Story, 1BPermit hikes kick in, anger ensuesThe cost of applying for a building permit in unincorporated Monroe County rose significantly this month, which has not gone unnoticed by property owners, contractors and permit pullers. Using a single-family home valued at $200,000 as an example, county officials say total permit fees to build that house have gone from $6,003.64 before to $9,202.23 now that a new fee schedule became effective Oct. 1. Christine Hurley, director of Monroe Countys Growth Management Division, said the increased fees were adopted to boost revenue in the countys Building Department fund, which operated at a loss between 2010 and 2012. The fund has been built back up since then through expense cuts, but which in turn slowed the pace of permit delivery, Hurley said to her staff in an internal memo. In 2014, permit application volumes began to pick up significantly, which meant more staff needed to be hired. The new fee schedule, Hurley said, creates a system that for the first time is selfsupported and does not rely on property and sales taxes, meaning the users of permitting are the ones that pay for it. The fee schedule, based on the value of each proposed development, was calculated by consultants and passed by the five-member County Commission on March 19. Hurley said developing the fee structure took two years with six public meetings so contractors and permit applicants would not be caught off guard. But many of those affect-County says Building Department had operated at a loss for three yearsHOUSINGANOTHER TOUGH GAMEBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comClaw harvest starts on WednesdayWhen it comes to claws, there could be cause for cheer. Stone-crab season opens Wednesday, with commercial fishermen seeking the legal-size claws that rank as Monroe Countys most lucrative harvest after spiny lobster. No one ever knows for sure until the first pull of the season, but we do have some things that are looking good, Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, said Friday. A strong season would be welcome since the two previous crab seasons were below average and bleak, respectively. The 2013-14 season could have been less than 2 million pounds, which is 30 percent below the typical historic season of about 3 million pounds, according to estimates. Many fishermen survived financially only because customers were willing to pay record-high prices for the claws, Gary Graves of Marathons Keys Fisheries said at the seasons end in May.

Story, 1BBids for city hall wide-rangingMarathon officials are reviewing six bids to build a new city hall, and they range $1 million apart from the lowest to the most costly. City staff opened the bids Tuesday. A committee is vetting the construction companies with the aim of presenting options at this coming Tuesdays City Council meeting, at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Two of the companies are based in the Keys and four are from the South Florida mainland. The lowest one is $4.28 million and highest is $5.24 million. Public Works Director Carlos Solis said the final bid price could fluctuate, depending on which options are included or deducted from the final construction plans. We left ourselves enough options to say well, this is not super essential so we can deduct certain items, Solis said. We have about 14 alternative items we can deduct from the contract. The six bidders: MVP Contractors of Pompano Beach: $4,288,717. Pedro Falcon Contractors of Big Pine Key: $4,290,000. Burke Construction of Doral: $4,634,761. Botsford-Overholt Co n struction of Marathon: $4,986,942. Emerald Construction of Dania Beach: $5,018,236. West Construction of Lake Worth: $5,247,048.2 Keys companies among six bidders for the projectMARATHON3rd charged in Ponzi schemeExecutives of the former Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas declared in sales pitches that investors could Retire Rich and Young in Paradise, but many investors found themselves in financial purgatory, federal prosecutors charge. False promises [of guaranteed income] were made to investors with regard to dilapidated properties for which Cay Clubs did not have the financial ability to make the promised improvements, say charging documents filed Wednesday against Barry J. Graham, Cay Clubs former director of sales. Graham, a 59-year-old Fort Lauderdale resident, was charged with a single count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud. A conviction would carry a maximum prison sentence of five years, plus forfeiture of any assets Graham acquired through his Cay Clubs dealings. Graham is the third highranking Cay Clubs executive to be hit with federal charges in recent weeks stemming from the collapse around 2008 of Cay Clubs. The feds have called it a $300 million Ponzi scheme. Cay Clubs founder Fred Davis Dave Clark, 56, and his wife, Cristal Coleman Clark, 41, were charged in September with bank fraud and conspiracy connected to the alleged Cay Clubs Ponzi scheme, a statement from U.S. Attorney General Wilfredo Ferrer says. One of Grahams overt acts cited in the 11-page information took place during a March 2007 investors meeting at Sombrero Resort in Marathon, a Cay Clubs property. Graham reportedly told investors that Cay Clubs had undertaken development activities for that project ... when he knew that Cay Clubs did not have the financial ability or specific plans to develop the project at all. Even as Cay Clubs financial plan was crashing, the federal information says, Graham and others tried to lure new investors by making false and misleading statements, including by concealing Cay Clubs failure to convert dilapidated properties into luxury resorts. Graham, during his three-year work as Cay Clubs sales director, conspired with others to fraudulently inflate the prices of Cay Clubs units through insider sales, according to the U.S. Attorneys Office.

Published Keynoter 10-8-14, 10-11-14 Clerks employee charged with stalkingA court traffic clerk in Marathon was suspended from her job Thursday following her Wednesday arrest on a charge of misdemeanor stalking. Leslie Brooks, 50, has since been released from jail on $1,000 bond. According to an arrest report written by Deputy Michael Sielicki from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, Brooks sent numerous harassing letters possibly 11 to Deborah Fisher, also of Marathon, from Feb. 16, 2013, until Oct. 5, 2013. Investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcements crime lab resulted in Brooks latent fingerprints being found on at least one of the unsigned letters. Each letter implicated that Deborah was a drug user and was having an affair, Sielicki wrote. This is not the first runin with the law for Brooks, whos been employed by the Monroe County Clerk of the Courts office since September 2011 and who earns in the mid-$30,000s annually. On Aug. 23, she was charged with driving under the influence. That case is pending.

