full of plastics and other hazards to wildlife; by noon, it was beautiful and free of debris.A special thanks to our local youth groups and their leaders: Key West High Schools Navy Junior ROTC, Girl Scouts Troop 702, Friends and Volunteers of Refuges volunteers and the heroic Big Pine and Lower Keys residents. It is amazing to see what we can accomplish when we work together; our beach looks fantastic. If youve never been there, please get outdoors and enjoy it. Thanks again to all those involved.Kristie Killam, ranger National Key Deer Refuge Big Pine KeyEnough tax increasesThis is the real 2020-2040 prediction. Im not talking about climate change; thats false. No, at the rate our local, state and national governments continue to raise taxes 2 percent here, 3 percent there every year for various reasons.The taxpayers will be paying everything to the government and the lowest-paid people on the government dole will be at $100,000 and still be calling for a raise and other spending. They pull on us so we wont have money to go out with friends. No entertainment, either. So enjoy your free money. By then we wont have anything unless some miracle comes. Look at our insurance on homes and health care skyrocketing every year lately. Well, well see what happens in 2020 and 2040. Chris Dennis MarathonIn South Florida, four counties, including Monroe, are already addressing itAs the planet warms, some U.S. cities will fare better than others and might see climate change migrants moving there. Thats the contention of a New York Times story last week in which scientists predicted that regions such as the Pacific Northwest and even Alaska will be more attractive as the consequences of climate change become more pronounced. The news isnt so good for the Sunshine State, according to University of Washington atmospheric sciences professor Clifford E. Mass. As sea levels rise in the decades ahead, if theres ground zero for where you dont want to be, Florida is it, Mass said. Yet as the Times reported, that hasnt stopped people from moving to Florida.What we see is that people are actually moving into harms way, said Thomas Peterson, principal scientist for the National Climatic Data Center. Theyre moving from relatively safe places in the Midwest to places along the Florida coast, where the risk has been increasing.Last weeks United Nations climate summit featured some progress in addressing climate change, but also showed that state and local officials cant wait for world leaders to act. As the Times story suggested, Florida faces some of the nations most significant challenges in the decades ahead. A warming planet and rising sea levels pose a particular threat to an already scorching state where 80 percent of residents live or work in coastal counties. Yet Floridas most prominent political leaders refuse to even acknowledge climate change is real, much less start planning for it. After being criticized for initially declining to do so, Gov. Rick Scott last month met with five of Floridas top climate scientists. They explained to him that the state faced such threats as 2 feet of sea level rise as some projections have happening by 2048 swallowing much of Miami-Dade and Monroe counties and nearly all of the states barrier islands. Coincidentally, representatives in a four-county compact Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach formed five years ago to address sea-level rise and climate change regionally meets for three days beginning today in Miami Beach. Floridians cant afford to wait to plan for climate change. If officials are going to sit on their hands, it is up to average citizens to join with researchers in planning for rising temperatures and sea levels in our particularly vulnerable state.

Its a topic that has attracted record-setting public attention. The agency received 3.7 million comments on the subject more than double the number filed to the regulatory agency after Janet Jacksons infamous wardrobe malfunction at the 2004 Super Bowl. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, a former industry lobbyist and venture capitalist, says financial arrangements between broadband providers and content sites might be OK so long as the agreements are commercially reasonable and companies disclose publicly how they prioritize Internet traffic. But not everyone agrees, with Netflix and much of the public accusing the FCC of handing the Internet over to the highest bidders. Some questions and answers about the concept of so-called net neutrality.What is it?What is net neutrality? Net neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers shouldnt block, manipulate or slow data moving across their networks. So long as content isnt against the law, such as child pornography or pirated music, a file posted on one site will load generally at the same speed as a similarly sized file on another site. Proponents say this concept is critical to encouraging innovation and competition because it means anyone can connect to the Internet and provide a service or content without having to get permission from broadband providers or pay extra.But free InternetNot everyone agrees on how to define it. Major cable and telecom companies that sell Internet access often tout the benefits of an open Internet, saying they would lose business if their customers tried to access popular content and couldnt get it. Another problem would be retaliation. Verizon subsidiaries, for example, regularly send traffic over the networks of rival Internet service providers. It doesnt want to block or slow traffic any more than it wants to see its own traffic blocked or slowed, company officials have told regulators. Having said that, Verizon and other broadband providers also want to ensure they have flexibility to think up new ways to package and sell Internet services. They say thats only fair, considering they are investing hundreds of billions of dollars into a network infrastructure that, so far, has prospered without much government intervention. How they would use that flexibility, though, isnt entirely clear.Why now?Last January, a federal court overturned key portions of an open Internet regulation put in place by the Federal Communications Commis sion in 2010. The court said the FCC had failed to cite any statutory authority to keep broadband providers from blocking or discriminating against content.That ruling sent the FCC back to the drawing board. Until the FCC can agree on new regulations that satisfy the courts requirements, Internet service providers could block or discriminate against content moving across their networks with impunity.Whats on table?Last May, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler released a proposal that leaves the door open for paid agreements between Internet service providers and content providers also called paid prioritization so long as the agreements are commercially reasonable. Wheeler says the FCC would step in if broadband providers act unfairly, such as providing favored access to a subsidiary.Wheeler said he was trying to follow guidelines suggested by the court, and invited the public to comment on whether these paid arrangements should be banned altogether.Internet activists dont like the idea because they say it gives too much power to Internet service providers and would create fast lanes. They say the FCC should reclassify the Internet as a public utility under Title II of the 1934 Communica tions Act to ensure it has enough power to regulate the Internet effectively.Title II classification is exactly what Verizon and other providers dont want. They say it would subject them to onerous regulations that would stifle investment into infrastructure at a time when the Internet is still growing.Some Democrats have proposed legislation that would ban paid prioritization outright.What happens next?The FCC is still sifting through the record-setting 3.7 million comments filed by the public before the Sept. 15 deadline. In the meantime, the agency is hosting several roundtables to hear from stakeholders, and lawmakers have convened hearings in Congress. One big question is whether the FCC will subject mobile networks to the same rules. The FCCs 2010 rules for an open Internet only applied to wired Internet access and exempted mobile networks. But that might not make as much sense considering the explosion in wireless devices in recent years. While FCC officials had hoped to wrap up the issue by years end, the large public response is likely to push any decision into next year.Supporters say Internet firms dont need helpBy ANNE FLAHERTYAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSProtesters demonstrate across the street from the Comcast Center Sept. 15 in Philadelphia. Demonstrators expressed opposition to the proposed merger of communications companies Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc., and called for further Federal Communications Commission regulation of Internet traffic to support net neutrality.BUSINESS BRIEFSThe La Concha has new managerThe 160-room La Concha Key West on Duval Street has a new general manager in Michael Weber. He replaced Steve Keup, though the hotel management didnt say why or where he went. Most recently, Weber guided the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina in Bimini, Bahamas, through a renovation and expansion. He also has managed the Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort in Grand Bahama and the il Lugano Luxury Suite Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. He also has managed the Chesapeake Resort in Islamorada. Study: Were squeezed moreThe picture painted by a report from the Center for American Progress released Sept. 24 is gloomy.For a typical married couple with two children, the combined cost of health care, day care, housing and savings for college and retirement jumped 32 percent from 2000 to 2012 after