His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.MEDIA CAVEed say they were not only caught off guard, but were blindsided by the increases. Ive been to the Murray Nelson [Government and Cultural Center] a half a dozen times over the past year, and nobody ever told me about it, said a Key Largo property owner who did not want to be identified. The owner said he applied for a permit to build a single-family home in 2009. This summer, on July 31, he received a letter saying his permit was ready and he could pick it up anytime until April 5, 2015. He said he went to the Nelson Center to pick up the permit Tuesday and experienced sticker shock. Instead of the $2,000 bill he was expecting, which was on the letter, he was told to pay $10,250. I dont know what happened, the owner said Thursday. Im in complete shock. County staff said they calculated the fee by estimating the value of the mans home at $421,820. I have no idea how they came up with that number, he said. I never submitted a written contract. On top of the increased fees, contractors were also surprised this month when they discovered a newly added $10-per-page fee for any permit application corrections or revisions, said Upper Keys permit agent Gay Marie Smith. As of April, the county began outsourcing its permit reviews. Miami-based firm M.T. Causley took over much of the process in April. The companys invoices to the county through September total $365,952, said Ed Koconis, Growth Management permit manager.Fees skyrocketFrom Permits, 1A per pound of medium claws to more than $30 per pound for larger claws. Retail prices paid by consumers were significantly higher. The market always dictates the [dockside] prices, Kelly said. Its what the consumers are willing to pay. Going into the season, a state marine biologist who specializes in stone crabs believes that a blood virus that previously killed untold numbers of young crabs may have abated, Kelly said. The hematodinium virus is triggered by red tides in the Gulf of Mexico, and it has been a relatively benign year for red tides, he said. For another thing, Kelly said, its been a quiet hurricane season to date and there are no storms on the horizon. That means nobody has lost a lot of gear and the storms didnt affect the crabs migratory pattern, Kelly said. The fall weather patterns look reasonable. Stone crabs are a unique seafood species in that only legal-size claws more than 2.75 inches can be harvested. After the claws are detached, the crabs are returned to the water to breed and possibly regenerate new claws. Harvesters are encouraged to take only one claw, even if both claws are of legal size, so that the released crab will be better able to defend itself from predators, says the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Florida Keys commercial fleet typically produced from about 60 percent of the statewide harvest of crab claws, Kelly said. Most of the claws taken in Florida remain in the United States, Kelly said. About 1,000 people statewide are licensed to fish traps for stone crabs. The season closes May 15.Crabs pulled on WednesdayFrom Crabs, 1AFEMA refunds comingSome Keys residents might qualify for a refund of their flood insurance premiums from the Federal Emergency Management Agency starting this month, but it likely wont be much. Monday at the Marathon Government Center, David Miller, associate administrator of FEMAs Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, told residents, local elected officials, construction managers and others what to expect under the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act. U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia called the meeting. Congress passed the Affordability Act in March in response to the 2012 Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act that took effect last year. That law caused flood premiums to go through the roof for countless numbers of people throughout the U.S. Florida property owners were hit the hardest. The Affordability Act delays for four years premium hikes for many property owners that were caused by Biggert-Waters to give FEMA time to come up with better risk models. Most property owners in the Keys have their flood insurance through FEMAs National Flood Insurance Program. Banks require it for mortgages. Miller said Monday that rebates for those hit under Biggert-Waters will average around $100. A lot of people will say I thought I was due a rebate or I got one but wanted it to be more, Miller said. Were hoping that the refunds will be done by the first of the year. [The process] will be confusing. The owners of second homes and so-called preFIRM houses were hit the hardest under BiggertWaters. Pre-FIRM (flood insurance rate maps) houses are those built prior to January 1975, when FEMAs flood insurance rate maps were created. Many of these homes are older and built at or below base level elevation. The refunds are expected to last until Dec. 31. While the rebates will be available to a widerange of property owners, some policies are expected to increase until they reach their current full-risk rate. They include: Older business properties with subsidized rates. Older non-primary residences insured with subsidized rates. Severe repetitive loss properties insured with subsidized rates. Buildings that have been substantially damaged or improved after local adoption of flood insurance maps. County Commissioner Heather Carruthers, a cofounder of the grassroots group Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, told Miller and other FEMA representatives that the disaster relief agency needs to address covering homes in highrisk areas in a more affordable approach. There needs to be a new way to adjust rates, Carruthers said, noting that insurance rates change for buildings depending on what theyre used for. The commissioner pointed out how a vacation home and a business have different rates, even if theyre the same building type and side by side. Why are their rates different? she asked. Miller attributed the disparities between policies to FEMAs ongoing mapping efforts and changes to insurance imposed by Congress. Miller agreed risk assessment needs to change but is unsure how it can be applied to homes in high-risk areas. Part of the discussion on flood insurance is how do we change behaviors of people who live and work in a high-risk area? Miller he said. If you want to be scared, look at the investment you made, take insurance away and ask what will replace it. This is one of the most important discussions you will have.But property owners shouldnt expect big checksFLOOD INSURANCEBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.com abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJ K AJHAR George Ajhar, age 94, of Marathon, Florida, died at home on Thursday October 2nd, 2014. George was born on August 6, 1920 in Phillipsburg, NJ and spent most of his life there. He was a son of the late Louis and Nora Skirt Ajhar. He moved to Florida in 2000. He was predeceased by his wife, Helene McInerney in 1985 and his granddaughter, Jean Evans, in 2012. He is survived by Eleanor Campbell, his companion of many years, and his children; Georgia Ajhar Evans and Joseph Cheszar of Nazareth, Pa.; Joseph Ajhar and wife Patricia of Medford, Oregon; Nora Ajhar Kraeuter of Palmer Twp., Pa.; and David Ajhar of Phillipsburg, NJ. Grandchildren are Ben Ajhar and wife Sarah, and Nathan Ajhar, all of Oregon. Funeral services were held at The Finegan Funeral Home, 302 Heckman St., Phillipsburg, NJ.

Losses have been estimated at $300 million. In the Keys alone, hundreds of people lost their jobs when the company went belly-up. On Friday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow denied a motion by Dave Clark to separate newly filed Cay Clubs charges from earlier counts of mail-fraud and obstruction related to a Cayman Islands firm that operated a network of Caribbean pawn shops. Tavernier bank accounts opened as part of the complex Cay Clubs operations were later used by the Clarks to siphon money from CMZ Group, the Cayman firm, prosecutors said in June. Evidence of the Cay Clubs conspiracy is required to prove the obstruction count and is inextricably intertwined with the CMZ conspiracy, Snow concluded. The magistrate also granted a prosecution motion to delay the Clarks scheduled November trial on combined CMZ and Cay Clubs charges. Pretrial discovery likely will not be finished by the Nov. 3 trial date, and Key West has a shortage of hotel rooms in November, Snow ruled. No new date was announced.Judge wont separate casesFrom Cay Clubs, 1AInstead of the $2,000 bill he was expecting, which was on the letter, he was told to pay $10,250.