adjusting for inflation. Average income barely rose in that time once you factor in inflation.The figures marked a sharp change from the preceding 12 years ending in 2000, when average income for a four-person family rose 20 percent, after inflation, and college and health-care costs rose more slowly.Heres how costs have grown in some key categories:Health carePremiums and deductibles are higher than they were about a decade ago. And more people are paying them. Average out-of-pocket health care costs for a family of four with an employerprovided health plan jumped 85 percent to $8,600 a year from 2002 to 2012, according to the CAP report. The figures are adjusted for inflation and are for preferredprovider organization plans, which restrict coverage to certain doctors. Only half of Americans who obtained health-care coverage through their jobs had faced deductibles in 2002, according to the nonprofit National Institute for Health Care Management. By 2011, that figure had reached three-quarters. Americans must channel more of their take-home pay to medical care: Health care spending in the United States rose from an average of 5.4 percent of all spending in 2000 to 7.1 percent in 2013, according to Labor Department data. The increase from 1989 to 2000 was much smaller: From 5.1 percent to 5.4 percent.Higher edThe average amount a middle-class family with two kids must save for college education even after you include grants and other aid jumped 39 percent from 2000 to 2012 to $5,300, the centers study says. Thats based on costs for four-year public colleges. Tuition and fees at those institutions soared 86 percent, adjusted for inflation, from 2000 to 2012. That was much sharper than the 52 percent rise in the preceding 12 years, according to data from the College Board.One reason those costs have skyrocketed is that state aid to higher education has tumbled 24 percent in the past decade on a per-student basis, the College Board says. Thats forced students to bear more of the cost.Child careChild care costs for a family of four have soared an average of 37 percent in the past 12 years and now exceed the typical cost of renting a home in every state. Census data point to a long-term trend: Average weekly child care costs for families with working mothers, adjusted for inflation, jumped from $84 in 1985 to $143 in 2011.HousingFor the typical four-member family, housing costs have jumped 28 percent in the past 12 years, the centers report finds. That partly reflects higher home prices, which have rebounded sharply since the Great Recession. As a result, the number of new mortgages issued fell to a 17-year low this spring.Renters also face higher costs. More than half of renters spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing the level above which the government considers housing to be unaffordable.Less savingThose trends have made it harder for middle-class families to save and build wealth. For families in the middle 20 percent of incomes, median net worth fell 17 percent to $55,400 in 2013 from $66,600 in 2010, according to the Federal Reserves latest Survey of Consumer Finances. Net worth equals the value of homes, savings, investments and other assets minus mortgages, credit card and other debts.Just about all basic costs have risen since 2000Associated PressCONSUMERSFor the typical four-member family, housing costs have jumped 28 percent in the past 12 years, the Center for American Progress report finds.

Unincorporated Monroe Countys Lower Keys franchise hauler Waste Management of Florida Keys, anticipates distributing 11,000 wheeled, blue, 65-gallon recycling carts (with attached lids) to residents by October 1, 2014. The wheeled carts can hold three times as much recycling as the 18 gallon bins currently distributed by Waste Management, and will still be emptied once a week by the hauler, on your current recycling day. Gone are the days when you had to use a cardboard box as a recycling bin after your holiday parties. Communities using the wheeled carts have increased participation and volume by an average of 30%. This is a win-win for everyone, said Roman Gastesi, County Administrator. Becoming a greener community is not only good for the environment, but it also helps us further our commitment to manage costs by recycling more and sending less recyclable materials to the Waste to Energy Plant. Further, there will be no additional cost to our residents.HOW WILL THE 65-GALLON CARTS BE DISTRIBUTED?Residents will receive home delivery, and they can start using the carts immediately,said Greg Sullivan, Sr. District Manager, Waste Management of Florida Keys. Also, residents will have the option of returning the old 18 gallon bins to Waste Managementor keeping them to put additional recyclables out.WHAT GOES IN THE CART?A graphic on the lid will serve as a guide as to what can and cannot be placed in the cart. As avid recyclers may remember, in 2009 Monroe County implemented Single Stream Recycling. This means that all recyclables are mixed together in the same cart including: plastics 1-7 (including emptied plastic milk and juice jugs, detergent and fabric softener containers), metal and aluminum cans, newspapers and inserts, junk mail, magazines, catalogs, soft cover telephone books, brown paper bags, corrugated cardboard, cereal boxes, office paper, file folders, emptied milk and juice cartons, clean glass bottles and jars.WHAT IF SOMEONE TAKES MY CART?Each cart is equipped with its unique serial number. Waste Management suggests that each recipient of a cart, as a precaution, write down the serial number in a safe place in case their cart is lost or placed at another residence in error. If your cart is lost you will be able to call Waste Management, give them the serial number and they will be able to retrieve the cart, and return it to its rightful owner. If your cart can not be located within seven days, it will be replaced at no cost to you. County Rolls Out New Recycling Carts in the Lower Keys Customers are asked to call Waste Management at (305) 296-2825 or Monroe County at (305) 745-4307, if they have any questions or need more information.

Marathon High Schools football Dolphins got their first win of the season Friday on home turf, beating Greater Miami Charter School 29-6. Key changes from past games included switching Max Elliot from quarterback to running back and having Jackson McDonald step up as quarterback, sparking the Fins offense. McDonald proved he had the arm the team needed, passing for 100 yards. Jackson did a great job for his first varsity start, coach Paul Davis said. He was nervous at the beginning, but settled down and executed the offense to almost perfection. Elliot rushed for two touchdowns and Victor Coleman and McDonald each ran for one. The Fins defense kept the pressure on Greater Miami with two sacks from Tommy Lancaster and a forced fumble from Camron Chaplin. Richie Wells had a tackle for loss in the end zone, resulting in a safety. Defensively, we wanted to put a lot of pressure on the quarterback and make him uncomfortable, Davis said. Camron made an athletic play on defense while the quarterback was scrambling and was able to strip the ball and recover the fumble. Davis called the victory a win that everyone needed, the players and the fans, after losing the first three games of the season. Marathon (1-3) will travel to the mainland Thursday to play Miami Country Day, which is 1-4 record. Country Day beat Marathon earlier this month, 17-14. Davis believes the Dolphins can keep the wins rolling but knows it wont come easy. So far this season, the Dolphins have been able to close down the scoring gap from the 50-0 opening loss against Boca Raton Christian to last weeks 21-7 loss against Pompano Beach. Our focus this week is to stay humble and hungry, Davis said. The win was great but we need to continue to work hard to improve and keep this winning streak going.

Story, 3B Canes now at 4-1A relentless ground game combined with a stout defense to earn Coral Shores High its fourth victory of the football season, 17-3, on the road Friday at Florida Christian of Miami.We ran inside on them with Eddie Dunn. When [Florida Christian] loaded the box, we ran outside with George Jacobsen, Hurricane head coach Ed Holly said. Thats what we do.Jacobsen raced for 218 yards on 14 carries, and Dunn battered the middle for 34 yards on 15 tries. The Hurricanes stand at 4-1 in Southeastern Football Conference play heading into this weeks homecoming game against Arch bishop Curley (0-5). Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. Friday at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium in Tavernier. The game truly will be homecoming for the Canes after traveling for three straight road games. Coral Shores played as the homecoming opponent in the past two weeks, against Benjamin School and Florida Christian, and both times rained on the host teams parade with a win. Now we have to keep reminding our team that with everything else going on for homecoming week, theres a football game to play Friday, Holly said. The Hurricane defenders, coached by coordinator Jack Niedbalski, played a whale of a game against Florida Christian (2-3), Holly said. The Patriots were kept out of the end zone and limited to 120 rushing yards as Cane inside linebackers Dunn (10 solo tackles) and Ariel Correa (eight stops) led the charge. Outside linebackers Brian Cash and Brian Gonzales effectively guarded against the Patriots outside runs while defensive tackle Dontae Jiovenetta made four stops in the trench.