Slips 7BC AND 8BC Marathon Open 7 Days A Week Along with Solis, the vetting committee consists of Planning Director George Garrett, Building Official John Woodson, Key Westbased architect William Horn and Steve Grasely from Solaria Design & Consulting Co. Under Florida law, construction bids are private 10 days after the date of the opening bid. The bid proposals become public record after 10 days. The primary thing well be looking at is are the bids complete? Did they cover all the aspects of construction required and are the fees and prices in the quote reasonable? Grasely said. Of the six companies, we certainly believe of them can be selected for the project. According to the bid details, city hall, now housed in trailers at U.S. 1 and 99th Street, will be 15,000 square feet on the current city office property. Plans call for a 150seat, 3,456-square-foot meeting hall, about 9,700 square feet of office space and a 1,700 square-foot lobby. Should the bids be approved this month, construction could begin by the end of the year, with the project finalized by early 2016. City law allows for Monroe County-based contractors to get a local preference, meaning they can be chosen if their bid is within 2 percent of the low non-local bid. In March, the council unanimously voted down a $6.68 million bid from Lake Worth-based West Construction Inc. and a $7.14 million bid from BotsfordOverholt Construction out of Marathon. Then-city Finance Director Peter Rosasco told the council in February that construction costs could not exceed $4.5 million or the citys other capital projects would be jeopardized.Bids come inFrom City Hall, 1A Lumber & Building Materials Roofing Millwork Doors & Windows Landscaping Materials Delivery Service1109 Eaton Street Key West, Florida 33040 Phone (305) 294-5900 Fax (305) 294-4577www.manleydeboer.com 157 Industrial Road Big Pine Key, Florida 33043 Phone (305) 872-0002 Fax (305) 872-3700Spate of new signs riles someThe Five Man Electrical Band sang about the plethora of signs blocking out the scenery in the heady, politically charged days of the late s. A new version of that song could be written about the Upper Keys, where the Florida Department of Transportation has placed various types of signs it says are needed to protect commuters, residents and tourists. But many residents are upset about what they consider to be visual pollution. Weve got to stop this, said Plantation Key resident Nancy Wells. Caroline Burke of Key Largo agrees: How is one supposed to keep their eyes on the road when we are supposed to read all these signs? Paulette Summers, an FDOT spokeswoman, said the signs are part of the ongoing road widening projects in Tavernier and Islamorada. Summers said the agency will most likely have additional signage implemented within both project limits (mile marker 90.74 to mile marker 97) and Islamorada, (mile marker 81.42 to mile marker 85.6), as this ensures the safety of the communities and our construction crews. Summers added that some of the signs being erected are permanent, including those in the Tavernier area. The cost of erecting the signs was not available at press time, Summers said. Most of the signs in question are placed on the corners of side streets along U.S. 1 warning drivers of the possibility of pedestrians crossing. But FDOT has also increased the number of signs instructing drivers what direction they are traveling on the highway. If you need that many, then you dont belong on the highway, Wells said. A number of no-parking signs have also been placed on the right of way in front of Theater of the Sea on the ocean side of mile marker 84.7. Summers said those are likely part of the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Overseas Heritage Trail construction project.DOT says theyre part of project to widen roadUPPER KEYSWoman claims iggy attackA woman staying at a Key West resort was bitten by an iguana there Wednesday night, but the reptile nipped her toe because she harassed the iguana to the point of angering it, according to a city Police Department report. Its not clear who called police to the Coconut Mallory Resort at 1445 N. Roosevelt Blvd., but Amy Russell, 39, reportedly from Alabama, told police the resort-owned iguana bit her toe and she feared contracting salmonella. Most iguanas are wild and the resort doesnt own the bright green mediumsized iguana, Officer Brenda Sellers wrote in her report. Also, iguanas generally stay away from humans and rarely bite. Sellers wrote in her report that Russell, upon showing her toe with bright red toenail polish, was squeezing her toe like she was trying to make it look red. But the officer wrote no injury was visible. Two other women at the resort told Sellers that Russell was pushing her foot toward the iguana, antagonizing it. Sure enough, a video taken of the alleged attack shows her repeatedly shoving her foot towards the animal to the point where the iguana wrapped its mouth around her toe. The iguana got away.But video shows she started itKEY WESTBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKeynoter Staff Photo by DAVID GOODHUEThis pedestrian crossing sign is one of several recently placed along U.S. 1 in Tavernier by the Florida Department of Transportation.