Oxbridge swamped the Conchs, 43-12, in Key Wests Gold Coast Football Conference debut. It was a startling reversal for the Conchs, who had opened the season 3-0, outscoring opponents by an average of 41-8. Hughes said Monday that he believed the game was something of an aberration. Obviously, theyre very talented, but we made them look better than they are, Hughes said. We made mistakes that are correctable and we didnt execute. But we werent overpowered like we were against some teams last season. Some of the mistakes were made by senior quarterback Andrew Freeman, who dropped four snaps from center and threw two interceptions while completing only three passes. He struggled, Hughes said. Oxbridge (2-0 in the league) displayed a no-huddle offense led by quarterback Angelo Navaroli, who completed 13 passes, and running back Travis Homer, who gained 180 yards. Key West, which trailed 14-0 at the half, fell behind 21-0 when Homer scored on a 65-yard run early in the third quarter. The Conchs cut it to 21-6 on an 80-yard TD run by Mehki Sargent. That was the only big running play of the night for the Conchs, who had plenty of them in their first three games. Hughes blamed that on poor blocking techniques. Late in the fourth quarter, Freeman went out with a sprained ankle and was replaced by Christian Luna, who threw a 16-yard scoring pass to Sargent on the last play of the game. Freeman is expected to play Thursdaynight when the Conchs play a 7 oclock league game at Pembroke Pines Charter (1-4, 1-1). Hughes said he hopes to get a second shot at Oxbridge in the league playoffs in November.Football team loses its first game of yearBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorOXBRIDGE 43, KEY WEST 12Dolphin bite slowing downAs we transition into fall fishing patterns, we have multiple venues offering great catching.Off shore, dolphin fishing is like looking for a needle in a haystack, but its well worth the search. There are lots of fish in the eightto 10-pound range and even 25-pounders are common. Theres not much pressure on this fishery right now. Find a weed line and youll be able to work it for miles without seeing another boat. The blackfin tuna bite at the humps is intermittent but, again, worth the effort as the fish being caught are on the large side at 10 to 20 pounds. Live baits work best.The most consistently productive area is the reef, with yellowtail snapper as the main player. The best depths are 50 to 80 feet. The tails average 15 to 18 inches and will take the usual assortment of cut baits. Be sure to use copious amounts of chum.The reef, wrecks and patches are coming alive with increased populations of grouper, cobia and cero mackerel, all signs of good fall fishing to come.

Saturday morning, Key West High senior Everett Wagner ran the 3.1-mile cross-country course at the Key West Golf Club faster than any Conch ever had. In winning the three-team boys race of the Key West Autumn XCursion, Wagner came in with a time of 17 minutes, 54 seconds, which broke the record of 18:01 that had been held for 10 years by Zack Black. When he was 100 yards out and saw the clock, he went into an all-out sprint, said Key West coach Terence White. Wagner led the Conch boys to first place, ahead of West Orange and Spruce Creek. Their average time of 19:12, despite a wet course, was the second-fastest Key West time on the course in school history. The next Conchs to finish were Jerry Burgess, who was sixth in 18:55; Leif Cisneros (ninth,19:34); Bobby Black (10th, 19:42); and R.J. Southwell (12th, 19:55).Coral Shores runners were at the meet but there werent enough to constitute a team.

She edged teammate Jane Welzien, who was 14th in 24:26.

It was under sweaty conditions that Key West High and Coral Shores met at 9:30 Saturday morning as part of a four-team tournament. The day before, the Kim Butler-coached Conchs and the Andy Thiery-led Hurricanes had defeated University and lost to Palm Beach Central. Now, the Conchs were trying to avenge an early-season loss to Coral Shores.The first game was close early, but then the Hurricanes Melissa Helphrey took over with her kill shots. Late in the game, she proved that she isnt just a hard hitter by guiding a medium-speed shot just out of the reach of four Conch defenders that made it 23-14. A kill by Haley Curry and a Conch error closed out the game.The Conchs won the second game, 25-18. A kill and an overhead shot by Sarah Pike got Key West even at 10-10 and, later, a tip shot by freshman Keely Butler and a service point by Emily Kailian increased a Key West lead to 18-15. The Conchs went on to score the games last five points for a 25-18 victory, which set up a deciding game to 15.That game was dominated by Coral Shores, which rode the hitting of Helphrey and the serving of Skylar De Moss. Leading 13-7, the Hurricanes got the final two points when Brooklyn Irwin followed up her tip shot with a spike on a perfect set by De Moss.Melissa Helphrey has really elevated her game, Thiery said. Shes mixing up her shots and playing with controlled aggression on every point. There were still two games left. The Hurricanes lost to tournament winner Palm Beach Central, 25-21, 25-23. They led, 23-20, in the second game, but then became rattled and