Iguanas were so rare that he would show then off for a fee. Now, of course, theyre everywhere in the Keys and there might very well be more iguanas than people living in the ribbon of islands. Many people consider them nuisances because they can devour certain types of plants and their excrement ends up on pool decks and the like.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALBondi must know the game is overLETTERS TO THE EDITORHeroes aboundOur family would like to express our deep gratitude to the many volunteers who helped in the search for our son, Noah. We are proud to be part of such a supportive and compassionate community. The search and ultimate discovery of Noahs boat and remains has truly been an awe-inspiring story of technical expertise, self-sacrifice, generosity and extreme bravery on the part of those involved. I hope the community realizes what a true blessing we have in the aptly named Rob Bleser of Quiescence Diving Services. Despite numerous challenges, he never gave up looking for our son and coordinating the whole network of volunteers and equipment needed. We couldnt possibly thank him enough for all he did and the professional way in which he conducted the search, including finding the experienced tech divers, Joe Citelli and Steve Muslin, who made the very dangerous 309-foot dive to Noahs sunken boat. We are eternally grateful to these amazing men for their willingness to help a family they did not even know find closure. Because of this experience, weve learned that heroes dont just exist in movies. In fact, true heroes are the real ones your neighbors, friends, and, most incredibly of all, complete strangers who are willing to help in tragic situations like ours. There are too many of these heroes to name in one letter, but to all the volunteers who donated equipment and spent hours on the water and in the air searching for Noah, thank you all so very much. Tanya Cleary Key LargoThanks for fundraiserOn behalf of the staff, board and animals of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, we would like to thank Capt. Spider, Kathy Branch and Porkys Bayside for once again donating the proceeds of their Casting for Charity contest to the Marathon animal shelter. In September, Capt. Spiders contests raised $316 for the shelter. We are so thankful to have people like this in the community who raise money and care for our animals. Its couldnt be done without them. Nycole Romeo Executive director MarathonCrack down on rentalsSome of the goals, objectives and policies of Marathons comprehensive land-use plan are to protect the smalltown family feel of the community; protect existing and increased affordable housing opportunities; protect the existing housing stock; and protect existing uses, densities and intensities. These goals, objectives, and policies are being compromised by the numerous vacation rentals and negatively impacting some of our neighborhoods. The promise to protect the residential neighborhood character and quality of life for our residents has clearly been overlooked when 40 percent or 50 percent or more of homes on a given street are operated as vacation rentals. Many of these frequently rent to 10, 12 or more occupants per household, with half or more of the individuals being adults. Accompanying the many occupants are numerous vehicles and boat trailers covering the properties, overflowing trash cans, noisy parties, uncontrolled pets, etc. There is something seriously wrong with this picture. A Marathon officials recent proposal to cap vacation rentals at 500 units (11 percent of single-family homes) does not go far enough to protect the residents of the community, as promised in the comprehensive plan. The cap needs to extend to individual streets, such as limiting vacation rentals to 10 percent of single-family homes on any street. The city must also establish a better procedure for enforcing vacation rental codes and ordinances. Monitoring vacation rentals and enforcing policy based solely on the number of complaints, or lack thereof, fails to meet the citys responsibility for the strict enforcement of codes and ordinances as promised in the comprehensive plan. It is the duty and responsibility of the property owners and managers to comply with the vacation rental codes and ordinances, and the citys obligation to enforce the codes and ordinance effectively. Jean Tarlton MarathonWith Supreme Courts action, she continues wasting time appealing same-sex marriageNow that the U.S. Supreme Court has green-lighted gay marriage in 30 states and the District of Columbia, its time for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to throw in the towel. There is no good reason to deny equality of marriage for all the people of the Sunshine State, and no sensible reason for Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott to support the ban. By leaving intact five favorable marriage rulings in three separate federal appellate courts, the court sent the strongest signal possible that the indefensible gay marriage ban is all but dead. Bondi surely knows that, and no amount of political grandstanding to appease conservatives prior to the upcoming election can make it otherwise. The courts action has been a long time coming for those who believe in marriage equality. Ever since the nations highest tribunal declared laws against racial intermarriage unconstitutional almost 50 years ago (Loving v. Virginia, 1967), the court has been moving incrementally in the direction of fairness and equality for all. In this century, the 2003 decision striking down anti-sodomy laws and last years decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act effectively, the last legal barrier should have made it obvious to all but the most stubborn defenders of an unjust system that the handwriting was on the wall. Opponents of same-sex marriage have lost a string of decisions ever since. Public opinion has shifted remarkably in support of fairness in the law, a trend that the courts justices must surely have been aware of. But the change in popular feeling is not why the advocates of gender equality in marriage won the day. They won because they had the law and the U.S. Constitution on their side. Sooner or later, marriage equality will be the uncontested law in Florida. Bondi might be able to delay the effective date, but she cannot stop it.

Manager search on holdThe Key West City Commission appointed a seven-person committee in the search for a new city manager in August. But a meeting has yet to be held. Jim Scholl, the interim city manager, has held the position at a one-year salary of $180,000 after replacing City Manager Bob Vitas this past July.The search committee consists of Sam Holland Jr. of the citys Planning Board, Waterfront Playhouse Vice President Bunnie Smith, First State Bank Executive Vice President Kurt Lewin, Coconut Beach Resort General Manager George Galvan and former city commissioners Harry Bethel Sr., Barry Gibson and Bill Verge. City Attorney Shawn Smith said via e-mail that the committee has not met as they all were not in town at the same time until this week. Smith expects it to be an issue at the Oct. 21 City Commission meeting. City Commissioner Billy Wardlow said the possibility of renewing Scholls contract might also be on the agenda. If we renew it, we can disband the search committee, Wardlow said.The City Commission bought out Vitas threeyear contract in July after two years. Commis sioners agreed to pay him more than $97,000 in severance, including sick and leave time. During his tenure, a woman accused Vitas of grabbing her butt at Fantasy Fest. And back in June, Vitas appointed then-retiring Assistant City Manager David Fernandez as the citys utilities director. At the time, Smith called Vitas a liar at a commission meeting, saying Vitas never cleared the contract with legal. That led to his separation from the city. The five-year contract, which was eventually dismissed by Smith, would have paid Fernandez $113,000 annually. Prior to Vitas tenure, Scholl was city manager for five years.Scholl might get renewed for a yearKEY WESTStill no answer on KOTSDespite trying to decide when it met Tuesday night, the Key West City Commission still does not have a relocation site for the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, which house homeless people. After a failed 3-3 vote (with Commissioner Mark Rossi absent) for Mayor Craig Cates resolution to move KOTS to the former Easter Seals property on College Road on Stock Island, Commissioner Tony Yaniz withdrew the resolution he co-sponsored with Commissioner Billy Wardlow, which involved moving KOTS to the soonto-be former city transit facility on Palm Avenue. Residents and commissioners alike debated over the two sites, including whether a new KOTS location, which now serves about 130 homeless people nightly at its current location at the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on Stock Island, would be an overnight or 24-hour, fullservice facility. I think were kind of spinning here, Commissioner Clayton Lopez. The city must move KOTS as part of an earlier lawsuit settlement with the neighboring Sunset Marina Homeowners Association. Based on the settlement, a development plan for KOTS should have already been submitted to the citys Planning Department. Yes, the city is behind on where it should have been in August, City Attorney Shawn Smith said via e-mail. If the city is not using good faith and due diligence in its efforts, Sunset Marina could refile the lawsuit, according to Smith. Also Tuesday, the City Commission agreed to indefinitely postpone a proposed ordinance that would have banned drones without a Federal Aviation Administration certificate in and over the city.Stock Island proposal loses in a tie voteBy ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comKEY WEST By ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comIf the city is not using good faith and due diligence in its efforts, Sunset Marina could refile.

Saturday, October 11, 2014 5A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com BusinessRestaurant reopeningMARATHON A new taste of Italy is coming to Marathon when the Baricci Cafe reopens Oct. 15 under the ownership of Michael and Kate Polsinelli. The restaurant, adjacent to Publix, first opened in September 2011 but suddenly closed earlier this year. Traveling through Europe to learn firsthand how frittatas, meatballs and pizza is crafted in Italy, the Polsinellis are bringing their passion for food to the Keys. Were serving genuine Italian food, Michael said. My family is from a little village between Rome and Naples. We grew up in the restaurant business and spent time in Europe studying food. If you enjoy food, you know food. Fresh ingredients are the staple of the Polsinellis recipes. Pizza sauce consists of whole tomatoes, basil and wine. Eggplants are thinly sliced, dipped and breaded before being baked. Meatballs are hand-rolled and baked at high temperatures in a convection oven, which Michael said helps to seal the flavor without the grease. You can feel the texture in the sauce, the taste is totally different, he said. Today, people are more health-conscious. Were cooking more with baking in mind. Eggs are front and center on the breakfast menu. Customers can order frittatas, meaning egg cake in Italian. Eggs will also be served with sauteed peppers. A breakfast sandwich of Panini bread and mozzarella cheese is also an option. Imported coffee, steak and bacon round out the breakfast menu. The Polsinellis also bring their New York roots to the business, with steak sandwiches using sliced cheese instead of Cheez Whiz, common to Philly-style steak sandwiches. The pizzas, while influenced by Italian ingredients, come in either 14or 18-inch pies and can be bought by the slice, with a number of different toppings. Sabrett hot dogs will be imported from New York. We want to win the locals over, Michael said. People can sit and eat or call and put an order in. Delivery will possibly come later. The couple bought the cafe in July after it closed earlier this year. The interior has seen some renovations, such as newly painted walls and tables. The Baricci Cafe is at 61 53rd St. Hours are planned from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

Lawsuit on tap at World of BeerWorld of Beers Key West outpost is in some civil upheaval less than a year and a half after opening. Alfa Professional HR Services Inc., based in Homosassa, south of Crystal River on the states west coast, sued Tampa-based World of Beer Franchising Inc. in August in Hillsborough County Circuit Court over official control of the 511 Greene St. location, according to the lawsuit. Alfa acquired a 60 percent controlling interest of franchisee Craft Culture Key West LLC after a Jan. 31 agreement. Then, after a February meeting with World of Beer executives to secure any necessary approvals, Alfa assumed operation and invested more than $400,000 in the location to save it from financial disaster, Alfa President Jeff Conley said in a prepared statement. However, Conley said that about two months after the meeting, World of Beer told us for the first time that the approval wasnt really an approval. World of Beer, according to the lawsuit, then demanded numerous additional documents as well as a $5,000 transfer fee. World of Beers franchise agreement says a transfer in ownership also means a franchise transfer and, as such, additional conditions. World of Beer said in a July 2014 letter through its legal team that since the transfer conditions have not been satisfied, Alfa is not the owner of record of the franchisee. However, state Division of Corporations records show that the registered owner of Craft Culture Key West changed to Alfa Sept. 22. Previous owner Craig Wynn did not respond to multiple requests for comment. World of Beer declined further comment, citing the lawsuit. The next mediation hearing is scheduled in Hillsborough Circuit Court for Nov. 10. World of Beer has more than 30 locations across Florida. The Greene Street location opened in March 2013 and features more than 60 beers on tap.Company sues over control of Key West siteKEY WEST By ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comCudjoe sewers might get deep-well injectionA new deepwater injection well for treated wastewater, with costs estimated at nearly $7 million, will be proposed Friday to Monroe County commissioners as an addition to the Cudjoe Key sewage treatment plant. Commissioner Danny Kolhage put forth a resolution to approve the deepwater well at the boards Key West meeting at the Harvey Government Center. The meeting, originally scheduled Oct. 15, was moved to Oct. 17 because of other meeting conflicts. Kolhages resolution says the county should exceed minimum environmental requirements on effluent discharge in order to protect and safeguard the quality of valuable nearshore waters of the Florida Keys. Conservation groups and private citizens in July jointly filed an appeal over renewal of state permits that allow the Cudjoe plant to use four shallow-water injection wells rather than a deepwater well. The shallow-water wells, already drilled at cost of about $300,000, would funnel effluent into bedrock about 120 feet down. A deepwater well would go about 2,000 feet into the bedrock, which accounts for the significantly higher price. The depth of injection wells was among Monroe County sewage issues debated at a state administrative law hearing held earlier this month. The judge had not issued a ruling at press time. State rules allow treatment plants to use shallowwater wells for average daily discharge of fewer than 1 million gallons of effluent per day. Estimates for the Cudjoe plants average have put at 840,000 gallons. When complete, the Cudjoe system would have around 9,000 connections from Cudjoe to Big Pine. Cost is $162 million to $170 millionIn other items Friday, commissioners are scheduled to consider: Changes to the county land-use plan that would allow governmental agencies to dredge or vacuum several feet of organic material from canals to help restore water quality.