Central ran off five consecutive points. Coral Shores went home with a 7-8 record. Thiery commended Brooklyn Irwin for her defensive effort, saying the senior captain played as hard as I have seen.Sophomore libero Delaney Hoag continued to improve with spot-on passing, said the coach. Brittany Doyle served 15 straight points in the win over University.Key West finished with another win over University to go to 3-7.BY DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP VOLLEYBALLDolphins sweep WestwoodThe volleyball Lady Dolphins are back to winning after a Friday match at Marathon High School against Westwood Christian, winning 25-19, 25-19, 25-9. Marathon is now 9-3. The team traveled to Key West Tuesday (score not available at press time). Earlier this month, the Dolphins beat the Conchs in five games.Of the Westwood Christian match, Marathon coach Kevin Freeman said, The nightbefore [against Archimedean High School], we lost five in a set but didnt have much time to think about our streak going awry. We came out and played hard.Fridays scores reflect the Fins toughness, with Sydney Konrath scoring seven aces, five assists and nine kills. Also dominating was Jordan Roney, who had five aces, 13 assists and five kills. Baelee Pettry stood out, too, with three aces and nine digs.The match started with Westwood Christian giving Marathon a fight. But that had dwindled by the third game.The girls werent as focused as Id like them to be in the first game, said Freeman, who saw his team start to relax by the second game. The third game wasnt really too much. We could feel like we could get the win and didnt give them the opportunity to win or come back.As for Key West, Freeman calls the Conchs, 3-7 following a weekend tournament, his teams biggest rival.Its always fun to play them down there, the coach said.

Rolled up in a cinnamon bun. Do we have your attention yet? Thats right: We took our autumn baking to a delicious new level by combining two classics, then topping them with an intensely good homemade caramel sauce spiked with flaked sea salt for added oomph and to contrast to all that sweetness. When slicing the log of dough into individual buns, a serrated knife works well. You also can use unflavored, unwaxed dental floss (or heavy thread). To do this, hold a length of floss (about 15 inches or so) by both ends. Slide the floss under the log and move it down to where you would make the first cut. Now lift both ends up over the dough log and pull in opposite directions across the log to slice through. Repeat with the remaining rolls. The ingredients for the dough:Three tablespoons granulated sugar.One teaspoon kosher salt.One and half cups of milk, warmed slightly.Four tablespoons (half a stick) unsalted butter, room temperature.Four cups all-purpose flour.One tablespoon instant yeast.Half a teaspoon ground cardamom. For the filling:Two ounces cream cheese, room temperature.A third of a cup canned pumpkin.One egg white.Half a teaspoon ground dry ginger.Quarter of a teaspoon ground nutmeg.Quarter of a teaspoon cinnamon. For the glaze:Three tablespoons butter.One and a quarter cups packed dark brown sugar.Half a cup light cream.One teaspoon cinnamon.One teaspoon vanilla bean paste.Half a teaspoon flake sea salt. To prepare the dough, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine all ingredients and mix on low until the dough is soft and elastic, about eight minutes. Alternatively, the dough can be mixed by hand. If so, in a large bowl combine all ingredients but start with two cups of the flour, then slowly work in the remaining two cups as the dough comes together. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead several times. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 15 minutes. Once the dough has rested, use a rolling pin to roll it out into a 12-by-18-inch rectangle. If the dough shrinks back, allow it to rest a little longer before continuing. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-by-13inch baking pan with cooking spray. Alternatively, line a rimmed baking sheet with kitchen parchment and coat with cooking spray. To prepare the filling, in a medium bowl use an electric mixer beat together the cream cheese, pumpkin, egg white, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. Spread the pumpkin mixture evenly over the rolled out dough going all the way to the edge except on one long side (leave one inch of that long side bare). Starting with that side, roll up the dough into a log like a jelly roll, pinching the sides to seal. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 12 rounds. Arrange the rounds in the prepared pan. If using the 9by-13-inch pan, the buns will touch. If using a baking sheet, the buns can be spread out (and will cook slightly faster). Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until slightly puffy, about 20 minutes. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown and the buns reach an internal temperature of 190 degrees. While the buns bake, make the glaze. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, cream and cinnamon. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in the vanilla bean paste and salt. When the buns are cooked, immediately drizzle all over with the caramel.