Stories, 5B and 6BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Conchs shock CanesIt tends to happen every year: Burdened with a losing record, the Key West High volleyball team suddenly shines and the loyal home crowd goes wild. It happened again Tuesday evening at the Bobby Menendez Gym. The Conchs, after losing the first game, stunned district rival Coral Shores, 3-1. The Hurricanes of Tavernier, who had defeated the Conchs twice this season, came into the match with an 8-9 record, gaudy compared with the 3-9 mark of Key West. When the first game began with Key West scoring after Natalie Hepworth made a great left-handed of a powerful shot by the Melissa Helphrey, it looked like it could be the Conchs night. But that soon seemed a mirage as the Hurricanes erased a 3-0 deficit with a 19-7 run, mainly behind the serving of Dannielle Christmas. Two kills by Helphrey and two serve aces by Skylar De Moss closed out a 25-12 victory. In the second game, Key West junior Sarah Pike took over. When she put down a shot after a set by Brooke Stanyer to give the Conchs a 19-15 lead, students in the top row of the bleachers chanted, Sar-ah Pike, Sarah Pike. Thus inspired, she served the final two points of the game for a 25-16 victory and it was 1-1. Two points by Samantha Golden broke open a tight third game in which both teams played great defense. The Conchs made only four errors while the Hurricanes had 10. They let us unforce error ourselves out of the match, Canes coach Andy Thiery said. Pike scored three of the last five points one on a shot from the back row, one on a tip and one on a shot to an open floor that ended the game at 25-15. Sar-ah Pike, Sa-ah Pike, the students chanted. Coral Shores was in trouble, and Key West sensed it. Pike opened the fourth game with an ace. Golden made it 3-0 with two consecutive points (Gold-en, Gold-en carried down from the top row). After two more Golden points and two Pike aces, it was 70. With his team later down, 15-5, Thiery called time. The Hurricanes quickly came alive. After two kills by Helphrey and two befuddling serves by Brooklyn Irwin, it was 1616. But the Conchs scored four points in a row, including a block by Golden and two aces by Pike. Coral Shores got back to within one at 21-20 on a kill by Helphrey, but Golden answered with an ace that made it 22-20 and sent the crowd into a frenzy. With the Hurricanes trailing, 23-21, Helphrey went back to serve. She hit the ball hard but straight into the net. Dejection was still on her face when, a moment later, a teammates shot sailed long to give the Conchs a 25-21 victory and the match. We played like a team, Golden said as she and her teammates basked in the afterglow. They executed what I told them to do, said coach Kim Butler. A great feeling, said Pike.Key West wins after losing the first gameBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP VOLLEYBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West High volleyball players celebrate the deciding point in game four of Tuesdays match against Coral Shores.Conchs take the county titleThe Key West High swim teams dominated the annual county championships on a golden Wednesday afternoon at the Florida Keys Community College pool. The Conch girls amassed 199 points, ahead of Marathon (169) and Coral Shores (111), while the Key West boys (253) easily won over the Dolphins (101) and the Hurricanes (47). It was the third consecutive county-meet victory for the Conch teams. With only four Coral Shores boy swimmers on hand because of illness, the meet lacked its usual drama, especially in the boys relays. Hurricanes star Evin Zekthi, a multiple winner in previous county meets, was among the missing. It wasnt as exciting as it has been in the past, said Key West coach Lori Bosco. We wanted to be pushed. Island Christian School was represented by Raul Cisneros, who won the 100yard freestyle in 52.38 seconds, nipping Key Wests Chris Bujak. Among the Key West girl individual winners was Morgan Bentley, who won the 200 individual medley by a second over Marathons Noemi Fekete. Kimberlee Reed won the 50 free and her sister, Kristen, won the 100 free. Story Magidson was first in the 200 free. The Coral Shores girls were led by Molly Hunter, who won the 100 back and 100 breast, and Kelsea Volland, who was first in the 100 butterfly (1:04) and the 500 free. The highlight for the Marathon girls came in the last event, when Abby Grace, Audrey Matthis, Hannah Zeils and Fekete teamed to win the 400 free relay. It was the only relay a Key West team failed to win. The boys 50 free was a thriller, with Key Wests Marcus Brisson (23.28) edging Island Christians Cisneros (23.87). The Conchs T.J. Carbone won the 200 free and the 500 free, and Isaiah Green won the 200 IM and the 100 breast. Devin Carson won the 100 backstroke.They defeat Coral Shores and MarathonBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP SWIMMINGRaiders shut out FinsThe Dolphins started out like a lion during Thursday nights football game but were more like a lamb by the end. Ransom Everglades beat Marathon High 29-0 at Marathon, blowing the game wide open in the second half. Dolphin football coach Paul Davis thought his team started out strong but couldnt put his finger on why his team fell apart after halftime. Thats a good question. We were high-spirited when we came out for the second half, Davis said. When it comes up to the second half, you can either come out strong or come out flat and we came out flat. Marathons defense played tight during the first half, keeping the score 6-0 in Ransoms favor. The Fins were able to block a kick for the extra point, giving the team momentum going into halftime. But a Raider 60-yard touchdown in the third quarter quickly killed that momentum. The scoring then kept coming as the Raiders defense stifled Marathon. We didnt capitalize off of a few plays in the red zone, Davis said. The touchdown leading into the half hurt us. Offensively, no one really stood out but defensively, I thought we do OK. Marathon had just 83 yards offensively between rushing and passing. Other statistics were not available at press time. Jackson McDonald started his third game at quarterback but wasnt able to move the ball. Defensively, Davis said Victor Coleman and Camron Chaplin kept the line strong on the outside while Trace Goodwin was able to get a few tackles for loss. The 1-5 Dolphins host Palmer Trinity Friday at 7 p.m. in the homecoming parade. Marathon beat Palmer Trinity 42-14 during a spring scrimmage. Were going to try to get the same win for the homecoming crowd, Davis said. The homecoming parade is Thursday starting at 1 p.m. It starts at Boot Key and travels up U.S. 1, ending at Publix at U.S. 1 and Sombrero Beach Road.

Marathon lost 29-0. Palmer too much for FinsMarathon High was outserved, out-blocked and just down right outplayed by defending state champion Palmer Trinity during a Thursday volleyball match at Marathon. The Falcons swept the Fins, winning 25-10, 25-8 and 25-12. There are going to be matches like this. We were outmanned and outgunned, said Marathon coach Kevin Freeman. Trinity can serve the ball where they want. There front line is pretty big, they had four or five girls who are 6 foot or taller. Marathon held its own at the outset of each game, keeping the point count close. But the Falcons blew the games wide open after the first few initial serves. Palmer Trinitys front line dominated the net, forcing Marathon to spike the ball high. Midway through each game, the Falcons were able to exploit the Fins weaknesses, serving to the farthest corners of the court without going out of bounds.State champs beat Marathon in three gamesMARATHON VOLLEYBALLBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.com See Volleyball, 2B

Key West High School will not able to field enough JV players, Conch coaches told Coral Shores athletic staff Friday. The game would have been the only football game between two Florida Keys high-school squads this year. Conference and divisional games left no room on the schedules for in-county varsity games in 2014.Theyre very good volleyball players, Freeman said of the Falcons. They exposed what we didnt do well. But we did go in thinking were going to win this game if you dont have that mindset, you shouldnt be competing. Palmer Trinity may have dominated Marathon for most of the match but that doesnt mean the Fins played poorly. Johnisha Qualls who had four kills and one block. Amanda Bruland had one ace and Jordan Roney had three kills and two assists. The loss puts Marathon at 14-4 overall. The team travels to the mainland Tuesday to face Hollywood Christian, which they beat in four games at a home match earlier this season. Freeman anticipates a victory but knows the girls will have to play their best in they want another winning notch for their record. Theyre a good team, very athletic, Freeman said. If we play the way weve been playing before we faced Trinity, we should be alright.Dolphins travel to HollywoodFrom Volleyball, 1B Keynoter photo By WILLIAM AXFORDBaelee Pettry (on the floor) watches as the volleyball bounces out of bounds after diving for a hit.

Saturday, October 11, 2014 3B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Theyre almost here!! 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. 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.

That is, I certainly knew of them, but Id never made them. And I never knew just how delicious they could be. The first time I made them, I used the original recipe. It was good, but I felt it needed a little more ... something. So I made a batch of my favorite caramel sauce and decided to see what would happen if I dumped some of that in along with the usual butter and marshmallows. It made all the difference. The treats were great and made me think of fall, of caramel apples and Halloween. And so I decided to take my improved treats even further, adding a caramel bourbon glaze. Because who says all Halloween treats have to be for the kids? And then I just kept going. Of course, if you feel the need to share these with the kids, you can always leave out the bourbon, or use bourbon extract instead. And either way, dont feel you need to limit yourself to the candy corn on top. Have at it with any or all of your favorite Halloween candy. It is a holiday of indulgence, after all. What you need for the caramel sauce: 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk. For the bourbon caramel glaze: Half a cup (one stick) unsalted butter, softened. One overflowing teaspoon vanilla extract. Half a teaspoon kosher salt. Two tablespoons halfand-half. One tablespoon bourbon (optional). Two and three-fourths cups powdered sugar. For the bars: Quarter cup (half a stick) unsalted butter, plus extra for the pan. 10-ounce package marshmallows. Five cups Rice Krispies cereal. Coarse sea salt. One cup candy corn. Start by making the caramel sauce. Remove the label from can of sweetened condensed milk, but do not open the can. Place the can in an eight-quart heavy-duty saucepan and add enough water to cover by two inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 2.5 hours. Check the pan regularly during this process, adding water as needed to maintain the level. Using tongs and an oven mitt, carefully remove the can from the pan and set aside to cool for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, proceed with the rest of the recipe. To make the glaze, in a large bowl, combine the butter, vanilla, salt, halfand-half and bourbon, if using. Use an electric mixer to beat until the mixture is creamy. Add the powdered sugar and beat until fully incorporated. Once the can of caramel has cooled, carefully open it. Pour half of it into the butter mixture and beat until well mixed. Set aside. To make the bars, coat a 13-by-9-inch pan with butter. In a large, microwavesafe bowl, microwave the quarter cup of butter on high for 30 seconds, or until melted. Add the marshmallows and toss to coat with the butter. Microwave on high for one minute, then stir until the marshmallows are completely melted. Add the remaining half can of caramel and stir until smooth. Add the Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated. Using wet hands, gently press the cereal mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Spoon the glaze over the cereal mixture, smoothing it as needed. Sprinkle the top with a bit of sea salt, then scatter the candy corns evenly over the surface, gently pressing them into the glaze. Set aside to cool for at least 20 minutes. To serve, cut into two-inch squares. Start to finish: three hours (20 minutes active). Makes 24 bars.

Give em a boost, says Amy Shojai, a certified animal behavior consultant in Sherman, Texas, and author of Complete Care for your Aging Cat and Complete Care for your Aging Dog (Cool Gus Publishing, 2010). Cats love high spots to snooze and lounge, but may not be able to manage the leap. Move a chair or even a cardboard box close to a window or bed to give them a leg up. Ramps and stairs make it easier for older pets to access beds, sofas, countertops and window seats. There are folding, carpeted ramps that can go in the car or be easily stored. Solvit makes a high-traction ramp that attaches to stairs or the lift of an SUV to help arthritic dogs. The collapsible, ultra-light design makes it handy for travel or car errands. And at home, carpeted or upholstered portable pet stairs can be positioned wherever a pet needs to go up or down. Look for ones that sit firmly on the ground, with a good wide stair base. Many come in a range of materials to coordinate with your decor (www.wayfair.com). Pets with hip or back problems might appreciate having their food bowl raised up off the floor. Raised dishes in frames made of metal, wood, plastic or ceramic ease the strain on aging necks. Some can be height-adjusted.Body tempHeating pads and beds soothe achy arthritis and help older pets become more flexible, says Shojai. A heating pad slipped underneath the small pets regular bed or blanket may do the trick. The Lectro Kennel electric pad can be temperature adjusted. (www.petco.com). If overheating is the issue, consider the Cool Pet Pad. Its gel-filled and activated by the animals weight, staying cool for three to four hours. You can place it in a crate or car, on the floor, or on a bed to help ease overheating or inflammation (www.allmodern.com).Sleep tightMemory-foam mattresses and pillows have been a boon to pets. Six inches of foam covered in microfiber and fleece makes a cozy snooze spot in the Great Paw Triple Support Orthopedic Pillow (www.allmodern.com ). Kohls stocks the Happy Hounds dog bed, capacious enough for large breeds but easily accommodating two or three diminutive friends on a soft, Sherpa-fleece-covered mattress (www.kohls.com) .Heating pads, foam bedding help with ageBy KIM COOKAssociated PressOUR PETS Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSFolding steps like these help ease the transport of elderly pets and can be conveniently stored at home or in your vehicle.LIVING BRIEFSFree spay, neuter clinic on TuesdayThe Key Largo Animal Shelter has a free spay and neuter clinic scheduled for Tuesday for Upper Keys residents.

Staged at Keys Fisheries Market and Marina, at the end of 35th Street bayside in Marathon, the consumption competition is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Entrants must register and be present by noon the day of the event. Individual entry fee is $50; two-person teams can register for $100. Contestants must be at least age 18. Interested eaters are encouraged to register early for their bib-wearing spot at the table. Contestants must crack, clean and eat 25 stone crab claws in the fastest time. Although they are provided with shell crackers, alternatively, entrants can gently smack the shell with the back of a large spoon -an effective method employed by many Keys locals. In the event of a tie, those competitors must face off in a 10-claw competition to determine the top winner. Prizes are to be awarded to the top three finishers. The individual first-place winner is to receive a twonight stay at Marathons Holiday Inn Express, the second-place finisher earns a dolphin swim encounter at the Dolphin Research Center and the third-place consumer is to be awarded a snorkel trip for two with Captain Hooks Marina & Dive Center. Top team prizes also are to be awarded. Stone crab season runs from Oct. 15 to May 15 and hundreds of thousands of pounds of stone crab claws are steamed, cracked and served at local markets and restaurants, and transported around the nation. The Keys are Floridas top supplier of the succulent crustacean, considered a renewable resource because of the crabs ability to re-grow harvested claws.

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday, October 11, 2014 Days of fantasy start this week in Key WestInhibitions are let loose for 10 days starting Oct. 17 with the advent of the annual Fantasy Fest in Key West, a masking and costuming bacchanal that reaches its peak with a decadent Oct. 25 parade down Duval Street. The theme is Animeted Dreams & Adventures, inspired by traditional Japanese anime and virtually all forms of creative animation. More than 40 masquerade parties, costume contests and themed events are scheduled during the festival. Participants are encouraged to draw costume and float concepts from the festival theme, whether portraying characters from classic anime, comic books like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series or animated film blockbusters such as Frozen. Stylistic influences might include the drawings in manga publications and the costumed role-playing phenomenon known as cosplay. Events begin Oct. 17 with the Tropical Escapades and Trances Royal Coronation Ball to crown the festival king and queen, held at the Southernmost Beach Cafe, 1405 Duval St. The king and queen are whichever royalty candidates have raised the most money for AIDS Help through various fundraisers the past several months. Another festival highlight is the Oct. 21 Animelistic Head Trip Headdress Ball, featuring prizes for the best masks and headdresses at Southernmost on the Beach, 508 South St. Typically sporting feathers, glitter and offbeat accessories, many entries tower high above their wearers heads in a lavish display of design artistry. The next day brings the quirky Pet Masquerade and Parade, where costumed dogs, cats, birds and more prance across an oceanfront stage at the Casa Marina Resort, 1500 Reynolds St. Contestants might dress as bumbling Kung Fu Pandas, undaunted Underdogs or cosplay Catwomen during the animal antics. The animated action takes to the streets Oct. 24 during the Fantasy Fest Street Fair, where vendors offer masks and costumes, crafts, food and libations. Just before sunset, the Masquerade March of exotically garbed characters parades from the Key West Cemetery through historic Old Town. Then on Oct. 25, tens of thousands of people are expected to turn out for the parade. The spectacle typically includes feather-bedecked marching groups, Caribbean bands and elaborate motorized floats, all promenading through downtown.

People are everywhere along the waterfront and downtown. At the restaurants and cafes, the chatter is almost rhythmic. Theres nothing quite like a Cuban city on a Friday night. Among the crowds, little beggars bounce around the legs of patrons bar stools and tables, unafraid and agile, just waiting for a crumb to fall. Sometimes they jump up and land directly on the arm of a quickly charmed diner to take an offering, staying with the same group during the meal. These Cuban finches have it figured out. One year later in Key West, three locals and a married couple from Atlanta are embarking on a days fishing charter. The plan: Offshore trolling in the morning, then deep ledges and wrecks for the remainder of the day. Right away, one of the anglers, Kevin Chicoski, food and beverage manager at the Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina in Islamorada, mentioned his birthday was the day before. Thats when the Cuban finch landed on my starboard outrigger. Within minutes, the fearless bird into the cockpit and joined the crew. This bird was looking for a rest after a long flight. It would stay with us the entire day. To keep the bird around for a while, we switched to drifting the deep ledges. Each drift over the deep ledge was met with a bent rod by a yelloweye snapper, blueline tilefish, almaco jack, American red snapper or vermillion snapper. The bite was on and the crew was engaged. Kevins girlfriend Val Masto, also from Islamorada, had taken it upon herself to make sure the little bird was out of harms way as each angler fought his or her fish. She would scoot the bird back up to the seating area of the Premium Time only to have it fly down and land on an angler or the filet table for a bite of fresh bait. The bird had become so comfortable with the crew that each person was able to hold the finch numerous times. Then the bird flew up to me in the upper helm station. I, too, became charmed by the little traveler. I reached out to it and he jumped right onto my hand and posed for a closeup. Here we were, into the later hours of a charter, and here I was, holding what I believed to be a true Cuban finch that maybe had been part of the street scene of Havana that Friday night. His behavior was so familiar. But our time together was getting ready to end as I prepared to move the boat to a wreck a few miles away. The birds that hitch a ride with us will usually move on once the boat gets on plane. Not the case with this bird. My deckhands A.J. Hally and Sam McGinley agreed we were going to have to upgrade our equipment. Each drift on the wreck was met with very large and unstoppable fish that were cutting us off on the structure. It was time to go big. The Cuban finch that had been with us all day was still there, casually eating and watching our dilemma. A live jack was sent down on the 50W International outfit and instantly eaten by a beast. I put the boat in gear hoping to drag the large fish away from the structure, which worked. Thirty minutes later, a large Goliath grouper popped up to the surface, surprising angler Michael Migliore by the sheer size. As Sam leadered the grouper, our Cuban finch stowaway landed on his back. So there we were the finch, a group of locals, a pair of Atlanta residents and a landed giant grouper off Key West. Chicoski and David Barger jumped in the water to help deflate the Goliath grouper, enabling it to swim back to the bottom. Both raised their arms in triumph after the fish disappeared into the blue. We all knew this day was special as our bow turned toward Key West. After backing into the slip at the A&B Marina, the finch bounded across the transom and onto the dock toward the Friday night crowd gathered at the Boathouse restaurant. The Cuban finch now lives in Key West. Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters.Cuban finch joins anglers on a charterA Cuban finch lands on the upper helm of the Premium Time.
